    Even as the number of new foreign students enrolling in U.S. post-secondary schools has fallen for the past two school years, the number of international students and graduates on a controversial work permit has hit record levels, according to a new report. In the 2017-18 school year, the number of active “Optional Practical Training” permits — widely seen as an alternative to the hard-to-get H-1B visa — broke the 200,000 mark for the first time, the Institute of International Education reported Tuesday.

    Good morning kids. Midweek and the big story continues to be the hostage situation in Florida (and perhaps Georgia as well) with the attempted theft of another Senate seat and governorship. And yes, I do mean to imply that, however piss-poor a campaign and candidate Martha McSally was, the evidence strongly suggests the Democrats stole that election as well (and there's also the last minute shit-ton of ballots up in Milwaukee that torpedoed Scott Walker and Leah Vukmir,, shenanigans out in LA and quite a number of other races all over that are ripe for the swiping but if...

    Full Title: "Florida Dem Gillum condemns county for accepting email, fax votes -- despite previous calls to count every vote" Around 150 voters were allowed to submit their selections via email or fax in Florida’s Bay County due to the devastation caused by Hurricane Michael, drawing Democratic gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum’s fury despite his calls to count every single vote in a recount. Bay County Elections Supervisor Mark Andersen said Monday that some voters were allowed to submit their ballots via email or fax because they were displaced by Michael, which rocked the area just a month ago, the Miami...

    In a series of tweets issued Tuesday, Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., warned that Democrat lawyers now want a judge to unilaterally change Florida law in order to let Democrats steal the election in Florida. “Imagine if NFL team was trailing 24-22 but in final seconds hits a 3 pt kick to win. Then AFTER game lawyers for losing team get a judge to order rules changed so that last second field goals are only 1 point,” he said on Twitter. “Well that’s how democrat lawyers plan to steal #Florida election.” “For example, #Florida law requires that the voter signatures on...

    Lorena Martin was hired just over a year ago to fill a position unique to baseball. No other organization before the Seattle Mariners had a director of high performance in the baseball operations department. But on Monday, just over a month after the Mariners fired her, Lorena Martin posted a string of heavy comments to her Instagram and Twitter accounts, leveling accusations of racism and discrimination and specifically naming general manager Jerry Dipoto, manager Scott Servais and director of player development Andy McKay.

    A dispatch from Vienna. I've always enjoyed being in German-speaking cities, even though my German isn't what it used to be (and wasn't even much back then), and even though it's hard not to be reminded, now and then, of, well, you know. In Germany, to be sure, they go out of their way to remind you of that unpleasant interval from 1939 to 1945, filling their cities with hideous examples of what you might call the architecture of atonement – brutalist eyesores that we're supposed to perceive as heartfelt proclamations of sincere Holocaust remorse. At the same time, however,...

AddThis Sharing Buttons Author's note: On October 23, I spoke at Dartmouth, at the invitation of College Republicans and Students Supporting Israel. Before I had even arrived, I was attacked as a racist, a sexist and a bigot, and one professor sent out a tweet urging students to disrupt my talk. In fact, nearly 100 Dartmouth radicals had already met and laid out an elaborate plan of disruption and attack, which in the event was made possible but the Dartmouth administrators in charge of “Security and...

    The number of National Instant background Check System (NICS) background checks for October of 2018 is slightly more than the number from 2017. In October of 2017, there were 2,030,391 NICS checks. In October of 2018, there were 2,086,895 background checks. This does not mean more firearm sales for October of 2018 compared to October of 2017, because the character of NICS checks has been changing.The number of NICS checks for carry permits and carry permit rechecks are now almost as numerous as the checks for firearms and any other purposes. The permit and permit rechecks for October of...

    The race for Florida Agricultural Commissioner is currently undergoing a manual recount. Last Tuesday, Republican state Rep. Matt Caldwell was deemed the winner and claimed victory at an election watch party in North Fort Myers. But the vote differential between Caldwell and Democrat Nicole “Nikki” Fried was so small, at just 0.16 percent, that the race went to an automatic recount. The Miami Herald reported that at least 113,600 votes will be counted by hand for the race. Caldwell has filed a lawsuit against the Broward County Supervisor of Elections, Brenda Snipes. He joined Sundial to talk about the lawsuit...

    Democrat lawyers have descended on Florida in order to steal the Senate and Governor elections from Republicans. Hillary Clinton, Perkins Coie and other DC swamp dwellers are now working round the clock to install their radical left-wing candidates. In a series of urgent tweets, Senator Rubio said late Tuesday evening that Democrat lawyers are actually asking a judge to change Florida election laws AFTER the election in order to steal the Senate and Governor seats.

    Brexiteers within the Conservative party met Tuesday as the news emerged of a “technical level” agreement emerged — apparently leaked to Irish journalists sympathetic to the European Union but not to figures within the United Kingdom — and spoke of launching a “coup” against the Prime Minister, Britain’s The Times reported in the early hours of Wednesday morning. Forget all the noise and focus on the big picture. PM is going to recommend daylight robbery: paying £39bn for nothing in return; effectively handcuffing us to the Single Market and chaining us to the Customs Union forever. It is the worst...

    In an America that has rarely been more divided, one area of solid bipartisan consensus remains — on the need to “do something” about the threat China poses to the US-led global order. Even those who despise Donald Trump have mostly cheered the president on as he upends more than four decades of US policy on China. The most important underlying reason for this support is the fact that Mr Trump was not the one who changed the terms of engagement. China’s President Xi Jinping did that first. Under his predecessor, Hu Jintao, the mandarins in Beijing worried that using...

    Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) told Breitbart News Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow that Democrats are “stress-testing the integrity of our election system” to build a “road-map on how to steal the election from Donald Trump in 2020,” offering his remarks on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily. Gaetz discussed ostensible vote recount efforts in Florida: “The law requires certain reporting and transparency to occur regarding who voted, when they voted, and by what means they voted. That transparency isn’t just to make us feel better, it’s the kryptonite to fraud, because if we know how people are voting you’re able to triangulate against any...

Jones’ comments came in a small press “scrum” on Capitol Hill, with Alabama’s junior senator reportedly saying his campaign is “[a]lready off and running.” He was named by CNBC on the same day as the senator most likely to lose his or her seat in the upcoming 2020 cycle.

    Considering that the Democrats in particular, and the left wing in general, are controlling the message emanating from major and minor media outlets I believe it’s time something is done about it. What these “elites” really care about is money and power, which is one and the same. The ONLY way to stop their false news reporting is to hit them where it hurts. When you actually take the time to watch CNN or read the “stories” they post online, it’s quite clear that it’s not just bias they are guilty of, but actual hatred for our president and for...

    **SNIP** The board voted 12-2 to keep Clinton, with board members Geraldine "Tincy" Miller and Pat Hardy dissenting and one abstention. "I just do not respect the woman," Hardy said. "As far as I'm concerned, she's done a lot of detrimental things to our country." Miller agreed, saying “The Benghazi thing did it for me.” Republican board member Marty Rowley said he disagrees with Clinton's politics but noted she was an important figure. "I have to give credit where credit is due,” he said. “She is a significant political leader."
