Coptic Christians another group for ISIS to kill and Obama to ignore

By Ed Wood, staff writer

ISIS has released a videotape of the public beheading of twenty-one Coptic Christians somewhere along the coast of Libya.  I hate to admit it, but I didn’t even know what a Coptic Christian was.  So I looked it up.  “Coptic” means “Egyptian” and Christians living in Egypt identify themselves as Coptic Christians.  Pretty simple.

Copts were organized between A.D. 42 – A.D. 62 and consider John Mark, the author of the Gospel of Mark, to be their founder.  Over the years, Egypt fell under the colonial rule of Italy which demanded loyalty to Roman rulers.  The Copts refused to show allegiance to any but the Christ, so the usual persecution took place. 

In A. D. 641, Coptic Christians were rescued from the Roman Empire by fellow Arabs who demanded adherence to their Islamic faith. The Copts went from the frying pan into the fire, for as we have seen, the consequences of refusing to accept Islam are rather severe. Not surprisingly there aren’t many Coptic Christians left.                                                                                                                                                Since the Arab Spring uprising in Cairo, things have not gone well for the Copts in Egypt. In fact, the 21 Coptic Christians murdered by ISIS were seeking work in neighboring Libya, the country America rescued from the dictator Muammar Gaddafi.  Clearly, they were not well received there either.

In a statement released by the Vatican, Pope Francis condemned the beheadings by ISIS terrorists, saying of the Copts, “Their only words were: ‘Jesus, help me!’  They were killed simply for the fact that they were Christians.” “The blood of our Christian brothers and sisters is a testimony which cries out be heard,” continued the Pope.  “It makes no difference whether they be Catholics, Orthodox, Copts or Protestants. They are Christians!” 

President Obama, however, doesn’t appear to be quite so well informed as the Pope.  For while much of the world, including Pope Francis, condemns ISIS for killing the Copts simply because they were Christian, Mr. Obama condemns only “…the despicable and cowardly murder of twenty-one Egyptian citizens in Libya by ISIL-affiliated terrorists.” Twenty-one Egyptian citizens. Obama doesn’t mention the name “Islamic,” or recognize the victims as Christian. But of course, Barack has been out of town.

Bookmakers in Las Vegas are taking bets on how many days it will be until President Obama identifies ISIS for what it truly is.  A better bet might be how many days it will be before the media identifies Barack Hussein Obama for what he truly is.








The left’s takeover of the American military

by Jim Emerson,  staff writer

Obama’s uneasiness with Generals
A hallmark of dictators is the purging of senior military officers in the hope of eliminating any viable opposition to future tyrannical actions. A large number of senior military officials–around 200 flag officers–have been relieved by the Kenyan Muslim in Chief in the last five years. (2) Obama is working diligently to create a totally obedient, Democrat Party controlled military. After the Arab Spring uprising overthrew the old government and installed Muslim Brotherhood President Muhammed Morsi in Egypt, both Morsi and Obama expected Egyptian Military officers to subordinate themselves to the whims of a tyrant with Washington and terrorist connections. Obama watched that experiment closely because it was essentially to become his roadmap to total power in the United States.

Compliant Officer Class
The blogosphere is becoming keenly aware of an ongoing purge of Generals and Admirals in the US Military who are not in lock-step with Obama’s agenda. Senior military officers are being intimidated against speaking out. The real damage will be created and if the left create a “compliant officer class” to carry out the wishes of America’s first elected dictator of the modern era. What is going to stop the Kenyan from ordering the Armed forces to suppress insurgent Tea Partiers? Obama has a history of destroying any opposition and the main stream press has always been more than willing to help him out. If Obama succeeds, leaders of the U.S. Armed Forces will not have the backbone to tell the political class “no” to future commands. Even today there are few combat Generals in the ranks; most senior officers are political animals. That is why there was little opposition to the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy. If any officer spoke up they were first booted out of the cocktail parties and later drummed out the military. In the service this is called a “Soft kill” of someone’s military career.

