    A Democratic congresswoman responded to the allegations against Harvey Weinstein by saying that women also have a responsibility to stop sexual assault and harassment."I grew up in a time when it was as much the woman's responsibility as a man's—how you were dressed, what your behavior was," Texas Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson told Dallas' local NBC5."I'm from the old school that you can have behaviors that appear to be inviting. It can be interpreted as such," Johnson continued. "That's the responsibility, I think, of the female."Interviewer Diana Zoga asked if it was time to stop asking about what women were wearing...

    What is the role of the education system in our children’s lives? It seems that it’s constantly changing. Once upon a time, it involved teaching our children things like reading, writing, math, science, history — typical subjects to prepare them for the real world. Now, liberals are seemingly adding more and more to the curriculum, and not everyone is happy about it. Parents were reportedly furious after learning that the San Diego School Board of Trustees partnered with the Council on American-Islamic Relations, or CAIR, to launch an anti-bullying campaign. The campaign involves educating children about Islam, with the purported...

    Breitbart ^ | 20 Sep 2017 | John Nolte
    In the heat of the 2016 presidential campaign, the leftwing cable news network CNN famously declared that the many sins of former-president Bill Clinton, spouse of then-Democrat frontrunner Hillary Clinton, were off limits. CNN even went so far as to cut the microphone of a guest who brought the former president up. Today, this very same CNN is targeting the wife of Alabama US senate candidate Judge Roy Moore. Some 15 years ago, the Republican Moore founded an organization called The Foundation for Moral Law. Nearly two years ago, on its Facebook page, the organization shared a video that suggested...

    A re-imagining of Steven J. Cannell’s 1981 cult classic The Greatest American Hero is flying back to development with a new creative team, a big new commitment and a big twist. ABC has given a put pilot commitment to the half-hour single-camera project. In it, the unlikely (super)hero at the center — Ralph Kinley (played by William Katt) in the original series — is Meera, an Indian-American woman. The Greatest American Hero comes from Fresh Off the Boat writer-producer Rachna Fruchbom and Nahnatchka Khan’s Fierce Baby. 20th Century Fox TV, where Fierce Baby is based and Fruchbom recently signed an...

    RedState ^ | 09/05/2017 | Brandon Morse
    In an email from Planned Parenthood’s President Cecile Richards, the abortion Goliath lent its voice to the cacophony of outrage over the Trump administration’s rescinding of DACA, and proved they are as oblivious as ever. Richards said in the email that she was “infuriated” and “heartbroken” and that “Planned Parenthood stands with DREAMers, the young people in this community who are the future of this country.” After encouraging her email list to head to a site that brings up the old tried-and-true talking point of Republicans being on the wrong side of history, Richards continues with some head scratching commentary...

    Six participants from various Arab nations and the UK have pulled out of this year’s Pop-Kultur festival due to a small amount of Israeli funding. Is this a legitimate means of protest or an example of anti-Semitism? When the 2017 Pop-Kultur Festival kicks off in Berlin on Wednesday August 23, the lineup will be slighter smaller than originally planned. Four musical acts from various Arab countries as well as one British-based music collaboration and a British-born panel member won’t be showing up — as a way of protesting against event co-sponsor Israel’s treatment of Palestinians and occupation of the West...

    The Washington Times ^ | August 7, 2017 | Bradford Richardson
    A boy whose letter to President Trump made national headlines last month reportedly wanted a pro-Trump cake for his birthday party, but his mother was unable to find a baker willing to fulfill the order. At the July 26 White House press briefing, Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders read a letter from a boy named Dylan who said Mr. Trump was his favorite president. When she later released the letter publicly, the boy’s last name was blacked out. The only identifying clue was that everyone called him “Pickle.” The media scrambled to verify the letter’s authenticity, and the next day,...

