    Does the University of Missouri have a death wish? In the wake of capitulating to race grievance demonstrators, Mizzou is already experiencing a decline in applications so severe that it is closing four dorms and a drop in donations that is causing a financial crisis. Although the faculty no longer includes Melissa “I need some muscle” Click, apparently race-obsessed leftists still occupy positions of power. The university’s Faculty Council Committee on Race Relations is digging an even deeper hole for the school. Carly Hoilman of TheBlaze reports: The University of Missouri’s Faculty Council Committee on Race Relations released a video...

    Submitted by Mike "Mish" Shedlock of MishTalk “Nightmare” Mistake: Visa Free Travel For 80 Million Turks Coming Up Of all the inane, self-serving, deals German Chancellor Angela Merkel made with Turkey, visa-free travel for 80 million Islamic Turks tops the list. “This is all a nightmare,” said one diplomat charged with making the deal work. Nightmares aside, Brussels Prepares Legal Groundwork on Visa-Free Travel for Turks. Brussels will this week propose visa-free travel to Europe for 80m Turks but says Ankara still needs to meet several politically explosive reform conditions within weeks, including overhauling its terrorism laws and party funding...

    To the many gullible souls out there who truly think that Barack Obama is "legacy building" in his all-out assault on America, I implore you to bow out of the conversation because you are not seeing clearly. The term legacy carries positive connotations of something bequeath that is to the receiver's benefit. Everything that Barack Obama does is calculated to destroy America, which he despises. This man no more cares about legacy than he fears being properly prosecuted by the white political leaders whose responsibility it is to remove him from office. I focus on white leaders, because whites are...

    Only hours after suckering Indiana Governor Mike Pence into endorsing him, Ted Cruz has given up on Indiana as a result of surging polls for Donald Trump and crashing Cruz polls as a result of the double-cross bargain he had with John Kasich. According to the Associated Press: “Ted Cruz has pulled his full campaign apparatus out of Indiana. Ted Cruz’s campaign manager is telling media officials that they are now going to focus all of their campaign efforts in the state of California.” The news comes less than 24 hours after the latest polling showed Cruz 22 points behind...

We don’t need it anymore, he claimed,. It does us far more bad than good. Hacker is a hit now. His anti-math book, “The Math Myth: And Other STEM Delusions” is holding its own against “Love and Math,” despite Frenkel’s book being translated into more than a dozen languages and Frenkel’s indefatigable popularization of the power, passion,...

Witness the subpoena from Claude Walker, attorney general of the U.S. Virgin Islands, demanding that the Competitive Enterprise Institute cough up a decade of emails and policy work, as well as a list of private donors. Mr. Walker is frustrated that the free-market think tank won’t join the modern church of climatology, so he has joined the rapidly expanding club of Democratic politicians and prosecutors harassing dissenters. New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman started the assault last autumn with a subpoena barrage on Exxon Mobil. His demand...

The first cliché to be cited is the old one about federalism constituting the laboratory of democracy. Maybe it is trite, but I really wish my state, California, would pay attention to what Delaware and Kansas...

    Given that “redneck” and “hillbilly” remain the last acceptable stereotypes among polite society, it isn’t surprising that the stereotypical urban home of poor, recently rural whites remains an object of scorn. The mere mention of a trailer park conjures images of criminals in wifebeaters, moldy mattresses thrown awry, and Confederate flags. As with most social phenomena, there is a much more interesting reality behind this crass cliché. Trailer parks remain one of the last forms of housing in US cities provided by the market explicitly for low-income residents. Better still, they offer a working example of traditional urban design elements...

The Force Left has successfully seized control of their movement, and their fundamental transformation is manifesting in current events daily as we watch their struggle for ever more power. The left as a whole has long been hostile to the Second Amendment, but has been divided of the regulatory...

"He had disturbing views toward race," said Assemblyman Luis Alejo (D-Watsonville), according to the Associated Press.

"After reviewing the footage, we believe the cat was dead when it was brought to the nest," said Rachel Handel, spokeswoman for the Audubon Society of Western Pennsylvania.

