Google Approves App For Muslims To Report People Who Commit Blasphemy…

 

Wow.

Via BLP:

A new Android app has launched with the focus of allowing Muslims to report individuals who commit blasphemy, or insult Islam.

No, this is not a joke. The app, “Smart Pakem”, which launched in Indonesia last month at the request of the Indonesian government, will allow users and government officials to uphold Sharia law and target and report people who hold “misguided” beliefs in violation of Islamic law, which forbids insults of Islam, insults against the Prophet Mohammed, or the recognition of any other religion besides Islam.

Indonesia’s criminal code prohibits blasphemy, which is defined as “the act or offense of speaking sacrilegiously about God or sacred things”.

The Code’s Article 156(a) targets those who deliberately, in public, “express feelings of hostility, hatred, or contempt against religion”. The penalty for violating Article 156(a) of Indonesia’s criminal code is a maximum of five years imprisonment.

Rajan Anandan, who serves as the VP of Google in south-east Asia, has not shown any resistance to the app, which is available in the Google app store.

The National Secular Society (NSS) has since written to Anadan requesting the Google not stock the app in the app store, arguing that the app will have negative consequences for religious minorities and will further minimize freedom of expression.

Chicago Dems Get Caught Red-Handed Committing Election Fraud

Despicable. The Chicago way!!!

Via Chicago Tribune:

The history of the little guy being squashed by massive Chicago political clout at election time is just too long to print without weeping.

But the story for today is so amazing that some Chicago election officials have never seen the like.

“No one can remember anything approaching this,” said an election official.

It’s overkill of epic proportions, like using a sledgehammer to kill a gnat, or firing off a nuclear weapon to kill a sparrow. A Southwest Side David vs. Goliath story.

The David is David Krupa, 19, a freshman at DePaul University who drives a forklift part time. He’s not a political powerhouse. He’s just a conservative Southwest Side teenager studying political science and economics who got it in his head to run for alderman in a race that pits him against the most powerful ward organization in Chicago.

The Goliath is the 13th Ward Democratic Organization run by House Speaker Michael J. Madigan, aka Boss Madigan, the most powerful politician in the state. Boss Madigan has long hand-picked his aldermen. He likes them loyal and quiet. The current silent alderman of the 13th Ward is Marty Quinn.

“Old Coots” Set Up Table At Farmer’s Market to Give Free Life Advice

 

A group of retired friends from Salt Lake City, Utah used to meet every Saturday at a friend’s deli, where they’d drink coffee and shoot the breeze. It was a nice way to spend retirement… until they all outlived their respective material. Realizing they’d already heard all of each others’ stories and knew everything interesting about each other already, deli owner Tony Caputo decided to get a card table and rent a tent at the farmer’s market across the street so the group could give out free advice to strangers instead of listening to each other.

Caputo wasn’t kidding. He and his friends set up the “Old Coots Giving Advice” tent, complete with an official banner and the slogan, “It’s probably bad advice, but it’s free.” It was all pretty much a joke at first. A way for the group to liven up their Saturdays. But then something funny happened: people started showing up, and with some serious questions.

And the Old Coots — comprised of Gus Wheeler, Lou Borgenicht, Carol Sisco, Chris Vanocur, Tony Caputo and John Lesnan — give them real, thoughtful answers.

9th Circuit Blocks Trump’s Effort To Stop False Asylum Claims By Illegal Aliens

 

I’m NOT a Trump fan by any means, but this is total BS!! No judge, with the exception of “justices” on the Supreme Court, can Legislate from the bench!……Papa Mike

 

 

The United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit has jurisdiction over the district courts in the following districts:
  • District of Alaska.
  • District of Arizona.
  • Central District of California.
  • Eastern District of California.
  • Northern District of California.
  • Southern District of California.
  • District of Hawaii.

Claims for asylum have more than tripled despite the fact that most don’t qualify. But they know they will then be released into the U.S. and can just disappear.

Via Daily Caller:

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a temporary restraining order against a Trump administration policy that denies asylum to illegal aliens.

The 2-1 decision is the latest setback the 9th Circuit has rendered to President Donald Trump’s immigration agenda.

