Ohio State tells students only white people can be racist

September 20 - A workshop held at Ohio State University on Tuesday taught white student attendees about their “privilege,” how to not act racist, and that it’s impossible for white people to be victims of racism and only white people can be racist.

Judge Roy Moore: We Removed God from Schools, Shootings and Death Filled the Void

September 19 - CNN is lamenting the fact that GOP frontrunner for the U.S. Senate in Alabama Judge Roy Moore told pastors and Christians in a speech last month that shootings and killings in American society are the result of removing God from schools. Andrew Kaczynski’s KFile on CNN dug up a video of Moore from late August speaking at Citizen Impact USA, making the comments that have CNN and the GOP establishment in Washington similarly freaked out. “We are losing the...

Tarps covering Confederate statues are being ripped down

September 20 - Officials in Charlottesville, Virginia, are trying to stop people from ripping down tarps that cover statues of Confederate generals. The Daily Progress reported Tuesday that the city has placed plastic fencing around the monuments to Robert E. Lee and Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson. The tarps have been ripped down six times. The coverings are a gesture of mourning for Heather Heyer. She was killed Aug. 12 when a car plowed into a group of people at a rally in which white...

'Racist!' America goes bonkers over cotton balls

September 19 - Who knew! Those fluffy white cotton balls on display in your favorite floral arrangement or in your bathroom cabinet? They just might be r-a-a-a-c-i-s-t! At least some people in Texas and Tennessee apparently think so. On Sept. 14, Daniell Rider, a black woman from Killeen, Texas, ripped into the Hobby Lobby craft chain when she spotted raw cotton on its shelves. “This decor is WRONG on SO many levels,” Rider said in a post on Hobby Lobby’s Facebook page.

Sessions: Sanctuary Cities Undermine Law's Moral Authority

September 20 - U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Tuesday criticized sanctuary cities that try to protect aliens in the country illegally as places that "undermine the moral authority of the law."

Arizona Supreme Court Says Homosexuals Get Equal Parental Rights

September 20 - The Arizona Supreme Court on Tuesday ruled that a lesbian woman who is divorcing her partner is entitled to equal parental rights under the U.S. Constitution, even though a state law doesn't recognize those rights. The ruling from the state's highest court said U.S. Supreme Court precedent requires homosexual couples be afforded the same rights as straight couples. It goes much further, suggesting that a host of Arizona laws and rules need to be...

Texas School Sheds ‘Robert E. Lee’ for ‘Student Safety’

August 31 - A Texas high school cited “student safety” concerns as the reason for shedding its nearly 60-year-old Confederate namesake, General Robert E. Lee. This marks the second time in a week that public education officials in the Lone Star State used the rationale to strip a slice of history from a campus. North East Independent School District trustees held a special meeting Tuesday night where they voted unanimously, 7-0, to change the name of Robert E. Lee High. Last Thursday, Midland ISD administrators framed “student safety” to nix a few bars of the southern favorite “Dixie” out of their school fight song.

"This gesture of replacing Columbus Day with Indigenous Peoples' Day is a very small step...

Federal Judge Blocks Texas' Tough 'Sanctuary Cities' Law

August 31 - Texas can’t punish so-called sanctuary cities, after a federal judge temporarily blocked a measure that would have let Texas’s Republican leadership jail sheriffs and fine towns for failing to fully cooperate with U.S. immigration policies. The law, known as Senate Bill 4, had been cheered by President Donald Trump's administration and was set to take effect Friday. It was widely viewed as the toughest immigration measure in the nation since Arizona passed what critics...

Israeli-Arab Summer Camp Teaches Kids to Hate Israel

August 31 - The summer holidays are coming to an end. That means summer camps are wrapping up with ceremonies and celebrations. One local Arab summer camp in Israel is concluding in a particularly worrying manner. The above video is from the summer camp program of the Arab Balad Party, a faction in Israel's Knesset. The organizers of this camp decided this year to conclude with a special march through Bethlehem, where the Israeli-Arab children were encouraged to honor...

