    Washington Free Beacon ^ | October 19, 2018 | David Rutz
    Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.) said Friday there is too much "political correctness" in the United States these days, although he tagged both sides of the aisle as being to blame. . . "I think there is too much political correctness in this country, but I think health care is far and away the dominant issue," Schumer said. "There's a lot of political correctness on both sides all the time, and it's not the biggest issue, not even close. Biggest issue with independents? Health care."

    Catholic University’s president suspended a dean whose comments on social media this week questioned allegations of sexual assault against Supreme Court nominee Brett M. Kavanaugh. John Garvey, the president of the university, said Friday evening in an email to the campus that the remarks “demonstrated a lack of sensitivity to the victim.” Will Rainford, the dean, had issued a written apology Thursday evening for a remark he made on his university Twitter account that he said “unfortunately degraded” one of the women who have accused Kavanaugh of sexual assault. Julie Swetnick, the third woman in recent weeks to accuse Kavanaugh...
  • *vanity* Trump's furious behind closed doors.

    Reported on Shannon Bream's show that he's furious behind closed doors. Said if for some reason Kavanaugh's not confirmed, he'll have another name in an hour. I don't think we'll get to that point as I believe Mr. Kavanaugh will get confirmed. Who would Trump nominate if it came to that? My guess would be Ms. Barrett. How would the filthy rats smear her?

    Today my son brought up that they're having a "Peace Day" "celebration" tomorrow at school with stations to do things at. Such as "painting rocks with peace signs" and origami (wanted to do "peace" sign but wouldn't work he thinks). I.e., looks like they're pushing the stupid UN idea and of course, the hippie norm.

    Administrator’s have banned a 9/11 memorial at the Wisconsin college because Muslims might feel bad and get “singled out and/or harassed”. Young America’s Foundation which puts up the memorial each year said the administration cited bias reports. They are not allowed to put up a 9/11 memorial or any memorial for a victim of radical Islamic terrorism.

    Cue the Papa John vanishing act. Papa John’s, the embattled 5,212-unit pizza chain, has sent precise instructions to its store owners on how to remove every last image and signature of founder John Schnatter from its locations. Store owners should remove Schnatter’s signature from the wooden paddles used to take pizzas out of the oven — and replace it with images of vegetables or cheese...

    Shortly after the Washington Nationals fell to the Miami Marlins 5-0 on Sunday, Nationals shortstop Trea Turner found himself in an increasingly familiar position across the MLB. Multiple old tweets of Turner’s surfaced on Twitter on Sunday afternoon that contained offensive language. The tweets in question date back to 2011 and 2012, when Turner would have been 17 or 18 years old, and at least four of them contain both racist language and homophobic slurs. Be advised that the language used in the tweets below is offensive.

    ATLANTA -- Atlanta Braves pitcher Sean Newcomb apologized Sunday for a series of offensive tweets he sent as a teenager, calling them "some stupid stuff.'' The 25-year-old Newcomb spoke less than an hour after he nearly pitched a no-hitter against the Los Angeles Dodgers. The tweets were sent in 2011 and 2012, when Newcomb was a senior in high school. One tweet included a racial epithet that was part of a rap lyric, and several others contained gay slurs. "I just wanted to apologize for any insensitive material,'' Newcomb said. "It was a long time ago, six or seven years...

    Gov. Phil Murphy accused a pair of New Jersey radio hosts of spreading hate speech and issued sharp condemnation of their remarks Wednesday after the two repeatedly referred to New Jersey's Sikh attorney general as "turban man." The governor accused the hosts of 101.5 FM's "The Dennis & Judi Show" of "making "abhorrent and xenophobic" remarks toward Gurbir Grewal. Grewal, the nation's first Sikh attorney general, was referred to as "turban man" and "the guy with the turban" as the hosts discussed his recent move to tell municipal prosecutors not to pursue charges for marijuana arrests.

    WASHINGTON, D.C. – In the small lobby at the entrance of the home clubhouse at Nationals Park, Josh Hader, still in his All-Star Game uniform, sat in a puffy chair, his head tilted down, his eyes fixed on his phone’s screen, his thumbs the only thing moving. They swiped up, left thumb then right thumb, left then right, left then right, for a minute, then two, then three, before a security guard closed the door and cocooned Hader from the throng waiting outside to ask if he was a racist, sexist, bigoted homophobe. Outside the clubhouse, about 15 feet away,...

