    Cuban dictator Fidel Castro reportedly left behind millions in private mansions, yachts, private islands, and even a personal cheese factory. While the Castro family has imposed a mandatory nine-day mourning period over Cuba, questions remain as to who will inherit the head of state’s fortune. While fellow communists and assorted global leftist elites are using the occasion of his death to praise Fidel Castro as a hero of the poor, reports from both defectors within Castro’s world and journalists using publicly available information have estimated the Castro family fortune to be in the millions. The closest realistic number estimating Castro’s net...

Via Conservative Treehouse: According to The Sunday Times Queen Elizabeth is planning to invite President Donald Trump for an official state visit during the summer of 2017. Great Britain has long been the strongest ally to the U.S. provoking causing consternation from the left-wing elements amid both nations. President Obama strained the relationship by criticizing the United Kingdom’s colonial heritage, removing a Winston Churchill bust from the oval office, and giving the Queen the gift of an iPod containing all of his own...

    NEW YORK (AP) -- For the combatants in America's long-running culture wars, the triumph of Donald Trump and congressional Republicans was stunning - sparking elation on one side, deep dismay on the other. Advocates of LGBT rights and abortion rights now fear setbacks instead of further gains. But the outcome emboldened the anti-abortion movement and breathed new life into the religious right's campaign for broad exemptions from same-sex marriage and other laws. Kelly Shackelford, head of First Liberty Institute, a legal group that specializes in religious freedom cases, said that, for his cause, the environment will transform from "brutal" under...

Because on Tuesday night he made his major league debut with the Detroit Tigers, and he had a great game. He did what every minor leaguer hopes to do in their first big league game: he got his very first MLB hit. And that’s not all — he got his first RBI as well. Not just one, but two! It was the bottom of the sixth inning, and the Tigers were tied 3-3 with the...

He and his wife, Ruth, had been steeling themselves for this day since Katie’s first hospitalization more than 11 years ago.

    According the Connecticut Department of Children and Families (DCF), which published an LGBT glossary of more than 250 terms, the belief that there are only two genders — male and female — should be treated as "genderism." The guide, which was published as part of the DCF’s Safe Harbors Project and was last updated July 7, defines "genderism" as: "The system of belief that there are only two genders (men and women) and that gender is inherently tied to one’s sex assigned at birth. It holds cisgender people as superior to transgender people, and punishes or excludes those who don’t...

Kevin Fitzgerald, Track Palin's attorney, said Friday his client had opted into Anchorage Veterans Court — a move Palin had been considering since May — during a Monday proceeding.

    Conservatives are wrong to accuse the liberals of relativism. They are not relativists, but have fanatical attachment to certain ideals, which conservatives often fail to understand. One such ideal is autonomy, which guides their entire sexual agenda. As I argue in “The Obligations of Family Life: A Response to Modern Liberalism,” the Left’s understanding of autonomy does much damage to marriage and family life. Autonomy At first glance, autonomy seems to reflect the traditional American notion that all human beings are created free and equal. For example, everyone believes that marriage begins in the consent of two people and that...

Teenagers of married couples were more confident than those in single-parent families or youngsters whose parents lived together in a stable long-term relationship, it found. Overall, boys with married parents had the highest self-esteem, while girls with cohabiting parents had the lowest. […] The study, from the Marriage Foundation, was based on data from 3,822 children polled in British Household Panel Survey. Harry Benson, research director at the foundation, said: “Conventional wisdom has it that child outcomes depend on parents staying together rather than marital status....

    The Witherspoon Institute - Public Discourse, "A De-Sexed Society is a De-Humanized Society"The transgender movement has never been about “gender.” It’s all about sex. Sex is the real target. “Gender” is merely the politicized linguistic vehicle that facilitates a legal ban on sex distinctions. There aren’t a whole lot of dots to connect to uncover the logic of where this leads: if you abolish sex distinctions in law, you can abolish state recognition of biological family ties, and the state can regulate personal relationships and consolidate power as never before.

    America is an exceptional nation, and there are some things that can only happen in America. An American couple became so gay, that they ended up straight. First, some background. It is often said that, if you become too left-wing, then you are going to end up as a right-winger. The best example is Caucescu of Romania. Romania was a nation that allowed tax-payer funded abortion in 1945, without restrictions. This made the economy and military power of the country weak. Caucescu later criminalized abortion and contraception in the 1960s, and this improved the economy, so far as communist standards...

He sent a letter stating his progressive decree to the nation’s schools Friday morning — threatening schools not just with legislation but with a loss of funding if they fail to comply. The New York Times had an early copy of the letter, from which it excerpted the following, which essentially bans the one-stall bathroom option: “A school may not require transgender...
