Meriam Ibrahim: Sudan ´to free´
death row woman

BBC News, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:mitzi, 5/31/2014 1:33:05 PM

Sudanese authorities are to free a woman who was sentenced to death for having abandoned the Islamic faith, a foreign ministry official says. Meriam Ibrahim, who gave birth to a daughter in custody, will be freed in a few days, the official told the BBC. Abdullahi Alzareg, an under-secretary at the foreign ministry, said Sudan guaranteed religious freedom and was committed to protecting the woman. Khartoum has been facing international condemnation over the death sentence. In an interview with The Times newspaper, British Prime Minister David Cameron described the ruling as "barbaric" and out of step with today´s world. The UK

Øvomit could have had her freed with one phone call. But since she is a Christian, he wasn´t about to get involved.

But you know he will still try to find some way to spin this into how great he is.

I´m beginning to think that that Marine being held in Mexico needs to claim that he is a homosexual muslim, and then Øvomit will make sure he is freed and back home in a matter of hours...

Our parish has an on-going program of support for persecuted Christians around the world. We were urged by our bishop to write letters to the Sudanese embassy in D.C., urging them to free Meriam and her children. We were told that the could be influenced by international and national efforts to flood this office with our pleas. I wonder what effect this campaign had, and whether it was even more effective than the President´s pathetic involvement.

This is the best news of the day, though it will be even better when we know she and her two children are actually free and, hopefully, on their way out of Sudan with her husband. Nothing was mentioned in this particular article, but isn´t she an MD? What a brave young woman.

Good News! I´m sure the hashtags did it because our insolent government sure didn´t.

Now get the Marine out of that Mexican hellhole. Millions of illegal aliens cross our border carrying who knows what, and a Marine makes a wrong turn with US legal weapons in his car and the Mexicans are all over him. Tourist travel to Mexico should dry up. Patriots shouldn´t go there.

The other day I listened to one smug bureaucrat explain to we peasants why the Marine is still incarcerated. We must learn and accept that the Mexicans had pride, and didn´t like being told what to do by the USA. We must not threaten or belittle their laws. That would cause them to lose face. WHAT!? No wonder other countries have contempt for us. If a Russian marine was grabbed like this, do you see Putin being afraid to hurt Mexico,s feelings.

Obama Lets a Crisis Go to Waste
Breitbart Big Government, by Charles Hurt    Original Article

Whatever happened to the Obama administration’s guiding principle never to let a serious crisis go to waste? Ex-White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel pronounced this shockingly brazen political principle before a group of Wall Street executives in November 2008. He said this even before President Obama took office. It was after that historic election, a time when the president was riding high on a wave of good will and political euphoria that few American politicians have ever enjoyed. It was also a time when the president’s party controlled both chambers of Congress and could have approved just about any

SINGAPORE — A children´s book inspired by a real-life story of two male penguins raising a baby chick in New York´s zoo has been deemed inappropriate by state-run Singapore libraries, and the conservative city-state´s information minister said he supports the decision to destroy all copies alongside two other titles. The National Library Board, which runs 26 public libraries in Singapore, pulled from the shelves and said it would "pulp" the copies of three titles, citing complaints their content goes against Singapore´s family values. The books are "And Tango Makes Three," about a male-male penguin couple in the Central Park Zoo;

An Egyptian cleric formerly known as the "preacher of the revolution" during the revolt against President Hosni Mubarak warned Egyptian television viewers this week that Muslim Brotherhood sheiks have issued a fatwa permitting "anal jihad" for terrorists far from their wives, which is exactly what it sounds like. (snip) In another example of homosexuality surfacing as an alleged element of jihad, a parody of the jihadist group The Islamic State (formerly the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham) on Palestinian television implied that its members were gay, calling them "ISISsy"s.

   

 



 
Obama’s Law Professor: ‘I

Surviving Next Legal Challenge

President Obama’s old Harvard Law professor, Laurence Tribe, said that he “wouldn’t bet the family farm” on Obamacare’s surviving the legal challenges to an IRS rule about who is eligible for subsidies that are currently working their way through the federal courts. “I don’t have a crystal ball,” Tribe told the Fiscal Times. “But I wouldn’t bet the family farm on this coming out in a way that preserves Obamacare.” The law’s latest legal problem is that, as written, people who enroll in Obamacare through the federal exchange aren’t eligible for subsidies. The text of the law only provides subsidies

It’s the revenge of the polar vortex! A frigid cold air system will be moving through the eastern United States next week, leading to intense weather conditions reminiscent of last year’s dreaded polar vortex. The approaching weather system is expected to bring overwhelmingly below-average temperatures to parts of the northern and northeastern US next week, beginning Monday or Tuesday, according to the Washington Post. States located in areas such as the High Plains, the central US and the Great Lakes could see temperatures 20 to 30 degrees below their current averages. That means people normally dealing with scorching temperatures sometimes

A new Economist/YouGov poll shows that the mainstream media and Democrats are way out of step with the recent Supreme Court Hobby Lobby decision protecting the First Amendment religious rights of people, even after they commit the sin of opening a business. Though we have been assured the Court´s decision is a winning War on Women issue for Democrats just 4 months out from the midterm elections, the poll shows that in reality women are split on the issue, with only 46% disapproving of the Court decision, while 43% approve. Hot Air´s Ed Morrissey looked deeper at the poll´s crosstabs

Congressional candidate Mike Dickinson (D-VA) is offering $100,000 to anyone who can provide him with a nude photograph of Texas Tech Cheerleader Kendall Jones. On July 5 Breitbart News reported Jones was receiving death threats and had become the object of a "Kill Kendall Jones" Facebook page because of photos she posted from African hunts. On July 9, Facebook removed all Jones hunting photos and later that day, after public outcry, also shut down the "Kill Kendall Jones" page. Now Dickinson wants a nude photo of Jones.

