ISIS Supporters Reach Out To The Ferguson Mob

The  looters and rioters in Ferguson, Missouri have found a new ally in the murderous death cult ISIS.

ISIS militants and their supporters are using social media to egg the protesters on, encouraging them to embrace radical Islam and fight against the U.S. government.

On Monday night, during a CNN report, someone behind Jake Tapper held up an “ISIS is here” sign – shocking more than a few viewers.

How badly did the MSM drop the ball on this? We get a screenshot from someone watching the CNN broadcast at home, but nobody on the scene sticks a microphone in his face? Did no one in the media  happen to notice the guy with the huge ISIS sign? (Those would be the genocidal maniacs who have been torturing,  beheading, crucifying, raping and pillaging  innocents in Syria and Iraq, for the past year or so.)  Did anyone in the media bother to interview the ISIS loon? If not – why not? Why is it that out of dozens of reporters on the ground in Ferguson – we only have a still shot from the CNN broadcast – and no story?  I’d like to know why some creep was out there holding an ISIS sign. And I would have liked to have seen him publicly shamed for it.

The Daily Mail reports that ISIS has been reaching out to the Ferguson mob primarily on Twitter.

The militants’ tweets denounce local officers for the way they have attempted to quell the violence, make reference to historic acts of police brutality, and even use the hashtag #FergusonUnderISIS in an attempt to get angry young men in the city to declare allegiance to the Islamist group.

One ISIS sympathiser calling himself Mujahid Miski, who claims to be from Minneapolis–Saint Paul but suggests he is now based in ‘the horn of Africa’, has led the campaign to encourage those taking part in the protests to embrace radical Islam.

In one message he tweets: ‘So how is democracy treating you guys? #FergusonUnderIS #Ferguson.’

He adds: ‘I thought u guys back in #Ferguson were supposed to be Free & that u had equal rights. I’d really like to know what changed? #FergusonUnderIS’.

Miski goes on to retweet dozens of messages by a Twitter user with the handle @AmreekiWitness, who claims to monitor and support the growth of radical Islam in the U.S..

Amreeki Witness’ messages focus on the treatment of black people in the U.S., praise Malcolm X for embracing Islam and urge angry young black men to take up the religion as it means the police ‘will fear you’.

In one message Amreeki Witness mocks the curfew police have imposed in Ferguson to bring an end to the disorder, saying: ‘We IS guys hate you for your freedom, eh? Just like that freedom uplifting curfew in #Ferguson? Wake up, or they’ll never let you outside.’

As the social media campaign began to take hold, with dozens of radical Islamists commenting on the Ferguson protests, Amreeki Witness tweeted: ‘May be time to organize the Muslims in America upon haqq and mobilize to #Ferguson. Defend the oppressed, start jihad here.’

The message attracted a large response, with one Islamist calling himself Amarka Al-Ahlam responding: ‘Preach, brother. We must organize brigades in preparation for the oncoming storm. #FergusonUnderIS #JihadinFerguson.’

MRC Video: #LeanOver Chris Matthews

Some wise guys at the Media Research Center are working on a series of videos covering the “journalists” at MSNBC.

Via the Washington Examiner:

The conservative Media Research Center is launching a video series this morning that mocks the hosts with 1-2 minute videos composed of embarrassing clips that MRC told Secrets would “underscore how clueless and biased they are.”

Their first victim subject is Chris Matthews, also known in the conservative blogosphere as “Tingles” because of the thrill that runs up his leg when his idol, Barack Obama speaks.

See if you can pick up on Tingles’ favorite, Alinsky-approved tactic for demonizing Republicans – it may be hard to detect because he’s is so subtle and nuanced in his language, as you know.

The campaign is a parody of MSNBC’s “Lean Forward” campaign. MRC is renaming it “Lean Over,” and will have a Twitter hashtag to match: #LeanOver.

IRS Scandal Heats Up As Newly Released Emails Prove Targeting Was Directed Out of DC (Video)

Judicial Watch, the same group that recently forced the White House to release those damning email exchanges related to the Benghazi attack, just published some  newly uncovered communications regarding the IRS targeting of conservative groups. The emails, which were obtained  in response to an October 2013 Judicial Watch FOIA lawsuit filed after the agency refused to respond to four FOIA requests dating back to May 2013. Reading the emails, you can see why they stonewalled. They prove without a doubt that the handling of Tea Party applications was directed out of the agency’s headquarters in Washington, DC.  and that “extensive pressure” was put on the IRS by Senator Carl Levin (D-MI) to shut down conservative-leaning tax-exempt organizations. 

