“Will hashtag activism help jailed marine?” asks Fox News commentator Lauren Ashburn. LOL, no! We live in a world of LOL, OMG and the somewhat rude LMAO. Thanks to Facebook, we yearn for instant ‘likes’ rather than finding meaningful ways to earn the respect of others. Twitter ‘s hashtag has already become the preserve of the career politician who uses it as ‘proof’ that they care about the vulnerable plight of the more ordinary. Surely the most obscene hashtag of all is #BringBackOurGirls.

Murder and Media

Multiple murders by a crazed killer will always generate headlines as they should. The latest occurred on May 23 when a mentally ill young man, Elliot Rodger, killed six and injured thirteen others. Of the six, he stabbed three and used a gun to kill or wound the others. He wasn’t the first to do this and he won’t be the last. These killers of multiple numbers of people all have insanity in common. It’s not about the weapon, it’s about the killer. In the 1940s when I was growing up, I went to a lot of movies in which killing

Americans no Longer
Live in a Scientific Society

Although we enjoy deceiving ourselves about how sophisticated today’s American culture is, we no longer even have a scientific society. This means that in the place of careful analysis, unbiased study, or scientific experimentation, meant to purify society with reliable facts—our leaders misuse science as another tool of propaganda to influence public opinion. In case after case, after public opinion has been molded by advocacy groups and politically correct zealots, science is then wheeled out to prop up the resident opinion. The only possible way to explain the outrageous, typically insulting and utterly counterproductive reaction to critics of current

Huge Ukip British victory sends message

Tea Party voters of America, take heart! Nigel Farage’s Ukip in Britain just went a long way in ridding the oh-so-politically correct David Cameron Tories of 105 of their seats (At press time). And there’s still another day of votes to count. The message? “Dave and Ed just don’t get it: By branding Ukip racists they’re damning millions of decent Britains”-Stephen Glover, Daily Mail, May 22, 2014. Obama comrade, Prime Minister David Cameron, Labour Leader Ed Miliband and Liberal Leader Nick Clegg threw everything but the proverbial kitchen sink at Ukip trying to impact their voter turnout by branding them “racists”.

Obama’s mad-and-not-going-to-take-

President Barack Obama’s Veteran Affairs scandal protestations that he’s as mad as hell and ain’t going to take it anymore is like his first baseball tosses: totally ornamental. Does Obama, a lifetime legend in his own mind, really think that verbalizing his anger will make the Veterans Affairs scandal go away? Following up his effusive “I’m mad” protestations, Obama vowed to “fix whatever is wrong” at the agency, while refusing to throw VA Secretary Eric Shinseki under his well populated bus. Obama described Shinseki as a “great soldier” who has “put his heart and soul into this thing”. “This thing” is the deaths of

President Barack Obama did not, as the White House claimed yesterday, only learn of the VA wait-list scandal on TV, just as he claimed to learn of the IRS, Fast and Furious and AP reporting snooping scandals. Obama campaigned on the VA scandal while still a senator in 2008, got elected president and then forgot about it—until the scandal came back into the light of publicity this month. “Speaking at a campaign rally in Charleston, W. Va., then Senator Obama promised veterans he would fix the problems plaguing Veterans Affairs hospitals: (grabien.com) “At a time when we’re facing the largest homecoming since the

The Climate Change Fundamentalists

Climate change fundamentalists are predicting an apocalypse. Human depredation in the form of unbridled materialism is the cause. Any dissent from the fundamentalists’ doomsday prophesies if their radical prescriptions to save humanity and Mother Earth are not followed is regarded as heresy. Charge the well-funded climate change “deniers” with committing “criminal negligence” for “their willful disregard for human life, “says Lawrence Torcello, a philosophy professor at the Rochester Institute of Technology. After all, heretics must be punished. Stop job-creating energy independence initiatives such as the Keystone XL pipeline, says the former director of the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies, James Hansen,

Compassionate grounds alone should be the reason to set free an eight-months-pregnant Christian mother and her 20-month-old baby from incarceration in Sudan. “Meriam Ibrahim has been sentenced to death by hanging after a Sudanese court found her guilty on charges of apostasy — converting from Islam — and 100 lashes on a charge of adultery. Her marriage to a Christian man was forbidden and voided in the eyes of the court.

