THE BLACK KETTLE

Proverbs 21:30

American incompetence in a world spinning out of control

There are more examples, but only so much space. With more than two years left to his presidency, agency by agency, policy by policy, President Obama and his administration are running off the rails.

How Christians are Persecuted in the PA

“The persecution of Christians in the Palestinian territories is less severe than in a number of other Muslim countries. Yet, it is still discriminatory and sometimes fatal. However, this is hidden from the international community, partly by false statements from several Palestinian Christian leaders who are in alliance with the Palestinian Authority (PA) and Hamas.”

Former Liberal Filmmaker: “Islam is absolutely our ENEMY”

By The Right Scoop

I gotta hand it to Eric Allen Bell for stepping up to the plate and speaking the truth about Islam. After having read the Koran and the Hadith himself, he says Islam is absolutely our enemy.

While Obama declares, in defense of Islam, that no religion condones the killing of innocents, Bell says the Koran doesn’t just condone the killing of unbelievers, it’s obsessed with it.

Turkey? Antisemitic? Who, Me?

“Being a sperm of Israel in Turkey means… to get used to living on hate speech, insults and curses every day; held accountable for every act of the Israeli government although you may never even have stepped foot in Israel; treated as a ‘foreigner’ in the country where you were born, served in the military and you pay taxes.” — Vedat Haymi Behar, digital marketing solutions coordinator, in Radikal.

In Praise of Benjamin Netanyahu

by Roger L Simon

What would the UN do if it were unable to bash Israel? How would it spend its time? Over half the initiatives proposed by its ludicrous Orwellian arm known as the UN Human Rights Council are in opposition to the behavior or existence of the Jewish state. Forget Boko Haram, ISIS or the Iranian government assassinating dissidents on a regular basis. Forget that not a single country in the UNHRC has made a contribution to humanity in years even vaguely equal to what appears daily on Israel21C. No, it’s the Jews who are the problem.
So Netanyahu had the temerity to state the obvious about the UNHRC, calling it a “terrorist rights council.”

Not surprisingly, our “progressive” State Department demurred:

“We would not agree with that,” Jen Psaki, the State Department spokeswoman, told reporters Monday when asked about what Netanyahu said in his address that day to the U.N. General Assembly.

“We have obviously voiced concerns when we have them about actions that are taken,” she said, referring to the council, “but no, we would certainly not agree with that characterization.”

Oh, really? Then what is it? Here’s what Netanyahu said in context: “By granting international legitimacy to the use of human shields, the U.N.’s Human Rights Council has thus become a terrorist rights council, and it will have repercussions.”

Of course, that’s true and Psaki knows it. She doesn’t have the courage to be honest or her handlers won’t let her be. She and her cohort Marie Harf have become the mealy-mouthed faces of a prevaricating State Department. They are paid to lie.

New Tactic in Left’s Never-Ending War Against Israel: Calling It ‘JSIL’

by Ron Radosh

We now have the latest obscenity in the war against Israel. It comes from three sources — Al Jazeera television, the Russell Tribunal on Palestine held in London, and the German newspaper Deutsche Welle. These are all enemies of Israel who wish nothing less than its destruction.

Their new propaganda tactic is to equate Israel — which they now refer to as JSIL (the Jewish State of Israel in the Levant) — with ISIL (the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant).

According to them, like ISIL in Iraq and Syria, Israel is a terrorist military entity which seeks to recruit foreign fighters into their armed forces, to convert or murder infidels, and to destroy the Palestinians.

Here’s the first paragraph of the the article in Deutshe Welle:

To Better Protect Muslims, AG Holder Set To Ban ‘Religious Profiling’

by Thomas Rose

If one is looking for reasons why Washington has become so caustic, divisive and bitter, look no further than retiring Attorney General Eric Holder. If reports first published by the Los Angeles Times are correct, the always controversial Holder, aged 63, will soon announce a new and permanent ban on so-called ‘religious profiling’ designed to better protect those suspected of jihadist or Islamist activities from federal surveillance.

At the very moment the American state, local and federal law enforcement are trying to get a handle on a spate of Islamist-inspired beheadings and the discovery that Islamic State terror cells are active in at least three major US cities (LA, Boston, and Minneapolis), the US attorney general seems prepared to make it even harder for US law enforcement to crack down against jihadist recruiters and terrorist plots.

Why can’t we talk about Muslim fanatics?

