It Gets Better' may not so good at preventing youth LGBT suicides: study

It Gets Better' may not so good at preventing youth LGBT suicides: study
- Launched in 2010 in response to reports of ‘LGB’ youth suicides, ‘It Gets Better’ eventually collected more than 50,000 video remarks, including then-President Barack Obama, Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, and Hillary Clinton.
Meant to encourage, ‘It Gets Better’ may have had the opposite effect. The study, found in the Journal of Homosexuality, has produced stunning reports in gay-oriented media that  previously lauded the Dan Savage project.
A headline at the LGBT-targeted Logo Network’s NewNowNext’s website blares, “‘It Gets Better’ Is Bad Advice For Gay Kids, Study Claims,” and may “do more harm than good.”

Trump's Deportations are 'Ethnic Cleansing'

 Trump's Deportations are 'Ethnic Cleansing'
Gutiérrez, for years one of the most rabid and frequent advocates for amnesty on Spanish-language television, leveled the on its face ridiculously false charge as part of a Univision report on the Trump administration’s early, swift success (as demonstrated by ICE statistics) in reversing the large-scale collapse of immigration law enforcement that was a hallmark of the closing years of the Obama era.
The amped-up rhetoric is part of a concerted effort by Democrats, activists and their liberal media allies to portray Trump and Republicans generally as anti-Latino and ‘criminalizing immigrants’ by the very act of enforcing the laws on the books.
