    As Cortney wrote on Thursday, Harvard was embroiled in controversy, as the institution decided to extend a visiting fellowship invitation to convicted felon Chelsea Manning. Manning, who served in Army Intelligence, is responsible for leaking hundreds of thousands of classified materials on the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. Upon Manning’s conviction, she was sentenced to 35 years in prison of which she served seven years before President Barack Obama commuted the sentence. The invitation led to the resignation of former CIA Director Michael Morell as a senior fellow. Current CIA Director Mike Pompeo also canceled an event in light of this...

    Hillary Clinton, in her campaign post-mortem released Tuesday, tore into women who didn't vote for her failed presidential candidacy in November and regretted it, saying "these people were looking for absolution that I just couldn't give." Clinton's book, What Happened, is an angry account of how she lost to President Trump in November. Among the multitude of people/countries/events she blames for her defeat are young women who didn't vote for her.

    Piers Morgan clashed with sacked L'Oreal transgender model Munroe Bergdorf on Good Morning Britain over her statement that 'all white people are racist'. Morgan marked his return to the show with a fiery interview opposite Bergdorf, who made the headlines last week after she was fired by L'Oreal Paris for a lengthy Facebook rant. During the post she fumed: 'Honestly I don't have energy to talk about the racial violence of white people any more. Yes ALL white people.' Morgan took the model to task over the comments and said they were 'deeply offensive' and a 'load of rubbish'. Bergdorf...

    With a dizzying fanfare, she was brought in as the 'face of modern diversity'. In a lengthy Facebook rant, she wrote: 'Honestly I don't have energy to talk about the racial violence of white people any more. Yes ALL white people. 'Because most of ya'll don't even realise or refuse to acknowledge that your existence, privilege and success as a race is built on the backs, blood and death of people of colour. Your entire existence is drenched in racism. From micro-aggressions to terrorism, you guys built the blueprint for this s***.

Most are pretty good at hiding it, having been taught to do so since childhood...Case in point: period jokes. How many times have you heard people dismiss and belittle a woman who dares to express emotion by telling her she’s probably menstruating? How many times have men in power —...

    Yet since 2010, the two largest police agencies, the City of Miami and Miami-Dade County police, have handled 71,628 mental health-related calls—and have made only 138 arrests. Miami-Dade taxpayers were on the hook for millions of dollars from wrongful-death lawsuits; today, fatal shootings are down almost 90 percent. More than 20 percent of those in county jails had serious mental illnesses, costing many millions to keep them there. Recently, the decline in arrests and incarcerations enabled the county to close a jail and save taxpayers $12 million a year.

    Personally, I've never been very impressed by the, "He's mentally" excuse. It's fairly consistently trotted out as a defense for ISIS terrorists who go on rampages in Europe. The French authorities have already announced that the driver who rammed his car into a pizzeria killing a little girl is not a terrorist, but suffers from mental illness. It's unknown as of this moment if he's Muslim, but a number of past Muslim terrorists have had a history of mental illness. But the media left is fairly selective in taking that into account.

    TEXAS -- One of the most eloquent opponents of Texas' proposed gender bathroom law began identifying as a girl four years ago, when she was 3. It was at that age that Frank and Rachel Gonzales started to realize their child, Libby, wasn't living the life she was born to live. It wasn't always clear to them how best to support their first born. While on a family trip to California, Rachel took Libby -- then still called by her birth name -- to the toy store. It was there that things "came to a boil." "I said, 'You can...

    The leech man: Lawyer hopes nightly blood-sucking treatment will help return his sight after his 'schizophrenic son blinded him'A lawyer is hoping that a nightly blood-sucking leech treatment will help return his eyesight after his schizophrenic son allegedly blinded him in a blitz attack. John Dunlap, 80, is placing his trust in an experimental treatment that requires him to attach several leeches around his eyes so that one day he might see again. The lawyer from Memphis started the bizarre therapy after his bipolar and schizophrenic son Andrew, 41, allegedly attacked Dunlap and blinded him in 2015. With the help...

    A retired Navy SEAL Team 6 hero who is transgender had a message for President Donald Trump after he announced the US military would bar transgender people from serving. "Let's meet face to face and you tell me I'm not worthy," Kristin Beck, a 20-year veteran of the Navy SEALs, told Business Insider on Wednesday. "Transgender doesn't matter. Do your service." Beck said Trump's abrupt change in policy could negatively affect many currently or wanting to serve in the military. The RAND Corporation estimated in 2016 that there were between 1,320 and 6,630 transgender people serving. Many of them just...

    When he cut off his right arm with a “very sharp power tool,” a man who now calls himself One Hand Jason let everyone believe it was an accident. But he had for months tried different means of cutting and crushing the limb that never quite felt like his own, training himself on first aid so he wouldn’t bleed to death, even practicing on animal parts sourced from a butcher. “My goal was to get the job done with no hope of reconstruction or re-attachment, and I wanted some method that I could actually bring myself to do,” he told...

    Breitbart:  Trump Defense Department Delays Obama’s Transgender Push in the Military.  “The Pentagon is working to delay the July 1 deadline to fully implement the Obama-initiated policy that one year ago lifted the ban on transgender individuals serving in the U.S. military.”  While the Pentagon directive to allow transgender men and women to join the military faces an indefinite delay this may be a good time to review just how America was ensnared with this Obama-era policy. The evidence is clear—the American Left succeeded in lobbying the American Psychiatric Association (APA) to eliminate some of the sexual identity disorders...
