Why Germany Is Once Again a Threat to the West

By Rick Pearcey • June 27, 2017, 09:49 AM

Nikolaas de Jong argues at American Thinker:

Far from being the defender of Western values like individual liberty and individual rights, the modern Germany is acting in a very German way indeed.

After an adjustment period of some decades following the Second World War, during which the country had to atone for its past misdeeds and keep quiet, Germany is once again trying to impose its rule and a new form of its vicious ideology on Europe and the West.

Auto Insurance Study: Legal Pot in, Car Crashes Up

By Rick Pearcey • June 26, 2017, 09:47 AM

AP reports:

A recent insurance study links increased car crash claims to legalized recreational marijuana.

The Highway Loss Data Institute [HLDI], a leading insurance research group, said in study results released Thursday that collision claims in Colorado, Washington, and Oregon went up 2.7 percent in the years since legal recreational marijuana sales began when compared with surrounding states.

"We believe that the data is saying that crash risk has increased in these states and those crash risks are associated with the legalization of marijuana," AP quotes Matt Moore of HLDI.

"Insurance industry groups have been keeping a close watch on claims when auto accidents across the country began to go up in 2013 after more than a decade of steady decline," AP reports.

"Insurance companies found several possible factors at play in the spike that included distracted driving through texting or cellphone use, road construction, and an improved economy that has led to leisurely drives and more miles driven, as well as marijuana legalization," AP states.

6 Georgia Inmates Receive Reduced Sentences for Saving Officer's Life

By Rick Pearcey • June 23, 2017, 02:35 PM

I wondered if something like this might happen for the Georgia inmates. Madeleine Weast reports at the Washington Free Beacon:

Six Georgia inmates have been granted reduced sentences for saving a sheriff's deputy who collapsed during a work detail.

The prisoners at Polk County jail got their sentences cut by 25 percent after saving an officer who passed out on June 12, CNN reported Thursday. The deputy suffers suffered from a chronic medical condition that became agitated by the heat outside.

The deputy was on detail supervising the inmates perform lawn maintenance at a cemetery when he collapsed.

According to Weast, the "six inmates sprang into action, instead of fleeing, after the officer began hyperventilating before passing out."

"When he started breathing, it was just real heavy and real fast," inmate Greg Williams is quoted as saying.

"One inmate used the deputy's phone to call 911 and another removed his bulletproof vest and gun belt so he could breathe easier," Weast reports.

"When that happened, in my opinion, it wasn't about who is in jail and who wasn't," Williams said, according to Weast. "It was about a man going down and we had to help him."

Here is Channel 10 news video (WTSP, Tampa Bay) of this event.

Meanwhile, more good news: The "Georgia Family" of the incapacitated officer "Prepares Lunch for 6 Inmates Who Saved Officer's Life," WSBTV reports from Atlanta.

Well said, and well done, Mr. Williams -- to you and your fellow inmates.

And thanks to all, and for all, for these uplifting demonstrations of hope and healing.

Multicultural Ramadan Terror Comes to Wisconsin and Michigan

By Rick Pearcey • June 22, 2017, 10:44 AM

Robert Spencer writes at Frongpagemag.com:

Ramadan is in full swing -- it doesn't end until Saturday evening -- and Britain has been a particular recipient of Islamic piety during the holy month, with major jihad attacks in Manchester and London. But now the United States has been included in the multicultural festivities, as jihadis have struck, albeit with limited results, in Wisconsin and Michigan.

A Taliban spokesman recently said: "Our fight is Jihad and an obligatory worship. And every obligatory act of worship has 70 times more reward in Ramadan." Not just the Taliban believe that. Another likely believer in those special Ramadan rewards is a Muslim in Milwaukee named Mohamad Hamdan.

"There's no journalism left," Paglia said, according to Breitbart.

Republicans Introduce New Gun-Carry Legislation in Wake of Alexandria Attack

By Rick Pearcey • June 20, 2017, 10:24 AM

Stephen Gutowski reports at the Washington Free Beacon:

Republican Congressman Thomas Massie (R., Ky.) introduced a bill on Thursday that would require Washington, D.C., to honor valid gun-carry permits from other states.

Rep. Massie said the D.C. Personal Protection Reciprocity Act was a direct reaction to last week's attack on Republican congressmen at a baseball field in Alexandria, Va., which left four injured.

"After the horrific shooting at the Republican Congressional Baseball practice, there will likely be calls for special privileges to protect politicians," Rep. Massie said in a statement. "Our reaction should instead be to protect the right of all citizens guaranteed in the Constitution: the right to self-defense. I do not want to extend a special privilege to politicians, because the right to keep and bear arms is not a privilege, it is a God-given right protected by our Constitution."

Affirming "Lactatia": The "LGBT Agenda Is an Active Threat" to Our Children

By Rick Pearcey • June 14, 2017, 09:08 AM

Evidence -- Matt Walsh writes:

The LGBT community has been celebrating an 8-year-old drag queen who goes by the name "Lactatia."

The child has been "performing" in sexually charged drag shows in Montreal since he was 7.

His "supportive" (read: abusive, insane, barbaric, Satanic) parents have encouraged his continued sexual exploitation.

His mom even does his makeup for him.

So, his mom is "affirming." All must be well. Except it's not.

Golasso! Soccer Star Refuses to Wear Rainbow Uniform Promoting LGBT

A Christian athlete with the U.S. national soccer team has listed "personal reasons" for bowing out of games where her team will be wearing gay "pride" rainbow jerseys in support of homosexuality.

U.S. Women's Soccer announced late last month that during June their teams will wear rainbow "Pride" jerseys, in honor of homosexuality "pride" month. During June, the team plays two international "friendlies."

Team member and outspoken Christian Jaelene Hinkle has pulled out of those matches "for personal reasons." U.S. Soccer did not replace Hinkle on their roster for the June games.

Democrats' Hoodwinking of Blacks

By Rick Pearcey • June 12, 2017, 10:07 AM

Walter E. Williams writes:

Ask any black person which political party has been black people's political ally. With near unanimity, blacks would answer the Democratic Party. Asked which political party has been hostile to blacks, they'd say the Republican Party with similar unanimity.

For better answers, check out Prager University's five-minute clip "The Inconvenient Truth About the Democratic Party," by Carol Swain, professor of political science at Vanderbilt University. . . .

Since its founding in the late 1820s, the Democratic Party has defended slavery, started the Civil War and opposed Reconstruction. The Democratic Party imposed segregation. Its members engaged in the lynchings of blacks and opposed the civil rights acts of the 1950s and '60s. During Reconstruction, hundreds of black men were elected to Southern state legislatures as Republicans, and 22 black Republicans served in the U.S. Congress by 1900. The Democratic Party did not elect a black man to Congress until 1935. . . .

Guns Don't Kill People -- Liberalism and Radical Islam Do

By Rick Pearcey • June 9, 2017, 12:42 PM

Trevor Thomas writes at American Thinker:

After the recent attack on Manchester by Islamic terrorists, British author and journalist Douglas Murray provided a simple two-word suggestion for what might help prevent future such violence in Great Britain: "less Islam."

To bolster his point, Murray pointed out that, "countries like Poland, Hungary and the Czech Republic have very little Islam and very little Islamic terror. By contrast, France has a great amount of Islam and a great amount of Islamic terror.” Of course, Islamic apologists "promptly went bananas" (Murray's words) . . . .

"My two best buddies were right in front of me, and they were both killed. I was holding a .45 pistol and carrying a bazooka with eight shells; it was so heavy that I just went right under the water. So I had to let everything go except the shells . . . ."

LGBT Heresy Infiltrates Orlando Northland Community Church

By Rick Pearcey • June 2, 2017, 09:09 AM

From a Liberty Counsel press statement:

Northland Community Church and Pastor Joel Hunter hosted the Orlando LGBT event, "Elevating the Dialogue on LGBTQ Inclusion and Understanding in the Church," on May 18, with the apparent purpose to "affirm" LGBTQ by distorting the Bible and changing church doctrine. (emphasis added)

Prior to attending the event, attendees were encouraged to complete a survey. The survey was created by The Reformation Project (TRP), a so-called "Bible-based, Christian grassroots organization" that works "to promote inclusion of LGBT people by reforming church teaching on sexual orientation and gender identity" with the goal for a global church that fully affirms LGBT people.

The survey was quickly removed from the internet after Liberty Counsel's previous press release was distributed. (emphasis added)

Donald Trump Will Exit Paris Climate Change Agreement

Charlie Spiering reports at Breitbart:

President Donald Trump has decided to withdraw from the Paris Climate Agreement, according to a report from Axios reporter Jonathan Swan citing two sources with knowledge of the decision.

