    Canada Free Pressaa ^ | 07/16/16 | Tim Dunkin
    Sit down and shut up For far too long, the United States of America have been plagued by that grotesque mockery of “civil rights activism” known as Black Lives Matter. This group, along with allied Afrofascist groups like the New Black Panthers and the Nation of Islam (i.e. the Black Muslims), proclaimed itself to be dedicated to addressing supposed targeting of black American by the police. However, due to the influence of other more well-established radical groups, BLM has since branched out into a more broad spectrum sort of anti-capitalism, anti-law and order, anti-white, anti-America in general movement. As a...

    Franchesca Ramsey, Black actress and comedian, believes that “so-called progressive Western states” are no less racist than notorious Southern states. The most prominent racist region in the U.S. is the south. Mostly, people tend to refer all racist activities to the south but Ramsey during an episode of MTV’s Decoded expressed a more strict opinion, “Racism is a problem in the Northern and Western states too. And it always has been.” With only three examples to prove her claim, she silences all who doubted her opinion.

    Following the lead of a several trodden upon, yet Democrat-controlled municipalities, Washington D.C. recently approved a bill raising the minimum wage to fifteen dollars an hour by 2025. This move has been hailed by leftists as a triumph for equality and the little guys. Except minimum wage laws were first proposed by racists to keep minorities down, and current minimum wage laws further disenfranchise those in our society who are already disenfranchised.To help understand, a brief history lesson is in order. At the risk of wandering off topic, this brief history lesson will also serve to demonstrate why many leftists...

    In response to their own Catholic high school’s participation in a day of silence designed to show support for homosexuality, five nuns walked out of their classrooms last week. These strong women decided to stand with Catholic doctrine in recognition of their faith, beliefs and mission to teach their students the Church’s position on aberrant sexuality. Billed as a “national Day of Silence” the stunt was concocted by the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network a New York organization which has been pushing the “Day” scheme since 2000. The stand taken by the nuns comes as an affirmation of the...

    The Public Discourse ^ | April 27th, 2015 | Walt Heyer
    It is intellectually dishonest to ignore the facts that surgery never has been a medically necessary procedure for treating gender dysphoria and that taking cross-gender hormones can be harmful. Modern transgender activists, the descendants of Kinsey, Benjamin, and John Money, keep alive the practice of medically unnecessary gender-change surgery by controlling the flow of published information and by squelching research and personal stories that tell of the regret, unhappiness, and suicide experienced by those who undergo such surgery. Negative outcomes are only acknowledged as a way to blame society for its transphobia. Transgender clients who regret having taken this path...

    CHANDLER - A pastor was hoping to start a community conversation on racial equality when he and his predominantly white congregation installed a sign supporting the Black Lives Matter movement outside their Chandler church. Among the first people they heard from were vandals, who altered and then stole the sign. "(Congregation members) were sad, but not resigned," said the Rev. Andy Burnette of the Valley Unitarian Universalists. "To see that it's still controversial to say black lives matter saddened some of those folks." A "Black Lives Matter" banner was hung in early November with more than 100 signatures from members...

    In a display of solidarity with campus activists, the Penn State Board of Trustees voted unanimously to ban the making of snowmen on campus. "The snowman is the ultimate expression of white privilege," said a Black Lives Matter activist who refused to be identified. "It is a symbol of our hateful past and must be removed from our national consciousness. After all, every snowman is white. Can any rational person dispute this?" The vote culminated a months-long campaign of petition drives and public rallies. The goal was to get the ban in place before the first snowfall. With the vote,...

    Our Out-of-Control Court Today our nation's Supreme Court decided that it is the Supreme Being. It spit on God's Word and endorsed the abominable, immoral concept that the definition of marriage can be expanded to include a union between two people of the same sex. The God of this universe is the One who created and defined marriage as a union between one man and one woman, and no one has the authority to change that definition (Matthew 19:4-5). Further, God's Word makes it crystal clear that homosexuality is an abomination in God's sight and its practice is sufficient to...

