    Not long ago, I got to know a very interesting person, who turned out to be a typically very confused liberal democrat. They can't hide all that anger and confusion behind their favorite slogan of "conservatives are full of hate!" for long. It's heartbreaking to watch such promise and talent and basic decency become wasted and used. Once, during a rare lucid, calm moment, he said to me that no one, the government or any powers that be, cared anything about him, because in the scheme of things, he was just a 'little fish'. He couldn't take any more facts...

    (snip)There’s a girl-power movement in the picture-book world(snip) The little girls (and boys) reading these books are being primed for action rather than lulled to sleep. They are curious. They are inquisitive. They are not shy. They are, in a word, woke. And they want to talk about Hillary Clinton —(snip) Simcha Jacobs, 6, of Honolulu — said she was excited about the event “because I might see Hillary!” “Maybe she’ll make a surprise appearance,” the girl’s mother said hopefully. She did not. But Simcha was not alone in wanting to talk about Hillary and the current state of affairs...

    The woman charged by the Department of Justice with stealing “Top Secret” information from the National Security Agency apparently believes being white is a form of terrorism.That’s according to a tweet the alleged leaker, Reality Winner, sent in February. Winner, who is herself white, tweeted at rapper Kanye West that he should make a shirt declaring whiteness an act of terror.“@kanyewest you should make a shirt that says, ‘being white is terrorism’,” she tweeted.Winner’s social media history is filled with left-wing messages and support for progressives like Bernie Sanders, as The Daily Caller’s Chuck Ross has previously documented.

    Parents, create ‘Havens at Home’ for all your school aged children. They are no longer being taught at school, but only brainwashed by the surrealistic politics of the progressives. It’s time to kick Progressive Politics 101 out to the curb, into the gutter where it truly belongs. Progressive Politics 101 is no longer a bunch of political bigwigs sitting around Congress deciding how the lives of the citizenry should be lived. PP 101’s taken over front row centre as the dominating factor in the NEWS of the day, which, in reality, is nothing more than Hollywood style entertainment.
  • Elian Gonzalez Mourns Death of Fidel Castro

    11/27/2016 2:49:26 PM PST · by nickcarraway · 48 replies
    Elian Gonzalez, the Cuban boy who was involved in an international custody battle 16 years ago in Miami, is mourning the death of Fidel Castro, a man he compared to a "father." Elian was a photogenic five-year-old in 1999 when he was found floating on an inner tube off the Florida coast. Sixteen years later, he is recalling Fidel Castro as a man he likened to a father. In an interview on Cuban State TV Saturday, he said he wanted Fidel to be proud of him. Speaking in Spanish, he said, "He is a father who like my father, I...
  • Kids are taking the feds -- and possibly Trump -- to court over climate change

    "President-elect Donald Trump is likely to find himself the subject of a federal court case next year. The subject: climate change. And the plaintiffs: 21 children who want to ensure they have the right to a livable atmosphere. A federal judge on Thursday denied the federal government's motion to dismiss the "climate kids" case, meaning their lawsuit over climate change will go to trial in federal court in Oregon, likely next year. The kid plaintiffs, ages 9 to 20, allege the federal government is doing far too little to keep dangerous global warming in check, and is actually creating warming...

    Osi Imeokparia, the Clinton campaign's chief product officer (don't ask), was interviewed on NPR yesterday and asked how she would feel if Donald Trump won the election. If you listen at about the 12-minute mark, you can hear her start to sob hysterically. "If Donald Trump is the victor, how devastating will that be to you?" she is asked. "Fairly. As you can see, I am a woman of color. I also am a recent naturalized citizen of the United States. On all dimensions this campaign is very personal (sob!) ... (sob! sob! sob!) ... So to work on behalf...

    A freshman tentatively raises her hand and takes the microphone. “I’m really scared to ask this,” she begins. “When I, as a white female, listen to music that uses the N word, and I’m in the car, or, especially when I’m with all white friends, is it O.K. to sing along?” The answer, from Sheree Marlowe, the new chief diversity officer at Clark University, is an unequivocal “no.”

    Townhall ^ | March 15, 2016 | Cortney O'Brien
    Texas's pro-life House Bill 2, which heavily regulates abortion clinics, made its way to the Supreme Court last week. So did pro-abortion activists. Carrying crude signs and wearing uterus costumes, the demonstrators made their presence known. Even more offensive than their costumes, however, was their inability to name an instance when abortion should be illegal. MRCTV’s Dan Joseph was stunned the protesters could not answer this simple question. The clip includes many head-shaking moments, including when the young woman dressed as the uterus refused to answer the question and punted an answer to "the medical professionals." Yet, the most interesting/infuriating...

