On July 18, 2015, about a month into his long-shot campaign for president, Donald Trump famously attacked John McCain. "He´s not a war hero," he said. "He was a war hero because he was captured. I like people who weren´t captured." Campaigning in Iowa that summer, Trump mocked Jeb Bush for being "low-energy." In February 2016, Trump said Bush´s brother, the forty-third president, had lied in order to invade Iraq. When Mitt Romney attacked Trump the following month, Trump responded by calling the 2012 Republican nominee a "choke artist." On his path to the 2016 GOP nomination and then the

What Identity Politics Hath Wrought

There´s a whiff of Weimar in the air. During the years of the Weimar Republic (1919-33), Germany was threatened by Communist revolutionaries and Nazi uprisings. Foreign Minister Walter Rathenau was assassinated, and violent street fighting was commonplace. Then Adolf Hitler took power in 1933. America is nowhere near that point. But many surely agree with The American Interest´s Jason Willick, who wrote Sunday that "this latest round of deadly political violence has" him "more afraid for" the United States than he has "ever been before." But as he pointed out, this political violence -- identity politics violence is a more precise term

A federal judge on Thursday ordered the IRS to name the specific employees the agency blames for targeting tea party groups for intrusive scrutiny and said the government must prove it has ceased the targeting. Judge Reggie B. Walton also said the IRS must explain the reasons for the delays for 38 groups that are part of a lawsuit in the District of Columbia, where they are still looking for a full accounting of their treatment. Judge Walton approved another round of limited discovery in the case and laid out six questions that the IRS must answer, including the employees’ names, why

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calif.) today called on House Speaker Paul Ryan (R.-Wisc.) to immediately remove “Confederate statues” from the U.S. Capitol. “If Republicans are serious about rejecting white supremacy, I call upon Speaker Ryan to join Democrats to remove the Confederate statues from the Capitol immediately,” Pelosi said in a statement. “There is no room for celebrating the violent bigotry of the men of the Confederacy in the hallowed halls of the United States Capitol or in places of honor across the country,” Pelosi said. Here is the text of her full statement: “The halls of Congress are

The top two officers and the top enlisted sailor who were aboard the destroyer USS Fitzgerald are among about a dozen sailors who will face discipline following an early-morning collision June 17 that killed seven crew members, a senior Navy officer said Thursday. Adm. William F. Moran, the vice chief of naval operations, told reporters at the Pentagon that the majority of the punishments will be delivered Friday in Yokosuka, Japan, where the ship is. One sailor received an undisclosed administrative punishment Thursday. Moran declined to describe what occurred in the moments before the collision, saying that remains under investigation.

Americans were shocked by the naked political violence we saw this weekend in Charlottesville, Va. Commenters on the left and the right immediately blamed the usual suspects. The right blamed identity politics. The left blamed entrenched racism. But an obvious cause of injury and death is once again being overlooked: the fact that the violence was allowed to get underway at all. State, local, and even college campus leadership appear to be telling police to stand by while some degree of unlawful violence takes place right before their eyes. Yet when that violence predictably spirals out of control, the authorities profess

The ridiculous campaign by virtually every media outlet, every Democrat and far too many squishy Republicans to label Trump some kind of racist and Nazi sympathizer is beginning to have the stink of an orchestrated smear. The conflagration in Charlottesville is beginning to feel like a set-up, perhaps weeks or months in the planning. Planned by whom? Time may tell. We know that Michael Signer, the mayor of Charlottesville, declared his city to be the "capital of the resistance" just after Trump´s inauguration. We know that Gov. Terry McAuliffe is a corruptocrat, joined at the hip to the Clintons. He

Why August´s solar eclipse is your
chance to witness one of the
greatest mysteries of the universe
Fox News, by Michael Guillen Ph.D.    Original Article

