    Thursday, November 26, 2015 Being Thankful for the Left Posted by Daniel Greenfield @ the Sultan Knish blog When we celebrate Thanksgiving, after being thankful for family and friends, for health and comfort, for food and shelter; we shouldn't forget to be thankful for the left. There is no light without darkness and without evil, the good often fails to find their own voice. It is in the presence of slavery that we remember the worth of freedom. Men and nations are forged in war; not only the war of shell and shot, but the war of ideas. War teaches...

    Oh, wait....wrong Turkey. quite like seeing a lame duck president pardoning the national turkey (can you tell which one's which?). Actually, I think our comedian-in-chief is pretty good in this role. Nor did I mind his jab at GOP presidential candidates (I think some of them are turkeys). It was done in lighthearted jest. No harm, no foul, however fowl. While I am sympathetic to the plight of Syrian refugees and consider some of the rhetoric against allowing these refugees into the States to be tinged with hysteria, exaggerations, xenophobia, and Islamophobia, I also find legitimate concerns as well....

Taking a look at some of the news stories, with an idea coming in on what I wanted to focus on, being as how it is Thanksgiving Day, I'll put a "I'm thankful for" or "I'm not thankful for" spin on some of these stories, and while many of them are negative, there actually is a dose or two of humor to be found as well. So stay tuned for a show on Black Lives Matter, Syrian refugees, ISIS, Barack...

    Socialism has never worked in the past. Socialism does not work in the present. Socialism will never work in the future. The reason is simple: socialism is predicated on a violation of two of the 10 commandments of God. The 8th Commandment says, “Thou shalt not steal.” The 10th Commandment says, “Thou shalt not covet.” And yet socialism is driven by covetousness – the greedy, grasping hunger of some for other people’s money – and built on theft – the use of government power to coercively lift money from the wallets of some in order to give it to others....

    Data for 2014—the latest year available—indicates that burglars absconded with $3.9 billion worth of victims’ property. At the same time, “civil forfeiture” made off with $4.5 billion worth. The civil forfeiture statute was initially sold as a tool for coping with organized crime. It has morphed into crime wave in which police seize cash from individuals on the slimmest of pretexts and dare the owner to try to get it back through cumbersome and costly procedures. A favored tactic is to assert that any cash that a person may be carrying was obtained via criminal activity. As proof, police cite...

    s The enthusiasm gap among voters is the deciding factor in elections; it tells us the true story. In years when Republicans won big they controlled the enthusiasm gap: 1994 it was 44/33; 2002 it was 46/39; in 2010 it was a massive 63/44 and in 2014 it was 42/32. When Democrats won in 2006 they held a 52/41 edge in enthusiasm among their voters. So far Hillary Clinton’s campaign is not generating enthusiasm. A recent New York Times piece presents a serious warning for Clinton. It’s not based on a “feeling” but on surveys of her supporters. Among voters...

    The Michigan Economic Development Corporation — the state's corporate welfare arm — won’t disclose the companies to which it hands out public money. In other states, this type of information is routinely made available, which strongly suggests the barriers to doing so in Michigan are strictly homegrown. “Bottom line is that there is absolutely no reason — business climate or privacy — to not disclose corporate income tax credits, and the trend among states is absolutely toward more disclosure of them,” said Greg LeRoy, the executive director of Washington, D.C.-based Good Jobs First, a group that monitors businesses. “States are...

    The amount of vehicle registration (license plate) tax the state collects from Michigan motorists each year is up 24 percent since 1990, even after factoring in inflation. Revenue from the Motor Vehicle Registration tax rose from $420.2 million in 1990 to $943.5 million in 2014, according to the Senate Fiscal Agency. If expressed in 2014 dollars, the $420.2 million collected in 1990 would be equivalent to $761.1 million today. The amount actually collected last year represents a 24 percent increase in that figure. This revenue stream will grow another 20 percent starting Jan. 1, 2017, thanks to a tax increase...

