Huckabee is Right: Iran Nuclear Deal Brings us Closer to Catastrophe of Holocaust Proportions

This article by Anne Bayefsky originally appeared on Breitbart News.

When former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee raised the specter of the Holocaust in his evaluation of President Obama’s Iran deal, he touched a raw nerve because Huckabee got it right: The Holocaust taught us that evil is not satiated after it consumes Jews. A deal that is catastrophic for Israel is also catastrophic for the United States.

Political parties should pay their own way

This column originally ran in the Winnipeg Free Press on July 31, 2015

Governments spend money on all kinds of foolish things from robotic Christmas trees to beer growlers to pensions for former members of parliament who are criminals. The Canadian Taxpayers Federation (CTF) works hard to reduce government waste and we’re not going to run out of work any time soon. But accountability is another key pillar of our work so we don’t quibble over the funding for one government function: democratic institutions.

Lawmakers informed that Hillary’s emails contain ‘hundreds’ of instances of classified nat-sec mate

For the last week or so, the Hillary faithful have been hanging their hat on the notion that “only four emails” sent from her private server contained classified material.  They argue that these four emails, which contained classified material from five national security agencies, were just a simple mistake.  There was no reason to think that they were emblematic of a larger problem.

Debbie Wasserman Schultz fails - miserably - to explain the difference between a Democrat and a Soci

Usually, when a completely discredited very important Democrat appears on the Chris Matthews program, you expect to see a lot of coddling and hand holding. These people represent Matthews’ team, and he can normally be counted on to go easy with the questions. Every once in a while, though, he lives up to the show’s name and lobs a Hardball. - See more at: http://www.caintv.com/debbie-wasserman-schultz-fails#sthash.5OFqU23F.dpuf

Trump’s business plan for media apprentices

America: If you want to get past the malignant force choking off every last scrap of your liberty and freedom, you have to go back to school, the one that instructs you how to deal more effectively with an in-the-government’s-pocket mainstream media.

With the Republican majority sent to D.C. now in league with the Democrats, there’s no other way.

Planned Parenthood: Serving mankind from dust to dessert

Many baby boomers will recall the classic 1962 Twilight Zone episode To Serve Man, about a seemingly benevolent alien race of giants coming to earth to solve the ills of mankind. Although some people were initially suspicious of the aliens’ intentions, their skepticism was assuaged when the aliens shared their advanced technology and made the earth a better place to live, stopping wars and increasing the food harvests of the planet. Soon, regular flights to the aliens’ home planet were arranged for the masses. Scenes showed countless people excitedly boarding space ships for the vacation of a lifetime. (Spoiler alert). A book left by the aliens, titled To Serve Man, was ultimately deciphered by government cryptographers and it was determined to be… a cook book.

Blind, stubborn ideology, gross incompetence caused capitulation to Iranian totalitarian theocracy

Almost two years of “negotiations,“the final “deal"appears as a total surrender of the Obama government to all the demands of the Ayatollahs who boasted that all their red lines have been met. The deal will put them on the path to become a nuclear power, not as a pariah but legitimized by the US and Europe;they will continue to enrich uranium and to develop their ICBM program; the lifting of the sanctions will give them 150 billion dollars to improve their economy and their military capabilities which include, of course, strengthening Hizbollah, Hamas, and other purveyors of terror in the troubled Middle-East.

The Left’s Fight-for-$15 Scam

The current feel-good push for a $15 an hour minimum wage has nothing to do with helping workers and everything to do with advancing the goals of the left wing, especially the labor movement.

This is true despite the occasionally soaring rhetoric of President Obama amid the Left’s incessant whining about “income inequality,” itself a particularly un-American concept, an imaginary evil that dwells only in the nightmares of left-wingers. The fact gets lost that the minimum wage itself and continuing increases in the minimum wage hurt working people. Period. And as economist Thomas Sowell has pointed out, minimum wage laws themselves have an inglorious history, having been used to price minorities out of labor markets. If a racist business owner has a choice between a person whose race he likes and someone whose race he doesn’t like and their services cost the same, take a guess whom he’ll pick.

Donald Trump’s Greatest Hits

Donald Trump has gotten popular, in part, by challenging the media. But he has praised journalists on occasion. His 2011 book, Time to Get Tough, said David Gregory was “doing a fine job filling some awfully big shoes over at Meet the Press.” It was a reference to legendary and highly respected host Tim Russert, who had passed away.

So-called “Sleepy Eyes Chuck Todd,” who replaced Gregory, is a favorite Trump target. “The thing I find most offensive about Chuck Todd is the fact that he pretends to be an objective journalist,” Trump writes, “when in reality the guy is a partisan hack.”

EGYPT: Fate of Kidnapped Christians Unknown

Source: Morning Star News

Travelling to Libya to be a migrant worker is considered “a quest for the insane” because of the extreme danger involved, according to Ezz Tawfik, a Coptic journalist in Upper Egypt. Yet, in spite of the potential harm, crushing poverty in Egypt drives many, like Bakhit Nageh Efrank Ebeid, 21, to risk their lives in hopes of providing food for their families. That’s why he set out from Kom Badar, Egypt, for Tripoli, Libya.

It’s Time for President Obama to Approve Keystone XL

President Obama has delayed approving the Keystone XL pipeline for almost 7 years, indicating that he would only approve the pipeline if it did “not significantly exacerbate the problem of carbon pollution.”[1] The President’s assertion is suspect, considering there are other sources of oil that the President doesn’t seem to have problems with that emit more carbon dioxide when produced than Canadian oil sands.
