Kremlin Cams Off During Boris Nemtsov Murder

Many are wondering which ideology Russia is following: ethnic Nationalism or an Eurasian cult of personality? It doesn't really matter. This much is sure: it will be pre-modern in mentality, collectivist in nature and the people will be subordinated to the state. Some think that's hot!

(Video) Bibi Netanyahu Speech at AIPAC

Congress has extended an invitation to Bibi Netanyahu to speak before an upcoming joint session. Obama took it as an affront to the dignity of his administration. Obama has sent a campaign team to Israel to ensure Netanyahu isn't re-elected. The latter reciprocated. Tuesday March 3 at 11:00 AM the speech to Congress is going ahead.

UPDATE: True to the nature of the conflict, a mix of information, misinformation and disinformation. Can you tell the difference!

Aussie Volunteer Fighter Against IS Dies In Battle

There is a growing number of Western fighters joining the Kurdish defense against the ISIS onslaught. These men and women are the stuff of true heroes. They voluntarily join battle against the evil of our time. Some are wounded, some pay the ultimate price for freedom. 

Feb 28, 2015 Ashley Johnston, the YPG fighter from Australia, has become the first Western martyr in Rojava. Johnston lost his live during a battle in the surroundings of Til Hemis.

The Syrian 'Revolution' Was An Islamist Hoax

Nothing official,  but Obama and Assad have teamed up against IS. The actions in the air and on the ground speak for themselves. Speculation is rife Obama is now secretly aligned with Iran against the Sunni allies. Egypt and Saudi are furious! And look at the geopolitics! 

Assad and Obama have a temporary understanding to combat IS, but a long term alignment goes against Obama's commitment to the Muslim Brotherhood. 

UPDATE: A Syrian tweep from Australia describes in a few words what was so fake in the 'Syrian Revolution', the alleged 'spontaneous' revolt in the disastrous hoax called the Arab Spring.

Egypt Calls For Arab Coalition Against ISIS

Egypt is struggling to restore the country after narrowly having escaped rule by the Muslim Brotherhood. The former military leader Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, currently the country's President, is showing true leadership in uniting the country and spearheading efforts to reform Islam.


US Rethinking Planned Offensive on Mosul

Sunni and Shia forces are pitted against each other for hegemony of the region. ISIS has been carving out its Sunni Caliphate in Syria and Iraq (maps). The Shia led Government of Iraq is aligned with Iran. The West has no stake in the proxy war, but no one is immune to a toxic concentration of this kind. The coalition has started to support Iraq even if Obama is unwilling.

UPDATE: IS attacked the Iraqi Shia stronghold of Samarra early this morning. The army has set in a defense overseen by the PM himself. In the meantime the US is re-thinking the wisdom of the spring offensive against IS in Mosul.

ISIS Message To Obama

The pen is mightier than the sword. Ridicule is mightier than the pen. Humor is a caricature of reality: an exaggeration of some characteristics and oversimplification of others. (Wiki) But that theory of humor presupposes that the observer is in touch with reality. This explains why many won't accept present schtick. LOL

(Video) Religion Versus Freedom

In today’s culture there is a tendency to associate capitalism with religion. That association stems from generations of conservatives suggesting that what makes America free, great, and exceptional is faith. So it’s hardly a surprise that many Americans who revere science oppose capitalism.

Onkar Ghate challenges the view that we face a choice between science and capitalism. 

In this talk, delivered as part of ARI’s Road to a Free Society tour, ARI senior fellow Onkar Ghate challenges the view that we face a choice between science and capitalism. Instead, he argues that capitalism is the system of reason and science — and that statism is the system of faith and obedience to authority. 

Recorded on December 3, at ARI’s headquarters in Irvine, California.

Net Neutrality: Where's Your Internet License?

Net neutrality is a Government solution for a problem that does not even exist. But just in case Internet providers one day might start hating their customers, Government regulation would turn the free information highway into a regulated utility, like the ehm you know, the Ministry of Information?

Proponents of Government intervention say that 'net neutrality' will "save the Internet." But does the Internet need saving?

UPDATE: Government regulation (whatever the consequences) is antithetical to freedom. As such, net neutrality is the political exploitation of a free medium that is not publicly owned. In other words, it's a power grab, nationalization in our time. But to some people everything is political and they would gladly turn the free information highway into a public utility. The proponents can't even be honest about it: here's the hypocrisy of it all! And perhaps it is no great surprise that Soros appears to be behind the power grab.
