Racial differences are real but
no cause for discrimination

Washington Examiner, by Michael Barone

Original Article

Posted By:Judy W., 7/7/2014 7:56:04 AM

“New analyses of the human genome establish that human evolution has been recent, copious and regional,” writes Nicholas Wade in his recently published book A Troublesome Inheritance: Genes, Race and Human History. That sounds reasonable, and Wade, a science reporter and editor for many years at Nature and the New York Times, seems an unimpeachable source. But many well-meaning people will regard his words as provocative and even dangerous. For they fatally undermine the idea, widely shared by so-called progressives, that any apparent differences between groups of people are the product of nurture rather than nature, of social conditioning rather than

Liberals embrace evolution as proven fact rather than theory, and then deny its obvious implications when it comes to racial differences.

Wade´s book "Before the Dawn" answers many questions. He in fact comes out say that the clustering of humans in their DNA is so distinct that if it were another animal scientists would call them sub-species. It is political correctness that scares away scientists whose grants and funding could disappear over night if they as much as utter the word race.

Many years ago the military started testing recruits for testosterone levels. They did so because the black recruits had an 18% higher level than whites. This could explain quite a number of things.

Why is it that we can accept the fact that, on average, blacks can jump better than whites (muscle structure) and whites are more likely to complete SEAL training (body fat) but we are unwilling to accept that evolution differentially affects cognitive ability (IQ)? How about PC denial?

Caucasians and Asians, on average, have superior cognitive ability than Africans. Don´t let this terrify you; use it to choose NBA players, leaders, and teachers. Always discriminate...

But always discriminate on the basis of relevant variables.

Full disclosure: I´m a lousy basketball player and couldn´t complete SEAL training if I tried.

Scotland´s Future Hangs in Balance

"The best laid schemes of mice and men often go awry." -- Scottish poet Robert Burns, "To a Mouse" (1786) CAIRNRYAN, Scotland -- For Americans whose knowledge of this beautiful land is limited to kilts, whiskey, bagpipes and the film "Braveheart," the forthcoming referendum on whether Scotland should remain part of the United Kingdom or become an independent nation will come as a curiosity at best. The primary objection of those favoring separation is the lack of self-determination granted to Scots by the British government. Though Westminster in recent months has devolved more powers to Edinburgh, those favoring separation say it is

Export-Import Bank faces rocky
path to renewal as Congress returns
Washington Examiner, by Timothy Carney    Original Article

Congress will barely be in session in the 10 weeks before Election Day, and it will do very little legislating. One of the issues it does have to resolve, though, is what to do with the Export-Import Bank. Ex-Im is a federal agency that subsidizes U.S. exporters, giving taxpayer-backed financing to foreign companies and governments. Conservatives are giving this agency a hard time, and House leaders show no desire to take up a bill reauthorizing Ex-Im. But government-shutdown politics complicates things. Here´s the lay of the land: Democrats, for all their populist rhetoric and barbs at Big Business, are nearly

It isn’t hard to understand the truth about Israel and Hamas. (Snip) The greatest threat to faux reporters like the New York Times Israel bureau chief Jodi Rudoren and her colleagues are people who refuse to accept their distortions and insist that the truth be told. The most dangerous of the truth tellers are the non- Jews who stand up for Israel. This week, former British Labour MP Denis MacShane published an op-ed in Haaretz where he spoke to this point. MacShane argued that for Israel to win the information war being waged against it must cultivate non-Jewish defenders.

Poll: Most Americans Want to Criminalize

A whopping 68 percent of Americans think there should be a law that prohibits kids 9 and under from playing at the park unsupervised, despite the fact that most of them no doubt grew up doing just that. What´s more: 43 percent feel the same way about 12-year-olds. They would like to criminalize all pre-teenagers playing outside on their own (and, I guess, arrest their no-good parents). Those are the results of a Reason/Rupe poll confirming that we have not only lost all confidence in our kids and our communities—we have lost all touch with reality.

Many kids are heading back to public school this week, and so begins fall and spring semesters. (Snip) But what happens when the school staff is equipped with a big list of employees, but not necessarily a big crop of teachers focused on your child? Tax dollars in places you don’t know about. Even though the Obama Administration proposes spending $25 billion specifically to “provide support for hundreds of thousands of education jobs” in order to “keep teachers in the classroom,” research by both Heritage andThe Fordham Institute reveal alarming numbers: only half of education jobs belong to teachers.

