• Disney Threatens to Boycott Georgia but Partners With China, Which Puts Muslims in Internment Camps

    The Walt Disney Company is considering boycotting Georgia over its new abortion law, even as Disney profits from doing business in China, a notorious human rights violator that is putting Muslims in internment camps.

    Disney CEO Bob Iger told Reuters on Thursday the company is likely to cease filming in Georgia if the pro-life law takes effect.

    “I think many people who work for us will not want to work there, and we will have to heed their wishes in that regard,” Iger said. “Right now we are watching it very carefully.”

    “If [the bill] becomes law, I don’t see how it’s practical for us to continue to shoot there,” Iger said.… Read More...

  • 234 House Democrats, 2 Republicans Co-Sponsor Bill Forcing Schools to Let Male Athletes Compete on Girls Sports Teams

    234 House Democrats, 2 Republicans Co-Sponsor Bill Forcing Schools to Let Male Athletes Compete on Girls Sports Teams

    Every House Democrat but one has co-sponsored a bill requiring schools to allow male athletes who identify as transgender girls to compete on female sports teams.

    Democrats’ Equality Act would amend the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to make “sexual orientation and gender identity” protected characteristics under federal anti-discrimination law. Among other things, the bill would force public schools to expand female athletic teams to include biological males who identify as transgender girls.

    Sarah Warbelow, director of the left-wing Human Rights Campaign, praised the bill’s impact on high school sports in written testimony submitted to a House subcommittee on Tuesday.

    “Opponents of equality in athletics for transgender athletes have argued that girls who are transgender have unfair physiological advantages over cisgender girls and as a result, will dominate women’s competitive sports,” Warbelow wrote, calling it not “rooted in fact” that biologically male athletes will outperform their female counterparts.… Read More...

  • Ted Deutch Calls Out Fellow Democrats for Leniency on Ilhan Omar’s ‘Anti-Semitic Lies’

    Ted Deutch Calls Out Fellow Democrats for Leniency on Ilhan Omar’s ‘Anti-Semitic Lies’

    Democratic Florida Rep. Ted Deutch criticized Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar on Thursday for spreading “classic anti-Semitic lies” and said his fellow House Democrats aren’t doing enough to hold her accountable.

    Deutch criticized Democrats for changing a House resolution condemning anti-Semitism to include other forms of hate.

    “Why are we unable to singularly condemn anti-Semitism? Why can’t we call out anti-Semitism and show that we’ve learned the lessons of history? It feels like we’re only able to call the use anti-Semitic language by a colleague of ours, any colleague of ours, if we’re addressing all forms of hatred. And it feels like we can’t call it anti-Semitism, unless everybody agrees it’s anti-Semitism,” Deutch said in a passionate speech on the House floor.… Read More...

    Majority of House Democrats Vote to Let 16-Year-Olds Vote for President

    A majority of House Democrats on Wednesday voted to lower the federal voting age from 18 to 16.

    A number of high-profile Democrats voted in favor of the legislation, including California Reps. Adam Schiff, Eric Swalwell, Maxine Waters, and Ted Lieu; Democratic presidential candidate and Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard; New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez; Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib; and Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar.

    Democratic Massachusetts Rep. Ayanna Pressley introduced the legislation Tuesday evening as an amendment to House Democrats’ For the People Act, which would overhaul federal election laws.

    Pressley’s amendment fell short at 126-305.

    House Democrats voted 125-108 in favor of Pressley’s amendment, with two members voting present and three members not voting.… Read More...

  • Democratic Congresswomen Want to Lower Federal Voting Age to 16

    Democratic Congresswomen Want to Lower Federal Voting Age to 16

    Democratic Massachusetts Rep. Ayanna Pressley on Tuesday evening introduced legislation to lower the federal voting age from 18 to 16.

    Pressley cited teen activists pushing for gun control as a reason for giving 16-year-olds the right to vote, which the congresswoman compared to having a driver’s license.

    “Young people are at the forefront of some of our most existential crises,” Pressley added. “The time has come. Our young people deserve to have the opportunity to exercise their right to vote.”

    Two other Democratic congresswomen, Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib and New York Rep. Grace Meng, offered their support for Pressley’s legislation.

    “I’m committed to making sure we empower young people to build our future together.… Read More...

