Peshawar In Pictures - Will The Outrage Over The School Massacre Tip The Scales Against Hardline Religious Ideology?


132 children were killed when seven Taliban gunmen stormed Pakistan school

The Independent - As the city of Peshawar continued the harrowing process of burying the victims of the Taliban massacre, images of some of the 132 children killed in the attack have started to emerge.

The seven gunmen killed 148 people after storming the military run Army Public School in north-western Pakistan on Tuesday. Pupils were gunned down while some of the women teachers were reportedly burned alive.

People across the country today lit candles and staged vigils as mass funerals were held in and around Peshawar.

The Hypocrisy of Qatar's Slave Trade & The Disturbing Case Of Mr. & Mrs. Huang

The strange case of Mr. And Mrs. Huang - by Larry Hart

Mr. and Mrs. Matthew Huang, (Pronounced Wong) two Americans who have lived a nightmare that no civilized person should ever experience, are now back home in the United States.  Matthew, a civil engineer, was relocated by his company to Qatar to help with an infrastructure project connected with the FIFA improvements for the 2022 games.

The Huangs have three adopted children from Africa. While living there, their daughter, Gloria had severe eating disorders probably stemming from the hardship of her toddler years in an African orphanage. Life threatening, Gloria succumbed to these disorders and died on January 13, 2013, while the couple was living in Qatar.

Dealing with the extreme grief of losing their child, the Qataris smelled foul play. At once racism became a major factor in the Qatari investigation. The Huang’s were subsequently charged with murder and human trafficking because Qatar just couldn’t believe their story even though the evidence was clear they didn’t murder their child.   
And yet, as Larry illustrates in the article, "Qatar maintained, and has never fully retracted their suspicions that the Huang’s motives were quite clear. Christian or otherwise two Chinese people would never seriously adopt ugly, sick, black African children."

Meanwhile, Qatar's got a huge glaring issue of its own. Oh, and it's ugly. Very ugly:

Report: Mossad Agent Infiltrated Hezbollah's Upper Echelons - Managed to thwart a significant number of major plots against Israeli targets

Mossad 'cell' reportedly managed to thwart a significant number of major plots against Israeli targets; agent was dept. head of foreign ops.

Arutz Sheva - Hezbollah says it recently exposed a Mossad agent embedded among its "elite operations unit", in what the Iranian-backed terror group says is "the most serious [intelligence] breach in Hezbollah's history."

According to Lebanese media reports, "sources close to Hezbollah" claimed an Israeli intelligence cell - comprised of four Hezbollah members under the command of the Mossad agent - had managed to foil a number of attempts by the Shia Islamist group to carry out attacks in revenge for the assassination of its most senior military chief, Imad Mughniyeh, back in 2008.

Israel never confirmed or denied it killed Mughniyeh, who died in a massive car bomb blast in Syria, but Israeli intelligence services are widely believed to be the most likely party to have targeted the elusive terrorist kingpin.

According to the latest dramatic report, the Mossad infiltrator had managed to climb the ranks within Hezbollah to become the deputy head of the terrorist group's "foreign operations apparatus", known as Unit 910.

Hezbollah sources claimed the alleged agent - a man from south Lebanon identified only by his initials, "M.Sh" - received several payments of $1 million from the Mossad.    Read More

Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton Asks GOP Leaders for House Voting Privileges

Roll Call - Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton, D-D.C., sent a letter to House Republican leadership Tuesday asking that she be granted a vote on the House floor in the 114th Congress.

Currently, Norton can vote in committee, but she does not have a vote on the House floor or Committee of the Whole. The District of Columbia delegate, other delegates and Puerto Rico’s resident commissioner were granted floor votes in the 103rd, 110th and 111th Congresses, when Democrats had the majority. They could vote in the Committee of the Whole, as long as their votes were not decisive.

