Rep. Wolf Accuses ISIS of
Genocide, Targeting Christians
in Iraq ‘For Extinction’

Cybercast News Service, by Barbara Hollingsworth

Original Article

Posted By:mitzi, 7/23/2014 12:59:04 PM

Rep. Frank Wolf (R-Va.) accused the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) of genocide for “systematically targeting Christians and other religious minorities in Iraq for extinction” during an impassioned speech on the House floor Tuesday. Wolf – who earned an international reputation as a champion of human rights for his humanitarian efforts in China, Tibet, Sudan, Afghanistan and other countries during his 34 years in Congress - told his House colleagues that “I believe that what is happening to the Christian community in Iraq is genocide. I also believe it is ‘a crime against humanity’.” "Last Thursday, the Islamic

Finally, someone speaks up about the genocide occurring against Christians in Iraq.
Rep Wolf led on Benghazi- it is all part of the same Islamist outrage.
Will our Faux POTUS still " stand with the Muslims"?

For someone supposedly so concerned for "the children" crossing our border, there is a marked lack of concern for what would happen and is happening to the children in Iraq, and their families, because of his actions and inaction there.

This is not news. It has been the policy of the "Religion of peace" since the 8th century to exterminate all those who do not believe in their particular brand of death cult. they are meerly re-stating an 1100 year old policy that has not been altered, changed, re-designed or re-thought since its inseption.

The more intractable problem here (short of military action) is that ISIS agrees with Rep. Wolf and thinks that Rev. Wolf is complimenting ISIS for doing good because ISIS is insane.

I´ve always admired Rep. Wolf..

Why haven´t we heard from the Pope and Cardinals or from highly regarded Protestant pastors or even from Jewish rabbis - at least they have an excuse right now by having to deal with the threat to Israel.

It is time to put a stop to this ISIS group. Unfortunately America has its hands tied by our Muslim in the WH. Our only hope of ending the bloodshed and enslavement that is coming is Israel. At least Israel knows who its enemies are - present day America hasn´t a clue since we have one or two generations who don´t know what it takes to maintain their freedom.

Congratulations are in order to Senator Ted Cruz who, when he found himself facing an audience that was hostile to Israel, turned around and walked out.

ROME, Italy — When 79-year-old Sister Bernadetta Boggian, of the Xaverian order, called Father Mario Pulcini on Sunday afternoon to tell him that she had just discovered two of her elderly colleagues brutally raped and murdered in their convent in Bujumbura, the capital of Burundi, she had no idea she would face the same fate just nine hours later. Instead, the elderly nun guided Father Pulcini through the carnage, past the pools of blood, first to Sister Lucia Pulici, 82, who was lying on the floor with her throat cut, and then to Sister Olga Raschietti, 75, whose head had

Gov. Cuomo won his Democratic primary fight Tuesday — but not without getting bruised by little-known leftist insurgent Zephyr Teachout’s surprisingly strong showing. With 94 percent of the ballots counted, Teachout had 34.6 percent of the vote to Cuomo’s 61.7 percent — even though she ran a shoestring campaign against a well-financed incumbent who outspent her 10 to 1. And a third candidate on the ballot, Randy Credico, got about 3.7 percent — meaning that almost 40 percent of Dem voters cast their ballots against the gov. Teachout — whom Cuomo tried to vhave booted from the ballot — won

Ryan’s ‘The Way Forward’
Draws Compelling Blueprint For
a Presidential Campaign
New York Sun, by R. Emmett Tyrrell    Original Article
Posted By: mitzi- 9/9/2014 4:38:07 PM     Post Reply
There is a mystery about Congressman Paul Ryan’s new and very good book, “The Way Forward: Renewing the American Dream.” Perhaps there are several mysteries. Mr. Ryan, the chairman of the House Budget Committee and Mitt Romney’s vice presidential running mate, begins by writing at length about the place he has lived all his life, Janesville, a town of 60,000 in southern Wisconsin. It is rural, but it also has industry. Moreover it has Ryans. Sixty-seven of his cousins live nearby. The Ryans have lived there for generations along with other Catholics, Protestants, and presumably citizens oblivious to religion’s call.

