UNREAL: White House Says We Are Not At “War With ISIS”…

(ZIP) -- Which I’m guessing will come as quite surprise to ISIS.

Via Business Insider:

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest on MSNBC’s “All In” program.

The White House is insisting the U.S. is not at war with the Islamic State, also known as ISIS or ISIL, despite an aggressive air campaign and previously labeling the jihadist group an “imminent threat to every interest we have.”

“Before getting into the strategy though, there seems [to be] a fundamental, existential question: Is the United States presently at war with ISIS, yes or no?” MSNBC host Chris Hayes asked President Barack Obama’s top spokesman, White House press secretary Josh Earnest, on Thursday night.

Earnest went with “no.”

“No, Chris. What we are doing is we are working very aggressively with international partners, with Iraqi and Kurdish security forces, to take the steps necessary to mitigate the threat that’s posed by ISIL,” he responded

Cop Points Gun, Threatens to Kill Citizen in Response to Cell Phone Recording -- "I'll f***ing put a round in your ass so quick"

(by Paul Joseph Watson, Infowars) -- A Florida police officer pointed a gun at a man and threatened to kill him after another was slammed to the ground and handcuffed for recording an officer on his cell phone during a confrontation in Boynton Beach.

The footage begins with an officer having a conversation with a group of men in a parked car after a routine traffic stop. When the cop demands to see everybody’s ID, one of the men informs the officer that he is recording the encounter.

“Turn that phone off right now,” states the officer, to which the man responds, “No I’m not intimidated, I have rights, sir, I’m recording your ass,” before unleashing a string of profanities.

The officer then walks around to the other side of the car and gives his badge number but refuses to provide his name, which according to one of the men in the car is “Danish.”

“What’s your name sir?” asks one of the men, before the cop swats the cell phone out of his hand and drags him out of the car, throwing him to the ground.

Another officer then arrives with his gun drawn before stating, “I’ll fucking, I’ll put a round in your ass so quick.” The cop then opens the passenger door with his gun drawn and the video ends.

The incident happened last year but only began receiving attention earlier this week when Boynton Beach Police Chief Jeffrey Katz took to YouTube to defend the actions of his officers.

According to Katz, the men in the car were “escalating” the situation by “recording the interaction.” The officer’s actions were justified because one of the men “reached out of his window with a black object in his hand” (a cell phone). Katz also cited a “violent home invasion robbery” that had occurred within a 2 mile radius as justification for the hostile response to the men in the car.

Although the men in the car were foul-mouthed, they could hardly be described to have been acting in an aggressive manner.

Katz asserted that the men were deemed a threat because they weren’t displaying an appropriate level of “fear” towards the officers, stating, “When I watch this video, I don’t see a car full of young men who are behaving in a manner consistent with fear of the police.”

The men had apparently done nothing to arouse suspicion in the first place apart from ‘driving while black’.

As Carlos Miller explains, “That’s what it really boils down to in this video. Contempt of cop….The young, black men in this video not only questioned their authority, one of men turned up the attitude after a cop ordered him to stop recording.”

Miller notes that the Boynton Beach Police Department have arrested several people before for nothing more than filming officers with cell phones.

Found: The Islamic State's Terror Laptop of Doom -- Details Plot to Weaponize Bubonic Plague...

(Foreign Policy) --  Abu Ali, a commander of a moderate Syrian rebel group in northern Syria, proudly shows a black laptop partly covered in dust. "We took it this year from an ISIS hideout," he says.

Abu Ali says the fighters from the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS), which have since rebranded themselves as the Islamic State, all fled before he and his men attacked the building. The attack occurred in January in a village in the Syrian province of Idlib, close to the border with Turkey, as part of a larger anti-ISIS offensive occurring at the time. "We found the laptop and the power cord in a room," he continued, "I took it with me. But I have no clue if it still works or if it contains anything interesting."

As we switched on the Dell laptop, it indeed still worked. Nor was it password-protected. But then came a huge disappointment: After we clicked on "My Computer," all the drives appeared empty.

Appearances, however, can be deceiving. Upon closer inspection, the ISIS laptop wasn't empty at all: Buried in the "hidden files" section of the computer were 146 gigabytes of material, containing a total of 35,347 files in 2,367 folders. Abu Ali allowed us to copy all these files -- which included documents in French, English, and Arabic -- onto an external hard drive.

Official: Terror 'chatter' soars...

