    Many of the nation’s 3.5 million teachers found themselves feeling under siege this week as pressure from the White House, pediatricians and some parents to get back to physical classrooms intensified — even as the coronavirus rages across much of the country. On Friday, the teachers’ union in Los Angeles, the nation’s second-largest district, demanded full-time remote learning when the academic year begins on Aug. 18, and called President Trump’s push to reopen schools part of a “dangerous, anti-science agenda that puts the lives of our members, our students and our families at risk.”
  • If CNN Can’t Take Punches, They Shouldn’t Be Throwing Them

    The powers that be at CNN were in full outrage mode yesterday after Republican Sen. Martha McSally called Manu Raju, one of their congressional correspondents, a “liberal hack,” and refused to answer his questions. After the incident, much of the minimal airtime left over from trashing Donald Trump all day was expended in defense of Raju and the network, which they clearly feel, has been unfairly besmirched. I’ve got two words for them: toughen up. A statement from their PR department said, “It is extremely unbecoming for a U.S. Senator to sink to this level and treat a member of...

    In January 2018 the Oxford English Dictionary added to its normal definition of what has traditionally been a flake of snow, a feathery ice crystal. Now the OED snowflake is an overly sensitive or easily offended person or persons who believe they are entitled to special treatment on account of their supposedly unique characteristics. Life for them comes, or should come, with trigger warnings and safe spaces. Trigger warnings are needed to alert people that a text or image may be disturbing or upsetting. These were proposed at Cambridge University concerning Shakespeare, because of the sexual violence in some of...

    I am Puerto Rican, born and raised in the Palestine of the Caribbean — an island that has been passed around for centuries by two colonizing powers. I grew up with a father who believed that the United States was the Garden of Earthly Delights. In his telling, America was a magical Oz where everyone was equal and anything possible. He painted it not just as a country, but as an ideal. I never fully believed it, but that was his mantra. He gave me two choices when I turned 16 and was deciding where to go to university: Either...
  • MSNBC Laments Abortion Funding: ‘No Moral Compass on Right,’ Abortion Is About 'Freedom!'

    After spending Tuesday afternoon whining about Planned Parenthood opting out of Title X funding over an abortion gag order, MSNBC journalists kept up the shameless partisanship into the evening on The Beat With Ari Melber. To no one’s surprise, the MSNBC host brought on a far-left feminist panel to melt down over the news, who laughably attacked the right’s “morality” for not allowing government funding of abortion. After Melber introduced the topic, Liz Plank from Vox, ranted this was a “war on Americans” because the right to kill your child is “about freedom.” Geesh. She went on to sneer at...

    US President Donald Trump has blamed a teleprompter going "kaput" for a glaring anachronism in his Fourth of July speech. He told crowds on Independence Day the Continental Army "took over the airports" from the British during the American Revolutionary War in 1775. Explaining away the slip-up on Friday, Mr Trump also said it was hard to read the teleprompter in the rain. He hosted a military parade at the Lincoln Memorial on Thursday. During his "Salute to America" speech, he was talking about the year 1775 when he said: "Our army manned the air, it rammed the ramparts, it...

    “If you won’t play my way, I’m going to take my ball and go home!” One expects such behavior from 7-year-olds. Not from grownups. But that’s the behavior of 60 scientists, journalists, politicians, activists, and others who signed an open letter published in the (dependably sympathetic) Guardian Sunday saying, “we will no longer debate those who deny that human-caused climate change is real.” Why didn’t they just come right out and say, “Nya-nya-nya-nya-nya!” But they offer some reasons, or at least excuses, for taking their ball and going home. Let’s consider them. “We are no longer willing to lend our...

    On the eve of America’s Birthday, CNN played up a Gallup poll that suggested only 47 percent of Americans were “extremely proud” to be an American during Tuesday's edition of OutFront. To get their own unofficial tally on the mood of the country, the network found it amusing to send out reporter Jeanne Moos to interview New Yorkers about their level of patriotism. Of course, they highlighted the bitter anti-Trump liberals of the city.

