Air1 interviews Naghmeh Abedini about her husband Saeed Abedini’s torture and imprisonment in Iran for being a Christian. Naghmeh reveals her true anger “in my flesh” rising up toward her husband’s captors and how God enables her to “let go and give it to God “and “pray for my enemies.” ~PBN
It’s about time. Many months later, the State Dept. finally comes clean. Anyone who stills believes this was a “out of control protest” needs to refresh their talking points. As we get closer to the midterm elections it will be interesting to see what truths the liberals reveal in an attempt to garner more moderate support. Only time will tell. –PBN
WASHINGTON (AP) — The Obama administration for the first time on Friday identified two militant groups in Libya, including one led by a former Guantanamo Bay detainee, as being allegedly involved in the attack in Benghazi that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans.
The department designated the two branches of the Ansar al-Sharia in Libya, those in the cities of Darnah and Benghazi, and a third branch in Tunisia as foreign terrorist organizations.
It also named Sufian bin Qumu, the leader of the Darnah branch, and Ahmed Abu Khattala, a senior leader of the Benghazi branch, as specially designated global terrorists.
The Sept. 11, 2012 attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi is still a political issue in Washington. Republicans in Congress criticized the Obama administration’s handling of the attack and the level of security at the diplomatic outpost.
U.S. officials have said that Khattala and an unspecified number of others have been named in a sealed complaint filed in U.S. District Court in Washington, but it’s unclear what they have been charged with. No one has been arrested in the attack in which a group of militants set fire to the diplomatic mission and killed the four.
Here are seven reasons why we feel Loretta Fuddy’s death should be investigated further:
- Black box recorder not in plane.
- Funeral may not be body of Fuddy or if it was cremation destroyed all evidence.
- Pilot’s name not listed on official employees of charter website.
- 9 or 11 passengers? Eyewitness accounts eleven not nine.
- Inconsistent reports by various official responders on scene that Loretta Fuddy was trapped in fuselage and her body went down with plane.
- Colleague’s testimony given to priest that he held Fuddy’s hand as she was dying.
- Issues regarding attempts to resuscitate Fuddy by anyone on scene or involved with forced emergency water landing of plane.
WASHINGTON — In March 2007, retired FBI agent Robert Levinson flew to Kish Island, an Iranian resort awash with tourists, smugglers and organized crime figures. Days later, after an arranged meeting with an admitted killer, he checked out of his hotel, slipped into a taxi and vanished. For years, the U.S. has publicly described him as a private citizen who traveled to the tiny Persian Gulf island on private business.
But that was just a cover story. An Associated Press investigation reveals that Levinson was working for the CIA. In an extraordinary breach of the most basic CIA rules, a team of analysts — with no authority to run spy operations — paid Levinson to gather intelligence from some of the world’s darkest corners. He vanished while investigating the Iranian government for the U.S.
The CIA was slow to respond to Levinson’s disappearance and spent the first several months denying any involvement. When Congress eventually discovered what happened, one of the biggest scandals in recent CIA history erupted.
More corruption from the Obama administration and it’s departments. It’s not even a surprise anymore when one of these branches of our government does something worthy of whistle-blowing. Come 2014, the American people will hopefully feel the same way we at PBN do, and vote these criminals out. –PBN
The Environmental Protection Agency was warned as early as July 2010 that a senior executive who claimed to be a CIA agent was collecting pay and bonuses not allowed by law but took no action for years, according to a new report from the agency’s inspector general.
Auditors warned EPA administrators that continuing “retention bonuses” for John C. Beale, which were not authorized, had pushed his salary above the legal maximum, according to the report, obtained Tuesday by The Washington Post.
In July 2010, the EPA’s human resources office contacted Beale’s Office of Air and Radiation with a document it had prepared titled “John Beale Pay Issues,” according to the report. The head of Beale’s department was Gina McCarthy, who is now the head of the EPA. The report does not make clear whether the document was given to her.
Republican Connecticut State Senator, Tony Boucher, Calls for Immediate Scrutiny of Shared Equipment on Train Lines-
Hartford, CT – State Senator Toni Boucher (R-Wilton) ranking member of the Transportation Committee released the following statement today re: deadly train derailment on Metro North Line in New York.
“I extend my heartfelt condolences to the many families who have lost loved ones in this horrible train incident. I also send my thoughts and prayers to the countless others who are injured and in pain. This deadly incident requires immediate scrutiny and investigation by the highest levels of our government both at the state and federal level.
China forcibly restrains mothers in order to kill unborn children inside their mother’s wombs in order to comply with China’s one child policy per family. Warning to all pregnant visitors traveling for work or for play to the United Kingdom (UK). The UK forcibly sedates pregnant, momentarily anxiety ridden visitors, seeking assistance in its nation. A plea for help by the police resulted in the cutting open via court ordered C-section of its Italian pregnant caller who had traveled to the UK for work. The pregnant temporary resident had misplaced her two daughter’s passports and had called the authorities for assistance in locating the documents. This request resulted in the immediate placement of the distraught professional into a psychiatric facility in which she was forcibly restrained and sedated.
As reported by Christopher Booker of the Telegraph, UK’s Social Services requested and obtained an order by the court to remove the mother’s unborn baby (without consent by Italian mother or American father) via C-Section. The baby is now fifteen months old and has been put up for adoption. As far as is being reported, it is unknown if the birth mother or birth father have ever been allowed to even see or visit their daughter. In our opinion, the UK’s ‘all-knowing’ Social service workers and ‘We know what’s best for you and your children’ Family jurisdictional courts are predators of the worst kind and the United States Department of Social Services Family and Children’s system is also quite broken.
