    A California medical school student says professors are cowering to “woke ideology” out of fear that students will use an instant reporting system against them if they teach that sex is a biological reality and not a "social construct."In a piece titled “Med Schools are Now Denying Biological Sex,” on the Substack page called “Common Sense with Bari Weiss,” journalist Katie Herzog shared recordings of lectures captured by a student at a medical school in the University of California system. One recording details how, after using the term “pregnant women” during a lecture, the professor of an endocrinology course apologized...

    In deleting an Instagram post that is offensive to the Chinese government’s sensibilities, and apologizing for posting it, Kodak has basically promised Beijing that it will “learn, grow, and do better.” The US company issued a statement after removing content by photographer Patrick Wack – who described the Xinjiang region that is home to the Uyghur minority as “an Orwellian dystopia” – saying they don’t endorse or share the Frenchman’s views. Kodak had shared ten photos by Wack shot on the film it produces, in order to promote his book, which aims to visually present the way Xinjiang has been,...

    BABYLON, FL—The Babylon Bee would like to take this opportunity to apologize to Xi Jinping for a very, very bad mistake we made earlier. We continued to refer to him as "president" in our articles, when we really should have called him Winnie the Pooh, as he self-identifies as a honey-loving stuffed bear who lives in the Hundred Acre Wood. Here is our apology, Mr. Pooh: 亲爱的习近平领导人,对于您称呼您为“总统”,我们深感抱歉。 我们知道您确定是吃蜂蜜且非常胖的黄熊。 我们犯了一个非常非常非常严重的错误,我们非常非常爱您和中国政府。 用不与之相称的代词来误认一个人是非常糟糕的。 您是小熊维尼,我们希望尊重这一身份。 因此,从现在开始,我们将永远只称您为小熊维尼(Winnie the Pooh),这是一只可爱的毛绒熊,与克里斯托弗·罗宾(Christopher Robin)一起玩,非常笨。 非常感谢,请不要将我们送到监狱营地。 Thank you very much for your understanding, and may this lead to greater cooperation between our inferior country and your much superior land of...

    Gov. Andrew Cuomo took time to take a swipe at Mayor Bill de Blasio and New York City during a press briefing Wednesday where he repeatedly apologized over sexual harassment accusations leveled against him by three women. Cuomo’s attacks came after days of fierce criticism from Hizzoner over the embattled three-term executive’s treatment of young women — including staffers — and admissions that state health officials refused to release the complete tally of coronavirus deaths linked to nursing homes for months.

    U.S.—Katy Perry is under fire again for releasing a controversial new single "I Kissed A Republican And I Liked It." Leftists are upset that the artist is apparently endorsing a bizarre alternative lifestlye like getting along with people you disagree with. "This is an abomination," said one protester outside Perry's mansion. "God intended for the two political parties never to intermingle. Any civil disagreement between the two, the Lord hates." "God hates civility! God hates civility!"

    TheBlaze founder and 2020 Radio Hall of Fame inductee Glenn Beck issued a public apology to President Donald Trump for doubting him in 2016. In a series of tweets, the talk-show host wrote, "I am feeling so humbled this week. I feel truly horrible for the things I said and believed in 2016 about @realDonaldTrump. I believed the worst politically, which he proved me wrong at almost every turn. In the most dramatic cases (life/Israel/China/authoritarian)." Beck pointed out that the president deserves to be praised for his handling of the economy during the COVID-19 pandemic. According to researchers at Johns...
  • If Joe Biden Publicly Apologized To Tara Reade, He Could Probably Get Out Of This Mess

    The irony of this whole Tara Reade/"Fingers" Biden situation is that if Gropin Joe came out and made a public apology to her RIGHT NOW, he could most likely contain the blast damage from this situation. There's considerable sympathy on his side and in the middle with the independents for the #MeToo movement, and "believing all women". Telling the truth in the forthright "common man" Joe Biden way might just defuse the bomb. As it stands now, the longer Joe's Democrat political advisors delay the inevitable, the more collateral damage there is among his defenders, who are being forced to...

    A Yahoo! reporter got his facts wrong during President Trump's briefing with Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) on Tuesday. The reporter, Hunter Walker, asked Trump why South Korea was far outpacing the U.S. on testing per capita. A surprised President Trump shot back that Walker's numbers didn't sound quite right, and Dr. Deborah Birx confirmed his suspicions a few minutes later. Addressing Walker, Birx corrected him that while South Korea is at 11 tests per 100,000, the U.S. is at 17 per 100,000.  ICYMI: Mainstream media reporter tries to pick fight with President Trump and Dr. Birx, loses— Elizabeth...