LORNE GUNTER | EDMONTON SUN

Western civilization won’t be defeated by economic collapse or government debt, by an external military force or even its own internal decadence. But it could well be done in by political correctness.

It’s bad enough that United States President Barack Obama could stand bare-faced in front of his nation two weeks ago and insist the ISIS terror group “is not Islamic.”

Huh!? Islam is in their name and behind every murderous, brutal, barbarous act ISIS commits.

There are imams and Muslim scholars who would argue that ISIS is, in fact, the very epitome of Islamic faith put into action. It is possible to debate that those Muslim leaders and ISIS itself are wrong in their interpretation of Islam.

But to insist to the world that ISIS “is not Islamic” is the equivalent of standing in front of a red wall and insisting it is green. It is contrary to what is plainly, clearly, obviously true.

SHOCK BOMBSHELL REPORT: Eric Holder’s ATF Likely Involved in Massive Robbery of AZ Gun Store To Supply Mexican Cartels With Guns During Fast & Furious (VIDEO REPORT)

By Eric Odom

We knew Obama and Holder’s Fast & Furious scandal was about to get ugly, but we didn’t think it would get this ugly, this fast. Newly released documents reveal a potentially damning scenario in which the ATF itself blatantly crashed an Arizona gun store, stealing arms to smuggle across the border, or the ATF Mexican drug cartels to rob the store under the careful watch of the ATF. The video report below makes it very difficult to believe the robbery of the gun store could have happened without the ATF being involved because the store was under heavy ATF surveillance. Yet, somehow the store was robbed and the weapons ended up in the hands of Mexican drug cartels.

Pat Dollard has some thoughts on this.

Oklahoma Jihadist Who Beheaded Colleen Hufford Was Not Fired, the Islamic Ritual Slaughter was “Premeditated”

PAM GELLER

Jah’Keem Yisrael, Islamic State jihadist, was not fired. He was suspended. He was screaming Islamic verses as he beheaded Colleen Hufford.
It was premeditated Islamic ritual slaughter — Jah’Keem went home, grabbed “a large bladed knife” and “returned to get revenge” — sharia-style. In the plant’s administrative office, police say, Nolen attacked 54-year-old Colleen Hufford from behind and severed her head from her body.

Susan Rice: A Reminder of Who She Is (And Isn’t).

By : Kimberly Klacik

Remember when the late State Department veteran, Richard Holbrooke, outright called Susan Rice incompetent? Well that wasn’t as nearly as embarrassing as when Rice was in a interagency teleconference with some pretty official people regarding Rwandan Genocide and said, “If we use the word genocide, and are seen as doing nothing, what will be the effect on the November election?”. I am sure President Clinton’s administration thought the same, but who in their right mind actually says it aloud?

Tragically, Benghazi was not Ms. Rice’s first African blunder. In 1998, Susan Rice was supposed to mediate a peace plan for a war between Ethiopia and Eritrea. But before Eritrea approved the plan, Ms. Rice decided it was such a good plan Eritrea will have to love it, and announced the terms of the peace plan were agreed upon. The announcement was so upsetting to Eritrea the plan was rejected, causing both countries to raise a popular question, turn down for what? Ethiopia bombed the capital of Eritrea, and Eritrea fired back with numerous bombs dropping on Ethiopia. Over 100,000 people were killed in the war Ms. Rice not only failed to end, but inflamed.

Then Secretary of State Madeleine Albright was so furious with Rice, she told her she was grounded and must stay in her room (I mean DC office).

Illegals blow off immigration hearings, govt. conceals it

By: John Hayward

As American government transforms itself into a concierge service for illegal aliens – the imported electorate liberals have been daydreaming about for decades is about to be delivered at last! – the importance of keeping the truth from actual citizens has grown. Remember, you weren’t supposed to know about Obama’s human wave assault this year. The photos of children stacked up like cargo in warehouses were leaked, provoking a crisis that sent immigration rocketing from an issue that didn’t crack the Top 10 lists of voters to their Number One concern. You also weren’t supposed to know about the buses and planes distributing thousands of illegal aliens to communities across the country, making it effectively impossible to deport them.

“Don’t worry about all that,” the American people were told, when the use of public money and resources to ferry illegals hither and yon was discovered. “They’ve all been served notice that they must appear at immigration hearings.” President Obama went so far as claiming that he would purchase billboards across Central America, warning people not to load their children onto the coyote network headed northward, because they would be swiftly returned home, making the money spent on illegally boosting them across the border – and the hideous risk to the children’s safety – all for nothing.

