Pope says it is wrong to equate Islam with violence

The Pope appears to be waging his own jihad.

At a time when Christianity worldwide is under siege by Islamic jihadists, the leader of the Catholic Church claims that the quran teaches non-violence. As Christians across the Muslim world live in abject...

Despite the (at times) acrimonious debate surrounding Common Core, the federal government’s national solution to improving education outcomes, it’s worth noting that the controversial program is drawing some level of bipartisan support.

Most notably, perhaps, presumptive 2016 presidential candidate Jeb Bush is very much in favor of it, as are a number of other prominent Republicans. Nevertheless, as Fox News reports, many parents are outraged and alarmed by Common Core, which they perceive is creating a progressive-friendly and impossible-to-understand new curriculum. As a result, it seems, they’re pulling their kids out of public schools in droves:
The home-schooling boom is getting a new push due to opposition to Common Core, the controversial national education standard that some parents’ claim is using their children’s public school lessons to push a political agenda, according to critics of the Washington-backed curriculum. 
North Carolina, already a home-schooling hotbed, saw a 14 percent rise last year in the number of students being educated at home, according to a report from Heartlander Magazine. Similar increases have been seen in Virginia, California and New York, according to education activists. “If you look at national, and even state polls, you can see that the more familiar people become with Common Core, the more they dislike it,” Bob Lubke, a senior policy analyst for the North Carolina-based Civitas Institute, told “They feel like they are losing control of what their kids are learning.”
Be that as it may, North Carolina’s state government is brushing away concerns that the state’s enrollment rates are plummeting:
“We have experienced a statewide increase in enrollment over the past few years,” Vanessa Jeter, a spokeswoman for the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction, told “Since 2012-13, our statewide enrollment has increased by 27,512 students.”
In other words, the rise in homeschooling practices is, at least for now, having a negligible impact on enrollment rates. Nonetheless, there is no denying that homeschooling has become an increasingly viable option for many families. And this isn’t just because of Common Core, either. There are many reasons why parents choose to educate their children in the home -- greater flexibility, autonomy, and oversight to name just a few -- and therefore it should be a choice left to individuals, not the state.

So while it seems evident that Common Core is, in some instances, the final straw for some parents, let's also not forget that home schooling has been popular for many, many years. And thus, one assumes, it will only continue to be, especially as concerns about Common Core grow and become more visible over time.
If you take the best of Rush Limbaugh and Howard Stern, the brilliance of Ben Carson, and add a touch of ethnic humor, you get James T. Harris, one of my favorite talk show hosts on the radio today. Broadcasting from the desert in Old Pueblo on 104.1, KQTH in Tucson, AZ, James T. is the quintessential Tea Party conservative, devout Christian and a dedicated father of three – all rolled into one . . . Oh yeah, and he’s black.

He’s the kind of guy I hate to argue with, which is why I don’t. I recently sat down with him and had a heart to heart about why the black leadership today is failing its own people. James T. doesn’t mince words and never leaves a doubt about where he stands.

Me; “Do you think Obama failed the black people in this country, and if so, why?”

James T.; “Absolutely. Americans of African descent had very high expectations of the first black president. The President was given – I say ‘given’ – everything he needed to be successful.

Everything! Yet the very group that propelled him to victory – twice – still has the highest unemployment rate in the nation. Add to that the ridiculous murder and incarceration rate, coupled with illiteracy and dependency on government handouts, and you have nothing short of a narcissistic despot who, by all statistical evidence, has failed black people – miserably.

“Obama is an ideologue who used race to advance his agenda; he didn’t have black folks’ back.”

Me; “Considering what happened during the race riots in L.A. in the 60’s and more recently in Ferguson, MO, why – when black people riot – do they burn down their own neighborhoods?”

James T.; “Some would point you to America’s racial history as an excuse for rioting and looting. I’m too young for the Civil Rights generation’s melodramatic view of the ‘cup of sorrows.’ A perfect example of my early skepticism was the OJ decision. I was on – what the Civil Rights crew would consider – the ‘wrong side’; I always believed he was guilty of murder even though Mark Furman used the N-word.

