White "Genocide" Against Native Americans
...none of the warfare (including an Indian attack in 1675 that succeeded in butchering a full one-fourth of the white population of Connecticut, and claimed additional thousands of casualties throughout New England) on either side amounted to genocide. Colonial and, later, the American government, never endorsed or practiced a policy of Indian extermination; rather, the official leaders of white society tried to restrain some of their settlers and militias and paramilitary groups from unnecessary conflict and brutality.

White "Genocide" Against Native Americans
Through networks of nongovernmental organizations, Soros intends to ruin the presidency of George W. Bush "by any legal means necessary" and knock America off its global pedestal. "His view of America is so negative," says Sen. Joe Lieberman, who, like Gen. David Petraeus, has been a target of Soros’ electoral "philanthropy." "The places he’s put his money are . . . so destructive that it unsettles me." Soros’ aim seems to be to make the U.S. just another client state easily controlled by the United Nations and other one-world groups where he has lots of friends.

Why the Left hates Israel
When Israel was founded in 1948, that nation was the darling of the left. Many of that country’s founders were communists and socialists (that is why the first nation to cast an affirmative ballot in the UN vote for the partition of Palestine was the Soviet Union. They fully expected that Israel would be an important Soviet asset in the Middle East). When the rubber met the road however, the Israelis proved that once given a choice, people will always choose freedom over tyranny. The left was stung and hasn’t gotten over their bitter disappointment. Leftist support for Israel eroded and became real hate for the Jewish state that dared embrace real democratic values. This lesson hasn’t been lost by the Palestinians. Were they to adopt a truly democratic and pluralistic ideology, the left would drop them in a minute.

Love of Life
The West is dying because it has lost its love for life, and it is still struggling to dismantle many of the ancient rules that kept its behavior consistent with its continued survival, such as abortion, no-fault divorce, gay marriage, and euthanasia. But at least our enemies hate life even more than we do, so there will be no worldwide caliphate. The jihadis are full of ideas on how to destroy civilizations, but they have only a vague idea of how to build new ones.
This puts them ahead of our homegrown leftists, though. With the collapse of Communism, our leftists don’t even have a vague idea of how or why Utopia will spring forth from the ground once they’ve smashed evil capitalism. Their forebears at least had nice fairy tales about sharing everything equally, universal brotherhood of man, and scientific socialism. But with the modern leftists, I can’t even tell what fairy tale they claim to be fighting for.
The good news is that life’s requirements cannot be changed, not by any act of Congress, shift in public opinion, or act of mass destruction. Perhaps the world will burn, the streets will flow with blood, and millions will die. Perhaps. But none of it will last, because there’s no future in destruction. The future belongs to those who want to live, and who are willing to do what life requires.

Rachel Carson, who had once been trained in zoology, led the way in this arena of ill-founded conclusions regarding subjects about which she had no expertise. (i.e., DDT)
Butterfly expert Paul Ehrlich’s 1968 book The Population Bomb foisted him into public view with his utterly false predictions that the battle to feed humanity was over and that 10 million children would starve annually by the end of the 1970s.
Dr. Ernest Sternglass predicted in 1969 that all children in the United States would perish from the fallout of our nuclear tests.
Carl Sagan predicted a nuclear winter and that the early 1990s Kuwait oil fires would have a permanent affect on world climate.
Barry Commoner predicted the "virtual death of marine life" in rivers by 1980 due to zero oxygen levels caused by pollution from fertilizers.
Samuel Epstein alleged a prominent herbicide caused cancer and industrial pollution was creating an epidemic of cancer. These allegations were rejected by real science, but in the interim they made Epstein very famous.
Irving Selikoff, whose opinions served as a basis for Environmental Protection Agency standards on asbestos, predicted 40,000 deaths per year from asbestos from 1967 to 1977. The actual number was 522 worldwide.
In 1976 Stephen Schneider supported the view that the Earth was entering a little ice age. Now he is a leading proponent of the theory of global warming.
Even the revered oceanographer Jacques Cousteau was not above exaggerating. After a speech to UCLA students, a young reporter by the name of Dana Rohrabacher, who happened to be a scuba diver, asked Cousteau if he wasn’t being too pessimistic about the difficulty of obtaining fish, clams, oysters, and lobsters from the oceans in the future. Cousteau came up to his face and said, "Did you not hear me? Within 10 years the oceans will be black goo, totally dead, destroyed. The oceans will be lifeless."

