"The path to understanding outcomes is to examine consequences of decisions in terms of incentives they create rather than goals they pursue." But sadly the left is all about goals, not results.

War of Ideas

"This blinds them to the struggles within Islam." There is an image in my mind of a two-panel cartoon. In the first, the jihad leaders have conquered the world. They have somehow prevailed and for perhaps 30 minutes have been congratulating each other. Then one of them says "Well, MY jihadists certainly showed everyone how to do it". At that point the internecine fight starts anew. The second panel is pure devastation. One man, bloody, battered, looks up and says "Well, Allah, I'm the only one left to worship you. But I'll do it right." Sadly, we cannot just sit back and let them all kill each other. But we need someone who has some connection to the real world to act.
Thanks for the info on what 'PBUH' really means. I thought it was 'Propeller Beanies Upon Him'. And it has occurred to me that some nasty-minded types will be saying he didn't go because he'd rather insult our allies than his own.

The Sword Is Mightier Than The Pen

From a 1971 Beach Boys song "Student Demonstration Time" come the lyrics: "The pen is mightier than the sword but no match for a gun".
The media already refuses to report all but the most startling cases of self-defense by a legally armed citizen. But an actual Charlie Hebdo style attack stopped by legally armed citizens would cause havoc. In the media strongholds, as they try in every way to discredit the armed citizens and downplay the incident.
I'm afraid we do not have time. The slow-motion democrats in the RNC seem incapable of understanding their candidates will not be supported by conservatives or libertarians. And another four years of left wing rule by "Pen and Phone" may put us past the tipping point.
Mr. Bloomberg seems to have had a life with no setbacks. He made a fortune in business, when many fail. He won the Mayor's office in NYC on his first run, even though he had to switch parties to do it. He cannot conceive of the idea of being wrong.
"If there is only one side “compromising”, isn’t that considered a surrender?" In the liberal lexicon compromising is defined as 'conservative surrender'. Just as it has been said that when negotiating with the Russians they worked from the concept "What's ours is ours, what's yours is negotiable", the lib.'s never intend to concede any point. This is why they work by increments. A little bit now, a little bit later, and nothing ever ceded back.

Black America’s Best Ally: Cops

Sadly, the leaders that Mr. Innis cites are not interested in serving either "their people" or "the public". They are interested only in personal power. We need to get past the demagogues who preach hatred, of whatever race, religion, gender or any other bias.
If the congresscritter gave a boilerplate speech to this bunch of bozos I don't see it as having much meaning. If he pandered to their hatreds it would make him unsuited for public office. On the other hand, we need to start labeling the Southern Poverty Law Center as the hate group that it is.

Are Facts Obsolete?

The Left Stream Media not only chooses which facts it will present to the public, it chooses how to present those facts. The new media gives people a chance to learn more, which is why the left is so hot to shut it down or become it's gatekeeper.
