This is how the elitist media views the majority of Americans. If you speak to us you’re stooping to the Christian masses. Can you imagine the hysterics that would ensue if Chris had accused Jeb of stooping to the Muslim crowd. Matthews ratings are so low, I don’t know how he still has a job. He’s an evil jerk.
This is sad, but not surprising. Have you ever noticed we’re the only religion who sends most of their missionaries overseas to places like Africa, and doesn’t do much in the way of missionary work at home? We send our money overseas, and kill millions of our babies. The Muslims don’t do that. While things are definitely going to get bad for Christians, and already are in so many places, at least we know that we win in the end, and spend eternity with Jesus ruling over the world. Still, it makes me sick that our government is doing nothing about the slaughter of Christians in the Middle East. Hopefully a Presidential election will change that, but I’m not holding my breath. Christians are the only religious people on the planet that it’s okay to persecute.
A new study shows Christianity on the decline in the wealthy West, with Islam surging. What Would Jesus Say? It’s not what you think.
A study released by the Pew Forum last week demonstrates that the future of the religious world is rapidly and dramatically changing. Differences in fertility rates and the high incidence of conversion make Islam the world’s fastest-growing religion. And, if current rates continue, by 2070 Islam could be the world’s largest.
Between now and 2050 the number of Muslims is projected to rise to 2.8 billion, a 35 percent increase. While India will continue to be predominantly Hindu, it will also be home to the world’s largest Muslim population. And, by 2050, Muslims are slated to make up 10 percent of Europe’s population and be the largest non-Christian religion in the U.S.
There is good news for Hindu and Jewish populations, too, which will continue to grow, and the global population of Buddhists should hold steady.
Changes are coming, though, for Christianity. The trend of southward expansion will continue. By 2050, 4 out of every 10 Christians will live in sub-Saharan Africa. Christianity will grow, but not in wealthier countries. In the U.S., the Christian majority will slip from roughly three-quarters of the population to a still-healthy two-thirds.
We should take the findings with a pinch of salt. As a study, it is grounded in the assumption that people will continue to act in the future as they have in the recent past. In other words, the study assumes that economics, education levels, migration patterns, technological and health-care advances, military conflicts, and politics will not impact fertility and conversion rates in the decades to come. That seems unlikely to be the case.
Obama gets upset about a cartoon of his prophet Mohamed, but another holocaust against Christians in the Middle East doesn’t even make his radar. He’s more concerned with getting voters to cross the Mexican border and too concerned with his ego and legacy to care about children being crucified, and Christians being murdered in mass. We don’t have a President. We have a dictator with no conscience. It doesn’t make me feel very safe, because he probably cares even less about the safety of the American people.
1. Col. Sangari, summarize the situation of the Assyrian Christians on the Nineveh Plains.
The Assyrian Christian communities on the Nineveh Plains in Iraq, and also in northern Syria in the Khabur River Valley, are facing annhilation by the forces of the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL). According to UN sources an estimated 660,0000 Assyrians have been driven from their homes by ISIL forces and are now living as refugees in Iraq, Turkey, Syria, Lebanon, and even Iran.
2. Which forces in Iraq are currently fighting ISIS and are they working together?
Since August of 2014 Assyrian military forces have been fighting in Syria and Iraq under Assyrian command and control and the Assyrian flag. These forces have achieved unity of command and unity of effort, and are recognized by coalition forces as vital partners in the fight against ISIS/ISIL aggression. In October, and because of the demonstrated combat effectiveness of Assyrian forces, Sunni, Kurdish, and Shia forces began recruiting Assyrians into their ranks using the political networks they had previously embedded in the Assyrian communities. This move siphoned off troops and money from Assyrian forces, causing a reduction in their combat capabilities that contributed to the loss of 37 communities to ISIL in the Khabur River Valley. If this trend of Assyrian volunteers being sent to fight with other non-Assyrian groups is not halted, the result will be the complete destruction of the Assyrian Army and the subjugation of Assyrians in their own homeland under Kurdish, Sunni, and Shia military leadership and civilian administration.
3. In your recent media appearances you´ve spoken about a double standard being used by the US government with respect to the Assyrian Christians–why is this true?
Obama wants to make voting mandatory. What’s next will someone from the DNC fill out the ballot for us too. His excuse is that other countries do it and it would keep the billionaires from having too much influence. Is it easier to vote when you’re a billionaire or something? Voting has nothing to do with campaign contributions, just ask Hillary, she’s an expert on billionaires.
The president whose major policy achievement is mandatory health insurance thinks maybe voting should be mandatory, too.
Asked how to offset the influence of big money in politics, President Barack Obama suggested it’s time to make voting a requirement.
“Other countries have mandatory voting,” Obama said Wednesday in Cleveland, where he spoke about the importance of middle class economics, and was asked about the issue during a town hall.
“It would be transformative if everybody voted — that would counteract money more than anything,” he said, adding it was the first time he had shared the idea publicly.
The clout of millionaires and billionaires in campaign funding has been enormous, and many claim the uber wealthy have undue leverage in politics.
“The people who tend not to vote are young, they’re lower income, they’re skewed more heavily towards immigrant groups and minority groups,” Obama said. “There’s a reason why some folks try to keep them away from the polls.”
Voting is a right, not to be mandated. All this would do is get more uninformed, clueless people to vote. If you don’t give a crap about your country enough to vote, you don’t deserve to have a voice in the matter, and it’s not up to Obama to force them to care.
