    Asia Kate Dillon, an actor whom I just love from Showtime’s “Billions,” has scored a first: a non binary actor who was born a woman and nominated as Best Supporting Actor from that show by the Critics Choice Awards. Dillon prefers to use the singular “they” pronoun, which isn’t grammatical but hey– we’re in new territory here. They plays Taylor, the genius assistant to Damian Lewis’s Bobby Axelrod on the show. Dillon is not the only nominee from “Billions.” The great Paul Giamatti scored a Best Actor nomination, as well. For some reason “Billions” doesn’t get much love from awards...

The 41-second clip shows the dog charging at the 3-year-old child, dragging him to the ground and tossing him around like a rag doll. The boy, wearing yellow pants, can then be seen struggling to crawl away. Moments later, people can be seen rushing over to help, with one man pulling the dog away by its collar. Police captured the dog... Photos ... show the side of the child’s face and neck bloodied from the...
  • Why Catholicism Is Preferable to Protestantism

    01/31/2015 8:43:45 PM PST · by Morgana · 354 replies ^ | April 10, 2014 | | Devin Rose
    My new book, The Protestant's Dilemma, shows in a myriad of ways why Protestantism is implausible. We sifted through many arguments to boil the book down to the most essential. A few chapters didn't make the cut but are still good enough to share. Here's one of them. If Protestantism is true, There's no way to know whether you're assenting to divine revelation or to mere human opinion about divine revelation. Protestants and Catholics both believe that God has revealed himself to man over the course of human history, culminating in his ultimate self-revelation in Jesus Christ. But whereas Catholics...

    Nightmarish 'supersoldier' ants with huge heads and jaws have been created by activating ancient genes. A supersoldier next to a normal ant: Scientists say they can create the supersoldiers at will by dabbing normal ant larvae with a special hormone - the larvae then develop into supersoldiers rather than normal soldier or worker ants Supersoldier ants can occur naturally in the wild, but only rarely. In the deserts of America and Mexico, their job is to protect the colony from raids by invading army ants. The supersoldiers use their enormous heads to block the nest entrance and attack any enemy...

    The Obama family has been working hard to show their indifference to the plight of middle America. Whether it's the president's golfing fetish, private air transportation for family dog Bo to a Maine vacation, or Michelle Obama's taxpayer subsidized trip to the Spanish Riviera, the gulf between the White House leisure class and the American middle class has grown to unprecedented proportions. Everyone is entitled to some R & R, though Mrs. Obama's jaunt is her eighth holiday this summer. Tone-deaf White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs defended vacation numero ocho by saying,

    Soon after Congress returns from the Memorial Day recess, liberal House Democrats and teacher unions will make one last push to pass a $23 billion fund to prevent teacher layoffs. Democrats are looking to package the fund with war and disaster spending in a supplemental appropriations bill the House will vote on as early as this week.

    BEIRUT: Terrorist group Al-Qaeda adopted a new organizational approach by granting its cells in Lebanon and the region “full independence” in decision-making and setting targets, according to a report published by As-Safir newspaper on Thursday. The new approach has also given the Al-Qaeda cells sufficient financing independence and freedom of decision with no need to be connected to other arms of the organization.

    Reagan taught us how to defeat the Marxists. Marxists are easy to defeat if you defund and bankrupt them. Marxists win ONLY if you agree to play along. Their system is easily overwhelmed by demand. Anytime you give something away for free, there is always a run on that item. This leads to rationing. It has happened in every Socialist nation. North Korea is constantly in cycles of starvation because they work at the minimal level with no incentive while placing the maximum stress on the government to provide. Same thing in Cuba, the Soviets fell and all the Eastern...

