James Risen v. Obama

Presidents are supposed to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution. Can an executive order violate that oath?

James Risen, old-line reporter for The New York Times, thought the world changed in 2009. Like nearly everyone else at The New York Times (where he worked) and similar papers, he expected Barack Hussein Obama to change the world. Now at least a President would not only respect confidential sources but also take down the apparatus of State secrets. How wrong he was!

Islam and Iraq in Prophecy

An illustration of prophecy

Since many do not study prophecy and others believe there isn’t any need to since we will all be swept away before the period referred to as “The Tribulation” begins, they do not recognize the prophetic events unfolding before our very eyes. Before proceeding, it is necessary to stress that we can recognize the signs of the times but we cannot accurately predict how end time prophecies will play out or the specific dates of these occurrences.

Guardian of the guilty

Flag of Palestine - symbol of peace, or of war? Why does the ASA take their side?

Despite England’s experiences during World War II and her current informal “occupation” by her own brand of deadly Islamists, The Guardian’s views are neither civilized nor rational.  In his column, Gaza: this shameful injustice will only end if the cost of it rises, Seurnas Milne has a willful misinterpretation of the events in the Middle East.  His column is laden with stark hatred and lies, and he clearly champions a policy that supports the Hamas Covenant, a Charter that calls for the eventual creation of the 58th Islamic state in “Palestine,” and the obliteration or dissolution of the only homeland for the Jewish people – as well as the annihilation of the Jewish people worldwide.

Iraq: have we returned?

Maybe some of this equipment stayed behind in Iraq and is in the hands of the enemy.

That last few days have seen the most reluctant engagement of an enemy in the history of the United States. An army-without-a-country calling itself “The Islamic State” is roaming over vast tracts of land in northern Iraq. But now, on the orders of de facto President Obama, American planes have strafed Islamic State (IS) positions, and dropped food, water, and other supplies on top of a mountain for some civilians the IS has trapped there. Now we see American troops giving arms and ammunition to Kurdish fighters, the only fighters native to Iraq who are any good.

Muslim flag at White House?

A typical Muslim national flag: green with a white crescent and star.

Twenty years ago, a comic tract artist warned of a deadly ambition in the Muslim world. Muslims, he said, wanted to fly their green crescent-m00n-and-star flag over the White House. Few people even knew what he said, and even fewer took him seriously. But today Muslims, from a brutal commander of an army without a country to a real head-of-state, now avow that ambition openly. What have secular, and especially leftist or libertarian, politicians to say to that?

Geneva convention lies

The Red Cross symbol. The Geneva Convention has always been a Red Cross project.

Critics of the Republic of Israel throw the name “Geneva convention” around and make it a buzz phrase. Their premise: Israel breaks the Geneva convention, by how it either runs things in Judea and Samaria (“the West Bank”), or fights its war in and over Gaza. But a close read of the Geneva convention shows Israel has not broken that convention or any of its protocols. Their enemies break that convention all the time, but no one complains, even in a whisper.

The fire starter

Fire fighters

The arsonist or fire starter, the most vile of all creatures who dwell on this planet, come in two basic forms.

Las artistas unilluminated

Israel, Judea-Samaria, and Gaza. Perhaps the Geneva Convention applies here, but: is Israel truly in breach?

Re: Penelope Cruz, husband Javier Bardem write open letter calling Israel’s actions “genocide”, New York Daily News

When people step out of their sphere of familiarity and take on a cause with a background of sheer ignorance, they just can’t connect the dots! Ay, que lastima (what a pity)! Such is the case of Penelope Cruz, Javier Bardem, director Pedro Almodovar and others.

Lois Lerner: she-wolf

Logo of the Internal Revenue Service, the federal income tax authority

Lois Lerner, former head of the Exempt Organizations Division of the IRS, is every taxpayer’s nightmare of a tax agent. Like Zacchaeus, at least before Jesus passed through Jericho, she made herself one of the most despised women in America. She stands accused, in fact, of “showing the fig” (Greek sycophanteo I defraud by accusing falsely) as they used to call it in Zacchaeus’ day. In this case, Lois Lerner trumped-up evidence of wrongdoing or fatally irregular activity, in this case to deny tax-exempt status, or delay a finding until it no longer mattered.

HAMAS enforces lies

Hamas Damascus rally. What would those artistas thinki if they knew what these people really thought of them?

HAMAS (Ḥarakat al-Muqāwamah al-ʾIslāmiyyah, or Islamic Resistance Movement, or, as the word means in Arabic, “enthusiasm”) bears all the blame for civilian deaths in Gaza. They did more than start the war in Gaza. (In fact they’ve been at war with Israel since their founding, as their charter demands.) They do indeed launch rockets, and even run their war, from civilian areas. And they try to stop reporters from telling that story. Meanwhile, the world ignores Israeli efforts to keep the misery to a minimum.
