  • My Bathroom, My Choice: (or Where Should I Piss, Cis?)

    Here in Charlotte, UNCC has adopted a new policy about going to the bathroom. As NBC Charlotte reports: ... the University of North Carolina-Charlotte campus now allows transgender students, faculty and staff to use the restroom of their choice. This is a distinct policy change that was quietly slipped in under the radar. Previously, persons who are transgender had the option of using one of several gender neutral bathrooms on campus, or the bathroom designated for their physical birth gender. (Otherwise known as "their gender.") "It's like kind of weird to see a dude go in a girl's bathroom...
  • Is the Looming Arab war -- Precursor to the Islamic Caliphate?

    The first 6 Arab nations to form the Arab League are: Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, Syria and Saudi Arabia. Iraq, Lebanon, and Syria are no more. Egypt was almost lost, and is well into it's recovery from intensive care thanks largely to Abdel Fattah El-Sisi, who might become the most accomplished of Arab Leaders, if he holds true. I believe El-Sisi was the impetus of the Arab League getting it's act together with coordinated political, diplomatic and military efforts to keep Iran off the Sinai Peninsula. Is their any doubt now why any sane person would deny a nuclear armed...

    Coach is Right ^ | March 28, 2015 | Jim Emerson, staff writer
    The Army has charged Bowe Bergdahl with desertion and has referred to an Article 32 military preliminary hearing which is the military version of a grand jury. Their job is to determine whether the charges against Bergdahl are sufficient for a court-martial trial or whether they should be dropped altogether. The court proceedings will be held at joint base San Antonio-Fort Sam Houston, Texas. The charges filed against Bergdahl under The Uniform Code of Military Justice are articles 85 and 99. Article 85 – Desertion Any member of the armed forces who, without authority, goes or remains absent from his...

    Dear Editor: Christian conservatives now have a candidate for president who they can fully support. They have a candidate who is not afraid of being controversial. They have a candidate for president who really understands the Constitution of the United States. They have a candidate who does not have to check with his puppet masters (handlers) to tell him what to believe and what not to say. And most important of all, they have a candidate who is not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, including a biblical position on abortion and marriage. That candidate is Ted Cruz. There are...

    How will we cope when the American economy crashes? What or who will replace the American Empire? “There is no America! There is a cash machine.”—Michael Savage We are experiencing the “Greatest Invisible Depression” in the history of the United States; the Depression Era soup kitchens and lines are unseen, coming to the mail box in the form of welfare checks, yet the government cash machine, the Fed, keeps printing bogus trillions that have no backing in goods and services. The welfare checks keep coming but the unemployment figures reported have dropped to 5.5 percent! According to economists, 5-6 percent...

He announced his run initially on Twitter (a nod to the younger generations) and followed it up with a speech at, of course, Liberty University. So, what is it that has the establishments on both sides of the aisle so worked up about Cruz running for President?

    Ferguson will hold municipal elections on April 7. The mayor and five of the six city councilpersons are white. Three are up for reelection. Since Michael Brown was gunned down by former Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson on August 9, the one loud refrain has repeatedly been how could a city where African-Americans make up the overwhelming majority of the population be policed by a nearly all-white police force, and governed by a nearly all-white city administration? The thought was that the Brown slaying angered and engaged so many thousands that it was almost a done deal. The first chance...

    The Obama Administration has declassified a top secret file disclosing the details of Israel's nuclear weapons program. Press Secretary Josh Earnest characterized the move as "payback for Netanyahu's deviation from the path laid out for Israel by President Obama. People have got to learn that their actions have consequences. When you defy the world's most powerful man you can't expect to get away unscathed." Earnest also argued that "it may help level the playing field in the Middle East. Even without nuclear weapons Israel has consistently defeated efforts to annihilate it.

    Someone had to be first. When it comes to the 2016 presidential campaign, that person is Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas). On March 23, he formally announced that he is running for president. Cruz’s rise to national prominence has been meteoric. He was first elected to the U.S. Senate in November 2012 after never having held statewide elected office in his home state of Texas. If Cruz makes it to the White House, he would match President Barack Obama in taking just four years to go from senator to president. Cruz would also accomplish something unprecedented in American political history: He...

In the early absence of much solid information about the 28-year-old pilot’s personal life the internet is, of course, going wild with speculation about Lubitz’ motives for deliberately crashing the plane full of innocent people...

