    The daughter of former President Ronald Regan and First Lady Nancy Davis has come out swinging in defense of Christine Blasey Ford, the woman accusing Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault. In a bombshell op-ed for the Washington Post, Patti Davis detailed her own experience with sexual assault, claiming she had been raped by a music executive nearly 40 years ago. Davis was joined with other high-profile figures, such as Alyssa Milano and Ashley Judd, and journalist Thomas Roberts, in sharing their stories of abuse and explaining why they did not report them or come forward at the time.

    Paul McCartney slams Trump in new song: 'We've got a mad captain sailing this boat' By Aris Folley - 09/15/18 10:48 PM EDT Paul McCartney revealed in a recent interview that he took aim at President Trump in his new solo album, dubbing him the "mad captain" in one of his songs. During an interview with BBC published Thursday, the former Beatles bandmate said he took swipes at several climate-change deniers, including Trump, in a track, titled “Despite Repeated Warnings,” on his new album, “Egypt Station,” which was released earlier this month. The track includes verses like “despite repeated warnings...

    This is a first for me. Kaepernick and the kids who have everything ... how did we go from when I was a young kid, to today's kids who have everything and seem to be hard pressed to find anything worth while. A spoiled generation... 2 generations. Bear with me while I tell you what I had growing up, and look at today's kids. My mother died when I was 4 and my father was in the war and I was raised by my grandmother. She lost her husband early in the flu epidemic, and she lost her daughter, my...
  • Jim Brown to blacks: Take 'responsibility,' don't blame Trump

    National Football League legend Jim Brown proclaimed on Tuesday that the black community must take ownership of its problems and struggles – rather than blame President Donald Trump. These comments come a week after the NFL great criticized professional football players who disrespect the flag and their country by not standing for the National Anthem – when he insisted that he would never kneel while the national tribute before games was being played. Now, Brown wants the blacks to show more accountability for the decisions they make and the predicaments they are in so that they will have less hardships...
  • Brown researcher first to describe rapid-onset gender dysphoria

    Brown University ^ | August 22, 2018
    PROVIDENCE, R.I. [Brown University] -- For individuals with gender dysphoria, the conflict between experienced gender identity and sex observed at birth produces significant emotional distress. Until recently, it was unusual for a teen to report initial feelings of gender dysphoria during or after puberty without childhood symptoms. Clinicians have reported that this kind of gender dysphoria is on the rise, particularly for patients whose sex was observed to be female at birth. Additionally, the numbers of adolescents seeking care for gender dysphoria has increased dramatically. It is unknown why these changes are occurring. This month, a Brown University researcher published...

    Mr. Jimenez, a model, has appeared in ads for Levi's, DKNY and Aldo, but he is anything but a conventional pretty face. His steeply raked cheekbones, dreadlocks and jet-colored eyes, suggest a background that might be Mongolian, American Indian or Chinese. In fact he is Colombian by birth, a product of that country's mixed racial heritage, and he fits right in with the melting-pot aesthetic of the downtown scene. It is also a look that is reflected in the latest youth marketing trend: using faces that are ethnically ambiguous. Ad campaigns for Louis Vuitton, YSL Beauty and H&M stores have...

    White farmers are being murdered and thrown off their land in massive numbers at the behest of their government. There is mass starvation in Venezuela. People have to eat their cats and dogs just to stay alive. In Myannmar, they're murdering Christians. They're also mass murdering Christians in India, as well as Sikhs, Muslims, Dalits, Assamese, Bodos, Manipuris, Dalits, and others. China is rounding up Muslims and forcing them into concentration camps, where they disappear, reminiscent of the Nazi Holocaust against the Jews. They're also burning down churches and persecuting Christians. They previously expelled the Buddhists from Tibet. And throughout...

    Why are Americans so suffocatingly weird about their kids nowadays? In a 2016 Pew survey, only 30 percent of parents said kids should be allowed to play in a public park unsupervised before they’re 13 years old, though the country’s streets have never been safer. And yet, this style of care doesn’t seem to benefit anyone involved: not kids, not society, and definitely not the parents themselves. Caregivers cling to their charges, afraid of everything and nothing in particular. We have to save the kids, but if pressed on why or from what or what are you doing, we can’t...

    There is no longer time for false civility while our state and country are being destroyed by evil doers. Evil is everywhere “Government has three primary functions. It should provide for military defense of the nation. It should enforce contracts between individuals. It should protect citizens from crimes against themselves or their property. When government—in pursuit of good intentions tries to rearrange the economy, legislate morality, or help special interests, the cost come in inefficiency, lack of motivation, and loss of freedom. Government should be a referee, not an active player.”—Milton Freidman Whether the topic is “Democratic Socialism,” or priest...

