Professor Wants Children to Learn ‘Queer Theory’ in Elementary School

April 26 - A professor at the University of Arizona who conducts research on science education is arguing that students should be taught “queer theory” in elementary school. Kristin Gunckel, a professor at the University of Arizona, argued on behalf of introducing “queer theory” into American elementary school curriculum in a recent lecture that took place last month. “Queer theory,” according to Gunckel, examines why heterosexuality is portrayed as the “only normal and natural form” for human beings.

South Carolina politician demands removal of slave memorial if Confederate monument taken down

April 26 - A South Carolina Republican running for Congress is calling for the removal of a memorial to African American slaves if a Confederate monument is lifted from statehouse grounds, the Guardian reported. Sheri Few, who is running for South Carolina’s fifth congressional district, is pinning her campaign on the preservation of Confederate symbolism. A new campaign advertisement features Few wielding a semi-automatic rifle, while criticizing “weak politicians” in front of an American flag.

New Biography: Young Obama ‘Considered Homosexuality’

April 26 - Former President Barack Obama considered being homosexual as a young man, according to a forthcoming biography of the president. The biography by David Garrow, “Rising Star: The Making of Barack Obama,” is set to come out on May 9. Garrow wrote a Pulitzer Prize-winning biography of Martin Luther King Jr., and is a regular contributor to The New York Times and The Washington Post. In a chapter about the former president’s two years at Occidental College, Garrow reveals a close...

Ancient humans may have reached Americas 100,000 years earlier than thought

April 26 - In a provocative and controversial claim, scientists say a scattering of bones and stones suggests ancestral humans reached the New World more than 100,000 years earlier than previously thought. Most genetic and archaeological evidence shows humans first entered the Americas some 15,000 years ago. But a study nearly 25 years in the making in this week’s Nature finds that the 130,000-year-old bones of a mastodon, an extinct relative of the mammoth, unearthed...

Ancient tablet unearthed at historic Roman excavation site in Israel

April 26 - Archaeologists made a significant find at an ancient Roman temple site in north central Israel recently -- a mother-of-pearl tablet scientists believe was part of a box that contained a biblical Hebrew scroll. Experts believe the artifact, found at the ancient Roman city of Caesarea, is about 1,500 years old. "A small tablet decorated with the shape of a menorah was found in a Persian layer inside inside the vaults here," Ze'ev Margalit, director of conservation and development for the Israeli Nature...

Saturated Fat Doesn't Cause Coronary Heart Disease

April 26 - An increasing body of evidence strongly suggests that dietary saturated fat has wrongfully taken the blame for coronary heart disease. The real culprit is chronic inflammation, which can be effectively reduced with healthy lifestyle changes, according to an expert panel of cardiologists who co-authored a new report published online in the British Journal of Sports Medicine. “Coronary artery disease pathogenesis and treatment urgently requires a paradigm shift. Despite popular belief among doctors...

Ann Coulter says speech is "canceled" but she may still visit Berkeley

April 26 - Ann Coulter said in an email Wednesday that her speaking event planned for this week at the University of California, Berkeley, is “canceled” but implied she might still travel to the city or campus anyway. Amid growing concerns of violence on campus whether Coulter turns up or not, the conservative pundit lost the backing of groups that had initially sponsored her appearance. In an email to the Associated Press, Coulter wrote “Berkeley canceled” when asked to confirm if she would appear...

ACLU defends Coulter: ‘We must protect speech’

April 26 - The American Civil Liberties Union defended Ann Coulter Wednesday after the University of California, Berkeley, cancelled a speech citing security concerns. Coulter announced earlier Wednesday that she would no longer appear at Berkeley after conservative group sponsoring her remarks withdrew their support. “There will be no speech,” she told Reuters. “I looked over my shoulder and my allies had joined the other team.” “It’s a sad day for free speech,” Coulter told The New York Times.

AP Changes Fresno Shooter’s Words From ‘Allahu Akbar,’ Removes Islam Reference

April 19 - The Associated Press edited the words of a Muslim man who allegedly killed three white people in downtown Fresno Tuesday afternoon and shouted “Allahu Akbar!” The suspect, 39-year-old Kori Ali Muhammad, holds fervent anti-Trump beliefs according to his social media profile, and he told police afterward that he hates white people. Rather than reporting the gunman’s literal words, however, the AP reported the gunman as saying “God is great.” On Twitter, the AP’s report...

