The American political winds are blowing toward secession

secession0107_image

There is a stark division in the U.S. between the blue and red states about how the nation should be governed. America is a house divided by ideological polarization far more complex than, but equally as heated as the conflicts that led to the Civil War.

BREXIT SHOCKWAVES: Markets are stunned. Commenters are shocked. But future historians may view this moment as inevitable.

The Long Road to Brexit

As it has done many times in the past, Britain will now renegotiate a new relationship with its near neighbors and with the wider world. And as has also been the case many times in the past, this will mean internal divisions and potentially painful conflicts.

The Meaning of the 2016 U.S. Election: American Political Decay or Renewal?

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump [Reuters]

The real story of this election is that after several decades, American democracy is finally responding to the rise of inequality and the economic stagnation experienced by most of the population. Social class is now back at the heart of American politics, trumping other cleavages—race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, geography—that had dominated discussion in recent elections.

BREXIT: THE MOVIE (FULL FILM)

BREXIT THE MOVIE shows a side of the EU they don't want us to see: the sprawling self-serving bureaucracy, the political cynicism, the lack of accountability, the perks, the waste, the cronyism, the corruption.

The American Left’s Dangerous Denial About Radical Islam

HOW STUPID CAN ONE PERSON BE? | The TexasFred Blog

President Obama’s response after the Orlando, Fla. attack was not only disappointing in its failure to recognize the ongoing threat from radical Islam, but likely endangered future American lives with its obtuseness. He couldn’t even bring himself to use the most obvious words of all to describe what happened: “Radical Islamic terrorism.” How can you even hope to stop something like radical Islamic terrorism if you won’t even call it by its right name?

The Death of Free Speech in Europe

Across Europe, cartoonists, artists and writers are forced to live under police protection, and also often face criminal prosecution -- all for the "crime" of offending Islam. It starts with censoring cartoons...is this acceptable or does it infringe on the West's basic tenet of liberty of thought and freedom of speech?

The Killing of Osama bin Laden

Bin Laden's teen daughter reportedly escapes house arrest in Tehran

It’s been four years since a group of US Navy Seals assassinated Osama bin Laden in a night raid on a high-walled compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan. The killing was the high point of Obama’s first term, and a major factor in his re-election. The White House still maintains that the mission was an all-American affair, and that the senior generals of Pakistan’s army and Inter-Services Intelligence agency (ISI) were not told of the raid in advance. This is false, as are many other elements of the Obama administration’s account.

Hollywood Is A Creative Wasteland

How did Hollywood become overrun with sequels, and why does it suddenly seems as if nobody wants to see them? The short answer is that the movie industry has over-learned the lesson that sequels perform well at the box office and has tried to sequelize every marginally successful movie. The deeper answer is that, on top of long-term structural declines in movie attendance, Hollywood is losing its grip on young people.

The End of the Old Israel: How Netanyahu Has Transformed the Nation

Benjamin Netanyahu discusses Operation Protective Edge | Max ...

One of the ways Netanyahu has retained power for so long—he’s now Israel’s second-longest-serving leader, after Ben-Gurion—has been by tailoring his politics to match public opinion. In 2009, he leaned toward the center because he feared Obama and wanted to dispel his own reputation for reck­lessness. In recent years, as the Israeli public has shifted rightward, so has he—which has allowed him to more openly indulge his true passions.

Free Speech Under attack: Curbs on free speech are growing tighter. It is time to speak out.

In all areas of life, free debate sorts good ideas from bad ones. Science cannot develop unless old certainties are queried. Taboos are the enemy of understanding. When China’s government orders economists to offer optimistic forecasts, it guarantees that its own policymaking will be ill-informed. When American social-science faculties hire only left-wing professors, their research deserves to be taken less seriously.

DO NOT TRUST THE MEDIA: Repressive governments are posing as journalists to hack into the computers of dissidents and other "enemies of the state".

Turns Out That Maybe You Shouldn’t Trust the ‘Media’

Global-Warming Alarmists, You're Doing It Wrong

Skeptics are accused of being ideologues, or in the pay of the fossil fuel industry, or simply selfish monsters who care nothing for future generations. The other side -- who expect big temperature jumps and catastrophic consequences -- are accused of being ideologues, or interested in making an alarmist case in order to further their own careers as climate change activists, or authoritarian monsters who are less interested in saving the planet than in forcing their own left-wing economic order on the rest of the world.

The Secret Army of Paid Trollers and Fakes Policing China’s Internet

Far from being a blunt instrument, China’s censorship of the web uses subtlety and distraction to keep its people off the streets. The Communist Government watchdogs know that the internet is essential for a modernising economy and they also appreciate that it provides the citizenry with a safety valve – one that also serves as a feedback loop that highlights potential trouble spots (local corruption, for example). But, most of all, they know that it is essential to keep people off the streets, which is why they censor it as they do.

Just another day in Orwellian paradise

Orwellian double-speak dominating climate discussion : Renew Economy

Orwell had a knack for observation that has kept much of his writing alive throughout the decades. He did, after all, outline eloquently the ways in which overt fascism is doomed for failure before history provided some of its most spectacular examples. Furthermore, Orwell told us that same fascism, hidden more cleverly by the dumbing of language and its use by elites as a tool for propaganda, could proliferate without casual observers—the proletariat, if you will— ever noticing.

Millennials and their Cultural Marxism: Welcome to our Brave New World

ZuckerbergWide

While companies such as Facebook and Twitter may well be simply appealing to their largest demographic for the sake of profit, they are also practicing the sort of blatant dishonesty and ideological censorship common among several socialist regimes, particularly those in Latin America — with similar dire consequences.

Saudi Arabia's Oil Strategy in a Time of Glut: Why the Kingdom Wants to Pump More

Saudi Arabia is locked in a battle for market share in the face of a U.S. shale boom, a re-emerging Iran, and a glut of non-OPEC crude. Longer term challenges, such as the threat of hitting a ceiling on global oil demand—perhaps in response to climate change—probably also shape thinking at Aramco headquarters in the eastern city of Dhahran. With 260 billion barrels of proven crude oil reserves still underground, the risk of stranded assets is a scary proposition in Saudi Arabia.
