  • 40 Percent Of Kids Now Born To Single Moms—Up 700 Percent Since 1960

    National Economics Editorial ^ | Jan 16, 2017 | Dylan Scott
    "A recent report from the Social Capital Project reveals that the American family is disintegrating, fast. Fully 40 percent of mothers are currently unmarried. This is bad news, because good families depend on good marriages. Marriage is the moral glue that binds them. It’s the stabilizing agent. There’s a reason that children from married couples do better in school, and are less likely to end up in jail as compared to children of unmarried mothers, known as “fragile families."
  • Hawaii prepares for 'unlikely' North Korea missile threat [FLASHBACK]

    AP via Boston Herald ^ | July 21, 2017 | AP Staff
    HONOLULU — Hawaii is the first state to prepare the public for the possibility of a ballistic missile strike from North Korea. The state's Emergency Management Agency on Friday announced a public education campaign about what to do. Hawaii lawmakers have been urging emergency management officials to update Cold War-era plans for coping with a nuclear attack as North Korea develops nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles that can reach the islands.

    Newark Star-Ledger ^ | January 15, 2018 | Christian Estevez
    New Jersey has some of the best public schools in the country. But our current system is not operating on a level playing field. While wealthy suburban schools continue to provide rich educational experiences for their mostly white student population, too many Latino and African American students attend segregated schools hampered by intense poverty. We allowed segregation to permeate our state education system for too long, institutionalizing a separate but equal doctrine. New Jersey's schools are among the top five most segregated in the country. This decades-long failure continued under both parties. The Latino Action Network is heartened that Governor-Elect...

    [Vanity] Freepers, please provide your own story of what happened during March 1981 when you first heard the news that President Reagan was shot by John Hinckley Jr. I was an Ivy League graduate student at the time, in a technical field, and I was shocked to hear faculty in my engineering department say they were glad that Reagan was shot. Wayne Allyn Root relays a story from Columbia, where all his classmates leaped into the air, cheering wildly, as if the Columbia football team had finally scored a touchdown. [] The Newbuster article referenced above relays some AP and...

    Actress Jamie Lee Curtis attacked President Trump on Saturday over a false alarm sent by Hawaii's Emergency Management Agency (EMA) that alerted residents to a supposedly incoming ballistic missile. In a tweet posted Saturday afternoon, Curtis attacked Trump on Twitter, writing "YOU DID THIS!" despite the fact that the EMA, which is run by the state of Hawaii, apologized for the incident Saturday afternoon and Trump was golfing at the time. "This Hawaii missle scare is on YOU Mr. Trump. The real FEAR that mothers & fathers & children felt is on YOU. It is on YOUR ARROGANCE. HUBRIS. NARCISSISM....

    New York Daily News ^ | 1/12/2017 | Sandra Karas
    You can call me a multitasker; I’m a working actress, an accountant and also a tax attorney. My resume may sound a little unusual, but when April 15 hits, I will fit in with tens of millions of working Americans who have been hurt by sweeping changes in the tax code. The Trump-Republican tax plan, passed without one vote across the aisle, is the most unpopular tax bill in history, and for good reason. It gives small, temporary tax relief to middle-class workers, then raises our taxes to deliver large, permanent tax cuts to the super-rich and the corporations they...

    Townhall ^ | January 13, 2018 | Timothy Meads
    Earlier today, Townhall reported that a false alarm emergency notification had been sent to every single person with a cell phone in Hawaii warning of impending danger. Now, authorities are investigating how this disastrous error occurred in the first place, while panic-stricken citizens recover from the traumatic experience. The text message read "Emergency Alert: BALLISTIC MISSILE THREAT INBOUND TO HAWAII. SEEK IMMEDIATE SHELTER. THIS IS NOT A DRILL," at approximately at 8:07 HST. While some took to Twitter to determine if it was real, most believed the text message was real and began calling loved ones and seeking shelter. [snip]...
  • Oprah Will Run In 2020 Because All The Other Democratic Candidates Are Even Worse

    01/11/2018 4:11:51 AM PST · by Kaslin · 44 replies ^ | January 11, 2018 | Kurt Schlichter
    If I was a Democrat, like everyone at NBC and noted Cruise Director Bill Kristol, I’d want Oprah Winfrey to run for president too. She’s got all the qualifications to be a Dem candidate - she’s vacuous, she embraces all the required liberal taboos, and she hates the right people - that is, people like you. And, best of all, Oprah isn’t one of the horde of weirdos, losers, and mutations already threatening to run.She knows how to string a sentence together, which is useful. Oprah wouldn’t be a human gaffe machine like Touchy Joe Biden. She’s also not 87...