$150 a Barrel
Former Shell chairman says that diminishing resources could push price of crude to $150 a barrel
Lord Oxburgh, the former chairman of Shell, has issued a stark warning that the price of oil could hit $150 per barrel, with oil production peaking within the next 20 years.
He accused the industry of having its head "in the sand" about the depletion of supplies, and warned: "We may be sleepwalking into a problem which is actually going to be very serious and it may be too late to do anything about it by the time we are fully aware."

Global warming ‘is good and is not our fault’
Global warming is an entirely natural phenomenon and its effects can even be beneficial, according to two leading researchers.
Recent climate change is not caused by man-made pollution, but is instead part of a 1,500-year cycle of warming and cooling that has happened for the last million years, say the authors of a controversial study.
Dennis Avery, an environmental economist, and Professor Fred Singer, a physicist, have looked at the work of more than 500 scientists and concluded that it is very doubtful that man-made global warming exists.
They also say that temperature increase is actually a good thing as in the past sudden cool periods have killed twice as many people as warm spells.

Feminists Fall Silent
Phyllis Chesler, an American therapist and psychologist who often writes on women’s issues, argues that attitudes grounded in thoughtless cultural "sensitivity" inhibit what should be the natural response of women. The result is that "instead of telling the truth about Islam and demanding that the Muslim world observe certain standards, you have Westerners beating their breasts and saying, ‘We can’t judge you, we can’t expose you, we can’t challenge you.’" This reaches the level of absurdity when gay and lesbian activists support Palestinians "who, meanwhile, are very busy persecuting homosexuals, who in turn are fleeing to Israel for political asylum." The gay community in Tel Aviv contains a remarkable number of refugees from Palestinian homophobia.

Conservatives in America are not loyal to the nation state. They are loyal to the PRINCIPLES of the United States Constitution. That’s the difference. They prefer tradition to fashion; they prefer social stability and slow, deliberate change to sudden, mindless revolution. Conservatives prefer small government to Big Brother. Conservatives believe in citizen participation in civic duties and organizations.
Conservatives believe in a free and decent society with informed, responsible citizens who have inalienable rights that cannot be trampled on by any persons, the government or any foreign entity. Conservatives are suspicious of government and demand transparency in government’s actions.
Fascism is the logical conclusion of Liberalism. TS Eliot, who I quoted elsewhere, gives a marvelous and incisive definition of Liberalism:
"By destroying traditional social habits of the people, by dissolving their natural collective consciousness into individual constituents, by licensing the opinions of the most foolish, by substituting instruction for education, by encouraging cleverness rather than wisdom, the upstart rather than the qualified, by fostering a notion of getting on to which the alternative is a hopeless apathy, Liberalism can prepare the way for that which is its own negation: the artificial, mechanized or brutalized control which is a desperate remedy for its chaos ... Out of Liberalism itself come philosophies which deny it."

