‘Science’ Survey on Gay Marriage Opponents Converting to Approval in 20 Minute Conversation (or less) with a Gay is FRAUD

PAGING DR. EMILY LITELLA: ANOTHER SCIENCE FRAUD EXPOSED by Steve Hayward at PowerLine:

Last December Science magazine published the results of a survey that found people who had a conversation of as little as 20 minutes with a gay person changed their mind about gay marriage. You may well wonder why Science, usually concerned with settled scientific matters like global warming climate change, would jump on a research survey more suited for a public opinion or social science journal, and further you’d wonder why we’d want to rely on social science surveys to advance our judgment of this moral and legal controversy. (What next: open-office plans are really a sneaky gay plot to promote gay marriage, too? Because with no doors, no closets to hide in!)

The full article, “When contact changes minds: An experiment on transmission of support for gay equality,” is in the magazine’s closet behind the magazine’s paywall, but it isn’t very impressive. In fact it looks rather like a first-year graduate student survey project, and the conclusion has all of the usual tropes of such academic work today, including the phrase you see in almost all social science articles that prove a small and obvious point—“further research is needed”.

Washington Post Snarks about Marco Rubio’s Lack of Money

WASHINGTON POST ATTACKS RUBIO: HE’S NOT RICH! by John Hinderaker at PowerLine:

Every morning the Washington Post sends out an email with links to its featured stories of the day. Today, the Post’s number one story was: Does Rubio Have a Spending Problem? The factual basis for the Post’s article was that according to his financial disclosure forms, Marco Rubio has withdrawn $68,000 from a retirement account:

Marco Rubio made $174,000 as a U.S. senator last year. He earned $52,000 from book royalties and a university teaching position, and at least $5,000 more from rental property. (please read further)

Is Hillary Already Wrapping up the Illegal Immigrant Vote for 2016?

Hillary relying on the illegal immigrant vote in 2016?

The following article is from the editors at The Nation:

HOW IMMIGRANTS HAVE CHANGED THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY

Hillary Clinton’s evolution on immigration reform is a testament to the youthful movement that erupted during the Obama era.

“What a difference a disastrous midterm election makes. Before the 2014 vote, conventional wisdom in the Democratic Party still counseled political caution on immigration reform. Last summer, few were surprised when President Obama delayed announcing deportation relief until after the November vote; it was the kind of reluctant leadership the modern party has shown consistently on immigration. But less than a month into her campaign, Hillary Clinton struck a markedly different tone.

Clinton met with a group of undocumented students on May 5 and described an agenda that reflects just how much has changed since 2008. Young immigrants, in particular, are done waiting for politicians to catch up to the reality of their lives, and their rightful impatience fuels a movement that’s forcing the issue for Democrats and Republicans alike.”

Another Feminist Attempt at Thinking, Caring, Discovering her Swat

American universities today from coast to coast have become mammoth caves of the feminized newly-“learned” of mind, its content and sharing to shape a new American world free at last of anything dead white male.

Let’s take a peek at what these Obamalings chant when they gather together:

FEMINISTS DON’T CARE IF YOU LIKE HOT PINK, EAT SALADS OR SHAVE YOUR CROTCH

by Jessica Valenti at the Guardian

“Writer Polly Vernon, who has penned thought-provoking pieces such as “You hate me because I’m thin” and “Am I too old for cleavage?”, is writing a book about how feminists can be cool, fit “and maybe – just maybe – a little bit thinner.” Please read the entire article to discover the ‘things that matter in this leftier enclave of Obamaling America:

Hillary’s “Friend”, Sydney Blumenthal

RON FOURNIER, NATIONAL JOURNAL: Look, Sidney Blumenthal, for good reason was not allowed to work for the State Department, had business interests in Libya and was lobbying his friend in the State Department. That’s an obvious conflict of interest. And how does she answer it? She talks about this bubble and how she wants to reach out to people outside the bubble who were friends with her before she entered public office.

Another Bad Day at Hillary Rock

THE WORST DAY OF HILLARY CLINTON’S CAMPAIGN…..so far:

by Stephen F. Hayes at the Weekly Standard:

“Hillary Clinton had a very bad day.

In fact, she’s had a series of bad days since she announced her presidential bid April 12. But Monday was the worst of them.

In a bombshell report, the New York Times reported that Clinton, as secretary of state, used her private email to share private intelligence reports from noted conspiracy theorist and political hitman Sidney Blumenthal, at a time when Blumenthal was being paid by the Clinton Foundation and liberal political organizations that helped lay the groundwork for Clinton’s presidential campaign.

The emails included reports on Libya at a time when Blumenthal was seeking business in the country and included dubious information. The Times reported that Clinton nonetheless “took Mr. Blumenthal’s advice seriously” and “continued to pass around his emails even after other senior diplomats concluded that Mr. Blumenthal’s assessments were often unreliable.”

I Don’t Need No Daddy, BY Eileen F. Toplansky at the Thinker

“It’s been a troubling semester, but not because many of my students passively and/or actively resist the knowledge that I try to pass on to them. It’s been frustrating not merely because government regulations and mandates have made me into a secretary filling out a myriad of online forms. It’s been disheartening not only because leftist propaganda surrounds me and I am but one small voice in the academic desert trying to teach true American core values.

No, it’s been a sad and sometimes heartbreaking semester because many college students’ assorted troubles are related to the fact that they are bereft of wholesome father figures. The combination of resentment, hurt, anger, and defiant pride run through their writings. It affects everything they do, from having trust issues with the opposite sex to taking direction from anyone they view as an authority figure. Most carry an enormous chip on their shoulders and take offense at the slightest thing.

The following are unedited and reflect some of the Herculean struggles these young men and women face.

Now that I am older I see that you no longer hold that title for me to call you dad. Your absence in my life did not hurt but definitely helped me. I do not hold you accountable for your actions of only conversating with me through a Hallmark card and an $100 check on the inside to make it seem as though as if that was to help my mother or help me. Growing up I would always question where were you on important days like birthdays, Christmas and my birthday or even my 8th grade prom.

I have to admit that I do not miss you. Even if we never have a conversation again, I would feel no different because for 19 years I have trained myself to never feel neglected by a man again. You do not understand how many memories you missed out on. That father and daughter relationship is broken. I do not feel sympathy for you. You had two choices. Be a man and take care of what you put out or be a coward and walk away from your responsibility

Another young woman wrote:

Growing up without a father figure had to be one of the hardest situations I would possibly go through in my life. It made me feel more or less incomplete in many aspects of my childhood. Over the years I have had……” (please read on.) http://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2015/05/i_dont_need_no_daddy.html#ixzz3aj9dHws2