Europe is already flooded with Islamists, so this should be an easy feet. Remember back when we had a President that actually did stuff, and protected the homeland. We’re following the same path as Europe with our southern border wide open, so we can expect the same kind of attacks. It’ll just happen after Europe is toast. Is there anyone willing to fight this scourge until it’s no longer a threat to civilized society? We better hope we get the right President this time in 2016.
The ISIS terror group is planning to take over Libya and use it as a gateway to wage war across almost all of southern Europe, the London Telegraph reported.
A document written by an Islamic State (ISIS) operative in Libya says that the group plans to flood Libya with fighters from Iraq and Syria, and have them sail across the Mediterranean Sea pretending to be refugees on human trafficking vessels.
They would then target European cities and try to stage attacks on maritime shipping, according to the Quilliam Foundation, a British anti-radicalization group which said it had seen the document.
The report comes just days after ISIS released a video showing the mass beheading of 21 Egyptian Christian guest workers on a beach in Libya. The video, which led Egypt to stage retaliatory bombings of ISIS positions in Libya, also included footage of a jihadist pointing north toward Europe and declaring: “We will conquer Rome, by Allah’s permission.”
The writer of the document is an ISIS propagandist who uses the alias Abu Arhim al-Libim, who boasts that the terror group is awash in weapons captured in Libya’s 2011 civil war, when rebels seized mass quantities of armaments from longtime dictator Moammar Gadhafi’s military arsenal.
Some of the weaponry had been supplied to Gadhafi from Britain, which provided him with sniper rifles, machine guns, and ammunition.
Libim says northern Libya is less than 300 miles from some parts of the European mainland.

Even a majority of Democrats now support ground troops in Syria and Iraq to destroy the Islamic State. Only 30 percent of the country doesn’t support ground troops. The difference between the American people and our President is that we’re not Muslim supporters and we’re smart enough to see that the threat from Isil is only going to grow. We’re also tired of seeing Christians marched off to their death along with other minorities and anyone who doesn’t agree with the brutal animals that make up the Islamic State. They’re exterminating Christians and anything Christian from the land they occupy. Some of the destruction has been of priceless artifacts from the 9th century BC. The only thing these animals understand is overwhelming force, and the only way to stop them is to kill every last one of them. We can’t do that from the air and Obama knows it. He doesn’t care, because he wants it to be the next presidents problem. He doesn’t have the guts or the brains to wage a successful war, and he knows that too. So just like in Nazi Germany America will stand idly by while people die and Isil grows to a world wide force and hits us here at home. If only Bibi Netenyahu could be our president.
Support for using ground troops in the battle against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) is on the rise, according to a new survey.
A Quinnipiac University poll released Wednesday found that 62 percent of voters in the United States would support using combat troops in Iraq and Syria. Only 30 percent would oppose it, and overall support for deploying troops against ISIS was strong regardless of party, gender or age.
Seventy-three percent of Republicans surveyed would approve the use of ground troops, as would 53 percent of Democrats. The poll also found strong support for ground troops among Independents, with 60 percent saying they would back their deployment in the fight against ISIS.
The Quinnipiac poll shows a significant uptick in support for a combat mission. In late February, a Pew poll found that 47 percent would back boots on the ground. A separate CNN/ORC poll from the same month also concluded 47 percent supported the same outcome.
The poll’s findings come as Congress debates whether to authorize a request President Obama made on Feb. 11 for war powers against ISIS. His proposed authorization for use of military force (AUMF) would prohibit the use of “enduring offensive ground combat operations,” language aimed at soothing Democratic fears about a prolonged war in the Middle East.
This is exactly what the Obama administration wanted liberals to do. The plan all along was for Obamacare to eventually fail, then when the Republicans have no plan to replace it, they can move on to Single Payer. Single Payer was always the goal.
Liberal comedian Bill Maher, a longtime champion of Obamacare, began to change his tune on President Obama’s signature legislation Friday night.
“Obamacare: You know it’s the signature achievement of obviously this president and like many liberals I’ve been screaming how great it has been and ‘it’s working’ and ‘there’s no doubt,’” Maher said on his HBO show “Real Time.”
“But The New York Times on Sunday did an article that basically said, you know, when Obama said if you like your plan nothing will change — well, everything has changed,” Maher said. “46 percent of people are having trouble paying health care costs now, up 10 percent from a year ago because the deductibles went the up, the co-pays went up. They can’t see the doctor they used to see because he’s in a different network. They go to get questions answered and they’re talking to somebody reading a script in the Philippines. It’s like your prostate cancer is being handled by Comcast now.”
Why is it that Humanists and Atheists think freedom of speech applies only to them? Are they going to go after our Marxist President for saying “God bless America” next. The First Amendment doesn’t end when the word God is used. The Humanist group that’s going after a high school kid for saying God Bless America has too much time on their hands. I get so sick of these groups who say freedom of speech out of one side of their face and then want to censor people out of the other. We all have equal rights under the law, so they should crawl back under the Godless rock from whence they came.
Florida Student Told No ‘God Bless America’ In Morning Announcements By Letitia Stein
TAMPA, Fla. (Reuters) – A Florida high school told a student this week to stop adding the phrase “God bless America” when reading scripted morning announcements, drawing protests and irate phone calls from around the nation, school officials said on Friday.
The principal at Yulee High School, located in north Florida near Jacksonville, asked the student to stick to the script after receiving a six-page letter on Monday from the American Humanist Association, a group that describes itself as advocating for humanists, atheists and secular governance.
The letter said two Yulee students who are atheists had complained about the use over the past several weeks of the phrase.
