    Poll workers in Georgia who raised concerns about election irregularities were informed this week that their contracts are not being renewed, according to letters obtained by Epoch Media Group.Bridget Thorne and Susan Voyles say they witnessed abnormal actions taken during the election in Fulton County. They’ve spoken to news outlets and state legislators about what they saw.In the new letters, Dwight Brower, elections consultant for the Fulton County Department of Registration and Elections, informs the women that Georgia law enables officials to appoint poll managers, and managers must be reappointed for each election event.“There are many factors (management skills, performance,...

    PASTOR JAMES MACDONALD More than a month after winning a lucrative arbitration settlement against Harvest Bible Chapel in the greater Chicago area, founder James MacDonald has alleged elders colluded to oust him from the helm of the church in an unbiblical manner following a failed attempt at reconciliation.“Some are no doubt saying, ‘Dude, you got fired. It happens, even unjustly, all the time – own what you can, get over the rest and get on with your life,” he explained in a recent two part statement (part 1 and part 2) posted on his website.“I agree!

    A Starbucks barista has filed a wrongful termination lawsuit against the company because she says she was fired for not wearing an LGBT PRIDE t-shirt.Starbucks claims that her suit is “without merit,” that the company does not require employees to wear any item of clothing other than their trademark green apron.But the woman, Betsy Fresse who worked at Starbucks in Hoboken, N.J., says the reason that was given for her termination was “her comportment was not in compliance with Starbucks’ core values.”Fresse’s trouble with the company began when she transferred to another store in New Jersey.NBCNews:In June 2019, she and...
  • Something Happened at Trump's Rally Last Night that Should Single-Handedly Win Him the Election

    There’s a heavy emphasis on the word “should” here, but in a more just world, this would wrap things up for the President as we enter election day tomorrow. Last night, Trump barnstormed the country, doing five rallies in a single day. If that has ever happened before, at least in regards to the geographic breadth, it has to be exceptionally rare. The last rally happened in Florida, beginning around midnight because this guy has absolutely no quit in him. I’m not sure there has ever been a starker contrast in a previous election than what we are seeing this...

    “While we write and print millions of words about race in America, why is it still so hard to have a truly respectful, decent, and humble dialogue about perhaps the most complicated and contentious issue in American life?” asks David French in his Dispatch article “American Racism: We’ve Got So Very Far to Go.” Yet he does not mention in his story of personal change the elephant in the room: the Black Lives Matter movement’s radical cultural hegemony.Establishment Republicans made the same mistake by ignoring the movement’s radical premise: that at its core, America is rotten and systemically racist, and...

    The definitive answer as to what happened in the Manhattan U.S. Attorney’s office is still far from definitive. In the short period of time between Friday evening and Sunday morning, the bizarre saga of (former) U.S. Attorney Geoffrey Berman has taken more twists and turns than an Olympic luge run. Yesterday I puzzled over how Berman’s dismissal by either Donald Trump or Bill Barr (depending who you ask) was handled in such an apparently slapdash fashion. In less than a day, we went from Barr announcing the Berman was resigning to Berman saying he wasn’t. Then Barr said Trump...

    Democratic Sens. Mark Warner (Va.) and Dianne Feinstein (Calif.) are calling on Justice Department watchdogs to investigate Attorney General William Barr's comments about the firing of intelligence community Inspector General Michael Atkinson. "This is a disservice to ICIG Atkinson. It also raises broader questions about whether Attorney General Barr is following Department policies and rules of professional conduct that demand candor and impartiality from lawyers, particularly those who serve the public trust," the senators wrote. "We request that you investigate whether Attorney General Barr's statements in matters involving the interests of the President violate applicable Justice Department policies and rules...

    The Hill ^ | 4/6/20 | Jordain Carney
    Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine), a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee, is breaking with President Trump's decision to fire Michael Atkinson, the inspector general for the intelligence community, saying his removal was "not warranted." "While I recognize that the President has the authority to appoint and remove Inspectors General, I believe Inspector General Atkinson served the intelligence community and the American people well, and his removal was not warranted," she said in a statement over the weekend. Collins noted that by giving the heads of the House and Senate Intelligence committees a 30-day notification that he was removing Atkinson, Trump...

    President Trump’s firing of John Rood, the top policy official at the Pentagon [Under Secretary of Defense for Policy], is a sign the agency is not immune from an effort to purge from influential positions across the administration “snakes” who do not support the president, according to four current and former officials. Rood had been on the chopping block for months, but his firing just last week amid a spate of other personnel changes shows that the president is finally ready to clean house at a department that has tried to distance itself from politics, they said. * * *...

