  • Was Doctor Strange Changed to Please China? (Marvel ordered to "Portray China in a Positive Light")

    Marvel's new movie Doctor Strange may have changed the Ancient One from a Tibetan man to a Celtic white woman to appease China. That's at least was Doctor Strange writer C. Robert Cargill suggested on the Double Toasted podcast. Or was this another example of Hollywood whitewashing—giving Asian roles to white actors?
  • Vladimir Putin is no master of strategy — his Syria plan was a disaster

    As Russian pilots fly home from Syria, they can look forward to triumphant welcomes. Their commander-in-chief, Vladimir Putin, is the focus of almost as much fawning adulation — even from the supposedly hostile Western media. Once again, the Russian president is being portrayed as a strategic genius, adept at wrong-footing America and Europe. Yet the self-congratulation conveniently ignores some awkward truths. Far from making a cool and calculated decision to intervene in Syria, Putin was compelled to deploy his forces in order to rescue a feckless ally. His campaign has yet to achieve any of its stated goals. Worse, Russia...

    Fox has ordered a pilot for a new television show aimed at combating so-called Islamophobia in the U.S. Former "Saturday Night Live comedian Nasim Pedrad will play a 14-year-old male in the upcoming series "Chad: An American Boy." The announcement came just one week after President Obama spoke at a terror-linked mosque in Baltimore, Maryland, and requested such a show. "Our TV shows should have Muslim characters that are unrelated to national security," Obama said Feb. 3 at the Islamic Society of Baltimore, which is affiliated with the Islamic Society of North America, or ISNA.

    There was a time when Hollywood's top tier talent would work in the cause of Americanism and freedom. John Ford, George Stevens, John Huston, William Wyler and Frank Capra all did film work advancing America's interests in the fight against oppression, suppression and totalitarianism. That was then. Now we have a Hollywood that works to undermine freedom and individual rights. The low state of film is a reflection of the morally depraved clowns making them. George Clooney wants to help German Chancellor Angela Merkel with the Muslim invasion. Perhaps he should turn Amal over to the mob -- get into...

    International law experts are blasting Doctors Without Borders for forcibly removing civilian patients from the aid group’s Kunduz, Afghanistan, hospital and replacing them with wounded Taliban fighters when the city fell to the rebel control in late September. Alan Dershowitz, an acclaimed Harvard constitutional lawyer and authority in international law, said that he was not surprised that the group, known as Medecins Sans Frontieres, favored Taliban fighters over civilian patients, telling The Daily Caller News Foundation in an interview that he regards Doctors Without Borders as “Doctors Without Morals.” Dershowitz charged the group with having a long history of anti-Western...

    President Obama purposefully sidesteps calling Islamic terrorism by name in order to coddle Muslims Standing before a National Prayer Breakfast gathering, President Obama traveled the pitted road of selective memory in his address, choosing to focus on 1000-year-old misdeeds committed under the authority of the Holy Roman Church, a political entity. Unable to bring himself to identify the current perpetrators of horrific atrocities inflicted on anyone who crosses their path, Obama doesn’t just condone the ISIS actions, but by refusing to speak about their religious affiliation, admits his sympathies for the Islamist murderers. Without hesitation, the president readily accuses Christians...

    The Big Three networks steered clear of labeling the Islamist group ISIS "terrorists" on their evening newscasts on Friday. Instead, ABC's World News and CBS Evening News labeled the genocidal radicals "militants." NBC Nightly News used the more benign "rebels" in their coverage of the group's latest attacks on the Kurdish part of Iraq.

In case you missed this one, there was a report at JihadWatch and numerous other sources that a Boston school (Concord-Carlisle High) replaced the Pledge of Allegiance with a Muslim poem on the anniversary of 9/11. Now if that isn’t infuriating enough, there is another report out of Arkansas in which a school attempted to sneak in a Muslim speaker to proselytize on the 9/11 anniversary.

    Lynne Stewart is a terrorist and a traitor and ideally she should have received the death penalty. That wasn’t the way the pantywaist Clinton-appointed Judge John G. Koeltl saw it in 2006 when he sentenced the radical anti-American lawyer who became a willing participant in an Islamic terrorist plot to a mere 28 months in prison-a fraction of the 30-year term the government sought. But things have changed. The septuagenarian Stewart has been resentenced, this time to a 10-year prison term. It’s about bloody time. Note that some blogger and media outlets have been describing Stewart, an avowed Maoist, as...

