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...

You know the radical left has gone well and truly off the rails when uber-progressive Bill Maher is among the only consistent voices of reason.  Maher is well and truly over the #MeToo movement’s insistence that a comment a woman finds offensive is just as onerous as a violent rape.

Democrats and celebrities have a tough time accepting reality…you know, like how us regular Americans don’t give a...

Sunday’s Grammy Awards proved once again that the American entertainment industry is increasingly disconnected from the people they’re meant to entertain.

As part of the show, artists read excerpts from Michael Wolff’s ‘Fire and Fury’, an anti-Trump book. ‘Fire and Fury’, a problematic work (the veracity of which Wolff himself is unsure)...

Their approach was all wrong. Though they successfully installed minimum wage hikes in blue locals, the exact population they sought to help experienced layoffs, hour cuts, and even store closures as a result...
