    NBA legend Oscar Robertson has one question as he looks out at the recent collision of politics and sports: “Where are the white players?” Robertson, “The Big O,” was honored with the league’s lifetime achievement award at the NBA Awards banquet Monday night in California. During his remarks on stage, he spoke about the need to “be persistent, or as I’ve been called, stubborn. Stubborn about what you believe in.”

    A Richmond, Virginia, elementary school will switch its name from that of a Confederate general to that of the nation's first black President. On Monday, the Richmond school board voted to rename J.E.B. Stuart Elementary as Barack Obama Elementary School. Members of the school's community submitted ideas for a new name and students at the Richmond school, which is 95% African-American, voted among seven choices. The top three finalists were: Barack Obama, Northside and Wishtree. Last year, a school board in Mississippi dropped the name Jefferson Davis, for the president of the Confederacy, in favor of naming an elementary school...

    Go back to France, Mr. Macron. Take your decidedly UN-AMERICAN visions back home with you. Try to clean up the mess you have in France before you take another shot at the America that is still standing that will not go down without a fight I was so thoroughly disgusted with oligarch Macron’s performance here in America. With his Obama/Trudeau-esque ‘charm’ and lighthearted con-man act, he attempted to work our president like a jukebox. And our own Donald, in his response to that, was nothing but a class act in opening our hospitality and home up - through his heart...

    Many Americans miss having President Barack Obama in the White House, but he doesn’t seem to be one of them. It “is obvious to most people who are watching that he is relieved to no longer be bearing the burden of the presidency,” Josh Earnest, who worked with Obama since his 2008 presidential campaign and served as his press secretary, told The Hill in a report published Monday. “I think there's no doubt that he is more relaxed and more at ease and more unburdened than he's been in a decade, and it shows,” Earnest said. The 44th president has...

    When are the leaders of unsuspecting nations going to realize that if Obama would take down his own country, with no apology or shame that he will try the same thing on theirs? Like the typical Marxist that he truly is under the skin, former President Barack Obama is already diving in to fill the vacuum left behind by Facebook and other social media. Even with all of the advantages stacked on their side, latter day social media is failing at a rate that the masses are noticing. The first thing that Communists, Socialists and Marxists do when companies and...

    The conversation has become predictable. A friendly acquaintance — a neighbor, a fellow parent, our real estate agent — asks about my work. I say I’ve been writing a book about the pope, and the acquaintance smiles and nods and says “Isn’t he so wonderful?” or, “That must be an inspiring thing,” or, “I have a friend who would love to read it.” And then eventually I find myself saying, uncomfortably, “Well, they should know that it’s not entirely favorable.”

    This week, Congressional Democrats released a detailed tax hike plan that they promised to implement if given majority control of the House and Senate after the 2018 midterm elections. So much for the crocodile tears about the deficit--Democrats want to raise taxes not to reduce the debt, but rather to spend that tax hike money on boondoggle projects. As you might expect, hold onto your wallets. Here are the details: Increase the top marginal income tax rate from 37 percent to 39.6 percent. This nearly 3 percentage point increase in the top personal rate is not only a hike in...

    Dallas News ^ | February 15, 2018 | by Rick Brettell, Art Critic
    The U.S. was rather late in establishing a National Portrait Gallery - and in creating the conditions for commissioning official portraits of presidents and first ladies. There is little doubt that the Obamas were the most stylish and sophisticated first couple since the Kennedys and, as powerful individuals in their respective roles, the Obamas elected to each choose a different painter, thus breaking the tradition of commissioning official portraits from one - always white and always male - artist. But nothing is typical about the Obamas. They were the first African-American couple in the White House, and nothing is typical...

    Mallory Millett: How bizarre it is to have to argue the obvious; to have to prove over and over again what is self-evident so let me be as offensive as I possibly can: Men are men and women are women. They are essentially different and designed for a natural division of labor. Period. I get a kick out of the feminists’ love affair with the word “empowerment.” They have clever formulas for ensnaring hapless souls into their deceits. One of their slicker moves is to create a vocabulary designed to get around long-held beliefs, mores, taboos or fears. “Pro-choice” is...

    A conversation with the feminist icon’s sister. Feminist icon Kate Millett passed away recently in Paris at the age of 82. Her 1970 book Sexual Politics, called "the Bible of Women's Liberation" by the New York Times, had a seismic effect on feminist thought and launched Millett as what the Times called "a defining architect of second-wave feminism." In a cover story that same year, TIME magazine crowned her "the Mao Tse-tung of Women's Liberation." Fellow feminist Andrea Dworkin said that Millett woke up a sleeping world. Kate's sister Mallory, a CFO for several corporations, resides in New York City...

    The Catholic Herald (UK) ^ | 2/6/18 | Carol Glatz
    The Church offers people 'the soothing remedy of prayer, almsgiving and fasting' during Lent, the Pope said Catholics should use the season of Lent to look for signs and symptoms of being under the spell of false prophets and of living with cold, selfish and hateful hearts, Pope Francis said. Together with “the often bitter medicine of the truth,” the Church – as mother and teacher – offers people “the soothing remedy of prayer, almsgiving and fasting,” the Pope said in his message for Lent, which begins on February 14 for Latin-rite Catholics. The Pope also invited all non-Catholics who...

    A self-described Marxist professor at San Diego State University, who is a leader within the international communist movement, has told his students that “grading is a quintessentially bourgeois practice,” and is blaming the capitalist system for unfairly grading students on their individual academic ability. This message, from professor Emanuele Saccarelli, is in a syllabus for a class on Marxism which he has used for the past five years.

    In his new message for the World Day of Peace, Pope Francis has denounced those who question the wisdom of mass migration, accusing them of demagoguery and promoting xenophobia. Those who decry “the risks posed to national security or the high cost of welcoming new arrivals,” are guilty of “demeaning the human dignity due to all as sons and daughters of God,” Francis said in the New Year’s message. To resort to such “rhetoric,” the Pope continued, people “are sowing violence, racial discrimination and xenophobia, which are matters of great concern for all those concerned for the safety of every...

    Barack Obama’s legacy may be under attack by President Trump — but he still has bragging rights as the most admired man in the world, according to a new Gallup poll. The poll found 17 percent of people questioned named Obama the man they admired most, a drop from 22 percent last year. Trump took second place with 14 percent, while Hillary Clinton was named the most admired woman for the 16th year in a row, with 9 percent of mentions, Gallup found. Obama has now been named the most admired man 10 times in a row, trailing only Dwight...

    Science editor for the site’s U.K. operation quickly disables her Twitter account after coming under fire A science editor at BuzzFeed UK raised a few eyebrows last week after some curious remarks about Communism. “All I want for Christmas is full Communism now,” editor Kelly Oakes tweeted — before locking down her account after it was picked by right-wing media and the always ferocious James Woods. The screenshots tell the story. A spokesperson for BuzzFeed declined to comment on the matter. Oakes, who does not report to the website’s U.S.-based science desk, did not immediately respond to a request for...

    After making its way through local approvals, the Obama Presidential Center (OPC), proposed for Jackson Park on Chicago’s South Side, will now face its first round of federal review. Set to take up over 20 acres of the Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux-designed park, the future of the OPC is now in doubt after becoming entwined with the merger of the nearby Jackson and South Shore golf courses. Because the two projects would monumentally alter usage patterns in the historic park, an environmental review process has been triggered for each proposal under both the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA)...