“Don’t ad-lib. Just read what’s on the script, and don’t put anything else on it,” was the message given to the student announcer, said Sharyl Wood, a spokeswoman for the school district in Nassau County, just north of Jacksonville.
Someone needs a history lesson very badly. The Crusades were launched by Christians as a defensive measure against the same kind of radical, murdering, barbaric Islamists we’re fighting today. If not for the Catholic Church, Christendom would have been wiped off the map and Europe and the Middle East would look very different today.
Muhammad’s animals haven’t changed a bit in centuries. They still take over land and murder it’s inhabitants in their lust to spread Islam across the entire globe. Today isn’t really that different from the days of the Crusades in some ways. We just have jets and heavy weapons. But, we’re still fighting the same evil that Muhammad unleashed hundreds of years ago.
MSNBC’s resident socialist Lawrence O’Donnell made a whopper of a historical claim on the Thursday edition of his program. In the midst of ripping President Obama’s controversial National Prayer Breakfast speech from earlier in the day, O’Donnell asserted that “Catholicism was the most murderous force on the face of the Earth for hundreds of years,” as he ripped President Obama’s controversial National Prayer Breakfast speech from earlier in the day.
The left-wing host led the segment by mocking the breakfast as “the place where presidents go to pander to leaders of organized religions once a year.” He continued by slamming the Democrat’s address:
LAWRENCE O’DONNELL: If you ever want to search for the worst speeches given by a modern president, begin with the National Prayer Breakfast – the first of which was attended by President Eisenhower in 1953. President Obama, who is the most gifted writer and speaker in the history of the American presidency, today delivered the worst speech of his presidency. It was full of hollow pandering from start to finish, as politicians’ speeches to religious groups always are.
The only pandering Obama did was to ISIS. They’ve long called us the crusaders, and Obama just handed them some juicy propaganda material by agreeing with them.
At least someone in this war has a pair. Can you imagine our president even knowing how to shoot a gun. I think a lot of Obama’s indecision and cluelessness is really just weak kneed fear. He knows he’s not qualified to run a war, especially against his own people.
If anybody has any doubt about the Jordanian King being serious in delivering an “earth-shattering” response against ISIS, wonder no more.
Several Arabic newspapers have just reported that King Abdullah, who is a trained military pilot, may actually climb into the cockpit personally on Thursday to participate in the raids against ISIS. SNIP
California Rep. Duncan Hunter publicly stated, “King Abdullah is not President Obama.” I can’t think of a truer statement!
The tiny country of Jordan, with a small but efficient military is taking the lead in the war on ISIL, while Obama sits back and pretends nothing is happening, and refuses to provide military aid to Jordan. Children are being killed in mass murders, they’re being crucified and buried alive by the Isis’ barbaric animals. This is the beginning of world war III and we have a president that wants to talk about the crusades and the Inquisition, as if something that happened hundreds of years ago excuses what Islamic extremists are doing in the Middle East right now. Two more years of this man as out President could have very dire consequences for us and the whole world. The American people don’t trust Obama to protect them, and our allies don’t trust him to be there for them if they fight against this scourge. That leaves ISIL to run wild and murder their own people in mass. We’re fooling ourselves if we thing we’re not going to get hit next. I think most Americans know this fact. Perhaps that will be the one thing that will push Obama to do something besides golf and go on vacations.
Jordan said Thursday it had launched air strikes against the Islamic State group, after vowing a harsh response to the burning alive of one of its fighter pilots.
“The Jordanian air force launched raids against positions of the Islamic State group,” said a government official, who did not want to be named.
Meanwhile the gruesome death of Moaz al-Kasasbeh drew a torrent of condemnation across the world.
Hashtags to express grief over Kasasbeh’s death have taken over Twitter only hours after the news broke out on Tuesday, Al Arabiya News reported Wednesday.
It’s good to know that the American people aren’t the anti-Semites that out president and representatives are. But it’s sickening that our Democrat Congressman are planning not to show up for Netanyahu’s visit. Could they be any more slimy and out of touch with the American people, not that they really represent us on much of anything.
A newly released report at Politico says “some House Democrats are privately threatening to skip” Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s March 3 address, while US Vice President Joe Biden has yet to confirm his attendance. They might want to rethink their position, as a new Rasmussen poll finds considerable public support for Netanyahu’s speech.
According to Rasmussen, voters support Netanyahu’s address to Congress over the objections of President Obama by a margin of 52 to 25%, with 23% undecided.
The poll also found 44% of voters worried that relations between the U.S. and Israel have deteriorated during Obama’s presidency, while only 9% think the relationship has grown stronger.
The overall approval numbers for Obama’s policy on Iranian nukes, the threat Netanyahu will address, looks bad for the president, 28% support, 45% disapprove. Unsurprisingly, the internals for all of these questions find strong Democrat approval and Republican disapproval for Obama, although the Republican disapproval is noticeably stronger.
I’d be willing to bet most decent Americans would rather have Netanyahu as a President than the immature coward we have in office now.
The policy that American businesses are breaking the law by hiring illegal aliens, and the belief that we need to crack down on those businesses that hire them, just got thrown out the window by the new Attorney General. She believes everyone should be able to get a job, even if you broke the law and have no right to be here.
O’reilly just reported that all of the job growth for the last 8 years has gone to illegals and people with green cards. And these jobs aren’t working in the fields. They’re getting the high paying engineering type jobs. These are jobs that should be going to Americans who were born here, or are here legally. Is it any wonder disability claims have increased by 50% and a record number of Americans are now on government assistance?
