    Shareholder activists say they shake up companies by bringing in new, better ideas. What they don't bring, it turns out, is women. Or people of color. Firms targeted by activists end up with more white men on their boards, often replacing women and minorities in the process, according to a study by proxy-voting firm ISS. The researchers looked at 380 board seats spread across 93 companies in the S&P 1500 index targeted by activists between 2011 and 2015. A separate Bloomberg News analysis of the same period found that five of the biggest U.S. activist funds sought 174 board positions...

    Organizers of the "Women's March" and Michael Bloomberg's gun control lobbying group Everytown are participating in an anti-National Rifle Association rally today. They are currently walking from Fairfax, Virginia to Washington D.C. as part of the resistance movement. Their main arguments? -Real men don't need guns -No one is safe unless everyone is safe (whatever that means) -Loaded guns under beds are bad -The NRA doesn't respect women's rights -The NRA is full of bigots -Etc. But what's a leftist rally without a massive dose of hypocrisy? Turns out a number of Women's March leaders are walking with armed security...

    The Faith and Freedom Coalition kicked off its Road to Majority conference in Washington, DC on June 8. The highly-anticipated conference for people of faith and conservative activists included such high profile speakers as President Donald Trump. Dr. Ralph Reed, founder and President of the Faith and Freedom Coalition, which organized the event, introduced President Trump as “my friend, our friend, the President of the United States, President Donald Trump” causing the crowd to give the chief executive a sweeping standing ovation. The President was nonetheless at home with his people. After all, according to Reed, not only has Donald...

    Video at link. San Francisco has taken its defiance of the feds to a new level, ending its cooperation with the FBI in an anti-terror initiative begun after 9/11 - a move crtitics say could get innocent people killed. Critics say the sanctuary city by the bay's latest decision to forego cooperation with Washington, by dropping out of the FBI's Joint Terrorism Task Force, could put lives at risk. The JTTF has been credited with foiling 93 Islamist terrorist attacks and plots against the U.S. since 2001, including 12 this year, according to the Washington, D.C.-based Heritage Foundation.

    FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- A couple hundred people showed up at Fresno City Hall Friday to demand the mayor reverse his decision and they want a response by March 16. It was a peaceful protest fueled by emotion and solidarity. Fresno mayor Lee Brand's announcement to not make Fresno a "sanctuary city" drew organized criticism Friday. Activists gathered in front of city hall to express their displeasure and protest the mayor's decision. "He is our representative," protest organizer Ariana Martinez Lott said. "He's representing us, so, we as a people, are telling him one of the platforms was that he...

    Radical leftists are planning to make Jan. 20 the most chaotic Inauguration Day in American history. Their stated goal is to "disrupt" the Inauguration festivities as much as possible, and they are planning a wide range of actions to achieve that stated goal. Some of the more moderate groups are using terms such as "civil resistance" and "civil disobedience," but others are openly talking about "blockades," jumping barricades, throwing projectiles and "citywide paralysis." My hope is that all of their efforts will turn out to be a big flop, but it is important to understand that these groups are well-funded,...

The business of ‘Making America Great Again’ is already in full swing Monumentally mouthy Michelle Obama should ditch the pious act in claiming that the election of Donald J. Trump leaves America in a sorry state of “hopelessness”. Like some of her tacky outfits it doesn’t look good on her. Here she is in the closing act of her last holiday on American taxpayers taking advantage of an Oprah she once tried to drive out the White House to...

    What the Dakota Access Pipeline Is Really About The standoff isn’t about tribal rights or water, but a White House that ignores the rule of law. Kevin Cramer A little more than two weeks ago, during a confrontation between protesters and law enforcement, an improvised explosive device was detonated on a public bridge in southern North Dakota. That was simply the latest manifestation of the “prayerful” and “peaceful” protests against the Dakota Access Pipeline. Escalating tensions were temporarily defused Sunday when the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, at the direction of the Obama administration, announced it would refuse to grant...

    I wish this was a fake news satirical story, but sadly, it’s true. Liberal activists are outraged that the seasonal song Baby it’s Cold Outside should be banned because, wait for it, it promotes sexual harrassment and non-consensual sex.It’s a movement that started a few years ago and has been taken up with more fervor and passion every Christmas season. But this season, the movement has gained steam because, according to HuffPo, a pair of songwriters have offered up alternate lyrics to make the song more politically correct, socially acceptable, and completely awful: The duo, singer-songwriters Lydia Liza and...

    Three Thai human rights activists have been charged with criminal defamation over a report alleging torture by soldiers in southern Thailand. Allegations of military abuses in the south, home to a longstanding Muslim insurgency are nothing new. But there has been a sharp increase in the use of criminal defamation laws against government critics in recent years, BBC correspondent Jonathan Head says. Rights groups condemned the charges. The trio face up to two years in prison if found guilty of defaming the military, and a further three years if they are found to have violated the country's computer crimes act.

    Greg Nash Black activists took aim at the financial arm of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) on Monday, with scathing accusations that the group is tied too closely to corporations undermining human rights and other black causes. In a letter to members of the CBC, the advocates –– including leaders of Black Lives Matter and ColorOfChange –– called on the lawmakers to overhaul the board of the CBC Political Action Committee in order to "end the dominance of corporate lobbyists in its decision making." The critics say the current board is too closely aligned with corporations they deem harmful...
