  • Before 1930, All Christian Denominations Opposed Contraception

    02/17/2017 8:27:21 AM PST · by pinochet · 56 replies
    Before 1930, every Christian denomination opposed contraception. As a result, Whites were 36 percent of the world's population in 1900. The combined population of India and China today, is 36 percent of the world's population. The percentage of Whites in the world's population in 1900, was similar to the combined percentage of India and China to the world's population today. Western civilization in 1900, was not just dominant because of the West's science and technology. The West had demographic power, that gave Whites a majority in 3 continents (Europe, North America and Australia). Whites were a large minority in the...

    Anyone else watch the Coal reg roll back signing at the White House? It was even more amazing than the press conference he gave earlier today. He showed a genuine common and human touch, the coal miners were moved, and said so, and Trump spread credit around for all. At the end, he turns to the coal Miners and says: "hey, you guys want to see the Oval Office?" they didn't know what to say and he says "Sure you do, come on along", and he takes the all in. A really genuine moment. Truly, today convinced me trump is...

    I would like to have a section set up on the White House website where the public can ask questions directly to President Trump. So many times, I’ve wanted to ask questions that the media will not ask. I have bombarded the media to ask them, but usually get ignored. He or his staff could pick out the ones he wants to answer, once a week or so. We don’t want to see softball questions, but respectful questions and not the silly questions the media keeps asking. Twitter does not allow enough chars for a good question and answer session....
  • Trump’s pick for ambassador to Israel unqualified, say 5 former envoys

    Five former US ambassadors to Israel claimed Wednesday that President Donald Trump’s choice for the position is unqualified, and they are urging senators to carefully consider the nomination. In a letter sent to members of the Foreign Relations Committee, the former diplomats said David Friedman has staked out “extreme, radical positions” and has derided the two-state solution as an “illusory” fix for a non-existent problem. “We believe the committee should satisfy itself that Mr. Friedman has the balance and the temperament required to represent the United States as ambassador to Israel,” they wrote. The committee is scheduled to meet Thursday...

    This is sort of an update, requested by some, on my take on the developments of the last week or so. First, I have not been in contact with anyone at Team Trump. I think they have plenty to deal with. I am told my streams of contact still work, so they are just busy. Second, the rollout of the executive orders was not, contrary to some douchenozzle RINOs and know-it-all, inside-the-beltway pundits, "clumsy" or "poorly conceived." The fact is that ANY initiative as big as this is likely to be leaked the longer it germinated, and the more it...

Either way, he has opened the floodgates of wrath. Bad advice to oust Flynn...he should have given all his critics the middle finger and told the press that...

Her ethics violation is deminimus and she won’t offend again, obviously. Your overreaction is far more offensive than her faux pas. You are aware that virtually all of the Democrat party is indulging itself in an irrational hatred of all things Trump. Your reaction to Kellyanne’s mistake serves to validate their hatred and encourage it. SO DON’T.

    02/08/2017 3:15:32 PM PST · by TigerClaws · 57 replies
    Trump knew that the temporary ban on travel from the seven majority-Muslim nations would be challenged legally. He knew that the Democrats would pick the 9th Circuit (most liberal one) to challenge the travel ban. Some have suggested Trump has no plan in place to defend the law and the B-team argued it before the liberal 9th Circuit. But is this all part of Trump's master plan? Is he 3D chess-ing it? Consider the following: 1. Trump's pick to replace Scalia was approved by 99-0 in the Senate (with votes from Hillary and Obama) and is a lock. 2. Kennedy...

    The Pew Research Institute predicts that there will be more Muslims than Christians in the world in the year 2070. The German philosopher of history, Oswald Spengler, proposed a cyclical view of human civilization, where civilizations rise and fall according to levels of religious observance. For the first 280 years of Christian history, Christianity was illegal in the Roman Empire. The Roman pagans were as ruthless in their persecution of Christians, as the Muslims are today. But Christians were able to overcome the mighty Roman Empire and take it over. Muslim refugees are leaving their Muslim countries, because there...

Any disparity to Democrats = racism. So if more African-Americans are stopped and frisked or arrested and convicted of crimes, that's due to institutional racism of the police force. The DOJ sues and rather than spend millions battling the municipality hands over control of the police to the DOJ/liberal judges. What are some of the typical changes? 1.