New Study Finds Muslims & Leftists Responsible For Vast Majority of Anti-Semitic Hate Crime

Sweden: Court Refuses to Deport Migrant Who Raped Mentally Disabled Child Because He ‘Felt Bad’

August 29 - A court in Sweden has refused to deport an Afghan migrant who raped a 15-year-old mentally disabled girl for an hour and a half because he was in a “bad mood” about it afterwards and had suffered hardship in his home country. Two migrants kidnapped and brutally raped the girl vaginally, orally and anally in the middle of winter in the Arlöv area of Sweden. The girl is now frightened of going outside and is petrified of men. “If you kiss or fuck someone else, I will kill you,” the older migrant...

Berkeley Police Allowed Antifa to Jump Barricades, Assault Demonstrators

August 28 - Berkeley police deliberately allowed masked “Antifa” anarchists to jump a barricade and attack a demonstration by a peaceful right-wing group on Sunday, leading to five assaults, including on Patriot Prayer group leader Joey Gibson. The counter-demonstration had reportedly been “largely peaceful” until that point. The police later defended their decision by arguing that keeping the anarchists out would have led to greater violence. There was “no need for a confrontation over a grass...

Indiana teacher asks first-graders to stop talking about God in class

August 30 - An Indiana elementary school teacher stirred controversy after sending a letter home to parents asking them to tell their children not to talk about God in the classroom. An unnamed first-grade teacher at McCordsville Elementary School sent a letter home to parents on Aug. 23 saying a group of about five students had mentioned the words “God, Jesus and Devil” during a conversation in class, and that it wasn’t the appropriate place to be holding a theological debate.

Americans Spend More on Taxes Than Food and Clothing Combined

August 30 - Americans on average spent more on taxes in 2016 than they did on food and clothing combined, according to data released this week by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The same data also shows that in three years—from 2013 to 2016—the average tax bill for Americans increased 41.13 percent. In 2016, according to BLS, “consumer units” (which include families, financially independent individuals, and people living in a single household who share expenses) spent more...

Greek Life retreat cancelled after banana peel found in tree

August 31 - A Greek Life retreat at the University of Mississippi (Ole Miss) was promptly cancelled this weekend after a banana peel was found hanging in a tree. “To be clear, many members of our community were hurt, frightened, and upset by what occurred at IMPACT,” Interim Director of Fraternity and Sorority Life Alexa Lee Arndt remarked in an email between Greek leaders, according to The Daily Mississippian. “Because of the underlying reality many students of color endure...

Alternative way to advance Trump agenda no one's talking about

August 23 - As President Trump and Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell clash over whether or not to trigger the so-called “nuclear option” – which would eliminate the Senate rules that enable the Democrat minority to obstruct legislation such as a repeal of Obamacare – a congressman is offering a third way. There’s an alternative to the binary choice of keeping the current Senate rules and the politically risky “nuclear option,” contended Republican Rep. Tom McClintock of California...

IRS again pressured to hammer U.S. churches

August 23 - The atheist Freedom From Religion Foundation is demanding – again – that the Internal Revenue Service revoke the tax-exempt status of churches whose ministers express an opinion about a moral issue or a candidate’s position that is deemed political. The lawsuit against President Trump and IRS Director John Koskinen says any consequent harm to churches is of no concern. But several pastors and other organizations that would be affected have filed a motion to have...

People Are Buying Confederate Flags in Droves as Race Debate Spreads Across the U.S.

August 23 - You can’t buy a Confederate flag from Amazon, Etsy or Walmart, but they’re available at Alabama Flag & Banner, which claims to be the only U.S.-based company manufacturing the rebel flag.

It's pretty much across the board, and it's trending in the wrong direction. Jobs have come back, but we haven't seen salaries rebound." Further, 59 percent of Americans making...

Barcelona Chief Rabbi to Jews: Get Out, Go To Israel

August 24 - Following the Barcelona terror attacks in which 14 people were killed and some 130 wounded, the Jewish Telegraphic Agency (JTA) asked the Spanish city's chief rabbi, Rabbi Meir Bar-Hen, what he thought of the future of Jews there. Generally speaking, European Jewish leaders are extremely cautious, and would seldom, if ever, dare to call upon Jews of their respective countries to pack their belongings and move to Israel. The negative backlash to Netanyahu urging Jews to leave...

Sears circling the drain? No, says Wall St.

August 24 - Sears Holdings said Thursday that it would close another 28 Kmart locations as it continues its cost-cutting campaign amid a precipitous decline in the department-store sector. The company also posted declining sales and profits, but the results outpaced analyst expectations and led to a surge in its stock price. The Kmart closures add to a list of 330 Sears or Kmart locations shuttered or set to be closed later this year as the retailer seeks stability. The chain said it would notify Kmart...

