Organizers say they will be taking a public stand against female genital mutilation, honor violence, the blasphemy and apostasy laws, among other elements of Shariah that are increasingly showing up in American society.

Brigitte Gabriel, the founder of ACT For America, said America is now starting to experience some of the same atrocities of Shariah that her family escaped in Lebanon decades ago.

NKOREA BOASTS: US CAN’T STOP “SHOWER OF NUCLEAR STRIKES


010816northkorea

A spokesman for the Strategic Force of the Korean People’s Army told KCNA state news agency that the US ballistic missile interceptor test conducted on Tuesday “is just a serious military provocation that brings to light the US imperialists’ wild ambition for igniting a nuclear war.”

He called the interceptor test a “risky act” that indicates US “preparations for unleashing a nuclear war against” North Korea. Such “foolhardy moves” of the US military only prove that North Korea’s “bolstering the nuclear force for self-defense is entirely just,” according to the spokesman.

The US military, however, did not call the target of the test an “an ICBM from North Korea” or even imply it. An unnamed Pentagon official told Stars and Stripes that the test was planned “years in advance” and was not a direct response to recent North Korean ballistic missile tests.

The test was hailed by the Pentagon as an “incredible accomplishment” representing a “critical milestone” for the anti-missile program.

“This test demonstrates that we have a capable, credible deterrent against a very real threat,” US Missile Defense Agency chief Vice Admiral James D. Syring said in a statement.

North Korea, however, dismissed the results of the test as a “bluff,” as the ICMB interception system, according to the spokesman, would not prevent the “shower of nuclear strike” from North Korea.

“They are now bluffing, bragging about the ‘success’ in the test and the efficiency of the missile interception system. But the DPRK considers it just as a foolish act of those driven to despair,” the spokesman said. “The last-ditch gambling of the Trump administration for a nuclear war will only bring earlier the day when the US mainland will turn into ashes.”

The ability of Pyongyang to “hit US mainland” at the moment is doubtful, as all of the recently tested ballistic missiles have been short to medium range. The latest missile, launched on May 28, flew 450 kilometers before landing in the Sea of Japan, about 300km off the Japanese coast. In May, Pyongyang announced that it had successfully tested the Pukguksong-2 intermediate range ballistic missile as a projectile was detected landing in international waters off Japan’s east coast.

North Korea, poses a “clear and present danger” to the US, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said on Friday, stressing that Pyongyang actions “are manifestly illegal under international law,” as they violate UN Security Council resolutions.

“The current North Korean program signals a clear intent to acquire nuclear-armed ballistic missiles, including those of intercontinental range, that pose direct and immediate threats to our regional allies, partners and all the world,” Mattis said.

FLASHBACK: KATHY GRIFFIN PROMISES TO ‘BEAT DOWN’ 11-YEAR-OLD BARRON TRUMP


barron-griffin.jpg

Following Trump’s election win, Griffin vowed to not only target “President Piece of Shit” but also the young Barron Trump.

“Now more than ever we must absolutely go for all the absurdities,” Griffin told Vulture at the time. “For me, that’s Trump and all things Trump. It’s not about trying to be an equal-opportunity offender anymore because Hillary got such a beat down.”

“It’s his turn. So I’m happy to deliver beat down to Donald Trump — and also to Barron,” the comedian continued. “You know a lot of comics are going to go hard for Donald, my edge is that I’ll go direct for Barron. I’m going to get in ahead of the game.”

Griffin, who recently received immense backlash after posing with a decapitated head resembling Trump, attempted to shift the blame onto the First Family for her distasteful decision.

WHY WON’T THE LEFT ATTACK BILDERBERG, THE REAL 1% DOMINATED BY WHITE MALES?


060217bilderbergdudes

Why does the Left ignore Bilderberg when it’s literally made up of mostly white males who represent .0001% of the world’s population?

Bernie Sanders launched an entire presidential campaign on striking back against the 1%, and he was also a proponent of diversity, so why won’t Bernie supporters speak out against Bilderberg?

The secretive group currently meeting in Chantilly, Virginia, is the source of all the problems Bernie Sanders campaigned on.

“[Bilderberg is] trumpeting the diversity of a conference where less than 25% of the participants are female, which would be a huge step forward, if it were currently 1963,” the Guardian’s Charlie Skelton pointed out. “And as for racial diversity, there are more senior executives of Goldman Sachs at this year’s Bilderberg than there are people of color.”

