    Hundreds of college professors, referring to themselves as “American historians,” have signed a letter begging the U.S. House of Representatives to impeach President Donald Trump, claiming that the president has “violated his oath” and citing his “brazen contempt” for the government. The signees even suggest that Alexander Hamilton himself would disagree with the president’s “private life” as a reason for impeachment. “We are American historians devoted to studying our nation’s past who have concluded that Donald J. Trump has violated his oath,” proclaim nearly 600 professors in a letter to Congress attempting to justify the impeachment of the sitting President...

    All the Democratic candidates not named Joe are facing a dilemma: How do they foster the impression that they've got just as good a shot at winning the nomination and beating Donald Trump? After months of coverage about what a weak candidate Biden would be, he's totally upended the race, at least based on the polls that are crack cocaine for political reporters.

    The Truth About Guns ^ | 03/15/19 | Dan Zimmerman
    From newstalkzb.co.nz: The crowd in attendance at a vigil at Auckland’s Aotea Square cheered loudly when Attorney-General David Parker said the Government would ban semi-automatic rifles. He warned of a global rise of extremism. “There is a dimming of enlightenment in many parts of the world,” he said. “How can it be right for this atrocity to be filmed by the murderer using a go-pro and live-streamed across the world by social media companies? “How can that be right? Who should be held accountable for that?” The answer is obvious: New Zealand’s law-abiding gun owners. They’re the ones who will...

    It is said that "clothes maketh the man." It is therefore a paradox that researchers have not shown more interest in the dress of the San hunter-gatherers, historically among the most studied groups of people in the world. Vibeke Maria Viestad, a senior lecturer at the Department of Archaeology, Conservation and History at the University of Oslo, believes this is so because of a prevailing myth about "the nearly naked bushman.""The San people dressed differently from us, often with a bare upper body, and were therefore perceived as naked when first met by Europeans. This view was commonplace in travel...

    The post went up quietly on Facebook’s internal message board last week. Titled “We Have a Problem With Political Diversity,” it quickly took off inside the social network. “We are a political monoculture that’s intolerant of different views,” Brian Amerige, a senior Facebook engineer, wrote in the post, which was obtained by The New York Times. “We claim to welcome all perspectives, but are quick to attack — often in mobs — anyone who presents a view that appears to be in opposition to left-leaning ideology.” Since the post went up, more than 100 Facebook employees have joined Mr. Amerige...

  • The media's Russia probe meltdown: 3 screw-ups in one week

    The media is having a rough week when it comes to reporting on the federal government's multiple ongoing Russia investigations. Three stories in the past seven days have crumbled under greater scrutiny. Why it matters: In today's hyperpolarized world, "fake news" has become a refrain to describe stories that observers on both sides of the spectrum decide that they don't like. These reporting issues by esteemed media organizations give credence to that ignorance, which further damages the value of insightful, impactful reporting — especially when it comes to one of the biggest, most polarizing stories of our political age: the...

    Another day, another speech by a member of the Trump family — and another round of plagiarism charges coursing through social media. The Daily Show's Twitter account seemed to pounce first when it pointed out lines from Donald Trump Jr.'s speech that seemed to be identical to words first used in a May article by F.H. Buckley in The American Conservative called "Trump vs. the New Class."

    The Left is being forced to acknowledge that the Orlando terrorist attack is an existential threat to its agenda, amid an election already focused on America’s inability to control world affairs and its own borders. The Left’s agenda to eradicate the nation state through open borders and disarmament is in real trouble after a known radicalized Islamist, with a connection to a suicide bomber, whose father broadcast a radio show supporting the Taliban, who was given security clearances and weapons licenses to work on DHS contracts, claimed allegiance to ISIS while methodically slaughtering 50 Americans in Orlando.

    Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick is calling for the resignation of Dr. Kent Paredes Scribner, Superintendent of the Fort Worth Independent School District. Patrick says Scribner placed his own personal agenda ahead of students by adopting transgender student guidelines. In a statement released on Monday afternoon, Patrick said: “After less than a year as superintendent, Dr. Scribner has lost his focus and thereby his ability to lead the Fort Worth ISD. He has placed his own personal political agenda ahead of the more than 86,000 students attending 146 schools in the district by unilaterally adopting ‘Transgender Student Guidelines.’ Without any...