Kindergarteners Scared They Will Be 'Turned into Boys' After School's Transgender Celebration

August 23 - The parents of kindergarten students at a Rocklin, California school are outraged after a teacher staged a "transition ceremony" in class for a five-year-old boy without informing them.

Ankur Dhawan's 5-year-old daughter attended school that day and told her mother what happened in class. She said, 'Well, we learned about a girl in a boy's body...

California first-grader sent to principal’s office for misgendering classmate

August 23 - An elite charter school in California has been rocked by scandal since the end of the last school year, when a kindergarten teacher read her class a pair of books advocating transgender ideology, and a male kindergartener was reintroduced to the class as a girl.

ACLU admits to ‘white supremacy’ after tweeting photo of white baby with U.S. flag

August 23 - The American Civil Liberties Union backpedaled Wednesday on tweeting a photo of a white baby holding a U.S. flag after users called it racist. The seemingly harmless photo showed a blond-haired toddler in a “Free Speech - ACLU” onesie holding a U.S. flag and what appears to be a colorful toy dog. The tweet read, “This is the future that ACLU members want.” But users quickly accused the ACLU of promoting white supremacy — a point the organization apparently agreed with.

According to pro-life organization Operation Rescue, Atkins was at least six months...

LA Times: Charlottesville Car Attack Shows Need for More Gun Control

August 23 - The Los Angeles Times says the proper response to the Charlottesville car attack is more gun control. Breitbart News reported that House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wisc.), Charlottesville Mayor Mike Signer (D), Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D), and others have also discussed gun control in response to the Charlotte car attack. In the course of pushing gun control as a response to the car attack, the Times demonstrates a misunderstanding of the the source of rights...

Scott Baio: If Trump Cured Cancer, Hollywood Would Hate Him for ‘Putting Oncologists Out of Business’

August 23 - While several conservatives and Republicans in Hollywood are keeping quiet about their support for Donald Trump — especially in the wake of the violent protests in Charlottesville, Virginia, and the media’s assertion that the president did not condemn neo-Nazis and white supremacists fast enough — actor Scott Baio insists that “conservatives in Hollywood have had it.” “I don’t give a sh*t about Hollywood liberals,” Baio told The Hollywood Reporter, which contacted several...

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. A recent study in the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) journal Emerging Infectious Diseases tracked Texas typhus cases over a decade, revealing the number of diagnosed patients rose from 27 in 2003 to 222 in 2013. Geographically, it spread from nine to 41 counties, although the highest...

LGBT Advocates Praise Disney Preschool Cartoon for Featuring Lesbian Moms

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...

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.

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. The campaign can now start gathering the more than 585,000 signatures it will need to qualify for the 2018 ballot. The initiative would form a commission to recommend avenues for California to pursue its independence and delete part of the state constitution that says it is an inseparable part of the U.S.

Prof says criticizing 'safe space' culture led to dismissal

July 26 - A former adjunct professor at Johns Hopkins University says he was barred from his classroom and “treated...like a criminal” over a joke about a call center in Pakistan. Dr. Trent Bertrand, who taught international economics at Johns Hopkins University for six years before being suspended on December 6, opened up about his experiences in an essay published Wednesday by the James G. 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. State Senate President Pro Tem Kevin De Leon, D-Los Angeles, said his measure, Senate Bill 54 or the “California Values Act,” is intended to prevent state and local law enforcement from cooperating with what he calls the “Trump Deportation Machine”.

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 bill known as the Reproductive Health Equity Act was approved by the Oregon state Senate Wednesday in a 17-13 vote along party lines. It now heads to Democrat Gov. Kate Brown. The measure requires reproductive health be covered in all insurance plans at no cost to the patient regardless of income...

July 5 - The Boston Public Library is coming under fire after hosting a "Drag Queen Story Time" event for young children. On June 29, the library brought in the "The Boston Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence" - a group of drag queens who dress as Catholic Nuns – for a "storytime" with young children. The Boston Public Library facebook page put up a photo of the event. Two days before the event on June 27, a picture was posted by the "Children's Library, Boston Public Library" Facebook page.

Ann Coulter: Immigrant of the Week: Henry Bello (Obotetukudo)

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”.