Republican majorities in the 104th, 105th, 106th, 107th, 108th, 109th, 112th and 113th Congresses did not allow delegates and the resident commissioner to vote on the floor. In a letter to Speaker John A. Boehner, R-Ohio, and Rules Chairman Pete Sessions, R-Texas, Norton pointed to District residents’ lack of representation in Congress, despite fulfilling their civic duties.

“The American citizens who live in the nation’s capital have always been proud to fully participate in all of the obligations of citizenship, including fighting and dying in every war, … paying full federal taxes, and serving on federal juries,” Norton wrote in the letter, according to a statement released by her office. “I ask only that the House, where I am privileged to serve, grant D.C. residents the modicum of respect the vote in the Committee of the Whole would afford.”    Read More

HHS Violates ACORN Funding Ban to Pay for Obamacare Navigators

Judicial Watch - Despite a 5-year-old congressional ban on federal funding for the notably corrupt Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN), Judicial Watch has obtained documents that show a chunk of taxpayer money went to an affiliate serving as an Obamacare “navigator.”

The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) violated the ACORN funding ban by awarding a Louisiana nonprofit called Southern United Neighborhoods (SUN) a $1.3 million Obamacare navigator grant to recruit customers for the president’s disastrous healthcare law and help them “navigate” the complicated insurance exchanges. 

Headquartered in New Orleans, SUN is dedicated to combating poverty, discrimination and community deterioration that keep low-income people from taking advantage of their rights and opportunities, according to its website.

The group shares its address—and government grants—with another like-minded nonprofit called United Labor Unions Council Local 100, established by Wade Rathke, the radical left-wing community organizer that also founded ACORN. It’s not clear in the documents obtained by JW how much of the $1.3 million HHS grant actually went to Rathke’s local, which is one of SUN’s four partner organizations, but the point remains that the group is an ACORN successor specifically prevented by federal law from receiving taxpayer dollars.   Read More

Sydney Hostage-Taker Terrorist Swore Loyalty to ISIS A Month Ago - Australian PM asks why he wasn't on terrorist watch list

Australian PM asks why Iranian-born jihadi Man Haron Monis, who took cafe hostage Monday, was not on terrorist watch list.

Arutz Sheva - Australian media has unearthed new details about "hate sheikh" Man Haron Monis (49), who took just over a dozen people hostage in a Sydney cafe Monday before being killed along with two of his victims as police stormed into the cafe.

Most notable among the details revealed about Monis is that roughly a month ago he swore loyalty to the Islamic State (ISIS) terrorist organization; during his hostage taking he had his victims hold a jihadist flag similar to that of ISIS, and aside from demanding to speak to the prime minister also reportedly asked for an ISIS flag.

In November, the notoriously erratic Haron changed from being a Shi'ite Muslim to a Sunni Muslim - he also pledged allegiance to Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the "Caliph" of ISIS and head of the brutal terrorist organization.

Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott on Tuesday asked why Monis wasn't on terror watch lists, saying: "how can someone who has had such a long and checkered history not be on the appropriate watch lists and how can someone like that be entirely at large. These are questions that we need to look at carefully."    Read More

The day the Jews control the town: A Jew Who Works For Christians On Christmas - So They Can Have The Day Off

Larry Hart - I wrote this several years ago when I started the practice of working for Christians on Christmas. And, I want to continue the tradition this year. This is the first time I am trying to do this on social media however, so I don’t know what to expect. We’ll see how it goes. If you live in the Los Angeles area, (please nowhere outside of Los Angeles) and you serve in a job that can be handled by an amateur for Christmas Eve, then let me know. Unfortunately I won’t be able to do this on Christmas day this year. I would like very much to take your place so you can be with your family and friends.

My commitment is genuine, like I indicate in the piece below, it’s my way of support for Christians on Christmas, mainly because of the Left’s attempts over the last decade to bring Christmas celebration to a halt in what is for all intents and purposes a Christian country in which 96% of the population celebrate the holiday. Also its my way of saying thanks to the Christian community’s support for Jewish people and Israel, and for practicing a bit  of just plain goodness the way I was raised to do .

