President Obama summed up the jihadist killing in Paris asan attack not just on Paris. But rather, he assured us, This is an attack on all of humanity and the universal values we share.
People place flowers and light candles in tribute for the victims of the 13 November Paris attacks at the foot of the statue on Place de la Republique in Paris, France, 14 November 2015. At least 120 people have been killed in a series of attacks in Paris on 13 November, according to French officials. EPA/IAN LANGSDON
But is that assumption true?
Certainly, the president seems as unable to utter the targeted West and Western as he is the targeter radical Islam or jihadist.
Were the suicide bombers and the AK-47 shooters whoslaughtered the innocent in Paris seeking to destroy the ideology of communist China?
The History Of Flag Day.
The Fourth of July was traditionally celebrated as America’s birthday, but the idea of an annual day specifically celebrating the Flag is believed to have first originated in 1885. BJ Cigrand, a schoolteacher, arranged for the pupils in the Fredonia, Wisconsin Public School, District 6, to observe June 14 (the 108th anniversary of the official adoption of The Stars and Stripes) as ‘Flag Birthday’.In numerous magazines and newspaper articles and public addresses over the following years, Cigrand continued to enthusiastically advocate the observance of June 14 as ‘Flag Birthday’, or ‘Flag Day’.
What would Saint Thomas Aquinas say about the Refugee Crisis?
We as Christians are debating among ourselves aboutwhether or not we have a moral duty to receive refugees fleeing Muslim nations.
This article is politically incorrect and says things that might shock you. Please read the entire articleuntil the very last two paragraphs before making a judgment or writingincendiary comments. This might be one of theclearest things you’ve read on the topic, because it draws on virtue ethics ofThomas Aquinas – something generally ignored in our day and age. –Godspeed,Taylor Marshall
David Horowitz, author of the new book Progressive Racism, joined The Glenn Beck Program on Thursday to discuss the book and his firsthand knowledge of the civil rights movement and communism. His parents were literal communists, and he was part of the 1960s underground counter culture. In the early 1970s, he became aware of the evils of communism, socialism and progressivism and has been ringing the alarm bell ever since.
“[David] just woke up about 1973 and said, ‘Holy cow, this is all a lie.’ So he’s been studying what socialism and communism do to American cities. He has facts at his fingertips that will blow your mind,” Glenn said.
“Unfortunately, getting conservatives together is like herding cats,” Horowitz replied. “Conservatives are individualists. They don’t believe they’re changing the world. They’re just trying to preserve . . . where we steward some of the good things. So it’s very difficult.”
What people need to focus on in the first place is that every inner city in America, every killing field — Chicago, Detroit, Baltimore, St. Louis, Washington, DC — every one of them is 100 percent controlled by the Democratic Party and have been for 50 to 100 years. Everything that’s wrong with the inner cities in America, everything that oppresses poor, white, black and Hispanic people mainly — beginning with the schools that fail these kids, they fail to teach them year in and year out because they’re run for the adults and the teacher unions, which are slush funds for the Democratic Party — every one of those things is 100 percent controlled by the Democratic Party.
Horowitz noted Detroit as a specific example, which was the richest per capita city in America in 1961. That’s the year they elected a Democrat mayor.
Over the years, the Democrats, the progressives do what they do — their anti-business policies, anti-white policies. They had racists running it. They had a mayor who was a mayor of the Communist Party, Cohen Young, for 20 years. Detroit finally went bankrupt — $14 billion in debt or something like that. Two-thirds of the population has fled. It looks like a bombed-out city, just utterly destroyed, because it was 100 percent control by the Democratic Party from the ’60s on.
It’s not old-style Democrats or classic liberals that are the problem. It’s progressives.
