Opting Out as the Remedy May Mean Accidentally Accelerating Nonconsensual Transformations

Did you notice that trans­for­ma­tions is plur­al? That added ‘s’ is  not a case of ear­ly morn­ing hyper typ­ing. As I have men­tioned numer­ous times with sub­stan­tial evi­dence in my book Cre­den­tialed to Destroy and this blog, we can­not sep­a­rate out the end goals in our real world from the inten­tion of using edu­ca­tion to […]

Massachusetts Public Schools Teaching the Shahada: ‘There Is No God But Allah’

This is an out­rage, but expect­ed and exact­ly what I warned of in my book, Stop the Islamiza­tion of Amer­i­ca: A Prac­ti­cal Guide to the Resis­tance, in the chap­ter “The Mosque­ing of the Pub­lic Schools.” The sha­ha­da that the chil­dren are forced to recite in Mass­a­chu­setts pub­lic schools is the Mus­lim pro­fes­sion of faith (“there […]

Far-reaching “Waters of the United States” rule could be the most significant EPA regulation you have never heard about: opinion

In 1972, Con­gress enact­ed the Clean Water Act (CWA) to “restore and main­tain the chem­i­cal, phys­i­cal, and bio­log­i­cal integri­ty of the Nation’s waters.” The fed­er­al government’s legal author­i­ty to reg­u­late water is large­ly derived from the Constitution’s Com­merce Clause, which the­o­ret­i­cal­ly lim­its the government’s juris­dic­tion to the type of nav­i­ga­ble water­ways where such com­merce occurs. Sad­ly, […]

The people—their needs, their inter­ests, their rights—come first in all things.

Do Wash­ing­ton State offi­cials believe that threat­en­ing exces­sive force against peace­ful cit­i­zens is jus­ti­fied if a rodent’s life may be in dan­ger?  Or that rodents have more rights and deserve more pro­tec­tion than under­staffed cops and the cit­i­zens they […]
