    Accuracy in Academia ^ | January 28, 2015 | Spencer Irvine
    At the Modern Language Association (MLA) convention in Vancouver, Canada, the degree to which many professors are divorced from reality was brought into sharp focus. Few panels at the conference that draws thousands of English professors from around the world actually dealt with literature but no matter what issue was discussed in the hundreds of panels at the MLA, professing panelists kept a safe distance from the real world: o When the MLA gets through with children’s literature, neither the kids nor their parents will recognize it. Apparently, there are books and illustrated guides, praising the likes of Marx and...

    DES MOINES, Iowa — Texans Ted Cruz and Rick Perry courted Iowa conservatives on Saturday at the first major gathering of the 2016 Republican field — a chance for more than a half-dozen White House hopefuls to throw elbows, shape narratives, generate buzz and frame the choice to their advantage.Perry, making his first foray as an ex-governor, cast himself as a seasoned executive who can actually point to achievements — unlike, say, a senator.“I got a feeling that after six years of disappointment, of mediocrity and decline, a slow-course correction is not what voters are going to be looking for...

    The Donald doesn’t think much of Mitt or Jeb. Donald Trump came out guns blazing at a high-profile GOP event in Iowa on Saturday — blasting possible presidential contenders Mitt Romney and Jeb Bush. “It can’t be Mitt, because Mitt ran and failed. He failed,” Trump bellowed, drawing cheers from the riled-up audience at the Freedom Summit. “He choked. He had that election won.” Trump was equally blunt in assessing former President George W. Bush’s younger brother. “You can’t have Bush,” Trump said. “The last thing we need is another Bush.”

    A Florida lawmaker believes he is on solid ground with a proposal dealing with abortionists operating in the state. State Rep. Mike Hill of Florida has introduced a bill requiring abortionists to have admitting privileges at a hospital within 30 miles of the clinic where they are terminating the lives of babies. Hill explains the bill: "And the reason for that is we find that now if there is a complication because of an abortion, that the doctor performing that surgery simply calls the emergency management.

In all, 198 stores in 23 states will close, as will the 113-year-old discount retailer’s 352,000-square-foot distribution center in Abilene. During the liquidation sale, the company plans...

It’s rare to see a mention of the two men of late that does not include “mentor” or “protégé” or both. Former Gov. Jeb Bush, 61, is the master, and Sen. Marco Rubio, 43, the disciple, faithfully bearing the conservative torch. (SNIP) Rubio, though, followed a much different path.

    Maybe they just really love their K9 officers. A Florida sheriff's office upgraded its headquarters' rugs with the bold proclamation, "In Dog We Trust." The mats, which feature the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office seal, should have read, "In God We Trust."

In a fit of anger, one man who had to be escorted out of the church verbally threatened dad John Jonchuck Jr., who did not attend...

    La Raza operative Marco Rubio appeared on the Sean Hannity Show Monday to promote his new ghostwritten book, American Dreams: Restoring Economic Opportunity for Everyone. During the hour-long appearance, Hannity heaped praise on Rubio– but took his Goebbels-esque propagandizing to new heights by lining up fake callers to push for Rubio 2016… Lourdes: Hiiiiiiii! I’m kinda excited to talk to two freedom fighters at the same time!

At a decisive moment in history when our nation required a strong and unbiased voice from its’ senior law enforcement official, you Mr. Holder, made it your personal mission to join with other racial antagonist and politicize a tragic event, accusing a young white police officer of a racially motivated killing in what we now know was a justified self-defense shooting of a predatory felon. Your behavior is unbelievable. You sir, have sacrificed your integrity on the altar of political expediency. You, Mr. Holder, are the “coward” and hypocrite you so loudly denounce when speaking...
