EDWARD CLINE: A ONE SIDED SUICIDE PACT ****

http://www.familysecuritymatters.org/publications/detail/a-one-sided-suicide-pact Soeren Kern, writing for the Gatestone Institute in his November 16th article, “IslamNeeds a Fair Chance in Germany,” reported a significant development in Germany that portends dire consequences for that benighted nation and for all of Europe: the city of Hamburg signed a “treaty” with organizations representing its Islamic population. The “treaty” features a […]

ANOTHER DISMAL ELECTION: IN JAPAN

http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424127887324352004578132492249786894.html?mod=opinion_newsreel As giant problems in need of urgent solutions go, Japan is a thing of beauty. Its economy contracted by 3.5% on an annual basis from July to September, and slack exports and declining industrial production suggest another recession is coming. Demographic decline is well underway and Tokyo’s fiscal position—with debt roughly twice annual output—appears […]

THE UN’S SNEAK ATTACK ON THE INTERNET: GORDON CROVITZ

http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424127887324352004578136902821852508.html?mod=opinion_newsreel

Letting the Internet be rewired by bureaucrats would be like handing a Stradivarius to a gorilla.

Who runs the Internet? For now, the answer remains no one, or at least no government, which explains the Web’s success as a new technology. But as of next week, unless the U.S. gets serious, the answer could be the United Nations.

Many of the U.N.’s 193 member states oppose the open, uncontrolled nature of the Internet. Its interconnected global networks ignore national boundaries, making it hard for governments to censor or tax. And so, to send the freewheeling digital world back to the state control of the analog era, China, Russia, Iran and Arab countries are trying to hijack a U.N. agency that has nothing to do with the Internet.

For more than a year, these countries have lobbied an agency called the International Telecommunications Union to take over the rules and workings of the Internet. Created in 1865 as the International Telegraph Union, the ITU last drafted a treaty on communications in 1988, before the commercial Internet, when telecommunications meant voice telephone calls via national telephone monopolies.

RICK MORAN: BONNIE PRINCE CHARLES…THE ROYAL DHIMMIWIT FEELS HE’S RUNNING OUT OF TIME

http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2012/11/fairy_prince_waiting_for_his_mum_to_die_thinks_hes_running_out_of_time.html
HERE ARE SOME OF HIS MUTTERINGS ON ISLAM: http://www.meforum.org/356/prince-charles-of-arabia

“Our judgement of Islam has been grossly distorted by taking the extremes to the norm. . . . For example, people in this country frequently argue that the Sharia law of the Islamic world is cruel, barbaric and unjust. Our newspapers, above all, love to peddle those unthinking prejudices. The truth is, of course, different and always more complex. My own understanding is that extremes, like the cutting off of hands, are rarely practised. The guiding principle and spirit of Islamic law, taken straight from the Qur’an, should be those of equity and compassion.

There is much we can learn from that Islamic world view in this respect. There are many ways in which mutual understanding and appreciation can be built. Perhaps, for instance, we could begin by having more Muslim teachers in British schools, or by encouraging exchanges of teachers. Everywhere in the world people want to learn English. But in the West, in turn, we need to be taught by Islamic teachers how to learn with our hearts, as well as our heads.”

Poor Prince Charles. It’s got to be tough waiting around for your mother to die before you can really begin to have fun as a once and future royal. All those really kewl parades and pomp and circumstance and such. And then there’s that great big stipend of cash, courtesy of the British taxpayer, that keeps hearth and home together – as well as feeding the polo ponies and vast retinue of servants.

Waiting around has apparently gotten to Chucky, as this interview in the Telegraph makes clear:

During a visit to Dumfries House, the stately home in East Ayrshire which the Prince helped save for the nation, he joked about his reputation for pursuing projects with notorious vigour but made a poignant reference to his mortality.

He said: “Impatient? Me? What a thing to suggest! Yes of course I am.” He added: “I’ll run out of time soon. I shall have snuffed it if I’m not careful.”

DANIEL GREENFIELD: THE ANTI-DEMOCRATIC PARTY

http://sultanknish.blogspot.com/
In one of the curious ironies of history, the Democratic Party, in its present form, is animated solely by opposition to majority rule; an obsession that it attempts to disguise with insincere attempts at class warfare.
There is nothing that the Democratic Party fears so much as democracy, which is why it is far more comfortable ruling through judicial rulings and the unrestricted powers of an unelected bureaucracy. Obama’s two victories have given it a taste of a post-majority and post-American country ruled by a coalition of minorities, but its glee at that may be premature.

The Democratic Party has built its house of cards on locking in political and economic privileges for the different tiers of its coalition. From food stamps to government jobs, it is the old political machine gone nationwide, dispensing money and privilege to the different group of its coalition, as a remedy for the supposed privileges enjoyed by the majority.

It still talks about equality, now and then, but it has no interest in equality, because that’s too close to democracy. An equal population might start voting on economic merits, rather than the old game of special favors and privileged positions, and the Democratic Party, with its baggage train of professors who have never done anything more difficult than bore a class to death, bureaucrats who fear reform worse than death, and corporate and union bosses who expect special favors, would have nothing to offer them.

The coalition of the privileged underprivileged, united against the majority rule of the people who, unlike them, only erratically vote in their own self-interest, can achieve impressive turnouts, but that turnout is dependent on having something to gain from an election. And the closer the coalition of minorities comes to being the majority, the more unsustainable the payoffs become.

Liberalism has spent so much time working to destroy majority rule, that it has no idea what to do beyond that. Its only ideas involve suppressing majority rule through government power. It is incapable of meeting any challenge that cannot be oriented on the old familiar axis of oppressor and oppressed… and that makes it incapable of mature government.

Democrats with any economic sense turned on Obama after it was clear that he was incapable of having a serious conversation about economic reform. Those who didn’t, like Bloomberg, made it clear that they supported him for his social policies, not his economic policies. After the election, Obama justified their fears by going back to pushing tax hikes and cuts to the military as the solution for out of control spending and debt.

Cutting the military has long been a fond dream of the left and there’s plenty to cut. By the time Obama is done with the military, they really will be down to horses and bayonets. Raising taxes will bring in a little more money which will be thrown down the same old coalition hole as the money that came before it.

MY SAY: AM I ANTI-SEMITIC?

I dislike Senators Barbara Boxer, Carl Levin and Charles Schumer, Frank Lautenberg, Bernie Sanders, Joe Lieberman and Richard Blumenthal and Dan Cardin. I also don’t like David Axelrod, Stocking Stuffer Sandy Berger, Rahm Emanuel and Tom Friedman, just to name a few of my favorite nolikes.

Now, the question. Does that make me anti-Semitic? That’s rhetorical and makes the Black congressional Caucus’s claim that bashing Susan Rice is racist simply ridiculous.
