After President Trump doubled down on calling himself a “nationalist” Tuesday, CNN went into full attack mode, with cringe-worthy George Orwell quotes read on air, bad history lessons, and comparisons to Hitler. CNN White House reporter Jim Acosta kicked off the
Twitter ‘historian’ Mike Stuchbery, a minor e-celebrity in the small world of online social justice warriors, is celebrating Breitbart London editor-in-chief Raheem Kassam’s suspension from the microblogging site.
Over the last century or two, plenty of seers and scribblers told us that technological advances were a two-edged sword. For all the gains in our standard of living that inventions would bring, so, too, would come dangers—and maybe even more downsides than upsides.
The New York Times published an editorial Wednesday evening about the attack on Republicans earlier that day in which it claimed falsely that Sarah Palin incited the 2011 Tucson shooting, and that the killer had political motives.
Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA) spoke with Breitbart News Daily SiriusXM host Raheem Kassam regarding the CIA and recent Wikileaks revelations and the current state of America’s spy state combined with a growing government bureaucracy.
Donning dirty T-shirts that say things like “nasty woman” and “resist,” the melting snowflakes are fleeing this Orange Revolution for their latest safe space. But it is probably one that should come with a trigger warning for these tender little kiddies.
The media, and the broader left, are taking pride in sales of Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four, as if these confirm their fantasies about Donald Trump as a totalitarian leader. One wonders if they have read the book.
President Barack Obama refused, once again, to describe the terror attack in Nice, France as the result of “radical Islam.” But he did offer an alternative ideology: “development and economic progress.”
A senior National Union of Students official has defended the organisation’s Safe Space policy by insisting that “some people have more equal rights than others.” He has denied the Orwellian nature of the phrase claiming he meant only that some had
A headteacher at an academy school has labelled members of his staff “racist Islamophobes” for not supporting an open doors policy on migration in the wake of the Paris terrorist attacks. Writing anonymously, she details how junior staff reported senior
It is not too many centurions, particularly 100-year-old-plus writers, whose vision of the world is as relevant today as it was when first shared with the public over half a century ago. It is this vision of Orwell, the X-ray view through the cant, platitudes and lies to that ugliest of human drives, the lust for powers absolute, that still distinguishes the British writer, born 112 years ago this week on June 25, 1903. He was only 46 when he died on January 21, 1950. It is his frightening acuity that keeps him not only in the pantheon but even within the orbit of contemporary consciousness.
In George Orwell’s masterpiece, “Nineteen Eighty-Four,” he writes: In the end the Party would announce that two and two made five, and you would have to believe it. It was inevitable that they should make that claim sooner or later:
TEL AVIV — May 1 is still a significant day in Israel. There are marches through the center of Tel Aviv celebrating May Day and the solidarity of the international working class. (The international working class has shown considerably less interest in solidarity with Israel, but never mind.) Today, Israel is more “start-up nation” than workers’ paradise, known more for the entrepreneurship of its Internet millionaires than for the power of its labor unions or the collectivism of the kibbutz.
On Sunday, President Barack Obama explained his stance on radical Islam to CNN’s Fareed Zakaria–and in the process, showed exactly why it is that the U.S. is losing to Al Qaeda, ISIS, and Iran. Obama believes, against all available evidence, that only a small minority of Muslims share the political beliefs of Islamist terror groups. And he is wedded to a particular tactic–the so-called “surgical” strike–that precludes any commitment of troops, giving the enemy wide freedom of action.