    We’re having a moment for male tears — no, not the kind that the popular feminist mug metaphorically collects in pursuit of bringing down the patriarchy. We’re talking literal tears that men shed in moments of televised vulnerability. Take the Netflix reboot of “Queer Eye,” just renewed for a second season. Yes, it’s a makeover show with bubbly experts instructing schleppy men on the wonders of slim-cut jeans, five-minute grooming routines, Ikea and avocados. But it’s also a show about men who are stuck and held in place by fear, insecurity, past trauma or rigid norms of what it means...

    BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - A California judge has ruled in favor of a Christian baker who refused to bake a wedding cake for a same-sex couple. The judge denied a motion for a temporary restraining order filed on Wednesday against Cathy Miller, the owner of Tastries Bakery in Bakersfield, California. According to a press release sent by The Freedom of Conscience Defense Fund, the order would have compelled "Miller to create wedding cakes for LGBT persons, even though doing so would violate her sincerely held religious beliefs."

    The reflective Mary Eberstadt has the latest Weekly Standard cover story, asserting that the late rise of identity politics especially among the young descends from the decline in family, despite myriad other theories. An excerpt: Maybe that cultural scream of ‘mine!’ is issuing from souls who did have something taken from them—only something more elemental than the totemic objects now functioning as figurative blankies for lost and angry former children. As of today, less than 65 percent of American children live with both biological parents, even as other familial boughs have broken via external forces like the opioid crisis, criminality...

    This time targeting the increasingly-insufferable Jimmy Kimmel, a conservative street artist known for edgy, spontaneous work is at it again. Appearing on Los Angeles benches and telephone poles this morning were the latest pieces by “Sabo”, an otherwise-anonymous provocateur with a knack for generating headlines. With the ABC late night host increasingly moving toward political sermons and seemingly away from comedy, he presents a rich target for critics. Since the massacre in Las Vegas Sunday night, Kimmel has become particularly strident, lecturing the audience about gun control and other issues.

    "Sabo" created posters of Kimmel looking like a young Johnny Depp from the 1990 movie, 'Cry-Baby.' It's inevitable that late-night comedians who have become increasingly partisan in the President Trump era would earn the ire of conservatives, one of whom took his complaint to the streets early Thursday morning. His target: Jimmy Kimmel. The conservative, an artist who goes by the moniker, "Sabo," created posters of Kimmel looking like a young Johnny Depp from the 1990 movie, Cry-Baby. "Jimmy Kimmel is a Cry-Baby," reads the text above an image of Kimmel, greasy hair slicked back, clad in a leather jacket....

The defeated Democratic nominee stressed, however, that she does not believe there is a means to officially challenge the election’s outcome.

    After a third night of violence and unrest in St. Louis, about 100 protesters marched in silence along downtown streets Monday during the morning rush hour. Once they reached City Hall, the silence gave way to chants for justice. The city has been marked by protests since Friday, when former police officer Jason Stockley was acquitted on charges of murdering a black motorist after a police chase in 2011. Stockley is white. Overnight Sunday, police arrested more than 80 people after a peaceful protest turned violent as night fell. In a concentrated area downtown, some protesters smashed windows and overturned...
  • University President Apologizes For Hosting Black Students In Home With Cotton Decoration (PIC!)

    A university president in Tennessee apologized Friday for hosting black students in his home, which displayed a cotton decoration. Randy Lowry, president of Lipscomb University, apologized for showing centerpieces bearing cotton stalks while hosting black students at his home in an email sent to the school Friday and posted on Facebook. “The content of the centerpieces was offensive, and I could have handled the situation with more sensitivity,” said Lowry. “I sincerely apologize for the discomfort, anger or disappointment we caused and solicit your forgiveness.” The president reported that multiple students confided in him about the cotton decoration displayed during...

    Dems slam Trump for pardoning Arpaio during hurricane By Taylor Lorenz - 08/25/17 10:11 PM EDT Democrats lashed out at President Trump on Friday evening over his decision to pardon Joe Arpaio, the controversial former sheriff of Maricopa County, Ariz., as a huge storm barreled toward Texas. Trump faced intense criticism for issuing the pardon hours before Hurricane Harvey was set to hit the Gulf Coast, potentially causing devastating damage as it brought massive wind and rain. "Donald Trump just gave a free pass to his buddy Joe Arpaio, the nation’s most notorious agent of racism and bigotry, during a...
