    Piss Christ? Piss Koran! Part Four: Resolution by Matthew Bracken Your call, smart guy. The phone connection made a click and the line went dead. (The rest is at the Gates of Vienna link above.) Mike wasnt a kid. He knew that he wouldnt live forever. Hed had enough brushes with death to understand that a healthy old age was not guaranteed in the contract. Hed been standing next to men who had stepped the wrong way, and fallen. Hed helped pull a mans body off a concrete footer where hed been impaled on an uncapped rebar stake. Just two...

    Piss Christ? Piss Koran! Part 3: Crisis (This is the third installment of a story by Matthew Bracken, which is being serialized here in four parts.) As the two SWAT commandos slid down their ropes, the chopper lifted for a moment, and one of them was dragged against the cranes guy wire. He was flicked from his descent line, but he managed to grab hold of the thick steel cable. The helicopter dropped again, its rotors nearly intersecting the cable, but it banked away, dipped its nose, shot forward and corkscrewed downward, the other commando swinging out below its...
  • Horror Expert Stephen King Horrified By Donald Trump And Trump Supporters

    The Inquisitr News ^ | June 9, 2016 | Samantha Kilgore
    Stephen King is considered something of an expert when it comes to horror, but it seems that, for the author of It, nothing is scarier than Donald Trump. Except for maybe his supporters. In an interview with the Rolling Stone, King was candidly political, expressing dismay over the rise of Trump, as well as disappointment in the electorate that catapulted the former reality television star and real estate mogul into the Republican candidacy for president. I am very disappointed in the country. I think that hes sort of the last stand of a sort of American male who feels like...

    Piss Christ? Piss Koran! Part One: Dark Till Dawn Mike Dolan came out of the subway, hit the sidewalk and set out down the west side of 6th Avenue with a purposeful stride. Midtown Manhattan never truly sleeps, particularly just before a Monday morning, but compared to what it would be like in a couple of hours, it was geared way down. No tourists yet, mostly delivery trucks and vans. All lanes were northbound, because it was 6th Avenue. Mike was showered and clean shaven, every item on him and in his possession carefully considered. The white hard hat on...

    I remember reading about Marley Dias previously. She's back in the news: Rescue people in another galaxy? Escape from a tower with a dragon's help? Visit England, China, and India, and still be back for dinnertime? That's all in a day's read for 11-year-old Marley Dias, who was featured in TODAY's "Can-Do Kids" series on Tuesday. "When I get lost in a book, it's just, like, magical!" Dias told TODAY's Jenna Bush Hager. The New Jersey sixth grader's love for reading was profound but not blind.

    When I tell people I'm moving to Berlin for the summer, I usually get one of two reactions: 1. Berlin! Such a cool city. I'm jealous! 2. Why? I would never step foot in Germany. Berlin made headlines among Israelis when the "Milky controversy" broke out in 2014. An Israeli Berliner bragged how cheap the cost of living is in Berlin compared to Israel, if grocery receipts are the judge. According to the chocolate pudding index (the Israeli brand being Milky), the difference is 300 percent. My calculations are not necessarily financial, although I dont think I could afford living...

    Two Republican presidential candidates and both Democratic candidates are on Time Magazine's list of The 100 Most Influential People of 2016. The magazine placed them and other notable American politicians from both parties among a list of artists, athletes, world leaders, and celebrities. They are on the list because, according to the magazine, "they each embody a breakthrough: they broke the rules, broke a record, broke the silence, broke the boundaries to reveal what they're capable of." "To expect Donald Trump to conform to the 'norms' of business and politics is like expecting a square peg to fit in a...

Elle.com editorial director Leah Chernikoff says Harris-Perry will focus on the intersection of race, gender, politics, and yes, even fashion, telling the often-overlooked stories of women and girls of color. Harris-Perry left MSNBC after an internal memo became public in February. In the memo, Harris-Perry accused NBC News chairman Andy Lack and MSNBC president Phil Griffin of taking away her weekend morning discussion program. I will not be used as a tool for their purposes, she wrote. I am not a token, mammy, or little brown bobble head. Joining...

    Combining literary narrative and raw reflection, September Vaudrey walks through one of life’s worst losses―the death of a child―and slowly becomes open to watching for the unexpected ways God carries her through it. It’s a story of love and tragedy in tandem; a deeply personal memoir from a life forever changed by one empty place. And at its core, Colors of Goodbye calls to the deepest part of our spirits to know that death is not the and that life can be beautiful still.

    The Stainless Steel Rat is James Bolivar DiGriz, who goes by many aliases, including "Slippery Jim" and "The Stainless Steel Rat". He is a futuristic con man, thief, and all-round rascal. He is charming and quick-witted. He is also a master of disguise and martial arts, an accomplished bank robber, a criminal mastermind, an expert on breaking and entering, and (perhaps most usefully) a skilled liar. Master of self-rationalization, the Rat frequently justifies his crimes by arguing that he is providing society with entertainment; and besides which, he only steals from institutions that have insurance coverage. He displays a strong...

Those who value the Constitution are being driven by a desire to correct the mistaken laws passed by the Left. They can't be ignored this election cycle. However, the call for correction has been ignored, by the American Left. The way the Constitution is understood will change in the aftermath of this election and the...

