    Tuesday, June 28, 2016 A Socialist Les Miserables in Venezuela Posted by Daniel Greenfield A mob of starving people advanced on the presidential palace chanting, “We want food”. They were met by soldiers and police dispatched by the tyrant from his lavish palace decorated opulently with a golden sun, giant rock crystal mirrors, sparkling chandeliers and towering oil portraits. The scene wasn’t 19th century France, but 21st century Venezuela. And if you are wondering why you haven’t seen it on the news, it’s because Venezuela is a Socialist disaster area that was once being used as a model by the...

    After the Orlando attack, Obama ranted that it did not matter what we called Islamic terrorism. “What exactly would using this label accomplish? What exactly would it change? Would it make ISIS less committed to trying to kill Americans? Would it bring in more allies? Is there a military strategy that is served by this? The answer is none of the above. Calling a threat by a different name does not make it go away. This is a political distraction.”

    Friday, June 24, 2016 Games Overgrown Political Children Play Posted by Daniel Greenfield We don't have an adult political system. What we do have is a political system in which childish tactics are used to play childish games with adult consequences. As described by Dr. Berne in Games People Play, "games" are dysfunctional strategies that can be used by adults to elicit childish or parental responses. Childish strategies shift responsibility to the "parent" while still claiming power. An adult who acts like a child gets to control what happens without being responsible for it.

    It had to be either Muslims or Americans. And Obama and his people certainly aren't keeping Americans under their protection. Lynch said it's also important to maintain good relations with the Muslim community to ensure they are treated fairly. "Those communities are targeted as well, they are often swept up in this," she said. "And so we want to make sure that every community in the United States knows that they are under our protection." Swept up in what? Muslim mass shootings? Or that dreaded imaginary backlash which the left pivots to pretending is a more serious issue than the...

    In an awkward interview with the Huffington Post, House Speaker Paul Ryan threatened to sue Donald Trump if he were to ban Muslim immigration or build a border wall with Mexico. Considering the current track record of suing Obama over abuses of power, this is little more than a confession of impotence. And yet it’s deeply troubling that a top Republican is willing to go to such lengths to fight for Muslim migration or for that matter illegal immigration in general.

    Friday, June 17, 2016 Islamophobia Kills Posted by Daniel Greenfield The deadliest mass shooting in American history happened because of Islamophobia. Islamophobia killed 49 people in Orlando. It didn’t kill 49 Muslims. Instead it allowed Omar Mateen,  a Muslim terrorist, to kill 49 people in the name of his Islamic ideology and the Islamic State. Omar, like so many other Muslim killers, could have been stopped. He talked about killing people when he worked at G4S Security, a Federal contractor that provided services to the Department of Homeland Security and the State Department.

The usual answer is to point to Koranic verses calling for the conquest and subjugation of non-Muslims. That certainly covers the theological basis for Islamic violence. But it fails to explain why Muslims continue to practice it. Even against each other. Violence has become the defining form of Islamic exceptionalism. Optimists speak of reforming Islam.

Palestine is “desolate”, he concluded. “One may ride ten miles hereabouts and not see ten human beings.” The same is true of the Palestinian Museum which opened with much fanfare and one slight problem.

But the bias isn’t there because of the company’s new technology. Facebook is biased because of its reliance on the biased old media. Facebook’s trending topics wasn’t the automatic system that the company wanted people to think it was. Instead it hired young journalists with new media experience to “curate” its news feed. And plenty of them proved to be biased against conservative news and sources. Meanwhile someone at the top of Facebook’s dysfunctional culture wanted to play...

    It seems that a lot of people of Muslim origin have mental problems that cause them to shout "Allah Akhbar" while murdering non-Muslims. A Muslim terrorist stabbed four people at a train station near Munich while screaming, "Allahu Akbar". In between proclaiming the glory of Allah, he also shouted that his victims were all "unbelievers". A woman heard him say, "Infidel, you must die". The German authorities came to the inescapable conclusion that the attack had nothing to do with Islam. Instead the stabber had been "mentally ill" and was probably not even fit to stand trial.

    Secretary of State John Kerry got upset that Obama was stealing the treason spotlight from him on the Cuban getaway. So he decided to pull a Sean Penn and meet with a Marxist terror group that is on his own State Department's list of Terror organizations.

    If you can’t watch a ballgame in Cuba, the terrorists win. That was essentially President Obama’s answer for why he attended a game in Havana Tuesday between the Tampa Bay Rays and the Cuban national team. Asked if he considered not attending the game due to the terrorist attacks in Brussels, Mr. Obama told ESPN,...

    Monday, March 21, 2016 Activism U and the End of Education Posted by Daniel Greenfield The campus wars aren’t really about race. Race and the rest of the identity politics roster are the engine for transforming an academic environment into an activist environment. Think of it as the Post-Educational University. Or Activism U. The average campus already skews left, but maintains the pretense of serving an educational purpose. The demands put forward on campuses begin with racial privileges, but do not end there. These demands call for politicizing every department, the mandatory political indoctrination of all students and faculty, and...

