November 28 - Former CNN host Lara Baldesarra responded
to the news that Canada was celebrating its first hijab-wearing
Muslim news anchor by asserting that she was warned against
wearing a Christian cross while on air. Toronto’s CityNews
network “suddenly has its first hijab-wearing news anchor on
commercial television,” with Ginella Massa asserting that it
“shouldn’t be a big deal.” With network bosses lauding the
move as a big leap forward for “diversity,” Massa used the
spotlight to go on an...
December 1 - Two American literature classics found
across thousands of library shelves in the U.S. have been
shelved, potentially for good, in one Virginia school system.
The Accomack County Public Schools removed “To Kill a
Mockingbird” and “The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn” after a
parent filed a complaint for the books’ use of racial slurs,
according to multiple media outlets. Accomack County
Superintendent Chris Holland says the use of both novels in
the classroom and libraries has been suspended...
December 1 - Recent government data shows that more
than two-thirds of the aliens the Obama administration has
brought to the United States under the president's Central
American Minors program weren’t actually minors at all. To
date, more than 10,600 Central Americans from Guatemala,
Honduras and El Salvador have applied for refugee status or
humanitarian parole under the CAM program, the State
Department said Wednesday. The controversial initiative was
December 1 - University of California President Janet
Napolitano has announced that system leaders will protect and
defend students in the country illegally — and will advise
campus cops to do the same. Napolitano — who served as
Secretary of Homeland Security under the Obama administration,
charged with protecting the nation’s borders — put out a
statement Wednesday that her office will “vigorously
protect the privacy and civil rights of the undocumented
members of the UC community...
December 1 - Texas State University students hopped on
the collegiate “sanctuary campus” bandwagon, petitioning their
administrative leaders to declare the school a safe haven for
illegal alien students, staff, and community members. So far,
nearly 800 students, alumni, faculty, employees, and others
petition created on November 23,
according to KVUE. Petitioners urged the San Marcos-based
university to adopt “sanctuary campus” policies and uphold the
controversial 2012 Deferred Action...
December 1 - A German court has ruled that Hungary is
now “too dangerous” to send deported migrants as the court
alleges the Hungarian government treats them inhumanely. The
court’s ruling comes after a case was brought to them of an
asylum seeker from Kosovo who was scheduled to be deported
back to Hungary after his asylum application had failed and
the man argued that he would not be safe in Hungary. The
ruling could have serious implications for migrants who passed
through Hungary last...
December 1 - U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP)
officials announced the opening of an additional holding
facility in south Texas to deal with the massive surge of
illegal immigrants continuing to flood across the Mexican
border. The facility will provide additional space for holding
approximately 500 Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC) and
Family Unit Aliens (FMUA). The new plant will be adjacent to
the Donna-Rio Bravo International Bridge in Donna, Texas,
according to information obtained by Breitbart Texas...
November 30 - The Bank of England's announcement that
its new five-pound note contains animal fat angered
vegetarians and religious groups, who are petitioning for a
change. The currency, which is imprinted with holograms,
color-changing emblems and other security devices to deter
counterfeiters, went into circulation in September and is made
of plastic polymer, not paper, for durability and resistance
to dirt and moisture. On Tuesday, the bank admitted in a
statement, "We can confirm that the...
November 18 - Shock video footage out of Italy shows an
80-year-old hotel owner being forced by police to house
numerous African migrants as he desperately tries to resist
government confiscation of his property. The old man seen in
the video is Luigi Fogli. He runs Hotel Lory in Ficarolo, in
the province of Rovigo. Fogli briefly looked into providing
asylum accommodation services for migrants arriving from North
Africa but dropped the issue when he discovered he would only
be paid 7 euros per night for each “refugee”.
November 22 - The European Parliament is set to grant
increased power to a central military structure, leaving the
U.K. on the hook to share the costs despite voting to leave
the EU. Members of the European Union Parliament are set to
meet in the French city of Strasbourg this week to approve a
granting increased military responsibilities to the Common
Security and Defense Policy. A mutual defense clause,
identical to NATO’s Article 5, will require all members to
assist another member...
