One of the most popular articles ever published at American Thinker concerned civil rights attorney Leo Terrell. Bill Schanefelt wrote about what is a really "big deal": namely, the fact that black civil rights attorney Leo Terrell, a longtime Democrat supporter, announced during Mark Levin's Life, Liberty & Levin that he is throwing his support behind Donald Trump. The reason for Terrell's change of heart is he has realized that the Democrat party is not a friend to black Americans. Instead, it uses them.

The governors of Texas and California, the nation’s two most populous states, recently reimposed coronavirus lockdowns despite falling death rates and health-care capacity far beyond hospitalization rates. Numerous other governors have delayed reopenings or reversed them in similar situations. Lockdowns are not necessary to prevent coronavirus deaths, since the current capacity for treating cases is far above what is needed and people are going to get this disease until there’s a cure. Further, lockdowns accelerate systemic weaknesses such as our national debt, poor education, large numbers of working-age men who do not work, failure to pay for decades of overspending at both the national and state levels,

Regarding the aircraft carrier class, this agreement narrows as critics deride them as expensive (no argument) and dismiss them as mere floating targets in today's naval environment (not supportable with fact). Disagreements and studies about the size and mission of these ships have persisted for some 50 years, but each time, when weighing speed and endurance, payload, sea-keeping, survivability and combat effectiveness, a nuclear-powered ship of roughly 100,000 tons capable of handling ~75 aircraft is the answer.

The NFL's megaprofits dwarf those of other professional sports in the U.S. The Super Bowl, not the World Series, is America's national sports event.

But the integration unfortunately ceased, and the NFL didn't reintegrate until the mid-'40s, becoming one of the last sports leagues to embrace fully a racially-blind meritocracy.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo posted a picture of his dog Mercer, along with “all of her favorite toys,” on his personal Twitter account Tuesday. At the center of the photo was a Winnie the Pooh plush toy.The tweet attracted attention from Twitter users given that Winnie the Pooh has been commonly used as a derogatory nickname for Chinese President Xi Jinping, BBC News reported. (Tweet/Photo) Chinese censors banned images of Winnie the Pooh and references to the character after memes comparing Xi to the cartoon bear spread online back in 2013, according to the Guardian.

Considering how 2020 has gone, it's a shock to no one that the topic of school openings has become politicized, as everything else has. On one side, we have anti-Trump individuals and groups such as the Lincoln Project claiming, “Trump doesn’t care whether your kids live or die.” On the other, conservatives are loudly beating the drum about the importance of in-person learning. Trump himself has come out strongly in favor of opening schools come fall. This isn’t just politics; conservatives are the ones who tend to have children, and more of them, and thus, they understand the vital importance of in-person learning.

CNN clown Jim Acosta had an epic meltdown after President Trump blasted Joe Biden — a lifelong centrist — for veering to the far-left in order to pander to the radical, extremist fringe of the Democrat Party. Trump also called out Biden’s decades-long history of appeasing communist China. President Trump made the remarks during a press conference in the White House Rose Garden to announce an executive order rescinding Hong Kong’s special economic status after communist China seized control of the once-democratic city. At the event, Trump condemned the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) for oppressing the people of Hong Kong,

We have observed before the oddity that after having won the Democratic presidential nomination by promising to govern as a centrist, Joe Biden caved to the demands of the radical Left that he had just vanquished in the primary. We noted with interest when Biden decided to appoint Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a radical if ever there was one, as the co-chairwoman of his climate panel. Now, Biden is out with a revised climate plan that is far to the left of what he had proposed during the primary and much closer to the vision of Ocasio-Cortez’s extreme Green New Deal.

The aspirational nature of Trumpism gets short-shrift, but it’s critical. Trump told us he would make America great again.

Since the beginning of the 2020 campaign season, Donald Trump has been behind in almost every single poll. When there were 16 Democrats running, America was presented with polls showing that he’d lose to almost every single one of them — and now that the nominee is former Vice President Joe Biden, we are shown polls weekly that have Mr. Biden ahead by more than 10 points, as well as winning every battleground state. Those numbers seem not only illogical, but unbelievable — because they are — and the behavior of Democrats backs that up. Democrats are acting with the same grasping-for-straws panic that they have been since 2016.

People who listened to NPR shows on the radio at home before the pandemic by and large still do. But many of those who listened on their commute have not rejoined from home. And that threatens to alter the terrain for NPR for years to come, said Lori Kaplan, the network's senior director of audience insights.
