Left-Leaning Ivanka Becoming Donald Trump’s Problem Child

Ivanka Trump’s left-of-center positions are causing trouble for President Trump. Many passionate supporters of Trump didn’t like it one bit when he gave her a prominent advisory role in his government.

Poll Reveals Los Angeles Residents Fear Major Riots Are On The Horizon

We’ve seen a lot of riots and protests in recent years over police violence and the election of Donald Trump.

Environmental Activist: “We Have a Moral Responsibility to Blow up Wells and Eliminate Fracking and Workers”

It was a letter to the editor, and it was later edited online to remove some of the violent comments. It now reads, “don’t we have a moral responsibility to take action to dissuade frackers from operating here?”

PM Trudeau’s approval rating tumbles

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s “sunny ways” are falling flat with a growing number of voters, according to a new poll.

A Forum Research poll released Thursday found Trudeau’s approval rating has fallen to 42% — a significant drop from last November when 58% of respondents gave the prime minister the thumbs up.

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.

Are acid attacks on the rise? They are in Britain

Toxic substances such as drain cleaner are being used as weapons more frequently, apparently as a result of a crackdown on guns and knives in recent years.

Metropolitan Police figures from March show attacks involving corrosive fluids in London jumped 74% from 261 in 2015 to 454 in 2016. Across Britain, such attacks increased 30% between 2012 and 2015, according to the London Times.
