They’re everywhere. Elected representatives of the American people who have no reluctance whatsoever about assuming an adversarial posture against the nation’s immigration laws. As noted by The Hill, just this past Sunday, no less a figure than Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) did that very thing during an appearance on NBC’s Meet the Press. In criticizing the immigration policies of the present administration, Brown actually said, “It’s terrible when we are taking immigrants who have been here 10 or 15 years and working hard, paying their taxes, active in their church, active in communities, parents and we throw them out of...

No one is ever going to mistake MTV for Fox News. But a look at just how far its ratings have sunk as it becomes even more deeply entrenched in leftist politics is a good indicator that even those with more moderate ideologies have had enough of the lunacy. As reported by The Daily Wire, the numbers are in on this year’s VMAs, and they’re just abysmal. The once-monstrously-popular event was able to muster only 5.3 million viewers. For some context, remember that America, overall, has about 330 million people living here. And about 42 million of those are ages... Read more →


And just like that, “Gone with the Wind” is gone with the wind in Memphis, Tennessee. And the culprit? Oh, you know – racism. According to the Commercial Appeal, the Orpheum Theatre in Memphis says it will no longer screen the 1939 Oscar-winning film after receiving “numerous comments” from the community that referred to the American classic as “insensitive” and “racist.” A statement from the Orpheum Theatre Group reads: “While title selections for the series are typically made in the spring of each year, the Orpheum has made this determination early in response to specific inquiries from patrons. The Orpheum... Read more →


There have been rumblings of late that major grantors of credit are looking at alternative methods by which to evaluate the creditworthiness of applicants. Well, one of those grantors is moving past the “looking at” stage, and marching forward with its plans to expand the criteria they will consider when deciding if they’ll let consumers borrow. According to a piece over at Fox Business, Ford Motor Credit is preparing to unveil its new approach to the loan approval process as soon as this Friday. The move is being made to help shore up the sales of Ford vehicles, which have... Read more →


Did you think this stuff wasn’t really happening? According to a Fox News report, a first-grade girl in California was sent to the principal’s office at her school for allegedly “misgendering” a transgender student…who is also in the first grade. The girl reportedly encountered the classmate on the playground, and committed the crime of referring to the biologically male youngster by his given name. Unfortunately for the offender, she was unaware that the young person now identified as a girl, but too bad; it was off to the principal’s office with her. Karen England of the Capitol Resource Institute, a... Read more →


Apparently, America is bent on tearing down all of its statues of historical figures. Seems surreal, doesn’t it? Except it is, unfortunately, all too real, and it looks like next to go will be statues of the man lionized in popular culture as the discoverer of America, Italian explorer Christopher Columbus. As you surely could have guessed, Bill de Blasio, the ultra-liberal mayor of New York City, is now caught up in the wave of enthusiasm toward removing so many memorials to the various “architects” of the country known now as the United States of America. According to the Observer,... Read more →

This is what we’re up against, folks: American judges expressing a pronounced political take on a criminal case before them. Doesn’t inspire a ton of confidence in the system, does it? A judge from Maryland did that very thing recently when, just before pronouncing sentence on an illegal immigrant convicted by the court of fleeing the scene of a deadly auto accident, she expressed her understanding of why defendant Martin Martinez-Ballinas felt compelled to take off. Back on February 24, Martinez-Ballinas left the scene of an accident in which Marine Lance Corporal James Ray Ealden III was killed. Walden was... Read more →


The recent winner of the biggest single-ticket lottery prize in U.S. history, Mavis Wanczyk, has some thinking to do….lots of it…in the wake of her stunning good fortune. Make no mistake, the “problems” that come with winning a $758.7 million Powerball jackpot are, indeed good problems to have, but they can surely be problems, nevertheless. For starters, there are all the people - from family and friends, to perfect strangers - who will come out of the woodwork to ask her for a share of her dough. As a matter of fact, as soon as she emerged as the lottery... Read more →

Also on this episode the pardon of Sheriff Joe Arpaio, the Mayweather-McGregor fight, and how Amazon plans to bring down grocery prices. Read more →


Sadly, hearing about a professional athlete falling victim to his own financial mismanagement, or the mismanagement of another, is an all-too-regular occurrence. That’s why it’s such a pleasure to know the story of Ryan Broyles. Broyles, a wide receiver out of Oklahoma, was chosen by the Detroit Lions in the second round of the 2012 NFL draft. Currently a free agent, Broyles recognized something early on in his professional career that still seems to escape far too many players: That the average length of an NFL career is just a few short years, and so it is in one’s best...

So…how should we look at this? According to a recent poll from Rasmussen Reports, nearly 90 percent of those surveyed say that favorable public recognition - in the form of statue displays and other, similar memorials - of George Washington and Thomas Jefferson should be maintained, even in what has become an acutely volatile climate of historical revisionism. At first glance, that seems pretty good…until you flip the numbers around, and realize that means nearly 10 percent of Americans think such memorials of Washington and Jefferson should be eradicated. The poll of likely voters was conducted from August 17 to... Read more →


According to an article over at USA Today, a lot of American car buyers are doing it wrong. Car buying, that is. Specifically, the article, reflecting information gleaned from the popular automotive resource site Edmunds.com, points out that with the number of individuals financing their new rides for many years, but trading them in after just a couple, are doing themselves a distinct financial disservice. Perhaps the best reason to finance a car, rather than lease, is so that, at some point, you can drive a car that no longer has a financial obligation attached to it. You’ve heard those...

A piece over at Newsbusters.org tells of an Atlantic article that discusses the recent solar eclipse from what most would surely see as a rather curious perspective. The author, Alice Ristroph, who clearly has too much time on her hands, burdens Atlantic readers with a pointless article on the racial orientation of those parts of the U.S. that fell along the path of the eclipse. That’s right; the article is a racial overview…historical, sociological, etc….of the sections of the country over which the total eclipse was visible. How helpful. While a quick glance at the article, titled American Blackout (because... Read more →


As progressive social justice themes become an even greater presence in the realm of professional sports, more traditional themes of human justice are getting lost in all the noise. But not entirely. As a matter of fact, one NFL Hall of Fame coach saw fit recently to congratulate an active player for his outspokenness on behalf of the sanctity of life. As reported by The Daily Caller, Tony Dungy, the former coach of the Super Bowl-winning Indianapolis Colts, took to Twitter this past Sunday to praise Benjamin Watson, a tight end for the Baltimore Ravens, after reading the latter’s comments...
