A group of Georgetown University students have asked the school's president to allow campus police to carry loaded firearms.

Doctor for Whom Asperger Syndrome Named Helped Nazis Kill Children

By Rick Pearcey • April 23, 2018, 11:46 AM

Tamar Lapin reports at the NYPost:

The Austrian doctor for whom Asperger syndrome is named helped the Nazis kill disabled children during World War II, according to a study published Thursday.

Hans Asperger, a pediatrician who first identified the syndrome in 1944, made good with the Nazis by referring children to one of their notorious euthanasia clinics, Medical University of Vienna medical historian Herwig Czech revealed in the journal Molecular Autism.

Nearly 800 children who didn't fit into the Third Reich's criteria of "worthy to live" -- meaning they lacked "racial purity" and "hereditary worthiness" -- died at the Am Spiegelgrund clinic in Vienna between 1940 and 1945. . . .

"The children, who had physical or psychological 'defects,' were deemed undesirable and were killed through starvation and lethal injection -- though their cause of death was reported as pneumonia," Lapin continues.

"While Asperger touted himself as having shielded his patients from the Nazi regime, he was a cog in its killing machine and was rewarded for his loyalty with career opportunities, Czech found," according to Lapin.

Asperger "was responsible for depriving of their liberty many children whom he deemed incapable of existing outside institutions," Lapin reports.

Rev. Graham to Trump: Please Help Army Chaplain Being Persecuted by LGBT Enforcers

By Rick Pearcey • April 20, 2018, 09:33 AM

Michael Chapman writes at CNSNews.com:

Evangelical Christian Rev. Franklin Graham called upon President Donald Trump "to do something about" an Army chaplain, who is a Baptist, and who faces "serious punishment" because he refused to allow a lesbian couple to participate in one of his marriage retreats. 

"Mr. President, I hope you will be able to do something about this," said Rev. Graham in an April 18 post on Facebook. "You are the commander in chief of the U.S. Armed Forces."

"Army Chaplain Scott Squires is being punished for doing his job," said Graham. "He's facing serious punishment for explaining to a soldier that he couldn't conduct a marriage retreat that would include same-sex couples -- because of his belief in the biblical definition of marriage. . . ."

"When Chaplain Squires realized that a same-sex couple wanted to participate in his marriage retreat, he explained they could not but he also sought to arrange a retreat for the couple with a chaplain who would allow their participation," Chapman writes. "However, this apparently was not acceptable to the lesbians and the pro-LGBT enforcers in the Army."

The Enemy in Our Schools: Should Anti-American Marxist Set History Curriculum for American Schools?

By Rick Pearcey • April 19, 2018, 11:34 AM

Lloyd Billingsley answers at Frontpagemag.com:

"If you’ve read Marx, there’s really no reason to read Howard Zinn," notes author Daniel Flynn, but many have read Zinn's million-selling A People’s History of the United States.

As Rutgers history professor David Greenberg notes in a 2013 New Republic article headlined "Agit-Prof," Zinn's famous book is "a pretty lousy piece of work."

Even so, it gets great reviews within a circle of Marxist academics such as Eric Foner, leftist rockers such as Rage Against the Machine, and actors such as Matt Damon, who in Good Will Hunting tells his psychiatrist that A People’s History will "knock you on your a--."

For Howard Zinn, America was evil and capitalism bad -- except for his lucrative publishing deal, and prestigious professorship at Boston University. Zinn was pretty quiet about the Soviet Union and what he might have done during the Stalin-Hitler Pact, but Mao Tse-Tung's China was the closest thing to a "people's government."

Eric Holder: "I'm Thinking About" Running for President

By Rick Pearcey • April 18, 2018, 10:45 AM

On MSNBC: "I'm thinking about it but I've not made any determinations" -- Newsmax.

No worries for Eric running for prez. Comey's already written the exoneration letter.

Plus, Eric could pardon Jimmy.

Victory is well-nigh assured, of course. For one thing, Brennan's support should garner most of the Communist U.S.A. vote.

By the way, Comey reminds me of the Washington Generals.

Wells Fargo Stems the Tide: Not a Bank's Job to Set U.S. Gun Policy

By Rick Pearcey • April 16, 2018, 08:57 AM

A.W.R. Hawkins reports at Breitbart:

Wells Fargo stemmed the tide of the push for new financial restrictions on gun makers and sellers by stressing that it is not a bank's job to set U.S. gun policy.

Wells Fargo believes firearm policy is a debate for Congress instead.

According to Reuters, Wells Fargo CEO John Shrewsberry said, "The best way to make progress on these issues is through the political and legislative process. In the meantime, Wells Fargo is engaging our customers that legally manufacture firearms and other stakeholders on what we can do together to promote better gun safety in our communities."

"Wells Fargo's refusal to place new regulations or stipulations on legal firearm manufacturers represents a break with Citigroup and Bank of America," Hawkins writes.

Unrest on the campus of Florida Atlantic University reached a crescendo recently when students crashed a faculty meeting there to protest a conservative professor at that school, Marshall DeRosa.

In a phone interview with The College Fix, DeRosa said that the protesting students "want my scalp in order to say conservatives, shut the hell up."

"It's a poisoned atmosphere for conservatives, and especially Christian conservatives," he added.

Biggest Black Lives Matter Facebook Page Is Fake -- Report

By Rick Pearcey • April 10, 2018, 10:49 AM

Simon Kent reports at Breitbart:

An Australian trade union organizer has been suspended amid claims he ran a fake Black Lives Matter Facebook page that siphoned off hundreds of thousands of dollars in donations.

The page garnered almost 700,000 followers -- dwarfing the Black Lives Matter movement's official page -- before it was suspended by Facebook. 

It is alleged some of the bank accounts where the money was transferred were in Australia and it was unclear how much was provided to genuine causes -- if at all.

The scam site is claimed to have collected money through online fundraisers and solicited more than $US100,000 in donations, according to a CNN report..

"Ian MacKay, the official in question, worked at the hard left National Union of Workers and has dozens of websites related to black rights registered under his name, including blackpowerfist.com," according to Breitbart.

"Mr. Mackay did not respond to questions from CNN but said, 'My domain name buying and selling is a personal hobby'," Kent reports.

Hungarians Defy Soros, Give Crushing Win to Pro-Christian Viktor Orban

By Rick Pearcey • April 9, 2018, 03:59 PM

Michael Brown writes at LifeSiteNews.com:

If the Huffington Post is to be believed, a bigoted Prime Minister in Hungary is leading the nation in a dangerous, ultra-right direction, to the consternation of the populace.

If the election results are to be believed, a courageous Hungarian leader is standing against a sea of political correctness, with the support of the populace.

I'd say in this case, the Hungarian people have a better sense of reality than does the Huffington Post.

"Sunday's elections resulted in a decisive win for Prime Minister Viktor Orban and his Fidesz party. (This will mark Orban's third consecutive term)," Brown continues.

"It was also a victory against Hungarian-born billionaire George Soros, who actively supported the opposition liberal (and globalist) candidates. That's why," Brown writes, "a Breitbart headline proclaimed, "Bloody Nose for Brussels: Landslide Triumph as Anti-Globalist, Anti-Soros Orban Wins Third Term in Hungary."

"We Might Kill You": Georgia Sheriff Warns Lawless Visitors

Shefiff Mike Jolley of Harris County, Ga., has a new welcome sign that reads:

Our citizens have concealed weapons.

If you kill someone, we might kill you back.

We have ONE jail and 356 cemeteries.

Enjoy your stay!

"I spent 20 years in the army to give everyone the right to disagree with me or anyone else," Jolley told Fox & Friends in 2015, according to Fox News. "If they disagree, they can voice that opinion. But if it offends them, truly offends them, maybe they're in the wrong country."

Media's Deafening Silence on the YouTube Shooter

By Rick Pearcey • April 5, 2018, 12:50 PM

Why the silence? Because a "vegan animal rights activist doesn't fit the agenda," states the kicker at Frontpagemag.com.

Lloyd Billingsley writes:

For the first time in its history, gunshots rang out at YouTube headquarters in San Bruno, California, on Tuesday. Three people had been hit and the shooter was dead, but the motive for the attack remained mysterious. Even so, gun-control barker Sen. Dianne Feinstein was quick to weigh in.

"Only in America is a shooter unleashing gunfire in an office building a common occurrence," the California Democrat said in a statement. "Only in America are people evacuating the scene of a shooting with their hands on their heads is a familiar sight."

Like fellow Democrats Nancy Pelosi and Jackie Speier, Feinstein mentioned nothing about the shooter. The old-line establishment media were expecting a Republican male, an NRA member with a MAGA hat out to take down Hillary voters.

"As it turned out, the shooter was a woman and not a right-wing conservative type at all. In fact," Billingsley notes, "it wasn't even close."

Police: Man Exposes Himself to a Child in Target Store Women's Bathroom

By Rick Pearcey • April 4, 2018, 12:20 PM

Warner Todd Huston writes at Breitbart:

Chicago police are investigating a report that a man entered the women's bathroom and exposed himself to a little girl in a South Loop location, ABC 5 reported.

A woman and her daughter reported that the man walked in on them in the women's bathroom of the Target store at 1154 S. Clark just after 4 PM on March 25.

He told them he had to use the restroom, the woman said, but instead, he pushed his way into the stall her daughter was using and pulled down his pants in front of the child. He then fled, the mother told police.

Shapiro: Fake Media Go Nuts After Sinclair Anchors Read Anti-Fake News Message

By Rick Pearcey • April 2, 2018, 01:04 PM

Ben Shapiro writes at DailyWire:

Over the weekend, mass panic broke out among media types over Sinclair Broadcasting's use of local anchors across the country to push out a message about the prevalence of unvetted stories on social media.

After providing video of the Sinclair message -- and a transcript -- Shapiro offers this analysis:

Now, here's the thing: the actual text of this universally-issued missive has nothing to do with Trump. Go ahead. Check it. There's nothing about Trump there.

And complaints about one-sided news and "sharing of false and biased" news on social media have been absolutely common on the Left. If this same message were read by Brian Stelter on CNN, word for word, nobody would have any problem with it.

The media are simply assuming that the message is pro-Trump because Sinclair's owners are pro-Trump. But the ads aren't for Trump: they're a plea for viewers to keep watching rather than turning off the TV and using Facebook for news consumption -- the exact same plea made every day in the pages of The New York Times, at MSNBC, and in the halls of Congress by Democrats who claim that social media won Trump the election.

"The leftist media's universal rush to condemn Sinclair for the message is actually more lockstep political than Sinclair's message, which is lockstep but not political," Shapiro continues.

"Kimmel's tweet is actually more telling than it looks: all the statements about Sinclair being 'dangerous for our democracy' are just as collectivized and unanimous, and far more political, than Sinclair's top-down edict to read an apolitical message on air," Shapiro concludes.

By the way, a "majority of Americans -- 77 percent -- said traditional news outlets are 'fake news,' according to a Monmouth University poll published Monday," the Washington Times reports today.