    Washington Free Bacon ^ | 07/26/2017 | Elizabeth Harrington
    Major cable news networks have given no coverage to the burgeoning scandal involving IT staffers to former DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, according to a Washington Free Beacon analysis. Reporting by the Daily Caller News Foundation has revealed that Wasserman Schultz's top information technology staffer Iman Awan was arrested Monday after trying to flee the country amidst investigations into Awan concerning banking fraud and a criminal cybersecurity probe. Awan wired over $280,000 to Pakistan after the FBI recently recovered multiple smashed hard drives from Awan's home. Despite being blocked from the House computer network since February amid allegations of "committing...

    .. At a security conference this week, the director of the C.I.A., Mike Pompeo, criticized The New York Times for a recent article about an officer who was tapped to run the agency’s Iran operations, a newsworthy promotion because it was an indication of the hard line against Iran that President Trump promised during his campaign. Mr. Pompeo said that the publication of the official’s name, Michael D’Andrea, was “unconscionable” and put his covert status in jeopardy. Mr. Pompeo’s comments led to a wider discussion about the publication of Mr. D’Andrea’s name, and some readers wrote to us to express...

    Chauntyll Allen wasn’t sure how to feel on Monday when she traveled to Justine Damond’s memorial site in the affluent South Minneapolis neighborhood known as Fulton. The 43-year-old leader of a Black Lives Matter group in St. Paul, Minnesota, stood near Xerxes Avenue and 51st St. by the late Damond’s home, watching the mostly white residents share remarks about police brutality and the need for police reform. Many of those same people, she recalled, were nowhere to be found when Allen and her fellow activists were out marching for justice for black police-shooting victims like Philando Castile and Jamar Clark....

    Sorry for the vanity. But I am fed up with people complaining about Trump and his tweets and Leftists saying Obama endured bad treatment with 'class'. Obama was handled with kid gloves. No Media comment when he 'scratched his nose or cheek' with his middle finger. No Media outrage when he said 'they bring a knife, we bring a gun'.

    The George Soros funded activist organization, Media Matters has targeted Sean Hannity in an attempt to get him booted off of Fox News. Media Matters has posted a list of HannityÂ’s advertisers for liberals to contact, anyone who supports America and the first amendment needs to contact the Hannity advertisers and let them know if they pull their ads, we pull our business. Cars.com, Casper, Crowne Plaza, Leesa Sleep, Peloton, Ring.com and USAA insurance are the only companies that have pulled their ads from his show, but Hannity supporters are letting those companies know that there will be consequences: View...
  • Remember when personal conduct did not affect your job?

    americanthinker.com ^ | 4/24/2017 | Silvio Canto, Jr.
    Back in 1998-99, many Democrats and liberals defended President Clinton. My favorite defense was that President Clinton's private behavior did not affect his job, i.e. “look at your 401-K!” and the unemployment rate was something I heard about on TV back then! I find this interesting because Bill O'Reilly’s alleged personal conduct did not affect his job either. After all, his ratings never dropped. This is why I've grown so skeptical of any public figure accused of sexual harassment, specially when we hear about them on The New York Times. Back in the summer of 1998, when many of us...

It happened when he was out with fellow Senators Audrey Gibson from Jacksonville and Perry Thurston from Fort Lauderdale.

    Liberals have spent decades screaming about the separation of church and ‘state’, but now they’ve made a huge exception for Islam. The San Diego School District will start having school calendars showing Islamic holidays and begin to teach students about Islam in social studies classes and school district will create safe places on campuses for Muslim students as part of a multi-tiered approach to combat ‘Islamophobia’. This plan doesn’t include classes on Christianity, Judaism, or any other religion. The school district conducted a survey to see how much bullying occurred because of student’s Islamic faith and found only seven instances...

    It seems that Jordan A. Maney is not as committed to “diversity” and “love” as she would have us believe. Recently, Ms. Maney, the black owner of a San Antonio event planning business, “All The Days Event Co.,” got a bit upset when she was asked to plan the wedding for a couple whose chosen venue contained the word “plantation.” ... As ATTN also notes, Maney also told the inquiring customer on the receiving end of her discrimination, “You’re having a wedding at a grave-site essentially. How are you going to laugh and celebrate on so many people’s blood, and...
