https://conservativedailypost.com/breaking-vote-passes-56-44-in-the-house-bill-to-prohibit-sharia-law-in-united-states/

Many on the right know that Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) has brought forth a couple of ideas for making sure that sharia law can never be welcomed into America. He wishes, as do many sound minds who honor the precepts of liberty, to halt the hold that radical Islamic practices would have upon our culture, and those who would suffer mercilessly under it. Under this awful rule, humans are treated as objects to be abused for the smallest infraction. This is all due to the teachings of a man who claimed to get the divine message of Islam in between marrying children and trampling the rights of Jews and Christians.

After worrying about the “intent” of a bill to “prohibit state courts from applying foreign law” and to stop the honoring of sharia from poisoning the West as it has the Middle East and is doing in London, the legislation is said to have moved onward. It passed the “House largely along party lines with a 56-44 vote.” Maybe some were worried that the law would be used as it should be, not just against sharia law, but against the United Nations, NATO and any other foreign body who the left worships. THAT is likely what their main concern was, and it is something that could really help America escape the evil edicts of the NWO.

Rachel Dolezal paints a dark picture of her childhood in her new memoir, In Full Color: Finding My Place in a Black and White World.

In the book, she says her brother molested her as a child, her family forced her to eat her own vomit and she wore clothing made of dog fur.

She talks about her desire to be black at a young age.

I would pretend to be a dark-skinned princess in the Sahara Desert or one of the Bantu women living in the Congo … imagining I was a different person living in a different place was one of the few ways … that I could escape the oppressive environment I was raised in.

She would rub mud on her hands, arms, feet and legs, she writes.

As she grew older, she didn't correct those who thought she was black. In fact, she embraced it. She tanned and braided her hair.

Her first marriage to an African American man was rough because Dolezal writes she was "too black" for him.

During a television interview in November 2015, Dolezal acknowledged being born to white parents, but also said she identifies as black. Amid the controversy of her racial identity she stepped down as president of the Spokane, Wash., branch of the NAACP.

>SAN FRANCISCO — AT&T, Verizon, Johnson & Johnson and other major U.S. advertisers are pulling hundreds of millions of dollars in business from Google and its video service YouTube despite the Internet giant's pledge this week to keep offensive and extremist content away from ads.

>AT&T said that it is halting all ad spending on Google except for search ads. That means AT&T ads will not run on YouTube or two million websites that take part in Google's ad network.

>"We are deeply concerned that our ads may have appeared alongside YouTube content promoting terrorism and hate," the company said in an emailed statement. "Until Google can ensure this won’t happen again, we are removing our ads from Google’s non-search platforms."

>Sanette Chao, who handles marketing communications and branding for Verizon, confirmed that mobile operator has also pulled its ads.

>"Once we were notified that our ads were appearing on non-sanctioned websites, we took immediate action to suspend this type of ad placement and launched an investigation," Chao said in a statement.

>Google declined to comment on the defection of advertisers.

>"As announced, we’ve begun an extensive review of our advertising policies and have made a public commitment to put in place changes that give brands more control over where their ads appear," the Internet giant said in a statement. "We're also raising the bar for our ads policies to further safeguard our advertisers’ brands."

Here is a good example of why it is as he claims. Only liberal morons would want to close down a subreddit that basically puts all the nigger haters in a small box voluntarily and flush them out into the mainstream subs all because the people hate the wrong thing. Now, there is just that passive seething racism run amok all over the site. They chose thought policing over just engagement.

That Daryl Davis guy had it right. "If you are talking to me you are not fighting me."

Once reddit chose not to engage and ban a whole sub because of "hate speech", i knew the site was never going to truly represent all people and creeds any longer. Just nerfball liberal safe space.

The motion, known as M-103, became a matter of acrimonious debate, with opponents painting it as a slippery slope towards limiting freedom of speech and even bringing in Sharia law.

Liberal MP Iqra Khalid, who sponsored the motion, was applauded loudly by her Liberal fellows as she stood to vote.

The issue even became a bone of contention among Conservative leadership hopefuls.

Has anyone got the actual text for M-103? I want to see what the paper defines islamaphobia to be exactly because I'm finding nothing other than "Combating islamaphobia as well as all racial and religious discrimination".

Correct me if I'm wrong but doesn't Canada already have those sorts of anti-discrimination laws in the first place? M-103 is going to end either doing JACK SHIT about islamaphobia or it's going to instill some whack job blasphemy law or something.

The Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS) has opened an investigation into the online posting of potentially hundreds of explicit photos of current and former female Marines and other service members, CNN has confirmed.
A private Facebook group called "Marines United" contained a link to a Google Drive folder, where the photos were being stored, a US defense official told CNN. Members on the site solicited others to submit photos of women without their knowledge. The cloud storage folder has been removed at the request of the military,

>The rules, which prohibit providers from abusing the data they gather on their customers as they browse the Web on cellphones and computers, were approved last year over objections from Republicans who argued the regulations went too far.