The need for honest, objective reporting -- that is, real journalism -- is greater than ever.

NYTimes Bans "Killing the Deep State" From Bestseller List

By Rick Pearcey • March 30, 2018, 01:29 PM

Newsmax reports:

Jerome Corsi's red-hot new book "Killing the Deep State: The Fight to Save President Trump" is a runaway bestseller -- but you'd never know that from reading The New York Times.

"Killing the Deep State" debuted last week at No. 10 on the non-fiction hardcover list compiled by Nielsen BookScan, the book industry's only nationally recognized sales tracking list.

And yet, the influential New York Times Book Review inexplicably has not listed "Deep State" on its hardcover bestseller list, despite the fact it outsold many of the books that did make its list.

"For example," Newsmax continues, "going by sales reported by Nielsen, 'Killing the Deep State' should have landed at No. 4 on the Times' April 1 list of its Top 15 print hardcover bestsellers, right after Tara Westover's 'Educated' (Random House).

"But instead, the Times' No. 4 spot is held by 'I'll Be Gone in the Dark,' by Michelle McNamara, (Harper) even though it sold hundreds of copies less than 'Deep State,' did."

According to Newsmax, "'Killing the Deep State' also sold substantially more copies than the 11 other books on the list, including such titles as 'Obama' by Pete Souza, 'Leonardo Da Vinci' by Walter Isaacson, and 'Born a Crime' by Trevor Noah."

Submissive Sharia Canada: Police Investigating After Ex-Muslim Rips Qur'an

By Rick Pearcey • March 28, 2018, 10:56 AM

Robert Spencer writes at Frontpagemag.com:

Global News reported Sunday that "Peel Regional Police say they are investigating an incident as 'hate-motivated' after a woman can be seen on video at a Mississauga Islamic centre appearing to tear the pages of a Qur'an and putting the pages on cars while calling the religious text 'Satanic.'" So apparently now it's a crime in Canada to rip the Qur'an, and even to think ill of it.

This is not the most effective way to call attention to the exhortations to violence and hatred that are within the Qur'an. It allows the Muslims at the Dar Al-Tawheed Islamic Centre, where this incident took place, to play the role of the victim, which they are doing to the hilt in the wake of this incident, and which we have seen that Muslim spokesmen are all too eager to play -- victimhood, after all, is currency in today's society. . . .

Is tearing up a book a crime? Is leaving paper on someone's car a crime? The only crime here is that the woman who did this, an ex-Muslim named Sandra Solomon, is protesting against a protected victim group that is eager to seize upon anything that it can portray as a "hate crime," so as to buttress its claims to be victims of widespread "Islamophobia," persecution and harassment, and thus in need of special consideration and accommodation.

"So -- Sandra Solomon was rude and obnoxious," Spencer continues. "She called the Qur'an a 'Satanic, evil book.' She said other Islamic books were 'garbage.'

"This is all reported in this article as if it is evidence of a crime," Spencer notes. "But is thinking negatively about the Qur'an and Islam really a crime in Canada? It may be: after the passage of the 'anti-Islamophobia' motion M-103, there is no certainty that Canada guarantees the freedom of speech."

O Khanada: "But disliking the Qur'an and Islam, and tearing the Qur'an, are actually only crimes under Islamic law," Spencer writes. "Is Canada now adopting Sharia blasphemy laws? We shall see, in the way Canadian authorities treat this case."

Tennessee Passes Bill: "In God We Trust" in Every Public School

By Rick Pearcey • March 26, 2018, 01:22 PM

Michael Chapman reports at CNSNews:

The Tennessee legislature has passed a bill that would require all public schools in the state to display the words "In God We Trust" in a prominent location. The governor, Republican Bill Haslam is expected to sign the legislation into law very soon.

The bill, HB 2368, was sponsored by state Rep. Susan Lynn (R). According to the website of the Tennessee General Assembly, the "National Motto in the Classroom Act" would require "each local education agency to display the national motto, 'In God We Trust,' in a prominent location in each school."

"Our national motto is on our money," said Rep. Lynn. "It's on our license plates. It's part of our national anthem. Our national motto and founding documents are the cornerstone of freedom and we should teach our children about these things."

"Placing the motto on American currency was established by Congress in 1864," Chapman reports. "

"The first coins with 'In God We Trust' inscribed on them were the one- and two-cent coins in 1864, "Chapman continues. "Since 1938, all U.S. coins bear the motto, according to the Treasury Department. Congress declared 'In God We Trust' as the nation's motto in 1956."

Evil Rules: Trump Just Kept One of Hillary Clinton's Darkest Campaign Promises

By Rick Pearcey • March 23, 2018, 05:49 PM

Peter Hasson reports at the Daily Caller:

President Donald Trump and congressional Republicans broke their promise to conservative voters by giving Planned Parenthood approximately $500 million in taxpayer funding in the omnibus spending bill that Trump signed into law on Friday.

Trump, Speaker of the House Paul Ryan and other Republican leaders promised their voters for years that they would defund Planned Parenthood if given the chance to govern. . .

Fulfills Hillary Clinton's Promise: "The spending bill breaks Trump's campaign promise to his voters, but it does fulfill a promise that his Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton, made on the campaign trail in 2016," Hasson writes.

"Clinton promised to continue funding Planned Parenthood’s funding if elected president, while Trump assured his voters that he would defund the abortion giant if he won," Hasson reports.

According to CNSNews, "The latest annual report of Planned Parenthood, for 2016-17, shows that it performed 321,384 abortions in its fiscal year that ended Sept. 30, 2016."

Austin Serial Bomber Unmasked

By Rick Pearcey • March 21, 2018, 10:58 AM

Bradford Betz and Elizabeth Zwirz report at Fox News:

The serial bomber who terrorized Austin, Texas for three harrowing weeks was identified Wednesday morning -- just hours after he blew himself to bits with his own device as cops closed in.

Mark Anthony Conditt, 24, was named as the bomber, an ATF source told Fox News. A picture of Conditt in 2013 from his mother's Facebook page was authenticated by The Austin-American Statesman.

Conditt was killed near the motel he was traced to by authorities using surveillance footage from a Federal Express drop-off store and cell phone triangulation technology, according to The Austin American-Statesman.

He died after fleeing the motel in a car, with police hot on his tail. He drove into a ditch, sparking the fatal confrontation . . .

Abortionist: I Cut the Vocal Cord So the Baby Can't Scream

By Rick Pearcey • March 20, 2018, 09:06 AM

Michael Chapman reports at CNSNews.com:

Dr. Leah Torres, an OB/GYN in Salt Lake City, Utah, said that when she performs certain abortions she cuts the vocal cord of the baby so "there's really no opportunity" for the child to scream. She also described herself as a "uterus ripper outer" because she performs hysterectomies.

Torres made her disturbing comments on Twitter on March 11, in response to a question.  

As the tweets show, @ZarbaNotZorba asked Torres about the aborted babies: "Do you hear their heartbeats when you lay down at night? Do you hear their screams?"

Torres replied, "No. You know fetuses can't scream, right? I transect the cord 1st so there's really no opportunity, if they're even far enough along to have a larynx."

"I won't apologize for performing medicine," Torres says, according to CNSNews.

Perhaps lost on the good "doctor" is that killing patients or innocents is not medicine, it's an inhumane and monstrous barbarism that contradicts humanness and love.

Real physicians are aware, of course, that hysterectomies are performed to save women, not to kill them.

First, Torres rips apart the language, then she rips apart the human being. I ask you, O Executioner, how long have you been a member of the Mengele Society?

74% of Americans: Deep State Exists

By Rick Pearcey • March 19, 2018, 02:28 PM

John Nolte writes at Breitbart:

With the news that 74 percent of Americans believe a Deep State exists, a Monmouth University poll reveals just how little influence the disgraced national media have over public opinion and perception.

The Deep State, which is correctly defined in the polling question as "a group of unelected or appointed government officials who have too much influence in determining federal policy," has been a national issue since the rise of President Donald Trump. Ever since this conversation started, though, the media have been slashing away at the discussion as a fevered conspiracy ginned up by conservatives.

The media pushback has obviously failed because there is no notable partisan distinction in the poll. Monmouth reports, "This is a worrisome finding. The strength of our government relies on public faith in protecting our freedoms, which is not particularly robust. And it's not a Democratic or Republican issue. These concerns span the political spectrum."

Moreover, only 21 percent think the Deep State does not exist.

Just as concerning is this, from Monmouth: "Fully 8-in-10 believe that the U.S. government currently monitors or spies on the activities of American citizens."

Something's Wrong: Ohio Student Suspended for Staying in Class During National Walkout Day

By Rick Pearcey • March 16, 2018, 05:49 PM

Caleb Parke reports at Fox News:

An Ohio high school student said he tried to stay apolitical during the National Walkout Day over gun violence but was suspended for his choice to remain in a classroom instead of joining protests or the alternative, going to study hall.

Jacob Shoemaker, a senior at Hilliard Davidson High School, said he didn't want to take sides in the gun-control debate consuming the country. If he went outside for the walkout, he said, he would be supporting gun control. If he stayed in the common area of the school, he said, he would be seen as supporting gun violence and disrespecting the 17 lives lost in the Parkland, Fla. High school shooting the month before.

Jacob had met with the school's principal on Tuesday, a day before the rally, for about an hour to find out what exactly the walkout was supporting. But he said the principal reportedly told him it was for the "students to express themselves."

"This left Jacob wondering if it was a memorial for the lives lost or a show of support for gun control," Fox News continues.

The senior student "decided, instead, to stay in class for about 20 minutes doing homework after his teacher and fellow classmates left and locked the door," Fox reports. But "when they returned, he was slapped with a suspension."

Trump Sanctions Russian Nationals for Meddling in 2016 Presidential Election

By Rick Pearcey • March 15, 2018, 12:53 PM

Saagar Enjeti reports at the Daily Caller:

President Donald Trump’s administration will sanction 19 Russian nationals for meddling in the 2016 presidential election, multiple senior national security officials told reporters Thursday morning.

The sanctions will also target Russian nationals and entities for cyber attacks on the U.S. energy grid along with other U.S. based companies and persons.

"The sanctions include new authorities granted to the U.S. government under the Countering America's Adversaries Act, passed by Congress over the summer," the DC continues.

"Officials stressed that the announced sanctions are not the only actions the U.S. government will take in response to Russian activity," Enjeti reports. "The sanctions come as the U.S. joined the heads of European security agencies in calling out Russia for a nerve agent attack in the U.K."

Hillary Failing: Democrats Lose Patience After Clinton Comments Trashing White Married Women

By Rick Pearcey • March 14, 2018, 03:02 PM

Brooke Singman reports at Fox News:

Democrats who typically fall into the Clinton camp are trashing the two-time failed presidential candidate for singling out white female Trump voters, blaming their ballots cast in 2016 on "pressure" from male figures in their lives.

From Democratic senators to even her former campaign manager, there is a seeming consensus across the board that even "sugarcoating" her comments this week [doesn't] make them any easier to swallow.