    A lament of a person betrayed by friends. The psalmist prays that the evildoers be publicly exposed as unjust. PSALM 35 Oppose, LORD, those who oppose America; war upon those who make war upon America. Take up the shield and buckler; rise up in her defense. Brandish lance and battle-ax against her pursuers. Say to her heart, "I am your salvation." Let those who seek her life be put to shame and disgrace. Let those who plot evil against America be turned back and confounded. Make them like chaff before the wind, with the angel of the LORD driving them...

    SIOUX CITY, IOWA -- Fred Thompson continued to fire back at reports that he will drop out of the race if he has a low finish in Iowa, this time saying the press was partly to blame. “I’m afraid the media never gets tired of allowing itself to be used,” he said. “And I think that quite frankly the media is being used for purposes to hurt me here in the last few days because they see what’s happening.” What’s happening, according to Thompson, is that some polls show him gaining in Iowa. “We’re working day and night for the...

    Some conspiracy theorists insist that there’s nothing new or novel or dangerous in pointing to the hidden hand behind perplexing, painful present events. They argue that discerning observers and historians have always identified powerful conspiracies because these plots and schemes have played such a prominent role in human events. Consider the assassination of Julius Caesar on the Ides of March. Wasn’t that high-minded plot an example of a diabolical and world-changing conspiracy? And what about the Nazis or the Bolsheviks or even the Sons of Liberty in the American Revolution? Didn’t such groups prepare secretive plans which they ultimately executed...

    Do you want to know the reasons why men tell lies? Those reasons are asking to be seen. First off, a man lies to a woman to gain her approval because he simply cannot do without it. Second, he lies to prove that he can really stand out in a crowd, and therefore he deserves to find favor with her. And last but not least – he lies to her because it is easier for him to cut corners that way. Telling lies also helps him to get off scot-free when problems arise. Men lie because of their women

    "Information Clearing House" -- As soon as it came out that the apparent “new 9-11” threat had been thwarted with the help of Pakistani Intelligence Services (ISI), it also became clear that it was a political tool for further legitimizing the lucrative “war on terror.” After all, the ISI with Saudi financing and covert CIA training created al-Qaeda in the first place, to counter another “threat”: Soviet communist “enslavement.” In 1940, President Franklin Roosevelt appointed a handful of Wall Street lawyers and investors to posts in his administration, including James Conant, James Forrestal, and Paul Nitze. Upon Roosevelt’s death (and...

    WASHINGTON, March 15, 2006 – As the 21st century progresses, the United States must be prepared to deal with threats posed by terrorists, corrupt regimes and emerging state powers, a top Pentagon leader said here yesterday. The 2006 Quadrennial Defense Review will go a long way toward helping the U.S. military meet these challenges, Deputy Defense Secretary Gordon England told the House Armed Services Committee. "The QDR is a strategic document," he said. "It is based on the recognition that the Department of Defense, and our nation as a whole, face a global security climate of dynamic, complex threats,...

"We should try to cool down the situation.

    'We will cut them until Iran asks for mercy' By Massoud Ansari (Filed: 15/01/2006) Deep in the lawless triangle connecting Iran, Pakistan and Afghanistan, eight terrified Iranian soldiers are being held hostage by a Sunni group that is vowing to "slaughter" them if Teheran does not bow to its demands. "We will chop their heads once our deadline is over," Abdul Hameed Reeki, chief spokesman of the Jundallah or Brigade of God group, told the Sunday Telegraph, slowly drawing an index finger across his neck to demonstrate the seriousness of his intent. The deadline for the men is tomorrow. The...

    ( Gush Katif refugees, many of whom are still dwelling in hotels awaiting permanent housing, lit a unique menorah tonight, one made of mortar shells fired by Arab terrorists into the heart of N’vei Dekalim, the largest community of Gush Katif. That special menorah commemorates the miracle of Jewish survival throughout the ages, and reminds us of the symbolic role Gush Katif has played in the saga of Jewish history: a community standing victorious despite constant attempts by Arab terrorists to wipe it out. 5000 mortars rained down on Gush Katif, from the onset of the Oslo War in September...
