Get this: no less than six Planned Parenthood clinics across four Western states are now planning to close up shop. But it’s not because all those nasty women-hating Republicans are attacking abortion. These clinics are closing because of Obamacare.
Ok, here’s a doozie.
TAMPA – A man accused of shooting his two roommates Friday in a Tampa Palms apartment told police he shared neo-Nazi beliefs with the men until he converted to Islam then killed them because they showed disrespect for his faith.The revelations weren’t over.
Officers found a garage stocked with bomb materials as they arrived to investigate the double homicide, leading to federal explosive charges against Brandon Russell — a Florida National Guardsman and admitted neo-Nazi who kept a framed photo of Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh on his dresser.
Russell, 21, was the man Tampa police officers found crying outside his door Friday evening when murder suspect Devon Arthurs led them back to the apartment that the four had shared in an affluent suburb north of the University of South Florida. Russell, wearing camouflage, had just returned from National Guard duties.
Police went to the apartment in the Hamptons at Tampa Palms after Arthurs, 18, told them he fatally shot his roommates Jeremy Himmelman, 22, and Andrew Oneschuk, 18, according to a Tampa police report.
While searching the garage, investigators found a cooler full of a white, cake-like explosive material known as HMTD, or hexamethylene tiperoxide diamine, according to a criminal complaint filed in U.S. District Court. Nearby, they found explosive precursors — chemicals that can be mixed to create explosives — including potassium chlorate, potassium nitrate, nitro methane and more than a pound of ammonium nitrate in a package addressed to Russell.

Can’t say “no” to Islamic culture. That would be some kind of phobia.

A win for campus free speech came out of Nashville this past week when the Tennessee State Senate unanimously passed the Campus Free Speech Protection Act by a vote of 30-0. Senate Bill 723 was signed into law by Governor Bill Haslam (R) on May 9.
The measure is “the most comprehensive state legislation” of its kind, according to Robert Shibley, Executive Director of the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE), an organization dedicated to protecting constitutional rights on college campuses.
The new law prohibits academic institutions from rescinding invitations to speakers, as well as from creating “free speech zones” or “safe spaces.” In addition to these restrictions, the law also requires colleges to adopt campus-wide free speech policies, similar to the policy enacted by the University of Chicago at the beginning of the 2016-2017 school year.
Several states have pending campus Free Speech measures in response to several controversies on college campuses within the past year, including the controversy this past February when the University of California Berkeley rescinded an invitation to Breitbart editor and outspoken Trump-supporter Milo Yiannopoulos after students staged violent protests.
In March, American Enterprise Institute scholar Charles Murray was greeted at Middlebury College in Vermont by a mob of students who shut down his speech.
Conservative author, Ann Coulter, was forced to cancel her speech at UC Berkeley after concerns of safety arose.
Free speech bills have been passed by Colorado, Texas, Utah and Virginia, while similar legislation is pending in California, Illinois, Michigan, North Carolina, and Wisconsin. A campus free speech bill was narrowly defeated in the Louisiana House of Representatives on May 18.
