Obama-Supported Syrian “Rebels” Besiege Christian Villiage, Slaughter Residents, Behead Children

Syrian Rebels Behead And Kill Children In Christian Villages – Conservative Infidel

.

.
Obama’s proxy war on Christianity continues in Syria as his Al Qaeda allies ruthlessly attack and kill innocent unarmed civilians. They are even beheading children. That’s a manly and moral group Hussein is supporting. Those kids must have had it coming. Way to take the moral high ground, Obama!

In typical Hussein “Fast and Furious” fashion, his weapons that he provided and his “freedom fighters” are killing in the name of the United States.

And there is an interesting twist to this that may offer insights into the underlying mission of both Hussein Obama and his Al Qaeda foot soldiers. Some of the inhabitants of the village of Maaloula, where this latest round of inhumanity is occurring, were given the option of converting to Islam or having their heads cut off.

Not the most attractive of options but hey, they’re Christians, so in Hussein’s world, Al Qaeda is just doing the “lord’s work”. Of course the usual gratuitous shouts of “Allahu Akbar” could be heard. Can’t have a bloodthirsty murder spree without that!

We are in the middle of a “Twilight Zone” type of insanity that borders on unbelievable. How did we go so wrong in such a short period of time?

*VIDEO* Obama Regime Complicit In The Deaths Of Countless Illegal Alien Children

Holder’s Victims: The Obama Regime’s War On Poor, Black Children Continues

Holder’s Victims – Washington Free Beacon

.

Coretta Pittman goes well beyond the 40 hours of service required of parents whose children attend the Good Shepherd School in New Orleans. Last year she did 100.

She borrows her mother’s car to take her son Elias, a second grader, to Good Shepherd each morning rather than sending him to a public school across the street. She chooses to work part-time so she can volunteer.

Without a voucher, Pittman would not be able to send Elias to the private Catholic school.

“I love the school,” she said. “I wouldn’t switch him for anything.”

Pittman fears that without the program Elias’s future could be snuffed out, like her nephew. She gets emotional when talking about his death. “Me and my mother raised my nephew from the time he came home from the hospital,” Pittman said. “A year ago, he was killed. He was really smart. I think he could’ve done and been anything that he wanted to.”

“I just wonder if he would’ve had somewhere like Good Shepherd to go, what could have become of him,” she said. “And I’m just hoping that, I don’t want to ever have to wonder what could have become of my son.”

When we find Elias he is sprinting across the playground. Baton in hand, he nearly barrels his cheering classmates over as he finishes his leg of a relay race. We summon him over. Wearing a huge smile, he tells us what he wants to be when he grows up.

“I like math and numbers,” he says. “I want to be a mathematician and a doctor. I’d love to be a police. My auntie’s husband is a police.”

Elias’s favorite part about school: “I get to talk to my friends.”

“I don’t want to imagine what would happen if the program ended,” his mother says. “It gives my son choices and it gives me hope.”

***

The children at St. Leo the Great Catholic Central in New Orleans know more Spanish than I do. Kids from Ms. Margaret Mary’s third grade class stand to recite “Padre Nuestro” – the Lord’s Prayer – when we walk in. Smiling faces greet us with a resounding “good morning” in each classroom.

A portrait of Barack Obama hangs on the wall. The kids don’t know anything about the motions filed by the president’s Justice Department, which could block kids like them from attending schools like St. Leo – better schools than those in the public system they’ve left behind. They know that they love their teachers, and they are learning.

“What frustrates me – I keep hounding on it, but it’s true,” said Ronald Briggs, chairman of the board at Good Shepherd. “The state of Louisiana saves money on the deal. They actually save $16 million a year.”

“The taxpayer wins, the kids win, and the guardians win. So what’s the problem?”

***

As president, one of the first laws Obama signed killed a voucher program in Washington, D.C. Though Congress worked to reinstate the program, Obama has repeatedly tried to defund it in his budget proposals.

Now the Justice Department is going after Louisiana, first seeking a permanent injunction against the state scholarship program, which would put the fate of future voucher recipients in the hands of federal judges. Roughly 6,750 low-income students received a voucher this school year to escape failing schools.

“It’s political. It’s unfortunate. It’s wrong,” said Ann Duplessis, the president of the Louisiana Federation for Children (LFC).

A lifelong Democrat, Duplessis opposed school choice for years until she began to question who the unions were really fighting for.

“It was more of actually looking at those kids,” she said. “I have three girls and three grandchildren. I couldn’t bear the thought of them being in an environment that I didn’t know if they were going to come home that evening.”

“You want to fight for your kids,” she said. “You look in their faces—they’re children.”

