Crying “Lone Wolf”

 

 

Steyn No Such Thing As Lone Wolf

 

 

 

” The guy who took a hatchet to a New York policeman was apparently a “lone wolf”, just like the guy who took a double-barreled shotgun to a Canadian soldier was a “lone-wolf”. Earlier today, I swung by Varney & Co on Fox Business to discuss the umpteenth member of Local 473 of the Amalgamated Union of Lone Wolves:

” This term ‘lone wolf’ is a cop-out…the idea that they somehow have to have a membership card in Islamic State or in al Qaeda for it to be official, fully-credentialed terror, like getting a hairdresser’s license in New York State is completely preposterous” he stated.

Steyn added that the rhetoric of “lone wolf” terrorists allows those who do not want to admit that radical Islam is a problem to brush off terror as isolated incidents, saying “all jihad is local. That actually suits them, to say, ‘oh no this is just some mentally ill guy in Ottawa and this is another guy who’s a bit goofy in New York and there’s no connection between the two.’ Because otherwise you have to treat it like your other big story. You have to treat it like ideological Ebola and you have to stop the infection…

Has Apple Maps Found The Loch Ness Monster?

” Since its inception in the sixth century, the legend of the Loch Ness Monster has endured unreliable sightings, doctored photos and faked footprints, but a mysterious satellite image has given fresh hope to believers of the elusive Scottish sea creature.

  The image, taken by an Apple map satellite, depicts a shadowy form of around 100 feet in length with something akin to flippers in the water of the Loch Ness.”

” We’ve been looking at it for a long time trying to work out exactly what it is,” Gary Campbell, president of the Official Loch Ness Monster Fan Club, told the Daily Mail.

” It looks like a boat wake, but the boat is missing. We’ve shown it to boat experts and they don’t know what it is.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

” After studying the image for six months, and with apparently no other obvious explanation, the Club has concluded that shadow is probably the Loch Ness Monster.”

Facts From The Independent Women’s Forum

 

 

Published on Apr 4, 2013

” Independent Women’s Forum, in a continued effort to set the record straight about the real reason for the statistical difference between men and women’s earnings , releases an informative, stop-frame animation web video — Straight Talk About the Wage Gap . The video explains how women’s choices ultimately determine how much they earn and how government intervention in the workplace can backfire on women. 

  The stop-frame animation consists of a sequence of digital photographed frames, roughly one every second, creating the illusion of movement when the frames are played in a continuing sequence.

The Obama You Don’t Know … But Need To

  The Washington Examiner offers up a very informative refutation  to the myths and fables that constitute the (media propagated ) Obama legend .

  Well worth your time if you are interested in facts not fiction .

  ” Few if any of his predecessors took the oath of office with higher public hopes for his success than President Obama on Jan. 20, 2009. Millions of Americans hailed his election as an end to partisanship, a renewal of the spirit of compromise and a reinvigoration of
the nation’s highest ideals at home and abroad.

  Above all, as America’s first black chief executive, Obama symbolized the healing of long-festering wounds that were the terrible
national legacy of slavery, the
Reconstruction Era and Jim Crow.

  We would be, finally, one nation.
But after nearly four years in office, Obama has become a sharply polarizing figure. His admirers believe he deserves a special
place alongside Wilson, the Roosevelts and LBJ as one of the architects of benevolent government.

  His critics believe he is trying to remake America in the image of Europe’s social democracies, replacing America’s ethos of
independence and individual enterprise with a welfare state inflamed by class divisions. “

The facts about Ronald Reagan and tax hikes .

Ronald Reagan may have presided over the most significant tax reform effort in our nation’s
history, yet historical revisionists are attempting to besmirch that legacy — while using him as a
straw man against modern Republicans .
 
  Saying Ronald Reagan raised taxes is like saying Michael Jordan was a guy who struck out a lot — or that he was a failed baseball player: It’s
factually correct, but misleading, nonetheless.
  
    I’ve decided to examine Reagan’s tax cuts and tax increases in order to set the record straight and end this tomfoolery. “

  While I’m no “Birther” there can be no doubt that the preponderance of evidence can only lead one to the conclusion that Barack Hussein Obama has been anything but honest with the American people . His entire campaign , administration and the life leading up to today has been deliberately shrouded in secrecy . It’s no wonder that more and more people are having doubts about the man’s integrity and strength of character . 

   At this point each new revelation only muddies the waters and increases doubts about the man and his personal history . none of which has been in the least bit ameliorated by a compliant press that has completely abdicated it’s responsibility to be the public’s gatekeeper . It should be obvious to all that , not only do we have a chief executive with lots to hide , we also have a fourth estate without the slightest interest in the truth . 

   “So now Chris Matthews isn’t the only one experiencing a little thrill when he thinks about Barack (omit middle name) Obama. The recent revelation that from the early 1990s until the day before yesterday—or, to be more accurate, until Obama made his decision to run for president—a biographical pamphlet circulated by his literary agents described him as having been “born in Kenya” has been setting the world of Twitter atwitter.

What should we think about that? An agency spokesman who claims to have been responsible for the “born in Kenya” wheeze has publicly said that it was a mistake, a typographical error, a slip of the pen that just went “unchecked” for, um, sixteen-seventeen years. I can understand that. She meant to write “Hawaii” and wrote “Kenya” instead. Could happen to anyone. They look and sound enough alike, don’t they,  that no one noticed. You meant to write “there” and you wrote “their” instead. You meant to write “cup” and you wrote “floccinaucinihilipilification” instead. No one—no one at the literary agency, not the author himself—could be expected to notice. You understand that, right? “
