    The Washington Free Beacon ^ | 04-20-2018 | David Rutz
    The flamboyant video blogging duo of "Diamond and Silk" will testify before the House Judiciary Committee next week as part of a "hearing to examine social media filtering and policing practices." The House Judiciary Committee announced: On Thursday, April 26, 2018 at 10:00 a.m. the House Judiciary Committee will hold a hearing to examine social media filtering and policing practices. This hearing will focus on what metrics social media platforms use to moderate content, how filtering decisions are made, and whether viewpoints have been silenced on some of the most popular and widely used platforms.
  • Planned Parenthood Calls Legislation Racist [semi-satire]

    Planned Parenthood complained that two new laws enacted in Tennessee to deny tax payer funding for abortions "hurt women of color." Sarah Wallet, the medical director for Planned Parenthood of Greater Memphis, asserted "this legislation is racist. Women of color are especially dependent on government funding for their abortions. To deny them access to public monies for this purpose does them irreparable harm." Though the legislation does not block abortions financed by organizations or individuals using non-government sources of funding, Wallet was still adamant in her objections. "The original mission of Planned Parenthood as envisioned by founder Margaret Sanger was...

    The immeasurable hypocrisy of the Democrat Party is really coming to light. This is not an article to defend Donald Trump's alleged immorality. This article is about the news media's hypocrisy and not reporting the infidelity of Kennedy, Clinton and many other leaders. Morality only matters to Democrats when the opposing party has failed in that Arena. The only purpose for dragging Cohen and Trump into court is to destroy the support from Trump's constituency. All of this is an attack on us, his supporters, not on Trump himself. It is not going to work. Funny how when Clinton was...

    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — A new bill in New Jersey would ban children under the age of 12 to play tackle football. Assemblywoman Valerie Vainieri Huttle introduced the bill last week. The bill prohibits children under the age of 12 from participating in organized tackle football programs. Woman Applies For Jail Job, Arrested Instead In Theft Case “Under the bill, children under the age of 12 will not be permitted to participate in tackle football offered by a youth sports team organization,” the bill reads, adding, “The bill also provides that a school district may not permit a student under the...

    Tony Robbins didnÂ’t invent the NLP techniques he popularized, but the number of people referring to his work in videos, books, and articles IÂ’ve read over the last few years is staggering. If youÂ’re talking about someone who has influenced the influencers over the last few decades, no one else in his field even comes close. Whatever you want to say about him (wait, you mean the infomercial guy from Shallow Hal? The giant guy with the big teeth?), he is as good as it gets when it comes to self-help, psychology and, oh yeah, sales. ThereÂ’s a reason he...

    Women have been complaining since the original Adams family was evicted from the Garden of Eden that "A good man is hard to find." Despite radical feminist mockery of the very idea of manliness, that men are natural sexual predators, most women -- with very few exceptions -- still want one. The #MeToo movement has nevertheless changed a lot of things in the wake of the sexual harassment-scandal season. One of them is the regard in which men are universally held by women. It often seems we're back to the '80s, when there was a similar assault on the idea...

    Tiger Woods got his ex-girlfriend Kristin Smith to sign a non-disclosure agreement to make sure she kept her mouth shut about their nuclear breakup ... but she wants out of their deal -- and now they're locked in a nasty legal war. TMZ Sports has learned ... Woods and Smith (who dated from 2015 to 2017) are currently in arbitration -- and sources familiar with the situation tell us it's all over a non-disclosure agreement. We're told Smith believes Woods cheated on her in 2017 and that's what ended their relationship. To save himself from another embarrassing sex-fueled PR nightmare,...
  • Gamma male syndrome: Why even liberal women aren’t attracted to liberal men

    What constitutes attractiveness? Apparently, not liberalism. Liberal men find themselves in a strange predicament: they’re less enticing to even the die-hard feminists they’re constantly trying to please. Science has a say on the issue. A study published earlier this year by political scientist Rolfe Daus Peterson found that conservatives of both genders are generally more attractive than their liberal counterparts. As expected, the left-leaning researchers concluded the politics stem from the looks: attractive people feel good about themselves and, as a result, are less inclined to social programs that help the needy. Despite the talk by p**sy hat-wearing women calling...

    John Zmirak Is the existence of pro-life Americans a “crime against women”? Is a woman “at her most powerful” when she lies down for a doctor to kill her unborn baby? That’s what feminist author and abortionist Merle Hoffman thinks. In case you dismiss her as a crank, New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman appears to agree with her. He joined her in a lawsuit aimed at ordinary Americans who stand on sidewalks outside clinics urging women not to choose abortion. Does such language strike you as creepy, even menacing? Is it troubling that one of America’s largest states is...

    My mother and I were in WHSmith in Guildford on a Saturday afternoon when I first became aware of the power of good looks. We'd spent a very happy afternoon shopping when she remarked: 'You do know men are beginning to notice you, don't you?' Then 15, I was a fairly unsophisticated schoolgirl for whom the purchase of a new pencil case held far more allure than the prospect of male attention. But I had noticed it, too. And, yes, there was a frisson of excitement at the prospect of this new phase of my life. For my mother, a...

    As women enter ground combat fields in larger numbers, the military services are working harder to make gender-specific accommodations for their gear — even down to tweaking protective equipment to fit around longer hair. According to presentations prepared by the Army and the Marine Corps for the Pentagon’s Defense Advisory Committee on Women in the Services, both services are making independent changes to ensure gear fits correctly for women with hair buns. A presentation prepared by Army Lt. Col. Ginger L. Whitehead, product manager for Soldier Protective Equipment, shows a recently introduced version of the Female Improved Outer Tactical Vest,...

    Sometimes, for those of us who are constantly reading statistics and poll results, something that you didn't expect to see stands out -- a number that makes you think the future will not be what you have been expecting. My latest sighting of such a number was in a March 12 New York Times report on a poll of college students sponsored by the American Council on Education, the Charles Koch Foundation and the Stanton Foundation. It asked students about free speech on campus -- whether it is allowed and whether it should be. College and university campuses have been...

    The all-women engineering team that designed the ill-fated pedestrian foot bridge at Miami’s Florida International University were highly touted for their advances in a field that is typically dominated by men. But critics are pointing the finger of blame at the female engineers for design flaws that may have brought the bridge down. Investigators are still on the scene of last week’s bridge collapse that killed 6 people and injured 9 on the FIU campus in Southwest Miami. The investigation is focusing on the work done by a team of all-women engineers who were employed by one of the construction...

Only someone who is seriously brain sprained would claim that almost 52% of white women voted for Donald Trump because they were afraid to stand up to their husbands, sons and bosses who wanted them to cast their votes for the protege of former President Barack Hussein Obama.

    Every year, I wake up on March 8 to a flurry of tweets from men wishing me a “Happy International Women’s Day!” And every year, I find myself thinking: Well, thanks, but is that it? Is that all the support for gender equality that you can muster? For the entire year? It’s a nice sentiment, but at a time when the gender pay gap means that women in the UK work for free for 67 days each year, Black women in the US are three to four times more likely to die in childbirth than white women, and trans women...
