Emmett McGroarty, a lawyer and senior fellow with the American Principles Project, is losing patience waiting for the Republican Congress to contest dangerous power grabs by the Obama administration in regards to education policies. McGroarty’s issue portfolio puts him in constant touch with parents in all 50 states to fight Common Core. He campaigns against increased data collection and privacy invasion by the federal government and helps the national opt-out movement, which is spreading like wildfire as students increasingly refuse to take standardized tests. In this 28-minute exclusive video interview, McGroarty says the Republican establishment, with a special mention of

When you think about it, we’ve seen this movie before, but recognizing the actual situation is so painful that it will be a long time before the Clinton campaign and its media auxiliaries dare face the truth. Allow me to explain. (snip) Hillary Clinton is playing Margaret Dumont to Donald Trump’s Groucho Marx. While Trump is no mere comedian aimed at getting laughs and nothing more, he is mining the same vein of public sentiment that Groucho did: near universal resentment over phony pretentiousness. In the 1930s and 1940s, it was social conventions related to class – opera goers who

ESPN Magazine columnist Howard Bryant most certainly does not approve of cops singing the anthem before pro sporting events. The biweekly sports magazine comes with a bonus dose of dubious liberal piety from “The Truth” columnist, the mag’s moral authority/scold on social issues, especially what he sees as systemic American racism. His latest column in the June 6 issue, “The Unspoken Truth” (not online) is on a familiar topic: the scourge of “authoritarian” patriotism and militarism infecting the ballpark. The subhead: “Why don’t more athletes speak out on behalf of their communities? Perhaps more of them would if there wasn’t



Hillary Clinton´s Emails:
Lying in Plain Sight

Speaking in San Francisco Thursday, Hillary Clinton told supporters that Donald Trump is not fit to be president. "He roots for himself," the former Secretary of State proclaimed, "and that´s the type of person who should not be president of the United States." By that standard, Clinton herself has no business running to win the White House. Last week, the State Department´s independent watchdog, the Office of the Inspector General, issued a report on Clinton´s "email records management." The report includes information that shows that practically everything Clinton has said about her use of a private server is false. Last year, Clinton

A North Carolina police department backed out of sending 50 police officers to the Republican presidential convention in Cleveland in June over concerns about whether the city is prepared to host an event that is expected to bring at least 50,000 visitors to northeast Ohio.Greensboro police made the decision earlier this week to pull its officers from the event, saying the city isn’t providing workers’ compensation for coverage for out-of-town officers and is requiring them to get physical exams they’d have to pay for themselves.Deputy Police Chief Brian James wrote in a memo to the city’s police chief that he had spoken with police administrators experienced in planning events like the GOP convention and that they expressed “a lack of confidence in the city of Cleveland and their preparedness.

Now that the presidential primary process is winding down with two presumptive nominees, the real presidential campaign is ramping up. Especially for the Democrat base, including major media organizations such CNN. While CNN handled several Republican debates in a commendable manner, it was still early in the process with Donald Trump and the seventeen dwarves calling each other names. Now with Trump surpassing the 1237 delegate threshold and Clinton on the verge of emerging from the ‘Berning’ fire of her primary battle with enough delegates to secure the Democrat nomination, the battle lines are being drawn, and CNN has moved

Inside the Beltway and along the Washington-to-Boston corridor, #NeverTrump has won the hearts and minds of conservative intellectuals and the high-toned media. The dissenters—yes, there are some—make a lot less noise.But move away from the East Coast and it´s a different story. Out there, the conservative intelligentsia isn´t aligned against Donald Trump—quite the contrary. Roger L. Simon, the screenwriter, novelist, and former CEO of PJ Media, predicted last August that Trump would win the presidency. Nine months later, in May, he wrote that "it still holds true." "Like others, I want things to change .??.??. and Donald seems like the man

