    [BIG SNIP]The Quakers’[new penitentiary system using isolation]experiment revealed that the consultation of one’s inner self without outside reference or constraints, with nothing to measure one’s self against, could produce distorted human beings who became certifiably mad. Self-proclaimed gods can turn out to be a Caligula or a Jim Jones.Just as bad as the fact consulting the inner light can result in the exhibition of mad or corrupt behavior is the fact that the newly minted gods believe themselves to be entitled to demand obeisance from us mere mortals.We mere everyday humans must bow down and worship the deities among us....
  • Americans 'overreacted' to 9/11 terror attacks because they're not as resilient as Brits

    Americans ‘overreacted’ to the 9/11 attacks, according to the newly appointed first female vice-chancellor of Oxford University. Terrorism expert Professor Louise Richardson said the 2001 atrocity provoked such a response because violent extremism was a ‘new experience’ in the US. Widespread panic ensued in America after al-Qaeda hijacked four passenger airliners and flew them into buildings, causing almost 3,000 deaths. In contrast, British citizens have shown themselves to be more ‘resilient’ in the face of terror when dealing with violence during the Troubles in Northern Ireland, she said.

    These are not good times for the Republic (and if you laughed or scratched your head at me calling America a republic, I rest my case). But they are amusing times, at least for those of us capable of extracting some measure of mirth and schadenfreude from the president’s predicament. With the sand running out on the Obama presidency, it’s finally dawning on the president’s friends and fans that he can be a real jerk. Consider the Washington Post’s Dana Milbank. For the last six years, he’s spent much of his time rolling his eyes and sneering at Republicans. His...

    Apple has made it clear that it believes in global warming, and that it wants to fix what it regards as a problem. But should the company tone down its rhetoric on the issue? Under the leadership of Tim Cook, Apple has been a vocal advocate for certain policies, including what the company calls "climate change." While some have applauded Apple's commitment to battle global warming, I'm forced to wonder if the company's efforts aren't simply misguided. Don't get me wrong, I think it's great that Apple is paying attention to the environment and that it's aware of its own...

A pollster asks: "What do you think about the level of ignorance and apathy in the country?" The person replies: "I don't know and I don't care." Each week, Jesse Watters of Fox News interviews mostly young people about politics, government, current events and history. He claims their displays of ignorance are not edited. The worst part is that the interviewees don't seem to care that they know little about their government and country. In a recent episode, interviewees...

    “Convenience.” “Convenience.” “Convenience.” “Convenience.” Hillary Clinton’s reliance on that word during her news conference at the United Nations on Tuesday minimized the exemption from standard procedure that she allowed herself when she decided — all on her own — to use only a private email address for both personal and government business. She told reporters that she hadn’t wanted to be weighed down by a second electronic device. It wasn’t secrecy that motivated her. It was purse space and pinkie strain. And behind her forced smile, which was practically cemented in place, she seemed put out by all the skepticism...

    Probably the most well-known preacher in England in the 1800s was Charles Spurgeon. My favorite quote from him is a nine-word sentence on humility. He said, "Be not proud of race, face, place or grace." I do not think that he was saying that we shouldn't have self-respect or self-esteem in each of these areas. However, there is no place for followers of the Lord to be arrogant in these areas. First, we should not be arrogant of race by thinking that one race is superior to any other race. God is the creator of all. By observing his creation...

    In the week following the shellacking of his party in the midterm elections, one might think that President Barack Obama would be conciliatory and humble. Instead, he has continued to be audacious -- but with arrogance rather than hope. The day after the elections, during a White House news conference, Obama said this in response to a reporter's questions about the possibility of changing focus based on the mid-term election results: "The key is to find areas where the agenda that I've put forward, one that I believe will help strengthen the middle class and create more ladders of opportunity...

Such a person has gone from being a leader to a controller. Any president justifying his actions on what he alone decides is "right" for the nation has turned the constitutional republic upside down.

This planned disruption of the normal Public School year was timed to disrupt the Fall Election Campaign, on a number of different topics, not the least of which is to provide a major distraction to numerous Obama scandals, mismanagement, and the total six year failure of the Democrat Party's Obama as a leader, both Foreign and Domestic.

A humble 34 percent of citizens say they are about as smart as everyone else, while a dispirited 4 percent say they are less intelligent than most people. Men (24 percent) are more likely...

