After Boko Haram kidnapping:
What does the US stand for?

Christian Science Monitor, by Dambisa Moyo

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 5/14/2014 1:27:42 AM

It took three weeks for President Obama to publicly address the crisis of more than 250 Nigerian school girls kidnapped on April 14, and to pledge to send modest support. (Snip) It is naive to ignore the mounting evidence that, beyond considering its own strategic and national self-interest, the United States does not have an operating philosophy when it comes to defending human rights. Its decision to remain silent after Egypt’s democratically elected president was overthrown in a coup last year and its long-standing engagement with countries like Saudi Arabia, whose cultural ethos/philosophy in many respects runs counter to American

The kenyan has a philosophy, but sadly it is to protect muslims and sacrifice and prosecute Christians at all times......

Although I am in the short run powerless to do anything about it Ms. Moyo´s column shames me.

Please look her up if you haven´t done so. She is an extremely intelligent independent thinker and I hope that she has a future role in one or more African nations that rise up from poverty and prosper. She understands what it takes and what is at stake.

The world says -
My children are hungry.

America says -
Gay Marriage.

The world says -
My children are sick.

America says -
Abortion.

The world says -
My children have no home.

America says -
White Privilege.

The world says -

America says -

If the world

perhaps
it is because
America

Sorry, but this featured article is an ideological mess. "Its decision to remain silent after Egypt’s democratically elected president was overthrown in a coup last year" means America´s decision to not oppose a coup against Morsi, the democratically elected Muslim Brotherhood president of Egypt. The Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt was doing to Christians in Egypt what Boko Haram is doing is doing to them in Nigeria.

Evil must be destroyed and we aren´t the only ones capable of doing this. The civilized world must unite to destroy groups like Boko Haram. You will never win the hearts and minds of those who would commit such acts against young girls. Theirs is an ideology wrapped in religion proselytized by extreme violence. Just as cancer must be cut out of the body in order to live so must this religious/politically motivated cancer be destroyed. The world can´t ignore this behavior. They also cannot just look to the United States to fight these battles. The people of the world need to take stock. Do they want more of this or will they stand united to destroy it. It is not going away.

We do know a few things about al Baraq Hussein Obama. At birth he was named after Muhammad´s horse and he proudly reverted to using that same name again as an adult.

We know that he supports the Muslim Brotherhood. We know he had nothing to say about Christian Churches being burned to the ground in Egypt or Christian schoolgirls being beheaded in Indonesia.

Conclusion: It´s not safe to be a Christian anywhere in the world today.

An April 2014 poll found fewer than 20 percent of Americans calling for more active engagement in the world, and nearly half demanding less.

That is a direct result of our educational system which did not teach our history in a positive way. To the NEA and liberals (but I repeat myself), all wars are bad -- there is no good reason for America to help the oppressed in other nations.

But let one un-PC remark slip from the lips of a Christian about homosexuality, and the troops line up in firing-squad precision.

Our values as Americans have taken a quantum leap downward under Obama´s reign of error and everyone suffers, including the people they claim to want to help. But that´s among the biggest problems: Claims are are they have. Claims and promises, and we know how that´s been working out.

If you like your country´s being ridiculed and not being taken seriously, you can keep it that way.
If you enjoy inertia on the world stage, you can keep it.
If you want the Statue of Liberty torn down, stick around.

The US has no more business in Nigeria than Mexican troops in Arizona. Nigeria has a military and a government. And now reports of Nigerian Christians taking justice into their own hands. At least some are not "dependent" on government or American aid.

"What does the US stand for?"

There´s the unkindest cut of all, isn´t it? It´s no longer just "What does Obama stand for?" Now we, and the entire history of this greatest nation ever, are all judged by this malevolent, narcissistic, stealth Marxist. He has ruined our hard-earned reputation to the world and he has corrupted the will and mindset of a significant number of our people.

He is a cancer on this country. And he´s metastasizing his malignancy throughout our land.

If we sent in armed troops to rescue the girls and killed every last islamist animal involved, we would be hated and criticized by the entire world but we would be respected. I prefer that over being thought of as useless cowards. That´s an appropriate description for obama and his flying monkeys but apparently the world has forgotten the distinction between them and real Americans.

Let me clarify my earlier post (#16), after re-reading it, it dawned on me that context would help. I am not in favor of us sending any troops to “bring our girls back”, my belief is that the presence of a strong military can prevent a challenge before it can occur. Hashtags and red lines are things that can be ignored and scoffed at, a cruise missile or drone strike is the attention getter. The photo of Mooch holding her sign has demonstrated that, with zero at the helm, we are indeed a paper tiger.

