Watch: This Inspirational Woman Who Survived The Unthinkable Tells All To Megyn Kelly - Western Journalism

Meriam Ibraheem, a Sudanese Christian woman, was sentenced to death for refusing to give up her Christian beliefs.

In this interview with Megyn Kelly, she reveals how she was able to say no to renouncing her faith, as well as saying that she had God on her side throughout the whole ordeal.

Kelly asked Ibraheem why she didn’t just say what they wanted to hear and save her life.
“If I did that, then that would mean that I gave up. It’s not possible because it’s not true. It’s my right to follow the religion of my choice. I’m not the only one suffering from this problem. There are many ‘Mariams’ in Sudan and throughout the world.”

“My faith was the only weapon that I had in these confrontations with imams and Muslim scholars because that’s what I believe,” she said.
While Ibraheem was imprisoned, with her four-year-old child, she also gave birth to another. But she did so with chains on her legs.

Jerry Brown’s Crony Capitalism is driving businesses out out California. - Neel Kashkari

Instead of addressing the economic needs of our state, Jerry Brown and his Sacramento cronies pass legislation that benefits them and their political allies only.

This ‘What’s in it for me?” attitude from Brown has led to businesses fleeing California, leaving more middle class families struggling to find work.

As governor, (Neel Kashkari) will actually pay attention to the needs of our state rather than picking and choosing favorites. ◼ SIGN HERE if you agree!

DHS boss Jeh Johnson may have tried to cover up the truth about four people with known terror ties who tried to sneak into the United States the day before 9/11

Wait’ll You See What Obama’s DHS Boss Just Admitted About Terrorists At Our Border - Western Journalism

DHS Secretary is suffering from intense disinterest in border security. - HotAir

Bad timing as individuals with terrorist ties were reportedly spotted attempting to cross the border.

Watch: In Just 68 Seconds Ted Cruz Gave The ONE Thing America Can Do In Iraq To Stop ISIS

‘When I asked General Dempsey, ‘militarily how would we go in and kill the terrorists before they are able to take jihad to America?’ His answer was ‘Well, we need to change conditions on the ground so people are not susceptible to extremism.’ Look, it’s not our job to be social workers in Iraq and put them all on expanded Medicaid. It is our job to kill terrorists who have declared war on America and demonstrated the intention and capability to murder innocent Americans.” - Western Journalism

Taken together, the results suggest a profoundly unsettled public mood, with two-thirds of Americans surveyed saying the country is on the wrong track and half disapproving of how Mr. Obama is doing his job, a negative assessment that threatens to be a substantial drag on Democrats in November.

Obama Faulted in Terror Fight, New Poll Finds - New York Times

With midterm elections approaching, Americans’ fears about a terrorist attack on United States soil are on the rise, and the public is questioning Mr. Obama’s strategy for combating the militant organization calling itself the Islamic State, also known as the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria. Most respondents say the president has no clear plan for confronting the group, and that he has not been tough enough in dealing with it.

Kerry urges Syrians to fight 'Isis first' as Obama rules out combat mission – as it happened - The Guardian - Live updates
Obama says ‘no combat mission’ for US troops in Iraq
House of Representatives passes bill to arm Syrian rebels
Secretary of State John Kerry testifies before Congress
Kerry: ‘there will be some strange bedfellows’ in coalition
Senators criticise ‘Isis first’ policy and classified details

Kerry got into a heated exchange with Corker who said, "I want to say as I said personally, we have three senators, president, vice president, secretary of state, that are exercising terrible judgment right now. And to say that you're going to do this regardless of what we say, you're not going to ask for buy-in by the United States Senate or House of Representatives on behalf of the American people in a conflict that's going to be multiyear. Some people say a decade. Taking us into another country with a different enemy, is exercising the worst judgment possible." - Breitbart

Benghazi hearings about to force the press to pay attention

The press can't keep ignoring the devious practices of the Clintons: - HotAir

Only Fox has been regularly covering the upcoming hearings and updating their viewers on the new details and recently uncovered revelations relating to the attacks which the committee will parse. Save Fox, none of the cable networks and no broadcast outlets have mentioned new revelations from former Deputy Assistant Secretary Raymond Maxwell who told reporter Sharyl Attkisson that “close confidants” of Clintons removed documents relating to the Benghazi attacks before investigators had the opportunity to review them.

