President Obama does not stand up for Jews murdered by Islamic Terrorists. President Obama does not stand up for Christians murdered by Islamic Terrorists. Is there anyone President Obama will stand up for? Ben Shapiro explains why the answer is probably ‘no.’

TRANSCRIPT:

After a Muslim terrorist shot up a kosher supermarket in the hours after the Charlie Hebdomassacre, President Obama spoke out. He said:

It is entirely legitimate for the American people to be deeply concerned when you’ve got a bunch of violent, vicious zealots who behead people or randomly shoot a bunch of folks in a deli in Paris.

Randomly. Obviously, the shooting of Jews in a kosher supermarket was not random. In fact, we have proof: the shooter called the media and stated, “I targeted them because they were Jewish.”

Why didn’t Obama acknowledge the reality of Islamic anti-Semitism? Because were he to do so, he would have to acknowledge that Israel is right and its enemies are wrong, that no territorial concessions would buy off Muslim religious fanatics. He would have to realize that whether radical Muslims attack Jews in Jerusalem or in Paris, they’re attacking Jews, not stand-ins for Israel.

He doesn’t want to acknowledge that. Instead, he and the European community want to pretend that Israel is not part of Western Civilization.

And the Islamists notice.

And they escalate.

After Muslim terrorists from ISIS beheaded some 21 Egyptian Coptic Christians, the President released a statement condemning “the despicable and cowardly murder of twenty-one Egyptian citizens in Libya by ISIL-affiliated terrorists.” Do you notice a word missing? The word is “Christians.”

Why didn’t the President acknowledge the reality of Islamic anti-Christian bigotry? Because were he to do so, he would have to acknowledge that Western Civilization is not at fault for Islamic terrorism, and that no amount of diplomacy or economic bribery will buy off Islamic terrorists.

So, instead, the President pretends that all religions are equally violent, as he said at the National Prayer Breakfast:

Lest we get on our high horse and think this is unique to some other place, remember that during the Crusades and the Inquisition, people committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ.  In our home country, slavery and Jim Crow all too often was justified in the name of Christ….There is a tendency in us, a sinful tendency that can pervert and distort our faith.

Forget that the Crusades were defensive in nature, that the Inquisition with all of its horrors was an attempt to stop mob executions, that abolitionists and civil rights leaders alike were religious Christians. Focus instead on the fact that today, not hundreds of years ago or decades, Islamists are murdering Christians en masse in Iraq, Libya, Nigeria, Sudan, and Syria. First, they came for the Jews, and Obama did not speak up, because he was not a Jew. Then, they came for the Christians, and Obama did not speak up, because he is not a Christian. Now, they come for Western Civilization.

And Obama will not speak up because he is not an advocate of Western Civilization. He is a believer that Western Civilization is exploitative; that terrorism is caused by imbalances between the West and the rest; that if only the West would minimize its arrogance on the world stage, peace would result. And so we cut the military. And so we make way for an Iranian nuclear program. And so we hamstring Israel and Egypt and insist that ISIS is not Islamic.

They are coming for the Jews. They are coming for the Christians. They are coming for Western Civilization. By the time the radical Muslims come for those who think like President Obama, there will be no one left to speak out.

Here’s something that many Americans — including some of the smartest and most educated among us — don’t know: The official unemployment rate, as reported by the U.S. Department of Labor, is extremely misleading.

Right now, we’re hearing much celebrating from the media, the White House and Wall Street about how unemployment is “down” to 5.6%. The cheerleading for this number is deafening. The media loves a comeback story, the White House wants to score political points and Wall Street would like you to stay in the market.

None of them will tell you this: If you, a family member or anyone is unemployed and has subsequently given up on finding a job — if you are so hopelessly out of work that you’ve stopped looking over the past four weeks — the Department of Labor doesn’t count you as unemployed. That’s right. While you are as unemployed as one can possibly be, and tragically may never find work again, you arenot counted in the figure we see relentlessly in the news — currently 5.6%. Right now, as many as 30 million Americans are either out of work or severely underemployed. Trust me, the vast majority of them aren’t throwing parties to toast “falling” unemployment.