    UNITED KINGDOM, July 10, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – A doctor who has worked for 26 years with the UK’s National Health Service (NHS) has been “sacked” for refusing to use transgendered patients’ incorrect, “preferred” pronouns. The treatment of the 55-year-old father of four who believes that sex is biological and not a matter of personal preference raises questions about the chilling effect that pro-LGBT policies of government agencies have on freedom of speech, especially when it comes to Christians. Multiple reports from UK media indicate that Dr. David Mackereth was “deemed to be ‘unfit to work’ after he said he would...
  • Large-scale whaling in north Scandinavia may date back to 6th century

    Museum collections in Sweden contain thousands of Iron Age board-game pieces. New studies of the raw material composing them show that most were made of whalebone from the mid-6th century CE. They were produced in large volumes and standardised forms. The researchers therefore believe that a regular supply of whalebone was needed. Since the producers would hardly have found the carcasses of beached whales a reliable source, the gaming pieces are interpreted as evidence for whaling. Apart from an osteological survey, species origin has been determined for a small number of game pieces, using ZooMS (short for Zooarchaeology by Mass...

    The internet is in uproar (again). Developer DICE’s decision to include a woman on the cover art for this year’s Battlefield offering has, for some reason, antagonised the most vocal parts of the gaming internet. Within minutes of DICE revealing its new game, detractors on reddit, Twitter and various online gaming forums were spouting their vitriol, furious that DICE had sacrificed authenticity in favour of ‘political correctness’. Here’s the thing, though: it hasn’t. Women have always played a vital role in the World’s wars, and to ignore that is to be willfully ignorant. From soldiers enlisted in active duty to...

    In a perverse way, it’s a skill, really. Just not a skill anyone would want. A reverse Midas touch; a jinx, if you will. Whatever you want to call it, liberals have an incredible ability ruin everything, and they’re on the job 24/7. Remember when you could watch a TV show or go to the movies and not have to be bombarded with left-wing political messages, either blatant or subtle? When you were entertained by entertainment and you went to church if you wanted to be preached to. That’s not the case anymore. The “progressive” church is politics, political correctness...

    A week ago, Tommy Robinson (whose real name is Stephen Lennon), a British journalist and an activist, was arrested outside a Leeds courtroom for livestreaming information about a grooming gang, almost all of whom are Muslim men, on trial for raping and grooming hundreds of British victims, mostly girls. Robinson was all by himself and didn't have a crowd following him nor did he cause any public disturbance. Yet, U.K. police arrested him for "breach of the peace." It was reported that Robinson was promptly sentenced to 13 months in prison without his lawyer present. Some report said he was sentenced so...

    Kelly Sadler, a White House communications aide, made a crack recently during an internal meeting about how Sen. John McCain’s opposition to President Donald Trump’s CIA pick, Gina Haspel, didn’t matter because McCain is “dying anyway.” Once the remark was leaked, presumably by someone who doesn’t much like Sadler, the media — mainstream and social — exploded as if the stock market had crashed. What a horrifying thing to say! Proof of the rottenness at the core of the Trump White House! Off with her head — that is, let’s get her fired and ruin her career! Of course, it...

    Well, someone finally said it: Liberals, you’re not as smart as you think—and you’re helping Donald J. Trump win a second term. Gerard Alexander, a political science professor at the University of Virginia, wrote this in The New York Times and he might have to change his name after this. He aptly noted how a) cultural centers are dominated by progressives; b) how they’re causing a backlash against liberalism; and c) how their inability to see that they are causing it will lead to a Trump victory in the next presidential election. The professor noted how the Left is overly...

    The whole point of the First Amendment was to keep government out of crucial aspects of life –religion, speech, the press – that should be left entirely to voluntary action. It is supposed to shield people against governmental mandates and prohibitions. Government cannot keep you from practicing any religion and it cannot make you practice any; it cannot prevent you from speaking your mind and it cannot make you speak if you do not want to. That’s the concept, anyway. A case that the Court recently heard, National Institute of Family and Life Advocates (NIFLA) v. Becerra, puts that concept...
