Texas Senator takes action to protect critical infrastructure

Texas Senator Bob Hall hears testimony on on Senate Bill 1398 from Kevin Freeman and Frank Gaffney of the Center for Security Policy. SB 1398 sets scientific and security based standards fro electrical grid protection higher than the self regulating industry standards. Under current regulations there is no goal to make the Texas grid withstand and recover from a catastrophic system wide event.

The Texas electrical grid is independent from two other major grids in the U.S. and is therefore able to protect itself independently from threats to and failures of the Eastern and Western grids.

In this clip Tom Glass and Senator Bob Hall explain why Texas’ electrical grid is unique. The Texas grid is independent from the two other major grid systems in the U.S. That means a failure of the other two doesn’t mean that Texas would necessarily be taken down in domino effect. If Texas protects it’s grid, it can do so independently from the federal government and other states.

Does race trump truth? In a confrontation between police and perpetrators, what is more important? Facts or skin color? When protests morph into riots, do we excuse bad behavior based on race? If we do, how are we ever going to end racism? Chloe Valdary, a student at the University of New Orleans, confronts these critical questions and offers a compelling answer.

Blogwrath: Friends Remember Mark Harding

Candle flame

As I reported earlier, Mark Harding passed away a few weeks ago. He was a remarkable Christian preacher and evangelist, who dedicated his life to spreading his uplifting faith. His compassion for the suffering of the Christians in many countries in the world helped him see things that few people were aware of in the mid-1990’s, specifically the danger of Muslim extremism. At the time not many knew or were interested in what happens to the few Christians in Sudan or Afghanistan, but Mark saw as his duty to be the messenger of that bad news and help the plight of those martyrs. He also worked on liberating the Muslims from the Koranic deception.

That work brought him into the vortex of religious politics and he became one of the first to experience the rage of Muslim fanaticism in Canada. His work with Muslims and the opposition of introducing daytime Muslim prayers at a Toronto school (in a secular education system, from which Christianity and Judaism have been kicked out long time ago) caused a legal clash – his position was labeled “hate speech” and he was convicted. Not many were aware of the problems he raised and he didn’t receive the support he needed. It is symptomatic that the people who stood by him in that difficult time were the Christians whom he defended – for example, Pakistani Christian churches paid his legal bills after the trial.

He also fought against the corruption of children through age-inappropriate sex education in the 1980’s (a problem we are facing again in Ontario). Mark was a great friend of Israel and worked against the demonization and boycott of the Jewish State. He organized demonstrations in support of businesses selling Israeli products (like his annual stand in front of the Hudson’s Bay Company store in downtown Toronto).

This is a new presentation that Usama Dakdok has put together. It was delivered on April 13th, 2013. It does contain some information from old videos but has been updated to reflect today’s issues.

Hello,

My name is Usama Dakdok. I was born in Egypt and I grew up in a Christian home. But as I grew up in school in Egypt, a government school, and through all these years that I was in school, I learned about Islam, like every other student in a Muslim country. I came to America in 1992, and I found out that there were many Muslims in America. I said, “What a great ministry for me to do right here.” With all the knowledge that I have about Islam, I can reach out to the Muslim people with the word of Jesus Christ. That is why we began The Straight Way of Grace Ministry. Please look around my website. There are many resources available to you as a Muslim to get to know the Lord, Jesus Christ, better. You who may want to learn more about the religion of Islam and how you might reach out to those in this faith with the word of our Savior. Please contact us if you would like us to personally visit your church or organization and share our good news!

News.com.au has the story, via Andrew Bolt:

A YOUNG Australian doctor has appeared in an Islamic State video urging other medical professionals to travel to the Islamic State stronghold of Raqqa in Syria to join the jihad against the west.

The stylish promotional IS video has not been verified… The video introduces the “ISHS” — or IS Health Service — and appears to have been filmed in Raqqa in the Raqqa General Hospital.

The Australian doctor introduces himself as Abu Yusuf and says he travelled to Raqqa from Australia to offer his medical services as part of his “jihad for Islam”….

“My name is Abu Yusuf. I’m one of the medical team here. I came from Australia to the Islamic State to live under the khalifah…”

Predictably, leftists are trying to shut down this story:

Sheik: KAMLEH’S JIHAD MAY BE “HIS OWN WAY OF ATONING FOR HIS BEHAVIOUR”.

Dr Kamleh was by all accounts a good Muslim and reconnected with his faith. But our bleeding hearts don’t see it that way.

