  • In Defense of Russell Brand (Sort Of)

    Townhall.com ^ | November 21, 2014 | Humberto Fontova
    <p>British vaudeville comedian Russell Brand needs better staff. He’s touring the U.S. promoting his book “Revolution” while impishly equating Che Guevara with Jesus Christ and Gandhi. The look on Brand’s face as he looked around the stage and crowd while detonating these devilish observations on Jimmy Fallon was pitiful—in the most genuine sense of the word. Brand deserves pity for imagining this was a bomb-throwingly clever way to shake-up the U.S. “establishment.”</p>

    Die Zeit (translation) ^ | 1. October 2014 | Boris Schumatsky
    The greatest difficulty in dealing with Russia is this: Russia lies. This blanket assertion sounds like a slogan from the Cold War, and yet it's the only one that does justice to reality. After the collapse of the Soviet Union, when I was writing my first newspaper articles, I always avoided journalistic short-cuts such as "Moscow wants" or "the Kremlin claims". When I would read in those days that "the Russians are invading Chechnya" I would think of my friends in Moscow and such formulations seemed about as accurate to me as Ronald Reagan's "Evil Empire". Today not only do...

    Venezuela will increase taxes on luxury goods, alcohol and tobacco to help shore up the government's finances, the top tax official said, as falling oil prices threaten the OPEC member's coffers. Buyers of luxury goods, including cars worth more than $30,000, will pay an excise tax of 15 percent, up from 10 percent, tax chief Jose David Cabello said late Tuesday during a televised ceremony with President Nicolas Maduro. The measures, part of a package of 28 laws Maduro decreed to bolster the country's economy, increase tax rates on products such as wine and cigarettes while eliminating some tax benefits...

It is incongruous for the United States to value the contributions of Cuban doctors who are sent by their government to assist in international crises like the 2010 Haiti earthquake while working to subvert that government by making defection so easy.

    A UCLA campaign to honor role model alumni for their idealism is drawing fire after picking avowed communist Angela Davis as one of its inspirational figures. The school-sponsored "We, the Optimists" campaign includes a banner showing a young Davis, with the words "We Question" under the image. While Davis' effort to rehabilitate her reputation has been successful in academia, some students object to her inclusion on Bruin Walk. Her selection as a UCLA optimist is not inspiring, it is unbalanced and perhaps politically motivated, Jacob Kohlhepp, a student at UCLA and member of the Bruin Republicans, wrote in a recent...

At a press conference with Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott on Monday, Obama said he continued to have concerns about Chinas actions. There are certain things that the United States believes.

    Russian President Vladimir Putin said November 4 that he sees nothing wrong with the Molotov-Ribbentrop non-aggression pact that the Soviet Union made with Adolf Hitlers Nazi Germany just days before World War ii broke out. The MolotovRibbentrop Pact was a promise of non-belligerence by either party toward the other. Just a week after it was signed, Germany invaded Poland, officially igniting World War ii. Serious research must show that those were the foreign policy methods then, Putin said to a group of young historians in Moscow. The Soviet Union signed a non-aggression treaty with Germany.

The researchers looked at 476 dead zones worldwide 264 in the United States. They found that standard computer climate models predict that, on average, the surface temperature around those dead zones will increase by about 4 degrees Fahrenheit (slightly more than 2 degrees Celsius) from the 1980s and 1990s to the end of this century.

It's a review and a defence of Diana West's book American Betrayal: The Secret Assault on Our Nation's Character (Amazon USA) (Amazon UK) , which was published last year and provoked much controversy, as you can gauge from the review itself. The way Joe McCarthy has been treated in America reminds me a bit of the way Enoch Powell has been treated in Britain: both were...

The researchers studied the impacts of changes in temperature on the body size of Alpine Chamois, a species of mountain goat, over the past 30 years. To their surprise, they discovered that young Chamois now weigh about 25 per cent less than animals of the same age in the 1980s. In recent years, decreases in body size have been identified in a variety of animal species, and have frequently been linked to the changing climate. However, the researchers say...

