    Simmons said he has had no contact with Russell since learning the abduction was fake and he doubts he will ever know why she did it. “I’m confused, like what happened? What made you do this? I don’t understand,” Simmons said on the video, which is part of a podcast he and a friend have launched. “If you really wanted to tell me the truth, you could have told me. You could have told me before all this happened, before the police conference came out,” Simmons said. The two went to New York a week or so before she disappeared,...

    Divisive activists and media trick people into believing their sensibilities about right and wrong are something racial that must therefore be rooted out.A courageous man, along with his fellow passengers, restrained a mentally disturbed vagrant who was allegedly threatening to kill commuters on a New York City subway. A few weeks later, in the same town, a pregnant hospital worker checked out a Citi Bike to get home from her 12-hour shift and was surrounded by a group of men who falsely accused her of stealing the bike from them, physically harassed her, and then smeared her name on social...

    "Fact check: He threatened to shoot up his middle school and stab classmates who angered him," tweeted Christina Pushaw ************************************************************* On Thursday, the Miami Herald published a misleading claim about the recent arrest of the 13-year-old son of Rebekah Jones, the disgraced "whistleblower" who claimed the Florida Department of Health pressured her to manipulate Covid data to the benefit of Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, and the outlet said that the child was arrested over "memes" when he was arrested for threatening to shoot up his school, Holley Navarre Middle School. According to Yahoo News, the boy was arrested for "digital...

    Anti-transgender rhetoric and disinformation in the days following the shooting at a Nashville Christian school that killed six people have heightened the fears of a community already on edge amid a historic push for more restrictions on trans people’s rights this year. Authorities haven’t shared any evidence linking Audrey Hale’s gender identity to the motive for the attack, which killed three children and three adults at The Covenant School last week. Yet right-wing commentators, politicians and other figures have cited the shooting as they’ve shared false claims of a rise in transgender mass shooters and suggested that the fight for...

    Anabely Lopes wanted a child more than anything, so the 44-year-old was ecstatic when she became pregnant last year — and then devastated when doctors said her unborn child had a fatal abnormality... A new law restricting abortion access had gone into effect days earlier, and Lopes soon found herself on a plane, leaving South Florida to get an abortion at a clinic in Washington. On Tuesday, Lopes will return to Washington, this time accompanying U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz to President Joe Biden’s State of the Union address...

The left is quite happy about that. Leftists want us to accept...
  • Social Justice is Not Justice: If equity entails making everyone a victim, then "social justice" reforms are moving in that direction

    American Thinker ^ | 11/22/2022 | Keith Risman
    Socrates defines individual justice as “What is good for the individual soul.” He defines justice for the community as “Each person doing their part in a way that others do not interfere with their societal roles.” Social justice as applied in the United States fails to meet either definition of justice. Social justice policies have caused massive property destruction, increased crime, increased inequities, and increased racism. Rather than meeting Socrates’ definition of justice, they embody injustice by their very nature. These policies cause both individual harm and cripple many of the essential functions of society. In 2020, businesses and neighborhoods...

    Yesterday, partial and trending documents were distributed on social networks in Arabic and English from an arrest carried out at the Nablus gate. One of the documents that was circulated is of a woman who was detained yesterday evening (Saturday night) after violently attacking police officers. Later, for some reason, she was released in the field in a short time and made a show of fainting under the auspices of medical teams of the Red Crescent who were there and allegedly cleared her for medical treatment. A few minutes later she was seen laughing with another woman in front of...

  • Victimhood: Favorite Status of the Left

    America was founded and expanded from sea to sea by rugged individualists, freedom-loving men and women who believed in personal responsibility, self-sufficiency and independence. Our pioneering ancestors had a no-excuses attitude toward life. They believed in working hard, smart and long to build better lives for themselves and their families, wanted opportunities not handouts, would accept only what they earned and preferred a government that stayed out of their way. For decades, this approach to life carried over from generation to generation, making the United States the most productive and prosperous nation on earth, a nation where being "self-made" and...
  • Researchers identify a new personality construct that describes the tendency to see oneself as a victim