Right to free speech? Nope. Right to bear arms? Forget about it. Right not to buy ObamaCare? Ha.
But illegal aliens do have a right to take your job. It’s in the Obamastitution. Right after locking up filmmakers who mock Islam. And children who bite pop tarts into the shape of a gun.
Just ask Obama’s AG nominee.
Attorney General nominee Loretta Lynch backed up President Obama on his controversial immigration executive actions during her confirmation hearing Wednesday — while going as far to say she believed in an illegal immigrant’s “right” and “obligation to work.”
Under questioning from Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., who asked whether legal residents or illegal immigrants have more of a right to a job, Lynch said everyone should be able to work.
It’s amazing what scientists can do, and the lives and quality of life they can save. Especially with 3-D printing available now, the sky is the limit.
Biomaterial experts at Germany’s Bayreuth and Würzburg universities claimed a breakthrough in cultivating living cells while holding them in place with liquified spider silk.
The research method mixed spider silk with connective fibroblast cells from mice to generate a so-called “bio ink” or gel. Fibroblasts typically begin wound repairs.
When extruded from a 3-D printer, the silk molecules quickly wrapped those cells, giving them a porous matrix in which to flourish, the team said. …
This could be a God send to people with nerve damage and perhaps paralysis.
Do our leaders not know that terrorists can read and they follow our news? Terrorism is growing around the world by leaps and bounds, and we’re inviting anyone into the country that wants to come. It’s only a matter of time before Jihadists slip through the cracks and do some real damage to the homeland.
It doesn’t help that the Republicans have bailed on their campaign promises regarding immigration. They think a bill that only adds 47 miles to the border fence and does nothing about Obama’s catch and release policies is good enough. We didn’t elect them to go along with Obama’s stupidity, we elected them to stand for something and do something about big problems. I guess that was too much to hope for.
The flow of Central American migrant families across the Texas border is continuing at almost the same level as a year ago, according to newly released federal data.
In the last three months of 2014, 7,468 Central American migrants crossed in family units, down only 12 percent from the 8,511 migrants who crossed during the last three months of 2013, according to the federal data.
The late 2013 flow was the vanguard of roughly 60,000 adults and children who crossed in so-called “family units” during the 12 months up to October 2014. That “family unit” inflow occurred alongside the much-publicized inflow of 60,000 children and youths.
Since last summer, White House officials have made deals with Mexico and other Central Americans countries that are intended to block the northern flow of migrants. The continued flow across the border suggests those deals have not succeeded.
The continued inflow is also a warning sign for Republican leaders, who are rapidly pushing a new border security bill that only adds 48 miles of fending to the 2,000-mile border but doesn’t do anything to end President Barack Barack Obama’s catch-and-release policy toward Central American migrants, say critics.
The military is now denying any action or decisions on the fate of Bergdahl. What could possibly take so long to decide? He walked off the post during a time of war and spent 5 years with the enemy. He converted to Islam, spoke their language so well he forgot English, and as far as I know he’s never said he didn’t want to leave his post. Get to the article 32 already. He shouldn’t still be working and getting paid as a Sargent, a rank he didn’t earn. And he definitely shouldn’t get 200,000 dollars in back pay for something he brought on himself.
No decision has been made about Bowe Bergdahl’s future, military officials said today, as an Army general continues to review the circumstances surrounding his 2009 disappearance that led to five years in Taliban captivity.
The Army issued a statement today denying media reports that said Bergdahl would be charged with desertion, possibly as early as next week.
Major General Ronald Lewis, the head of Army public affairs, labeled the reports as “patently false.”
“To be clear, there have been no actions or decisions on the Sergeant Bergdahl investigation,” Lewis said.
The investigation remains with Milley, “who will determine appropriate action — which ranges from no further action to convening a court-martial,” Lewis added.
Obama is going around Congress again by making all of ANWR untouchable wilderness. This undoes the legislation passed by Congress in 1980 allowing for a small area of AWNR to be used for oil and gas exploration. Why do we even have a Congress. The government is run completely by a narcissistic communist dictator. I’m sure it was no coincidence that Obama pulled this stunt while Lisa Murkowski has been corralling bipartisan support for more Arctic drilling.
According to sources quoted on the O’Reilly Factor, Bergdahl will be charged with desertion. According to Wikipedia the maximum U.S. penalty for desertion in wartime remains death, although this punishment was last applied to Eddie Slovik in 1945. No U.S. serviceman has received more than 24 months imprisonment for desertion or missing movement in the post-September 11, 2001 era.
Men died looking for this creep. Five terrorists were released from Guantanamo to fight another day because of him. I think he deserves the real punishment for desertion – death by firing squad. It’s open season on our troops because of him and the deal Obama made with terrorists. He will still be getting people killed long after a 24 month imprisonment. If not death, then he should receive a life sentence for his crimes.
On Monday’s broadcast of “The O’Reilly Factor” on the Fox News Channel, retired Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer of the London Center for Policy Research revealed to host Bill O’Reilly that sources tell him U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl will face charges for desertion.
Bergdahl was held captive by the Taliban-aligned Haqqani network in Afghanistan from June 2009 until his release in May 2014, which was part of a prisoner exchange for five Taliban members who were being held at the detention center at Guantanamo Bay.
