Photoshop Of NFL's CoverGirl Ad Takes Aim At Roger Goodell, Ray Rice (Photo)

Photo gone viral-



NEW YORK - Activists have hijacked a CoverGirl ad campaign intended for female NFL fans in order to protest the league's mishandling of the Ray Rice domestic violence controversy.

A picture of a woman CoverGirl was using on social media sites for its "Get Your Game Face On" campaign was changed. In it, she's wearing purple eyeshadow and fingernail polish in support of the Baltimore Ravens -- and now she has a black eye.

The protesters are posting the jarring image to Twitter and Facebook while calling for the resignation of the NFL's commissioner Roger Goodell and for others to boycott the league.

Rice was cut by the Baltimore Ravens and suspended indefinitely from the NFL after a video surfaced last week of him punching his then-fiancee, now wife, in an Atlantic City elevator.

The league is being criticized for how it handled the case because Rice was originally suspended for just two games. Goodell has admitted that was a mistake. Since then, the NFL has established a six-game unpaid ban for those who violate its policy on domestic violence


 

Scarborough Goes Off on Hillary Clinton in Epic Rant: 'If You're Gonna Run, Then run! If You Want To Save America, Then Get Your Ass Out There and Stop Playing Your Stupid Political Games'

"If You're Not Gonna Run, Then Get the Hell Out of the Way"

Scarborough on Morning Joe just levels Hillary for the -maybe I will, maybe I won't run- tease.
This is awesome. He also jabs Jeb Bush here



SCARBOROUGH: “We have enough crisis’ that maybe playing it safe, maybe we need a politician that doesn’t just sit back and act like a robot, and just like, get programmed in. No creativity, no spontaneity. Nothing from the heart. This is Hillary Clinton’s problem for people who know her and like her, like I know her and like her. But she puts on that political hat, and then she’s a robot. She goes through the motions and never reveals herself"

“This is not a game. This is not some little chess match, this is something that actually matters. … If you want to run, then run! if you want to save America then get your ass out there and save America! Stop playing your stupid political games because more people are out of work.”

“Terrorist are carving heads off of people who are trying to help over in the Middle East, and you’re sitting around playing games...Hillary, if you’re going to run, just say you’re going to run! … And if you’re not going to run, then get the hell out of the way.”


 

U.S. Launches First Airstrikes on #ISIS Near Baghdad

'Beginning of intensified action against ISIS militants in Iraq'

I thought there was 'no military solution in Iraq?'



NBC News
The U.S. carried out an airstrike near Baghdad on Monday in what a defense official described to NBC News as the beginning of intensified action against ISIS militants in Iraq.

U.S. attack aircraft hit an ISIS fighting position southwest of the capital in support of the Iraqi security forces, defense officials said. There was also at least one airstrike near Mount Sinjar in northwestern Iraq, the officials said.

The military has been pounding ISIS targets from the air since Aug. 8. President Barack Obama announced last week that a broader campaign, including the authorization of strikes inside Syria, would seek to "degrade and ultimately destroy" ISIS.

In Iraq, the earlier airstrikes were mainly to protect important sites, like Mosul Dam and the city of Erbil, or to break the seize on Mount Sinjar, where thousands of religious minorities had been trapped by the militants.

The airstrike Monday near Baghdad was more offensive in nature and was not triggered by any advance of ISIS toward the Iraqi capital, the official said.

Flashback-

Just forget about all this...

Photos- Brazil Cycling Team Debuts Biggest Uniform FAIL in Sports History


These are the new uniforms the Colombian women’s cycling team wore over the weekend

Pretty bad.
Just wait, it gets worse

Colombia's national cycling team has become a laughing stock with its new skin-toned uniforms.

Designers of the female squad's new garb bizarrely decided to use nude-colored cloth around the groin area.

The fashion faux pas means that when the women are standing, they appear partially nude. The new uniform was spotted being worn by the team at last weekend's Giro Toscana in Italy.

A photograph of six riders wearing the red, yellow outfits was posted to Twitter by Colombian cycling account (NYDN)

Wardrobe malfunction on steroids...

The team went up on stage.
This is what it looked like from a distance--



 

Brother Of Aid Worker David Haines Quotes From The Koran, Says Islam Is “Not To Blame" For Beheading By ISIS



They are called the 'Islamic state' for a reason.


London (AFP) – The brother of British hostage David Haines murdered by Islamist militants issued Sunday a tearful video statement about growing religious radicalisation in which he quoted a verse from the Koran.

