NH Roars and other political news and opinion

New Hampshire Primary
I assume everyone who read this blog is already up to date on the results. In brief, Hillary Clinton only got 38% of the Democrat votes, so lost big. Donald Trump, who is on record as saying that Hillary would be a great president, got 35% of the Republican vote, so won big. Kasich took second on the GOP side, while Rubio came in slightly behind Bush and Cruz. I still think that a Rubio-Kasich ticket would be big winner, but I'm not sure we can get there. Democrats pulling for Trump on the GOP side, and Republicans hoping for Red Bernie on the Democrat side might want to think about what a Trump or a Sanders presidency would mean for the Republic. I have trouble seeing a path to survival for the Republic, but I believe that a Clinton, Sanders or Trump presidency would put us over the tipping point. It may be unavoidable anyway.

Must Read: Step Right Up, Ladies. By Tom Kratman
Excerpt: Recently, and perhaps significantly, two of the senior military officers in the country, Army Chief of Staff Mark Milley and Commandant of the Marine Corps Robert Neller, testified before Congress that women should be required to register for the draft.2 Interestingly, their civilian chiefs, acting Army Secretary Patrick Murphy and Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus, called instead for a national debate. I suppose those latter two mean something like the debate that accompanied the decision to open up all combat arms branches to women. That debate? Well, it was short so you probably missed it, amounting to, “Soldier, Sailor, Airman, and Marine, the facts and the truth don’t matter in the slightest when matched against our fantasy of a glorious egalitarian future. Now shut up and do what you’re told.” Oh, a fierce debate, that one was. Interesting, though, is it not, that after imposition by fiat of gender integration now the civilians are saying “nuance” and “debate” and, impliedly, “go slow,” while the generals are shouting, “Charrrge!" and “Full speed ahead!”? Here’s what I think is going on there: Both the generals and the civilians realize exactly the same things, that: A) Mom and Dad, while not thrilled about sending their son to war, absolutely don’t want their little girl being forced to go to war, and B) rallying that sentiment is the last chance to strangle in the cradle this execrably stupid notion of gender equality in combat before it has a chance to utterly ruin the United States armed forces, which, yes, it will. Am I sure of it? Of the ruination, I am absolutely certain, which should surprise no one here. It could have been done in a non-ruinous way but that would never fit the fantasies of the left, of course. (Tom Kratman is a retired USA LtCol, an occasional contributor to this blog, and an outstand author of military science fiction, including the A Desert Called Peace series. I expect that in 20 years they will move his novel Caliphate to the history section. ~Bob)

Book Recommendation: Roman Blood: A Novel of Ancient Rome by Steven Saylor 
I might read, but would usually not recommend a mystery novel. However, Roman Blood is also a well-researched and well-written historical novel set in Rome late in the dictatorship of Sulla (before Caesar, after Gaius Marius) that includes both Sulla and the famous orator, Cicero, and a real case he took early in his career. In addition to the history, and the complex workings of a mystery, it gives the reader a real feel for everyday life in Rome at that time. I look forward to reading the next book in the series.

Worth Reading: Winners and losers from the New Hampshire primary. By Chris Cillizza
Excerpt: Losers: Maggie Hassan/Jeanne Shaheen: The sitting governor and the state's Democratic senator were high-profile endorsers and surrogates for Clinton in New Hampshire. Didn't matter. Like, at all. Which provides yet further evidence that endorsements are, almost always, meaningless in the context of a presidential primary process. Ben Carson and Carly Fiorina: So, I hate to be the one to break it to Ben and Carly, but, well, it's all over.

Interesting: Trump, Kasich, Cruz, Rubio, Bush: What NH results mean to the still-alive five. By William Whalen
Excerpt: Add this to the list of election-year proverbs to dismiss: John Sununu’s snarky missive that “Iowa picks corn and New Hampshire picks presidents”. The last presidential hopeful to make good on Sununu’s words: his old boss, George H.W. Bush. That was all the way back in 1988 – three years before Peyton Manning first took the field . . . for his high-school team.

