    An ad from Calvin Klein on Mother's Day featuring a pregnant transgender man and his trans partner has sparked a wave of backlash on social media. “Today, in support of women and mothers all over the world, we’re spotlighting the realities of new families," the company wrote in the caption of a Sunday Instagram post highlighting the campaign, which features three nontraditional families — including Brazilian reality stars Erika Fernandes and Roberto Bete. “Erika Fernandes and Roberto Bete are expecting parents from Brazil. Roberto is due to give birth to his and Erika's son Noah any day now,” the caption...

    Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) said Friday on ABC’s “The View” that interracial marriage and gay marriage are in jeopardy because Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito‘s legal reasoning in a leaked draft opinion that would overturn Roe v. Wade. Co-host Ana Navarro said, I’ve gotten calls from a lot of my gay friends this week who are terrified as a result of this leak because of what you just referred to as settled law, settled law, which isn’t so settled as we thought. Now, my friends on the right bring up Plessy versus Ferguson, which is the separate but equal. And...
  • Senator Bernie Sanders, 80, has not ruled out running for President AGAIN in 2024 if Biden, 79, is not on the Democratic ticket

    The 80-year-old Sen. Bernie Sanders has not ruled out running for president in 2024, should President Joe Biden not seek re-election. The Washington Post reported Wednesday that Sanders' 2020 Campaign Manager Faiz Shakir wrote a memo telling allies that the Vermont progressive would consider a third bid for the White House. 'In the event of an open 2024 Democratic presidential primary, Sen. Sanders has not ruled out another run for president, so we advise that you answer any questions about 2024 with that in mind,' Shakir wrote. The 79-year-old Biden has long said he'll run for re-election - though recent...

    The White House announced on Thursday that Karine Jean-Pierre, a veteran anti-Israel activist who is married to CNN correspondent Suzanne Malveaux, will replace outgoing press secretary Jen Psaki, raising potential ethical quandaries. The announcement drew celebratory headlines in the mainstream press: Jean-Pierre is the first black woman and openly gay person to serve in the role. But her relationship with the CNN reporter raises ethical questions about her new role. The White House did not respond to a request for comment about whether Jean-Pierre would recuse herself in dealing with CNN. Malveaux's colleagues include Valerie Jarrett's daughter, CNN justice correspondent...

    I have to say I enjoy the smell of liberal tears in the morning. Or afternoon, evening or night. Those tears are flooding the airwaves and it's fabulous- and sad at the same time. Progressives have pushed people too far with their lunatic actions and people are getting weary of it. The horse is dead, but they continue to beat it. They've run out of cogent thoughts and arguments (which were in short supply anyway), so leftists whip out the sad little things they have in hopes of keeping you down under their thumbs of guilt. The race card. The...
  • Ending WFH is 'RACIST'! Apple staff tell CEO Tim Cook that forcing them back to the office will make tech firm 'younger, whiter and more male-dominated'

    A group of Apple employees have accused the big-tech giant of racism over its push for corporate workers to return to the office, saying that the shift back to an in-person model will make the company 'younger, whiter, [and] more male-dominated.' The employees, organized under the newly-formed group Apple Together, petitioned the company on Friday in an open letter after CEO Tim Cook told staffers that they would need to work from the office one day a week starting on April 11, two days per week after three weeks, and three days per week after May 23. They wrote that...

    TEXAS—The majority vote in public comment chose to favor proposed policies that will put guardrails on social-emotional learning (SEL) programs and prohibit critical race theory (CRT) teachings for the Grapevine-Colleyville Independent School District (GCISD), following a board meeting on April 25.Board members Casey Ford and Shannon Braun proposed the policy (pdf) based on what Ford said was input from the community.After an antagonistic discussion about procedural issues—how the policy was presented, how the draft was written, and if it should be discussed that night or in a later committee—the board agreed to evaluate the policy further. A total of 40...

    For if Men are to be precluded from offering their Sentiments on a matter, which may involve the most serious and alarming consequences, that can invite the consideration of Mankind, reason is of no use to us; the freedom of Speech may be taken away, and, dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep, to the Slaughter.—George WashingtonWashington was on to something. There is no more vital safeguard of our liberties than freedom of speech. Without it, we are, as Washington graphically notes, “like sheep led to the slaughter.”Benjamin Franklin (writing as the widow Silence Dogood) said it as...

