When Dissent Isn’t Patriotic: How Politico Is Playing Media Matters’ Game to Censor Conservatives - Big Journalism

We Can No Longer Ignore The Threat

We Can No Longer Ignore The Threat



Mitch Silber from the New York Police Department’s Intelligence Division explains how his new book, “The al-Qaeda Factor: Plots Against The West,” analyzes 16 different al-Qaeda plots in both Europe and North America since 1993. By looking into past attacks, units such as the NYPD might be able to thwart future terrorist attacks on the homeland. Al-Qaeda core influence has diminished over the years and they could not achieve their goals without people coming to them from Western nations instead of them going out and recruiting. Conspirators come from the West and policymakers need to understand that, they also need to understand the two main factors that lead a person to violence. Mitch explains that these two factors are political grievances or a literalist interpretation of Islam that calls for violence to combat non-believers. The Obama Administration desires to find that ideology plays no role in extremism, but rather just political grievances, which is a fallacy. A literalist interpretation of Islamic doctrine is at the forefront of violent extremism. Does the Obama Administration properly recognize the threat that America faces? Is the president taking the proper steps to ensure American security?

» TWO LAWYERS, one Jewish, one Catholic, join forces to fight the Islamization of America Bare Naked Islam: AFLC Senior Counsel Co-Authors Startling Study of U.S. Mosques

A leading international peer-reviewed journal specializing in the empirical study of terrorism has published a study that found that 80% of U.S. mosques provide their worshippers with jihad-style literature promoting the use of violence against non-believers and that the imams in those mosques expressly promote that literature. The study also found that when a mosque imam or its worshippers were “sharia-adherent,” as measured by certain behaviors in conformity with Islamic law, the mosque was more likely to provide this violent literature and the imam was more likely to promote it.

A random survey of 100 representative mosques in the U.S. was conducted to measure the correlation between Sharia adherence and dogma calling for violence against non-believers. Of the 100 mosques surveyed, 51% had texts on site rated as severely advocating violence; 30% had texts rated as moderately advocating violence; and 19% had no violent texts at all. Mosques that presented as Sharia adherent were more likely to feature violence-positive texts on site than were their non-Sharia-adherent counterparts. In 84.5% of the mosques, the imam recommended studying violence-positive texts.

Merkel: Europe Faces 'Long Road' to Win Back Trust - ABC News

Merkel: Europe Faces 'Long Road' to Win Back Trust - ABC News: German Chancellor Angela Merkel said Standard and Poor's downgrades of nine countries underline the fact that the eurozone faces a "long road" to win back investors' confidence, pushing Saturday for it to move quickly on a new budget discipline pact and a permanent rescue fund.

Germany kept its AAA rating but S&P stripped France, with which it has co-piloted the eurozone rescue drive, of its top-notch rating — fueling concerns that that in turn could complicate Europe's efforts to keep its weaker economies afloat.

Merkel said that she had "taken note" of the decision by S&P, which she stressed repeatedly is only one of three major rating agencies.

"The decision confirms my conviction that we in Europe still have a long road ahead of us before the confidence of investors is restored," she said at a televised news conference in the north German city of Kiel, where her conservative party's leadership was meeting.

"But I think it can be seen that we have set off with determination along this road (to) a stable currency, solid finances and sustainable growth," she added.

The Dialogue in Hell Between Machiavelli and Montesquieu - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Dialogue in Hell Between Machiavelli and Montesquieu - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia



The Dialogue in Hell Between Machiavelli and Montesquieu (in the original French Dialogue aux enfers entre Machiavel et Montesquieu) is a satirical book written by Maurice Joly, an attorney with political views that were conservative, monarchist, and legitimistic, which was first published in Geneva, Switzerland in 1864. It was written in protest against the regime of Napoleon III.

In the book Niccolò di Bernardo dei Machiavelli and Charles-Louis de Secondat, baron de La Brède et de Montesquieu engage in dialectical argument, with Machiavelli (whom Joly consigned to hell because he believed Machiavelli's work The Prince was almost a "how-to" manual for usurpers) taking the case for the power of the state as ultimate authority and Montesquieu (whom Joly consigned to hell for supporting the idea of popular sovereignty, which the legitimistic Joly refused to tolerate) putting forth a contrasting liberal thesis. The book was banned by the Napoleonic regime and confiscated upon distribution into France. Joly was imprisoned for fifteen months for having written the work.

