    World Baseball Classic ^ | March 23, 2017 | Doug Miller
    The stars of American baseball have finally earned their World Baseball Classic stripes. The United States got a brilliant pitching performance from starter and WBC 2017 MVP Marcus Stroman and enough offense from its All-Star-packed lineup of Major League luminaries to beat Puerto Rico, 8-0, in the championship game of the 2017 Classic on Wednesday night at Dodger Stadium. After three World Baseball Classics dating back to the inaugural tournament in 2006 in which Team USA never made it past the semifinals, the Americans won their first title in decisive style in front of a raucous, bipartisan crowd of 51,565...

    World Baseball Classic ^ | March 21, 2017 | Doug Miller
    Throughout their first three World Baseball Classics, the United States' burly batting order had some of the most prodigious sluggers in the Major Leagues, but that never got the Americans to the tournament's final game. So naturally that changed in a dramatic 2-1 semifinal victory over two-time Classic winner Japan on a wet, chilly Tuesday night at Dodger Stadium, courtesy of a regular old ground ball. With the score tied at 1 in the top of the eighth, Adam Jones' fielder's-choice RBI grounder was bobbled by Japan third baseman Nobuhiro Matsuda long enough to allow Brandon Crawford to score from...

The restrictions affect 14 airlines, six of which are based in the U.K. As in the U.S., the ban covers any electronic devices larger than a typical smartphone.

According to Fox News, Kid Rock released a statement coinciding with the introduction of the grills, saying, “I’m not gonna lie. It is more expensive to make things in America. But it’s important to me. I love America, and I want to do all I can to create manufacturing jobs at home.”

    Mariners left-hander Drew Smyly started the United States' 4-2 victory against Venezuela on Wednesday night, and he was dominant. The 27-year-old struck out eight and walked none in 4 2/3 innings in the Pool F opener of the World Baseball Classic. The last six outs Smyly recorded were strikeouts before he gave way to Rangers closer Sam Dyson. Smyly's final pitch, a fastball to strike out Carlos Gonzalez, was clocked at 94.4 mph. Smyly had never thrown a pitch that exceeded 93.96 mph (on April 24, 2015) in the Statcast™ era. Smyly gave up one run, but it was unearned....

    Throw out all the tiebreaker scenarios. Team USA is moving on. The Americans' mission was clear after the Dominican Republic outlasted Colombia, 9-3, in extra innings: Win and get in to Round 2 of the World Baseball Classic. A focused Team USA squad did just that by defeating Team Canada, 8-0, on Sunday at Marlins Park in Miami to punch its ticket to the second round in San Diego. The victory left the Americans with a 2-1 record in Pool C, good enough to claim a Pool F matchup against the Pool D runner-up Wednesday at 9 pm. ET (6...

    The Dominican Republic got one step closer to punching its ticket to the second round of the World Baseball Classic on Saturday, besting the United States in a clash of two Pool C titans. With back-to-back home runs from Nelson Cruz and Starling Marte in the eighth inning, the Dominican Republic stormed back from a five-run deficit and improved to 2-0 in the tournament with a 7-5 win in Miami. The game was played before a raucous, sold-out crowd of 37,446, establishing a new record for Marlins Park. The ballpark's previous high was 37,116 on Opening Day in 2014. The...

    Adam Jones hit a two-out RBI single in the 10th inning to give the United States a 3-2, walk-off win over Colombia in the 2017 World Baseball Classic at Marlins Park in Miami. Christian Yelich and Brandon Crawford walked with one out in the 10th inning against Guillermo Moscoso, then the Baltimore Orioles center fielder ended the game with a single to center to score Yelich. Chicago White Sox ace Jose Quintana was brilliant, taking a no-hitter into the sixth inning, but got nothing to show for it. Quintana had a no-hitter until Crawford singled to right field, snapping a...

    President Trump’s new executive order will have the U.S. housing less refugees here than under the previous administration. But while you have politicians and pundits the world over screaming that we need to resettle more Middle Eastern refugees in America, they never talk about the ridiculous cost of shipping refugees half way around the world to resettle them. An analysis from the Center for Immigration Studies has shown that resettling a single Middle Eastern refugee in the United States costs taxpayers approximately $64,370 for five years — that is a whopping 12 times more than what it would cost to...

Due to the greatest lack of prayer and lack of regard for the holy Laws of God today, we have given great influence to the “powers of evil” (CCC 409) to be able do deceive us!

The environmental and labor side agreements negotiated by our administration will make this agreement a force for social progress as well as economic growth.” Twenty-three years later, scholars and policy makers often disagree about the impact that NAFTA has had on economic growth and job generation in the U.S. That impact, they say, is not always...

    Smuggling illicit drugs across the U.S border is a lucrative business. From hiding hundreds of pounds of cocaine or marijuana in vehicles, funneling it through tunnels under fenced areas or shipping it across the Florida coastline, drug dealers based in countries like Mexico and Cuba are pretty inventive in finding ways to get their contraband past border agents and into the United States. So inventive, in fact, that U.S. Customs and Border Protection reported that over the weekend, drug smugglers in Mexico used an air cannon to launch a pile of weed across the border into the U.S. According to...

    America is the world's largest Christian nation. Russia is the largest Christian nation of Europe, and is the largest European nation (population of 143 million). The policies of the current administration are putting America at risk of war with Russia. The cold war is over. The interests that America and Russia share in common as Christian nations, is more important than what divides them. Russia has done more than America in fighting ISIS, and defending the interests of Christians in the Middle East. In response, they have been hated by anti-Christian elites in America, who want war with Russia.
