As reported by Big League Politics yesterday, a public boycott of Jimmy Kimmel’s show reached 30,000 petition signatures. But just 24 hours after that article was released, the number has gone up to over 150,000 petition signatures, which is more than double their goal of 50,000 signatures.
If you would like to read the petition in its entirety, or sign it, you can reach it through this link.
As was reported yesterday, the boycott began after Kimmel insulted Melania Trump for her part in the annual Easter Egg Roll at the White House. Kimmel tried to insinuate that the First Lady was trying to escape from the White House, and insulted her accent as she was reading a children’s book.
This boycott is making it clear that a large segment of the population stand with the First Family.

Ted Cruz Beats Jimmy Kimmel in Charity Basketball Game
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) beat late night television host Jimmy Kimmel 11-9 in a charity one-on-one basketball game that came down to the wire.
“Can you be embarrassed by a picture of someone else’s dad? Because I am,” Kimmel said on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” after Cruz was spotted a Houston Rockets basketball game last month wearing a t-shirt over a polo shirt. “When Ted arrived at the Toyota Center, some of the fans mistakenly thought it was Grandpa Munster Bobblehead Night. I mean, look at him. He looks, and I’m not joking here, he looks like a blobfish.”
Cruz responded by challenging Kimmel to a basketball game.
All right, Big Guy…you talk a good game. You besmirched my support for the Houston Rockets,” Cruz said on Twitter. “So let’s settle this man-to-man: one-on-one, hoops (or ‘ring-ball,’ if you prefer). The loser gives $5k to the (non-political) charity of the winner’s choice.”
The two played at Texas Southern University.
“The crowd is fired up,” Cruz tweeted before the game began, attaching a video of the arena.

The game was initially supposed to be played to 15, but the pair shortened it to 11 because it was taking so long.

“You’re a good sport,” a bitter Kimmel said after a crushing defeat. “I still think you’re a terrible senator.”
Ivy League Racism: Harvard Rates Asian Applicants Lower in ‘Likability,’ Other Traits
Court documents unsealed Friday show that Harvard College consistently ranks Asian applicants lower on several personality traits than it does students of different ethnicities in its admissions process.
“Harvard’s admissions officials assign Asian Americans the lowest score of any racial group on the personal rating—a subjective assessment of such traits as whether the student has a ‘positive personality’ and ‘others like to be around him or her,’ has ‘character traits’ such as ‘likability … helpfulness, courage, [and] kindness,’ is an ‘attractive person to be with,’ is ‘widely respected,’ is a ‘good person,’ and has good ‘human qualities,’ say the court documents.
The Ivy League giant has been sued by Students for Fair Admissions, an activist group that is fighting the negative externalities of Affirmative Action, which is supposed to protect minorities against discrimination.
“It turns out that the suspicions of Asian-American alumni, students and applicants were right all along,” Student’s for Fair Admissions attorneys said in the court documents. “Harvard today engages in the same kind of discrimination and stereotyping that it used to justify quotas on Jewish applicants in the 1920s and 1930s.”
It has long been known that Affirmative Action policies negatively affect certain racial sub-groups, particular East Asians. A 2005 Princeton University study shows that Asian American students, on average, must score 270 points higher than Latino students, and 450 points higher than black students on the 1600 point SAT in order to be admitted to the same universities.
If Harvard were to admit students strictly based on merit and without consciousness, it would have a much higher percentage of Asian students.
But Students for Fair Admissions argues in its lawsuit that Harvard is actively taking measures to ensure against that. The group argues that Harvard has implemented a “soft-quota” of “racial-balancing” aimed at Asian students, which amounts to institutional discrimination in violation of civil rights law.
“Thorough and comprehensive analysis of the data and evidence makes clear that Harvard College does not discriminate against applicants from any group, including Asian-Americans, whose rate of admission has grown 29 percent over the last decade,” Harvard said in a statement.
Harvard failed to address the fact that the Asian applicant pool has grown more than 40 percent during roughly the same time period while other racial applicant groups has stayed approximately the same.
The school has previously defended itself by claiming that standardized test scores are not the only factor taken into consideration when admitting a student. That defense is meaningless in light of the fact Asians are scoring demonstrably lower on subjective personality assessments conducted by Harvard admissions employees.
The irony is palpable. Ivy League schools are the hotbed for social justice babble against perceived racism. But the racism that is right under their nose – blatant discrimination against a certain group of applicants solely on the basis of the immutable characteristic of race – not only goes unnoticed, but it rather defended.
LEAK: Ben Shapiro Sponsor Smears Charlie Kirk, Says TPUSA ‘Could Inflict’ ‘Permanent Damage’
First reported by Paul Joseph Watson, a club for college conservatives which exclusively sponsors Daily Wire founder and avowed NeverTrumper Ben Shapiro’s college speaking tour, issued an internal memo with a directive to steer young conservatives away from another popular group for conservative students.
“Although it runs counter to our instincts to advise students against becoming involved with other conservative organizations, students deserve to be warned about TPUSA,” said a leaked internal memo from Young America’s Foundation (YAF).
Turning Point USA (TPUSA), founded by Charlie Kirk, is perhaps the most well-known, and certainly the most rapidly growing campus club for young conservatives. The leadership of the group, including firebrand Candace Owens, is known to support President Donald J. Trump.
YAF, on the other hand, exclusively sponsors NeverTrump ringleader Ben Shapiro’s college lecture tour.
Here is part of the the leaked memo:
“Kirk founded TPUSA with no college experience,” the memo says. “He has taken some classes, but has not graduated. His focus has always been on building his own brand, not strengthening the Conservative Movement.”
YAF is obviously concerned with building its own brand too. If the group was not worried about its brand losing value, it would not have put out a directive to avoid TPUSA. Apparently, YAF supports the free market only when it is winning. As Milton Friedman, one of the greatest free market economists ever to walk the earth once said, “Society runs on individuals pursuing their own self-interests.”
“The silence of conservative leaders enabled Kirk to build TPUSA at a fast pace,” the memo says. “The long-term damage TPUSA could inflict on conservative students and the Conservative Movement can no longer be ignored.”
The “damage” YAF is referring to is the “America First” brand of Republicanism made popular by Trump. YAF is surely looking to protect the neoconservative movement – one that supports “conservatives” like Bill Kristol, the entire Bush family, and of course Shapiro. This brand of conservatism has failed to conserve anything. It has lost on every issue that is supposedly important to “conservatives,” including but not limited to: small government, government spending, gay marriage, abortion, gun rights, and immigration.
Positive results in some of these areas under President Trump seem to have YAF hot and bothered. Never mind what the free market of ideas wants, YAF needs to retain its control so it can churn out the next generation of National Review-reading neocons who will elect President Nikki Haley (Globalist-SC) in 2024. Then the establishment will be able to breathe a sigh of relief and go back to business as usual. Is it any wonder these people sponsor Shapiro as their mouthpiece?
Worth noting, Shapiro was the keynote speaker at TPUSA’s Student Action Summit in December. Perhaps TPUSA flew too close to the sun by hosting YAF’s young star, and YAF panicked.
YAF can dream all it wants. The NeverTrump establishment is breathing its last breaths, never to be revived.
