  • The Hot Air to Expect From the Paris Climate Talks

    The Blaze ^ | Nov. 23, 2015 9:11am
    Starting November 30, people from all around the world will be (or at least should be) converging towards Paris for the much-talked Climate Conference. As can be expected from such an event, the climate hysteria will be at the forefront of the talks in hopes to solve the (imaginary) climate problem. Yes, imaginary. Most of what you hear about climate in the media is either false or hidden from your sight – fueling fear is very profitable for the media. So no, the climate is not getting hotter and hotter contrary to what the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration claims....
  • The Marxist Core of the Catholic Campaign for Human Development

    The annual national collection for the Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD) is this weekend. What many Catholics do not realize is that at the very core of the CCHD is a philosophy of revolutionary leftist ideologies. Over the years, the CCHD has been rightly criticized for funding organizations that are themselves promoting contraception, homosexuality, abortion, prostitution, and socialism. But these issues are only symptoms of an overall thrust that is aimed directly at convincing Catholics to fund Marxist revolution in the United States. The intent of this article, while certainly not exhaustive, is to help Catholics understand how the...
  • Islamic socialism [Marxism]

    wiki ^ | Excerpted from wiki
    Abu Dharr al-Ghifari, a Companion of Prophet Muhammad, is credited by many as a principal antecedent of Islamic socialism.[1][2][3][4][5] He protested against the accumulation of wealth by the ruling class during 'Uthman's caliphate and urged the equitable redistribution of wealth. The first Muslim Caliph Abu Bakr introduced a guaranteed minimum standard of income, granting each man, woman, and child ten dirhams annually; this was later increased to twenty dirhams.[6] The first experimental Islamic commune was established during the Russian Revolution of 1917 as part of the Waisi movement, an early supporter of the Soviet government. The Muslim Socialist Committee of...

    On Oct. 31, 2010, a dozen Islamist gunmen stormed the Catholic cathedral of Our Lady of Salvation, in Baghdad. Striking during a service, they butchered some 60 priests and worshipers, notionally in revenge for insults to Islam. Ghastly as that crime might be in its own right, atrocities of this kind are quite commonplace around the world. Mobs sack churches in Egypt, Nigerian suicide bombers target worshiping congregations, and Eritrea has its hellish concentration camps for Christians. "Christians today," writes John L. Allen Jr., "indisputably are the most persecuted religious body on the planet." So widespread and systematic are the...

    Those of us who oppose the expansion of governmental controls often get the retort, "You’re just using a slippery slope argument; the bad consequences you foresee are extremely unlikely to happen." Ah, but predicted bad consequences often do happen. As evidence, I offer the following instance. In 2013, a student in Palatine Township High School (Illinois) complained about sexual discrimination to the federal Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights (OCR). The allegedly illegal "discrimination" suffered was because the school refused to allow the student, a male who “identifies” as a female, to use the girls' locker room. The applicable...

    ".......It is here where the modern Left made its transition away from communism into a postmodern existentialism. Dr. Hicks strongly argues that postmodernism is rooted in the Counter Enlightenment movement featuring German superstars such as Kant, Hegel, Nietzsche, and Heidegger. According to Hicks, postmodernism favors subjectivity over objectivity, the inadequacy of language to communicate over reason and truth, various collective multicultural groupings over individual identity and autonomy, willpower over realistic experience rooted in rational analysis, communalism and solidarity over individualism in values, markets and politics, and finally, suspicion, if not hostility, toward science and technology. As such, the postmodern critique...

    After a close race for mayor in the Colombian capital of Bogotá, former Mayor Enrique Peñalosa emerged victorious last Sunday to regain his old post with one-third of the vote. Besides his own proposals, Peñalosa, of the center-right Radical Change party, was undoubtedly favored by the fact that Bogotá residents had grown tired of 12 years of leftist rule in the city. In the last decade, city infrastructure has decayed, crime has increased, and poor planning surrounding the Integrated Transportation System has worsened public mobility. Political and security analyst John Marulanda believes the key to Peñalosa’s victory was his decision...

