Dispute over religious faith sparks
spat in Arkansas Senate race

Washington Examiner (DC), by Rebecca Berg

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 7/3/2014 10:19:23 PM

Democratic Sen. Mark Pryor´s campaign demanded an apology Wednesday from Republican Rep. Tom Cotton after he questioned the depth of Pryor´s religious faith. In an interview Tuesday with a Fayetteville, Ark., radio station, Cotton was asked about the Supreme´s Court decision to allow some businesses to opt out of health coverage for contraceptives, citing religious freedoms. "Barack Obama and Mark Pryor think that faith is only something that happens at 11 o´clock on Sunday mornings," Cotton said. "That´s when we worship, but faith is what we live every single day."

Isn´t this the same Senator Pryor (D-political family legacy) who complained that Mr. Cotton felt "entitled" to Pryor´s seat in the Senate because of Cotton´s military service?

Oh, and the other thing.

The only thing Barack Obama, may his name be praised and his word be law (just practicing for the thought police) thinks about at 11 am Sunday morning is where he´s going to play golf.

And a lot of us go to church long before 11 am Sunday.

Cotton campaign spokesperson David Ray sent a statement to Channel 7 News from Cotton in response to the backlash.

"Senator Pryor is a man of faith and practices it with commendable openness, which I respect, but I wish he would respect Arkansans´ right to practice our faith. Instead, Senator Pryor and President Obama still defend Obamacare even after the Supreme Court said it violated freedom of religion. Senator Pryor supports taxpayer-funded abortion and late-term abortion and would force Christians to pay for abortions despite their deeply held religious beliefs. That´s a real attack on faith," Cotton said.

Congressman Cotton should not apologize for what he said. He didn´t question Pryor´s belief in Christ.

Pryor, who put out a Christmas ad about his faith, is the one that has made his faith a political issue for the very reason Cotton mentions in this statement.

Just like Pelosi and Kerry are "practicing" Catholics and Reid is a Mormon.

You cant be a liberal democrat and a follower of any non-new age religion.

How does a grand jury

St. Louis Post Dispatch (MO), by Kim Bell    Original Article

What goes on inside a grand jury room is secret. The prosecutor presents the evidence. No judge is in the room. No defense lawyer. The accused is invited to testify, but his lawyer can´t be in the room. Grand juries are known for doing what a prosecutor wants. As the old saying goes, a grand jury would indict a ham sandwich if that´s what the prosecutor asked. Prosecutors feeling the heat in a controversial case, some say, can avoid making a decision and give it to a grand jury. The standing grand jury in St. Louis County meets every Wednesday during a

The U.S. State Department has asked for 300 additional American military personnel to beef up security at the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad and at U.S. facilities at the Baghdad airport, a senior U.S. official told NBC News on Wednesday. The request was described as under consideration by the Pentagon. The official could not identify or discuss any additional threat to those facilities or to American personnel in Iraq. The U.S. military has 849 personnel in Iraq. The early planning suggests that about 150 of the personnel would be Marines from the 22nd Marine Expeditionary Unit, which is aboard the USS

Brooke Baldwin played an exasperated host to CNN commentator Marc Lamont Hill and radio host Larry Elder, whose discussion over Barack Obama’s actions on the Ferguson protests quickly, quickly fell apart into them yelling past each other for the entire segment. It started off as two men taking two very different positions on the root causes of Ferguson: Hill argued that the debate should be centered on institutionalized racism in law enforcement, while Elder countered that the problem lay within the black community and the lack of paternal figures. But when the conversation turned towards mental health in the African-American

After a week of rioting and confrontations in Ferguson, Missouri, filmmaker Spike Lee said he hoped that "things will really blow up" if Officer Darren Wilson is tried and the people of Ferguson are unhappy with the verdict. Lee made his incendiary remarks on Tuesday´s Anderson Cooper 360 on CNN, saying that, even though he does not have the facts, "something smells bad in Ferguson, and it´s not just tear gas." "And I´m not saying that people should burn down stuff and riot and loot," Lee told host Anderson Cooper. "But this is not the first time we´ve seen this. And

The New York Times has big news on the biggest story in the country today, but as Noah Rothman at Hot Air discovered, the Times buried that news 26 paragraphs deep.

A Brief History of President

Once again, we´re reminded that President Obama is aloof and hasn´t made friends in Congress, even with his fellow Democrats, thanks to a new story from The New York Times. The Times story interviews several Democrats, including Sen. Harry Reid´s chief of staff, Sen. Joe Manchin and others, most of whom grumbled about wishing Obama would try harder to help them out. Obama´s aversion to schmoozing isn´t new, something The Times admits, writing "grumbling by lawmakers about a president is nothing unusual." But! What is striking now is the way prominent Democrats’ views of Mr. Obama’s shortcomings are spilling out

An elite group of around 500 sperm donors has been exposed as being the biological fathers to more than 6,200 children. The men have all been successful donors in at least ten separate cases since they made their donations. The records also show that 15 of these men are now the fathers to 20 or more children. The figures, released by the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority (HFEA,) cover donor insemination records held by clinics across the country.

