SEAL Mom Has a Message for Obama

After finally choosing to view the barbaric, on-camera beheading of freelance war correspondent James Foley, I’ve been left with a level of rage known only to those of us who have sacrificed unspeakable offerings on the altar of world peace.

My offering was my only son—Aaron Carson Vaughn. Aaron was a member of SEAL Team VI. He was killed in action when a CH47D Chinook, carrying thirty Americans and eight Afghans was shot down in the Tangi River Valley of Afghanistan on August 6, 2011.

 Many times over the past three years, I’ve been asked what drove my son to choose his particular career. What made him want to be a Navy SEAL? My answer is simple.

 Aaron Vaughn was a man who possessed the courage to acknowledge evil. And evil, once truly acknowledged, demands response. Perhaps this is why so few are willing to look it in the eye. It is much simpler—much safer—to look the other way. read more

ISIS Must Be Exterminated

by: the Common Constitutionalist

So much for the Islamic creed of dealing with a conquered people. It used to be that the conquered had three choices – convert to Islam, pay a hefty tribute and live as a second-class citizen, or die.

Now it seems, at least for the Islamic State, the second option is off the table, which leaves two bad choices – convert or die. Not much of a choice, because conversion means not only Islam as your chosen faith, but radicalized Islam and Sharia law.

But that’s the fate of the Yazidis. When their villages were overrun by ISIS barbarians, those who couldn’t or didn’t escape have been forced to surrender to the Caliphate and presented with the choice of convert or die.

The Islamic State released a video showing hundreds of Yazidi men taking part in a forced “conversion” ceremony.

MailOnline reports that one of the ISIS fighters said: “What has been said is the opposite of reality”, meaning the Yazidis weren’t forced to convert and they haven’t been abused. He (the fighter) claims that, “Men, women and children had converted and I was with them and they are happy with their conversions. We advise the Yazidis to come down from the mountain and convert.”

Yes, I’m sure the Yazidi men are saying to one another, “Wow – this is great. Why didn’t we do this long ago? Wait… where did all our women go? Oh that’s right – they were all taken to serve as concubines for our new benevolent rulers. We’re cool with that.” read more