The news was confirmed by several mainstream media outlets.

The decision wreaks havoc on former President Barack Obama's legacy as president, despite pleas from world leaders for the United States to show leadership on climate change and remain in the agreement.

"Trump's decision fulfills a key campaign promise to supporters of his run for president, widely supported by Republican members of congress who felt that the treaty unfairly jeopardized the American economy," Breitbart states.

I helped transfer the wounded into the aid station and turned around to see some Afghan police dragging their buddies' corpses around the corner of a wall.

They left them on the ground. The flies were grateful. 

Fast forward to the end of that deployment. A rocket killed one of my soldiers . . .

Donald Rumsfeld shut down Joy Behar on The View Thursday when she argued with him that Hillary Clinton actually won the election because she got more votes.

"What counts?" Rumsfeld responded.

"Well the electoral vote counts," Behar answered.

"I thought so," Rumsfeld said.

What this means, Ms. Behar, is that Hillary Clinton did not actually win the election.

Bozell Blasts "Especially Disappointing" USAA, Other Advertisers for Dropping Hannity

By Rick Pearcey • May 25, 2017, 05:30 PM

Craig Bannister writes at CNSNews.com:

Media Research Center President Brent Bozell issued a statement Friday condemning liberal calls for advertisers to boycott conservative commentator Sean Hannity.

The unwarranted boycott push is part of liberals' efforts to silence conservative views and re-establish a monopoloy of the information the American public can access.

Here at Newsbusters is the full statement from Bozell:

The attack on Sean Hannity is a part of the liberal strategy to re-establish their monopoly over television news. They want only one voice on the air: their own. All others must be silenced.

We now see elements of corporate America joining in the liberal cause and advancing the liberal strategy. These corporations are not serving the interests of their customers.

Sponsoring a free, meaningful dialogue based on mutual respect reflects what happens among consumers in everyday life. When corporations withdraw from that debate, it does not serve the interests of their country, it merely makes them servants of the politically correct.

It is especially disappointing that an upstanding company like USAA would so easily succumb to the pressure of left-wing extremists. For decades, Sean Hannity has been a fierce supporter of the military at every turn. And this is how you treat him?

We have remained silent for far too long. A bridge has been crossed. Stay tuned.

No doubt, members of USAA will not be pleased with the company's caving to politically correct extremism. You can contact USAA at 800-531-8722.

"Black Lives Matter" Movement to Be Awarded Peace Prize

By Rick Pearcey • May 24, 2017, 11:27 AM

Edmund Kozak reports at Lifezette:

The Black Lives Matter movement will receive the Sydney Peace Prize, an award given by the Sydney Peace Foundation --  part of the University of Sydney -- and be honored at an event in the city in November, the foundation announced this week.

Black Lives Matter was chosen for allegedly "building a powerful movement for racial equality, courageously reigniting a global conversation around state violence and racism. And for harnessing the potential of new platforms and power of people to inspire a bold movement for change at a time when peace is threatened by growing inequality and injustice," the foundation's website states.

"Defenders of law enforcement against the often-violent, racially charged and hateful rhetoric of the Black Lives Matter movement, which often openly advocates for violence against police, expressed disapproval," Lifezette states.

"Giving a peace prize to a group that foments violent demonstrations would be enough to give irony a bad name," observed Georgetown law professor William Otis, according to Lifezette.

Venezuela Civil War Closer as Mobs Burn Childhood Home of Socialist Hugo Chavez

By Rick Pearcey • May 23, 2017, 09:42 AM

Monica Showalter writes at American Thinker:

Following the toppling of at least five statues of the late Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez, angry mobs startled the ruling regime by burning down Chavez's childhood home, set up as a shrine to his socialist revolution by his supporters.

 It surely takes the anger and bitterness in the streets to another level. We no longer hear much in the way of restraining voices for non-violence in that socialist hellhole much. The mob has taken over and the monuments are beginning to topple.

 It's a sign of a growing civil war, in fact, and like most of such events it could be very bloody. In the midst of the largely non-violent Velvet Revolutions of Eastern Europe in 1989, the sorry end of the region's worst dictator, Nicolae Ceaucescu, was the exception -- dragged from his palace hideaway to some wall by angry rebel troops and summarily shot as crowds cheered.

"The other Nicholas, Nicolas Maduro, seems to be headed for the same fate, given the efforts to take down the relics of the illegitimate regime," Showalter writes.

Survey: Target's Customer Satisfaction Plunging

By Rick Pearcey • May 22, 2017, 10:06 AM

Warner Todd Huston reports at Breitbart:

A new survey finds that customer satisfaction has plunged as retail giant Target continues to struggle to recover from its now one-year-old financial slide.

Target has gone four full quarters slipping in a variety of metrics from profits, stock prices, and even perception of its brand name. But a new survey by investment bank Cowen has also found that customer satisfaction has also tumbled.

The survey of 2,500 Target customers shows declines across the board, including customer service, merchandise selection, and overall quality. According to the survey, Target's satisfaction level has fallen 383 points to 66.7 percent, MSN Money reported.

"As MSN ruefully noted, 'It appears unhappy Target shoppers could be taking their business elsewhere'," Breitbart reports.

Meanwhile, Target has been shuttering "high-priority projects" amid a continuing downturn in the corporation's financial well-being.

"The company’s stock price hit $64.77 at market close on Feb. 8," Breitbart states, which "was down from $83 when the boycott began
. . . when the company made its transgender policy on April 19 of last year."

According to Breitbart, Target closed "May 19 at just under $56 . . . a far cry from its high of $84.14 seen last year."

Lesson: People would rather shop at stores where, among other things, a) women and children are less likely to be endangered in bathrooms and dressing rooms, and b) where mainstream commerce and not extremist social policy is the order of the day.

2 AM: Violent Underwear-Clad Intruder Invades Texas Pastor's Home, Is Shot Dead -- Video

By Rick Pearcey • May 19, 2017, 07:59 AM

"A man was shot and killed in northwest Harris County after investigators say he broke into a home and attacked the family inside," KTRK TV reports from Cypress, Texas, a community in the northwest Houston metro area. "Detectives say the intruder was wearing nothing but his underwear," according to KTRK.

"The pastor's daughter says her whole life her family hasn't believed in owning a gun but she now feels strongly that if her brother-in-law did not have his gun, they may not all be here today," Courtney Fischer of KTRK reports on the video that accompanies the news story. 

Comment: Self-defense is an inalienable human right that expresses the primordial will-to-life integral to human beings created in the image of a verifiable, reality-oriented, and living Creator who affirms the individual human as a creature of great significance and worth. This is humane wisdom for life in a broken world where hell can break loose at 2 AM.

Roger Ailes Dead, 77

By Rick Pearcey • May 18, 2017, 09:45 AM

Foxnews.com reports:

Roger Ailes, who built Fox News into a cable powerhouse before leaving the company last year, died Thursday morning at the age of 77.

According to Fox, his wife Elizabeth Ailes released the following statement:

I am profoundly sad and heartbroken to report that my husband, Roger Ailes, passed away this morning. Roger was a loving husband to me, to his son Zachary, and a loyal friend to many. He was also a patriot, profoundly grateful to live in a country that gave him so much opportunity to work hard, to rise -- and to give back.

Yale Dean Loves Diversity. Except for "White Trash"

By Rick Pearcey • May 17, 2017, 02:08 PM

Joshua Rhett Miller reports at the NYPost:

A dean at Yale University who championed cultural sensitivity has apologized for her "insensitive" Yelp reviews of restaurants, gyms and movie theaters, including hot takes on what "white trash" customers would find tasty and employees she blasted as "barely educated morons."

June Chu, dean of Yale's Pierson College, apologized for the offending reviews, which had been circulating among students for several months, after the Yale Daily News published screenshots on Saturday.

"To put it quite simply: If you are white trash, this is the perfect night out for you!" Chu said in a review of a Japanese eatery, according to the Post.

“This establishment is definitely not authentic by any stretch of any imagination and perfect for those low class folks who believe this is a real night out. Over salted and greasy food. Side note: employees are Chinese, not Japanese," Chu wrote, the Post reports.

Comment: Modern day "diversity" is a weakness, not a strength.

It makes an idol out of differences and thereby creates an unresolvable tension among these very demanding gods as they vie for cultural supremacy. White vs. black vs. brown vs. red vs. yellow is the world these deities long to create and must create. 

Clearly, this "diversity" is division, not strength. Weakness, not strength. It is an ideology that breeds a hatred for differences, not the embrace of them.

It fosters people and groups with superiority complexes and chips on their shoulders. It puts "victims" in charge of guillotines.

Cultural hatreds and insensitivies are not anomalous outcomes of such "diversity" but rather its natural by-products. And by that fruit you can evaluate the merits of what poses as "diversity" on campus today.