In unusually blunt language, the attorney general expressed deep frustration with the way Congress has kicked around his trial plans. Holder announced last year that he wanted to try Mohammed and four other defendants in civilian courts in New York City, but the idea generated so much bipartisan controversy that it's all but been...

The Bush Justice Department had sought a 30 year sentence. “Lynne Stewart should be set...

I know: There are principled individuals on the left who do not condone terrorism or minimize the Islamist threat. Author Paul Berman, a man of the left, has been more incisive on these issues than just about anyone else.

    WASHINGTON: Just 14 months ago, at his confirmation hearing to become attorney general, Michael Mukasey frustrated and angered some senators by refusing to state that waterboarding, the near-drowning technique used on three prisoners by the CIA, is in fact torture. At his confirmation hearing over the past week, Eric Holder, the attorney general-designate, did not hesitate to express a clear view. He noted that waterboarding had been used to torment prisoners during the Inquisition, by the Japanese in World War II and in Cambodia under the Khmer Rouge. "We prosecuted our own soldiers for using it in Vietnam," Holder said....

    "Hate" is in the eye of the beholder, and "hate crime" laws are essentially tools for enforcing officially accepted views. But with "hate crime" laws there will come "hate speech laws," coinciding neatly with the Islamic bloc's attempts at the UN to criminalize criticism of Islam. Such laws will effectively render it a criminal offense to discuss the motives and goals of the jihadists, thus rendering us mute and defenseless before them. And that, of course, is precisely the point. "'Hate crimes!' They're ba-ack!: Plan to federalize penalties for 'perceptions' reappears in Congress," by Bob Unruh for WorldNetDaily, January 15...

Chief among these have been his role, which he says he regrets, in President Clinton’s pardon of fugitive financier Marc Rich.

  • 'War on terror' was a mistake, says Miliband

    The foreign secretary, David Miliband, today argues that the use of the "war on terror" as a western rallying cry since the September 11 attacks has been a mistake that may have caused "more harm than good". In an article in today's Guardian, five days before the Bush administration leaves the White House, Miliband delivers a comprehensive critique of its defining mission, saying the war on terror was misconceived and that the west cannot "kill its way" out of the threats it faces. British officials quietly stopped using the phrase "war on terror" in 2006, but this is the first...

    The pick of Leon Panetta as the new director of the Central Intelligence Agency signals just one thing — Barack Hussein Obama, Jr., the president-elect, is ready to capitulate to terrorists. For weeks, there have been rumors in the military and intelligence world that Obama was having difficulty finding a new CIA director because no one who was qualified wanted to work with Eric Holder, Obama’s choice for Attorney General. Holder famously defended the “wall of separation” between the CIA and the FBI during the Clinton administration, which prevented the agencies from sharing intelligence on terrorists, for fear of harming...

    Congratulations CNN's Ben Wederman, you're officially Genocidal Hamas' "man"On CNN Andersen Cooper 'AC360' ( ) (Jan 2, 2009), Ben Wedermnan was asked the real question of the day, "what about the fact that Hamas uses civilians areas to fire from there their missiles, aren't they the real culprit in Arab civilian losses?" Ben Wederman: "Hamas is a political grass roots" Israel has to come to terms with that. AC again then refocused the question, Ben Wederman, Hamas is "IN" the civilan population, it's a political grass roots movement that is embedded within the Palestinians. Amazing (unlike on Foxnews) no one...

    How do you elaborate on a headline like this? (HT Hot Air Headlines) The mainstreaming of a domestic terrorist continues apace. Of course, Huffington Post isn't "mainstream" in any real sense, but is considered as such by out-of-touch Old Media, which (post-election, of course) has frequently feted the 1970s Pentagon bomber. Here's the Huffington Post URL in case you wish to visit (I'd rather not hyperlink it): At the link, HuffPo describes Ayers as "Author and Distinguished Professor of Education and Senior University Scholar at the University of Illinois at Chicago." There is, of course, no mention of his...

    Boycott The New York Times ^ | December 15, 2008 | Don Feder
    An article in yesterday’s New York Times by Public Editor Clark Hoyt, “Separating the Terror and the Terrorists,” is a nauseating example of the paper’s moral relativism applied to the war on terrorism. Hoyt tries to rationalize The Times’ reluctance to apply the “terrorist” label to people who take hostages, blow up bystanders and shoot 5-year-old girls in their beds. Hoyt admits “The Times is sparing in its use of ‘terrorist’” when reporting on Palestinian atrocities. In an effort to be even-handed, the paper has decided to call the murder of Jews inside the 1948 boundaries of Israel “terrorist,” but...
