  • The Culture of Death's Love Story?

    It's maddening to watch a movie trailer resplendent with engrossing and alluring screenshots projecting a terrific flick, only to learn after paying the price of admission that you'd watched the totality of the movie's value. That's not misleading; it's good advertising. But sometimes movie studios are just plain guilty of false advertising. The new movie "Me Before You" looks to be an inspirational love story. A lower-class woman in England is hired to take care of a young man who recently became a quadriplegic after being hit by a car. He inspires her to live a fuller life; she inspires...

    Legions of blank-faced workers marching in lockstep, a bare-breasted woman dressed as a fallen angel suspended from the ceiling, dancers in their underwear simulating homosexual acts on a metal cart, robed Satanist-type figures bearing goat skulls, dancers in grass costumes worshipping a goat-headed man who "dies" and is resurrected. Is this some sort of bizarre witches' sabbat out in the woods? A Satanic black mass in the depths of an abandoned cemetery? No, it's the opening ceremony of the historic Gotthard Base Tunnel in Switzerland, attended by some of the most powerful leaders in Europe, including Chancellor Angela Merkel of...

    For those with eyes to see, the culture war weve been fighting for over half a century the war of Christianity vs. Marxism has entered a new phase. The Marxists have for all practical purposes defeated the American church, the last major barrier to global government, and the battlefield has shifted and broadened to the international community of the developed western world. There, as here, the Marxist elites have already successfully implemented LGBT cultural supremacy and granted favored status to Islam, to neutralize Christian political influence (in all but a few pockets of resistance, such as the countries...

    You are winning the culture war when the other side accepts your premises. In the 1950s, legislatures across the country succumbed to the latest trendy weapons ban. Switchblade knives. The trend went so far as to pass a federal ban on the importation and interstate sale of of switchblades, because, at the time, it was widely understood the Constitution forbade the federal government from actually regulating the sale of an item inside of state boundaries. Seven states, including Arizona, did not enact a switchblade ban.The ban never had any facts or logic to back it up. It was entirely...

    Donald Trump was the clear favorite in todays winner-take-all Arizona primary, even before the Brussels terrorist attacks. The immigration issue and the flood of early voters favors him, as does the fact that some of those early voters will have cast ballots for Marco Rubio before he dropped out last Tuesday night. If they had known Rubio would no longer be a candidate, many of those voters might have gone with Cruz. But polls have been tricky and often erratic this year (think Michigan and the surprise win of Bernie Sanders). For example, the latest poll showing a 14 point...

    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Controversy continues to swirl around Beyonce’s Super Bowl halftime show performance. The pop superstar is being accused of using her performance to attack police officers. “I think it was outrageous that she used it as a platform to attack police officers, who are the people who protect her and protect us,” former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani told CBS2’s Dick Brennan. Beyonce and her dancers were wearing leather and black berets, which was apparently a nod to the Black Panthers movement.

This approach further solidifies the modern American future as service driven only - a traditional class society, "haves and have-much-less". The middle class evaporates along with the lost jobs and wages.

Tele5 justified the move on Twitter this afternoon, saying that it was a symbol "expressing our sympathy to the victims of yesterday's attack," on German tourists in Istanbul. The attack in Istanbul took the lives of 10 tourists, mostly Germans, in Sultanahmet square, near the Blue mosque and Hagia Sophia.

By painting those who are supposedly dying as useless, drug-addicted ragers, he paints a picture of a weak, angry, and ultimately stupid ethnic group getting what it deserves. If this were any other group, Zakaria would not be using the pages of the Washington Post for a victory dance. Instead, he would be launching an emotional blackmail campaign to cure this “epidemic” with hundreds of billions of federal dollars. Like most...

    According to a recent CNN/ORC poll, many white evangelical Christians in the early primary states support Donald Trump. That’s surprising. Trump’s call Monday to bar all Muslims from entering the U.S. is perhaps the biggest act of religious bigotry in modern presidential politics. Such a proposal is a total affront to the gospel of Jesus Christ. It’s stunning that Trump would ask the American people to punish Muslim refugee families for the sins of ISIS. It’s even more stunning that such positions have traction with the American electorate. As we come upon Christmas, the business mogul turned presidential candidate has...

A petition signed by 16 groups across the country has asked that the larger-than-life frieze of great lawgivers be altered "in the spirit of religious tolerance and pluralism" because Islamic tradition discourages artistic renderings of people, and showing the face of Muhammad is considered particularly offensive. The Supreme Court refused to comment publicly on the controversy, but coalition spokesman Nihad Awad said there already has been one "fruitful"...

    THE Australian Army is removing the motto "In this sign conquer" from the 102-year-old hat badges of army chaplains because it is offensive to Muslims.

Australian Army chaplains have had the motto on their hat badges since 1913. ..... The Defence spokeswoman said: "There are 102 ADF permanent members who self-identify as Muslim.

    Considering the Freedom Center’s aggressive political work, poetry may not be something one would expect to find as part of its intellectual arsenal. But as many conservative writers such as Andrew Klavan and myself have noted for years, reclaiming America means reclaiming the culture, and that means engaging in the arts. As Finch writes in his introduction, “[I]f as a people, and a nation, we can return to something lost, recovering something from our culture that has been torn, then it can only happen through art.” The art of Finding Home is Michael Finch’s deeply personal contribution to the culture...

    Terrorism has vaulted to the nation's No. 1 issue as Americans say they are as concerned about attacks as they were after the Boston Marathon bombing in 2013, according to a new poll. A Reuters/Ipsos poll said that virtually everybody has heard of the ISIS attacks in Paris, pushing terrorism into a tie with the economy, not global warming as Democratic candidates have claimed. The poll also found that 60 percent of Americans want Washington to do more to attack ISIS, though they prefer air strikes over troop involvement. The details of the poll:

    Have you looked around lately? Our kids live in a dangerous generation. They are constantly bombarded by seductive imagery. Innocence is threatened at a young age. And our culture isnt doing anything to stem the tide. In fact, its pulling our teens away from purity and pushing them toward promiscuity. Sexual images are not just in an occasional movie or magazinethey are everywhere! While many teens understand and welcome their parents messages about modesty and abstinence, the overwhelming influence of their peers and their culture easily dwarfs those positive messages. There is a near constant pressure forced on teens to...

    Revelations 33:15Yea, though it came to pass that those refusing to believe in the word of the Lord grew in number, and the fatted calves were slaughtered less frequently thanks to the Mark Of The Beast (a.k.a Weight Watchers), it did happen that shepherds keeping watch oer the network television landscape did espy a need for new content.

    Men have it rougher in America than most people realize. In part, thats because theyre one of the few groups (along with white people, conservatives and Christians) its cool to crap on at every opportunity.

    TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) Two years ago, Augustus Sol Invictus walked from central Florida to the Mojave Desert and spent a week fasting and praying, at times thinking he wouldn't survive. In a pagan ritual to give thanks when he returned home, he killed a goat and drank its blood. Now that he's a candidate for U.S. Senate, the story is coming back to bite him. The chairman of the Libertarian Party of Florida has resigned to call attention to Invictus' candidacy in hopes that other party leaders will denounce him. Adrian Wyllie, who was the Libertarian candidate for governor...
