Conservative Commentator Gives Advice On Piercing The Liberal Mind

Bill Whittle is one of the most effective conservative speakers in America, and although he did not speak at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), The Daily Caller News Foundation pigeon-holed the star for an interview.

Whittle gave advice on how to pierce liberal mindlessness during the exclusive interview. He likes to first “get them out of their trenches,” by seeing if there is something we can agree on. Then, he helps them see his own reasonableness. Lastly, while regaling us with a couple of entertaining anecdotes, he demonstrates that their behavior is more conservative than they realize, using effective humor when possible.


CSULB compiling data on students’ sexual orientations

California State University-Long Beach is inviting students to divulge their nontraditional sexual orientations and gender identities so it can share the statistics with state lawmakers and the general public.

A new three-question survey provides suggested responses, such as “pansexual,” “asexual,” and “gender non-conforming,” but also allows them to decline, say they are “not sure,” or fill in their own descriptor.


Majority Finds Media Coverage Of Trump Is “Too Critical, Exaggerated”

Three weeks after a poll found that the Trump administration was seen as more “truthful” than the news media, a new WSJ/NBC News poll has found that according to a majority of Americans, the media’s coverage of President Donald Trump has been too critical, although the margin is narrow and the split is once again largely down party lines. While 51% rate the media as too critical of Trump since the presidential election, 41% say the coverage has been fair and objective, while 6% say the media hasn’t been critical enough.

Furthermore, a majority of those polled, some 53%, also believes that the news media have exaggerated problems in the Trump administration. 45% say that is not the case.

Spike in hate crimes likely linked to Trump’s win, NYPD says

In written evidence submitted to the inquiry, Thom Brooks, professor of law and government, says a “Hate Crime Offenders Register” would list those guilty of racist abuse or assault. Such an approach would send a “clear signal” about the severity of such offences, he said.

“Given increasing concern about hate crimes, there may be scope for parliament to consider establishing a Hate Crime Offenders Register along the lines of the Sex Offenders Register – and to similar effect.

Why therapists are having such a hard time talking about Trump

In her 35 years as a therapist, Arlene Drake has never heard so many clients talking about the same issue. Week after week, they complain of panic attacks and insomnia because of President Trump. They’re too anxious to concentrate at work. One woman’s fear turned into intense, physical pain.

“It’s just a nightmare,” said Drake, who practices in West L.A.

Drake was trained not to reveal her personal beliefs, but now will agree with clients if they say they don’t support Trump.

“If this were just another session, if this weren’t such a big thing, if this weren’t so evil, I wouldn’t,” she said. “But I have to stand for what I stand for and that does cross over into politics.”

Healing from Toxic Whiteness: The woman behind a course helping white people tackling internalised racism

When the President of the United States is tweeting his internal monologue, decades-old political unions are coming apart at the seams, and no one can quite predict what norm is going to be flung out the window next – trying to make a positive change can feel as useful as moving deck chairs on the Titanic.

But Sandra Kim, the US-based founder of the Everyday Feminism website, thinks she has the answer (sort of) with her course Healing from Toxic Whiteness. And in these tumultuous times, she suggests the course is more vital than ever.

‘Laws restricting free speech’ are our strength

As opposed to a bill (or law), M-103 is a motion. Its purpose is to “raise awareness,” drawing attention to an issue (extolling their own virtue is the Liberal Party’s raison d’être, after all). Although M-103’s passage wouldn’t change Canada’s legal system, the motion is intended to become a progenitor or future legislation.

Why do we need new motions or laws to combat “Islamophobia”? The Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms (CCRF) and the Criminal Code of Canada already protect Muslims and other religious groups. The motion ostensibly seeks to combat “systemic racism against Muslims”, despite zero evidence that Canadian laws systemically target Muslims. And if there was evidence, why doesn’t Prime Minister Justin Trudeau just change the law? He runs the government.

Hundreds of campuses encourage students to turn in fellow students for offensive speech

Universities are the cradle of free speech, where ideologies and ideas clash, where academics and activists can agree, disagree, or be disagreeable. This is particularly true in the United States, where the First Amendment zealously guards against government surveillance and intrusion into free speech.

