Fidel Castro and Che Guevara are not heroes

“They are using my culture to present their dumb ideology of Aztlán”

Chicanos go into Mexico and violate Mexican laws

Re: “Who does Chicano Park belong to?” Neighborhood News.

An embarrassment of Chicano park and the Anti-American sentiment: I feel sad for Chicanos and immigrants who participate in this act of hostility.

Not all Mexican Americans feel this way. I grew up back in the days when Chicanos didn’t speak to immigrants. I remember taking Chicano studies and telling myself They are using my culture to present their dumb ideology of Aztlán. I see their ideology as crying over spilt milk. The Aztec Empire did the same thing.

Mexico is looking toward a better tomorrow. Chicanos need to get over this. Chicanos go into Mexico and violate Mexican laws and then they start crying to go back to the States for protection.

Not all Mexican Americans are anti-American. I was born in Mexico and grew up in L.A. I thank this country for allowing me to be part of it. The USA and Mexico both have dark histories. We don’t like it, but we learn not to repeat them. Fidel Castro and Che Guevara are not heroes — people need to read about them. The murals are beautiful, but when it gets political it’s wrong.

I’m a Pediatrician. How Transgender Ideology Has Infiltrated My Field and Produced Large-Scale Child Abuse

The transgender movement has gained legs in the medical community and in our culture by offering a deeply flawed narrative. The scientific research and facts tell a different story.

Transgender politics have taken Americans by surprise, and caught some lawmakers off guard.

Just a few short years ago, not many could have imagined a high-profile showdown over transgender men and women’s access to single-sex bathrooms in North Carolina.

But transgender ideology is not just infecting our laws. It is intruding into the lives of the most innocent among us—children—and with the apparent growing support of the professional medical community.

As explained in my 2016 peer reviewed article, “Gender Dysphoria in Children and Suppression of Debate,” professionals who dare to question the unscientific party line of supporting gender transition therapy will find themselves maligned and out of a job.

Leahy: MAGA Football League Coming to a Stadium Near You

Reports that Vince McMahon has sold $100 million of stock in WWE, the publicly traded company he has run since 1982, apparently for the purpose of relaunching the XFL, is welcome news indeed to football fans across the country who have abandoned the social justice warrior political operation formerly known as the National Football League.

The wrestling impresario will reportedly provide no details on his potential new venture until January 25, 2018 at the earliest. While it is not clear if he plans to compete directly with the NFL in the fall, such direct competition–offering a celebration of American exceptionalism through the sport of professional football–would be welcomed by those football fans and voters who chose to Make America Great Again by electing Donald Trump President of the United States in November 2016.

“Vince McMahon has established and is personally funding a separate entity from WWE, Alpha Entertainment, to explore investment opportunities across the sports and entertainment landscapes, including professional football. Mr. McMahon has nothing further to announce at this time,” a spokesperson for WWE told Breitbart News on Friday.

McMahon appears intent on resurrecting the XFL brand for the league he launched for one interesting but unsuccessful season in 2001, in partnership with NBC, but MAGAFL is a branding that is likely to resonate even more powerfully with his target market–traditional Americans who love football but are sick and tired of the social justice warriors who play in, own, and run the NFL.

Facebook is a Social Catastrophe – Jonathan Haidt (Video)

With all the recent findings of Facebook’s psychological exploits of its users, its disastrous long term effects on society, combined with their unethical practice of selling your privacy and data to corporations and the nanny-state, how does anyone in their right mind voluntarily continue to use Facebook and social media?

Report: Expect ‘Full Trump,’ Unchained, in 2018

If you thought President Donald Trump was great in 2017, you ain’t seen nothing yet: wait until Trump 2018, a report from Axios’s Mike Allen on Friday morning argues.

Citing multiple sources who have met or spoken recently with the president, Allen reports that those in the know in Washington should expect the “full Trump” in 2018—the president’s upcoming second year.

“If you ask some close to President Trump what worries them most about 2018, it’s not Robert Mueller’s probe,” Allen writes under a headline saying to expect Trump to be “unchained” in 2018. “It’s that establishment guardrails of 2017 come down — and Trump’s actual instincts take over.”

“Next year will bring ‘full Trump,’ said one person who recently talked to the president,” Allen adds.

Allen notes that most of Trump’s major 2017 achievements could have been made by any old traditional Republican, from the tax cuts plan to Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch and cutting regulations.

“Most of those in his current decision-making circle — even if they’re not mainstream Republicans — are defending mainstream Republican principles like free trade and an internationalist view of foreign policy,” Allen writes. “But top officials paint a different portrait of Trump when it comes to what he really wants on trade, immigration and North Korea — but has been tamped down by skeptical staff and Cabinet officials.”

Mark Hamill Hurts

Mark Hamill was so invested in the character of Luke Skywalker and the universe of Star Wars. You can see his enthusiasm in the way he speaks. This was more than a job or a paycheck. He signed on for the sequel trilogy only because he believed George Lucas, Harrison Ford, and Carrie Fischer would be with him to continue their characters’ stories. Sadly, Disney took Star Wars from George Lucas after the three actors were signed to contracts.
