ISIS Robs Christians Fleeing Its
Edict in Mosul: Convert, Leave, or Die

Daily Beast, by Andrew Slater

Original Article

Posted By:mitzi, 7/22/2014 4:26:06 PM

The last Christians have left one of their holiest cities, running from ISIS demands to become Muslim or be slain—but as a final indignity, their money and even crucifixes were stolen. After being issued an ultimatum from ISIS in Mosul, some of the city’s last Christian families have fled, only to be robbed of their last possessions at ISIS checkpoints. Friday at noon was the deadline for Christian families to meet ISIS’s demands: Convert to Islam, pay an anachronistic Islamic tax for non-Muslims known as jizya, leave Mosul, or be killed. But the day before the final exodus, Christians were

Explain how this tolerant religion isn´t a plague on the civilized world?

And where is the global outrage over the treatment of these people?

Yeah, okay, we´re a secular nation...apparently so are others whose monarchs are so-called "defenders of the faith" or some such...even the Pope seems to have lost his tongue.

Do you really believe, at this point, that they won´t do that here as well? Why do they have cities with groups of them WAITING to be told when?

Some liberal activists who dislike conservative Rush Limbaugh’s talk-radio show and urge advertisers to leave his program were identified in an article this week on the Limbaugh website, and two of the people named confirmed to CNSNews.com that they do contact businesses that advertise on the show, and one disclosed that other “volunteers” use Twitter and Facebook to push a “StopRush” campaign. “Many of our volunteers listen to Limbaugh´s show in order to identify his advertisers in various markets,” said Matt Osborne, the editor of the blog Breitbart Unmasked, in an e-mail to CNSNews.com. “(These volunteers are not included in

   

 



 
Michelle Obama: American Women

Wednesday, First Lady Michelle Obama said that American women are suffering under "harmful cultural norms" at a U.N. education event. Mrs. Obama said, "Women here are still woefully underrepresented in our government and the senior ranks of corporations. We still struggle with violence against woman and harmful cultural norms that tell woman how they are expected to look and act."

Why Education Trumps Poverty
in ´Schools That Work´
Forbes, by Daniel R. Porterfield, Ph.D.    Original Article
Posted By: mitzi- 9/24/2014 3:32:06 PM     Post Reply
“For low-income students, the problem is poverty. Until we solve that, they’ll never realize their potential in school.” We’ve all heard this argument—it’s knowing, realistic … and dead wrong. Of course, poverty throws up huge obstacles. And then great schools help students clear those barriers away. That’s the major message of Megan Sweas’s new book, Putting Education to Work, about the Cristo Rey Network of 28 Catholic high schools, on whose Board of Trustees I serve, and from which hail seven current Franklin & Marshall College students. And this message was echoed last week by Jane Genster, a senior leader

Amazon Warriors´ Names Revealed
Amid "Gibberish" on Ancient Greek Vases

Translations reveal Amazons´ names such as Don´t Fail and Hot Flanks hidden in ancient "nonsense" inscriptions. Ancient Greek vases have revealed the hidden names of Amazons, mythology´s warrior women, in a report deciphering ancient languages unspoken for millennia. In the forthcoming study of pottery dating from 550 B.C. to 450 B.C., study lead author Adrienne Mayor and J. Paul Getty Museum assistant curator David Saunders translated Greek inscriptions into their phonetic sounds for 12 ancient vases from Athens. The inscriptions appear next to scenes of Amazons fighting, hunting, or shooting arrows.

