Kayla Jean Mueller Confirmed Dead
By: Diane Sori

This is part of the last letter 26-year old Kayla Jean Mueller wrote to her parents last November.

May she (and all the other hostages these savages murdered) Rest in Everlasting Peace.

And may ISIS be taken out...every last freakin' one of them along with those who support them both outwardly and 'behind the scenes'...and you all know of who and what I speak.

Oh and BTW, these savages sent her parents pictures of her dead body as proof.

In two interviews on my radio program Monday, United States Senator Marco Rubio and former U.N. Ambassador John Bolton both made clear that the "deal" negotiated by President Obama and his former and current Secretaries of State Hillary Clinton and John Kerry is an unacceptable appeasement of the nuclear ambitions of the Islamic Republic of Iran.

The transcript and audio of the interview with Senator Rubio is here.
The transcript and audio of the interview with Ambassador Bolton is here.

These interviews, in which each man delivers detailed critiques of the Obama-Clinton-Kerry Iran negotiations and looming agreement with the mullahs, underscore why national security hawks are eager for both men to join the 2016 field of would-be presidential nominees. Both men in fact strongly suggested that would be doing so.

I asked Rubio about the prospect of running against his friend and mentor, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush. "I wouldn’t be running against Jeb Bush," Rubio responded. "If I ran, I would run because I believe I’m the right person for the right time in our country’s history."

He continued:

And certainly, voters will make that decision, not me. My job is to go out and do the best I can if I decide to run for president to convince them that that’s me. But I have admiration for him, and continue to have personal affection for him as well. I think he’s going to be a very strong candidate. He’s going to raise a lot of money, has a lot of smart people around him on his team. He’ll be a very significant candidate. But I don’t, I wouldn’t view it as me running against Jeb Bush. I was considering, I would consider running whether he was in the race or not in the race.

And so me, it really has nothing to do with him. It has to do about where I feel like I can best serve America at this time in America’s history, and at this time in my life and my career.

When I asked Rubio if he needed to decide soon, he responded: "Yeah. Yes, absolutely. I think that running for president, especially in states like Iowa and New Hampshire, those are states that expect to meet the candidates on multiple occasions and get the measure they take of the person."

When I pressed Bolton on his plans, the most visible hawk in America responded:

You know, I’m not a politician. I’ve never run for office. I understand that that’s a disadvantage in contemporary America. We’re not in Howard Baker’s land of citizen legislators anymore. But I agree. Somebody’s got to do it. It may be that one or more elected politicians will step forward in the Republican Party. I don’t discount that prospect. I’m not driven here predominantly by personal ambition. I’m driven by a concern that our nation has slipped for six years in its consciousness of these threats, and that when reality intrudes again, as I’m afraid it will, it will be at a devastating cost if we’re not prepared.
The White House released a statement earlier today confirming American aid worker and ISIS abductee Kayla Mueller is deceased. Prayers:
It is with profound sadness that we have learned of the death of Kayla Jean Mueller. On behalf of the American people, Michelle and I convey our deepest condolences to Kayla’s family – her parents, Marsha and Carl, and her brother Eric and his family – and all of those who loved Kayla dearly. At this time of unimaginable suffering, the country shares in their grief. 
Kayla dedicated her life to helping others in need at home and around the world. In Prescott, Arizona, she volunteered at a women’s shelter and worked at an HIV/AIDS clinic. She worked with humanitarian organizations in India, Israel, and the Palestinian territories, compelled by her desire to serve others. Eventually, her path took her to Turkey, where she helped provide comfort and support to Syrian refugees forced to flee their homes during the war. Kayla’s compassion and dedication to assisting those in need shows us that even amongst unconscionable evil, the essential decency of humanity can live on.
Kayla represents what is best about America, and expressed her deep pride in the freedoms that we Americans enjoy, and that so many others strive for around the world. She said: “Here we are. Free to speak out without fear of being killed, blessed to be protected by the same law we are subjected to, free to see our families as we please, free to cross borders and free to disagree. We have many people to thank for these freedoms and I see it as an injustice not to use them to their fullest.”
"No matter how long it takes, the United States will find and bring to justice the terrorists who are responsible for Kayla’s captivity and death," the statement went on to say. The New York Times, meanwhile, has some additional information about how she was killed:
The parents of Kayla Mueller, the American aid worker abducted in 2013 by the Islamic State, issued a statement Tuesday confirming her death, four days after the militant group claimed she had been killed in a Jordanian airstrike. 
The family, which had publicly maintained hope that she was still alive after the Islamic State said she had been killed but had offered no proof, did not indicate how they knew of their daughter’s death.
Here's part of the family statement:
"We are heartbroken to share that we've received confirmation that Kayla Jean Mueller, has lost her life," Mueller's parents, Carl and Marsha, and brother Eric, said in a statement. "Kayla was a compassionate and devoted humanitarian. She dedicated the whole of her young life to helping those in need of freedom, justice, and peace." 
The statement from Mueller's family did not elaborate on how it had learned of Mueller's death or the circumstances behind it.
This is heartbreaking and a terrible tragedy. Mueller traveled to some of the world’s most dangerous places as a humanitarian to alleviate suffering and bring joy to the hopeless. She was reportedly kidnapped “while leaving a hospital,” of all places. And while she was reportedly killed in an airstrike, according to various media reports, that's impossible to confirm at this time.

