Does a reduction of American strength in the Middle East equal stability in the region? Undoubtedly, the answer is no. But it is the pipe dream of the American Left and their chosen son, Barack Obama. Continue Reading
This marks the 40-year anniversary of the 1972 Munich kidnappings which resulted in 11 Israeli coaches and athletes being murdered by Palestinian terrorists. Although tribute was paid to the victims of the 2005 terrorist attacks in London, there was no similar ceremony for the fallen Israelis last night. Despite repeated pleas from politicians and private citizens alike, the International Olympic Committee refused to work some type of tribute into the games. A small memorial ceremony will be held on August 6, but that’s not enough. Billions of people were watching last night’s opening festivities. The IOC should have taken the time to honor our friends. They did not and it was shameful.
The Israeli people must know that as Americans, we support them and we honor their loss – especially after last night’s debacle. We can’t speak for the rest of the spineless world community, but the United States stands with you.
As we watch this year’s games, it is imperative to remember those who lost their lives needlessly in 1972. We must not forget why they lost their lives and why Israelis, a long with the greater Jewish community, continue to be persecuted the world over.
Israel, your friends are with you.
Friday night’s opening ceremony for the Olympic Games left me agape and wondering what in the world I was witnessing. The only thing I could picture was someone watching the proceedings while tripping on acid. Maybe then the whole production would have made sense. The New York Times described last night in London as “a wild jumble of the celebratory and the fanciful; the conventional and the eccentric; and the frankly off-the-wall.” The Times went further: “Britain presented itself to the world Friday night as something it has often struggled to express even to itself: a nation secure in its own post-empire identity, whatever that actually is.” Continue Reading
Earlier this month, Alabama became the first state to formally adopt legislation (S.B. 477) that bans government involvement with what has come to be known as “Agenda 21″. Well, so what? What’s “Agenda 21″? According to the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs – Division for Sustainable Development – it’s “a comprehensive plan of action to be taken globally, nationally and locally by organizations of the United Nations System, Governments, and Major Groups in every area in which human impacts on the environment.” By the way, you read that right – bad grammar and all. Now, as a freedom-loving, small government, Constitutionalist – this should make your stomach churn. If you’re a deer-in-the-headlights enviro-statist, you probably just had an orgasm.

For those of you who believe that global unrest is key to reshaping the political, social and economic structures in Europe, the U.S. and elsewhere – you are mistaken. Raging against the “machine” is not only a misguided philosophy, it’s idiotic. Capitalism and free markets are not the reason the world is facing the problems it is today. Crony capitalism is what ails the world – a long with a host of accomplices. Chief among them are big, bloated governments here in the U.S. and across the pond. Continue Reading
From the New York Daily News:
Swiss newspaper Tages-Anzeiger reports that a woman starved to death after embarking on a spiritual diet that required her to stop eating or drinking and live off sunlight alone.
The Zurich newspaper reported Wednesday that the unnamed Swiss woman in her fifties decided to follow the radical fast in 2010 after viewing an Austrian documentary about an Indian guru who claims to have lived this way for 70 years.
Tages-Anzeiger says there have been similar cases of self-starvation in Germany, Britain and Australia.
The prosecutors’ office in the Swiss canton (state) of Aargau confirmed Wednesday that the woman died in January 2011 in the town of Wolfhalden in eastern Switzerland.
