    Friday, December 19, 2014 Saving Comrade Castro Posted by Daniel Greenfield @ the Sultan Knish blog The Soviet Union did not have to fall. If Carter had won a second term and Mondale had succeeded him, the Communist dictatorship might have received the outside help it needed to survive. And we would still be living under the shadow of the Cold War. Carter couldn’t save the Soviet Union, but he did his best to save Castro, visiting Fidel and Raul in Cuba where the second worst president in American history described his meeting with Castro as a greeting among “old...

    The bogeyman in the Lindt Chocolate café won't go away because Australia's Prime Minister wants to put the term "Islamic State" out of sight and out of mind. The joint press conference given by Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott on 16 December after the siege at the Lindt Chocolate café in Martin Place had finally ended - was particularly noteworthy for certain viewpoints expressed by Mr Abbott during that conference. The Prime Minister - flanked by NSW Premier Mike Baird, Commissioner Colvin of the Federal Australian Police and Deputy Commissioner Burn of the New South Wales Police—made the following statement:...

    As long as Western leaders take to mics warning the unwashed masses never to refer to terrorism as terrorism, it’s going to be happy hunting for worldwide terrorists When terrorists look in the rear view mirror after their latest slaughterhouse jihad in any land, they clearly see the cowardice of all western leaders and plenty of opportunities in what millennials would call ‘wiggle room’. Aware right down to their AK-47 tingling trigger fingers, the terrorists of today and tomorrow know that they will never be I’D’d as ‘terrorists’ because the leaders of the countries they strike will never allow the...

    Writing for the Acton Institute, Joe Carter explains that, "The U.S. began imposing sanctions against Cuba after Fidel Castro seized power in 1959, nationalized the economy, and stole more than $1 billion in American assets on the island. Diplomatic relations between the United States and Cuba broke off in 1961 as tensions between the two nations increased after Cuba signed a trade agreement with the Soviet Union. Even though the Cold War ended, not much has changed in the relationship between Cuba and the U.S." Why is it that even though Cuba hasn't changed at all and is as repressive...

    Charting Course ^ | 7/5/14 | Steve Berman
    Politically, culturally, and theologically, American Christians should support Israel, as a Jewish state, as a free nation, and as the Holy Land set aside for God’s purposes.  Believing otherwise is counter to scripture, Christian faith, and American interests. Many Christians believe that since the Temple was destroyed in 70 A.D. and Israel was scattered, that God had no plans for Israel, and instead has passed his blessings to the Church.  Nothing could be further from God’s truth, and no belief could be more damaging and pernicious to God’s purpose in bringing redemption to the world. The thought that somehow...

    “The Great Christmas Gift Exchange” (Isaiah 61:1-4, 10-11) There is a game that is played at this time of year at Christmas parties all across the land. The game goes by several names, but I think most often it is called “Rob Your Neighbor,” and I’m sure many of you have played it. The rules may vary from place to place, but generally I think it goes something like this. Each person brings a gift that could go to anyone in the group, depending on how the game turns out. The gift is wrapped in a package, so you can’t...

    Tuesday, December 16, 2014 A Dangerous Holiday Posted by Daniel Greenfield @ the Sultan Knish blog Holidays are a calendar. They mark points in emotional and physical time. They remind of us who we are. Many of those celebrating Chanukah celebrate a holiday that does nothing more than celebrate 'celebration', the rituals and rites of entertainment, a special food, a symbol whose meaning they don't remember and a little family fun. Chanukah is many things but it is not a safe holiday. It is a victory celebration in a guerrilla war. It is a reminder that Obama's war on Jerusalem...

    This is a conversation I heard. She: "Do we have a card with Jesus on it?" He: "No, we only have Christmas cards". This exchange may go some way to explain the tragicomic results of recent research. A survey of 2,000 UK families carried out in early December showed that a third of children aged 10-13 do not know that Christmas celebrates the birth of Jesus. It’s shocking but hardly surprising, as Christ has been progressively removed from Christmas. But the problem does not concern just kids. According to the same survey, half the population considers Jesus’s birth irrelevant...

Johansen noted that, "There is too much evidence of the abuse of authority in certain dioceses and seminaries to dismiss Rose’s claims as baseless. It is still the case, even in a seminary with a reputation for orthodoxy such as St. Charles, that seminarians would not openly admit to members of the formation committee that they attended a licit (under the Ecclesia Dei indult) Tridentine liturgy for fear of being branded a “reactionary” and hounded out.

