Conservatives have come to expect that they might be protested, ridiculed and disinvited when they venture to speak on college campuses, but the penalty for telling students something they disagree with has taken a more violent turn. Buttressed by an ideology that views “hate speech” as violence and its suppression as self-defense, students increasingly are resorting to the destruction of property and assault to keep conservative speakers quiet. Students at Wellesley College made the intellectual case for using force to stifle free speech in an editorial last week, arguing that “hostility may be warranted” against people who are “given the
Brick and mortar colleges and universities, many of which now cost over $50,000 per year, will give way to infinitely cheaper online entities. The only courses I took in college that required physical attendance were natural sciences such as general chemistry and biology. The rest could have been taken electronically. Not then, but now.
These tragically uneducated victims of abusive intellectual indoctrination have a rude awakening in store when they step out into the real world. When they come out from behind their barricades, they´re gonna get the crap slapped out of them.
Can we please have all student´s who borrow tax dollars to attend college sign a moral´s clause that states they will forfeit their education if they commit an act of violence or impede any constitutional right of another on or off any college campus? All monies are to be repaid with interest and credits will be denied for any classes completed. After all, it is our money and we should have conditions on its use.
It´s way past time to put a beat down on these sniveling little bed wetters. They throw them out of college. There are plenty of goo d American loving kids looking for the opportunity to attend college.
Defiant House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said Thursday that she’s maintained marked unity among Democrats, fending off carping from rank-and-file members after yet more election defeats this week. Mrs. Pelosi said flatly she’s not giving up her leader’s post, and said the losses in four special congressional elections this year, which cost the party millions of dollars yet earned no gains in their House ranks, are actually a good sign. “I feel very confident in the support I have in the caucus,” the California Democrat said. She’s been under fire over the last couple days, with some of her own
Texas Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert unloaded on the media and Obama-era holdovers at the Department of Justice on Wednesday after the FBI announced that it was treating last week’s attempted mass assassination of Republican congressmen as “assault” rather than terrorism. Gohmert said that the FBI’s refusal to label the attack as terrorism indicates that there are too many officials from the previous administration in the DOJ and charged that the left-wing shooter, James T. Hodgkinson, was conditioned by “hate-filled propaganda” from the media and some Democrats. (Photo) “It is absurd to state that the shooting in Alexandria last week was,
First Lady Melania Trump had all eyes on her as she stepped out in a black-laced cocktail dress for her and President Trump’s night-in with Vice President Mike Pence and his wife, Karen Pence. Melania wore her take on the Little Black Dress in a sexy Dolce & Gabbana number that was covered in sheer, lace overlay and pointed black leather stilettos. The Dolce & Gabbana dress retails for $2,995.00. Dolce & Gabbana, friends of Melania’s, have become the First Lady’s signature designers as she has worn the duo’s high Italian fashion creations more than any other designer. (Photos) Stefano
Attorneys for Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl want to ask potential jurors in a court-martial for their views on President Trump and whether they voted for him, according to news reports Wednesday. At a pretrial hearing Wednesday, Berdahl´s lawyers submitted the questions to the judge in the case, out of concern that jurors may be swayed by negative comments Trump made in the presidential campaign about the soldier. "The principal issue has to do with ensuring we are able to identify people who have been nominated to be on the court-martial panel — the jury — who are not in a
They have gone 0-4 in the last special elections, and they keep blaming the wrong people and coming up with the wrong reasons for their losses. Here are ten reasons why they keep losing. 1. They have broken the federal budget. We´re still $19.8 trillion in debt, and this makes people nervous. We have to be patient for the GOP to fix the problem. The Dems don´t even seem to believe that there is a problem. 2. They keep promoting the multiplier effect. That is, if the government gets bigger and bigger and keeps spending money, then the economy will
In the late 1700s, the newly independent republic of the United States was continually beset by piracy at sea from four Muslim Barbary Coast states: Algiers, Tunis, Tripoli, and Morocco. The U.S., with limited military resources and staggering debts from the War for Independence, sought to establish secure routes for international commerce to spur rapid economic growth needed to build the emerging country. Yet the U.S. faced constant Ottoman attacks on its merchant ships. American and European ships venturing into the region routinely faced capture of crewmembers, who risked being held as slaves until hefty ransoms were paid. The persistent
Two articles, one in CNN and one in Breitbart. Can anyone spot the difference? From CNN: A police officer was stabbed in the back and neck Wednesday at an airport in Flint, Michigan, and the suspect is in custody and being questioned, according to authorities. The FBI said it believed the attack was an "isolated incident" and is investigating whether it was an act of terrorism. "We are aware of reports that the attacker made statements immediately prior to or while attacking the officer, but it is too early to determine the nature of these alleged statements or whether or not this
The Senate health care bill, being drafted by Republicans behind closed doors, finally came to light. The Washington Post got a draft of the legislation Wednesday afternoon, which was being passed among lobbyists and aides. The bill would repeal most of the taxes that pay for Obamacare, roll back expanded Medicaid coverage under the Affordable Care Act, reshape its subsidies, give states wider latitude to opt out of its regulations and eliminate federal funding for Planned Parenthood. Scroll down for video (Photos) The Senate legislation would link federal insurance subsidies to income, a change from a House-passed bill that tied
Wednesday on Fox News Channel’s “The Story,” Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) said it was concerning that while testifying before the House Intelligence Committee earlier in the day at a hearing on the alleged Russian hacking of the 2016 presidential election, former Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said his department’s offer to help the Democratic National Committee was denied. Partial transcript as follows: MACCALLUM: What struck you most about your conversation with Jeh Johnson today? GOWDY: He is in a unique position to answer those questions. He is looking at what Russia was doing. What was the government’s response in 2016?
