    Jane Fonda’s birthday wish was to be arrested during a Fire Drill Fridays protest. Her wish was granted Friday. She was handcuffed and led away from her fellow climate alarmists as they sang Happy Birthday to her. Fonda’s 82nd birthday is Saturday. It was her fifth arrest since moving to Washington, D.C. to organize weekly protests.Ms. Fonda appeared very happy as she was taken away by the police. She even stopped and turned around to say something to her people – the police officer patiently accommodated her – before turning back around and continuing on to the police vehicle....
  • Petition for the Recall of Governor Ralph Northam

    12/12/2019 11:41:03 PM PST · by Farcesensitive · 39 replies
    Today we are faced with the possible destruction of our God given and constitutionally protected rights in the Commonwealth of Virginia. But we are not going to back down, we are not going to quietly submit, and instead fight back using every means at our disposal. The Virginia State Constitution provides a means to recall an elected official, even the Governor, for a trial in the Circuit Court, determining if the official has violated their oath of office. The Virginia State Constitution is very clear, in Article 13 it states- That a well regulated militia, composed of the body of...

    Former Senator and Secretary of State John Kerry (D-Mass.) is launching a new bipartisan coalition of world leaders and celebrities to push for an active strategy against climate change on Sunday. Dubbed "World War Zero," the activist group's goal is to unite "unlikely allies with one common mission: making the world respond to the climate crisis the same way we mobilized to win World War II," according to its website. Headlining the group are former presidents Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter, former governors Arnold Schwarzenegger and John Kasich, Leonardo DiCaprio, Sting and Ashton Kutcher, the New York Times reports.

    The 136th edition of one of college football's oldest rivalries, the Harvard-Yale game, was disrupted by a couple of hundred students who stormed the field at halftime to protest climate change, delaying the start of the second half.The hour-long delay meant that the game, played at the Yale Bowl, finished in near darkness as the stadium has no lights installed. After two overtimes, Yale prevailed 50-43. Make no mistake: this ain't your granddaddy's Ivy League.ESPN: In a statement, the Ivy League referred to the protest as "regrettable." Yale said that while it "stands firmly for the right to free...

    CUMBERLAND Kenneth Lloyd wants to buy the Negro Mountain signs, which disappeared from Garrett County roads earlier this year, and install them in his front yard. Negro Mountain occupies a 30-mile stretch of the Alleghenies from Deep Creek Lake north to the Casselman River in Pennsylvania. The ridge in Garrett County reaches 3,075 feet at its peak, and in Somerset County, Pennsylvania, marks the highest point in the state. The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration earlier this year removed four Negro Mountain signs two from Interstate 68 and two from U.S. Alternate Route 40. Im highly...
  • London Commuters Have Had Enough Of Climate Change Activists

    Climate change activists calling themselves “Extinction Rebellion” have been punishing London commuters for the past ten days. The stated goal of the protest was to “peacefully shut down all roads into Westminster in Central London and non-violently disrupt the government until our leaders agree to TAKE EMERGENCY ACTION NOW.” Today, things got decidedly less peaceful when a handful of activists climbed on top of a commuter train in the midst of the morning rush hour. People who were trying to get to work dragged the protesters off the train. From the BBC: Extinction Rebellion activists climbed on to trains...
  • HOW COLLECTIVISTS USE THE DIAMOND TACTIC TO SWAY PUBLIC MEETINGS AND HOW TO THWART THEM

    01/16/2011 8:42:35 AM PST · by combat_boots · 96 replies · 4+ views
    In the 1960s, I came across a small training manual distributed by the Communist Party that showed how a small group of people as few as four could dominate a much larger group and sway the outcome of any action taken by that group. It was called the Diamond Technique. The principle is based on the fact that people in groups tend to be effected by mass psychology. They derive comfort and security from being aligned with the majority, especially if controversy or conflict is involved. Even if they do not like what the majority is doing, if...

    Georgia Democrat Stacey Abrams is helping launch a Majority Rules initiative that aims to equip and mobilize more than two million women for political activism, reports said. Abrams, a runner-up in last years gubernatorial race in Georgia, told an audience in Atlanta on Sunday that she does not follow the rules. As women, we are taught there are certain rules we have to follow. We are taught that its our responsibility to meekly accept the outcome and to trust the rules as they were written down. I dont, she said.

