Contrast the clear statement which the King of Jordan made about the barbarically brutal burning of their prisoner of war with the convoluted comment made by President Barack Obama.
Jordan has promised a swift, “earth-shaking” response to ISIS immolating their hostage. No doubt that “the leader of the free world” will be happy to lead from behind providing logistics and support to an effort to eradicate this inhumane organization.
Sotomayor’s pithy quip raises questions about her judicial philosophy.
While the “Wise Latina” has occasionally uttered allegiance the rule of law and that the role of a judge is not to make the law but to apply it, Sotomayor sometimes seems content to include herself in the process.
But does a consciousness on being a role model make for a sort of judicial activism which inserts the self into a rendering of justice?
Justice Sotomayor has even reached out to the crumb chasers with her appearance on Sesame Street in which the dialogue sounded as leaden as the cafecita.
While the baby talk explanation of what her job is works for the kinder care sect, one wonders if it reveals a fundamental misunderstanding of Justice Sotomayor’s role on the Supreme Court.
No wonder Justice Sotomayor does not believe in judicial activism as it seems like the root of her judicial philosophy with a veneer of the rule of law and the spiff of class conscious inspiration.
contributions to peace and security.” This led to a standing ovation which drown out the progressive protesters.
Former Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal (R-LA) traveled to London England to address the Henry Jackson Society. This British think tank, named after the anticommunist defense hawk Sen. “Scoop” Jackson (D-WA), is dedicated to support a strong military and a “forward strategy” (involving diplomacy, culture, economics and politics) to make the world safe for modern liberal democracies.
Jindal chose to focus his remarks on the dangers of political Islamism both in global hot zones as well as within Western democracies.
Jindal alluded to no go zones in Europe. After the speech, Jindal was pressed by a CNN reporter to name a No Go zone in London, the presumed Republican presidential hopeful refused to give specifics.
So instead of concentrating on the substance of the speech, a politically correct media inclined to destroy any rivals to the second coming of the Clintons to the Oval Office, played a media game of Gotcha’.
Jindal sought to properly define “Smart Power” to pursue American political and economic security. But since the two term Louisiana Governor is considered in the hunt for the 2016 GOP presidential nomination, the Lamestream Media will use political language to shape the race as they will.
Maggie Simpsons flag waving was a homage to the iconic painting Liberty Leading the People (1830) by Eugene Delacroix along with the social media meme #JeSuisCharlie (I am Charlie). Or perhaps the pose was inspired by Cosette in Les Miserables.
Even after 26 seasons on American television with nearly 550 episodes, the Simpsons shows that it has the pulse on what animates the public.
“Duke remains committed to fostering an inclusive, tolerant and
welcoming campus for all of its students. However, it was clear that what was conceived
as an effort to unify was not having the intended effect.”
The idea of the Islamization of France is not a new one. The Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN) has been covering the sensitive subject for a couple of years, as is seen in their report about Generation Identity protests against ’68ers (street protesters in May, 1968) who are allowing the Islamization of France.
But the Islamist jihadist Parish shootings at Charlie Hebdo as well as the Kosher grocery store highlights the cultural clash as well as homegrown terrorists who feel isolated from mainstream French values.
Soren Kern of the Gatestone Institute had a sobering chronology of the tensions created in the gradual Islamization of France.
It is estimated that 10% of the French population are Muslim (about 6.5 million of the total population of 66 million), but the government can not say with certainly since French is mandated to be secular. Nonetheless, until the Charlie Hebdo attacks, the French government have implemented politically correct accommodations their Muslim residents and citizens. The most notable of these practices are 750 “No Go Zones”, which are euphemistically called “zones urbanes sensibles” where French gendarmes dare not go and sharia law reigns.
French Prime Minister Manuel Valls commented that there is a war being waged by Islamist Jihadists which threatens western values.
How the world reacts to these outrageous atrocities will determine if the West will retain its values of freedom and religious pluralism or if we will cower into de facto dhimmitude.
