    The Outline ^ | January 23, 2018 | Gaby Del Valle
    For the first time since 2010, an American man has made to the Australian Open quarterfinals. The aptly named Tennys Sandgren is the last American standing in the men’s singles division, an achievement that is ever-so-slightly tainted by the fact that he’s probably a huge Trump supporter — and not the craven “Trump is terrible but I voted for him anyway because I am a Republican” kind, but the out-and-proud MAGA hat-wearing, “Pizzagate is real” kind. At a post-match press conference on Monday, a reporter asked Sandgren about his Twitter account, where he’s retweeted and engaged in conversation with prominent...
  • DC Gym Owner Upset That She Took Ivanka’s Money

    [solidcore] is the name of a gym in Washington, DC. Which instantly makes it both my least favorite and second-least favorite place in the world. The unnecessary punctuation in the name is also annoying. As is the fact that the founder of the gym, Anne Mahlum, can’t just take Ivanka Trump’s money and shut up about it.Here’s what she just posted to Facebook, because of course you have to post these things to Facebook:Mahlum doesn’t specify which “rights” are being “threatened” by Ivanka’s father, because that doesn’t matter. Facts don’t matter, only feelings do. And now that Mahlum knows that...

    “Clueless” actress Stacey Dash is joining Fox News as a paid cultural commentator, but the move isn’t going over well with black liberals who think she is being hijacked as the network’s “token” black woman. [snip] “And how is Stacey Dash about to ‘contribute’ to Fox News like straight-to-DVD black cinema aint pay some of them bills…” wrote @eeshurheartout. “Congrats on your new token!” wrote @mandyplz “She truly thinks she’s a white woman,” wrote @ChampagneNii. “Now every self hating black has a show on Fox News,” wrote @funkdigital.

    More than 2,000 worshipers filled St. Mary's Cathedral on Thursday to see Salvatore Cordileone assume his role as Roman Catholic archbishop of San Francisco, as several dozen protesters angered by his leading role in the fight against same-sex marriage demonstrated outside. "I know in my own life God has always had a way of putting me in my place - little and sometimes big ways of reminding me of my need to depend upon him and to attend to the work of my own rebuilding from within," Cordileone told the congregation. "I would say, though, that with this latest episode...

    In December 2007, we alerted readers to a new feature called Setting The Record Straight. The section (which can be accessed by passing one's mouse over the "About Campus Watch" category in the left-hand tab and clicking on "Setting The Record Straight") is designed to correct false accusations made against Campus Watch. As we explained at the time: Campus Watch readers are no doubt familiar with the numerous smears, false allegations, and hysterical accusations leveled against us by our opponents. Frequent charges of "McCarthyism," "censorship," "silencing professors," and "threats to academic freedom" are hurled at Campus Watch by those...

    Here's a lovely quote you may wish to put in your scrapbook: "For 5,000 years, every culture and every religion - not just Christianity - has defined marriage as a contract between men and women. There is no reason to change the universal, historical definition of marriage to appease 2 percent of our population. This is one issue that both Democrats and Republicans can agree on. Both Barack Obama and John McCain have publicly opposed the redefinition of marriage to include so-called 'gay marriage.' Even some gay leaders, like Al Rantel of KABC, oppose watering down the definition of marriage....

    San Francisco Chronicle ^ | 12/23/8 | Debra J. Saunders
    Gay civil rights groups - the Human Rights Campaign and the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force - are calling on President-elect Barack Obama to yank his invitation to Saddleback Church pastor Rick Warren to give the inaugural prayer on Jan. 20. They demand tolerance from others, but won't spare any for those with whom they disagree. Unless, of course, that person is Obama, who, like Warren, opposes same-sex marriage. Then, they get real ecumenical. Not to mention, very forgetful."I believe that marriage is the union between a man and a woman. Now, for me as a Christian - for...

    For the past three days, Michele and Bob Sundstrom and their five children have been painfully aware of the SUV parked in front of their house with a message painted on the rear windshield that says: "Bigots live here." Their neighborhood near Blossom Hill Road has suddenly become the center of a political tempest over Proposition 8, the ballot measure to ban same-sex marriage. The Sundstroms said they were stunned on Sunday afternoon when two women parked a Chevrolet Suburban in front of their home and began painting slogans on the SUV to counter the family's huge "Protect Marriage Yes...

    Just over a month into the fall semester, students at American River College, the state's largest community college, got a welcome lesson in the importance of elections. Though the college has more than 37,000 students, only 300 students voted in the last Student Council election. Now the larger student body has found reason to pay attention. The Student Council has drawn statewide attention with its 8-3 vote on Tuesday to endorse Proposition 8. That's the constitutional amendment initiative on the Nov. 4 statewide ballot titled "Eliminates Right of Same-Sex Couples to Marry." Students who oppose the ballot initiative have collected...

