  • Good Without God? Not in the Long Run

    I see regularly the slogan from the American Humanists Association: “Good Without God.” And I think….well, maybe for a while, one can be good (before men). But only because they piggyback on the Judeo-Christian values they may have imbibed. After a while, it all fades away. The reality of that fading away now hits us daily in the news. There’s not a week that goes by without some new report of violence and mayhem. Some attacks are worse than others. Just recently, the UK’s Daily Mail referred to “lawless Paris,” in an attack on innocent people, including tourists. Their sensational...
  • Dylann Roof case: Feds to seek death penalty

    05/25/2016 5:36:17 PM PDT · by ErikJohnsky · 26 replies
    Federal prosecutors will seek the death penalty for Dylann Roof, who is accused of killing nine people at a historic African-American church in Charleston, South Carolina, in July 2015. Roof, who is white, is charged with 33 federal offenses, including hate crime charges for allegedly targeting his victims on the basis of their race and religion. A judge entered a not guilty plea on his behalf in July 2015. "The nature of the alleged crime and the resulting harm compelled this decision," Attorney General Loretta Lynch said.

    Target Corp gave a cautious outlook on Wednesday after reporting a lower-than-expected increase in quarterly sales at established stores because of unseasonable weather and weaker demand for electronics and groceries. Shares of the company fell as much as 11 percent, their biggest intraday decline since December 2008, as investors shrugged off higher-than-expected earnings. The stock was down 7.1 percent at $68.27 in the early afternoon.

    Judge Wayne Salvant signed an order Wednesday reaffirming the probation terms he imposed on Ethan Couch in April. The judge canceled a hearing on the matter scheduled for May 16. Salvant had ordered that Couch spend 180 days in jail for each of the four people he killed in 2013 when he rammed a pickup truck into a crowd of people helping a motorist. The sentences were to be served consecutively.

    (UK) Daily Mail ^ | April 29, 2016 | James Wilkinson
    The Republican Party is now more hated than it's been in 24 years, new research shows - and it might be the fault of Donald Trump. In October, 37 percent of people polled had a favorable view of the Republican Party and 58 percent viewed it negatively. Now those numbers are 33 percent in favor and 62 percent against, according to data released by the Pew Research Center Thursday. That puts the party at its lowest point since 1992 - the latest point in a drop that has coincided with the rise of Trump.
  • Montana GOP officials fight to 'close' primary, in complication for Trump

    Fox News ^ | 3/21/2016
    Montana Republicans are asking the U.S. Supreme Court to step in as early as this week and force the state to “close” its upcoming primary so only GOP voters can participate -- in a case that could pose complications for Donald Trump. The Republican front-runner so far has done better in "open" primaries, where members of both parties can vote, than in "closed" primaries limited to Republican voters only. Montana, set to vote June 7, has had an “open primary” since 1912. But state GOP officials want to change all that, in a bid to keep out Democrats and other...

    ATLANTA (AP) — Texas Sen. Ted Cruz is warning conservatives that the "Trump train" could become "unstoppable" if Republican front-runner Donald Trump rolls to big victories in the Super Tuesday primaries. Almost a quarter of the GOP's nominating delegates are at stake in the March 1 contests. Speaking Sunday to CNN, Cruz cast Trump as a carbon copy of Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton and suggested that not even Trump "knows what he would do" as president. Trump, meanwhile, is mocking Republican leaders who say his nomination would be catastrophic for the party.

    West European governments are beginning to say no to the Muslim invasion, finally recognizing, as Czech president had warned, "It's practically impossible to integrate Muslims into Europe". (See also "Muslim migrants mean rape, violent crimes, social instability & revolution") Both Sweden and Finland are trying to stem the human tidal wave with plans to expel, respectively, 80,000 and 20,000 of 'refugees'.

    Sweden is losing its patience with refugees. In the wake of the sexual assaults allegedly perpetrated by men of “Arab origin” in Cologne, Germany on New Year’s Eve, the Swedish press revealed what certainly appeared to be a coverup related to a wave of similar incidents that apparently occurred at a youth festival and concert in central Stockholm’s KungstrĂ€dgĂ„rden last August. That ruffled the feathers of quite a few Swedes and then, earlier this week, we learned that a 22-year-old asylum center worker was murdered in a knife attack carried out by a 15-year-old Somali migrant named Youssaf Khalif Nuur,...

