    Liberals are now suffering under the heel of the monster they created to attack the rest of us just trying to mind our own business, and it’s a beautiful thing. But it’s also really sad and a sign that things will get much worse for all of us before they get any better. Most people don’t care about the Oscars. As the ratings have shown, fewer and fewer people each year watch them. This is due, in part, to the fact that the Oscars hold so many of us in contempt – political lectures and condescension are more common in...
  • CMS may allow hospitals to pay for housing through Medicaid

    Modern Healthcare ^ | 11/26/18 | Paul Barr, Virgil Dickinson
    HHS Secretary Alex Azar on Wednesday said Medicaid may soon allow hospitals and health systems to directly pay for housing, healthy food or other solutions for the "whole person." In a speech supported by the Hatch Foundation for Civility and Solutions and Intermountain Healthcare in Washington, Azar said Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation officials are looking to move beyond existing efforts to partner with social services groups and try to manage social determinants of health as they see appropriate. "What if we gave organizations more flexibility so they could pay a beneficiary's rent if they were in unstable housing,...

    Silent on sexual abuse among the clergy, Pope Francis, who has been loquacious on global warming/climate change and immigration, is just as much a politician as Barack Obama is Why is Francis, the fully Vatican-backed 266th Pope ignoring what the Catholic blogosphere is calling “the biggest crisis in the Catholic Church since Reformation” amidst continuing irrefutable proof that hundreds of Catholic clergy engage in regular sexual abuse and get away with it? No pontiff can hide proof of truth like a lighted candle under a bushel, nor will refusing to discuss a scandal ever make it go away.
  • A Social Justice Warrior’s Guide To A Woke Thanksgiving

    Liberty Nation ^ | Nov 22 | Jeff charles
    Once every year, Americans gather with their families to celebrate the beginning of white supremacy in the United States. They call this holiday “Thanksgiving,” but those of us who are woke call it “The Day White People Destroyed the American Continent by Creating an Oppressive Capitalist Regime.” We are still working on shortening the name, but the point remains. On this day, ignorant souls cheerfully gorge themselves on turkey, sweet potatoes, and green bean casserole, while minorities suffer in darkness; police are shooting black men in the streets by the thousands, women are having their rights taken away, and gay...

    The controversy over a campaign staffer to Republican state Sen. Martin Golden inviting an alt-right leader to speak at a GOP club continued to escalate as a Bay Ridge social justice organization demonstrated in front of the lawmaker’s campaign headquarters and supporters staunchly defended him. The group Bay Ridge for Social Justice held a protest rally outside Golden’s campaign office at 7615 Third Ave. on Oct. 21 to demand that the senator fire Ian Reilly.

    You have GOT to read this, from Quillette! It starts with this editor’s note: Editor’s note: For the past year scholars James Lindsay, Helen Pluckrose, and Peter Boghossian have sent fake papers to various academic journals which they describe as specialising in activism or “grievance studies.” Their stated mission has been to expose how easy it is to get “absurdities and morally fashionable political ideas published as legitimate academic research.” To date, their project has been successful: seven papers have passed through peer review and have been published, including a 3000 word excerpt of Adolf Hitler’s Mein Kampf, rewritten in...

    Grace To You ^ | September 7, 2018 | John MacArthur
    The besetting sin of pragmatic, style-conscious evangelicals has always been that they shamelessly borrow fads and talking points from the unbelieving world. Today’s evangelicals evidently don’t believe the wisdom of this world is foolishness before God (1 Corinthians 3:19). Virtually any theory, ideology, or amusement that captures the fancy of secular pop culture will be adopted, slightly adapted, perhaps cloaked in spiritual-sounding language, propped up with specious proof texts, and peddled as an issue that is vital for evangelicals to embrace if we don’t want to become totally irrelevant. That’s precisely how evangelicals in the mid-twentieth century became obsessed for...

    Everything wrong with the social justice movement is currently on display in Ferguson. Four years after Michael Brown’s death, a group of protesters are trying to shut down the store Brown visited just before he was killed. They blockaded the store until the police finally made them stop and continue to protest the store and verbally harass anyone who tries to shop there. My wife and I were present at a City Council meeting observing the protesters. Some threatened to burn the store down and to harm the owners, an Indian-American family. Others added a dose of racism, calling the...

