  • Female Student Shaves Head to Fight 'Gender Norms'

    When a kid goes off to college, you expect him or her to be learning how to handle the reality of adulthood. That's literally the point of college. But here we have the exploits of feminist activist Yvonne Nguyen, who has shaved her head to make ... a STATEMENT. She didn't shave it to support a friend who is fighting cancer, though -- that's always a great move. Nor did she do it because she just likes the way it looks. While it's not my thing, I'm not the one who has to wear it, so more power to her....
  • White Social Justice Warrior Dies at Hands of Black Killer

    Nobody had to tell Corrina Mehiel about the white privilege that killed her. It was a major focus of her life as a white Social Justice Warrior disguised as an artist. Earlier this month, that work took her to George Washington University in the nation’s capital. There she was part of a project drawing attention to one feature of white privilege or another. This time, lead paint in old houses occupied predominantly by black people. Just a few days after she was photographed with Nancy Pelosi grinning in approval, friends found Mehiel tied up, stabbed, tortured, and ultimately dead at...

    FULL TITLE: 'This is what's wrong with modern society': Passer-by 'stops to take a SELFIE' in front of victims of the Westminster terror attack A passer-by who appeared to take photos with a 'selfie stick' in front of victims of the Westminster terror attack has sparked fury. At least four people have died when a terrorist brought carnage to central London today, mowing down pedestrians on Westminster Bridge and attacking police with knives in the grounds of the Houses of Parliament. It is currently believed one attacker was involved, killing three people, including a policeman, and leaving at least 20...

    While the election and inauguration are over, it seems, at least to me that partisan politics are as strong as ever. It spills over not only on cable news, broadcast news, internet and print, but also into daily conversations and interactions. As a firm believer of seeing a bright future for all Americans and working towards that future, I am going to ask you to suspend belief for a few moments. Image a country where "optimism, ownership and a sense of control" is pervasive. These attributes, according to Dr. Robert Brooks and Dr. Sam Goldstein in "Raising Resilient Children," are...

    Tucker, the epitome of sangfroid, suggested that if Trump's administration were really a Nazi one, she and her friends would be wearing striped pajamas behind barbed wire instead of saying whatever they want to on national TV. But I don't believe she heard him. She certainly didn't respond. All her neurons were too busy firing downrange.

    Biz PAC Review ^ | 01/21/17 | Scott Morefield
    The Chinese put China first. The Russians put Russia first. Israelis believe in Israel first. So, what’s wrong with Americans seeking to put our country before a faceless, vacuous globalism that has eaten away at our manufacturing base, taken the lives of our best and brightest overseas, and threatened our standard of living for decades? According to neoconservatives like Weekly Standard editor Bill Kristol, apparently a lot. Kristol let out a tweetstorm before and during Donald Trump’s “America First” themed inauguration speech Friday, highlighted by this gem: "I'll be unembarrassedly old-fashioned here: It is profoundly depressing and vulgar to hear...

    Elderly throwback candidate enlists elderly throwback husband's elderly throwback VP. It’s no secret that Hillary Clinton is throwing everything at the wall, hoping that something will “stick” with millennials. She desperately needs their support but, so far, they’re less enthusiastic than one of those panda bears that won’t have sex to save its own species. Something has to be done, so Hillary has unveiled her secret millennial-attracting weapon.

    The mind boggles, as during her press conference in Orlando, Attorney General Loretta Lynch casually admitted that she has no idea of the location of the wife of the Orlando shooter – who may well have been aware of his attack and provided material support for it. Don’t believe me? "Has the shooter’s wife left the state of Florida?" a reporter asked Lynch during her press conference Tuesday. "Right now, I don’t know exactly the answer to that," Lynch candidly replied. "I believe she was going to travel but I do not know exactly her location now."
  • What is it like to fire an AR-15? It’s horrifying, menacing and very very loud

    It feels like a bazooka — and sounds like a cannon. One day after 49 people were killed in the Orlando shooting, I traveled to Philadelphia to better understand the firepower of military-style assault weapons and, hopefully, explain their appeal to gun lovers. But mostly, I was just terrified. Many gun shops turned down our request to fire and discuss the AR-15, a style of semi-automatic rifle popular with mass killers such as San Bernardino terrorist Syed Farook and similar to the Sig Sauer MCX rifle used by Orlando terrorist Omar Mateen. Killers in mass shootings used AR-15, thanks to...

