    The road to total military disaster is being paved by feminists, Obama holdouts and cultural Marxists who have infiltrated the armed forces at the highest levels in the last decade, while warriors have become an endangered species in the Pentagon. The Hour of the Clusterfu*k approaches and yet across the world, the US military marches on, like martinets suffering from cognitive dissonance, not committed to warfighting anymore, but to a much higher calling, diversity. Meanwhile, our enemies our dying with laughter. Our enemies know that the US military in 2018 is a feminized, PC weakling. Our enemies know that as...

    On 23 May 2014, Elliot Rodger, a 22-year-old college dropout, became the world’s most famous ‘incel’ – involuntary celibate. The term can, in theory, be applied to both men and women, but in practice it picks out not sexless men in general, but a certain kind of sexless man: the kind who is convinced he is owed sex, and is enraged by the women who deprive him of it. Rodger stabbed to death his two housemates, Weihan Wang and Cheng Hong, and a friend, George Chen, as they entered his apartment on Seville Road in Isla Vista, California. Three hours...

    A Bay State lawmaker is calling on her colleagues to change the sign to an entrance for the Massachusetts State House named after Joseph Hooker, a Union general in the Civil War, saying his surname is tied up with a slang term for prostitutes and is demeaning to women. “Female staffers don’t use that entrance because the sign is offensive to them,” State Rep. Michelle DuBois, Brockton Democrat, told CBS Boston in a recently aired interview.

    State Rep. Michelle DuBois (D-Plymouth) disagrees. She has been calling for the removal of a statehouse sign that reads "General Hooker Entrance" (so inscribed because it stands opposite a statue of General Hooker), which she described as an affront to "women's dignity."

He said he was collaborating with Trainspotting writer John Hodge for the latest movie based on Ian Fleming's secret agent.

    Director Terry Gilliam is speaking out against the #MeToo movement, saying that in Hollywood, “mob rule takes over; the mob is out there, they are carrying their torches and they are going to burn down Frankenstein’s castle.” In a an interview with AFP on Friday, the filmmaker, a member of the comedy group Monty Python, specifically went after Harvey Weinstein’s alleged victims, and said, “Harvey opened the door for a few people, a night with Harvey — that’s the price you pay.” “It is a world of victims. I think some people did very well out of meeting with Harvey...

    Kellyanne Conway called out Hillary Clinton Thursday for claiming Trump voters were looking "backwards" in 2016 and blamed pressure from men for why white women voted for the president. Conway called out the former secretary of state on "Fox and Friends," asking her to "stop pretending you're a feminist, you’re for equality, you’re for fairness to women, and then running around accusing us of checking with our husbands and our significant others before we vote." Many - including Democrats up for re-election in tough states - have been critical of Clinton's comments made at the India Today Conclave. "She basically...

    Oxford University will ‘feminise’ its philosophy curriculum in order to appeal to more female students and boost writers profiles. The university’s Faculty of Philosophy requested that 40 per cent of the recommended authors on its reading lists are women. Academic staff have also been asked to use writers’ first names when compiling reading lists instead of their initials, in order to highlight those that were written by women.

    Dublin’s Archbishop Diarmuid Martin agrees with former Irish president Mary McAleese’s charge that the Irish are negative towards the Catholic Church because of its treatment of women. McAleese, Ireland’s president from 1997 to 2011, quoted the archbishop in her complaint about women in the Church. Martin said he was “happy” she did so. McAleese, who has long railed against the Church’s moral teachings on homosexuality and abortion and its ban on so-called women “priests,” tore into the hierarchy for its alleged discrimination against women at a Voices of Faith conference in Rome on International Women’s Day. She made headlines before...

    Speaking in Rome on International Women’s Day, former president of Ireland Mary McAleese railed against the Catholic Church for its views on gay marriage and abortion, calling on the Church to eradicate the “toxic virus of misogyny.” A Church that is “homophobic and anti-abortion is not the Church of the future,” McAleese told participants in the conference, which was organized by the Catholic protest group Voices of Faith and hosted at the world headquarters of the Jesuit order in Rome.

    [Transcript] When it comes to the ongoing wave of migrant rape and sexual assault in Europe the people I feel most sorry for are the refugee-friendly Progressive feminists because, when they get raped, they won't even know who to blame without being a racist. What am I saying... of course they will. They'll blame all men as usual while telling everybody else not to generalize. I hadn't intended to talk about this subject again for a while but it’s International Women’s Day so, how can I resist? You may know that a couple of recent videos of mine have been...

Photos from Lynwood, California already show one McDonald’s restaurant with their “M” turned into a “W.”

    Ed Sheeran has been wearing a ring on THAT finger, but it’s not what you think it is. It’s simply a “man-gagement” ring. People noticed the wedding band-style accessory about two weeks ago, and he has since addressed it. “I never saw why men didn’t wear engagement rings,” Sheeran, 27, told British talk show Lorraine. “Cherry made it for me herself out of silver clay,” he said of his new ring, which was handcrafted by his fiancée, Cherry Seaborn. “I really like it.” Nothing’s changed since he proposed: “We didn’t get secretly married, no,” he clarified on Australia’s The Kyle...

    PORTLAND, Ore. -- Video that is getting national attention shows protesters denouncing author and philosopher Christina Hoff Sommers during a speech Monday at Lewis & Clark Law School. “I’ll say the majority of students, liberal and conservative, were shocked and disapproving of these antics but they were helpless,” said Sommers. Sommers says about a dozen students refused to let her get through a speech on closing the feminist mind. “I criticize feminism as a feminist,” said Sommers. The invitation to speak came from students in the Federalist Society chapter at Lewis & Clark. “We thought that her point of view...

    The Broward County Sheriff’s Office has identified to Fox News the captain who, according to sources, directed responding deputies and units to “stage” or form a “perimeter” outside Stoneman Douglas High School, instead of rushing immediately into the building, as the mass shooting unfolded there. Multiple law enforcement and official sources said the commands in the initial moments after Nikolas Cruz allegedly opened fire would go against all training which instructs first responders to “go, go, go” until the shooter is neutralized. As law enforcement arrived, the shooter’s identity and exact location were still unknown. Multiple sources told Fox News...

    General Dick Cavazos used to say that the Army was composed of three types of soldiers: killers, fillers and fodder. Cavazos was a living legend on active duty. An infantry officer and combat veteran of the Korean and Vietnam Wars, he was awarded the Distinguished Service Cross twice for extraordinary heroism in action. “In 1976, Cavazos became the first Hispanic to reach the rank of brigadier general in the U.S. Army.[2] In 1980, he became commander of III Corps — and is recognized for his innovative leadership of the Corps.[10]” “In 1982, Cavazos again made military history by being appointed...