Rational "Prejudice," "hatred" and "fear" of Islam are, therefore, now Islamophobic.Obama often proclaims that there is no reason to fear Islam --  the religion of truth and love -- and that He welcomes it in His America. It is permissible, indeed even patriotic, to fear and oppose the Non-Islamic Islamic State, but to fear and to oppose Islam runs counter to American values and is, therefore, worse than merely vile.

    Of course the greatest terrorist fear that they have from all of us is that we just might vote Republican I realized this morning, in the middle of my first cup of coffee, that I should be classified as a terrorist! I mean who knew? Thinking back, Janet Napolitano accused veterans of being potential terrorists. I’m a veteran who spent two fun-filled years in Viet Nam, so the worthy Ms. Napolitano has declared me to be a terrorist. Are you a member of the Tea Party (or even fellow traveler of those good folks)? When the answer is a resounding...

    We’ve been hearing it from the atheists for decades. We’ve been hearing it from the legions of the hypocritical politically correct, but how many of us ever thought we’d ever hear these words from a Bishop of Rome: “Christmas is a charade”. (Pope Francis, Nov. 12, 2015) We can image the loud cheers being sent up from the secular world at the pontiff’s bullseye shot at the heart at Christmas, because it comes from a source that was least expected on the eve of Advent 2015.

    Over the past several months there has been a public discussion about what to do with the mass migration of Syrian refugees traveling to the West, fleeing from violence. The recent attacks in Paris have raised concerns about ISIS operatives posing as innocents fleeing from violence. Some leaders in Europe and the United States have seized upon this heinous incident to reverse the decision to welcome Syrian refugees. While these positions are understandable, they are also misguided. In fact, welcoming Syrian refugees into America helps our nation in the long fight against ISIS by undermining the terrorist group's recruitment message....

  • Islam -- Radical, Extremist and Mainstream

    In largely secular western societies, Islam and its history are viewed by many non-Muslims as substantially irrelevant to how devout Muslims behave. Perhaps the view that religion is of little importance to devout Muslims is based on the role, minor if any, that religion and religious history play in their own secular lives. However, both Islamic teachings and history give devout Muslims their grounding in Islam and teach them that Islam is the religion of war, not peace: Islam must become the world's only religion by extirpating all others.Islam was founded by Mohamed ( c. 570 CE – 8 June 632 CE) in the sixth...
  • Democrats prefer fantasy to reality

    The terrorists were telling the world all we need to know about the threat we face. Unfortunately, President Obama, the Democratic presidential candidates and left wing political leaders in Europe and this country refuse to listen Last Saturday night, 8.5 million Americans had the misfortune to watch three dangerously out of touch liberals debate the major issues of the day during the Democratic Party’s presidential debate. It was another example of how Democrats prefer the fantasy of their liberal beliefs to the true reality we are facing as a nation. In the immediate aftermath of the Paris terrorist attacks, much...

    Protection of this nation from the insidious importation of terror under the guise of poor, despondent refugees. States must prosecute their authority as expressed by the Constitution Chastising and threatening governors with temper tantrums is all the power the president wields in attempting to force states to accept refugees whose numbers are likely riddled with terrorists. And the House of Representatives isn’t catering to the snarky attitude either, having just passed a bill to place a hold on acceptance of refugees from Syria with a bipartisan, veto-proof majority. How this issue goes forward depends on the willingness of the Senate...

    If people fail to understand the concept of Big Brother Government and the Welfare State, forgetting patriotism, cultural heritage, and history, all freedoms will vanish. The chickens of intolerance and communist social justice have come home to roost on the American campus. Decades of Marxist indoctrination by the vaunted communist academia are finally paying off—our cultural heritage is replaced by cultural Marxism and primitive cultures that are deemed superior to ours and worshipped. Academia has been blotting out the past and revising history for a while but with increased vengeance since Jimmy Carter founded the U.S. Department of Education on...
