    Germans Protest Islam, Leftwing Media Denounces Putin By Julio Severo On Monday, December 15, some 15,000 people in Germany took part in a demonstration labeled by the German press as ‘xenophobic.’ The demonstration was held by the Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamization of the West (PEGIDA, by its German-language acronym), whose main objective is to oppose Islamic immigration from the Middle East and Africa. Since October, PEGIDA has held weekly rallies against Islam. German chancellor Angela Merkel has condemned PEGIDA, declaring, “There is no place in Germany for those who are instigating hatred against immigrants.” She also denounced the...

    Vandals in Philadelphia struck multiple times over the last two days. The vandalism came during a protest against perceived police brutality. In one of the acts of vandalism, the words "Cop Lives Don't Matter" were spray-painted on a fence. You can see the picture of that below: In another, the vandals defaced a Church with the words "f*** cops" written in spray paint:

    Two NYPD cops were executed yesterday by a black Muslim who declared it an act of revenge for the death of Eric Garner. Today a third cop was shot to death in Florida. Yesterday another cop was shot in St. Louis. #Coplivesdontmatter.These deaths are blood on the hands of Barack Obama, Eric Holder, Al Sharpton and Bill DeBlasio who have been stoking the fires of police hate continuously. Eric Holder claimed that all cops are racist via "unconscious bias": In the past five years, Holder has more than doubled the number of police department probes compared with the previous five...

    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...

    "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,...

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!

    Tragic to know that it will soon be Christmas for most everyone else but not for the families of Officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu, who, along with justice, will need everyone’s most fervent prayers. “Officers down!” have to be the two most tragic words ever heard over police radios. 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...

    Al Sharpton, who has been pushing an agenda of racial division for decades, decried the deaths of two innocent NYPD officers tonight. Yet, despite the fact that his actions in propagating lies about Ferguson inflamed the situation, he didn’t even have the common decency to get his condolences right. Sharpton, who for months has been saying that “the fight ain’t over” against police, took to Twitter to distance himself from the horrendous murders of Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos. The disgraced race-hustler stumbled over himself to post the following tweet. This is the original tweet, unedited: “An eye for an...

Go now, become a Democrat — and then form an alliance with the wife of the man the Bushes affectionately call their “brother from another mother.” That being the woman George W. Bush has dubbed as being “like my sister-in-law” — Hillary Clinton. After all, the Bush/Clinton...

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...

We're excited to sell average Cubans a couple of  Chevys?  Or perhaps three of four Teslas? How?  Cubans are broke. Fifty cars were sold in Cuba during the past 6 months.  The Castros and the...

    Friday, December 19, 2014 Saving Comrade Castro Posted by Daniel Greenfield @ the Sultan Knish blog The Soviet Union did not have to fall. If Carter had won a second term and Mondale had succeeded him, the Communist dictatorship might have received the outside help it needed to survive. And we would still be living under the shadow of the Cold War. Carter couldn’t save the Soviet Union, but he did his best to save Castro, visiting Fidel and Raul in Cuba where the second worst president in American history described his meeting with Castro as a greeting among “old...

    Judge Arthur Schwab of the Western District of Pennsylvania ruled that portions of President Obama's unilateral action on illegal immigrants violate the US Constitution's separation of powers. “The alleged grounds of prosecutorial discretion are inadequate to support the totality of what he has tried to do,” Schwab said. “He can decline to prosecute these lawbreakers. 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...

      TRIGGER WARNING* This has to be the best real estate deal since Whitewater.  Through a complex series of events that even our 24-hour news junkies have trouble following, Al Sharpton will now get to produce rap music in Cuba, while the U.S. sets up its embassy on the current site of North Korea’s diplomatic mission in Havana.  And Kim Jong Un will get to share a Cohiba cigar with Dennis Rodman, Al Sharpton, Amy Pascal and President Obama. It’s all in this one infographic.   Sony Pictures greenlights a film titled The Interview, a comedy which depicts the assassination...
  • FROM CONGRESSMAN GIBBS IN OHIO RE: MY MESSAGE TO HIM ABOUT CONTINUING APPROPRIATIONS

    December 19, 2014 Dear Ms. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx: Thank you for contacting my office regarding H.R. 83, the Consolidated and Further Continuing Appropriations Act of 2015. 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 House passed eight appropriations bills this summer which, unfortunately, were never taken up in the...

    The election of Comrade Bill de Blasio as mayor of New York City has been and will continue to be, a gift to conservatives and even Republicans. From the very beginning of his adult life Comrade Bill has made it clear that he is an enemy of America. He even illegally honeymooned in Cuba. De Blasio is a socialist’s dream and has governed as a heavy handed thug ever since. What is even better is that he is on the national stage and there is no way the Democrats can hide him. Thus far he has given conservatives great starting...

    Anything that might change the power structure is bound to be fought by both Democrats and Republicans, using any sleazy, underhanded and destructive means that can be concocted For many years average Americans, regardless of color, gender, national origin, religious affiliation (or lack of any religion), level of formal education or any other cultural identity have despised Democrat politicians more than Republican politicians. Why would this be so? Largely it can be assumed that Republicans have had a much better track record of hiding their elitism than Democrats have. Professor Gruber recently provided evidence of this elitism by simply stating...

    The bogeyman in the Lindt Chocolate café won't go away because Australia's Prime Minister wants to put the term "Islamic State" out of sight and out of mind. 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...

    President Obama will unilaterally remove most of the embargo on Cuba, according to John Kavulich of the U.S.-Cuba Trade and Economic Council and White House officials. According to Mr. Kavulich, by himself, President Obama will remove nearly all restrictions on Cuba and will forgo Congress. The “embargo” will still exist, but it will be in name only. “The embargo is a container — it’s been that way since President Eisenhower — that’s had regulations and laws put into it and taken out of it and mixed about,” Mr. Kavulich said. “President Obama is saying, ‘I’m going to leave a shell,...
