  • ‘The Economist’ Says Open Borders Could Make World $78 Trillion Richer: Here's Why That's Wrong

    National Economics Editorial ^ | August 18, 2017 | Spencer P Morrison
    Economics is an intellectual tool that can help us make better decisions, but it should not make these decisions for us. There are many rational reasons to sacrifice economic expediency for principles of far greater value—things like family, freedom, art, science, nature, or God. One of the reasons Singapore is so rich is because political dissent, and the uncertainty it creates, is extirpated. Likewise, China’s economic rise was made possible, in part, due to its ability to bulldoze villages, pollute rivers, and silence critics—all in the name of “progress.” Economically justified? Certainly. Rational? Perhaps—for Bentham’s most ardent acolytes. But for...

    When Carl Valentine dropped off his daughter at the University of Virginia, he had some important advice for the college freshman: Don’t forget that you are a minority. […] As classes begin at colleges and universities across the country, some parents are questioning if their children will be safe on campus in the wake of last weekend’s violent white nationalist protest here. School administrators, meanwhile, are grappling with how to balance students’ physical safety with free speech.

    Western Journalism ^ | 8/19/17 | Brian McKim
    In a pair of tweets Wednesday, Brzezinski said the president’s “both sides” reaction to the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, “created a permissive climate for violence.” She suggested that “blood and carnage” will be on the president’s hands and the president’s cabinet and staff will have that same blood on their hands unless they “speak out, step down or act decisively.”
  • Media just can't stop telling falsehoods about Trump's views on race

    The Hill ^ | August 19, 2017 | John R Lott Jr
    The media just can’t stop lying about President Trump’s views on racism and hatred. The media has been awash in praise for the joint statement that former presidents George W. Bush and George H.W. Bush put out on Wednesday concerning the violence in Charlottesville. The statement was viewed as a rebuke of Trump’s statements. The Dallas Morning News headline said, “Former presidents Bush rebuke Trump's neo-Nazi stance.” The New York Times called it “a rare joint rebuke of Mr. Trump.” The New York Times praised George W. Bush for leading the condemnation of former KKK leader David Duke in 1991,...

    Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg has come in for sharp criticism after being quoted as saying the Nazis and the extreme left had “much in common”. The comments by Solberg were published by the Dagbladet newspaper on August 11th in response to a neo-Nazi demonstration in Kristiansand — not to last weekend’s events in Charlottesville, USA in which a woman was killed by a far right demonstrator. US President Donald Trump was widely criticized by both Democrats and members of the Republican party for seeking to draw a parallel between Nazi demonstrators in Charlottesville and left wing counter protesters including...
  • Future of Balbo monument, a gift from Mussolini, uncertain [Chicago]

    Chicago Tribune ^ | August 18, 2017 8:20 AM | Christopher Borrelli
    Every now and then, for the more than 80 years it has stood outside Soldier Field on Burnham Harbor, the Balbo monument — a slender, 18-foot tall column of greenish breccia rock, perched at the foot of the bike path — has unnerved many Chicagoans. That is, the ones who knew its history. It was a gift to Chicago from fascist dictator Benito Mussolini, erected in 1934 to commemorate a celebrated trans-Atlantic flight of 24 11-ton seaplanes from Rome to Chicago. The namesake of the monument was the leader of that voyage, General Italo Balbo, an Italian aviator who had...

    The Democratic National Committee plans more than 160 events across the United States this weekend, aiming to seize on the outrage following last weekend’s white supremacist rally in Virginia. DNC officials have declared a “Weekend of Action” with a theme of “Rise and Organize.” A DNC statement says the plans are a response to President Donald Trump blaming “both sides” for the deadly violence that erupted in Charlottesville, Virginia. …

    Israel’s prime minister faced growing calls on Thursday to denounce President Donald Trump’s response to the racially charged violence and anti-Semitic displays in Charlottesville, Virginia, even at the risk of angering the American leader. Benjamin Netanyahu has remained largely silent during the unfolding crisis in Virginia. While issuing a terse condemnation of neo-Nazis and racists, he has said nothing about Trump’s apparent defense of the actions of white supremacists during last weekend’s deadly violence. […] Trump has acknowledged there were some “very bad people” at Saturday’s rally, where a woman was killed when a car slammed into a crowd of...

    Rep. Michael McCaul, the Texas Republican who chairs the House Homeland Security Committee, has scheduled a Sept. 12 hearing to discuss “the dangers posed by domestic terrorists and other extremist groups.” “On September 12th, we will hold a full committee hearing and have invited the leaders of the Department of Homeland Security, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the National Counterterrorism Center to discuss the most serious threats America faces,” McCaul wrote in an Aug. 16 letter to Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.). “I strongly encourage members of both parties to engage the witnesses on the dangers posed by domestic terrorists...

    He was not supposed to be back until Thursday, but President Trump’s Tuesday afternoon may have been too much for Joe Scarborough as he returned to air a day early. The Morning Joe host beamed in to co-anchor his namesake show from what appeared to be a living room in Maine to denounce the Commander-in-Chief after the comments he made during his Trump Tower press conference on Tuesday. 'He has now officially become the president of the white nationalist movement,' said Scarborough. 'The president has chosen sides, and it is very clear. Not only morally, but also politically.' Scarborough then...

    Why Is America's History White Washed I am puzzled. I see the agenda erasing evidence of America's flaws as it unfolds but I can't see who gains from that action. I can’t even see what is gained. I also have seen an ongoing effort to create a voting public less informed than previous populace. I see an effort requesting people to accept other peoples’ derangements or delusions. America is an amazing construction and America’s government is an amazing structure but America is not flawless. We constituted America in order to from a more perfect union. The story of how America...

    Philadelphia police arrested a 25-year-old Maplewood, N.J. man Wednesday after he was spotted throwing eggs at the Center City statue of former Mayor Frank Rizzo. The man, whose name was not immediately released, fled from the scene after egging the statue outside the Municipal Services Building across from City Hall. He was caught and charged with disorderly conduct and criminal mischief, police said. The vandalism was captured by 6ABC cameras on the scene. Authorities did not cite a motive. But particularly in the wake of the deadly Charlottesville protest, the statue has drawn new scrutiny of the former mayor and...

    The organizer of protests planned at Google offices around the country says he’s trying to decide whether to cancel the rallies due to concerns over possible violence. Organizer Jack Posobiec tells the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review Tuesday that he’s very concerned about threats of violence at the scheduled events Saturday in Pittsburgh and eight other locations where Google has offices. They are in reaction to Google’s firing of a software engineer who questioned company diversity efforts and argued that biological gender differences helped explain why women are underrepresented at the company. …

    Many 18-year-olds are registered for their first semester of college classes, but very few of them are registered to vote. As adults in a democracy, young people have this great privilege and responsibility, yet very few take advantage of the opportunity. Their disregard is not the result of indifference or immaturity, but of an overwhelming amount of new responsibilities. Assembly Constitutional Amendment 10 (ACA 10) is a bipartisan constitutional amendment that would lower the voting age from 18 to 17 in California. This may seem like a minor shift, but it would be pivotal in youth turnout for elections. At...

    The Trump resistance movement cheered when Democratic attorneys general in several states sued to block the president’s plan to bar travelers from some Muslim majority countries. But with far less fanfare in the months since, an emboldened coalition of Democratic state attorneys general has unleashed a torrent of lower-profile litigation they argue is necessary to protect public health, the environment and consumers from a Republican White House. State attorneys from Massachusetts to New York to California, often working together, have brought more than 40 legal actions against the Trump administration over the last seven months. The pace, which both parties...
