In February 2008, the ethnically Albanian province of Kosovo declared itself to be separate from Serbia of which it had been part for 60 years. There was no referendum on sovereignty by its 2.1 million inhabitants. The declaration was greeted with warm approval by the United States.

Moody´s Investors Service has given the city of Charleston the highest possible bond rating, a move Mayor Joe Riley says will save taxpayers´ money because the city will get better interest rates when it borrows money for building projects. Riley said the city has had a very good week. On Friday, Conde Nast declared Charleston the top tourist destination in the world. Then Wednesday, it´s bond rating from Moody´s was upgraded from Aa1 to Aaa. "It´s a wonderful financial badge of merit," Riley said of the rating boost. Charleston is the first city in South Carolina to get top ratings

Gov. Nikki Haley appointed eight people in less than two weeks to sit on a committee required by state law to advise her in case of a public health emergency. The South Carolina Public Health Emergency Plan Committee must be consulted before the governor declares any public health emergency. The law instructs the governor to make the committee appointments and outlines the positions that should be filled. For example, an infectious disease doctor, a coroner from an urban county and a medical examiner must be represented. On Monday, Haley held a public meeting on Ebola preparedness in South Carolina.

JERUSALEM (JTA) - U.S. government personnel have been restricted from using Jerusalem Light Rail stations in parts of eastern Jerusalem for a month. The U.S. State Department announced the ban Thursday in a security message emailed to Americans in Israel the day after a terrorist attack on a light rail station left an infant dead and seven people injured. The restriction is for the area where Wednesday’s attack occurred and further into eastern Jerusalem. The restriction will be reviewed after 30 days. Also in the security message, U.S. citizens were warned against entering eastern Jerusalem neighborhoods that have been the

Immediately following the attack on Canada’s Parliament many media pundits began referring to the terrorist attacker as “misguided.” Some pondered whether the convert to radical Islam, Michael Sehaf-Bibeau, was somehow a “madman,” a “lunatic” or a “nut job.” What this betrays is a profound misunderstanding of the struggle being waged against free Western societies and an underestimation of what must be fought. The media then began a psychoanalytical study of the underlying motivations of the attacker and his ilk. Almost within twenty-four hours, “terrorism experts” became psychologists and sociologists deconstructing the deleterious social environment in search of a justification for the

It is often said in European circles that the other big European countries will go a long way to keep Britain in the union. The European Union without Britain, after all, would be a very different thing: more protectionist, less free market. But are those who want Britain to stay willing to put their money where their mouth is? New demands for an extra £1.7 billion in membership fee raises that question. Frankly, it´s hard to think of something better calculated to push Britain towards the exit than this. Let´s be clear about something here. David Cameron does not want Britain to

Back in August, when news first broke of a shooting in Ferguson, Mo., the media world, perpetually tingling with eagerness for white-on-black violence stories, plunged into delirium. An unarmed, black 18-year-old “gentle giant” had been shot in the back while running away from a white police officer! He was just preparing to enter college in the fall. He had been assassinated while holding his hands in the air in a gesture of helplessness. “Hands up; don’t shoot,” chanted protesters. The “hands up” gesture immediately achieved iconic status among demonstrators from Boston to New York to San Francisco. If the early reports

President Obama says he’s “shaken” by this week’s violent attacks on three soldiers in Ottawa by an Islamic jihadist. He immediately phoned Canadian prime minister Stephen Harper to offer support and “solidarity.” He vowed to “remain vigilant.” Too bad Obama didn’t show the same resolve after multiple attacks and plots against our troops by Muslim terrorists on our soil. And I’m not just talking about the “workplace violence” of jihadist Nidal Hasan, whose Koran-inspired Fort Hood rampage took the lives of 13 American servicemen and servicewomen and one unborn baby. An entire parade of infidel-hating fanatics targeted U.S. soldiers long before Islamic

I said yesterday that I got angrier about the events in Ottawa as the day went on. My anger continued today. As I told Alan Jones on 2GB in Sydney, apropos Muslim "reverts" who want to engage in what the Premier of Quebec calls "spontaneous acts of extremism", I´m tired of being told that we have to change to accommodate them. They are the ones who have to change, or have change forced upon them. And, rather than confiscating passports and preventing these guys from leaving to fight for ISIS, I think we should wait till they get there to

