    As we grow closer to the end of July, it means only one thing…it is almost time to go back to school. This year though, there is a new book that politics majors, particularly world politics majors, should read. The book is called Redefining Sovereignty. The book, edited by Orrin C. Judd, a blogger, includes writings from thirty individuals, each presenting their own views on the topic of sovereignty. Mr. Judd spoke about the book and the issues it covers recently at the Heritage Foundation. Mr. Judd was joined by three of the contributors, Paul Driessen of the Committee for...

    AXcess News) Washington - Max Keiser is a new kind of terrorist. He uses the Internet and boycotts to manipulate stock prices. In that way he forces corporations to comply with his brand of radical environmentalism and Sustainable Development. He puts his hands around corporate throats and squeezes until they comply with his demands. Max Keiser and his ilk hate business and they hate free enterprise and are using these tactics to redistribute wealth and cause chaos in the market place. Keiser's operation is called "KarmaBanque." That new age-focused name alone should give readers an idea of the wacky worldview...

    “The environmental movement I helped found has lost its objectivity, morality and humanity. The pain and suffering it is inflicting on families in developing countries must no longer be tolerated. This is the first book I’ve seen that tells the truth and lays it on the line. It’s a must-read for anyone who cares about people, progress and our planet.” – Patrick Moore, Greenpeace co-founder “Paul Driessen has given us an amazing tour de force. He explores one of today’s most perplexing problems: the environmentally sensitive rich demanding that the Third World’s poor forego feeding themselves, solving their health and...
  • Resurrecting the "Happy Darky"

    They've got rhythm. They've got watermelon. They've got quaint folk customs. So what need have they for jobs, for education, for civil rights? So went the "Happy Darky" myth, prevalent among well-off whites in the segregated South of half a century or so ago. The "Happy Darky" myth is being resurrected in more pernicious form by environmentalists. The introduction of electricity is "destroying" the cultures of the world's poor, said Gar Smith, who edits "The Edge," the online magazine of the San Francisco-based Earth Island Institute. With the introduction of electricity, African villagers spend too much time watching television and...

    Who could possibly object to Earth Day, that benign occasion on which we are encouraged to throw away our pesticides, clean up our environment, and contemplate the damage we have done to Mother Earth? Niger Innis, for one. Mr. Innis is neither a shill for industry nor a raging neo-con. He is the spokesman for the Congress of Racial Equality, a leading African-American advocacy group, and last week he and other black activists got together to explain exactly what is wrong with Earth Day. "We must stop trying to protect our planet from every imaginable, exaggerated or imaginary risk. And...

    The Unnecessary Scourge By Paul Driessen "My friend's four-year-old child hasn't been able to walk for months because of malaria," Ugandan farmer and businesswoman Fiona "Fifi" Kobusingye says softly. "She crawls around on the floor. Her eyes bulge out like a chameleon, her hair is dried up, and her stomach is all swollen because the parasites have taken over her liver. Her family doesn't have the money to help her, and neither does the Ugandan government. All they can do is take care of her the best they can, and wait for her to die." Malaria is also a personal...

    If I were to tell you that the Congress of Racial Equality held a teach-in last month, and that among the featured speakers was one of the founders of Greenpeace, what would you suppose was the agenda? Denouncing the policies of rich-world environmentalists whose policies mean suffering and death for hundreds of millions of destitute people in poor countries, especially in Africa. That's what. Participants minced no words in their description of the event, and I intend to deliver them to you largely unminced as well, because they know what they are talking about and they've said it better than...

    International environmentalists finally are being held accountable for the havoc they are wreaking around the world. On January 20, the Congress of Racial Equality — a 62-year-old, New York-based civil rights group — and the Women's National Republican Club convened a Manhattan teach-in to begin educating the public on a problem they call "eco-imperialism." The House Subcommittee on Energy and Mineral Resources will explore this issue art a Wednesday-afternoon hearing on Capitol Hill.) Countless third worlders still plunge into darkness every dusk. After they fall asleep, they dream about such things as lights, running water, and the defeat of diseases...

    Toronto Sun ^ | February 1, 2004
    In life, as in cowboy movies, there are only two kinds of people: good guys in white hats; bad guys in black hats. For the last third of the 20th century, the greens wore the white hats and the rest of us wore the black ones, environmentally speaking anyway. By greens, I mean sandal-wearing, granola-eating, eco-snobs. Anti-everything from seal hunts to green lawns. The rest of us: fossil-fuel-burning, meat-eating, weed-spraying car lovers out to end life on this planet. The greens: environmentally perfect. The rest of us: not. But at last the sandal is on the other foot. They're not...

    Activists in the environmentalist movement have a callous disregard for people. You say: "What do you mean, Williams? We can't think of a more caring people." First, I'm not talking about sensible people who're concerned about clean air and water. I'm talking about the movement leaders and the politicians they have under their thumbs. Let's look at it. The New York Green Party said in its opposition to pesticide spraying to halt the spread of West Nile disease, "These diseases only kill the old and people whose health is already poor." In East Meadow and Hempstead, N.Y., local officials, following...

    THE view most people have of colonialism and imperialism is largely negative. So any charge that a group, individual or government is guilty of them is bound to be resisted strongly by the recipient. Recently, in New York City, a broad charge of eco-imperialism was laid at the feet of the environmental movement. The Congress of Racial Equality (Core ) blames government officials, aid agency bureaucrats as well as sandal-wearing greens for mass disease and death in the poorest countries of the world because they export their most vile regulatory policies. According to Greenpeace co-founder Patrick Moore: "The environmental movement...

    Despite the best efforts of historian, Niall Ferguson, to demonstrate the better side of the British Empire (see Empire, Basic Books, 2002) the overwhelming view of the American people to colonialism and imperialism is largely negative.

    I ADMIT I am an occasional fan of "potty humor," at least to the extent that I enjoy the series "South Park" featuring four foul-mouthed little boys. But in many parts of the world, potties are no joke but rather literally a matter of life and death. Over 2.4 billion people, or 40 percent of the world's population, lack proper sanitation. As a result, diarrhea alone kills about three million children under the age of five each year. Horrible parasites add to the butcher's bill. But supposedly the last idea we should be considering for these poor folks are the...

    A compassionate environmentalist report has concluded the world's brown population is “better dead than alive and riotously reproducing.” The United Nations’ global warming bureaucracy is meeting (vacationing?) in Milan this week pondering how to revive the beleaguered international global warming treaty known as the Kyoto Protocol. This week’s news that Russia might say “nyet” to the treaty all but seals its doom. “A number of questions have been raised about the link between carbon dioxide and climate change which do not appear convincing and clearly it sets very serious brakes on economic growth which do not look justified,” said an...