(The Washington Times) -- The U.S. intelligence community has observed a “significant increase” in chatter among terrorist organizations as the 13th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks nears.

“We’ve noticed a significant increase in chatter among Islamic terrorist organizations overseas both on the Internet and phone lines,” a U.S. government official, speaking on condition of anonymity, told The Blaze.

While the intelligence community can not pinpoint whether or not an attack is planned, the official said that agencies “did see this kind of increase in chatter before the September 11 attacks.”

Deciphering chatter is more difficult than in previous years because of the rise of the Islamic State group, which threatens to drain al Qaeda of resources as it asserts dominance Iraq and Syria. Like al Qaeda, Islamic State, also known as ISIS or ISIL, has openly declared its intent to bring terror to American interests around the globe.

Tan Obama Suit Sparks Twitter Explosion

(by Keith Koffler, White House Dossier) -- Forget what he said. He didn’t say anything in particular that we don’t already know. But . . . the suit!

President Obama stepped to the podium of the White House briefing room Thursday in a tan suit, something he almost never wears, prompting an eruption of tweets that no doubt shook the Twitter website to its core. By one count, more than 4,000 tweets about the suit were launched during the press conference itself.

HARRY REID: NFL Redskins have tried to 'buy off some of my Nevada indians'...

(by Ray Hagar, RGJ) -- THERE WERE SOME good moments from a “pen and pad” session in Reno last week with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., that have yet to be reported.

Reid was asked if Hillary Clinton would run for President.

Reid: “I don’t know. I like Hillary very, very much. She would be a great president but she has to make a personal decision first, if she wants to do it.”

RGJ: Would you urge her to run?

Reid: “If she asks me I will give her my honest opinion.”

RGJ: And what would that be?

Reid: “I will give it to her.”

REID WAS ALSO ASKED about the possibility of the Washington Redskins football team changing their nickname. Reid has said in the past he would like to see the team adopt a new nickname.

Yet he threw in a new wrinkle, saying Redskins owner Daniel Snyder tried to give members of the Las Vegas Paiutes gifts for them to support the “Redskins” brand.

“Redskins is a racist name and native Americans believe that,” Reid said. “They have tried to buy off some of my Nevada Indians and they have not been able to do that, giving them trucks and stuff like that.

UK Raises Terror Threat To 'Severe'

(by BRETT LOGIURATO, Business Insider) -- Britain's government has raised the country's terror threat level to "severe," Home Secretary Theresa May said Friday. 

It's the fourth-highest of five potential threat levels. According to the U.K. government, it means an attack is "highly likely." But there is no intelligence to suggest an attack is imminent.

May said the threat level was raised in general because of the deteriorating situation in Iraq and Syria, where extremist militants from the group calling itself the Islamic State (also ISIS or ISIL). May said, however, that there was no specific threat to Britain that caused the raise in the terror level.

"The increase in the threat level is related to developments in Syria and Iraq where terrorist groups are planning attacks against the West. Some of these plots are likely to involve foreign fighters who have travelled there from the UK and Europe to take part in those conflicts," May said.

"The first and most important duty of government is the protection of the British people. We have already taken steps to amend our powers and increase our capabilities for dealing with the developing terrorist threats we face. That process will continue and the British public should be in no doubt that we will take the strongest possible action to protect our national security."

Prime Minister David Cameron is making a statement on the increase in the terror threat level at 9:45 a.m. ET.

This is the first time Britain's terror threat level has been raised since January 2010, when it was ticked up from "substantial" to "severe." It was subsequently lowered in July 2011.

Why Obama Backed Off More ISIS Strikes: His Own Team Couldn’t Agree on a Syria Strategy

After lots of bluster about striking ISIS on Syria, President Obama threw cold water on the idea, disappointing those who wanted him to broaden the war.

By Josh Rogin and Eli Lake, The Daily Beast

After a week of talk of eliminating the "cancer" of ISIS, President Obama said Thursday that he was not planning to significantly expand the war against the Islamic extremist movement anytime soon.

His remarks came after days of heated debate inside the top levels of his own national security bureaucracy about how, where, and whether to strike ISIS in Syria. But those deliberations – which included a bleak intelligence assessment of America's potential allies in Syria -- failed to produce a consensus battle plan. And so Obama, who has long been reluctant to enter into the Syrian conflict, told reporters Thursday that “we don’t have a strategy yet” for confronting ISIS on a regional level. 