“We are seeing more and more radicalisation in every walk of life. It is not a race, religion or political issue, it is a human issue,” Mike Haines told British media.

His voice breaking with emotion, Haines read out a passage from the Koran saying: “Since good and evil cannot be equal, repel thou evil with something that is better.”

He added: “The Muslim faith is not to blame for ISIL, nor is it the fault of people of Middle Eastern descent.”

Aid worker Haines was kidnapped in Syria in March 2013.

His murder was revealed in a video released late on Saturday by militants from Islamic State

Urban Outfitters Selling Blood-Stained Kent State Sweatshirts


Mega-FAIL


gawker
In a strident display of bad taste, Urban Outfitters was selling a $130 "vintage" Kent State sweatshirt with fake blood splatter this weekend as an apparent homage to the 1970 shooting that left four dead. The sweatshirt is now listed as "sold out" in Urban Outfitter's online store. The shirt appears to have been a one-off sale, the site imploring customers, "We only have one, so get it or regret it!"

As People discovered, the shirt appears to have gone up for sale on eBay for $550—the auction ended earlier this morning with zero bids.


**UPDATE** They had no idea this resembled a bloody sweatshirt, none whatsoever. This is a 'sun faded' sweatshirt

Urban Outfitters has issued the following statement, via their Twitter account:

Urban Outfitters sincerely apologizes for any offense our Vintage Kent State Sweatshirt may have caused. It was never our intention to allude to the tragic events that took place at Kent State in 1970 and we are extremely saddened that this item was perceived as such. The one-of-a-kind item was purchased as part of our sun-faded vintage collection. There is no blood on this shirt nor has this item been altered in any way. The red stains are discoloration from the original shade of the shirt and the holes are from natural wear and fray. Again, we deeply regret that this item was perceived negatively and we have removed it immediately from our website to avoid further upset

Islamic State Issues New School Curriculum in Iraq- Patriotic Songs, Iraq History, References to Christianity Banned


The new Mosul school curriculum, issued by ISIS leader al-Baghdadi himself, stresses that any reference to the republics of Iraq or Syria must be replaced with "Islamic State." Pictures that violate its ultra-conservative interpretation of Islam will be ripped out of books. Anthems and lyrics that encourage love of country are now viewed as a show of "polytheism and blasphemy," and are strictly banned.

Surprisingly, students are not showing up to 'school'


BAGHDAD (AP) — The extremist-held Iraqi city of Mosul is set to usher in a new school year. But unlike years past, there will be no art or music. Classes about history, literature and Christianity have been "permanently annulled."

The Islamic State group has declared patriotic songs blasphemous and ordered that certain pictures be torn out of textbooks.

But instead of compliance, Iraq's second largest city has — at least so far — responded to the Sunni militants' demands with silence. Although the extremists stipulated that the school year would begin Sept. 9, pupils have uniformly not shown up for class, according to residents who spoke anonymously because of safety concerns. They said families were keeping their children home out of mixed feelings of fear, resistance and uncertainty.

"What's important to us now is that the children continue receiving knowledge correctly, even if they lose a whole academic year and an official certification," a Mosul resident who identified himself as Abu Hassan told The Associated Press, giving only his nickname for fear of reprisals. He and his wife have opted for home schooling, picking up the required readings at the local market.


 

Midland Cty. Texas Sheriff: 'Muslim Clothing, Koran Books' Found on Border Trails

Disturbing. Sheriff Gary Painter on FNC this morning says he 'received an intelligence report' that there are active ISIS cells in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico. That is right across the border from El Paso, Texas. He also reveals that Korans and Muslim clothing has been found discarded on the border trails.
Watch-



U.S. authorities are on high alert along the southern border amid concern that ISIS may try to attack from the Mexican side. One Texas sheriff has said that he received an intelligence report stating that ISIS cells are operating in Ciudad Juarez, which is just across the border from El Paso, Texas.

Midland County Sheriff Gary Painter talked to Elisabeth Hasselbeck to discuss the actions he's taking amid the growing threat. Painter said he's been told that local authorities need to be on alert and be looking out for ISIS fighters trying to cross the border.

"The border is wide open. ... There's always a way to get across," said Painter, pointing to evidence along border trails that Muslim individuals have been in the area.

"We have have found Muslim clothing. They have found Koran books that are laying on the side of the trail. So we know that there are Muslims that have come across and are being smuggled into the United States," he said. (Fox News)
