    'We'll chop off heads of those who insult Islam' A Perkasa leader has threatened to "chop the heads off" those who "ridicule" Islam and the Selangor sultan. In a fiery speech, Perkasa information chief Ruslan Kassim (right) told those attending a rally in front of the Selangor palace for such "parasites" to "get lost". "If they continue to ridicule the religion and the sultan, we will chop off their heads. "It is better they get lost, better they die, better they don't live in this country than be a disease, a virus and a parasite on our religion, race and...

    ...a Northern Ireland politician has said. The attraction in Sichuan province, about 930 miles from the sea, will let hundreds of people at a time experience the shipwreck. The Titanic was built in east Belfast. Former Lord Mayor of Belfast Jim Rodgers said he had asked the Chinese firm behind the 1bn yuan (£100.7m) project to reconsider their plans. He said that while it was a "great idea" to build the Titanic replica at the Romandisea Seven Star International Cultural Tourism Resort, "to have a simulation of an iceberg collision is going a step too far".

Continue Reading ABC News' Jon Karl, who's been getting face-time with Bachmann in Waterloo in advance of her formal campaign announcement, played a clip of the web video in which Wallace said, "I messed up. I'm sorry." When Karl asked if she accepts the apology, Bachmann brushed aside the question this way: "I think that it's insulting to insinuate that a candidate for president is less than serious."

Today, the Obama re-election campaign launched an all-out attack on a brand new book critical of Obama, "Where's the Birth Certificate," by bestselling author Jerome Corsi, Ph.D., calling it delusional, laughable and a "joke." If this sounds like major déjà vu, it's because the Obama election campaign did exactly the same thing in 2008 when it mobilized a major assault on Corsi's...

These events were devastating for African Americans. Mrs. Coretta Scott King, The First Lady or Matriarch of the Civil Rights Movement in the United States passed away in December 2006. The contributions of these three powerful, educated, and influential African American women caused them to be a positive permanent part of American history.

There are "really tough issues that real conservatives will have with Mike Huckabee," Beck said on his radio show of the politician, who's weighing another run for president in 2012. "If, sir, you are this thin-skinned about your politics, it might be best for you to stay on the sidelines" and not run, he added. It's the latest salvo in a week-long back-and-forth...

    Florida governor Rick Scott spent Monday at a luncheon with African-American lawmakers, speaking to the group about the upcoming legislative session. In doing so, Mr. Scott seems have set off a debate over race and politics. “I grew up probably in the same situation as you guys,” Mr. Scott said to the group of 20 Democrats. “I started school in public housing. My dad had a sixth-grade education.” A number of state Democrats objected to the assumption. State Rep. Betty Reed said she was offended by the remark, adding “He assumed that everyone [[n the room] was poor and that...

    Ridiculing it as "a silly question," Democrat Barack Obama pledged Wednesday he would resist any overtures to run for president or vice president before the end of his six-year term as a U.S. senator. "I was elected yesterday," Obama said. "I have never set foot in the U.S. Senate. I've never worked in Washington. And the notion that somehow I'm immediately going to start running for higher office just doesn't make sense. "So look, I can unequivocally say I will not be running for national office in four years, and my entire focus is making sure that I'm the best...

    63% of American voters want Congress to repeal the last piece of radical legislation rammed down their throats. It doesn’t matter. Barack Obama told Senate Republicans today to work with democrats to pass more radical leftist legislation. The Politico reported: President Barack Obama battled with Senate Republicans in a tense closed-door meeting Tuesday, facing tough criticism from his GOP adversaries — including John McCain — on issues ranging from health care to border security. Senators and other sources inside the meeting described the gathering as “testy” and “direct” — and Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) accused Obama of acting two-faced by...

    Is the Obama Administration preparing the ground for a Ministry of Truthiness? The President's latest wide-ranging speech at Hampton University made a halt at a very strange outpost, before moving on to education. Obama, it seems, is vexed by the idea of conspiracy theories. Apparently people aren't thinking the right thoughts. Obama's internet Yoda, Professor Cass Sunstein*, is also besotted with the idea. Two years ago, Sunstein proposed what you might call an 'active government solution' to conspiracies. The best way to counter conspiracy theories, Sunstein and co-author Adrian Vermeule argued, is with the "cognitive infiltration of extremist groups". This...

    A conservative filmmaker in Hollywood thought he had developed a worthwhile iPhone app: a telephone directory listing every U.S. senator and congressman, with caricatures of the legislators drawn by an artist. But Apple apparently didn't see the value, and the computer behemoth said a cartoon drawing of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was part of the reason why. The filmmaker, Ray Griggs, told FoxNews.com that his small firm, RG Entertainment, received a rejection letter from Apple this week calling the caricatures "objectionable." He added that he has received several e-mails suggesting that Apple stock owned by Pelosi's husband may have played...

    MIAMI (Reuters) - President Barack Obama had a message for his political friends and foes on Monday -- "just because I'm skinny doesn't mean I'm not tough." Obama was in Miami raising $1.5 million for Democratic congressional candidates for the 2010 elections, in which Democrats are seeking to hold onto their strong majorities in the House of Representatives and the Senate. After weeks in which he has been angrily criticized by some on the right, to the point of creating a poster image of him with a Hitler mustache, Obama told a fund-raising event that some of his supporters have...

The cartoonist denied he had Obama in mind. The cartoon, drawn for the Page Six section by Sean Delonas, who has been criticized for previous work, shows two policemen, one with a smoking gun, looking at a dead chimpanzee. One says, "They'll have to find someone else to write the next stimulus bill." The chimpanzee reference is to a 200-pound chimp that...