"I call him a socialist-slash-communist, because that's what he is." Well, no. The terms "socialist" and "communist" are often confused, thanks in large part to the Cold War. Layer on top of that the nuance of the term "democratic socialist," which is how Sanders describes himself, and it's easy to see why people might generally be confused...

    The Obama administration's increasingly controversial Justice Department, in partnership with the ultra-leftist Southern Poverty Law Center, announced the creation of a new czar position to focus on domestic terrorism especially the alleged threat from Christians and Americans with anti-government views. While ostensibly created to serve as a coordination office overseeing domestic terror cases, critics and analysts are sounding the alarm, warning that the administration is plotting to go after its political opponents with the full force of the federal government. The impetus for the Obama DOJ's new focus on conservatives, libertarians, Christians, and others appears to be the Southern...

    Reich argues that the major problem with the market of today is not that the government has intruded too much, as Republicans generally contend, but that the laws and regulations necessary for a market are tilted in the favor of wealthy individuals and corporations who can buy influence in the political world, rather than average people, i.e the many, who cannot. In other words, the free market vs. government debate is largely a pointless distraction from what should be the real debate: Does the market and the rules that establish it work for everyone, or just the few at top...

    "Matt Bruenig is researcher of poverty and welfare systems at the think tank Demos." By now, it is well established that capitalism is fundamentally built upon threats of force. As libertarian philosophers Robert Nozick and Matt Zwolinski have explained, the only way to turn unowned natural resources (such as land, minerals and other goods) into privately owned property is by violently preventing all others from using them. This one-sided exclusion destroys freedom of movement and cuts many people off from the things that they need to survive.

After winning Labour's top job by a landslide earlier this month, Jeremy Corbyn appointed John McDonnell - a former trade unionist who backs renationalising banks and imposing wealth taxes - as his finance minister-in-waiting.

    What is "income inequality" exactly? It is a devious euphemism for the Free Market and the American Dream. Devious, because in this way communists can attack the Free Market and the American Dream without directly seeming to do so. Literally millions of people have immigrated here legally and trespassed illegally hoping and praying "Please God, let there be some income inequality here" because in their countries of origin there is none. In those third country hell-holes they fled from people are born poor, live poor and die poor. It is absolute income equality there, and likely heralded as a "workers...

    Apparently all of that anti-imperialist rhetoric from Caracas was just a farce for public consumption. As Venezuelas economy implodes amid skyrocketing inflation and crippling shortages of practically everything, Socialist strongman Nicols Maduro (shown) has a new plan to prop up his imploding regime: annex two thirds of neighboring Guyanas territory and almost one third of its population. The area eyed by Maduros autocracy is especially noteworthy now that potentially lucrative oil deposits have been discovered offshore. Unsurprisingly, a powerful alliance of the regions socialist strongmen and their allies has sided with the regime in Venezuela. Talk of war is escalating....

    Its the law of the jungle in Venezuela, as shopping for groceries becomes an increasingly dangerous activity. As the shortage crisis worsens, more and more angry mobs are raiding the nations supermarkets, looting whatever basic goods they can find.+ During the first half of 2015, the Venezuelan Observatory for Social Conflict (OVCS) registered no fewer than 132 incidents of looting or attempted looting at various stores throughout the country. In addition, Venezuelan consumers staged over 500 protests that condemned the lack of available products at state-run grocery stores, markets, and pharmacies.+ The OVCS has documented at least 132 incidents of...
  • Obama ignores Californias green power experience

    San Diego Union-Tribune ^ | August 3, 2015 | By Dan McSwain
    With his Clean Power Plan, President Barack Obama is repeating Californias expensive mistake of ignoring the engineering realities of saving the planet and imposing political quotas requiring solar, wind and other renewable energy sources. The big problem is that solar and wind energy are inherently unreliable. Solar power plummets on cloudy days, and falls to zero at sundown. Same goes with wind turbines on a windless evening. In 2006, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and the Legislature required utilities to use renewables for 20 percent of their power, a figure later increased to 33 percent by 2020. If these seem like suspiciously...
  • Does Global Warming Actually Increase Antarctic Sea Ice?

