The Death of Free Speech: The West Veils Itself

Last week, Nazimuddin Samad sat at his computer at home and penned a few critical lines against the Islamist drift of his country, Bangladesh. The day after, Samad was approached by four men shouting "Allahu Akbar!" ("Allah is great!") and hacked him to death with machetes. But this and other shocking killings have not been worth of a single line in Europe's newspapers. Is it because these bloggers are less famous than the cartoonists murdered at Charlie Hebdo? Is it because their stories did not come from the City of Light, Paris, but from one of the poorest and darkest cities in the world, Dhaka? No, it is because the West has capitulated on freedom of expression.

George Orwell's Ghost Is Laughing - Obama's "No Boots On The Ground" Doublespeak

What’s the difference between “boots on the ground” and military personnel wearing boots who are engaged in combat – and perhaps dying – on the ground? If you can answer that question convincingly, perhaps you’d like to apply for John Kirby’s job, because he’s not doing it very successfully. Kirby is the State Department spokesman who, in answer to a question from a reporter about the 250 US troops being sent to Syria, denied President Obama ever said there’d be “no boots on the ground” in Syria.

Delaware Has One Billion Reasons Not To Change Its Laws Of Incorporation

In the aftermath of the Panama Papers scandal, one topic that will only continue to receive attention as this topic moves along, is the state of Delaware and its perceived status as a U.S. tax shelter. According to Bloomberg, the state has about 1.1 million business entities, and one single building located at Wilmington's 1209 Orange Street is the home address of 285,000 companies including Alphabet (Google), Ford Motor Co., and Wal-Mart. However, as pressure from mounts from the outside asking Delaware to reform some of its laws around incorporation and business in general, there is one good reason why the state will choose to leave everything at the status quo if at all possible.

Trump On Hillary: "If She Were A Man She Wouldn't Get 5%"

As the battle heats up between the presumptive nominees for President, the word-wars have begun. Following Hillary's "love Trump's hate" breaking-barriers speech last night, a seemingly calmer, friendlier Trump went after Hillary exclaiming that "the only thing she's got going is the woman's card...and the beautiful thing is that women don't like her." Trump added that he'll "do far more for women than Hillary Clinton will do," and that "if Hillary Clinton were a man, I don't think she'd get 5 percent of the vote."

The $2 Trillion Gamble That Saudi Arabia Cannot Win

The Vision for 2030 is mostly smoke and mirrors. Saudi Arabia probably cannot replace the money it will lose if oil goes out of style and so is doomed to downward mobility and very possibly significant instability. It has been a great party since the 1940s; it is going to be a hell of a hangover.
