  • Frightening Things You Don't Hear About Gender Dysphoria

    “Those who can make you believe absurdities, can make you commit atrocities.” ~ Voltaire School administrators and board members terrified of expensive lawsuits are capitulating to the demands of gender confused adolescents. Parents are capitulating to the disordered thinking of their children, terrified that if they don’t, their children will commit suicide. Their fears are stoked by a deeply flawed study that is grossly misunderstood. Academia, the arts, and the professional medical and mental health communities are controlled by Leftists who affirm the nonsensical “trans” ideology. And the mainstream press—not known for deep thinking—swallows and regurgitates any Leftist nonsense that...
  • NRA-Republican Backed Bill Makes it Easier for Feds to Disarm Citizens

    On Wednesday, the Republican controlled house voted to further federalize gun laws in this country. While Ryan McMaken has noted the danger in further centralizing gun legislation, there is another deeply troubling aspect to this bill: it expands the ability of the Federal government to restrict Americans’ right to bear arms. During the legislative process, the NRA supported merging the bill aimed at nationalizing concealed carry permits with another piece of legislation aimed at “fixing” the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS.) Obviously this legislation was inspired by the failure of the US Air Force to report the criminal...

    More women are speaking out against boorishness and much worse that they claim to have experienced from prominent politically active men, encouraged by the courage of others, and by the contrition expected of their accused tormentors. A decision appears to have been made at the top levels of the Democratic Party that the sacrifice of the careers of their own pawns on the political chessboard is worthwhile in the quest to unseat a sitting POTUS. So, the longest-serving member of the House of Representatives, John Conyers, only partially functional owing to advanced age, is stepping down from his safe seat...

    At least seven Democratic women in the U.S. Senate are calling on Sen. Al Franken of Minnesota to resign after the latest allegation of sexual misconduct was published Wednesday morning. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand of New York, Sen. Claire McCaskill of Missouri, Sen. Mazie Hironoā€¸ of Hawaii, Sen. Maggie Hassanā€¸ of New Hampshire, Sen. Patty Murray of Washington, Sen.

    The BBC ^ | 5 December 2017 | Jon Sopel
    This president has played a lot of golf since he won the election. He seems to do a lot of his business on the lush Trump properties - senators are invited to come and play a round while he can bend their ear to back this or that cause. The way the president does business is not always pretty. There seems to be unnecessary noise and more collateral damage than there needs to be. But who cares that you shanked the ball off the 3rd or hit the ball into the trees on the 5th and found the water on...

    Biblical scholars have discovered the first-known original Greek copy of an ancient forbidden Christian text that purportedly describes Jesus’ secret teachings to his “brother” James, an early leader of the Church. Geoffrey Smith and Brent Landau, religious studies scholars at The University of Texas at Austin, located the rare text in Oxford University archives earlier this year. The experts found several fifth- or sixth-century A.D. Greek fragments of the First Apocalypse of James, one of the books from an ancient collection known as the Nag Hammadi library. Previously, the text was thought to be preserved only via translations in the...

    ‘We have an obligation to redistribute’ The holiday season is upon us, and leave it to an Ivy Leaguer to play the role of the proverbial stick in the mud. Writing in the Yale Daily News, guest columnist Xuan (who uses the pronouns “they” and “them”) invokes the United States’ “legacy of colonialism, exploitation, slavery and genocide” to argue that Americans’ personal charity isn’t “quite enough” nor “all of morality.” They offer examples of a shady used car salesman and a sketchy entrepreneur who, after screwing over people in the past attempt to make good later in life through charitable...

    [The new nationalisms] all are manifestations of what is commonly called the identity crisis of the West, but might better be termed the West’s struggle with the sacred. By “sacred”, I mean that which endures beyond our lifetime and beyond the lifetime of our children, the enduring characteristics that make us unique and will continue to distinguish us from the other peoples of the world, and which cannot be violated without destroying our sense of who we are. The sacred is what a country’s soldiers are willing to die to protect; unless there is something for which we are willing...

    Steve Schmidt has finally found his natural home: Joy Reid’s MSNBC show. Appearing there this morning, Schmidt first described President Trump as someone who “degrades his office, who divides the American people.” Schmidt then said: “I think there is one question on the ballot in November of 2018. And it’s: do you want to put a check on President Donald Trump? And I think the answer to that question, in the overwhelming majority of the American people is ‘yes.'” Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    The Daily Signal ^ | November 30, 2017 | Doug Badger
    Senate Democrats who fret over the distributional effects of tax cuts should thank their GOP colleagues for giving them the chance this week to vote on repealing one of the most regressive taxes: the Obamacare tax on the uninsured. This tax disproportionately falls on those with incomes less than $50,000, while exempting many households earning six-figure salaries. Many who qualify for subsidies will have to choose between paying the tax and buying policies that offer shabby coverage with onerous deductibles that could stick them with big medical bills. This wasn’t the way the so-called individual mandate was supposed to work....

The first explained how pederasty (man/boy sex) is central to “gay” male culture. The second examined how a conspiracy of political leftists in media, academia and government allowed the truth to remain suppressed for so long. This article will expose how these same conspirators are even now orchestrating a new cover-up. It will also explain how “gay” recruitment of children through “grooming”” is not only common in the “gay”...

    An op-ed in a Texas State University student newspaper Tuesday has sparked controversy for its blatant anti-white racism, according to the Washington Examiner. In "Your DNA is an Abomination," which seems to have been pulled from the pages of the University Star, philosophy student and self-proclaimed Marxist atheist Rudy Martinez begins by declaring that of all the white people he has ever encountered, "there is perhaps only a dozen I would consider 'decent.'" He went on to blather that "whiteness in the United States" is a "construct used to perpetuate a system of racist power" and that whites benefit from...

    A director of travel firm TUI who was ordered to pay his ex-wife huge maintenance payments for life by a divorce court is now battling to force her back to work. Multi-millionaire accountant William Waggott, 54, was ordered to give his ex-wife Kim Waggott £9million in cash and assets after they split in 2012. The money allowed her to buy a £2million home in Cheshire - which was the house where former Wales manager Gary Speed took his own life - and a holiday villa in Mallorca and she also gets £175,000-a-year personal maintenance for life.

    Lightning Can Produce Carbon-14 November 29, 2017 | David F. Coppedge In a surprise announcement, Japanese researchers found that lightning bolts can be powerful enough to cause nuclear fission, leading to new isotopes— including carbon-14. For decades, we have been told that carbon-14 is generated only by high-energy cosmic rays striking the atmosphere, hitting nitrogen atoms. Carbon-14 (14C) is one of the leading dating methods for organic remains up to a maximum of 100,000 years. Now, researches from the Kyoto University watched lightning bolts generate gamma rays and positrons, indicating that nuclear fission was occurring. One of the products, they...

    The avalanche of sexual harassment claims, with new ones pouring forth daily, leads me to the wisdom of George Washington's observation in his farewell address in 1796: "Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. ... And let us with caution indulge the supposition that morality can be managed without religion." You may say, "There you go again, Star. Waving your Bible." But is there a better answer for dealing with this problem? Society, all human life, is guided by rules. The only question before us is: What are the rules...
