    LifeSite, a Christian pro-life news outlet, was allegedly blacklisted by its web host and given just 12 hours to find another host the website, or risk being offline. “LifeSite just received an email at 8:30 p.m. EST from our web-hosting company alerting us that they will be taking our website down within 12 hours, if not sooner,” claimed LifeSite in a statement, Saturday. “We received absolutely no forewarning whatsoever about this decision.” “Our web developer is scrambling right now to set up a possibly-needed temporary solution to keep the website live. However, we’re going to have to go through the...

    In the days before Harvard Law School announced embattled Supreme Court nominee Brett M. Kavanaugh will not teach in Cambridge this January, undergraduates eager to block his return to campus struck on a new strategy: file Title IX complaints against the conservative judge. Over the past week, several students filed formal complaints alleging Kavanaugh’s presence in Cambridge would violate Harvard’s policy prohibiting sexual and gender-based harassment — though several Title IX experts said this strategy was unlikely to succeed. Jacqueline L. Kellogg ’19 — who said she has filed a complaint against Kavanaugh with the University’s Office for Dispute Resolution...

  • BREAKING: Founder of #WalkAway Campaign Brandon Straka ABUSED by Leftists at NYC Camera Shop

    The #WalkAway campaign began on Facebook after a handsome, gay hairdresser from New York named Brandon Straka posted a video last month explaining why he was walking away from the Democrat party. People are leaving the Democrat party in droves because all they have to offer is violence, intolerance, divisiveness and hatred. Brandon Straka’s videos are so popular that he is beginning to get recognized in public. On Thursday, Brandon Straka went into a camera shop to purchase some new supplies when he was abused by leftists working there; they recognized him and refused him service.
  • Final thoughts on the Red Hen’s ousting of Sarah Huckabee Sanders

    The Herald News ^ | June 26, 2018 | Jennifer Rubin, The Washington Post
    After about 48 hours of squawking about the Red Hen’s refusal to serve White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Friday night, followed by a tweet by President Donald Trump inaccurately accusing the restaurant of uncleanliness (people who own health department-cited establishments shouldn’t throw stones), and then also hearing Rep. Maxine Waters , D-Calif., essentially call for mobs to descend upon Trump aides, I’ve had my fill of the topic. Moreover, after all the hand-wringing over the last couple of days, we should refocus on the real issue - the unprecedented racist conduct of a president who has threatened...

    A division of the American Library Association voted unanimously Saturday to strip Laura Ingalls Wilder's name from a major children's literature award over concerns about how the author referred to Native Americans and blacks. The Association for Library Service to Children says the Laura Ingalls Wilder Award will now be known as the Children's Literature Legacy Award. Wilder, who wrote the Little House book series, was the first recipient of the award, which was established in 1954 and intended to honor books published in the U.S. that have had a big impact on children's literature. The Little House series was...

    The growing attempt to personally destroy superstar Kanye West has moved to Detroit where a radio station has banned the superstar’s music. The fallout continues against Kanye West is growing. Case in point, the hashtag #MuteKanye, which is part of a left-wing campaign to silence and marginalize West. In the spirit of that movement, Detroit radio station 105.1 The Bounce has announced that going forward West’s music is blacklisted.
  • China to bar people with bad 'social credit' from planes, trains

    SHANGHAI (Reuters) - China said it will begin applying its so-called social credit system to flights and trains and stop people who have committed misdeeds from taking such transport for up to a year. People who would be put on the restricted lists included those found to have committed acts like spreading false information about terrorism and causing trouble on flights, as well as those who used expired tickets or smoked on trains, according to two statements issued on the National Development and Reform Commission’s website on Friday. Those found to have committed financial wrongdoings, such as employers who failed...
  • Model, first lady: Melania Trump conspicuously absent from magazine covers

    NBC News ^ | 2/21/2018 | Claire Atkinson
    From British GQ to US Vogue, Melania Trump appeared on many magazine covers as a professional model. But since she became first lady, few editors have dared to put her on the front page. Her absence is notable, particularly as the wife of a president who rarely spends a day out of the media spotlight. While cable news outlets have dedicated near wall-to-wall attention to the president and his administration, it's a different story in the magazine world. There's a clear reluctance among editors to put themselves in the cross-hairs of the culture wars. Mostly New York-based editors may fear...

