    Washington (CNN)Students at Howard University loudly protested former FBI Director James Comey Friday as he delivered a convocation address. As Comey, making a rare public appearance since leaving the FBI, began his speech welcoming new students at Howard University, protesters could be heard yelling from the back of the room, raising their fists and shouting. Some of the slogans included "No justice, no peace, "We shall not be moved" and "white supremacy is not a debate." Standing before a packed auditorium, Comey stood silently for over 15 minutes as the students yelled, "I love being black" and "Get out James...

    New rule from our friends on the authoritarian left: If you're going to publicly support President Trump, you better be careful where you do it. Only in the comfort of your home, says the Black Entertainment Television website. "In light of recent events," it intoned on Monday, "Donald Trump's 'Make America Great Again' hats have become taboo to wear in public." The BET website was writing about an incident last Saturday in which two white teens from Pennsylvania in town for a field trip went into the Howard University cafeteria for lunch wearing pro-Trump paraphernalia. Both had MAGA hats they...

    For over a month, athletes across the U.S. have been sitting and kneeling during "The Star Spangled Banner" in a nod to footballer Colin Kaepernick's well-documented protest against police brutality. Now, cheerleaders are joining in on the action. The Howard University Cheerleaders knelt while the National Anthem blasted from speakers during the AT&T Nation's Football Classic at RFK Stadium in Washington, D.C. Saturday afternoon, CNN reported. Howard is one of the country's few historically black universities, with notable alums such as New York City's first African-American mayor, David Dinkins, and Congressman Elijah Cummings.

    You might remember him as Balok the creepy child alien in "Star Trek" or the geeky flight controller in "Apollo 13", but this week, actor Clint Howard is far from Hollywood, working as a volunteer phone banker for Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz in Iowa. Howard donated to Cruz's campaign last year and flew to Des Moines to support him before the caucuses. On Wednesday night, he was among hundreds of others at a Cruz rally here to promote Cruz's campaign and oppose abortion."Over the years I've grown more conservative," Howard told CNN after the event. "I've come to realize...

    Dwight Howard is under criminal investigation for child abuse ... law enforcement sources tell TMZ. We've learned the Cobb County PD in Georgia now has an active criminal investigation into allegations he beat his 6-year-old son Braylon with a belt buckle. TMZ Sports broke the story ... the Dept. of Children and Families in Florida (DCF) determined there wasn't enough evidence of child abuse to go forward, but it turns out the incident occurred in Georgia. Howard admits he hit his kid with a belt, but says he didn't know it was wrong because he was hit as a kid.

    The media are poring over each and every detail of the life of U.S. soccer team’s heroic goalkeeper. Here’s one they probably won’t mention: Tim Howard is a Christian. Beating the U.S. soccer team in a 2-1 game, Belgium eliminated the U.S. from the World Cup, on July 1. Despite that, the U.S. team still boasted a win: goalkeeper Tim Howard made 16 goal saves during the match, the most in World Cup history since 1966 (when record-keeping first began). ABC, CBS and NBC noted the champion’s popularity – but failed to mention his faith. During the morning segments after...

    **SNIP** She also had served on a state advisory committee aimed at eliminating the digital divide between the rich and poor. According to the plea agreement, Howard established an annual Tee Off for Technology celebrity golf outing in 2003 to raise money for a scholarship fund in her name. From 2003 to 2007, she solicited and collected about $76,700 but awarded no more than five $2,500 scholarships. Along the way, she claimed more than 50 people had received scholarships, according to the plea. The $28,000 she siphoned from the scholarship fund went to her personal and political use, including for...

I want a government that is going to help me fund my college education. I want a government that won’t define me by my FAFSA or by my family’s income. I’m a dollar sign with a heartbeat in this nation. This society is a mirror image of Capitol Hill. Do you, Senator Rand Paul, have a solution to come up with new American values...

    What was Rand Paul, a white Republican senator from Kentucky, doing at Howard University, a mostly black campus in Washington DC? Asking black Americans to give conservatism a second look. Paul acknowledged that some people thought he was crazy to speak to a largely democratic group, who were probably part of the 93% of blacks who re-elected President Barack Obama in 2012. He joked: "My response is that my trip will be a success if the Hilltop [the campus newspaper] will simply print that a Republican came to Howard, but he came in peace." The rest of his speech wasn't...

    On the first day of Black history month, policy experts analyzed the current economic state of Black Americans during a summit at Howard University. One featured participant said President Obama, “does not deserve a pass anymore” regarding confronting Black issues head on and asked that the President “summon his courage” and “find his voice” on economic inequality in America. **SNIP** There has been discussion on what some refer to as a “cone of silence” over the Obama presidency regarding issues dealing with race and racial disparities in America. The Washington Monthly magazine featured Obama and race on their front cover...

    Australia, correctly in my view, does not have a Bill of Rights, so our legislatures have more say than America’s over many issues of individual rights, and our courts have less control. Also, we have no constitutional right to bear arms.

    Via Breitbart TV. Given Stern’s reach and the otherwise adoring coverage of OWS, this may well be the biggest PR hit the movement’s taken so far. People are buzzing about this Quinnipiac poll out today showing that a heavy majority of New Yorkers agree with “the protesters’ views” — whatever those might be — but the numbers are a fait accompli. In the 2008 election, Brooklyn broke 79/20 for Obama; Manhattan 85/14; and the Bronx 88/11. So long as the protesters babble feelgood platitudes about “economic justice” and take care to ruin the quality of life only for those residents/businesses...

    Life was simpler in the fictional town of Mayberry, N.C., where “The Andy Griffith Show” was set, and images of Sheriff Andy Taylor and his son Opie evoke a more prosperous America. But did the mystique of that setting include a 90 percent tax rate on the wealthy? On MSNBC Wednesday, appearing from the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., director and producer Ron Howard said he would be open to the wealthy paying more taxes.

    I’s not an endorsement that former Utah Gov. John Huntsman likely asked for, but his stances on the various policy dilemmas of our time has won the favor of Howard Dean. On MSNBC’s Tuesday broadcast of “Morning Joe,” the former Democratic National Committee chairman and Vermont governor praised Huntsman, especially as the way stacks up against other GOP contenders. “I don’t mean to be catty, but this is a great line,” Dean said. “This is true. Jacob wrote this was the thinking man’s candidate. There aren’t any thinking people in the Republican Party. I’m serious. Name a few thoughtful policy...

    WHEN the members of the federal parliamentary Liberal Party met to elect a new leader after its defeat on November 27, 2007, the outlook for the party and its cause, nationwide, seemed bleak. The gallows humour started early. Campbell Newman, the Liberal Lord Mayor of Brisbane, was quickly named the most senior Liberal figure in Australia: he actually held elected office. Not since its formation in 1944 had the Liberal Party been so bereft of political power. Labor was in office everywhere at a national, state and territory level. The reasonable expectation was that the newly ensconced Rudd government would...
