Obama´s inattention to Iraqi Christians
USA Today, by Kirsten Powers

Original Article

Posted By:jackson, 8/13/2014 9:31:06 AM

It´s starting to seem as if the Obama White House operates on a time delay. In the case of Iraq´s religious minorities, the results have been deadly. On June 10, the barbaric extremists called the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) captured the city of Mosul. By mid-July, they issued an edict to the Christians who remained to "convert, leave or be killed." The White House said nothing. Beginning on July 22, Rep. Frank Wolf, R-Va., took to the House floor six times to plead for attention from the Obama administration as a genocide threatened Iraq. Not a word from the president. On July

Comments:
Kirsten knows that if the Iraqi Gay Christians were in trouble, the army, navy, marines, coast guard would be there in a flash!!

And yet, Kirsten would vote for Obama again if she could.

He is a little secret - Obama would ignore the problem if the Christians being victimized were in Memphis or Witchitaw.

He just does not care much for Christians.

FTA: During the Bush administration, nearly a million Christians fled Iraq in fear for their lives. Ironically, it was Sen. Barack Obama who sent the Bush State Department a letter in 2007 inquiring about this persecution. Incredibly, the Bush administration denied there was a problem.

Isn´t it interesting that he allegedly was concerned about Christians in 2007. It is stunning to see the utter hypocrisy of Obama day after day. He has constantly reversed his position on numerous items since he was elected. He is nothing but a pure political hack who make decisions solely based on politics. You can only assume his alleged concern was also a political move again making him appear to be something he was not.

As for Powers, I don´t care what she has to say. Occasionally she experiences a blinding flash of the obvious and then will revert back to her leftist default mode.

Kirsten seems to "awakening" lately.

I thinks she is intellectually honest enough to face the wrath of her party and speak out forcefully on the slaughter of Christians, Obama´s irrational withholding of aid, and his seeming inability to utter the word Christian.

She also has called out the Dem´s on the phony "war on women."

I think she is still completely wrong on the border crises.

I do believe she told O´Reilly during their big dust up recently that she did not vote for Obama in 2012.

It seems there is only one religion that is immune to criticism. Is that because they “fight back”, while everyone else is expected to accept criticism, murder and any other insult graciously.

We certainly shouldn´t be surprised by this latest outrage from the community organizer. As did a young Adolf Schicklgruber in the 1925 publication of "Mein Kampf," the young Barry Soetoro spelled out his intentions for the world´s Judeo-Christian civilizations in the pages of "Audacity of Hope," published in 2006: "I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction."

Could it be that Rev 18:4 is telling Christians to flee the literal Babylon, not just the figurative/spiritual Babylon?

Do you know that Zechariah 5:11 foretells a great evil coming out of Babylon (the land of Shinar)? Can it be that the Anti Christ will rebuilt another Babylon, setting up another base from which to attack Jerusalem, which will be a city of commerce and religion, which will unite both Sunnis and Shiites with his lying signs and wonders and the persecution now is a terrible tribulation for Christians but ultimate a way that God sends Christians away from a place He wants to utterly destroy?

Just for the record, Kirsten says she did not vote for Obama (or for anyone else) in the 2012 election. Her views on admitting Central American illegals who have recently come to the U.S. are looney, but she is a rare, principled liberal who agrees the MSM is in the tank for Obama and covering up crimes in the administration.

Kirsten is married to an Egyptian, whom I suspect comes from a Coptic background. This may explain her strong interest in Middle Eastern Christians and her assertion from the beginning that the Muslim Brotherhood would be anti-Christian and imbued with the most social reactionary and anti-democratic policies upon achieving power in Egypt.

Why would a homosexual muslim stand up for any group that stands for everything they disagree with??? Am I missing something here???

Øvomit has shown total lack of respect, and total disdain, for Christianity every step of his reign of terror. I´m sure he is totally happy to know there are fewer Christians in this world after ISIS visits a village and slaughters the Christians there.

I can´t even give Øvomit the benefit of the doubt any more. If this was muslims being slaughtered by radical Christians, or homosexuals being slaughtered by radical Christians, does anyone doubt for a second that he would have sent in everything that we have immediately???

Adrian Peterson turned himself in early Saturday morning, FOX NFL Insider Jay Glazer reported , after authorities in Texas issued an arrest warrant for the star Minnesota Vikings running back on a charge of child abuse for using a branch to spank his son. Peterson surrendered to authorities in Montgomery County and was released on a $21,000 bond, according to Glazer. However, Peterson has been benched for Sunday’s game against New England.

Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions singled out Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg on Wednesday for taking jobs away from American workers and giving them to immigrants to drive down his company´s costs. Sessions, a Republican who is known for his fierce opposition to amnesty for illegal immigrants, railed on the Senate floor against Zuckerberg and other Democrats backing executive action by the president and legislation authored by the Gang of Eight that would increase the number of guest worker permits. ´The “masters of the universe” are very fond of open borders as long as these open borders don’t extend to their gated compounds and

No, it’s not the Onion, it is Bill Maher on the Charlie Rose show pointing out the difference between Islam and Christianity. He is responding to President Obama’s assertion that there is no relationship between Islam and Islamism: Maher: There are illiberal beliefs that are held by vast numbers of Muslim people – Rose: A vast number of Christians too. Maher: No, that’s not true. Not true. Vast numbers of Christians do not believe that if you leave the Christian religion you should be killed for it.

