    President and his family, as well as members of his administration, are truly in danger as the Post Trump Stress Disorder epidemic intensifies and spreads across the country, with no signs of stopping any time soon Each day, it gets worse across the world, but especially in our country. The epidemic of PTSD (Post Trump Stress Disorder) is spreading quickly across the American leftist population. It is easily apparent in a media that is 95% anti-Trump and includes liberal reporters who masquerade as objective journalists. Among the stricken are so-called analysts and who shout offensive questions at the White House...

    In this deeply liberal California city, frustration over crises around housing and homelessness is bringing some on the left a little further right. At an upscale sushi restaurant, a few dozen members of the San Francisco Republican Party gathered on Tuesday night to watch the election results. Most did not want to talk about state or national politics, they wanted to keep it local.

    Only on the left would we see the presidential pardon of a non-violent drug offender, a cause that up until now has been a Sorosian shibboleth, greeted with grumbles. Why? Because President Trump took the initiative to get it done, hearing of the 63 year-old grandmother's plight from big-name celebrity Kim Kardashian. The left loathes Trump more than they value that woman and the cause she represents, so a good deed suddenly becomes a bad deed. Here's how the left and its media minions took it, starting with the Guardian: On Wednesday, Trump commuted the sentence of Alice Johnson,...

    Hollywood’s left-leaning politics has made the industry a bête noire among conservatives for decades. But Netflix has made some recent moves that have especially rankled Republicans. In March, the streamer named Susan Rice — former national security adviser to President Obama, and a conservative target in the Bengazi scandal — to its board of directors. Last month, Netflix officially announced an exclusive multiyear deal with the Obamas’ Higher Ground Productions for original programming. And last week, it premiered “The Break with Michelle Wolf” — a late-night-style show from the comedian who delivered a blistering takedown of the Trump administration and...

    The second comes from The Atlantic’s Emma Green. Detailing the findings of a survey conducted by her magazine and the Public Religion Research Institute, she notes that 61 percent of white working-class men view college as a “risky gamble.” Green’s report contained this explanation: “The enduring narrative of the American dream is that if you study and get a college education and work hard, you can get ahead,” said Robert P. Jones, the CEO of PRRI. “The survey shows that many white working-class Amer­icans, especially men, no longer see that path available to them. . . . It is this sense of economic fatalism,...

    When you are a writer who learns a beloved author has a dark side, you experience waves of disillusionment. When you teach that author’s work, you feel an additional stab of concern: What about my syllabus? A professor’s syllabus, often set months in advance to facilitate book orders, is a carefully constructed course plan. We have favorite exercises or close readings that are revelatory for students, and joyful for us. As intellectual property goes, a great syllabus is a gold mine. Or perhaps a better metaphor would be a Jenga Game. Take away too many supporting pieces and the whole...

    Starbucks Executive Chairman Howard Schultz said Thursday that Starbucks' bathrooms will now be open to everyone, whether paying customers or not. "We don't want to become a public bathroom, but we're going to make the right decision 100 percent of the time and give people the key," Schultz said at the Atlantic Council in Washington, D.C. "Because we don't want anyone at Starbucks to feel as if we are not giving access to you to the bathroom because you are 'less than.' We want you to be 'more than.' "

    New York magazine published a piece today arguing that there’s really no need to hire conservatives at prestigious outlets anymore. His argument, which is a response to the recent firing of Kevin Williamson by the Atlantic, is premised on the idea that conservative ideas have become irrelevant in an age of Trumpian populism:

    Keziah Daum, an 18-year-old from Utah in the United States, who has no Chinese roots, was accused of “cultural appropriation” after posting photographs on Twitter that featured her in a traditional Chinese qipao, or cheongsam. The dress symbolised a silent protest to promote gender equality after the fall of the dynasties and the beginning of the republican period in the early 1900s, and was worn during the 1919 reformist May Fourth Movement.
  • Fear of the Left: The Most Powerful Force in America Today (Conservatives keep quiet)

    National Review ^ | 04/30/2018 | Dennis Prager
    Conservatives are keeping quiet about their beliefs. The dominant force in America and many other Western countries today is fear of the Left.This is a result of the fact that the most dynamic religion of the past 100 years has been neither Christianity nor Islam. It has been leftism. Whoever does not recognize this does not understand the contemporary world. Leftism — in its incarnations, such as Marxism, Communism, and socialism; expressed through egalitarianism, environmentalism, and feminism; in its denigration of capitalism and Western civilization, especially America and Israel; in its supplanting of Christianity and Judaism; through its influence on...

    The new chief of New York City's public schools got a lot of attention over a tweet he shared on Friday that referred to some parents in the school district as 'wealthy white Manhattan parents.' Chancellor Richard Carranza tweeted a story from the rawstory.com web page, which posted to his account with the following auto-generated text: 'WATCH: Wealthy white Manhattan parents angrily rant against plan to bring more black kids to their schools.' Carranza told NBC's News 4, 'They weren't my words,' despite the fact that the tweet sparked a lot of engagement over the headline, which was mostly in...

    A New York City proposal to diversify middle schools on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, by setting aside seats for children with low test scores, is facing stiff resistance from parents worried their high-achieving children might lose access to the popular public schools. The Department of Education has proposed one scenario in which most middle schools in District 3 would give priority, for up to 25% of their seats, to applicants who had fourth-grade scores below grade level on state tests of reading and math. ...

    Conservative writer and provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos was forced to leave a bar in New York City Saturday after a crowd chanted “Nazi scum get out.” Videos show the crowd repeatedly chanting the phrase while the former Breitbart News editor is seen standing in the corner of the bar. He left the bar soon afterward. The videos identify the chanting group as members of the Democratic Socialists of America. Yiannopoulos later described the incident with a lengthy post on Instagram. “I was just shoved and screamed at by a big group in a pub in Manhattan and forced out of the...

    Three years ago, Starbucks was widely ridiculed for trying to start a national conversation on race relations by asking its employees to write the words "Race Together" on coffee cups. The initiative, though it backfired, was in line with the company's longstanding effort to project a progressive and inclusive image. The company is now through the looking glass, trying to tamp down a racially charged uproar over the arrest of two black men at one of its stores in Philadelphia. How could Starbucks, which once urged its employees to start conversations about race with customers, now be under fire for...

    During Sunday’s broadcast of “The Cats Roundtable” on New York AM 970 radio, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker weighed in on a liberal judge defeating a conservative in a Wisconsin Supreme Court election. He said that conservatives needed to “wake up” because the left was “angry and their rhetoric is filled with hate.” “We had a bit of a wake-up call on Tuesday. On Tuesday in our state, Wisconsin, had the elections for Supreme Court justices. And for the first time in about 20 years in an open seat for the Supreme Court, a liberal judge defeated a conservative judge,” Walker...

    Texas Democratic Senate candidate Rep. Beto O'Rourke said Tuesday that President Donald Trump and Sen. Ted Cruz are inciting fear in Texas voters and called that "bullshit." O'Rourke got to that word after dodging a question on the progress of a Texas ports bill he said he's working on with Sen. John Cornyn (R., Texas). "So why hasn't it happened, Congressman?" interviewer and Tribune CEO Evan Smith asked. Instead of answering, O'Rourke said, "Let me tell you what the president and our junior senator are doing right now." "They want you to be afraid of Mexicans. When they call them...
