The New York Times has experienced an amazing epiphany: Sweden’s open-door policy to refugees from Muslim countries has created a crisis of violence and crime in Sweden.  While they myopically attribute this crisis to “gangs,” they do dabble with the idea that integration of foreign nationals into the existing socio-cultural framework...

President Trump has a fantastic sense of humor, the left?  Not so much.  The humorless left is in full meltdown mode after last night’s Gridiron dinner at which Trump made some hilarious remarks about the various idiocies of the media and Democrats during his first full year in office.

Earlier this week, Dick’s Sporting Goods announced that it will no longer sell AR-15 style and semi-automatic rifles.  This announcement seems a bit cynical given that Dick’s stopped selling AR-15 style and semi-automatic rifles six years ago, though its affiliate Field & Stream had returned to selling them five years ago. ...

Few things make me as simultaneously sad and frustrated as what is happening to higher education in this country.  In an apparent effort to boost the number of anti-Second Amendment high school walkouts, colleges and universities are now announcing that suspensions for anti-gun protests won’t harm their chance of admission.

As the Democratic Party lurches leftward and adopts a distinctly socialist stance, its political center has also shifted left.  Amazingly, this new Democratic Party considers among its centrists those figures we tend to think of as radical leftists:  Obama, Hillary, and to a lesser extent Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA).

The corruption of Mexican law enforcement has long been known, and it looks like little has changed.  Four Mexican police officers have been arrested on charges related to the abduction of three Italians.

Apparently, the police officers in question were ordered—possibly by the dangerous Jalisco New Generation Cartel (CJNG)—to abduct and deliver...

To that end, they have recruited current Representative Kevin Cramer (ND) to run for the Senate against incumbent Senator Heidi Heitkamp (D). This is a big deal because Cramer is considered...

Lobsters have gone from being considered “trash” food fit only for servants, the poor, and cats to being a much-loved, often expensive delicacy.

Everyone has heard the myth that lobsters “scream” when tossed in a pot of boiling water—they don’t, they have no vocal cords, but research does indicate that lobsters (and...

The Stoneman High School JROTC performed heroically during the shooting at their school in Parkland, Florida.  Two JROTC enlistees herded students and teachers into a room and shielded them with kevlar, their quick actions undoubtedly saved not only their own lives but those of others under their protection.

Until the prof sent me this story, I had never heard of a pangolin, and my initial impression (as a Southerner) was that it looks like a giant armadillo.  The pangolin, however, is an anteater that is currently endangered because its scales are seen as medicinal and its meat a delicacy...

Environmentalists have filed a lawsuit against the DOJ, hoping to stop the building of President Trump’s long-promised border way because endangered butterflies can’t fly high enough to follow their migration patterns.
