  • They Really Hate Ben Carson

    10/13/2015 10:33:50 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 25 replies ^ | October 13, 2015 | Dennis Prager
    The invective against Dr. Ben Carson coming from the left is extraordinary, even for the left. Now that Carson, one of the pre-eminent brain surgeons in America, has become a viable candidate for president, the left has labelled him everything awful it can come up with. One left-wing columnist, Charles Blow of The New York Times, even disparaged his intelligence. But there were two attacks made this past week that should be beyond the pale even for the left. The first was that Carson "blamed the victims" in the Roseburg, Oregon, community college mass murder. How did that happen? On...
  • Obama's Secular Left are Hypocrites: 'Judge as I say, not as I do'

    10/12/2015 5:15:00 AM PDT · by lifeofgrace · 4 replies ^ | 10/12/2015 | Steve Berman
    The left has a favorite Bible verse, one that even President Obama can’t resist. Jesus said it in the Sermon on the Mount: “Judge not.” Of course, Obama is wont to misquote the Bible whenever he pleases, making up stuff that “the good book says” like “don’t throw stones at glass houses.” (Hint: they didn’t even have glass in Biblical days.) But judging is exactly what the left does, while they tell Christians not to, because, you know, do what I say, not what I do. Let’s take same-sex marriage.  Oh, Christians shouldn’t judge says the liberal elites.  It doesn’t...

    If it's illegal and considered racist for a white, straight business owner to deny service to a gay person or person of color, shouldn't the same be true for a yoga class that bars white people from attending? KIRO Radio's Dori Monson thinks so. Rainier Beach Yoga in Seattle has a class called "yoga for people of color." It started last week and runs once a month. Teresa Wang, co-founder of the specialized class, said it was started by five queer people of color who came together to create a safe space for people of color who might otherwise be...

    Grammy-winning producer Emilio Estefan is not happy with Donald Trump’s anti-Mexican rhetoric — and he’s gathering some friends to take a stand against it, according to Billboard reports that Estefan, 62, has enlisted dozens of friends — including Shakira, Carlos Santana, Thalia, Pepe Aguilar and his wife, singer Gloria Estefan — record We’re All Mexican, which he describes as a musical “celebration of Hispanics and our accomplishments.” The track will also include reggaeton singer Wisin, Wyclef Jean, radio personality Enrique Santos and famed Spanish-American chef José Andrés, and will be released in late September. “There’s a message being sent...

    Some people are of the unfortunate opinion that the John Birch Society is militantly patriotic and a supporter of this nation's military. That is not the case, especially not now. The JBS always was a front group for the European right wing and our own domestic Jew-haters. It was the "blue lodge" for recruiting decent conservatives and, by exposing them a little bit at a time to the classic anti-Jewish line, to eventually recruit them into the anti-Semitic movement proper. But at least when I was a member some thirty years ago the Society's publications didn't openly take potshots at...

And no, they aren't outraged over the abortion giant selling whole baby cadavers in order to keep body parts "intact." Nor are they outraged over Planned Parenthood cutting out the brains of babies while their hearts are still beating. They are, however, suddenly concerned about babies of illegal immigrants born in the United States being called "anchor babies" by GOP presidential candidates.

[…] If you must grill meat, USDA is suggesting things like a “low-sodium & tasty recipe for grilled steak with Criolla sauce.” But there’s not much information on how to make a good burger. When a search for the word “hamburger” is run on the MyPlate site, the first three items...

    One of the most controversial art works of the 1990s is going up for auction, and it could be yours – elephant dung and all – for around $2.3 million. “The Holy Virgin Mary,” a 1996 painting by British artist Chris Ofili, created a firestorm of controversy when it was exhibited at the Brooklyn Museum of Art in 1999. The painting depicts a black Madonna figure baring one breast, which is made from lacquered elephant dung and surrounded by butterfly-like formations of female genitalia (a play on the term putti, a type of cherub depicted in religious art).

