'House of Cards' predicting 2016
The fourth season of House of Cards premiered on Netflix last month and featured a contested convention.

Colbert 'dine-and-ditches' Hillary
With the intense campaigning surrounding Tuesday’s New York primary, Stephen Colbert invited Hillary Clinton to lunch at the Carnegie Deli, “where they serve sandwiches as big as a baby’s head,” in order “to get some insight into this election.” While Bill Clinton is a vegan, Hillary assured Colbert that he’s not “a smug vegan,” and […]

How Trump can dominate the millennial vote
It is no secret; the American public has a lot of negative feelings about both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.

Austin loses $29 million by banning Uber
The expulsion of Uber and Lyft from Austin comes with a price tag: roughly $29 million in lost revenue for drivers, not to mention taxes collected by the city.

4 states have had no private job growth since 2000
For Illinois and three other states, private-sector job creation has been unheard of in the 21st century. “Illinois has not had a net gain in private-sector job opportunities in nearly 17 years,” Michael Lucci noted.

#FightFor15 ignores 100 years of economic evidence
The shockwaves that hit after minimum wage increases across the country could be brutal.

Economists have written scores of papers on the […]
CEO calls for $28 min. wage (pays his workers $9)
Leading by example is harder than giving speeches and glad-handing other rich liberals. Seattle-area venture capitalist Nick Hanauer has actively promoted raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour — even going so far last week to call for a $28 per hour minimum wage. “[I]f the minimum wage had tracked the wages of the top 1 percent, […]
The empirical evidence on the minimum wage
The belief in the $15 minimum wage to defeat poverty borders on the religious. Empirical evidence casts doubt that the benefit will be so smooth and so unequivocal. “I can understand why some people look at the evidence and disagree with me. What I can’t understand is the high level of certainty that some proponents […]

Illegals demand Georgetown disinvite DHS secretary
Unauthorized immigrant students are mobilizing themselves to issue demands about which commencement speakers are unacceptable to them. Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson was announced as the School of Foreign Service’s 2016 commencement speaker, much to the discomfort of some.

Justice Thomas gives Hillsdale commencement
As university commencements take place, many students may be force fed one more dose of liberalism before they leave. Those at Hillsdale College, however, had the opportunity to hear Justice Clarence Thomas on Saturday.

Towson presentation: 'White people are a plague'
Towson University has featured a presentation on “White People are a Plague to the Planet,” according to Hypeline.  A former SGA representative from the university sent in a photograph of the slideshow presentation.

Girdusky: Paul Ryan can't unite the right

Who should be the next House Speaker?
Speaker of the House certainly seems to be a thankless job. People are actually running away from it rather than running for it. Speaker John Boehner announced his resignation, effective at the end of the month, but he may not be able to get out as quickly as he would have liked. The current Majority […]

Liberals: Security cameras are racist
Civil libertarians have sounded the alarm against big government’s surveillance state encroaching on freedom and privacy, but Social Justice Warriors only care about government spying because it might be racist.