Psych study: “trolling correlated

Canadian researchers: “Of all personality measures, sadism showed the most robust associations with trolling.” They come in all shapes, forms, manners of caps lock, and misspelled profanity, but one thing’s certain: no one likes an internet troll. Internet trolls are the thorn in the side of most people who dare to express an opinion on the internet. Trolls are the people completely disinterested in honest debate, but love to hit and run. They comment on blog posts, news articles, Facebook posts and anywhere else the internet provides a forum for their psychosis to be displayed in all its demented glory. Here

A study conducted by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the University of Washington has concluded that warmer sea and land temperatures along the Pacific coast in North America over the past 100 years are due to weak winds--and not due to human activities or "climate change." The study was published Monday on the eve of the UN Climate Summit by Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

No substantive changes have resulted from a meeting Saturday between Bishop Michael Warfel, leader of the Catholic Diocese of Great Falls – Billings, and parishioners of St. Leo the Great Catholic Church regarding the suspension of church privileges for two gay parishioners in Lewistown. (snip) "As a Catholic bishop, I have a responsibility to uphold our teaching of marriage between one man and one woman," Warfel told the Gazette. "And I think there´s very solid scriptural teaching on it and our sacred tradition is very strong on it. "Either I uphold what Catholic teachings are or, by ignoring or permitting

The Weird Bipartisan Consensus
on Over-the-Counter Birth Control
Atlantic, by Sara Libby    Original Article
Posted By: mitzi- 9/23/2014 12:25:44 PM     Post Reply
Suddenly, a spate of Republicans have come out in favor of over-the-counter contraception—putting Democrats in a tight spot politically. Making birth-control pills available without a prescription has become an unlikely midterm-election issue. Even more surprising is that the idea is mostly being pushed by Republicans. Democrats are in the unusual position of pushing back hard, insisting the move would actually limit access and breathlessly reminding voters, We´re the ones who´ve cared about women all along! The bickering over the details about how such a plan might work and whose concern for women is more sincere obscures a pretty amazing fact:

Will I-Phones End Abortion?

The headline might be a bit jarring, but what might be the unintended consequences of the introduction of unsearchable smartphones? Could they, say, set in motion a legal review that puts in doubt the right to abortion? The question occurs at least to us in the wake of the announcement by Apple and Google that they’ll put some smartphone data “out of reach of police and the courts,” as the Wall Street Journal put it in a dispatch on rising concern the announcement is causing among the authorities. The idea of these new systems is that once the owner of

The Canadian government has begun invalidating the passports of citizens who have left the country to join Islamic State fighters in Syria and Iraq, the National Post has revealed. Citizenship and Immigration Minister Chris Alexander said his department had also revoked the passports of several Canadians who had not yet left the country but who had intended to enlist in the militant group, the paper reported. Mr. Alexander would not disclose the number of passports that have been revoked but said there were “multiple cases.” The government says about 30 Canadians are with extremist groups in Syria and 130 are

Poll: Fewer Than One Third of Americans

Some 70% of Americans do not designate the Obama administration as friendly toward religion, according to a Pew poll released Monday. The share of Americans that sees the Obama administration as friendly toward religion took a dramatic drop to 30% from 37% in 2009. The percentage that rates the administration hostile to religion increased from 17% in 2009 to 29% in the latest poll. These findings come from a new survey by the Pew Research Center, conducted Sept. 2-9 among 2,002 U.S. adults. Some of this suspicion of Obama seems related to the administration’s perceived hostility toward religious liberty, manifested

   

 



 
Half of Americans Believe Gay Sex Is a Sin

This has been a big year for gay rights in America. In state after state, either judges or voters have affirmed the constitutionality of same-sex marriage, and public support for gay unions reached an all-time high. But there´s still a tension between the acknowledgement of gay rights and the acceptance of gayness itself. A new Pew poll on religion in public life found that exactly half of respondents said they consider "homosexual behavior" sinful, a five-percentage-point increase since May 2013. This view is most prominent among white evangelicals and black protestants; more than three-quarters of each group said they see

President Barack Obama returned a formal military salute with a one-handed coffee-cup salute Tuesday, only a few hours after he dispatched the nation’s military on their attack mission into northern Syria. White House aides posted the sloppy salute video on Instagram. The commander in chief offered the coffee-cup salute when he disembarked from his U.S. Marine Corps helicopter in New York, as he made his way to the United Nations General Assembly. “President Obama just landed in New York for #UNGA2014,” says the caption. The salute is “the most important of all military courtesies,” says a manual for Marine Corps officer candidates. “In some situations,

