Political correctness has important Christian issues being stifled while minor Muslim issues get undue attention

Brian Lilley:
There's been lots of talk about religious freedom, but it's all about one issue: the niqab and whether Muslim women can wear one during citizenship ceremonies.

Bell Media censors the news

Ezra Levant:
After the CRTC's recent "pick and pay" decision, Bell Media CEO Kevin Crull reportedly tried to ban CRTC chair Jean-Pierre Blais from appearing on CTV News to talk about it.

Hypocrite-in-Chief?

WUWT:
Rumours are flying that the owner of a beachfront mansion in Hawaii, which was once used to film the hit TV series “Magnum PI”, is none other than President Obama – the same President who warns us that global warming, and rising sea levels, are a greater danger to the future of America than Islamic terrorism.

What climate skeptics really think

Scottish Sceptic issues A personal apology to Obama and Cameron:
 Any Democrat, Tory or any other politicians who are still extolling the virtues of  Global ... will now know that they have been very mistaken: the public are no longer swallowing the
global warming lies!

... What a shame you didn’t listen to us sceptics

... Did it never occur to you that you were being led to attack vast constituencies of your own voters?
... This is what real sceptics, those real flesh sceptics who vote actually think:


















... So, sorry Obama, sorry Cameron, sorry to the hate-mongers like Kerry, sorry to the gullible idiots like Milliband. Sorry Jo Swinson my own MP. Sorry … to every politician who were so keen to jump on the bandwagon of hate directed against vast swathes or your own electorates.

The collapsing climate paradigm

Excellent guest post at WUWT by Earth Scientist, David Middleton, where he defines the current climate paradigm, details why it's collapsing and goes on to discuss the logical fallacies underlying the so-called "consensus":
"The paradigm is collapsing primarily due to the fact that the climate appears to be far less sensitive to changes in atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations than the so-called scientific consensus had assumed."

... In nearly 40 years as an Earth Scientist (counting college), I have never seen such an obsession with consensus.

... Why is there such an obsession with a 97% consensus?  My guess is that it is to enable [political] demagoguery.
More on consensus.

And speaking of political climate demagoguery:

Why the left hates Bibi Netanyahu

Lawrence Solomon tells us why:
Benjamin “Bibi” Netanyahu’s triumph in Israel’s election this week, so shocking and appalling to the Western press, is many other things, too. ...

... recognition by Israelis of Netanyahu as the Churchill of our times
... stands apart from virtually all other Western leaders
... a repudiation by Israelis of those same Western leaders
... Netanyahu’s march to freer markets.
... Under Netanyahu’s influence ... Israel systematically began dismantling the welfare state
... sold off Israel’s interests in state enterprises
... abolished foreign exchange controls and otherwise liberalized the economy,
... turning Israel into an entrepreneurial marvel 
... The Western press, operating as it does from its echo chamber, likes to describe Israel as increasingly isolated in the world due to its supposed failure to make peace 
... Israel, once the darling of the Socialist Internationale, is fast becoming the darling of all but Socialist-leaning Europe, Iran and the ISIS wannabe set
... Two years from now, Obama will be gone, to be remembered as the worst American president in memory. Prime Minister Netanyahu will remain in power and on the world stage
That's why.
