    ISIL beheads another journalist 😦

    • September 2, 2014 at 1:44 pm

      Unfortunately, I’m not surprised. The President continued the necessary fight against ISIS (or ISIL) after the killing of Mr. Foley, and this is ISIS’s revenge. I’m sure the President isn’t surprised either. His heart must be heavy today.

      ALL the hostages of ISIS are in grave danger right now. If I’m not mistaken, there are many americans and brits still at the mercy of ISIS. I have no doubt that intel agencies are working around the clock to save them. But it’s very very hard.

    Unfortunately, the son of the Mother who went on Video pleading for his life to be spared……unfortunately, it is now being reported that there’s a video of him murdered.

    There was a question asked at the WH presser directed to JoshE. He said he had not heard about it. He sent his condolences to the family. As the question was asked, there was an obvious loud grunt/noise for one or two people from the WHPC in the room.

        I was reading some of the tweets and I realized that my jaw was darn near on the floor. I’m trying to understand what the hell is the problem. The man looks fabulous. I’ve seen the suit many times and I think it’s a refreshing change for the summer from the dark suits. LHM!!!
        Yep, I’m glad I missed that one. Geesh!!!

        • September 2, 2014 at 1:57 pm

          The RWNJs said it sent a message of weakness when he was briefing about foreign policy. They are so waaaaay over the deep end, grasping at threads, literally! LOLz.

    “”The guys walked up, started ringing on the doorbell, beating on the door, yelling, ‘FBI, FBI,'” Brown’s aunt, Myesha Brown, told the station.

    Brown instead called the police. After the kidnappers left, a relative got a call from them, demanding a $150,000 ransom.

    According to Brown, when authorities arrived, they speculated that Jeronta Brown was pulling a prank on his family and did not take the situation seriously.” more at tweet link

    “Authorities” speculated prank based on what???? This is one of numerous stories I’ve read lately where African Americans have sought the help of those charged to “protect & serve,” only to be fluffed off…

    I am of the mind that the Evil ISIS/ISIL murdered this freelance reporter at the same time they beheaded Foley. To delay and use another news cycle to terrorize is their wicked evil methodology.

      CNN is saying that the Voice on the beheading video……sounds like the same terrorist that was on the video that beheaded Foley. I am just sick to my stomach. My fingers can’t stop shaking.

        Let’s not forget that Syria is where Bush sent an unknown number of Arabs to be tortured in his ” Extraordinary Rendition ” program.

        More were sent there than any other country.

        Opinions by Citizens are Never the answer…..just in line with what most would be feeling upon hearing this latest terrorist beheading.

    • September 2, 2014 at 3:23 pm

      Thank you. The MSM will no doubt be sensationalizing the video and stills. Let’s all please refuse to circulate the media on this.

      • September 2, 2014 at 3:43 pm

        Indeed meta. And also, the media is using these executions as a political tool for their GOP friends to argue for a full-blown war. Let’s not take their bait. People who seem outraged when 10 or fewer journalists are executed but have no problem when thousands of young soldiers are killed in a useless war – are political hypocrites.

      Good Afternoon TODVille.

      How sorry I am for Sotloff and his parents/relatives! But his execution was a foregone conclusion the moment of his abduction. ISIS and similar groups with radical views hold no regard for life whatsoever. In fact, they believe on “men having 16 virgins awaiting for them in the afterlife” as promised by their god and prophets.

      I wish the West and moderate countries in the Middle East will join forces to eradicate this ulcer. It can spread very fast in the Internet and Twitter Age.

    “I have been dealing with European security for more than thirty years, as an activist during the Cold War, as a journalist, and at think-tanks. [1]

    I argue that:

    Russia is a revisionist power;
    It has the means to pursue its objectives;
    It is winning; and
    Greater dangers lie ahead.

    I recommend that the United Kingdom and its allies:

    Give up any hope of a return to business as usual;
    Boost the defence of the Baltic states and Poland;
    Expose Russian corruption in the West;
    Impose sweeping visa sanctions on the Russian elite;
    Help Ukraine; and
    Reboot the Atlantic Alliance.

    I am the author of several books relevant to today’s session.The first of these, ‘The New Cold War’, was written in 2007, at a time when most Westerners were still reluctant to face up to the threat the Putin regime poses both to its own people, and to Russia’s neighbours. Many accused me of scaremongering. Few do that now.”

      “Prime Ministers of Ukraine and Slovakia opened gas reverse from Slovakia to Ukraine
      02.09.2014 | 14:50

      The Prime Minister of Ukraine Arseniy Yatsenyuk, the Prime Minister of Slovakia Robert Fico and Director for Internal Energy Market of the European Commission Klaus-Dieter Borchardt put on commercial stream Vojany-Uzhgorod pipeline in Veľké Kapušany (Slovakia) on Tuesday, September 2.

      Arseniy Yatsenyuk on behalf of the Government of Ukraine expressed gratitude to the Government of Slovakia at the solemn ceremony of the opening of the pipeline “for assistance and real cooperation to ensure energy security. We face huge challenges and the energy security is one of the key challenges”.

      “We replaced 40% of gas, which we had previously bought in Russian Gazprom company to gas, which we purchase and transport from Europe, due to the opening of the reverse from Slovakia and opportunities for Ukraine to buy gas in Europe”, the Prime Minister stressed.”


    • September 2, 2014 at 4:11 pm

      ““We consider Russia’s refusal of consultations on the Budapest Memorandum as yet another example of Russia’s denial of its obligations and yet another confirmation of a course of action deliberately chosen by its leadership to destroy the current system of international law. Ukraine will continue its efforts to obtain additional security guarantees and to consolidate the international community to counter Russian aggression,” he concluded.”

    39% of Americans….per PEW said POTUS is doing too much. 31% said, well, not too much and the remainder, said, Just Right.

    But, but, but…..54% said POTUS is Not tough enough? Excuse Me!

    It makes no sense. It is contradictory. And it is engineered by the pollster to get the result the pollster was seeking…..is the ONLY conclusion logically feasible.

    The Media and their Pollsters think We The People are STUPID!

    Just watched my POTUS board Air Force One bound to Estonia. May God protect him and give him a bit of His wisdom to accomplish the numerous challenges before us.

    On another topic: I don’t want to know any details of failed attempts to get these wacko birds in Somali or Syria or Iraq, and certainly from the ISIS vile world. I don’t even need to know whey there is a hit except in the case of big game like Osama bin Laden. There is no reason (in my humble opinion) for the average TV viewer or radio listener to know the step, the plan, the strategy or the goal when the US is going after these criminals. That being said, I cannot wait when the cell that executed the American and other journalists will be taken down and sent to the many virgins awaiting them.
