    Fox News host Tucker Carlson on Tuesday asked if those who say they are victims of sexual assault crimes have an obligation to report them asking if they are “part of the problem” if they don't report the assault. "If there's a rapist on the loose, if you don't tell anybody, if Bernie Madoff rips you off and you don't tell his other investors, you're part of the problem, are you not?” Carlson asked radio host Ethan Bearman. Carlson raised the question in a segment discussing the allegations made against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Christine Blasey Ford, a professor...

    Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) alleged on Wednesday that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh was not truthful with senators earlier this month when he said he never violated grand jury secrecy laws during his time working for Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr.Feinstein, the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, told Politico that she obtained a memo from the National Archives that showed Kavanaugh instructed a colleague in the Starr investigation two decades ago to call reporter Chris Ruddy about matters before the grand jury. Such an action would violate laws that prevent disclosure of grand jury information. Feinstein claimed to Politico...

    A woman not necessarily trying to make a statement about women’s rights with her shirt might actually be getting the message across to more people after getting told to cover up at Dodgers Stadium. Lifelong Dodgers fan Haley Pollock and her boyfriend attended Friday’s home game against the San Diego Padres wearing a shirt with a diagram of uterus on it. The shirt read “NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN.” She was also wearing a pin with a crossed-out swastika

    In this warming world, some parts of the planet are warming much faster than others. The warming is causing large ice bodies to start to melt and move rapidly, in some cases sliding into the ocean. This movement is the topic of a very new scientific study that was just published in the journal Earth and Planetary Science Letters. The Arctic is warming much faster than other parts of the planet and the ice there is showing the signs of rapid warming. This fact has serious consequences. First, melting ice can cause sea levels to rise and inundate coastal areas...
  • 'Distracted boyfriend meme' is sexist, rules Swedish advertising watchdog

    The Local ^ | 8/25/2018
    Sweden's Advertising Ombudsman (RO) has criticized a Stockholm company for sexism after it used a popular meme alongside a recruitment advert. The image, known by online communities as 'Distracted Boyfriend Meme', is based on a stock photo of a man turning away from his appalled girlfriend to look at an attractive woman. Swedish internet service provider Bahnhof used the image alongside a jobs advert; in their take on the meme, the boyfriend was turning away from "your current workplace" to stare at Bahnhof. Sweden's advertising watchdog RO has now ruled that the use of the meme was "gender-discriminatory", both due...

    The 2018 Gun Rights Policy Conference was held at the Chicago O'Hare airport Hyatt Regency this year. I arrived after driving up from Dallas. As usual, the last 30 miles consisted of slow moving traffic. I used a GPS to make the proper turns. There wasn't any real choice of another hotel. The conference rate at the Hyatt wasn't too terrible. $119 with parking included. I expect some state and local taxes will be added to the final bill. The hotel had something new this year. A small "no guns" sign in red on the entrance doors. We were...

    Republicans are performing critical triage to their midterm spending strategy as they seek to hold on to their House majority in a difficult midterm year. The House GOP’s campaign arm pulled the plug on its remaining ad buys last week for the Pittsburgh media market, where Rep. Keith Rothfus (R-Pa.) is desperately fighting to hang on to his seat in a race against Rep. Conor Lamb (D-Pa.). It’s grim news for Rothfus, who has largely been seen as a dead man walking since redistricting left him with a Democratic-leaning district and a difficult opponent in Lamb. For the GOP, it’s...

    September 26, 2018 A tawdry, disgusting, and distasteful week By John David Powell As the Grateful Dead said, what a long, strange trip it's been. And dude, the week is only half-over. I mean, like, there it was: the headline declaring that Bill Cosby, Mr. Jell-O Pudding, America's Dad, will spend the next three to ten years in prison trying to keep from being some bad boy's best girl while wearing the title of Sexually Violent Predator for the rest of his life. Will they make him sew SVP onto the front of his shirt? I received no reply on...

