    Tuesday, September 30, 2014 Science is for Stupid People Posted by Daniel Greenfield @ the Sultan Knish blog Every ideology needs to believe in its inevitability. Religions get their inevitability from prophecies; secular ideologies get theirs from the modernist fallacy. The modernist fallacy says that history is moving on an inevitable track toward their ideology. Resistance is futile, you will be liberalized. Marxism predicted the inevitable breakdown of capitalism. Obama keeps talking about being “on the right side of history” as if history, like a university history curriculum, has a right side and a wrong side. All everyone has to...

The seemingly simple task of bringing over the 18 million dollars left to him by his father hits some snags which require you to put in more and more of your own money.

This time it was Debbie Wasserman Schultz with “The GOP’s Woman Problem”.

    Sunday, September 21, 2014 The Rationing Society Posted by Daniel Greenfield @ the Sultan Knish blog There are two types of societies, production societies and rationing societies. The production society is concerned with taking more territory, exploiting that territory to the best of its ability and then discovering new techniques for producing even more. The rationing society is concerned with consolidating control over all existing resources and rationing them out to the people. The production society values innovation because it is the only means of sustaining its forward momentum. If the production society ceases to be innovative, it will collapse...

    Secretary of State John Kerry didn’t appear before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee to lay out an offensive strategy for defeating ISIS. Instead his real mission was a defensive strategy to protect Obama from critics on the right and the left. Obama’s delayed strategy hasn’t won over liberals and conservatives. It certainly hasn’t won over the American people. For the first time, Obama’s counterterrorism policy no longer has the support of a majority of Americans. Americans don’t believe that Obama can keep them safe. They suspect that he’s just trying to protect the last shreds of his fading popularity by...

Barack Obama is uncertain about what the definition of “war” might be. And wars are central to the duties of the man in the White House. Whether or not we’re in a war depends on who you ask and on which day of the week you ask him. Secretary of State John Kerry said that bombing ISIS in two countries wasn’t a war.

    Tuesday, September 16, 2014 Americans Alone Posted by Daniel Greenfield @ the Sultan Knish blog For the first time in American statistical history, the majority of American adults are single. 124 million or 50.2% of Americans are single. Some will get married, but increasing numbers never will.  Demographically a population of single adults means the death of the Republican Party. It eliminates the possibility of libertarian and fiscally conservative policies. It leads inevitably to the welfare state. Single people are less likely to have a support system that keeps them from becoming a public charge. Children born to single parents...

    Thank goodness we didn’t waterboard him or shoot him in the head on capture. Or drone him. That would have been wrong. A senior leader of the Taliban and al Qaeda-linked Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan (IMU) who was captured by Coalition forces in the spring of 2011 is now leading more than 300 jihadists in the northern Afghan province of Kunduz.

It had also thrown away the consensus that the collapse of the USSR had made American military power obsolete.

    “Patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel,” Samuel Johnson said. A few centuries later his fellow Englishman, Winston Churchill, quipped, “The United States invariably does the right thing, after having exhausted every other alternative.” It’s not true of the United States, but it is true of Barack Obama who, having exhausted every alternative that involved appeasement or pretending that ISIS wasn’t a threat, has decided to do the right thing. As long as he gets enough applause for doing it. With his approval ratings, particularly on American leadership and national security, lower than Assad’s, he decided to exploit September...

No pain is as fresh twenty years later as on the day it happened. The shock of the impossible becomes the new normal and then it becomes more background noise.

Compound death is more than a statistic; it is incomprehensible. The banal media coverage of September...

    Tuesday, September 09, 2014 Obama's "Iraqization" of America Posted by Daniel Greenfield @ the Sultan Knish blog When it comes to Iraq, Obama lectures the Sunnis and the Shiites on getting along and forming a government that won't exist for the sole benefit of a single group at the expense of the other. But in America he runs exactly that sort of government. Only 27% of whites see Obama as a "Uniter" compared to 78% of blacks. Those are Sunni-Shiite numbers. And numbers like that have consequences.  Iraqis are not stupid. They look at the news and they see Ferguson...

Then he went to play golf and accompanied Valerie Jarrett on a visit to the home of the CEO of Comcast. It was August and the Libyan War had been going on for months. NATO planes were conducting hundreds of sorties. But their commander was on vacation. That was only...

    Know your enemy. To know what ISIS is, we have to clear away the media myths about ISIS. ISIS is not a new phenomenon. Wahhabi armies have been attacking Iraq in order to wipe out Shiites for over two hundred years. One of the more notably brutal attacks took place during the administration of President Thomas Jefferson. That same year the Marine Corps saw action against the Barbary Pirates and West Point opened, but even Noam Chomsky, Michael Moore and Howard Zinn chiming via Ouija board would have trouble blaming the Wahhabi assault on the Iraqi city of Kerbala in...