Racism we will have with us as long this world remains broken and unhealed.

Chu's "white trash" comment suggests she may be a racist. But even if not, she will walk, talk, and quack like a racist if she drinks deep that campus Kool-Aid bottled and sold as "diversity."

This is true of her and millions like her on campuses across America today. It could make the racism of yesterday pale in comparison to the racism of tomorrow -- at Yale and around the world.

"Diversity" has a big problem: It makes everything OKKK.

"This Isn't Berkeley": SUNY New Paltz Student Paper Slams Antifa

By Rick Pearcey • May 15, 2017, 09:09 AM

Chris Pandolfo writes at CR:

As Antifa violence sweeps college campuses across the nation, there is hope in knowing some college students are rejecting the extreme tactics of the far-left.

In an op-ed from the editors of The New Paltz Oracle titled "This isn't Berkeley," the official student newspaper of SUNY New Paltz condemned the presence of Antifa, which it characterizes as "a far-left paramilitary group," on their campus.

"Antifa protesters have a nasty habit of turning their 'protests' into full blown riots -- destroying property, setting fires alight, and physically assaulting those they disagree with," Pandolfo writes.

"The editorial board of The New Paltz Oracle should be congratulated for defending free speech against political violence," Pandolfo concludes. "Hopefully other student groups across America will do the same."

"Elected in 2013, Maduro is resisting pressure for an early vote, calling the crisis a U.S.-backed conspiracy," AFP reports.

Racism Watch: Measles Outbreak in Minnesota Grows to 41 Cases

By Rick Pearcey • May 5, 2017, 11:43 AM

According to Michael Patrick Leahy at Breitbart:

The Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) reported on Thursday that the number of measles cases diagnosed in the state has jumped to 41, an increase of seven reported cases over the last 24 hours.

Thirty-eight cases have been reported in Hennepin County, two in Ramsey County and one in Crow Wing County

MDH says that "34 of the cases are Somali Minnesotan."

Who knew? Measles is racist.

And so is the MDH, for targeting and focusing on Somalis, the result of said targeting is to harm disproportionately women, children, and minorities in particular. And of course, illegal immigrants, none of whom are illegal.

May the gods, goddesses, and transgods of PC Heaven save us.

Speaking of which, try this powerful medicine: Self-identify as healed. Measles begone! Learned that at Berkeley.

By the way, there are $50 doctorates from the Cayman Islands if you're too busy fighting oppression to make time for all that rigorous study. Berkeley or the Caymans. No diff.  

OR: Drop the PC mythology and go to real doctors, especially ones not infected by measles or by political correctness. If you want to save the children. Then clean up Minnesota. Their heads may be frozen. Melt that racism.

Liars and Thieves "for God": Plagiarism in the Church

By Rick Pearcey • May 4, 2017, 08:48 AM

Joshua writes at CCD:

Taking advantage of the convenience from the Internet, some Christians, including a portion of pastors and preachers, plagiarize the information they want.

They copy and paste the content they discover and pass it off as their own.

Whick, of course, is lying. But we digress. Joshua continues:

Their articles are published in their WeChat official accounts and in various church magazines.

Even those plagiarized sermons are preached in the pulpit in the name of "a voice heard from the Holy Spirit," which gives the preachers praise from their congregations. . . .

Carlos of Venezuela Starts YouTube Series: "My Socialist Hell"

By Rick Pearcey • May 3, 2017, 09:47 AM

Brandon Morse reports at The Blaze:

A Venezuelan YouTuber known as Carlos Gaio released a video Monday that he says will turn into a series titled My Socialist Hell.

In the video, Gaio goes into detail about the conditions he is currently living in within the failing country of Venezuela. Currently, Venezuela is suffering from a shortage of almost everything, from food, to medicine, to something as simple as toilet paper.

"Gaio begins by saying that his government is not actually a government, it is more accurately a dictatorship," the Blaze continues. Gaio "says they are running the country as a socialist one, but as Gaio notes in the video, 'If you take a look at history, socialism never worked'," the Blaze reports.

According to the Blaze, "Gaio hopes that these videos will help him raise money in order to be able to escape the country, and move somewhere where he can have a 'normal life'."

Immigrant Workers Stunned to Be Fired After Skipping Work for Protest

By Rick Pearcey • May 2, 2017, 09:58 AM

Will Racke reports at the Daily Caller:

More than 20 immigrant workers in Michigan were stunned to find themselves out of a job after they skipped work to attend a "Day Without Immigrants" rally in February.

The former employees of Detroit-area auto parts maker EZ Industrial Solutions LLC say they were wrongfully fired, despite warnings from company management that there would be repercussions for missing work without permission.

"EZ Industrial Solutions says it acted within the law when it fired the workers," the Daily Caller states.

"Operations manager Jordan Yoder defended the company's actions in an e-mailed statement to the Free Press: 'The law is quite clear that employees can't just not show up to work when the're expected, and also that they are not free to participate in political, non-work related protests during their work day without consequences'."

MayDay, MayDay: Socialist-Run Venezuela Descends Into Chaos

By Rick Pearcey • May 1, 2017, 10:24 AM

David Paulin writes at Frontpage.com:

It wasn't supposed to turn out this way. Venezuela was going to be a workers' paradise. President Hugo Chávez said so and declared early into his first term, in 1999, that Venezuela and Cuba would sail toward the same "sea of happiness."

Not surprisingly, Venezuela is now a workers' hell. Authoritarian and dysfunctional, the oil-rich yet impoverished South American nation of 31 million people suffers dire food shortages; soaring levels of violent crime (28,479 deaths reported last year); and epic levels of corruption and drug trafficking.

Unemployment is soaring -- not surprising given that large swaths of the economy have been nationalized. Venezuela's court-ordered seizure of a General Motors plant is the latest such calamity.

"Now Venezuelans are venting their anger like never before . . ."

North Korea Video Puts White House, Capitol Hill in Crosshairs

By Rick Pearcey • April 27, 2017, 11:37 AM

Myles Burke reports at the U.K. Telegraph:

Pyongyang's latest propaganda video puts the White House and U.S. troops in the crosshairs and stimulates a crescendo of missile strikes if the U.S. "kicks off aggression."

The video which was [posted] on the North Korean website Meari (Echo) today and portrays the White House, U.S. aircraft carriers and troops through the crosshairs of a targeting device. ‚Äč

The video "culminates in a series of missile strikes and simulated footage of Washington exploding into flames. It also carries a stark warning: 'The moment when (the enemy) kicks off aggression and provocations'," the Telegraph reports.

The production values of this propaganda are amateurish and bespeak an insular, crazed, and closed-down mentality. You feel a bit sorry for people who have lived under this kind of fanatical governing mentality.

Nevetheless, the message should be taken seriously. In this broken world, wisdom instructs us that individuals and nations should be prepared to counter -- with great force, if necessary -- any threat, crazed or otherwise -- that might might burst through your front door or second-story window.

Extremist "White Genocide" Drexel Prof Under Investigation as Donors and Students Flee

By Rick Pearcey • April 26, 2017, 08:12 AM

Lukas Mikelionis reports at HeatStreet:

A radical professor who once wished for "White Genocide" for Christmas and wanted to "vomit" after seeing someone give up their first-class airline seat to a soldier, is currently under investigation by his embattled employer, Drexel University, citing negative coverage that led to fleeing students and donors.

George Ciccariello-Maher has repeatedly come under fire for his outspoken social media posts. Last year December, the professor has shocked the people after saying "All I Want for Christmas is White Genocide." More recently came his much-criticized comment about the uniformed soldier on the airline.

"Philadelphia-based Drexel had previously investigated the 'white genocide' tweets and ended up claiming that its professor's comments fell under the category of 'protected speech' and that he wouldn't lose his job," HeatStreet reports.

"But according to documents acquired by InsideHigherEd, Drexel Provost Brian Blake sent an email to Ciccariello in this month, advising him that the institution will conduct 'a special committee of inquiry to investigate your conduct and provide findings and recommendations to me concerning your extremely damaging conduct'," according to HeatStreet.

"The reason for Drexel's renewed interest in 'investigating' Ciccariello?" HeatStreet asks. "It appears that the professor's social media posts been driving away many potential students and donors, a lifeline of financial support for the privately-owned university."

Former Obama Official: Bureaucrats Manipulate Climate Stats to Influence Policy

By Rick Pearcey • April 25, 2017, 01:43 PM

Chris White reports at the Daily Caller:

A former member of the Obama administration claims Washington, D.C., often uses "misleading" news releases about climate data to influence public opinion.

