Up for LGBT Rights All
Around the World

Cybercast News Service, by Fred Lucas

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 12/3/2012 2:04:44 PM

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said last week that she has stood up for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and and Transgender rights all around the world. “Memories are short, and we can’t afford to rest on the laurels of the past,” Clinton said Thursday at an event co-hosted by the State Department and Foreign Policy Magazine. “So it’s our job to reintroduce a post-Iraq generation of young people around the world to principled American leadership.” “That is part of why I’ve logged so many miles over the last four years going to something

Comments:
The State Department is so busy "standing up for LGBT rights" that they have no time to deal with important matters like security for their embassies.

Standing up for LBGT rights is not in the purview of the Department of State. Stick to your own knitting, PIAPS.

The U.S. made history by electing the first black president in 2008.

History (or "Herstory") can be made again in 2016...
when Americans may elect the first lesbian president.

Can you see Wacky Baracky passing the proverbial baton to Herself... ?

Meanwhile, BillyBob Klintoon will pass another cigar to an intern...
And Susan Rice can take over this LGBT agenda stuff....

In the US lesbians, gays, and transgenders(whatever the hell that is) have the same rights as everyone else. They just don´t have "special" rights. In some countries women, children, Christians, etc. have NO rights. Pay attention to that Hitlery. You ugly, worthless, walking example of the end of the America we once loved.

Romans 1:26-27

"For most of us who seriously honor Scripture these verses still stand as the capital New Testament text that unequivocally prohibits homosexual behavior. More prohibitively, this text has been taken to mean that even a same-sex inclination is reprehensible, so that a type of humanity known as ´homosexual´ has steadily become the object of contempt and discrimination."

Will Hillary still be standing up for LGBT rights when she stands before God?

God will have the His Way as stated in His Word. His eternal Kingdom is only ours when we believe/trust in Jesus, sent to set the captives free.

God proclaims His way for US to live, not to be demanded by Hillary/Obama administration.

We are in perilous times.

Lot chose to live in the land of sinners and was only saved because of Abraham begging God for his family´s freedom. Yet, Lot´s wife looked back (missing what she had) and turned into a pillar of salt. Many salt images are on the horizon.

Pray for America! We deserve better than what we are getting.

Sadly, we have only ourselves to blame, for as a nation we elected those who do not serve God or believe in His Word.

Look at our money and see "In God We Trust"! How long will that last? If Hillary and Obama have their way this too will be stolen from US.

The Nativity scene is not acceptable today! God´s Son is being denied His rightful place in our lives!

God knows His own and are saved! Too bad Hillary/Obama have declared their contempt/disfavor of God´s will/way

Pray for America, we are very needy?

Conservative talk radio host and scholar Mark Levin appeared on a taping of Breitbart News Sunday and said that the permanent political class should fear the Tea Party movement, which will only gain in strength in the years ahead. Speaking with Breitbart News Executive Chairman and host Stephen K. Bannon after he keynoted an event honoring the five-year anniversary of the movement, Levin said that the Tea Party has already rocked the political system in just five years because those in it want to clear out the crony capitalists on both sides of the aisle.

House Pressures Obama to Dismantle
Iran’s Enrichment Program
Washington Free Beacon, by Adam Kredo    Original Article

Two top House lawmakers called on the Obama administration Monday to ensure that any final agreement with Iran requires it to dismantle all “weapons-related infrastructure,” including its uranium enrichment program. Reps. Eric Cantor (R., Va.) and Steny Hoyer (D., Md.) authored a letter to President Barack Obama on Monday asking him to ensure that Iran shut down nearly all of its nuclear-related facilities under a final deal. The letter comes as top Senate leaders push a similar letter to the president that was initiated by the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), which is holding its annual policy conference this week in

Politico reports that Marco Rubio is “seeking to rehabilitate his image with much of the GOP base” by falling back on “staunch conservative positions” such as a “more aggressive U.S. response to Russia in the Ukraine crisis.” I hope that denouncing passivity in response to aggression by our adversaries remains a staunch conservative position. Rubio explained that “many of my supporters maybe disagreed with me on immigration — and disagreed strongly — but they understand that I’ve been involved in other issues that are important for the country.” The concern, though, is not lack of involvement by Rubio on the right

On her Saturday night broadcast of "Justice with Judge Jeanine" on the Fox News Channel, host Jeanine Pirro railed against President Barack Obama´s posture toward Russia´s aggression in the Ukraine. Pirro questioned how Obama could take a stance while having his own problems with the perception of weakness. “Really, Mr. President?” Pirro said. “What are you going to do?

