    Michigan football helmets are one of the most distinguishable lids in college or pro football. The Wolverines winged look with the Maize and Blue colors has been in place for a century, but there will be a slight modification for this coming season. When the Michigan Wolverines hit the field for Saturday's season-opener at Minnesota, they'll have an "EQUALITY" sticker on the back representing the diversity and commitment to unity. The helmet decals will be worn by all Michigan's varsity sports this year after a student-athlete initiative in conjunction with the athletic department developed the designs that will be worn...

    Oct. 22 (UPI) -- A visitor to New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art helped solve the mystery of a long-lost painting after recognizing a piece hanging in her neighbors' apartment. The museum said a visitor to the "Jacob Lawrence: The American Struggle" exhibition at the museum noticed the artworks resembled a painting she had seen in her neighbors' apartment, and her curiosity was piqued further when she read that five of the 30 panels examining early U.S. history were missing. The woman spoke to her neighbors, an elderly couple who had purchased the painting at a friend's Christmas charity art...

    Anyone have data about all the riots? Where have they been, land area covered, destroyed, etc? I’m sick of arguing these liberals like on NextDoor who actually minimize the riots by calling them “protests”, then saying hardly anything has been violent (“MPP”). then bringing up the FBI more concerned about white supremacy like the MI gov issue, etc. you know, the one incident that proves the opposite.
  • Gwyneth Paltrow says daughter Apple has a 'beautiful' 'sense of entitlement' about gender equality: 'We are here for what the boys are gonna get '

    Gwyneth Paltrow admires the 'sense of entitlement' her teenage daughter Apple has developed about gender equality. In an interview with Adobe MAX, the actress, 48, described her joy at seeing how empowered her daughter had grown. 'By the time my daughter is in the workforce, like those girls are not going to stand for it,' Gwyneth gushed. 'When I see my daughter with her friends, they are so empowered. They have, and I mean this word in the best possible way, they have a sense of entitlement that's beautiful. 'It's not spoiled, it's like, "No, we are here for what...

    The Big Ten is slated to begin its 2020 football schedule this week. But when one team takes to the field, they’ll be sporting a black helmet logo to show solidarity with the fight for social change. On Thursday, the Illinois football team announced that their players will be wearing a black Block I decal on their helmets for their season-opener against Wisconsin tomorrow. The move is the result of an initiative from the student-athletes in support of advocating for social change.
  • Veggie Tales Creator Phil Vischer is WOKE

    Illinois Family Actioin ^ | 10/22/2020 | Laurie Higgins
    Christian creator of the well-known children’s video series Veggie Tales, Phil Vischer, is WOKE, folks. Recently, in some tweets, Vischer appears to be defending voting for the corrupt influence-peddler Joe Biden who embraces all sorts of policy positions that oppose biblical truth. Biden vigorously supports the Equality Act, which will lead to the oppression of theologically orthodox Christians. Biden enthusiastically affirms the legal redefinition of marriage to include homoerotic unions. He supports the chemical sterilization and surgical mutilation of gender dysphoric minors. He supports the sexual integration of women’s private spaces. And the corrupt Biden supports both the slaughter of...

    Of Course We’re Not a Democracy During the recent vice presidential debate, I pointed out on Twitter that our form of government in the United States is not a democracy, but a republic. The confused and vehement media criticism that ensued persuaded me that this point might be better served in an essay rather than a 140-character Tweet.Insofar as “democracy” means “a political system in which government derives its powers from the consent of the governed,” then of course that accurately describes our system. But the word conjures far more than that. It is often used to describe rule by majority,...

    The Federalist ^ | 10/22/2020 | Casey Chalk
    This month marks 143 years since Chief Joseph, leader of the Pacific Northwest Indian tribe the Nez Percé, surrendered to a U.S. Army detachment in northern Montana. There the warrior famously declared, “From where the sun now stands I will fight no more forever.”Others, however, are still eager to keep up the fight in the name of indigenous people. Demonstrators affiliated with the Miwok Tribe in San Rafael, California, on Oct. 13 vandalized and tore down yet another statue of Franciscan missionary Junipero Serra. Other ersatz torch-bearers of the cause include those municipalities, such as Baltimore and the District...

    A royal biographer has come forward with sensational claims about Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s relationship, saying the Duke is “deeply unhappy” in his marriage to his political activist wife. As The Sun reports, royal historian Hugo Vickers unleashed damning criticism of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex while speaking at the digital Raworths Harrogate Literature Festival this week. “He, no doubt, thought he had found himself a very exotic and glamorous wife out of the norm. Actresses can be very beguiling,” Vickers said of the 36-year-old prince. “Unfortunately, he finds himself now living in California, away from his family,...
  • Ratcliffe: Iran and Russia Have Obtained Voter Info, Iran Has Tried to ‘Damage President Trump’

    During a press conference on Wednesday, Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe stated that Iran and Russia have obtained voter registration information that can be used “to attempt to communicate false information to registered voters that they hope will cause confusion, sow chaos, and undermine your confidence in American democracy.” He also stated that Iran has sent “spoofed emails designed to intimidate voters, incite social unrest, and damage President Trump.” And has pushed content that makes untrue claims about people casting fraudulent ballots. Ratcliffe also said that while they have not seen the same actions being taken by Russia, they...