“Just as we may not, as we are often reminded, ‘legislate from the bench,’ neither may the executive legislate from the oval office,” Judge Jay Bybee wrote for the majority. Former President George W. Bush appointed Bybee to the bench, and the judge has a conservative reputation.

U.S. District Court Judge Jon Tigar entered an injunction against President Donald Trump’s new asylum rules on Nov. 19.

California Dems Pushing For Medicaid For Illegal Immigrants

Have they fallen into the sea yet? Sounds like they’re well on their way.

Via Washington Examiner:

A California lawmaker has pledged to re-introduce a bill that would allow adults who live in the state illegally to receive medical care paid for by the government.

State Assembly member Joaquin Arambula, a Democrat and a doctor, announced the plans Monday as the legislature convened at the state capitol, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Should the bill advance, California would become the first state to extend Medicaid coverage regardless of immigration status. State projections for last year’s bill found that 1.8 million people in California are uninsured and reside there illegally; roughly 1.2 million would qualify for Medi-Cal, the name of the state’s Medicaid program.

Nebraska Principal Reportedly Bans Candy Canes, Says ‘J Shape’ Stands For Jesus

 

Loony toons.

Via NY Post:

An elementary school principal in Nebraska was placed on leave after telling teachers to avoid decorating their classrooms with Christmas-themed ornaments so as not to offend those who don’t celebrate the holiday.

The principal at Manchester Elementary School, identified by Fox affiliate KPTM as Jennifer Sinclair, sent out a memo earlier this week with guidelines as to what is considered appropriate for classroom decorations and assignments.

Teachers reportedly were told that generic winter-themed items, such as sledding and scarves, and the “Frozen” character Olaf, were acceptable.

Decorations that included Santa, Christmas trees, reindeer, green and red items and even candy canes, however, were not acceptable for the elementary school.

The candy canes, according to KETV, were prohibited because Sinclair deemed them to have religious significance. “Historically, the shape is a ‘J’ for Jesus. The red is for the blood of Christ, and the white is a symbol of his resurrection,” she reportedly wrote. “This would also include different colored candy canes.”

Kevin Hart Forced Out as Oscars Host Over Shocking Discovery That He, as a Black Comedian, Has Deployed Jokes Involving the Word “Gay” In the Past

SOURCE —Ace of Spades

Quick, give me a glass of water so I can spit-take it all out.

The turn of events followed outcry over previous anti-gay tweets, and comments Hart made during stand-up routines nearly 10 years ago. Some of the tweets were feverishly deleted throughout the day on Thursday, leading to an Instagram video from the comedian that only made matters worse for him.”My team calls me, ‘Oh my God, Kevin, everyone’s upset by tweets you did years ago,'” he said in that video. “Guys, I’m nearly 40 years old. If you don’t believe that people change, grow, evolve as they get older, I don’t know what to tell you. If you want to hold people in a position where they always have to justify the past, do you. I’m the wrong guy, man.”

Those words rang as a defiant non-apology for many. Hours later, Hart resurfaced with another video stating that the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences had given him an ultimatum: Apologize or we’ll find a new host.

Forced apologies are what America is all about.

“I chose to pass on the apology,” the 39-year-old actor-comedian said in the video. “The reason why I passed is because I’ve addressed this several times. This is not the first time this has come up. I’ve addressed it. I’ve spoken on it. I’ve said where the rights and wrongs were. I’ve said who I am now versus who I was then. I’ve done it. I’m not going to continue to go back and tap into the days of old when I’ve moved on and I’m in a completely different place in my life.”

That, too, rang hollow for many. Less than two hours later, Hart announced via Twitter that he was removing himself from the gig, and he finally offered the apology everyone was looking for.

Wired is just beside itself and just can’t even!!!

The several-years-old missives, filled with homophobic slurs, began circulating almost as soon as Hart was announced as the host of next year’s Academy Awards ceremony. The 39-year-old actor and comedian deleted many of the messages, including a 2011 tweet in which he wrote that, were his son to play with his daughter’s dollhouse, Hart would “break it over his head & say n my voice ‘stop that’s gay’.” But the internet quickly dug up several more crude and cruel statements from his Twitter feed, some of which included terms like “FAT FAG” and jokes about AIDS.