    President Barack Obama looked comfortable enough at his first White House news conference, but he sounded like a man fed up with one thing: Republicans lecturing him about his $820 billion economic stimulus plan. Obama repeatedly reminded a national television audience that federal spending and deficits soared under George W. Bush's presidency. He used the point to undermine GOP lawmakers opposing his plan and calling it too costly and wasteful. "It's a little hard for me to take criticism from folks about this recovery package after they've presided over a doubling of the national debt," Obama said. "I'm not sure...

    President Obama has shown the dent in his shield. He’s sensitive about what people think of him. That’s understandable since there was very little negative coverage of him during the campaign. In addition, he had so much money he could drown out any negative questions about him. The networks and the mainline newspapers had to admit after the election they’d been a little slanted towards Obama in their coverage. You can’t blame them. As then-Senator Biden said during the campaign, “I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy. I...

    Barack Obama is on a collision course with his critics after picking a fight with Rush Limbaugh, America's most influential conservative commentator. Mr Obama has told Republicans in Washington to stop listening to the right-wing talk show host Rush Limbaugh, risking a new culture war with conservative voters. His exhortation came as he enraged other Republicans by reversing George W Bush's ban on funding international aid to charities that perform or provide information about abortions. After less than a week in office, Mr Obama's presidency is already encountering the very partisan bickering he had pledged to stamp out during his...

    Bush’s giant Right Wing Noise Machine (RWNM) loves to preach about the Bush economic miracle.

Any way you look at the Bush economy, it comes up short. Today, I want to compare Bush’s job creation record with other economic recoveries. As usual, Bush comes up way short.

    Shakespeare didn’t think names were important. The Ninth Circuit, however, disagrees with the Bard. by John Canoni. August 02, 2005 Shakespeare didn't think names were important. In Romeo and Juliet, he observed “That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet.” The Ninth Circuit, however, disagrees with the Bard. In El-Hakem v. BJY, Inc.,[1] the court upheld a jury verdict against an engineering firm CEO who insisted on calling an Arab employee, Mamdouh El-Hakem, “Manny” and “Hank” despite El-Hakem’s strenuous objections over a period of almost a year. The CEO, Gregg Young, asserted a “Western”...

    The interview with the Senate leader had droned on for more than an hour and just about every topic had been asked and answered, cordially and completely. Except one, which seemed so obvious it surely had to be expected. So near the end, it, too, was asked. What happened next remains as vivid in the reporter's mind today as it was the day he wrote it in The Washington Post 24 years ago: "Suddenly (the Senate leader's) face freezes. The muscles on either side of his jaw harden to what must be the consistency of golf balls. His eyes are...
  • Communism and human nature (Bolshie Mod sez, Arise ye kittens of the earth!)

    Many argue that communism will never be possible because of "human nature". The essence of this false argument is the belief that a communist society would consist of an all-powerful central government that would tell everybody what to do--and would therefore undermine the creative initiative of individuals and the search for happiness. • This argument is based on two false assumptions: (1) It assumes that a communist society will look like the former Soviet Union, or the current China, North Korea, etc (ie: corrupt police states with a feudal-style ruling class) (2) It assumes that people will only work in...

    Gas costs so much. I cant afford it. Why want Bush do something? Don't say he can't. His daddy or his handlers could be on the phone in 2 minutes with the Rothchilds and by 1 week, oil prices would be under $20 and gas would be 1 dollar a gallon. You know it and I know it. Why want he? Do you know? Is there sombody we can call? Plaese advice.

    Unoffendable Francis Frangipane http://www.Frangipane.org "I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; and I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh" (Ezek 36:26) God has a new heart for us that cannot be offended, an "unoffendable" heart. Beloved, possessing an unoffendable heart is not an option or a luxury; it's not a little thing. Consider: Jesus warns that, as we near the end of the age, a majority of people will be offended to such a degree that they fall away from the faith. Listen...

    SFGate.com ^ | 7/10/04 | Mark Martin - SF Chronicle
    Sacramento -- For the first time, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger doesn't look like an unstoppable political force. After scoring early successes that clearly established him as the dominant power in Sacramento, Schwarzenegger has stumbled in his effort to fix the state budget mess that helped propel him into office. Government finance experts say his proposed budget borrows too much money, postpones difficult decisions and looks strikingly similar to Gov. Gray Davis' final budgets, which were derided by Senate President John Burton as "get-out-of-town-alive'' plans. Some lawmakers and Capitol insiders say the political food fight that always accompanies budget season has shown...

    Bottom Lines From Sen. Lott? • Sen. Trent Lott, whose impolitic remarks at Strom Thurmond's 100th-birthday celebration cost him his leadership role, may still be suffering from foot-in-mouth disease. In the Washingtonian's February issue, National Editor Kim Eisler -- whom Lott rejected last year as a possible co-author of his memoirs -- quotes the Mississippi Republican as referring to former Carter administration official and journalist Hodding Carter III as "Hodding the Turd" and calling Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) "butt ugly." (Lott was referring, Eisler reports, to the way Clinton looked in 1974, but he "allowed as how she looks...

    Washinton Post ^ | Friday, November 21, 2003 | Johnny Hart
    Did Johnny Hart -- the beloved creator of "B.C." and one of the most widely read cartoonists on Earth -- sneak a vulgar defamation of Islam into the comics pages last week? The question was raised yesterday by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a Washington-based civil rights group, in an e-mail to its membership. Hart and his syndicate say no -- that a simple, straightforward joke is being misconstrued. That may well be true, but the 73-year-old cartoonist's history of evangelizing his Christian beliefs through his comic cavemen have left many people doubtful. The cartoon, which appeared Nov. 10...