    US Defense Watch ^ | January 10, 2017 | Ray Starmann
    On January 10, 49 B.C., Julius Caesar crossed the Rubicon River in Northern Italy, with his legions to march on Rome. While crossing the narrow river, Caesar is said to have remarked, ‘Iacta alea esto’, ‘The die is cast’, in reference to his defiance of Roman law, which forbade any general from crossing the Rubicon and entering Italy with an army. To do so was tantamount to high treason. Caesar’s action made his intentions crystal clear to those in Rome. He intended to join the struggle for power, as civil war loomed. Since that day, the term, ‘Crossing the Rubicon’...

    A group of female House Democrats, including Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., plan to wear black for President Donald Trump’s first State of the Union address later this month, in an anti-harassment demonstration to show solidarity for victims of sexual harassment and misconduct. “We are supporting the brave women in every industry and every corner of the country who are making their voices heard,” Pelosi said in a statement. “We are at a watershed moment in the nationwide fight against sexual harassment and discrimination, and we must continue to keep up the drumbeat of action for real change.” The effort...

    Google is facing renewed controversy over its alleged intolerance toward conservatives at the company, after a class action lawsuit filed by former engineer James Damore disclosed almost 100 pages of screen shots of internal communications in which employees discuss sensitive political issues. The evidence appended to the lawsuit, which was filed on Monday, includes a message from Rachel Whetstone, who worked as a senior Google executive after a career in the UK Conservative party, bemoaning “prejudiced and antagonistic” political discourse at the company. Damore, who was fired in 2017 after writing a controversial memo about gender and technology, alleges in...

    As expected, stars of film and television blacked out the red carpet of the Golden Globes on Sunday. Women and men across the industry wore black in support of the #MeToo movement and gender equality in light of the recent wave of Hollywood sexual harassment allegations. Many on the carpet also wore pins supporting Time’s Up, an initiative recently founded by 300 prominent women in entertainment to fight harassment and abuse in the workplace. The group, led by stars like Reese Witherspoon, Shonda Rhimes, Kerry Washington and America Ferrera, was the one to organize the all-black carpet and took...

    Fox News ^ | January 5, 2017 | Adam Shaw
    One of the most entertaining "excerpts" circulated from Michael Wolff's explosive tell-all was a passage describing President Trump supposedly watching a “gorilla channel” for hours on end. The excerpt, of course, was a parody and wasn't actually from the “Fire and Fury” book. But it managed to fool plenty of Trump critics anyway, with an MSNBC contributor and others initially appearing to treat the passage as legit.

    The Coach's Team ^ | 1/6/18 | Suzanne Eovaldi
    Coincidence or connection? It’s odd how statistics showing the escalating opioid crisis show the same yearly growth during the waning years of the Obama administration! The 2014 list of ten states with the most opioid deaths show eight to be red or leaning red states with only Delaware, at number nine and Rhode Island at # 6, being clearly left-voting states. Number one in the year 2014 was West Virginia which still held that awful title in 2016. Note here how W.Va is a long standing red state, full of working class employees and coal miners. New Mexico was second...

    The Daily Signal ^ | December 29, 2017 | Grace Carr
    California lawmakers are debating whether to adopt a bill that would require California’s public universities and colleges to offer abortion drugs at their health centers. Senate Bill 320, sponsored by state Sen. Connie Leyva, D-Chino, will mandate that the state’s community colleges and public universities provide women with abortion pills for up to 10 weeks of pregnancy so they don’t face the “burden” of traveling to obtain an abortion. While the bill—if passed—isn’t set to take effect until 2020, it would also require the state’s public university health centers that don’t already offer abortion pills to provide transportation to an...

    My Leftist friends (as well as many ardent #Never Trumpers) constantly ask me if I'm not bothered by Donald Trump's lack of decorum. They ask if I don't think his tweets are "beneath the dignity of the office." Here's my answer: We Right-thinking people have tried dignity. There could not have been a man of more quiet dignity than George W. Bush as he suffered the outrageous lies and politically motivated hatreds that undermined his presidency. We tried statesmanship. Could there be another human being on this earth who so desperately prized "collegiality" as John McCain? We tried propriety has...