 So, if you think this might be possible for you and you want to do it, contact me and we will see if we can get this scheduled before the holiday. If more than one of you ask me I will decide on the basis of need and location to be able to fulfill what you would call a “good deed” and I would call a “mitzvah.” Let me know through my email.

 –and Merry Christmas

This work below is about the first year I did this, in 2009

Did you ever see “Christmas Time for the Jews,” that Saturday Night Live short by Robert Smigel? It’s a three minute claymation skit of Jews who seem to have their way on Christmas because all the gentiles are home drinking eggnog. It’s very funny, complete with references to Seinfeld, the Daily show and Fiddler on the Roof played by non Jews. Catch it on

Like most Jews I view Christmas as a day off, and I look forward to it. Like the song says it’s a time I can do just about anything I want. I can go to the movies, eat at restaurants and walk the malls relatively free of people. Or, if I want, I can choose to stay home, watch videos, order pizza and vegetate on the couch for the day.

In the past few years I have been hearing about a program that sponsors Jews who want to work for Christians in vital jobs that cannot be abandoned even on Christmas day. Each year as the attack on Christmas from the left grows larger I continue to look at this option as a possible means for me to satisfy two desires. One, to show my support for Christians celebrating Christmas from one Jew who is appalled at the Left’s attack and the Jewish role in that campaign, and two, it appears to me that such a selfless mitzvah probably will not go unnoticed in this world or the next.

I googled “Jews who work for Christians on Christmas.” I got all kinds of hits, from white supremacists accusing Jews of killing Christ, to Jews being warned not to celebrate Christmas. In the middle of all this was an article from last year (2008) in Boulder, Colorado that caught my eye, a group of Jews working for Christians on Christmas. Perfect! I wrote the author and asked him to give me more information. Maybe he could help me find the same group here in L.A., where I live. Not thirty seconds after I sent the query, it came back undeliverable.   Read More

The War Comes to Australia - Why the Sydney café jihadist was no lone wolf

FrontPageMag.Com - The hostage saga in Sydney ended in dramatic fashion yesterday as Australian police and SWAT teams stormed a downtown café after a 16-hour standoff with armed hostage taker, Man Haron Monis. Monis, identified as a Muslim cleric with a criminal record that included sexual assault and accessory to murder, was killed during the operation as were two hostages, identified as a male and female in their 30s. 

Monis, an Iranian national, requested refugee status and asylum in Australia in 1996 and sought to repay Australia’s benevolence by engaging in a vituperative letter-writing campaign directed at the families of fallen Australian soldiers who served in Afghanistan. The letters, in which Monis expresses opposition to the war in Afghanistan, refers to the fallen soldiers as “pigs” and compares them to Hitler. Australian authorities charged him with “using a postal or similar service to menace, harass or cause offense [sic]” for which he received a relatively mild sentence of 300 hours of community service.

Australian police ought to be commended for their efficiency and professionalism in quickly subduing the terrorist and preventing more bloodshed, yet the incident raises more questions than it answers. How was a man with such a shady past, with no viable means of supporting himself, who was charged with such serious crimes, allowed to walk on bail and why was his refugee status not revoked? These are questions that the Australian justice system and immigration authorities will have to grapple with in the coming days.   Read More

Mark Levin: Overwhelming Majority of Republicans Violated Their Oath of Office

CNSNews.Com -

Nationally syndicated radio host Mark Levin said on his radio show yesterday that the overwhelming majority of Republicans in Congress "voted to violate the Constitution and violated their oaths of office" when they voted for the omnibus spending bill.

Listen to the radio segment

“67 Republicans in the House said no.” stated Levin, and 18 Republicans in the Senate also said no. So, said Levin: 

“The overwhelming majority of Republicans in the House and Senate voted for Obamacare, voted for amnesty, voted to violate the constitution and violated their oaths of office, and undermined the last election, and undermined your franchise. None of this was presented to you before you voted on the first Tuesday of November. None of these people said that they are working on a massive spending bill with Obama that will fund Obamacare and whatever imperial amnesty he executes – not one of them!   Read More

State Department: 9,000 Syrians are on the way to the US - But, UN Refugee Agency to Block Canadian Efforts to Resettle Syrian Christians

Anne Richard Asst. Sec. of State for Population, Refugees and Migration: We take the refugees the UN picks for us.

