Woke NBA Announces Gender Gap Agenda

Progressive NBA commissioner Adam Silver just got ahead of the Social Justice Warriors curve with a new declaration putting into place a gender quota for hiring coaches and referees. Silver announced the new “goal” of a 50-50 male to female hiring ratio, bemoaning that the referee position has been “so male-dominated for so long.” “We have a program too. There’s no reason why women shouldn’t be coaching men’s basketball,” Silver said.

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

While the commissioner of the NFL is frequently criticized by the sports media for not being progressive enough, the commissioner of the NBA, Adam Silver, enjoys a sterling reputation for standing on the woke side of social justice issues. His recent declaration about a gender quota for both coaches and referees is sure to only help his progressive credentials.

At an event Thursday hosted by The Economic Club of Washington, D.C., Silver touted his new “goal” for the league he helms: a 50-50 male to female hiring ratio for both coaches and referees.

Speaking about referees currently in the league, Silver lamented that the position has been “so male-dominated for so long.” His new goal: that half of the new referees hired by the league will be women.



Christmas Music Is More Important Than Ever

Is Christmas music worthy of year-round celebration? John Ellis at PJ Media certainly believes so. Ellis argues Christians should celebrate the season all year-round as the season is first and foremost a celebration of the incarnation of our Lord and Savior. He writes: “Just like we should celebrate Easter all year, we should celebrate Christmas year-round. Songs like ‘Joy to the World’ and ‘Hark the Herald Angels Sing’ should resound through our homes, in our cars, and at our places of worship all year long. We should rejoice when our friends and family members want to play ‘O Come, O Come, Emmanuel,’ even if they want to do so in early October, or in February, for that matter. There is zero reason for a follower of Jesus to be upset that ‘O Holy Night’ is played during the summer.” We couldn’t agree more. Merry Christmas!

Here’s more from PJ Media…

It’s the time of year when people seemingly take pride in being a curmudgeon about Christmas music. Social media is filled with posts, tweets, and memes complaining about those who play Christmas music before the arbitrary date on which the curmudgeon has decided it is okay to begin playing Christmas music. Often that arbitrary date is Thanksgiving. The assumption, I guess, is that Christmas carols will ruin the turkey and stuffing. Bah, humbug!

Having worked retail over the holidays, I empathize with those who are forced to listen to “I Caught Mommy Kissing Santa Clause,” the horrible, horrible “Christmas Shoes,” and Mariah Carey’s version of “All I Want for Christmas Is You” ad nauseam while at work. However, almost every single person that I know who complains about Christmas music being played “too early” does not currently work a retail job. So, to those people, specifically Christians who complain about Christmas music, I have a thing or two I want to say.



Atheist Richard Dawkins Shamelessly Defends Eugenics Abortion

In the wake of Pope Francis’ comments likening eugenics abortion to Nazi war crimes, Richard Dawkins (the notorious atheist, evolutionary biologist and author of “The God Delusion”) dropped this humdinger:

“And you thought Francis was the ‘good Pope’?… Abortion to avoid birth defects is not about eugenics. It’s about the avoidance of individual human suffering.”

Dawkins should probably leave prescribing good and evil to those who have studied it for two millennia — or perhaps he should read up on Nazi-era eugenics before firing off a knee-jerk, leftist tweet.

Here’s more from Daily Wire…

Famed atheist Richard Dawkins, author of “The God Delusion,” felt triggered by comments from Pope Francis over the weekend likening eugenics abortion to Nazi crimes.

“In the last century, the entire world was scandalized by what the Nazis did to ensure the purity of the race,” the Roman Pontiff said. “Today we do the same, but with white gloves.”

The evolutionary biologist disagreed with the Pope, saying such abortions are about avoiding “human suffering.”

“And you thought Francis was the ‘good Pope’?” mocked Dawkins on Twitter. “Abortion to avoid birth defects is not about eugenics. It’s about the avoidance of individual human suffering.”

Report: Planned Parenthood in Massive Abuse Coverup

In addition to the undercover sting videos in 2015 which exposed Planned Parenthood’s heinous fetal body parts business, a new report by Live Action reveals a widespread cover-up of abuse of minors.

According to the report, Planned Parenthood locations across the country were caught failing to report incidents of rape when young girls were brought to clinics for abortions by their abusers.

Girls as young as 13 were ‘miscoded’ in PP’s computer system as pregnant due to consensual relationship. In some cases the abuser was the girl’s father.