Oberlin, it started in December, when the temperatures ran high, although the weeping willows and the yellow poplars that had flared in the fall were bare already. Problems had a tendency to escalate. There was, to name one thing, the food fight: students had noted the inauthenticity of food at the school’s Afrikan Heritage House, and followed up with an on-site protest. (Some international students, meanwhile, complained that cafeteria dishes such as sushi and bánh mì were prepared with the wrong ingredients, making a mockery of cultural cuisine.) There was scrutiny of the curriculum: a student wanted trigger warnings on

As you may have seen, Donald Trump was in New Mexico earlier this week. He attacked the state’s governor, Susana Martinez. Who is a conservative Republican. A Reagan Republican. I know her a little bit. I’ve interviewed her at length. I’ve studied her governorship. For a 2012 piece, go here. For a piece two years later — when Martinez was running for reelection — go here. Trump and Martinez could not be more different from each other. They are night and day. Martinez, I guess, represents the old Republican party. Trump represents the new one, the Trumpified GOP. Martinez, to

Barack Obama spoke in Hiroshima yesterday. The full text of his speech is here. Obama did not quite apologize for America’s use of the atomic bomb to bring WWII to an end, as some had feared. But his speech was nevertheless deeply revealing of his world view. Let’s begin by acknowledging that parts of Obama’s address were good, or at least unexceptionable. Peace is better than war! Modern man has developed terrible weapons, and the deaths of tens of millions are tragic. But it was in his specific references to Hiroshima and the weapons used there where Obama revealed his radical

Two birthdays, a full time piper, and valets to iron your shoelaces? The British royal family is determined to maintain an extensive roster of arcane traditions. In a few weeks time, London will be brought to a standstill as one of the most dramatic and colorful of royal ceremonies takes place: the Trooping of The Color, which sees the Queen process from Buckingham Palace down the Mall, to the accompaniment of much pomp and splendor. The Trooping of the Color is held in June each year to celebrate the Monarch’s birthday. But, hang on, I hear attentive readers say, weren’t there massive celebrations

United States military veterans are the lifeblood of our country. Forced to adapt and overcome the most difficult of circumstances while in service, veterans possess a unique understanding of leadership, negotiation and vigilance. We as citizens are forever indebted to all veterans who put their lives on the line in defense of American principles and liberty. But we at the George Washington Leadership Foundation have set out on a mission to recruit, train, elect and support military veteran candidates nation wide to give them the opportunity to continue serving with honor. In particular, we must thank those veterans who return to

Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., introduced a bill in the Senate this week that would require presidential candidates to release at least three years of tax returns within 15 days of officially becoming their party´s nominee. It would charge the Treasury with making the forms public if a candidate refused to do so. Wyden´s obvious target is Donald Trump, who will accept the Republican presidential nomination in July and says he will not release his returns before Election Day. (Snip)Still, Trump should release his returns, and he will be hounded and cajoled until he does. The tycoon insists there is nothing

While the State Department’s own internal probe found former Secretary Hillary Clinton violated federal recordkeeping laws, it’s not the first time she and her top aides shielded her e-mail from public disclosure while serving in a government position. As first lady, Hillary was embroiled in another scheme to bury sensitive White House e-mails, known internally as “Project X.” In 1999, as investigators looked into Whitewater, Travelgate, Filegate and other scandals involving the then-first lady, it was discovered that more than 1 million subpoenaed e-mails were mysteriously “lost” due to a “glitch” in a West Wing computer server.

Turns out maybe Donald Trump doesn’t want to be president after all. Oh, he wants to run for president. Almost certainly wants to win. Probably wants to be inaugurated. But doing the actual job? That’s something else. At least according to Paul Manafort, Trump’s strategist and campaign chairman, in an interview with HuffPost’s Howard Fineman: The vice presidential pick will also be part of the process of proving he’s ready for the White House, Manafort said. “He needs an experienced person to do the part of the job he doesn’t want to do. He seems himself more as the chairman

New Orleans Pelicans guard Bryce Dejean-Jones was fatally shot after breaking down the door to a Dallas apartment, authorities said Saturday. Dejean-Jones had been visiting his girlfriend’s new apartment and mistakenly entered the wrong unit, the player’s agent said. A man living at the apartment was sleeping when he heard his front door kicked open, Dallas Police Senior Cpl. DeMarquis Black said in a statement. When Dejean-Jones began kicking at the bedroom door, the man retrieved a handgun and fired. Officers who responded found Dejean-Jones collapsed in an outdoor passageway, and he died at a hospital. He was 23.

Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton joked Monday that "the last thing" America needs "is a bully in the pulpit" – a gag meant to dig into rival Donald Trump. She apparently hasn´t used the line since. "There is so much more that unites than divides us. And we´re going up against a candidate who will pull us backwards on every issue we care about," Clinton said at a union convention in Detroit. "We need a president who will use the bully pulpit to stand up for working families – but the last thing we need is a bully in the pulpit." Her wordplay

CLASSIC liberalism exalted tolerance, reflected in a line often (and probably wrongly) attributed to Voltaire: “I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.” On university campuses, that is sometimes updated to: “I disapprove of what you say, so shut up.” In a column a few weeks ago, I offered “a confession of liberal intolerance,” criticizing my fellow progressives for promoting all kinds of diversity on campuses — except ideological. I argued that universities risk becoming liberal echo chambers and hostile environments for conservatives, and especially for evangelical Christians. As I see it, we

Democrats could hardly believe their good fortune last month when it became clear that Hillary Clinton was headed to a general election showdown with Donald J. Trump. Mr. Trump carried so much baggage and had insulted so many voting blocs that some Clinton supporters began to imagine a landslide. But early optimism that this would be an easy race is evaporating. In the corridors of Congress, on airplane shuttles between New York and Washington, at donor gatherings and on conference calls, anxiety is spreading through the Democratic Party that Mrs. Clinton is struggling to find her footing. While she enjoys many demographic

Talk about a bad week. Hillary Clinton thought that the solution to having the State Department Inspector General expose her many lies about her secret and unauthorized e-mail server was to offer the media the hair of the dog that bit ’em — by simply regurgitating them in slightly different form. To the LA Times’ Doyle McManus, that strategy looked doomed from the moment Team Hillary launched it on Wednesday: An official statement from campaign spokesman Brian Fallon stopped just short of claiming that the inspector general’s report was actually a vindication. “While political opponents of Hillary Clinton are sure to misrepresent

A federal judge ordered Friday the release of Trump University internal documents in a class-action lawsuit against the defunct real estate school owned by presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. U.S. District Judge Gonzalo Curiel in San Diego calls for the documents to be released Thursday. The order comes in a response to a request by The Washington Post. Trump University has been cited repeatedly in anti-Trump political ads during the primary campaign as evidence that Trump fails to live up to his promises. Trump’s lawyers have denied any wrongdoing in the case before Curiel as well as another class-action suit in

HARRIS COUNTY, GA. -- Police were searching for three suspects after a sheriff´s deputy was shot in the face during a traffic stop south of Atlanta Saturday evening.

CINCINNATI -- The Cincinnati Zoo has temporarily closed its gorilla exhibit after a special zoo response team shot and killed a 17-year-old gorilla that grabbed and dragged a 4-year-old boy who fell into a moat. Zoo officials said the boy fell after he climbed through a public barrier at the Gorilla World exhibit Saturday afternoon. He was picked up out of the moat and dragged by the gorilla for about 10 minutes. Authorities said the child, who has not been identified, fell 10 to 12 feet.

BEIJING -- China´s decision to allow all married couples to have two children is driving a surge in demand for fertility treatment among older women, putting heavy pressure on clinics and breaking down past sensitivities, and even shame, about the issue. The rise in in vitro fertilization points to the deferred dreams of many parents who long wanted a second child, but were prevented by a strict population control policy in place for more than 30 years. That, in turn, is shifting prevailing attitudes in China regarding fertility treatments - formerly a matter of such sensitivity that couples were reluctant to tell