From Sanders’s victory speech. By Jim Geraghty, Morning Jolt
Excerpt: "Listen to this, when the top three drug companies in this country made $45 billion dollars in profit last year, that is an obscenity, and let me tell you something. When we make it to the White House, the pharmaceutical industry will not continue to rip-off the American people." That $45 billion seems like a lot . . . until you realize country spends about $375 billion on medicine each year. That’s a profit rate of 12 percent. Still seem so outrageous? How many lifesaving drugs has Bernie Sanders developed? In an earlier appearance, Sanders said, “We’re going to have to make the decision to say, I’m sorry, we can’t make money out of health care.” Never mind that doctors, nurses, physical therapists, pharmacists, drug researchers, and specialists of all kinds spend years and small fortunes learning their skills and developing their treatments. Bernie Sanders has decided they’re charging too much because they’re greedy! (As a senator, Bernie Sanders makes $174,000 per year. According to, the average general practice doctor makes $143,000.)

Our ugly future: New Hampshire proves Americans hate politicians. By John Podhoretz
Excerpt: A socialist who only became a member of the Democratic Party a year ago just slaughtered the party’s queen-in-waiting. A reality-show billionaire who has never before run for office just humbled two senators and three former and present governors in a runaway Republican victory. The New Hampshire presidential primary has launched America into uncharted political territory. We’re flying blind here, people. Trust no analysis. Believe no prognosticator. Nobody knows anything. Well, we know a few things... Donald Trump and Sanders have a remarkably similar and remarkably simple message, and it’s this: You’re being screwed. They agree that international trade is screwing you, that health care companies are screwing you and that Wall Street is screwing you.

Crippling the military to be PC: Pentagon orders commanders to prioritize climate change in all military actions. By  Rowan Scarborough
Excerpt: The Pentagon is ordering the top brass to incorporate climate change into virtually everything they do, from testing weapons to training troops to war planning to joint exercises with allies. A new directive’s theme: The U.S. Armed Forces must show “resilience” and beat back the threat based on “actionable science.” It says the military will not be able to maintain effectiveness unless the directive is followed. It orders the establishment of a new layer of bureaucracy — a wide array of “climate change boards, councils and working groups” to infuse climate change into “programs, plans and policies.” (You know it now, "Climate Change" is the most dangerous thing ever to the USA, the world, humanity in general, and by heaven, we'll turn the military upside down to get ready for it because the Prez says so. I keep wondering if there is any limit at all to the stupidity, ignorance, and arrogance of Mr. Obama and his crew, but so far I can't seem to find any.  Heaven help us if we actually have to go fight anyone serious in the next few years. --Del. On it goes. They are ensuring that in the next serious combat a lot of young Americans will come home in body bags and we will be defeated. Then they and their media suck-ups will say, "Nothing to do with us." ~Bob)

Worth Reading: Rubio’s road back from New Hampshire. By Jennifer Rubin 
Excerpt: Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) got knocked on his keister in New Hampshire for the wrong reason. The media, running with a debate moment and a new storyline (Rubio falters!), put forth the notion that he is robotic, a kind of trained seal. In fact, anyone listening to an interview or a Q-and-A session with Rubio knows the depth of his knowledge and his ability to weave details into a convincing argument. (The buzzword king, of course, is Donald Trump, who knows virtually nothing about serious issues.)
Rubio does have a real issue — a lack of executive experience — but then, so does Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.). Rubio’s lack of executive experience is not fixable at this point, but the concocted media storyline — he operates by rote — surely is, since it is not remotely true. There are several things he can do about it.

The gaping hole at the heart of Hillary Clinton’s campaign. By Paul Waldman
Excerpt: But right now, the Clinton campaign has a much bigger problem than the story it wants to tell about New Hampshire. That problem is this: the campaign has no story to tell the voters about Hillary Clinton and why she should be president.
Having a good story doesn’t guarantee you victory, but nobody becomes president without one. The story has to contain three simple elements. First, it explains what the problem is. Second, it explains what the solution is. And third, it explains why this candidate, and only this candidate, is the person who can bring the country from where it is now to where it ought to be.

Some concern for the poor folks: US Supreme Court blocks Obama's carbon emissions rule
Excerpt: The Supreme Court agrees to halt enforcement of President Obama's plan to address climate change until legal challenges are resolved, a victory for the coalition of 27 mostly Republican-led states and industry opponents who called the regulations "an unprecedented power grab." 

