  • Can Emmanuel Macron really rule France 'by decrees'?

    Macron wants to pass a series of laws by decree in order to speed through reforms — and not everyone is happy about it. But can he actually do it? Macron, France’s soon to be youngest ever president at 39, has major plans for France, including a “simplification” of France’s labor laws and cuts to the public sector and public spending. But to bring these plans to action, the president-elect has said he will not wait for the backing of the French parliament — which he he is unlikely to get a majority in anyway. Instead Macron is planning to...
  • Venezuela's Maduro calls for new constitution amid crisis

    Venezuela’s increasingly embattled president called Monday for a new constitution as an intensifying protest movement entered a second month amid clashes between police and demonstrators. After hundreds of thousands took to the streets again to call for his ouster, President Nicolás Maduro announced that he was calling for a citizens assembly and a new constitution for the economically flailing South American nation. He said the move was needed to restore peace and stop his political opponents from trying to carry out a coup. Opposition leaders immediately objected, charging that Maduro was seeking to further erode Venezuela’s constitutional order. …

    The left has done a 180 since its free speech heyday of the 1960s. What used to be anything goes, and protecting the First Amendment right to say controversial things, has morphed into a treacherous map of what you can and cannot say. Universities, which were once a bastion of free speech, have now become the most hostile areas of all. If you do not agree with the left — even if you are on the left — expect to be savagely targeted. You could lose your job, your career, and reputation over just one social media post. Not to...

  • Che Guevara’s Motorcycle Diaries: A Hippie Discovers Communism and Becomes a Monster

    The Motorcycle Diaries is not a “coming-of-age” story as it has been described by a number of commentators. When Che Guevara took off on a motorcycle journey across South America he was not a teenager; he was 23-years-old and therefore already “of age.” In my view, this book has nothing to do with coming-of-age issues, rather it is a “hippie discovers communism” kind of story. The Che Guevara that we meet in The Motorcycle Diaries is a hippie who drifts from place to place without any coherent plan. He is alienated from society. He sees the ill effects of materialism...

    Humour is the best medicine. It is also the best weapon against bullies, totalitarians, or anyone who takes themselves too seriously. Perhaps that is why humour is one of the first things curtailed when freedom of speech is threatened. We have seen various comedians in the US lament how Political Correctness is preventing them from performing on college campuses. We have seen Canadian comedians fined thousands of dollars for telling a politically incorrect joke. We have seen German comedians charged and threatened with extradition to Turkey for authoring a humorous poem about Recep ErdoÄŸan. We know we are not far...

    A little, that is. Shadi Hamid writes in the LA Times about why Islam isn't like other faiths -- as I've long been explaining here. He explains the reason the Quran is different from the Bible in very articulate terms: Contrary to what many think, there is no Christian equivalent to Koranic "inerrancy," even among far-right evangelicals. Muslims believe the Koran is not only God's word, but God's actual speech -- in other words, every single letter and word in the Koran comes directly from God. This seemingly semantic difference has profound implications. If the Koran is God's speech, and...

    U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch said Thursday that the DOJ has the ability to “reach into specific jurisdictions” that demonstrate a pattern of unfairly targeting minorities for minor traffic infractions and can use its “power of persuasion” to discourage other jurisdictions with a similar pattern from engaging in the same practices by pointing to the DOJ’s report on the investigation of the Ferguson Police Department. […] Lynch said that oftentimes small municipalities have “a system or structure of fines for various offenses ranging from your property issues and license tags that really do fall disproportionately on minority individuals.” …

    German firms expect exports to Britain to tumble five percent next year in the wake of the Britain’s vote to quit the EU, an industry survey showed on Thursday. The German Chambers of Commerce and Industry (DIHK) also revised its projection for 2016 to a one-percent drop rather than five percent growth. The figures were based on a survey of 5,600 businesses that export to Britain following the June 23 referendum in which 52 percent of Britons voted to leave the EU. Britain is currently Germany’s third-largest export market, buying up €89 billion of goods in 2015. …

    Britain’s departure from the EU rattled the stock market, refreshed the patriots, rankled the globalists, and rocked effete politicians. Even with the approaching storm, not a bad day for freedom Well, they did it! Great Britain ripped up their 40-year-old membership card in the European Union and may become “Great” Britain again: you know, sovereignty, security, and stability. Britain was a major player in the European Union, a bloc of 28 nations, making it the biggest trading zone in the world. Membership in the EU permits citizens of one nation to travel and live in other member-nations. Last year, Britain...

    That's not democracy. That's totalitarianism, and a globalist totalitarian state is the left's endgame Over the weekend, the last remaining pieces of progressive narratives regarding tolerance and democracy exploded. Only a couple of days after the UK voted to free itself from the shackles of it overlords in Brussels, Fox News reported that 2 million Remainers ostensibly signed an online petition calling for another vote—and left-wing Labour party MP David Lammy said Parliament should overturn the result. This is the true face of progressive ideology: voting and democracy only count when the “right” result is reached. “Rejection of elitist enlightenment...

    ...Speaking on Echo of Moscow radio, I said I considered Vladimir Putin’s decision to run for a third presidential term to be a mistake. A regular changeover, a periodical renewal of the political establishment was essential and Putin could have set an example. “New people would appear who could move the process on. He would be leaving a legacy with much that was positive.” Oh, dear, that put the cat among the pigeons! United Russia stalwarts, rancorous Internet trolls, professional political fixers, the whole motley crew took as one to berating Gorbachev, as if I had said something subversive and...
