Supreme Court Justices Get More Liberal As They Get Older
There’s an old saw, often mistakenly attributed to Winston Churchill, that goes something like this: “If you’re not a liberal when you’re 25, you have no heart. If you’re not a conservative when you’re 35, you have no brain.” A person should start left and drift right, and not the other way around, the adage suggests.

Good. And I’ll explain why in a bit.

Reliving the 1930s In France?
In France, private sector unions are still strong and the law makes it difficult to fire or lay off employees. (Which, of course, also depresses hiring.) Air France has lost money for the last few years and has been trying to downsize; it recently announced that pilots, flight attendants and ground crews would be be laid off unless unions agreed to productivity improvements.

Unequal Justice: UK Favouring Muslims Over Non-Muslims In Court
There have been a couple of disturbing signs lately that the United Kingdom no longer aspires to have one law for all, that instead UK Muslims are entitled to preferential treatment. Both signs take the form of extending special privileges to Muslim women in judicial proceedings. The result may be to disadvantage non-Muslims vis-à-vis Muslims, while simultaneously institutionalizing the sexism of Sharia law against Muslim women.

High-ranking Met Police officer reportedly told staff not to wear the badge




Bernie Sanders and Robert Reich Are Confused by Economics. And Government. And Reality
Socialism is a failed ideology. It was the avant-garde approach to how to do government – in the Twentieth Century. The Soviet Union was the flagship petri dish. That conquered, infiltrated or ingratiated themselves with many other nations – to establish them as additional petri dishes (Hello, Cuba). We certainly now have a large enough, long enough sample set – and the results are in. The system is contaminated – Socialism does not work.

Fifty Years of Dangerous Immigration LegislationShare article on Facebook
Unlike other government decisions — say tax rates or defining the nature of marriage — those affecting immigration are both irreversible and profound. In that light, today marks a half-century since the passage of one of the least heralded but most significant pieces of legislation in American history.

Feminists Call The Cops When I Show Up. Here’s Why
I’m a slut, and I have been shamed. Yesterday I rocked up to the Amber Rose Slut Walk in downtown LA, alongside Rebel Media broadcaster and libertarian political candidate Lauren Southern. Event organisers called the police when they realised we didn’t buy into their barmy conspiracy theories about patriarchy and rape culture, and we were escorted from the event by the LAPD.

Anti-Asian Discrimination: The Hidden Secret of Elite Educational “Diversity”
In May this year Mr Wang joined a group of 64 Asian-American organisations that made a joint complaint to the Department of Education against Harvard, alleging racial discrimination.

Harvard Feminists Lie About Rape
No honest, decent or moral young person would ever want to go near Harvard University, a corrupt and decadent institution run by depraved perverts. Harvard women are particularly notorious for their shameless promiscuity — one Harvard girl boasted of her “freedom to have as many sexual partners as I want without being looked down on” — which is a major cause of sexually transmitted diseases in the Boston metro area.

The Democrats in NJ have picked a real doozy to try to replace Christie
Chris Christie’s presidential campaign may be stalled (to put it charitably) for the moment, but he’s surely thinking about his future. One thing that will not include, however, is another term as Governor. The Garden State limits candidates to two consecutive terms in office and Christie is already in the middle of his second one. (Just for the record, he could run again later, but he can’t be elected to three in a row.) Focusing on his prospects for a stay in the West Wing seems rather off topic at the moment since he’s still hovering at around 2% in the latest round of polling. So even if Jersey won’t lose their guy to Washington, D.C. in 2017, who will replace him?


Socialists and the dearth of babies
Several of my recent posts have focused on the American Left’s death cult, otherwise known as unlimited abortion. As I’ve stated repeatedly, the Left’s risible claim that abortion does not take a life, combined with its obsessive demands that the right to abortion be unfettered up to, including, and even after a viable baby is born has turned me from a fairly mindless, garden-variety, pro-Abortion, old-time Democrat into someone who is edging remarkably close to being pro-Life. Even though I can still accept situations in which an abortion is reasonable, I’m so disgusted by the Left’s death cult that I want to run as far away from it as possible.

Divided, They’ll Fall
The Democrats could be coming apart.