“Let’s be honest. Black men have been acquitted of killing white people but the whites don’t react with mass violence. Whites don’t riot or burn down their own neighborhoods. It’s absolutely illogical that blacks do it. I mean, I used to think, what’s the point?”
FBI: 50,000 Law Enforcement Officers Assaulted Last Year 

On Nov. 24, the day news broke that a grand jury had declined to indict a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri, who shot and killed a teenager he said was attacking him, the FBI reported that 76 law enforcement officers were killed in the line of duty in 2013.

Another 49,851 officers, 136 a day, were assaulted while on duty last year, according to the FBI report.

Of the officers who were attacked, 14,565, or 29.2 percent, were injured, and 31.2 percent of the injured officers were attacked while responding to a disturbance call, such as domestic disputes or a bar fight.

According to the FBI, assailants used hands, fists, or feet in about 80 percent of cases, firearms in 4.5 percent, knives or other cutting tools in 1.8 percent, and other weapons in the rest of the cases.

For the 15th straight year, the largest percentage of attacks on officers occurred between midnight and 2 a.m.

Last year 27 of the 76 officers killed in the line of duty died in "felonious acts," and of those officers, 26 were shot and one was hit by a vehicle. Most of the officers killed accidentally in the line of duty were killed in car crashes.

The average age of the officers killed in felonies was 39. Two were female, 25 were white, and two were black.

According to CNS News, the FBI report was based on data collected from 11,468 law enforcement agencies employing 533,895 officers.
Hell Thy Name is Ferguson
By: Diane Sori
On August 9th, 2014 in Ferguson Missouri, 28-year old Police Officer Darren Wilson shot and killed 18-year old Michael Brown, a thug whose actions made him solely responsible for his own demise. On November 24th a grand jury decided NOT to indict Officer Wilson for the shooting as the forensic evidence and the majority of eye-witness testimony clearly pointed to Brown being the aggressor and Wilson acting in self-defense.

On November 29th, Officer Wilson, an almost 4-year veteran of Ferguson's police department, submitted, through his attorney Neil J. Bruntrager, his letter of resignation, in which he stated that “It was my hope to continue in police work, but the safety of other police officers and the community are of paramount importance to me. It is my hope that my resignation will allow the community to heal.”

The words of a true gentleman unlike the words of Brown's thug stepfather Louis Head, words said upon hearing the NO indictment decision...words that helped inflame the bussed-in 'bought and paid for' outside agitators and local thugs who have now taken over the streets of this once quiet St. Louis suburb. Saying, "Burn this motherf---er down" and "Burn the b*tch down" (click on link to see video: these words became the catalyst and rallying cry for the still ongoing riots...riots that have spread to major cities all across the country...riots done in the name of a thug...riots done as race-baiter Al Sharpton (I refuse to call him Reverend) gears up for his 40-city 'Spread the Hate Tour'...while the likes of Jesse Jackson and AG Eric Holder NOT so silently nod their approval.
Rioting and looting...sadly the hallmark of a new generation of young black men and women (YES women) who think the world, and most specifically America, owes them something. Young black men and women who wander aimlessly through life using long ago slavery as their excuse to mask their own inadequacies...their own laziness...their own lack of a true work ethic. Yet another generation of young blacks with the 'gimme-gimme' mindset who want what everybody else has but who do NOT want to work for it, because their version of logic dictates why work for it when they can just take it when the mood hits them...just take it when circumstances allow them to do so.
Or so they think.

White America and most of black America...for those of this mentality are indeed the minority... are tired of their nonsense...tired of bearing a perceived guilt that NO one alive today is guilty of...tired of the race-baiters who thrive on and line their own pockets from the very profitable business that is racism...tired of their cronies in the media who cater to them and cover for them, as they help spew the hate for profit and ratings alone.

And most of America is NOT only tired but sick and tired of watching their homes and businesses going up in flames as the politicians on both sides of the issue stick their two-cents worth into places they have NO business going. NO business going and yet they go and go happily either for publicity's sake or in the case of Barack HUSSEIN Obama, to come out of the closet so-to-speak and outwardly throw his allegiance to those at the root cause of it come out in support of those acting badly...of those who hate whitey as much as he does.