    Revolver ^ | 21 Oct, 2020 | Staff
    For more than two months, Revolver has worked to expose the true nature of the 2020 presidential election. Powerful forces in the national media, academia, intelligence services, and the courts are fighting to prevent America from holding an ordinary vote on November 3. Instead, they plan to pull off an Eastern Europe-style “color revolution,” where institutional forces are used to bring about the intended outcome regardless of what the law says or what the public wants, while giving the whole process a gloss of democratic legitimacy. Harassment, censorship, and intimidation of Trump supporters by any means necessary is a key...
  • Rush Limbaugh, losing his fight with lung cancer, vows to keep fighting the left

    American Thinker ^ | 22 Oct, 2020 | Pete McArdle
    Rush Limbaugh recently told his large and loving radio audience that he is losing his battle with lung cancer and that his days are numbered. Upon hearing that Limbaugh had been diagnosed with Stage IV lung cancer this past February, I feared that that battle might already be lost. Stage IV indicates that multiple metastases have occurred, that the malignant cancer horse has left the barn big-time. While chemotherapy does target cancer cells throughout the body, the chemo for Stage IV lung cancer is brutal and gradually becomes a danger in its own right. The average survival time after diagnosis...

    The University of Texas will not have its band performing against Baylor on Saturday. The dispute over “The Eyes of Texas” song looms large for the Longhorns. And it has reached a point that members of the band are refusing to play. According to Andrew Zhang with The Daily Texan, an internal survey was conducted to see if band members would be participating in the longstanding tradition. The results found that portion of the band would choose to skip the performance.

    Ten weeks after her widely reported arrest, the conservative new media star Weaver and her two fellow defendants have been exonerated and the mainstream media are ignoreing her vindication. On Friday, August 14, 2020, Millie Weaver, widely known as Millennial Millie, a 29-year old conservative new media video and print journalist with a large following online – including over 200,000 on Twitter – was arrested at her home in Ohio. The arrest stemmed from an indictment issued weeks earlier for multiple felonies relating to an alleged family dispute. The charges seemed specious at best but Weaver and her husband and...

    In a new interview with Metal Hammer magazine, LINKIN PARK's Mike Shinoda spoke about how the band's debut album, "Hybrid Theory", which celebrates its 20th anniversary this year, defied easy categorization and helped diversify metal's appeal beyond its core audience with its blend of hip-hop swagger, screaming, irresistible pop hooks and circuit-bending. "At the time, if you asked somebody what they were listening to, they'd say... 'Rock. I listen to hip-hop. I listen to jazz,'" Shinoda said. "It wasn't until five years later they'd say, 'Everything.' 'Hybrid Theory' did some of that work. It was part of the progression towards...

    What’s the first thing you do when meeting someone new? Exchange pronouns, of course, to make sure you refer to each other accurately. But what if you didn’t have to do that? Meet Earl Thornton. He has this amazing ability to guess people’s pronouns instantly -- just by looking at them. And he’s almost never wrong. “I don’t know, it just feels like I’ve always been able to do this,” said Thornton, who is very humble about his nearly supernatural ability. “I just look at somebody, and then before I can even think, I have their pronouns in my head.”

    MIAMI, FL—Many in the media are calling the Trump town hall Thursday a "super spreader" event. They are saying this because they are hacks who hate everything the president does, and also because he made out with every audience member. Every time he was asked a question, Trump stood up, walked over to the undecided voter, and gave him a long, passionate kiss. "I love America, and I love you," Trump said in response to a question one voter asked about his pandemic response. "Come over here, you big lovebug. Muah! That's it. Right on the ol' smackers! Give Daddy...

    The answer should be obvious: you shouldn’t. Not in a million years. I know people who are still trying to decide whether or not to vote for Democrats in this election. As shocking as that might seem, it’s true. And as with any important decision that must be made, an important question to answer before deciding to do it is “Why?” While I know some people simply vote for personalities, let’s assume for sake of argument that some undecided voters are actually thinking people who want to wrestle with what is at stake in this election for them, their families,...

    The Supreme Court advises that judges should not change state and county election rules right before an election, a Cincinnati-based appeals court has reminded a lower court. The Ohio case, like others this election season, involves the use of ballot “drop boxes” and restrictions that officials may put on them while attempting to maintain the integrity of state elections. In a split decision, 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Richard Griffin, writing for himself and Judge Amul Thapar, said: “The Supreme Court has repeatedly emphasized that lower federal courts should ordinarily not alter election rules on the eve of...
