  • Watch: Pro-Abortion Activist Says Pro-life Women Are 'Deluded'

    Townhall ^ | March 15, 2016 | Cortney O'Brien
    Texas's pro-life House Bill 2, which heavily regulates abortion clinics, made its way to the Supreme Court last week. So did pro-abortion activists. Carrying crude signs and wearing uterus costumes, the demonstrators made their presence known. Even more offensive than their costumes, however, was their inability to name an instance when abortion should be illegal. MRCTV’s Dan Joseph was stunned the protesters could not answer this simple question. The clip includes many head-shaking moments, including when the young woman dressed as the uterus refused to answer the question and punted an answer to "the medical professionals." Yet, the most interesting/infuriating...

    China and other countries want to sell me goods at a cheap price. Trump wants to put a stop to that in order to appease the visible victim, the angry unemployed widget worker. The invisible victims are much greater in number and any tariff or "fair trade" is awful for them. Who in their right mind complains when something is getting sold at a cheap price? It is time to put America first and stop Trump from increasing the price Americans pay for foreign goods.

    Alright people, we need to get it together. I say this because ‘Kid Warrior’ — the ‘Anti-Justin Bieber‘ — just gained major ground in being our Nation’s coolest teenager, and it’s because this 15 year-old eco-hip-hop artist/activist just teamed up with 20 other youths to sue our Federal Government for fossil fuel exploitation. His name is Xiuhtezcatl Martinez and he’s been owning the podium lately, demanding our government to reduce CO2 emissions. He also accuses our federal government of being responsible for allowing our nation’s climate system to be destroyed.

    Americans believe that there are six times as many gays and lesbians in the population as there actually are, according to new data released by Gallup. According to Gallup’s tracking surveys in the first four of 2015, 3.8 percent of the U.S. adult population says they are lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender. However, in a survey conducted May 6-10, Gallup asked: “Just your best guess, what percent of Americans today would you say are gay or lesbian?” On average, Americans said it was 23.2 percent. …

    A University of Saskatchewan student has gotten several bars to take down washroom signs, saying they promote "violence against women" and that the response to her initial concerns was a "very typical misogynistic, patriarchal response." The sign in question, which was up at a Canadian Brewhouse, is meant to portray a blue, male stick figure looking at a pink, female stick figure. It is meant to be funny and show that men like to look at women. Not so says Reanne Risdale, who is 29. Instead, she sees the sign as threatening to women, insensitive, and referenced Bill Cosby when...

    Despite the president's low approval ratings, and the continuing cacophony of hate directed toward him by Republicans and racists, any reasonable assessment of Barack Obama's accomplishments to date would conclude that his presidency could well go down as a time of historic achievement. The Affordable Care Act, the Lilly Ledbetter Act, the Dodd-Frank Financial Regulation Bill -- the largest since the New Deal -- and his economic policies bolstered by yeoman's work of the Federal Reserve, place Obama solidly in the company of presidents like FDR and LBJ. Despite widespread Republican disinformation about and unrelenting opposition to the Affordable Care...

    Elian Gonzalez, the focus of a bitter international custody dispute after he was rescued at sea as a child, left Cuba on Friday for the first time since 2000, when the U.S. government returned him to the island. Gonzalez, who also turned 20 on Friday, traveled to Quito, Ecuador, as part of a 200-member Cuban delegation to a weeklong youth conference there. "Fidel Castro for me is like a father," Gonzalez said in the recent interview. "I don't profess to have any religion but if I did my God would be Fidel Castro. He is like a ship that knew...

    Every so often the wonks of wishful thinking give us an article about how blacks are becoming Republicans, how Hispanics are supposedly a natural GOP constituency, or, as is the subject here today, how the millennial generation is turning "conservative." Perhaps pundits asserting the last thing recall Winston Churchill's observation, "If you're not a liberal at 20, you have no heart; if you're not a conservative at 40, you have no brain." And perhaps they overlook that it's possible to raise a brainless generation. Don't think, as one might, that this will be a typical analysis sneering at the proverbial...

The al-Aqsa TV program broadcast in the Hamas-run Gaza Strip, translated by the MEMRI (Middle East Media Research Institute), featured the grandchildren of Umm Nidal, a former Hamas MP from Gaza who celebrated the deaths of her three sons who carried out suicide attacks against Israelis. Umm Nidal died in March in Gaza. Umm Nidal’s granddaughter said she...

    One of the engaging things about American politics is the sheer unpredictability that imbues the system with excitement. The Tea Party movement came seemingly out of nowhere and into our jargon. But it is worth examining, for it is making a difference in American politics. It began last summer with public meetings advocating lower taxes, more adherence to the constitution, and opposition to all things Obama. Since then it has disrupted town hall meetings, lost a safe N.Y. House seat, held a conference with a $500 attendance fee and a $100,000 speaking fee for Sarah Palin, and failed in Texas...

