Follow-up has been conceived for the guffaw-inducing women’s march spectacles, so as to advance this “new wave of militant feminist struggle.” The Guardian has published the plan, which is “at once anti-racist, anti-imperialist, anti-heterosexist and anti-neoliberal” and will strike a blow against “the violence of the market, of debt, of capitalist property relations, and of the state; the violence of discriminatory policies against lesbian, trans and queer women; the violence of state criminalization of migratory movements; the violence of mass incarceration; and the institutional violence against women’s bodies through abortion bans and lack of access to free healthcare and free abortion.” Kyle Smith shines a light on the authors.

Being a racial impostor hasn’t worked out so well for Rachel Dolezal. But with Joshua Marcus, it’s different. You see he really is trans-racial, because his homosexual partner is of mixed origin. Even though Marcus admits that he is a “white Jew,”


I can’t help but feel that my cultural and racial identity has changed. See, my boyfriend is mixed race. He has four grandparents of four different races.

…not to mention puppies:
Two dogs and six puppies were found and rescued at the main Dakota Access Pipeline camp

2 Timothy 3:1-6, 9, 13

But mark this:
There will be terrible times in the last days.
People will be lovers of themselves . . .
not lovers of the good . . .
lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God . . . .
Have nothing to do with such people.
They are the kind who worm their way into homes . . . .
But they will not get very far because . . .
their folly will be clear to everyone. . . .
deceiving and being deceived.

Prior to Donald Trump’s election to the White House, the DOW’s record for most continuous closing high trading days was set in January of 1987 under President Ronald Reagan. That month, the DOW posted closing highs 12 times in a row. This record was broken on Friday.
For 16 consecutive days, beginning on February 9th, the DOW Jones Average has reached an all-time high. Yet, this is not the only record that President Trump has set.
Here are a few more stock market highlights since his election on November 8:
  • The average DOW daily closing has increased more than 13% since the election.
  • More than 40% of the trading days since November 9, the DOW recorded all-time highs (30 times).
  • Over two thirds (50) of the 72 trading days for the DOW since the election had a closing mark that was at least the highest, 2nd highest or 3rd highest closing day in history.
  • This is only the 2nd time since 1937 that the stock market hit two new closing highs in the four trading days after the Presidential inauguration. The first was in January of 1965, when Lyndon Johnson was sworn in.  And the second was right after the Trump Inauguration.
  • Since Trump’s inauguration, the DOW has risen 5%. Trump’s first month in office is the DOW’s biggest gain for any president in his first 30 Days since 1909.

The left has been championing a $15 minimum wage for fast food workers for quite some time, not realizing that a higher minimum wage will cause fast food workers to lose their jobs to robots. Case in point: Wendy’s.
The Associated Press reports that Wendy’s has announced that they will be installing “self-ordering kiosks at about 1,000 locations by the end of the year” because they’re cheaper and ease the burden of long lines.

“Your child is not at risk from a transgendered child. You are projecting your personal feelings on that. And I know that’s going to just anger a lot of people. I don’t want to tell people ever, ever how to be parents, but don’t put your stuff on other people’s kids.”
