The Rise of the Campus Brown Shirts

A fusillade of attacks by students and faculty on commencement speakers and honorary degree awardees at four of our better known schools — Smith, Haverford, Rutgers and Brandeis — has tarnished this year’s commencement season beyond any in recent memory. Speakers as distinguished as Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund Christine Lagarde, former Berkeley Chancellor Robert Birgeneau and former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice have been forced to withdraw even as Ayaan Hirsi Ali, one of the most courageous fighters of oppression on the planet, had to walk from her honorary degree from a university established in the shadow

Progressives are NOT compassionate and liberal and inclusive. They are Fascist and will not tolerate anyone that threatens their dangerous ideology. Their ends justify their means and THAT should tell you how perverse their ethics really are!

The problem for liberal academics (I know, redundant) is that the traditional university model is starting to collapse. Their answer to financial mismanagement has been to repeatedly raise tuition (sound familiar?), while continuing to add worthless degree programs. Some universities are already starting to fold, and others are having to lay off faculty. I wish them luck in the real world.

In the mean time, we are starting to see the rise on virtual campuses where people can gain real knowledge without the cost overhead of indoctrination classes, unending fees, outrageously priced parking permits, and insufferable loons teaching the classes.

Dr Ray Stantz:
Personally, I liked the university. They gave us money and facilities, we didn´t have to produce anything! You´ve never been out of college! You don´t know what it´s like out there! I´ve *worked* in the private sector. They expect *results*.

new Georgia Senate polling
Washington Examiner, by Blake Seitz    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 6/10/2014 12:27:34 PM     Post Reply
Poll results released by SurveyUSA on Monday bode ill for Democratic Senate nominee Michelle Nunn in Georgia. In head-to-head matchups against the two Republican candidates who qualify for a July 22 runoff election, Nunn comes out behind. According to the SurveyUSA poll, Nunn trails Rep. Jack Kingston, R-Ga., by six points among likely voters; she trails businessman David Perdue by five points. SurveyUSA found Kingston ahead of Perdue by 11 points, possible indication that high-profile endorsements of Kingston are having the expected effect.

Former United Nations Ambassador John Bolton is making his first two Senate endorsements of the cycle for Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and Rep. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.), who are running in two races that will be critical to control of the Senate this fall. “After over seven years of Harry Reid’s failed leadership in Washington, America needs change. Having worked with Mitch McConnell, I know he is the Senate Majority Leader we need to lead Congress in the right direction,” Bolton said in a statement shared first with The Hill. “With a Senate victory in Arkansas from Congressman Tom Cotton, a

President Obama’s senior White House adviser Valerie Jarrett held a series of meetings with illegal immigrant activists during Obama’s first term and concluded that “They are the best that we have.” Jarrett, a Chicago-era mentor to Obama and wife Michelle, is currently fighting to pass immigration reform legislation, in her words, “this summer.” “I had met, maybe, a year-and-a-half ago, with about Four Dream Act kids,” Jarrett said in a 2012 conversation with Walter Isaacson at the 2012 Aspen Ideas Festival, video of which was posted by The Aspen Institute in 2014.

Todd Woodruff said he will always think of his daughter Amanda as a young girl, baby teeth glistening in a hopeful ear-to-ear smile. It was that girl who grew into a kind teenager who once made him drive to a neighboring town to get help for an injured bird. On Monday the image of the child was supplanted by a more recent picture of Amanda Miller -- born Amanda Woodruff -- on her Facebook page, heavily made up as a cartoonish vamp. Amanda, 22, and her husband, Jerad Miller, 31, have been identified by police as the couple behind the shooting rampage

“Be careful how you make those statements, gentleman.” Barack Hussein Obama had been president of the United States for all of two months. He was lecturing the titans of American finance who were struggling to explain to him, a man with no meaningful business experience, how high salaries are necessary if American companies are to compete for talent in a global market. “The public isn’t buying that,” scoffed the president. He wasn’t talking about the public, though. “My administration,” he warned, “is the only thing between you and the pitchforks.” The pitchforks: that’s his public. So begins Andrew McCarthy’s new

With $26 million in donations from the Detroit Three automakers, the Detroit Institute of Arts said Monday it has now raised 70% of the $100 million it has promised toward the grand bargain. The grand bargain brings together the equivalent of $816 million from national and local foundations, the DIA and the state of Michigan to spare the museum’s collection from a possible sale while easing cuts to city pensioners during Detroit’s bankruptcy. Even amid uncertainty about whether retirees will accept the terms of the grand bargain, city and state leaders celebrated the Detroit Three’s joint announcement at the DIA.

Senate Republicans poised to block
Democratic student loan bill

A Democratic plan to lower student loan interest rates and pay for it with a tax increase will go nowhere in the Senate, Republicans said Monday. The Senate this week is expected to vote on legislation sponsored by Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., and endorsed Monday by President Barack Obama, that would allow students to refinance their loans at interest rates ranging from 3.86 percent to 6.41 percent. The legislation dovetails with Obama’s Monday signing of an executive order that will greatly expand the federal student loan forgiveness program. While Obama did not discuss the cost of his executive action, the Warren proposal has

The problem with mass murderers is it’s so hard to make them fit a narrative. Remember the retractions from people like The Nation’s Eric Alterman and HuffPo’s Elise Foley after a DHS report tying Jared Loughner to a white advocacy website turned out to be just “brainstorming”? Then when even the Anti-Defamation League had trouble claiming Loughner was an anti-Semite, we blamed Sarah Palin, because what kind of adult wouldn’t fly into a homicidal rage at the sight of bullseyes on a map? Then when even that strained credulity, the culprit became “anti-government, pro-gun, xenophobic populism.” You know, the stuff all those hayseeds