This is just wrong on so many levels. First, Obama shouldn’t be inserting himself in the Israeli elections. But, he isn’t just voicing an opinion, he’s actually funding the opposition to Netanyahu’s election, and has flown 5 campaign experts into Tel Aviv to help defeat him. They’re careful not to support any specific candidate, thereby avoiding Israel’s campaign finance laws. Just for a little extra nastiness and anti-Israel bias, he refuses to meet with Netanyahu when he speaks in front of the U.S. Congress in March. This is how he treats our allies, while sending Yemeni terrorists home to Al Qaeda to wage more Jihad. Is there any question that Obama is anti-America and pro Jihad?
Obama won’t meet Benjamin Netanyahu – in Washington when he addresses the Joint Houses of Congress in March because of Netanyahu’s visit’s proximity to the Israeli elections. And Obama, of course believes in protocol and propriety which is why he won’t get involved. No, he’s not getting involved at all. He’s just sending his 2012 field campaign manager to Israel to run a campaign to defeat Netanyahu. That’s all. No interference whatsoever.
The Israeli Left adores touting Netanyahu’s “interference” in American elections, specifically his expression of support for Mitt Romney in the 2012 campaign. When it comes to Israeli left-wing politics, there are simply things you just don’t do when you represent the center-right. It should come as no surprise then that Haaretz, known on this side of the globe for its freakish ability to generate anonymous White House sources that love talking about how much Obama hates Bibi (a shared talent among the Left) would conveniently forget to translate this little news item for their English-reading audience.
I’ve come to the conclusion that our President is just flat stupid. Al Qaeda is taking over Yemen, and Obama’s answer is to release 47 Yemeni Al Qaeda from Gitmo. Our enemy takes more land and Obummer sends them reinforcements. There is no hope for him, only change for the worse, and a whole lot of favors done for Muslims and Jihadists.
The Obama administration says it is “in a war against al Qaeda.” But at the same time, it is trying to release 54 more Gitmo detainees, 47 of them from Yemen, which is one of the “dark corners” where al Qaeda operates.
“We say we’re in a war against al Qaeda,” White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough told CBS’s “Face the Nation” on Sunday. “We have just never said we have been in a war against terrorism, which is a tactic…We are, however, at war against al Qaeda, its manifestations in Yemen, its manifestations in South Asia, its manifestations in East Africa, North Africa.”
They’re resettling these Yemeni terrorists in other countries as if that will end their lust for terror and keep them permanently away from Yemen. Why do we elect morons?
Now Universities are teaching that it’s a problem to be white. Can you say reverse racism? What would the media and the elites do if they taught a class on the problem of blackness? There would actually be something non-racist to teach in that class. Things like the prevalence of fatherless homes in the black community, poor schools in black neighborhoods, gangs, and a disproportionate amount of black crime (usually black on black crime). Instead whitey is the problem according to our professors. It’s an upside down world we live in.
While the United States is committed to defeating the Islamic State (ISIS or ISIL) and other terrorist groups, General Martin Dempsy, current chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said eventually ISIS will collapse on its own.
In a pre-taped interview that aired on “Fox News Sunday,” Dempsey said he has long maintained that a group that embraces radical ideology has to maintain momentum to succeed.
The United States has destroyed a lot of their equipment and reversed some of their territorial gains and has had an impact on their leadership and command and control, Dempsey said, but added, “What will eventually cause the defeat of ISIL is that it will collapse under its own contradictions, frankly. When the populations in which it tries to maneuver realize that that ideology is not to their future benefit.”
Name me an Islamic country, or terrorist group, that has ever realized their barbaric lifestyle is not to their benefit. ISIS and every other terrorist group will be there until someone makes them leave or kills them. They’ve been killing for over a thousand years, so I’m not holding my breath for some kind of self imposed end to their reign of terror. Hamas has been weak at times and strong at times, but they’ve always been there killing people. How many thousands more people have to die while the U.S. waits for their “momentum” to subside and for them to self-implode? And this guy is running the military. Is it any wonder we’re losing wars all over the dang world.
Lord, keep the U.S. from becoming France with our immigration policies. The French are mobilizing almost as many troops and policeman in their own country as they have deployed in foreign wars.
“The threats remain and we have to protect ourselves from them. It is an internal operation that will mobilize almost as many men as we have in our overseas operations,” Le Drian told reporters after a cabinet meeting.
Mr. Defense Minister, it’s going to take a lot more than additional troops to protect your minorities from the animals in the no-go zones. You need to rid your country of the scourge of Islam before it totally takes over and kills all the minorities, Jews, and anyone who disagrees with them. Unfortunately, France is probably too politically correct to get it in time.
The victims, including journalists and police, died in three days of violence that began on Wednesday with a shooting attack on the political weekly Charlie Hebdo, known for its satirical attacks on Islam and other religions. Many at Sunday’s march wore badges and carried placards declaring “I Am Charlie”.
Sadly, wearing your little badges isn’t going to solve the problem either. It just makes all those wearing them a target.
Isn’t just about everything un-Islamic. Women driving is un-Islamic, women walking beside a man instead of 10 paces behind him is un-Islamic, women showing any part of themselves is un-Islamic. Of course it’s going to be un-Islamic to roll up three balls of snow and place them one on top of the other. One Cleric, Sheikh Munajjid, said making a snowman was like making a statue of a human image which is sinful. Where did he see these sinful humans that are made of 3 balls, a carrot and some coal? What planet do these nutjobs live on that humans look like that? There’s no understanding the Islamic faith, unless you still live in the 9th century.
A prominent Saudi Arabian cleric has whipped up controversy by issuing a religious ruling forbidding the building of snowmen, described them as anti-Islamic.