State Department announces that 9,000 Syrians are on the way to the US

Refugee Resettlement Watch - There are two other news accounts of this story you should see.  First, at Investor’s Business Daily: “US Vetting 9,000 Syrian Refugees To Weed Out Jihadists Before Granting Asylum.”  And, at World Net Daily: “U.N. sending thousands of Muslims to America.”  As of right now there are 975 comments to the WND article.

Where might they be going? Click here.

Anne Richard, Asst. Secretary of State went to that UN meeting in Geneva this week (we mentioned the “pledging conference” here) and dropped the bomb.  The UN has picked our Syrians for us, and if the war ended tomorrow, you can be sure that once the pipeline is flowing it won’t stop for years! Security is a big concern and apparently the reason for the delay, but we are taking them anyway!   Read More

So where might those Syrians be going?

Yesterday we learned that the Obama Administration committed the United States to take 9,000 Syrian (mostly Muslim) refugees  in FY 2015 which is already two months underway, and place them throughout America at some of their 180 cities where federal contractors are waiting to sign them up for social services, give them employment counseling, take care of their health needs and sign the children up for school.

Here is a map of where they could be placed.  Is your city on it?

Sydney Hostage Taker Told Obama to Stop Hiding his Religion

Daniel Greenfield - Sheikh Haron, the Sydney hostage taker, had an extensive website which is currently down where he posted open letters to assorted politicians. These included a letter to Obama written during his original campaign.

12 June 2008

Senator Barack Obama
713 Hart Senate Office Building
Washington, D.C. 20510 USA

Dear Brother Barack Obama

I got your message. Hiding the religion for political purposes is not permitted. When a Muslim is asked about her/his religion, she/he must tell the truth. You think it is permissible by Shariah law to hide your religion to achieve some positions to be able to help Islam and to give a better service to Muslims. You are wrong, Shariah law doesn’t allow you to do so, your reason for hiding your religion Islamically is not a legitimate reason. You must rely on Allah (SWT) and avoid the satanic style of politics.    Read More

Report Finds Teachers Woefully Unprepared for Classroom Challenges

Teachers are not ready to teach.

That was the bold message delivered by the National Council on Teacher Quality last week in a scathing national report on educators.

Atop a long list of findings, the report says most states haven’t done enough to prepare new teachers for the higher standards their students are expected to achieve.

“With such a profound change occurring in K-12 student standards across the country, it would stand to reason that parallel changes would occur on the teacher side,” said Sandi Jabos, vice president and managing director for state policy for the council. “States need to ensure that new teachers are adequately supported in the transition to higher standards and beyond.

And there is no better place to start than where new teachers begin to learn their craft — in teacher preparation programs.”

The eighth annual State Teacher Policy Yearbook examines the effectiveness of educators in all 50 states and concluded American school districts are mostly falling short in delivering well-prepared teachers, expanding the teaching pool and identifying and getting rid of ineffective teachers while retaining effective teachers.

Most states received their highest marks in the eight-year history of the study “because of significant reform, particularly in the areas of teacher evaluation and related teacher effectiveness policies,” according to the NCTQ.

Florida, Indiana and Rhode Island each earned a B-plus, the highest grade in the country, for raising admission standards for teacher preparation institutions, requiring teachers to demonstrate knowledge of the content they will be licensed to teach and collecting the kinds of data that will help hold teacher preparation programs accountable for giving new teachers the tools they need to succeed.

Montana got an F, the only failing grade in the country.

