Book Review: ‘Wealth, Poverty, and Politics’ by Thomas Sowell

Sowell’s thesis is that many factors explain unequal outcomes, contrary to left-wing dogma that rich people get rich by exploiting the hapless poor, an “injustice” the State must redress through income redistribution. Nothing remains of “income inequality” rhetoric and redistribution socialism by the time the last page is turned. It’s a relatively short book, but remarkably thorough.

Obama Bullies His Nation of Criminals For Rejecting ‘Gun-Control’

Normal people think coercive government power should be primarily directed at criminals, so the Left is constantly trying to make the entire population see themselves as criminals. The more collectively guilty we all feel, the more prepared we are to submit to the power of a self-appointed “enlightened” ruling class. Gun control is not a goal — it is really a means to an end, a vehicle the Left would drive to gain even greater power.

2016 Candidates React to Russia’s Campaign in Syria

In a rare moment of bipartisan agreement, both Hillary Clinton and Carly Fiorina have called for the United States and its coalition partners to establish a no-fly zone in Syria to protect U.S.-backed rebel groups – effectively challenging Russia to a military confrontation if it wants to bomb them.

Baghdad Cuts Off Wages, Pensions to ISIS-Controlled Cities

Iraq’s central government is cutting off wage and pension payments to Mosul, and other parts of northern Iraq controlled by the Islamic State. The move is expected to be one more crushing blow for people caught in the living nightmare of the Islamic State.

Heroes of Umpqua: Unarmed Vet Shot 7 Times While Saving Students, Armed Vet Told to Stand Down

Let’s talk about the heroes of Umpqua instead of the psychotic killer. 30-year-old Army veteran Chris Mintz was shot seven times by the killer as he struggled to protect students. His aunt Sheila Brown told NBC News he served 10 years in the military, and had just started classes at the college. She also said he was on the wrestling team and had experience as a cage fighter. Several sources say Mintz was stationed at Fr. Lewis in Washington, and was deployed during his Army service.

Turkey Warns of ‘Further Escalation’ in Syria Due to Russian Bombing

Turkey was surprisingly quiet during the first day of Russian bombing in Syria, but they were certain to denounce the action, because they have long criticized the regime of dictator Bashar Assad and have insisted his removal was crucial to resolving the Syrian crisis. The Turks are not terribly fond of the Russians either.


Cyber-War Is Too Easy, Effective, and Deniable to be Stopped

China’s success at perpetrating massive cyber-attacks against the United States – including arguably the biggest hack in history, the Office of Personnel Management raid – without any repercussions means cyber espionage is here to stay. It’s too easy, too effective, and too deniable to be stopped.


Al-Qaeda Fighter Claims U.S.-Backed Syrian Rebels Supplied His Machine Gun

On Wednesday morning, a member of the al-Qaeda franchise in Syria, Jabhat al-Nusra, posted a photo online of a colleague posing with his “brand-new U.S. machine gun,” which he claimed was handed over by the U.S.-trained Division 30. He even threw in a jaunty quote from Scarface: “Say hello to my little friend.”

North Korean Attacks Turn Chinese Village into Ghost Town

The village of Nanping in China has been learning the hard way that good fences make for good neighbors. They have a bad fence, just three meters of barbed wire, and they live next to some of the most unruly neighbors in the world: North Korea. Nanping has become a virtual ghost town because North Korean soldiers have been crossing the border to rob and murder the Chinese.

215 More Classified Emails On Hillary Clinton Server, Three Marked ‘Secret’

Many of the documents in this new release were “born classified,” under a presidential order that treats all foreign government information as confidential by default – a protocol Hillary Clinton was thoroughly instructed on, and would have been re-briefed on several times during her tenure as Secretary of State. One very good reason for the “born classified” rule is that the U.S. government doesn’t want foreign officials to be reluctant to share such information.

Pentagon Worried Iraq Will Share U.S. Intel with Russia

“The Defense Department’s second-in-command told the Senate on Tuesday the agreement came as a surprise to military intelligence and Pentagon teams are scrambling to make sure classified intelligence from the U.S. does not make its way into the hands of Russian, Syrian or Iranian authorities,” says a report at Defense One.

Obama Holds Bilateral Meeting With Russian President Putin At UN

Day After Meeting with Obama, Putin Bombs Syria

The inventory of aircraft and weapons Russia moved into Syria includes advanced air supremacy fighters and surface-to-air missiles, which would have no conceivable use against the Islamic State, al-Qaeda, or any other Syrian rebel group, as none of them have an air force. The planes were slipped into Syria using clever subterfuge designed to defeat satellite surveillance, which is something else no element of the Syrian rebellion has.

Obama’s Plan to Surrender Internet Control May Be Unconstitutional

One of the worst of Barack Obama’s many bad ideas is surrendering control of Internet domains to a shadowy multi-national organization, a move undertaken largely out of embarrassment over Edward Snowden’s exposure of NSA surveillance techniques. Under Article IV, Section 3 of the Constitution, only Congress has the authority to transfer control of such government property, so Obama’s attempt to give it away to foreign bodies without congressional consent would be unconstitutional.
