    The Rotherham case which involved more than 1400 girls and boys being kidnapped and forced into prostitution between 1997 and 2013, is showing us that the United Kingdom is beginning its final decent into chaos. It’s starting to look like a movie about what the future will be under Islamist law; but the problem is “the future” is already here for the Brits. Over a period of 16 YEARS, British authorities–including the toothless police–stood by and did nothing about a “grooming and raping” ring preying on young White British girls and boys who simply disappeared. These people were paralyzed by...

    The other day I told my five year old boy a secret.  I told him it would keep him safe and help him the rest of his life.  He sidled up to me and put his ear to my face.  I whispered “never, ever, ever, ever, hit a girl.”  I made him repeat it.  I made him memorize it.  Later I asked him “what’s the secret” and he echoed back “never, ever, ever, ever, hit a girl.” There’s a girl in my son’s class, and I think she likes him.  At five, it’s hard to tell, but when a girl...

    You may, as in our case, openly state that we are not at war with the declared enemy. But, nonetheless, you are at war President Obama and his administration have been adamant that he is not taking America back to another war in the Middle East. Earlier this month, Secretary of State John Kerry stated, in a CNN interview, that our planned attack on the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) is not a war but is a “...very significant counter-terrorism operation…” We have begun air strikes on ISIS in Iraq and now in Syria. We are training and...

    This is a difficult column to write. It may earn me scorn from fellow conservatives who strongly trust in their hard-earned, stored provisions. But, it is a subject that has weighed on my mind. The question concerns Christians, not unbelievers. Is serious “prepping” something Christians should do? Prepping, as you may know, is the laying up of food, water, weapons, ammunition and other supplies for the event of future disaster, commonly referred to in the prepper community by the initials SHTF (“stuff” hits the fan). There are Christian prepper communities. According to one such Christian website entry: The prepper sees...

    Abe Lincoln once said, “How many legs does a dog have if you call the tail a leg? Four. Calling a tail a leg doesn’t make it a leg.” In order to avoid actually doing something about ISIS a terrorist group whose goals he probably endorses, Barack Obama has enlisted John Boehner in calling the Free Syrian Army (FSA) moderates. They are no more moderates than a dog’s tail is a leg regardless of what they are called in Washington. People on the ground, those who are not constrained by cowardice, have a different view of the FSA. The “Friends...

    JERUSALEM, Israel -- When ISIS leader Abu al-Bagdadi established a new caliphate this summer called the Islamic State, it sent shock waves through the Middle East. The so-called Islamic State became the first caliphate in nearly 100 years. When al-Bagdadi made his announcement, other Islamist groups, like al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood, condemned it. Regardless of the internal competition, the caliphate would be a dream come true in the Islamic world. "This dream holds together some kind of feeling that under the caliphate there is going to be a wonderful Islamic world," professor Moshe Sharon, an expert on Islam,...

And since this year September 21 falls on a Sunday, today we are celebrating the Festival of St. Matthew. Who exactly was this St. Matthew, you ask, and why should we remember him? Well, first of all, as to who he is, as I mentioned, we refer to him as St. Matthew, Apostle and Evangelist. Each of those terms, apostle and evangelist, puts Matthew in pretty select company. St. Matthew is an apostle, and there were only...

    A few weeks ago New York City’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade Committee (SPDC) made a cynical and politically correct decision to allow Gays to march in the parade under a banner proclaiming they are proud sodomites. No one else in the parade is allow to advertise their particular sin; there have been no demands from groups to march under a banner saying “Proud Irish burglars.” But none of this means much to the SPDC.

    Sunday, September 21, 2014 The Rationing Society Posted by Daniel Greenfield @ the Sultan Knish blog There are two types of societies, production societies and rationing societies. The production society is concerned with taking more territory, exploiting that territory to the best of its ability and then discovering new techniques for producing even more. The rationing society is concerned with consolidating control over all existing resources and rationing them out to the people. The production society values innovation because it is the only means of sustaining its forward momentum. If the production society ceases to be innovative, it will collapse...

    Our great nation was formed by people of diverse nationalities, primarily Europeans with differing religious identities. While some mistrust existed, occasionally igniting localized conflicts, the religions of these many cultures did not teach and engage in the extermination of people of differing faiths. The world is now facing such a religion of extreme intolerance. It has a toehold in the USA and most other western nations, but cannot be allowed to remain because a religion of extreme intolerance teachings that dictates the elimination by death of nonbelievers does not, nor ever will be compatible with our historical embrace of religious...

According to Brandeis, "She is a compelling public figure and advocate for women's rights, and we respect and appreciate her work to protect and defend the rights of women and girls throughout the world," said the university's statement. "That said, we cannot overlook certain of her past statements that are inconsistent with Brandeis University's core values."

    As you may have heard previously (if you live in the West), Muslim inbreeding is a HUGE problem that nobody in the Islamic world has had the courage to confront -or even acknowledge- due to it's outright endorsement by Muhammed, who led-by-example and married his own first cousin. But the (ongoing) genetic damage to the offspring in such marriages is severe... and naturally, getting worse within any society in which this nonsense is allowed to continue. Of course, the practice of first-cousin-or-closer marriage is banned in civilized, Judeo-Christian countries, as it has been since the days of Moses. Conversely, it was sanctioned...

