    Exclusive: Pamela Geller teaches reporters realities of effort to establish 'victory' facility “It’s all pray and no play,” said the New York Post on Sunday. “The Islamic cultural center near Ground Zero that opened with great fanfare a year ago is now an empty space with no community programs. And while the developers behind Park51 insisted for two years that the project was more than a mosque, it now appears to be just that. Dozens of worshipers gather at the site on Park Place Friday for prayer services – but that’s the only activity in the building.” The New York...

    Q.Whats the difference between the Michigan Legislature and the U.S. Legislature? A.The Michigan legislators read their bills before they pass them. So they were aware that by passing the Right to Work bill they were granting employees the choice to opt out of union membership.Since that makes the payment of union dues likewise optional,they realized that it would likely upset some of Michigans unions. Proud member of the Michigan Teachers Union poses in front of a giant ratwhoops!Somebody spelled Governor SNyders name wrong!Thank a teacher.

    Just as one Democrat from Queens is getting out of prison another one is getting locked up. Former New York comptroller Alan Hevisi was released this morning after serving 20 months in the big house on a pay-to-play conviction for steering $250 million of state pension fund business in exchange for $1 million of improper benefits including campaign contributions as reported by Erik Kriss for the New York Post: "he will return to his familys home in Forest Hills, Queens." Meanwhile, former state senator Hiram Monserrate from Queens was sentenced yesterday "to two years in the slammer for looting nearly...

    When is genocide not genocide? When it calls for the annihilation of the Jews. And genocide is certainly not genocide when it's Islamic. Obama say, "respect it!" More moral depravity from the leftist/Islamic alliance.

Bonn bomb "Bonn bomb scare cops 'hunting Salafists,'" from The Local, December 11 (thanks to Steve) German security officials on Tuesday said one man had been arrested amid a police investigation into a Salafist terrorist connection to a suspected explosive device found at the Bonn train station.

    The Jewish Press ^ | December 11, 2012 | By Yori Yanover
    The Defense Security Cooperation Agency has notified Congress that it intends to sell Israel some 6,900 tail kits which can turn "dumb" bombs into satellite-guided "smart bombs," including bombs capable of penetrating hardened targets, Bloomberg Business Week reported. Some of the hardened targets one would immediately think about are those underground nuclear plants the Iranian government has been so chatty about this past decade or so. According to BBW, the sale will includes 1,725 all-weather satellite-guided Joint Direct Attack Munition, or JDAM tail kits with BLU-109 bombs, which are 2,000-pound, hard-target penetrators. Bombs delivered this way are among the most...

    Last Friday, the U.S. Supreme Court agreed for the first time to take on the issue of gay marriage. No matter how it rules in the two cases it will hear next spring, polling data suggest it is only a matter of time before legal recognition of same-sex unions is the norm throughout the country. Something similar is happening with marijuana, which became legal in Washington last week and in Colorado on Monday. With both pot and gay marriage, familiarity is breeding tolerance. The cases before the Supreme Court deal with popular reactions against gay marriage: the Defense of Marriage...

    Why is Obama arming the enemies of freedom? This cat is dangerous and scary. Why the support of Islamic revolutions whose stated goal is sharia and a universal caliphate?

    American Rattlesnake ^ | December 11, 2012 | Gerard Perry
    One of the themes weve emphasized on American Rattlesnake this year is the damage inflicted upon American society by ill-conceived policies of refugee resettlement carried out by the federal government. Unlike past generations of refugees who came here from nations behind the Iron Curtain, Cuba, or other Communist states, the ones transplanted to the United States now are not educated, white collar elites or aspiring middle class professionals who have been dispossessed of their property and wealth by tyrannical despots. Unlike the much-maligned Polish plumbers who have migrated to the United Kingdom in order to increase their earnings before returning...

    As several places (1) (2) are scheming against your hard earned retirement, the roots of this unsurprisingly go back to American academia. But where does that lead? The war on your 401k seems rooted in the ideas of a Teresa Ghilarducci, of The New School for Social Research.(NSSR) According to the NSSR's home page, it is her idea: "Teresa Ghilarducci, an economist at The New School for Social Research, has won attention among lawmakers nationwide for her tough stance against 401(k)s" This goes back to 2008 and probably before, but it's who makes it prominent that gets the credit.

    Do you think this will have no consequences? Do you think there will be no fallout from this? Think about what Britain will be like in ten years, twenty years, fifty years -- and what an Islamic Republic of Britain would think about a United States still ruled by kuffar. A horrible and wild new reality. See the data here. Christianity is fading away in Britain as Islam surges and agnosticism spreads Telegraph December 11th, 2012 The shape of things to come Poor Rowan Williams: wrong to the end.

  • Total: Oil Production to Peak at 98M Barrels per Day

    Dow Jones via Rig Zone ^ | December 11, 2012 | Geraldine Amiel
    New discoveries and technological advances have increased the oil industry's ability to increase production in recent years, pushing global maximum oil production to 98 million barrels per day for longer than initially expected, Total SA's Chairman and Chief Executive Christophe de Margerie said Tuesday. Global oil production should plateau at that level for some time before dropping as reserves gradually deplete, de Margerie said during a meeting with the Anglo-American Press Association in Paris. Technological constraints led the French oil major to estimate in 2007 that the "peak oil" production rate would be at around 95 million barrels per day,...

    Following the lead set by Dana Loesch for raising money to ID the union thug that sucker punched Stephen Crowder, I recommend we create a REWARD FUND to collect donations from conservatives that will be immediately donated to any newly elected CONSERVATIVE Speaker of the House. Imagine IF we placed $100,000 (or more) into an escrow fund, only to be rewarded to any truly Conservative Speaker's PAC, otherwise ALL donated funds would be returned to ORIGINAL contributors. We could consider this new campaign a Christmas present to ourselves.

    French report cites fighters from 'Army of Muhammad' While the Obama administration reportedly is moving toward recognizing the recently formed and supposedly inclusive Syrian National Coalition as the legitimate representative of the Syrian people, recent reports from in and around the embattled Syrian city of Aleppo make clear that Syrian rebel forces on the ground consist virtually exclusively of jihadists, including self-avowed veterans of the al-Qaida-led insurgency against American forces in Iraq. Thus, in a report that appeared last week in the French leftist daily Libration, correspondent Jean-Pierre Perrin describes visiting with one of the rebel militias that have infiltrated...

    WASHINGTON - Did you see the story about Costco borrowing $3.5 billion to pay a special $7 a share dividend to its stockholders before year's end to avoid being hit by President Obama's higher tax on investors? What makes this story especially juicy is that it reveals how Obama's fat cat supporters, who bankrolled his bid for a second term and embraced his proposed tax increases, have taken steps to shield themselves from the president's "tax the rich" fiscal folly. The tax avoidance maneuver, which Forbes magazine calls "a six-year advance on the company's current annual dividend of $1.10 per...

    Fool’s Gold?

When I first raised these points (along with thousands of other sites) in late 2006, we were all of us consigned by the commentariat of the day to those Outer Limits reserved for The Loonies.Since that time, we have seen the mysteriously dramatic rise...