September 11 in History
The most startling discovery was a book written in 1981, 20 years prior to the 2001 attacks, called "TheBirth of Christ Recalculated". The author, Dr. Ernest L. Martin, claims to have calculated the exact date of JesusChrist’s birth based on the celestial charts for that era. The date of Christ’s birth, based on the famous Star ofBethlehem, is calculated to be September 11, 3 B.C.. Dr. Martin’s findings have been accepted by manyscholars, theologians, historians, and astronomers. We also note that Jesus Christ has 11 letters. The crossesfound standing in the ruins of the WTC, and the dominance of the number 11 in the 9-11 events,make this combination even more mysterious. More of the story here

Islam and the nation-state
The nation-state is meaningless to a good Muslim, to the precise extent that he takes his Islam seriously. It exists; he needs its passport. He wants, in the case of the Infidel nation-state, to enjoy all the fruits of that state — the fruits that are produced because it is the creation of Infidels, and is well-run, productive, and has stability and the rule of law. The "refugee," or rather immigrant, generally comes from one of an assortment of badly-run Muslim countries where despots are the natural order, given how Islam inculcates the notion that political legitimacy is to be located elsewhere than in "will of the people."
Listen carefully to Muslim rhetoric in this country. It is always not-quite-what-it-seems-to-be: we hear, for example, the phrase "we are here to stay." What does that mean? Is that a rousing sign of loyalty to the American political and legal system? Or is it, rather, an aggressive and defiant expression — we’re here, we’re not going anywhere, and we will do exactly as we please, in putting relentless pressure on the American legal and political system, on its educational system, on its social understandings, and will never give up, and don’t think about trying to stop us — because "we’re here to stay."

Female Sexual Predators
The decade-long wave of sexual offenses committed by women — teachers in particular have exposed a cultural double standard: The public is more willing to accept the female abuser’s claim that she had a "relationship" with the victim. And in cases in which the male is a teenager, the sexual abuse is more likely to be dismissed as a rite of passage. The questionable, yet overriding assumption, is that women predators are somehow different from men.
"Men are demonized, women are diagnosed. Men are beasts, but women are troubled or mentally ill," said media scholar Matthew Felling in an interview with Fox News. In fact, accounts of women sexual offenders are often more titillating than harsh. Felling calls the news coverage of young, attractive teachers involved with their students "part crime drama, part Penthouse letter."

It’s amazing to me that the angry left is so hysterical about President Bush using his constitutionally valid war powers in a time of war, when FDR explicitly usurped those powers in peace time, greatly expanding the powers of the executive and the size and intrusiveness of the federal government. And once liberals gain power, they never give it back. Of course, the faces have changed, but 75 years later we’re still having to deal with many of the boneheaded ideas and policies put into place by FDR and his "brain trust." Naturally, not all of the ideas were bad, but that is purely accidental, since no one gave a thought to the long term consequences of FDR’s radical experimentation with the economy.
Speaking of which, this was also the first time professional "intellectuals" played a dominant role in a president’s policy making, to the detriment of us all. In science or business, bad ideas are quickly eliminated, but in government, the beloved abstraction of some academic pinhead can live on forever — for example, price supports for farmers, i.e., paying them to grow fewer crops in order to keep prices artificially high. That’s just one of hundreds of New Deal ideas that seems impossible to eradicate.

The Islamic Mind
I went to live and work in Saudi Arabia in 1998, and I "made my year" as expats there put it. That phrase means that I actually stuck out the whole year, instead of "running" from my contract, an occurrence so common that you only have to say "he did a runner" to explain why someone isn’t showing up for work anymore.
In Eastern Europe and the South Balkans, whenever I have gone to live in a place about which I had formed opinions, the actual experience of living there always radically changed those opinions, sometimes into completely contradictory ones. Most often, my academic research led me to form a beautifully coherent model, which experience turned into a semi-coherent collection of observations and tentative conclusions.
In the case of the Kingdom, I went there with a certain sympathy for Arab grievances, a belief that America had earned a lot of hostility from "blowback" from our ham-handed interventionist foreign policy and support for Israel etc.
I came back with the gloomy opinion that over the long run we are going to have to hammer these people hard to get them to quit messing with Western Civilization. And by the way, among "rational, fair-minded" non-interventionist libertarians, not a damn one of them has asked me, "What in your experience caused you to change your mind?" Instead what I get are gratuitous insults followed by insufferably condescending lectures about how wrong I am.