Scientists are understandably jazzed about the total solar eclipse on Aug. 21. They hope to learn a lot. But you should be excited, too, because the eclipse will pull back the curtains on one of the greatest and deadliest mysteries of the universe: the solar corona. As a graduate student at Cornell, I came to know Hans Bethe, the brilliant nuclear physicist who in 1967 won the Nobel Prize for figuring out the nuclear fusion reactions that make the sun shine. Basically, Bethe found that pairs of hydrogen nuclei fuse – like clay balls, they literally stick together – to create zillions

Liberal boycott backfires; Dennis Prager

A left wing attempt to boycott a performance of the Santa Monica Symphony due to a guest appearance by conservative radio host Dennis Prager backfired on Wednesday night; the event was a sellout. The symphony put on a fundraising concert at the Walt Disney Concert Hall in downtown Los Angeles. Prager served as a guest conductor at the invitation of the orchestra´s director. Prager has made controversial comments in the past, saying that he believes gay marriage would lead to incest, and that children are better off with heterosexual parents. Prager also has a passion for classical music, and has been a

Statue Of Lincoln Defaced In Chicago

The people who are tearing down statues of Confederates in the South are barbarians, not notably different from the Taliban fanatics who blow up Buddhas and other historical monuments. Many have noted that if the barbarians want to erase Robert E. Lee and Jefferson Davis today, it is only a matter of time before they come for George Washington and Thomas Jefferson. We can add Abraham Lincoln to that list. Last night, a bust of Lincoln in Chicago was vandalized, apparently as a political act: Abraham Lincoln has joined George Washington on the list of those targeted by Chicagoans in

GETTYSBURG, Pa.- Officials with the National Park Service said the Confederate monuments at Gettysburg National Military Park in Pennsylvania will not be removed from the battlefield. Katie Lawhon, senior adviser for the park service´s Gettysburg battlefield office, told the Reading Eagle (http://bit.ly/2uTe2rn ) the site-specific memorials are important, and the park service´s job is to historically and objectively tell the stories the monuments commemorate. Her reassurance comes after a heated debate over Confederate monuments spread across the U.S. Three people died amid turmoil in Charlottesville, Virginia, Saturday over the planned removal of a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee.

Five terrorists were shot dead by police in the early hours of this morning after they attempted a second attack in a beach resort near Barcelona - hours after an atrocity in the Spanish city killed 13. Seven members of the public including a policeman were hurt in the latest attack in Cambrils, 70 miles south-west of Barcelona, which saw the Jihadis’ car overturn before they were gunned down by armed police. Footage from the scene appears to show bodies wearing suicide belts strewn around the seafront. Bystanders had jumped onto the beach when gunshots rang out at around 1am

Steven K. Bannon, the swashbuckling former Goldman Sachs banker and press baron of Breitbart news who calls himself “Chief Strategist” of Trump’s historic campaign, is in deep trouble within the Trump White House. To be clear, I am no fan of National Security Advisor H. R. McMaster whose globalist views and hires are negating the foreign policy the President ran on. I am one who had publicly defended Bannon from false charges of racism and anti-Semitism yet I have concluded he is a spent force, never being willing to spend his political capital to help his friends and in some cases helping

Monument to Confederate president Jefferson

A monument to Confederate president Jefferson Davis in Arizona has been tarred and feathered. The marker honoring the Confederacy´s only president was found covered in the black tar and white feathers on Thursday near Gold Canyon, Arizona on the outskirts of Phoenix. The monument was erected in the 1940s by the United Daughters of the Confederacy. It comes amid a wave of backlash directed at Confederate monuments and simmering racial tensions nationwide, and is the second defacement of a monument in Arizona this week. ´These acts of vandalism are not an appropriate response, and it´s not how we do things in Arizona, Governor

President Trump announced Thursday he will be pulling the plug on yet another advisory council – this one, on infrastructure. The council, which was still being formed, ideally would have advised the president on his highly-hyped $1 trillion infrastructure plan geared towards upgrading the country’s crumbling roads and bridges. The move comes one day after Trump announced he shut down two other job councils, amid a wave of resignations by executives in the wake of the president’s response to the violence in Charlottesville, Va.