McCarthyism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

McCarthyism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: The Communist Control Act of 1954 was passed with overwhelming support in both houses of Congress after very little debate. Jointly drafted by Republican John Marshall Butler and Democrat Hubert Humphrey, the law was an extension of the Internal Security Act of 1950, and sought to outlaw the Communist Party by declaring that the party, as well as "Communist-Infiltrated Organizations" were "not entitled to any of the rights, privileges, and immunities attendant upon legal bodies". The Communist Control Act never had any significant effect, and was perhaps most notable for the odd mix of liberals and conservatives among its supporters. It was successfully applied only twice: in 1954 it was used to prevent Communist Party members from appearing on the New Jersey state ballot, and in 1960 it was cited to deny the CPUSA recognition as an employer under New York State's unemployment compensation system.

Free Enterprise | Mitt Romney for President

Free Enterprise | Mitt Romney for President


Free Enterprise Needs No Apology
President Obama wants to put free enterprise on trial. In the last few days, we have seen some desperate Republicans join forces with him. This is such a mistake for our Party and for our nation. This country already has a leader who divides us with the bitter politics of envy. We must offer an alternative vision. I stand ready to lead us down a different path, where we are lifted up by our desire to succeed, not dragged down by a resentment of success. In these difficult times, we cannot abandon the core values that define us as unique -- We are One Nation, Under God. Make no mistake: in this campaign, I will offer the American ideals of economic freedom a clear and unapologetic defense.

Bendlerblock - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Bendlerblock - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: The Bendlerblock is a building in Berlin, located on the Stauffenbergstraße (originally named the Bendlerstraße), south of the Tiergarten. The building was erected between 1911 and 1914 for the Imperial German Navy Offices. During the Weimar Republic it served as the seat of the Reichswehr command and the Ministry of Defence. Since 1993, the building complex has served as a secondary seat of the German Federal Ministry of Defence. It is also notable as the headquarters of the Wehrmacht officers who carried out the July 20 plot against the life of Adolf Hitler. As the leaders of the conspiracy were summarily shot in the courtyard, the Bendlerblock also includes the Memorial to the German Resistance.

Like Rats Fleeing a Sinking...Train... | Red County

Like Rats Fleeing a Sinking...Train... | Red County: California’s High Speed Rail Authority is undergoing some major shakeups,and nobody seems to know what is coming next. Yesterday’s announcements of resignation by both CEO Roelof Van Ark and Board Chairman Tom Umberg follow last week’s press release that PR queen Rachel Wall was leaving for a job at WalMart. Kathy Hamilton also reports on resignations other news franchises had missed, with the absence of Board member Matthew Toledo, and Dan Leavitt, the Deputy Director who specialized in California Environmental processes. I am told by a friend who attended yesterday’s Board meeting that Leavitt did not even attend the meeting to give his resignation in person, and that several days ago Matthew Toledo was a name on the website in the morning, and was gone from the website’s “Board “ page by afternoon, with not even so much as a press release.

Some believe the top leadership is being swapped out by a Brown-Obama vision to become even more aggressive in implementing this failed project, despite warnings from everyone from the Peer Review to the LAO.

Moonbattery » Solyndra Plans to Pass Out Bonuses

Moonbattery » Solyndra Plans to Pass Out Bonuses: Nothing is beyond the nerve of our liberal overlords and their crony capitalist bankrollers. Remember Solyndra, the bankrupt green energy boondoggle through which Obama laundered our money to pay off his campaign supporters, leaving taxpayers on the hook for a staggering $535,000,000? It now plans to pass out half a $million in bonuses:

Nearly two dozen Solyndra employees could receive bonuses ranging from $10,000 to $50,000 each under a proposal filed by Solyndra’s attorneys in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Delaware.

Fortunately, there aren’t many Solyndra employees left, or the bonus bonanza would be even more extravagant.

Most of Solyndra’s employees were laid off last year. The company employed about 1,100 people last year. Just 84 remain.

$535 million divided by 84 = $6,369,047.62 of our money per useless “green job.”

The Worst Economic Recovery Since The Great Depression - Forbes

The Worst Economic Recovery Since The Great Depression - Forbes: When President Obama entered office in January, 2009, the recession was already in its 13th month. His responsibility was to manage a timely, robust recovery to get America back on track again. Based on the historical record, that recovery was imminent, within a couple of months or so. Despite widespread fear, nothing fundamental had changed to deprive America of the long term, world-leading prosperity it had enjoyed going back 300 years.

Supposedly a forward looking progressive, Obama proved to be America’s first backward looking regressive. His first act was to increase federal borrowing, the national debt and the deficit by nearly a trillion dollars to finance a supposed “stimulus” package, based on the discredited Keynesian theory left for dead 30 years ago holding that increased government spending, deficits and debt are what promote economic growth and recovery. That theory arose in the 1930s as the answer to the Great Depression, which, of course, never worked.