November 23 - One of the fashion designers who helped
first lady Michelle Obama with clothes for years is now
refusing to do the same for Melania Trump. Sophie Theallet
said she's so opposed to Donald Trump that she in good
conscience couldn't work with Melania. So far, thousands have
tweeted their support of Theallet, and it's unlikely that
anyone's going to try to force the designer to work with the
incoming first lady. The situation has led religious liberties
defenders, like Ryan Anderson of the...
November 23 - Buick adds a third SUV this year with the
compact Envision, a competent and nicely equipped five-seater
that is the first SUV to be built in
China and sold in the United States. The 2017 Envision's
15.3-foot length and starting retail price of just under
$35,000 put it between Buick's two other SUVs — the small
Encore and the larger Enclave — and into the thick of the U.S.
and Chinese SUV markets. The design and engineering was done
in America. The Envision earned an overall...
November 22 - Muslim migrants – angry that they weren’t
being given “enough Nutella, Gummibears and chocolate” –
burned a conference center to the ground in Dusseldorf,
Germany, during Ramadan, according to German Red Cross
employees. The migrants caused nearly $10.6 million in damage
to the building used as a major hub to house refugees on June
the Express reported Monday. It was during Ramadan, the
Islamic month of fasting in which Muslims avoid eating meals
during the day.
November 23 - Chancellor Angela Merkel defended
democratic values and multilateral cooperation on Wednesday,
in her first major speech since announcing she will seek a
fourth term, but insisted Germany "can't solve all problems"
in the world. Merkel evoked the experience of Germany's
post-war division to stress that democracy and freedom cannot
be taken for granted, saying Europe should work with the
United States and other allies to defend those values. With
the imminent departure...
November 22 - President-elect
Donald Trump's administration won't pursue further
Hillary Clinton's private email server or the Clinton
Foundation, an aide said Tuesday. "I think when the
president-elect, who's also the head of your party, tells you
before he's even inaugurated that he doesn't wish to pursue
these charges, it sends a very strong message, tone and
content to the members," Trump spokeswoman
Kellyanne Conway said in an interview on
MSNBC's Morning Joe.
November 22 - President
Barack Obama has commuted the prison sentences of 79 more
people -- bringing his grand total to more than a thousand,
the White House said Tuesday. Obama has been commuting
sentences for months, believing many U.S. inmates are serving
inappropriately long terms for nonviolent crimes, typically
drug offenses. The commutations are part of Obama's Second
Chance initiative, which has now commuted sentences for 1,023
individuals -- and the president...
November 23 - Baton Rouge's City Council approved a
$100,000 settlement to 92 protesters arrested after Alton
Smith was killed outside a convenience store by police. Each

November 22 - Earth is not even close to ready for a
close encounter with extraterrestrials. Seth Shostak, who
works on detecting radio signals from extraterrestrials at the
Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI) Institute in
told Live Science that "protocols" were drawn up in the
1990s to deal with possible alien transmissions. "They say,
'If you pick up a signal, check it out . . . tell everybody .
. . and don't broadcast any replies without international
consultation,' whatever that means," he said...
November 22 - Tens of thousands of green cards, used to
identify foreign citizens living inside the United States
legally, are unaccounted for, Fox News Channel's
Tucker Carlson reported Tuesday. "It appears that
thousands of green cards have simply gone missing," Department
of Homeland Security Inspector General John Roth said in a
news release Monday. "In the wrong hands, green cards may
enable terrorists, criminals, and undocumented aliens to
remain in the United States. It is vital that...
November 23 - The number of Americans filing for
unemployment benefits rose from a 43-year low last week, but
remained below a level that is consistent with a tightening
labor market. Initial claims for state unemployment benefits
increased 18,000 to a seasonally adjusted 251,000 for the week
ended Nov. 19, the Labor Department said on Wednesday. Claims
for the prior week were revised to show 2,000 fewer
applications filed than previously reported. Claims have now

President Obama has just set a new record for rules and
regulations, his administration spitting out 527 pages worth
in just one day, as he races to put his fingerprint on
virtually every corner of American life and business.
