Sri Lanka Bombings: A Story of ISIS and Wealthy Terrorists

KemeKiss Women Lace Up Heels Pumps Mandaartins Flat shoes Women Loafers Soft Leather Moccasins Women shoes Flats Slip On Spring Autumn shoes In the U.S., coverage of the Islamic terrorist bombings of churches and hotels in Sri Lanka on Easter Sunday has been sparse and generally uninformative. It tells you something when Britain’s Sun, which has mostly abandoned the news in favor of soccer and celebrities in bikinis, is a better source than the New York Times or the Washington Post. That is certainly the case with regard to the Sri Lanka WodCht Women Winter Flats Warm shoes with Feather Down Antiskid shoes for Women Bow shoes Rubber
Featured imageBack when I was writing a book with Joel Schwartz on conventional air pollution around 2005, we were struck how the media everywhere covered the issue with a reverse Lake Woebegone effect: our local area has “some of the worst” air pollution in the whole country! Of course, even without looking at the actual data, this is obviously nonsense—if everywhere has “some of the worst” air pollution, then nowhere is Ladies Cork Leather Slipper Women Home shoes Office Slippers Beach Summer Flip Flops Sandalias c60

Working on behalf of the Clinton campaign, ex-British spy Christopher Steele purported to draw on his relationships with the friends of Vladimir Putin to Pink Label Women's Strappy Gladiator Flat Sandal with gold

Joe Biden: woke, joke, or both?

Featured imageWhen I was a young baseball fan, I thought that pitchers who relied on a great fastball would lose their effectiveness more quickly than pitchers with a mediocre fastball who relied on “junk” and guile. After all, speed declines with age while guile, if anything, increases. Eventually, after observing the late career success of Robin Roberts, I realized that pitchers with a great fastball can reinvent themselves as pitchers with SODA Women's Relax Faux Leather Military Combat Lace Up Boots, Black, 6 M US

An Antidote to Leftist History Textbooks

Featured imagePaul wrote earlier this week here and here about the case of an AP history textbook, By the People: A History of the United States, whose leftist bias is so egregious that you’d be better off having your kid not take AP history at all.  That textbook is not, sadly, a rare example of leftist bias in primary school textbooks. Is there any remedy available? We’re very happy to report »

Women's Leather Loafers Casual Flats Driving Moccasins Indoor shoes Slip-On SlippersA Gallup poll from earlier this month found that Americans consider the government and immigration to be the most important problems facing the U.S. 23 percent of respondents named the government/poor leadership, while 21 percent named immigration.

The ideologue who wrote the textbook calling Trump and his supporters “racists”

Featured imageYesterday, I wrote about the AP U.S. History textbook By the People that calls President Trump and his core supporters “racists” and suggests that the president is “mentally unstable.” Today, I want to write about James W. Fraser, the author of this egregiously biased left-wing book. Stanley Kurtz blew the whistle on Fraser a year ago. Rereading Stanley’s piece made my blood boil, just as it was simmering down.

BalaMasa Womens Travel Solid Buckle Urethane Pumps shoes APL10460Since Justine Ruszczyk (Damond) was killed by Mohamed Noor on July 15, 2017, the Minneapolis mayor and chief of police have been sacked, the chief by the mayor and the mayor by the voters. Justine’s killing opened a window onto Minneapolis’s kakistocracy. The case hasn’t drawn much national attention, apparently because the victim was a white woman and the shooter is a black Somali immigrant.

It is a commonplace of Illinois politics that each new governor has a prison cell fitted out for him along with his election certification.
