How far will this escalate? Watch today's Liberty Report:

Psychological Impact Of Genetic Testing - Like All Psychology, It Depends

Hank Campbell at Science 2.0 blogs - 7 hours ago
Population level metrics such as Body Mass Index (BMI) or statistical correlation using epidemiology don't do much to inform individual experience, and psychology faces the same issue. Surveys can tell us whatever surveys can tell us about what a particular group of people taking surveys think, but there is a reason that no polling group does well with Congressional districts that are contentious. It simply doesn't work. As we learned when we first believed the anti-vaccine problem was a fringe religious issue, what people claim on surveys is not their behavior.(1) read more

Tommy Robinson deserves the U.S., Czech asylum

Luboš Motl at The Reference Frame - 11 hours ago
Tommy Robinson, born as Stephen Yaxley-Lennon in 1982, has spent some time in the prison. So far, he's been arrested thrice. While it's plausible that some of the earlier prison terms were justified, it seems absolutely obvious to every sane person that the legal harassment of Tommy Robinson in recent years is politically driven. Korn: Last evening, I had a beautiful dream that I was Robinson. The trials against Tommy Robinson are Stalinist-style monster trials and the far left that is de facto in charge of the U.K. wants to turn Tommy Robinson to a political prisoner.

Trump Reminds Us That America is a Military Nation

Jacob G. Hornberger at 11 hours ago
[image: undefined] President Trump is being criticized for surrounding himself with tanks, armored vehicles, flyovers, and generals and admirals during his Fourth of July celebration at the Lincoln Memorial. Critics say that it was unseemly for the president to be showing off the federal government’s military process on Independence Day. Some said it conjured up images of the Soviet Union, when that communist regime would showcase its tanks and military hardware in parades in Moscow’s Red Square. But the fact is that America is a military nation. As Trump pointed out in his Indepen... more »

Frog-Marching Trump Toward War on Iran

It’s remarkable to see Secretary of State Mike Pompeo take to Twitter to complain of Iran enriching uranium to pre-deal levels, as if somehow the US believes it can still dictate the terms of a deal to which it is no longer a party.
