Similar to France, Bulgaria's also banning Islamic veils (Hat tip: Jihad Watch):
BULGARIA has banned the burka – and warned those who flout the law will be fined £662 and lose their benefits.

Bulgaria’s parliament banned the wearing of face veils on Friday in a bid to boost security in the wake of Islamist militant attacks in Europe.

The new “burqa ban” law, which had been driven by the nationalist Patriotic Front coalition, comes after France, the Netherlands and Belgium banned the wearing of burqas or niqabs in public.

The ban will not only apply to Bulgarian citizens but also to anyone temporarily in the country.

The new law states that clothing that conceals the face may not be worn in the institutions of Bulgaria’s central and local administrations, schools, cultural institutions, and places of public recreation, sports and communications.

Krasimir Velchev, a senior lawmaker for the ruling GERB, said: “The law is not directed against religious communities and is not repressive.

“We made a very good law for the safety of our children.”
Any religion that wants to be seen as positive wouldn't call for concealing - and denying - one's identity, nor for risking health by covering the body in a way that could lead to osteoporosis.


The NY Observer (via Breitbart) tells of a new startup business called Blockstack that's putting together a new internet frequency. One that can't be censored:
The Blockstack approach should make shutting down the internet or blocking a particular site considerably more challenging. Domain registration is turned over to a blockchain (right now, that’s the original bitcoin blockchain), and no private interest needs to be involved. There’s no single point to tell computers where to look to find a site. There’s lots of places, and the more people use it, the more places there will be. If one path to information is shut down, another can found.
This is an interesting idea, just what we needed if we're worried about ICANN as it stands now. If they're planning alternate businesses for setting up root zone programs, it's just what I was thinking of myself, and this proves I'm not the only one who thought of the possibilities. I congratulate the company for thinking of this, since IMO, nobody should have to rely on just one single business for setting up domains and such. There does need to be competition.

It was discovered 6 days ago that a whole scene on the Nice beach where a Muslim woman was confronted by police for wearing a burkini without permission was all a deliberate setup:
“Selectively edited” Footage of a young Muslim woman wearing a so-called Burkini being threatened on a French beach was a deliberate set-up for the benefit of a Channel Seven Australia television crew, according to revelations in the Australian press.

Newspapers around the world sympathetically reported the plight of 23-year-old Australian Muslim university student Zeynab Alshelh this week after images emerged which purported to show her being harrassed on a French beach.

British titles including the Daily Telegraph, Sun, BBC, Mirror, and others reported Ms. Alshelh had been “chased off” the beach, while she and her family were “met with abuse”.

Yet calls for the young Muslim activist to issue an apology to France for her deliberately provocative stunt are growing after claims that the anger of those on the beach wasn’t directed at the woman’s attire — but at the presence of television cameras, in clear breach of French privacy laws.

The Daily Mail Australia reports the remarks of an eye witness to the confrontation, who said: “The man on the video who said, ‘You turn around and you leave’, was my uncle. He never asked these three people to leave the beach. He spoke to the camera because he was asking the cameraman to leave.

“There were children on the beach, including our own, and we didn’t want them to be filmed”
So it was all just what some could describe as a provocation. For that, both the Muslim activist and the TV channel she worked with owe an apology for a stunt that was obviously intended to undermine France, after all the horrific terrorist attacks they've had to endure. It's absolutely repulsive how they're being abused much like Israel is, all by people who don't have a care in the world about the well being of innocents trying to lead quiet and productive lives. I strongly recommend that Australia's Channel 7 be boycotted for stooping so low.


Obama just recently tried to veto a bill that would allow the families of terrorism victims to sue Saudi Arabia for harboring any and all jihadists who planned the attacks. Fortunately, this time, even the Democrats voted to override his veto and ensure the bill could stand:
The House and Senate voted Wednesday to reject President Obama's veto of legislation allowing lawsuits against foreign sponsors of terrorism — the first successful override of a presidential veto since Obama took office.