    China and other countries want to sell me goods at a cheap price. Trump wants to put a stop to that in order to appease the visible victim, the angry unemployed widget worker. The invisible victims are much greater in number and any tariff or "fair trade" is awful for them. Who in their right mind complains when something is getting sold at a cheap price? It is time to put America first and stop Trump from increasing the price Americans pay for foreign goods.

    Alright people, we need to get it together. I say this because ‘Kid Warrior’ — the ‘Anti-Justin Bieber‘ — just gained major ground in being our Nation’s coolest teenager, and it’s because this 15 year-old eco-hip-hop artist/activist just teamed up with 20 other youths to sue our Federal Government for fossil fuel exploitation. His name is Xiuhtezcatl Martinez and he’s been owning the podium lately, demanding our government to reduce CO2 emissions. He also accuses our federal government of being responsible for allowing our nation’s climate system to be destroyed.

    Americans believe that there are six times as many gays and lesbians in the population as there actually are, according to new data released by Gallup. According to Gallup’s tracking surveys in the first four of 2015, 3.8 percent of the U.S. adult population says they are lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender. However, in a survey conducted May 6-10, Gallup asked: “Just your best guess, what percent of Americans today would you say are gay or lesbian?” On average, Americans said it was 23.2 percent. …

    A University of Saskatchewan student has gotten several bars to take down washroom signs, saying they promote "violence against women" and that the response to her initial concerns was a "very typical misogynistic, patriarchal response." The sign in question, which was up at a Canadian Brewhouse, is meant to portray a blue, male stick figure looking at a pink, female stick figure. It is meant to be funny and show that men like to look at women. Not so says Reanne Risdale, who is 29. Instead, she sees the sign as threatening to women, insensitive, and referenced Bill Cosby when...

    Despite the president's low approval ratings, and the continuing cacophony of hate directed toward him by Republicans and racists, any reasonable assessment of Barack Obama's accomplishments to date would conclude that his presidency could well go down as a time of historic achievement. The Affordable Care Act, the Lilly Ledbetter Act, the Dodd-Frank Financial Regulation Bill -- the largest since the New Deal -- and his economic policies bolstered by yeoman's work of the Federal Reserve, place Obama solidly in the company of presidents like FDR and LBJ. Despite widespread Republican disinformation about and unrelenting opposition to the Affordable Care...

    Elian Gonzalez, the focus of a bitter international custody dispute after he was rescued at sea as a child, left Cuba on Friday for the first time since 2000, when the U.S. government returned him to the island. Gonzalez, who also turned 20 on Friday, traveled to Quito, Ecuador, as part of a 200-member Cuban delegation to a weeklong youth conference there. "Fidel Castro for me is like a father," Gonzalez said in the recent interview. "I don't profess to have any religion but if I did my God would be Fidel Castro. He is like a ship that knew...

    A lot of us are fighting for an education, battling inequality and marching for justice. Quit calling us lazy! [SNIP] ....... I’m an early millennial, born in 1984, and when I started my education, I was able to attend a classroom that had gifted and special-ed programming in my neighborhood with an average class size of 20. Current millennials in Chicago, Detroit and Philadelphia are having sit-ins and organizing unions, as their schools are closed with class sizes of 29 called too small. When children are left crying at the end of the year because their schools won’t reopen, what...

    Renew America ^ | 15Sept13 | Selwyn Duke
    Every so often the wonks of wishful thinking give us an article about how blacks are becoming Republicans, how Hispanics are supposedly a natural GOP constituency, or, as is the subject here today, how the millennial generation is turning "conservative." Perhaps pundits asserting the last thing recall Winston Churchill's observation, "If you're not a liberal at 20, you have no heart; if you're not a conservative at 40, you have no brain." And perhaps they overlook that it's possible to raise a brainless generation. Don't think, as one might, that this will be a typical analysis sneering at the proverbial...

    When an American convert to Islam was revealed as the wife of the dead Boston bombing suspect, Lauren Schreiber wasn’t surprised at what came next. Comments from former acquaintances and complete strangers immediately suggested that 24-year-old Katherine Russell, a New England doctor’s daughter, must have been coerced and controlled by her husband, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, who died last week in a firefight with police.
