    Last night Outkick broke the news that Linda Cohn, one of the most respected women to ever work at ESPN and the person who has hosted more SportsCenters over the past 25 years than any other current employee, was called and told by ESPN president John Skipper not to come to work after she went on the radio in New York City and said as follows: “They definitely overpaid for many of these products, whether it’s the NBA or starting up networks like the Pac-12 Network and SEC Network,” she said on WABC’s “Bernie and Sid Show.” “It’s well documented...
  • Student op-ed: Country music is ‘toxic trash’ that ‘hyper-sexualizes young women’

    Country music is “toxic trash” with lyrics that only serve to “validate the fragile masculinity of a male-dominated industry” in a genre that “is an insipid soft-served white-centric suburban utopia that thrives on phoned-in mediocrity and lazy writing.” That’s the argument a University of Louisiana at Lafayette student makes in an op-ed recently published in The Vermilion, the campus newspaper. In his column, George Clarke bemoans country music for having what he considers sexist lyrics while also lamenting that the genre is “ideologically rooted in the 1950s.”

    President Trump's Voting Integrity Commission unexpectedly revealed important evidence suggesting that a return to paper ballots is the only way to prevent the possibility of major fraud from sophisticated hacking efforts.  Stephen Dinan of the Washington Times covered the hearings: The country's voting machines are susceptible to hacking, which could be done in a way so that it leaves no fingerprints, making it impossible to know whether the outcome was changed, computer experts told President Trump's voter integrity commission Tuesday. div class="article_body bottom mrf-hidden"> The testimony marked a departure for the commission, which was formed to look into fraud and barriers...

    There is probably not an adult in America who hasn't experienced having someone cut in line. It’s exasperating not only because it’s fundamentally unfair, but because it’s highly disrespectful of those already waiting. More confrontational personalities will tell the person to go to the end of the line. Others will say nothing. Nobody likes it. Would it make you feel any better if the line breaker walked his cute teen-aged daughter to the front of the line and inserted her after you've been waiting an hour? It would be a deft move, intended to disarm you, but it would still...

    Next month, October 31st, will be the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther's posting his ninety-five theses on the door of the Wittenberg Castle Church. Whether one thinks Luther was right or wrong, this was one of the most important events in history. Western Civilization was rent in half. My views concerning Luther have gone all over the place during my lifetime, Was he a villain? Was he a hero? At times, I have held these diametrically opposed views. Now, I am of the opinion that he was a bit of both. Luther's chief attraction as a role model was that...

    President Trump is launching an all-out effort to move tax reform through Congress, quickly. In two tweets on Wednesday morning, President Trump urged Congress to get going: "The approval process for the biggest Tax Cut & Tax Reform package in the history of our country will soon begin. Move fast Congress!" the president wrote. And then: "With Irma and Harvey devastation, Tax Cuts and Tax Reform is needed more than ever before. Go Congress, go!" The president wants the biggest corporate tax cut he can get, and it doesn’t have to be revenue-neutral, White House Budget Director Mick Mulvaney told...

    It's been floated for years and there's growing momentum for the criminalization of thought for anyone who dares not give full allegiance to the climate change religion. Because we all know that throwing political opposition in jail is a tried-and-true tactic used by socialists, and that's far preferable and easier to actually having to be knowledgeable on the topic at hand.

    According to Kenneth Waltzer, executive director of the Academic Engagement Network—an academic free speech group whose inaugural conference Landa spoke at in May and of which she is an active member—Landa was targeted for her pro-Israel activism. "Long before she filed a grievance, she was aggrieved," he said. "I know that when they learned she was active outside the department on behalf of opposing wacko ideas about Israel, their attitude toward her changed."
  • Poland Demands $1 Trillion In WW2 Reparations From Germany

    Poland refuses to take it’s EU immigrant quota. Germany threatens to fine Poland $75 million. Poland responds by demanding $1 trillion in WW2 reparations from Germany. Germany should consider paying Poland as much as $1 trillion in World War II reparations, according to the Polish foreign minister. Poland’s foreign minister Witold Waszczykowski told local radio station RMF that “serious talks” were needed with Germany to “find a way to deal with the fact that German-Polish relations are overshadowed by the German aggression of 1939 and unresolved post-war issues.”

