    It is sadly common for conservative presidents and political leaders to be portrayed in a less-than-flattering light in the left-leaning textbooks used in public school and college classrooms, but a new volume on American history gives a new spin on the term “rush to judgment.” Less than a year-and-a-half after taking office as America’s sitting president, Donald Trump is already being maligned in the pages of an upcoming high school history text which insinuates that he and his supporters are driven by racism and that he is mentally unfit to serve as our Commander-in-Chief. Textbooks rarely receive a high profile...
  • UK headhunter Josh Harrison blasts unemployed under-25s on LinkedIn

    HEADHUNTER Josh Harrison made headlines after he branded unemployed young people “lazy little s***s” online — but he’s standing by his controversial comments. Mr Harrison, a headhunter from UK firm Harrison Allwood, made the comments in response to a LinkedIn post penned by entrepreneur Jack Parsons earlier this month. Mr Parsons, 24, had shared his own story of unemployment and rejection, and said the UK’s job market was “broken” for young people. But Mr Harrison, who is a millennial himself, responded by “calling bulls***” on Mr Parsons’ “poor us attitude”. “I’ll tell you right now that it has never been...

    Dick’s Sporting Goods announced on Monday it will destroy all of the unsold firearms it pulled off store shelves in February after the deadly Parkland school shooting. The sports retailer decided to destroy the assault-style rifles instead of returning them to the manufacturer, the Pittsburgh Post Gazette reported. On Feb. 28, 2018, the Pittsburgh-based company announced it would immediately stop selling assault-style rifles and ban the sale of all guns to anyone under 21. It was not immediately clear how many firearms will be destroyed. “We are in the process of destroying all firearms and accessories that are no longer...
  • Cops Are the Good Guys [video]

    04/16/2018 4:58:51 AM PDT · by servo1969 · 33 replies ^ | 4-16-2018 | David Clarke over 39 years, I was a police officer in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. For 15 of those years, I was the Sheriff of Milwaukee County. I’ve done everything you can do as cop—from walking the beat, to investigating murder, to running the agency. I’ve met a lot of cops—of every race, ethnicity and background. Here’s what I can tell you: Cops are not perfect. That’s not a news flash. But this might be: They don’t have to be perfect. They have to be excellent. And most officers reach excellence every single day, and often under very difficult circumstances—circumstances you can’t imagine,...
  • Wells Fargo Stems the Tide: Not a Bank’s Job to Set U.S. Gun Policy

    Wells Fargo stemmed the tide of the push for new financial restrictions on gun makers and sellers by stressing that it is not a bank’s job to set U.S. gun policy. Wells Fargo believes firearm policy is a debate for Congress instead. According to Reuters, Wells Fargo CEO John Shrewsberry said, “The best way to make progress on these issues is through the political and legislative process. In the meantime, Wells Fargo is engaging our customers that legally manufacture firearms and other stakeholders on what we can do together to promote better gun safety in our communities.” Wells Fargo’s refusal...

    Harvard Law School professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz, one of the country’s foremost defense lawyers and a civil libertarian who supported Hillary Clinton for president, condemned the raid. “If this were Hillary Clinton being investigated and they went into her lawyer’s office, the ACLU would be on every television station in America jumping up and down,” he told Fox News this week. However, the ACLU not only condones the raid on Trump’s; it is applauding it.

    The shocking raid on the office, home, and Manhattan hotel room of President Trump’s longtime personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, directed by a rogue independent prosecutor is the latest outrage in an out-of-control investigation aimed at reversing the results of the 2016 election. The raid Monday that was directed by Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III was a “disgrace” and a “pure and simple witch hunt,” President Trump told reporters at the White House. “It’s an attack on our country in a true sense. It’s an attack on what we all stand for.” Trump’s comments fueled speculation that he will try...

