CNN does a good report exposing how the children are subjected to forced indoctrinated in ISIS and they interview one 13-year-old who escaped their indoctrination and is now in Turkey:
As the fallout from Benghazi intensifies, Washington officials are continuing to hide information and are intentionally deceiving the public. In its latest update, For the Record follows up on the investigation of the government’s carefully crafted narrative surrounding Benghazi, which may very well be falling apart.
After Putin claimed the nine Russian soldiers captured in Ukraine Wednesday crossed the border accidentally, Canada kindly issued a geography lesson via Twitter to help the Russians sort it out.
With close to 10,000 followers on Twitter, Petricic’s tweet drew a moral equivalence between Israel and Hamas, the former who readily admitted to giving Palestinian children grenades, who dispatched teenage suicide bombers, and who hid behind children while firing one kids. Hamas also killed 160 Palestinian children in the building of their terror attack tunnels.
In his tweet, Petricic linked to a New York Times article which has come under scrutiny for being nothing more than Hamas propaganda. The Times article details a Palestinian teenager’s allegations that he was mistreated during five days of detention by Israeli authorities.
Shipman appears to have had some acquittance with the family of historical revisionist Edward Said. And he’s a rather blatant supporter of Hamas.
Tired of Being Victims, Iraqi Christians Arm Themselves to Fight ISIS; ‘Talking About Jesus and Peace Is Not Enough,’ They Say
Tired of being slaughtered like sheep and chased from a place they have called home for two millennia, some Christian groups in northern Iraq have decided to take up arms to defend their place in the war-torn country from the terror of ISIS.
Two public elementary schools in Texas have covered dedication plaques that referenced God with duct tape after receiving a complaint for the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF). The Midlothian Independent School District confirmed that the plaques had been covered temporarily and will eventually be replaced with dedication plaques that do not reference religion.
The plaques displayed at Mountain Peak Elementary School and Longbranch Elementary School read, “Dedicated in the year of our Lord 1997 to the education of God’s children and their faithful teachers in the name of the Holy Christian Church. Soli Deo Gloria.”

I guess if it’s off the front pages, the Obama administration can ignore it.
After sending a team of experts to “assess” the military and humanitarian situation on Mount Sinjar where tens of thousands of Yazidis were trapped by ISIS forces, the Obama administration declared the humanitarian mission over becauise the American team concluded that the situation was better than reported.
At that point, our aid drops for the thirsty, starving people were halted.
While it’s true that thousands of Yazidis managed to escape, the fact is, according to satellite imagery and direct communication with those still left on the mountain, there are thousands of Yazidis still trapped.
IRAQ (Kurdistan Region): Reaching Out to Refugees Fleeing Militants

Throughout northern Iraq and Syria, the militant group known as the Islamic State (IS or ISIS) has forced tens of thousands into a life without homes, jobs and family. While these refugees face an uncertain future, churches in the Kurdistan region are helping fill that void with help and hope. In particular, many of the churches in the city of Erbil have opened their doors to the multitudes fleeing the advance of ISIS.
“We wanted to show those people that we don’t care if they are Christians, Yazidis or Muslims,” Majeed Mohammed, a pastor in the area, explained. “They are human beings and they have been kicked out of their homes by ISIS. We want to show them that as Christians we love them….”
The long-term fate of the vast number of refugees remains one of the major questions in this urgent humanitarian crisis.
Praise God for Pastor Majeed and other ‘Good Samaritans’ like him who are opening up their churches, homes and hearts to the overwhelming number of refugees in dire need. Pray for continued provision so shelter and basic necessities can be made available to those in their care. May this fine example of love and service greatly encourage the faith of believers and serve as a bold witness to those who do not yet know Jesus Christ in a personal way. Pray also for long-term solutions for the thousands of refugees, so they may have the hope of a brighter future. May the hearts of the militants be touched as well, bringing an end to the atrocious violence in Iraq.