    If I wanted to destroy an enemy society, and had a long-term focus, wanted to do it stealthily, and effectively, to make the society destroy itself and the ability to defend itself, I would do the following: 1. I would destroy the religious ideals that built the country and held it together, allowing it to thrive and be exceptional. In short, I would destroy Christianity in the West. 2. I would destroy the family, the fabric of society. I would tear apart the nuclear family, that produced stable children, future contributors to the nation’s wealth and power. I would...

    “I realized coming here,”....“that it’s not that Hollywood was persecuting the Church as much as it was the Church was committing suicide in Hollywood. Big difference. I discovered Hollywood isn’t anti-Christian as much as it is anti-bad art. The problem is that we’re giving Hollywood schlock.” Barbara Nicolosi has worked in Hollywood since 1996 as a writer, producer, and production company executive. "We have a misconception now that we need to make propaganda for God as a response to the secular world. It’s triumphalistic, rah-rah, our side is the winning team. It doesn’t bring anyone over at all. The response...

    Dear son, You're still young. Young enough to decide what you want to do with your life with all options on the table. Your life will be your own. Your choices your own. I'm only here to offer my advice, my guidance. As such, I beg you, please never become a police officer. Allow me to explain. When I was a young boy, I held police officers in such high regard that, as corny as it was, I would actually stop and stand at attention and salute them whenever they rolled by in their patrol cars in Rahway. When they...

    I saw my first movie in several years. Death of a Nation by Dinesh D'Souza. It was an advance showing at a local theater. The movie was outstanding, entertaining and well documented as would be expected from D'Souza. I'm sure there will be a lot of Progressive/Democrat heads exploding when the film is in general release. Like many other conservative films you may have to search to find it or as a last resort buy a copy of the DVD if not show locally.

    A CVS customer snub initially characterized as a racial incident now appears to be more complicated than that. An Edgewater resident who was at CVS when a white manager called the police on a black woman after rejecting her coupon, says customer Camilla Hudson was “going off loudly,” refusing to leave, and following the other manager when he went into the employee-only part of the store. On Friday, Hudson, 53, posted on Facebook the now-viral video of CVS employee Morry Matson calling the police to remove her from the CVS Pharmacy at 6150 N. Broadway. “I had the police called...

    Today, Americans have taken so much for granted. We look at our life and think that it is as it has always been. Indeed, it is assumed that the way things are today have always been that way. Yet, the simple and plain truth is that America has changed. Over the last few decades there has been tremendous changes at all levels of American society and culture. For instance, it is a recent phenomenon that restaurants can charge $8 for a cup of coffee. Or, that we have to take a urine sample to get employed. Casual day on Friday,...

    Recording history, whether a community event or a gargantuan cataclysm, is a calling. It is ministering to society by relating facts not fantasy Going from spin to facts, vagueness to specifics and inferences to full quotes. This is part of what it would take to revive journalism. Simple, right? In reality, hardly possible in a world where journalism schools have mostly been redesignated schools of communications, which is a completely different and oppositional field of study. Consider what news writing was intended to be—journaling the occurrences of the day. Keeping a public diary, in a manner of speaking, without personal...

    There are no precise figures on how many Latino Muslims live in the Chicago area, where the population is about 30 percent Latino. But, according to various estimates, the 130 mosques in the city and suburbs are the spiritual home to a small but growing group of converts — Latino Muslims. Some converts from devout Catholic families say they sometimes are faced with skepticism and ignorance from their own relatives: “Oh, what are you an Arab now?” “Why did you join a black religion?” “Did you join ISIS?” “Take that thing off your head.”

    Nevertheless, because of precisely what George Santayana was talking about, we are headed, one unnoticed step at a time, in just that direction It is a no-brainer that we are right now doomed to go through some really bad times. Anybody who tells you anything different is either trying to sell you something or they probably just need to back off on their meds. Nevertheless, Mr. Santayana’s beat-to-death, pure gold adage is about to fall upon us in its full weight because very few around us have even a nodding acquaintance with vital history.

    Disney/ABC, Starbucks, and the NFL should merge, as they are this week’s prime example of how to drive away customers while engaged in absurd CEO virtue signaling. ABC/Disney I never watch television. Its news is a waste of time, with well-groomed, overpaid readers and hokey camera coverage that takes an hour to cover what 10 minutes of a well-written article can better convey. Take the news coverage itself: The EU is falling apart, the talks with North Korea are on and it looks like war will be averted and another country denuclearized, and the Mueller investigation seems more ridiculous than...

    Tbowling alley in my small town in central Pennsylvania. An older man bought me a beer and talked to me while he shot pool. Smoking and drinking in that grungy bowling-alley bar in the seediest part of town, I felt cosmopolitan and mature. I was oblivious to the transaction taking place: by drinking his beer, I was entering into an implicit and unwritten contract in which I was expected to fulfill a sexual obligation. One of my more astute and experienced friends told the man that I had a boyfriend and had no intention of being intimate with him. He...
