You Can’t Make This Up=> Marvel Comics Creates Devout Muslim Superhero Called ‘ISIS’

GatewayPundit - Fri, 08/04/2017 - 14:20

You Just Can’t Make This Up…
Marvel Comics created a devout Muslim character called “Isis.”

The creation of ISIS is a direct response to the election of President Donald Trump…

Well they do have a lot of potential readers.

Thanks to Barack Obama ISIS is operating in operating in at least 17 countries today.

Newsarama reported:

DC Comics superhero Isis will be joining DC’s Legends of Tomorrow in its upcoming third season under her real name of Zari Adrianna Tomaz (played by Tala Ashe), and the fact that the character is a practicing Muslim is a choice show producer Marc Guggenheim said was made specifically in response to the election of U.S. President Donald Trump.

“You might have heard there was this election,” said Guggenheim during this week’s Television Critics Association press tour in Beverly Hills (as quoted by Variety). “Not to get political, but something that we all gravitated toward in the writers room was making this character Muslim.”

“Representation is a really powerful thing,” added Ashe. “When I was growing up watching television, I didn’t see anyone who looked like me. When I think of the kid version of myself, I think it broadens your perspective. What I think is so lovely about this show is that the Legends are this tapestry that represent America today.”

The upcoming issues ought to be terrific.
Killing Christians.

Tossing gays from the top of buildings.

Beheading infidels.

Slaughtering concert goers.

They certainly have plenty of content available.

DC Comics is turning an old superhero from the 1970's into the first "Muslim Superhero" to spite Trump.
Her name? Isis.

July jobs report: “Trouncing expectations” but falling short of June

Hot Air - Fri, 08/04/2017 - 14:01

The US economy showed significant job growth in July, besting expectations in the marketplace, but still falling short of the mark set in June. The BLS reports that the US added 209,000 jobs last month, while the U-3 unemployment rate remained largely the same as it has been for the past few months:

Total nonfarm payroll employment increased by 209,000 in July, and the unemployment rate was little changed at 4.3 percent, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today. Employment increased in food services and drinking places, professional and business services, and health care.

Both the unemployment rate, at 4.3 percent, and the number of unemployed persons, at 7.0 million, changed little in July. After declining earlier in the year, the unemployment rate has shown little movement in recent months.

The initial estimate from June showed an addition of 222,000 jobs, which makes July a little less robust. The BLS revised that figure upward to 231,000, while revising May downward by 7,000 for a net gain in revisions of 2,000 over the past two months. The consensus expectation was 183,000, perhaps set in part by the second straight undershoot from ADP at 178,000 on Wednesday.

As set against expectations, it’s a good report. On its own, it’s substantial but not terribly impressive. The U-3 figures have plateaued more or less around 4.3% over the last few months, while the U-6 unemployment rate has been at 8.6% three of the last four months. That’s not too far above the level previous to the last recession in 2007, which is a good indication that the job market is healthier, but that has been a trend going back over the last couple of years, too.

The labor force participation rate remains stuck at 62.9%, although the employment-population ratio has shown a little more movement this year, rising 0.4%. On the plus side, the workforce expanded by 349,000, a good sign, while the number of people working part time for economic reasons declined by 172,000.

A look at job-creation numbers over the past two years shows 2017 lagging behind the less-than-spectacular growth levels of 2016:

So far, this year has been more consistent than the previous year, but lacks the amplitude of job growth seen in those figures. Recall too that few seemed satisfied with the results in 2016, too.

Media reports emphasized the win over expectations, but the AP also noted that wages have not responded to the growth seen over the last couple of months:

Growth in Americans’ paychecks, however, remains stubbornly slow. Average hourly pay rose by 2.5 percent from a year earlier, the same tepid annual pace as in June. That’s below the 3.5 percent to 4 percent that is typical when the unemployment rate is this low. …

Overall, hiring this year has averaged 184,000 a month, roughly in line with 2016′s average of 187,000.

Why are wages stagnating at this level of unemployment? The U-3 number depends on workforce participation, which has changed dramatically since the Great Recession. This shows that the U-3 number of today is no longer comparable to earlier rates in the historical series. It also suggests that despite the use of words like “robust” and “full employment,” the job market is not as healthy as assumed. There are still people who should be in the work force who aren’t, and that drag is holding down wage growth because of the impact that sidelined labor has on pricing.