There’s another reason why the official rate is misleading. Say you’re an out-of-work engineer or healthcare worker or construction worker or retail manager: If you perform a minimum of one hour of work in a week and are paid at least $20 — maybe someone pays you to mow their lawn — you’re not officially counted as unemployed in the much-reported 5.6%. Few Americans know this.

Yet another figure of importance that doesn’t get much press: those working part time but wanting full-time work. If you have a degree in chemistry or math and are working 10 hours part time because it is all you can find — in other words, you are severely underemployed — the government doesn’t count you in the 5.6%. Few Americans know this.

There’s no other way to say this. The official unemployment rate, which cruelly overlooks the suffering of the long-term and often permanently unemployed as well as the depressingly underemployed, amounts to a Big Lie.

And it’s a lie that has consequences, because the great American dream is to have a good job, and in recent years, America has failed to deliver that dream more than it has at any time in recent memory. A good job is an individual’s primary identity, their very self-worth, their dignity — it establishes the relationship they have with their friends, community and country. When we fail to deliver a good job that fits a citizen’s talents, training and experience, we are failing the great American dream.

Gallup defines a good job as 30+ hours per week for an organization that provides a regular paycheck. Right now, the U.S. is delivering at a staggeringly low rate of 44%, which is the number of full-time jobs as a percent of the adult population, 18 years and older. We need that to be 50% and a bare minimum of 10 million new, good jobs to replenish America’s middle class.

I hear all the time that “unemployment is greatly reduced, but the people aren’t feeling it.” When the media, talking heads, the White House and Wall Street start reporting the truth — the percent of Americans in good jobs; jobs that are full time and real – then we will quit wondering why Americans aren’t “feeling” something that doesn’t remotely reflect the reality in their lives. And we will also quit wondering what hollowed out the middle class.

LOS ANGELES, California — Concerns have arisen over the perceived teaching of Islam in California’s seventh grade school curriculum. Questions have been raised as to whether the education within these classrooms are merely teaching about Islam or preaching the faith, in what many now view as a scandal of indoctrination of youth.

That question was central to a recent lecture and discussion addressing the topic of Islam in public elementary schools hosted by the American Freedom Alliance (AFA) at the Luxe Hotel in Los Angeles. A panel of four speakers, three of whom are public educators, conveyed their personal experiences with this subject.

One of the textbooks in question was History Alive, which was approved and adopted by the Palo Alto-based California state Board of Education in 1998. The text is part of their adoption of the History, Social Science Content Standards for CA Public Schools.

While teaching Islam, along Christianity and Judaism, is an important part of history, the educators present at the AFA lecture pointed out that History Alive pays an enormous amount of time and attention to Islam (55 pages) in the seventh grade. When teachers were asked whether Christianity (16 pages, which focused mainly on the Crusades) and Judaism (1 page) were given the same amount of attention in the classroom, they were told yes — but in sixth grade.

This proved to be untrue — Jewish and Christian curriculums were reportedly given half as much attention as Islam was. The lecturers found this to be particularly concerning when noting America’s Judeo-Christian foundation, where there is a separation of church and state. In Islam, there is no separation of church and state.

One of the presenters Keith Hardine, who works as a L.A. Unified District Campus aide, speaks publicly to children about America’s foundations. Throughout the lecture, he demonstrated several ways Islam is incompatible with the Constitution of the United States.

Maurey Williams, who taught History Alive between 1995-2001, pointed out that certain teachers in City Heights Horace Mann Middle School in San Diego would ask students to recite the “Shahada”. The “Shahada” is the Islamic profession of faith. Students were also reportedly asked to select a Muslim name from a list of 30. The same treatment reportedly did not apply when teaching Christianity or Judaism.

ACT! for America’s Samira Tamer expressed that “most modern American textbooks avoid painting a rosy picture of Christianity” by teaching about the Crusades in graphic detail. Yet, History Alive failed to include the fact that the bloody war was waged to retrieve land that was forcefully stolen from Christians by Muslims, noting that “they leave out major portions of the truth.”

