Germany Approves 3rd "Gender" for Official Documents

By Rick Pearcey • December 14, 2018, 10:51 AM

Oliver J.J. Lane reports at Breitbart:

Germany's parliament has voted to recognise a third gender for government documents, meaning that citizens can now be recognised in the European country as male, female, or diverse.

The change in law came late Thursday night and follows a 2017 court ruling which required the German government to either allow a third gender or to scrap gender classification altogether.

McCarthy: I'm 100% Sure We Have Votes to Pass $5 Billion in Wall Funding

By Rick Pearcey • December 12, 2018, 09:23 AM

Ian Hanchett reports at Breitbart:

On Tuesday's broadcast of the Fox News Channel's "The Story," House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) expressed 100% confidence that he has the votes to pass a bill that has $5 billion in border wall funding.

Host Martha MacCallum asked, "[A]re you guys going to be able to pass a bill that has $5 billion in wall funding before you leave for the holidays, or are you going to be here throughout Christmas, and perhaps throughout New Year's?"

McCarthy answered, "Well, the answer here is yes in the House. The question is, it takes 60 votes in the Senate, would Senator Schumer (D-NY) want to have another shutdown like he had before?"

New Jersey Hell: Invites Violent Criminal Aliens in While Stripping Citizens of Right to Self-Defense

By Rick Pearcey • December 11, 2018, 11:23 AM

Daniel Horowitz writes at CR:

For those of you living in free states, here is a glimpse of the living hell endured by those residing in blue states.

When the clock strikes midnight Tuesday morning, anyone in New Jersey who owns a magazine capable of holding more than 10 rounds of ammunition is officially in possession of illegal contraband and is deemed a fourth-degree felon.

Unlike previous magazine bans, this one retroactively bans people from even owning such magazines in their homes, even though they had been purchased legally.

At the same time, the most violent criminal aliens will be actively shielded from deportation by state officials, against federal law.

The inmates are running the asylum, while the law-abiding citizens and federal law enforcement are treated like criminals.

"While the courts create insane rights for violent criminal aliens, they refuse to recognize the most unambiguous right to bear arms or the constitutional prohibition on ex post facto laws," Horowitz continues.

"New Jersey has become a sanctuary to the most dangerous criminal aliens and gangs, many of whom engage in gun trafficking, but peaceful citizens are stripped of the right to self-defense and treated like criminals."

NeverTrump Peter Wehner Gleefully Announces Desire for Revenge Against Trump Supporters

By Rick Pearcey • December 10, 2018, 11:05 AM

Thomas Lifson writes at American Thinker:

Trump Derangement Syndrome has always been ugly, but the release of sentencing memoranda for Michael Cohen in which allusions are made to purported Cohen crimes "directed" by "person one" (known to be Donald Trump) has unleashed visions of impeachment and conviction.

More disturbingly, there is a lust for vengeance against Trump-supporters becoming visible.

Whatever the merits of this interpretation and the likelihood of an actual indictment, the haters are excited at the prospect of not just removing Trump from office, but also wreaking vengeance upon those who supported him.

Witness this tweet from NeverTrump Peter Wehner:

It looks very much like 2019 will be the year the Trump presidency comes crashing down. A similar fate awaits those who hitched their wagon to him; who have been his sycophants, courtiers and court pastors. The blast radius from the Trump presidency will be enormous.

-- Peter Wehner (@Peter_Wehner) December 10, 2018

I have never met, nor have I paid much attention to Wehner, so it is unlikely he is thinking of me as one of those deserving vengeance from within the "blast radius," but I do take it personally. For the crime of supporting someone he hates, I deserve an awful "crashing down" -- whatever that means. . . .

Transgen Fanaticism: Virginia School Board Fires Teacher for Not Using Student's False, Unscientific Pronouns

By Rick Pearcey • December 7, 2018, 03:18 PM

Breck Dumas writes at The Blaze:

After nearly seven years of teaching French at West Point High School in West Point, Virginia, Peter Vlaming is out of a job.

The school board unanimously agreed to fire the educator Thursday over his refusal to use new pronouns when addressing a transgender student.

A West Point ninth-grader who was born female transitioned to identifying as male over the summer, and the student complained that Vlaming made the student feel uncomfortable and singled out by not specifically referring to the student as "him," the Richmond Times-Dispatch reported . . . .

New York College Allows Pregnancy Center on Campus

By Rick Pearcey • December 6, 2018, 11:32 AM

Katie Franklin writes at LiveAction:

Over the years, college campuses have grown a notorious reputation for being over-zealous echo chambers that suppress free speech -- particularly that of conservative and pro-life students who don't toe the pro-abortion line.

So it's surprising when a school does just the opposite and protects the rights of students who disagree with abortion radicals.

This month, the State University of New York (SUNY) at New Paltz did just that. In a refreshing move that pro-choice politicians should take note of, the school stood by its relationship with a life-affirming pregnancy help center -- The Bravo Center -- defending its presence on campus and opting for neutrality.

"We must remain viewpoint neutral and even handed when we make determinations [regarding guests]," SUNY-New Paltz official Mike Patterson told the school newspaper, Franklin writes. 

"If we had a Planned Parenthood, then it is only fair to have The Bravo Center," Patterson said, according to Franklin. "It protects the interests of those students that might want this. That means you're going to have different viewpoints and ideologies."

"Orgy Island" Creep, Clinton Pal Epstein, Settles Before "Sex Slaves" Testify

By Rick Pearcey • December 5, 2018, 09:49 AM

"The Bill Clinton-linked financier accused of sexually abusing women on his 'Orgy Island' getaway agreed to a last-minute settlement that likely means none of his accusers will testify in court," WND reports.

"Jeffrey Epstein, 65, allegedly operated a sex ring at his mansion in Palm Beach, Florida, a residence in New York City, and his private-island estate in the Virgin Islands, dubbed by some 'Orgy Island'," according to WND.

"The deal was announced Tuesday as jury selection in a civil lawsuit brought by a lawyer for his accusers was set to begin, Fox News reported," WND states.

"Fox News said court documents it obtained in 2016 showed former President Bill Clinton took at least 26 trips on Epstein's private jet, known as the 'Lolita Express'," WND reports.

Socialist Snake Oil: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Tips Ignorant Hat Once Again

By Rick Pearcey • December 4, 2018, 11:19 AM

Cheryl Chumley writes at WTimes:

Once upon a time, Sarah Palin, former governor of Alaska and ex-vice presidential candidate, called out the government-run health care plan known as Obamacare for its death panels -- or, in bureaucratic lingo, its Independent Payment Advisory Board -- and for that, was soundly mocked and scorned by both members of the media and Democrats.

Now, one of the left's own darlings, the newly elected congresswoman from New York, socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, is using Palin's line to describe private health care plans as a means of advancing her own policy pursuit of "Medicare for all," which is to say taxpayer-funded Medicare for each and every American.

"Talk about a twist on truth," Chumley counters and then cites the following Tweet from Ocasio-Cortez:

Actually, we have for-profit "death panels" now: they are companies + boards saying you're on your own bc they won't cover a critical procedure or medicine. Maybe if the GOP stopped hiding behind this "socialist" rock they love to throw, they'd actually engage on-issue for once.

"Here's how Jim Hanson, the president of the Security Studies Group, responded" to Ocasio-Cortez, Chumley notes:

Nice try.

But commercial insurance gives people choices about what coverages they want & decide to pay for.

Your single payer nightmare will replace that with a one size fits none "choice" decided by faceless bureaucrats.

Coverage for all. Treatment for few. [italics added]

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez boasts a nice smile and happy face, as befits a saleswoman -- but what she is selling is socialist snake oil.

For a real-world understanding of the nightmare that happens to people when socialists like Ocasio-Cortez have their way -- when centralized government control supplants the diversity of human freedom and human choices -- consider this Oct. 23, 2018 report from the Miami Herald on "Blackouts Force Venezuelans to Live and Work -- Even Perform Surgery -- in Darkness."

Bad News for Dick's Sporting Goods After Caving to Gun Controllers

By Rick Pearcey • December 3, 2018, 10:03 AM

Emily Zanotti reports at Daily Wire:

Dick's Sporting Goods is warning investors that its decision to remove certain "assault-style" weapons from its Field & Stream stores cost it dearly and may limit its future gains.

The sporting goods retailer was forced to confront angry shareholders late last week after its stocks tanked more than 4.5% and financial conglomerate J.P. Morgan Chase downgraded Dick's shares, saying the company was "overweight." . . . 

Dick's says it can trace the downturn not just to an overall retail downturn, but also directly to its decision to take action on "gun control," banning the sales of "assault-style" rifles at its Field & Stream affiliated retailer and discontinuing any gun sales to people under the age of 21.

"Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" Called Bigoted

By Rick Pearcey • November 30, 2018, 09:53 AM

Lukas Mikelionis reports at Fox News:

HuffPost, a liberal news site, was lampooned after saying Christmas classic "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" was "seriously problematic" over claims that it features sexism and bullying.

"Viewers are noticing the tale may not be so jolly after all," the outlet's video said. "And they're sharing their observations online."

Among those observations was the suggestion that the TV classic was a story about racism and homophobia, while calling Santa Claus abusive and bigoted.

Gladly, "HuffPost's effort to highlight the perceived bigotry of the beloved movie attracted tens of thousands of negative comments, most of them mocking the video," Mikelionis reports.

Among the negative comments is this: "Liberalism is a disease" -- tweeted by Donald Trump, Jr., according to Fox News.

Gun-Rights Groups Call for Dialogue After Alabama Police Shooting

By Rick Pearcey • November 29, 2018, 08:40 AM

Stephen Gutowski reports at the Free Beacon:

A pair of gun-rights groups called for a national dialogue between law enforcement and the gun-carrying community on Tuesday after a legally armed man was mistakenly killed during a shooting at a mall in Alabama last week.

The Second Amendment Foundation and the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms released a joint statement calling for police officers and law enforcement officials to sit down with gun-carry advocates and firearms trainers to discuss ways to prevent legally armed civilians from being shot by police during future incidents.

The groups said the conversation was necessary to save lives of good Samaritans who are trying to defend themselves or others during attacks in public places. They said that while cases of mistaken shootings during attacks have been rare up until now, the prevalence of concealed carry means they could become more common if steps aren't taken to prevent them.

Nooses Found Near Mississippi State Capitol Turn Out to Be Democrat "Protest"

By Rick Pearcey • November 28, 2018, 08:24 AM

Emily Zanotti writes at the Daily Wire:

A group of nooses discovered hanging off trees near the Mississippi state Capitol were not a warning from a white supremacist group, but rather a "protest" by leftists against Mississippi Republican Senate candidate Cindy Hyde-Smith.

Mainstream media organizations melted down on Monday after a number of nooses were found hanging in the vicinity of the capitol building, strung from trees as part of a "message" campaign -- though the Associated Press, which first reported the story, didn't give much more information about the "message" the nooses were trying to send, only that it was one of "hate."

