Marijuana use holds three-fold blood pressure death risk

July 16 - People who smoke marijuana have a three times greater risk of dying from hypertension, or high blood pressure, than those who have never used the drug, scientists said on Wednesday. The risk grows with every year of use, they said. The findings, from a study of some 1,200 people, could have implications in the United States among other countries.

Vegetarians Are Nearly Twice As Likely To Be Depressed As Meat-Eaters, Study Finds

August 9 - Vegetarians are almost twice as likely to suffer from depression as those who consume a conventional balanced diet, according to a new study. The new Bristol University study of almost 10,000 from southwestern England found that vegetarians were more likely to develop depression due to vitamin and mineral deficiencies that can negatively impact their mental health. The 350 committed vegetarians who participated in the study had a higher average depression score...

Why loneliness is more dangerous than obesity

August 10 - One is the loneliest number and, sometimes, it could even be the most dangerous. Loneliness is just as much of a public health hazard as obesity, if not more so, according to research presented at the American Psychological Association annual conference last week. Research from 148 studies, involving 300,000 participants, showed people who had greater social connections had a 50% reduced risk of dying early, and another set of research involving 70 studies representing 3.4 million...

The 'Big Lie': Dinesh D'Souza Exposes Neo-Nazi Roots of the Progressive Left

August 8 - New York Times bestselling author Dinesh D'Souza is out with a new book aimed at exposing what he calls "The Big Lie" of the progressive Left. "Ever since Trump, the Left has been accusing him of being a fascist; the Republican Party is the party of Neo-Nazis -- all of this is based on the assumption that fascism is on the Right, (that) it's a ring-wing thing," D'Souza told CBN News. "What I do in the book is kind of a deep history of fascism and National Socialism. I show, 'Wait a minute - these...

Mandatory Transgender Policy Adopted at Minnesota Charter School

August 10 - A Minnesota Carter school is adopting a far-reaching inclusion policy after facing a lawsuit over its treatment of a kindergarten student who identifies as transgender. In an effort to end a 16-month legal battle, Nova Classical Academy agreed to a settlement with the child's parents.

Typhus on Rise in Texas, Say Disease Experts

August 9 - Typhus, a flea-borne infectious disease thought to be all but eradicated in the United States, appears to be on the rise in Texas, say tropical disease experts.

Geographically, it spread from nine to 41 counties, although the highest...

LGBT Advocates Praise Disney Preschool Cartoon for Featuring Lesbian Moms

In the episode titled “The Emergency Plan,” the two doll moms, voiced by Wanda Sykes and Portia de Rossi, are faced...

UChicago professor: It should be legal to kill newborn babies

July 27 - A biologist at one of the most prestigious universities in the country has come out in favor of killing disabled newborn babies, declaring that “it is time to add to the discussion the euthanasia of newborns.” In a post on his personal blog, University of Chicago Prof. Jerry Coyne expressed approval over the idea of killing “newborns who have horrible conditions or deformities, or are doomed to a life that cannot by any reasonable light afford happiness.” Citing a recent...

Ben & Jerry's — 20 Years of Greenwashing

August 8 - I recently wrote about the greenwashing of organic milk, and how organic dairies, such as Aurora Organic, are nothing but concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFOs) in disguise that are unfairly putting true organic dairy farmers out of business with low quality milk. Few companies are as bad as Ben & Jerry's, however, when it comes to greenwashing and failing to live up to stated mission goals. Ben & Jerry's vision statement includes social, product quality...

He then went on to assault another woman and commit multiple break-ins before finally being caught while running from police. The assailant was identified as Sergio Jose Martinez, 31, of Mexico. Martinez also goes by the nicknames...

Calais Migrants Smash Driver’s Head With Brick to Hijack Truck

July 25 - Less than six weeks after the first driver death at Calais caused by migrants, a trucker has been struck on the head with a brick by illegals who then stole the victim’s vehicle. The Road Haulage Association (RHA) described the attack on the unnamed driver, who is recovering in hospital with a serious head injury, as “extremely disturbing” — and noted that it “comes as a stark warning to UK-bound hauliers that migrants will stop at nothing to reach our shores.

New Arabic Swimming Pool Signs Warn Guests Not to Molest Bikini-Clad Girls

July 26 - A swimming pool in Austria has had to put up signs warning male migrants not to grope women or enter their changing room, in an effort to prevent sexual assaults from taking place. The signs have been discovered posted in a swimming pool in Perchtoldsdorf, a town not far from Vienna.

The sign reads ‘NO!’ and next to it explains ‘physical contact with other guests is forbidden...

Ann Coulter: Pretty White Australian Girls’ Lives Matter

July 26 - As soon as the story broke about the Somali cop fatally shooting the pretty white Australian girl in Minneapolis, one of my Muslim fans emailed me a story: “Re: Hunting in Kuwait as explanation why this Noor guy shot through the car “I remember being in Kuwait with the president of the investment bank I worked for. We were invited by one of our directors to hunt turtle doves. There were five of us in all and each had a 12-gauge shotgun. “Instructions were: Only shoot straight and up...

