On February 10th, three people were shot to death in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. Immediately afterwards, the media starting proclaiming that this was a hate crime, despite the only “evidence” of that being that the victims were Muslims, and the shooter was a Southern white male. Harvard […]
With the coldest winter since the 1880’s what will the global alarmists think of next. Let’s start with the premise: What is the purpose of the propaganda behind GW&CC (global warming and climate change. The propaganda and almost all propaganda causes a flow of money of sorts […]
The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition (DSM-5) describes Factitious Disorder Imposed on Another (FDIA) as a psychiatric disorder most common among mothers who intentionally harm or describe non-existent symptoms in their children to get the attention given to the family of someone who is […]
It was supposed to be a phone call for Obama administration ears only. But hear it the radio host did, she says. And what she heard should make your blood run cold — and perhaps your rage hot. Obama’s amnesty plan is to use illegal aliens as “seedlings,” […]
I had the opportunity recently to watch again the magnificent documentary on the Civil War produced by Ken Burns (hard to believe) more than a generation ago.
The series captures with power and clarity the contradictions of a war that was utterly brutal, and yet somehow civil; fought […]
It was a solution right up there with “Let them eat cake.” Addressing the issue of Jews fleeing Europe due to increasing Islamic terrorism and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s call for them to seek safety in Israel, Bill Nye “the Science Guy” had an interesting solution: “Get to […]
The ancient Greeks were faced with terrorism and slavery from the Persian king Xerxes. Edith Hamilton in her book, The Greek Way (W.W.Norton, N.Y. 1930) explains what they did, how they did it and why it was successful. Revisiting what the ancient Greeks did should renew […]
Taxation brought to you by ObamaCare. Capitalism or Socialism?
It has been a while since we devoted a full page to ObamaCare. I do love the fact that it is called ObamaCare. Some would call it a legacy for the communist, but it feels more […]
For long, a plea for the recognition of a Kurdish entity has been in “Duly Noted’s” pipeline. The Kurd’s impressive valor and the injustices meted out to them to create “stable conditions” constitute a moral imperative to present this piece.
It is tempting to plead […]
Remember “Cap and Trade?” The anti-market allegedly “market-based” “solution” to man-faked global warming climate change?
A central authority (usually a governmental body) sets a limit or cap on the amount of a pollutant that may be emitted.
The limit or cap is allocated and/or sold […]
During the recent Summit on Violent Extremism held in Washington, D.C., President Barack Obama said that the U.S. battle against “violent extremism” doesn’t mean it’s a war on the Islamic world and using the words Muslim or Islamic offer the very terrorist group we are […]
Now there are those who will scoff at the very mention of the word sin. But scoffing at sin is the same thing as scoffing at crime.
That is because crime is simply a human interpretation of sin. Crime has its origin in sin.
Judicial systems are an expression of our subconscious knowledge of right […]
For the last several weeks the American and the Israeli national press, as well as the American Jewish press have debated the wisdom of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s decision to accept House Speaker John Boehner’s invitation to address a joint session of Congress concerning the Iranian nuclear program. President Obama has indicated […]
I tried to watch the Academy Awards with my wife on Sunday night, February 22nd,but I could not get through the entire event. It has been several years since I watched an entire Academy Awards presentation and I now know why.
The organization behind this self-congratulatory left wing […]
Washington, DC, is the capital of the United States. Yet Silicon Valley is the true capital of the America of the present and the future. Silicon Valley and its satellites gave us personal computers, web browsing, email, Amazon, eBay, PayPal, Facebook, Uber, Airbnb, iPhones, iPads, and other […]
The Barack Obama Administration’s Thursday Internet uber-power grab is awful for just about every American. It will lead to dramatically more expensive Web access – because of both raised service costs and huge new taxes.
And we will see a spiraling, regressive devolution of speed. It […]
Nigel Farage, leader of the UKIP
I attended the annual Conservative Political Action Conference this past weekend, and as usual, it ended with a much hyped but slanted presidential straw poll. Alternative conservative Rand Paul came in first place, followed by Scott Walker, then […]
It is a historical reality that successful societies, nations and the like eventually reach a point of maturity, and then proceed to transition into something else, burn out, or become the victims of conquest. It is this premise that lies behind Richard Engle’s new book, The Last […]
I made plenty of my male friends jealous meeting pundit Michelle Fields. My cousin thinks we’re related. Not sure how I feel about that, since she’s rather good looking!
I had barely submitted this article for publication when I was made aware of an article that claims researchers at MIT had proved that atoms naturally produce life.
The article claims that the “new theory … proposes that when a group of atoms is exposed for a long time to a source of energy, it […]
This past Monday marked the 70th anniversary of Raising the Flag on Iwo Jima, the most famous photograph in U.S. military history and one of the greatest photographs of all time. As is generally known, it was taken by Joseph Rosenthal, an Associated Press photographer, on February […]
By the end of Day Two, the material in the universe had not changed from the beginning of Day Two. The universe was still composed of hydrogen, helium and traces of beryllium and lithium. And there were photons of light.
The only thing that had changed was the concentration of the material in certain places […]
Interest in the 2016 presidential election contest is heating up. It is an arguably unfortunate aspect of the US national political scene that no more than midway through a presidential term, the nation might be paying as much attention to whom the next occupant of the […]
Students at Benchmark Preschool and Elementary School in Phoenix
If you haven’t paid close attention to the school choice movement over the past 10 years, you might not realize how much it has changed. Due to lawsuits and other limitations, innovators have figured out that tuition […]
