Kim Jong-Un May Have One Good Shot at the U.S. – Obama and the Russians Provided It!


During the Obama administration, the Russians were allowed to conduct extensive international airspace magnetometer research of the instabilities inherent to the western third of the United States. The results of this study are the very weakness that Kim Jong-Un, who now has ICBMs with the capability of reaching this area, could take advantage of with one well-placed nuclear “trigger.” Sound far-fetched? Stay with me here.

Let’s go down the rabbit hole together…

Yellowstone National Park is actually an active supervolcano, and it is HUGE! As you walk around the park you may think: “I don’t see any volcanos?!” That’s because much of the entire park is a volcano – and the bubbling geysers and hot springs are an indication of the churning activity below the surface.

Please watch this short intro video to get you up to speed for the rest of this information before moving on…

“Only” a 10% chance of complete devastation in our lifetime? ONLY???

Let’s get some more details in mind before we talk about why that chance could be increased to approximately 99.9% by North Korea, or any other tactical nuclear power.

The Yellowstone Supervolcano

Beneath the spectacular beauty of Yellowstone National Park lies a ticking time bomb, a supervolcano that’s overdue for its next eruption. When that day inevitably comes, it will trigger the end of civilization as we know it.

The term “supervolcano” implies an eruption of magnitude 8 on the Volcano Explosivity Index, indicating an eruption of more than 1,000 cubic kilometers (250 cubic miles) of magma. Yellowstone has had at least three such eruptions: The three eruptions, 2.1 million years ago, 1.2 million years ago and 640,000 years ago, were about 6,000, 700 and 2,500 times larger than the May 18, 1980 eruption of Mt. St. Helens in Washington State.

Yellowstone Caldera

Map of Yellowstone Calderas

The last time the Yellowstone supervolcano erupted was 640,000+ years ago. The Yellowstone eruption area collapsed upon itself, creating a sunken giant crater or caldera 1,500 square miles in area. The magmatic heat powering that eruption (and two others, dating back 2.1 million years) still powers the park’s famous geysers, hot springs, fumaroles, and mud pots.

Here is another short info video with a few major points, please watch before continuing…

Here’s the kicker, recent discoveries have shown us that Yellowstone’s magma reserves are many magnitudes greater than previously thought, say scientists from the University of Utah.

Underneath the national park’s attractions and walking paths is enough hot rock to fill the Grand Canyon nearly 14 times over. Most of it is in a newly discovered magma reservoir, which the scientists featured in a study published in the journal,  ScienceMag.

It may help scientists better understand why Yellowstone’s previous eruptions were some of Earth’s largest explosions the last few million years.

In the past 2.1 million years, Yellowstone’s volcano has violently erupted three times and “blanketed parts of the North American continent with ash and debris,” according to the US Geological SurveyStatistically, Yellowstone’s active supervolcano is long overdue for a colossal eruption.  According to a Discovery Channel Documentary, an eruption of this magnitude would bury North America, drape the atmosphere in a sulfur haze, dim sunlight, and plunge the world into a volcanic winter. 

Recently, in July 2014, ground temperatures rose high enough to dry out geysers and boil the sap in some trees. A few inches under the surface, thermometers recorded a temperature of 200 degrees Fahrenheit — nearly hot enough to boil water. So, national park authorities closed Yellowstone to keep people from burning their feet — or basting their tires on melting roads.

From that time: Firehole Lake Drive, a 3-mile-plus offshoot of the park’s Grand Loop that connects the Old Faithful geyser and the Madison Junction, is currently off limits. Park operators say the danger of stepping on seemingly solid soil into severely hot water is“high.”

“It basically turned the asphalt into soup. It turned the gravel road into oatmeal,” Yellowstone spokesman Dan Hottle said. While thermal activity under the park often gives way to temperature fluctuations that can soften asphalt throughout Yellowstone, Hottle said the latest wave was much worse than usual.

In April 2o14, a 4.8 magnitude earthquake struck near the Norris Geyser Basin in the northwest section of Yellowstone, which spans 3,472 square miles of Wyoming, Montana, and Idaho, caused no injuries or damages and did not make any noticeable alterations to the landscape, geologists said. Though benign by seismic standards, it was the largest to rattle Yellowstone since a 4.8 quake in February 1980 and it occurred near an area of ground uplift tied to the upward movement of molten rock in the super-volcano, whose mouth, or caldera, is 50 miles long and 30 miles wide.