"During former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's appearance in India over the weekend, she claimed she lost the 2016 presidential race in part because white women didn't stand up to the men in their lives pressuring them to vote for Donald Trump," Singman writes.

"We do not do well with white men and we don't do well with married, white women," Clinton said," according to Singman. "And part of that is an identification with the Republican Party, and a sort of ongoing pressure to vote the way your husband, your boss, your son, whoever, believes you should."

Disney Bigots Strip "Wrinkle in Time" of Christianity and It Bombs

By Rick Pearcey • March 12, 2018, 05:12 PM

John Nolte begins at Breitbart:

The trailer for director Ana Duvernay's A Wrinkle In Time looks awful -- empty and bloated. According to Rotten Tomatoes, most mainstream reviewers of the Disney flick, those predisposed to give a black, female director like DuVernay every benefit of the doubt, found the movie to be a diet of empty calories.

Thanks to alternative media, the reason for this might come from Disney's decision to strip Wrinkle of its central theme -- Christianity.

Nolte's concluding words:

Normal Americans do not care about skin color. We are over it and see no reason to celebrate something as middle-aged as "diverse casting." Christianity, however, is timeless.

Moreover, to remove Christianity from the movie, most especially when it is so integral to the original story, is not an act of inclusiveness, but rather another bigoted and hostile act from an increasingly provincial and small-minded entertainment industry.

Nancy Pearcey Speaking at Heritage Foundation

Nancy will be speaking on her new book Love Thy Body next week March 13 at the Heritage Foundation. The event will be live streamed.

From the announcement at the Heritage website:

Many people absorb pre-packaged media mantras on watershed moral issues without being aware of their hurtful real-world implications.

In Love Thy Body, best-selling author Nancy Pearcey goes beyond politically correct talking points to examine the dehumanizing secularist ethos that shapes critical moral and socio-political issues of our day.

Formerly an agnostic, she argues that secularism denigrates the body and destroys the basis for human rights.

In Love Thy Body, Pearcey sets forth a holistic and humane alternative available to all -- one that offers reality-oriented solutions that embrace the dignity of the human body and provide a sustainable basis for inalienable human rights.

The event is hosted by Becky Norton Dunlop, the Ronald Reagan Distinguished Fellow at the Heritage Foundation.

SS University: Campus Fascism on the March

By Rick Pearcey • March 7, 2018, 05:42 PM

At the NYPost:

Another day, another campus fascist assault, this time aimed at squelching the speech of center-right Christina Hoff Sommers.

Sommers, an American Enterprise Institute scholar, argues that much of modern feminism betrays the movement's founding ideals. The lefty kids think that's violence.

She was invited to speak Monday about trigger warnings and safe spaces at Lewis & Clark Law School in Portland, Ore. But the space didn't prove safe for her.

Read more about this ugliness and apparently pathetic "law" "school" here and then consider: "It's time for Congress to start withholding federal funds from colleges that don't adopt clear rules to protect free speech -- and punish those who disrupt it."

Campuses have become seedbed of fanaticism. If you don't want secularist-religious-political fanatics running our country -- and turning it into more of an intellectual, social, and ethical hellhole than certain parts of it already is -- then it really is time for people of good will and sound principles to step up and end the utter stupidity and inhumanity that passes for learning and education at far too many campuses across America today.

Lions 700, Christians 0: What Marx Got Right -- and What the "Religious" Get Wrong

By Rick Pearcey • March 6, 2018, 12:26 PM

I committed strategic analysis on my Facebook page yesterday. Here's proof:

Why do some people (who call themselves Christians, and I suppose at some time understood they're still human) insist on living inside a "spiritual" closet the Biblical information knows nothing about?

The knowable and publicly actionable Creator gives us fields, bodies, minds. He creates a world, not a closet.

No rock, plant, dog or human is supposed to live in there.

Marx said, "The philosophers have only interpreted the world, in various ways; the point is to change it." This emphasis is partly why the cultural Marxists are winning.

Despite having an inhumane philosophy, Marxists etc. nevertheless are out there changing the world. Their "change" encompasses people AND structures.

In contrast, many Christians are stuck inside their spiritual closets. There is much activity in there. And some of it is very good. But by and large too many are neglecting the still-operative Creator-endowed human-calling to change the world.

So instead of changing the world, they're changing the closet.

They're making "disciples" and then sticking those folks inside the closet to be spiritual until they die.

Perhaps a variety of religious opiates comforts them. Because it is painful for humans to try live inside a tiny, inhumane closet instead of running outside to incarnate the wholistic and liberating information given in the Biblical data.

Meanwhile, if I'm a secularist, I try to keep this strategic arrangement unnoticed and in play until the cows come home.

After about one quarter of this football game, the score's 700 to 0 -- it's a little bit easier to win when you're the only team on the field. It's not that difficult to defeat a team that stays in the dressing room. Even if it's deeply engaged in spiritual activities in there, with lots of goosebumps.

Yes, the secularists have their setbacks. The natives get restless, as it were.

But strategically -- culturally, politically, educationally, and across the society -- by and large, for Marxists and other secularists, it's the smell of victory in the morning.

"Stop Blaming White People" Sign Causes Stir at N.J. Post Office

By Rick Pearcey • March 5, 2018, 02:24 PM

Well, for one thing, the sign was way too uppity. As Taylor Tiamoyo Harris reports at nj.com:

USPS Postal Inspector Greg Kliemisch said Friday afternoon the sign, which read "March is national stop blaming white people month! Accept responsibility for your own bad choices. Hug a white person!," was put up sometime Thursday. It was taken down in the afternoon by employees, he said.

That message was way too uppity.

So what can we do?

Try this: "We could stop racism, evil, and whitey if we just outlawed and removed all pigmentative words from the human language. The UN could do it -- It really could!"

I posted the above on Twitter some 2 hours ago, and the UN has yet to act.  

I'll say this once and only once: I will not go back to the UN until they a) take up my Twitter recommendation for stopping racism and b) pass news laws to show they're serious about racism.

Think of it as word control. It goes without saying that letting a compassionate planetary government control our speech is worth it if just one person can be saved from ugly racism.

Don't make me go on CNN.

Gun Seller Calls Out Dick's Sporting Goods on AR-15s

By Rick Pearcey • March 2, 2018, 02:47 PM

Scott Morefield reports at the Daily Caller:

One gun seller isn't happy with Dick's Sporting Goods decision to agree to the demands of gun control advocates.

Palmetto State Armory, a Columbia, South Carolina-based firearms company, went on record in support of the Second Amendment on Thursday, issuing a statement calling out Dick's for referring to the AR platform as an "assault rifle" instead of the correct term — Armalite Rifle — and for caving to the demands of gun control proponents.

The Palmetto State Armory statement was a strong rejection of the propensity to blame the "tool" instead of the perpetrator, and included a call to "approach this negativity with humanity" with the hope that both sides can "have a civil and intellectual conversation that continues to make this amazing country better."

What follows is the Palmetto State Armory statement, as published at WCBD -- TV Channel 2 in Mount Pleasant, S.C.:

Palmetto State Armory [PSA] would like to go on record stating that we support the Second Amendment. While this may seem like an obvious statement, we as a company felt it necessary to make our opinion known to the general public. Palmetto State Armory also strongly supports the First Amendment which enables individuals to voice their opinions, even those in contrast with our own. We believe that a primary purpose of the Second Amendment is actually to protect the First Amendment.

In regards to the actions taken today by the CEO of Dick's Sporting Goods to no longer sell the AR-15 platform, while we do not agree with this decision, we recognize the fact that capitalism gives him the right to make this call. PSA however, does have an issue when misinformation is spread in the very next sentence by referring to the platform as an "assault rifle." AR stands for Armalite Rifle which pays homage to the company that originally created the platform.

To blame the rifle or a high capacity magazine for the actions of an evil man is illogical and is only applied when referring to firearms. Senseless acts of violence are a terrible plague on society that we all recognize we need to try and prevent as a community, but to blame a tool such as a firearm is at very best missing the point of the problem.

When a vehicle is used to commit an act of violence we as a society do not blame the car, we do not blame the speed, or the steering wheel, but rather the driver. It is our hopes that we can approach this negativity with humanity and both sides of the argument can come together and have a civil and intellectual conversation that continues to make this amazing county better.

"We are all in this together, and we all want the same thing," the Palmetto statement concludes. "Safety, happiness, and the 'American Dream'."

UTexas Students Launching "No Whites Allowed" Magazine

By Rick Pearcey • March 1, 2018, 01:51 PM

"A group of students at the University of Texas, San Antonio, plans to start publishing a No Whites Allowed (NWA) magazine," Mitchell Gunter reports at Campus Reform.

"White people are welcome to attend the launch party Thursday night, but while their support is 'appreciated,' the founders insist that 'it's a zine for QPOC and by QPOC [queer persons of color]'," according to Campus Reform.

Well, bless their little racist hearts. That's mighty "white" of them magazine starters, welcoming students who fail the QPOC color test and all. Will them white peeples hav to go out back to drink some water?

So what we have is a two-fer: Good old Racism (whites not allowed) and updated but still plain old-fashioned deviancy (queer persons).

Have you noticed how you can narrative this jive and cover a whole lotta sins by calling perversity diversity? Even more trans-rational magic drops when you hit a few licks about how this stuff boils down to "social constructs."

Smack in some "liberation" crack and, man, you've got yourself a cult that can go on forever and ever. Well, until you step outside and gravity hits. Confirming what all cultists know: "Facts are evil."

So if you want to embrace new and regressive forms of inhumane extremism beyond the KKK, the BBB (BlackBlackBlack) and the QQQ (QueerQueerQueer), certain students at the University of Texas at San Antonio may be just the folks for you.

Now there's no reason to get upset about this. It's just a little bit of cancer, and doctors are always saying that a little bit of cancer is no big deal.

16 Stupidest Comments About the Parkland Shooting Massacre (So Far)

By Rick Pearcey • February 28, 2018, 10:44 AM

John Nolte writes at Breitbart:

In the wake of the Parkland school shooting massacre, and in order to deflect away from the only answer to this contagion of school shootings (which of course is hardening school security), our media and the left in general have to manufacture one stupid hour after another in order to keep the focus on gun-grabbing.

The results of this cynical and desperate crusade have not only exposed these provincial elites as completely opposed to keeping our children safe, but as liars, and morons.

The Left's Strategic Objective in Their War on the NRA

By Rick Pearcey • February 26, 2018, 09:47 AM

Steven McCann writes at American Thinker:

The litany of major American companies severing their ties to the NRA continues to expand.

They are succumbing to the drumbeat of false accusations and hysteria ginned up by the left and its political arm, the Democratic Party, as well as the left's cohorts in the media.  

The NRA has been in leftists' crosshairs for the past two decades.  

However, the actual purpose of this targeting is far deeper than what the left proclaims to be its objective: the passage of "commonsense" gun laws and restrictions on gun ownership as an antidote to gun violence.

