Internal Secession and the Road to Ruin: The U.S.A. is Two Different Countries

http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-sz8ZNlSSoEs/T13V7omhW2I/AAAAAAAABUQ/_On42SqPXhs/s1600/amerika.png

Trump did not cause the deep division in the country. It caused him. There are two very different Americas. I suspect  that the half of the country that voted for Trump, that voted with wild enthusiasm, that roared at huge rallies, was not so  much voting for Trump as against the other America. It was just that they had never had a chance before. The two countries have little in common and do not belong on the same geography.

The student Left’s culture of intolerance is creating a new generation of conservatives

Milo Yiannopoulos speaks at the Mathematics building at the University of Colorado in Boulder, Colorado.

With all of this book-burning and platform-denying madness sweeping up much of the media’s interest in campus culture, the gradual rise of another group of students has gone under-reported. British and American millennials and post-millennials – also known as ‘Gen Z’ – are warming to conservatism.

How Europe became so rich: In a time of great powers and empires, just one region of the world experienced extraordinary economic growth. How?

http://therichest.imgix.net/2014/05/Vatican-city.jpg?auto=format&w=1500&h=843&q=40&lossless=1

Europe’s success was not the result of any inherent superiority of European (much less Christian) culture. It was rather what is known as a classical emergent property, a complex and unintended outcome of simpler interactions on the whole. The modern European economic miracle was the result of contingent institutional outcomes. It was neither designed nor planned. But it happened, and once it began, it generated a self-reinforcing dynamic of economic progress that made knowledge-driven growth both possible and sustainable.

Blood and oil, and the disturbing truth about Saudi Arabia

https://hbr.org/resources/images/article_assets/2015/01/JAN15_30_126542063.jpg

There is an important reason why America should wean itself of Saudi oil: the governing monarchy of Saudi Arabia. Neither liberals nor the federal government want to consider life in Saudi Arabia; that their citizens live in a place more attuned to the Dark Ages than the New Millennium. The very people that stand up for those that cannot demand equal rights are gleefully driving around with Saudi oil sloshing in the gas tanks of their Volvos and Saabs.

European Disunion: Germany’s Dilemma

http://blogs.larioja.com/entrevisillos/files/2012/01/angela-merkel.jpg

It might seem counterintuitive to argue that Germany, with the largest economy in Europe and a dominant position in the European Union, finds itself struggling politically on the continent. Indeed not so long ago the dominant narrative spoke of Berlin’s confident leadership and increasing EU integration for the foreseeable future. But narratives, even ones that have lasted decades, can change quickly; today the cross-currents of European politics have shifted abruptly away from Berlin’s vision for a more tightly integrated European Union.

Exposed: How world leaders were duped into investing billions over manipulated global warming data

http://chathamjournal.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/01/time-global-warming-hoax.jpg

The Mail on Sunday reveals a landmark paper exaggerated global warming. It was rushed through and timed to influence the Paris agreement on climate change. America’s National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration broke its own rules. The report claimed the pause in global warming never existed, but it was based on misleading, ‘unverified’ data.

THE MYTH OF WHITE PRIVILEGE

White privilege concept

Boiled down to its core, white privilege means everything is whitey’s fault. According to Wikipedia “white privilege” is a term for societal privileges that benefit people identified as white in Western countries, beyond what is commonly experienced by non-white people under the same social, political or economic circumstances.

WHY HOLLYWOOD AS WE KNOW IT IS ALREADY OVER

http://www.sandersphoto.com/BWSitePhotos/Fiction/FictionSite/StormOverHollywoodSite.jpg

Hollywood, these days, seems remarkably poised for disruption. Its audiences increasingly prefer on-demand content, its labor is costly, and margins are shrinking. Yet when I ask people in Hollywood if they fear such a fate, their response is generally one of defiance. Film executives are smart and nimble, but many also assert that what they do is so specialized that it can’t be compared to the sea changes in other disrupted media. “We’re different,” one producer recently told me. “No one can do what we do.” That response, it’s worth recalling, is what many book, newspaper, and magazine editors and record producers once said. Oops.

Osama bin Laden’s Secret Masturbation Fatwa: How the sexual torment of Islamic radicals helps explain the genesis of jihadi violence.

Osama bin Laden’s Secret Masturbation Fatwa

It is well-known that bin Laden was a fastidious and overbearing micromanager. And although it has been widely reported that he was in possession of a porn stash at his Abbottabad compound, it will no doubt come as a surprise that bin Laden, the foremost jihadi of his generation, had thought long and hard (no pun intended) on the issue of masturbation, as has current al Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri.

Is ISIS Breaking Apart? What Its Media Operations Suggest

http://media2.s-nbcnews.com/i/newscms/2014_36/649236/140904-isis-mosul-6a_61818bd973bea45f869989537e5308ea.jpg

Over the next few years, ISIS is sure to break apart further. As it does, it will likely walk down one of two paths. In the first possibility, its disintegration could wind up giving more weight to the group’s center of gravity, even as it becomes weaker overall. Alternatively, it could follow the example of al Qaeda in the 2000s and break down in a way that will diminish the influence of its core in Iraq and Syria while providing momentum to its provincial operations in such places as Afghanistan, Libya, the Sinai Peninsula, and Yemen.

THE DESPERATE BATTLE TO DESTROY ISIS: A swat team of Iraqis, all of whom have suffered at the hands of terrorists, join the fight to retake Mosul—and plan to exact revenge.

Aside from martial aptitude, there were two principal requirements for recruits: they had to have been wounded by ISIS or its Islamist precursors—either physically, by bullets and blasts, or psychically, by the death of a loved one—and they had to crave revenge.

U.S. Media Ignore Mexican President’s Ties to Drug Cartels

Enrique Pena Nieto

U.S. news outlets appear to have forgotten that the Juarez Cartel and multiple acts of corruption have been linked to the election of the current Mexican President, Enrique Peña Nieto. The Mexican president’s ties to cartels, the mysterious release from prison of major cartel figures during his presidency, and the fact that regions of Mexico are under operational control of these paramilitary transnational criminal organizations during his presidency are rarely, if ever, reported in the U.S. The outrageous number of journalists who have been murdered or who have simply disappeared in Peña Nieto’s Mexico is also rarely reported.

The Jacksonian Revolt: American Populism and the Liberal Order

http://www.gospeltoday.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/10/silent_majority-1024x576.jpg

Western elites believed that in the twenty-first century, cosmopolitanism and globalism would triumph over atavism and tribal loyalties. They failed to understand the deep roots of identity politics in the human psyche and the necessity for those roots to find political expression in both foreign and domestic policy arenas. And they failed to understand that the very forces of economic and social development that cosmopolitanism and globalization fostered would generate turbulence and eventually resistance, as Gemeinschaft (community) fought back against the onrushing Gesellschaft (market society), in the classic terms sociologists favored a century ago.

Trump’s Currency War Against Germany Could Destroy the EU (and that might be the point)

Trump’s Currency War Against Germany Could Destroy the EU

The American attack plays into German domestic politics, and into critics of Angela Merkel, and sets the stage for an election campaign that will be fought around two policies — the euro and refugees — on which the American government will play an opposition role.

Why Latin America and Africa Struggle to Grow

Latin America and Africa each have worrying deficiencies. In Latin America, most countries haven’t had much positive structural change -- their industries are getting better at doing what they do, but there is no movement of resources from low-value to high-value sectors. In Africa, meanwhile, the problem is reversed -- African economies do a good job at reallocation, but most of their industries haven’t become more productive.
