Immigrant Overload, Not Brexit, Heralds The End Of The European Union

by Niall Fergusonvia South China Morning Post
Monday, June 18, 2018

It is rather hard to imagine a similar play being written about the European Union in the early 21st century. The influx of migrants would have precisely the opposite effect. Far from leading to fusion, Europe's migration crisis is leading to fission.

The Deep State And Tyranny

by Bruce Thorntonvia Front Page Magazine
Monday, June 18, 2018

The Department of Justice Inspector General’s Report released last week didn’t tell us anything we didn’t know, but merely added more damning evidence for the corruption of the FBI and its investigations over the last few years. More worthy of comment, as Andy McCarthy writes, is its refusal to use common sense and note the obvious interconnections among the various bad actors, and the bond of political bias, seasoned with careerism and arrogance, that united them.

Niall Ferguson On The John Batchelor Show: The West and the Rest (Part 1)

interview with Niall Fergusonvia The John Batchelor Show
Sunday, June 17, 2018

Hoover Institution fellow Niall Ferguson argues that, beginning in the fifteenth century, the West developed six powerful new concepts that the rest of the countries lacked: competition, science, the rule of law, modern medicine, consumerism, and the work ethic. These were the ‘killer applications’ that allowed the West to leap ahead of the Rest; opening global trade routes, exploiting new scientific knowledge, evolving representative government, more than doubling life expectancy, unleashing the industrial revolution, and hugely increasing human productivity.

Hoover Institution fellow Niall Ferguson notes that all over the world, more and more people study at Western-style universities, work for Western-style companies, vote for Western-style governments, take Western medicines, wear Western clothes, and play Western sports.

Obstructing An Election

quoting Victor Davis Hansonvia Carolina Coast Online
Friday, June 15, 2018

The story’s headline said “IG report says top FBI officials showed a ‘willingness to take official action’ to stop Trump.” That is damning. Because it destroys the credibility of the FBI and most definitely the agency’s hierarchy.

Friday, June 15, 2018

Monetary policy pervades all areas of our lives whether we realize it or not. The proverbial financial forces have laid the foundations for both society and civilization.
