One man has died and two others - believed to be his assailants - are in a serious condition after the ‘machete-style’ assault in Woolwich.
Police have confirmed that they are treating the incident as a terrorism and it is believed the killing was likely a politically-motivated Islamist attack.
A Whitehall source claimed the men were heard to shout ‘Allah Akbar’ as they attacked the victim in broad daylight.
“Mr. Issa, Mr. Cummings said we should run this like a courtroom and I agree with him. She just testified. She just waved her Fifth Amendment rights. You don’t get to tell your side of the story and then not be subjected to cross examination. That’s not the way it works. She waved her right to Fifth Amendment privilege by issuing an opening statement. She ought to stand here and answer our questions. (Applause)”
As a matter of law, a jury cannot use someone’s invocation of the Fifth Amendment as evidence of guilt. But we are not in a court of law — we are in the court of public opinion, as everyone in The White House knows, and Lerner wouldn’t be taking the Fifth unless she was in danger of prosecution … or otherwise had something to hide. No one chooses this course in a public matter of this kind unless the alternatives all are far worse for someone.
Depends on their views really.
And have you met conservative tumblr? We all have pretty independent ideas.
“never let a crisis go to waste” right.
JFC, could liberals please STOP making themselves look like the lords of low information voting by posting links to satire sites and thinking they are actual news?
Just stop, please. This is depressing. What the hell is wrong with you people!
Press these issues and press them hard. This is a “perfect storm” moment for conservatives.
The Tea Party needs to rear it’s head again and get to work on the 2014 elections, these scandals have put us in the perfect place to try to win the senate. If we get a 2/3s majority in the House and Senate we can do GREAT things.
Get to work people, do everything you can to support conservative challengers for Senate seats in your states (or other states if your state is not having to oust any liberals from office) and get them into office.
So an Obama administration official actually said that “Republicans say we’re either liars or idiots, we’re actually closer to idiots.” In reference to Benghazi.
Well at least they are being honest now.
The Obama Justice Department secretly tapped telephone records of Associated Press reporters for two months.
The AP reported:
The Justice Department secretly obtained two months of telephone records of reporters and editors for The Associated Press in what the news cooperative’s top executive called a “massive and unprecedented intrusion” into how news organizations gather the news.
The records obtained by the Justice Department listed outgoing calls for the work and personal phone numbers of individual reporters, general AP office numbers in New York, Washington and Hartford, Conn., and the main number for AP reporters in the House of Representatives press gallery, according to attorneys for the AP. It was not clear if the records also included incoming calls or the duration of calls.
In all, the government seized the records for more than 20 separate telephone lines assigned to AP and its journalists in April and May of 2012. The exact number of journalists who used the phone lines during that period is unknown but more than 100 journalists work in the offices where phone records were targeted, on a wide array of stories about government and other matters.
In a letter of protest sent to Attorney General Eric Holder on Monday, AP President and Chief Executive Officer Gary Pruitt said the government sought and obtained information far beyond anything that could be justified by any specific investigation. He demanded the return of the phone records and destruction of all copies.
“There can be no possible justification for such an overbroad collection of the telephone communications of The Associated Press and its reporters. These records potentially reveal communications with confidential sources across all of the newsgathering activities undertaken by the AP during a two-month period, provide a road map to AP’s newsgathering operations, and disclose information about AP’s activities and operations that the government has no conceivable right to know,” Pruitt said.
And yet the left still loves him despite violating the 1st, 2nd, 4th, and 5th, and more amendments of our constitution MULTIPLE TIMES
Let’s play a game called “How many fucking scandals can we uncover this weekend that conservatives were called conspiracy nuts for talking about 2 or 3 years earlier?”

If you want to watch the BlogCon2013 event that I’m at, here’s the link. Who knows, you might even see me at some point.
In an interview with Cleric Yousuf Badri the exchange between Badri and Said got extremely heated. For those of you who haven’t been keeping up, Yousuf Badri is a man who believes that beating women and children is good and proper (in fact if you oppose it then you are opposing Allah himself) and that women should know how to cook and clean for their husbands, not get an education.
Also he believes that there is no such thing as marital rape, because women don’t have the right to say no to their husbands.
So here’s a woman who finally stood up to him and told him where to stick his
insistence that she wear a hijab while interviewing him.
