    The reflective Mary Eberstadt has the latest Weekly Standard cover story, asserting that the late rise of identity politics especially among the young descends from the decline in family, despite myriad other theories. An excerpt: Maybe that cultural scream of ‘mine!’ is issuing from souls who did have something taken from them—only something more elemental than the totemic objects now functioning as figurative blankies for lost and angry former children. As of today, less than 65 percent of American children live with both biological parents, even as other familial boughs have broken via external forces like the opioid crisis, criminality...

    Tom Bloke, considered to be one of the leaders of the domestic terrorist group ANTIFA, took to Twitter today to threaten violence against “white parents” and “small business owners”.   can't wait for November 4th when millions of antifa supersoldiers will behead all white parents and small business owners in the town square — Tom Bloke (@21logician) October 30, 2017 Adding to the open display of anti-white racism and coupled with violence against small business owners (for whatever reason), the top-rated subtweet doubled down:What is “AntiFa” – a.k.a. “Anti-Fascists”, “ANTIFA”, “Antifa”? A historically relevant and radically far-left domestic terrorist organization...

    On Tuesday's The Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell, frequent MSNBC Republican guest David Frum lamented over the trend towards loosening gun laws -- even after high-profile mass shootings -- and then predicted that it would be necessary to convince gun owners that "you're a bad parent if you have a gun in the house" to get the public to support more gun restrictions. After Frum had spent time lamenting that since the Newtown school shootings in 2012, there have been a loosening of gun laws in many states, host O'Donnell followed up by suggesting that most Americans agree with a...

    Ironically the radical left protests pumping hormones into cattle and poultry, yet they applaud when it’s done to a child “Fallacies do not cease to be fallacies because they become fashions.”—G.K. Chesterson Concerned parents of school-aged children know that sexual revolutionaries and cultural Marxists are destroying our public schools and universities. But Charter schools were thought to be safe from these dark ideological radicals. Sexual revolutionaries and cultural Marxists believe that there are no differences between men and women, and that “male” and “female” are merely social constructs.

(go2.thetruthaboutvaccines.com) Our rates of autism currently are at one in 45 children per year being written in on the autism spectrum nightmare.

    The nursery in Amy Fabbrini and Eric Ziegler's home is filled with unread children's books and unworn baby clothes. A Winnie the Pooh blanket lies untouched inside a crib where a child has never slept. For nearly four years, the Redmond couple has been fighting to prove to the state of Oregon that they are intellectually capable of raising their children. The Department of Human Services has removed both of their boys, saying the parents are too mentally limited to be good parents. Fabbrini, 31, and Ziegler, 38, lost custody of their older son, Christopher, shortly after he was born....

    As the millennial generation ages, much research has been done in an attempt to figure out their worldview. Companies have dedicated millions in marketing dollars to study the group, hoping to find the key that opens their wallets. Of course, it’s not just millennial spending habits that have garnered attention. As these young Americans move further into adulthood, they will also become a stronger political force. As such, political parties and politicians have become increasingly interested in appealing to the growing voter bloc. After all, it won’t be long until the millennial generation is the most influential in the country....

    he New York Times is dispensing parenting advice in its latest identity politics piece all about raising “feminist sons.” “We raise our girls to fight stereotypes and pursue their dreams, but we don’t do the same for our boys,” writes columnist Claire Cain Miller. “They’re discouraged from having interests that are considered feminine. They’re told to be tough at all costs, or else to tamp down their so-called boy energy.” Miller reached out to “experts” for her piece, including rabid feminist Gloria Steinem, and featured her dastardly quote: “I’m glad we’ve begun to raise our daughters more like our sons,...

