    NORWICH, Conn. – American millennials with budget constraints are breaking out of their pandemic coops to find affordable dream homes in far-flung places. For funeral home director Kate Reinhart, from Utah, that dream is an octagonal Victorian that recalls the macabre Addams Family mansion seen in cartoons, films and a TV series. Her scientist husband Cameron found his first job near Norwich, Connecticut, a town with one of the largest concentrations of 18th- and early 19th-century houses in New England. For just $85,000 couple bought the 1885 house replete with stained glass, artisanal light fixtures and winding banisters. They plan...
  • Leftists Want ‘The Next Ted Cruz Or Josh Hawley’ Exiled From Name-Brand Universities

    The American gentry seeks to squash conservatism, the free speech ethos of the university system, and intellectual diversity in our country. An article titled “Instructing Insurrections: How UChicago Can Avoid Creating the Next Ted Cruz” was published on Sunday in “The Chicago Maroon,” a nearly 130-year-old left-wing student newspaper at the University of Chicago. Replete with obnoxious Ivy League elitism, the article reads like an instruction guide on how to undermine the university’s renowned “Chicago Principles,” which guarantee free speech and open discourse on campus, and how to gaslight conservative students in the classroom. It is also a direct attack...

  • NBC Opinion: GOP senators at Trump's impeachment trial are dooming the party. They need to repudiate him.

    NBC News / Comcast ^ | January 27, 2021 | By Sarah Longwell, Republicans for the Rule of Law
    What were Senate Republicans voting on Tuesday when they opposed the impeachment trial of Donald Trump? Not whether Trump stays in office — he's already left. Not how he's remembered by history — 400,000 dead from the coronavirus have already decided that question. Instead, the fate they were deciding was their own. Sadly, most showed they still aren't ready to begin reclaiming the party from the conspiracists. Just five GOP senators joined Democrats to vote down Republican Sen. Rand Paul's motion that the impeachment proceedings were unconstitutional because Trump's term has finished. At least 17 Republicans will have to join...
  • USA Today Demands High Schools Change Racially Insensitive Nicknames

    01/03/2021 7:07:31 AM PST · by rktman · 80 replies ^ | 1/1/2021 | Jay Maxson
    USA Today is on the warpath against high schools with so-called racially insensitive nicknames. In separate stories, USA Today pressured Red Mesa High School in Arizona to drop “Redskins” and Robstown Early College High School in Texas to replace the nickname “Cotton Pickers.” There’s a big catch to these stories. Red Mesa is a predominantly Navajo school located on the Navajo Reservation. Located near the U.S.-Mexico border, Robstown is 94 percent Hispanic or Latino. Minorities quoted in the two stories are proud of their schools’ respective nicknames and resist politically correct efforts to erase them.

    It’s the weekend between Black Friday and Cyber Monday. That means it’s time for my annual “Best Christmas Adverts” Sunday.The last few seasons we’ve enjoyed the antics of the Heathrow Bears but they were retired last year in a move that now seems prescient as air travel has been pretty much locked down along with thousands of other everyday things thanks to the Wuhan Murder Virus. Thanks China, you godless, amoral tyrants.In my search for a worthy candidate for this year’s tribute I’ve sadly concluded that Madison Avenue has lost its way; Americans just aren’t that good at Christmas ads...

    An NBCLX analysis of early voting reports through Oct. 27 indicates only 13% of voting-age Americans under the age of 30 have cast ballots so far, and only 19% of those between the ages of 30 and 39. Comparatively, approximately 47% of all Americans 65 and older have cast ballots with a full week of voting left to go.

    ....It’s no secret that the ruling class in America despises the country class. If you’re one of those people who don’t live in coastal cities and subscribe to the same worldview as the elite aspirants hoping for a job at a billionaire-backed NGO or an internship that might lead to a job at McKinsey then you’re a deplorable, a CHUD, and definitely racist and whatever bad things are happening to you, your family, and your inland town are your just deserts. One of Trump’s main functions and biggest appeals is that he exposes the occupational elites that are credentialed but...
  • Nearly 20 percent of millennials, Gen Z in NY believe Jews caused the Holocaust: survey

    Nearly 20 percent of millennials and Gen Z in New York believe Jews caused the Holocaust, according to a new survey released Wednesday. The findings come from the first-ever 50-state survey on the Holocaust knowledge of American millennials and Gen Z, which was commissioned by the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany. For instance, although there were more than 40,000 camps and ghettos during World War II, 58 percent of respondents in New York cannot name a single one. Additionally, 60 percent of respondents in New York do not know that 6 million Jews were killed during the Holocaust....

    On August 27, 2019, President Donald Trump held a 41.3 percent approval rating and a 54.2 percent disapproval rating, according to FiveThirtyEight’s poll tracker. During the 365 days that followed, Trump became the third president impeached by the House of Representatives; America assassinated Iranian general Qassem Soleimani; more than 200,000 Americans died from the disease caused by the novel coronavirus; the unemployment rate rose from 3.7 percent to 10.2 percent; the US banned incoming travel from Europe, China, and Brazil; an estimated 12 million people lost health insurance coverage; Trump pardoned Roger Stone, who was facing jail time for dirty...