Asked on a religious website if it was permissible for fathers to build snowmen for their children after a snowstorm in the country’s north, Sheikh Mohammed Saleh al-Munajjid replied: “It is not permitted to make a statue out of snow, even by way of play and fun.”
Quoting from Muslim scholars, Sheikh Munajjid argued that to build a snowman was to create an image of a human being, an action considered sinful under the kingdom’s strict interpretation of Sunni Islam.
“God has given people space to make whatever they want which does not have a soul, including trees, ships, fruits, buildings and so on,” he wrote in his ruling.
That provoked swift responses from Twitter users writing in Arabic and identifying themselves with Arab names.
“They are afraid for their faith of everything … sick minds,” one Twitter user wrote.
Another posted a photo of a man in formal Arab garb holding the arm of a “snow bride” wearing a bra and lipstick. “The reason for the ban is fear of sedition,” he wrote.
A third said the country was plagued by two types of people:
“A people looking for a fatwa (religious ruling) for everything in their lives, and a cleric who wants to interfere in everything in the lives of others through a fatwa,” the user wrote.
Sheikh Munajjid had some supporters, however. “It (building snowmen) is imitating the infidels, it promotes lustiness and eroticism,” one wrote.
So it’s sinful because it makes Arab men feel lustful and erotic when they see a snowman? I think the problem is with the Arab man who is getting hot over a pile of snow, not the snowmen. What a sick religion.
A Muslim at an Ohio airport tried to stab a police officer while in the parking garage after trying to get a plane ticket using a woman’s ID. Aside from the obvious horror of using multiple knives to try and stab a policeman, what was this Muslim doing trying to get on a plane with multiple knives? I wonder what he really had planned for those knives. Just more evidence that the Jihadists are still out to kill us in large numbers, and our airports are still a target.
Hashim Hanif Ibn Abdul-Rasheed shot dead outside Ohio airport after ‘attempting to stab’ police officer: cops The 41-year-old Columbus-area man was armed with several knives when he used a woman’s ID to try and buy a plane ticket Wednesday afternoon, police said. When he returned to his illegally parked car, Abdul-Rasheed lunged at cops with a knife before being shot several times, officials said….
Unemployment droped to 5.6%, but Wages fell, and a record 92,898,000 Americans dropped out of the workforce.
Businesses had been creating jobs at a monthly pace of 224,000, though wage growth remained modest and the drop in the headline rate had come in large part due to a decline in the labor force participation rate. Indeed, the participation rate continued to plummet, falling to a fresh 37-year low of 62.7 percent.
A record 92,898,000 Americans are now not in the work force according to data released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The number of people participating in the work force also dropped back down to 62.7 percent, from 62.9 percent in November. The last time the rate hit 62.7 percent was in February of 1978. As Boehner said, “far too many middle-class families are struggling to bridge the gap between rising costs and stubbornly flat paychecks.”
This is what Obama calls a recovering economy. Recovering for who? The middle class is taking it in the pocket book with rising costs, and people are giving up on finding work. Hardly the signs of a booming recovery.
Syria is a problem that we better not ignore, or take lightly. Bible prophecy says that Syria will be destroyed and uninhabited in the end times. It would take a pretty massive attack on the West to provoke that kind of proportional response. Also, keep in mind Syria may still have biological weapons. MI5 must have good intelligence to announce a warning like this.
LONDON (Reuters) – Al Qaeda militants in Syria are plotting attacks to inflict mass casualties in the West, possibly against transport systems or “iconic targets”, the head of Britain’s MI5 Security Service said on Thursday.
Speaking after gunmen killed 12 people in an assault on a French satirical newspaper, MI5 boss Andrew Parker warned a strike on the United Kingdom was highly likely.
“A group of core al Qaeda terrorists in Syria is planning mass casualty attacks against the West,” Director General Parker said in a rare public speech at MI5 headquarters in London. His last public speech was in October 2013…..
Temperatures on the red planet were warmer on Thursday than fourteen states from Washington to Maine
MUMBAI: Two of three scientists at a session on climate change and society at the Indian Science Congress on Tuesday felt fears of man-made global warming were greatly exaggerated.
The weather patterns this winter just aren’t doing global warming loons any favors. In fact it’s making them look like idiots. Even when you substitute “climate change” for global warming, everyone knows these dolts said it would get warmer, and they cried out about the ill effects warmer temperatures would have on the environment. I wonder how long it will be before even the hard core give up and start screaming about a coming ice age that’s caused by man made environmental hazards?
Legionnaire’s disease is a deadly form of pneumonia, and it’s apparently on the rise in New York. Recently warnings were given about a reemergence of the measles. Kids are getting head lice in schools. Several communicable diseases were a problem in New Mexico in a facility to house illegal immigrants. Illegal Alien Minors have been shown to be spreading TB, Dengue, Swine Flu and other diseases as they come across the border and get sent to different parts of the country. Right after Obama announced his amnesty plan a strange outbreak occurred across the Midwest of Enterovirus D68 (EV-D68), which is related to the common cold but causes severe respiratory illness. The disease has sent a multitude of children to the hospital, with some requiring treatment in intensive-care units. Coincidence? I don’t think so.
Obama’s master plan to increase the liberal voting block is making Americans sick, in some cases with diseases that had once been eradicated, and are deadly. Thanks Obama. I hope your family gets to enjoy these new diseases, too.
There is no such thing as free Community College. What Obama is proposing is that someone else will foot the bill for everyone’s college. That someone else will be the American tax payer. If he wants free college why doesn’t he pack up his family and move to a communist country.
