Crucial Advice on Your Branding - Web Presence and Social Media
By Karen Leland

The Week of April 4th is Explore Your Career Options Week. If you want to keep your career options open, be aware that a strong personal brand on social media can help or hurt. According to a recent poll, 52% of employers use social networking sites to research candidates, and 35% of those same employers reported that they were less likely to interview job candidates who didn’t have an online presence. In addition, 51% use search engines to dig up details on a job candidate. So that picture of you chugging back a beer on your Facebook page may not be such a good personal brand move for your future career prospects. Take advantage of all your career options by making sure your social media is up to par with these five easy, but often overlooked, tips. [more...]

Scalia - There Should Have Been an Autopsy
By Dave Bego

All of the details surrounding Judge Antonin Scalia’s death seem odd, starting with the location of his passing, which occurred at the ranch of liberal Obama supporter John Poindexter who just happened to discover Scalia lying dead in his bed with a pillow over his head. Even more strange is that his death was declared by natural causes and no autopsy was performed, despite the fact that Texas law requires one in instances when someone dies under less than obvious circumstances. There is no question that Scalia’s passing was a major windfall for big labor bosses and the Democratic Party in a tough election year. Many believe that his passing was not coincidence and that it was planned. [more...]

The Great American Sovereignty Giveaway
By Crista Huff

The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade agreement is not about “free trade.” It’s about the U.S. giving up sovereignty (autonomy; self-governance) to a global governing body called the Trans-Pacific Partnership Commission, and to a global court system that will challenge many decisions made by the U.S. Congress and our states’ legislatures. If the U.S. Congress ratifies the TPP, Congress will cede authority over myriad areas of American business — and citizens’ lives — to global authorities."

Students Apologize for Offensive Image that Offended No One
By Joe Messina

The Black Law Student Association (BLSA) at Cornell law school sent out an apology for a supposed “offensive image” that no one was offended by. I guess they “thought” someone should have been offended by it and issued the apology. That was thoughtful of them. The image featured an Asian man singing karaoke, with the text “ABBA REE I CAN FRYYY.” (That’s a reference to the R. Kelly song “I Believe I Can Fly.”) But, really, why are we at this point of being so overly sensitive in the first place that we have to self-censor? [more...]

Believe in Bernie
By Daniel Greenfield

When you can't think of a rational reason to support a senile Socialist who wants to impose a failed economic policy on America, there's always pure faith. Believe. It hasn't ever worked. It won't ever work. Just believe. Ignore over a century of pure human misery. [more...]

How Putin is Out-Maneuvering Obama in Syria
By Joseph Klein

In what has become a monthly ritual, the United Nations Security Council received a briefing on March 30th regarding the very dire humanitarian conditions in war-torn Syria. Stephen O’Brien, the Under Secretary General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator, delivered the latest assessment. He noted as positive developments a respite in violence in some parts of the country since the cessation of hostilities came into effect one month ago, and some limited progress on access for the delivery of humanitarian aid to besieged and hard-to-reach areas. However, he said that many of the 4.6 million people in need “still remain outside our reach due to insecurity and obstructions by the parties.” [more...]
