    RH Reality Check ^ | August 26, 2014 | Katherine Cross
    The events that have unfolded in Ferguson, Missouri, in recent weeks have revealed many tragedies, among them the fact that the death of so many youth of color in this country is still debatable in its status as a vaunted “feminist issue.” But it is, and the expansive definition of reproductive justice, which reaches into the universe of conditions necessary to create and sustain life, shows us how. As RH Reality Check Senior Legal Analyst Imani Gandy put it so well in a recent tweet: Imani ABL @AngryBlackLady I saw so many people on Twitter saying "I don't want to...

    The Fayette Citizen ^ | August 26, 2014 | Terry Garlock
    On Monday, Aug. 11, a 20-year-old unarmed white man named Dillon Taylor was shot and killed in Salt Lake City, Utah, by a black police officer in questionable circumstances. Taylor, a first-time father with a criminal record, had at the time of the shooting an outstanding arrest warrant for probation violations on robbery and obstruction of justice charges. Police had been called to a convenience store after someone reported seeing a gun. Taylor’s friends said he was turning his life around, that he had never carried a gun, that he was listening to music on headphones and was shot outside...
  • I’m thinking of writing an opera called “Why Michael Brown Deserved to Die.”

    What do you think? Do you think if I write a thought-provoking, probingly-artistic contemporary opera on the subject of Michael Brown’s untimely shooting, it will be met with critical acclaim? Maybe it will be performed by the New York Metropolitan Opera during its 2015 season, and will be described as “dialogue” on a difficult subject. You don’t think so? I can’t imagine why. It seems right in line with what the Met has planned this year with “The Death of Klinghofer.” You remember Leon Klinghofer, don’t you? He was the 69-year-old Jewish man who, in 1985, was pushed off the...

    An ICM poll on behalf of the Russian state news agency Rossiya Segodnya tested the public attitude towards the group ISIS (formerly known as the Islamic State of Iraq and Levant or ISIL, and now calling itself Islamic State or IS) in 3 European countries: Great Britain, France and Germany. The news agency commissioning the poll may be Putin-friendly, but the polling firm ICM is as reputable as any. The survey asked people whether they had a favourable or unfavourable view of ISIS. In France, 16% say they have a favourable view. In the UK, 7% say they have...

    'Some of my best friends are black!' You're probably lying. Do you have friends of another race? Statistically speaking, probably not.With so much racial unrest going on in America these days, it can be hard for people to understand the "other" side. Maybe it's because white Americans never walked a mile in a black friend's shoes -- or maybe because they have no black friends to begin with. Public Religion Research Institute found that whites' social networks are 91 percent white. Even more alarming, 75 percent of whites have a totally white social network. For a nation that prides itself...

    Dignitas News Service ^ | August 26, 2014 | Paul M Winters
    No term in the American lexicon has impacted the national debate over the past few years as has "white privilege." The term initially sprung up in that great cradle of pointless conversation, left-wing academia, and has gone on to dominate the American political discussion with increasing furor in the years of the Obama Administration. Liberals assert that the causation of so many of the social inequities in our nation stem from the inherent privilege that white Americans enjoy in our society, as a result of our history and racial discrimination. As is the case, however, with nearly all liberal-progressive talking...

    The development is about 15 years old One of the major reasons for those who push for a disarmed population to desire the registration of all firearms is that it makes the ownership of the means to self defense contingent on government approval.  This is the philosophy that "everything that is not permitted is forbidden", rather than the standard English/American philosophy that "everything that is not forbidden is allowed".  It is an enormous difference in perspective.  In Revere, Massachusetts, a homeowner evicted from a party after getting in a fight.   He returned with his 50 year old step father.  ...

    Back in March, I wrote a piece for CatholicVote about FDA evaluation of a process that would create multi-parent embryos: Things like this always begin for such seemingly noble scientific reasons, don’t they? But they rarely stop there. And of course in addition to creating tri-parent offspring, which creates ethical and genealogical nightmares in its own right, virtually every instance of embryonic modification involves a slew of violations of the moral law, from in-vitro fertilization to the destruction of fertilized human embryos — human life — deemed imperfect or unnecessary to achieve the desired outcome.

