Good Riddance Gawker

The filth-laden tabloid filed for bankruptcy after it lost a $140.1  million law suit brought by Hulk Hogan over a secret sex tape.

Couldn’t happen to a better leftwingnut shitrag.

“Man-made climate change happens. Man-made climate change kills a lot of people. It’s going to kill a lot more. We have laws on the books to punish anyone whose lies contribute to people’s deaths. It’s time to punish the climate-change liars….Denialists should face jail. They should face fines….I’m talking about Rush and his multi-million-dollar ilk in the disinformation business. I’m talking about Americans for Prosperity and the businesses and billionaires who back its obfuscatory propaganda….Those malcontents must be punished and stopped.”
— Gawker.com staff writer Adam Weinstein in a March 28 post, “Arrest Climate-Change Deniers.”

 

From The Observer:

Gawker’s former editor A.J. Daulerio  (and the Gawker legal team) apparently don’t immediately draw the line for… possible cases of rape…. when the video of a purported rape had been posted on the site, Gawker’s editors responded to pleas from the victim by saying “Blah, blah blah” and Daulerio refused to delete the post (until the decision was later reversed).

……Gawker has posted stolen nude photographs of female celebrities (while simultaneously running a feminist site that supposedly cares about women), published utterly untrue gossip and lies (while regularly criticizing politicians and companies who are less than honest), sheltered millions in offshore tax havens (while criticizing people who do the same), used stolen property and ill-gotten information from criminals as the basis for their reporting, and of course, regularly exploited and profited off audiences of all types as one of the internet’s foremost purveyors of outrage porn. That doesn’t even get into the fact that earlier this year, the site’s editors staged a walkout when a post that outed a gay man with a wife and children was pulled by the site’s editorial council. (The source? The prostitute who was extorting him.) They weren’t protesting that the story ran—no, they were protesting in support of the story.

More, From The Observer:

There was the time they stole an iPhone prototype and nearly faced criminal prosecution for it. There was the time they ran private nude photos of quarterback Brett Favre to his objections and the objections of the recipient. There was the nude video of Dov Charney. There was the time they published an anonymous source’s recounting of a supposed one night stand by a female Senate candidate.

……And then, to think, this is the same site that sanctimoniously lectures other outlets and readers for sexism, for not respecting privacy, for misogyny, for publishing leaked celebrity nudes and on and on .

This is a media company that has criticized politicians and businesses for their lack of financial transparency while it is itself registered in the Cayman Islands. This is a company that has mocked other media outlets for unpaid internships even while abusing that same practice itself. This is a company that has repeatedly raged against the inequities of New York real estate, but its new headquarters (in a building with bank offices and credit card companies and a Lululemon store) has a special entrance for its writers so they don’t have to mix with regular folk. This is a company that criticizes ethics and conflicts of interest in other industries, all while pioneering a pay-for-pageview model that adds a financial motive to every story written by every single one of their writers. This is a site that claims that all that matters is the truth — whose editors once publicly admitted that if they only published true stories, traffic would plummet. It’s a site that fearlessly exposes the crimes of minor celebrities and non-public people, but when one of its own editors was accused of domestic violence, refused to write about it with an argument that essentially boiled down to ‘But he’s our friend!’ And this is a company whose writers mocked its competitors for quietly removing silly little articles but then, when facing a shitstorm of its own creation this week, voted to ‘delete’ an article whose damage they know damn well can never be undone.

All of this and I haven’t even bothered to get into the daily pandering, trolling, snarkiness, inhumanity, shoddy sourcing, outrage porn and relentless negativity their sites all pump out each day…

 

The backlash finally brought the rag to its knees.  Every editor, writer, and ‘reporter’ in that cesspool will now have to crawl back into the woodwork and find some other way to fling shit.

Colin Powell: ‘Hillary Trying to Pin Email Scandal on Me’

More scapegoats for her own crimes.

From Fox News.

Former Secretary of State Colin Powell said Saturday he only sent her a memo about his email practices to Hillary Clinton and didn’t encourage her to use private email practices during her time at the State Department.

The New York Times reported last week that Clinton told the FBI that Powell detailed to her his email practices under George W. Bush. The paper cited a passage from an upcoming book about Bill Clinton’s post-presidency that read, “Powell told her to use her own email, as he had done, except for classified communications, which he had sent and received via a State Department computer.”

Powell said in a statement that he had no recollection of this conversation with Clinton and elaborated on his statement to The New York Post, saying “The truth is she was using it (her personal email) for a year before I sent her a memo telling her what I did.”

He added that, “her people have been trying to pin it on me.”

Nice try, Hildabeast. No dice.

She unlawfully used a private email server to transmit classified emails and lied about it before Congress.

But then, laws are for little people.

Hillary’s Muzzie Campaign Aide Worked at Radical Islamic Journal for Over a Decade

From The New York Post.