Millennial Poll: America "Racist," Not "Great," Obama Better Than Washington

By Rick Pearcey • November 27, 2018, 01:34 PM

Paul Bedard writes at the Washington Examiner:

Younger Americans are turning on the country and forgetting its ideals, with nearly half believing that it isn't "great" and many eyeing the U.S. flag as "a sign of intolerance and hatred," according to a new and disturbing survey.

Those who came of age under former President Barack Obama also have a larger-than-life view of the 44th president and feel that he had a "bigger impact" on the United States than the father of the country and leader of the Revolutionary War, former President George Washington.

On the release of the report, Nick Adams, founder of FLAG [Foundation for Liberty and American Greatness], said, "We suspected that we would find decreasing numbers of Americans well-versed in our nation's most important principles and young people less patriotic than the generations that came before, but we were totally unprepared for what our national survey reveals: an epidemic of anti-Americanism."

"That half of millennials and Gen Z believe that the country in which they live is both 'racist' and 'sexist' shows that we have a major fraction of an entire generation that has been indoctrinated by teachers starting in grade school that America is what's wrong with the world," Adams also said, according to Bedard.

"Do Not Enter": Former Olympic Village Becomes Migrant No-Go Zone

By Rick Pearcey • November 23, 2018, 10:17 AM

Chris Tomlinson reports at Breitbart:

The former Olympic village in the northern Italian city of Turin has become a no-go zone according to reports that say the area has become filled with migrants and police "do not enter."

The three buildings within the village were built to house athletes during the 2006 winter Olympics, but are now increasingly used by newly arrived migrants along with far-left activists in their so-called "social centres," Il Giornale reeports.

Around 95 per cent of the residents are men aged 25 to 35, and come from mainly Nigeria, Gambia, and Mali. A large number of them are reported to be illegal migrants.

"Far-left activists have occupied the area for several years and cooperate with the illegal migrants to 'resist' any attempts to evacuate the squatters," Tomlinson reports for Breitbart.

President Abraham Lincoln's "Proclamation of Thanksgiving"

By Rick Pearcey • November 22, 2018, 12:46 PM

On Saturday, Oct. 3, 1863, in the midst of the American Civil War, President Abraham Lincoln issued the following proclamation:

The year that is drawing toward its close has been filled with the blessings of fruitful fields and healthful skies. To these bounties, which are so constantly enjoyed that we are prone to forget the source from which they come, others have been added, which are of so extraordinary a nature that they cannot fail to penetrate and soften the heart which is habitually insensible to the ever-watchful providence of Almighty God.

In the midst of a civil war of unequaled magnitude and severity, which has sometimes seemed to foreign states to invite and provoke their aggressions, peace has been preserved with all nations, order has been maintained, the laws have been respected and obeyed, and harmony has prevailed everywhere, except in the theater of military conflict; while that theater has been greatly contracted by the advancing armies and navies of the Union.

Needful diversions of wealth and of strength from the fields of peaceful industry to the national defense have not arrested the plow, the shuttle, or the ship; the ax has enlarged the borders of our settlements, and the mines, as well of iron and coal as of the precious metals, have yielded even more abundantly than heretofore. Population has steadily increased, notwithstanding the waste that has been made in the camp, the siege, and the battlefield, and the country, rejoicing in the consciousness of augmented strength and vigor, is permitted to expect continuance of years with large increase of freedom.

No human counsel hath devised, nor hath any mortal hand worked out these great things. They are the gracious gifts of the Most High God, who while dealing with us in anger for our sins, hath nevertheless remembered mercy.

It has seemed to me fit and proper that they should be solemnly, reverently, and gratefully acknowledged as with one heart and one voice by the whole American people. I do, therefore, invite my fellow-citizens in every part of the United States, and also those who are at sea and those who are sojourning in foreign lands, to set apart and observe the last Thursday of November next as a Day of Thanksgiving and Praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the heavens. And I recommend to them that, while offering up the ascriptions justly due to Him for such singular deliverances and blessings, they do also, with humble penitence for our national perverseness and disobedience, commend to His tender care all those who have become widows, orphans, mourners, or sufferers in the lamentable civil strife in which we are unavoidably engaged, and fervently implore the interposition of the Almighty hand to heal the wounds of the nation, and to restore it, as soon as may be consistent with the Divine purposes, to the full enjoyment of peace, harmony, tranquility, and union.

In testimony whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the seal of the United Stated States to be affixed.

Done at the city of Washington, this third day of October, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty-three, and of the Independence of the United States the eighty-eighth.

"Pro-Life" John Kasich Threatens to Veto Bill Banning Abortions on Babies With Heartbeats

By Rick Pearcey • November 21, 2018, 01:02 PM

Calvin Freiburger reports at LifeSiteNews:

Ohio Gov. John Kasich, a past and potentially-future Republican presidential candidate who bills himself as "pro-life," has renewed his opposition to pending legislation that would protect almost all pre-born babies in his state.

On Thursday, the Ohio House voted 60 to 35 to pass House Bill 258, which bans abortions on any pre-born baby with a detectable heartbeat, except in cases of a "substantial and irreversible" physical threat to the mother.

Any physician who violates the statute would face up to a year in prison. Pre-born babies’ hearts finish forming around seven or eight weeks into pregnancy.​​ 

"Establishing human heartbeat protections in Ohio is a historic opportunity for those committed to the cause of life," Right to Life of Greater Cincinnati declared last week.

"Kasich confirmed he remains opposed to the heartbeat bill during a meeting with reporters at the statehouse Monday, the Toledo Blade reports," according to LifeSiteNews.

"I see nothing that’s coming that would make me change my position," he said, the Blade reports.

Cheryl Chumley vs. Ocasio-Cortez: Here's Why Your Socialism Is Wrong

By Rick Pearcey • November 20, 2018, 02:40 PM

Cheryl Chumley writes at the WTimes:

The newly elected self-declared socialist congresswoman for New York, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, just hit at Republicans for so-called "drooling" at the chance to criticize her and said that instead of standing at the ready to go public with all her mistakes and missteps, they ought to instead "actually step up enough to make the argument they want to make."

OK. Invitation accepted. So here goes: Socialists don't belong in American politics.

Socialists don't even belong in American society.

President Donald Trump may call the media the enemy of the people. But that title, that badge, that phrase of scorn and derision, more rightly belongs on the chest of those who say they're American but at the same time claim political adherence to socialism, either formally -- through the party, and its various offspring parties -- or informally, in ideology.

Drum them out.

"Yes, that's right, socialists are the enemy of America, the antithesis of the American dream, the bold-face opposers to all that the Founding Fathers represented -- to all that patriots over the long, sometimes bloody decades have fought to preserve," Chumley continues.

"A pretty smile doesn't change that fact. An engaging personality doesn't change that. A pretended compassionate concern for the working guy doesn't change that, either. . . ."

Totalitarian Democracy of Stacey Abrams

By Rick Pearcey • November 19, 2018, 09:48 AM

Abraham H. Miller writes at American Thinker:

"Democracy has failed in Georgia," said Stacey Abrams in what hardly could be called a concession speech after a ballot recount confirmed that the Republican candidate, Brian Kemp, had defeated her in Georgia's gubernatorial contest.

Of course, democracy did not fail in Georgia. The voters made their voices heard at the ballot box, and Ms. Abrams did not like what she heard.

The late Israeli historian J.L. Talmon called such behavior "totalitarian democracy" or "messianic democracy," which found its origins in the French Revolution when the extremists arrogated to themselves the unfettered right to interpret the will of the people.

"Alexis de Tocqueville wrote about this when he observed that those who made the French Revolution always spoke in the name of the people, without in the least having bothered to consult them," Miller explains.

"Talmon's theme was that in totalitarian democracy there exists a general will, an abstraction that is known to elites who divine what the people really want and assume the right to speak in the name of the people," Miller continues.

"In totalitarian democracy, the elite are not the people's representatives but their messiahs," Miller states.

"Abrams stands squarely in the long pantheon of those who claimed not only to understand the will of the people but also to embody it. This pantheon," Miller notes, "includes the French Revolution's Robespierre, Italy's Benito Mussolini, Argentina’s Juan Peron, and Lenin, among others.

"Non-Binary" D.C. Public Schools Harming Students & Families They Claim to Serve

By Rick Pearcey • November 15, 2018, 11:41 AM

In reply to a news report titled, "D.C. Public School Students Now Allowed to Identify as 'Non-Binary'," I wrote on Facebook:

Be thankful we do not live in a non-binary universe.

If we did, life on the road would be chaos and death.

No bus driver would be able to bus kids to school without an accident.

Life is impossible without antithesis.

Knowledge is impossible without the possibility of detecting the difference between "there" and "not there."

A non-binary world pretends opposites are so yesterday.

But then today a bus that is "there" as opposed to "not there" runs your precious life over.

Science is impossible without the possibility of evaluating the difference between fact and fiction, myth and truth --

The difference between fantasies that kill and information that liberates.

Non-binary is just another word for "enslave my mind."

In a non-binary world, the insane feel free as they bounce with confidence to the gas chambers.

D.C. public schools need to stop harming students and families they purport to serve.

Imagine there are no opposites. It's easy, then you die.

D.C. public schools need to stop harming students and families they purport to serve.

Gun Controller David Hogg Compares Shootings to Shark Attacks

By Rick Pearcey • November 14, 2018, 12:44 PM

Ashe Schow writes at Daily Wire:

Gun control activist David Hogg, who survived the Parkland, FL school shooting earlier this year, attempted to make a profound statement about shootings by comparing them to shark attacks.

"Imagine saying the only way to stop shark attacks is with more sharks," Hogg tweeted. . . .      

On its face, this makes a little sense. Why would you release more sharks hoping to stop sharks from attacking people?

But if you think about it for more than a second, you can see how the argument falls apart.

Sharks are the guns, in this analogy, so let's look at this from a gun rights and gun control view.

"For gun-rights activists, the idea that a good guy with a gun can stop a bad guy with a gun is a prevalent talking point," Schow continues.

"In Hogg's analogy, that would mean finding good sharks to stop the bad sharks," Schow observes. "If we could train sharks like that, well, that would be awesome."

Survey of Financial Journalists: Liberals Outnumbering Conservatives 14-to-1

By Rick Pearcey • November 13, 2018, 11:05 AM

David Rutz reports at the Free Beacon:

A survey of financial journalists revealed a stark political contrast, with 58 percent of respondents describing themselves as liberal against just 4 percent calling themselves conservative.

The study, conducted by professors at Arizona State University and Texas A&M University, sought to "provide new insights into the inputs, incentives, and beliefs that shape their reporting" by interviewing 462 financial reporters about their jobs.

"The findings of the reporters' political leanings mirrors that of Politico surveys of the White House press corps in 2016 (zero Republicans among 72 reporters surveyed) and 2017 (three Republicans out of 63 surveyed)," Rutz reports.

