  • The Muslim Plan to Take over America From the Inside

    One of the first things our nation’s founders did was to establish schools and colleges. They believed that in order to pass the founding ideals to future generations, they needed institutions of higher learning to do it. For example, those who conceived and built Harvard wanted their ideological legacy to continue: “One of the next things we longed for, and looked after was to advance Learning and perpetuate it to Posterity; dreading to leave an illiterate Ministry to the Churches, when our present Ministers shall lie in the Dust.” Why an educated ministry? Ministers were often the only source of...

    A mysterious blob of frozen soil, rocks and trees is creeping toward the Dalton Highway, threatening to block the haul road that serves as a lifeline for Alaska's oil and gas industry. It could happen as soon as end of the decade. University of Alaska Fairbanks researchers who have been studying the slow-moving landslide just south of the Brooks Range since 2008 say it is crawling closer to the highway every day. The scientists suspect climate change may have caused the 300-foot-wide finger of debris -- once thought to be motionless -- to gain speed as it slides toward the...

    'Medals belonging to an unsung war hero who saved countless lives by defusing 200 bombs in 60 days are expected to fetch £25,000 when they go under the hammer at auction this week. The incredible story of how Squadron Leader Wilson Charlton showed nerves of steel and 'unfailing courage' in his death-defying work, which saw him deal with an average of three live bombs a day, came to light after his George Cross and five other medals were put up for sale. The RAF bomb disposal expert was awarded the prestigious George Cross after working tirelessly day and night to...

    Mere Conservatism is a series highlighting the foundational writings that define American conservatism. I hope this series helps the American people to understand the beauty and philosophical essentials of conservatism. I use the term Mere Conservatism because conservatism defines a broad range of beliefs and is not a narrow ideology.

    One of our cats (LT - short for Little Thing) got out the other night while taking out the dogs. She is a very special cat and we have spent a lot of time trying to find her. Please pray for her safe return. If those on the kitty ping list have any suggestions that may lead her back home, I would appreciate it. We leave the garage door slightly up at night with food hoping she'll find her way. Picture below.

    Creators Syndicate ^ | December 4, 2012 | Thomas Sowell
    Amid all the political and media hoopla about the "fiscal cliff" crisis, there are a few facts that are worth noting. First of all, despite all the melodrama about raising taxes on "the rich," even if that is done it will scarcely make a dent in the government's financial problems. Raising the tax rates on everybody in the top two percent will not get enough additional tax revenue to run the government for ten days. And what will the government do to pay for the other 355 days in the year? All the political angst and moral melodrama about getting...

    Researchers at the University of Waterloo, Canada, have built the world’s most sophisticated artificial brain to date. Known as ‘Spaun’, (short for Semantic Pointer Architecture Unified Network), the model is able to simulate complex brain behaviour and is capable of thinking remembering, seeing and interacting with its environment using a mechanical arm. Although Spaun currently exists in the simulated world inside a computer, it is one of the most advanced models ever created by scientists to understand how the human brain functions. Unlike previous brain models, such as the 'million processor computer', which feature large networks of neurons with generally...

    DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) - The U.N.'s top telecommunications overseer sought Monday to quell worries about greater Internet controls emerging from global talks in Dubai, but any attempts for major Web regulations will likely face stiff opposition from groups led by a high-powered U.S. delegation. The 11-day conference, seeking to update codes last reviewed when the Web was virtually unknown, highlights the fundamental shift from tightly managed telecommunications networks to the borderless sweep of the Internet.

    One of the big advantages that President Obama has, as he plays "chicken" with the Congressional Republicans along the "fiscal cliff," is that Obama is a master of the plausible lie, which will never be exposed by the mainstream media— nor, apparently, by the Republicans. A key lie that has been repeated over and over, largely unanswered, is that President Bush's "tax cuts for the rich" cost the government so much lost tax revenue that this added to the budget deficit— so that the government cannot afford to allow the cost of letting the Bush tax rates continue for "the...

    Savita Halappanavar was 17 weeks pregnant while in Ireland with her husband. After being hospitalized at the University Hospital Galway, doctors determined that she was miscarrying her child and had a serious blood disorder called septicemia. As most people have heard by now, her story tragically ended on October 28. When Savita died, the world was unprepared for what was about to unfold. Her story spread like wildfire. But what spread so quickly was a twisted version of her story. Here are the top three things you should know about what happened. 1. Abortion would not have saved Savita’s life....

    Catholic World Report ^ | 12/2/12 | Douglas Bushman
    The main desire of the Council was to reinvigorate the Church’s mission of promoting a fully human life in Jesus Christ.As far as I know, no participant in the Second Vatican Council summed up its goals or described its spirit as addressing the question whether God’s truth and love are effective, that is, whether they have the power to steer men on a course conforming to their dignity. Nevertheless, the overarching question that the Council did address leads to this question. For the Council Fathers the question was: “Ecclesia, quid dicis de te ipsa? Church, what do you say about...
  • Norquist still calling cadence in GOP ranks (Lying RINOs Run for Cover)

    The Washington Post ^ | December 2, 2012 | Peter Wallsten
    At times, it has seemed that Republican lawmakers eyeing a fiscal compromise with President Obama were moving closer to a public split with Grover Norquist, author of the famous no-new- taxes pledge that has defined conservative politics for decades. Yet Norquist, whose influence in the conservative movement spans well beyond his well-known fixation on taxes, remains an unwavering force in the GOP debate — and even some of the most prominent lawmakers publicly flirting with a break from Norquist have assured him in private that they remain loyal soldiers in the anti-tax cause. Sen. Saxby Chambliss (R-Ga.), for example, might...

    The American Thinker ^ | 12-03-12 | Selwyn Duke
    Being just weeks away from reaching our debt ceiling and with frightening talk about a fiscal cliff, there's much sympathy in Washington for tax increases. Even conservatives are wavering. A few Republicans have dumped their anti-tax pledges, and former Nixon official-turned-actor Ben Stein favors taxing the wealthy. He says that we can't cut our way to a balanced budget and insists that the revenue end must be addressed. But I have news for him: he'll have a better chance finding Ferris Bueller on his day off than he will locating fiscal sanity through tax increases.

    Forbes ^ | November 29, 2012 | Morgan Brennan
    It was only a matter of time before a cash-flush investor bought the Broken O Ranch. Asking $132.5 million in cold hard cash, the 124,000 acre Montana farm is one of the largest agricultural operations in the Rocky Mountain West, offering an alluring investment opportunity to those bullish on soft commodities. Turns out one American billionaire agrees. Stanley Kroenke, a real estate mogul worth $4 billion by Forbes’ estimate, assumed ownership of Broken O Ranch on Tuesday for an undisclosed price. Kroenke, known for his ownership of sports teams like the NBA’s Denver Nuggets and the NFL’s St. Louis Rams,...
