You might remember Emma Sulkowicz, the Columbia University student who vowed to carry her mattress around campus in protest of her alleged rapist who remained on campus. Sulkowicz turned what she says was a horrible tragedy into performance art; performance art that will suffice as her senior thesis. Sulkowicz chose not to…

Earlier today, the Speaker’s office released a light, approachable (we’ll talk about this later), “Happy Spring” video from the Man himself, showing John Boehner purchasing and installing a new blade on his push mower. Watch it here: He may be the Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, but he still…

When you’ve lost Chuck Todd, you’ve lost them all, Hil. Yesterday, Kemberlee Kaye covered the New York Times’ nuclear bomb of a story about the Clinton Foundation’s alleged status as a go between for a US-Russia uranium transfer.

During the unraveling of the Ottoman Empire, the embattled leadership ordered the forced deportation of ethnic Armenians from the region. Nobody has ever been able to say for certain how many people were slaughtered in the years following the order, but experts estimate that somewhere between 300,000 and 1.5 million ethnic…

Wow. First David Brock and now Howard Dean. Is there something in the water at MSNBC? Dean is the former chair of the DNC, a role now filled by our favorite Democrat Debbie Wasserman Schultz. As a long time party loyalist, Dean appeared on Morning Joe yesterday and attempted to downplay new…

We have been here before. The vicious anti-Israel boycotters of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement don’t like it when the tables are turned on them.  That’s why, when faculty pass their anti-Israel boycott resolutions, they include in the resolutions the demand that their right to boycott be protected. In other words, boycotters…

We’ve written quite a bit about Trigger Warnings since before it became fashionable: The fragile college student mind is getting more fragile by the day. As if the normal run of political correctness were not enough, we now have “Trigger Warnings” — the notion that students need to be warned that the material they…

Late last month, the internet descended into justified outrage over the launch of a “spa-like” abortion clinic located in Friendship Heights, just outside of Washington, D.C. Carafem’s approach to the business of abortion is made clear in one of their many flippant, casual slogans: Abortion. Yeah, we do that. In my…

They New York Times dropped a bomb. More like a daisy cutter, actually. The NYT’s latest exposé into the sordid world of the Clinton family suggests a direct connection between the Clinton Foundation, Russian donations (that were not publicly disclosed), and the Russian acquisition of Uranium One.

By a vote of 56–43, the Senate confirmed Loretta Lynch as Eric Holder’s replacement today. Lynch will be the first African-American woman to serve as attorney general. Legal Insurrection has vocally opposed the confirmation of Loretta Lynch, and painfully so, seeing as the Attorney General to-be was a law school classmate of…