Let’s face it, we are more inclined to succumb to government agencies because they have guns. I believe in a strong equipped military to defend our citizens against outside threats, but I abhor the threatening posture our government uses against us at home. We supposedly are our government. I can accept having a Swat Team for a county, but not one for each little burg or city. We wouldn’t need Swat Teams if we could restore respect for the rule of law instead of worrying about being PC.

FTA: “Its decision to remain silent after Egypt’s democratically elected president was overthrown in a coup last year”

Why even read any further? The “Christian” Science Monitor taking the side of Morsi and the anti-Christian Muslim Brotherhood? For the meaningless reason that the Egyptian people were duped into voting their would-be slave masters into power, but quickly wised up and sent them packing before they could complete their consolidation of power and institute sharia? Did no one at CSM, including this writer, hear the chants of “no more beards”? Has CSM joined modern liberals in their elevation and worship of elections as determinants of morality to the exclusion of God and reason? Demanding a clear moral stance from the US after siding with the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt would be laughable if it weren’t so maddeningly obtuse.

What does the US stand for? What does the Christian Science Monitor stand for?

Hagel quietly notifies Congress
of transfer of 6 Gitmo detainees
Washington Times, by Jessica Chasmar    Original Article

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel quietly notified Congress last week that the military is set to transfer six Guantanamo Bay prisoners to Uruguay as soon as next month, The New York Times revealed Wednesday. The deal has been waiting for Mr. Hagel’s approval since March, but stalled after the Obama administration received a wave of backlash for releasing five Taliban detainees to Qatar in exchange for the release Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. The administration did not give Congress 30-days notice in that deal, but argued it was still legal because any delay could have risked Sgt. Bergdahl’s life.

The energy-rich country on the eastern tip of the Arabian Peninsula announced plans Wednesday to send the first unmanned Arab spaceship to Mars in 2021. The ruler of the UAE´s emirate of Dubai, Sheik Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, said the mission will prove the Arab world is still capable of delivering scientific contributions to humanity, despite the many conflicts across the Middle East.

California Death Penalty
Unconstitutional, Federal Judge Says

Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 7/16/2014 5:07:45 PM     Post Reply
A federal judge in Southern California ruled Wednesday that California’s death penalty was unconstitutional. The “dysfunctional administration of California’s death penalty system,” wrote Judge Cormac J. Carney of United States District Court, has led to “inordinate and unpredictable” delays in the execution of inmates. The delays, the judge wrote, means that sentences are carried out against only “a trivial few of those sentenced to death.” In essence, he wrote, sentences by juries have been transformed to “life in prison, with the remote possibility of death.” In making his ruling, Judge Carney vacated the death sentence of

Shannon Guess Richardson, 36, was also ordered to pay $367,000 restitution as part of a plea bargain for pleading guilty in December to one count of developing, producing, possessing and transferring a biological agent for use as a weapon.

Israel agreed Wednesday to halt its airstrikes on Gaza for five hours in order to allow humanitarian aid, following a request from the United Nations Relief and Works Agency. The military said in a statement Wednesday that it would hold its fire for five hours starting at 10:00 a.m. local time on Thursday. It warns however that it will retaliate "firmly and decisively" if Hamas or other militant groups launch attacks on Israel during that time. The cease-fire request came from U.N.

Washington - The White House is defying a congressional subpoena by keeping a top political aide to President Barack Obama from testifying at a hearing Wednesday. The White House is arguing that Obama adviser David Simas is immune from subpoena by the House Oversight Committee in its investigation into the political office that he directs. White House counsel Neil Eggleston says in a letter to Oversight Chairman Darrell Issa that the Simas subpoena threatens the constitutional separation of powers. White House lawyers spent an hour and 15 minutes Tuesday briefing the committee´s staff behind closed doors on the political office´s

Almost three dozen Disney theme park workers have been arrested for alleged kiddie-sex crimes since 2006, according to a broadcast report. The 35 busts have been for possession of child porn or trying to meet a minor for sex, CNN found after combing through law enforcement and court records. So far, 32 of those busted have been convicted and the other cases are pending. Two cases of child porn allegedly happened on Disney property.

The temporary lifeline for the nation’s construction workers passed 367-55, with 186 Democrats joining 181 Republicans on the vote.

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.