Now Yellowstone is trembling at a higher level…

The biggest earthquake in 34 years, measuring 5.6 magnitude, hit Montana the morning of July 7th, 2017. The epicenter of the tremor was just 240 miles away from Yellowstone Park.

Panicked residents of Montana feared the worst when the quake struck, with concerns over the stability of the Yellowstone volcano that we are discussing here.

A spokesperson for USGS said: “The location and focal mechanism solution of this earthquake are consistent with right-lateral faulting in association with faults of the Lewis and Clark line, a prominent zone of strike-slip, dip-slip and oblique-slip faulting trending east-southeast from northern Idaho to east of Helena, Montana, southeast of this earthquake.”

The huge quake came just weeks after a swarm of around 900 smaller earthquakes rocked the region.

Hundreds of quakes were recorded at the site, in the state of Wyoming, in just over two weeks – its most active period in five years.

The recent unprecedented earthquake swarms and other signals of activity have put scientists on high alert for a large-scale super volcanic eruption. In the following video, the scientists predict the worldwide effects of this cataclysmic eruption, which experts predict will produce energy equivalent to the detonation of 1,000 nuclear bombs.

What’s the catch to this story? Here’s where it gets not good!

The Russian president of the Academy of Geopolitical Problems outlined two key geophysically weak US regions to attack in order to combat NATO’s aggression toward Russia.

In his article, Konstantin Sivkov justifies the option of “complete destruction of the enemy” because NATO has been “moving to the borders or Russia.” He outlined two geophysically weak US regions to attack in order to combat NATO’s aggression toward Russia.

Sivkov, listed as a “Doctor of Military Sciences,” described scenarios that involved dropping a nuclear weapon near Yellowstone’s supervolcano or the San Andreas Fault.

One bomb could catalyze the eruption of this supervolcano…

volcano

“Geologists believe that the Yellowstone supervolcano could explode at any moment. There are signs of growing activity there. Therefore it suffices to say that the impact of a relatively small munition of the megaton class could initiate an eruption. The consequences will be catastrophic for the United States, a country just disappears,” he said, according to a translation by Sydney Morning Herald.

Fears have been raised Kim Jong-un is planning to fire a nuke at the volcano and San Andreas fault line, triggering an earthquake and eruption.

Experts believe the hermit kingdom now has an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) capable of reaching the US west coast.

So, now let’s analyze recent events…

North Korea has been carrying out weapons tests at Mount Paektu – a 9,000ft active volcano on its border with China.

And Kim has repeatedly threatened to reduce the US “to ashes”.

The tubby tyrant appeared to reveal his plans when he displayed a map of the US with a massive hole in the middle earlier this month.

Interestingly as noted above, Konstantin Sivkov – an analyst from Russia which has been accused of secretly helping North Korea’s missile programme, suggested a nuclear attack on Yellowstone just two years ago.

As the United Nations dithers, Kim’s rocket scientists have developed an ICBM that can fly up to 7,000 miles – more than enough to reach Yellowstone – and an H-bomb small enough to fit on it.

America’s military might and massive nuclear arsenal could easily overwhelm North Korea – making any launch a suicide mission.

But Kim may only need to fire one missile to wipe out the US completely.

Despite few people living in the Yellowstone National Park, any “super-eruption” would still kill 90,000 people in an initial explosion.

Up to 11 cubic miles of burning magma would run across the surrounding area.

The eruption would also fire ash 25 miles into the atmosphere – blotting out the sun and causing a nuclear winter.

A 10ft blanket of ash would cover the US for 1,000 miles in all directions.

Up to two-thirds of the US would be uninhabitable and Midwest farms would be covered – almost totally stopping food production.

North Korea tested a thermonuclear weapon as powerful as 250,000 tonnes of TNT and 25 times as big as the nuke dropped on Hiroshima, Japan, at the end of World War 2 earlier this month.

In a “purely coincidental” demonstration of what it could do to Yellowstone situation, the blast at the Punggye-ri Nuclear Test Site – just 72 miles from the volcano Mount Paektu – set off a massive 6.3-magnitude earthquake.

