  • Chelsea Handler blasts Repubs for FL high school shooting, says they 'have blood on their hands'

    Just hours after a lone gunman open fired on students in a Florida high school, killing at least 17, comedian Chelsea Handler took to Twitter to capitalize on the tragic incident and blame Republicans, saying that they now “have blood on their hands.” Handler, a self-proclaimed political activist, posted a tweet about midterm elections, urging voters “to elect candidates that are not funded by the NRA” and “who won’t allow kids to go to school and get shot.” "It is disgusting how many times this has happened and Republicans do nothing. You all have blood on your hands"

    SPARTANSBURG, Pa. — A man convicted of a felony sex crime against a 4-year-old girl has been elected to his second term as chief of a Pennsylvania town's volunteer fire department, The Corry Journal reports. Roger Gilbert Jr. of Spartansburg was convicted in 2001 of "involuntary deviate sexual intercourse" for forcing a 4-year-old girl to perform oral sex, according to the Journal. He was sentenced to five to 10 years in prison. Gilbert, 43, joined Spartansburg's volunteer fire department in 2010 and is not paid for his job as chief. He said he has "changed his life for the better"...

    US military policies and operations are now being run on a fantasy, the fantasy of women successfully serving and fighting with the combat arms and special operations forces. The fantasy was legally authorized by former Secretary of Defense, Ash Carter, in December of 2015, and which is largely propagated by Pentagon lies, Pentagon cowardice, Generation Rationalization on active duty, Hollywood liberal morons and the feminist lobby, which consists of women who think that it’s really cool Kaylee wants to be in Delta, but who themselves will be 10,000 miles from the nearest round going down range when Kaylee is bisected...
  • Feminism, Swedish Style

    Gatestone Institute ^ | 8/2/18 | Bruce Bawer
    ..... Still, in no country have the precepts of "intersectional" feminism been more unequivocally endorsed by the political and cultural establishment, and more eagerly internalized by the citizenry, than in Sweden. Case in point: one of the consequences of "intersectional" feminism is a severe reluctance to punish Muslim men for acting in accordance with the moral dictates of their own culture; and it is precisely because of this reluctance that Sweden, with its "feminist government," has, according to some observers, become the "rape capital of the West." Moreover, it was "intersectionality" that, last year, led every female member of a...

(snip) Not missing an opportunity to take a shot a Trump, Clinton said it’s “easy” to become overwhelmed by all that’s happening in today’s politics. “I get overwhelmed at least a dozen times a day,” she said. Yet she warned attendees not to get discouraged.

    MSNBC anchor Stephanie Ruhle weighed in on the stock market's historic plunge on Monday, stating “we didn't see this when Janet Yellen” was Federal Reserve chairwoman during the network's coverage of the market's wild ride on Tuesday morning. The perspective comes one day after Jerome Powell, 65, was sworn as Yellen's replacement on Monday morning as the 16th chair of the central bank. On the same day, the Dow Jones industrial average dropped 1,175 points, or 4.6 percent, to 24,346, the largest single-day drop in points in the Dow's history. The Nasdaq Composite also dropped 3.8 percent. Ruhle welcomed CNBC...
  • How Melania Describes the State of Their Union

    02/02/2018 6:33:36 AM PST · by Kaslin · 20 replies ^ | February 2, 2018 | Suzanne Fields
    The president gives the State of the Union, and the first lady offers her state of their union. A president and a first lady, a husband and a wife, a father and a mother, a man and a woman reflect different kinds of power, purpose and propensity. Melania Trump puts Frank Sinatra's defiant croon in the present tense: "I'll do it my way." Feminists ought to love her. No one thinks of Trump as an appendage of her man. No one sees her trapped in the role of "wife of," that notorious Washington "title" that once circumscribed the lives...

    (Now that) President Trump’s refusal to call himself a feminist. I have high hopes that America is waking up to the farce that is feminism. “For the first time in decades, if not ever, [feminism’s] tenets are being publicly challenged,” writes Corey Schink for Sign fo the Times. It is long overdue, for we can now expose feminism for what it is: a war on men, on children, and on family. Feminism is not concerned with the needs of boys and men, nor is it concerned with the needs of children. In fact, feminism serves no purpose today — that's...

    After long hours marching in the streets on behalf of women’s rights, men apparently kept the movement going by searching for “feminist” porn instead of old-fashioned, regular porn, when they got home. Newsweek reports PornHub’s data analysis found that after the Women’s March, people searched for two porn categories: “female-friendly” porn and “feminist” porn. According to the PornHub data page, searches for the word “feminist” increased by 287 percent on the day of the march. The results also claim men were 42 percent more likely to be searching for feminist porn than women, which means seeing women with signs about...