Former Energy Department Undersecretary Steven Koonin told The Wall Street Journal Monday that bureaucrats within former President Barack Obama's administration spun scientific data to manipulate public opinion.

"What you saw coming out of the press releases about climate data, climate analysis, was, I'd say, misleading, sometimes just wrong," Koonin said, referring to elements within the Obama administration he said were responsible for manipulating climate data.

Hurricane frequencey is a case in point, according to Koonin. "He pointed to a National Climate Assessment in 2014 showing hurricane activity has increased from 1980 as an illustration of how federal agencies fudged climate data," White reports. "Koonin said the assessment was technically incorrect," according to White.

“What they forgot to tell you, and you don't know until you read all the way into the fine print, is that it actually decreased in the decades before that," the former Obama official said, according to the Daily Caller. 

Actually, according to Koonin, what at work here is not so much "forgetting" but, rather, achieving a desired result.

"Press officers work with scientists within agencies like the National Oceanic Administration (NOAA) and NASA and are responsible for crafting misleading press releases on climate, he added," according to the Daily Caller.

"Koonin is not the only one claiming wrongdoing," White continues. "House lawmakers with the Committee on Science, Space and Technology, for instance, recently jumpstarted an investigation into NOAA after a whistleblower said agency scientists rushed a landmark global warming study to influence policymakers," White reports.

"Koonin, who served under Obama from 2009 to 2011, went on to lament the politicization of science, suggested that the ethos should be to 'tell it like it is. You're a scientist and it is your responsibility to put the facts on the table'," the DC states.

Government-transmitted propaganda has consequences, of course. "NASA and NOAA's actions, [Koonin] said, are problematic, because 'public opinion is formed by the data that is formed from those organizations and appears in newspapers'," the DC reports.

The Daily Caller News Foundation requested comment from both NASA and NOAA, but "neither agency responded," according to the DC.

Climate Scientist Urges President Trump Not to Cave to Ivanka's "Climate Change Madness"

By Rick Pearcey • April 24, 2017, 12:05 PM

Thomas D. Williams writes at Breitbart:

In an open letter to Donald Trump, climate expert Dr. Duane Thresher has urged the President not to give in to his daughter Ivanka's misguided views on global warming and her insistence that the U.S. remain in the Paris climate agreement ratified by Barack Obama last August.

"Climate treaties like the Paris Agreement have little to do with climate," Thresher notes in his letter, which he made available to Breitbart News. "They are about economic competition. As the greatest economy in the history of the world, other countries will do anything to cripple the United States."

Attention Social Justice Warriors: Please Stop Writing! It's Cultural Appropriation!

By Rick Pearcey • April 20, 2017, 11:20 AM

David Hogberg writes at American Spectator:

Last week model Shanina Shaik was accused of cultural appropriation when she braided her hair for the annual music and arts festival in Coachella, California.

I didn't realize how serious this was until I read Jessica Andrews's piece at Teen Vogue where she claims the Coachella festival "is mired in cultural appropriation" because of the white people there who dress up in "[b]indis, feathered headpieces, dashikis, [and] war paint."

Upon further research, I discovered writer Adrienne Keene who suggests that dressing in Native American gear is cultural appropriation unless you buy it from a Native American.

And, to my horror, I learned that white male chefs making money by cooking ethnic food is also a form of cultural appropriation, according to Michael W. Twitty.

"Well, these writers have enlightened me," Hogberg admits. "I'm now very concerned about this injustice. So concerned, in fact, that I implore Jessica Andrews, Adrienne Keene, and Michael W. Twitty to stop writing. After all, writing is also cultural appropriation."

NBC Sportswriter Questions Display of American Flag at Baseball Games

By Rick Pearcey • April 18, 2017, 11:51 AM

"Will you keep politics out of sports, please. We like sports to be politics-free," tweeted incredibly self-unaware sports writer Craig Calcaterra of NBC.

Or is it that he's incredibly aware only of himself? My views, my feelings, my "truth."

That sinkhole egoism may not be in your best interests, Mr. Sportswriter. A kind of myopic fanaticism. Jim Jones land. Kool-Aid, yes; American flags, not so much.

Or perhaps TV man seethes with animus against the defining, enduring, and liberating mainstream meaning of the American ethos. Upon which ground, the magnificence of sport in America has been able to flourish.

You do realize that the U.S. ethos is rather remarkable for encouraging people to recognize, unpack, and develop their publicly actionable God-given talents and abilities?

But despise that liberating and humane ethos, and politics may be the least of your problems.

Check out how well sport is doing in Venezuela these days. I hear they're eating baseballs for breakfast.

Wrong kind of tweet in that socialist utopian clubhouse and you could be out. Really out. Out of a job and out of a life.

On the bright side: No more "politics."

Pearceys Meet With NFL Chaplains, Wives

By Rick Pearcey • April 13, 2017, 04:32 PM

Nancy and I enjoyed a tremendous "Seminar-Workshop" afternoon yesterday from approximately 1:30-4:20 pm with several NFL chaplains and their wives at the Hyatt Place near the Galleria in Houston. 

Nancy presented some material on powerpoint, and both of us discussed a "test everything" Christian worldview and its holistic, real-world applications with this sharp group on staff with Athletes in Action.

Among the teams represented by chaplains were the Houston Texans, Cincinnati Bengals, Cleveland Browns, New York Jets, and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. One of the chaplains says he may be transitioning to work more in baseball, with the New York Yankees.

The individuals in this group are so intriguing and motivated, and our discussion so lively, that Nancy and I didn't actually get around to meeting everyone and noting all the teams represented. That just means we have more work to do the second half.

Sofia Petkar and Lizzie Stromme report at the UK Express:

The vehicle drove into crowds on Drottninggatan (Queen Street) -- one of the city's major pedestrian streets, just before 3 pm local time, before crashing into Åhlens Mall.

A number of people have been injured, with unconfirmed reports of at least three people killed.

Stockholm police confirmed they are dealing with the incident -- which is being treated as a suspected terror attack according to local media.

Armed police remain on the scene, and the area has been cordoned off.

"Reports have also emerged of a secondary incident -- a shooting -- in a separate area of the city," according to Express.

England Falling: Charity Under Fire for Removing Word "Easter" From Upcoming Event

By Rick Pearcey • April 5, 2017, 11:04 AM

Sara Gonzales reports at the Blaze:

The Church of England is sparring with a charity organization in the United Kingdom that removed the word "Easter" from its annual Easter egg hunt.

National Trust, a nature and environmental conservation charity, has held the popular annual event for a decade, and each year it has been branded as the Easter Egg Trail. But this year, the charity decided on a different name with one obvious key word missing.

The event's new name? The Great British Egg Hunt.

According to the Blaze, "Cadbury, the chocolate candy company that sponsors the yearly event, explained that they wanted to appeal to non-Christians."

“We invite people from all faiths and none to enjoy our seasonal treats," the company is quoted as saying, according to the UK Telegraph.

"The Church of England denounced the decision," however, "saying it was an attempt to airbrush faith from the Christian holiday," the Blaze reports.

"This marketing campaign . . . highlights the folly in airbrushing faith from Easter," a church spokesman said, according to the Blaze.

The Archbishop of York, Dr. John Sentamu, "sharply criticized the decision, pointing out that John Cadbury, the company’s original founder, was a Christian and that the act was disrespectful to his name," the Blaze reports.

“The Cadburys were Great Quaker industrialists. If people visited Birmingham today in the Cadbury World, they will discover how Cadbury’s Christian faith influenced his industrial output,” Sentamu said, according to the Blaze.

John Cadbury "built houses for all his workers, he built a Church, he made provision for schools. It is obvious that for him Jesus and justice were two sides of the one coin," the Archbishop said. "To drop Easter from Cadbury’s Easter Egg Hunt in my book is tantamount to spitting on the grave of Cadbury."

CNN Hires "Reporter" Caught Falsely Accusing Trump of Making Racist Comment

By Rick Pearcey • April 3, 2017, 02:30 PM

"CNN has hired reporter April Ryan, who has repeatedly clashed with White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer in recent days, as a political analyst," Andrew Kugle reports at the Free Beacon.

According to the Free Beacon:

Back in February, Ryan accused President Trump of making a racially-charged comment that he never said.

"When he was Candidate Trump, he said things like, you know, ‘We made this country,' meaning white America, not necessarily black," Ryan said during a White House press briefing.

"I don't know why you would say that. What do you mean?" Spicer asked.

"No, no, no. He said that. I heard him say that," Ryan said.

"Ryan could not provide evidence that Trump made the statement when asked to do so," the Beacon reports. (emphasis added) "Nonetheless, she persisted that Trump said the remark and told people to look it up themselves."

What she should have done is to present her evidence then and there for all to see -- or else withhold from attacking. Clearly, this episode does not speak well of April Ryan, no matter if she's hired by a hundred CNNs.

