    Obama Strategist in the Brazilian Presidential Campaign By Julio Severo The 2014 Brazilian presidential campaign had the involvement of an important campaign strategist of the president of United States, Barack Obama: David Axelrod. According to the Brazilian daily Folha de São Paulo, Axelrod had been hired to to help build Aécio Neves candidacy. Obama and David Axelrod The idea of Americans strategists working on Brazilian election campaigns is nothing new. During the 2010 election, Ben Self, who worked on the Obama campaign, was hired as a consultant for current president Dilma Rousseff. The unusual thing about David Axelrod’s involvement...

Malay Muslims have discovered dogs: KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 19 — A group of Muslims get acquainted with a dog at the ‘I want to touch a dog’ event at 1Utama’s central park earlier this morning. Around 200 dogs and their owners volunteered for the event, which sought to break cultural norms against dogs among Malaysia’s majority Malays.

    I believe in the timeless ideals that once made America the "last, best hope of mankind"! I denounce any form of intrusive and unilateral government that does not serve the rights and will of the people. I believe "We the People" can accomplish anything when liberty, hard work and accountability are non-negotiable. We can reform healthcare, without denying individual liberty and caving in to highly inept and wasteful socialized medicine. We can honor legal immigration, the promise that is America, without abandoning our borders and sovereignty. We can reward hard work and private enterprise, the innovative spirit of industry, instead...

    What are we to do with this latest school shooting tragedy?  Unlike the killings in Oklahoma City and Ottawa, Canada, this was no terrorist or self-proclaimed warrior carrying out a religious fatwa.  Jaylen Fryberg was a 14-year-old boy.  He could be my son, or anyone’s.  This is really a tragedy, every bit as much as the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary almost two years ago.  Except that by all accounts, Jaylen Fryberg was no mentally ill recluse.  He was an outgoing, smart, athletic boy who was named freshman homecoming king at his school. There are no words to erase the...

    Israel Matzav ^ | 10/24/14 | Carl in Jerusalem
    This New York Post piece by Eliyahu Federman is spot-on (Hat Tip: Victor Shikhman). Abbas called Jews visiting the Temple Mount (Judaism’s holiest place) a “herd of cattle,” with no right to visit or worship there. Jewish visits, he said, were a desecration that must be stopped “by any means.” “Any means” turned out to include the murder of baby Chaya. What’s most remarkable is the US silence on Abbas’ remarks. Neither Secretary of State John Kerry nor any State Department spokesman condemned Abbas’ words comparing Jews to cattle. Even the US embassy in Israel failed to issue a...

He had picked his way down crooked and chaotic alleyways, criss-crossed with water pipes and dangling electricity cables, along which open sewers ran as malodorous streams when the rain came. There, amid ramshackle houses of crudely- cemented terracotta breezeblock, he fell into conversation with the middle-aged...

    Too bad part of Trudeau’s being “authentic” and “being yourself” includes his hanging out at Mosques. Any day now Prime Minister Stephen Harper will be blamed by the lib-left and their running dog media hacks for this week’s terrorist attacks in Ottawa and Quebec. That’s because the lib-left, who always throw politics rather than effective stopgap measures at Islamic terrorism—which they refuse even to name—will move quickly to blame the terrorist attacks on Canada’s participation in the current combat mission in Iraq. The lib-left will do this even though there is documented proof on the books that terrorists in droves...

It is by far the largest outbreak of the deadly disease in recorded history. The media have jumped on the story for its obvious headline value, but at the same time they have served us poorly by misreporting, minimizing or simply refusing to report this administration’s glaring failure to protect American citizens.

The NUS considers the ongoing conflict with ISIS to be “Islamophobic”. You couldn't make this up. At least they recognise that ISIS represents Islam, and is not some totally extraneous group that for some hard-to-fathom reason has decided to associate itself to the "religion...

    No-one doubts that there will be people who hate Jews. The most obvious example is devout and observant Muslims, who are commanded by their religion to do so. They are also ordered to hate Christians, but for some reason the latter injunction doesn't evoke even a fraction of the emotion inspired by the former, despite the fact that an infinitely higher number of Christians than Jews suffer the consequences of this today. Incidentally - this is not relevant to the rest of the article -, I've found what I consider a better way to distinguish between Muslims of various...

Masks obscure.  Costumes disguise.  It’s okay for kids to pretend they are someone else, when they play.  It’s even fun to dress up.  But take a night when everyone is in disguise, and it’s all about secrecy.  And fear.  The purpose of Halloween is to scare and be...

Europe, she wrote, is becoming unrecognisable. Marseille is "no longer a French city, it is a Maghrebin city". Arabic ​is the first language spoken in Marseille, and French only the second. 95%...

