    All statues must go—even ones erected to the president who led the effort to abolish slavery through the 13th Amendment. The president who kept this country together during one of the most turbulent time in our history. He’s our greatest president full stop. And yet, someone decided to vandalize Abraham Lincoln in Chicago (via NBC Chicago): An Abraham Lincoln was damaged and burned in Chicago's Englewood neighborhood late Wednesday, Ald. Ray Lopez said.The statue was found burned near 69th Street and Wolcott, authorities said."What an absolute disgraceful act of vandalism," Lopez wrote on Facebook along with an image of the...

    A woman “slapped” the back of a police car moments before Australian-born bride-to-be Justine Damond was shot to death by a Minnesota cop, according to a new search warrant. The warrant, filed by the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension, which is investigating the fatal shooting, doesn’t explicitly say that woman was Damond, Minnesota Public Radio reported. It says, “Upon police arrival, a female ‘slaps’ the back of the patrol squad … After that, it is unknown to BCA agents what exactly happened, but the female became deceased in the alley.”

    HOUSTON - The starting point was a Facebook post by a group called Texas Antifa. The post alleges the Sam Houston Memorial's so-called demise will begin on June 10. Why remove it? Other posts by the group explain its stance. "Texans agree the disgusting idols of America's dark days of slavery must be removed to bring internal peace to our country." Another post reads: "After we have this one removed, we can then work on getting the 67-foot Sam Houston statue outside of Huntsville turned into parking lot gravel, and the forest renamed." The statue at Hermann Park has stood...

    The parasitic left is at it again. It’s not enough that 20-year-old James Fields of Ohio plowed his car into a group of protesters in Charlottesville at Saturday’s White Nationalist rally killing 32-year-old Heather Heyer. The violence apparently hasn’t escalated enough. More people need to die. This is the message the mainstream media and elected officials are pushing forward as they carry on doing precisely what they’ve been doing for almost two years now. They are agitators. They are escalators of division. Today Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer tweeted that he’d asked the Commission on Public Art to review any items...

Patrons captured cellphone video inside the Chipotle restaurant on North Market Street in the West End area, showing rodents crawling around the floor and one climbing up the wall. Customers claimed the rodents fell from the ceiling. “If we would have been sitting at the table next to that it definitely would have fell on top of our food because it was literally right there,” Daniela Ornelas, of...
  • Atta’s Rage Rooted in Islam’s Misogyny

    In Islam, sex is allowed only in marriage, but even then it is not viewed as an act between two complementary and equal human beings. It is an act concerning only the orgasmic need of the male. Since this need is prioritized, Islam allows the male to marry four wives at a time. The male can also go through serial marriages, since he is allowed to dissolve a marriage unilaterally at any time by simply saying to his wife: "you are repudiated." Thus, a man does not have to invest in one woman. The concept of "the couple" is shattered;...

    In this culture, males sexually penetrating males becomes a manifestation of male power, conferring a status of hyper-masculinity. It is considered to have nothing to do with homosexuality. An unmarried man who has sex with boys is simply doing what men do. As the scholar Bruce Dunne has demonstrated, sex in Islamic societies is not about mutuality between partners, but about the adult male's achievement of pleasure through violent domination. There is silence around this issue. It is the silence that legitimizes sexual violence against women, such as honor crimes and female circumcision. It is also the silence that forces...

    Right now though maybe we should be paying more attention to the alternatives. Maybe our daily lives and, for some of us, careers shouldn’t need to balance on the fickle algorithm changes of the world’s most valuable company. Let’s see what else is out there in the non-Google world. It’s not that scary, I promise. Although you may want to bring a coat. Bing -- Microsoft’s search engine is the second most popular search engine in the world, with 15.8% of the search market.

    Bergdorf Goodman. Tiffany & Company. Louis Vuitton. Fifth Avenue in Manhattan is to shopping what Broadway is to theater, defined by the marquee names that for decades have occupied some of New York City’s most prized real estate. But lately, the avenue’s glittery window displays have been changing more quickly, as retailers have streamed in and out. Tourism has slowed while online shopping has sped up, making it harder for companies to justify the cavernous spaces and sky-high rents along the shopping strip.

