Canada: Dr. Jordan Peterson is in the fight of his life over political correctness, risking his career to stop the government from forcing citizens to use politically-motivated speech via hate speech laws. He explains how the death of free speech kills negotiation, which is the alternative to war. He blames the postmodernists who are waging an all-out assault on the West.

“Watch the documentary, VAXXED: From Cover-up to Catastrophe like I did and make up your own mind about vaccines and autism! GREAT MOVIE!” – Donald J. Trump, June 10, 2017 to his 31.3 million Twitter followers.

It really shouldn’t be that difficult, should it?
Can you IMAGINE if President Trump actually sent out that tweet?
A new bill, H.R. 1313, moving through Congress would allow companies to require employees to undergo genetic testing and enroll in a mandatory vaccine program or risk losing their job. Today, laws including the 2008 Genetic Privacy and Nondiscrimination Act (known as GINA) prohibits giving employers such power over their employees.
One of the most common myths about Israel is that it is an occupying force that systematically oppresses the indigenous Palestinian population, which suffers bitter subjugation, and when peace finally comes and the occupation ends, the Palestinians will be free to flourish.
Nobel Prize laureate José Saramago, for instance, charged that “what is happening in Palestine is a crime we can put on the same plane as what happened at Auschwitz.”
Many believe that what Israel is supposedly doing to the Palestinians is similar to the Nazi treatment of Jews during the Holocaust.
This pope’s inclination to advance an ideological stance over rational judgment does not bode well for Catholicism or the future of the West. Willful blindness endangers both.
On the papal flight back to Rome from Fatima, Francis held his customary en passant interview with hand-picked members of the press. Protective of their access, reporters on board are habitually reluctant to question aggressively or press for frankness. The aptly named Fátima Campos Ferreira, of Portuguese Radio and Television, asked the pontiff:
Why is it a “conspiracy theory” to think that a disgruntled Democratic National Committee staffer gave WikiLeaks the DNC emails, but not a conspiracy theory to think the emails were provided by Russia?
Which is the more likely scenario: That a frustrated employee leaked damaging emails to embarrass his bosses or a that foreign government hacked DNC computers for some still-unknown reason?
That’s a no-brainer, isn’t it?
This morning former CIA Director Michael Morell had an interesting question for the Obama administration on today’s episode of CBS This Morning. If Russian interference during the 2016 election was such a serious problem, what did they do to stop it? Morell, who was acting CIA director prior to John Brennan’s confirmation during Obama’s second term, noted that his successor said that interference from Russia was a big problem, and that he contacted his Russian counterparts to tell them to cut it out. Russia obviously ignored him.
Radio show host Dennis Prager’s conservative/libertarian educational video group Prager U teamed up with author and controversial Vanderbilt University professor Carol Swain to dispel the notion that the Republican Party is the racist entity in Washington, D.C.’s, two-party system.