Kevin Hart’s forced apology was made, of course, to try to stop the NPCs from ending his career completely. Which they’re going to try to do.

The 10 O’Clock News

 

Jack, a handsome man, walked into a sports bar around 9:58 pm. He sat down next to this blonde at the bar and stared up at the TV as the 10:00 news came on. The news crew was covering a story of a man on a ledge of a large building preparing to jump.

The blonde looked at Jack and said, “Do you think he’ll jump?”

Jack says, “You know what, I bet he will.” The blonde replied, “Well, I bet he won’t.” Jack placed $30 on the bar and said, “You’re on!”

Just as the blonde placed her money on the bar, the guy did a swan dive off of the building, falling to his death. The blonde was very upset and handed her $30 to Jack, saying, “Fair’s fair… Here’s your money.”

Jack replied, “I can’t take your money, I saw this earlier on the 5 o’clock news and knew he would jump.”

The blonde replies, “I did too; but I didn’t think he’d do it again.”

Jack took the money.

The ‘Magical’ Moment A Photographer Spotted A Rare White Reindeer In The Snow

 

The sight is unusual enough that the Norwegian tourism board once promoted drone video that had captured an “albino reindeer” running under the midnight sun.

Mads Nordsveen has traversed the world, capturing spectacular vistas of dramatic French cliffsides, palm-lined California beaches and the Northern Lights.

But over the weekend, it was a simpler sight in his native Norway that caught his eye.

The travel photographer was hiking with some friends on the northern Norwegian island of Senja when they spotted a little reindeer calf, white as the snow that blanketed the ground around them.

“He almost disappeared into the snow!” Nordsveen later wrote on Instagram

Were it not for its dark eyes and bone-colored antlers jutting into the air, the calf might have looked like another snow mound.

Tucker Carlson Says Trump Is ‘Not Capable’ And Hasn’t Kept His Promises

Fox News Channel host Tucker Carlson set straight any misinformation concerning his views on President Trump: “I don’t think he’s capable,” he said during an interview on Tuesday.

Urs Gehriger, an editor at “Die Weltwoche,” Switzerland’s leading German-language opinion weekly, noted that Carlson’s new book, “Ship of Fools,” is silent on Trump but comments on his critics. And so, Gehriger jump-started the conversation by asking what Carlson thought of Trump’s first two years in office.

Carlson said he cannot stand Trump’s self-aggrandizement and boasting. Then, when asked whether Trump has kept his promises, the usually quick-witted and long-winded Carlson had just one word: “No.”

 

Although it has a variety of voices, Fox News Channel has become the outlet often aligned with the current administration, at least in prime time.

Hosts such as Sean Hannity and Jeanine Pirro have taken near-unequivocal positions in support of Trump and against “the liberal left.” Hannity has even joined Trump on the campaign stage.

Though often a measured Trump supporter, Tuesday’s interview was not Carlson’s first verbal-lashing of the president; he called Trump’s attacks on then-attorney general Jeff Sessions, following his recusal from the Russia investigation, a “useless, self-destructive act.”

Making President Trump’s Bed: A Housekeeper Without Papers

At the president’s New Jersey golf course, an undocumented immigrant has worked as a maid since 2013. She said she never imagined she “would see such important people close up.”

 

BEDMINSTER, N.J. — During more than five years as a housekeeper at the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, N.J., Victorina Morales has made Donald J. Trump’s bed, cleaned his toilet and dusted his crystal golf trophies. When he visited as president, she was directed to wear a pin in the shape of the American flag adorned with a Secret Service logo.

Because of the “outstanding” support she has provided during Mr. Trump’s visits, Ms. Morales in July was given a certificate from the White House Communications Agency inscribed with her name.

Quite an achievement for an undocumented immigrant housekeeper.

Ms. Morales’s journey from cultivating corn in rural Guatemala to fluffing pillows at an exclusive golf resort took her from the southwest border, where she said she crossed illegally in 1999, to the horse country of New Jersey, where she was hired at the Trump property in 2013 with documents she said were phony.

