As the Jesuits almost said: “Give a child until he is seven and I will show you the fully indocrinated, yogurt-weaving, polar-bear hugging eco loon.”
Such, at any rate, has been the message at one of the panel discussions at this year’s luvvie-fest of impeccably correct thinking, the Hay Literary Festival, where a group of “CliFi” authors have been singing the praises of brainwashing the impressionable young through the medium of kiddie-friendly climate pornography.
Climate activists are targeting children through a new range of ‘cli-fi’ – climate fiction – novels which seek to highlight the dangers of global warming.
CAIRO – The Islamic State group claimed responsibility for a suicide bombing at a Shiite mosque in Saudi Arabia, warning that more "black days" loom ahead in a direct challenge to the rulers of the Sunni kingdom.
Friday's attack was the kingdom's deadliest militant assault since a 2004 Al Qaeda attack on foreign worker compounds, which sparked a massive Saudi security force crackdown.
However, this Islamic State attack in the village of al-Qudeeh in the eastern Qatif region targeted Shiites, whom ultraconservatives in Saudi Arabia regularly denounce as heretics.
WASHINGTON – Internal State Department emails in the aftermath of the Benghazi terror attack show then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton received detailed information indicating the strike was planned by well-trained fighters, yet her office continued to push the narrative days later that it began "spontaneously."
The messages were among 296 emails released Friday by the State Department, in the first batch of emails to be made public from Clinton's tenure as secretary of state. Totaling 896 pages, the emails show a series of Libya dispatches Clinton received from a confidant, as well as the barrage of messages among her and her aides after Sept. 11, 2012.
A top Iranian official has threatened Israel that Tehran’s proxy, the Lebanon-based terror group Hezbollah, has over 80,000 missiles at its disposal, and that the Shiite jihadists are ready to fire upon Jerusalem at a moment’s notice.
General Yahya Rahim Safavi, who serves as a top military advisor to Iranian dictator Ali Khamenei, claimed on Thursday that Hezbollah has 80,000 missiles should the “Zionists” threaten Iran. “Iran, with the help of Hezbollah and its friends, is capable of destroying Tel Aviv and Haifa in case of military aggression on the part of the Zionists,” claimed the Iranian general.
When unsuccessful Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis (D) was asked this week why it was acceptable to abort a seven-pound baby, she responded, “That never happens. It never happens. It really never happens.” As heard in a video taken by an anonymous citizen journalist who provided the recording exclusively to Breitbart News, Davis continued:
And, the only time that late term abortions occur is when something has gone horribly wrong and either the mother’s life is in danger or the child’s life is in a very precarious situation. What we can’t ever know is what people are dealing with when they make those personal choices. And, it’s not right for us to step into their shoes, is what I tell people.
On Friday, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo had a sparsely attended summit to discuss the state government’s official email policy. The final outcome is an eyebrow-raiser, with the governor deciding that in many cases state employees can delete any official email at will.
Cuomo has been under fire for the state’s previous practice of deleting all government emails 90 days after delivery, but his new policy didn’t assuage transparency advocates.
Instead of the automatic deletion policy, Cuomo announced that state employees at all levels could manually delete any email that no longer retained any “value.”
Police have launched an investigation into the controversial students’ union diversity officer who tweeted ‘kill all white men’.
Bahar Mustafa of Goldsmiths, University of London sparked a race row after telling white men not to attend an event on diversity in the curriculum. Amid increased scrutiny, she insisted she had done nothing wrong before tweeting with the hashtag #killallwhitemen.
She defended her tweet by saying that minority women cannot be racist or sexist.
Isis has used the latest issue of its propaganda magazine Dabiq to suggest the group is expanding so rapidly it could buy its first nuclear weapon within a year. The hyperbolic article, which the group attributes to the British hostage John Cantlie, claims Isis has transcended its roots as “the most explosive Islamic ‘group’ in the modern world” to evolve into “the most explosive Islamic movement the modern world has ever seen” in less than twelve months.
Photojournalist Cantlie is regularly used in the terror group’s propaganda and has appeared in a number of videos, including a YouTube series called "Lend Me Your Ears". He has been held a hostage by Isis for more than two years.
The more refugees brought into the country, the more government grants doled out to the nine resettlement agencies. Among them are the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service, Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, Church World Service, International Rescue Committee and the National Association of Evangelicals’ World Relief.
More than 90 percent of Syrian refugees will be Muslim
Of the 843 Syrians resettled in the U.S. since the start of the Syrian civil war, 92 percent have been Muslim
OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. — Republican Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul’s filibuster may have actually kept Paul’s GOP rivals in the upper chamber from attending a popular annual conservative conference this weekend.
The Daily Caller learned that the Paul had no intention of going to the Southern Republican Leadership Conference. The campaign told SRLC organizers he would not give remarks at the event because “he doesn’t do cattle calls.” However, Republican senators Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, and Lindsey Graham could not address SRLC attendees in person either, opting instead to give their speeches via video transmission to the crowd. Paul’s campaign did not send pre-taped video remarks.
