The Anglosphere and Election

Globally and abroad, experts say religious freedom more than a ‘commodity’

Marathon ma’am: the queen’s record reign

Royalists and commemorative-china merchants will rejoice as Elizabeth II notches up her 23,226th day on the throne today, overtaking her great-great-grandmother, Victoria. Republicans are as heavily outnumbered as in 1952, when the 25-year-old queen began her reign. But much else about Britain is unrecognisable. It has been transformed from the world’s factory into its factotum, with manufacturing jobs replaced by those in financial, legal and business services. Immigration has increased the non-white population from 75,000 to around 8m. Gays can marry, while fewer straights bother: nearly half of children are born out of wedlock, against 6% at the start of Elizabeth’s reign (unwed couples are no longer barred from her annual garden party).  Finish Reading - Click Here

'Brexit' stage right

By Lee Cohen, contributor

May 18, 2015

Last week, I had the pleasure of meeting with a Dutch conservative member of the European Parliament, who painted a picture of the EU that is alarming — of rejection of the foundations that made the West great and of apologies for, rather than action plans against, the extremism that threatens us daily. In the context of last week's U.K. elections, this insider view makes the case even stronger that the U.K. should reconsider its current relationship to the European Union; what some have termed the possible Brussels exit or "Brexit." The future of the U.K. matters well beyond its borders, and has consequences for the U.S. and the globe.

Now that the initial elation of British Prime Minister David Cameron and the Tories' consequential victory is wearing off, the turbulence of governing with a knife-edge majority is coming into focus. Two of the largest-looming challenges include popular support, or lack thereof, for the future of Britain in the EU; and Scotland within Britain. Leaving aside for now the Scottish independence issue, let's consider the question of the U.K.’s relationship to Europe. -

U.K. Should Hold EU Referendum as Soon as Possible, Says BOE’s Mark Carney

LONDON—The U.K. should hold a referendum on membership of the European Union as soon as it can to limit uncertainty for businesses and investors, the governor of the Bank of England said Thursday.  The remarks come as U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron is embarking to deliver on an election pledge to give British people a vote by the end of 2017 on whether the U.K. should remain in the EU. Some within the U.K. government hope that a referendum could be held in 2016 to resolve the matter sooner. - CLICK HERE   

Legendary Marine General Jim Mattis On What Makes This Generation of American Veterans Different

By Brian Adam Jones

The general, who last year retired his post as commander of U.S. Central Command and finished a remarkable career of military service, is well known for his no-nonsense brand of rhetoric. He’s a tough-talking brilliant military tactician who has few peers in American history. His hour long speech last week was great, and many have covered his remarks on post-traumatic stress where he said that veterans were not victims. It’s an important message, but I was struck by something else Mattis said, about the next great generation of modern military veterans.  “And here I speak directly to the combat veterans of our current wars in Iraq and Afghanistan,” he began.

On what makes veterans stand out among this generation:

“All volunteers, all volunteers, you look past the hot political rhetoric swirling around these little understood wars and you rallied to the flag. You signed blank checks payable with your lives to the American people. And for the first major war in our history, our nation fought without a draft. Unlike the Civil War, unlike World War I, unlike World War II, unlike Korea, unlike Vietnam — a draft that pushed me into the military — you, the volunteers of this war, are the element of this generation that is demonstrably, that is demonstrably great, shown not by your words, but by your actions.

“Barack, you said it and you’re right — every religion has its extremists,” Cameron countered. “But we have to be frank that the biggest problem we have today is the Islamist extremist violence that has given birth to ISIL, to al-Shabab, to al-Nusra, al Qaeda and so many other groups.”