She said she was not the only worker at the club who was in the country illegally.

Is Campbell’s Soup Going Down The Drain?

PICTURE POSTED BY MYSELF AND NOT THE SOURCE OF THIS ARTICLE……..Papa Mike

According to the New York Times, not only is Campbell’s Soup billions of dollars in debt, but it’s also reportedly refusing help from a hedge fund hoping to overtake majority share in the company to turn things around.

Last quarter alone, “earnings were down 50 percent … soup sales have been eroding and the company’s chief executive, Denise Morrison, stepped down under pressure in May,” The Times explains. Attempts at salvaging things with new acquisitions left the company “billions in debt.”

George Stephanopoulos And 20 Others Sold Out Their Professions And America To Hillary Clinton…..

The two pictures below were posted by myself and not by the SOURCE of this article……..Papa Mike

LOOKS LIKE THE CLINTONS HAD THE MOVIE TAKEN DOWN. IT HAS DISAPPEARED!!

SOURCE

George Stephanopoulos is currently the Chief Anchor and Chief Political Correspondent for ABC News. He is also a co-anchor of Good Morning America and This Week. He also regularly substitutes on ABC World News Tonight.

Before becoming a “journalist,” Stephanopoulos was a Democratic Party political adviser and the Communications Director for Bill Clinton’s 1992 presidential campaign.

He then went on to become the White House Communications Director as well as Senior Advisor for Policy and Strategy.

He is also a member on the Council of Foreign Relations.

Stephanopoulos has also been a Clinton Foundation donor and did not disclose any of his donations to ABC News or his viewers when he interviewed Peter Schweizer, the author of Clinton Cash.

Let’s be blunt: The Clinton’s used The Clinton Foundation as nothing more than their own personal slush fund. Peter Schweizer’s important book (and Schweizer is no right wing hatchet man) has been made into a documentary and it details the sliminess behind all of it.

Remember, the book uncovered George Stephanopoulos’s $75,000 in donations to The Clinton Foundation – donations he never disclosed to ABC despite pretending to be a fair “journalist.” In addition, the book uncovered the connection between The Clinton Foundation, donations and the State Department. When Bill Clinton was able to give a speech for $500,000 for certain business and government interests, those interests coincidentally had business that was pending with the State Department and the book showed how the State Department allowed this business to go through.

Think about this for a moment.

Hillary Clinton claimed when they left the White House, they were “broke” from all of their legal bills. Since then (2000), the Clintons have amassed a fortune of $230 million with much of it connected to The Clinton Foundation. Between 2001 and 2013, Bill Clinton earned AT LEAST $500,000 for 13 different speeches. ELEVEN of those when Hillary was Secretary of State.

We are talking about money, much of which has come in from foreign sources. Who knows what kind of trouble awaits.

You should watch all of it. It’s only a little over an hour long, but after watching, you’ll understand why there are so many DEMOCRATS who don’t want Hillary to be President.

The Creepy Line

 

Google wouldn’t let John Stossel inform the young.

Via Townhall:

This morning Google told me that it would not allow my YouTube video “Socialism Leads to Violence” to be viewed by young people. It violates “community guidelines,” said the company in a computer-generated email.

Anti-capitalist bias? Or just an algorithm shielding children from disturbing violence in Venezuela? I don’t know.

But a new documentary, “The Creepy Line,” argues that companies like Google and Facebook lean left and have power they shouldn’t have.

The title “Creepy Line” refers to a comment by former Google chairman Eric Schmidt, who said when it comes to issues like privacy, Google policy “is to get right up to the creepy line but not cross it.”

California Church’s Untouched Wooden Cross Becomes Symbol Of Hope In Wildfire Aftermath

Via Fox News:

California’s devastating wildfires may have destroyed roughly 95 percent of Paradise, but one symbol was left standing among the ashes that gives its residents hope.

Our Savior Lutheran Church Pastor Brandon Merrick posted the hopeful photo on Facebook two days after flames engulfed the town along with the 54-year-old church building and the parsonage where his wife and two kids lived.

Still standing was the simple wooden cross in the middle of the parking lot.

