So who’s using whom? Rush Limbaugh says that Trump has the media frustrated and wrapped around his little finger: …[T]hey can’t take him out. They can’t stop covering him. They can’t humiliate him. They can’t embarrass him. They can’t diminish his support. They’re powerless, and this has them in a panic. The media…

Scrolling through our Oberlin College tag presents a very sorry recent history of the campus. The Great Oberlin College Racism Hoax of 2013 was not used an opportunity to examine the campus grievance culture, but rather, as an excuse to to advance “even more extreme policies”.

The mainstream media is having a lot of fun reporting that Hillary is this year’s Gallup “Most Admired Woman” for a “record 20th time.” What they are leaving out, however, is that it appears that the long list of scandals and controversies that have plagued her since leaving her position as Secretary of…

Virginia had an election in November which Democrats, including governor Terry McAuliffe, hoped would give them control of the state senate.