Duplessis’s mother was a public school teacher in the 1940s and ‘50s in some of the most prejudiced districts in the south. “The union was absolutely necessary to protect African-Americans’ jobs,” she said.

But today it’s different. “Not that we’re saying we have overcome—but we have advanced,” she said.

“The unions don’t work anymore for our teachers.”

***

Duplessis served in the state senate for seven years, and was crucial in helping grow the charter school movement. She worked with another Democrat, Austin Badon, to pass the scholarship program for New Orleans in 2008.

The program has been under fire ever since. Unions protested the legislature, attempted recall elections, and sued the program all the way to the state supreme court. Nevertheless, a bipartisan bill expanded it statewide in 2012.

“Every year there’s another threat to the program, and we’re still here, year after year,” said Republican Gov. Bobby Jindal in an interview with the Washington Free Beacon. “We survived everything else, just when the program was growing and everything was moving forward all of a sudden here comes the federal government.”

The Justice Department says vouchers are “impeding desegregation,” relying on laws from the 1950s that broke up segregated schools at the height of the Civil Rights movement. One minor problem: the DOJ can’t find the desegregation orders, which are the basis for its case.

In a filing over the weekend, the DOJ backed off its request for an injunction, seeking instead to require a lengthy review process of the program. Louisiana would have to provide information on every voucher application prior to awarding them.

If the government believed a voucher would disrupt the racial balance of a school, they could then request “the assistance” of the court to try to stop individual parent applications.

But Duplessis wonders why race is even an issue. The program operates by lottery, making it color blind.

“We’re at a state in history now, I find it offensive the idea that because you’re in an all black school it’s not as good,” she said. “To me, that is so offensive. I would hope the DOJ would look at desegregating kids out of bad schools.”

Hosanna Christian Academy in Baton Rouge has seen its demographics change dramatically since the introduction of the scholarship program. What used to be a majority white school five years ago is now 80 percent minority. Its rigorous curriculum has not changed at all.

“The idea that an all-white school or an all-black school is somehow better – it shouldn’t matter,” Duplessis said.

“Let’s come into the 21st century here.”

***

Children all across New Orleans travel to attend St. Leo, located on Abundance Street, an area ravaged by Hurricane Katrina. Seventy-five percent of the children attend the school on scholarship.

Principal Carmel Mire said almost every house on Paris Avenue, an adjacent street, had an “X” on its window following the 2005 storm. The X’s marked the loss of a person or animal.

A foot and a half of water flooded the elementary school building, which was built by the church in 1926. All the classrooms in the middle school are on the second floor, so none were damaged.

“Every tragedy is a curse, or it’s a blessed event, it’s what you make it,” said Briggs. “Katrina was a tragedy, but boy, it’s been a blessed event for a lot of things.”

Jamie Roy said that being displaced from the storm exposed parents to better schools in neighboring states. People came back demanding change.

“Before Katrina, lower-income people only went to the schools in their neighborhood, no matter if they were failing or not,” said Roy, the director of development at Good Shepherd. “That’s the choice that they had.”

“It’s like if you lived on this block, and you could only go to this grocery store,” Briggs said. “When you went over there on Monday the meat was rotten, when you went on Tuesday the milk was sour. That’s where you had to go.

“Not anymore.”

***

“As soon as I got to this school they have teaching me so well that every report card I’ve had A’s or B’s, I never failed a grade,” said Brian Ridgley, 11, a junior at Good Shepherd.

“I really thank them for all that they teach me because I’m trying to go to Jesuit, and I wanna go to Ohio State, probably become a football player,” he said.

The school will help him get there. The close-knit family of teachers and administrators allows Good Shepherd to keep tabs on their students after they graduate, providing a support system many of the children do not have. All 12 of the school’s inaugural graduating class of 2008 are now enrolled in college.

If the scholarship program disappeared, Brian said he would be disappointed. “I wouldn’t be able to get educated.”

Niyla Carr, 10, feels the same way. “I would be pretty upset, too, because this is a good school, and I know everyone and they don’t allow bad things to happen.”

***

As Dana Trahan, the upper school principal at Hosanna Christian Academy, enters the school lobby, the “rod of correction” hangs out of his back pocket. “Is it effective?” I ask the receptionist.

“Most of the time,” she says.

The paddle seems mostly for show. At over six feet tall, Trahan is a looming presence, but his jovial manner makes it clear why his students love him. You can’t walk around the school courtyard without seeing a child trying to give an administrator a hug.

In Baton Rouge, parents don’t have many options. Upper class families move to the three best school districts – Zachary, Central, and Baker – to avoid putting their kids in the East Baton Rouge (EBR) Parish.

