  • How brutal murders and fear kept a town silent. MS-13 is like no other gang

    Despite its international reputation for hacking up victims with machetes – sometimes brazenly leaving the bloodied, mangled corpses in the open – the street gang MS-13 slipped into Mendota relatively unnoticed.

    WSJ ^ | 23 Sep 2018 | Shelby Steele
    Even before President Trump’s election, hatred had begun to emerge on the American left—counterintuitively, as an assertion of guilelessness and moral superiority. At the Women’s March in Washington the weekend after Mr. Trump’s inauguration, the pop star Madonna said, “I have thought an awful lot of blowing up the White House.” Here hatred was a vanity, a braggadocio meant to signal her innocence of the sort of evil that, in her mind, the White House represented. (She later said the comment was “taken wildly out of context.”) For many on the left a hateful anti-Americanism has become a self-congratulatory lifestyle....

    A new academic year is upon us and, already, the world of Higher Education is being true to form.For example, the University of Maryland-College Park created a new “diversity” group intended to carve out a “safe space” for those white students who are interested in sharing their reflections on their encounters with “racial and ethnic minorities.” The school assigned to the group quite the catchy label: “White Awake.”According to Campus Reform, a watchdog site, this “support group” will assist white students who “sometimes feel uncomfortable and confused before, during, or after interactions with racial and ethnic minorities.”According to the...

    Former Minneapolis cop's behavior before shooting death of Australian woman raised concerns, court filings say. (Full title). ... The former Minneapolis police officer charged in the shooting death of Justine Ruszczyk Damond once put a gun to a driver’s head during a traffic stop and sometimes ignored calls, according to court filings indicating that psychiatrists and training officers voiced concerns about his fitness for duty. The revelations surfaced after defense attorneys filed a motion Wednesday seeking to dismiss murder and manslaughter charges against Mohamed Noor, who is accused of shooting Damond in July 2017 after she dialed 911 to report...

    PJ Media ^ | 08/30/2018 | Tyler O' Neill
    On Tuesday morning, President Donald Trump tweeted the results of a PJ Media investigation into Google News results about bias on Alphabet's search engine giant. Mainstream media outlets attacked Trump's suggestion as a "conspiracy theory," but there is reason to think tech giants like Google, Facebook, and Amazon are biased against conservatives."Google search results for 'Trump News' shows only the viewing/reporting of Fake New Media," the president tweeted. "In other words, they have it RIGGED, for me & others, so that almost all stories & news is BAD. Fake CNN is prominent. Republican/Conservative & Fair Media is shut out....

    National Review ^ | 8-29-18 | David French
    (Skip) The resulting sense of isolation and lack of collective action renders them [conservatives] increasingly vulnerable, reinforces the sense that one has to keep his head down to survive, and builds in the Left a false sense of unanimity that only reinforces their view that all sensible people share their views. Progressive activists interpret silence as agreement, and the lack of dissent only spurs more activism. It takes real moral courage to break the isolation, declare your beliefs, and seek to organize like-minded conservatives (and sympathetic liberals). It also happens to be the single most effective way of breaking groupthink...

    In the competition of ideas, you can't win the game if you're not on the playing field. That's why Silicon Valley bigwigs' stubborn refusal to put business above their own personal partisan biases doesn't just rankle. It reeks. Equal access to social media is not just about sharing food pics, pet videos, makeup tutorials and travelogues. It's about ensuring the ability to disseminate and distribute political speech on the world's biggest platforms. Although I started in the metro newspaper industry in 1992, my years as an independent conservative blogger and internet entrepreneur have been the most journalistically enriching. I launched...

    More Google employees are blowing the whistle about intimidation, discrimination, and dogma at the company following the firing of viewpoint diversity advocate James Damore. Breitbart News’ interview series, Rebels of Google, has revealed an atmosphere of profound fear at the company, in which employees who challenge Google’s hyper-progressive narratives face bullying and ostracization from co-workers, and frequently find themselves added to blacklists aimed at destroying peoples’ careers both inside and outside Google. Our last interviewee even described an incident in which someone was punched for expressing a contrary viewpoint. In our latest interview, current Google employee (alias “Gordon”) reveals more...

    The post went up quietly on Facebook’s internal message board last week. Titled “We Have a Problem With Political Diversity,” it quickly took off inside the social network. “We are a political monoculture that’s intolerant of different views,” Brian Amerige, a senior Facebook engineer, wrote in the post, which was obtained by The New York Times. “We claim to welcome all perspectives, but are quick to attack — often in mobs — anyone who presents a view that appears to be in opposition to left-leaning ideology.” Since the post went up, more than 100 Facebook employees have joined Mr. Amerige...

