    Friday, May 22, 2015 De-Islamization is the Only Way to Fight ISIS Posted by Daniel Greenfield @ the Sultan Knish blog Obama can’t defeat ISIS with soft power, though ISIS could beat him with soft power assuming its Caliph ever decided to agree to sit down at a table with John Kerry without beheading him. Iran has picked up billions in sanctions relief and the right to take over Yemen and raid ships in international waters in the Persian Gulf just for agreeing to listen to Kerry talk for an hour. And that might be a fair exchange. As bad...

    Via Breitbart. Thanks to Fox News’s rules, this is the guy who might take Bobby Jindal’s spot at the first GOP presidential debate in August. He’s ranked in the top five in more than one Republican 2016 poll, no doubt by dint of pure name recognition. If he decides to run — which is unlikely, but work with me here — he’ll probably be one of the 10 who make the cut for the debate. And that’ll turn it into the Trump show for the media, no matter how eager GOP voters might be to hear, say, Rubio go at...

    If Samuel Adams were to time-travel and suddenly appear on Purchase Street in Boston, a block or two from South Station, he wouldn’t recognize much of his old city.  His church however, is still there (the Old South Congregational Church, now known as the Old South Meeting House, one of the birthplaces of the American Revolution). When Adams was in Boston, it was a Christian city.  His alma mater, Harvard College, trained mainly ministers of the Gospel—but also quite a few politicians like himself.  Adams would not recognize Boston in any sense as a spiritual place these days.  The shells...

    After hundreds of millions of U.S. dollars poured into the Irish nation by pagan Americans, homosexuality will win a national referendum When the barbarian hordes descended on Europe in the fourth and fifth centuries, crushing underfoot what was left of cultural antiquity, it looked as if civilization was at an end. Irish monks, in their monasteries and scriptoriums, preserved the writings from antiquity by transcribing them for posterity. They kept the classics alive, safe in their isolation, keeping a secure touchstone to the civilization their faith had transformed. For this reason, the Irish are largely credited by historians with saving...

Documents obtained by Fox News reveal that U.S. intelligence agencies were “fully aware” weapons were being moved from Benghazi to Syria before the attack on Sept. 11, 2012, that claimed the lives of ambassador Christopher Stevens,Navy SEALs Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods, and diplomat Sean Smith. The documents also put the lie to President Obama’s assertion that the rise of ISIS caught the administration “by surprise.” “Newly released documents show...

    Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has suggested that a key litmus test in evaluating prospective Supreme Court appointees would be their willingness to challenge "the right of billionaires to buy elections." Presumably, a suitable judge would indicate a desire to overturn the Citizens United decision that struck down a ban on political expenditures by corporations and unions ruled to violate the First Amendment protection of free speech – a case coincidentally centered on Citizen United’s attempt to advertise for and air a film critical of none other than Clinton. In light of recent allegations swirling around the presidential favorite, Clinton’s...

    Will someone please inform our so-called President it's not 1860 and that neither him or Michelle Obama have ever been slaves. Even at the height of slavery during the Antebellum period, less than 2% of the population were slave owners; which by the way, included black Americans amongst their infamous ranks. This of course is omitting the trivial facts African tribes sold their brethren into bondage for everyday trinkets and that nearly 400,000 white men died to procure their freedom. I'm also guessing our myopic pastor of prejudice forgot that the KKK was specifically forged as the terrorist arm of...

How did society come to a point in which a person can sue for forced abortions on minority children and be lauded as an advocate? Isn't this something that anyone on the most basic of levels, and I'm talking real basic over here, should find loathsome and disgusting?

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was not, but a new book gives insight into how she might think about the issue given her support as Secretary of State of a policy put forth by the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) at the UN that comes into direct conflict with the First Amendment.

Abolitionists claim they hold to the tenants outlined by Abolish Human Abortion (AHA), and do not want to be linked in any way to the pro-life movement because they favor incremental strategies to end abortion.

    Head-in-the-sand approach to Islamic terror There are several “laws” such as Godwin’s Law. Godwin’s Law is named after American lawyer and author, Mike Godwin, and postulates the longer a discussion on the Internet goes, the chance that one of the participants will compare someone or something to Hitler or the Nazis increases. A new and similar law is needed; perhaps it could be called “Ortiz’ Law.” Ortiz’ Law would hypothesize that the longer a person discusses Islamic terrorism, the more certain it will be that that person will say the act or acts in question have absolutely nothing to do...

The biggest declines are in Mainline Protestant and Catholic denominations.  If you’re a Methodist, Lutheran, Presbyterian (PCUSA), Episcopal, Congregationalist, or Disciple of Christ, you’re becoming a rarer commodity.  And that’s a good thing....