RECENT PRISONER UPDATE
LAOS: Christians Pronounced Not Guilty, Yet Remain Detained
Source: Christian Solidarity Worldwide
On August 6th, five Christians in Savannakhet province were found not guilty of the crime of murdering a convert to Christianity. The believers were arrested on June 23rd after they prayed for the health of Chan, a convert to Christianity who later died from a previously diagnosed illness. In the days following her death, the authorities also pressured and intimidated Chan’s adult children who are also newcomers to the Christian faith. While it has now been ruled that the Christians did not commit any criminal offence, at last report, the five remained detained with no date yet set for their release. (For more information on the arrest of these believers, visit our website.)
Savannakhet province is reportedly one of the worst areas in Laos for religious freedom violations. Opposition includes forced evictions, arrests and detentions, disruption of religious meetings and services, forced participation in animist ceremonies, and threats of endangerment.
Thank the Lord that these believers have been pronounced not guilty, which is most encouraging. However, please join us in praying that they will very soon be released and, therefore, free to return home to their loved ones. Also remember in prayer Chan’s surviving children and other mourning family members and friends who are trying to adapt to life without their loved one. May they all be comforted in knowing that Chan, as a beloved child of God, is now experiencing life to the fullest in heaven. May this reality encourage them to continue following Jesus, despite the opposition they have endured during a difficult time of grieving. Finally, pray that religious freedom will be respected throughout Laos, especially by authorities in Savannakhet province.

Fox News host Megyn Kelly expressed frustration over President Barack Obama’s decision to attend fundraisers in New York and Rhode Island Friday, telling him instead to “get back and start governing.”
Kelly questioned what Obama, who returned this week after spending two weeks on vacation in Martha’s Vineyard, is thinking with his plan to attend a series of fundraisers in the midst of international chaos.
“Really? He’s going to take a timeout from all the work he’s been doing in the Vinyard to go do some fundraising while we consider whether we need to bomb Syria and perhaps put boots on the ground,” the host said on her show Wednesday.
Democratic strategist Penny Lee agreed that “the optics aren’t good” surrounding Obama’s scheduling, but Kelly issued some stronger words, as she proceeded to chastise the commander-in-chief, warning him that “Americans could die” in the current crisis if the Islamic State isn’t put in check.
“Get back and start governing. Americans could die,” she said. They could die in executing those strikes. If they’re not effective, they could die back here in an attack on the homeland or interests elsewhere. What’s he doing?”
Watch Kelly unload on Obama below:
We know of a few examples from the IDF of United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) facilities being used to store weapons and launch rockets at Israel.
This UN agency oversees Palestinian refugee camps — everything from schools and medical clinics, to camp infrastructure. According to its web site, the agency’s 2014-2015 budget is $1.4 billion, and 92 percent of the money comes from UN member states — your tax dollars.
With rockets in the schools being too advanced for the typical junior high science club, UNRWA has some explaining to do. Problem is, it’s not worth holding your breath waiting for the UN to investigate itself, much less publicly release any findings. One tepid UNRWA apology, grainy IDF footage, and a handful of examples which made the news are just the tip of the iceberg.
Palestinian Authority Official: It’s OK To Kill Civilians Because ‘There Are No Innocent Israelis’ [VIDEO]
Senior Palestinian Authority official and Fatah leader Abbas Zaki went on Palestine Today TV in Lebanon last Friday and said he didn’t want to join the International Criminal Court because then his group couldn’t kill Israelis without being tried in the courts, Palestinian Media Watch reports.
In the video, Zaki tells the host against signing the Rome Statute, which would have made the Palestinian Authority part of the ICC, “as long as his country is occupied.”
“If tomorrow you shoot, they’ll say you signed an agreement,” Zaki said. “This is not meant for people who want to liberate their country. … I think the [Palestinian] people’s weapon is pure — they don’t want to kill.”
The video concludes with Zaki saying that “there are no innocent Israelis.”

Not only have the networks not examined the conflict of interest case at the DOJ, they haven’t even bothered to report on the big revelations in the IRS scandal this week.
On Monday, Judicial Watch’s president Tom Fitton told FNC’s Shannon Bream that a Justice Department attorney told them the missing Lois Lerner e-mails do exist. On that same day it was also revealed that the IRS destroyed Lerner’s Blackberry after the congressional probe had begun.

