The Media on Dem Sex Scandals

This is hilarious. In light of Weinergate, the media starts defending why it's not covering the story. But this defense by CNN's Howard Kurtz has to be the worst defense ever. Newsbusters has the story:

CNN media analyst Howard Kurtz on Monday offered Bill Clinton, John Edwards, and Eliot Spitzer as examples of how the press don't give Democrats the benefit of the doubt when it comes to sex scandals.

Responding to questions about why the media have either ignored or taken sides on this weekend's brouhaha surrounding Congressman Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.), Kurtz sent the following absurd message via Twitter:

Pakistan - Christian Woman Gang Raped

Tombs desecrated. Please pray for all Christians in Muslim dominated countries.

Christian tombs were recently desecrated and a young Christian woman was gang-raped for an entire night. In both cases, police refused to file a First Information Report, allowing the culprits to escape justice. These are examples of the ordinary violence visited upon Pakistan’s Christian minority. Whether it involves Christian-owned land and property or individuals who are targeted because they are defenceless, victims will not find justice with the country’s legal system. Gradually, Pakistan’s ‘Islamisation’ slowly progresses, especially in the densely populated province of Punjab.

Prayers for Rachel and Family, Please

One of our favorite bloggers Rachel Balducci is in the E.R. with her daughters. If you have a moment please say a prayer:

18 Wild Facts about China

Kinda' scary stuff from Business Insider:

For all the crazy stories you've heard about China, the world's biggest country is going to keep blowing your mind.

The speed and size of economic development going in China right now has never happened before. In just ten years, a small emerging market has transformed into a geopolitical bruiser that can go toe-to-toe with Ben Bernanke.

Like it or not, China plays a critical role in the global economy from here out. Let's hope it hope doesn't crash.

Palin: Borrow from China to Aid Terror?

How come Sarah Palin always seems to be asking the right questions when nobody else is saying anything? Gateway Pundit has the story:

Sarah Palin asked about Obama’s strange foreign policy of borrowing money from the Chinese to pay to the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt.
From Sarah Palin’s Facebook Page:

Should we be borrowing money from China to turn around and give it to the Muslim Brotherhood?

Given that we are running massive deficits and are drowning in more than $14 trillion in debt, and despite not knowing who will rule Egypt until its election this fall, this strange strategy may be the end result given President Obama’s announcement that he is committing $2 billion to Egypt’s “new government.”

“IF WE ALLOW GAY MARRIAGE NEXT THING U KNOW PEOPLE WILL BE MARRYING GOLD FISH’ – Rick Santorum UO contributed $13,000 to this mans campaign” the singer and Hannah Montana star tweeted, in an apparent reference to the former Senator’s famous “man on dog” remark.

She has very long hair and haircuts are rare treats. She looked at hundreds of pictures, pondering this possiblity or that. You were one of several people we considered to undertake the task. Since you had done a darling job with Katie's hair a couple of years ago and you are close by and affordable, we decided to take a chance.

Austin – Texas Governor Rick Perry Thursday signed into law a measure requiring women seeking an abortion in the state to first get a sonogram.

Texas is one of several U.S. states with strong Republican legislative majorities proposing new restrictions on abortion this year. The Republican governor had designated the bill as an emergency legislative priority, putting it on a fast track.

Hitler's Army of Talking Dogs

Mary Meets Dolly writes:

One of the movements that scares me the most is the radical environmentalism that views humanity as a blight on the planet and that openly and not so openly desires the elinimation of mankind to better the rest of the earth. I believe the idea that we should prize animals and nature over human life is more prevalent than the average person realizes. It is a dangerous precedent to value human lives less than that of others in the animal kingdom. There was another culture that did just that. It was Nazi Germany. I was reminded of the animal loving Nazi's when I read this article about Hitler's attempt to create an army of talking dogs:

Planned Parenthood Defunding Roundup

Live Action reports that more states may defund Big Abortion:

It’s been an exciting 10 days or so for defunding Planned Parenthood on the state level. Indiana made history last week as the first state to end taxpayer subsidies of Planned Parenthood (to the tune of $3 million). Planned Parenthood sued for an injunction to block the law from taking effect–as if they were entitled to Hoosiers’ money–which a federal judge promptly rejected, allowing the defunding to commence immediately.

On Wednesday, we learned that Kansas is joining Indiana to become the second state defunding Planned Parenthood–in this case, stripping a little over $300,000 the abortion chain had been receiving from Title X.

[Pause for disapproval.]