Overall, this is a pretty good jobs report. We’d rather have 200K growth than 100K growth, of course, so it’s better than we’ve seen in May and March of this year.  However, we need to have sustained 300K growth over several months to get wages to rise organically. Right now we’re merely keeping pace with the status quo of the last year or two, which strongly suggests that employers don’t really see much indication of economic growth beyond the 2.5% range that has been the upper limit of the recovery from the Great Recession.

Spoken Like a True Racist=> Angry Black Feminist Says White People Must Quit Using Gif Images of Black People

GatewayPundit - Fri, 08/04/2017 - 13:42

Angry black feminist Lauren Michele Jackson demanded this week that white people quit using gif images of black people.

She says it feels like “digital black face.”

Girl please.

This is the racist insanity the left is spoon-feeding kids today.
The Federalist reported:

In a column published by Teen Vogue on Wednesday, a writer argues that if you are white and share a GIF of a black person, you are racist. Lauren Michele Jackson calls the act of sharing a reaction GIF of a black person “digital blackface.”

“Digital blackface does not describe intent, but an act — the act of inhabiting a black persona,” she writes. “Employing digital technology to co-opt a perceived cache or black cool, too, involves playacting blackness in a minstrel-like tradition.”

The “minstrel-like” tradition she’s referring to stems particularly from vaudeville days, when mostly white actors but sometimes also black actors would paint themselves in makeup to resemble an African-American and often portray such characters in an exaggerated or ridiculous manner. In the early nineteenth century particularly, blackface was a common theater trope, but gradually disappeared as Americans’ racial attitudes shifted and the portrayal became seen as an uncharitable caricature.

Newt Gingrich Rips Mueller: “The Deep State At Its Very Worst” (VIDEO)

GatewayPundit - Fri, 08/04/2017 - 13:37

On Thursday evening, Former Speaker and Trump surrogate New Gingrich ripped Robert Mueller on Sean Hannity’s program, calling the Special Counsel “the deep state at its very worst.”

Newt Gingrich blasts Robert Mueller: "The Deep State at its very worst." pic.twitter.com/9cqGA8Lgt7

— Josh Caplan (@joshdcaplan) August 4, 2017

The Hill reports:

The Gingrich commentary came hours after The Wall Street Journal reported that Mueller empaneled a grand jury.

“The Mueller threat has probably been the most deadly, he has the power of the law, he has the ability to indict people, the ability to negotiate and let some people off if they’ll testify against other people,” said Gingrich, also a Fox News contributor.

“I regard the Mueller example as the deep state at its very worst and it worries me. It fits the whole case that we’ve seen the Justice Department at times being out of control,” he continued.

“[Trump is] making progress every week, he’s getting things done. He’s beginning to move toward a tax cut bill that will be historic. He’s gotten more judges approved than Obama had at this point, Obama and a Democratic Congress. Despite everything, I think the Trump system is beginning to work.”

Legal experts say the decision to impanel a grand jury is fairly typical in these cases, and President Trump’s lawyer, Ty Cobb, said his team will fully cooperate.

Yesterday, The Gateway Pundit reported Special Counsel Robert Mueller is ramping up his investigation into Russia’s alleged role in the 2016 presidential election. The Wall Street Journal reports Mueller will impanel a Washington Grand Jury to investigate Russian interference in the 2016 president election. 

Wall Street Journal reports:

The grand jury, which began its work in recent weeks, is a sign that Mr. Mueller’s inquiry is ramping up and that it will likely continue for months. Mr. Mueller is investigating Russia’s efforts to influence the 2016 election and whether President Donald Trump’s campaign or associates colluded with the Kremlin as part of that effort.

A spokesman for Mr. Mueller, Joshua Stueve, declined to comment. Moscow has denied seeking to influence the election, and Mr. Trump has vigorously disputed allegations of collusion. The president has called Mr. Mueller’s inquiry a “witch hunt.”

Ty Cobb, special counsel to the president, said he wasn’t aware that Mr. Mueller had started using a new grand jury. “Grand jury matters are typically secret,” Mr. Cobb said. “The White House favors anything that accelerates the conclusion of his work fairly.…The White House is committed to fully cooperating with Mr. Mueller.”

Before Mr. Mueller was tapped in May to be special counsel, federal prosecutors had been using at least one other grand jury, located in Alexandria, Va., to assist in their criminal investigation of Michael Flynn, a former national security adviser. That probe, which has been taken over by Mr. Mueller’s team, focuses on Mr. Flynn’s work in the private sector on behalf of foreign interests.

Grand juries are powerful investigative tools that allow prosecutors to subpoena documents, put witnesses under oath and seek indictments, if there is evidence of a crime. Legal experts said that the decision by Mr. Mueller to impanel a grand jury suggests he believes he will need to subpoena records and take testimony from witnesses.

