Observations From the Back Row

Global Warming? The Pope is Wrong, By Alan CarubaI have devoted the better part of more than two and a half decades speaking out against the charlatans that have created and maintained the greatest hoax ever imposed on modern man. At the heart of this hoax has been the United Nations environmental program and at the heart of that program is an agenda to initiate a massive redistribution of wealth from industrialized, successful nations to those who have suffered, as often as not, from being ruled by despots of one description or another…..

Walter E. Williams: California's Water Problem - Californians are experiencing their third year of drought. Headlines read: "Current California Drought Is Driest In State's History; Scientists Fear 'Megadroughts' On Their Way." "Global Warming Upped Heat Driving California's Drought." Then there are scientific claims such as, "There's a rapidly growing body of scientific research finding that California is in the midst of its worst drought in over a millennium (and) global warming has made the drought worse."

Churches in Turkey on the Verge of Extinction - It wasn’t enough that they killed 3 million Christians and expelled another 1.5 million, destroying thousands of churches and monasteries, enslaving and and forcibly converting hundreds of thousands of mostly women and children to Islam; now they want to erase the last traces of Christianity in Turkey.The slaughter and oppression will never end until “…religion is all for Allah,” as the Qur’an says. That’s what they believe — that’s their goal. Period. It’s not about some grievances, it’s not about land disputes — it’s all about Islamic doctrine, as this example shows so well…..

UK: Labour leader says his government will criminalize“Islamophobia” - This is full-blown sharia in the UK — not only will our ban not be lifted, but I would also expect that more voices of freedom will be banned.We are going to make it an aggravated crime. We are going to make sure it is marked on people’s records with the police to make sure they root out Islamophobia as a hate crime.” The problem is that Islamic supremacists, apparently deliberately, conflate“Islamophobia” meaning attacks on innocent Muslims, which are never justified, with “Islamophobia” meaning honest examination of how Islamic jihadists use the texts and teachings of Islam to justify violence..

The Islamic Genocide ofChristians: Past and Present - April 24, we remembered how exactly 100 years ago the last historic Muslim caliphate, the Ottoman Empire, tried to cleanse its empire of Christian minorities — Armenians, Assyrians, and Greeks — even as we stand by watching as the new caliphate, the Islamic State, resumes the genocide.

Dennis Prager: Why Is Pakistan More Legitimate than Israel? Whenever I have received a call from a listener to my radio show challenging Israel's legitimacy, I have asked these people if they ever called a radio show to challenge any other country's legitimacy.

Clinton:'Deep-Seated Cultural Codes, Religious Beliefs...Have to Be Changed' - Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton says women won't have full access to "reproductive health care" until "deep-seated cultural codes, religious beliefs and structural biases" are changed. She urged every woman to be a "champion for change" in the world around them. Clinton made the remarks last Thursday at the 2015 "Women in the World Summit," a three-day gathering in New York that examined the "struggles and triumphs of women and girls around the globe."

Supreme Court to Rule on Same-Sex Marriage, By Alan Caruba
In 1973, the Supreme Court looked into the Constitution, found that it approved of abortion and overruled laws banning it. Other laws have since addressed late term abortions and those resulting from rape or incest, but killing human life in the womb has been lawful since then. According to the Guttmacher Institute from 1973 through 2011, nearly 53 million legal abortions occurred in the U.S. By dismantling the fundamental traditions and beliefs of a nation piece by piece, you ultimate will destroy it. Claiming this is done in the name of “love” or “equality” ignores the greater societal issues involved in marriage; the creation of families with mothers and fathers, and, indeed, the welfare of children raised in same-sex marriages……

Bill Murchison: The Court and Marriage Well. I really can't believe I am saying this. The U.S. Supreme Court is poised to tell us what marriage means. Not speculate; not explain. Tell: as in, "Wipe that smile off your face and listen to what I'm telling you."

DOJ: ‘No Scientific Basis' for Saying Same-Sex Couples‘Not Fit to...Become Parents’ - In a brief submitted to the Supreme Court in the case of Obergefell v. Hodges, which the court will hear tomorrow, the U.S. Department of Justice argues that state laws prohibiting two people of the same sex from marrying each other are…

Steny Hoyer: Same-Sex Couples Are Endowed ‘By God’ With Right to Marry -Citing the Declaration of Independence, House Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer (Md.) argued on the House floor yesterday that same-sex couples are endowed by “their Creator—by God” with a right to marry.

Exclusive: Bakers Facing $135K Fine Over Wedding Cake for Same-Sex Couple Speak Out - Almost two years ago, the owners of Sweet Cakes by Melissa had to close their bakery after declining to bake a cake for a same-sex wedding. They spoke exclusively to The Daily Signal about the ordeal and the impact on their family.….

Bowing to anti-science Zeitgeist, major food companies ditch safe and useful ingredients - Corporate flights from science, Part 2 and 3: Caving to “consumer concerns.” (For Part 1: see Mac/Cheese below). Chipotle rids itself of GMOs, while Pepsi eliminates aspartame from Diet Pepsi for sucralose. Major benefit for...public health? Not. Read more.

Kraft reformulates mac and cheese in a bow to consumer fears - Kraft is reformulating products to kowtow to consumer fears about “artificial dyes.”All their macaroni and cheese products will contain no artificial preservatives or synthetic colors. We thought that baseless concern had been debunked decades ago. Read more.

Anti-Trust Law and Lawlessness  - We all make mistakes and some of us learn from them. What is even better is to learn from other people's mistakes, where they pay for those mistakes while we learn free of charge.

Puffed-up Leftist Tyranny Punishes Dissenters - Forget for a moment the ever-failing economy, the implosion of our foreign policy coherence, and our virtually unilateral withdrawal in the war on terror under Barack Obama's presidency. If liberty lovers don't start fighting back soon, we'll forfeit our freedom of thought and religious expression under the assault of fascist leftist activists in our culture.