Obama’s political rhetoric was an absolute lie, a complete inversion of reality, and while he prattled on about dastardly smugglers misinforming the poor chumps south of the border to pump up business, the dastardly smugglers were the ones telling the truth. Get across the border and you’re in. The American government has little interest in monitoring you, much less deporting you.

Christian Baker Who Lost Her Shop After Refusing Lesbian Couple’s Wedding Cake Reveals the ‘Two Huge Lies’ She Says Our Culture Has Embraced

A Christian baker who faced virulent protest and eventually lost her shop after refusing to make a wedding cake for a lesbian couple took to her Facebook page Monday to reveal what she says are the “two huge lies” contemporary culture has embraced.

“Our culture has accepted 2 huge lies. The first is that if you disagree with someone’s lifestyle, you must fear or hate them,” wrote Melissa Klein, owner of the embattled Sweet Cakes by Melissa bakery. “Second is that to love someone means that you must agree with everything they believe or do. Both are nonsense.”

She concluded, “You don’t have to compromise convictions to be compassionate.”

Obama’s ’60 Minutes’ dodge tears the Administration apart

By: John Hayward

One of the reasons it’s extremely unwise to put people like Barack Obama in charge of anything is that their frantic efforts to save their own skins have a way of tearing apart the teams they lead. It’s hard to keep up with their ever-shifting excuses and prevarications. A subordinate might find himself fiercely defending every word the boss said on Monday as gospel truth, “clarifying” those words on Tuesday, retracting them on Wednesday, and denying the boss ever said them by the end of the week. Other people in the operation often object to being used as scapegoats for failure, leading to nasty internal battles.

When that team is the gigantic federal government of the United States, and it’s at war with a savage foreign enemy, the results of Obama-style anti-leadership can be catastrophic. His team is now sweating through Day Two of damage control for the President’s latest attempt to spin away his foreign policy failures on “60 Minutes.” When your damage control needs damage control, you’re in a bad place. This particular effort went so badly wrong that even the designated softball pitcher for CBS News, Steve Kroft, felt obliged to call Obama out for lying during what was supposed to be a friendly interview. The intelligence community Obama tried to saddle with the burden of his failures wasted no time speaking up and making it perfectly clear they did warn the President about the threat of ISIS, long ago.

Obama’s Peculiar Position on the Islamic State

by Ali Sina

If Islam is as wonderful as Obama says, why did he leave it? He did leave Islam, didn’t he? He was raised Muslim and, therefore, it seems strange that one could have such a high admiration of a religion that one no longer believes in.
It is also quite strange that Obama does not seem to have the same admiration for the faith that he now claims to be a part of. He has said with sarcasm,

“Which passages of scripture should guide our public policy? Should we go with Leviticus, which suggests slavery is OK and that eating shellfish is an abomination? Or we could go with Deuteronomy, which suggests stoning your child if he strays from the faith?”

Of course the Qur’an is full of verses instructing the believers to slay the unbelievers, cut their heads from above their necks and be harsh with them. But Mr. Obama chooses to ignore all that. Instead, he emphasizes, “We do not consider ourselves a Christian nation.”

Obama: U.S. intelligence underestimated the Islamic State

Robert Spencer

Of course U.S. intelligence underestimated the Islamic State. U.S. intelligence is bound as a matter of policy to pretend that there is no Islamic jihad terrorism, and that when Muslims commit acts of jihad terror, they are misunderstanding their own religion and misapplying its tenets. That means that U.S. intelligence is forbidden to understand the enemy properly; is it any wonder that it underestimated the Islamic State?

The body that established a committee to investigate suspected war crimes – the UN Human Rights Council – has a reputation for singling out Israel.

J’POST

The body that established a committee to investigate suspected war crimes – the UN Human Rights Council – has a reputation for singling out Israel. The committee it appointed is suspected in advance of not having the pursuit of truth as its goal. What is more, even the resolution that set up the committee was worded in a way that suggests “sentence first, verdict afterwards.”

This suspicion is only augmented by the fact that its members do not include a single citizen of the country whose military conduct is the focus of its inquiry – even though Israel has no shortage of retired judges and jurists of international repute. The damage to the inquiry is redoubled when its chair has already declared his desire to see the prime minister of Israel in the dock at the International Court of Justice – that is, the committee’s chair has already formed a negative judgment about the head of the political system that oversees the military whose conduct is to be investigated. He cannot be perceived as an unbiased investigator.
