The film then cuts to three prisoners who have been accused of spying making video “confessions,” before showing an abandoned and broken down amusement park where they will soon be killed by the caliphate’s child “cubs,” as the organization calls their youngest recruits.
The first execution features a boy who appears to be approximately 7-years-old and wearing camouflage, sawing through the the throat of one of the men who is bound to a spinning ride. After the man is completely beheaded, the ride slowly spins with his head on the floor.
The next scene features the second prisoner tied to a nearly empty and decrepit ball pit, with a child in all black ISIS attire who appears to be approximately three or four years old. The tiny child, surrounded by the broken playthings, is then handed a small gun by an adult member of the group. The boy shakily shoots the prisoner five times before shouting “Allahu akbar” twice.
The final execution is carried out by a boy of roughly 10-12 years old, as the tiniest jihadist looks on. Just before the pre-teen beheads their victim, the younger boy makes a cutting motion across his throat.
The middle-school aged child then saws the man’s head off, before sticking the knife into his back.
At least one of the victims is believed to be from the Kurdish group PKK.
The violent and graphic film also features the children in their training, and waving the black ISIS flag.
Just before the start of the new year, the terrorist organization had also released a video featuring child jihadists as young as nine hunting down bound prisoners inside an abandoned building and executing them.
Four people have been taken into custody in Chicago after apparently kidnapping and brutalizing a special-needs man they claimed supports Donald Trump — all while stupidly streaming their violent crimes on Facebook Live. Police have stated that the victim was held by the group for between 24 and 48 hours.
“The victim, who has special needs, was a high-risk missing person from northwest suburban Crystal Lake, police say,” CBS reported.
In the 30-minute long footage, streamed live onto Facebook on Tuesday by a woman named Brittany Herring, the deranged lunatic is seen laughing as the tied up and gagged man is having his sweatshirt cut from his body with a knife.
WARNING, EXTREMELY GRAPHIC AND DISTURBING CONTENT:
The group, all of whom are 18-years-old and black, can be heard repeatedly saying “F— DONALD TRUMP,” as they drink what appears to be alcohol and repeatedly assault the unidentified man, who is white. They continuously mock and torment him throughout the ordeal, at one point forcing him to drink from the toilet.
They are seen cutting the man’s scalp, kicking him, choking him, and hitting him as the deranged woman laughs. Their victim is repeatedly kicked and hit, his scalp is cut, all while he is tied up with his mouth taped shut.
CPD press conference regarding disturbing live social media video depicting a battery ; victim was tied up https://t.co/jDrjfz4sJV
During a press conference on Wednesday evening, Chicago Police Commander Kevin Duffin told reporters that the man was an “acquaintance” of the assailants, as he attended a school with one of the men. They also reported that the initial investigation is indicating that it appears he may have initially went with the man he knew willingly.
“It’s sickening,” Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson said during the conference. “I’ve been a cop for 28 years, and I’ve seen things that you shouldn’t see in a lifetime — but it still amazes me how you still see things that you really shouldn’t. I’m not going to say it shocked me, but it was sickening.”
Disturbingly, the commander appeared to downplay the severity of the torture as “kids being kids.”
“Kids make stupid mistakes, I shouldn’t call them kids, they are legally adults, but they are young adults and the make stupid decisions,” Duffin said. “That certainly will be part of whether or not we seek a hate crime, determine whether or not this is sincere or stupid ranting and raving.”
The police found the man walking around disoriented and transported him to a local hospital. Officers subsequently responded to a battery at the location, and tied the signs of struggle at the scene to the disoriented male. It was not until later that the police learned of the video of the horrific crime.
Following the press conference, #BLMKidnapping trended nationally on Twitter. Interestingly, but perhaps unsurprisingly, the hashtag kept disappearing from user’s trending lists — including the one visible from the We Are Change account. The hashtag #BrittanyHerring soon began trending instead.

The sick individuals fit the classic textbook definition of terrorists, “the use of violence and threats to intimidate or coerce, especially for political purposes.” There is plenty of violence, and their profanity-laced ranting about Trump certainly seems to cover the political aspect.
There is no mention of terrorism or it being a hate crime in the local news reports, and no charges have yet been filed against the depraved criminals. The department has stated that charges can be expected in the next 24-hours.
