    Dale Earnhardt Jr., NASCAR's most popular driver, says the Confederate flag is "offensive to an entire race" and should be removed from the grounds of the South Carolina Statehouse. Earnhardt Jr.'s comments Friday followed an announcement NASCAR made this week backing South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley's call to remove the flag from the Statehouse grounds. NASCAR also noted that it bars the flag symbol in any official NASCAR capacity. Earnhardt backed NASCAR's position when asked about the issue before practice at Sonoma Raceway.

    Just like Rachel Dolezal and Bruce Caitlyn Jenner, right? In this case, it wouldn’t be difficult to disabuse Stephen of his distorted self-image. Simply drop him off in the African savannah and allow him to attend a short re-education camp with some real leopards, which can run 30 mph and have been observed taking down elands weighing 2000 lbs. He’ll be quickly reminded of his human frailties.

    Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson, a civil rights activist, founder and president of BOND (The Brotherhood Organization for a New Destiny), and author of “Scam: How the Black Leadership Exploits Black America,” in an interview with WND, slammed the teaching of white privilege in public schools as destructive to both African-American students and everyone else. Peterson stated: “These classes will make another generation of blacks feel like victims and have them believing that whites owe them. It will also continue to divide the races for years to come because whites and other non-blacks know that it’s not fair to favor one...

    The administration of Florida Gov. Rick Scott (R) has previously ordered its employees not to mention the term “climate change” in the course of their official duties. Now, in what appears to be a further attempt at chilling discussion of the threat to the planet, a state employee has been suspended for mentioning the forbidden phrase in meeting notes and told to get a doctor’s release before returning to work.

    Rahm Emanuel’s path to re-election as Chicago’s mayor just got a little murkier. On Monday a large group of African American ministers led by Operation Push activist Jesse Jackson endorsed Rahm’s opponent, Jesus “Chuy” Garcia. Emanuel has been having a lot of trouble with three entrenched constituencies in the Windy City: The black community, the Hispanic community and the teachers union. Still, in the recent election he did better with black voters than he might have. But today, after losing Jesse Jackson and the city’s black ministers, Emanuel might have received a fatal blow to his shaky base of African...

Footage of the White Privilege Conference, obtained by the Education Action Group, features a variety of speakers and organizers confirming cancerous biases by issuing one reckless and tasteless statement after the next.

In a sign that mainstream media is beginning to pay serious attention to the unidentified flying object phenomenon, local Arizona TV news affiliate ABC15 did a two-minute news segment on the fireball which was reportedly streaking across the sky as the newscast aired live. Witness photographs and videos were shown on-screen, and this one, showing an irregular flight path of the object, was broadcast. The...

New York Sen. Charles Schumer says Democrats have now picked up the support of GOP Sen. Thad Cochran of Mississippi, and he said he believes Democrats can get the 67 votes the Constitution requires to ratify a treaty.

    For a president under siege, maybe this could help. In an episode of “Mythbusters” on the Discovery Channel to be shown on Dec. 8, President Obama will help determine whether the Greek scientist Archimedes really set fire to an invading Roman fleet using only mirrors and the reflected rays of the sun. Producers of the television series are not saying exactly how Mr. Obama will help prove — or disprove — that myth. But the first presidential appearance is intended to help spur interest in math and science as part of the White House effort to increase American competitiveness in...

The mosque should be built precisely because we don't like the idea very much. We don't need constitutional protections to be agreeable, after all.

The two Internet giants have teamed up and have decided that increasingly "women are leaving men for other women." Shocking news, I know. Only one little problem. Oprah.com has no proof for any such proclamation. After the shocking headline and the first three paragraphs proclaiming a new lesbian revolution in America today, though, the piece admits that there are no real statistics to prove the thesis. The whole claim is merely based on the anecdotal stories of the "experts" that Oprah.com dug up...

    THOUSANDS of householders are facing the prospect of paying Britain’s first domestic rubbish tax under an Environment Agency proposal to trial the system in councils across England and Wales, writes Jonathan Leake. The scheme would see householders charged according to the weight of all non-recyclable waste they put out for collection each week. Green waste — recyclable paper, metal and glass, for example — would still be taken away for free. The agency’s “pay as you throw” proposal is aimed at breaking a deadlock between government departments that has held up attempts to “green” Britain’s waste disposal system. Tomorrow, the...

President Bush has dug in his heels on a fight he surely cannot win. The only political figure of note who has fully supported his position publicly seems to be former President Jimmy Carter — a salutary reminder of...

The pro-Government Al-Siyassah, quoting an unnamed security source, said the suspects had been watched by security since they arrived in Kuwait and were arrested "in due time." It did not say when or how the smugglers entered Kuwait or when they were arrested. The paper said the smugglers might have had accomplices inside Kuwait. It said Interior Minister Sheik Nawwaf Al Ahmed Al Sabah would hand over the smuggled...