    The more things change, the more they stay the same. Obama’s Iraq policy in 2014 is his 2007 policy all over again. The minimal attacks on Al Qaeda are paired with the expectation that Iraqis will unite to achieve a political solution.But what if they don’t?In 2007, Obama had claimed that American withdrawals would pressure Iraqis into a political solution. He was wrong. The withdrawals not only failed to move Iraq toward a political solution, but they gave Maliki and his Iranian allies the power they needed to marginalize the Kurds and the Sunnis.Obama went on insisting that the only...

That was only fitting since Obama had begun the Libyan War while hanging out in sunnier climes. His ponderous announcement, “Today...

    Tuesday, August 12, 2014 The Romance of the Fall Posted by Daniel Greenfield @ the Sultan Knish blog Robin Williams is the keyword of the hour. Seeing the rash of stories about him, you might think that he went out at the high point of his career. And yet those same people couldn't be bothered to actually watch the movies he was starring in. The closest he came to a starring role in the last few years was Old Dogs. It made less than $50 million. Before that there was License to Wed. A handful of people saw that. Last...

    Sunday, August 10, 2014 Hiroshima's Lessons for the War on Terror Posted by Daniel Greenfield @ the Sultan Knish blog In the summer of '45, the United States concluded a war that had come to be seen by some as unwinnable after the carnage at Iwo Jima with a bang. On August 6th, the bomb fell on Hiroshima. And then on the 9th, it was Nagasaki's turn. Six days later, Japan, which had been preparing to fight to the last man, surrendered. For generations of liberals those two names would come to represent the horror of America's war machine when...

    Friday, August 08, 2014 Friday Afternoon Roundup - Open Minds, Closed Hearts Posted by Daniel Greenfield @ the Sultan Knish blog  LEADER-SHIP The photo was retweeted by White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest, who had just gotten through explaining that Obama deals with genocide on a case-by-case basis. The White House also uploaded it to its Flickr page and it’s probably on Instagram and projected above the White House with a laser on the sky. This situation room photo is serious. It means business. Susan Rice has changed out of her PJs and into her power suit like she’s ready...

    You can tell how bad a crisis is based on the staged photos that Obama’s official propaganda photog deploys for action.On August 2nd, the situation was only mildly severe, so Pete Souza gave us this photo of Obama leaning back in the White House while chatting with Susan Rice and an NSA guy. But then major newspapers (the kind his donors read) started talking about genocide in Iraq and Obama’s inaction. So after signing off on some aid drops, after a whole bunch of non-Muslim Yazidi kids had died of thirst, this photo was deployed for action.The photo was retweeted...

    Thursday, August 07, 2014 Are All Dead Children Created Equal? Posted by Daniel Greenfield @ the Sultan Knish blog While furious mobs of leftists draped in Keffiyahs and corn syrup were shrieking about Gaza in the public squares of every major city, ISIS was continuing its genocidal advance on Baghdad. In the last 24 hours, the Yazidis, a non-Muslim minority, fled ISIS to a mountaintop where their children are dying of thirst.  The stark reality of their plight, caught between thirst and a genocidal army, is in sharp contrast to the phony claims made about Gaza where truckloads of goods...

    Tuesday, August 05, 2014 The UNRWA is Hamas Posted by Daniel Greenfield @ the Sultan Knish blog The UNRWA is on the front lines of the Hamas War in Gaza. In the headlines, its schools are forever being fired on or found to be stockpiling rockets. If individual Gazans are being used as human shields, the UNRWA often seems as if it is one big organizational human shield. But the UNRWA isn't Hamas' human shield. The UNRWA is Hamas. The "UN" part of the UNRWA, the blue logos and symbols, fool us into thinking of it as an international humanitarian...

    Saturday, August 02, 2014 One Million Ceasefires Posted by Daniel Greenfield @ the Sultan Knish blog If you like cease-fires, then this is a great time to be alive. Those Israelis who weren't shot in the head by  Hamas terrorists (whom Andrew Sullivan insists weren't real Hamas terrorist, trading in his obsession with Sarah Palin's rogue pregnancy for a new conspiracy theory) or killed by a Hamas rocket, encounter almost as many cease-fires in a given day as terrorist attacks. A cease-fire comes along every few minutes and it can last anywhere from a minute to an hour to a...

    Friday, August 01, 2014 Friday Afternoon Roundup - Hamasbara Posted by Daniel Greenfield @ the Sultan Knish blog SUICIDE JOURNALISM These tactics, born out of the Twitter age and the complete collapse of journalistic ethics, aren’t just a defense of Islamic terrorism, but they also borrow some of the tactics of the terrorists they defend. Hamasbara is less dependent on developed stories and more on Tweets and blog posts. Its practitioners are just activists with a media forum. Their smear campaigns depend on quick hit and run attacks. They bring a story into being out of thin air and move...
