  • Who Are Terrorists Targeting?

    Thought Crimes ^ | 1-26-15 | Chris Shugart
    The recent terrorist attacks in Paris once again pose a question that seldom gets discussed. To whom are these attacks aimed? Is it Christians? Jews? Non-Muslims in general? Could it be Western democracies or Western society as a whole? As media pundits shed their crocodile tears and two-faced politicians dramatize their insincere outrage, every Islamic terrorist since 9-11 knows very well who their targets are. It is the Left. These terrorists may be monsters, but they’re not stupid. They know that their carnage and destruction must make an impression on those most likely to assist their cause: anti-war pacifists, progressives,...

    There is no doubt that many, if not most, conservatives could not care less what those on the hard Left have to say. I understand this, but I also know that the lies of the Left (and lies are all they have to push their demented, tyrannical agenda) should be noted and refuted, because if left alone, they will become the "truth" that dictates the policies of our nation. This will make the second column in a row in which I have featured some outlandish lies of liberal columnists. Last week, it was ludicrous claims from the New York...

    Victory! Something is changing. Some positive effects of the Charlie Hebdo atrocities are felt in Italy, with crackdown on the cult of Islam. First Massimo Bitonci, the mayor of the city of Padua, in the region of Venice (Veneto), Northern Italy, simply and clearly said: "No more mosques in Padua. The city council will not grant any more public space for the building of mosques and Islamic places of worship." Padua's councillor Marina Buffoni sent the city's police to Muslim meeting places, to confiscate posters and images of women in burka. She said: "These posters showed women completely covered...

    Haaretz ^ | January 27, 2015 Shvat 7, 5775 | Benjy Cannon
    Republican Senator Ted Cruz recently made a splash by agreeing to appear at a glitzy retreat for observant Jews. There, he will likely promote his hawkish foreign policy, but would be wise to avoid another of his favorite topics, the “Judeo-Christian" values which he says make up America's moral foundation. These values belie a dangerous, exclusionary worldview, deeply at odds with the universal American dream Cruz claims they represent. Politico, which described Cruz as “a likely Republican presidential candidate and vocal Pro-Israel hawk,” speculated that this was likely an early effort on Cruz’s part to woo Jewish elites and powerbrokers....

    Ever since the savage attacks in France, our pencil-waving, cartoon-pixelating media and Islamic theologian body politic have gone on an Islamic charm offensive. In the face of 24,935 jihadist attacks since Sept. 11, 2001, we are told over and over again that Islam, one of the world’s great religions, is peaceful and merely being distorted by misunderstanding violent extremists with no particular ideology. Whether or not you believe this, in spite of Islam’s supremacist goals and history, Koran-endorsed strategic lying and deception by way of taqiyya, the totalitarian theopolitical doctrine of Shariah that compels the systematic persecution of women, gays...

As I said on Facebook: "It's true that married people do not have to "breed like rabbits." But then, priests don't have to float around the altar like Liberace around his Steinway or resemble Judy Garland." Where is the Holy Father's concern over homosexual priests?

    “Repent, Believe, and Follow” (Mark 1:14-20)In the early chapters of the gospels, we track Jesus’ early ministry, as he goes about Galilee, preaching, teaching, and healing. As sort of a subset of his healing ministry, Jesus also casts out demons. And interspersed among these accounts, Jesus also gathers disciples to himself. And so it is that today and for the next two weeks we get such accounts of Jesus’ early ministry from the first chapter of Mark. Today we get a sample of Jesus’ preaching and his calling disciples. Next week we will see Jesus casting out an unclean spirit....

Even as President Obama gave his State of the Union address to the joint chambers of Congress Tuesday night, another domino was falling in Iran’s line-up of nation-state influence. Yemen’s leadership was on the brink of capitulation just as Obama was gloating over a failed foreign policy as being effective. Others have already pointed out how facts of Yemen and Somalia’s chaos contradict the president’s previous glorying in those states as testaments of his policy’s success. His idea as to what qualifies as success appear to deviate from that of...

