We will never move forward if we don't have equality
[ARABNEWS] We are witnessing countless wars in the world today. Every time one conflict calms down, another flares up. Yesterday’s enemy may become today’s ally and vice versa. However,
you can observe a lot just by watching...
with all these wars changing sides and places, there is one battle that is always engaged: The permanent war against women.

This is no exaggeration or augmented feminism, and we are not begging for solidarity. Even if everyone rejects war practices against women, such as killing, raping and enslaving, there are always cultures, laws and practices that pave the way for such violent actions.

CIA Warns of Extensive Chinese Operation to Infiltrate American Institutions
[Freebeacon] The CIA has issued a classified report detailing China's far-reaching foreign influence operations campaign in the United States, which imparts financial incentives as leverage to permeate American institutions.

In an unclassified page of the report obtained by the Washington Free Beacon, the CIA cautions against efforts by the Chinese Communist Party to stipulate funding to universities and policy institutes in exchange for academic censorship.

"The CCP provides ’strings-attached' funding to academic institutions and think tanks to deter research that casts it in a negative light," the report says. "It has used this tactic to reward pro-China viewpoints and coerce Western academic publications and conferences to self-censor. The CCP often denies visas to academics who criticize the regime, encouraging many China scholars to preemptively self-censor so they can maintain access to the country on which their research depends."

The CIA warning joins a growing call by U.S. lawmakers and intelligence officials to investigate China's involvement on American college campuses. The agency declined to comment on the report.

#1  A little late to notice the commies taking over our academic institutions.

Here's a strategy before its beyond recovery. Have state institutions go full back to A&Ms, previously agricultural and mechanical, but now (practical) application and medical. Focus on the STEMs, dump the arts leaving 'private' interests to take up those subjects. The Chinese then can subsidize that losing (and destructive) side of the house.

Maj. Gen. Jeffrey Snow: The truth about the Army and careers
[Fayetteville Observer] Unfortunately, the growing divide between the military and society was apparent last month when a teacher’s inaccurate and misinformed statements about the quality of America’s armed forces made national headlines.

As a U.S. Army officer for more than 30 years, I can tell you our nation’s military services are among the most respected organizations in the world, and the individuals who choose to serve deserve the support of our nation’s people.

About 50 percent of young Americans today admit they know little to nothing about our military. As a nation, we are failing them, and we are failing ourselves.

College graduates are averaging around $30,000 in student loan debt. I wish they had known they could have graduated debt free while contributing to something bigger than themselves. Having a skilled and educated force truly is a priority.

Hit job on conservative family reveals how low journalists will go and other media madness
[FoxNews] Journalism can do great things or awful ones. The Daily Beast’s Taylor Lorenz took the awful route. She decided to out the social media famous daughters of a prominent conservative woman – Pamela Geller.

There’s an enormous problem with that. Geller is publisher of The Geller Report, the author of “Fatwa: Hunted in America” and a vocal critic of radical Islam. She was targeted by armed radical Muslims in Garland, Texas, where police saved her and others from the attack and killed the two Islamic terrorists. Connecting her to her daughters puts them at risk, too.

No one at The Daily Beast seems to care about that point.

What Lorenz did was endanger the four sisters who, in her words, “have gone to great lengths to conceal their connection to their mother.” Why? Because: “None of the girls have spoken out or denounced their mother’s extremist views.”

That’s it. Lorenz set out to destroy these four young women as a way of harming their mother by digging through old posts and humiliating them. Because that’s the way the left plays the game now. Then she proceeded to tweet as she caused them harm, costing them business connections. Here’s The Daily Beast quick to note just one example: “Oath cancels show starring Muslim-hater Pamela Geller's Instagram-star daughters.”

The story went viral as all awful journalism tends to do. Cosmo, Variety, TMZ and others all followed with stories. Not because of a few stupid things the young women might have said, but because the left is going after Geller.

The article attacked Geller’s comments as “racist, Islamophobic.” That apparently gave Lorenz carte blanche to do anything to the family. But she also cited the discredited Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) to make her bogus point.

Even Politico called the SPLC out for straying from its roots as a legitimate civil rights organization. And National Review gutted it in a new article. The SPLC is the same group that attacked respected scholar Christina Hoff Sommers from the American Enterprise Institute in its report on “Male Supremacy.”

What Lorenz did was far worse. Someone should have introduced her to the Society of Professional Journalists Code of Ethics, which includes a whole section urging that journalists “minimize harm.” It further adds: “Weigh the consequences of publishing or broadcasting personal information.”

As in this case, where the consequences now mean these young women have become potential targets for ISIS. But Lorenz didn’t care. She got to hurt Geller, jeopardize the lives of her daughters, make the left happy and help make a name for herself. Impressive, if you can live with yourself.

The Resurrection of Jeff Sessions
h/t Instapundit
...Sessions made news this week by authorizing the Department of Justice to sue the state of California for preempting federal immigration laws. Today he delivered some strong words to a convention of the state's Peace Officers Association:

...Meanwhile, however, some on the right were still criticizing Sessions. They intimated he was making this stand on immigration, justified as it was, to distract from his failure in dealing with the crisis within the FBI and other intelligence agencies, the distressing misuse of the FISA court to enable the illegal surveillance of American citizens and probably of the president himself.

...I have been hearing discreet rumors for some time that Sessions was working behind the scenes on this. And then tonight the following appeared on Jake Gibson's Twitter account previewing an interview conducted with the attorney general by Fox News's Shannon Bream.
Sessions on calls for second Special Counsel: "I have appointed a person outside of Washington, many years in the Department of Justice, to look at all the allegations that the House Judiciary Committee members sent to us and we're conducting that investigation."