    Betsy Sweeny (left) snagged a rundown Victorian home (right) in West Virginia, which she learned about from the Instagram account Cheap Old Houses, for a mind-blowing $18,500. Betsy Sweeny =============================================================================== It was not love at first sight. After Buffalo, New York, couple Nick Weith and Damian Mordecai spotted a grand Victorian-style home on a popular Instagram account called Cheap Old Houses, they drove an hour south to a village called Gowanda (population 2,700) to tour the historic property. Initially, Mordecai, a 39-year-old nonprofit executive, was “less enthused” about the idea of living so far outside the city. But the...
  • The Left Has Turned White Millennial Women Into Violent Hoods

    RUSH: I mentioned moments ago — and I’ve made a point of mentioning — that the segment of the American population that’s gone to the dark side and joined the pro-communist Antifa and Black Lives Matter is primarily Millennial, college-educated white women. Now, they don’t have to be college educated. But Millennial-aged white women are the largest group of Americans that are joining these far-left, radical protest groups. These women have been taught the most confusing things and messages. They’ve been taught to hate men. They’ve been taught that they can’t get a fair shake in America. They’ve been taught...

    Joseph R. Biden Jr. has taken a commanding lead over President Trump in the 2020 race, building a wide advantage among women and nonwhite voters and making deep inroads with some traditionally Republican-leaning groups that have shifted away from Mr. Trump following his ineffective response to the coronavirus pandemic, according to a new national poll of registered voters by The New York Times and Siena College. Mr. Biden is currently ahead of Mr. Trump by 14 percentage points, garnering 50 percent of the vote compared with 36 percent for Mr. Trump. That is among the most dismal showings of Mr....

    A great crisis in 2008, followed by an even greater one in 2020, as an "authoritarian, severe, unyielding" leader from the baby boomer generation resists a historic moment of change afoot in the US. Would you believe this was all predicted almost 25 years ago? In a book championed at the highest levels of the Trump administration, no less? Oh, and it was also written by the guys who invented the term "millennial." It was all prophesied in 1997 in Neil Howe and William Strauss' "The Fourth Turning," and, depending on who you ask, it was either a breakthrough in...

    The black-clothed Antifa activists who are leading the anti-police riots are mostly the discarded, angry college-grade workforce of an increasingly high-tech, globalized economy, say a variety of experts and millennials. Colleges are producing many “graduates who’ve absorbed a worldview that trains them for “metropolitan elite” job types that turn out to be far scarcer than the graduates competing for them,” writes Mary Harrington, a young writer at She continues: The result is a frustrated would-be middle class, treading water in what the writer Venkatesh Rao has called ‘premium mediocre’ lifestyles, a rented simulacrum of a genuinely prosperous existence designed...

    Believe it or not, thereÂ’s something better than a grande Starbucks Frappuccino, an iPhone, or an afternoon reading a good book. As COVID-19 cases continue declining in many states, new threats are emerging: Alongside growing unemployment rates and an increase in depression, births are declining. According to provisional figures from the Centers for Disease Control and PreventionÂ’s National Center for Health Statistics, births in America are down to their lowest number in 35 years.Nearly 4 million babies were born in the U.S. last year, but that was still a 1 percent birth decrease and 2 percent fertility decrease from 2017....

    Matthew Henderson couldn’t be entering the job market at a worse time. As a senior at Loyola University, he spent the spring semester interning as a trade policy analyst at the British Consulate in Chicago. But his chances of turning that opportunity into a permanent job after graduation ran headlong into the coronavirus pandemic. Now Mr. Henderson is at home with his family in South Bend, Ind., unemployed and considering jobs at Costco and Target to help pay off $24,000 in student loans. “I’m in this bubble of anxiety,” said Mr. Henderson, who just turned 21. “I have to pay...

    The pandemic has stripped millions of work, community, and hope. As local governments extend quarantine orders, urbanites like me are starting to wonder: what is the point of city life? This week marks just over two months since most states instituted shelter-in-place orders to contain COVID-19, and with this milestone came an apparent turn in the tide of public opinion—or at least, public behavior—on social distancing.Even as Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease and one of President Trump’s most prominent pandemic advisors, warned against rolling back lockdown orders in his testimony to Congress...

    WASHINGTON — Joe Biden is in no danger of losing young voters to President Donald Trump. But he faces a lack of enthusiasm among Millennials and Gen Z voters with the potential to decide his fate if they stay home or vote for a third-party candidate. Many of these voters preferred Bernie Sanders in the Democratic primary and perceive Biden as a blank slate. They aren’t sure that he’s a change agent or that his policies match the scale of their problems. Some worry about his age and fitness. Most seem open to supporting Biden to stop Trump but need...
