  • What ‘The Apprentice’ Taught Donald Trump About Campaigning

    The New York Times ^ | October 9, 2015 | James Poniewozik
    Donald J. Trump, like any good reality TV protagonist, does not inspire neutral opinions. He is a savior or a disaster; a bigot or a patriot; a truth-teller or a buffoon; a commanding front-runner or a bubble on the verge of bursting. On one point, at least, there is something like political pundit consensus: that Mr. Trump’s abrasive, celebrity-driven, Don Ricklesian candidacy is unprecedented. And it is unprecedented, if your television-watching is limited to C-Span and CNN. But if you’ve watched reality TV over the past decade or two, you’ve seen it plenty. You’ve seen it in Richard Hatch and...
  • Why Singles Rights And Same-Sex Marriage Will Abolish All Marriage

    The Federalist ^ | Oct 29, 2014 | Stella Morabito
    I recently argued in The Federalist that same-sex marriage is merely a vehicle to abolish all civil marriage, and with it, all family autonomy. I predicted that “singles’ activists” would try to finish the job by using those same “marriage equality” arguments to claim that all civil discriminates against singles and therefore should be abolished. Lo and behold, a singles’ activist, [] Bella DePaulo, confirmed exactly that []: “Morabito says that what I really want is ‘to abolish marriage without saying so.’ That’s not quite right. I’m happy to say so.” As for me connecting “singles’ rights” with the same-sex...

    Last night, two heavily armed gunmen, equipped with AK-47s and drum-type, high capacity magazines were shot and killed by alert police after they opened fire on an unarmed security guard assigned to protect a First Amendment, Free Speech event in Garland Texas. The event was organized by the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI), headed by Pam Geller and featured drawings and depictions of Mohammed, believed to be a prophet & messenger of God by devout Muslims. As underscored by the Charlie Hebdo attacks, Muslims have resorted to terrorism and murder to prevent anyone from displaying imagery of Mohammed.

    Francesca Hogi, 40, had settled into her aisle seat for the flight from New York to London when the man assigned to the adjoining window seat arrived and refused to sit down. He said his religion prevented him from sitting beside a woman who was not his wife. Irritated but eager to get underway, she eventually agreed to move.
  • Conservative NYT Columnist on What to Expect When Gay Marriage Becomes Legal in 50 Sates

    Christian Post ^ | 03/03/2013 | Anugrah Kumar
    A conservative New York Times columnist, Ross Douthat, writes that it's perhaps only a matter of time when same-sex marriage becomes legal in all 50 states, ruminating on what it might be like for those who believe in traditional marriage when that happens. The Supreme Court is likely to be "forced to acknowledge the logic of its own jurisprudence" on same-sex marriage and redefine marriage to include gay couples in all states, writes Douthat, former senior editor at The Atlantic, in an op-ed piece for the Times. This will finish the national debate but the country will remain divided, with...

    The NY Times has lost all of its credibility. All of it. Not long ago they made the decision to endorse all of Barack Obama's lies and now has gone fully into the Hillary Clinton tank. David Kirkpatrick's article "A Deadly Mix in Benghazi" could be summarized thusly: Kirkpatrick: "Mr. al Qaeda, were you involved in the Benghazi attack?" Al Qaeda: "No we were not." Kirkpatrick: "Who attacked the consulate?" Al Qaeda: "Hooligans" Kirkpatrick: "Why?" Al Qaeda: "It was that video." Kirkpatrick: "Thank you" That's pretty much it. It's pathetic and a painfully obvious attempt to vindicate Hillary Clinton. It has...

    NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    MISSPEAK 1: to speak (as a word) incorrectly 2: to express oneself imperfectly or incorrectly [e.g., claims now that he misspoke himself] In an editorial of today, the New York Times couldn't bring itself to say the simple truth: that President Obama lied when he repeatedly assured Americans that, under Obamacare, if they liked their healthcare insurance policies they would be able to keep them. The most the Times was able to admit was that [emphasis added throughout] "Mr. Obama clearly misspoke when he said that." Misspoke. Yes, of course. As you see from the Merriam Webster definition above, the...

    NYT ^ | 4 Sep 13 | WILLIAM J. BROAD
    A new study of images apparently from the Syrian attack last month concludes that the rockets delivering toxic sarin gas to neighborhoods around Damascus held up to 50 times more nerve agent than previously estimated, a conclusion that could solve the mystery of why there were so many more victims than in previous chemical attacks. The study, by leading weapons experts, also strongly suggests that the mass of toxic material could have come only from a large stockpile. American, British and French officials have charged that only the Syrian government and not the rebels was in position to make such...

    Today the Supreme Court heard oral arguments for about 80 minutes in Hollingsworth v. Perry, which is the lawsuit regarding California's Proposition 8. Two gay couples brought suit on the grounds that the Equal Protection clause of the 14th Amendment prohibits the State of California from defining marriage as the union of a man and a woman. Since the State of California refuses to defend Proposition 8, opponents of gay marriage sought to enforce it in Hollingsworth v. Perry. Generally, citizens do not have legal standing to enforce laws with which they agree. Several justices expressed doubt that gay marriage...

