The Islamic State press officer who taunted the Obama administration by saying the terrorist group would “raise the flag of Allah” in the White House is now dead.
Abu Mosa was killed by Syrian forces loyal to dictator Bashar Assad, whose regime also is fighting against the Islamic State, which began as part of the anti-government militia there and is accordingly also known by the acronyms ISIL and ISIS.
One of the State Department’s Twitter accounts announced the death of Mosa and a fellow terrorist…
ISIS confirms the death, also on Twitter…
Abu Mosa never seemed to grasp the irony of a group that beheads children calling America “cowards” for using drones to kill the cowards that behead children.
Joe Scarborough believes Islamic State terrorists will be intimidated by President Barack Obama’s golf game just minutes after his statement on beheaded journalist James Foley, perhaps thinking to themselves, “Wow, that’s one cold bastard.”
The “Morning Joe” host unveiled his alternative explanation to the “horrifying” images of Obama grinning ear-to-ear on the golf course right after a sober statement condemning the execution of an American journalist by Islamic fundamentalists in Iraq.
“I think there are probably one or two terrorists in ISIS — because this is how they make their money, right?” Scarborough said. “This is how al-Qaida funded their operations, by kidnapping Europeans and getting ransom money, right?”
“I’m sure Barack Obama would say that if we can’t go golfing at an exclusive golf course in Martha’s Vineyard, then the terrorists have already won,” he asserted.

Thirty states plus the District of Columbia have sought the Center for Disease Control’s help identifying potential cases of Ebola.
When contacted for consultation, the CDC examines the patient’s symptoms and travel history to decide whether or not a blood test is needed. In most cases, the CDC is able to rule out Ebola without the need for a blood test.
ABC News reported Wednesday that the CDC was contacted 68 times since the end of last month. In 58 of those cases Ebola was ruled out. In the ten remaining cases CDC ordered a blood test. Seven of those tests have already returned negative, and three are still outstanding.
Two patients who were transported to America after contracting Ebola in West Africa were released from a hospital in Atlanta this week. Both recovered after treatment which included an experimental drug called ZMapp. The CDC pronounced both patients cured, issuing a statement saying, “They no longer have Ebola virus in their blood and therefore pose no risk to household contacts or the public.”

The Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) is threatening to sue Steven Rose after he offered a discount to customers who bring in a church bulletin. They said Bailey’s Pizza in Searcy, Arkansas is violating the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
“I’m just selling pizzas,” Rose said. “I love my Lord and you see it expressed all over my building – but I’m just selling pizzas.”
And he’s not kidding. The local television station reports that customers are allowed to write Bible verses on the walls. And in the center is a message from the owners “God is the center of our lives, so our scripture wall is the center of Bailey’s Pizza.”
So is it really unconstitutional for restaurants to provide religious-themed discounts? Not at all, says Hiram Sasser, director of litigation for Liberty Institute.
“In fact, if what FFRF is saying were true, restaurants and other businesses would be precluded from giving veterans and military members discounts because that would technically be discriminating based on veteran status,” Sasser tells me. “Is that what FFRF wants? Give me a break!”
“I didn’t say you had to go to church. I said come in with a church bulletin,” Rose said, noting that some churches publish their Sunday bulletins on their websites. “[Atheists] can download it and bring it in.”