End, don’t mend Obamacare
Washington Times, by Editorial    Original Article

Running out the clock can be wise strategy on the football field, but it’s rarely smart politics. Democrats take the limberneck when they look at the latest poll numbers for November and the conventional wisdom, which is not always wrong, is that the race to control Congress is for the Republicans to lose. That’s if the landscape remains undisturbed, of course, and that’s a very big if. With such an advantage, Republicans will find it hard to resist the urge to stand on the sidelines, avoid big plays, and watch Democratic fortunes implode. The latest CNN/ORC poll shows the public

Obama Administration: Bergdahl

The last question asked at Monday night´s closed-door briefing of members of the House of Representatives was a simple one: Who made the decision to transfer five top Taliban officials held at Guantanamo Bay to Qatar in exchange for the return of the Taliban´s lone American POW, Army sergeant Bowe Bergdahl? According to Buck McKeon, the chairman of the House Armed Services committee, the Obama administration´s briefers told he gathered House members that the person responsible for the decision to make the deal was not President Obama but Chuck Hagel, the secretary of defense.

In Benghazi chapter, Clinton

Discussing the most controversial part of her tenure at the State Department in her new book, "Hard Choices" – the attacks on the U.S. compounds in Benghazi, Libya, on the night of September 11, 2012 – former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton seems to gloss over the fact that Marines were not sent amid a worsening security situation in Libya, and were only sent after the attack. The passage, which occurs in chapter 17, titled “Benghazi: Under Attack,” may bring even more attention to the State Department’s failure to provide sufficient security to American officials stationed in a dangerous place.

The cameras came on, and America stopped to watch. O.J. Simpson was in the back of a white Ford Bronco, former college and National Football League teammate Al Cowlings behind the wheel, and police cars were trailing slowly behind. Around 95 million viewers tuned in, reality playing out on jostling helicopter cameras, on handmade signs draped onto overpasses of Los Angeles freeways, Friday night programming interrupted on televisions across America. “White, black, immigrants who were from different races, women and men, rich and poor — and everyone was glued to the television,” said Charles Ogletree, a professor at Harvard Law School

Hillary Clinton, who recently raked in $5 million dollars in speaking fees in 15 months, recounted to Diane Sawyer the sad tale of her former destitution, telling her, “We came out of the White House not only dead broke but in debt.” According to Clinton, she and her husband, who has made over $100 million since leaving the White House, “struggled to, you know, piece together the resources for mortgages for houses, for Chelsea’s education, you know, it was not easy.” But, as Clinton’s story goes, the two hard-working, middle-class millionaires somehow managed to put food on the table in

It’s no secret that the administration of President Barack Obama has encouraged cities and states not to pick up illegal aliens. They even took the state of Arizona to court to prevent them from doing what the federal government refuses to do. If it’s no secret to us, it’s entirely reasonable to assume it’s no secret to the millions in Mexico and Central America who would like nothing better than to come north and illegally cross the border in order to pay a visit to the folks — also illegal.

Texas State Sen. Wendy Davis suggested that the Republican stance on immigration is a racist one, and that conservatives simply don’t like “people who don’t look like them.” “You need look no further than what happened in Arizona with their anti-immigration bill and the withdrawal of tourism and the impact to their economy as a consequence of what ideological thinkers did to that state,” the Democrat said at a Human Rights Campaign PAC fundraiser in Austin, The Daily Caller reported. Miss Davis is running for governor against Republican Attorney General Greg Abbott, who is leading by double digits in most polls.

The Obama administration gave the parents of Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl extraordinary insider access to the military’s hunt for their son by having them take part in a series of secure video conferences with senior commanders as well as White House and State Department officials. A former government official involved in American hostage issues said he had never heard of giving a family such access and questioned whether sensitive information could have been conveyed to Robert and Jani Bergdahl and somehow leaked out. A family spokesman said he knows of no such breach. Soon after Sgt. Bergdahl went missing in

Senator Dianne Feinstein sharply contradicted Obama administration claims about the details of the deal in which five Taliban detainees were exchanged for captured Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. Feinstein, a California Democrat who chairs the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, joins a chorus of Republicans, veterans, families of deceased soldiers, and other critics of both the deal for Bergdahl’s release and the administration’s failure to give advance notice to Congress before releasing detainees from Guantanamo Bay, as required by a 2013 law. In an appearance on CBS’ Face the Nation, Feinstein noted that after the release of the five Taliban officials

Since its first introduction into our lexicon, the definition of the word metrosexual has changed several times. At first it was used to describe young, urban males who were more interested in fashion, grooming and appearance than the traditional masculine male. Sexuality ran the gamut from officially gay, straight or bisexual. Then an article in Salon.com by Mark Simpson narrowed it down to the following: "He might be officially gay, straight or bisexual, but this is utterly immaterial because he has clearly taken himself as his own love object and pleasure as his sexual preference." In his book Male Impersonators,

Gail Ernst mostly uses his Facebook page — which is public — to rally supporters to his wife’s Senate bid. Gail Ernst is a prominent surrogate for his wife, making official campaign appearances touted on Joni Ernst’s official campaign Facebook page.

Retailers are starting to push a new trend in menswear: the short suit. The ensemble looks like a regular suit from the waist up, with a sport coat over a button-down shirt and sometimes a tie or bowtie. Instead of trousers, however, the suit´s bottoms are cropped at the knee. J. Crew, Topman, Asos, and Barneys are among the retailers selling the short suit this season. They may be taking cues from fashion icon Pharrell Williams, who donned tuxedo shorts to the Academy Awards earlier this year.