Why Trump Right on CA Wildfires: "Green Policies" Burning Golden State to a Crisp

By Rick Pearcey • November 12, 2018, 02:21 PM

Matthew Vadum writes at Frontpagemag.com:

Trump is right -- at least in a big-picture way -- and his critics are wrong.

Years ago environmentalist lobbies ideologically opposed to economic growth put the screws to California's once-thriving wood-harvesting industry. New federal and state regulations came into effect make it increasingly difficult for the industry to operate.

"As a result, timber industry employment gradually collapsed, falling in 2017 to half of what it was 20 years earlier, with imports from Canada, China, and other nations filling domestic need," Chuck DeVore, Vice President of National Initiatives at the Texas Public Policy Foundation, writes at Forbes.

As timber harvesting permit fees rose and environmental regulations intensified, industry employees left the field and "[t]he combustible fuel load in the forest predictably soared," according to DeVore.

“No longer were forest management professionals clearing brush and thinning trees."

"With all that kindling piling up on forest floors," Vadum continues, "today's devastating wildfires were not hard to foresee."

Sick: Vox's Matt Yglesias Condoned Violence Against Wife of Tucker Carlson

By Rick Pearcey • November 9, 2018, 01:08 PM

Mike Brest reports at the Daily Caller:

Vox employee Matt Yglesias deleted all of his tweets Thursday night after facing criticism for defending the attacks against Fox News host Tucker Carlson's wife.

Yglesias announced on Twitter Thursday morning that he "honestly cannot empathize with Tucker Carlson's wife" after members of Antifa swarmed her home and cracked the front door Wednesday night.

"I think the idea behind terrorizing his family, like it or not as a strategy, is to make them feel some of the fear that the victims of MAGA-inspired violence feel thanks to the non-stop racial incitement coming from Tucker, Trump, etc.[,]" Yglesias tweeted before deleting it.

"He followed up that tweet adding, 'I agree that this is probably not tactically sound but if your instinct is to empathize with the fear of the Carlson family rather than with the fear of his victims then you should take a minute to reflect on why that is'," Brest reports.

Trump Exulting in Having Nancy Pelosi as His Foil

By Rick Pearcey • November 7, 2018, 10:38 AM

Thomas Lifson writes at American Thinker:

Prior to the election, there was speculation that President Trump wanted Republicans to lose the House in order to ensure his 2020 re-election by running against the crazy House Dems, led by Nancy Pelosi, whose verbal inartfulness is already legendary.

On the campaign trail, he warned his supporters about the dangers of a Pelosi speakership, but I am pretty sure he recognizes in her the possibilities for deal-making.

Support for that hypothesis comes from the congratulatory call he made to her last night, and from his tweet this morning endorsing her for Speaker. . . .

Lisfon says he looks "forward to the intra-party conflict ahead for the Democrats as the impeachment-crazed haters run up against the party establishment. . . . Trump knows that the aging establishment versus the new generation radical crazies (Alexandria Occasional-Cortez, for example) is a fault line that he can exploit."

Democrat Stacey Abrams: Banning Guns Like Banning Radar Detectors

By Rick Pearcey • November 6, 2018, 11:39 AM

A.W.R. Hawkins writes at Breitbart:

During Monday morning interview on CNN, Democrat gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams made clear she does not see any difference between banning guns and banning radar detectors.

Her appearance gave the host time to reference Abrams' Sunday comments, wherein she said that Georgians may have to “turn their guns in” under her gun control plans.

The host asked if she was really going to take away people's guns, and Abrams responded by comparing bans on radar detectors with bans on commonly owned semiautomatic firearms.

"I support a law that will ban 'assault weapons'," Abrams is quoted as saying. "And just as when we banned radar detection, for example, some people turned in their devices, some people kept them and just refused to use them anymore."

According to Hawkins, "after mentioning that people were able to keep their radar detectors but were banned from using them," Democrat Abrams "then pointed out that the case could be different with weapons, saying, 'Weapons are more dangerous, they are more vulnerable to misuse'."

"Die Jew Rats": Democrat Charged With Vandalizing New York Synagogue

By Rick Pearcey • November 5, 2018, 11:56 AM

Lloyd Billingsley writes at Frontpagemag.com:

On Friday, just days after 11 people were murdered in a Pittsburgh synagogue, New York City police arrested James Polite, a Democrat, for vandalizing a New York synagogue with anti-Semitic messages.

"Die Jew rats we are here," read one message, along with "Jews better be ready," and "Hitler."

The next day, CNN failed to report that Polite, 26, was a Democrat activist who had worked on the Obama campaign in 2008.

CNN described him as a "Brooklyn man" arrested and charged with a hate crime for the anti-Semitic messages and "criminal mischief and making graffiti."

Other reports found more background on the Democrat, who had been identified through surveillance footage.

6-in-9 Swing District Voters: Keep Migrant Caravan Out of the Country

By Rick Pearcey • November 2, 2018, 12:59 PM

John Binder reports at Breitbart:

Nearly 6-in-9 likely voters in swing districts across the United States say federal officials must keep a migrant caravan of at least 10,000 Central Americans out of the country.

In a new poll by NumbersUSA, about 65 percent of likely voters in swing districts this election cycle say the migrant caravan headed to the U.S. to overwhelm the country's asylum and immigration system needs to be kept out of the country.

About 40 percent say "all of them" in the caravan should be stopped "from entering the country." About 25 percent of likely swing district voters say the U.S. should "require them to remain in Mexico until their asylum hearing."

"Only 18 percent of likely swing district voters support the country's current asylum process, which allows illegal border crossers and asylum-seekers to enter the U.S. while awaiting their hearings," Binder reports.

AZ Poll: Martha McSally Solidifying Lead Over Kyrsten Sinema for U.S. Senate

By Rick Pearcey • November 1, 2018, 01:27 PM

Hank Berrien reports at Daily Wire:

A new poll released on Thursday from ABC15 Arizona and OH Predictive Insights shows Arizona Congresswoman Martha McSally solidifying her lead in the close senatorial race against Congresswoman Kyrsten Sinema.

The poll found McSally garnering 52% of the vote while Sinema got 45%. 2% of voters were undecided; 1% said they'd vote for Green Party candidate Angela Green.

"Mike Noble, the head pollster for OH Predictive Insights, said the key factors in the race are the recent confirmation fight over Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court and the migrant caravan headed to the United States," according to Berrien. 

"With the migrant caravan headed for the United States, McSally has been focusing on the issue," Berrien reports.

"Every single day, everywhere I go, people are asking me about the caravan," McSally is quoted as saying. "Every single day, they are asking about what we are doing to secure our border."

Daily Wire also reports that McSally "held a news conference Tuesday in Mesa, where three members of 'angel families,' people whose relatives had been killed by illegal immigrants, offered their endorsements of her."

School of Lies: Eavesdropping on Obama's Organizing for Action This Election

By Rick Pearcey • October 31, 2018, 01:12 PM

Lee DeCovnick writes at American Thinker:

There is nothing like the local coffee shop near my home to hear the unvarnished truth.

Tuesday morning, I was sitting with my morning brew reading how wonderful it was that the Dodgers got slam dunked, when a group of 12 folks, mostly in their 20's, and the leader in her forties, orders and they sit across from me at a large table and hold their meeting.

They are the true believers; door bell ringers for the Democratic candidate for the California Assembly in my district.

The leader was real piece of work, white, sour faced, short hair, no makeup, black jeans and black tee, and wearing a black and white "Palestinian" keffiyeh around her neck, and carrying a notebook with the OFA (Organizing for Action) logo. Yes, Obama's own Revolutionary Guards.

Let me report just the most salient instruction that was told to these folks . . . lie.

In a nutshell, the leader said to ask the home owners you contact what their political concerns are, then feed these concerns back as positive positions for the candidate.

Taxes too high? Feed back that the candidate wants to lower taxes.

More gun control? Feed back that the candidate want more gun control.

Too many immigrants? Feed back that the candidate wants to review the situation.

"This went on, ad nauseum, for 15 minutes," DeCovnick wrties.

Networks Disregard Florida GOP HQ Getting Shot Up . . . Bash Trump Instead

By Rick Pearcey • October 30, 2018, 12:00 PM

Nicholas Fondacaro writes at Newsbusters:

For a week, the liberal media have been railing against President Trump, claiming he was the one responsible for the violence and death in recent days.

Yet when the Volusia County Florida Republican Party headquarters was sprayed with bullets Sunday night, none of the broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) cared enough to mention it during their Monday news programs. . . . 

Turning a blind eye to violence against Republicans was not new to the liberal media.

Just last month, the networks ignored a GOP office in Wyoming being intentionally set on fire. The broadcast networks have also ignored the disturbing upsurge in physical attacks against GOP candidates and lawmakers. One attack included a candidate in California who had to use a lawn sign to fend off a man trying to stab him.

"Instead of covering the attack against the GOP office," Fondacaro writes, "the networks decided their time was better-spent railing against Trump for criticizing the press and for being, in their minds, an insufficient 'consoler-in-chief'."

Watch and listen here as Candace Owens unveils a new initiative she calls BLEXIT -- the "Black Exit from permanent victimhood, the Black exit from the false idea that we are somehow separate from the rest of America."

"We free," the Blexit website proclaims. And then explains: 

BLEXIT is a frequency for those who have released themselves from the political orthodoxy. It is a rebellion led by Americans wishing to disrupt the simulation of fear.

BLEXIT is a renaissance. It is our formal declaration of independence.

Kanye West Designs "Blexit" Shirts, Encourages Black Americans to Leave Democrat Party

By Rick Pearcey • October 29, 2018, 12:27 PM

Tom Joyce reports at LifeZette:

Rapper Kanye West, who has been open about his support for the current sitting president, is now using merchandise to help encourage black Americans to leave the Democratic Party.

The artist designed a series of "Blexit" ("black exit") merchandise that was revealed at Turning Point USA’s Young Black Leadership Summit in Washington, D.C., over the weekend.

West himself was not at the event, but Turning Point's communications director, Candace Owens, who has grown friendly with West, praised him for it there.

"Blexit is a renaissance, and I am blessed to say that this logo, these colors, were created by my dear friend and fellow superhero Kanye West," Owens is quoted as saying the D.C. summit.

West "has taken one of the boldest steps in America to open a conversation we have needed to have," Owens said, according to LifeZette.

Nancy Pearcey @LifeZette: #MeToo Movement Roils Classical Music World

By Rick Pearcey • October 26, 2018, 12:42 PM

Pearcey Report editor at large Nancy Pearcey writes at LifeZette:

Officials with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra are facing a federal sexual harassment complaint by primary oboist Katherine Needleman (pictured above left) against concertmaster Jonathan Carney. She claims he propositioned her for sex, then retaliated when she denied his advances. (The concertmaster is second in importance only to the conductor.)