Interestingly, there was a mysterious second 4.1-magnitude earthquake at the site 8.5 minutes later.

This has baffled seismologists, but it may have been the collapse of a tunnel at the underground test site, on the slopes of Mount Mantap.

The North Koreans used a concealment cavern and detonated a super bomb deep into Mount Mantap.

How much more evidence do we need of their intentions?

Seismologists speculate further that the secondary seismic event was an earthquake triggered by the test, a rock burst, which is a violent rock fracture around the many tunnels of the mountain.

IMHO, this is exactly the modus operandi I believe they are testing – a triggering of the Yellowstone supervolcano.

They are testing to determine exactly what the yield of a nuclear weapon will be necessary to disrupt the rock cap over the Yellowstone Caldera.

 So, do we wait for the weasel to sneak one in on us? Liberals certainly think so. Let me know your thoughts in the comment section at the bottom of this page…

Amidst NK Turmoil China Has Gone Viral Over The Heart Shaped Boob Challenge! – NSFW Video


In the midst of threats of WW3 being started over North Korea, the Heart-Shaped Boob challenge has gone viral on Chinese social media. Unlike the ice-bucket challenge or #freethenipple campaign, this one is not to raise awareness or to break any stereotypes about women.

bizarre trend heart-shaped breasts challenge

This challenge actually has a purpose that is equally bizarre as the challenge itself: It is about testing if your breasts are big enough to be squished into a heart shape or if your nipples are small enough to be hidden with your hand. Basically, it’s all about flaunting them jugs to the world.

bizarre trend heart-shaped breasts challenge

Reports say the challenge was started by a woman called Ayi Xi Tai Lu, who showed off the trick on a livestream session and inspired the others to follow suit. And now, the Internet is flooded with pictures of women’s breasts being molded into a heart shape, and painfully so.

For the ‘Heart Symbol Boob challenge’ (桃心胸挑战), female netizens try to make a heart shape out of their breasts. The latest challenge is a risky one, because “obscene” (yinhui) or “pornographic” (seqing) images are officially not allowed on Chinese social media. Many of the images posted by netizens have already been removed.

 

It may seem ridiculous, but if it’s something that boosts confidence of women, they might as well go ahead. I have no problem with rating your attempts! Send pics!

 

Of course, some guy always has to try to get into the act…

New VIDEO: National Winner Disqualified For Being Trump Supporter!


A Kansas makeup artist says she won a national contest sponsored by Kat Von D Beauty but was later disqualified because of an Instagram post supporting Donald Trump’s presidential candidacy.

Screenshots taken by Gypsy Freeman show she was declared the winner last month of an Instagram “Saint + Sinner Contest” sponsored by the makeup line, which was founded by tattoo artist and former reality show star Kat Von D.

Freeman’s entry was an Instagram image of an angelic figure beside a girl in an all-black outfit and thick mascara, the Wichita Eagle reported. The winner of the Saint + Sinner Contest – and a guest – was to be flown to Los Angeles to attend the launch party of a new makeup line from Kat Von D, perhaps best known for her role on “LA Ink.” The approximate value of the prize package, which included a $500 gift card to Sephora, was $2,100.

To enter, Freeman submitted an Instagram image of an angelic figure beside a girl in an all-black outfit and thick mascara.

When Freeman was announced as the winner, curious Instagrammers went to her page and found a pro-Trump post from Election Day last year.

Von D, who starred in the tattoo-themed TLC reality show “LA Ink,” later messaged Freeman on Instagram to say she had “drawn a personal line in the sand between myself and anyone who supports that man,” according to screenshots of the conversation.

“My launch party (and my brand) celebrates many things that Trump is against,” Von D added, according to the screenshots. “And I just need you to know that I personally have a hard time with inviting anyone who would support such an anti-feminist, anti-homosexual/LGBT, anti-immigrant, and anti-climate change fascist such as Trump.”

According to the screenshots, Freeman replied: “I won’t be upset with you if you can’t have us there for these reasons, and I wish you the best. We would love to be there, of course, but I sincerely do understand if you decide to replace us with someone who supports the candidate you support.”