Marcia McNutt, former head of the U.S. Geological Survey under President Barack Obama until 2013 and now top editor at Science magazine, is no longer opposed to the approval of the Keystone XL Pipeline. “I believe it is time to move forward on the Keystone XL pipeline to transport crude oil from the tar sands deposits of Alberta, Canada, and from the Williston Basin in Montana and North Dakota to refineries on the U.S. Gulf Coast,” McNutt wrote in a Feb. 21 editorial in the magazine.

The Senate will soon vote on President Obama´s nomination of former NAACP Legal Defense Fund official Debo Adegbile to head the Justice Department´s Civil Rights Division. There are a number of reasons many Republicans oppose the nomination, most prominent among them Adegbile´s passionate and continued advocacy on behalf of Philadelphia cop-killer Mumia Abu-Jamal. But one objection to the nomination has received little public notice, and it involves a quiet but growing controversy over the issue of criminal background checks. It´s not unusual for businesses to conduct a check before hiring new employees. If the check uncovers that the applicant has, say,

Bob Costas joined Bill O’Reilly Monday night to defend his coverage of Vladimir Putin and Russia during the Sochi Olympics from conservative critics. Costas dismissed the whole thing as a “non-issue” and a “flimsy pretext for a controversy.” He said that he was “repeatedly” critical of Putin’s regime and human rights record on a number of occasions during the Olympics. O’Reilly, who defended Costas from those aforementioned critics last month, asked why they would bring up politics at all. Costas argued it was important for the framing of the games, because if they were successful, “it would burnish the image of

She found a sparring partner in the American Enterprise Institute’s Danielle Pletka, who defended the conservative criticism of the president. “Republicans are practically cheering for Vladimir Putin today,” Kohn said at the top of the show’s second segment. “He’s given them a new excuse to bash President Obama.” She went on to describe how Republicans are all over the media arguing that Putin would not be trying to invade Ukraine if Obama was

A new and comprehensive comparison of health insurance options offered by Obamacare versus private websites finds that President Obama´s program offers less choice and higher prices than promised by the White House and leading Democrats. Adding to the list of broken health care promises, the study from the National Center for Public Policy Research found that there were more and cheaper options available on websites outside the health insurance exchange in 2013 than on healthcare.gov and state Obamacare exchanges. The report, "Obamacare Exchanges: Less Choice, Higher Prices,” looked at options available for a 27-year-old single person and a 57-year-old couple in metropolitan

The Supreme Court has declined to hear a case about a German home-schooling family who is seeking asylum status in the United States. The court rejected the case Monday without comment. Devout Christians Uwe and Hannelore Romeike have been seeking asylum because German law does not permit home-schooling and requires children to attend state-approved schools. The Romeikes and their six children moved to Tennessee in 2008 to avoid hefty fines and possible jail time. The family initially was granted asylum by a U.S. immigration judge. That judgment was overturned by an immigration panel, which said the family was not persecuted and was not eligible

FOR FIVE YEARS, President Obama has led a foreign policy based more on how he thinks the world should operate than on reality. It was a world in which “the tide of war is receding” and the United States could, without much risk, radically reduce the size of its armed forces. Other leaders, in this vision, would behave rationally and in the interest of their people and the world. Invasions, brute force, great-power games and shifting alliances — these were things of the past. Secretary of State John F. Kerry displayed this mindset on ABC’s “This Week” Sunday when he

He leads a company that some would consider the epitome of ruthless global capitalism. But Apple chief executive Tim Cook has shocked some in the US with an impassioned attack on the single-minded pursuit of profit – and a direct appeal to climate-change deniers not to buy shares in his firm. Eyewitnesses said Cook, who succeeded Steve Jobs as boss of the technology giant in 2011, was visibly angry as he took on a group of right-wing investors during a question-and-answer session at a shareholders’ meeting.

WASHINGTON—Police arrested hundreds of people who strapped themselves to the White House fence on Sunday to protest the proposed Keystone XL oil pipeline. The protesters were mostly college students who participated in a peaceful march that began at Georgetown University and ended outside the White House. They chanted "climate justice now" and carried signs with slogans such as "don´t tarnish the earth" in an effort to persuade President Barack Obama to reject the pipeline. They say it will worsen global warming. Protesters were passionate but quite orderly. Police were waiting for them with buses and vans to speed the process.
