The Republic of India is the largest democracy on the planet and rightfully proud of her place on the world stage. Already proving to be an economic powerhouse, those who want to see their nation progress into the 21st century are too often seeing their fellow citizens and government revert back to its ancient and technically illegal caste system.
Despite almost three times as many British Muslims serve in the ranks of ISIS than Her Majesty’s Armed Forces, the central government’s nation-wide plan to de-radicalize homegrown Islamic jihadists is “bursting at the seams” and apparently on the verge of falling apart. As reported by the Breitbart.com news portal and the Express newspaper (of London, Great Britain) both on Aug. 29, 2015, the island nation’s officially titled “Channel programme” is collapsing under its own weight.
The question starting to be asked is if something popularly known as micro-aggression is now legitimizing thin-skinned and perpetually offended individuals to cry foul at every imagined slight. In a nutshell, proponent of the micro-aggression theory believe that without even realizing it, certain thoughts, words, and deeds are evidence of someone’s inner bigot. However, critics of such claim that any given individual or group with a grievance can find an insult in even the most innocuous statement said to them or even in their mere presence.
As any language nerd will tell you, the likes of Latin and Sanskrit are dead. However, modern languages are live, and like everything else that’s alive, modern tongues often change, morph and mutate. Case in point; the words faggot (fagot) and fag. Both words still used in common conversation in certain English-speaking nations, yet they are now often looked upon as not only a derogatory word in reference to homosexuals, but the British government now considers the mere utterance of the words in a negative connotation to be a provocation of “terrorist acts” as reported by the Breitbart.com news portal and also ABC Online (Australian Broadcasting Corporation), both on Aug. 27, 2015.
News on the live broadcast shooting in Roanoke, Va., is still breaking by the moment. Yet as of press time, what is known is that two journalists with WDBJ television in southwest Virginia are dead, a member of the local chamber of commerce is shot in the back, and the apparent gunman was a former TV station employee who claimed racism was behind his recent dismissal.
As reported by Fox10 of Mobile, Ala., and also by Britain’s The Guardian and the Daily Mail, all on Aug. 26, 2015, field reporter Alison Parker, 24, and cameraman Adam Ward, 27, died at the scene while covering economic growth in at scenic Smith Mountain Lake developments. As the duo was interviewing Vicki Gardner, head of the Smith Mountain Lake Regional Chamber of Commerce, shots were heard from someone off camera.
It’s not every day that someone just so happens to stumble upon a bag o’ weapons in a city park. But that’s exactly what would-be terrorist Ayoub el-Khazzani claims happened prior to his foiled jihadist attack. Either wildly coincidental or just taken beyond absurd, Khazzani’s father is publicly stating that his son is a “good boy” and if the fault belongs anywhere, it lays directly at the feet of certain European nations for failing to find him a job.
As reported by the Breitbart.com news portal on Aug. 24, 2015, and also by the British newspaper the Daily Mail on Aug. 23, 2015, the wannabe terrorist’s father, Mohamed al-Khazzani, his boy is no killer. In fact, young Ayoub is actually a “good boy” who would “never want to kill anyone.”
The eye (rolls) have it…
If the National Lampoon series of “Vacation” movies proved to the world, what is seen by outsiders as a comedy is in reality a tragedy for those on the inside. Case in point; media outlets on both sides of the proverbial pond have noticed a rather glum looking La Famiglia di Obama returning home from a two-week long, multi-million dollar, heavily taxpayer paid for Cape Cod summer vacation.
As reported by the new media American Thinker news portal and also by London, England’s the Daily Mail, both on Aug. 24, 2015, the facial expressions from the First Family bring to mind the old adage of “a picture’s worth a thousand words.” As parents everywhere already know, teens can sometimes be a bit trying, even if their home, education, and summer break are all paid by someone else.