Hosanna offers parents another choice. Of its 660 students enrolled in pre-kindergarten through 12th grade, 470 receive a voucher, making it the largest scholarship school in the state.

The school’s philosophy revolves around religious instruction, discipline, and heavy parental involvement. Small class sizes allow for a family-like atmosphere, and students falling behind receive special attention after school.

Angela Byrd said she wouldn’t send her kids, Eric and Erion, back to EBR, a district whose superintendent has transferred students from performing schools to failing ones to boost their grades.

“Academically, Erion was struggling,” Byrd said. “Now she’s doing much better, she’s learning study skills.”

“We have kids who say, ‘Oh there was always fighting in the classrooms, and the administration was always yelling, and we felt intimidated. Now we sit in class and learn,’” Trahan said. “To hear those stories, that is what is joyful about this program and about our ability to present them with an environment where they can feel safe and feel ok about learning everyday.”

The school is now at full capacity, but school Dean Russell Marino doesn’t mind the extra work.

“All we know is this: God has blessed us by allowing us to reach our community to a much greater degree with the scholarship program,” he said.

“We are just blessed to have the opportunity to touch a lot of families in this town that can’t afford a private school, but now they can come and get the benefits.”

***

When he visited New Orleans a little over a week ago, Obama did not stop to tour a scholarship school, despite requests from Gov. Jindal.

“I talked to him briefly during his visit,” Jindal said. “We’ve invited him several times.”

The parties will meet in court on Nov. 22. The judge may rule whether parents of scholarship students can be represented as defendants in the case, a position the Justice Department has strongly opposed.

“If the president doesn’t have time to visit schools, at least send the attorney general before you file a lawsuit,” Jindal said. “Come see for yourself the lives you’re disrupting, the people you’re harming.”

There is no doubt the children would be happy to see him. Walking into a first grade class, the teacher asks them to say hello to their guest.

“Welcome to New Orleans!” they yell. “Welcome to Good Shepherd!”

“Ms. Harrington is from Washington, D.C.” Roy says.

“Oh! Say hi to Obama!”

Nearly 350 Scumbags Rounded Up In Massive Child Porn Bust – 386 Children Rescued

Almost 350 Suspects Nabbed In Huge Child Porn Bust – CBS News

.

Toronto building where, Canadian police say, Brian Way, 42, ran video company at heart of child porn operation; multi-nation investigation led to arrests, announced on Nov. 14, 2013, of nearly 350 suspects

.
Nearly 350 people, including school teachers, doctors and actors, have been arrested in what Toronto police called one of the largest child porn busts they had ever seen.

Police said Thursday that 386 children were rescued as a result of the sweeping investigation.

More than 100 people were arrested in Canada and 76 in the U.S. in an investigation dubbed Project Spade. Others were arrested in other countries.

“It is alleged that officers seized hundreds of thousands of videos detailing horrific sexual acts against very young children, some of the worst that they have ever viewed,” Inspector Joanna Beaven-Desjardins said.

Australian Federal Police commander Glen McEwen on Friday confirmed that 65 men had been arrested in Australia as a result of the Canadian investigation, and six Australian children had been removed from harm. Police said the children were “rescued from child exploitation” but did not give more details.

Beaven-Desjardins said the investigation began with a Toronto man accused of running a company since 2005 that distributed child pornography videos.

Police allege that Brian Way, 42, instructed people around the world to create the videos of children ranging from 5 to 12 years of age, then distributed the videos via his company, Azov Films, to international customers. The videos included naked boys from Germany, Romania and Ukraine, which it marketed as naturist movies and claimed were legal in Canada and the United States.

Police said they executed a search warrant at Way’s company and home, seizing about 1,000 pieces of evidence: computers, servers, DVD burners, a video editing suite and hundreds of movies.

Way was charged with 24 offenses, including child pornography. He is in jail.

Police also designated Azov Films as a criminal organization, charging Way with giving directions on behalf of a gang. Beaven-Desjardins said this is the first time in Canada that anyone has been charged with being a part of a criminal organization with respect to child pornography.

Police said they began their investigation in 2010 and worked with Interpol in more than 50 countries including Australia, Spain, Mexico, Norway and Greece.

“This operation shows that international police cooperation works. Despite large amounts of material and that this is time-consuming work, this shows that the Internet is not a safe haven for crimes against children,” Norwegian police spokesman Bjoern-Erik Ludvigsen said in a statement.

The U.S. Postal Inspection Service said it began its investigation by accessing the company website and making undercover purchases.

Beaven-Desjardins said the investigation is ongoing and she believes more arrests will be made.

