    Roy P. Disney, grandnephew of Walt Disney, revealed that his child is transgender in a fundraising email for the Human Rights Campaign. “My wife, Sheri, and I have been members of HRC for over 20 years,” he reportedly wrote. “Equality matters deeply to us, especially because our child, Charlee, is transgender and a proud member of the LGBTQ+ community.” “We were heartbroken when Ron DeSantis signed the ‘Don’t Say Gay or Trans’ law in Florida,” Disney continued in the email. “The fight isn’t over, and we are determined to do everything we can to stop this from happening in other...

    A member of the Disney dynasty has come out publicly as transgender and expressed regret over not doing more about Florida’s recent, so-called “Don’t Say Gay” bill. Roy P. Disney — the great-nephew of Walt Disney and the co-founder of Walt Disney Co — disclosed recently in a statement that his child, Charlee, is trans. Roy revealed the news while also pledging $500,000 to the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) alongside his wife, Sheri.

    The Federal Election Commission has fined the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign for lying about the funding of the infamous, and discredited, Russian “dossier” used in a smear attempt against Donald Trump weeks before he shocked the world with his 2016 presidential victory. The election agency said that Clinton and the DNC violated strict rules on describing expenditures of payments funneled to the opposition research firm Fusion GPS through their law firm.

    The Daily Signal ^ | March 18, 2022 | Betsy McCaughey
    Woke corporate CEOs seem to think they know better than voters what’s best for the country. These titans are throwing their companies’ clout and cash behind activists pushing gender-fluidity lessons for kindergarteners and other extreme political causes. Expect this corporate activism to backfire. Corporations should be serving their customers, not trying to override the democratic process, like thousand-pound gorillas undoing what the electorate—including their own customers—wants. Walt Disney Co. CEO Bob Chapek declared his opposition Friday to a Florida state bill that bans instruction for children in grades K-3 about choosing their sexual orientation. The bill also bars teachers from...
  • Opinion: 'Hillary Clinton Derangement Syndrome' is worse than ever

    There's something infecting right-wing circles, and it's showing no sign of letting up: a fixation on Hillary Clinton that I'm calling"Hillary Clinton Derangement Syndrome," or "HDS" for short. The symptoms of this persistent ailment include an unhealthy obsession with the former secretary of state -- from spreading lies about her past actions to blaming her for events with which she has no connection -- combined with an insatiable longing to see her run for president again in 2024. A new HDS variant apparently emerged last week when special counsel John Durham, who has been investigating the origins of the FBI's...

    The United Nations Human Rights Council on Friday silenced the executive director of a U.N. watchdog after he drew attention to anti-Semitic comments made by teachers for the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA). The council cut off U.N. Watch director Hillel Neuer as he was testifying about his watchdog's report on anti-Semitic social media posts from teachers hired by UNRWA, a refugee agency tasked with educating Palestinian children. The report revealed that a teacher in the Gaza Strip had shared a video of Adolf Hitler "to enrich and enlighten your thoughts...

    The head of the country’s largest LGBTQ advocacy group defiantly tweeted Sunday that he will not resign over his role in ex-Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s attempts at damage control amid a sexual harassment scandal. Alphonso David - who took over the Human Rights Campaign after serving as Cuomo’s chief counsel from 2015 to 2019 - claimed in his statement that he had been asked to step down even after an independent review found “no indication of wrongdoing.” “The board co-chairs have now asked me to consider resigning, not because of any wrongdoing, but because they feel the incident has been a...

    A Black man who said a group of white men assaulted him and threatened to “get a noose” at a southern Indiana lake is facing criminal charges more than a year after the confrontation that earlier led to charges against two of the alleged attackers. Vauhxx Booker, a local civil rights activist and member of the Monroe County Human Rights Commission, was charged with misdemeanor trespass and felony battery for his involvement in last year’s Fourth of July incident at Lake Monroe, according to court documents filed Friday by a special prosecutor in the case.

    The Burger King fast-food chain is being called out for an apparent anti-Christian bigotry over its newest promotion that promises to subsidize the LGBTQ agenda. Steve Cortes, former President Trump's campaign staffer, posted on social media: "First, Burger King food is terrible. Second, we should welcome the acceleration of the Great Sorting. This corporation makes it clear it mocks Christians (and other religious people) and doesn't want our business. So be it."

    It was about 20 years ago that a conservative commentator stated that, because the homosexual movement could not grow by reproduction, it had to grow by seduction. Understandably, this incurred the ire of gay activists, as if their main agenda was the sexual seduction of others, including children. What this conservative commentator should have said was this: “The homosexual movement cannot grow by biological replication, so instead, it puts its emphasis on ideological indoctrination.” That would remain true to this day. To be sure, this is not a subject I would prefer to address right now, nor is it a...

