  • Boston city councilor says street sweepers used at Mass and Cass may spread diseases

    City Councilor Erin Murphy has filed a hearing order to look into whether street cleaning equipment used in the area of Melnea Cass Boulevard and Massachusetts Avenue is spreading infectious diseases to other parts of Boston. Murphy said the city uses the same cleaning equipment on Southampton, Atkinson and Topeka streets as it does in other neighborhoods, including the South End, Back Bay, Beacon Hill and Bay Village. This creates the potential for contamination traveling from Mass and Cass to those other neighborhoods, Murphy said. She plans to discuss the hearing request at Wednesday’s City Council meeting. “It’s scary what...
  • While Navy Pushes DEI, 37% of Attack Subs Are Out of Order

    If only the Navy could repair subs as quickly as its transgender teams castrate sailors.On June 16, 2023, a date which will live in infamy, the Pearl Harbor base featured the story of Lt. Nick Grant, an “out gay cisgender man” who was a co-chair of the Naval Medical Force Pacific Transgender Care Team (NMFP TGCT). The title of the Pride Month feature was “serving with pride”. The Navy’s medical service, which can’t seem to do anything about active duty personnel killing themselves, has multiple “transgender care teams” for different regions composed of multiple specialists for different areas to “oversee...

    In Massachusetts, acting principal Heather Tucker and Middleborough Public Schools Superintendent Carolyn Lyons barred 12-year-old Liam Morrison from wearing a T-shirt with the words "there are only two genders." Since other T-shirts saying "celebrate gay pride" are permitted at the school, Morrison sought attorneys to help him defend his right to freedom of speech. Lyons defended suppressing the shirt, saying "it targeted students of a protected class; namely in the area of gender identity. This is hate speech that cannot be permitted. Liam's return to school wearing a shirt saying 'there are censored genders' mocked our authority and also had...

    Throughout the month of June, Americans from all walks of life have gone about their business surrounded by rainbow Pride flags. They are everywhere you look, from restaurants to online shopping to even everyone’s favorite escape, sports. As the alphabet mafia set their sights on major league sports, how are these teams responding to the other portions of their customer base? Are they giving in so they don’t become the next Bud Light or Target? Some are, but some are actually listening to their fan base. One of those teams is the Texas Rangers. The Rangers are the only team...
  • Michigan: Democrats stupefied that the Muslim community they hailed rejects display of gay pride flags

    Democrats have always demonstrated a sense of "ownership" of certain communities of color. So when the 28,000-strong Muslim-majority city of Hamtramck, Michigan passed an ordinance declining to wave gay pride flags from city buildings, they couldn't believe their eyes. According to The Guardian:In 2015, many liberal residents in Hamtramck, Michigan, celebrated as their city attracted international attention for becoming the first in the United States to elect a Muslim-majority city council.They viewed the power shift and diversity as a symbolic but meaningful rebuke of the Islamophobic rhetoric that was a central theme of then Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s campaign.This...

    The recruiting crisis within the U.S. military is a very real thing, and while senior military leaders and “military experts” have been putting the blame squarely on young people, all signs point to the bigger issue boiling down primarily to one thing: the federal government’s dangerous obsession with all things woke. From my perspective as a civilian, there is also the issue of how there seems to be a deemphasis on taking pride in America (which of course goes along with wokeness), with the focus being more on placating those with hurt feelings that go along with their long list...

    Despite growing backlash against the “pride” movement in 2023, there has been a noticeable increase in allegedly religious groups showing public support for homosexuality, transgenderism, and other aspects of the LGBTQ agenda. According to NPR, the rise in ostensibly religious groups’ support for pride is due to a nationwide initiative called Faith for Pride, run by the far-left group Interfaith Alliance. The group consists of multiple religions and denominations, including Christians, Jews, Muslims, Hindus, and others. “We are not going to let this happen to our LGBTQ siblings,” said Baptist minister Paul Raushenbush, president of the Interfaith Alliance. “Not on...

    No human has the power to make ugly what God has made good.As I write, our children’s schoolroom is festooned with rainbows. Christina Rossetti’s poem is on one shelf, Frederic Edwin Church’s painting on another. Hand-painted rainbows — colored with enthusiasm if not with Church’s skill — by our 5- and 3-year-olds hang on the walls. Are we taking a cue from the president, professional sports, and all the nation’s most powerful corporations and doing our part to celebrate pride in our little homeschooling way? No. Our lessons follow the seasons, and because it is spring, we have a week...