The Morall Fabillis of Esope the Phrygian - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Morall Fabillis of Esope the Phrygian - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


The Morall Fabillis of Esope the Phrygian is a cycle of connected poems by the Scottish makar Robert Henryson. In the accepted text it consists of thirteen versions of fables, seven modelled on stories from "Aesop" expanded from the Latin elegaic Romulus manuscripts, one of the standard fable texts in medieval Europe. The remaining six follow the more general beast epic tradition. Five of this second group feature Henryson's version of the Reynardian trickster figure, the fox, who he calls Lowrence. The core of the poems in the beast epic group explore a relationship between Lowrence and the figure of the wolf, who similarly appears in five of the six. The wolf then "overlaps" the beast epic poems of the cycle to make a sixth and most brutal appearance in the final verse Romulus section.
The subtle and ambiguous way in which Henryson adapted and juxtaposed material from a diversity of sources in the tradition and exploited anthropomorphic conventions to blend human characteristics with animal observation both worked within, and pushed the bounds of, standard practice in the common medieval art of fable re-telling. Henryson fully exploited the fluid aspects of the tradition to produce an unusually sophisticated moral narrative, unique of its kind, making high art of an otherwise conventional genre.[1]
Internal evidence suggests that the work was composed in or around the 1480s.

Obama Excuses Over 500,000 Union Members From Obamacare

Posted by • January 12, 2012 • Comments (0)

-By Warner Todd Huston

Remember back in the days of the debate over Obamacare when unions were the biggest voices screaming in support of the legislation? Many labor union bosses said that nationalized healthcare was exactly what they wanted. Further they said it was what was good for the country. Yet now we learn that Obama has given waivers to some 550,000 union members so that they don;t have to suffer under Obamacare.

Paul Connor reports that a classic Friday evening document dump from the White House shows that unions employing up to 543,812 members have received waivers fro the Obama administration.

Fridays are often the one day of the week when government agencies satisfy transparency rules and release documents that show what they’ve been up to. They release them on Friday in the early evening because they understand that reporters are already headed home for the weekend and TV news departments have already programed their evening newscasts. These agencies also understand that news agencies don’t often cover heavy news on weekends. Further, by the time Monday rolls around the document will be “old news” and many of them will simply escape attention.

But all these waivers really do make one ask a central question. If Obamacare is so great, why all the waivers? Why any waivers? More specifically, if Obamacare is such a well-accepted panacea for all that ails us, why are the unions who pushed so hard for Obamacare trying to get out from under it all?

It’s yet one more example of left-wingers making rules for the rest of us that they don’t want to suffer under themselves and then getting the politicians they bought and paid for to make sure that everyone but they have to suffer under those rules.

Rules are for you people, not liberals.

Communism: The Concise Encyclopedia of Economics | Library of Economics and Liberty

Communism: The Concise Encyclopedia of Economics | Library of Economics and Liberty: In the capitalist West, industrialization was a by-product of rising agricultural productivity. As output per farmer increased, fewer farmers were needed to feed the population. Those no longer needed in agriculture moved to cities and became industrial workers. Modernization and rising food production went hand in hand. Under communism, in contrast, industrialization accompanied falling agricultural productivity. The government used the food it wrenched from the peasants to feed industrial workers and pay for exports. The new industrial workers were, of course, former peasants who had fled the wretched conditions of the collective farms.3

Newt Gingrich divorced first wife Jackie Battley 'as she wasn't pretty enough to be First Lady' | Mail Online

Newt Gingrich divorced first wife Jackie Battley 'as she wasn't pretty enough to be First Lady' | Mail Online: Newt Gingrich divorced his first wife because she wasn't pretty enough, an aide has claimed.



The source told CNN that the GOP presidential candidate dumped Jackie Battley because she wasn't 'young or pretty enough' to be the wife of the leader of the country.

Court records now contradict his version of events when it comes to the end of his first marriage, as they show that his then-wife Battley did not want to get a divorce like he has claimed previously.

In an effort to lessen the blow that his tumultuous private life has had on his image as a God-loving conservative, Mr Gingrich has repeatedly claimed that both he and Jackie wanted a divorce, and he filed the complaint after she asked him to.

Ann Coulter - January 11, 2012 - WHO WOULDN'T ENJOY FIRING THESE PEOPLE?

