    Egypt’s new Islamist President Mohammed Morsi on Wednesday used his first speech at the United Nations to demand curbs on Western free speech rights and “an end to all forms of occupation of Arab lands.” Morsi also used his U.S. speech to push his revolutionary mix of Islamic and progressive demands .. that UN countries establish a “new global economic governance”; and that Western countries continue to transfer aid and technology to Egypt’s government and poverty-stricken population. Much of his emphasis was on the establishment of a Palestinian state. “My duty [is] to support our Palestinian brothers and sisters …...

    NEW YORK (Reuters) - Supporters of former Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders on Saturday expressed anger and vindication over leaked comments made by Hillary Clinton to banks and big business that appeared to confirm their fears about her support for global trade and tendency to cozy up to Wall Street. Clinton, who needs Sanders' coalition of young and left-leaning voters to propel her to the presidency, pushes for open trade and open borders in one of the speeches, and takes a conciliatory approach to Wall Street, both positions she later backed away from in an effort to capture the popular...

    The best secular argument in the world against evolution is the Progressive Movement. While it is a movement, the only direction it is going perfectly follows Newton's Second Law, moving America and the world from a relative state of order, to complete disorder. One must only look to the policies and practices of those champions of Progressivism to see how the tenets of this movement tear down not only the very basis of the family, but the structure and guidelines for living as given to us by God in Scripture. Touting it as an "enlightened" way of seeing problems, followers...

    Shortened title. Full title: Faith Leaders Call To ‘Repentance’ Progressive Catholics and Protestants Aiding George Soros’ ‘Anti-Christian’ Agenda An open letter signed by more than 75 of America’s evangelical and Catholic leaders calls upon politically progressive groups that claim to be members of a traditional “faith” to refuse financial assistance from leftwing billionaire political activist George Soros and his political allies. The group of leaders – which calls itself the American Association of Evangelicals – writes in its letter: After years of earnest but less public attempts, it is now with heavy hearts, and a hope for justice and restoration,...

But it has also been an incredible year of struggle, where the most militant people have risen up to say no more to exploitation, violence and repression, all facilitated by capitalism. The conference will come only days after the presidential elections. Working and oppressed people will, without a doubt, be disappointed by the results. But where will...

    The principal distinction between the right and the left is that the former is rich and the latter is poor. The principal distinction is that the right is filled with people who work in real jobs that produce valuable goods and services while the left is infested with people who do not work or do useless work, like lawyers, professors, and community organizers. Consider the occupations of the last few nominees of the two parties. The Republicans nominated men who had been war heroes (Dole and McCain and George H. Bush) or businessmen (George W.

    This sudden soar in middle-class incomes is actually 1.6 percent less than in 2007, the last year before the economy collapsed. The richest 5 percent of the country continue to flourish, with a 21.8 percent jump in income. The top 5 percent reported over $350,000 in earnings — up 4.9 percent from 1999 and nearly 40 percent more than 1989. Meanwhile, the poorest Americans — 14.8 percent of the total population, or 46.7 million — are even poorer than they were in 1989. The highest household incomes were reported in Maryland and Washington, DC — at an average of $75,000...

    Sexual progressives claim to be ushering in a “brave new world” of freedom. But their “new” morality is as old as the hills. How often have you heard sexual progressives claim that those of us who hold to traditional sexual morality and marriage are “on the wrong side of history?” But as one new book points out, it’s the proponents of the sexual revolution who are embracing a sexual morality that history left behind millennia ago—in the dusty ruins of the Roman Forum. Yes, today Western civilization is undergoing a dramatic cultural shift. In just a few short years our...

    Leftism has been on life support for fifty years. The Republican landslide in the 1966 midterm election was recognized by everyone at the time as a massive rejection of the agenda and the politics of the left. The reasons were clear. The War on Poverty produced race riots and idiocies like "Welfare Strikes." Having achieved civil rights, militant blacks were now demanding "Black Power." Affirmative action was so clearly discrimination that there were few serious minds who could coherently defend this vile incarnation of state-mandated bigotry. The left's approach to foreign threats was precisely as it is today: put in...

