  • Did Canada Just Give Leftist Hate-Speech Bullies A Taste Of Their Own Medicine?

    Western Journalism ^ | May 19, 2015 | Lester Jackson, Ph.D.
    You just have to love this. ...the Canadian Government intends to use hate crime laws against advocates of boycotting Israel.... so-called hate crime laws long have been a weapon of the left to silence free speech. And now an Al Jazeera article deliciously discovers the virtues of freedom of speech – at least for the very people who would destroy Israel, many of whom sympathize with murdering others because of “offensive” cartoons.

    On my way to the NRA annual meeting, I passed through Lordburg, New Mexico on I-10. It is a convenient place to fuel the truck and myself, so I pulled into a truck stop to grab a sandwich. Open carry is protected by the New Mexico Constitution. I was carrying a Glock 17 (9mm for those who have not kept up with Glock nomenclature). The young woman behind the counter had a streak of purple hair, multiple piercings, a sizable tattoo on her right forearm, and was friendly, courteous, helpful, efficient and pleasant to speak with. I could not ask...
  • Salon.com Slams Final Letterman Shows as being "Unbearably White"

    Salon.com is happy to see David Letterman go. Not because they think he was unfunny, but because he had too many white people on his show, particularly in its final days. In an article titled, "The unbearable whiteness of the Letterman farewells: Let this truly be the end of a show-business era," Salon took Letterman to task for inviting white actors and actresses on his final shows, but few minorities. "You'd never know" that American culture has a large minority presence, Salon author Scott Timberg writes. Referencing the last few shows before Letterman left the air, Timberg writes, "Some of...
  • About that rape scene in 'Game of Thrones'

    Houston TV Examiner ^ | May 19, 2015 | Mark R. Whittington
    “Game of Thrones” rarely fails to shock, filled as it is with atrocity porn. However, the brutal rape of Sansa Stark at the hands of the psychotic Ramsey Bolton at the end of Sunday’s episode seems to have crossed the line for many people. It is not like people haven’t been raped and worse before. Remember the Red Wedding, the beheading of Eddard Stark, and the castration and torture of Theon Greyjoy. But, Sansa is an innocent girl, though she has been getting progressively less naïve as the series has proceeded.

    Texans argue about a lot of things, including political issues such as education, healthcare and, of course, illegal immigration. But nothing gets the denizens of the Lone Star State exercised more, with the possible exception of football, than barbecue, more specifically the wet rub vs. dry rub question. Texas Gov. Greg Abbott recently came down on the wet rub side of the controversy. The San Antonio Current pretty much proposed revoking the governor’s Texas citizenship for this heresy. “Everyone knows” that real barbecue does not need sauce. It is all in the smoking technique.

Titled, "You might not think you're sexist – until you take a look at your bookshelf," Valenti stated that people who do not have books by women in their collection are sexists. "When you live in a world with outrageous, explicit misogyny - domestic violence, sexual assault and attacks on reproductive rights, to name a few - it’s easy to breeze by the small stuff," she explains. She continues, "like it or not, your taste in music, books, television...

    Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush was recently asked about the “Draw Muhammad” contest in Garland, TX that was attacked by two jihadists, and what Mr. Bush thought of event organizer and ardent counterjihadist Pamela Geller. Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was not, but a new book gives insight into how she might think about the issue given her support as Secretary of State of a policy put forth by the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) at the UN that comes into direct conflict with the First Amendment. As Maj. Stephen Coughlin (Ret.) writes in his “Catastrophic Failure: Blindfolding America in...

But Brzezinski's biggest blast was reserved for ABC, which had hired the hyper-partisan Clinton adviser in the first place. Brzezinski hit the "lack of judgment of the people who are hiring him to think that he can just erase [his close Clinton ties] from his brain." View the video here.

    Both the antizionist and the antisemite rise only at the exercise of Jewish, Israeli self-defense Antisemitism is based in the hate of God and the imperative of the peremptory Moral Code and Law the Jews imposed on the world. It is the CODE that governs the behavior of man’s interactions with men; and nation’s with nations - a code that the antisemite and fascist will first reject and then violate in many ways in his personal and business affairs. To justify their violation of what is civilized, the Judeophobic will turn on the Jew for bringing their violations to light....

They stole passports and other ID-documents from average Westerners and are using them as travel documents.

If nothing is done, it’s only a matter of time before these genocidal maniacs commit a massive terrorist attack in the West. And with massive I mean: a second 9/11.

    President Barack Obama had the right words, only the wrong occasion. The president said, "I don't anticipate overnight changes. But what I know deep in my bones is that if you've done the same thing for 50 years and nothing has changed, you should try something different if you want a different outcome, and this gives us an opportunity for a different outcome." That is what Obama should have said when he talked about the rioting, pillaging and looting that took place in Baltimore, while police were held back, after the death in police custody of Freddie Gray.

She begins an affair with a fellow astronaut and soon finds herself in a love triangle. The story seems to be not so loosely based on the incident in which real life astronaut Lisa Nowak who drove nonstop between Houston and Orlando wearing an adult diaper and disguised in a trench coat and sunglasses to confront a...

"That changed Sunday when President Raul Castro said the teachings of Pope Francis had persuaded him not only to take a softer line on religion, but perhaps to return to the Catholic Church and begin worshipping again as he once did, growing up in Jesuit schools." Now, you could interpret that to mean that Raul Castro has suddenly seen the light and decided that marxism is not...