The celebrity then replied, according to the screenshots provided: “It’s not about inviting people based on their political stance – it’s just extremely difficult (borderline impossible) for me to be friends with or associate with anyone who would support a man who goes against everything I stand for. I would feel the same way towards people who supported Hitler, or any other fascist.”

The Florida-based photographer who took the photos for Freeman’s entry, Jenn Bischof, was invited to – and attended – the launch party in her place, Freeman said.

A post on Bischof’s  Instagram account shows her at the party alongside Kat Von D.

All evidence of the contest’s existence has since been deleted from the brand’s Instagram account and website, though the contest rules are available in a cached version of the site.

Freeman told The Eagle it’s “really unfortunate” that politics was brought into an art contest “where I never brought it into the art contest.”

“I didn’t erase (the Trump post) either,” she said. “Part of the great thing about this country is having freedom of speech.

Freeman – who does fashion editorial, styling and a variety of bridal work – said she has used Kat Von D Beauty products in her makeup kit for years, though she will likely stop doing so. She said she plans to contact Sephora, which sells the product line, about the incident as well.

“It’s definitely bigotry – it’s everything that they’re calling us, they’re doing,” she said. “It’s a huge case of hypocrisy.”

Multiple phone calls and messages left with Kendo Holdings, the parent company of Kat Von D Beauty, have not been returned.

ALERT! Tomorrow, June 20th, We Have to Stop Nancy Pelosi’s Handpicked Anti-Trump Tool for Georgia’s 6th District.


 

Democrats have been trying desperately to hand President Trump and Republicans a defeat following the November elections.

This is their last chance.

The momentum is clearly on our side, but we can’t let up for a moment. We MUST finish strong to win the special election.  SHARE THIS INFORMATION VIRALLY!

Meet Dangerous Jon Ossoff…

 

And he has an agenda with friends like these…

Image result for pelosi ossoff

To the Democrats it’s not just an election, it’s more of an encore for Nancy Pelosi, the 77-year-old House Democratic leader who spent four years as the nation’s first female speaker, lost her majority in 2010 and now wants the gavel again.

In an NBC interview on Sunday, Pelosi said “The voters in their districts want to know what they are going to do for them, But since you brought it up, and I’m glad you did, I think it’s really important for the voters in those districts to know who the candidates will be voting with.”

 

She went on to slam House Speaker Paul Ryan and other GOP leaders who she said want to “dismantle Medicaid.”

Moderator Chuck Todd also asked Pelosi if the attention around Ossoff was “overstated” given that he pulled around the same support that Hillary Clinton drew despite spendingmore than $6 million of his campaign haul.

“No, not at all,” said Pelosi, adding: “We’re very proud of that, and really just someone who has attracted personally such support. He made a remarkable showing. It’s about him and the commitment he has made to the people of that district. We feel very confident.”

While Karen Handel released a radio ad from Georgia’s popular Senator Johnny Isakson this morning, dangerous liberal Jon Ossoff can’t escape his support of Nancy Pelosi.

Image result for pelosi ossoff

These special interest democrats are looking to elect one of their own. After all, 95% of Ossoff’s “grassroots” campaign is funded by donations outside of Georgia, highlighted by big money from Hollywood stars, and over a million dollars in contributions from California, New York, and Massachusetts combined. In fact, a recent filing showed only 2.5% of new contributions came from the state of Georgia.

It’s no secret that Nancy Pelosi, her SuperPAC, and liberal backers have bankrolled Ossoff through this election.

Ossoff’s Former Boss Is The Controversial Rep. Hank Johnson –

“Rep. Hank Johnson (D., Ga.) launched into a tirade against Israel and its policies toward the Palestinians, comparing Jewish people who live in disputed territories to “termites” that destroy homes. Johnson also compared Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman to Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, a remark that drew vocal agreement from those in the room.” (Washington Free Beacon, 7/25/2016)

Ossoff Is Supported By Radical Keith Ellison –

The Anti-Defamation League Has Asserted That Ellison’s Past Comments On Israel Have Been “Deeply Disturbing And Disqualifying.” (Press Release, “Speech Raises New Doubts About Rep. Ellison’s Ability To Represent Traditional Democratic Support For Israel,” Anti-Defamation League , 12/1/16)

You can tell a lot about a politician by the way he votes and who funds his campaign. Clearly, Jon Ossoff aligns more with the dangerous liberal views of Nancy Pelosi, Hank Johnson and Keith Ellison than the beliefs of Georgia families.