    In the latest chapter of the left’s ongoing campaign to immortalize the grandfather clause of social justice, but more specifically to compensate America along racial lines, comes the politically convenient creation of “White Privilege”. Because the word “racism” obviously doesn’t denote enough singular intent to indict white America as the sole purveyors of hate, victimization has now evolved into blaming the pale subjects of suburbia as the greatest impetus for urban crime, poverty, civil unrest, and societal division. If “White Privilege” is truly designed to infer advantage or favoritism, then why did I grow up in a blue collar home,...

Since the last time such a poll was taken in 2008, the percentage of Americans identifying as Christians has dropped from 78 percent to 70 percent. Yes, 70 percent is still an overwhelming majority, but an 8 percent drop in just seven years is pretty big.

    Sunday, May 10, 2015 It Takes a Good Guy with a Gun to Defend Freedom of Speech Posted by Daniel Greenfield @ the Sultan Knish blog When two terrorists in body armor and carrying assault rifles came for a roomful of cartoonists and fans of freedom of speech in Texas, the media took the side of the terrorists. CAIR, a Muslim Brotherhood front group with ties to terrorists, spun the attack by claiming that the contest had been intended to “bait” the terrorists. The media quickly picked up the “bait” meme. The New York Times, the Atlanta Journal Constitution, the...

    Thursday, May 07, 2015 The Fire Burns Posted by Daniel Greenfield @ the Sultan Knish blog The circle of men whirls around the fire, hand in hand, hand catching hand, drawing in newcomers into the ring that races around and around in the growing darkness. A melody thumps through the speakers teetering unevenly with the bass, the sound is both old and new, a mix of the past and the present, like the participants in the dance, the traditional garments mixing with jeans and t-shirts until it is all a blur. It is Lag BaOmer, an obscure holiday to most,...

    Pamela Geller endorsed Ted Cruz for President Sunday, but hardly anyone noticed. The activist and outspoken critic of Islamic extremists made the endorsement in a Sunday blog post titled "Ted Cruz on Jihad in Texas: ‘Thankfully one police officer helped them meet their virgins.’” Though that headline doesn't offer a clue about her decision to back the Senator from Texas in the 2016 election, she didn't bury the political lede. Here are her first two paragraphs: I endorse Cruz for 2016. The media is going to try to use this against him. But they have been thoroughly discredited in the...

    I love Pamela Geller. However, when Bill O'Reilly and conservative Laura Ingraham said it was foolish of Pam to insult over a billion Muslims by hosting a “Draw Muhammad” contest, I thought perhaps they were right. Muslims live under an Islamic legal system called sharia law, which prohibits drawing any image of their prophet, Muhammad. Rush Limbaugh sided with Pamela. Rush pointed out that while the mainstream media and pundits want us to be sensitive to this rule of sharia, that same media flaunts and promotes homosexual marriage, which offends Muslims. Muslims put homosexuals to death. My feisty part-Cherokee, mostly...

    When are Americans going to realize that the Islamists do not need any provocation? When are we going to start acting like we are at war? A good first step would be to stop inviting Muslims to immigrate to America. Does anyone remember what happened on September 11, 2001? Or is it just “ancient history” at this point? Some three thousand totally innocent Americans were murdered by a sneak attack on the Twin Towers in New York and the Pentagon in Washington, D.C. Who did it? The same murderous Islamists who attacked an event in Garland, Texas, to focus attention...

    If we abandon Godliness, we will surely abandon liberty, for without morality, we are incapable of freedom Benjamin Franklin said that only a “virtuous people are capable of freedom.” Franklin understood the importance of a moral society, and how secularism may seem free on the surface, but that a society that abandons the Laws of Nature by Nature’s God ultimately leads themselves to bondage, under human masters and tyrannical statism. The Founding Fathers recognized the truth about human nature, primarily viewing it from a classical Christian angle. Our rights are self-evident, but so is the fact that while humans are...

    Broadcast networks have taken their cues from The New York Times, except when it publishes stories about babies that they don’t like. A study released Wednesday by The New England Journal of Medicine documented thousands of premature births to discover a small number of babies born at 22 weeks, with medical treatment available to them, survived with few health implications. The findings that could “affect the abortion debate” landed on the front page of the May 7 New York Times and garnered attention from NBC’s Today. Other media, like ABC and CBS, stayed silent during their morning and evening news...

    Global warming/climate change hoax In a recent Daily Caller article, Michael Bastach took note of “25 Years of predicting The Global Warming ‘Tipping Point’.” This is the message that the Earth is warming rapidly and, if we don’t abandon the use of fossil fuels for power, it will arrive to wreak destruction on the human race and all life on the planet. It is astounding how many past and present world leaders are telling everyone this despite the total lack of any real science, nor any actual warming—the Earth has been in a natural cooling cycle since 1997! At the...
