  • America: Imagine the World Without Her (Review)

    08/01/2014 8:36:09 PM PDT · by Making_Sense [Rob W. Case]
    MSMB ^ | August 1, 2014 | Rob W. Case
    Imagine, if you will, George Washington leading troops into battle against the British, only to be hit by a sniper, killed, and leaving his soldiers without direction, and nowhere else to go but back into the hands of the British. There would be no America, no symbols and monuments (like Mount Rushmore, the Lincoln Memorial, the Statue of Liberty, and so forth), and thus nothing to inspire future generations to carry forth the progress of Liberty, equality, and justice for all. That said, imagine if the very spirit, convictions, and principles that led to struggle, bloodshed, and sacrifice, which eventually...
  • An Answer To Arab Girl

    1 August, 2014 | vanity
    In the past week someone posted an article from a young supposedly Christian Arab girl who calls herself Arab Girl. I attempted to respond to her article at the website that the article was posted from, but there was no way to make comments. Today I got an email from Marvin Rosenthal about the Israeli situation and at the very end, he has a CD available about the cult of so-called Arab Christians in Palestine. These people have a lot of support from American churches here because they claim to be Christian. Here is a link to the last page...
  • ‘I Don’t Think Any Country Just Hands Out Work Permits’: Ed Schultz Blasts Obama’s Amnesty AGAIN

    The Daily Caller ^ | July 30, 2014 | Brendan Bordelon
    (VIDEO-AT-LINK) Ed Schultz isn’t exactly known for being an independent thinker. But the MSNBC host bucked all other voices on his ultra-liberal cable network this week by opposing President Obama’s planned amnesty for millions of illegal immigrants, declaring on Tuesday that “I don’t think any country just hands out work permits to solve an immigration problem” and calling it “a real tough sell.” The union-friendly cable host already declared his opposition to the impending move on Monday. And during a debate with progressive radio host Mike Papantonio, Schultz doubled down. “I get a little bit nervous when I even hear...

    Scott Walker supports mass immigration, probably including amnesty As usual for those in the Koch family sphere, Wisconsin governor Scott Walker supports large-scale immigration. That is, a system where many more people could come here legally than do so currently.Walker is also not a strong and vocal opponent of mass legalization (aka amnesty, aka a path to citizenship). Earlier this year he made a comment suggesting that he supports mass legalization, but now he's attempting to dance around that comment but without ruling out mass legalization. Walker clearly isn't an ideologue on immigration nor does he make it a priority....

    Critics 'should neither be allowed nor enabled' to speak ill of Hillary. Political journalists are going to love the Hillary Clinton presidency. Judging by the way Team Clinton has responded to a series of books that are critical of the elderly homeowner and her philandering husband, it will be a real treat to cover them in the White House (again). According to Politico, for example, public relations representatives for the Clinton family have issued a joint statement condemning the recent publication of “trashy” books by Ed Klein, Daniel Halper, and Ronald Kessler, all of which reflect less than favorably...

    While the United Kingdom's National Health Service spends more than £50 million per year subsidizing breast augmentation surgeries it refuses to pay for a drug that can help extend the survival time for cancer patients. A stark contrast between the cases of Josie Cunningham and Reece Hawley has raised eyebrows. The buxom Ms. Cunningham's breast enlargement was funded by the NHS back in 2009. She currently is selling pay-per-view tickets at £10,000 a pop to see her giving birth later this month. Reece Hawley is a trainee teacher. NHS spokesman Howard Titman attempted to explain the seemingly anomalous treatment of...

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)On Thursday’s “Outnumbered” on the Fox News Channel, panelists Tucker Carlson and Kirsten Powers had a heated exchange over the ongoing border crisis and whether or not it was this country’s so-called Christian duty to grant those unaccompanied minors entering the United States asylum. Carlson questioned Powers’ suggestion as it being the Christian obligation of the country to accept these minors into the United States. He argued that it wasn’t “Christian” to shirk those cost onto the American people through the use of their tax dollars and called out church groups encouraging those fleeing Central American countries to seek government...