Single?

Want to make sure you saw Jon Ossoff dodge the question of if he supports single-payer health care…

This also happens to be a stance widely supported by two liberal Ossoff supporters, Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders, so it’s no surprise Jon is ducking from the question. He can’t let the people of the 6th District see he is nothing more than a puppet for his left-wing backers.  

This is just another example of Jon Ossoff’s values fitting with liberals 3,000 miles away, not with the people of Georgia’s 6th District.

When reporting on Jon Ossoff’s constant inability to answer questions asked to him, please consider using the following comment from the Handel campaign:

“It’s not surprising Jon Ossoff would try to duck and hide from a question about single-payer health care. He can’t afford to let Georgia families know his values align with liberal Democrats like Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren rather than the voters in the 6th District.”- Handel Campaign Spokeswoman Kate Constantini

It’s been a rough few weeks for so-called national security expert Jon Ossoff, let’s take a look at his worst moments…

·         Jon Ossoff supporting the dangerous Iran Nuclear Deal…but will NOT admit it on his website

Chelsea Manning May Be Free But He’s Still a Traitor – Steve Sheldon / Townhall


By Steve Sheldon

Image may contain: 1 person, standing

Army Private Bradley Edward Manning, now known as Chelsea Elizabeth Manning, was released from the U.S. Disciplinary Barracks in Leavenworth, Kansas on May 17 after serving only seven years of a 35-year sentence for releasing approximately 750,000 classified documents to Wikileaks. His sentence was commuted by President Barack Obama three days before he left office.

In April 2015 – while in prison – Manning started receiving hormone therapy to satisfy his desire to appear as a woman. This therapy was bought and paid for by the American taxpayer. A month earlier, the U.S. Army Court of Criminal Appeals ruled that Manning be referred to in either a gender neutral term or a feminine one going forward.

I won’t bore you with the creepy details, but Manning was a problem from day one in the Army and should have been discharged immediately. His image should be on a poster in every Army recruiter’s office… Continued at: Chelsea Manning May Be Free But He’s Still a Traitor – Steve Sheldon

Chris Cornell dies in ‘suspected suicide’ aged 52, just hours after performing gig in Detroit


Rocker Chris Cornell has died aged 52, just hours after performing a sold out Soundgarden gig at the FOX theatre in Detroit on Wednesday night.

09:00 EDT, 18 May 2017

Police are reported to be investigating whether the death may have been suicide.

  • Chris was reportedly ‘found dead on the bathroom floor of his hotel room in the MGM Grand Detroit by a friend’
  • The singer tweeted eight hours before the news of his death broke 
  • Soundgarden split in 1997 and reunited in 2010, their last record was King Animal in 2012
  • During their 13-year hiatus, Cornell was admitted to rehab for alcohol addiction
  • He was married to Vicky Karayiannis for 13 years and they were parents to Toni, 12 and Christopher, 11 
  • Cornell was previously wed to Soundgarden manager, Susan Silver, with whom they share daughter  Lillian Jean, 17
  • He famously sang the song, You Know My Name, for James Bond’s Casino Royale
  • The rocker was part of the same Seattle grunge rock music scene as Kurt Cobain

Chris’s wife called a family friend and asked them to check on him, according to channel 4 WDIV Detroit.

Too soon: Chris performed on stage to a sold out crowd at the Fox theatre in Detroit (pictured), just hours before his 'sudden and unexpected' death

Cornell’s representative, Brian Bumbery, called Chris’s passing ‘sudden and unexpected’ and said his wife and family were shocked by it.

The statement said the family would be working closely with the medical examiner to determine the cause and asked for privacy.

The Grammy award-winning, Golden Globe nominated singer also started the Chris and Vicky Cornell Foundation to support children facing poverty and abuse.

He told Details magazine in 2012: ‘When I met my wife Vicky’s family, I had to go out of my way to convince them – to show them – that I wasn’t anything like their idea of a musician.’

As for letting his own children date a rock star, Chris told Details: ‘I’ve met many, many musicians that I wouldn’t let anywhere near my daughter. Or my son.’