Census: More Americans 18-to-34 Now Live With Parents Than With Spouse

April 19 - Four decades ago, in the mid-1970s, young American adults--in the 18-to-34 age bracket--were far more likely to be married and living with a spouse than living in their parents’ home. But that is no longer the case, according to a new study by the U.S. Census Bureau. “There are now more young people living with their parents than in any other arrangement,” says the Census Bureau study. “What is more,” says the study, “almost 9 in 10 young people who were living in their parents’ home...

German Censorship is Giving Some Former East Germans Flashbacks

April 20 - The Stasi Museum in Berlin is a monument to the ultimate surveillance society. It is housed in the old Stasi headquarters. The Stasi were the state police of communist East Germany; whose job was to spy on the population. On display is every type of spy gadget imaginable for a pre-internet era. One in six East Germans were either full time spies or informers for the Stasi, watching their neighbors. When the Berlin Wall fell in 1989 and East Germany collapsed, East Germans looked forward...

Ann Coulter Vows to Move Forward with Speech Despite UC Berkeley Cancellation

April 20 - Conservative commentator Ann Coulter is vowing to move forward with plans to speak at UC Berkeley despite the school's decision to cancel the event due to safety concerns. The announcement by UC Berkeley officials came after days of violent riots and protests in the area. Coulter, however, vowed to speak anyway. She sent out an angry stream of tweets Wednesday night, calling the move to cancel her event a ban on free speech. Berkeley's campus Republicans invited...

Protesters Killed as Venezuelan Outrage Grows over Failed Socialism

April 19 - Tens of thousands of protesters took to the streets of Venezuela's capital city of Caracas in what was called the "mother of all marches" against socialist president Nicolas Maduro. Anti-government protests are taking place across the country as people struggle to get their hands on food and other basic necessities for survival. A 17-year-old boy died after being shot in the head while walking near a protest. And the mayor of the western city of San Cristobal told The Associated Press...

Feds to Deploy Facial Recognition Tech at Border Checkpoints

April 19 - U.S. Customs and Border Protection is planning to unveil a facial recognition program that will track visa holders at U.S. airports while using the same technology on drones to patrol the southern border. The system, called Biometric Exit, is currently being tested on a one-way flight from Atlanta to Tokyo and is expected to be rolled out to more airports this summer after being expedited by the Trump Administration, according to a report from The Verge. The current practice used by...

14 Wounded After Illegal Migrants Storm Town Hall to Protest France’s Immigration Laws

April 19 - A crowd of around 200 illegal migrants from Africa stormed Alfortville town hall on Tuesday morning, demanding the government relax criteria for regularisation and give them residence papers. Illegal migrants occupied the town hall for about an hour, frightening members of the public in the building as well as staff who had to retreat to their offices. The migrants, who work at Rungis International Market, the world’s largest wholesale food market, began piling into the town hall...

Strict California Gun Control Impotent to Stop Fresno Attack

April 19 - When Kori Ali Muhammad allegedly opened fire in Fresno on Tuesday, he not only killed three innocents, but also demonstrated anew that California’s litany of gun control laws poses no hindrance to determined attackers. On April 18, Breitbart News noted that Muhammad allegedly shot and killed three people in Fresno, beginning with a passenger in vehicle. A pedestrian was then killed, and an individual in the parking lot of a Catholic Charities facility was shot and killed before police...

Fresno Bee Mocked Fears of Radical Islamic Terror in February

April 19 - The Fresno Bee reprinted a column by the New York Times‘ Nicholas Kristof belittling fears of radical Islamic terror — almost exactly two months before Tuesday’s deadly shooting attack in the city by a man shouting “Allahu Akbar.” Kristof also attacked Trump aide Sebastian Gorka, a former Breitbart News editor, for being focused on the threat of Islamic terror. The main thrust of Kristof’s criticism was of Trump’s policy of “extreme vetting” of refugees from several terror-prone countries in the Muslim world.

