Why You Should Never, Ever Put Two Spaces After A Period

Can I let you in on a secret? Typing two spaces after a period is totally, completely, utterly, and inarguably wrong.
And yet people who use two spaces are everywhere, their ugly error crossing every social boundary of class, education, and taste. Read more of this post

Welche Religion vertritt der Papst?

Ist die katholische Kirche noch christlich?

Es wird zunehmend schwierig, die römisch-katholische Kirche zu positionieren. Schwierig vor allem deshalb, da die katholische Kirche evangelikalen Kirchen nacheifert und sich immer haltloser von politischen Meinungen treiben läßt. Read more of this post

Alles ist nun möglich: Freie Bahn der Korruption

Die Wiener Staats- und Oberstaatsanwälte haben sich die Renner-Medaille in Gold mit Brillanten verdient. Sie haben das Korruptionsverfahren gegen die Herren Faymann und Ostermayer eingestellt. Notgedrungen mit geradezu abenteuerlichen Begründungen. Read more of this post

Eine Tragödie und die völlig falschen Schlüsse daraus

Die Schiffskatastrophe vor Lampedusa lässt einen lauten Schrei durch alle kirchenoffiziellen und linken Lautsprecher gellen: Europa müsse die Grenzen öffnen, um solche tragischen Unglücksfälle zu verhindern. Damit laden aber in Wahrheit gerade diese Rufer einen erklecklichen Teil der Schuld an den Todesfällen auf sich. Denn gerade weil diese Rufe überall gehört werden, setzen immer mehr Afrikaner ihre Unzufriedenheit mit der eigenen Lage in einen konkreten Versuche der Migration um. Read more of this post

Linkspartei und die Partei der grünen Kaputtmacher

(Auszug)

Die Linkspartei in ihrer Dreifaltigkeit aus Poststalinisten, neokommunistischer Plattform und inzwischen grauhaarigem westlinkem Sektierertum, ist die deutscheste und eigentlich konservativste Variante der linken Parteien. Die Linkspartei ist übrigens auch die einzige Partei in Deutschland, die nicht in politischer Korrektheit erstickt, was sie ohne Zweifel sympathisch macht. Auf eine nähere Betrachtung dieser bis auf weiteres nicht regierungsfähigen Partei kann hier allerdings verzichtet werden. Read more of this post

Die unangenehme Sicht

Alte Bekannte

Wie ein Foto alle Gräuel der Welt abbildet, warum wir mit Bush viel besser dran wären, und wie eine linke Idee plötzlich verblasst.

Beschämend, diese Kälte, mit der die westlichen Öffentlichkeiten dem Treiben des Gasmörders und Menschenschinders Assad zuschauen. Ein Kommentator verglich unsere jämmerliche Untätigkeit gar mit den Westmächten, die während der 30er Jahre nichts gegen Hitlers Judenhatz unternommen hätten. Read more of this post

The Case of Obamas Missing Pants

There isn’t much enthusiasm for Obama’s plan for Syria. A lot of the Senate would like Obama to go bigger. A lot of the House would like Obama to just go.
Even the experts have trouble explaining how and why the attacks will do any good. The debate has congealed down to credibility.
The only real argument in favor of hitting Syria is Read more of this post

Al-Jazeera America is the Muslim Brotherhood Channel

Al-Jazeera America“: The very name gives me the heebie-jeebies. What does Al-Jazeera have to do with America?
Everything, if the cheers and happy talk of the American press corps are any measure. Entranced, media critics have greeted the rollout of “AJA” as that of just another news company, not the propaganda arm of monied Qatari despots. Read more of this post

Why Western intervention in Syria will leave chaos

Syria’s civil war is not America’s problem. Syria is surrounded by Turkey, Israel, Egypt, Jordan, and other Arab nations with large standing armies and advanced military equipment. Their cowardice in acting to stop a war on their doorstep should give us pause for thought. Why will they not act, but we must?
Why is American gullibility for war so strong that countries such as Saudi Arabia, Turkey, and Israel can dispense of their moral duties to the American taxpayer? Read more of this post

Western Christians Are Out Fighting en Masse for Islam

For these converts to Islam, there is only Jihad, the war for heaven and for hell.

The latest video of Jihadist propaganda from Syria shows the black flag proclaiming allegiance to Allah and a man who calls himself Abu Abd Al-Rahman.
“I am French,” he says. His parents were baptised as Catholics – as was he – and they know him as Nicolas. He is a 30-year-old convert from a middle-class background in Toulouse, where four Jews were gunned down last year. His mother works for the French army. In the the video, Nicolas appears in military fatigues, a Kalashnikov rifle across his legs. Read more of this post

Egypt’s One Chance for Democracy

Only capable armed forces can check the violent proclivities of Islamic supremacism.

As Egypt began to implode, yet again, John Kerry inadvertently stumbled into something a lot closer to the truth than the delusional “Arab Spring” narrative that has guided Obama-administration policy. The secretary of state, tied in knots by congressional foolishness that mandates terminating U.S. aid when a foreign government is ousted by a coup d’état, Read more of this post

Eulogy on Bill Livingston

Beloved former University of Texas president and World War II hero dies

A longtime University of Texas at Austin professor, president and World War II hero died Thursday morning, ending a Longhorn life well lived.
William S. Livingston worked at UT from 1949 until he retired in 2007 — and did about just about every job imaginable on campus in those six decades, Read more of this post

Is Obama Botching Egypt?

Rumsfeld Slams Handling of Crisis and War on Terror

Former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld slammed Obama’s handling of Egypt during an interview with Newsmax.com. “The people that we’ve sent there to deal with the problem have not done a particularly skillful job in my view. It’s unfortunate,” he said. Read more of this post

Syria’s war splits nation into 3 distinct regions

BEIRUT — More than two years into Syria’s civil war, the once highly-centralized authoritarian state has effectively split into three distinct parts, each boasting its own flags, security agencies and judicial system.
In each area, religious, ideological and turf power struggles are under way and battle lines tend to ebb and flow, making it impossible to predict exactly what Syria could look like once the combatants lay down their arms. But the longer the bloody conflict drags on, analysts says, the more difficult it will be to piece together a coherent Syrian state from the wreckage. Read more of this post

Fear in Egypt: A gloomy sunset on the Nile

The largest Arab country has become a source of fear: For itself, its neighbors, even more distant countries. Dizzied by rallies, a coup, and agitation for civil war, Egypt craves leaders of a kind it hasn’t had since antiquity.

Shaken by the unfamiliar rhetoric, gunshots, and bloodstains of civil war, Egypt is searching its soul – in vain. Once a symbol of stability, prosperity and tolerance, the largest Arab country has now become a source of fear: Fear for Egypt, for its neighbors, even for more distant countries as well.