Newsflash: Men and Women Have Different Bodies
Excerpt: The full report is worth a read, and makes it clear that mixed-sex units are going to have more challenges and be less effective than single-sex units. The primary cause is biology, not sexism. The report notes that women have biological challenges to fighting in battle that cannot be trained away. Women in combat get hurt more easily and cannot sustain fighting for as long as men, simply because their bodies are different. (The full article is about the recent talking about putting women into the draft, and just how crazy that is, but the section I really liked was the one that I've excerpted below.  And to make it easy, I downloaded the full USMC report summary on the multiple month evaluation of all male vs mixed gender units, all doing the same tasks that are absolutely normal to such units.  It's not a super long read, and has a great set of data in it that goes into the simple fact of the innate differences between male and female body types.  Which differences we know make no difference whatsoever in all kinds of things.....  but do make really significant differences in some kinds of things.  Which is why the Olympics don't have men and women competing in much of anything.... or is that supposed to all just be some kind of sexist bias? --Del)

It may come to this: The Great Social Experiment Takes the Field – In the War of 2020. By Ray Starmann
Excerpt: It is not an integration that has gone smoothly. Females cannot handle the physical demands of the combat arms and special operations. Under pressure from the Pentagon, standards have dropped drastically to accommodate women, but many issues still remain. Combat units must meet quotas that call for each unit comprising no less than 35% women. Combat units must function with constant pregnancies and females breastfeeding in the field. Lactation stations, diaper changing facilities and nurseries are commonplace in the field and even in combat zones. Males in units must routinely conduct PT (physical training) wearing pregnancy simulators. The sight of hundreds of men running to cadence while strapped down with pregnancy simulators is a normal event on US military bases worldwide. Several times a year, male soldiers are also required to wear red high heels to show their support for female rape victims. Sensitivity training and classes on why the US Constitution and Bible are racist and sexist are mandatory for promotion.

Senate report: Illegal immigrants benefited from up to $750M in ObamaCare subsidies

Senate report finds ‘pay and chase’ Obamacare tax credit failure. By M.D. Kittle 
Excerpt: The Affordable Care Act has proved less-than-affordable for many consumers. Now a new report shows the ACA – a.k.a. Obamacare  – is plagued with accountability problems with the tax credits the government hands out, potentially costing taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars. U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, released the report Monday detailing the problems in the distribution of Obamacare tax credits.

Worth Reading: The Flint Fiasco. By Richard A. Epstein
Excerpt: In the midst of the just denunciation of the many public officials who shared responsibility for the damage, its deeper structural cause has generally been overlooked: Flint residents are also the victims of government arrogance and massive misallocation of resources. Right now in Michigan, both the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) share responsibility for protecting the public water supply. As is common, the current system of shared federal, state, and local control makes it all too easy for each group to rely on the other to prevent or minimize risks. This system of joint control also makes it exceedingly difficult to assign blame after the fact once the damage occurs. In addition, both of these agencies are protected from private lawsuits by an elaborate set of absolute federal and  state  immunities that protect them in their discharge of “discretionary functions.” Individual officials may, and indeed have, lost their jobs, but public relief is limited to bottled water and modest healthcare assistance. To see how pitiful the current institutional structure is, imagine what would have happened if a private party had been involved in either the creation or the cover-up of the Flint water crisis. 

Worth Reading: Toxic Words. By Thomas Sowell
Excerpt: During this election year, we are destined to hear many words that are toxic in the way they misrepresent reality and substitute fantasies that can win votes. One of these words is "entitlement." To hear some politicians tell it, we are all entitled to all sorts of things, ranging from "affordable housing" to "a living wage." But the reality is that the human race is not entitled to anything, not even the food we need to stay alive. If we don't produce food, we are just going to starve. If we don't build housing, then we are not going to have housing, "affordable" or otherwise. Particular individuals or groups can be given many things, to which politicians say they are "entitled," only if other people are forced by the government to provide those things to people who don't need to lift a finger to earn them. All the fancy talk about "entitlement" means simply forcing some people to work to produce things for other people, who have no obligation to work.