The Propagandists: CNN Anchor Drops All Pretense of Being Fair and Objective on Gun Control

By Rick Pearcey • February 21, 2018, 03:19 PM

Susan Jones writes at CNSNews.com:

Quivering with indignation, CNN's Alisyn Camerota "moderated" an on-air debate Tuesday morning between two Republicans with differing views on gun control.

But to Camerota, there is only one righteous side, and she defended it with all the passion of an activist.

Former U.S. Rep. David Jolly (R-Fla.) is a gun control advocate; Former Rep. Jack Kingston (R-Ga.) had the nerve to suggest that the newly minted student activists from Parkland, Florida may have had help from outside groups in coordinating their gun control campaign.

When you view the video embedded in this story, you see that CNN's Alisyn Camerota functions not as a debate moderator but as a committed advocate for the gun control side of the debate.

There is no problem with people arguing for gun control. There is a problem when a journalist who is supposed to be neutral and objective in fact argues and supports a particular position in a debate.

Umpires in baseball are tasked with calling balls and strikes. They are not tasked with rooting for a particular team to win and to shape their calls accordingly. That would be unfair and cheating.

Camerota's unfortunate performance is evidence for the proposition that much of the so-called MSM (mainstream media) has degenerated into MSP (mainstream propaganda).

Perhaps her perfomance is one reason CNN has "deep credibility problems" -- with some 50% of Americans answering "no" when polled on whether they "trust CNN to give you objective news and analysis."

Our role as viewers -- as human beings with free and inquiring minds -- is to think critically about whatever is being presented as news.

No matter the source of information (whether "trusted" or not), blind trust is beneath who we are as human beings designed to live and think free by a verifiable and knowable (and by no means "religious" as "faith" is so often categorized today) Creator.

KKKabortion: ACLU, Planned Parenthood Fight for "Absolute Right" to Abortion Based on Race, Down Syndrome

By Rick Pearcey • February 20, 2018, 03:45 PM

Mark Hodges reports at LifeSiteNews.com:

Planned Parenthood and the ACLU are fighting at a federal appeals court for the right to provide abortions based on the baby's race, sex, or diagnosis of possible Down syndrome.

The two organizations are opposing an Indiana law, signed by then-Gov. Mike Pence in 2016, that bans aborting a baby because of race, color, national origin, ancestry, sex, or diagnosis of a possible disability. The law also says aborted babies’ remains must be cremated or buried.

"We are talking about an absolute prohibition. . . . The woman has an absolute right as part of her privacy interests," Ken Falk, legal director of the ACLU of Indiana, told the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals during oral arguments on Thursday, according to WFYI Indianapolis. . . .

"Pro-lifers often point out the majority of Planned Parenthood affiliates are in minority neighborhoods, and PP founder Margaret Sanger initiated a campaign to eliminate 'undesirables,' including specifically targeting African American babies," Hodges continues.

"The U.S. Centers for Disease Control admits that while 13 percent of U.S. citizens are black, a wildly disproportionate 35 percent of abortions are committed against black babies," Hodges reports.

The FBI failed to investigate warnings about the Florida school shooter, but never mind that. And the National Rifle Association has no control over school shootings, but never mind that, either.

Two newly minted gun control activists from Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida are defending the FBI, while demanding that NRA "child murderers" dismantle and disband. And they have declined an invitation to discuss their concerns with President Donald Trump, whom they call "disgusting."

An American flag at a high school in Southwest Utah was found destroyed and replaced with an ISIS flag Thursday, Fox 13 reported.

The American flag was left shredded at the scene.

The words "ISIS is COMI" had been spray-painted on a wall on the school's east side, KUTV reported.

WALGREENS UNSAFE: Follows Target in Letting Men Who Say They're "Women" Into Women's Bathrooms

By Rick Pearcey • February 14, 2018, 09:34 AM

Mark Hodges reports at LifeSiteNews:

Walgreens has adopted a transgender bathroom policy that allows men in the women's toilets and vice versa, despite that same policy creating a public relations disaster and financial free fall for Target Corporation.

As of November 2017, Walgreens' 8,100 stores welcome "all individuals . . . to use restroom facilities that correspond to the individual's gender identity, regardless of the individual's sex assigned at birth." . . .

The American Family Association (AFA) reports that the new Walgreens pro-transgender policy is the result of pressure from the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Southern California after a customer was not allowed to use a Walgreens women’s bathroom. . . .

Breitbart reported that Walgreens "bowed to pressure immediately."

"As the AFA did in response to Target's 2015 transgender changing rooms and bathrooms policy, the family defender created a petition to oppose Walgreen's policy," LifeSiteNews continues.

"Walgreens' store policy endangers women and children by allowing men to frequent women's restrooms," the petition states, according to LifeSiteNews.

The petition also "has more than 82,000 signatures," LifeSite reports.

"Walgreens' new policy could potentially result in female customers becoming victims of voyeurism, sexual assault and physical attack. Walgreens must immediately reverse its dangerous policy that allows men unrestricted access into women's restrooms," the petition also states, according to LifeSiteNews. 

As points of action, AFA "urges concerned citizens to call Walgreens and voice their objection (1-800-925-4733), and/or call their local Walgreens store," LifeSiteNews reports.

Kim Jong-un's Smiling Sister Oversees Brutal Regime's Propaganda Machine

By Rick Pearcey • February 12, 2018, 02:40 PM

Kim Yo-jong -- the younger sister of the North Korea dictator Kim Jong-un -- did a super job of smiling her way "through breathess media coverage" during her three-day propaganda visit to the Winter Olympics now taking place in South Korea.

Even as she was turning the heads of American media stalwarts such as CNN and the New York Times, she "heads up the regime's department responsible for lying to its people about the behavior of a regime whose atrocities have been described as 'without parallel in the modern world'," Patrick Goodenough reports at CNSNews.com.

Outrage at Bette Midler Over Call for Rand Paul's Neighbor to Attack Him Again

By Rick Pearcey • February 9, 2018, 12:11 PM

Sasha Savitsky reports at Fox News:

Bette Midler shocked the Twitterverse on Thursday with a post suggesting Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., should be physically attacked for his stance on spending budget in Senate.

Midler tweeted Thursday evening, "Where's Rand Paul's neighbor when we need him?"

What is it with these Hollywood people?

First, Weinstein. Then Tarantino. And now Bette Midler.

Whether it's abortion, imposing counterfeit "marriage," sexually assaulting women, putting actors into life-threatening film-shoot scenarios, or calling for physical attacks on a U.S. senator, something seems seriously out of whack with this community of the rich and famous who constantly promote each other as loving, open-minded, and tolerant.

Perhaps I overstate. Let's try again: Apart from the killing, counterfeiting, sexually assaulting, disrespecting, and calls to punish others physically and violently over policy differences, this community is no doubt a swell bunch of well-adjusted folk with only the best interests of others always at heart.

Finally, as T.J. Eckert responded to Midler on Twitter: "So much for love trumps hate."

Northeastern Prof on Trump: "I Wouldn't Mind Seeing Him Dead"

By Rick Pearcey • February 8, 2018, 12:47 PM

Jessica Chasmar reports at the WTimes:

A professor at Northeastern University in Boston is under fire after he was recorded during a public lecture saying he "wouldn't mind" seeing President Trump dead.

"Sometimes I want to just see him impeached. Other times, quite honestly -- I hope there are no FBI agents here -- I wouldn't mind seeing him dead," Barry Bluestone, a professor of political economy, said during a Jan. 31 public event called "The Rule of Law in a Time of Polarization," Campus Reform first reported.

"Of natural causes," he later clarified with the help of journalist Robert Kuttner.

"Mr. Bluestone's remarks were recorded in a YouTube video uploaded by the school on Monday, but it has since been deleted," according to the Times.

"In my opinion, Trump is the most dangerous man on the planet because of his power of using lies and half-truths to galvanize his supporters and his ability to command vast military resources," the Times quotes Bluestone as saying.

How Sick Hollywood? The Quentin Tarantino Edition

By Rick Pearcey • February 7, 2018, 11:48 AM

In a NYPost column titled, "Tarantino: Polanski's 13-Year-Old Rape Victim 'Wanted to Have It'," Emily Smith writes:

Quentin Tarantino may be trying to act like a woeful choirboy in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein allegations, but he seems all the more mendacious in the light of an old interview in which he claimed Roman Polanski's 13-year-old rape victim "wanted to have it."

Tarantino defended Polanski during a 2003 Howard Stern interview -- which resurfaced on Jezebel -- saying, "He didn't rape a 13-year-old . . . he had sex with a minor. That's not rape."

When reminded by Stern sidekick Robin Quivers that Polanski's victim was plied with drugs and alcohol, Tarantino said, "No, that was not the case at all. She wanted to have it [sex] and dated the guy . . . Look, she was down with this."

According to the Post's Smith, Tarantino spoke "ruefully" of Weinstein and said, "I knew enough to do more than I did."

Tarantino has also been "accused by Uma Thurman of forcing her to do a car crash stunt in Kill Bill that left her injured," Smith reports.

In addition, Tarantino also reportedly "spat in her face and choked her with a chain because he didn't trust a trained actor to do it."

For his part, Tarantino "called the Uma crash 'one of the biggest regrets of my life'," according to the Post.

Smith concludes with these tweet comments from actor Jessica Chastain: "I keep imagining Tarantino spitting in Uma's face and strangling her with a chain . . . . How many images of women in media do we celebrate that showcase abuse? When did this become normalized 'entertainment'? . . . How can an actor feel safe when your director is strangling you?"

Judicial Watch Sues DOJ: Public Has Right to See How Obama WH "Justified Spying on the Trump Team"

By Rick Pearcey • February 6, 2018, 05:40 PM

Michael Chapman reports at CNSNews.com:

The government watchdog group Judicial Watch is suing the Department of Justice (DOJ) under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) for FBI documents about the FISA warrants that were obtained to spy on Trump campaign associates in 2016, the oversight group announced on Feb. 2, after the memo on alleged FISA abuse was released by the House Intelligence Committee.

FISA is the acronym for the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, created in 1978. FISC refers to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, which approves or denies the warrants for the DOJ/FBI to surveil (spy on) Americans for foreign intelligence purposes. 

"Today's House Russia FISA memo makes a compelling case that the FISA court was misled and severely abused by top officials in the Justice Department and FBI," CNSNews quotes Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton as saying in a statement. 

"The American people should be able to see for themselves the details of how the Obama administration officials (and Rod Rosenstein of the Trump administration) justified spying on the Trump team," Fitton said, according to CNSNews.

Super Bowl Ratings Drop to 8-Year Low

By Rick Pearcey • February 5, 2018, 02:36 PM

"Super Bowl LII is the lowest-rated Super Bowl game since 2010, when the Colts and Saints, two smallish market teams, faced-off against each other," Dylan Gwinn reports at Breitbart.

Accodring to Austin Karp at SportsBusiness Daily, "If NBC drew a 47.4 overnight rating for the Super Bowl, that's down only 3% from last year (48.8 for Pats-Falcons on Fox). Not a dramatic drop. But lowest overnight for a Super Bowl since 2010 though (46.4 for Saints-Colts on CBS in 2010)."

