  • Lawyer Argues Female Genital Mutilation Is An Islamic Religious Right

    Geller Report ^ | 5/23/17 | Pamela Geller
    The lawyers for the Michigan FGM doctors charged with performing the barbaric procedures on young Muslim girls are saying these Muslim doctors are not guilty and are being persecuted because of their religion. Under Islamic law (sharia), they are not guilty. Under Western law, they are monsters. One of the girls told FBI investigators that she screamed out in pain during the procedure, while another young girl said she couldn’t walk for a few days after having her clitoris mutilated. The doctors claimed they didn’t cut the clitorises, but nicked them instead. It’s a distinction without difference. Perhaps they are...

    Priorities. I doubt they’ve lost interest in impeaching Trump, but I guess it says something about the American left that they can make other demands driven by pure ideology without any regard for the merit of the idea itself. The left - at least those who know what football is - has become convinced thaat Colin Kaepernick is being “blackballed” by all 32 NFL teams because he refused to stand for the national anthem last year. This has become such an article of faith that they are now getting ready to hold rallies in 15 different cities demanding that someone...

    town into homeless magnet By Joseph J. Kolb Published May 17, 2017 Fox News NOW PLAYING New poll shows shift on marijuana legalization From his sidewalk vantage point in front of an outdoor equipment store in downtown Durango, Colo., Matthew Marinseck has seen a transformation in this mountain resort town. The picturesque town near the New Mexico border, once a vibrant, upscale community dotted with luxury hotels, is being overrun by panhandlers – thanks, in part, to the legalization of marijuana. The town suddenly became a haven for recreational pot users, drawing in transients, panhandlers and a large number of...

    If self-delusion were magic, average liberals would be David Blaine, David Copperfield and Houdini all rolled up into one. Most of what they say has no relation to what they’re doing, the policies they push rarely work and logic might as well be a strange, alien language to them. Since that’s the case, explaining all the things liberals get wrong about themselves could easily be the topic of my second book (Here’s a link to my first one), but since we only have so much space to work with in a column, here are the top five.1) Liberals Are Better...
  • Alan Dershowitz: I Don’t See Any Evidence of Collusion – Even if There Was, Not a Crime (VIDEO)

    The Gateway Pundit ^ | 5/18/2017 | Jim Hoft
    Prominent American lawyer and author Alan Dershowitz, a Democrat, told Elizabeth MacDonald on FOX Business Network that he had seen no evidence of collusion between Donald Trump and Russia and even if there was evidence it wasn’t a crime. Alan Dershowitz: Well first of all I don’t see any evidence of collusion, and second even if there was major collusion, that’s not a crime. Even hypothetically if the administration or the candidate got together with the Russians and said, “Please help me become president. Do whatever you can to help me.” That wouldn’t be a crime… The most serious condemnations...

    The Deep State, the mysterious cabal consisting of intelligence personnel, sundry government officials, high-ranking military officers and politicians is not something out of a Robert Ludlum novel; but most distressingly, a living, breathing, monstrously evil entity out for blood. The Deep State, a body of traitors, to America, to the American people, to American history is determined to assassinate Donald Trump, as they did to a young President in 1963. But, this time the murder of the President won’t be done by triangulated 7.62mm fire. This time the Deep State weapons of war are not rifles and bullets, but a...

    ESPN made headlines recently for their latest round of layoffs, jettisoning approximately 100 employees, including dozens of well-known on-air personalities. In the immediate aftermath, accusations flew about why the self-proclaimed "Worldwide Leader in Sports" had to lay off employees. Many blame ESPN's perceived "liberal bias," pushing conservative-minded viewers away and for too often dipping its toes into "politics" (i.e. topics that some people are uncomfortable discussing but that may or may not actually have any direct ties to real politics). Those accusations were raised again against ESPN Radio's "The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz" when they interviewed comedian...

    Two California women have choreographed an anti-Trump aerobics class. “Resistance takes endurance,” says artist Liat Berdugo. “And aerobics is also something that builds your endurance.” Berdugo and her partner Margaret McCarthy were recently profiled in a video by Fusion. “We’re looking to, like, really, really physicalize this current moment in the political climate and to respond to it, to react to it, to embody it, to make fun of it,” explains Berdugo. Their routine includes moves to chants “F* Mar-a-Lago”, “Don’t buy Ivanka shoes!”, and “I believe in science!” Each move involves a red tie as an aerobics prop. Other...
  • Proof That Liberals Are Stupid

    I rarely use the word stupid. Most frequently the word I use is ignorant which means lacking knowledge or awareness. Stupid means something significantly different. Stupidity means lacking intelligence, understanding, reason, wit and/or good sense. Republicans have often referred to liberals as just plain wrong though some invoked stupidity in a knee-jerk manner. If you doubted that liberals are stupid, we now have proof. The proof comes from the high priests of the Left – the editorial board of The New York Times. What set them off and displayed their complete lack of intelligence and good sense was their editorial...

