As a conservative, Andrew was also making the point that politics is a reflection of cultural beliefs, and that conservatives were losing the political battle because they were unwilling to fight the cultural battle while the Far-Left was not only fighting it, they were taking no prisoners.

OVERWHELMING Evidence Proves Obama Lied about Knowledge Of Hillary’s Illegal Email Server |

OVERWHELMING Evidence Proves Obama Lied about Knowledge Of Hillary’s Illegal Email Server |: Judicial Watch announced yesterday that it has obtained new emails that prove former president Barack Obama lied when he said he knew nothing about Hillary Clinton’s emails until he heard about it on the news like the rest of America.

The proof comes from a batch of emails dating back to 2012. It has taken this long for a court-ordered discovery to bring the evidence we all knew existed to light.

Considering Obama and his surrogates continue to claim his was the most “scandal free” presidency in modern history, it will be interesting to see how the mainstream media buries this one.

SAT "Adversity Score" Will Be a Backdoor to Racial Quotas in College Admissions.

SAT "Adversity Score" Will Be a Backdoor to Racial Quotas in College Admissions.: For decades, the College Board defended the SAT, which it writes and administers, against charges that the test gives an unfair advantage to middle-class white students. No longer. Under relentless pressure from the racial-preferences lobby, the Board has now caved to the anti-meritocratic ideology of “diversity.” The Board will calculate for each SAT-taker an “adversity score” that purports to measure a student’s socioeconomic position, according to the Wall Street Journal. Colleges can use this adversity index to boost the admissions ranking of allegedly disadvantaged students who otherwise would score too poorly to be considered for admission.
