How close are we to living in the first stages of a fascist state? We have been hosting these Restoration Weekends for 27 years. In 19 of those years we have held them at the Breakers Hotel here in Palm Beach. In all those years we have never missed a payment to the hotel or had a complaint about our events....

The unpleasant reality that we must face today is that there is a small subset of hard-line ideologues who oppose open discourse altogether. The fact that you may not feel comfortable speaking your mind openly, and may feel afraid of serious consequences, is viewed by these people as an accomplishment. It is easy to ignore this reality, but when it...

A 2018 decision by the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) upholding the conviction of an Austrian citizen, Elisabeth Sabaditch Wolff, by a Vienna court for "disparaging religious doctrines" has been used by Algeria to defend the sentencing a scholar to three years in prison for "denigrating the dogma and the precepts of Islam." Regrettably, it...

Common experience does not support the notion that safety is preferable to liberty. People are noted to take great risks, including risking their lives, to flee oppressive regimes. There are constitutional protections for liberty interests such as privacy and due process, even though those protections may be accompanied by risks to public safety....

Cartoonists were once known for being controversial. These days, they're not allowed. Michael Leunig, a cartoonist referred to as a "living national treasure," lost his role after he posted the cartoon.

We have a Constitution in Canada as a blessing by GOD. Stand firm in the blessings of GOD, and the true laws of Canada. Vaccines and PCR Tests are not mandatory in Canada and it is a criminal offense to force anyone to get a vaccine or a test for employment, business access or for any other reason.

The Taliban are mostly Pashtun. Massoud is Tajik. His father, Ahmad Shah Massoud, was the leader of the Northern Alliance before he was assassinated, and before the Northern Alliance overthrew the Taliban with American help. Ahmad Massoud was 12 when his father died. He went to Iran, then England where he trained for a year at the Royal Military...

What happened to the war cry of Democrats: "My body, my choice"? It only applies to murdering babies, but it doesn't apply to dangerous experimental shots that we don't want injected into our bodies. Weren't Jews injected with experimental drugs by the depraved Nazi government? Wasn't that a key part of the Nuremberg trials? That no government...

One could argue that there is a depressingly symbiotic relationship between the cowardice of the establishment and the cockiness of some Islamic extremists. The former emboldens the latter. In many ways the political and media classes, through promoting the idea of 'Islamophobia', have helped to pave the way for today's extremist intolerance of any...

How is it possible that Britain's best-selling author, a woman credited with having encouraged an entire generation of children to read more books, can be subjected to such gutter abuse and threats of murder and yet the prime minister says nothing? And the Guardian shuffles its feet? And the literary set carries on chatting about what fun last...
