“No Extinctions”: Polar Bears Survived Periods When The Arctic Had No Ice

Graph vs. Graph = Political Journalism
Most people have no trouble relating to temperature, because they use it every day when they set the thermostat in their homes, adjust the temperature dial on an oven, or watch a weather report on TV. On the other hand, practically no one recognizes a temperature anomaly, the yardstick for measuring man-made global warming. That’s because outside of climate studies, no one uses it.

Kurds attack Assyrian Christian village in northern Syria
The collapse of Syria has set loose forces that the Assad regime had either contained or appropriated to prop up its own rule, putting ethnic and religious factions in dangerous new combinations and conflicts. One of those conflicts might confound US policy and the popular conception of the nature of the fight and the fighters. Earlier this week, Kurdish forces based in Syria attacked an Assyrian Christian enclave in the northeast, not long after a series of bombings swept through its restaurants.

Insane, Race-Obsessed Democrats Freak Out Over Use of the Word “Child” in GOP Debate
Well, we know Democrats hate the word child since they’ve been busy aborting 50 million of them the past 40 years, but for sheer nuttiness, the whining over GOP candidates calling Obama a child is quite amusing.

Packs of Germans conduct revenge attacks after New Years Eve sex assaults
As Glenn has written about American law enforcement, “Police don’t actually protect law-abiding citizens from criminals so much as they protect criminals from the much-rougher justice they’d get in the absence of a legal system. Burglars would be hung from lampposts, and shoplifters would be beaten and tossed into the gutter if there were no police, as in fact happens in countries where there isn’t a reliable justice system and a civil-society culture that restrains vigilantism. Reminder to the criminal class: Ultimately, we’re not stuck in this country with you. You’re stuck in this country with us.”
The Migrant Sex Assaults: “Uncovered Meat”
Not a single mainstream news outlet has identified the approximately 1,000 men who congregated by the main train station in Cologne, Germany, on New Year’s Eve and raped and sexually assaulted hundreds of women — or their counterparts who did the same thing in Zurich, Helsinki, and elsewhere — as Muslims. But there is little doubt that they were indeed Muslim, since they have been identified as migrants and most of the migrants are Muslims.

Legal immigration has historically been classically liberal and a great boon for the United States.
What Explains the Vicious Left?
When politics becomes a religion, nonbelievers must be punished.
Those The Gods Wish To Destroy
Much of modernity often resembles a form of madness. Failed strategies are tried relentlessly again and again with the expectation that, somehow, this time the outcome will be different. Truths that are self-apparent must be denied for if these truths were spoken aloud the entire shaky foundation upon which everything has been based would be rocked to its core, and even Cathedrals themselves might be brought crashing down. If you need evidence of this look no further than the shameful reaction we have seen in the last few days to the news coming out of Germany.
Humanities: Their Own Worst Enemy
As a career academic, I try to be optimistic about our colleges and universities, particularly the fate of the humanities. But even optimists will find their hearts sinking at this interview of Sidonie Smith, who holds a named chair in the humanities at the University of Michigan. Smith is the author of a new book, Manifesto for the Humanities: Transforming Doctoral Education in Good Enough Times.
Meet the Cry-Bully: a hideous hybrid of victim and victor
In the 1970s, there was a big difference between bullies and cry-babies. Your mum would have preferred you to hang around with the latter, but sometimes the former had a twisted charisma so strong that you found yourself joining in the taunts of “Onion Head!” at some poor unfortunate creature sporting a cranium of a somewhat allium caste.
America Used To Know How To Assimilate Immigrants
Why did Mussolini’s siren song of fascism fall on deaf ears with Italian immigrants, while the sadistic song of terror today finds a receptive audience among Arabs with long ties here?
How To Raise Children Who Can Handle Freedom
It is not enough for me to teach my children to shoot holes in The New York Times with their favorite sidearm or to deliver impromptu lectures on American history.
The surreal whimper ending Western civilization
Benjamin Franklin, when asked if America was a republic or a monarchy, famously replied “A republic, if you can keep it.” What the Founders probably could not imagine was the way in which the American experiment — indeed, the entire Enlightenment experiment — was going to end. They imagined that people would gravitate towards tyranny. They could not have imagined, however, that the West was lapse into suicidal insanity on its path to that tyranny.
Bulldozing Monuments and the War on American History
On December 17, the New Orleans City Council voted to remove four Confederate statues from the city, using obscure “nuisance” laws to strip these over 100-year-old historic monuments from their places of display.
Hillary’s “White Privilege” Self-Abasement
Yesterday Hillary Clinton appeared at something called the Black and Brown Forum, which may be good preparation for leaving the country black and blue from the bruises of liberalism. She was asked to reflect on her own “white privilege,” and she didn’t miss the opportunity to abase herself as fully as possible. But what, in her answer, actually connected to the pallor of her skin? Nothing, that I can see. And why, I’m wondering, are we supposed to feel guilty about, and apologize for, growing up in loving, stable, middle class households as she describes? This can’t end well for liberalism.
GOP voters are refusing to fall in line
According to conventional wisdom, the GOP nominates the guy whose turn it is, while the Democrats look for a savior. As Bill Clinton once said, “In every presidential election, Democrats want to fall in love. Republicans just fall in line.”

