    In the last few weeks, there has been a spate of columns by writers on the left condemning the left-wing college students who riot, take over university buildings and shout down speakers with whom they differ... Here's the problem: It is the left that transformed universities into the moral and intellectual wastelands most are now...

    If your answer is, “you can’t be serious,” you’re not fully in tune with the contemporary landscape. On the other hand, your common sense quotient is high. The NFL scouting combine is basically an audition by more than 300 of the best collegiate football players who are eligible for the NFL draft. They come to Indianapolis each year to undergo on-field workouts, medical testing, interviews, and psychological testing.

    MSNBC's Brian Williams may not be the best person to discuss another man's lying. On his show "The 11th Hour," Williams hosted a segment that discussed President Donald Trump's alleged lying. [Snip] "This is what the Trump Administration is counting on. Why does he lie? Because he can. Because anyone who corrects him, he'll say that's the opposition, that's partisan," [Guest Charlie] Sykes said.

    In a tizzy after Betsy DeVos was confirmed as President Trump’s Sec. of Education, liberals on Twitter started considering the merits of homeschooling for the first time. The irony of invoking the freedom to choose where their kids go to school as a way to protest a pro-school choice Sec. of Education seemed lost on them. {..snip..}

    Foreign Policy ^ | JANUARY 26, 2017 | BY DAVID ROTHKOPF
    America’s foreign policy has changed more in the week since Donald Trump took office than it has at any time since the end of World War II. Given the changes that occurred in 1991 with the end of the Cold War and after the attacks on 9/11, that is saying something. But the changes ushered in by Trump — often without benefit of consultation with his cabinet departments, experts of any sort, or the legislative branch of government — cut to the core philosophies that have guided America in the modern era, as well as to the specifics of relations...

    FULL TITLE: Activist who was walking across America barefoot to raise awareness of climate change is hit and killed by SUV A man who was hiking across America barefoot on the side of highways to 'save the earth' was struck by a Buick SUV and died Saturday.

His journey aimed to raise awareness and funds for the FANG Collective, a Rhode Island organization that supports nonviolent resistance to the natural gas industry. Florida Highway Patrol confirmed Baumer was hit on the side of Highway 90 in Walton County. He was pronounced...

    Black employees of CNN are suing the company and its affiliates for racial discrimination. The class action was filed in Atlanta, Georgia, on Wednesday on behalf of two workers, Celeslie Henley and Ernest Colbert Jr, but alleges widespread discrimination throughout the organizations. 'Dramatic' differences in pay, harsher evaluations for black males and fewer available promotions are among evidence of the prejudice, the lawsuit alleges. CNN declined to comment on the case when comment on the case when contacted. TBS and Time Warner did not respond to requests. . .

    There was misery for Hillary Clinton's band of Hollywood megafans as Donald Trump emerged victorious as American President. Lady Gaga staged a protest against Trump outside Trump Tower, clinging to a sanitation truck with a sign 'Love Trumps Hate'. She was then pictured looking emotional in a luxury black Rolls-Royce Phantom being driven away clasping her hands together. At midnight, she had taken to Twitter and wrote: 'Say a prayer America.' Other famous Clinton supporters took to social media to express their dismay. Eva Longoria captioned an unhappy selfie on Snapchat 'What is happening?????!!!!!'.

    Hillary Clinton sits on her Throne of Power in the Fortress of Glass, glancing at the ceiling and sharpening her hammer. She has been starting to hope. Earlier today she sent out one or two emails to old friends in Washington intimating they should “get drinks when I’m back.” She has started to say “when” more than “if.” She keeps seeing the number “45” everywhere she looks — records, temperatures — and when she does, she smiles a little to herself, as if it’s an omen. At the back of her closet there is a checklist of Things To Accomplish...

