The E.U. Experiment Has Failed

The E.U. Experiment Has Failed | Hoover Institution: "National pride and amour propre were not eliminated by the E.U. and the ideology of its bureaucratic elites, only driven underground for a while. With Christianity moribund, and patriotism stigmatized as neo-fascist, it is unsurprising that Europe has failed to find a unifying principle beyond mere material comfort, resulting in the continent-wide malaise that manifests itself in the various failed policies threatening the E.U. project today, what Pope Francis last November called “a general impression of weariness and aging, of a Europe which is now a ‘grandmother,’ no longer fertile and vibrant”—a culture “weary with disorientation.”

We American should not indulge the schadenfreude aroused by watching our sometimes-condescending older cousins slip farther and farther behind us in global importance and power. Europe is still collectively the world’s largest economy, and its travails will impact the whole globe. More importantly, many of the trends weakening Europe today are active in our own country. The scorning of national pride and American exceptionalism, the decline of Christianity in the public square, multiculturalism and its ethnic separatism and divisive identity politics, and the preference of many Americans for greater social welfare spending, redistribution of wealth, and dirigiste economic policies all point us to a fate like Europe’s. 

Self-doubt about the goodness of one’s way of life and living just for today’s pleasures are luxuries a great power cannot afford. In a world of violent ideologies and aggressive autocrats, a free people must have something beyond this world that they believe is worth killing and dying for. Europe seemingly has lost those ideals and beliefs that made it the nurse of freedom, democracy, and human rights. America has taken on that global role, but if we go the way of Europe, if we too no longer know what we believe, who will take our place?

Immigration Is Now on the Verge of Destroying UK

Immigration Is Now on the Verge of Destroying UK | American Renaissance: "Until recently, Britain was one of the most homogenous nations in the world.

In 1940 there were just 238,000 foreign nationals in Britains, little more than a third of the current annual influx.

How we have changed.

Cultural diversity is code for national suicide.

Tragically, as last week’s figures show, that process of disintegration can only accelerate under our current supine, dishonest rulers.

How Netanyahu's Iran speech undermines Obama's deceitful deal by Andrew Malcolm

How Netanyahu's Iran speech undermines Obama's deceitful deal by Andrew Malcolm - Investors.com: "In his idiomatic English and speaking as a friend, Israel's superior spokesman firmly delivered an eloquent, detailed and damning 3,900-word indictment of both Iran and the sell-out nuclear deal that the Obama administration is in the closing stages of drafting in Geneva. Netanyahu's delivery was Churchillian. Indeed, the 65-year-old former special forces captain just became only the second foreign leader after Sir Winston to address Congress three times.

Norway Deports Radical Muslims… What Happened Next is a Lesson for Us All

Norway Deports Radical Muslims… What Happened Next is a Lesson for Us All | John Hawkins' Right Wing News: "The Muslim population of Europe is growing at a rapid clip, and the criminal and radical elements within that population are stealthily “conquering” land, one neighborhood, town, and city at a time.

But the people of Europe have begun to push back against this cultural encroachment, with some countries taking steps to control and downsize their Muslim populations.

Norway is one of those countries, and they began deporting radical and criminal Muslims back from whence they came last year.

Amazingly, they have seen their violent crime rate drop by nearly 1/3rd since they began deportations in earnest last fall.

Why Our Children Don't Think There Are Moral Facts

Sense of Events: Why Our Children Don't Think There Are Moral Facts: "The most important training we can give our children is moral training. And school curricula deliberately teach them instead that there is no morality, there is only opinion.

The curricula teach that only that which can be proven is true. But truth is not at all wholly dependent on proof.

The biggest obstacles to new jobs are taxes and regulations

The biggest obstacles to new jobs are taxes and regulations: "Many states defend their strict tax-and-regulatory policies as being in workers’ best interests, but when all of the red tape and expenses mean fewer workers in these states, it becomes necessary to rethink just how much “protection” is too much.
Nobody wants workers unnecessarily subjected to harsh and dangerous conditions, but make no mistake the states that are most creative in finding ways to both protect workers and lower the costs of doing business will attract the most reshoring jobs – and the revenues associated with greater economic activity.
