    ...But Keller doesn’t buy any of it. “It’s like a fairy tale: ‘Big rock from sky hits the dinosaurs, and boom they go.’ And it has all the aspects of a really nice story,” she said. “It’s just not true.” ...Keller’s resistance has put her at the core of one of the most rancorous and longest-running controversies in science. “It’s like the Thirty Years’ War,” says Kirk Johnson, the director of the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History. Impacters’ case-closed confidence belies decades of vicious infighting, with the two sides trading accusations of slander, sabotage, threats, discrimination, spurious data, and...

    It was utterly radical news from the other end of the hemisphere that the press didn't seem to want to talk about much. As Ireland and Chile were falling to the abortion forces and getting great media coverage about how they'd finally foisted 'progress' upon their once-Catholic nations, Argentina of all places pushed back resoundingly in the opposite direction, with its Senate taking a stunning stance in favor of life, despite a big global pro-abortion campaign in the name of 'women's rights.' And that came despite a big press buildup cheering the other side on as the only side worth...

    9.) Be happy to see him. Free him with a warm smile and show sincerity in your desire to please him. Listen to him. 10.) You may have a dozen important things to tell him, but the moment of his arrival is not the time. Let him talk first — remember, his topics of conversation are more important than yours. 11.) Make the evening his. Never complain if he comes home late or goes out to dinner, or other places of entertainment without you. Instead, try to understand his world of strain and pressure and his very real need to...
  • Hungary Discontinues Gender Studies Programs: ‘Ideology, Not Science’

    Breitbart ^ | 10 Aug 2018 | Thomas D. Williams Ph.d
    The Hungarian government is discontinuing programs in gender studies at state-run universities after determining the programs serve no identifiable purpose and are based on “ideology rather than science.” Bence Rétvári, Secretary of State of the Ministry of Human Resources (EMMI), said that university degrees must be rooted in a scientific basis, whereas gender studies, “like Marxist-Leninism,” are more aptly termed ideology than science, and are inappropriate matter for university-level education. A spokesman for the Hungarian government told Breitbart News that there is no demand for gender studies graduates in the Hungarian job market.

In Six Months’ Worth of PC, Diversity and Leftist Destruction in the US Military, Part I, we discussed several events and policies that occurred or were implemented from June to August 2018. Part II continues with a myriad of examples concerning the leftist social engineering that marches on; without anyone, including Mad Dog Mattis, lifting a finger to stop it. What follows should alarm any American....

    Iranian regime forces have been arresting large amounts of female protesters as demonstrations continue to flare up around the country. Religious leaders see protesting Iranian women as a primary threat to the regime as they are rebelling against male, religious abuse and control. A devastated man at the protest in Daneshjoo Park takes a video. He weeps and curses the government for taking the women. The security forces said we’ve taken her to protect you, reported Iran News Wire. Below a terrified group of women smuggled out a video of themselves inside an Iranian security forces vehicle, shouting out their...

    It's not just about what's in the image, but what isn't. Although the first image from next year’s Terminator revival reveals nothing new about the plot of the movie, it does suggest that the franchise might have rediscovered its heart after far too many years in the wilderness. How did it manage that? Well, just look at what’s in the image — or, really, what isn’t. The image, tweeted from the official Terminator account this morning, shows (left to right) Natalia Reyes, Mackenzie Davis and the returning Linda Hamilton looking ready for battle as they approach the viewer, battered and...

    It sure as heck ain’t your grandfather’s military anymore; nor is it your father’s or your uncle’s. It’s not even your older brother’s military anymore. Whose military is it now – Kirsten Gillibrand’s, the LGBT mafia, soccer moms, Obama-worshipping fools, cultural Marxists and walking, talking, clueless cannon fodder. Our military is focused on just about everything except preparing for war and for war against enemies who are going to be bringing navies, armies and air forces to the fight; enemies like the Chinese, the North Koreans and the Russkies; enemies who are not insurgents in the Middle East. The Chinese...

    In Femail magazine a couple of weeks ago, Natasha Pearlman, who is eight months pregnant, wrote about how shocked she had been by the lack of consideration now given to pregnant women by men in Britain, especially on public transport. A man had been rude to her for walking too slowly and holding him up as she made her way through a London Tube station, and he wasn’t the least bit remorseful either when she confronted him over it. She also recounted a recent experiment carried out by a blogger who wore a fake pregnancy bump to test how many...