Obama’s uneasiness
Retired Army Lt. Gen. James Dubik told Political Magazine “There are several basic models of civil-military relations.” The first is the traditional one of separate spheres of authority: “Civilians do policy; the military executes”—but still decides the means of execution. In a second model, “Civilians are the principals, the military are specialized employees. The military can advise, but they must do what the boss says in the way the boss wants, no more and no less.”  (1) He points out the separation of the military from civilian leaders where the leadership sets policy and the military executes. Unfortunately, too many politicians expect military officers to be their unquestioning loyal servants. This breed discontent among the ranks. Politicians tend to be short-sited whereas the traditional military must plan for all contingencies. The Obama administration does not have a grasp of this concept, nor will they. As in Syria, Libya and Egypt the administration didn’t have a clue as to the long term effects of their policies. They were interested only in focusing on favorable political spin for Sunday morning talk shows. But bombing something or killing someone as a symbolic gesture has consequences. Gen. Paul Eaton sums it up best when he said “The military does not take kindly to people asking them to do things without thinking them through.”

Obama’s Chickens coming Home to roost. Obama and Egypt

by Jim Emerson, staff writer

During the so-called Arab Spring, Barack Obama supported Mohamed Morsi, the Muslim Brotherhood’s choice to become Egypt’s president. The fact that he didn’t really win the election made no difference. (1) Morsi immediately attempted to turn the former pro-American nation into a Sharia compliant wasteland. His power play moves to subjugate the military and courts, to rewrite the constitution and make himself the supreme leader of Egypt did not sit well with the Egyptiam people.

Morsi did very little to improve the lives of the people of Egypt but hey, Obama liked the guy; a typical case of a leftist Democrat supporting a tyrant. On June 28 the Egyptian people rose up to remove Morsi from power. The would-be tyrant had to face the reality that the Egyptian people just weren’t enamored with him! It was at this point that the true saviors of the Egyptian people–the Egyptian Military–drove the Muslim Brotherhood and their military arm, al Qaeda from power. But unlike a coup-d’état, the military did not take over the government.

Back in Washington, the Jarret Administration (which Obama just happens to work for) decided that the ouster of Morsi and the crackdown on the terrorist organization, Muslim Brotherhood, was indeed a coup-d’état. The Regime therefore demanded that Morsi be returned to power or military aid to Egypt would be terminated. Naturally, Obama managed to make himself highly unpopular with the Egyptian people and single handedly destroyed the long-term, positive relationship America had with the Arab Republic. Under orders from Valerie Jarret, Barack cut off Military and civilian aid while the Egyptian nation was fighting remnants of the Brotherhood and al Qaeda.  This week Secretary of State Kerry has been dispatched to Egypt for the purpose of convincing Egyptian leaders that Obama didn’t REALLY support the Muslim Brotherhood during Morsi’s reign of terror. It was just a simple misunderstanding. (3)

Not one to miss a golden opportunity, Russian President Vladimir Putin is visiting Egypt, hoping to replace the United States as the main supplier of arms to the Egyptian Military. (2) Once in Cairo “he is expected to announce a major arms sales package as part of efforts to build closer military relations.”  Obama sided with the wrong people and lost another ally in the war against terrorism. Several American defense contractors will have to lay off workers because Obama chased off another customer. Between the NSA scandal and siding with known terrorist organizations, Obama has lost all creditably on the world stage. His chickens have come home to roost.

Barack has cost the US another ally

by Jim Emerson,  staff writer

Losing an Ally
The Egyptian Military has lost faith in the United States. The final straw was the Obama’s Administration overt support for the Muslim Brotherhood. This betrayal of a decades long friendship has driven a wedge between the US and its principle, longtime ally in the Middle East. The Egyptians know they cannot count on Washington for military support so they are looking towards Moscow. The Egyptian/Russian relationship is nothing new. During several skirmishes against Israel the Egyptian military used weapons supplied by Russia to fight against the Jewish nation. In the 70’s Anwar Sadat ended Egypt’s relationship with Moscow and sided with America. Of course he was later killed by Muslim Brotherhood gunmen, predating the raise of al-Qaeda. (1)

Mohammed Morsi was installed as President of Egypt after the Arab Spring revolt of 2011. (2) He was chosen to lead the nation in spite of the fact he actually lost an incredibly corrupt election.  In fact it was the pro-Muslim White House resident and his female lackeys of Jarrett, Powers and Hillary who put pressure on election officials to install Morsi. Once Morsi was placed in office, Obama demanded that the Egyptian Military and judiciary subordinate themselves to him and to the Muslim Brotherhood. But they would not submit to Barack. So now, in the eyes of most Egyptians, the military is their savior both from a Muslim tyrant in Cairo and one in the White House.