    A new personality construct has been defined that describes people who persistently see themselves as victims within interpersonal conflicts. The research was published in Personality and Individual Differences. Study authors Rahav Gabay and team describe how the social world is satiated with interpersonal transgressions that are often unpleasant and seemingly unwarranted, such as being interrupted when speaking. While some people can easily brush off these moments of hurt, others tend to ruminate over them and persistently paint themselves as a victim. The authors present this feeling of being the victim as a novel personality construct that influences how people make...
  • An Honest Book Review: ‘Black Victim To Black Victor’

    With so many “rules” around who can talk about what and when, reading Black Victim to Black Victor was incredibly refreshing in its no holds barred approach to any and all subject matters. You will find few accounts more honest and personal than this as he takes you on his intimate and international journey from victimhood to being a victor. “Why am I told to distrust the white man when I couldn’t even depend on my black father?”

    A lawyer defending Jeffrey Epstein confidante Ghislaine Maxwell is arguing that she should be treated as well as Harvey Weinstein and other wealthy men who were granted bail after being charged with sex crimes. “The truth is that wealthy men charged with similar or more serious offenses, many of whom have foreign ties, are routinely granted bail so that they can effectively prepare for trial,” lawyer David Oscar Markus said on Thursday in an appeal of US District Court Judge Alison Nathan's denial last month of the British socialite's latest bail request. Markus argued that the 59-year-old Maxwell, who is...

    He said he did not like spending time with Alissa, and Alissa was not close with anyone on the wrestling team. Another teammate, Angel Hernandez — who lives in Arvada and graduated from Arvada West in 2019 — said Alissa got into a fight in the parking lot after the match. “(The other wrestler) was just teasing him and goes, ‘Maybe if you were a better wrestler, you would have won.’ (Alissa) just lost it. He started punching him,” Hernandez said. Hernandez said Alissa frequently appeared to be paranoid about perceived slights against him, and Marvel said Alissa was often...

    An ugly story emerged on New Year’s Day: Vandals had attacked Nancy Pelosi’s San Francisco house, leaving behind graffiti on her garage complaining about the stimulus bill, along with a pig’s head in a puddle of red paint. People less credulous than the media, though, noticed that the vandals were kind enough to do their dirty deed without touching the brick facing on Pelosi’s house. These may have been polite vandals, or there may be more here than meets the eye. People quickly noticed something peculiar, though, about the graffiti. If you look at the upper right side, where the...
  • These Famous 'Disadvantaged' Individuals Never Saw Themselves as Victims

    07/20/2020 5:20:10 AM PDT · by Kaslin ^ | July 20, 2020 | Rainer Zitelmann
    In left-wing circles, being a victim is considered a badge of honor and anyone who is not a victim must be a “perpetrator.” The latter group, of course, includes “old white men.” A term which, incidentally, is always used with condescension, but should never be regarded as an expression of racism or sexism.  But does encouraging people to see themselves primarily as victims actually help anyone at all? Doesn’t it just make them feel helpless and remove their sense of agency? The message is: “Your life situation is the way it is for structural reasons, so you have no chance...

    Ex-Access Hollywood staple Shaun Robinson is taking former co-anchor Billy Bush to task for arriving late to the Black Lives Matter movement. Responding to Bush’s Extra Q&A with colleague Nate Burleson about the George Floyd protests, Robinson harrumphed on Twitter, “I appreciate you being an ally now. But, if you want to talk about the pain White Privilege causes African Americans, you should probably also talk to the Black woman who sat next to you on the set of Access Hollywood for years.” TVLine has reached out to Bush’s rep for comment. Robinson and Bush’s tenures at Access Hollywood overlapped...
  • Bubble-Wrapped Americans: How the U.S. Became Obsessed with Physical and Emotional Safety

    05/06/2020 12:21:44 PM PDT · by ammodotcom · 31 replies ^ | 5-6-20 |
    It’s a common refrain: We have bubble-wrapped the world. Americans in particular are obsessed with “safety.” The simplest way to get any law passed in America, be it a zoning law or a sweeping reform of the intelligence community, is to invoke a simple sentence: “A kid might get hurt.” Almost no one is opposed to reasonable efforts at making the world a safer place. But the operating word here is “reasonable.” Banning lawn darts, for example, rather than just telling people that they can be dangerous when used by unsupervised children, is a perfect example of a craving for...