    Evergreen State College enrollment plummeted after fallout from the controversial “Day of Absence” in May 2017 when all white people were asked to leave the campus. The publicly funded college – committed to social justice – became the poster child of a campus overrun by hyper-political correctness when students shut down the campus and shouted down then-evolutionary biology professor Bret Weinstein for merely questioning the event kicking white people off campus. Weinstein, who describes himself as “deeply progressive,” ultimately lost his job and was labeled a “racist” and “white supremacist.” Although just estimates, a representative from Evergreen said they expect...
  • Social Justice Teaching Has Invaded Business Schools

    Many professors cannot resist the temptation to smuggle their personal beliefs into the courses they teach. As long as those beliefs are “progressive,” there is little chance that higher-ups in their departments or top administrators will try to rein them in. For example, engineering has been infiltrated by activists who are concerned about social justice concerns, not just how to best design objects for performance and safety, as Michigan State professor Indrek Wichman pointed out. A recent article published on Inside Higher Ed, “B-Schools That Don’t Boast About Billionaire Alumni,” similarly informs us that some business school professors have decided...

    A relatively unpublicized and unpromoted online statement for Christians to affirm that they are defying the “social justice” agenda of some American churches, and rejecting “values borrowed from secular culture,” is surging. Introduced only days ago, by Thursday afternoon it had nearly 5,000 signatures from individuals and groups, including churches. The Daily Wire said the “Statement on Social Justice & the Gospel” even is attracting opposition, such as the criticism from Ryan Burton King, of Grace Baptist in the United Kingdom, who charged that the signers are “not at all ‘getting’ what those whom it primarily addresses are saying.” WND...

    These social justice brats will know “capitalism and Christianity are evil” because their smart devices, corrupt politicians, and teachers would have told them so at nauseam If I had a dollar for every young and ill-informed brat in this country who believes that our nation is oppressive and in need of a communist “social justice” makeover, supporting the benched quarterback who took a knee during the playing of our National Anthem, I would be rich. It would seem that education would clarify the confusion these brats experience. However, since most educators are hard-core socialists and they indoctrinate every student who...

    James G. Martin Center for Academic Renewal ^ | August 15, 2018 | Mark Pulliam
    The latest racket in higher education, evident at my alma mater, the University of Texas at Austin, is the disturbing proliferation of “social justice” as a degree program, a course topic, an academic emphasis, and even as a prerequisite in campus job descriptions. “Social justice” is a seemingly innocuous term with no established definition. Many members of the general public construe it as a harmless synonym for “fairness.” But to progressives—who dominate the academy these days—“social justice” is a colloquial expression with a specific meaning: economic equity (the redistribution of wealth), “sustainability” (a pre-industrial environmental ethos), and the elimination of...

    Report: teachers balked at increased objectivity. A group of history school teachers in Massachusetts pledged to reject teaching objectivity while they conspired to hide their anti-Trump prejudice, emails show. The Federalist reported that the Newton North High School teachers were instructed by the principal to show their students different perspectives on issues like gun laws and immigration. Teacher David Bedar accused the president and his supporters of “nativism, xenophobia, homophobia, etc.” and wrote that he found it difficult to teach other perspectives in early 2017. "Personally, I’m finding it really difficult in the current climate to teach kids to appreciate...

    On July 13, 2013, following the acquittal of the neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman, a year after he fatally shot an unarmed black teenager named Trayvon Martin, the Oakland, Calif.-based writer and activist Alicia Garza posted on Facebook: “Black people, I love you. I love us. We matter. Our lives matter.” Patrisse Cullors, another California writer and artist, shared the post and created the hashtag #BlackLivesMatter. At the same time they organized protests against the Zimmerman verdict, the two women, along with the New York-based community organizer Opal Tometi, quickly built up the Black Lives Matter network on social media....

    U.S. District Judge Carol Bagley Amon has denied an injunction sought by the New York Attorney General (OAG) against 13 pro-life Christians who counsel women and preach the gospel on the public sidewalks outside New York’s largest abortion business. Liberty Counsel represents defendant Scott Fitchett, Jr., who was sued with the other defendants in June 2017 by former New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman who wanted to shut down the Christian and pro-life speech of the defendants outside Choices Women’s Medical Center in Jamaica, NY. Fitchett is a pre-K teacher who has spent Saturdays peacefully sharing the gospel on public...

    Over the last few years, a select few schools around the country have shown the high cost of catering to the demands of partisan activist groups and mobs of social justice warriors. Schools like Evergreen State College, the University of Missouri and Oberlin College are all notorious for their tendency to pander to social justice activists — and now they are paying the price. Although college enrollment is slightly declining throughout the country, these institutions have seen massive declines over just the past few years.

I have been prayerfully following this Border Crisis issue day by day. I clearly need a more adequate understanding.

    When liberals start talking about “values,” watch out! They’ve been doing it a lot lately, probably because they want you to think they’re “good people.” It’s as if their entire sense of self worth is built around virtue-signalling, or unashamedly proclaiming their “virtues” to the rest of us unredeemable deplorables, all while unashamedly working to implement policies that would literally destroy everything good about Western civilization.Except, liberals really only have one virtue, one value, one “moral” belief upon which they can hang their hat and check off that coveted “good person” box, at least in their own minds. That’s it -...