Poll: 16% of NFL Fans Say They Will Not Watch the Super Bowl

By Rick Pearcey • February 2, 2018, 11:11 AM

Dylan Gwinn writes at Breitbart:

The predicted 16% percent drop among NFL viewers for Super Bowl Sunday is more severe than the 10% hit the league's ratings took in the regular season. Couple that with the 46% of respondents who said they disapproved of the anthem protests, and it's highly likely the anthem protest movement played a large role in souring interest in the Super Bowl.

Though, as Daniel Roberts of Yahoo! points out, the Super Bowl is still a cultural event, not merely a sporting event. Meaning the game has traditionally relied on its ability to draw non-traditional football fans to the television screens. So the question becomes, will there be enough non-traditional viewers to offset the drop in traditional NFL fans?

We will soon find out.

Rep. Gaetz Calls on President Trump to Release Intel Memo During SOTU

By Rick Pearcey • January 30, 2018, 02:42 PM

Michael Chapman reports at CNSNews.com:

House Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.), who is a strong advocate for releasing the intelligence memo about alleged malfeasance at the FBI, called on President Donald Trump to release the four-page document during his State of the Union speech this evening, Jan. 30.

On Monday, Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee voted to release the memo. No Democrats voted for its release. President Trump has five days to review the document and decide whether he wants it distributed to the public. Trump has said he would like to see the document released.

"Tomorrow, the President of the United States will walk down the center aisle and address this floor," Gaetz said yesterday on the House floor during a special session, Chapman reports.

"I hope the first thing he does is hand to the Speaker of the House his consent and his agreement to allow transparency to reign, to declassify this memo, and put it before the American people," Gaetz continued, according to CNS.

"And then let's have a great debate about its consequences and the opportunity it presents to make things better, so these things never happen again," Gaetz said.

Sanctuary Cleric Quits After Video Shows Her Yelling at Police for Arresting Alleged Domestic Assault Felon in Church

By Rick Pearcey • January 29, 2018, 11:57 AM

Joshua Gill reports at the Daily Caller:

A Connecticut pastor resigned Thursday after berating police officers for arresting a man who took refuge inside the church after beating his mother.

Rev. Care Goodstal Spinks obstructed a police car Tuesday and tried to force East Haven police officer to release Ryan Champlin, whom they arrested in Old Stone Church for attacking his mother and beating her head with a phone until the device broke, according to The Maven.

Church leadership thanked police officers for their swift and calm actions and announced Thursday via Facebook that Spinks resigned in light of her actions and her differences with the wider congregation. 

"This is a church," Spinks said to the officer, according to the DC. "We're protected by federal law and state law. It is a place of sanctuary and refuge."

However, "there is no such federal law protecting criminal suspects from arrest inside a church," the DC reports. "The officer explained that Champlin was wanted for domestic abuse and assault. His argument did not dissuade Spinks," according to the DC.

"You realize that you see on the news all the time, people taking sanctuary, refuge in a church, and even the federal law can't come in and get them, because this place is a protected place," the cleric told the officer, the DC reports.

The DC suggest that "Spinks was likely referencing cases of illegal immigrants who have taken refuge from deportation inside churches. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers do not make arrests inside churches as a matter of policy, since they list churches as a sensitive area, but no law technically prevents them from making arrests in said 'sensitive locations'."

Michigan State President Resigns Over Larry Nassar Sex Abuse Scandal

By Rick Pearcey • January 25, 2018, 10:45 AM

Samuel Chamberlain reports at Fox News:

Michigan State University President Lou Anna Simon resigned late Wednesday over criticism of the university's handling of sexual abuse claims against former sports doctor Larry Nassar.

Simon resigned hours after Nassar was sentenced to between 40 and 175 years in prison for molesting women and girls while supposedly treating them for sports injuries.

In her resignation letter, Simon addressed the survivors of Nassar's abuse, saying she was "so sorry that a trusted, renowned physician was really such an evil, evil person who inflicted such harm under the guise of medical treatment."

"Nassar pleaded guilty to assaulting seven people in the Lansing area, including in his home basement and at his campus office," Fox News reports. "However, more than 150 women and girls confronted Nassar about his abuse at an extraordinary seven-day sentencing hearing. Many of the victims accused the university of mishandling complaints about Nassar, some of which go back more than two decades."

The university "faces further scrutiny in the Nassar case," according to Fox News. "The state's attorney general plans to investigate how the university handled the allegations."

Professorette's Twitter Tirade: Pro-Life Women Should "Sit Down and Shut Up"

By Rick Pearcey • January 24, 2018, 01:26 PM

Caleb Parke reports at Fox News:

A New York City college professor said she supports women marching -- unless they're against abortion.

New School professor Jennifer Begeal tweeted Friday that pro-life students and activists participating in the March for Life in Washington, D.C., should "sit down and shut up."

Begeal, who teaches digital storytelling at The New School, took to social media Friday to lambaste the anti-abortion marchers for not supporting myriad liberal causes, Campus Reform reported.

"If you support #MarchforLife but don't support a woman's right to choose, please sit down and shut up," Begeal wrote in one of the 17 posts she fired off during a three-hour tirade.

She told marchers to "sit down and shut up" if they don't support climate change, legalizing marijuana or gun control -- among other things.

The not-so-tolerant professor also had kind words for men: "'If you support #MarchforLife but you aren't a woman, please sit down and shut the f*** up,' she wrote," according to Fox.

Fox took the opportunity to grab a 10-foot pole and reach out to the college and Mzz. Begeal for comment. But the "New School and Begeal did not immediately respond to Fox News' request for comment," Parke reports.

Fake the Vote: 2nd Texas County Faces Lawsuit for Withholding Records of Noncitizens Registered to Vote

By Rick Pearcey • January 23, 2018, 12:34 PM

Joe Schoffstall reports at Free Beacon:

A public interest election group is threatening to sue a Texas County over its refusal to release records dealing with noncitizens on their voter rolls, the second Texas County threatened with such a lawsuit this month.

The Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF), a group that litigates to protect election integrity, sent a final notice to Harris County in Texas warning that they could face a federal lawsuit if they continued to deny the group inspection of their records related to registrants who were removed from the rolls after it was discovered that they were noncitizens.

Harris County voter registration officials previously testified that "thousands" of noncitizens were discovered every year on their rolls and were handed over to the District Attorney for prosecution.

The city of Houston, the largest city in the state, and one of the most populous cities in America, is located in Harris County.

Austria Announces "Border Protection Unit" to Manage Migration

By Rick Pearcey • January 22, 2018, 10:51 AM

Chris Tomlinson reports at Breitbart:

Austrian populist Freedom Party (FPÖ) Interior Minister Herbert Kickl has announced the creation of a new border force which he said will "ensure orderly border management."

The new force would be used to manage the flow of asylum seekers coming into the country, Interior Minister Kickl said in an interview last week with Austrian newspaper Tiroler Tageszeitung.

"We already have effective monitoring that works well. But what certainly cannot happen is a repetition of the year 2015," Kickl said referring to the height of the migrant crisis when hundreds of thousands of asylum seekers travelled through Austria to reach Germany.

Kickl described the border guard as a "police standby force" and said they will secure the border and perform identity checks.

"During the interview, Kickl also slammed the baby-boomer progressive generation, commonly known in Europe as the '68ers after the Paris protests of May 1968," Breitbart continues.

"The project of the '68ers failed. We are now experiencing a counter-movement, not only in Austria. And that's just as well. For me, this is a return to normality," Breitbart quotes Kickl as saying.

"The 68ers tried to be destructive in the name of progress. Consider the erosion of state identity or the identity of the family network," Kickl added, according to Breitbart.

"This government stands for an offensive counter-proposal," Kickl also said, Breitbart reports. "The theses of the '68ers have turned out to be wrong. The need for orientation, security, and homeland has been put back in a positive light by us."

Muslim Derangement Syndrome in Canada

By Rick Pearcey • January 19, 2018, 11:33 AM

Lloyd Billingsley writes at Frontpagemag.com:

In Canada, any Muslim can perpetrate a bogus "hate crime" with complete impunity. Likewise, Muslims can stab police officers and attack a 75-year-old grandmother, and Canadian authorities will slap a gag order on any hint of Islamic motivation. This is a symptom of Muslim Derangement Syndrome (MDS).

Those afflicted with MDS welcome any Muslim, even if they cannot verify background and even if the Muslim has been deported from the United States. MDS induces complete credulity over Muslim hoaxes but when Muslims attack innocent victims the MDS types lapse into a state of willful ignorance over possible motives. When anyone invokes Islam as a motive, MDS victims break into uncontrolled utterances of "Islamophobia," "racism," and "diversity is our strength."

Ronaldinho: Soul of Soccer

By Rick Pearcey • January 18, 2018, 04:26 PM

As Zito Madu points out at SBNation.com:

One of the most obvious Ronaldinho moments is when he was applauded at the Santiago Bernabéu, when his show was so great that even his harshest critics were compelled to clap and attest to the greatness that they witnessed.

The scene was a symbol of how transcendent his skills were. Even a rivalry that involved the throwing of a pig's head at Luis Figo didn’t stop fans from giving their appreciation.

 Here is Ronaldinho's farewell statement on his retiring from competitive professional soccer.

We look forward to seeing what's next for Ronaldinho -- as great a poet of the game as I've ever seen.

Enjoy this video of Ronaldinho vs. Real Madrid.

And here, "Ronaldinho Gaucho: Impossible Moments to Forget."

What is Ronaldinho football? "As electrifying as a hair dryer thrown into a hot tub, my friend . . . absolutely breathtaking" -- Ray Hudson of Bein Sports.

Obrigado, Ronaldinho!

Editorial Note/Update: Thank you, "Verbal Gymnast" Ray Hudson, who may have been the first person I heard describe the likes of Messi and Ronaldinho as, if memory serves, "poets of the game."

Nancy Pearcey: Liberal Elites Are Killing Martin Luther King, Jr.'s Vision

By Rick Pearcey • January 17, 2018, 11:19 AM

Our editor-at-large Nancy writes at CNSNews.com:

It may have sounded like routine political platitudes. On Friday, when President Donald Trump signed a declaration honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., he said, “Today we celebrate Dr. King for standing up for the self-evident truth Americans hold so dear, that … we are all created equal by God.”

Far from being platitudes, however, today those are fighting words. King’s vision of equal rights is no longer “self-evident” to many of America’s opinion makers in media, politics, and academia. Why not? Because they have embraced secular ideologies that sabotage King’s ideal.

Listen in on some of the thinkers who are busy destroying King's vision of inalienable rights. . . .

"New California" Declares Independence -- From California, Not From United States

By Rick Pearcey • January 16, 2018, 02:56 PM

Craig Bannister reports at CNSNews.com:

Citing the U.S. Constitution, a group introduced its Declaration of Independence -- from California, but not from the United States.

