    Thursday, April 28, 2016 The Unexpected Snake Posted by Daniel Greenfield The Farmer and the Snake A Farmer walked through his field one cold winter morning. On the ground lay a Snake, stiff and frozen with the cold. The Farmer knew how deadly the Snake could be, and yet he picked it up and put it in his bosom to warm it back to life. The Snake soon revived, and when it had enough strength, bit the man who had been so kind to it. The bite was deadly and the Farmer felt that he must die. “Oh,” cried the...

    Sunday, May 01, 2016 Big Green's Dirty Power Big Green is big business. The global renewable energy market is estimated at over $600 billion. Obama’s stimulus boondoggle alone blew around $50 billion on green energy. Annual spending is somewhere around $39 billion a year and that’s just the tip of the Big Green iceberg. California carbon auctions are climbing into the billions. And the endgame is a national and a global carbon tax that will allow Big Green to take money out of the pockets of every single human being. Environmentalism isn’t a hippie with a cardboard sign. It’s multinational...

    Sunday, April 24, 2016 From Slavery to Freedom Posted by Daniel Greenfield As another Passover begins, the echoes of "Once we were slaves and now we are free" and "Next year in Jerusalem" resound briefly and then fade into the background noise of everyday life. We can board a plane tomorrow and fly off to Jerusalem. Some of us are already there now. But will that make us free? Since Egypt we have become slaves again, lived under the rule of iron-fisted tyrants and forgotten what the very idea of freedom means. And that will likely happen again and again...

    Wednesday, April 20, 2016 The Fallacy of Focusing on Islamic Radicalization Posted by Daniel Greenfield There are Jihadists from dozens of countries who have joined ISIS. What do they all have in common? The official answer is radicalization. Muslims in Europe are “radicalized” by alienation, racism and unemployment. Neglected by governments, Muslim youth band together and become terrorists. Muslims in Israel are responding to the “despair and hopelessness” of the “Occupation”. Muslims from the rest of the Middle East are angry over their “dictators”. Muslims from the Ukraine? Who knows. Radicalization comes packaged with a set of local grievances and...

They rounded up four Florida tourists and four employees, forced them to kneel on the ground, and opened fire. That was how the Fountain Valley Massacre began.

But the claims of torture were undermined by LaBeet. At his trial, Ishmael LaBeet yelled, "I killed them...

    Wednesday, March 30, 2016 Surrendering to ISIS is the Only Way to Defeat It Posted by Daniel Greenfield If you’re keeping score, freeing Islamic terrorists from Gitmo does not play into the hands of ISIS. Neither does bringing Syrians, many of whom sympathize with Islamic terrorists, into our country.

Purim is a Jewish holiday often neglected outside the more religious communities in America and the State of Israel because it commemorates an attempt to exterminate the Jews. And we all know that stopped being a problem long ago. If Purim had culminated with some smart power diplomacy and a lesson on tolerance, liberal Jews might be more inclined to celebrate it. Unfortunately it ends with a genocidal madman being hung from a tree and the Jews fighting...

Even if you didn't like Reagan, taking shots at Nancy Reagan in 2016, after her death, is really despicable.

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.

    The stakes in 2016 are huge and the party is fractured. The rhetoric reflects a Trump Derangement Syndrome in which Trump is either a monster or a savior, instead of a politician. On the left, Bush Derangement Syndrome expressed itself in the conviction that he was unalterably and uniquely worse than every other president and would get around to declaring martial law and ruling forever. The danger of exaggeration is that previously unacceptable views suddenly become acceptable. Bush Derangement Syndrome made it acceptable for Democrats to descend into open treason by making common cause with Saddam Hussein, the Sunni terrorist...

    Bernie Sanders Beats Hillary in a Lying Contest The angry old leftist future of the Democrats. February 5, 2016 Daniel Greenfield Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam. The future of the Democratic Party was two angry old leftists screaming at each other for two hours to decide who hates capitalism more. With the MSNBC and the Democratic Party's logos on a red background, the stage was set for a redder than red debate. Red was everywhere, reflected in the thick glasses of Bernie Sanders and in the...

    Tuesday, February 02, 2016 Will Banning Muslim Migration Ruin the Anti-ISIS Coalition? Posted by Daniel Greenfield The most common attack on proposals to end Muslim migration to the United States is that this policy would somehow interfere with the coalition to fight ISIS. Lindsey Graham asked, “How do you go to any of these countries and build a coalition when your policy is simply because you’re a Muslim you can’t come to America?” “This policy is a policy that makes it impossible to build the coalition necessary to take out ISIS," Jeb Bush objected. The White House agreed, “We have...