“Maxwell says that members of the select House committee on Benghazi have already deposed him on this weekend filing session, including both chair Trey Gowdy and Rep. Jason Chaffetz. Chaffetz told Attkisson that he is ‘100% confident the Benghazi Select Committee is going to dive deep on that issue,’” Ed Morrissey wrote.

Is this so hard to believe? It is not like Clinton confidants do not have a history of boosting sensitive documents from federal facilities before investigators have had a chance to check them out.

Given that, it makes little sense for the press to continue to ignore these revelations. If they are going to come up in the committee proceedings, as seems possible, it makes sense for cable to prime their viewers even if the aim is (as it would be for outlets like MSNBC) to preemptively defuse the charge.

“I assume there are swipe cards or video records." -- Sharyl Attkisson on the alleged document cover-up she broke this week. - Daily Signal

The Benghazi Scandal Is About To Get Uglier -- And It Starts Today. Here's What You Need to Know.
The House special committee investigating the Benghazi terrorist attacks, convening its first public hearing tomorrow, will examine the State Department’s progress in implementing a review board’s security recommendations.

But the Select Committee on Benghazi also will begin to look into allegations, first reported yesterday in The Daily Signal, that top aides to then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton oversaw the sifting of Benghazi-related documents detrimental to her before turning over files to the Accountability Review Board.

In comments to reporters today, Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., chairman of the select panel, said he wants to question Raymond Maxwell, the retired State Department official who described a scene in a basement room of the State Department to investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson, who wrote the story for The Daily Signal.

Maxwell made “very serious” allegations, Gowdy said, which are “a perfect example for why this committee exists.”
9 top questions for the Benghazi Select Committee - IBD
The long-awaited House Select Committee on Benghazi begins its historic open hearings today. The chair is Rep. Trey Gowdy of South Carolina, a no-nonsense former federal and state prosecutor now in his second House term.

The 50-year-old Gowdy's challenges include herding GOP colleagues in a coherent investigative direction while combating the anticipated pre-election obfuscations and complaints of Democrat members eager to protect President Obama and his wannabe successor Hillary Clinton.

But the committee's most important duty is ferreting out credible answers to thousands of questions about the deadly night of 9/11/12 when four Americans died at the hands of terrorists, the numerous conflicting accounts of that night and deciphering the administration's ensuing coverup.

Anyone familiar with the sordid Benghazi story can construct their own list of compelling queries....

Terrorist Fail: ISIS’ Latest Attack Just Blew Up In Their Faces And They Paid The Price

At least 14 soldiers of the Islamic State were killed near Baghdad when a warhead that they had been filling with chlorine gas exploded on them. - Western Journalism

Chlorine gas has been used in Syria, but this was the first time it has been used in Iraq.

The use of chemical weapons by Bashar al-Assad’s regime supposedly ended by agreement, but there has been continued evidence of the use of the substance in the country after the agreement.

Democrats turn on Debbie Wasserman Schultz

Democratic National Committee Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz is in a behind-the-scenes struggle with the White House, congressional Democrats and Washington insiders who have lost confidence in her as both a unifying leader and reliable party spokesperson at a time when they need her most. - Politico

Long-simmering doubts about her have reached a peak after two recent public flubs: criticizing the White House’s handling of the border crisis and comparing the tea party to wife beaters....

She’s become a liability to the DNC, and even to her own prospects, critics say.

“I guess the best way to describe it is, it’s not that she’s losing a duel anywhere, it’s that she seems to keep shooting herself in the foot before she even gets the gun out of the holster,” said John Morgan, a major donor in Wasserman Schultz’s home state of Florida....

House Committee Launches Benghazi Probe

"Maybe, just maybe, we can be what those four brave men were. Neither Republican nor Democrat. Just Americans in pursuit of the facts" - Trey Gowdy - Washington Examiner

Gowdy’s panel pulls no punches. - Le-gal In-sur-rec-tion

The House Committee tasked with uncovering what really happened when Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans were murdered at the U.S. embassy in Benghazi held its first hearing today, reigniting the firestorm surrounding the State Department’s alleged mishandling of diplomatic security in the region....

Pundits drew a sharp contrast between the tone of today’s hearings, and past hearings on Benghazi led by Representative Darrell Issa (R-CA). Even reliable liberal Dana Milbank of the Post was forced to admit that Gowdy and his allies handled what has become a controversial situation—both in topic and with regards to the Committee itself—fairly:
There was no discussion of talking points or stand-down orders, and only one of the seven Republicans on the panel — Jim Jordan of Ohio — even mentioned Clinton. Instead, Gowdy adopted as the theme of his first hearing an idea suggested by one of the committee’s Democrats, Adam Schiff of California: How well the State Department has been implementing recommendations to prevent future attacks on U.S. diplomats like the one in Libya two years ago that killed four Americans.

