  • Why is Israel blamed for evil while Islamic nations are not?

    Dan Miller's Blog ^ | December 21, 2014 | Dan Miller
    Blaming Israel for evil, rather than her many Islamic neighbors and enemies, is -- despite the views of Obama and His colleagues -- contrary to American values. Doing so is based on Jew hatred, envy of success, and the multicultural absurdity that no culture or religion is better or worse than any other. As I argued most recently here and here, Israel is fighting for her survival against regimes that want her to cease to exist because she is Jewish, not Islamic, and her government is free and democratic, not dictatorial. She is, therefore, an outsider in the Middle East. This video identifies many of the reasons why Israel is viewed harshly by other Western civilizations while Islamic nations, which...

    Sunday on Fox News Channel’s “Media Buzz,” investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson said the CDC is not putting out the current information on how many potential cases of Ebola they are currently tracking in the Untied States. Attkisson said, “I called CDC not long ago and I said how many cases are being monitored in the United States and they said 1,400. I said, ‘Where are these updates on your website? ‘ They said they’re not putting it on the web.

    "The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants." So observed a sanguine Thomas Jefferson in 1787, responding to news of violent uprising in Massachusetts. But who ranks as a patriot? And what counts as tyranny? As it turns out, it depends on skin color. Just look in a history textbook. If whites are involved, uprisings tend to be framed as rebellions. Flip through the index of any social studies text, and you'll find several of them: Bacon's Rebellion, Shays's Rebellion, Dorr's Rebellion. The list goes on. When blacks are involved,...

    The United Nations Arms Trade Treaty goes into effect on December 24th. Through that date, Coach is Right will provide background and current information concerning the dangers this treaty poses to the American people and their freedom. President Obama has been re-elected since this piece was written and Republicans secured a massive, midterm victory in 2014. The midterm results should guarantee an incoming Senate that would not ratify the Arms Trade Treaty. But conservative voters were certainly betrayed by the vote of the Republican House on the Omnibus Spending Bill a few days ago. First published on July 13, 2012...

    The State Department’s Under-Secretary for Arms Control and International Security, Rose Gottemoeller, proudly bragged to a Brookings Institution gathering that “our progress toward total nuclear disarmament is now 85% of the way there. If we can maintain the pace, our last nuclear device will be moth-balled before President Obama completes his term.” Gottemoeller asserted that “it is our fervent hope that our example will inspire others to follow suit” and maintained that “a nuclear-free world will be a safer world.” Whether either of these aspirations would bear out is unknown.

Saturday’s assassination of two New York Police Department officers (whose killer, Ismaaiyl Brinsley, committed suicide immediately afterward ) is a shock which will hopefully shake some sense into protesters chanting, ”Hands Up! Don’t Shoot!” and ”I Can’t Breathe!” It’s rumored he was a fugitive and even posted on Instagram, ” They Take 1 Of Ours…Let’s Take 2 of Theirs,” and ended his tirade with, “This May Be...

NYPD officers, 40-year-old Rafael Ramos and 32-year-old Wenjian Liu, were shot, point blank, at approximately 2:47 p.m., this afternoon. The tragedy is all the more heart-rending that the officers were working overtime as part of an anti-terrorism drill in Bedford-Stuyvesant when they were shot in the head by a lone...

    As the United States staggers toward the seventh year of Barack Obama’s tenure in the White House, a growing disquiet permeates the ranks of the American left. After six years of the most liberal President since Jimmy Carter, the nation doesn’t seem to be asking for a second helping. Even though the multiyear rollout of Obamacare was carefully crafted to put all the popular features up front, delaying less popular changes into the far future, the program remains unpopular. Trust in the fairness and competence of government is pushing toward new lows in the polls, even though the government is...

    After seven hours of deliberation, the jury found Mitrel Anderson not guilty of all charges in the stabbing death of DeMario Lee.  The incident occurred in Lacrosse, Wisconsin last year.  Anderson did not deny killing Lee, but had always contended that his actions were in self defense. Anderson was confronted by three men in the bathroom of a convenience store.   Anderson and Lee had known each other since childhood, but the relationship had soured.  Lee had publicly threatened Anderson and told him that he would kill him.   From kwwl.com, the prosecutor stated in closing arguments: "When you're getting roughed...

    Two were satirical in nature. One was wishful thinking. The official responses to them could not have been more different. Sony has canceled the release of the "The Interview", a movie about the assassination of North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un, in response to terror threats made by those who call themselves the "Guardians of Peace." A Sony spokesman said the studio “has no further release plans” for the $44 million comedy. The cancellation was a sharp defeat for the studio, which for months had stood behind the film and its plot as being within its creative rights, even as North...

