    The founder of the conservative Proud Boys group has been denied a visa to Australia after he planned a speaking tour of the country that was slated to start on Dec. 5. Gavin McInnes, a Canadian writer and comedian who founded the Proud Boys and co-founded Vice Media and Vice magazine, planned a speaking tour called “The Deplorables” across the country, but may not be able to conduct it after Australia’s Home Affairs Department determined he failed the character test to get a visa. Section 501 of the Migration Act states that visa applicants fail the character test if the...

    A federal subsidy program that lets foreign students and their U.S. employers avoid payroll taxes robs Social Security and Medicare $2 billion a year, money American workers pay into the trust funds for the elderly, according to a new report. The little reported on Optional Practical Training program also effectively sets aside 240,000 high-income jobs for immigrants, according to the Center for Immigration Studies, which has been detailing taxpayer-funded subsidy programs for immigrants that also benefit U.S. firms. “Doling out the subsidies is the Optional Practical Training (OPT) program; the subsidy takes the form of exempting both the foreign worker...

    On October 16, I filed a Title IX sex discrimination complaint against administrators at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington where I have been teaching for the last twenty-six years. Readers will also recall that it is the same institution I successfully sued on First Amendment grounds back in 2014. The facts leading to the present controversy are briefly recapitulated below. Two females, one a student at UNCW, the other an alumna at UNCW, paid a visit to the Women’s Resource Center (WRC) located in Bear Hall on the UNCW campus. The student is a member of a campus...

    An ex-Marine veteran was banned from Walt Disney World and all its parks after waving a "Trump 2020" banner while riding Splash Mountain. Interestingly enough, Disney apparently thought he was such a threat that they used 40 employees to escort out the 49-year-old veteran. “I held up the sign for two seconds so I can take a picture,” Dion Cini told the New York Post. “You’re allowed to hold up signs on Disney rides — cameras, cellphones, and other stuff like that. People have been doing it for years. They just kicked me out ’cause of the context of the...

    The Women’s Beer Forum, hosted by Los Angeles-based Eagle Rock Brewery, is the latest victim in a long line of so-called “gender-based discrimination” lawsuits initiated by various men’s rights activists (MRAs), who are lashing out events and promotions designed for women. According to its GoFundMe page, the monthly meetup—started by Eagle Rock co-founder Ting Su—was created in March 2011 after Su witnessed women get “pigeonholed by their male counterparts into drinking only specific beer styles. And when women asked me (a fellow woman behind the bar) about beer-style recommendations," Su continues, "some men would interject by sharing what they thought...

    The plaintiffs — all field organizers — allege that while the campaign has hired African-American and Latino workers, “the vast majority are herded into race-specific positions where they are expected to interact with the public, offered no meaningful chance for advancement, and receive less favorable treatment than their white counterparts who engage with, as the campaign sees it, a more desirable constituency.” “At all times relevant, the J.B. Prtizker for Governor campaign has been cesspool of racial discrimination and harassment,” according to the suit. The campaign also released information designed to poke holes in some of the allegations.

    “JB Pritzker for Governor has a serious race problem,” the lawsuit said. “Contrary to the candidate’s many public avowals, rather than working to meaningfully address discrimination, racism is perpetuated, condoned and ratified by the Campaign.” The lawsuit, filed Oct. 16 in Chicago federal court, specifically alleges the black and Latino campaign workers are packed into majority minority neighborhoods, often in unsafe working conditions, and are denied benefits and advancement opportunities available to their white colleagues. Named plaintiffs in the action include Maxwell Little, Jason Benton, Jelani Coleman, Celia Colon, Kasmine Calhoun, Erica Kimble, Nathaniel Madison, Tiffany Madison, James B. Tinsley...

    The “Gosnell” film producers hit another obstacle this week when the social media giant Facebook refused to run their ads. “Gosnell: The Trial of America’s Biggest Serial Killer” will be in theaters beginning Oct. 12. Under-reported from the start, the film follows the true story of Kermit Gosnell, a Philadelphia abortionist who murdered newborn babies and committed numerous other crimes inside his “house of horrors” abortion facility. It stars Dean Cain (“Lois & Clark”) and is directed by Nick Searcy (“The Shape of Water,” “Justified”). Producers Phelim McAleer and Ann McElhinney have faced roadblocks from the start of their project,...

    California has become the first state in the US to require publicly traded companies to include women on their board of directors. Governor Jerry Brown signed the new measure – which necessitates at least one female director on the board of each California-based public operation by the end of 2019 – into law on Sunday. Firms will need up to three female directors by the end of 2021, depending on the size of their boards. Hundreds of companies will be affected by the law and those who violate it can be fined $100,000 (£76,600) for a first violation and $300,000...

    n the great span of world history, nearly all change and progress has come from an under-served and out-of-power group pushing, prodding, and pounding on those who hold power to expand it to include a wider and more diverse population. Unfortunately, nearly every time, those in power don’t have the foresight or humility to expand the circles without this external threat. As a white male Christian in America, I am part of a dwindling subset that has held the levers of power politically and economically in nearly every field for the entire history of the United States. And though my...

    Gov. Jerry Brown on Sunday signed a bill making California the first state to require public companies to have at least one woman on their board of directors to advance gender equality and help break the corporate glass ceiling. The bill, SB 826, by Sens. Hannah-Beth Jackson, D-Santa Barbara, and Toni Atkins, D-San Diego, was designed to combat bias against experienced, qualified female employees in the workplace. “Yet another glass ceiling is shattered, and women will finally have a seat at the table in corporate board rooms,” Jackson said Sunday on Twitter as she thanked the governor for signing the...

    Women cheer as Sweden's man-free music festival kicks off Matilda Hagerman laughs with her friends as she queues at a man-free music festival, which kicked off in Sweden on Friday in protest against a wave of sexual assaults at festivals in recent years. "This festival was necessary because of everything that happened during festivals last year," says the 27-year-old student with long pink hair and purple lipstick as her friends nod in agreement. Held in Sweden's second-largest city of Gothenburg, the two-day Statement Festival, forbids men but not transgender people. It was announced last year after police received four rape...
