    A “green” activist who was a pioneering lawyer for gay and transgender rights — including in the notorious “Boys Don’t Cry” rape murder case — committed suicide by setting himself on fire Saturday morning in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park in a grisly act of protest against the ecological destruction of the Earth. David Buckel, 60, left behind a charred corpse and a typed suicide note that said he was burning himself to death using “fossil fuel” to reflect how mankind was likewise killing itself, police sources said.
  • The American Dunning-Kruger Epidemic (Or Why Ignorant People Are So Sure They’re Right)

    The Organic Prepper ^ | April 10, 2018 | Daisy Luther
    It’s time to address an epidemic in the United States. It’s one that could be deadly, particularly to liberty. It’s an epidemic of Dunning-Kruger. It’s why ignorant people are so certain that they’re right. What’s that, you ask? The Dunning Kruger effect is a cognitive bias in which individuals, who are unskilled at a particular task, believe themselves to possess above-average ability in performing the task. On the other hand, as individuals become more skilled in a particular task, they may mistakenly believe that they possess below-average ability in performing those tasks because they may assume that all others possess...

    Yes, at first glance the title of this piece appears to be provocative (indeed, some probably stopped there and refused to continue reading). However, it is provocative only under two conditions. First, it is provocative when viewed within the frame of reference to which we’ve become conditioned – that is, that Progressivism and religion are examined as totally separate and distinct topics, a conceptual version of the so-called “separation of church and state” if you will. Second, it is provocative if this writer had deliberately crafted it just to get a reaction..... More at Link:
  • Canada's love affair with Justin Trudeau may be over as his polls 'suddenly' drop for the first [tr]

    Justin Trudeau has seen his lead in the polls fall with his disastrous trip to India and focus on gender being blamed. According to CBC's poll tracker the opposition Conservative Party is now in the lead with 37.7 percent of voting intentions ahead of Trudeau's Liberals on 33.7 percent and the left-wing New Democratic Party on 18.5 percent. The 46-year-old Trudeau's good looks, progressive policies and youthful quirkiness, compared to traditional politicians, saw him ride high in the polls after his unexpected win in the 2015 election.

    Saturday's anti-gun marchers in the March for Our Lives rallies would have made good Nazis, and good communists, and good mindless automatons behind any tyrannical leader. Their gullibility was on full display I am a firm believer that there is always more than what you see on the surface. I also believe that the road to hell is paved with the best of intentions. Sometimes the evil is in the motive behind what is going on, and sometimes the evil was not in the motive but the path something takes once it takes hold. What we must realize is that...

    Why has Justin Trudeau lost his big popularity advantage? Because of the gender gap. Men aren’t sticking with the Liberal program. The Prime Minister who trumpets that he is a feminist and who appointed a gender-balanced cabinet still leads a party that’s most popular among women, according to regular polling by Nanos Research.

    A former aide to Hillary Clinton who is now a California gubernatorial candidate demanded this week that her rival step down as lieutenant governor because of an affair he had over a decade ago. Gubernatorial front-runner Gavin Newsom, a Democrat who served as mayor of San Francisco more than a decade ago, had an affair with one of his City Hall aides, who was also married to his campaign manager at the time, The Sacramento Bee reported. Newsom’s rival, Democrat Amanda Renteria, declared in a Facebook post Thursday that the affair makes him unfit for office.

    Earlier this week, one of the Obama administration’s top diplomats, Samantha Power, claimed that Russia was responsible for the stunning Italian election outcome, hinting that anyone who dares to point out or discuss the social and economic woes of Europe’s grand experiment – and certainly Europe’s “refugee problem”- is a Russian operative. In that case, Deutsche Bank must be the Frankfurt office of the KGB, because in an overnight note, the German lender reported something especially troubling for Europe’s future and viability: populism has risen to the highest level since World War II. Commenting on the recent Italian election, Deutsche...

    "This is no little, trivial thing. Even the left loves never stops reminding us, 'words matter.' The problem is that we've bought into the nomenclature of the left, and our doing so has shifted the conversation dramatically in their favor and kept us from focusing and thinking and seeing clearly, and it prevents us from solving our problems – in this case, what seems to be the growth of mass murders. This is destructive because it focuses our minds on the 'shooting' – i.e., the use of guns and not the crime of mass murder. "Think of it this way:...

    Does going to college make students into political liberals? Conservative activists have claimed that universities brainwash students and indoctrinate them into believing a liberal ideology. The line of reasoning goes like this: Liberal college professors tell students “what to think,” and “what to think” is that conservatives and their positions are to be dismissed. A state lawmaker in Iowa has even suggested universities consider political affiliation in connection with hiring practices in order to balance out the distribution of political representation on the faculty. Conservatives on campus feel outnumbered, given that about 60 percent of faculty identify as politically liberal....

    Something needs to change,' says Milwaukee native who turned in rifle to authorities A Milwaukee native said enough is enough and turned his semi-automatic rifle into the Broward County Sheriff's Office. Ben Dickmann grew up in Milwaukee, but moved to south Florida years ago. He shared a Facebook post of a sheriff's deputy taking possession of his AR-FiveSeven, which is similar to the AR-15 that was used in the high school shooting in Parkland, Florida. Dickmann said only law enforcement should have guns that powerful. "Something needs to change, and it needs to change now," Dickmann said. "People have been...

But a couple of his first responder friends in the fire company were attending the school which was the latest target of a mass shooting in Broward County where 17 children were needlessly murdered. His friends’ children were not shot but some of their friends were. Yet none of us has to know anyone who was so slain to grieve for these lost children. I didn’t know...

    The women of ABC News' “The View” took a shot a Vice President Mike Pence’s Christian faith on Tuesday, mocking the former governor of Indiana for talking to Jesus and even calling it a “mental illness.” It all started when they played a clip from “Celebrity Big Brother,” in which former White House staffer Omarosa Manigault Newman discussed the vice president. “As bad as you think Trump is, you would be worried about Pence… everyone that is wishing for impeachment might want to reconsider their life,” she said in the clip. “I am Christian, I love Jesus, but he thinks...
