Afghan Women Fear Rights
Will Erode as U.S. Leaves

Wall Street Journal, by Maria Abi-Habib

Herat, Afghanistan—Rokhshana, a 14-year-girl, has been behind bars here since March. She is serving a yearlong adultery sentence after what she describes as rape by her adult cousin, who remains a free man. (Snip)The U.S. says women´s rights will remain an important issue after the withdrawal, even though American officials acknowledge the limits of their waning influence. "Afghanistan is run by Afghans; we are significant partners," says Melanne Verveer, the U.S. Ambassador at large for global women´s issues. "We will continue to ensure that women´s rights are pivotal because of our partnership

I hope this pleases all the women who handed the election to The Won.

Liberals care nothing about women. Remember when Oprah refused to go to Afghanistan with Laura Bush and others showing support for Afghan women? I was done with Oprah at that point.

The Libs and the Libbers will promptly blame Bush and the MSM will back it up. This is getting too predictable.

Do they want the US to be their daily police guard, do they? It´s impractical and not possible. While I feel for these women, perhaps what´s needed is action by the government in Kabul that is supposed to be looking after its citizens and protecting them from criminals.

The instant we leave Afghanistan, the taliban will start to take over and dogs will be treated better than women. Obama will not get reengaged and the American supported Afghan government won´t last a year. Thousands of American and Afghan lives will have been wasted for what?
Melanne Verveer is typical of the airheads in the Obama administration who believe that wishing for something makes it so. If that was true Mitt Romney would be president and I would be handsome.

Dear Afghan Women: every time we read about a military operation we read about 3-4 women and a bunch of kids living under the roof of a terrorist.

Stop providing them aid and comfort and stop bearing their children (hint: they are groomed to become more terrorists) and we might start listening to you.

Our being there was never going to make life better for anyone except the Taliban and other criminals. It´s not a secret. We´ve been there to humiliate and kill ourselves. Certainly not to change the culture or fight a war. We´re guests there. We´ve given 9 or 10 billion dollars a month every month for over a decade to a country controlled by organized crime and the Taliban. Some goes to cronies here, but most of it goes to crime and the Taliban. For that privilege we get our best murdered and our country´s economy destroyed. There are terrible things happening in Islamic countries all the time. We´re only there to run green programs and diversity training.

Karzai is negotiating with the Taliban to save is own now very rich hide. What do you think will happen?

Obama is purging the military so we won´t even have competent senior officers running the military with which to stop Al Qaeda re-surgence in Afghanistan, let alone Pakistan.

This administration can´t keep secrects and you can only do so much with video games (drone strikes).

Those poor women are doomed.

Send a letter to Jay Leno´s wife asking why she is a democrat. Perhaps the constant 8 years of her husband mocking, President Bush and then 4 years of supporting Obama were a significant part of why you are in this position. All the liberal parties in NY and LA won´t make a speck of difference to your grim future.

The Hague-—President Barack Obama, seeking to shift the trajectory of the crisis in Ukraine, will press U.S. allies Monday to suspend Russia from the Group of Eight leading nations and to adopt more sweeping sanctions against the Russian economy, administration officials said. Mr. Obama will argue for those steps in an emergency meeting Monday evening with leaders of the world´s top seven economies, held on the sidelines of a nuclear security summit in The Hague, officials said. "We believe that there is no reason for the G-7 countries to engage with Russia going forward based on its behavior," Ben Rhodes,

Advertising executives didn’t need a scientific study to surmise what would draw young adults to ads that encourage people to buy health insurance through the Affordable Care Act.They went with skin – lots of it. “He may not be naked. He could be wearing a Speedo,” Wendy Wolf said with a laugh, referring to an ad showing a young man who is otherwise unclothed but covered by a strategically placed laptop computer. “Dude, it’s time to get covered,” proclaims the ad for www.enroll207.com that ran this week in the Portland Phoenix alternative newspaper.

One-Fifth of New Enrollees
Under Health Care Law
Fail to Pay First Premium
New York Times, by Robert Pear    Original Article
Posted By: pineledger- 2/14/2014 5:18:09 AM     Post Reply
Washington--One in five people who signed up for health insurance under the new health care law failed to pay their premiums on time and therefore did not receive coverage in January, insurance companies and industry experts say. Paying the first month’s premium is the final step in completing an enrollment. Under federal rules, people must pay the initial premium to have coverage take effect. In view of the chaotic debut of the federal marketplace and many state exchanges, the White House urged insurers to give people more time, and many agreed to do so. But, insurers said, some people missed

‘Aid in Dying’ Movement
Takes Hold in Some States

DENVER — Helping the terminally ill end their lives, condemned for decades as immoral, is gaining traction. Banned everywhere but Oregon until 2008, it is now legal in five states. Its advocates, who have learned to shun the term “assisted suicide,” believe that as baby boomers watch frail parents suffer, support for what they call the “aid in dying” movement will grow further. In January, the New Mexico Supreme Court authorized doctors to provide lethal prescriptions and declared a constitutional right for “a competent, terminally ill patient to choose aid in dying.” Last May, the Vermont Legislature passed a law

Washinton--A Congressional Budget Office analysis released Tuesday predicted that the Affordable Care Act would shrink the work force by the equivalent of more than two million full-time positions and recharged the political debate over the health care law, providing Republican opponents fresh lines of attack and putting Democrats on the defensive. The nonpartisan budget office’s analysis, part of a regular update to its budget projections, was far more complicated than the Republican attack lines it generated. Congressional Republican leaders called the findings “devastating,” “terrible” and proof that the health care law was a job killer. (Snip)Senator Joe Manchin III, Democrat

Secretary of State John Kerry must be really desperate to win the Nobel Peace Prize. So much so, he seems willing to continually force the state of Israel into untenable positions that put its security at risk. On this very topic last month, Israeli Minister of Defense Moshe Yaalon said Kerry "came here very determined and operates based upon an unfathomable obsession and Messianic feeling . . . "Throughout the recent months, there is no negotiation between us and the Palestinians, but rather between us and the Americans. The only thing that can ´save´ us is that John Kerry will

War On Banks: Attorney General Eric Holder has opened up a new front against car lenders and has forged an alliance with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau to frame them for racism, too. We don´t use the term "frame" capriciously, certainly not like Holder uses the charge of racism. His department and the president´s new consumer credit watchdog agency, CFPB, have announced a new settlement with Ally Bank for nearly $100 million. It´s the largest fair lending deal against the auto industry and the third-largest ever to resolve charges of lending discrimination. Throw in four new mortgage-lender settlements over equally

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
