Hillary at Wellesley: When I was your age, we also had a president who’d be impeached for obstruction of justice

I have consulted the orb and bring you glad tidings. It hath been ordained that she shall run again in 2020. You know why? Because the orb hates Democrats, that’s why. Speechwriting 101: When you’re addressing a crowd, your first job is to know your audience. Whoever wrote this knew exactly what to say to a crowd of college-aged Massachusetts liberals to get them o...

Students demand firing of professor who objected to asking whites to leave campus (Update)

Bret Weinstein, a biology professor at Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington, was surrounded by a group of student protesters Wednesday after he wrote an email objecting to plans for a Day of Absence. In the past, the Day of Absence has been a day where black and Latino students leave campus to highlight their significance on campus. This year students wanted to change the format.

New Video Shows Abortionists Joking About Tearing Babies Apart (Updated)

Footage taken by the Center for Medical Progress at the National Abortion Federation conventions in 2014 and 2015  has to be one of the most sickening of all of the videos they have released over the last two years. The footage was shown in CMP’s most recent video uploaded on May 3, but released by David Daleiden’s attorneys, Steve Cooley and Brentford J. Ferreira, on Wedn...

ABC: FBI summoned Trump sons on cyberhack attempt against Trump Org — the day before Comey firing

Did a foreign intelligence service attempt to hack into the Trump Organization? Perhaps, according to this ABC News report, although that may be less interesting than the timing of the FBI’s actions as a result of the threat. When the FBI and CIA identified a potential attack aiming at the businesses of President Donald Trump, they summoned the two men in charge of the ...

Rockefeller Brothers Fund supports Israel boycott

(Paul Mirengoff) The Rockefeller Brothers Fund (RBF) commands $842 million in assets. The Rockefeller name, coupled with RBF’s financial clout, makes this institution a pillar of American philanthropy. Thus, it’s disappointing, though perhaps not altogether surprising to learn that RBF is a substantial contributor to the boycott Israel movement. According to th...

FBI illegally shared surveillance data on Americans with unauthorized third parties and federal contractors

As a legal matter, this seems straightforward. The FBI’s gotten too loose with sharing Americans’ data in violation of its own “minimization” rules and you’d better believe Jim Comey will be asked about it the next time he testifies before Congress. ...

The 4th Circuit’s Travel Ban Decision: An Affront to the Rule of Law

(John Hinderaker) Yesterday the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a district court order that found President Trump’s second travel ban to be unconstitutional. This is one of those news stories that make me sad rather than angry. The decision is ridiculous. The court’s majority relied heavily on candidate Donald Trump’s stump speeches in which he talked about a ban on all Muslim immigration. The court found that this “context” demonstrated a discrimin...

Inside the parked car they were sitting in was a stash of guns, ammo, drone parts and an inert hand grenade. The arrest report provides an inventory of the stash officers found in “a cursory search” of the vehicle: “a loaded AK 47-type assault rifle, another rifle, several assault rifle magazines and ...

Must-read from NYT: Breakdown of Turkish delegation assault on protesters

Perhaps it’s better to call this must-see from the New York Times. The riot in front of the Turkish embassy last week created charges and countercharges between the US and Turkey on responsibility for the fight, which got caught on video from a number of sources. The NYT’s team puts together the videos and tracks the actions of 24 men, inclu...
