Sonny Bunch – Progress? Nah!

The Washington Free Beacon, a project of the 501(c)4 Center for American Freedom, is a nonprofit online newspaper that began publication on February 7, 2012. Dedicated to uncovering the stories that the professional left hopes will never see the light of day, the Free Beacon produces in-depth and investigative reporting on a wide range of issues, including public policy, government affairs, international security, and media criticism. Whether it’s exposing cronyism, dissecting the relationship between the progressive movement and the mainstream media, finding out just who is shaping our domestic and foreign policy and why, or highlighting the threats to American security and peace in a dangerous world, the Free Beacon is committed to serving the public interest by reporting news and information that currently is not being fully covered by other news organizations.

The Beacon’s editor in chief is Matthew Continetti. Sonny Bunch is the managing editor. Bill Gertz is senior editor.

In short? American Right Wing Magazine. Gotcha! [Read more...]

Cruel and Unusual

Oklahoma botched an execution. This is not news but I can help explain why it got botched.

They are the feeders for our professional football clubs. Many of these players in the Under 16s and under 18s are often salaried or given a sizeable sum of money for playing.

This stops sport from being linked to university. It stops the University from earning money through sports and making it profitable to concentrate on sport before it concentrates on education. We do have University sports and University teams, it is just that these teams are often just “normal students” who happen to be good at sport. The University Boat Race for example is not crewed by ringers given seats solely for the purpose of boat race victory but by young men (and now women) who engage in the University Societies and choose to participate in sports.