Illegal Migrant Accused of Repeatedly Raping, Kidnapping Autistic Woman

April 19 - An illegal migrant, along with another man, is accused of kidnapping and repeatedly raping a woman with autism while holding her against her will. Luis Arnold Lopez-Lara, a 25-year-old illegal migrant, and 23-year-old Helmer Alexander Erazo allegedly kidnapped the 22-year-old woman with autism after she left her residence after being upset, according to Ozarks First. The woman was reportedly walking past a mobile home when Lopez-Lara and Erazo offered the woman alcohol...

Netanyahu: Israel's New Secret Weapon Presents 'Existential Threat' to Our Enemies

April 7 - Israel this week officially unveiled a not-so-secret secret weapon it has been working on with the US defense industry for some years. The entry into service of the David’s Sling anti-missile system completes Israel’s multi-tier missile shield. Already for years the Iron Dome has been protecting southern Israel from short-range rockets and mortar shells. The Arrow system recently went into service to defend Israel against long-range ballistic missiles. It was utilized a week ago to defend...

Postal Service Suspended In Swedish “No-Go” Zone Because It’s “Not Safe”

April 11 - Last night we noted that, rather than help police arresting a suspect in Friday’s horrendous terrorist attack in Stockholm, migrant residents of the suburb of Rinkeby apparently decided instead to pelt the arresting officers with rocks. Of course, the incident was just one more example of the unintended consequences of Sweden’s ‘open border’ policies and a direct contradiction of arguments from senior Swedish officials that would suggest that the influx of migrants hasn’t made...

Idaho: Refugee Boys Admit To Sexually Assaulting Five-Year-Old

April 8 - Three refugees, ages 14, 10 and seven, pled guilty to sexually assaulting a five-year-old girl in Idaho. The boys, one from Iraq and two from Eritrea, entered their guilty plea last week but the case’s resolution received almost no national attention. “We agreed to the plea bargains. That by no means implies my clients were, or are, fully satisfied with the outcome of these cases or the prosecuting attorney,” Mark Guerry, the attorney for the girl’s family told the Idaho Statesman.

Dortmund attack: Islamic extremist motive suspected after note found

April 12 - A person from the "Islamist spectrum" was detained Wednesday in connection with the Borussia Dortmund soccer team bus attack in Germany that injured a player, German prosecutors said. Authorities are focused on another suspected extremist who may also be involved in detonating three explosives on Tuesday, Frauke Koehler, a spokeswoman for the prosecutors, said. A letter turned up near the site claiming responsibility and suggesting a possible Islamic extremist motive for the attack.

Stockholm attack puts a choke-hold on Swedish tolerance

April 12 - Hours after the truck attack that killed four people in the heart of Stockholm, Muslim taxi driver Abdi Dahir found himself in a suffocating choke-hold from a man sitting in the back seat. Struggling to breathe, Dahir, who moved to Sweden from Somalia as a child, felt he could die too, at the hands of an angry passenger who blamed the country's openness to Muslim migrants for the attack that afternoon. "We have done everything for everyone, we have given them mosques...

France election: Far-left Melenchon enjoys late poll surge

April 12 - With a bleed-the-rich video game and suggestions of a "Frexit," French far-left candidate Jean-Luc Melenchon is rattling financial markets by swelling in polls just 11 days before the presidential vote. Melenchon's rise is the latest surprise in a roller-coaster campaign that's being closely watched around Europe, and in which anti-establishment populism has played a starring role. Most polling agencies still show that centrist Emmanuel Macron and far-right candidate Marine Le Pen...

Puerto Rico seen sliding toward bankruptcy as deadline nears

April 12 - Bankruptcy for Puerto Rico is looking ever more likely as the clock ticks down toward a May 1 deadline to restructure $70 billion in debt, ramping up uncertainty for anyone betting on returns from the island's widely held U.S. municipal bonds. When U.S. Congress last year passed the Puerto Rico rescue law dubbed PROMESA, it froze creditor lawsuits against the island so its federally appointed oversight board and creditors could negotiate out of court on the biggest debt...