    Crisis Magazine ^ | March 21, 2013 | George Neumayr
    Proponents of gay marriage, as they eagerly anticipate the Supreme CourtÂ’s examination of the issue next week, are chortling over recent polls that suggest the American publicÂ’s resistance to it is fast eroding. They pointed this week to a Washington Post-ABC News poll in which 58 percent of Americans support gay marriage and 37 percent oppose it. This is an almost exact reversal from a decade ago, they say, when polls then showed 55 percent of Americans opposed gay marriage and 37 percent supported it.Meanwhile, establishment Republicans, who have always been ambivalent about the issue, appear ready to wave the...

    American Thinker ^ | 02/08/2013 | Janet Tassel
    One afternoon in May, 1990, Robert Kosilek murdered his wife, Cheryl. Brutally. He strangled her with piano wire, virtually decapitating her, and left her body in a mall parking lot in a suburb of Boston. Since his conviction, Kosilek, now 64, has been serving a life sentence at Norfolk, a high-security prison for men. For years Kosilek has been a member of the "sisters," a particularly violent, sexually deviant subset of the prison population. But in 1993, Kosilek decided to do a complete makeover, changing his name to Michelle, letting his hair grow long, and dressing as a woman in...

    Newser) – These days, it isn't that weird for a baby to have two mothers—but how about two mothers and a father? One 23-month-old girl now legally has just such a family, after a Miami-Dade judge approved a settlement in which her biological mother, her mother's wife (the two married in Connecticut), and the man whose sperm made it all possible will all sign her birth certificate as parents, the Miami Herald reports. "We're creating entirely new concepts of families," says the dad's lawyer.

    As the new 2013-2014 legislative session begins, MassResistance is fighting back! We have filed and are supporting several badly needed bills. Most of them are meant to restore rights to parents and citizens, and to stop the increasingly militant homosexual and transgender movement which is targeting vulnerable children in the public schools (while parents helplessly watch from the sidelines). 1. Effective Parents' Rights Opt-In Bill Docket #: HD3179 2. Protect children from intrusive school surveys on personal issues Docket #: HD2794 3. Repeal the "Buffer Zone" around abortion clinics Docket #: HD1791 4. Eliminate the "Commission on GLBT Youth" Docket...

    The Thinking Housewife ^ | July 20, 2012 | Laura Wood
    HERE is an editorial by the mendacious, corrupt, child-hating New York Times on the affirmation this week by the Boy Scouts of America of its longstanding policy of excluding homosexuals as pack leaders or scouts. The headline is “The Boy Scouts 19th Century Decision,” as if the nineteenth century is somehow by definition detestable. (This implies that much of what we do is execrable. Do you own property? Do you read newspapers? Repent, those are nineteenth century things to do.) Here it is, with comments inserted: It is impossible to square the Boy Scouts of America’s values of openness, strong...
  • Fierce Battle for Marriage Rages in Illinois

    The militant homosexual radicals have set their sites on the State of Illinois in their quest to pervert the definition of marriage. In their campaign to overturn the law in Illinois that correctly defines marriage as between a man and a woman, they are maligning the Christian conservatives who are defending what any rational person knows—that there is not, and can never be, any such thing as a homosexual marriage union. This week, I got two e-mails from Brad Wallace, who works with Peter LaBarbera at Americans for Truth About Homosexuality (AFTAH). One e-mail was from the Illinois Family Institute,...

Spokesman Rabbi Yehuda Levin declared that “Chanukah commemorates the defeat of the Syrian Greek efforts to impose their pagan culture on the Jewish people. The Jews rejected the intergenerational homosexual activity which was a prominent aspect of...

    CONCORD, N.H. — As Rick Santorum sprinted Thursday through New Hampshire, a state with fewer social conservatives than Iowa, his views on social issues like same-sex marriage were quickly challenged. A midday event in front of a gathering of college students here turned into a testy exchange in which Mr. Santorum compared allowing gay couples to marry to polygamy, apparently equating the two as equally undesirable. “If you’re not happy unless you’re married to five other people, is that O.K.?” he asked. The students booed Mr. Santorum during the 10-minute exchange and loudly booed when he left the room. The...

    Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is a conservative. At least, that is the point the former Massachusetts governor is trying to make with a new TV ad airing in Iowa. The new ad, titled “Conservative Agenda,” shows Romney speaking on the stump and meeting with voters, as he makes a series of commitments. “I am going to do something to government. I’m going to make it ‘Simpler, and Smaller, and Smarter,’” Romney says. “Getting rid of programs, turning programs back to states, and finally making government itself more efficient.” Romney pledges to repeal President Obama’s health care overhaul and balance...