One key email string from July 2012 confirms that IRS Tea Party scrutiny was directed from Washington, DC. On July 6, 2010, Holly Paz (the former Director of the IRS Rulings and Agreements Division and current Manager of Exempt Organizations Guidance) asks IRS lawyer Steven Grodnitzky “to let Cindy and Sharon know how we have been handling Tea Party applications in the last few months.”  Cindy Thomas is the former director of the IRS Exempt Organizations office in Cincinnati and Sharon Camarillo was a Senior Manager in their Los Angeles office. Grodnitzky, a top lawyer in the Exempt Organization Technical unit (EOT) in Washington, DC, responds:

EOT is working the Tea party applications in coordination with Cincy. We are developing a few applications here in DC and providing copies of our development letters with the agent to use as examples in the development of their cases. Chip Hull [another lawyer in IRS headquarters] is working these cases in EOT and working with the agent in Cincy, so any communication should include him as well. Because the Tea party applications are the subject of an SCR [Sensitive Case Report], we cannot resolve any of the cases without coordinating with Rob.

The reference to Rob is believed to be Rob Choi, then-Director of Rulings and Agreements in IRS’s Washington, DC, headquarters.

The Daily Caller reported:

Levin, chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs’ permanent subcommittee on investigations, wrote a March 30, 2012 letter to then-IRS commissioner Douglas Shulman discussing the “urgency” of the issue of possible political activity by nonprofit applicants. Levin asked if the IRS was sending out additional information requests to applicant groups and citing an IRS rejection letter to a conservative group as an example of how the IRS should be conducting its business.

Bill Hemmer reported on the scandal Thursday morning on Fox News:



Senator Ted Cruz’s press release in full:

New Emails Escalate Need for Special Prosecutor

Sen Cruz: A special prosecutor with real independence should be appointed immediately

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, today made the following statement regarding new emails between IRS employees and other government officials released by a watchdog group.

“After emails showed that Lois Lerner was communicating directly with the Department of Justice, I sent Attorney General Holder a letter asking him to reconsider his decision to not appoint a special prosecutor in the IRS targeting scandal. And now today more emails have surfaced, this time showing that IRS targeting of Tea Party groups was coordinated from Washington D.C.—contrary to the Administration’s initial story that this was all done by lower ranking IRS officials in Cincinnati.

“So we now know the Department of Justice was involved with the IRS targeting, and the Administration’s initial explanation about the targeting was false. This Administration has lost all credibility to investigate this partisan scandal, especially given that they have entrusted the investigation to be led by a major Democratic donor. A special prosecutor with real independence should be appointed immediately.”

John Hayward, The Conversation: A new chapter in the IRS scandal begins:

Once again, I’m struck by how well Obama’s delaying tactics work to protect him from scandals that could have brought down his Administration.  He and his team of paid liars long ago hit on the tactic of living from one news cycle to the next – a deliberate reversal of the old Washington wisdom that it’s better to dump everything at once (preferably in a literal dumpster out back of the White House, on a Friday afternoon, ideally before a holiday weekend) to avoid the corrosive drip-drip-drip of scandal.  Old Washington hands thought it was dangerous to drag these things out and keep them in the news; better to muscle through a round of tough Sunday shows and get it over with, instead of seeing stories about “new revelations in Whatever-gate” on the front pages, week after week.

Newsbusters: Networks Censor Bombshell Documents Showing Top Democrat Pressed IRS to Target Conservatives

Coverage by the Big Three (ABC, NBC, CBS) networks on their Wednesday evening and Thursday morning shows? 0 seconds.

While the networks refused to cover the new revelations in the IRS scandal they did devote a total of 11 minutes (ABC: 4 minutes,19 seconds; CBS: 4 minutes, 19 seconds; NBC: 4 minutes, 8 seconds) to defending Hillary Clinton from Republican attacks on their Wednesday evening and Thursday morning shows.

 

Benjamin Netanyahu Schools Candy Crowley: ‘Sorry, Candy, Whoa!’ (Video)

In an appearance on CNN’s State of the Union, Sunday,  Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu forcefully corrected host Candy Crowley’s misinformation. “Sorry, Candy – Whoa!” He exclaimed.

With the patience of a saint, Netanyahu went on to inform the errant host of the facts.

Enjoy the smackdown via Newsbusters:

 

CANDY CROWLEY: One of the criticisms, Mr. Prime Minister, has been that, prior to this, when you were dealing with Abbas, you had said, look, I don’t know who I’m supposed to negotiate with. There’s Hamas and then there’s Abbas and Fatah.

So, now there’s a unity government, and you still don’t want to talk to them. So, there’s criticism here that this was an excuse for you to walk away.

BENJAMIN NETANYAHU: Sorry, Candy. Whoa.

CROWLEY: Go ahead.