Backed by several members of Congress, Live Action has called for a federal investigation by the Department of Health & Human Services.

The time has come to abort Planned Parenthood’s predatory business operation.

Here’s more from Daily Caller…

Planned Parenthood has covered up sex abuse for years by failing to report victims who came to its clinics to get abortions.

Live Action, a “media movement dedicated to building a culture of life and ending abortion,” published an investigative report Thursday showing that the abortion organization has been complicit in aiding sex abuse for years and turning a blind eye to abuse so as not to stain its reputation.

Planned Parenthood told a 15-year-old Arizona girl who’d been raped that they wouldn’t report her rape to the police because it was too much of an inconvenience, a 2014 sheriff report shows. The abortion organization maintains that it mistakenly “miscoded” the incident as consensual sex rather than abuse.

In another case, George Savannah raped and impregnated his daughter when she was only 14, 16 and 17 years old, court documents in Washington show. After she became pregnant, he took her to multiple Planned Parenthood clinics to get abortions so that he would not get caught for abusing her daughter. The abortion organization did not report any suspected abuse despite the girl’s young age.

Bias: Google Search Results Link GOP to ‘Nazism’

In yet another unsurprising revelation, House Majority Leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy pointed out this weekend that a Google search on the California GOP was turning up results pointing to ‘Nazism’.

Which is just one of several revelations in recent days that demonstrate more than mere coincidental occurrences.

In another instance, Instagram (owned by Facebook) was discovered adding a disclaimer under posts with Donald Trump’s name that warns the post may “encourage behavior that can cause harm and even lead to death.”

The one-sidedness of Silicon Valley liberal elites is feeding the narrative that the Internet isn’t quite as free as we thought, not so long as the uber-left is running it.

But, as is par for their left coast course, any attempt to rein them in will be regarded as ‘fascism’.

Because fairness is only fair so long as it’s applied to the left.

Here’s more from Washington Examiner…

House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., said a Google search that led to results this week saying that the ideology of California’s Republican Party was “Nazism” was “disgusting” and shows an inherent bias from big tech firms in Silicon Valley.

“This was disgusting,” McCarthy told MSNBC’s Hugh Hewitt in an interview that aired Saturday. “This is a real concern. The bias has to stop.”

Google blamed the incident on a change to a Wikipedia page about the California GOP that slipped by Google employees to vet information that shows up on searches. But conservatives were still angry, and pointed to several other examples of media bias.

Tone-Deaf: Democrat Party Leader Calls NFL Boycott

The grand wizards of the Democrat Party clearly haven’t learned the lesson laid out for them in their surprise defeat in the 2016 election.

Millions of Americans — including many in the battleground states who had previously voted for Obama — rejected the elitist, top-down, condescension from the DNC and its fearless leader, Hillary Rodham Clinton.

And, on the cusp of the summer vacation season, the Democrats are still signaling they’re not prepared for the November election in which they really, really need to demonstrate to those voters that things are different this time.

Alas, Rep. Keith Ellison, Deputy Chair of the Democrat National Committee, just announced a brilliant idea: let’s boycott the NFL for finally deciding that showing respect for the flag is a good thing.

It only took the loss of a third of their audience before they got the clue. And it’s clearly a clue the DNC still needs to get. Otherwise that so-called ‘blue wave’ will be a little blue trickle, and the GOP will wipe them all over the map…again.

Here’s more from Daily Caller…

Democratic Rep. Keith Ellison of Minnesota called for a boycott of the National Football League over a rule change prohibiting players from kneeling in protest during America’s national anthem.

After controversy marred the 2017–2018 season due to protesting players, the league is requiring players to either stand for the anthem or remain in the locker room until the anthem is over.

The new policy means teams will have to pay a fine if players kneel or sit on the field during the anthem.

Ellison, the deputy chair of the Democratic National Committee, called for a boycott of the NFL in a tweet on Sunday.



Kay Coles James: Our Freedom Didn’t Come Cheaply

The list of possible activities could go on, but ask yourself: What do they all have in common? Simply this: It’s your decision how you mark Memorial Day. Because you are free.

And if there’s one thing that Memorial Day reminds us, it’s that our freedom didn’t come cheaply. Many Americans gave what President Abraham Lincoln called “the last full measure of devotion” so that liberty could continue to ring from, yes, sea to shining sea.

