Some weeks ago she mentioned that based on her own personal irresponsible decisions that women who dress provocatively and get drunk need to shoulder the blame if they get raped.

Feminists were furious.
She’s not backing down:

Say what you want but this woman has seriously good pipes.

When pressed about taking partial responsibility for being sexually assaulted in her twenties, former Pretenders front woman Chrissie Hynde let loose on NPR’s David Greene on Tuesday.

Hynde spoke out against the idea of “rape culture,” back in August, while also stating she believes women who dress provocatively, and then get drunk should take some responsibility if they are then attacked and raped.

In her memoir, Reckless: My Life as a Pretender, the now 64-year-old recounted being sexually assaulted in the 1970s, and said she took “full responsibility” as she was on drugs at the time.

The comments, and Hynde’s unapologetic responses when promoting the book, have created controversy among those who say she is blaming victims of sexual assault, and not their attackers.

Greene pressed the rocker about the book excerpt during a Tuesday interview, which she clarified she is tired of talking about.

“There was one comment that you made in an interview about the book, in the Sunday Times of London: “If I’m walking around in my underwear and I’m drunk, who else’s fault can it be?” said Greene.

“So what are you getting at? Why are you asking me this?” Hynde responded.

She cut Greene off: “I don’t understand why there’s — You know what, I don’t care what a lot of people want. You know? I’d rather say, just don’t buy the f—king book, then, if I’ve offended someone. Don’t listen to my records. Cause I’m only telling you my story, I’m not here trying to advise anyone or tell anyone what to do or tell anyone what to think, and I’m not here as a spokesperson for anyone.”

“I’m just telling my story. So the fact that I’ve been — you know, it’s almost like a lynch mob,” said Hynde.

Of her band’s 1979 rock hit “Brass in Pocket,” which NPR referred to as “a song that empowers women,” the rocker said, ”It’s just a three-minute rock song. I don’t think it’s as loaded as that.”

“I’m not here to embolden anyone,” added Hynde.

Hynde has been taking on modern music’s feminist activists in recent months.

In Spetember, the singer said during an interview, “Maybe they’re [modern pop music icons] feminists on behalf of prostitutes — but they are no feminists on behalf of music, if they are selling their music by bumping and grinding and wearing their underwear in videos,” said Hynde.

“That’s a kind of feminism — but, you know, you’re a sex worker is what you are” she said. “I would say those women are responsible for a great deal of damage.”

The airman who, with two friends, tackled a jihadi on a French train was stabbed in Sacramento.

He’s in stable condition.

A video is purportedly out.

Of course, no info on who was on the video.

I’m betting that, given the cops said they don’t suspect terrorism that the attackers were not goat fornicators.

That does not mean they weren’t a bunch of Dinndoo Nuffins.


UPDATE: Bet may still be good given that two Asians are allegedly involved.  No word obn the other three yet.


Details are still trickling out about the incident, but the good news is that Spencer Stone, the United States airman who teamed up with two friends to tackle a jihadi gunman on a train bound for Paris in August, is reportedly in stable condition after suffering multiple stab wounds in Sacramento.

ABC News reports word from Defense Department officials that Stone was “apparently protecting a friend” when he was stabbed. A reporter for ABC News in Sacramento said she was told Stone was “leaving a downtown bar when a fight ensued.” The attack reported occurred at roughly 12:45 AM local time.

Stone was awarded a Purple Heart and for the stabbing wound he sustained in the course of subduing heavily armed gunman Ayout El-Khazzani aboard a French train in August, thwarting what could have been an incredibly bloody massacre. According to the Air Force Times, he was also awarded the Airman’s Medal, while France bestowed the Legion d’Honneur upon Stone and his friends Alek Skarlatos, of the Oregon National Guard, and Anthony Sadler, plus British tourist Chris Norman, for their roles in preventing the train attack.

Danger seems to be hanging over the train heroes.

After the recent shooting at Umpqua Communit College in Roseburg, Oregon, it was learned that Alek Skarlatos was supposed to be attending classes at the school on the day of the shooting, but had postponed his classes to appear on the television show “Dancing With the Stars.” He swiftly returned to Roseburg after the shooting, and dedicated his performance on the show to the community.

They’re passing out citizenship test flashcards… Spanish.

Immigrants looking to become naturalized U.S. citizens can now study for the civics portion of the test in Spanish, courtesy of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.

Aspiring citizens can find study sheets, flash cards and audio tools in Spanish at to help them prepare for the 100-question civics test, which must be taken in English. “Prepare for your naturalization test – take our interactive Quizzes in Spanish!” a separate October USCIS blog post promoting the material says.

Complete interactive tests in Spanish and other languages are on the way.

The Obama administration is in the midst of a massive push to market citizenship to immigrants and refugees ahead of the 2016 election. The White House Task Force on New Americans, created by executive order in 2014, is behind a series of new initiatives aimed at ensuring they have the tools, support and encouragement they need to apply for citizenship.