NETANYAHU: No, Candy. No, no. I’m sorry.

I heard that. I hear people write that up, but, in fact, it’s the very opposite. I said right from the start, I said, look, I could wait until President Abbas recognizes — represents the entire Palestinian people. But, in this case, we will wait until eternity, and we won’t have peace.

So, I chose deliberately, openly, specifically, and explicitly to negotiate with that part of the Palestinian people that said it was willing to make peace with Israel. I said, we’re not going to try to include the other part that seeks our extermination. And that’s what I did.

I have been very consistent on this. Now that he’s joined them, I say this. Look, unity for peace is good. Unity with Hamas that seeks to exterminate Israel, the opposite of peace, is bad. I have always been consistent on this.

I negotiate with those who are willing to make peace with my country. I will not negotiate with those who seek to exterminate peace with my country, whether they sit in the front office or the back office. That’s not where I’m going to go.



Her first mistake was believing the propaganda coming out of the Obama Regime.

Her second mistake was using their baseless talking points against a moral and intellectual superior.

Her third mistake was – being left-wing hack Candy Crowley who shouldn’t even have a job after her media malpractice during the 2nd presidential debate in 2012. 

It’s outrageous that CNN still employs the woman after that. But then – unfairly railroading a Republican candidate is a feather in the cap of a member of the Democrat media complex.

Media Obsesses Over Chelsea Clinton’s Baby News – Ignores IRS/DOJ Email Bombshell

After word broke last Thursday night that Chelsea Clinton is an expectant mother, media outlets reacted with predictable over-enthusiasm for America’s new “royal” child.

Via Big Government, the video below features how media figures from ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox News, MSNBC, and CNN reacted to the news:

Does anyone remember this much coverage when GW Bush’s daughter, Jenna became an expectant mother?

Now, I am as happy for the expectant couple as anyone, but the story really only warrants a brief mention in the news, and obviously well wishes – not extensive coverage at the expense of more important stories.

Newsbusters reported that ABC has fixated over the news, devoting 12 minutes and 47 seconds of coverage of the story but ignored news of the latest delay of the Keystone XL pipeline by the Obama administration which has been heavily criticized by Republicans and vulnerable Red State Democrats.

On Friday morning, ABC reporter Bianna Golodryga hyped, “Move over, Prince George, though. This morning, Americans have their own royal, or, rather, presidential baby, to look forward to.” On Sunday, This Week avoided Keystone, yet the ABC program opened with an announcer hyping, “Chelsea Clinton’s surprise announcement. Has a Clinton dynasty begun?” Host Martha Raddatz brought the baby up to her panel and fawned, “Very important question, what do you think Hillary Clinton should be called as a grandma?”

***

ABC’s Nightline, which hasn’t mentioned a serious topic like ObamaCare in 159 days, devoted two minutes and 24 seconds to the Clinton baby on Thursday night.

NBC has mostly ignored Keystone. However, its subsidiary, CNBC, at least mentioned that Democratic billionaire Tom Steyer pledged $100 million to Democratic candidates on the condition that the pipeline not be approved.

Meanwhile, the major news networks (other than Fox and to a tiny extent CNN) also ignored the latest development in the IRS scandal:  the revelation that the former IRS chief contacted the Justice Department about criminal investigations of tax-exempt groups.

Katie Pavlich of Townhall, emails obtained by  Judicial Watch through a FOIA request, show  that former IRS official Lois Lerner “was in contact with the Department of Justice in May 2013 about whether tax exempt groups could be criminally prosecuted for “lying” about political activity.”

Newsbusters reported on the lack of interest in this bombshell story:

CNN only gave two news briefs — 43 seconds in total — to the story, however, ignoring it during all the other news hours.

None of the broadcast networks reported the news on Wednesday night or Thursday morning. Earlier this week, the networks ignored another big development in the scandal, the RNC suing the IRS for “illegal stonewalling” of their requests for documents related to the scandal.

The latest omissions are only the latest in a string of developments in the scandal missed by the networks.

Also, President Obama was not asked about the story at his Thursday afternoon press conference.

Over at the Campaign Spot, Jim Geraghty has a message for the MSM: Enough Puff Pieces About Chelsea Clinton Already.

He notes that Clinton is a minor celebrity “whose adult life consists mostly of stepping through doors opened by her parents’ power and meandering through the highest levels of high society without actually doing much.”

Dear friends on the Left: You can’t bemoan the death of opportunity in America, and rail against the richest one percent, and then devour puff pieces on how exceptionally talented and wonderful the offspring of our super-wealthy political leaders are, earning plaudits just by showing up with their famous last names. Paul Krugman declared that Horatio Alger was dead back in 2003. The self-made success story may not be dead, but she’s impeded by every powerful institution that sets up sweet, high-paying, low-responsibility gigs for the special children of the gilded class.

