  • Why Donald Trump Can’t Win The White House

    The Federalist ^ | 22 Feb 16 | Varad Mehta
    Donald Trump is the candidate of the white working class. His popularity with this cohort was recognized early in his candidacy. The preponderance of commentary on the Trump phenomenon since then, whether favorable to the tumescent real-estate mogul and reality television star or not, has proceeded from this assumption. These analyses affirm Trump’s allure to white, working-class voters as central to his candidacy. It is the pillar on which his dominant standing in the polls rests. If Trump wins the Republican nomination, it will be through their support. Yet these analyses, revealing as they are, overlook a salient fact. The...

    Israel's ambassador to the United Nations, Ron Prosor, on Tuesday asked the UN Security Council to condemn the Palestinian incitement to terrorism, following Mondays firebomb attack in Jerusalem. "While Israel is strongly opposed to any terrorist incident and condemns any terrorist attack, how surprising it is to see that after an Israeli citizen was wounded, the Palestinian leadership and the international community continue to maintain silence, he said, noting that attacks against Israel have continued on other fronts as well. We are marking this summer a year since the end of Operation Protective Edge, but Hamas continues to fire rockets...

It linked to a news story that detailed the uprisings which have been nicknamed the vinegar movement and the salad revolt and that have plagued that entire country for several days. The protestations have been so named because of a video that recently went viral on YouTube which depicted a journalist named Piero Locatelli being arrested for carrying a bottle of vinegar in his backpack.

    The number of Americans who believe -- wrongly -- that President Obama is a Muslim has increased significantly since his inauguration and now account for nearly 20 percent of the nation's population. Those results, from a new Pew Research Center survey, were drawn from interviews done before the president's comments about the construction of an Islamic cultural center near Ground Zero, and they suggest that there could be serious political danger for the White House as the debate continues. The president's religion, like his place of birth, has been the subject of Internet-spread rumors and falsehoods since before he began...

    How to balance military needs, international humanitarian law, and the reality of facing an enemy whose tactics are not restrained by accepted conventions are challenges to which Israel and other Western nations need to devote serious thought. The asymmetry of battle that Israel faces requires a rethinking of strategy to deal with threats from forces whose ideologies allow them not just to frustrate many Western military advantages but to use the openness of Western societiesespecially their print and image media, and the organizations through which the Western penchant for self-criticism is expressedto their own advantage. Ideology, including the perception of...

    The Scoop ^ | 9 June 2007 | SUZAN MAZUR
    When Mormon feminist Judith Dushku learned that Mitt Romney, her former bishop and friend, counseled a woman to come to full term with her sixth pregnancy --despite overwhelming medical advice that the life of mother and child were seriously endangered -- she confronted Romney about the matter, privately and publicly. He reacted bitterly, breaking off their relationship. ~snip~

    No, seriously why wont you listen to me? Im not trying to change your mind. Im just trying to understand where youre coming from. Maybe I can get you to look at this from my point of view for once, minus all the hatred. Why wont you listen to me? A bomb just exploded outside the gate and I can't sleep. I swear thats true. I thought a mortar hit my room. (I found out later that it was a very large car bomb that killed four and wounded 40 Iraqis manning a local checkpoint they are tired of...

    SDEROT - Do Americans really understand what terrorism is, what it does to a society, and how it can be defeated? Five young Israeli soldiers -- nineteen- and twenty-year-olds stationed in Sderot, a small town bordering the Gaza Strip -- say Americans have much to learn. These members of the Israel Defense Forces should know: part of their job is to protect and comfort the traumatized youth who live here in the city where Kassam rockets fall from the sky. -snip- "Terrorism is a fact of life here," says Yuval's twenty-year-old commanding officer, Rehut Eisenberg. Unlike Americans who recently suffered...

    A quote from the French judge, Jean de Maillard (Vice-president of the Superior Court of Orlans, and a professor at the Institute of Political Science in Paris), 28 November 2007 [here is an English translation] When two schools, a library, a police station, a garage and several other buildings on a list already forgotten are set on fire, not to mention dozens of vehicles each day, we are used to it. It has become almost a routine. However, the second night of Villiers-le-Bel marks an escalation that the media and the government would probably prefer to hush up, but which...

    The man who runs away will fight again. - Menander, 303 B.C. In April 1972, with North Vietnamese forces advancing as part of their Nguyen Hue Offensive, Seventh Air Force Headquarters in Saigon began drawing up evacuation plans. Approximately 60,000 U.S. military personnel remained in South Vietnam along with many more thousands of civilian contractors, American reporters, missionaries, businessmen, State Department personnel and employees of other U.S. government agencies. The planners soon gave up. In 1972, if South Vietnam had fallen, there would have been no way to evacuate that many Americans. If the North Vietnamese and their communist Viet...

    A Miami Central High math teacher was arrested after attacking the Homestead Air Reserve Base in a failed suicide bid, authorities say. Wielding two butcher knives bought at Wal-Mart and vodka bottles to use as explosives, Tahmeed Ahmad chanted ''Death to America'' and told Homestead Air Reserve Base guards he wanted to kill soldiers. But Ahmad was no terrorist, authorities believe. Rather, the Miami Central High School math teacher wanted to ''commit suicide by cop'' when he attacked military policemen stationed at the west gate just before midnight Sunday, the FBI said. Ahmad did not get his wish. One officer...

    The Bible talks a great deal about sin, the popular notion being that through Gods vengeance we will burn for an eternity of Hell lest we repent and change. But I believe in the notion that we are punished not so much for our sins, but rather, by our sins. The ugly nature of politics today, and its probable outcome, provides an apt demonstration. Few would argue, at least among those of us who believe there is such a thing as morality, that todays popular culture is markedly degenerate. We glorify women who dress like tramps and lionize rap stars...

    Jewish World Review ^ | August 24, 2007 / 10 Elul, 5766 | Caroline B. Glick
    As the cliche goes, "A conservative is a liberal whose been mugged by reality." Like most cliches, this one exposes a larger truth. Namely, people often base their views on their fantasies of how the world should be than on the reality of how the world actually is. Following this line, the September 11, 2001 attacks can be seen as a large-scale mugging. After the attacks, the same American people that had ignored the threat of totalitarian Islam since the Iranian revolution first categorized the US as the Great Satan back in 1979, acknowledged the danger and recognized it was...
  • Dear Son, Let me tell you what immigration has done to this country (UK)

    Last year, former Tory minister George Walden wrote a book about the future of life in Britain and why record numbers were emigrating. Taking the form of a letter from a father to his son, it provoked a massive, positive response from readers when it was serialised in the Daily Mail. In the book, Guy and Catherine despaired at having to bring up their two children in an area that had been dramatically changed by mass immigration, where their children had become a minority in school and teachers struggled to deal with so many pupils who did not speak English....
