Netanyahu gives UN hell

Benjamin Netanyahu, Prime Minister of Israel, did today what Daniel Patrick Moynihan, Nixon’s Ambassador to the United Nations, once did. He “gave them hell at the U.N.” In plain English, Netanyahu told More »

Creation ex nihilo – void

Genesis tells us God created an earth “without form and void.” As we shall see, that comes remarkably close to the understanding of early creation by modern physicists.

Eric Holder to Supreme Court?

Does de facto President Barack Obama want to appoint Eric Holder to the Supreme Court of the United States? Chuck Norris fears so. But he might want to take heart. Insurmountable resistance might come from a quarter no one expected.

Benjamin Netanyahu, Prime Minister of Israel, did today what Daniel Patrick Moynihan, Nixon’s Ambassador to the United Nations, once did. He “gave them hell at the U.N.” In plain English, Netanyahu told the world who really practiced terrorism. He ended by asking, in effect, whose side the world at large, and the U.N. in particular, would stand on.

Anti-Semitic attitudes and policies have been a sad part of Christendom since the Roman church superseded the Roman Empire. Who can forget The Merchant of Venice? Or The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion? (That last will bear mention later.) Or the negligent policies of the former Allied Powers of the First World War, that led to the ugliest part of the Second? But anti-Semitic policy did not start with Christendom. It did not even start with the Roman Empire. Instead, ancient Jewish chroniclers documented episodes of anti-Semitic policy during the Persian Empire.

Two days ago a recent Muslim convert acted out a brutal Muslim practice: kill those who won’t convert. He killed one woman and wounded another before a company officer wounded him in turn. And those in authority refuse to call this incident by its proper name: a terrorist act in the name of Allah.

Holder: try and convict him

Eric Holder
Print Friendly

Proven to be a faithful criminal with his little cronies under the Clinton administration, Attorney General Eric Holder has now been exposed once again by showing the American people how truly corrupt he is. If he is not stonewalling, then he is attempting to cover for some unlawful scandal this criminal administration has committed. Now he is even attempting to run from what he is responsible for by attempting to get out before being held accountable.

President Obama stepped off the U.S. Marine Corps helicopter (Marine One) in New York City Tuesday, September 23, 2014, to attend a U.N. General Assembly meeting. It was sickening to watch President Obama return a formal military salute from two Marines standing at attention in their dress uniforms with a sloppy limp salute using his right hand which was holding a Styrofoam cup., a gesture that has been labeled the ‘latte salute.’

A Chinese-American team may have discovered, if not a “Precambrian rabbit,” the next best thing: Precambrian embryonic fossils showing the kind of development only multicellular organisms show. The team leaders do not know whether they found an early plant or animal. But their find, if it holds, threatens to shake the foundations of biological evolution.

Eric Holder Resigns

Print Friendly

Eric Holder, Obama’s attack-dog Attorney General, resigned today. Everyone knows this by now. He decided it suddenly and with about six hours’ warning. But he did not say why he resigned. He has four possible reasons for resigning. All have to do with his hostility to the Constitution. They also reflect his desire, that Obama shares, to “fundamentally transform” the United States of America.

The Federal gun law of 1994 is about to expire.  This law made it illegal to manufacture or own a semi-automatic weapon that would let the user handle and fire the weapon skilfully.  It limited the magazine capacity for these weapons while not limiting how many magazines one could own.