Yes, I’m getting married in a year. And no, I’m not pregnant or at risk of that. I have no ulterior motives. I’m taking this step because I’ve found the man I want — and ought — to spend the rest of my life with, and I’m ready.

Finding Marizela

Michelle Malkin writes:

There’s a lot that’s been going on behind the scenes over the past two months since my cousin Marizela Perez disappeared from the University District in Seattle on March 5, 2011. As I mentioned last week, we gathered in Seattle on Mother’s Day for a community fundraiser and benefit concert/auction. There will be another South Jersey fundraiser/bake sale/raffle on May 22. Details here.

The Seattle Times has just posted a front-page piece by reporter Christine Clarridge on Marizela’s case and the plight of other families with missing young adults. Read it here. The story provides an in-depth, compassionate, and candid look at what parents go through in cases where the police have not found evidence of foul play. Suicide has been a primary assumption on the part of the police. But the case of young Joyce Chiang — whose death 12 years ago was just reclassified last week as a homicide by Washington police who mistakenly insisted the case was a suicide — shows the dangers of locking into assumptions without thoroughly investigating all leads.

When NBC “Meet the Press” host David Gregory asked former House Speaker Newt Gingrich whether he infused racism into a recent speech by referring to President Barack Obama as “the most successful food stamp president in American history,” Gregory raised a line of attack that had only previously been used by MSNBC and other left-leaning outlets, much to the chagrin of many conservative critics.

And one of those critics was former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin. On Fox News Channel’s “Hannity” on Wednesday, Palin offered her views on Gregory’s question. Her assessment: Gregory is the one displaying racism.

"People don't realize the risk we're taking by taking care of these patients," the newspaper quoted Dr. Albert Triana of South Miami as saying. "There's more risk of something going wrong and more risk of getting sued. Everything is more complicated with an obese patient in GYN surgeries and in [pregnancies]," he told the newspaper.

My Beef With Holden Caulfield

Because I went to Catholic high school, and because I really didn’t begin to read for pleasure until my sophomore year of college, I was late in coming to meet J.D. Salinger’s character, Holden Caulfield. My public school friends met Holden in their junior year of high school, and some of them still swear that The Catcher in the Rye is the best book they’ve ever read. I even recall reading an interview a few years ago of Slash, the former guitarist from Guns N’ Roses (and high school drop-out), who insisted that reading Catcher changed his life, as he found in Holden the only character that ever seemed to relate to his own awkward experience of adolescence.

Another Fake Hate Crime

Navy Rescinds Gay Marriage Order

Yesterday, J. E. Dyer unloaded on the Navy for its decision to allow chaplains to conduct same-sex marriages in jurisdictions which allow them. That policy didn’t last long. Today, the Navy has rescinded that order pending “further … policy review”

WaPo Critic: "Prom" Isn't Dirty Enough

Big Hollywood calls 'em on it:

It’s no stretch to say that Disney’s new film Prom is a squeaky clean affair, but according to Washington Post film critic Sandie Angulo Chen, this is apparently a bad thing. Prompting responses from Newsbusters and Christian Toto, Chen’s piece laments the lack of edge, angst and subversion in Prom, stating that the event is associated in cinema with things like the iconic pig’s blood prank from Carrie, and the race to lose one’s virginity in American Pie. She wonders why there are no violent outcasts or brooding bad boys that smoke cigarettes, as though the House of Mouse is a studio that has a reputation for delivering hard-hitting works of gritty social realism.

California Outlaws Flag Flying

The Weekly Standard reports:

In the small town of Orcutt, California, a private association has raised donations to erect a flagpole and monument between a highway exit and a park-and-ride lot, at the entrance to the community’s Old Town section. The pole would hang the American flag, encircled by five pillars, one each for the U.S. Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, and Coast Guard. The California Department of Transportation (CalTrans), however, has stymied the effort, calling it an impermissible act of “public expression.”

Hans Kung to the Rescue

LarryD writes on how Kung seeks to save the Church:

Hans Küng, the darling of the Catholyc crowd, is issuing a new book, called "Can The Church Still Be Saved?"

Gosh, what an awful title. Not because it might be true - which it isn't, because Christ promised that the gates of Hell shall not prevail against the Church - but because it paints an inaccurate picture of the Catholic Church, something so far from the truth it's nearly laughable. Saved? Saved from what? Saved from whom?

It's Never a Good Time to Have Kids

Jen Fulwiler writes:

There are some great discussions going on in the blog world right now about how much money you really need to have kids.

