    US Defense Watch ^ | October 23, 2015 | Ray Starmann
    For the last two years, the Islamic State, better known as ISIS or ISIL, has conquered and murdered and tortured its way across the Middle East, in a reign of terror, not seen by the world since World War II. ISIS is not a terrorist group, but rather a paramilitary organization, which is desperately attempting to become a nation state and one powered by fear, intimidation and death. The US has failed miserably in its attempt to defeat ISIS. In all honesty, it’s hard to defeat ISIS when you really aren’t fighting them at all. The US led air campaign...

    Slate ^ | Daniel Gross
    Wind power was so plentiful in Texas that producers sold it at a negative price. What? Photo by Spencer Platt/Getty Images In the wee hours of the morning on Sunday, the mighty state of Texas was asleep. The honky-tonks in Austin were shuttered, the air-conditioned office towers of Houston were powered down, and the wind whistled through the dogwood trees and live oaks on the gracious lawns of Preston Hollow. Out in the desolate flats of West Texas, the same wind was turning hundreds of wind turbines, producing tons of electricity at a time when comparatively little supply was needed....

    The Hill ^ | 8/26/2015 | Jesse Byrnes
    Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump on Wednesday said he would stop sharing tweets referring to Fox News host Megyn Kelly as a "bimbo," among other terms. "I have much bigger things to think about, honestly," Trump told conservative radio host Laura Ingraham. "They made a big deal out of that and I just don’t see — that was a retweet." Late-night tweets Monday discussing Kelly's appearance and one referring to her as a "bimbo" reignited tension with the network and prompted strong criticism from several Fox anchors. "I watched her show last night. She was very nice and I appreciated...

    4 Simple Questions ..... 1. Back in 1961 people of color were called 'Negroes. So how can the Obama 'birth certificate' state he is "African-American" when the term wasn't even used at that time ? 2. The birth certificate that the White House released lists Obama's birth as August 4, 1961 and Lists Barack Hussein Obama as his father. No big deal, Right? At the time of Obama's birth, it also shows that his father is aged 25 years old, and that Obama's father was born in "Kenya, East Africa". This wouldn't seem like anything of concern, except the fact...

As obvious as it is that the enemy of the United States and the western world is Islam and with the first name of Muhammad, the mainstream news media are trying everything they can to call this cold blooded murder anything other than Islam murder, despite the fact the core teachings of Islam and...

One of the speakers at that event, Dutch politician Geert Wilders, is planning to stage a Muhammad cartoon expo in the Dutch Parliament. Hannity asked Wilders if he is anti-Islam. "Well, I'm certainly not anti-Muslim, but indeed I believe Islam is a threat to our civilization," Wilders replied. "I believe that our country is based on values that are based on Christianity and Judaism, and that Islam is really a...

    Six years into his presidency, the debate is heating up as to where President Barack Obama's presidential library will be located, with four sites reportedly under consideration. These are: (1) At the bottom of an abandoned West Virginia coal mine. This one is considered appropriate given how Obama's regulatory push against "global warming" has caused and continues to cause losses in the U.S. coal industry, with all the associated unemployment and human suffering. It is related to Barack Obama's campaign pledge to stop the rise of the seas (which, by the way, he succeeded in doing even long before he...

    When a person has a disease that cannot be cured, do you think doctors should be allowed by law to end the patient’s life by some painless means if the patient and his or her family request it? At first blush, the idea that a euthanasia should be allowed seems to follow a logic. If a person is suffering and wishes to end that suffering then who has the right to tell them no? It is their life, right? Only some troglodyte Bible thumper could possibly deny a person the simple mercy of ending their suffering. In this way it...

    Man, the 12 minute speech Sarah Palin gave to the NRA convention is awful. It's just witless, red-meat blathering, delivered in that nasal whine of hers that makes it sound like she's chewing wads of tinfoil. For people who like this sort of thing, this is the sort of thing they like. Fast-forward in the video to the 6:30 mark, though, and listen to what she says about terrorists. It's part of a long harangue about lily-livered liberals, delivered in such a way that makes Archie Bunker sound like Cicero. Money quote: "Oh, but you can't offend them, can't make...
