  • Helen Thomas Should Be Dismissed From Hearst For Outrageous Comments On Israel

    White House correspondent and current Hearst Corporation columnist Helen Thomas told a documentary filmmaker at the White House that “Jews should go back to Poland…back to Germany…and America, and everywhere else.” The YouTube video, which can be viewed here, demonstrates an outrageous and complete lack of understanding of history. Thomas seems to have been schooled by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in a belief that Jews appeared in Israel after the Holocaust. Thomas ignores historical facts that Jews have called the Land of Israel home for more than 3,000 years, long before any other group made a home in the land....

    Helen Thomas, the dean of the White House press correspondents, embarrassed herself, her employer, and the journalism profession itself with her repugnant remarks that Jews should "get the hell out of Palestine." Thomas was present on the sidelines of the White House Jewish Heritage Day event on May 27, when she was asked her opinion of Israel by Rabbi David Nesenof. When pressed on the matter, she added that Palestine is a country of occupation, whose occupiers should leave the region, returning to "Poland, Germany and America and everywhere else". Thomas issued an apology on her website, writing “I deeply...

    In mid-May, Portland police Officer James Crooker went to Southeast Portland on a patrol call. With a few minutes to spare, he decided to get a coffee. So, he popped into the Red & Black cafe on Southeast 12th Avenue near Oak Street, bought a coffee and was heading out when a customer approached him, saying she appreciates the hard job that police officers do every day in Portland. One of the co-owners of the cafe, John Langley, has another point of view. While the officer and customer were chatting, he walked up and asked Crooker to leave, saying he...

    It isn't just the pro-Palestinian press that is attempting to distort the reality behind the recent flotilla incident off the coast of Gaza. Former Democratic Congresswoman, and 2008 Green Party candidate for President of the United States, Cynthia McKinney, has voiced her own version of reality through an anti-Israeli rant in Arab News. McKinney is of course, a reliable source on the topic, having been involved in her own little attempts at defying and breaking an Israeli blockade of Gaza (translation - aiding and abetting a terrorist regime). In her column for Arab News, McKinney expresses outrage over ‘Israel's needless,...
  • L.A. Teacher Rails against Police "Apes", "Occupied Mexico" (Gochez at it again)

    L.A. "teacher" Ron Gochez strikes again. Gochez, who for some unknown reason remains a teacher at Santee H.S. Complex in Los Angeles, is at it again in this video, railing against the police as "apes of repression", calls L.A. the "occupied territories of Mexico" and says he "represents" a "Mexican revolutionary organi...zation". He must teach one heck of a "history" class to young minds full of mush in L.A. This 2007 video adds to the prior footage of Gochez' racist, anti-Semitic and seditious rantings. If Gochez had been a Caucasian teacher who called for a white uprising against the U.S....

    VATICAN CITY - Pope Benedict XVI said Wednesday that he hoped a letter he plans to send to Irish Catholics about the child sex abuse scandal in the church would help with "repentance, healing and renewal" there. Benedict acknowledged the Irish church had been "severely shaken" as a result of the crisis and said he was "deeply concerned." However, speaking in English at his weekly general audience, the pontiff did not make any mention of the issue in his homeland, Germany. The scandal in Germany, where some 300 former Catholic students have come forward with claims of physical or sexual...

    Aegon insurance company has put aside a million euros to pay for claims by Dutch victims who suffered at the hands of Catholic clerics. Aegon and the archdiocese of Utrecht, which acted on behalf of the Roman Catholic church in the Netherlands, came to this agreement in 2006, an investigation by NRC Handelsblad and Radio Netherlands Worldwide has shown. If damages exceed a million euros, the Church will have to pay for them itself. Aegon broke with church after 45 years The deal ended a long-lasting dispute regarding the coverage offered by the church’s liability insurance policy with Aegon. The...

    Nation of Islam Minister Louis Farrakhan claims the "white right" is trying to make Barack Obama a one-term president. Speaking to an estimated 20,000 followers of the black nationalist movement at the United Center on Sunday, the 76-year-old Farrakhan said, "The white right is trying to set Barack up to be assassinated." Referring to a Southern Baptist preacher's recent prayer that the president die, Farrakhan said, "There are Christians praying for God to kill Obama." Obama distanced himself from Farrakhan before the presidential election because of Farrakhan's long history of anti-Semitic remarks. But in a 3½-hour Saviours' Day speech Sunday,...
  • CPAC Surprise: Ron Paul Wins 2010 CPAC Straw Poll

    Texas Representative Ron Paul won the 2010 CPAC straw poll tonight, beating out both Mitt Romney & Sarah Palin, and raking in 31% of the vote. Paul, a Libertarian who is perhaps best known for his aggressive stance against the Federal Reserve, has a dedicated group of followers which have again affirmed their influence within the Republican party. What this means for a 2012 bid for presidency is uncertain, however; Paul’s supporters were a vocal and visible group when he ran for President in 2008, but in the end, Paul walked away with only a small percentage of the actual...

    What sort of red-necked yahoo would use those words to compliment an African-American running for elective office? Perhaps an uneducated, uninformed, toothless bloke from, say, Alabama, Louisiana or other haven for bigots in the Deep South? Wrong! Actually, the "clean and articulate" compliment came from the unbridled mouth of Joe Biden, the same clown we now call Vice President. The "light-skinned and no negro dialect" dilly came from Harry Reid, Majority Leader of the US Senate, who recently had the audacity to warn that Republicans opposed to ObamaCare were of the same ilk as those scoundrels who opposed ending slavery...

    Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) apologized today for referring to President Barack Obama as "light skinned" and "with no Negro dialect" in private conversations during the 2008 presidential campaign. "I deeply regret using such a poor choice of words," said Reid in a statement. "I sincerely apologize for offending any and all Americans, especially African Americans for my improper comments." The Senate Majority Leader was officially neutral in the primary fight between Obama and then Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (N.Y.). Reid's remarks about Obama were revealed in "Game Change", a book detailing the 2008 race penned by Time's Mark...

    An atheist rapist has complained that his human rights were breached by having to share a prison cell with a Christian inmate. Barman Steven Relf, 40, was jailed indefinitely after admitting raping two women he targeted when he served them drinks in a pub. Police branded him a "sexual predator" and said he could have had as many as 40 victims. In a letter to an inmates' magazine, Relf wrote: "I recently had the displeasure of sharing a cell with a Bible-thumping believer."
  • Can Catholics Be Christians?

    I just came from a funeral service for an aunt of mine who was a staunch Catholic. I came out of that religion about 25 years ago after reading for myself what the Bible had to say. My question surrounds the actuality of salvation for all the millions who still practice Mary worship and so forth. Knowing that one cannot serve two masters, I wonder at how it is possible that the aforementioned can really experience Christ in a saving way, while they continue to believe that the church of Rome is solely responsible for their eternal welfare.
