Afghan bride sold for 30 goats executed for non-performance



In America, if you're a young woman and your parents disapprove of your boyfriend, you'll probably marry him anyway. But in Afghanistan, it happens a little differently, maybe even something like this:

1) Your parents will force you into an arranged marriage.

2) They will sell you for something like 30 goats, and even some cows, if you look sexy in a burka.

3) If you instead elope with your boyfriend, your family will hunt you down to try and kill you.

4) If you go to the police for help, the police will arrest you for adultery.

5) When a mob comes to the police station to demand your release, the police will hand them over to you.

6) Your family members will execute you for having shamed them, since they received all these lovely goats and you refused to let a strange man rape you.

An armed mob that included relatives of a young woman who had eloped with her lover stormed a police station holding the couple in eastern Afghanistan over the weekend, then dragged the lovers off and killed them, officials and witnesses said.

The woman, Fatiha, 18, was described as having been married against her will and eloping instead with a young man.... But on Saturday the police caught and arrested the couple on suspicion of adultery.

Salam Khan, 22, a witness from Fatiha’s village, Sar-i-Pul, said he saw what had happened to the couple after the police surrendered them. “Some of Fatiha’s relatives, her cousins, were beating her with their fists and saying, ‘Why did you do this?’ Then her older brother got angry and shot her with a hunting rifle and her younger brother shot her with an AK-47.

It is common in many parts of rural Afghanistan for fathers to marry off their daughters without the daughter’s consent, even though both Afghan civil law and Islamic Shariah law [really?] require such consent.

The authorities, however, often side with the families, and honor killings in cases where the girl refuses the marriage are common, although rarely publicized.

This case came to attention because of the notoriety surrounding it and what Ms. Nuristani said was a high bride price paid to the girl’s father, reputedly 30 goats and seven cows.

As of Monday in the Nuristan case, no one had been charged or arrested in the fatal shootings of the couple....

The article went on to say that this occurred an area under government control that also had Taliban sympathies. I think the entire Afghanistan is under government control, complete with Taliban sympathies, if you know what I mean.

This is what the people of Afghanistan are. This is not the exception, this is the rule. It's just like the recent story about the Pakistani mom who burned her daughter to death at her daughter's wedding reception. This culture is savage, brutal, inhuman.

Questions for discussion:

1) Why are American soldiers still fighting and dying for Afghanistan?

2) Why is America still admitting Afghan refugees who practice an evil 7th century culture where the murder of family members is celebrated?

High school graduation rates skyrocketing under New York's new "Fail-Pass" program


Public education works! The public school system is filled with an entire bureaucracy of caring teachers and educators, a slumbering anti-meritocracy dedicated to bringing a top level education to students everywhere, especially in the inner cities, as it has done for countless generations. Nowhere is that more apparent than in New York State, where students until recently had to pass five Regents exams to graduate. But by graduating students who failed several of the Regents exams, educators found that they were able to significantly boost graduation rates. What an innovation!

Federal workers planning sabotage of the Trump administration


Conservative talk show host Mark Levin is very fond of saying that when liberals win elections, they run the country, and when they lose elections, they also run the country. That's because liberals control much of the media, judiciary, and especially the bureaucracy regardless of who wins the election.

President Trump is going to issue a new executive order regarding entry restrictions after the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a temporary restraining order on his original temporary ban on entry from seven Muslim countries. There are many ways to redraft his EO, but I am going to focus on two of the smartest strategies.

Ivanka Trump vs Michelle Obama on Magazine Covers


We have a new first lady in town. And no I don't mean Melania Trump. It's clear that Ivanka Trump has become the de facto first lady, for publicity purposes. And we all know that a major role for first ladies is to grace the cover of magazines. Michelle Obama appeared on so many of them, that some people rushed to their ophthalmologist's office with eye strain. But Ivanka has already appeared on her share of covers too. So the important question arises, who is more charismatic in print?

Are you concerned that Neil Gorsuch belongs to a far-left church?


President Obama was criticized by Republicans, and rightly so I believe, for attending a church lead by Jeremiah Wright, who repeatedly criticized the United States for being, in his own opinion, an evil terrorist nation. People wondered, how could Obama sit through sermons like that, year after year? Didn't that mean that at the very least Obama didn't have any serious problems with what Wright was saying?

Which is better, a president who criticizes the police, or Nordstrom's?


President Trump is being criticized for making critical comments of Nordstrom's, which just dropped his daughter's product lines. Nordstrom claims they are dropping her products due to economic reasons, but it is a big coincidence that Nordstrom, TJ Maxx, Marshalls, and Neiman Marcus and other retailers are dropping Trump products just as President Trump took office. The fact is that Nordstrom's and other stores fears pressure from the Left for selling Trump branded products and so are proactively caving in to pressure. One wonders if President Obama had sold an Obama branded marijuana cigarette, if stores in California and Colorado would be as quick to drop his product line when he became president. Probably not.