Lets not endanger our jihad quack:

Jihadi medic Tareq Kamleh ‘may die because of leaks’

Sweet Cakes: Aaron and Melissa Klein
Sweet Cakes: Aaron and Melissa Klein

GOPUSA has the story:

Homosexual activists have forced a website to shut down an online crowdfunding campaign for a Christian couple facing a possible fine for declining to provide a wedding cake in 2013 for a same-sex “wedding.”

In less than eight hours, the GoFundMe page for Aaron and Melissa Klein – owners of “Sweet Cakes by Melissa” – had raised in excess of $109,000 to help them offset a damages award of $135,000 proposed Friday by the Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industries. In February, the Christian couple had been found guilty of violating the state’s “anti-discrimination” law.

But on Saturday – after receiving complaints from advocates for “gay rights” – GoFundMe pulled the page, claiming that specific campaign violated its own policy, which prohibits raising funds “in defense of formal charges of heinous crimes, including violent, hateful, or sexual acts.”

Abbot Tryphon: The Morning Offering

From Abbot Tryphon’s blog:

Great Hieromartyr Gregory pray to God for us

In 1821, on Pascha, the Feast of Feasts, the Resurrection of Christ, the Moslem Sultan, Mahmud II, ordered the murder of the Oecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople, Gregory V, First Among Equals of the Bishops of the Orthodox Church, in reprisal for the Greek uprising, on the mainland, against their Moslem captors.

This barbaric act was simply incomprehensible in its crude enactment. The Patriarch, 74 years of age, was arrested at the Paschal Liturgy, on the night of April 10, where he was celebrating the service with eight Hierarchs and the clergy and Faithful.

Still dressed in his vestments, he was taken by the Turkish Sultan’s officers and hanged at the gate of the Patriarchal compound, after they offered him freedom in exchange for his conversion to their religion, which he of course refused.

Here he was left hanging for three days, as the Moslem population passed by hurling insults at him. Afterwards, his body was dragged through the streets of Constantinople and thrown into the Bosphorus.

When news of this heinous act reached the West, the press was incredulous and shocked. Only today, as we see Islamic extremism once again raise its ugly head, has the West come to realize fully the savagery, bestiality, and depravity of such extremism.

Rescued from the sea, St. Gregory’s body was taken to Odessa, in Ukraine, where he was solemnly buried as a Martyr. His Relics were later moved to the Metropolitan Cathedral of Athens, where they are found to this day.

The sad truth is that we are seeing the resurrection of this Islamic barbarism, and the number of Christian martyrs is increasing on a daily basis. Most Western politicians refuse to admit this has anything to do with Islam, and dismiss it simply as a form of extremism. This Friday, April 24th, we will be observing the 100th Anniversary of the Armenian Genocide, while the Turkish government continues to tell the world this terrible extermination of one and a half million Armenian Christians, never happened.

With love in Christ,
Abbot Tryphon

Voltaren (flurbiprofen) topical gel
This medication is toxic to cats, dogs, and other pets.

NPR has the story:

Veterinarians have long warned that pain medications like ibuprofen are toxic to pets. And it now looks like merely using a pain relief cream can put cats at risk.

That’s what happened in two households, according to a report issued Friday by the Food and Drug Administration. Two cats in one household developed kidney failure and recovered with attention from a veterinarian. But in a second household, three cats died.

When the veterinarians performed necropsies on the three dead cats, they found toxic levels of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, or NSAIDs. NSAIDs include ibuprofen, like Advil and Motrin, and naproxen, which is in Aleve.

Ibuprofen is the most common drug that pets eat, according to the American Veterinary Medical Association, perhaps since many of the pills are candy-coated. In pets, the drugs can cause stomach or intestinal ulcers and kidney failure.

But these cats died by flurbiprofen, another NSAID. In the case of its most recent victims, the cat owner applied a lotion or cream containing flurbiprofen to treat muscle or arthritis pain. And it’s highly unusual for a cat to show up at the vet’s office; usually it’s the dogs that get into trouble from exposure to NSAIDs.
[…]
This isn’t an animal mistreatment issue — none of the cats died because owners were applying their medications to the cats. The owners reported using the product on their necks or feet, and somehow the animals were exposed. The third cat died after the owner had stopped using the medication.

Read it all.

IHeartCats suggests the following:

…The FDA recommends that people who use topical medications containing flurbiprofen take care to prevent their pets from being exposed to them, even in ways that may seem unlikely to cause problems.

  • Store all medications safely out of the reach of pets.
  • Safely discard or clean any cloth or applicator that may retain medication and avoid leaving any residues of the medication on clothing, carpeting or furniture.
  • Consult your health care provider on whether it is appropriate to cover the treated area.
  • If you are using topical medications containing flurbiprofen and your pet becomes exposed, bathe or clean your pet as thoroughly as possible and consult a veterinarian.
  • If your pet shows signs such as lethargy, lack of appetite, vomiting, or other illness, seek veterinary care for your pet and be sure to provide the details of the exposure.
  • Understand that, although the FDA has not received reports of dogs or other pets becoming sick in relation to the use of topical pain medications containing flurbiprofen, these animals may also be vulnerable to NSAID toxicity after being exposed to these medications.