Cornell was previously married to Susan Silver, with which he fathered daughter Lillian Jean, 17.

Susan was manager of both Alice In Chains and Soundgarden – but they divorced shortly before he married Vicky.

He was part of the same Seattle grunge rock music scene as Nirvana’s Kurt Cobain, and in 2015, footage emerged of Cobain doing an impression of him.

He told Shaun Keaveny during an interview with BBC Radio 6 in 2012 that having the Nirvana and Pearl Jam as friends when Soundgarden were making it big really helped him.

He said: ‘It was an exciting time. We had people we could talk to about this insane experience. It was happening to a few of us. People we had known for a long time.

‘It was all new to us. We didn’t know what to make of it. It helped to have some friends going through the same craziness.’

‘Really sad to hear the news about Chris Cornell. Another one gone to soon.’

Meanwhile, Cornell faced his own share of personal demons before becoming a clean-living family man.

He said: ‘When I transitioned into adulthood – high-stakes emotional responsibilities – I did everything I could get my hands on. It happened without me really noticing it,’ he confessed.

‘The thing is, when you pick up the pipe for the first time, you don’t know that that’s your fate. The moment isn’t that dramatic. And then that was it – I didn’t want to care anymore.’

Chris Cornell talks his passion for music before his death.
Soundgarden split in 1997 and reunited in 2010, their last record was King Animal in 2012.

When Soundgarden reformed, he said the only real change was the lack of booze on the tour bus after he went tee-total.

He said: ‘The biggest difference I noticed… and we haven’t even really talked about it: There are no bottles of Jack Daniels around or beers. And we never talked about.. it’s just not there.’

The band – also comprised of Kim Thayil, Matt Cameron and Ben Shepherd – were due to continue their North American tour and travel to Columbus, Ohio on Friday, with the run ending in Oklahoma on May 27.

During their 13-year hiatus, Cornell went through a dark period and was admitted to rehab for alcohol addiction.

In 2012, Chris spoke about his struggle with addiction, saying at the time: ‘It’s something that would have happened even if Soundgarden had stayed together.

‘It was a long slow slide and then a long slow recovery, but there was self-discovery too.

‘For me it was mostly alcohol – from my late teens until my late thirties.’

The GAP Features Hijab in Their 2017 Campaign – #CloseTheGAP #BoycottGAP


Yes, ladies and gentlemen, this is what we’ve come to. Major corporations are kissing Muslim ass to get their dollars! Gap is welcoming the season by celebrating diversity, with a hijabi. The American clothing retailer launched its new summer collection with a video featuring Americans from around the country, one of whom is a hijabi.

“Along the way we met truly amazing people (like you). Brave and loving, funny and powerful, complex and strong, YOU ARE GAP!”
Gap joins other companies like CokeMicrosoft, H&M, and Honey Maid to name a few, who are featuring Muslim women wearing hijab in their commercials and showing their audience that they are only in it for the money, screw our culture.
“When Gap reached out to us about featuring one of our hijabs in their campaign, we were thrilled! It’s finally out, and we could not be more excited about the finished piece!” the Haute Hijab staff wrote in a blog post.
This needs to go viral, share it with the #CloseTheGap and #BoyCottGAP tags. Let’s hit them where they really care, their GD bank account! This garbage is going too far. They don’t give a flying f##k about Muslims, it’s just brand capitalizing on current affairs and a big corporation tapping into the American Muslim demographic to make more money.

When GAP reached out to us about featuring one of our hijabs in their campaign, we were thrilled! It’s finally out, and we could not be more excited about the finished piece!

Watch the GAP video below:

GAP’s commitment to inclusivity and diversity is nothing new. They dedicate a page on their website to break down everything they are doing as a company to foster inclusion. They state, “Diversity unlocks our innovation, helps attract and retain talent, and builds connections with our customers.” We couldn’t agree more.

In 2013, Gap featured a Sikh model in their holiday #MakeLove campaign, and when the ad was defamed, Gap responded with a message of solidarity and even changed their Twitter background to the picture of Ahluwalia (the Sikh model). Most recently, they made strides towards inclusivity by showing children that different is beautiful with their latest 11-year-old model, April, who has a skin condition called Vitiligo. April is featured in a video on Gap’s Facebook page saying,”Confidence is courage.” That’s a powerful message to send to young children.

