  • Caitlin Clark Shamed for Being ‘White, Straight, and From Iowa’

    Honestly, I'd never even heard of Caitlin Clark until more than a month ago when I was visiting my childhood home and wound up watching the LSU-Iowa game with my father. During the game — the first college basketball game I'd watched ever — my dad pointed out Caitlin Clark and praised her as a star player who'd broken all sorts of records and was bound for the WNBA. Sure enough, he was right, and now it seems I hear about Caitlin Clark all the time — including the controversy of her five-figure salary at the WNBA, which pales in...

    The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) has issued a stern warning to the state of Iowa: halt the enforcement of a controversial new immigration law, or face a federal lawsuit. This legal showdown is poised over Iowa’s recent enactment of Senate File 2340, which criminalizes “illegal reentry” into the state by undocumented immigrants—a move the DOJ deems a violation of the Constitution. … Governor Reynolds has defended the law, Iowa needed the law because of the Biden administration’s poor record on immigration. “The only reason we had to pass this law is because the Biden administration refuses to enforce the...

    If arrested and convicted under the new law, a judge can have the individual deported back to their home country. But if the person is not deported, they could be sentenced to two years in prison if its classified as a misdemeanor, or up to 10 years if its a felony and they have been arrested before. The Justice Department warned Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds, a Republican, on Thursday that it would sue the state if it enforces an immigration law that bans migrants from being in the state if they have an outstanding deportation order, or if they were...

    In a YouGov survey of 1,795 adult citizens conducted between Apr. 6 and Apr. 9, Iger is at -9 net, with 15% viewing him favorably and 24% unfavorably. Meanwhile, DeSantis is better known, but at least for some respondents, familiarity breeds contempt. The second-term Republican stands at -13 net; 34% view him favorably, with 47% regarding him unfavorably. DeSantis is in negative territory with most age, gender and racial cohorts, with only respondents 65 years of age and older regarding him favorably, albeit by a slender 48% to 44% spread.

    Prior to Monday night's game between Iowa and LSU, there were plenty of people who already respected Caitlin Clark's game. Boston Celtics legend Paul Pierce, however, needed to see Clark dismantle LSU's star-studded to truly admire her skillset and talent. Unfortunately, Pierce's commentary about Clark on FS1's "Undisputed" wasn't well articulated. "We saw a white girl in Iowa do it to a bunch of Black girls," Pierce said. "That gained my respect. That gained my respect. She didn't beat other white girls from Colorado or wherever. She did it to LSU, who we thought were some dogs. She put them...

    Positioned all by herself at the free-throw line, Caitlin Clark with her foul shots made her way to the top of the NCAA Division 1 scoring board. Her team, No. 6 Iowa, won against No. 2 Ohio State with a score of 93-83, all thanks to her two free throws on a technical penalty. Clark undoubtedly surpassed the previous 54-year-old record held by Pete Maravich. Clark needed to score eighteen points to beat Maravich’s record of 3,667 points, which the player accumulated in a total of 83 games. She made history by gaining 3,685 points in her 130 games. Caitlin...

    American Thinker ^ | February 26, 2024 | Mark Hewitt
    There is a little craziness happening in Iowa and with University of Iowa basketball star, Caitlin Clark. She just set the NCAA all-time women’s scoring record and can make even more history this season by passing Hall of Famer Pete Maravich of LSU for the all-time NCAA scoring record set in 1970. With two games remaining in the season, Miss Clark averaging ~30 points a game and just needs 51 points to break Pistol Pete’s record that he set during his three seasons in Baton Rouge. But the leftist media’s treatment of Caitlin Clark shows just how corrupt the compromised...

    Caitlin Clark had no specific plan for how she hoped to break the NCAA women's basketball scoring record Thursday. But after doing so while also setting the Iowa Hawkeyes' single-game scoring record, Clark had to grin. "You all knew I was going to shoot a logo 3 for the record," said Clark, who now has 3,569 career points, 49 of them coming Thursday. And indeed, every aspect of the night seemed storybook perfect for the senior star. (Snip) She was far from done, though. Clark went 8-of-10 from the field -- 5-of-7 from 3-point range -- in the first quarter,...

    A fertilizer spill into the Nishnabotna River containing 1,500 tons of a liquid nitrogen solution is annihilating the aquatic wildlife in the river, including the portion in Missouri. According to Ecological Health Unit Science Supervisor with the Missouri Department of Conservation Matt Combes, the spill has affected 60 miles of the Nishnabotna River, including the 10 miles in Missouri. Combes said the spill has led to a near total fish kill, with an estimated 40,000 fish dying in the Missouri portion. "That included catfish of the size that anglers like to catch and shovelnose sturgeon... and blue suckers and other...

    Penn State wrestling has done it again. Cael Sanderson and the Nittany Lions secured the program’s 11th NCAA championship since Sanderson was hired in 2009 and Penn State’s 12th NCAA championship overall. The program’s first title came in 1953 and, under Sanderson as coach, Penn State has become one of the top dynasties in sports. The Nittany Lions, winners of the Big Ten championship and the Big Ten regular-season crown, entered T Mobile Center in Kansas City as the heavy favorites to secure a third consecutive team title and, while the three-day event concludes Saturday night, PSU has already blown...
