  • Students Tear Down Anti-Socialism Display, but UNC Charlotte Won’t Investigate

    Universities may not target unpopular speech on campus often, but when they fail to protect it, the results are similar to officially silencing speech. A recent example of this lack of effort to protect comes from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, where an anti-socialism display was destroyed on campus within a day after the Young Americans for Freedom campus group erected it. I am the founding chairwoman of YAF at UNC Charlotte. I started this group to bring together students who are committed to free speech and the belief in a free marketplace of ideas. Our club hosts...

    Russian troops clad in World War II-era uniforms marched across Moscow's Red Square in a reconstruction of a wartime parade on Thursday. The 1941 October Revolution Parade has become a symbol of Soviet valor and tenacity in the face of overwhelming odds. Thursday's re-enactment of the military event marks the 78th anniversary of march on the 7 November 1941.

    Outgoing Rep. Will Hurd (R-Texas), the only black Republican in the House, warned in a new interview that the GOP needs to adapt and start looking like the rest of America or "there won’t be a Republican Party in this country." In an interview with Axios that aired Sunday, Hurd said that "we know where the trends are going" regarding demographics in America and that Republicans "know what we need to do."

  • Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan? More like Noam Chomsky’s Jack Ryan

    I know you’re not supposed to review a TV show on the basis of a single episode, but I don’t think I’m going to make it past episode one of the second season of Jack Ryan. Its full title is Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan but it might as well be called Noam Chomsky’s Jack Ryan. Take the fictional version of Venezuela where most of the action is set. Its economy is in the toilet, the people are starving, and it’s on the verge of becoming a failed state. So far, so accurate. But the reason this Venezuela is such a...

    Green New Dealers have convinced themselves that our planet faces an imminent, existential, manmade climate cataclysm – that can be prevented solely and simply by replacing fossil fuels with biofuel, wind, solar and battery energy. They achieve this state of absolute certainty largely by propagating constant scare stories while ignoring and suppressing contradictory evidence and viewpoints.They deliberately and deceptively talk about “carbon pollution.” Carbon is soot – what our cars, factories and power plants now emit in very small quantities. The honest, accurate term is carbon dioxide: the colorless, odorless, invisible gas that we exhale and plants need to grow, by...

    LeBron James said he thinks Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey "wasn't educated on the situation at hand" when he tweeted in support of Hong Kong. James told reporters Monday that people need to be careful about what they tweet and say as there can be ramifications. "I don't want to get into a ... feud with Daryl Morey, but I believe he wasn't educated on the situation at hand and he spoke," James said. He added that people could have been harmed "not only financially but physically, emotionally, spiritually." LeBron tweeted later clarifying his comments saying he did not...

    If you watched ESPN yesterday, you saw the network repeatedly attempt to grapple with the story of Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey creating an international incident after tweeting and then deleting his support for pro-democracy protestors in Hong Kong. You heard talking head after talking head castigate Morey for sending the tweet, speculation over whether he’d keep his job, speculation about the sincerity of his convictions, discussions about what this meant for the Rockets’ bottom line, the observation that it’s unreasonable to expect for-profit companies like the NBA to act morally, and the non-take that cowing to China is...

    On October 4, various left-wing Hollywood celebrities and The Democratic Coalition announced the creation of their “Impeachment Task Force.” According to Newsweek, this nutty group of liberal activists from La La Land are "hellbent on holding president 'accountable for his betrayal of America.'" Who’s on the Impeachment Task Force? The usual suspects you see called out on Newsbusters practically every day: Tom Arnold, Debra Messing, Alyssa Milano, Rosie O'Donnell, Ron Perlman, and George Takei. This motley crew would be better described as the Trump Derangement D-Listers for the way they regularly beclown themselves on Twitter about politics. And now they've...
  • Bernie Sanders Should Be Grateful We Don’t Have ‘Medicare for All’

    Within hours of suffering chest pains Tuesday night, Bernie Sanders had stents inserted to relieve the blockage in an artery. He’s lucky. Because if Sanders lived under “Medicare for All,” things likely would not have gone as well. Sanders, along with every other Democrat pushing “Medicare for All” and its variants, constantly bleat about how the U.S. spends far more on health care but gets worse results than countries such as Canada or the U.K. But the quality measures – infant mortality and longevity – are notoriously unreliable for international comparisons. Infant mortality rates depend on how countries measure them,...

    The Los Angeles Police Department has opened an inquiry after a recruitment ad went up on the right-wing website Breitbart, saying such a job listing would conflict with the department’s “core values.” Critics have repeatedly accused Breitbart of running racist and sexist content over the past decade, pointing to articles with such headlines as “The Smartest People in the World Are All Men,” “Birth Control Makes Women Unattractive and Crazy,” and “Data: Young Muslims Are a Ticking Time Bomb in the West.”

    National Review ^ | September 6, 2019 | JONAH GOLDBERG
    The idea that all life on this planet is in jeopardy if America doesn’t wean itself from fossil fuels is just hyperbole. ‘Climate change is an existential crisis,” Senator Elizabeth Warren declared Tuesday, unveiling her plan to fight climate change in advance of CNN’s interminable townhall event on the topic with ten Democratic presidential candidates. The use of the term “existential crisis” is ironic. No doubt, they mean “existential threat,” i.e. that global warming threatens to end life on earth. It doesn’t. But we’ll get back to that in a second. The term “existential crisis” comes from psychology or philosophy,...

    Poland's freedom icon Lech Walesa on Thursday said the United States was "no longer the main global power" in political and moral leadership ahead of a visit by President Donald Trump. Trump is due in Poland on Sunday for ceremonies marking 80 years since the outbreak of World War II. "President Trump, I urge you to regain the position of world leader for the USA," Walesa said in an interview published in Thursday's edition of Poland's centrist Rzeczpospolita daily. "The world needs the leadership of the USA. Moral and political leadership, not only economic and military leadership," added Walesa, a...

    Over 100 people packed the lobby of a San Francisco public high school to view a controversial mural criticized as racist and degrading for its depiction of black and Native American people. Officials allowed visitors to see the "Life of Washington" mural for two hours on Thursday after the San Francisco School Board voted in June to paint over the 83-year-old fresco. Since then, there has been much push back about the decision, including an effort to include a measure on the 2020 ballot to preserve the mural and a protest petition signed by more than 400 academics.