This week, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), immigrants rights groups, and a prominent law firm sued the United States government in a class-action lawsuit demanding legal representation for illegal immigrant children in deportation hearings. According to the ACLU, the "complaint charges the U.S. Department of Justice, Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Department of Health and Human Services, Executive Office for Immigration Review, and Office of Refugee Resettlement with violating the U.S. Constitution´s Fifth Amendment Due Process Clause and the Immigration and Nationality Act’s provisions requiring a ´full and fair hearing´ before an immigration judge."

As the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) leaves a path of destroyed churches and mosques in its wake, some wonder whether Mecca may also be in line for destruction. According to Fox News, ISIS "jihadists, led by self-proclaimed descendant of Prophet Muhammad Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, have already bulldozed or blown up some of the most sacred places in Iraq." Georgetown University professor Yvonne Haddad says ISIS sees "themselves as the last defenders of Islamic civilization and want to eradicate anything they see as an enemy of Islam, and any Muslim they perceive as compromising with the West."

A year ago The View co-host Sherri Shepherd announced she and her husband Lamar Sally were going to have a baby using a surrogate. The procedure was to use Shepherd’s eggs and the womb of a stranger. Shepherd said at the time that she had found “a drama-free uterus” and that “we’re putting in our eggs and Sal’s sperm and we’ll let you know how it progresses.” It turns out not to have progressed very well either for a baby or for the marriage. TMZ reported this week that Shepherd’s eggs and Sally’s sperm did not work and that she

House Republicans are getting more traction with that idea than impeaching the president himself. enator Ted Cruz (R., Texas) and a group of House lawmakers are building a case for impeaching Attorney General Eric Holder. (snip) Gosar says the process should begin with the House taking a vote of no confidence in Holder, before the August recess (141 lawmakers have co-sponsored his no-confidence resolution). If, as is nearly certain, Obama were to ignore such a no-confidence vote and refuse to remove Holder during the August recess, then impeachment proceedings would begin in September, according to Gosar’s plan.

Under the guise of “protect[ing] women’s health from corporate interference,” the bill that Senate Democrats are proposing in response to the Hobby Lobby ruling would deprive religious entities of all religious-liberty protections against having the HHS mandate directly imposed on them.

President Obama on Thursday claimed he is “not that partisan of a guy” as he mocked calls in the Republican Party for his impeachment. The president spent much of his address in Austin, Texas, hammering congressional Republicans, saying they have "blocked or voted down every serious idea to strengthen the middle class." “I’m just telling the truth now," Obama said. "I don´t have to run for office again so I can just let her rip.” He teed off on Republicans such as Sarah Palin who have suggested in recent days that he be impeached, and dismissed Speaker John Boehner´s (R-Ohio) proposed lawsuit

His top staffers are promoting these stops on Twitter with the hashtag #TheBearIsLoose — a term one of Obama’s aides coined in 2008 when the candidate would defy his schedule.

She also called not only for the U.S. government to process minors arriving illegally from Central America on a “case-by-case basis" but for the government to “treat the Mexican kids the way they treat the non-contiguous country kids.” “Quite frankly, I would rather they treat the Mexican kids the way they treat the non-contiguous country kids,” Pelosi said at a Capitol Hill press conference on Thursday, claiming that sending these children back to their home countries would be like “sending them back into a

SAN DIEGO - The family that drew national attention when they were rescued at sea off their sailboat, Rebel Heart, in April is finally setting the record straight. Charlotte and Eric Kaufman and their two daughters were about 1,000 miles west of Cabo San Lucas in the Sea of Cortez when 1-year old Lyra became sick. That was when their adventure of a lifetime turned into a nightmare. It began with a fever, then a rash and then Lyra became lethargic. That was when the couple used their satellite cell phone to call a doctor. He advised them to begin treating Lyra

A cargo train used by Mexicans and Central Americans to travel toward the U.S. border derailed in the southern Mexican state of Oaxaca on Wednesday, stranding about 1,300 migrants, emergency services said. Many of the migrants aboard were young people and nobody was injured when the train nicknamed "the Beast" came off the tracks, a spokesman for local emergency services said. Since last October, more than 50,000 unaccompanied minors, most from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras, have been caught illegally crossing the southwest border of the United States.

The facts are simple. The IRS systematically targeted conservative and Tea Party groups after their activism proved decisive in the 2010 midterm elections—Obama’s famous “shellacking.” The effects of this targeting were widespread. Some Tea Party groups were neutered in the months before the 2012 presidential election. Few of the explanations or justifications of this targeting provided by IRS leaders and Obama administration officials have held up. IRS officials at first denied that any targeting had taken place. That was false. They later claimed that the targeting had involved only low-level employees in the Cincinnati office. That was false. They argued

The next time you hear politicians denounce Barack Obama as a lawless, imperial president with a scandal-riddled administration, ask them what they’re going to do about it. Their gnashing of teeth over Obama’s self-granted omnipotence is repetitive. Let’s agree with our ninth president, William Henry Harrison, who said there is nothing more corrupting, nothing more destructive than the exercise of unlimited power. We understand the problem. The only way for politicians to fix it is with a little less talk and a lot more action. The Constitution provides the remedy for a president who commits “high crimes and misdemeanors.”