  • John Pavlovitz shows that Leftist arguments are fact-free and hate-filled

    Have you ever heard of John Pavlovitz?Right. I hadn't heard of him either. Still, thanks to the wonders of the internet, you can quickly learn about him.According to Pavlovitz's online bio, he's a "ministry veteran," which is his weird way of saying that he's been a practicing minister for a while. He says that he is "trying to figure out how to love people well and to live-out the red letters of Jesus." Get that? He's about "lov[ing] people well." He's also a Leftist darling: Pavlovitz, forty-eight, is a Wake Forest resident, minister at North Raleigh Community Church, and father...

    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak is shutting down his Facebook account as the social media giant struggles to cope with the worst privacy crisis in its history. In an email to USA Today, Wozniak says Facebook makes a lot of advertising money from personal details provided by users. He says the “profits are all based on the user’s info, but the users get none of the profits back.”

  • Why a 53-Year-Old Big-City Lawyer Who Has Never Shot a Gun Joined the NRA

    I am a 53-year-old lawyer who lives in a trendy neighborhood in a large diverse city with my wife and three kids. I have never owned a gun. In fact, even though I grew up in Louisiana ("Sportsman's Paradise"), I have never even pulled the trigger of any weapon except a BB gun. Yet, last week, I became a proud member of the NRA for the first time. I did so because the anti-gun hysteria that I've witnessed is dangerous, alarming, and ignores the facts. I've joined the NRA to stand up for them when they are viciously attacked, since...
  • Hawkins: Parkland Gun Control Activists Driving Americans Toward 2nd Amendment

    As Parkland gun control activists and their surrogates mock the idea of arming teachers, march for gun bans in D.C., and call for new gun controls via Twitter, they risk driving Americans toward the Second Amendment instead of away from it. They run this risk via their in-your-face gun control hubris, especially when that hubris is directed toward docile actors. For example, on Monday Rep. Steve King (R-IA) addressed Parkland students who want to raise the minimum age for gun purchases by asking, “If you are a teenager & believe you won’t be responsible enough to own a gun until...
  • Over a dozen states join Trump’s lawsuit against “Sanctuary State” California

    03/28/2018 7:41:52 AM PDT · by servo1969 · 18 replies ^ | 3-28-2018 | Leslie Eastman
    Earlier this month, we noted that California faced a lawsuit from the Department of Justice over its new status as a “Sanctuary State“. Several red and purple states have now boarded this particular “Trump Train”. Texas and more than a dozen other states led by Republican governors got behind the Trump administration on Monday in its lawsuit over California’s so-called sanctuary laws that protect people in the U.S. illegally. California’s laws are designed to interfere with or block federal immigration enforcement but the state does not have that authority, the other states said in a court filing in the U.S....

    Former Associate Justice John Paul Stevens was a foe of any broad reading of the Second Amendment while he served on the U.S. Supreme Court. He dissented from the 2008 majority decision in the District of Columbia v. Heller case, which held that there was an individual right to bear arms. Mr. Stevens is now going even further in his retirement, writing an op-ed column for the New York Times entitled "John Paul Stevens: Repeal the Second Amendment." Mr. Stevens is of the view that the Second Amendment is an artifact with no current beneficial purpose to serve. "Concern that...

A Toronto based site called blogTO reported: Toronto restaurant shocks vegans protesting meat Animal rights activists were horrified this weekend when the co-owner of a Dundas West restaurant they’d been protesting for weeks staged what appeared to be a counter-protest of his own.

    A satirical video that overdubs fiery rhetoric of Adolf Hitler (in German) over a speech given by student activist David Hogg at Saturday's "March for our Lives" in Washington has earned it a warning to would-be viewers on YouTube. The video channel, owned by Google, flagged the 56-second send-up of the gun control advocate -- who shot to fame following his reporting and commentary at the Parkland, Fla. school shootings -- as "inappropriate" or "offensive." Viewers attempting to watch the video were met with the following message, and then had to click "I understand and wish to proceed" in order...
