*March 27, 2017* (Joseph Thomas - NEO) - Singaporean Amos Yee fits the description of virtually every foreign-backed agitator used to target and undermine political orders worldwide as part of Washington's "soft power" toolkit. He is a young individual who, at 18 years old, was not particularly bright in school and possesses no practical talent or skill with which to contribute to society. Incapable of achieving positive attention based on his merit, he has embarked on a life of seeking negative attention based on his ability to agitate, insult and defame. Much of his behaviour be...more »
When a player's on fire, is it hot hands? Basketball image via www.shutterstock.com. It’s NCAA basketball tournament season, known for its magical moments and the “March Madness” it can produce. Many fans remember Stephen Curry’s superhuman 2008 performance where he led underdog Davidson College to victory while nearly outscoring the entire determined Gonzaga team by himself in the second half. Was Curry’s magic merely a product of his skill, the match-ups and random luck, or was there something special within him that day? Nearly every basketball player, coach or fan believes that...more »

If you read the claims of environmental groups, trace levels of chemicals are the source of most cancers, even if they are well below harmful levels, due to vague claims of "bioaccumulation." If you read the recent claims of the EPA, air pollution is causing acute deaths, even though the United States has some of the cleanest air in the world and no one can find any deaths it has caused during the entire existence of the EPA. read more
*Damned, Horrible Lies* *The mirror lies.* When I get up in the morning and look into it, I instinctively ask the question, asked by men since mirrors came into use, "who is that old b@stard?" I was recently invited to Credenhill, England this coming summer to spend some time with old friends, many of whom I haven't seen in forty years since a secondment to the Brits when I was in the US Navy. My response was, "*That's a filthy lie*, it can't have been forty years." Friends, *the clock is a remorseless foe* and in the end it will kill us all. *The moral to this story is*, "fight l...more »

*Jerusalem Post:* *Report: US, Russia agree to help Israel 'expel' Iran from Syria* Israel hopes, with the help of Russia and the United States, that enough pressure can be placed on Iranian-backed militias to the point where they can be removed. The United States, Russia and Israel have reportedly reached a consensus on the need to restrict and eventually expel pro-Iranian forces from gaining influence in Syria, the Kuwati daily newspaper Al-Rai reported Saturday. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, according to the Arab outlet, has reached an understanding with Washington and Mos...more »
Let's go beyond the orgy of recriminations and finger-pointing over the massive and devastating Ryan-Trump-Pence-Price health care loss. This weekend, *Wall Street Journal* readers are being told to see it as "a major blow to the Trump Presidency, the GOP majority in Congress, and especially to the cause of reforming and limiting government." The damage is all the more acute because it was self-inflicted. President Trump was right to say on Friday that Democrats provided no help, but Democrats were never going to vote to repeal President Obama ’s most important legislation. And t...more »

*Trump’s Responsible Decision to End an After-School Program That Harms Children* President Donald Trump has clear justification for his recommendation to eliminate a $1.2 billion after-school program administered by the Department of Education. Rigorous scientific evidence shows that the program, called 21st Century Community Learning Centers, harms children. Advocates of evidence-based policy should applaud the president’s fiscally responsible decision, part of his fiscal year 2018 budget request. The role of the federal government in funding after-school programs increased su...more »

The first U.S. Navy destroyer makes port call at Gangjeong village on Jeju Island, South Korea. The Obama-Clinton (and now Trump) 'pivot' of 60% of U.S. forces into the Asia-Pacific requires more barracks for American troops, more ports-of-call for American warships and more airfields for Washington's warplanes. The Pentagon does not care about the impact this 'pivot' has on the lives of people in the region. Villagers and supporters in Gangjeong met the Navy destroyer with a protest and denounced its arrival. We'll be talking about all of this on April 1 in Bath, Maine at the n...more »
Post the latest Islamist terrorist attack on London the usual idiots and liars are telling the British public that there are only a tiny minority of Muslims who support terrorism and that the Islamists ideology is a perversion of a great religion of peace.

Americans were in danger of losing their health care last week. They dodged a bullet. But there is a bigger danger looming. Tony Burman writes: During a visit to South Korea earlier this month, Rex Tillerson, [Donald] Trump’s secretary of state, announced what appeared to be a dramatic change in American policy toward the nuclear threat of North Korea. Since the diplomacy of the past 20 years has “failed,” he warned, pre-emptive military action against North Korea is now “on the table.” Tillerson’s warning reflected the U.S. government’s worry that Kim’s renegade regime is accele...more »

Sayeeda Warsi was on *The Andrew Marr Show *this morning arguing that the Westminster attack had nothing to do with Islam. People from all religions can carry out violent acts, she said, and Masood "was a violent Christian long before he was a violent Muslim". She also condemned the government's "obsessive focus" on "Islamic ideology" - a term she regards as "not factually correct" - and wants to see the present Prevent strategy replaced by a new strategy which will better engage with Muslims. Now, *you* may have thought that her contribution was the usual, predictable guff from t...more »

Here's an opinion poll finding from YouGov: Besides the bizarre (but probably inevitable) 9% who think the BBC was biased in favour of Brexit, the interesting statistic here is that only 30% of voters think the BBC behaved impartially over Brexit.

Isn't the truth that sometimes it is completely impossible to stop acts of terrorism, and we need to learn to live with that unhappy fact? Do we know he was "a deranged man"?

*Washington Post:* *U.S. airstrike kills al-Qaeda leader responsible for deaths of two Americans, Pentagon says* A U.S. airstrike this week in southeastern Afghanistan targeted an al-Qaeda leader connected to multiple terrorist attacks, including a hotel bombing in 2008 that killed two U.S. service members, the Pentagon said Saturday. The March 19 strike, probably carried out by a drone, killed Qari Yasin in Afghanistan’s Paktika province. “The death of Qari Yasin is evidence that terrorists who defame Islam and deliberately target innocent people will not escape justice,” said Def...more »

“To me, there are three things we all should do every day. We should do this every day of our lives. Number one is laugh. You should laugh every day. Number two is think. You should spend some time in thought. And number three is, you should have your emotions moved to tears, could be happiness or joy. But think about it. If you laugh, you think, and you cry, that's a full day. That's a heck of a day. You do that seven days a week, you're going to have something special.” - Jim Valvano

Is my eyesight fading or am I just imagining it, am I going to get rheumatism, lockjaw, dementia? Finally I saw that worrying had come to nothing. And gave it up. And took my old body and went out into the morning, and sang.” - Mary Oliver

Widening inequality caused Brexit. Who seriously thinks we’d have voted Brexit if low-end wages had risen in line with growing national wealth? If low income workers had been saving, rather than borrowing or going without? Instead, since 1979, the Tories increased inequality. Worse, Labour failed to reverse it. In fact, it crept up further. Immigration and the EU is getting the blame for that
