Chanukah Celebrates Rededication

Chanukah Celebrates Rededication

BY ALAN CARUBA Sometimes I think that Jews are going to have to arm themselves in order to celebrate Chanukah. These days, merely praying in a synagogue, whether it is in Jerusalem or Brooklyn has become hazardous. Of course, those who hate Jews don’t really need an excuse to attack them. In November, Palestinian attackers killed five [...]

The UN, EPA, And The Latest Climate Change Folly

The UN, EPA, And The Latest Climate Change Folly

BY MARK W. HENDRICKSON When writing about the IMF , I mentioned that bureaucracies tend to do everything possible to perpetuate themselves. So it is with the United Nations and the Environmental Protection Agency. The U.N. long ago found common cause with redistributionist national governments on the subject of climate change/global warming, [...]

Chasing Dystopian Rainbows

Chasing Dystopian Rainbows

It seems scientism passes for science these days STEWART DOMPE, ADAM C. SMITH, THE FREEMAN There are rarely any happy prophets. To get headlines you have to claim the world is ending.

The Czar Strikes Back? Russian Armor in Crimea

The Czar Strikes Back? Russian Armor in Crimea

DAVID FRENCH, ACLJ With some parts of the Russian security state moving into Crimea, thoughtful people are saying that Putin is “intent on refighting the Cold War,” but I join others in thinking something much older is in play — the great power politics of the czars, including the balance-of-power jockeying that dominated much of [...]

MIKE HAMMOND, GUN OWNERS OF AMERICA The United Nations Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) was scheduled for approval in the UN last year, in July, but was suddenly pulled off the table because Barack Obama thought (correctly) that it would destroy his reelection prospects.

Russian Government Begins to Shut Down Innocent Websites

Russian Government Begins to Shut Down Innocent Websites

ANNA SEKULOW, ACLJ An aggressive push to gain greater control over the Internet and restrict free speech is underway in Russia. Recently, a Russian-led coalition introduced a plan that would give the United Nations (U.N.) vast power to censor, regulate and essentially control the Internet.