    (CNSNews.com) - In 24 of the nation’s 50 states at least half of the babies born during the latest year on record had their births paid for by Medicaid, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation. New Mexico led all states with 72 percent of the babies born there in 2015 having their births covered by Medicaid. Arkansas ranked second with 67 percent; Louisiana ranked third with 65 percent; and three states—Mississippi, Nevada and Wisconsin—tied for fourth place with 64 percent of babies born there covered by Medicaid. New Hampshire earned the distinction of having the smallest percentage of babies born...

    The proud parents of twin boys in New York found out why their toddlers seemed like they hadn't been sleeping through the night. Because the toddlers definitely were not sleeping. Video recorded by Jonathan and Susana Balkin on their Nest home monitoring system shows 2-year-old twins, Andrew and Ryan having a gymnastics roll-around instead of getting much-needed sleep. The boys easily climbed in and out of their cribs, which are side-by-side in their shared bedroom. They proceeded to line pillows along the floor and do summersaults, and then took rests on the couch together, before going back to their floor...

    "You're going without me?" My not-yet-6-year-old daughter stood resolutely between us and the door. "Yes," I said. "Your mom and I need to go." "Without me?" "We only have two tickets." "Why?" My profoundly puzzled daughter asked this question in complete sincerity. The story that answers it began several weeks before that moment of familial crisis in a midtown Manhattan hotel. I was driving to work one March morning in the suburbs of Washington, D.C. -- listening to talk radio. The lead local news story that day had nothing to do with politics or government but had global significance. Seventy-eight-year-old...

    The vast majority of left-wing protesters arrested on suspicion of politically-fuelled offences in Berlin are young men who live with their parents, a new report found. The figures, which were published in daily newspaper Bild revealed that 873 suspects were investigated by authorities between 2003 and 2013. Of these 84 per cent were men, and 72 per cent were aged between 18 and 29. More than half of the arrests were made in the Berlin districts of Friedrichshain, Kreuzberg and Mitte, mostly during demonstrations. A third of them were unemployed, and 92 per cent still live with their parents. The...
  • CATHOLIC CAUCUS: Fatima visionary predicted 'final battle' would be over marriage, family

    Mexico City, Mexico, Dec 31, 2016 / 02:33 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- Sister Lucia dos Santos, one of the three children who witnessed the Marian apparitions at Fatima, died in 2005. But before her death, she predicted that the final battle between Christ and Satan would be over marriage and the family. So says Cardinal Carlo Caffarra, who reports that the visionary sent him a letter with this prediction when he was Archbishop of Bologna, Italy. This reported statement by Sister Lucia, expressed during the pontificate of Saint John Paul II, was revisited earlier this year by the Desde la Fe...

    Nobody has a mother or a father, according to a certain Bill 28 recently passed in the legislature of Ontario, Canada. Got that? The law’s official title is: “An Act to amend the Children’s Law Reform Act, the Vital Statistics Act and various other Acts respecting parentage and related registrations.” Basically, the law scrubs the words “mother” and “father” from documents, and replaces them with the neutered term “parent.” The law also raises the number of legal parents to as many as four per child. In other words, the government of Ontario will cease to legally recognize the natural origins...

    It wouldn’t be the first progressive idea to be taken on by conservatives. A group of Bundestag members in the Christian Democratic Union (CDU) have proposed offering parents a basic state income — independent of their own financial situation. The fixed monthly payment, the exact amount of which was not mentioned, would be tied to child care costs and would be subject to social insurance contributions. The payment, part of what the CDU calls its “family pact,” would also be paid out from birth until the child starts school, regardless of whether the parents send their children to kindergartens or...

    MONDAY, Nov. 14, 2016 -- Spanking and hitting children to discipline them has been on the decline among U.S. parents -- rich and poor alike -- since 1988, a new study finds. According to the researchers, the number of mothers with an average income level who considered physical discipline acceptable decreased from 46 percent to 21 percent over two decades. At the same time, mothers who felt timeouts were a better type of discipline rose from 51 percent to 71 percent, the investigators found. "Parents seem to be using more reasoning and nonphysical discipline strategies with children, which is...