Mueller was 26-years-old and is the fourth known American to be killed while languishing in ISIS captivity.

Obama: Media overstates terror threat as opposed to “longer-term problem of climate change”

OBAMA-STONED-NBCObama’s timing couldn’t be worse. First there was this:

“The fiddling with temperature data is the biggest science scandal ever,” by Christopher Booker, the Telegraph, February 7, 2015:
When future generations look back on the global-warming scare of the past 30 years, nothing will shock them more than the extent to which the official temperature records – on which the entire panic ultimately rested – were systematically “adjusted” to show the Earth as having warmed much more than the actual data justified.
Two weeks ago, under the headline “How we are being tricked by flawed data on global warming”, I wrote about Paul Homewood, who, on his Notalotofpeopleknowthat blog, had checked the published temperature graphs for three weather stations in Paraguay against the temperatures that had originally been recorded. In each instance, the actual trend of 60 years of data had been dramatically reversed, so that a cooling trend was changed to one that showed a marked warming….
But Obama is entirely oblivious. He readily agrees with Matthew Yglesias’ contention that “the media sometimes overstates the level of alarm people should have about terrorism and this kind of chaos, as opposed to a longer-term problem of climate change and epidemic disease.”

Also, it is not surprising that in an interview devoted entirely to foreign policy, Obama never once mentions Islam, or even “Islamist.” He does refer to “violent extremism,” which seems to be his euphemism of choice these days, as it is also the name of his Countering Violent Extremism summit, which should be renamed Countering the Threat We Dare Not Name.

Worst of all, he refers to “violent, vicious zealots who behead people or randomly shoot a bunch of folks in a deli in Paris.” No one was randomly shot in that “deli in Paris.” It was a kosher supermarket, and the people who were murdered there were murdered because they were Jews. They were murdered by people who were animated by the Qur’an’s relentless Jew-hatred and labeling of the Jews as the worst enemies of the Muslims (5:82). But that, too, is a threat that Obama dares not name.

It’s also significant that he gave this massive, detailed, extensive interview to Vox, a far-Left publication that just last Saturday was claiming that those who took issue with Obama’s reprehensible moral equivalence regarding the Crusades were just looking for an excuse to hate Muslims. That is the milieu from which Obama comes, and in which he is most comfortable. That is, almost certainly, his world view as well: that those who believe that Islam uniquely teaches and justifies violence in a way that Christianity and other religions do not are motivated solely by hatred of Muslims. This is the line that Hamas-linked CAIR and its henchmen have promoted for years. In the White House today, they have their most powerful champion ever.

The Jihad That Lead to the Crusades
Obama’s remarks about the evil of the Crusades, needs to be factually examined in detail. Here is such a list:
0355 After removing a Roman temple from the site (possibly the Temple of Aphrodite built by Hadrian), Constantine I has the Church of the Holy Sepulcher constructed in Jerusalem. Built around the excavated hill of the Crucifixion, legend has it that Constantine’s mother Helena discovered the True Cross here.

Another Obama News Conference...Another Dangerous Obama Lie-Fest
By: Diane Sori

“I don’t want to be coy...the prime minister and I have a very real difference around Iran, around sanctions.” 
- Barack HUSSEIN Obama at yesterday's news conference with German Chancellor Angela Merkel

Another Obama news conference yesterday... more Obama lies...more Obama bloviations...blah blah blah ad-nauseum. And while he droned on and on...how that man loves the sound of his own voice...you have to give FOX News some kudos...they cut their coverage of this joint news conference with German Chancellor Angela Merkel off mid-sentence, because instead of addressing the important issues of the day... including the Benghazi hearings and ISIS...Obama tried to keep focus on his anything but truthful job creation numbers and how close he is to reaching a deal with Iran. Thankfully though he was forced to address his planning on getting us involved in Ukraine's war with Russia as well as his continuing to stab Israel and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in the back.

Now while Merkel...who is due to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin and Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko this Wednesday in Minsk...truly hopes that diplomacy alone will get Putin serious about the peace talks moving forward, Obama of course had to throw his two-cents in. Saying, “We are united in our determination to impose costs on Russia for its actions, including through coordinated sanctions,” Merkel disagreed with Obama and told him that only if talks fell apart would she consider having Germany place addition sanctions on Russia.

And by the way...this smart woman knows that sanctions do NOT really work...while Obama NOT only wants more sanctions placed on Russia, but said that he is seriously considering arming the Ukrainian rebels with “lethal defensive weapons” to use in their battle against pro-Russian separatists...translation: getting the U.S. involved in yet another sovereign country's civil war...this time with a country fighting Russia...fighting Putin. And again he would be doing so with our taxpayer dollars...thus diverting much needed dollars away from fighting the muslim islamist terrorist group known as ISIS...so of course he will get the U.S. involved in Ukraine.