It’s all too easy, especially for those of us blessed to have grown up in this great land, to take our liberty for granted. We forget that freedom isn’t free. It must be paid for, and not just once.

Obama: Netflix Projects to Help ‘Train the Next Generation’

If you’re wondering whether Barack Obama will ever just go away, the answer clearly is ‘no’.

In fact, he’s looking for new ways to invade the lives of Americans: on the television.

Barack and Michelle recently announced a new deal with Netflix to produce original content for the streaming giant designed to tell American stories that will ‘heal the political divide’ and train ‘the next generation of leaders’.

One word comes to mind when we consider Obama getting his hands into the film industry: propaganda.

But then again, his project won’t likely produce anything more leftist than what’s already coming out of Hollywood.

So feel free to tune out.

Here’s more from Breitbart…

Barack Obama is speaking out about how he wants to use the film projects he develops with Netflix to heal the political divide and tell America’s stories.

Earlier this week, Netflix announced it is partnering with Barack and Michelle Obama to develop original content for the video streaming giant. Initially, no real details were released — including the actual price tag of the contract. But three days later Obama has filled in some of the blanks about his plans, Business Insider reported.

Speaking at a Las Vegas tech conference hosted by cybersecurity company Okta, Obama waxed poetic about the “stories” Americans have to tell and said he wants to use his multi-year contract with Netflix to help “train the next generation of leaders.”

Harvard to Award Hillary Medal for ‘Transformative Impact’

We’re reminded yet again why ivy-lined ivory towers on the Left Coast and the Blue Coast, respectively, have earned such scorn from the rest of America in fly-over country.

In addition to being the paragons of the leftward march into abject cultural oblivion, they also don’t mind thumbing their noses at the rest of us who recognize the hypocrisy of the socialist elites.

Enter Harvard which will reportedly award Hillary on Friday the ‘prestigious’ Radcliffe Medal for her “transformative impact on society.”

And they’re absolutely correct.

Hillary has done more in the last 25 years to polarize American voters against the Democrat Party than any other political figure.

We’ll raise a glass to that. Cheers!

Here’s more from Fox News…

Hillary Clinton will receive Harvard’s prestigious Radcliffe Medal for her “transformative impact on society,” according to the Ivy League university.

She will receive the award Friday as part of the school’s graduation-week activities.

Clinton is a former first lady, New York senator, secretary of State and two-time Democratic presidential candidate. Her 2016 White House bid was damaged severely by an FBI investigation into her use of private email servers to send and receive classified information while at the State Department.

Organizers at Harvard say Clinton was chosen for the award because she’s a “champion for human rights,” a “skilled legislator” and “an advocate of American leadership” on the world stage.

Judge Strikes Down California Assisted-Suicide Law

California’s insistence on allowing doctors to send patients to a premature death has hit a brick wall this week after a state judge struck down the state’s 2016 End of Life Option Act.

California was among latest (very blue) states to jump onto the bandwagon in deciding when a sick or elderly person’s life is no longer ‘quality’ and therefore worthy of ‘death with dignity’.

But the dark underside of the policy stinks of the sort of euthanasia policies that aren’t too far removed from the Third Reich.

Insurance agencies have routinely offered to pay for cheap assisted suicide pills instead of costly life-saving surgery.

And it’s been demonstrated already that folks without insurance or with mental disability are routinely coaxed into ‘no longer being a burden’ to family and friends.

Assisted suicide is really nothing more than soft-eugenics, and it’s high time we send the policy to an untimely death, across the board.

Here’s more from Daily Caller…

A California state judge struck down a law allowing doctors to prescribe life-ending drugs to terminally ill adult patients Tuesday, ending the state’s 2016 attempt to legalize euthanasia.

California’s End of Life Option Act passed the legislature in 2016 amid fierce backlash from those claiming it was immoral, CNN reported Wednesday. Judge Daniel Ottolia’s ruling did not pertain to the content of the law, however. He instead ruled in unconstitutional on a procedural basis because it was passed during a special session convened by Gov. Jerry Brown. The ruling comes less than a month after the U.K. ordered the death of toddler Alfie Evans in April, shocking the world.

Adult, terminally ill patients should have the right to decide their life is no longer worth living and “die with dignity,” proponents of assisted suicide argue. The laws force doctors to harm their patients and can make patients feel pressured to commit suicide to cut costs for their families, critics counter.
