United Negro College Fund accepts
$25 million from Kochs, tells Big
Labor to get over it

Washington Examiner, by Sean Higgins

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 7/10/2014 8:51:04 PM

Calling it guilty of a "profound betrayal of the ideals of the civil rights movement," the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees announced this week that was severing its partnership with the United Negro College Fund. Why? Because UNCF has accepted donations from conservative philanthropists the Koch brothers, and Dr. Michael Lomax, the fund´s president, spoke at a Koch-sponsored event. Lomax told AFSCME to get over it. "UNCF has over 100,000 donors with a wide range of views, but they all have one thing in common: They believe in helping young students of color realize their dreams of

Poor insane Dingy Harry will be very upset. It really is sick that the ideology of those in that union is so twisted and radical they don´t want what is best for the college.

Not too surprising really. The Koch brothers support education for personal betterment, a meritocracy.

Unions support mob rule and a thuggocracy and this letter and AFSCME´s withdrawal of support are a prime example. UNCF is about education and AFSCME wants to make it a political enforcer instead.

No wonder unions are on the endangered species list. Too stupid to live.

Washington Free Beacon, by Adam Kredo    Original Article

Duke University has hired as the new director of its $3 million Islamic Studies Center a controversial Iranian-American professor whose scholarship has come under fire for anti-Israel bias and who once used a picture of dead Jews in Nazi death camps to illustrate his writing on the Palestinians. Omid Safi, a former professor at the University of North Carolina, was installed this week by Duke as the new director of the school’s Islamic Studies Center (DISC), which was handed $3 million specifically for the directorship position. Safi, whose writings on Islam have been criticized as faulty and “utopic” by other scholars, celebrated

Howard Stern says things other entertainers dare not discuss. That typically involves breast size, lesbian encounters and other titillating topics. This week, Stern said something almost unheard of in celebrity circles. If you´re anti-Israel you´re also anti-America. Stern took a caller who wondered if Stern might change his tune on Israel given the current fighting in the Middle East. Stern wasn´t having it. "Israel´s at no fault," he says. "Jews get enough s**t all over the world ... Jews are the indigenous people of that area," he says. "The Arabs don´t even want those Palestinians .. nobody wants them." The

La Raza President and CEO Janet Murguia said it sickened her to hear Americans against illegal immigration chanting "USA! USA!" at protests around the country. Singling out the Murrieta demonstrators during her keynote address at La Raza´s annual conference in Los Angeles on Monday, Murguia accused them of having "cloaked their hatred in patriotism" by shouting "´USA! USA!´ again and again." "It made me angry," she said. "In fact, I was outraged." Murguia demanded that the estimated 11 million illegal immigrants who are currently here receive amnesty and said the road to the White House for Republicans goes through the Latino community and

House Speaker John Boehner accused President Obama of flip-flopping on the border crisis and of being AWOL on the issue. Boehner explained that he continues to discuss the issue with House members, but that it wasn’t helping that the White House was sending uncertain messages on changing the 2008 law. “The administration started earlier this month by signaling some openness to changes in the 2008 law to accelerate the process of returning these children to their home countries,” Boehner said. “Now the president and his team have apparently flip-flopped.” President Obama has been gone for most of the week on a series of

Fusion anchor Jorge Ramos bashed proposals to deport the minors illegally crossing the border and Texas Governor Rick Perry’s plan to send National Guard troops to the southern border. In an appearance on Tuesday’s The O’Reilly Factor on the Fox News Channel, Ramos said “I don´t think any government should be in the business of deporting endangered children. That´s not the American way, that´s not the Christian way.” He agreed that the US cannot take in every child who comes from a dangerous region of the world, but also argued that “These children are not a concern for the United

MCALLEN, Texas--Teenagers caught illegally crossing the U.S.-Mexico border are being transported via plane to states around the nation. One such state is Massachusetts, where a foster care agency is currently seeking foster parents to take the minors in. Lutheran Social Services, located in Worcester, Massachusetts, is "the only program in the New England states that assists refugee and migrating youth exclusively." The organization seeks out individuals, couples, and families willing to foster illegal immigrant minors from Latin America. A spokeswoman from Lutheran told Breitbart Texas that foster parents receive financial

Washington – After several weeks in which the influx of tens of thousands of undocumented children illegally crossing the border into the United States has dominated the headlines, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush wrote an op-ed about the issue, calling for a change in how the children are handled after they are arrested - and also urging his fellow Republicans not to use this as an "excuse" to abandon comprehensive immigration reform. His Wall Street Journal opinion piece that published Wednesday evening is similar to the statement he released to CNN last week and is just the second time he´s

Breaking on Capitol Hill is the news that Iraqi officials began requesting almost a year ago for the US to carry out drone strikes against ISIS – but the requests were shot down by the White House. That stunning revelation came during a hearing on the situation in Iraq this morning. The Hill reports: During a hearing on the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, House Foreign Affairs Chairman Ed Royce (R-Calif.) said the administration knew six months ago that the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS or ISIL) had established armed camps, staging areas and training grounds in Iraq’s western