Dispute over Gibraltar reveals hotheadedness of post-Brexit Britain

April 3 - In the shadows of the massive rock pictured above live roughly 30,000 Britons, crowded onto a peninsula whose only land border is with Spain, and by extension, the European Union. Unsurprisingly, almost every single resident of Gibraltar, the United Kingdom's sole continental outpost, voted to remain in the European Union in the summer's referendum on “Brexit.” Speaking to my colleague Griff Witte in January, Gibraltar's chief minister, Fabian Picardo, described the Brexit...

The Russian Emperor’s New Clothes

April 5 - The Susan Rice bombshell at least explains why the Democrats won’t stop babbling about Russia. They need a false flag to justify using national intelligence agencies to snoop on the Trump team. Every serious person who has tried to locate any evidence that Russia attempted to influence the 2016 election — even Trump-haters at the New York Review of Books and Rolling Stone magazine — has come away empty-handed and angry. We keep getting bald assertions, unadorned with...

Trump thinks he’ll ‘be successful’ on Mideast peace

April 5 - US President Donald Trump said Wednesday he believes his efforts to forge a lasting resolution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict will triumph. “I think we’ll be successful,” he said during a joint press conference with King Abdullah II of Jordan. “I hope to be successful — I can tell you that.” Standing alongside the Jordanian leader in the White House Rose Garden, Trump vowed to work with him to attain the elusive peace deal and said he would confer with Abdullah over the best...

Swedish LGBT Group Releases Graphic Sex Brochure for Asylum Seekers

April 6 - Swedish LGBT non-governmental organisation RFSL has released a bizarre and overtly graphic sex brochure directed at transsexual and homosexual asylum seekers.

The booklet is illustrated with graphic illustrations of explicit sex acts by artist Bitte Andersson.

Sanctuary Cities Release 65 Criminal Aliens Wanted by ICE

ICE officials issued the highest concentration of detainers to jurisdictions in California and New York, according to the...

Christians remain world’s largest religious group, but they are declining in Europe

April 5 - Christians remained the largest religious group in the world in 2015, making up nearly a third (31%) of Earth’s 7.3 billion people, according to a new Pew Research Center demographic analysis. But the report also shows that the number of Christians in what many consider the religion’s heartland, the continent of Europe, is in decline. Christians had the most births and deaths of any religious group in recent years, according to our demographic models. Between 2010 and 2015, an estimated...

Public university to host talk on animal-based sex fetishes

April 5 - A discussion scheduled for later this month at California State University San Marcos appears slated to delve into the wild world of animal-based sex fetishes. The event, “Furries Vs. Pet Play,” is one among many slated as the campus marks “gAyPRIL,” billed on the school’s website as a monthlong campuswide celebration of the lesbian, homosexual, bisexual, transgender, questioning and ally community. A brief description of the 50-minute discussion, set for April 25 at the campus...

Limbaugh: Political left operates like radical Islam

April 5 - “The way the left behaves today – in virtually everything that they do – do you realize how close it is to radical Islam?” asked talk-radio star Rush Limbaugh on his Wednesday show. Of course, Limbaugh graciously made one exception: “You know, minus the terrorism.” He then presented a laundry list of similarities shared by both to make his point: For the kind of Islamists we’re talking about, the Shariah Islamists, there is no authority but Islam. To the left, there is no authority but themselves.

IRS seized millions in legally earned cash

April 6 - The IRS wrongly seized millions from business owners and individuals because the way they deposited money into bank accounts set off flags intended to catch drug dealers, according to a watchdog's report. Under U.S. law, individuals and banks are required to report deposits of more than $10,000 to the Treasury Department. The reason is for investigators to be able to track large cash deposits that might appear suspicious. However, to avoid the extra paperwork, some business owners...

Barry Manilow Opens up About Being Homosexual, Discusses Longtime Partner

April 6 - Barry Manilow talked about being homosexual and why he kept his sexuality a secret for nearly 40 years in an interview with People magazine. Manilow revealed that he’s been in a 39-year private relationship with his now husband Garry Kief. The news comes just two years after rumors spread about his relationship with Kief, according to Fox News. “I thought I would be disappointing them if they knew I was homosexual. So I never did anything,” the 73-year-old told People magazine...