Obama Administration Threatened Nigeria
with Sanctions in 2013 for Fighting Boko Haram

Hillary Clinton wasn’t the only Obama administration official who went to bat for Boko Haram over the past few years. Soon after John Kerry took over as Secretary of State, the U.S. Ambassador to Nigeria, Terence P. McCulley, accused the Nigerian government of butchery during a confrontation with Boko Haram terrorists in Baga, a Nigerian town on the shores of Lake Chad, and in May 2013 threatened to withdraw U.S. military aid from the West African nation. Boko Haram militants attacked a Nigerian military outpost in April 2013 outside Baga, killing one soldier. Following the three-day battle human rights activists,

Control of children from pre-kindergarten age is how President Barack Obama is making the Fundamental Transformation of America a fait accompli. Depressing and demoralizing to know that today’s children are growing up under Marxist rule and that Marxism has been in the classroom for decades. But it is not yesterday or the day before, but today where the tables can be turned, and being depressed, demoralized and giving up is never the answer. It suits Obama and his mentors to make it appear that there are no good guys or bad guys anymore. If everyone is bad and hope is dead, there is

This is the Barack Obama-style ‘Climate Disruption’ end game: In the end, all will swallow Obama’s GD line without complaint because those who don’t will be branded racists. The beginning of Obama’s newly-named Climate Change takeover really began last January, when, standing in for Al Gore on convenient global warming lies, Al Sharpton turned up on MSNBC’s Politics Nation, sporting a white lab coat to feed more conspiracy theories to the hungry polar vortex hordes. “With multi-millionaire Al Gore in state-secret, Polar Vortex hiding, it’s left to race-baiter Al Sharpton to hold up the man-made global warming/climate change flag on national television.”

Rep. Trey Gowdy (R., S.C) who heads the select committee leading the probe into the September 11, 2012 Benghazi attack is in a position to end run the lying Democrats heading for hide-y-holes by subpoenaing the man who likely knows the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. That man is Mark Basseley Youssef, the elusive writer, producer and promoter of Innocence of Muslims. Since his release from a halfway house on Sept. 26, 2013, Youssef, whose YouTube video was blamed by Obama administration officials for the Benghazi attack, has faded into obscurity. Why? What if Youssef, who served several months

CNN’s international correspondent Jim Clancy called the West Point response to President Obama’s meandering foreign policy address “pretty icy” Wednesday.Clancy said it was “not really a great speech to give at the U.S. Military Academy,” and the address has drawn bipartisan criticism.“It was a philosophical speech,” he said. “It was not a Commander-in-Chief speaking to his troops. And you heard the reception. I mean, it was pretty icy.” Obama said he believed strongly in American exceptionalism, but he continually used straw men in his address by implying that critics of his vision of foreign policy always advocated first and foremost for

The State Department misplaced and lost some $6 billion due to the improper filing of contracts during the past six years, mainly during the tenure of former Secretary of State Hilary Clinton, according to a newly released Inspector General report. The $6 billion in unaccounted funds poses a “significant financial risk and demonstrates a lack of internal control over the Department’s contract actions,” according to the report. The alert, originally sent on March 20 and just released this week, warns that the missing contracting funds “could expose the department to substantial financial losses.” The report centered on State Department contracts

Maya Angelou, a renowned poet, novelist and actress whose work defied description under a simple label, has died, her literary agent, Helen Brann, said Wednesday. She died at her home in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, Brann said. A professor, singer and dancer, Angelou´s work spans several professions. In 2011, President Barack Obama awarded her with the Medal of Freedom, the country´s highest civilian honor. She spent her early years studying dance and drama in San Francisco, but dropped out at age 14, instead becoming the city´s first African-American female cable car conductor.

