  • In Defense of The Prophet Muhammad Pedophilia PR Campaign-Public Service Message

    Is Muslim Child Marriage coming to the entire world? Muslims say that Sharia Law will be implemented very soon in all countries, as soon as their populations grow...No one can stop this... I've already seen a similar message defending Muhammad's taking of a Jewish 9 year old girl as bride as that of being customary of his day. This image here below of what purportedly seems to be a legitimate public service announcement in England in the promotion of Muslim men taking underage girls as wives is difficult to interpret. At first sight it seems to be a straight forward...

    Based on history, most media watchers would probably expect NBC News to win the award for the most shameful coverage of George Zimmerman, the 29 year-old Florida man recently acquitted for the tragic shooting of teenager Trayvon Martin. But an objective look at the coverage from major print, online, and broadcast outlets, makes clear that by a fairly safe margin, CNN is most deserving of this win.

    New details and names have emerged regarding appointees that Obama brought into our White House who allegedly have ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. This article lays out what we have learned and calls for an immediate Congressional investigation. It is no secret that Obama has embraced an enemy that openly states their desire to destroy Western Civilization and declares “Death to America.” Obama’s perplexing actions over the course of his Presidency appear to be more aligned with the agenda of the Muslim Brotherhood and United Nations than with America’s agenda. From Obama’s illegal war in Libya with U.S. military support...

    When you run into a mine field, there's something that's been known to happen: land mines go off. When scores of people charge at the border of a sovereign nation with Molotov cocktails and an assortment of other arms spotted in the crowd, another thing has been known to happen: the people on the other side of that border recognize a threat to their personal safety as well as their national sovereignty, and try to stop you. Of course, the headline circling the globe at this point is "Israel fires on protestors," plus a casualty estimate. As with the protests,...

Navy SEALs have become national heroes since news broke that they took down Osama bin Laden, so it’s fitting that the newest action figure from a Connecticut company is a fierce looking President Barack Obama as a SEAL.

The five teens were sitting at a table outside Live Oak High School in Morgan Hill, Calif., on Wednesday morning when Assistant Principal Miguel Rodriguez asked two of them to remove their American flag bandannas, the Morgan Hill Times reports.

    As many as one in six patients treated in NHS hospitals and GPs’ surgeries is being misdiagnosed, experts have warned. Doctors were making mistakes in up to 15 per cent of cases because they were too quick to judge patients’ symptoms, they said, while others were reluctant to ask more senior colleagues for help. While in most cases the misdiagnosis did not result in the patient suffering serious harm, a sizeable number of the millions of NHS patients were likely to suffer significant health problems as a result, according to figures. It was said that the number of misdiagnoses was...

    Newsmax Insider Report (email) | September 9, 2007 | Newsmax
    Is there any method to bin Laden’s madness? After years of not being seen in public, he is apparently surfacing on the eve of the 6th anniversary of his Sept. 11, 2001 attacks. Intelligence agencies have stated that Islamic terrorists like to mark anniversaries with attacks. As religious fundamentalists, they may even be motivated by Islam’s interest in numbers or numerology. While the number 6 has little religious significance for Islamics, this Sept. 11 will mark an important number: 72. That’s 72 months since the 9/11 strikes of 2001. Could there be significance in that number? We did some research...

    In a new book that “totally contradicts everything that has been accepted to this day” about the Six Day War, two Israeli authors claim that the conflict was deliberately engineered by the Soviet Union to create the conditions in which Israel’s nuclear program could be destroyed. Having received information about Israel’s progress towards nuclear arms, the Soviets aimed to draw Israel into a confrontation in which their counterstrike would include a joint Egyptian-Soviet bombing of the reactor at Dimona. They had also geared up for a naval landing on Israel’s beaches.

During court proceedings charging Rickey Lackey with attempted theft, Hamilton County Common Pleas Judge Melba Marsh asked Lackey how many children he had. Lackey's response: “None, but I have six on the way." That prompted Marsh to ask Lackey, 25, if he was marrying a woman with six kids. “No, I be concubining," Lackey responded, meaning he lives with women he is not married to.

    Minnesota waterfowlers will be allowed two fewer ducks in the bag this fall than last, and the limit on hen mallards during a 60-day season has been cut from two to one, the Department of Natural Resources said last week. The reduction from last year's six-duck daily bag limit was due in part to a drop last year in the Mississippi Flyway duck harvest of about 1 million birds from 2003. Minnesota's 2004 harvest declined 23 percent. Additionally, Minnesota's breeding duck population this spring was the lowest since the drought years of the 1980s. Mallards, down 37 percent from 2004,...

