    The Federalist ^ | 07/14/2018 | By Henry Jacobson
    Thanks to the exaggerated outrage of the mainstream media and the attention-seeking protests of London leftists, a narrative seems to have set in that the vast majority of British people oppose this week’s visit of President Trump. As a Brit myself, however, I am delighted to confirm this lazy slur could not be further from the truth.In reality, the vast majority of British conservatives (and a good chunk of floating voters too) are coming to admire Trump. His unmistakable approach to politics – straight-talking, honest and completely fearless – is increasingly viewed with envy by British voters tired of backsliding...

    **SNIP** While politicians consider whether or not they’d support a nominee who opposes the 1973 decision that legalized abortion, some women have a strategy to drum up support for a woman’s right to choose: the #Lysistrata2018 movement. Named after Aristophanes’s ancient Greek comedy Lysistrata, in which women refuse to sleep with their warring husbands until they agree to a truce, the movement is the brainchild of author and political journalist Jennifer Wright. In a tweet posted on Monday, Wright suggested that single women stop dating and having sex with men expressing anti-abortion views. Women could indicate their stance by adding...

The Families Belong Together rally is part...

    The rally began with drums and a reminder that the story of most Americans began somewhere else. A representative of the Piscataway Indian Nation addressed a crowd of thousands assembled in Lafayette Square on Saturday in Spanish, then English. Sebastian Medina-Tayac burned tobacco, a Native American prayer tradition, said a prayer and then sang an indigenous-language song from Bolivia that means, “take courage.” “We don’t believe in borders. We don’t believe in walls,” Medina-Tayac said. The rally ended with a march past the White House and the Trump International Hotel and on to the Department of Justice, where protesters affixed...

    Rioters hurl rocks, Molotov cocktails and a bomb at troops, incendiary balloons spark 15 fires in Israel; small Israeli drone downed; over 100 Palestinians said hurtTwo Palestinians were killed Friday in violent demonstrations along the Gaza Strip’s border with Israel, Gaza’s Hamas-run health ministry said. A 13-year-old was fatally shot in the head and a 24-year-old man died of gunshot wounds to his leg and abdomen, the ministry said. According to some reports, the boy was shot while sabotaging the border fence. A paramedic told AP the teenager was throwing stones “very close to the fence” before he was shot.Around...

    I'm not surprised that mobs shriek at Trump administration officials in restaurants and that Maxine Waters wants more of that. I've watched this happen at American colleges. One example: Heather Mac Donald is a Manhattan Institute scholar who wrote the book "The War on Cops." She argues that Americans are less safe today because police, for fear of being called racist, back off. I sometimes disagree with Mac Donald, but she is a thoughtful researcher whose ideas deserve to be heard. At UCLA, when she was allowed to give her "Blue Lives Matter" speech, many in the audience applauded. But...

    “What the regime feared most is happening,” Alinejad tells me. “Tehran had stayed calm as nationwide protests at the beginning of the year engulfed 80 cities. Now an impromptu protest in Tehran by merchants against economic mismanagement has turned into a massive anti-regime event, with chants of death to dictator and death to Palestine.”

    Over 2,000 people attended a neo-Nazi music festival in the German city of Themar on over the weekend. German police reported that during the event, which was attended by local neo-Nazis, 55 criminal offenses were recorded. 33 of the offenses involved the use or display of symbols prohibited by the German constitution, including a swastika, the use of Nazi salutes, and more. One of the concert participants also struck a press photographer who documented the event. Attendees began arriving on Friday for the festival, which took place on Saturday and Sunday. The annual festival is the largest neo-Nazi event in...

    The students of March for Our Lives, including survivors of the Parkland high school shooting, today will announce a 60-day, 20-state, 75-stop summer bus tour to register young people to vote and to promote gun law reform. A key quote: David Hogg, 18, who graduated yesterday with the other seniors of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, told me in an interview Saturday to promote the tour that his biggest surprise as he travels the country has been: "There’s a lot more love than hate out there." Hogg, who plans to work on voter registration during his gap year ahead, said:...

    A small group of Google employees, in response to a company contract with a Pentagon-backed program called Maven, have discussed the idea of staging a protest at a conference in July. Employees fear that the project, which provides artificial intelligence tools to the military, could be used in fatal drone strikes. The protest, as discussed in preliminary exchanges over Google’s internal communications platform, would take place at a Google Cloud conference in San Francisco, according to messages obtained by HuffPost and an interview with an employee. More than a dozen Google employees have resigned over the project, according to Gizmodo,...

    At least four police vans responded to the march as it made its way through Leeds. Many supporters brandished "Free Tommy" placards and demonstrators chanted "let Tommy out" at police officers. The march was organised by the group Proud British, which says on Facebook that its purpose is to "voice freedom of speech" and "stop the strain on the NHS, schools and our public services." One supporter of Robinson told a reporter: "Journalist? F*** off — you're all scum". Some protestors were heard making racist chants. Crowds chanted "BBC BBC" in protest at what they see as the corporation's bias...

    Brazil’s conservative president Michel Temer has ordered the army and federal police to clear highways blockaded by striking truck drivers after a protest over soaring fuel prices entered its fifth day. The blockades have paralysed much of the country’s economy and prompted Săo Paulo, the biggest city in South America, to declare a state of emergency over fuel shortages. “I have actioned the federal security forces to unblock highways and I am asking governors to do the same,” Temer said in a televised address on Friday. “We will not let the population do without its primary needs.” The protests began...

    On the morning of April 4, 2004, U.S. Army Specialist Casey Austin Sheehan was an altar server at the Palm Sunday Mass at his military base in Iraq. By nightfall he was dead. Sheehan’s death led his mother, Cindy Sheehan, to question why the U.S. was involved in the war. The rationale behind the war, she said, kept changing. She founded Gold Star Families for Peace and, in August of 2005, famously staged a month-long protest encampment at then-President George W. Bush’s Texas ranch. This Friday, Sheehan will speak in the auditorium of St. John’s Episcopal Church, 321 W. Chestnut...

    Teenagers armed themselves with a megaphone and gathered outside the Governor’s Mansion in downtown Austin Sunday night to try and get attention for their cause. “Ted Cruz, Greg Abbott, Texas legislators -- for as long as this is happening, we will stand to make sure that common-sense gun laws are enacted,” yelled one of the speakers through the device... The students also staged a “die-in,” laying down on the ground for 23 minutes as if they were dead -- one minute for every school shooting since the start of the school year... These students also want to end the culture...

    “We reject the practice and pattern of lying that is invading our political and civil life. Politicians, like the rest of us, are human, fallible, sinful, and mortal. “But when public lying becomes so persistent that it deliberately tries to change facts for ­ideological, political, or personal gain, the public accountability to truth is undermined.” Last year Rev Curry’s church slammed a ­decision by Trump to revoke one of Barack Obama’s policies in a bid to restrict the rights of immigrant children. He and more than 120 bishops claimed it would “endanger the lives of thousands of young people and...

    Muslim parents recently erupted when the Jersey City school board announced it would not suddenly cancel classes for all students to mark Islam’s Eid al-Adha holiday, due Sept. 24. The Muslim parents loudly protested even though the board said students “can continue to take days off for religious purposes without penalty,” including Sept. 24. But the parents wanted the state to accept their religious event, and to impose their holiday on other students. One Muslim woman who attended the September 17 meeting said, “‘We’re no longer the minority, that’s clear from tonight. We’re going to be the majority soon.” According...