My Mom Just Died Of Brain Cancer. Here’s Why She Opposed Assisted Suicide
I’ll admit it, I’m an adrenaline junkie. And judging from the plethora of new TV shows like “Trauma: Life in the ER” or “Code Black,” most of America is too. Except that’s my life. I’m a Trauma Nurse. I eat, sleep, and breathe trauma.

Who’s Enthusiastic about a GOP Senate Majority in 2016?
Republicans in the Senate faced a brutal task in retaining the Senate majority in 2016 before the Democrats went to work recruiting candidates. Republicans will be defending seats in a bevy of blue and purple states, including Illinois, Wisconsin, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Florida. The Democrats, on the other hand, are only defending two purple seats, both of which are in states that are trending blue: Colorado (where the Democrats have a relatively strong incumbent) and Nevada (where Reid’s hand-picked successor will run in his place).

Equality Fetishism – The Reason Democrats Truly Are Both Stupid And Destructive
A Religion Based Upon Resentment

Democrats: Party of the Rich Revisited
I’ve written before that Democrats have become the party of the rich, and how this would scandalize an earlier generation of liberals from Franklin Roosevelt to Hubert Humphrey. A few days ago Thomas Edsall wondered about this in the New York Times in “How Did Democrats Become Favorites of the Rich?”

Sex assault activists upset reality doesn’t conform to their beliefs
Activists on at least two college campuses are upset that their universities aren’t showing the “epidemic” levels of sexual assault the activists believe exist.

The Coming Danger of the “Throw the Bums Out” 2016 Election
Forget experience, policies, and ideology in the 2016 presidential primary fights, in both parties. Voters have less concern over those traditional priorities for candidates in exchange for another quality altogether – authenticity. While pundits bemoan the rise of political novices and demagogues who have enough of that currency to prosper, that shift comes from a rational reaction to American politics over the last generation, and both Democrats and Republicans alike share the blame for the shift.

“The Psychology of Female Objectification”
The :discourses of heterosexuality” described by French lesbian feminist Monique Wittig are probably not the catcalls described by Lily Calcagnini, but the underlying idea is the same: Male sexual attraction to women is inherently oppressive.

A Bizarre Blast From the Feminist Past
Researching radical feminism has led me to many strange sources, few of them stranger than For Lesbians Only: A Separatist Anthology, edited by Sarah Lucia Hoagland and Julia Penelope, a 596-page compendium of lunacy published in 1988. Weird ideas leap forth from every page, as if the inmates of a mental health facility had been issued typewriters instead of thorazine.

Feminist Tumblr and the “Tampon Tax”
Perhaps the young ladies of Feminist Tumblr don’t realize it, but some societies actually have a system that ensures that males provide for women’s special needs.

How the libertarian resurgence collapsed
Say… do you remember Rand Paul? No, not Ron. The other one with the Senate seat from Kentucky. Yeah, what ever happened to that guy?

How the Feminists’ “War against Boys” Paved the Way for Islam
Some commentators like to point out that many of the most passionate and bravest defenders of the West are women, citing Italian writer Oriana Fallaci and others as examples. But women like Ms. Fallaci, brave as they might be, are not representative of all Western women. If you look closely, you will notice that, on average, Western women are actually more supportive of Multiculturalism and massive immigration than are Western men.

Malthusian Monkeys Screech of Doom
When Paul Ehrlich, John Holdren, and John Harte wagered Julian Simon $10,000 that the cost of commodities and natural resources would always go higher — and never lower — Malthusian monkeys were riding high in public and academic opinion. And even though the doomer-monkeys lost the bet to economist Simon, the echo-choirs of Malthusian doom continue to ring a loud and cacophonous song of calamity.

Moving the Goalposts: What Feminist “Rape Culture” Discourse Is About
You probably have to read a lot of feminist theory (and I’ve been immersed in it for months) to understand that feminist rhetoric about a “campus rape epidemic” isn’t actually about rape. There has been no such “epidemic” on America’s university and college campuses, or anywhere else for that matter.

American Conservative Union Vote Analysis: Marsha Blackburn Best Viable Candidate for Speakership
Blackburn, who’s considering running for Speaker and will discuss her potential bid on Breitbart News Sunday on Sirius XM Patriot on Sunday evening, would be the first female GOP Speaker of the House in U.S. history.

The State of Marriage
When I was a kid I was always highly amused by reading Agatha Christie characters refer to it as “The Marriage State” instead of just “being married.”