According to the
Competitive Enterprise Institute, the administration has
just shattered the old record for pages of regulations and
rules published by the in-house journal, the Federal Register.
At 81,640 total pages for 2016, it ranks first and 235 pages
November 17 - A top IRS official has admitted that
Cincinnati IRS agents targeted groups requesting tax exempt
status based on "party affiliation" and "guilt by
association," according to documents obtained by the legal
watchdog group Judicial Watch. The documents, obtained under
the Freedom of Information Act, included handwritten notes
from an unidentified source at an interoffice meeting at IRS
headquarters in Washington. The meeting apparently took place
around August 2011.
November 17 - The town of
Archbold, Ohio was forced to publicly abandon their
Christian roots this week after they were asked to remove a
town seal that included the image of a church building. The
town seal displayed a Christian church at the center of the
town, surrounded by buildings, street signs and other
documents. It has now been removed from various buildings,
signs and documents. The Freedom From Religion Foundation says
the town violated the so-called separation of church...
November 16 - The FDNY is banning pictures and
merchandise related to President-elect Donald Trump from
firehouses and firetrucks, according to a source inside the
department. “The message was: keep politics out of the house,”
the source said to the
New York Daily News. “It was obvious that in the days
following the election people were bent out of shape.” Agency
rules dictate that firefighters should avoid political signage
and posters while on the job, the Daily News reported.
The source denied...
November 17 - Nearly 95 per cent of new workers in the
UK were born abroad thanks to a sudden surge in the number of
Eastern Europeans coming to Britain since the Brexit vote.
Figures released by the Office for National Statistics (ONS)
show the total number of people in work in the UK increased by
454,000 between July and September last year and same period
this year, however migrants made up 430,000 of this increase –

November 16 - Liberal mayors across the United States
have vowed to keep their sanctuary city policies intact.
Mayors of New York City, Seattle, Los Angeles, Philadelphia,
Chicago, and Providence spoke out in defiance of a possible

Trump has vowed to removed criminal illegal aliens from the
U.S. immediately and pledged to get a law passed banning
sanctuary cities during his campaign. This has Democrat mayors
pledging to stand...
November 17 - The Mexican government announced on
Wednesday it would increase "collaboration at the state and
local level" in the United States regarding Mexican
immigrants, suggesting some form of possible collusion with
"sanctuary cities." "Reinforce dialogue with local and state

determine, in good measure, the daily life of Mexicans in the
U.S.," reads the Mexican government's plan to protect its
citizens living in the United States after Donald Trump's...
November 13 - The Palestinian Authority has threatened
to “make life miserable” for US President-elect Donald Trump
if he follows through on his election campaign promise to move
America’s embassy to Jerusalem, the official capital of the
Jewish state. “If people attack us by moving the embassy to
Jerusalem…it means they are showing belligerence towards us,”
stated the Palestinian Authority’s envoy to the UN, Riyad
Mansour. “If they do that nobody should blame us for
November 14 - Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s
cabinet on Sunday approved a proposed bill that would put an
end Muslim calls to prayer being blasted over loudspeakers
across Israel. Known as the muezzin, this mosque
official is supposed to call the faithful to prayer from a
mosque’s minaret five times every day. Modern mosques, like
those found in most cities in Israel, amplify that call using
multiple loudspeakers. The so-called “muezzin bill” is
aimed at protecting the rights...
November 15 - Glyphosate, the active ingredient in
Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide, is the most used agricultural
chemical in history — and was recently classified as a
probable human carcinogen — but the U.S. remains largely in
the dark about just how much glyphosate residue is found on
commonly consumed foods. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration
(FDA) quietly began testing a small number of foods for
glyphosate earlier this year, and so far the results are not
reassuring, including in foods...
