    I have been accused of being a concern troll. But even I am not buying this crap. If Hitlery were that close in Texas, she would be up 20 points in Florida. And up 15 in Colorado.

    CRYSTAL LAKE – A Prairie Ridge High School teacher has been put on paid administrative leave after showing a politically charged video and endorsing Hillary Clinton in his class. William Walker has been working with the district since 1993 and has been at Prairie Ridge since it opened in 1997. He was outside the school Monday with tape over his mouth and a sign that read “Enjoy the Silence” in protest of his recent removal from the classroom. He said that the administration’s actions resulted from his showing of a 23-minute YouTube video, “Sam Harris Dismantles Donald Trump,” in class....

    Vanity Fair magazine just ended its third annual “New Establishment Summit” in San Francisco, a three-day conclave bringing together “titans of technology, politics, business, media and the arts for inspiring conversations on the issues and innovations shaping the future.” More accurately, what the magazine’s predominantly liberal readership would deem “inspiring.” At least one of those conversations, between New York magazine writer Frank Rich and purported humorist/Vanity Fair contributing editor Fran Lebowitz, hardly qualifies. Their discussion turned inevitably to the presidential campaign and Lebowitz offered this on how she “knew Trump wouldn’t win” long before the pesky election that actually decides...

    A global warming research center at the London School of Economics got millions of dollars from UK taxpayers by taking credit for research it didn’t perform, an investigation by The Daily Mail revealed. The UK government gave $11 million dollars to the Centre for Climate Change Economics and Policy (CCCEP) in exchange for research that the organization reportedly never actually did. Many papers CCCEP claimed to have published to get government money weren’t about global warming, were written before the organization was even founded, or were written by researchers unaffiliated with CCCEP. The government never checked CCCEP’s supposed publication lists,...

    In Part 1 of our Super PAC Explainer series, explored what Coordinated Communication is. To sum it up, if there is coordination in private prior to the release of a paid Super PAC advertisement, it’s considered an illegal Coordinated Communication. It’s very important to understand what Coordinated Communication is, but the reality is that most, if not all, of the illegal Super PAC coordination going on today is in the form in-kind contributions to political campaigns. This article will cover what that means. What’s an in-kind contribution? Political Candidates are required to report anything of value they receive. If you...

    It looks like a burger, smells like a burger and even bleeds like one. So, where’s the beef? There’s no animal protein in the Impossible Burger, which made its debut on the San Francisco dining scene Thursday. The idea is to mimic meat so closely that you might not realize it isn’t a traditional hamburger patty. The Impossible Burger is available at two S.F. restaurants — Cockscomb and Jardiniere. Some local vegetarians went to both on Thursday. Luke Ianni hasn’t eaten meat for twenty years, so the taste threw him. “It was so good that I was kinda grossed out,...