Samira added that the text is riddled with severe implications about other faiths that could steer impressionable young minds. She noted that when teaching about Christianity, the textbook presents disclaimers such as “Christians believe,” implying an absence of credibility or historical evidence. Whereas the teachings of “Islam are presented as facts.” In a segment on Judaism, the book writes, “Moses claimed to receive the 10 Commandments from God.”

When it came to Islam? “Muhammad received the Qur’an from God.”

In October of 2014, two parents pulled their son out of Manhattan Beach Middle School upon discovering that his curriculum on Islam was more about the tenets of the faith than the history of the religion. And in San Diego, a publicly-funded charter school recently changed its name from the Jackson Charter to Iftin Charter. The school teaches grades K-8 and female students dress from head to toe in traditional Islamic clothing. 

While the First Amendment secures the creation of said structures in American society, the fact is, funds supporting this Muslim school (madrasa) come from American taxpayers.

According to Haaretz, President Obama’s 2012 campaign field director has been selected to be a part of a “five-man Obama team” that will run a campaign against Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

As Caroline Glick–Israeli journalist and Shillman Fellow at the David Horowitz Freedom Center–notes, the far-left Israeli news outlet “for whatever reason… chose not to translate this article in its English edition.” Fortunately, Independent Media Review and Analysis did:

Foreign Funding Bankrolls Anti-Netanyahu Campaign – Flies in 5-Man Obama Team
Dr. Aaron Lerner Date: 26 January 2015 

Haaretz reporter Roi Arad revealed in an article in the Hebrew edition today that the foreign funded organization, “One Voice”, is bankrolling the V-2015 campaign to defeat Binyamin Netanyahu’s national camp in the March 2015 Knesset Elections. 

One indication of the generous financing is that it has now flown in a team of five American campaign experts (including Jeremy Bird, the Obama campaign’s national field director) who will run the campaign out of offices taking up the ground floor of a Tel Aviv office building. 

V-2015 is careful not to support a specific party – rather “just not Bibi”. As such, the foreign funds pouring into the campaign are not subject to Israel’s campaign finance laws. 

The revelation, PJMedia observes, stands in direct contrast with President Obama’s declaration in his State of the Union that he has no more campaigns to run:

‘No more campaigns to run’ in America, at least.

SAN CRISTOBAL/CARACAS (Reuters) – Robbers and looters are targeting trucks carrying food across Venezuela in another sign of worsening shortages that have turned basics like flour and chicken into coveted booty.

Crime has long plagued shops and roads in Venezuela, which has one of the world’s highest murder rates.

But widespread shortages due to a restriction of dollars for imports have worsened since the New Year.

This has made food delivery increasingly risky even as certain trucks have been fitted with GPS devices and are sometimes protected by private security agents.

“I won’t transport food anymore because the streets are too dangerous,” said Orlando Garcia, a 37-year-old driver from the western state of Tachira who has been ambushed twice as he crisscrossed the country.

“They put screws on the road (to burst your tires), and when you stop to fix the tire they attack you,” said Garcia, who now refuses to work past midnight and will only transport plastics.

Inspectors have labelled pupils at a Christian school bigots and forced it to close after a young boy gave the wrong answer when asked what a Muslim was. Teachers at the school say he referenced terrorism in his answer, but argued that one child’s throwaway answer was no ground for closing the whole school.

Durham Free School, which currently educates 94 pupils aged between 11 and 13, was praised by former education secretary Michael Gove when it opened in September 2013, the Daily Mail has reported.

But inspectors visiting the school last November, after the new guidelines encouraging inspectors to rate schools on how they promote ‘British values’, deemed the school to have failed on a wide range of factors. “Standards are low and progress is inadequate. Students’ achievement is weak”, inspectors wrote.

The school will now close at Easter as the current education secretary, Nicky Morgan has withdrawn funding. But teachers say that they were unfairly penalized for placing a Christian ethos at the heart of the school by inspectors who wanted to demonstrate that they were promoting the Government’s diversity agenda.

In their report, the schools inspectors concluded: “Leaders are failing to prepare students for life in modern Britain. Some students hold discriminatory views of other people who have different faiths, values or beliefs from themselves.”

But teachers say that this view was based solely on the words of one 12 year old boy who, whilst taking part in a group discussion, was asked about Muslims. His answer made reference to terrorism.