The national debt reached 18 trillion recently, up from 9 trillion when Obama took office. How many more trillions is he going to add in order to buy votes? The uninformed voters and liberals will actually believe this is free, and they’ll be hooked on another freebie that’s really not. We can’t afford this man in office anymore. He’s going to do more than transform this country, he’s going to sink it.
President Obama on Thursday proposed making community college free “for everybody who is willing to work for it.” In a video posted on Facebook, the president previewed his plan, which will be formally announced during a trip to Tennessee Friday. “It’s not for kids,” Obama said. “We also have to make sure that everybody has the opportunity to constantly train themselves for better jobs, better wages, better benefits.”
The proposal drew an immediate critical response from House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, who said, “with no details or information on the cost, this seems more like a talking point than a plan.”
Muslim immigration to the United States is on the rise. As I’ve said before, our leaders just don’t get it. Do they think all of these immigrants are moderate Muslims? That makes no sense when it’s the jihadists who want to infiltrate our country and destroy us from within. It’s not politically correct to consider Muslims a threat, even though they chop peoples heads off, blow things up, and shoot anyone they don’t agree with. Being politically correct will eventually end in death and destruction on our homeland. Even ISIS doesn’t bring home the threat to our deadbeat leaders.
“The primary threat from a group like ISIS to the homeland is through our immigration system,” Camarota said, referring to the Islamic State terrorist group that has beheaded three Westerners in recent weeks.
They are blind to the fact that the same things that happen in France, Israel, and around the globe can happen here, too.
“No one’s suggesting that they’re going to launch a missile and hit New York, but rather they’re going to board an airliner and blow it up,” he added. “They’re going to park a car in a public place, they’re going to go on a shooting spree, or any one of those things.
With the rise in the number of Muslim immigrants will come a rise in violence, guaranteed. How many will have to die before they get it?

The carnage continues over a cartoon image of the “prophet” Muhammad. Today it’s another shooting. This is what happens when a country doesn’t monitor their immigration and lets everyone in the door. Barbarians that haven’t gotten over the 9th century blow stuff up and shoot people. That’s where we’re headed if we don’t close off our borders and stop handing out visas like they’re candy. Our leaders think we’re immune to this kind of thing. What will it take to wake them up? Sadly, it will probably take the same thing the French are dealing with. Unless the powers that be decide to take away our freedom to express ourselves and stomp on the first amendment instead of dealing with the real problem.
Gunshots rang out in Paris this morning on a second day of deadly violence that has stunned the French capital. A policewoman died after being shot in the back less than 24 hours after a deadly terrorist attack on a satirical magazine. French police and security officials, who are hunting two brothers they suspect of murdering 12 people in an assault on the Charlie Hebdo magazine, are searching for links between the two attacks. Officials described Thursday’s shooting as another terrorist attack….
Good job to all those who called and let their opinions be known to their Representatives. We’re starting to get under their skin, but it needs to be a sustained effort. Every time Boehner does something weak kneed or in lockstep with Obama, we need to pick up the phone and give them a repeat lesson on what the people want. This is proof that they hear us when we contact them in significant numbers. Let’s use that weapon regularly and often.
It wasn’t the Republican votes against House Speaker John Boehner that truly rattled the GOP leadership, it was the phone calls.
There were hundreds of them, jamming the phone lines of the district and Capitol offices of dozens of House GOP lawmakers.
The callers were not angry about legislation. Nor were they asking for help with a local matter. They were demanding their representative vote against Boehner Tuesday in his bid to win election to a third term as speaker.
For the GOP leadership, the flood of calls was a game changer. It thrusted the leadership into triage mode as it scrambled to heal the growing rift among House Republicans. …..
If you’re wondering why our society is going down the crapper, it’s in part because our churches are leading the way. A church in Kansas is going to celebrate millions of abortions with discussion and a chile cook off. That’s a good choice of nourishment for such an event. It won’t be just the event subject matter that stinks to high heaven. Christians need to stop sending all their missionaries overseas and start putting them to work right here at home. Starting with churches like this.
According to recent reports, St. James Episcopal Church in Wichita, Kan., is preparing to mark the 42nd anniversary of legalized abortion with a chili dinner on church grounds later this month. Tickets range from $20 to $1,000 for the Planned Parenthood-sponsored event, which promises “an evening of stimulating conversation, refreshments and CHILI!”
The event, dubbed Chili for Choice, is one of many anniversary celebrations planned throughout the nation to mark another year of allowing American women to legally kill their unborn children. Concerts and celebrity appearances mark many of these gatherings; however, an ostensibly Christian church willing to openly endorse abortion has attracted significant social media criticism…
Of course the number flowing in from Puerto Rico borders has tripled. Obama opened the doors wide and said come on in. We’ll give you a drivers license, a job that should have gone to an American, and all the welfare you can stand. It kills me that our leaders pretend immigration is going to help our economy. How is taking jobs from Americans, and lowering the wages of the jobs they do get to compete with cheap labor going to help our economy? The answer is, it’s not! More people will be living under the poverty line and we’ll no longer have a middle class. They’re turning us into the same kind of third world country these people left.
The Puerto Rican exodus is at its height. And to judge from Transport Statistics Bureau data, over 72,000 Puerto Ricans left the island during the first 6 months of 2014, El Nuevo Día reports.
This number is triple what was recorded for the same period in previous years. For example, over 24,000 people left Puerto Rico during the first 6 months of 2013.