"Stay the course" this vile man said on November 5th when he met with Al Sharpton and a group of protesters from Ferguson. Inserting himself into an issue most definitely NOT befitting the office of the presidency...just like he did with his "If I had a son..." comment in regards to the Trayvon Martin case...this man still refuses to take a stand against the lawlessness that is gripping Ferguson and the nation. But then again why should he as these goings on just add fuel to the fire of his so-wanted race war.

Thriving and feeding off of both real and perceived issues of racial hatred, Obama relishes in all the hate for this is a man who truly hates himself...or should I say he hates his white half simply because he wasn't white enough to 'pass'. You dear reader know it to be the truth as well as I do for self-loathing is the worst kind of hate for it drives everything one does in regards to every decision one makes. And this is the case with Barack HUSSEIN Obama for as certain scenarios present themselves...especially scenarios involving white on black crime...scenarios that he can twist to fit and feed on his hatred of whites...then will be done.  And if said words or actions done have negative repercussions on innocents all the better for the more damage done the more self perceived injustices are least in Obama's mind that is.

And again we come back to the fact that all that is happening...the rioting, the looting, the destroying of being done to avenge a perceived injustice perpetrated upon a poor, innocent, unarmed black boy who some in the media have called a 'Gentle Giant.' But let's get one thing straight...Michael Brown was NO innocent nor was he gentle although at 6 foot 3 inches tall and 300 pounds, to some he might appear as a giant...but again a giant who was anything but gentle. Remember, Officer Wilson testified that even after being shot and shot again, Brown kept lunging at him in an attempt to turn the gun on him. NO...Michael Brown was NOT the sweet innocent child the media and the race-baiters tried to paint him out to be for in NO uncertain terms Michael Brown was NOT just a thug but a bonafide criminal as well.

Michael Brown was NOT raised by his is mother and thug of a stepfather but was raised by his grandmother and biological father, and please note how quiet they've been throughout this entire ordeal. Neither one is calling for revenge or rioting, nor are they hanging out with the likes of Al Sharpton and Brown's mother and stepfather the hopes of 'striking it rich' on the back of their son and grandson's death. They know Michael was NO angel as well as they know his arrest record...and NOT just the sealed unavailable to the public juvenile record but his adult criminal record as well. They know about the burglary, the armed robbery, the assault with bodily injury, and the resisting arrest charges that are in Brown's file as well as the leaked out at trial second degree murder charge that is part of his juvenile record.

They know this well as well as they know they did the best they could, but sometimes even a parent's best efforts fall on deaf ears especially when one has a child swayed by gang mentality and anything but sensibilities (Brown was a member of the Vice Lord's street gang). They know their son and grandson caused his own death by the bad choices he made in life and so they remain they well should.

And as the rioting, the looting, and the destruction continue on in a thug's name, Missouri's Lt. Governor Peter Kinder has rightfully called for the arrest of Michael Brown's stepfather on the grounds of inciting violence for his vile words that egged on those behaving very badly, while at the same time Governor Jay Nixon tries to dig himself out of political fallout of his own doing. Directly to blame for Ferguson being turned into the fires of hell by the very act of his actions coming too little and too late... including NOT having appropriated the needed funding beforehand for the National Guard troops he called in...this man will also fall victim to the happenings in Ferguson and now in St. Louis as well for thanks to his inactions the 'animals' in the streets have caused a loss of revenue to the Ferguson-St. Louis area that tallies from November 1st to date of between 1.5 to 2 BILLION dollars...YES that's BILLION with a capital 'B.'

Merry Christmas dear residents of both Ferguson and St. Louis as our president remains silent with an evil smirk on his the race-baiters continue to stir up the tensions even more...and as the blacks rioting in the streets continue to help perpetrate the old saying that 'you can take the black boy out of the ghetto but you cannot take the ghetto out of the black boy.' And the biggest losers of all are the decent and good black people of Ferguson and the majority of blacks throughout our land whose voices are drowned out by the vocal few led on in their hate by the likes of Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Eric Holder, and the biggest racist of them all...the man sitting in the now known as the 'Hate Whitey House'...Barack HUSSEIN Obama himself.