    Discovery News ^ | July 31, 2015 | BY PATRICK J. KIGER
    People who insist that climate change isnt happening often try to disprove it by pointing to what they see as contradictory phenomena. One of their most visually compelling arguments has centered upon Antarctic sea ice, which expanded to reach record levels in 2014. If the planet really is warming, they ask, then shouldnt the ice in the southern ocean be melting? But now, in a new, not-yet-published paper, James Hansen, former director of the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies, and colleagues push back even harder. They argue that the increase in Antarctic sea ice not only doesnt refute climate...
  • Climate models are even more accurate than you thought

    Guardian UK ^ | July 31, 2015 | by Dana Nuccitelli
    Global climate models arent given nearly enough credit for their accurate global temperature change projections. As the 2014 IPCC report showed, observed global surface temperature changes have been within the range of climate model simulations. Now a new study shows that the models were even more accurate than previously thought. In previous evaluations like the one done by the IPCC, climate model simulations of global surface air temperature were compared to global surface temperature observational records like HadCRUT4. However, over the oceans, HadCRUT4 uses sea surface temperatures rather than air temperatures. Theres a common myth that models are unreliable, often...

    New York's new $15 minimum wage for fast food workers applies to more than 100 brands doing business in the state. The only criteria: They must operate in at least 30 locations nationwide. Laura Jankowski owns three Tropical Smoothie Cafe franchises on Long Island. The brand has 16 locations in New York and more than 400 nationwide. Research suggests that most fast food workers in New York are 22 or older. But Jankowski says the vast majority of her employees are high school and college students. Most earn $8.75 an hour but her shift leaders earn $9.75. The new higher...

    Liberation theology, of which not much has been heard for two decades, is back in the news. But what is not being mentioned is its origins. It was not invented by Latin American Catholics. It was developed by the KGB. The man who is now the head of the Russian Orthodox Church, Patriarch Kirill, secretly worked for the KGB under the code name Mikhailov and spent four decades promoting liberation theology, which we at the top of the Eastern European intelligence community nicknamed Christianized Marxism. Liberation theology has been generally understood to be a marriage of Marxism and Christianity. What...

At a recent event for female bloggers, BlackLivesMatter leaders had a crowd of thousands repeating lines from a letter written by Shakur that include an explicit reference to the Communist Manifesto. The BlackLivesMatter group, which has met with President Obama and largely been given a free pass by the media, has skyrocketed to national prominence after its involvement with unrest and rioting in Ferguson, Baltimore, and a recent takeover of events...

    Hodges and other leaders at the Vatican for a two-day global climate conference. After a day spent hearing Pope Francis and mayors from across the world speak at the Vatican on climate change and human trafficking, Minneapolis Mayor Betsy Hodges said shes been inspired to focus more on the links between sustainability and poverty. I really, profoundly understand in a new way that environmental justice is not just a sidebar to climate change action, she said in a phone call from the Vatican on Tuesday. And that its not just a sidebar to social justice work. Hodges was one of...

    Marx and Engels ten-point plan for imposing Communism includes drastic anti-family measures many Americans support today. If youve never read The Communist Manifesto by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels, published in 1848, you shouldespecially right now. To be sure, reading this awful screed against human nature can be confusing, let alone unsatisfying and thoroughly unedifying. What do the authors mean, for example, when they screech: Abolition of the family! Even the most radical flare up at this infamous proposal of the Communists? They are but one stop in a long line of leftists such as Robert Owen, Charles Fourier, Vladimir...
