Hillary Clinton gave her first press conference since December of 2015 on Friday which was open only to journalists of color.

While she did get at least one question about her ongoing email troubles, the event devolved unsurprisingly into a campaign rally.

Over the last year, colleges across the country have bent over backwards to accommodate student protests but they’re now finding out there are consequences for that.

Many alumni donors are making their disapproval known by withholding donations and that should be setting off alarm bells in the office of every college administrator.

A series of unsolved shootings in Phoenix, Arizona has led local authorities to believe they’re dealing with a serial killer.

Few things capture the eerie side of the American imagination like a a person who hunts and kills other humans. Countless books and films have been based on the subject.

Still, it’s...

In addition to ignoring as many of Hillary’s negatives as possible, another form of media bias is happening in this election cycle. The media is rehabilitating Bill and Hillary’s marriage.

It’s easier to see the Clintons back in the White House if they’re perceived as a happy and normal couple, not the...

Prager University has published a new video which is an instant classic. Haverford College student Olivia Legaspi compares her experiences as a college student to her job at McDonald’s which gave her the opportunity to attend college and explains why her job was more educational.

Last week while all eyes were on the Democratic National Convention, FBI Director James Comey made an alarming prediction about possible new developments with ISIS and terrorism.

He suggested that if and when ISIS is crushed in their Middle East strongholds, there will be a terrorist diaspora that will spread terror agents...

Now that Hillary Clinton is the official Democratic nominee, a significant number of Bernie Sanders supporters are gravitating to Green Party candidate Jill Stein, who seems happy to have them.

The question is whether support for Stein will have any impact on the outcome of the election and if she’s capable of...

Somerville, Massachusetts is an interesting city just outside of Boston. The densely occupied community is home to lots of old school Boston blue-collar types while also being extremely diverse. It’s also hipster heaven, as anyone who’s ever been to Davis Square can tell you.

A new documentary first crossed our radar yesterday at College Insurrection. It’s a short film about the state of free speech on college campuses which focuses on Brown University, where the filmmaker went to school.

Anthony Weiner, the disgraced former New York Congressman and husband of Hillary confidante Huma Abedin, has (ahem) inserted himself into the debate over the 2016 election.

Weiner has obvious reasons for backing Clinton which go beyond party affiliation and his wife’s relationship to the Democratic nominee. If Hillary wins, Weiner will have...

The Democratic National Convention is off to a great start for anyone who enjoys watching the Democratic Party implode under its own internal divisions. Not only are Bernie Sanders supporters putting on a show outside the convention center, they’re in the hall and making themselves heard.
