    Within the context of keeping the Syrian jihad alive, it seems there is no end to the attempts of some Islamic clerics to legitimize otherwise forbidden behavior in order to gratify the sexual urges of the jihadis and keep them fighting Syrian president Bashar Assad.

    Evolution is fricking amazing. Nowhere is this more evident than in parasites. They make use of and take over their hosts in remarkable ways—truly living up to “survival of the fittest.” For example, regard the beautiful emerald jewel wasp. The wasp paralyzes and zombifies cockroaches to lay an egg on the abdomen of the unsuspecting insects. When the egg hatches, the wasp larva emerges and eventually eats its way into the belly of the roach. The larva then pupates inside the cockroach, building a cocoon and eventually emerging as a grown wasp. Last year we described the unbelievable way the...

    Speaking to a group of awestruck Chinese citizens, Michelle Obama recounted her years of oppression as a victim of racism and how she survived the American extermination camps. "There were laws in America that discriminated against people like me because of the color of our skin," said Michelle. A sharp inward gasp was heard as the interpreter finished her comment in Mandarin. Still haunted by laws that were no longer in effect when she was born, Michelle outlined her plight as she endured racism in Princeton University, and narrowly escaped death at Harvard Law School. Tears were seen streaming down...

    . In honor of St. Patrick's Day, lets remember captives and slaves whose sacrifice made ours lives so much better. Many don't know that Patrick was NOT Irish. He was born in Scotland and captured by the Irish when he was a teenager. Then he spread Christianity to the Irish. In the Bible, Joseph's brother's sold him into slavery. When he was later able to save his family, he told them, "What you meant for evil, God meant for Good." Thousands of years later, Squanto was captived by Europeans and taken away.

    It is difficult to estimate the number of cases involving human trafficking in Virginia since many cases probably go unreported and there are a plethora of charges that fall under human trafficking, such as prostitution, extortion, receiving money for procuring a person, cruelty and injuries to children and abduction. The Polaris Project tracks the number of phone calls the National Human Trafficking Resource Center’s hotline receives, but it is important to note that this is not a completely accurate way of tracking human trafficking because any citizen can call the hotline for information, and not all victims call the hotline....

    Ray Jasper, a Death Row inmate in Texas scheduled for execution in two weeks, has written a lengthy letter from prison where he blasts the justice system and the specter of racial disparity. Jasper, who was a young rap artist at the time, was accused of the brutal robbing and killing of a recording studio owner in 1998. Convicted in 2000 and later sentenced to death, Jasper has used a platform provided to him in where he lashes out at the prison system, likening it to slavery.

    During his 2004 Senate run and again during the 2008 presidential campaign, Barack Obama stood firm in his opposition to reparations for the descendants of enslaved Africans here in the United States. “I have said in the past – and I’ll repeat again – that the best reparations we can provide are good schools in the inner city and jobs for people who are unemployed,” he said in 2008 right before his historic election. The radical solutions required to address the needs and long-festering wounds of the African American community of course had to be purged from public discourse. Yet...

Each year we get a collective pat on the head by race hustlers and guilty liberals who act as if our skin color is akin to suffering from some kind of affliction that needs special compensation. Maybe we could organize a telethon to help find a cure? So even with a so-called post-racial president, there are still far too many of us...

    Could this be the decade that slavery reparations become a reality? If not, it won't be for a lack of trying. This is the obvious next step for poor countries getting poorer because of bad economics, bad politics, and bad, bad leaders. Former colonial powers are to be milked for all the cash that can be gotten by laying a guilt trip on the good socialists who run these countries now. Any successes enjoyed by the former colonies will no doubt encourage African Americans to try the same ploy here. Jamaica is leading the way in pushing for reparations from...

    Way back in early February, we heard that Ted Cruz had decided to start playing nice with his fellow Republicans. What a difference 10 days make. After Speaker John Boehner moved Tuesday to pass a "clean" debt-ceiling increase, relying on Democratic votes in the House, it looked like the increase could have an easy path through the Democratic-controlled Senate. Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew said the nation would hit the debt limit at the end of the month, and with Congress on recess until February 25, Wednesday's vote was almost do or die. But the freshman senator from Texas had other...

Theft of income, of labor, of assets and by extension, of personal freedom? Does it not simply mean that this party, by its own rhetoric, is admitting to be a party of slave owners? Are they not admitting that the working class is nothing but slaves; suppliers of the means with which they buy votes? And what about the recipients of their “generosity”? If they are...

As GreekReporter reports, the measure includes unpaid work for the young and unemployed up to 24 years old, so that companies would have a strong motive to hire young employees.

Generations of school children have been indoctrinated with the story that “Honest Abe” Lincoln is a national hero who saved the Union and fought a noble war to end slavery, and that the “evil” Southern states seceded from the Union to protect slavery. This is the Yankee myth of history, written and promulgated by Northerners, and it is a complete falsity. It was produced and entrenched in the culture in large part to gloss over the terrible war crimes...

So of course it wasn’t hard to determine that Anderson Cooper was connected, in a familial way, to slavery.  His bloodline is tied to the Vanderbilts, one of the richest families in American history. Cooper’s great-great-grandfather, Cornelius Vanderbilt – who was also Cooper’s cousin through inbreeding – was a tycoon who built his wealth from shipping and railroads.

