Elizabeth Warren Again Calls For ‘Equal Pay,’ Ignores Pay Gap In Own Office

Warren’s women staffers earned 71 cents for each dollar earned by men in 2016

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) spoke out on the issue of gender pay equality in a speech on Thursday without noting the equal pay shortcomings in her own senate office, where women earned a fraction of what was earned by men in 2016.

In an address to liberal activists of the Progressive Change Campaign Committee, Warren said that she is continually reminded on Capitol Hill that she needs to push equal pay.

“Boy, do they keep reminding me about this on Capitol Hill the need to say this,” Warren said on Thursday. “We believe in equal pay for equal work.”

Ultra-Rich Gay Activist On Targeting Christians: It’s Time To ‘Punish The Wicked’

In a recent interview with Rolling Stone magazine, tech millionaire turned LGBTQ activist Tim Gill said he’s aiming to punish Christians who don’t want to participate in same-sex weddings.

For more than two decades, the software programmer has poured an estimated $422 million into various gay rights causes. After the Supreme Court ruled gay marriage legal in all 50 states in 2015, Gill turned his attention and resources to targeting Christians.

The election of Donald Trump, who claims to support gay rights but stocked his administration with anti-LGBTQ extremists, has only emboldened those looking to erase the gains of the past decade. Gill refuses to go on the defense. ‘We’re going into the hardest states in the country,’ he says. ‘We’re going to punish the wicked.’

EPIC Meme Destroys Liberals On Voter ID Laws

Calvin Freiburger reports somebody is trying to hack America’s elections all right, but it’s not Russia.

For years, voter fraud has been a major scourge of our democracy, from double-voting and illegal aliens voting to even votes cast in the name of dead people who remain on the voter rolls. Yet Democrats hysterically demonize simple election integrity measures such as voter ID (sometimes inadvertently peddling racism in the process). Three guesses why, and the first two don’t count.

Black Conservative Student: Here’s What Happened To Me On Campus After I Openly Supported Trump

“Diversity at my school stopped at skin color.”

As has become increasingly impossible to ignore, academia’s claim that it champions “diversity” does not include the most important and fundamental type of diversity: diversity of thought. Conservatives on college campuses across the country have seen in dramatic fashion over the last few years an open hostility, among both students and faculty alike, to those who hold mainstream conservative views. Kalasia Richer, an unapologetically conservative African American student, recently described to The Daily Wire just how serious that hostility became for her this year.

A Political Science and Communications double major and officer in her school’s College Republicans chapter, Richer says that her opposition to illegal immigration and support for Donald Trump resulted in a series of “violent” threats that were so serious that campus authorities felt it necessary to temporarily “relocate” her from her dorm and offer her a Public Safety officer to escort her to class.

Poll: Nearly Half Of Liberals Say Friend Supporting Trump Would Hurt Friendship

Almost half of liberal-leaning Democrats said that a friendship would be strained if they found out their friend had voted for President Trump, a new Pew Research Center poll found.

The survey, released Thursday, found that 47 percent of liberal Democrats said their relationships would be strained if they found out a friend backed Trump.

Comparatively, only 25 percent of conservative and moderate Democrats said a friend backing Trump would hurt their friendship. The poll also found that Democrats with higher education levels were more likely to say their friendships would be strained by a Trump-supporting friend.

Fifty-nine percent of Americans said it is “stressful and frustrating” to talk with those who have a different opinion about Trump. Nearly 70 percent of Democrats and Democratic-leaning voters said so, while 52 percent of Republicans and Republican-leaning respondents agreed.

Voting for Hillary Clinton was far less likely to impact a friendship, with just 13 percent of Republicans saying that a friend voting for the former Democratic presidential candidate would strain their friendship.

The Pew Research poll surveyed 2,505 American adults by phone from June 27 through July 9, and has a margin of error of 2.2 percent.

Elizabeth Warren Attends Martha’s Vineyard Dinner Hosted By Big Bank Executive

Democrat’s ‘Wolf of Wall Street’ Robert Wolf hosts Wall Street critic Warren

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.), one of the Senate’s fiercest Wall Street critics, attended a Democratic donor retreat over the weekend hosted by former UBS bank executive Robert Wolf, who last year lashed out against politicians that target Wall Street for political gain.

Wolf hosted Warren as part of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee’s annual donor retreat in Martha’s Vineyard. He wrote on Twitter that he was “honored” to host Warren, who was joined by other Democratic senators at the fundraiser.

Wolf, a financial backer and friend of former President Barack Obama, a Clinton Foundation donor, and a co-chair for the 2016 Democratic National Convention, has in the past portrayed Warren as a radical and denounced her treatment of Wall Street.

OUT Magazine Encourages Readers To ‘Drop’ Gay Republican Friends

OUT Magazine has encouraged its readers to “drop” gay conservative friends in a new article titled, “What To Do When Your Friend’s a Gay Republican.”

We drop friends all the time for a whole variety of reasons—they messed with our loves lives, they lied, they weren’t supportive—so why do some people think it’s such an outlandish idea to dump them for their political views?” asked actor, singer, and writer Michael Musto in his column for OUT Magazine, which featured a picture of former Breitbart Senior Editor Milo Yiannopoulos. “I think there’s a misguided sense that, ‘It’s a free country and people have the right to believe what they want. Why should I let their political opinions interfere with a long-running friendship?’”