Senate GOP Ready to Give Trump 'Nuclear' Win on High Court Pick

April 6 - President Donald Trump is set to win the most significant achievement of his troubled administration when the Senate clears the way Thursday for the confirmation of his Supreme Court nominee, but the episode will leave the Senate battered and paralyzed. Senate Republicans plan to override Democrat opposition with a rule change to shield Neil Gorsuch and all future high court picks from being blocked by the minority party. The GOP’s unilateral action, known as the "nuclear option,"...

Somalian asylum seeker 'rapes two elderly disabled men in a care home before murdering one of the victims' wives' in Germany

April 3 - A Somalian asylum seeker has been charged with raping two disabled men in a care home and murdering one of their wives in Germany. The 18-year-old is said to have broken into the sheltered accommodation in Neuenhaus in the county of Betheim late last year and sneaked into the room of a paralysed 59-year-old man to rape him. Police say the migrant then made his way into an adjoining room and raped another man before being confronted by the victim's 87-year-old wife...

People are fleeing New York at an alarming rate

April 1 - More people are leaving the New York region than any other major metropolitan area in the country. More than 1 million people moved out of the New York area to other parts of the country since 2010, a rate of 4.4 percent — the highest negative net migration rate among the nation’s large population centers, US Census records show. The number of people leaving the region — which includes parts of New Jersey, Connecticut, the lower Hudson Valley and Long Island — in one year...

Middle school teacher axed over bizarre diversity ‘survey’

April 6 - A teacher in Florida is out of a job after giving students an assignment asking them how they feel interacting with students of different races or groups — including young black men, fundamental Christians, Jewish roommates and transsexuals. The assignment — “How Comfortable Am I?” — was given to students at Fox Chapel Middle School in Spring Hill, asking them to rate on a scale of 1 through 4 how content they would feel in various situations like being in a homosexual bar or dealing...

Trump feud with Obama intensifies

April 6 - The Trump administration has escalated its feud with the Obama administration, creating a virtually unprecedented situation in which the current and former U.S. executive branches are openly fighting. President Trump on Wednesday said Obama-era national security adviser Susan Rice might have committed a crime by requesting the identities of Trump associates who were incidentally swept up in surveillance, though he cited no evidence to back up his claim.

Swedish Man Charged for Assault with Bacon

March 28 - A Swedish man is accused of eating bacon too closely to a group of Muslim women and also calling them names. Swedish broadcaster SVT says the incident occurred on a train in the Stockholm area over the weekend. The Swedish man, who has not been named, is reported to have approached the Muslim women, who were wearing veils over their faces. The man was eating bacon and dangled it in front of them. The women left to find other seats and the man followed them with his bacon...

Did illegal migrants poop in Coke cans?

March 29 - This is definitely not the pause that refreshes. Police in Northern Ireland are investigating what appears to be human feces in a shipment of empty Coca-Cola cans from Germany. Workers on the night shift at the Coca-Cola bottling facility in Lisburn made the unpleasant discovery when the machines that fill the cans clogged. “It was absolutely horrible, and the machines had to be turned off for about 15 hours to be cleaned,” a source told the Belfast Telegraph.

Where’s the Temple?

March 30 - If there’s one thing most Christians and Jews agree on is that Israel’s restoration cannot be complete without the third temple. “For I shall return to Jerusalem with compassion; and My house shall be built in it, declares the Lord” (Zech. 1:16). Well, if the coming of Messiah is as near as many of us believe, then you have to ask – where’s the temple? Would you be shocked to learn the temple is well along in its construction and nearing completion? If so, then you probably have been looking for it...

Australian Teachers To Lecture 4-Year-Olds on ‘Sexism’

March 29 - Four thousand teachers in Australia are preparing to go through a training program aimed at helping stop sexism in students as young as 4-years-old. The course, set up by the regional government in Victoria, will teach educators how to spot young children who “enact sexist values, beliefs and attitudes.” A document concerning the program obtained by Heat Street defends the action by arguing that sexism first begins to appear in preschoolers. “As young children learn about gender...

