Sleeping Giants organized campaigns on social media and through leftist media outlets to apply pressure against advertisers who support conservatives until they pull their ads. Breitbart lost 90% of its advertisers in two months. It is ironic that the agents in Sleeping Giants, who are linked to the advertising industry, want to keep their identities hidden to prevent counter-boycotts against their own clients.
Mark Levin says that Gowdy ignored many sound reasons for Rosenstein’s impeachment – and sees his performance in this matter as a repeat of Gowdy’s “go-nowhere” treatment of the Benghazi investigation, which he also chaired.

The University of Minnesota has proposed a policy that could punish students by expelling them, and professors by firing them, if they do not use someone’s preferred gender pronoun. Students are allowed to choose from a list of personal pronouns on the campus website: He/him/his, none, prefer not to specify, she/her/hers, they/them/theirs, or ze/zir/zirs. They can also specify their gender as follows: Agender, gender nonconforming, genderqueer, man, nonbinary, prefer not to specify, two spirit, woman, or they can enter their own. This policy is dangerous because it goes beyond censorship and actually compels speech.
Non-citizens can vote in San Francisco’s Board of Education elections after the city’s Department of Elections ruled to do away with citizenship requirements. Non-citizens seeking to vote in San Francisco’s Board of Education elections must be at least 18 years old and residents of the city, and must also be parents, caregivers or legal guardians of children under 19 years old who reside in the city. School boards determine property tax rates. Illegal immigrants can obtain driver’s licenses, state-paid medical insurance, receive in-state college tuition, and may practice law in California.
