Having consulted specialists on the treaty power, the author at the fact-checking site Politifact rates the letter "mostly true." Why the "mostly"? Possibly this merely reflects the desire of that author not to completely embarrass those so many vocal critics who were so quck to denounce as unheard-of, ...Read More...

I first posted this remarkable interview with the Shi'a cleric (and undeclared freethinker) and former Iraqi MP Ayad Jamal Al-Din, after it appeared at the samaritan site of Memritv.org on October 20, 2014. Now that John Brennan, the man most responsible for telling Obama what to do about Muslim ...Read More...

This is from September 1, 2011. As an expression of idiocy, it not only does not date, but acquires greater significance, expresses idiocy that has become more obvious with the passage of time. And I had forgotten about, but was glad to re-read, my cruel comment. "Don't make personal remarks" some ...Read More...

The federal government deserves credit for unveiling its plans for regeneration of Canada’s long-shrinking navy. Seven years have passed, inexplicably and expensively in terms of ultimate cost, since the prime minister announced that eight Arctic off-shore patrol ships with ice-breaking capacity would ...Read More...

A Moroccan who had been expelled from Italy before, but managed to sneak back in through Lampedusa, slit the throat of  a boy who happened to pass him on the street ("What are you doing -- looking at me?" said the Moroccan before slitting the boy's throat). The story will probably never make it into ...Read More...

From the Wikipedia entry on Shi'a Islam in Saudi Arabia: In 1802, the Saud-Wahhabi alliance waged jihad (or at least qital, i.e. war) on the Shia holy city of Karbala. There, according to a Wahhabi chronicler `Uthman b. `Abdullah b. Bishr: Muslims [Wahhabis referred to themselves as Muslims, not ...Read More...

In a well-ordered society, this incitement to hate and murder should be punishable by prison or, even better, the al-wahwahs of this world would be stripped of their obtained-under-false-pretenses Western citizenship (if they have obtained it), and deported to their Muslim lands of origin. And there ...Read More...

Several school parties were being shown round, which can only be a good thing. These little girls are examining one ...Read More...

Here. To Shi'a the Sunnis who despise Shi'a are "Takfiris." To Sunnis the Shi'a who despise Sunnis, or even those who don't despise them, are "Rafidite dogs." For a few days, or possibly a few weeks, you willl hear constantly that "it's all over but the mopping up." And then it will be over. ...Read More...

It is amazing to hear all these discussions, so often so inaccurate in their description of that supposedly "outrageous" and "unheard-of" Letter From The 47 Nearly-Traitorous Senators, without any mention of the Constitution, that is of Article II Section 2. Article II Section 2 requires the Executive ...Read More...

“Our age” wrote Julien Benda in 1927 in La Trahison des clercs “is indeed the age of the intellectual organization of political hatreds.”  The newest example of this organized hatred is the Conference to be held in the UK between April 17 and 19, 2015 under the auspices of the Southampton Law School. ...Read More...
