6/24/2015 9:21:45 AM  Jazz Shaw

6/24/2015 8:41:28 AM  Ed Morrissey
The sex-trafficking ring in Rotherham may well be the worst in the West ever, or so one would hope. British officials have now identified at least three hundred suspects in a crime syndicate that raped and trafficked underage British girls for years,

Most "assault weapon" owners are ignoring NY gun law
6/24/2015 8:01:46 AM  Jazz Shaw

6/23/2015 8:41:22 PM  Allahpundit
All three of these groups should be boycotted immediately and mercilessly, needless to say. Quite a week for unity in America. First the two parties come together in opposition to the Confederate flag, now the races come together in opposition to

Nuclear proliferation expert: Obama's deal with Iran will fail at its core goal, extending the "breakout" period
6/23/2015 8:01:18 PM  Allahpundit

6/23/2015 7:21:54 PM  Allahpundit
That’s not just a quote from a poli sci prof featured in this story about Jindal’s apparently insufficient Indian-ness. It’s also how the paper is promoting the story on social media. Remember, all minority conservatives are racially

6/23/2015 6:41:04 PM  Jazz Shaw
Tomorrow will be the sentencing of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev for the terrorist murder of multiple people at the Boston Marathon. The proceeding is essentially a formality, as the judge has no option other than to order the death sentence selected by the jury.

Video: Durable goods decline 1.8%, business investment a mixed bag in May
6/23/2015 6:01:37 PM  Ed Morrissey
After the contraction of the first quarter, most analysts expected a rebound in Q2, but today’s durable goods report from the Census Bureau delivers at best a mixed bag. Overall, durable goods orders declined by 1.8%, and outside of defense orders,

6/23/2015 5:21:24 PM  Jazz Shaw
After the disastrous deaths of James Foley, Steven Sotloff, and Peter Kassig, the White House was forced to go back and take a fresh look at not only how they deal with potential hostage rescue scenarios, but how they interact with the families of

6/23/2015 4:41:17 PM  Allahpundit

6/23/2015 4:01:10 PM  Jazz Shaw
The 2015 Defending the American Dream Summit is coming up two months from now and it’s going to be a big deal for a few reasons. It’s a cattle call for GOP donors and it provides a chance for politicians – including presidential

Great news: OPM chief says no one is personally responsible for massive security failure; Update: Video added
6/23/2015 3:21:26 PM  Ed Morrissey

Matt Bevin calls for removal of Jefferson Davis statue from Kentucky capitol as retailers dump Confederate flag merch
6/23/2015 2:41:43 PM  Allahpundit
Is this bolder than what Haley did or not as bold? Davis may not hold the same cultural currency as a symbol of southern pride that the flag does, but Haley had less to lose in making her move than Bevin does. She’s the term-limited governor of

Begala: Yeah, Hillary has to answer for the Confederate flag, too
6/23/2015 2:01:06 PM  Ed Morrissey
Yes, in fact she does, but longtime Clinton strategist Paul Begala does his best to provide one for Hillary Clinton. The Clintons, or at least their political allies, had no problem using Confederate symbology such as these during their campaigns, and

College divestment from fossil fuels is largely "window dressing"
6/23/2015 1:21:16 PM  Jazz Shaw
Divestment is still all the rage in liberal circles these days, particularly when it comes to universities and their investment portfolios. Usually the target is Israel, but there’s also been a rash of schools talking about divesting from

6/23/2015 12:41:18 PM  Ed Morrissey

6/23/2015 12:01:13 PM  Jazz Shaw
There’s a change coming to the Newark school system, which has seen a serious upheaval since Chris Christie took office, but it remains to be seen if it will be for the better or not. The failing schools in the Newark area were taken over by the

Video: What is and isn't too offensive to be shown on CNN
6/23/2015 11:21:28 AM  Allahpundit
Erick Erickson makes a point worth amplifying. So as not to offend, CNN wouldn't show the Charlie Hebdo cartoons, but was okay showing the N-word while apologizing if it offends. — Erick Erickson (@EWErickson) June 23, 2015 Watch the first clip
