Watch out Democrats running for office in 2016. Don’t leave the denunciation of rape for God up to Fox News and the Tea Party haters

A tipping point is being inexorably reached. Sometimes reality trumps ideals. Take the nice liberal fiction that the only problem between the rest of us and radical Islam is a series of misunderstandings or bad Western actors. Consider just one day's (today's) New York Times headlines. ISIS Enshrines a Theology of Rape, ISIS Affiliate in Egypt Says It Has Beheaded Croatian Prisoner and  Nigeria: Boko Haram Is Said to Have a New Leader.Here's how the sweeping and terrifying ISIS Enshrines a Th … [Read more...]

Jeb Bush You Are a Liar

 (Photo AP)According to the Los Angeles Times, Jeb Bush just blamed President Obama and Hillary Clinton for the decline, war and mess in Iraq.

Camille Paglia (Credit: Michael Lionstar) Camille Paglia takes on Jon Stewart, Trump, Sanders: “Liberals think of themselves as very open-minded, but that’s simply not true!” You’re an atheist, and yet I don’t ever see you sneer at religion in the way that the very aggressive atheist class right now often will. What do you make of Richard Dawkins, Sam Harris, Christopher Hitchens and the religion critics who seem not to have respect for religions for faith? I regard them as adolescents.

Why Is the Mainstream Media Running Away From Max Blumenthal’s New Book About Israel?

"Is it possible for right-wingers and AIPAC adherents to speak about his work without either blowing a carotid artery; or attacking him personally, huffing and puffing about his being "anti-Semitic," a self-loathing Jew, an anti-Israeli propagandist, and a bullying anti-Zionist?

Now in a book and the interview below former evangelical and captive to the purity movement, author Sara Moslener, has movingly examined both the politics and the personal price extracted from those--like herself-- who are and were most touched by this corrosive (and odd if not perverse) sex/morality/hard right religious "purity" movement.The human price in … [Read more...]
