Think of the Keystone XL pipeline as an IQ test for greens.

As environmental disasters go, the explosion Saturday of a runaway train that destroyed much of the Quebec town of Lac-Mégantic, about 20 miles from the Maine border, will probably go down the memory hole.

It lacks the correct moral and contains an inconvenient truth.

Not that the disaster lacks the usual ingredients of such a moral. The derailed 72-car train belonged to a subsidiary of Illinois-based multinational Rail World, whose self-declared aim is to “promote rail industry privatization.” The train was carrying North Dakota shale oil (likely extracted by fracking) to the massive Irving Oil refinery in the port city of Saint John, to be shipped to the global market. At least five people were killed in the blast (a number that’s likely to rise) and 1,000 people were forced to evacuate. Quebec’s environment minister reports that some 100,000 liters (26,000 gallons) of crude have spilled into the Chaudière River, meaning it could reach Quebec City and the St. Lawrence River before too long.

Environmentalists should be howling. But this brings us to the inconvenient truth.

The reason oil is moved on trains from places like North Dakota and Alberta is because there aren’t enough pipelines to carry it. The provincial governments of Alberta and New Brunswick are talking about building a pipeline to cover the 3,000-odd mile distance. But last month President Obama put the future of the Keystone XL pipeline again in doubt, telling a Georgetown University audience “our national interest will be served only if this project does not significantly exacerbate the problem of carbon pollution.”

JED BABBIN: OBAMA’S MORSI MISSION The Egyptian coup isn’t a rebellion against Islamism. It’s a coup against incompetence and starvation. Those who say it’s a blow to radical Islam are comprehensively wrong. The Wednesday coup that overthrew Mohamed Morsi’s Egyptian regime is of considerable significance, but not of the kind that has been lavished on it by the media. […]

DAVID “SPENGLER” GOLDMAN: ISLAM’S CIVIL WAR MOVES TO EGYPT The vicious crosswind ripping through Egyptian politics comes from the great Sunni-Shi’ite civil war now enveloping the Muslim world from the Hindu Kush to the Mediterranean.

Israeli Christian Loves Israel, Tells Arab MK to Mind her own Business:Yori Yanover

Rajada Jaraisi is a young Christian woman from Nazareth who’s about to enlist in the IDF. As member of the Christian Community Forum, supports her friends to also enlist in the army. Recently there has been quite a storm inside the non-Jewish population of Israel, when it was discovered that a priest named Father Gabriel and a group known as the Christian Officers Forum are encouraging their community youths to serve in the IDF or join the national Service, Rajada decided to write MK Hanin Zoabi, possibly the most fervently anti-Zionist Member of Knesset, and share her ideas on this matter.

We thank Israeli reporter Yishai Friedman for his recently reported the story.

Rejada’s letter has the entire story of the changes many your Christians living in Israel have been undergoing. It may also throw some light on the great fear of the anti-Israeli MKs of this new spirit among these youths, of going hand-in-hand with Israeli society and the Jewish people, at the expense of their ties with a growing portion of the Arab (meaning Muslim) society.

Simply stated, Rejada is asking MK Zoabi not to speak for her nor for other Christian youths.


NEW YORK, July 8, 2013— If you were wondering what Jennifer Lopez did this summer, here is the scoop. She was entertaining the glorious leader of Turkmenistan.

Thereby she answered the following question: What would you do for a million dollars?

We are only talking price.

In fact, if the reports are true, she got even more than that after she volunteered to belt out a Marilyn Monroe styled “Happy Birthday” number to the glorious leader whose name it is impossible to spell or pronounce, so let’s just call him Glorious Leader. He hates cats and dogs. Most of his own people are in jail or waiting to be jailed.

Even the United Nations, which adores cruel dictators, can not find a good word to say about him.

Let’s try spelling his name if only to say we tried. Here goes: Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedow.

Do not try that at home.

