Conservative millennials are the Free Speech Movement’s only hope

Campus free speech showdowns have recently received an overwhelming amount of media exposure. This is not because First Amendment conflicts have not occurred in other venues, but rather because the media understands that the college campus is the ultimate battleground of ideas, and free speech is the foundation of any ideological battle. The Free Speech […]

For millennials, living at parents’ home until age 27 has become the new normal

Stats show that millennials are living with their parents longer than previous generations, but at what age does this living situation become embarrassing for them? According to a new survey from TD Ameritrade, young millennials (ages 20 to 26) on average said that 28 is the cut-off for them. Only 5 percent of young millennials felt […]

The Great Millennial Migration… to the Midwest?

Forced out by sanctuary cities on both coasts and in search of the American Dream, many career-minded millennials are finding new homes in an unexpected region: the Midwest. According to the Ellie Mae Millennial Tracker, millennial homebuyers are favoring Midwestern states. They aren’t relocating to major metropolitan hubs like Chicago, however. They are opting for much […]

NRA CEO’s anti-millennial rant is misguided and counterproductive

National Rifle Association CEO Wayne LaPierre has brilliantly led the NRA for years, but his latest speech at the NRA convention in Atlanta might have just alienated potential and existing millennial supporters, and tarnished the group’s universal message. Rather than simply directing his speech at the NRA’s gun control opponents in government and elsewhere, he took […]

Not just jobs: U.S. is losing millennials to overseas employers

As the Trump economy touts quarterly job growth, the country continues to lose millennials to opportunities abroad — a huge problem considering that millennials form a third of the U.S. workforce. According to the State Department, about 9 million Americans currently live abroad, up from 4 million in 1999. These 5 million didn’t all pack their bags […]

Obama’s legacy? Many millennials okay with Big Brother viewing their phones

After eight years of the Obama administration surveilling its political opponents, it seems that millennials have grown increasingly complacent to Big Brother watching them. According to a new online survey from Radware, 20 percent of millennials would rather have the government view what is on their phone than their significant other. Interestingly enough, only eight percent […]

Millennials forced to flee sanctuary cities

While the nation’s top sanctuary cities take special care to protect illegal immigrants from deportation, they are losing one of their most valuable resources: millennials. In his first week, President Donald Trump signed an executive order withholding federal funding for sanctuary cities, and ultimately punishing them for defying federal immigration laws. As expected, the elected officials […]

Frustrated millennials should look to blue collar jobs in the Trump era

Over past decades, high schools across the country have increasingly pushed students toward a four-year degree, discrediting the value of trade schools, apprenticeships, and other paths for blue collar job training. Meanwhile, college debt continues to skyrocket, and for those who actually graduate, that diploma is less likely than ever to provide a guaranteed job. […]

UT Study: Black millennials ‘optimistic’ in the age of Trump

While the left would have us believe that black millennials are angry at the world and have given up hope in the American dream, a new study conducted by the University of Texas (UT) at Austin suggests otherwise. Researchers were shocked to discover that 61 percent of black millennials were actually “optimistic” or “very optimistic” about […]

Racism exists: Report shows left-wing anti-Semitism on the rise

For too long, the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel spread like cancer on college campuses across the country without much resistance from those in the academic community — until now. The American Council of Trustees and Alumni (ACTA), a national higher education reform group, released a new report on Thursday that exposes how […]

Even the mainstream media skewered ‘A Day Without a Woman’ strike

Building off the momentum of the Women’s March in Washington, feminist organizers hoped that their so-called “A Day Without a Woman” strike would really stick it to the Trump administration for its supposedly “anti-woman” policies. While the March seemed to have the full support of the mainstream media, many outlets started to express skepticism, and for good […]

University of Notre Dame leftists are in an uproar over the announcement that Vice President Mike Pence will be delivering their spring commencement address in May and will receive an honorary degree from the institution.

Millennials, minorities protest Hollywood hypocrites

While some conservative groups called for a complete boycott of the 89th Annual Academy Awards, a small group of Trump supporters brought their distaste for liberal Hollywood elites to the source, protesting them as they arrived for the show. According to the Los Angeles Times, about a dozen protestors with signs, Trump banners and American flags protested […]

Chelsea Clinton 2020? Trying to be “spicy,” but she’s just irrelevant

As the DNC struggles for new charismatic leaders to revive their party, theoretically, Chelsea Clinton could have been a shoe-in. Unfortunately for them, she’s way too boring and a little too late. Chelsea has recently attempted to reinvent herself with a “spicy, sarcastic online personality” and appears to have undergone a “social media personality transplant.” The […]

Facebook eager to regain conservatives’ trust with CPAC sponsorship

Facebook is hoping to mollify skeptical conservatives by underwriting the largest annual gathering of conservative activists in the United States. The social media giant donated $120,000 to this year’s Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in the form of both cash and in-kind sponsorship. The left is pulling their hair out over the news. However, CEO […]

Millennials believe Trump will help their retirement fund

While some millennials are out marching against President Trump every weekend, many are actually excited about how the Trump administration will perk up their portfolios. Approximately 55 percent of millennial investors believe the new administration’s policies will benefit their retirement savings.

EPA chief’s top priorities directly impact millennials

President Trump’s pragmatic pick for Environmental Protection Agency administrator, Scott Pruitt, has made it clear that he wants to quickly scrap two of the Obama administration’s signature environmental rules: the Clean Power Plan and the Waters of the United States (WOTUS) rule. This is good news for millennials. The Clean Power Plan is wishful thinking […]

Trump’s reversal of coal rule saves countless millennial jobs

The Trump administration is making good on its promises to the coal industry, and struggling coal miners have reason to be optimistic about their future. On Thursday, President Donald Trump signed a measure overturning the Obama administration’s Stream Protection Act. According to the National Mining Association, this rule had the potential to threaten 281,000 positions, […]

A liberal state cut funding to colleges. Professors are calling cuts ‘structural racism’

The California Faculty Association (CFA) is fighting for more pay raises and is now playing the race card to get them. In 2016, the faculty union threatened to strike during its so-called “Fight for Five,” during which time they demanded a five percent General Salary Increase (GSI) for all faculty. The demand wasn’t entirely outrageous, […]

Bloomberg to millennials: Trump’s wall will cause climate change

The left is working around the clock to mobilize millennials against President Trump’s recent “border wall” executive order, but their latest tactic may leave even the most progressive millennials scratching their heads.