The Cleveland Orchestra’s concertmaster, William Preucil, celebrated as the best in the country, was recently suspended. Violinist Zeneba Bowers charges that after assaulting her, Preucil threatened to blacklist her if she told anyone.

Even world-renowned conductors have been ousted. The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra in London canceled conductor Charles Dutoit’s appearances "for the immediate future" following allegations of sexual assault, including rape.

The Metropolitan Opera in New York City fired star conductor James Levine earlier this year, saying it found credible evidence that he engaged in "sexually abusive and harassing conduct both before and during the period when he worked at the Met."

Charles Dutoit? James Levine? I grew up in a musical home (and attended college on a full-tuition violin scholarship), so these are names I've known since my teens, always spoken with reverence.

Yet these revelations did not come as a great shock to some people in the classical music world.

I interviewed a husband and wife who work as professional musicians and teach at the university level. They said the pervasiveness of sexual harassment "has been known for years, but nobody did anything about it."

Exploding the Transgender Myth

By Rick Pearcey • October 25, 2018, 11:09 AM

Avrohom Gordimer writes at American Thinker:

The Trump administration is finally bursting the bubble -- a bubble full of hot air, falsehoods, and nefarious social agendas.
. . .

The entire transgender legitimacy movement is a fabrication in which new vocabulary was introduced to glorify those who suffer from the psychiatric condition known as gender dysphoria.

Although it has been sanitized to reflect political correctness and liberal values, the American Psychiatric Association's classification of gender dysphoria treats the condition as a mental disorder; it is hard to avoid the inescapable scientific truth.

Under President Obama, the federal government was directed to deny this truth and to treat those with gender dysphoria as really being of the sex they imagine they are, due to their disorder.

President Trump has corrected this error and should be applauded.

Socialist Venezuela: Blackouts Force Doctors to Perform Surgery in Darkness

By Rick Pearcey • October 24, 2018, 01:59 PM

In a news article titled "Blackouts Force Venezuelans to Live and Work -- Even Perform Surgery -- in Darkness," Gustavo Ocando Alex reports at the Miami Herald:

When the lights go out in their sixth-floor apartment yet again, the Molero family knows the drill. First, 27-year-old Marcos José Molero, a quadriplegic since birth, begins muttering swear words in his bedroom, angry that he won't be able to watch his favorite TV series or the latest Barcelona soccer game.

Then his father, Marcos José Molero Sr., drags sleeping mats into the living room -- "It's fresher in here," he said during a blackout last month ­-- so his son can find some comfort in the blistering darkness.

Next, the 56-year-old civil engineer takes turns with his wife laying wet towels on his son's body to help cool him so he doesn't get another heat rash on his legs and back. They know the apartment can quickly heat up to 95 degrees with no air conditioning.

And finally, as they sit in the dark, they play soothing music on a battery-powered radio. . . ."

"Blackouts in Zulia state, an area of northwestern Venezuela that includes the country's second-largest city of Maracaibo, have become commonplace in the last year," the Herald reports.

"Food and medicine were already increasingly scarce in Venezuela, but the power cuts that come without warning -- sometimes more than once a day -- are a new form of misery," the Herald states.

"The government has blamed the outages on a variety of things -- including pesky animals," according to the Herald. "In an Oct. 20 tweet, Energy Minister Luis Motta Dominguez named 'rats, mice, snakes, cats, squirrels' as possible culprits in shorting out lines. He added: 'In the list of animals mentioned above, of course iguanas are included.'"

Migrant Caravan Invasion: What the President Must Do to Seal the Border

By Rick Pearcey • October 23, 2018, 12:54 PM

Joseph Klein writes at Frontpagemag.com

A migrant caravan from Central America is currently heading en masse to the United States. Its members, several thousand strong, are intent on pouring into the U.S. in what amounts to an invasion force.

President Trump has correctly branded the caravan an "onslaught" and an "assault on our country." The president has promised to use military troops if necessary to close the southern border with Mexico.

He also threatened to cut off all foreign aid to those Central American countries that are not doing enough to stop the migration caravan in its tracks.

Members of the caravan have already demonstrated their violent streak during an early stage of their trek, as they approached Mexico. They "forced their way through Guatemala's northwestern border and flooded onto a bridge leading to Mexico," AFP reported.

These migrants, mainly from Honduras, engaged in violent clashes with Mexican riot police as they tried to surge through police lines and cross the bridge into Mexico. Four Mexican police officers were reportedly injured.

"Violent entry into the country not only threatens our sovereignty, but also puts the migrants themselves at risk," Mexico’s President Pena Nieto is quoted as saying. "Mexico does not permit and will not permit entry into its territory in an irregular fashion, much less in a violent fashion."

The Devils: Leftist Violence Is Natural Outgrowth of Authoritarian Ideology

By Rick Pearcey • October 22, 2018, 12:37 PM

In his latest column David Limbaugh asks

What do you make of the leftist violence and anarchy all over the country lately? Is it just random and unrepresentative of the Democratic Party and the left as a whole? Or does it logically follow from what the left has become?

As Limbaugh sees it: 

There is a logical connection between the left's ideology and its authoritarian, intolerant and violent behavior.

There are passionate advocates on both sides of the political divide, each fervently believing in their respective views, but the modern political left is much less respectful of the Constitution, the rule of law and democratic processes.

For far too many leftists, the end justifies the means, so they are willing to suspend due process and change the rules when they don't prevail at the ballot box.

Drilling further down, Limbaugh notes: 

Leftists, being largely secular, invest their faith in government, which partially explains their inability to accept the failures of their policies to achieve the results they claim they want (socialism) and their sometimes even abandoning the pursuit of those results. . . . 

The left's moral preening, virtue signaling and sermonizing are natural outgrowths of its quasi-spiritual, unshakable faith in its failed utopian policies. Leftists invested enormous hope in Obama's agenda, but it yielded only economic stagnation and an America in decline.

Their faith-based incredulity manifests itself in their taking credit for Trump's economy -- even after their leader himself, former President Obama, predicted that the dreadful economic malaise over which he presided was to be a permanent phenomenon in America.

The sad reality is that Democrats have no solutions anymore and thus are reduced to crass, divisive identity politics -- pitting minorities against white people, women against men, and poor against rich.

No matter what they say, there is no satisfying them; they traffic in agitating racial, gender and economic warfare, and it's devastating to the national fabric. This explains why they demonize Kanye West and any other black person who dares to stray from the prescribed liberal dogma.

"The left's increasing violent episodes and rhetoric give us a taste of what Democrats would be like if they regained majority power," Limbaugh concludes. "If that happens, they will engage full-bore in the kind of lawless authoritarian behavior they falsely accuse President Trump of committing."

New York Man Arrested for Death Threats Against Senators Supporting Kavanaugh

Evie Fordham reports at Daily Caller:

A New York man was arrested Friday for making death threats to two unnamed senators, who supported the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, in phone calls dating back as far as Sept. 27.

Ronald DeRisi, 74, left more than 10 expletive-laced, threatening phone messages, prosecutors said, according to USA Today.

He allegedly talked about making a senator a "dead man" with a "9 millimeter" in the "side of the head," in a Sept. 27 phone call to one of the senators, reported Politico.

Pelosi Details Plans for Open Borders: No Democrats Will Vote for Trump Wall

By Rick Pearcey • October 18, 2018, 01:11 PM

John Binder writes at Breitbart:

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) says that if the Democrats take back the House in the 2018 midterm elections, none of them will vote for President Trump's wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.

In an interview with Politico, Pelosi detailed her plans -- or lack thereof -- for the U.S.-Mexico border and national immigration policy, which does not include Trump's proposed border wall.

"I don't see any of us voting for wall funding," Pelosi said. "We have a responsibility to secure our borders," Pelosi said. "There are ways to do that that are consistent with civilization, humanitarianism, and who we are as a nation. We have to remove all doubt about that."

"Pelosi's hinting that Congress must 'remove all doubt' that the U.S. is humane could come in the form of House and Senate Democrats' plan to end all immigration enforcement across the nation, including the abolishment of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE)," Binder writes.

Hungary Bans Gender Studies: Because It's "an Ideology, Not a Science"

By Rick Pearcey • October 17, 2018, 11:30 AM

Caleb Parke reports at Fox News:

Hungary's populist government has banned gender studies degrees citing low enrollment numbers that waste taxpayer money and because it is "an ideology not a science."

Left-wing critics say it's academically problematic, politically unheard of in a democratic society, and argue gender studies degrees do lead to jobs.

Prime Minister Viktor Orban, who has been called the Donald Trump of Europe, signed the decree, which went into effect Saturday, removing gender studies from a list of approved master's programs, though students already enrolled will be grandfathered in.

"The Hungarian government is of the clear view that people are born either men or women," Orban's chief of staff said recenlty, according to Fox News. "They lead their lives the way they think best, but beyond this, the Hungarian state does not wish to spend public funds on education in this area."

Top Democrat's Lead Vanishes Amid Fallout From Domestic Abuse Allegations

By Rick Pearcey • October 16, 2018, 09:55 AM

Lukas Mikelionis reports at Fox News:

Embattled Democrat Rep. Keith Ellison’s lead in the Minnesota Attorney General election appears to be vanishing amid allegations of domestic violence against his ex-girlfriend.

The congressman's bid to become the top law enforcement official in the blue state was supposed to be an easy task for a popular Democrat who holds one of the top positions within the Democratic National Committee (DNC).

But Ellison's lead has taken a dramatic cut since Karen Monahan came forward with her story in August detailing the physical and emotional abuse she suffered allegedly at the hands of Ellison.

"In one particular incident, Ellison allegedly [] dragged her from a bed and shouted 'F--- you, b---' and 'I hate you'," Mikelionis reports. "She also released a 2017 medical document in which she identified the congressman as the cause of her 'emotional and physical abuse'."

"Recent polls indicate that Ellison [is] in a dead heat race with Doug Wardlow, the Republican opponent, according to the New York Times," Mikelionis reports.

"The poll also found that 40 percent [of] surveyed voters said the domestic abuse allegations 'are a factor' in whether to vote for the Democrat," according to Mikelionis. "Another poll shows the congressman leading by five points."

"Gosnell" Movie Profiling Serial-Killer Abortionist Breaks Top 10 Nationally

By Rick Pearcey • October 15, 2018, 01:06 PM

Steven Ertelt writes at LifeNews.com:

Despite a media blackout and virtually no coverage outside conservative media circles, the new movie Gosnell made the list of top 10 movies across the United States over the weekend.

Coming in at the #10 spot, Gosnell came in ahead of other movies with much wider releases -- as the film is appearing in just 673 theaters nationwide. 

Despite the more limited release, Gosnell outperformed A Simple Favor, The Nun, and the blockbuster film Crazy Rich Asians . . . .

