Ayotte To Obama: Stop Being PC And Fight Radical Islam | The Daily Caller

Ayotte To Obama: Stop Being PC And Fight Radical Islam | The Daily Caller: "It very much matters, because you have to define your enemy. Here is the problem, I think they should spend less time on being worried about being politically correct, about how we define our enemies and more time on a strategy to defeat them. One of the things we heard consistently this week from the national security experts, including General Keane, was a lack of a strategy. It was very disjointed what’s happening, and what we see is more outgrowth of the extremists in this region.

Political Correctness

Chicago Boyz » Blog Archive » Political Correctness: "It has long been said that American universities are “islands of tyranny in a sea of freedom.”  But it was inevitable that the habits of groupthink and submission to the loudest voices that were inculcated in these institutions would seep out into the broader society and begin to poison political dialog in many contexts–and this process is now well underway.

Tying this post to my last post, Conformity Kills:  if a person spends his college years learning to carefully avoid speaking his mind on all matter of politics, social organization, human nature, relationships between the sexes, and many other subjects–what are the chances that he will be willing to speak him mind in a career context where the stakes are high–even if those stakes involve matters of life and death?

The growth of Islamic terrorism on Obama's watch | PrairiePundit

The growth of Islamic terrorism on Obama's watch | PrairiePundit: "The spike coincides with the president’s feckless efforts in the face of radical Islamists, such as his dithering over the civil war in Syria and piddling response to the threat posed by the Islamic State. The terror threat — diminishing when Mr. Obama was elected — is rising faster than the capacity of security agencies to cope with it, some experts fear.

Society is Eating Itself | The Rio Norte Line

Society is Eating Itself | The Rio Norte Line: "Society is quickly replacing common sense, decency, propriety and self-governance with the arbitrary authority of the state. References to Orwell’s “1984” have unfortunately become all to cliché – but while clichés represent trite and overused concepts, being such does not mean that they are false.

In The Road to Serfdom, F.A. Hayek wrote:

“There is no justification for the widespread belief that, so long as power is conferred by democratic procedure, it cannot be arbitrary; it is not the source of power which prevents it from being arbitrary; to be free from dictatorial qualities, the power must also be limited. A true “dictatorship of the proletariat,” even if democratic in form, if it undertook centrally to direct the economic system, would probably destroy personal freedom as completely as any autocracy has ever done.”

Think on that, America…

Charles Krauthammer | The emerging Iranian empire is a mortal threat to our regional allies - Conservatives4Palin

Charles Krauthammer | The emerging Iranian empire is a mortal threat to our regional allies - Conservatives4Palin: "While Iran’s march toward a nuclear bomb has provoked a major clash between the White House and Congress, Iran’s march toward conventional domination of the Arab world has been largely overlooked. In Washington, that is. The Arabs have noticed. And the pro-American ones, the Gulf Arabs in particular, are deeply worried.

Bobby Jindal on Muslim Americans: ‘That’s Not Immigration,’ It’s ‘Invasion’ | Blazing Cat Fur

Bobby Jindal on Muslim Americans: ‘That’s Not Immigration,’ It’s ‘Invasion’ | Blazing Cat Fur: "Jindal repeated his comments about “no-go zones” in which Muslims are trying to impose Sharia law during the Monday interview, telling those who would do the same here, “If you don’t want to be an American, don’t come to America… If we’re not careful the same no-go zones you’re seeing now in Europe will come to America.”

“They want to use our freedoms to undermine that freedom in the first place,” Jindal said later of Muslim immigrants. “This is a place where you have freedom of self-determination, freedom of religious liberty, freedom of speech. This is an amazing place and we’re a majority Christian country. We’re a Judeo-Christian heritage, but we don’t discriminate against those that have no beliefs and or have different beliefs”…

The First Amendment is Dead | Truth Revolt

Ben Shapiro: The First Amendment is Dead | Truth Revolt: "Freedom from government-established religion was designed to stop government from encroaching on free exercise – the idea was that if you had an established church, that would end in discrimination against other churches. But we do have an established church: the church of secularism. And it is discriminating.

About the only part of the First Amendment left standing is our freedom to assemble and petition the government for redress of grievances. But fortunately, thanks to our surrender of all our other First Amendment rights, the government always has an easy answer: no.

But at least we’re sensitive. If we all say just the things the government allows us to say, and practice religion in just the way the government wants us to practice, and report just what the government wants us to report, we’ll be fine. "

But century-long climate modeling is still perfect

Sense of Events: But century-long climate modeling is still perfect: "The National Weather Service says it must evaluate its computer modeling after its blown forecast for the big storm in the Northeast.

But don't worry, the computer models used to forecast the climate over the entire Earth for periods of a century or more are flawless and without error.

San Fran. Archbishop: Nancy Pelosi 'Not a Catholic in Good Conscience' | Truth Revolt

San Fran. Archbishop: Nancy Pelosi 'Not a Catholic in Good Conscience' | Truth Revolt: ""It is a scientific fact that human life begins at conception," he said. "This has been established in medical science for over 100 years. Catholic moral teaching acknowledges this scientific fact, and has always affirmed the grave moral evil of taking an innocent human life.”

“This has been the consistent teaching of the Church from the very beginning, a teaching already discernible in the natural moral law, and so a teaching from which no Catholic can dissent in good conscience,” he added

“It is the obligation of pastors of souls to reach out to their people who have difficulty understanding and accepting such important teachings of the Church in order to extend to them true pastoral care and, where appropriate, to establish a regular dialogue,” he concluded. “This is something I have always striven to do in the various ministries I have exercised as a priest and bishop, including now as the Archbishop of San Francisco. I ask for people’s prayers for success as I continue to strive to do this."