Hillary Clinton’s top campaign aide, and the woman who might be the future White House chief of staff to the first female US president, for a decade edited a radical Muslim publication that opposed women’s rights and blamed the US for 9/11.

One of Clinton’s biggest accomplishments listed on her campaign Web site is her support for the UN women’s conference in Bejing in 1995, when she famously declared, “Women’s rights are human rights.” Her speech has emerged as a focal point of her campaign, featured prominently in last month’s Morgan Freeman-narrated convention video introducing her as the Democratic nominee.

However, soon after that “historic and transformational” 1995 event, as Clinton recently described it, her top aide Huma Abedin published articles in a Saudi journal taking Clinton’s feminist platform apart, piece by piece. At the time, Abedin was assistant editor of the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs working under her mother, who remains editor-in-chief. She was also working in the White House as an intern for then-First Lady Clinton.

Headlined “Women’s Rights are Islamic Rights,” a 1996 article argues that single moms, working moms and gay couples with children should not be recognized as families. It also states that more revealing dress ushered in by women’s liberation “directly translates into unwanted results of sexual promiscuity and irresponsibility and indirectly promote violence against women.” In other words, sexually liberated women are just asking to be raped.

“A conjugal family established through a marriage contract between a man and a woman, and extended through procreation is the only definition of family a Muslim can accept,” the author, a Saudi official with the Muslim World League, asserted, while warning of “the dangers of alternative lifestyles.” (Abedin’s journal was founded and funded by the former head of the Muslim World League.)

“Pushing [mothers] out into the open labor market is a clear demonstration of a lack of respect of womanhood and motherhood,” it added.

In a separate January 1996 article, Abedin’s mother — who was the Muslim World League’s delegate to the UN conference — wrote that Clinton and other speakers were advancing a “very aggressive and radically feminist” agenda that was un-Islamic and wrong because it focused on empowering women.

“‘Empowerment’ of women does more harm than benefit the cause of women or their relations with men,” Saleha Mahmood Abedin maintained, while forcefully arguing in favor of Islamic laws that have been roundly criticized for oppressing women.

“By placing women in the ‘care and protection’ of men and by making women responsible for those under her charge,” she argued, “Islamic values generate a sense of compassion in human and family relations.”

“Among all systems of belief, Islam goes the farthest in restoring equality across gender,” she claimed. “Acknowledging the very central role women play in procreation, child-raising and homemaking, Islam places the economic responsibility of supporting the family primarily on the male members.”

She seemed to rationalize domestic abuse as a result of “the stress and frustrations that men encounter in their daily lives.” While denouncing such violence, she didn’t think it did much good to punish men for it.

‘Among all systems of belief, Islam goes the farthest in restoring equality across gender.’

 – 1996 article authored by Saleha Mahmood Abedin, Huma’s mother

……Huma continued to work for her mother’s journal through 2008. She is listed as “assistant editor” on the masthead of the 2002 issue in which her mother suggested the US was doomed to be attacked on 9/11 because of “sanctions” it leveled against Iraq and other “injustices” allegedly heaped on the Muslim world. Here is an excerpt:

“The spiral of violence having continued unabated worldwide, and widely seen to be allowed to continue, was building up intense anger and hostility within the pressure cooker that was kept on a vigorous flame while the lid was weighted down with various kinds of injustices and sanctions . . . It was a time bomb that had to explode and explode it did on September 11, changing in its wake the life and times of the very community and the people it aimed to serve.”

Huma Abedin is Clinton’s longest-serving and, by all accounts, most loyal aide. The devout, Saudi-raised Muslim started working for her in the White House, then followed her to the Senate and later the State Department. She’s now helping run Clinton’s presidential campaign as vice chair and may end up back in the White House.

The contradictions are hard to reconcile. The campaign is not talking, despite repeated requests for interviews.

More on Abedin:  In June of 2011, American Thinker reported  that  Andrew Weiner’s wife, Huma Abedin-Weiner, the deputy chief of staff to Hillary Clinton,  and his mother in law,  Saleha Mahmood Abedin, has ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.

Hillary’s muzzie gal pal isn’t exactly a champion of women’s rights. She tows the Sharia line (at least in theory) while she gallivants around without a burqa and enjoys all the freedoms guaranteed by a democratic republic. Her family is a cabal of Islamofascist shitbags.

