US Compensation: With or Without Strings Attached?

Part 11 - JULY 13 1988
‘‘What’s a life worth under international law? No one really knows.’’—Richard B. Lillich, University of Virginia Law School

According to a recent poll, three out of five Americans oppose compensation. Those sentiments are hardly surprising given Teheran strained relation with the West, and the US in particular. Few have forgotten the destruction of the US embassy in Iran. And many have suspected that Tehran played a role in the murder of 241 U.S. servicemen in Beirut.

The New Yorker’s cartoon, El Rushbo style

imageThere’s a great picture of Rush Limbaugh standing over the New Yorker cartoon of the Obamas in the Oval Office up on the Rush Limbaugh website today.  El Rushbo is standing in front of the cartoon, holding a paintbrush and a palette.

  It’s not that radio’s Rush is a closet Leonardo da Vinci.  This is how near-sighted Liberals see it.  According to the Libs and their fellow travelers in the Drive-By Media, the cartoon, which was really poking fun of paranoid Americans against Obama, would have achieved its point better had only Rush been the artist.

Had the radio giant been the cartoonist depicting how Americans see who is arguably the most inexperienced candidate for president in history and his Mrs., he would have got it right on the money.

Oil is NOT a fossil fuel and AGW is non-science

by Peter J. Morgan

We all grew up believing that oil is a fossil fuel, and just about every day this ‘fact’ is mentioned in newspapers and on TV. However, let us not forget what Lenin said – “A lie told often enough becomes truth.” It was in 1757 that the great Russian scholar Mikhailo V. Lomonosov enunciated the hypothesis that oil might originate from biological detritus. The scientists who first rejected Lomonsov’s hypothesis, at the beginning of the nineteenth century, were the famous German naturalist and geologist Alexander von Humboldt and the French chemist and thermodynamicist Louis Joseph Gay-Lussac, who together enunciated the proposition that oil is a primordial material erupted from great depth, and is unconnected with any biological matter near the surface of the Earth.

The Natural Cycle Of Environmentalism

Satire

Once upon a time, there was a well known ex-loser politician who loved money and fame more than anything else in the world.

Then one day some environmentalists came to see him with a proposal to make a lot of money. They explained that they could weave a fantastic deceptive story that the sky is falling and they wanted him to be their spokesman to pronounce and promote this story to the people.

It’s Official…James Baker Has Lost His Mind

Anyone familiar with the threat posed by the advancing American Fifth Column understands all too clearly that our Constitution is under attack. Whether it is the insistence that the Constitution is a living document meant to conform to the will of the times or the institution of political correctness – a shadow set of laws effectively usurping the laws of our Constitutional Republic – the American Fifth Column is slowly, incrementally, systematically, chipping away at the wisdom as set forth by our Founders and Framers. With news that a non-governmentally charged commission is introducing a measure that would impose “group think” on the Commander-in-Chief, it is evidenced that the American Fifth Column is on the march.

“Baby-faced” bin Laden boy’s bar mitzvah debut on World Web

imageIt is only the British tabloids that could describe Osama bin Laden’s infidel-hating son, Hamza, as a poet.

  “THIS (emphasis, The Sun’s) is Osama Bin (sic) Laden’s school-age son, who yesterday continued his father’s mission of hate—with a POEM (emphasis The Sun’s) begging for Britain to be destroyed.”

(Simon Hughes, Chief Investigative Reporter, The Sun, July 8, 2008).

  Noting that the 16-year-old son of the world’s most wanted terrorist was “baby-faced”, The Sun pointed out that he has already been dubbed, the “Crown Prince of Terror”.

  In his message to wannabe terrorists, bin Laden Jr. wants to “Accelerate the destruction of America, Britain, France and Denmark.”

Is Saddam’s “yellowcake” safe in Montreal?

image The US military’s painstaking trail of getting 550 metric tons of “yellowcake” out of Iraq across two oceans to its final Canadian destination may not have considered that Montreal is a leading centre for Islamist and Jihadists groups in North America.

  The booty, described as “the last major remnant of Saddam Hussein’s nuclear program” arrived in Montreal on the July 4th weekend, where it will remain until Fall.

  The military operation to remove the massive amount of concentrated natural uranium from the former Tuwaitha nuclear complex about 12 miles (19 kilometers south of Baghdad) was utterly hush hush.