Migrant Tortures, Kills Social Justice Warrior, But City Defends Sanctuary Status

March 29 - While announcing the arrest of a homeless migrant who police say tortured and killed a social justice warrior in D.C., city officials said they will still offer sanctuary to illegal aliens. El Hadji Alpha Madiou Toure, 28, was charged with first-degree murder for stabbing to death 34-year-old Corrina Mehiel, a prominent social justice activist and street artist whose body was found inside a row house in northeast Washington, D.C. “It’s a long-standing policy of the Metropolitan Police Department...

12 Signs That America Has Become A Politically-Correct Madhouse

March 30 - What in the world has happened to the United States? We are rapidly getting to the point where political correctness is in danger of becoming our national religion. Of course most people would not even call it a “religion”, but for most Americans this unwritten set of rules shapes everything that they think, do and say. Many had been hoping that the spell of political correctness would be broken by the election of Donald Trump, but that obviously has not happened.

Internet users raise funds to buy lawmakers' browsing histories in protest

March 30 - Internet users are fighting back after Congress voted to block Obama-era internet privacy protections. Two fundraising campaigns have so far raised more than $215,000 to purchase and reveal lawmakers' browsing histories.

More than 3,000 people have donated to the page, which has a goal of $500 million. “Great news! The House just voted to pass SJR34.

Brexit: UK publishes 'Great Repeal Bill' plan to replace EU laws

March 30 - The scale of the task facing UK legislators as they try to extricate Britain from the European Union was revealed on Thursday when the British government set out how the process would work. Unveiling plans to convert EU law into domestic law, the government disclosed that 12,000 EU regulations are in force in Britain. About 7,900 "statutory instruments" -- government orders -- have implemented EU directives. Some 186 acts of Parliament passed between 1980 and 2009...

North Carolina Economy Booming Despite Bathroom Boycotts

March 22 - North Carolina's economy is booming despite liberal backlash over its controversial bathroom bill. The state did miss out on a Bruce Springsteen concert, the NCAA championships and the NBA All-Star game due to liberal boycotts. But according to Site Selection Magazine, North Carolina has set some new records when it comes to tourism, and business is strong overall. Hotel businesses across the state have set records for 2016, according to the year-end hotel lodging report, issued by VisitNC.

Secret Homosexual Club Created and Promoted by Idaho School Staff

March 20 - An Idaho school promoted a homosexual club for middle and high school students that was intended to be hidden from parents. The principal was caught talking about keeping the group secret in an audio recording, according to a release from Liberty Counsel. The Forrest M. Bird Charter School also recruited students for the club and concealed their activism from the student's parents. The nonprofit legal organization, Liberty Counsel, says that's against the law.

Sanctuary policies 'led to' brutal bathroom rape of 14-year-old schoolgirl

March 20 - Two illegal-alien teenagers who were placed in ninth-grade classes at Montgomery County Schools, Maryland, have been arrested and charged with the brutal rape of a 14-year-old girl, and at least one of the boys had a pending deportation order from ICE.

School sued after opening boys' locker room to girls

March 21 - The Trump administration already has reversed the Obama-era order that public schools open their girls’ showers to boys, and vice versa, but that hasn’t yet changed the practice of all schools. A lawsuit has been filed against the Boyertown Area School District in Pennsylvania for deliberately violating “a child’s fundamental right to bodily privacy contrary to constitutional and statutory principles.” The case cites the 14th Amendment, Title IX, invasion of seclusion and the...

High school 'Muslim prayer room' challenged

March 21 - For at least 30 minutes every weekday for the past seven years, a classroom at Liberty High School in Frisco, Texas, gets transformed into an on-campus mosque. At least a dozen students use the “Muslim prayer room” between 2:05 and 2:35 p.m. Monday through Friday. Controversy over the prayer room was sparked by an article in the student newspaper, the Wingspan, which clearly laid out how the room is used and by whom. That prompted State Attorney General Ken Paxton...

Muslim gang attacks Danish couple for eating ham on pizza

March 20 - Danish police are looking for a gang who beat up a young couple over a pizza slice with ham. The woman now risks permanent damage to her hearing after being punched in the head.

The attack took place outside a pizza restaurant in Silkeborg, where a 24-year-old woman and her boyfriend sat while eating a pizza. The perpetrator took one of her pieces of pizza and threw it on the ground...

