Who, one might ask, better to understand, advocate, and take action on US interests around the world than the former Secretary of State? Doesn't Ms. Clinton's background as past head of the State Department for Barack Obama round out her other training in domestic affairs as the perfect US Head of State, better described in our hawkish-lexicon as...
In the end, "equal work, equal pay" (a) lowers human potential and (b) creates a more oppressive social world, contrary to what the feminist ideologues would like us to believe. Perhaps it is now high time for men to start what I call a "masculist" movement to counter the increasingly extremist pushes by feminists
Mississippi governor Phil Bryant's signing of House Bill 1523 is disingenuously disguised as a "religious freedom" law, it actually is, critics contend, nothing more than a blatant license to discriminate. The law basically allows anyone to cite "religious beliefs" as a reason to discriminate against anybody
Today is the International Day of Sport for Development and Peace, highlighting the importance of sport on the way to implementing the 17 Sustainable Development Goals, the post-2015 agenda to improve the lives and livelihoods of millions of people around the globe. Pride of place goes to sport.

The so-called "Panama Papers" are a bombshell, but who will die from the bomb fragments? The most provocative, and most valuable media frenzy wise story of these Panama papers is all about Russian President Vladimir Putin, of course
From Monday 4th April, all refugees and economic migrants arriving in Greece from Turkey after 20th March - the majority Syrian and Iraqis fleeing for their lives, risking the perilous sea crossing in which over eight hundred have died, the risk being preferable to the dangers at home - will be returned to Turkey.
Another perfect display of priggish, pig-faced insolence, arrogance, top-down anachronistic neo-colonialist bilge from the one and only Philip Hammond from Essex, England, who thinks he decides who governs Syria... the British Foreign Secretary who under his own standards and those of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office he heads, simply has to go.
As they lambast their latest "despot", Syria's President Assad - a man so popular in his country and the region that the US Embassy in Damascus had, by the end of 2006, devised a plan to oust him (1) arms sales to countries where human rights are not even a glimmer on the horizon have for the US (and UK) become an eye watering bonanza.
The Middle East, the birthplace of the three divine religions, is one of the most important regions in the world. Every country has unique faith systems, however, even in multicultural states, most faith groups live an introverted life under oppression
Movies are used to set official stories in stone, and a movie is going to be made about the heroic capture of a badly wounded 19 year old kid, not old enough to buy a beer, who, despite being shot up and severely wounded, is alleged to have written a confession in the dark on the side of a boat under which he was hiding to escape execution
March 20 marked the thirteenth anniversary of an action resulting in the equivalent of a Paris, Brussels, London 7 July 2005, often multiple times daily in Iraq ever since. As for 11 September 2001, there has frequently been that death toll and heart break every several weeks, also ongoing.