    The American experiment in self-governance relies heavily on an engaged and informed citizenry, who understand the philosophical foundations of individual liberty. This is why it is important to read philosophers like Frederic Bastiat, John Stuart Mill, John Locke, Adam Smith, and others, as well as the writings of our Founders. Without historical context, we cannot understand the foundation of liberty. And without an understanding of the foundation of liberty, we cannot partake in civic engagement. As citizens, we are given rights from our Creator — but with those rights come certain responsibilities. These are civic duties.

Nova policy requires administrator approval before students hand out or post materials at school, the lawsuit states. In a letter to Zinos, the school's top administrator said the school has come to limit political, religious and controversial speech to its high school students in response to parental concerns.

    Suburban Albany is not known for its rip-roaring weekend scene, but this most recent Saturday night, it was the momentary center of the political universe, as an underfunded political party was using its quadrennial convention to try to force America’s most powerful and best-financed governor to submit to its demands. Though the Working Families Party’s conventions are typically low-key affairs, this one had drawn 800 activists and operatives and most of the New York press corps—all to see if the party would endorse conservative Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo or run a third-party candidate against him. In the end, when the...

    Leave it to Ann Coulter to get the Left’s panties in a wad over the latest trendy expression of concern: hashtag activism. The pundit tweeted her parody of the #BringBackOurGirls hashtag craze, in which several high-profile figures, including First Lady Michelle Obama, have released photographs of themselves with stern visages holding up signs bearing the hashtag. Coulter’s photo features a pouty face and the hashtag #BringBackOurCountry.Needless to say, the Left is up in arms over Coulter’s satire. From Talking Points Memo: Coulter posted a photo to Twitter with her own iteration of the hashtag, in an apparent attempt to...
  • Gowdy exposes media's complicity in Benghazi cover-up

    Brief press conference from last year when Trey Gowdy indicted the media for their failure in covering the Benghazi attack. Worth a watch. BTW, out of curiosity ... how many of us are motivated to post our complaints about the media here on FR or complain in conversations with others about the feckless media, yet never write letters* or emails or make phone calls to the media to call them out for abrogation of journalistic duty? Can we help stir up some sense of responsibility to inform the public if we constantly nudge them? *Personally, I think a letter is...

    Regarding the Boston Bombing and the Bundy Ranch invasion: The nation is getting a wake-up call. Bombs and gun battles in the streets. Heavily armed federal police forces declaring martial law and locking down neighborhoods and huge swaths of land in desert communities. Heavily armed federal land "management" and forest "service" agencies using military grade weapons and tactics to collect civil "debts" and threatening to "shoot" innocent men, women and children who get in their way. And then corrupt U.S. mob senators who are in on the take and who are perpetrating the destruction of America have the audacity to...

    The Christian organization Focus on the Family is releasing a movie in theaters May 6 called “Irreplaceable” about the value of traditional families, the importance of fathers being engaged in their children’s lives and the healing power of forgiveness. But apparently to some advocates for the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender, or LGBT, community, that’s a cardinal sin. LGBT advocates have launched an effort to disparage the movie online, petition against it and work to make sure “Irreplaceable” isn’t seen in your local theater. Focus President Jim Daly reports in a blog post that some of the more than 700...

    Chris Brown, left, mother of Christopher Brown for whom the new law is named, is with supporter, Tessa Hill-Aston, president of the Baltimore NAACP. Christopher's Law was passed by the Maryland General Assembly and is awaiting the governor's signature. The legislation requires police officers to be trained in CPR, cultural sensitivity, the proper use of force, and interacting with the physically and mentally disabled. "This is an umbrella of protection," said Chris Brown, 40, for whose son the bill (HB0294/ SB0542) was named. "This bill will ensure that police officers are trained in life-saving techniques. They already know how to...

    What do the forced departure of Brendan Eich from Mozilla and #CancelColbert have in common? They are both examples of Fakectivism. Fakectivism is social media activism by small numbers of people that is integrated into the news cycle because it matches the media’s political agenda.Every Tea Party member knows that media coverage of actual protests is unequal. Twenty students, most of them volunteers at an environmental non-profit, protesting Keystone will get media coverage that a thousand Tea Party members protesting ObamaCare won’t receive.The same is true of online protests.Many of the real life protests covered by the media are fake....