    Michigan Stadium, at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. Photo: Ken Lund. JNS.org – Earlier this month, the Turkish NBA star Enes Kanter published a moving article in Time magazine about how President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s mushrooming tyranny is impacting his own family.“This month, my dad will face trial in Turkey for ‘membership of a terror group,’” the New York Knicks center wrote. “He is a university professor, not a terrorist.”Kanter’s father is among the thousands of Turkish academics who have been purged from their positions by Erdoğan’s regime since the murky coup d’état of July 2016. This clampdown...

    Federal officials will likely reject legal migrants’ requests for visas or green cards if they cannot speak English, says a draft regulation from President Donald Trump’s Department of Homeland Security. “English language proficiency is a skill that also is relevant in determining whether an alien is likely to become a public charge in the future,” says the draft “public charge” regulation. The regulation is intended to help officials exclude migrants who will likely rely on American taxpayers for their health care, welfare, housing, and wages. The draft regulation says: People with the lowest English speaking ability tend to have the...

    "NBC Nightly News" suffered its lowest-rated season ever, according to Nielsen Media Research, but still topped ABC and CBS in the key younger demographic that advertisers covet most. The Lester Holt-anchored program dropped to an average of 8.153 million total viewers per evening, which marks its lowest average since Nielsen began tracking via electronic data in 1991. That was still good enough for second place behind ABC's "World News Tonight" with David Muir, which delivered 8.637 million viewers for the 2017-2018 season. "The CBS Evening News" with Jeff Glor was third with 6.209 million total viewers. NBC did score 1.851...

    American Thinker ^ | 9-26-2018 | Tom Trinko
    Democratic senator Mazie Hirono has it totally wrong when she says we should consider the assault charges against Brett Kavanaugh credible because he doesn't support abortion. ************** The reality is that whether you believe it's due to God or 4,000,000,000 years of evolution or both, women generally want sex as part of a loving relationship, not as some emotion-free hookup. From a purely evolutionary perspective, that's because women invest a lot more in having a baby than men do in making one. Women who had men who stood by them and protected them were more likely to survive pregnancy in...

    A federal judge in San Francisco is asking whether President Trump’s “America first” agenda is camouflage for racial hostility. U.S. District Judge Edward Chen on Tuesday heard arguments over whether the Trump administration should be blocked from rolling back parts of George H.W. Bush-era humanitarian policy that offers foreign nationals U.S. residency from dangerous countries, Bloomberg reported. Roughly 300,000 people from El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua and Sudan could be deported if the Trump administration is successful in overturning sections of the policy, the news outlet noted. Chen noted a memo authored by former Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Deputy Secretary...

    Parents in a Sacramento, California suburban school district were shocked this week to discover that Lt. Gov Gavin Newsom, the Democratic Party candidate for governor in November, is portrayed in a first-grade textbook as a “champion for people’s rights.” The textbook celebrates Newsom alongside such icons as President Abraham Lincoln and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. — apparently for his decision, as mayor of San Francisco, to recognize gay marriages in 2004.

    A San Francisco transit terminal which took nearly 10 years to build and cost more than $2 billion was shut down Tuesday after officials discovered a crack in a support beam. The Salesforce Transit Center had been operating for only a month. The project was financed by land sales, federal stimulus grants, district fees and taxes, bridge tolls, and federal and state funds. Dubbed the “Grand Central of the West,” the terminal was highly anticipated before its opening. Sitting near the heart of downtown, the three-block structure was expected to accommodate 100,000 passengers each weekday, and up to 45 million...

    The Federalist ^ | SEPTEMBER 26, 2018
    Democratic congressional candidate Donna Shalala is struggling to keep up with her Trump-supporting Republican rival in a district that overwhelmingly favored Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election. The 77-year-old Shalala, who served as Department of Health and Human Services secretary for the Clinton administration, was supposed to easily snag a win in Florida’s 27th Congressional District and become the “second-oldest House freshman in history,” but recent polls indicate she’s neck and neck with her Republican opponent, Maria Elvira Salazar. In November 2016, voters in the Miami-based 27th District cast a ballot in favor of Clinton by a margin of...
