The New York City Third World Holding System

prison bars hands A report on the bail system shows the Big Apple is a third world nightmare bureaucracy for anyone swept into its jails. Mark Horne has written about a horrifying case of a youth spending years in Rikers Island without ever getting a trial. That story had a horrible ending since the victim committed suicide. But while what happened to that kid might be an extreme instance, it nevertheless represents many tyrannies that people suffer at the hands of a broken system that seems to belong in a third Read more [...] Continue reading →

The Revenge of Death Panels against Sarah Palin

Medicare Cuts Demonize Sarah Palin and pay doctors to talk to people about “end of life” care. NPR is the master at promoting the government’s endgame. Here’s how you do hardcore government propaganda: “Medicare Says Doctors Should Get Paid To Discuss End-Of-Life Issues.” In this case, the propagandist is NPR. Your tax dollars at works, along with donations from Liberals and organizations like the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Remember so-called death panels? When Congress debated the Affordable Read more [...] Continue reading →

Islamic Baby Name Is the Most Popular in Britain

islam_will_dominate_world1 If an Islamic baby name is more popular than any other name for new children, what can we expect in the next generation in England? It is pretty interesting that the headline gives the reader no indication of the content of the story: “Amelia and Oliver top 62,000 DIFFERENT baby names in Britain.” The subhead was quite misleading: “PARENTS chose 62,000 different names for babies born last year as Britain becomes ever more multicultural, research revealed today.” The story doesn’t Read more [...] Continue reading →

Another Global Warming Polar Expedition Delayed by Ice

polar bears roasting penguin Once again a ship trying to investigate global warming runs into thick ice that is not supposed to be there. Perhaps the most entertaining thing to happen in climate “science” happened in December 2013 when a ship sailed toward Antarctica so the crew could document the effects of global warming. Tad Cronn posted about what happened: It's not exactly the wacky adventures of the passengers of the SS Minnow, but the team of New Zealand researchers on board the Akademik Shokalskiy, that got Read more [...] Continue reading →

Another Cost of Immigration: Court Interpreters

 It is toxic that we are only permitted to discuss immigration as a human rights issue and not acknowledge the cost of immigration. I am not against immigration. But the present environment in which immigration is discussed is completely toxic. The Democrat amnesty objective is obviously aimed at harvesting new Democrat voters. The way the laws have been systematically broken rather than legally changed is an outrage. The Republican Establishment has not given us any better discussion about Read more [...] Continue reading →

Fast Food Business Owners and Employees Are in a Mutual Relationship

chickfilacombo A recent Chick-fil-A decision demonstrates that business owners are not opposed to their employees. The basic stance in the media and in politics has been that fast food business owners are the enemies and exploiters of their employees. Just like telling one lie demands a person make up other lies, so this myth creates others. If fast food business owners are exploiting their workers, this means that a free society is a place where mutually agreed upon payments are detrimental to one class of Read more [...] Continue reading →

How Rich Republicans Waste Their Money

RINOs Rich Republicans are about to see their funds used on an expensive TV campaign for Jeb Bush. I predict disappointing results. Since the money is coming from a Super PAC, I suppose other people besides rich Republicans might have donated to it. But I doubt their contributions are that significant. According to the Associated Press, “Pro-Bush super PAC spending $10M-plus on initial TV campaign.” The heavily funded super PAC backing Republican Jeb Bush will spend at least $10 million on television Read more [...] Continue reading →

Clean Energy Jobs Act: Take the Money and Run

sowell understand politics Taxes were raised on the promise that the Clean Energy Jobs Act would create jobs. Didn’t happen. No one in government cares. While crime is almost always an application of laziness, people who commit crimes for their primary or secondary income do often learn to work. They try not to get caught. They know it is possible that they might get caught. They have every incentive to be careful and cautious. People who work scams will try to avoid running into their earlier victims. They will move Read more [...] Continue reading →

Telegraph: Economic Doomsday Is Here

stock market crash The inevitable collapse of China is finally happening and with it comes economic doomsday — but we should welcome it. The Telegraph has an excellent account of what is happening in the world economy: “Doomsday clock for global market crash strikes one minute to midnight as central banks lose control.” Here is a video that illustrates the report: The article begins with an obvious whitewash: When the banking crisis crippled global markets seven years ago, central bankers stepped Read more [...] Continue reading →

The Secret Trade Deal for Europe

keeping secrets no The European Commission is taking steps to make sure their secret trade deal stays secret. It is a complete mockery of freedom and self-rule for laws to be made in secret and then imposed on an ignorant populace who is never allowed to know about them until after they are ratified. Yet that is precisely what we got in the United States with the Trade Promotion Authority, which was passed by Republicans and Democrats combined against the American people. As one of our writers said, in bitter sarcasm: Yes Read more [...] Continue reading →

New Book Provides Further Evidence US made ISIS

isis killing xians The US made ISIS in order to destroy Syria’s secular dictatorship, without caring about the Christians or others they knew would be raped, tortured, and murdered. I’ve already posted about how the US made ISIS by funding terrorists. We have seen how officials try to evade obvious questions when they are posed by reporters (which they do all too seldom). But now there is a new book out which documents more of the actions involved in taking a declining group, Al Qaeda in Iraq, and nourishing Read more [...] Continue reading →

Denying Theology Doesn’t Cancel Biology: Working Women Have a Harder Time Getting Pregnant

pregnant tees Working women whose jobs require more than forty hours a week take longer to conceive a child even when they are trying hard to do so. There is nothing ethically wrong with a woman working at a job for more than forty hours a week. Many women have no real choice. We all need income in order to live. But our society has tried to pretend that there are no costs to any choice that makes a woman more “empowered.” And while there is nothing wrong with working women, that doesn't mean there aren't Read more [...] Continue reading →