November 13 - Your freedom of thought, conscience and
religious beliefs are under attack, so it is really vital that
you listen to the information presented by Barbara Loe Fisher
in this interview with me. Fisher co-founded the National
Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) in 1982 and she has been a
leading health rights advocate defending the human right to
informed consent to medical risk taking, including the legal
right to make voluntary vaccine choices — a right that has
been severely eroded in the U.S....
November 8 - Scotland plans to throw its weight behind
a legal battle against the British government to stop it from
kicking off "Brexit," First Minister Nicola Sturgeon's office
said Tuesday. Last week, the High Court ruled that the British
must seek the permission of parliament before it could
trigger Article 50, the legal mechanism needed to officially
begin the process of pulling out of the European Union. The
British government plans to appeal the decision in the Supreme
Court next month.
November 9 - Democratic staffers were so upset over the
popular election of President Elect Donald Trump that “therapy
dogs” were brought into the U.S. Capitol to soothe their hurt
feelings. Two golden doodles, two American Eskimo dogs, and a
beagle mix were walked around the Cannon Office Building where
many members of the House of Representatives have offices,
according to NBC News. “Organizers say it was a great way for
workers to blow off steam especially for those whose bosses
November 9 - College students at several schools have
started petitions urging their universities and professors to
cancel classes in the wake of Donald Trump’s electoral
victory, citing “emotional distress.” A petition to cancel
classes at Loyola University has 298 supporters, over halfway
to its goal of 500 signatories, though some signatures appear
to have been revoked Wednesday. “Loyola students are exhausted
and exasperated from this election and no one wants to go to
November 9 - California voters approved a ballot
initiative calling for tougher gun control laws, while Nevada
approved universal background checks and Maine rejected a
similar initiative. California's Proposition 63 outlaws the
possession of ammunition magazines that hold more than 10
rounds, requires background checks for those purchasing
bullets, makes not reporting lost or stolen guns a crime, and
offers a protocol for taking guns from those convicted of a
felony. "It was a repudiation of the...
November 10 - Language calling for a Muslim ban has
been dropped from Donald Trump's official campaign website,
the Daily Mail reported. The
Daily Mail reported this statement, which had been on
Trump's site since December, was removed hours after he was
elected president: "Donald J. Trump is calling for a total and
complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until
our country's representatives can figure out what is going on.
According to Pew Research, among others, there is great
November 9 - Israel is on the cusp of another major
drought with authorities reporting that the water flowing from
the northern portion of the Jordan River into the Sea of
Galilee is at a record low. The Jordan River is the primary
water source for the Sea of Galilee, which is in turn Israel’s
primary fresh water reservoir. And the water pressure today is
lower than it’s been in the past 90 years, or since such
measurements began. The situation has been blamed on a lack of
rainfall in recent years, leaving the...
November 9 - Dozens of celebrities vowed to leave the
country if Donald Trump won the White House, saying they’d
flee to everywhere from Canada to Jupiter. The threat is a
common one after any election outcome: Canada’s immigration
crashed from heavy traffic as it looked increasingly
likely that Trump would win. But after the real estate mogul
clinched the presidency in a stunning victory early Wednesday
morning, some of those stars will face questions about making
good on their promise.
November 3 - New York State tax collections fell $1.3
billion, or 3.5 percent, to $36.9 billion through the first
half of fiscal 2016 compared to the same period a year
earlier, the state's chief fiscal officer said on Thursday.
Personal income taxes, the state's biggest revenue source,
lagged expectations, New York State Comptroller Thomas
DiNapoli said in a mid-year report. New York is not alone.
State revenue growth has reversed around the country, dragging
down the credit quality of U.S. states even as the national
economy continues expanding, the global investment management
firm Conning Inc said last week.