Kerry turns to Vatican for help with Guantanamo Bay detainees - In coming up with “humanitarian solutions”

The Hill - Secretary of State John Kerry on Monday asked the Vatican for help in coming up with “humanitarian solutions” for the remaining inmates at the prison in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, Reuters reported.

Kerry made the request during a meeting with his counterpart, Cardinal Pietro Parolin, at the Vatican.

The U.S. asked for "the Holy See's assistance in seeking adequate humanitarian solutions for current inmates," Vatican spokesman Father Federico Lombardi said in comments published on the Vatican Radio website. He gave no hint of what kind of specific aid Kerry requested.    Read More

Creed's Christian Frontman Scott Stapp Threatened to Assassinate Obama, Relatives Claim

Christian Post - Relatives of Scott Stapp, Grammy Award-winning singer and former frontman of the popular '90s rock band "Creed," made a 911 call last month saying he believed he was part of the CIA, and was supposed to assassinate President Obama, according to a celebrity news website.

Scott was placed on an involuntary psych hold last month, but he went missing and was spotted cruising around his neighborhood, shirtless on a bicycle, his sister-in-law told a 911 dispatcher, reports TMZ, which obtained new 911 tapes.

She said Stapp claimed to be a CIA agent and his mission was to assassinate Obama.

Stapp's wife, Jaclyn Stapp, told the dispatcher that her husband had printed out about 600 pages of CIA documents, supposedly downloaded from the Internet, put them in a bag and took off on his bike.

Stapp also made a 911 call, and said his wife had stolen his truck which is why he was on a bike. He told cops later that his wife had stolen money from him, and decided to get him locked up after being confronted.    Read More

Conservative super-PAC ads rip GOP leaders over spending bill - Will air in congressional districts of Boehner, McCarthy & Scalise

The Hill - A conservative super-PAC is airing radio ads hammering the top three House GOP leaders for negotiating a trillion-dollar spending package that didn’t directly challenge President Obama’s executive actions on immigration.

The ads, backed by $80,000 from the super-PAC arm of the Senate Conservatives Fund, will air for one week in the congressional districts of House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) and Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) — all of whom voted for the “cromnibus” spending bill.

“Instead of fighting to defend the Constitution,” a female narrator says in one ad, “Speaker John Boehner schemed with the Democrat-controlled Senate to rush through a massive spending bill that fully funded Obamacare.

“And the president’s unlawful amnesty,” a male narrator chimes in.   Read More

Terrorist Recruitment of American Youth Continues: ISIS More Popular Than Al Shabaab In Minnesota

Candice Lanier

From The Liberty Eagle:

ISIS Propaganda Attracting American Youth

Which city is America’s biggest hotbed for terrorists? If you’re thinking New York or Los Angeles, you’d be mistaken. Think middle America.

Dozens of young men and women have left Minneapolis-Saint Paul in recent years to join Islamic terrorist groups overseas.

Most of these U.S. passport holders hail from the Twin Cities’ large Somali Muslim community.
Some have been suicide bombers. Others star in propaganda videos.

Destination: Islamic State

Their exodus from the Twin Cities began in 2007, with a call to jihad in Somalia, courtesy of the al Qaeda-linked group, al-Shabaab.

Today, their destination is the Islamic State.    Read the rest at TheLibertyEagle.Com

Here’s a Viable Replacement for Obamacare

The Daily Signal (Edmund Haislmaier) - In the wake of Republican mid-term electoral victories, and with support for the president’s health care law registering new lows in the Gallup survey, it is time to consider what a “repeal and replace” strategy for Obamacare might actually look like. 

While it is true that the politics and timing remain fluid, it is still possible to outline substantive changes.

At the top of the list would be replacing the Obamacare premium tax credits for exchange coverage with a new health care tax credit design that is broader, fairer and simpler.