USCIS launched a Spanish Facebook page and a stand-alone Spanish blog in July. “USCIS is strengthening its commitment to the Spanish-speaking community,” said a statement announcing the launch.

The agency also recently partnered with a number of major cities, including New York and Boston, to promote citizenship. USCIS will provide training about the naturalization process to librarians and city officials, so they can help immigrants apply. Boston Public Library branches established “Citizenshp Corners” to ensure easy access to preparation materials.

USCIS told a Senate subcommittee in September its citizenship promotion efforts will help blunt the threat of homegrown terrorism.

Obama launched a multilingual public awareness campaign in September to encourage immigrants and refugees to sign up for citizenship and to build a volunteer support team by partnering with local communities.

“If you’re eligible, commit to becoming a citizen today,” Obama said in a video kicking off the campaign.

New efforts include public service announcements in digital and print media, an additional $10 million of grant money to be awarded to organizations that help immigrants obtain citizenship, and the commitment of 150 AmeriCorps volunteers to help communities build welcoming teams.

Neighbor flies drone over man’s property and seemingly coincidentally only as the man’s wife goes to ride her horses.

Man asks neighbor to stop.

Neighbor tells man to call cops.

When cops do nothing man shoots it down.

An Ascension Parish man hunting squirrels on his property Monday shot down a neighbor’s drone that had been flying over his home for several months, making his wife feel as though she was being watched.

Aaron Hernandez, the owner of the drone, which was outfitted with a camera, said Tuesday he was flying his $1,200 remote-controlled quadcopter, which he got as a Christmas present last year, at his father’s home in a rural area off La. 936 early Monday evening when his neighbor shot it, disabling it at first, leaving it hovering in the sky.

Hernandez said he ran over to his neighbor’s property, saying he wouldn’t fly the drone again, but the neighbor, Derek Vidrine, blasted it out of the sky.

Hernandez said he had his 7-year-old niece with him at the time and the incident frightened her. He called the Sheriff’s Office.

Vidrine said Hernandez has been flying the drone over his property for months.

Last week, he said, when his wife saw the drone flying above her, she rode her horse to the property line and told Hernandez to stop flying the machine over her property.

“He said, ‘Call the cops.’ We called the cops,” Vidrine said.

The sheriff’s deputy that answered the call asked Hernandez to stop flying it over the neighbor’s land, Vidrine said.

“Yesterday, he did it again,” Vidrine said Tuesday.

Vidrine was out hunting when he first saw the drone.

“It’s squirrel season. It was right there. I shot it,” Vidrine said.

“That’s where we’re at,” he added.

The complaints were the first about drones that the Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office has received, but deputies expect to get more in the future as drones become more common, Lt. Col. Bobby Webre said.

While there aren’t state laws regulating drone hobbyists, Webre said, there are FAA guidelines.

“(The FAA) seriously recommends getting permission from the property owner” if you want to fly a drone over their property, Webre said.

The FAA says to “use good common sense and respect people’s reasonable expectation of privacy,” he said.

Hernandez said he has enjoyed flying the drone — which he said has to be flown 200 feet or higher or else it will lose its signal and crash — to photograph the area.

The drone feeds images to his iPhone, he said, that can be viewed in real time or developed into pictures.

“For all of my neighbors, I blow the pictures up and give the pictures to them,” Hernandez said. “Do you know what it costs to pay someone to take an (aerial) picture of your house?”

He considers what happened to his drone to be a violation of federal law since the “FAA considers that an aircraft.”

Hernandez maintains no one owns the airspace and that the drone is so high up, “you can’t see people.”

Vidrine said he and his family first noticed the drone about four months ago when his wife’s aunt held a birthday party at his house for her grandchild.

“The drone was flying about 20 feet over our Slip ‘N Slide. It stayed there about an hour. We didn’t know what it was,” Vidrine said.

His wife began noticing that the drone would fly overhead when she was outdoors, he said.

“I let it slide again,” Vidrine said. “I thought maybe it was a little kid doing it.”

Then, he said, his wife, a horse owner, began noticing that the drone would fly overhead while she was outside practicing barrel racing.

“There are 25 acres out here (where the drone could go) and it would be 20 feet over her head,” Vidrine said.

At some point, Vidrine followed the drone through the woods to his property line and saw his neighbor with the control.

“I know he saw me coming. He ran inside,” Vidrine said.

Webre said the state Legislature passed two laws in recent years regulating drones, including one that allows farmers to use drones to photograph their crops, and the other restricts areas where drones can fly such as government buildings and industrial plants.

But Webre said that’s as far as the state has gone. “There’s no other state law regulating flying a hobby, recreational drone,” he said.

Simply incredible that there is no outrage from the femi-nazis on this story of an 8 year old girl raped by ISIS fighters.

No stories of N.O.W. protesting outside mosques demanding that Muslims who worship there stand up and denounce, publicly and loudly, what is going on in the name of THEIR religion.

And of course you’d get no such denouncement as they agree with it.