New York City officials tonight issued a desperate appeal for calm after revealing that a Harlem resident has been diagnosed with Ebola. Infected doctor Craig Spencer, 33, rode three subways, went for a jog, ate out, went bowling, and rode in an Uber cab the day before he tested positive for the deadly virus. However, Mayor Bill de Blasio addressed the city tonight to insist that the probability of any subway users becoming infected is ´close to nil´. He revealed the CDC has been working with the city´s health workers for weeks for fear of an outbreak, and a back-up

There is an enormous amount of whining these days about our ideological debates. This gets the problem wrong. Ideological debates are fought over ideas, but politics is more often about competing stories, or, as the eggheads call them, “narratives.” Much has been written about the power of ideas. “The ideas of economists and political philosophers, both when they are right and when they are wrong, are more powerful than is commonly understood,” John Maynard Keynes famously wrote. “Indeed, the world is ruled by little else. Practical men, who believe themselves to be quite exempt from any intellectual influences, are usually slaves

Democratic senator Kay Hagan of North Carolina was pounded last winter and spring in TV ads by conservative groups for having voted for Obamacare and echoed President Obama’s false claim that people could keep their current health insurance. “They had her on the ropes,” says Marc Rotterman, a Republican consultant in North Carolina. Then Senate Majority PAC, Harry Reid’s personal political action committee, intervened. Its television spots defended Hagan and attacked Thom Tillis, her Republican challenger, for supposedly dubious ethics. This was only the beginning. By last week, Reid’s PAC had spent $9 million to boost Hagan’s reelection. And Hagan’s candidacy

Senate Democrats are reportedly preparing to rush through a number of President Obama’s nominees during the upcoming lame-duck session of Congress, signaling that Democrats in the Senate are bearish on their chances in the Nov. 4 midterm elections. “We will definitely move a lot of nominees during the lame duck one way or the other — possibly more if Republicans take the majority,” a Democratic Senate aide told Talking Points Memo. The aide did, however, “express confidence” that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., will retain his position of power and that the Democrats hold Congress’ upper chamber. The aide explained that because

Terror on the Hills

Terror struck in two disparate venues Wednesday, places — in the Talmudic phrase — “as far apart as east from west.” Indeed Jerusalem, Israel, is the hub of the Middle East and no place is as bleached in its Western-ness as Ottawa, Canada. Yet the hills of each played grim host to the murderous scourge of our time, the “Black Death” of Islamic terror. Each terrorist succeeded in bartering his pathetic existence for one innocent life. The world is better off without the two miscreants but sadly impoverished by losing two pure souls. In Jerusalem, the usual crowd had been crammed

Monica Lewinsky injected herself into the news cycle once again this week, this time with a fascinating re-writing of her dubious place in history. Lewinsky painted herself as victim, once again, but this time she claims to be a victim of the Internet. Or, more specifically, of Matt Drudge and the Drudge Report. In Lewinsky’s warped (or calculated) view of her time in the limelight, she was the world’s first victim of “cyberbullying” and Drudge the first perpetrator. One thing about the Internet that is undeniable is that it creates a record of a person’s behavior and statements so when they attempt

Ebola hit New York on Thursday but, just the day prior, infected doctor Craig Spencer went bowling at a busy Brooklyn hotspot and Twitter users are demanding to know why. Social media in general lit up with angry rants, confused questions and darkly funny jokes as New Yorkers try to understand one thing: Why did he go bowling? Health officials Thursday night maintained that Spencer, 33, was not contagious before his fever started on Thursday morning. However, they´ve identified at risk individuals who made contact with Spencer--people he was around on Wednesday or before. And New Yorkers, concerned America´s largest and densest city has