  • King Abdullah’s Death Fulfills ‘End-Time Prophecies,’ Say Shiites

    Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz al Saud died on January 23 at the age of 90. Abdullah had been the de facto ruler of the nation since 1995 after King Fahd suffered a debilitating stroke; he was made king when Fahd died in August 2005. Some Shiite Muslims have long believed, based on Islamic prophecies, that Abdullah’s death would set off a chain of events that would destabilize Saudi Arabia and culminate in the rise of Imam Mahdi—the messianic figure of Islamic eschatology. Though Mahdi is not explicitly mentioned in the Koran, references to him appear in the hadith,...

    Anglicans have held to the Roman account of the priesthood as an order originating with Jesus' Apostles. This idea was beautifully developed by Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger (later Pope Benedict), who wrote: Of great importance for our question is the fact that Jesus gave His power to the Apostles in such a way that He made their ministry, as it were, a continuation of His own mission. "He who receives you receives me". He Himself says to the Twelve (Mt 10:40; cf. Lk 10:16; Jn 13:10). Many other texts in which Jesus gives His power to the disciples could here be...

    In Part 1 we considered the Anglican, Roman Catholic, and Eastern Orthodox accounts of the origins of the Church of England. The information provided in Part 1 was taken from official websites of each of these branches of the catholic Faith. There is only point on which all three accounts agree: Augustine was the official representative of Rome and was based in Canterbury. So it is that the Britons were claimed as a Roman franchise. That historical reality has had ramifications beyond Henry VIII and the Reformation. The Roman narrative has dominated the conversation for so long that the deficiencies...

    Depending on who is telling the story, accounts differ as to when the priesthood came to the British Isles. Anglicans tend to give this account: Christianity arrived in the British Isles around AD 47 according to Gildas's De Excidio et Conquestu Britanniae. Christians likely entered as metal workers and traders traveling long the tin route between Spain and Ireland. The earliest historical evidence of Christianity among the native Britons is found in the writings of such early Christian Fathers as Tertullian and Origen in the first years of the 3rd century. In the 1st or 2nd century, southern Britain became...

In the aftermath of the Kosher supermarket massacre in France, articles about the Muslim persecution of Jews in Europe nervously hover around the subject before swerving away to discuss the European far-right.

Broader European pieces obsessively focus on the Jobbik party in Hungary...

The masked, British-accented terrorist demanded a $200 million ransom payment from Japan within 72 hours. “You have proudly donated $100 million to kill our women and children, to destroy the homes of the Muslims,” the masked man said in English. “So the life of this Japanese citizen will cost you $100 million.”

    Minute by minute, the flood of Muslim favoritism cuts deeper through western nations Buffaloed by the age-old fear tactic, progressives seeking equality in an unequal world keep trying to tilt the playing field toward opponents armed with grenades and mortars. The result is anything but equality or non-discrimination, it is appeasement that has transformed into favoritism. No other religion except Islam compels conversion using militant thought-police. When mainstream Muslim clerics declare snowmen to be idolatrous, excuses that radical Islamic sects alone are pedantic can’t whitewash the Charlie Hebdo massacre as an isolated, extreme reaction to some cartoons.

Then four police officers commenced to “hold the woman down before a sword-wielding man slices her head off, using three blow to complete the act.” Basim screamed, “I did not kill!

    Dan from Squirrel Hill's Blog Shame on my fellow Jews for holding up commercial flights by refusing to sit next to women! I’m Jewish, and please allow me to say that it’s absurd that some Jewish men have caused commercial flights to be delayed by refusing to sit next to female passengers.In September 2014, the New York Post reported:Ultra-Orthodox Jews refuse to sit next to women, delay flightHundreds of Ultra-Orthodox Jewish men refused to sit next to women on an El Al jet from New York to Israel — and spent the 11-hour flight trying to bribe people to switch seats...

    Until 193 world States identify and eradicate their common enemies - CharlieHebdomania will remain an incurable illness with frightening consequences The sale of seven million copies of the magazine Charlie Hebdo featuring a front page cartoon depicting an image purporting to be that of Muhammad has brought forth its first bloody response from the Islamic world—Niger—where reportedly three people have been killed and six churches attacked and looted. Riots and protests in Algeria, Somalia, Pakistan and Jordan have added fuel to the rapidly growing feeling of resentment and hostility that Charlie Hebdo has inflamed. Niger’s President - Mahamadou Issoufou -...

