Luke Gatti, UConn ´Mac And Cheese´
Student, Offers Apology Via YouTube

The University of Connecticut student whose obscenity-laced tirade about wanting bacon jalapeno macaroni and cheese at the Student Union went viral a week ago has posted an apology on YouTube. A subdued and humble Luke Gatti shot the 2-minute, 33-second video himself and uploaded it to YouTube on Sunday, his father, Vincent Gatti, confirmed Monday. Luke Gatti titled the video "Drunk UConn Student Apology Mac and Cheese" and says in the opening, "My name is Luke and I saw the video of me and I´d like to just get a few things out there."

Personally, I think it’s too early to start shopping for headstones for MSNBC’s liberal opinion lineup, but there’s no doubt that there are big changes going on at the network. Morning Joe seems in no danger of going away and Rachel Maddow is hanging on to the 9 pm time slot like grim death, but many of their other shows are either gone, moved to the low rent district or being looked at by executives with axes in their hands. Ronan Farrow, Joy Reid, The Cycle and Ed Schultz have effectively vanished. Alex Wagner moved to the weekends and Al

Coming this fall, tune in to watch a few shows critical of middle America and the US military. At the National Press Club, Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson pointed out that the entire media business – especially the press (and the entertainment industry to a great extent) – used to be on the side of the people, but now they are only catering to a few affluent urban liberals. Isn’t that swell? The very media that’s supposed to be catering to the majority of Americans is now critical of the very audience they’re supposed to cater to. Just take a look

The president of the Olive Garden restaurant chain has apologized to a uniformed police officer after he was kicked out of a Missouri restaurant over his service gun. Olive Garden President Dave George called and apologized to Kansas City Officer Michael Holsworth after he posted a message on Facebook, that quickly went viral, describing an incident on Sunday in which he was asked by a hostess to leave an Independence restaurant because of its policy against guns, the Kansas City Star reported. “Now mind you I am in full police uniform and on duty,” Officer Holsworth recalled. “I actually thought

The Obama administration is distancing itself from one of the biggest failures in the war on terrorism: the collapse of its $590 million program to train and equip Syrian opposition forces to fight the Islamic State’s terrorist army. Defense Undersecretary for Policy Christine Wormuth blamed Congress for the way it wrote the legislation authorizing the program. She said the task was so daunting, “I don’t think at all this was a case of poor execution.” A House Republican staffer said Monday that a senior White House official contacted the House Armed Services Committee in the summer of 2014 and requested

SAC CITY, Iowa - Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) said Monday that the military´s moves to include transgender soldiers in its ranks had shifted its focus away from its core mission. The military will soon allow transgender soldiers to serve, noted Cruz. "How about having the military focusing on hunting down and killing the bad guys...instead of treating it as this crucible for social justice innovations. We’ve lost sight of what their job is and that’s what we need to get back to." Cruz asked at a stop at a restaurant here. The Texas Republican was asked about Don´t Ask, Don´t

In meeting after meeting this spring and summer, President Obama insisted that the last American troops in Afghanistan would return home by the end of his presidency, definitively ending the longest war in American history. Obama and his closest foreign policy advisers laid out the reasons for his military commanders. Keeping as many as 10,000 troops in Afghanistan indefinitely at a cost of as much as $10 billion to $15 billion a year wasn’t politically feasible or financially responsible. There were more pressing domestic priorities that needed money. The country faced bigger threats. Then, in August, Gen. Martin E. Dempsey,

Carbon dioxide is plant food, one of the basic necessities for almost all life on Earth. That enviros have tried to turn CO2 into a bogeyman verges on the bizarre. In fact, increasing levels of CO2 have already been of great benefit to plants and humans. This paper by Indur Goklany and the Global Warming Policy Foundation is an excellent corrective to warmist hysteria: "Carbon dioxide fertilises plants, and emissions from fossil fuels have already had a hugely beneficial effect on crops, increasing yields by at least 10-15%. This has not only been good for humankind but for the natural world

In what could be dubbed an act of criminal irony, a statue of Christopher Columbus in downtown Detroit was vandalized just in time for this year´s Columbus Day. The statue, located at Jefferson and Randolph right next to city hall, was splashed with fake blood, and a hatchet was taped to his forehead as if it had just been struck. The hatchet was later removed by a group of urban explorers, who can be seen examining the statue in a video posted to Facebook. It was not clear when exactly the statue was vandalized. Detroit police are looking into the incident.