Yet at hundreds of campuses across the country, administrators encourage students to report one another, or their professors, for speech protected by the First Amendment, or even mere political disagreements. The so-called “Bias Response Teams” reviewing these (often anonymous) reports typically include police officers, student conduct administrators and public relations staff who scrutinize the speech of activists and academics.

Notice, the discussion about where tax money is going is a tricky one, so i am not presenting any exact numbers.

Yale Women: Renaming Calhoun College for Feminist Icon ‘Perpetuates White Supremacy’

Not everyone is happy about Yale’s decision to rename Calhoun College from a slaveowner and white supremacist to a feminist icon, Rear Adm. Grace Murray Hopper. The loudest outcry comes not from anyone wishing to preserve history, but from the Yale Women’s Center, which claims that choosing a white woman ignores Yale’s history of slavery and perpetuates white supremacy.

The university organization is displeased that Yale chose the accomplished alumna and computer science pioneer instead of a woman of color. On Facebook (via Yale Daily News), the center said the choice of Hopper doesn’t reflect the issues and values raised by Yale students.

In the self-contradicting post, the center said that while they were “happy with the decision,” and hoped Hopper would inspire future generations of women in STEM education, it wasn’t good enough. They declared it an “act of whitewashing” that “silenced” student voices.

Supplications at Masjid Toronto Mosque: “Slay them one by one and spare not one of them”

In 2016, imams (religious leaders who lead the prayers) at the mosque recited supplications to Allah in support of the “mujahideen (those of engage in jihad) everywhere”, the total destruction of the enemies of Islam and the purification of Al-Aqsa Mosque from the “filth of the Jews.”

Dr Mouhandes will act as imam at the mosque and said he expected to see around 100 worshippers at Friday prayers.


The Left’s All-Out War on Trump

I realize that nothing we do will stop the Left or dampen its single-minded determination to destroy Trump and preserve Obama’s radical agenda, but we can prevent the Left from succeeding if we fight back with equal energy and commitment. But that will be impossible unless we fully recognize what’s going on — the tactics of the Left and liberals’ ruthlessness. We are, in effect, in a war that we didn’t start.

Police investigate anti-Muslim rally outside Toronto mosque as possible hate crime

Police are investigating whether an anti-Islam rally held on the doorstep of a mosque in the heart of downtown Toronto Friday had any criminal element and whether it could be considered a hate crime.

With signs of love and support plastered to its exterior, Masjid Toronto bore little sign on Saturday of the rally held there just a day before, during which more than a dozen people — with banners and loudspeakers in hand — called for a ban on Islam as Muslims prayed inside.

Cab rides to the border: Refugee claimants ‘gouged’ to escape U.S. into Canada

Christian Gaudet, a dispatcher for City Taxi, said in an interview that there has been a “big-time” increase in the number of calls seeking to get to two spots – one in New York and one in Vermont — where it’s easy to walk across the border. He said City Taxi is a legitimate firm that charges set rates and doesn’t gouge the customers. But he can’t vouch for independent taxi operators or for the “runners” who bring people north to Plattsburgh.

The Russian Conspiracy Theory Boils Over

Obama Expanded NSA Powers Days Before Leaving Office, Now They’re Being Used to Sabotage Trump

After President Trump won the election, Obama quietly expanded the NSA’s ability to spy on innocent Americans just days before leaving office.

Seeing as how the deep state, which includes the NSA and FBI, appear to be leaking all of Trump’s private phone calls with foreign leaders and took down General Michael Flynn by spying on his calls and leaking them to their friends in The Washington Post and The New York Times, the story is being looked at in a completely new light.


German Official Calls For Giving Migrants Voting Rights Before Gaining Citizenship

Non-naturalized migrants should be granted limited electoral rights, according to a migration policy paper, drafted by an expert panel led by the German government’s commissioner on migration, Aydan Oezoguz.

The 50-page concept proposes a series of reforms aimed at making it easier for migrants from non-EU countries to settle in Germany as well as at giving them access to the German labor market and political system.