Interesting: Maine Required Childless Adults to Work to Get Food Stamps. Here’s What Happened. By Robert Rector  and Rachel Sheffield 
Excerpt: In response to the growth in food stamp dependence, Maine’s governor, Paul LePage, recently established work requirements on recipients who are without dependents and able-bodied. In Maine, all able-bodied adults without dependents in the food stamp program are now required to take a job, participate in training, or perform community service. Job openings for lower-skill workers are abundant in Maine, and for those ABAWD recipients who cannot find immediate employment, Maine offers both training and community service slots. But despite vigorous outreach efforts by the government to encourage participation, most childless adult recipients in Maine refused to participate in training or even to perform community service for six hours per week. When ABAWD recipients refused to participate, their food stamp benefits ceased. In the first three months after Maine’s work policy went into effect, its caseload of able-bodied adults without dependents plummeted by 80 percent, falling from 13,332 recipients in Dec. 2014 to 2,678 in March 2015. (Isn't this an interesting thing, about what happened when a minor work requirement was instituted for eligibility? I understand very well that there's a definite need for this program, especially for poor families with children.  But when young singles with no kids are collecting, asking for some kind of return to society seems a most reasonable and minimal idea.  Nobody's life will go to pieces if they have to report for 6 or even 10 hours of community service in the week.  If that's asking too much.... OK, then hasta la vista, baby, and good luck out there being independent. --Del)

Making The Same Mistake Hundreds Of Times: The IRS Re-Hires Fired Employees
Excerpt: An investigation into the hiring process at the IRS found that the agency has a history of rehiring employees who had previously been fired for misconduct. Examples of misconduct highlighted by the investigation include serious offenses like fraud, falsification of documents, and unauthorized access to taxpayer information. This is not only an affront to taxpayers, it is also a slap in the face to the public servants at the agency who do work hard every day.

Excerpt: The kings of inoffensive Starbucks rock Coldplay were supposed to be the main stars of the show, but the bland Brits were easily outshined by Beyonce and her “Black Panther” dancers. The pop star and her faux militant coterie performed for the millions watching the Super Bowl her latest single, “Formation.” While a lot of viewers may have not noticed the homage to the Black Panther Party in Beyonce’s appearance, it was made abundantly clear in photos before and after the show in which the dancers made black power salutes.

Excerpt: “Some of the violations investigated surrounding the project included bank and wire fraud, and I discovered ties to organized crime and high-ranking politicians and they received promotions that appeared to facilitate the program,” Johnson testified. She said that during her investigation in 2013, she “discovered that EB-5 applicants from ChinaRussiaPakistan, Malaysia had been approved in as little as 16 days” and that case files “lacked the basic and necessary law enforcement queries.” At ICE, Johnson had amassed many awards and never had any disciplinary problems. But everything changed abruptly in 2013 when she invoked the ire of Senator Reid by holding up a visas for a foreigner investor in a Las Vegas casino represented by his son, attorney Cory Reid.

Excerpt: White liberals and black careerists vigorously reject the MLK ideal of a color-blind society. The racial spoils industry survives on several requisites. One, Americans must be readily identifiable as being non-white or white. Two, once non-white claimants pass the racial litmus test, they must think and speak in a particular progressive manner, in dutiful obeisance to those who set up and perpetuate the racial spoils system. And three, racialism must remain defined as a one-way bias. The problem with the first criterion is multifold. America today truly is a multiracial, intermarried society in which the old rubric “white” no longer equates to “of European descent.” Obama’s racist former minister Rev. Jeremiah Wright appears whiter than many Americans of Mediterranean heritage.

Excerpt: It’s a relatively new phenomenon for the government to seize property on behalf of private development projects. And yet, so very many of these projects somehow used to get done. Only one thing is certain when it comes to eminent domain: Those who have their property seized don’t get paid enough for it. Admittedly, trying to clear out all the homes from a certain area can be a seemingly insurmountable challenge. But there are free-market solutions.

Doomed: $19 Trillion and Counting. By Veronique de Rugy
Excerpt: The statutory limit on how much debt the federal government can accumulate is back in the news, but this time it's not because Washington is close to breaching it.
That's not a present concern thanks to the year-end bipartisan spending spree that included a suspension of the debt limit until March 2017. The news is that a report from the House Financial Services Committee found that the Obama administration's Treasury Department has been repeatedly misleading the American public on the matter. Treasury has routinely rejected the idea that once the government reaches the debt limit, federal spending could be prioritized to avoid a default. (Unfortunately, the acknowledged debt is the smaller part of the problem; there is also the unfunded liability. That is money the government has promised to pay but does not have in the bank for Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, Obamacare, etc. It's not considered "debt" because it's not owed by contract; the government can cancel it, creating chaos and "civil unrest." I've read estimates that range from $87T to $240T, depending on who is counting, what is counted and what period is projected. Google, "The West and the Tyranny of Public Debt" from Newsweek. Of course, as a college-educated liberal friend said, the "government can always print more money." This is why you can buy a billion dollars in Zimbabwe currency on eBay for about $8. ~Bob)