    The media spinners are quickly forming a template for the latest act of terrorism to hit out shores - the killing of 14 people at a community center in San Bernadino, CA. Stylish Jihadi Ken and Barbie, the Bonnie and Clyde role models for a new century, left this world in a hail of bullets after performing workplace violence against useless white bureaucrats having a "holiday party" (likely with Christian overtones where something offensive like ham or bacon bits may have been served in the casserole). Ken and Barbie could take no more so they went home and dressed in...

    The late evening of Aug. 9, 2014, I couldn’t sleep. I was due to substitute-anchor MSNBC’s “UP with Steve Kornacki” and should have been asleep. But after looking at my Twitter feed and reading the rage under #Ferguson, I felt compelled to type a reaction to the killing of Michael Brown by police officer Darren Wilson. Tying the shooting to the inane whine of certain politicians about a “war on whites,” I decried the next morning the death of yet another unarmed black man at the hands of a white police officer. In those early hours and early days, there...

    If you had predicted six years ago that America’s first half-black, half-white president would actually make race relations in the U.S. worse, they would have laughed you out of the room. If you had said that, in the face of a sudden racial crisis, the president — portrayed as black throughout the campaign — would be impotent, neutered, unable to speak powerfully about the situation, they would have scoffed incredulously. Who are “they”? Everyone. If you had expressed those fears out loud in the run-up to his historic 2008 election, everyone within earshot would have mocked you mercilessly. More, they...

    The statement that paedophilia is “natural and normal” was made not three decades ago but last July. It was made not in private but as one of the central claims of an academic presentation delivered, at the invitation of the organisers, to many of the key experts in the field at a conference held by the University of Cambridge. Other presentations included “Liberating the paedophile: a discursive analysis,” and “Danger and difference: the stakes of hebephilia.”

    Yaakov Berg, CEO of Psagot Winery, revealed to Arutz Sheva that the international boycotts of Israel products began precisely in Tel Aviv. There, the discrimination by Israelis against domestic produce from over the 1949 Armistice line opened the international floodgates. “Today everyone is attacking the countries that boycott us, but I want to say that the true boycott began from among us,” emphasizes Berg. […] Berg noted that he is convinced the Tel Aviv boycotters will in the end be boycotted as well, a prediction borne out by reports that US Secretary of State John Kerry is manipulating the EU...

    Regardless of the culture a child lives in, corporal punishment may do lasting psychological harm, German researchers say. In a new study conducted in Tanzania, where physical punishment is considered normal, primary school students who were beaten by teachers or family members in the name of discipline tended to show more behavior problems, not fewer, the researchers found. "Parents aim to educate children through corporal punishment, but instead of learning good social behaviors, the beatings often have the opposite effect," said Tobias Hecker, a psychologist at the University of Konstanz, who led the study. "Some people still believe, despite an...

    Move would allow Obama administration to institute policies that would better integrate communities The Department of Housing and Urban Development has proposed a new plan to change U.S. neighborhoods it says are racially imbalanced or are too tilted toward rich or poor, arguing the country's housing policies have not been effective at creating the kind of integrated communities the agency had hoped for. The proposed federal rule, called "Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing," is currently under a 60-day public comment period. Though details of how the policy would specifically work are unclear, the rule says HUD would provide states, local governments...

Federal District Judge Patrick J. Duggan of the Eastern District of Michigan issued his opinion yesterday. The Court declared the teacher’s actions in punishing Daniel Glowacki for expressing his beliefs against homosexuality violated “Daniel’s First Amendment rights.” In its findings of fact—the Court described how the teacher initiated a discussion about homosexuality.

What's more, it won't be that long until "[t]he Bill Clinton syndrome is going to be upon us, where it's time to move on, we've covered it [the media will say] and they're going to turn the fire right on Republicans as being obstructionists.
