SORT BY Relevancy
in The Bible
Barack Obama is a wicked ruler. He has abused the authority of his office domestically and has used his authority to commit war crimes internationally. He is a usurper and should not only be impeached but should also be arrested and put on trial for his crimes. The Bible calls for justice for the poor and oppressed yet the Christian leaders in the America have been very tepid in specifically calling out the President. This week Gary Fox makes the case regarding how Barack Obama does exemplify the qualifications of a wicked ruler and why he should be impeached.

At this writing, I've not gone into great detail on Barack Obama's criminal justice system "reforms", as they apply to the "rights" of ex-felons, as they attempt to re-fold into civic life.
As I understand, there is much ado, regarding disclosures on job applications, which arguably, has precluded former inmates' ability to obtain an honest job, and be able to create distance between their past violations and present life-circumstances.
In this, one can argue that this very policy, as it severely limits one's ability to function in his or her "new" society, puts such persons in a situation where a return to crime is inevitable, so of course, questions arise as to the very purpose of incarceration, and the perception that these long-standing policies, including the loss of the privilege to vote, were at their inception, targeted at black Americans.
How can these policies be justified, if one has "paid their debt to society"?
Indeed, there are many people, ex-felons, given a chance to more forward, who have indeed proven themselves worthy of respect, honor and being seen as living examples of Allah's / God's redemption.
On the other hand, what about their victims; When and how are they "paid"?
I will research this issue in more depth, so we will have a most meaningful:

New York Times bestselling and award-winning writer Marjorie Liu is best known for her fiction and comic books. She teaches comic book writing at MIT, and she leads a class on Popular Fiction at the Voices of Our Nation (VONA) workshop.
Ms. Liu is a highly celebrated comic book writer. Her extensive work with Marvel includes the bestselling Dark Wolverine series, NYX: No Way Home, X-23, and Black Widow: The Name of the Rose.

Her newest work is Monstress is an original, creator-owned comic book series with Japanese artist (and X-23 collaborator) Sana Takeda. The series is set in an alternate, matriarchal 1920’s Asia and follows a girl’s struggle to survive the trauma of war. With a cast of girls and monsters and set against a richly imagined aesthetic of art deco-inflected steampunk, the first issue was an instant hit.

Leon Panetta argued that for all of Barack Obama’s strengths, he is missing an essential ingredient of leadership. He lacks “fire,” wrote Obama’s former CIA director and Pentagon chief. “The president relies on the logic of a law professor rather than the passion of a leader.”Obama has proved Panetta right again and again during his presidency, but never more dangerously so than with his shoulder-shrug approach to ISIS. Obama called it a “J.V. team” before it started beheading Americans. He said it was “contained” before it attacked Paris. Now he’s calling it “a bunch of killers with good social media.”Ron Fournier
President Obama is tired of all the critics who say his strategy to destroy Islamic State isn't working."The only thing that they're doing is talking as if they're tough," he complained last week. "If folks want to pop off and have opinions about what they think they would do, [they should] present a specific plan."What the rest of us need, Obama counseled, is more patience. "It's going to take time".Obama was right on one count: ?LATimes
Just for the record, Barack Obama has clinched his Trans-Pacific Partnership trade agreement; Desperation or stupidity? Jeb Bush is about to send Dubya out to campaign for him; Baltimore still drowning in its own self-shed blood; Barack Obama is preparing to terminate the Second Amendment by Executive Decree; Russia is pouring troops and equipment into Syria; "In Defense of Looting" at Yale University; Donald Trump childishly lashes out at Marco Rubio; The Muslim invasion of Europe is reviving Danish nationalism; and is Hillary Clinton giving up on Iowa and New Hampshire?
The host Lee looks at the aftermath of Paris and most importantly what defense precautions to take to protect our citizens from a similar attack. Does Obama have an incorrect understanding of ISIS and what to target? Is slowing down ISIS in Northen Iraq and Syria something to boast about OR do we need to redirect our efforts in improving intelligence on those already here in may be planning an attack in conjunction with ISIS?

The Left tries frantically to spin the Paris attacks; How is Barack Obama going to "eliminate" ISIS without fighting them?; Democrat Debate II: Preaching Islamophila & pacifism in the shadow of "France's 9/11"; Paris attacks - & worse - WILL happen here; and is the Obama Doctrine finally jumping the shark?
This episode of Global Peeks sits down with GeoPolitical Analyst Eric Draitser to discuss the situation in Paris and the wider implications.
With the violent attacks in Paris, France, the spotlight continues on extremism and what is the cause and who are the players. We want to raise questions about western foreign policy and global meddling in the so-called Middle East, Africa and other parts of the world. We want to raise some questions and answer some questions.
