  • The One World Religion Cometh: Pope Francis Warmly Welcomes Top Islamic Cleric To The Vatican

    End of the American Dream ^ | 5/23/2016 | Michael Snyder
    When Pope Francis met with Sheikh Ahmed al-Tayeb on Monday, he told him that “our meeting is the message“. So precisely what kind of “message” was Pope Francis attempting to convey? Sheikh Ahmed al-Tayeb is the Grand Imam of Cairo’s Al-Azhar Mosque, and some have described him as “the highest figure in Sunni Islam“. The Daily Mail said that the meeting between these two men was a “historic bid to reopen dialogue between the two churches”, and as you will see below this is yet another in a long series of attempts by Pope Francis to build bridges between Catholicism...

    Islam is not just a religion, or a form of government. It is a complete system, encompassing religious, legal, political, economic and military components, with each being utilized as required. “Muslims” are those that follow the Islamic doctrine. Islamic domination occurs when there are sufficient Muslims in a country to agitate for their so-called “religious rights.” When politically correct and culturally diverse societies, such as ours, agree to seemingly reasonable Muslim demands for their religious liberties, they are subsequently enforced on the remainder of the population through the use of their political and military components. Dr. Peter Hammond, in his...

I am sure every Donald Trump supporter in this nation lies awake at night wondering, “What does Jeb Bush think of me? He doesn’t think I’m an idiot, does he? Because I don’t think I could handle that!” Rest easy, sweet pups. I have wonderful news for you. No, Jeb does not think you’re a bunch of idiots. In his classic low-energy way, Jeb! has given you all absolution for any hint of idiocy:

    Cautionary tale: When socialism is instituted democratically, it’s a good indication that your days of making decisions democratically may be numbered With Venezuela spinning out of control, it’s said that U.S. officials fear a military coup. We ought to ask “Why?” Democracy on the brain can be a dangerous condition. George W. Bush pursued his unwise “nation-building” policies under the assumption that, as he put it, “democracies don’t go to war with each other.” (Note: technically we’re speaking of “republics,” not democracies.) So WWI was the “war to end all wars,” and now there’s the political system to end all...

Socialism has been about as complete a disaster there as it’s possible for a thing to be.

    Writing for the National Review in 2014, Kevin Williamson had the gall to claim that the transgender star Laverne Cox was “not a woman.” Not only so, but Williamson continued to refer to Cox as “he” throughout his article.Then, referring to Katie Couric’s interview with Cox in which she infamously “asked him about whether he had undergone surgical alteration,” Williamson wrote, “and God help her if she had misdeployed a pronoun, which is now considered practically a hate crime.” Again, that was in 2014. Today, in some states, it is a crime to “misdeploy” a pronoun, which would mean referring to Laverne...

    President Barack Obama, the titular head of the LGBT movement, has added to the firestorm of confusion, misunderstanding, and fury surrounding the transgender bathroom debate by threatening schools with loss of federal funding unless they allow students to join the sex-segregated restroom, locker room, and sports teams of their chosen gender, without regard to biological reality. I know firsthand what it’s like to be a transgender person—and how misguided it is to think one can change gender through hormones and surgery. His action comes after weeks of protests against the state of North Carolina for its so-called anti-LGBT bathroom bill....

    The current assault on women’s right to privacy in public restrooms implies that only those born with Gender Identity Disorder have any personal rights. GIDites believe that people with male anatomies who are dressed as women should be able to use restrooms designated for people with female anatomies. Women are justifiably concerned that sexual predators can take advantage of this situation and dress as women to gain access to women’s restrooms. Depriving women of their right to sexual privacy to accommodate men with a mental abnormality makes women second class citizens

In 2012, the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) vs Sebelius (ObamaCare) was considered by many to be among the most significant cases heard by the Supreme Court in decades.

A new Gallup poll released Thursday shows while fewer Americans are getting married – or are waiting much longer to get married – than in past decades, they feel little to no compulsion against having kids in the meantime. But rather than simply stating the numbers -- which are depressing enough -- Gallup felt compelled to throw in its two cents on how businesses – and society as a whole – should respond to the shift in...

According to Gallup, “Americans’ image of socialism is no better now than it was six years ago.” Indeed, it is slightly worse. Back in 2010, a greater percentage (36%) of Americans had a positive view of socialism than do today (35%), and in 2012, 39 percent of Americans had a positive view of socialism, denoting a four percent drop between then and now. Meanwhile, capitalism saw only a marginal drop over the...

    The United Kingdom has a large Muslim population – 5.4 percent, according to the Office of National Statistics, or about 3 million people. Although polygamy is permitted under sharia law, most Muslim men do not have two, three or four wives. In fact, according to “The Salafi Feminist”, a Canadian blogger, average Muslims view second wives “as little more than secret mistresses, home-wreckers, and simply selfish”. However, the growing influence of Islam in the UK combined with a redefinition to allow homosexuals to marry makes a push for legal polygamy more likely. In a recent article in The Conversation, a...

Not only is the majority ambivalent, but a new Washington Post poll has been released and, according to the data, Social Justice Warriors have failed to convince Native Americans that they should care either.