...Listening to the actual interview, although he was surprisingly laudatory of Trump, Sessions was still guarded on FISA and related matters. On some level, that was unnerving. Most of us know the gravity of the situation and are as anxious as Trump, almost anyway, to see that something is done, that justice is served. But like it or not, in order for justice to be served, Sessions has to be circumspect now. He has no choice -- he cannot show his cards yet. Even a special counsel might be too much or too obvious. He has to do everything according to Hoyle and more. Everything has to be as buttoned down as possible, the IG report in, for accusations to stick in a situation of such national contentiousness. We will all still have to listen to Adam Schiff for a while.
But take heart. As someone has told us, " Revenge is a meal which tastes best when it is cold." The longer this takes, the better -- say to around Labor Day just as voters are starting to focus on the midterm elections. Until then, pazienza. If I am wrong about Sessions, if I or we misjudge him, there will be time to excoriate him later.
UPDATE: And speaking of "best tasted cold," look who just released the long suppressed Fast and Furious documents. Hint: it wasn't Eric Holder.

Bush says Trump ‘makes me look pretty good' by comparison
[The Hill] Former President George W. Bush often jokes that President Trump's administration makes his own former White House team look "pretty good," according to a Republican source.

The former Republican president regularly knocks the current administration, a source close to the Trump administration told National Journal, unable to understand why the White House often seems to be in chaos.

"Bush is often heard to remark, unable to stifle his trademark smirk: 'Sorta makes me look pretty good, doesn't it?' " National Journal reported.

Kamala Harris: AG Jeff Sessions Has No Credibility to Talk About History of Slavery, Reconstruction or the Civil War
[Breitbart] Wednesday on MSNBC’s "All In," Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) criticized Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ speech announcing a lawsuit against California for allowing sanctuary cities in which he referenced Confederate states seceding during the Civil War.

Harris said, "Indeed, indeed he did. Listen, as far as I’m concerned, Jeff Sessions should be advised, and I’ll advise him right now, that it’s a bad idea for him to start talking about anything to do with the history of slavery or Reconstruction or the Civil War in the United States. His credibility is pretty much shot on those issues. But on the topic at hand, Chris, I think Jerry Brown is absolutely right and Jeff Sessions, in particular, has clearly put a target on the back of California, and California’s going to fight. And I think that these folks are really mired in rolling back the clock in time, and that’s not going to happen. California represents the future, and they don’t like it, but there you go."

She continued, "First of all they’re hypocritical. You can look at members of this administration, whether it is the head EPA‐when he was attorney general of Oklahoma said that federal emission standards and other standards as it relates to greenhouse gas emissions should not apply to the states. You can look at this attorney general who has said that imposing the terms of the Voting Rights Act on the states creates an undue burden and is meddling with the affairs of each state. It’s hypocrisy at its height. Again, I think there’s a distraction in that they’re trying to suggest that this is about the Constitution when in fact, what they’re doing is playing politics. They’re playing politics, and they’re playing politics with California. This attorney general is doing that, and he’s going to lose."

She knows this and she's fighting with all she has to maintain the status quo. If she implies that Jeff Sessions was responsible for slavery most of her constituents are so damn ignorant they'll believe her.

Hair they come again
[DAWN] LET’S suppose a barber is constrained by certain factors, or his own beliefs for that matter, to refuse certain services to his clientele.

However unusual this situation may be, the barber can simply convey his decision to the client at the salon. It is simple.

But under what compelling circumstances would hairdressers ‐ in fact a whole barbers’ organization ‐ purportedly numbering in the thousands, hold a news conference to announce such a decision? Just as the practitioners in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa declare that, from now on, they will not trim beards or hair in the French or English style, the question is raised about the kind of social pressure they must face for matters to come to this point.

The pressure had been building up ‐ without any intervention from anyone, least of all the government.

It has indeed been a sustained campaign peppered along the way with incidents in which a district in one province expresses its disapproval of haircuts seen as ’unIslamic’, only to have its views echoed in another province.

In what is not a surprise, quite often the ban is supported by a senior, local official who is not just content with backing it morally, but who actually signs the letter asking barbers to behave, making it a governmental decree, as happened in a Balochistan
...the Pak province bordering Kandahar and Uruzgun provinces in Afghanistan and Sistan Baluchistan in Iran. Its native Baloch propulation is being displaced by Pashtuns and Punjabis and they aren't happy about it...

It is these small victories that embolden those wanting to impose a strict ’religious’ code.

Those who oppose them can face dire consequences, especially in the absence of a state that is unwilling to, or incapable of, playing its due role.

While announcing the restrictions, the association of KP hairdressers made an exception for foreigners ‐ mainly Chinese nationals ‐ working in the province, but obviously the fears that more and more stringent rules may follow a successful implementation of the hair and beard ban are based on genuine concerns.

The question is, who can stop the juggernaut once it is set in motion and is fed on something as emotive as faith?

Terror Networks
A Neoclassical Realist Analysis of the Daesh Quasi-State
At the link a multi-page analysis of Daesh
Absolutely shocking excerpt:
[SmallWarsJournal] One key factor contributing to the present conflict in the Middle East is that many consider the state borders as “artificial.” When the European Powers created the territorial boundaries after WWI they did so without regard to existing Arabic tribal boundaries or cultural environment. This created a substantial challenge for any future democratic organization to govern among divided people groups, whose only commonality is their state. This naturally and directly affected national cohesion, resulting in a challenge to weak governments, thus providing opportunities for other non-state and religious actors to take charge.
