Justice Clarence Thomas Continues His Big Payback.
(Akiit.com) There was an especially telling moment in Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas’s brief Q and A with C-Span in April, 2013. The question was what he thought about President Obama. Thomas first gave a pithy put-down of Obama and then admitted that he had practically no interaction with him. But then he sternly said that he, Thomas, was a black man who did not say the “prescribed things”... [Read more of this review]

Here’s Why Donald Trump Tap Dances on Taxes.
(Akiit.com) Donald Trump has reason to be reluctant to release his tax returns. In a New York Times piece about Ben Rhodes, President Obama‘s deputy national security adviser, Rhodes cynically explains that today’s journalism consists of young people whom he flat-out describes as ignorant. “The average reporter we talk to is 27 years old,” Rhodes said, “and their only...

(Akiit.com) This is the season of college Commencement speeches — an art form that has seldom been memorable, but has increasingly become toxic in recent times.
Two themes seem to dominate Commencement speeches. One is shameless self-advertising by people in government, or in related organizations supported by the taxpayers or donors, saying how nobler it is to be in “public service”... [Read more of this review]
Liberals Fumble the Ball When It Comes to the Washington Redskins.
(Akiit.com) I constantly tell my readers to always remember the key tenant of liberalism is “intent, not result.” To a liberal, the ends always justify the means.
Now I want to paint several scenarios for you.
You go to a restaurant and tell your server you want seafood, but yet they insist on trying to get you to have a steak.
You go to vote and you tell the election official that you want a Republican... [Read more of this review]
Antonin Scalia School of Law.
(Akiit.com) George Mason University School of Law has just been renamed the Antonin Scalia School of Law in honor of the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia. Accompanying the name change was a receipt of a $30 million gift: $10 million from the Charles Koch Foundation and $20 million from an anonymous donor. The combination of the names of Scalia and Koch has led to a number of George Mason University... [Read more of this review]
I Saw These “Stunning” News Anchors and My Jaw Didn’t Drop.
(Akiit.com) If you are like me, you sometimes find yourself surfing the Web when you are supposed to be doing something more important. You may notice “click bait” that poses questions like, “What has happened to these childhood stars?” or offers, “Secrets of the Mayans revealed.” Well, the other day I noticed one that concerned a list with dozens of allegedly, gorgeous news anchors called...

Lyin’ Donald Trump Is The Biggest Liar.
(Akiit.com) When Senator Ted Cruise was running for president, Donald Trump, now the presumptive Republican nominee, enjoyed referring to him as “lyin’ Ted Cruise.” At one rally, he said, “Lyin’ Ted Cruise – L-y-i-n-dash.” Actually, he should have said “apostrophe” instead of “dash,” but accuracy is not important to Donald Trump.
Fact checkers have determined that of all the... [Read more of this review]
Time to Shut Down the Department of Education.
(Akiit.com) The Department of Education was created under President Carter in 1979 under the same misguided pretense that has driven much of the growth of our massively bloated federal government — that if there is something we really care about, we should give more money and power to Washington bureaucrats.
It would be good news if the Department of Education just wasted the money it gets from... [Read more of this review]
West Point Correct Not to Punish Fist-Raising Black Women.
(Akiit.com) I remember the first time I saw a Black raised fist. I was watching the 1968 Summer Olympics in Mexico City and two Black athletes, Tommie Smith and John Carlos, raised their black-gloved fists and bowed their heads on the medal ceremony stand during the playing of the “The Star Spangled Banner.” I was too young to know what it meant, but I was old enough to recognize the inherent...

Rapper Afrika Bambaataa Is OUR Problem.
(Akiit.com) I wasn’t alive in the 80’s, or when Hip Hop truly began to emerge. I’m a late 90’s baby and to many I don’t know much, or about the “good old days.” Although I don’t know much, I know enough. There are some people that you are conditioned to know are great, artist that through time will always be legends, Afrika Bambaataa is one of those artist. He is the founding father...

Google Bans Payday And Other Predatory Loan Ads.
(Akiit.com) For more than a decade, broad-based coalitions at both the state and federal levels have united consumer advocates, labor, clergy, civil rights champions and others in calling for an end to predatory lending. Although 16 states and the District of Columbia effectively ban payday lending, the majority of the nation is still subject to triple-digit interest rates applied to debt trap lending.

Ralph Nader Elected Bush, Now He’s Trying to Elect Donald Trump.
(Akiit.com) Ralph Nader is at it again. He’s been conveniently dredged up and trotted in front of a lot of cameras, mics, and reporter’s note pads in recent days. He’s got fresh media shelf life in order to answer one question and beat up on one candidate. The question is can or will Bernie Sanders do a Nader presidential campaign 2000 act and run as an independent when he doesn’t get the Democratic... [Read more of this review]
Donald Trump; The Polls are Wrong, and Even if They Aren’t…
(Akiit.com) Reporters and Donald Trump supporters alike have been touting the results of two new polls showing Trump in a dead heat with his Democrat rival, Hillary Clinton. A Reuters/Ipsos survey finds the two tied with 41 percent of likely voters supporting Clinton to 40 percent supporting Trump. A Quinnipiac University poll has the duo tied in Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Florida. Reuters’ Chris Kahn... [Read more of this review]
How to Get Unstuck!
(Akiit.com) A few years ago, my dad and I were talking about how to get up really early in the morning when you feel like hitting snooze and burying your head under the covers. He said something that always sticks with me on days when I feel like turning back over: “The key is to get your feet on the ground and keep them moving!” he advised. Simple, but true.
Moving happens with a split... [Read more of this review]