Those inside the administration advocating for going after ISIS in both Iraq and Syria were sorely disappointed – and lamented their boss's lack of urgency in rooting out a threat that only days before was being described in near-apocalyptic terms.

“Senior strategists in the U.S. government have been working hard all week to gather multiple options that the president had asked for to strike ISIS in Syria. There was a deep rooted belief among many -- especially among military circles -- that the ISIS threat can’t be kicked down the road, that it needs to be confronted now, and in a holistic way,” said one Obama administration official who works on the Middle East. “This press conference is going to lead to even more doubt by those that thought that this White House was ready to take meaningful action against ISIS across the board.”

Obama addressed the White House press corps Thursday afternoon just before personally chairing a meeting of his National Security Council, his top cabinet members and national security staffers. The meeting was the culmination of an intense week-long process that included series of lower level meetings and at last one Principals’ Committee that officials described as an effort to convince Obama to expand his air war against ISIS in Iraq to Syria as well.

But before the meeting even started, the president seemed to have made up his mind.

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel Announces City Jobs, Internships Will Go to Illegal Aliens

By: Warner Todd Huston (Breitbart)

In a recent proclamation, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel announced that he intends to give city jobs and internships to so-called "DREAMers," youngsters in the country illegally.
In the announcement, Emanuel proudly stated that "for the first time" Chicago is "opening up nearly 23,000 City-funded internship, volunteer, and job opportunities for undocumented students, or 'DREAMers.'"

"DREAMers and DACA recipients are assets that we need to nurture and develop like precious natural resources for the benefit of the entire community," Congressman Luis V. Gutiérrez (D-IL) says in the announcement. "They are an integral part of Chicago’s workforce of tomorrow. Once again, the City of Chicago and Mayor Rahm Emanuel are leading the way on the inclusion of our immigrant communities."

The announcement goes on to lament the "barriers" that illegal alien teens find to gaining city jobs:

In December 2012, the Chicago New Americans Plan highlighted barriers that DREAMer students faced, including language barriers and information gaps about the opportunities available to them. These impediments have in the past served as an obstacle for these students and their families, in some cases preventing them from accessing critical enrichment programs.

It seems that one "barrier" was not taken notice of – that these students are not citizens and not legally eligible for such opportunities.

In the announcement, Emanuel also promised to "eliminate administrative barriers to employment and internship" for DREAMers and said that he is ordering city staffers to help these students file for "deferred action documentation."

Omar Jamal:  Why isn’t US law enforcement preventing American teens from being radicalized?  (TRT: 16)

OMAR JAMAL: It defies logic, how this is happening under the nose of the law enforcement agency.  What’s going on here?  As we speak right now, young kids, probably at the airport somewhere in this country, (are) going to join ISIS.  What happened?

Omar Jamal: The leaders of my community need to condemn radical Islam.  (TRT: 20)

OMAR JAMAL:  The only way to do something about it is to appeal, and I’m asking this, the majority of the Muslim- American citizens, the leadership of my community, the Muslim community, not only in Minneapolis, but in California, in New York, in DC, to come out in one voice to come out and condemn these tactics.

URGENT ALERT -- Al-Qaeda Urges Muslims To Blow Up Las Vegas…

Via Fox News:

A new English-language Al Qaeda magazine features a how-to article on making car bombs and suggests terror targets in the United States, including casinos in Las Vegas, oil tankers and military colleges, and implies that an attack is imminent.

The online publication, called “Palestine-Betrayal of the Guilty Conscience Al-Malahem” and put out by the media arm of Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, or AQAP, calls for Muslims around the world to follow “the recipe” provided to set off car bombs in crowded venues. It includes a timeline of “selected jihadi operations” that the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), which first flagged the slickly-produced latest edition of the terror publication, finds chilling.

“The timeline concludes with the date 201?’ and blank spaces and question marks for the photo and information of the next attack — implying that it is coming soon.” said MEMRI Executive Director Steve Stalinsky.

There is a suggested list of targets for lone-wolf, or individually executed, terror attacks, including New York’s Times Square, casinos and night clubs in Las Vegas, oil tankers and trains, the Georgia Military College, the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, and General Atomics defense contractor in San Diego.

“This recipe gives you the ability to make a car bomb even in countries with tight security and surveillance,” one article reads, before providing a “shopping list” of supplies needed to make such a bomb, including cooking gas, oxygen gas, a barometer, decoration lamps and matches.