    The Daily Signal ^ | February 27, 2020 | Kenny Xu
    The Wall Street Journal should stand firm in the face of China’s action last week to rescind the media credentials of three Journal reporters and order them to leave the country. Chinese authorities said the expulsion was over the Journal’s publishing a commentary by academic Walter Russell Mead headlined “China Is the Real Sick Man of Asia,” which addresses the communist nation’s economic fragility and the worldwide effects of a possible Chinese collapse. The Chinese government claimed that use of the term “Sick Man of Asia” in the headline of the Feb. 3 article was racist toward the Chinese people....

    Don Lemon, alleged news reporter at CNN, had a merry old time making fun of Donald Trump and his supporters on his program with two other yahoos who thought it was hysterical to mock Southern accents and question our ability to read good. After his unbelievably stupid breakdown on air, where he pretended to wipe tears from his eyes because he was laughing so hard, he is now claiming he had no idea what his guests were actually saying. Yeah, right. "This is personally important to me to address this," Lemon said at the end of his show on Tuesday....

    Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe apologized to an FBI investigator after changing his story regarding a leak to the media in October 2016, according to documents released Tuesday. McCabe was interviewed May 9, 2017, the same day James Comey was fired as FBI director, regarding two separate leaks to the media. During the interview, FBI agents also asked McCabe whether he knew how FBI information wound up in an Oct. 23, 2016, Wall Street Journal article about an investigation of the Clinton Foundation. McCabe said during that sit-down he did not know how the Journal story came about, but...

    Fired FBI Director James Comey on Sunday said he was “wrong” to say the FISA process was “followed” — however he remained defiant and claimed the mistakes were all just human error and sloppy FBI work. Comey appeared on “Fox News Sunday” and told host Chris Wallace that Horowitz was right in his conclusion that the FBI had made significant errors in targeting Trump campaign advisor Carter Page. Comey however was still defiant and denied any purposeful wrongdoing and argued the FBI was sloppy and made mistakes. Even as Chris Wallace showed Comey clips of DOJ IG Michael Horowitz saying...

    Associated Press ^ | November 18, 2019 | Brian Slodysko
    Michael Bloomberg on Sunday apologized for his longstanding support of the controversial “stop-and-frisk” police strategy ahead of a potential Democratic presidential run, a practice that he embraced as New York’s mayor and continued to defend despite its disproportionate impact on people of color. Addressing a black church in Brooklyn, Bloomberg said he was “sorry” and acknowledged it often led to the detention of blacks and Latinos. “I can’t change history,” Bloomberg told the congregation. “However today, I want you to know that I realize back then I was wrong.” Bloomberg’s reversal is notable for someone who is often reluctant to...
  • The worst piece of advice ever to Trump: Jonah Goldberg of National Review Says he should apologize

    American Thinker ^ | 11/01/2019 | Jack Hellner
    Jonah Goldberg, writing at National Review, says that President Trump is guilty and should apologize. In l’affaire Ukraine, the president is guilty as charged. And the best strategy for him to avoid impeachment by the House and perhaps even removal by the Senate is to admit it, apologize, and let voters make their own judgment. It’s also the best way to fend off a disaster for Senate Republicans.   This is one pathetic piece of advice which could have been written by any of many NeverTrumpers like Boot, Noonan, Rubin, Brooks and Romney, who like to pretend they still are...

"That's what people did in social and traditional media in the last few days. We respect their right to express their opinions. That's something that makes this great country great."...

    National Review ^ | October 23, 2019 | Tobias Hoonhout
    Former vice president Joe Biden apologized Tuesday night for calling Bill Clinton’s 1998 impeachment a “partisan lynching.” Biden’s comments were unearthed after President Trump faced criticism Tuesday for characterizing House Democrats’ impeachment efforts as a “lynching” on Twitter. Trump’s comments sparked a bipartisan controversy. Senator Susan Collins (R., Maine) responded by saying “the President never should have made that comparison,” while Kamala Harris (D., Calif.) called the use of the term “disgraceful.” Senator Lindsey Graham (R., S.C.) defended Trump, calling the impeachment inquiry “a lynching in every sense” and “un-American.” Biden joined in and tweeted a response to Trump, calling...

    Twitter has apologized for briefly allowing a hashtag that translates to 'Die Trump' to trend in Turkey. '#MahvolursunTrump' began trending on Twitter on Monday after US President Donald Trump threatened to 'destroy and obliterate' the Turkish economy if he deemed the nation's military action in Syria 'off limits'. 'This phrase should not have appeared in trends, and we're sorry for this mistake,' a Twitter spokesperson said in a statement to 'At times, we do prevent certain content from trending and we have now done so with this trend.' The Twitter trend came hours after the White House announced Sunday...

    As you have likely heard already, North Korea fired off two more short-range missiles into the ocean over the past week or so. This comes just as the United States moves forward with previously planned military exercises with South Korea, no doubt annoying dictator Kim Jong-un. The missile launches have no doubt put some strain on the “special relationship” that President Trump has been attempting to foster with North Korea’s tyrant, but yesterday he announced that he had received a “beautiful” three page letter from Kim, including a “small apology” for the missile tests and assurances that they would...
