ACCORDING TO THE LEFT: Christianity Sucks and Islam is Awesome
Man, don’t you love how mainstream media and their soft-brain disciples make Christians out to be fish-stickered, bug-eyed equals to incensed Islam? If you were to accept as true what some atheists, secularists and prattling gay activists say about Christians, you’d think the church is chomping at the bit to chop off some heads of unbelievers, glory to Gawd!
Yep, if you were to believe the barf belched out by the BS brokers on the Left, you’d stagger away Kool Aid drunk with the belief that there is little disparity between conservative Christians and militant Muslims.
As a matter of fact, you probably would be bamboozled into believing that Islam is a peaceful, Little House on the Prairie religion being temporarily hijacked by jihadist renegades, and Christianity . . . Christianity is the real charity-vacant, vicious cult that’s vying for the opportunity to seize the whip and whip us good.
Yes, the postmodern reality stylists are working their butts off trying to convince us TV-addled cattle of two primary things: 1) violent jihad is not based on the Koran and 2) All conservative Christians are theocrats ready to burn Katy Perry at the stake, stone Lindsay Lohan in a nearby gravel pit and governmentally ramrod Christianity down everyone’s pie hole.
I haven’t seen this kind of ham-fisted, forced PR, farcical façade being parlayed upon the public since Michael Jackson tried to make out with Lisa Marie in an attempt to convince us all he’d found true love in an adult of the opposite sex.
Look, there’s no denying violent things have been done by the church and in the name of God, but that has been the exception and not the rule. In addition, when the church has spent time with its head up its butt doing bogus things, the church’s leaders have historically owned it when wrong, have not repeated the gaff, have grabbed the wheel and have effectively steered saints out of any erroneous, detrimental ditch.
Not so with Islam.
In Robert Spencer’s book, Religion of Peace, Why Christianity Is and Islam Isn’t, Bob shows those who can still be shown anything factual the massive and fundamental differences between Islam and Christianity. They are not equal no matter how much the blah blah blatherers of political correctness purport them to be. Their beliefs are not similar, nor their practices, nor their means to spreading their message—and to think otherwise, postmodern Pollyanna, could cost you your ass.

Obama’s Defensive tunnel vision misses the terror threats around him
On February 25, 59 students were killed in a government school in northern Nigeria. The attack was allegedly perpetrated by Boko Haram, an affiliate and ally of Al-Qaeda on the Islamic Maghreb, as well as Al-Shabaab. Al-Shabaab was responsible for the deadly Kenyan mall attack in September, and is similarly rumored to be allied with al-Qaeda.
The attack was carried out in the midst of ongoing conflict and insurrection spread by radical Islamist groups trying to destabilize the region in an effort to gain territorial control of several African nations. Many fear that the attack on the school in Nigeria will be the first of many.
Boko Haram and their allies Al-Qaeda on the Islamic Maghreb seek to bring back the days of an Islamic caliphate in northern Africa, a dream they share with several Islamic groups in the Middle East. Using insurgent tactics, funded by wealthy sheiks and imams from the Middle East, Boko Haram and their allies destabilize regions and cause unrest among the populations of certain countries. They target weak and corrupt presidents, they spark unrest in territories that are low income, and they use this instability to attempt to seize power and establish themselves in the region, eventually bringing back one by one the old nations of the Caliphate.
Libya is currently a target of Islamic radical insurgents who are taking advantage of the fall of Qaddafi and the chaos of war to seize control. In Mali, al-Qaeda-linked forces have incited war and attempted to take territory. They were only pushed back due to African Union, French, and minimally, American resistance. It is the same in Cameroon, in the Central African Republic, in Kenya, in Somalia, and all across North Africa.
In Syria, the revolution has been hijacked by Islamic radicals. Across Africa and into the Middle East, radical Islamists are fomenting instability in order to seize control.
It isn’t just Islamic radicals who are attempting to profit from chaos.