Reminder: Obama DOJ is hedging its bets by not working with the FBI on Hillary investigation. By J.E. Dyer
Excerpt: There’s been a flurry of recent reporting on the potential for an “FBI revolt” if Attorney General Loretta Lynch ignores an FBI recommendation for an indictment out of the Hillary-email investigation.  But as McCarthy clarifies, the FBI is soldiering on by itself — and if it ends up recommending charges that never get brought, there’s no guarantee of much of a DOJ paper trail to peruse afterward.  Stressing certain words to the most faithful scribes in the media, and not opening a formal process, are the Obama administration’s methods of shaping expectations about that very prospect. McCarthy doesn’t think the administration can get away with it; he thinks FBI Director James Comey is smart enough to get justice in spite of politics.  We’ll see.  If Comey can do that with Hillary Clinton, while Obama is still in the Oval Office, he’ll be a rare specimen indeed. (Looks like the Justice Department is not cooperating with, or providing legal leadership, to the dual FBI investigations into Hillary's violations of the classified documents laws and/or those laws that may have been violated by the "play for pay" donations to the Clinton Foundation.  The FBI has leaked that about 100 agents are looking into these matters.  But, if the DOJ delays, ignores, or papers over the results on these investigations, there may be a revolt by angry FBI agents. For an expert view of this situation see Andrew McCarthy on NRO. --Anon Comment with email.)

Excerpt: The 2013 exercise … saw a contingent of Russian aircraft approach Swedish airspace after crossing the Gulf of Finland, was one of several examples of dummy nuclear attacks against Nato and its allies in recent years.

Johnny Depp stars as Donald Trump in hour-long 'Funny or Die' spoof
Excerpt: Donald Trump may have won New Hampshire Republican presidential primary, but Johnny Depp wins for best impersonation of the 69-year-old aspiring politician. "Funny or Die" went all out to create a 51-minute spoof that centers around Trump's bestselling book "Art of the Deal" -- and it could go down as one of the most epic parodies the world has ever seen.

Clinton’s U.N. Candidate? The favorite to run Turtle Bay is Russia’s preferred choice.
Excerpt: Hillary Clinton has made gender a major part of her pitch for the White House, and the idea is catching on. A leading candidate to become the next Secretary-General of the United Nations is a Bulgarian woman with a Communist past and a record unfriendly to U.S. interests who is being promoted by Chelsea Clinton’s mother-in-law.
The Bulgarian is 63-year-old Irina Bokova, who since 2009 has run Unesco, the U.N. cultural and social welfare agency. By tradition the top job at the U.N., Secretary-General, rotates by region and it will be Eastern Europe’s turn when Ban Ki-moon’s term expires at the end of this year.

The Captive Press: Here’s Proof That A Pliant Press Does What Democrats Tell Them To. By JOHN MERLINE       
Excerpt: Soon after Hillary Clinton became secretary of State, The Atlantic’s then politics editor Marc Ambinder was fishing around for an early look at a speech she was going to give to the Council on Foreign Relations. Clinton’s spokesman, Philippe Reines, said fine, but added three conditions. 1) You in your own voice describe them as “muscular” 2) You note that a look at the CFR seating plan shows that all the envoys — from Holbrooke to Mitchell to Ross — will be arrayed in front of her, which in your own clever way you can say certainly not a coincidence and meant to convey something 3) You don’t say you were blackmailed! Turns out, Ambinder did just what he was told. Clinton’s speech, he wrote, was “muscular” and in his “own clever way” Ambinder relayed Clinton’s PR message about the seating arrangement. And nowhere did he mention that he was instructed to say these things. (Oh my goodness, who ever suspected anything like this could ever happen?  Say it ain't so, Joe! But the reality is there.  Of course, some will say this is just a single incident and thus means nothing, really.  Somehow, I don't think what we've all seen from the media for the past decades says this is a one-time thing.  How many admiring or accommodating articles have you ever seen in the main media about GOP figures?  How often have you seen zingers and outright hit pieces on them?  Remember all the lovely, gentle pieces on Sarah Palin? Anyhow, it's nice to see one so clearly exposed. --Del)

