    President Joe Biden has initiated a new directive that would prohibit the use of the terms “alien” or “illegal alien” in official immigration communications. The preferred term going forward for illegal immigrants will be “non-citizens” or other “inclusive” terms. Acting director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services Tracy Renaud signed a memo encouraging the “more inclusive language in the agency’s outreach efforts, internal documents and in overall communication with stakeholders, partners and the general public.” Axios reports, “Other changes include using ‘undocumented noncitizen’ or ‘undocumented individual’ rather than ‘illegal alien’ and ‘integration or civic integration’ instead of ‘assimilation.'” Axios reports,...

    We live in crazy times, no doubt about it. We live in an age where activists scream ‘BLACK LIVES MATTER!!!’ then turn around and kill their own black babies in numbers that outdo Hitler’s Holocaust of the Jews. We live in an age where activists scream “LISTEN TO SCIENCE!!!”, then turn around and tell us there are 100 genders and that men can become women in defiance of both science and biology. We live in an age where the spirit of Antichrist has begun to rule over the kingdoms of men. Men cannot become women, that is categorically impossible on...

    Actor James Woods rebuked the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) for telling Americans what they should, and shouldn’t say, instead of focusing its attention on the coronavirus pandemic. In a tweet on Friday, the CDC asked Americans “Are you using #inclusive language” and directed them to a CDC.gov webpage titled, “Preferred Terms for Select Population Groups & Communities.” “You nitwits don’t have better things to do in the middle of a PANDEMIC??!!” actor James Woods replied. The CDC webpage lists words and expressions that it says should not be spoken and provides suggested replacements that “represent an ongoing shift toward...

    Although more people are getting vaccinated, the nation’s assistant secretary of health says we still have a long way to go. "This is a good place right now, but we now have to redouble our efforts," Dr. Rachel Levine said. News 8 spoke with Levine for the first time since the former Pennsylvania health secretary took her new post in the Biden administration. Levine said the increase in new cases and more contagious strains highlight the need to get vaccinated. "We all need to work together to get the vaccinations and support each other," she said. Levine said she got...
  • Netflix’s Will Smith-Helmed ‘Amend’ Wants To Up-End The Constitution, Not Improve It

    The Federalist ^ | March 10, 2021 | Matthew Garnett
    At its heart, 'Amend' amounts to a well-produced, well-acted, and well-expounded helping of propaganda for the ongoing war on language and history. The Netflix limited series documentary “Amend” reminds an already deeply divided America that words like “unity,” “progress,” “equity,” and even “love” are only valid so long as one side of the political aisle has the sole power to define them. Ideologically, Americans are speaking two entirely different languages, a reality “Amend” puts on full display. Netflix spared no expense in production, employing Will Smith as the narrator of the series, backed by a bevy of Hollywood hard-hitters including...

    “Speaking of executive orders on gender equity, the president and the vice president campaigned during the election on giving a third gender option on federal government IDs to individuals who want them. Does the president see value in signing an executive order to make that happen?” a White House reporter asked Executive Director of the White House Gender Policy Council Jennifer Klein during a press conference. “I haven’t looked yet to see whether that requires an executive order,” she replied. “I would note that we are very inclusive in our definition of ‘gender,’ and we intend to address all sorts...

    Christopher Wray will spearhead Dems’ offensive against Trump supporters in the wake of January 6. “We have not to date seen any evidence of anarchist violent extremists or people subscribed to Antifa in connection with the sixth. That doesn’t mean we’re not looking, and we’ll continue to look, but at the moment we have not seen that.” That was FBI boss Christopher Wray testifying to the Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday. Wray claimed the FBI doesn’t care about ideology, but he left more than a reasonable doubt about how hard the FBI had been looking. According to a January 13...

    Gina Carano is “not currently employed by Lucasfilm,” the company said in a statement Wednesday after controversy erupted over “The Mandalorian” star’s social media posts. “Gina Carano is not currently employed by Lucasfilm and there are no plans for her to be in the future,” a Lucasfilm spokesperson said in a statement. “Nevertheless, her social media posts denigrating people based on their cultural and religious identities are abhorrent and unacceptable.” Carano shared several offensive posts on her Instagram stories Tuesday night, including one that likened contemporary political differences to the treatment of Jews in Nazi Germany. “Jews were beaten in...

    The San Francisco Unified School District's recent vote to rename schools over the reckoning of historical figures and their flawed legacies has been widely seen as an incompetent, embarrassing mess. The near-unanimous vote on Monday to rename 44 schools by the San Francisco Board of Education came after years of debate. The canceled names include campuses named after former presidents George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and Abraham Lincoln and Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein. And as if spending valuable time (and a lot of money) renaming a third of the schools in the district when every student is still stuck at home...

    Education secretary nominee Miguel Cardona appears for confirmation hearing and answers questions from Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky. “If you’re confirmed, will you enforce that Office of Civil Rights opinion?” Paul wondered. “I understand that there are a lot of concerns about that. If confirmed, it’s my responsibility and my privilege to make sure that we’re following civil rights of all students, and that includes activities that they may engage in in high school or athletics,” Cardona replied. Paul then asked, “What do you think in general of boys running in girls’ track meets like they’ve been doing in Connecticut?” —...

    The Biden administration wants to root out and eliminate what it believes to be an offensive word from every federal law. The immigration bill President Joe Biden is sending Congress aims to appease progressives and illegal immigrants who want to be called something more pleasing to the ear than the current federal definition. The word “alien” has peppered laws concerning those who are not American citizens since the 1798 Alien and Sedition Act. “The bill further recognizes America as a nation of immigrants by changing the word ‘alien’ to ‘noncitizen’ in our immigration laws,” a Biden transition team news release...

    As my listeners and readers can hopefully attest, I have been on a lifelong quest to understand human nature and human behavior. I am sad to report that I have learned more in the last few years, particularly in 2020, than in any equivalent period of time. One of the biggest revelations concerns a question that has always plagued me: How does one explain the "good German," the term used to describe the average, presumably decent German, who did nothing to hurt Jews but also did nothing to help them and did nothing to undermine the Nazi regime? The same...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Rules Committee Chairman James McGovern (D-MA) unveiled the rules for the 117th Congress on Friday, which contain “future-focused” proposals, including the elimination of gendered terms, such as “father, mother, son, and daughter.” “This package, which will be introduced and voted on once the new Congress convenes, includes sweeping ethics reforms, increases accountability for the American people, and makes this House of Representatives the most inclusive in history,” said the House Committee on Rules in a statement.

    Dictionary.com caught some some flack on Twitter Tuesday, after some users noticed it had changed the definition of the term “court packing.” One Twitter user went to the “Wayback Machine” on the Internet Archive and compared the old and new definitions for the term which has become debated in political circles following the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg in September. […] In the old case of “court packing,” Roosevelt’s example appeared as the sole definition. But now, the definition reads, “Court packing can tip the balance of the Supreme Court toward the right or left.” …

    “White” does not mean white. “White” in radical parlance means anyone of any race, creed, nationality, color, sex, or sexual preference who embraces capitalism, free markets, limited government, and American traditional culture and values.”This philosophical concept belongs to Noel Ignatiev, a white American of Russian origin, who is the ideological founding father of numerous radical black movements in America. The author of this concept was even lucky enough to see his best students -- Black Lives Matter (BLM) -- in action. Research into the work of this former Harvard professor finally answered the question of why BLM proponents are so...
