Only Good News for 9-11-2013
Calvin’s Commentary: Today is 9-11. I’m posting some very good news for you to read on 9-11. While all the pundits, including all the conservative talk show hosts on radio and progressive liberals on TV are reiterating and interpreting what Obama said last night at 9 PM, I’m not going to focus on him. He is not good news! Besides, I have no idea what he said last night. I didn’t listen. I was working on these three posts at from 9 PM to after 2 AM.
Why am I posting these three good news items for 9-11?
First of all everyone of them is about American and Americans. That’s who we are!
Every year everyone of us Americans on 9-11 can remember exactly what we were doing the moment we heard what happened to the World Trade Center Buildings, Flight 93 in Shanksville, Pennsylvania, the Pentagon and 3,000 Americans.
We all can recall exactly how we felt all that day and in the weeks and months following, so I won’t go over it again. It was what Pearl Harbor was to our parents and grandparents. It punched us all in the stomach violently and pierced our hearts to cry tears of woe.
We all learned that prayer on our knees gave us peace. Many even took their dusty Holy Bibles off their shelves and read scriptues as they hadn’t done since an elder read them outloud years ago. We found going to Church meant more to us than anything else and fellowship with believers is what we needed to endure.
We all hung American Flags to show our patriotism and we joined together repeating, “U.S.A., U.S.A., U.S.A., U.S.A.!” We were one nation, united under God!
This year as our Wars on Terror in the Middle East continue seemingly ad infinitum from Iraq to Afganistan, to add to the woe in this 9-11 season, we found Obama and Secretary of State Kerry embarrassing and humiliating us in their mishandling of the crisis in Syria trying to get us into yet another quagmire of Islamic terroristic insurrection in Syria where 100,000 have been slaughtered by conventional warfare arms of mayhem and 1,400 have died from chemical warfare!
That is why I am going to go above all that endless sadness and just post three good news stories. We’ve had enough doom and gloom so I just going to emphasize the GOOD NEWS!
WITH EMPHASIS FIRST ON THE WORD OF GOD…BEFORE THE THREE NEWS ITEMS
[Psalm 118:24, 25, 29] This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.  Save now, I beseech thee, O LORD: O LORD, I beseech thee, send now prosperity.  O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.

Wisconsin Woman’s Awe-Inspiring Obituary a ‘Must Read’
“If you’re about to throw away an old pair of pantyhose, stop” is not the way most obituaries begin, but, then, according to her family, Mary A. “Pink” Mullaney was no ordinary woman.
The Wisconsite died on Sunday, Sept. 1, at the age of 85, leaving behind six children and 17 grandchildren who adored her so much they crafted an obituary so heartfelt and touching that it has made national headlines.
The obituary’s opening line stems from one of Mullaney’s most well-known maxims: Never throw away old pantyhose.
“Use the old ones for rosary repairs, to tie the gutter, childproof the cabinets, tie up the toilet flapper or hang Christmas ornaments,” reads the obituary, written by seven or eight of Mullaney’s children and grandchildren who gathered together in their hometown of Milwaukee after her death.
“We wanted it to portray who she was and her love for people and just her funny ways of going about it,” one of her sons, Kevin Mullaney, of Wake Forest, N.C., told ABCNews.com. “She was an extraordinary person in an ordinary way. Survived by so and so and accomplished this and that didn’t capture that.”
Mullaney, a devout Catholic who volunteered in a nursing home and delivered Communion up until age 81, also had kind and gentle rules surrounding the rituals of her faith.
“Let a dog (or two or three) sleep in bed with you. Say the rosary while you walk them. Go to church with a chicken sandwich in your purse. Cry at the consecration, every time. Give the chicken sandwich to your homeless friend after Mass. Go to a nursing home and kiss every person there, and let them have Communion, no matter if they are Catholic. When you learn someone’s name, share the story of their patron saint and when the feast day is, so they can celebrate,” the obituary reads.
“I see her as the hands and feet of Jesus,” said her son, 59. ” What she taught all of us is to love others as Christ loved us.”
