Barack Obama’s terrible presser. PLS .No more until you have something to tell us.If i were the POTUS I’d be calling Lt Col “Ollie” North into the White House and getting his advice. Say what you like about Mr North he knows what he’s talking about.A good man that got a bum rap.
Father Z has some terrific blog entries. Will post em here.
Like to talk about my Catholic faith(rediscovering it)for an entry soon.
One of these days am going to have to take a day or two off from the computer and finish up the Blessed Virgin Mary statue. I haven’t felt well enough to get it done.(So close too. )Will post photo when i finally get to it!
I imagine you go through this too.Feel very discouraged by what’s going on in our country.
Also very discouraged by some personal issues but we keep going. That’s what it’s about,right?
For tonight,am so totally burnt out,tired and want to get enough sleep to enjoy another beautiful day here that we’re going to wrap it up here and do the usual roll out.We’ve really had some terrific weather over the summer. Cooler than usual. Love it!
After escaping a terrorist-besieged Iraqi town with his family, 2-year-old Hassan was wounded when a suicide bomb went off near a mosque.The blast in the Kurdistan-controlled Kirkuk province, set off by terrorists from the group Islamic State, killed the boy’s entire immediate family. Today, three weeks later, the toddler remains in the hospital, bandages covering much of his face.Dr. Ali al-Bayati, head of an Iraq-based humanitarian group called the Turkmen Saving Foundation, said of Hassan: He belongs to a refugee family who left Amerli seeking a safe place after the savage attack of the terrorists to their city. He lost his family, as they were killed in the explosion with many of his relatives as well.The Aug. 7 incident, which al-Bayati recounted to The Daily Signal by email, is one example of the plight of Shitte Turkmen in Amerli, a city in northern Iraq where they have been under siege for months by the Islamist terrorists.The Obama administration reportedly is considering a humanitarian relief operation for the Shiite Turkmen in Amerli, similar to the one conducted to help the Yezidi religious minority. That crisis helped push the U.S. back into military action in Iraq.But today, in a press conference at the White House, Obama downplayed the prospect of new military action against the Islamic State, also known as ISIS or ISIL.

Refugee Samo Ilyas Ali has nine children to feed but he can’t focus on the future because the sounds of women and children crying out for help while being buried alive by Islamic State militants in northern Iraq often consume his mind.Tens of thousand of Yazidis fled their ancient homeland of Sinjar and other villages to escape a dramatic push by the Sunni militants who regard the ethnic minority as devil worshippers who must embrace their radical version of Islam or die.The refugees sit idle in camps in the semi-autonomous Kurdish region in northern Iraq.
