Johnson Lands Endorsement From Major US Daily

US Libertarian presidential nominee Gary Johnson has received an endorsement from a major newspaper in Virginia, a much-needed boost to the former New Mexico governor’s shaky bid for the White House.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch wrote in a Sunday editorial that it would back Johnson because “neither [Republican nominee] Donald Trump nor [Democratic nominee] Hillary Clinton meets the fundamental moral and professional standards we have every right to expect of an American president.”

No second referendum on Brexit, says newly-appointed minister

UK Brexit secretary David Davis says there will be no second referendum and that Britain will leave the European Union as planned.

“There will be no attempt to stay in the EU by the back door. No attempt to delay, frustrate or thwart the will of the British people. No attempt to engineer a second referendum because some people didn’t like the first answer,” he told UK MPs on Monday.

“Both sides of the argument must respect the result,” said Davis, who was addressing the parliament for the first time since he was appointed on July 13.

The Burkini Kerfuffle: Secularism Vs. Liberalism In France

In summers past, news stories about swimwear on French beaches would turn up only in fashion magazines or the Style sections of major newspapers. This summer is different, thanks to the kerfuffle going on over “burkinis.” News of it is hard to avoid.

This is understandable: it is a man bites dog story.

The Almost-War On Syria Three Years Ago

Three years ago, when a reluctant President Barack Obama was about to launch an attack on Syria, supposedly in retaliation for President Bashar al-Assad crossing a “red line” against using chemical weapons, Obama smelled a rat — or rather he sensed a mousetrap.

Advised by some of his intelligence advisers that the evidence blaming the Syrian government for the lethal sarin attack was weak, Obama disappointed many of Washington’s neocons and liberal war hawks, including those in his own administration, by deferring action. He tossed the issue to Congress, thus guaranteeing a delay.

Defend Your Person, Your Property, And Your Liberty

What book is important enough that I read it once a year? The Law by Frederic Bastiat. Written in 1848 as a response to socialism in France, this book essay is just as relevant today as it was then.

“What, then, is law? It is the collective organisation of the individual right to lawful defence.

This Guardian Piece Touting Bill Gates’ Education Investment Brought To You By Bill Gates

The Guardian (8/31/16) published a broadly positive report on Liberian education, which is handing over the reins of 120 primary schools to a consortium of private education companies and NGOs in a pilot program exploring privatization of the West African nation’s schools. One passage in particular was especially glowing:

Former Jew Supports Open Debate on the Holocaust

If I say the Great War never happened, I don't go to prison. If I say the Civil War never happened, I don't go to prison. If I say passenger jets did not bring down the two World Trade Centers, I don't go to prison.

But when I ask for a single wartime photograph of a homicidal gas chamber in Israel, and a dozen other countries, I put myself at risk for prison time. This is manipulation, this is mendacity - and I stand opposed to both.

As an American citizen, proud of my 1st Amendment rights, I want to know the truth and to have the right to ask any question...