Had Gosnell opened in 2,800 theaters like other movies in the top 10 list it would have finished in 7th place for the weekend -- making it more popular per theater than The House With a Clock in Its Walls and Bad Times at the El Royale.

"Those who are watching the movie are giving in tremendously high ratings. It has a 67% rating at Rotten Tomatoes and 99% of those viewing it said they liked it," Ertelt writes.

Professor: Hurricane Victims "Reaping" Their Decision to Elect "Climate Deniers"

By Rick Pearcey • October 11, 2018, 03:51 PM

Michael Bastasch writes at the Daily Caller:

Does University of St. Thomas thermal sciences professor John Abraham actually believe Florida Panhandle residents deserved to get hit by a catastrophic hurricane for electing "climate deniers?"

"Victims of Hurricane Michael voted for climate deniers," reads the headline an article by Abraham, published in The Guardian Thursday.

"Elections have consequences. Denying science has consequences. And we are reaping what we sow," the subhead reads.

"Despite the lack of science to support for his case, Abraham blames Michael's intensity on man-made global warming, leading to his subsequent claim that southern voters brought this upon themselves by voting Republicans into office," Bastasch states.

"The United Nation's latest climate report, released Sunday, found there's little to no evidence global warming is making hurricanes more extreme or intense," Bastasch writes.

"Numerous studies towards and beyond AR5 have reported a decreasing trend in the global number of tropical cyclones and/or the globally accumulated cyclonic energy," the most recent report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change found, according to the Daily Caller.

Michelle Malkin: In 2 Days, the Most Important Movie You've Never Heard Of

By Rick Pearcey • October 10, 2018, 01:43 PM

Michelle Malkin writes at CR:

It's here.

Gosnell: The Trial of America’s Biggest Serial Killer debuts in theaters nationwide on Oct. 12. I do believe this groundbreaking film by indie producers Phelim McAleer and Ann McElhinney is the most important movie in America right now -- a true-life saga of good vs. evil, deadly medical malpractice, systemic government malfeasance and cultural apathy toward the most vulnerable members of our society.

I first reported on this real-life horror story nearly eight years ago, but you've probably not heard or read a word about Gosnell in the mainstream press, TV news or online. The conspiracy of silence is the result of both malign neglect and active suppression of inconvenient truths.

Malkin provides some of the particulars behind the silence regarding Gosnell:  

  • CNN "Lack of Interest": "One CNN commentator flippantly explained that the network's lack of interest was a 'business decision,' not bias"
  • Kickstarter Censorship: "Pro-abortion censors at crowdsourcing giant Kickstarter banned McAleer and McElhinney from raising money for the project leading small donors across the country to help conduct the largest-ever crowdfunded movie on Indiegogo. (Full disclosure: I put my money where my principles are and donated three times, in addition to using my social media platforms to lend a hand.)"
  • NPR Ad Blocking: "Taxpayer-supported National Public Radio refused to run sponsored ads describing Gosnell as an 'abortionist' because its legal department determined the accurate description violated the left-leaning network's 'value neutral' platform. LOL."
  • Facebook Banning: "This past week, Facebook banned advertising for the movie -- a continuation of its systemic crackdown on conservative speech."

"What are they trying to hide?" Malkin asks.

Kavanaugh Catapults Marsha Blackburn Into Lead in Key Tennessee Senate Race

By Rick Pearcey • October 9, 2018, 03:12 PM

David M. Drucker reports at the Washington Examiner:

Republican Rep. Marsha Blackburn holds her first sustained lead in the race for an open Tennessee Senate seat, catapulted ahead of Democrat Phil Bredesen by the partisan battle to confirm newly minted Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

The Kavanaugh clash has awakened complacent Republicans and motivated conservative voters blasé about President Trump to rally around the GOP flag. The development is hobbling Bredesen, a popular former governor, undercutting his crossover appeal with rank-and-file Republicans and diminishing the Democratic Party's critical enthusiasm edge.

"Blackburn cruised past Bredesen in two public opinion polls conducted at the apex of the Kavanaugh controversy," according to the Examiner.

"The fresh data suggests the episode has nationalized the Tennessee contest and led Republicans open to voting for the Democrat to retreat to their partisan bunkers," the Examiner reports. "In one survey, Blackburn topped Bredesen by 8 percentage points; in another, she was in front by 5 points."

Susan Collins: "They Actually Threatened to Rape One of My Young Female Staffers"

By Rick Pearcey • October 8, 2018, 12:00 PM

From an article titled, "Left Turns Vicious on Sen. Susan Collins," at WND:

Three weeks ago, Maine Republican Susan Collins was the darling of those opposing Kavanaugh's Supreme Court confirmation.

USA Today reported back then: "Kavanaugh's opponents have identified Collins, along with Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski, as Senate Republicans who could potentially vote against Trump's Supreme Court pick. The opposition is largely driven by abortion-rights activists' fear that Kavanaugh could be the justice whose vote overturns the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade decision."

Flash forward to Saturday, when Collins stunned the left with her right hook. Today, the senator's office has reported receiving threatening calls and letters as well as more than 3,000 wire coat hangers in grim a reference to the unsafe, illegal abortions that abortion-rights defenders say would follow the end of Roe v. Wade.

And a controversial crowdfunding campaign has raised more than $1.1 million to give to a future Collins opponent if she votes to confirm Kavanaugh.

"Collins told the Wall Street Journal that she finds 'the out-of-state voicemails being left on the answering machines of my state offices" to be "incredibly offensive," WND states.

"In one case -- and we are going to turn this over to the police, but unfortunately, of course, the person didn't leave a name or number -- but they actually threatened to rape one of my young female staffers," Collins said, according to WND.

Feminist Journal Accepted Hoax Anti-Male Re-Write of Hitler's "Mein Kampf"

By Rick Pearcey • October 5, 2018, 02:53 PM

Tim Ciccotta reports at Breitbart:

A feminist academic journal published a hoax paper based on Adolph Hitler's “Mein Kampf” that had been rewritten with feminist buzzwords.

As a part of a wide-ranging hoax against various academic journals, Helen Pluckrose, James Lindsay, and Peter Boghossian submitted a reimagining of Adolph Hitler's Mein Kampf to a feminist journal for publication.

The team of hoaxers submitted a version of "Mein Kampf" that had been rewritten from the perspective of an intersectional feminist.

The paper, which was titled, "Our Struggle Is My Struggle: Solidarity Feminism as an Intersectional Reply to Neoliberal and Choice Feminism," received strong praise from its reviewers in academia.

"The reviewers are supportive of the work and noted its potential to generate important dialogue for social workers and feminist scholars," the journal’s co-editor-in-chief said upon first review.

Nancy Pelosi Describes Supernatural Encounter With Pro-Life Feminists

By Rick Pearcey • October 4, 2018, 04:25 PM

Emily Ward reports at CNSNews.com:

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) told the Texas Tribune on Saturday that she felt famous feminists "crowding" her in her chair during her first meeting with President George W. Bush at the White House after becoming part of the Democratic leadership in the House of Representatives.

"I'd never had this experience before, but I was just crowded in in my chair and I was like, What is happening here?" Pelosi told an audience at the Sept. 29 interview.

"And then I realized," Pelosi said, "that, sitting on the chair with me in that White House meeting while President Bush was speaking, was Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Alice Paul, Sojourner Truth, Lucretia Mott, they were all right there on the chair with me. And I heard them say, 'At last we have a seat at the table.'"

"Three of these women -- Anthony, Stanton and Paul -- were also pro-life, in contrast to Pelosi's pro-abortion views," Ward writes.

"In her interview, Pelosi suggested that a woman's 'right' to have an abortion was non-negotiable, Ward continues.

"One place you can't find common ground, I can just tell you this, is on the issue of a woman's right to choose. That is the thing that is an absolute," Pelosi said, CNSNews reports.

"According to Feminists for Life, a nonprofit, nonpartisan grassroots organization which opposes abortion, Paul held a very different point of view," Ward reports. "When feminists began to link the Equal Rights Act (ERA) with abortion, Paul 'opposed' this trend, saying, 'Abortion is the ultimate in the exploitation of women'."

Father of Parkland Victim Blasts Actress Alyssa Milano: Should "Learn Her Facts"

By Rick Pearcey • October 2, 2018, 12:16 PM

Ryan Gaydos reports at Fox News:

The father of a victim in the Parkland high school shooting blasted actress Alyssa Milano on Monday after she blamed the National Rifle Association for his daughter's death.

Andrew Pollack, whose daughter, Meadow, was killed in February when a gunman opened fire at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., said Milano should "learn her facts before she speaks."

"The FBI, Sherrif Israel, mental illness counselors, school administrators & failed diversionary programs are to blame," Pollack said in a tweet. "Not the NRA."

Prosecutor's Report: 9 Reasons Blasey Ford Not Credible

By Rick Pearcey • October 1, 2018, 02:35 PM

John Nolte writes at Breitbart

Rachel Mitchell, the veteran sex crimes prosecutor chosen by Republican members of the Senate Judiciary Committee to question Christine Blasey Ford and Brett Kavanaugh, has filed a report that points out Ford's inconsistencies and apparent deceptions.

"In the legal context, here is my bottom line," she writes.

"A 'he said, she said' case is incredibly difficult to prove. But this case is even weaker than that.

"I do not think that a reasonable prosecutor would bring this case based on the evidence."

She adds, "Nor do I believe that this evidence is sufficient to satisfy the preponderance-of-the-evidence standard." This means Ford's story does no reach the 50-50 level of more likely than not.

The Washington, D.C. chapter of Antifa sent a message to Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz early Tuesday morning after chasing him out of a restaurant, telling the Texas senator that he is "not safe."

Poll: Congress Approval at 19%

By Rick Pearcey • September 24, 2018, 12:21 PM

Michael W. Chapman reports at CNSNews.com:

Only 19% of Americans approve of the job Congress is doing this September, which is up from 17% in August, but within the 15%-20% range of approval for the year so far, according to a new survey. . . .

"Congressional approval has averaged 30% since Gallup began measuring it in 1974," said the polling firm. "The current 19% approval among Americans is well below that average, but similar to Americans' sentiments through most of the period since January of last year."

Scientific Studies Behind Obama School Lunch Program Retracted

By Rick Pearcey • September 21, 2018, 02:12 PM

Rick Moran writes at American Thinker:

We all know that the nutrition industry has more than its share of fakes, charlatans, and snake oil salesmen. But it was thought that scientific studies published in the prestigious Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) had the advantage of being peer-reviewed and critiqued by objective experts.

That may be so. But the scandal involving one of the most popular -- and most published -- nutrition researchers in the world should make us question everything we've been told about how to eat healthy.

JAMA announced that it is retracting (removing from publication) six studies on nutrition by Cornell University food scientist Brian Wansink. That brings the total number of studies by Wansink that have been pulled to 13. And there are 15 other studies by the good doctor that are under review.