When one of the world's leading exorcists, Father Gabriele Amorth, was asked how one can tell if someone is possessed, he replied, "By their aversion to the sacrament and all things sacred." One of the clearest signs of demonic possession is a hatred for the Eucharist or the crucifix. And isn't this precisely what we are witnessing today? As our world immerses itself more and more in sin, the numbers if demon-possessed multiply exponentially.

    Why is the West richer than other parts of the world? What creates wealth? The scientific journal Science Nordic reports that a new PhD thesis tries to find an answer to these questions, very topical in times of bailouts and double-dip recessions and very challenging for economists, in Medieval history. And it discovers that it was the Roman Catholic order of Cistercian Monks that left a long-lasting legacy of cultivation of the virtues which made the West prosperous. ...One of the clues the thesis follows begins in France in 1098, when a breakaway group of monks formed a new...

    Obama does not want Americans to be free -- to think for ourselves, to have our First and Second Amendment and other constitutional rights or to reject any aspect of His radical transformation of our country and others into nations of which He, in His twisted way, can be proud. Part II of this multipart series deals with Obama's foreign policy. Series IntroductionIn an article posted on January 12, 2014 titled Might President Obama morph into an el Presidente Chávez? I offered parallels and dissimilarities suggesting that it had already started. That's no chip on my shoulder Where's MY parrot? When el Presidente Chávez took office in 1999, he began...

    There are those who conduct themselves with a clear penchant for humility, pragmatism, and those so-called leaders who yell "fire" in church because it’s the only way they can be saved. Mrs. Feinstein, I have neither the stomach nor the inclination to aid your vindictive campaign to politically exploit and berate our intelligence community, those patriots who tirelessly toil to protect ignorant and ungrateful hypocrites like yourself, so I instead would like to embark on a brief history lesson. Do you recall, Senator, when your accomplice and savior, Barack Obama, “spiked the football” and referenced (knighted) himself for the umpteenth...

    Jewish Issues: A Clarification to Christians about Their Perception on the Jews Beheadings, Crucifixions, the Inquisition, the Crusades, Pogroms, Spits and Socialism By Julio Severo Sometimes, I receive accusations from Christians, who say that I emphasize Muslim persecution against Christians in the Middle East, but I never mention how the Jews also persecute Christians. Actually, I have never published a single article on Jews in Israel beheading and crucifying Christians. On the other hand, I have already published many articles on Muslims committing such atrocities. The reason for it is not omission or some attempt to hide alleged beheadings...

    The Freedom From Religion Foundation is a perpetually offended atheist group. They unethically use the threat of legal action to bully municipalities into conforming to their secular demands or face MASSIVE legal bills. Fortunately, they just saw their efforts to stop a Christmas parade backfire… in a huge way! In Piedmont, Alabama, city officials were under so much pressure from the atheist organization that parade organizers were forced to cancel this year’s parade theme: “Keep Christ in Christmas.” However, that didn’t stop the people of Piedmont from expressing their Christian faith and showing their love of Jesus Christ:

    "God is good to me, he's bestowed on me a healthy dose of unawareness." Pope Francis, see here. “From the start I said to myself: ‘Jorge, don't change, just keep on being yourself, because to change at your age would be to make a fool of yourself.’” (From the same article). Dr. Dietrich von Hildebrand reminds us that, "The capacity to grasp values, to affirm them, and to respond to them, is the foundation for realizing the moral values of man. Now these marks can be found only in the man who possesses reverence. Reverence is the attitude which can...

    Published on American Thinkerby Enza Ferreri I'm not sure how conservative Americans will view the recently-published book Democracy as a Neocon Trick (Amazon USA) (Amazon UK) by Alexander Boot. It’s a very unusual work, in that, whereas critics of America are generally on the Left end of the political spectrum and those on the Right tend to unquestionably defend the “land of the free”, this is a criticism of the US from a non-Leftist viewpoint, indeed from a traditional, conservative, Christian, pre-Enlightenment viewpoint. I don’t agree with everything the author says about America, but he’s such a brilliant philosopher...

    Sunday, December 07, 2014 Fat Class Warfare Posted by Daniel Greenfield @ the Sultan Knish blog There was a time when fat was in and thin was out. Obesity was the privilege of wealth and being thin meant being poor. In simpler societies, before slumming became a romantic pose, there was nothing attractive about not having enough to eat. To be fat was to be part of the leisure class. Thin meant you were on the road to the poorhouse or to consumption, which meant your body was being consumed, not that you were the one doing the consuming. Then...
