    In a stunning turn of events, Hugh Freeze has resigned from Ole Miss. The move comes after the school found at least one call from the coach to an escort service on his school-issued cell phone. Athletic director Ross Bjork said the initial phone call originally was “attributed to a misdial.” But further vetting of Freeze’s phone records disclosed a “pattern of conduct” that led the school administration to confront Freeze this week. Bjork said he and school administrators spoke to Freeze Wednesday night.
  • How a North Korean Missile Could Accidentally Trigger a U.S.-Russia Nuclear War

    You might have heard that North Korea launched an intercontinental ballistic missile this week. Well, not in Russia! The Russian government is stubbornly insisting that the missile launched by North Korea on Tuesday morning was merely a medium-range ballistic missile, capable of traveling no more than a thousand kilometers or so. That’s what the Russian mission to the United Nations Security Council said on Thursday, anyway.
  • (Arctic) Global Warming Study Canceled Because There’s Too Much Ice

    Irony so thick, you need a shovel for it and perhaps an ice ax. In May, an expedition that set out to gather global warming evidence in the Arctic was forced to call it off. Why? Because the ice was too thick and the icebreaker was needed to rescue other ships. So much for that whole ‘global warming’ thing. The research vessel Amundsen was redirected by the Canadian Coast Guard to clear fishing lanes for boats and supply vessels. That includes the dreaded ‘oil tankers’. “The Science Team of the Canadian Research Icebreaker CCGS Amundsen has canceled the first leg...

    On CNN, Peter Bergen stated that the terrorist bombings in Boston was "likely right-wing" extremists. Here's the quote: "One of the things that I'd be looking at, once the device, if it is a device, is found, what kind of explosives were used. If it, for instance, if it was hydrogen peroxide, sort of a signature of al Qaeda. If it was more conventional explosives, which are much harder to get hold of now, it might be some other kind of right wing extremists... "We've also seen other extremist groups, right wing groups, attacking, for instance, trying to attack the...

    CNN is reportedly implementing strict new rules for the network's stories regarding Russia. CNNMoney executive editor Rich Barbieri sent out an email Saturday regarding the network's new rules after the network a day earlier issued a retraction on one of its stories. "No one should publish any content involving Russia without coming to me and Jason [Farkas]," said the email, obtained by BuzzFeed News. "This applies to social, video, editorial, and MoneyStream. No exceptions," the email added. "I will lay out a workflow Monday." The new restrictions come after CNN on Friday retracted a story that connected Anthony Scaramucci, a prominent...

    A sordid story of hypocrisy and double standards. “A New York Times story about alleged Trump team contacts with Russian officials was “in the main not true.” (The New York Post quoting James Comey, 6/8.) Now over to the opposite end of the media’s political spectrum: "The assumption of the critics of the president, of his pursuers (especially the New York Times) …is that somewhere along the line in the last year the president had something to do with colluding with the Russians…and yet what came apart this morning was that theory," (Chris Matthews, MSNBC 6/8.) In brief, after last...

    A leading Democrat in the House and frequent critic of President Donald Trump made an embarrassing faux pas during CNN’s Erin Burnett “OutFront” show on Wednesday night. Rep. Jackie Speier, a California Democrat, showed a lack of knowledge about the presidency, the executive branch, and the FBI’s position within the federal government.

    Shortened title. Full title: Uh, What: Liberal Says Ohio State University Cop Rushed To Judgment When He Killed Suspected Terrorist On November 28, 18-year-old Ohio State University student Abdul Razak Ali Artan, a Somali refugee, used his car and a butcher’s knife to injure eight people. The terrorist group ISIS took responsibility for the attack. Artan’s brief reign of terror ended when OSU Officer Alan Horujko shot and killed him. Officer Horujko saved lives that day. He’s a hero, but some of the Left ran with the initial reported that Artan was armed with a firearm. It prompted former Clinton...

    Hillary Rodham Clinton’s email scandal didn’t stop the head of the CIA from using his own personal AOL account to stash work-related documents, according to a stoner high school student who claims to have hacked into them. CIA Director John Brennan’s private account held sensitive files — including his 47-page application for top-secret security clearance — until he recently learned that it had been infiltrated, the hacker told The Post. Other emails stored in Brennan’s non-government account contained the Social Security numbers and personal information of more than a dozen top American intelligence officials, as well as a government letter...

    OLLIE is in many ways a typical dog. She likes going for walks and chasing birds, and is especially fond of having her tummy rubbed. But in one respect, the Staffordshire Terrier differs radically from her canine peers: she has a burgeoning academic career, and sits on the editorial boards of seven medical journals. As you may have guessed, the journals on whose boards Ollie sits are of the predatory variety. These are shadowy, online publications that mimic legitimate journals, but are prepared to publish anything in exchange for a fee that can run into thousands of dollars. Predatory journals...
  • NANCY PELOSI NOW DAZED, HISSING IN PIG LATIN ABOUT LOSING TO TRUMP & WHO’S FAULT IT IS

    “Talk about Russia undermining our elections. They did it. Thisssss…ssss….” began Nancy Pelosi, and it went downhill from there. Speaking at the hilariously-named Peter J. Peterson financial summit this week, the House minority leader literally seemed to hiss about Russia – a scapegoat which Democrats are still frantically trying to pin their 2016 Presidential election loss on. But then, her embarrassment got worse. Pelosi appeared to believe the NRA – the National Rifle Association – is a department of intelligence in the Federal government. “The uh…director of the FBI or the DNI, the Director of National Intelligence, or the NRA….person...

    Reporters on Monday fell for a fake "White House" document that supposedly showed President Donald Trump making unusual demands of his Israeli hosts during his trip abroad. The Twitter account Rogue White House Senior Advisor on Friday shared what it claimed was Trump's demands ahead of a trip to Israel, including roughly a metric ton of sugary and non-kosher junk food. .. Some elements of the purported demands were obvious jokes. The demand that microwaves remain unplugged was a mocking reference to White House advisor Kellyanne Conway's bizarre comment that the appliance could be used for spying, and the request...

    For months since the election the only topic on the mainstream media (MSM) news outlets has been that President Trump somehow stole the election from Hillary Clinton by working in collusion with Russia. This fallacious argument is played around the clock by the MSM and discussed repeatedly ad nauseam by Democrats every chance they get. On Wednesday the headline of the Drudge Report was that Democrats felt they were finally at the place where they could poll test their efforts to impeach President Trump. Democrats can’t do anything without a poll. The Drudge Report’s headline linked to a report from...

    CINCINNATI -- The mayor of Cincinnati has tearfully apologized to city police after his office unwittingly approved a proclamation honoring a man suspected of killing an officer in an ambush. Mayor John Cranley delivered his apology Thursday at the police union hall, saying the proclamation was stamped by a new staffer. He said he also called the officer's widow to apologize. "This was a huge mistake," said Cranley. "It's not done intentionally. It's human error, but the buck stops with me."

    AMESBURY — A recent quality inspection of the $300 million John Greenleaf Whittier Bridge replacement project turned up evidence of substandard work – for the second time – that could push back the project’s estimated late summer/early fall completion date. The Massachusetts Department of Transportation began work to demolish the 62-year-old Interstate 95 bridge over the Merrimack River and replace it with separate northbound and southbound bridges in 2013. While the northbound bridge was completed in 2015, quality inspectors for MassDOT recently found that concrete poured for a pier cap on the southbound bridge by an unnamed contractor did not...