Sometimes Islamic jihadists just aren’t content with slitting the throats of bound and helpless Egyptian Christian captives. To emphasize they put the terror in terrorism, there have been cases of caged prisoners but to death by burning them alive. The litany of über-violent slaughter for the sake of slaughter doesn’t end there. Regarding the ISIS terror organization’s long term plan to establish a world-wide caliphate based on Islamic Shari’s Law, gang rape, sexual slavery, and throwing people off of rooftops are the figurative tip of the terror-inducing iceberg.

It’s never a good idea to anger an American Leatherneck. It’s even worse to raise the ire of a group of Teufelhunden. The epitome of stupid is to anger multiple Marines while threatening women and children.
Americans love to flaunt to the world whenever they exercise their Constitutional rights. Be it an “I Voted” lapel sticker handed out on election day, to bumper stickers that advocate numerous causes, Yankee Doodle Dandies have the innate desire to put on display the fruits of their God-given rights. One exception to the rule very well could be the actions of the Louisiana governor in response to pro-abortion marchers outside the Baton Rouge Executive Mansion.
As reported by Austin Ruse of the Breitbart.com news portal on Aug. 20, 2015, GOP presidential hopeful and Chief Executive of Louisiana, Gov. Bobby Jindal has two-fold raised the ire of Bayou State pro-abortion activists by initially cancelling the state’s Medicare contract with Planned Parenthood, then ordered the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals to launch an investigation into Planned Parenthood. As reported, Jindal “requested Inspector General Stephen Street to initiate a joint investigation with the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals to determine whether Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast is engaged in the illegal harvesting and trafficking of human body parts.”
With Jindal the first governor to make such moves in the wake of the Center for Medical Progress’s (CMP) undercover expose of officials from Planned Parenthood offering up for sale various vital organs recently harvested from the bodies of freshly aborted fetuses (eyes, lungs, hearts, livers, and brains) the pro-abortion movement decided to take their protest up close and personal to Jindal and his family by marching on the Executive Mansion in the state capital. Possibly as a move to let not only the marchers, but also the world in general know what the end product of the abortion procedure is, Jindal ordered the various CMP videos to be played on an extra large movie screen with accompanying suitable speakers.
Not only has Jindal ordered the playing of the videos, he’s ordered them to be played on a continual loop. The most recent of the videos released retell of a former “procurement technician” who was instructed at a Planned Parenthood facility to cut through the face of a “nearly fully developed baby boy” in order to harvest the brain. Reportedly, the supposedly aborted fetus still had a heartbeat up to the point of his dissection.
This isn’t the first time Jindal has set the precedence for the nation’s governors. On the heels of the Knoxville, Tennessee, Islamic jihadist killing of 4 unarmed Marines and one similarly unarmed sailor at a Marine Corps Reserve Center, acting as the state’s Commander-in-Chief of the Louisiana National Guard (LANG), Jindal ordered all LANG recruiters and Drill Center personnel to arm themselves against possible future attacks.
Call them anchor babies who gained American citizenship through fraud and deception, or they could be referred to as the recipients of birthright citizenship as guaranteed by the 14th Amendment of the US Constitution. Call them what you like, but one of the few certainties regarding the children of illegal aliens born on US soil is that both the left leaning and the right leaning media has come out swinging.
With a rapidly approaching fiftieth anniversary of the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) taking the abortion question away from the 55 state and territorial governments, the battle pro and con still rages on as contentiously as it did in the early 1970s. As when the SCOTUS initially federalized purposeful termination of pregnancy, the question of abortion is still front and center as one of the prime topics in presidential politics today.
As the old saying goes, it’s better late than never. That particular adage may apply to the handful of conservative-leaning national news outlets picking up on Carly Fiorina’s 2001 speech to Hewlett-Packard in which she claimed the Islamic World from the centuries spanning 800 – 1600 was “a civilization that was the greatest in the world.”
The plight of Marine Corps Major Jason Brezler could be described at a minimum as everything old is new again. However, on the other side of the coin, the case of Major Brezler could also be one of the premier cases of political hypocrisy in the history of the American Republic. As reported by the Daily Caller on Aug. 15, 2015, the Marine Reserve officer is still fighting his dismissal from the Corps for sending via his private email account classified information, which in the broadest of terms, is the same situation presidential contender Hillary Clinton finds herself in.
