    A group of vegans thought they would further their cause by storming a Toronto steakhouse, peppering a hostess with questions and shouting at customers.Instead, even those on the left are ridiculing their tactics. Several protesters from a group identified as “Direct Action Everywhere Toronto” by the Huffington Post entered The Keg Mansion steakhouse in Toronto, Canada. Video shows the lead agitator perusing a menu near the entrance of the restaurant.“So, I’m just wondering, I don’t see any dog meat here,” the protester said to the hostess trying to wait on restaurant patrons. The hostess stood stone-faced, either unamused or not...

    Sweden has shown its helpful side to the refugees travelling to the North through numerous peaceful countries during their quest to find the best welfare. Sweden has fed them, protected them and transported them free of charge with trains and buses to the Finnish border, much like Croatia is doing before pushing the refugees to Hungary, and now some refugees want to go back to the protective bosom of Sweden. A group of Afghan men appeared at the border station yesterday stating their wish to be transported back to Sweden’s Stockholm. They got as far as Oulu, a city in...

    If Europe was concerned about Christian-Muslim cross religious and cultural differences before, and in light of the recent influx of Syrian refugees into the continent, events over the weekend confirmed such concerns are poignantly valid. This Saturday, during a conference at the Muslim Salon in Pontoise near Paris on the role of Muslim women, two Muslim fundamentalist imams were debating the question of "whether wives should be beaten or not", Telegraph reports that two Femen protester activists, aged 25 and 31, "ripped off their Arab-style cloaks and jumped on to the stage on Saturday evening.

    Two Femen protesters were arrested after baring their breasts at a controversial conference near Paris on the role of Muslim women. According to Inna Shevchenko, a spokeswoman for the feminist protest group, two fundamentalist preachers were discussing the question of “whether wives should be beaten or not” when the activists, aged 25 and 31, ripped off their Arab-style cloaks and jumped on to the stage on Saturday evening. One had the slogan “No one subjugates me” inked across her torso. The other bore the words “I am my own prophet.” The protesters, aged 25 and 31, grabbed microphones and shouted...

    Rarely one to share the spotlight, Texas firebrand Sen. Ted Cruz made a notable exception on Wednesday when he welcomed 2016 rival Donald Trump to Capitol Hill to protest the Iran nuclear deal. The two Republican presidential candidates headlined a tea party rally in opposition to the "catastrophic" proposed agreement between Iran and six world powers in what was the clearest sign yet of how Cruz is linking himself to the GOP frontrunner. Both candidates warned of dire consequences if the deal is implemented, especially the impact it would have on Israel. In previous statements, though, the two have differed...

    Thousands of antiabortion activists descended upon Planned Parenthood clinics on Saturday to participate in a nationwide protest aimed at cutting off federal funding for the controversial health-care organization. The demonstrations unfolded at about 320 clinics around the nation, according to organizers, with some gatherings drawing a few dozen protesters and others drawing hundreds and perhaps thousands more. The protests kicked off at 9 a.m. Saturday and included speakers, prayer groups and chants, as well as signs distributed by organizers that said “Planned Parenthood sells baby parts.” ***VIDEO ON LINK******

    I thought we’d already reached Peak Trumpmania but if his next speech ends with Trump’s bodyguards going toe to toe with left-wing black activists trying to commandeer his stage to rant against the police, we might yet see him crack 50 percent in the polls. I’m shocked that he ended up saying this off the cuff in a Q&A last night rather than as part of his prepared remarks. It’s so squarely in the wheelhouse of his appeal — offering to fight, literally, against a group that’s politically correct to the point of being sacrosanct among progressives — that a...

The location on Providence Road is officially called the Columbia Health Center. The rally came two days before the center will begin taking appointments for abortions. Columbia Health Center will be the only abortion provider in mid-Missouri. Because of the 72-hour waiting period, the first day that abortions can be administered will be Aug. 3.

A broken hip will learn the old-timer not to go mouthing off about Benghazi, I guess. Kind of surprised to find two Obama fans this ardent at a VFW gathering, to be honest. Perhaps reflecting mixed feelings about the president among veterans, Obama often drew tepid applause, especially for comments about his nuclear deal with Iran. He did, however, receive a rousing ovation after calling for...

Vehicles from states across the South and as far away as California participated. "That flag has a lot of different meanings to a lot of different people," said...

    If you think that things couldn't get any worse in Baltimore after the riots last month following Freddie Gray's death, guess again. Police have responded to the indictment of six officers in that case and the resultant chaos by pulling back. Arrests are way down, with bookings decreasing by 50 percent. Cops are either angry over the indictments or afraid of making another arrest that could end up on the front page. So consciously or unconsciously, they are standing aside instead of charging in. Not too coincidentally, crime is up. By this weekend the city will probably exceed 40 murders...

Children were sledding down Capitol Hill. This was despite a specific ban on sledding or skiing around the capitol. Both activities are expressly forbidden. To be fair, cross-country skiing IS allowed, but only for the purpose of transportation. Presumably, that's no fun at all and therefore totally OK. Not everyone was happy about this, according to The Hill. Capitol Police Board Chairman and Senate Sgt. At Arms...

    Grace Brewer says she never thought she would be without health insurance at this stage of her life. "I'm a casualty of Obamacare," says Brewer, 60, a self-employed chiropractor in the Kansas City, Kansas, area. She wanted to keep the catastrophic health insurance plan she once had, which she says fit her needs. But under the Affordable Care Act, the government's health care reform law, the plan was discontinued because it did not comply with the law's requirements, and her bills doubled to more than $400 a month. "I wanted a minimal plan and I’m not allowed to have it,"...

    Supporters of a large demonstration at the Mall of America last month are urging the City of Bloomington not to pursue charges for disrupting retailers and shoppers.

It was part of a nationwide wave of protests following incidents in Missouri and New York in which unarmed black men were killed by police. City Attorney Sandra Johnson says she plans to file charges against protest organizers for unlawful...

    Sunday was a bad day to order the egg-white omelet. Not content with disrupting medal ceremonies for centenarian WWII veterans, the “hands up, don’t shoot” crowd served up its latest concoction: “Black Brunch,” in which protesters stormed brunch-serving restaurants — a.k.a. “white spaces” — in Manhattan and Oakland, Calif., chanting, singing, waving banners and posters, and reading off names of black citizens killed by police. If that seems hip and edgy to you, then you were probably brunching at Lallisse on Sunday morning. In an interview in Spook magazine, “activists” Wazi Maret Davis and Brianna Gibson, discussing an earlier...

    Brenden LaRosa showed up to protest during First Night festivities with a message: Americans must talk to each other about race and policing, no matter how hard — or how unpopular — the conversation is. “We almost want people to feel uncomfortable. Then you’re forced to answer this question, and you’re forced to question the way you feel about it,” said the 19-year-old from Everett, who joined other demonstrators Wednesday evening in Copley Square. He estimated that he has been to five protests against the recent grand jury decisions not to indict white officers who killed unarmed black men in...

    Anti-police protesters are planning to disrupt New Year’s Eve celebrations at major metropolitan sites. The website Stop Mass Incarceration calls upon activists to not allow New Years Eve 2015 “to go down because business as usual in Amerikkka includes wanton police murder of Black people.”The announcement says that as Americans around the country ringing in the New Year must be disrupted: “The refusal of grand juries in Ferguson and Staten Island to indict the cops who murdered Michael Brown and Eric Garner made this clear. So the powerful, beautiful and necessary outpourings that have disrupted this society’s normal routine must...