The "New California" movement wants to turn northern and rural California into the nation's 51 state, separating from southern, coastal urban California in the same way that West Virginia was formed, CBS Sacramento reported Monday.

"Unlike other separation movements in the past," CBS Sacramento reports, "the state of New California wants to do things by the book, citing Article 4, Section 3 of the U.S. Constitution and working with the state legislature to get it done, similar to the way West Virginia was formed."

Nancy Pearcey Column on "Despair, Not Pleasure" at LifeSiteNews

By Rick Pearcey • January 11, 2018, 07:15 AM

LifeSiteNews has picked up Nancy's most recent column, published under the headline "Why Despair, Not Pleasure, Is the Biggest Driver of Today's Sex Scandals." The article unpacks the theme of "Women, Sex, Alienation: Hating the Body in Silicon Valley. "

In this column (which also appears at Fox News and CNSNews, Nancy writes:

A society's view of sex reflects its deeper commitments -- its prevailing ethos or worldview. The sexual liberation ethic stems from an underlying idea that the world is a product of blind, material forces. As a recent New Yorker article put it, "the loyalty oath of modernity" is that "nature is without conscious design . . . the emergence of Homo sapiens was without meaning or telos" (purpose).

And if the human body is said to have no meaning or purpose, neither does sex. On one hand, that means we are free to make up our own rules. On the other hand, it means that under all the hype about being bold and experimental is a fundamental despair -- the belief that sex is insignificant in a literal sense: signifying nothing. As a drummer in Austin, Texas, told Rolling Stone, sex is just "a piece of body touching another piece of body"; it is "existentially meaningless."

This outlook is deeply dehumanizing. No wonder many people keep grabbing at more -- and more extreme -- sexual experiences, while finding less genuine fulfillment.

Nancy's most recent book is the just-published Love Thy Body, which aims to "counter the hostility toward the human body and the biological facts of life that drives many of today's heart-wrenching headline stories. Unfortunately, many people absorb pre-packaged media mantras on watershed ethical questions without being aware of their hurtful real-world implications," as Nancy's official website states.

The idea is to provide a "holistic and humane alternative available to all -- one that offers authentic, reality-oriented solutions that embrace the dignity of the human body and provide a sustainable basis for unalienable human rights," the Love Thy Body book description states.

Nancy's "LOVE THY BODY" No. 1 "Hot New Release" in 3 Amazon Categories

By Rick Pearcey • January 4, 2018, 12:12 PM

Even though Nancy's book Love Thy Body can be regarded as a "Self-Help" book -- as I explain below (and here) -- Amazon has it listed as:

  • No. 1 New Release in Theology (not bad for former agnostic Nancy)
  • No. 1 New Release in Christian Social Issues (not bad for an erstwhile Hippie girl
  • No. 1 New Release in Christian Apologetics (not bad but what you might expect from an ongoing critical thinker)

No worries, Amazon. All is well. We know you need to run a business.

But Now -- let's broaden our horizons.

Here's what I wrote on Facebook a couple of days ago on why Love Thy Body is very much a Self-Help book:

Amazon seems to think LOVE THY BODY is some kind of theology book

"No. 1 New Release in . . . Theology" ???

OK. That's nice . . .

BUT . . . Really

KIND of LIMITING

Because LOVE THY BODY could just as well be in the self-help section of your favorite bookstore

LOVE THY BODY is a SELF-HELP BOOK

Helping regular people regain their holistic humanness

Tired of being . . . DEHUMANIZED . . . ALIENATED . . .

People tired of being treated like pieces of meat to be sliced and diced by academic "gender theorists" barely able to tie their shoelaces

LOVE THY BODY is about . . .

Helping regular folks tired of being TORN APART body and soul by secularism

Regular people need honest, real-world answers to hard questions about life & sexuality

So, let's get practical: LOVE THY BODY

Trump: Steve Bannon "Not Only Lost His Job, He Lost His Mind"

By Rick Pearcey • January 3, 2018, 04:23 PM

Melanie Arter reports at CNSNews.com:

President Donald Trump issued a rebuke of former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon on Wednesday, saying Bannon has "lost his mind" after Bannon called the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting between Trump's top campaign officials and a group of Russians "treasonous."

Here is the full Trump statement:

Steve Bannon has nothing to do with me or my Presidency. When he was fired, he not only lost his job, he lost his mind. Steve was a staffer who worked for me after I had already won the nomination by defeating seventeen candidates, often described as the most talented field ever assembled in the Republican party.

Now that he is on his own, Steve is learning that winning isn't as easy as I make it look. Steve had very little to do with our historic victory, which was delivered by the forgotten men and women of this country. Yet Steve had everything to do with the loss of a Senate seat in Alabama held for more than thirty years by Republicans. Steve doesn't represent my base -- he's only in it for himself.

Steve pretends to be at war with the media, which he calls the opposition party, yet he spent his time at the White House leaking false information to the media to make himself seem far more important than he was. It is the only thing he does well. Steve was rarely in a one-on-one meeting with me and only pretends to have had influence to fool a few people with no access and no clue, whom he helped write phony books.

We have many great Republican members of Congress and candidates who are very supportive of the Make America Great Again agenda. Like me, they love the United States of America and are helping to finally take our country back and build it up, rather than simply seeking to burn it all down.

Now, "NeverTrump Celebrates," Breitbart reports.

For me, let's get more facts out on the table and see what happened. That's usually difficult to do in the heat of the moment.

But for now, this:

1) Trump overstates in his repudiation of Bannon. As "chief strategist" Bannon clearly helped Trump win the 2016 election -- and so Bannon has something to do with Trump and his presidency. Bannon may be persona non grata at the Trump White House, etc., but that's a different statement.

2) I'm not at all convinced that meeting with Russians during a campaign constitutes treason or is unpatriotic. We need to know more about who was there -- more about all the who, what, where, when, and whys. At a minimum, before drawing conclusions (which should be open to adjustment, based on reliable, factual information), we need to see verifiable reporting on any such meetings -- and a lot of such reporting.

3) Stay cool, stay focused, ask for evidence, outlast the bombast, and continue to fight like Heaven for the restoration of the Declaration and Constitution to the body politic of the United States. This is our calling and challenge as "We, the People" -- and the Swamp in all its muck and mire remains to be drained.

Finally, "Test Everything." This attitude and approach applies to the statements and actions of presidents, White House staffers, political opponents, the Dark Media, the Deep State, people you trust, people you don't trust, NeverTrump, AlwaysTrump, preachers, doctors, celebrities, professors, scientists, etc., etc. Not to mention crossing the street.

In all of human affairs, your chances of arriving safely on the other side are greatly increased if you test everything.

"LOVE THY BODY" Challenges Secularist Dehumanization, Alienation: Publishes Today, by Nancy Pearcey

By Rick Pearcey • January 2, 2018, 10:25 AM

We are happy to announce that Nancy Pearcey's new book, Love Thy Body: Answering Hard Questions about Life and Sexuality as of today is officially published.

Here is the book description at Amazon:

Why the Call to Love Thy Body?
To counter the hostility toward the human body and biological facts of life driving many of today's headline stories. Many people absorb pre-packaged media mantras on watershed moral issues without being aware of their hurtful real-world implications.

Consider:

* Transgenderism: Activists detach gender from biology. Kids down to kindergarten are being taught their body is irrelevant to their authentic self. Is this affirming -- or does it demean the body?

* Homosexuality: Advocates disconnect sexuality from being biologically male or female. Is this liberating -- or does it denigrate who we really are?

* Abortion: Supporters admit that pre-born babies are human, but deny that they are persons worthy of legal protection. Does this lead to equality for women -- or does it threaten the intrinsic dignity of all humans?

* Hookup Culture: On campus, in Hollywood, and in the boardroom, the sexual revolution was supposed to liberate us for recreational sex. But has it really led to schizoid sex and bodies without meaning?

In Love Thy Body, best-selling author Nancy Pearcey goes beyond politically correct talking points to offer a riveting exposé of the dehumanizing secularist ethos that shapes critical moral and socio-political issues of our day.

Formerly an agnostic, Pearcey was hailed in The Economist as "America's preeminent evangelical Protestant female intellectual." Fearlessly and with compassion, she makes the case that secularism denigrates the body and destroys the basis for human rights.
 
Throughout, Pearcey sets forth a holistic and humane alternative availableto all -- one that offers reality-oriented solutions that embrace the dignity of the human body and provide a sustainable basis for inalienable human rights.

 Now, more than ever, we need to learn to "love thy body."

Police Deaths Approach 50-Year Low

By Rick Pearcey • December 28, 2017, 03:41 PM

"The decline comes after 2016, a year which 'saw more deaths than in the five previous years'," according to A.W.R. Hawkins at Breitbart. "Breitbart News reported that the number of officers 'feloniously killed' in 2016 jumped 61 percent over the number killed in that fashion in 2015," Hawkins reports.

According to Hawkins:

USA Today reports that preliminary numbers for 2017 show 128 deaths in line of duty, which represents nearly a 50-year low. The only year with fewer officer deaths during the last five decades was 2013. There were 116 officer deaths that year . . . .

The 128 overall line of duty deaths for 2017 is down from the 143 line of duty deaths for 2016.

Blue Lives Matter's Randy Sutton believes the overall decline in officer deaths is the result of a greater awareness for officer safety. He indicated that this focus on safety "[includes] a change in how officers approach arrests because of the controversial high-profile shootings over the years." Officers are seemingly more cognizant of potential dangers and approach (or avoid) dangerous situations accordingly.

"On December 26, Breitbart News reported that President Trump personally paid for hundreds of dinners for law enforcement officers and agents who had to work over the Christmas holiday," Hawkins reports

"CNN's Noah Gray indicated members of the Secret Service, the White House Military Office, and the Palm Beach Sheriff Department were among those fed with the meals," Hawkins concludes at Breitbart.

Woman With Gun Finds Prowler in Her Home

By Rick Pearcey • December 26, 2017, 10:08 AM

Katy Moeller reports at the IdahoStatesman.com:

A Garden City mother told police that she threatened a home intruder with a gun Friday morning -- and he fled her house, police said in a release.

Police identified a suspect a short time later, just as he was trying to enter another home nearby. He refused to obey officers' commands and had to be forcefully taken into custody, police said.

Sage Zumr, 18, was charged with unlawful entry, trespassing and obstructing/delaying police officers. The home invasion was reported at 9 a.m. in the 200 block of East 47th Street.

"The woman who reported the incident was protecting herself and her young son, police said," according to Moeller.

Well done, mom.

You are responsible for protecting yourself and your family. You were prepared, acted, and neutralized a potentially life-endangering threat to your son and to yourself. 

Love of neighbor begins at home and sometimes requires the threat of force against violence to help aggressors, including 18-year-old home invaders, see the light.

For overcoming evil with good -- Merry Christmas!

Nightmare Before Christmas: Trump Renominates Architect of Obama's LGBT Agenda to EEOC

By Rick Pearcey • December 22, 2017, 03:38 PM

Susan Berry writes at Breitbart:

President Donald Trump has re-nominated radical sexual identity activist Chai Feldblum, the architect of former President Barack Obama's LGBT agenda, to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).