This is exactly what congressional oversight should be: a bipartisan effort by legislators to make sure executive-branch officials don’t repeat past mistakes. The resulting bonhomie was unprecedented in the two years of Benghazi bickering.

What Is About To Be Exposed About Benghazi Could Be Obama’s Last Mistake In Office… - Western Journalism
The House Panel will further investigate the Benghazi attacks this week.

On September 17, three security experts will highlight the best practices in compound security.

Once the security experts school the House on proper safety protocol, it will become clear that Obama dropped the ball once again.

But this is only part of the story unfolding.

You see, months of meticulous research have exposed Obama’s insidious involvement in the Benghazi attacks. And all the details will come to light this week…

It's about time! Gowdy probe of Benghazi gets going as "incredibly serious" new allegations of a Hillary-related coverup surface. - Western Journalism

Benghazi-Gate: Gowdy Hearings To Probe Explosive Allegations Of Hiding For Hillary...Gowdy has called the new allegations that certain documents were hidden from the official Benghazi review board “incredibly serious.”

Investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson broke the story of the alleged coverup and spoke with Fox News about what she’s learned. You can see her interview by clocking on the video above.

Man Survives Rare Cancer Thanks to New 'Targeted' Therapy

James “Rocky” Lagno was so sick that doctors only gave him about a year to live. Having been diagnosed with late-stage lung cancer, even aggressive chemotherapy and radiation didn’t prevent the New Hampshire native’s tumors from growing larger. - ABC

To top it off, he was also diagnosed with thyroid cancer and then, several months later, an MRI revealed a dozen brain lesions.

“The oncologist told me I should probably think about getting my bucket list together” Lagno, 53, recalled of the 2011 conversation he had with his doctor.

Fortunately for Lagno, his wife, Geralynn, lobbied for a biopsy that uncovered a rare genetic mutation linked to lung cancer. Once discovered, Lagno was entered into a clinical trial to test out a relatively new approach to cancer treatment known as molecular targeted therapy.

Traditional cancer drugs are indiscriminant, attacking not just cancer cells but every living cell in the body. Molecular targeting agents like the one Lagno received - which are no longer experimental and are being used with increasing frequency - are designed to target specific cancer mutations, explained Washington University in St. Louis cancer researcher, Elaine Mardis.

“Many cancers revolve around novel proteins that are highly active and constantly stimulated so that the growth of cancer is stimulated,” Mardis said. “These new targeted drugs seek out these novel proteins and shut them down.”

A plea for constitutional literacy on Constitution Day

The safeguard against government intrusion is a return to the Founding document - Ben Carson/Washington Times

Earlier this summer, I managed to perplex, perhaps even offend, a famous TV interviewer when I declared I wanted a federal government that followed the U.S. Constitution. Seemingly aghast, the interviewer went so far as to suggest my position was a “highly charged thing to say.”

Imagine that. A journalist who, owing to the Constitution, has the right to report freely and to speak freely, being uncomfortable to hear a fellow American swear allegiance to the Constitution and the Founding Fathers’ vision of a limited central government....

How do we reverse this creeping despair that we have drifted too far away from our founding principles? It’s simple. I think we must go back to the source of our great American experiment — the U.S. Constitution. In a little more than 4,500 words, the Framers created a vision of government that preserved liberty first and foremost and yet found a way to serve the basic needs of a republic. For 200 years, that document guided this great nation through dark times and soaring success. For most of our history, schoolchildren were taught the guiding principles of the Constitution from the earliest age, and even members of Congress with controversial civil rights histories such as the late Sen. Strom Thurmond of South Carolina and Sen. Robert C. Byrd of West Virginia kept a copy of that great document in their jacket pocket to remind them of the responsibilities and limits of governance.

On this Constitution Day, a wonderful holiday created with bipartisan support just a few short years ago, let’s recommit ourselves to rereading and appreciating our Constitution and ensuring that our children and our children’s children grow up with the same appreciation we were given. Familiarity with the greatest ideas ever created for preserving liberty will breed appreciation. Appreciation will help us all overcome the ignorant political correctness of a few media elites and governing officials who seem to dismiss the fundamental principles of a government that respected liberty first and foremost.