A statue of Robert E. Lee at Duke University Chapel has been defaced. The damage to the face of the stone statue, which is one of ten adorning the entrance to the private university´s chapel in Durham, North Carolina, was discovered early Thursday. Parts of the the statue´s face, including the entire nose, appeared to have been chipped off, though officials declined to speculate on how the damage was inflicted. The vandalism comes less than a week after protesters, reacting to the violent events in Charlottesville, Virginia over the weekend, toppled and damaged a monument to Confederate soldiers in downtown

James Murdoch, the CEO of 21st Century Fox, slammed Trump´s equivocating response to the Charlottesville violence in a letter to staff on Thursday.

First there was Calexit. Then came Calexit II. On Thursday, people unhappy with California’s place in the United States filed yet another proposed ballot measure that could lead to the Golden State striking out on its own. This time, the goal is convening a U.S. constitutional convention to overhaul what proponents call a moldy national blueprint out of step with life in California. The measure says a reworked Constitution should include a provision creating a “clear and reasonable path for states to achieve complete independence from the United States should any state so choose.” No state has become independent under the existing U.S.

There´s an old Cole Porter tune called “Let´s Not Talk about Love.” It´s not one of his most delightful works, but it does fall into the ample category of Porter “list” songs. (Snip) I´ve been thinking about Porter´s song today while watching the TV coverage of the Barcelona terrorist attack. On the BBC, on Sky News, and on CNN (I live in Norway, and therefore was unable to watch the U.S. broadcast networks), reporters and newsreaders talked about the specifics of the carnage, caused by a truck whose jihadist driver deliberately steered it off the road and onto the pavement,

Joe Maldonado, who at 8 years old because the first transgender member of the Boy Scouts in February, and Rebekah Bruesehoff, the 10-year-old transgender girl from Sussex County whose appearance at a Jersey City rally garnered national attention the same month, were honored along with Carmen Carrera, a one-time "RuPaul´s Drag Race" contestant who later came out as trans.

An SUV crashed after all four occupants overdosed on heroin in North Carolina. The same day, a man in Williamsport, Pennsylvania, grabbed the steering wheel after his grandson lost consciousness while driving. Police in the city of 30,000 responded to 11 other overdose reports that day, including a woman who crashed her car just before a highway entrance. The next day in Cleveland, a rescue squad found an unconscious 43-year-old man who had driven off the road and hit a pole. An overdose antidote brought him back around, police say. He was seriously hurt from the crash and was cited

Brad Dacus was thousands of miles away in California last weekend when the Charlottesville protest erupted, so he was flabbergasted when CNN labeled his Pacific Justice Institute a “hate group.” “Here are all the active hate groups where you live,” said the CNN wire story headline on Chicago’s WGN-TV website. The article listed the 917 organizations on the Southern Poverty Law Center’s much-disputed “hate map,” which names racist groups like the Aryan Nation alongside mainstream conservative organizations such as the Alliance Defending Freedom and the Family Research Council. Mr. Dacus’ conservative Sacramento-based institute, which specializes in religious-liberty cases, was featured

Democratic candidate for Maryland´s governorship Ben Jealous was arrested on Tuesday outside the White House during an immigration rally. Jealous was leading the rally around the White House when he and 26 others were taken into custody, CBS reports. The rally was in support of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), an immigration program. "His actions today are consistent with his life-long work as a civil rights leader and community organizer, including his efforts to steer passage of the Maryland Dream Act," Jealous spokesman Kevin Harris said.

One person was killed and six were injured after a house, which contained more than 20 butane gas canisters, blew up in Alcanar, Catalonia at about 11.15pm on Wednesday night. A second explosion took place after emergency services rushed to the scene, injuring six police officers and two firefighters as they sifted through rubble.
