We never have used pop-ups, pop-unders, pop-overs, autoplay audio ads, or any of the other type of ads that take over the screen to one degree or another. Particularly infuriating are the pop-up/over ads that have an “X” that makes you think you are getting rid of it, but in fact...

There is nothing spontaneous about Elizabeth Warren’s political career. Much like Hillary Clinton, Warren is very calculating and contrived — she doesn’t interact much with the press except in controlled situations or with obviously friendly media. Warren obsessively stays on script and sticks to talking points.

Elizabeth Warren is doubling down on her claim to be Native American, and rejecting claims she misleadingly or falsely claimed that status, despite a mountain of evidence that Warren is NOT Native American and used that false claim to try to advance her law professor career.

The anti-Israel movement, including Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) activists, seek to drive Israeli and pro-Israel speakers from college campuses through disruptions. The goal is to scare off not only speakers, but students who want to invite speakers.

The physical intimidation that accompanies this strategy goes beyond expressing disagreement.