    Halloween is a celebration of fear, secrecy, darkness, death, and mayhem.  It ruins children and coats the poison with candy.  Halloween is a holiday for the ignorant, a day set aside to honor a lack of knowledge, by people who don’t care enough to gain it.  Halloween is a feast of stupid self-indulgence.  There’s nothing positive I can say about that day, no matter how much fun it may be to dress up, join a bunch of other people, walk door to door demanding candy, then go home and gorge yourself on it while watching horror movies. In Part 1,...

    Had we not overcome the twin evils of Nazism, Communism, the consequences for the free world would have been cataclysmic. The consequences of defeat by this new twenty first century evil force would be just as dire Whether you seek its definition as an adjective or noun, you will find in any reputable dictionary two identifying components of the term evil: morally reprehensible and causing immense harm. The problem is that the first component and, to a lesser extent, the second are both relative terms. Whether an action is morally reprehensible depends on the moral code used to judge the...
  • Houston, You Have A Liberal Fascist!

    Do Democrats know the difference between fascism and liberalism? Apparently the Mayor of Houston, Ms. Annise Parker, is incapable of separating her own sexuality – her fragile sensibilities and biased opinions – from the rights of others who disagree with homosexuality and/or gay marriage. What’s even more offensive, or better yet bewildering, is that she actually demanded local pastors turn over their sermons and personal correspondence for examination. Excuse me?!!! For examination by the gay Gestapo in this Constitutional Republic known as the United States of America?!!! Is Ms. Parker a Pontiff, a Governor of Rome, Nero? Yes, Houston’s Mayor...

    It's the greatest threat of all time. Aside from Ebola, the DUH DOD has little else to do. According to the Daily Pest Beast, nurses fight Ebola more bravely than members of our military, so only 4,000 of our bravest and best boots on the ground are being ordered to Africa to fight it. Although the (non-Islamic) Islamic State is a bit of a nuisance now that Al-Qaeda is on the run, whatever we say or do about it might defame Islam. Since that would be "as bad as rape," we must not do it.[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4r05tdDB5NU] Video linkWe have much to learn from Secretary Kerry, even beyond the horrors of...

    Halloween is my least favorite time of year.  Every year, I get tired of telling people why I don’t observe Halloween, why my kids don’t dress up and go trick-or-treating, and why our porch light is dark on October 31st.  I am then accused of being a grinch, or a humbug, or a kid hater, or some religious nut, or a prude.  I am none of these things.  I simply see no useful reason why there’s a holiday called Halloween, or why anyone should celebrate it. Halloween is a celebration of fear, secrecy, darkness, death, and mayhem.  It ruins children...

    Coach is Right ^ | 10/16/17 | Kevin "Coach" Collins
    The same people who ask us to destroy our economy to satisfy their irrational fears of the global warming hoax, “just in case they are right,” now want us to expose ourselves to Ebola “just in case they are right” about how it is transmitted. Living as we did in the 19th century is the prudent thing to do, just in case the charlatan Al Gore is right. But closing the borders to Ebola stricken countries is an insult to Africans because they KNOW that they are right they tell us.. If we had an honest media it would be...

    Wednesday, October 15, 2014 The Savage Lands of Islam Posted by Daniel Greenfield @ the Sultan Knish blog The Grand Mufti of Saudi Arabia ruled that ten year old girls can be married off, because in his words, "Good upbringing makes a girl ready to perform all marital duties at that age." The Grand Mufti The Mufti, who also called for destroying churches in the Arabian Peninsula, is descended from Mohammed Wahhab who gave birth to Wahhabism and whose descendants have controlled the Saudi religious establishment, and through it Islam around the world. However for all his power and influence,...

    We reside in a culture where the cognitive dissonance gets ever more obvious, yet ever larger numbers are choosing not to see. It leaves one wondering whether to laugh or cry Have you heard the one about the Rabbi, the Imam and the fat chick? Me neither. In fact, it’s been so long since I’ve heard a good joke that I almost forgot what it feels like to laugh. It seems this is somewhat of a universal experience, as many of my friends and acquaintances have similar plaints. But then, what would you expect from a culture that carefully monitors...

    If you dare oppose the gay agenda, you will be destroyed. Progression of the gay agenda will only become more intrusive, more tyrannical, and more Orwellian To Christians, homosexuality is an unacceptable behavior to God, as well as to Christ’s Flock. Since the dawn of the Christian Church a couple thousand years ago (and prior during the Old Testament era), homosexuality has been taught to be an affront against God. Scripture reveals that homosexuality was a part of the reason for the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, and a sign of the perverse evil Earth’s inhabitants had turned to during...
  • Houston Seeks To Monitor Sermons Via Subpoena

    Five pastors in the City of Houston have been hit with a subpoena demanding copies of sermons and other pastoral communications. These pastors apparently oppose a City Ordinance which allows men to go into the ladies restroom and vice versa. A petition drive was launched against the “non-discrimination” ordinance, which over 50,000 residents signed. The City claimed there were “irregularities” in the collection of signatures and refused to put the issue on the ballot. As such a lawsuit was filed against the city, which then turned around and issued subpoenas to these pastors. Interestingly none of the pastors are parties...
