Is the World Becoming Fed Up? By Victor Davis Hanson

“A great pushback is awakening here and abroad, but its timing, nature, and future remain mysterious.”

Given European socialism, and given its therapeutic culture that assumes morality is relative and situational, it is quite stunning — especially to the Greeks — that suddenly debts are to mean not endless negotiations, haggling, blame-gaming, and contextualization, but are reduced to something akin to Calvin Coolidge’s snarky alleged quote, “They hired the money, didn’t they?”

Aside from the threats of Vladimir Putin and the wobbling of the European Union, Europe is being overrun with illegal immigrants from Africa, Asia and the Middle East. Once an impoverished foreign national arrives at any European shore, the European Union, either out of utopian piety or colonial guilt, feels obligated to accept him, without questioning much his legal status or the reasons for his arrival — much less why it should not extend such magnanimity to tens of millions of others who may well follow.

Britain’s Political Extremists by Samuel Westrop

Labour MP Jeremy Corbyn is running for leadership of Britain’s Labour Party, with the support of George Galloway.

In 2012, Corbyn agreed to speak at a Ramadan celebration with Abdur Raheem Green, a Salafist preacher who has spoken of a “Yehudi [Jewish] … stench.” In addition, Green encourages men to hit their wives to “bring them to goodness,” and has called for the killing of homosexuals and adulterers.

In the wake of Britain’s general election, candidates with ties to anti-Semitic extremists and terror groups are standing for important political positions.

In May, George Galloway declared that he was vying to become Mayor of London. Those concerned with Galloway’s work with the Syrian and Iranian regimes expressed dismay at the news.

Now, a month later, the Labour MP Jeremy Corbyn is running for leadership of Britain’s Labour Party, with the support of George Galloway.

The Greeks Say No Better a Euro Exit Than The Risk of Antireform Political Contagion.

Despite the pain it presages, Sunday’s overwhelming “no” vote at least leaves little doubt about where the Greeks stand. Greeks have rejected Europe’s latest bailout offer even after experiencing a taste of the ugly potential consequences of doing so—capital controls, limited ATM withdrawals and a banking crisis. Now they will have to live with those consequences.

It’s true the Greeks were given two bad choices, but they still chose the worst. Europe was offering more money to forestall a crisis in return for pension cuts and other reforms. Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras claimed a “no” vote would help him extract better terms—by which he means even higher growth-killing taxes in return for fewer pension cuts. The Greeks chose the Tsipras ultimatum strategy, so they can’t blame the Germans for what comes next.

Obama’s Renewable-Energy Fantasy By Rupert Darwall

Bill Gates recently noted that the cost of decarbonization using today’s technology is ‘beyond astronomical.’
On June 30, one day after the Supreme Court struck down the Environmental Protection Agency’s regulation of mercury emissions from power plants, President Obama committed the United States to the goal of generating 20% of its electricity from renewable sources by 2030. This would nearly triple the amount of wind- and solar-generated electricity on the national grid.

The EPA ran afoul of the law by failing to conduct a cost-benefit analysis before it acted to reduce mercury emissions from coal-power plants. There is no objective cost-benefit analysis that could justify the president’s target for renewable energy.

Recently Bill Gates explained in an interview with the Financial Times why current renewables are dead-end technologies. They are unreliable. Battery storage is inadequate. Wind and solar output depends on the weather. The cost of decarbonization using today’s technology is “beyond astronomical,” Mr. Gates concluded.

Thomas Lifson:’Million Person March’ to Take Down Confederate Flag in Columbia, SC Draws Almost Nobody

You might expect the usual disputes over crowd size when a leftist group calls a “million man person march.” Usually these feature aerial photos and arguments over how many individuals are crowded how densely into a certain amount of space. But with the “million person march” that promised ‘the flag will come down,” called by Operation Ferguson yesterday in Columbia, SC, this was not a problem. The only photo available of the event shows three people, all of them onstage.
The great Jim Hoft of Gateway Pundit spotted the utter flop. After waiting and waiting and waiting for photos:

Here is the only photo available from today’s Million Person March.

Only three people at the Million Person March…

Choosing Misery: The Culture of Victimhood and Ingratitude By Patrick Goble

Attention all armchair crusaders, warriors of the web, and victims of life, the universe, and everything:

Take a break from your e-rantings, your Twitter manifestos, and your Justrage railings. Stop screaming at your screens for a moment – they can wait, and the odds of them walking away are slim. Put down your Frappuccino, your Doritos, and your frozen pizza.

This is meant for you.

Not long ago, I happened upon an article on society’s newest scourge – one more aggressive than a microaggression, more fearsome than a raging Bull Connor, and more phallic than a good five-cent cigar – creeping sexism.

Terrified yet? Collect your thoughts, change your underwear, and get back to your screens as soon as you can.

Roger Kimball The ’70s Again, with a Transgender Bonus

Muggers are prowling Central Park once more while public nuisances shake down New York’s motorists and crime soars. Welcome to the increasingly bruised Big Apple of Mayor Bill de Blasio, his progressive agenda — and the inevitable results
Welcome to the 1970s! In New York, anyway, one of the decades Tom Wolfe denominated “purple” has made a stunning comeback. Consider crime. After a precipitous decline that began under the mayoralty of Rudy Giuliani and continued under Michael Bloomberg, violent crime has soared in the city. From May 2014 to the end of May this year, shootings increased almost 10 per cent while murders jumped a stunning 19.5 per cent during the same period. Meanwhile, Central Park has once again become a haven for thieves and muggers. “Police are investigating another mugging in Central Park,” begins a May 20 story in the New York Post, “the latest in a string of robberies that has residents on edge.”

Beware of Stage 1 Thinking Policy Makers Ambassador (Ret.) Yoram Ettinger,

National security and foreign policy makers should study a critical lesson of the medical profession: The failure to think beyond the stage 1 effect of painkillers may solve short-term problems, but will trigger long-term health risks: addiction, organ damage, nausea, headaches, dizziness, memory impairment and decreased cognitive performance.

National security and foreign policy makers should, also, heed the following observation by Thomas Sowell: “when most voters do not think beyond stage 1, many elected officials have no incentive to weigh what the consequences will be in later stages…. These reactions would lead to consequences much less desirable than those at stage one…. Most thinking stops at stage 1….” Sowell argues that “basic economics is generally misapplied because politicians think only in stage 1 – the immediate result of an action, without determining what happens next. Many politicians cannot see beyond stage one because they do not think beyond the next election.”
