Flier contended in a commentary in the Quillette that social pressure on the university is influencing its conclusions about the research.... (more)

NEWSMAX — The Mexican man charged with abducting and killing an Iowa college student was known for years on the dairy farm where he worked by another name: John Budd.

NEWSMAX — Parkland shooter Nikolas Cruz's birth mother was a violent criminal and his half-sister is behind bars for attempted murder of a police officer, The Miami Herald reported Wednesday. Up until recently, the history of Cruz's birth family was sealed by statute, but now it could be used to keep him off Florida's Death Row for allegedly killing 17 students and teachers when he opened fire at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in February....

WASHINGTON TIMES — Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh sat through seven hours of shrill protests and Democratic warnings that he represented a legal apocalypse if confirmed to the Supreme Court -- then tried to defuse those complaints, promising Tuesday to be a careful judge and "team player" with the other justices....

NATIONAL REVIEW — Americans are divided on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh as the first day of his confirmation hearing begins on Tuesday. A slight plurality, 40 percent, say the Senate should confirm President Trump's nominee to replace former Justice Anthony Kennedy, while 36 percent think he should be denied a seat on the court, according to a Gallup poll that was released on Tuesday and that was taken from August 20 to 26....

WASHINGTON TIMES — President Trump's former campaign adviser Roger Stone spent Labor Day vilifying John McCain in a pair of social media posts, denouncing the recently deceased Arizona senator as treasonous and corrupt.

ALAN KEYES — Judge Denise Casper has ruled against a Christian's access to a program that routinely hoists privately owned flags over a city building, concluding that other flags are acceptable because they're not religious. "The city's policy of excluding non-secular flags is viewpoint neutral because it excludes religion as a subject matter of speech on the flagpole....... (more)

CLIFF KINCAID — The Catholic Church would not be able to function as a criminal enterprise without the financial contributions of its members. Unless Catholic parishioners restricted their contributions to the local poor, their largesse was at least partly going toward underwriting the activities of pedophile priests and cover-ups through the Catholic bureaucracies in Washington, D.C. and Rome. Judge Brett Kavanaugh, a Catholic, should be asked about this growing scandal during his Supreme Court confirmation hearings. Has he been implicated in the scandal through his donations to the church?... (more)

JOHN FUND — The past week has featured so much extravagant praise of John McCain that Jill Abramson, the former editor of the New York Times, had to admit "McCain would cringe over some of the glowing tributes pouring in."... (more)

PJ MEDIA — As the fall elections approach, it's clear that the Left side of the aisle is getting nuttier by the day. The public spectacles of the two funerals, Aretha Franklin's and John McCain's, brought forth the usual characters from our long-running American sitcom-cum-political soap opera, including a lecherous Bill Clinton, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, and Louis Farrakhan in Detroit; and the leading lights of the Permanent Bipartisan Fusion Party, including George W. Bush, Barack Obama and Joe Lieberman, in Washington, almost all of whom seemed not to have the dearly departed on their minds, but their bete noire in the White House, Donald Trump.... (more)

WASHINGTON EXAMINER — Huma Abedin, a longtime aide to Hillary Clinton, tweeted for the first time in more than two years to honor the late Sen. John McCain on Sunday.

NATIONAL REVIEW — The litany has been repeated so often that it's easy to recite: The walls are closing in on Donald Trump, person x or y or z is going to bring him down, it's only a matter of time before he is caught or exposed or loses his base of support and driven from public life. The phrases sound out from our cable channels. We see them in newspaper headlines and in our Twitter timelines. This time Trump has gone too far. The end is near. Take that, Drumpf!... (more)

ROBERT KNIGHT — The "progressives"' game plan to re-acquire power in Washington and make it permanent has been shockingly obvious for some time: Import millions of illegal immigrants, hook them on government aid and turn them into voters -- legally or illegally. Two Democrats running for Congress in Texas have come out for decriminalizing illegal immigration, along with Beto O'Rourke, who is running for Ted Cruz's U.S. Senate seat. Virtually all Democratic office holders oppose voter ID laws.... (more)

BYRON YORK — Obama appointee Sally Yates was acting attorney general under President Trump for just 10 days -- from Jan. 20, 2017 until Jan. 30, 2017 -- but by any measure they were consequential days. Even now, two issues from Yates' brief tenure are still of interest to congressional investigators. One was the series of events that led Yates, in charge of the Justice Department, to reject the president's executive order temporarily suspending the admittance into the United States of people from some Muslim nations....

NATIONAL REVIEW — It had to happen sometime. The Southern Poverty Law Center has made so many vile, unjustified, hysterical, and hateful accusations over the years, it was bound to pay a price. When it did, the bill due was $3.375 million. Such was the amount the SPLC agreed to pay the British Muslim Maajid Nawaz and his think tank, the Quilliam Foundation, after smearing them in a "Field Guide to Anti-Muslim Extremists."... (more)

PJ MEDIA — In an interview this week, Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò challenged journalists to investigate what happened to the "cache of documents" Benedict XVI delivered to Pope Francis after his election.

JOE KOVACS — Perhaps it's a lesson in simple economics: Don't enrage your customers, especially with politics. In the wake of the June incident in which White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders was asked to leave The Red Hen Restaurant in Lexington, Virginia, because she works for President Trump, the local area is suffering a serious financial slump....

WASHINGTON EXAMINER — Big companies like Google, Apple, and IBM are no longer requiring applicants to hold a college degree. This is a significant change. Historically, employers have required a college degree whether or not it was necessary to do the job. Is this because colleges are no longer teaching the needed skills, or because there are so many job openings to fill that standards are dropping? Could it be that vocational training and self-taught skills are enough for certain jobs in the modern-day economy?... (more)

WORLDNETDAILY — An explosive new Ivy League university study is being suppressed because it concludes that today's exceptionally rapid growth in cases of transgenderism among children and teens is very likely a result of "social contagion."

ART MOORE — Republican Congress members who questioned Bruce Ohr behind closed doors Tuesday learned the former top Justice Department official had regular contact in 2016 with Andrew Weissmann -- who is now Robert Mueller's top deputy -- regarding the dubious, anti-Trump dossier of unverified claims that became a major premise for launching the special counsel investigation....