Meanwhile, let's think a moment about racism. As a general principle applicable to all of us, I would suggest that anyone who is determined to view all things, and to assess all things, and to "report" on all things through the lens of skin color and race is by defnition a racist.

And what a sad, tiny, misdirected, and dehumanizing existence that would be.

And how much better is it to be a liberated human being who can think and live beyond the thinness of skin. Who can enjoy the diversity of life without elevating it into an idol that falsely condemns and truly destroys.

Racist reporting and thinking are skin deep -- a way of non-being and alienation far too shallow for the depth and wonder of what it means to be a human being. No one should have to live that way -- much less embrace it.

There is no doubt in my mind that April Ryan and her new colleagues at CNN are better than this. Far better.

Unfortunately, and I yearn that this were not the case, it may take them a lifetime to escape the seductive chains of power through pigmentation -- a god that loves hate. A shortcut that never gets you home.

Right now, however, with this new hire, CNN reinforces its reputation as a propagandistic echo chamber. A bully pretending to serve. Free minds go elsewhere for food and drink.

Iran Morality Police Tell Women to Wear Islamic Veil in Christian Church

By Rick Pearcey • March 31, 2017, 03:06 PM

Kieran Corcoran reports at Heat Street:

Members of Iran's morality police are pressuring women into wearing the veil inside Christian places of worship.

Female officers were pictured outside the medieval Holy Savior Cathedral in Isfahan, enforcing the Islamic theocracy's repressive "modesty laws."

Visitors reported being lectured on whether or not their hijab was "appropriate" as they entered the Christian sanctuary, part of the Armenian Orthodox Church.

 

"The rules can be enforced viciously, and Heat Street has reported violent arrrests and punishment beatings meted out to those who disobey," according to Corcoran.

By the way, "Western feminists tend not to comment on issues surrounding the oppression of women in Muslim nations," Heat Street reports.

How might we explain this feminist silence? Consider: Insofar as western feminists view Christianity as a hated, mortal enemy, they find much common cause with Islam, which also despises and rejects historic Christianity.

These feminists seem not to realize that if Islam rules in the West, LGBTQ & Co. will be thrown from the rooftops. Fed to wolves. Perhaps literally.

Or look at it this way: Islam will abort feminism violently and with great prejudice. With video at 11 on state TV. Raise a little consciousness and then splat.

Breitbart News Denied Permanent Capitol Hill Press Credentials

By Rick Pearcey • March 27, 2017, 02:17 PM

Mark Moore reports at the NYPost:

Breitbart News' request for Capitol Hill press credentials was denied until "more answers" can be provided on whether top White House adviser Steve Bannon has severed ties with the conservative website, according to a report on Monday.

The Standing Committee of the Senate Press Gallery put the request on hold, citing the need for "more answers," The Daily Beast reported.

"Larry Solov, president and CEO of Breitbart, sent a letter seeking permanent press credentials that confirmed that Bannon resigned from the news site in November 2016," the Post reports. "Solov went on to write that Bannon, who helped run the Trump presidential campaign, 'has no editorial, executive, financial or other role or interest' in Breitbart."

Bumps in the road remain for Breitbart. A Standing Committee "member said other than 'us trusting Larry' there was no proof Bannon had cut all ties, the Daily Beast reported," according to the Post.

In addition, members of the board want to "clarify any role conservative donor and President Trump supporter Rebekah Mercer reportedly has in making editorial decisions," the Post reports.

"Mercer's father, hedge-fund billionaire Robert Mercer, invested $10 million in Breitbart, according to The New Yorker," the Post states.

The committee is set to "meet again to consider credentials on April 25," according to the Post. Until then, "reporters for Breitbart will receive temporary passes."

Tom Price Confirms What We Knew: Republicans Never Intended to Repeal Obamacare

By Rick Pearcey • March 23, 2017, 08:43 AM

Daniel Horowitz writes at CR:

The simple truth of this entire health care debate is that the insurance regulations are the heart and soul of Obamacare. Without repeal of those elements, prices will never come down, the market will never be restored, and there will always be a need for massive subsidization at crushing prices until we get single payer.

It is also the simple truth that Republicans never had any intention of repealing those elements because they never wanted to repeal them.

Secretary of HHS, Tom Price, confirmed this reality on Sunday. As such, everything else is just a distraction.

Obama Tried to Legalize Migrant Accused of Murdering 15-Year-Old Stepdaughter

By Rick Pearcey • March 22, 2017, 10:08 AM

Stephen Dinan reports at the WTimes:

The Obama administration last year began the process of granting legal status to a 36-year-old illegal immigrant with a long criminal rap sheet whom agents had twice tried to deport, and who now stands accused of killing his 15-year-old girlfriend, mother of one child with him and pregnant with another.

The Texas case, involving Armando Garcia-Ramirez, a Mexican, is raising new questions about immigration enforcement under President Obama, as supporters of President Trump point to the matter as proof of a broken immigration system.

"Mr. Garcia may even have been the girl's stepfather at the time he impregnated her," the Times contiunes, "something federal authorities apparently missed last year after he was arrested for smuggling five other illegal immigrants into the U.S."

We Seek Interview With River

By Rick Pearcey • March 20, 2017, 10:22 AM

"Millions of people around the world are still lacking human rights, but a river in New Zealand isn't," the Blaze reports. "A recent parliamentary vote grants the Whanganui River the same legal standing as a human being, ensuring it will be represented by two guardians in any legal matters over the water way."

The Pearcey Report has reached out to the government of New Zealand to obtain contact information to possibly "interview the river for further comment on this landmark event." We will alert you with regard to any updates from the NZ government or comments from the river.

Babbling Bethel: Sorry Christians, But Your Bible Fails "Inclusive Language" Standards at "Evangelical" College

By Rick Pearcey • March 17, 2017, 01:29 PM

Eric Owens reports at the Daily Caller:

An evangelical Christian university in Minnesota is encouraging its professors to stop using words with masculine connotations -- such as "man" and "mankind" -- because those words aren't sufficiently "inclusive."

That institution would be Bethel University in St. Paul (who was a male, by the way). There's much more to the story, and you can read the entire news report here.

Meanwhile, a little application: If you want to learn how the God who created human language in the first place just couldn't get his Scripture pronouns right -- and to pay $46,550 annually for tuition, fees, room and meals for that amazing spiritual enlightenment and advance in "our Christian witness" -- then Bethel University could be just the comfy Nirvana you're looking for.

Meanwhile, Part 2: Secularists of the world -- Relax. With Christians and universities like this -- no worries. Just nudge them along nice and easy. Show them a little hate, then a little love. They can't wait to fall into line. They're begging for your discipleship program.

Bow Wow Dogg Mess: Responds to Trump Tweet About Snoop Dogg by Threatening to "Pimp" First Lady Melania Trump

By Rick Pearcey • March 16, 2017, 09:53 AM

Here speaks a truly classless voice of hate:

"Ayo @realDonaldTrump shut your punk ass up talking shit about my uncle @SnoopDogg before we pimp your wife and make her work for us."

Bow Wow might want to drop that stage name. Your dog whistle insults canine pride.

When you dehumanize others, you mock yourself, you hollow yourself.

Or are you there already?

You look in the mirror and there's noth'n' lookin' back.

You pimp yourself, and there's nothing looking back.

Socialist Venezuela Owns Hundreds of Companies and Most are Going Under

By Rick Pearcey • March 15, 2017, 09:23 AM

Brandon Morse reports at The Blaze:

More bad news for those who believe socialism is the way to go, as more information has surfaced about Venezuela's ever crumbling finances and infrastructure.

According to information recently garnered by the nonprofit Transparency International [TI], Venezuela's government owns, or has a majority ownership in 511 businesses within the country. Sadly for Venezuela, 70 percent of these companies are bleeding money, and potentially contributing to Venezuela's continued financial downfall.

"We started this study because nobody really knows how many companies the state is running," said Mercedes De Freitas of TI, according to the Blaze. "The state has invaded every sector imaginable."

"The amount of money lost by the companies isn't something to scoff at either, with 2016 seeing a total of $129 billion gone from the failing businesses," the Blaze reports.

"Venezuela's ownership expands out to things such as toilet paper, medicine, cellphones, milk, which [are] also the things Venezuela is tragically lacking," the Blaze continues.

"Venezuela's citizens have been relegated to literal and figurative bread lines in order to get the food and supplies they need for everyday living," the Blaze concludes. "Women have even been sterilizing themselves to avoid bringing another mouth to feed into the world," and many Venezuelans "have lost dangerous amounts of weight due to starvation."

