    Watch: Man Steals Turning Point USA Signs at UNLV University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) student and Turning Point USA (TPUSA) chapter treasurer Michael Hanach told Breitbart News that a man approached him while he was promoting his group’s upcoming event on campus, stole TPUSA signage, and punched them into a nearby trash can. Hanach spoke to SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily host Alex Marlow about the incident — which was caught on video — in a Wednesday interview for the show’s weekly TPUSA campus report. “[The man] came over and smashed our boards, and walked over to the trash can,...

    VIDEO This surreal snowflake protest against Trump by the Target Center in Minneapolis has to be seen to be believed. Is this like the protest version of the silent "Jazz Hands" applause popular among leftists However, as funny as that protest was, the funniest moment of the night probably came from President Trump as you will see.

    Hobby Lobby, the arts-and-crafts giant whose evangelical Christian owners won a landmark religious-freedom ruling in U.S. Supreme Court several years back, is now under fire for selling signs that a customer alleges “glorify and encourage gun violence,” with some calling for a boycott of the chain. Shopper Leslie Ruffing, 39, was at her local Hobby Lobby in Aurora, Ill. when she came across two gun-themed wall decorations. One of the metal signs read “We don’t call 911,” framed by two opposing pistols with their barrels crossed, and with bullets embedded in the number “1.” The other yellow metal placard says...

    Art lovers are being warned of upsetting content before they enter the new William Blake exhibition at the Tate Britain. William Blake at the Tate Britain features 300 of his original prints and paintings in the largest collection of his work for nearly 20 years. But visitors are being told his artwork contains 'strong and sometimes challenging imagery' and 'depictions of violence and suffering' as they make their way towards the entrance. Blake was known for his radical and rebellious attitude, exploring struggles in his personal life as well as the political turmoil of eighteenth century Britain.

    The National Cathedral website ^ | 7-30-2019 | Bishop Mariann Edgar Budde
    The escalation of racialized rhetoric from the President of the United States has evoked responses from all sides of the political spectrum. On one side, African American leaders have led the way in rightfully expressing outrage. On the other, those aligned with the President seek to downplay the racial overtones of his attacks, or remain silent. As faith leaders who serve at Washington National Cathedral ¬– the sacred space where America gathers at moments of national significance – we feel compelled to ask: After two years of President Trump’s words and actions, when will Americans have enough? This week, President...

    Michigan State University informed student employees to refrain from using terms like "I apologize" and "no problem" and addressing customers with gender-specific “sir or ma’am,” in a mandatory August training. MSU Service Center employees witnessed an hour-long “Inclusive & Culturally Sensitive Service to Residents & Guests” presentation during their mandatory fall training, covering everything from identity wheels and utilizing pronouns to misgendering. "If I’m saying ‘no problem,’ that’s leading a customer to believe that they could be a problem..." Tweet This MSU Facilities Manager Sheena Ballbach claimed during her presentation that saying “no problem” could be a trigger.

    Campus Reform's Ethan Cai recently visited George Washington University in Washington, D.C., to ask students to sign a petition supporting the motion to change the "offensive" and "oppressive" white stick figure in LED crosswalk signs. Cai visited the university undercover, urging students to sign the outlet's fake petition. The petition urged the university "to consider changing the crosswalk signs," because a white man telling students when it is OK to cross the street is oppressive. "As we students cross the street," the petition read, "we are told by the symbol of a white man when it is OK to cross....

    FULL TITLE: Democratic Socialists convention is ridiculed as a 'meeting of snowflakes' after one delegate complains his 'sensory overload' has been triggered by 'whispering' - accidentally sparking a debate over gendered nouns Delegates at the Democratic Socialists of America convention are being ridiculed on social media after videos of them interrupting their 'comrades' to complain of being 'triggered' by chattering crowds and the use of gendered pronouns went viral. The 2019 DSA National Convention in Atlanta, Georgia, concluded on Sunday but is still inspiring conversation online, particularly among those who are opposed to the Democratic Socialist ideals.

