“Blogfather” of Iran Sentenced to Jail

My new post up at NewsReal Blog. Here’s a few excerpts:

“The Blogfather is being jailed, not for any substantive crime, but because he has done what is most terryifing to the Islamic Theocrats ruling Iran; he has given the young a voice, a new outlet to voice their anger and dismay at the Ayatollah and all the thugs under him.”

“…as a blogger myself, I can only wish his speedy release and the quick demise of the regime that made freedom of speech a crime.”

A fellow blogger has been jailed. So I’m taking this very personally.

American Thinker: More class warfare nonsense from Summers’ possible replacement

First piece published in The American Thinker! Here’s an excerpt:

Class Warfare  might be getting a more empowered champion in the White House. Laura Tyson, a possible replacement for Larry Summers as the director of the National Economic Council, has recently been…

“…Let me counter all the things she said with one simple quote from quite possibly the greatest economists who ever lived, Ludwig Von Mises:

“Government spending cannot create additional jobs. If the government provides the funds required by taxing the citizens or by borrowing from the public, it abolishes on the one hand as many jobs as it creates on the other.”

“Leftists Silence Rape Victims”

New post published in NewsReal Blog.

Just when you thought the Left couldn’t get any lower.

“…rape occurred several months ago in the village of Umm Salmona, nearBethlehem. The victim, an American activist, wanted to press charges but leftist activists put pressure on her not to do so, so as not to damage the struggle against the ‘occupation.’”

[…}

“…what then is the moral stature of those who knowingly defend this kind of evil, and try to conceal it to the world and then damns the people who try to fight it?”

Life under Communism: Do the Young Ones Know?

Another work published in NewsReal Blog.

Excerpt:

“The author, Charlotte Cushman, writes vividly and very personally on what it was like to have family who escaped the brutal rule of Communism. She recalls how her uncle, who escaped communist Yugoslavia and had just arrived in America, was traumatized:

“He was very nice and a lot of fun, but he was very nervous. He was nervous all the time. When we would go out in the car he would constantly be looking around, smoking a cigarette, with hands shaking, glancing continuously at the cars behind us or next to us. He would say things like, “They are after me.” “They have followed me here.” “They’re going to get me.”

“…Communists controlled everyone and everything.”

Now a Part of Horowitz’s NewsReal Blog

Surrounded.

I have wonderful news. I’m now a part of David Horowitz’s NewsReal Blog team. I’m fan of his and have found great value in his works and the works he’s involved with. So this is an incredible honor for me! I’d like to give a big thanks to David Swindle for making this possible. My first piece is about Glenn Beck and the Tea Party. Here’s an excerpt :

“In matters of style, swim with the current; in matters of principle, stand like a rock.” -Thomas Jefferson

In a recent episode of his show, Glenn Beck essentially told the entire Tea Party to not look stupid. In a kind of mocking tone he discouraged people to wear Statue of Liberty costumes, stop bringing signs etc. Well, here’s an excerpt:

“Maybe no more dressing up, you know, with Abe Lincoln or, you know, putting the foam finger on your head or something like or the “Obama is a socialist” T-shirt. You might want to put it back in the drawer and let me explain why.”

I was surprised, mildly offended and taken aback at first. I felt like the guy wanted to remove the most exciting parts of the Tea Party. But like he said in the last sentence, he….

“Let them come to New York”

Beautiful

“I would give the greatest sunset in the world for one sight of New York’s skyline. Particularly when one can’t see the details. Just the shapes. The shapes and the thought that made them. The sky over New York and the will of man made visible. What other religion do we need? And then people tell me about pilgrimages to some dank pesthole in a jungle where they go to do homage to a crumbling temple, to a leering stone monster with a pot belly, created by some leprous savage. Is it beauty and genius they want to see? Do they seek a sense of the sublime? Let them come to New York, stand on the shore of the Hudson, look and kneel. When I see the city from my window – no, I don’t feel how small I am – but I feel that if a war came to threaten this, I would throw myself into space, over the city, and protect these buildings with my body.”  –Ayn Rand