Ann Coulter - January 11, 2012 - WHO WOULDN'T ENJOY FIRING THESE PEOPLE?: Earlier this week, Mitt Romney got into trouble for saying, "I like being able to fire people who provide services to me." To comprehend why the political class reacted as if Romney had just praised Hitler, you must understand that his critics live in a world in which no one can ever be fired -- a world known as "the government."

Jon Tester travels with pork and beef luggage | TheBlaze.com

Jon Tester travels with pork and beef luggage | TheBlaze.com


When Sen. Jon Tester (D-Mont.) travels back and forth from Washington, it’s a long trip. But he brings a huge 40-lbs. sack of pork and beef with him anyway. He carries it on the plane and places it in the overhead bin.

From the New York Times:

“Taking meat with us is just something that we do,” Senator Tester, 55, said over a meal of beef stroganoff cooked by his wife, Sharla, in their Capitol Hill town house. “We like our own meat.”

Just as some lawmakers cannot part with their pillow from home, the Testers do not like to leave their state without its meat, which they have been schlepping around the country for years, including to a family reunion in Hawaii.

They are also known to take purple barley, grown organically on their land along with lentils, winter wheat and peas, among other crops. On a recent trip, Mrs. Tester tucked a Ziploc bag of barley into her purse.

The senator’s loyalty to his state’s beef, in particular, stems not from the hyper food-sourcing that has become a near parody of itself on American menus, but from his own taste preferences, honed from a lifetime of raising, slaughtering and butchering Black Angus cattle.

Appetizing.

Congressional stagnation in the United States - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Congressional stagnation in the United States - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: Congressional stagnation is an American political theory that attempts to explain the high rate of incumbency re-election to the United States House of Representatives. In recent years this rate has been well over 90 per cent, with rarely more than 5-10 incumbents losing their House seats every election cycle. [1] The theory has existed since the 1970s, when political commentators were beginning to notice the trend, [2] with political science author and professor David Mayhew first writing about the "vanishing marginals" theory in 1974. [3]

The term "congressional stagnation" originates from the theory that Congress has become stagnant through the continuous re-election of the majority of incumbents, preserving the status quo.

Somali Atheism: The Satanic Policy of Saudi Arabia

Somali Atheism: The Satanic Policy of Saudi Arabia: “Beware of the barefooted man when he can finally afford a shoe.” This Egyptian saying applies to anyone from the lower class without manners or money if things change for him and he became wealthy and influential. It speaks of how his personality will change when he becomes rich after being poor and hungry. The changes are easy to see. After coming into money, the poor personality changes from weakness to power, from mercy to cruelty, from mildness to sarcasm and pride, from being nice to people to crushing people. And that saying goes perfectly with another saying, “Beware of a man who is full after being hungry.”

Church of Satan Policy on Politics

Church of Satan Policy on Politics

What constitutes the Church of Satan’s stance on any number of political issues is a topic often broached by students working on papers, journalists of varying stripes and intelligence, and other assorted researchers, trolls, or people with some form of axe to grind.

Here is what we consider to be the briefest answer:

“As has been said many times before, one’s politics are up to each individual member, and most of our members are political pragmatists. They support political candidates and movements whose goals reflect their own practical needs and desires. Our members span an amazing political spectrum, which includes but is not limited to: Libertarians, Liberals, Conservatives, Republicans, Democrats, Reform Party members, Independents, Capitalists, Socialists, Communists, Stalinists, Leninists, Trotskyites, Maoists, Zionists, Monarchists, Fascists, Anarchists, and just about anything else you could possibly imagine. It is up to each member to apply Satanism and determine what political means will reach his/her ends, and they are each solely responsible for this decision. Freedom and responsibility—must be a novel concept for those who aren’t Satanists. We take it in stride. Members who demand conformity from other members to their particular political fetish are welcomed to depart.”

—High Priest Peter H. Gilmore,
from his essay “A Map for the Misdirected

To elaborate for those who have some political ideal which they wish the Church of Satan to tout for them: The Church of Satan does not have an “official” political position. Note that individual members frequently do have political positions.

If Satanists wish to make their own political viewpoints known, then they present their concepts and are prepared to back them up with references and reason in whatever forum being used for this display. If our members decide to debate or dispute each other’s positions, we caution them to take the time to do so in a respectful manner. Remember our primary House Rule.

The Church of Satan is not going to demand that members conform to any particular political point of view, nor should our members expect the Church to assist them in forcing others to assent to their own positions.

