Adherents to islam are killing people at an increasing rate across a constantly-increasing geography. The great thinkers of the West have no Plan B other than to accept this killing as the “new normal.”
Sending men with guns and jets with bombs isn’t working to stop it – and is costing the civilized world thousands of educated men and women in ground combat and in terrorist strikes across the West.
This ideology, the practitioners of which are taught by their holy book to kill all non-members, is costing the entire planet trillions of dollars that could – and should – […]
A true statesman right about now would get the leaders of European countries, Russia, China, Australia, Canada, Japan together right now and create an alliance to destroy Islam.
It’s time for a serious intellectual discussion on the cost/benefit to the entire world, modernity, the costs ($ and lives) of keeping it contained, and humanity’s future… vs destroying it.
As long as the bastard in the White House remains there, civilized people must grasp that America is on the side of terror, and that our military and Congress have gone over to the other side.
Muslims kill everyone that holds still […]
In an important and fascinating column, “Are We Becoming Morally Smarter? The connection between increasing IQs, decreasing violence and economic liberalism,” the writer pulls from several longitudinal studies of brain development to make an interesting point.

How’d we find bin ladin?), saying that I would do just about anything were the lives of my family – or the life of my country – in danger made imminent by a person shackled in front of me, and that waterboarding isn’t “torture” (if it isn’t enormous pain or disfigurement, it isn’t ‘torture,’ and getting wet isn’t torture).
I have supported EIT as I have understood it.
I also have supported the release of the Feinstein report. Why? Because I believe in the […]
Assad may again be gassing the locals. What to do about it?
The US overthrowing local strongmen (a bipartisan effort that made everything worse: Saddam, Ghaddafi, Mubarak, and one more) in the naïve Western belief / projection that these autocracies would become liberal democracies is the root of nearly all global fighting. The tap root of global islamist terror comes from the same seed: Carter (D) enabling the overthrow of the Shah – and the return of Khomeini and sharia to the world. Why? Carter looked into his eyes and saw a “Man of God.” Carter just failed to ask, […]