    A former Union High School teacher who in 2011 called homosexuality a "perverted spirit" that "breeds like cancer" has agreed to a three-year suspension of her teaching certificates. The posts on Jenye "Viki" Knox's personal Facebook page eventually caused the special education teacher and faculty adviser to the school's Bible study group to resign. She later filed a federal lawsuit claiming school officials had violated her free speech and religious rights.

    About a year ago I made one of the more risky decisions of my life – one that I knew could hurt my career as an actress. I decided to come out of the conservative closet and admit to my peers that I was a conservative in Hollywood. Yes, hard as it is for some to believe, not everyone in the entertainment industry on the Left Coast is a left-winger. An acquaintance had asked me to write for a right-of-center political magazine. I realized I would be outing myself by doing it, but I ended up writing a few dozen...

    James Woods is a well-known veteran Hollywood actor who, prior to 2013, was seen on the big and small screen numerous times. Things changed in 2013 when Woods became an outspoken critic of then President Obama, which is a big “no-no” in Hollywood. Why? Because being a conservative in Hollywood can cost you jobs, it’s like modern-day McCarthyism and career death sentence. On his blacklisted Hollywood status, Woods tweeted on August 21: “The only reason I express my views is that I have accepted the fact that I’m blacklisted. Also I bought Apple stock in the 80’s…” In 2013, Woods...
  • Silicon Valley escalates its war on white supremacy despite free speech concerns

    08/16/2017 8:06:12 PM PDT · by janetjanet998 · 24 replies
    Silicon Valley significantly escalated its war on white supremacy this week, choking off the ability of hate groups to raise money online, removing them from Internet search engines, and preventing some sites from registering at all. The new moves go beyond censoring individual stories or posts. Tech companies such as Google, GoDaddy and PayPal are now reversing their hands-off approach about content supported by their services and making it much more difficult for “alt-right” organizations to reach mass audiences. But the actions are also heightening concerns over how tech companies are becoming the arbiters of free speech in America. And...

    A music festival that seeks to raise human rights issues in China was blocked from its original venue, a state park in Los Angeles’s Chinatown, following a dispute between the festival’s organizers and a local community leader. George Yu, president of the Chinatown Business Improvement District, said he won’t endorse the Blacklisted Music + Arts Festival being held at the Los Angeles State Historic Park unless the organizers stop calling attention to Tibetan independence, environmental pollution, and forced organ harvesting in China—issues that the Chinese regime considers out of bounds for discussion. The organizers and host of the festival said...

    "Diversity statements" are used by universities in Oregon to weed out conservative and other right-leaning scholars at universities, a new report issued by the Oregon Association of Scholars (OAS) alleges. Per the report, the universities in Oregon (University of Oregon, Oregon State University, Portland State University, and Oregon Health and Science University) use a new kind of litmus test to single out conservative scholars: diversity statements. The report’s executive summary reads, as follows: Oregon colleges and universities have begun to impose requirements for prospective and current faculty to show their commitment to the partisan ideology of "diversity, equity, and inclusion."...

    Members of the media cheered during a screening of the racial horror-comedy film Get Out when the black protagonist murdered an all-white family one-by-one. Conservative film critic Armond White reported the "all-media" audience's reaction on Friday, in his scathing review of the film in National Review. The New York Film Critics Circle removed White from its group after he allegedly made insulting comments about black director Steve McQueen during an annual awards ceremony. He called McQueen an “embarrassing doorman and garbageman,” according to Entertainment Weekly. White compared the film's director Jordan Peele, of Comedy Central's "Key and Peele," to President...

    Ellen DeGeneres has said Kim Burrell will not appear on her show after the gospel singer made homophobic comments. Burrell referred to "the perverted homosexual spirit" during a sermon at a church in Houston, Texas. She had been due to sing with Pharrell Williams on The Ellen DeGeneres Show later this week. But the talk show host, who is a well-known advocate of gay rights, tweeted: "For those asking, Kim Burrell will not be appearing on my show." 'No excuses' DeGeneres had been asked by fans to cancel Burrell's planned appearance and an online petition was launched. In a video...
