Watch: Brother Of Oregon Shooting Victim Reveals What He Wants To Tell Obama To His Face

The brother of one of the victims of the Umpqua College shooter has a stark message for Barack Obama: stop with the anti-gun agenda.

Jessy Atkinson, the brother of victim Cheyenne Fitzgerald who was seriously injured in the shooting, appeared on CNN on Monday. When asked what he’d say to President Obama, the young man had a stern message.

“I would tell him to look where the problem really lies and quit running the agenda–quit running the gun agenda,” Atkinson said. “It’s not the problem. It’s mental health in America. It’s obvious. All of us talk about it and I don’t know why we are hiding from it.”

“We waste so much money and so much resources where they shouldn’t be overseas,” Atkinson continued. “We waste it on the war on drugs, you know we lock people up for smoking pot and waste tax dollars on that when we cold be dumping it into healthcare systems and really make an impact in ourselves.”

“It doesn’t seem like our country is going in the right direction and it’s sad,” he concluded.

The mother of the shooting victim, Bonnie Schaan, was also on with Jessy and she chimed in against Obama’s gun ban agenda by telling Anderson Cooper, “I feel that our children should be able to protect themselves somehow.”

Jessy Atkinson and his mother Bonnie aren’t the only people impacted by the murders at Umpqua college who are scolding Obama for pushing his anti-gun agenda over the bodies of the victims. Several other family members of shooting victims have also come out against Obama’s politicized gun rhetoric.

The area is in such support of the Second Amendment that when the President announced his intention to fly out to Oregon to visit with families of the victims, the editor of a local newspaper said that Obama would not be welcome with his unconstitutional, anti-Second Amendment agenda in their town.

Liberals Are Losing It Over One Sentence Ben Carson Just Said About Shootings

In what has become a controversial response to a question his campaign received, Dr. Ben Carson shared a decisive stance in favor of the Second Amendment. Carson solicits emails from members of the public with questions for him, choosing some to answer publicly via social media.

One such individual wondered if the recent Oregon mass shooting had any impact on Carson’s support of legal gun ownership. Despite having been affected personally by gun violence, however, he said he remains committed to preserving the fundamental right to bear arms.

“I saw plenty of gun violence as a child,” he wrote. “Both of my cousins were killed on the streets.”

Later, as a surgeon, he noted that he witnessed the devastation such weapons can inflict.

“There is no doubt that this senseless violence is breathtaking,” he acknowledged, “– but I never saw a body with bullet holes that was more devastating than taking the right to arm ourselves away.”

He went on to excoriate leftist activists for politicizing this and other tragedies; however, it was his reference to bullet holes that evoked the wrath of many political detractors.

Jen Hayden, writing for the left-leaning Daily Kos, insisted that Carson — and all GOP presidential candidates — “continue[s] to hide behind an antiquated and often misunderstood Second Amendment,” which she presented as “the definition of cowardice.”

While a number of gun control activists panned Carson’s remark, his impassioned defense of American rights resonated with many others.

“I love that Dr. Ben speaks softly with the language of a gentleman,” one Facebook user wrote, “yet has an iron will and means what he says.”

She Was Made The World’s First Lesbian Bishop. Now She Wants Churches To Do THIS

The question of how accommodating churches should be toward other religions has risen sharply in importance over the past few years.

Eva Brunne was made the world’s first openly lesbian bishop by the church of Sweden back in 2009. She has a young son with her wife and fellow lesbian priest Gunilla Linden.

Brunne recently told a priest in Stockholm that he should remove all signs of the cross and have markings of the way to pray toward Mecca for the benefit of Muslim worshippers.

The church is the Seaman’s mission church, located in Stockholm’s eastern dockyards.

Brunne said she wanted a place where sailors of other faiths could come to pray.

She said that Muslim visitors to the church were “angels.”

In a post on her official blog, Brunne defended her idea, saying that to do otherwise would be “stingy towards people of other faiths”.

She also argued that airports and hospitals already have multi-faith prayer rooms, and it is time for the mission church in Stockholm to adapt.

Father Patrik Petterson, a priest active in the same parish as the mission church, took issue with Brunne’s views on his blog.

He said that the bishop’s words were “theologically unthinking,” and wrote: “Ignoring the rhetorical murmuring. The only argument bishop Eva really put forward in support of her view is ‘hospitality’… How do you respond to that? Not much of a basis for discussion, as one colleague put it. The theological, ecclesiological, pastoral and working issues are left untouched.”

The church director of the Seaman’s mission church stated: “I have no problem with Muslim or Hindu sailors coming here and praying. But I believe that we are a Christian church, so we keep the symbols. If I visit a mosque I do not ask them to take down their symbols. It’s my choice to go in there.”

What do you think of the bishop’s comments that crosses should be taken down and the way to Mecca marked in the Seaman’s church?

