Texas health officials have warned tens of thousands of cheerleaders that they may have been exposed to the mumps last month at a national competition in Dallas. After learning that someone with the illness had attended the National Cheerleaders Association All-Star National Championship, state health officials issued a warning about possible exposure. “Be alert for symptoms through March 22,” the Texas Department of State Health Services tweeted. In a letter, the agency noted that mumps “is a contagious viral illness.” A state health spokesman told The Washington Post that a person contagious with mumps had traveled from another state to the national championship,

Spiritual But Not Religious, Just Inane

NEW YORK—“I’m spiritual but not religious.” (Snip) Why do people say this? Yes, we know you’re spiritual. Everybody is spiritual. Mafia hitmen are spiritual. We’re all made up of body, soul, and spirit. So why are you telling me about it? Or maybe you mean “spiritual” in the sense of the old “Negro spirituals,” meaning songs about Jesus—but no, we have to rule that one out because that would probably require a choir, which would require a church, which would require something religious. But wait! There’s actually a Wikipedia entry called “Spirituality,” so maybe some spiritual-but-not-religious Ph.D.s from Jonathan Livingston

One of the ironies of the 21st century is that many people are too poor to be Woke. Some would if they could afford it. With nearly 85% of voters registered Democratic, San Francisco is arguably one of the bluest cities in America. But only a few people can afford to live there. "The California Association of Realtors (CAR) released its most recent Housing Affordability Index this week and estimated that only 12 percent of San Francisco households could afford a median-priced single family home in the city at the end of 2017, the worst rating in the state."

Sen. Brian Schatz (D-Hawaii) ripped Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan on Thursday after the minister posted an antisemitic tweet. "This is unacceptable in a progressive coalition or any political coalition. Antisemitism has no place in American society. We must reject this, left right and center," Schatz said. (Tweet) Schatz was responding to a tweet from Farrakhan posted on Wednesday in which the minister said, "the FBI has been the worst enemy of Black advancement. The Jews have control over those agencies of government." (Tweet) Farrakhan has come under fire in recent days for a speech given last month in

The narrative that the left has created about President Trump being a racist and the GOP as the home of David Duke can be flipped on its head and used to great electoral advantage, if only Republicans will take full advantage of the opportunity presented by revelations concerning deep ties of key Democrat officials with Louis Farrakhan. Farrakhan´s open and proud hatred of Jews was once again on display two weeks ago, when he delivered his "Saviours´ Day" address, condemning "Satanic Jews" (again). "Jews were responsible for all of this filth and degenerate behavior that Hollywood is putting out, turning

A Democrat seeking a U.S. House seat in Illinois – who attracted attention for a campaign ad showing him smoking pot – now faces accusations that he has abused women and misleadingly described himself as an “Iraq veteran" and "former FBI agent." Benjamin Thomas Wolf, who is running in the Democratic primary against incumbent U.S. Rep. Mike Quigley, came under fire after an ex-girlfriend alleged he acted abusively and intentionally revealed her name and home address on social media, a practice called “doxing.” “He actually hit me, threw me to the ground, put his foot on my chest.

U.S. Civil Rights Commissioners:
Obama-Era School Leniency Policy

Two members of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights say the Obama-era school leniency policy that discourages reports of threatening behavior by minority students to law enforcement is dangerous. “Many schools that have adopted lenient disciplinary policies – i.e., defining offenses down so that blacks and Hispanics aren’t suspended or expelled at significantly higher rates than whites and Asians—have seen marked increases in the number and severity of offenses,” attorney Peter Kirsanow, a Republican member of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, tells Breitbart News. “St. Paul is just one example, but numerous districts across the country have reported spikes

Oh, desperation, thy name is Robert Mueller! Or something like that. Going against all precedent to see a crime where there never was one, the special counsel is now pursuing the potential back channels Trump administration officials set up with the Russians in Seychelles shortly before he took office. According to a Washington Post report: Special counsel Robert Mueller has gathered evidence that a secret meeting in the Seychelles just before the inauguration of Donald Trump was an effort to establish a back channel between the incoming administration and the Kremlin – apparently contradicting statements made to lawmakers by one of its participants,

Students at Middlebury college woke up on February 28 to a jarring sight in their campus newspaper: a full-color photograph of Satan – or, since they don´t believe in stuff like that, controversial political scientist Charles Murray. Also displayed in the photo was Professor Allison Stanger. Murray and Stanger were walking out of a lecture the former had just given at Middlebury last year when the two were assaulted by some woke students. Stanger received a concussion and had to wear a neck brace. The editor of the newspaper was terrified that the mere sight of Murray would be a traumatic, triggering

Is Attorney General Jeff Sessions really standing in the way of a full investigation of wrongdoing by the FBI and Justice Department officials, abusing their offices to spy on the Trump campaign and presidency? (snip) Sessions has antagonized many conservatives, many of whom expect him to be fired by President Trump or else are outright demanding said firing. Last night, in an exclusive interview with Shannon Bream of Fox News, Sessions revealed that he already has appointed someone to investigate the allegations coming from the chairmen of the House Judiciary and Oversight and Government Reform Committees, Bob Goodlatte and Trey Gowdy,

Not long ago I waited for a flight to board. The plane took off 45 minutes late. There were only two attendants to accommodate 11 passengers who had requested wheelchair assistance. Such growing efforts to ensure that the physically challenged can easily fly are certainly welcome. But when our plane landed—late and in danger of causing many passengers to miss their connecting flights—most of the 11 wheelchair-bound passengers left their seats unassisted and hurried out. It was almost as if newfound concerns about making connections had somehow improved their health during the flight. Two passengers had boarded with two dogs each. No