This won’t do. The Baltimore Ravens fired running back Ray Rice after a second video surfaced — this one showing him punching his then fiancee, Janay. The NFL also suspended Rice indefinitely so that no other team could sign him. Carson, a former professor and director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins in Baltimore, said that he hoped the league would get some help for Rice.

in Hushing Muslim Sex Abuse Scandal

Imagine a sex scandal centered on a small area, involving decades of abuse, with hundreds of children raped, assaulted and prostituted. Authorities suspected or knew of the crimes but did nothing, preferring to protect the abusers than aid their victims or see justice done. If that city were in, say, Ireland, and the abusers Catholic priests, the U.S. networks would report it immediately and continuously. And rightly so. But move that city to northern England, and make the perpetrators Muslim men? Don’t look to ABC, NBC or CBS for details.

The Obama administration, the CIA, and even some congressional committees—they all said there “was no ´stand down´ order.” But now five men who helped ward off the terrorists that attacked U.S. diplomatic facilities in Benghazi, Libya two years ago say it´s only because they defied such an order that as many as 25 Americans are alive today. “There’s quite a few—the soft-skins, we call them, or the non-shooters,” Kris “Tanto” Paronto, one of the security contractors that fateful evening, said in a phone interview on early Monday afternoon. “They’re all still working.

Twenty-one “floaters” — or human corpses that rise up from the watery depths — have been pulled from New York City waters this year, up from 17 last year, The Post has learned.

On Monday´s New Day on CNN, Jonathan Martin of the New York Times and Bloomberg´s Margaret Tavel ran to President Obama´s defense over his handling of ISIS. Martin hyped that "the President is in a tough spot here....these two beheadings of journalists...have really outraged a lot of folks....and the President is forced to act. But again, there is not any appetite in this country to put ground troops back in that region. And so, the President is somewhat handcuffed."

James O’Keefe’s latest video may seem flip at first glance. He suits up a “terrorist” and boats him across Lake Erie into Cleveland, Ohio. But when you consider the fact that there are an estimated 500 British passport holders currently fighting for the IS, along with over 100 Americans and an untold number of Europeans fighting alongside the terrorists, the subject of border security takes on a greater urgency. The fact that this could happen, as O’Keefe films it, is a grave concern.

A respiratory illness that has already sickened more than a thousand children in 10 states is likely to become a nationwide problem, doctors say. The disease hasn´t been officially identified but officials suspect a rare respiratory virus called human enterovirus 68. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the virus is related to the rhinovirus, which causes the common cold. According to Mark Pallansch, director of the Division of Viral Diseases at the CDC, similar cases to the ones in Colorado have been cropping up across the U.S. At least 10 states -- Missouri, Kansas, Illinois, Kentucky,

But this virulent display of hatred and bigotry was remarkable, and considerably different from anything I’ve previously encountered,” Cruz said, just a few hours after his pro-Israel speech to the In Defense of Christians conference was drowned

This morning, New York Times reporter Kim Severson spiced up her obituary for Chick-fil-A founder S. Truett Cathy by tagging him "a symbol of intolerance" who presided over a "restaurant chain [seen by some] as a symbol of hate." Here´s the relevant excerpt (emphasis mine): When he introduced himself, S. Truett Cathy often played down his job. “I cook chicken for a living,” he would say. And on the surface, that was true. Mr. Cathy, who died on Monday at 93, was by all appearances a humble Christian man from Georgia with little education who sold a simple sandwich: a

WASHINGTON--US President Barack Obama will tell the American people on Wednesday night that he plans to order strikes against Islamic State forces in both Syria and Iraq until the group is ultimately destroyed. The president´s plan includes additional support for opposition militias in Syria vetted by the United States, which will serve as a ground force complementing America´s air campaign.

Free money for everyone! With weak job growth, rising poverty, and the rich continuing to devour nearly all economic growth, it´s an idea that is gaining more credence. Arguments for a universal basic income (UBI) — in which everyone without exception would receive an equal stipend — have flourished in policy-centric areas of the internet, including The Week. Advocates of UBI see it as a blunter, more effective means of reducing poverty and shrinking the inequality gap. But even if UBI proponents are right on the merits, Tyler Cowen argues that the politics of the issue are not favorable. Under

As we suspected, President Obama tried in his Wednesday-night speech to make it sound like he was doing something new when he, in fact, he is not. Moreover, in describing his response, he made plain that he doesn’t take the threat to the homeland seriously. For a threat his advisers say is greater than that posed by al-Qaeda after 2001, he proposed measures suitable for Yemen and Somalia. No, really — that’s the plan. For starters, the president doesn’t believe the Islamic State is a current threat to the U.S.: “So ISIL poses a threat to the people of Iraq