Students Denounced as Racist for Wearing U.S. Flag Colors

By Rick Pearcey • March 13, 2017, 10:10 AM

Rob Shimshock reports at the Daily Caller:

Students from one Iowan high school recently apologized to the principal of another Iowan high school when people found their choice of red, white and blue attire offensive.

Supporters of the Des Moines North High School basketball team, many of whose players are from refugee families, were offended when fans of Valley High School's basketball team wore red, white and blue last week,  the College Fix reports.

"This is an example of BLATANT racism," said Ty Leggett, a Valley High School alum, on the Valley High School -- WDMCS Facebook page. "ALL participating should have been pulled and banned from ALL VHS extracurricular events for the remainder of the year! As a parent, I'd be mortified that my son or daughter thought this way, acted in this fashion and refrained from taking a stand against this 21st century inexcusable behavior!"

You can read the rest of what, apparently, is not a fake news story here.

Let's be clear: Any American-occupying high school student, teacher, principal, parent, coach or staff member who thinks the mere wearing U.S. flag colors is offensive or racist is offically now flunked out of the United States. There's a bonus: If you can't figure out why you've flunked out, expect to pay $1776.00 in reparations on your way out of the country.

In addition, any person inside the borders of the United States who apologizes or in any other manner cowers in the face of such drop-dead stupidity is also now officially flunked out of the United States of America. And if you too cannot figure out why you've flunked out, expect also to pay $1776.00 in reparations on your way out of the country.

Thank you. And have a good day.

Levin: "Something Horribly Immoral" About Paul Ryan's RINOcare

By Rick Pearcey • March 10, 2017, 08:11 AM

Chris Pandolfo writes at CR:

Thursday on the radio, Conservative Review Editor-in-Chief Mark Levin gave the rundown on the press conference of Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wisc. (F, 51%), in which Ryan tried to give the hard sell to Americans on the Republican American Health Care Act "reform" plan.

Levin called Ryan’s proposal "repeal in name only." Or, if you will, "RINOcare," because the GOP plan keeps the core of Obamacare in place. 

According to Pandolfo, "Levin had a 'number of questions' for the speaker, questions that so far remain unanswered."

Questions such as:

"How much will the average American's deduction go up, or down?"

Further, Levin asked, how much will the federal government be spending on subsidies for certain individuals? Will individuals be able to see the doctors they want? The specialists they need? Will individuals be able to go to the hospital of their choice? Will they be able to get the medicines they need to get?

The deeper "problem with RINOcare, Levin explained, is it embraces the Left's assumption that government involvement is needed to make health insurance affordable. It embraces progressivism; it embraces centralization."

The mainstream American initiative -- as the Declaration and U.S. Constitution make clear -- is that a free and dignified people are competent to run their own lives, including making decisions about healthcare choices, in liberating community with God and our fellow man -- male and female, red and yellow, black and white.

This initiative is central to the affirmation that "all men are created equal" and "are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights" -- an affirmation that the Constitution was written and ratified to incarnate into the American body politic.

And centralized healthcare regulated, defined, and controlled by that Swamp called Washington, D.C., and the federal government -- well, that stands in total antithesis to the genius of the enduring human and American spirit.

Trump and Co. should be seeking healthcare policy consistent with these transcendent principles of freedom. For whereas "unalienable rights" liberate, Obamacare or any other kind of "care" from any form of government that violates unalienable rights necessarily diminishes the human spirit.

No amount of money, no magical words of rhetoric or sincere intentions, and no concentration of political power can fix such a foundational error in thought, practice, and policy.

"Republicans have blown it," Levin says. "There is something horribly immoral" about RINOcare.

Sen. Tom Cotton to House Republicans: "Start Over" on Health Care

By Rick Pearcey • March 9, 2017, 11:15 AM

Matthew Boyle reports at Breitbart:

Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) is calling on House Republicans to withdraw the Obamacare 2.0 bill, the American Health Care Act, that House Speaker Paul Ryan put forward and "start over."

The strong words from Cotton -- including the comparison of the process that Ryan has been pushing to the efforts now House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi used to push Obamacare through back when she was Speaker -- come as Ryan has lost considerable support inside the Republican Party when it comes to this legislation.

"Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) has been leading an effort along with Sens. Mike Lee (R-UT) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) and the House Freedom Caucus to get Republicans to rethink how they handle this rather rushing through what amounts to Obamacare 2.0," Boyle continues.

"The bill from Ryan keeps the individual mandate but tweaks it so the government no longer collects a tax from those who do not purchase health insurance but insurance companies -- with government backing for enforcement -- collect a fee from those who do not purchase health insurance," Boyle writes.

Jamie Lewis writes at American Thinker:

CNN just published the results of an outright espionage operation against the Trump White House, by pointing a vibration-sensitive camera at the window of the Oval Office. 

This is an espionage technique, and it is obviously a major violation of national security laws

CNN is gambling that any arrested "journalists" (spies) can be turned into martyrs against the Trump White House.

Environmentalists Stand by Arrested Anti-Pipeline Leader Exposed as Rapist

By Rick Pearcey • March 6, 2017, 09:17 AM

Brent Scher reports at Free Beacon:

Environmentalists in Texas are standing by their leader even after it was revealed he had been imprisoned for various charges, including rape . . . and has been on the run from authorities for over a decade.

Protesters were shocked this week when Pedro Rabago Gutierrez, who went by Pete Hefflin while leading protests at the site of the Trans-Pecos Pipeline in West Texas, was arrested and had his criminal history and true identity exposed.

"Provocative" NRA Video: Why Women Own Guns

By Rick Pearcey • March 3, 2017, 01:55 PM

Susannah Breslin writes at Forbes:

For women, is owning a gun a feminist act?

The NRA says: You bet.

A provocative new video from the National Rifle Association, the country's hard-charging advocate for gun rights, argues that women who buy firearms are engaged in an act of self-empowerment.

The video, "Why Women Own Guns," is the latest episode of NRATV's newly launched firearms-focused The DL program, hosted by Dana Loesch, a Democrat turned conservative commentator and author of Hands Off My Gun: Defeating the Plot to Disarm America.

"The Left loves to talk about empowering women, but the real litmus test for that is your support for the Second Amendment," Loesch says in opening Why Women Own Guns. "Because if you don't support a women's right to choose to defend herself against a rapist with a firearm, you don't support women. Period."

I recommend this video to my family and yours.

Watch Why Women Own Guns.

Target Corp Hits $15 Billion Loss Since "Dangerous and Misguided" Pro-Transgender Announcement

By Rick Pearcey • March 2, 2017, 01:25 PM

Warner Todd Huston reports at Breitbart:

The stock value of transgender-champion Target Corp. crashed by 13.5 percent this week after the company's sales again fell below investors'expectations.

Target's stock value is now down by 30 percent since it sparked a consumer boycott by embracing the transgender political agenda. That 30 percent drop has slashed investors' wealth by roughly $15 billion. [emhasis added]

On Tuesday, the stock fell to $58.78, down from its April 19 high of $83.98. In contrast, WalMart is up 3 percent since April, and Kohl’s is down less than one percent.

"Company officials indirectly acknowledged the consumer boycott," Huston reports. "Our fourth-quarter results reflect the impact of rapidly changing consumer behavior, which drove very strong digital growth but unexpected softness in our stores," Breitbart quotes Target CEO Brian Cornell as saying in an official statement.

"Leaders at the American Family Association highlighted the company's worsening situation," Huston writes.

"The American Family Association has called for a boycott of Target since last April after the chain publicized the fact that it would allow men to use the women's restrooms and fitting rooms in their stores," AFA President Tim Wildmon stated, according to Breitbart.

"This [policy] is unacceptable for families, and the dangerous and misguided policy continues to put women and children in harm's way. [emphasis added] Men don't belong in the same bathroom as our wives and daughters," Wildmon also stated, Breitbart reports.

Rasmussen: Most Say Democrats Hurt Themselves With Anti-Trump Strategy

By Rick Pearcey • March 1, 2017, 10:47 AM

Rasmussen reports:

Most voters agree that it's bad for America and bad for the Democratic Party if Democrats continue to flat out oppose everything President Trump does. Even Democrats are conflicted about their party's scorched earth policy.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that only 29% of all Likely U.S. Voters think it's better for the country if Democrats oppose the president in every way possible.

Sixty-three percent (63%) say it's better for the country if Democrats try to work with the president instead.

"Forty-four percent (44%) of Democrats feel it's better for both the country and their party if they oppose the new president as much as possible," Rasmussen states. "But 46% say it's better for America if Democrats try to work with Trump, and 45% say it's better for their party, too."