Supposing Republicans win a big victory on November 4. What then? First, celebration. Republicans are sober and conservatives are .??.??. conservative. Neither group has a reputation as party animals. But The Weekly Standard gives them permission—nay, we urge them with the full authority of our weighty editorial voice—to let themselves go for one night. Pop the champagne corks. Put on the party hats. Go wild with the funny little noisemakers. Because the result—assuming it’s as strong as it looks 12 days out—will be worth celebrating. It will be good news that Barack Obama’s spell over the electorate has been broken. It will

Most people have concluded that the Obama administration is incompetent, but we must admit that it is supremely talented at one thing: stonewalling. Time after time, the administration has managed to run out the clock on scandals through sheer chutzpah. Fast and Furious, as the longest-running Obama scandal, is farthest along in this respect. Judicial Watch made a Freedom of Information Act request for a very limited number of documents relating to Fast and Furious, and got stiffed. The organization then started a lawsuit to compel production of the requested documents. Years later, the lawsuit grinds along slowly, the Obama administration’s

The institution of marriage among America’s poor has been totally destroyed, and this has had devastating effects on our ability to fight poverty. For 40 years after the family’s breakdown in the 1960s and ’70s, leftists have claimed that, as far as child-development and child-poverty are concerned, marriage matters little. Further, according to the Left, if having a second parent in a child’s life did make a difference, this was merely due to a second paycheck—a role government could easily fill. To a point, the Left still makes the arguments outlined above. Yet modern social science is heavily stacked against this

Testimony emerging from the grand jury investigating the death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri seems to confirm the police officer’s claims of self-defense. The official coroner’s report reputedly points to a struggle over the police officer’s gun. But more facts need to be known over the controversial encounter that inflamed protests in the majority black town against the majority white police force. Lack of hard facts did not deter Religious Left activists Jim Wallis and Cornel West from demonstrating and seeking their own arrests in Ferguson last week as part of a “weekend of resistance” ending with a carefully choreographed

It is rare that several seemingly unconnected stories on quite different topics can turn out, when read together, to make a cohesive and profound point on the nature the American presidency. But that is the case today. The first story is Jeff Shesol’s piece in the New Yorker on the newfound humility of the followers of President Obama, once the lightbringer and redeemer but now, astonishingly to them, human. And although there is a point hidden in this tale of political woe, it is a point Shesol misses. The piece is headlined “Obama and the End of Greatness.” The story is

The chairman of a powerful committee in Congress is demanding access ´without delay´ to a key witness in the Lois Lerner email saga that has engulfed the IRS, but the Treasury Department insists she can´t testify until after the midterm congressional elections. House Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp, a Michigan Republican, demanded late Wednesday in a letter to Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew that he must make Treasury counsel Hannah Stott-Bumsted available before that Nov. 4 political milestone date. Stott-Bumsted was the first Treasury aide to learn that the IRS was unable to locate two years´ worth of disgraced official

It is such a relief about that Ebola thing. The threat of a U.S. outbreak turned out to be overhyped. A military operation is underway to help those poor Liberians. An Ebola czar (what is his name again?) has been appointed to coordinate the U.S. government response. The growth of the disease in Africa, by some reports, seems to have slowed. On to the next crisis. Except that this impression of control is an illusion, and a particularly dangerous one. The Ebola virus has multiplied in a medium of denial. There was the initial denial that a rural disease, causing isolated

Oscar Pistorius, whose penchant for turning on the waterworks punctuated much of his murder trial, spent his first night in a South African prison loudly sobbing, according to a local report. “You could hear him. Shortly after the door closed you could hear the tears. He was torn up. Broken. The crying went on and on,” according to The Times of South Africa, quoting an unnamed source. “It was really bad,” the source said. Other reports have surfaced over the athlete’s initial night behind bars on Tuesday, saying the double-amputee appeared confused and nervous after his arrival at Kgosi Mampuru II prison.

The New York Times has discovered something that many already knew. But they knew it from various defects of character – because they were racists or right-wingers or some other primitive life form. So what they knew wasn’t fact or truth but superstition or prejudice. The headline on the Times story reads: In the West, a Growing List of Attacks Linked to Extremism Up until yesterday’s attack in Canada these things were classified as “workplace violence,” or by some other euphemism. Now, we learn that it is “extremism" that is behind the attacks. Progress of a sort. Next question for the Times: What kind