    Anti-Semitism may seem to be a static, unchanging phenomenon but in fact the obsessive hatred of Jews has a history that goes back millennia and continues to evolve.Developments since World War II and the Holocaust have been especially fast-paced and portentous. Here are four of the most significant shifts: From right to left: For centuries, anti-Semitism was the hallmark of the right and merely episodic on the left. To take the ultimate examples of these trends, Stalin's Judeophobia was peripheral to his monstrous project, but Hitler's was central to his. Even a decade ago, this pattern still basically held true....

    A series of diplomatic contacts are scheduled this week to help relieve the North Korean nuclear issue. Sources say South Korea plans to send its top nuclear negotiator, Deputy Foreign Minister Song Min-soon, to Beijing this week to ask China to use more of its influence over North Korea in getting Pyongyang back to the negotiating table. China, in turn, is expected to dispatch a high-level communist party official, Wang Jiarui, to North Korea as early as this weekend. In the meantime, South Korea, the U.S. and Japan are reportedly pushing to open a 6-way consultative meeting also comprising North...
  • Requiem for a Decent Chinese Communist

    Zhao Ziyang, former Secretary-General of mainland China’s Communist Party, died at a Beijing hospital last Monday. Good riddance to another communist? In this case, no. Not all tigers are incapable of changing their stripes. During his tenure in China’s one and only political party, Zhao took steps that truly can be called “reforms.” Zhao's greatest moment occurred during the pro-democracy rebellion of 1989, which was centered in and around Beijing’s Tiananmen Square. He opposed the use of China’s vast military might against the peaceful protestors gathered in the square. On May 19, 1989, Zhao personally pleaded with the protestors, mostly...

    Mona el-Fouli is seeking the release of her husband, who has been jailed in Toronto without being charged. TORONTO -- For a long time, Mona el-Fouli lied to her young children. Their father was working, she told them at first. He was on a trip, she said later. But when she took her boys, 5 and 7, to see their father behind a glass partition, they knew he was in jail. "Please mom, can I break this glass and go inside to play with my dad?" pleaded the 7-year-old, she recounted. For 4 1/2 years, el-Fouli's husband, Mohammed Zeki Mahjoub,...

    The world has decided that the territories are beyond the pale for the Jews. In a crash course on Jewish literacy, dealing with the Pale of Settlement published by Aish.com we learn "From 1791 until 1915, the Jews living in Eastern Europe were confined by the Czars of Russia -- starting with Catherine the Great -- to an area known as the "Pale of Settlement" (meaning "borders of settlement"). "Jews were specifically expelled from Moscow and St. Petersburg and forced into the Pale. Later they were also expelled from rural areas within the Pale and forced to live only in...

    In the September 20 issue of Time Magazine, author David Van Biema/Jackson writes very flippantly about a “Muslims Only” event held at Six Flags in New Jersey. He seems irritated that anyone would raise objections to religious segregation at a public amusement park. Before objections were raised, just how did the event’s organizers, the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA), plan to enforce Muslim-only entrance to Six Flags? By the way people dressed? By their skin color? Would entrants to the park have been forced to recite verses of the Koran? Were Jews wearing yarmulkes and Christians wearing crucifixes to...

    GOP hope is six-seat gain in Nov. By Jonathan E. Kaplan Senior House Republicans believe the GOP will gain about six seats in the Nov. 2 election, increasing the party’s majority in the chamber to 35, although they say it is too early to start making hard-and-fast predictions. Rep. Tom Davis (R-Va.), a former two-term chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC), told The Hill: “It’s too early for that. We could do a half a dozen if it were today. But there’s a long way to go. I always waited until the first or second week in October;...

    Despite the Chinese government’s horrific oppression of its people, dissent persists. Today, six women held a protest on an apartment building rooftop in Beijing. They waved a banner reading, “We accuse the police, the prosecutors and the courts in Liaoning province of corruption and trickery.” The women threatened to commit suicide if their demands were not met, but were later taken away by police. The protest took place not far from communist government headquarters. A similar incident occurred several weeks ago. According to the BBC, A growing number of Chinese have been bringing petitions to Beijing to try to gain...