Tucker vs. Bill Nye the Fanatic Guy -- Global Warming, Video

By Rick Pearcey • February 28, 2017, 11:27 AM

Watch this Tucker Carlson Tonight interchange on global warming, between Bill Nye and Tucker Carlson, and note who is asking questions and who appears dogmatic, fanatical in demeanor, and tries to bully his way to impose his opinion.

I would suggest: If the "science" behind global warming is so "settled," a media veteran such as Mr. Nye should have little difficulty relaxing and using this broadcast occasion to educate a national audience.

He would help his case immensely if he simply stated a proposition and offered scientific evidence to support it. That he did not do. Instead of that he seemed offended and knocked off-balance because Carlson dared to question.

Nye huffed and puffed and did not recover. He lost his cool and seemed anything but a clear-minded scientist in the honest pursuit of verifiable information. 

Far better, Mr. Nye, to smile and make your case. We're more than able to evaluate it. Take your theory out of the dogmatic bubble of "settled science" and let's see how it fares.

My hope is that scientists of our day, some of whom seem to be rather more politicized than scientific, will re-embrace what is both the scientific and Biblical calling to be critical thinkers who insist on data, evaluate evidence, think for themselves, reject bullying and peer pressure, and prefer reasoned trust over blind faith.

Leaked Audio Exposes Anti-Trump Forces Manufacturing Hostile Town Hall

By Rick Pearcey • February 27, 2017, 11:25 AM

Peter Hasson reports at The Daily Caller:

Leaked audio from an anti-Trump protest group meeting reveals activists with anti-Trump group Indivisible plotting how to best manufacture a hostile environment at a town hall with Republican Sen. Bill Cassidy in Breaux Bridge, Louisiana, on Friday.

The audio, obtained by local radio station KPEL, reveals a coordinated effort to create the public impression that Cassidy's support for Trump is unpopular with his constituents. The activists, who describe themselves as liberals in the audio, can be heard strategizing how to best turn a local town hall into a political victory.

Inside Team/Outside Team: "The activists split up into an 'inside team' -- tasked with occupying 'as many seats as we can' and an 'outside team,' whose job was to 'give [the media] the coverage they want' before joining the others inside.

"Dress Like Conservatives": "Activists were instructed to dress like conservatives and leave at home 'any signifier that you're a liberal' in order to blend in with constituents."

"Dominate": "The leftist activists strategized how best to 'dominate' the question-and-answer section of the town hall and keep anyone 'sympathetic' to Cassidy from asking a question."

Liberals Laughing at People of Breaux Bridge: "The audio also reveals the activists laughing about 'the poor people of Breaux Bridge' -- local constituents -- who might get stuck behind them. Local news coverage of the town hall said that 'many attendees were turned away' from the town hall due to 'capacity restrictions'."

Those "Poor People of Breaux Bridge": "If it's all of us in there and the poor people of Breaux Bridge are sitting behind us, well then tough luck for them,' said one organizer, identified by KPEL as James Proctor. His 'poor people' comment drew laughs from the other activists."

"Indivisible recently partnered up with Organizing for Action, the activist group aligned with former President Obama, NBC News reported earlier this month," The DC reports.

Non-Organic: Democrat Operatives Revealed Behind Mexico City Demonstration Against Tillerson

By Rick Pearcey • February 23, 2017, 01:27 PM

Peter Hasson reports at The Daily Caller:

An official arm of the Democratic party is behind a planned demonstration against Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on Thursday outside the U.S. Embassy in Mexico City.

The Mexico chapter of Democrats Abroad -- "the official Democratic Party arm for the millions of Americans living outside the United States," according to the group's website -- is organizing the demonstration against Tillerson, who arrived in the Mexican capital on Wednesday.

Advertising for the demonstration on The Action Network, a website for left-wing activists, says that "Democrats Abroad Mexico and other progressive organizations like the Women's March and Bridges to Understanding have created a petition" that demands Tillerson "meet with U.S. citizens who hold opposing views while he visits Mexico City to talk with Mexican government officials."

"A man named Doug Hall is the listed creator of both the event and the MoveOn.org petition," Hasson writes. "Hall has been identified in Mexican news sources as an employee of Democrats Abroad Mexico. He did not return an email seeking comment."

According to the Daily Caller, "The head of Democrats Abroad Mexico is Jody Quinnell, who served as a delegate for Hillary Clinton at the Democratic National Convention."

Finally, Hasson reports, "Indivisible, the anti-Trump group that has helped organize protests of Republican town halls across the country, promoted Thursday’s demonstration on its website. NBC News reported earlier this month that Indivisible has 'teamed up' with former Obama group Organizing for Action in organizing anti-Trump efforts."

Sweden Fail, Again: "Stockholm Suburb 'Looking Like a Warzone'"

By Rick Pearcey • February 21, 2017, 11:48 AM

Virginia Hale reports at Breitbart:

Riots broke out on Monday night in the suburb of Rinkeby, where a majority of residents were born overseas, just hours after the country's Prime Minister attacked U.S President Donald J. Trump for linking mass migration with rising violence in Sweden.

The riots, in which cars were set ablaze and shops were looted, resulted in the Stockholm suburb looking "like a warzone" according to a journalist who was at the scene.

Police retreated to a nearby gas station after being forced to fire a warning shot as a group of around 30 thugs pelted officers with stones, according to Expressen. . .

So, of course (some would have us think), nothing to see here -- just a little rioting and burning and police retreating in this otherwise Scandinavian Eden.

After ACU Chairman Matt Schlapp announced last week that alt-right provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos would be speaking at this year's CPAC, controversy immediately erupted --  a controversy that was exacerbated when multiple videos surfaced of Yiannopoulos arguing for the legalization of sexual relations between teenage boys and adult men, as well as making anti-Semitic comments about Jews in the media.

Homofascism: Washington Supreme Court Activists Punish Barronelle Stutzman

By Rick Pearcey • February 17, 2017, 01:55 PM

Jim Campbell writes at Alliance Defending Freedom:

After much anticipation, the Washington Supreme Court has punished Barronelle Stutzman for peacefully operating her business consistently with her faith.

The court's decision affirms a lower-court ruling that requires Barronelle to pay the attorneys’ fees that the ACLU racked up in suing her.

Often, in cases like this, the attorneys' fees for each side are hundreds of thousands of dollars, if not more.

What we are witnessing here is not justice (it's not even close), but fascism -- in particular, homofascism.

Fascism is a radical relativistic fact-denying will-to-power that rejects transcendent, humane, and ethical norms and instead seeks substitutes for these norms within the closed-down political state. It is the idolatry of secularized state political power, and because it lacks a high view of the human being (as merely matter or merely a creature of the state, for example), it always, by inner necessity, results in horrible inhumanity.

No amount of (whether paid or heartfelt) marching, protesting, or rioting in the name of liberation can make up for the fundamental and irredeemable fascist poverty with respect to the worth, dignity, and significance of the human being. In a fascist system, the human intrinsically is a zero and is therefore treated that way. Fascism is principially inhumane.

Homofascism seeks to absolutize and impose a diversity-denying monosexuality that wars irrationally against the facts of life (the biology of male and female), that wars principially against the American mainstream (rooted in liberating transcendent norms -- see the Declaration of Independence), and wars violently against the human being as human being. After all, the human is created to be free of state totalitarianism and instead to choose loving and liberating community with a knowable and factually verifable Creator and with our neighbor, who is of great worth and dignity, by virtue of his or her level of being, having been created in the image of God.

Homofascist faith forges chains. It co-opts the instrumentality of government as a force for good and transforms it into a force for gross inhumanity and evil. In the name of whatever empty trigger words happen to be culturally resonant in the present moment ("diversity," "love," "equality," "choice," "tolerance"), it unleashes hatred and venom upon those who stand for enduring freedom and intrinsic humanness.

By this mechanism of manipulation and hate, the strong prey upon the widow and the orphan, upon the "scum of the earth," and upon those who insist on asking questions, thinking for themselves, and glorying in the wonder and diversity of male and female.

Intelligence and humanity revolt. And if America would be America, she and we must overcome.

For more on the return of fascism, please go here.

To support Baronelle Stutzman and her legal team as they take her case to the U.S. Supreme Court, please go here.

Defiant Texas Pastors Blast Extremist NFL's Unsafe Transgender Threat

By Rick Pearcey • February 16, 2017, 11:14 AM

Bob Unruh reports at WND:

Texas pastors -- who stopped a lesbian mayor's social agenda in Houston by taking it to voters -- are responding to not-so-veiled threats from the National Football League that the Lone Star State must promote transgenderism through an open-bathrooms policy.

It's a policy in which men who "identify as women" are allowed to use restrooms, locker rooms and other facilities designated for women.

The issue arose under President Barack Obama, who pushed the agenda even to the point of mandating it in public schools before the order was put on hold by the federal courts.