Despite how unsavory and barbaric Islamic groups and persons around the world have been acting—whether Nigeria’s Boko Haram, Mesopotamia’s Islamic State, Somalia’s Shabaab—perhaps few things are as disgusting and cowardly as the Muslim rape of nuns: defenseless Christian women who sacrifice much of their lives to help sick and needy Muslims.
The latest such attack comes from Bangladesh, which is over 90% Muslim in population. In early July, dozens of men armed with machetes, knives and iron rods attacked the convent of PIME (Pontifical Institute of Foreign Missions nuns in Boldipuku), a village mission in north Bangladesh.

President Obama’s reaction to the brutal televised murder of American journalist Jim Foley was heartfelt, to be sure, but it missed the mark. The president deplored such barbarous acts and called them out of place in “the Twenty-First Century.”
That begs the question: Whose Twenty-First Century?
President Obama promised Hope and Change in 2009. He started off with his first foreign summit, in London, early that year.
He actually bowed to King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia. That was certainly change. No president of the United States had ever bowed to anyone before. When John F. Kennedy met with the newly elevated Pope Paul VI in the Vatican in 1963, our first Catholic President made a point of not kneeling to the Pontiff. So great was JFK’s respect for the history and traditions of the U.S. presidency that he spoke respectfully to the Pope, but remembered his own role.
In King Abdullah’s Kingdom, people who convert to Christianity are beheaded and their headless bodies are then crucified. Saudi Arabia has one of the worst human rights records in the world. Simply put, when our State Department has to report on religious freedom, its section on Saudi Arabia can be brief: There is no religious freedom in Saudi Arabia. And there, the Calendar states clearly, the Year is 1435 A.H. (That’s in recognition of the Hijri, or Muslim calendar, which dates from the Hegirah.)
So, when speaking respectfully to Muslims, calling this the Twenty-First Century is wholly out of place. For them it is the Fifteenth Century.

Mark Levin opened his show tonight with Meet the Press music playing in the background to get your attention, declaring that we are in a constitutional crisis and saying it is the news of the century that isn’t being reported. He proceeded to do the job the media refuses to do, explaining how the Constitution is under attack in a myriad of ways by the Obama administration.
The town rejected the Islamic center on zoning grounds, but at a meeting, some opponents of the project “made disparaging remarks about the Muslim faith.” Time to call in the Thought Police! Time for Obama’s feds to force the mosque on this city! It is impossible to have a mature discussion about mosques in the U.S. It is impossible to point out that 80% of mosques in the U.S. are Saudi-funded, and that four separate, independent studies since 1998 have found that 80% also teach hatred of Jews and Christians and the supremacy of Sharia over Constitutional law. Anyone who points out such things is immediately accused of “racism,” “bigotry,” “hatred” and “Islamophobia.”
Whatever they may disagree about, Western leaders are in complete agreement about one thing: the new self-styled caliphate, the Islamic State, has nothing whatsoever to do with Islam. It’s a comforting, reassuring vision for Western non-Muslims facing a massive influx of Muslim immigrants and jittery about the prospect of Islamic terrorism, except for just one problem: it’s entirely false.
Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. is enjoying a tidal wave of laudatory press coverage for his activism on the Ferguson, Mo., shooting and subsequent protests. In the 1990s, though, Mr. Holder ignored plenty of cases of District of Columbia black cops killing unarmed black civilians — even when policemen lied about the shootings.
IT APPEARS HOLDER IS A WHITE-HATING RACIST.

Since there is very little doubt this agreement will have little impact on a global scale, Buck offered a different reasoning as to why the President is working so hard to negotiate this deal.
“The true environmentalist left just wants to use this kind of an agreement as a mechanism for the transfer of wealth… from us to other countries around the world. That’s what this is actually really about,”
The Environmental Protection Agency’s proposed global warming regulations aren’t just about stemming global temperature rises — according to agency’s chief, they are also about “justice” for “communities of color.”
“Carbon pollution standards are an issue of justice,” said EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy in a teleconference call with environmental activists. “If we want to protect communities of color, we need to protect them from climate change.”

