Whose Data Is It Anyway?

Derek Hunter, The days of hand written letters and notes is over, it’s all digital now. As such, we find ourselves in a weird position where our private thoughts aren’t sealed in an envelope, but basically handled in an accurate version of “telephone” by third party companies on the honor system that they won’t reveal

Cronyism: Unions & Politicians Fight Norwegian Air’s Access Because They Offer Cheap Flights

Frank Camp, Thursday, ultra-low budget Norwegian Air announced $65 flights from three east coast airports to various European cities, and the airline industry broke into a collective rage-panic. The $65 flights are merely an introductory price, and don’t include a variety of optional fees. After the introductory phase, flights will be set at a still-thrifty

Islamic State planning attacks in Britain

Islamic State militants are planning “indiscriminate attacks on innocent civilians” in Britain on a scale similar to those staged by the Irish Republican Army 40 years ago, the head of the country’s new terrorism watchdog said.

How the Rest of the World Views the Political Happenings in the United States

Derek Hunter, Trapped By The Past. I’ve been wondering lately how the rest of the world views the political happenings in the United States. My only glimpse on this had come through the US media, which presented an unpleasant picture but is completely untrustworthy. So I decided to see for myself. With my wife having

Leftist Magazine Shows Trump In Crosshairs: ‘Why Not’

Truth Revolt, “It’s not an incitement to anything.” Riiight. Leftist magazine The Village has come under heavy fire for lacing their cover with a picture of President Trump in crosshairs with the caption, “Why Not.” Dubbing itself “Ireland’s political and cultural magazine,” The Village crossed a tasteless line with an article that asks several questions about the potential assassination of Trump.

Here are 14 of the Best, Worst, and Craziest Things to Happen in 2016

Erika Haas,  2016 has been, well, interesting. The world lost some of the biggest names in music, acting, literature and politics; Britain reached its breaking point – and apparently so did America; dozens were killed in terror attacks across the globe; the Cubs got their miracle; and then there were those creepy clowns. Here’s a

It Must End: Blurred Lines of Opinion, News and Social Media Profanity

Bryan Crabtree, We have a serious problem with online-harassment, fraud, distortion and lies by media outlets. And, many of our citizens have turned online dialogue and comment threads into pornography. Something has to be done. Fake News.

Why Facebook is polluting the media environment with garbage

Howard Kurtz,   How on earth did fake news become so popular? I don’t mean the major media stories that some of you find unfair or exaggerated. I’m talking about made-up-stuff being merchandized for clicks and profits. And since such fare spreads like wildfire on Facebook, the social network is under fire for not curbing

State Department releases deleted emails between Abedin, Clinton

State Department officials produced 323 pages of correspondence from Hillary Clinton‘s tenure on Monday, including previously undisclosed emails between Clinton and top aide Huma Abedin that have since been classified. The emails come on the heels of FBI Director James Comey’s announcement late last week that his agents had uncovered new emails related to their

Americans Finally Get a Bite at the Apple

Armstrong Williams, Perhaps one of the most underreported stories of recent weeks was the European Union’s ruling on Apple’s tax arrangement with Ireland. After a three-year investigation, the EU levied what is believed to be the largest and most controversial tax penalty in its thirty year history. The implications of this are obviously of great

RNC Convention: Speaking Truth to Power

Chris Mills, If I am ever blessed enough to speak truth to power in a venue such as the RNC Convention I would say something like this. Approximately four-hundred years ago, or forefathers, English Separatists, shoved off from the shores of England, shrugging off tyranny and seeking religious freedom. You see, the Monarchy dictated what
