  • How Trump Has Pretzled the ‘Post-Truth’ Academic Left

    It’s often said that most of what the academic elites call “philosophy” is nothing but some underutilized minds worrying themselves about questions that common-sense folk find obvious. The saying came to mind as I listened recently to some of these folks straining to fit their various theories to the Age of Trump. More precisely, they were double-helixing themselves trying to explain why the amoral, relativist, truth-denying theories they’ve championed for so long are actually good reasons for hating the supposedly amoral, relativist, truth-defying current President. Listening to this theorizing crystallized (at least for this initially reluctant Trump supporter) why President...
  • Holding to biblical sexual morality earns Asbury a rebuke

    One News Now ^ | March 13, 2020 | Michael F. Haverluck
    A private university in Kentucky is the latest Christian school to draw criticism for adhering to biblical sexual ethics. Asbury University – like so many others in Christian academia – is being hard-pressed by the culture to adopt pro-LGBTQ doctrine. Ever since Asbury University reportedly declined to renew the contract of two "LGBTQ-affirming" educators – professor Jon Roller, founder of the school's Worship Arts Program; and assistant professor of music education and voice Jill Campbell – it has been under major scrutiny. "Jon was told in his tenure meeting, 'You do not belong here,'" worship leader Derek Chilton – who...

    Rep. Matt Gaetz said he will be working to get an investigation going into House Speaker Nancy Pelosi because she tore up a copy of President Trump’s State of the Union address. “I will be filing charges against Nancy Pelosi in the House Ethics Committee,” the Florida Republican told Laura Ingraham on Fox News. “She disgraced the House of Representatives, she embarrassed our country, and she destroyed official records." “The law does not allow the speaker of the House to destroy the records of the House, and the rules of the House do not permit some little temper tantrum just...

    Christian Animal Ethics reports Chick-fil-A "chickens are bred to grow so large, so quickly, that many of them suffer crippling leg deformities. Because their breasts grow abnormally large while their skeletons and other organs lag behind, their legs often break under the weight of their own bodies." Chickens at Chick-fil-A "factory farm suppliers don’t see the light of day or receive any exercise. Most have trouble breathing in the overcrowded, filthy conditions while many others suffer heart failure and chronic pain." To keep Chick-fil-A "chickens eating and growing as much as possible, their sleep is restricted by keeping the interior...

    Full title: Psychiatrists Organize Campaign to Declare Trump 'Dangerous' as Part of Impeachment Congressional RecordPsychiatrists with the World Mental Health Coalition are soliciting signatures in a campaign to support the impeachment of President Donald Trump predicated on claims that he is mentally unstable. This campaign arguably violates the ethics of psychiatry, mimicking a historic attack on another Republican presidential candidate who successfully sued for libel after psychiatrists declared him unfit for the presidency. In an email forwarded to PJ Media, three psychiatrists with the coalition ask other psychiatrists to sign on to a petition to the House of Representatives Judiciary...

Rashida Tlaib , in which Tlaib urgently requests money from her congressional campaign to defray personal expenses.

    Nancy Pelosi targeted in ethics complaint filed by 40 conservative groups A coalition of conservative groups have filed an ethics complaint against House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D.-Calif., alleging that she has “hypocritically usurped” the authority of the president and “weaponized” impeachment proceedings. “In launching her 'official' impeachment inquiry without benefit of a vote of the full House of Representatives and without indicating anything remotely qualifying as 'treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors' that is the subject of the inquiry, Speaker Pelosi has weaponized impeachment,” reads the complaint, led by Tea Party Patriots Action's Jenny Beth Martin and...

    If you’re interested in eye-popping, attention-grabbing animals, look no further than hybrids. While hybrid animals like this wolf-dog are a fascinating cross of two separate species, they also reveal a host of ethical problems. < . . . > To create this “bear-dog” hybrid—who didn’t actually have any bear DNA—Russian breeders allegedly used a Chow Chow and some other sort of long-nosed stray. As animal shelter volunteer Polina Kefer put it, “This dog is a ‘badly-made’ Chow Chow.” While the four-year-old pooch might’ve looked cool to some, mentally, he was a mess. < . . . > Unfortunately, all of...

    Adam Schiff’s 2020 challenger filed an ethics complaint against the California congressman for his willingness to accept dirt on President Trump in an international prank call. Schiff’s Republican challenger, Jon Hollis, filed the complaint with the Office of Congressional Ethics, citing his competitor's willingness to accept “compromising material” against the president from international agents as the basis of the complaint. At the time, Schiff believed he was speaking to a Ukrainian politician, but the call ended up being a bogus prank, which was recorded and posted online. In the call, Schiff discussed obtaining nude photographs of Trump from the foreign...

  • The American People’s Moral Pulse Is Stronger Than American Elites’

    10/09/2019 2:10:56 PM PDT · by Liberty7732 · 1 replies
    The American people have a stronger moral pulse than America’s leaders in government, business, media, universities and entertainment — often clumped together as “elites.” And I think this is true in a bi-partisan nature if talking politics: Basic registered Democrats have a stronger moral pulse than Democratic leaders and ditto for basic registered Republicans and Republican leaders. Exceptions abound, but in a broad sense, this seems to be true and demonstrated regularly. Let’s take the latest item in the news that adds to the evidence pile. The NBA’s craven, knee-jerk reaction to the Houston Rockets’ General Manager tweeting out his...
