    The jihad against the freedom of speech is advancing rapidly, and most people don’t even know it’s happening.Turkey’s state-run news outlet Anadolu Agency reports: Google’s first page results for searches of terms such as “jihad”, “shariah” and “taqiyya” now return mostly reputable explanations of the Islamic concepts. Taqiyya, which describes the circumstances under which a Muslim can conceal their belief in the face of persecution, is the sole term to feature a questionable website on the first page of results. (emphasis added) “Reputable” according to whom? “Questionable” according to whom?Google has bowed to pressure from Muslims such as Texas imam...

    Sacramento, California (CNN)It's a recent Friday night in downtown Sacramento, and there's a man in a hotel lobby wearing a fur vest and sunglasses. He has a British accent. A line of college-age fans stretches out the door. They're waiting for autographs and selfies. Some are wearing "Make America Great Again" caps. "Milo I love you! Oh my god, thank you -- I love what you do," says one woman to the man in the fur vest. "Thank you for what you're doing," says another college student wearing a Donald Trump hat. The subject of their adulation is not a...
  • Liberal Attempts To Silent Dissenters Will Not End Well

    So, that man in “Freedom of Speech,” the famous Norman Rockwell painting of an America exercising one of the liberals’ least favorite rights, stands up in 2016 to say his peace and … it will not end well. You see, to liberals, what our guy has to say isn’t important – what’s important to liberals is to shut him up. It’s to punch down upon him with cheap mockery so he’s beaten into submission. It’s to use shame to silence him and every other irredeemable deplorable in order to consolidate their progressive death grip upon America’s throat. This will not...

    Whoever coined the phrase, “The devil you know is better than the one you don’t,” OBVIOUSLY never met Hillary Clinton. There is a reason she is called Hitlery not only in private, but often in print as well at times. There is no situation on earth that the Devil we know with Hitlery, is EVER better than ANYONE, let alone Donald Trump. How many people has Trump killed again? Oh yes, zero. First of all, there's her never-ending killing spree of her political opposition. On August 6th, when I wrote, Clinton Adds +5 to Body Count in 6 Weeks, a...
  • On Immigration, Biden Wants Bridges Not Walls, Suggests Trump ‘Un-American’

    Legal Insurrection ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    In my old liberal hometown of Ithaca, NY, back in the days of George W., it seemed you couldn’t drive a block without seeing a “Dissent Is Patriotic” bumper sticker. But the night Barack Obama was elected, one imagined all across town earnest souls in their driveways, scraping those stickers off. And so it is that Joe Biden, the Vice-President of the United States, traveled to Ireland to imply that Donald Trump is ‘un-American.” For good measure, when it comes to illegal immigration, Biden proclaimed a preference for “bridges” over “walls.” Think about that.

  • New Obama Terror Czar Will Target Conservatives, Christians

    thenewamerican ^ | Monday, 19 October 2015 | Alex Newman
    The Obama administration's increasingly controversial Justice Department, in partnership with the ultra-leftist Southern Poverty Law Center, announced the creation of a new czar position to focus on “domestic terrorism” — especially the alleged threat from Christians and Americans with “anti-government” views. While ostensibly created to serve as a coordination office overseeing domestic terror cases, critics and analysts are sounding the alarm, warning that the administration is plotting to go after its political opponents with the full force of the federal government. The impetus for the Obama DOJ's new focus on conservatives, libertarians, Christians, and others appears to be the Southern...

    One of the biggest champions for gun control in the Empire State, State Sen. Liz Krueger, D-Manhattan, is advocating taking over the National Rifle Association from the inside. After broaching the subject in a round table discussion with U.S. Rep. Carolyn Maloney, D-NY, who is a fan of anti-gun legislation at a national level, Kruger repeated it for clarity to the New York Daily News. “Perhaps if we all join, we could take over that group and start a new (gun control) platform,” Krueger said. “I think we outnumber the people who are members of the NRA and are so...

