    The Gog of Turkey, president Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, said his country could not endure Russian violations any longer of its airspace in its campaign in Syria. Gog y Magog Russian involvement in the 4½-year-old Syrian civil war seems to be escalating, with NATO’s secretary general confirming Tuesday a second incursion by Russian planes into Turkish airspace and saying Russian ground troops were in Syria as well. The first violation of Turkey’s airspace is reported to have happened Saturday. The second was Sunday, officials said. Now even CNN says: The tension between Russia and Turkey, however, appears to be escalating. The...

  • Lost 'Epic of Gilgamesh' Verse Depicts Cacophonous Abode of Gods (New find)

    Live Science ^ | October 2, 2015 | Elizabeth Palermo, Associate Editor
    A serendipitous deal between a history museum and a smuggler has provided new insight into one of the most famous stories ever told: "The Epic of Gilgamesh." The new finding, a clay tablet, reveals a previously unknown "chapter" of the epic poem from ancient Mesopotamia. This new section brings both noise and color to a forest for the gods that was thought to be a quiet place in the work of literature. The newfound verse also reveals details about the inner conflict the poem's heroes endured. In 2011, the Sulaymaniyah Museum in Slemani, in the Kurdistan region of Iraq, purchased...

    Of America’s founding architects, Thomas Jefferson is arguably one of the greatest minds and ardent defenders of liberty and the fundamental rights of man. Yet he was wise enough to recognize that he was not immune from the corrupting effects of governing power. Jefferson said, “If once they [the people] become inattentive to the public affairs, you and I, and Congress, and Assemblies, judges and governors shall all become wolves … Cherish therefore the spirit of our people, and keep alive their attention. Do not be too severe upon their errors, but reclaim them by enlightening them.” From textbooks to...

I certainly don’t. The Donald’s phenomenon has been the big political story of the summer, interrupted only for short periods of time when someone else loses some more emails or resigns from Congress or visits from the Vatican.

    The long-lost Biblical city of Sodom — a city that the Bible claims was destroyed by God because of its immorality — may finally have been found. Archaeologists have uncovered a slew of monumental structures and artifacts in a Jordan Valley mound known as Tall el-Hammam offering evidence of a city-state that is believed to have thrived during the Bronze Age when other Holy Land cities were being abandoned or were in decline. Based on the location, dates of occupation, and the remains of other ancient cities nearby, archaeologists think it's the best candidate yet for what was once Sodom....

His mother was black. He doesn't seem to have even known his father. He identified with black TV killer Vester Lee Flanagan. This doesn't seem to have stopped the media with George Zimmerman who was labeled a white Hispanic, so maybe Chris Harper Mercer was a white Black? Was he a Half-White Supremacist?

Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, Ben Carson and others have famously called Obama out in the public square over his anti-Christian rhetoric, and have even accused Obama of conducting a "War On Christians", with little or no rebuttal from Obama's Hate House. Is Barack Obama the modern equivalent of England's King Henry II, who faced determined opposition from the Christian leader Thomas Becket? Finally, in a fit of rage over...

In that perspective, let us imagine that the refugees are not Syrians but Swedes — blonde, blue-eyed souls with fellow European and Christian roots. Wouldn't that prove that the animosity towards the mainly Arab and/or Muslim refugees is all about racism? Be honest, dude: Wouldn't I be eager to help if the refugees turned out to be of fellow Scandinavian stock?

    The baton was officially transferred Monday to the world’s new sole superpower — and Vladimir Putin willingly picked it up. President Obama (remember him?) embraced the ideals espoused by the United Nations’ founders 70 years ago: Diplomacy and “international order” will win over time, while might and force will lose. Putin, too, appealed to UN laws (as he sees them), but he also used his speech to announce the formation of a “broad international coalition” to fight ISIS in Syria and Iraq. “Similar to the anti-Hitler coalition, it could unite a broad range of forces” to fight “those who, just...

