    Sanford Health Systems CEO Kelby Krabbenhoft is stepping down after sending a controversial email about his recovery from the coronavirus pandemic. Sanford Health’s Board of Trustees announced on Wednesday that the two have “mutually agreed to party ways.” Krabbenhoft had been serving as the company’s CEO since 1996. Krabbenhoft told employees in an email last Wednesday that he believes he’s immune to COVID-19 “for at least seven months and perhaps years to come” adding that he isn’t a threat to transmit the virus, according to the Associated Press. He also said that wearing a mask was merely for show. “For...

    Following the death of “Jeopardy!” host Alex Trebek early this month, former champion Ken Jennings was named on Monday as the first interim host of the popular game show. A perfect selection, given that Jennings holds the record for the longest winning streak at 74 of any contestant in the 37-year history of the show, right? Yeah, no.According to the cancel culture, that is.Less than 24 hours after the announcement, a questionable 2014 tweet “resurfaced,” in which Jennings wrote: “Nothing sadder than a hot person in a wheelchair.”Interim ‘Jeopardy!’ host Ken Jennings under fire for insensitive tweet— New...

    Gen Z Conservative ^ | 6/07/2019 | Gen Z
    America has traditionally been known as a haven for free speech. Yes, you can’t scream “fire” in a crowded theater and cause a panic, but you can always stand up for what you believe in. Students, for better or worse, stood up against the government to protest the war in Vietnam. African-Americans marched for Civil Rights. Conservatives advocate for reduced taxes and less gun control. But the issue of free speech on college campuses never crossed their minds. They were free to say what they thought. Our system has been strengthened by that free speech because it brings debates into...

    Legal Insurrection ^ | 11-18-2020 | William A. Jacobson
    Politico ran a hit piece this morning about Dan, portraying him as someone who burst on the scene by peddling post-election conspiracy theories, Dan Bongino leads the MAGA field in stolen-election messaging: Bongino — a former police officer and Secret Service agent who was a latecomer to the talk-show world — is the surprise leader in the far-right media sweepstakes set off by Trump’s refusal to concede the election. While the president’s chances of clinging to power remain wafer thin, the prospect of a new conspiracy theory that could dominate right-wing discourse for four years is not being ignored by...

    Evangelical Lutheran Church in America ^ | 2 November A.D. 2020 | ELCA Worship
    Musician David Haas has been accused of sexual misconduct by several women spanning many years. Although Haas is not a member of an ELCA congregation, Evangelical Lutheran Worship includes four hymns by him: “Blest Are They” (ELW 728), “Now We Remain” (ELW 500), “We Are Called” (ELW 720), and “You Are Mine” (ELW 581). Several institutions have requested congregations to no longer sing works by Haas pending an investigation. Those who plan worship in the ELCA are strongly encouraged to discontinue use of these hymns and other compositions in worship. Both the ELCA and 1517 Media / Augsburg Fortress have...

    The Federalist ^ | November 12, 2020 | Kelsie Bolar
    According to a post-election survey conducted by Public Opinion Strategies, the biggest ‘shy Trump’ constituency of 2020 was a white, college-educated woman. Days before the presidential election, establishment media like The Washington Post claimed the “shy Trump voter” was no longer a thing. On-brand with big media’s track record of being wrong, exit polls are telling the opposite story. Indeed, there was a “shy Trump voter,” but it wasn’t the blue-collar worker pollsters missed in 2016. Instead, the shy Trump voter of 2020 was a highly educated “she.” According to a post-election survey conducted by Public Opinion Strategies, the biggest...

    Gen Z Conservative ^ | 11/11/2020 | Hannah
    The last few years for any Trump supporter were awful. Cancel culture, as I’ve always said, is a toxic concept. Cancel culture especially goes after anyone aligned with Donald Trump. You see people harassed in college, potentially get fired, or lose family/friends for having the “wrong opinion.” We have dealt with the worst of the worst, but now, the Left wants to be for “peace and unity?” I don’t buy it for one second. Democrats don’t, and never did, stand for peace and unity. If anything, it’s the opposite.

