  • D’Souza: The Left Isn’t Just Tearing Down History, They’re Rewriting It

    Bestselling author and filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza spoke with Breitbart News Daily SiriusXM host Raheem Kassam regarding the left’s assault on monuments, including protesters who recently shrouded a statue of Thomas Jefferson at the University of Virginia in black. D’Souza said it’s important for conservatives to realize that it isn’t merely about taking down history, as some have claimed. “That’s actually not what they’re up to,” he said. “They’re not merely taking down history. They’re trying to promote their own very selective reading of history,” he went on. Said D’Souza, “What the left is doing is targeting the types of monuments...

    Progressive liberals can never win in the arena of ideas so they choose to fight in a different battleground, popular culture. Why deal with pesky facts that your ideology has never worked and only led to misery and death for millions of people? To the progressive mind, if you can't beat your enemy, then change the very fabric of his culture. By doing so, you'll lose many a battle, but you'll win the war. This is why progressives have taken over Hollywood and education. Sadly, many people today gain their knowledge through tv, movies, and the internet. True education has...

    Back in the spring of 2011, House Republicans had refused to raise the nation’s debt ceiling unless the president first conceded to massive spending cuts—a gratuitous game of chicken that put the global economy at risk and defied decades of bipartisan Washington tradition. At the time, many Democrats, including Bill Clinton, were urging Obama to go it alone. I’d raise the debt ceiling on my own, “without hesitation,” Clinton told a reporter. “[I’d] force the courts to stop me.” But the White House insisted that unilateral action was “not an option.” Instead, Obama spent 44 days trying to forge a...

    Since it now appears that the first two presidential debates did very much indeed have a resounding effect on the state of the race, Team O can’t afford to take any chances with Monday’s foreign-policy debate. Unfortunately, the Obama administration’s narrative on the president’s foreign-policy record has long been that all of those drone strikes and the death of Osama bin Laden have vastly deteriorated the strength and coordination of terrorism in the Middle East, and the attacks on the consulate in Benghazi and the death of four Americans on the eleventh anniversary of 9/11 put something of a damper...
  • Candy Crowley's bosses must be prosecuted - they knew about the collusion

    Think. Candy Crowley and Obama colluded in the debate. It's obvious. How would Obama know to tell her to "Get the transcript!" unless they had planned a response ahead of time on the Benghazi issue? Then, Crowley enabled Obama's lie about the topic and cut Romney off. The next set of questions that must be asked must deal with the supervisors who knew that the collusion took place prior to the debate. Candy Crowley did not have the authority to use her firm's equipment to video conference with the Obama camp about debate topics/answers (had to have video conferenced to...

You’re a monster, Mr. Grinch! Your heart’s an empty hole. Your brain is full of spiders. You’ve got garlic in your soul, Mr. Grinch! Well, that’s a pretty good beginning at describing how most conservatives feel about Newt Gingrich these days. More of that later. Of course, many of us felt this way before the 2012 GOP presidential primary began, and have been vindicated as Newt...

    At the Maldives' National Museum, smashed Buddhist statues are testament to the rise of Islamic extremism and Taliban-style intolerance in a country famous as a laid-back holiday destination. On Tuesday, as protesters backed by mutinous police toppled president Mohamed Nasheed, a handful of men stormed the Chinese-built museum and destroyed its display of priceless artefacts from the nation's pre-Islamic era. "They have effectively erased all evidence of our Buddhist past," a senior museum official told AFP at the now shuttered building in the capital Male, asking not to be named out of fear for his own safety. "We lost all...

    Musalman Times ^ | 13 October 2010
    To understand John Locke one has to understand what was going on internationally. He was born in an era of ascendant Islam. On the eve of Locke’s birth the Ottomans Murad IV (r. 1623-40) was the ruler of the Ottomans. As a young man Locke may have heard stories about the reign of Sultan Ibrahim (r. 1640-48). But Locke’s major years saw Mehmed IV (January 2, 1642 – January 6, 1693) reigning a largest Ottoman empire. In 1658 Greek mainland and islands fall under the control of the Ottoman Sultan. The Turks were knocking on the gages of Vienna in...

    t's an article of faith for the secular and Religious Left that Western civilization is a pox upon the planet. According to this not-so-new mythology, the earth and its indigenous peoples were essentially good. But European civilization, corrupted by Christian Constaninianism, injected corruption, conquest and genocide into largely pristine cultures. In 1990, the National Council of Churches infamously denounced the impending quincentennial of Christopher Columbus' "invasion" of America, which brought only "slavery, genocide, theft and exploitation." In earlier years, the church council, whose chief denominations had helped found the United States, had celebrated American democracy. But the NCC's ideologues, like...

    The Star-Spangled Banner is so threadbare you can see through tattered sections of its broad stripes and bright stars to the table where it rests at the overhauled National Museum of American History opening this week. The museum, which draws millions of visitors, has been closed for more than two years for an $85 million facelift. It will reopen to the public Friday with a three-day festival. Once overlooked by some visitors as it hung near the museum entrance, the nearly 200-year-old flag that inspired the words of the national anthem is now the centerpiece of the reinvented museum. The...
  • The Chutzpah of Bill Ayers

    Today is the publication date of the new edition of his book Fugitive Days, and now that the election is over, Ayers has chosen to speak out in his own defense in the pages of a democratic socialist newsweekly, In These Times. By choosing this vehicle, Ayers is skillfully engaging in his own sanitized rewriting of history. His effort is to paint himself as just another honest dissenter, a man whose valiant socialist principles have caused the media to unfairly demonize him as a terrorist. All he did in his memoir, he writes, is to go back to those “exhilarating...

    You're lucky to live through big history. And you're living through it. The explosion of joy in large pockets of the country Tuesday night was beautiful to see, and moving. For me, at the end of the evening, looking at live shots of the throngs in Chicago's Grant Park, I flashed back to 1960 and how it felt, as a child, to see that the grown-ups had elected a Catholic president. I can't say we stood taller—we were Irish, we already stood tall—but yes, there was a wave of feeling: "What a country," "What a development!" The other day, when...
