Obama Administration Slams Conservative School As Not A Real College

An Obama administration representative took a shot at a well-known conservative college Thursday, saying the school wasn’t included on its much-heralded new “College Scorecard” because it isn’t a real two-to-four year college. Hillsdale College, a 1,500-student liberal arts college in Michigan, is ranked by U.S. News and World Reports as the 67th-best national liberal arts college in the country. The college is well-known for the conservative identity of its student body and its focus Read more […]

Lawmakers May Finally Punish A University For Being Too Politically Correct

Lawmakers in Tennessee are promising to bring the state’s flagship college to heel after it grabbed headlines for telling students to use more “gender-neutral pronouns.” The hoopla started at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville (UT) when the school’s Pride Center director Donna Braquet posted an online guide on what pronouns to use to refer to people. The guide noted that some people, rather than going by “he” or “she,” may prefer to go by one of “dozens” of gender-neutral Read more […]

Obama Gets Critical Vote On Iran Deal

The Iranian nuclear deal took a critical step towards passage Wednesday, as Democratic Sen. Barbara Mikulski announced her support for the deal. Mikulski is the thirty-fourth senator to endorse the deal.

If the resolution were successfully passed, it would weaken the Iran deal by removing Obama’s ability to temporarily end sanctions on Read more […]

Northeastern University Teaches Students That Whites Can’t Be Oppressed

An instructional guide apparently in use at Northeastern University in Boston is teaching the school’s residential assistants that it is impossible for white people or men to be oppressed. “In order to have the experience of being oppressed one must belong to an oppressed category,” the guide, titled “The Umbrella of Oppression,” says. “Men cannot be oppressed as men, just as whites cannot be oppressed as whites.” The guide was posted to the university’s Resident Assistant Read more […]

State Lawmaker Planned Sodomy Propaganda To Cover Up Actual Adultery

A state representative in Michigan appears to have been caught plotting to falsely accuse himself of using a sodomite male escort … all in order to distract from his actual heterosexual affair. The whole sordid saga comes from recordings released Friday by The Detroit News.

NY Times Helps Planned Parenthood By Muddling Facts on Baby Parts Trafficking

The New York Times has recently put its full editorial weight behind Planned Parenthood, releasing an editorial decrying the “campaign of deception” launched by the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) and other actors in the anti-abortion movement. But in pushing to defend Planned Parenthood, the Times appears to be getting at least one key fact wrong.

Federal Court Rules Pro-Life Views Are ‘Patently Offensive’

A new decision by the Second Circuit Court of Appeals holds that New York’s state government has the right to ban “Choose Life” license plates on the grounds that such a statement is “patently offensive.” The dispute stems from a now-suspended program offered by New York’s Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) which allowed private organizations to create custom license plates.

Are States Using Test Scores To Lie To Parents?

New research from an education advocacy group argues there is a pervasive “honesty gap” across the country in which state officials use overly-easy standardized tests to conceal from parents the true academic performance of their children. The report, titled ‘Proficient v. Prepared’ and showcased at the companion website HonestyGap.org, was created by Achieve, an education non-profit that promotes increasing education standards. The report compares state standardized test results in reading Read more […]