“I told our church I really hope that that picture can be used as the picture for the fire, because, as the church, everything that man builds with our hands is perishable, but what God does for us through the cross is imperishable and cannot be taken away or burned up,” Merrick told Fox News. “And that’s what I love about the picture.”

He said his family had to quickly evacuate along with the pre-school kids present the day the fire advanced toward the church grounds. Even though it was only nine in the morning, Thursday, Nov. 8, it was as dark as midnight when the pastor left.

“I hate this picture. However, I also love this picture,” Merrick wrote to his congregation online, adding it “is not just a heartbreaking reminder of what can happen to the things and people of this world, this is our one true hope in the midst of tragedy that cannot be destroyed by anything. God is with us.”

Liberal Judge Shelters an Illegal Alien MS-13 Gang Member from Deportation; Just Weeks Later, He “MURDERS” a 17 Year Old Boy

—Ace of Spades

The law says we have borders which must be enforced, but those who administer the law have their own Secret Law that says this is an Open Borders country.

Changing laws is ineffective when the ruling class decides we are a nation of men, notFrom the Boston Globe:

In his June 22 decision, Sturla also cited Gutierrez’s cognitive disabilities, his testimony that he was abused in El Salvador, which he left to flee gang violence, and his stated desire to improve his life as factors in the decision.”Lastly, the court finds that the respondent has made attempts to rehabilitate himself after multiple arrests for carrying knives and machetes,” Sturla wrote in his decision. “The respondent testified that he wants live a peaceful life.”

He told the judge he only carried large knives for chopping wood for cook-outs, and the judge bought this.

Guess what type of weapon he committed a murder with a month later?

Six members of the ruthless MS-13 gang were indicted for racketeering in connection with the murder of a teen in Lynn, with the feds saying bail should be denied because they pose a serious threat to the public.”The nature and circumstances of the (charges) are troubling and horrific,” a federal criminal affidavit reads.

That includes killing 17-year-old Herson Rivas on Aug. 2 with a large knife like they were “chopping wood.”

One of the accused, according to the affidavit, stabbed the defenseless teen “with such force his knife became warped during the attack.”

Video Montage: Media Use George H.W. Bush Passing To Bash Trump…

 

The media just can’t help themselves.

While the coverage of President George H.W. Bush’s passing has been notable in its respectful tone, many in the media are exploiting the solemn occasion to trash the current commander in chief.

“Donald Trump is 180 from who George H.W. Bush is,” CNN’s Jamie Gangel said in a comment that typified this coverage.

MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski used Bush’s passing to go on an anti-Trump rampage, calling him “deviant” and suggesting the country should fear for our own survival.

SEE VIDEO HERE

“What becomes undeniably obvious with every bio run about Bush 41 is that stark contrast between these two men. Bush served in the military, treated people with respect and dignity, and put country ahead of party and self time and time again over his half century in public service — half century,” Brezinski said. “Over the last two years, deviancy has continued being defined down by this current president, his cronies, his supporters, who love telling reporters that they don’t care how deviant his behavior becomes.”

“As is always the case, the presidency does not shape character, it reveals it in a raw fashion,” she carried on. “And that is why we celebrate George H.W. Bush’s legacy and fear the next two years of Mr. Trump’s wild White House ride. As we continue to watch that, Andrea, it’s conduct in office that we look at today with President Trump and we look at over the past few days, even, which leaves our jaws dropping.”

After contrasting Trump’s antipathy toward the mainstream media with Bush’s positive relationship with journalists, The Washington Post’s Eugene Robinson said: “it just gives you a sense of the big character of the man and the contrast with the small character we see today.”

CNN’s Jake Tapper, appearing on Seth Meyer’s late night show, said the current president is improving Americans’ perspective of George H.W. Bush: “There are a lot of things about George H. W. Bush that maybe people now appreciate that they didn’t appreciate at the time.”

Another former CNN correspondent, Frank Sesno, “George Bush believed in the institutions of government, which I think, too, is another reason why this moment to remember and to compare and contrast is so important, because our institutions are so under siege by the government itself.

CNN’s former anchor, Bernard Shaw, said: “The world looked at George Bush because he was a leader respected. He had proven himself. This president has yet to do that.”