The Powerline Prize

You can win $100,000. Seriously:

Our nation faces an unprecedented financial crisis. Every knowledgeable citizen understands that the fiscal path we are on is unsustainable. Indefinite continuation of the status quo is not an option. There are only two possibilities: reform and collapse.

The massive federal debt that is now being incurred represents an existential threat to America's future. In a best-case scenario, it will saddle our children with financial obligations that will cripple their ability to prosper over the remainder of this century.

Belief in PBS is Just Like a Religion

Pro-Abort Indicted for Terroristic Threats

You mean, it wasn't those crazy pro-lifers threatening the poor pro-aborts. I'm shocked. Shocked I say:

The FBI has charged the 49-year-old self-proclaimed “pro-choice terrorist” with six counts of communicating interstate threats against pro-lifers.

Same Sex Marriages OK in Naval Chapels

How long until those clergymen who won't perform same sex marriages are ousted? A decade?

Anticipating the elimination of the military ban on homosexuality, the Office of the Chief of Navy Chaplains has decided that same-sex couples in the Navy will be able to get married in Navy chapels, and that Navy chaplains will be allowed to perform the ceremonies -- if homosexual marriage is legal in the state where the unions are to be performed.

Nothing More Powerful than a Mother's Prayers

I can't tell you how many people believe that their mother's prayers saved them in some very real way. Cubachi has a great vid:

Eduardo Verástegui: There is nothing more powerful than the prayers of a mother

“I realized I was empty” said the famous Mexican actor and producer Eduardo Verástegui when he was in the top of his career in Latin America. Yet, as he tried to transition to American films, he felt unrewarded in a personal sense.

This interview is several years old. Verástegui was in promotion of his movie, “Bella.” But I think this interview is brilliant for Mother’s Day.

In this interview with CBN, he talked about his past and how his soul lacked fulfillment. His mother often prayed to God so that her son can find Christ again.

Planned Parenthood Director Now Judge

The usual suspects:

Senate Democrats were able to confirm the former director of Planned Parenthood of Rhode Island to a lifetime federal judgeship after 11 Republicans voted to close debate on the nomination and allow it to come up for a final vote.

What Would Jesus Cut?

Dr. Shawn Ritenour writes at Catholic Lane:

That is the question asked by the left-leaning Christian organization, Sojourners, in its campaign of the same name. It is a most appropriate question given the battle over the budget and given this time of year, not long after the most holy holiday of the year for Christians.

Sojourners claims that, despite record budget deficits and national debt, reducing subsidies for things like vaccines and bed nets in Africa, school lunch programs, early childhood education, and income maintenance in the United States is immoral. Indeed, such subsidies, Sojourners says, “are dollars we can’t afford to not invest.”

I Didn't Know There'd Be Math

Jimmy Akin must be pretty darn smart. He's trying to figure out the year of Christ's birth. I tried to follow it but I passed out twice and wet myself the second time. I'm going to assume he's onto something:

A few days ago I blogged about my discovery that the Christmas Proclamation of the Birth of Christ has a not-so-great translation in the United States.

The same day I made that unfortunate discovery, I also made a fortunate one!

As I mentioned previously, we have multiple lines of evidence converging to show that Jesus was born in the year 3/2 B.C.

There are multiple sources from the early Church (around a dozen) that show this to be the case. While there are a tiny number of sources suggesting other years, the overwhelming majority indicate 3/2 B.C. as being the correct time frame for Our Lord's birth.

How Saint Helen Found the True Cross

Taylor Marshall writes:

In order to squash Christian devotion to Christ in Jerusalem, the pagan Romanserected shrines over the Christian holy sites (in about AD 146). This is well documented both historically and archeologically.

Saint Helen came to Jerusalem in 326 after she had a dream about the true cross of our Lord Jesus Christ. She felt that she had been divinely appointed to find our Lord's life-giving cross.

Mitch Daniels Takes Manhattan

Jenifer Rubin reports strike two against Mitch Daniels:

Earlier in this campaign cycle, feature stories in the conservative Weekly Standard was the kiss, if not of death, then of serious political injury, for GOP presidential contenders. Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour got tangled up on the race issue. Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels made the now infamous “social truce” gaffe. But now it’s a liberal publication that is likely to give Daniels’s presidential boosters fits.

The New Yorker’s Hendrik Hertzberg explains that Daniels didn’t go to the Tea Partyers or to the National Rifle Association for a testing-the-waters confab. Instead, he went to Manhattan:

Herman Cain Wins First Debate?

Matt Lewis of The Daily Caller writes:

I’m always skeptical of Frank Luntz’s televised focus groups, but he obviously got it right last night (inasmuch as his results confirmed my predictions).

