Trayvon and Zimmerman: The Structure and Elements of a Disinformation Campaign

Trayvon%20as%20angelic%2013%20year%20old Trayvon and Zimmerman: The Structure and Elements of a Disinformation Campaign "Trayvon," of course, is Trayvon Martin, the black 17-year-old who was killed two months ago in Florida.  "Zimmerman" is George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch captain who shot him.  Referring to Martin by his first name and Zimmerman by his last is just one small tactic in the national media campaign to make Martin's death an enduring symbol of white racism. The Trayvon campaign is accurately described as "disinformation" because deception is a fundamental

Global Warming Melts Away

Hoven%20 %20GW%20Melts%201 Global Warming Melts Away Wondering where things stand on global warming?  Let's go to the science of it.  And by "science" I mean physical observations.  Nothing complicated.  What do thermometers say?  What's happening with polar ice caps?  And carbon dioxide? In the following analysis I use publicly available data as provided by government scientists at places like NASA, the U.K. Met office, and NOAA.  This is the data we're told to use

Deciphering the Occupy Wall Street Movement

How are we to understand the Occupy Wall Street (OWS) movement?  Is it, as many on the left insist, a commendable reaction to "obscene" inequalities in wealth?  Or is it, as according to the right, a union-financed, thinly disguised Obama-supported ruse to stir up egalitarian envy?  Both interpretations are partially valid, but let me offer a different take, and one that links OWS to countless similar political outcroppings that have flourished since

Misleading Report Released on Progress in Afghanistan

300px ISAF Logo svg Misleading Report Released on Progress in Afghanistan The April 2012 "Report on Progress Toward Security and Stability in Afghanistan," a biannual report to Congress in accordance with Section 1230 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2008 (Public Law 110-181) as amended, was provided to Congress.  The report falsely depicts operations in Afghanistan as a success.  This misleading report is merely paint placed on an old, run-down house. "The year 2011 saw the first year-over-year decline in nationwide

Chief Justice Roberts’ Marbury Moment

John%20Roberts Chief Justice Roberts Marbury Moment If the Supreme Court declares the Affordable Care Act unconstitutional, almost assuredly John Glover Roberts, Jr., the chief justice, will write the majority opinion.  Roberts' choice of words will weigh heavily on America's future.  More than just resolving a politically charged case, his opinion could determine the extent to which our republic is and remains a nation under law.  He must write a masterpiece not only for the present constitutional dilemma, but

Will Changes in a Electorate Sink Romney?

There's a notion floating on the right and left.  It goes like this: the electorate has changed so dramatically that it favors President Obama's re-election.  Will Mitt Romney be a November victim of generational and demographic tyranny?  Or will external factors -- including the president's dismal performance and policies -- impact the electoral equation to Romney's advantage? Mitt Romney's election strategy needs to account for changes in the electorate, making appeals that

Keynesianism and the Collectivist Dream

It's campaign season, and as usual, Democrats are employing their class struggle rhetoric to position a redistributive government agenda as the only way Americans can be saved from themselves and the greedy capitalists who prey upon them. Accustomed though we may be, this might seem an odd campaign strategy in light of recent polls showing widespread distrust of, and even contempt for, the federal government.  But they have no choice but to keep their
