More Tough Times For the Church of Global Warming

The Church of Global Warming will surely hang on long after the "global warming pause" hits its third or fourth decade, because it's far too useful to greedy politicians. However, a new study from the Max Planck Institute for Meteorology in Germany might deliver a "death blow to global warming hysteria," in the assessment of Patrick J. Michaels and Paul Knappenberger at the Cato Institute.

Muslim Mob Attacks Church Built To Honor Egyptian Christians Beheaded By ISIS

Christians in the Egyptian village of Al Our are looking to build a new church in honor of the Coptic Christians beheaded by ISIS in Libya, a mass-murder outrage captured in a viral video circulated by the Islamic State. 13 of the 21 Christians slaughtered in the video hailed from Al Our; they had gone to Libya in search of employment. A church in their hometown would seem like a fine way to remember them.

Liberty Is On Defense, and Religious Liberty Is In the Red Zone

Faith is officially regarded as trivial now, a hobby to be practiced quietly in whatever private spaces the State chooses to permit. The case against the RFRA boils down to telling religious people they must set aside their faith if they want to do business, because the State has an interest in every transaction, no matter how small, and there are no valid objections to its moral judgment.

The Imperial Bureaucracy Has No Use For Accountability

The really dangerous development of the administrative state is that bureaucrats no longer fear the wrath of our elected representatives, many of whom are so interested in making the State bigger and richer that they'll no longer countenance even token attempts at holding it responsible for its actions, because that would empower the people who want to make it smaller.

ISIS Magazine Explains the Use of Child Executioners

The Islamic State addresses the issue of child executioners—young boys leading hostages to the slaughter, providing knives to the killers, and even portrayed as pulling the trigger in the odd gunshot execution—in the latest issue of its propaganda magazine Dabiq.

Confirmed: Hillary Clinton Lied About Not Wanting To Carry Two Email Devices

All of us, including - no, especially - Democrat voters, need to think long and hard about whether we're ready to wave aside all legal restraints on the aristocracy, in favor of trial by political combat. Making polls the only courtroom aristocrats ever need to face is a dumb idea, but it's especially dumb when their favorite crimes involve concealing their activities and misleading the public.

ISIS Beheads Shiites In Syria; Teenage Boys Lead Prisoners To Slaughter

ISIS released another beheading video through social media on Sunday. The new film is notable in two respects: the victims were captive Shiite Muslims in Syria who were described as "impure infidels" by their captors, and a group of teenage boys were employed as assistant executioners, continuing the Islamic State's trend of working children into their murder videos.

‘Boycott Indiana': The Church Of the State Is the One True Faith

Religious liberty has become something believers have to beg for, on bent knee, hats in hand, while mumbling a stream of apologies about how they're not motivated by personal animosity toward anyone. Their adversaries are free to question their very humanity, dismissing matters of faith and conscience with a sneer.

The picture of Germanwings co-pilot Andreas Lubitz' troubled state of mind grows more complex with the revelation, reported by International Business Times, that investigators have discovered that Lubitz "trawled the dark side of the web visiting, among other things, sites containing gay porn, suicide themes and sexual perversions."

More background information on Andreas Lubitz, the Germanwings co-pilot who crashed his plane into the Alps after locking his captain out of the cockpit and killed 150 people, has trickled out over the weekend. Investigation of his medical history has uncovered vision problems that might have made him anxious about the impending termination of his flight career--an even-more stressful development because he reportedly had a baby on the way.

Syria’s Assad Denies War Crimes, Says He Is Ready for Dialogue with U.S.

According to the Associated Press, Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad is open to discussing cooperating with the United States—years after President Obama's chemical weapons "red line" debacle—but demands respect as a legitimate ruler despite cementing power in an election the State Department openly called a "sham."

Elon Musk: A.I. Advances Are ‘Summoning the Demon’

Humanity handled Y2K. But AI may be something bigger and more difficult. After all, we didn't have to worry about Y2K fighting back. Perhaps it's worth thinking about the safeguards that should be built into contemporary progenitors of the future's incredibly complex expert systems, before they become self-aware and acquire civil rights.