Legalized, Not Prosecuted: Illegal

The U.S. government not only failed to prosecute an illegal alien who stole the identity of his dead baby son—who had collected SSI before he died—but granted the father legal status to work in the United States. This one-time illegal alien, the Office of Inspector General for the Social Security Administration believes, fraudulently used his son’s Social Security Number for at least three years. Yet, he was not prosecuted, according to the IG’s office, because his case did not meet the prosecutorial guidelines of the U.S. attorney for New Jersey. In fact, this case might never have come to light had the IG

HOUSTON, Texas--While the Obama Administration has largely expressed surprise at the sharp increase in illegal immigrants from Central America this year, the Health and Human Services (HHS) budget for processing unaccompanied foreign minors has exploded in recent years, raising questions about whether the administration could have foreseen, or did foresee, the crisis. After being apprehended by U.S. Customs and Border Patrol, many illegal immigrants are then put into the custody of HHS where they receive a myriad of taxpayer-subsidized benefits including housing, food, vocational training, education, and even legal

Texas Governor Rick Perry went on Hannity tonight to discuss the illegal immigrant crisis at the US southern border. Perry shared these shocking numbers on the current crisis. “Sean, there have been over the course of the last five years, since the fall of ’08, over 203,000 individuals who have come into Texas illegally who have been booked into our county jails. Those individuals have accounted for over 3,000 homicides and over 8,000 sexual assaults. We can’t afford to wait for Washington to secure this border. We’ve had enough.”

President Obama told Democratic donors Wednesday night that most Americans don’t have time to think about the details of the Benghazi terrorist attack or the problems with Obamacare. Speaking at a fundraiser at the Los Angeles home of “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Scandal” creator Shonda Rhimes, the president took his usual shots at the Republican Party, suggesting its members are focused on the wrong issues and frequently “obfuscate and they bamboozle and sometimes don’t say what’s true.” And because people are not familiar with the intricacies of many public-policy issues, Republicans can get away with such obfuscation, he said. “The Republican

High-ranking U.S. officials said Wednesday that not only are Sunni radicals with the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant “worse than al Qaeda,” but that the group has a message for the president: “We’re coming for you, Barack Obama.” Brett McGurk, the deputy assistant secretary of state, told lawmakers at a House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing that ISIL may have “changed its name,” but that it’s still al Qaeda.

I received a call from my sons’ school in March telling me that my oldest needed to be picked up early. He had been given a one-day suspension because he had thrown a chair. He did not hit anyone, but he could have, the school officials told me. JJ was 4 at the time. I agreed his behavior was inappropriate, but I was shocked that it resulted in a suspension.

In scandal after scandal in the Obama administration, President Obama has said he didn’t know about the problems until he heard it on the news. But the president changed his tune about his supposed ignorance at a Democratic fundraiser near Seattle on Tuesday night. Mr. Obama told supporters that he doesn’t watch the news because, “Whatever they’re reporting about, usually I know.” That contrasts with the explanations that the president and his aides have given from scandals in the past few years ranging from long wait times and deaths at the VA, to the IRS targeting tea party groups, to the

Illinois Sen. Dick Durbin on Tuesday urged Walgreen Co. to reconsider a possible move of its headquarters to Switzerland to lower its U.S. tax bill. In a letter to Walgreen Chief Executive Gregory Wasson, Durbin said the company could face a backlash from its customers. “I believe you will find that your customers are deeply patriotic and will not support Walgreen’s decision to turn its back on the United States,” Durbin wrote. “Nearly all of your $2.5 billion in profits earned last year were from sales to U.S. taxpaying customers.” The senator ended his letter with a twist on Walgreen’s

A year after news of the Monica Lewinsky scandal broke, former First Lady Hillary Clinton allegedly told a Pulitzer-prize winning journalist that it was former President Bill Clinton’s abusive mother that caused his unfaithfulness and sex addiction, a new book claims. That journalist was Lucinda Franks and while her latest book, “Timeless: Love, Morgenthau, and Me,” doesn’t have much to do about the Clintons, the part that does offers never before reported information from a 1999 interview with the former First Lady. The New York Daily News obtained parts of the book a month before its scheduled August 2014 release.

While our current secretary of state John Kerry is under fire for sarcastically joking about Israel’s “pinpoint operation” in Gaza, one former secretary of state echoed those sentiments during an appearance on CNN Tuesday afternoon. Speaking to Wolf Blitzer, Madeleine Albright said she thinks Israel is “overdoing” it with its offensive into the Gaza Strip and losing some of its “moral authority” in the process. “I do think the point has to be made, if rockets are being shot at Israel, that Israel does have a right to defend itself,” Albright said. “But the bottom line is the question of proportionality.” Blitzer singled out her use of the word

Colchester – Experts estimate there are nearly 300 adult loons living on Vermont´s lakes and ponds, up from just a couple dozen 30 years ago. On Saturday, more than 200 volunteers spread out across Vermont for the annual loon survey. The results of the survey are trickling in, but Eric Hanson of the Vermont Center for Ecostudies and the coordinator of the Vermont Loon Conservation Project, said there are many more birds now than just a few years ago. He said 15 years ago there were around 100 loons. In 1983, biologists counted only 29. "It is a decent, stable population. I'm hoping that actually things do start to level out.

If you’re headed to Capitol Hill with a cause, it helps to be a Kennedy. For Robert Kennedy Jr., scion of America’s most storied political family, all it takes is his name to arrange face-to-face meetings with two powerful Senators.