Two Books and the End of the CA GOP
Sometimes the impact of a book is not just what’s in the book, but when you read it.
Courtesy Is Now “Rape Culture”
In an astounding leap of feminist logic, Berkeley law student Courtney Fraser condemns chivalry as “benevolent sexism,” blaming “sexual violence against women” on “the perpetuation of rape culture, which normalizes this violence.” Of course, “the age of chivalry is gone,” as Edmund Burke observed in 1790, but feminists are fiercely determined to eradicate whatever vestiges of the “unbought grace of life” yet remain.
I’m Not a Feminist—Even Though I Attend a Women’s College
As a student at Barnard College, one of the few women’s colleges in America, identifying as a feminist is de rigueur. Just like lamenting the cost of tuition or complaining about dining hall food, feminist ideology is a hallmark of the conversations here. Yet, I adamantly shun the contemporary feminist movement that sweeps liberal arts campuses like mine, and you should too.
The West’s Great Folly: Believing Old Empires Had Gone “Progressive,” Too
Founded in 1549 by Ivan IV the Terrible as the Ambassadors College (Possolski Prikaz) and reorganized in 1720 by Peter I the Great as a Western-style Foreign Affairs College, the Russian service contributed as effectively as the military to the country’s steady aggrandizement. It did not vanish in 1917, but switched allegiance to the Soviet regime, much as the Ottoman service rallied to Kemal’s Republic, and helped it recover most of the tsars’ lands in just a few years.
Progressives Want the U.S. to Imitate a Dying Europe
For those of us who love comedy, one of the most delightful ironies of progressivism is how regressive it is, how mired in the past. While conservatives gather to discuss fresh reformist ideas on how to fight poverty and keep a free society afloat, all progressives ever do is reach into their Magic Box of Tomorrow and draw out the same sclerotic socialism that’s been poisoning the lives of nations since at least the 19th century.
How Badly Has the U.S. Been Humiliated? Let’s Count the Ways
Paul has offered thoughts on the release of the U.S. sailors, all of which I agree with. I want to add a few further observations.

The Leftist Intellectuals Hovering Over the Campus
Political correctness – the academic aping of the class struggle — has increasingly generated campus hijinks unintentionally redolent of the cartoonist Al Capp’s 1960s depiction of S.W.I.N.E. (Students Wildly Indignant about Nearly Everything). Recently, referring to the plague of campus hoaxes regarding rape and race, capped off by the ruckus at Oberlin College because of the cultural “disrespect” shown by serving General Tso’s Chicken with steamed instead of fried rice, I was asked by a well-educated friend, “how did academia come to this sorry pass?”

Deep thoughts from a bisexual radical feminist in the Midwest
What Women’s Studies Teaches
Toni Airaksinen (@Toni_Airaksinen on Twitter) attends elite Barnard College, but she is on scholarship and comes from a blue-collar Midwestern background, which probably accounts for both her common sense and extraordinary courage.
