    Guide to LiberalSpeak A Language Translation for Normal People in a Liberal-Dominated Culture With the cultural dominance of liberalism through the “mainstream” media and the intelligentsia, it was determined that there was a need to assist the average, patriotic, common-sense American in translating the confusing, paradoxical, often contradictory-to-reality politically-correct language used by modern liberals. The following linguistic translations are offered to assist the average American in understanding. The attempt was to formulate accurate and useful translations from an objective point of view, but keeping in mind how the modern liberal uses the term. ad hominem – a type of attack...

    During a press conference Monday, the Democratic governor addressed how coronavirus cases in the state are on a downward trajectory before labeling the virus as having originated in Europe rather than China. . . . “If you had said when we started this, yes we have more cases than anyone else, yes we had this European virus attack us and nobody expected it, but we are not only going to change our trajectory, we're going to change the trajectory more dramatically than anyplace else in the nation,” he added.

    President Trump, in an interview on “Hannity” on Tuesday, slammed the World Health Organization (WHO) for its “China-centric” views, adding the global health agency’s projections and pronouncements about the coronavirus pandemic have been routinely wrong. One of WHO’s earliest flawed pronouncements, the president told host Sean Hannity, was to strongly recommend against the U.S. restricting travel from China. Earlier Tuesday at a news briefing, Trump said he may put a “very powerful hold” on U.S. funding to the WHO. Sen. Lindsey Graham also said that the World Health Organization (WHO) should not receive funding from the United States under its...

    Whistleblower Chelsea Manning, who is in federal custody in Alexandria, Va., is recovering after attempting to take her own life Wednesday, Manning’s legal team said in a statement. Andy Stepanian, a publicist for Manning, said Wednesday that Manning was hospitalized after the event and is currently recovering. “Ms. Manning is still scheduled to appear on Friday for a previously-calendared hearing, at which Judge Anthony Trenga will rule on a motion to terminate the civil contempt sanctions stemming from her May, 2019 refusal to give testimony before a grand jury investigating the publication of her 2010 disclosures,” Stepanian said in a...

    I had a perfectly healthy child a year ago, and that perfectly healthy child has been altered and destroyed for absolutely no good reason,’ Rob Hoogland says. For the past 11 months, Robert Hoogland, a father in Surrey, British Columbia, has been forced to watch as his 14 year-old daughter was “destroyed and sterilized” by court-ordered testosterone injections. After losing his legal appeal to stop the process in January, Rob (previously anonymized as “Clark” or “CD”) is making a desperate attempt to bring his case into the courts of public opinion, even though it breaks a court order demanding his...

    Just when you think gender insanity couldn’t reach a higher fever pitch. Transgender activists have successfully lobbied sanitary pad brand Always to remove the Venus symbol, which has for millennia been representative of the female sex, from the packaging of their products to “be inclusive of transgender and nonbinary customers.” CNN reports: "Transgender activists and allies had publicly urged Procter & Gamble to redesign its pad wrapper without the gender symbol, a circle atop a cross. Among their arguments were that not all people who menstruate are women and that not all women menstruate. "The change is the latest in...

The state court system placed her on administrative leave.

    The case of two anti-Trump leftists, one of whom is transgender, who shot up a school in Denver last week has been placed under seal by a judge, banning the public from seeing it. Devon Erickson, 18, and Alec McKinney, 16, opened fire on two classrooms at the Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) charter school in Highlands Ranch, Colorado, on May 7, killing one student and injuring eight others. 16-year-old Alec McKinney identifies as male but is biologically female, having been born Maya Elizabeth McKinney.

    A student accused of opening fire at a Colorado school reportedly told investigators that he targeted peers who made fun of him for his gender identity, court documents show. Alec McKinney, 16, and Devon Erickson, 18, allegedly decided to carry out the shooting after exchanging messages on social media the day before the May 7 attack at STEM School Highlands Ranch near Denver, the documents show. The shooting resulted in the death of 18-year-old Kendrick Ray Castillo; eight others were injured. The police records, which were unsealed Thursday, show McKinney telling officers in an interview that he intended to “shoot...

    RUSH: Saturday in Atlanta there was a convention. It was the National Convention of the Democratic Socialists of America. Now, this is truly a fringe group. This is a fringe Democrat group that’s actually mainstream. This is a group that embodies quite a few young and middle-aged disaffected and completely abnormal people who cannot find a way to fit in. And I think, by the way, that accurately describes quite a large segment of the Democrat base, if you want to get right down to it. I think it’s a lot of people that just can’t find a way to...
  • The Dayton Murderer Is Proof We Need To Take Left-Wing Violence Seriously

    Forward ^ | 6 August 2019 | Cathy Young
    Amidst the disturbing trend of political conflict in the United States escalating into violence, it has been a staple of conventional wisdom that the real danger comes almost entirely from the far right. Thus, after journalist Andy Ngo was beaten up by activists from the militant left-wing “Antifascist” movement at a protest in late June, commentators such as Vox’s Zack Beauchamp cautioned against attempts to portray Antifa’s record of violent behavior as even remotely comparable to that of far-right extremists. Beauchamp quoted an Anti-Defamation League primer on Antifa which said, “To date, there have not been any known Antifa-related murders.”...

    The Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) National Convention in Georgia this weekend came to a screeching halt when one delegate formally complained of "sensory overload" from "guys" whispering in the room -- prompting another "comrade" to grab the microphone to angrily demand an immediate end to the use of "gendered language." The back-to-back moments of impassioned hypersensitivity at the gathering of the largest socialist organization in the United States led to bipartisan mockery from commentators, who compared the scene to something out of the sitcom "The Office." "Uh, quick point of personal privilege, um guys," began one delegate, who identified...
  • Trump Has Regrets: The ‘send her back’ chant at his rally was an ugly political moment.

    Wall Street Journal ^ | July 18, 2019 7:21 pm ET
    Donald Trump rarely admits a mistake, much less an overstatement, so we’ll take the regret he expressed Thursday at the chant of “send her back” during his Wednesday rally as the moral equivalent of an apology. Let’s hope his supporters get the message, and that Mr. Trump stops egging them on. The crowd in North Carolina broke into chants of “send her back” after Mr. Trump lambasted Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar for hating America. Mr. Trump had used the words “go back” in a tweet earlier in the week, and the crowd’s chant shows how easily an ill-thought presidential comment...

    A Berkeley City Council member rebuked an invitation on Thursday to appear on Tucker Carlson's show, calling the Fox News host a "white supremacist goblin." Rigel Robinson shared a screenshot on Twitter of an email exchange with Chelsea Gilman, a booker for Carlson's show, who asked him if he would appear on the show to discuss the city's decision to rename manholes "maintenance holes." Robinson, who co-sponsored an ordinance to remove all gendered language from the city's code, thanked Gilman for her offer before offering a scathing criticism of Carlson. "Unfortunately I won't be able to come on the show,"...