    You probably know the Visigoths as the Germanic tribes who invaded the Roman Empire. You're wrong. The Visigoths did not "invade" the Roman Empire. They were legal immigrants, who simply never fully assimilated into Roman law. The Visigoths lived in Dacia, the region beyond the Northern frontier of the Roman Empire, north of Greece and what is now Bulgaria. Invasions from Huns led Goth leader Fritigern to appeal to Roman Emperor Valens to immigrate to Rome. Valens perceived of them as potentially productive workers and even soldiers. The Visigoths soon became impoverished, and began selling their women for food and...

The 51-year-old Smith, a self-described libertarian, and his business partner, Dr. Steve Lantier, founded the Surgery Center 15 years ago, after they became disillusioned with the way patients were treated at St. Anthony Hospital in Oklahoma City, where the two men worked as anesthesiologists. In 1997, Smith and Lantier bought the shell of a former surgical center with...

The new version stars the voices of James McAvoy and Nicholas Hoult as Hazel and Fiver, Sir Ben Kingsley as General Woundwort and Star...

"American Idol" was the company's biggest breadwinner. And now that the show has ended at Fox, the company is unable to find a similar source of revenue. The company has been seeing losses from a decline in "American Idol" ratings for several years now, however. In 2014,...

    SANTA ANA – A woman whose badly burned body was found abandoned in an Irvine parking lot nearly seven years ago has never been identified – but the trial for a Santa Ana man accused of strangling her and setting her aflame began Wednesday. Zenaido Baldivia-Guzman, 30, is one of two brothers accused of murdering the woman after kidnapping her from the streets of Santa Ana on Sept. 4, 2009, and leaving her body to be discovered the next morning in an industrial park near Alton Parkway. With no identification of the body and no witnesses, Irvine investigators were initially...

    The NCAA has created an anti-discrimination process for championship bids, including cities that want to host the Final Four, the association announced Wednesday. The NCAA Board of Governors adopted a new requirement for sites bidding on championship events to demonstrate “how they will provide an environment that is safe, healthy and free of discrimination, plus safeguards the dignity of everyone involved in the event,” according to an NCAA news release. The requirement comes as legislatures in many states have passed religious freedom laws that allow residents to refuse to provide certain services based on people's sexual orientation or gender identity.

    A curious poll out of Harvard was published on Monday showing that 51% of people between 18 and 29 do not support capitalism. But the curious aspect of this poll is that only 33% of respondents supported socialism. The dichotomy suggests that either most young people haven't a clue about the differernce between capitalism and socialism or, as the researchers believe, the opposition to capitalism arises out of anger at the status quo. Washington Post: The Harvard University survey, which polled young adults between ages 18 and 29, found that 51 percent of respondents do not support capitalism. Just 42...

    The "golden age" of stock market returns is over.That's the summary of a big piece of research from the McKinsey Global Institute (MGI), which estimated returns over the next 20 years in US and Western European markets under two scenarios. The first assumes that today's slow-growth environment remains, while the second models faster growth as technology improves.It concluded that in neither case would returns match those of the past 30 years. For US and European stocks, the difference between past and future annual returns could range from 1.5 percentage points to 4 percentage points. The gap for fixed-income could be...

    Since both Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sander are quite keen to talk about climate change and carbon taxes, let’s take a brief break from the campaign trail and check in on how Mother Gaia is doing these days. We’ve recorded what some climate scientists claim is a string of record warmest months over the past year and if I were judging by the almost snow-free, mild winter we just enjoyed in upstate New York and the rest of the northeast (watch out for the bears) I’d have to agree. So I assume this means we’re all doomed. But oddly...

    Donald Trump swept through all five Northeastern and mid-Atlantic voting states on Tuesday, in a show of dominance unprecedented in his campaign for president. The Manhattan billionaire and GOP frontrunner won every single county in play — 107 total among Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Delaware, Maryland, and Connecticut. As a result, he won each of the 34 congressional districts in play. The East-Coast romp led to Trump pick up at least 110 delegates — more than 93% of the total in play. That total shattered even the rosiest projections of a successful night for Trump. MSNBC's Steve Kornacki projected that Trump...
