As someone who underwent surgery from male to female and lived as a female for eight years before returning to living as a man, I know firsthand what it's like to be a transgender person -- and how misguided it is to think one can change gender through hormones and surgery. read more

Hillary's Latest Scandal: She And Bill Siphoned $100 Mil From Mideast Leaders
A new report from the Daily Caller News Foundation says that Persian Gulf states and their leaders donated $100 million to HIllary and Bill Clinton's controversial Clinton Family Foundation. (AP)
A new report from the Daily Caller News Foundation says that Persian Gulf states and their leaders donated $100 million to HIllary and Bill Clinton's

The investigation by the Daily Caller News Foundation has uncovered a disturbing pattern of the Clintons' raising money for the Clinton Foundation from regimes that have checkered records on human rights and that aren't always operating in the best interests of the U.S. By the way, the $100 million we mentioned above doesn't appear to include another $30 million given to the Clintons by two Mideast-based foundations and four billionaire Saudis. read more

Chicago Public Schools announced on Monday that students and staff must be granted unfettered access to intimate school facilities based on their chosen gender identity.

Put concretely, boys now have the "right" to undress in the girls' locker room before gym class so long as they say they would feel more comfortable doing so. Kids and teens have many things to worry about as they grow into adulthood and get an education. But having to deal with people of the opposite sex in their bathrooms and showers shouldn't be one of them. read more

In the bad old days of the Soviet Union, Stalin, Brezhnev and the rest would literally airbrush out of photographs those who fell out of favor. Killing them and sending family members to Siberia did not suffice; they had to be erased from collective memory.

In this famous photograph, commissars who were killed or were no longer of use were removed in the dark room one by one until Stalin was left alone at the end, finally satisfied. read more

A Spanish solar energy company benefiting from $191 million in financing from the Export-Import Bank declared bankruptcy last month, calling into question whether the embattled agency will see repayment of the tens of millions of dollars in taxpayer-backed loans on its balance sheets.

Abengoa, which operates worldwide, filed for Chapter 15 bankruptcy in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Wilmington, Del., and has until the end of October to restructure its $16.4 billion of debt. read more

"To listen to the climate change alarmist community, one would think that Earth has never been so warm as it is now. But it's been warmer, and sea levels have been higher, facts that the leader of the movement acknowledges.

James Hansen, the famed NASA scientist who stirred the climate scare when in 1988 he told a Senate committee that "global warming" -- yes, he used those words -- "is already happening now," has never backed off his claims, despite the fact that he's been demonstrably wrong. No one this side of Al Gore has had a larger impact on trafficking in fear and trying so hard to sow panic.

The narrative since that day in 1988 is that Earth is entering a dangerous warm era created by man's carbon dioxide emissions. Every heat wave, cold snap, drought, hurricane, heavy snow, torrential rain, and change in sea level has been supposedly caused by man. And all are allegedly unprecedented events.

Except they're not. It's been warmer, and extreme weather has visited us before, all in a time long before man began to drive cars and operate power plants that helped move him from an almost primitive existence to a modern one.

Hansen has even admitted this.

"The last interglacial period, 120,000 years ago, that's the last time it was warmer than today, sea level was 6 to 9 meters higher," he said in an interview with online magazine Yale Environment 360.

So it has been warmer, and sea levels have been higher. And those conditions were entirely natural. Yet the alarmists want us to believe that the predicted warmth of today -- which has yet to occur -- is man-caused.

"Climate scientists claim carbon dioxide emissions are driving the global warming trend since 1950, but they have trouble explaining warming that occurred early in the 20th century. Nearly half of the 20th century warming trend occurred from 1910 to 1945, but CO2 emissions didn't increase enough to explain most of the warming.
"In fact, the period 1910-1945 comprises over 40 per cent of the warming since 1900, but is associated with only 10 per cent of the carbon dioxide increase since 1900," Curry writes. "Clearly, human emissions of greenhouse gases played little role in causing this early warming."
"If the warming since 1950 was caused by humans, what caused the warming during the period 1910-1945?" Curry asks.

Curry also notes there's evidence the Earth has been warming for the past 200 years -- a period that began before human carbon dioxide emissions would have been a factor.