“It feels like the school has been made a scapegoat. Durham is primarily white British so knowledge of other cultures is not as prevalent. But I don’t think the children are bigoted,” said Petrina Douglas, a parent governor.

The school’s acting headmaster Julian Eisner said: “The pupil’s reply displayed a very disappointing level of ignorance but, in the context, did not provide evidence of a discriminatory attitude.”

In a statement on the school’s website, John Denning, the Chair of Governors said he believed that there were “a number of irregularities” in the government’s decision to withdraw funding, adding that the school is “taking professional advice”. He thanked parents who had “rallied round”, and urged them to tweet and email Nicky Morgan urging her to keep the school open.

Meanwhile, nearby Grindon Hall, another Christian school, has been placed in special measures despite achieving the best school leaving exam results in the area. The school’s head, Chris Gray, made an official complaint to inspection group Ofsted following their most recent inspection, in which pupils were asked whether they knew what lesbians did, and whether their friends felt trapped in the wrong body.

Remember all those promises about how the ObamaCare website, HealthCare.gov, would be a veritable Fort Knox of data integrity, a super-secure environment where your personal information would be treated like delicate, priceless treasure? Never mind all that!

It turns out the system is passing tons of our personal data along to Obama’s business partners. We can all wait with breathless anticipation to learn how much of it has been intercepted by hackers.

Now, if data integrity is the broken promise of ObamaCare that really bugs you, you must have slept through the catastrophic detonation of so many other promises. You also haven’t been paying close enough attention to how Big Government operates.

It’s all about control, and data is essential to control. The more your rulers know about you, the better they can predict or manipulate your actions. It was inevitable that data harvested from ObamaCare applications would be stored and put to later use. It was also inevitable we’d be told it was all for our own good, just part of improving the customer experience, not really so very different from what Amazon.com does…

The Associated Press reports, with a little dash of irony, on the discovery that “the government’s health insurance website is quietly passing along consumers’ personal data to outside websites, just as President Barack Obama is calling for stronger cybersecurity protections.” Of course, Obama would see no contradiction there. Data handed out to those he deems worthy is as secure as it needs to be.

It works like this: When you apply for coverage on HealthCare.gov, dozens of data companies may be able to tell that you are on the site. Some can even glean details such as your age, income, ZIP code, whether you smoke or if you are pregnant.

HealthCare.gov contains embedded connections to multiple data firms that the administration says generate analysis to improve the consumer experience. Officials say outside firms barred are from using the data to further their own business interests.

Still, ever-evolving technology allows for individual Internet users to be tracked, building profiles coveted by advertisers.

Connections to third-party tech firms were documented by technology experts who analyzed HealthCare.gov, and confirmed by The Associated Press. There is no evidence that personal information from HealthCare.gov has been misused, but the high number of outside connections is raising questions.

“As I look at vendors on a website…they could be another potential point of failure,” said corporate cybersecurity consultant Theresa Payton. “Vendor management can often be the weakest link in your privacy and security chain.”

A former White House chief information officer under President George W. Bush, she said the large number of outside connections on HealthCare.gov seems like “overkill” and makes it “kind of an outlier” among government websites.

Oh, relax, you big worrywarts! It’s impossible for your almighty rulers to “misuse” your personal data, since by definition any use they can imagine for it must be appropriate, and anyone they decide to give it to must be trustworthy. They define what is right, so they cannot be guilty of wrongdoing. QED.

Also, you can save your nasty little questions about security, because the band of super-geniuses who gave this website such a memorable launch are not interested in discussing how they can guarantee data integrity, and even if they were so inclined, any discussion of security measures could compromise them. Again, QED. It’s all QED. Quit struggling and enjoy the New Normal, where so many of the important decisions in life will be made for you by politicians and their top supporters.

Things got a little sticky when an Administration spokesman assured the Associated Press that “HealthCare.gov comports with standards set by the federal National Institute for Standards and Technology,” but NIST actually cautions against the kind of random data collection and profile-building HealthCare.gov engages in.