November 2 - A South Carolina college is hosting a
Confederate history event—but has banned the Confederate flag
from being displayed. York Technical College entered into a
contract leasing space on campus to the Sons of Confederate
Veterans (SCV) for a convention in March 2017, and almost
immediately after the information became public knowledge the
school fell under intense scrutiny. According to
The Herald, the area NAACP chapter and other local
November 2 - If Hillary Clinton’s expansionist
immigration policies were put into effect, the U.S. Muslim
population could exceed France’s current Muslim population by
the end of a President Clinton’s second term, according to
data from Pew Research and the Department of Homeland Security
(DHS). The Muslim population of France is reportedly 4.7
million and the current U.S. Muslim population is roughly 3.3
million, according to estimates from the Pew Research Center.
November 3 - U.S. services industry activity cooled in
October amid a slowdown in new orders and hiring, suggesting a
moderation in economic growth early in the fourth quarter.
Other data on Thursday showed planned job cuts by U.S.-based
employers dropped 31 percent to a five-month low last month.
That underscored the labor market's healthy fundamentals,
though more Americans filed for unemployment benefits last
week. The mixed reports came a day after the Federal Reserve
November 2 - New government data from the Center for
Immigration Studies shows 1.6 million legal and illegal
immigrants settled in the United States during 2014, up 40
percent since President Barack Obama was inaugurated in 2009.
Breitbart reports that the data also showed 914,000
immigrants in the first six months of 2015, putting the United
States on track to accept almost 2 million immigrants in just
one year. Meanwhile almost 4 million Americans were born, and
almost 4 million graduates...
November 1 - Virginia has printed 1 million provisional
ballots, an unprecedented number that could allow a large
number of previously disqualified felons to cast ballots for
president in the potentially crucial swing state. So says
Reagan George, the president of the Virginia Voters Alliance.
George, a conservative election watchdog, charged on Monday
that the Virginia Department of Elections is overpreparing for
worst-case scenarios and increasing the likelihood of illegal
votes being cast.
November 1 - Americans are suspending major purchases
of houses and cars until after the presidential election,
choosing instead to lard up on guns instead, according to a
new survey provided to Secrets. “The top item Americans say
they are likely to buy because of the election is a gun,”
according to a survey for the
chain firm Elementum. What’s more 97 percent of Americans
are holding off major purchases “due to the presidential
November 3 - Authorities now believe there is about a
99 percent chance that up to five foreign intelligence
agencies may have accessed and taken emails from Hillary
Clinton’s private server, two separate sources with intimate
knowledge of the FBI investigations told Fox News. The
revelation led House Homeland Security Committee Chairman
Michael McCaul to describe Clinton’s handling of her email
system during her tenure as secretary of state as “treason.”
November 2 - The regulars at Bob & Tom’s Gun Shop spend
hours here fiddling with firearms, sipping coffee and making
small talk — chatter that now focuses on fighting an
initiative that would require universal background checks for
all gun purchases in the state. “It’s honest gun country
here,” said Bud McLaughlin of Medway, Maine, who brought his
12-gauge shotgun into the shop, which is filled to the brim
with rifles, shotguns, handguns, semiautomatic weapons and
boxes of ammunition.
November 3 - Britain's High Court brought government
plans for leaving the European Union to a screeching halt
Thursday, ruling that the prime minister can't trigger the
U.K.'s exit from the 28-nation bloc without a vote in
Parliament. The case is considered the most important
constitutional matter in a generation. The Conservative
government said it would go to the country's Supreme Court to
challenge the ruling, which, if upheld, could prevent it from
starting exit talks with the EU by March 31 as planned.
October 31 -Rep.
Blake Farenthold (R-TX) went on with
Steve Malzberg on
to discuss the latest FBI Hillary Clinton investigation. Rep.
Farenthold says Obama will pardon Crooked Hillary, win or
lose. "I think win or lose there’s a presidential pardon in
her future. Historical precedent was set when Ford
retroactively pardoned Nixon. I don’t think that’s good for
our country but I’m afraid that’s going to happen."
November 3 - The migrant crisis in France has shifted
from the “Jungle” of Calais to the streets of Paris, with
hundreds camped out in tents in the city’s northern
neighborhoods and dozens more arriving each day. The wildcat
encampments have thrust the European migrant issue in the face
of Parisians and once again underscored the French
government’s inability to resolve a problem it hoped Italy and
Germany would forestall. The numbers have been far greater in
those countries, but migrants...