Calling them the “many valuable lessons from Pink,” the “extended family of relations and friends from every walk of life and corner of the globe” also offered these nuggets in Mullaney’s obituary:
Invite new friends to Thanksgiving dinner. (“Every Thanksgiving there’d be somebody from Nigeria or somebody from Poland that nobody knew,” son Kevin Mullaney says of this rule.)
Never say mean things about rotten people, instead think of them as “poor souls who we should pray for.”
Put the children who are picky eaters in the laundry chute in the basement, close the door and tell them they are hungry lions in a cage and feed them their veggies through the slats.
Make the car dance by lightly tapping the brakes to the beat of songs on the radio.
Offer rides to people carrying a big load or caught in the rain or the summer heat.
Offer to help anyone struggling to get their kids in a car, into a shopping cart or across a parking lot.
Give to every single charity that asks. Choose to believe the best about what they do with your money, no matter what your children say they discovered online.
Take magazines you’ve already read to your doctors’ waiting rooms for others to enjoy. Do not tear off the mailing label … “because if someone wants to contact me that would be nice.”
Mullaney’s family says its beloved matriarch adhered to the time-old practice of writing letters to “communicate with everybody from every walk of life.”
To end their tribute to Mullaney, her family listed her survivors, “those whose photos she would share with prospective friends in the checkout line, and her children and grandchildren,” and whom she will join in heaven, “her favorite dance and political debate partner, her husband Dr. Gerald L. Mullaney.”

President Barack Hussein Obama is spiraling downward even in left-leaning polls.
John 8:32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
Item #1 of 3
A day before the president appeals to the American people in a prime time address to support military action against Syria, the CNN survey shows that 51% of the public says that Obama is honest and trustworthy, with 49% disagreeing.
After a decade of war in the Middle East, the poll now shows that nearly two-thirds of the public say the U.S. should be very reluctant to use military force around the world.
Obama’s speech and his administration’s aggressive lobbying effort to get support is the focus of Crossfire, which debuts at 6:30 p.m. ET on CNN. Crossfire guests will be Sen. Bob Menendez, a strong supporter of Obama’s efforts, and Sen. Rand Paul, who has been firmly against military action in Syria.
Item #2 of 3
President Barack Obama’s approval rating on foreign policy has hit the lowest mark of his presidency, a new CNN/ORC International poll shows.
A day before the president takes his case for military action against Syria to the American people, the poll shows that only 40% of those surveyed approve of Obama’s performance on foreign policy. That number has declined over the course of the year, from 54% in January. Only three in 10 approve of how Obama is handling the crisis in Syria, the poll indicates, and 63% disapprove.
The poll also shows that the proportion of Americans who approve of Obama’s overall performance is holding steady at 45%, the same rating as in CNN’s last poll on the subject in June.
Item #3 of 3
A new national survey shows President Barack Obama is swimming against a strong tide of public opinion as he presses his case for a U.S. military strike in Syria.
Nearly six in 10 Americans think Congress should not authorize limited military action in Syria, with roughly seven in 10 saying that air strikes against Syria would not achieve any significant goals for the U.S. and that the U.S. does not have any national interest in Syria.
If Congress authorizes military action against Syria, a 55% majority would still oppose air strikes against Syrian military targets — and if Congress does not do so, opposition to U.S. air strikes rises to 71%.
The CNN/ORC International poll surveyed 1,022 adult Americans on September 6-8. The margin of error is +/- 3%.
CNN Breaking News – September 9, 2013
Calvin’s Commentary: There is nothing conservative about CNN. I always refer to them as the Communist News Network. Only MSNBC and Al Jazeera America TV (which is the old failed Al Gore Current TV station that Gore sold to Islamic Muslims supported by Mullahs and Big Oil Terrorists but refused to sell to a 100% genuine American-owned TV broadcaster) is two of the more communist leaning networks than CNN, so the poll reflected below would never parrot anything but the most favorable image of their friend and ally. Even in the CNN poll, 49% believe the current president Obama is liar! And if they polled about Secretary of State Kerry, it would probably be an even higher percentage who believe that he is a liar. ▬ Donna Calvin ▬ Monday, September 9, 2013

An Iranian strategic expert has warned that one of President Obama’s daughters will be kidnapped and raped if America attacks Syria.
