  • What if Robert Bork was nominated to the High Court?

    06/05/2017 9:59:13 AM PDT · by Mafe · 30 replies
    With Trump asking the Supreme Court to uphold his travel ban, I know for certain that if the case is heard before Anthony Kennedy retires, the decision will be in his hands. Needless to say I am very doubtful that we I can count on Kennedy to uphold it. That made me think - how would the 21st century be different had Robert Bork been nominated to the Supreme Court instead of Kennedy? Its obvious that SSM never would have been legalized via the court, and Roe vs. Wade would've stood a good chance of being overturned. What other decisions...
  • Robart: Student Expelled for Sexual Misconduct Can’t Defend Himself

    02/04/2017 12:41:18 PM PST · by springwater13 · 24 replies
    Remember Amherst College student "John Doe," who was expelled for sexual misconduct, even though he had good reason to believe that his accuser had actually assaulted him? A judge recently blocked Doe's attempt to subpoena his female accuser's text messages on grounds that re-litigating the matter "would impose emotional and psychological trauma" on her. Consider the implications of this decision. According to Seattle District Judge James Robart, a student who believes Amherst violated his due process rights, wrongfully expelled him, and ignored subsequent evidence that his accuser, "Sandra Jones," was the actual violator of the college's sexual misconduct policies, does...

    Video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m66k4WBCqA4 On June 5th, 1968, New York Senator Robert Francis Kennedy was shot and killed by Sirhan Sirhan, an Arab terrorist angered by Kennedy’s support for an arms deal to Israel. The assassination, which took place in the midst of the tumultuous 1968 Democratic primary season, came just two months after the murder of Martin Luther King Jr. and less than five years after the killing of Kennedy’s older brother, President John F. Kennedy. Often lost in the larger story of RFK’s assassination, however, is his pro-Israel legacy and the centrality of his pro-Israel views in Sirhan’s motive. On...
  • IS THERE ROOM IN THE CATHOLIC CHURCH FOR THOSE WHO DON’T BELIEVE ISLAM IS A RELIGION OF PEACE?

    If Msgr. Swetland is correct, and it is Church teaching that all Catholics must accept that Islam is a religion of peace, then the Catholic hierarchy will have demonstrated that it does not have the authority or reliability in discerning and transmitting the truth that it claims to have; Papal claims to speak in the name of Christ will be eviscerated; and the Catholic Church as a whole exposed as a fraud.

    On Relevant Radio’s Drew Mariani Show on August 10, 2016, Msgr. Stuart Swetland, President of Donnelly College in Kansas City, Kansas, and I engaged in a lively discussion over whether Islam is a religion of peace or of violence. Notice how, right at the end of the show when I had no opportunity to reply, Msgr. Swetland essentially reads me out of the Catholic Church for not believing that Islam is a religion of peace, and claims, falsely, that this was not only the view of Pope Francis, but of Pope Benedict XVI and Pope John Paul II. He claims...

On Cannabis.com, the writer said in December 2005: "AIDS, hurricanes, we are in the end times."

Mr. Parker intends to phase out the print version of the newsletter, which he built over the past several decades into one of the most influential voices on wine. He also said he intends to step down as its editor in chief, turning over editorial oversight to his Singapore-based correspondent, Lisa Perrotti-Brown.

    A video has emerged of U.S. Ambassador to Syria Robert Ford being assaulted by a pro-regime demonstrator on the streets of Damascus last week. The assault took place before Ford's unapproved trip to the city of Jassem on Aug 23. Ford was present at a gathering of demonstrators who support the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad outside the Cham Palace Hotel in Damascus when one demonstrator ran up to Ford and tried to wrap him in a poster that featured Assad's face. Ford's security intervened quickly and rushed Ford to his car. The incident was then replayed in a...

    No tragedy goes long without exploitation, and the atrocities in Norway are no exception to that rule. The media is hard at work accusing researchers who monitor and warn about Islamic radicalism and terrorism of being responsible for the actions of an extremist and a terrorist. Is silencing researchers who have put years of effort into exposing networks of radicals the right response to a terrorist attack? No reasonable person would think so. But that is exactly what media outlets like the New York Times and the Atlantic are trying to do. Jeffrey Goldberg at the Atlantic goes so far...

Public Citizen is working on behalf of Harry Cason, a Ph.D. student at the City University of New York who filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) to the CIA in 2009 for research he was doing on the U.S. role in Spain’s Franco regime, where Opus Dei allegedly played...

However, to get dissed by the freakin’ Sundance Kid. Now that’s got to hurt. The interview was for Aol’s PopEater and the comments in question came as the discussion turned to Redford’s great film Quiz Show (if you haven’t seen that one, you’re missing out)...
