  • New School History Book Paints Trump as Racist and Extremist

    Freedom Project ^ | April 17, 2018 | Alex Newman
    The new Advanced Placement U.S. History book is under fire across America for, among other scandals, portraying President Donald Trump's supporters as ignorant old racists. It also paints Trump as a racist and highlights his alleged “extremism,” without explaining what, exactly, the far-left author considers to be “extreme.” “Most thought that Trump was too extreme a candidate to win the nomination, but his extremism, his anti establishment rhetoric and, some said, his not-very-hidden racism connected with a significant number of primary voters – more voters than any other single Republican candidate,” claimed the author, without explaining how Trump could win...

    At least three civilians were killed and several others wounded on Monday night when two cars expoloded in the Syrian town of Douma, Eastern Ghouta, the site of a suspected chemical attack last Saturday. "Two cars exploded in Douma, which have killed three civilians and injured a number of others," local sources told al-Araby al-Jadeed The sources accused Syrian regime forces, who have now taken full control of the town, of carrying out the attack in order to delay the international investigation into the suspected use of chemical weapons by the Russian-backed Syrian regime which killed at least 49 civilians...

    ... Trump responded as he usually does: by doubling down. And he did it, as he usually does, on Twitter, tweeting the following: “Media fell all over themselves criticizing what Donald Trump ‘may have insinuated about @POTUS.’ But he’s right:” The tweet included a link to this story that appeared on Breitbart: an account of a 2012 intelligence report from the Defense Intelligence Agency predicting the rise of the Islamic State in Syria – and showing how US policy deliberately ignored and even succored it. Secured by Judicial Watch thanks to the Freedom of Information Act, the document says it’s...

A note from the author: I apologize, in advance, for the sheer length of this column, but since it addresses the sell-out of basic libertarian principles by people and institutions who purport to speak in its name, I thought it important to address these questions thoroughly, with extensive quotations from those I name. Too bad, in attacking Antiwar.com, these pathetic losers didn't do the same – but then what can one expect from craven...
  • Russia's Mind Games: Alexander Dugin and Russia's War of Ideas

    World Affairs Journal ^ | Spring 2015 | A. Tolstoy, E. McCaffray
    Alexander Dugin is the intellectual who has Vladimir Putin’s back in the emerging ideological conflict between Russia and the West. At home, Putin uses him to create a nationalist, anti-liberal voting bloc, while abroad Dugin is the lynchpin of numerous irregular networks of anti-liberal political resistance and sabotage. No individual better represents the tactics of the current Russian regime. Since the late 1990s, Dugin has organized his views into a geostrategic ideology and a complex political metaphysics known respectively as Neo-Eurasianism and Fourth Political Theory. The former posits an ongoing archetypal clash between land and maritime civilizations and holds that...

    • Poll finds attitude to ban on military-style weapons has striking age divide • Experts say finding could be driven by video games such as Call of Duty A large majority of Americans say they support a ban on the sale of assault weapons, a category of politically controversial guns that includes the AR-15-style rifles that have become the weapon of choice for mass shooters. Opposition to an assault weapon ban was strongest among Republicans and among self-identified registered voters 18-34, the poll found. Unlike older Americans, millennials were closely divided on their support for an assault weapon ban, with...

    In an interview with Wired magazine, Mark Zuckerberg revealed Facebook’s political agenda — he wants to curb free speech and free expression on the platform in exchange for “safety.” From the Wired interview: I think at the heart of a lot of these issues we face are tradeoffs between real values that people care about. You know, when you think about issues like fake news or hate speech, right, it’s a tradeoff between free speech and free expression and safety and having an informed community. These are all the challenging situations that I think we are working to try to...

    Regions where voters have more neurotic personality traits were more likely to vote for Donald Trump in the United States or for the Brexit campaign in the United Kingdom, revealing a new trend that could help explain the rise of fearmongering populist political campaigns across the world, according to new research published in the journal Social Psychological and Personality Science. Researchers analyzed personality traits from online surveys of more than 3 million people in the United States and more than 417,000 people in the United Kingdom. Election data was compiled from public sources. "Our study reveals how neuroticism or psychological...