Alireza Forghani, also the former governor of southern Iran’s Kish Province, warned of mass abductions and killings of American citizens worldwide in the event the Obama administration launches a military strike in Syria.
‘Hopefully Obama will be pigheaded enough to attack Syria, and then we will see the … loss of U.S. interests [through terrorist attacks],’ he threatened.
‘In just 21 hours [after the attack on Syria], a family member of every U.S. minister [department secretary], U.S. ambassadors, U.S. military commanders around the world will be abducted. And then 18 hours later, videos of their amputation will be spread [around the world]’ he said reportedThe Daily Caller.
The American embassy in Baghdad was a likely target, according to unnamed U.S. officials quoted by the Wall Street Journal.
The Journal said the officials did not describe the range of potential targets indicated by the intelligence.
In addition, the State Department issued a warning on Thursday telling U.S. citizens to avoid all but ‘essential’ travel to Iraq.
President Barack Obama has asked the U.S. Congress to back his plan for limited strikes in response to a chemical weapons attack on civilians that the United States blames on Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s forces.
The Journal reported that the Iranian message was intercepted in recent days and came from the head of the Revolutionary Guards’ Qods Force.
The newspaper said the message went to Iranian-supported Shi’ite militia groups in Iraq.
The Journal reported that the message informed Shi’ite groups to be prepared to respond with force after any U.S. military strike on Syria.
‘Travel within Iraq remains dangerous given the security situation,’ according to the State Department’s warning, which replaced an earlier one ‘to update information on security incidents and to remind U.S. citizens of ongoing security concerns in Iraq, including kidnapping and terrorist violence.’
The department said that numerous insurgent groups, including al Qaeda’s Iraq affiliate, remain active and ‘terrorist activity and sectarian violence persist in many areas of the country at levels unseen since 2008.’
It added: ‘The ability of the embassy to respond to situations in which U.S. citizens face difficulty, including arrests, is extremely limited.’
The State Department declined immediate comment. The CIA declined comment.
The US and France are so far the only nations attending the G20 to have backed the use of military force against the Assad regime, with Russia and China insisting that any action in the absence of UN Security Council approval would be illegal.
Italian Prime Minister Enrico Letta – who also attended this morning’s aid meeting – said in a tweet last night that ‘the G20 has just now finished the dinner session, at which the divisions about Syria were confirmed’.
US frustrations over Russia’s stance were reflected in comments by the American envoy to the UN, Samantha Power, who told a New York news conference: ‘Even in the wake of the flagrant shattering of the international norm against chemical weapons use, Russia continues to hold the (Security) Council hostage and shirk its international responsibilities.
‘What we have learned, what the Syrian people have learned, is that the Security Council the world needs to deal with this crisis is not the Security Council we have.’
The US Government accuses Assad’s forces of killing 1,429 people in a poison-gas attack in a suburb of the Syrian capital, Damascus, on August 21.
Britain announced yesterday that scientists at the Porton Down research laboratories have found traces of the nerve gas sarin on cloth and soil samples retrieved from the site of the attack.
Meanwhile, there were signs that Mr Obama may struggle to secure support in Congress for his proposal of ‘limited and proportionate’ military action against Assad.
A poll commissioned by the BBC and ABC News suggested more than one-third of Congress members were undecided whether or not to back military action, while a majority of those who had made a decision said they would vote against the President.
The survey found that 226 members of the House of Representatives said they would oppose or were likely to oppose military action, against 45 who were certain or likely to support it and 189 who were undecided or did not respond.
Some 17 members of the Senate were certain or likely to oppose Mr Obama’s plans, against 23 certain or likely to back him and 60 whose position was undecided or unknown.