    China’s debt surpasses 300 percent of GDP, IIF says, raising doubts over Yellen’s crisis remarks Silvia Amaro Wednesday, 28 Jun 2017 Global debt has hit a record level in the first quarter of this year, mainly driven by emerging markets, raising questions of whether there will be another financial crisis in the near future. Data from the Institute of International Finance showed that global debt reached $217 trillion in the first quarter of this year, or 327 percent of gross domestic product. "The debt burden is not distributed evenly. Some countries/sectors have seen deleveraging while others have built up very...

    Indrek Wichman, a mechanical engineer professor at Michigan State University, has eyed a troubling trend of social justice warriors making their way through the humanities and social sciences and, to his despair, they now have their sights set on leveling their destruction on engineering. WichmanHaving spent 30 years teaching mechanical engineering, Wichman acknowledges things have changed dramatically and is concerned that “feelings” and “micro-aggressions” have taken a predominant role, much to the detriment of the hard sciences. “The world we engineers envisioned as young students is not quite as simple and straightforward as we had wished,” he states in a...

    In a move that’s a slap across the face of every patriotic American, the Southern Methodist University in Texas relocated its annual 9/11 memorial flag display from in front of the campus’ iconic Dallas Hall to a less visible area to avoid exposing the community to “triggering, harmful, or harassing” messages. The memorial is the work of the Young Americans for Freedom (YAF) student group. Since 2015 YAF has organized the 9/11 Never Forget Project, which YAF Chairman Grant Wolf describes as “a memorial of 2,977 American flags in a visually stunning display that represents each of the 2,977 Americans...

    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...

    Princeton University is looking to hire an “Interpersonal Violence Clinician and Men’s Engagement Manager” to develop programming targeting high-risk, campus-based populations for prevention of “interpersonal violence,” such as sexual harassment, sexual assault, domestic/dating violence, and stalking. The new position is designed to work closely with the campus’ Sexual Harassment/Assault Advising, Resources and Education (SHARE) office, which bills itself as a “survivor-centered, trauma-informed confidential resource on campus for the Princeton University community.” As is implicitly evident by the descriptions of these offices, the men’s program puts forth an aggressor based platform, whereas the women’s platform is victim based.

    Imam Ammar Shahin is taking heat for a sermon at the Islamic Center of Davis (ICD) last Friday in which he called on Allah to annihilate Jews and “let us a play a part in this,” and liberate the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Israel from “the filth of the Jews.” The Al-Aqsa Mosque is in East Jerusalem, on a holy site for both Jews and Muslims, and has been riddled with conflict and bloodshed as the war rages on between the two sides. Jewish groups are up in arms and calling on Homeland Security. A Muslim within the community chalked it...

    As I read the headline on the Democrats’ new slogan, “A Better Deal: Better Jobs, Better Wages, Better Future,” I couldn’t help but wonder who would fall for a party with a “lipstick on a pig” mentality. The party is what it is and no amount of PR, marketing or rebranding is going to change who it is and for what it stands. Maybe more importantly, the Democrats can’t market their way out of the sheer contempt many of us feel toward its party. Schumer and Pelosi can talk until they’re blue in the face, and they still are going...

    University professors are not taking kindly to the latest Pew Research poll numbers showing Republican-leaning voters have an unreceptive view of academia, and some are pointing the finger of blame at conservative media. The June 2017 Pew survey showed 58 percent of right-leaning voters reported higher education has a negative impact on the country. Only 36 percent of Republicans polled held a favorable view – a hefty double-digit loss from the 54 percent favorability polled just two years ago.

    A black Trump supporter went ballistic on Democratic Congresswoman Maxine Waters outside her town hall meeting in Gardena, California June 24. A crowd of Trump supporters positioned themselves outside the town hall with Trump signs and a bullhorn, going off on the congresswoman for being a black racist and destroying the black community by giving American jobs to illegals. “Maxine Waters destroyed the black community. Not only in California… she went throughout the United States teaching other corrupt black politicians how to bring down the black community. She destroyed the black community with illegal immigration. I lost my job because...

    A Canadian landlord who was fined $12,000 for wearing shoes in a Muslim tenant's home said he felt "humiliated" by the harsh penalty levied by a national human rights tribunal. In an interview with the Toronto Sun, John Alabi, 52, of Brampton, recounted how he went above and beyond trying to accommodate the Egyptian-born couple who lived in the apartment for two months – just to be slapped with a steep fine for the shoe incident. "I go beyond all that. I just see everybody as human beings like me. That’s why I took them in," Alabi told the Toronto...