City police said a crowd of men, women and children had gathered outside the MAC centre when a man wearing a white-hoodie apparently rode by on a bicycle and sprayed 15 to 30 people. Witnesses said several of those who were hit started coughing and complaining of burning eyes. Police said that a number of people...

    A British Muslim family heading for Disneyland was barred from boarding a flight to Los Angeles by US authorities at London's Gatwick airport amid concerns of an American overreaction to the perceived terrorist threat. US Department of Homeland Security officials provided no explanation for why the country refused to allow the family of 11 to board the planeeven though they had been granted travel authorization online ahead of their planned 15 December flight. Senior politicians have been drawn into the case, warning that a growing number of British Muslims are being barred from the US without being told the reason...

Death threats called in to mosques in Florida, Maryland and Virginia. Anecdotal evidence suggests 2015, a year bookended by murderous attacks carried out in the name of Islam, has been one of the most intensely anti-Muslim periods in American history. A new study shared with CNN puts statistical heft behind that suspicion. Through December 8, American mosques and Islamic centers have been the victims of vandalism, harassment and anti-Muslim bigotry at least 63 times this year, the Council on...

An employee at the Al Aqsa Islamic Society mosque found the bloodied head when he arrived around 6 a.m. Monday. Surveillance video at the site, along Germantown Avenue, captured a red pickup truck that drove twice past the mosque just before 11 p.m. Sunday. On its second pass, someone threw an item from the passenger window, the video shows. Pigs are considered insulting to Muslims who observe halal dietary laws.

Nine pigs' heads were found on the fence, the rest laid out on the ground. Plastic bags full of blood in which the heads have been transported were also found at the site.

    Never has there been a time in history requiring that an individual be equipped with critical thinking skills more than now. The biggest problem that America is facing today is the inability of the vast majority of the citizenry to think critically. Matt Drudge went so far as to say that Americans are sick. Lack of the ability to think critically is a mental symptom that affects all people regardless of their level of education, economic status, age, race, ethnicity, sex, or political party (although it appears that liberals are more likely to lack such skills).

At 0637 ET, the rouble was down over 11 percent against the dollar at 73.00 after dipping past 74 rubles per...

In an interview with the Spanish Catholic weekly Vida Nueva, published Thursday (Oct. 30), Burke insisted he was not speaking out against the pope personally but raising concern about his leadership. “Many have expressed their concerns to me. At this very critical moment, there is a strong sense that the church is like...

    GAZA CITY, Gaza—More than a month after The Daily Beast reported evidence suggesting Israeli soldiers carried out the summary execution of six men amid fierce combat in late July, there are no signs that the Israeli government is investigating the matter. It has declined to respond to repeated inquiries. The independent organizations Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International, which the Israeli authorities have barred from Gaza, are unable to follow up in detail. And a United Nations investigation of abuses on both sides is barely under way.The Daily Beast has continued its own investigation, however. And the picture that’s emerging...

The American university tends to be fairly hostile to the conservative movement. One of the core tenets of conservatism is the Judeo-Christian teaching that...

    Nobel Peace Prize winner Barack Obama draws on the deep well of his wisdom and his foreign policy successes to instruct Israelis on the path to peace in today’s Haaretz column “Peace is the only true path to security for Israel and the Palestinians.” Warning: Reading may induce nausea. “In President Abbas, Israel has a counterpart committed to a two-state solution and security cooperation with Israel,” Obama writes. Benjamin Netanyahu? The observant reader — such as Josh Lederman, the author of this AP story — will note that Obama offered no parallel praise for Netanyahu. He also omits any mention...

    March 19, 2014, 05:09 pm Obama's promise: No military action in Ukraine from US By Jeremy Herb President Obama said Wednesday that the U.S. military would not take military action in Ukraine against Russia. "We are not going to be getting into a military excursion in Ukraine,” Obama said in an interview Wednesday with KNSD, the NBC affiliate in San Diego.

Obama is coming under increased pressure to take action against Russia for...