November 2 - In January of 2015 Mayor Bill de Blasio
launched the municipal ID program known as IDNYC, an
identification card that allows New Yorkers to receive city
benefits and perks no matter what their immigration status is.
Agarwal said 900,000 people signed up. In 2014 the city spent
$14 million a year on immigrant services, according to a city
budget analysis. Today the city is spending $30 million,
launching new programs like Action NYC, a free community-based
legal service program.
November 2 - Defense Secretary Ashton Carter spoke on
“Force of the Future” military reforms this week that may
involve relaxed recruiting rules on everything from
single-parent enlistees to drug use and obesity. A Tuesday
event at City College of New York featured Mr. Carter speaking
on the challenges of recruitment in a nation that is fatter,
increasingly at ease with smoking marijuana, and producing
more single-parent homes. The result has been a fighting force
that is gleaned from rural areas at twice...
November 3 - Restaurant companies should brace for a
challenging period as consumers grapple with the rising costs
of rent, prescriptions and car loans and take advantage of
cheaper groceries to eat at home more. That’s the verdict of
Moody’s Investors Service, which on Tuesday slashed its
operating-profit growth forecast for the restaurant sector and
revised its outlook to stable from positive. The ratings
agency is now expecting operating profit to grow 2% to 4% in
the next 12 to 18 months, down from a previous...
November 2 - Jeffrey Katzenberg has shared private
dinners and counseled Barack Obama on his post-White House
plans, but even he says it's a "unique" experience to host the
president in his home. On Oct. 24, the DreamWorks founder and
wife Marilyn hosted a roundtable with tech venture capitalist
Chris Sacca and his wife, Crystal, and political consultant
Andy Spahn and his wife, Children's Action Network's Jennifer
Perry. J.J. Abrams, his wife, Katie McGrath, and lawyer Skip
Brittenham were among the...
November 2 - An NBC station was caught posting election
results showing a Hillary Clinton victory days before the
election, fueling concerns that the mainstream media is
conditioning the public to accept a rigged election favoring
Hillary. Political activists discovered a hidden web site for
WRCB out of Chattanooga, Tenn. showing election results with
Hillary Clinton securing 343 electoral votes and 42% of the
popular vote. The web site originated from the FTP server of
WorldNow, a media software company that provides...
September 28 - Sadiq Khan is hoping to maintain the
number of migrants entering London by implementing new visa
plans for the capital when Brexit is finally put into motion.
The London mayor said a team of business representatives were
"working on a model that will ensure we can carry on
recruiting and attracting talent". When pressed on the issue
of a separate work visa for migrants coming to work in the
capital, Mr Khan said: "In principle I want to make sure that
my job as the mayor means...
September 28 - A New Jersey high school student created
an anti-gun-control video, but instead of getting a good
grade, he got suspended and ordered to undergo a psychological
evaluation, News 12 is
reporting. Frank Harvey says he was assigned the
anti-gun-control project last year, as part of a college
readiness course at Manville High School. Harvey completed the
project over the summer. Unfortunately, he accidentally left
his project on a thumb drive that he left in a computer in the

enforcement, Gov. Jerry Brown on Wednesday signed a bill that
will allow thousands of felons in county jails to vote in
California elections as part of an effort to speed their
transition back into society. Through a representative, Brown
declined to comment on the bill by Assemblywoman Shirley Weber
(D-San Diego), who said it would reduce the likelihood of
convicts committing new crimes. “Civic participation can be a
critical component of re-entry...
September 28 - Add voter fraud to the list of Arcan
Cetin’s offenses. Cetin, 20, is the Turkish immigrant arrested
Saturday for the Friday night shooting and killing of five
people in a Burlington, Washington, mall. Security camera’s
show Cetin entering the mall briefly without a weapon, leaving
and then returning with a rifle. Cetin fled but was
apprehended 24 hours later. He has reportedly confessed to the
five murders. Now, election officials and Washington Secretary
of State, Kim Wyman, have confirmed that Cetin...
