Charlie – American Style

by ward on January 8, 2015

Charlie Hebdo editor Stephane Charbonnier once said “I’d rather die standing than live kneeling.”

Americans look to New Hampshire: “Live Free or Die”

Monsieur Charbonnier and your collegues, we’d have welcomed you here in America. We honor your memory and your fortitude, and despise your enemies.

And for all France, who turned out to honor you – we are with you, in your hour of mourning, and in your determination that the light of freedom shall continue to light La Belle France.

Winston Churchill on Islam and Christianity

by ward on December 31, 2014

About 1900 Winston Churchill wrote about Islam:

“Indeed it is evident that Christianity, however degraded and distorted by cruelty and intolerance, must always exert a modifying influence on men’s passions, and protect them from the more violent forms of fanatical fever, as we are protected from smallpox by vaccinations. But the Mohammaden religion increases, instead of lessening, the fury of intolerance. It was originally propagated by the sword, and ever since its votaries have been subject, above all the peoples of all other creeds, to this form of madness.”

 

From observations of current events, it would appear to be self-evident that Churchill was absolutely correct.

Journalism At It’s Best

December 11, 2014

And no, it’s not Fox, or CNN, or the Gray Lady, or ABC, or any of the Big Media. Nor is it Breitbart, or Michelle Malkin, or Little Green Footballs. It hasn’t been mentioned on GMA, Hannity, or Limbaugh. It’s the best kind of Journalism, and it was committed by a bunch of high school [...]

Ferguson Aftermath

November 26, 2014

Hello, Ferguson! Now that you’ve had your riots, let me predict the future. The “organizers” and “activists” who are from somewhere else, will go back to wherever they came from, leaving YOU to deal with… …Burned out and looted stores, whose owners will probably think at least twice about rebuilding and reopening.  After all, once [...]
