Ebola: inadequate response

Ebola

The Obama administration did not stop Ebola from reaching American shores. Now it is not doing what it should to stop Ebola from spreading more widely. One class of citizens took matters into their own hands last night. All Americans must now do the same.

NPR propagandist ruse

NPR’s political position is heard by many, and its audience is led to sympathize with the Islamic enemies of civilization.  Our very future is in upheaval and I challenge NPR’s motives, ethics, and sense of responsibility.

Netanyahu gives UN hell

How should Israel feel about trusting Putin's Bitch?

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 ancient evil

Anti-Semitic attitudes and policies have been a sad part of Christendom since the Roman church superseded the Roman Empire.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.

King Saul didn’t listen!

King Saul died here, and at an Amalekite's hand.

The Old Testament is filled with instructions from God that modern day philosophers find puzzling. This is symptomatic of man thinking that God and His ways have to make sense to our small and limited brains, when in fact God tells us that His ways are not our ways (Isa. 55:8). We often fail to understand that God sees all of history laid out before Him, while we only see a small slice of it during our lifetimes. So, when man decides to do what is right in his own eyes and not in God’s, at some point he usually finds himself in a maze of problems that could have been avoided had he only listened.

Silk Road notes 5: ships

Silk Road route tracing

Navigation is one of the most important of the technologies  of the Silk Road. It is what made parts of the Silk Road passable. Muslims try to claim credit for that, too. And some of the claims are patently absurd.

Silk Road notes 3: glass

Silk Road route tracing

These notes on the Silk Road exhibit at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History continue with a discussion of glass and ceramics. Again the exhibit gives a false impression: that glassmaking and pottery began, or at least were most closely associated, with Islam.

Ted Cruz stands for Israel

How should Israel feel about trusting Putin's Bitch?

Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) had to take a stand recently. He spoke to a group and mentioned Israel as America’s ally. Some attendees shouted him down, and he walked away. But what should infuriate any true Christian is: the group was a nominally Christian group.

ISIS v. ISIL: does it matter?

Seal of the Islamic State. Is Obama their secret ally, sowing complacency to give this State time to build?

To most Americans, Obama’s use of the term ISIL instead of ISIS is a bit curious. It is widely acknowledged that ISIS stands for the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria while ISIL stands for the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant. But is the difference in the acronyms harmless or do they represent a hidden and sinister message?

Men of ideals? Really?

You Jews are always complaining of your own suffering, but you get fat off the poor, cheat the simple, exploit the virgin, pollute where you’ve exploited – America is one Big Jew!  We are soldiers fighting a war.  We are not criminals and we are not vandals but men of ideals.
