´Thank you for your faith and
courage´: Sudanese mother put
on death row for marrying a
Christian is praised by Pope
Francis as she has ´very affectionate´
meeting after travelling to Rome

Daily Mail [UK], by Leon Watson and Daniel Bates

Original Article

Posted By:ScarletPimpernel, 7/24/2014 10:04:48 AM

Pope Francis has met privately with a Sudanese mother in Rome who was put on death row for refusing to become a Muslim. The Vatican said Pope Francis had ´a very affectionate´ meeting with Meriam Ibrahim, 27, her husband and their two small children. Vatican spokesman the Rev. Federico Lombardi said the pope ´thanked her for her faith and courage, and she thanked him for his prayer and solidarity´ during the half-hour meeting.

Comments:
Thank you, Heavenly Father! As usual with the Daily Mail, there are many photos accompanying the article. I am so grateful to Italy. I lived in Rome for four years and am not at all surprised by its kindness and generosity.

I love this! We all prayed for this brave woman and her family. Francis thanking her for her faith and courage--this man is a leader. What a difference between him and Obama.

It is difficult to express the joy of seeing a woman put the sword rewarded for sticking to her Faith and live to be an example to US all. Thank you Italy and especially my Pope Francis for acknowledging her "testimony."

I am forever grateful for the deliverance of this fine Christian. Thank you, Italy!

Might I inject a brief observation? While I really embrace all the good accomplished for her, what exactly is Francis doing for the Christians of Iraq? The ISIS murders destroyed an 1,800 year old church - yet I have yet to hear anything much less see anything condemning this action. Or, did I miss something?

#4 - you may not have noticed, but the Vatican does not have an army, air force or navy. And getting the Knights Templar re-organized on such short notice is difficult.

You might want to check some religious news services and blogs. MSM doesn´t report the "good" stuff.

The question for you is what are you doing? Pray for them.

Good comeback, #5. And to #4, the better question is what exactly is 0bama doing for the persecuted Christians in Iraq and around the world? Unlike the Vatican (disclaimer: I am not Cataolic), 0bama actually does have a military. Pope Francis has spoken out about this, numerous times.

And again, no one should be surprised by Italy´s actions.

First, I give our faithful God all the praise and glory for answering the millions of prayers on the his dear family´s behalf. Not only Miriam but her devoted Christian husband and babies have been through so much. But now -- ha ha Obama --VICTORY!! It´s a great day. Thank you dear Pope Francis and the efforts of the Italian government for securing her release. Mind you, Pope Francis is deeply mourning the loss two days ago of a very very close brother in the Lord of many years, Tony Palmer. Bless you Pope Francis.

What if they polled the people who actually voted in the Primary and asked them if they wanted to vote for the Democrat or the Republican in the November Election and 99% said the Democrat? That is not permitted if you pledged to vote for the Republican in the General in order to vote in the Republican Primary. That´s how the system works. Clever if that´s what they did.

A former American sailor convicted during the Cold War of leading a family spy ring for the Soviet Union has died in a prison hospital in North Carolina. Retired Navy Warrant Officer John A. Walker Jr. died Thursday at the Federal Medical Center in Butner, Federal Bureau of Prisons spokesman Chris Burke said. [Snip] Walker was sentenced to life in prison after pleading guilty in 1985 to passing secrets to the Soviets while he was a shipboard communications officer.

James Foley was singled out for the harshest treatment by his ISIS captors after they found pictures of his brother who serves in the U.S. Air Force on his laptop computer, fellow prisoners said on Thursday. He was regularly the victim of mock executions including once when he was ´crucified against a wall,´ said French journalist Didier Francois. Francois, 53, told Europe 1 Radio that the captors gave Foley rougher treatment from the rest of them because they discovered a picture of John Foley — the hostage´s 35-year-old officer brother — on his computer.

Coming Out as Pro-Israel on Facebook
American Thinker, by Danusha V. Goska    Original Article
Posted By: ScarletPimpernel- 8/10/2014 10:24:29 AM     Post Reply
I recently spelled out my support for Israel on Facebook. This is new for me. I´m an American baby boomer, and I always took it for granted that my country supported Israel, and that forces infinitely more powerful than I had the job covered. There´s another reason I previously hadn´t said much about Israel: I´m Polish-Slovak-American, and I am Catholic. Polish Catholics are stereotyped as the world´s worst anti-Semites. Poles suck anti-Semitism with their mother´s milk, Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir famously declared.

A Navy diver died at the bottom of a Maryland pond last year after refusing to leave his trapped fellow sailor to drown alone. Petty Officer 2nd Class Ryan Harris, 23, and Petty Officer 1st Class James Reyher, 28, were sent to dive in the Aberdeen Proving Ground on February 26 2013, but their lifeless bodies were pulled to the surface just 31 minutes after they started the dive. No one knew what had befallen the pair until an investigation, completed last year but only recently released, pieced together the final 31 minutes of the young men´s lives.

Six weeks after the primary runoff election, Mississippi State Sen. Chris McDaniel is launching his formal legal challenge of the election results, saying the evidence is so conclusive that he will be calling for courts to recognize him as the true victor of the race rather than calling for a new election. “Chris McDaniel clearly, clearly won the Republican vote in the runoff,” McDaniel attorney Mitch Tyner said at a Monday press conference. “I say that very assuredly because that’s what the mathematics show. It’s not what I’m arguing. After the election, we did some post-election polling.