Veterinarians who have patients who show signs of NSAID toxicity should ask whether anyone in the household has used topical pain medications containing flurbiprofen.

Health care providers who prescribe topical pain medications containing flurbiprofen and pharmacists who fill these prescriptions should advise patients with pets to take care to prevent exposure of the pet to the medication.

The FDA urges pet owners and veterinarians to report any adverse events to the FDA.

Boston Globe has the story:

Tamar Hajian was raised on her grandparents’ memories of the mass killings of Armenians during World War I, the executions and death marches that Armenians call the “great crime.” Her grandmother went door-to-door in search of orphans, making the sign of the cross in a show of kinship.

“This is so embedded in you growing up,” said Hajian, a retired attorney who lives in Needham.

Personal accounts of what is widely known as the Armenian Genocide have been passed through the generations, relatives say. This week, Armenians will mark the centennial of the genocide, gathering to remember the 1.5 million victims and renewing calls for formal acknowledgment by the Turkish government that the killings were a crime.

In the Boston area, home to the country’s second-largest Armenian community, with some 30,000 residents, the anniversary at once sharpens long-held grief while bringing renewed hope for accountability and resolution.

The Turkish government has long denied that a genocide took place, saying the death toll is exaggerated and that many Armenians died from starvation or disease amid the upheaval of the war. But the consensus of historians is that the Turkish government set out to eliminate the Armenian Christian minority, and that three out of four Armenians living in the Ottoman Empire were killed.

Descendants of Armenian survivors describe the lack of universal recognition as an open wound, a lingering outrage that denies justice and healing, even a century on. As they pay tribute to the victims and honor the legacy of Armenian survivors who were driven from their homeland, they remain hopeful that Turkey will one day accept responsibility for its crimes, and that the massacres will one day be called by their rightful name.

“Turkey cannot continue to create the myth that nothing happened,” Hajian said.

‘It’s a wound that’s not been healed. The world is different now, and Turkey should be held accountable.’

When World War I broke out, Turkish leaders targeted the Christian Armenian population under the pretext that they would cooperate with the Russian enemy.

Earlier this month, Pope Francis described the mass killings as the “first genocide of the 20th century” and called for international acknowledgment. “Concealing or denying evil is like allowing a wound to keep bleeding without bandaging it,” he said.

ANCA: President Obama not to recognize Armenian genocide

WASHINGTON, DC – President Obama’s Chief of Staff Denis McDonough and Deputy National Security Advisor Ben Rhodes confirmed to Armenian American leaders, during a White House meeting this afternoon, that the President has chosen against recognizing the Armenian Genocide in his April 24th statement marking the worldwide centennial of this crime.

“President Obama’s surrender to Turkey represents a national disgrace. It is, very simply, a betrayal of truth, a betrayal of trust,” said ANCA Chairman Ken Hachikian.

“With the world’s attention drawn this April 24th to worldwide Armenian Genocide Centennial commemorations, President Obama will, tragically, use the moral standing of our nation not to defend the truth, but rather to enforce of a foreign power’s gag-rule. He has effectively outsourced America’s policy on the Armenian Genocide to Recep Erdogan,” said Hachikian.

Following the meeting, the White House put out a read out for the discussion, the full text of which is provided below.

Prior to his election to the oval office, President Obama was clear and unequivocal in promising to properly characterize Ottoman Turkey’s murder of over 1.5 million Armenian men, women and children between 1915 and 1923 as genocide. In a January 19, 2008, statement he wrote: “The facts are undeniable. An official policy that calls on diplomats to distort the historical facts is an untenable policy. As a senator, I strongly support passage of the Armenian Genocide Resolution (H.Res.106 and S.Res.106), and as President I will recognize the Armenian Genocide.”

Rep. Patrick Murphy

Frontpage has the story:

Patrick Murphy, United States Representative from Florida, has announced his intention to run for United States Senate. If recent history provides any indication of what to expect, Murphy will elicit help from radical Muslims to do so. But will he sell his votes for the help?

The 2013 annual fundraising banquet for Emerge USA featured a victory speech by then-newly elected US Representative Patrick Murphy, a Democrat who had recently defeated the Republican incumbent Allen West in a highly contested race.