Long considered by many on the right side of the aisle as essentially nothing more than the Ministry of Propaganda for the Democratic Party, the same conservatives may have to re-think their take on some of the personalities in establishment media. As the reporters of The Washington Free Beacon (WFB) have penned in a number of different articles, a slew of talking heads at the MSNBC, CNN and NBC News networks are saying things about Democratic front runner Hillary Clinton that very possibly could be mistaken for Republican Party talking points.
As reporter Josh Voorhees of Slate Magazine penned on Aug. 14, 2015, Vice President Joe Biden is taking time out of his South Carolina vacation to meet with “allies and advisors” regarding a possible challenge to the presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. However, Voorhees passed on partisan politics by pointing out the reality of the situation in his party.
Despite the inaugural Republican candidates presidential debate having come and gone slightly more than a week ago, the question is now starting to be asked if the precedence set at the first GOP debate will be resurrected for their opposites on the Democratic Party side. Yea or nay, it’ll be quite some time before we find out. As the Boston Globe cited on Aug. 12, 2015, the first Democratic debate won’t even happen until sometime in mid-October.
If Gabriel Sherman’s investigative report is to be believed, Fox News didn’t just blink first, but in the parlance of prison yards everywhere, Fox just got punked out by Donald Trump. Love him, hate him, or indifferent towards him, Trump has struck a nerve with more than a few voters. As noted by the Daily Intelligencer’s Gabriel Sherman, it turns out that The Donald also has the ability to make the head honcho of the number one news network actually scramble for much needed damage control.
The notion of honor killing under Islam’s strict Sharia Law may not strike most Westerners as not only an alien concept, but often downright cruel and coldblooded. Case in point would be the death of a young woman in the Middle East whose father physically stopped rescuers from saving his daughter’s life for fear of “strange men” touching her, thereby dishonoring the family’s good name.
Former CEO and Chairwoman of the Board of Hewlett-Packard, Carly Fiorina, may still be hearing the fading echoes of the praise heaped upon her by network pundits and GOP party insiders after her being informally declared the winner of the lower-tier Republican candidates debate last Aug. 6, 2015. In the wake of the nationally televised debate, the gushing of television personalities and happily spilled ink from establishment Republican stalwarts certainly gave the impression that Fiorina has become the new darling of the conservative movement.
In what very well could have been mistaken as either satire or a line from the seventh century, a Southeast Asian Islamic mufti has warned his fellow government officials to that when it comes to Islam, intellect and logic have no place in the conversation.
As reported by the Malaysian Insider news portal on Aug. 7, 2015, and also by Front Page magazine on Aug. 6, 2015, Dr. Tan Sri Harussani Zakaria cautioned other public servants in the Malaysian state of Perak to steer clear of reason for fear of inviting Beelzebub into their midst.
With the first Republican Party debate dominating the American headlines, little ink has been spilled regarding the continual bestial slaughter taking place in length and breadth of the Muslim World in the name of Islamic Jihad. As reported by the Reuters UK news service on Aug. 7, 2015, al-Qaida allied Jihaddists in the northwest African nation of Mali launched an attack on a hotel used as United Nations base of operations, killing five and taking three Russian pilots hostage.
By any measurable standard, GySgt Peter Boby personifies the old Marine Corps recruiting slogan “We Still Build ‘Em Like We Use To”. Seen as a rising star in the Corps, not only is Boby selected for promotion to Master Sergeant, he’s also one of the instrumental players in the re-vamping of the seemingly super-human physical fitness training one must meet to even attend training for the Marine Raiders (formerly, the USMC Special Operations Command).
Yet the Leatherneck who’s been decorated for personal valor on the battlefield has just been arrested in Washington, DC for having his personally owned pistol in the trunk of his car.