“Perhaps by ‘diverse’ they mean that some of the participants own hedge funds, whereas others own vast industrial conglomerates. Some are on the board of HSBC, others are on the board of BP. Some are lobbyists, others are being lobbied. That sort of thing.”

So why won’t the Left separate itself from corporate-controlled globalism? You would think a group of unelected bankers and corporate masters controlling the fate of humanity would be the PERFECT enemy of the Left.

Especially when they’re old, white elitists.

The Left is predominantly anti-war, yet Bilderberg was behind many of the world’s major conflicts.

The Left is for eradicating poverty, yet Bilderberg wants to concentrate the world’s wealth and resources to a handful of people.

The Left is for diversity, yet Bilderberg and similar global bodies lack diversity despite steering major world events.

The Left demands open, representative democracy, yet Bilderberg meets in secret behind closed doors without a record of the proceedings.

So why won’t liberals dump the globalists and stand up for the values that supposedly represent the Left?

Please send this article to every leftist you know.

Democrats see political opportunity in Trump’s decision to abandon Paris climate deal


Botsford170601Trump16019.jpg

President Trump’s triumphant Rose Garden ceremony announcing his withdrawal from the Paris climate agreement sent a message loud and clear to his supporters: Promise kept.

But the move also served as a clarion call to angry Democrats, potentially complicating the political path for Republicans facing tough midterm challenges and, ultimately, Trump’s own reelection bid.

Trump, whose approval rating has hovered around 40 percent for most of his presidency, probably did not gain new converts with his decision, and Democrats now see an opportunity to further intensify the focus of their base in the 2018 midterm elections. They also foresee the climate-change decision as a key part of their broader argument to college-educated swing voters who have been among Trump’s weakest supporters.

“He’s unleashed a number of forces that I don’t think he understands that ultimately are going to work against him,” said Tad Devine, a longtime political strategist and former adviser to the presidential run of Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont. “People are interpreting this not as my house is going to be flooded tomorrow, but our federal government is being run by people who don’t care about science.”

Trump’s gamble could pay off. If the pace of economic growth quickens and jobs return for his core supporters, he could point to the decision to exit the accord as proof of his leadership, his backers say.

Meeting the Paris Climate Goals Was Always Hard. Without the U.S., It Is Far Harder.

What was the Paris climate agreement — and what else do you need to know about climate politics?


imrs.jpg

It’s official — on June 1, President Trump announced that “the United States will withdraw from the Paris Climate Accord,” but suggested that he would be open to new negotiations that are “fair” to the United States.

Here at the Monkey Cage, we’ve provided in-depth analysis over the years on the Paris accord, climate change, energy security and environmental developments. For a full listing of these posts, see below.

In our June 1 post, Joshua Busby at the University of Texas answers the big questions: What does this mean, and what’s next? He writes, “Under the normal rules of the agreement, the United States cannot withdraw until November 2020,” but “there is a nuclear option.”

Jessica F. Green, an New York University professor and frequent contributor on environmental policy topics, explains why the Trump decision would not roll back the considerable U.S. progress on environmental protection. She notes, “States, cities and many companies in the United States realize that sensible climate policy is, well, sensible.” With U.S. companies pursuing green options and U.S. utilities phasing out coal-powered plants, she points out that the U.S. government does not control — or make — many of these decisions.

Monkey Cage contributors have also looked closely at the Paris accord itself. Was there too much flexibility in the wording? What made the Paris accord different from other climate change negotiations? More broadly, what happens to global security if the effects of climate change force millions to migrate? And what are the nuts and bolts of energy politics, aviation emissions  and U.S. energy conservation programs? We invite you to keep reading.

Ivanka Trump’s Worst Week in Washington


Ivanka Trump has long been cast as the one person that her father — aka the President of the United States — really, truly listens to.