Globalist: We’ll Force EU to Accept MORE Muslim Migrants

March 21 - The European Union’s immigration commissioner says the bloc has the “tools, the means, and the power” to force EU member states to accept Islamic migrants. Dimitris Avramopoulos, Greece’s commissioner for the EU’s “Common Immigration and Asylum Policy,” made the comments during a visit to Poland, which refuses to accept economic migrants into their country. “If we don’t have tangible efforts by September… the Commission will not hesitate to make use of its power,” he warned.

North County Carlsbad to photograph every car entering city

March 21 - Carlsbad is expanding its use of automated license plate readers into a system that aims to collect the registration information of every vehicle that enters the city. The $1 million Police Department project — which will add stationary cameras at 14 key Carlsbad intersections, creating a virtual gateway at the city’s borders — was approved by the City Council last week, sparking outrage over privacy rights and government control from several residents and one council member.

ABC Gushes Over ‘Amazing,’ ‘Inspiring’ Story Of Mother And Son Swapping Genders

March 22 - According to ABC News anchors Robin Roberts and Juju Chang, there’s nothing more “inspiring” than a mother and son deciding to pump themselves full of hormones and undergo gender reassignment surgery. Indeed, they reportedly watched a documentary on “Jazz Jennings,” aka Jaron Bloshinsky, back in 2012 and “Corey came out to [his] parents right after watching the film.” Such is the power of Hollywood propaganda, and rather than let the boy’s balls drop to clear...

Feminist Moms Create ‘Hijab Barbies’ to Fight Racism

March 22 - Three moms in Pittsburgh are creating ‘Hello Hijab’ Barbie-compatible Islamic headscarves to encourage “inclusivity” and fight racism, presumably unaware of the fact that the hijab is a symbol of Islam’s brutal oppression of women. Gisele Fetterman, Safaa Bokhari and Kristen Michaels are re-purposing hijabs to create veils for Barbie dolls so that children become more comfortable with being surrounded by veiled Muslim women. “They will see it as a kind memory from their playtime, and then...

Historic restoration of Jesus’ tomb completed

March 22 - The tomb of Jesus has been resurrected to its former glory. Just in time for Easter, a Greek restoration team has completed a historic renovation of the Edicule, the shrine that tradition says houses the cave where Jesus was entombed and resurrected. Gone is the unsightly iron cage built around the shrine by British authorities in 1947 to shore up the walls. Gone is the black soot on the shrine’s stone façade from decades of pilgrims lighting candles. And gone are fears about the...

To improve education, we need to let teachers administer discipline regardless of race

March 22 - In 2012 the Education Department released a national study showing that black students are suspended from school at a higher rate than whites, and the findings fueled a predictable debate over whether school discipline policies are racist. Two years later, the department sent a letter to school districts warning them to do something about the disparity—in effect, to stop suspending so many disruptive black students or risk becoming the subject of a federal civil-rights investigation...

'He has every right to compete with women': Transgender weightlifter sparks criticism after competition win

March 20 - A Kiwi weightlifter has made history as the first transgender athlete to represent New Zealand and come away with a win, however the victory has been slammed by other competitors. Gavin Hubbard, 39, won the women's over 90kg division at the Australian International competition in Melbourne on Sunday, but the win has caused a stir with some believing he had an unfair advantage. His combined total of 268kg was nearly 20kg better than Samoan runner-up Iuniarra Sipaia, with another 20kg...

Israel plans mass evacuation if war erupts again

March 21 - If Islamic militants in Gaza or Lebanon go to war with Israel, they could find their usual targets empty. Israel is drawing up contingency plans to evacuate up to a quarter-million civilians from border communities to protect them from attacks from Hamas, Hezbollah or other Islamic militant groups. The mass evacuations would be the biggest in Israel's history, part of a bigger plan where the army works with municipalities to keep civilians safe. All sides have been preparing...

Mexico warned companies it would not be in their best 'interests' to help build Trump's border wall

March 22 - Mexico's government on Tuesday warned Mexican companies that it would not be in their best "interests" to participate in the construction of U.S. President Donald Trump's border wall, though there will be no legal restrictions or sanctions to stop them if they tried.
