U.S. Citizen Prosecuted for Crime Illegal Immigrants Are Encouraged to Commit

2011 January 28

A woman in Ohio was recently sent to prison for 10 days, given 2 years probation and ordered to pay $50,000 in restitution for illegally falsifying records so her kids could attend a better school in a neighboring school district.

In an interview she readily admits that she did the things in which she’s accused. She defends herself by stating that her father, the children’s grandfather, lives in the district she enrolled them in and they live with him part time. read more…

Proof Anti-Semitic, Self-Hating Jews Do Exist

2010 August 25

In a recent study published this week, Belgian researchers found DNA proof that Adolf Hitler did, indeed, have Jewish ancestors. Using saliva swabs and samples from 39 of Hitler’s decedents, researchers found a chromosome called Haplogroup E1b1b1 – rare among Europeans but common in Sephardic and Ashkenazi Jews.

Jews are Wising Up: Leaving the Left and Moving Right in Record Numbers

How about a little gefilte fish to celebrate the good news?

How about a little gefilte fish to celebrate the good news?

In a recent survey by respected pollster Pew Research Center, the largest religious demographic shift in political party identification came from Jews. About 12% of Jews surveyed said their party affiliation was no longer the Left-leaning Democratic Party and about 13% more now identified as Right-leaning Republicans. About 3 times more Jews recently went to the Right than most other religious denominations. According to Pew:

Republicans also have made gains among Jewish voters; 33% now identify or lean Republican, up from 20% in 2008.

What, exactly, does that mean? Well, it’s obvious – that Jews aren’t dumb people. We know which way the wind blows and when you have a president and administration that saddles up with terrorist supporting regimes, most smart people would move in the opposite direction. When you have a president who accuses an entire country of mostly Jews of disliking him because of his middle name, we tend to get a little insulted – not to mention question his sanity. There are tons of reasons why Jews are leaving the Left, but it all comes down to this: read more…

Web Design FAIL: Iran’s New Holocaust Denial Cartoon Site

2010 August 21

Holocaust? What holocaust??

Holocaust? What holocaust??

As a professional artist, writer, and web designer of 15 years and with almost thirty years of online experience (both web-based and BBS based), I very often scour the web for exceptional examples of web design. This week, I hit upon a doozie.

Recently, Iran and it’s heavily state-controlled media wing made live a new website –– which  is based on a comic book written by Omid Mehdinejad and illustrated by Maziar Bijani. Plain and simple, the site denies the Jewish Holocaust as a fabrication and myth. Complete with swastika emblazoned user interface buttons, the site categorically rejects Jews as true followers of Moses and Abraham and even offers a “dedication” to those who lost their lives in WWII “under the pretext of the Holocaust”. read more…

Left-wing Anti-Semitism, Continued…

Jews, indentified by the yellow rouelle, being burned at the stake.

Medieval Jews, identified by the yellow rouelle, being burned at the stake.

I’m learning some new words today. A “rouelle” was a yellow circular ring used in the medieval 13th century to identify Jews. Other identifying markers have been used as early as the 8th century to identify Jews for persecution. The most recent example of such a mark is the yellow “Jude” arm bands worn by Jewish prisoners of the Nazis during World War II. Or is that the most recent example?

“Green” Fascism Starts with Bath Time

2010 July 26
We're not safe even in our own bathroom.

We're not safe even in our own bathroom.

The Department of Energy, led by Barry Obama and DOE head Steven Chu, has decided that taking a nice, long shower is a waste of energy – and therefore should be regulated. In a move that is tantamount to an invasion of privacy, manufacturers may not meet a customer’s demand for an inefficient,  water-guzzling shower head. Failure to meet the 2.5 gallon per minute restriction can result in substantial fines to manufacturers (and, of course, higher costs for consumers). The fact that hot showers and baths have been shown to be effective and cheap psychological therapy – which, of course, can result in  billions of dollars in savings on medical and business related expenses – seems lost on these green fascists. I know it’s a small thing, but where does it end? read more…

Researchers: For Many Voters, It’s Better to be Stupid than Right. No, Really?

2010 July 12
Woman pulling hair out.

Na! Na! Na! I'm not listening! I can't hear you!

We’ve all been there: You engage in a debate with a friend or family member who, it seems, would rather try to incessantly and relentlessly convince you that – say, water ain’t wet – than admit he or she’s wrong. It happens all the time. At home, in business, and especially in politics – people will spew the craziest stuff and forgo the adage, “It’s better to speak nothing and have people suspect you’re an idiot than to say something that confirms it.” It happens often at political blogs like NRB and conspiracy theorists live and breathe by this mindset.

Now, political scientists at University of Michigan have discovered some of the reasons why we do this. Bottom line: it’s scary to admit you’re wrong. In the political world and a democratic nation, one would think that facts would be a surefire way to convince someone that a particular opinion or course of action is the best/worst way to go. And, when presented with a misinformed individual, one would think that correcting this information would lead to the person having a change of mind. Not so, says political scientists: read more…

What’s God Got to Do with It? (A Reponse on Abortion to David Swindle, et al.)

2010 June 15

I thought I’d throw my hat into this debate in support of the notion that elective abortion is, indeed, murder.

David Swindle argues,

“Miscarriage is a basic fact of reproduction. Not every pregnancy will result in a new human being. That’s life and we accept that. And because of that at an instinctual level we do not comprehend the death of a first trimester human being as the same thing as the death of a developed human being.”

That’s false, and his article is an attempt to tell me what I believe.

Egyptian Lawyer’s Advice for Arab “Freedom Fighters”? Rape and Molest Israeli Girls

2010 June 14

In most Arab nations, women and girls have very little protection from sex crimes. Because Arab men cannot be held accountable in such countries for committing such crimes, an Egyptian lawyer is advising Arabs to rape Israeli girls. No kidding:

Leave [Arab] land so we won’t rape you. read more…
