    The University of Missouri has no one to blame for their current crisis but their own leadership. After the campus protests of 2016, they could have corrected course. Instead they did nothing to address the problem and now they’re paying the price. Mizzou enrollment plunge continues: Three more dorms shutting down next year

    A shock leaked poll obtained by Belgian newspaper La Libre shows Marine Le Pen leading the French Presidential race on 26%, with conservative Francois Fillon in second place on 22%. If that result played out today it would mean that establishment favourite Emmanuel Macron would be knocked out and that Le Pen would take on Fillon one-on-one.

    President Donald Trump’s nominee for the Supreme Court could have a say in rulings on religious freedom, transgender bathrooms in schools, and private property rights, if he is confirmed before April 16. One is regarding whether a Christian school in Missouri is entitled to compete for the same state dollars as nonreligious schools. The outcome could affect so-called Blaine amendments in states across the country. The second case involves property rights in Wisconsin. The third is a transgender bathroom case out of a Virginia high school, and how broadly the federal government may interpret Title IX, a federal law that...

    GLENDALE, Ariz. — There certainly are legitimate reasons to hate North Carolina basketball, and thus this particular collection of Tar Heels who defeated the Gonzaga Bulldogs for the 2017 NCAA championship on Monday night at University of Phoenix Stadium. That’s not your problem with them, though. Is it? Michael Powell of The New York Times wrote this week a scathing column about North Carolina athletics and its involvement in the scandal in the university’s African and Afro-American Studies department in the years leading up to 2011, a series of activities that have been investigated by the NCAA since 2014 without...

    The analysis comes from a Jefferies report issued on Thursday and follows Anthem CEO Joseph Swedish's warning from two months ago that the company would be deciding "whether or not we surgically extract ourselves from certain rating regions, or even on a larger scale, depending on the stability of the marketplace."

    The health-care lobby is out in force again, but this time the allegiances are scrambled and unpredictable. rogressives campaigning to defend Barack Obama’s signature health-care law may find their biggest assist comes from the unlikeliest of allies: the billionaire industrialists Charles and David Koch and their conservative network.

    While it’s quite legitimate to be concerned about Russian influence in America politics, its rather remarkable to watch the dizzying pace by which people who in the past have expressed little concern about the matter are now suddenly obsessed with it. There has been plenty of finger pointing at those in President Donald Trump’s orbit about their business ties to Russia.

    Legal Insurrection ^ | 3/2/2017 | Kimbelee Kaye
    I keep thinking one of these days, politicians will remember the internet exists, and along with it, evidence of almost about everything they’ve said or done while in office (and often outside of the office, too — just ask David Wu). Alas… As the Trump cabinet targeting continues, Sen. Claire McCaskill stepped in a huge pile by claiming she never had a meeting or call with a Russian ambassador.

    Town halls centered around rowdy crowds disrupting Republican members of Congress grabbed headlines recently, but certain Senate Democrats facing tough reelection races next year have avoided in-person town halls in their own states all together. The Associated Press reported Friday Democratic Sens. Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota, Bob Casey of Pennsylvania, Bill Nelson of Florida, Sherrod Brown of Ohio and Joe Manchin West Virginia all decided against going to town halls to speak to and answer questions from their constituents, preferring to communicate through tele-town halls, e-mail opinion surveys, social media and speeches.

    U.S. home resales surged to a 10-year high in January as buyers shrugged of higher prices and mortgage rates, a sign of growing confidence in the economy. The National Association of Realtors said on Wednesday existing home sales jumped 3.3 percent to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 5.69 million units last month. That was the highest level since February 2007.

    The New York Times published a story Tuesday night claiming that there was contact between associates of Donald Trump and Russian intelligence officials during the presidential race. While the story states that the Federal Bureau of Investigation has found no evidence of collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign and essentially is a rehash of a previous story, journalists have gone bonkers over it.

    First off, NFL player Michael Bennett uses a photo of Martin Luther King to smear Israel. Ironically King was a fierce Zionist and passionate supporter of Israel. So Bennett is not only a tool but a fool. Secondly, he stands with the enemies of Israel- the same ideology that holds his people as slaves, still, to this very day.