According to demographer Judith Rodriguez, the numbers are alarming and prove what was suspected, namely that Puerto Rican emigration to other places in search of a better quality of life is increasing at a huge pace.
Meanwhile, economist Gustavo Vélez said that the different administrations in the island have underestimated this situation despite the great impact it has on the economy and that it is necessary to address it immediately.
The Economy Between a Rock and a Hard Place
Economist Antonio Rosado told Noti Uno that the massive migration of Puerto Ricans that tripled last year originated with a structural problem in the island’s economy.
And there you have it again. A peaceful Muslim man slaughtered 12 people in cold blood. But, he did it peacefully in the name of Islam. I’m so sick of hearing that lie repeated every time one of these barbarians chops another head off, or takes part in a mass murder. Our politicians don’t live in the real world, just like they have no idea what the American people actually want them to do.
“This is a terrible act of violence, and one that we condemn in the strongest possible terms,” White House spokesman Josh Earnest told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on Wednesday morning, shortly after masked gunman killed 12 people at the offices of a satirical newspaper in Paris that has made fun of the Prophet Mohammed. French President Francois Hollande called Tuesday’s massacre a terror attack, but Earnest did not: He used the phrase “terrible act of violence” three times, and he also called Islam a “peaceful religion.”…
But, Bush and Obama said Islam is a religion of peace. How can it be that they would retaliate against a magazines anti-ISIS articles by killing more people. There is no such thing as a real moderate Muslim. The “moderate” Muslims are the ones standing in the streets cheering the death of the infidels. They are the one’s who don’t follow the koran and just watch from the sidelines. When will France wake up and do something about their Islam problem? Muslims procreate like polygamist rabbits, so maybe the outcome will be a Muslim France.
Ten people have been reported killed in a what appears to be a terrorist attack in the offices of the Charlie Hebdo satire magazine on boulevard Richard-Lenoir in Paris (Paris XI). A policeman has also been wounded.
At least 2 or 3 gunman are believed to have been involved, shooting Kalashnikov rifles.
According to La Figaaro, the gunman are on the run after a shootout with policemen.
The magazine has published anti-ISIS and Prophet Mohammed cartoons in the past…
Losing wars has consequences. Other enemies see it as an invitation to win a war against you, too. They see you as weak and incompetent. It doesn’t help that Obama is making deals with Iran and proposing putting an embassy there. Obama has succeeded in emboldening the entire Middle East and giving them the confidence that they can destroy America and Israel. There’s no reason not to try now. Obama is blind and inexperienced and he has cost us dearly around the world.
The commander of Iran’s notorious Basij forces declared Monday that the Islamic Republic’s ultimate goal is the destruction of America and Israel.
“Today there is no mandate to end our fight because Iran’s greatness in the region and the repeated losses by the Zionists and America are the proof of our fight up to today,” Gen. Mohammad Naghdi said, according to Fars News Agency. “Our ideal is not [nuclear] centrifuges but the destruction of the White House and the annihilation of Zionism [Israel].”
The regime’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, has also called for the continuation of the fight to destroy America, saying: “This battle will only end when the society can get rid of the oppressors’ front with America at the head of it, which has expanded its claws on human mind, body and thought. … This requires a difficult and lengthy struggle and a need for great strides.” …..
Hahaha and ha!! These liberal university elites were probably all for Obamacare and looked down their noses at the troglodytes who didn’t think it was a good idea. Now their having to pay more just like we said they would. Too late now losers.
Harvard faculty members are apoplectic over changes to their university-provided health-care plans related to Obamacare — after Harvard researchers spent years promoting the Affordable Care Act. The New York Times reports that faculty members voted unanimously in November to oppose a slight increase in out-of-pocket costs Harvard proposed for the plans. The university administration cited the need to confront the “added costs” caused by Obamacare provisions. Despite the protests, the university enacted the increase in January. That hasn’t stopped faculty from waxing apocalyptic about the change.
The Assisted Suicide law in the Netherlands was originally deemed necessary to allow the elderly to die with dignity. But, it’s increasingly being used to get rid of the undesirables in society. Babies who supposedly have mental illness are being euthanized because the parents think a little baby can be diagnosed with mental illness for life and they think it’s too painful of a life for their child. That’s exactly what Hitler did with the mentally ill. It’s even sicker that it’s being done in this day and age when there are a plethora of treatments for most mental illnesses that work and allow the person to live a normal life. They will pay for what they have done to the weakest among us, and pay dearly.
Although the law was designed to help terminally ill patients have a dignified death, the right to die has also been granted to a growing number of people who are physically healthy but have psychological problems. Official figures show that 13 patients suffering from mental illness were euthanized in 2011; by 2013 this number had risen to 42 patients.
And it is not just adults who are being euthanized. According to the Royal Dutch Medical Association, as many as 650 babies are killed by doctors each year because they are deemed to be in pain or facing a life of suffering.
Writing in the National Review, Wesley J Smith, senior fellow at the Discovery Institute’s Center on Human Exceptionalism has called on those who support assisted dying to “stop pretending assisted suicide is about terminal illness and admit it is much more about disability–which is why the disability rights movement remains so opposed as they are the primary targets. It is about allowing killing as an acceptable answer to many causes of suffering, whether terminal or chronic disease, disability, mental illness, or existential despair.”
I have several chronic diseases leading to disability. I guess in the Netherlands they wouldn’t consider me worthy of life. I personally think the problem in many cases is lazy, self absorbed parents, that see themselves as too good to parent a child with health issues. They’ll pay.