What’s really astounding is how our friends on the Left can turn their elite-status-and-wealth-resentment on and off as if it was attached to a light switch. You may recall Jim Hightower at the 1988 Democratic National Convention, sneering that George H.W. Bush was “born on third base [who] thought he had hit a triple.” (The quote is frequently attributed to Ann Richards.) Yeah, that 55-combat-mission naval aviator who got shot down over the Pacific and who lost his four-year-old daughter to leukemia sure lived a life of ease and comfort.

Because of this insidious double standard, the nation is stuck with a president and attorney general whose serial scandals and corruptions would have led to them being impeached already if they had an R after their names. Her role in the Benghazi scandal should preclude Hillary Clinton from even thinking about running for president. But then – she knows the MSM has her back.

As we are forced to deal with such blatant bias on a daily basis,  couldn’t they at least spare us these nauseating puff pieces on our Democrat “royalty?”

 

 

 

 

Sharyl Attkisson Suggests Far Left Media Matters Was Paid To Take Her Down (Video)

Former CBS  reporter Sharyl Attkisson was a rare bird in the world of MSM investigative journalism, her objective being, to hold government accountable – no matter who was in charge. In other words, she subjected Democrats to the same level of scrutiny as Republicans. This made her persona non grata when the Obama administration came into power.

In this interview with CNN’s Reliable Sources with Brian Stelter, Sunday, Attkisson revealed that the far-left, Soros funded “Media Matters for America” targeted her after she reported on stories unflattering to the Obama administration like the Fast and Furious gun-running scandal, Solyndra, and Benghazi on CBS.

As Washington Free Beacon notes, Media Matters made a special point of attacking Attkisson, “who ruffled many left-wing feathers when she resigned and said that her work for CBS had been stifled by liberals within the network. That is not an old charge, as former CBS correspondent Bernard Goldberg wrote in the best-selling book Bias, explaining how the truth was often distorted at the network because of political bias.”

Attkisson nonchalantly explained that Media Matters used to “work with” her on stories, which evoked a reaction from Stelter. “That’s interesting,” he said.

“Well, don’t they call you? They call journalists and they try to provide material and information,” she replied.

“Right, they are always emailing things, making us try to act outraged about something,” Stelter said. (And the MSM are usually happy to oblige.)

“And I was certainly friendly with them as anybody,” Attkisson said. “Good information can come from any source. But when I persisted with Fast & Furious and some of the green energy stories that I was doing, I clearly at some point became a target. I don’t know if someone paid them to do it or they just took it on their own.”

Again, Stelter acted surprised.”Do you think that’s possible that someone paid them?” He asked.

Attkisson replied,  “well they get contributions from — yes, they get contributions.”

Stelter: But specifically to target you?

Attkisson: Perhaps, sure. I think that’s what some of these groups do, absolutely.

 

The FCC Shelves Controversial Newsroom Study – For Now

In the wake of a massive conservative media outcry, the FCC is retreating from its plan to put researchers in American newsrooms  to grill reporters, editors and station owners about how they decide which stories to run.

Fox News reported:

FCC spokeswoman Shannon Gilson said Chairman Tom Wheeler agreed with critics that some of the study’s proposed questions for reporters and news directors “overstepped the bounds of what is required.”

The agency announced that a proposed pilot study in South Carolina will now be shelved, at least until a “new study design” is finalized. But the agency made clear that this and any future studies will not involve interviews with “media owners, news directors or reporters.”

Chalk one up for the First Amendment, but stay vigilant. Totalitarians never quit.  The “new study design” may not be any better than the old one – considering who is in charge of conducting the study.

In 2009, when she was still just a nominee for the Federal Communications Commission, Mignon Clyburn, the daughter of Rep. Jim Clyburn, told the Senate Commerce Committee, “The FCC is not in the content business.”

But just over a year since she was confirmed, the FCC is marching forward with a questionnaire for newsrooms that critics have ripped as invasive – and possibly a shot across the bow in a push to reinstate the Reagan-era fairness doctrine.

***

Clyburn, whose father is a vocal proponent of the fairness doctrine, will be running the CIN study. Interestingly, a field test of the CIN will be happening in Jim Clyburn’s own home state of South Carolina within the city limits of Columbia.

Jake Tapper interviewed the author of the WSJ piece that spurred the controversy, FCC Commissioner Ajit Pai, who was one of the staunchest critics of the proposal, on CNN earlier today during his “Buried Lede” segment, where he covers stories that he thinks aren’t getting enough attention. The news broke of the FCC’s retreat at the end of the segment.
