A world that did not lift a finger when Hitler was wiping out six million Jewish men, women, and children is now saying that the Jewish state of Israel will not survive if it does not come to terms with the Arabs. My feeling is that no one in this universe has the right and the competence to tell Israel what it has to do in order to survive. On the contrary, it is Israel that can tell us what to do. It can tell us that we shall not survive if we do not cultivate and celebrate courage, if we coddle traitors and deserters, bargain with terrorists, court enemies, and scorn friends. – Eric Hoffer

Look at the past eight years. During those eight years, there was no space between us and Israel, and what did we get from that? When there is no daylight, Israel just sits on the sidelines, and that erodes our credibility with the Arab states. – President Barack Hussein Obama, 2009

Good courage in a bad affair is half of the evil overcome. – Titus Maccius Plautus

He who does not punish evil commands it to be done. – Leonardo Da Vinci

Shall I tell you what the real evil is? To cringe to the things that are called evils, to surrender to them our freedom, in defiance of which we ought to face any suffering. – Seneca

The trouble with Islam is deeply rooted in its teachings. Islam is not only a religion. Islam (is) also a political ideology that preaches violence and applies its agenda by force. – Dr. Wafa Sultan

Our Watcher’s Council Nominations – ‘Legacy’ Edition

There are a lot more bodies I could add to the pile… the dead in Libya, Mali, Nigeria, Algeria, Israel, Egypt and Americans murdered by the illegal migrants he’s allowed in, as well as veterans whom have died in the morass of our own dysfunctional VA system. If a president like Barack Hussein Obama can tango through a record like that and not get impeached, it says a great deal about how low the bar for our leaders has become and what the American people are apparently willing to put up with. And that’s our legacy, as well as his. Think about it.

Since marriage constitutes slavery for women, it is clear that the women’s movement must concentrate on attacking this institution. Freedom for women cannot be won without the abolition of marriage. – Sheila Cronin, leader of the feminist organization NOW

The haste and vehemence with which scores of Duke University professors publicly took sides against the students in this case is just one sign of how deep the moral dry rot goes, in even our most prestigious institutions.We have become a society easily stampeded, even by the unsubstantiated, inconsistent and mutually contradictory statements of a woman with a criminal record.

All it takes is something that invokes the new holy trinity of the intelligentsia — “race, class and gender.” The story of a black woman gang-raped by white men fit the theme so compellingly that much of the media had no time to waste trying to find out if it was true before going ballistic. – Thomas Sowell on the Duke Lacrosse rape case.

Rape is nothing more or less than a conscious process of intimidation by which all men keep all women in a state of fear. – Susan Brownmiller, noted feminist authoress and academic.

You know, when Republicans were in charge, we doubled the debt. But, now, our concern is the Democrats are in charge and they’re tripling the debt. So, really, our concern is that we want smaller government. – Rand Paul

We believe, as our founders did, that ‘the pursuit of happiness’ depends upon individual liberty; and individual liberty requires limited government. – Paul Ryan, GOP Speaker of the House

None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free. – Goethe
