Barack Obama and Taqiyya: Is There an Islamic Explanation for the Lies?

10112012super-muslim-obama Speaking of "ISIL is not Islamic"... it kind of makes one wonder, when your President grew up and was schooled in a culture that believes lying can be honorable and righteous... is he practicing Taqiyya on us, all the time? Consider this entry from Islam Watch: “Understanding Taqiyya ― Islamic Principle of Lying for the Sake of Allah.” The word "Taqiyya" literally means: "Concealing, precaution, guarding.” It is employed in disguising one's beliefs, intentions, convictions, ideas, Read more [...]

Abortion to Save the Life of the Mother Not Medically Necessary?

baby-in-womb It is almost a platitude that most laws against abortion will have exceptions “to save the life of the mother.” I wrote last week about how Wendy Davis defends abortion because she has to justify her own abortion(s?). This was odd because her real abortion was allegedly based on her baby’s severe defects. While I don’t think this justifies killing the child before birth any more than after birth, I don’t understand how Davis can use an abortion she justifies on certain reasons in order Read more [...]

Pentagon Wanted Ground Troops for ISIS; President Refused

caesar obama President Obama has insisted that we are going to defeat the Islamic State without using ground troops. But is that a realistic plan or is it wishful thinking? In the National Review’s The Corner, Rich Lowry quotes the Washington Post: Although Obama promised a “steady, relentless effort” in a nationally televised address Wednesday night, he also said that “it will take time to eradicate a cancer like ISIL,” using a common acronym for the Islamic State. Such a mission was not Read more [...]

The United States Is Run by Idiots

green day american idiot There are many signs this country is run by idiots. The obvious question here is why did the writer stop at eleven? From the Fellowship of the Mind blog: “11 ways to know when you are living in a country run by idiots.” The original title of the essay below is “Food For Thought,” its author is said to be Junius P. Long. America: A Country Run by Idiots 1. If you can get arrested for hunting or fishing without a license, but not for being in the country illegally, you live in a Read more [...]

Record Revenues for the Federal Government as Debt Grows

Corporate_taxes The Federal government is collecting record revenues yet they still can't balance the budget. We have a massive spending problem, buttressed by a record number of Americans willing to live off money plundered from their productive neighbors (and I include "transfer payment" recipients as well as corporate pirates who guarantee income streams and government contracts through lots of campaign donations). CNS News reports: “$2.66T: Tax Revenues for FY14 Hit Record Through August; Gov’t Still Read more [...]

Freedom of Religion in the Military – Use It or Lose It

admiral How do you defend freedom—the freedom of religion or any other freedom? By exercising it—even at the risk of punishment. The Founders risked everything—everything—to bring us the precious gift of civil liberties. Too many today won't risk their job, pension, or even a promotion to stand for what's right. This Rear Admiral demonstrates true courage in publicly standing against immoral directives handed down to our military leadership. From the Political Insider: “BOOM! In Two Read more [...]

Dem Sees Christian Genocide, But Does the White House?

islamic state 2 I don't often hear of people talking about Christian genocide. While we get geared up to fight our not-a-war, I still have not seem many (any?) denunciations of the mistreatment and killing of Christians from this Administration. What seems especially strange is the White House stays silence even in the face of acknowledgement of the issue by members of their own party. As CNS News reports, Rep. Anna Eshoo (D-Calif.) said on Wednesday that the persecution and slaughter of Christians Read more [...]

Don't Be Manipulated by the Hitler Bush Smear

adolf-hitler_tyrant I don’t think the Hitler Bush comparison was intended to manipulate conservatives, but it may still do so. It should also alert us to the possibility that a Republican might be attacked in order to get Conservatives to rally around him. So let’s remember that, when a teacher starts brainwashing children to demonize George W. Bush, we need commit ourselves to clear thinking even when we are outraged. The Washington Post reports, “McKinley Middle School teacher asks students to compare Read more [...]

A War by Any Other Name ... Is Doomed

KerryBunnysalute1 John Kerry, a decorated veteran of the Vietnam Police Action, says that President Obama's promise in a nationally aired speech to "destroy" ISIS is not a war. Having listened to Obama's tough-guy speech given on the eve of the anniversary of 9-11, I'll admit that the president's plan sounds like a half-hearted attempt to appear to be "doing something" rather than a serious effort. However, there was a lot of talk about bombs dropping and military "advisers" advising in there, which does indeed Read more [...]

Democrat Senator Will Not Vote to Train Syrian Rebels

syrian rebels With President Obama and others insisting that it is possible and advisable to train Syrian rebels perhaps some will try to argue that opposition to this strategy is merely partisan conservative resistance to Barack Obama. But the above video shows a Democrat Senator who thinks it is wrong to give weapons and training to people who might use it to shoot at us. As National Reviews’s the Corner reports, Senator Joe Manchin (D., W.Va.) said he will not support a key part of President Obama’s Read more [...]

Marc Faber Says McDonald’s Decline Means the Economy Will Decline

stock market crash CNBC interviewed Marc Faber recently, and he pointed to happenings with McDonald’s. Via CNBC: On Tuesday, McDonald's reported that global same-store sales in August fell 3.7 percent in August, well short of expectations. The worst drop occurred in the Asia-Pacific region on the back of a Chinese meat safety scandal, but even U.S. sales slid 2.8 percent. For Faber, those results are a perfect example of the damage being done by central banks—and the harbinger of more bad news to come. "Nobody Read more [...]

The So-Called Syrian Moderates Work with the Extremists

obama syria Yesterday, I heard constant stories about how the Obama Administration wants to “work with” the so-called Syrian moderates—in other words, to arm and fund them. I have written about this several times. It is an idea that is proffered not only by Democrats but by Republicans. As Bob Allen recently wrote, it is a crazy and dangerous idea that can only put us in more danger from extremists with American-financed weapons. Nevertheless, others keep pretending that the weapons and money can Read more [...]
