Just Saying, Neither Islam Nor Its PR Committee Is My Friend

Ayatollah Khomeini memorably articulated: ISLAM MAKES IT UNCUMBENT on all adult males, provided they are not disabled or incapacitated, to prepare themselves for the conquest of countries so that the writ of Islam is obeyed in every country in the world. . . . But those who study Islamic Holy War will understand why Islam wants to conquer the whole world. . . . Those who know nothing of Islam pretend that Islam counsels against war. Those [who say this] are witless. Islam says: Kill all the unbelievers just as they would kill you all! Does this mean that Muslims...

Echelon And On-Line Surveillance

BEAUTIFUL AND DELIGHTFUL MAN—whom I had the pleasure and fortune of the occasional chat afforded me over the twenty-three years he spent at the same firm for whom my wife also toiled as mensch of the bean counting and IT departments—Armenian genocide survivor, solid American patriot, respected and esteemed diplomatic spokesman during the Viet Nam years, former Time magazine VP, undeclared mentor of, ally, and yes, a kind jostling friend to me, Barry Zorthian, was buried yesterday. A spry, piercing intellect to the end, Barry was ninety years old, passing away rather suddenly with a staph infection at the same...


A Clockwork Tenacity: Strategic Debt Defaulting On The Rise

EAL ESTATE. ANOTHER SPLENDID EXAMPLE OF THE NOW not so misty ‘global conspiracy picture’ gaining clarity with a few more brush strokes of reality. This is just another facet of, and a continuation of the top down intentional pitting of the prudent against the not so prudent for control and elimination. This ballsy fact of a clockwork tenacity pushing for irresponsible financial activity goes well beyond instilling deflective jealousy and is more focused on creating anger and hate as strategic debt defaulting continues to rise thanks to the stranglehold the banks have on the economy. This push is an integral...


Like Any Other American Who Sits In That Office

OTICE ANYTHING SLIGHTLY OFF in the presentation of the following argument levied against Bill "Simple Man" O'Reilly and country singer Ray Stevens whose greatest hits are tongue in cheek novelty songs like The Streaker and Shriner's Convention? Why does the Left go to great lengths to guard their president from behavior that has been the norm in political life much longer than memory can reveal—what makes Obama so special that he is beyond reproach for his ill-formed and ordinary political gamesmanship? It’s not surprising that an anti-Obama song would be promoted on Fox News which actively promotes anything and anybody...


The Tao Of Strength

HE SUPERPOWER obsession, or finding comfort in one's own dog and pony show is mostly an American idiosyncrasy, in terms of nationalism and cultural hegemony, at this off peak point in time (Arabic-Islamic supremacism notwithstanding), although it might be said that Americans are uniquely afflicted if this observation by de Tocqueville can be extrapolated. Its only virtue is to lead, invariably, to recurrent quaintly absurd discussions that reveal few kernels of wisdom that are not connected to promoting the next big thing within the status quo. Put another way, the more things change, the more they remain the same, and...