    America’s foreign policy is, and has been driven by fatally flawed, intellectually dishonest premises and principles for more than a decade. As a result, since Sept. 11, 2001, our goals, tactics and strategies have ranged from wrong-headed though well intentioned, to wrong-headed and ill intentioned. If America continues to fundamentally misunderstand its enemies, let alone honestly define who they are, it risks losing its position as the world’s preeminent superpower, a calamity the likes of which may spell the end of Western civilization as we know it.

    If you’re raised on dogma and hate, can you choose a different path? Zak Ebrahim was just seven years old when his father helped plan the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.

    When I saw this commercial, I honestly thought perhaps the Army is now making ads specifically targeting homosexuals. (We all know that it's just a matter of time.) I'm definitely ---not--- saying that graphic artists are all homosexuals. However...

    Winston Churchill understood both. Instead of "blood, toil, tears and sweat," Obama offers a coalition of unwilling nations which reject our basic values of freedom. He intends to arm and train "moderate" Islamists who not only reject our basic values but are likely to help the Islamic State and its various cohorts and permutations. Islam is as Islamists doIs Islam the "religion of peace? Here's a video of a debate held nearly three years ago in New York City. [youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TFvklPpGZtA] Video linkWhile arguing that Islam is now peaceful, the debaters so arguing also argued that they hoped it would become so. One even urged those watching the debate to vote...

    Jennifer Dyer has an important and lengthy post on how President Obama's 'strategy' for stopping ISIS crumbled between his White House speech on Wednesday and Saturday afternoon. Some excerpts.... ISIS is busy neutralizing the Syrian factions that might make common cause with the United States.  On Thursday, Breitbart London reported that several dozen leaders of Syrian rebel factions opposed to ISIS, who were gathered at a meeting in northwestern Syria, were killed in a massive explosion on Wednesday. Huffington Post on Friday evening summarized reports that ISIS has signed a non-aggression deal with a separate group of rebel factions...

    Justin Trudeau is beyond the stage of simply being a joke. A Liberal government led by Junior and sympathetic to terrorists would be dangerous On June 19, 2014, Bill C-24 received Royal Assent and was passed into law. Referred to as the Strengthening Canadian Citizenship Act, the provisions are coming into force on staggered dates. Some of the amendments to the Citizenship Act took place immediately, some on Aug. 1, and others will come in on dates set by the Governor-in-Council.

    We are at war, President Obama; we are not combating terrorists, sir; we are not just counter-attacking our enemies, sir, we are... at war If my memory serves me right, I first stumbled upon the term demagogue circa 1959 at the time when Cuba’s communist dictator Fidel Castro first came into power. After one of Castro’s unending speeches back in the day, I remember my father referring to the dictator as the quintessential demagogue, which immediately triggered my curiosity as to the meaning of this word.

    “But We Preach Christ Crucified” (1 Corinthians 1:18-25) You’ll notice that the color of our paraments today is red--in other words, something different from the ordinary green that we use in the non-festival half of the church year. This means that we’re observing a special festival today, one that happens to fall on a Sunday this year. And this festival is called Holy Cross Day. What is Holy Cross Day, you ask? Well, let me tell you the background of this observance. Back in the early 300s, the Roman Emperor Constantine became a Christian. Then in the year 326, his...

    This is just beyond ridiculous. In his public statements, Muslim-born and -bred Barack Hussein Obama uses the Muslim terrorists’ own chosen name for themselves, “The Islamic State (in Wherever)” when talking about them–yet in his typical Orwellian, bald-faced Islamic taqiyya, he belligerently insists that they aren’t Islamic: “No religion condones the killing of innocents,” Obama lied, pretending that The Koran’s numerous commands and exhortations for worshippers of Allah to terrorize, slaughter, and behead “infidels,” as the way to advance the Muslim ideology and earn one’s way into paradise, did not exist. He doesn’t want you to look under the hood....

    Friday, September 12, 2014 Friday Afternoon Roundup - Our Hero Posted by Daniel Greenfield @ the Sultan Knish blog OUR HERO September 11 had disrupted the multicultural consensus by raising serious questions about immigration and Islam. It had also thrown away the consensus that the collapse of the USSR had made American military power obsolete. Obama had come to revive these consensuses and as recently as the last election dismissed Romney as a reactionary warmonger who didn’t understand the new world order. Obama had declared victory over an undefeated enemy. He had passed off a strategic withdrawal as a victory....

    Ever notice how some things seize Barack Obama emotionally more than others? Notice how Obama listens to some more than others? Obama's speech yesterday was seen by some as a "surrender." “By making such a point about ‘no ground troops,’ the President did two very bad things. First, he reduced the enemy’s uncertainty about our intentions. Second, he gave a global impression that he needed to promise ‘no ground troops’ to the American people because he thinks that otherwise his political position is so weak that he couldn’t get support for an air war. This is a bad mistake: it...

    The idea of land grants by Egypt - and also Jordan--now remain the last route to peacefully creating the two-state solution The two-state solution has suddenly come back to life. Thought dead and buried after Hamas had shown that it could indiscriminately fire rockets from Gaza into Tel Aviv and Jerusalem over a 50 day period—even forcing international carriers to cancel flights into Ben-Gurion International Airport for 24 hours—Caroline Glick reported on its amazing resurrection:
