Professional Journalism

MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell said Tuesday she was concerned the Hillary Clinton campaign would have cut off her interview with the candidate if she asked too many questions about Clinton’s private email server at the State Department.
Well, y'know, if you professional journalists hadn't been kissing her ass and covering for her all this time, you might not have that problem.

Genocide, Islam, and Weaponized Empathy

"For the good of the collective, comrade!"
What bothered this political scientist was a handful of sentences that had been dropped:
“The Association as such is nonpartisan. It will not support political parties or candidates. It will not commit its members on questions of public policy nor take positions not immediately concerned with its direct purpose as stated above.”
As a 501(c)3, the APSA would, in fact, be barred by law from supporting parties and candidates. But, if the changes were to go through, it would not be prohibited from committing “its members on questions of public policy” and from taking “positions not immediately concerned with” the study of political science and research, teaching, and public engagement on the part of individual political scientists.

This may seem insignificant, but it is not.
In short, provision has now been made for a purge; the purge is to be carried out by the clique who now control the Council and who nominate their successors (who are generally elected without a contest); and, in carrying out such a purge, they can act at will. For no grounds for removal or revocation are specified.

So, why don’t our history books teach us much about this aspect of the history of slavery in Africa? Mine certainly didn’t touch on it at all, and in all the years since then, when I’ve about the evils of the institution of slavery I never heard a word about the role of Christian missionaries in ending slavery within Africa itself.
Because it would paint westerners in a good light, why else?

Yeah, about all those 'refugees',
The Arab Gulf States accept very few Syrian refugees out of security concerns which are entirely legitimate. Thousands of Syrian migrants fought either with the Assad regime (allied to Iran, the nemesis of the Sunni Gulf States) or ISIS and al-Qaeda (which want to overthrow the Saudi monarchy).
This is merely the vanguard, the ones who establish a foothold and a foreward line. There’s a reason they are mainly young males: they are most likely to find work and can ‘make do’ with their living accomodations. But back home, there are parents, wives, children, unmarried siblings, and any number of family members waiting for their papers to arrive in the mail.

Steyn is right: the West is commiting suicide.
