• The Women’s March Is Melting Down, and It Makes Perfect Sense

    The Women’s March Is Melting Down, and It Makes Perfect Sense

    Two years into the movement, the Women’s March is melting down.

    Much of the media will blame its decay on the leaders’ unwillingness to denounce anti-Semitism, but that will only be part of the story. The other reason it will ultimately demise is because it was a fraud from the very start.

    Despite its clever branding efforts, the Women’s March never represented women as a unified force. Instead, it represented radically liberal women who were upset with the results of the 2016 presidential election. READ MORE...

    How He’s Beating Homelessness Without Government Help

    George Opudo used to drive for Uber. Picking up and dropping off customers at Union Station in Washington, just steps away from the U.S. Capitol, he’d look at homeless people and think: “That’d never be me.”

    But in September 2017, Opudo lost his car, his job, and all of his worldly possessions. With no place to go and no food to eat, Opudo was homeless.

    “I was so hungry, I didn’t know what to do,” Opudo told The Daily Signal.

    Walking around Union Station, he asked a woman where he could find some food. READ MORE...

    Twitter CEO Celebrates His Birthday In Country Engaged in Genocide

    At 42, some people might celebrate their birthday at a backyard barbecue with friends, others might enjoy a night out on the town. A lucky few get to travel, squeezing the sand between their toes or getting bitten by frost in the French Alps.

    But if you’re Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, these sorts of celebrations are old news. So instead, you plan a 10-day meditation vacation to Myanmar, where the U.N. has accused the government-backed military of pursuing a campaign of “genocide” against its Muslim minority since August 2017.

  • Professor Says Banning These Words Would Fix Free Speech on Campus

    Professor Says Banning These Words Would Fix Free Speech on Campus

    University of Pennsylvania law professor Amy Wax is accustomed to political wrongthink.

    Wax has a bachelor’s degree from Yale College, a medical degree from Harvard, and a law degree from Columbia. But none of those was enough to exempt her from being on the receiving end of a full-fledged campaign to get her fired. Nor was arguing 15 cases before the Supreme Court on behalf of the Justice Department, but that’s beside the point.

    Wax doesn’t fear being called racist, sexist, or xenophobic, probably because she’s been called many of those names before. Instead of retreating to the safety of her tenure when things get tough, she doubles down—demanding debate, evidence, and accountability. READ MORE...

  • NYC Rolls Out the Red Carpet for Amazon, but Bans Walmart

    NYC Rolls Out the Red Carpet for Amazon, but Bans Walmart

    As New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio rolls out the red carpet for half of Amazon’s new “HQ2” in Long Island City, he’s doubling down on his efforts to block another big company from getting a bite of the Big Apple: Walmart.

    “Walmart does not belong in New York City,” de Blasio declared on a Friday radio segment while defending the city’s generous tax breaks for HQ2.

    “I was actively involved in the effort to keep Walmart out of New York City, [and] I would, this very day, re-engage that effort if Walmart made any effort to come back in. We have all worked together to keep them out, and we have succeeded in keeping them out,” he said. READ MORE...

  • Proof That ‘See Something, Say Something’ Can Stop a School Shooting

    Proof That ‘See Something, Say Something’ Can Stop a School Shooting

    What could have been a news cycle about yet another mass school shooting in America instead focused on a different type of terrorism this week—suspicious packages sent to high-profile public figures, all of them critics of President Donald Trump.

    Thankfully, none of the apparent mail bombs actually detonated, and everyone is safe. Law enforcement authorities successfully arrested the man they believe is responsible.

    As talking heads fill the airwaves yelling at one another about who’s to blame (answer: the man who sent the suspicious packages), few realize how lucky we are not to be discussing more children who left to go to school one day and never returned home. READ MORE...

  • The Alarming Findings of a New Study on Transgender Teens and Suicide

    The Alarming Findings of a New Study on Transgender Teens and Suicide

    One in every two transgender adolescents who are born female but identify as male has attempted suicide in the past year, according to a new study.

    The study, “Transgender Adolescent Suicide Behavior,” was published in Pediatrics, the official peer-reviewed journal of the American Academy of Pediatrics.

    It raises serious questions about how families, schools, doctors, government, and the media should grapple with the increasing number of children and teens who self-identify as transgender.

    In addition to the alarmingly high rate of suicide attempts among transgender boys, the study reported an attempted-suicide rate of over 40 percent for adolescents who identify as gender nonconforming (neither exclusively male or female) and nearly 30 percent for transgender girls (children and teens who were born male but identify as female).

    What Tax Reform ‘Crumbs’ Meant for These Blue Collar Workers

    HAGERSTOWN, Maryland—Tom Condon has seen Jamison Doors through many of the company’s ups and downs. A factory worker for 28 years, Condon has survived multiple rounds of layoffs, diligently scribing metal and performing other tasks to help piece together the cold storage doors the company has been making for more than 100 years.

    Now he’s enjoying the good times of the company, with bonuses given because of tax reform enabling him to take his family, including his two adult children with cerebral palsy, on a nicer vacation than the family could usually afford. READ MORE...

    The Santa Fe School Shooting Survivors the Media Ignored

    SANTA FE, Texas—Oh May 18, Grace John woke up late as usual.

    “Everybody talks about senioritis, but it’s real,” she told The Daily Signal.

    Grace, a senior at Santa Fe High School, located an hour outside of Houston, was looking forward to cruising through her last few days of high school. That day, she walked into the band room, and told a friend she was going to take a nap because she was sore from playing in the powder puff game the night before.

    She woke up to commotion in the hallway, and walked into the hallway to see what was going on. “I thought there was a fight going on, and I’m nosy,” she said. READ MORE...

  • Why His Female Law Clerks Are Among Kavanaugh’s Biggest Advocates

    Why His Female Law Clerks Are Among Kavanaugh’s Biggest Advocates

    After several women’s rights organizations suggested President Donald Trump’s pick for the next Supreme Court justice doesn’t have the support of women, a group of former female clerks came out to defend their former boss, Judge Brett Kavanaugh.

    “More than 50 percent of his law clerks have been women,” said Jennifer Mascott, a law clerk for Kavanaugh in 2006-2007 who is now assistant professor of law at the Antonin Scalia Law School at George Mason University.

    “There was at least one term where I believe all four of his law clerks were women. He has support from all corners and all walks of life,” Mascott said in an interview with The Daily Signal. READ MORE...
