And the only question is whether Brazil will muster the spine to stand up for Human Rights — as they have every legal and moral right to.

…[W]hen told of an actual Sati [widow-burning] about to take place, [General Sir Charles James Napier] informed those involved that he would stop the sacrifice. The priests complained to him that this was a customary religious rite, and that customs of a nation should be respected. As recounted by his brother William, he replied:

“Be it so. This burning of widows is your custom; prepare the funeral pile. But my nation has also a custom. When men burn women alive we hang them, and confiscate all their property. My carpenters shall therefore erect gibbets on which to hang all concerned when the widow is consumed. Let us all act according to national customs.”


Somehow the U.N. keeps on finding us worse than the members on it’s human rights council, because of that pay gap that doesn’t actually exist.

Functions only via enslavement of the doctors.

Apparently, the only thing Saudi women are allowed to show in public is now also forbidden.

Iraq’s got a reality TV show where terrorist prisoners are forced to confront the victims of their crimes.

Of course the “Human rights” groups say this is entirely inhumane to the terrorists as it humiliates them.

Frankly, I think a lot of stupidity and injustice in the world would disappear if we brought back humiliation as an appropriate punishment to certain crimes.

Good for them. Not that I think the report is going to do anything. Still, it’d be nice if the recommendation that all top NK officials face ICC trials meant that any of them that stepped foot outside of NK got arrested on the spot.


In preparation for Sochi 2014.

They observed a moment of silence for Hugo Chavez.

From an escapee.

More White House Blame Game:

It was the White House that leaked the Libyan Right’s activists, not Congress.


Yeah, that’s not right.

About That Kony Video

Yeah, the guy should be stopped. But why aren’t the Taliban soldiers getting children to blow themselves up receiving the same attention?

To their almost certain deaths.

In her quest to support universal human values of life and liberty, Ayaan Hirsi Ali has committed what many on the left see as the worst sin: siding with conservatives.

Several journalists can’t seem to handle that Gingrich is willing to speak frankly about Sharia.
