Bad and Good Olympic Boycotts

Let people choose for themselves. No one knows how hard it is. No one knows what we’re doing every day and what the challenges are.

93-Year-Old President Carter: Russians Didn’t Alter Election, Obama Didn’t Deliver, We Didn’t Vote For Hillary

Spot the odd one out... One of these six people says that Russians did not alter the election outcome, or vote for Hillary. In a lengthy interview with The New York Times recently, 93-year-old former President Jimmy Carter cut loose on some painful establishment 'facts'. As DailyWire.com's Joseph Curl reports, The Times decided to play up the fact that Carter would love to go over to North Korea as an envoy. But the Times is steadily proving how out of touch it is -- and how it no longer...
