    “When they go low, we go high,” then-first lady Michelle Obama said during the 2016 campaign. Well, in 2020, the Trump campaign is hellbent on going even lower than ever before. They went so low last week that their "October Surprise" against Joe Biden crashed! ADVERTISEMENT Trump had promised federal charges against Obama-era officials for purportedly conducting a “coup” that undermined his presidency from the start by illegally probing Russia’s ties to Trump’s 2016 campaign. The president wanted to see President Obama, Biden and Hillary Clinton in handcuffs. But Attorney General William Barr announced that John Durham, the prosecutor looking...

    Disney+ subscribers who log on to watch classic films like "Lady and the Tramp" or "Peter Pan" now see stronger advisory messages warning of racist content. "As part of our ongoing commitment to diversity and inclusion, we are in the process of reviewing our library and adding advisories to content that includes negative depictions or mistreatment of people or cultures," Disney said in a statement online. "Rather than removing this content, we see an opportunity to spark conversation and open dialogue on history that affects us all," it added. The 1955 animated comedy "Lady and the Tramp" carries an advisory...

    I woke up panicked early Saturday morning: I couldn't smell. I immediately sprung out of bed, terrified I had contracted Covid-19 from President Donald Trump and his supporters after sitting only 15 feet away from them at the debate in Cleveland last week, where I was a guest of former Vice President Joe Biden.

    Green zealots infest all parties: the media, academia, education, and the vested business interests. They consistently oppose what works and promote what won’t. Greens demand “Zero Emissions”. Nuclear and hydro power are the only practical “zero carbon” electricity options for Australia. Greens oppose both. Greens worship “the environment”, but support widespread environmental destruction by bird-chopping windmills, and land-stealing solar panels and their inevitable spider-webs of roads and transmission lines. All to produce intermittent energy that is forced onto distributers and consumers by legislated targets, taxes, subsidies and mandates. Green policies support cutting forests in America to ship woodchips to UK...

    Northwestern law faculty refuse to explain why they introduced themselves as racists Northwestern University law school faculty called themselves racists as they introduced themselves in an online townhall recently, according to a screenshot of the event. The screenshot was obtained by conservative writer Rod Dreher, who noted in his tweet the meeting took place August 28. “Everybody began w/ a ritual denunciation of themselves as racist. Reader: ‘Prof. Speta is not a racist. He is a wonderful man universally loved by students. It makes me sad that he is forced to say otherwise,’” Dreher tweeted. The College Fix has reached...

    A college professor contends there was nothing wrong with the murder of a Patriot Prayer supporter during rioting in Portland, Oregon. University of Rhode Island Professor Erik Loomis appears "to justify the murdering of those who hold opposing views," wrote George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley. Loomis was commenting in a blog post on the murder of Aaron "Jay" Danielson allegedly by Antifa member Michael Reinoehl, whom the professor described as "the guy who killed the fascist in Portland last week." "He admitted it and said he was scared the cops would kill him," said Loomis of Reinoehl. "Well,...

    The mayor and police chief urged city council members to slow down discussions about the budget The Seattle City Council voted Monday to move forward with a controversial proposal that would begin the process of defunding the police department. The 7-1 vote comes despite objections from the city's police chief, mayor and the Seattle Police Officers' Guild. The plan would ultimately slash funding to the department but not the 50% some had sought. Seattle currently has around 1,400 police officers, and the current plan would see about 100 cut. It was also cut the police department's $400 million budget by...

    Self-proclaimed Marxist and Black Lives Matter (BLM) co-founder Patrisse Cullors called on Democrats to make “sea changes” to their party platform and adopt radical legislation that calls to defund the police force, eliminate both the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) and the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), and close all federal prisons and immigration detention centers, alongside various other radical demands — otherwise, “any claims of allyship and solidarity with our work to fight for black liberation are for naught.” Cullors stated there is “an opportunity right now to right the course of history” and warned that if not careful, the...

    Love and Brandon Gwaltney's gender reveal party started out like any other. The couple from Akron, Ohio, wore matching outfits of pink and blue. There was a cake decorated with pink and blue sprinkles and a big question mark on top. And then, of course, there was the big box that typically contains the pink or blue balloons that serve to reveal the gender of their baby. But as they counted down to one, what popped out were balloons of yellow, white, purple and black -- the colors of the nonbinary flag -- followed by their 17-year-old child, coming out...

    It seems as though the Washington Redskins won’t be the only North American professional football team changing their name in the near future. According to TSN, the Edmonton Eskimos of the Canadian Football League will also make a change in nickname due to concerns that the current team name is a racial slur. While the team has always claimed the name is intended to be respectful to Canada’s Inuit population, there has been a strong contingent of activists who claim the name is a slur.

    The recent racial tensions have caused some confusion among the Democratic Party’s more radical elements with Congressman Alexandria Ocasio Cortez claiming that Latinos are black and Congressman Rashida Tlaib claiming that she, as a “Palestinian”, is of African descent. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, also known by her initials as AOC, is the Democratic Party’s Representative for New York’s 14th congressional district. She is the youngest woman ever to serve in the United States Congress but with both her parents benign born in Puerto Rico, she should know a bit about Latino culture. It, therefore, came as quite a surprise when she claimed...

    Twenty Indian soldiers were killed during "hand-to-hand' fighting with Chinese troops in a disputed Himalayan region, India's military said, the first deadly clash between the nuclear powers in decades. Both sides blamed the other for Monday's violence, which followed weeks of rising tensions over their competing territorial claims, with thousands of extra troops deployed. The clashes reportedly involved intense fighting and no gunfire, in line with longstanding tactics to avoid a full military battle over the disputed 3,500-kilometre (2,200-mile) border. An Indian army source told AFP there was no shooting but there were "violent hand-to-hand scuffles". The fighting occurred in...

    Andie Hosch, 23, and his partner decided to try for a baby one year ago - while he was transitioning with the use of hormones and undergoing surgery. "But I started seeing some other transgender people getting pregnant that and I started exploring the idea and unlearning the internalized transphobia that told me I couldn't be a man who could birth a child. "A part of me was me feeling as though I shouldn't want to carry a child because of internalized beliefs about what it means 'to be a man' and that somehow carrying a child invalidated my gender."...

    If I wasn’t thinking about being Black, what would I think about? I think about the murder of Black people every morning. When I wake up, when I leave my house, when I jog around white neighborhoods, when I see the blue-red blur of a police car. I think of Black murder every time I open my phone to see white people’s vacations or dinners with friends or family gatherings. I look at white happiness and I wonder how they can so easily ignore the unjust murders countless Black families in America grieve every year. I look at white skin...

    This piece was initially written before the murder of George Floyd and the recent public outcry in support of the Black Lives Matter movement. Many educators and activists are sharing the same thoughts and beliefs. I am not claiming to be the end all be all of what anti-racist work looks like, but through my own education, I have come to understand the ways that my whiteness interacts with our society and the things I can do to ensure that I am not harming others because of my privilege. I have realized that, while there is not a hierarchical structure...
