Pepco, the D.C. electric services provider, initially said it had scattered reports of outages for “unknown” reasons, and that it was looking into the matter. Government officials later pointed to an explosion at a southern Maryland power facility as the likely cause for the regional issue.
(Hey anyone notice how many Iranians study electrical engineering in the US and Canada? So many that at one point a university refused to accept them and then was forced to reverse that policy. My guess is below)
Department of Homeland Security secretary Jeh Johnson says dozens of Americans who traveled overseas to train with ISIS militants are now back in the United States.
“As I understand it, of the 180 Americans who have gone overseas to fight in Iraq and Syria, 40 have come back,” said 60 Minutes correspondent Lesley Stahl.
“I assume you’re keeping close tabs on those 40?” she asked Johnson.
“We have in fact kept close tabs on those who we believe have left and those who’ve come back,” Johnson responded. “A number have been arrested or investigated and we have systems in place to track these individuals. But you can’t know everything.”
Iran too anti-Semitic to expect such a concession…
President Obama shut down the idea of requiring Iran’s recognition of Israel and its right to exist as part of the Iran nuclear deal, explaining that such a recognition is “akin to saying that we won’t sign a deal unless the nature of the Iranian regime completely transforms.”
Obama made the comments in an interview with NPR’s Steve Inskeep Monday about the controversial nuclear deal, the (disputed) framework for which was agreed upon last week. When Inskeep asked the president why the US would not require Iran’s recognition of Israel as part of the deal, Obama explained that the openly “anti-Semitic” regime could not be expected to accept a demand so contrary to their views… Here’s the excerpt via NPR:
Sources confirmed it was believed to be Mr Arwani, a preacher at the An-Noor Mosque in Acton, west London.
The mosque has previously hosted the son of radical preacher Abu Hamza, and was the location for the November 2013 escape of terror suspect Mohammed Ahmed Mohamed, who dressed himself in a burka.
A police source said the mosque had attracted a number of former criminals who have turned to Islam and it was possible that a feud at the mosque had turned violent.
Mr Arwani was advertised as a speaker at an event at the East London Mosque last June and listed as speaking from Syria.
[…] A spokesman said: “At this very early stage detectives retain an open mind regarding the possible motive.”
(The last bit means they already probably know it was another muslim who shot him)
5. South Africa: Halal Food labelling: Christians turn to court
Here are a couple more important links about South Africa today:
(I have no doubt they will eliminate the white farmers in SA. What annoys me already is that almost certainly we in North America will be expected to, and will, make up for the massive food shortages they will cause themselves when they do it)
6. Here is a site which archives a list of hacked sites. This link itself is safe so you can click on the word ‘mirror’ beside any site name you see and it will show you the actual hack that was done to the site. Notice the whole first page is Israeli sites and pretty much every hacker is a muslim hacker for islam. This link is all Islamic State hacks of other people’s sites
(For once I hope congress listens to him!)
Thank you CB Sashenka, M., AM., Wrath of Khan, Richard and Yucki and so many more.
Its been quite a few years now since this Vlad Tepes Blog project has been started. Things have grown predictably worse along lines readers of this site all saw pretty clearly. Even the deniers are now saying that the world is going straight to hell, even if they are so heavily invested in their own viewpoints that they still cannot see the obvious causes of pretty much all the escalating problems we face now. Buckle up. It will get worse. But nothing is certain. Not the end of our culture or the continuation of it.