That is the limit of his discretion. He does not have the authority to issue them identity papers that would make them eligible for employment or government benefits that existing law prohibits.” Democratic U.S. Senators Dick Durbin (Ill) and Richard Blumenthal (Conn) contend that Schwab...

As your Representative in Congress, I appreciate your input on this issue. The 2015 Omnibus Appropriations bill contains many important provisions that will protect jobs, stop wasteful spending, rein in government overreach, and bolster our national security efforts. Ideally, appropriations would be passed through regular order each year, rather than combined in an omnibus spending bill at the last minute.

The joint press conference given by Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott on 16 December after the siege at the Lindt Chocolate café in Martin Place had finally ended - was particularly noteworthy for certain viewpoints expressed by Mr Abbott during that conference. The Prime Minister - flanked by NSW Premier Mike Baird, Commissioner Colvin of the Federal Australian Police and Deputy Commissioner Burn of the New South Wales Police—made the following statement:...

    As long as Western leaders take to mics warning the unwashed masses never to refer to terrorism as terrorism, it’s going to be happy hunting for worldwide terrorists When terrorists look in the rear view mirror after their latest slaughterhouse jihad in any land, they clearly see the cowardice of all western leaders and plenty of opportunities in what millennials would call ‘wiggle room’. Aware right down to their AK-47 tingling trigger fingers, the terrorists of today and tomorrow know that they will never be I’D’d as ‘terrorists’ because the leaders of the countries they strike will never allow the...

    Writing for the Acton Institute, Joe Carter explains that, "The U.S. began imposing sanctions against Cuba after Fidel Castro seized power in 1959, nationalized the economy, and stole more than $1 billion in American assets on the island. Diplomatic relations between the United States and Cuba broke off in 1961 as tensions between the two nations increased after Cuba signed a trade agreement with the Soviet Union. Even though the Cold War ended, not much has changed in the relationship between Cuba and the U.S." Why is it that even though Cuba hasn't changed at all and is as repressive...

    PBS probably wasn’t expecting the poll numbers they got when they ran a recent poll on gun control. The question asked was: Would you support more restrictions on guns in your state? The choices were: Yes. Increased regulations on firearms are necessary to prevent another tragedy like the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary. No. Laws like this unnecessarily punish lawful gun owners and will do little to prevent mass shootings. Unsure. It’s important to keep the weapons out of the wrong hands, but this may not be the solution. The results with over 100,000 votes cast were startling. 95% (nearly...

    In an upcoming People magazine interview, Barack and Michelle Obama sit down and discuss life as the First Oppressed Couple of the United States. Hoping to shed light and relate to recent events in Ferguson, Missouri, and New York City, Barack reached into the upstairs White House bedroom of his mind and called upon his famous imaginary son to make an appearance: The small irritations or indignities that we experience are nothing compared to what a previous generation experienced,” President Obama said. “It’s one thing for me to be mistaken for a waiter at a gala. It’s another thing for...

    A protective order can be effective.  Especially if it is backed up with a gun.  Protective orders are meant to be backed with armed force.  The problem is that in many cases, armed agents of the state either arrive too late to be of help, or they cannot stay around long enough to provide effective protection.  But when the armed force is in the form of the person who asked for the protective order, the protection is multiplied many times.  In this case out of Indiana, the suspect, Jeffrey Frakes, had been released from jail the day before.From wishtv.com:...

    To the Catholic leaders who wish to help the Cuban people, my prayers, too, that you would realize the evil that has descended upon our country and the Church. Your purpose is to save souls, not to be used as pawns for the Devil Growing up as a child of conservative parents in a Catholic environment, today, after 53 years living in the USA, I find a new world that is upside down. When Fidel Castro came to Cuba, soon after there were rumors of the government takeover of private schools. I was sent as a young teen to the...

    The New Year worry for a watching world is if Obama can open up channels for drastic policy changes in Cuba without the knowledge of the American population and Congress, when will he do the same for Iran? Just as Fidel Castro became Cuba’s dictator when he and his guerrillas triumphantly entered Havana on January 7, 1959, President Barack Obama became America’s dictator on Dec. 17, 2014. Swaggering into Havana dressed in army fatigues with his signature cigar, Castro claimed the island as his own. Like a thief making off with a nation in the middle of the night, Obama...
