.@SkyNews journo rifles through #MH17 luggage, network apologizes after backlash

Posted by: ST on July 21, 2014 at 10:01 am » 1 Comment

Unreal. A new low in modern journalism – via the WaPo: A Sky News reporter drew criticism over the weekend when he rummaged on camera through a bag belonging to a victim of the MH17 air crash in Ukraine, even as he said he “probably shouldn’t be doing this, I suppose.” It appeared to be […]

 

Think Progress, Salon promote stifling of dissent over climate change

Posted by: ST on July 7, 2014 at 11:33 am » 1 Comment

Not exactly a surprise that these two ultra-liberal sites are proponents of shutuppery, but worth documenting all the same, no matter whether it happens here at home – or abroad.  Headline from Think Progress: To Improve Accuracy, BBC Tells Its Reporters To Stop Giving Air Time To Climate Deniers Got that? “To improve accuracy” – […]

 

What about *your* gaffes, Hillary?

**Posted by Phineas Yes, my friends, it’s time once again for one of our favorite games, “If it had been a Republican…” Remember, how, back in the 2012 campaign, the press and the Democrat support groups (redundant, I know) hounded Republican nominee Mitt Romney over supposed misstatements and gaffes while on a foreign tour? I […]

 

Aborted babies incinerated to heat British hospitals

Posted by: Phineas on March 24, 2014 at 2:09 pm » 1 Comment

**Posted by Phineas Just horrifying: The bodies of thousands of aborted and miscarried babies were incinerated as clinical waste, with some even used to heat hospitals, an investigation has found. Ten NHS trusts have admitted burning foetal remains alongside other rubbish while two others used the bodies in ‘waste-to-energy’ plants which generate power for heat. […]

 

It’s a shame the UK doesn’t have a death penalty

**Posted by Phineas For these two brave knights of Allah blood-crazed jihadis richly deserve it: Michael Adebolajo and Michael Adebowale were found guilty on 19th December 2013 of killing 25-year-old soldier Lee Rigby, who had served a tour of duty in Afghanistan. Adebolajo, 28, was sentenced to a whole life tariff. Adebowale, 22, was sentenced […]

 

Cult of Personality Watch: US Embassy becomes Obama Embassy

Posted by: Phineas on December 17, 2013 at 12:30 pm » 12 Comments

**Posted by Phineas (Photo credit: NICHOLAS KAMM/AFP/Getty Images) Sure, all US embassies and consulates have portraits of the current president hanging in the offices; he is, after all, Head of State. But… Well… This is just a bit much: Large tapestry portraits of President Barack Obama were unveiled for guests at the U.S. Embassy in London […]

 

Free speech in Britain not dead; just gut-shot

**Posted by Phineas I’m telling you, George Orwell was a prophet: Neil Phillips said he was fingerprinted, DNA-swabbed and had his computers seized. The 44-year-old was held after posting: “My PC takes so long to shut down I’ve decided to call it Nelson Mandela.” Another read: “Free Mandela – switch the power off.” But police […]

 

You can’t kill a Gurkha. You can only make him mad, which is a bad idea.

**Posted by Phineas (Image via Wikipedia) You’d think the Taliban would have learned from their last encounter with Her Majesty’s Nepalese soldiers, but, no, there’s always someone who thinks “this time, it will be different.” And that, my friends, is the definition of madness: Acting L/Cpl [Tuljung] Gurung, who serves with the Royal Gurkha Rifles, was […]

 

. @DanHannanMEP for president in 2016?

Posted by: Phineas on September 25, 2013 at 4:29 pm » 1 Comment

**Posted by Phineas Look, if they could forge a birth certificate for Obama… (I kid! I kid!!!) Seriously, Conservative Member of the European Parliament and right-wing  rock star Daniel Hannan once again shows he “gets it” when it comes to what makes the Anglo-American civilization exceptional. This video is from a brief address Hannan gave […]

 

Moral Bankruptcy Continued: “Feminist” explains why sex selective abortions are “ok”

Posted by: ST on September 20, 2013 at 10:43 am » 1 Comment

Another day, another example of the utter failure of the modern day “feminist” movement when it comes to the responsibility and accountability of women (hat tip): When you talk about being pro-choice, sex selective abortion is often slung at you as the triumphant gotcha. “You love women so much you want them to be in […]