    June is gay pride month. The homosexual community has adopted the rainbow as their symbol of God’s acceptance of their actions and lifestyle. But what does the Bible say about this?The only place in the Bible that addresses the rainbow is in Genesis 9 after the Noahic flood that destroyed the earth because the world had become so violent and sexually promiscuous in Genesis 6.After the flood, God re-established his covenant with humanity through Noah and his family. The Message Bible says it like this, Genesis 9:1-4 God blessed Noah and his sons: He said, “Prosper! Reproduce! Fill the Earth!...

    According to several ‘Chosen’ actors, tolerance is apparently a one-way street.I have never been one to jump on the boycott bandwagon. Sure, if I have a choice between a seller that shares my values and one that doesn’t, I will choose to do business with the former. And if I turn on a program or walk into a store that assaults me from every side with the demand that I embrace something I can’t, I will turn around and leave.However, until recent backlash efforts like those against Bud Light and Target, I haven’t seen boycotts accomplish much. And I find...

    Disney’s The Little Mermaid star Melissa McCarthy had a starring role at Sunday’s West Hollywood Pride Parade where some participants engaged in explicit BDSM sex acts in full view of the public. One report claimed that children were present on the parade route where the BDSM activity took place. On Sunday, Melissa McCarthy wore a headpiece with the words “Say Gay” as she rode her own float during the parade, which took over a large section of Santa Monica Boulevard running through the heart of West Hollywood. Her headpiece was apparently a reference to Florida’s Parental Rights in Education law,...

    As a proud American who happens to be gay, I say it's time to end gay pride month.Last week the Los Angeles Dodgers came under intense criticism, including from a number of the team's players, for inviting a group of "queer and trans nuns" with a long history of anti-Catholic activities to its "10th annual LGBTQ+ Pride Night" on June 16th.This is just the latest controversial virtue signal on gay alphabet-soup identity politics, following close on the (high) heels of Bud Light's decision to promote a flamboyant transgender influencer on its cans and Target and Kohl's stores marketing transgender children's...

Prince George’s County Police Chief Malik Aziz and Jessica Garth, the chief of the Special Victims and Family Violence unit of the Prince George’s County State’s Attorney’s Office, announced Wojahn’s arrest at a news conference on Thursday morning. According to Aziz, on Feb. 17, the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children notified the police department that a social media account on the app Kik, which was operating in the county, possessed and distributed...

    Don Lemon’s sexist rant about Nikki Haley on Thursday turned the stomachs of his co-anchors and added to pressure on CNN boss Chris Licht to dump the acid-tongued host, The Post has learned. A furious Poppy Harlow walked off the “CNN This Morning” set following a tense exchange with Lemon after he said the GOP presidential candidate was “not in her prime,” according to sources with knowledge of the situation. One of the sources said Harlow took a “well-timed” bathroom break and was followed into the restroom by co-host Kaitlan Collins — who recently had her own run-in with Lemon....

    When five Tampa Bay Rays players refused to wear a game uniform with a rainbow logo during Pride month, it seemed like a childish move. Now it’s clear they started a misguided trend that is not-so-quietly building amongst anti-gay athletes in sports around the world. The refusal to wear a rainbow-colored uniform — and potentially miss games for the club that pays you to play — misses the entire point of the very simple act, instead infusing a clear message of inequality and rejection of an entire class of people...... I’ve had some people ask me if I’d wear a...

    The number of new HIV diagnoses in San Francisco rose in 2021 for the first time in nearly a decade, although this could be due to changes in testing in the wake of COVID-19, according to the latest HIV Epidemiology Annual Report from the San Francisco Department of Public Health (DPH). And for the first time ever, gay and bisexual men who don’t inject drugs accounted for less than half of new cases. HIV care indicators have generally improved or remained stable, but disparities persist, especially for people experiencing homelessness.

    Sharply rising cases of some sexually transmitted diseases — including a 26% rise in new syphilis infections reported last year — are prompting U.S. health officials to call for new prevention and treatment efforts. “It is imperative that we … work to rebuild, innovate, and expand (STD) prevention in the U.S.,” said Dr. Leandro Mena of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in a speech Monday at a medical conference on sexually transmitted diseases. Infections rates for some STDs, including gonorrhea and syphilis, have been rising for years. Last year the rate of syphilis cases reached its highest...

    The news of municipal deputies from Russian districts signing a petition demanding Putin resigns was shared by Ksenia Torstrem, a member of the St. Petersburg municipality Semenovsky, who published the statement on Twitter. She urged other municipal deputies to join the statement. “We, the municipal deputies of Russia, believe that the actions of President V. V. Putin are detrimental to the future of Russia and its citizens.” “We demand Vladimir Putin’s resignation as President of the Russian Federation!” reads the text of the petition, signed by about 20 deputies.
