Wasserman Schultz Wants to Regulate Ammo

Debbie Wasserman Schultz is not only ugly, she’s stupid. And her stupidity is of a very special sort. Really, it borders on retardation. The woman who resembles a plecostomus that sucks the algae off the sides of aquariums weighed in on gun control laws, this time focusing on bullets:

U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz wants a federal law that would require background checks for people who buy ammunition.

“I really think it’s important to underscore that without bullets a gun is just a hunk of useless metal, and a would-be killer lacks the means to actually kill or maim,” she said Monday.

How Courts and Legislatures Are Disempowering Parents to Push Transgender Agenda

Recent developments in America’s courts and legislatures have brought home a reality that I discussed in this space last summer: Transgender activists seek to undermine parental rights.

Transgenderism is part of a movement that is hostile to traditional family life. The traditional family is based on the idea that the needs of children are supplied by parents with rights and responsibilities to meet those needs.

While the state can interfere in cases of abuse or neglect, generally protecting parents’ freedom is the best way to ensure that children are well provided for.

Merritt hotel paints rainbow across parking lot in solidarity with Indigenous, LGBTQ student groups

The historic Coldwater Hotel in Merritt, B.C., is now sporting a 12-metre rainbow across its parking lot.

In February, a group of high school students presented a proposal to city council to paint a rainbow crosswalk at a public intersection, to demonstrate the community’s commitment to inclusion and acceptance.

City council rejected the proposal because they said they were worried other groups, like the local hockey team and the Rotary Club would want their own crosswalks, too.

Several local businesses and individuals from across the province offered up space and money for the students to paint a rainbow crosswalk. The Coldwater Hotel, however, was the first to get paint on the ground and a flag in the air.

Divided We Lead

Leaders in all sectors — from business to sports to education — are publicly engaging in controversial political and social debates that they would have shied away from just a few years ago. Weighing in on divisive issues can alienate stakeholders — customers, employees, and investors among them. Yet since we wrote “The New CEO Activists,” published in the January–February 2018 issue of HBR, we’ve seen a growing wave of leaders surging into activist roles.

Subverting Parliament: Trudeau Liberals Caught Trying To Create $7 Billion ‘Slush Fund’ To Escape House Of Commons Oversight

As explained by Conservative Finance Critic Pierre Poilievre and Conservative MP Kelly McCauley, the fund would let the Liberals have a $7 billion stash of taxpayer dollars that they could spend without any accountability between now and the next federal election, without having to explain where that money would be spent until after the 2019 campaign.

This totally goes against how Parliament is supposed to work, because the government is mandated by law to show where every dollar is going in the budget estimates process. That’s basically the entire reason we have a Parliament in the first place, so those who represent the people vote on whether or not to approve how the government is spending our money.

Media Research Center Announces ‘Fact-Checking the Fact-Checkers’ Project

The Media Research Center (MRC) on Tuesday announced its new project Fact-Checking the Fact-Checkers. As major news outlets increasingly rely on leftist “fact-checkers” to verify the credibility of news, the MRC will ensure the fact-checkers themselves are reliable, or exposed as liberal partisans if they aren’t.

While fact-checking the accuracy of news is needed, often it is used as a medium to push a political agenda. Many fact-checking groups routinely cast judgments while failing to disclose their own liberal bias, and the public is on to it. According to a 2016 Rasmussen poll, an astonishing 62 percent of American voters believe fact-checkers are biased.