As a conservative Republican with libertarian leanings, most folks don’t expect me to advocate for stricter gun laws. After all, I’m a gun owner, and stalwart defender of the 2nd Amendment that secures the individual right to self-protection and defense against tyrannical government. But after watching this “public service announcement” [below] by the folks at Saturday Night Live, the former TV comedy show, I’m publicly coming out in favor of one, powerful, inarguably necessary new gun law. Here it is… No guns for liberals. That’s it. You doubt me? Just watch how the liberals in this SNL commercial handle firearms. No muzzle control. No

In a wide-ranging conversation with Pulitzer Prize-winning author Marilynne Robinson, President Obama suggested that Christians who take their religion the most seriously often adopt an “us versus them” mentality. In the interview, published in the Nov. 5 issue of The New York Review of Books, the president lamented “the fact that here in the United States, sometimes Christian interpretation seems to posit an ‘us versus them,’ and those are sometimes the loudest voices. “But sometimes I think you also get frustrated with kind of the wishy-washy, more liberal versions where anything goes,” Mr. Obama said, referring to Ms. Robinson. “How do you

Regulation: You can bet all the contenders at Tuesday´s Democratic presidential debate will say they´re the toughest on big business. What they won´t say is their own policies favor big business, big time. Bernie Sanders, the self-described socialist who´s been attracting big crowds and gaining ground on Hillary Clinton in polls, gave a glimpse of this over the weekend, telling "Meet the Press" how he plans to compare "my consistency and my willingness to stand up to Wall Street corporations, big corporations, with the Secretary." Clinton, meanwhile, has been moving rapidly leftward to shore up support among the party´s increasingly hard-left base,

What was supposed to be friendly territory grew heated in a CBS interview with President Obama that aired Sunday night, showing a contentious debate between Obama and a network correspondent. In a wide-ranging, 24-minute interview that covered domestic and foreign policy, it was the Middle East that produced the most fireworks between Obama and ´60 Minutes´ reporter Steve Kroft. Kroft repeatedly challenged Obama´s strategies in Syria and against the Islamic State in the region, accusing the president of ´embarrassing´ failures and a lack of leadership. Obama defended the U.S. mission in countries like Syria and Iraq and said better results will take

Rivalry: When told Russia´s Vladimir Putin was challenging his leadership, President Obama´s first response was to say that his "definition of leadership would be leading on climate change." We´re not making this up. Obama was probably expecting to have a friendly chat with another adoring member of the media when he sat across from Steve Kroft for his "60 Minutes" interview that was broadcast Sunday night. But as our Andrew Malcolm said, it "became a rather contentious interview." That contention was centered on Putin´s challenge of Obama´s role as a world leader. Putin, Kroft said, is "challenging your leadership, Mr. President." To which

Jeb Bush’s PAC Erases Carly

A new Internet-ad by Jeb Bush’s independent PAC erases fourth-place challenger Carly Fiorina from the GOP’s 2016 line-up. The 15-second ad shows Bush’s eight male rivals — Donald Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), Ben Carson, etc. — but noticeably excludes the one woman in the race. That’s unexpected, because Fiorina currently leads fifth-place Bush, 8.9 percent to 7.1 percent, in RCP’s average of primary polls, following Fiorina’s highly rated performance in the GOP’s second debate. “Maybe Jeb is just trying to forget the last debate?,” said Sarah Isgur Flores, Fiorina’s deputy campaign manager. “Or maybe they can’t read New Hampshire and Iowa polls?