    The University of Waterloo has an opening for a tenure track position in geography, earth science, environmental science, or sustainability - but white men need not apply. According to a listing posted by the Canadian University last month, the position is only available to women, or 'qualified individuals who self-identify as women, transgender, non-binary, or two-spirit' - a gender-variant derived from Native American culture. Men, meanwhile, will not be considered, the school says - especially if they are white. The successful applicant would join the school's Natural Science and Engineering Research division in an Assistant Professor's role - a position...
  • Buttigieg floats 'monthly transportation payment' that 'covers everything' to replace car payments

    The secretary of transportation says a "monthly mobility dividend" could be in the nation's longer-term future. Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg suggested that transitioning to a "monthly transportation payment" from monthly car payments could be in America's future. Buttigieg also said a "monthly mobility dividend" could lie further out in the future. "What I mean by that is if we're looking way out into the future, where we have things like, let's imagine distributed energy generation where you have resources at your house, whether it's a dramatically more efficient, even solar panels and wind resources," Buttigieg said Wednesday at an...

    With Joe Biden flailing about in an utterly failed presidency, his poll numbers moving ever lower even as he tells everyone he's running for re-election, it's pretty obvious that he's not going to cut it.This seems to be why Bernie Sanders, two-time failed socialist Democrat presidential candidate, looks as though he's going to try to make third time a charm.According to Breitbart News:A leaked memo from Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) reveals the socialist is interested in another presidential bid.After losing in two Democrat primaries, one in 2016 to Hillary Clinton and another in 2020 to Joe Biden, Sanders "has not...

    Transgender orthodoxy has moved so far past the bounds of sanity that any attempt to question its effects is quickly discouraged and punished. We are expected to shut up and accept that public schools are passing policies to keep students’ gender identity transitions from parents, that medical professionals can file to remove children from their parents’ custody if parents oppose physical and chemical transition efforts, that a young man competed on a women’s swimming team and took home a women's championship title, and that a man who claimed to identify as a woman was allowed into a women’s prison where...

    There's just not much President Joe Biden can do about it. There's not much he can do to curb inflation. There's not much he can do to stop migrants from reaching America's southern border. Or to reduce crime, or to make vaccine resisters get shots that would hasten the end of the coronavirus pandemic. There's not much he can do to compel cooperation from defectors within his thin Democratic congressional majorities. There is nothing at all he can do to compel it from Republican adversaries who would rather aggravate than alleviate his burdens. In other words, there's not much Biden...

    A poll from the Convention of States Action and the Trafalgar Group found that nearly 70 percent of respondents said they are less likely to do business with Disney after the iconic entertainment company came out in opposition to Florida’s Parental Rights in Education law and after a series of videos saw Disney executives and producers boasting about including LGBTQIA2S+ content in programing for children. Some 57.2 percent said they are “less likely to do business with Disney;” while those “much less likely” come in at 11 percent — in all, 68.2 percent of voters are much more likely to...
  • Sex Ed Is the Opposite of Grooming Some pundits say that talking with little kids about sex and gender primes them to be taken advantage of. Sex-ed researchers say that the opposite is true.

    If you ask some (okay, many) conservative pundits, Democrats are “grooming” children. As in, grooming them to be abused by pedophiles. Some Republicans have even accused Democrats of being pedophiles themselves. The grooming charges lump together concerns that kids are being introduced too early to sexually explicit material, to the existence of transgender people, and to non-heterosexual sexual orientations. In March, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis signed what critics have dubbed the “Don’t Say Gay” bill, a measure that discourages teachers from discussing gender identity or sexual orientation in classrooms. Versions of the measure have been proposed in at least a...

    Progressive Oberlin College lost a huge case in appeals court last week that forced the school to pay $31 million to a bakery, which it falsely accused of carrying out racist actions in a 2016 incident. Gibson's Bakery – a 135-year-old family business near the campus of Oberlin College – was the site of an unfortunate incident. The owner's son allegedly confronted three black Oberlin students who attempted to shoplift bottles of wine. According to the police report, one of the suspects assaulted a store employee when confronted about the stolen wine. The three students pleaded guilty to attempted theft...

    For decades, the Walt Disney World Resort enjoyed tremendous growth in the state of Florida. It has become the largest vacation resort in the world, attracting an amazing 58 million visitors per year. Disney achieved this lofty status due to its reputation as a family-friendly destination. Unfortunately, in the last few weeks, Disney’s standing has been completely upended. The first revelation occurred after the CEO of Disney, Bob Chapek, expressed strong opposition to Florida’s new “Parental Rights in Education” bill, recently signed into law by Governor Ron DeSantis. Unlike media reports, the legislation does not permit any discrimination against any...
