THE VICE PRESIDENT -GASP! – Early this week Vice President Biden referred to members of the Tea Party as “terrorists.” Perhaps this is why he needs the extra layer of protection of renting a property he owns to the Secret Service agents who protect his life. The Washington Times reported that Biden so far has charged the Secret Service more than $13,000 just this year. Under a contract, the Secret Service will pay the Vice President a total of $66,000 by the end of 2013. The property in question is a cottage next to his waterfront home outside Wilmington, Delaware

NYC: YES TO MOSQUE, NO TO CHURCH – While New York City officials push to build a mosque at Ground Zero, they also continue to do everything in their power to stop the rebuilding of the 95-year-old St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church.

The site has links to stories from all over the world of Islamic terror attacks that are not reported in the United States, stories like the one that follows.
MUSLIM MAN’S HONOR KILLING OF SIX DAUGHTERS – Yes … you read it right. He killed six of his daughters all on the same day in July. He killed two of them because one of their brothers reported to him that they were dating men. He killed the other four because, he claimed, they allowed the family to be dishonored by protecting the two sisters who were dating. Read more
EGYPT MOVES FURTHER TOWARD ISLAMIC REPUBLIC – After “prayers” last Friday, Tahrir Square in Cairo was full of tens of thousands of people, mainly Islamists, who called for the implementation of Islamic law in Egypt. Meanwhile just days later on August 1st, Egyptian army tanks entered Tahrir on the first day of Ramadan and evicted the last of the “liberal” protesters who were for the most part secularists. Shop keepers and locals cheered as those who had wanted a broad based democracy were either arrested or pushed out of the main square. Arab spring or Islamic fall?