According to a new report by VOX, the witch hunt just got worse, as Mueller has notified former FBI Head James Comey and former Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe that they should be prepared to testify against President Trump. 

VOX reports:

Shortly after the appointment of special counsel Robert Mueller in May, Acting Director of the FBI Andrew McCabe told several of the highest-ranking managers of the bureau they should consider themselves possible witnesses in any investigation into whether President Donald Trump engaged in obstruction of justice, according to two senior federal law enforcement officials.

McCabe has told colleagues that he too is a potential witness in the probe of whether Trump broke the law by trying to thwart the FBI’s Russia investigation and the investigation into whether the Trump campaign colluded with the Russian government to defeat Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election.

Two senior federal law enforcement officials have told me that the new revelations illustrate why they believe the potential case against Trump is stronger than outsiders have thought.

“What you are going to have is the potential for a powerful obstruction case,” a senior law enforcement official said. “You are going to have the [former] FBI director testify, and then the acting director, the chief of staff to the FBI director, the FBI’s general counsel, and then others, one right after another. This has never been the word of Trump against what [James Comey] has had to say. This is more like the Federal Bureau of Investigation versus Donald Trump.”

Trump and his supporters have long argued that it would be difficult, if not impossible, for the special counsel to bring an obstruction case against Trump. The case would rely on the word of one man versus another, that of the president of the United States versus the director of the FBI he fired. But this was never the case.

Including Comey, as many as 10, and possibly more, of the nation’s most senior law enforcement officials are likely to be questioned as part of the investigation into whether Trump committed obstruction of justice, according to two government investigators with first-hand knowledge of the matter. Comey’s notes on his conversations could also be used as evidence, according to many reports.

Four convicted felons seek to become Detroit mayor

Hot Air - Fri, 08/04/2017 - 13:21

Here’s an interesting fact: Half of the eight candidates in Detroit’s mayoral primary are convicted felons, mainly for crimes involving drugs, firearms or assault with intent to commit murder. Could make for exciting council meetings.

Other than that, Tuesday’s voting in the nation’s 23rd largest city is just another contest among Democrats for municipal control of a decaying big city.

Democrats run two-thirds of the United States’ 100 largest cities, including New York, Los Angeles and, of course, Chicago. All are experiencing serious problems and with the turn-of-the-century two-term exceptions of New York under Rudy Giuliani and Richard Riordan in LA, enduring long periods of one-party control.

It’s been 55 years since Detroit elected a Republican mayor, just about the length of Detroit’s decline, as it plummeted from the nation’s automotive capital and one of the top 10 cities. Billions have been spent trying to renew the people and place.

Four years ago with an estimated $20 billion in debts, Detroit declared the largest municipal bankruptcy in U.S. history. That same year Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick began his 28-year prison sentence with no chance of parole for corruption and perjury.

It’s been a tough political road for America’s big cities under one-party rule that prohibits political cleansing. Chicago hasn’t had a Republican mayor in 86 years.

In those decades millions of working Americans fled big cities for the suburbs and ex-urbs and employers followed them, further eroding tax bases to support such things as inner-city schools and infrastructure. Detroit lost another nearly six percent of its population just between 2010 and last year.

Among the 100 largest cities, others also lost thousands of residents like Baltimore, Pittsburgh, Buffalo, Toledo, St. Louis and Cleveland. But Detroit’s losses were by far the worst.

With no national leaders and those in Congress in their seventies, Democrats have shown no sign of political rejuvenation, in fact, the opposite.

Under Barack Obama’s me-first political leadership Democrats lost more than 1,000 state legislative districts since 2010, giving Republicans the most state seats since the party was formed in 1854. The GOP, of course, also holds the White House and both houses of Congress, for now.

Thursday night at a Trump rally in Huntington as foreseen here, West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice announced he was switching parties to the GOP.

That’s the first gubernatorial party flip for Republicans in a quarter-century. And it gives them an historic record 34 governor’s seats, 26 of them with control of both houses of the state legislature. Democrats hold 15 governorships, six with both houses.

This cripples Democrats’ development of a political farm team for federal elections. And it would seem to create a golden political opportunity for the GOP. “We are going to fix our inner cities,” Trump said in his Nov. 8 victory speech. Which is much easier — and more often — said than done.

Detroit’s primary contestants are all Democrats, of course. The top two finishers face off come fall.

