Now and again a cartoonist hits the nail on the head and draws something that touches on many levels of meaning.
This one from Yaakov Kirschen, whom you can find at http://drybones.com/, is absolutely excellent.
You will recall that a brave Iranian woman protested against the sexist, ...Read More...

I set forty-two questions for you to ponder over. I chose to set forty-two questions so that I could remind you of an interesting Christmas fact about the number forty-two: to wit, there are forty-two generations given in the Gospel of Matthew's version of the genealogy of Jesus. That is to say, ...Read More...

I’ll post all the answers in a few hours time.
All together now: ‘Enjoy’.

God’s message of love is for everyone, and there is no more appropriate a time to celebrate that fact than on the day we Christians have set aside to remember that Jesus Christ was born from a woman as a mortal man in order to give us that message and to be the full, perfect and complete sacrifice to ...Read More...

HAPPY NEW YEAR.
Yes, we’re well into Advent and I’m a little behind with that greeting, but better late than not at all.
Let’s move on. I have a question for all of you. I mean this question very, very seriously and I really would like all of you to answer it and, if you have the time, give me ...Read More...

Have you ever wondered exactly how those so-called progressives really act? How they exercise their sense of entitlement? How they spend our money? How they look after one another using our money?
Well here are two examples from the hundreds of thousands, the millions, out there.
First, let’s ...Read More...

"...the most decorated woman gymnast in Rio is an adopted, home-educated, Roman Catholic who prays the rosary and relies on God and His blessed Mother to help make her the best person and athlete she can be." (The Remnant)

Given the events happening in Mohammedan occupied Anatolia and Thrace tonight one must ask the question “Have the Turkish military left it too late?”

It’s Independence Day – Will Britain Vote For It?
Independence Day, Thursday 23rd June, 2016.
Should get the boot in favour of this:

Over at forbes.com George Soros is, once again (sigh), reported as having said something spectacularly stupid. Here it is:

Over at www.care2.com Mindy Townsend, in my opinion, tells a lie – a great big whopper of a lie – but she slips it into her text so deftly that it will settle into the consciousness of many of her readers like a subliminal message in a movie or a TV programme is supposed to do. She lied by tacking an ...Read More...

There are many people who keep on telling us that ISIS has nothing to do with Mohammedanism. That is a lie and they make that statement with no evidence to support their untruthful utterance. In actual fact, all the evidence without exception – let me repeat that with greater emphasis on one word: ALL ...Read More...

In this article Rebecca talked about the rape and paedophile assault culture in the Islamic State and focussed on the plight of the Yezidis in particular. There is more, much more, that needs to be said about the Yezidi people and what is happening to them still. I also want to tell you about how they ...Read More...

As many of you will have noted from Esme’s report here, earlier today, there is something very rotten in the Labour party in the U.K. today. I’d just like to add my two pennyworth to that report.
Also, many of you will be aware from that same report that the U.K. is going through one of its regular ...Read More...

Leo McKinstry, a well-known British journalist and author, in the 'Express' (a popular U.K. ‘red-top’ newspaper) gets it, and isn't afraid to say it, either:
From the Express at this page:
“Political class in denial over cause of jihadist threat, says Leo McKinstry”

It has become patently obvious that the French and the Mohammedans who also happen to live in France cannot live peaceably together. Obviously, what is required is a two state solution – that is to say that after all the necessary UN sponsored negotiations, that the currently existing political unit ...Read More...