    It took only seconds before Kibet made the connection: Someone had broken in and rifled through the team’s belongings. In the hallway, he saw the stairwell door closing at the end of the corridor. Kibet did what comes naturally: He ran. With his pack on his back and dress shoes on his feet, he flew down five flights until he reached the bottom floor of the Courtyard Marriott, where he found a man with his teammates’ bags. “I got a knife,” the man told Kibet, and then he ran. Kibet briefly pondered what to do, then gave chase, keeping his...

    Michelle Obama told supporters in Philadelphia on Wednesday that candidates don’t change once they become president and that America “needs an adult in the White House.” […] “The presidency doesn’t change who you are; it reveals who you are,” she told the cheering crowd. […] She said the country needs a leader who is steady and measured because when making war-or-peace decisions, “the president can’t just pop off or lash out irrationally. No, we need an adult in the White House, I guarantee you.” …

    ST. CLOUD, Minn. – Shane Williams was standing in line at Orange Julius with his 6-year old daughter when the screaming started last week. Instinctively, Shane pulled his daughter close and began searching for the cause of the commotion. Williams saw a woman running toward him; blood ran through her fingers where she clutched her abdomen. Behind her, a man dressed in a security guard uniform appeared to be wrestling with someone.

    As violence escalated in Charlotte, N.C. Wednesday night, reporters became part of the story as protesters turned on the media. CNN anchor Don Lemon stopped the broadcast feed as a CNN camera crew was confronted by rioters who attempted to block the camera yelling “F**king liars!” “As happens in these particular situations, the crowd gets out of control and then they try to assault or at least intimidate our camera people and our news people,” Lemon said. Fox News reporter Steve Harrigan got into a verbal confrontation with a woman he was interviewing when she accused him of wanting video...

    Two professors, one of them an American citizen, were reportedly abducted at gun point near the American University of Afghanistan in Kabul this weekend, ABC News reported. The other man was Australian, according to ABC. Men wearing National Security forces uniforms reportedly kidnapped the men at about 8:30 p.m. Kabul time, according to the Voice of America. The Kabul police have begun an investigation into the incident. A U.S. State Department official said the department is "aware of reports of a U.S. citizen kidnapped in Kabul."

    Eight men were rescued Tuesday from the fire lines on the south side of the Soberanes fire burning near Big Sur. Cal Fire said the men went hiking five days ago and became lost with little water or food. Once the fire flared up over the weekend, the men said they were stranded and didn't know which direction would lead them to safety. Bulldozing crews spotted the men Tuesday, and Cal Fire used air support to locate them. "Air attack did locate them initially," said Cal Fire's Kevin Bohall. "Once we found that, we used a global positioning unit, got...

    President Obama said in an interview with CBS airing Sunday that honesty was “absolutely necessary” for a president in order to build trust with the American people. Obama has endorsed his former secretary of state, Hillary Clinton, to succeed him in the White House. In the wake of her private email scandal and the FBI’s revelation that she was “extremely careless” with classified material, Clinton’s honesty numbers with the public are dismal. The FBI also refuted Clinton’s constant claim that she never sent or received classified material on her server, which she has dismissed as a mere “mistake.” “FDR and...

    The long-awaited House committee report on the 2012 Benghazi attacks revealed a striking irony: In the end, the forces that came to evacuate State Department and CIA officers that night were not fellow Americans, but a secret unit of former military officers from the Qaddafi regime that Washington – and then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton – had helped overthrow. Their intervention, according to the report, likely saved “over two dozen lives.” “In other words, some of the very individuals the United States had helped remove from power during the Libyan revolution were the only Libyans that came to the assistance...

    Apple is in a court battle in China that isn’t going so well. Baili, a Chinese device maker, has sued Apple for allegedly copying its smartphone design in the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. A Chinese court recently granted Baili an injunction that would have forced Apple to remove the iPhone 6 line from store shelves. However, Apple quickly appealed the ruling to a higher court, which will allow it to continue selling the iPhone 6 line until that court makes its own ruling on the case.Gadget site Engadget previously reported on the lawsuit.The smartphone in question is Baili’s...