Feldblum is a nightmare of a nominee for those who value religious freedom, private property rights, and the science-based standard that there are two sexes -- male and female. As Obama's most liberal gender ideology activist, Feldblum has said that whenever LGBT issues conflict with religious liberty and private property rights, religious liberty and private rights should lose.

"When push comes to shove, when religious liberty and sexual liberty conflict, she admits, 'I'm having a hard time coming up with any case in which religious liberty should win,'" Maggie Gallagher reported at the Weekly Standard in 2006, after interviewing Feldblum when the news broke that Catholic Charities in Boston would need to place adoptive children with same-sex couples in order to remain a licensed adoption agency.

Seeking people looking for real-world hope, as well as pro-scientific, body-affirming, whole-person solutions to transgenderism and other expressions of an alienating secularism (inaccurately promoted under the banner of "liberation"), may want to see the new book Love Thy Body: Answering Hard Questions about Life and Sexuality, by Nancy Pearcey and available at Amazon.

Ex-Planned Parenthood Manager Describes "Demonic" Organization

"There's no other word you can use for what takes place," says Ramona Trevino, who formerly worked for Planned Parenthood at an "abortion-referral facility in Sherman, Texas," Grace Carr reports at the Daily Caller.

"It took a few years after working at Planned Parenthood to recognize my part in abortion even through referrals. I was still involved in a demonic organization," Trevino says, according the Daily Caller.

Illegal Alien Charged With Killing 14-Year-Old Texas Girl

By Rick Pearcey • December 19, 2017, 02:53 PM

Michael Chapman reports at CNSNews.com:

Rhyan Moody, a 14-year-old high school freshman from Colleyville, Texas, was killed when an illegal alien, apparently intoxicated, allegedly smashed an SUV into the car she was traveling in with her grandparents on Thanksgiving night, Nov. 23. Moody was in the back seat and died from blunt force trauma to her head. Her grandparents suffered numerous broken bones and are recovering . . . .

Jose Victor Chaparro-Saenz, 38, was arrested in his vehicle not far from the accident. Alcohol was found in the vehicle and Chaparro-Saenz reportedly appeared intoxicated. He was charged with manslaughter, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and resisting arrest, according to FOX4 Dallas.

In a related CNSNews report titled "Trump's First Pillar of National Security: Build the Border Wall," Terence Jeffrey writes, "In both his National Security Strategy . . . and the speech he delivered at the Ronald Reagan Building explaining it, President Donald Trump said the United States will build a wall along the southern border as part of the first pillar of his plan, which focuses on protecting the American homeland and way of life."

According to CNSNews, Trump said, "Leaders in Washington imposed on the country an immigration policy that Americans never voted for, never asked for, and never approved."

As a result of this policy, Trump said, "the wrong people are allowed into our country and the right people are rejected.

"American citizens, as usual, have been left to bear the costs and pick up the tab," Trump said, according to Jeffrey.

Returning to the first story in this post, note: "Needless to say, if the illegal alien" Chaparro-Saenz "had not been in this country," teenager Rhyan Moody "would be alive today," Chapman writes.

ESPN Prez Suddenly Resigns

By Rick Pearcey • December 18, 2017, 03:25 PM

News today of John Skippers' resignation as president of ESPN comes as a shock.

"Huge news," tweets John Ourand, "Skipper resigns from ESPN."

Reason? "Skipper cites substance abuse issues," Ourand also tweets.

"The timing of Skipper's resignation seems a bit of a mystery," Dylan Gwinn writes at Breitbart.

"Skipper had just signed a multi-year contract extension in November. How does one develop a long-term substance problem in a month?" Gwinn asks.

"Perhaps ESPN just became aware of Skipper's issue in the last month, though, that too would seem unlikely," Gwinn suggests. "Moreover, it's likely that ESPN would at least attempt to offer some kind of counseling as opposed to compelling Skipper to resign, if they just found out about Skipper's issue after signing him to a brand new deal."

Upshot: "Could there be something another, bigger story behind this announcement?" Gwinn asks.

Yes. Because "it certainly has been open season on executives and high-profile media personalities as of late. In any event, Skipper's tenure, especially of late, will be marked by decline and regression at ESPN," Gwinn writes.

"In 2015, ESPN laid off roughly 300 employees. The network laid off another 100 employees, including several high-profile, on-air talents in April of 2017. Most recently, several dozen additional employees were laid off after the Thanksgiving holiday," Gwinn states.

This may not be the last we hear of Mr. Skipper and his departure from ESPN.

FBI Is Falling: Growing Evidence of Politically Corrupt Clinton Investigation

By Rick Pearcey • December 15, 2017, 06:45 PM

Peter Hasson reports at the Daily Caller:

A series of new revelations about the FBI under James Comey has provided more evidence that partisan agents may have abused their agency positions for political purposes during the Hillary Clinton email investigation and 2016 presidential campaign.

Top FBI agent Peter Strzok, the public now knows, was removed from the Mueller investigation after a Department of Justice Office of Inspector General (IG) investigation revealed damning text messages between Strzok and FBI lawyer Lisa Page.

The messages show Strzok and Page praising Clinton, discussing whether Strzok could use his position to protect the country from Donald Trump -- whom they described as "that menace" -- and referring to an unnamed "inurance policy" in case Trump beat Clinton.

"'I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in Andy's office -- that there's no way he gets elected -- but I'm afraid we can't take that risk. It's like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you're 40,' Strzok said of Trump in one message to Page," according to Hasson.

"Andy" refers to Deputy Director of the FBI Andrew McCabe, "who has close ties to Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, a longtime Clinton ally," Hasson reports.

NFL Nation's Most Disliked Sport for 3rd Straight Month

By Rick Pearcey • December 14, 2017, 04:38 PM

Craig Bannister reports at CNSNews.com:

Ever since September's surge in National Football League (NFL) player protests of the National Anthem at games, registered voters have given the NFL the most negative rating of any major sport in the U.S.

"Since the kneeling controversy it (the NFL) fell significantly behind (in popularity)," the Winston Group noted, announcing the results of its latest monthly Sports Survey.

In November, 38% had an "unfavorable" view of the NFL -- marking the league's third straight month as the most-disliked sport. NASCAR (28%) and the NBA (26%) were the second and third most-disliked sports.

"College football fared much better than the NFL, with an unfavorable rating of 21%," Bannister reports.

The Immorality of Accusing Roy Moore

By Rick Pearcey • December 13, 2017, 12:09 PM

Yesterday after the Alabama Senate race was not called for Roy Moore, on my Facebook page came this: "One wonders how many of the thousands of write-ins were by Christian pro-lifers protesting the controversy of Moore."

Here is my reply:

If so, extremely counterproductive.

And no moral basis -- because in fact we know virtually nothing about the truth value of the unsubstantiated allegations against Moore.

For me, IT'S IMMORAL to launch unsubstantiated allegations 4 wks out from an election. UNFAIR and UNJUST and UTTERLY MANIPULATIVE.

In any case, what a shame that folks would be duped by the cynical Structured Con and thereby facilitate the deaths of thousands if not millions of unborn human beings Moore would fight to save.

But let's see how this all turns out.

I will not be surprised at all if SUDDENLY all goes quiet on the ALLEGATION FRONT.

Mission accomplished -- NOT TRUTH. NOT Justice. NOT caring about women.

But DESTROYING MOORE. And protecting the oppressive DC establishment at all costs.

Well, let's see how things turn out. Cheers, all.

About the "Structured Con," on December 4 I wrote in this space:

"Let's see the evidence" . . . .

"To borrow from Christopher Hitchens, if we are expected to condemn Roy Moore apart from evidence, we can just as easily -- and more rationally (innocent until proven guilty) -- not condemn Roy Moore in the absence of evidence. Without evidence, a 'bombshell' becomes a dud. Sizzle becomes drizzle. Your parade is hereby rained upon," I wrote November 9.

Thus far, we have no evidence. Just accusations. Plus, there is no way these politically timed accusations against Roy Moore could ever be properly and fairly evaluated when thrown at him some 4 weeks before Election Day.

Of course the WPost knows this. Of course the D.C. Establishment knows this.

This is why I say what we are witnessing is structured as a con: It's a "structured con" -- made to look like a search for truth and justice with regard to the treatment of women when in fact the timing makes certain that no just or fair assessment is possible.

The real target: To strike a bull's-eye on behalf of the D.C. establishment's objective to destroy Roy Moore and keep him (and other Constitutionalists) out of the Senate.

Thus the con, thus the lie. Thus the voter wisdom of skepticism in the face of a con no matter how much hand-wringing and peer pressure that media mobs and other mobs try to exert.

These accusations smack of serious, underhanded politics.

They do not bespeak seriousness about the pursuit of fairness and justice -- either with regard to Roy Moore or with regard to a putative concern about the ill-treatment of women.

"Elections are more important than this. And so is how we treat women in society," I concluded.

Roy Moore +9 in Alabama Senate, Calls for Trump Travel Ban After NY Terror Attack

By Rick Pearcey • December 11, 2017, 04:53 PM

Ben Kew reports at Breitbart:

Republican Alabama U.S. Senate candidate Judge Roy Moore released a statement condemning the failed terrorist attack in New York City on Monday, reiterating the need for the proper implementation of President Donald Trump's travel ban.

The incident, which took place on Monday morning, was reportedly carried out by 27-year-old Bangladeshi national Akayed Ullah in allegiance to the Islamic State (ISIS). Fortunately, no one was killed, although Ullah and three others were wounded. 

"As we get news this morning of yet another radical Islamic terrorist attack, I am grateful that it appears no one was critically injured, and, as always, I am thankful for the quick action of law enforcement who have the suspect in custody," Moore states on Twitter.

"This incident underscores the continued threats our nation faces from those who want nothing more than to destroy the freedoms we enjoy," Moore continues.

"In the United States Senate I will fight with President Trump for the increased safety of the American people and I will not mince words when it comes to calling out radical Islamic terrorism for the threat that it is," Moore affirms.

Moore concludes: "I am committed to implementing the President's travel ban, putting an end to sanctuary cities, building the wall and making America safer."

Breitbart reports that "Trump's travel ban, which prohibits immigration from seven terror-prone Middle Eastern countries, was nearly fully reinstated by the United States Supreme Court last week, following a month's long protracted battle against left-wing circuit courts that barred the executive order from taking effect."

"The latest Emerson Poll released on Monday showed that Moore has increased his lead over liberal Democrat Doug Jones to nine points, 53 percent to 44 percent," Kew concludes at Breitbart.

Wrong Move: Restaurant Robber Points Gun at Dad's Children

By Rick Pearcey • December 8, 2017, 01:49 PM

San Antonio -- "When the robber saw the two children walk out of the restroom, he pointed his gun at them, KABB reported," according to Dave Urbanski of The Blaze.

"It turns out Dad had his own gun -- and he pulled it out and shot the robber dead, KABB said," Urbanski reports.