So on Saturday, June 29, what was J. Lo doing in a place like Turkmenistan, serenading a man like that? This is exactly what the world wants to know. The people who are paid to apologize for her only say that she did not know how bad it was in Turkmenistan. She certainly knew nothing about good old glorious what’s-his-name.

Plus, if you are J.Lo and you choose to avoid tyrannical dictatorships, that would deny you more than half the known world. A girl has to sing,

Given Turkmenistan’s atrocious record on human rights, where was Alice Walker to stop J.Lo from going ahead? What a strange silence from a “human rights” activist who tried to stop Alicia Keys from performing in Tel Aviv, and who, apparently, can find no fault in any country except Israel, where civil liberties are valued and protected.

The ObamaCare Setback? — on The Glazov Gang

This week’s Glazov Gang had the honor of being joined by Tiffany Gabbay, National Development Director for the David Horowitz Freedom Center, Dwight Schultz, a Hollywood actor, and Jennifer Serrano, the Newest California PolitiChick.

The Gang members gathered to discuss The ObamaCare Setback? The dialogue occurred in Part II (starting at the 9:30 mark) and the guests dissected why Obama postponed ObamaCare’s employment-extermination power until after the midterm-elections.

In Part I, the Gang focused on Bye Bye Morsi and Zimmerman on Trial.

NY Jets Player Speaks at Extreme Anti-Israel Conference Posted By Joe Kaufman Oday Aboushi has been touted as being the first Palestinian-American player in the National Football League (NFL), but his radical behavior since being drafted by the New York Jets less than three months ago could get him sent home early. His latest infraction was made as he gave a speech at a radical Muslim […]


“Nonetheless, what happened should be seen as a tragedy involving two well-meaning individuals who acted without fully appreciating the possible consequences of their actions. It should not be seen as an acting out of the nation’s melodrama on race. That is reserved for the crowds of spectators who have clamored for a verdict before the trial and distorted the facts but who, in a more healthy time, would have left the wheels of justice to turn on their own.”

From the moment the Trayvon Martin shooting rose to the national spotlight, the story became entangled in the nation’s diseased dialogue on race. Racial arsonists like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson descended on the scene at the head of the left-wing lynch mob to force a verdict of guilty on Zimmerman because he was allegedly white. Without the benefit of evidence, George Zimmerman became a caricature of everything lynchers like Sharpton and Jackson claim America to be — hateful, bigoted and indifferent to the loss of African-American life.

Thus, provoked by years of race-baiting from the left, many conservatives have responded in kind, indulging in a parallel demonization campaign of Trayvon Martin designed as a protest against past injustices by civil rights racists against whites (think no further than the destruction of Paula Deen and the acquittal of O.J. Simpson). In an effort to right decades of racial wrongs, many conservatives have hastily embraced caricatures of Trayvon Martin, painting him as a vicious street thug who deserved his fate. Quite apart from the merits of the legal case, this unseemly effort shows the power of the racist left over the mind of the nation. A look at how this works will hopefully serve as a corrective.

One prominent example of anti-Martin slander is a chain email currently being circulated on the Internet. The photo that corresponds to the text is visible above:

Do you know who this is?

It is Little Trayvon Martin…! At 17 yrs of age.

For those of us who thought we were well informed and weren’t…..quite the reality check. That old adage applies here: “there are two sides to every story.”

We don’t always get the truth from the media. One of my favorite rants – the liberal controlled media, television news, newspapers, magazines, radio; all continue to show 12 year old Trayvon; NOT 17 year old Trayvon.

In fact, there are plenty of 17-year-old pictures of Trayvon available but this one (above) is not one of them. It is a photo of Jayceon Terrell Taylor, also known as “The Game,” a 32-year-old rapper from Compton, CA. Yes, Trayvon had tattoos but they didn’t look anything like this. There were two of them. One was a tattoo on his chest of two praying hands with pearls and the names of his grandmother and great-grandmother. The other was a tattoo on his wrist of his mother’s name.
