Ranking The State Capitols

That’s Capitols, not Capitals. Here, the Geography King gives us his assessments of all 50 states’ Capitol buildings, and ranks them based on his architectural and design preferences. Not so shocking, but the biggest states — including New York, California and Texas — all stand out and rank quite high. They have large populations and they have spent hefty sums building lavish seats of government. But none of them come out on top.

You’ll have to watch to see which state wins, but we’ll give you a clue. Here, in alphabetical order, are the three highest-ranked state Capitols: Connecticut, Iowa and Pennsylvania. Also placing among the finalists: West Virginia, whose state Capitol has the most awesome domes!

The End Of Women’s Sports

Selina Soule was one of the top five female high school sprinters in Connecticut, headed toward national laurels and perhaps a college scholarship in her future. But that all came crashing down when she and other females were forced to compete against biological boys, who call themselves transgender girls. Now, women aren’t just losing their races, they’re losing their chances to compete at all.

The two biological males in Connecticut went on to win 15 state championships in two years and, shockingly, their winning times would not have qualified them for the boys state meet. When Soule voiced concern about the fairness of the competition, the media and school officials called her a sore loser, telling her to “run harder.”

But facts are facts. The biological changes that males go through during puberty are significant, giving them a decided edge in speed and strength over females. “The reason we have girls sports in the first place,” says Soule, “is to give females with talent, hard work and dedication, and equal opportunity a chance to shine and be recognized.”

So, is this just another intrusion by the Left and their appetite for political correctness? As always, you be the judge. Here’s more with Soule on PragerU.

Freeloader U.

If you haven’t noticed, colleges are getting filthy rich with the massive subsidies and tax breaks they receive from government–all at the expense of students and taxpayers. To put it in perspective, the college business model is actually totally dependent on taxpayers.

And rest assured that their spending habits have gone through the roof. Take Yale University, which pays no property tax on its dining hall, much to the chagrin of surrounding restaurants in New Haven, Conn., and even boasts its own pizza oven in addition to a luxurious golf course on campus. Farther west, the University of Utah has used some of its riches for a student crying room! You just can’t make this stuff up.

A closer look at government tax breaks reveals that colleges and universities are doing quite well, thank you. Yale boasts a $31 billion endowment, while fellow Ivy League school Harvard’s fund is at $40 billion. Yet taxpayers keep doling out the moolah in the way of cash grants and more than $1 trillion nationwide in student loans. It’s how colleges have gotten away with jacking up their tuition at four times the rate of inflation.

Inez Stepman, an education policy researcher at the Independent Women’s Forum, says almost half of the students don’t graduate in six years and end up with an $80,000 debt without a degree. “They’re not making wiser citizens,” she says. “They’re making citizens who hate their country.”  Here’s more with Stepman and consumer journalist John Stossel.

Bunkers, Bombers and Boxes

After police raided an underground bunker in West Germany discovering child pornography and illegal and synthetic drugs for sale, Vatican police have followed by raiding the Holy See’s Secretariat of State and its Financial Information Office, seeking documents and electronic devices believed involved in suspected financial irregularities. And in the United States, the FBI raided the offices of State Sen. Martin Sandoval, D-Illinois, also removing boxes and a bag marked EVIDENCE. In Pursuit of Truth discusses these far-flung raids and wonders aloud if they might be connected. Also covered here: The crash of a B17 Flying Fortress at Bradley Airport in Windsor, Conn. This was one of only 10 of the historic planes still flying.

The [Deep State] has just exposed everything: the lying, cheating and their agenda. More and more evidence is produced that Joe Biden & Hunter Biden profited in Ukraine and China. Kurt Volker, former special representative for the Ukraine, testified Thursday and it was a nothing burger. The call to have U.S. Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, resign is getting stronger and stronger. Brennan panics. US Attorney John Durham wants to interview him. The main target is always last in an investigation. Flynn’s attorney is building the case to free Flynn. She has more evidence up her sleeve so stay tuned. Trump and the patriots are pushing the information out to the public. The public is hearing: Ukraine, China and other countries, corruption, treason and crimes. The mainstream media is trying to defend it all but it is failing. It’s only a matter of time. More from the X22 Report.

Conservative pastor Robert Jeffress says the Democrats worship Moloch, the Pagan god of child sacrifice. “Apparently the god they worship is the pagan god of the Old Testament, Moloch, who allowed for child sacrifice,” said Jeffress. “The God of the Bible doesn’t sanction the killing of millions and millions of children in the womb. I think the god they are worshiping is the god of their own imagination.” Also, in this episode of RedPill78, we hear about a secret message from FLOTUS. Also, America’s two-tiered justice system: one tier for the average Joe while rich elites can get away with murder.

Trans Women Sweep Awards

Two transgender women took first and second place this year in Connecticut’s indoor track-and-field championship last weekend – and by “transgender women,” I mean two biological guys with testosterone who just stole awards from biological girls. More evidence the Democrats mean to hurt all of us — men and women. Everyone except their biological monsters. More from Brittany Hughes at MRCTV.

Liz Wheeler says the fact these trans athletes won so easily underscores how men have a different, and biological, superiority over women. It’s unfair to allow these men to enter female competitions, and stating that has nothing whatsoever to do with discrimination, but rather, recognizing biology. More from One America News.

Some Pretty Dumb Laws

After festival revelers made a complete mess of a 1996 festival with Silly String in Southington, Connecticut, town officials clamped down in a hurry. The partygoers sprayed Silly String on police, marching bands and cheerleaders, prompting the community to ban the sale of Silly String in shops. This is just one of 15 dumb laws around the world uncovered by the adventurous Danger Dolan. Are they dumb laws, or just a bit silly? Check out the other 14 and decide for yourself.