Cornell announced that Wansink is resigning his post at the end of the term. But the damage he has done to the credibility of the nutrition industry -- and the social sciences in general -- is only beginning to be understood. . . . 

It turns out, Moran continues, that "some of these studies were used to justify the reasoning behind the Obama school lunch programs."

Kavanaugh Accuser's Classmate Changes Tune: "That It Happened or Not, I Have No Idea"

By Rick Pearcey • September 20, 2018, 01:24 PM

Melanie Arter reports at CNSNews.com:

A classmate of Christine Blasey Ford is now changing her story, saying she doesn't actually know whether an alleged sexual assault by Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh took place like she suggested it did on social media.

In a Facebook post Wednesday, Cristina King Miranda initially wrote, "Christine Blasey Ford was a year or so behind me, I remember her. This incident did happen. Many of us heard about it in school and Christine's recollection should be more than enough for us to truly, deeply know that the accusation is true."

Miranda also wrote that, "Even before Christine came forward," she was against Kavanaugh's nomination. "I was and still am completely against his nomination."

"I do not want him representing me or making decisions on my behalf in the Supreme Court as he goes against everything sacred to me as a woman, mother, daughter, latina, American and professional. No matter how fine a person and 'upstanding' citizen he may be," Miranda added.

"Now Miranda says she has 'no idea' whether the incident happened," CNSNews reports.

"That it happened or not, I have no idea," Miranda is quoted as telling Nina Totenberg of NPR.

"I can't say that it did or didn't."

Miranda "further explained that she was 'empowered' in her Facebook post claiming that she knew about the alleged incident, but at the time she had 'no idea' she would be required to 'go to the specifics' about her knowledge and 'defend it before 50 cable channels'," according to CNSNews.

Poll: Ted Cruz +9 Over Beto O'Rourke

By Rick Pearcey • September 19, 2018, 01:10 PM

Patrick Svitek reports at Texas Tribune:

U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, leads his Democratic challenger Beto O'Rourke by 9 percentage points among likely voters, according to a new poll from Quinnipiac University.

Released Tuesday, the survey found Cruz with 54 percent support and O'Rourke, an El Paso congressman, with 45 percent. Only 1 percent of those polled were undecided.

"The Texas U.S. Senate race between Sen. Ted Cruz and Congressman Beto O'Rourke, and Democratic hopes for an upset win there, have boosted talk of a Senate takeover," Peter Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll, said in a news release.

"These numbers may calm that talk."

Kavanaugh Ex-Girlfriend: "He Was Nothing but Kind," "Polite," "Respectful"

Andrew Kugle reports at the Washington Free Beacon:

Two ex-girlfriends of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh defended his character on Monday amid an allegation that he committed sexual assault when he was in high school.

"He was nothing but kind and polite and respectful," Maura Fitzgerald said. Fitzgerald dated Kavanaugh in college and was friends with him throughout high school.

"I had known him since high school. I dated him briefly in college. We have remained close friends ever since. I cherish his friendship. He has just been such a stand-up guy, full of integrity. I admire him. He . . . treated no one with disrespect."

Wyoming Hunting Guide Fatally Mauled by Grizzly Bears

By Rick Pearcey • September 17, 2018, 12:28 PM

Ryan Gaydos reports at Fox News:

A Wyoming hunting guide was fatally mauled and his client was injured when a pair of grizzly bears attacked them Friday, officials said.

Authorities later euthanized two grizzly bears, a mother and a cub, who wildlife managers believe killed guide Mark Uptain and wounded his client Corey Chubon near the Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks border, according to USA Today.

“All available evidence indicates that these two bears were the bears involved in the Terrace Mountain attack," Wyoming Game and Fish Department spokeswoman Rebekah Fitzgerald said in a statement Sunday.

"Uptain and Chubon were attacked by bears as they field dressed the elk they had shot," officials reportedly said, according to Fox News.

"The deadly incident came weeks after a federal judge halted Wyoming state officials' plans to hold a grizzly hunt this month, according to USA Today," Fox News reports. "The hunt was put on hold until Oct. 1."

"I can only imagine how horrific this was," hunting guide Sy Gilliland told USA Today, according to Fox. "You've got a bear population that's basically un-hunted, is an apex predator, and has no fear of humans."

This Economy Definitely Not Obama's Recovery

By Rick Pearcey • September 13, 2018, 02:09 PM

Stephen Moore writes at the NYPost:

Barack Obama is trying to take credit for the booming economy under President Trump. "When you hear how great the economy is doing right now," Obama said on the campaign trail for Democratic candidates a few days ago, "let's just remember when this recovery started."

By this logic, the Kingston Trio laid the groundwork for the Beatles.

But the contrast in economic performance between the two presidents is undeniable. Obama's multitrillion-dollar spend-and-borrow policies produced 2 percent growth. In his final year, Obama handed off to Trump an economy that was limping at 1.6 percent.

"After only 18 months in office, Trump has elevated growth to 3 percent on an annual rate and the latest projections are that the growth rate for the second and third quarter (which ends Sept. 30) will be over 4 percent," Moore notes.

"One might say all it took to get the economy really crackling was getting Obama out of office," he states.

"The real economic boom started almost the day after the election in 2016 with the surge in small business, investor and consumer confidence," Moore writes.

"No one on the left, least of all Obama, thought this was remotely possible."

Cougar Apparently Kills "Avid" Woman Hiker in Oregon

By Rick Pearcey • September 12, 2018, 02:30 PM

Nicole Darrah reports at Fox News:

An Oregon woman who had been reported missing nearly two weeks ago was most likely killed by a cougar in an "unprecedented event," investigators revealed Tuesday.

The body of Diana Bober, 55, was found Monday off a trail in the Mt. Hood National Forest in Welches, about 40 miles southeast of Portland, according to the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office.

The medical examiner's office determined that wounds found on Bober's body were "consistent with a suspected cougar attack," and ruled out the possibility that she was mauled after she died from a separate cause.

The sheriff's office advises the following when "anywhere in cougar country": 

  • Be aware of your surroundings at all times
  • Hike in groups. Keep your dog close to you or on a leash
  • Make noise to alert wildlife of your presence
  • Keep children close to you
  • Be especially alert at dawn and dusk when cougars are most active.

To this I would add: Consider carrying a firearm to protect your own life and those of friends and family.

In a natural world both beautiful and brutal, preparation could provide a means of life-saving self-defense against both 4-legged and 2-legged predators.

There may be only one occasion when you need to act. But your readiness that one time could make all the difference in the world. 

Hiking is great. So is going home again.

Scarborough: Donald Trump "Far Graver Threat to the Idea of America" Than 9/11

By Rick Pearcey • September 11, 2018, 03:18 PM

Joshua Caplan reports at Breitbart:

In an opinion editorial published by The Washington Post Monday, MSNBC Morning Joe host Joe Scarborough claimed President Donald Trump poses a "far graver threat to the idea of America" than the September 11 attacks.

Scarborough's piece, titled "Trump is harming the dream of America more than any foreign adversary ever could," begins with the virulent Trump critic chronicling various foreign policy blunders committed by previous White Houses following the fateful terror attacks on September 11, 2001.

The culmination of such "tragic lessons" -- including then-President George W. Bush's invasion of Iraq without sufficient evidence tying Saddam Hussein to the attacks and subsequent death of 5,000 U.S. troops at a cost of $2 trillion  -- Scarborough writes that America's diminishing position on the global stage under President Trump, makes the current administration more dangerous than the 9/11 attacks themselves.

Jim Carrey to HBO's Bill Maher: "We Have to Say Yes to Socialism"

By Rick Pearcey • September 10, 2018, 01:57 PM

Valerie Richardson reports at the WTimes

Comedian Jim Carrey says Democrats need to stop running from Republican attacks and "say yes to socialism."

"We have to say yes to socialism -- to the word and everything," Mr. Carrey said Friday on HBO's "Real Time with Bill Maher." "We have to stop apologizing."

His comment came after Mr. Maher complained that Republicans have targeted progressive Democrats who identify themselves as socialist by throwing up the Venezuela example.

"Brent Bozell, president of the conservative Media Research Center, called on Mr. Carrey to set an example by giving away his own wealth," Richardson reports.

"Why do people who made $20 million a movie talk up socialism?," Bozell tweeted. "Hey Jim Carrey! If income inequality is the scourge of our time, maybe you should just hand away all your own millions first!"

Brazil Stabber: Socialist "on a Mission From God"

By Rick Pearcey • September 7, 2018, 10:44 AM

James Barrett reports at Daily Wire:

The man who stabbed a far-right Brazilian presidential candidate who has been described as "Brazil's Donald Trump" is reportedly a socialist on a self-described "mission from God."

In a shocking moment caught on video, Brazil's leading presidential candidate Jair Bolsonaro was stabbed with a knife while being carried by a crowd during an afternoon rally in Juiz de Fora, Minas Gerais, in south east Brazil on Thursday.

Bolsonaro, 63, was rushed to a hospital and underwent what turned out to be life-saving surgery for what officials say were serious internal injuries. He is currently in stable condition.

The suspect, a 40-year-old man, was arrested by police, who say he declared himself to be "on a mission from God."

Gold Star Mom: Nike Owes "America an Apology"

By Rick Pearcey • September 6, 2018, 03:44 PM

Katherine Rodriguez reports at Breitbart:

A Gold Star mother is the latest to speak out against Nike’s latest "Just Do It" ad campaign featuring former NFL player Colin Kaepernick for making light of the word "sacrifice."

Trina Hart, who lost her 21-year-old Marine son Ty Hart when his helicopter went down off the coast of the Hawaiian island of Oahu during a mission in 2016, is blasting Nike for using Kaepernick as its spokesperson for an ad about "sacrifice," KOIN reported.

The Nike ad, which Kaepernick narrates, features stories from athletes who overcame illness or disabilities . . . .

"Hart said the ad belittles those like her son, who made the ultimate sacrifice in fighting for the U.S.," Rodriguez writes. 

"Everything is your life," Hart is quoted as saying. "My son sacrificed his life."

"Those other 11 men the night my son died sacrificed their lives. I'm sorry, I don't find any 'sacrificing everything' in what Colin Kaepernick did."

Nike owes "America an apology. They owe Gold Star families an apology," Hart said, according to Breitbart.

Feinstein Invited Parkland Father Who Tried Ambush Handshake on Kavanaugh

By Rick Pearcey • September 5, 2018, 01:17 PM

Kristinn Taylor writes at Gateway Pundit:

Fred Guttenberg, the father of 14-year-old Jaime Guttenberg who was slain in the Parkland school massacre last February, tried to ambush Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh with an attempted photo-op handshake as the hearing went to break Tuesday after the morning session.

The day before, Guttenberg had posted to Twitter a vow to "play a role in ensuring that this man does not become the next Supreme Court Justice."