    In Medieval times, Kings and Queens interested in maintaining control over small, outlying geographical areas arranged a complex system of fiefdoms, vesting feudal lords with their imprimatur to tell the local serfs and vassals what to do, and granting them the “power” to extract taxes – a portion of which would be given to the royals. Despite Constitutional strictures created to insure the contrary, the United States federal government has followed pretty much the same template, albeit on a bureaucratic, rather than monarchical, level. Case in point, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), which is showing once more that it is...

    It’s easy to be an American liberal. All that is required are hypocrisy and ignorance. Ignorance is an absolute must, but especially ignorance of three things: economics, human nature and all of recorded history. One has to be truly economically illiterate to believe that high taxes encourages productivity, that union-imposed labor regulations don't dis-incentivize hiring, that energy regulations don't raise prices on the poor and working class. Likewise, to be a liberal you must pretend that men and women are exactly alike in every respect and that communism produces the most happiness for the most people. Of course you can...

He did nothing that their words have not implicitly demanded time and time again.

    You’ve probably heard about the cancellation of a showing of the film American Sniper at the University of Michigan. The film was cancelled in response to a student petition protesting that the film was racist and anti-Muslim. The initiator of the petition told the Detroit Free Press that she felt “uncomfortable” watching it. The university responded by replacing American Sniper with Paddington—presumably on the premise that no one feels uncomfortable when watching a movie about a teddy bear. After the school’s football coach, Jim Harbaugh, tweeted his support for American Sniper, the university relented and decided to show both films,...

For convenience, let's call their goal European Socialism. However, the United States is hostile to Socialism and Communism for another hundred years. Beatrice Webb, founder of the Fabian Society in London, decrees that the word "Socialism" shouldn't be used in America. The recommended euphemism is "Progressivism" and, later on, Liberalism. Socialism, as that term is generally understood, is what Dewey plans for us, but he can't say it. He and his gang must dissemble...

    PHILADELPHIA — When President Obama takes the stage here this week to begin his monthslong political farewell, it will mark a bittersweet moment for Democrats. Mr. Obama is not going to be missed only because he is beloved by the faithful. The president has also fulfilled two longstanding if often elusive goals of his party: He has largely transcended the traditional moderate-versus-liberal split, papering over internal divisions. And he passed a sweeping health care law. But without the unifying presence of Mr. Obama in the White House, or the organizing aim of expanding health care, it is unclear who will...

    The Progressives have systematically used education, media and the courts to indoctrinate, cajole and hijack the people into accepting a truncated vision of the Constitution How can we possibly know the motive of the perpetrator of the Orlando Massacre? It is a mystery to the President, the Attorney General, his whole administration, and their cheerleaders in the Corporations Once Known as the Mainstream Media. Forget that the killer called 911 and pledged allegiance to ISIS. This has been redacted from the government transcripts so it has been effectively dropped down the Memory Hole. Forget that according to survivors he was...

    In a waist-high trench alongside Spain’s national Highway 1, a dozen volunteers wearing rubber gloves brush tan clay from crumbling human bones. Their knees rest on foam cushions, and a white tent shades them from the summer sun. It’s July 2011—a full 75 summers after Spain erupted in the Civil War that put the bones of 59 civilians in the ground here. A few steps away from the trench, volunteers hold microphones up to the murmuring mouths of elders from the town of Gumiel de Izán, in the north-central region of Castilla y León. The elders, who harbor memories of...

    The socialism practiced today in many places has attacked successful people, taxed them unfairly, and redistributed their wealth to illegals A 1989 video exposed the socialist dictator Nicolae Ceausescu visiting a Bucharest grocery store and a bread store. Greeted outside the door with flowers which he unceremoniously dumped into the arms of his minions, Ceausescu waved at the “adoring crowds.” He touched a few loaves of bread as if he really cared about what his people ate. The shelves were bursting with food, bread, pastries, salamis, cheeses, meat, sugar, cooking oil, and other items that the poor citizens fought over...