Journalist Organization Demands Fox News Apologize For Their “Islamophobia”…

Yawn…

Via HuffPo:

The Asian American Journalists Association has called on Fox News to apologize for its recent segment on ISIS and the murder of US journalist James Foley.

In a letter posted to the organizations website, AAJA took serious issue with a recent discussion on “The Five” about the violent actions of the terrorist group ISIS. During the segment, co-host Andrea Tantaros spoke about Muslims, Islam and ISIS interchangeably.

“They’ve been doing this for hundreds and hundreds of years if you study the history of Islam,” she said. “This isn’t a surprise. You can’t solve it with a dialogue. You can’t solve it with a summit. You solve it with a bullet to the head.”

AAJA called the comments “alarming,” “inflammatory” and accused the network of perpetuating “Islamophobia.”

“AAJA calls for Tantaros and Fox News to apologize for the irresponsible, inflammatory statements,” the organization said. “We also call on Fox News to discourage its journalists from making blanket comments that serve to perpetuate hate and Islamophobia. Muslims and Islam are not interchangeable terms with terrorists or ISIS. We in the media know better and must be vigilant in our choice of words.”

ALERT -- Ebola virus has mutated repeatedly during current outbreak

(by Brady Dennis, The Washington Post) -- The Ebola virus sweeping through West Africa has mutated repeatedly during the current outbreak, a fact that could hinder diagnosis and treatment of the devastating disease, according to scientists who have genetically sequenced the virus in scores of victims.

The findings, published Thursday in the journal Science, also offer new insights into the origins of the largest and most deadly Ebola outbreak in history, which has killed more than 1,500 people in four countries and shows few signs of slowing. It also provided another reminder of the deep toll the outbreak has taken on health workers and others in the affected areas, as five of the paper’s more than 50 co-authors died from Ebola before publication.

In a collaboration led by scientists at Harvard University and aided by officials at Sierra Leone’s health ministry, researchers sequenced Ebola virus genomes from 78 patients beginning in the early days of the outbreak this spring. Those 99 samples — some patients were tested more than once — suggested that the outbreak began with a single human infection before spreading rapidly, like a spark that grows into a wildfire.

Ebola’s arrival in Sierra Leone in May started with a funeral, according to Thursday’s findings. A young pregnant woman tested positive for the virus and was treated at Kenema Government Hospital. Health workers who traced her contacts discovered that she and more than a dozen other women recently had attended the burial of a traditional healer who had been treating Ebola patients near the Sierra Leone-Guinea border. All of them had been infected.

“They realized she was not an isolated case,” said Pardis Sabeti, an associate professor at Harvard whose lab sequenced the Ebola genomes and quickly made public the data earlier this summer.

The genomic sequencing also offers hints as to how the Ebola “Zaire” strain at the heart of the current outbreak — one of five types of Ebola virus known to infect humans — likely ended up in West Africa in the first place. Researchers said the data suggests that the virus spread from an animal host, possibly bats, and that diverged around 2004 from an Ebola strain in central Africa, where previous outbreaks have occurred.

“We don’t actually know where the virus has been since then,” said Sabeti, referring to the time between 2004 and when the virus resurfaced earlier this year. “We’re trying to piece together an historical record.”

MYSTERY: Missouri hospital treats hundreds of children for unusual virus...

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — An unusual respiratory virus is striking children in the metro in big numbers. Children’s Mercy Hospital is hospitalizing 20 to 30 kids a day with the virus. The hospital is as full now as it is at the height of flu season.

This is not the same virus we told you about several weeks ago that can cause meningitis. This one can cause severe breathing trouble. Children’s Mercy has seen more than 300 cases in recent days in kids of all ages.

Preston Sheldon’s mom says he seemed fine when she took him to pre-school Tuesday. But minutes later, the Grain Valley mom got the call. Her three-year-old son was having trouble breathing.

“You could see his ribs, and his stomach was pushing out really hard… I thought it was an asthma attack,” said Pam Sheldon.

But it was a virus that is inundating Children’s Mercy with patients.

Video Below Shows Alleged Aftermath of Mass Killing of Captives by ISIS in Syria

Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton named in terrorist racketeering lawsuit

(by Bob Unruh, WND) -- Attorney Larry Klayman, fresh off a preliminary court ruling that the National Security Agency’s spying on Americans likely is unconstitutional, now has named President Obama and others in a racketeering complaint.

