Afghan Women Fear Rights
Will Erode as U.S. Leaves

Wall Street Journal, by Maria Abi-Habib

Herat, Afghanistan—Rokhshana, a 14-year-girl, has been behind bars here since March. She is serving a yearlong adultery sentence after what she describes as rape by her adult cousin, who remains a free man. (Snip)The U.S. says women´s rights will remain an important issue after the withdrawal, even though American officials acknowledge the limits of their waning influence. "Afghanistan is run by Afghans; we are significant partners," says Melanne Verveer, the U.S. Ambassador at large for global women´s issues. "We will continue to ensure that women´s rights are pivotal because of our partnership

I hope this pleases all the women who handed the election to The Won.

Liberals care nothing about women. Remember when Oprah refused to go to Afghanistan with Laura Bush and others showing support for Afghan women? I was done with Oprah at that point.

The Libs and the Libbers will promptly blame Bush and the MSM will back it up. This is getting too predictable.

Do they want the US to be their daily police guard, do they? It´s impractical and not possible. While I feel for these women, perhaps what´s needed is action by the government in Kabul that is supposed to be looking after its citizens and protecting them from criminals.

The instant we leave Afghanistan, the taliban will start to take over and dogs will be treated better than women. Obama will not get reengaged and the American supported Afghan government won´t last a year. Thousands of American and Afghan lives will have been wasted for what?
Melanne Verveer is typical of the airheads in the Obama administration who believe that wishing for something makes it so. If that was true Mitt Romney would be president and I would be handsome.

Dear Afghan Women: every time we read about a military operation we read about 3-4 women and a bunch of kids living under the roof of a terrorist.

Stop providing them aid and comfort and stop bearing their children (hint: they are groomed to become more terrorists) and we might start listening to you.

Our being there was never going to make life better for anyone except the Taliban and other criminals. It´s not a secret. We´ve been there to humiliate and kill ourselves. Certainly not to change the culture or fight a war. We´re guests there. We´ve given 9 or 10 billion dollars a month every month for over a decade to a country controlled by organized crime and the Taliban. Some goes to cronies here, but most of it goes to crime and the Taliban. For that privilege we get our best murdered and our country´s economy destroyed. There are terrible things happening in Islamic countries all the time. We´re only there to run green programs and diversity training.

Karzai is negotiating with the Taliban to save is own now very rich hide. What do you think will happen?

Obama is purging the military so we won´t even have competent senior officers running the military with which to stop Al Qaeda re-surgence in Afghanistan, let alone Pakistan.

This administration can´t keep secrects and you can only do so much with video games (drone strikes).

Those poor women are doomed.

Send a letter to Jay Leno´s wife asking why she is a democrat. Perhaps the constant 8 years of her husband mocking, President Bush and then 4 years of supporting Obama were a significant part of why you are in this position. All the liberal parties in NY and LA won´t make a speck of difference to your grim future.

The Hague-—President Barack Obama, seeking to shift the trajectory of the crisis in Ukraine, will press U.S. allies Monday to suspend Russia from the Group of Eight leading nations and to adopt more sweeping sanctions against the Russian economy, administration officials said. Mr. Obama will argue for those steps in an emergency meeting Monday evening with leaders of the world´s top seven economies, held on the sidelines of a nuclear security summit in The Hague, officials said. "We believe that there is no reason for the G-7 countries to engage with Russia going forward based on its behavior," Ben Rhodes,

Advertising executives didn’t need a scientific study to surmise what would draw young adults to ads that encourage people to buy health insurance through the Affordable Care Act.They went with skin – lots of it. “He may not be naked. He could be wearing a Speedo,” Wendy Wolf said with a laugh, referring to an ad showing a young man who is otherwise unclothed but covered by a strategically placed laptop computer. “Dude, it’s time to get covered,” proclaims the ad for www.enroll207.com that ran this week in the Portland Phoenix alternative newspaper.

Fail to Pay First Premium

Washington--One in five people who signed up for health insurance under the new health care law failed to pay their premiums on time and therefore did not receive coverage in January, insurance companies and industry experts say. Paying the first month’s premium is the final step in completing an enrollment. Under federal rules, people must pay the initial premium to have coverage take effect. In view of the chaotic debut of the federal marketplace and many state exchanges, the White House urged insurers to give people more time, and many agreed to do so. But, insurers said, some people missed

‘Aid in Dying’ Movement
Takes Hold in Some States

DENVER — Helping the terminally ill end their lives, condemned for decades as immoral, is gaining traction. Banned everywhere but Oregon until 2008, it is now legal in five states. Its advocates, who have learned to shun the term “assisted suicide,” believe that as baby boomers watch frail parents suffer, support for what they call the “aid in dying” movement will grow further. In January, the New Mexico Supreme Court authorized doctors to provide lethal prescriptions and declared a constitutional right for “a competent, terminally ill patient to choose aid in dying.” Last May, the Vermont Legislature passed a law

Washinton--A Congressional Budget Office analysis released Tuesday predicted that the Affordable Care Act would shrink the work force by the equivalent of more than two million full-time positions and recharged the political debate over the health care law, providing Republican opponents fresh lines of attack and putting Democrats on the defensive. The nonpartisan budget office’s analysis, part of a regular update to its budget projections, was far more complicated than the Republican attack lines it generated. Congressional Republican leaders called the findings “devastating,” “terrible” and proof that the health care law was a job killer. (Snip)Senator Joe Manchin III, Democrat

Secretary of State John Kerry must be really desperate to win the Nobel Peace Prize. So much so, he seems willing to continually force the state of Israel into untenable positions that put its security at risk. On this very topic last month, Israeli Minister of Defense Moshe Yaalon said Kerry "came here very determined and operates based upon an unfathomable obsession and Messianic feeling . . . "Throughout the recent months, there is no negotiation between us and the Palestinians, but rather between us and the Americans. The only thing that can ´save´ us is that John Kerry will

War On Banks: Attorney General Eric Holder has opened up a new front against car lenders and has forged an alliance with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau to frame them for racism, too. We don´t use the term "frame" capriciously, certainly not like Holder uses the charge of racism. His department and the president´s new consumer credit watchdog agency, CFPB, have announced a new settlement with Ally Bank for nearly $100 million. It´s the largest fair lending deal against the auto industry and the third-largest ever to resolve charges of lending discrimination. Throw in four new mortgage-lender settlements over equally

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a
