    The pro-abortion movement received a massive victory from the Supreme Court yesterday in striking down common sense regulations on abortion clinics to ensure they protect women’s health. After leaving women’s hung out to dry, what’s the next step for abortion advocates? According to abortion activist Sandra Fluke, the next step is forcing Americans to pay for abortions. Fluke outlined a number of scenarios in an interview where Americas might be forced to fund abortions — via Medicaid, for abortions for women in the armed forces and forcing Americans to pay for abortions view their health insurance premiums. Here’s more: ALEXANDER:...

Nearly all of the white children's activities were labeled as "cool," while the children of color were depicted acting in unsafe ways and were labeled "not cool."

    A Winter Haven man is apparently very serious about his food. So serious, in fact, that he called 911 Sunday night after a manager at the Checkers at 940 Havendale Blvd. allegedly got his food order wrong and closed the drive-thru window on him, said Jamie Brown of the Winter Haven Police Department. About 9 p.m. John May, 53, of 3455 Ave. F NW called 911 to complain about the incorrect order and the "insubordination" of the manager. When officers arrived to see what the problem was, they noted half of May's food was already consumed. He told the officers...

I would love for someone to carefully go through Obama's speeches and separate, record and string together his many aahs. I think it might go viral and exposes his "inner self". If you listen to his aahs they are often ugly and strange sounding. They are mixed in his speech so many do not pay attention and notice how they actually sound. I think that people would be amazingly shocked if they listened to them all strung together. They sound obviously demonic...

    The idea for the sex café has been brewing for several months, Bradley Charvet of the Geneva firm Facegirl told Geneva’s Le Matin newspaper recently. Modelled on similar establishments in Thailand, the proposed Geneva café would add a new dimension to the sex trade in the city of the protestant reformer Calvin. Put simply, the business model would see men ordering a coffee and using an iPad to select a prostitute they want to perform oral sex on them. They would then sit at the bar.

    Father's Day propaganda. Boston Globe photo of "transgender dad" at work. The incoherent war on truth continues. On Father’s Day the Boston Globe, the major newspaper in New England, featured a lavish front-page article about a father who had “transitioned to a female”. There was an accompanying article by his son – a Boston Globe videographer – who describes that he is now accepting his father’s new “gender” after years of horrible anguish that even caused the son to change his last name. The articles are laden with sentiments of “tolerance” and “acceptance.” But they can’t avoid mentioning the years...

It's the tale of a humble fart, unloosed on the world in a moment of innocence in the anonymity of a game between Swedish soccer clubs nobody had ever heard of. Its maker is Adam Lindin Ljungkvist, a left back for Järna SK's reserve team. They were playing Pershagen SK. He already had a yellow card. He also had "a bad stomach," per the Guardian. So, as he told Länstidningen Södertälje, which we're going to guess is either a newspaper or a cheap, self-assembled coffee table, "I simply let go."...

If not, the solstice is still pretty neat. This year’s even includes a "strawberry moon," the first time that’s happened since 1967. Below is a short scientific guide to the longest day of the year (though not, as we’ll see, the longest day in Earth’s history — that happened back in 1912).

The shelters can be used individually or stacked together in sequence, forming a line of bug-farming caves. Once the farm is up and running, the insects can be harvested as and when they're needed, before they are dried and ground into flour, which contains up to three times the...

Progressives argue that superheroes must be socialist because they believe in science, otherwise they wouldn't be able to develop all their gadgets and souped up vehicles, etc., e.g. Batman.