    World War II Database ^ | August 22, 2010 | John Radzilowski
    In 1944, Poland’s political situation grew increasingly precarious as Soviet forces moved into eastern Poland. In the West, unbeknownst to the Poles, the Allies had agreed to give Joseph Stalin a free hand in eastern Europe after the war. In Poland itself, the brutality of the German occupation continued unabated, with thousands dying every day in camps, summary executions and street round ups. Polish resistance forces were unified under the aegis of the Armia Krajowa, or Home Army (AK, pronounced “Ahh-Kah”). (The only exceptions were the miniscule Communist movement and a small group on the right, the ONR.) This underground...

    Jefferson County District Court Judge Sandra McLaughlin reportedly mocked Darryl Broaddus, who is African-American, for wearing a Barack Obama T-shirt in her Kentucky courtroom last summer. Broaddus was being arraigned in court over a drug charge when Judge McLaughlin made the bizarre remarks, according to the Kentucky Center for Investigative Reporting (video below). Judge McLaughlin stated twice that the T-shirt of the President of the United States of America was “not helping” Broaddus' cause. “He’s lucky to get out of here alive,” added Judge McLaughlin. “Did you see his t-shirt?

    Improved awareness of the "Religion of Peace" is needed. It has been claimed that President Obama recently decreed a Muslim Awareness Month. According to Snopes, He has not done that. Yet. He should, while there is still time despite multiple fund raisers, photo ops, vacations and golf outings. It would require only a simple stroke of His mighty pen. Should He find the time in His exhausting schedule, a joint photo op with Iranian President Rouhani and even His Esteemed Holiness Ali Khamenei, the Supreme Leader of Iran, would be appropriate. Due to His unwavering efforts in the Iran Scam to help them in their quest for Iran to get (or keep) "The Bomb,"...

    Here's a scary sociological experiment: If Obama announced tomorrow he was temporarily removing Republicans/Conservatives from Congress and the Courts to make the necessary changes to better America in the name of the "common good", what percentage of his party would oppose such a move? Being the rabid left and media actually believes the ends justify the means, would it be under 30%? Disturbing to say the least. If Obama said he was permanently baring Republicans from Government to grant Amnesty, fully implement Obamacare and gun control, address Global Warming, end Capitalism, amend the Constitution, and would subsequently place any and...

Ishaan Tharoor writing in the Washington Post wonders why: “The world is transfixed by the conflict in Gaza, as the death tolls of both Palestinians and Israelis killed in the fighting continue to rise. It has animated global public opinion and sparked protests in myriad far-flung cities.

    The stay of the permanent injunction ordered by Judge Frederic J. Scullin in the Palmer v. D.C. case has raised considerable ire among those who believe that the right to keep and bear arms has been denied in the District of Columbia for far too long.   Many thought that if constitutional carry were allowed for a period of time in the District, crime rates would have dropped.  Alan Gura predicted such a drop.    Many thought a crime rate drop would make it hard to justify a stay.   Some accused Alan Gura of being an accomplice of the establishment...

    After failing to attract al-Qaeda in Islamic Maghreb (AQIM), the group formerly known as the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) is now trying to gain the support of Libya's Ansar al-Sharia. An ISIS supporter recently endorsed the terror group on a global jihadist forum. On July 23rd, the militant urged ISIS followers to repost his comments on social networking websites, in order to push Ansar al-Sharia in Libya to swear allegiance to Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. Earlier this month, Abdelmalek Droukdel's al-Qaeda subsidiary refused to recognise the self-proclaimed caliphate and instead renewed allegiance to the parent organisation led by...