More from Discover the Networks:

When Huma was two, the Abedin family relocated from Michigan to Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. This move took place when Abdullah Omar Naseef, a major Muslim Brotherhood figure who served as vice president of Abdulaziz University (AU), recruited his former AU colleague, Syed Abedin, to work for the Institute of Muslim Minority Affairs (IMMA), a Saudi-based Islamic think tank that Naseef was preparing to launch. A number of years later, Naseef would develop close ties to Osama bin Laden and the terrorist group al Qaeda. Naseef also spent time (beginning in the early 1980s) as secretary-general of the Muslim World League, which, as journalist Andrew C. McCarthy points out, “has long been the Muslim Brotherhood’s principal vehicle for the international propagation of Islamic supremacist ideology.” IMMA’s close ties to the Muslim World League are further evidenced by the fact that IMMA’s in-house publication, the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs (JMMA), has long listed its official address as 46 Goodge Street in London — precisely the same address as that of the Muslim World League’s London office.

It is vital to note that IMMA’s “Muslim Minority Affairs” agenda was, and remains to this day, a calculated foreign policy of the Saudi Ministry of Religious Affairs, designed, as Andrew C. McCarthy explains, “to grow an unassimilated, aggressive population of Islamic supremacists who will gradually but dramatically alter the character of the West.” For details about this agenda, click here.

……Apart from their working relationship, Abedin and Mrs. Clinton have also developed a close personal bond over their years together, as reflected in Clinton’s 2010 assertion that: “I have one daughter. But if I had a second daughter, it would [be] Huma.” In 2011, Secretary Clinton paid a friendly visit to Abedin’s mother, Saleha, in Saudi Arabia. On that occasion, Mrs. Clinton publicly described her aide’s position as “very important and sensitive.”

……Huma Abedin’s brother, Hassan Abedin, has ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and is currently an associate editor with the JMMA. Hassan was once a fellow at the Oxford Center for Islamic Studies, at a time when the Center’s board included such Brotherhood-affiliated figures as Yusuf al-Qaradawi and Abdullah Omar Naseef.

It’s typical for DemProgs to surround themselves with radical fringe communists, socialists, and muzzies, since all of them have a lot in common.  They’re ideological comrades.  They hate America and Israel. And they hate freedom of speech, especially when it trounces their batshit crazy viewpoints. The Dems showed their real affinity for Islam by featuring radical muslims at their DNC conventions.

Like B. Hussein, Hillary has no problem hopping into the ideological sack with them.

U.K. Muzzie Imam, Anjem Choudary, Convicted for Terrorist Recruiting

From The Link.

One of the UK’s most notorious radical clerics has been convicted of inviting others to support the so-called Islamic State, it can now be reported.

Police said Anjem Choudary, 49, had stayed “just within the law” for years, but was arrested in 2014 after pledging allegiance to the militant group.

Many people tried for serious terror offences were influenced by his lectures and speeches, police said.

Choudary was convicted alongside confidant Mohammed Mizanur Rahman.

Counter-terrorism chiefs have spent almost 20 years trying to bring Choudary, a father of five, to trial, blaming him, and the proscribed organizations which he helped to run, for radicalizing young men and women.

Both men were charged with one offence of inviting support for IS – which is contrary to section 12 of the Terrorism Act 2000 – between 29 June 2014 and 6 March 2015.

The verdict on the two defendants was delivered on 28 July, but can only be reported now following the conclusion of a separate trial at the Old Bailey of another group of men for a similar offence.

The trial heard how the men decided in the summer of 2014 that the group then known as ISIS [Islamic State in Iraq and al-Sham/the Levant] had formed a “Khilafah”, or Islamic state, that demanded the obedience and support of Muslims.

They then invited others to support IS through speeches and announced their own oath of allegiance to its leader.

The oath of allegiance was a “turning point” which meant they could be put on trial, the Met Police said.

Choudary was once the spokesman for al-Muhajiroun, an organization that can be linked to dozens of terrorism suspects.

Its leader Omar Bakri Muhammad fled the UK after the London suicide bombings on 7 July 2005, and over the years since, Choudary has become one of the most influential radical Islamists in Europe and a string of his followers have either left the UK to fight in Syria or tried to do so.

The court heard that in one speech in March 2013 Choudary made it clear that he wanted the Muslim faith to “dominate the whole world”.

“Next time when your child is at school and the teacher says ‘What do you want when you grow up? What is your ambition?’, they should say ‘To dominate the whole world by Islam, including Britain – that is my ambition’,” he said.

When IS announced a “Khilafah” – an Islamic state – in June 2014, the court heard that Choudary held a meeting with his closest aides at a curry house in east London.

Before accepting the “Khilafah” was legitimate, the jury heard he consulted his “spiritual guide” Omar Bakri Mohammed, who is currently in jail in Lebanon.

On 7 July 2014, the men’s names appeared alongside Rahman’s on the oath, which stated the al-Muhajiroun had “affirmed” the legitimacy of the “proclaimed Islamic Caliphate State”.

During his trial Choudary also refused to denounce the execution of journalist James Foley by Mohammed Emwazi, nicknamed Jihadi John, in Syria in 2014.

“If you took an objective view there are circumstances where someone could be punished,” he told the jury.