    The international advocacy group Human Rights Watch parted ways with its general counsel last week after she repeatedly used the N-word during a class she teaches at Columbia University. Dinah PoKempner, an adjunct professor, used the term 11 times in half a minute while recounting a conversation to students during an April 1 Zoom session, the Columbia Spectator reported. The decorated attorney, who is white, was discussing legal implications of hate speech at the time, according to the report. During the lesson, PoKempner relayed an anecdote that included dialogue between a Ku Klux Klan member and a lawyer associate of...

    A wedding photographer in New York is fighting the state's "non-discrimination" law, alleging it violates her right to express her religious beliefs. In a lawsuit profiled by the Washington Free Beacon, Emilee Carpenter is taking Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo and his administration to court because they are threatening her with fines and jail time for her belief that marriage is the union of a man and a woman.

    The Human Rights Campaign (HRC), America's largest and most powerful LGBT lobby organizations, is pushing Joe Biden and Kamala Harris to target Christian educational institutions, demanding that the Biden Administration strip colleges that adhere to rules and positions opposing homosexuality of their accreditation. The HRC's "Blueprint for Positive Change," which offers 85 recommendations, proposes eliminating non-discrimination exemptions for religious colleges if they refuse to abandon the biblical position on marriage. Al Mohler, a theologian and president of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, sounded the alarm on the HRC's push in an essay titled "A Direct Threat to Christian Education." The...

    NEW YORK, November 27 (C-Fam) The European Commission intends to unleash a barrage of policies to impose LGBT uniformity across the European Union, including through the threat of sanctions. The powerful European Commission announced that it wants to make “hate speech” and “hate crimes” EU crimes by 2021 and to impose mutual recognition of “rainbow families” across the European Union by 2022. The EU Commission made the announcement in its first-ever EU-wide strategy for lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, non-binary, intersex and queer (LGBTIQ) equality on November 12. Alongside the pledge to legislate “hate crimes” and “rainbow families” the strategy sets...

    Biden is making sweeping promises to LGBTQ activists, proposing to carry out virtually every major proposal on their wish lists. Among them: Lifting the Trump administration’s near-total ban on military service for transgender people, barring federal contractors from anti-LGBTQ job discrimination, and creating high-level LGBTQ-rights positions at the State Department, the National Security Council and other federal agencies. Biden says his top legislative priority for LGBTQ issues is the Equality Act, passed by the House of Representatives last year but stalled in the Senate. It would extend to all 50 states the comprehensive anti-bias protections already afforded to LGBTQ people...

    On June 4, 2020, the Senate committee I chair granted me the authority to issue subpoenas for records and testimony to certain agencies and individuals relating to the FBI’s Crossfire Hurricane investigation, the “unmasking” of U.S. persons affiliated with the Trump campaign, and allegations of the political corruption of US agencies. Two months later, after patiently trying to work with these agencies and individuals on a voluntary basis, I have decided to begin issuing subpoenas primarily because of my strong belief that transparency in government is essential and that the American people have waited too long for the truth. Also,...

    Jenna Ellis, an advisor for President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign, referred to Pennsylvania health secretary Dr. Rachel Levine as “this guy” in a Tweet on Monday. The Tweet states “This guy is making decisions about your health” while linking to a PennLive story about a news briefing in May where a Pittsburgh radio host repeatedly referred to Levine as “sir.” Levine objected to being misgendered, and the host later apologized, saying he was distracted. The Tweet by Ellis prompted a response from the Washington, D.C.-based Human Rights Campaign, the nation’s largest LGBTQ rights organization. “Jenna Ellis is a bigot and...

    An archbishop has hired a “diversity and inclusion” consultant who is unabashedly pro-LGBT; supports the Marxist, pro-abortion, anti-family Black Lives Matter movement; and sees Republicans as evil to help him “grapple with racial tension” in a city that has long been plagued with racial unrest and violence. Baltimore archbishop William E. Lori announced in a June 5 letter that he has hired Howard Ross, founder and president of the Udarta consulting firm in Washington, D.C., to help him “implement the recommendations outlined in his second pastoral reflection on racism, ‘The Journey to Racial Justice: Repentance, Healing and Action.’” According to...

    Ypsilanti Mayor Beth Bashert suggested recently that she had no choice but to support the reappointment of a black man to the city’s Human Relations Commission — despite absentee issues. The color of his skin, not his performance was the key factor, Bashert indicated. “Since I will be crucified if I vote against any black person on a commission, I’m going to vote yes,” Bashert said during a discussion on whether to reappoint Ka’Ron Gaines to the HRC at a June 16 public meeting on Zoom. The comment drew immediate criticism. Her colleagues said Bashert’s assertion wasn’t true, and said...
