  • Gun-waving ‘kill cops and white people’ activist thought a black woman judge..

    ...would let her off easy– WRONG! A Georgia #BlackLivesMatter activist, who posted video threats against police, didn’t get any special treatment just because her judge was also a black woman. Clayton County Magistrate Judge Wanda Dallas didn’t buy Latausha Nedd‘s argument that she was just exercising her First Amendment rights by waving a gun and a machete at the camera in her videos, and calling for “blacks to take police officer’s guns, take over a police station, and kill white people.” Dallas slapped Nedd with $70,000 bail, and declared that charges of criminal solicitation and terroristic threats should go forward....

    In his last phone call home, Lance Cpl. Gregory Buckley Jr. told his father what was troubling him: From his bunk in southern Afghanistan, he could hear Afghan police officers sexually abusing boys they had brought to the base. “At night we can hear them screaming, but we’re not allowed to do anything about it,” the Marine’s father, Gregory Buckley Sr., recalled his son telling him before he was shot to death at the base in 2012. He urged his son to tell his superiors. “My son said that his officers told him to look the other way because it’s...
  • What Sarah Palin's 'speak American' is all about

    CNN ^ | September 6, 2015 | John McWhorter
    Sarah Palin is hardly alone in her sense of some threat to the hegemony of English in the United States. You know the drill -- Jeb Bush answers a question in comfortable Spanish, and Palin, after some perfunctory compliments that Bush's conversational Spanish will be good for connecting to Latinos, gets in that here in the United States we need to "speak American." The problem with this kind of rhetoric is that it corresponds to no crisis. There hasn't been any documented tendency for native-born Americans to be uncomfortable in English. Those born here to non-English speaking parents speak their...

  • Should We Lower the Age of Consent to Protect Teenagers? (Nov. 18 2013)

    06/28/2015 4:54:39 AM PDT · by Erik Latranyi · 77 replies
    Slate ^ | Nov. 18 2013 | Amanda Hess
    In 16th-century England, the age of consent was set at 10 years old in an effort to protect young girls from sexual abuse by adult men. In 1875, parliament raised the age of consent to 13; in 1885, it upped it to 16. Now, a leading public health advocate has proposed that the United Kingdom bring the age down again in light of the high proportion of British adolescents who are having sex—with one another—before they’re legally capable of granting consent. Lowering the age of consent to 15 (where it stands in Sweden) or 14 (where it’s set in Germany...
  • State Department Officially Calls Iran’s Forced Sex Change Surgeries ‘Confirmation’

    06/27/2015 8:22:56 PM PDT · by massmike · 24 replies ^ | 06/27/2015 | Ivan Plis
    A report issued Thursday by the Department of State repeatedly refers to sex reassignment surgery in Iran as “gender-confirmation surgery.” Iran has a well-documented record of coercing gay and lesbian people into having the gender reassignment surgery, that is, disrupting rather than “confirming” the gender identity of hundreds per year. Since homosexuality can be punishable by death in Iran, known homosexual men tend to accept the government-subsidized surgery to become women, and vice versa. By referring to the surgeries as “gender confirmation,” rather than the much more widespread and morally neutral “sex reassignment surgery,” the State Department seems to be...

    State District Judge Jeanine Howard of Dallas has removed herself from a controversial rape case after questioning the victim's innocence and sentencing the admitted rapist to community service at a rape crisis center.

The judge, a Democrat running unopposed for reelection in the fall, cited medical records that showed the girl's past sexual activity and that...

The find prompted the evacuation of O’Hare International Airport by the FBI before officials concluded there was no risk of the shells exploding. It is not clear how the students, aged...

    According to its website, the Associated Press is one of the “…most trusted sources of independent news gathering.” AP journalists operate “…in more than 280 locations worldwide, including every statehouse in the U.S.” AP employees have won 51 Pulitzer prizes. The AP proudly announces that its journalists “…have gone to great lengths, overcome obstacles and, too often, sacrificed to ensure that the news has been reported quickly, accurately and honestly.” Most importantly, the AP claims that the organization “…fights for freedom of the press and the public’s right to know.” (my italics) On March 26th, the Washington Post published an...