    Wednesday, March 16, 2016 Youmerica Posted by Daniel Greenfield The paradox of the individualistic society is that it can only exist if individuals embrace virtues that are greater than their own needs and whims. A society where each individual acts as a little tyrant, pursuing his desires with total selfishness at the expense of everyone else becomes collectivist as the little tyrants turn to a series of big tyrants to get what they want no matter who gets hurt by it. Social compacts are the alternative to big government. Communities built around unwritten laws in which people do the right...
  • Why Israeli Jews are Conservative and American Jews are Leftist

    The Israeli left as a democratic political movement is dead. That piece of bad news was delivered by a recent survey which shows that only 8% of Israeli Jews identify with the left, 55% with the center and 37% with the right. In the last election, the establishment Labor Party had to dress up as a wolf in Zionist centrist clothing by renaming itself the Zionist Camp (it still lost). The left had to create two other fake centrist parties to stop Netanyahu, but just ended up having to roll them into his center-right coalition. The Israeli left still controls...

    Obama's final campaign against the Jewish State is underway. March 9, 2016 Daniel Greenfield    Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam. On March 9, 2010, the headlines were chocked with outrage over Netanyahu's "snub" to Obama. Six years later, almost to the day, the same rerun is playing on news networks across America. The White House is outraged, shocked and infuriated by Netanyahu's "snub." Obama is depressed at the snub and gorging on a pint of Ben and Jerry's Brownie Batter to get over the pain of...

    Bread Lines for Bernie Forget #FeeltheBern. Try #FeeltheBreadLine. March 8, 2016 Daniel Greenfield Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam. After Bernie Sanders visited the Marxist Sandanista regime in Nicaragua on a propaganda tour, he argued that the bread lines in major cities were a good thing. “American journalists talk about how bad a country is, that people are lining up for food. That is a good thing!” The bread lines had been caused by the radical regime’s socialist agricultural policies of land seizures from farmers. Those farmers...

    Friday, March 04, 2016 Everyone Except Hillary is Racist and Sexist Posted by Daniel Greenfield If a state doesn’t vote for Hillary Clinton, it’s racist. That’s the label that poor New Hampshire, the state just too white to appreciate the virtues of a white woman with dyed blonde hair who occasionally puts on a bad fake southern accent and switches from loving the Yankees to hating them, was stuck with after turning her down. Sensing trouble up the road in Nevada, Clintonworld tried to accuse Nevada, a state with a sizable Latino population, of also being too white for Hillary....

    Monday, March 07, 2016 Bernie Sanders Is Not a Jew Posted by Daniel Greenfield Bernie Sanders hates discussing his Jewish roots, but that hasn’t stopped his lefty Jewish fans from gnawing at the subject like poorly trained puppies chewing on old tennis shoes. Think Progress claims that Bernie Sanders is a "devout secular Jew". "Bernie Sanders Is Jewish, but He Doesn't Like to Talk About It," the New York Times coughs apologetically. (And the Sulzbergers ought to know.) A Forward editorial neurotically screeches, "We Need To Out Bernie Sanders as a Jew — for His Own Good". But Bernie Sanders...

    There's a point at which any decent person puts aside partisan rhetoric. That point would be death. Especially the death of a First Lady. Even if you didn't like Reagan, taking shots at Nancy Reagan in 2016, after her death, is really despicable. Post writer Lois Romano decided to write a ridiculously nasty smear of Ronald Reagan and his wife as the obit. About half the content seems to be about how much money Nancy Reagan spent on things. By paragraph 3, Lois Romano starts attacking Nancy Reagan. "As first lady from 1981 to 1989, Mrs. Reagan had a knack...

    Tuesday, March 01, 2016 Obama's Empty Judicial Chairs Posted by Daniel Greenfield On a hot day in June, the grandson of a bank president took to the floor of the Senate to denounce the daughter of sharecroppers. "I feel compelled to rise on this issue to express, in the strongest terms, my opposition to the nomination of Janice Rogers Brown to the DC Circuit," Senator Obama said. Born in segregated Alabama, Janice Rogers Brown had been a leftist like Obama before becoming conservative. When Obama rose to denounce the respected African-American jurist for her political views it had been almost...

    Here's what Republicans would need to do to stop their own front-runner--and what they'd destroy if they failed. It wasn't so long ago that the political universe was licking its collective chops over the prospect of a contested Republican convention, a delegate fight that went all the way to July without a nominee. Now, with Donald Trump notching his most decisive primary win yet--and looking to pick off several more on Super Tuesday--we're hearing that the contest will be over by the Ides of March. That means Trump could walk away with a nomination that almost no traditional Republicans ever...
