Many Faiths, A CommonView of Marriage

   Jackie Rivers, a Doctoral Fellow in African and African-American Studies at Harvard University.

The deleterious effects of being raised in single-headed households have been well documented. Children growing up in female-headed households experience higher rates of poverty. These children underperform in school: they earn lower scores on verbal and math achievement tests and lower grades in their courses. They have more behavioral problems, and higher rates of chronic health and psychiatric disorders. Adolescents and young adults raised without stable families experience elevated risks of teenage childbearing, of dropping out of high school, of being incarcerated, and of being idle (being neither employed nor in school).

“Those who promote what they call marriage equality have unjustly appropriated the language and the mantle of the black struggle in the United States, the Civil Rights Movement. But there can be no equivalence between blacks’ experience of slavery and oppression and the circumstances of homosexuals.”

About That Religion of Peace

Muslim Preacher at Al-Aqsa Mosque called upon Allah to annihilate America and its coalition, intoning, "Oh Allah, eliminate America and its coalition. Oh Allah, enable us to cut off their heads. Oh Allah help our brothers, the mujahideen in the land of Iraq and Syria."

(You ever notice the Quakers, the Amish and even the Baptists for that matter do not have any "beheading" prayers.)

Rudy Was Right

Though blacks are 13 percent of the nation’s population, they account for more than 50 percent of homicide victims. Nationally, blacks are murdered at a rate six times that of whites; in some cities, it’s 22 times the white rate.

In New York City, blacks made up 23 percent of the population in 2013, but suffered 62 percent of the homicides. Whites, at 44 percent of the population, numbered only 7.2 percent of murder victims.

So, truly, Obama was right Sunday: “Minority communities typically are subject to more crime.”

And so, too, was Rudy: “White police officers wouldn’t be there if you weren’t killing each other.”

Don't Tell the Truth in the Obama Administration

Taken as a whole, the original New York Times story paints a pretty damning picture of the White House’s national security policy setting. Mr. Hagel, so long as he was a loyal foot soldier for the President, was okay even if he was on the outside of the White House cool kidz team.

But the moment Hagel spoke up on ISIS, contradicting the White House, it was game over.

In other words, Chuck Hagel was not fired for incompetence. He was fired for telling the truth on ISIS — calling it an “imminent threat to every interest we have,” thereby forcing Barack Obama to deal with a threat he very much would like to ignore.

Obama. Hafel At the End of the Line

The steady stream of stories in recent weeks that suggested Hagel was having a difficult time penetrating the president’s inner circle carried echoes of Robert Gates and Leon Panetta, two past Defense secretaries who went on to write tell-all books critical of the president’s handling of defense policy.

Former Democratic aide Brent Budowsky said Democrats across the Capitol saw Hagel’s ouster as the latest example of “unprecedented” drama created by “too tight and too controlling of an inner circle.”

He noted that not only had each of the president’s previous Defense secretaries voiced concern over his Syria policy, so had former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

(That inner circle knows nothing about military matters and knows nothing about fighting a war.)
