IHRDC Calls on the World to Prevent Iran from Executing Prisoners

NEW HAVEN, CONNECTICUT – Today, ILNA, an official Iranian news outlet, announced the creation of a special commission to “determine the fate of recent arrestees.” If history is any barometer, the creation of this commission and the men appointed to it, are ominous signs that the regime intends to severely punish, and execute, demonstrators and other human rights activists. The world cannot stand by and watch.

“Domestic Terrorists” Gear Up For July 4th Tea Parties

imageOn April 15, over a million people—who had already smelled the contaminated coffee of the Obama regime’s galloping socialism-cum-communism-cum totalitarianism—attended thousands of Tea Parties across the country. Since then, the Tea Party movement has grown exponentially, with hundreds more taking place on a regular basis and attended by Republicans, Democrats, Independents, Libertarians, et. al.

Persistent Myths in Feminist Scholarship

“Harder to kill than a vampire.” That is what the sociologist Joel Best calls a bad statistic. But, as I have discovered over the years, among false statistics the hardest of all to slay are those promoted by feminist professors. Consider what happened recently when I sent an e-mail message to the Berkeley law professor Nancy K. D. Lemon pointing out that the highly praised textbook that she edited, Domestic Violence Law (second edition, Thomson/West, 2005), contained errors.

Black conservatives: crucified by the left, ignored by the right!

At a tea party in Lakewood Ranch, Florida, I invited all veterans to join me on stage as I sang “God Bless the USA” in tribute to them. It was truly a moving experience. Veterans, old and young, and active service men and women came forward. The audience applauded wildly expressing their love for them. Such tributes NEVER happen at left-wing secular progressive events. Their goal is ALWAYS about tearing down America, as opposed to celebrating America, which I do in my original song, “Celebrate America.”
