    FULL TITLE:Mexican presidential hopeful vows support for illegal immigrants as he hits campaign trail–in California! A candidate running for president of Mexico who slams President Trump and supports illegal immigrants may not seem so unusual. But where the candidate chose to campaign is more than questionable. Ricardo Anaya Cortes reportedly took his Mexican presidential bid across the border into California, Fox News reported. Anaya met with businessmen and activists in Los Angeles, according to the Mexican newspaper Excelsior, calling for protections for illegal immigrants and blasting the U.S. president – while on American soil.
  • Progressive on progressive violence

    10/28/2017 9:36:44 AM PDT · by ProgressingAmerica · 11 replies
    Progressives are the stupidest people on the planet. They really are. It's moderately funny to consider that around a year ago, the progressives of today were attacking Woodrow Wilson, and now we have the progressives out there attacking another historical progressive, Theodore Roosevelt. You seen this report? Activists splash red paint on Theodore Roosevelt statue on Museum of Natural History stepsTheodore Roosevelt is being attacked because he was white and because he was an imperialist. This is so incredibly dumb. Theodore Roosevelt was an open progressive. He was proud of social justice. These are not secrets, you can google them...

The members of the Central Military Commission were selected at the first plenary session of the Communist Party's 19th Central Committee on Wednesday. The military body also was shrunk from 11 to seven members including Xi, its chairman. The remaining six posts...

  • Diane Abbott sparks fury that UK was "racist" (Next Homeland Minister in UK?)

    The wannabe Home Secretary claimed Brits “invented racism” and called Parliament “the heart of darkness, in the belly of the beast”. It comes after the top Corbyn ally has been forced to distance herself from a slew of anti-British remarks from her long career. According to contemporary reports the incendiary remarks were made to a US conference for radical left wingers in 1988 — but last night sparked fury. Top Tory James Cleverly hit out: “Many people feel that Corbyn’s core team, including Diane Abbott, don’t really like Britain and British people. These quotes prove it.”

    On February 23rd, 1903, Woodrow Wilson said: I am of the class of men who are described as imperialists, and yet I have had such an intense sympathy with the men on the other side who are getting sat upon that I could almost have wished that my opinions were different that I might join their ranks. From The Papers of Woodrow Wilson, Volume 14, Page 367. Also, here.

    In a video posted on her Facebook page on September 21, New York-based Egyptian-American activist Ayat Oraby called the Coptic church "a gang, striving to establish a Coptic mini-state," and "a full-fledged mafia," and described Pope Tawadros as "a criminal." Oraby called upon Muslims to participate in an economic boycott of Copts, saying that: "They must be made to understand that the crescent must be on top of the cross."

    The troops were traveling to provide security at a refugee camp when their vehicle was hit, the Chinese Defense Ministry statement said. “The Chinese military is deeply shocked by and strongly condemns the attack,” the statement said, adding condolences to the victims and their family members. The loss of the two Chinese peacekeepers in South Sudan come after Shen Liangliang, a U.N. peacekeeper stationed in Mali, was killed in an attack on a U.N. camp on May 31 that wounded five other Chinese troops. The three deaths, coming so close together, illustrate the increased risks faced by Chinese peacekeeping troops—particularly...

    Disarmists use the bandwagon fallacy, (argumentum ad populum) to promote citizen disarmament. In essence, the non-argument makes the claim; everyone else disarms their population - so we should do the same.  This is a logical fallacy. (snip) .. it is clear that from 1500 on, the major developments in gun technology came from Europe.Europeans underwent the black death shortly before the introduction of the gun.  The loss of up to a third of the population made the remainder much more valuable. The development of the gun, the Reformation, the Renaissance, much wider availability of literacy and printed material, all...

    The Archbishop of Canterbury said yesterday that Britain must confront its historic responsibility for conflict in the Middle East. The Most Reverend Justin Welby said ‘our own responsibilities must be faced and acknowledged’ and singled out Britain’s behaviour during the First World War and its aftermath. The Archbishop also pointed to the British Empire, the global trading system, American culture and even Western championing of women’s and gay rights as factors which cause ‘humiliation’ and disaffection among some Muslims.

    LONDON — High above a main thoroughfare in the city of Oxford, in an alcove framed by twirly columns, a statue of Cecil John Rhodes, the archimperialist who shaped Britain’s empire and the destiny of its far-flung subjects in Africa, peers down inscrutably on the people below. If you weren’t looking for it, you might miss it. In recent weeks, though, the statue has provoked an acrimonious debate about whether it should be removed, as was another monument to him last year, in South Africa, where he built his fortune and power before his death in 1902. But, as the...

    America has had to defend herself from TWO major theologies, not ideologies like communism (LENIN/STALIN), national socialism (NAZI) or facism (MUSSOLINI). These wars were and are caused by religious beliefs. One occurred in the 20th century, the other is occurring in the 21st century.

    Many of our policy debates and conflicts both domestic and foreign call on history to validate their positions. At home, crimes from the past like slavery and legal segregation are used to justify present policies ranging from racial set asides to housing regulations long after those institutions have been dismantled. Abroad, our jihadist enemies continually evoke the Crusades, “colonialism,” and “imperialism” as justifications for their violence. Yet the “history” used in such fashion is usually one-sided, simplistic, or downright false. Nor is the reason hard to find: as we read in 1984, “Who controls the past . . . controls...

    A raid by Russian Orthodox vigilantes on "blasphemous" artworks in central Moscow has highlighted the influence of traditional, ultra-conservative values in President Vladimir Putin's Russia. The Orthodox Church has long had close links to the Kremlin. And during Russia's stand-off with the West over Ukraine that relationship has only grown stronger. On 14 August a radical group called God's Will raided an exhibition of Soviet-era underground art at the Manezh hall, near the Kremlin. They especially objected to avant-garde depictions of Jesus Christ and Orthodox saints - a video posted online showed them throwing exhibits onto the floor and shouting...

Specifically I was hoping one of you well read Freepers can direct me to a good, excerpt or summary of Mahan's "The Influence of Sea Power Upon History". Something I can hand out in class. I have read his many articles but none of them seem to cover the major points of his theories succinctly. So I am wondering now if there is a good excerpt of his major work that you all could...

In an interview with the BBC on Thursday, Obama said he has delivered a "blunt" message on gay rights to African leaders in the past and the topic will be "front and center" when he visits Kenya and Ethiopia.

    What are we teaching the children? Students at the University of California, Irvine have voted to make their school a more “culturally inclusive” place by banning the American flag. The Associated Students of University of California (ASUCI) passed a resolution March 3 that would remove the Stars & Stripes along with every other flag from the lobby of a complex housing the offices of the student government. Last week the children of UC Irvine determined that: The American flag has been flown in instances of colonialism and imperialism. Flags not only serve as symbols of patriotism or weapons for nationalism,...

    o Jeb Bush might be running for president. The rest of the world must be howling with laughter. Apparently, the American political establishment isn't just afraid of new ideas, it's afraid of new people. It wants things so much the same, it's seeking blood guarantees, like the old Euro aristocracies that sealed military alliances with marriages. It's pathetic, and if Bush-Clinton turns out to be the general election menu, it's going to make kleptocratic paradises like the Soviet Union or the PRC look like vibrant democracies in comparison. And man, could anything be less exciting, less of an inspiration to...
