The current issue purportedly facing the West is hordes of Syrian refugees. The present crisis is being called the greatest refugee crisis since World War II, and papers in both New York and London calling for Europe and America to “do something” about this crisis. This has become particularly true in light of the tragic drowning of Syrian child Alan Kurdi, shown to the world in a photograph which has gone viral. With potentially as many as 10 million Syrians seeking refuge from the horrors of their homeland’s civil war, many nations are wondering what, if anything, can be done for the...Read More

Planned Parenthood, an organization that supposedly serves as the defender of a woman’s right to choose, is being exposed as a wholly corrupt body in a recently popularized series of seven videos (with more still to come).

The Bowman-Cryers proceeded to take Kleins to court. This year, Oregon Labor Commissioner Brad Avakian, ordered the Kleins to pay $135,000 in damages to the Bowman-Cryers. In response to this case, the Kleins posted a sign in...Read More
When bad things happen, we want someone or something to blame. It helps us come to terms with what has happened and direct our emotions at a tangible target. America, following the recent shooting at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina, has placed its blame upon something. No, not evil gun-toting Southern whites (for once), but upon the Confederacy, whose flag the shooter was displaying in Facebook photos. As a result, the Confederate flag is being banned… well, everywhere. South Carolina has considered removing the Stars and Bars from its state capitol. Tedd Starnes notifies us that,...Read More