    Walmart said Tuesday it will discontinue all sales of handgun ammunition and sales of short-barrel rifle ammunition that can be used with military-style weapons, following two horrific shootings at Walmart stores this summer. It will also stop all handgun sales in Alaska, marking its complete exit from the handguns category. The biggest retailer in the world also is asking customers at Walmart and Sams Club to no longer openly carry firearms in stores, in states where open carry is allowed, unless they are authorized law enforcement officers. Open carry legislation is currently on the books in more than 26 states,...

    A group known as The Climate Mobilization, which has called for a World War II-style mobilization to combat climate change and is aligned with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Sen. Bernie Sanders, is criticizing American media outlets for allowing climate deniers to express their views. As such, the group wants media to ban them in an effort to silence all opposition to climate change rhetoric. Some media outlets are sacrificing the future of our planet for the sake of appearing objective, Margaret Klein Salamon, founder and executive director of The Climate Mobilization, said in a news release Saturday. This idea...

    Recording events from public land shouldn't be a crime. Yet when a woman in Utah, standing by a public road, filmed farmworkers pushing a cow with a bulldozer, the farmer drove up to her and said, "You cannot videotape my property." Soon the police came and local prosecutors charged her with "agricultural operation interference." They dropped the charges several months later since she was on public land. But what if she'd posed as a farmworker, got a job on the farm and then secretly recorded what she saw? Increasingly, activists do that. More than a hundred such undercover investigations have...

    The first weekend in July, the National Education Association (NEA) held its annual Representative Assembly in Houston, an assembly consisting of nearly 7,000 delegates. The National Education Association is a progressive political activist organization that masqueradeser, I mean, identifies as an educational organization. . . . . . . . Read these New Business Items just passed by the NEA, and see if you believe the NEA honors its Code of Ethics: The NEA vigorously opposes all attacks on the right to choose and stands on the fundamental right to abortion under Roe v. Wade. The NEA will immediately call...

    In New York City public schools, students can choose their classes, their sports, and their genders! Starting this fall, Schools Chancellor Richard Carranza is making the Big Apple an even bigger news story by radically changing the city's policy on registered names, dress codes, bathrooms, locker rooms, and athletics. He says this is his way of celebrating Pride month. But "proud" is the last word most parents would use to describe the news. In this new Wild West of gender identity, Carranza is giving the green light to everything from unofficial name changes to unisex school uniforms. "Schools are safe...

    Our defeat was all but inevitable, yet the transgender activists still showed up in matching shirts and waved multicolored flags. Their speakers outnumbered ours 4 to 1, but they still hissed and muttered ugly names at our side while we spoke. We had gathered for the Arlington County School Boards meeting on June 18. For four months, the Arlington Parent Coalition had worked tirelessly to get our liberal school board and administrators to reconsider or delay the implementation of policies that would expand accommodations for transgender-identified students. Those policies were passed four years ago during the summer, when nobody was...

    In his History of Sexuality, Foucault noted that it was only in the 19th century that we began to define people by their desires. Thats when homosexual became a personage, a type of life, a morphology. Foucault yes, that Foucault thought this reductive and distracting. What would he say now, I wonder? Consider all the additional personages that have appeared in the last few decades. By no means an exhaustive list, these include transgender, pansexual, bisexual, asexual, demisexual, neutrois, agender, non-binary, polysexual, polyamorous, genderqueer, and genderfluid. Many have their own flags an interesting trend in itself. And...

    Back in the day, I remember reading, the Palestinian leader Yassir Arafat had a problem. What to do to cool off all his guerrilla fighters once they were ensconced in a camp in Lebanon? The answer: get them wives. He was facing the problem with all political movements, especially lefty movements, once they have reached their goals. How do you get the activists to go home? What about the black civil-rights activists after the 1960s civil rights acts? What about the feminists after girls became the majority of college students? And now, what about gays, what with gay marriage and...

    Recently, California Gov. Gavin Newsom who makes former Gov. Jerry Brown look like a conservative declared that the national Republican Party is headed for the waste bin of history because of its policies. This from one who wants universal (taxpayer-supported) health care for undocumented migrants in California and taxpayer-supported preschool for all 3-year-olds by the same public school system that is failing elementary and high school students, with no solution for the many homeless in cities of the Golden State. California can be saved from the progressives seeking the Democratic presidential nomination by broadening the base of commonsense...