    People chuckled when presidential candidate Mitt Romney, a Mormon raised in Michigan and elected in Massachusetts, bungled the names of Cuban-American politicians during a recent speech in Miami. But when he mistakenly associated Fidel Castro's trademark speech-ending slogan -- Patria o muerte, venceremos! -- with a free Cuba, listeners didn't laugh. They winced. Castro has closed his speeches with the phrase -- in English, ''Fatherland or death, we shall overcome'' -- for decades.

The following quote is from an earlier article, “The Clash of Civilizations?” in Foreigns Affairs from the summer issue of 1993: “The interactions between civilizations vary greatly in the extent to which they are likely to be characterized by violence.

    My naive husband was brainwashed at mosques, says bomber's widow By Richard Alleyne (Filed: 24/09/2005) The widow of one of the July 7 suicide bombers believes that her "innocent and naive" husband was brainwashed into carrying out the attacks by extremists at the mosques where he worshipped. Samantha Lewthwaite, 21, described Jermaine Lindsay as a peace-loving father who was always deeply upset when innocent people suffered in war zones. But she said that just months before the attacks he became distant and moody and would spend days away from the family home after visiting mosques in London, Luton and the...

    Daughter of the revolution What is it like to be the child of someone whose image confronts us daily on the covers of books, posters, T-shirts - and now in The Motorcycle Diaries, played by an actor? Aleida Guevara, the eldest child of Che's children by his second wife, has to some degree followed in her father's footsteps. She shares his passion for medicine, working as a paediatrician in Cuba and across the third world, as well as speaking on behalf of Cuba all around the world. Liz Else asked her what it's like to work in a country where...

    Here is the view of Reporters Without Borders, an international press freedom organization, commenting on the arrest of five Iranian bloggers in less than two months, the latest on November 28: "The government is now attacking blogs, the last bastion of freedom on a network that is experiencing ever tighter control. At the same time, an Iranian delegate is sitting on a UN-created working group on Internet governance. The international community should condemn this masquerade." The Iranian bloggers were arrested for criticizing their government, for speaking out against the arrests of other bloggers and, according to the authorities, for allegedly...
  • A left-wing monopoly on campuses (INTELLECTUAL DIVERSITY? NOT ON CAMPUS)

    12/02/2004 4:50:21 PM PST · by CHARLITE · 17 replies · 848+ views
    The left-wing takeover of American universities is an old story. As far back as the 1930s, Irving Kristol recalled in "Memoirs of a Trotskyist," City College of New York was so radical that "if there were any Republicans at City -- and there must have been some -- I never met them, or even heard of their existence." Soon the virus had spread to the nation's most elite institutions. In 1951, William F. Buckley Jr. created a sensation with "God and Man at Yale," which documented the socialist and atheist worldview that even then prevailed in the classrooms of the...

    Kerry lost the election because he did not address the "Moral Issues." The moral issue should have been the morality of sending our young men and women off to war against a country that has not attacked us. The moral issue should have been the United States killing thousands of Iraqi babies, children, women and elderly because our un-elected President wanted revenge against Saddam for attempting to kill his father. About 20% of the Bush voters said they voted for him for moral reasons. Kerry gave them no moral reasons not to vote for Bush. The "wedge issues" should have...

    John F. Kerry returns to the U.S. Senate. But what about his die-hard supporters - or the voters who chose Kerry but would have settled for anyone but Bush?They stray between anger and outrage, frustration and despair. What's happened to their country, they wonder? How could George W. Bush - a man they consider remarkably unreflective, an intellectual lightweight and someone they believe deliberately misled the country into war - have won? Ralph Wahlstrom, a Buffalo State College English professor, said he still has trouble accepting Bush's re-election a week and a half later. "I've never felt like this before,...

According to witness Monica McRae, who had come up from Denver in support of the president, McCarthy had ignored the officer when he was asked...

    The Palestinian state broadcast media today (Wednesday) embraced the two terrorists who blew themselves up on two Israeli buses, killing 16 people, bestowing on them the titles "martyr" (shahid) and "citizen" (muwatin). The Arabic language broadcasts of Yasser Arafat's Voice of Palestine condemned Israeli Army's "destruction of the home of martyr Ahmad Kawasmeh who carried out an explosive attack yesterday" as well as "the destruction of the home of Citizen Muhammad Ali Ja'abari by dint of charges that he carried out the explosive attack in Beersheba yesterday." "The destruction here is amazing and shocking," declared Voice of Palestine's correspondent Salem...