As you may recall, prior to the debate I wrote that Herman Cain is, clearly the best orator in the bunch. And the fact that he will be competing for attention with just four other candidates means he will gain a tremendous amount of exposure in this nationally-televised debate.

Show me the Bloody

Jim Geraghty wants the Osama pics. I agree.

Well, it didn’t take long for President Obama to obliterate those warm feelings he generated on Sunday night. From the moment we heard the news, I’ll bet some not-insignificant percentage of the American public said, “I want to see the body.” Not because we’re a bunch of voyeurs, but because we’ve been through these false alarms with disturbing regularity since 9/11. We think we get a guy, and then we don’t. We had several false alarms with Saddam Hussein, and when he was captured, they showed a short video of him getting checked out by doctors.

What’s that, Mr. President? The photos are “very graphic”? So was watching people jump to their deaths from the blazing Twin Towers, you hyperactive condescending nanny.

Pence to Run for Gov.

Indiana's lucky. Cubachi reports:

Pence will run for Governor of Indiana. The website is up now.

The principled, stalwart conservative Republican told supporters on a conference call Thursday that he will seek the office currently held by Gov. Mitch Daniels. Most expected Pence to run after he ruled out a White House bid and resigned his No. 3 GOP House leadership position.

Pence is a favorite in the race because he has a huge base of supporters, name recognition, and campaign cash.

Can Christians Preach Outside a Mosque?

When rights and hypersensitivity to Islam collide. Check out this excellent piece at American Thinker about a case in Philadelphia:

Law enforcement scrutiny, detainment by police, and a court date to answer trumped-up charges: these are the consequences of preaching Christianity to Muslims not only throughout much of the Islamic world, but sometimes even in America as well.

The most infamous example occurred last June, when four missionaries from Acts 17 Apologetics were arrested and charged with breach of peace while they calmly discussed their faith with Muslims at the Arab International Festival in Dearborn, Michigan. Armed with self-recorded video showing that they had acted in a civil fashion, the Christians were vindicated by a jury several months later.

An important but virtually unnoticed Philadelphia case from 2010 bears striking similarities to the one in Dearborn, including police shutting down religious speech directed toward Muslims and a prosecutor filing charges patently at odds with video evidence.

300 Christians Slaughtered

It all seemed to start with the words "Allahu Akhbar" being announced over Mosque loudspeakers. Hmmm. I wonder what their motivation was. Weasel Zippers reports:

Christian leaders have called for an investigation into political violence that targeted churches and Christian homes, with at least one clergyman saying yesterday that Islamic attacks following the election of a Christian president were premeditated.

Pastor Emmanuel Nuhu Kure of Throneroom Trust Ministry based in Kafanchan in Kaduna state, reportedly said at a press briefing that the religious component of the political violence should not be discounted.

The Distorter Cheers Osama's Death

Jay Anderson read Michael Sean Winters so you don't have to. That Jay's a heckuva nice guy:

Of all the responses in the Catholic blogosphere to Osama bin Laden's death, few have matched the sort of jingoistic and nationalistic bravado that we've seen in the secular media and on the streets of New York City and Washington, D.C. The overwhelming majority of Catholic bloggers have been quite circumspect and reflective upon the killing of America's public enemy #1, soberly asking themselves what is the appropriate Christian response to the sudden, violent death of the mastermind of 9/11.

The most prominent exception to this general rule - the one high-profile Catholic blogger who openly relished (indeed, encouraged celebrating) bin Laden's demise - came from what might seem like a surprising source. The National Catholic Reporter, the newspaper of record for the Catholic left, routinely excoriates the Catholic blogosphere for what it sees as pro-Republican, militaristic, and jingoistic nationalism. And yet, it was the Reporter's most high-profile blogger, Michael Sean Winters, who used his blog, the so-called "Distinctly Catholic", to do a tap dance on the freshly killed body of bin Laden:

Caviezel: Rejected By Hollywood

Other than misunderstanding what Caviezel says about Mel Gibson as "less than positive" I found this story from the Daily Caller interesting:

Jim Caviezel, who played Jesus Christ in Mel Gibson’s “The Passion of the Christ,” says his acting career has suffered since the movie’s 2004 release, reports the Orlando Sentinel.

Speaking to a crowd at the First Baptist Church of Orlando on Saturday, Caviezel said he’s been “rejected in [his] own industry” and cast in forgettable films. But he said Gibson predicted this would happen and warned him that the film role could be his final one.
