Left’s belief in free market of ideas honoured only in the breach

What is even more disturbing is the incestuous relationship between the left and vast tracts of the legacy media

Left’s belief in free market of ideas honoured only in the breachThere’s a liberal truism that goes, people can believe anything they want – so long as it’s the same thing. As the Women’s March On Washington amply demonstrated, the left’s free market in ideas and opinions is honoured more in the breach than in the observance.

Awakening the female political voice

Donald Trump may have unintentionally succeeded where many have failed – he has awoken the feminine political voice

Awakening the female political voiceAs newly-minted U.S. president, Donald Trump has unintentionally succeeded where many have failed trying – he has awoken the feminine political voice. The proof is in the hundreds of thousands of women who protested in Washington, D.C., last weekend, and the millions who rallied around the world.

Clinton symbolizes the rise of matriarchy

Donald Trump seems incapable of seeing that the times have changed

Close to Skelhp where I live, there is a Steller rookery, a haul-out on the McRae Islets where the local population of more than 100 pinnipeds lounges and collectively demonstrate various types of dominance behaviour according to their…

Judge, jury and Twitter in the Jian Ghomeshi trialHave you ever worked on a trial, from start to finish? I have.
