    A long simmering feud between the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts has broked out into the open with the decision by the Boy Scouts to accept females in their ranks. The controversial decision by the Boy Scouts includes a weak and confusing justification. Sacramento Bee: The Boy Scouts of America announced Wednesday that its board of directors had unanimously approved a decision to begin admitting girls into its Cub Scout program and to develop a program that will allow girls to eventually attain the rank of Eagle Scout for the first time ever. “This decision is true to the BSA’s mission and...

  • Girl Scouts Accuse Boy Scouts of Trying to Steal Away Girl Recruits

    The Girls Scouts of the United States of America is accusing the Boy Scouts of America of a "covert campaign to recruit girls into programs run by the Boy Scouts," according to a letter by the Girl Scouts' president. "We were disappointed in the lack of transparency as we learned that you are surreptitiously testing the appeal of a girls' offering to millennial parents," Girl Scouts President Kathy Hopinkah Hannan wrote in her letter to Boy Scouts President Randall Stephenson. "Furthermore, it is inherently dishonest to claim to be a single-gender organization while simultaneously endeavoring upon a coed model." Top...

    A leaked memo appears to undermine significant details in a new book from a witness to the embassy attacks. But its alleged author tells The Daily Beast he didn't write it. The debate over the Obama administrations actions before and after the attack on the U.S. mission was reignited following an Oct. 27 60 Minutes report featuring an interview with Morgan Jones Controversy over Joness interview and book reached a high pitch on Oct. 31 when The Washington Post published details of an incident report allegedly written by Jones that contradicts the account in his book and reveals his real...

  • US Relied on Firm Using Unarmed Guards for Diplomatic Security in Libya (Used flashlights, batons)

    The State Department's decision to hire Blue Mountain Group to guard the ill-fated U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, entrusted security tasks to a little-known British company instead of the large firms it usually uses in overseas danger zones. The contract was largely based on expediency, U.S. officials have said, since no one knew how long the temporary mission would remain in the Libyan city. The cradle of last year's uprising that ended Muammar Gaddafi's 42-year rule, Benghazi has been plagued by rising violence in recent months. Security practices at the diplomatic compound, where Blue Mountain guards patrolled with flashlights...

    Former president Bill Clinton used taxpayer funds from cash provided to him as an ex-president to pay for employees to set up the familys private email server, according to a new report from Politico. Clinton drew money from the General Services account to pay part of his aide Justin Coopers salary the same person who helped set up a private email server in Clintons home. It goes deeper. Clinton used taxpayer funds to boost the salaries of ten different Clinton loyalists, despite his growing wealth from delivering paid speeches. The funds were also used to purchase equipment for the...

    A small British firm based in south Wales had secured a contract to provide security for American diplomatic facilities in Benghazi despite having only a few months experience in the country. Sources have told the Daily Telegraph that just five unarmed locally hired Libyans were placed on duty at the compound on eight-hour shifts under a deal that fell outside the State Department's global security contracting system. Blue Mountain, the Camarthen firm that won a $387,000 (241,000) one year contract from the US State Department to protect the compound in May, sent just one British employee, recruited from the celebrity...

    It sure is easy to get confused these days. One moment #Resistance against offensive politics and policies is brave. Bold. Daring. The next? That is crazy talk. At least thats the charge leveled when conservatives resist liberal policies, such as when the archbishop of Kansas City, Joseph Naumann, announced last week that the Archdiocese had decided to end its relationship with the Girl Scouts of America. As he put it: To follow Jesus and his Gospel will often require us to be counter-cultural. With the promotion by Girl Scouts USA (GSUSA) of programs and materials reflective of many of the...

    There's a new commandment for Catholics: Thou Shall Not Eat Tagalongs. The Archdiocese of Kansas City recently announced they are severing ties with the Girl Scouts. And that means no more Girl Scout cookies, too. Say goodbye to Thin Mints and Do-Si-Do's. The Washington Post reports that Catholics fear the Girl Scouts programs and materials are reflective of many of the troubling trends in our secular culture, and that the organization is no longer a compatible partner in helping us form young women with the virtues and values of the Gospel.So the Archdiocese is dumping the Girl Scouts (and their...

    The archdiocese covering the Kansas City, Kansas, region and much of the eastern part of the state said Monday it is severing ties with Girl Scouts and urging an end to cookie sales, citing philosophical concerns with the organization. The Archdiocese of Kansas City in Kansas announced in a statement that Girl Scouts is 'no longer a compatible partner in helping us form young women with the virtues and values of the Gospel,' The Kansas City Star reported. The archdiocese said it is switching its support to a 22-year-old, Christian-based scouting program, American Heritage Girls.

    Saying that Girl Scouts is no longer a compatible partner in helping us form young women with the virtues and values of the Gospel, the Archdiocese of Kansas City in Kansas is severing ties with the organization and switching its support to a Christian-based scouting program. I have asked the pastors of the Archdiocese to begin the process of transitioning away from the hosting of parish Girl Scout troops and toward the chartering of American Heritage Girls troops, Archbishop Joseph F. Naumann said in a statement released Monday.

    Heather Leavell, a fourth-generation Girl Scouts troop leader and proud mother of an 8-year-old Brownie, could not sleep the night after she found out the Girl Scouts would be marching in Fridays inaugural parade for President-elect Donald Trump. How, she wondered, could an organization that preaches respect and honesty and that seeks to empower young girls march for a man who has repeatedly demeaned women and bragged about groping their genitals? My blood was boiling, said Leavell, a 43-year-old Melrose resident. My whole life, Ive been very proud to be a Girl Scout. But if they march in this inauguration,...

    A bag used to collect lunar samples during the first manned mission to the moon legally belongs to an Illinois woman who bought it for $995 when it was mistakenly sold during a government auction, a judge ruled Wednesday. Judge J. Thomas Marten, of the U.S. District Court in Wichita, said he doesn't have the authority to reverse the sale of the bag used during the Apollo 11 moon mission in July 1969, even though it shouldn't have gone up for auction. The white bag, which has lunar material embedded in its fabric and which the government considers "a rare...

They claim they have an orientation called Genetic Sexual Attraction (GSA) and want to raise awareness about it. This whole case is about whether I have the right to...

    We should have seen this coming. There is no doubt that this was the next logical step. Once the Gender Dysphoria camel had his/her/its nose inside the tent, we could expect nothing less than the whole camel. Now, as there is a battle over where people can use the restroom heating up, a mainstay in the development of girls has now decided that it would denounce the specialness that is womanhood.

"It made me sad," Stormi told the outlet. "Because I'm a girl." Her mom said Stormi immediately went home and cried. "She was like, 'Why am I not good enough?'"...
