The theme of the 29th annual Muslim Day Parade in New York City on Sunday was “Islam & America Share Common Values,” but you may not have known that by the looks of some of the displays.
While UrbanInfidel.com notes that the black flag associated with the Islamic State that was so prevalent last year was absent this year, the presence of a woman being hanged, the Muslim Brotherhood in full force and girls in cages at the parade might have been extreme – even by New York City standards.
The most unusual display of the parade featured a female mannequin dressed in the Egyptian flag hanging by a noose in the back of a truck. All along the sides of the truck were photos of Egyptian protesters…

…This is made even more dangerous by what organization determines who is are refugees and who aren’t. It’s the UN, driven largely by the world’s largest international body, the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC). The OIC is a modern day caliphate made up of 56 countries and the Palestinian terrorists.
For years, a handful of my colleagues and I have warned of the reckless immigration polices here in America and in the West — refusing immigration status to persecuted religious minorities under Islam (Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Egypt, etc.), while allowing whole Muslim communities from jihad nations to immigrate…
President’s decision not to attend is among first in recent history
The Washington Free Beacon
President Barack Obama has declined to attend a dedication ceremony in October for a new memorial honoring American veterans who have been disabled fighting for their country in wars, according to sources close to the event.
The American Veterans Disabled for Life Memorial (AVDLM), the first such memorial of its kind, is set to be dedicated during a ceremony on Oct. 5 near the National Mall in downtown Washington, D.C.
However, Obama, who was first invited to attend the event in January, will not be among those in attendance, according to a source who is familiar with the situation. This would be among the first national memorials in recent history not to be formally accepted in person by a sitting U.S. president.
Organizers of the event were caught off guard when informed by the White House of the president’s decision this week and are hoping to receive an explanation from the White House as to why Obama will not be attending the ceremony, according to the source, who is involved with the memorial and was informed of the decision this week…

…Legal battles against state governor’s with higher political aspirations keep cropping up. But looking deeper into attacks on Republican governors from Texas, Wisconsin and Louisiana reveals George Soros’ checkbook was behind it all – but the news media aren’t about to point that out.
The group that first filed an indictment charge against Texas Gov. Rick Perry was funded by Soros, the liberal billionaire, but the trail of his money didn’t end there. Both the recall election for Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and an even less successful recall attempt for Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal were rooted in Soros-funded groups. Between them, these three potential Republican presidential candidates were targeted by groups receiving more than $6.3 million from Soros…

Despite a dishonest attempt by Yale’s Muslim Students Association to sabotage a scheduled lecture by women’s rights activist Ayaan Hirsi Ali, the event took place Monday evening absent of conflict. On the contrary, Hirsi Ali was met with a standing round of applause at the end of the evening.
The Somali-born Hirsi Ali, who fled after undergoing forced genital mutilation and was arranged to be married, delivered the talk on the “Clash of Civilizations: Islam and the West” in which she touched on the Muslim world, which she deemed “on fire.”
She thanked Yale University for standing for academic freedom as opposed to Brandeis University which revoked the offer of an honorary degree in April.
Hirsi Ali stated that she understood United States president Barack Obama’s hesitancy to enter war but warned that “a world not led by America is going to be really, really a bad place to live in and we can see that.”…

Jay Dobyns, a retired ATF agent and whistleblower, has won his lawsuit against the U.S. Government. Judge Francis Allegra ordered the government to pay Dobyns $173,000 while throwing out the government’s claim against Dobyns for writing a tell all book and producing a movie about his experiences with ATF…
…The judge even found that the testimony of two ATF superiors in Arizona, Charles Higman and George Gillett, were “unworthy of belief.”
Gillett was also one of the Phoenix ATF officials behind Operation Fast and Furious, the ill-construed gunwalking operation that erupted into a national scandal after the murder of U.S. Border Patrol agent Brian Terry. Gillett has since retired but remains under investigation after illegally selling a gun in Phoenix that turned up at the killing of a Mexican beauty queen in the Mexican state of Sinaloa when she and a group of narco-traffickers encountered an Army checkpoint…

Gov. Bobby Jindal of Louisiana hopes to emerge as a leading policy thinker in the field of potential GOP presidential candidates. He released an energy plan Tuesday that in some ways is more nuanced and moderate than ideas espoused by other candidates. The 43-year-old governor’s energy plan includes a number of proposals championed by other Republicans, including expanded domestic energy production and the elimination of environmental regulations that target coal-fired power plants. Here’s five more surprising things you should know.
1 America first
He focuses first and foremost on how the U.S. oil and natural gas boom is fueling America’s manufacturing renaissance. He waits until near the end of his report to talk about oil and natural gas exports and how they can help bolster national security. This is an important distinction and one that indicates Mr. Jindal may not be as bullish as some other potential GOP presidential candidates, including Sens. Rand Paul of Kentucky and Ted Cruz of Texas, on allowing unfettered exports of oil and natural gas.
2 Supporting exports, with nuance
To be sure, Mr. Jindal does explicitly back exports of natural gas and oil, but he also goes out of his way to emphasize the importance of eliminating regulatory roadblocks impeding the U.S. refining sector, which has a big footprint in Louisiana and is benefiting from the ban on oil exports by exporting record amounts of refined products…
