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.

The U.S. had expected the Iraqi army to do more against extremists, president says in acknowledgment of intelligence shortcomings. President Obama acknowledged that the U.S. underestimated the rise of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS, also called ISIL) and overestimated the ability of the Iraqi military to fend off the militant group in an interview that will air Sunday on 60 Minutes. The president was asked by 60 Minutes correspondent Steve Kroft about comments from Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, who has said the U.S. not only underestimated ISIS, it also overestimated the ability and will of the

Authorities responded to a call for an officer shot in north St. Louis County late Saturday night. St. Louis County Police reported a male police officer from Ferguson was doing routine patrol around 9:10 p.m. in the 1000 block of Smith Avenue when he interrupted a burglary at a business. Police say the officer saw a man behind the Ferguson Community Center and got out of his vehicle to see why he was there. The suspect fled and the officer followed on foot. Officials say during the pursuit the suspect turned toward the officer with a handgun and began firing shots. The officer was hit in the left arm.

It is a tail of too funny! #Groundhoggate became the talk of Twitter and late-night TV this week — with an avalanche of jokes skewering Mayor de Blasio for the death of Staten Island’s furball forecaster. Stephen Colbert accused de Blasio of carrying out a “mob-style execution” when he dropped the groundhog on Feb. 2 — causing internal injuries that killed it a week later. “At the time that de Blasio dropped him, it seemed like an accident, but think about it,” he mused in a segment on “The Colbert Report” Thursday night. “Staten Island was the only borough that

MADRID: Tens of thousands of people gathered in Madrid on Saturday to witness the beatification of an early leader of the Roman Catholic organization Opus Dei. At a large outdoor mass, Cardinal Angelo Amato began the process that will confirm Alvaro del Portillo as a saint. Del Portillo succeeded Opus Dei´s founder, St. Josemaria Escriva de Balaguer, as leader of the organization. Opus Dei, once considered a secretive, right-wing, cult-like group that curried high favor within the church, has been trying to foster a friendlier image in recent years.

Tokyo - A volcano in central Japan erupted in spectacular fashion on Saturday, catching mountain climbers by surprise and injuring at least 11 people, including seven who lost consciousness. With a sound likened to thunder, Mount Ontake erupted shortly before noon on a clear autumn day, spewing large white plumes of ash high into the sky and sending people on the mountainside fleeing. The eruption continued into the night, blanketing the surrounding area in ash. More than 250 people were stuck on the slopes for hours, many taking refuge in mountain lodges that dot the way up.

We’re being had. Again. For six years, President Obama has endeavored to will the country into accepting two pillars of his alternative national-security reality. First, he claims to have dealt decisively with the terrorist threat, rendering it a disparate series of ragtag jayvees. Second, he asserts that the threat is unrelated to Islam, which is innately peaceful, moderate, and opposed to the wanton “violent extremists” who purport to act in its name. Now, the president has been compelled to act against a jihad that has neither ended nor been “decimated.” The jihad, in fact, has inevitably intensified under his counterfactual

Brown´s mother, Lesley McSpadden, called for Chief Tom Jackson to be fired, and his father, Michael Brown Sr., said rather than an apology, they would rather see Officer Darren Wilson arrested for the death of their son on Aug. 9. "An apology would be when Darren Wilson has handcuffs, processed and charged with murder," Brown Sr. said. The young man, who was black,

If I were a scientist, I´d stick to the Goldman Sachs principle: bet on both sides. "Believe in science, believe in God" seems to cover all the possibilities and gives you the best chance for a cheery afterlife. For a time, it was thought that astrophysicist Stephen Hawking had also left a tiny gap in his credo window for a magical deity. However, he has now come out and declared that there is no God.

When the U.S. military strikes, its leaders often choose colorful code names for the operation that sometimes stick in history, like Operation Overlord or Rolling Thunder or Desert Storm. Not this time. The U.S.-led air campaign against the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria doesn´t have a name. "I know of no plans at this point to name it," Pentagon spokesman Rear Adm. John Kirby said Thursday. Since World War II, almost every U.S. military operation, large and small, has had a code name.

Political pollsters have a tough job. They have to create formulas to determine if the person they are interviewing is likely to vote, and it is within this calculation that their reputations are made. Typically, those who are likely to vote in an off-year election are pretty set. They are the people who always vote in elections — with some motivated by specific issues. In a wave election, the number of those motivated by specific issues escalates, changing the electoral landscape as the candidates who are beneficiaries of this increased participation sweep to victory. The 2014 election is rapidly looking like something new

This Kmart store was looted during the August riots. This is a typical consequence by corporate businesses as they view “high risk” neighborhoods and communities. The operational risks, crime, lawsuits, et al, are too high to remain in business – and the actuaries recommend closure.In addition Gateway Pundit shares - On Wednesday, Missouri State Highway Patrol Captain Ron Johnson told reporters the QuikTrip convenience store that burned down would rebuild in Ferguson. Not True. QuikTrip has no plans to rebuild in Ferguson, Missouri. A QuikTrip representative wrote The Gateway Pundit on Friday in response to Captain Johnson’s comments: “Thank you for asking.
