• ‘Evil’: Dred Scott, Roe, and Now ‘Equality Act’

    There was the Dred Scott Supreme Court decision in 1857, which actually endorsed slavery.

    Then there was the abortion right-creating Roe v. Wade high court ruling which had a foundation so shaky that even the justice who authored the opinion expressed his doubts.

    Now it’s the U.S. Congress, where the House last week adopted the “Equality Act.”

    It is nothing more or less than “a thinly veiled death sentence to the First Amendment to the Constitution,” James Dobson Family Institute founder James Dobson warned on Monday.

    “In the history of our nation, there have been times when evil was so apparent – and so heinous – that they stand in infamy decades later.

  • Judge Throws Out Unanimous Jury Verdict in Christmas-Light Fight

    The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals is being asked to restore a jury’s unanimous verdict against a homeowners’ association in a dispute over Christmas lights.

    First Liberty Institute filed the appeal on behalf of Jeremy and Kristy Morris, who are battling their HOA over their annual display of holiday lights at their home in Hayden, Idaho.

    A jury found the HOA targeted the Morrises with religious and other discrimination. It awarded them $60,000 in compensatory damages and $15,000 in punitive damages.

    The jury found the HOA revealed a “preference that a non-religious individual” should purchase the home the Morrises bought.

  • Archaeologists Find Secret Chamber Inside Nero’s Palace in Rome

    Archeologists have chanced upon an underground chamber decorated with images of panthers, centaurs and a sphinx in the remains of a vast palace built by the Emperor Nero in Rome.

    The room, which was part of the huge Domus Aurea palace built by the emperor in the first century AD, had remained hidden for nearly 2,000 years.

    It was discovered by accident during restoration of an adjacent area of the palatial complex, which was built on by subsequent emperors, including Trajan, and now lies interred beneath a hill next to the Colosseum in the historic heart of Rome.

  • Islam Is Violent Because Of Founder, Muslim Expert Says

    Since 9/11, when Islamic terrorists killed nearly 3,000 people, Muslim advocacy groups in the United States have had considerable success promoting the notion that Islam is a religion of piece.

    Al-Qaida, ISIS and other such violent groups have nothing to do with Islam, goes the narrative.

    But Hamed Abdel-Samad, an Egyptian-born political scientist and author who emigrated to Germany, insists otherwise, arguing one need only examine the sacred texts and the founder of Islam.

    “ISIS is doing nothing different than Muhammad and his successors, at the time,” Abdel-Samad said in a talk show on the Austrian ServusTV channel. “They brought an ideology into the world, using weapons and the subjugation of peoples.

  • CNN Claims FBI Verified Most Of Steele Dossier

    Special counsel Robert Mueller’s two-year investigation debunked major claims in the infamous anti-Trump dossier of Russian sources and corroborated none of them.

    When put under oath, the author himself, former British spy Christopher Steele, admitted the contents were unverified. And the New York Times reported Steele now believes the feeding of the information to him may have been part of a Russian disinformation campaign.

    But that didn’t stop CNN’s Alisyn Camerota from declaring on her show Friday that the FBI corroborated “most of” of the dossier on Donald Trump.

    “They investigated everything that was in the dossier and corroborated most of it,” she said, the Daily Caller reported.

    Stunning Number Of Americans Look To Bible For Answers

    While researchers have observed an overall decline in the percent of Americans who identify as Christian, a newly published annual survey found nearly half of all adults engage with the Bible at least three or four times a year on their own.

    Significantly, the study shows that 21 million new people are looking to the Bible for wisdom and guidance this year.

    Pew: Many Unhappy With Their Democracies

    U.S. Attorney General William Barr confirmed Wednesday in a Senate hearing he’s investigating evidence that Obama officials plotted to undermine Donald Trump during the 2016 election and after he won the White House.

    That might be one reason people are expressing a dissatisfaction with democracy, as a new Pew poll indicates.

    The poll finds people discontent about the economy, individual rights and “out-of-touch elites.”

    And not just in the United States.

    “Anger at political elites, economic dissatisfaction and anxiety about rapid social changes have fueled political upheaval in regions around the world in recent years,” Pew said. “Anti-establishment leaders, parties and movements have emerged on both the right and left of the political spectrum, in some cases challenging fundamental norms and institutions of liberal democracy.

    Book: Obama Saw ‘Personal Insult’ In Trump Victory

    Barack Obama saw the 2016 presidential victory by Republican Donald Trump as a “personal insult” and expressed disbelief that the American people had “turned on him,” according to a new report.

    The Daily Mail obtained access to a new edition of the book “Obama: The Call of History” by New York Times correspondent Peter Baker.

    And it reports the publication “lays bare Obama’s fury over the election results.”

    Originally released in 2017, it now has been updated, with “electrifying” reporting about election day, the Mail said.

    “Barack Obama admitted ‘this stings’ after the 2016 election result and spent the night watching the movie Dr Strange to try and distract himself, a new book claims,” reported the Mail.

    515 News Outlets Targeted For Blacklist, Including Breitbart, Drudge

    The non-profit journalism group the Poynter Institute published a list of 515 media sites – including Breitbart News, WND and Drudge – that it wants blacklisted and shut down.

    Poynter claims on its “About” page that “it champions freedom of expression,” noted Breitbart News Editor-at-Large John Nolte.

    But it describes its list as an “index of unreliable news sites” and calls for advertisers to put the sites out of business.

    Facebook, as WND reported, commissioned Poynter to approve the organizations it uses to fact check “fake news,” which include the Associated Press, FackCheck.org, PolitiFact and Snopes.

    Poynter, in its introduction of its “UnNews index,” hopes the list will be “useful for advertisers that want to stop funding misinformation.”

    “Advertisers don’t want to support publishers that might tar their brand with hate speech, falsehoods or some kinds of political messaging – but too often, they have little choice in the matter,” says Poynter.

    Dem Candidate Can’t Explain ‘GDP’

    (Washington Examiner) LAS VEGAS — Former Colorado governor and 2020 long shot Democratic presidential hopeful John Hickenlooper struggled to explain what “GDP” stands for when answering a question during a Service Employees International Union conference in Las Vegas.

    “Let’s take healthcare as a whole where next year we’ll be at 18% of our GDP. Our gross, whatever that stands for, demographic product,” Hickenlooper said at a convention center full of labor organizers, union members, and activists in Las Vegas, Nevada.” You know, I should know that, I can’t even remember.”

    GDP is shorthand for “gross domestic product,” an economic term that measures the total worth of an area’s goods and services.

  • Iran's New Guard Commander Aims To 'Annihilate' Israel

    Iran’s New Guard Commander Aims To ‘Annihilate’ Israel

    The new head of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps, which the U.S. designated a terrorist organization this month, led a missile program he boasted was capable of “annihilating” Israel.

    Maj. Gen. Hossein Salami will be promoted as the next head of the IRGC, replacing Maj. Gen. Mohammad Ali Jafari, the Washington Free Beacon reported.

    Salami, the architect of a massive buildup in Iran’s advanced ballistic missiles, has boasted of a system capable of “annihilating” Israel.

    He also worked to implement policies that enabled Iran to hide its nuclear weapons program from international inspectors.

    The Free Beacon reported, citing U.S. officials and regional experts,  the appointment of Salami is meant to solidify Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei’s hardline agenda.
