    Truth Revolt ^ | December 10, 2014 | David Horowitz
    There’s a reason that the Left doesn't talk about “justice” but rather “social justice.” It’s because the modifier they insert changes the very meaning of the word. It is a “modified” version of justice — what David Horowitz calls here their justice — that they seek and that “justice” is the very antithesis of what decent people think. Social Justice requires the rewarding of all that is evil, failed and recognized by decent society as wrong and the concurrent punishment of all that is good, right and successful. Since Western Civilization is good, right and successful — in fact, the...

    Like I said on a previous post yesterday regarding similar Islamic insurgencies in Sweden and across Europe, we see a continuing escalation of this low-grade civil war in Europe. What next, walled off city-states? One thing is for certain. Europe is going to explode. But what is paramount and top priority is — the silencing of critics of Islam. That is the obsession of the EU and member states. Sharia compliance. “Native French under Attack in Muslim Areas,” By Dale Hurd, CBN, April 10, 2014

    DETROIT, MI -- For the first time since April 2 when an angry mob beat Steven Utash to the brink of death in Detroit, authorities say race is a factor.

    Breitbart Texas has reported extensively on the left-of-center campaign to restrict the ability of Border Patrol agents to defend themselves and on the false narratives such open-borders advocates use in their political and media attacks against the men and women of the Border Patrol. The reality being far from the false narrative of "kids throwing pebbles," the life-threatening rock attacks against Border Patrol agents often occur in remote areas when a solitary Border Patrol agent may be up to a 90-minute drive from their nearest backup. The solitary Border Patrol agent's radio often does not work due to insufficient communications...

"They started to curse me out: 'dirty Jew,' 'death to the Jews,' 'son of a b***,' etc. Then they started to beat me...

The coyote ran into a backyard, where it was shot and killed by an Orangetown police officer, authorities say. The woman told police the coyote appeared to be more focused on attacking her, not her dog

    Writing for the Christian Post Reporter, Michael Gryboski notes that, "A Roman Catholic diocese in Massachusetts that refused to sell a historic mansion to a gay couple is facing mounting legal pressure. Massachusetts' Attorney General Martha Coakley recently filed a brief in support of the gay couple who are suing the Diocese of Worcester alleging discrimination. Filed before superior court earlier this month on behalf of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, Coakley argued that the diocese's actions constituted 'sexual orientation discrimination.' 'The commonwealth's compelling interest in protecting gays and lesbians from discrimination derives from their status as a politically vulnerable minority...

    PHOENIX (AP) — A dog that mauled a 4-year-old Phoenix boy has received thousands of pleas for mercy through a Facebook campaign ahead of a court hearing to decide his fate. A municipal court judge could rule at a March 25 hearing on whether Mickey, a pit bull that bit Kevin Vicente in the face, should be euthanized. Kevin received injuries that will require, according to doctors, months and possibly years of reconstructive surgeries. Since the Feb. 20 attack, Mickey has become the object of a Facebook page that has gotten more than 40,000 likes and an online petition to...
