    The secular reprobate mind is filled with violence, moral relativism and lawlessness designs and its actions have ravished this nation since the 60's beyond all recognition of what the founding fathers envisioned. Let us first look at the barbaric act of abortion. Since 1973 there has been 55 million abortions of our American children. May I say that NO gun has ever achieved that statistic not even all the combined arsenal of WW2! The abortion agenda of the Left is the holy grail of their godless ideology. The abortion ideology is a narcissistic ideology, which at its core is rooted...

    The Knesset: 61 years of parliamentary democracy in Israel. But do its members properly love their country? Commenting on the Torah portion, the Life of Sara, Rabbi Matis Weinberg writes: “With the Cave of Machpela, Avraham discovered … the intensity of his love of Sara, the depth of his roots in the earth, and his own need to remain rooted …” In a marginal note, Weinberg quotes Simone Weil: “To be rooted is perhaps the most important and the least recognized need of the human soul.” How pallid is the love displayed by Israel’s secular and religious Zionists. How tamely...

    The media is working hard to convince you that they caught Ted Cruz in a lie about working with John Boehner. But they are the ones lying, as usual. During an interview hosted by Stanford in Government (SIG) and the Stanford Speakers Bureau, former House Speaker John Boehner referred to presidential candidate Ted Cruz as Lucifer in the flesh. He continued, I have Democrat friends and Republican friends. I get along with almost everyone, but I have never worked with a more miserable son of a bitch in my life. But Boehner did not work with Ted Cruz. Boehner only...

  • When You Ban the Sale of Ivory, You Ban Elephants

    The Cato Institute ^ | January 21, 2013 | Doug Bandow
    Elephant poaching is rampant throughout Africa. Unfortunately, Western nations have exacerbated the problem by banning the sale of ivory. Elephants are dying as a result. The West should reopen the ivory trade. Artists and artisans have used ivory for thousands of years. Unfortunately, theres no easy way to get tusks off a live elephant. So in 1989 the international sale of new ivory products was prohibited. Concluded analyst Peter Fitzmaurice, with most nations adhering closely to the ban, the legal ivory trade has been decimated and value of this natural resource for range countries has been vastly diminished. Nevertheless, the...

    When Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump declared he was the presumptive nominee this week, much news coverage challenged him on it.

The number of Republican voters who believe Mr. Trump will be the nominee has risen by 18 percentage points in less than a week. The poll analysis cites his sweeping primary victories in New York and five other states in recent days as deciding factors. To show...

Its particularly telling that shes gotten fewer votes in 2016 than she did in 2008, especially because of the fact that the 2008 race was a three-way race for some time between Clinton, now President Barack Obama, and ex-Sen.

But Harper's colleague Lorena Gonzalez said Wayne's movies showed a lot of Native Americans being killed and that they sanctioned the white occupation of the continent.

The subsequent boost in what was already high GOP turnout comes as voters in New York, Pennsylvania and several other populous states had the rare opportunity this year in helping to choose the partys nominee.

    In the second half of the 20th century, conventional wisdom in the medical community held that overconsumption of saturated fats the kind found in milk, cheese, meats and butter was dangerous. And so, between 1968 and 1973, a well-planned, well-executed study involving more than 9,000 patients was performed to test this widely accepted relationship between diet and heart disease. The results of the Minnesota Coronary Experiment were notable for two reasons. First, the findings contradicted much of what was believed at the time: The study demonstrated that people who ate a diet rich in saturated fats did not...
  • Clinton's America Turns To Lawless Mexico, In Burlingame, CA (Vanity)

    Sad.....to see what our once great country has turned into. Protests in the America of Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders & the Democrat Party have turned from peaceful protests & points of view, to violent riots with Mexican Illegals, Thugs, Malcontents, waving Mexican flags in America, when their loyalty should be to the American Republic. In Burlingame, California, they cursed, they flew multiple Mexican flags, they beat up innocent bystanders and Trump rally attendees, threw untold numbers of eggs, stones, other debris at police & innocents, tore down police barricades and tossed them into the streets. They forcibly tried to prevent...

    Thankfully, he is out of society now, but it took three rapes and one attempted rape for the courts to finally stop him. Not only that, but this same man attempted his fourth rape while he was on bail. This shows how little he cares about his crimes or for his society. We saw the rape epidemic begin last year in Europe with the refugee invasion prompted by German Chancellor Merkel. Some places, such as Malmo, Sweden, are already predominately Muslim and known for being centers of rape and sexual assault against non-Muslim women. Expect things to get worse all...

    BURLINGAME, Calif. Donald J. Trump got a taste on Friday of what his next month of campaigning in California could be like. He was forced to exit his motorcade and walk through a field, climbing an embankment with Secret Service agents helping him, to avoid angry demonstrators on the street. We went under a fence and through a fence, and oh, boy, it felt like I was crossing the border, actually, Mr. Trump said when he finally made it to a ballroom to speak at Californias Republican Party convention. For the next 25 minutes, though, Mr. Trump spoke little...

    A survey of African-American and Latino communities found most believe addressing gun violence can lead to improved police-community relations and reduced rates of incarceration, according to a new report. The Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies, the Urban Institute and the Joyce Foundation commissioned the study, which was based on a national survey of 1,200 African-American and Latino likely voters and four focus groups in Atlanta and Milwaukee. "I think people are coming to grips that we can't address these issues in isolation," said Reggie Moore, director of Milwaukee's Office of Violence Prevention. He also referenced the survey's finding...

    Around 6,000 Egyptians, almost all of them Coptic Christians, have entered Israel to attend the annual Holy Fire ceremony at Jerusalem’s Church of the Holy Sepulchre on Saturday. There has been a sharp rise recently in pilgrimages to Jerusalem by Egyptian Copts, after the Coptic patriarch, Pope Tawadros II, in effect rolled back a ban imposed by a predecessor in 1980, in the wake of the Egyptian-Israeli peace treaty. Tawadros himself visited Israel in November for the funeral of Archbishop Anba Abraham, the Coptic Orthodox Metropolitan Archbishop of Jerusalem and the Near East.

    After Kalvari, the subsequent five submarines will be delivered at a gap of nine months each. When it comes to submarines, a usually buoyant Indian Navy (IN) experiences what can be termed as a 'mood swing'. However, this Sunday, there is reason to be upbeat. Its first French-designed conventional, diesel electric submarine in over 15 years, the Kalvari, is going to sea. Credible sources associated with the project (code named Project 75) have confirmed that Harbour Acceptance Trials (HATs) are 'largely complete' and she has been readied for 'Sea Trials', indicating the final stage of checks before she becomes a...