    The Coach's Team ^ | 5/14/17 | Tom Ciccotta
    by Tom Ciccotta An assistant professor at California State Polytechnic University argues in a recent academic research paper that eastern fox squirrels are subjected to a “gendered, racialized, and speciesist” form of media bias. Teresa Lloro-Bidart, an associate professor of liberal studies at Cal Poly, argues in a recently published postmodernist research paper that eastern fox squirrels are on the receiving end of racially-charged media bias. Lloro-Bidart claims that she worked towards such a conclusion by analyzing the coverage of eastern fox squirrels through “feminist posthumanist,” and “feminist food studies” lenses. Lloro-Bidart contends that eastern fox squirrels, which is the...

    Across the country, loud and sometime violent campus protesters are often met by administrators who ultimately give in to demands related to perceived slights on issues ranging from race to gender and sexuality to alleged hate speech. But one college president is fighting back, and he says the pursuit of truth – not unanimous political ideology – ought to be the goal of higher education. Oklahoma Wesleyan University President Everett Piper burst on to the scene in late 2015 when he wrote an open letter to his students and famously explained their campus was not a day care but a...

    Two men who got into a heated confrontation during a North Dakota town hall for Republican Rep. Kevin Cramer had to be escorted from the event Thursday afternoon. Mr. Cramer faced a hostile crowd in Mandan during a question-and-answer session largely focused on his support for the American Health Care Act. Video from the event showed one man, identified by The Bismarck Tribune as Hazen resident Mike Quinn, angrily approaching Mr. Cramer and trying to shove a wad of bills into the congressman’s shirt collar. “If the health care is destroyed, do the rich get a tax break? Yes or...

    DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Students booed, and many turned their backs on Education Secretary Betsy DeVos as she gave the keynote address at Bethune-Cookman University’s commencement Wednesday afternoon. Many students and alumni had objected to having DeVos as speaker in part because they said the outreach by President Trump and the education secretary to historically black schools is an empty gesture. But the president of the university defended her work as a philanthropist and her commitment to education. Graduates came into the auditorium smiling, many with flowers and other decorations plastered on their mortar boards, and listened to the ceremony...

    And what's coming next. The persistence movement toward prosperity is alive and well! You would not know it from all the media noise about the firing of FBI Director James Comey. Some Republicans and some Democrats applaud the move, and some find it despicable. But no one has noticed how President Trump made the move. Namely, he didn’t tell anybody inside the FBI ahead of time.

    As Fox News Sidles Left, Sinclair Broadcasting Moves In Broadcasters you likely never heard of are possibly attempting to move in on Fox News and take some of their conservative viewership. Fox News has potential competition from another right-leaning media network. Sinclair Broadcasting is buying up 42 of Tribune Media’s broadcast stations for nearly $4 billion dollars, raising speculation that the conglomerate is prepared to compete with Fox News for their Republican and Libertarian audience. With Tribune’s 42 TV stations, Sinclair will cover more than 70 percent of households in the United States. It will become the largest local broadcast...

    President Trump may not be running for California insurance commissioner but that doesn’t mean he won’t be a political target in the campaign. State Sen. Ricardo Lara (D-Bell Gardens) devoted his first online ad in the 2018 race to depicting Trump as anti-immigrant, anti-woman, anti-healthcare and a climate change denier. Lara urged voters to support his campaign for insurance commissioner so he can protect California from Trump’s reach. “His hate has only made me more determined to empower Californians to control their own lives,” Lara proclaims in the ad, which was released on Monday.

    In homes in Montclair and across North Jersey, residents are breaking bread with Syrian refugees, sharing food and conversation. These dinners, aimed at fostering understanding and communication, are being organized by the Syria Supper Club, a group firmly rooted in the township. NJ 11th For Change, an organization founded by Montclair residents, continues to host protests at the New Jersey offices of Rep. Rodney Frelinghuysen, R-11, pressuring him to hold town hall meetings. Houses of worship, residents and some shops in the township have put up signs with the same message — “No matter where you are from, we’re glad...

    Oregon’s Democratic lawmakers came up with the most detailed plan yet on Thursday for fixing the state’s wobbly budget by tapping business coffers. House Speaker Tina Kotek would place a 0.95 percent tax on annual business sales in excess of $5 million. About 5,000 businesses would pay the new tax. The Democrats’ gross receipts tax proposal would replace the existing corporate income tax, which produces about $1 billion in revenues a year. The new tax would take effect Jan. 1, 2018. Businesses with sales under the $5 million threshold would pay a flat $250 annual filing fee. Businesses with less...

    Every week in America brings another spate of defeats for freedom of speech. This past week it was Ann Coulter's turn (yet again) to be banned from speaking at Berkeley for what the university authorities purport to be "health and safety" reasons -- meaning the health and safety of the speaker. Each time this happens, there are similar responses. Those who broadly agree with the views of the speaker complain about the loss of one of the fundamental rights which the Founding Fathers bestowed on the American people. Those who may be on the same political side but find the...