Hollywood’s biggest night of the year turned into one of the smallest as viewers refused to watch a conga line of virtue-signaling celebrities preen about politics. According to the Los Angeles Times, fewer people watched the Oscars in 2018 than any other year: The audience for ABC´s Sunday annual telecast of the Oscars declined for a fourth consecutive year, according to Nielsen data, dropping to an all-time low of 26.5 million viewers. The dip of nearly 20% from last year put it under the previous low of 32 million in 2008. Yet, after the exploitative and propaganda-laced CNN town hall addressing the Parkland

The New Challenge to Obamacare
Reason, by Randy Barnett    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 3/8/2018 8:27:35 AM     Post Reply
Readers may be familiar with a new constitutional challenge by 20 state attorneys general to the Affordable Care Act, which Ilya blogged about here. Their argument, in a nutshell, is that with the amount of the penalty for failing to have health insurance now set to zero, the individual insurance "requirement"--AKA the "individual mandate"--can no longer be justified as a tax. This is so because one of the essential characteristics of a tax is that it raises at least some revenue for the government. For this reason, the "saving construction" employed by Chief Justice Roberts no longer applies, as it

A panel on MSNBC cheered the imminent demise of “old, kind of crusty” conservatives who support the Second Amendment and prevent young people from enacting gun control measures. Sunday on “AM Joy,” news anchor Joy Reid described conservatism as a “creepy, weird worldview” that “young people, who are a big, big cohort of the American population, do not share.” She asked her panel: “At some point, does the conservative media run out of viewers?” Kurt Bardella, a columnist for the Huffington Post, responded that there is “credence to the idea” that old conservatives, “through the process of evolution,” will “thankfully

The prevailing wisdom suggests that there will be a Democratic wave election in 2018. In a manner that suggests that little was learned from the 2016 primary or general elections, pundits and analysts seem so committed to this narrative that they promote it even when the data point in the other direction. The primaries in Texas on Tuesday are a good case in point. Early-voting numbers suggested good news for the Democrats: 465,245 voters took part in early voting for their primary, as compared to 420,329 for the Republicans’. This is a big gain for Democrats over their totals in the previous

Illegal Immigration: The Justice Department´s decision to sue California for violating the U.S. Constitution by obstructing federal immigration enforcement wasn´t made lightly. But given the enormous stakes involved it was necessary, and California deserves to lose, big time. "California, we have a problem," Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in a speech Wednesday. "Here´s my message — how dare you. How dare you needlessly endanger the lives of our law enforcement officers to promote a radical, open borders agenda." Bingo.

Big Government: Democrats have a new plan to win over voters in November. Instead of letting taxpayers keep the money they´re getting from Trump´s tax cuts, they want government to spend $1 trillion of it on wasteful government projects. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer outlined this plan on Wednesday, calling it a "better deal" for Americans. What it entails is "rolling back" $1 trillion worth of the Republican tax cuts that just went into effect, and spending that money on roads, bridges, schools, electric grid and so on. There are several problems with this approach, not least of which is that what Schumer

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. special counsel investigating possible Russian meddling in the 2016 election has gathered evidence that a secret meeting in the Seychelles in January 2017 was an attempt to set up a back-channel between the incoming Trump administration and the Kremlin, the Washington Post reported on Wednesday. Erik Prince, founder of military contractor Blackwater and a supporter of President Donald Trump, told U.S. lawmakers last year he had discussed U.S.-Russia relations during a meeting in the Seychelles with a Russian business executive with ties to the Kremlin. The Post, citing unidentified people familiar with the matter, said a

Hope Hicks told members of the House Intelligence Committee last week that one of her email accounts was hacked, it was reported Wednesday. President Trump’s former communications director was testifying in the committee’s Russia probe when she said she no longer has access to the email account, NBC News said. Hicks said there were two accounts she can no longer access: one she used during Trump’s campaign and another that was a personal account. It was not clear which account she claims has been hacked or when she realized the breach. Hicks told the committee that she was not tech-savvy, according to NBC.

In May 2011, a woman contacted the Portland Police Bureau to make an allegation against Mark Cuban, the billionaire owner of the Dallas Mavericks basketball team and one of the most visible figures in entertainment and sports. Her complaint? That Cuban had sexually assaulted her late one night at an Old Town nightclub. The woman told police she encountered Cuban in late April at the Barrel Room, at 105 NW 3rd Ave., and asked him to pose with her for a photograph. While they smiled for the camera, she claimed, he thrust his hand down the back of her jeans

California’s water regulation agency approved new measures Tuesday that will allow recycled water – water that once ran through the sewers – to be added to the state’s reservoirs, The San Francisco Chronicle reported. The new rules are expected to be implemented by 2023. "This is a type of indirect potable use — it´s not treated recycle water that goes directly to someone´s house," said Miryam Barajas at the Water Board. "It´s highly treated." She says the new regulations could potentially affect all 36 of California’s reservoirs that serve as the main source of the state’s municipal drinking water. The

My brother expressed his disgust watching an animated TV show trashing Trump, titled Our Cartoon President. Incredibly, leftists have hijacked the airwaves and everywhere people gather to exploit as platforms to spread their vitriolic, insane hatred for Trump. Outrageously, TV coverage of the Olympics included leftist hatred for the Trump administration. Despite the shocking discovery that leftist policies probably played a role in the deaths of 17 kids in the Florida school shooting, leftists continue puppet-mastering students to blame Trump. Even Sunday worship has been hijacked by leftists to trash Trump. My brother asked the pastor of his all black
