    The website’s parent company praised the outlet but said it failed to bring in sufficient traffic. Splinter is shutting down. In an internal memo sent Tuesday to staff, Paul Maidment, the editorial director of Splinter’s parent company G/O Media, praised the site’s journalism, but said the publication struggled to gain large numbers of readers. “Despite the hard work of everyone on that staff, which has produced much outstanding journalism and great scoops, establishing a steady and sustainable audience for a relatively young site proved challenging in a fiercely competitive sector,” Maidment said. “Given that reality, the leadership team made the...

    State Rep. Celia Israel (D-Austin) was named last week to lead the Texas House Democratic Campaign Committee. It’s a political action committee designed to help Democrats win seats in the Texas House. “We gained 12 seats last cycle and we want to protect those 12 seats,” Israel said during an interview for the State of Texas politics program. “And given the political energy that we’re all feeling, we want to capitalize and grow our numbers.” There is a lot at stake in the 2020 election in the Texas House. The winners will play a major role in redistricting starting in...

    Kyle Kusz, a kinesiology professor at the University of Rhode Island, published a book this month titled “Making American White Men Great Again: Tom Brady, Donald Trump, and the Allure of White Male Omnipotence in Post-Obama America." He theorized that Brady became popular due to the rise of “white rage and white supremacy,” according to Campus Reform.

    Once upon a time, America was founded on principles that all people are created equal, have equal rights under the law, and are free to think, say, and express themselves without facing official repercussion. But thanks to the hard Democrat Left, intolerance of other people’s views is now considered “tolerant.” Punishing others for holding opposing political opinions is now required. In short, modern-day Democrats have become old school tyrants just like those generations of Americans have shed blood and lost lives to defeat. That said, not all liberals have lost their minds. Not all of them have lost track of...

    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – The Port Authority says its police officers will not cooperate with ICE officials if immigration raids happen in Pittsburgh. At a Port Authority board meeting on Friday, CEO Katharine Kelleman said in Spanish that everyone is welcome — “Bienvenidos todos a Port Authority.” A spokesman for the Port Authority, Adam Brandolph, said Kelleman wanted to let customers know that Port Authority Police don’t work for ICE. He continued to say that the Port Authority does not want to let its customers live in fear that they’ll be deported just because they’re on a PAT vehicle

    By any sane standard, Joe Biden is not a racist. He’s a clod, a creepy leech, terminally dumb, and he says cringy things (including about race), but the idea that he harbors any vicious hatred for people based on their race is really, really far-fetched. Sure, there’s a statistically insignificant chance that Sleepy Floppy Gropey Joe is really Seggy Joe, wistfully recalling the days of segregation and Jim Crow – after all, those are Democrat inventions – but it’s … unlikely. But that doesn’t matter. The Social Justice Whiners who totally dominate the Democrat Party have made sure that neither...

According to Vox, the finding was first reported by James Stimson, a political scientist at the University of North Carolina who has published numerous books on public opinion research. “The annual estimate for 2018 is the most liberal ever recorded in...

As one delves deeper, one can clearly see that modern American conservatism comes in many types, shapes and flavors. There is no “one size fits all” American conservative. Here we discuss 29 different types of American conservative. The key to the success of any Presidential Conservative candidate or President is to be able to unite all these disparate groups under one singular banner. Is it even possible?

    NYC schools training teachers to discriminate against white students A new mandatory, $23 million “anti-bias” program is training New York City school teachers to discriminate against white children, no matter what. The New York Post recently published remarks from one training session, in which the instructor defined ‘racial equality’ as favoring non-white students over white students, regardless of any other circumstances. In another session among NYC school superintendents, attendees were asked to discuss various life experiences that inspired them to fight for social justice. One high-ranking school official– a white, Jewish man, described his family’s experience in the Holocaust and...