This makes me fucking livid.

>A group of boys allegedly raped a 15-year-old Chicago girl, streamed the attack live on Facebook, while roughly 40 people watched the savage assault live and did nothing about it.

>Fox News reports that police only discovered what had happened after the girl’s mother approached Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson as he was leaving a news conference at the 10th District police station in the Lawndale neighborhood late Monday.

>The girl’s mother showed Johnson screenshots of the alleged assault, according to Johnson’s spokesman Anthony Guglielmi. Johnson told WGN-TV, “What’s even more disturbing, more than the fact that they did this, there were so many people that saw this and they didn’t pick up the phone and dial 911. That’s just not right and (we’re) working on it and try to bring it to a successful resolution.”

>Johnson ordered an investigation; the police department asked Facebook to pull the video off the Internet. Her mother showed WGN News four screens grabs that WGN reported are too graphic for TV.

>The Chicago Tribune stated that the girl, a Lane Tech freshman, was reported missing after she didn’t return to her Lawndale home after going to the store. The girl’s uncle reportedly saw the Facebook Live video showing the boys raping his niece. The girl wasn’t found until Tuesday morning; police said she appeared to be in “good condition” and was returned to her mother.

>On Monday, before the girl was found, the mother said, “I just want her home. I just want to make sure she’s ok cause I know she’s probably scared and embarrassed. I just want her back home.”

House Speaker Paul Ryan sensationally pulled his Obamacare repeal bill from the floor Friday, a day after President Donald Trump had threatened to walk away from health care reform if he didn't get a vote.

After a dramatic day on Capitol Hill, Ryan rushed from the White House to Capitol Hill to tell Trump he did not have the votes to pass the measure, the culmination of seven years of Republican efforts to eradicate President Barack Obama's proudest domestic achievement.

"We were very close," Trump said in the Oval Office after the bill was pulled. "It was a very, very tight margin."

As Ryan presented the dire vote totals in his meeting with Trump, he explicitly recommended the President pull the bill, according to a senior GOP official. The decision was ultimately Trump's. Trump made the call at 3 p.m., as the rest of House leadership was gathering in Ryan's office.

"We came up short," Ryan told reporters. "We are going to be living with Obamacare for the forseeable future."
Ryan told fellow Republicans they are "moving on" from health care, Reps. Andy Barr, R-Kentucky, and Bill Flores, R-Texas, told CNN. Trump said tax reform would be next.

The Armenian nose is a source of national pride, sometimes said to be like the country’s impressive mountains: high, proud, and honest.

But what looks good in a landscape painting does not necessarily meet today’s global beauty standards. And increasingly, Armenians – especially young women – are opting for rhinoplasty in an effort to conform to the idealized Western appearance.

“As a country, we try to be Western, and this applies to the beauty standards, too,” said Kristina Grigoryan, who has practiced plastic surgery in Yerevan for 16 years. “We are still proud of being Armenians, but less proud of having such features.”

Armenia does not keep national statistics on it, but anecdotal evidence suggests that the procedure is becoming more popular: Grigoryan’s clinic performs about 500 nose jobs a year, up from 150 to 200 five years ago, she said, and more and more clinics are offering the procedure.

The Armenian nose may be ancient, but the Armenian nose job is a recent innovation. In the Soviet Union, plastic surgery was mostly restricted to reconstructive cases. The massive 1988 earthquake in Armenia boosted the demand for reconstructive plastic surgery, an expertise that doctors later took advantage of to go into the cosmetic surgery business. “This is how plastic surgery started to develop in Armenia,” said Karen Danielyan, a plastic surgeon in Yerevan. “And now rhinoplasty is the most popular and most common plastic surgery in Armenia – three out of four operations are rhinoplasties.”

Danielyan is one of the pioneers of rhinoplasty in Armenia: in 2002, he started the “Most Armenian Nose” competition, with the first prize being a free nose job by the doctor himself. Back then, he said, the contest was a publicity stunt to drum up business.

And some Armenian women are bucking the trend: one pop singer, Silva Hakobyan, has shot down tabloid rumors that she plans to reduce her quintessentially Armenian nose, and says she is proud of her natural features.

Many women still worry that typically Armenian features may damage one’s marriage prospects, Danielyan said, noting that the most common rationale stated by his patients is the wish to find a partner. “If you have a big nose, you won’t get married, and if you don’t marry, it’s not good,” he said.

Rouben Abrahamyan, the winner of the inaugural Most Armenian Nose competition – and its only male entrant – says he still feels bad for his runner up. “She was very beautiful, but her big nose damaged her appearance,” said Abrahamyan, a journalist and university lecturer in Yerevan. He entered the contest because he had an injury to his nose that caused difficulty breathing, and is glad to have that cleared up. Still, he said, “I felt like changing places with her so that she could have a better nose. In my case, it was just a medical treatment, but she would look better with a smaller nose.”