    Seventy-five years ago today, Red Army troops smashed into Poland. Masters of deception and propaganda, they encouraged locals to believe that they were coming to join the battle against Hitler, who had invaded two weeks’ earlier. But, within a day, the true nature of the Nazi-Soviet collaboration was exposed. The two armies met at the town of Brest, where the 1918 peace treaty between the Kaiser’s government and Lenin’s revolutionary state had been signed. Soldiers fraternised, exchanging food and tobacco – pre-rolled German cigarettes contrasting favourably against rough Russian papirosi. A joint military parade was staged, the Wehrmacht’s field grey...

    What is the fundamental reason to select Senator Ted Cruz over a field of other candidates for the Republican presidential candidate? The answer lies in the constitution -- not in some part of the document, but in the IMPORTANCE of the document. Senator Cruz has established that he understands this fundamental fact, and relies on it more than any other candidate. And he has the experience and educational background to make that understanding more effectual. Why is the Constitution so particularly important in this presidential election? Was it not always equally important? It is more important because America, like many...

Putin took over Syria, and that’s that. Charles Krauthammer blamed it on the “utter passivity of the United States,” that has allowed ISIS to attract 7,000 new jihadis in the last few months alone.  Some of them are from the U.S., and some of them are from Russia.  While we hand-wring our way into irrelevance, Russia is determined never to let ISIS fighters back into their country.

    As a survey revealed, the majority of U.S. police officers support an armed citizenry. Why wouldn’t they? With their hands-on experience dealing with criminals, they know how effective personal arms can be. They don’t live in protected, “green zone” enclaves. They have non-police friends, family and associates. Many if not most have had positive experiences with armed defenders. In short, police and Sheriff Departments are a rich source of natural allies for defenders of American gun rights . . . Police that support the Second Amendment give disarmists nightmares. In theory, all police should support Americans’ gun rights. From...

Because there is no third way: either the civilization conquers the barbarians, or the barbarians conquer the civilization. In the history of mankind both these outcomes happened, and multiple times. And, here's an important issue. Note that none...

    Environmentalism is Fascism ^ | 9/25/2015 | William Kay
    Writing a bio of Jorge Bergoglio (Pope Francis) requires a directory of late-20th century neo-fascist organizations. His life is entwined with: the Argentine Iron Guard, Propaganda Due, the Argentine Anti-Communist Alliance, Tacuara, Comunione e Liberazione, La Cite Catholic, and Opus Dei. Arguably, the worst neo-fascist clique Bergoglio has links with is the Argentine Episcopal Conference. Bergoglio’s election as Pope culminated a half-century struggle whereby reactionaries inside the Church regained control after the liberalizing, modernizing efforts of the Second Vatican Council. It is fitting that Catholic-fascism’s triumph should be celebrated with the hoisting of a great green standard. Laudato Si, with...

Or was she just 'posing', making disingenuous offers the  Islamists were never expected to exploit quite like this... _______________________________________________________ As Ma Merkel and the German left force their Nazi-guilt-driven policy down the rest of Europe's throats, they already have other EU states openly fighting each other and sending tanks to their internal EU borders in attempts to deal with the (75% military-age male) Muslim mobs now invading their lands.   As the German (and EU's effective) leader has so recklessly drawn 1000s of people to German cities through...

    For our U.S. Army and its unrivaled soldiers, this year marks 240 years of selfless service to the nation A crowd of 7,500 patriotic Americans attended the U.S. Army’s 2015 Spirit of America show, a performance highlighting our proud history through the eyes of the American Soldier. Aptly named, the Patriot Center on the campus of George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia, was brimming with excited men, women, and children who came to pay their respects to our elite soldiers who have sworn to uphold our Constitution and to defend our country so that we may enjoy the freedoms that...

