“Respected Peer-Reviewed Journal” Falls For Ridiculous Hoax.

Whenever anyone points out being in a “peer-reviewed journal” as an indicator of an author’s veracity, just remember this story.

A piece on the “conceptual penis” published in the journal Cogent Social Sciences, self described as “a multidisciplinary open access journal offering high quality peer review across the social sciences: from law to sociology, politics to geography, and sport to communication studies. Connect your research with a global audience for maximum readership and impact.”

Self-Righteous Chef Promotes “Immigrants”

A Top Chef alum is making his pro-immigration stance known to all his customers amid President Donald Trump‘s refugee ban.

Mark Simmons, who starred in season 4’s Top Chef: Chicago, has been reminding patrons that the cuisine they enjoyed at his New Zealand-themed restaurant, Kiwiana, was made and served by immigrants.“Immigrants make America great (they also cooked your food and served you today),” it read on all the Brooklyn eatery’s receipts, according to a bill tweeted by NBC News contributor Mary Emily O’Hara.

O’Hara’s photo quickly went viral with over 79,000 retweets and more than 220,000 likes.

The world “illegal,” which is the crux of the immigration issue, does not appear in the story.  Nor does this pompous schmuck say that a “refugee” cooked the customer’s food.

Amazing how “illegal immigrant” “immigrant” and “refugee” are all used interchangeably.  It’s almost as if they’re trying to obscure the issue.

The March for Life vs The Women’s March

I’ll take a crack at the difference: one was about something, the other was a generic left-wing protest wrapped in vaginas and pussyhats.  Oh yeah, and the media obsessed over one and ignored the other.

A week after the Inauguration of Donald Trump, politically active women across America could choose to make themselves heard at two major rallies revolving around women’s issues. They could attend a pro-choice, feminist march known as the Women’s March or they could wait one week and attend the 44th annual pro-life, March for Life.Some lucky few, such as myself, were able to attend both.The marches had their similarities. Both marches were held in D.C. Both marches were heavily attended by women. And both marches attracted people from all over the country to participate. But each march was not made equal.Being physically at the marches, it is easy to recognize differences between the two. In fact, some of the differences were downright stunning.

Women Felt Threatened At The Womens’ March. By Women.

While hundreds of thousands of marchers felt like they were getting their message out during the Washington D.C. Women’s March Saturday, not everyone enjoyed the experience.“It was a brutal day,” Kristina Hernandez, director of communications for the anti-abortion organization Students for Life, told USA TODAY after the march.Hernandez said that the group of around 50 people she was marching with were harassed because of the signs they were carrying which said “Abortion betrays women.”“I did not feel safe at all,” Hernandez continued. She added that the unexpectedly large turnout for the march made it “so overwhelming.”

Muslim Group Funded By UK Taxpayers Has Some Controversial Things to Say

Much praised and UK taxpayer-funded Muslim group has some dodgy things to say.

Members of an ‘anti-extremism group’ which won praise from the Prime Minister have been found to have made homophobic and anti-Semitic comments.

Odara is a Muslim women’s group claiming to promote integration. It has received more than £150,000 of taxpayers’ money from counter-terrorism programme – Prevent.

Last year, then home secretary Theresa May said she was ‘proud’ to support the group ‘working to stand up against the extremists who seek to divide us’.