    A Missouri Tea Party group is rallying its troops to help embattled small businesses in Ferguson rebound in the wake of the turmoil there by staging a "buycott" and lobbying local government to provide a tax holiday. The move, organized by the St. Louis Tea Party Coalition is designed to encourage residents in the surrounding West County area to make a shopping pilgrimage to the West Florissant shopping districts of Ferguson and Dellwood to pump much-needed revenue into the small businesses of the area. Many of the businesses of the area have been hard-hit as a result of the rioting...

    Only 22% of Americans have confidence in the truth of what they read see or hear from the mainstream media (MSM). The hundreds of stories that have been twisted and distorted by the MSM over the past few years have made this number unavoidable. The latest reminder of the MSM’s love of lies and half-truths is the Washington Post’s (WaPo) twisted reportage of Ferguson Missouri riots. The WaPo sent nine reporters to Ferguson Missouri to discover what they could about Police Officer Darren Wilson. Officer Wilson is the surviving victim of a savage attack by Michael Brown which was stopped...

Chief Delmore revealed that he is not a fan of what another officer described as Capt. Johnson’s “hug a looter” attempts to bring criminals under control by directing St. Louis County Police to “remain uninvolved” on the night “the rioting and looting began again.” The essence of Delmore’s criticism, however, is directed at Capt. Johnson’s claim that “there was no reason to release”...

All this has major prophetic implications. The umbrella group for Islamist militias calling itself Al-Fajr (The Dawn) of Libya said it has also taken hold of other locations in the capital controlled by the rival militias, drawing to a close one chapter in a prolonged confrontation between the Islamist-allied militia, largely from the city...

Children as young as 11 were routinely raped by gangs of mainly Pakistani men, but the Chief Executive of the Council Martin Kimber has not fired a single council officer over the affair. Mr Kimber refused to comment on the claim that the politician ultimately responsible for the failures of the Children's Services department is now the Police Commissioner in the area.

Although the beheading and slaughtering of Yazidis and Christians, including women, children and babies, did not cause too much of an outrage in political circles and the mainstream media, it took the beheading of James Foley, a freelance journalist, to get the “b” words rolling.

We are the Communist Party USA.” No, it’s not Socialism, which is a watered down version of Communism. Real Communism is the kind that was practiced in the former Soviet Union. It can be found in Cuba and North Korea where the state controls all power and property,and the people have none.

    Government dependency is on the rise, with more than half of all Americans relying on the government for survival. While the Obama administration is broadening eligibility, US citizens increasingly also say they prefer it this way. Americans’ self-reliability has been decreasing as eligibility for Medicaid, food stamps, earned income tax credit, work pay tax credit and unemployment benefits have broadened since 2009 to allow more US citizens to enjoy them. More than half of the US population – 165 million of 308 million Americans – is now dependent on the state in some form. Of these, 107 million Americans rely...

    The only thing separating a studio audience from a couple having sex on stage is a “soundproof box”.  Then the couple emerges from their connubial enclave to sit on couches and talk about the experience—and their relationship—with a panel of “experts”.  AMC, purveyor of classic movies, picked up the show “Sex Box” from the UK for its We tv unit. There’s nothing classic, or classy, about Sex Box.  It’s crass, craven, and frankly, disgusting.  What kind of person would sit in that studio audience?  How does the cast “warm up” the audience when they are sitting there vicariously focused on a couple...

The Muslim complained loudly online and the city and Sneakers Bistro relented, removing the bacon sign while loudly proclaiming they don’t get involved in politics. Who knew bacon was a political issue? The mayor of Winooski, Kathrine Decarreau, believes the “cool part of living in a diverse community is that it’s...