    In his Republic, Cicero produced one of history's staunchest defenses for a career in politics. Composed in the late 50s B.C. while the Roman republic enjoyed a period of precarious stability under the triumvirate of Caesar, Pompey, and Crassus, and styled after the famous work of Plato, the Republic first addressed the claims of those who want nothing to do with governing the state, and would prefer a quiet life unsullied by politics. Politicians, after all, tend to be "worthless," according to these critics. Moreover, who would want to try to rule a capricious citizenry, or subject themselves to "foul...

When Kennedy began writing about inventors for The New York Times, she soon "would marvel at how few of the people were professional inventors, designers, in corporate innovation labs." It led...

  • New Book of Putin Quotes Echoes History’s Darkest Dictators

    To celebrate the New Year, the Russian government gave hundreds of high-ranking officials a special gift: a 400-page book of “prophetic” quotes by President Vladimir Putin. The book, titled Words That Change the World, includes 19 of the most important speeches and interviews Putin has given during the last 12 years. Hundreds of short, tweetable passages are bolded in the text. Anton Volodin, who spearheaded the book’s publication, said Putin’s words are valuable to Russian leaders largely because they tend to be prophetic: “We noticed that everything Putin says, to varying degrees, comes true,” he said. “In this book, we...

    Peter Drucker wrote the first version of this book during Hitler's rise to power. Most explanations for the rise of fascism focused on political reasons or economic ones, while Drucker explains the social movements that made leaders like Mussolini and Hitler possible. It also explains what is (and isn't) fascism, how they hobble their own economies, and the social warpage they create. Peter Drucker updated "The End of Economic Man" in the 1960s, seeing horrifying parallels between the 1960s activism and the 1930s. And while history does not repeat, it rhymes - and this book explains the social trends that...

Since then, that option has been on a generally downward trend.

Most of the people who know of Machiavelli know him from his most famous work "The Prince". "The Prince" is essentially a short course on how to get and keep political power.

That is to say… “Resilience” is a book for everyone. The sub-title of Greitens’ book is “Hard-Won Wisdom for Living a Better Life.” Indeed, “Resilience” offers earned wisdom and insights that can help people forge ahead in times of struggle, and become stronger. But this is not a “how-to” book. It acknowledges serious traumas that can change...

In terms of understanding Islam, that would include a failure, or an outright refusal, to grasp and integrate the truth about Islam by those charged with the responsibility of fighting the "War on Terror" and securing the safety of this country. As things stand now, in their eyes Islam is not an enemy, but an "innocent" bystander upon which is heaped the "calumny" of associating it with terrorism. Coughlin has assembled a mountain of information about the perilous deficiencies of our "warfighting" policies and the "efficacy" of the Islamic Movement's interlocking and...

The cover shows a picture of Trump speaking with his hand in the air, the gesture looking similar to the Nazi salute, with the headline "The New Furor." Furor and Führer -- the infamous German word for leader -- are homophones. The cover was shared by David Lee Preston, assistant city editor of the Daily News, with the comment, "Remind you of someone?" [continued]

    Toward Soviet America by William Z. Foster, CPUSA chairman, was first published in 1932. Later, copies of the book would be purged and almost eliminated entirely from American bookstores and libraries in what was presumably the CP response to the latest Moscow line; but surely it was also to try to put this spitting Soviet-American cat back in the bag. Interestingly, the book would be reprinted in 1961 with a foreword and commentary by the chairman of the House Committee on Un-American Activities, Rep. Francis E. Walter, who recommended that every American read it as a blueprint of Soviet intentions...

    In Carson’s telling, an early instance of heavenly intervention comes during his freshman year at Yale. It is the night before a final exam in chemistry, and Carson, who had developed weak study habits in high school, is hopelessly behind in the class. If he fails, he will have to drop out of pre-med. “Either help me understand what kind of work I ought to do,” Carson prays to God, “or else perform some kind of miracle and help me pass this exam.” While he sleeps, Carson dreams that a nebulous figure enters the chemistry hall and begins working out...

    With the release of this new movie about Stalin enabler, cheerleader and pom-pom girl Dalton Trumbo, it got me to thinking about his novel "Johnny Got His Gun". It also got me to thinking about the lack of literature which would support the fight for Western Values, considering the existential threat we face. Your thoughts?

    Dr. Bill Forstchen The United States is now the top energy producer in the world. For that, we are thankful. But all the shale gas, crude oil, coal, nuclear energy and renewables on earth are of little benefit if we do not have a secure means of delivering energy to our homes, our hospitals, schools and even our military. For this reason, we must focus on securing the U.S. electrical grid, the means of delivering our energy, at all costs. Throughout history, literature has played a key role in educating and inspiring the public to think beyond to a world...

    This afternoon, as I was sitting at this table engaged in preparing a dispatch, something seemed to disturb me. Looking up, I beheld standing opposite me a singularly beautiful female. So astonished was I, for I had given strict orders not to be disturbed, that it was some moments before I found language to inquire the cause of her presence. A second, a third and even a fourth time did I repeat my question, but received no answer from my mysterious visitor except a slight raising of her eyes. By this time I felt strange sensations spreading through me. I...

    From Dr. Peter Hammond's book: Slavery, Terrorism and Islam: The Historical Roots and Contemporary Threat. Islam is not a religion, nor is it a cult. In its fullest form, it is a complete, total, 100% system of life. Islam has religious, legal, political, economic, social, and military components. The religious component is a beard [sic!] for all of the other components. Islamization begins when there are sufficient Muslims in a country to agitate for their religious privileges. When politically correct, tolerant, and culturally diverse societies agree to Muslim demands for their religious privileges, some of the other components tend to...