  • Linda Sarsour Attacks ‘White Feminist’ Nancy Pelosi

    Linda Sarsour Attacks ‘White Feminist’ Nancy Pelosi

    Women’s March Co-Chair Linda Sarsour on Monday night attacked Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi as a “typical white feminist upholding the patriarchy doing the dirty work of powerful white men,” in response to a House resolution condemning anti-Semitism.

    House Democrats announced the resolution on Monday after Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar’s latest anti-Israel comments, which critics—including other Democrats—have denounced as anti-Semitic.

    “This is why we wanted Congresswoman Barbara Lee to be the Speaker of the House and ‘progressives’ were like nah, Pelosi is a leader and omg you should see how she claps. What a clap!” Sarsour wrote in a lengthy Facebook post.… Read More...

  • PragerU Brings New Suit Against Google in California State Court

    PragerU Brings New Suit Against Google in California State Court

    Conservative nonprofit PragerU filed suit against Google in California court on Tuesday for allegedly violating state law in restricting access to Prager’s educational videos on YouTube, according to a copy of the complaint obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation.

    The suit claims that YouTube’s restrictions on many of Prager’s videos violate California law in four ways: restricting the nonprofit’s freedom of speech contrary to the state constitution; discriminating against Prager on a religious and political basis in violation of the state’s civil rights act; “engaging in unlawful, misleading, and unfair businesses practices” contrary to the state’s unfair competition laws; and breach of contract for violating YouTube’s own terms of service.

    Democrat Senator Worries His Party Is Going Too Far Left

    Sen. Chris Coons, D-Del., is worried his party is alienating moderate voters by moving too far to the left.

    “If we as a Democratic Party are going to move from a minority at every level that is dedicated to resistance, to a majority that is capable of governing, we have got to move from grievance to optimism,” Coons said in a speech on Thursday, according to U.S. News and World Report.

    “And we’ve got to abandon a politics of anxiety that is characterized by wild-eyed proposals and instead deliver ideas and practical solutions.”

    Coons also warned that the growing Democratic push to abolish Immigration and Customs and Enforcement, which enforces the nation’s immigration laws, is counterproductive.

    Jimmy Kimmel Wades Into Politics Again and Misleads His Viewers Along the Way

    Late-night host Jimmy Kimmel on Thursday deleted a video clip from Twitter and YouTube that falsely informed viewers that a proposed Federal Communications Commission rule would force them to pay hundreds of dollars to complain to the FCC.

    “The FCC is considering a plan that would require U.S. citizens to pay $225 to make a complaint. So, if you’re mad about how high your cable bill is, soon you can pay the government $225 to complain about it,” the host of ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” told his viewers Wednesday night.

    “Boy, they really have the fingers on the pulse of us, don’t they?

  • Facebook, Amazon, Google and Twitter All Work With Left-Wing SPLC

    Facebook, Amazon, Google and Twitter All Work With Left-Wing SPLC

    Four of the world’s biggest tech platforms have working partnerships with a left-wing nonprofit that has a track record of inaccuracies and routinely labels conservative organizations as “hate groups.”

    Facebook, Amazon, Google, and Twitter all work with or consult the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) in policing their platforms for “hate speech” or “hate groups,” a Daily Caller News Foundation investigation found.

    The SPLC is on a list of “external experts and organizations” that Facebook works with “to inform our hate speech policies,” Facebook spokeswoman Ruchika Budhraja told TheDCNF in an interview.

    Facebook consults the outside organizations when developing changes to hate speech policies, Budhraja said, noting that Facebook representatives will typically hold between one and three meetings with the groups.

  • This Liberal Group Targets Ingraham, Sinclair, and Williamson

    This Liberal Group Targets Ingraham, Sinclair, and Williamson

    The Atlantic fired conservative writer Kevin Williamson on Thursday over his 4-year-old comments that women who obtain abortions should be prosecuted for murder.

    Williamson’s position is atypical for conservatives—who typically hold that women are the second victim of abortion—but his termination for it still represents a startling after-the-fact litmus test for one of the nation’s most prominent magazines.

    The Atlantic Editor-in-Chief Jeffrey Goldberg fired Williamson after left-wing group Media Matters dug up a September 2014 podcast where Williamson reiterated his belief, first articulated in a single tweet, that women who obtain abortions should be prosecuted for murder. Hanging was the conservative writer’s preferred form of capital punishment because “if the state is going to do violence, let’s make it violence,” Williamson said.
