    t’s not nice or politically correct to say, but people do sometimes lie to get money, revenge, power, attention, or political advantage. False allegations of assault have been documented. Adam Mill By Adam Mill SEPTEMBER 25, 2018 I stand athwart the streamroller of sexual misconduct complaints that crush the innocent, end marriages, and destroy careers. In the Me Too era, I am an employment attorney in the politically incorrect vocation of defending who must pay if misconduct is found. My skin is thick, and I do not melt when asked, “How dare you!” I dare because I do not want...
  • NPR won’t even accept a description of Kermit Gosnell as an “abortion doctor”

    Four years in the making, Gosnell: The Trial of America’s Biggest Serial Killer (which will be in theaters October 12) knows all about obstacles and overcoming them. As we have reported many times in the past, the first attempt by co-producers Ann McElhinney and Phelim McAleer to crowdfund via Kickstarter was shot down. However another crowdfunding route raised $2.2 million! And as our readers also know, the husband and wife team had an awful time finding a distributor. But now, at long last, the movie will be shown next month and the story of Kermit Gosnell, the abortionist convicted of...
  • Leaked NPR Emails: Call Kermit Gosnell a “Doctor” Not an “Abortion Doctor”

    NPR described Kermit Gosnell as an “abortion doctor” back in 2013 when a Philadelphia court convicted him of murdering babies. But last month, the taxpayer-funded radio group rejected an ad that used the exact same term to describe Gosnell, claiming it is not “value neutral,” according to The Daily Beast. The makers of the movie “Gosnell: The Trial of America’s Biggest Serial Killer” have been hitting roadblocks since they began their project more than four years ago. Their struggles started when the crowdfunding site Kickstarter refused to allow filmmakers Phelim McAleer and Ann McElhinney to fundraiser there. They later broke...
  • Why The U.S. Ranks At The Bottom In A Foreign Aid Index (According to this freelance writer)

    The United States' commitment to global development does not look good compared with that of other wealthy countries — and it's likely to get worse. According to an annual index released Tuesday by the Center for Global Development that ranks 27 of the world's wealthiest countries, the U.S. scored dead last on foreign aid contributions and quality — despite being the largest donor in dollar amount. That's because in 2017, it allocated a mere 0.18 percent of its gross national income for development assistance. That is well short of the 0.7 percent that wealthy countries have committed to strive for...

    Too PC: If you needed more evidence that taxpayer-subsidized National Public Radio was just another Left-wing propaganda mill for the Democratic Party, this is it. Producers for the upcoming Indy film, “Gosnell: The Trial of America’s Biggest Serial Killer,” wanted to run an advertisement on NPR to promote the picture, which is a dramatic biopic of Dr. Kermit Gosnell, the infamous Philadelphia abortionist who was convicted on multiple counts of murder. But NPR refused the six-figure buy because the ad copy contained the word “abortion."

    God bless the stupidity of the far left. In an effort to prove to America that the Democratic Party is actually the one that knows how to best govern, party leaders and protesters alike turned last week's Supreme Court confirmation hearings into a clown show resulting in fake news , theatrics , and more than 200 'resistance' left-wing protesters being arrested by Capitol police. According to NPR , "At least 227 demonstrators were arrested between the start of the nomination hearings on Tuesday and the end of testimony on Friday, according to the U.S. Capitol Police. Most of those...

My first reaction to the anonymous anti-Trump op-ed in the New York Times was perhaps unusual for a resident of the swamp, which has been so hyper this week: I chuckled, rolled my eyes, and didn’t even make it to the end of the article before losing interest. It probably helps that I spent the week in Colorado and Utah, where seemingly no one...

    ... The Civil Rights Data Collection for 2018 required every public school — more than 96,000 — to answer questions on a wide range of issues. It asked what sounded like a simple question: In the 2015-2016 school year, “Has there been at least one incident at your school that involved a shooting (regardless of whether anyone was hurt)?” The answer — “nearly 240 schools (0.2 percent of all schools)” — was published this spring. The government’s definition included any discharge of a weapon at school-sponsored events or on school buses. Even so, that would be a rate of shootings,...

    The David Horowitz Freedom Center has had their donation processing system blocked by Visa and Mastercard allegedly following a campaign by the Southern Poverty Law Center. The David Horowitz Freedom Center stated in a recent email that its ability to accept donations by credit card has been disabled by both Visa and Mastercard following a campaign by the SPLC to label the Freedom Center as a hate group. This situation comes shortly after Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch was forced off the funding platform Patreon following pressure from Mastercard. The Freedom Center is the next target of the SPLC, and...

    Just days after the massive Mendocino Complex Fire ignited in Northern California, fire officials were getting desperate in their emails to Verizon Wireless. As Santa Clara County firefighters mobilized, they discovered that Internet access had slowed to a crawl on the vehicle they were using to coordinate their response. "Please work with us," Daniel Farrelly, a systems analyst for the Santa Clara Fire Department, entreated the company in an email dated July 30. "All we need is a plan that does not offer throttling or caps of any kind." A few hours later, the Verizon accounts manager suggested they get...

    RUSH: How many are you are aware that Barack Hussein O was in Boston over the weekend and made a private speech, an off-the-record speech? Did you hear about this? MIT’s Sloan Sports Analytics Conference invited Obama to come make a speech, reflections on his presidency and thoughts on other things. And the command went out that Obama’s speech was to be off-the-record, that nobody but nobody was to record it. Nobody but nobody was to report it! Even though they invited journalists in there, nobody was supposed to leak it. Nobody was supposed to say a word about what...

    The Democratic National Committee said it is reviewing allegations against its deputy chair, Rep. Keith Ellison, three days after he was accused of physically and verbally abusing his ex-girlfriend. “These allegations recently came to light and we are reviewing them,” the DNC told NPR in a statement Tuesday evening. “All allegations of domestic abuse are disturbing and should be taken seriously.” **SNIP** Just hours after the DNC said it was reviewing the allegations, Mr. Ellison went on to win the Democratic primary for Minnesota attorney general, easily besting four other challengers Tuesday evening.

    More than 300 news publications across the country are joining together to defend the role of a free press and denounce President Trump's ongoing attacks on the news media in coordinated editorials publishing Thursday, according a tally by The Boston Globe. The project was spearheaded by editorial staff at the Globe, who write, "This relentless assault on the free press has dangerous consequences. We asked editorial boards from around the country – liberal and conservative, large and small – to join us today to address this fundamental threat in their own words." Editorials are typically written by opinion writers and...

    In recent weeks, the Ombudsman's Office received complaints from listeners and readers about a handful of specific words used by the newsroom. These listeners and readers argued that the words have racial histories that made them inappropriate. This is an ongoing concern of NPR audience members: words that are in common usage, but that a growing number of people now understand have racial or ethnic roots that make them offensive to some, at least in some situations. What is NPR's obligation here, when language that may seem innocuous to some, or is being used by people in the news, also...

    NPR ^ | Aug 4 '18 | Scott Simon
    "Enemy of the people" is an incendiary phrase. It's been uttered by some of history's most vicious thugs — Robespierre, Goebbels, Lenin, Stalin, Mao — to vilify their opponents ... who were often murdered. President Trump must know that history by now when he calls the press "the enemy of the people." As he must also know the anti-Semitic and racist history of the America First slogan, by which the president describes many of his policies. But Sarah Sanders, the White House press secretary, pointedly declined the chance this week to say, as Ivanka Tump did, "I do not feel...
