CNN is apparently willing to include the words “honor killing” and “conservative Afghan” in its news reports but is unwilling to say that the honor killing was mandated by Islamic teachings or even mention that the murderers were Muslims. Instead, the word “conservative” has the effect of comparing such nasty people with the Christian right in America.
The most tragically ironic aspect of this story is that the man who murdered his daughters and tried to cover it up, said that he killed them because they “betrayed kindness.”
This CNN news report is a must-see for the network’s bias. It fits right in line with the network’s history of running interference for Islamists.

Read to the end on this one. This is Sarah Palin doing what she does best, ripping into the establishment:
We have witnessed something very disturbing this week. The Republican establishment which fought Ronald Reagan in the 1970s and which continues to fight the grassroots Tea Party movement today has adopted the tactics of the left in using the media and the politics of personal destruction to attack an opponent.

So, how do the ’60s radicals who control the media, education, and government deal with social issues? They say we must keep prayer and Bibles out of schools. They say we must teach moral relativism, which means no one is qualified to say something is right or wrong. These ’60s radicals seek to make sure a thirteen-year-old can legally have an abortion without parental knowledge or consent.
Fifty million babies have been aborted in America since Roe in 1973. Wacko environmentalists believe that all life, from a puppy to a toad, is equal to human life. Could abortion on demand and extreme environmentalism be contributing factors in our youth’s lack of respect for human life?
ObamaCare promotes death on both ends of the spectrum. It mandates government-funded abortions and government panels authorized to decide whether or not it is fiscally wise to sustain the life of a senior. My grandmother is 100 years old.
Prayer was removed from public schools in 1962. We can all agree that our kids are far better off today because of that decision. Right?
In my six tours across America with the Tea Party Express, I have met numerous families who home-school their children. The difference between public-school and home-schooled children is dramatic. Home-schooled children are poised, happy, respectful, and simply better-educated.

Earlier this week Canada kicked out a Rwandan man accused of helping instigate the genocide in his homeland almost 20 years ago, but if were up to the mandarins at the United Nations, Leon Mugesera would still be on Canadian soil.
Despite being found inadmissible to Canada in 1995 by a Liberal cabinet minister, deemed inadmissible by the Supreme Court in 2005 and having lost all of his appeals, the UN stepped in to protect the accused war criminal.
The international body wanted its decisions to supersede Canadian law and courts, and have their people determine when and if we could boot him back to Kigali.
I think most Canadians would find it ridiculous that the UN, the body that told its peacekeepers to stand by and let the Rwandan genocide happen, would intervene to protect a man accused of instigating the mass slaughter.
This isn’t the first time the UN has tried to take control of Canadian decision-making.
The pages are yellowing, nearly disintegrated. For decades they have lain forgotten, stuffed into crates piled high in the archives of Israel’s Ministry of Justice. No one reads them; no one even shows interest. Even now, nearly sixty years after the painful experiences of loss and flight they recount, they still wait for their stories to be told.
In one, a Jewish woman from Alexandria describes her youth in Egypt:
You’re being manipulated. A well respected, highly influential news source has cast aside all journalistic integrity to shill for the liberal, GOP establishment candidate in this presidential race.
The New York Times, you say? MSNBC? The Washington Post? No. We all gave up on those “progressive” rags a long time ago.
Regrettably, the latest media outlet to assume a decidedly yellow hue during this heated primary cycle is the Drudge Report. It pains me to even write this. Drudge has always been both my first and last internet news stops of the day.
It’s often said, “Never pick a fight with someone who buys ink by the barrel.” Well, Drudge deals in pixels instead of ink, but the same principle applies.
Still, this is a fight worth having.
My question is what is Norway doing today to stop the virulent antisemitism which is a prominent feature of today’s 21st century Norway.

The GOP conservative establishment has the long knives out for Newt Gingrich. Since his win in South Carolina and strong showing in the Florida polls, a number of big-name Republicans have gone on the attack against the former speaker of the House.

On January 19, President Barack Obama’s campaign staff released a video, “America and Israel: An Unbreakable Bond” – a piece rife with half-truths and distortions. As patently false as it seems to anyone with a properly jaundiced eye, it nonetheless requires a response. For one suspects that those American Jews eager to find a reason to vote for Obama may be all too ready to stand convinced of what they are being told.
Recently elected NY Congressman Bob Turner gave an interview in Israel last week, in which he said, “I think American support militarily has been more an investment in our own defense..” It was a refreshingly honest and significant observation that directly applies here.

Last week Palestinian Media Watch revealed that the Mufti Muhammad Hussein, top cleric of the Palestinian Authority, had approvingly quoted a hadith calling for the genocide of Jews. Hussein, who was appointed to his post by PA president Mahmoud Abbas, did so at a ceremony marking the 47th anniversary of the Fatah movement. The moderator at the ceremony chimed in that “Our war with the descendants of the apes and pigs [i.e., Jews] is a war of religion and faith.” As for Mufti Hussein, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu ordered Israel’s attorney-general to investigate him for incitement.

In a refreshing change of pace from Republican candidates taking potshots at each other on the campaign trail, Newt Gingrich put some perspective on the presidential race when he clarified the challenge for the eventual party nominee, and what is at stake. He told a large crowd in Coral Springs, Florida Wednesday that
We need somebody who is a conservative and who can stand up to [President Obama] and debate and who can clearly draw the contrast between the Declaration of Independence and the writings of Saul Alinsky… The centerpiece of this campaign, I believe, is American exceptionalism versus the radicalism of Saul Alinsky.
Gingrich’s attempts to tie Alinsky, the Chicago community organizer and author of the revolutionary handbook Rules for Radicals, to the Chicago community organizer in the White House prompted James Rosen to question this unusual strategy for Fox News online:

Irish actor Liam Neeson says he is thinking about becoming a Muslim after undergoing a spiritual awakening in Turkey.
Neeson, who was born into a Roman Catholic family in Ballymena, Northern Ireland, told the London-based newspaper The Sun that he was impressed by the religious atmosphere in Istanbul while filming a movie in the city.
He said: “The [Islamic] call to prayer happens five times a day, and for the first week, it drives you crazy, and then it just gets into your spirit, and it’s the most beautiful, beautiful thing. There are 4,000 mosques in the city. Some are just stunning, and it really makes me think about becoming a Muslim.”
Neeson is just one of hundreds of thousands of Europeans who are trading their Christian heritage for the supposed exoticism of Islam. The surge in conversions is contributing to the mainstreaming of Islam in Europe and contributing to the Islamization of the continent.

Much of the European Union’s green sustainable development plans are largely based on government controlled land use planning theories rooted in the lebensraum tradition. Literally, lebensraum means “living space.” Lebensraum was originally developed by German geographer Friedrich Ratzel (1844-1904) and then greatly expanded under the banner of National Socialism (1933-1945).
Ratzel is the father of modern political geography which is commonly called geopolitics. He believed history was largely a natural evolutionary development of peoples looking for geographical living space. Ratzel also held that expanding borders reflected the biological health of a nation. The National Socialists adopted Ratzel’s mixing of evolutionary theory, biology, and geopolitics in their own version of lebensraum.