University Of Kansas Journalism Professor Wishes Death On Children Of NRA Members

KU Professor ‘Wishes Death On Children Of NRA Members’, Calls It ‘God’s Justice’ – Gateway Pundit

.
……….

David Guth, a professor at the University of Kansas’ journalism department, Tweeted out a sick message to the world after Monday’s Navy Yard shooting. He hopes that the children of NRA members are killed by the next crazed mass murderer. And he calls it “God’s justice” on “misguided miscreants”. Equally appalling is that the University stands behind its sick professor who wishes death on children.

According to http://www.campusreform.org/blog/?ID=5086x,

A journalism professor at the University of Kansas (KU) turned to Twitter on Monday to suggest he would like to see the murder of children of National Rifle Association (NRA) members at the hands of a deranged gunman.

“#NavyYardShooting The blood is on the hands of the #NRA,” tweeted David Guth, who is an associate professor of Journalism at the university’s William Allen White School of Journalism.

“Next time, let it be YOUR sons and daughters, he continued. “Shame on you. May God damn you.

Speaking with Campus Reform on Wednesday, Guth confirmed it was he who sent the controversial tweet.

“Hell no, hell no, I do not regret that Tweet,” he said. “I don’t take it back one bit.”

Guth also doubled down on the statement when other Twitter users pressed him, suggesting it was was shameful to call for the death of children.

“God’s justice takes many forms,” he tweeted in response.

And on Monday the associate journalism professor echoed those sentiments on his personal blog, called Snapping Turtle.

“I don’t wish what happened today on anyone,” he wrote. “But if it does happen again – and it likely will – may it happen to those misguided miscreants who suggest that today’s death toll at the Navy Yard would have been lower if the employees there were allowed to pack heat.”

Also in his interview with Campus Reform, he said that he wished “a pox on our Congress and a pox on the NRA” for not instituting gun control policies to prevent mass shootings…

Despite early rumors, the weapon used in the Navy Yard shooting was not an assault weapon, but a shotgun typically used for hunting small birds and wild game.

KU on Wednesday told Campus Reform that they stand by the professor’s right to make such statements…

While Guth’s Twitter account is personal, his biography includes a link that directs to the school’s website.

So, let’s sum this up. Americans, who respect and support the rights bestowed in our Constitution, want guns to be used to stop evil and protect human life. The KU professor, who resents our 2nd Amendment rights, wants guns to be used to kill children. Who is the “misguided miscreant”? And these sick people educate our children.

Creepy Perv Charged With Masturbating In Front Of Children While Riding Bicycle

Clark McElfresh Charged With Masturbating While Riding Bicycle – Weekly Vice

Clark Duncan McElfresh, a 51-year-old California man, was jailed last Thursday after he allegedly masturbated in front of two young children (and their parents) while riding a bicycle.

.

According to police, officers were dispatched to a location near Seale Park in Palo Alto after witnesses called to report that a man was exposing himself and masturbating while riding a bicycle.

When officers arrived at the scene, a couple with two young children stated that they were attempting to park their car when a man rode past them on a bicycle.

The couple went on to say that the man was exposing himself and masturbating as he rode his bicycle back and forth before them.

Officers obtained a detailed description of the man and located him a short time later.

McElfresh was booked into jail and charged with misdemeanor indecent exposure. He was reportedly arrested for a similar offense in March 2012 after he was caught walking down a street naked while fondling himself.

Woman Arrested After Refusing To Be Sexually Assaulted By Court Officer In Front Of Her Children (Video)

Video: Court Marshal Allegedly Sexually Assaults Woman, Then Has Her Arrested For Objecting – Hot Air

Why is a local story that’s three months old suddenly exploding online this week? I saw half a dozen people tweet this clip earlier this morning, all with the same expressions of horror and outrage, even though it was first reported in early March. I’d never seen it before myself. My half-assed theory on why it’s catching on belatedly is that someone rediscovered it last week during NSA-palooza and saw it as some kind of metaphor for the futility of protesting state abuse of the power to invade your privacy. The analogy’s not perfect – the marshal here was reportedly fired, although the fate of “multiple employees and managers” who were also under investigation remains, as far as I know, unclear – but the past two weeks have been a “libertarian moment” and this clip is very, very libertarian-friendly. Even Lindsey Graham would think twice about state power after watching it. For a moment. Reluctantly.

Exit quotation from the KLAS report that broke this story: “The I-Teams investigation shows how the internal affairs investigation is revealing much larger problems at family court. There are multiple marshals involved and allegations ranging from sexual assaults to choking a citizen in court.”

Obama Justice Department: Children Don’t Need Mothers, And Have No Right To Them

DOJ: Children Do Not Need, And Have No Right To, Mothers – CNS

The Obama Justice Department is arguing in the United States Supreme Court that children do not need mothers.