    I'm attempting to understand why some of the descendants of the people Christopher Columbus called "Indians" say they are ashamed to be called "redskins". The only explanation I can think of is they are ashamed that they are not white or perhaps they are simply ashamed of their heritage. In the 1950's many black Americans were ashamed of their color. They tried to bleach their skin and straighten their hair to look more like white people. In the early sixties someone discovered a statement abolitionist John Sweat Rock had made a century earlier. Rock said, "black is beautiful". Many black...

    New Yorkers are preparing for "doomsday" in a way that doesn't involve guns, bunkers, or earmarked pages in Revelations, LiveScience reports. Survivalists at one group, NYC Preppers, are planning to safely flee the city in case of a natural disaster or terrorist attack. "They simply don't have the space to build a bunker," says sociologist Anna Bounds, who is studying the survivalists. She says they devise escape routes (including by kayak), keep the car filled with gas, and figure out which home appliances are likely to work in different emergencies. They also take long walks to practice carrying a "bug-out"...

    As hundreds of Ferguson, Mo., residents attend the funeral of teenager Michael Brown on Monday, the New York Times has come under fire for claiming that Brown, who was shot and killed by a white police officer on Aug. 9, was "no angel." Here's the offending passage: Michael Brown, 18, due to be buried on Monday, was no angel, with public records and interviews with friends and family revealing both problems and promise in his young life. Shortly before his encounter with Officer Wilson, the police say he was caught on a security camera stealing a box of cigars, pushing...

    When does media reporting become actual collusion with selling propaganda? Perhaps the story of Mike Brown’s autopsy will provide food for thought. We suspected from the outset the Parks and Crump version of the Mike Brown autopsy was likely just a propaganda ploy to sell their narrative. We knew New York Times reporter Frances Robles was sympathetic to their scheme because she was similarly predisposed in 2012 with the Trayvon Martin narrative. Frances Robles arrived in Ferguson Missouri the morning of the autopsy Aug 17th. Perhaps she and forensic pathologist Dr. Baden flew in together. After all, they departed the...

    "Egalitarianism" sounds so good, progressive, enlightened and compassionate. And above all, of course, caring. But in reality the opposite of all those adjectives is closer to the truth of egalitarianism. For the only way to make all the individuals of a society equal is to reduce everyone to the lowest common denominator. Recently it was the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War in 1914. Three years later, in 1917, the Russian Revolution took place. This should remind us that in the past almost 100 years during which attempts at equalisation were repeatedly made, everybody - except...

Their attempts to destigmitize the term slut by celebrating the sort of behavior that gets a girl labeled a slut says a lot about these folks. There’s nothing worse than “slut shaming,” which appears to be little more than calling a slut what she is. Interestingly one of the signs at the slut walk declared “all cops are bastards.” Apparently it’s acceptable to “slut shame” the mothers of police officers. None of the feminists saw the hypocrisy of such a...

Over the past five years, Scotland has been better off than the UK as a whole to the tune of Ł1,600 per person. And we’ve generated more tax per head than the rest of the UK in each of the last 33 years. In fact, we are richer per head than the UK, France and even Japan. It is hard to imagine that any other nation has been as well-placed as wealthy...

    A small but significant story comes from Italy. Adel Smith, born in Alexandria, Egypt, son of an Italian father and Egyptian mother and living in Ofena, a little town in the central Italian region of Abruzzi, has just died at 54 from a serious illness. The reason why he is remembered is his constant attacks against Christianity, which this Muslim man probably believed to be an easy target in the current secularist climate. In 2003, his intolerance for Christian objects in public buildings prompted him to request the removal of all Christian symbols, including crosses, from the primary school...

