    The newest Miss USA, District of Columbia’s Kara McCullough, found herself at the center of controversy during Sunday night’s pageant when she chose to answer questions with words that didn’t toe the accepted politically correct line. McCullough, 25, answered a question about affordable health care by saying health care was a privilege and not a right. She said the country’s focus should be on getting more people jobs so they can afford health insurance. Liberals ran to Twitter to disagree — and complaints ranged from calling for the removal of the contestant to downright misogyny. McCullough also answered a question...

    Well then, you must like losing your job to someone in Mexico who will make $3/hour. Union leaders at an air conditioner factory in Indianapolis threatened with losing 1,400 jobs to Mexico said on Tuesday the plants owner expects to pay Mexican workers $3 an hour compared to an average of more than $20 an hour for the U.S. workers. "We have not given up the fight yet," said Chuck Jones, president of the United Steelworkers union local that represents workers at the Carrier Corp plant. "But Carrier has pretty well indicated that the wage differential is too great and...

    It’s a topsy-turvy world when law-breakers — those who illegally enter and stay in the United States — are sacred cows, while those who criticize the law-breakers are ostracized and demonized. On June 16, 2015, when Donald Trump announced that he’s entering the crowded race to become the 2016 Republican presidential nominee, he made some remarks about illegal immigration which brought the wrath of the PC Left on his head. Trump said: “When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re sending people that have lots of problems. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. I will...

She appeared taken aback by the question but still tried to reply saying: “What I would do to improve race relations in the U.S. is get...

Good, he’s hit a nerve. At his campaign kickoff announcement at Trump Towers, Trump said, “When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you (gesturing to audience member), they’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.”...

    Panama announced Saturday it is boycotting the Miss Universe pageant — the latest Latin American nation to drop out in protest to Donald Trump's incendiary remarks about Mexican migrants. The Miss Panama Organization and the Telemetro TV station said they wouldn't be a part of the Miss Universe contest, or broadcast it, "in a message of solidarity for our Mexican brothers and sisters." The contest is partially owned by Trump. Trump, a 2016 presidential candidate, has faced searing criticism and lost numerous business deals since his comments about Mexicans during his campaign announcement earlier this month.
