  • ISIS: DESTROYING EGYPT’S SPHINX, PYRAMIDS IS ‘RELIGIOUS DUTY’

    Breitbart ^ | July 3, 2015 | Jordan Schachtel
    ISIS “caliph” Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi told followers of his terror group that destroying Egypt’s national monuments, such as the pyramids and the sphinx, is a “religious duty” that must be carried out by those who worship Islam, as idolatry is strictly banned in the religion, according to reports.

    She’s a former Nation of Islam member turned passionate defender of the Confederate flag — and her views on race, slavery and the South are guaranteed to stir up controversy. Karen Cooper – a black woman who belongs to a pro-Confederate flag group in Virginia – told a documentary on the rebel flag that she believes it stands for far more than the South’s history of slave ownership, and views it as a symbol of rebellion against an overreaching federal government. In an interview for the documentary “Battle Flag” she said “I actually think that [the flag] represents freedom… I’m...

    While researching material for a historical novel about a Cossack family of the Ukraine and Crimea, I found a remarkable amount of provocative and fascinating material. For instance, the Ukraine and Crimea has been both a fulcrum point and thoroughfare throughout history, but one of the most intriguing aspects of this region is that the cossacks embraced freedom, while the rest of the world was locked in slavery and imperialism. Their idea of freedom was similar to the feeling of galloping a horse over the seemingly endless steppe; they were often illiterate and their concept of freedom might be considered...

    We’ve got to teach history based not on what’s in fashion but what’s important — why the Pilgrims came here, who Jimmy Doolittle was, and what those 30 seconds over Tokyo meant. If we forget what we did, we won’t know who we are. . . . I’m warning of an eradication of the American memory that could result, ultimately, in an erosion of the American spirit. Let’s start with some basics: more attention to American history and a greater emphasis on civic ritual.

The Senate was made up of patricians and plebeians. The patricians were the historic, aristocratic landed families. The plebeians...

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK) The flags of the Confederacy that flew high over Fort Sumter, the site where the first shots of the Civil War were fired, have been taken down from the historic site. The decision to remove the flags came from a directive by National Park Service Director Jonathan Jarvis in Washington, D.C. which reads: "Confederate flags shall not be flown in units of the National Park system and related sites with the exception of specific circumstances where the flags provide historic context. ... All superintendents and program managers should evaluate how Confederate flags are used ... and remove the flags...

    It’s not possible for me to write about First Amendment issues and refrain from weighing in on the current Confederate flag controversy that is brewing down in South Carolina. Many of my students and readers have asked for my take, so here it is. I will start with an empirical prediction of what I think will happen. I’ll follow that with my opinion about why I think it will be bad for the country. First, there will be the successful effort to remove the Confederate flag from the South Carolina capitol. The move will spread to other states like Mississippi...

He had requested it especially. The next year, at a car auction in Monte Carlo, he asked his multimillionaire father for a Mercedes: the G4 that Hitler rode into the Sudetenland in 1938. Tom Wheatcroft refused to buy it and his son cried all the way home. When Wheatcroft was 15, he spent birthday money from his grandmother on three WWII Jeeps recovered from the Shetlands, which he restored himself and sold for a...

    "We're glad to see ignorant people getting out of the business" Major U.S. retailers say they’re done selling the Confederate flag—but Dewey Barber is just getting started. Under pressure, retail giants including Walmart, Amazon and eBay announced that they would pull Confederate flags and similar themed products from their websites. Barber, though, decided to do the exact opposite—he plans to begin manufacturing the Confederate flag and add it to the lineup on his Dixie Outfitters website, now that the “big boys” are out of the business.

    REMEMBER when you were taught that Australia was discovered by James Cook in 1770 who promptly declared it "terra nullius" and claimed it for the British throne? Turns out that could be completely and utterly wrong. Five copper coins and a nearly 70-year-old map with an "X" might lead to a discovery that could rewrite Australia's history. Australian scientist Ian McIntosh, currently Professor of Anthropology at Indiana University in the US, is planning an expedition in July that has stirred up the archaeological community. The scientist wants to revisit the location where five coins were found in the Northern Territory...