Thanks to some impressive basic reporting by the Detroit News, we know their backgrounds. Not surprisingly, those with past legal difficulties say their records taught them about adversity and qualify them to oversee a troubled city of about 670,000 remaining residents. Polls indicate the two leaders are the incumbent mayor, Mike Duggan, and Coleman Young II, a state senator and son of the city’s first black mayor.

Neither has a criminal record.

He’s Cracking!=> H.R. McMaster ‘Increasingly Volatile’ and ‘Frequently Blows His Top’

GatewayPundit - Fri, 08/04/2017 - 13:15

Is National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster cracking under the pressure? It’s not easy attempting to derail President Trump’s ‘America First’ agenda. A new reports says McMaster has become ‘increasingly volatile and ‘frequently blows his top.’

Breitbart News reports:

The negative stories surrounding his time in the White House are causing McMaster to lose his cool, according to a Politico report citing White House officials who have interacted with the general.

“McMaster, whose temper is legendary, frequently blows his top in high-level meetings,” the report notes, citing national security leaks that he believes undercut his authority. McMaster and Steve Bannon also clashed with each other in front of the president during a reported meeting about a strategy on Afghanistan.

Reports Thursday revealed that McMaster concluded that former National Security Adviser Susan Rice did nothing wrong, amidst questions about her decisions to unmask the identities of Trump transition officials communicating with Russians.  A letter from McMaster to Rice also surfaced, showing that he assured her that her security clearance would remain intact.

As The Gateway Pundit reported yesterday, it’s no secret National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster and Chief Strategist Steve Bannon are battling over control of President Trump’s agenda. McMaster is furious with Bannon, accusing him of leaking damaging information about the Globalists to Breitbart News. Things got so bad between the two that Def Sec Mattis had to break them up.

POLITICO reports:

McMaster is fiercely at odds with Steve Bannon, the Trump strategist who was removed from the principals committee of the National Security Council in April after McMaster’s appointment. In mid-July, the two sparred openly, in a widely attended policy meeting about Afghanistan, with McMaster advocating greater U.S. involvement and Bannon arguing for a major pullback.

The dispute got so out of hand, according to a pair of senior White House officials, that Secretary of Defense James Mattis had to intervene to get the discussion back on track.

While he has occasionally clashed with Kushner, the influential son-in-law, has a better relationship with him these days, a White House official with direct knowledge said.

The officials also said that McMaster fumes that he believes Bannon is responsible for leaking negative information about him to the news media — including via Breitbart.com, the far-right news site Bannon ran before joining the Trump campaign in 2016.

Several of the officials, who like others spoke on the condition they not be identified for fear of losing their jobs, said McMaster, who holds a Ph.D. in American history, remains on shaky ground with Trump, who they said wants to keep him — for now.

A spokesman for McMaster declined to address questions about McMaster’s relationship with key White House officials and his plans in the days ahead.

Wasserman Schultz: “Did the right thing” in keeping Awan on payroll until airport arrest

Hot Air - Fri, 08/04/2017 - 12:41

Former DNC chair and current US Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz has finally broken her silence on her now-jailed IT adviser — to offer defiance to her critics. After months of investigation, the FBI arrested Imran Awan at the airport as he attempted to leave the US for Pakistan, and he faces bank fraud charges, at least for now.  The rest of her colleagues had terminated Awan months earlier, but Wasserman Schultz had kept him on the payroll until his arrest. She tells the Sun-Sentinel that she’d do it all over again, and that it was “the right thing” to do:

Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz defiantly stands by her decision to keep an information technology aide on her payroll for six months after he was banned from the House network and fired by other members of Congress.

“I believe that I did the right thing, and I would do it again,” Wasserman Schultz said Thursday in an exclusive interview with the Sun Sentinel. “There are times when you can’t be afraid to stand alone, and you have to stand up for what’s right.

“It would have been easier for me to just fire him,” she said.

Awan’s access to the computer network had been cut off when the investigation began, which makes his continued status with Wasserman Schultz even more curious. She claims that Awan still provided valuable consultations on non-network matters, such as printers, phones, websites, and software. However, there are plenty of consultants available to help with those issues and who can get cleared to help with network matters as well. Why didn’t Wasserman Schultz find a consultant with a better range of available services to replace Awan once informed of the investigation?

This is where “the right thing” comes into play. Wasserman Schultz claimed that Awan appeared to be a victim of racism at the Department of Justice, and that she was defending him against unfair prosecution:

“I had grave concerns about his due process rights being violated,” she said. “When their investigation was reviewed with me, I was presented with no evidence of anything that they were being investigated for. And so that, in me, gave me great concern that his due process rights were being violated. That there were racial and ethnic profiling concerns that I had,” she said. …

And, she said, she believes he may have been put under scrutiny because of his religious faith. Awan is Muslim.

