I watched quite a bit of the Planned Parenthood videos when they were released, and I am not a fan of Planned Parenthood, but Robert Lewis Dear, the accused murderer of three people and the person who wounded nine more, must be chastised. What he did was despicable, and must be condemned by all.
You can speak out about Planned Parenthood, but to kill innocent people as he did makes him no better than the savages in ISIS. It sickens me to see someone like him.
The Daily Caller reports that Columbia University recently had a “teach-in and speak-out”, titled “Race, Ethnicity and University Life” . One of the students, Nissy Aya, opined:
“It’s traumatizing to sit in Core classes,” she said. “We are looking at history through the lens of these powerful, white men. I have no power or agency as a black woman, so where do I fit in?”
As an example, Aya cited her art class, where she complained that Congolese artwork was repeatedly characterized as “primitive.” She wanted to object to that characterization but, in the Spectator’s words, was “tired of already having worked that day to address so many other instances of racism and discrimination.”
I can’t quite decide which I find more troubling, the fact that a college student is complaining about having to learn about “white men in history”, or that this absurdity is actually entertained. If Ms. Aya is “traumatized” by this, in my opinion, she obviously has no concept of what trauma actually is. I find this to be so utterly absurd, I really am at a loss of words.
Colleges and Universities are no longer institutions of higher learning. They no longer are educating, they are indoctrinating. It’s a very sad state of affairs.
In this liberal-minded community, about two hours north of San Francisco, a group of girls ages 10 and 13 who have named themselves the Unicorns want to formally join the Boy Scouts, the 105-year-old organization that has long considered itself the cradle of American male leadership. None of them want to be boys — they just want to play like them.
Girls want to join the Boy Scouts? It seems that nothing is sacred anymore, and that long standing customs have little value in modern society. The Boy Scouts is not only an institution steeped deeply in tradition, it is also an organization that does quite a bit to help boys grow into fine men. Girls have the Girl Scouts. Why can’t these girls simply try to influence the Girl Scouts to do more things that the Boy Scouts do, or, why not form a new organization that admits both boys and girls?
Additionally, why can’t parents ever tell their children no? If these were my daughters, I would tell them, quite simply, “No, you can not join the Boy Scouts because you are a girl”. For me, it really would be as simple as that.
Have I mentioned they just don’t get it? President Obama has stated plainly that he will veto any bill restricting Syrian refugees from entering the United States. That is his right as President, but he is wrong on this issue.
The Hill reports “The legislation would prevent any refugees from Syria or Iraq from entering the United States until the FBI, Department of Homeland Security and Director of National Intelligence certify that none of them are dangerous.”
So what is the problem Mr. President? The bill doesn’t say REFUGEES CAN NOT come to the United States, it says that they must be vetted by the FBI, Department of Homeland Security, and Director of National Intelligence. Why are you against this Mr. President?
Currently, as reported by CNBC in an article title How America’s screening of Syrian refugees works, the current process “usually begins with the Office of the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) referring asylum-seekers to the U.S. government. Before anyone working for Washington looks into these refugees, the U.N. agency has conducted a series of background and identity checks, biometric screenings (through iris scans) and selected the most vulnerable individuals to be resettled, according to Brian Hansford, UNHCR’s Washington, D.C., spokesman.” So the United Nations helps vet the refugees? No thanks. I don’t trust the United Nations. The article offers no further explanation of the process.
I support H.R. 4038: American SAFE Act of 2015, for a full summary of the bill, please click here. I STRONGLY URGE anyone supporting this bill to contact their Congressman and Senators and informing them of your support for the bill. The President vows he will veto the bill, so we need all the support we can get.
The Hill reports “In a 289-137 vote, the House on Thursday” approved the bill. It’s now moving to the Senate, where “Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid (Nev.) vowed to block the House bill if it is considered by the upper chamber after the Thanksgiving recess.”

“In the last days, obviously, that has been particularly put to the test, There’s something different about what happened from Charlie Hebdo, and I think everybody would feel that. There was a sort of particularized focus and perhaps even a legitimacy in terms of – not a legitimacy, but a rationale that you could attach yourself to somehow and say, okay, they’re really angry because of this and that.