    During the Cold War, Israel was a pawn in a larger struggle between the US and the USSR. Now it is back to being a counter in a larger game. Israel’s function within the great halls of diplomacy was always as a lever on the Arab states. It was not an end, but a means of moving them one way or another. When the Arab states drifted into the Soviet orbit, the “Special Relationship” was born. The relationship accomplished its goal once Egypt was pried out of the Soviet orbit. It has lingered on because of the emotional and cultural...

    The House unexpectedly delayed a vote Thursday on the House GOP's $659 million border bill. A vote on the controversial measure was slated for about 1.p.m., but after concluding an hour of floor debate on the measure the House went straight into debate on highway funding. The move suggests GOP leaders are still whipping their members to try to win the vote. Most House Democrats are expected to oppose the GOP measure since it changes a 2008 law so that child migrants can be deported faster. Meanwhile, many conservatives do not want to provide the Obama administration with any new...

    Why can't we be just as free to assert our nation's sovereign right to affirm and defend our own borders? America is rapidly approaching the precipice when it comes to not just the quality, but even the availability, of health care in this country.

    It’d seem that the geniuses of the American left; see, for example, Hillary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi, John Kerry, President Obama and the entire US State Department, need to ask themselves a few questions regarding what’s going on in Gaza. How is a territory, supposedly under a blockade, able to arm itself with seemingly endless quantities of rockets? Who are the suppliers? Rather than offering a congestion explanation for locating these rockets in schools, why does the “smartest woman in the world” not ask herself this question first? Who, except that imbecile Nancy Pelosi, believes that a “humanitarian” organization (Hamas) stockpiles...

    After nearly fours years of caving-in and then approving payment for everything that Obama has wanted, Speaker "Blank Check" Boehner has proven himself to be Obama's primary enabler for Obama's DEMOCRAT BROTHERHOOD GOVERNMENT. The US House “Sue Obama” Bill defines Speaker Boehner’s political philosophy: TALK BIG, and DO NOTHING. This “Sue Obama” House Bill will be quickly rejected by the Courts because Judges appointed by politicians in the Democrat Brotherhood Government, (DBG), have promised to not interfere with the goals of the DBG. Speaker “Blank Check” Boehner is always willing to defer to the opinion of Judges appointed by Democrat...

    An armed citizen in Bradentown, Florida stopped an attempted carjacking when he fired a round at his own vehicle during the attempt.   Apparently there were two suspects.  One was in another car.  When the victim showed that he was armed by firing a shot, one carjacker took off in another vehicle, abandoning his accomplice, who fled on foot.   From bradenton.com: The victim said he was carjacked at gunpoint while sitting in front of the CVS Pharmacy at 4302 Cortez Road at 4:26 a.m. Wednesday, according to a release. The victim said he obtained a gun and fired at...

    The culture of death was given a win on Tuesday when a three-judge panel of the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled against the 2012 Mississippi law that requires abortion “doctors” to have admitting privileges at local hospitals. Therefore, Mississippi’s last remaining abortion mill in Jackson can continue to practice its baby killing. The Jackson Free Press reported on Tuesday: The Jackson Women’s Health Organization was unable to obtain the privileges and challenged the constitutionality of the law in court and succeeded in obtaining an injunction against the law in federal court. The court only found the law unconstitutional...

    In the interest of simplifyin’  stuff, we’ve reformulated the job responsibilities of the President of the United States to just “helpin’ people.” And sure enough, the hateful Republicans object to that too: “They have announced that they are going to sue me for taking executive actions to help people. They’re mad because I’m doing my job. Stop being mad all the time. Stop just hatin’ all the time. Let’s get some work done.” Apparently we haven’t been able to goad the do-nothing GOP into impeachment procedures yet, butt at least they sued Big Guy. No problemo - we can work...

    Late last year the Republican response to who would run against the Cuomo juggernaut was “we will see if we can find someone with enough money to run”. Since that time no one with the resources has decided to take up as Chris Christie called “the lost cause”. But one man without the resources but the balls to take on Andrew Cuomo has emerged. Unless you live in the lower Hudson Valley you might not have heard of Rob Astorino.
