Radical Islamist Terrorism emboldened by anti-American Barack Obama

Radical Islamist Terrorism emboldened by anti-American Barack Obama

The “British accent” of the Islamic State beast who brutally beheaded American photojournalist James Wright Foley serves as the defining moment in the scourge of radical Islamic terrorism.

That defining moment underlines in blood how Western leaders who allow the flow of terrorists across their borders have relinquished the safety of their own citizens for convenience, cowardice and political expediency.

Canada considering restricting citizenship by birth
 By Arthur Weinreb

Canada and the United States are the only two Western countries that automatically grant citizenship to babies born within their respective countries. In Canada, the only exception to this rule is for persons born on Canadian soil while one of their parents are in the country as part of a diplomatic mission. Most other countries provide citizenship only to those children whose parents are citizens or legal residents of the country the children are born in.

EPA Pesticide Bans Threaten You and the Economy
 By Alan Caruba

When Rachel Carson’s book, “Silent Spring”, was published, filled with totally false claims about DDT, the Environmental Protection Agency looked it over and concluded she had used manipulated data. They concluded that DDT should not be banned, but its first administrator, William Ruckleshaus, overruled the agency and imposed a ban.

What is Wrong with ISIS, is What is Wrong with Islam
 By Daniel Greenfield

Know your enemy. To know what ISIS is, we have to clear away the media myths about ISIS.

ISIS is not a new phenomenon.

Why Do Black Leaders Have Preconceived Notions of Guilt When the Races Exchange Roles?
 By Jerry McConnell

If at first you don’t succeed, try - oops; not that one, but it’s very close.  The one I’m thinking of when I heard that the cavalry, in the form of two black leaders, not Black Panthers, although that group are certainly present at this roasting; but these warriors heard that a young black boy got shot by a white policeman during the riots in Ferguson, suburb of St. Louis, Missouri, and they’re here to make sure some white cop gets not necessarily fair but equal treatment.

‘Little Green Men’ Believe in Global Warming
 By Judi McLeod

Only Paul Hellyer, Canada’s Defence Minister from 1963-67 under Prime Minister Lester B. Pearson who rose to Deputy Prime Minister under Pierre Elliott Trudeau, would tell you that not only do extraterrestrials exist, but they are getting ticked off with those earthlings who don’t buy into Al Gore,/Maurice Strong man-mad global warming.

Ferguson’s Old Grievances
 By Alan Caruba

Ferguson, Missouri, and its re-run of 1950s civil rights grievances has now achieved national stature with the dispatch of our black Attorney General, Eric Holder, by our black President, Barack Obama, to address the unhappiness of blacks in the community over the shooting of a 6’4”, nearly 300 pound, black teenager, Michael Brown, who we are repeatedly told was “unarmed.”

Trampling on Coal Country families
 By Paul Driessen

Trampling on Coal Country families

Between 1989 and 2010, Congress rejected nearly 700 cap-tax-and-trade and similar bills that their proponents claimed would control Earth’s perpetually fickle climate and weather. So even as real world crises erupt, President Obama is using executive fiats and regulations to impose his anti-hydrocarbon agenda, slash America’s fossil fuel use, bankrupt coal and utility companies, make electricity prices skyrocket, and “fundamentally transform” our economic, social, legal and constitutional system.

Turkey after the Presidential Election: A Difficult Challenge for Israel’s Foreign Policy

Turning America Into a War Zone, Where ‘We the People’ Are the Enemy
 By John W. Whitehead   --American Freedom

“If you don’t want to get shot, tased, pepper-sprayed, struck with a baton or thrown to the ground, just do what I tell you. Don’t argue with me, don’t call me names, don’t tell me that I can’t stop you, don’t say I’m a racist pig, don’t threaten that you’ll sue me and take away my badge. Don’t scream at me that you pay my salary, and don’t even think of aggressively walking towards me. Most field stops are complete in minutes. How difficult is it to cooperate for that long?”—Sunil Dutta, an officer with the Los Angeles Police Department for 17 years

Life in the American police state is an endless series of don’ts delivered at the end of a loaded gun: don’t talk back to police officers, don’t even think about defending yourself against a SWAT team raid (of which there are 80,000 every year), don’t run when a cop is nearby lest you be mistaken for a fleeing criminal, don’t carry a cane lest it be mistaken for a gun, don’t expect privacy in public, don’t let your kids walk to the playground alone, don’t engage in nonviolent protest near where a government official might pass, don’t try to grow vegetables in your front yard, don’t play music for tips in a metro station, don’t feed whales, and on and on.

