Demise of Trophy Hunting in Africa
IRA FISCHER—Most lion hunts in Africa are “canned”, leaving no means for the animal to escape from a fenced-in pen. Indeed, the operators commonly offer their facilities on a “no kill no fee” basis. These heartless acts require no skill and is not a game, as it does not involve a willing participant. Calling it a “sport” is a misnomer. Trophy hunters claim that hunting is akin to what natural predators do by keeping populations strong and healthy. This is at odds with Darwin’s survival of ...

10 of the Most Sociopathic Washington Post Columns
ADAM JOHNSON—When Post columnists aren’t plotting war, they’re plotting the slightly more socially acceptable, liberal “alternative” to war: starving other countries’ economies into submission.

The Cult of Hunting and Its Timely Demise

Washington and Tel Aviv lurching toward a war with Iran
BILL VAN AUKEN—Defense Secretary Gen. James Mattis Monday indicated that the more than 2,000 US troops presently deployed inside Syria would not be going anywhere anytime soon. “We do not want to pull out before the diplomats have won the peace,” he said. “You win the fight—and then you win the peace.”