For the State to allow a person to work without becoming a member of a union opens the worker to abuse and mistreatment and is, therefore, an endorsement of slavery.” “Slaves weren't allowed to form unions,” Piddler pointed out. “That was a crucial block to their attainment of full human rights.

As historian Allen Guelzo explained recently, the address is an example of democratic speech, words aimed at his audience that they could easily understand. The crowd gathered that day would have appreciated that the address was so short -- just 272...

In a nutshell, that means that Barack Obama, and those he designates, can seize any resource, property, or...

Eight days later, Clements was shot dead shortly after opening his front door on March 19, 2013. ......

But, as horrifying as the revelation is, Britain’s leading anti-child trafficking organization has speculated the problem may actually be more widespread than the report indicates. “Traffickers are exploiting the demand for organs and the vulnerability of children,” Bharti Patel, the chief executive of Ecpat UK, a charity that combats child trafficking, told the Daily Telegraph. “It’s unlikely that a trafficker is going to take this risk and...

    AN ECONOMIC CHART THAT COULD SPELL TROUBLE Oct. 21, 2013 by Becket Adams Fund flows are interesting in thatthey help market analysts gauge investor sentiment in specific assets or the markets as a whole. “For instance,if net fund flows for bonds funds during a given month is negative by a large amount,this would signal broad-based pessimism over the fixed-income markets,” Investopedia notes, offering a helpful explanation for the concept. That being said, something interesting happened earlier this year with foreign interest in USD-denominated assets. Simply put, foreign interest collapsed. Here’s a chart to help you visualize the drop: “It...

    The Mighty Democrat Senator "No Debate" Reid has spoken though his use of raw Park Police Power by an incompetent, spendaholic, Democrat Administration: Release the floodgates of continuous increased Federal Spending or we will lower the BARRYCADE IRON CURTAIN until you cave in. In this way Reid and Obama have defined for America what continued control of the US Senate and the Administration will be like in the future. Each section of the BARRYCADE IRON CURTAIN is a visual testament to the abject failure of the Obama-Reid Adminstration and Senate. There should be no doubt, except for the true believers...

    Myanmar is the world’s primary source of top-grade jade, but the jade mining industry in the Southeast Asian nation remains mired in a humanitarian catastrophe two years after the reform government took over control -- tens of thousands of workers are exploited and heroin is abused on an unprecedented scale, creating the world’s largest HIV-infected community. ... For less than the price of a beer, an injectionist administers the drug directly into the vein of a miner, delivering as many as 800 separate injections from the same dirty needle. Large quantities of the drug are provided by the mine owners,...

    Chapter 3. Slavery for the Sake of Social Stability [00:23:54] Now, how is slavery defended? In many ways, to say the least. But I want to give you at least some sense of the development of the pro-slavery argument, the kinds of arguments that were used, how they changed over time, who made the arguments. Now, the best way to begin to understand pro-slavery ideology, whether we're in the early period of its defense in the 1820s — actually, a quite virulent defense of slavery begins early, it isn't something that just sprung from Southern pens in the 1850s during...

    US Attorney General Eric Holder warned Michigan legislators against passing two welfare reform bills. One bill would require welfare recipients to pass a drug test in order to receive benefits. Those who failed the test would be denied benefits. The other bill would require welfare recipients who are able to perform a minimum of community service in exchange for payments. Holder characterized the bills as “unconscionable intrusions on personal liberties and grossly inhumane. Forcing someone to perform community service in exchange for welfare violates the Constitution’s ban on involuntary servitude. This nation fought a Civil War to free the Black...

    Editor's Note: This column was coauthored by Bob Morrison. In Washington, D.C., one of our most stately buildings is undergoing an extensive renovation. The Free Public Library, Northeast Branch is probably the library closest to Capitol Hill. And this red brick structure, with its stylish quoined corners, when it reopens, promises to bring even more opportunities for study and reflection to this thriving community. We would like to suggest renaming this library after Frederick Douglass. Frederick Douglass was, with Abraham Lincoln, the greatest example of what nineteenth century Americans meant when they defended “the right to rise.” Millions of Americans,...

    African-American middle school students were forced to act as slaves, pretending to be sold at auction and standing in the darkness of a would-be slave ship, all while enduring racial epithets, a human rights lawsuit filed by a student’s mother claims. Nature’s Classroom in Charlton, Massachusetts has been running this reenactment for many years. Jon Santos, the director of Nature’s Classroom, told The Washington Post that the three-hour exercise was meant to teach students empathy for what slaves were put through, along with lessons about modern day bullying. He denied that racial slurs were part of the curriculum, saying that...

    Charges have been dropped against a Saudi princess who was accused of human trafficking after a Kenyan maid said her passport was taken and she was forced to work for meagre pay. On Friday, prosecutors in the US state of California said they were unable to corroborate the allegations against Meshael Alayban, 42. Ms Alayban's lawyers said the maid's claims were a scam to remain in the US. The charges carried a penalty of up to 12 years in prison. Friday's announcement came during what was originally supposed be Ms Alayban's arraignment. Orange County District Attorney Tony Rackauckas told the...

    Middle school-aged students from Connecticut on a field trip last year were forced to re-enact slavery by pretending to be sold at auction and in fields picking cotton, according to a student's complaint. They were told they would be whipped or worse if they ran, and some were asked to dance for their masters. "I had to hold my head down and could not make contact with the white masters," the 12-year-old student, who is black, said in a statement read to the Hartford school board this week by her father, James Baker of suburban Farmington. "I heard the instructor...
