    Persecution on a wide scale basis is knocking at the doorstep of every true believer, and the frequency and intensity of the knocking has exponentially increased. Just 8 years ago, no one was confused about which bathroom to use...and now, you can be expelled from West Virginia University for not properly using the correct invented pronoun to address anyone who is in a state of "transition" (read: Confusion).

    That didn’t take long. It was beyond question Hillary Clinton would play the race card. The only issue was when. Progressives are born without forearms, which affords them the ability to have so many such cards up their sleeves. But playing it this early and this forcefully does not demonstrate strength on Hillary’s part; it’s a testament to her insecurity and weakness. Calling Donald Trump a racist is neither new nor unexpected. Any elected official or person with an “R” after their name can count on that charge like you can count on the sunrise. That it came this early...

    When I was coordinating the U.S. response to Ebola in the fall of 2014, one frequent problem was false reports of Ebola cases in this country. Early symptoms of Ebola resemble flu. Even when we screened out the 99% of flu patients who had not been to Liberia, Sierra Leone, and Guinea (and therefore did not have Ebola), there were still many more suspected or feared cases than actual instances of Ebola in the U.S. Many sleepless nights in the winter of 2014-2015 ended, fortunately, with negative Ebola tests. But among the many reasons policy makers and citizens are not...

There should be a concern about the weakness in the economy,” said Douglas Holtz-Eakin, a former ­director of the Congressional Budget Office.“I would have thought that the economy would be at the center of the presidential campaign.

The state Capitol, Cortopassi said, has been overrun by “porkers feeding at the public trough,” and if long-term debt is not constrained, he said his grandchildren’s generation will bear the cost. He called his November ballot initiative – a proposal to require voter approval before the state issues revenue bonds for public works projects...

    Mariana Barillas dug this up at The Washington Examiner. Apparently, it’s discriminatory to fire migrant workers with expired papers. Moreover, Barillas added that the Department of Justice feels that to ask migrant workers for more work authorization forms could constitute a violation of a provision within the Immigration and Nationality Act that says employers cannot give excessive demands: The Justice Department released a video this week encouraging companies not to terminate immigrants after their employment authorization expires, and indicated that doing so is a form of discrimination. […]The video then tells viewers that the federal government has extended employment authorization...

    The U.S. could resettle nearly one million immigrants from the Muslim world under one term of a Hillary Clinton presidency, according to projections from Center for Immigration Studies’ Steve Camarota. Camarota explained that this large expansion in Muslim migration would be part of a massive increase in overall immigration, which the U.S. could experience under a President Hillary Clinton. Camarota noted that Clinton could potentially add as many as 10 million new immigrants to the U.S. during her first term alone, on top of the millions of illegal immigrants to whom she would grant immediate amnesty. Camarota’s analysis is based...

Of course. And yet Carolyn Y.

    Antarctica has confounded scientists, defying the dire predictions of scientists the South Pole would shrink and exacerbate sea level rise in the coming decades. Climate models predicted Antarctic sea ice would shrink as the world warmed, and that warming would boost snowfall over the southern continent. Neither of those predictions have panned out, and now scientists say “natural variability” is overwhelming human-induced warming. “Truth is, the science is complex, and that in most places and with most events, natural variability still plays a dominant role, and undoubtedly will continue to do so,” Chip Knappenberger, a climate scientist with the libertarian...