Elections: Just months after handing out California driver´s licenses to illegals, Gov. Jerry Brown has signed a law to automatically register every driver to vote. Supposedly, it´s to raise turnout. More likely, it´s inviting fraud. So how does opening up U.S. presidential elections to the votes of any of the citizens of El Salvador, Armenia, Mexico or China sound? Foreigners have complained for years about wanting to vote in U.S. elections and in California. And now they may get their wish — unless California´s Gov. Jerry Brown is somehow kept from enacting AB 1461, a bill to automatically register every recipient of

The U.S. is moving forward with plans to remove its Patriot missile defense systems from Turkey despite recent escalations in the region, including Iran testing a new long-range ballistic missile over the weekend. Iranian Defense Minister Brig. Gen. Hossein Dehqan announced on Sunday the successful test of the newest Iran-made long-range missile, dubbed the "Emad," or Pillar, that could likely reach Turkey. In addition, the Russians are playing a greater role in the Syrian civil war, raging along Turkey´s border. Despite that, the U.S. is continuing with plans made in August to remove all Patriot missile defense systems from Turkey, a

A teenager hunting for birds in the jungle of a Philippine island claims to have stumbled upon a fuselage “full of skeletons” and a Malaysian flag, and authorities believe it could be from missing Flight MH370. The coastal wreckage in Tawi Tawi was under investigation by local authorities in Malaysia’s Sabah region Monday. The finding was reported by Jamil Omar of Borneo, 46, who says his nephew made the grim discovery in September, but didn’t realize what it was as he has no access to television or newspapers. “There was a skeleton still in the pilot’s seat.

The episode known as Rathergate represents one of the great journalistic frauds of our time. The scandal erupted from a 60 Minutes Wednesday segment rushed to air on the evening of September 8, 2004, in time to influence the approaching presidential election pitting George W. Bush against John Kerry, as it was clearly intended to do. The segment consisted of two parts that didn’t quite fit together except in their antipathy to Bush. In the first part, based on an interview with the vice chairman of Kerry’s national finance committee, Dan Rather essentially claimed that political influence had been brought

The Reykjavik summit talks, which began on this day in 1986, broke down when Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev insisted that American research for the Strategic Defense Initiative—a k a “Star Wars”—be strictly confined to laboratories for ten years; Reagan refused. Alexander Cockburn wrote in his Nation column that it would have been folly to assume that Reagan might walk back his principal political commitment of the last several decades: specifically, that unbridled arms developments and hostility to the Soviet Union could lead to peace. So much for Reagan’s place in history. It’s been an axiom of those holding a kindly

Donald Trump, the GOP frontrunner known for insulting his rivals and eschewing political correctness, came to New Hampshire on Monday to talk about the need to get along. At an event sponsored by No Labels, the bipartisan group founded by Democrat-turned-independent Joe Lieberman and 2012 Republican presidential candidate Jon Huntsman, Trump lamented a gridlocked Washington where “people aren’t getting together.” He praised the days of Tip O’Neill and Ronald Reagan, where leaders “got things done.” And he said the term “compromise” doesn’t have to be a dirty word if winning is involved. The real estate mogul predicted that many of his rivals

Some really good news today. We only have to put up with Donald Trump´s divisiveness and mocking of other candidates until he knocks some more of them out of the race. "When it becomes a different kind of situation, we’ll see I’m going to be much less divisive," Trump told a large crowd at the Problem Solvers Convention in Manchester, N.H. Trump went on to describe Marco Rubio and Jeb Bush as "puppets." An audience member had asked if Trump worried that being so divisive could affect his ability to work with people later. She was roundly applauded. Perhaps the woman remembered an Illinois senator once promising to

President Barack Obama’s wide-ranging interview with CBS News journalist Steve Kroft was probing to the point that it was characterized by Vox.com’s Max Fisher as “oddly confrontational.” The rest of the liberal publication’s review of the interchange could be best described as damage control, and there was quite a bit of damage to mitigate. The president was outwardly bitter and resentful toward his interlocutor who protested being “filibustered” the president. Obama had been robbed of the luxury of clarity and concision by his own inept handling of myriad international