Mike Ditka: Redskins name controversy just ‘all the politically correct idiots in America’
 By Dan Calabrese   --American Politics

Thought you’d enjoy this. As more of the American sports media buckles under activist pressure to banish the name and logo of the Washington Redskins from the face of the Earth, you have to hope that someone, somewhere, would have the cajones to stand up to them and call them out for what they are.

Trial by Media
 By Sarge   --Media - Media Bias

I watched CNN for as long as I could tolerate it. A totally biased and skewed assemblage of liberal whites and disaffected blacks tossed words about in a Washington D.C. or New York studio concerning the events in Ferguson, Missouri. It was no more than I expected and far less than anybody deserves considering the lack of facts possessed by outsiders hundreds of miles away from the incident.

New Study: Increase In Reported UK Flooding Due To Population Growth, Not Global Warming
 By Guest Column   --Global Warming-Energy-Environment

A rise in the number of reported floods in the UK over the past 129 years can mainly be explained by increased exposure, resulting from urban expansion and population growth, according to new research by the University of Southampton. In one of the most comprehensive studies of its kind, scientists have discovered that although the number of reported floods has gone up during the 20th and 21st Century, this trend disappears when the figures are adjusted to reflect population growth and increased building numbers over the same period.—Phys.org, 19 August 2014

The “Humanitarian Crisis” and the Coming Crime Wave in U.S. Cities
 By Tom Deweese   --American Freedom

The news is full of the “humanitarian crisis” taking place on the U.S. southern border. We hear of the “unaccompanied children” who have been tragically released into the nation without parental oversight. It paints a horrifying picture that has affected compassionate, caring Americans, bringing many to tears and wanting to help. That’s what Americans do. We care. We cry. We rush to help.

Flow Trend Realism in British Columbia’s Kettle River
 By Sierra Rayne   --Global Warming-Energy-Environment

The Kettle River system in south-central British Columbia appears to be another epicenter for environmental activism, requiring an antidote of reality. There certainly are good reasons to care for our aquatic systems, but solid public policy requires an accurate understanding of what the scientific data is telling us.

ISIS beheads American journalist, posts video on YouTube
 By Dan Calabrese   --Crime-Terror-Security

The video showing the beheading of freelance photojournalist James Foley has been the talk of the Internet and of the media since last night. We’re not going to show the one that includes the beheading - there’s nothing gained by broadcasting ISIS’s brutality to that degree - but it’s important that we all have a sober view of the dynamics at play here.

CNN’s Tapper: ‘I Don’t Know’ Is NOT Journalism

MSM and Left Racism on Parade in Ferguson
 By Lloyd Marcus   --American Politics

Talk about deja vu Trayvon Martin spin all over again, I could hardly believe my eyes. During a discussion on CNN about the shooting of Michael Brown by a white police officer, in the background was a photo of Brown in a school graduation cap and gown. Give me a break!

Defending Property Rights is a Uniquely American Duty
 By Autry J. Pruitt   --American Freedom

The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (PTO) created a fatal contradiction for itself when it announced on June 18 that it would cancel the trademarks of the Washington Redskins.  In handing down the decision, the PTO claimed the name was disparaging. However, a Freedom of Information Act request showed that nobody complained to the PTO about being disparaged by the name, revealing the decision as entirely subjective.

Is It Legal to Use the National Guard in Ferguson?
 By Heritage Foundation   --American Politics

The decision by Gov. Jay Nixon, D-Mo., to deploy the National Guard to the troubled community of Ferguson has raised a lot of questions about these citizen soldier units. After serving with distinction numerous times in both Iraq and Afghanistan, units of the National Guard are well thought of as military fighting men. Can they also be helpful in situations like Ferguson? Here is some information to help increase understanding of these direct lineal descendants of the Minute Men.

Ferguson rioters throw rocks at MSNBC host Chris Hayes during live broadcast
 By Robert Laurie   --American Politics

If you’ve ever had the misfortune of enduring MSNBC programming, you’re probably familiar with liberal icon Chris Hayes.  He used to host the network’s weekend morning show, and now anchors “All in with Chris Hayes” weeknights at 8 P.M. Recently, Hayes was doing his pre-pubescent Edward R. Murrow routine on the streets of Ferguson when things turned ugly.

Enjoy this ‘greatest hits’ compilation of Nancy Pelosi’s most incoherent ramblings
 By Robert Laurie   --American Politics

Sure. We’ve all heard Nancy Pelosi say something kooky.  Practically every time she steps up to a microphone something ridiculous flops out of her mouth, so her crackpot ramblings aren’t really shocking anymore.  It’s pretty much a mathematical certainty that - by now - you’ve heard her say something incredibly stupid.
