  • How the IRS undermined America as a nation of laws

    Imagine that the Trump administration was singling out left-wing groups for discrimination, repression or punishment through both the revenue and justice system. I think we can all guess what the reaction would be: foaming outrage across the media, furious editorials and op-eds, dissection of Trump’s vicious sectarian and vindictive personality and the charge that the US had turned into a fascist state. Evidence has now surfaced confirming long-held claims that the Obama administration targeted conservative groups in just this way, and then tried to cover it up. Yet the media reaction has been muted, with coverage consisting mostly of brief...

    "The abrupt resignation of the national security adviser, Lt.-Gen. Mike Flynn, plunged the Trump administration into turmoil." Rarely can a much anticipated official visit have been so eclipsed by a convulsion taking place behind the scenes. People have poring over every word and gesture of the meeting in Washington between Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and President Donald Trump The encounter offered an opportunity to discover not just the new American policy toward Israel but also to get the measure of this unsettling president. However, the back story told rather more about Donald Trump than was on display at the love-in...

    Melanie Phillips: Science Is Turning Back To The Dark Ages Date: 04/03/16 Melanie Phillips , The Times Overplaying the threat to coral reefs is just the latest example of ideology distorting research According to a new study, scientists’ claims that coral reefs are doomed by ocean acidification are overplayed. An “inherent bias” in scientific journals, says the editor of ICES Journal of Marine Science, has excluded research showing marine creatures are not being damaged.Instead, he says, many studies have used flawed methods by subjecting such creatures to sudden increases in carbon dioxide that would never happen in real life.

    The below quotes come from award winning British journalist and best-selling author Melanie Phillips’ “The Guardian Angel.” “The Guardian Angel” tells the story of how Phillips started her career in British journalism on the Left in the late 1970s, only to become a stalwart Liberal culture warrior, as reflected in her positions on Islam, Israel, feminism, education, economics, environmentalism and a whole host of other issues that have earned her the wrath and contempt of European Leftists, particularly among media peers. 1.

For the Left, I am the target of deepest hatred. For my trenchant views, expressed in this newspaper, they call me ‘insane’, ‘reactionary’, ‘racist’, a ‘Nazi’, a ‘shroudwaver’, a ‘witch’ and a ‘warmonger’. I have been accused of ‘unmatched depths of ignorance and bigotry’ and being the ‘queen of mean’. It was even suggested (in a particularly extreme spasm of hyperbole) that I eat broken bottles and kill rats with my...

    The greatest satisfaction today over the re-election of Obama is not being felt in the Democratic Party. It is not being felt among the media, who are no longer objective observers but have turned instead into corrupt partisans who ruthlessly censored the truth about Obama and helped peddle his demonising propaganda about his opponent. It is not being felt among the gloating, drooling decadents of the western left who now scent a great blood-letting of all who dare defy their secular inquisition. No, the greatest satisfaction is surely being felt in Iran. With four more years of Obama in the...

    Weekend Libertarian ^ | 17 August, 2011 | B.P. Terpstra
    The politically-incorrect British writer Melanie Phillips was recently defamed for opposing leftwing groupthink (my guess) on the 2011 Norway massacre. But some welcome news arrives: A column by Heather Mallick on July 28 contained a number of inaccurate statements about the well-known British journalist and author Melanie Phillips. Ms. Phillips has expressed her horror at the slaughter at Utoya, Norway in a clear and unambiguous way, writing “there can be no excuse, justification or rationale whatsoever for the atrocity perpetrated by Anders Behring Breivik.” The column made reference to Ms. Phillips’ writings in an entirely misleading and inappropriate manner. The...

    So now the chickens have well and truly come home terrifyingly to roost. The violent anarchy that has taken hold of British cities is the all-too-predictable outcome of a three decade liberal experiment which tore up virtually every social value. The married two-parent family, educational meritocracy, punishment of criminals, national identity and many more fundamental conventions were all smashed by a liberal intelligentsia bent on a revolutionary transformation of society. Those of us who warned that they were playing with fire were sneered at as Right-wing nutters. What has been fueling all this is NOT poverty, as has so predictably...

