Peking drängt auf Expansion

Es geht um Fische, Rohstoffe und Erweiterung der Einflußsphäre – Philippinen wehren sich.

Der Territorialstreit im Südchinesischen Meer spitzt sich zu. Peking beansprucht über sein Hoheitsgebiet hinaus immer mehr Seeraum und gefährdet damit den Im- und Export Ostasiens über eine der wichtigsten und am meisten befahrenen Schifffahrtsstraßen der Welt. Die sich wiederholenden Manöver der USA im Gelben Meer verschärfen die Lage. Den Rang als dominierende Macht der Region beansprucht Peking längst für sich. Selbst eine militärische Lösung des Territorialstreits, sprich Krieg, ist inzwischen kein Tabu mehr. Read more of this post

On the Lack of a Bill of Rights

When a building is to be erected which is intended to stand for ages, the foundation should be firmly laid. The Constitution proposed to your acceptance is designed, not for yourselves alone, but for generations yet unborn. The principles, therefore, upon which the social compact is founded, ought to have been clearly and precisely stated, and the most express and full declaration of rights to have been made. But on this subject there is almost an entire silence. Read more of this post

70th Anniversary of Assault on Pearl Harbour

Honolulu, Hawaii – The United States on Wednesday marks the 70th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbour with memorial services, lowered flags and silence at the moment the history-changing assault began.
Ceremonies were scheduled from Pearl Harbour in Hawaii to Washington DC on the US East Coast to remember the 2,400 Americans who died on December 7, 1941 when Japan launched a devastating surprise offensive on the US Pacific Fleet.
President Barack Hussein Obama called for the Stars and Stripes to be flown at half mast on federal buildings across the country, to mark National Pearl Harbour Remembrance Day. Read more of this post

The Seven Varieties of Gun Control Advocate

The right of decent private citizens to personally possess, transport, and responsibly use arms without government interference is the ultimate freedom and the main pillar supporting all other liberties. Few cultures have allowed their general population access to weapons, the tools of power, to the same degree as the United States. Instead, most societies have restricted the keeping and bearing of arms to a select few power brokers and their agents, often resulting in oppression on a grand scale. Read more of this post

The Most Dangerous Cities in America

A shocking report failed again to wake up people in charge. Is it coincidence that the areas listed have very restrictive gun laws? We don’t think so. Unarmed citizens are easy prey, a fact which is commonly neglected.

EARLIER this week, the FBI trumpeted the news that violent crime dropped 5.5% in 2010 while reported property crimes fell 2.8% during the depths of the worst economic slowdown since the Great Depression. The news, though, is far from positive. Read more of this post

The Politicization of American Islam

Since its inception, the Muslim Brotherhood has defined itself as the vanguard of a global Islamic revival. After starting out in Egypt in 1928, the Brotherhood had set up branches in Sudan, Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, Syria, Palestine, Morocco, Hyderabad (India), Hadramawt (Yemen) and Paris by 1937. The universality of the Brotherhood’s ideology and organization was described by its founder, Hassan al-Banna when he said:
»A Muslim individual, Muslim family, Muslim nation, Muslim government and Muslim state should be able to lead Islamic governments, should be able to unite the dispersed Muslims, should be able to regain their honor and superiority, and should be able to recover their lost lands, their usurped regions and their occupied territories. Then it should be able to raise the flag of Jihad and the call towards Allah until the entire world is benefited by the teachings of Islam.« Read more of this post