    A Massachusetts woman was reportedly taken into custody on Monday after she allegedly drove into a car sporting a Trump bumper sticker. The arrest of Chloe Wright, 25, followed an alleged hit-and-run in Hyannis on June 30, the Cape Cod Times reported, citing a police report. After the incident, the man she hit reportedly contacted the Barnstable Police Department and recalled hearing a motorist behind him honking their car horn as he waited at a red light. According to the police report, the honking continued and by the time he reached another red light, the motorist started shouting at him,...
  • New Zealand sexist road sign changed by seven-year-old girl (barf alert)

    A seven-year-old girl in New Zealand has convinced the country's transport agency to change its road signs to be more inclusive to women. The NZ Transport Agency (NZTA) is set to change signs that say "Linemen" to "Line Crew" after Zoe Carew pointed out that "women can be line workers too". Line workers maintain power, telecommunications and other cabling. Zoe said that the sign was "wrong and unfair" to women who wanted to be line workers. NZTA praised her suggestion, saying "great ideas can come from anywhere". https://twitter.com/nzta_news/status/1024056804324470784?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1024056804324470784&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.bbc.co.uk%2Fnews%2Fworld-asia-45015442 Seven-year-old Zoe was upset when she saw the "Linemen" signs while on...

    It was the best of times, it was the worst of times….at least in the eyes of the media and Feminists. The parallels between Sarah Palin and Alexandria Ocasio Cortez are striking. Both are attractive, spirited women who came from humble, working class families. Both launched political careers when they were in their late 20’s. And both were instantly thrust into the national spotlight. But while the media and Feminists have showered Ocasio Cortez with love letters, bouquets of flowers, and boxes of chocolates, they showered Palin with rocks, bottles, and Molotov cocktails. One would have to be quite naïve...

    Meet the Army of 2018, where men are women, women are men, Mommies are Rangers and breast milk is served on tap in the First Sergeant’s lactation station. In order for the complete and final unraveling of the Army’s fighting spirit and combat power to occur, the concept of gender neutrality has to be served up on a platter to the young, gullible Millennial masses and shoved down the throats of the last breed of hardass old school holdouts who are 60 days and wake up away from escaping from an organization they have seen go from the Dirty Dozen...

    Tsarizm.com ^ | 7/27/18 | L Todd Wood
    I’ve often wondered at the genesis of the “toxic masculinity” movement and the agenda to emasculate American males. It is obvious to me it did not come naturally, because it is simply not natural, not based on biology or human nature. It is also obvious that it’s being nurtured, promoted and, yes, funded by someone. I have a hunch who it is. I have written a lot about how although the West won the first Cold War battle, communism didn’t go away. It simply metastasized into our universities and media, willing to wait a long time to defeat the United...

    FULL TITLE: Gallup says women slightly more pro-choice than men but veteran pro-abortion pollster says women are “less likely to be pro-choice” We’ve previously discussed three of Gallup’s promised six-part series on abortion and public opinion (see here; here and here). Among other conclusions, we can say * More people still consider abortion morally wrong (49%) than morally acceptable (43%); * Unlike so many other “social issues,” where Americans’ views “have been growing more liberal, the 2018 survey results confirm that abortion continues to be an exception to the trend, with generally stable attitudes”; * 48% of Americans said they’re...

    One of the founders of the Femen feminist protest movement has been found dead in her Paris apartment, the group said on Monday. Activists from Femen, known for its bold topless protests, said 31-year-old Ukrainian Oksana Shachko had been found on Monday with a suicide note next to her body. 'It is with great regret and deep pain that I must confirm the death of Oksana,' said Inna Shevchenko, one of Femen's leaders, who also lives in the French capital.

    SNIP Masculinity, like femininity, is neither inherently good nor bad. Enormous damage can be inflicted by the sorts of malice we associate with girls: spreading rumors, convincing someone’s friends to turn against her, refusing to acknowledge someone purportedly beneath notice. Femininity and masculinity are manners of comportment and modi operandi; they are not codes of conduct. Men have used masculinity for acts of heroism and decency. That they have also applied it to despicable behavior says nothing of masculinity itself. SNIP

    AVON, Ind. — Armed with sunscreen, doorknob fliers and a mission 50 years in the making, the team of activists sporting blue “I Vote Pro-Life” T-shirts fanned out into a web of cul-de-sacs in a subdivision just west of Indianapolis, undeterred by towering rain clouds and 90-degree heat. It was exactly a week after President Trump had named Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh to be his nominee for the Supreme Court, and the group was joking that they had a new sport: Extreme Canvassing. In short surveys, the teams ask voters about their hopes for Judge Kavanaugh’s confirmation and their opposition...