Why Is It So Hard for
Employers to Fill These Jobs?
Daily Signal, by Stephen Moore    Original Article
Posted By: Judy W.- 8/24/2014 6:48:27 AM     Post Reply
America has a deficit of workers. Willing workers. Capable workers. Skilled, or at least semi-skilled workers, who can do a job and do it well. There are at least one million jobs that go begging day after day if only employers could find workers to fill them. This probably seems hard-to-believe. After all, how can America have a worker shortage when we have about 18 million Americans who are unemployed or underemployed? When the real unemployment rate is 12 percent? (Snip) But there are also millions of unemployed Americans who don’t have the skill sets to match what employers are in need

American Thinker, by Clarice Feldman    Original Article

Following the horrific ISIS beheading of an American journalist, James Foley, we are led to believe that the president is beginning to rethink the issue of terrorism, or so we gather from the comments of Ben Rhodes, his deputy national security advisor. When you see somebody killed in such a horrific way, that represents a terrorist attack,” [Ben Rhodes, the White House’s deputy national security advisor] said. “That represents a terrorist attack against our country and against an American citizen.” As is common with the garbled uncoordinated messaging of the administration, Rhodes´ characterization just makes it worse that Obama very publicly went

Those who knew James Foley speak well of him. He seems to have met a dreadful death with courage. His final statement as put out by his murderers was a puzzle, however. (Snip) I assumed that his Islamic State murderers had dictated what he was to say, with the threat of torture if he did not sound sincere. Not a bit of it. Daniel Greenfield is a reliable journalist, and he writes an article to spell out that Foley held the United States in contempt and had gone to Syria to associate with the Sunni rebels and help them overthrow

Gun-rights group persuading
dozens of towns to repeal
firearms regs in legal blitz

WASHINGTON – A Washington state-based gun rights group is steadily persuading cities and towns across the country to repeal local firearms regulations and give that power back to the states. The organization, the Second Amendment Foundation, is working to invalidate city ordinances by arguing that they´re in conflict with looser state regulations. So far, it seems to be working. The group says it´s been able to overturn more than 100 gun-related ordinances this way, most recently in Utah. “We’re going state by state, going through every single ordinance of every city and county in every state and finding where the

In times of evil, prophets who see it in what Ronald Knox called a “clear light” are not necessarily heeded, though they are desperately needed. Such a man was Hilaire Belloc, as Monsignor Knox described him at Belloc’s funeral Mass in 1953. “By derivation,” Knox explained, a prophet “is one who speaks out.” Belloc, the first truly revisionist historian, made it his life’s work to speak out. He warned of the rise of Islam throughout the early years of the 20th century and then between the two world wars, when such prophecy seemed absurd. In 2006 another great prophet, Pope Benedict

   

 



 
Our Bien Pensant American Historians:
The New Friends of Hamas

In July of 1945, an organization called the Friends of the Haganah was created by American Jews, to support the defense forces of the Jewish community in Palestine. They knew that the Yishuv — the name of the Palestinian Jews who had built up the basis for a future state — were living under the dire threat of constant attacks by the surrounding Arab states. How things have changed. Nowhere has this been illustrated better than in the recent petition signed by over 200 American historians (who now claim over 1000 signatures), condemning Israel for its “disproportionate” use of force and

Hamas’s war with Israel is not a stand-alone event. It is happening in the context of the vast changes that are casting asunder old patterns of behavior and strategic understandings as actors in the region begin to reassess the threats they face. Hamas was once funded by Saudi Arabia and enabled by Egypt. Now the regimes of these countries view it as part of a larger axis of Sunni jihad that threatens not only Israel, but them. The Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, and its state sponsors Qatar and Turkey, are the key members of this alliance structure. Without their support

President Barack Obama faced a tough crowd on Tuesday – American military veterans – and fell flat on his applause lines as he failed to win over the American Legion´s convention-goers.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla.— Former Republican Gov. Charlie Crist continued his political comeback Tuesday as Democratic voters selected him as their nominee to challenge Republican Gov. Rick Scott in Florida, one of four states where voters were choosing candidates for statewide office. Crist easily defeated former state Sen. Nan Rich, while Scott coasted in his own primary toward a general election matching the state’s last two Republican governors. Both have struggled with sagging approval ratings and run-ins with conservatives. “It’s a wonderful night,” Crist declared after accepting a concession call from Rich. Crist said the strong showing is a sign that Democrats

A ´supercavitating´ submarine creates a bubble of air that encompasses the whole vehicle by ejecting gas through the nose with enough force that it forms water vapor. This greatly reduces drag and allows it to travel at high speeds not possible by standard submarines. Photo: The Washington Post In the annals of vehicular locomotion, the submarine is the equivalent of the Walkman. It dazzled the masses when it hit, flexing nuclear-tipped missiles that completed the "nuclear triad" of deterrence. But other technologies soon surpassed it in terms of speed and agility. Now, years later, the submarine may be making a