Supporters of Choudary included:

  • Michael Adebolajo and Michael Adebowale, the murderers of soldier Lee Rigby
  • Suspected IS executioner Siddhartha Dhar
  • Omar Sharif, a British suicide bomber who attacked Tel Aviv in 2003
  • Brusthom Ziamani, jailed 12 years later for planning to kill in the streets of London

The trial also heard that Rahman – previously convicted of soliciting to murder – went on Facebook to tell his followers that migration to IS territory was a “duty”.

“Let’s be clear, the Muslims in the Khilafah need help,” he wrote, after communicating with a British fighter who urged him to find recruits.

“The one who is capable to go over and help the Muslims, must go and help.”

Commander Dean Haydon, head of the Met Police’s counter-terrorism unit, said the case which led to the conviction of Choudary and Rahman was a “significant prosecution in our fight against terrorism”.

He said: “These men have stayed just within the law for many years, but there is no-one within the counter-terrorism world that has any doubts of the influence that they have had, the hate they have spread and the people that they have encouraged to join terrorist organizations.

“Over and over again we have seen people on trial for the most serious offences who have attended lectures or speeches given by these men.

“The oath of allegiance was a turning point for the police – at last we had the evidence that they had stepped over the line and we could prove they supported ISIS.”

He said the trial had considered over 20 years’ worth of material over more than 333 electronic devices containing 12.1 terabytes of storage data.

Sue Hemming, head of counter-terrorism at the Crown Prosecution Service, said the men “knowingly sought to legitimize a terrorist organization and encouraged others to support it”.

“They used the power of social media to attempt to influence those who are susceptible to these types of messages, which might include the young or vulnerable,” she added.

Choudary currently has more than 32,000 followers on Twitter and his account can still be viewed online, despite requests for its removal in August last year and the following March.

He and Rahman will be sentenced at the Old Bailey on 6 September.

 

Background on Choudary:

Anjem Choudary  is Britain’s most rabid Islamic shitbag.  He and his contingent of jihadists  murder British soldiers in the streets and bomb civilian transportation. For allah, of course.

His followers are spewing all over youtube.

They should just take his goat-smelling ass out and shoot him. Barring that, lock his ass up and throw away the key.

Biden Says Trump Unfit for Presidency, Then Points to Military Aide Carrying Nuclear Launch Codes

Flashback: Bubba lost the biscuit.

Bill Clinton’s administration lost track of “the Biscuit,” special codes that allow the president to launch a nuclear attack, according to retired Gen. Hugh Shelton.

The codes, printed on a credit-card-sized certificate, are a key part of America’s nuclear protocol. They allow the president to open a special briefcase that contains instructions for a surprise nuclear launch, and the commander in chief is supposed to keep the card with him at all times.

Under Bill Clinton, the card disappeared.

“The codes were actually missing for months,” Shelton, former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, wrote in his book “Without Hesitation: The Odyssey of an American Warrior.”

“This is a big deal — a gargantuan deal — and we dodged a silver bullet,” Shelton wrote, according to Agence France-Presse.

Biden brainless

Just think, as stupid, incompetent and corrupt as Obama is, this idiot is a heartbeat away from the Oval Office.

From Breitbart.

Vice President Joe Biden revealed during a campaign rally that he had a military aide with the nuclear codes present at the event.

“There’s a guy that follows me right back here, has the nuclear codes,” Biden said, turning and pointing. “So God forbid anything happened to the president and I had to make a decision, the codes are with me.”

After Biden bragged about how the nuclear codes were with him, he said that Trump was “not qualified” to know the nuclear launch codes.

He said Trump was not worthy of being the commander in chief, reminding the audience that his son Beau served in Iraq.

“I must tell you, had Donald Trump been president, I would have thrown my body in front of him,” Biden said. “No I really mean it.”

Biden insisted that Trump’s presidential campaign was already endangering American Soldiers stationed overseas.

“If my son were still in Iraq and I say to all those who were there — the threat to their life has gone up a couple clicks,” he said.

Crazy Joe isn’t exactly the sharpest tool in the shed. And Biden’s son was a JAG officer. Not exactly a dangerous job in the military. Just sayin’.

The lives of military personnel have been endangered beyond belief with Barky as “Commander-in-Chief”.

That mutherfucker has eviscerated the military and made it into a laughing stock.  He  flushed everything we accomplished in Iraq and Afghanistan.  His foreign policy is a fucking embarrassment.

Forget combat readiness; ‘gay rights’, drag shows, deference to Islamofascist theocracy,  demonizing the nation’s founders, and whatever hairstyle you want is the new focus. No wonder the enemy is laughing.

Obama’s purge of dedicated, experienced military leaders, has been quite extensive.  The warrior ethos has become the latest casualty in Barky’s evisceration of the military.

I’ll take Trump over a SCOAMF and his retarded VP any fucking day of the week.