There was a legitimacy? A rationale? No Mr. Kerry, there was a REASON, but neither a legitimacy or a rationale. The reason is actually very simple Mr. Kerry: radical Islamic Terrorists HATE AND DESPISE WESTERN CULTURE. They want NOTHING LESS, than to DESTROY IT. Unfortunately you, and the current President fail to grasp this. You fail to understand that there IS NO REASONING WITH THESE PEOPLE. Until and unless you comprehend this, more innocent people will continue to be slaughtered. But hey, I’m just a cop. What do I know, right?
I have not been a fan of the Black Lives Matter movement, for many reasons. But I have to say, all you need to know about this movement can be summed up in their response to the Paris attacks.
The Washington Times reports, that the activists are actually complaining that the Paris attacks have distracted from their cause.
“Racist white people kill me, you want everyone to have sympathy for YOUR tragedy, but you have none for ours,” one user tweeted, adding “#Mizzou.”
“Disgusted @ white conservative Americans using Paris as a ‘see black people, your woes here w/ us could be more extreme,’ but not surprised,” another user tweeted.
Many protesters, including Black Lives Matter national leaders, said the racial injustice at college campuses and the attacks in Paris were both acts of terrorism. “Interesting how the news reports are covering the Paris terrorist attacks but said nothing abut the terrorist attack at #Mizzou,” one user tweeted reads. “Paris attacks were terrorism. black students getting death threats on their college campuses (A SUPPOSED SAFE SPACE!!) is also TERRORISM,” another tweet reads.
F Paris? Really? That’s all I need to know about these people, and their “movement”. They are despicable, vitriolic, decisive, and contemptible. They really should be ashamed of themselves. It is truly sad when people who spread such vicious and callous sentiment emanates from our colleges and universities.
It’s really difficult for me to believe that people can be just so ignorant. This from The Hill:
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) on Sunday reiterated his claim that climate change will lead to terrorism by destabilizing regions affected by droughts, floods, and other natural disasters.
“The reason is pretty obvious: If we are going to see an increase in drought and flood and extreme weather disturbances as a result of climate change, what that means is that peoples all over the world are going to be fighting over limited natural resources,” Sanders said on CBS’s “Face the Nation.”
“If there is not enough water, if there is not enough land to grow your crops, then you’re going to see migrants of people fighting over land that will sustain them, and that will lead to international conflict,” he added.
The Democratic presidential hopeful raised eyebrows when he made the claim at the second Democratic primary debate on Saturday.
The self-proclaimed Democratic socialist said on Sunday that the attack on Paris is an early example of this phenomenon playing out.
“Well what happens in, say, Syria… is that when you have drought, when people can’t grow their crops, they’re going to migrate into cities,” Sanders said.
“And when people migrate into cities and they don’t have jobs, there’s going to be a lot more instability, a lot more unemployment, and people will be subject to the types of propaganda that al Qaeda and ISIS are using right now,” he added.
“So where you have discontent, where you have instability, that’s where problems arise, and certainly, without a doubt, climate change will lead to that.”
He also blamed the invasion of Iraq.
No Mr. Sanders, it’s not climate change. It’s not the invasion of Iraq. It’s because Islamic terrorists hate us. They hate us because they follow a warped ideology that is hell bent on destroying us. The solution is not to try and understand them. The solution is not to try and aid them. The solution, the ONLY SOLUTION, is to destroy them. Until people like you comprehend this, they will flourish.
CNN Reports that a Secret Service Officer has been arrested:
A Secret Service officer assigned to the White House was arrested after he was caught in a sting sending naked pictures of himself to someone he thought was a 14-year-old girl from Delaware, according to a criminal complaint unsealed Thursday.
Lee Robert Moore turned himself in to the Maryland State Police Barracks on Monday, the same day the complaint was filed against him in the U.S. District Court for Delaware.
The complaint details a series of online chats between Moore, 37, and a Delaware State Police detective posing as a 14-year-old girl from Delaware. Moore is alleged to have sent naked photos of himself to the undercover officer and requested to meet in person to have sex.
This is disgraceful. If true, this Officer should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. I have zero sympathy for this guy.