Last week I arrived back home to Iraqi Kurdistan, exhausted but proud of a small but real triumph over the Islamic State. Three women and two toddlers came back with me—five human beings just rescued from enslavement by ISIL. For over a year, they were abused, raped and traded fighter to fighter because of one reason: our Yazid religion. I am determined to save every last one of the more than 2,000 Yazidi women and girls still waiting to be freed.

They thought they were abandoned. Their ISIL captors told them that no one wanted them, in their shame and defilement, and that no one was looking for them. But I insist on reaching out to them through pleas on Arabic radio and TV. I give them my phone number, and tell them that we love them and we want them back. Some brave women hear these messages and contact us, and a rescue mission commences. I answer the phone every time, determined to do all that I can, but it is little, and it is not enough. I know there will always be another call, another Yazidi who is terrified and broken and in need of hope, as the world looks the other way

One of the women, clutching her two-year-old child, was so distraught. The child kept asking for her seven-year-old sister, who had been taken away from her mother and enrolled in a religious institution where she would be forced to convert to Islam. Her mother had had no choice but to escape without her, and she told me she feared the girl would be raped at the hands of the militants. We have evidence of the militants raping our girls as young as age eight.

For that brief time in August 2014, the United States launched airstrikes to halt the advance of ISIL after its troops took over a third of Iraq, saving the Yazidi people from total massacre by ISIL troops. But since then, we’ve been abandoned and forgotten by Washington and the rest of the international community. For every story of a girl who has been rescued, there’s another one about a girl who is still in captivity, where she is starved, raped, beaten and sold—often to “fellow” Iraqis. And 500,000 Yazidis, a full 90 percent of the indigenous Yazidi population, are in displaced persons’ camps, living in abject misery and isolation with less than minimal sustenance. We languish in these camps, live without income, and without food, medicine or even shelter durable enough to keep the rain out. As long as ISIL remains intent on wiping my people off the map; and as long as the Iraqi and KRG governments continues to see Yazidis as less than second-class citizens, unworthy of significant aid and attention, these horrors will continue.

They are proposing a ban on citizenship to foreigners citing a failure of multi-culti.

Gee! We could have told them that 20 years ago.

One of the first things they need to do is deport all Muslims.

The immigration ministry will be one of the most legislatively busy in Denmark this parliament, with 17 legal changes put forward to make it tougher for foreigners to get citizenship.

While many of the new laws proposed may seem harsh, they have been formulated with the best interests of the nation at heart. Heavy emphasis is now placed on the ability of foreigners to integrate and contribute in Danish society, giving hope to fellow Europeans but casting doubt on the status of the hundreds of thousands of migrants and refugees moving up through Europe from Africa and the East.

Speaking at the opening of parliament in Copenhagen yesterday, Prime Minister Lars Løkke Rasmussen outlined how up until this point, integration had been allowed to utterly fail in Denmark. He told the chamber: “We need to speak openly about the fact that there is a difference between being a refugee and being an economic migrant. We can never cope with a mass migration that is borne upon the desire for a better life, regardless of how understandable that desire is”.

“Thus far, integration has failed. Of all the immigrants from non-Western countries, not even a half are employed. Even though many have been here for 10, 20 or 30 years. It is deeply worrying”. reports the Danish PM also used his speech to announce a new referendum, giving Danes a say on whether the nation signs up to the European Union’s common asylum and immigration policies. Up until now the nation has opted out of compulsory resettlement of refugees, and the announcement is an attempt by the right-wing government to put the matter to bed permanently.

The policy document put out by the Ministry for Immigration, Integration and Housing sets out a number of further areas where the government will be tightening up controls. One of the most significant changes will be to family reunification rules, which allow a single migrant, once settled to apply to have the rest of their family join them – receiving automatic citizenships in the process. Many European nations have such legislation, including Sweden and Germany, which has led to accusations that families abroad send the most vulnerable, and consequently likely to receive asylum, member to Europe as a sort of grappling hook.

The new rules will mean foreigners whose families are less likely to be able to integrate into Danish society will be less likely to receive family reunifications, while foreigners from compatible backgrounds will be fast-tracked.

Proposals to row back on changes made by the last government to make the giving of Danish citizenship to the children of foreigners born in Denmark easier have also been made. The practice of migrant parents giving birth in their new country and using the citizenship of their child as a pretence to stay has given the rise of the label ‘anchor babies‘ in the United States.

Some other moves have already been announced. Breitbart London reported yesterday the Danish plan to expand treason laws to encompass citizens who travelled abroad to fight Jihad.

While the right-wing coalition that now rules Denmark only recently won a convincing victory at the national elections, the left-wing opposition is determined to fight the changes, and last night held a march through Copenhagen to demand “decent treatment of refugees”. reports upwards of 20,000 attended the event, with torch-bearing protestors shouting well-worn slogans such as “say it loud and say it clear, refugees are welcome here”.

The protesters will have a lot to complain about. Hardline immigration and integration minister Inger Støjberg has already cut benefits for migrants, replacing unemployment payments with much lower integration benefits, the payments for which are dependent on migrants learning Danish.
