    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) blasted Fox News host Tucker Carlson as a “white supremacist sympathizer” and his show as an “hour-long production of unmitigated racism” after a Tuesday night segment on her New York district. In the segment, Carlson showed video footage of litter in New York’s 14th district, the district Ocasio-Cortez represents, and asked City Journal Associate Editor Seth Barron about the presence of garbage if the lawmaker claims “to care about the environment.” Barron responded that “part of the reason is because her district is actually one of the least American districts in the country, and by that,...

    The battle over the rights of “transgender” and “cisgender” people continues to escalate in one of the most influential arenas: our nation’s schools. The Chicago Tribune reported this month that after a four-year battle, a school board in Palatine, Illinois, has granted transgender students “unrestricted access to locker rooms based on gender identity.” Just a few days later, CBS News Minnesota reported a mother had sued her local school district, claiming that it discriminated against her child for being transgender. These are just two of the most recent stories showing just how prevalent the transgender debate in schools has become....

    One in four children in Germany suffers from mental illness, a new study of patient data from German health insurance company DAK released Thursday revealed. The survey of child and teenager mental health was based on data collected from 800,000 children insured by DAK in 2016 and 2017. The data indicated that 24% of children display psychological anomalies. Just under 2% of children between the ages of 10 and 17 is diagnosed with depression and 2.2% with an anxiety disorder. According to DAK, extrapolating their patient data onto Germany’s total population of 10- to 17-year-olds would mean a total of...

    ( – In a new report, the Center for Military Readiness says that 84% of women fail the New Army Combat Fitness Test and that “all military officials should drop the ‘gender diversity’ agenda and put mission readiness and ‘combat lethality’ first.” “It makes no sense for recruiters to devote more time and money recruiting ‘gender diverse’ trainees who are more likely to be injured, less likely to want infantry assignments, and less likely to remain through basic training or physically-demanding combat arms assignments for twenty years or more,” states the CMR report . On the other side of the...

    According to YouTube, a doctor giving her medical opinion on transgender issues is too dangerous for anyone to watch. When the Heritage Foundation's news outlet, The Daily Signal, published an interview with Dr. Michelle Cretella, a pediatrician and executive director of the American College of Pediatricians, YouTube censored it for "hate speech." The social media platform singled out this particular sentence: "See, if you want to cut off a leg or an arm, you’re mentally ill, but if you want to cut off healthy breasts or a pen*s, you’re transgender," Cretella said. In the video, first published in 2017, Cretella...
  • CBS News Parrots Idea That ‘People Who Menstruate’ Aren’t ‘Always’ Female

    Talk about putting the “men” in menstruation! On Tuesday it was announced that feminine hygiene product brand Always would be removing the Venus female symbol from its packaging. CBS News reported, “The announcement follows pleas from LGBTQ activists to make the labeling more inclusive of transgender and non-binary customers.” Because apparently having feminine products coded as feminine is offensive and exclusionary. According to CBS News, “LGBTQ activists and allies have been publicly asking P&G [Procter & Gamble] to redesign the packaging to be more gender-neutral. They argued that using the female symbol is exclusive because not all women menstruate, and...

    Everyone wants to stop dangerous people from getting guns. The hot new policy option before this committee is Red Flag laws, which take away the guns of people deemed dangerous to themselves or others. But there is a much more effective alternative already in place. They are known as Baker Act statutes (Pennsylvania’s is called the “Mental Health Procedures Act”), and have been around since the early 1970s. They allow police, doctors and family members to have someone typically held in most states for a 72-hour mental health examination based upon a simple reasonableness test – little more than a...

    The continuing exodus of healthcare providers out of pain management is especially obnoxious in light of the fact that no less an authority than the American Medical Association has repudiated the central logic of the 2016 CDC Guidelines, used widely as an excuse for restricting patient access. We must also recognize that America’s opioid and suicide crises are much larger than just prescribing or even street drugs. The factors which cause people to be increasingly vulnerable to addiction and suicide are largely socio-economic.