U.S.-Australia Refugee Deal Is ‘Worst’ in Decade, Says Expert

July 26 - An Obama-era refugee deal that will resettle more than 1,200 Middle Easterners in the U.S. and tens of thousands of their foreign family members in years to come is an apparent departure from President Donald Trump’s promise of putting “America First.” The Australian-U.S. refugee deal was first agreed to in former President Obama’s last months in office, promising to take 1,250 mostly male Middle Eastern refugees off Australia’s hands. The refugees are being held in detention centers...

ACLU Uncovers Memos Showing Obama Admin’s Spying Violated Civil Liberties

July 26 - The American Civil Liberties Union has uncovered memos that show the National Security Agency (NSA) and FBI “violated specific civil liberty protections during the Obama administration by improperly searching and disseminating raw intelligence on Americans or failing to promptly delete unauthorized intercepts,” as reported by The Hill on Tuesday.

U.S. Justice Department says anti-bias law does not protect homosexual workers

July 27 - The Trump administration told a U.S. appeals court that federal law does not ban discrimination against homosexual employees, a sharp reversal of the position former President Barack Obama took on a key civil rights issue. The U.S. Department of Justice, in a friend of the court brief, told the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan on Wednesday that Congress never intended Title VII, which bans sex discrimination in the workplace, to apply to homosexual workers. The department also said...

U.K. called out for double standard over Islam

July 26 - True, it’s not the United States and there’s no First Amendment, but still the United Kingdom is mostly a free society. And most violent acts that injure are prosecuted. But not when Islam is involved, apparently. Which has gotten the government called out for having a double standard. Breitbart, for example, has reported the two different levels of enforcement have led to an online backlash, as commentators decry the police for focusing on “hate speech” enforcement...

Racism, segregation: Uniquely Democrat tactics?

July 26 - In 1857, the Supreme Court, with 7 of the 9 Justices being Democrat, decided that Dred Scott was not a citizen, but property. Chief Justice Roger Taney, appointed by Democrat President Andrew Jackson, referenced in his decision that slaves were “so far inferior…that the Negro might justly and lawfully be reduced to slavery for their own benefit.” After the Civil War, Republicans pushed through the 13th Amendment, adopted Dec. 6, 1865, officially abolishing slavery in America.

Latest 'homosexual' lunacy: Queer saints?

July 26 - Oscar Wilde has been the metaphorical patron saint for homosexual artists for over a century, but a planned art exhibit is coming close to a full canonization. Unveiling this September, the “Oscar Wilde Temple” will be installed in the Church of the Village in New York City. Artists “McDermott & McGough” will create a temporary chapel inside the Methodist church as a memorial to celebrity homosexuals over the last century. The purpose of the temple is to reflect on historic “homophobia.” This must be in church history somewhere, and undoubtedly the founder of Methodism, John Wesley, spoke on it often.

Judge rules against Charlie Gard's parents...again

July 26 - In a stunning display of how the United Kingdom health care system has taken over decisions that normally would be made by families, a judge has ordered that 11-month-old Charlie Gard, who has been battling a terminal condition, be moved from a hospital to a hospice for his last few days. Not his parents’ home, as they had wanted. The case has been replete with government decisions that overruled the parents, Connie Yates and Chris Gard, from months ago when they were stopped...

California secession campaign can start gathering signatures

July 25 - A group that wants California to secede from the United States can start collecting signatures for its ballot initiative. The state attorney general issued an official ballot measure title and summary Tuesday.

Martin Center. Bertrand says the trouble began after he told a joke during a class discussion...

German City With Most Immigrants Also Has Most Crime

July 5 - Over the past 20 years, European cities have slowly become more ethnically diverse, as EU governments open their borders to foreign populations. And as this process has taken place, the authorities have been quick to cover up any crimes that have been committed by these populations. For instance, Swedish police are no longer allowed to describe the ethnic background of the criminals they catch, and most notably, the German government and press were desperate to cover up...

California Closer to Creating Sanctuary State

July 5 - Over objections from sheriffs’ unions and the California Police Chiefs Association, the California Assembly Judiciary Committee took a step forward in making the Golden State a sanctuary for undocumented aliens.

This State Just Approved Free Abortions for Anyone at Any Time for Any Reason

July 5 - Democrats in Oregon have pushed through a pro-abortion bill that forces health insurers to pay for abortions for residents and illegal aliens, essentially making abortions free for everyone.

The measure requires reproductive health be covered in all insurance plans at no cost to the patient regardless of income...

July 5 - Last Friday, Nigerian immigrant Henry Williams Obotetukudo, aka Henry Bello, opened fire with an AM-15 rifle at the Bronx-Lebanon Hospital, killing one doctor and injuring a half-dozen others. I would prefer to leap right in and offer my ideas for stopping these immigrant shooting rampages, but first I’ll have to tell you the facts the media won’t. The New York Times, still unaware there’s an internet, is trying to pass off the Nigerian as a Californian, the non-doctor as a doctor, and Mr. Obotetukudo as “Dr. Bello”.