President Obama condemned the beheading of journalist James Foley and ISIS in a strongly worded statement to reporters moments ago, but didn’t offer specifics on how the U.S. would react policy-wise to ISIS killing Americans. “Today, the entire world is appalled by the brutal murder of Jim Foley by the terrorist group, ISIL. Jim was a journalist, a son, a brother, and a friend. He reported from difficult and dangerous places, bearing witness to the lives of people a world away,” Obama said from Martha’s Vineyard. “…Earlier today, I spoke to the Foleys and told them that we are all

FERGUSON, Missouri—It´s not easy running a business with riots going on. In the ten days since Michael Brown was shot in Ferguson, Missouri, the small businesses that line the streets have suffered a major financial blow from the constant rioting, vandalism, and looting, owners said. Looters and vandals have smashed windows of store fronts, spray painted graffiti, stolen property, and burned down businesses. Some stores re-opened with plywood plugging up their smashed windows. The words “open for business” are often spray painted on the plywood, but many customers are too afraid to even come. One such sign for “Yolo! Botique”

WASHINGTON — Eric Holder talks about the nation´s civil rights struggles in a way no previous U.S. attorney general could — by telling his own family story. As he increasingly pushes his Justice Department to protect voting rights and end unfair prison sentences and police brutality, Holder has drawn on personal history to make the case that the nation has much work to do to achieve justice for all. It´s a legacy he´ll likely draw on when he travels Wednesday to Ferguson, Missouri, to supervise the federal investigation of the fatal shooting of a black 18-year-old by a white police

FERGUSON, Mo. — Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon said Tuesday that he would not seek the removal of the prosecutor overseeing the investigation into the fatal police shooting of Michael Brown, which has sparked more than a week of nightly clashes between protesters and police. St. Louis County Prosecutor Bob McCulloch´s deep family connections to police have been cited by some black leaders who question his ability to be impartial. McCullouch´s father, mother, brother, uncle and cousin all worked for the St. Louis Police Department, and his father was killed while responding to a call involving a black suspect. Nixon said

The Gateway Pundit can now confirm from two local St. Louis sources that police Officer Darren Wilson suffered facial fractures during his confrontation with deceased 18 year-old Michael Brown. Officer Wilson clearly feared for his life during the incident that led to the shooting death of Brown. This was after Michael Brown and his accomplice Dorian Johnson robbed a local Ferguson convenience store. Local St. Louis sources said Wilson suffered an “orbital blowout fracture to the eye socket.” This comes from a source within the District Attorney’s office and confirmed by the St. Louis County Police.

President Obama returned to his vacation home at Martha’s Vineyard after briefly interrupting his vacation for two days of meetings in Washington, D.C. Obama met with his economic team Tuesday before leaving the White House at 4:22 pm to return to his vacation home. He did not react to the news that broke later that evening about an ISIS video that showed the beheading of American journalist James Wright Foley. The National Security Council reacted, however, in a statement provided by spokesperson Caitlin Hayden. “We have seen a video that purports to be the murder of U.S. citizen James Foley by ISIL,” Hayden said.

In July, after Germany trounced Brazil 7–1 in the semifinal match of the World Cup—including a first-half stretch in which the Brazilian soccer squad gave up an astonishing five goals in 19 minutes—a sports commentator wrote: “This was not a team losing. It was a dream dying.” These words could equally describe what has become of Barack Obama’s foreign policy since his second inauguration. The president, according to the infatuated view of his political aides and media flatterers, was supposed to be playing o jogo bonito, the beautiful game—ending wars, pressing resets, pursuing pivots, and restoring America’s good name abroad.

The Islamic State’s official media just released a graphic video showing the beheading of American journalist James Foley, who was taken in northwest Syria on Thanksgiving Day 2012. The ISIS terrorist in the video says that the beheading is revenge for President Obama’s recent airstrikes on ISIS targets in Iraq. The video, viewed in full by PJM, begins with a snippet of Obama speaking about the strikes, then shifts to images of the strikes with a title that reads, “American Aggression Against the Islamic State.” The title card then says a “A Message to America.” Foley, with a shaved head, was

From nearly 1,000 miles away, several Redskins players used the Monday Night Football stage to draw attention to the situation that has been unfolding in Ferguson, Missouri by running onto FedExField with their hands up in the air. Ferguson is where unarmed 18-year-old Michael Brown was shot and killed by a white police officer on Aug. 9. Witnesses have said he was not aggressive toward the officer and had his hands raised above his head before he was shot. As a result, the words “hands up, don’t shoot” have become a rallying cry of protesters, both in Ferguson and online.
