Overnight Open Thread (16 Jul 2016)

Heh. Facebook in hot water over poor workplace diversity excuse.


Southern Border

Admiral cites concern of Islamic radicalization in Latin America.

In a Southern Command briefing with Stars and Stripes this month, officials said the Islamic State group online publication Dabiq said that human-smuggling networks could be used to move its members, though there are no clear indication that fighters have successfully gained entry into the U.S. this way.

Well it only took a few years before someone used their drive a truck plan through a crowd of people so it's only a matter of time before they use these smuggling networks to gain entry. Of course, they don't have to go this route when we're just taking in 10's of thousands of refugees. We're letting them in through the front door.

The attack in Nice shows cars and trucks can be powerful weapons of terror. Ya think? I did find this little nugget down near the end of the article.

The driver was armed with a pistol and shot at police before he was killed. The ownership of firearms faces strict legal restrictions in France, though smugglers exploiting Europe's open borders have created a thriving black market for guns.

Question for open borders and gun control types. How are your gun control dreams going to work when you work to not secure our borders?

Gender Wars

Please make it stop. This is beyond ridiculous. Connecticut officially redefines all language dealing with "gender".

First of all, LGBT is no longer in play. Now you'll need to sign up for LGBTQI. (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Questioning & Intersex.) And there's plenty more beyond that.

Gayby: (Pronounced Gay-Bee) the child or children of a gay couple or individual.
Homophobic propaganda: propaganda based on homo-negativity and homophobia towards homosexual and sometimes other non-heterosexual people.
Gender gifted: a person whose capacity for gender expression exceeds the binary.


Gun Play

The Story of Bad Angel

Great story about a Bad Angel. In the image above, you can see an American flag in the kills section. This is the story of how that happened.

Military Fashion

A US military supplier has become one of the most sought-after brands in fashion. I think I might get one of the MA-1 Blood Chit flight jackets from A-1 Industries.

7-Layer Klondike Lasagna

Playboy Model

She should be charged. LAPD investigating after Playboy model allegedly posts body-shaming photo secretly shot at L.A. gym. Sounds like she's already claiming the Hillary defense.

Headline Follies

I guess you can't print accurate headlines if it offends someone. Memphis newspaper apologizes for accurate, yet 'racist' headline.

Turkish Cat

Heh. Cat becomes social media hero during coup in Turkey.

Cat Video
