    This is really a UN issue but the US used to take the lead and we were respected when we did. The entire world doesn’t have the clout to put the rebels at bay long enough and far enough away to manage this crash site in a humanitarian way? That’s pathetic. It is far from war to negotiate a reasonable solution to this problem. Otherwise, the world has to really get involved because this is much like an act of world war. Regarding Bob Beckel, he yells when he has no point to make and is getting overrun by logic and reason.

    Amen to #9.

    I think the point we are missing is that BO is making sure the US isn’t appropriately engaged on the world stage. The real people care about this stuff and want to be involved at least in a humanitarian way. Instead we are completely feckless. It has been a process to get us here. First, make sure the economy doesn’t recover. Then, make sure only the low-involvement citizens have a voice. Then, make sure that voice is exploited instead of honored. Then, honor that bad players on the world stage and undermine the good ones. Next, just disengage and let the anger, frustration and chaos take over. Plan succeeded.

    Whew, a lot of the comments on this are pretty crass. When I read the story, and watched the video, all I thought was “what a precious little girl, I hope this was a real miracle and she will be ok”. She doesn’t look comatose to me in the video, she is more responsive than that. I have personally seen this. Imperceptible breathing and heartbeat, yet the person is not dead. We depend so much on machines and scans to determine medical condition that we can’t perceive a situation where a person would be declared dead and yet actually be alive. But it does happen. I also believe in actual miracles where the dead return to life and health. We can’t know which is the case here….or the remote possibility that it is a hoax…but being crass about the death of a little child is very unbecoming.

    The problem, as I see it, is that he is a hard-news guy who editorialized. He could have made the same comments as a quote if he had a good source and it would have been entirely accurate. But suspended and maybe fired? That’s nuts!

    Was it signed by Bill Ayers?

    He just killed an endangered species…symbolically…abominable. So endangered, in fact, that it is past the point of no return. What a terrible human being…if you can call him human. Need I say more…oh, the outrage.

    Beautiful child. Beautiful woman. I am so glad she lived to tell her story.

    The worst of it is, that Rush is right. Women are victims is the message sent by the haters. Victims of the government who sided with the deniers. Victims of the business that denied them the service. Victims of horrid men who assault and impregnate them. Victims of their own sexual drives that force them into voluntary sex acts. Victims of the God who made their bodies fertile. The only one who isn’t a victim is the baby that they are forced by their own victimhood to kill.

    This video will exist forever. When she is older, I hope this little girl will realize what a class act she is. More likely, she will realize how abusive this was and be shamed and embarrassed by it.

    When BO talks about immigration reform, he uses the same tactics as he does with other issues. He talks down in patronizing tones and uses arguments that could only appeal to low information voters. The immigration issue can’t be dealt with that way. Anyone who cares at all knows a lot about the issue and can see through the deceptions easily. For those on his side, the facts don’t matter. On the other side, though, they do matter. We can all see that he created this child invasion nightmare and now is using it as his reason why we have to act now. That is the most inhumane act I have ever seen in this country. I thought Waco, Ruby Ridge and Elian Gonzalez were appalling situations. This one makes those look like small ball. This issue can clearly wait until after the election since it has waited this long. The game with the kids has got to stop and we can’t reward BO for his appalling exploitation of children for political gain. We need to take care of the kids while finding a way to stop the inflow of more of them. That is plenty to deal with in the short term.

    Whenever I read a story about this woman, I see “she became a Christian after being abandoned by her Muslim father”. Should it not be the father who is sentenced to death?

    Undisclosed sources or not, Ed Klein does write a credible story. In “The Amateur”, he made statements about BO’s relationships with the likes of Oprah and Caroline Kennedy that made absolute sense in light of the distance they have kept from BO after being in his camp early on. They match the arrogance of BO. The health story with Hillary here makes way more sense than the official reports as does the whole Benghazi thing. Bill would have never been so dumb as to tell the “video” story…though BO does get away with the most outrageous things. I think Klein is a pretty good investigator and does get the scoop. The fact that he can’t tell his sources doesn’t mean the info isn’t good.

    Genius! And his audience heard it. That is the closest they will get to the news, so we have to be thankful they are getting at least part of it right.

    It seems to me that we have two clear problems that have to be dealt with differently. One is the problem of intentional flooding of our borders to create a humanitarian crisis and overwhelm our system. It is obvious that Mexico has porous borders, as do the countries who are sending the kids here. We have to make our State Department be accountable for fixing that problem. The other is more personal. Each of us needs to have a compassionate heart toward these children who are the real victims. If we can keep the two problems separate in our minds and hearts, we will be better off.

    First sensible suggestion I’ve seen. Of course, dump responsibility right back where it belongs and see how quickly the problem gets fixed. Guatamala will have a Berlin Wall built along their border in a hot minute. We do, though, have to offer help in housing the kids while the embassy arranges transport back to the family in the country of origin, so we can house them in nice places and then send the embassy the bill. We can just deduct it from their US money allotment that we have been propping their failed government up with.

    Who helped him? How did he know who to target? I’m guessing this was a big campaign on multiple fronts with party operatives behind it.

    I wonder if Nicole is ashamed of any of the movies she’s made or if she is just able to compartmentalize faith from life. I hope for her that she is ashamed.

  • [5] June 17, 2014 at 12:10pm

    Do you suppose Nicole was thinking of Tebow when she decided where to stand? Context makes a difference. In both cases, the attention is pointed to God by the person’s actions.

  • [10] June 11, 2014 at 2:41pm

    That would all be well and good if this event didn’t happen. Fact, though, is that a PP worker got caught behaving unprofessionally and inappropriately…again. Killing the messenger doesn’t change that fact.