    Source: YouTube/Campus Reform One of my favorite things Campus Reform does is go out to college campuses and get students' opinions on public policy. Campus Reforms' media director, Cabot Phillips, headed to a college campus to ask students how they felt about President Donald Trump's immigration and deportation policies. He recited a quote that was actually from President Barack Obama. "I have a quote here that's been making the rounds on social media about the deportation of criminal illegal aliens," Phillips said before reading the Obama quote. "'We are a nation of laws. Undocumented workers broke our laws and...
  • Third of Dems Say It’s Racist For White People To Criticize Non-White Politicians

    The groupthink mentality in the Democratic Party has reached a new clown world level. A new poll out of Rasmussen reveals that a whopping 32% of Democrats and even 16% of Republicans say it is racist when a white person criticizes a non-white politician. So, to keep your views completely immune from criticism in 2019, just don’t be white. When the sample of 1,000 voters was asked if they thought President Trump was a racist, 47% said yes. This was down from similar polling data that said 50% to the same question back in January 2018. When asked to define...

    There was a time when America’s big city mayors were real leaders. While few of them we so arrogant as to claim the title of “America’s Mayor” as did Rudy Giuliani, as a breed they exemplified the “take charge,” “get it done” attitude that voters respected and appreciated. Now, in the Snowflake Era that is seeing our country’s college campuses turn into adult day care centers, a number of elected mayors have transitioned to timid, “touchy-feely” office holders afraid to take bold action to protect their citizens and the institutions within their jurisdictions.  Portland, Oregon’s Ted Wheeler personifies this new...

    Daily Dose of Reason ^ | June 30, 2019 | Michael J. Hurd
    Borderline Personality Disorder and Snowflake America In psychology, there’s a term called “borderline personality disorder”. Borderline personalities see themselves as victims, even though they’re not victims. Usually, they blame everything on their parents. Interestingly, in their failure to launch, they typically remain at home with their parents into their 20s, 30s and even beyond. This helplessness and failure reinforces their unhealthy narrative that their parents are to blame for everything. And yet: If their parents are so evil, aren’t they the last people they would wish to live with? Wouldn’t they make it the central purpose of their lives to...

    As if controversy over the N-word were not enough to get the blood of many Americans boiling, now there’s an uproar over the O-word. And what on earth is the O-word? “Owner.” Apparently the term is too offensive for some in the National Basketball Association, and now there are reports that numerous teams in the NBA have had high-level discussions about moving away from the word “owner.” TMZ Sports says two teams have already implemented that policy. “We’re told the conversations essentially center around the idea that the term, owner — in a league where the majority of the players...

    New York University has canceled a "Reporting on the Far Right" elective undergraduate class after just two students signed up to take the course. NYU attracted headlines earlier this year after its decision to hire former New Yorker fact-checker Talia Lavin to teach the class. In June 2018, Lavin resigned from the magazine after making a false accusation against ICE agent Justin Gaertner for sporting what she believed was a Nazi tattoo, which turned out to be a 'Titan 2' symbol for former Marine veteran's platoon while serving in Afghanistan. “Canceling the class had nothing to do with Talia’s writings,...

    Lori Rodriguez, a 27-year-old communications professional in New York City, is not saving for retirement, and it isn’t necessarily because she can’t afford to — it’s because she doesn’t expect it to matter. Like many people her age, Rodriguez believes climate change will have catastrophic effects on our planet. Some 88% of millennials — a higher percentage than any other age group — accept that climate change is happening, and 69% say it will impact them in their lifetimes. Engulfed in a constant barrage of depressing news stories, many young people are skeptical about saving for an uncertain future. “I...

    Like most people who are extremely cool, I'm a huge Jeopardy! fan and have been in awe of the recent dominant run by James Holzhauer. The 34-year-old professional sports gambler has piled up $1.7 million in just 22 games, through a combination of remarkable knowledge, fast buzzing, and lucrative betting. He's averaging more than $76,000 per game. To give an idea of how impressive that is, when current winnings record-holder Ken Jennings set the one-day record in 2004, he won just over $75,000. Like former champ Arthur Chu, Holzhauer doesn't select dollar amount answers in neat rows, but rather he...