Hybutalla, who was featured in the campaign. It is important for people to see relatable role models and models in the mainstream media. Diversity needs to be acknowledged and celebrated. While there is no doubt a lack of diversity in the fashion industry, things are slowly beginning to change. Gap joins other companies like CokeMicrosoft, H&M, and Honey Maid to name a few, who are featuring Muslim women wearing hijab in their commercials and showing their audience that the hijab is beautiful, it is normal, and it is here to stay.

Are you struggling with hijab? Is there something holding you back from putting it on? Do you have thoughts of removing it? As Muslims, we have a responsibility to help our fellow sisters in need. In surah Tawbah, Allah (S) says, “the believers, men and women, are protectors of one another: they enjoin what is just and forbid what is evil…” (9:71).

At all times, and most particularly in times of trials and tribulations, it is the duty of Muslims to stand together helping and supporting one another. Allah has decreed that Muslims should form a tight-knit community or ummah that loves and cares for one another. The Prophet (S) taught that the ummah should act like a body: if one part of the body suffers pain, the other part also suffers. As Muslim sisters, we have a responsibility to support one another in times of need.

At Haute Hijab, we aspire to provide support to those struggling with hijab.  Haute Hijab too is part of the wider community and our service is not only to supply apparel to Muslim women, but also to recognize that community support is needed for those we interact with on a daily basis. As a company, helping our community is part of our core philosophy.

The Apples and Oranges (pun intended) of the Trump / Nixon Rhetoric of the Leftists, and the Real Reason he was fired…


It’s like comparing World War II to an exhibition baseball game. Apples and oranges doesn’t do justice to how different these two situations are.

The ink was not yet dry on President Donald Trump’s statement announcing the dismissal of when political opponents began drawing comparisons to President Richard Nixon’s infamous “Saturday Night Massacre.”

Comparisons between Nixon and Trump are already numerous, from commentators ranging from Carl Bernstein to Stephen Colbert. The Late Show has even joked that Trump receives social-media counseling from Nixon’s ghost. But Nixon came from a different time and governed a very different America. Therefore, until the Watergate scandal really became critical in early 1973, Nixon’s presidency went very differently from the way Donald Trump’s has so far, reflecting key differences between that time and this one.

With the Watergate investigation closing in on him, Nixon in October 1973 fired his attorney general and deputy attorney general before he found an official willing to ax the special prosecutor who was investigating the Democratic Party headquarters break-in.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N-Y.) argued that is analogous to Trump’s dismissal of Obama administration holdover Yates for ordering Justice Department lawyers not to defend the president’s executive order freezing the refugee program and travel from seven terrorism-compromised countries.

“We had a Monday night massacre,” he declared. “James Comey, a person of great integrity who follows the law, was fired.”

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) drew the same conclusion, confirming that she voted against the confirmation of Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) to be the attorney general. She praised Comey arguing that it took guts.

“That statement took a steel spine to stand up and say, ‘no,’” she said. “It took the courage of [Nixon Attorney General] Elliot Richardson and [Nixon Deputy Attorney General] William Ruckelshaus to stand up to President Nixon. That is what an an FBI director must be willing and able to do.”

But legal experts noted Tuesday that Nixon was trying to obstruct a criminal investigation in which he was implicated, while Trump simply removed an insubordinate political appointee from the previous administration.

“There’s no comparison at all,” said Peter Flaherty, president of the National Legal and Policy Center. “This Justice official was insubordinate and should have been fired.”

Andrew McCarthy, who served as lead prosecutor on several high-profile terrorism cases in Manhattan in the 1990s, agreed. “To my mind, he should have been escorted out of the building,” he said.

“It’s like comparing World War II to an exhibition baseball game,” he said. “Apples and oranges doesn’t do justice to how different these two situations are.”

Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch, said Comey acted for clearly personal and political reasons.

“Trump’s move was an anti-corruption move,” he said. “It’s the exact opposite of what Nixon did … This is exactly what we need more of.”

Flaherty said former President Obama almost certainly would have taken the same action against a holdover from his predecessor’s administration. And the holdover official likely would have been “vilified,” not praised in the media, he said.

