Oberlin College served a subpoena duces tecum on us, seeking our communications with sources related to our reporting on a lawsuit by Gibson’s Bakery against the college and its Dean of Students, Meredith Raimondo.

We went to court seeking to quash the subpoena and for a protective order, as we described in...

In January 2016 we reported on a story I called “almost too unbelievable to be true, but it is true.”

The story was about Ezra Nawi, who was revealed on an undercover operation to have bragged about turning in to the Palestinian Authority police Palestinians who sold land to Jews. That put...

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the hottest commodity in the progressive movement, and arguably in the Democratic Party.

The New York Democratic Socialist stunned the Democrat elite by defeating Joe Crowley, the number 4 Democrat in the House and a likely future Speaker of the House if Democrats regained control, in...

Elizabeth Warren repeatedly has said that she is not running for president.

Warren makes that statement, with the most earnest of faces, because she still has a November 2018 reelection to win, and her opponents are hitting her over the presidential plans. Republican candidate Geoff Diehl has made “Where’s Warren?” one of...

In some of the cases it’s clear that it was a self-inflicted martyrdom, in others it’s suspicious that perhaps the Israelis had a hand:

Republican Congressman Tom Reed’s “Extreme Ithaca Liberal” campaign ads may be the best troll job ever.

Reed is in NY-23, which includes liberal Ithaca. “Liberal” doesn’t fully capture the Ithaca vibe, which I described in November 2008:

So this is my quick take on the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh.

It’s getting crazy out here on the internet.

Trump names his nominee to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy at a live press conference at 9 p.m. tonight. Trump did a pretty good job keeping the selection on the quiet with Neil Gorsuch, and as of this writing, there have been no definitive leaks....

Oberlin College faces serious financial challenges, resulting from a variety of factors, particularly a decline in enrollment.

The “social justice” turmoil of recent years at Oberlin, the focus of local and national media coverage and mockery, likely was a contributing factor, as we pointed out in September 2017,

Rematch. REMATCH!

In Hillary’s mind, and the minds of #TheResistance, Hillary Clinton is the rightful president. Because (a) the Electoral College is a stupid thing and she won the popular vote, (b) the Russians rigged the election, (c) James Comey, having refused to prosecute Hillary despite overwhelming evidence, tanked Hillary’s campaign at...
