    London, June 5, 2017. A minute of silence is held at Potters Field Park, next to the City Hall, to pay tribute to the victims of the London Bridge jihadist attack three days before. Those who came have brought flowers, candles and signs bearing the usual words: "unity", "peace" and "love". Faces are sad but no trace of anger is visible. The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, a Muslim, gives a speech emphasizing against all evidence that the killers' ideas have nothing to do with Islam. A few hours after the attack, Britain's Prime Minister Theresa May also refuses to...

    The supreme function of statesmanship is to provide against preventable evils. In seeking to do so, it encounters obstacles which are deeply rooted in human nature. One is that by the very order of things such evils are not demonstrable until they have occurred: at each stage in their onset there is room for doubt and for dispute whether they be real or imaginary. By the same token, they attract little attention in comparison with current troubles, which are both indisputable and pressing: whence the besetting temptation of all politics to concern itself with the immediate present at the expense...
  • Did Woodrow Wilson read James Madison's debate notes?

    06/24/2017 9:22:13 AM PDT · by ProgressingAmerica · 12 replies
    This is fully conjecture, but I'm convinced that the answer is yes. During the time in which Wilson was inventing the concept of the "living and breathing constitution", Wilson made the following observations: (Constitutional Government, page 55) The government of the United States was constructed upon the Whig theory of political dynamics, which was a sort of unconscious copy of the Newtonian theory of the universe [see: Newtonian government]. In our own day, whenever we discuss the structure or development of anything, whether in nature or in society, we consciously or unconsciously follow Darwin; but before Darwin, they followed Newton....

    pv magazine USA ^ | 06/23/2017 | Frank Andorka
    t’s clear once again that Trump doesn’t really understand how solar works. From his words, he appears to believe the mere production of energy will somehow generate revenue, ignoring the fact someone has to buy the energy it produces. He didn’t explain who would be dong that – was he planning to sell the power to Mexico? The poor residents of south Texas border towns? Who will be purchasing the electricity and at what price?

  • How Did The United States Destroy the Militant Politico-Religio Ideology of Japanese Shintoism?

    How Did The United States Destroy the Militant Politico-Religio Ideology of Japanese Shintoism? The US developed a program to utterly and totally DELEGITIMZE political Shinto in Japan after WWII and decades later results universally speaks for itself. This nation as well as all Western civilization must accept that Islam is a religion as violent and dangerous as Shintoism and must be utterly and totally delegitimized to win the war for humanity and civilization as we know it. To continue to allow the practice of political Islam is the equivalent of legitimizing and legalizing sedition/treason as an act of faith.Enough already....
  • Progressivism would not exist without Henry George

    06/21/2017 10:15:21 AM PDT · by ProgressingAmerica · 7 replies
    I've eluded to this before, but I am more convinced of this than ever. A "Progressive" gets his name; or rather, originally got his name - because of the book "Progress and Poverty". That is, this: A "Progressive" is someone who "is in favor of Progress and poverty" (The contents of the book; George's arguments, etc.) But they can't call themselves Progressandpovertyists, who are in favor of Progressandpovertyism. I feel silly even typing that, yet that's ultimately the most accurate way to describe it. That's what a progressive is. That's how it started. Henry George. Progressivism is progressandpovertyism. Now, you...

    After another busy day in Washington on Tuesday, the president and first lady slipped out for a low-key dinner at the home of Vice President Mike Pence and his wife Karen. The Trumps slipped out of the White House quickly and quietly, ducking in to a waiting motorcade which drove them the 3.1 miles to the Naval Observatory. First Lady Melania was typically stylish in a black lace cocktail dress and black leather pointed pumps. She wore a pair of large black sunglasses as she made her way through the evening heat and into the waiting car behind her husband.

  • Comparing the radicalism of Charles Beard and Howard Zinn

    06/13/2017 2:40:31 PM PDT · by ProgressingAmerica · 9 replies
    The American Thinker has an interesting piece today about Howard Zinn, in which the claim is made that: "Zinn, more than any other man, turned our history books on their heads, and in a way, changed the contemporary course of history." Honestly, I'm not sure that's true. In comparing Zinn to Charles Beard, one of the main issues is the simple expanse of time. Sure, Zinn is more acute in the lies he has written, but Beard has had over a century for his poison to become foundational thinking. Here's the thing: Howard Zinn never knew the real America, so...

I have been getting quite a bit of email from viewers of my blog who hail from the great lakes area of Duluth minnesota and Superior Wisconsin. The stories I've heard about this place is astounding. Besides being the birthplace of Lorenzo Music, the voice of Garfield the cat, its a cesspit of liberalism and socialism as well as teeming with racism and white supremacy. stories ranging from school kids dressed in black face make up to Antifa hooligans attacking bystanders for...

Hillary's Leakers Hackers and Henchmen SEIU Senate Offices - There Are a Ton of Them (ff 0:15 for partial rough transcript) I realize everyone comes to Washington with their own particular issue and it's hard for legislators to juggle all that at once. So, that's why in my strategy coming up to The Hill I only kind of go three at a time. Then I think about what I'm doing and kind of reassess. It's kind of one of those little loops. You know, observe and then decide and then act. Then kind of wait...

  • Woodrow Wilson deported 556 communists and anarchists

    06/08/2017 1:39:50 PM PDT · by ProgressingAmerica · 16 replies
    Common knowledge has it that the Red Scare involved Joseph McCarthy, HUAC, and Cold War highlights. While all of this is true, that's the second Red Scare of the 1960's. The first Red Scare is far more interesting. The first Red Scare involved progressives using the force of big government against their ideological opponents, the communists. While it is true that (probably) the two most high profile people to be deported were Emma Goldman and Alexander Berkman - both anarchists(not communists) - that does not change the fact that one of the main goals of the 1917-1919 purge was to...

  • The Literary Left's Anti-Celebration of Jerusalem's Liberation

    The literary elite is using the 50th anniversary of the reunification of Jerusalem to make Israel’s greatest victory synonymous with tragedy. It’s the new “nakba,” that being the Arabic word for “catastrophe” that Palestinians and their allies give to Israel’s victory in its 1948 war of independence, after Arab governments rejected the partition plan and declared war on the infant Jewish state. Palestinians could have had their own state all those decades ago, but chose war instead — and lost. There is something utterly nasty in trying to take a rare bright spot on the dark timeline of Jewish history...

    This is kind of strange and I really don't know what to make of it. It does not appear to be fake or just a part of a longer video but I'm not ruling that out. I can't even tell what the point of the video is really supposed to be, she never says in the video what she is actually talking about or why she made it. Did I miss something? .

    Arutz Sheva ^ | 2/6/17 | Dr. Edy Cohen
    On the Jewish holiday of Shavuot, June 1-2, 1941 (5701 on the Hebrew calendar), the Muslim residents of Baghdad carried out a savage pogrom against their Jewish neighbors. In this pogrom, known by its Arabic name al-Farhoud, about 200 Jews were murdered and thousands wounded. Jewish property was plundered and many homes set ablaze. Within a week, the British ousted the pro-Nazi government of General Rashid Ali, which had seized power in a coup d’état two months earlier, and restored the legal Iraqi government. That government appointed a commission of inquiry into the pogrom, which determined that the Nazi propaganda...