    Ever since the surprise announcement of Alaska Governor, Sarah Palin, as Senator McCain’s choice for his Vice Presidential running mate, we have noticed a meltdown from the left, particularly so-called feminists. This could not be more evident than in shown in the Chicago Sun Times op-ed by Black female columnist Mary Mitchell’s Palin should be laughingstock to all feminists article published September 13, 2008. How sexist for this so-called feminist to begin her hit piece with, “ Sarah Palin makes me sick. I hate that she was able to steal Barack Obama's mojo just by showing up wearing rimless glasses...

    Hollywood beauty Scarlett Johansson has fueled reports she will star in the New York City production of South Pacific, after declaring her love for the musical during an interview. Last month, the New York Post reported Johansson was in talks to play US Navy nurse Nellie Forbush in a revival of the musical at the Lincoln Center, which is scheduled to open in January 2008. In an interview with the latest UK edition of Glamour magazine, Johansson admits she's a huge fan of the Rodgers And Hammerstein show, but she has a problem with the heroine's surname, which shares a...
  • Carolers Told To Stop Singing At Event

    "While an Olympic-medal-winning ice skater smiled and listened to Christmas carols, a Riverside city staff member silenced the singing group because she was afraid the skater would be offended because she is Jewish." "The choir had barely launched into "God Rest Ye Merry Gentleman" when a police officer and Michelle Baldwin, a city special-events employee, approached choir director Staci Della-Rocco and told her to stop the choir's performance." "Amber Eyerly, with the New York-based PR firm that helped promote the event, said that Cohen didn't make the request." "I felt so bad for my kids and that whole situation," Della-Rocco...

    University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh police are investigating a death threat against the school’s College Republicans chair. Nate Nelson received an e-mailed death threat last month, the day after attending a political rally on campus. The e-mail threatened both Nelson’s life and the life of his wife, Kelly. The threat came after Nelson had notified police that organizers of the rally were in violation of meeting codes established on campus. “My initial reaction [to the threat] was shock,” Nelson told The Badger Herald. “I didn’t think people would go that far.” According to Nelson, the threat said, “Quit with your political bullshit...

    SAN FRANCISCANS may think of their town as a haven for tolerance, but once again, S.F. supervisors are showing the rest of America how intolerant The Special City can be. Forget a flower in your hair. If you come to San Francisco, be sure to wear a muzzle on your brain. Criticize a supervisor, and some supes will do their utmost to get you fired. Last week, KGO radio talk-show host Pete Wilson made some comments about a child born to Supervisor Bevan Dufty, who is gay, and Rebecca Goldfader, who is a lesbian. As Wilson put it, a baby...

    Letter: Teach your children well Thursday, July 27, 2006 David Parker is right - he should be allowed to "direct the moral upbringing of his children." As a parent, educator, and citizen, I am glad to see any parent take responsibility for his children's upbringing. I know of no one who would deny him this right. Unfortunately for Parker, he has chosen to instill in his children a sense of bigotry that that the majority in his community condemn. While it is a sad reality that in parts of the country people are judged by their race, gender, age, and...

  • Media has Reagan Myopia (MEGA BARF alert!)

    Media has Reagan myopia ANTONIA ZERBISIAS On Monday, only one "Canadian" network provided extended live coverage of former U.S. president Ronald Reagan's casket being moved into the Presidential Library in Simi Valley, California. That network, deprived of its usual afternoon delivery of U.S. soaps, was, of course, CanWest's Global. On the same day, only one of the papers which thump on my doorstep completely ignored Sunday's moving D-Day 60th anniversary commemoration on its front page. While both the Globe and Mail and the Star published a poignant photo of a Canadian vet wiping away a tear on the beach where...

    College campuses are supposed to be places of free expression, and this is generally the case at Yale. Unless, of course, you wish to criticize a leftist point of view. For leftists hurl invectives so fast that the unsuspecting critic will have no idea what just hit him. Recent events on campus have demonstrated a disturbing tendency among Yale's left to ignore facts, logic and civility in the service of unswerving ideological ends. Start with the CampusTruth advertisements that appeared in these very pages, so provocative they elicited a letter on Monday signed by a smorgasbord of "concerned" campus organizations...

    Every year the attacks on Christmas by intolerant leftists seem to be more ludicrous and start earlier. But at least some teachers are denouncing the anti-Christian bias of New York City's failed government school monopoly. "Christian educators are weary and outraged at this latest affront to freedom of expression," said Finn Laursen, executive director of Christian Educators Association International, a 50-year-old national association of teachers from government and private schools. The organization stated today in a news release: Jewish and Islamic symbols are allowed, the district says, "because they have a secular dimension, but the Christian symbols are purely...
