We are not talking about a house party we are talking about 5 people. We are also talking about a young teen age girl alone with three drunk "older" boys in a home suddenly by herself when her friend disappears. That would be something to remember.— Jerry Brown (@sebastianjer) September 23, 2018
Lisa Page bombshell: FBI couldn’t prove Trump-Russia collusion before Mueller appointment TWEET SHARE MORE
To date, Lisa Page's infamy has been driven mostly by the anti-Donald Trump text messages she exchanged with fellow FBI agent Peter Strzok as the two engaged in an affair while investigating the president for alleged election collusion with Russia.
Unseal the FISA redactions? We should be alarmed by what's already disclosed Will this be the week? With bated breath, we wait to find out whether we've reached the moment, after the Labor Day end of summer, just as the critical midterm races heat up, when President Trump will follow through on his threat to declassify and publicize key FISA-gate documents - in particular, the redacted portions of the Carter Page surveillance-warrant applications.
Opinion | When I challenge the president, I do it directly. My anonymous colleague should have, too.
We have enough issues to deal with in the world, so it's unfortunate to have to take time to write this, but I feel compelled to address the claims in the anonymous "resistance" op-ed published this week in the New York Times. The author might think he or she is doing a service to the country.
Trump’s new science advisor calls ‘global warming’ a ‘cult movement’ & ‘pure belief disguised as science’
Trump's new science advisor calls 'global warming' a 'cult movement' & 'pure belief disguised as science'
President Donald Trump has fired a huge salvo against the man-made climate change establishment with his pick of new top White House advisor Dr. William Happer of Princeton University.
Throughout history there are countless examples of individuals, governments or even entire societies descension into the abyss when they come to believe that life has no value. The endgame to this is always death and a moral sickness which destroys that individual, government or society.
The Nazis were by no means the first or the last to deem certain individual classes of people “undesirable.” They were however an illustrative example of how a society could be led like sheep to the slaughter, to moral bankruptcy. An example of how an educated and even a religious society could be turned into a society which readily accepts the unacceptable.
Morality, like beauty, is indeed in the eye of the beholder, but uncaring slaughter of others is far more than a moral issue, it is determinative of civilized humanity itself.
Simply put, slaughter of innocent humans is uncivilized, morally bankrupt and inhumane.
Interestingly the online Webster Dictionary gives this as a definition of inhumane:
: not kind or gentle to people or animals : not humane
the inhumane [=cruel] treatment of prisoners
The entire pro-choice argument is based on thinking that is a relic of a time far removed from the society we now live in. We now live in a society where contraception is not only accepted it is taught and encouraged by the majority.
The “choice” that its adherents champion is, in a vast majority of cases, the second choice after first making an irresponsible first choice. I do not mean partaking in sexual activity, that is an individual personal and moral choice, I speak of partaking in unprotected sex in the first place.
That is the “choice” that the so called pro-choice movement would have us ignore.
Regardless of gender, life and especially adulthood is filled with responsibilities. A responsible human first and foremost is responsible for their own actions, or inactions. A civilized society is built on the concept of individual accountability. We, each of us, is responsible for what we do and how it may affect others.
We all make mistakes, an unwanted pregnancy ought to be viewed as a mistake, not a choice. Certainly the child of this mistake is not the mistake, to say that it is, is to say that the destruction of the child is self serving murder.
To say that a woman has the choice to create life in order to destroy it is condoning infanticide, plain and simple.
At any level, once life has no value, nothing has value. At that point every aspect of life becomes a meaningless show. Preening about “caring” for others, whether it be any particular group, ethnicity, or gender is pure hypocrisy. When your internal philosophy finds no compassion for the most innocent and defenseless of all creatures, the unborn, the rest is all show.
Spare us the outrage for the destruction of forests, or the unjust slaughter of animals. Spare us the candlelight vigils for the condemned criminals while condoning nay encouraging and championing the wanton destruction of life in the womb, who truly are those who have been imprisoned without trial let alone choice.
Better yet spare the innocent from your false and depraved choice.
Dear Reader, As you can imagine, more people are reading The Jerusalem Post than ever before. Nevertheless, traditional business models are no longer sustainable and high-quality publications, like ours, are being forced to look for new ways to keep going. Unlike many other news organizations, we have not put up a paywall.
Of all the places to discover a lost city, this pleasing little community seems an unlikely candidate. There are no vine-covered temples or impenetrable jungles here - just an old-fashioned downtown, a drug store that serves up root beer floats and rambling houses along shady brick lanes.
With the most recent grandstanding by Jim Acosta at a White House briefing, the issue of fake news and those who push it being enemies of the people came to the forefront of the conversation again. Acosta, the liberal-activist-posing-as-objective-journalist wrapped in sanctimonious hypocrisy, demanded that Sarah Sanders say the press is the not the enemy of the people.
