  • Did Obama use a "No True Scotsman" fallacy when talking recently about Islam and Muslims?

    Some people - and quite a few atheists - have made hay over Obama's comments, primary among them being Obama's comment that "No religion condones the killing of innocents." Inherent within Obama's statement is that no TRUE Muslim would ever kill innocent people, be they men, women or children. As such, this would fall within the parameters of the "No True Scotsman" fallacy. The only problem with this is that it leaves Christians open to the charge that true Christians have (for example) bombed abortion clinics, takes away from Christians the ability to say that "No true Christian would ever...

    With the first US cases of Ebola being diagnosed in Dallas, Texas, you hypochondriacs may be panicked. Relax. There’s nothing to see here, nothing to worry about, authorities have everything handled. Top officials at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital tell us the first unidentified patient is in isolation. The hospital is following recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control to keep everybody, doctors, patients, staff, reporters, politicians, everybody, safe. Yes. They forgot to mention that the patient was first sent home after he told them he was from Liberia, ground zero. But, there’s nothing to see here. The CDC is on...

    With the Iran nuclear talks now in their endgame and the prospect of a very different political environment in Washington next year if Republicans capture the Senate, Obama officials are in overdrive to achieve their dream of a legacy agreement with Tehran so that President Obama can claim he halted the threat from the Iranian nuclear program. Their goal is to get a final agreement before the nuclear talks are scheduled to end November 24. While the Obama administration has long been desperate to get such an agreement, two recent ill-advised American concessions and a string of misleading statements and...

    According to Iran expert Michael Ledine, Obama had sent William Green Miller to Tehran before Obama assumed office to relay the message that Iran-US relationship would change. In 2008, he sent Ambassador Miller to a secret trip to Iran to let Iran know that things would change when he became president. I was told that during the campaign, Miller told me that it was true. Meanwhile this administration trashes Israel for building settlements.

    The quintessential question of Watergate was “what did the President know and when did he know it?” Obamagate, the vast scandal that encompasses an entire presidency, offers a preemptive answer. Obama didn’t know anything and he never knew it. At least not until, like smuggling weapons to druglords, bugging journalists, IRSing his political enemies and killing vets, his right hand found out about what his left hand was doing from the morning paper. After skipping 58% of his daily intelligence briefings in Term 1 and 59% of them in Term 2, he went on 60 Minutes and blamed intelligence agencies...

    There is a ghost in the White House, a spirit disconnected from this world, whisking from room to room, past staff, uninterested in their conversations. Unfortunately for us, the ghost is the president of the United States. Barack Obama loves being president – the perks, the privilege, the pomp and circumstance. It’s the job that bores him. Unlike community organizing, the Illinois State Senate, or even the U.S. Senate, there’s only one president. They can’t just show up when they want or bleed into the background when they’d rather be doing other things. President Obama loves the campaign trail. He...

    The rising threat of Ebola has brought two things into perspective: capitalism and oil. Money and fossil fuels have reminded us that Ebola would have spread beyond Africa decades ago without them. As the virus spreads further than it ever has because of sociological and economic changes in Africa, we're quickly learning to appreciate the advancements that wouldn't have been possible without oil and capitalism. West Africa is more densely populated now than it was during the first Ebola outbreak in 1976. Roads, economic advancements and sprawling communities have changed the region significantly and contributed to the spread of Ebola....

The administration took no steps pursuant to that federal law, however, to block people like him from...

    -SNIP- Holder appears undeterred in his quest to ban federal agents from trying to prevent domestic Islamist terrorism by investigating hubs of suspected jihadist activities. If the ban on ‘religious profiling’ is enforced, federal agents will no longer be able to conduct surveillance inside even the most radical of US mosques, where nearly all recent US based jihadists have been recruited, trained and dispatched. SNIP- Had such prohibitions against even considering the religious beliefs or associations of suspected jihadist elements been in effect, many recent Federal indictments of terrorists could never have been obtained, since nearly ever single one of...

    "In West Africa, we are surging the response not only of CDC where we already have more than 130 people in the field, but also throughout the U.S. government. The president has leaned forward to make sure we're acting very proactively there, and the Defense Department is on the ground already strengthening the response," Centers for Disease Control Director Dr. Tom Frieden told reporters in a Tuesday evening briefing.

    On July 30, 1974, President Nixon released the White House tape recordings to comply with a U.S. Supreme Court order. A day earlier, the House Judiciary Committee approved Articles of Impeachment. Article 2 dealt with “abuse of power.” The first impeachment count, 40 years ago, complained that the President attempted to use the Internal Revenue Service to harass his enemies. (1) He has, acting personally and through his subordinated and agents,endeavored to obtain from the Internal Revenue Service, in violation of the constitutional rights of citizens, confidential information contained in income tax returns for purposes not authorized by law,...

    Paramedics who transported the now-confirmed Ebola patient to a Dallas hospital have tested negative for the virus, Dallas County Health and Human Services Director Zachary Thompson said Wednesday. Thompson said friends and family of the patient are still under close observation, but there is no second case. Despite the negative tests, the paramedics also will be closely monitored for symptoms until the known incubation period for the virus has passed. "Given how sick this person could have been during the time frame, we would not be shocked" if there was a second case, Thompson said. "But do we have a...

    The Obama administration is initiating a program to give refugee status to some young people from Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador in response to the influx of unaccompanied minors arriving at the U.S.-Mexico border. Under the program, immigrants from those countries who are lawfully in the United States will be able to request that child relatives still in those three countries be resettled in the United States as refugees. The program would establish in-country processing to screen the young people to determine if they qualify to join relatives in the U.S.

    Just as today’s opinion makers seek to divorce Islam from its impact — for example brutal conquest, forced conversion, religiously-sanctioned sex slavery, beheadings — past opinion makers worked equally hard to divorce communism from its impact — for example, brutal conquest, forced collectivization, concentration camps or gulags, mass murder. And this worked. …Unlike Nazism, Communism has never been judged guilty or even held responsible for the carnage and suffering it has caused. On the contrary, it remains a source of liberal, statist ideas... ...these belief systems [Communism and Islamic supremacism], both hostile to our Constitutional liberties remain protected by silence....

    It’s funny how President Obama is always talking about “I” and “me” whenever it makes him look good, but suddenly it’s “they” and “we” when mistakes are made. For instance, for years Obama boasted about how he ended the Iraq War and how he withdrew American troops. “You know I say what I mean and I mean what I say,” he boasted on the campaign trail in 2012. “I said I’d end the war in Iraq. I ended it.” Then, over the summer, as one Iraqi city after another fell to Islamic State militants, and as critics insisted that Obama’s...