    Last week British columnist Melanie Phillips wrote a blogpost at the Spectator entitled “Armchair barbarism,” discussing the brutal jihad murders of the Fogel family in Israel. Her references to the “moral depravity” of the Arab “savages” who committed the crime have gotten her in hot water with Britain’s hyper-PC Press Complaints Commission, which has launched an investigation. Phillips is being investigated, ironically enough, for writing that “the moral depravity of the Arabs,” as she chose to term the murderers of the Fogels and those in Gaza who celebrated those murders, “is finding a grotesque echo in the moral bankruptcy and...

    LONDON, February 2, 2011 ( – A prominent conservative UK columnist has said she received death threats after she criticized plans to insert homosexual materials into all subjects in the curriculum in Britain’s schools. Writing in the Daily Mail this week, Melanie Phillips said that she had been expecting a reaction, “which would amply bear out the truth of what I had written.” “The response, however, exceeded even my expectations.”For the last week, she said, “I have been subjected to an extraordinarily vicious outpouring of hate and incitement to violence” through emails, the internet and in mainstream media.“If the gay...

    Daily Mail columnist Melanie Phillips has defended an article which suggested that gay people were becoming the “new McCarthyites”. Her column, published yesterday, implied that homosexuality would become “mandatory” and accused gay activists of trying to “brainwash” children. The article was written in response to plans to make lessons more inclusive of LGBT people and became a trending topic on Twitter. Ms Phillips told that she would always defend gay people against “true prejudice” but maintained that the gay rights lobby intends to destroy “normal sexual behaviour”. In an email, she wrote: “I’m sorry if what I wrote has...

    I found this video, and the three listed in my first comment, at David Horowitz TV. I learned allot watching this video about how trying terrorist in civilian courts neuters our intelligence agencies and how woefully inadequate our civilian courts are in trying them. That's the reason why a terrorist recently was acquitted of almost 250 charges of murder and only a peripheral charge stuck. You'll learn what harm the Obama administration is really causing our country. It's almost as if he does not want us to win the so called war on terrorism.

There are also links to some of the best video presentations on why progressive secularists seem to be in bed with Islam.

    In a recent YouTube video, a de facto symposium of world-class scholars and political authors, including Paul Williams, Melanie Phillips, Bernard Lewis, and Mark Steyn, have united to articulate a grim and pressing warning to a seemingly insensible Western world. As Steyn tells it, the worldÂ’s most advanced societies are starting to go out of business, on the one hand refusing to assess and confront the gathering Islamic storm that threatens their survival and, on the other, losing out in the reproductive sweepstakes. Europe in particular is poised to suffer a Damoclean fate. Tracing an inverted family tree in...

    In both Britain and America, ideological prejudices are coming to undermine the rule of law. In a number of incidents, people who have committed criminal acts have been acquitted or had their cases dismissed purely because they represent a politically correct cause or belong to a "powerless" victim group.
  • What Daniel Pearl's decapitation means to Barack Obama

    Even given Obama’s ever more terrifying and lethal performance in office, his comments about the jihadi murder of Daniel Pearl, and in front of Daniel’s bereaved family, are simply astounding. This is what Obama said: ‘Obviously, the loss of Daniel Pearl was one of those moments that captured the world’s imagination because it reminded us of how valuable a free press is.’ Daniel Pearl was not murdered because he was a journalist. He was decapitated because he was an American Jew. Khalid Sheikh Mohamed cut off his head in an act of unimaginable barbarism, which was videoed in order to...

    review of The World Turned Upside Down, by Melanie Phillips Melanie Phillips, the columnist for the British newspaper the Spectator, has written a fine new book: The World Turned Upside Down: The Global Battle Over God, Truth and Power. Ms. Phillips lives up to her reputation for tackling political and social issues in this attempt to create an overarching thesis for why we have seen such absurdities as climate change fraud, political correctness run amok, unbalanced portrayals bordering on propaganda regarding Islam and Israel, and the war in Iraq. This is a challenge that Phillips meets head on and masters....
