    If there’s one thing I’ve learned about the antivaccine movement, it’s that its members dislike being criticized. Oh, hell, let’s be honest. The really, really hate criticism and react very, very badly to it. Whereas you or I or other skeptics might react to criticism by trying to address it using facts, science, and reason, the first reaction of many antivaccine loons is to attack, attack, attack.

    DOG LOVERS IN central Iran are in uproar after authorities began confiscating their pets in an apparent crackdown on the “vulgar Western culture” of canine ownership, Iranian media reported today. One unnamed dog owner in Shahin Shahr in Isfahan province told Iran’s Shahrvand newspaper that officials had shown up suddenly at his house last week. “We were shown a piece of paper indicating they were from the municipal veterinary office. They came in and took away our dogs under the pretext of vaccination,” he said. The owner was told he could recover the dog after its vaccination, but when he...

"Whatever is written on there is gone in 24 hours, so it is impossible to monitor. So girls will say, 'I wish you would die' or 'Go kill yourself,' and then it is gone; there is no proof. They know nothing can be done."

    (CNSNews.com) -- The National Association of Scholars (NAS) has published a study arguing that the College Board’s Advanced Placement European History exam (APEH) “warps and guts the history of Europe to make it serve today’s progressive agenda.” “It [APEH] mentions neither Christopher Columbus nor Winston Churchill,” a NAS press release points out. “APEH’s distortions turn Europe’s extraordinary history and unique contribution to the formation of our world into a generic narrative of modernization,” says NAS director of communications David Randall, who authored the study entitled The Disappearing Continent: A Critique of the Revised Advanced Placement European History Examination. “We do...

That means big donors will have more sway over elected officials to dictate the agenda.

A new report from Every Voice Center finds that individuals living in 1 percent of the nation’s zip codes (equal to...

The political newcomer, who won with 39.1 percent of votes, was trailed by businesswoman Halla Tomasdottir, also without party affiliation, who took 29.4 percent, according to results announced on public television channel RUV. Johannesson only decided to run for the presidency after the so-called Panama Papers leak in April which detailed offshore accounts and implicated several senior Icelandic politicians, including the prime minister who was forced...

Yanofsky wanted immigration statistics about who enters the country from the International Trade Administration, the only government agency that compiles comprehensive records of this kind. The ITA got back to him and said that he was welcome to the data set — all he had to do was cut a check for $173,775. After weeks of paperwork and haggling with the agency, Yanofsky is now...

They’re not hypocrites, unlike the handful of politicians and celebrities who often lead them.

The owner of a Houston, Texas, gun range aimed to add even more to the ranks by offering free classes to members of the LGBT community.

The UNC Chapel Hill guide, published on Thursday, covers a wide range of menacing microaggressions — which are everyday words that radical leftists have decided to be angry or frustrated about.

    Annual pay raises don't work. The salary increase serves two purposes: to motivate workers and to keep employees from leaving for a better-paying job. In its current form, the traditional raise does neither of those things very well. "You can't really do a lot with the annual raise," said Evren Esen, director of survey programs at the Society for Human Resource Management. When the economy is decent, annual pay adjustments come in at 1 percentage point or 2 percentage points ahead of inflation for a given year. That doesn't go far. Employees expect to get at least the cost of...

The tacit acknowledgement of Judaism's roots in the Land of Israel, comes in stark contrast to Palestinian Authority propaganda which has for decades attempted to diminish the Jewish people's ancient history in Israel.

Nor do they have to cite any specific religious belief that forbids them to perform military service. ----------------------------------------------- This radical change was announced a year ago, in...

    A snake this large is a clear and present danger to pets and small children.  While most snakes can be dispatched with a shovel or hoe, I would not want to attempt that with this python.  It might take offense. A firearm is a stand off weapon that allows you to apply deadly force at a distance.  A picture with the article shows the python was shot in the head, killing it quickly and humanely.The snake was a surprise for the teen who discovered it. From kfor.com:“I come outside, and the snake is literally slithering in our yard, and...

    Conservative columnist George Will told PJM he has officially left the Republican Party and urged conservatives not to support presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump even if it leads to a Democratic victory in the 2016 presidential election. Will, who writes for the Washington Post, acknowledged it is a “little too late” for the Republican Party to find a replacement for Trump but had a message for Republican voters. “Make sure he loses. Grit their teeth for four years and win the White House,” Will said during an interview after his speech at a Federalist Society luncheon. Will said he changed...

    Hours after United Kingdom did the unthinkable, voting to leave the European Union in a wave of populist vitriol unfairly directed at immigrants, Vice President Joe Biden took a moment during his visit to Ireland to say what so many Americans were surely thinking. “All this,” he said of globalization, terrorism and mass migration, “provides fertile terrain for reactionary politicians and demagogues peddling xenophobia, nationalism and isolationism. We see it in Europe. We see it in other parts of the world and we see it in my home country, where some politicians find it convenient to scapegoat immigrants instead of...

    HOUSTON - It was a unique offer by the Shiloh Shooting Range in northwest Harris County, just days after the shooting at the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando. Shiloh offered free gun classes to the LGBT community and hundreds of people responded. "We learned gun safety,” said Jared Anthony. “We learned that it's not ... it's a big responsibility.

  • Loretta Lynch: She's a Lover, Not a Fighter

    It is hard to believe that Attorney General Loretta Lynch is actually making her predecessor, Eric Holder, the race bating liberal, look good. It is quite an accomplishment to be worse than Holder, but Lynch has achieved that goal in record time, especially with her lame brained response to the terrorist attack in Orlando. In the early morning hours of the Pulse nightclub attack, Jihadist Omar Mateen made it quite evident in his 911 calls and his maniacal ravings to police negotiators that he killed 49 innocent people as an act of faithfulness to the Islamic State terrorist organization. In...

    It started with the best of intentions. In WWII, Western Europeans couldn't help but be impressed by the sheer numbers of American troops, equipment, and supplies moving through their countries, all under one flag and all speaking one language. After the war, various politicians in Western Europe noted how their continent and the United States - though both were roughly the same population, one had free travel for goods and people while the other didn't - and asked, why can't we do that here? And so the grand EU idea was slowly borne, and envious attempt to copy the US...

    Maine Gov. Paul LePage is challenging the federal government over how to administer the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), commonly known as food stamps. Under the guise of reforming SNAP, Maine’s Republican governor wants to monitor what poor people eat and drink. The governor wants to create a state-based “food-police” to control what Maine’s poorest citizens put in their grocery bags. In pushing for the food ban, the governor is picking a page right out of the Democratic playbook. LePage impugns the motives of the opposition by invoking the Left’s favorite bogeyman – American businesses. The governor said that he...
