Real War on Women: Hundreds of Yazidi women held in ISIS prison where they are held as Sex Slaves or sold off as Jihadi brides for as little as $25

Why are we hearing any outrage from American women’s groups denouncing ISIS.  Oh, I forgot they only bitch about the GOP. 

Daily Mail reports hundreds of Yazidi women being held prisoner by Islamic State fighters in Iraq are being sold off as brides for as little as $25 or repeatedly raped if they refuse, it has been claimed.

Survivors have told how beauticians were brought in to put makeup on the women before they were attacked, and said some victims were forced to call their families after to explain what had happened.

According to those who escaped Badush Prison, in Mosul, northern Iraq, the number of women held there could be in the thousands and include Christians and Turkomens - a largely Muslim group closely related to the Turks.

Obama: We don’t have a strategy on how to fight ISIS then off to more fund raisers

Obama doesn’t have a strategy on how to be president either! 

Daily Beast reports after lots of bluster about striking ISIS on Syria, President Obama threw cold water on the idea Thursday, disappointing those who wanted him to take the fight to ISIS in Syria.

After a week of talk of eliminating the "cancer" of ISIS, President Obama said Thursday that he was not planning to significantly expand the war against the Islamic extremist movement anytime soon.

His remarks came after days of heated debate inside the top levels of his own national security bureaucracy about how, where, and whether to strike ISIS in Syria. But those deliberations – which included a bleak intelligence assessment of America's potential allies in Syria -- failed to produce a consensus battle plan. And so Obama, who has long been reluctant to enter into the Syrian conflict, told reporters Thursday that “we don’t have a strategy yet” for confronting ISIS on a regional level.

Those inside the administration advocating for going after ISIS in both Iraq and Syria were sorely disappointed – and lamented their boss's lack of urgency in rooting out a threat that only days before was being described in near-apocalyptic terms.

Remembering Jahn’s in Richmond Hill

Jahn’s in Richmond Hill on Hillside Avenue just north of Myrtle was an old fashion ice cream parlor/restaurant straight out of the 1950s.  It was the spot to go to after my high school had their annual Sing competition between the seniors, juniors, sophomore and freshen classes. 

Sadly it closed in 2007.  What I didn’t know until today after doing some research was that Jahn’s was a thriving family business that started in 1897 with a parlor located at 138th Street and Alexander Avenue in the Mott Haven section of the Bronx.

By 1918, founder John Jahn took off for 5 years and let his children, Elsie, Frank, and Howard mind the store. Later, he opened three more restaurants: one for Elsie in Jamaica, one for Frank in Richmond Hill, and one for Howard in Bayside & Flushing.

And I thought there was the only one in Richmond Hill. 

I also remember the menu at Jahn’s such as  the huge Kitchen Sink Sundae, other popular ice cream treats included the Boilermaker, the Awful Awful, the Suicide Frappe', Screwball's Delight, the Joe Sent Me and the (#”&’$?/) Special. The "Flaming Desire" came to the table with an alcohol soaked sugar cube on fire and five scoops of ice cream.

Great stuff! 

Too bad a family business with a 100 year old history couldn’t survive the Obama economy. 

Louisiana teacher Ashley Dowden, 41, at Riverdale Christian Academy fired after her arrest for having sex with two male students 18 and 16

The last thing a Christian school needs is this hot Cajun dipping her stuff where it doesn’t belong.
Shrevepor Times reports Riverdale Christian Academy administrators have fired English teacher Ashley Dowden following her confession to deputies that she had sex with a 16-year-old student.

The Rev. Preston Thompson said Dowden originally was placed on administrative leave following her arrest Friday.

Dowden was arrested after admitting that she had sex with a 16-year-old boy and had exchanged nude photos and explicit text messages with him, according to an affidavit of probable cause.

When school officials learned Dowden admitted to deputies that she had sex with the student, they fired her, Thompson said. The move is retroactive to Aug. 21, he said.
The firing came before sheriff's deputies issued Dowden a misdemeanor summons Tuesday for inappropriate conduct between a teacher and student following an 18-year-old student's allegations that she went to his house in April during her lunch break and had sex with him.