    The left's greatest intellectual error is its conviction that the world can be divided into a binary power struggle in which both sides agree on the nature of the struggle, but disagree on the outcome. For leftists of a certain generation, it was class. Marx began the Communist Manifesto by laying out a primal class struggle throughout human history. For Marxists, everything in the world could be broken down to a class struggle with the wealthy oppressors on one side and the oppressed on the other. It didn't matter that this model didn't fit a reality in which Communists leaders...

    Friday, January 29, 2016 The Left's Manufactured Muslim Crisis Posted by Daniel Greenfield Men and women, some whose clothes were still marked with gray ash, walked dazedly toward Union Square. Many did not know what to do or where to go. So they kept on walking. They knew the country was under attack, but they did not know how bad it was or what might still be heading for them. Behind them lay a changed city and thousands of American dead. Ahead was the bronze statue of George Washington, facing into the devastation and raising his hand to lead his...

    Republican Debate Tunes Out Media Noise for America's Future Putting the issues ahead of personalities. January 29, 2016 Daniel Greenfield Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam. The media had an agenda for this Republican debate. It wanted to turn it into a sideshow and treat the candidates like players in a tawdry soap opera. With the media desperate to turn the Republican debate into a circus, the candidates proved equally determined to rise above it by focusing on the issues. "The entire lead up to this debate...

    Monday, January 25, 2016 Conservatism Isn't Dead Posted by Daniel Greenfield No, conservatism isn't dead. It just isn't nearly as influential as some conservatives thought it was. This shouldn't have come as a surprise after two Obama victories, the failures of the Tea Party and the warping of conservative institutions and politicians to serve entirely different agendas. Ideas only have power when they're vested in organizations that have power. Conservative organizations have very little institutional power. Those that do are not particularly conservative, but serve the agendas of an establishment that has self-interested goals. Conservative organizations lean heavily on messaging,...

    Thursday, January 21, 2016 Trolling is the New Politics Posted by Daniel Greenfield Your classic troll was an amoral sociopath or played one on the internet. His only cause was his own amusement. He advocated horrible and contradictory causes because it amused him to infuriate people. If he could get an entire group howling for his blood, he won. If an outraged media reported on his antics, he was a prince among trolls. Chaos and absurdity were his only agendas. But eventually the trolls who did it for the "Lulz" gave way to the "Moralfags" sincere trolls who were sincerely...

    The Democratic Party’s Choice: Lenin or Nurse Ratched But either way, the Democratic Party is the Obama Party. January 18, 2016 Daniel Greenfield 10 Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam. Two haggard old Democrats took to the stage at a debate hosted by Google, NBC and the non-convicted members of the Congressional Black Caucus to argue over whether America should be run by Vladimir Lenin or Nurse Ratched. If looks could kill, the glazed hatred in the eyes of Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders would have slain...

    The Ayatollah Takes Obama’s Big Night of Lies Hostage Iran crashes the president's State of the Union address. January 13, 2016 Daniel Greenfield The hype for the last State of the Union address had been building for months. There was a countdown, special Muslim guest stars and a pre-show featuring a mediocre indie band and Joe Biden. And all Iran had to do to steal the show was take two Navy boats and ten sailors hostage. Then, when Obama puffed out his chest and declared, “No nation dares to attack us or our allies because they know that’s the path...

Big Feminism, fresh from fighting pitched battles against swimsuit posters in European subways and other phantoms of "rape culture", failed the women who were attacked by violent Muslim migrant mobs in Cologne, Berlin and Hamburg who were the products of an actual rape culture dating back to Mohammed's injunction to his men that Muslim women must...

    Monday, January 11, 2016 The Tribal War with Islam Posted by Daniel Greenfield All wars are wars of equals. That's true in the sense that each side attacks the other in terms of how it defines itself as an entity. States try to destroy other states. Religions fight other religions. Ethnic groups and races engage in genocide. They do this even when the other side does not see itself in the same terms. The United States tried to fight guerrillas and terrorists as if they were modern states with their own industrial military organizations protecting their industrial core. This tactic...

    The only way for European women to have a future is to fight Muslim migration.The city of Cologne's website tells tourists that spending New Year's there is "something to write home about." It certainly is after the German city took in 10,000 mostly Muslim refugees last year. There are 120,000 Muslims already in the city making them more than 10% of the population. It has been estimated that Cologne will become a majority Muslim city by the last New Year's Eve of the century. When the anti-Islamist group Pegida came out to protest last year, the Cologne cathedral turned out...
