    (JNS) Over recent days, foreign leaders, rulers and tyrants flocked to New York City for the 76th Session of the United Nations General Assembly, also known as UNGA. Did you listen to their speeches? I thought not. So, it occurred to me that I should provide you with the highlights. Only I couldn’t find any. So instead, I will treat you to some lowlights—lies, evasions, boilerplate and insults to your intelligence. Start with Xi Jinping, president of the People’s Republic of China, who pledged “to fight COVID-19 in solidarity” and “always put people and their lives first and care about...

    Don't be fooled by the Americans behind the camera. In today's Hollywood, there's one director -- and that's China. As important as U.S. audiences are, filmmakers know there's a bigger one. And they're willing to do anything they can to tap into it, even if it means becoming co-conspirators with one of the most evil censorship operations in the world. It's the biggest partnership no one knows about, and according to some experts, the most dangerous. The majority of Americans probably have no idea when they buy a ticket to the latest blockbuster that the film they're about to see...
  • Is Tea Partyers’ hate really that strong?

    Easter’s message is a simple one. It is about love and redemption. I didn’t see much love of fellow men in Searchlight last week. I heard a lot of hate, though. Do the folks who have claimed the Tea Party as their express ride to better government really believe they are more patriotic than the thousands of people who show up every day to work for the government — local, state and national — on their behalf? There are people everywhere who don’t carry their own weight. Those aside, does anyone really believe the people who have been attracted to...

    Cerebral scans for right and wrong "Can you name a scientific discovery that has ever added to our understanding of morality?" asked Discovery Institute senior fellow, Wesley Smith, over dinner after our recent debate with science reporter Chris Mooney in New York City. Fortunately, I could. Anyone who has ever taken an undergraduate course in moral philosophy will remember the moral dilemma posed in the "trolley problem": You are standing next to a switch in a trolley track and you notice that a runaway trolley is about to hit a group of five people who are unaware of their danger....

    I was holding Oracle CEO Larry Ellison's American Express card in my hand, thinking about the differences between the world's fifth-richest man and me. I was about to discover something we had in common. This story starts a few weeks back, when I bought a new Palm to learn French. One night, I waws writing a Visual Basic program to drill in French verbs, when I came across an especially tricky software problem I couldn't solve. Several hours later, I found something online called "2 Rent A Coder." You post a programming problem and people bid on solving it for...
