Europeans Rebel Against EU in Ever Larger Numbers by Peter Martino Even in Southern Europe, at the receiving end of the financial transfers, people realize that the euro and the EU’s authoritarian and vainglorious project of molding the various peoples of Europe into a single state is leading to disaster. Even in the South, people realize that it is better to have a job. “This […]

North Korea Goes South: to Menace the U.S. by Peter Huessy The North is making progress in its goal of being able to deliver a nuclear warhead surreptitiously to the U.S., probably in an EMP mode, an existential threat to our survival.

DAVID ‘SPENGLER” GOLDMAN:THE SNAKE IN SCOTLAND’S GARDEN is the snake in Christianity’s garden, and last week it slithered into the Church of Scotland. It took the form of a screed denying the special claim of the Jewish people to the Land of Israel. By no coincidence, the most successful Christian communities embrace the State of Israel, while the least successful ones abhor […]

JED BABBIN: BENGHAZI BULL CHIPS The Obama scandal that will never go away. The Benghazi scandal won’t bring down the Obama administration. And it’s too early to decide whether it will sink Hillary Clinton’s presidential bid in 2016. There are plenty of other things quietly waiting to do that. But that scandal — persistent, patient, and always just around […]

The media coverage of Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has one theme and one tack. Like 30 of the 31 men on the FBI’s Most Wanted Terrorists list, they were terrorists who just happened to be Muslim.

While the New York Times dispatched its best and brightest lackeys to Boston to write sensitive
pieces on how hard it was for the two Tsarnaevs to fit in leaving them no choice but to bomb the Boston Marathon and then send LOL texts to their friends, it fell to a UK tabloid like The Sun to conduct an interview with the ex-girlfriend of the lead terrorist and learn that he wanted her to hate America and beat her because she wouldn’t wear a Hijab.

There are all sorts of jobs that Americans won’t do. Like pick lettuce, bomb the Boston Marathon and report honestly on the motives of the bombers. The only news network that operates outside the media consensus is owned by an Australian mogul who also owns The Sun.

Americans like to think of their press as freer, but it’s only free in the sense that it voluntarily puts on its own muzzle. European tabloids get into bloody brawls with regulators. American newspapers have nothing to brawl about. They will gleefully report anything that undermines national security at the drop of a hat, knowing that they won’t be touched, but there is a long list of subjects that they won’t touch with a million mile pole.

In Europe, editors risked their lives to publish the Mohammed cartoons. In America, on the rare occasion that they were depicted, they were usually censored. CNN, which could show Kathy Griffin trying to molest Anderson Cooper, without the benefit of pixelation or a suicide button, blurred out Mohammed’s face; assuming that Muslims would appreciate the sensitivity of treating their prophet’s face like an obscene object.

Disinterested Judges and Uninterested Accomplices: The Naïve, the Ignorant, the Insane, the Evil by NORMAN SIMMS When I listened to the three young male students (who were arrested for colluding with the two Boston Marathon Bombers by throwing away the fireworks and backpack of their schoolmate) saying they didn’t want their friend “to get into trouble,” all I could hear for a moment-putting aside the later thoughts of complicity in […]

NORWEGIANS: OUTSIDERS IN THEIR OWN COUNTRY BRUCE BAWER It just keeps coming, the propaganda. A new wave every day. Poured out by ideologues determined to flood the truth – to drown it out – in wave after wave of lies. “Norway isn’t becoming less Norwegian because it’s changing,” a  man named Salimi cheerfully reassured Aftenposten the other day. Salimi – who came […]