If you seek out Satanists in their online or offline haunts, you will encounter individuals who assert positions that span the political spectrum. This includes our members from countries all over the world, each with their own political diversity which might surprise those who have not done their research. For a Satanist to expect, much less demand, consensus on any given issue, beyond basic advocacy of individual liberty within local laws, is an enterprise which is probably as masochistic as it is insane.

So it is wise to always keep in mind that as we’ve said above, the Church of Satan is a loosely knit cabal of individuals whose political opinions may (and do) vary. Those members who wish to involve themselves in politics do so in accord with the political and social ethos they individually uphold. The Church of Satan itself is not a political organization and doesn’t operate as such. There is no requirement that members must involve themselves in any form of political activity whatsoever.

Some naïve idealists seem to think that the Church of Satan as an organization risks irrelevancy if it does not become an advocate of certain political positions—usually their own pet issues which are assumed “must” be shared by other Satanists. This fear is based upon the assumption that the Church of Satan needs to change the world or risk “fading into obscurity.”

Satanism is a deep structure of practical, realizable ideas and most of us find the mantra that “political action is required to justify your existence” is just nonsense. The entire point of Satanism is that the Satanist does not have to change or improve reality, or make the world better, or attract attention from others by struggling to correct what one or others perceive to be the world’s wrongs. The fundamental point of Satanism is that the Satanist can control his own world without having to change anyone else’s first. This is essentially what choosing yourself as your own God is all about.

If there were only one copy of The Satanic Bible in existence, the person who read it and understood it would benefit just as well. There is no need for some collective action or group behavior. The primacy of the individual is assumed throughout Satanic doctrine. It follows then most emphatically that we are not martyrs. We Satanists do not exist to serve any political agenda.

The emotional drive to “change the world” is a common stage of early adult development typically beginning around age 16 and lasting until around age 24. Usually, individuals who become aware as to how the world actually functions—rather than being lost in a fantasy wherein they will be some sort of savior figure—come to realize that idealism (such as changing the world) is less important than the principle of getting what you want for yourself. That latter position should be an obvious development particularly for Satanists since we don’t hide our understanding that Satanists tend to be lone wolves and not herd animals. Because Satanism is intended to respect reality as it is (and not as anyone thinks it “should” be), it usually does not take long for a truly aware Satanist to set aside politics in favor of direct, personal efforts for selfish goals.

Overall, politics simply tends to be viewed by most Satanists as interesting, worthy of attention for upcoming changes, and even fun to play with when appropriate. However it is never a “cause” that we must live for. We, ourselves, our lives and love of life, are the only “causes” that we endorse without hesitation. Everything else is pretty much up for debate. Satanism itself is not a cause, rather it is a tool for advancing ourselves and those people and things which we deem to be of merit. Hence the Church of Satan first endorses autonomy for the individual as a primary, allowing the individual to then decide for himself what political viewpoints are most agreeable to him. If an individual decides that he attains pleasure through participation in political advocacy movements and organizations, he should realize that it is his own pleasure in participation that is the goal and the Satanic aspect of his actions, not necessarily the political agendas he is working to achieve.

Thus, the Church of Satan will not “fade” because we do not need to win any external approval to exist. We as an organization only need to continue as we have for over four decades to offer the tools through which our members may see through the conceptual traps that enslave the masses.

'Conservative Christians': Another Biased Labeling Eruption at the NYTimes | NewsBusters.org: The presence of conservative Christians sends New York Times political reporters into labeling overload, and that’s where Erik Eckholm could be found Saturday, “Evangelicals Step Up Efforts to United on an Alternative to Romney.”

Eleven conservative labels were crammed into Eckholm’s 1,100-word story, not including three more in the photo captions and one in quoted material, and a “religious right” reference in the text for good measure. By contrast, in January 2008 the Times was reluctant to call even uber-liberal pols like Jesse Jackson and Ted Kennedy liberal; those two and 2008 Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards were only “populists.” Here’s a sampling from Saturday:

Washington’s fix to spending problem? Spend more | trillion, obama, spending - Opinion - The Orange County Register

Washington’s fix to spending problem? Spend more | trillion, obama, spending - Opinion - The Orange County Register: When Ronald Reagan was president, he had to raise the debt ceiling to $1 trillion. Obama is currently trying to raise it to $16.3 trillion, up $1.2 trillion from last year when he raised it the last time and caused our first-ever credit downgrade.

To put Reagan's total debt of $1 trillion into perspective, in 2009 the Democratic Congress and Obama spent $1.4 trillion more than the government took in, which was 40 percent more than our total debt back then.

And yet Illinois remains the only state out of all 57 to forbid concealed-carry.
