    Wholesale retailer Costco announced Tuesday evening that they have reversed a decision to remove conservative filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza’s bestselling book from stores, following an outcry from thousands of angry customers. “Costco is not a book store. Our book shelf space is very limited,” a statement posted on Facebook said. “We exercise discipline in the best utilization of that limited space based solely on what our members are buying. We can’t carry every title that our members are interested in reading. We are constantly monitoring book sales, and make decisions to pull books off the shelves frequently based on sales volume...

    BROOKLYN, NY, June 6, 2014 (LifeSiteNews.com) -- Two months after Kickstarter rejected two pro-life films because of its project standards, the nation's largest crowdsourcing website has streamlined those standards. In a June 3 blog post, Kickstarter announced that its approval process has been simplified, whittling a laundry list of rules "down to three basic principles." Additionally, rather than ask for approval, project organizations will have the option to simply click a "Launch Now" button that will allow projects to launch without approval from Kickstarter's editors.

    LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — NBA Commissioner Adam Silver announced Tuesday Clippers owner Donald Sterling will be suspended for life and fined $2.5 million in response to the racist remarks he allegedly made in a recorded audio clip. Silver spoke to the press at 11 a.m. news conference from New York, stating he will “do everything in my power” to force the sale of the Clippers. “The hateful opinions voiced by that man are those of Mr. Sterling. The views expressed by Mr. Sterling are deeply offensive and harmful. That they came from an NBA owner only heightens the damage and...

    For the second time, producers of a planned pro-life film effort have had to switch from Kickstarter to IndieGoGo for their crowdfunding efforts. Filmmakers Phelim McAleer and Ann McIlhenny took their Gosnell Movie project to IndieGoGo after Kickstarter insisted that they could shut down the effort at any time if they didn’t like the language used to promote it, and another pro-life project called Stolen Moments has gotten a rejection letter from Kickstarter as well.

    PASADENA >> Plans to build a Chick-fil-A restaurant across from Pasadena City College were put on hold this week after a divided council approved a request by Councilman Terry Tornek to revisit the restaurant chain’s request for building permits. The project, which calls for an expansion of the existing drive-thru as well as removal of two protected trees, among other changes at the former Burger King site, was approved by a hearing officer in December and granted a conditional use permit by the Board of Zoning Appeals by a 3-2 vote in March. However, Tornek requested the project be revisited...

    Internet activists are at it again. Following yesterday’s news regarding the appointment of Condoleezza Rice, former United States Secretary of State and National Security Advisor, to the board of cloud storage and syncing service Dropbox, a petition has sprung up online, demanding that users tell Dropbox they’re opposed to this move, and threaten to leave the service if Rice isn’t removed from the board. The appointment was not met without controversy, of course, as Rice’s position in the Bush administration saw her commenting on Saddam Hussein’s alleged weapons of mass destruction, which played a role in the U.S. deciding to...

    First Amendment enthusiasts are thrilled that Mike Adams, a criminology professor at the University of North Carolina-Wilmington, won his lawsuit against administrators who denied him a promotion because of his conservative, Christian views. Adams joined the university in 1993. He was an atheist at the time. By the year 2000, he had converted to Christianity and become an outspoken political conservative. He eventually wrote columns for Townhall.com. In 2006, he was denied a promotion. Administrators were retaliating against him for his conservative views, he claimed. The jury agreed. Adams’s lawyers said the victory is an important one for free speech...

    I’m sorry to arrive late to this controversy — explanation forthcoming in a later posting — but my impression is that the word “blacklist” has not been mentioned much in the debate over the Robertson family, GLAAD, and the A&E channel. Or if it has been mentioned, it certainly hasn’t had the central role that it should have had in this row. For what GLAAD has been operating is a classic blacklist operation. Its object is not to persuade those who disagree with it over the morality of same-sex relationships to change their minds. Nor is it principally intended to...

    Duck Dynasty has been sacrificed on the altar of political correctness. By now you probably know that A&E indefinitely suspended Phil Robertson, the patriarch of the Duck Dynasty family, for following the teachings of the Holy Bible. Nothing says tolerance and diversity by silencing the Christians and shoving them in a closet. Between you and me, I think Duck Dynasty ought to indefinitely suspend A&E. Phil ran afoul of intolerant leftwing bullies after making comments about homosexuality to GQ magazine. When the writer asked Phil what he considered to be sinful behavior, he replied: “Start with homosexual behavior and just...

Štefan Füle, the enlargement commissioner, said on Thursday (4 October) he was concerned by the Serbian government’s action, which comes ahead of the EU’s progress report on the country due next Wednesday. “I have taken note with regret of the Serbian authorities’ decision,” he said in a statement, noting that Belgrade also called off the annual pride march last year.

The survey questions “were so blatant that I thought we’d get a much lower rate of agreement,” Mr. Inbar said. “Usually you have to be pretty tricky to get people to say they’d discriminate against minorities.” One question, according to the researchers, “asked whether, in...

I bolded certain text that – in my opinion – attempts to deflate the importance of the book and the author. There are nine reviews – eight favorable and one not-so-favorable. That one was by a Charles Miller and here it is - This book is pure bull. Don't be taken in. McCarthy ruined innocent lives. As you can see, Mr. Miller is quite eloquent in his review. That was sarcasm, in case anyone missed it. Evans's lively book seeks, first,...

    After attending a Young Republicans conference at Boston’s Marriott Long Wharf hotel, Boston Globe reporter Tracy Jan spoke with Candidate for the Massachusetts GOP Chairmanship Bob Parks. Parks’ speech at the gathering is said to have been very well received and Ms. Jan even made sure to ask for the correct spelling of Parks’ name for an article she would be writing. Bob told me that he asked Jan why the Globe had been snubbing his candidacy. He then advised me that Ms. Jan said that she didn’t know. However, when Jan’s article was written and published, Parks name did...

    Special educational needs teacher Phil Cadman handed in his notice after governors at Abraham Guest High School in Orrell voted to reinstate disgraced classroom assistant Christopher Causey. Mr Cadman, 36, told the Evening Post: "I have taken this action because I was not prepared to work in a school alongside a convicted racist. The decision to allow him to continue to work at the school is fundamentally wrong." Causey, 27, a learning mentor who provides individual support to pupils in the classroom, racially abused and spat at an Asian man during a road rage incident. He was convicted of racially...

    LOS ANGELES (AP) - Marc Lawrence, whose pockmarked face and brooding mannerisms made him a natural for roles as the tough guy, gangster and undertaker in dozens of movies beginning in the 1930s, has died. He was 95. Lawrence died early Monday at his Palm Springs home from heart failure, said Alicia Lawrence, the actor's second wife. "He was the gangster in his movies, that was definitely his style," said Alicia, a Mexico native who married Lawrence two years ago. "But in real life he was a really good person." After spending eight days in the hospital a few weeks...

    Like something in a B-horror flick, Janet Jackson's radioactive right breast has morphed into the monster that's eating Hollywood. In the past 24 hours: • Jackson's name was stricken from the official list of presenters for Sunday's Grammy Awards telecast on CBS. That's the same network that beamed us the Super Bowl game during which Jackson's breast made its broadcast TV debut in a stunt that duet partner Justin Timberlake called a "wardrobe malfunction." According to one source close to the production, CBS and the Recording Academy are waiting for her to graciously bow out; if she does not soon,...