Muslim Brotherhood
Egypt is the home of the Muslim Brotherhood. The people of Egypt have seen the true nature of the radical Islamic movement and rejected it. The leaders of the military sided with the people and removed the Muslim Brotherhood’s hand-picked dictator before he could consolidate power.  Obama, the White House Lady Macbeth Valerie Jarrett and Cruella Deville Clinton actively supported the Brotherhood against the Egyptian people and military. The rejection of Washington’s choice has led to the current bloodbath. This is the second revolution in as many years and is likely to determine the future of the Arab nation.

It doesn’t take a genius to figure out why the powers in Egypt no longer trust the United States.  Carter destroyed America’s relationship with Iran. Obama did the same with Egypt.

Strangely enough, both of these American presidents are vehemently anti-Israel. Of course it could just be a coincidence.

The Impeachable Offense

by Gerald V. Todd,  staff writer

The Muslim Brotherhood in the White House!  Did the White House tours compromise their free run of the place! Where is the impeachable offense?

Arif Alikhan – Assistant Secretary for Policy Development for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security
Mohammed Elibiary – Homeland Security Adviser
Rashad Hussain – Special Envoy to the (OIC) Organization of the Islamic Conference
Salam al-Marayati – Obama Adviser – founder Muslim Public Affairs Council and its current executive director
Imam Mohamed Magid – Obama’s Sharia Czar – Islamic Society of North America
Eboo Patel – Advisory Council on Faith-Based Neighborhood Partnerships

And now;

Susan Rice appointed as National Security Adviser
Samantha Power to replace Rice as Ambassador to the United Nations

Some of these radical Muslim sympathizers go back to the first month of BHO’s first reign of terror, er … first (mis)-administration.

And let’s not forget Hillary’s significant other in the State Department – Huma Abedin and her ties to the Egyptian MB where Christians are being persecuted, raped and murdered.

This is where the impeachable offense comes in. The man and his minions solemnly swore to protect and defend the Constitution. He has been actively enabling the imposition of Sharia Law to replace the Constitution that bought our freedom. With Sharia must come conversion to Islam as the religion of the United States and the world?  Some already have an idea who would be the coveted Supreme Caliph.

Accompanying him to impeachment should be every judge that has ruled for the imposition of Sharia on a local basis; for every public, military and diplomatic official who is actively forcing this other half of the culture of death on us. This should include any official who swore on an early version of the Constitution that preceded the Bill of Rights. They have spent American blood and treasure to remove “inconvenient” Muslim dictators who tolerated Christians and Jews while abandoning the people in the Middle East who looked to us to set them free.

The culture of death has two halves: Islam is a theocracy embracing imposed death or slavery for infidels and total second class domination by its caliphs, sheiks and imams over the rank and file. Islam is the ultimate union of “church” and state” the ACLU has cried about for years, but has no trouble with here.  “Progressivism” completes the culture of death with its total disdain for the sanctity of human life at all stages, even to the sexuality on which human survival depends through a man and woman’s covenant with God.

While now working hand in hand, these two are ultimately incompatible with a predictable outcome of bloody conflict the “progressives” are being led to. The two 20th century socialisms – Communism and Nazism should have taught us something. The Islamists have been eliminating “inconvenient” Muslim dictators who had accommodations with the West – of course using American technology, blood and treasure. As Hitler eliminated his “inconvenient” supporters during “The Night of the Long Knives,” would anyone put it past these zealots to execute a “Night of the scimitars” as the only way for a pure caliphate to rule under Sharia? Rough enough being a non-Islamic of any religion but pray for your “progressive “ friends.

Statesmen in 1950 were taking into account that there is a grave danger that the temporal power of Islam may return on a broad scale and with it, the menace that it may shake off a West which has ceased to be Christian and affirm itself as a great anti-Christian world power. Muslim writers say, “When the locust swarms darken vast countries, they bear on their wings these Arabic words, “We are God’s host, each of us has 99 eggs, and if we had 100, we should lay waste to the world and all that is in it.”

I used to think Iran getting a nuclear weapon was the “100th egg.” Today, I’m almost convinced the “100th egg” is the United States of America under Islamic rule. What other nation in the hands of evil men and women could lay waste to the world?
