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 »

Blake's Image of Creation should be a warning to fools who deny God

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.

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?

Wrong number Holder

Eric Holder, or at least his aide, got caught with his pants down.

A senior aide to Attorney General Eric Holder, late Friday afternoon, called his buddies on the Democratic staff of the House Oversight Committee. He shared a scheme to release only part of the information the committee’s chairman wants from the Justice Department. And then he realized: he had dialed the wrong number.

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.

Gov. Christie, who are you?

Chris Christie of New Jersey: did he learn anything?

Dear Governor Christie: the scope and intent of this open letter is not meant to disparage you unfairly.  But…in respect to all which has occurred during your tenure, what you have done and not done, things you have said and not said, these two questions beg for answers:

Egypt offers Sinai lands?

Flag of Egypt. What happened in Egypt is a metaphor for American policy failures in the Middle East.
Print Friendly

A disputed report suggests the president of Egypt made to the Palestinians the most generous offer anyone could have imagined. If he did make such an offer Mahmoud Abbas refused. (The foreign ministry of Egypt denies the report.) Such an offer would be a little difficult for Israel to accept. It would be even more difficult for the Palestinians to refuse, if they want peace as they say.

Why hesitate before ISIS?

Muslim invasion coming

The Second Amendment guarantees our right to bear arms - and no lesser jurisdiction can interfere with that.

Many active supporters of the 2nd Amendment have spent endless hours gathering information on the benefits of an armed population.  They have presented incalculable amounts of data which prove beyond any doubt that people are safer if law-abiding citizens are not prevented from protecting themselves and their families from the many dregs of human debris which stalk our society.

American ignorance aids WH

Where knowledge is a duty, ignorance is a crime.

– Thomas Paine

The American people and their representatives are guilty of dereliction of duty when it comes to the failure to impeachment the criminal in office, Barack Hussein Obama, as well as this criminal administration. America is adding strength to tyranny by giving permission to destroy for yet another two years.

Firmament: what was it?

The Bible. Handbook of leadership

The only reasons the vapor canopy theory got any traction, were the many references to something like it in ancient tales of creation. Isaac Newton Vail tried to sell it to Christians the same way. Specifically he tried to make his vapor canopy sound like the “firmament” in Genesis chapter 1. (Or rather, one of the firmaments; more on that below.) But as Walter T. Brown and Bob Enyart separately say, Vail got it wrong. Because someone else, who should have known better, translated it wrong.

Fear of man

All throughout history terrorists of many nationalities and many religious backgrounds have used fear to overcome those they seek to annihilate. In the 20th century the images of German concentration camps reeked with fear so palatable that it can still be felt in decades old film clips. Unfortunately, the inhumanity of man against man is nothing new. As long as man occupies this earth, you can be sure that those seeking to conquer others through persecution and terror will sometimes be victorious.
