Financing Islamic Evil

Friday, December 28th, 2007

Diana West has a great column on how misplaced, Western “guilt” has the effect that we pay billions of dollars to murderers and thieves. By erroneously assuming that Islamic evil is somehow the result of European Christendom, we continue to finance and perpetuate that evil: Paying Islam For Our Western Guilt Christmas came early to […]

Steyn on Benazir Bhutto

Thursday, December 27th, 2007

*** Scroll for updates *** Mark Steyn weighs in on the assassination of Benazir Bhutto: Benazir Bhutto’s return to Pakistan had a mad recklessness about it which give today’s events a horrible inevitability.

The Myth of a Global Warming “Consensus”

Thursday, December 20th, 2007

As we’ve noted many times before, Science isn’t Consensus, and Consensus isn’t Science. Author Michael Crichton has presented the definitive argument on this point. Nonetheless, supporters of human-induced Global Warming have wielded the supposed scientific “consensus” like a hammer in order to intimidate other scientists into silence and to pound the media into stereotyping anyone […]

People Bad, Planet Good

Tuesday, December 18th, 2007

For normal Americans, Christmas is a season celebrating “the birth of a child.” For Democrats, Christmas is just another political opportunity (“Jesus was a homeless child”). In this case they exploit “the children” to hide their true disdain for “the children.” Mark Steyn has a great editorial on Hillary and Al Gore’s erroneous politicization of […]

Births to Unmarried Women are Rising

Tuesday, December 11th, 2007

This is bad news for freedom and independence. John Derbyshire has these comments on the National Vital Statistics Report for 2006 birth data: The National Vital Statistics Report for 2006 came out last week, with some dismaying demographic data. “Percentage of births to unmarried women” (Table 1) was 38.5 percent nationwide, up 1.6 percent from […]

KyoTwo in Bali

Thursday, December 6th, 2007

Rush Limbaugh read part of this essay, Road to Bali by Peter Foster, on his show today, and it is an excellent exposition on the real agenda of the UN summit in Bali: The real theme of this United Nations gabfest — like that of its 12 predecessors, and of the hundreds, if not thousands, […]

Cashing In on an Inner Peace Prize

Thursday, December 6th, 2007

Holman W. Jenkins Jr. has an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal on Al Gore’s politically-based “peace” prize, the fallibility of scientists who “believe in global warmism only because everyone believes in global warmism,” and how Gore must avoid political office so he and his eco-opportunists can cash-in before the whole fraud collapses. The first […]

Hanson on the NIE and Iranian Nukes

Monday, December 3rd, 2007

Writing at the Corner, Victor Davis Hanson comments on the NIE report that Iran halted its nuclear weapons program in 2003: The latest news from Iran about the supposed abandonment in 2003 of the effort to produce a Bomb — if even remotely accurate — presents somewhat of a dilemma for liberal Democrats. Are they […]

Islam Succumbs to a Teddy Bear

Monday, December 3rd, 2007

Some excellent reading on the latest Muslim absurdity: Don’t miss the NRO Symposium on the “teddy-bear intifada.” Tawfik Hamid: We have much to learn from the teddy-bear riots in Sudan. We see, in stark relief, the hypocrisy of many Islamic organizations in the West; in democratic societies they demand freedom of religion and civil rights […]