    Jiggs McDonald, NHL Hall of Fame broadcaster speaking in Ontario, says: "I am truly perplexed that so many of my friends are against another mosque being built in Toronto . I think it should be the goal of every Canadian to be tolerant regardless of their religious beliefs Thus the mosque should be allowed, in an effort to promote tolerance." “That is why I also propose that two nightclubs be opened next door to the mosque; thereby promoting tolerance from within the mosque. We could call one of the clubs, which would be gay, "The Turban Cowboy," and the other,...

    A dean at the University of Georgia apologized after calling a Republican gubernatorial candidate a “nice guy” and receiving “racism” and “privilege”-related backlash on Twitter. UGA journalism and mass communication dean Charles Davis congratulated Georgia politician Brian Kemp on winning the state’s GOP primary, but deleted the remark after backlash, according to Campus Reform. “I went to high school with GOP guv candidate [Brian Kemp],” Davis said initially. “We played YMCA ball from childhood. Politics be damned. He is a nice guy, always was. Kind to a fault. He’s a friend, always has been, and will be when we’re old(er)...

    I am a strong advocate for holding liberals to the same rules they hold everyone else to. Far too often we see conservatives hammered for something they did or said, even if it’s taken out of context, and hounded from the public stage because an angry liberal mob was pointed in their direction for no other reason than the left’s desire for a scalp. While it is satisfying to claim one of theirs after they claim, or try to claim, one of ours, it’s a sad game that ends with everyone losing.This game is nothing new, but it has gotten...

    The Federalist ^ | 7-18-18 | Stephen Roberts
    When politicians argue that we should not 'legislate morality,' they are engaging in a theater of the absurd. Christians are watching with growing concern as U.S. senators increasingly employ anti-Christian litmus tests against judicial nominees and political appointees. Last year, Democrat Sen. Dianne Feinstein declaring to then-nominee Amy Coney Barrett that “the dogma lives loudly within you,” referring to her strong Catholic faith. As John Daniel Davidson recently argued in the Federalist, we can surely expect the same treatment for another devout Catholic — Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Davidson and others rightly contend that such a litmus test is...

It brought countless sufferings without the realization of such… The Arabian nightmare has come to the West. It has come invisibly and struck it like an evil curse. It subdued Western people gradually - through arsons, sexual violence, “Salafi” vice squad and...

    “With respect to John H. Schnatter," the board of directors at Papa John’s says “Papa John” Schnatter will no longer have a work space at the company headquarters in the wake of his latest controversy. On Sunday, Papa John’s International, Inc. issued a press release stating that the company will be terminating a sublease agreement with Schnatter, which had allowed him the use of office space within the building. The decision came following the board’s previous actions toward terminating Schnatter’s “founders agreement,” and removing his likeness from marketing materials after he admitted to using the N-word during a conference call...

    The Federalist ^ | July 10, 2018 | John Daniel Davidson
    The American Left equates sincere religious faith with bigotry. That’s why Kavanaugh will face a religious test from Senate Democrats in his confirmation hearings. n his remarks Monday night upon accepting President Trump’s nomination to the Supreme Court, Brett Kavanaugh said this: “My judicial philosophy is straightforward. A judge must be independent, and must interpret the law, not make the law. A judge must interpret statutes as written, and a judge must interpret the Constitution as written, informed by history and tradition and precedent.” You’d think that would be enough to settle the question of whether Kavanaugh is fit to...
  • Dispatches From The 'Tolerant' Left's War On Trump Supporters

    07/10/2018 7:30:52 AM PDT · by DeweyCA · 14 replies
    Breitbart recently started compiling what it characterizes as "acts of media-approved violence and harassment against Trump supporters." The list is now up to 258 — and climbing fast. So far this month, Breitbart counts more than two dozen incidents of threats, intimidation and violence against Trump officials and supporters, or mainstream journalists excusing such actions. That's likely just scratching the surface, since no doubt many abuses go unreported. The left defends such actions as justified because of Trump's policies or his actions. The truth is, this is how extremists on the left always respond to politicians and policies they disagree...

    Since President Trump’s election, journalists, political scientists and others from across the United States and around the world have visited our little southern Ohio town, population 6,600, to study the natives. Naturally, patronizing local eateries at breakfast or lunchtime is usually part of their itinerary. Some have told me later that, during their interviews, they went out of their way to identify themselves as liberals who have little use for our president. To their credit, they wanted to be honest about who they were and what they were doing. They were sometimes treated with a degree of skepticism, but without...
