Every year about this time there’s a pious politician public event called the National Prayer Breakfast.
Two years ago Dr. Ben Carson made his political debut there. The soft spoken brain surgeon insulted President Obama by ordering off the menu and choosing health savings accounts instead of ObamaCare. Now the good doctor is contemplating his own run for the president’s seat at the table.
At last year’s breakfast, after trying to force the Little Sisters of the Poor to buy birth control and morning after pills, Obama droned about religious freedom.
This year he made headlines providing the insight that Crusaders killed in the name of religion 1000 years ago. Not only that, Christians were responsible for Jim Crow.
A couple weeks ago Bob Menedez compared President Obama’s threat to veto any sanctions on Iran to “talking points that come straight out of Tehran”. Our philosopher king’s prayer breakfast lecture on Thursday could have been mistaken for talking points straight out of the Islamic State. He called on Christians to get off their high horse about man burning ISIS jihadis. He then reminded them that Crusaders did bad things in the name of Christ. A thousand years ago.
Ralph Peters will take two centuries of Crusades against “14 centuries of slaughtered, enslaved, raped, and oppressed Christians who endured Islam’s endless jihad” any day.
The White House won’t negotiate with Islamic State because it’s a terror organization. President Obama swapped five Gitmo terrorists with the Taliban for deserter Bo Bergdahl because the Taliban is not a terror group. It’s an insurgency group. The president does have a strategy.
It’s “never again’ time again.
The beginning of January marked the murder of 4 Jews at a Kosher market as part of the Charlie Hebdo cartoonist massacre. Last week marked the 70th anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz concentration camp.
Also last week, Dr. Krauthammer and Professor Victor Davis Hanson wrote about the current status of Jews in the world. “Never again” isn’t a sure thing. Anti-semitism has been the norm in Europe “for millennia” reports Krauthammer. The murder of 6 million Jews by the losing side set the cause back for a while. But now it’s on the rise again.
Jews aren’t concentrated in Europe anymore. Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasralla likes funneling them into Israel. Krauthammer says, “It took the Nazis seven years to kill 6 million Jews. It would take a nuclear Iran one day.”
President Obama was a no-show at the Charlie Hebdo world leaders’ march for solidarity. He’ll be a no-show in March for Bibi’s speech to Congress too.
In the meantime, The Washington Free Beacon reports that Iran has targeted Benjamin Netanyahu’s children for assassination.
I came across a piece in the Sunday NYT by Nicholas Kristof about child proofing firearms. He wonders why a PIN can’t be used to password protect your guns just like your cell phones. Makes sense. He calls them “smart guns”. Of course then you’d have to get a kid to tell you how to us it.
It turns out a smart gun has already been invented. By a 17 year old kid. His name is