    (Newser) – A jawbone found in Romania more than a decade ago provides the first genetic evidence that humans and Neanderthals knocked boots in Europe before the latter disappeared between 35,000 and 40,000 years ago. Scientists who came across the bone of one of the earliest modern humans in Europe in a cave known as Pestera cu Oase noticed it had both modern human and Neanderthal traits. Now, a study of the bone's DNA—made possible by recent technological advances—explains why. "The sample is more closely related to Neanderthals than any other modern human we've ever looked at before," Harvard researcher...

    Was The Papacy Established By Christ? (Part 2) Because neither the apostolic nor the earliest post-apostolic Christians refer to a jurisdictional primacy of the bishop of Rome, Catholics often cite references to any type of primacy of the Roman church. But a non-jurisdictional primacy of the Roman church doesn't prove a jurisdictional primacy of the Roman bishop. Even Peter himself isn't referred to as having papal authority among the early post-apostolic sources. Terence Smith explains: "there is an astonishing lack of reference to Peter among ecclesiastical authors of the first half of the second century. He is barely mentioned...

    For those who don't have much familiarity with the dispute between Protestants and Catholics over the doctrine of the papacy, I want to post two introductory articles on the subject today and tomorrow. The first article, this one, will be about the Biblical evidence, and tomorrow's article will be about the early post-Biblical evidence. Roman Catholicism claims the papacy as its foundation. According to the Catholic Church, the doctrine of the papacy was understood and universally accepted as early as the time of Peter: "At open variance with this clear doctrine of Holy Scripture as it has been ever understood...

    On this day 800 years ago, King John was compelled to sign the Magna Charta, formally accepting a limit to his prerogative to ravage everything in England. But the ink on his signature was barely dry before he brought in foreign forces and tried to wipe out the barons who had compelled him to sign the Charta. The English almost lost their newly-recognized rights within months of the signing because they were not sufficiently suspicious of the King. As David Hume noted in his magisterial History of England, The ravenous and barbarous mercenaries, incited by a cruel and enraged...

    Adolf Hitler started World War II by attacking Poland on September 1, 1939. Nazi Germany moved only after it had already remilitarized the Rhineland, absorbed Austria and dismantled Czechoslovakia. Before the outbreak of the war, Hitler's new Third Reich had created the largest German-speaking nation in European history. Well before the attack on Pearl Harbor, the Imperial Japanese government had redrawn the map of Asia and the Pacific. Japan had occupied or annexed Indochina, Korea, Manchuria and Taiwan, in addition to swaths of coastal China. Attacking Hawaii, the Philippines, Hong Kong, Malaysia and Indonesia was merely the logical 1941 follow-up...

They are the “best and the brightest” in our society,people with top degrees and social connections who have positioned themselves(or been positioned)to have a great impact on our culture of politics,race,education,and economics. But at the same time, intellectualoids have severe knowledge deficits when it comes to understanding the great religious and intellectual traditions(Judeo-Christianity and the seven traditional liberal arts)that have built their civilization.

A reporter from the Tombstone Prospector newspaper pulled out his watch and counted the 35 seconds the earthquake lasted.

    Critics charge that authors of the Advanced Placement (AP) American History standards have as their goal to indoctrinate students to take a favorable view of big government, as well as the various and sundry causes of those on the Left. The authors, however, insist that they mean only to “train a generation of students to understand their nation’s history and to be active citizens who can apply their understanding of the past to their daily lives.” “Those who control the present control the past, and those who control the past control the future.” These words, penned by George Orwell in...

    What sometimes seem like epic battles to reshape the world generally fade to irrelevance very quickly.

Only a few events and documents -- like the American Declaration of Independence -- are worthy of celebrating even a century or two later. On Monday, June 15, the Magna Carta turns 800,...
