Maajid Nawaz of the Quilliam Foundation, who is liberal Muslim activist against sharia law, theocracy, Islamism, jihadism, and terrorism, is a real Muslim.

This morning I awoke to find a couple of articles in my news-feed, one in French and one in English, both accompanying a video that appears to show either Islamic State or people pretending to be Islamic State filming a mock execution in a studio or warehouse, complete with green screen background sets and multiple cameras to catch the action from different angles. The man playing the role of the victim in the scene is wearing the familiar orange jumpsuit and the man playing the role of executioner is dressed in the black outfit with a black face mask and … Continue reading Election Disrupting Pro-Russian Ukrainian Group “Hacks” Alleged ISIS Mock Execution Video From McCain Staffer and Russian State Run Media Uses It To Spin Yet Another Web of Lies: Russian Government’s False Accusations Against McCain And Rita Katz’s SITE Intelligence Group Also Promoted by Noted Conspiracy Theorist Website of James Fetzer

The Legendary A&M Sessions/The 1966 Demos & (The Complete) It Comes To You In A Plain Brown Wrapper sessions as a 2 CD set (proposal)

If A&M and Buddha are listening, I propose that to do proper justice to the Beefheart legacy perhaps…just perhaps… 1. The Legendary A&M Sessions should be combined with the 1966 Magic Band demos currently found on disc 1 of Grow Fins (Just Got Back From The City) which mostly have a sound quality almost as good as the A&M singles and would together make a very nice album documenting the music of the pre-Safe As Milk Magic Band: The Legendary A&M Sessions​/The 1966 Demos 1.
