Two Great Horrors of Terrorism
Jeffrey TuckerNov 19
"We cry, but we never fear."

These were the words written on a sign, held up by a citizen in a mass rally in Paris, the day following the ghastly slaughter of innocents. The rally itself took place in defiance of the nighttime curfew that had been instituted by the French government (the first since 1944). This curfew came with other methods of control such as a border closure (again, first time since WWII), tanks on the streets, and a de facto end to free movement and assembly. <

Do Men Need to Check Their Privilege?
AEINov 19

Do men need to check their privilege? Gender activists tell us that men carry around with them an invisible knapsack of advantage. Well, is this true and is it the whole story? AEI Scholar Christina Hoff Sommers checks the facts.


The Surveillance State Couldn't Prevent The Paris Attacks -- So Why Expand It?
Police State DailyNov 18
In the wake of the unfortunate and diabolical terrorist attacks perpetrated in Paris, the international surveillance and intelligence communities have responded with a predictable refrain: give us more power and give us more money.

Never mind that it has been reported that French and German intelligence agencies knew about the attacks on

Who's Making A Killing From the Paris Terror Attacks?
Daniel McAdamsNov 18
Terrorism is great for business if you’re in the business of growing the government leviathan. The bodies in Paris are not yet buried, while the vultures with dollar signs (and pounds and Euros, etc) in their eyes have already swooped down for a feast.

Terrorism, what is it good for?

1) The military-industrial-Congressional complex: Thanks to Glenn Greenwald for bringing to light the enormous profits that are already rolling in for the merchants

West Leverages Paris Attacks For Syria Endgame
New Eastern OutlookNov 18
The terrorist attacks carried out in the heart of the French capital, either coincidentally or intentionally, have served as the perfect point of leverage for the West on the very eve of the so-called "Vienna talks" regarding Syria.

With its serendipitously strengthened hand and with France taking a more prominent role, the West is attempting to reassert not only its narrative, but its agenda regarding the ongoing conflict in Syria, an agenda that has – as of late – been derailed

ISIS May Be Our Ally Some Day
Mises InstituteNov 18
“ISIS is certainly not a state” said Obama in a recent statement. This is the official line Western governments use to describe ISIS. The label terrorist is often used to describe dangerous and aggressive organizations. However, these characteristics are not used to describe organizations that don’t threaten the strategic interests of states that dominate the international community.

By the Numbers: France's Military Spending In Global Context
Mises InstituteNov 18
When French President Francois Hollande declared this week that France is "at war," this could only possibly have been news to people who weren't paying attention. Of course, France is at war. France has been bombing foreign targets for years, and making war in numerous locales across the globe.

One of the purposes of last week's terrorist attacks was to inflict casualties on the Fren

To France from a Post-9/11 America: Lessons We Learned Too Late
The Rutheford InstituteNov 17
"They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety." - Benjamin Franklin

"Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country." - Hermann Goering, German military commander and Hitler's designated successor

1,000's More Could've Died in Paris If Not For This Private Security Guard - Who Is Muslim
William Norman GriggNov 17
The horrific November 13 terrorist onslaught that left 129 Parisians dead could have been even worse were it not for the intervention of a Muslim private security officer at the Stade de France who detected something suspicious during a pat-down search. Shortly after being turned away from the entrance, the man detonated an explosive vest.

In an interview with the Wall St

UPDATE: The BBC is reporting the Wall Street Journal misreported the story of Zouheir, he did not turn a bomber away himself but instead relayed the story of another stadium guard turning a bomber away.

White "Privilege" Has Nothing On State Privilege
Mises InstituteNov 17
Cultural Marxism enjoyed a victory last week when University of Missouri President Tim Wolfe resigned after members of the Missouri Tigers football team joined a student movement calling for his resignation. While I fully support the rights of these players to leverage their athletic ability to advocate a cause — as I would support their university if it decided to pull their scholarship — what is concerning is the actual list of demands shared by the cause they joined.

The top p

Conservatism Laid Bare
Laurence M. VanceNov 17
"Conservatism is the antidote to tyranny. It's the only one. It's based on thousands of years of human experience. There is nothing narrow about the conservative philosophy. It's a liberating philosophy. It is a magnificent philosophy. It is a philosophy for the ages, for all times." ~ Mark Levin

"I realized that conservatism was the philosophy that best suited me, with its emphasis on individual liberty, personal responsibility, and merit." ~ Mark Levin

Paris and What Should Be Done
Ron Paul InstituteNov 17
The horrific attacks in Paris on Friday have, predictably, led to much over-reaction and demands that we do more of the exact things that radicalize people and make them want to attack us. The French military wasted no time bombing Syria in retaliation for the attacks, though it is not known where exactly the attackers were from. Thousands of ISIS fighters in Syria are not Syrian, but came to Syria to overthrow the Assad government from a number of foreign countries — including from France and t... (more)

"There Is No Such Thing As 'White Privilege'": Walter Block on the Fracas at Mizzou
Walter BlockNov 16
I had a dream the other night, that I was president of Loyola University, and faced with the challenges that confronted Tim Wolfe, the now ex-president of the University of Missouri. But don’t get worried: I have no intention of taking up any such office; it would interfere with my research, writing and publication. In any case, I am not sure Loyola is quite ready for a Jewish atheist as its leader.

In any case, what would I do if I were in Mr. Wolfe’s shoes? Here are the demands

Westminster Abbey, nearly a thousand years old, is my favorite stop in London, which I've visited so many times now that I've lost count. Each time I walk through the main entrance, my eyes are drawn immediately to the left because of the imposing statue of a man I deeply admire: William Ewart Gladstone, a devoted friend of both British and American liberty and the greatest of all British prime ministers.

Today, the name Gladstone adorns towns, parks, schools, and many buildings a

'Faced With Terror, This is a Nation That Knows How to Defend Itself,' Says Hollande As Mass Slaughter Takes Place

French people are being methodically executed in droves, helpless to defend themselves due to civilian disarmament and forced to wait for militarized SWAT teams to protect them, but the nation "knows how to defend itself," says president François Hollande.

Libertarian Lives Matter
Mises CanadaNov 13
There is little question that individual liberty and economic stability have taken a beating during the past fifteen years.  Most state institutions, from the Supreme Court to local governments, have been active in diminishing our traditional freedoms.  CSIS and other alphabet soup spy agencies now intrude into our personal lives in order to categorize our threat levels.  We are given no choice but to fund the murder of foreign citizens through endless, unjust wars.  We can only watch while the ...

Who Are The Supporters of International Terrorism?

The highly effective Russian operation in Syria has clearly exposed the real position of the West, along with the ties it has with international terrorist groups.

As is already known, the so-called Western coalition, created by Washington more than a year ago has been "effectively fighting" terrorism in Syria and Iraq. What are the results? Desert areas with no terrorists to be found anywhere have been heavily bombed, at the same time, terrorists are regularly acquiring weapon due

The United States and the Republic of Korea have drastically altered their military plans towards North Korea by shifting their central focus from preparation of a large-scale direct confrontation to swift localised subversive actions, reported the Japanese newspaper Asahi Shimbun on October 5, 2015. According to the newspaper, while previously the United States and the Republic of Korea (RK) were considering a full-scale ground war, the "sudden provocations from the North, which have been takin...
