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 […]

 

Secession? No, try federalism

Posted by: Phineas on November 20, 2012 at 2:33 pm » 4 Comments

**Posted by Phineas In the wake of the presidential election earlier this month, a lot of people expressed their disappointment with the results by submitting petitions for secession at the White House web site. Petitions were received from all 50 states, and there were several counter-petitions from progressives urging the government to let them go. […]

 

Cult of Personality Watch: “The Gospel According to the Apostle Barack”

Posted by: Phineas on November 14, 2012 at 1:16 pm » 11 Comments

**Posted by Phineas I truly thought this was satire when I read the headline, something Iowahawk would come up with. But, no. It’s real, and the author is serious: The book’s premise is God spoke to Professor [Barbara A. Thompson, Florida A&M], telling her that Apostle Barack Obama’s 155 speeches made between February 10, 2007 […]

 

Election Day: “Forth, and fear no darkness!”

Posted by: Phineas on November 6, 2012 at 11:00 am » 1 Comment

**Posted by Phineas Today is it, folks. The day of decision. After four years of being governed by the most left-wing administration in US History, as well as the most feckless since James Buchanan; after four years of suffering under incompetent boobs (save for their outstanding competence at corruption and cronyism) who treat the Constitution […]

 

Obama: Upcoming election has “nothing to do” with #Benghazi murders

Posted by: ST on October 27, 2012 at 10:48 am » 12 Comments

That’s what you think, buddy (hat tip): President Obama again on Friday defended his administration’s handling of the attack that killed four Americans in Libya, and said he’s not holding back information ahead of Election Day. “The election has nothing to do with four brave Americans getting killed and us wanting to find out exactly […]

 

One-percenter #BigBird living large off of untaxed earnings and “offshore nest eggs”

Posted by: ST on October 26, 2012 at 11:11 am » 1 Comment

Oh, the suffering: Far from being a pauper, Sesame Workshop, the company that produces the beloved children’s television program that has become an unlikely point of partisan bickering in the presidential campaign, has put away more than $100 million in investments, including more than $20 million in hedge funds and $9.7 million in a private […]
