Austin, Texas The University of Texas' long-awaited report on “The Eyes of Texas” has found that the school song has “no racist intent," but the school president said athletes and band members will not be required to sing or participate when the song is played at games and campus events. The 58-page report, released Tuesday, was commissioned last year by school President Jay Hartzell after a group of Texas athletes, most notably football players, demanded the school drop the song as part of racial injustice protests. The issue erupted into a tempest of fan outrage when football players chose to leave the field instead of

This reminds me of an environmental lawsuit against an electric utility about 40 years ago. The environmental group maintained that even if community residents maintained an unfounded fear of power lines, that should be sufficient to require the utility to reroute them. Fortunately, the court disagreed, but the same kind of thinking persists on the left.

Expect "White Christmas" to be cancelled if this madness continues. Projection of what others are thinking is a very dangerous thing to allow unchallenged.

The only Racist thing about this entire event were the actions of the Texas Athletes. They had to conjure up a lot of racist thoughts that only existed in their minds. So basically the football team needs to be disbanded for racism.

Silliness to the nth degree. Don’t they realize that instead of unifying the country, they are drawing very strong red lines between the 13% minority and the rest of us. And they are on the wrong side. We are fed up.

How about "You were given the opportunity to attend this prestigious university (which thousands are turned away from every year), you may even have gotten a scholarship, so you will play or sing the school song or you will be out on your butt!!!!". Hey, I can dream!!!

I personally took a class at the University of Texas under Professor Emeritus Joe Franz who had several Graduate students write thesis on the history of the Institution. I have a copy of one that gives the date, time, place and singer for the first performance of the Eyes Of Texas. It was a student talent show and the performers were not dressed in black face. Some are actually arguing that the tune "I've Been Working on the Railroad" was performed at minstrel shows. So, because the tune was occasionally performed by performers in black face, on subsequent performance of a variation is racist. Uhm, sorry. No.

This is how not to handle students, or rather, children. The University of Texas had severely diminished itself. Their Board or Regents should promptly fire President Jay Hartzell and clarify their position on the privilege of playing football at their school. Play by our rules, respect our school, or play for someone else.

It has no racist intentions. We didn't need a stinkin' report to tell us that, either. Thanks, American Pravda, though -- for deigning to tell us something we already knew. Because the sun wouldn't rise tomorrow if you didn't declare it.

This is an easy one! The football coach should bench or remove from the team any player who doesn't stand on the field for the ritual singing of "Eyes of Texas", and all band members who refuse to play it should be removed from the band. These actions should take place immediately - no fuss, no studies, no argument. Tough love is needed. We are dealing with children here, plus a significant contingent of marxist professors of the type who proliferate on most campuses. In either case, you can't argue with immature, irrational minds.

As cargo ships congested at U.S. ports, creating an unprecedented supply-chain crisis, Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg was on paid leave to spend time with his husband, Chasten, and their two newborn babies. After weeks of people questioning Buttigieg’s whereabouts as crisis after crisis mounted, Politico’s West Wing Playbook confirmed on Thursday that the transportation secretary was “lying low.” “They didn’t previously announce it, but Buttigieg’s office told West Wing Playbook that the secretary has actually been on paid leave since mid-August to spend time with his husband, Chasten, and their two newborn babies,” Playbook reported.

If regular democracy isn’t doing so well, maybe it’s time to fall back on “Irish Democracy.” That’s what Yale political scientist James Scott calls the passive resistance of a society that doesn’t like what its rulers are doing to it. In his book “Two Cheers for ­Anarchy,” he writes, “One need not have an actual conspiracy to achieve the practical effects of a conspiracy. More regimes have been brought, piecemeal, to their knees by what was once called ‘Irish Democracy,’ the silent, dogged resistance, withdrawal and truculence of millions of ordinary people, than by revolutionary vanguards or rioting mobs.”

If Joe Biden had been asked to create a scenario where he was 100 percent guaranteed to lose his re-election bid, the supply-chain crisis would top the list. Even though it’s still nearly three years to Election Day, a ruined Christmas is the kind of catastrophe that the American people will never forget — or forgive. It may not be entirely Joe Biden’s fault. This is, after all, a global economy, and what happens in many other nations impacts the U.S. in different ways. But Biden’s nameplate is on the door to the room at the White House that says “Boss.” He will be blamed because that’s the way

Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) has actually been very clear and consistent when it comes to her demands. According to the Daily Mail, she just laid down one of her major demands before she’ll even consider a vote on the Build Back Better bill. She wants the bipartisan infrastructure bill passed first. She’s made that plain, but they just haven’t been listening. She’s said in the past that she believes it should have been voted on separately and shouldn’t have been hooked to the Build Back Better (BBB) reconciliation bill by the progressives. She’s also chastised Democratic leaders for going back on their promises to move the infrastructure bill forward. Meanwhile

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit said Thursday it will allow Texas’s heartbeat abortion law, which allows private citizens to sue providers who perform abortions after a fetal heartbeat can be detected, to remain in effect while it considers an appeal of a judge’s order blocking the new law. The court issued a 2–1 order siding with the state of Texas, refusing the Justice Department’s request to reinstate an earlier court ruling that had blocked enforcement of the law. The order was backed by Judges James C. Ho, who was nominated by Donald Trump, and Catharina Haynes, who was nominated by George W. Bush.

