    Last week The Ryersonian reported on an incident that involved two first-year journalism students who were turned away from an event organized by Racialized Students' Collective because they are white. Since then there has been a lot of commentary on the piece and a lot of debate -- a lot of the criticism is valid. There are two sides to the story: 1) the media has a right to attend public events and report on matters that are in the public interest. The student media needs to cover initiatives that are happening on campus so that we draw attention to...

    Putin and the Neoconservatives By William Pfaff Comment by Julio Severo: This article was kindly sent and recommended to me by a Pentecostal minister in the U.S. Its author, William Pfaff, said, “The resemblance of President Putin’s ambitions for his Russia to those of the neoconservatives in the contemporary United States bear a striking formal resemblance in the wish of both to recall a romanticized past.” For pro-family Christians, the important point is whether a president supports a pro-family agenda or anti-family agenda. We supported George W. Bush because of his generally pro-life stances, even though his neocon decision...

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)LINDENHURST, N.Y. (PIX11)– Suffolk County police are investigating a possible hate crime targeting an African-American family in Lindenhurst. Ronica Copes, a resident of the suburban neighborhood, received a letter saying “YOU DON’T BELONG HERE” and other hateful words on Thursday. Understandably so, she was disappointed at the sight of the hateful letter. “Unbelievable but then it’s not…our daily reality, I’ve just never seen it in this form,” Copes posted on Facebook. The writer of the flyer who says “Lidenhurst is 84 percent white” urges Copes in bold capital letters to “LEAVE AS SOON SHE CAN” because “IT WILL BE BETTER...

    There’s one refrain which the Democrat choir always breaks out whenever they propose new gun restrictions: Oh, we’re not trying to establish some national registry of gun owners. Perish the thought! But when you look under the covers of these various proposals, they all seem to come suspiciously close to doing just that. (Not that we’re suggesting anything here, mind you. Perish the thought.) And yet that same discussion has arisen once again now that Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney has resurrected the prospect of “closing loopholes” at gun shows. Funny how that works, eh? (From The Hill) Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-N.Y.)...

As a result of Arpaio and Sheridan’s filing on Friday, Snow canceled status hearings scheduled for May 29 and June 12, although he asked all parties to reserve the remaining June dates, beginning on the 16th, on which the trial is scheduled to resume.

Since the signing of this Executive Order, 55 Officers have been killed in the line of duty. Yet, this mattered little to Obama who justified his Executive Order as he spoke about “the distrust that exists between too many police departments and too many communities – the sense that in a country where our basic principle is equality under the law, too many individuals, particularly young people of color, do not feel they...

Progressive Ideology ‘Dehumanizes The Population’ Anthony Daniels, who uses the pen name, Theodore Dalrymple, says the West is “too weak-willed,” “accepts obvious untruths” and “treats people as objects.” In a 28-minute video interview with The Daily Caller, he says “the intellectual dishonesty of the West is the greatest threat – we can’t say what we really think.” Dalrymple, based on his work in British prisons, is a critic of “determinism” — the dominant progressive theory that minimizes personal responsibility and portrays people as forced, by their circumstances, to behave as they do. This theory, Dalrymple says, “dehumanizes the population.”...

    A few years ago, this column discussed certain disturbing findings regarding psychiatry and its relationship with the pharmaceutical industry: The major psychoactive drugs are no better than placebos; the “chemical imbalance” theory of mental illness is mostly nonsense; and psychoactive drugs are being given to children as young as two. The first finding was buried in clinical trials of antidepressants, in which side effects of real drugs (such as dry mouth) could be emulated in an otherwise non-active agent (aka removing “unblinding bias”). In these cases, there was absolutely no difference in efficacy between the antidepressant and the placebo. As...

Fairfax County Public Schools released a report recommending changes to their family life curriculum for grades 7 through 12. The changes, which critics call radical gender ideology, will be formally introduced next week. “The larger picture is this is really an attack on nature itself – the created order,” said Peter Sprigg of the Family Research Council. “Human beings...

When pressed on what those other groups were, he eventually admitted that they might include bigamists. This is a suggestion that comes up a lot, even from the Supreme Court.

    Formaldehyde is a simple and ubiquitous molecule, used in countless products and industrial processes. The compound is synthesized by virtually every life form, and does not accumulate in the environment. However, since formaldehyde (along with everything else) is a “chemical,” greedy fear entrepreneurs are more than willing to scare the public. In so doing, they not only extract millions of dollars in dubious donations, they routinely slander and libel dozens of perfectly fine products. Unfortunately, when industry attempts to fight back, the prevailing media narrative is nearly always rigged against it, based on the puerile notion that the fear entrepreneurs...

At present the officers are charged in District Court, which is a lower-level court not suited to the severity of the charges (which include second-degree depraved-heart murder.) Accordingly, it has always been anticipated that the charges would be moved to the Circuit Court, where jury trials are held, and where a probable cause hearing on those charges is already...

    Just so you loyal readers might know, I do occasionally think about things other than politics. This time it is Tom Brady football, although I admit I would rather forget about the whole thing. You know the story. Tom Brady, #1 quarterback for the #1 New England Patriots, now accused of having let the pressure out of the footballs he used in the AFC Championship Game against the Indianapolis Colts on January 18, 2015, making them easier to throw and catch. . . especially in cold weather. Brady denies everything, as well she should. He could have won the game...

    It’s been three years since Sybrina Fulton’s son was shot and killed by a vigilante neighbor in Florida. Now, she says, after seeing what’s happened to other young black unarmed men, it’s never been clearer that Trayvon’s skin color led to him being profiled and killed. “It was not about that hoodie, and I need to tell you that,” Fulton told a standing room only crowd in Los Angeles on Wednesday. “It was absolutely about the color of his skin.” Fulton, who became an activist against gun violence after Trayvon Martin’s death in 2012, spoke during a discussion hosted by...