Protesters interrupted President Trump’s Wednesday rally in Iowa, but his crowd of supporters responded by drowning them out with a “USA” chant. Trump began his speech in Cedar Rapids by praising Republican victories in the Georgia and South Carolina special elections before offering prayers to House Majority Leader Steve Scalise, who was critically injured last week in the GOP baseball shooting. “I’d like to also take this moment to send our thoughts and prayers to our courageous friend, somebody that I’ve gotten to know very well — Steve Scalise,” Trump said as whistles blew in the background. Protesters noisily interrupted
Former Vice President Joe Biden, speaking Wednesday night at the Democratic National Committee´s annual LGBT Gala in New York, told attendees to "hold President Trump accountable for his pledge to be your friend." Biden received the inaugural LGBT hero award for his advocacy on behalf of lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transgender people, a key voting bloc that supported former President Barack Obama. (Video/Tweet) "The first thing we should do, even though he won´t respond, is hold President Trump accountable for his pledge to be your friend," Biden said, urging the crowd to stay active in politics. "Just because you don´t
Former DNC Chairwoman, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, said Wednesday that neither the FBI nor any other government agency contacted her about the hacking of the DNC’s computer networks, The Washington Examiner reports. Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s claims that she was never contacted by any government agency about supposed hacking of the DNC’s computer systems directly contradicts former DHS chief, Jeh Johnson’s testimony before the House Intelligence Committee earlier Wednesday. The Washington Examiner reports: “At no point during my tenure at the DNC did anyone from the FBI or any other government agency contact or communicate with me about Russian intrusion on the DNC
Turns out…money can’t buy you love. Or a House seat in Georgia’s 6th District. Democrats pulled out all stops in their effort to show that the #Resistance isn’t just about marches and slogans and insulting the president, but also about flipping the House in 2018. They poured tens of millions of dollars into what became the most expensive House race ever, trying to elect 30-year-old nonentity Jon Ossoff to fill the seat of HHS head Tom Price. They cast the race as a referendum on Donald Trump, and a bellwether for 2018. Republicans will be elated with the outcome, and hopeful
On June 8, Lisa Durden, a producer, filmmaker and media commentator, arrived at Essex County College in Newark to teach her speech class. It was the closing days of the summer session and Durden was already set for the fall semester. She was listed as a returning adjunct professor to teach mass communication and popular culture and two effective speech courses. Two days before, she had appeared as a political commentator on the Fox News show "Tucker Carlson Tonight," invited to give her opinion as to why Black Lives Matter organizers held a Memorial Day event in Brooklyn for black people only. When
Republican Karen Handel staved off a furious challenge from Democrat Jon Ossoff on Tuesday in a race to represent a suburban Atlanta seat in Congress, as the GOP and President Donald Trump avoided an embarrassing defeat in the most expensive U.S. House contest in history. A former Georgia secretary of state, Handel emphasized her experience and roots in Georgia’s 6th Congressional District to defeat Ossoff and keep a seat that’s long been held by Republicans in GOP hands. She becomes Georgia’s first female Republican member of the U.S. House.
