California Threatens Jail Time for Dissenters from the New Transgender Dogma – National Review – California may see itself as a leader on criminal-justice reform, but it is on its way to creating a whole new class of criminals: citizens who use “him” to refer to a man and “her” for a woman.

Anti-Semitism in Europe: New Official Report – Gatestone Institute – To some of us, it is hardly a secret that anti-Semitic violence is on the rise in Europe, or that the chief perpetrators are Muslims. But many politicians and news media have been so indefatigable in their efforts to obscure this uncomfortable fact that one is always grateful for official — or, at least, semi-official — confirmation of what everyone already knows.

Kentucky Could Be The First Abortion Free-State By 2018 – Seven states, right now, have only one abortion facility: North Dakota, South Dakota, Missouri, Mississippi, Wyoming, West Virginia—and Kentucky.  Activists on both sides of the abortion issue have had their eye on these states for some time, knowing full well that if one of them succeeds in shutting down its last abortionist, the national impact would be enormous.

Al Gore’s Hype – Reason by John Stossel – I was surprised to discover that Al Gore’s new movie begins with words from me! While icebergs melt dramatically, Gore plays a clip of me saying, “An Inconvenient Truth won him an Oscar, yet much of the movie is nonsense. ‘Sea levels may rise 20 feet’—absurd.” He used this comment from one of my TV shows. The “20 feet” claim is absurd—one of many hyped claims in his movie. Read more …

What Gives Censors Any Right to Censor? – Reason – This is just drastically wrong. It treats people as mere means to somebody else’s end, as Kant would say—not as ends in themselves. The blood-soaked history of the 20th century should have discredited that collectivist vision of society for all time, but apparently it still holds appeal in some quarters. The other point that needs drawing out has less to do with the people who are speaking than the people who stand in judgment of the speakers. The current debate has focused on whether certain vile ideas have any value, and whether the people who espouse them deserve to be able to voice them. This looks at the question from the wrong end.

The President Has a Special Obligation to Condemn Nazis and KKK – Alan Dershowitz – I also believe that it is the special responsibility of decent liberals to do the same with regard to hard left bigoted extremists. As a liberal, I will not give these hard-left violent bigots a pass. Read more …

Why President Trump And All Political Leaders Need To Ramp Up Their Rhetoric – The Federalist – Forget for a moment long-range missiles and nuclear fears. North Korea’s threats have already wreaked havoc on Americans in a far different, and possibly more nefarious, manner. Even as the media jabber excitedly over the impending menace, they little realize the real destruction has already begun: an infiltration of our very language itself, inciting prolific misuse of a word that once denoted the epitome of educational achievement. It is time to acknowledge the danger and stop misappropriating the word rhetoric. Read more …

Violence against Women: Some Inconvenient Data for the Corrupt UN – The United Nations panels lovingly practice hypocrisy all the time. In 2016, a UN debate revolved around the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW), which voted to blame Israel for Palestinian domestic violence. This year’s show was hardly different in the content of nonsense. Read more …

When Every Republican Is a Crypto-Nazi – National Review – The article would descend further into the mud. After pulling a Gore Vidal — all but calling Republicans crypto-Nazis — she doubled down, rebuking the conservatives who criticized Trump’s comments on Charlottesville. “It is easy to denounce Nazis. Republican lawmakers, if you truly repudiate this march and this violence, then repudiate . . . ,” she wrote, before launching into a list of 18 things that Republicans must disavow — including opposition to abortion, environmental regulations, gun control, reparations for African Americans, Obamacare, and transgender rights — in order to “truly” oppose Nazism.

Approximately 2,300 people turned out for the Saturday evening protest that lingered into the night. “Cops and Klan go hand in hand,” chanted one group of protesters dressed in all-black, including masks, Fox4 Dallas reported.

When Feminists Join Islamist Terrorists – Gatestone Institute – Women are dehumanized, subjugated and treated as inferior on a daily basis in Islamist state of Iran as well as other Muslim states. Many people in there are struggling every day despite all the dangers they face to obtain the few rights they can. In general, a woman’s testimony in court is worth half of a man’s testimony. Women need approval from their male guardian to leave the country, and in Saudi Arabia, to leave their home. Women cannot obtain a passport without a guardian’s consent. In Iran, a man can marry any woman he desires. Men are allowed to have four wives and an unlimited number of temporary marriages (mut’a), but women can only marry a Muslim man. Honor killings continue while the regime turns a blind eye to them. Read more …

If We’re Tearing Down White Supremacy, Start With Planned Parenthood – The Federalist – It is a rich if tragic irony that the same progressives denouncing Richard Spencer and demanding that municipal statues be torn down for their alleged white supremacist qualities are themselves closely aligned with a white supremacist-tied group. I am speaking, of course, of Planned Parenthood, which is to the abortion-loving Left what Adolf Hitler’s bunker would have become to fascists had Germany not demolished it in the late 1980s: a sort of holy shrine upon which adulation and adoration can be fixated.
