    Our public libraries have been taken over by liberal ideologues and nowhere has this been more evident than at the American Library Association (ALA) annual conference held last month in Washington DC. The world’s largest library conference, attended by 21,460 people, featured over 100 workshops with the theme “equity, diversity, and inclusion.” As you would expect, these workshops included topics such as Drag Queen Storytimes, LGBT issues, non-traditional families, minors’ “rights” to privacy, and gender confusion. According to The Federalist, “Politically charged talks and workshops like these formed at least one-third of the conference offerings.” Of all the different themes...

    While you were enjoying your Fourth of July weekend, I was attending a national conference on socialism. Why? Because socialism is having its moment on the left. Since there’s often confusion as to what socialism really is, I decided to attend the Socialism 2019 conference at the Hyatt Hotel in Chicago over the Fourth of July weekend. The conference, which had the tag line “No Borders, No Bosses, No Binaries,” contained a cross-section of the most pertinent hard-left thought in America. Among the sponsors were the Democratic Socialists of America and Jacobin, a quarterly socialist magazine. The walls of the...

    Move over Back Obama: Hillary Clinton isn’t going away, either. As the midterms approach, the throwbacks of the Democrat Party are taking center stage. This week, Clinton will be appearing at a "Lesbians Who Tech" conference in New York, according to a promotional video put out by the group. The video features a montage of clips of Clinton speaking to what she thinks are gay values. "Grab your pantsuits," the video challenges attendees. Isn't that oppressive to all of those LGBTQ nudists out there? The video states there will be 3,500 "lesbians, LGBTQ women, non-binary, allies" in attendance. Meanwhile, Barack...

    I did it. I descended into the heart of liberal darkness, Berkeley, California and attended the Tenth International Conference on Climate Change: Impacts & Responses. As you may have guessed, I’m a climate change skeptic. And while this conference was interesting and gratifying for a number of reasons, it did not change my view as a climate change skeptic, but in fact, reinforced it. My own presentation (for solving climate change while making a huge profit – i.e., the Republican way) was not widely attended, but the conversation was lively and I gained some allies. Without further ado here are...

    Jerusalem District Commander Yoram Halevi signed an order Thursday forbidding a conference of Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas' Fatah party in honor of terrorists. The conference was to be held in the Issawiya neighborhood of eastern Jerusalem to honor the mothers of shaheeds (martyrs) and those wounded while attacking Israelis. Following the issuance of the order and the instructions of the district commander, police forces arrived at the scene and prevented the event from being held. Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan stated that "my policy is clear: to prevent any occurrence of incitement and support of terrorism in any way...

    A U.S.-Turkish business conference set to be held at Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C., next month has been postponed in order to “facilitate greater attendance” for the annual conclave.The decision comes amid thawing diplomatic and business relations between the American and Turkish governments.The conference, hosted by the American-Turkish Council (ATC) and Turkish-American Business Council (TAIK), was scheduled for the end of April. Ahval, a news outlet that covers Turkish politics, reported on Monday that the conference was being postponed because of attendance issues. Ahval’s sources said that some major American defense companies have decided to end their sponsorship of the...

    Last week the National League of Cities hosted a conference in Washington, D.C. where a couple thousand mayors and other municipal leaders from around the nation met to address various challenges facing their home towns in 2018. You can debate the usefulness of such confabs all you like, but the concept of shared experiences and an opportunity to develop solutions among local leaders surely has some value. Getting a bit carried away with the concept, however, was Washington Post editorial page editor Fred Hiatt. So impressed was he with some of the ideas which came out of the meeting that...

    More than 40 million people watched the NFL’s two preliminaries for the Super Bowl on Sunday, a drop of more than 8 percent compared to last year’s conference championship games. The Nielsen company said an average of 43.2 million people watched the games. While that’s down from the 47.1 million who watched the conference championships last year, it was a more heartening report than the NFL had gotten only a week earlier. This year’s divisional championship round had seen a 16 percent dip in audience size. […] After seeing viewership erosion all year, the NFL will be anxious to see...

    In the early hours of Saturday morning, the Senate passed a sweeping tax overhaul bill in largely party-line vote. Just one Republican, Tennessee Senator Bob Corker, voted against it on deficit concerns. The Congressional Budget Office estimated the bill would cost $1.47 trillion over a decade. Many Republicans continue to say the bill will pay for itself through greater economic growth, despite all analyses to the contrary. The final Senate bill differs from the tax bill passed by the House in mid-November. Those differences now must be reconciled and a final piece of legislation voted on by both chambers.

    The House and Senate have now each passed different versions of Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. Both bills are big improvement to America’s out-of-date tax code and could boost the economy by almost 3 percent, leading to more jobs and higher wages for working Americans. Both bills cut taxes for individuals and businesses, largely repeal the state and local tax deduction, and allow businesses to invest more in the American economy through temporary expensing. The bills now head to a conference committee where a unified bill will be crafted. Here are some of the major differences you need to know...

    DETROIT—In public, transgender activists often blame conservatives for being intolerant. But behind closed doors inside their own safe spaces, a different story unfolds—one in which the most ardent supporters of the Women’s March are the oppressors. Speaking at the Women’s Convention in Detroit, an event organized by the leaders of the Women’s March, transgender women berated conference organizers for assuming transgender speakers were qualified to only speak on panels addressing trans-specific issues. “Why is my voice confined to just one panel?” asked Katelyn Burns, one of three transgender women featured on the panel, “Not All Pussies Are Pink and Not...

    Worried that “xenophobia and nationalism are on the rise,” organizers of a recent academic conference invited presenters to “decenter English as the de facto language” of academia. The Society for Social Studies of Science is particularly concerned that English is the official language of both the US and the UK, whose current policies they say "send a message of insulation and parochialism to the world."

    The “Socialism 2017” conference is rolling into Chicago next month and more than 1,500 professors, authors, students and activists are expected to attend and strategize systems to “fight the right” and resist the “political system that spawned Trump,” and build the left from a “Marxist perspective.” Some of today’s most controversial anti-white, anti-Trump professors are headlining the event, which boasts more than 100 workshops committed to tearing down our country, “building a socialist society,” and covering the debates on the left along with the hidden history of working-class and socialist struggles. In layman’s terms, the conference is predicated upon stripping...

Among the participants in the meetings are PYD-co head Asya Abdulla, the president of the Kobani local administration Anwar Muslim, and the former mayor of Diyarbakir Osman Baydemir. Representatives of Kurdish parties in Iran and Iraq will also participate in the meeting. But...
