It would be an interesting experiment in irony impairment

ISIS Calls For Attacks On West During Ramadan - “Ramadan, the month of conquest and jihad.”

Source: Huffington Post

A new message purporting to come from the spokesman of Islamic State calls on followers to launch attacks on the United States and Europe during the Islamic holy month of Ramadan, which begins in early June.

“Ramadan, the month of conquest and jihad. Get prepared, be ready ... to make it a month of calamity everywhere for the non-believers ... especially for the fighters and supporters of the caliphate in Europe and America,” said the message, suggesting attacks on military and civilian targets.

The authenticity of the audio clip, purporting to be from Abu Muhammad al-Adnani and distributed on Saturday by Twitter accounts that usually publish Islamic State statements, could not be verified.

“The smallest action you do in their heartland is better and more enduring to us than what you would if you were with us. If one of you hoped to reach the Islamic State, we wish we were in your place to punish the Crusaders day and night,” Adnani said.

The militant group, which seeks to establish a caliphate across the Middle East and beyond, has claimed deadly attacks over the past year on civilians in France, Belgium and the United States.

Bernie Sanders Says Debbie Wasserman Schultz Will Be Gone From DNC If He’s President

Source: Huffington Post

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) went all in on Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.), the head of the Democratic National Committee, on Saturday, saying he supports a primary challenger in her re-election bid for her House seat and would remove her from the DNC if elected president.

Sanders has repeatedly accused the DNC, which is neutral in the Democratic primary, of favoring his rival, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

He told CNN’s Jake Tapper he “clearly” favors the DNC head’s opponent, law professor Tim Canova.

“His views are much closer to mine than Wasserman Schultz’s,” the senator said in an interview that will air Sunday on “State of the Union.”

“With all due respect to the current chairperson, if elected president, she would not be reappointed to be chair of the DNC.”

Wasserman Schultz criticized Sanders this week after his supporters unleashed brutal sexist attacks on the head of the Nevada Democratic party.

Open Letter to Hillary: Great effort, but its time to withdraw and support The Bern

Let me explain.

Hillary has raised a lot of money and supporters, but the upcoming election is too important to lose to the republicans led by Trump (but the argument would be the same regardless of which horrible republican runs the party). The next President is going to fill at least 2 supreme court positions, have to lead on climate change, deal with increasingly deadly attacks from terrorists, and deal with a crumbling world, and many other challenges. The middle class is being decimated and if a republican wins, it will be further eroded as more wealth is transferred to trump and his friends. A republican will also erode the benefits of Obamacare, and instead of fixing flaws and bringing in universal healthcare, the republicans are going to roll it back. Forget about the progressive angle of recreational drugs and even medical marijuana.

I may not get everything from Bernie, but he's going to do 85-90% of what I'd like and most importantly, we will not have a republican in office.

The important thing for me is to ensure we don't lose the next election and that we immediately start focusing our attention and money in defeating the republican candidate. So Hillary, for the good of the progressive left, for liberals, for everything you have purportedly fought for in your life, do not further divide our party - please resign. Endorse Bernie, but at the very least don't hurt him anymore.

Let's do the math. You're still about 70 pledged delegates away from winning the nomination. It's worse if you remove the super delegates from the picture. And you're only three million votes ahead of Bernie. With your limited foreign and government experience you may not be able to get things done.

So for the good of everything you have ever felt is important. Please withdraw and support your opponent (or don't, but stop trying to hurt the Democrats). Did I say Open Letter to Hillary? Sorry, I meant Bernie.