    Intolerant social media hall monitors are trying to enforce groupthink. ======================================================================= On Star Wars-based TV series The Mandalorian, actress Gina Carano portrays Cara Dune, a former shock trooper. And it seems that she is very comfortable “playing” a similar role on social media, where she continues to stand her ground against outrage mobs who keep going up against her in a bid to get her fired and “canceled.” And it’s not just about something Carano posted herself – now her dogged detractors are going through her Twitter likes to prove their point against the actress. The need not only to...
  • AOC Wants a List of Trump Supporters. What Will She Do with It? Try to Cancel Us? Or Send Antifa to Our Houses?

    Gen Z Conservative ^ | 11/11 | Gen Z
    Last Friday, the 6th of November, AOC, the pro-socialist rep from New York, made a shocking announcement on Twitter. Her tweet said “Is anyone archiving these Trump sycophants for when they try to downplay or deny their complicity in the future? I foresee decent probability of many deleted Tweets, writings, photos in the future.” Shortly afterward, a few of her democratic socialist supporters banded together to create the “Trump Accountability Project,” which will somehow hold people responsible for supporting Trump. What that means, exactly, is not yet known. But what we do know is that AOC wants a list of...

    By trying to name and shame Trump supporters, the ‘Trump Accountability Project’ betrays a preference for Soviet-style retribution over a commitment to basic decency. If 2020 didn’t already feel enough of a Kafkaesque nightmare, the latest bit of depravity from the “hate has no home here” totalitarian left is a ghoulish scheme announced by three former Barack Obama and Pete Buttigieg staffers on Twitter last week called “The Trump Accountability Project.” Aspiring apparatchiks Emily Abrams, Michael Simon, and Hari Sevugan lauded the website whose stated mission is to “never forget those who furthered the Trump agenda.”According to the now privatized...

    Believing they have won the presidential race, Democrats are compiling lists of Trump supporters to harass, keep from paid employment, ban from book and television deals, and more. One day after declaring victory in the U.S. presidential race, Democrats started making Enemy of the State political dissident lists of Donald Trump supporters for public heretic and disloyalty trials. Haven’t we had enough over-the-top political rhetoric in the last four years? Well, leftwing voices sure didn’t get the memo. Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin tweeted, “Any R now promoting rejection of an election or calling to not to follow the will...

    A New York grocery store owner is facing boycott threats because he offered a 20% discount to Trump supporters – even after he said he would honor the deal for Biden backers, too. The Fresh Food Supermarket in Oakdale, N.Y., advertised the offer on Facebook Wednesday with a graphic that said customers could get a discount if they mentioned their support for President Trump at checkout. Beer was excluded. The store’s owner, Jose Colon, a Dominican Republic native who is now a U.S. citizen, said he received immediate blowback, as social media users threatened to boycott and make calls to...

    Fans of the blockbuster movie series “The Avengers” can virtually hang out with six of the stars Tuesday if they contribute to Joe Biden’s presidential campaign. But it’s an actor who’s not attending who’s getting most of the attention on Twitter — and much of it is hate. Chris Pratt, known for his roles in “Guardians of the Galaxy” as well as “Parks and Rec,” was blasted on the social media platform by people who said his conspicuous absence was evidence of his secret support of President Donald Trump. From there, the conversation devolved into criticism of Pratt’s Christian faith...

    TRENTON, New Jersey -- With another nearly 1,000 new coronavirus cases reported Thursday in New Jersey, state officials are discouraging large indoor holiday gatherings, including Thanksgiving dinner. For many, it'll be a very different kind of holiday season. Sandy Kramer, of Mount Laurel, typically hosts 15 to 18 people at her Thanksgiving table. "I do the turkey and the stuffing. My daughter does the rest," said Kramer. But this year's crowd will be much smaller - just a few people. "We always have a good time. But maybe next year," she said.