    Accuracy in Academia ^ | June 3, 2016 | Malcolm A. Kline
    When we had the pleasure of co-hosting actress, and first time author Stacey Dash at our first author's night this year, I noted that she frequently stressed her pride in being independent-minded in interviews. As she shows in her newly published memoirs, the industry she works in has tried to stifle her independence and doesn’t give her credit for having much of a mind. The powers-that-be in Hollywood are wrong on both counts. Hollywood was never a particularly conservative place nor was the industry it is famous for especially right-leaning. Yet and still, in days of yore there was a...
  • Republican party now more hated in US than it's been in 24 YEARS and Donald Trump may be to blame

    (UK) Daily Mail ^ | April 29, 2016 | James Wilkinson
    The Republican Party is now more hated than it's been in 24 years, new research shows - and it might be the fault of Donald Trump. In October, 37 percent of people polled had a favorable view of the Republican Party and 58 percent viewed it negatively. Now those numbers are 33 percent in favor and 62 percent against, according to data released by the Pew Research Center Thursday. That puts the party at its lowest point since 1992 - the latest point in a drop that has coincided with the rise of Trump.

    Sen. Ted Cruz blamed an "extreme strain of Islam" for Tuesday's terrorist attacks in Brussels, which saw at least 34 killed and 170 injured after two explosions hit the Belgian capital. Cruz also argued in a statement that the attacks are not "isolated incidents." The two attacks took place outside of the Brussels airport and the Maelbeek metro station near the European Union less than a week after Salah Abdesalah, the terrorist behind the Paris attacks in November, was captured.
  • Reid: 'Snobbery of the Founding Fathers' to Blame For Presidential Nominating Process

    NewsBusters.org ^ | March 15, 2016 | Matthew Balan
    On Monday's All In, MSNBC's Joy Ann oddly asserted that "what could end up saving the Republican Party" from a Donald Trump nomination is "the snobbery of the Founding Fathers and the early proponents of the system, because the popular vote...doesn't choose the nominee. It's chosen at the state conventions. It's chosen by party insiders." Reid might have been thinking of the Electoral College system, where the voters in each state choose electors, who then vote for a specific nominee for president. [video below] Host Chris Hayes turned to Reid and Buzzfeed News's McKay Coppins for their take on the...

    In his most extensive remarks yet on the 2016 presidential race, Mitt Romney on Tuesday said he shared the feeling of many Americans that Washington has failed them and urged national leaders to take on big problems, including issues that the GOP has rarely put at the fore during the past year, such as climate change, poverty, education and income inequality.

    (CNN)Ted Cruz argued that since he's the only candidate who has been able to beat Donald Trump, he's the candidate conservatives should turn to as the chief alternative to the businessman. "It is now apparent that the only campaign that can beat Donald Trump and that has beaten Donald Trump is our campaign," he said in an interview on "State of the Union" with CNN's Jake Tapper. Cruz argued that while Trump has "consistently managed to score in the 20s and 30s," many voters view him unfavorably and are concerned about his chances in a general election. "An awful lot...

    Rick Perry just endorsed Ted Cruz and I posted that news in a thread this morning. It's gotten over 100 comments. On it I posted Rick Perry's comment in defense of Ted Cruz about the "New York Values" dust-up [Comment #84 at the link above]. [Rick Perry: "...."Mr. Trump took umbrage by Ted Cruz talking about New York values, and, you know, became very serious about - as we all were - what happened on September the 11th of 2001," he said. "We were all New Yorkers that day - don't get confused with that, but you know, I would...

    I’ve long had suspicions that Sen. Bernie Sanders is absolutely cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs, but his latest tweet pretty much put any doubts I may have had completely at rest. Sanders made a ridiculous statement about ATM withdrawal fees, and as you can probably guess, the responses were priceless. Oh, Bernie. Just what exactly are we going to do with you? Besides not elect you as president that is. Obviously, this man is 100 percent out of touch with reality. Bonkers. Loco. A few french fries short of a full Happy Meal.