Watch: Giuliani Reveals Stunning Number Of Federal Crimes Hillary ‘Should Be Investigated For’

As federal investigators look into the email scandal plaguing Hillary Clinton’s White House bid, former New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani relied on his prosecutorial past to offer some insight. Appearing on Fox News’ America’s Newsroom Tuesday, Giuliani said that news reports appear to show evidence that Clinton was involved in multiple federal crimes.

“She committed, on the face of it, crimes,” he told co-anchor Martha MacCallum. “In other words, if the facts are as reported in the papers, there are crimes that she committed.”

He went on to cite several reported acts that could result in criminal charges, including an infraction of “the Government Records Act, in which you are supposed to use due care in the handling of government records.”

Giuliani added that reports suggest “she revealed classified information to people who it wasn’t supposed to go to” and “put classified information in unsecure locations.”

Assuming those allegations are true, he concluded, “these are things other people get prosecuted for.”

He provided a relatively recent example with the prosecution of former CIA Director Gen. David Petraeus “for doing approximately one-tenth of what she was alleged to have done.”

MacCallum noted the Clinton campaign’s seizure on a quote from U.S. House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., which is being portrayed as an admission that the investigation behind these allegations was partisan in nature.

“That’s a pretty good attempt to do the vast right-wing conspiracy thing she did before,” Giuliani acknowledged, “but this time it’s not going to work.”

He said he could produce “a list of 15” federal crimes “that she should be investigated for, for which there needs to be an answer.”

That answer, he concluded, appears to be that “there’s probable cause to believe she committed a crime.”

Giulini qualified his comments, saying he is not privy to the facts of the case and is relying only on media reports.

“But if you read the New York Times,” he concluded, “what they say, she violated the conflict of interest law.”

ISIS Just Issued A Very Specific Warning To American Christians In Its New Video

In a newly released video, ISIS chronicles Christians in a Syrian village being forced to obey Islamic law or die and promises the same treatment for American Christians.

The Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) reports the that the five-minute video entitled “Fight Those Who Do Not Believe In Allah” was posted over the weekend.

According to MEMRI

The video opens by showing ISIS fighters entering Qaryatayn and marching through its streets. A narrator stresses that after it was “liberated” by ISIS fighters from the “the tyrant’s soldiers [i.e. the army of Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad],” shari’a law had returned to the city and its Muslim residents are smiling again.

The narrator says that some of the city’s Christians had chosen to convert to Islam, while others preferred signing the dhimma contract, paying the jizya tax, and living in peace and security in the Islamic Caliphate state. Images are shown of ISIS fighters throwing a cross off the roof of a church and of a church hall destroyed by ISIS.

The Christians who were taken captive and remained in the city had four options:

One, the men could be killed and the women and children could be enslaved. Two, they could be exchanged for prisoners, money, or booty. Three, they could be pardoned, provided they leave the caliphate. Four, they could sign the dhimma contract and pay the jizya.

In the end, he says, “the caliph of Muslims [Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi] displayed kindness and generosity [to the Christians] and agreed to receive their jizya tax and allow them to live under caliphate rule as part of the dhimma contract.” He adds that “the leader of the Muslims” had agreed to give the Christians who fled the city an opportunity to sign the dhimma contract and to return within a month to their homes and fields.

The narrator concludes: “This is a message to all Christians in the East and West, and to the defender of the Cross – America: Convert to Islam and no harm will come to you. If you obey, you will have to pay the jizya poll tax.”

Breitbart is reporting that ISIS fighters killed 12 Syrian Christians, including a 12 year-old-boy who refused to convert to Islam. Christian Aid Mission recounted the brutal incident, which occurred on August 28 near the village of Aleppo in northern Syria. The boy was tortured in front of his father by cutting off his finger tips and then severely beating him. The father, who was responsible for planting 9 churches, was told that the torture would stop, if the man returned to Islam. The Christian leader refused, so he and his son and two other men in the group were crucified.

The other eight in the group were later beheaded, including two women (ages 29 and 33), who were raped first in front a crowd called to watch the executions.

Villagers said some were praying in the name of Jesus, others said some were praying the Lord’s Prayer, and others said some of them lifted their heads to commend their spirits to Jesus,” the ministry director told Christian Aid. “One of the women looked up and seemed to be almost smiling as she said, ‘Jesus!’”

According to The Gospel World Herald, “In Syria alone, the Christian population has plunged by nearly two-thirds since the country’s civil war started in 2011. In Iraq, the Christian population is teetering on extinction, dwindling from around 1.5 million in 2003 to well below 200,000 now.” While thousands have been killed, many more have fled the nation as refugees. 

“It is like going back 1,000 years seeing the barbarity that Christians are having to live under. I think we are dealing with a group which makes Nazism pale in comparison and I think they have lost all respect for human life,” Patrick Sookhdeo, founder of Barnabas Fund, a charity which seeks to help Syrian Christians, told the Daily Express.
