    Allegations without substance. If you claim lies, state them and why that’s what they are. You cite documents produced by historians. What documents, what historians? Name them or they are next to impossible to find. Beck shows his sources. Show yours. Your posts have zero credibility otherwise.

    Glenn made the comment that Sykes-Picot was to “protect trade routes.” It goes far deeper than that. The Ottoman empire had repeatedly invaded western Europe for hundreds of years. They even reached the gates of Vienna, only to be defeated by an army led by Polish king Jan Sobieski. That battle started on 9/11/1683. Does any part of that date ring a bell? It’s no wonder that Britain and France did not want a resurrection of the Ottoman empire or caliphate in any form. Neither should we.

    Maybe some Dimocrats flew over to vote there.

    The Constitution prohibits CONGRESS from making laws that favor or deny any particular religion. It says nothing about state governments or institutions. The article starts out “Congress shall make no law….” Claiming that a public school team having a chaplain is unconstitutional is ludicrous. Anyone making such a claim should be laughed out of the room.

    This will probably end up with a Darwin Award.

    Anyone wishing to learn about the whitewashing of communism should read “American Betrayal” by Diana West. The roots go back to one of our worst presidents, FDR, who started us on the path of moral equivalence by recognizing the Soviet government in 1933 (he also started our move toward socialism with the creation of Social Security). FDR believed the US and USSR would become more like each other, thus accepted them as allies against the Nazis even though we could have disrupted the Soviet government at the end of WWII. West’s book documents in great detail communist influence on the US during most of the 20th century.

    What happened to Perry is an example of lawless Dimocrats using the courts to implement Alinsky’s rules. It personalizes, tries to polarize, and the legal system certainly freezes and distracts the target.

    I’m surprised that Dawkins didn’t make an evolutionary argument about this. Our pre-history ancestors lived in small groups with a strong leader. Our brains evolved to accept this; you might say it’s in our DNA. In today’s world there are those who believe they should be the strong leaders. These are the extremists. Moderates are the ones who don’t object. Christianity has pretty well purged itself of the extreme element. Islam needs to get it done too. We need to help them do it.

    It’s not about religion, it’s about control. Religion is just an excuse.

    The 3rd world Marxist in the WH sees Israel as an “oppressor.” When Netanyahu decided to finish off Hamas and refused to declare the unilateral cease fire demanded by the un-president, the restriction on weapon transfers was a predictable consequence. Will Israel start buying weaponry from Russia?

    Interesting that Shapiro mentioned WWII. One could argue (actually, Diana West does so in her fine work of real journalism, “American Betrayal”) that the US began its decline into moral relativism in 1933 when FDR (one of the worst of the 20th century presidents) recognized the Soviet Union as legitimate. Remember that Stalin killed several times as many people as Hitler, yet few put him alongside Hitler as one of the 20th century’s faces of true evil.

    Millions of decisions by millions of people will always trump actions by central planners. When the US had a 90% tax rate, top earners chose to reduce their incomes but get untaxed perks from their companies. Thus their standard of living stayed the same but the government did not get what it expected. In the Soviet bloc where the state ran all businesses and paid low wages people learned to cheat and steal or otherwise find ways to beat the system. That legacy haunts Russia to this day.

    Seems very clear — the influence of Marxism, that everyone should be equal, gives rise to being envious of those who are successful, and perhaps guilt among those who are on the left and successful.

    The fewer bills they pass, the less damage they do. Meanwhile, the un-president keeps digging his party into a deeper hole. Seems like a plan….

    Impeach Holder first. We don’t need his racial bigotry and bias (the Philadelphia black panther case as handled by Holder’s Dept of Injustice), and lawless behavior (held in contempt of Congress) in the role of chief law enforcer. He also likes terrorists, do a search on “holder faln” and see what crawls out from under the rock he should crawl back under.

    I always liked the Southwest Airlines approach, “Please raise your seat backs to the upright and most uncomfortable position…If the oxygen masks drop and you are sitting next to a child or someone acting like a child….

    The un-president will never have a “serious discussion” with anyone who disagrees with him in any way.

  • June 11, 2014 at 7:14am

    Much that DIMocrats say is “not necessarily accurate.”

    Lets keep the language clear. It’s not “federal money,” it’s OUR taxpayer money scarfed up by the federal government and redistributed to others.

    People died, Obama lied