“It underscores the problem, to me, just how much trouble the media is having covering President Trump,” he said.

A man who played a role in Nixon’s downfall, Watergate reporter Carl Bernstein, also threw cold water on the “Saturday Night Massacre” storyline.

“There’s a big difference, because the ‘Saturday Night Massacre’ was really about firing the attorney general when Nixon was the target of an investigation and was actively obstructing justice,” he told “CNN Tonight” on Wednesday. “The president is within his rights here to fire the FBI director, that he has that ability.”

For Democrats hoping for fissures between Trump and the GOP majority in Congress, House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) stomped out that bit of wishful thinking.

“What is happening is something that we support, which is, we need to pause and we need to make sure that the vetting standards are up to snuff so that we can guarantee the safety and security of our country,” he told reporters at a Capitol Hill news conference on Tuesday. “That is what this does. We want this goal to be achieved.”

A letter obtained by NBC News from Trump to Comey states the president had been advised by administration officials to remove the FBI head.

“I have received the attached letters from the Attorney General and Deputy Attorney General of the United States recommending your dismissal as the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. I have accepted their recommendation and you are hereby terminated and removed from office, effective immediately,” Trump told Comey.

“While I greatly appreciate you informing me, on three separate occasions, that I am not under investigation, I nevertheless concur with the judgement of the Department of Justice that you are not able to effectively lead the Bureau.”

“It is essential that we find new leadership for the FBI that restores public trust and confidence in its vital law enforcement mission.”

In a memorandum written by newly confirmed Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, numerous reasons are given for Comey’s dismissal.

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) said he’s seen no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, accusing Democrats of pushing a “huge myth.”

Paul said Democrats will now clamor for a special prosecutor to look into the matter following the firing of FBI Director James Comey.

“I don’t think there’s been any facts presented that anybody broke the law. … I don’t think there’s any evidence that anybody broke the law,” he said on “Fox & Friends” today.

Paul said he has not even heard an “accusation” on what crime Democrats believe may have been committed.

“[Democrats] were for getting rid of Comey too, but now they’re gonna say it’s all about this Russia investigation, which hasn’t produced one iota of evidence,” said Paul.

He said Comey’s firing “could not happen soon enough,” calling out Democrats for criticizing the move despite previously declaring they had lost faith in Comey after his handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation.

Which brings us to the most important underlying reason for the dismissal…

Watch Dee Snider’s Emotional Stripped Down Version of “We’re Not Gonna Take It” {VIDEO}


Directed by musician and illusionist Criss Angel in a desert outside Las Vegas, the promo was produced to help raise awareness of Angel’s new cancer charity, HELP (Heal Every Life Possible). It was founded in honour of his two-year-old son, who is in remission from leukaemia.

Angel tells the Las Vegas Review Journal: “Dee and I have known each other since the 1990s and he was a strong proponent of mine for years. We are both from Long Island, or as we like to think of it, ‘Strong Island’, and his record publishing company gave me the rights to the song and it is our anthem for gratis.

“Dee was unbelievably generous with his time and participation.”

The mission of the Johnny Crisstopher Children’s Charitable Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization, is to raise awareness of pediatric cancer and provide funds for research, treatment, and – ultimately – a cure. Unlike many other non-profit charities, 100% of your donation will go directly to this fight; NOT one cent will be deducted for ANY expenses, salaries, or overhead. Criss Angel has funded the operations of the foundation out of his own pocket since its inception in 2008. It has now become his life’s mission (after working with childhood causes since 2001) when recently his own child, Johnny Crisstopher was diagnosed with leukemia in 2015 at 20 months old.

Saturday Echoes 


It’s a cold, blustery, day

In the distance, the neighbors are target shooting

The sound of each round echoes through the woods

It reminds me of something

The sound…it evokes a primal emotion within me, and it’s beautiful in its way

It’s the sound of safety…of preservation…of revolution

It is the sound of love blowing out the flame

All one ever deserved or has given comes back in the echo of that sound

I remember hunting with my dad in West Texas when I was little. He and I would ride on the tool box in the back of the truck, while my grandmother drove barely faster than a walking pace. I got to hold his rifle, as he scanned the desert for deer, his binoculars in one hand and a beer in the other.

That rifle was as long as I was tall and I felt very important because…