Former Republican Florida governor Jeb Bush will hit Illinois, Florida and Michigan in a tour of GOP campaign events over the next several weeks. As the Washington Examiner detailed, Bush will make three high-profile appearances this month and next: a campaign stop with Illinois gubernatorial hopeful Bruce Rauner in Chicago on September 18; a September 23 fundraiser in Florida for five competitive Republican Senate candidates including hawkish Arkansas prospect Tom Cotton; and an up to $5,000 per head fundraising gala for Michigan governor Tom Snyder in October.

It’s a tough time to be a concerned citizen. The truth of the matter is, the job has always been messy. But it’s way worse when the subject is foreign policy. We gathered around our TVs and computers and peered at our smartphones Wednesday night to hear President Obama explain his plan for combating ISIS, even though we have pretty much lost faith in plans when it comes to the United States involvement in the Middle East. He sounded very strong. And, really, that’s something. We’d have been happy to come away just saying something like “he appeared to believe he’s on the

Baltimore Ravens owner Stephen Bisciotti wrote a letter to the team´s fans and sponsors Tuesday, addressing the team´s handling of the Ray Rice situation and stating that the Ravens could have handled things differently. "First, let us say that we did not do all we should have done and no amount of explanation can remedy that," Bisciotti wrote in the letter, which was posted on the team´s website. Rice and his then-fiancee, Janay Rice, were involved in a Feb. 15 altercation in an Atlantic City hotel elevator.

Oversight chairman Rep. Darrell Issa pledged Thursday evening that the Obama administration’s top Obamacare official must testify to Congress about a July security breach at HealthCare.gov. The federal Obamacare website was hacked into in July, The Wall Street Journal first reported Thursday. No personal consumer information was extracted from HealthCare.gov, but the “malicious attack” inserted malware into a weak part of the website that will help the hackers to attack other websites. Now, Republican Rep. Darrell Issa wants Marilyn Tavenner, head of the Obamacare agency the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, to finally testify before Congress

Ultra-left-wing blogger Amanda Marcotte targeted an apparent societal "tyranny" in a Wednesday item for Slate: the "burden" that the "home-cooked meal" places on women in particular. Marcotte played up a recent study by a feminist professor and her two colleagues that underlined that "while home-cooked meals are typically healthier than restaurant food...the stress that cooking puts on people, particularly women, may not be worth the trade-off." The writer played up how men are supposedly a large part of this "tyranny" on "middle-class working mothers:" ...[W]omen find that their very own families present a major obstacle to their desire to provide

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama is interrupting a weekend trip to return to the White House. White House spokesman Josh Earnest said Obama changed his plans for Friday and will return to Washington late in the evening after fundraisers in New York and Rhode Island, instead of overnighting in New York as originally planned. Earnest said Obama himself made the decision to return to the White House and that it was unrelated to any current events. "He can sleep in his own bed, do a little work tomorrow, spend some time with his family" before traveling back to Westchester

President Obama in his ISIS speech did his best to convince the American people that things are under control, that he will pursue a coalition with other nations to degrade and ultimately destroy ISIS and that he will do it only through air strikes.

Or are there other, hidden reasons why Obama does not want to destroy ISIS? Reluctance and refusal to go to war,

Even someone as savvy about everything as Michelle Obama sometimes flubs an outfit — or to put it more politely, wears something that doesn’t enhance her natural attractions. Which is not to say that’s all that matters about the first lady, who’s been busy with a variety of public events this week: registering voters in Georgia, cutting the ribbon on the renovated White House Visitors Center, commemorating the 9/11 terrorist attacks, even appearing in a videotaped shout-out to Prince Harry. Take a look at what she wore for all that. A little too full for her figure? (Photographs).. A flattering

This week, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) slandered a group of Middle Eastern Christians who were trying to raise awareness of their struggle to avoid a genocide in the Middle East. His cynical grandstanding was rightly condemned — but he was hardly alone. Cruz agreed to speak to this group, which included bishops of the Catholic and Orthodox Churches, ostensibly out of solidarity, but took the occasion to antagonize them over their insufficient praise for Israel, then smeared them as anti-Semites before dropping the mic. The Washington Free Beacon publicized this flameout — their publisher said the room

Voter turnout during last month´s primary races was a little too good in some counties, Arizona elections officials said Friday. Some precincts in northern Arizona tallied more ballots cast than there are registered voters, the Arizona Capitol Times reported. According to officials, errors made by poll workers and elections officials in Apache and Navajo counties led to the miscalculations. Initial reports from some precincts showed a turnout of anywhere from 200 to 400 percent. In Apache County, the Puerco West precinct reportedly had 100 votes cast, but only 23 voters are registered there. The voter turnout added up to 434

SAN DIEGO — African-American elementary students in California were chronically truant at nearly four times the rate of all students during the last school year, according to a state report released Friday. The report by the California Attorney General´s office is the first time the data has been broken down according to race and income levels. Officials say such data is needed to address the problem. Poverty and suspensions are contributing factors. Overall, more than 250,000 elementary school students missed 10 percent or more of the 2013-2014 school year or roughly 18 or more school days. The absences were highest at the kindergarten and

Body odour is among 52 criteria that officials at San Diego International Airport use to judge taxi drivers. Cabbies say that smacks of prejudice and discrimination. It does discriminate between cabbies who smell like an open sewer and those who don’t. It further prejudges what a good smell is.

Let’s start with the end. When it’s over — when you make it through the marathon that is Ken Burns’s beautiful, seven-part documentary “The Roosevelts: An Intimate History,” which begins Sunday night on PBS — you may find yourself with a lingering, nebulous grief. You’re sorry it’s over. You’re sorry they’re over. You’re sorry a certain expression of American ideals is, or often appears to be, completely over. My study habits haven’t improved since college; like an idiot, I put off watching all 14 hours of “The Roosevelts” until I absolutely had to watch them on a deadline binge this week.