The paper says that Germany has to face the new reality of becoming “a country of immigrants,” like the US. It urges people to regard migration as something “normal,” which is an indispensable part of the globalized world.

Democrats Plan To Punish You For Supporting Trump

Democrats have only one agenda. Their agenda is to punish this nation, and it’s people, so that our government andeconomy becomes incapacitated. Their hope is to detach themselves from the cause of this intended pain so they can leverage themselves back into power. They are not concerned about culture, poverty, upward-mobility, education race-relations, healthcare, crime or drug addiction. If those issues are to improve, it must be while they are in power.

They are willing to create any amount of social damage, governmental disruption or injury to the citizenry in order to be validated and vindicated. In other words, if you voted for Trump, you are going to pay.


Twitter’s New Tool to Crack Down on Politically Incorrect Language

Twitter has launched a new way to punish users for bad behavior, temporarily “limiting” their account.

Some users are receiving notices their accounts are limited for 12 hours, meaning only people who follow them can see their tweets or receive notifications. When they are retweeted, people outside their network can’t see those retweets.

Some speculate these limitations are automatic based on keywords, but there is no hard evidence.

This would be fine if this was used uniformly to clamp down on harassment, but it appears to be used on people, simply for using politically incorrect language.

Google, Facebook tell government they take ‘fake news’ seriously

Executives from Google and Facebook told a parliamentary committee Tuesday they’re concerned about “fake news” online, but pushed back at the suggestion their companies should be liable for the information that flows through their websites.

They were also asked about a report, published last month by the Public Policy Forum in Ottawa, that outlined how the Internet behemoths are gobbling digital ad dollars while many traditional Canadian media organizations, especially in smaller markets, struggle to stay afloat.

“We take our responsibility very seriously. That’s precisely why we’ve spent so much energy in the past three months to build out efforts to address fake news,” said Kevin Chan, head of public policy for Facebook Canada.

Essentially, “We will censor as we choose and are responsible for nothing.”

Quebec sees biggest increase in illegal crossings from U.S., RCMP says

Quebec is dealing with Canada’s largest increase in the number of asylum seekers crossing illegally into the country from the U.S., law enforcement officials said Monday.

Hating Valentine’s: Why Islamists and the radical Left loathe the Day of Love

The train is never late: every year that Valentine’s comes around, the Muslim world erupts with ferocious rage, with its leaders doing everything in their power to suffocate the festivity that comes with the celebration of private romance. Imams around the world thunder against Valentine’s every year — and the celebration of the day itself is literally outlawed in Islamist states.

In the West, meanwhile, leftist feminists are not to be outdone by their Islamist allies in reviling — and trying to exterminate — Valentine’s Day. Throughout many Women’s Studies Programs on American campuses, for instance, you will find the demonization of this day, since, as the disciples of Andrea Dworkin angrily explain, the day is a manifestation of how capitalist and homophobic patriarchs brainwash and oppress women — and push them into spheres of powerlessness.

Flyer at Western U: “Jewish terrorists” killed Muslims in Quebec mosque attack

Following the discovery of an anti-Semitic flyer which was circulated on campus at Western University in London, Ontario last week which attacked the Jewish community, the Student Council (SCWU) issued a letter condemning the flyer as “hate speech”.

The flyer, sent by the Canadian National Independence Party (C.N.I.P.), accuses Jews for the murder of 6 Muslim worshippers at a mosque in Quebec in late January, blames “Jewish Zionist terrorists in Israel” for assassination of Muslims in Palestine. It demands that all Zionists in Canada be tried as terrorists and imprisoned.

Today’s Riot-Prone Mobs Are A Product Of America’s Cult-Like Education System

Let’s face it. Today’s street theater is the culmination of decades of radical education revision. The radical Left’s systematic attack on the study of Western Civilization has essentially been an attack against the study of any and all civil societies. It is an attack on the features that make a society civil and free. Those features include freedom of expression, civil discourse, the Socratic method of figuring out truth, value of the individual, and a common knowledge of the classics of history and literature that help us understand what’s universal in the human experience. All of that had to go.