    Just 42 years ago, homosexuality was considered a diagnosable mental illness. In an ironic twist, it is now those who wantonly fear gay people that are being labeled as mentally ill. According to findings recently published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, if you harbor homophobic views it’s likely you may also endorse some of the following dysfunctions: misogynism, psychoticism, uber-religiosity, immature coping mechanisms, [discomfort] with close relationships, and above average levels of anger, aggression, hostility, and hyper-masculinity.
  • In Welcoming Sanders, Liberty University Shows the Left How to Handle Dissent

    National Review ^ | 09/16/2015 | by Andrew T. Walker
    Most have heard by now that Senator Bernie Sanders spoke at Liberty University yesterday. Liberty, of course, is the university masthead for conservative Christianity and the origin of the Jerry Falwell enterprise. Its influence in merging conservative Christianity with Republicans politics is well known. Sanders, of course, is the notoriously liberal — nay, socialist — United States senator from Vermont now running a long-shot bid for the presidency. Sanders is an avowed progressive whose views earnestly mimic those of European statists. He’s pro–gay rights, pro–gay marriage, and pro-abortion. On issues near and dear to conservative Christians — life and marriage...
  • Did The Four Dissenting Justices In Gay Marriage Case Just Suggest Treason?

    The Daily Beast ^ | 06/28/2015 | Jay Michaelson
    In controversial cases, is the role of jurist to inflame controversy, or quell it? In Loving v. Virginia, the 1967 case which found race-based marriage bans unconstitutional, Chief Justice Earl Warren built a 9-0 consensus—just as he’d done years earlier in Brown vs. Board of Education. He knew that a country divided by race ought to be united, if possible, by a Supreme Court mindful of fundamental values—even if the Court was, as the constitution requires, overturning the will of the majority. The four dissents in the landmark case on same-sex marriage, Obergefell v. Hodges, one by each of the...

    Five Supreme Court justices agreed that culture reigns over Constitution in Obergefell v. Hodges, as they found another emanation from the 14th Amendment--this one granting "dignity and liberty"--a phrase that most (American) third year law students would be hard pressed to find in their texts (at least before Friday). Fortunately, Americans pay Supreme Court justices for their careful legal analysis and foresight on issues like this.  Four of them saw the cowardice in having the Court decide what is outside their proper role. Four of the justices dissented in the case.  Here are their own words. In his dissent, Justice...

    Backers of the Affordable Care Act were treated to twin delights on Thursday: First, the law was upheld, so nobody will be kicked off their insurance by the Supreme Court. And second, the dissent was written by Justice Antonin Scalia who, when angry (which is always), has a penchant for literary drama. "Words no longer have meaning," Scalia wrote in the dissent he read from the bench. They might not, but that didn't stop Scalia from piling them on top of each other in an angry heap. Here are some of the choicest of his meaningless words. [Snip] "Today's interpretation...

    The Right Scoop ^ | 9/23/14 | The Right Scoop
    But the point is, this started in civil society. That’s what prompted action by President Clinton and by myself. And promoting civil society that can surface issues and push leadership is not just in keeping with our values — it’s not charity. It’s in our national interest. Countries that respect human rights, including freedom of association happen to be our closest partners. That is not an accident. Conversely, when these rights are suppressed, it fuels grievances and a sense of injustice that over time can fuel instability or extremism. So, I believe America’s support for civil society is a matter...

    An Iranian university professor faces 18 months in jail for questioning the merit of the country’s nuclear program and for asking if a businessman convicted of fraud should have been executed, AFP reported on Thursday. The professor, Sadeq Zibakalam, said on his Facebook page that he was found guilty by a Revolutionary Court of “committing propaganda against the system, spreading rumors and insulting the judiciary.” Zibakalam, 66, who teaches politics at Tehran University, said he was given a 12-month sentence on account of letters he wrote to critics of the present government’s attempts to resolve the nuclear issue. …

    Milwaukee police who forced their way into a gun rights advocate's home without a warrant, took her for an emergency mental evaluation and seized her gun were justified under the circumstances and protected from her civil rights claims, a federal appeals court has ruled. "The intrusions upon Sutterfield's privacy were profound," Judge Ilana Rovner wrote for three-judge panel. "At the core of the privacy protected by the Fourth Amendment is the right to be let alone in one's home." But the court also found, that on the other hand, "There is no suggestion that (police) acted for any reason other...
  • Dissent No Longer Tolerated In Pro-Sodomite America

    We’ve reached the point where dissent is no longer welcome in America. It’s hardly surprising. After nearly six years of President Obama declaring debates over and issues decided, it’s hardly a surprise that the left has shifted that principle elsewhere. The first open sodomite in NFL history was drafted in the 7th round on Saturday. ESPN just happened to show the announcement from the draft podium, something they hadn’t done for other draftees since the 5th round and hadn’t done with regularity since the 2nd round. They just happened to know he would be drafted by the St. Louis Rams.