So, when she formally joined the White House earlier this year, many people who were deeply concerned about the direction Donald Trump would take the country viewed it as a a major step in the right direction.
But, through the first 134 days of Donald Trump’s presidency, Ivanka has been far more talk than action. And her inability to deliver results came to a head this week as Ivanka failed to convince her father to keep the US in the Paris climate accord.
“I was elected to represent the citizens of Pittsburgh — not Paris,” Trump thundered in his Rose Garden speech announcing that the US would join Nicaragua and Syria as the only three countries who are not part of the Paris accords.
It was a statement — and a sentiment — right out of the mind of Steve Bannon, chief strategist in the Trump White House and someone with whom Jared Kushner, Ivanka Trump’s husband, has repeatedly clashed over the first four-plus months of the administration.
Bannon represents a hard-charging, nationalist, populist, anti-establishment view of politics. Ivanka and her husband — “Javanka” for short — are far more liberal and moderate-minded.
Bannon’s views won out on this issue, due in no small part to the fact that Trump promised to get out of Paris during the campaign and felt compelled to make good on that pledge to appease his political base.
For Ivanka, this week serves as a blunt reminder that, despite her considerable influence with her father, she has yet to affect major changes — or even minor ones — in his views since coming to the White House.
On virtually every issue — trade, immigration, healthcare and now climate — Trump has sided with his political base rather than his daughter and her husband. Whether “Javanka” want to admit it or not, that’s embarrassing given the role in the White House
they quite clearly envisioned for themselves.
Publicly, Ivanka’s serenity is unbothered. This comes from a terrific story in Politico:
“Ivanka Trump and her husband, Jared Kushner, have taken the defeat in stride, according to two people familiar with their thinking on the issue. Their view of their roles in the
White House is that they’re playing the long game, helping the President to be successful. And they don’t tally their own influence day by day or bill by bill.”
Riiiiiiiight. Relatedly, I am playing the “long game” on making it to the NBA.
None of this means that Ivanka — or Jared — is going anywhere anytime soon. They aren’t. And, if they do, it will be their choice, not because President Trump pushes them out.
But, what this week disproved — or at least poked holes in — is the notion that Ivanka Trump can get her father to do what she wants when she really sets her mind to it.
Ivanka, for realizing that no one rules Donald Trump but Donald Trump, you had the Worst Week in Washington. Congrats, or something.

World media look to green future without US


_96315835_climategraphic.jpg

Frustration with the US is flowing freely in global media following President Donald Trump’s announcement that his country would withdraw from the Paris climate agreement signed in 2015 by 195 countries.

European newspapers see an opportunity to move forward without the burden of appeasing a reluctant partner in Washington.

And in China, state-run media see their country ascending to a position of global leadership on the issue of climate change.

The announcement also triggered a global conversation on social media, with climate-related hashtags trending worldwide.

Europe

Newspapers on the continent generally expressed disappointment at the decision, but saw in it an opportunity for Europe to forge a new path.

French centre-left daily Le Monde said that the decision had “widened the gap of mistrust” and noted that Mr Trump’s mantra of “America First” seems to be leading the country to ever greater isolation.

Similarly, the French financial newspaper Les Echos says America is now part of a “trio of marginalised” nations, along with Syria and Nicaragua, who are not part of the deal. It adds that the move has not “signed the death warrant” of the agreement.

France’s left-wing Libération newspaper took a more personal view of the Mr Trump, saying: “Since his accession to the White House, the US president has believed he is on a reality show. Except for the fact that this is no longer a game, it is about the future of the planet.”

_96315921_parisien_plain.jpg

A commentary in Germany’s centre-right Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung sees a certain “cold logic” in Mr Trump’s move, in that he appears to prefer to deal with migration with “walls and weapons” rather than action to limit global warming.

“[The US] is reducing its financial contribution to global climate protection while boosting funding for the military and homeland security,” writes its Washington correspondent, Winand von Petersdorff.

Trump ‘shakes global community’

Germany’s conservative Die Welt sees something positive in Trump’s decision, saying it will actually be good for the Paris agreement to lose countries who do not believe in it.

“Those whose take part half-heartedly or even dishonestly are likely to undermine its agenda from the inside,” says a commentary by the paper’s science editor, Norbert Lossau.

A presenter on Russia’s state-controlled Channel One TV said that Mr Trump has “shaken the global community once again”.

And state-owned newspaper Rossiyskaya Gazeta was more sympathetic to Mr Trump than most, saying he had “stood up against Americans paying for the USA’s ‘climatic leadership’, getting nothing in return, except for sweet-voiced chants of European politicians”.
