  • I’m ‘Deplorable.’ Are You?

    If Trump is elected, for the first time since the 1990s, I will, again, call myself a Republican. I stopped calling myself a Republican back then because they stopped listening to people like me. I have always been conservative. Trump has empowered the silent majority for the first time since President Reagan. This ‘majority’ consists of Christians, hard-working middle-class Americans and people who want more opportunity for their family. They have been silenced by the Left and made to believe that their jobs, way of life and financial security would be put at risk if they fight for their beliefs....

    David Shaw knows the other side of Richard Sherman Posted by Darin Gantt on January 21, 2014, 8:40 AM EST Richard Sherman AP Stanford coach David Shaw has seen both sides of Richard Sherman. And when something has two sides, there has to be an edge that separates them. That edge, Shaw said, it what makes the Seahawks cornerback so special on the field. “Bill Walsh said you want guys with high character who are great players and great people,” Shaw said, via Jon Wilner of the San Jose Mercury News. “But every once in a while, you have to...

    Michael Crabtree celebrated his 22nd birthday Monday. As an unwanted gift, multiple reports surfaced that the 49ers are poised to drop their offer to the No. 10 overall pick out of Texas Tech. Citing team sources, Michael Silver of Yahoo! Sports wrote that Crabtree's continued absence makes him less valuable to the 49ers on a prorated basis and added, "Translation: The team just reduced its offer and will continue to do so with each passing week." A day earlier, Jay Glazer of Fox Sports reported that the 49ers sent a letter to Crabtree "modifying" their offer. Responding to the Fox...

    Why Hasn't This Received More Attention?A top official at the Department of Homeland Security is investigated and now placed on leave after questions arise regarding her PhD, which appears to have come from a "diploma mill" rather than a legitimate university. Yet, outside of a few niche publications, Washington Technology, Government Computer News, and Federal Computer Week, that cover the business of selling technology products and services to the government, the story has received scant attention. UPDATE: The Washington Post's Al Kamen did cover the story on June 4, with an item in a round-up of news. Interesting tidbits: Laura...

Dizard III Post Newsweek Tech Media A high-ranking career official in the Homeland Security Department apparently obtained her doctorate from a Wyoming diploma mill. Laura L.

    A senate committee chairwoman today turned up the heat on the Homeland Security Department’s investigation of a senior government career official’s claim of a Ph.D. from a Wyoming university that, according to its literature, requires no attendance and scant course work. Hamilton University, the source of the official’s doctorate, grants bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degrees based on life and work experience. "I am very concerned by allegations that a senior Department of Homeland Security official may have misrepresented her academic credentials," said Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, chairman of the Governmental Affairs Committee, which oversees Homeland Security. “I have written today...