    Hollywood agent Ari Emanuel has offered to take charge of a film celebrating Donald Trump's presidential campaign that would air next month at the Republican National Convention, Trump said in a new interview. "He's a very good friend of mine," Trump said about Emanuel in a story posted online Wednesday by The Hollywood Reporter. "He calls me a lot. I call him a lot and we talk. He's very political. Even though he's not political, he's political. He gets it." . . .

    Progressives and others on the radical Left are not very intelligent people. This is something we should be very thankful for, because were they actually competent, they would have completely overwhelmed the spineless, feckless Republican Party and established total control decades ago. As it stands, because progressives in the United States have so little foresight and self-control, they end up damaging their own cause through their own foolish behavior and inability to moderate themselves for the sake of more broadly appealing to the masses. This was shown most recently in Albuquerque, New Mexico, where a crowd of left-wing hooligans –...
  • ‘Hating Jesus’: Liberals Declare Spiritual Warfare

    “Remember what I told you: ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also. If they obeyed my teaching, they will obey yours also.”– John 15:20The answer had to be yes. The Holy Spirit made it crystal clear. When Tristan Emmanuel, managing publisher and CFO of BarbWire Books, called me and said it was time for me to put pen to paper and write a book on the anti-Christian left’s demonic war on religious liberty (and all things godly and good), I immediately agreed.And so with the tireless help of my project partner...

    Progressives and the U.N. are obsessed with water, among many other things, as a way to control what people do “The water you drink today has likely been around in one form or another since dinosaurs roamed the Earth, hundreds of millions of years ago.”– National Geographic “Water which is too pure has no fish.” - Anonymous Water is life and it is recyclable, covering 70 percent of our planet; 2.5 percent is fresh water and “only 1 percent is easily accessible, the rest is trapped in glaciers and snowfields.” National Geographic noted that freshwater is in crisis because levels...
  • Our Noble Declaration of Independence

    04/24/2016 1:36:19 AM PDT · by Jacquerie · 13 replies
    Among the reasons I enjoy Independence Day is that it makes Leftists squirm. They despise the American Revolution. If they could, their scotus judges would gut the Declaration as thoroughly as they have the Constitution. To them, our Noble Declaration, this expression of God-given reason is subversive of social justice; they are right. Since the Declaration is indeed hostile to their moral relativism, the Left has long attempted to minimize our founding to a fuzzy faith in the people. The “deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed,” and “all men are created equal,” translates in their Marxist...

    Why all of a sudden has the Transgender issue in the bathroom become the latest craze of the lib-left? Why is it that there are few, if any, Transgender Bathrooms in the White House, the House of Commons, at Brussels EU headquarters, the UN or in the hallowed halls of any other nation’s ivory towers? Many of the occupants of these edifices, who spent taxpayers’ billions in renovation projects, didn’t see the march of the transgenders coming? It’s because like taxes, bylaws, decrees, ordinances and rules sent down the pike from authorities the world over, the forced use of transgender...

    Some liberal celebrities are threatening to leave the country if Donald Trump becomes president. Samuel L. Jackson proposes moving to South Africa, though if Jackson is worried about xenophobia, South Africa is not a great place to avoid it. Miley Cyrus vows, “I am moving if this is my president! I don’t say things I don’t mean,” and Jon Stewart topped them all by saying he would leave the planet if Trump is elected, but Stewart is having a hard time getting attention these days, so let’s discount that as hyperbole, although he’s probably rich enough to build his own...

    Progressive Brownshirts Leftist protesters are making violence and intimidation a regular feature of the American public discourse. March 15, 2016 Robert Spencer    Ferguson. Baltimore. Chicago. Everywhere Leftist protesters occupy the streets, those whose opinions are deemed insufficiently progressive are abused, mocked, ridiculed, brutalized and physically menaced. This lawlessness is rapidly becoming the norm; the Obama administration, as well as leading media and cultural figures, need to decry that normalization and act strongly against these thugs now – before the American public square is transformed beyond recognition, and ceases to be an arena for free discourse. Although this violence...