Klayman, founder of Freedom Watch and a columnist for WND, alleges the president and others laundered U.S. taxpayer money that was spent on Hamas rockets fired against Israel.

The civil lawsuit, filed in federal court in Washington falls under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, or RICO, alleges criminal acts by Obama, Secretary of State John Kerry, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon.

Seeking $1.5 billion in compensatory damages as well as punitive damages, it accuses the global figures of “laundering U.S. dollars” to Hamas, which is officially designated by the U.S. government as a Foreign Terrorist Organization.

“This money has been foreseeably used to buy rockets and construct tunnels to attack Israel and terrorize and kill American and dual American-Israeli citizens who reside or are located in Israel,” Klayman said in a statement.

“The nation and the world have increasingly come to see that Obama views himself primarily as a Muslim and acts accordingly in favoring Islamic interests over Judeo-Christian ones, and the complaint lays out Obama’s history in documented detail,” he said.

Klayman said Obama’s actions “were calculated to harm the nation of Israel.”

“His facilitating and ordering financial and other material aid to Hamas, along with his equally anti-Israel Secretaries of State Kerry and Clinton, and the U.N. Secretary General, is just the latest deadly chapter in what amounts to criminal activity which has logically resulted in harm and death to Jews and Christians and threatens the continued existence of Israel,” he said.

“That is why he and the other defendants were sued under RICO and other relevant laws,” said Klayman.

The White House media office declined to respond by telephone to a request from WND for comment, instructing a reporter to send an email. There was no immediately response to the email inquiry.

The case, No. 14-1484, alleges the defendants conspired to send hundreds of millions of dollars to Hamas “under the false pretext that this financial support will be used for humanitarian purposes.”

“However,” the complaint states, “as recently reported by Voice of America and the New York Times, the recent killing of the chief Hamas financial officer by the IDF confirmed that these U.S. dollars, only some of which [were] found in his bombed out car, [have] predictably fallen into the hands of Hamas’ terrorist wing, which controls and was elected by Gazans to govern over them.”

Klayman’s recent case against the NSA challenged its program of spying on Americans. Two privacy-rights heavyweights, the American Civil Liberties Union and the Electronic Frontier Foundation, recently filed friend-of-the-court briefs in support of Klayman’s arguments.

The case has been advanced to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.

NASA: DANGEROUS SUNSPOT ALIGNING WITH EARTH

NASA: DANGEROUS SUNSPOT ALIGNING WITH EARTH

NASA: DANGEROUS SUNSPOT ALIGNING WITH EARTH

(by F. Michael Maloof, WND) -- NASA is warning a new sunspot spewing powerful X-class flares is beginning to rotate to a position directly in line with Earth.

A direct hit on Earth from an X-class flare could cause major disruptions, or even destruction, to the U.S. electrical grid, which already is very vulnerable, as well as to life-sustaining critical infrastructures dependent on the grid to function.

NASA said the warning regarding the sunspot, AR 2151, could last for weeks.

Eruptions that drew the attention of space experts began last Sunday with an M5.6 solar eruption, which is 10 times weaker than an X-class flare.

X-class flares are the most power solar storms. The least intense flare is a C-class, followed by M and finally X.

“Solar flares are powerful bursts of radiation,” explained NASA spokeswoman Karen Fox. “Harmful radiation from a flare cannot pass through Earth’s atmosphere to physically affect humans on the ground. However, when intense enough, they can disturb the atmosphere in the layer where GPS and communications signals travel.”

Some of the flares spewing from the sun’s surface can be at least 14 times the size of Earth.

NASA and the National Science Foundation has estimated that if the U.S. sustained a direct hit from an X-class flare, it would cost the nation upwards of $2 trillion in the first year and kill up to 90 percent of the U.S. population due to the lack of services, starvation and disease.

The Defense Department is preparing to harden its systems to defend against an EMP event, whether from a solar flare or nuclear attack. But EMP experts point out DOD relies on the civilian electrical grid, which will remain vulnerable unless action is taken.

The flares from AR 2151 were first detected Sunday by NASA’s powerful Solar Dynamics Observatory and Solar Helospheric Observatory, or SOHO, a joint NASA and European Space Agency activity.

The sun is going through an 11-year cycle, which at its peak is called a solar storm maximum. The current cycle is known as Solar Cycle 24.