Chemotherapy may spread cancer and trigger more aggressive tumours, warn scientists

July 6 - Chemotherapy could allow cancer to spread, and trigger more aggressive tumours, a new study suggests. Researchers in the US studied the impact of drugs on patients with breast cancer and found medication increases the chance of cancer cells migrating to other parts of the body, where they are almost always lethal. Around 55,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer in Britain every year and 11,000 will die from their illness. Many are given chemotherapy before surgery...

A federal grand jury charged Abdirahman Sheik Mohamud with providing material support to terrorists, providing support to a designated terrorist...

Technology echoing Satan's assurance: 'You shall not die'

July 5 - A biotech company promising to resurrect the dead through the use of stem-cell technology recently was criticized by a rabbi for violating divine law with its plan. Now an American pastor is adding his voice to the condemnation, claiming medical science is coming close to replicating the first deception of Satan in the Garden of Eden. He cites Genesis 3:4, “And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die.” Pastor Carl Gallups, author of “When the Lion Roars...

United Airlines forces woman to hold 2-year-old on lap during flight

July 6 - Another United Airlines debacle left a Hawaii mother holding her 2-year-old son in her lap for a more than three hour flight, despite paying nearly $1,000 for his seat.

Young American men can find work but prefer to play video games

July 5 - Twenty-something men are working many fewer hours than they did a decade and a half ago, according to a new study, and the biggest reason is that they prefer to play video games. Men aged 21-30 worked 12% fewer hours in 2015 than they did in 2000, according to the study, published Monday by the National Bureau of Economic Research, and about half the reason is the time they spend gaming. The results suggest that reduced work for prime-age men is not just or even...

Doty, who prefers to be referred to as “they” rather than “he” or “she”, told CBC they are “raising Searyl in such a way that until they have the sense of self and command...

Migrant Footage From France Literally Looks Like It’s Out of a Horror Movie

June 27 - Footage out of France in which migrants block a road with tree branches in an attempt to hijack a truck literally looks like it could be out of a horror movie. The clip, filmed on a dashcam, shows the truck traveling down a dark road at night before migrants jump a barrier and run behind the vehicle. The driver is then forced to stop as he realizes the road is blocked by two large tree branches. The migrants continue to rush to the back of his now stationary truck, before the driver is forced...

Ten Commandments monument installed in Arkansas; ACLU vows court fight

June 27 - Arkansas installed a Ten Commandments monument on the state's Capitol grounds on Tuesday, and a civil liberties group pledged a court challenge, saying it showed an unconstitutional government preference for a certain religion.

Similar monuments erected in Oklahoma and Alabama were ordered removed by courts. At the installation ceremony for the some...

Pulaski County jail records show that Michael Tate Reed of Van Buren, Arkansas, was booked into the jail shortly after 7:30 a.m. Wednesday...

Macy's stock crumbles after dumping Trump

June 27 - Nearly two years after phasing out its Donald Trump line of menswear, Macy’s stock has plummeted to its lowest levels in years. Macy’s dumped Trump merchandise in July 2015 after the then-Republican presidential candidate made “derogatory” comments about Mexican immigrants. “Macy’s is a company that stands for diversity and inclusion,” the company said at the time. “We are disappointed and distressed by recent remarks about immigrants from Mexico."

Arabs at U.N.: Israel at fault when Palestinians beat wives

June 27 - Arabs at the United Nations have placed the blame for Palestinian men who beat their wives on Israel. in a statement so egregious it was immediately rebuked by a watchdog group.

According to PMW’s Itamar Marcus and Nan Jacques Zilberdik, the report claimed there was “a clear linkage between...

More evangelicals go along with 'homosexual marriage'

June 27 - Whether it indicates Republicans are giving in, giving up or just concealing their opinions for fear of being sued, a new poll shows that for the first time, Republicans now are evenly divided on the issue of homosexual marriage. A new the Pew Research Center survey found that two years after the Supreme Court decision that required states to recognize homosexual marriages nationwide, support for allowing homosexuals and lesbians to marry legally is at its highest point in more than 20 years.

Florida man spends 3 months in jail when police mistake drywall powder for cocaine

June 28 - Florida police put an innocent man in jail for three months after they mistook drywall powder for cocaine powder.

Trump Was Right: New Study Reveals Up to 5.7 Million Illegals Voted in Election

June 20 - A new study reveals that up to 5.7 million illegal aliens were likely to have voted in the 2008 election, meaning Donald Trump was almost certainly right when he said this was the reason for him losing the popular vote to Hillary Clinton in the 2016 race.

Mark 'X' for Transgender: Licenses Become 'Inclusive' in Washington, D.C.

June 21 - Washington, D.C. will soon offer gender-neutral licenses and IDs.

Delingpole: Tesla Car Batteries Not Remotely Green, Study Finds

If We Don’t Fight For It, The Liberal World Order Is Going To Kill Our Way Of Life

June 7 - There comes a time when it becomes necessary to draw a line in the sand. When the early settlers came to America, they were desperate to find a place where they could live in freedom. And our Founding Fathers worked very hard to draft a Constitution that would guarantee that future generations of Americans would live in a nation where the freedom and liberty of the people were maximized. Unfortunately, the way of life that our founders sought to establish is slowly...