    It started when 20 braver than brave, elementary-school aged girls sent skyward a yellow balloon, handmade, 75-foot-long rosary from Chicago’s Michigan Avenue bridge claiming the Magnificent Mile for Mary. The school girls had to carry their rosary, cross-first, through downtown Chicago. That was in August of 2011. “The reaction…. “Homeless people gave high fives. Street preachers burst into the singing of Gospel songs. Semi-truck drivers shook the streets sounding their truck horns in approval. (Canada Free Press, August 15, 2011). “A passerby tweeted, ‘A balloon rosary in the air. My faith confirmed:)’

    Mosques in Canada inciting hatred against the country On Wednesday, Samy Metwally, imam of one of the largest mosques in Ottawa, said the number of people coming to see him to convert to Islam has increased. Metwally says he is concerned about the numbers that have spiked since the October 22, 2014 terror attack in Canada’s capital. On that date, Michel Zehalf-Bibeau went to the War Memorial near the Parliament buildings and shot and killed Cpl. Nathan Cirillo who was standing guard. Zehalf-Bibeau then ran towards the buildings, commandeered a cabinet minister’s car, drove up to and then ran inside...

    People are dying, Islamic jihadists are killing those people, and Muslims are accusing the violence on anyone that dares to launch criticism of the violence committed by Muslims Islam does not apologize, does not assimilate, and does not accept any other law than Muslim law. Their goal is absolute domination. Anything or anyone that says otherwise is either lying, or have been fooled into believing lies. Freedom of Speech, according to Muslims, according to the socialists, and according to the liberal left appeasers, must be curbed. You are allowed to say whatever you want, as long as it fits into...

    Coach is Right ^ | 1/19/15 | Kevin "Coach" Collins
    Those who don’t live in the rural South find stories like this difficult to believe. We imagine an increased level of freedom in our idealized version of things in Dixie. Alas that’s not quite how things are. Recently the parents of home schooled children in Goochland County, Virginia had to rise up in fury to force the county’s school board to back down from a most intrusive demand. It seems surreal to even contemplate this, but the power drunk school board members had to be made to abandon their demand that home-schooled children and their parents be required “to justify...

    General Douglas MacArthur, in his farewell speech given to the Corps of Cadets at West Point on May 12, 1962, spoke of duty, honor and country and what these words entail for the professional soldier. General MacArthur spoke of the bloody battles and the heroic sacrifices made by the soldier on countless battlefields. But he added, "This does not mean that you are warmongers. On the contrary, the soldier above all other people prays for peace, for he must suffer and bear the deepest wounds and scars of war." This point is not understood by everyone. It is least understood...
  • Supreme Court Will Likely Support Homosexual Marriage

    The Supreme Court is going to once again review the issue of homosexual marriage. Last time around the Court punted on ruling whether states had the Constitutional right to outlaw such “marriages.” This time around they won’t be punting. Odds are by the end of June the Supreme Court will dictate to the country that sodomites have the legal right to marry. Our nation will finally have stooped to the point where we’re no better than Sodom and Gomorrah. Marriage was ordained by God in the Garden of Eden, it has lasted since that time as an institution involving one...

    In an emotion filled interview at the conclusion of Sunday's NFC Championship Game, Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson perfectly reflected the powerful optimism that faith in God brings.  For a young man headed to his second Super Bowl and on top of the NFL in only his third season, he also displayed the refreshing humility of a true leader of men and follower of Christ. His humble optimism is a key component to a faith in God which is often derided or dismissed by the non-believer, and far too often forgotten or taken for granted by the believer. For Russell Wilson and entire Seattle Seahawks team, much...

    Hunders of people took part in an anti-Muslim rally in Garland, Texas, on 17 January, outside a school building hosting a Muslim community event.A new bill introduced in the United States Senate demands that President Barack Obama move the US embassy from its present location in Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, as reported by the right-wing Times of Israel website. Sponsored by hardline Republican Senators Dean Keller of Nevada and Ted Cruz of Texas, the bill – the Jerusalem Embassy and Recognition Act of 2015 – is an updated version of previous bills that sought the same goal.
