Last week, we blogged about today’s Kuridsh Independence referendum.  Yesterday’s Kurdish independence rally attracted an enormous crowd, perhaps foreshadowing nearly 80% of the reported 3.9 million registered voters turning out at the polls today.

Jubilant Kurds described today as “the best day of their life” and some even took to flying the Brazilian...

Twitter has been afire today with the controversy about Stephen Curry going to the White House and reactions to President Trump’s speech in Alabama.

During President Trump’s speech at a rally for Luther Strange (R-AL), he addressed the growing trend among NFL players to kneel disrespectfully during the national anthem.  Trump asked,...

In the wake of the (legitimate) controversy about HHS Secretary Tom Price using public funds for private plane travel, the AP published an article entitled, “Education Secretary DeVos uses private plane for work travel.”  They bury the fact that she pays for this travel with her own, not taxpayer, monies.

Although Kid Rock (R-MI) has not formally announced his candidacy for the Senate, he’s making a big enough splash to be polling ahead of all the GOP primary candidates.  Combined.

Perhaps nothing less than losing the 2016 presidential election to Donald Trump could have motivated the left to brainstorm ways to tackle their popular vote problem.  The left tends to gravitate to the coasts and until relatively recently have left “flyover” country to the deplorable unwashed masses.

I used to be puzzled by patently- and provably-untrue statements made by prominent Democrats.  For example, former Democrat governor, presidential hopeful, and DNC chairman and current “Democrat consultant” Howard Dean stirred controversy earlier this year with his insistence that “hate speech” is not protected by the First Amendment.

Newsela is a relatively recently-established educational resource that purportedly specializes in non-fiction content for the nation’s K-12 schools, teachers, and students.  It sprung up as a private partner of Common Core, and the service reaches at least 75% of America’s K-12 classrooms.

Newsela recently came under fire for its 9/11 instructional material....

In Pakistan, a 35-year-old Christian man has been sentenced to death...