Regardless of one’s position on the political spectrum, we can all agree that this was a horrible tragedy and needless discarding of a precious life. How could it have been avoided? Two obvious answers: The officer could have ignored his duty and backed off when it became apparent that his instructions would not be followed, thereby avoiding a confrontation, or Brown could have complied with the officer’s instructions, as required by his civic duties.

On Monday, Mark Levin asserted that he believed there was a push to nationalize local police forces through the Justice Department.
Liberal democracy, primarily concerned with restraining man’s worst inclinations, offers no resolution to that predicament. Enter youngsters of a certain familiar type — per Hannan, “male, typically in their twenties or early thirties, with some education, narcissistic, lacking in empathy, lonely, unsuccessful with women, often with a history of petty crime” — and familiar existential distress is easily perverted into heavenward aspirations. This is the type who becomes a terrorist: not the especially pious or the fanatically righteous but the beset — whose psychopathologies turn them the wrong way in their very human desire to reconcile themselves to mortality and injustice (in sum, to the human condition) — and the empty, who look for transcendence in a mundane cause and find there their raison d’être. The degree of their brutality is a function of the zealousness of their pursuit.
The moral and ideological divide between Israel and Hamas is so self-evident that the only way to ignore it is by embracing and cultivating ignorance.

We’re still only seeing the tip of the iceberg in the horrifying crimes committed by Muslim settlers against the children of the UK.
As Danny Vinik pointed out in the liberal New Republic, if Obama can suspend one law, a Republican president could suspend, say, the capital gains tax. Ross Douthat, the normally mild-mannered conservative New York Times columnist, said granting amnesty to 5 million illegals would be “presidential caesarism.” As Elihu Root might put it, you’re a damned fool and should stop.
The British embassy in Washington has apologised after tweeting a picture of a White House cake surrounded by sparklers, “commemorating” the burning of the building 200 years ago.
The US presidential residence was set on fire by British forces in 1814 during the “War of 1812″ with the United States.
A number of Twitter users said the embassy’s tweet was “in poor taste”.
The embassy later said: “Apologies for earlier Tweet.”
It added: “We meant to mark an event in history & celebrate our strong friendship today.”
British troops led by Maj Gen Robert Ross, from Northern Ireland, attacked and burned public buildings including the Capitol, Washington Navy Yard and the president’s mansion during the conflict.
It was the only time since the American War of Independence that a foreign power has captured and occupied Washington.

A top researcher at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) played a key role in helping uncover data manipulation by the CDC. This fraud obscured a higher incidence of autism in African-American boys. The whistleblower, Dr. William Thompson, came forward after a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for original data on an autism study was filed and these highly sensitive documents were received with the assistance of U.S. Representative Darrell Issa, Chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. The CDC documents and discussions with the whistleblower reveal widespread manipulation of scientific data and top-down pressure on CDC scientists to suppress a causal link between the MMR vaccine and later autism diagnosis, particularly in a subset of African-American males who received their immunization “on-time” in accordance with the recommended CDC schedule.
In season two, For The Record investigated the changing role of media in keeping the nation’s politicians honest. As newsroom budgets shrink and other supposedly impartial journalists are willing to overlook scandals involving partisan allies, groups like Judicial Watch have stepped in. They’ve investigated scandals from Benghazi to the IRS targeting, and have now uncovered evidence of a new scandal that reaches all the way to the White House.
Revealed: How fear of being seen as racist stopped social workers saving up to 1,400 children from sexual exploitation at the hands of Asian men in just ONE TOWN
The sexual abuse of about 1,400 children at the hands of Asian men went unreported for 16 years because staff feared they would be seen as racist, a report said today.
Children as young as 11 were trafficked, beaten, and raped by large numbers of men between 1997 and 2013 in Rotherham, South Yorkshire, the council commissioned review into child protection revealed.