September 28 - The U.S. Congress approved on Wednesday
a stop-gap spending bill that avoids a government shutdown as
well as spends more than a billion dollars to fight Zika. The
passed the bill by a 72-26 vote before it was passed by a
342-85 vote in the House of Representatives. The bill only
funds the federal government through Dec. 9, but before then,
lawmakers are expected to work out a funding bill for 2017.
The vote also allows members of Congress to get back to their
home states for...
September 29 - Check out this short amateur video for a
glimpse of the Western world that leftists are making: block
after block of young male African migrants camped out on
Parisian streets, with not a child or woman among them. It
could be from virtually any third world capital, which is what
Paris is fast becoming — and there may be no turning back
barring literal civil war. Both videos are from this month,
taken at the Stalingrad Paris Metro station, the scene of this
rioting in April of this year.
September 28 - Well-known Messianic Rabbi Jonathan Cahn
is speaking out against a replica of the entrance to the
Temple of Ba'al placed in New York City earlier this month.
"Another harbinger has appeared in the land -- and this one in
New York City,"
Cahn wrote in an article published at
the last days of ancient Israel, warnings, prophetic signs and
harbingers appeared in the land, foreshadowing the judgment to
come. The nation ignored these harbingers and headed to

students at a Portland, Oregon, elementary school. On Tuesday,
the Parkrose School District formally approved Satanic
Portland's petition to launch a club at Sacramento Elementary
School. The Satanic Temple has been targeting schools with
Good News Clubs, which are put on by the Child Evangelism
Fellowship, an organization whose purpose is to "evangelize
boys and girls with the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ." One

September 28 - The latest study finds that children
raised by divorced parents are more likely to be “religiously
unaffiliated” than those raised by married parents, an outcome
that suggests a tie between faith identity and family
permanence. Results of the
study, conducted by the Public Religion Research Institute
(PRRI), are consistent with prior research demonstrating that
the quality of family stability can have an effect on
children’s internalization of religious identity. PRRI finds
that 35 percent of Americans...
September 29 - Four Republican state attorneys general
are suing to stop the Obama administration from transferring
oversight of the internet to an international body, arguing
the transition would violate the U.S. Constitution. The
lawsuit — filed Wednesday in a Texas federal court — threatens
to throw up a new roadblock to one of the White House’s top
tech priorities, just days before the scheduled Oct. 1
transfer of the internet’s address system is set to take
place. In their lawsuit, the attorneys...
September 28 - Facebook revealed that within the last
month it deleted 100,000 posts by German users for containing
“hate”, but Justice Minister Heiko Maas has blasted the figure
as too low. At a conference in Berlin, Maas said that to be
accountable, social networks must publish the number of posts
contested by users. The Justice Minister’s remarks implied
that complainants on social media are valid judges of what
constitutes criminal speech, something usually only determined
by a court.
September 29 - President Barack Obama’s drive to hand
off control of Internet domains to a foreign multi-national
operation will give some very unpleasant regimes equal say
over the future of online speech and commerce. In fact, they
are likely to have much more influence than America, because
they will collectively push hard for a more tightly controlled
Internet, and they are known for aggressively using political
and economic pressure to get what they want. Here’s a look at
some of the regimes that will begin...
September 27 - Just when you thought the takeover of
the global food supply couldn’t get a whole lot worse, it did.
Monsanto recently announced it has accepted Bayer AG’s $56
billion takeover offer (a deal totaling $66 billion if you
take into account Monsanto’s debt), which will make the new
entity the largest seed and pesticide company in the world.
The merger is expected to be finalized by the end of 2017.
Should the deal end up being blocked by regulators, Bayer will
pay Monsanto $2 billion.
September 25 - An estimated 6 million Americans are
vegans, which is typically considered to be a healthy choice.
