    SPARTANBURG, SC (WSPA) – The Atlantic Coast Conderence (ACC) has announced they will be moving championship games out of North Carolina, because of House Bill 2. All 15 university will continue to host ACC Championships at campus sites. Clemson University President James Clements says, “The decision to move the neutral site championships out of North Carolina while HB 2 remains the law was not an easy one but it is consistent with the shared values of inclusion and non-discrimination at all of our institutions.” They say the locations will be announced in the future. The NCAA said on Monday that...

    White and Christian voters are abandoning the Democratic Party, according to a remarkable new analysis of political party demographics. The Pew Research Center found that there is now a 29-point white gap, the largest ever between the GOP and Democrats. According to the new analysis, "non-Hispanic whites make up 57 percent of all Democratic and Democratic-leaning registered voters, down significantly from 76 percent in 1992. By contrast, though the share of GOP voters who are white also has declined since 1992, the change has been much more modest: Currently, 86 percent of Republican and Republican-leaning registered voters are non-Hispanic whites,...

    The ACC has decided to move all of its neutral site championships from the state of North Carolina, the conference announced in a statement Wednesday. “The ACC Council of Presidents made it clear that the core values of this league are of the utmost importance, and the opposition to any form of discrimination is paramount,” commissioner John Swofford said. “Today’s decision is one of principle, and while this decision is the right one, we recognize there will be individuals and communities that are supportive of our values as well as our championship sites that will be negatively affected. Hopefully, there...

    Actress and comedian Amy Schumer is the latest celebrity to say she'll be leaving the United States if Donald Trump is elected president this November.Unlike her pal Lena Dunham and many other celebrities who threatened to move to Canada if Trump is elected, Schumer is eschewing the traditional locale for disgruntled American expats. She will be learning Spanish and moving to Spain ("or somewhere") following a Trump victory. "My act will change because I'll need to learn to speak Spanish because I will move to Spain, or somewhere. It's beyond my comprehension if Trump won. It's too crazy," she said....

    Already this week, a letter from 50 respected Republican foreign-policy gurus announced that they would not support Donald Trump; Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) wrote an op-ed declaring that she would not vote for Trump; and Trump once again roiled the race when he told a packed rally: “By the way, and if [Hillary Clinton] gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do, folks. The Second Amendment people, maybe there is, I don’t know. But I’ll tell you what, that will be a horrible day.” The Clinton team, not surprisingly, took this as an invitation to commit violence.

In an op-ed published online Monday night in The Washington Post, Ms. Collins said it was “not a decision I make lightly, for I am a lifelong Republican.” The column outlined a series of common criticisms of Mr. Trump’s conduct and temperament — mocking a reporter with disabilities, feuding wioth a Muslim Gold Star family, suggesting a Mexican-American judge might not be impartial.

    In the past five years ESPN has lost 11,346,000 subscribers according to Nielsen data. If you combine that with ESPN2 and ESPNU subscriber losses this means that ESPN has lost over a billion dollars in cable and satellite revenue just in the past five years, an average of $200 million each year. That total of a billion dollars hits ESPN in the pocketbook not just on a yearly basis, but for every year going forward. It's gone forever. That's not just bad, this is downright cataclysmic. And it's getting worse. In the past year ESPN lost 4.159 million subscribers, that's...

To vote for either Trump or Hillary Clinton is to give his approval to genuine evil and "darkness," Beck said, and so unless God tells him otherwise, he cannot vote for Trump. "We have to do what we feel the Lord would want us to do," Beck explained. "All I'm looking for now is to be seen in...

    I believe Mr. Will has a genuine distaste for what may become Trump Conservatism. Trump represents a kind of happy warrior style of American politician, similar to Harry Truman and Rough Rider Teddy Roosevelt. It's obviously too low-class for Will, Romney and Jeb Bush, who are all too delicate for the political blood sport that the Left has imposed on our politics. Nothing is too low for the Left. Literally nothing. The national GOP has been in decline for years, running decrepit candidates like Bob Dole, John McCain, and Mitt Romney -- who actually did flinch in the last debate...

    Not only would Donald Trump not mind if certain celebrities were to flee the United States if he is elected president, the Republican front-runner said Tuesday that their opposition to his candidacy only increases his will to win. During a telephone interview with "Fox & Friends," Trump was asked about a tweet from Lena Dunham on Monday in which she vowed to leave the U.S. for Vancouver if he is elected. Trump's response: "Well, she's a B-actor. You know, she has no — you know, no mojo."

And there are about over 100 people who that rely on me. People who have kids and mortgages and homes. I can’t selfishly pack up and leave. But my wife and I discussed last night Dana that we are going to leave. I wouldn’t pay a 10% state tax in Florida or Texas. I would save...

    “Now I want to tell you something – I was born and raised in New York,” Hannity said. “I want you to know that and I can’t wait to get out of here. I really can’t. I don’t want to pay their 10-percent state tax anymore. I live in the second-highest property taxed county in the entire country in Nassau County. I can’t wait to sell my house to somebody who wants it. I can’t wait to pay no state income tax down in Florida or Texas. I haven’t decided yet, but I’m leaning Florida because I like the water...

    Erie Catholic Bishop Lawrence Persico said that Saint Vincent Health System can no longer be considered a Catholic hospital after its merger with Highmark Inc. However, the bishop did say that Catholics could still use services provided by Saint Vincent. In a statement released Sunday, Persico also thanked the Sisters of St. Joseph of Northwestern Pennsylvania for their 138 years of health-care ministry. The sisters founded the hospital in 1875 and will no longer be its sponsor after the merger, which was expected to take place early this month. "With this change in ownership, there is no longer any guarantee...

    For the Rev. Ernest Easley, the decision to cut ties with the Boy Scouts was simple. The Bible says homosexuality is a sin. The Boy Scouts do not. “We are not willing to compromise God’s word,” said Easley, pastor of the 2,300-member Roswell Street Baptist Church in Marietta, Ga., which has sponsored Boy Scout Troop 204 since 1945. Easley, chairman of the Southern Baptist Convention’s executive committee, said his church will shut down its troop at end of the year because of a recently adopted policy to allow openly gay scouts. He’s urging other Baptists to do the same. Roswell...

    Last week, the Boy Scouts of America made its landmark decision allowing gay Scouts to be members (but not adult leaders), and while many liberal organizations are pleased, America’s largest Protestant church organization seems poised to cut off ties with the Boy Scouts in protest. More than 70 percent of Boy Scout troops across the country are sponsored by religious organizations. Many sponsorships come from the Southern Baptist Convention, America’s largest Protestant denomination with more than 47,000 churches. Now, Frank Page, president of the SBC's executive committee, says it’s time for its congregations to cut all ties with the Boy...