Just for fun…….
The good news coming out of the just-concluded legislative battle in Arizona is that religious freedom remains what it has been there, undiminished by Governor Jan Brewer’s veto of a bill meant to protect it. The bad news is that the debate over religious freedom has taken an ominous turn. Here are six takeaways from the controversy.
The media cannot be trusted to report accurately on social issues. I mention this first not because it is the most important part of the Arizona story — though it is very important — but because it has made understanding that story so difficult. The press leans to the left, as everyone knows, and especially on social issues. CNN anchors more or less openly advocated for a veto of the bill, which they would generally not do on tax legislation.
Political journalists tend to accept social liberals’ framing of issues, their terminology, and their claims, and to believe the worst about social conservatives. In the Arizona debate, these tendencies manifested in widespread reports that the bill authorized businesses to refuse to serve gay people who wanted to be their customers and in the labeling of the legislation as “anti-gay.”
Headlines in the New York Times, the Washington Post, USA Today, and many other outlets either used that label or repeated that claim. In their limited defense, the proximate reason for the legislation does have to do with homosexuality: Conservatives were concerned that without the law, business owners who object to same-sex marriage might be forced to take actions they regard as participating in, facilitating, or condoning it. They were moved by cases such as one in neighboring New Mexico, where a wedding photographer was punished for refusing to serve a same-sex commitment ceremony.

Heed Europe’s Plea For U.S. Natural Gas Exports
Geopolitics: Four central European nations have appealed to the U.S. to increase natural gas exports should Russia cut off its supply to Ukraine. We are the superpower of energy. Time to give Vladimir Putin some gas pains.
Hungary, Poland, Slovakia and the Czech Republic sent a letter Friday to House Speaker John Boehner, with a similar letter expected to be sent to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, asking the U.S. to expedite approval of natural-gas export applications. These nations believe a steady gas supply is key to the region’s economic and geopolitical stability.
Putin’s Russia has used its energy resources as a weapon, and the current crisis in Ukraine and Crimea is no exception. Most of the pipelines taking natural gas from Russia to a dependent Europe run though Ukraine, a fact not lost on fearful Europeans as the Russian bear growls anew.
President Obama says there will be “costs” for Russia’s seizure of Crimea, so it’s time the administration remembered that a crisis is a terrible thing to waste. This is a perfect opportunity to increase our exports, as Obama has pledged to do, and thwart in a non-military way Russia’s increasingly expansionist ambitions.
“The presence of U.S. natural gas would be much welcome in Central and Eastern Europe,” ambassadors from the four countries wrote to Boehner. “And congressional action to expedite (liquefied natural gas) exports to America’s allies would come at a critically important time for the region.”
Ukraine is dependent on Moscow for more than two-thirds of its natural gas, and Russia has been raising prices steeply. In 2012, Russia provided about 34% of the European Union’s natural-gas imports, second only to Norway, according to the Congressional Research Service.

Is Moms Demand Action A Hate Group?
Every once in a while, Americans will send me an article they’ve written. That’s exactly just what Iraqi War Veteran Richard Howell just did. The following article I found to be very thorough, well researched, factual, and 100% Mr. Howell’s work. It’s a bit lengthy, but worth the read. I hope you find it as enlightening as I did.
A few days after the Boston Marathon bombing, I remembered the idea was brought up that nobody was quick to blame all Muslims for it, yet, after the Sandy Hook massacre, 2nd Amendment supporters and gun owners were demonized en mass, so far as to actually receive media sponsorship. “Why is that?”, I thought.
There’s no doubt that US Congress is very familiar with left-wing focus groups that lobby politicians for a variety of changes that they seek. This includes a broad spectrum of environmentalists, animal rights activists, and so on.
My question is, “How does Moms Demand Action fit into the equation, and what are some of their features that make them unique?” In this article I will discuss Moms Demand Action in a little more detail.
After observing some of the comments that MDA supporters have written on various social media platforms, it reminded me of some of the same things that we’ve seen from groups like the Skinheads, Black Panthers, and Westboro Baptist Church.
At the time, the idea sounded somewhat laughable to make such a comparison, yet still, there was something about this group that just didn’t seem right, and I wanted to figure it out. This prompted me to begin research to find out whether or not there is a set of criteria that groups must meet in order to be considered a “hate group”.
Indeed there is.
WHAT IS A HATE GROUP?
According to the Southern Poverty Law Center, “All hate groups have beliefs or practices that attack or malign an entire class of people, typically for their immutable characteristics.” http://www.splcenter.org/get-informed/hate-map
