    If you need an accurate update on some of the madness at the nation's institutions of higher learning, check out Minding the Campus, a nonprofit independent organization. John Leo, its editor in chief, says that the organization's prime mission is dedicated to the revival of intellectual pluralism and the best traditions of liberal education at America's colleges and universities. Leo's most recent compilation of campus madness leaves one nearly breathless. In a USA Today op-ed, Emily Walton, a sociology professor at Dartmouth University, said that all college students should take a mandatory course on black history and white privilege. She...

    (CNN) — Tuesday night's CNN/The New York Times debate stage will feature a record 12 candidates. It could be the last debate appearance for up to 33% of them. Former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julián Castro, Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar and former Texas Rep. Beto O'Rourke are all in deep danger of not making November's debate. That means Tuesday may be the last chance fo those four to give their campaigns a realistic chance to have a measure of success. Fundraising and polling qualification thresholds have been bumped up once again for November's debate. Jumping...

    National Review ^ | 10/07/2019 | Alexandra DeSanctis
    The latest polling data from Morning Consult show former vice president Joe Biden climbing back into a stable lead in the Democratic presidential primary, after several weeks of running alongside Massachusetts senator Elizabeth Warren. Among Democratic-primary voters surveyed over the past week, 33 percent say they support Biden compared to just 21 percent who support Warren. Still in third place, Vermont senator Bernie Sanders comes in close behind Warren with 19 percent support. When asked who their second choice in the field would be, respondents who selected Sanders as their first choice preferred Biden to Warren as their next best...

    Thousands of pro-lifers stood outside in all kinds of weather Sunday to pray for unborn babies and their mothers. People gathered in about 1,600 communities in the United States and Canada for the annual Life Chain, according to organizers. The event brings pro-lifers together in their local communities to pray for an end to abortion and peacefully witness to the truth about life in the womb. In West Reading, Pennsylvania, about 75 people stood on the sidewalks in the rain, holding signs encouraging mothers to choose life, the Reading Eagle reports. “We got rained on quite well but people stayed...

    Democratic candidates gathered in Sin City and went all in on gun control. Granted, it wasn’t hard to do when the event was sponsored by gun control groups Giffords and March for Our Lives and the table dealer was a left wing cable news network that didn’t even gamble their own ratings by putting it on their network. They live-streamed on the web instead.If you missed it, I don’t blame you. Still, there’s some big election-year ideas they’re betting on.BansThe field split on outright confiscation. They must have noticed that U.S. Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.) isn’t at the table anymore...

    Interstate 10 is now three lanes both ways between Tucson and Casa Grande, but your commute probably won’t get faster. The Arizona Department of Transportation projects I-10 could be bumper-to-bumper all the way to Casa Grande during rush hour by 2035. The route currently carries around 60,000 vehicles daily, and that could quadruple depending on the region’s growth, according to an ADOT spokesperson. John Moffatt, director of economic development for Pima County, said those backups won’t just be bad for commuters. He said they will hurt trade with Mexico. “Trucks are like water. They find the path of least resistance...

    The Reno-Tahoe International Airport publicly apologized to Presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren after she was pursued by Trump supporters yesterday through airport. A video posted by the Nevada GOP on social media shows protesters following Warren as she went through the public area of the airport. Republican protesters were chastising her, calling her “Pocahontas.” The group said that it was protesting attempts to impeach President Trump as Warren once again visited Northern Nevada on her campaign. (Warren is a senator; the impeachment process to date has been led by House of Representatives speaker Nancy Pelosi.) Those actions violated airport rules, however,...

    Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., may have had what some are calling her "please clap" moment on Thursday when she got a not so favorable response to the question if America was "ready" for her to be president. Speaking at a town hall event in Reno, Nev., Harris told attendees she wanted to "engage in real talk" about the state of the 2020 race. "In this election, in the last couple- I mean, maybe couple of months, certainly a few weeks, there's this whole conversation that has been coming up about electability focused on our campaign," Harris said. "Is America ready...

It was the deadliest mass shooting in modern American history.

    Former Vice President Joe Biden said on Wednesday there was "zero, zero, zero evidence" behind President Trump's allegations regarding the 2020 candidate's behavior with Ukraine. Trump is claiming Biden used his influence as vice president to push Ukraine to fire a senior prosecutor who at one point had investigated an energy company where his son, Hunter, had served as a board member. "There is zero, zero, zero evidence of any assertion being made," Biden said at the 2020 Gun Safety Forum in Las Vegas. "Look, the issue is this President of the United States engaged in something apparently that is...

    Rep. Mark Amodei, Nevada’s only Republican House member, confirmed he does not support an “impeachment inquiry” into President Trump. He does support what every other member of the House and the Senate supports, a resolution that passed both the House and Senate unanimously with White House backing calling for the so-called “whistleblower complaint” to be transmitted to the relevant congressional committees. It passed the House 421-0. Amodei told Breitbart he has been misquoted by many in the national media who say that means he supports an “impeachment inquiry,” but that he does not support one. Several national media outlets raced...

    The lawmaker on Saturday parsed his words about supporting congressional oversight of a whistle-blower’s complaint against President Trump. Republican member of the House of Representatives spent Saturday clarifying his support for congressional oversight of a whistle-blower’s complaint against President Trump, which the lawmaker’s office contended was not the same as endorsing the impeachment inquiry being led by Democrats.The congressman, Mark Amodei, rejected the distinction that he was the first Republican House member to support the inquiry, with his spokeswoman, Logan Tucker, saying that the word “inquiry” gave the wrong impression that the congressman supported Mr. Trump’s impeachment.That could be problematic for Mr....

    Former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams will not run for president, according to media reports, and will instead focus on combating voter suppression, an issue that took center stage during her unsuccessful run last year. On Tuesday, Abrams announced her new initiative, called Fair Fight 2020, at the International Union of Painters and Allied Trades Convention in Las Vegas. The name is an offshoot of a group she started after her loss. A close aide familiar with the decision told The New York Times that Abrams will focus on the new program rather than run for office.

    Utah Republican Sen. Mitt Romney backstabbed President Donald Trump again this week and formed a political alliance with a top Democrat to go after the president. The Daily Beast reports that Romney held a secret meeting with former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid -- and they discussed how to get rid of Trump. While speaking with The Daily Beast, Reid lamented that he was "pretty damn worried" about Trump winning re-election in 2020. Reid has also reportedly been reaching out to certain congressional Republicans in an attempt to persuade them to publicly rebuke Trump. So it's not too surprising he...

    n a major win for the Trump administration, the Supreme Court issued an order late Wednesday ending all injunctions that had blocked the White House's ban on asylum for anyone trying to enter the U.S. by traveling through a third country, such as Mexico, without seeking protection there. The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals – long a liberal bastion that has been aggressively reshaped into a more moderate court by the Trump administration – handed the White House a partial victory in the case on Monday by ending the nationwide injunction. But the 9th Circuit kept the injunction alive within...