    Nobody can predict the future. Not Nostradamus, not Karl Rove, not the Oracle at Delphi. But as primary voters, we must try. Not because we’re going to Las Vegas to bet on the election, but because every primary race is dependent on some judgment about the likely result. In November, voters only need to ask one question: •Which of the major party candidates would be better in the office? But in the primaries and caucuses, we have several questions to ask: •Which of our choices would be best in the office? •Which of our choices has the best shot in...

    Most of us infidels in the West have been lied to. Trusting the education system, foolishly, we believed all the bunk bundled into our textbooks concerning the period in history (1096-1272 AD) when the Crusades took place. They left out an itty-bitty piece of info ... this will be great for all your 'enlightened' friends ... The real reason WHY the Crusades took place ... and here's the shocker: It was a response to Islam's aggression! That's right, it all began with Muhammed's implicit threat more than 450 years before the Crusaders entered Jerusalem. He said: "embrace Islam and you...

    Friday, September 18, 2015 We're Turning Japanese Now Posted by Daniel Greenfield @ the Sultan Knish blog It's an article of American faith that Japan is an incredibly strange place. The world has been mapped and GPS'ed to death ruining much of the thrill of discovery. There probably aren't any hidden cities with remnants of lost civilizations lurking in the deserts of Africa or the jungles of South America. That just leaves the land of the rising sun as the X on the map, the strange place that suggests that the world that we know all too well, might still...

    Cagney and Bob Hope at a Friar's Club Meeting in 1955, back when actors were real performers; Hope was 52 and Cagney was 56. This looks like it's from a movie, not a routine from a Friar's Club meeting. Doesn't take away from it though! For the young folks, here is something you probably never seen before and, unfortunately, you may never see again. For us older folks, this is the best of the best, and we had it for many years! This is a side of these two entertainers you hardly ever saw, but it shows you their enormous...

    Our Ageless Constitution "The structure has been erected by architects of consummate skill and fidelity; its foundations are solid; its components are beautiful, as well as useful; its arrangements are full of wisdom and order...." -Justice Joseph Story Justice Story's words pay tribute to the United States Constitution and its Framers. Shortly before the 100th year of the Constitution, in his "History of the United States of America," written in 1886, historian George Bancroft said: "The Constitution is to the American people a possession for the ages." He went on to say: "In America, a new people had risen up without...

    Where can I find a list of the net worth of those in Congress starting with the year they were elected? Then an ongoing net worth of each time they are reelected? I'd like to compare how the net worth increases or decreases (yeah right!) the longer one serves in Congress.

    The Daily Sabah Food ^ | September 8, 2015 | Daily Sabah with Anadolu Agency
    An archaeological team excavating the ancient site of Alacahöyük, one of the most significant centers of the ancient Hittite civilization, cooked pastries belonging to Hittite cuisine that dates back 4,000 years. The foods found on Hittite tablets were cooked without modern technology or equipment. The 4,000-year-old Hittite cuisine was cooked in Alacahöyük, an important Neolithic settlement and Turkey's first nationally excavated area. Aykut Çınaroğlu, the head of the excavations and professor of archaeology at Ankara University, told Anadolu Agency (AA) that Chef Ömür Akkor, an excavation team member, prepared a special Hittite menu in light of the available archaeological findings....

    They are one of our closest human relatives and dominated Europe and much of Asia for hundreds of thousands of years, but Neanderthals may be far older than previously thought. A new study by geneticists has revealed a collection of fossilised bones discovered in a cave in northern Spain belonged to an early member of the Neanderthal family. It is the oldest partial genome from early human fossils ever to be sequenced and pushes back the date for the origins of the Neanderthal branch of our evolutionary tree by up to 300,000 years....

    How Obama’s Nuke Deal Leads to the Next Iraq War Obama’s original Iraq treason led to his Iran treason today. September 11, 2015 Daniel Greenfield    Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the David Horowitz Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam. In his sales pitch for the nuclear deal with Iran that even he admitted gives the terrorist regime a near zero breakout time to the bomb, Obama pulled out every conceivable stop. He even accused opponents of trying to get the country into a war with Iran just as they had “brought the...
