(Al Arabiya) 26 year old Reyhaneh Jabbari is awaiting her public execution after already serving 7 years in prison for her alleged crime of killing a member of the Islamic Fascist Iranian intelligence service Morteza Sarbandi, a sexual predator in self-defense when she was just 19 years old.
Reyhaneh tortured by Iranian authorities until she confessed to the “murder” of Morteza, has been sentenced to death by hanging.
While Reyhaneh Jabbari’s death sentenced has been temporarily delayed, she may be hanged at anytime.
In 2013 Asieh Amini, one of Iran’s most famous Women’s rights activists who has been fighting the Islamic Fascist regime’s judicial system which ‘systematically discriminates’ against Women, recalled a case that would change her life.
Working as a journalist Amini remembered 16 yr old Atefeh Sahleh who had been raped regularly since the age of 10, she was given money to shut her up–later Sahleh was jailed for prostitution which the Iranian regime called “extramarital sex”and subsequently sentenced her to death by stoning.
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani which the Obama Administration insists is a moderate that they can work with, claims that arbitrary executions are “God’s Commandment” since Rouhani took office, there have been more than 700 execution in Iran.

Facebook Censors Blocks Me From Sharing Content and Removes
‘Natl Catholic Register’ Post From News Feed
One could say that I’m in pretty good company.
Earlier this week FOX News Todd Starnes reported that content that he posted on Facebook, was removed and he was temporarily blocked from sharing content until they “had a change of heart.”
It wasn’t all that many months ago the ‘Facebook Police’ threatened to shut-down Conservative Chicks on the Right for what censors claimed were posts critical of the Obama administration–heaven forbid that a politician is criticized.
Its really not clear what the ‘Facebook Police” found to be so offensive, vulgar, violent or so politically incorrect about the content that I wished to share from the Natl Catholic Register–Pittsburgh Bishop Zubik Rejects Common Core which they also removed from the news feed, unless now the Catholic Church is subject to the same scrutiny that many Conservatives are?
In January 2009 I wrote here that the China regime was cracking down on major websites and search engines such as Google and Baidu, claiming that its because they spread pornography and other objectionable material (such as articles about the 1989 Tiananmen Square massacre–I digress) that may corrupt young peoples minds.
Free speech in China (as well as on Facebook here in the United States) is essential in the pursuit of learning, every idea or thought is not an avenue of incitement, censorship only results in finding cracks in the Great Firewall of China.
Facebook censors working overtime to protect any criticism of the Obama administration and its policies, may want to note that behaving much like the China Regime Internet Police is really rather embarrassing.
(Ynet) President Obama signed legislation into law, blocking Islamic Fascist Iran from sending Hamid Aboutalebi as their ambassador to the United Nations–the legislation bars anyone from entering the United States as a UN representative if they’ve engaged in espionage or terrorist activity and continue to pose a security threat to the U.S.
Aboutalebi, was a member of the Muslim Student followers of Ayatollah Khomeini which was responsible for the kidnapping of 52 Americans during the 1979 Iranian revolution and holding them in captivity for 444 days until their release was announced by President Reagan during his first inaugural address.
Obama claimed that he shares Congressional lawmakers concerns that terrorists could use diplomatic cover to enter the United States but said that he will only treat the legislation that he signed into law as ‘an advisory’ opinion as it may interfere with his discretion to receive ambassadors.
When was the Constitution repealed that gave Wannabe King Obama the authority to pick and choose which laws to obey?
(CBS News) President Obama put Vladimir Putin ‘On-Notice’ Wednesday evening, that there will be serious consequences if Russia takes further military action in the Ukraine.
In March, the Obama Administration ‘warned’ the Russian’s that there would be “serious consequences” if last ditch talks to resolve the Ukrainian crisis were not resolved.
It still doesn’t appear that Vladimir Putin has received that memo.
In related news, Haaretz reports that pro-Russian separatists in Eastern Ukraine, have posted a notice near a local synagogue ordering that all Jews register or face deportation.
Ukrainian crisis is sounding eerily familiar to Nazi Germany everyday.
(Intl Business Times) The growing trend of taking smartphone selfies is linked to a mental health condition, that focuses on a persons obsession with looks.
According to Psychiatrist David Veal, “Two out of three of all patients who come to see me with Body dysmorphic disorder since the rise of camera phones, have a compulsion to repeatedly take and post selfies on social media sites.”
“Cognitive behavioral therapy is used to help a patient to recognize the reasons for his or her compulsive behavior and then learn how to moderate it,” Dr Veal told the Sunday Mirror.

(Daily Caller) Pediatric Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the the White House solicited ‘an apology’ from him for hurting Obama’s little bitty feelings subsequent to his conservative message at the Natl Prayer Breakfast last year.
Dr Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Univ Hospital recalls the events surrounding his 2013 address in his new book One Nation: What We Can All Do to Save America’s Future set to be released on the 20 May:
“He did not appear to be hostile or angry (speaking about Obama) but within minutes after the conclusion of the program, I received a call from some of the prayer breakfast organizers saying that the White House was upset and requesting that I call the president and apologize for offending him…I said that I didn’t think that such a call was warranted.”
On the 10th April, I wrote here that U.S. Atty General Eric Holder
claimed went crying at Rev Al Sharpton’s Natl Action Network last week in New York, that he and Obama are ‘victims’ of “unprecedented, unwarranted, ugly and divisive adversity” from critics of the Obama Administration.
Obama has been elected twice and Holder has been Atty General throughout the Obama Administration–Its long overdue that they Man-up, together with the staff and supporters and stop playing the victim of ones own circumstance–no one forced Obama and Holder to seek and hold public office.
As one wiser than I once said, “If one can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen.”
(YouGov) In a new YouGov/Economist poll released on Monday, 65% of respondents surveyed ‘have not’ even attempted to visit an ObamaCare website, 31% said they have, 4% were unsure.
These results call into question the dubious 7 million ObamaCare enrollees which the White House claims is evidence that the ACA has met its goal.
In related health care news Newsmax reported on Monday, ObamaCare patients who go to a doctor for their ‘supposedly’ free annual check-ups are finding out they may not be as ‘free’ as one was told.
“Patients are scheduling physicals because physicals are free,” Dr Randy Wexler in Columbus, OH said, “They come in and say, ‘I’ve been having headaches, my back has been bothering me and I am depressed,” that’s not part of the physical. That will trigger a co-pay.”
Wellness care on potential new health issues are viewed as ‘evaluation and monitoring’ and leads to patients having to fork out for their so called ‘free’ annual physicals.
(FOX News) A recent survey of 148 insurance brokers shows that health insurance premiums are seeing their sharpest price increase perhaps ever and are largely due to changes mandated by ObamaCare.
For the individual insurance market seeing the sharpest increases in prices:
For the small group market seeing the sharpest increases in prices:
Flashback: Gone are the days when Obama claimed that health insurance premiums for a family would be $2,500 lower by the end of his first term, they were already actually about $3,000 higher according to The Wall Street Journal in January, 2013 a spread of $5,500 per family.
Another Obama broken promise.

(CBS Los Angeles) The average price for a gallon of self-serve regular gas has spiked to their highest levels since last Summer. On Thursday, according to Santa Clarita Valley Signal regular unleaded gas prices average $4.07 to $4.29 a gallon.
Flashback: Remember when then candidate for president Senator Barack Obama said that rising gasoline prices were a crisis and the result of George W Bush’s failed energy policies, or when Rep Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) blasted George Bush for high gas prices and when Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) echoing Pelosi’s comments said that gasoline prices were “the number one issue facing America today.”
Where is the outrage from Democrats today during Obama’s Watch???