We will keep you updated on this shocking case which is now before the appeal courts with one of the best UK’s solicitors that can be retained Brendan Fleming as well as John Hemming, MP who has helped other foreign parents in similar less bizarre cases. This seems to be the most extreme case that either party has ever seen or heard of. According to Hemming having an unborn baby forcibly removed from it’s own mother and sent out to be adopted is:
“extraordinary, unlike any other case I have come across, and one I hope to raise in Parliament.” ~PBN
Happy Chanukah to all in the Jewish faith in Israel, America, and around the world! We here at PBN pray that all Jews are safe during this holy time, and at all times during all years. We pray imprecatory prayers against the Muslims who would seek to do harm against those in the Jewish faith, and that God would stop them in his righteous might. –PBN
Yesterday’s White House press “gaggle” hosted by deputy Press Secretary to President Barack Hussein Obama, Josh Earnest Los Angeles
Q Back on Iran — you guys put out a statement on Levinson this morning. Is that situation at all playing into the negotiations, and in what context, and how?
MR. EARNEST: That’s a good question. The negotiations that we’re having through the P5-plus-1 with Iran are related strictly to Iran’s nuclear program and the importance of Iran bringing that nuclear program into compliance with their international obligations.
However, as we mentioned at the time, the President when he telephoned President Rouhani earlier this fall specifically raised the case of Mr. Levinson who was last seen in Iran. The President asked President Rouhani for his assistance in locating Mr. Levinson and determining his wellbeing.
The President also raised the case of Mr. Abedini and Mr. Hekmati, who are currently detained in Iran. It’s our view that all of these Americans should have the opportunity to come home. And as the statement pointed out, the United States government has made a respectful request of the Iranian regime during this holiday season to consider on humanitarian grounds releasing these three Americans — or at least releasing the two Americans that we know are detained, and locating the whereabouts of the third, Mr. Levinson, who as of this week is one of the longest-held American captives in history.
Q Is there any progress in locating him that you’re aware of?
MR. EARNEST: Nothing that I’m able to report at this point.
Update: It seems that after being criticized for failing to secure the release of Iranian-American pastor Saeed Abedini, the Obama administration on Tuesday made an appeal for his return, and that of Amir Hekmati and Bob Levinson.
USA!!! God’s promises are true! When The Lord called out to Lazarus “Come forth!” He said it was not for Himself that he did so but for those who loved Lazarus and who were watching. There is a powerful message in that one line. Everyone, and I mean everyone, had absolutely given up Hope. Lazarus was dead. In fact he was four days dead, buried in a tomb in the highest heat of the summer. Those who gathered near to watch Jesus go near the tomb to open it warned of the overwhelming stench of death and decay. Jesus paid them no attention. He was on a mission to reverse the irreversible! To speak life into death. Hope into doubt. Wholeness of body, mind and soul into loss, death, decay and rot. “Lazarus Come forth!” The Lord shouted and indeed, wrapped in grave cloths, Lazarus arose, stood and walked out into the sun into The Presence of The Son of God The Lord Jesus and his awestruck speechless loved ones. Christ had Lazarus’ family immediately remove his grave clothes off and soon gave him food and drink. Lazarus, their loved one on earth, was alive and with them once again! What a miracle! What rejoicing ensued! Hallelujah! Let us have such faith and even greater faith than that!
In 1959 Ian Donald noted that clear echoes could be obtained from the fetal head and began to apply this information. I became involved shortly afterwards, and indeed was given the project to play with on my own. At the Royal Maternity Hospital, Rottenrow, there was no separate room to examine the patients and not even a cupboard in which to keep the apparatus, so my colleague, the physicist Tom Duggan, and I pushed it about on a trolley and approached patients in the wards for permission to examine them at the bedside. Glasgow women are wonderful and they accepted all this without demur …….. . We applied the method of fetal head measurement to assess the size and growth of the foetus. When the Queen Mother’s Hospital opened in 1964 it became possible to refine the technique greatly. My colleague Dr. Stuart Campbell (now Professor at King’s College Hospital, London) did this and fetal cephalometry became the standard method for the study of fetal growth for many years.- Excerpted from an article in the University of Glasgow publication ‘Avenue’ No. 19: January 1996 entitled ‘ Medical Ultrasound —- A Glasgow Development which Swept the World ‘, by Dr. James Willocks MD, who had best described the circumstances of Donald’s early work.
“Out of sight is to be out of mind,” goes the old cliche. The precise quote, “Out of sight, out of mind. The absent are always in the wrong.” – Thomas a Kempis
When it’s applied to an unborn baby in an uniformed or misinformed (and possibly scared to death, pregnant for the first time) mother’s womb, the cliché may end in a deadly way. Particularly now, in abortionists clinics across the land since the highest court of the land refuses to hear an appeal by Oklahoma officials desiring to see ultrasounds required to be performed prior to killing a fetus in the act of abortion. Or as many see it, prior to murdering an innocent soon to be born human being.
Congratulations to the newly weds, George Soros and Tamiko Bolton who are celebrating their new marriage to one another as of September 21. 2013. It is shocking however their choice of suggested donations in lieu of gifts.
In lieu of gifts, the couple asked that donations be made to charities, including Global Witness, Harlem Children’s Zone, National Dance Institute, Planned Parenthood and the Roma Education Fund.
So, does suggesting to guests to donate to Planned Parenthood equate to possibly aiding in killing an unwanted baby in the act of an abortion? Potentially, and unfortunately, the high likelihood is yes! Planned parenthood does not make its money in preventative women’s “healthcare” or performing mammograms (it doesn’t do mammograms at all but refers out to other unrelated providers) no matter what Obama says.