A new book claims that Vice-President Joe Biden upsets female Secret Service agents by swimming naked wherever he goes. The book The First Family Detail by best-selling author Robert Kessler purports to tell the behind the scenes secrets of the two most powerful offices in the world as seen by their protection details. Vice-President Biden, claims the book, ´Agents say that, whether at the vice president´s residence or at his home in Delaware, Biden has a habit of swimming in his pool nude,´ Mr Kessler writes. ´Female Secret Service agents find that offensive.´

Why Criminals Are Afraid
of Classical Music
American Thinker, by Enza Ferreri    Original Article
Posted By: ScarletPimpernel- 7/30/2014 9:26:20 AM     Post Reply
Many young people, especially the anti-social, dislike classical music so much that it can be played to discourage them from intimidating, harassing and robbing. This experiment has been successful over many years in countless locations. The earliest occurrence was in the mid-1980s, when Canadian outlets of 7-Eleven played easy listening and classical music to disperse teenagers loitering outside. After that, companies from McDonald's to Co-op, transport authorities, housing estates and shopping malls around the world have employed this method. In the UK, the first to do so was the Tyne-and-Wear Metro system in 1997, following Montreal’s underground system in Canada.

Before dog licenses and leash laws; before doggie mohawks, colored hair and painted toenails; before $100 teeth cleaning, $800 vet bills, and humiliating Halloween costumes, there existed – in almost every sleepy town with a red brick school and a white church steeple – an extinct breed of canine I like to call the American dog. He (or she) went by names like Old Shep, Old Dog Tray, or Spot. This is the story of an American dog.

   

 



 
Rick Perry Too Timid
with the National Guard?
American Thinker, by Jonathon Moseley    Original Article
Posted By: ScarletPimpernel- 7/26/2014 7:42:12 AM     Post Reply
The American people cheered – starved for any crumb of leadership and faithfulness to constitutional duties – at the news of Governor Rick Perry calling out the Texas National Guard to patrol the Texas-Mexican border. Then, within the hour, Texas officials conceded that the inadequate contingent of 1,000 guardsmen will not actually do anything but stand around. Texas officials now admit that the 1,000 guardsmen will simply be a “visual deterrent” – for appearances only. The Texas government argues that the Texas National Guard will not have authority to arrest anyone under the Posse Comitatus law. But that is absurd.

I spend the night last night with the family I met the day before. The ones I wrote about in an article called Why Israel Fights: Life on the Gaza Border. I met them yesterday and when I see them today I’m greeted not like the stranger who knocked on the wrong door and found the right people, which is what happened yesterday. Today I’m family. Not just family, beloved family. And I’m not alone either. All the soldiers for whom they’ve set up cots in their front yard are family too.

Sen. Ted Cruz said Wednesday he will hold up all presidential nominees for the State Department until President Barack Obama nominates an inspector general for the department. The Texas Republican said that the attacks on Americans in Benghazi as well as overspending in overseas conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq underscore the need for Obama to select a watchdog to the State Department, which has been missing a permanent IG since Obama assumed the presidency in 2009. “The position has been vacant for almost 2,000 days. This is a crucial oversight position and should be a priority for an agency facing

Her funeral was held in her New York on Sunday and attracted stars including Hugh Jackman, Whoopi Goldberg, Kelly Osbourne and Sarah Jessica Parker, and it has now emerged Rivers had previously drawn up a wish-list of famous faces who should stay away.

Half of all bird species in North America — including the bald eagle — are at risk of severe population decline by 2080 if the swift pace of global warming continues, the National Audubon Society concluded in a study released Monday. "The scale of the disruption we´re projecting is a real punch in the gut," said Gary Langham, chief Audubon scientist. (Snip) By 2080, the bald eagle, the national symbol of the United States, could see its habitat decrease by 75%, the report says.

Washington — Panera Bread on Monday asked customers not to bring firearms into its restaurants, joining a growing list of retail and fast-food chains that have declared their establishments gun-free zones. The company said it wants to ensure that "customers and associates feel comfortable and welcome” in its restaurants. “We ask that guns not be brought into this environment unless carried by an authorized law enforcement officer," the eatery chain, which boosts 1,800 locations in the United States and Canada, said in a statement Monday.

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

The Obama administration will make a decision on executive action to prevent corporations from leaving the country in the "very near future," Treasury Secretary Jack Lew said Monday morning. Speaking at an event on business taxes at the Urban Institute in Washington, Lew placed the responsibility on Congress to address so-called tax inversions, but said that the administration was prepared to step in if lawmakers don´t move quickly enough. Inversions are tax maneuvers in which corporations buy firms in low-tax countries in order to place their headquarters in that country. Such deals have grown in number in recent months, with

Megyn Kelly tonight brought viewers the first part of her contentious showdown with Professor Ward Churchill, best known for his controversial comments about the “little Eichmanns” who were in the World Trade Center when the planes hit on September 11th. Churchill came under intense scrutiny and was fired by the University of Colorado at Boulder. What concerned Kelly most in the first part of the interview was that “little Eichmanns” comment, the argument being that Eichmann played a role in horrible atrocities even though he didn’t directly carry out the Final Solution, which he views as similar to the financial

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

"Do you hear what I´m telling you?" she asked the students. "Because I´m giving you some insights that a lot of rich kids all over the country -- they know this stuff, and I want you to know it, too. Because you have got to go and get your education. You´ve got to."
