War Coverage Shrinks As Success Grows

HERE IS AN AMAZING STAT, a veritable sparkle in the eye of the beholder theory we call media bias. Unfortunately, no data from the right-leaning FOX News was included. From an article by Confederate Yankee: eality, however, does not have a leftward bias (neither does it have a rightward bias). Reality, like nature, seeks equilibrium... balance. The reaction of the newsworks is simple when reality intrudes on the narrative: they dispute it, then they ignore it, and if they can no longer ignore it, they pretend that they never held a contrary position. Presently, the falloff in news coverage in...

Obama's Man In Gitmo

T'S FITTING THAT an ex-Muslim chaplain who once insisted there weren't any terrorists at Gitmo is a delegate for Barack Obama, who's itching to shut down Gitmo. That Obama man is James "Yousef" Yee, a former Army Muslim chaplain charged with espionage while serving at Gitmo, who will represent Washington state for Obama at the Democratic National Convention, where he'll likely have a center-stage speaking role. The two are a perfect match. Obama promises to not only close Gitmo, but "reform" the USA Patriot Act. He apparently plans to take those steps in between tea parties with state sponsors of...


The 3 R's Of Revolutionary Candor (Part 1)

ummarizing history to a few words is not an easy task, but we would like to postulate something called the [Modern] 3 R's of Revolutionary Candor as defined here at the Scenewash Project and The Two-Fisted Quorum are Race, Religion, and Riches. This trinity must be greeted by first understanding the the origins of the first two world wars, and so that we can then recognize the third which is upon us. The tensions that led to World War I were exceedingly secular and nationalistic in nature, and PRIMARILY economic. Below is a critical essay co-authored by three grad students...


Getting To The Gist Of It

he primary audience for Fitna isn't Muslims, so Eteraz' opinion is irrelevant. Let's get to the gist of it. In fact, the more I think about it, the more I like Geert Wilder's shifting of the onus of reform to Muslims. I, for one, am utterly unconvinced that the West is even in the smallest way responsible for the jihad declared against us, although I do admit that we've made the jihad against us stronger by not understanding its origins and methods. I refuse to take even the slightest responsibility for Muslim grievances and refuse to give in one iota...


Destroying The Nation State

By Alan W. Dowd published by FrontPageMagazine.com Buried deep in a recent Washington Post piece deriding former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld’s penchant for firing off memos, we find this morsel: re we in a period of time that is busy destroying the nation state? In one of his longer ruminations, in May 2004, Rumsfeld considered whether to redefine the terrorism fight as a ‘worldwide insurgency.’ The goal of the enemy, he wrote, is to ‘end the state system, using terrorism, to drive the non-radicals from the world.’ Love him or hate him, Rumsfeld was right about this. He was also...