The president had vetoed the legislation Friday because he said the bill — known as the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act, or JASTA — would infringe on the president’s ability to conduct foreign policy. It was the 12th veto of his presidency.

But after an intense push by 9/11 survivors and families of victims who want to sue Saudi Arabia based on claims the country played a role in the 2001 terror attacks, even Obama’s Democratic allies on Capitol Hill voted to override his veto.

The House voted 348-77, well above the two-thirds majority needed. The final vote tally in the Senate was 97-1. Minority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., cast the lone dissenting vote.

"In our polarized politics of today, this is pretty much close to a miraculous occurrence," Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, said. Democrats and Republicans in both chambers agreed, he said, that the bill "gives the victims of the terrorist attack on our own soil an opportunity to seek the justice they deserve."
I'm glad both Republicans and Democrats alike supported this move (with the exception of Reid, who's a disgrace if he couldn't). The 9-11 Families fought very hard for justice, and it's about time they were given the respect they deserve, for fighting for the honor of their beloved relatives.

The override enraged the Saudis, who unsurprisingly have no sympathy for 9-11 Families or why they're seeking compensation. If the Saudis don't want to lead relations with the US anymore, so be it. We shouldn't be relying on oil or anything else coming from such an awful country.

The effort in Congress to stop the ICANN transfer may not have succeeded, but 4 states starting with Texas are now joining the battle for keeping the internet free and safe, and have filed a lawsuit:
Three conservative states are suing the Obama administration in an attempt to block the U.S. government from ceding oversight of some of the internet’s core systems.

The attorneys general of Texas, Oklahoma and Arizona on Thursday asked a federal court in Galveston, Texas, to keep the Commerce Department from relinquishing oversight of ICANN, or the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers.

The internet relies on the “domain name” system. That includes directories helping computers on the network send data. ICANN has overseen the directories since 1998.

Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and others opposed the transition, which was approved by Congress in a temporary spending bill keeping the government running. The lawsuit says ceding control of ICANN violates the Property Clause of U.S. Constitution, which restricts giving away government property.
I wish Texas and the others good luck with this suit, and it's good they're concerned, because local security is just as important as national, and they have every right to be concerned on those grounds too.

Joel Pollak and Frank Gaffney both note that it's just three days left till Obama could surrender away the internet to unreliable sources and form a disaster for everybody in electronics. It remains to be seen if Congress will act to prevent the disaster or not. And you can very well say that if the GOP reps won't do it, it'll be to their discredit for enabling something that could easily destroy a lot of hard work to make this a better world.

So what's it going to be with Congress? Are they going to prove themselves or not?

The Buddhist monk says Syrians should go home and rebuild their country (Hat tip: Truth Revolt):
"The main effort should go to help their own country bring peace, in Syria, Libya or even Afghanistan. Generally the people always feel, 'Oh, one day we return'," the Dalai Lama told Morgan. "[They] should rebuild their own country."
He's throughly correct. Yet it's not really their own country the Syrian interlopers in Europe care about, but their Religion of Rape. That's what motivates a lot of them to go turn other countries into living hells.

A gunman murdered 4 women and a man at a Burlington mall in Washington. It turns out he's of Turkish background, and mostly like an Islamofascist:
Police have identified the alleged shooter in the Burlington mall attack as Arcan Cetin, 20, of Oak Harbor, Washington. Multiple reports indicate that Cetin was an immigrant from Turkey — not a citizen, but a legal permanent resident of the United States.

Cetin allegedly killed four women and one man at the Cascade Mall on Friday evening. Local NBC News affiliate KING-5 reports that he used three guns in the attack, all of which had been legally purchased by Cetin’s father, and which he stole.
He even signaled he supports Hillary Clinton and additional reports indicate he's a Muslim. And Rep. Michael McCaul of the homeland security committee says there's a very possible chance this was an Islamic terror attack. Even in a state like Washington, it's getting very dangerous.
