    Two Utah high school seniors lost a round in a debate when they argued against racism and classism by citing the works of two “racist” pundits, psychologist Jordan Peterson and conservative writer Ben Shapiro. A debate judge deemed the writings of “white supremacists” Peterson and Shapiro as inadmissible in the Jan. 5 verbal contest held at Arizona State University in Tempe.

    Bezos — a self-described “family man” — has been whisking his mistress off to exotic destinations on his $65 million private jet, sending her raunchy messages and erotic selfies — including one steamy picture too explicit to print here — and having secret rendezvous at palatial private estates. During a blockbuster four-month investigation, The ENQUIRER tracked Bezos, who turns 55 on Jan. 12, and secret lover Sanchez across five states and 40,000 miles, tailed them in private jets, swanky limos, helicopter rides, romantic hikes, five-star hotel hideaways, intimate dinner dates and “quality time” in hidden love nests.

    I've been wondering for quite a while about the practical and legal difficulties surrounding the concept of compiling a carefully curated, distributed list of leftist vermin and then officially notifying them via registered mail and other legally recognized methods that they're persona non grata on the grounds of my private property and my own company and on the grounds of a fair number of other participating private property owners, sole proprietorships, and corporations. Obviously, notorious leftist vermin such as Morris Dees, Oprah Winfrey, Nancy Pelosi, Charles Schumer, Louis Farrakhan, Hillary Rodham Clinton, Bernie Sanders, and hundreds of others would be...

    It wouldn't be Christmas without some local-government official banning the display of a Nativity scene on public property. In this latest case, the church displaying the crčche had already received permission and had a 1984 Supreme Court ruling that such displays are legal as long as other non-religious or non-sectarian symbols are allowed. But what if no one else cares to put up an alternate display of competing symbols? According to these bureaucrats, the burden falls on the church ...

    CTH has received multiple requests for a review of predictable consequences as a result of the midterm election. Thankfully, and perhaps unfortunately, we have solid references to base these predictions on – because there’s a solid frame of reference from the 2006 midterm and the subsequent consequences we saw in 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010. If we take the empirical 2006 example as the starting point and overlay the 2018 landscape to modernize the predictive model, what results is a most likely scenario. First, any intellectually honest review must overlay the current political environment. In 2018 the scale of unchecked lawless...

    As I tossed a bunch more political mass mailed flyers into trash today i wondered maybe I should have marked them return to sender and have the pacs and liberal/leftist groups sending them pay return postage? Some thing maybe useful for next elections because I'm being innudated with their large cardstock mailings in my state and I'd guess others of you are as well? As a registered undeclared/Independent voter I used to get mailings looking for donations and I would seal and return the postage paid envelopes empty so they had to pay return postage.

    GENEVA (7 September 2018) – UN human rights experts* have appealed to Iran to halt the imminent executions of Iranian Kurd prisoners Zanyar and Loghman Moradi, amid serious concerns that they did not receive a fair trial and were tortured during pre-trial detention. They also reiterated calls to halt the execution of Mr. Ramin Hossein Panahi. “We urge the Government of Iran to immediately halt their executions and to annul the death sentences against them in compliance with its international obligations,” the experts said in a joint statement, following reports that they will be executed on 8 September.“We are alarmed...

    Buzz Aldrin appeared to criticize Neil Armstrong biopic First Man for leaving out the planting of the American flag on the Moon. The 88-year-old, who was the second man to set foot on the Moon, on Sunday tweeted a picture of the flag planted after their landing in 1969. He captioned the photo: 'Proud to be an American.' Aldrin also re-tweeted a photo of him saluting next to the same picture. It is an apparent dig at Oscar-winning director Damian Chazelle's decision not to include the planting of the flag on the Moon at the end of his critically acclaimed...

    The Supreme Court on Thursday rejected a Minnesota law banning voters from wearing political apparel to the polls, saying it was too draconian in stifling Americans’ First Amendment rights. The 7-2 decision said it may be possible for states to restrict stridently political T-shirts and buttons, but the justices said Minnesota didn’t justify why its law needed to be so broad.

    Californians likely will vote in November on a long-shot referendum to split their giant state into three – a measure that, while standing little chance of success, would represent a political gift to Democrats. Such a California breakup would upset the political balance in the Senate if it actually happened, and hurt the GOP. According to a Fox News analysis of county-level voting data, splitting California as outlined would create two solid blue states and one leaning blue state. That could very well mean four extra Senate seats for Democrats – plus four more electoral votes in presidential elections. So...