    Fat, drunk, and stupid is no way to go through life: Hillary Clinton is sending a message of thanks to "activist bitches supporting bitches." The former secretary of State and Democratic presidential nominee made the comments in a video posted to Twitter on Friday by Huffington Post commentator Alex Mohajer.“Hey everyone, I just wanted to say thanks,” Clinton says in the video. “Thanks for your feminism, for your activism, and all I can hope is you keep up the really important, good work.” Off-screen, someone can be heard saying, “activist bitches supporting bitches,” which Clinton then repeats, laughing. “And let...

    XYZ ^ | January 28, 2018 | Sam Vimes
    It’s taken me a while to craft a concise wrap-up to this little series. I’ve realised via the responses to my previous articles that the typical XYZ reader is well-versed in the machinations of the loony left, so I’ve been asking myself “who am I writing these for?”. Bringing it back to my original question, I suppose it has always been a slightly selfish conceit – someone once said writing is therapeutic, and forcing myself to read, research and write these has been its own therapy. Truth be told, I never intended to write 10,000 words on anything in particular,...
  • CNN Touts Dan Savage Study: ‘Cuckolding Can Be Positive for Some Couples’

    CNN has claimed cuckoldry “can be positive for some couples,” citing a recent study by Dan Savage. “In our current political climate, the term ‘cuck’ — short for ‘cuckservative’ — has become an insult of the so-called alt-right, aimed at men they view as spineless and emasculated. The slur has its roots in the concept of cuckolding, or having an adulterous partner,” claimed CNN in their article, demonstrating a tenuous grasp on popular usage of the term. “But, according to a recent study by David Ley, Justin Lehmiller and the writer Dan Savage, acting on cuckolding fantasies can be a...

    If you ask Alexa, the voice-assistant software in Amazon Echo devices, if it’s a feminist, it will respond in the affirmative. “I am a feminist. As is anyone who believes in bridging the inequality between men and women in society,” it continues. At Quartz, Leah Fessler recently noted that it’s a vast improvement over just a year ago, when Alexa would take abuse like “you’re a bitch” or “you’re a slut” in stride. “Well, thanks for the feedback,” the robot used to say. Now, it disengages instead, saying something like, “I’m not going to respond to that.”

    You may recall four years ago when the actor Scarlett Johansson ended her relationship with Oxfam after the charity took exception to her involvement with the Israeli company SodaStream, which at the time operated a factory on the West Bank– including a commercial during the American Super Bowl. Even though SodaStream has since closed that plant and relocated inside the Green Line to the Negev, certain “pro-Palestinian” groups are still angry with her. They boycotted the anti-Trump Women’s March in Los Angeles (one of hundreds) marking the first anniversary of the Trump presidency. "The Palestinian American Women’s Association cited in...

    Irish Central ^ | January 23, 2018 02:02 PM | James Wilson
    Irish feminists have hit out at a group of British trans-exclusionary radical feminists (TERFs) who have organized a meeting in Ireland as part of their campaign to oppose Britain’s proposed Gender Recognition Act (GRA). The proposed GRA would end the requirement that trans people obtain a doctor’s diagnosis before they can officially change their gender. In 2015, Ireland passed a similar act that allows self-identification — namely, gives an individual the right to change their gender and apply for a new birth certificate without medical treatment. At the time, Ireland was hailed by Human Rights Watch as a “global transgender...

    All 50,000 of them? That’s how many texts the FBI apparently “lost” in their retention system during the period of time in which agents Peter Strzok and Lisa Page carried on an extramarital affair — and might have injected partisan bias into the probe of Russian interference in the election. The bureau previously turned over 375 messages to congressional investigators, but when the panels asked for a broader range of messages, the FBI discovered that the messages had been deleted. Jeff Sessions pledged to “leave no stone unturned” in getting those texts back, while Donald Trump continued to slam the...
  • War and Sex: The Power of Women in the Ancient Greek play Lysistrata

    01/22/2018 11:36:01 AM PST · by GoldenState_Rose · 17 replies
    For years men have waged war and, of course, sex is not a novel concept or construct. Lysistrata portrays women in a powerful role, namely in control of their sex and sex in general. They have authority over the men. When the absurdities of war have taken their men away, the women use sex as a weapon in order to obtain peace. By withholding sex, women come to essentially control their men. The men eventually succumb to the women and yield in their determination to carry out a war. This is interesting because in Ancient Greek tradition, the women are...

    If you haven't already, you absolutely must watch the encounter between SJW media maven Cathy Newman of Channel 4 News and free-speech-defending Canadian academic Jordan Peterson. "I don't think I have ever witnessed an interview that is more catastrophic for the interviewer," says Douglas Murray.He's right.If you loathe the cant, self-righteousness, and stupidity of the regressive left, then you'll love this train wreck of an interview. It's the most satisfying piece of poetic justice since the Comet came unstuck in that tunnel in Atlas Shrugged.Newman set out to ensnare and destroy someone whose politics she found objectionable -- but...