Obamacare provides substantial subsidies for buying health insurance, but only to individuals who have incomes between 100 percent and 400 percent of the federal poverty level (FPL), and only if they purchase coverage through a government-run exchange. Individuals with access to employer-sponsored coverage are ineligible for the new subsidies, and the law fines employers with 50 or more full-time workers if they do not offer coverage. Furthermore, even when someone qualifies for a premium tax credit calculating the correct amount is absurdly complicated. The amount varies not only based on the recipient’s income but also according to the size of his family and the cost of the “reference plan” in the county where they live. There are more than 3,000 counties in the U.S.!

The fairly obvious move would be to replace that complicated design with a uniform tax credit for health insurance available to all Americans. That way those with access to employer coverage could apply the credit to their employer’s plan, and all the employer would have to do is adjust the worker’s tax withholding to reflect the credit. Those who buy coverage on their own could simply authorize their insurer to collect the credit on their behalf and then bill them for the portion of the premium not covered by the credit.

This alternative design would not only be broader and fairer, it would also be much simpler. There would be no need to mandate that employers offer coverage, nor to burden employers with new reporting requirements on their plans and workers—so those provisions could simply be scrapped. There would also be no need for those who buy coverage on their own to use an exchange to determine their eligibility and calculate their credit amount. They could simply buy coverage directly from an insurer, or through a broker or website such as

Next on the reform agenda should be Obamacare’s insurance market rules. While there were certainly some problems with insurance market regulation, they were relatively modest ones that could easily have been remedied with a few thoughtful and limited changes.

Instead, Obamacare imposed a raft of new regulations. Indeed, some of those regulations are downright counterproductive, such as federal benefit mandates that standardize coverage and rating rules that hike premiums by 30 to 40 percent for younger adults—the very consumers who are the most price-sensitive and the most likely to be uninsured!

Congress should replace Obamacare’s sweeping insurance regulations with a more limited and reasonable set of rules, particularly with respect to guaranteed issue of coverage and pre-existing condition exclusions in the individual insurance market. Doing so would not be difficult, as Congress previously enacted such reasonable rules for employer-group coverage fifteen years ago. All Congress needs to do now is what it should have done back then—extend to the individual market the same rules that have proven to work in the group market.

Specifically, under the pre-Obamacare group market rules individuals switching from one group plan to another (or from group coverage to an individual plan) could not be denied new coverage, be subjected to preexisting-condition exclusions, or be charged higher premiums because of their health status. 

Pre-existing-condition exclusions could only be applied to those without prior coverage, or to those who waited until they needed medical care to enroll in their employer’s plan. Furthermore, there were limits even in those cases. Such individuals could still obtain the group coverage, and any pre-existing medical condition could not be excluded from that coverage for more than 12 months.

Under these reasonable and balanced rules, individuals who get and keep coverage are rewarded, while only those who wait until they are sick to sign up are penalized.  However, these penalties are neither unreasonable nor severe (anyone can still get coverage and any exclusion or rating surcharge is time limited). As proven by experience with the group market, such rules strike the right balance and create the right set of incentives. They could—and should—be applied to the individual market as well. Doing that would also mean Congress could then safely repeal Obamacare’s individual mandate as well.

Medicaid reform would be the third big piece. Ideally, for the non-disabled poor, Medicaid should be converted into a premium assistance program that gives beneficiaries the option of applying the value of their government subsidy to private coverage of their choice.  That would include an employer plan if a beneficiary has a job that offers such coverage.

While Congress should consider other changes as well, these three are the most significant ones. 

Enacting them — either collectively or sequentially—would eliminate most of the complexity and confusion engendered by Obamacare, while also avoiding the law’s distorting effects on employment and labor markets. They also offer a much simpler, and fairer, path to improving access to health insurance and medical care for all Americans.

Rand Paul introduces bill to undo Obama's immigration order - Preventing Executive Overreach on Immigration Act

The Hill reports:

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) has filed a bill seeking to repeal President Obama's executive order that delays deportation of five million immigrants, the Courier Journal reported Saturday.

Paul's bill, “Preventing Executive Overreach on Immigration Act,” is companion legislation to a House bill passed last week from Rep. Ted Yoho (R-Fla.)
