Monday Post

Back to the grind...

Wasn't I saying this?

President Obama said that ISIS is not "an existential threat to us" in a news conference today in Argentina ....

Yes, about that:

Pakistan's prime minister on Monday vowed to eliminate perpetrators of terror attacks such as the massive suicide bombing that targeted Christians gathered for Easter the previous day in the eastern city of Lahore, killing 70 people.

An Indian Catholic priest who was believed abducted by ISIS-linked terrorists weeks ago was reportedly crucified on Good Friday.

There has been no official confirmation of the heinous execution, other than reports from the Mother Teresa Sisters in the Yemeni capital Aden, as reported in Austrian media.
Four gunmen allegedly kidnapped Father Tom Uzhunnalil, 56, from a retirement home in early March in southern Yemen.

The gunmen posed as relatives of one of the retirement home residents then killed at least 16 people, including nuns, before taking the priest hostage.

No one claimed responsibility for the assault, but officials who spoke to media said the jihadists are likely linked to ISIS.

The Islamist-in-Chief may wish fervently to make others believe that ISIS, the Taliban and all other incarnations of Islamist terror are not an existential threat but the deceased and maimed feel otherwise.

He'll be released in no time:

The RCMP has made a “preventive” arrest of an Ontario man for the first time under the new provisions of the Fear of Terrorism measure in the Criminal Code.

Kevin Omar Mohamed, 23, was taken into custody by police on Friday and charged with possession and concealment of a weapon — a knife, according to his lawyer, Anser Farooq — but has not been charged with any terrorism-related offences. ...

This type of arrest was made possible due to last year’s changes to the Criminal Code, the Canadian Security Intelligence Service Act and the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act under Bill C-51 — introduced by the Conservative government of Stephen Harper. Bill C-51 passed into law early May 2015.

I'm not a military expert and I never said I was but surely bullets should be in guns of soldiers and police assigned to protect synagogues from those restive peaceful masses:

Rabbi Menachem Hadad of Brussels’ Shomre Hadas haredi Orthodox community said that soldiers who were posted outside a synagogue and the city’s Chabad House following the slaying of four Jews in Brussels’ Jewish Museum of Belgium in 2014 told him that for months, they used to guard the area with no bullets in their rifles. “It was just a show."

If there is ever a zombie apocalypse, these people should be tripped:

Last Monday morning, students at Emory University here in Atlanta were emotionally triggered by messages scrawled in chalk throughout the campus. The messages were so horrifying and terrifying that by the afternoon a gaggle of 40 or so students stormed the Administration Building and began desperately chanting:
You are not listening! Come speak to us, we are in pain!...We have nothing to lose but our chains.
What exactly had sent them into such blind, flailing, fearful fury? Well, it wasn’t exactly Kristallnacht, but let’s call it “The Chalkening”: A vandal had scrawled “TRUMP 2016” on signs and stairs and walkways throughout this tony campus where parents waste a quarter-million dollars to send their progeny for a four-year course in how to be a soft-boiled ovum or a walking mangina.
A blogger for claimed that numerous reports of students’ hysterical reactions to The Chalkening were “MOSTLY FALSE,” but I’ll provide some direct quotes from the quivering pupils themselves and let you decide: ...

“I’m supposed to feel comfortable and safe [here]. But this man [Trump] is being supported by students on our campus and our administration shows that they, by their silence, support it as well….I don’t deserve to feel afraid at my school.”

Who thought a sign could be a catalyst for such unfounded fear?

Having been sheltered from their infancy and whipped into a paranoid frenzy since their helmeted bike-riding days, these pansies will only serve to slow one down during a catastrophic breakdown of society, something they probably helped start.

That can't be allowed to happen.

Save us, Rick!

Never let an inflammatory yet imaginary crisis go to waste:

The ongoing protest in front of Toronto police headquarters expanded on Saturday — closing off College Street for much of the day as demonstrators continued to call for charges against the police officer who shot and killed Andrew Loku.

Speaking of crisis:

Doctors dispatched to a northern Ontario reserve to treat children with skin conditions say remote communities are dealing with an ongoing medical crisis, the result of a shortage of medical services.

I lived in a northern community some time ago. Kids always had skin conditions because they were dirty, their homes were kept in disrepair and any clinic that could treat them was broken into.

If urban-dwelling Canadians can't get medical care that they have already paid for, why should money be wasted on people who live in the middle of nowhere and won't appreciate tax-funded succour?

And now, animals who love Easter:
