The most famous redheaded muscle prof in the world is the blog post gift that keeps on giving.

Slow news day? Click.

Scrambling to fill blog post time slot? Click.

American U Admin and Melissa Click w border

She’s not redheaded, and she didn’t demand some “muscle” to help her out.

But this American University official (not clear if administrator or Prof., or both) decided to play the role of Melissa Click, threatening to call the police on Washington Examiner reporter Ashe Schow and others who were covering the progressive...

Although February 1st is the “official” World Hijab Day, these students were apparently not...

Earlier this week, I blogged about the ongoing $10 bill saga and what looked to be its conclusion — the Treasury would leave Alexander Hamilton alone, or at least on the $10 bill.

Ohio State protest

Student protesters at Ohio State University recently learned a valuable lesson. Mainly because the administration drew a line in the sand and told them calmly that if they persisted, they would be arrested and possibly expelled.

The way it was handled was brilliant. An administrator explained to the students that the people...

The other day we showed the full Rebel Pundit video of the anti-Trump protest on the streets of Chicago.

It was not hard to guess which segment would go viral.

It is this woman demanding that the videographer (I think it was Andrew Marcus for that segment) either leave or dismantle his white...

Twitter, an invaluable news aggregator when properly run and used, has seemingly taken aim at conservatives and those advocating conservative causes.