Avatar Director James Cameron warned of a future “world that’s in shambles” because of climate change, and said he believes “in ecoterrorism” yet, he owns an impressive private collection of motorcycles, cars, dirt bikes, a yacht, a helicopter, a Humvee fire truck and a $32-million submarine.

The liberal comedian Bill Maher recently claimed that Republicans expose themselves to this critique when they champion the value of hard work and perseverance while simultaneously opposing the inheritance tax. “If the tough love of cutting off free money for the poor is the right thing to do, how can we stand by and do any less for the Conrad Hiltons of the world? They’ve never known the dignity of work either,” Maher insisted recently. “Shouldn’t we...

    WASHINGTON — The stacks of Supreme Court briefs filed on both sides of the same-sex marriage cases to be heard this month are roughly the same height. But they are nonetheless lopsided: There are no major law firms urging the justices to rule against gay marriage. Leading law firms are willing to represent tobacco companies accused of lying about their deadly products, factories that spew pollution, and corporations said to be complicit in torture and murder abroad. But standing up for traditional marriage has turned out to be too much for the elite bar. The arguments have been left to...

But what they don't want to do is talk about a "war on women."

"[Saying] 'Republicans are waging a war on women' actually doesn't test very well," said...

I am not talking about the migrant children fleeing from crime and violence in their home countries in Central America and looking for the opportunity to live a better life. I am talking about the misguided protesters—and the right-wing public officials that egg them on, railing against anything they think even might be an immigrant. Republicans need to get hold of themselves, understand facts and keep their anti-immigrant extremist voices in check. If they don't do it for the country's future, they should at least do it for their own political survival. Republicans cannot afford...

    People who claim to worry about climate change use more electricity than those who do not, a Government study has found. Those who say they are concerned about the prospect of climate change consume more energy than those who say it is “too far into the future to worry about,” the study commissioned by the Department for Energy and Climate Change found. That is in part due to age, as people over 65 are more frugal with electricity but much less concerned about global warming. However, even when pensioners are discounted, there is only a “weak trend” to show that...

  • LETTER: Children should not be sacrificed for gun rights

    To the Editor: Is this the kind of country we want to be — where our children are sacrificed so that a small minority of Americans can have any kind of gun they want? Your child or my child could be collateral damage just so a small minority of Americans can have the pleasure of owning a grenade launcher if they want. Pick which child you want to sacrifice. How about your oldest so that the younger ones might still have a chance at life? Or should it be the youngest since you have invested a lot of time and...

    How’s this for irony … V. Stiviano said a bunch of racist stuff about black people — and TMZ Sports has the footage. Among the lowlights … – “I don’t understand black people. You give them a little bit of money, they don’t know what to do with it.”

    Even though, as a general rule, the leadership of national episcopal conferences is elected by member bishops (c. 452), in Italy (long story made short) the pope personally appoints conference leaders. Pope Francis appointed Bp. Nunzio Galantino as Secretary General of Italian bishop’s conference a couple months ago. Galantino is calling for a “taboo-free discussion” of priestly celibacy, administration of holy Communion to divorced-and-remarried Catholics, and homosexuality (sic: homosexual acts?). His call for a ‘taboo-free discussion’ of these topics suggests, of course, that, till now, their discussion has been hindered by taboos, or at least, that Galantino thinks they have...

    The New York Times, which has actively helped Democrats and the White House perpetuate the phony "war on women" campaign against Republicans, reportedly fired its female executive editor because she complained about pay inequality at the so-called "paper of record." On Wednesday, the Times announced that Dean Baquet, the managing editor, would replace Jill Abramson, becoming the paper's first black executive editor. Abramson was promoted to executive editor with much fanfare in 2011. "Several weeks ago," according to The New Yorker, "Abramson discovered that her pay and her pension benefits as both executive editor and, before that, as managing editor...
