  • Is the Truth About Islam in Vogue?

    Catholic World Report ^ | August 28, 2015 | William Kilpatrick
    (www.teenvogue.com) A common assumption in our society, especially among the educated classes, is that ignorance—of a religion, culture, or race—invariably begets hatred and prejudice. A corresponding assumption is that the more you understand the other, the less you will fear him. Of course, this notion can be easily debunked by pointing out that German Jews who understood what Nazism was all about had good reason to fear the Nazis. Likewise, Southern blacks who understood the true nature of the Ku Klux Klan were justifiably on their guard against the Klan. Ignorance can breed unwarranted fear, but sometimes ignorance can...
  • Donald Trump: A 21st Century Protectionist Herbert Hoover

    Newsmax ^ | August 29,2015 | By Stephen Moore & Lawrence Kudlow
    By Stephen Moore & Lawrence Kudlow Here's a historical fact that Donald Trump, and many voters attracted to him, may not know: The last American president who was a trade protectionist was Republican Herbert Hoover. Obviously that economic strategy didn't turn out so well either for the nation or the GOP. Does Trump aspire to be a 21st century Hoover with a modernized platform of the 1930 Smoot-Hawley tariff that helped send the U.S. and world economy into a decade-long depression and a collapse of the banking system? We can't help wondering whether the panic in world financial markets...

    A Harris County Sheriffs Deputy was shot execution style at a gas station while reportedly in full uniform. The deputy was filling up his patrol car. Witnesses told Breitbart Texas the shooter shot the deputy in the back of the head and then three times in the back. This tragedy comes within days of a group of Black radicals calling for lynching whites and killing cops, as Breitbart Texas recently reported. Witnesses also told Breitbart Texas that the shooter was a black male. The shooting occurred late Friday evening in Northwest Harris County just outside of Houston. One witness who...

    Donald Trump told Mark Halperin yesterday that his sister, a federal judge, would be a phenomenal Supreme Court justice. He also said that we will have to rule that out now, at least. If he ever becomes president, lets hope he rules it out permanently. Maryanne Trump Barry came up in my book The Party of Death for writing one of those heated judicial decisions in favor of giving constitutional protection to partial-birth abortion. She called a New Jersey law against it a desperate attempt to undermine Roe v. Wade. It was, she wrote, based on semantic machinations, irrational line-drawing,...

    Among a very long list of harms inflicted upon the United States by Barack Obama and his party, perhaps the worst was Caesarism. Obama relished the worship of millions in 2008. From his star turn at the 2004 Democratic National Convention, he was treated not as a political candidate, but as a savior. Progressives fell into a swoon, typified by Newsweek editor Evan Thomas' 2008 comment, "I mean in a way Obama's standing above the country, above -- above the world; he's sort of God." Now, a similar kind of unreasoning adulation is greeting (improbably enough) Donald Trump. Fred Barnes...

She survived that day, getting out before both towers of the trade center crumbled and killed 2,753 people in the deadliest terror attack on U.S. soil. But the woman in the photos, known to most as the "Dust Lady," died Tuesday, her family said. Marcy Borders was 42.

Unlike Josh Duggar though, the Bidens really don't appeal to any upstanding morality, but notice the difference of the response of someone like Josh Duggar and someone like Hunter Biden. When Duggar was outed, he acknowledged his sin and unfaithfulness to his wife and asked forgiveness. There was a man after God's own heart who did the same thing, only he also arranged for a man to be killed after committing adultery. Oh, and by the way, King David hid his sin too for...

In an era where the conspicuously wealthy have been anointed the new aristocracy, what happens when ordinary citizens dare to take a stand against the profit machine? That's just what Anthony Baxter's entertaining film examines. In a case that became an international news story, local Scottish residents put everything on the line to try to prevent Donald Trump from destroying their countryside with a luxury golfing resort.

Britton first came forward publically with the claim that her daughter, Elizabeth Ann, was Hardings daughter in a 1927 autobiography The Presidents Daughter. In her account, Britton detailed a steamy six-year-long affair with the 29th president, including one encounter in a White House closet, before his untimely death in 1923. At the time of its publishing, the book was met with public ridicule and widely discounted as...

If this is the end -- and Perry's super PAC support could well keep him on life support for a bit longer -- it would be a remarkable bit of timing: Perry entered the 2012 presidential race as its frontrunner on August 13, 2011 -- almost four years to the day when it's become clear that his second bid for the presidency has faltered...

    The gate of Gath, believed to be the home of the giant Goliath, has been discovered by archaeologists. I love this kind of story because I love it when the Bible is shown to have historical accuracies. You might recall: The Philistines occupied the high ground on one side and the Israelites occupied the high ground on the other side, with the valley between them. A champion stepped out from the Philistine ranks; his name was Goliath, from Gath; he was six cubits and one span tall. On his head was a bronze helmet and he wore a breastplate of...

    Science continues to prove the Bible on a regular basis. This time, archaeologists from Bar-Ilan University in Israel have uncovered what appears to be the hometown of the giant Goliath. The town, called Gath, was occupied until the ninth century B.C. In biblical accounts, the Philistines — the mortal enemies of the Israelites — ruled the city. The Old Testament also describes Gath as the home of Goliath, the giant warrior whom the Israelite King David felled with a slingshot.The new findings reveal just how impressive the ancient Philistine city once was, said lead archaeologist of the current excavation,...

The rules, issued under the Department of Housing and Urban Development, are supposed to put a stop to segregated living patterns and racially...

    A town hall for liberal activists featuring two Democratic presidential candidates was interrupted by dozens of demonstrators on Saturday who shouted down the contenders and demanded they address criminal justice issues and police brutality... ..."Black lives matter! Black lives matter!" they shouted toward O'Malley, and began a call-and-repeat rallying cry that activists have been using in the wake of the death of 28-year-old Sandra Bland, who died in police custody last week. "If I die in police in custody!" one of the chants went, "Burn everything down! That's the only way mother******* like you listen!"

Thats nearly twice as many meetings with lawmakers as she held in March, her second-busiest month for Hill outreach since taking the Feds helm in February 2014. Of the...

    Amazon backed Republican Sen. Ted Cruz in his fight against The New York Times Monday, saying there is no evidence his book sales are driven by strategic bulk purchases.

Cruz and his publisher, HarperCollins, said Friday the books were not sold in bulk. A Time For Truth ranked high on the other publishing industry bestseller lists including Nielsen Bookscan (#4), a subscription service that...

"Keith is a tremendous talent who has consistently done timely, entertaining and thought-provoking work since returning to ESPN," the network said in a statement. "While the shows content was distinctive and extremely high quality, we ultimately made a business decision to move in another direction. We wish Keith...
