Boys Scouts Fate was Entirely Predictable

from The American Spectator:

The other day President Trump called Rex Tillerson “dumb as a rock.” That was payback for an interview in which his former Secretary of State called Trump undisciplined and a poor study. Trump had selected Tillerson for the job based in part on the recommendation of Robert Gates, Obama’s Secretary of Defense, according to press reports. Gates and Tillerson knew each other largely from the Boy Scouts, where they both held leadership positions during its transition from a traditional organization to a politically correct one.

As president of the Boy Scouts, Gates had endorsed the adoption of the LGBT agenda, urging the organization to succumb to the demands of its critics. He cast adherence to Christian principles, not their betrayal, as the real threat to the organization’s future. read more

Song from 1949 Should be Banned, but Misogynistic Rap is Fine

from the Blaze:

Students who say ‘Baby, It’s Cold Outside’ is ‘suggestive’ are asked if misogynistic rap should be banned. The hypocrisy is glorious.

Cabot Phillips of Campus Reform visited George Mason University in northern Virginia recently to ask students what they thought of the controversy over the classic holiday song, “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” — specifically if it’s the right move to ban the tune over lyrics that suggest a man is seducing a woman against her will.

The reactions were mixed. Some woke students were all for banning the song; others believed the dust-up has been overblown. read more

Is Parler News the New Conservative Twitter?

from the Daily Caller:

CONSERVATIVES BURNED BY TWITTER FLOCK TO NEW PLATFORM

After an unexpected surge of new users caused some technical difficulties earlier in the week, the new app that some are calling the answer to the ongoing battle between conservatives and Twitter is back up and running, promising to support free expression online.

The platform, called Parler News, is named for the French word meaning “to speak,” and many are saying it is the next logical move for those who wish to do so freely without fear of being silenced. read more

Dick’s Continues Its Anti-Gun Message as Sales Continue to Decline

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Scroll Down for Audio Version

I hear Dick’s Sporting Goods is branching out. Now that they sell virtually no guns anymore at their “Sporting Goods” stores, they’ve decided to fill those empty shelves with scented candles, potpourri and dream catchers, in addition to camping and fishing equipment. And with every purchase during this holiday season, of $50 or more, the patron receives a free Michael Bloomberg, gun control bobble head. Well…that’s what I heard!

Obviously this is nonsense. I mean the scented candles, potpourri, dream catchers and bobble heads, not the fact that Dick’s Sporting Goods is yanking virtually every gun and all ammunition off their shelves.

Yes, Ed Stack, CEO of Dick’s, and his fellow corporate executives have decided they will no longer be the purveyors of any instruments of death. read more

Planned College Impeachment Over Two Words is Cancelled

from the College Fix:

Student diversity officials call off impeachment for ‘illegal aliens’ remark to avoid lawsuit

Mad at university for not addressing ‘hate’ online

Student government officials who threatened to impeach one of their leaders for using the phrase “illegal aliens” have backed off, citing fears for their “safety and wellbeing.”

They are also afraid of being sued for First Amendment violations.

Senators lashed out at Emporia State University administrators Wednesday night for not responding to the “hate” directed at them for the impeachment threat, according to The Bulletin student newspaper. read more

Lunacy of the Academic Left

from Daily Wire:

ADAMS: Shawnee State University Wins Competition Of Unhinged Academic Lunacy

People sometimes ask me what it’s like to work with the biggest bunch of unhinged lunatics in higher education in America. I used to be able to give them a serious answer. But I can no longer do that because the title of most unhinged institution has slipped away from the UNC system and landed in the great State of Ohio. This is all thanks to administrators at Shawnee State University who have now been sued for punishing a professor because he refused to provide public affirmation to an emotionally unstable student. Specifically, he refused to heed to a male student’s demand to be referred to as a woman, complete with feminine titles and pronouns. The story of how the lawsuit unfolded is simply astonishing. read more

Facebook is Not Too Big to Fail

The following article hits close to home as I was recently denied a post boost by Facebook because it was deemed a political ad.

from Zero Hedge:

Not ‘Too Big To Fail’: Why Facebook’s Long Reign May Be Coming To An End

Sears and Blockbuster fell because neither was able to adapt and grow with its consumer base. Is Facebook making the same mistakes?

Over the last several years, Facebook has gone from facilitating the free flow of information to inhibiting it through incremental censorship and account purges. What began with the ban of Alex Jones last summer has since escalated to include the expulsion of hundreds of additional pages, each political in nature. And as more people become wary of the social media platform’s motives, one thing is absolutely certain: we need more market competition in the realm of social media. read more

Gabby Giffords Gang Wants to Ban the AR-15

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

No Audio Version

Remember former Congresswoman Gabby Giffords. She was shot in Arizona back in 2011 by the piece of crap Jared Loughner. Ever since, she and her astronaut husband have been gun control advocates.

NRA.org writes: “When former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and husband Mark Kelly launched Americans for Responsible Solutions in early 2013, gun owners were assured that the group sought moderate “common-sense solutions” to gun violence.”

Giffords and Kelly explained, “We don’t want to take away your guns any more than we want to give up the two guns we have locked in a safe at home.”

Translation: We do want to take your guns away or at the very least prevent you from buying them. We’re just not going to be honest about our true intentions. read more

The Migrant March to Violence

Many are saying we can’t use troops on the border – that they aren’t law enforcement. They’re right – the military isn’t law enforcement. But why are we treating a several thousand strong potential invasion like a law enforcement issue?

Who else would you use to repel an invasion? And don’t tell me this isn’t a planned and orchestrated event.

What would you call a well coordinated throng of thousands of people simultaneously attempting to cross our border without our consent? If it’s not an invasion – you tell me what is.

And it doesn’t need to be an armed invasion. In my opinion, the leftist cheer squad who want this “border crossing” to occur, don’t want these people armed.

They are, I’m sure of it, hoping for another Gaza border incident where the Israelis got almost unanimously admonished by the press for defending their own border. Every world wide leftist condemned them – not the Palestinians and not Hamas.

Those on the left want the issue and nothing more. They want to continue the fairy tale that democrats are the party of immigrants and diversity and Republicans are the party of white privilege and bigotry. In their hearts, every reasonable person knows illegal immigration is wrong, which is why they purposely blur the lines between legal and illegal immigration. read more

Democrats Will Do Anything to Win

from the American Spectator:

Politicians pander. Political parties pander. I’d never assert that the GOP is pure and holy. And yet, what we’re seeing from the Democratic Party in 2018, on the eve of next week’s midterms, is shameless political pandering, period. Yes, liberals, I know that flies in the face of your narrative, and headlines like the one blared across CNN.com yesterday, “Trump shocks with racist new ads days before midterms,” but the reality is the Democratic Party has been engaged in a politically grotesque Jekyll-and-Hyde scheme this entire campaign season.

What we’re seeing from the Democrats in their election strategy for 2018 is transparently dishonest. read more
