Kirsten Powers hits Obama’s
inaction on plight of Christians
in Middle East

Legal Insurrection, by Aleister

Original Article

Posted By:mitzi, 8/9/2014 11:07:03 AM

Kirsten Powers and other panelists on the FOX News program “Outnumbered” were discussing Obama’s newly discovered concern for Christians in the middle east and things got a little heated. Powers, who is a liberal and frequent defender of Obama, was one of the most vocal critics. Tim Cavanaugh of National Review has the details: …Kirsten Powers, usually the most liberal of the panelists, tore the president a new one: “He has not uttered the word ‘Christian,’ and now suddenly he throws it in with the Yazidis,” Powers said. “We’re not doing any airdrops to the Christians, who are refugees in

Comments:
I can´t figure out who started it, but a whole bunch of people are tweeting/retweeting:

Pres Obama says Iraqi Govt to blame that no residual US troops remained there after the withdrawal.

Followed by the word LIAR.

Is there one regular visitor to this forum who is surprised that Stinky hates Christians?

No? I didn´t think so.

Welcome to where we all were in 2008, Kirsten - - you´re six years late - - but welcome anyway.

At the end of the clip Bila says many are wondering why O does this, and not that, and that he needs to articulate to the American people why he makes these weird choices. Only he does not want to articulate those thoughts: he supports fundamentalist Islam.

Side bar issue...why does it seem almost daily there are articles about what Kirsten Powers said? Who cares what she said! She is not very bright, she drops God and the Bible into the discussion only when convenient, and she´s got really odd critical thinking skills.

I don´t even understand why she is on Fox, there are better liberals that--although wrong--express themselves with greater thought.

Who the heck is she anyways? Read her bio, it´s pretty thin.

Enough of Kirsten Powers already.

Too many contradictory statements in these comments. If she is a Born-Again Christian, she cannot possibly want the State to replace the church. In any event, I have seen her occasionally on various tv panels and sometimes what she says is, frankly, delusional, in my opinion. Of course she is not the only panelist who makes me wonder what the producers are thinking when they invite their guests to participate. To repeat what Forrest Gump said,"Stupid is as stupid says ( does )".

#11, I´ll be quite frank with you. I am a little tired of the long, cross legged, overly pretty women on Fox. It really does impact their credibility. I would rather they mixed it up with more people that are long on credibility and less on the lip gloss.

There is something a bit sexist in that we can have Krauthammer and Hume on there--no one´s pick for classically handsome men--and enjoy their analysis. But no "plain janes" for females (Greta maybe, and even she got a facelift) because they would be mocked.

Group question--would we be sitting her on another Kirsten Powers thread if she was homely?

Discuss.

Actually we should all care what Kirsten Powers said. She is a lifelong liberal leftist who is also a born again Christian. She is seeing pieces of her world view fall apart and has been seeing it for some time. That´s what happened to David Horowitz - a Red Diaper baby who eventually saw the light and came over to our side. We should care, we should hope and pray for more conversions of this sort.

Proving once again that too many labor unions are either anti-science or only interested in destroying the companies that employ the people they´re supposed to represent, Local 32035, the union representing Washington Post employees, is attacking and mocking Post owner Jeff Bezos over benefit cuts. The ongoing financial collapse of the Washington Post has been well-documented over the years. This is an institution in serious financial trouble.

Speaking today in Joplin, Missouri, VIce President Joe Biden overstated the deaths there in the 2011 tornado by 160,839: (snip) "161,000 brothers, sisters, mothers, fathers, sons, daughters, grandparents lost," said the vice president. But as Reuters reported in 2011, the death toll was in fact 161: The death toll from the May 22 tornado in Joplin, Missouri has been revised down to 161 with the discovery that one assumed victim died of other causes.

After my article “Islamic State Atrocities: Products of Grievances’?” appeared, a reader sent me the following email, which makes similar points, specifically about Obama’s use of the word “expediency” to explain away Islamic State savageries: Dear Mr. Ibrahim, You are so correct to find Obama’s real point of view by paying close attention to his phraseology and vocabulary, something I find too few commentators take the time to do. Often one word, such as “grievances,” gives the whole show away. I read the transcript of Obama’s remarks made after the beheading of Mr. Foley — after which Obama returned to

In October 2014, the first patient on American soil infected with the Ebola virus sits in isolation in a Texas hospital, prompting calls for travel restrictions between the United States and Ebola-stricken countries. Meanwhile, four years ago, the administration of President Barack Obama moved with virtually no fanfare to abandon a comprehensive set of regulations which the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) had called essential to preventing international travelers from spreading deadly diseases inside the United States. The CDC had proposed the regulations in 2005 under the administration of George W. Bush, reported USA Today in 2010. The