Guttenberg also posted that he would be attending the hearing as a guest of Sen. Dianne Feinstien (D-CA), the ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Here's what Guttenberg tweeted after his encounter with Kavanaugh: "Just walked up to Judge Kavanaugh as morning session ended. Put out my hand to introduce myself as Jaime Guttenberg's dad. He pulled his hand back, turned his back to me and walked away. I guess he did not want to deal with the reality of gun violence."

"Andrew Pollack, a fellow father of a student slain at Parkland, 18-year-old Meadow Pollack, ripped Guttenberg on Twitter for going after Kavanaugh," Taylor states.

Here is Pollack's tweet:

"Judge Kavanaugh was not responsible for the Parkland school shooting that killed my daughter. @RobertwRuncie, FBI, and Sheriff Israel are. Judge Kavanaugh is a decent man and should be confirmed. Stop weaponizing Parkland to advance a dangerous political agenda!"

Border Agent: Why "Walls Work"

By Rick Pearcey • September 4, 2018, 04:21 PM

Craig Bannister writes at CNSNews.com:

"As a border patrol agent, I can tell you: Walls do work," a U.S. Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) attests, citing the success of barriers built on the San Diego border, in a CBP video.

In a video explaining why borders walls are an essential component of border security, the agent recounts how the institution of border walls in San Diego has resulted in a 87 percent reduction in annual apprehensions of illegal aliens – from 560,000 to 68,000.

"The agent also explains how border security measures, such as border walls, have benefitted the environment and also transformed a 'lawless wasteland' into thriving communities," Bannister continues.

"In areas where we constructed barriers, deployed more agents, and gained back control of the border, natural habitats damaged by illegal migration have recovered. Piles of discarded debris disappeared. Neighborhoods and businesses replaced what was once lawless wasteland," the agent says on the U.S. Customs and Border Control video.

American Heroes Aldrin & Yeager Blast Phony Flag-Revised Moon-Landing Flick

By Rick Pearcey • September 3, 2018, 04:18 PM

Monica Showalter writes at American Thinker:

Hard to find bigger living American heroes than sound-barrier-breaking Gen. Chuck Yeager, and famed astronaut Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin.

So now that we have a revisionist movie coming out called First Man, from the Canadian director of La-La Land, which omits the American flag from its history of first man on the moon, astronaut Neil Armstrong, it's heartening to see the big guns -- the big, big, guns, come out and declare it the phony garbage it is.

"The flag meant something to these men and they're the one[s] with the biggest standing to say something," Showalter writes. "It's heartening for all of us in this era of revisionist history, statue-toppling, and other crap designed to make America smaller, that they were still here to say something and they refused to stand for it."

Drunk Driver Who Allegedly Killed Oregon Couple Is Illegal Alien From Mexico

By Rick Pearcey • August 31, 2018, 04:04 PM

Will Racke reports at the Daily Caller:

The man suspected of killing an Oregon couple in a high-speed drunk driving collision earlier in August is an illegal immigrant from Mexico, The Daily Caller News Foundation learned.

Eduardo de la Lima Vargas, 39, allegedly ran a red light on a state highway in Salem, Oregon, on Aug. 19, striking a motorcycle being driven by Logan Wilson, 34, and his wife Jessi, 32. The collision tossed the Wilsons from the motorcycle, fatally injuring both.

Research by Salem-based David Olen Cross shows that "about three-quarters of all criminal aliens in Oregon's prison system are serving time for what the FBI defines as violent crimes -- murder and non-negligent manslaughter, forcible rape, robbery and aggravated assault -- or sex crimes under the Oregon criminal code," the DC reports.

"Of the 943 Oregon state prison inmates with active ICE detainers as of July, 731 -- 77 percent -- have been convicted of those violent crimes or sex offenses, according to Cross's latest report," the DC reports. "That compares to about 60 percent of 'domestic' inmates who were convicted of the same offenses."

Oregon is "one of the nation's most active states when it comes to limiting cooperation between local law enforcement and federal immigration authorities," according to the DC.

Comment: The crime rate for illegal aliens ought to be zero. Illegal aliens should not be in the U.S. to commit violent crimes and sex crimes in the first place.

An individual not in the U.S. clearly cannot therefore commit murder, manslaughter, rape, or any other number of violent and/or sexual offenses in the U.S. 

Open borders is an attack on American people. Those who espouse open borders are allowing a social cancer into the American body politic. Even a smidgeon can kill you or members of your family.

After criticizing social media platforms for mass-censoring conservatives and the alternative media earlier this month, President Trump has turned his attention to Google. Not a moment too soon -- of all the politically biased tech giants, Google is by far the most dangerous.

Trump's critical comments about Google referenced statistics from a report in PJ Media which found that a staggering 96 percent of search results for "Trump" return results from news sites that are hostile to the President. Breitbart News’ own investigation found the same result.

Man in Women's Clothes Caught Taking Video Under Bathroom Stalls: Cops

By Rick Pearcey • August 28, 2018, 11:14 AM

Associated Press reports:

Authorities say a man wearing a wig, makeup, and women's clothing tried to take a picture of a woman from under the stall divider of a South Carolina convenience store bathroom.

Greenville Police said a woman told investigators she knocked on a stall door Sunday and heard a male voice, but wasn't initially bothered after peeking under the door and seeing women's shoes.

"But police say the woman then saw a cellphone appear under the divider from the next stall and called 911," according to AP.

"Police told media outlets they arrested 38-year-old Shawn Thomas Hallett of Levelland, Texas, after finding a video of the woman on his phone. He was charged with voyeurism," AP reports.

ESPN's Kellerman "Angry" Tiger Woods Defends Trump

By Rick Pearcey • August 27, 2018, 04:03 PM

Trent Baker reports at Breitbart:

Monday, ESPN "First Take" co-host Max Kellerman responded to golfer Tiger Woods saying people need to "respect the presidency" when it comes to President Trump. Kellerman said Woods’ remarks bother him and make him "angry."

This is a lesson in how mind control and population control work in the great land of toleration. In this genteel country, plantation bosses and their lackeys keep close wach on highly prized slaves lest one or some gets uppity thoughts about thinking for themselves and living freely for themselves. 

And ol' Tiger Woods is showing signs of not exactly being with the program. Woods failed to condemn Trump, and the pointy heads at ESPNKKK are making it their business to remind Tiger of his place in their world. 

You see, Tiger, no matter how human you are, your'e still always just going to be just a black, a person of color, a slave -- in the eyes of those who think pigment -- not character, not mind, not you -- is what matters. That is essential to how the racism racket works today.

In today's racism, blacks as blacks have to hate Trump. They have to ask "How High" when the media say, "Hate!" 

For all the talk we hear about resistance, what we're seeing is reactionaries clutching their pearls and purses when a real rebel shows up -- Norman! There's a black man over there acting like he's something special!

Yes, Mildred:Thinking while black is very, very threatening. O the scandal of human behavior!

You play their game or get whipped. In public. Must make an example out of Tiger!

Don't want any other fellers getting strange ideas.

Slavery despises humanity.

Don't let them catch you, Tiger.

Facebook Bans Pastor's Ad: "Love God, Defend America"

By Rick Pearcey • August 24, 2018, 02:09 PM

Author and radio talk show host Todd Starnes writes:

The Facebook Overlords are at it again, folks.

The latest victim is Steve Solomon -- a radio host, pastor and Army veteran from Knoxville, Tennessee. Pastor Solomon wanted to purchase Facebook ads to promote his radio program.

"Speak the truth, Love God, Defend America" -- [that] was the pastor's message. But Facebook rejected the advertisement claiming it was political.

"Nothing about the ad is political," Pastor Solomon countered as he contacted the Todd Starnes Radio Show.

"If anything, it's heavily spiritual and moral," Starnes quotes Solomon as saying.

"I'm a pastor and served in the U.S. Army in Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom (Afghanistan), so I LITERALLY defended America," the pastor wrote, according to Starnes.

"Encouraging people to be honest, love God, and love America is nothing controversial," Solomon stated.

"There seems to be a concerted effort by a group of militant social media goons to purge any content they find offensive or contrary to their ideology," Starnes comments. "Apparently, there is no room in their freedom-stifling world for conservatives, Christians or patriots."

Canada: "Let's Eradicate Gun Violence by Criminalizing All Gun Possession"

By Rick Pearcey • August 23, 2018, 11:04 AM

Presswire releases the following statement from the Mosaic Institute in Toronto: 

Today, the Mosaic Institute released its policy paper, Let's Eradicate Gun Violence by Criminalizing All Gun Possession. The piece outlines the Institute's position and recommendation on gun possession across Canada -- stating that in order to address the primary cause of gun violence (i.e. possession), the country must take a strong stance and federally criminalize possession of all firearms.

With 50% more shootings in 2018 than 2014 in Toronto and a spate of recent shootings including the Danforth, Toronto multiple incidents and the Fredericton incident, more needs to be done to keep Canadians safe. Last weekend, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau joined Canadians in extending thoughts and prayers to the victims and affected communities of the Fredericton shooting.

The Mosaic Institute encourages Canadians and the federal government to take a harder line on possession, recommending the following:

  • Criminalize possession of all guns (with the exception of police, military, hunters and gun clubs)
  • Set aside a fund to buy back weapons
  • Ratify the United Nations Protocol on Firearms Control

Democrat Socialist Ocasio-Cortez Laments Coffee Shop's Closure -- Over Wage Hikes She Supports

By Rick Pearcey • August 22, 2018, 10:57 AM

Lukas Mikelionis reports at Fox News:

New York Democratic socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez portrays herself as "a normal, working person," but one of her positions may have helped 150 people lose their jobs.

After enduring mockery for declaring Sunday that a walk in a national park was an example of democratic socialism, Ocasio-Cortez lamented Monday the shutting down of an iconic New York coffee shop that closed mostly due to a higher minimum wage -- which Ocasio-Cortez supported.

"The restaurant I used to work at is closing its doors. I swung by today to say hi one last time, and kid around with friends like old times," the congressional candidate reminisced on Twitter. "I'm a normal, working person who chose to run for office, because I believe we can have a better future."

"The Coffee Shop in Union Square, which became especially famous after regularly appearing on HBO's 'Sex and the City,' will close down this fall after nearly 28 years in business," Fox continues. "Co-owner and President Charles Milite announced the decision to shut the doors to its 150 employees last month.

"But unlike what Ocasio-Cortez wants you to believe about the closing down," Fox reports, "it wasn't the result of greedy capitalists trying to squeeze the workers, but rather government regulations that forced the company to go bust."

"The times have changed in our industry," Milite told the NYPost, according to Fox. "The rents are very high and now the minimum wage is going up and we have a huge number of employees."

Trump Dares Political "Hack" Brennan to Sue Over Security Clearances

By Rick Pearcey • August 20, 2018, 02:13 PM

Jordan Fabian reports at The Hill:

President Trump on Monday dared former CIA Director John Brennan to sue him over his decision to revoke his security clearance.

