Ben Shapiro – 3 pm Sat

Ben Shapiro is editor-in-chief of DailyWire.com, and host of “The Ben Shapiro
Show,” the top conservative podcast in the nation, and a leading conservative
speaker on college campuses, consistently defending free speech and open
debate. Shapiro is the author of seven books, including The New York Times
bestseller, “Bullies: How the Left’s Culture of Fear and Intimidation Silences
America” (2012). Shapiro is also a nationally syndicated columnist since age 17,
and a graduate of UCLA and Harvard Law School.

Rush Limbaugh says Shapiro isn’t just “content to have people be dazzled by his
brilliance; he actually goes out and confronts and tries to persuade, mobilize,
motivate people.” Glenn Beck calls Shapiro a “warrior for conservatism, against
those who use fear and intimidation to stifle honest debate. I’ve never known him
to back down from a fight.” Sarah Palin says that Americans should “consider
Ben’s advice about how we must stand up and push back twice as hard against this bullying”.

Sean Hannity says to join Ben Shapiro and “fight back!” against liberal bullying.
Michelle Malkin says Shapiro is “infused with the indomitable spirit of his friend
and mentor Andrew Breitbart”. Even the liberal Washington Post, in the
aftermath of Shapiro’s devastating destruction of Piers Morgan on national
television, conceded that Shapiro is a “foe of extraordinary polemical agility.”

Less Than Compelling

Usually us curmudgeons like to go on and on about how sports, music and movies were better in “our day”.  I think that you can add Congressional hearings to that list as well.  That’s what I was thinking during both the James Comey and Attorney General Jeff Sessions testimony the last couple of weeks.  While…

Un-settling the Science

While James Comey was sucking up all the oxygen in the room, there was a pretty major science announcement last week.  It turns out that the human species might be much older than we originally thought.  Fossils found in Morocco place our earliest ancestors on the planet as far back as 350-thousand years ago.  Until…

Open Week

Welcome to US Open week here in Wisconsin.  Many of you will be venturing down to Erin (or Hartford or Richfield–I’ve seen all three used to describe the location of the course in stories) for practice rounds the next three days–or for the competitive rounds Thursday through Sunday (and possibly Monday–more on that later).  Here…
