I am very optimistic about Iraq. I mean, this could be one of the great achievements of this administration—Vice President Joe Biden.
Those who don’t comply, will be punished.
The above warning, issued by the feared Saudi Arabian religious police, is deadly serious and is aimed at merchants throughout the Kingdom. The Saudi religious police, guardians of Islamic religious traditions and mores in that country, have mobilized once again to crack down on an event that occurs every year at this time, and which threatens to upend Saudi civilization and shake it to its very foundation: Valentine’s Day.
As of today, and until the 15th of the month, it is now illegal in the benevolent Kingdom for a merchant to sell any item that is red, or in any way alludes to that most destructive and decadent of Western holidays. Merchants will be subject to surprise store inspections, and any found to be selling such items as red roses, toys, red clothing (especially dresses), heart-shaped products, candy, greeting cards or any items wrapped in red must destroy them, or face the wrath of Saudi Arabia’s ruthless Wahhabi inspired justice system. read more…
Normally, the birth of a child is an event that brings great joy to a household. In the case of South Africa’s president Jacob Zuma, however, it has brought embarrassment, shame and scandal. The problem for President Zuma stems from the fact that the child was born out of wedlock—the product of an illicit affair.
The [face-covering] veil is not a sign of religion, but a sign of subservience. We cannot accept to have in our country, women who are prisoners behind netting, cut off from all social life, deprived of identity—French President Nicolas Sarkozy
The U.S. government has gone to court to protect the right of women and girls to wear the hijab, and to punish those who would deny it. I reject the view of some in the West that a woman who chooses to cover her hair is somehow less equal, but I do believe that a woman who is denied an education is denied equality—U.S. President Barack Obama
The above quotes clearly illustrate two diametrically opposed approaches towards certain Muslim attire, which completely obscures the face of the woman wearing it—Sarkozy attacking it and Obama encouraging it. read more…
New Russian stealth fighter makes its first flight
It was called “the most outstanding fighter plane ever built.”
A fifth-generation fighter jet utilizing the latest stealth technology, it was a single seat, twin-engine powerhouse capable of overpowering anything it came up against. Known as the F-22 Raptor, its combination of stealth, speed, agility, precision, air-to-air and air-to-ground capabilities made it the best overall fighter plane in the world.
No other country had anything like it.
It did, however, have two enemies that it was powerless against: Barack Hussein Obama and the United States Senate. read more…
For those of you who are still on the fence when it comes to the existence of man-made climate change, take note that it has just been legitimized by none other than Osama bin Laden, the leader of the al-Qaeda Islamic terror network.
According to reports from Al Jazeera, the official voice of Islamic terrorism, bin Laden has released another in a series of audio-tapes (a series many hope will soon be cancelled by means of a well-placed Hellfire Missile fired from an unmanned drone, thereby reducing his carbon footprint), in which he not only admits to believing in global warming, but firmly puts the blame on the United States for causing the fictitious crisis in the first place by, among other things, not ratifying the Kyoto Protocol: read more…
Tran Huynh Duy Thuc, left, and Le Cong Dinh were sentenced to long prison terms in Vietnam
Tonight, Glen Beck will air his must-see special on communism, which should artfully recount the historical development of that inherently evil, political ideology. While Beck’s narrative will focus on the past, we must not lose sight of the fact that communism has not gone away, and its continued existence in much of the world still brings misery, oppression and death to those unfortunate enough to be living under its yoke.
Take Vietnam, for example.
This week, the communists ruling that country took, according to a European Union spokesman, a “major and regrettable step backwards,” by sentencing four people to stiff periods of incarceration (remember, in communist societies that usually means hard labor in a “re-education camp). After a speedy, one-day trial in typical communist fashion (behind closed doors), Tran Huynh Duy Thuc received a 16-year sentence. Nguyen Tien Trung got 7 years. Le Cong Dinh and Le Thang Long each received 5 years.
What was their crime? read more…
The Associated Press is reporting that Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton has signed orders enabling radical Muslim professor of philosophy Tariq Ramadan, of Oxford University in England, and professor Adam Habib, from the University of Johannesburg in South Africa, to re-enter the United States, after having been banned from doing so for over 5 years. read more…
The United Nations (UN), once again, has egg on its face.
In 1999, a little known Indian scientist named Syed Hasnain engaged in “speculations” about the melting of the world’s glaciers. He wrote a piece in a popular Indian magazine where he described his musings on the possible effects of global warming. His central premise was that, unless something was done, man-made climate change would ultimately lead to the melting of most of the glaciers of the Himalayas.
By his own admission, Hasnain did not conduct any formal research, was not peer reviewed and was not published in any scientific journal. read more…
Many of you have probably never heard of the existence of the Doomsday clock. In fact, it’s been around since 1947, when the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists (BAS) created it, as a means of measuring how close we are to the end-of-the-world.
Since its debut, and during the height of the Cold War between the United States and its communist antagonist, the now defunct Soviet Union (USSR), the minute hand was moved closer or further away from midnight depending on which way the political winds were blowing. The closest the clock came to Doomsday was 1953, when the U.S. and the USSR each exploded a hydrogen bomb. In response, the BAS measured the time as 3 minutes to midnight.
At the end of the Cold War, the BAS timekeepers moved the minute hand back a full seven minutes, to 17 minutes before midnight. In the year 2000, a complete catastrophe occurred which caused the BAS scientist-timekeepers to once again move the minute hand closer to midnight: the election of George W. Bush. read more…
In 2006, Internet company Google went against its own motto of “Don’t be Evil” and, under pressure from the Communist Chinese government, began to censor its search services in that country.
Eyeing a potential windfall from China’s huge population, and stymied in its expansion efforts by that country’s totalitarian Marxist regime, Google put principals aside and agreed to act as the eyes and ears of the Chinese rulers by becoming a de-facto government censor of Google’s search requests in China. read more…