The man is reportedly safe from his captors, and being treated in a local hospital, Fox 32 reported on Wednesday. Police have confirmed that he is traumatized.
Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham just don’t seem to have the pull that they used to — and are now backing off of their demands for a select committee to investigate “Russian hacking.”
McCain and Graham
McCain and Graham, along with Democrats, have been at the forefront of pushing for a war with Russia over hacking allegations — despite Wikileaks repeatedly denying that the Kremlin was their source.
After speaking to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on Tuesday, McCain announced that he would be backing off their push for a new committee to be formed.
“He said he doesn’t think we need it,” McCain told Politico.
“We’re just going to move with the individual committees and see how that works. If it doesn’t work, we’ll regroup,” Graham added.
“It’s clear the Russians interfered,” McCain said on Fox News last month, mirroring the claims from the Hillary Clinton campaign. “Now, whether they intended to interfere to the degree that they were trying to elect a certain candidate, I think that’s a subject of investigation.”
The aging war hawks, who some may say are poster children for term limits, have also been fighting for harsher sanctions on Russia after the White House announced their retaliatory measures.
“The retaliatory measures announced by the Obama Administration today are long overdue,” McCain said in a joint statement with Graham on December 29. “But ultimately, they are a small price for Russia to pay for its brazen attack on American democracy. We intend to lead the effort in the new Congress to impose stronger sanctions on Russia.”
Despite the media and the current administration insisting that Russia meddled in the election, 71 percent of Americans do not believe it to be the case — according to a Politico/Morning Consult poll.
Thankfully, President-elect Donald Trump is not on the same page, and has repeatedly stated that he hopes to engage in diplomacy with the Kremlin.
“At first glance, the Pussyhat Project is about making a powerful visual statement at the Women’s March on Washington, D.C. It’s about the hats, and also a lot more,” the Pussyhat website reads. “At its core, this project is about creating a form of representation for those who cannot be there, developing connections between people who care about women’s rights, and creating a framework for community and personal agency from the local to the national level.”
The Pussyhat Project was launched by Krista Suh and Jayna Zweiman of Southern California, and has now apparently become “a thing.” The hats are knit with pink yarn and are meant to be shaped like cat ears — though they could also be mistaken for devil horns.
“If everyone at the march wears a pink hat, the crowd will be a sea of pink, showing that we stand together, united,” the website continues. “Pink is considered a very female color representing caring, compassion, and love – all qualities that have been derided as weak but are actually STRONG. Wearing pink together is a powerful statement that we are unapologetically feminine and we unapologetically stand for women’s rights.”
The protesters have even began placing them on statues, perhaps they had trouble finding enough people willing to wear them.
On January 21, the day after Trump is sworn into office, thousands of women are expected to march on the White House in protest of their chosen candidate losing the free and fair election.
“Everything else about the Women’s March, however, is reaching a level of absurdity worthy of the man they are protesting. Start with the fact that they are billing this event as the voice of women when 42 percent of women (and 62 percent of non-college educated white women) actually voted for Trump,” Shikha Dalmia noted in an excellent takedown of the protest for the Week.
Notoriously creepy Vice President Joe Biden was at it again on Tuesday — kissing Senator Chuck Grassley’s wife on the lips and getting a bit too touchy feely with several other ladies during the Senate inauguration.
Biden is well-known for his awkward moments, but this one with Barbara Grassley may take the cake.
The Vice President’s habit of groping women at these events was called out on Twitter by Donald Trump in October — after Biden labeled the now president-elect a “sexual predator” over the infamous hot mic recording of the businessman discussing how women are into him.
“I don’t ever remember that kinda locker room talk, never. You might have a guy say, ‘Boy, look at that,’ or make some comments like that. But the idea that ‘she lets me do anything because I’m a celebrity,’ is just sick. And what’s– what’s wrong is, we have to change the whole culture here and that no man has a right to touch a woman, to raise a hand to a woman, to abuse a woman for any reason,” Biden said on Meet the Press after the footage was leaked.
Still, despite the obvious inappropriate nature of the actions of “Uncle Joe,” Democrats consistently laugh it off as adorable. It isn’t hard to imagine the reaction to this pattern if he was a Republican, instead of one of their own.