As Trump gets stronger (and polls better) the odds that #NeverTrumpers could achieve their goals have all but collapsed. Now, one of #NeverTrump’s top dogs is wandering away from the effort. Mitt Romney - a man who knows a thing or two about suspending campaigns - has decided it’s time...

    Tell Washington regulators to stay in their own backyard. But we have to make sure we send the same message from our yards and post ‘no trespassing’ signs in big, bold letters When the all-encompassing Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing (AFFH) regulation was first proposed in 2013, we addressed this inherent enslavement of every American to federal authority. Does the term “enslavement” hit a raw nerve… good. The article, 21st century Slavery – HUD vs MLK, took the issue of a federal agency dispensing zoning directives for neighborhoods, your neighborhood, to the crux of the problem – the creation of a...

    Why Sanders is lying when he says he doesn’t approve of violence perpetrated on his behalf. The reason Bernie Sanders pointedly refuses to condemn his supporters for throwing chairs and making death threats against Democrat officials at and after the party’s Nevada convention is because he doesn’t actually object to their violent behavior. Sanders blew off pressure from Democrat leaders to disavow ugly tactics by his supporters at the event Saturday evening, calling the complaints “nonsense” and arguing that his supporters were not treated with “fairness and respect.” The pro-violence radicalism among Sanders supporters comes straight from the top

    Disease is the absence of health. Although many diseases still have the potential to end our life we have found ways to combat them and avoid the deadly pandemics of the past. History tells us between 75 and 200 million people died in Europe during the middle years of the 14th century. It took just six years to sweep across the continent and reduce the population by at least 1/3. Those who survived were emotionally and financially destroyed. Because of modern medicine and a clearer understanding of the how and why of epidemics we are at much less risk of...
  • Clinton and Trump: Past Performance is, Guarantee of Future Results!

    It means that one candidate can get things done to improve the lives of others, and of the nation too - proven by his past performance In the real estate profession “You’re Only as Good as Your Next Deal”. In the securities business it is said, that “Past Performance is no Guarantee of Future Results.” In fact, the best fund managers pick companies, among other factors, based on the past performance of managing executives who made “good deals.” Both mantras prove that We, Americans, had to fight for our real estate the same as Israelis fight for theirs, the same...

    An Avowed Socialist is a Viable Candidate for President of the United States Let that headline sink in for a moment. I know what you’re thinking: Senator Sanders doesn’t have a chance. Before you get too much solace from that denial ridden and self-comforting thought, you’re missing the point. Put aside your desire to soothe your jagged nerves and consider that for the FIRST TIME in American history, an avowed socialist is a VIABLE candidate for President of the United States. How did we get here? Well, to begin with, Baby Boomers are no longer the largest demographic group in...

    On the way to Wisconsin from Dallas, I had a minor automotive mishap.  I was on Highway 151, just across the Mississippi, and the Wisconsin border, when the battery light came on.  I had considered changing out the battery in Arizona when I left, but thought it could take one more trip.  I was wrong.  Things started going crazy with the sensors and instruments a few miles later, but I managed to take the first exit and ended up in a Wal-Mart parking lot in Dodgeville, trying to diagnose the problem.  The parking lot seemed like a decent place...

    The Venezuelan economy is buckling1 under the weight of its severe socialist policies, and even as its president admits to a nationwide economic emergency2, the government continues to affirm the drivers behind the collapse, blaming low oil prices and global capitalism instead. This was supposed to be the dawn of “21st-century socialism,” as the late President Hugo Chavez proclaimed3 over 10 years ago, complete with the right tweaks and upgrades to its materialistic, mechanistic approach to the human person. “We have assumed the commitment to direct the Bolivarian Revolution towards socialism,” he said, “and to contribute to the socialist path, with a...

    The sovereignty of America is quietly being eroded as details have emerged surrounding the Obama administrations proposed budget for 2017 in regards to the resettlement of refugees and illegal aliens in our cities and towns. The requested budget by the President for fiscal year 2017, which begins October 1, 2016, is $2,184,860,000. According to the White House over $2 billion in funds is needed in order to “support a total of 213,000 ‘humanitarian arrivals’in FY 2017, including 100,000 refugees, consistent with the administrations commitment to admit at least this number of refugees in 2017.”

    Former DNC chairman Ed Rendell predicts Donald Trump will lose because he says there are more ugly women than attractive ones in America and the ugly ones will vote against Donald Trump. Will he have some appeal to working-class Dems in Levittown or Bristol? Sure,” said Ed Rendell, the former Pennsylvania governor and Philadelphia mayor, who won landslides in the suburbs. “For every one he’ll lose 1½ , two Republican women. Trump’s comments like ‘You can’t be a 10 if you’re flat-chested,’ that’ll come back to haunt him. There are probably more ugly women in America than attractive women"Why do...

    Guillermo Espinoza's efforts to retrieve $19,894 seized by Arkansas State Police were brought to an abrupt halt by Judge Chris Williams. State prosecutors asked that the money be returned to Espinoza since no criminal charges were being pursued against him. Williams rejected this request on the grounds that Espinoza had missed the 10-day deadline for filing the papers to initiate restitution. As Williams sees it, "the rules on civil forfeiture are clearly spelled out in statute. Whether or not Mr. Espinoza was or wasn't engaged in any illegal activity is irrelevant. Arkansas law gives the government the right to seize...
