    Sioux Falls Police arrested an apparent antifa radical on Tuesday after finding a "concerning" number of illegal firearms and bomb-making materials in his apartment while serving a search warrant in connection with three area burglaries. Police also found antifa-related items during their search, including an antifa jacket and an anti-police manifesto. Authorities reportedly evacuated the surrounding area and called the Sioux Falls Police bomb squad.
  • 7 Reasons Why the Transgender Revolution Will Fail

    I earnestly hope and pray that every child and adult struggling with gender identity issues will find wholeness, peace, and happiness from the inside out. I earnestly hope and pray that we will live to see the day when every person who feels trapped inside the wrong body will find internal resolution without hormones and radical surgery. At the same time, I wholeheartedly oppose the transgender revolution and predict that, ultimately, it will fail. Here’s why. 1) The transgender revolution is oppressive. As reported on July 16 on Lifesite News, “Failing to refer to a gender-confused student, professor, or staffer...

    The journalistic hounds at CNN have a new target, a politician whose sin is so egregious – so unthinkable – that it can hardly be spoken aloud: the recently elected congressman from Minnesota disagrees with CNN orthodoxy on race. And now, with enthusiasm we have not seen since hordes of reporters descended on Rick Perry's boyhood hunting grounds where they found a 30-year-old racial expletive written under a rock, CNN has set out to punish Congressman Jason Lewis. The sins of the congressman were easy to ferret out. They came during a stint as a talk show host in Minneapolis...

    Plumbing the cesspool of the hard-left mind. To suffer through Roy Scranton’s New York Times oped, “Raising My Child in a Doomed World,” is to come away wondering how a guy so hang-dog depressing and lacking in discernable masculine qualities managed to attract a woman -- sorry, a “partner” in Scranton-speak -- at all, let alone got her to procreate with him. He tells us the day his daughter was born he cried looking out the hospital window with her “at the rows of cars in the hospital parking lot, the strip mall across the street, the box stores and...

    Well, Vox Media has some news for us, guys. Donald Trump won the 2016 election because he clinched the 270 votes needed in Electoral College, despite winning the popular vote. Or how did they put it, “Trump only won the presidential election in 2016 because of the Electoral College.”

    A University of Texas-Austin student was forced to reflect on a film about toxic masculinity after a Title IX investigation found him guilty of harassment based on a non-criminal standard of evidence. According to an internal letter obtained by Campus Reform, following an appeal of his sanctions, the student received a note from UT president Gregory Fenves stating that “nothing you allege, even if true, would change the ultimate outcome of this matter.” The student – who requested anonymity – graduated in Spring with a JD. During his time in law school, a female student filed six Title IX complaints...

    North Dakota has filed a claim against the federal government for $38 million the state spent dealing with the months-long Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) protests. The state claims the often violent protests were the result of negligence by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The Corps failed to enforce the law and keep protesters from setting up illegal campsites on federal land, the state argues.

    Keynote Speech at Biology Conference Falsifies Major Claim of Darwinism July 19, 2018 by Sal Cordova Hailed as “the greatest biologist since Darwin,” Ronald Fisher is credited as author of “biology’s central theorem” what is known as Fisher’s Fundamental Theorem of Natural Selection.[i] An informally stated corollary of Fisher’s theorem is that a population will continually increase in fitness. However, for decades it has been noted that many populations are declining in fitness. Geneticists such as Michael Lynch[ii], Alexey Kondrashov[iii], Bryan Sykes[iv], and many others have been warning the human genome is crumbling and the damage is likely irreversible. Thus,...

    PJ Media ^ | 07/20/2018 | Jim Treacher
    Back in Maoist China, one of the communists' favorite tactics to keep people under control was to hold events known as "struggle sessions." When someone was caught dissenting from the party line or otherwise pissing off the wrong people, he or she was dragged to a public place and shamed by an angry mob. There was often an element of physical torture, but the main weapon was psychological. The target would be berated and insulted and humiliated for hours on end. Even the most self-assured dissenter could be broken down and made to repent, given enough public pressure. Shaming people...

    For Democrats and their flunkies, history is all bunk unless it is self-serving. The reason history is bunk to the Democrats is because history is a ledger of their perennial infatuation with monsters of the left – Lenin, Stalin, Mao, Ho, Fidel – including Putin, until it serves their interest to turn on a dime, as opportunists do, against those whom they were peddling a moment ago as friends and allies. Take Putin, for instance, when Obama and Hillary were signaling "reset" with Moscow, and Obama whispering to then-Russian president Dmitri Medvedev in 2012 while the mic was hot to...

