This did not happen at the Ogdensburg-Prescott border crossing. It happened near Waddington, NY, which is a small town on the St. Lawrence river, but without a border crossing. It was a random checkpoint, not a border crossing. Cooke’s behavior is combative and inflammatory, but she does have a valid argument.

Negative attention? From where? Perhaps read the piece again. The author is not attacking Jenner, but the societal devolution that everything is fine and good and right (except absolute beliefs, apparently).
Sure. Just Google "Matt Walsh." Odds are you'll hit one.

I hope she – and the other reporters – talked to them anyway. I don’t see that in the story.

Twice our daughter graduated from Nazareth College in Rochester (undergrad and PT graduate) and, what a surprise, Chucky just happened to show up to say a few words at both ceremonies. He’s notorious for this in NY. We could have somehow made it through both commencements without him. Top 10 biggest frauds in DC.

If Ventura really wants to gain his “good name” back, he’ll donate the award to Heroes Project, Lone Survivor Fund, Wounded Warriors – something like that. That would enhance his reputation more than a hundred courtroom victories.

“Voters who cast ballots in the earlier Democratic primary were barred from participating.” Does that mean someone at the polls had to ask for ID (which, of course, is inherently racist)? Sounds like the perfect formula for the RINOcrats.

A Category NOT exceeding 25,000 probably best describes the show’s viewership.

Miss Letts did not create a life, she simply ended one. Sad.

Nice to see where all the union dues are going . . .

@ModerateRep – No. 1, Why are you here? No. 2, I think you mean “martial law.”

Life Imitates Art
Nathaniel Hawthorne, THE SCARLET LETTER, Ch. 23
“The law we broke!–the sin here so awfully revealed!–let these alone be in thy thoughts! I fear! I fear! It may be, that, when we forgot our God,–when we violated our reverence each for the other’s soul,–it was thenceforth vain to hope that we could meet hereafter, in an everlasting and pure reunion. God knows; and He is merciful! He hath proved his mercy, most of all, in my afflictions. By giving me this burning torture to bear upon my breast! By sending yonder dark and terrible old man, to keep the torture always at red-heat! By bringing me hither, to die this death of triumphant ignominy before the people! Had either of these agonies been wanting, I had been lost for ever! Praised be his name! His will be done! Farewell!”
That final word came forth with the minister’s expiring breath.

GoodStuff – You are dead on with that. I thought the same thing. What was (I guess) supposed to be an “awww” spot was, instead, awful.

Wonder how Bill Nye would do against Dr. Stephen Meyer. Amazing interview with Eric Metaxas. It’s worth the time.
Here’s a new drinking game for people who have a drinking problem: Whenever Jay Carney tells the truth, drink. The game lasts throughout the press briefing. Everyone walks away sober. Steaming, but sober.