I guess...NO...I know...Barack HUSSEIN Obama still has NOT learned two important lessons...first, he himself is NO match for the 'Russia Bear'...and second, that he still refuses to see let alone say that radical islam in the guise of ISIS and other such terrorist groups are indeed the true tangible enemy the U.S. faces today...the Ukraine is NOT...that is unless he goes all-out and declares war against Russia...something that would be very unwise to do.

“Arming the rebels will lead to more victims” and while “I understand the debate I believe that more weapons will not lead to the progress Ukraine needs,” Merkel... who has both publicly and in interviews said she is against providing Ukraine with any weapons to fight separatists in its east...said supplying weapons will just add to the the toll in lives lost as well as serving to escalate the war...and how right she is. And being that Merkel is one of the few world leaders who still has a 'cordial' relationship with Vladimit Putin, she understands his mindset as to what he is doing and why he is doing it so much better than Obama ever could. And by Obama's strongly insinuating that he will have the U.S. unilaterally arm the rebels if need be...in a misguided attempt to force Putin back to the peace table...just know that this action is doomed to fail because all it will do is have Putin arming his side with even more weapons...with even more powerful weapons...thus forcing a checkmate if you will...and the loser in this game will again be the Ukrainian people.

So as we are on the verge of yet another Obama failed foreign policy event...and as the tension between Obama and Merkel was clear for all to see...Obama bloviated on that as President his top priority will be to do everything that he can to “create more jobs and opportunity for hardworking families -- for our economic strength is a source of strength in the world." Heaven help the world is all I can say for this following statement of his is riddled with nothing but cleverly hidden inaccuracies that affect NOT only the U.S. economy but the global economy as well. “This morning, we learned that our businesses created 273,000 new jobs last month. All told, our businesses have now created 9.2 million new jobs over 50 consecutive months of job growth.”

First...According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics 257,000 new jobs (non-farm payroll employment) were created in January NOT the 273,000 jobs Obama claimed. And Obama totally ignored the fact that there are still 3,079,000 fewer people employed now than in January 2009 when he first took office. Remember too that the monthly jobs report states net job growth and/or loss NOT 'true' numbers. In fact, the unemployment rate actually rose to 5.7 % from the hoped for staying at 5.69% with the number of those unemployed actually increasing by  291,000, and that was one number Obama chose to completely ignore when addressing the press. After all, this is the man who loves to pretend the number of people who have stopped looking for jobs as well as those demoted to part-time employees just does NOT exist.

And when you add the number of part-time workers into this mix, this translates into underemployment numbers increasing from 11.2% in December to 11.3% in January. And while those now working part-time for economic reasons...folks who lived comfortably as a one-income household before Obama took office...increased by 20,000 during the month of January with part-time workers overall increasing by 40,000...note that the key words are 'part-time' NOT the much need 'full-time' numbers that would indicate a true economic recovery.

Such is the true reality in today's sad economy with Obama at America's helm. And when you consider that now floods of ILLEGALS will soon be competing for the few jobs there are, you can expect these unemployment numbers for 'true' American citizens to fluctuate wildly...and NOT for the better. But hey, Obama had to pat himself on the back as he stood before the cameras even though he knew damn well that he was lying through his teeth...guess he and Brian Williams operate from the same playbook.

And when he ever so briefly touched upon the all-important issue of Iran, Obama tried to poo-poo speculation that further extensions of the Iran nuclear talks were in the making. And in an effort to counter pressure from both Benjamin Netanyahu and Congress to increase sanctions on Iran even before negotiations are completed Obama asked, “What’s the rush?” Saying that the P5+1 is ready to present Iran with a deal...a deal that would allow them to become a 'peaceful' nuclear power, while at the same time giving the international community “absolute assurance, that is verifiable, that they are not pursuing a nuclear weapon,” Obama, while he tries, is fooling NO one.

Fooling NO one for Obama knows damn well that nuclear power of any kind equates to nuclear weapons for Iran as Iran...masters in the islamic art of taqiyya and a country rich in oil who does NOT need nuclear power to meet its people's energy needs...cannot be trusted to stay in the 'so-called' and quite laughable 'peaceful' nuclear power business alone. And anyway, if truth be told Obama wants Iran nuclear armed so they can, when the time is right, wipe Israel off the map...or try to anyway...and thus bring his dream of the Levant to fruition.

And when asked about Netanyahu’s planned address to Congress next month, Obama first and foremost out-and out lied when he said that Netanyahu was out of line in having sought to address Congress two-weeks before Israeli elections...the fact is that John Boehner invited him and originally his address was to be in February....adding that it would be...in his own word...”unusual” for him as president to meet with any world leader right before they faced an election. And we all know this is nothing but double-speak as Obama had NO problem meeting with European leaders two weeks before his own presidential election.

So when all is said and done, yesterday's news conference, even with Chancellor Merkel standing by his side, turned into just another one of Obama's delusional lie-fests but as always the sheeple will lap it up...sad isn't it but yet so sadly true.
