This has allowed Mexico, Guatamala, Honduras, and El Salvador to purge their countries of violent criminals, and people with contagious diseases, allowing them unlimited access to the United States.

    It seems now that the Third Rome, with its roots in Ancient Greece and Rome, is remerging as a force for good in the world. As the West begins to sink into the despotism once associated with the East, a power with a geographic position predominantly in the east takes on the mantle of civilizational leader. Could it be that Russia is now filling the moral vacuum that has been left in the wake of the West’s retreat from the principles of human rights and human liberty?
  • Liberal Hypocrisy - Did You Know That Tax-Payer Funded Abortion Helped To Reduce Crime in New York?

    07/26/2014 8:48:00 AM PDT · by pinochet · 13 replies
    Hypocritical liberals bashed Republican New York Mayors, Rudy Guliani and Michael Bloomberg, for racially profiling high-crime minority men. What nobody talks about, is that liberals also engage in profiling high crime minority groups in an even more taboo way. If legal abortion exists without tax-payer support, ethnic groups with higher incomes (whites and Asians) get easier access to abortion. The purpose of tax-payer funded abortion is to make sure that lower income minorities, particularly those who live in high crime areas, get easier access to abortion. When high crime minority men do not bring children to this world, that lowers...

Now, according to a July 25 review in the journal Science, the Earth seems to be at the cusp of a sixth mass extinction. Only this time, an asteroid is not to blame. We are. "Human impacts on animal biodiversity are an under-recognized form of global environmental change," the team of ecologists and biologists warn in Science.