Great lives, fully lived, cast long shadows. Fifty years after his death, it’s not unusual to hear people rank Douglas MacArthur among America’s worst generals—alongside Benedict Arnold and William Westmoreland. His critics say he was insubordinate and arrogant, callous in dealing with dissent, his Korean War command studded with mistakes. “MacArthur could never see another sun, or even a moon for that matter, in the heavens, as long as he was the sun,” once said President Eisenhower, who had served under MacArthur in the Pacific. Some of what the critics say is undoubtedly true, but much of what they say

The White House has launched an internal probe after its press office inadvertently outed the top CIA official in Afghanistan -- a national security blunder that could put that individual at risk. A spokeswoman with the National Security Council confirmed to Fox News that the White House chief of staff asked White House Counsel Neil Eggleston to “look into what happened” and make recommendations on “how the administration can improve processes and make sure something like this does not happen again.” The brief statement from the National Security Council was the first on-the-record comment made by the administration since the

Real estate mogul Donald Trump says he has no regrets about demanding President Obama’s records. ‘Not even a little bit,“ Trump said Tuesday at the National Press Club when asked if he regretted questioning Obama’s citizenship. “I don’t regret it. Why would I regret it?” Tuesday, Trump alluded to a promotional booklet revealed by Breitbart in May 2012 and produced in 1991 by Acton & Dystel that asserted Obama was born in Kenya. Miriam Goderich, who was an agency assistant at the time told Yahoo News that month that the claim amounted to a fact-checking error on her part. In

But beneath that icy surface was a passionate woman who needed the closeness of men every bit as much as her philandering husband Jack Kennedy needed other women, reveals a blockbuster new biography. And while it was widely reported that Jackie had an affair with Bobby Kennedy following Jack’s assassination in 1963, now it is disclosed for the first time that Teddy was having clandestine trysts with Jackie before and after Bobby was murdered.

Today in the Rose Garden, President Obama announced that he’s going to keep a little under 10,000 troops in Afghanistan through 2014, half that number by the end of 2015, and will have all those forces out by the end of 2016. Putting aside the fact that this is the lowest number military advisors estimated was necessary to maintain training and some counterterrorism capability in country over not just one year but several, the decision to halve and then zero out those forces by 2016 is a reminder not only of how seriously unserious this president on strategic matters can

The most striking revelation about Elliot Rodger, the alleged Santa Barbara shooter, is that he had been in therapy for most of his life. A family friend said Rodger had been seeing a therapist since the age of eight. Apparently he had visited a therapist "virtually every day" during his high school years. By the time of the massacre and suicide at the University of Santa Barbara over the weekend, when he was 22, Rodger reportedly had "multiple therapists." Today it has been revealed that so central were his therapists to his daily existence that he emailed his hateful 141-page manifesto to

Cliven Bundy, the Nevada rancher who gained notoriety in April for his standoff with the Bureau of Land Management, has announced he is leaving the Republican Party. The 68-year-old rancher, who owes the BLM nearly $1 million in grazing fees, won early praise from GOP lawmakers for his standoff with armed Interior Department officers. Republicans later distanced themselves from Bundy after he suggested "the negro" was better off a slave. Bundy and his wife Carol signed new registration forms at an event held by the Independent American Party. The event was billed by organizers as a celebration of Bundy´s "courage

To Gwyneth Paltrow, facing a barrage of negative and anonymous Internet comments is almost akin to dodging bullets or bombs in war. The actress who recently "consciously uncoupled" from her husband Chris Martin has often been accused of being out of touch, and she may have outdone herself the day after Memorial Day when speaking about how "our culture is trying to wrestle with the idea that everybody has a voice, and how it’s unimportant and really important at the same time." “You come across [online comments] about yourself and about your friends, and it’s a very dehumanizing thing.

The National Park Service will start considering more sites important to the history of LGBT rights in the U.S., based on the recommendation of a recently convened panel through the Department of Interior. The panel of 18 scholars is examining the history of the LGBT movement, according to a report from the Associated Press. Interior Secretary Sally Jewell will announce the panel on Friday. There are three federally recognized sites in the U.S. chosen in part for their importance to LGBT history, one of which is landmarked — the Stonewall Inn in New York gained the distinction in 2000.
