Sooner or later there is going to be a mutiny in the British Army. As exhibit a) I present this essay — titled “The Army Needs More Feminists” — by some brown-nosing major, presumably written with a view to ingratiating himself with his PC superiors.As exhibit b) I present this video of a bunch of squaddies protesting at the fact that one of their ex-comrades has been chucked out of the Army for the ‘crime’ of posing for a selfie with Tommy Robinson. Mutiny is not something you associate with the British Army and its proud traditions of discipline and loyalty to the Crown. But I see after a quick search that there was one as recently as 2013 when 16 soldiers of the Yorkshire Regiment were court-martialled for “disobeying a lawful command” after staging a sit-down at a parade. Their complaint — apparently in response to an unpopular captain and colour sergeant — was that they were being “led by muppets.” Since … [Read more...] about Delingpole: The British Army Needs Less Feminism and Diversity Outreach – and more Tommy Robinson
Home Daily News Does a diverse bench really matter? Defending Justice By Ruthe Ashley Posted October 18, 2018, 6:00 am CDT Ruthe Ashley It has been said that justice is blind, and for the legal profession, that is the hope and the ideal that we believe in. Unfortunately, in reality “justice” has many factors that influence outcomes, and the lack of diversity on the bench can lead to unjust results. Many studies have concluded that being “of color” in the criminal justice system in many instances may lead to increased arrests, higher penalties and more incarceration. “Driving while black” is a reality that one cannot understand unless one lives with it daily. As a woman lawyer of color, the work of diversity and inclusion in the legal profession has been a passion and mission ever since I received my ticket to practice. In law school, reading the Korematsu case and Brown v. Board of Education instilled in me the responsibility that I had to change … [Read more...] about Does a diverse bench really matter?
FULLERTON, Calif. (AP) — Pushy midday shoppers nose their carts through the Korean market, stocking up on bottled kimchi and seaweed spring rolls. A few doors away, customers grab pho to go at a Vietnamese takeout counter. Across the street, lunchtime diners line up for tacos "al pastor" — spit-roasted pork — at a Mexican-style taqueria. It's a snapshot of how much Orange County, California, has changed. For decades, the county southeast of Los Angeles represented an archetype of middle-class America, a place whose name evoked a "Brady Bunch" conformity set amid freeways, megachurches and Disneyland's spires. The mostly white, conservative homeowners voted with time-clock regularity for Republican candidates like Richard Nixon, whose getaway from Washington, the Western White House, sat on the coast. The Korean barbecue shops and Mexican bakeries along Orangethorpe Avenue in Fullerton are a signpost of the shifting demographics and politics that have emboldened … [Read more...] about Orange County, California’s diversity emboldens Democrats

In a very purple district stretching east from Tucson to New Mexico, Lea Marquez Peterson, the Republican running for an open House seat here, needed every single one. “I need all the support I can get, from every Republican entity out there,” she said in an interview afterward over coffee. “I’d love to see Hispanic voter turnout surprise everybody.” In a year when a record number of women are running for Congress, Ms. Marquez Peterson, who leads the local Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, represents a rare combination for the … [Read more...] about Arizona Candidate Gives Republicans Diversity, but Perhaps Not Victory