In a tweet, Trump claimed a lawsuit would reveal reams of documents that "show not only the poor job he did, but how he was involved with the Mueller Rigged Witch Hunt."

"I hope John Brennan, the worst CIA Director in our country's history, brings a lawsuit," Trump wrote.

In separate Tweets, Trump describes Brennan as a "political 'hack'" and predicts the ex-CIA boss "won't sue!"

Sacramento Bee Begs Pelosi NOT to Run for Speaker Again

By Rick Pearcey • August 17, 2018, 12:24 PM

"In a blistering indictment of her party-damaging personal ambitions, the Sacramento Bee editorial board published an editorial imploring Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi to 'forget being speaker' -- so she doesn't end up wrecking her party's chances to win back the House in November," James Barrett reports at Daily Wire

"The Republican Party is now clearly the party of Donald Trump," the Bee editorial board states, according to Barrett. "The Democratic Party cannot be seen as the party of Nancy Pelosi and win in November," the editorial board warns

MSNBC Panel Mocks Gov. Andrew Cuomo for Saying America "Was Never That Great" -- Video

By Rick Pearcey • August 16, 2018, 12:51 PM

Mike Brest reports at the Daily Caller:

A "Morning Joe" panel mocked Gov. Andrew Cuomo for saying that America was "never really great" and his subsequent response to being called out by the president on Thursday morning.

The segment began with fill-in host Willie Geist introducing and airing the clip of Cuomo from yesterday. They went on to show President Trump’s condemnation of Cuomo, followed by the Governor's response to the president.

Geist then said, "The governor's press secretary issued a statement that reads in part, 'The governor believes America is great.' Never a good day when you have to come out and explicitly clarify that you believe America is great."

White House: Media Dividing Our Country More Than Donald Trump

By Rick Pearcey • August 15, 2018, 09:56 AM

Charlie Spiering writes at Breitbart:

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders accused the media of dividing America on Tuesday, after a series of questions from reporters about whether President Donald Trump was racist.

"Frankly, if we want to look at who's creating divisions in the country, I think the media has done more to divide this country, certainly far more than this president ever has," Sanders said during a press briefing at the White House.

Russian Collusion: It Was Hillary Clinton All Along

By Rick Pearcey • August 14, 2018, 10:55 AM

At Investor's Business Daily:

It's beginning to look as if claims of monstrous collusion between Russian officials and U.S. political operatives were true. But it wasn't Donald Trump who was guilty of Russian collusion. It was Hillary Clinton and U.S. intelligence officials who worked with Russians and others to entrap Trump.

That's the stunning conclusion of a RealClear Investigations report by Lee Smith, who looked in-depth at the controversial June 2016 Trump Tower meeting between officials of then-candidate Donald Trump's campaign staff and a Russian lawyer known to have ties with high-level officials in Vladimir Putin's government.

The media have spun a tale of Trump selling his soul to the Russians for campaign dirt to use against Hillary, beginning with the now-infamous Trump Tower meeting.

"But 'a growing body of evidence . . . indicates that the meeting may have been a setup -- part of a broad effort to tarnish the Trump campaign involving Hillary Clinton operatives employed by Kremlin-linked figures and Department of Justice officials'," Smith writes, according to IBD.

FBI Fires Peter Strzok -- "Legal Troubles" for Disgraced, Anti-Trump Ex-Agent "Are Far From Over"

By Rick Pearcey • August 13, 2018, 02:14 PM

Joshua Caplan reports at Breitbart:

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) terminated special agent Peter Strzok on Friday, according to reports. Strzok's attorney, Aitan Goelman, says the firing was ordered by FBI Deputy Director David L. Bowdich, after the department which oversees personal disciplinary matters ruled the disgraced FBI agent would face a "demotion and 60-day suspension."

Strzok was one primary subject in the highly anticipated Justice Department inspector general report released in July on the Justice Department and Federal Bureau of Investigation's (FBI) handling of Hillary Clinton email investigation, which found the now-fired agent possessed a "biased state of mind" and a “willingness to take action” during the probe.

Text messages exchanged between Strzok and then-FBI lawyer and his alleged lover, Lisa Page, showed the now-fired agent disdained Donald Trump's candidacy during the 2016 presidential election.

Among the explosive exchanges, Page sent a text message to Strzok asking "[Trump's] not ever going to become president right? Right?!" Strzok replied, "No. No he won't. We'll stop it."

"Although Strzok is not longer an employee of the FBI, his legal troubles are far from over," according to Breitbart.

PA School District Submits: Releases Propaganda Videos . . . "That Cannot Be Sent to Parents"

By Rick Pearcey • August 10, 2018, 12:34 PM

A press release from Liberty Counsel:

The East Penn School District has submitted to Liberty Counsel's demand on behalf of concerned parents and complied with Pennsylvania law, by providing the links to the YouTube videos that were shown to more than 2,000 high school students as part of the district "Unity Week" and promotion of GLSEN's "Day of Silence."

Emmaus High School required the students to watch the videos, which promoted homosexuality, same-sex "marriage" and gender dysphoria, on the school TV system without prior notice to their parents or an opportunity to opt-out.

The school counselor, Kristen Grim, who is also the Gay-Straight Alliance (GSA) faculty sponsor, previously sent a suggested list of YouTube videos to a school employee to be shown during the "Unity Week." However, the school district denied parents' requests for the video links, stating the videos "were pulled from YouTube and other online sources by the students in our GSA club and sent to the TV studio as part of their 'Day of Silence' project."

The district's attorney advised "that these videos cannot be sent to parents, because they are part of a student project," despite the district playing the videos for all students. Parents were left to try to find the videos on their own based on descriptions of the video content provided by the school district and descriptions of the video content as related by their children.

The videos released in the records request are:

1 – Buzzfeed's "9 Questions Gay People Have About Straight People" 
2 - A CBS News story clip "Non-binary: The gender beyond he or she" promoting "gender fluidity" 
3 – "Bill Nye on Sexuality and Gender Spectrum" 
4 – YouTube spotlight "Show your pride. Share your love." #ProudToLove

Liberty Counsel is now reviewing all public records relating to the 2018 event. The records show significant teacher-led involvement and editorial control and faculty promotion of the "student-led" activism of the GSA. In fact, Principal Kieres rewarded faculty who showed support for "Day of Silence."

Kieres stated, "I'm all in for whatever you need. I like the idea of teachers wearing GSA or NPFH shirts if they wish. I am delighted to go on the announcements and read a script. Basically, you tell me what the kids need and I'm in!" An email from Grim to a teacher further reveals the support and promotion of the "Day of Silence" while isolating those faculty, staff and students who chose not to participate.

"The East Penn School District finally submitted to Liberty Counsel's demand and Pennsylvania law and released the links to the four videos and all public records regarding 'Unity Week' and 'Day of Silence'," said Mat Staver, Founder and Chairman of Liberty Counsel.

"It is outrageous that school personnel are violating parents' rights and the law regarding teacher involvement in noncurricular, politically-oriented clubs to promote special-interest propaganda to students," said Staver.

Mainstream Media Panic With Security Guards at Trump Rallies

By Rick Pearcey • August 9, 2018, 12:56 PM

David Krayden reports at the Daily Caller:

According to a POLITICO report, mainstream media reporters are looking for protection at Trump rallies by hiring security.

It may be the first time in history that reporters have asked for such assistance at a presidential event.

Apparently, Trump's oft-repeated comments about the collusion of the mainstream media in providing negative coverage of the president as well as his warnings about "fake news" have set the alarm bells off at the offices of NBC and other big media outlets
. . . 

By the way, "None of the reporters have suggested they have been physically assaulted at any Trump rally," the DC reports.

Emails Reveal Teachers Plotting to Hide Political Bias

By Rick Pearcey • August 8, 2018, 09:59 AM

Art Moore reports at WND:

Emails reveal high-school teachers in a tiny Boston suburb plotting to hide their political bias from parents shortly after President Trump's inauguration.

The history teachers at Newton North High School pledged to reject the "call for objectivity" in the classroom, bully conservative students for their beliefs and serve as "liberal propagandist[s]" for the cause of social justice, the emails show, according to an investigative report published by the Federalist.

Ilya Feoktistov, a board member of the non-profit Americans for Peace and Tolerance, wrote that he obtained the emails under a Massachusetts public-records law after one of the teachers arranged for what he describes as "an anti-Semitic and anti-Israel organization to show Palestinian propaganda films" at Newton North.

But he found that anti-Semitism is "not the only specter haunting the history department at Newton North."

According to WND, "the exchange of emails came after history teacher Isongesit Ibokette complained in February 2017 about new guidelines for avoiding bias in teaching that had been been sent out by Newton Norths principal that morning."

Teachers were reportedly instructed as follows:

For current controversial issues (health care, immigration, environmental policies, gun laws), teach students that there are different perspectives and present the reasoning of those who hold those different perspectives.

"Ibokette, responding to an email from a colleague, objected, declaring in an email to the entire history department his [concern] 'that the call for "objectivity" may just inadvertently become the most effective destructive weapon against social justice'," WND reports.

The Attack on Alex Jones Is a Shameful Attack on Freedom of Speech

By Rick Pearcey • August 7, 2018, 11:13 AM

Joel B. Pollak writes at Breitbart:

Internet provocateur and InfoWars proprietor Alex Jones is being systematically excluded from social media platforms.

This is, plainly, an attack on free speech.

Over the weekend, Facebook removed several Alex Jones-related pages, and Apple deleted many of his podcasts. On Monday, YouTube followed suit by deleting his video channel. Pinterest closed its InfoWars page. Twitter may soon do the same.

The timing is no coincidence: all of these outlets are responding to a campaign by left-wing activists who are determined to shut down conservative voices -- including Breitbart.

It is a shameful effort -- which is why some of those responsible for the boycotts have tried to maintain their anonymity.

Armed Bystander Stops Gunman at Crowded Back-to-School Event at Park

By Rick Pearcey • August 6, 2018, 10:32 AM

Travis Fedshun reports at Fox News:

An armed bystander shot a man who opened fire at a Florida park filled with over 100 people -- including children -- for a Saturday back-to-school cookout, officials said.

The Titusville Police Department said in a news release the man was involved in a fistfight with another person at the Issac Campbell Park and left around 5:20 p.m. -- only to return with a gun minutes later and start shooting.

A bystander, who was lawfully licensed to carry a firearm, then shot the gunman.

"We are extremely grateful that nobody else was injured in this incident," Deputy Chief Todd Hutchinson said, according to Fox News. "This suspect opened fire at a crowded public park. This could have been so much worse."

Brett Samuels reports at The Hill:

Jerry Falwell Jr., the president of Liberty University and a staunch supporter of President Trump, joined the criticism of Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Thursday, calling him a "phony."

"Falwell piled on after a day during which Trump called on Sessions to halt the special counsel's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, marking an escalation in the president's furor over the probe," Samuels writes.
