    President Donald Trump will nominate a woman to succeed Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on Saturday, and observers expect him to choose Amy Coney Barrett, a judge on the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals. On Friday, after news outlets reported that Trump would choose Barrett, HBO host Bill Maher savaged the potential nominee for her Roman Catholic faith. Yet perhaps no one has given a better response to such anti-religious bigotry than Barrett herself. “Apparently, the pick is going to be Amy Coney. We’re going to be saying the name a lot because she’s a f***ing nut. Religion, I...
  • Wine Careers Are the Embodiment of the American Dream But the Left Is Trying to Destroy Them

    A recent article from the San Francisco Chronicle cast wine professionals in a rather unflattering light and asserted that certain practices of sommeliers and wine journalists were actually racist. The author insisted that tasting terminology used by sommeliers and wine writers leaned too heavily on European influence and catered only to those of European heritage.  The author Esther Mobley, who is credited as the San Francisco Chronicle's wine critic, explains how she came to the conclusion that wine tasting terminology is racist and sexist to boot.  Wine language is so often absurd that it’s a punchline. Notes of smoldering tobacco or...

    More than 600 scholars have committed to halting their teaching duties for two days to participate in a teach-in on racism and police violence. It started when University of Pennsylvania Associate Professor of Religious Studies and Africana Studies Anthea Butler tweeted last week, “I would be down as a professor to follow the NBA and Strike for a few days to protest police violence in America.”

    Gov. Andrew Cuomo promised to crack down on large social events in Brooklyn after The Post reported three banquet halls in Borough Park appeared to be hosting Hasidic Jewish wedding parties on just one night this week after Mayor Bill de Blasio warned that a similar gathering there led to an “uptick” in coronavirus cases. “In the case of New York City, if there’s any evidence, or plans of weddings that would violate the law, they should forward those complaints to the NYPD or the mayor. If the mayor is not doing any enforcement actions, then the state will,” Cuomo...
  • Melania Viciously Attacked For Redoing the Rose Garden “Classless Illegal Immigrant…”

    I thought the left loved “illegal immigrants,” right? I mean, they want them to all come to live here and vote and stuff, so why all the hate and vitriol towards Melania (who is a legal citizen, by the way) just because she re-did the Rose Garden? The left has turned into a pack of rabid wolves over Melania’s changes in the Rose Garden – changes she made so that it could be more “handicap” accessible and people could see better…But forget all that, the mentally ill left has lost every last bit of soul and humanity and they literally...

    Washington, D.C. Newsroom, Aug 6, 2020 / 09:00 am MT (CNA).- A Catholic congressman is asking the U.S. Attorney General to respond to a spate of acts of vandalism against churches around the country. In a letter to Attorney General William Barr on Wednesday, Rep. Chuck Fleischmann (R-Tenn.) urged the Justice Department “to protect religious freedom and combat religious discrimination in the United States.” Fleischmann cited “nearly a dozen” acts of vandalism at Catholic churches in the U.S. as the impetus for his letter. “There is something to be said about how the rise in vandalism happening in places of...

    The U.S. Marine Corps (USMC) is facing backlash from both sides of the religious liberty debate after it planned a training session that was later canceled over the speaker’s background in Christianity -- fueling Congressional scrutiny of both the military and the nonprofit which appeared to prompt the cancellation. Air Force veteran Jay Lorenzen was slated to speak at an annual training for JAG reservists on Friday, but that came to a screeching halt after the Military Religious Freedom Foundation (MRFF) relayed its reservist clients’ concerns about Lorenzen’s beliefs influencing his talks. An MRFF press release boasted on Saturday that...

    Whose job is it to explain to my children that their white skin makes them bad? Is that me? Or do I leave it to the evening news, the NFL, Nike, the Democratic Party and the college professors? Who is to teach white children how to deal with and submit to the shame into which they were born? If the sins of the fathers are to be visited upon the heads of the children, how do you get white kids woke to the inescapable burden of lifelong guilt they bear by virtue of their skin color? How do you keep...

    Associated Press ^ | Mar 21, 2014 10:17 AM EDT | John Hanna and David Crary
    Fred Phelps Sr. led his small Topeka church for more than two decades in a bellicose crusade against gays and lesbians, saying they were worthy of death and openly declaring—often at military funerals—that the U.S. was doomed because of its tolerance of homosexuality. But in targeting grieving families of troops killed overseas, taunting people entering other churches and carrying signs with anti-gay slurs and vulgar language or symbols, Phelps and his Westboro Baptist congregation created public circuses that may have helped the gay-rights movement. Following Phelps’ death Wednesday at age 84, some gay-rights advocates suggested that he and his church...

    White privilege is often described through the lens of Peggy McIntosh’s groundbreaking essay “White Privilege: Unpacking the Invisible Knapsack.” Originally published in 1988, the essay helps readers recognize white privilege by making its effects personal and tangible. For many, white privilege was an invisible force that white people needed to recognize. It was being able to walk into a store and find that the main displays of shampoo and panty hose were catered toward your hair type and skin tone. It was being able to turn on the television and see people of your race widely represented. It was being...

    Don Lemon, alleged news reporter at CNN, had a merry old time making fun of Donald Trump and his supporters on his program with two other yahoos who thought it was hysterical to mock Southern accents and question our ability to read good. After his unbelievably stupid breakdown on air, where he pretended to wipe tears from his eyes because he was laughing so hard, he is now claiming he had no idea what his guests were actually saying. Yeah, right. "This is personally important to me to address this," Lemon said at the end of his show on Tuesday....

In fact, the LGBT activists were clearly surprised and disheartened that the parents were ready for them.

    With 'End of Discussion'-style arguments and tactics running rampant in our politics, it's important to note that while the collective Left represents more systemic and egregious offender, the Right routinely indulges in the same sort of demagoguery, too.  Examples include lumping all Black Lives Matter activists as virulently, or even violently, anti-police, conflating support for a military conflict with respect for 'the troops,' and dismissing all criticisms of Israeli government policy with anti-Semitism.  These are unfair generalizations designed to shut down legitimate debate and disqualify the opposition.  But that doesn't mean that hardcore anti-law enforcement attitudes, contempt for the military,...

    The College Fix ^ | Jessica Resuta
    “Math equity” doesn’t mean 1 + 1 = 2. The term refers to the growing insistence among educators that teaching math in the classroom comes with some inherently biased methodology that must be addressed. Proponents of “math equity” also stress the importance of social justice issues such as race, diversity and gender in math education — a trend that’s catching on. More professors and educators are tweeting under the hashtag #MathEquity to share strategies on the topic, and webinars and other pedagogical sessions on it abound.
