  • Out – and into the world: why The Spectator is for Leave

    The Spectator ^ | 6/16/2016 | editorial staff
    The Spectator has a long record of being isolated, but right. We supported the north against the slave-owning south in the American civil war at a time when news-papers (and politicians) could not see past corporate interests. We argued for the decriminalisation of homosexuality a decade before it happened, and were denounced as the ‘bugger’s bugle’ for our troubles. We alone supported Margaret Thatcher when she first stood for the Tory leadership. And when Britain last held a referendum on Europe, every newspaper in the land advocated a ‘yes’ vote. Only two national titles backed what is now called Brexit:...

    New York Times ^ | June 14, 2016 | JENNIFER STEINHAUER
    In the latest and perhaps decisive battle over the role of women in the military, Congress is embroiled in an increasingly intense debate over whether they should have to register for the draft when they turn 18. On Tuesday, the Senate approved an expansive military policy bill that would for the first time require young women to register for the draft. The shift, while fiercely opposed by some conservative lawmakers and interest groups, had surprisingly broad support among Republican leaders and women in both parties. The United States has not used the draft since 1973 during the Vietnam War. But...
  • Clinton: I support women registering for the draft

    The Politico ^ | June 15, 2016 | Louis Nelson
    Hillary Clinton supports a measure that would require women to register for the draft. The former secretary of state told the Huffington Post Wednesday that she is in favor of a legislative amendment that would for the first time compel women to register with the Selective Service System. That legislation passed the Senate Wednesday as part of the National Defense Authorization Act, which cleared the upper chamber on a bipartisan, 85-13 vote. “I am on record as supporting the all-volunteer military, which I think at this time does serve our country well,” Clinton said. “And I am very committed to...

    Ron Yosef, an openly gay Orthodox rabbi and leader of the HOD organization seeking to provide a framework for homosexual religious Jews to stay within Judaism, was arrested on Sunday over suspicions of fraud and theft, NRG reported. According to police reports, Yosef in the past allegedly stole 300,000 shekels from a building firm he was then working for, using fraudulent credit cards taken out in the company's name. [...] Despite his orientation and Judaism's explicit forbidding of homosexuality in the Torah, Yosef continues to identify as an Orthodox Jew. ...

    US election 2012: Mitt Romney Suggests Newt Gingrich Challenge Has Fallen Away Mitt Romney suggested on Tuesday that Newt Gingrich had fallen away in the same style as many of his other rivals for the Republican presidential nomination as polls showed an apparent collapse in the former Speaker's recent surge. By Toby Harnden, 20 Dec 2011 "They've gone up, they've come back down," Mr Romney said of his main challengers during an appearance on MSNBC after several national polls showed that the 15-point lead held by Mr Gingrich, the former Speaker of the House of Representatives, had disappeared in barely...

    But wait until you see some of the people that are building parts right here at home for their armored vehicles. There's a plant in Detroit called Tower Defense and Aerospace. The name itself gives you an idea what they do inside, but it's what we caught them doing outside during their lunch break that will shock you.

    WASHINGTON -- U.S. senators and health officials are taking on a baseball tradition older than the World Series itself: chewing tobacco on the diamond. With the Series set to begin Wednesday between the St. Louis Cardinals and Texas Rangers, the senators, along with health officials from the teams' cities, want the players union to agree to a ban on chewing tobacco at games and on camera. They made the pleas in separate letters, obtained Tuesday by The Associated Press.

    A tobacco user is not a good thing to be in this day and age. Tobacco users are not an acceptable group in 21st Century America. Not so much for what they do themselves, but what they do to others. No one likes second hand smoke, and most smokers wish they didn’t savor firsthand smoke. In fact I have yet to meet a smoker yet who gets up every morning and says “Thank you Lord for this addiction to a substance that will probably kill me in some slow, horrible manner!” If you’ve ever battled the Demon Nicotine, than you...