The number of illegal migrants released into the United States by the Biden administration is staggering. Fox News obtained an exclusive story with documents from the Border Patrol. They are being released with little or no supervision and no fear of deportation. The fact is that no matter how many times DHS Secretary Mayorkas says the border is closed, the numbers don’t lie. Since March, at least 160,000 illegal migrants have been released into the United States. There is a broad use of limited parole authority that made more than 30,000 migrants eligible for work permits

Loudoun County Public Schools responded Wednesday to a bombshell report that it covered up a sexual assault perpetrated by a “gender fluid” male student in the girls’ bathroom. The victim’s father, Scott Smith, was arrested during a school board meeting in June before he could describe what had happened to his daughter. In a statement released Wednesday, the district claimed that the school board was ignorant of the details at the time of the meeting and only learned of the alleged rape through the Daily Wire’s recent report. Moreover, the district wrote that it was obliged to defer the initial criminal investigation to local law enforcement,

If Scott Smith unjustly endured a public humiliation at the Loudoun County Public Schools board meeting, the LCPS board’s turn has only just begun. Fox News Channel host Laura Ingraham followed up on the reporting by the Daily Wire’s Luke Rosiak on Smith’s horrific treatment by the LCPS board, trans activists, the media, and even the Department of Justice. Smith recaps the story with Ingraham, starting with the rape of his daughter in a girls’ restroom by a boy wearing a dress, and ending with his plea for better outcomes — especially for parents who want to engage in the system:

The 90-year-old, who played Captain James T Kirk in the Star Trek films and TV series, took off from the Texas desert with three other individuals. Mr Shatner's trip on the rocket system - developed by founder Jeff Bezos - lasted about 10 minutes. The craft safely landed just after 10:00 local time (16:00 BST). Those aboard got to experience a short period of weightlessness as they climbed to a maximum altitude just above 100km (60 miles). From there they were able to see the curvature of the Earth

Washington — Millions of retirees on Social Security will get a 5.9% boost in benefits for 2022. The biggest cost-of-living adjustment in 39 years follows a burst in inflation as the economy struggles to shake off the drag of the coronavirus pandemic. The COLA, as it’s commonly called, amounts to $92 a month for the average retired worker, according to estimates released Wednesday by the Social Security Administration. That marks an abrupt break from a long lull in inflation that saw cost-of-living adjustments averaging just 1.65% a year over the last 10 years.

The latest inflation reading shows that prices rose by 5.4 percent on an annualized basis in September as supply chain bottlenecks, worker shortages and high demand kept prices rising, according to data released Wednesday by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The inflation rate rose a seasonally adjusted 0.4 percent in September from August, according to the latest Consumer Price Index. That is well below the 0.9 percent seen in June but not enough to point to slowing inflation. Increases in food and shelter accounted for more than half of the index’s increase, with food rising 0.9 percent. Gasoline rose 3.9 percent and new vehicles rose by 1.3 percent.

This is what Dr. Robert Malone, inventor of the mRNA technology warned about. The spike proteins are not staying at the injection site and they are dangerous.

Washington–Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe has won back his full pension as part of a settlement of his lawsuit arising from his firing during the Trump administration more than three years ago, his lawyers announced Thursday. McCabe, a frequent target of then-President Donald Trump’s ire, was fired in March 2018 by then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions after the Justice Department’s inspector general determined he had misled internal investigators about his involvement in a news media leak. The termination came hours before he was to have retired, denying him his pension. McCabe has denied intentionally deceiving anyone, was never criminally charged and blasted his firing as politically motivated.

During the 2020 election, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg spent hundreds of millions of dollars to turn out likely Democratic voters. But this wasn’t traditional political spending. He funded a targeted, private takeover of government election operations by nominally nonpartisan — but demonstrably ideological — nonprofit organizations.Analysis conducted by our team demonstrates this money significantly increased Joe Biden’s vote margin in key swing states. In places like Georgia, when Biden won by 12,000 votes, and Arizona, where he won by 10,000, the spending likely put him over the top.
