Forget about letting Turkey into the EU; Turkey must be expelled from NATO

    Turkish president Erdogan must have a Jewish ancestor somewhere. Otherwise, how else could one explain Turkey’s over-the-top display of chutzpah in recent days.

    Virginia County to Interrogate Homeschool Teens about Their Religious Beliefs

    A school board in Virginia is considering the repeal of a policy that would have forced 14-year-old minors to stand before the school board to be interrogated about their religious beliefs.

    The Goochland County policy is aimed at homeschool families that fall under Virginia’s decades-old religious exemption statute, which acknowledges parents’ rights to direct the upbringing and education of their children.

    As the world has watched the horrific terrorist attacks in Paris, France last week, as radical Islamic jihadists murdered over a dozen innocent civilians and struck at the very heart of freedom, another terrorist group carried out what is being called the “second-deadliest terrorist attack in modern history.”

    Boko Haram, a radical Islamic jihadist army similar in its barbaric tactics to ISIS, slaughtered an estimated 2,000 innocent human beings last week, literally exterminating an entire city in northern Nigeria.

    As Christianity exits Europe, ‘Criminal Muslims’ fill void with rabid violence

    History provides ample evidence of ways in which the local church provides continuity, encouragement and support of family life and societal freedoms.

Throughout Europe, tens of thousands of churches have been torn down, sold and repurposed due to an 80-90 percent drop in attendance.

That equates to approximately 180-300 million “Radical Muslims,” nearly the entire population of the United | Read More »

    Marita Noon: Wind energy’s bluster peters out

    …the Department of Energy (DOE), which seems to indiscriminately throw money at any politically favored green-energy project, was tepid in its support for Cape Wind. DOE’s loan guarantees generally average about 60 percent of the project’s costs, but the $150 million offered to Cape Wind made up a mere 6 percent—and that, only after the project received commitments for about half of its financing. In most cases, the government guarantee comes before the private financing and signals a go-ahead for investors.

    Nous Sommes Charlie – Beating The Kobayashi Maru

    In the aftermath of the Charlie Hebdo attacks and related hostage-taking and murder at a Kosher meat market, the Left, the media, and much of the world is pretending they can beat the Kobayashi Maru. There is no gaming the system to defeat this foe. There’s no tiptoeing around terms like “backlash” and “profiling”. This is not about religion, which is made plain by the huge gathering in Paris. It’s about humanity. And humans have to take sides. Failure to choose a side means you have taken the side of those who seek to overthrow civilization and replace it with their brand of tyranny, because unless you oppose them, you will be under their boot.
