BY THE NUMBERS

August 22 2011
By

More people are killed by Islamists each year than in all 350 years of the Spanish Inquisition combined. Islamic terrorists murder more people every day than the Ku Klux Klan has in the last 50 years. Islam is barbarism; it is not a rival religion to Christianity, Hinduism, Judaism or all the others great and…

THE HAMAS CHARTER

June 20 2011
By

The Hamas Charter quite simply calls for the destruction of Israel and the death of all Jewish pigs. The Charter dates from 1988 and Hamas apologists insist that it is out of date and Hamas is now a bunch of good guys. The fact remains that nothing prevents the leaders of Hamas from saying “WE…

The following is a very brief excerpt from A MAJOR PUBLICATION contained within The National Security Archive. The whole of it is well worth reading but is terribly long and you should probably skim through it. Here is the LINK to the document.

DON’T LET INNOCENCE GET IN THE WAY

May 29 2010
By

The Obama Administration is committed to three principals: good ends justify any old means; presumption of innocence is a damn nuisance when you know in your heart of hearts you are imprisoning bad guys; the right to speedy trials applies only when it is not an inconvenience. These three principals converge nicely in the case…

The process starts with a tip, a scrap of intelligence, a fingerprint lifted from a suspected terrorist’s home. It ends when a person is forbidden to board an airplane – a decision that’s in the hands of about six experts from the Transportation Security Administration. Screening could take minutes to put a name on the…

OBAMA – OUR WORST NIGHTMARE?

April 7 2010
By

Barack Hussein Obama has already authorized unmanned drone attacks in areas of Afghanistan and Pakistan where the risk of killing civilians is very high. In fact, killings have occurred, occasionally followed by apologies but sometimes not. The attacks are not even by our military forces but by the CIA, which has no authority to conduct…

STUPID, VICIOUS OR STOOGE?

March 13 2010
By

I have a friend who, whenever she learns of the latest invasion of our privacies whether by police or high ranking government, says, “Well, I have nothing to hide.” Perhaps this explains why she does not worry over voyeurs peeking through her window while she showers. Perhaps potential voyeurs worry about what they will see…

IMPEACH OBAMA?

By

How do you organize your values? What moves you more, injustices or suffering? When you learned about the ways in which Bernie Madoff drove people to total bankruptcy, what did you feel more, sorrow and sympathy for his victims for fury and hatred for Bernie? Are you bothered more about our lousy health care system…

THE OBAMA PLAN

October 11 2009
By

Maybe Joe Biden should resign. He is the only holdout in the Administration against bigger and better forces in Afghanistan. He thinks we can get to al Qaeda some other way. I think it doesn’t make a damned bit of difference. Although Bush and his henchmen boasted that they foiled hundreds of attempts to blow…

ONE MAN’S UGLY OPINION

By

From Foreign Policy – by Amos N. Guira I will say right at the start, that Mr. Guira’s views of justified killing are dead wrong.

YOUR FRIEND AND MINE, MR OBAMA

July 10 2009
By

Adding to his list of nefarious and bungling deeds, Mr. Obama’s (ridiculously named) Justice Department continues to implement Bush’s secret war against America. In 2004, an Oregon-based charity named Al-Haramain Foundation was ruled to be a Specially Designated Global Terrorist. Don’t ask why, because the attorneys defending A-Haramain don’t know why. The Office of Foreign…
