Has the Left Planted a Red Flag in Your State?

from American Thinker:

Red Flag Laws and Individual Rights

Historically, the synonymous concepts of liberty and freedom were assumed to be the inherent right of every citizen born in our country.  Not so much these days.

In my home state of Colorado recently, the Democrat-controlled legislature signed a ‘red flag’ bill into law.  Joining fourteen other leftist-controlled states, Colorado’s ‘red flag’ law enables the forceful removal of a citizen’s firearms. My state represents another win in the left’s ongoing crusade to separate Americans from their personal liberty.

On the surface, ‘red flag’ laws appear reasonable.  When a person exhibits warning signs they are an extreme danger to themselves and others, the best course of action is to intervene by taking away their arms.  Common sense, the Left argues.  After all, if a court determines a person poses a societal risk, forcibly seizing their firearms reduces that risk.  Right? read more

Joe Biden’s Apology Tour Begins with a History Rewrite

from the Federalist:

Joe Biden Should Apologize To Clarence Thomas, Not To Anita Hill

History becomes myth, myths become legends, and legends become unquestionable. And if a biased media is writing the story, even dubious tales can turn into unassailable “fact” with the right combination of narrative and time. This has been the case with Anita Hill.

Hill’s testimony alleging that Clarence Thomas, then a nominee for the Supreme Court, repeatedly harassed her in the workplace made for explosive politics back in 1991. It’s reemerging as an issue in 2019 thanks to the new presidential candidacy of Joe Biden. As senator, Biden chaired the Judiciary Committee, and in the eyes of the Democratic voters he hopes to court, he permitted too many tough questions attempting to ascertain the truth from Hill. read more

Special Rights for Special Students

On their website, GLAAD, the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation, states clearly that, ” Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people want equal rights, not special rights.”

Oh really. Tell that to the majority of young women who live at the Scottish Rite Dormitory at the University of Texas-Austin Campus.

Heather Mac Donald Speaks out Against The Delusion of Diversity

There is no more delusional a place than the modern day college campus, and no more delusional group than the students who attend. We can find examples of this every day at sites like the College Fix and Campus Reform. Woke students, privileged enough to attend elite Universities, are triggered in to melt down and often violence at the mere mention of anything they don’t agree with or can’t fully embrace.

Peter Robinson of Fox Nation interviews Heather Mac Donald regarding her new book, The Delusion of Diversity, her experiences with college student ne’er-do-wells, and the faculty and staff who pander to their immaturity.

WND Exclusive – Will Michelle be the Belle of the Democratic Field?

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

A few days ago, Rush Limbaugh, on his radio program, was discussing a theory that Michelle Obama may be thinking about throwing her hat into the presidential ring. He discussed how it might happen and why.

Personally, I don’t think there’s any way this will happen. I’ll give a quick thought on this later in the column.

But I’d rather speak of the few current front-runners – Bernie Sanders, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. All have issues that should disqualify them from even consideration by the leftist base. Yet it continues to be a fascination how the democrats are so easily able to suspend their own identity politics and support two old white guys and the descendant of a slave owner. read more

Marvel Studio to Ruin the Super Hero Franchise

Fresh out of Weight Watchers or Jenny Craig, the next crop of marvel Super Heroes will be gay and overweight. After a long string of can’t miss box office smashes, it seems Marvel Studio’s new goal is to go from first to worst. can’t wait to see Kevin James in spandex and a cape.

from NewsBusters:

Marvel President: Movies Will Go ‘Inclusive,’ Adding ‘Gay’ and ‘Body Positive’ Heroes

Phase II of the Marvel comic book cinematic universe is going to involve a few less of our classic superheros in favor of a bold new array of diverse and inclusive characters. Yes, Marvel’s going a lot more ethnic, and a lot more gay because what’s cooler than finding out that your new favorite Avenger enjoys his skintight latex suit for far more than just crime-fighting purposes? read more

It’s Unfair to Judge the Past Through a Modern Day Lens

We in America have developed a nasty habit of judging past events with present day standards. This is a big mistake. And a bigger mistake is the judgment of individuals who’ve contributed so much, just because they had one indiscretion, or worse, a perceived indiscretion.

In both New York City and Philadelphia, the iconic singer Kate Smith is being erased from history.

After it was uncovered that Smith, “sang racially insensitive songs in the early 1930s,” the New York Yankees pulled Smith’s famous rendition of “God Bless America,” from their song rotation. The NHL team, the Philadelphia Flyers, had a statue of her torn down and hauled away for the same reason. They have also ditched the song. read more

Georgetown Students Go All In on Reparations

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Scroll Down for Audio Version

Heading into the next presidential extravaganza, one of the many potential ultra-progressive platform items is reparations for slavery. Many leftist candidates like Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris, Robert Francis O’Rourke, Corey Booker, etc., have either signed on or are considering an endorsement of it.

So popular has it become that a few days ago, CNN dedicated a full one third of its home page to various articles regarding reparations.

And it’s not just grabbing the attention of democrat politicians, clamoring for relevancy, but has naturally taken hold of the skulls full of mush (h/t: Rush Limbaugh) on college campuses. Surprising, I know, that “woke” college students would sign onto a program that takes money from one and distributes it to another.

Isn’t it interesting that the same student bodies across the nation, are on one hand, trying to erase this era of our history by ridding us of everything Confederate, and on the other, trying to keep it alive by continually revisiting slavery. It’s as if they want it both ways. Oh that’s right – they’re leftists, and leftists always want it both ways. read more

Brett Kavanaugh Continues to Drive Leftists Crazy

Parents – You must be so proud of your Woke offspring, as they mindlessly protest a man who was clearly innocent of all charges leveled against him. But facts no longer matter to college campus snowflakes who ironically attempt to bully anyone they disagree with. Or more precisely, anyone they are told to disagree with. And at the University named for one my revolutionary heroes, George Mason, nonetheless.

Students protest visiting Professor Brett Kavanaugh as threat to ‘mental health’

Google Bigots and the High-Tech Lynching of Kay James

Friday, at four o’clock in the afternoon.

Kay Cole James, the president of the Heritage Foundation, steps to the podium of the Pennsylvania Leadership Conference in suburban Harrisburg and gives the startling update.

Ms. James, at a laughing, self-admitted 70 and famously one of the best known, longtime conservative leaders in the country, announces to the PLC crowd (the PLC is the Pennsylvania version of CPAC and was celebrating its 30th anniversary) that this was her first public comment since she had learned only hours earlier that she had been removed as a recent appointee to Google’s Advanced Technology External Advisory Council. The board, on which she would have served without salary, was designed to review artificial intelligence ethics. read more