    Sigh. The lunacy continues. The White House released some proposals for school safety over the weekend. But it isn't good enough for the little ones who are being handled by the professional leftists. The gun grabbing must continue, insists CNN's favorite Stoneman Douglas students. One of these kids even said Trump was "afraid" of the NRA. AND I saw somewhere else that the bald headed girl Emma got the key to the city of Miami Beach because she led some homosexual group at the high school. What that has to do with gun control I don't know, but the media...

    Former President Barack Obama is in advanced negotiations with Netflix to produce a series of high-profile shows that will provide him a global platform after his departure from the White House, according to people familiar with the discussions. Under terms of a proposed deal, which is not yet final, Netflix would pay Mr. Obama and his wife, Michelle, for exclusive content that would be available only on the streaming service, which has nearly 118 million subscribers around the world. The number of episodes and the formats for the shows have not been decided.

    Then came the month of March, the harbinger of spring. For many in the world this is a month of joy, but for the Serbs it is a painful reminder. In March 1999, NATO's criminal snake unjustly attacked then Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. The attack on Yugoslavia dealt a criminal blow to the Serbs and Serbia. The incessant genocide All the poison they had and the radioactive bombs NATO brought down on the Serbian villages and cities. They poisoned rivers, fields and meadows. The forests withered from the dumped poison. The number of cancer cases of women, children, men has...

    Since April 20, 1999, when 12 students and a teacher were gunned down at a high school in Colorado, I have covered most mass shootings in America in some capacity, and I have never seen anything like these Parkland kids. This one seems different—these young survivors are speaking out, and calling out the politicians who have done nothing for the last two decades. When Columbine struck, I remember spending all afternoon and most of the first evening outside the school with students, and policy was the last thing on anyone’s mind. I was with them every day that week, and...

    [snip] The aim of the factory’s work was either to influence voters or to undermine their faith in the U.S. political system, the 37-page indictment states. Putin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters Monday that while the indictment focuses on “Russian nationals,” it gives “no indication that the Russian government was involved in this in any way.” Peskov reasserted that Moscow did not interfere in the U.S. election. Mindiyarov, who failed the language exam needed to get a job on the Internet Research Agency’s Facebook desk, where the pay was double than the domestic side of the factory. The sleek operation...

    PARKLAND, Fla. 4:30 p.m. A law enforcement official says he knows of “no known ties” between the suspect who confessed to a deadly mass shooting at a Florida high school and a white supremacist group. Lt. Grady Jordan is a spokesman for the Leon County Sheriff’s Office in Tallahassee, where the white nationalist militia known as the Republic of Florida is based. Jordan said Thursday that his office has arrested militia leader Jordan Jereb at least four times since January 2014 and has been monitoring the group’s membership. He says his office has “very solid” information on the group and...

    The Federalist ^ | Feburary 15,2018 | Lee Smith
    This Isn’t the 27-Year-Olds’ Fault I’ve argued over the last year that the phony collusion narrative is a symptom of the structural problems with the press. The rise of the Internet, then social media, and gross corporate mismanagement damaged traditional media institutions. As newspapers and magazines around the country went bankrupt when ownership couldn’t figure out how to make money off the new digital advertising model, an entire generation of journalistic experience, expertise, and ethics was lost. It was replaced, as one Obama White House official famously explained, by 27-year-olds who “literally know nothing.” But the first vehicles of the...

    Many of America’s leading television networks did a poor job of covering climate change last year, even as the newly minted Trump administration worked to unravel regulations meant to tackle the phenomenon and the U.S. was pummeled by a series of record-breaking natural disasters, according to a new report. The group Media Matters for America analyzed climate change coverage on major broadcasters’ nightly news programs and Sunday morning political shows - including those on ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox News and PBS - over the course of 2017. While a total of 260 minutes were devoted to climate change during the...

    To Palestinians and their supporters, hers is the face of a hero, a new symbol of resistance. But many Israelis call 17-year-old Ahed Tamimi "Shirley Temper" after viewing videos showing the girl angrily lashing out at Israeli soldiers. The long-running Israeli-Palestinian conflict has always been about competing narratives, and in this age of social media and viral videos, Ahed's defiance has made her into something of a star in the Arab world and beyond. The blond-haired, blue-eyed Palestinian girl spent her 17th birthday inside an Israeli military prison last week, where she, along with her mother, await trial on Feb....
