Is the Constitution dead?

Today we celebrate the 227th anniversary of the U.S. Constitution and ask the question, “is the Constitution dead?” Has it survived despite the many years of degradation it has suffered or did it succumb long ago?

The new anti-ethics

Forty years ago last month, President Richard M. Nixon resigned his office. No American President had ever resigned before. None has done so since. Furthermore, several of Nixon’s men went to jail. And only because they lied about a third-rate burglary in a political rival’s office. The country had a strong sense of ethics then. (Or so we thought.) Where is that ethics today? Or has a new anti-ethics taken its place? A new moral code that rewards those who promise “bread and circuses,” and no one cares whether anyone in government lies or not?

Obama advising Islamic State?

Jim Geraghty writes a daily newsletter for National Review. He calls it Morning Jolt. This morning he gave a “jolt” to his readers. He recalled a feature article in Sunday’s New York Times with interviews from several favored persons who sat down recently with de facto President Barack H. Obama. During that sit-down, Obama seemed to give free advice to the “Islamic State.” Does Barack Obama now let would-be new States consult him on how to run a war? If so, he might have given the Islamic State the best advice he could have given them, advice in keeping with their real goals. And that only compounds his treason.

Silk Road notes 3: glass

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.

Silk Road notes 2: trade

This article continues the series about the Silk Road exhibit at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History. As mentioned, the Silk Road exhibit betrays its name and deceives the visitors, individuals, schoolteachers and students who come to view it. Some of the visitors are of those cultures who made formidable contributions. Yet this exhibit omits or gives scant recognition to these contributions. This denies some viewers the knowledge and sense of pride they might otherwise have, if they could learn their heritage contributed to the growth of civilization along the early trade routes. For instance, this Islamic presentation allowed about 20% credit to the Chinese, where the Silk Road began.

Who do men say that I The Son of Man am? And they said, Some say that thou art John the Baptist (He who pointed his finger at King Herod for all of the evils in which he had done, Luke 3:19); some Elijah (He who confronted the King Ahab and Jezebel, 1 Kings 18:17); and others Jeremiah (He who was sent to warn the Kings, Priests, as well as the people to turn back to God, Jeremiah 1:10) or one of the prophets.

An exhibit, “1001 Inventions” is now showing worldwide, and what appears to be a small section, regarding the Silk Road, is on display at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History. The larger professes to be a revelation of a thousand years of scientific and cultural achievements by the Muslim world, with a nod to the various faiths and cultures that contributed. However, these faiths and cultures were victims of Muslim jihadists, those who followed in the footsteps of Mohammed and invaded the non-Muslim world over 1400 years – beheaded, slaughtered, raped, plundered, and took ownership of the creativity and advancements made by the besieged, converted survivors.

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?
Print Friendly

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

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.
