  • 'Unconstitutional': In Massachusetts, Leftists Want to Give Islam Privileged Status

    Just in case you’re not celebrating diversity enthusiastically enough yet, here is more reason to start waving those diversity pom-poms: a new bill in Massachusetts would give Muslims privileged status. Here we see it yet again: “diversity, equity and inclusion” efforts are inherently and in always and every case a gateway to the preferential treatment of the Left’s favored groups. “Islam must dominate, and not be dominated,” said Hassan al-Banna, the founder of the Muslim Brotherhood ... In line with the fact that Islamic texts and teachings frequently exhort Muslims to subjugate Infidels (who must be made to “pay the...

    I guess this is one way to deal with public schools utterly failing to educate: just lower the standards for what counts as proficient.New York state has decided to permanently lower the math and reading proficiency standards due to the dramatic fall in test scores since the COVID lockdowns destroyed children’s educations. A committee has reported that student performance has been permanently damaged and that lower competence has become “the new normal.”New York will make it easier for students to reach “proficiency” on state math and English language arts tests, calling last year’s lower scores the “new normal.”A scoring committee...

    American families changed suddenly and dramatically in the 1960s. Marriage rates fell while divorces and nonmarital births increased (Lundberg and Pollak 2007). The share of mothers who were not married quadrupled between 1960 and 2010 (Figure 1). At the same time, married women’s employment and unmarried women’s welfare participation skyrocketed (Moffitt 1987, Goldin 2006). By 1980, mothers brought in one-third of family income, double their share in 1960. In 1991, Gary Becker reflected that “the family in the Western world has been radically altered— some claim almost destroyed—by the events of the last three decades” (Becker 1991, p. 1) Understanding...
  • Peculiar Case of George Santos Exhibits the Media Double-Standard: Suddenly, corporate media personalities and the American left find themselves deeply concerned about lying politicians.

    “I am looking for an honest man.”This was the answer of Diogenes the Cynic when asked why he carried a lighted lantern around Athens in broad daylight.George Santos’s embarrassing lies are bare for all to see, and the mainstream media hasn’t been this happy since the heyday of their Trump-Russia collusion hoax. Since one cannot tolerate bold-faced liars in political positions, many Democrats, members of the media, and the occasional Republicans have called for Santos to resign his House seat. After all, Santos won his seat under false pretenses. This is unacceptable!Let’s play a game shall we?Given the number and...

    It appears CBS News also doesn’t want to interview Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis. Just days after the Republican governor’s communications team announced it was cutting off NBC News over a lie spread by reporter Andrea Mitchell, CBS News decided it would allow a similar falsehood in its Saturday morning show.

    The beatings escalated after Rachael and Mo split. He would break in after midnight, the girls sleeping through his punching Rachael, choking her, telling her she was going to die. One night, he put a gun to her head. She was still shaking when the Portland, Oregon, police got there and told her she could request a no-contact order. “When I told him I was leaving him, he told me that he would kill me,” she wrote on the request, which stipulated Mo stay at least 150 feet away from her and the children. Mo ignored the no-contact order, showing...

    The social-justice warriors are pushing full steam ahead with their plans to turn our classrooms into indoctrination dens. The State University of New York system, in which I’m a political-science professor, just announced expanded “Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Social Justice” requirements for every degree program starting in fall 2023. That’s right — DEISJ classes are required to earn a degree, even in departments outside liberal arts such as math, science and engineering. These initiatives do nothing more than cultivate division, distort reality, eliminate the power of the individual and insult any fair-minded person. DEISJ is a cultural movement, not an...

    Attorney General Merrick Garland, the nation’s chief law enforcement officer, claimed on Monday his department has not applied a double standard of justice to President Joe Biden’s classified document scandal after reportedly agreeing with Biden’s personal lawyers to hide the scandal from the American people. “We do not have different rules for Democrats or Republicans, different rules for the powerful or the powerless, different rules for the rich and for the poor, we apply the facts, and the law in each case in a neutral, non-partisan manner,” Garland alleged to reporters during a press availability at Justice Department headquarters. “That...

    BLM activist and hate preacher Talbert W. Swan evidenced his apparent preference for racial division over truth with a recent pair of tweets suggesting that the Virginia boy who shot Abigail Zerner earlier this month would have been treated differently had he not been white. Only, as Twitter user "The Redheaded libertarian" pointed out, the boy was in fact black.Swan, president of the Greater Springfield chapter of the NAACP, wrote on Jan. 14, "A six year old white boy in Virginia packs his mother’s 9mm Taurus pistol in his backpack, goes to school, and intentionally shoots his teacher. If he...

    One of the two Atlanta fathers in jail for raping his adoptive sons was accused of luring a different fourteen-year-old boy for sex, seven years before a Christian special needs adoption agency handed over two vulnerable young children to him and his husband. Zachary Zulock was reported to police in 2011 for allegedly luring a 14-year-old boy to his home and raping him. For some unknown reason, the case was not investigated properly by the detectives involved, all of whom have now retired, and charges were never brought. Detectives now working for the department admit their predecessors' investigative efforts fell...

    A 6-year-old who shot his teacher allegedly told another educator he wanted to light her on fire and watch her die, according to a report. Last month, the troubled boy nearly made good on his apparent murderous impulses, shooting first grader teacher Abigail Zwerner at Richneck Elementary School in Newport News., Va., officials have said. Zwerner survived. Zwerner and other Richneck teachers said they had shared their fears about the child’s grave behavior with administrators, only to have their concerns downplayed or ignored, The Washington Post reported. Zwerner had asked for support with the boy, and expressed concerns about his...

    Intellectual Takeout ^ | January 13, 2023 | Richard Moss, M.D.
    Among many tell-tale signs of the tectonic fissures dividing the nation, perhaps the most telling is the call by prominent Democrats and others for reparations. A recent proposal by California governor Gavin Newsom calling for reparation payments of a potential $223,200 per black resident pushes the matter once again to the fore. Reparations refers to a compensatory payment made to the descendants of African slaves brought to America through the Atlantic slave trade. It is unworkable but speaks loudly of the state of our politics and culture.Proponents of reparations argue passionately of the stain of slavery, the long, dark shadow...
  • Paul Sperry Unpacks The Trump-Hillary Double Standard

    Former Attorney General Loretta Lynch obtained evidence that a computer contractor working under the direction of Hillary Clinton’s legal team destroyed subpoenaed records that the former secretary of state stored on a private email server she originally kept at her New York home, and then lied to investigators about it. Yet no charges were brought against Clinton, her lawyers, or her paid consultant. The leniency accorded to Clinton contrasts with recent moves by Attorney General Merrick Garland to aggressively investigate former President Trump and his lawyers for allegedly obstructing investigators’ efforts to locate subpoenaed records at his Florida home. Legal...

    The mayor of Ann Arbor, Michigan, installed a new gas line and gas-powered fireplace in his home despite his push for the city to phase out fossil fuel usage and boost electrification. City permits show Christopher Taylor, a Democrat who has served as mayor of the city since 2014, installed the gas line to hook up to his new fireplace earlier this year, MLive reported. Taylor has been a strong proponent of climate policies, including the so-called A2Zero carbon neutrality plan that calls on residents to buy electric vehicles, install solar panels and rely less on fossil fuels.
