    The Daily Signal ^ | October 29, 2017 | Ken McIntyre
    Editor’s note: Amy Swearer’s piece on the harrowing experience of being slipped a date-rape drug prompted an outpouring of response from The Daily Signal’s audience amid the surging #MeToo hashtag on social media for personal stories of sexual assault and harassment. Here’s a sampling. Don’t forget to write us at letters@dailysignal.com.—Ken McIntyreDear Daily Signal: We are indebted to you, Amy Swearer, for fighting to overcome the incident itself and then for being willing to tell your story (“I’m a Conservative Who was Roofied by a Stranger.

    I picked up a guy a week or two ago who was in his mid 30s that looked a little scruffy, covered in tats and a very wild and woolly beard. He wanted to go to a low-budget, no-name, mom-and-pop motel a few miles away. He looked a little sketchy, but I noticed that he had the eagle and anchor Marine Corps emblem tattooed on his forearm, and I said, “Marine Corps, huh?”He said, “Yes Sir, two tours in Afghanistan.” As I have said before, I always thank a member of our military whenever I encounter them, and I...

    NY Post ^ | 06/27/17 | Emily Smith
    The specter of a $100 million libel suit scared CNN into retracting a poorly reported story that slimed an ally of President Trumps and forcing out the staffers responsible for it, The Post has learned. The cable networks coverage of Trump transition-team member Anthony Scaramucci came amid federal scrutiny of corporate parent Time Warners pending purchase by AT&T and the widespread belief among media execs that CNN President Jeff Zucker cant survive a merger. CNN immediately caved after Scaramucci, a financier and frequent network guest, cried foul and threatened to take legal action, sources said Tuesday. Scaramucci got...

    The whole worlds eyes are on the far east, wondering how a Boeing 777 can just disappear without a trace. Malaysia Air Flight 370 took off from Kuala Lumpur at 12:43am this past Saturday morning and has yet to be located. Flying is the safest mode of transportation that exists today, so the disappearance of an airplane like this is really sobering. I heard the following story firsthand from the travel agent involved. He is an avid DansDeals follower that Im friends with. He sent me the unedited exchange that follows and I made the necessary edits to protect the...

    Dear Friend, As our campaign has gained momentum, our opponents have gotten more and more desperate. But now theyve stooped to a new low by attacking my family, my education, and my personal story playing politics with the journey that has been my life. Mine is a story about a teenage single mother who struggled to keep her young family afloat. Its a story about a young woman who was given a precious opportunity to work her way up in the world. Its a story about resiliency, and sacrifice, and perseverance. And youre damn right its a true story.

    Archdiocese of Washington ^ | 1/15/2014 | Msgr. Charles Pope
    In the First Book of Samuel which we are reading now in daily Mass, we see are rather stunning portrait of poor parenting and poor priestly leadership in the person of of High Priest of the Sanctuary at Shiloh, Eli. Consider this line from the Scriptures: Samuel was sleeping in the temple of the LORD where the ark of God was. The LORD called to Samuel, who answered, Here I am. Samuel ran to Eli and said, Here I am. You called me.I did not call you, Eli said. Go back to sleep. ..At that time Samuel was not familiar...

    David Horowitz, author of The Black Book of the American Left and the founder and president of the David Horowitz Freedom Center, has spoken at length about how he was raised by “card-carrying communists” who always “described themselves as progressives.” He followed in their footsteps, becoming one of the founders of the New Left in 1960′s, which he described as an organization “formed by children of communists who wanted to get away from the taint that Stalin had put on (communism), and revive the vision.” So what made the born-and-raised communist become the staunch conservative and defender of American liberties...

    For our latest mission, we recreated the famous "triple dog dare" scene from A Christmas Story on an NYC subway car. Instead of licking a flagpole, our character licked a subway pole. Using a prosthetic tongue with a magnet inside, we were able to get his tongue to appear stuck to the pole, much to the surprise of New Yorkers on the train.

    Pilgrims Progress Published in NWFDaily News Nov 13 2011 Published again in NWFDaily News as "The True Story" Nov 28, 2013 As the story goes the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth Rock in the winter of 1620. Indians taught them how to fish, hunt, and plant corn, bringing forth an abundant harvest giving rise to the first Thanksgiving. That however was not quite true. Indians did indeed help the colonists, but harvests werent bountiful and many died of starvation and disease. The problem lay in the Mayflower Compact, which dictated a form of government whereupon property was communally owned and cultivated...

    nationalreview.com ^ | 24 March, 2013 | Kevin D. Williamson
    Writing about the Black Panthers and gun rights, David Frum begins well which is to say, with a quotation from me but quickly reverts to First Order Frummery. The purpose of having citizens armed with paramilitary weapons is to allow them to engage in paramilitary actions. That sentence is quoted not from the Black Panther manifesto, but from an article published just a few weeks ago in National Review by Kevin Williamson. Before 1965, it would have occurred to precisely nobody that the Second Amendment guaranteed the right to organize private armies independent of the state. The only...

    For those of you that have followed my writings for the past 7 years on my blog, theUndergroundInvestor, you are well aware that I have been advocating conversion of the majority of fiat currency savings into physical gold and physical silver as a means of combating the system of financial enslavement that the bankers have tried to impose upon the people in every country around the world. The bankers are now entering the second phase of their enslavement through the imposition of austerity measures on people that can least afford this imposition. Though we, at SmartKnowledgeU, have been advocating the...

    Obama campaign spokeswoman Jen Psaki acknowledged Thursday that the campaign was no longer pleading ignorance about the story of a man who has appeared in both a super PAC ad and a campaign ad. "No one is denying he was in one of our campaign ads. He was on a conference call telling his story," Psaki told reporters on Air Force One. Missouri steelworker Joe Soptic starred in an Obama campaign ad and participated in a conference call with the campaign in May, as POLITICO reported Wednesday.

    "When I think about what we've done well and what we haven't done well," the president said, "the mistake of my first term - couple of years - was thinking that this job was just about getting the policy right. And that's important. But the nature of this office is also to tell a story to the American people that gives them a sense of unity and purpose and optimism, especially during tough times." Mr. Obama acknowledged the dissonance between others' perception of his strength as an expert orator, and his own. "It's funny - when I ran, everybody said,...