That was apparently Wasserman Schultz’ mindset right up to the point where Awan tried to flee the country. At that point, she terminated his work with her office … but why? If Awan’s the victim of unfair prosecution, wouldn’t “the right thing” be to keep him on the payroll now, too? If she’s firing him now after the indictment got filed, isn’t that an admission that Awan’s not a victim of profiling at all, but someone whom the Capitol police and DoJ legitimately suspected of crimes? And if that’s the case, then doesn’t that call into question Wasserman Schultz’ singular decision to maintain his access to Congress despite having received warnings of Awan’s activities?

The investigation may not go much further than bank fraud, Anthony Man reports. His source said that the DoJ has not found any “national security implications” in the probe thus far. The report last week that the FBI seized hard drives and computer equipment from a house owned by Awan might only relate to the distribution of funds from the bank fraud, although it might be too soon to tell whether it extends into any other crimes, too. Wasserman Schultz points out that the Congressional network to which Awan (and all other members of Congress) have access does not contain any classified information, which would normally make it a low-value target for espionage anyway. As for the suspicion that Awan may have been the DNC leaker, Wasserman Schultz says it’s impossible. She never had him do any work for the DNC.

Even so, it still seems very strange for anyone to retain an IT adviser who’s the target of an ongoing Capitol police/DoJ fraud investigation, especially for someone in Congress and a high-ranking official of a major political party. Wasserman Schultz’ colleagues clearly thought so too, and so it’s likely that we have not yet heard the full story on Awan’s work in her office.

Update: I misspelled Rep. Wasserman Schultz’ last name in several places in the original post, including in the headline. I’ve fixed it, and apologize for the error.

“Now or never” girl gets relatively light sentence

Hot Air - Fri, 08/04/2017 - 12:01

A Massachusetts Juvenile Court judge has handed down his sentence in the case of Michelle Carter. You will recall that the then 17 year old Carter was the girl who encouraged Conrad Roy to “just do it” and kill himself by sending a series of text messages to the young man. Though prosecutors had been looking for a longer stretch in prison than many murderers wind up getting, Judge Moniz decided on a considerably shorter jail stay with only part of it being mandatory. (NBC News)

A Massachusetts woman showed little emotion as she was sentenced to 15 months in jail on Thursday for coercing her boyfriend via text to kill himself.

Bristol County Juvenile Court Judge Lawrence Moniz found Michelle Carter, 20, guilty of involuntary manslaughter in June for encouraging Conrad Roy III, 18, to take his own life in July 2014 after prosecutors successfully argued the then 17-year-old was an attention-seeking teen, desperate to play the grieving girlfriend. She had faced up to 20 years in prison.

Moniz gave her a 2.5 year sentence and said only 15 months was mandatory.

Even the 15 months may still be avoided because the judge is allowing carter to remain free while her appeals play out. That’s actually the most productive part of the decision because I still remain hopeful that a higher court may look this case over and realize that Carter wasn’t guilty of anything other than being a terrible human being.

Since I wrote about this when the initial guilty verdict was handed down I won’t go over the entire case again here, but this decision remains a travesty. Michelle Carter appears to be a simply horrible person based on all of the evidence which has been made available to the public. I certainly wouldn’t want to hang out with her nor would I want any of my friends or relatives doing so. Anyone who could push so hard to convince an otherwise healthy and normal young man who she ostensibly cared about to end his life is definitely lacking in the milk of human kindness.

So she’s a terrible person. But under the laws of the United States of America we don’t lock someone up for being a terrible person. Carter was miles away from the scene of the “crime” on the night in question and was only in contact with the deceased via text messages over their phones. Conrad Roy had the ability to get out of that car and save his own life and in fact did so at one point. Despite the urging and badgering coming from Carter, there was only one person who put Roy back in the vehicle to die and that was Roy himself.

Counter-arguments I keep hearing about how his mental condition made him particularly vulnerable leading to Carter having some sort of “responsibility” for his welfare carry no weight. She was not his doctor. Nor was she a first responder of any sort. She was his girlfriend. Roy was responsible for his own actions and if he was mentally incompetent to serve as his own guardian then his family should have stepped in and appointed someone to oversee him.

If Michelle Carter belongs in jail for the crime of acting like a crappy human being then we’d better start building a lot more jails. I’m guessing every one of you knows at least one or two people who are simply horrible. Shall we just start locking them all up?