"CBS News reported recently the NFL 'sharpened' its warning to Texas, where lawmakers are considering a simple bill that would require people use restrooms corresponding with their physical sex," Unruh explains.

"If a proposal that is discriminatory or inconsistent with our values were to become law there, that would certainly be a factor considered when thinking about awarding future events," NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy boomed, according to WND.

But the "pastors of the Texas Pastor Council, however, were in no mood to succumb to an outside group they said was trying to put women and children in danger," Unruh writes. "The group said Texans 'love football, but we love our God, our freedom and our families more'."

Moreover, "If we are forced to choose, then we will say to the NFL and other sports organizations or lobby groups: 'Don't let the ticket gate hit you on the way out of Texas'," the council said, according to WND.

"Yellow penalty flags are flying all across Texas with pastors ruling a personal foul against NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and spokesman Brian McCarthy for threatening the safety of our women and children in Texas," the diverse coalition of pastors also reportedly said.

According to McCarthy, the NFL "embraces inclusiveness."

"We want all fans to feel welcomed at our events, and NFL policies prohibit discrimination based on age, gender, race, religion, sexual orientation or any other improper standard," McCarthy asserted, Unruh reports.

For all its empty verbiage about "discrimination," the NFL's moral hypocrisy is blatant, even as in reality it embraces an intolerance that would exclude the entire state of Texas unless Texas submits to the NFL's attempt to impose extremist beliefs that contradict responsible ethics, basic biology, and a respect for the safety and well-being of those who might attend NFL games.

“We demand to know what role the NFL has in dictating the values of Texas, interfering with something outside of regulating their own sport and placing our women and children in harm’s way to give preference to one-tenth of one percent who are confused about their gender," the coalition of pastors fired back in reply.

"The pastors said if the NFL's values 'include requiring that men can use women's restrooms, we have a special message for the commissioner and Mr. McCarthy: Pastors of every color and every corner of this state are declaring that we choose mothers over money, daughters over dollars and privacy over predators'," WND reports.

CIA Broke the Law to Take Out Its Critic General Flynn

By Rick Pearcey • February 14, 2017, 07:52 AM

"Make no mistake, we have just witnessed an operation by members of the CIA to take out a high official of our own government," Thomas Lifson writes at American Thinker. "An agency that is widely believed to have brought down democratically elected governments overseas is now practicing the same dark arts in domestic American politics."

Lifson says New York Democrat Sen. Chuck Shumer "laid out on January 2nd what was going to happen to the Trump administration if it dared take on the deep state -- the permanent bureaucracy that has contempt for the will of the voters and feels entitled to run the government for its own benefit":

New Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) said Tuesday that President-elect Donald Trump is "being really dumb" by taking on the intelligence community and its assessments on Russia's cyber activities.

"Let me tell you, you take on the intelligence community, they have six ways from Sunday at getting back at you," Schumer told MSNBC's Rachel Maddow.

“So even for a practical, supposedly hard-nosed businessman, he’s being really dumb to do this."

"Or, as the old rueful saying has it, 'You’ve got to go along to get along'," Lifson notes.

That "rueful saying" has a hard edge, Lifson warns, for it "means that we the people had better acknowledge that the bureaucrats have turned into our masters, and the old expression 'public servant' is as ironic as anything Orwell came up with. Schumer knows this and likes it, because the deep state wants a bigger more powerful government, just as he does."

Moreover, Lifson continues, "The law was broken by whoever leaked the transcripts to the media. Not only is the crime underlying the 'scandal' being ignored, the criminals are being hailed. On Morning Joe’s first hour today, the host, a former congressman (i.e., a lawmaker) himself, called the leakers 'heroes'."

The upshot? Lipson writes: "This interference in domestic politics by the CIA should be regarded as a major threat to our democracy, but of course our Trump-hating domestic media are reveling in a major point scored against the new president."

Trump-Hating Celeb Asks If Spray-Painted Symbols Are "Attempt at Swastikas" -- Oops

By Rick Pearcey • February 13, 2017, 10:34 AM

Sarah Silverman's reactionary ignorance is tragic -- and as this story shows, offers justified opportunity for humor at her expense. 

If you're going to fight Nazis, it's probably important to know who they are and what inspires them -- not just their symbols but also the content of their philosophy.

Good: "Demoralizing" Gorsuch Confirms Trump's Attacks on Rogue Judiciary Are Working

By Rick Pearcey • February 9, 2017, 10:33 AM

"So the judiciary is demoralized and disheartened! That's just great!" Ed Straker writes at American Thinker. "Then Trump's attacks are working. Perhaps left-wing activist judges will think twice in the future before trying to take over powers from the executive branch." (Power and authority concerning immigration policy, for example.)

"What other emotions should Judge James Robart and the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals be feeling"? Straker asks. Why, of course: "Embarrassment," "Shame," "Fear," and "Surprise" -- not to mention a few discomforting physical experiences.

Army Special Forces Veteran-Owned Coffee Company Hits Back at Starbucks: Video

By Rick Pearcey • February 8, 2017, 12:46 PM

Fox News reports:

In response to Starbucks announcing it would hire 10,000 refugees to protest President Donald Trump's executive order on immigration, one veteran has a different plan.

Evan Hafer, an Army Special Forces veteran and CEO of Black Rifle Coffee Company, said he would hire 10,000 veterans.

"Our plan is to build 600 stores in the next six years. I'm gonna try to push this forward with the community behind me," Hafer said yesterday on Fox & Friends.

"According to January 2017 data from the Department of Labor, there is a 6.3 percent post 9/11 veteran unemployment rate in the country," FoxNews reports.

Hafer says "he would be mostly hiring from this group but would extend to Gulf War veterans as well if need be," according to Fox.

"Black Rifle Coffee Company was founded two years ago and has a more than 50 percent hiring rate of veterans as employees," Fox reports. 

How did combat combine with coffee to enter the marketplace battlefield? Hafer explains:

I started Black Rifle Coffee Company to provide a high-quality, roast-to-order coffee to the pro 2A [2nd Amendment] and veteran communities.

Between deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan, I was working to refine both my coffee roasting skills and my firearms skills.

I have spent over a decade researching coffee, refining my roast profiles and (of course) drinking what I roast.

Black Rifle Coffee is quite literally the combination of my two favorite passions. I take pride in the coffee we roast, the veterans we employ, and the causes we support.

Not surprisingly, therefore: "Hiring vets is not PR for me. It's who we are," Hafer says.

Radical Liberal Terrorism Watch: Violent Campus Rioting Reveals Modern Liberals as Fascist Tyrants

By Rick Pearcey • February 7, 2017, 02:01 PM

Tom Trinko writes at American Thinker:

The violent riots on college campuses designed to shut down free speech are simply the latest sign of the elephant in the room: modern liberals are fascist tyrants at heart who reject democracy, free speech, and pretty much everything else in the Constitution.

They are not patriots with a different vision of democracy, but traitors who want to remake America into a one-party state where the government rules the people. . . .

"It's time to stop pretending that the people who are the public face of modern liberalism are the loyal opposition," Trinko writes. "Instead, we should shout from the rooftops that they are fascists who wish to put the American people in chains."

Dallas Homeowner Fights Off Home Invasion Gang -- Video

By Rick Pearcey • February 6, 2017, 08:26 AM

The following news story describes a win for the good guys and is an example of the God-given unalienable right to life, which contains the embedded corollary of the human right to self-defense (atheistic naturalism or secularism has no adequate intellectual basis for such rights).

Thus writes A.W.R. Hawkins at Breitbart:

Surveillance video of a foiled home invasion shows the homeowner lying in wait before springing into action and firing several rounds at the suspects.

The incident occurred last week in Dallas, Texas.

According to CBSDFW, homeowner Terry Morgan woke up to the sound of someone knocking on his door just before 5 a.m. He looked at footage from his surveillance cameras and saw a female suspect knocking, then saw a male suspect who was holding what appeared to be an AK-style rifle.

Morgan "was able to fight back with a gun and a camera," the news presenter on CBS DFW reports.

"I know that if they get into this house, I might not live to see that sun that's coming up in a few hours. So immediately I thought about, you know, survival," Morgan says during a video news interview.

You can read the rest of Hawkins' story here. And here is the video of the CBS Dallas Fort Worth news report.

A final note: Homeowner Terry Morgan is right to protect the borders of his domicile, just as the America people are right to protect the borders of our nation.

It's neither loving nor compassionate to allow uninvited people to enter one's proper sphere of responsibility and sovereignty.

Whether large or small, individual or national, such entry equals invasion. And the healthy, humane, loving, and compassionate response begins with pushing the invader back into the deep, dark sea. You can serve tea and cookies later.