“Asinine” is the word the New York Times is using to describe Maurice “Hank” Greenberg’s $55 billion lawsuit against the United States over the Federal Reserve’s seizure of the AIG insurance combine at the start of the Financial Crisis. “Mostly insane” is the phrase the New Republic is using to describe the same suit, which it also calls “ridiculous.” The New Yorker, which sets Mr. Greenberg down as an “old coot,” characterizes his lawsuit as an “absurdist comedy.” The critics of the case seem strangely sneering in respect of the claim made by Starr International (Mr. Greenberg’s company is the

WHEAT RIDGE, Colo. - At least two Colorado adults have died from complications from what may be enterovirus-68, the same strain that has afflicted hundreds, mostly children, across the country. Dr. Phil Emrie, a critical care pulmonologist at Lutheran Medical Center in Wheat Ridge, says he treated adult patients who suffered from conditions similar to the virus. “We don’t know for sure that it’s the enterovirus-68, but we do know that it’s consistent with the illness that they’re seeing in children,” Emrie said. That specific virus has been diagnosed primarily in children. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has

AUSTIN -- A divided federal appeals court ruled Thursday evening to allow Texas´s tough new abortion regulations to take effect, a decision that is expected to force all but seven clinics in the state to close. The ruling from a three-judge panel of the 5th Circuit of the U.S. Court of Appeals at least temporarily reversed a decision by a local judge who struck down two provisions of the law as unconstitutional in August. The order signed by Judges Jennifer Walker Elrod and Jerry E. Smith found that Texas officials were likely to ultimately win their appeal in defense of

In the first chapter that addresses the encounter, Dunham describes the "ill-fated evening of lovemaking" as awkward and hollow.

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false.

It’s the “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.” A New York appeals court next week will consider whether chimps should have the same rights as human beings. The extraordinary proceeding is the result of a lengthy battle by animal-rights activists who argue that animals with human qualities — including chimps — are entitled to human protections, including freedom from captivity. Steven Wise, part of the Nonhuman Rights Project, which is leading the effort, will have to convince a panel of Albany appellate judges that a chimp name Tommy is a “legal person” to get him moved from a cage

President Obama was at Northwestern University on Thursday to deliver an economic speech that, he and his team hoped, would lay out the case for why the public is better off today than they were six years ago -- even if they didn´t feel it in their everday lives. Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him.

A presidential defeat isn’t an easy thing to bounce back from. And Mitt Romney did it twice. So it was understandable that after he lost the presidential race in 2012, he was adamant about closing the door to the possibility of a third campaign. But recently, speculation is whirling that Romney may not be so adamant anymore. When asked if he was running in a New York Times interview published earlier this week, Romney said : “I have nothing to add to the story. We’ve got a lot of people looking at the race,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.” That response, which

Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents? The furor that led to this week’s resignation of the director of the Secret Service resonated deeply among blacks, outraged that those supposed to be guarding the first black president were somehow falling down on the job — and suspicious even without evidence that it may be deliberate. “It is something that is widespread in

It is the stuff that nightmares are made of, and day by day it is getting worse. The Ebola epidemic, says Dr Margaret Chan, director-general of the World Health Organisation (WHO), is now “the greatest peacetime challenge” since the Second World War. Yet her own organisation’s tardiness, partly caused by cuts, together with reductions in--and misuse of--funds elsewhere, are largely responsible for Ebola spiralling out of control. [Snip] It’s just the beginning. At present the numbers of people infected are thought to be doubling in under 30 days--and the blue-chip US Center for Disease Control and Prevention predicts that, if Ebola

ATLANTA — Texas, America’s second-most populous state behind California, saw 13 of its last abortion clinics turn away women on Friday, after a federal appeals court upheld a law that practically guarantees that only a handful of clinics will remain open in the state. The strictest-of-its-kind Texas law requires abortion providers to build hospital-grade facilities and obtain sometimes impossible-to-get hospital admitting privileges. After signed into law last year by Gov. Rick Perry (R), the law forced most of the 41 clinics operating to close. Thursday’s ruling wiped out a brief victory this summer for abortion rights proponents,

Go to a grocery store in California and buy all the milk, eggs and vegetables you want. But there’s one thing you won’t find at the checkout line, beginning July 1, 2015: Plastic bags to carry your stuff home. Gov. Jerry Brown (D) on Tuesday signed into law a ban on single-use plastic bags, making California the first state to prohibit stores from using the ubiquitous carry-alls. Shoppers will be charged 10 cents for every paper bag and heavy-duty plastic bag they use. “This bill is a step in the right direction,” Brown said in a press release announcing his approval. “It