    The radical pro-homosexual activist leader of the United Kingdom’s Green Party announced that she is “open” to legalizing “marriages” between three or more people on the island nation.A staunch supporter of LGBT rights, Australian-born Natalie Bennett made her position on the issue of polygamist marriage loud and clear when answering a question asked by the pro-homosexual Pink News. "As someone living with his two boyfriends in a stable long-term relationship, I would like to know what your stance is on polyamory rights,” a Pink News reader inquired of Bennett. “Is there room for Green support on group civil partnerships or...

    Cecily Strong introduced each of the GOP presidential "hopefuls" with a series of all-too-accurate puns.The Southern Republican Leadership Conference looks way more fun when it happens on “Saturday Night Live.”“SNL” mocked the event in its cold open this week, playing up the gathering of GOP presidential hopefuls as “the hottest event of the year,” complete with dance numbers and a very punny DJ (Cecily Strong). Strong introduced each of the “candidates” with zingers that ranged from a little painful (did Mike Huckabee really turn Arkansas “from a red state to a shred state”?) to, well, funny — and rather accurate....
  • White reporter demands to know how authentically Cuban Ted Cruz is

    The Houston Examiner ^ | May 10, 2015 | Mark Whittington
    Mark Halperin of Bloomberg interviewed Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, a candidate for president of the United States, recently and endeavored to find out how authentically Cuban he is. This line of questioning has not, so far as is known, been directed at any other presidential candidate. Barack Obama’s blackness has not been called into question, nor has Hillary Clinton’s womanhood. Ruben Navarrette, writing on Saturday for the San Jose Mercury News, was appalled, to say the least. Halperin asked Cruz what kind of Cuban food he liked, if he listened to Cuban music and was invited to address Bernie Sanders...

    Apparently only communists were invited After 17 years as a personal bodyguard of Fidel Castro, Juan Rienaldo Sanchez recently claimed in a new book that the Cuban dictator was a major trafficker of illegal drugs into the US for years- and profited handsomely from it. Sound plenty believable to me, North Korea exports meth for hard currency- and El Jefe was close with Columbia's coke-producing communist rebels/terrorists FARC. Other interesting revelations would be that Fidel kept his immediate family a secret -had more kids out of wedlock- and was kind of a lazy slob that 'always slept until 10 or...

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)During a passionate address at historically black Tuskegee University Saturday, Michelle Obama said she refused to let the "sting" of racial bias define her. "Over the years, folks have used plenty of interesting words to describe me. One said I exhibited a little bit of 'uppityism,'" the first lady said. "Cable news charmingly referred to me as 'Obama's baby mamma.' "All of the chatter, the name-calling, the doubting, all of it was just noise," she said. "It did not define me, it didn't change who I was, and most importantly, it couldn't hold me back." Conjuring up the incidents in...

    personal conversation | 10 May 2015 | Me
    I recently had a conversation with a good friend. Active duty O6. Recently completed a major command tour. Now the operations officer for a significant regional command. His words have set with me in a rather heavy way... He said it's not a matter of "if" a 'reset' happens, it's just a matter of when. He believes the military and civil authorities in many places will be divided and that many will be surprised where loyalties actually are found when men are finally faced with a choice of liberty over tyranny. He explained that he honestly believes that leaders of...

    Does Tom Brady have a target on his back because he’s a Republican? Here’s his agent’s analysis of the Wells Report. According to Don Yee, “…omission of key facts and lines of inquiry suggest the investigators reached conclusion first and determined so-called facts later.” You think? Consider this legal analysis the agent makes: the Wells investigators, who he says showed less than stellar knowledge of pro football, buried the report’s significant vulnerabilities in the FOOTNOTES…a key legal device. Additionally, Tom Brady’s full day of interview testimony by four League legal types “virtually was omitted.” But the most trenchant point of...

    (Original title too long: Muslims, Well Trained And Armed, Ambush Police Officers, Murder Five Police Officers, Injure Thirty More Officers, In Well Orchestrated Attack To Purposefully Help Usher In The Ottoman Empire) Well trained and armed Muslims in the Macedonian city of Kumanovo attacked police officers, killing five officers, and injuring thirty officers. The Muslims went into a rampage, burning down multiple homes as well. This was a very well orchestrated and calculated attack that is being done for the purpose of causing so much violent tension that it will lead to instability. This societal friction will be a part...
  • Pamela Geller Is Not "Morally Responsible" for the Terrorist Attack in Texas

    The New Republic ^ | May 7, 2015 | Professor Steven Lubet
    The defense of free expression should become stronger in the face of violent threats, not weaker. Pamela Geller, president of the American Freedom Defense Initiative, is a nasty-hearted Islamophobe. But should she be blamed for the recent armed attack on her cartoon exhibit in Garland, Texas, in which two gunmen were killed and a police officer was wounded? Writing for Bloomberg View, Harvard law professor Noah Feldman opined that she may be “morally culpable,” on the theory that she probably hoped to “provoke violence.” Feldman has erred badly here. Although Feldman begins by condemning the terrorists, he quickly cautions his...

    Map source: U.S. Army Special Operations Command President Barack Obama plans to launch a military operation this summer that will see the special forces which killed Osama bin Laden team up with Walmart to take over Texas. The invasion will also target the Mormon stronghold of Utah and an “insurgent pocket” in California. But the main thrust will be in Texas where 1,200 special forces — Army Green Beret forces to Navy Seals — will try to reclaim the state that voted for Mitt Romney in the 2012 election. As the US focuses on the threat from the Islamic State...
