    The United States Military Academy at West Point said Wednesday that an investigation is underway regarding a photograph that shows 16 black cadets in uniform posing with their fists in the air. ďWe can confirm that the cadets in this photo are members of the U.S. Military Academyís Class of 2016,Ē West Pointís director of public affairs, Lt.

    If you've felt your blood pressure rise after seeing passengers being served champagne on the tarmac while you're fighting for overhead space in coach, you are not alone. A new study finds that class division in the skies can have a real and occasionally dangerous effect on passengers in both sections of a plane. And when economy-class passengers are forced to pass through the luxurious first-class area on their way to the cramped economy seats, the rate of air rage incidents is more than seven times higher than if there were no first-class seats at all. Researchers report that the...

An investigation suggests there was co-operation between the regime and the terror group over the city of Palmyra, which was held by ISIS for nearly a year before it was retaken by Syrian forces in March. They also appear to show ISIS and the Syrian government made a deal to trade oil for fertiliser.

The United States has told Pakistan it will have to finance the purchase of U.S. F-16 fighter jets itself after members of the U.S. Congress objected to the use of government funds to pay for them. The U.S. government said in February it had approved the sale to Pakistan of up to eight F-16 fighter jets built by Lockheed Martin Corp LMT.N, as well as radar and other equipment in a deal valued at $699 million. However, Republican Senator Bob Corker said he would use his power...

Those rules and regulations were issued in 2014 to regulate media coverage of the "war...

    California politicians have voted down a proposal to designate May 26 - the actor's birthday - as John Wayne Day. The idea was rejected after some said Wayne had made racist comments against blacks and Native Americans. The resolution for John Wayne Day was submitted by Assemblyman Matthew Harper, who described Wayne as the "prototypical American Hero, symbolizing such traits as self-reliance, grace under pressure, resolve and patriotism." But Harper's colleague Lorena Gonzalez said Wayne's movies showed a lot of Native Americans being killed and that they sanctioned the white occupation of the continent. Assemblyman Luis Alejo also complained that...

    A 2016 Fusion Issues Poll surveyed 1,045 adults from ages 18 to 35. The survey revealed how young people feel about a number of social justice issues related to race, especially reparations. For example, 62 percent of young people say they are opposed to the government providing reparations to African-Americans for slavery, while 32 percent support the measure. However, the breakdown is much different along racial lines. For example, 62 percent of Blacks and 40 percent of Hispanics say they support reparations, while a paltry 21 percent of whites are in favor. Moreover, even when it comes to a mere...

And even people who are sympathetic to the reparations idea ó and who acknowledge the continued imprint of slavery on society ó have often argued that there is no way to distinguish descendants who have provable claims to compensation from those who do not, partly because enslaved people usually went...

Living costs for the richest households would only increase by 4 percent.Obama wants to implement the Enviromental Protection Agency’s Clean Power Plan,...

He did this even while reminding Americans of, some would say, his rare lapses in true leadership: his 1994 bipartisan legislation to lower crimes rates in cities. When confronted by low-information Black Lives Matter activists during his speech in Philadelphia last week, he wilted. It took him 24 hours, but eventually, after an eloquent defense of his 1994 leadership, he groveled, whimpering, "I almost want to apologize." Why apologize, Mr. President? The incarceration of criminals that followed that 1994...

    Damascus, April 12, Interfax - Syrian President Bashar al-Assad sees no future for his country and the entire region without the Christian presence, Hieromonk Stefan (Igumnov), secretary for inter-Christian relations at the Moscow's Patriarchate's Department for External Church Relations, told reporters after a meeting with al-Assad on Tuesday. "During the talks today, Bashar al-Assad noted that Syria has traditionally been a multi-faith country, and both its future and the future of the Middle East is inconceivable without the Christian presence," he said. According to him, al-Assad noted the crucial peacekeeping and humanitarian role of the Russian Orthodox Church in efforts...

    The story of Putinís fabled billions is a case study of something which people passionately believe in independently of any facts. As often happens in such cases, those who believe in that thing then hunt around for facts to prove it true. Every so often they come up with facts they claim proves it true. On careful examination however it turns out they do nothing of the sort. When that is pointed out to the true believers it does not change their belief that what they believe is true. Instead they retreat into denial and set off hunting for new...

    Many of the exact same groups that participated in Occupy Wall Street and helped organize protest rallies in Ferguson and Baltimore are now promising to bring us ďthe largest civil disobedience actions in a generationĒ. I recently wrote about the trouble that radical leftists have caused by attempting to disrupt Trump campaign events, but now there is a very organized effort to turn this into a national movement. On March 19th, thousands of angry protesters will descend on Trump Tower in New York City to denounce Donald Trumpís ďfascist policiesĒ, and on April 2nd dozens of leftist organizations will join...

    NPR unintentionally reveals the existence of ‚Äúblack privilege‚ÄĚ This three minute audio segment from NPR is called ‚ÄúBlind hiring, while well meaning, may create unintended consequences.‚ÄĚIt says that ‚Äúblind hiring‚ÄĚ is a process where job applicants are interviewed by computer instead of in person, so there is no bias regarding gender or race. Applicants are given online tests such as doing a math problem, or writing computer code.I think this is a great idea.In the NPR audio segment, the ‚Äúunintended consequence‚ÄĚ of ‚Äúblind hiring‚ÄĚ is explained by a black female college student, who complains that under ‚Äúblind hiring,‚ÄĚ she would...

    In the wake of the murder of his former player, defensive end Will Smith, this weekend, New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton issued a challenge to Black Lives Matter, to stand-up and protest black-on-black violence, the same way they protest white-on-black violence. Actually, heís not. That would be helpful. Instead, heís calling for a gun ban. In a USA Today Sports article, Payton let fly:

    It's hard to say why former President Bill Clinton went so far off-script to defend his 1994 anti-crime law against Black Lives Matter hecklers at a Philadelphia rally for his wife's presidential campaign.

    That Facebook is made up of employees which, just like the rest of society, represent America at large is something which can't be denied. To me, per media coverage afforded Zuckerberg in blanketing those who disagree with the tagline Black Lives Matter, the assumption is being made that Mark is either in the majority viewpoint or that Facebook's staff exists in a vacuum. Both assertions couldn't be further from the truth. Hence why publicly available data, which has been widely distributed online, is critical in establishing the argument that these workers weren't "fringe" activists in any way. Judging by polling...

    Well whoop-dee-doo: a Democrat, Bill Clinton, finally told the truth about Black Lives Matter. Heckled by BLM protesters, Clinton yelled, "You are defending the people who killed the lives you say matter." Amen, Bill. Stats confirm that the real threat to young blacks is other young blacks, murdering each other in epidemic record-breaking numbers in major cities (controlled by Democrats with strict gun laws) across America. And yet BLM and other so-called civil rights advocacy groups ignore black-on-black violence. Make no mistake about it: Clinton slapping BLM with the truth has nothing to do with him giving a rat's derriŤre...
