SOURCEWhatever you think of Alex Jones and/or his content, understand that this is not going to stop with his site. The next major target is the NRA, most probably, along with major conservative sites, just in time for the midterms.

    The Muslim Council of Britain is calling on the British government to ban renowned evangelist Franklin Graham because they allege his views on Islam and same-sex marriage violate the nation's hate speech laws. Graham, the president of Samaritan's Purse and the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, is scheduled to lead a series of religious gatherings beginning Sept. 21. "In the past the government has banned individuals whom they claim are 'not conducive to the public good.' Mr. Graham's remarks are on record and clearly demonstrate a hatred for Muslims and other minorities," the organization said in a statement. One government leader...

    “The health risks associated with alcohol are massive,” said study senior author Dr. Emmanuela Gakidou, a researcher in the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation at the University of Washington. “Our findings are consistent with other recent research, which found clear and convincing correlations between drinking and premature death, cancer, and cardiovascular problems. Zero alcohol consumption minimizes the overall risk of health loss.” “The study does not distinguish between beer, wine, and liquor due to a lack of evidence when estimating the disease burden,” she added. “However, we used data on all alcohol-related deaths generally and related health outcomes to...

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is both pushing back against and apologizing over last Thursday’s Chronicle article detailing her campaign’s banning of the press from community town halls in Corona and the Bronx. In a series of tweets both last Friday and Sunday, the Democratic nominee for the 14th Congressional District claimed that the open-to-the-public meetings were specifically for certain groups of people. “With this town hall non-story, it was designed to protect and invite vulnerable populations to public discourse: immigrants, victims of domestic abuse and so on,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote last Friday. “We indicated previously that the event would be closed to the...

    Montreal’s mayor called on pet owners to take responsibility for their animals on Monday after a weekend dog attack on two young siblings that caused serious injuries. Police said a four-year-old girl and a seven-year-old boy were recovering from serious injuries to their head and arm, respectively, in two separate incidents on Sunday just hours apart involving the same aggressive dog. The dog belonged to an acquaintance of the children’s grandmother, who was watching the animal in Montreal North. The attack came as Montreal city council is set to vote on a new series of dangerous dog measures focusing on...

    Insanity: Despite the fact that you could bury the world’s trash in a minuscule portion of the Earth, Left-wing environmental wackos are hell-bent on getting as many modern conveniences banned or regulated as possible. In recent months they’ve managed to convince liberal lawmakers and policymakers that plastic straws will destroy the planet if they are not banned from at least some major cities. Now these same goofballs are coming after another party favorite: Balloons.

    The campaign manager of a Democrat seeking a U.S. House seat in upstate New York quit the campaign Tuesday, after a video showed the candidate saying she wouldn't publicly endorse a ban on certain firearms -- for fear that she’d lose the election. Mike Szustak, who since April had run the campaign of candidate Tedra Cobb, told the Watertown Daily Times that he’s no longer part of Cobb's bid to unseat Republican incumbent Elise Stefanik in New York's 21st Congressional District. The departure follows revelations that Cobb won’t publicly state that she favors banning assault rifles. The video was first...

    Starbucks, the nation's largest food and drink retailer, announced on Monday that it would be going strawless.... As is to be expected, Starbucks' decision was greeted with universal adulation.... Yet missing from this fanfare was the inconvenient fact that by ditching plastic straws, Starbucks will actually be increasing its plastic use. As it turns out, the new nitro lids that Starbucks is leaning on to replace straws are made up of more plastic than the company's current lid/straw combination.

    Hawaii just became the first state to ban certain sunscreens as a measure to protect the state's essential coral reefs. Hawaii Gov. David Ige signed a bill on Tuesday, July 3, banning the sale of sunscreens containing two chemicals, oxybenzone and octinoxate, believed to harm coral reefs and other marine ecosystems. State lawmakers passed the legislation in early May. Senate Bill 2571 prohibits the sale and distribution of non-prescribed sunscreens on the islands that contain oxybenzone or octinoxate, which can be deadly for coral larvae. The ban will not be applied to medically prescribed sunscreens or makeup that contain oxybenzone...

    Authored by Michael Krieger via Liberty Blitzkrieg blog, Allowing government to arbitrarily determine which substances human beings can put into their own bodies is one of the most idiotic things a society can do. As such, its no surprise Congress is salivating at the prospect of furthering this travesty by giving additional discretion on the matter to drug war-crazed loon, Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Reason published an excellent article on the topic in yesterday’s piece: Congress Wants To Give Jeff Sessions Unprecedented New Drug War Powers. Here are some key excerpts: If you think the Department of Justice has more than...
  • Saudi Arabia's ban on women driving about to end

    Saudi women are to be allowed to drive from midnight local time (21:00 GMT) after a ban comes to an end. The change was announced last September and Saudi Arabia issued the first licences to women earlier this month. It was the only country left in the world where women could not drive and families had to hire private chauffeurs for female relatives. However the move comes amid an intensified crackdown on activists who campaigned for the right to drive. At least eight women's rights activists are being detained and could face trial in a counter-terrorism court and long prison...

    When a Bay Area county decided to pass a law that effectively banned gun shows from its fairgrounds, it sparked one of the nation’s longest running legal battles over the right to bear arms. In the end, the county conceded and the gun shows were allowed to resume under stricter rules, leaving some of the central constitutional questions around the issue unsettled. Once again, gun shows at publicly-owned convention centers and fairgrounds are being targeted for expulsion around the state. And the legal roadmap is no less clear. History around such efforts shows a mix of outcomes, marked at times...
