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...

The fallout from the December 2013 ASA resolution was swift. The...

Democrats had high hopes for a pick up in the newly-redistricted 1st District of Pennsylvania, the result of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court decision that threw out the 2010 redistricting for allegedly violating the Pennsylvania Constitution.

The issue of whether partisan redistricting violates the U.S. Constitution remains an open question, despite recent SCOTUS...

I know Trump and Elizabeth Warren are fighting when traffic to Elizabeth Warren Wiki’s Elizabeth Warren Native American / Cherokee Controversy page spikes.

And it’s spiking, because Trump once again has poked Warren over her claim to be an undocumented Native American.

As the July 9 date for Trump to announce his pick to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy nears, there is a vicious multi-front war evolving.

Of course, Democrats are attacking every likely nominee, with the anti-Catholic bigotry against Amy Coney Barrett the most prominent. Barrett would be the most finger-in-the-liberals-eye pick, and not...

Neil Gorsuch was an incredibly safe pick for Trump. Despite the plaintive wails of Democrats about a “stolen” seat, they didn’t have much with which to go after Gorsuch on the merits.

Nonetheless Democrats filibustered Gorsuch, forcing Republican’s to play the nuclear option for a SCOTUS nominee (as Democrats did in 2013...