"The citizen is a licensed carrier and did use his handgun to take down the robber," Police Capt. Michael Starnes said, according to the Blaze, quoting from the Express-News.

Will the dad be charged?

No. "He really saved the day and protected a lot of people today," Captain Starnes said.

Chief Petty Officer Joe George: Pearl Harbor Hero Recognized 76 Years After Saving 6 From Sinking USS Arizona

By Rick Pearcey • December 7, 2017, 05:36 PM

Lucas Tomlinson reports at Fox News:

An American hero is finally getting recognition 76 years after the Japanese surprise attack on Pearl Harbor.

Ahead of [today's] anniversary, the secretary of the U.S. Navy posthumously awarded the Bronze Star with valor to Chief Petty Officer Joe George, who died in 1996. The news comes five months after Fox News interviewed one of five living USS Arizona survivors, Donald Stratton, who urged the Navy to recognize George's heroic actions that day.

George is credited with saving at least six soldiers aboard USS Arizona as it was sinking after being struck several times by Japanese planes during the attack at Pearl Harbor.

One of the men George saved Dec. 7, 1943, is USS Arizona survivor Donald Stratton. Here is part of Stratton's story, as reported by Fox News:

"We got hit with the big bomb and that exploded like a million pounds of ammunition. The fireball went about 60, 70 feet in the air . . . . The explosion could have taken us away, but it didn't and thank God we made it across." . . .

Trapped aboard the sinking Arizona, Stratton and the others managed to escape the carnage, which killed 1,177 of his shipmates, with the help of a fellow sailor who threw them a lifeline from his own ship moored next to Arizona. 

With burns over 60 percent of his body, Stratton had to escape his burning warship. 

"We proceeded to go hand over hand across the line about 70 feet," said Stratton. Today, he doesn’t have fingerprints and carries scars across his body, a daily reminder of the horrors he endured at Pearl Harbor. 

"The toughest part was reaching the middle of the sagging line stretched across the two ships, and climbing up to the other ship," Fox reports.

"He kept saying, 'Come on sailor! You can make it,' recalled Stratton about his rescuer, who remained a mystery for 60 years," Fox says.

"The man who rescued Stratton and his fellow sailors that day: Joe George," Fox reports. "In his book, All the Gallant Men, Stratton described George as 'perhaps the strongest man in the harbor, an All-Navy Boxer'," according to Fox News.

"Stratton says George disobeyed his captain's order and threw Stratton the line that would save his life," Fox reports.

"It was kind of surreal. You grow up with your dad thinking of him as dad; you're not used to thinking of him as a hero," said George’s daughter, Joe Ann Taylor," according to Fox. "But it's a wonderful story and I'm quite proud of him. Plus I've gotten to know the men he saved and have developed a real bond with the Stratton and Bruner families."

Warning -- Explicit: Ruling Class Media Have Known All About "Pervy" Matt Lauer

By Rick Pearcey • December 6, 2017, 10:59 AM

Brian Flood reports at Fox News:

Embattled NBC executives have been falling over themselves, insisting they had no idea about Matt Lauer's pervy past. But if anyone doubts that New York's media elite was aware of Lauer's reputation, they should look no further than a top-secret "roast" of Lauer that took place in October 2008.

The notorious event -- now legendary in New York media circles -- pushed the outer limits of sexist, racist, homophobic and obscene jokes -- and left little doubt that Lauer's colleagues knew NBC's biggest star had a troubled marriage and a wandering eye.

"Last week, NBC's own Joe Scarborough, who attended the roast but said he left early, feeling uncomfortable, brought it up on 'Morning Joe'," Flood reports."Lauer's peccadillos, he said, were not just known about. At the roast, they were celebrated."

"The whole theme was that he does the show and then he has sex with people, with employees," Scarborough is quoted as saying. "So was this whispered behind closed doors? No. It was shouted from the mountaintops and everybody laughed about it."

Flood notes that "memories of the roast must be especially awkward for the various NBC executives now claiming they had no idea about Lauer’s reputation for sex harassment of women."

Lauer was fired "last week for inappropriate sexual behavior," Flood writes, "and in the ensuing days, NBC News' top bosses Andy Lack and his deputy, Noah Oppenheim, have claimed they had no prior knowledge of Lauer's conduct.

"Their denials have raised eyebrows within NBC and out, considering that both executive have deep ties to Lauer going back years."

Sweden May Ban Websites That List Ethnic Origin of Criminal Suspects

By Rick Pearcey • December 5, 2017, 01:25 PM

Chris Tomlinson reports at Breitbart:

Sweden has proposed banning the public use of legal document search engine Lexbase, which is used to identify the ethnic origins of Swedish criminal suspects.

According to the Swedish government, the data released by the website is too sensitive for the public and should be limited only to professionals like lawyers, journalists, and researchers. Previously, the website was protected under the Swedish Freedom of Expression Act, but the new legislation could limit what data they are allowed to release, Dagens Industri reports.

"For many years, the Swedish government has stopped the collection of statistics relating to the ethnic or religious background of criminals, making it difficult for researchers to track the correct rate of migrant crime, as opposed to crimes committed by native Swedes," Tomlinson reports.

"Some, like police officer Peter Springare, have claimed that the majority of serious crimes are committed by migrants or individuals from migrant backgrounds," Tomlinson continues. "Others have used freedom of information requests to look at crimes on a case-by-case basis and track the rate at which criminals born overseas have offended."

In addition, "one research project attempted to look solely at cases of gang rape in Sweden and found, through examining court documents, that nine out of 10 gang rapes were committed by asylum seekers and individuals with a migration background," Tomlinson reports.

In October of this year, Swedish lawyer Elizabeth Fritz said, "The rape reports are increasing and at my desk and I have many rapes and group violence. The majority of the suspects I meet in these cases have a foreign background," according to Breitbart.

"Now that Leftists in Sweden have discovered they have wrecked their own country by importing hordes of migrant criminals and appeasing them, they need to censor the truth to protect their careers," a commenter states below the Breitbart article.

Trump Calls Moore: "Go Get'em, Roy" as Voters Skeptical About Unsubstantiated Accusations

By Rick Pearcey • December 4, 2017, 03:18 PM

According to the official Twitter page of Roy Moore for U.S. Senate, President Donald Trump called the senate hopeful earlier today and told Moore, "Go Get'em, Roy!"

"Just got off the phone with President Trump who offered his full support and said he needs a fighter to help him in the US Senate," Moore tweeted approximately 3 hours ago, as we go to press.

"I look forward to fighting alongside the President to #MAGA!," Moore concludes his tweet.

According to a new CBS poll, Moore is up 6 points in the race.

In addition, results of the poll indicate that a majority of Alabama voters are not convinced by unsubstantiated accusations of sexual misconduct by Roy Moore.

"A total of 54 percent -- a majority -- of likely voters in Alabama said that the allegations are either definitely false, probably false, or that they have 'haven’t heard enough yet to say' whether they believe the allegations against Moore," Breitbart reports.

"Let's see the evidence," I stated in an earlier column.

"To borrow from Christopher Hitchens, if we are expected to condemn Roy Moore apart from evidence, we can just as easily -- and more rationally (innocent until proven guilty) -- not condemn Roy Moore in the absence of evidence. Without evidence, a 'bombshell' becomes a dud. Sizzle becomes drizzle. Your parade is hereby rained upon," I wrote November 9.

They do not bespeak seriousness about the pursuit of fairness and justice -- either with regard to Roy Moore or with regard to a putative concern about the ill-treatment of women.

Elections are more important than this. And so is how we treat women in society.

Alabama voters go to the polls Tuesday, December 12.

Executing Justice: Radicalized Politics Declares Kate Steinle Killer "Not Guilty"

By Rick Pearcey • December 1, 2017, 02:21 PM

Lloyd Billingsley writes at Frontpagemag.com:

A San Francisco jury on Thursday found Jose Ines Garcia Zarate, also known as Juan Francisco Lopez Sanchez, not guilty of the murder of Kate Steinle on a San Francisco pier on July 1, 2015. The jury of six men and six women, including three immigrants, found the Mexican national not guilty of all murder and manslaughter charges and guilty only of felony possession of a firearm . . . .

Mexican national Jose Ines Garcia Zarate, 54, is a seven-time felon and has been deported five times. In 2015 federal authorities sought to detain him for deportation. San Francisco Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi chose to defy the feds and release the Mexican national.

On July 1, 2015, the criminal illegal picked up a Sig Sauer .40 caliber pistol, stolen from a Bureau of Land Management officer, and fired the shot that killed Kate Steinle, only 32 years old. . . .

"Garcia Zarate has already proved five times that anybody can get away with violating U.S. immigration law," Billingsley continues. "He has already proved that in the sanctuary state of California, false-documented illegals are a privileged class."

Zarate "has also proved that a career criminal who is not even supposed to be in the country can literally get away with murder in broad daylight," Billingsley concludes. "When that happens, the killer’s public defender will call it a 'vindication for the rights of immigrants'."

Alabama Poll: Moore +8

By Rick Pearcey • November 30, 2017, 05:01 PM

Matthew Boyle writes from Mobile for Breitbart:

Judge Roy Moore, the GOP nominee for the U.S. Senate here in Alabama, has rebounded and solidified his lead over radical Democrat Doug Jones with less than two weeks of campaigning to go, a new poll provided exclusively to Breitbart News shows.

The poll, conducted by Rick Shaftan of Atlantic Media and Research, shows Moore has picked up five points since the firm's last survey last week -- and that Jones has stagnated exactly where he was before. Moore, now at 48 percent, towers over Jones who is still stuck at 40 percent. The survey's numbers last week, weighted to an expectation of 27 percent black turnout -- an overestimation from what black turnout will likely be -- had Moore at 43 percent and Jones at 40 percent.

Additionally, if the survey data is not weighted for turnout, Shaftan wrote in a polling memo to donors obtained exclusively by Breitbart News, Moore’s lead hits well into the double digits.

It appears that what I wrote November 9 ("Is Roy Moore Finished?") is coming to pass: "Based on what we know, Roy Moore will not step down, and he will be elected U.S. senator from Alabama in some 4 weeks."

Denzel Washington on Prison-Industrial Complex: "It Starts at Home -- I Can't Blame the System"

By Rick Pearcey • November 28, 2017, 04:19 PM

Michael W. Chapman reports at CNSNews.com:

Commenting on his new movie about a defense attorney whose ideals are tested at a new law firm, Academy Award winning actor Denzel Washington said the film did not change his views about justice in America, and when it comes to the so-called prison-industrial complex, he said the real factor is home life and two parents -- "It starts at home" and it "starts with how you raise your children."

In a Nov. 23 interview with the N.Y. Daily News,  when asked about the justice system and prison, Washington said, "It starts at home. It starts at home."

"If a young man doesn't have a father figure, he'll go find a father figure," Washington said, accoridng to CNSNews. 

"So, you know, I can't blame the system," Washington said. "It's unfortunate that we make such easy work for them."