    <p>Both sides lined up pretty much as expected over the death of Michael Brown in Ferguson. Social media is full of people on both sides making presumptions, and believing what they want to believe.</p> <p>But it’s the white folks that don’t understand what this is all about. You see, Ferguson wasn’t about Michael Brown specifically, just like the outrage over Trayvon Martin’s death wasn’t about Trayvon Martin specifically. Let me put it as simply as I can for you.</p>

    The Latin means "He who transplants, sustains" In a controversial move, the leadership of the Connecticut Bar Association lobbied to pass the highly restrictive gun law pushed by Governor Malloy.   The move sparked opposition within the body.   From the courant.com, a paper that also pushed hard for the controversial gun laws: "Why is our bar association taking a position on a matter that has nothing to do with the practice of law?" Hartford lawyer and former Democratic state Chairman John Droney asked in an email typical of hundreds of others inspired by a debate that has continued now for...

    Release of 'Al Qaeda Lady' Aafia Siddiqui for James Foley did not originate with the Islamic State, but part of a far-left campaign in America first The brutal Islamic State (IS) terrorists, who wanted Aafia Siddiqui aka ‘Lady al-Qaeda’ swapped for decapitated photojournalist James Foley, are merely the latest in a long line of fanatics seeking the release of a woman caught redhanded in Afghanistan with detailed plans on how to kill the masses by spreading Ebola, and with dirty bombs and chemical weapons that would somehow spare children while killing off adults. She also had two pounds of highly...

    Last week, Captain Ron Johnson of the Missouri State Highway Patrol was chosen by Governor Jay Nixon to “coordinate law enforcement agencies” in their response to rioting and civil unrest after the shooting of Michael Brown by Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson. “I’m a man first, a black man second, I’m a husband, I’m a father, I’m a son. A trooper? There’s a lot of things I am before I’m a trooper, said Johnson to the assembled news networks. He sounded very much like AG Eric Holder who, upon arriving in Ferguson for no apparent reason other than political race...

    As soft television advertisements now hypocritically portray US House of Representatives Democrat incumbent Patrick Murphy as the best friend a Treasure Coast family ever had, an outstanding analysis of the young single man presents an appalling revelation of who and what he really is. A staggering statistic shows that after taking office, Murphy’s yearly net worth jumped from $205,682 to $3,185,011, an unbelievable increase of 1,449% while in comparison, the American citizen’s median yearly income features a net worth decline of MINUS-0.94%. According to outstanding research and source work done by ballotpedia.org, Murphy now ranks as the “102nd wealthiest representative...

    Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon (D) declined to back the prosecutor in the case involving the shooting of an unarmed black teenager in Ferguson, Mo. that has touched off nationwide unrest. African-American leaders in Missouri have criticized St. Louis County Prosecutor Bob McCulloch’s handling of the case, arguing that he is inclined to side with law enforcement officials because he has received campaign contributions from police groups and has said publicly that his father was a cop who was killed in the line of duty. Appearing on CNN’s “State of the Union” Sunday, Nixon declined to directly support McCulloch for the...

    A jewelry store in Little Saigon, Orange County California, has become a magnet  for robbers.   In 2012, there was an attempted robbery in which one of the robbers was shot.  In 2013, several shots were fired at a thief who fought with the store owner, and escaped with a $9,000 watch.   Yesterday, 21 August, 2014, another robbery attempt ended in gunfire as a store employee drove off two robbers who had smashed a display case.  From ocregister.com: Two men wearing ski-type masks and hooded sweatshirts entered the store, used a hammer to break glass on a display case and...

    Is your daughter a victim of male oppression? Blame Aladdin – as well as The Little Mermaid, Pocahontas, The Lion King and Toy Story 2. Disney cartoons and other G-rated children’s movies are full of “gendered sexuality,” subjecting women to the male “objectifying gaze,” as “heterosexuality is constructed through hetero-romantic love relationships as exceptional, powerful, magical, and transformative.” These were the conclusions of Women’s Studies professors Karin Martin and Emily Kazyak in their 2009 research paper, “Hetero-Romantic Love and Heterosexiness in Children’s G-Rated Films.” The sociologists examined “all the G-rated films grossing $100 million dollars or more between 1990 and...