………

The Justice Department’s argument on the superfluity of motherhood is presented in a brief the Obama administration filed in the case of Hollingsworth v. Perry, which challenges the constitutionality of Proposition 8, the California ballot initiative that amended California’s Constitution to say that marriage involves only one man and one woman.

The Justice Department presented its conclusions about parenthood in rebutting an argument made by proponents of Proposition 8 that the traditional two-parent family, led by both a mother and a father, was the ideal place, determined even by nature itself, to raise a child.

The Obama administration argues this is not true. It argues that children need neither a father nor a mother and that having two fathers or two mothers is just as good as having one of each.

“The [California] Voter Guide arguably offered a distinct but related child-rearing justification for Proposition 8: ‘the best situation for a child is to be raised by a married mother and father,’” said the administration’s brief submitted to the court by Solicitor General Donald B. Verrilli Jr.

“As an initial matter, no sound basis exists for concluding that same-sex couples who have committed to marriage are anything other than fully capable of responsible parenting and child-rearing,” the Department of Justice told the court. “To the contrary, many leading medical, psychological, and social-welfare organizations have issued policy statements opposing restrictions on gay and lesbian parenting based on their conclusion, supported by numerous scientific studies, that children raised by gay and lesbian parents are as likely to be well adjusted as children raised by heterosexual parents.”

“The weight of the scientific literature strongly supports the view that same-sex parents are just as capable as opposite-sex parents,” says the administration.

To support this argument, one of the documents the administration cites is a “policy statement” by the American Psychological Association. This statement claims that some studies indicate same-sex parents might be “superior” to mother-and-father families, but then concedes there is little actual data on the results of raising children in two-father households.

“Members of gay and lesbian couples with children have been found to divide the work involved in childcare evenly, and to be satisfied with their relationships with their partners,” says this APA policy statement the administration cited to the court. “The results of some studies suggest that lesbian mothers’ and gay fathers’ parenting skills may be superior to those of matched heterosexual parents. There is no scientific basis for concluding that lesbian mothers or gay fathers are unfit parents on the basis of their sexual orientation.”

“Studies of other aspects of personal development (including personality, self-concept, and conduct) similarly reveal few differences between children of lesbian mothers and children of heterosexual parents,” says the APA policy statement. “However, few data regarding these concerns are available for children of gay fathers.”

The Obama administration further argues that because California law already permits domestic partnerships in which same-sex couples are allowed all the “incidents” of marriage – including the right to adopt children and be foster parents – that Proposition 8 only denies same-sex couples the use of the word “marriage” and does not change the status of child-rearing in the state.

“Moreover, as the court of appeals determined, ‘Proposition 8 had absolutely no effect on the ability of same-sex couples to become parents or the manner in which children are raised in California,’” says the administration. “As explained, California law, both before and after Proposition 8, grants registered domestic partners the same parental rights and benefits accorded to married couples. And Proposition 8 does not alter California’s adoption, fostering, or presumed-parentage laws, which ‘continue to apply equally to same-sex couples.’

“In light of California’s conferral of full rights of parenting and child-rearing on same-sex couples, Proposition 8’s denial to same-sex couples of the right to marry bears no cognizable relation, let alone a substantial one, to any interest in responsible procreation and child-rearing (however defined),” says the administration. “Indeed, because a substantial number of California children are raised in households headed by same-sex couples.”

In effect, the administration is arguing that California had already conceded the administration’s point that children do not need a mother or a father when it enacted laws treating same-sex couples the same as married couples in its adoption, foster-parenting and other laws–which Proposition 8 did not seek to overturn.

So far in the history of the human race, no child has ever been born without a biological father and mother. Now, in the Supreme Court of the United States, the Executive Branch of the federal government is arguing that, regardless of the biological facts of parenthood, states have no legitimate and defenisble interest in ensuring that children conceived by a mother and a father are in fact raised by mothers and fathers.

The brief that the Justice Department presented to the Supreme Court discussed children only as items controlled by others, not as individual human beings who have God-given rights of their own. It simply assumes that a child has no inherent right to a mother or father and that the only right truly in question is whether two people of the same-sex have a right to marry one another and that that right encompasses a right to adopt and foster-raise children.

To take this view and be consistent with the principles of the Declaration of Independence – which recognizes the ultimate authority of the “Laws of Nature and Nature’s God” and says that “all men are created equal” and “endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights” – the Obama Justice Department must advance the assumption that natural law and Nature’s God give children no right to a mother and father and no right not to be legally handed over by the government to be raised by same-sex couples.