Eric Holder Jr., the nation´s first black U.S. attorney general, is preparing to announce his resignation Thursday after a tumultuous tenure marked by civil rights advances, national security threats, reforms to the criminal justice system and five and a half years of fights with Republicans in Congress. Two sources familiar with the decision tell NPR that Holder, 63, intends to leave the Justice Department as soon as his successor is confirmed, a process that could run through 2014 and even into next year. A former U.S. government official says Holder has been increasingly "adamant" about his desire to leave soon

President Barack Obama saluted a pair of United States Marines on Tuesday while holding what appeared to be a styrofoam cup in his saluting hand, a breach of military regulations that won´t win him fans among veterans and servicemen. Obama is known for drinking tea, not coffee, when he travels, especially before delivering speeches. His quasi-saluting gesture was an instant embarrassment for the White House, and not because his environmentally taboo drinkware clashed with the green-policy speech he was on his way to deliver at a UN Climate Summit.

On Tuesday, shortly after announcing to the American public that the United States was now bombing ISIS in Syria, the President of the United States flew to New York to address the United Nations – on climate change. His speech mixed high-flown sentiment with apologies for America, and pledged American sacrifice in the name of a lofty goal without evidence that such sacrifice would in any way contribute to attaining that goal. In other words, it was a typical Barack Obama whirligig. Even as American warplanes struck targets in Syria, even as regimes tottered in Jordan and Iraq and Yemen,

President Obama on Wednesday delivered a speech at the United Nations filled with his usual soaring rhetoric of global collectivism and the importance of “international norms.” But the president also displayed a shocking naivete about global affairs, religion, Islam — a Pollyannaish interpretation on the state of the world and America’s role in it. Although Mr. Obama won a Nobel Peace Prize just eight months into office, the president made his annual trip to the ineffectual world council to deliver a call to war. “Ladies and gentlemen, we come together at a crossroads between war and peace,

The View is a television show that, apparently, a lot of women watch. Currently, Rosie O’Donnell, who was once famous for something–I have no idea what–is one of the hosts. Still, many women watch. So this video of The View’s women grappling with the Obama administration’s response to ISIS terrorism is noteworthy. I want to highlight O’Donnell’s contribution near the end: We are bombing Syria because Syria has so much oil, so there is a “financial incentive.” What the Hell is this supposed to mean? Why are liberals obsessed with oil? And what, exactly, is the “financial incentive?” Here is the

Rush Limbaugh apparently tips generously, which sometimes makes people who dislike him feel quite awkward. In one case, a waitress-turned-award-winning-author revealed that she felt so awkward, that she donated both of his $1,000 tips to an abortion charity. Merritt Tierce, whose debut novel Love Me Back chronicles her time at a high-end Dallas steakhouse, revealed in an interview with Dallas News that, at the time, she was also the executive director of the Texas Equal Abortion (TEA) Fund, which provides financial assistance to low-income women seeking abortions.

If there is one thing Chelsea Clinton is most worried about, it may be that her soon-to-be child will grow up in a world without elephants. Standing alongside her mother, Hillary Clinton, at the Clinton Global Initiative this afternoon, the very-pregnant former first daughter warned the plight of African elephants, killed for their ivory tusks, is an “existential” one, and said that if the current poaching rates continue, elephants could be few and far between within the next decade. If so, this means Chelsea Clinton’s favorite animal could be something her child would never know. “The child Marc and I

Normally, no one would care that in a recent Atlantic essay — “Why I Hope to Die at 75” — 57-year-old Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel argued that living to be 75 years old was long enough for anyone. After 75, Emanuel suggests, “We are no longer remembered as vibrant and engaged but as feeble, ineffectual, even pathetic.” But Emanuel is no garden-variety crackpot. Nor is he a wannabe science-fiction writer dreaming of a centrally planned planet of robust youthful humanoids. Unfortunately, he was one of the chief architects of the troubled Affordable Care Act and a key medical advisor to the Obama
