These kids are what are being called "Digital Natives," which means that they grow up on the internet. And many of these kids are being exposed to alternative history, conservative view-points and are generally able to break out of the liberal media stronghold being propogated by Hollywood, and cable television.
Who at @boyscouts thought that having an unpredictable, ranting lunatic speak to children was a good idea? I'd pull my son out. #Shame
Trump didn't scandalize these kids, believe me. He emboldened them to follow their dreams, and make themselves great!
Liberal parents vowed to pull their kids out of the Scouts... And you know what? That'd be great! No more identity and degenerate politics for the scouts! If #LibExit happens, maybe the Scouts could be Great Again!
Leftist Thugs Try To Shut Down Church Militant Men's Conference:
A local "antifascist" group is trying to crush free speech and silence dissent by protesting Church Militant's upcoming men's conference. The group is also smearing Church Militant as "anti-woman" and "hateful."
The Michigan Peoples Defense Network (MPDN) announced on Facebook its intent to hold a press conference on the sidewalk in front of Church Militant studios in Ferndale Friday, July 28, at 5 p.m. ET. The purpose is to announce its August 5 "Shut Down Church Militant's Anti-Woman Conference" event, which will involve picketing outside the Wyndham Garden Hotel in Sterling Heights, where the third annual Strength and Honor Conference will be held. Members hope the protest will get the event shut down, touting their 2014 victory closing down a men's conference in St. Clair Shores.
"As the radical Christian right rises in America, having supported Donald Trump’s campaign of hatred against the most marginalized," MPDN's announcement reads, "it is more vital than ever that the community stands against hate draped in a cross."
MPDN falsely characterizes Church Militant's Strength and Honor Conference as a "men's rights" event, condemning the alleged "hateful messages" spread at this "anti-woman" event.
"[T]he claim that the conference is about 'men's rights' is a deliberate distortion," stated Church Militant's official press release Monday. "The conference is about men's obligations, not 'rights.'"
In fact, Strength and Honor — the third conference to date — is devoted to fostering men's growth in virtues like charity and humility by promoting the notion of selfless sacrifice and laying down one's life for the sake of the other. The event is meant to help men be better husbands, fathers, sons and brothers, modeling themselves after the Perfect Man, Jesus Christ.
"Church Militant is proudly pro-woman, pro-life and pro-immigrant," the press release concluded.
Western (White) Male Sperm Count Reaches Record Low:
Sperm levels among Western men have plunged to a record low, new research reveals.
It has fallen by more than 50% in 40 years – and is showing no signs of slowing down.
The study did not examine causes but scientists believe the amount of chemicals used in everyday products, industry and farming may be behind the crisis.
Researchers from the Hebrew University-Hadassah Braun School of Public Health and Community Medicine and the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, screened 7,500 studies that took place between 1973 and 2011.
The study was led by Dr Hagai Levine and Dr Shanna H Swan.
Dr Levine said: “This is an urgent wake-up call for researchers and health authorities around the world to investigate the causes of the sharp drop in sperm count, with the goal of prevention.”
Dr Swan added: “Decreasing sperm count has been of great concern since it was first reported 25 years ago. This shows the decline is strong and continuing.”
“The fact that the decline is seen in Western countries strongly suggests that chemicals in commerce are playing a causal role in this trend.”
The study, published in the Human Reproduction Update, found no significant decline in sperm count was seen in South America, Asia and Africa.
Feds Arrest IT Staffer For Wasserman Schultz Trying To Leave Country:
(Daily Caller) - FBI agents seized smashed computer hard drives from the home of Florida Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s information technology (IT) administrator, according to two sources with knowledge of the investigation.
Pakistani-born Imran Awan, long-time right-hand IT aide to the former Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chairwoman, has since desperately tried to get the hard drives back, an individual whom FBI investigators interviewed in the case told The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group.
The congressional source, speaking on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the probe, confirmed that the FBI has joined what Politico previously described as a Capitol Police criminal probe into “serious, potentially illegal, violations on the House IT network” by Imran and three of his relatives, who had access to the emails and files of the more than two dozen House Democrats who employed them on a part-time basis. Capitol Police have also seized computer equipment tied to the Florida lawmaker. Awan’s younger brothers, Abid and Jamal, his wife, Hina Alvi, and Rao Abbas, Imran’s best friend, are also under investigation. There have been no arrests in the case.
There is also evidence of financial schemes that extend beyond the Capitol Police’s purview and may expand to Pakistan, where Imran spends significant portions of the year. Speaker of the House Paul Ryan said in March that the Capitol Police are “getting the kind of technical assistance they need to do that. This is under an active criminal investigation, their capabilities are pretty strong but, they’re also able to go and get the kind of help they need from other sources.” The brothers’ stepmother independently filed court documents in Virginia accusing the brothers of wiretapping and extorting her.
Soon after Imran began working for Wasserman Schultz in 2005, his two brothers and two of their wives — plus Abbas and another friend — began appearing as IT staffers on the payrolls of other House Democrats. Collectively, the Awan group has been paid $4 million since 2009. Fellow IT staffers interviewed by TheDCNF said the Awans were often absent from weekly meetings and email exchanges. One of the fellow staffers said some of the computers the Awans managed were being used to transfer data to an off-site server. Shortly after the criminal probe was revealed in February, Imran abruptly moved out of his longtime home on Hawkshead Drive in Lorton, Va., and listed it for rent on a website that connects landlords with military families.
One of new tenants — a Marine Corps veteran married to a female Navy Officer — said he found “wireless routers, hard drives that look like they tried to destroy, laptops, [and] a lot of brand new expensive toner.” The tenants called the Naval Criminal Investigative Service, and not long after, FBI agents arrived together with the Capitol Police to interview them and confiscate the equipment. The Marine spoke on condition of anonymity because of concerns for his wife’s naval career, saying she doesn’t want to be associated with a national security incident. “It was in the garage. They recycled cabinets and lined them along the walls. They left in a huge hurry,” the Marine said. “It looks like government-issued equipment. We turned that stuff over.” Wasserman Schultz resigned as DNC chief in July 2016 after the committee’s IT system was hacked. She has since refused to fire Imran despite learning that he is a target of a criminal investigation.
The National Security Agency and Federal Bureau of Investigation violated specific civil liberty protections during the Obama years by improperly searching and disseminating raw intelligence on Americans or failing to promptly delete unauthorized intercepts, according to newly declassified memos that provide some of the richest detail to date on the spy agencies’ ability to obey their own rules.
The memos reviewed by The Hill were publicly released on July 11 through Freedom of Information Act litigation by the American Civil Liberties Union.
They detail specific violations that the NSA or FBI disclosed to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court or the Justice Department's national security division during President Obama’s tenure between 2009 and 2016. The intelligence community isn't due to report on compliance issues for 2017, the first year under the Trump administration, until next spring.
The NSA says that the missteps amount to a small number — less than 1 percent — when compared to the hundreds of thousands of specific phone numbers and email addresses the agencies intercepted through the so-called Section 702 warrantless spying program created by Congress in late 2008.
