  • Minneapolis Principals Not Allowed to Suspend Black Students, Only White Ones

    The Trumpet ^ | December 18, 2014 | Robert Morley
    The Minneapolis, Minnesota, school system has a big problem. According to Superintendent Bernadeia Johnson and the Justice Department, the vast majority of its 2,300 teachers are racists. To solve this problem, Johnson says the district must implement racism against white and Asian students. It is part of President Barack Obama and the Justice Department’s new protocols to combat racism. But does it really make sense to try to solve a perceived racism problem in teachers by institutionalizing racism against innocent students? Does using racism to solve any kind of problem make sense? Here’s what is happening: Black students in Minneapolis...
  • Texas theater to show “Team America” in place of canceled “Interview”

    Sometimes, you just need Texas. As the rest of the entertainment industry was being brought to its knees by the threat of more hacking and terrorism, a theater in Texas decided to both capitalize on this story and stand up for freedom of speech. The only bummer is they’re holding a free screening, as I’d hoped they’d rake in a bunch of cash for filling a gap in the market, which would be as appropriately American as the statement they’re making about our values. They should be rewarded, and they will be, at least with brand recognition and good will:
  • Climate change: Beavers boost emissions with 800 million kg of methane every year

    Beavers are contributing to climate change, adding an estimated 800 million kg of methane to the atmosphere every year, scientists have found. Over the last century, there has been a worldwide conservation effort to save beavers from extinction. The fur trade between the 16th and 19th century almost led to the annihilation of beavers across the globe. After trapping was limited and the creatures were reintroduced to their natural ranges, their numbers grew significantly, with scientists now estimating their population to have reached over 10 million worldwide. Beavers build dams in rivers to create standing ponds,However, the consequence of this...

    You have to say one thing for Mary Landrieu. She told everyone that she wouldn’t be going down without a fight, and she’s living up to her word. In the closing hours of the election, Landrieu supporters have been busy bees indeed. One report coming in to Hot Air indicates that a very specific threat has been going around to anyone in several low income communities as to what will happen if they don’t get out there and vote for the incumbent Senator. The following flyer was picked up by an activist on the scene and submitted to the Black...

    With the runoff just two days away in Louisiana’s Senate race, the excitement of the final contest in the 2014 midterms is so thick one could cut it with a knife … at least on the GOP side.

    In a landslide election that saw pro-life candidates winning across the nation, pro-life advocates have been able to take over the Senate from pro-abortion Democrats, led by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. Harry Reid’s days as the pro-abortion leader of the U.S. Senate are now numbered as pro-life candidates picked up enough seats to take over the Senate. Reid has done pro-abortion President Barack Obama’s bidding and ensured that abortion-funding Obamacare was passed through on a party-line vote, with not a single Republican voting in favor of the legislation. Reid made sure that no pro-life bills received a vote in...

For $50 a month, they can connect to the Internet on the move, often avoiding hefty fees charged by hotels, airports and conference facilities. Some people upgrade their wireless data plans to make their smartphones into hotspots.

As Patrick Buchanan shows in his recent book, "The Greatest Comeback: How Richard Nixon Rose From Defeat to Create the New Majority," Nixon campaigned tirelessly for Republican candidates in the 1966 midterm elections. That election produced big Republican gains, and helped elect Nixon president in 1968. So why isn't Clinton following Nixon's example? Simply? She doesn't see this as a good year for her...

She’s a wife, a mom and an avid power walker. She’s also a person of deep faith in God. Tammy is the co-founder of “Dublin Girls Run,” a group of local ladies that combines Southern fellowship with physical fitness.

A "senior US official" leaked an audio recording of a telephone conversation between Obama and Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to Channel One. In it the 35-minute conversation, which took place on Sunday, the US President appears downright hostile at points, and even cuts off Netanyahu in the middle of his protestations over a one-sided truce proposal which would have seen Hamas receive all its key demands, but that Israel ultimately rejected. The following is an excerpt...