    Just when it seemed as though the transgender movement was reaching a fever-pitch and it was becoming impossible to stand up to the zealous mob of trans-enthusiasts, it appears some celebrities may have found the secret to shutting them down and evading the dreaded “cancel culture” imposed on anyone who dares speak truth or reason. Perhaps this culture battle is not all but lost after all. Back in December, famed author J.K. Rowling tweeted her support for Maya Forstater, a former tax expert who lost her job at think tank Center for Global Development for declaring that men and women...
  • Canada: Two Men Fired After Using the Word ‘Eskimo’ in a Private Conversation. Apology not enough for politically incorrect speech crime.

    Two Canadian men were fired from their jobs after one of them used the word ‘Eskimo’ in a private conversation. The two men were boarding a flight from Labrador to Newfoundland when Dave Beck said the word “Eskimo.” His friend Thomas Scott responded by asking, “Can you smell him?” The conversation was overheard by by Innu Nation member and former Labrador MP Peter Penashue and other passengers. Beck and Scott, who worked primarily as plasterers and painters, had been working on a hotel renovation project overseen by Kankote Enterprises. “In spite of several years on the job, and being...

    The time for sideline Christianity is over. A public school teacher in Chandler, Arizona is a prime example of the sort of treatment conservative, Bible-believing Christians should come to expect—and be prepared to fight. According to the East Valley Tribune, the Chandler Unified School District (CUSD) fired Annella Krom, an art teacher, for allegedly discriminating against a transgender student and bringing a box of Bibles to her classroom. The Tribune reports:

    The press is going bonkers over the exit of President Trump's national security adviser, John Bolton. "Trump unplugged," the New York Times blared, arguing that Trump was going to be his own national security adviser, and now things will get really crazy because the NSC job will no longer be important. No, nothing's gonna change, the New York Post argued, quite possibly closer to the truth.Trump's new national security adviser will be his fourth, a CNN kicker read. Chaos, argued Axios.And don't even get into the he-said, she-said of whether Trump fired him or whether Bolton resigned.  The media are trying to pick...

    The news wasn’t just a shock to the country, it was a shock to Wen herself. “I just learned that the @PPFA Board ended my employment at a secret meeting,” she tweeted. “We were engaged in good faith negotiations about my departure based on philosophical differences over the direction and future of Planned Parenthood.” That “good faith” ended abruptly when the president of America’s abortion giant found out she was fired. One of those philosophical differences, sources say, is that Wen happens to believe women’s health care is for, well, women. “Two sources told BuzzFeed News that Wen refused to...

    When Australian rugby star Israel Folau’s team contract was terminated after he voiced the principles of his Christian faith, he turned to GoFundMe Australia to crowdsource funds for his legal action against Rugby Australia. Three days later, the popular fundraising platform took down his page with plans to refund all donors. “As a company, we are absolutely committed to the fight for equality for LGBTIQ+ people and fostering an environment of inclusivity,” GoFundMe Australia manager Nicola Britton said, according to The Guardian. After his fundraising page was shut down, a “non-party partisan, non-denominational” group called Australian Christian Lobby reached out...

    People come to Pinterest for all kinds of things. But apparently, there's one thing users won't find on the app -- and that's tolerance. It was supposed to be a harmless site, a place for swapping recipes and planning kitchen remodels. Now we know: even the most innocuous platforms aren't immune from Big Tech's censorship. And if that's the case, conservatives are in trouble. Because the problem just got a whole lot worse than we thought. Eric Cochran was an employee of Pinterest, a software engineer. Like a lot of conservatives in the online world, he kept his views to...

    A judge dismissed Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel’s lawsuit Thursday challenging his suspension by Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis in the wake of the Parkland school shooting. DeSantis had accused Israel of failing to prevent the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida on Feb. 14, 2018 that left 17 people dead. The Republican governor issued an executive order removing Israel from duty in January. Israel sued to overturn the removal, claiming DeSantis had overstepped his constitutional authority. Broward Circuit Court Judge David Haimes ruled the order was compliant with Florida’s Constitution, according to The Associated Press.

    A case of a form of schoolyard squabbling arrived at a Court of Appeal in Australia on Monday. The court is tasked with deciding whether flatulence is a form of bullying. According to 56-year-old David Hingst, a former employee at Construction Engineering, it certainly is. Hingst sued the firm for bullying in 2017, accusing supervisor Greg Short (whom Hingst referred to as "Mr. Stinky") of being a serial offender who regularly "thrusted his bum" at him, news.com.au reported quoting The Australian Associated Press. Hingst is seeking damages of AUS$1.8 million ($1.28 million). "I would be sitting with my face to...
