OUTFOXED: Rupert Murdoch's War on Journalism Hot Air New Age The New Age movement is a Western spiritual movement that developed in the second half of the 20th century. Its central precepts have been described as "drawing on both Eastern and Western spiritual and metaphysical traditions and infusing them with influences from self-help and motivational psychology, holistic health, parapsychology, consciousness research and quantum physics". The term New Age refers to the coming astrological Age of Aquarius. The movement aims to create "a spirituality without borders or confining dogmas" that is inclusive and pluralistic. It holds to "a holistic worldview", emphasising that the Mind, Body, and Spirit are interrelated and that there is a form of monism and unity throughout the universe. It attempts to create "a worldview that includes both science and spirituality" and embraces a number of forms of mainstream science as well as other forms of science that are considered fringe.

OWS and the Progressive Fantasy Talking about policies and programs doesn't do it: progressives (have) always been at our best when we speak from a place of strong moral authority, rooted deeply in a daring vision of the kind of world we'd like to create. If we can't envision that world clearly in our own minds, we certainly can't describe it with conviction to other people. [Italics added.] She is absolutely correct. Her statement is the perfect analysis of progressive politics. Recapping Robinson's statement in different words, she paints progressives as: Coming from a place of self-designated moral supremacy;Having a utopian, audacious, and reckless vision of the world they want to create but are unable to describe; andLacking a roadmap of how to get there. Similarly, from Benjamin R. The basic difference between Progressive politicians and pundits is simply the fact that the OWS crowd is brand new and spontaneous, whereas the politicians and pundits have been perfecting their confusion for over a century.
The Gospel Coalition JohnPilger.com - the films and journalism of John Pilger Pat Dollard Author: European Antichrist looking more and more unlikely Text smaller Text bigger With Europe on the verge of economic collapse, what about all those popular predictions that the European Union would become the world’s political powerhouse, giving rise to the endtimes prophecies of a world dictator known to Bible students as the Antichrist? Joel Richardson, author of a best-selling book on Bible prophecy, says atheists will have a field day mocking Christians for the incorrect interpretations about the last days. “Nearly twenty years ago, I intently watched as a very popular Christian television prophecy teacher declared, ‘the present formation of the European Union is literally the fulfillment of Bible prophecy right before our eyes!’” he writes in a commentary today in WND. Richardson said the formation of the EU in 1993 spurred even more prophecy teachers to set their sights on Europe. He also expects many Christians to become disillusioned as the EU fights for its very survival, rather than for the global dominance that was predicted.
OWS: Easy Prey They are as dumb as bag of rocks, unable to articulate any strategy or goal. They are violent and cowardly at the same time, in the manner possible only to mobs. They are supported by both the Nazis and the communists -- quite a trick, even in this day and age. The whiff of outside direction and funding is too strong to ignore, with a mild but distinctive tang of paprika. When has such an easy target been presented by the left? There have been comments, coverage, jibes, and what have you, but mostly with the tone you'd expect in response to any everyday left-wing barbarity. At this point, any attack on the 99ers automatically hits the Democrats. What is the problem here? This is one of those things where it's likely that a number of explanations is required. These are all (except perhaps the last) virtues, and should be accorded the respect due to virtues. Abdication of authority was the hallmark of the '60s. J.R.
ACLU Leaders Are Supporting Censorship of Israeli Speakers :: Hudson New York The international campaign to prevent speakers from delivering pro-Israel talks at universities has been assisted by leaders of the American Civil Liberties Union—an organization that is supposed to protect freedom of speech for all. The method used to silence these speakers and preclude their audiences from hearing their message is exemplified by a now infamous event at the University of California at Irvine. Michael Oren—a distinguished scholar and writer, a moderate supporter of the two-state solution, and now Israel's Ambassador to the United States—was invited to speak. The Muslim Student Union set out to prevent him from delivering his talk Here is the way Erwin Chemerinksy, Dean of the law school, described what the students did: "The Muslim Student Union orchestrated a concerted effort to disrupt the speech. One student after another stood and shouted so that the ambassador could not be heard. "The students' behavior was wrong and deserves punishment. The opposite is true.
The Zeitgeist Film Series Gateway | Zeitgeist: The Movie, Zeitgeist: Addendum, Zeitgeist Moving Forward Pedigree of the Coming World Leader? The Genealogy of the Antich Waiting in the wings of the forthcoming global turmoil is the Man with a Plan--the one whom the world will welcome to resolve its many problems. The Bible gives us many provocative clues to his identity1, and from many prophetic glimpses his genealogical line may prove to be traceable. Daniel Chapters 7, 8 and 11 describe the career of Alexander the Great and his successors so vividly they constitute some of the most remarkable prophecies in the Bible. We also find that Alexander's four generals--Lysimachus, Cassander,Ptolemy, and Seleucus--divide the empire after his death just as the passages indicated.2 As Israel is sandwiched by the subsequent tensions between Ptolemy (Egypt) to the south and Seleucus (Syria) to the north, it is also amazing to note the precision with which Daniel records their respective successors in Chapter 11.3 The Seleucid ruler that figures so prominently in Biblical studies is, of course, Antiochus IV, who also adopted the label Epiphanes or Coming One.
Ed Driscoll » The New York Times’ Epic Fail Yes, I realize you could fill whole books with the subject of that headline, but let’s look at one story in particular. I started to get slightly huffy over this passage on Occupy Wall Street in the New York Times… There is a through-the-looking glass element to some of the criticism. The Daily Caller reported that based on photographs, the Occupy forces were almost exclusively white (numerous studies and polls have shown the Tea Party, too, has proportionately few members of minority groups). The Tea Party, too, was vague about its frustrations in its early days, or contradictory, as in the sign at one rally that was cited as evidence that the Tea Party itself was uneducated and uninformed: “Keep Your Government Hands Off My Medicare.”At Tea Party protests you could find the kind of one-off cranks that conservatives have found at Occupy rallies — Tea Party organizers would explain them as fringe-y interlopers. Kate Zernike of the New York Times, are you in the room?
Delaware Abortion Regulations Pushed After Gosnell Horror by Steven Ertelt | Dover, DE | LifeNews.com | 2/22/11 1:01 PM State Share A national pro-life organization is working with local pro-life groups and elected officials in Delaware to promote better regulation of the abortion industry in the state following the horrors found at the Kermit Gosnell abortion center in nearby Philadelphia. Gosnell is the abortion business owner who ran one of the most filthy and unregulated abortion centers ever exposed and his shoddy practices resulted in the deaths of and injury to women from botched abortions. He also engaged in a brutal practice of live-birth abortions that saw him purposely prematurely birth babies and, afterwards, he would “snip” their spinal cords with medical scissors. Gosnell not only operated in southeast Pennsylvania, but he was employed at the Delaware abortion facility known as Atlantic Women’s Medical Services in Wilmington and Dover, Delaware and where he would work one day per week to do abortions.