This was indeed seen as a huge victory for Emerge, as the group considered Allen West an adversary to organizations such as itself, organizations with ties to terrorism and Islamic extremism. In its 2012 annual report, Emerge explicitly took credit for West’s loss: “EMERGE USA PAC rallied our communities to defeat the radical former Congressman Allen West.”

Murphy no doubt acknowledged Emerge’s involvement, when he stated at the banquet, “I am very proud of the diverse coalition that led me to victory. The Muslim, Arab and South Asian American communities in Florida and nationally were an instrumental part of our team for the past 18 months.”

If Emerge is part of Patrick Murphy’s team, then Patrick Murphy’s team is dangerous. Emerge USA is not the patriotic group its name allows it to pretend to be.

In December 2014, Emerge co-sponsored an event for the Muslim Students Association (MSA) with a number of organizations which have been associated with Hamas and/or al-Qaeda financing, including the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), ICNA Relief, and Islamic Relief (IR).

In May 2006, Israel labeled Islamic Relief a front for Hamas after arresting the group’s Gaza program manager, Ayaz Ali, for providing “funds and assistance to various Hamas institutions and organizations.” Ali admitted that he had cooperated with local Hamas operatives. In 1999, IR collected and sent more than $6 million to Chechen rebels with ties to al-Qaeda. The same year, IR received $50,000 from Human Concern International (HCI), a charity that the U.S. Department of Treasury described as a “Bin Laden front.”

During the banquet, Congressman Murphy received a “Public Service Award”from two of Emerge’s leaders, Khurrum Wahid and Saif Ishoof.

The Co-Chairman of Emerge is Khurrum Basir Wahid. Wahid, a South Florida attorney, has represented a number of high-profile terrorists. They include: Rafiq Sabir, who received a 25 year prison sentence for conspiring to provide material support to al-Qaeda; Ahmed Omar Abu Ali, who was given a life sentence for being a member of al-Qaeda and for plotting to assassinate President George W. Bush; and Palestinian Islamic Jihad leader Sami al-Arian.

The home page of the website of Wahid’s law firm, wvmlawfirm.com, is still pushing the case of Wahid’s client, Hafiz Khan, the Miami imam who shipped tens of thousands of dollars to the Taliban for the express purpose of murdering American troops overseas. It has been two years since Khan was convicted, and Wahid continues to ask for financial assistance for Khan’s case.

According to the Miami New Times, Wahid himself was placed on a federal terrorist watch list in 2011.

None of this may trouble Congressman Murphy, as he thanked Wahid, at the banquet, for his support.

Saif Yamani Ishoof is a founding director of Emerge. Prior to getting involved with the group, Ishoof was the rally organizer and contact for the extreme anti-Israel group, March for Justice. While with March for Justice, Ishoof organized an event which labeled then-Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon “the world’s longest standing terrorist.”

Today, Ishoof is a director of Nur-Ul-Islam Academy, a Muslim children’s school located in Cooper City, Florida whose former Vice President was Hamas fundraiser Raed Awad. According to corporation documents, Ishoof was officially named a director of the school in January 2008, at a time when the home page of the Nur-Ul-Islam website contained links to violent, anti-Semitic and anti-Christian material, including having a link to islamway.com, a website that encouraged its viewers to donate to Hamas.

Inquisitr has the story: Bobcat Attacks Shark: Photographer Captures Stunning Scene On Florida Beach

A lucky photographer managed to capture a startling interaction between two predators in Florida, as he spied a bobcat pouncing into the surf after a shark, before it pulled the thrashing fish out of the water.

The unusual image was captured on Monday at Sebastian Inlet State Park in Vero Beach, according to First Coast News. Photographer John Bailey was walking along the surf in the evening when he spied the bobcat intently focused on something in the water. Upon closer inspection, Bailey was able to determine that the bobcat was watching a four-foot-long shark as it preyed upon smaller fish in the shallows.

What happened next was nothing short of astonishing, according to the photographer. With little warning, the bobcat sprang into the sea, grabbing the shark in its jaws and pulling the struggling predator ashore. The bobcat’s victory was short lived, however, as Bailey believes he startled the animal, causing it to drop the shark on the sand and retreat into a nearby forest.

Since its initial publication in 1997, “What Islam Is All About” has been a best-selling English language Islamic school text for junior high level American students. The author, Yahiya Emerick, is an American-born convert to Islam. He is widely regarded as a leading Islamic childrens educator, and he also wrote The Complete Idiots Guide to Understanding Islam. The textbook is distributed by Noorart Publishing of Richardson, Texas. In short, this is a mainstream American-made textbook, written in clear standard American English, for the purpose of introducing Muslim-American children to the religion of Islam.

You may be shocked to find out what mainstream Muslim-American children are actually being taught.