    Lincoln "told Me that he felt like Committing Suicide often," remembered Mentor Graham, a schoolteacher... Abraham Lincoln fought clinical depression all his life, and if he were alive today, his condition would be treated as a "character issue"—that is, as a political liability. His condition was indeed a character issue: it gave him the tools to save the nation. With Lincoln we have a man whose depression spurred him, painfully, to examine the core of his soul; whose hard work to stay alive helped him develop crucial skills and capacities, even as his depression lingered hauntingly; and whose inimitable character...

    Gender-neutral toilets in schools have left girls feeling unsafe and even put their health at risk, parents and teachers have warned. Girls who are menstruating are so anxious about sharing facilities with boys that some are staying at home for fear of being made to feel 'period shame'. With a growing number of both primary and secondary schools installing unisex toilets, some girls are risking infections by refusing to urinate all day. Others are so fearful they have stopped drinking liquids at school.

    Police were warned that the gunman who killed seven people and wounded 25 in Texas last month was planning an attack eight years ago, according to newly revealed police reports. Seth Ator’s mother reported to cops in February 2011 that her son was refusing to take his mental health medication and had threatened to kill himself in a shootout with police, CNN reported. The worried mom shared a recording with cops, in which Ator declared “911 will bow down before me.” When officers in Amarillo, Texas, showed up to her home in 2011, they found what they interpreted as preparations...

    Former Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson has called 16-year-old eco activist Greta Thunberg a ‘spoilt brat’ after she told the United Nations they had ruined her childhood with climate change. Speaking at the United nations on Monday Greta broke down in tears while furiously scolding international delegates for not taking responsibility for fixing the planet's warming climate. 'I shouldn't be up here. I should be back in school on the other side of the ocean. Yet you all come to us for hope. How dare you. You have stolen my dreams and my childhood with your empty words,' the Swedish...

    Political scientists have long known that political involvement exacts costs but they have typically defined these costs in relatively narrow, largely economic terms. Though anecdotal evidence suggests that the costs of politics may in fact extend beyond economics to frayed personal relationships, compromised emotional stability, and even physical problems, no systematic evidence on these broader costs exists. We construct and validate batteries of survey items that delineate the physical, social, and emotional costs of political engagement and administer these items to a demographically representative sample of U.S. adults. The results suggest that a large number of Americans (read Liberals) believe...

    Scoldilocks, Or the Story of Greta Thunberg A pair of Scandinavian leftists pimp out their Asperger’s-suffering daughter to push global warming, and chaos ensues. Monday was the culmination of a year’s worth of programmatic, propagandistic proselytization, as a 16-year-old Swedish child with a developmental disability took to a podium at the United Nations to harangue and insult the leaders of the free world over the supposed “mass extinction” that is coming as a result of global warming.Sorry. “Climate change,” as though that is somehow a tragic event; never mind the fact that the climate changes four times per year in...

The 16-year-old is among four people named as the winners of a Right Livelihood Award, also called the “Alternative Nobel Prize.” “We honour and support courageous people solving global problems,” says their website. What problem Thunberg has “solved” is unclear. “Thunberg is the powerful voice of a young generation that will have to bear the consequences of today’s political failure to stop climate change. Her resolve to not put up with the looming...

    Democratic socialist U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York -- who insists the world has only 12 years left -- claims she captured on video the poisoning of the air by fracking. The only problem is there wasn't any fracking going on, and what she claimed was pollution was merely thermal waves.

    Teenage activist Greta Thunberg has won a £83,000 'Alternative Nobel Prize' for her crusade to stop climate change. The 16-year-old is among four people named today as the winners of a Right Livelihood Award, also known as the 'Alternative Nobel.' Thunberg is being recognized 'for inspiring and amplifying political demands for urgent climate action reflecting scientific facts,' the Swedish prize foundation said. The Swedish teenager, who has grabbed the world's attention this week with a fiery speech at the UN, was also hailed for 'personifying the notion that everyone has the power to create change'.
