    What Students Say About Campuses When They’re Allowed To Be Honest

    As far back as 1965, George Harrison urged his listeners, “Think for yourself.” That was good, countercultural advice at the time, and it seems it still is. But the counterculture has since shifted right, especially on college campuses.

    In the wake of the American Civil Liberties Union’s disappointing decision to embrace free speech relativism, I found myself in a room filled with free speech champions late last week. The Network of Enlightened Women, a national book club for conservative college women and recent graduates, had gathered in our nation’s capital for their annual conference. READ MORE...

  • Journos Blame Fake News For Shooting, Claim Criticism Is Now Off Limits

    Journos Blame Fake News For Shooting, Claim Criticism Is Now Off Limits

    Liberal media outlets have more than lived up to the “fake news” moniker President Trump bestowed on them following the election, after they ginned up the term to excuse Hillary Clinton’s loss. Now they are using the Annapolis shooting to assert they should no longer be criticized by President Trump — or anyone in the press — for shoddy reporting.

    The man who killed four journalists inside the Capital Gazette newsroom on Thursday had a long running beef with the paper, because it reported in 2011 he was convicted for harassing a woman online. He sued for defamation, but the judge threw out his case. There is zero evidence his decision to open fire in the newsroom had anything to do with media criticism READ MORE...

  • SPLC Loses More Legitimacy With Supreme Court Win For Its Target

    SPLC Loses More Legitimacy With Supreme Court Win For Its Target

    Yesterday the Supreme Court released yet another blockbuster opinion keeping the authority of the First Amendment intact. In NIFLA v. Becerra, the court ruled 5-4 that California’s law, which required pregnancy centers to advertise abortion, violated free speech rights. This is a huge victory for free speech and it should be celebrated as such.

    The ruling also burnishes the credibility of the Alliance Defending Freedom, which successfully argued this case. In fact, it’s the ninth Supreme Court win in the past seven years for this nonprofit legal organization that focuses primarily on protecting the First Amendment. READ MORE...

  • CA Bill Would Ban Catholics From Teaching Their Kids The Catechism

    CA Bill Would Ban Catholics From Teaching Their Kids The Catechism

    Numerous commentators have raised concerns about a proposed bill currently in the California Senate, Assembly Bill 2943. The bill would amend the California Consumer Legal Remedies Act to prohibit “sexual orientation change efforts.”

    Most discussion of the bill has focused on its potential ban on Bible sales. It seems much more likely that the bill will make religious education programs the target of “death by litigation.”

    The proposed bill states: “The following unfair methods of competition and unfair or deceptive acts or practices undertaken by any person in a transaction intended to result or that results in the sale or lease of goods or services to any consumer are unlawful:…Advertising, offering for sale, or selling services constituting sexual orientation change efforts to an individual.” READ MORE...

  • Liberals’ Misleading Spin on Senate Republicans’ 2016 Supreme Court Confirmation Approach

    Liberals’ Misleading Spin on Senate Republicans’ 2016 Supreme Court Confirmation Approach

    Recent remarks by Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., show the script that the left will be using to oppose President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee to fill the vacancy from the retirement of Justice Anthony Kennedy.

    The most prominent point so far is that the Senate should wait until after the 2018 election to consider Trump’s nominee. Echoing Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., Feinstein, speaking in the Senate Judiciary Committee’s June 28 business meeting, said following the traditional confirmation pattern would be hypocritical.

    After Maryland Shooting, Trump Vows to ‘Reduce Violent Crime and to Protect Innocent Life’

    President Donald Trump honored the five victims killed in a shooting at the office of a local newspaper in Maryland on Thursday.

    “I’d like to address the horrific shooting that took place yesterday at Capital Gazette newsroom in Annapolis, Maryland,” Trump said Friday during a White House event. “This attack shocked the conscience of our nation and filled our hearts with grief.”

    “Journalists, like all Americans, should be free from the fear of being violently attacked while doing their job,” the president, who often clashes with the media, said. “To the families of the victims, there are no words to express our sorrow for your loss. Horrible, horrible loss. Horrible, horrible thing happened.” READ MORE...

    The Terrorists of the Islamic State Are Far From Finished

    A Wisconsin woman, Waheba Issa Dais, was charged on June 13 with providing material support to the Islamic State terrorist group, also known as ISIS.

    Federal prosecutors allege that the 45-year-old mother of two hacked social media accounts in order to recruit on behalf of ISIS. Furthermore, Dais is said to have provided instructions on how to make explosives and suggested potential targets for attacks, such as street festivals, summer celebrations, and churches.

    The arrest underscores the continuing threat posed by ISIS. Although it has been dealt a string of setbacks in Iraq and Syria, it continues to attract supporters drawn to its Islamist extremist ideology, which it disseminates on a wide array of social media platforms. READ MORE...