    During the Obama years, a potent mythology has taken root in Democratic circles. In this narrative, Democrats are victims, martyrs even, whereas Republicans are wily tricksters. Last year, there was a hyped-up fable about Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell. President Barack Obama told "60 Minutes," "When I first came into office, the head of the Senate Republicans said, 'My No. 1 priority is making sure President Obama's a one-term president.'" Sen. Dianne Feinstein even told the San Francisco Chronicle's editorial board she heard McConnell speaking to that effect on the Senate's opening day. The thing is that the quote...

    DOCTRINE OF CRIMINALITY The criminal is an irresponsible person. All criminality is the product of human volition. Criminals are not criminals because of their environment, but because of the function of their volition in relationship to the trends of the old sin nature. Irresponsibility is a basic characteristic of the criminal-type person.The criminal is not a mature person because he does not take the responsibility for his own decisions in life. Therefore, criminality is characterized by irresponsibility and childishness. The criminal is not responsible, answerable, or accountable to any authority in life.Therefore, the criminal lives in a state of self-fragmentation...

    "...If a Republican member of Congress is not punished on Fox News or by Rush Limbaugh for working with a Democrat on a bill of common interest, then you'll see more of them doing it," [President Obama] said.

    Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Wednesday that the misinformation that came out about the Benghazi attacks in their immediate aftermath no longer mattered, saying that the important thing was to find the persons responsible. Clinton had a heated exchange with Sen. Ron Johnson during a hearing of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee when he questioned her about the initial reports on the motives behind the attacks on the U.S. Embassy that left four Americans dead. Initially, UN Ambassador Susan Rice blamed the attacks on protests over an anti-Muslim video when she appeared on the Sunday shows, apparently speaking...
  • Noonan: When Americans Saw the Real Obama

    Why was the first debate so toxic for the president? Because the one thing he couldn't do if he was going to win the election is let all the pent-up resentment toward him erupt. Americans had gotten used to him as The President. Whatever his policy choices, whatever general direction he seemed to put in place he was The President, a man who had gotten there through natural gifts and what all politicians need, good fortune. What he couldn't do was present himself, when everyone was looking, as smaller than you thought. Petulant, put upon, above it all, full of...

    During Monday night’s debate nearly 60 million of us got a good look at why Barack Obama has not been able to accomplish anything in four years. It’s his patronizing, me-me personality. Did you see how condescending he was toward Mitt Romney, not to mention downright rude at times? Obama’s more-presidential-than-thou attitude, which he did little to hide or dial back at the debate, should have reminded us of what happened in the first two weeks of his administration. Remember when he met with congressional leaders and said he wanted to come up with a bipartisan solution for the country’s...
  • Obama: I Don't Want To Lose, Not For Me But For What It Would Mean To Country

    Everybody knows what a humble, self-effacing guy Barack Obama is. So not that we needed any proof, but just check out what President Obma let us members of his campaign email list know in a message he just sent out: "I don't want to lose this election. Not because of what losing would mean for me -- Michelle and I will be fine no matter what happens. But because of what it would mean for our country and middle-class families." More after the jump.
  • Former Obama Aide: The President “Doesn’t Like People”

    Do we have a misanthrope as president? According to a former aide to Barack Obama, Neera Tanden, the answer may be yes. Her comments were made when discussing the relationship between Obama and Bill Clinton and were reported by New York magazine, which wrote: “People say the reason Obama wouldn’t call Clinton is because he doesn’t like him,” observes Tanden. “The truth is, Obama doesn’t call anyone, and he’s not close to almost anyone. It’s stunning that he’s in politics, because he really doesn’t like people. My analogy is that it’s like becoming Bill Gates without liking computers.” I must...
  • Obama's Old-World Arrogance

    When President Obama came to the U.N. General Assembly on September 25, his arrogance was on full display. He skipped meeting any world leaders, but did find time to sit down and talk about his lover moves on ABC's "The View." Topics included how he's a "romantic husband," how he "tucks in" his wife at night and how his first kiss with Michelle is now memorialized by a monument in Chicago. Meanwhile, Israel is preparing for war against a soon-to-be-nuclear Iran. Yawn. Obama also skipped the traditional luncheon, leaving U.N. Secretary General Ban-Ki Moon looking like "a jilted prom date,"...

    Michelle Obama spoke with the Tom Joyner Morning Show about the things people can do to get out the vote for her husband, and actually offered a rather insulting portrait of those who are undecided -- as well as inaccurately portraying the race as between grassroots Democrats and a handful of rich Republicans. The most damning passage: "All of us know that one person in our lives -- that one knucklehead nephew that's not registered to vote. That one neighbor who's not really paying attention. That one coworker who's confused about how Barack's tax plan will benefit that individual. Those...