  • Is Russia Arming Argentina to Enable a Grab of Falkland Islands?

    Russia is preparing to lease 12 long-range, supersonic bomber jets to Argentina, a move that some in Britain fear is designed to ready Argentina to take the Falkland Islands. Argentina has long argued that the Falklands—which it calls the Malvinas—are Argentine territory and should be controlled by Buenos Aires instead of London. The dispute escalated into war in 1982 when Argentina invaded the islands, attempting to establish sovereignty over them. The bloody 74-day conflict ended with British forces overwhelming the Argentinians and reestablishing British control of the islands. But British defense cuts in recent years leave the Falklands more vulnerable...

It alleges that, during her tenure, Clinton withheld documents requested under FOIA regarding State Department waivers given to...

    Fox News' Kelly File ^ | March 26, 2015 | Megyn Kelly
    (BEGIN-VIDEO-CLIP) MEGYN KELLY, HOST: The Guardian's declaring you are done 48 hours after you have declared. And to that you say? SEN. TED CRUZ, R-TX: Well, look, there's nothing like the warm embrace of the mainstream media. And I have to say. (END-VIDEO-CLIP) KELLY: That was Senator Ted Cruz on the Kelly File last night. I asked him about his welcome from the mainstream media, which many have since noticed is very different from that that was given to then-senator, now-President Barack Obama when he first announced his run for the White House. Joining me now to discuss it, Marc...

    Breitbart: State Department Spokesperson Jen Psaki said that the prisoner swap for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl was “absolutely” “worth it” and that Bergdahl “served his country as many men and women have” on Wednesday’s “Kelly File” on the Fox News Channel. “Was it worth it? Absolutely. We have a commitment to our men and women serving in our military defending our national security every day that we’re going to do everything to bring them home if we can and that’s what we did in this case” she stated. She also expressed confidence that the US would be able to keep an...

    Thursday, March 26, 2015 Obama’s Two State Tantrum Posted by Daniel Greenfield @ the Sultan Knish blog Obama’s two terms showed us that he was a sore winner. Israel’s election showed us that he is even more of sore loser. Ever since Netanyahu survived an election that he was supposed to lose, Obama has been throwing a floor-pounding, siren-shrieking and high-kicking tantrum over the Jewish State. Its latest kick and shriek had White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough sidling into the toxic atmosphere at the D.C. conference for the anti-Israel lobby J-Street to berate Netanyahu. In attendance at the...

    The president of the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce questioned in a meeting with reporters Thursday whether Sen. Ted Cruz’s snubbing of the group’s annual summit this week marked an attempt to avoid Latinos as he runs for president. “Ted Cruz chose not to come,” said a visibly displeased Javier Palomarez, president and CEO of the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce. “I hope it is not indicative that he’s backing away from the Hispanic community in order to get through the [GOP] primary.” Other presidential hopefuls such as Senators Rand Paul, R-Ky, and Marco Rubio, R-Fla., also did not speak at...

    Ithaca College Student Government Association is creating an online system which it claims will give students the ability to “report microaggressions.” It believes the action will “make Ithaca College a safer, more inclusive and diverse community for all students.” The system will be online and will fill the needs of students, the Student Government Association believes. It will also be anonymous. However, Kyle James, vice president of communications and co-sponsor of the bill, states that if a student who has been subject to microaggression wants to sue the “aggressor,” they’ll have to “reveal their identity.” The system will also track...

    With the race for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination officially under way, I thought it apt to share a set of questions on foreign policy — an area in which it is vital that each candidate distinguish himself given the size and scope of the threats we face. Below are 20 questions the next commander-in-chief will likely be grappling with, and should be able to answer cogently, consistently and comprehensively. The responses to these queries would serve to elucidate the first principles of each of the potential nominees, and create a clear contrast in terms of their goals, strategies and...

    On Feb. 20, Kamal Abbas, Egyptian union leader and prominent figure in the Jan. 25 movement, sent a message to the “workers of Wisconsin”: “We stand with you as you stood with us.” Egyptian workers have long fought for fundamental rights denied by the U.S.-backed Hosni Mubarak regime. Kamal is right to invoke the solidarity that has long been the driving force of the labor movement worldwide, and to compare their struggles for labor rights and democracy. The two are closely intertwined. Labor movements have been in the forefront of protecting democracy and human rights and expanding their domains, a...