MISSISSAUGA, Ont. -- Video of a woman demanding for her son to be seen by a "white doctor" at a walk-in clinic in Ontario has gone viral. CTV Toronto reports the four-minute argument was recorded by a patient in the waiting room at the Rapid Access to Medical Specialists clinic on Sunday. In the video, an employee is heard explaining to the woman that a "white doctor" would not be available until 4 p.m. to see her child. To which she responds, "So you´re saying in the whole entire building there isn´t one white doctor? You´re telling me my kid has chest
Republican Karen Handel has defeated her upstart Democratic challenger in a Georgia runoff election. Handel, an experienced politician and former Secretary of State for Georgia, emerged on Tuesday night with a narrow win over 30-year-old Jon Ossoff. Incomplete returns show she is on track to receive about 53 per cent of the vote. Her narrow victory in Georgia´s 6th Congressional District allows Republicans a sigh of relief after the hotly-contested race, which is considered the most expensive in US House history. The special election was considered one of the first tests for Donald Trump´s controversial presidency, with voters given a chance to put another
Jon Ossoff was on a trajectory to defeat Karen Handel narrowly, poised to deliver a humiliating blow to the White House in a race billed as a referendum of Donald Trump’s early months in office. Then the Republican voters in Georgia’s 6th Congressional District unexpectedly showed up in droves. Pollsters say sky-high turnout drove Handel, the GOP nominee, to a nearly 4-point victory on Tuesday, despite most pre-election surveys showing Ossoff with a small-but-shrinking lead. Mathematically, a 4-point loss for a Democratic House candidate in a district that has traditionally elected Republicans by wide margins is an encouraging result for
(Video) - The State Department has opened a formal inquiry into whether former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her aides mishandled classified information while she was the nation’s top diplomat, Fox News has learned. Despite being under investigation, Clinton and her staffers still have security clearances to access sensitive government information. The department’s investigation aims to determine whether Clinton and her closest aides violated government protocols by using her private server to receive, hold and transmit classified and top-secret government documents. The department declined to say when its inquiry began,
Democrat Jon Ossoff conceded the Georgia special election runoff to Republican Karen Handel Tuesday night, even as he argued that "fight goes on" for Democrats even after their latest election defeat. "This small community in Georgia, which has become the epicenter of politics — sometimes to my chagrin — for months now, it´s had nothing to do with me, it never has," Ossoff told the crowd at his campaign´s Atlanta watch party, soon after news outlets declared Handel the winner of the pivotal special election. "It´s about you. It´s about an extraordinary community at an extraordinary moment in history." Democrats had
A city on Mars with a million inhabitants could be achievable within 50 years, the space entrepreneur Elon Musk has forecast, as he laid out plans to turn mankind into a multi-planetary species. The SpaceX founder warned that humans would need to venture away from Earth to avoid a ‘Doomsday event’ and our ‘eventual extinction.’ But he said that a huge Martian city could be established this century, which would not just be an outpost, but a fully functioning society with ‘iron foundries and pizza joints.’
Ed Morrissey may be on vacation but he’s still keeping his ear to the door of American politics. He popped up on Twitter this morning, searching for his dictionary to look up the definition of “chutzpah.” The reason for his apparent confusion was a rather off-putting interview with Georgia-06 Democratic candidate Jon Ossoff conducted by NPR’s Rachel Martin. The subject of the massive, record-breaking amount of cash dumped into this race couldn’t be avoided, so Martin asked Ossoff to weigh in. He did so, but his take on the subject rang a bit hollow to say the least. (Emphasis added
As a resident of Hollywood, CA, I didn´t exactly see crying in the streets, but I did "feel their pain," as the saying goes. According to (where else?) Variety, the local entertainment industry went in big time in support of Jon Ossoff, the jejune sometime documentarian, in his quest to win the election in Georgia´s sixth congressional district. Rosie O’Donnell [ je suis shockay], Jane Fonda, Jessica Lange, Sean Daniel, Connie Britton, Sam Waterston and Kyra Sedgwick are among those who have donated to Democrat Jon Ossoff’s campaign, while others have been participating in phone banks to get out the vote and
Despite receiving an invitation to meet with President Trump, members of the Congressional Black Caucus have reportedly chosen to decline, per Politico. Both Trump and the Congressional Black Caucus met in March to discuss issues important to CBC members, yet many in the Caucus felt as if little to no progress has been made since that meeting three months ago and that any subsequent meeting would be merely lip service. One Democratic aide illustrated the thinking of some in the Congressional Black Caucus saying, “No one wants to be a co-star on the reality show.” Former “Apprentice” star Omarosa Manigault,
