OBAMA’S GRAND STRATEGY

Obama on ISIS:““I don't want to put the cart before the horse: we don't have a strategy yet. Well, actually we do. It’s the same one I’ve had since I became President:‘Mo’ free sh*t’. Nothing has changed. I’ve driven our bankrupt nation to the brink. We’re $17 trillion in debt and no end in sight. So let’s drive that cart into the hood and unload mo’ free stuff for my peeps. That’s what you voted for and that’s what I’ll deliver. As for all those foreigners and complicated defense, economics and all that? I haven’t got a clue. I’ve only ever been a community organizer. You knew that when you put me in office. Just WTF do you think they do anyway? They go around begging & threatening folks for mo’ free sh*t, that’s what! Hello?”

When you can convince me that China and India give a flying fig about anything that comes out of Obama's mouth - since they are the two biggest contributors to pollution - then you can defend him wanting to punish US by raising our taxes.
And unless Obama can push back the waters by decreeing it to be because he speaks it into being, there isn't much any of us can do about nature and what it's going to do all by itself.
That's why you liberals are much too clueless. You think you can control the actions of others and even nature by defending a president who is clearly out of touch with reality.
Can't get much more clueless than that.
Idiot speak! China is already paying a high price for neglecting it's air and water quality__India will follow__perhaps.

The US and others are simply leading by example__it has little if anything to do with Obama.

You're a moron.

Over the weekend social media sites exploded with outrage over reports that the Islamic militant group ISIS was beheading Christian children in Iraq. The news is horrific and disturbing — but is it true?

The source of the claim comes from Mark Arabo in an interview with CNN. Arabo says that ISIS is “systematically beheading children” and that “there is a park in Mosul in which heads of beheaded children are put on a stick.”

Arabo is businessman in San Diego, California who is described as a “spokesperson for the Iraqi Chaldean community in San Diego County.” Arabo has been instrumental in promoting House Resolution 663, a resolution that expresses an “urgent need to protect religious minorities from persecution.” While he is a passionate spokesman for Iraqi Chaldeans and obviously sincere in his convictions, there is reason to question whether his claim about beheaded children is true.

There is no doubt that ISIS is persecuting the Christians in Mosul and other areas of Iraq. But almost all have already fled the city and the few that remain are continuing to leave the area. There are, however, journalists from Iraq and Western news agencies still in the city. Why have none of them taken photographs of these atrocities, or even reported on their occurrence? Why have such stories not been reported by the Christians who have fled to the cities controlled by the Kurds?

If Arabo was able to get news of such atrocities in San Diego, why has no one else heard stories of this ongoing tragedy?

Fueling the speculation has been websites, like Catholic Online, that purport to have pictures of children beheaded by ISIS.(The images on the site are extremely graphic and disturbing. I’d advise not looking at them.) Catholic Online, which is not officially connected to the Catholic Church, has only one picture that could be of a beheaded child. But there is no way to know whether it is real or whether it occurred in Iraq. There is no source or context for the photos and the story is credited to “News Consortium.”

One of the pictures that Catholic Online includes — and that has become ubiquitous on social media — shows a baby with three rifles pointed at his head (see image above). While the image is outrageous, it was not a photo taken of ISIS in northern Iraq.

The photo originally appeared online April 11, 2014 on the Facebook page of a person from Yemen. Numerous people on that page attest that the clothes the child is wearing are obviously Yemeni. A few days later, though, the image started popping up on pro-Syrian Army websites claiming that it was an Armenian child who was taken by Syrian rebels. Whatever the original context for the photo, we know based on the date alone that it was not recently taken in Mosul or northern Iraq.

While it is possible that children are being beheaded by ISIS in Iraq, there is currently no credible evidence to support that claim. We should pray this report turn out to be just rumor and that whatever other crimes are being committed, that God is sparing the children of Iraq from “systematic beheading.”

As Christians, we have a duty to champion the truth. We should avoid spreading unsubstantiated claims and inflaming dread and panic by playing on people’s natural disgust of harm to children. ISIS is an organization that has committed heinous acts of violence and violated the human rights of many of our fellow believers. But we must not partake in the spreading of lies, even if it is against our enemies.

If you posted the entire quote, you would have known Jefferson was referring to institutionalized religion, i.e. priests.

This quote is much more prophetic when it comes to progressive liberals today.

"The legitimate powers of government extend to such acts only as are injurious to others. But it does me no injury for my neighbor to say there are twenty gods, or no God. It neither picks my pocket nor breaks my leg."
~Thomas Jefferson, speech to Virginia House of Delegates, November, 1776

So tell that to your other liberal pals and Realtime. What people choose to believe takes no skin of yours or anyone else's nose. Unless they believe in beheading you.

So please stop trying to silence the freedom to express one's religious beliefs.

Jefferson assumed we'd never become so barbaric as to kill human life out of a selfish convenience. So don't go there. Killing human life was wrong then and still wrong today.

Liberals have just become more tolerant of barbarism and selfishness.

Hi! I might start using my real name on topix to see if I get posted and/or if I am still
censored...I only get on space alien web sites, so that should not be too bad. I read on topix
where someone said about 10 special operations army guys are quitting the army every day,
because they are afraid President Obama is going to get them killed! My words: "The jihadist
soldiers are not afraid of being killed...they believe they are going to Heaven for killing
infidels!" The web sites I get on are saying there is going to be world peace and prosperity! That
is coming from the space alien web sites! I am going to post this comment to see if it gets

Fox is the most trusted television news network in the country, according to a new Public Policy Polling nationwide survey.

http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0110/320...

But that was in 2010.

More recently in January 2014:

35% of Americans say they trust Fox News more than any other TV news outlet, followed by 14% for PBS, 11% for ABC, 10% for CNN, 9% for CBS, 6% each for Comedy Central and MSNBC, and 3% for NBC.

Just saying...all three holes don't look anything like a massive explosion from under the earth's surface. They're almost perfectly round with no "severe burning" around the rim ruling out a meteoric impact. The gas explosion theory is the only thing scientists have left other than a UFO intrusion. Seems to me a gas explosion wouldn't leave such a neatly rounded carved out hole.
