(Video) Is America Becoming Europe?

Posted by: Phineas on March 27, 2013 at 1:43 pm » 2 Comments

**Posted by Phineas A philosophical question for you from Encounter Books and narrated by, I think, Bill Whittle: My short answer is “No, and I’d  rather not live in Europe, thanks.” (Even though I live in one of the states closest to “might as well just join the EU and get it over with.”;) If […]

 

QOTD: On polls and popularity contests regarding the issues we face

Posted by: ST on March 25, 2013 at 12:50 pm » 6 Comments

Read this over the weekend from Pastor Rick Warren on Twitter, and thought it was worth sharing here: “Popularity has no bearing on what’s true and what’s false. The crowd, and opinion polls, are often wrong.” I bring this up because of all the bandwagon-jumping I’m seeing on the issue of gay marriage – especially […]

 

Babs Walters: Elisabeth Hasselbeck is not leaving “The View”

Posted by: ST on March 11, 2013 at 11:59 am » 1 Comment

The veteran TV personality Walters today put the brakes on the reports that Hasselbeck was being kicked off the show at all – much less due to her political views, which are at odds with the rest of the cast: Barbara Walters refuted reports that Elisabeth Hasselbeck is leaving “The View.” Early on during Monday’s […]

 

Irony alert: Eyes finally open, liberals hope for military coup in Egypt

Posted by: Phineas on January 30, 2013 at 1:01 pm » 1 Comment

**Posted by Phineas From Andy McCarthy’s post at NRO’s “The Corner” blog on commentators rising calls for the Egyptian military to intervene as that country starts to fall apart: Here’s the really interesting part: The [Egyptian] Left does not have the numbers needed to defeat the Islamists at the ballot box. That is why the […]

 

Aide to Egyptian President Morsi: The Holocaust was faked

Posted by: Phineas on January 29, 2013 at 2:01 pm » 5 Comments

**Posted by Phineas Consider this to be another example in support of this post: Holocaust denial is antisemitism, it is Jew-hatred, and it is endemic at the highest levels of the Egyptian government: To Celebrate Holocaust Remembrance Day two days ago,   Fathi Shihab-Eddim, a senior figure close to President Morsi who is now responsible for […]

 

Arab Spring: Egypt imprisons family for conversion to Christianity

Posted by: Phineas on January 15, 2013 at 1:01 pm » 1 Comment

**Posted by Phineas That new government we helped to power is sure turning out fine, isn’t it? I mean, under Islamic Law, they could have been sentenced to death. Instead, for merely exercising the right of conscience inherent in all persons, a mother and her sons get “only” fifteen years in prison: The criminal court […]

 

Demand a Plan! (To end celebrity hypocrisy)

Posted by: Phineas on December 31, 2012 at 4:24 pm » 7 Comments

**Posted by Phineas Actually, I don’t know if they’re hypocritical so much as clueless, but the result is the same: yet another deep, meaningful campaign in which a bunch of vapid airheads go in front of a camera and repeat slogans over and over, hoping to brainwash you into submission, like a bunch of zombies. This […]

 

Egyptian Muslim cleric threatens Copts with genocide

Posted by: Phineas on December 28, 2012 at 7:33 pm » 6 Comments

**Posted by Phineas It’s that Religion of Peace-thing, you know: Islamic leaders continue to portray the popular protests against President Morsi and his recently passed Sharia-heavy constitution as products of Egypt’s Christians. Recently, Muslim Brotherhood leader Safwat Hegazy said in an open rally, as captured on video: “A message to the church of Egypt, from an […]

 

The hypocrisy of elitist twerps, such as Bob Costas

Posted by: Phineas on December 4, 2012 at 1:01 pm » 3 Comments

**Posted by Phineas Armed protection for me, but not for thee: Bob Costas’ gun control rant was bad but made worse by one key point — he lives much of his life with the benefit of armed security. (i.e., men with guns). If you’ve ever been to an NFL game this point is academic. The […]

 

President Obama needs to wake the hell up regarding the Muslim Brotherhood

Posted by: ST on November 29, 2012 at 4:05 pm » 11 Comments

No, I don’t expect any “waking up” to happen, as the left’s naive and dangerous tendency to treat established radical public figures and regimes - especially Islamists masquerading as “moderates” - as allies of America is well-documented.  But all the same, National Review editor Rich Lowry sounds alarms bells today in a blistering rebuke of the Obama administration’s fawning admiration of the Muslim Brotherhood, in particular, its President - Mohamed Morsi. Lowry writes: The […]
