Political Correctness Begets Fake News
Political correctness, though supposedly designed to create sensitivity, actually muddles facts and attacks opponents instead of discusses ideas. This makes straightforward discussion difficult which helps generate fake news.
We are used to hearing the mainstream news derided for fake news resulting from political bias. This manifests itself most often in deciding what to cover and not fact checking stories they want to be true. Focusing on Trump’s non-existent Russia collusion while ignoring Clinton’s and the FBI’s misconduct is, for example, coverage bias.
Bankers Join Socialists in Supporting “Modern Monetary Theory”
The gaggle of socialist candidates vying to win the Democratic nomination for president all agree on one thing. They believe government should be doing a lot more.
Just how to pay for all of those dreams is the question. Modern Monetary Theory (MMT), we are told by the likes of Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, is the answer.

Man argues he’s really a dog using transgender talking points
As a columnist reporting on the latest news from the culture wars in 2019, I often find it difficult to know which stories I should write about, and which stories I should pass by. Because the Sexual Revolution inflicted on the West over the past half-century appears to have metastasized and entered Stage Four, we are now forced to grapple with and discuss concepts and behaviors that would have made our grandparents flush in shame, recoil in disgust, or despair over the state of our culture—and very likely all three. But despite that fact, dealing with the moral confusion and transgender totalitarianism and mangled state of marriage is unfortunately essential.
When karma hits a Muslim terrorist: Facebook claims this video violates its community standards
Facebook claims this video violates its community standards and has removed our original post of the video – because it’s funny and because free speech is under attack.