    I often share on my personal Facebook page posts by Freedom From Atheism Foundation (FFAF) . This group provides many snappy and ready quotations, slogans and images that are perfectly suited to Facebook and in general to today's many time-poor and attention-span-even-poorer people. The problem is that somebody who hasn't bothered to take the effort to examine a topic like the existence of God needs much more than a few lines or a graphic, which is why I think that I'll put the brakes on this habit of mine. The last straw has been the following exchange of comments...

    This week the New York Times ran two editorials pleading for a U.S. economic lifeline to the Castro brothers’ terror-sponsoring regime (i.e. to end the so-called embargo.) One editorial ran on Sunday the other on Tuesday. The second editorial contains the following:“Fidel Castro…has largely vanished from public view in Cuba. But the 88-year-old former president (italics mine) has not altogether abandoned the business of telling Cubans what to think.”Is the Times --at long last!--acknowledging a totalitarian streak in the longest-reigning Stalinist dictator of modern history? Sure sounds like it. Now please pay close attention as the editorial continues:“On Tuesday, Mr....

    Cuba stands ready to cooperate with the United States in the battle against Ebola, former leader Fidel Castro said in an article published Saturday. Cuba is sending about 460 doctors and nurses to West Africa to help fight Ebola, an effort that was praised on Friday by U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry. [] With pleasure we will cooperate with U.S. personnel in that task, the 88-year-old ex-leader wrote in the Communist Party daily Granma. He said it would not be to seek peace between two countries long at odds, but for the peace of the world. Castro did not...

    Had we not overcome the twin evils of Nazism, Communism, the consequences for the free world would have been cataclysmic. The consequences of defeat by this new twenty first century evil force would be just as dire Whether you seek its definition as an adjective or noun, you will find in any reputable dictionary two identifying components of the term evil: morally reprehensible and causing immense harm. The problem is that the first component and, to a lesser extent, the second are both relative terms. Whether an action is morally reprehensible depends on the moral code used to judge the...

    American Politics and Psychology Commentary for 12 October 2014Perception of the truth about the real environment, especially an understanding of the human personality and its values, ceases to be a virtue during the so-called happy times; thoughtful doubters are decried. This, in turn, leads to an impoverishment of psychological knowledge, the capacity of differentiating the properties of human nature and personality, and the ability to mold minds creatively. The cult of power thus supplants those mental values so essential for maintaining law and order by peaceful means. A nations enrichment or involution regarding its psychological world view could be considered...

    Most people when they think of Marxism, think of the Soviet Union and its abject failure. Indeed, most people feel that Marxism is not a threat even the Communist Chinese have embraces Capitalism, of a sorts. Marxism, though, is not only still a threat, but is on the verge of (if it has already not achieved) overthrowing the West. It is not the classical Marxism that focused on economic aspects, but cultural Marxism, which focuses in on immanentizing the eschaton by cultural and social upheaval.It is important to out the modern-day proponents of Cultural Marxism and out them for what...

    Sojourners President and Founder Jim Wallis, one of several faith leaders who are heading to Ferguson, Missouri this weekend to march for justice, is challenging Christians to put their faith ahead of their race when it comes to issues concerning racial relations. "If white Christians in America acted more Christian than white when it came to race, black parents would be less fearful for their children," said Wallis. Christians who put faith ahead of race would not be afraid to take on tough racial issues like the police shooting of an unarmed teen in Ferguson with their peers and fight...

    ...The lawmakers accused Obama of attempting to pass the buck onto organizations like the World Health Organization (WHO), which have advised against travel bans. Obama has said he would not ban travel unless the WHO reversed its position. [The WHO] has no duty to protect the lives and well-being of Americans, as you do. Furthermore, it has utterly failed to stem the epidemic through its own action. The responsibility for this decision is yours, not theirs, they wrote. The three Democrats Reps. Alan Grayson (D-Fla.), Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.) and Dave Loebsack (D-Iowa) are among the growing handful in...