    In 1995, a remarkable 9-0 ruling was handed down by the U.S. Supreme Court. A Catholic veterans' group, organizers of the annual St. Patrick's Day Parade in South Boston, were vindicated in their refusal to allow a homosexual activist group to march in their parade. The Court confirmed that the South Boston Allied War Veterans Council was protected by the First Amendment and could reject a group if it "impart[ed] a message that the [parade] organizers do not wish to convey." Twenty-three years later, orthodox Boston Irish Catholics will no longer have the prominent public voice on St. Patrick's Day....

    metallicman ^ | June 2018 | editorial staff
    One of the things that I have come to appreciate the most was the family meal that we had when I was growing up as a child. During my early childhood we would hold formal “sit down” meals in the Dining Room. Us children each had our own roles / chores in regards to this. On Sunday we would have the largest and most elaborate meals. Mealtime was the opportunity when we could all talk about our day, our hopes and dreams, and things that interested us. At the time, I didn’t realize how important it was. Then, during the...

    And so another notch is marked on the belt of political correctness. This time, it's Papa John himself. John Schnatter has been excommunicated from the company he began in the broom closet of his father's tavern. Since 1984, Papa John's Pizza has become one of the most successful chains in America, with almost 5,000 locations and providing jobs to countless individuals from all facets of society. Schnatter lost it all this week, including his name on a football stadium and a business school. His offense? Referring to irrevocable history about the founder of a competing franchise during a conference call,...

    “High-harm” violent offences involving weapons are soaring in England and Wales, as a crime wave continues, with knife and gun crime, as well as homicide, shooting up. Meanwhile, police also recorded 31 percent more rapes, up to 53,977, and 21 percent more other sexual offences, rising to 96,755. The revelations, from the latest official figures published by the Office for National Statistics (ONS), show offences involving knives or sharp instruments rising by 16 percent to 40,147 – the fourth consecutive increase in knife attacks revealed by the ONS

    The radical wing of the Democrats is doing its best to convince the mainstream of the American electorate that the party is too far detached from reality to be trusted with power. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, embraced by the Party’s chair Tom Perez as “the future of our party,” already has provided such convincing evidence of being an ignoramus (unemployment is low because so many people have two jobs) that poor Joe Lieberman is encouraging voters to vote for the opponent she defeated in the primary, who remains on the ballot on a splinter party ticket. Now comes the party’s vice chair,...

    The History Channel’s fictional drama Six provides a darker, more nuanced look into the personal and professional lives of SEAL Team Six operators. Although the show clearly displays the SEALs expertly using weapons in the field, there seems to be one place the show won’t accept them: in the home. In the dangerous world the show paints for us, the fact that they don’t want homeowners armed is even scarier. After former SEAL Team leader Rip was murdered by a terrorist on American soil in the season 2 premiere, Jackie (Nadine Velazquez) fears that her their family could be targeted...

    ​Democrat giant-slayer and soon-to-be Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez came close to saying she supports abolishing the free enterprise system and the precious economic freedoms on which it is based that have made America wealthy beyond its founders’ wildest dreams. The so-called democratic socialist Ocasio-Cortez whom DNC Chairman Tom Perez hails as “the future of our party,” breezily dismissed the current strength of the U.S. economy, claiming unemployment is low only because Americans are working two jobs.  Capitalism is a fleeting phenomenon, she told PBS in an astounding display of historical ignorance that would no doubt endear her to anti-American conspiracy...

    According to a Jordanian columnist, Jewish powers aren't just limited to weather control; Jews can also cause earthquakes! Kamal Zakarneh, a columnist for the Jordanian daily Al-Dustour, accused Israelis of causing the earthquakes that shook the Al-Aqsa mosque in the attempt "to Judaize Jerusalem." He went on to explain that Jews are known for "blaming nature" for natural disasters. He's not wrong to fear earthquakery. That mosque was destroyed by an earthquake in 746 and had to be rebuilt in 754. And Jews were around in 746. Soooooo we know who did it. A minor flaw in his logic is...

    July 18, 2018 The owners of a Pennsylvania farm have been ordered by the Sewickley Heights Borough to cease and desist holding Bible studies on their private property. Borough leaders accused Scott and Terri Fetterolf of improperly using their 35-acre farm as a place of worship, a place of assembly and as a commercial venue. They were served a cease-and-desist order in October 2017, the Post-Gazette reported.
