Watch: Even Libs Will Be Stunned By Rosie O’Donnell’s Absurd Claims About U.S. And ISIS

Rosie O'Donnell

According to View co-host Rosie O’Donnell, the NFL is “propelling us to war,” thanks to a Muslim player being penalized on Monday Night Football.

Kansas City Chiefs’ safety Husain Abdullah intercepted a pass and returned it for a touchdown against the Patriots. Upon entering the endzone, he fell down and prayed. A flag was thrown for unsportsmanlike conduct. The NFL has since said that a flag shouldn’t have been thrown.

From one isolated accidental flag, O’Donnell believes that the NFL is a perpetuator of Muslim fear.

“Yes. I think as a nation we are. I think that, you know, it propels us to war,” she began. “You have to rally the country in order to bomb a country that did nothing to you and you need to rally them and so that’s what I think that was.”

The radical Islamic ISIS is doing nothing to us? Not beheading American journalists?

O’Donnell went on to say,

“Anyone is allowed to represent their joy in whatever way possible for two minutes on a football field and I think it’s anti-Muslim bias.”

Actually, a player is restricted in many ways from celebrating on the field, and players other than Abdullah are often penalized for it. In this instance, the NFL has since admitted that it was the wrong call.

Watch: Shocking ISIS Support In Unlikely Place Destroys Obama’s ‘ISIS Isn’t Islamic’ Claim

chant

A week after Algerian Jund al-Khalifa terrorists kidnapped and beheaded French tourist Hervé Gourdel, a video has surfaced on the Internet in which Moroccan soccer fans sing pro-ISIS chants.  The fans of the Raja Club Athletic from Casablanca, Morocco can be heard chanting: “ISIS! ISIS!” and “Let’s go on Jihad!” to the beat of a drum under stadium bleachers.

These soccer fans are missing the irony of supporting jihad and the brutal Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant that oppose Western sports, like soccer.

Watch: The NRA Just Slammed Michael Bloomberg With This New Ad

nracommercial

To fight back against former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s anti-gun reform campaign, the National Rifle Association (NRA) launched a multi-million dollar effort ahead of next month’s midterm election, labeling Bloomberg as an “elitist.”

The NRA, which has already spent over $10 million this election cycle, is going to paint Bloomberg as an “elitist.” The former three-term mayor leads the group Everytown for Gun Safety, an umbrella organization that advocates for gun control legislation and reform.

The group includes Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America and Mayors Against Illegal Guns, and endorsed a wide ranging list of U.S. Senators and members of Congress, including several in close races, such as those in North Carolina and Louisiana.

NRA spokesman Andrew Arulanandam labeled Bloomberg as the “ultimate hypocrite,” according to The Hill.

“We look at it as an opportunity to expose the real Mike Bloomberg to the American people.

“The American people will see he is the ultimate hypocrite who tries to ensure people don’t have the right to defend themselves, while he surrounds himself with armed security 24 hours a day.”

The Hill notes the NRA’s campaign puts a large emphasis on Colorado, where there is a close race for Governor and a nominally close race for the U.S. Senate. The NRA launched an ad Tuesday featuring Kimberly Weeks, a crime victim who tells of surviving two hours of “evil,” before telling Bloomberg in the ad:

“You do not have the right to tell me how to defend myself.”

Arulanandam cautions that the gun control lobby won’t go away quietly, according to The Hill:

“I think the gun control lobby has proven themselves very adept at exploiting tragedy to push their political agenda.

“It’s a misnomer or inaccurate for anyone to suggest that gun control is dead.”

101st Airborne Division Sent To Combat Ebola

The Pentagon recently announced that it will soon have 1,600 troops in West Africa to deal with Ebola, and that more than half of them will come from the storied 101st Airborne Division.

Pentagon spokesman Rear Admiral John Kirby said that “it’s not an armed threat,” but “just like any other threat, we take it very, very seriously.”

Kirby announced that a 700-strong headquarters unit from the 101st would head to Liberia to help combat the disease. A second group of 700 engineering troops are headed there to build treatment units for the infected. About 200 troops are already there.

Describing the mission of the US troops in West Africa, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Martin Dempsey said:

“We’re establishing command and control nodes, logistics hubs, training for health care workers, and providing engineering support. The protection of our men and women is my priority as we seek to help those in Africa and work together to stem the tide of this crisis.”

Rear Admiral John Kirby also warned that 3,000 US troops might not be enough to fight Ebola. He said: “They’ll come in waves. It could go higher than 3,000 troops eventually.”

What do you think? Should the 101st Airborne Division and other US troops be used to combat Ebola? Or is their use foolish, and should the fight against Ebola be left in the hands of medical professionals?

America’s Dirty Little Secret: Sex Trafficking Is Big Business

hannah

“For every 10 women rescued, there are 50 to 100 more women are brought in by the traffickers. Unfortunately, they’re not 18- or 20-year-olds anymore. They’re minors as young as 13 who are being trafficked. They’re little girls.”—25-year-old victim of trafficking

“Children are being targeted and sold for sex in America every day.”—John Ryan, National Center for Missing & Exploited Children

The mysterious disappearance of 18-year-old Hannah Graham (pictured above) on September 13, 2014 has become easy fodder for the media at a time when the news cycle is lagging. After all, how does a young woman just vanish without a trace, in the middle of the night, in a town that is routinely lauded for being the happiest place in America, not to mention one of the most beautiful?

Yet Graham is not the first girl to vanish in America without a trace—my hometown of Charlottesville, Va. has had five women go missing over the span of five years—and it is doubtful she will be the last. I say doubtful because America is in the grip of a highly profitable, highly organized, and highly sophisticated sex trafficking business that operates in towns large and small, raking in upwards of $9.5 billion a year in the U.S. alone by abducting and selling young girls for sex.

It is estimated that there are 100,000 to 150,000 under-aged sex workers in the U.S. The average age of girls who enter into street prostitution is between 12 and 14 years old, with some as young as 9 years old. This doesn’t include those who entered the “trade” as minors and have since come of age. Rarely do these girls enter into prostitution voluntarily. As one rescue organization estimated, an underaged prostitute might be raped by 6,000 men during a five-year period of servitude.

This is America’s dirty little secret.

You don’t hear much about domestic sex trafficking from the media or government officials; and yet it infects suburbs, cities, and towns across the nation. According to the FBI, sex trafficking is the fastest growing business in organized crime, the second most-lucrative commodity traded illegally after drugs and guns. It’s an industry that revolves around cheap sex on the fly, with young girls and women who are sold to 50 men each day for $25 apiece, while their handlers make $150,000 to $200,000 per child each year.

In order to avoid detection by police and cater to male buyers’ demand for sex with different women, pimps and the gangs and crime syndicates they work for have turned sex trafficking into a highly mobile enterprise, with trafficked girls, boys, and women constantly being moved from city to city, state to state, and country to country. The Baltimore-Washington area, referred to as The Circuit, with its I-95 corridor dotted with rest stops, bus stations, and truck stops, is a hub for the sex trade.

With a growing demand for sexual slavery and an endless supply of girls and women who can be targeted for abduction, this is not a problem that’s going away anytime soon. Young girls are particularly vulnerable, with 13 being the average age of those being trafficked. Yet as the head of a group that combats trafficking pointed out, “Let’s think about what average means. That means there are children younger than 13. That means 8-, 9-, 10-year-olds.”