    The purpose of recent articles about RINO Speaker John Boehner and his supporters was to make clear that the biggest problem conservative voters face is betrayal by candidates who lie about what they will do if elected. Because the United States leans conservative, RINO conservative poseurs have the greatest need to lie in order to win elections. Apparently, this is still not clear. On April 14, Rush Limbaugh effusively praised an egregious phony, Marco Rubio. The next day, Limbaugh astonishingly defended that praise with toxic acquiescence in preemptive surrender to contempt for the Constitution and rule of law.

    Across the oil patch, banks are starting to close off their exposure to some of the riskiest oil drillers. A new monthly survey from the Federal Reserve finds that banks that have issued loans to oil drillers are projecting some of them to go bad. Over the course of 2015, the Fed says that oil loans could “deteriorate” and that banks “expected delinquency and charge-off rates.” At the same time, the overall exposure to such loans remained small. Around 80 percent of the banks surveyed by the Fed indicated that their exposure to shaky oil companies accounted for less than...

One Clinton-linked transaction however implicates another figure: presumed 2016 GOP presidential candidate Jeb Bush. In a chapter titled “Disaster Capitalism,” Schweizer explores the dealings of the Clinton Foundation — in league with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton...

    Write, draw, publish, or display something these people don't like, and "of course" you should be killed - just like Pamela Geller Since the Garland, Texas attack on an art exhibit featuring cartoons of “The Prophet Muhammad,” progressives have been falling all over each other to demand sensitivity based “limits” on the First Amendment. The argument goes that, since Islamists just can’t control themselves, we should be forced to watch what we say lest we offend them and wind up victims of Jihad. In other words, liberals - joined by the likes of Bill O’Reilly and Greta Van Susteren -...

    The terrorists think Americans are just sitting back waiting for the next promised attack. And they are sitting back waiting---locked and loaded ISIS, ISIL, al Qaeda, Boko Haram, the Taliban—in short Islamic terrorists under all acronyms could be confusing the largely unprotected American population with its seemingly Islamist terrorist-simpatico president. It is not a stretch to say that when it comes to the topic of international Islamic terrorism, the president and the people differ as starkly as night and day. Just because there was no official response from President Barack Obama to the latest terrorist threat that they have “71...

    The Marxist-founded pressure group gears up to bring the Arab Spring to Baltimore — and the rest of America Cooling down the churning cauldron of mob violence that Baltimore has become is not on the agenda of the ACLU which is now preparing to turn up the heat in cities across America. Following the suspicious death in police custody of Freddie Gray, a 25-year-old black man with a long rap sheet, angry mobs and radical agitators have turned Maryland’s largest city into a Hobbesian jungle. They were already angry at the endlessly sensationalized deaths in recent years of black males...

    American Communist Party's involvement in Soviet espionage Despite the wishful caviling of a few die-hard Marxist professors, the controversy over the American Communist Party’s involvement in Soviet espionage was long ago settled beyond even an unreasonable doubt. For example, a June 7, 1999 Time Magazine review of several new books on the subject found that, “The opening of Soviet archives after the collapse of the U.S.S.R., together with the Venona decryptions…, has made it clear that the fear of Soviet espionage was neither neurotic nor hallucinatory…The Venona traffic demonstrates beyond argument that the Soviet penetration into American government, science, and...

    We now know that ISIS isn’t here looking for employment. Apparently a jobs program for terrorists isn’t at the top of their list. So America, if you’re not already locked and loaded—get prepared So ISIS now claims to have 71 soldiers in 15 states, all ready to attack targets at the drop of Mohammed’s name! To which I say Bring it on When Judicial Watch claimed that ISIS was already established across the border in Mexico it wasn’t much of a surprise to patriots—real Americans—who have known that the porous southern border would lead to easy terrorist access, the kind...
  • NYU Teacher: Men Should be Banned from Literary Readings; "Hear Me Now, [Expletive]?!"

    In possibly the dumbest article to ever be written, Gawker author and NYU teacher Josephine Livingstone called for the banning of men from moderating literary reading. The article is titled “Ban Men from Literary Readings” and is literally several paragraphs of sexist ramblings, comments on the fact that many men are straight, and stereotypes. Ms. Livingstone’s piece begins with her complaining that, at a book-reading, that a moderator didn’t choose her to ask a question. “There’s a procession of question-askers,” she writes, “professors, grad students, writers, editors, self-appointed smart guys. Well-intentioned, each one.” She adds, for no discernible reason, “The...

    The Directorate of Religious Affairs in Turkey has declared in a fatwa that it is OK to use toilet paper. Islamic scriptures had commanded Muslims to use the left hand with either water or three stones to clean themselves after defecating. The Directorate explained that the earlier rules use water or stones were made at a time when toilet paper was unavailable. So I guess they were just updating Islam for the modern era. But don’t they have better things to do? There are many more urgent things that can be updated. Take slavery for example. Slavery has been practiced...

    I've often used the phrase “when I’m rich” followed by, "I’m going to do X and Y and Z". Anyone hearing me say that could certainly be forgiven for thinking my primary motivation is to grow my bank account just for the sake of filling it up. In reality however nothing could be farther from the truth. While I do want to grow my bank account, it’s not the money. If it were I could probably figure out an easier way to do it than tilting at windmills seeking to start a successful business. Robbing a bank would be faster,...

      The Schutzstaffel was among other things, the political police of the Third Reich. The SS expanded from a small paramilitary unit to a powerful force that served as the Führer's bodyguard, the Nazi Party's "Protection Squadron" and a force that, fielding almost a million men (both on the front lines and as political police), managed to exert as much political influence in the Third Reich as the Wehrmacht, Germany's regular armed forces. Today the SS lives on in Wisconsin. It has been renamed the Democrat Party. They have hated Scott Walker pretty much since the day he was born....