In the Pentagon’s new budget, the Air Force won and the Navy and Army lost. By Dan Lamothe 
This is of course not unexpected.  And just think, on this very slightly increased money, all the services will be creating a gaggle of boards and think groups, etc, to focus narrowly on the challenges that Climate Change will be bringing to the scene.  As one general put it, somehow planning how a platoon will train to advance under fire when maybe in 20 years the coastline will be 50 yards closer is hard to figure out.  But hey, they got their marching orders. --Del

Worth Reading: To Feminist Consternation, Hillary Is Being Judged as an Individual — Not as a Woman. By Jonah Goldberg
Excerpt: Hillary Clinton is not a woman, and that’s a triumph for feminism and a problem for Hillary. Let me clarify. Yes, technically she is female. But when millions of Americans think of Hillary Clinton, they don’t think of her gender; they think of, well, Hillary Clinton. Some may think of her as a heroic liberal technocrat. Others might think of her as a deeply partisan politician.

Target--gun free zone: Islamic State Supporter In Michigan Planned Massacre at Mega-Church
Excerpt: The FBI complaint noted that a church fitting the description of Abu-Rayyan’s intended target is located only half a mile from where he works. He told the FBI why he thought the church would make a good target: “It’s easy and a lot of people go there. Plus people are not allowed to carry guns in church. Plus, it would make the news. Everyone would’ve heard.” “Honestly, I regret not doing it,” Abu-Rayyan added. “If I can’t do jihad in the Middle East, I would do my jihad over here.”

French Four-Star General, Just Before His Arrest: “France is Dying”
Excerpt: As reported in last night’s news feed, yesterday’s French PEGIDA demonstration in Calais was banned by the government out of fear that it would provoke violence. But it went ahead anyway, and a retired army general was arrested for participating in it. But this wasn’t just any general — this was General Christian Piquemal, the former commander of the Foreign Legion. Immediately before his arrest, Gen. Piquemal gave an interview to “Boulevard Voltaire”, a French online journal.

EXCLUSIVE – Geert Wilders: Stopping Islamic Immigration Is a Matter of Survival
Excerpt: The Transatlantic alliance between Americans and Europeans has been the key to the survival of our common Western civilization. This alliance is in danger today, because the more Islamic Europe becomes, the less reliable it will be as an ally of America. Though the predicted future rise of Islam in the US is worrying, the situation in Europe is far worse. (COMMENT FROM SITE:  William Silverstrand--Excellent comment ... thank you. I've copied and pasted your profound comment into a document for future reference. "if it ever reach us, it must spring up amongst us." That would be Obama who has paved the way for ISIS in Libya and Iraq, armed them in Syria and destabilized the Middle East to the point where hordes of Muslims are invading and destroying Europe. Here at home, Obama has illegally and systematically not only dismantled our immigration laws and border security apparatus, but has intentionally facilitated an invasion from the 3rd world with his 'catch and release' policy, whilst shipping them all over the US to infect every state in the Union. IMHO, only Trump has the will and the fortitude to reverse this trend and place the Government back into the hands of the people. We'll start by arresting every sanctuary Governor and Mayor who have committed felonies under federal immigration laws by willfully harboring, aiding and abetting illegal aliens. I see glorious days ahead when we take our country back with a vengeance and punish those who have openly betrayed us.)

Muslim journalist: “How can you say that Islam is not blood-soaked?” By Robert Spencer,
Excerpt: “They have been practicing savagery for a very simple reason: to strike fear in their enemy,” says Abdel Bari Atwan. The Qur’an says: “And prepare against them whatever you are able of power and of steeds of war by which you may terrify the enemy of Allah and your enemy and others besides them whom you do not know whom Allah knows.” (Qur’an 8:60)

Ethnic cleansing: Iran-backed militia seize Christian neighborhoods in Baghdad
Excerpt: Iran-backed militias have seized homes, businesses and cultural sites, including churches belonging to Baghdad’s Christian communities, forcing individuals to resettle and forfeit all their belongings, according to members of the Christian members of the Iraqi Parliament. The militias have targeted properties belonging to Christians, forcing individuals to leave the area, according to Christian community leaders, including representatives from the Assyrian, Chaldean and Syriac minorities, as well as the Chaldean Patriarch of Iraq who have condemned the attacks, calling them a form of ethnic cleansing aimed to rid Baghdad of its Christians. (They'll get no help from the US or Europe. But we will declare this "un-Islamic." Which it is...if you ignore 1300 years of Islamic history. ~Bob)