    September 12, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) – Pro-life Catholic leaders are defending President Trump against Pope Francis after the Pontiff questioned Trump’s pro-life views, despite the fact that Trump has racked up major pro-life accomplishments during his short time in office. “If Pope Francis is so concerned with the commitment of others to the defense of preborn children, he should consider his own words and actions, as well,” said Michael Hichborn, founder and president of the Lepanto Institute. The Pope questions the President’s pro-life credentials On the return flight from his visit to Colombia, Pope Francis criticized Trump over his plans...

    Lockheed Martin Corp. is a step closer to making at least 19 of its F-16 fighter jets in Greenville now that the White House has formally approved the sale of the jets to Bahrain. The U.S. Defense Security Cooperation Agency announced Sept. 8 that it had given Congress formal notification of the proposed $2.78 billion deal. Under the federal government’s process for selling arms to foreign governments, the Trump administration will be able to proceed with the sale unless Congress objects within 30 days. While Congress has the power to block a proposed arms sale to a foreign government, it...

    Responding to recent criticism about Bernie Sanders in her book, Hillary Clinton claims that she beat Sanders in a landslide during the 2016 Democrat Presidential primary. Unlike his opponent, Senator Sanders is putting the past behind him and is about to launch yet another campaign promoting his Medicare-For-All health care scheme, touting the tag line "Leave no American behind." A growing list of like-minded, Democrat/Socialist fellow travelers have jumped on the bandwagon in support of the Sanders plan. Names like Senators Sheldon Whitehouse, Corey Booker, and Kamala Harris should be of no surprise to anyone. The Sanders’ scheme promises a...

    The conservative Judicial Crisis Network said Wednesday it’s running an ad in Minnesota targeting Democratic Sen. Al Franken for refusing to back one of President Trump’s federal court judges, telling the senator to “stop being petty” and “grow up.” Mr. Franken announced last week he won’t return his “blue slip” for Minnesota Supreme Court Justice David Stras, Mr. Trump’s nominee for the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. Under Senate tradition, the chamber won’t proceed on a judicial nominee unless both home-state senators return their blue slips, signifying acquiescence in the pick. “Justice David Stras earned more votes and a...

    Hillary Clinton isn’t buying Donald Trump Jr.’s latest explanation for meeting a Kremlin-connected lawyer during the presidential campaign. “It’s ridiculous,” Clinton said on NBC’s “Today” Wednesday. “It’s another absurd lie to cover up what really was going on, which I hope we uncover and understand.” The June 2016 meeting in Trump Tower with Natalia Veselnitskaya, a lawyer with ties to the Kremlin, was pitched to Trump Jr. as an opportunity to receive damaging information about Clinton as “part of Russia and its government’s support for Mr. Trump.” After originally asserting the meeting was about policies related to Americans’ adoption of...

    Was the top secret space coast launch late this past week really carrying components of "Rods from God," the nickname of a doomsday weapon known as "Project Thor" that can rain hell on North Korea in an attack traveling at Mach Ten? In an exclusive feature, the National ENQUIRER describes America's possible deployment of satellite arsenals of tungsten, non-nuclear rods the size of telephone poles, "the equivalent of a meteor crashing into the Earth's crust." The tabloid explains that deployment of this weaponry by the US military awaits only the President's "GO" order. "Unlike a nuclear weapon, the Rods from...

    The Never-Trumpers of every stripe still don’t get it. Ten months after his historic defeat of Hillary Clinton, those opposed to Donald Trump—whether from the political right, left, or middle—have yet to grasp why so many Americans—especially evangelical Americans—have embraced, or at least tolerate, the politics of the Man from Manhattan. As my wife (and chief editor) pointed out when I began this piece, “It’s really a no-brainer. There was no other option.” But nevertheless, to those dulled by their disdain for Mr. Trump, let me explain again our continued support for him. First, let me make this abundantly clear:...