There’s quite a bit of it going on, too. The data-mining experts who worked with the Associated Press seemed a bit stunned at how much information was being disseminated. They found about fifty third-party connections invisibly built into HealthCare.gov. AP’s in-house experts found “dozens of websites were accessed behind the scenes” during a mere 10-minute session at HealthCare.gov, including “Google’s data-analytics service, Twitter, Facebook, and a host of online advertising providers.” Some of those connections appeared to be paying very close attention to what HealthCare.gov users were doing.

Certainly such harvested information can be employed to improve a user’s online experience, but the level of “improvement” implied by the list of inquiries envisioned by the AP is downright creepy: “Have you been researching a chronic illness like coronary artery blockage? Do you shop online for smoking-cessation aids? Are you investigating genetic markers for a certain type of breast cancer? Are you seeking help for financial problems, or for an addiction?”

Even if the harvested data is never used for anything except personalized health-care advertising, it could prove unnerving for HealthCare.gov users, especially as their new Big Doctor in Washington becomes more concerned with “improving” their lifestyles to reduce health care costs. And it’s all being done without our knowledge, or permission, because Big Doc thinks we gave our individual dignity away forever on the night of the 2008 presidential election.

The Israeli Defense Force, on high alert since an Israeli Air Force strike on Monday killed a senior Hezbollah commander and an Iranian Revolutionary Guard general, Mohammed Allahdadi, in the Golan Heights on Monday, has closed a road between the towns of Avivim and Dovev, near the Lebanon border, as well as moving tanks and armored personnel carriers to the area, according to Israel National News.

Israel has also transferred Iron Dome missile defense batteries to the Syrian border; Iran has stated that they will seek revenge for the air strike. Revolutionary Guards’ chief General Mohammad Ali Jafari told the Fars news agency, “These martyrdoms proved the need to stick with jihad. The Zionists must await ruinous thunderbolts.”

Israeli jets and helicopters are patrolling the Lebanese border, according to the Lebanese media.

Reuters reported that a senior IDF official claimed that the air strike was only intended to hit low-level Hezbollah terrorists about to attack Israeli soldiers stationed at the border. The source told Reuters, “We did not expect the outcome in terms of the stature of those killed – certainly not the Iranian general. We thought we were hitting an enemy field unit that was on its way to carry out an attack on us at the frontier fence. We got the alert, we spotted the vehicle, identified it was an enemy vehicle and took the shot. We saw this as a limited tactical operation.”

(Reuters) – Hooded gunmen stormed the Paris offices of a weekly satirical magazine known for lampooning radical Islam, killing at least 12 people, including two police officers in the worst militant attack on French soil in recent decades.

One of the men was captured on video shouting “Allah!” as four shots rang out. Two assailants were then seen calmly leaving the scene.

A police union official said the assailants remained at liberty and there were fears of further attacks.

Charlie Hebdo (Charlie Weekly) is well known for courting controversy with satirical attacks on political and religious leaders and has published numerous cartoons ridiculing the Prophet Mohammad. The last tweet on its account mocked Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the leader of the militant Islamic State, which has taken control of large swathes of Iraq and Syria.

President Francois Hollande rushed to the scene.

“An act of indescribable barbarity has just been committed today in Paris,” he said. “Measures have been taken to find those responsible, they will be hunted for as long as it takes to catch them and bring them to justice.”

A short amateur video broadcast by French television stations shows two hooded men outside the building. One of them sees a wounded policeman lying on the ground and strides over to him to shoot him dead at point-blank range. The two then walk over to a black saloon car and drive off.

In another clip on Television station iTELE, they are heard shouting: “We have killed Charlie Hebdo. We have avenged the Prophet Mohammad.”

A police official said the gunmen fled towards the eastern Paris suburbs after holding up a car.

“There is a possibility of other attacks and other sites are being secured,” Police union official Rocco Contento said.

French media outlet Metronews reports that there’s been a car explosion in front of a synagogue in Sarcelles, a city near Paris where two were two gunmen attacked the office of satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo just hours earlier.

It is not clear whether the two events are connected. The Paris version of Metro reports that this event was an incident unrelated with the attack at the magazine.

The car was parked in front of a synagogue, and reportedly exploded at about 2.30 p.m. local time (1.30 p.m. GMT).
