Oberlin College Faces ‘Negative’ Rating by Credit
Agencies Due to ‘Declining Enrollment’

New reports suggest that social justice haven Oberlin College is facing a myriad of financial issues. Oberlin College in Ohio is notorious for its over-emphasis on social justice politics. It’s the alma mater of social justice icon Lena Dunham, who once published an art video that celebrated the “extinction of white men.” In 2015, Oberlin students accused their school of “cultural appropriation” over accuracy issues with certain cultural dishes that were offered in the dining hall. In December 2017, a local business claimed that Oberlin administrators slandered them by calling them racist for prosecuting alleged shoplifters. Now, Oberlin College is facing “negative”

Oberlin, a "social justice" haven, is reaping the whirlwind, learning that actions have consequences.

The pool of college aged youngsters is shrinking. That is a fact.
College is becoming more and more expensive, with increases in tuition and (often hidden) fees going up much faster than the rate of inflation. That is a fact.
Parents who are rational, and want to save money so that their children can afford to go to college, are choosing to have fewer children, being logical in their approach to the matter.
On-line colleges and courses are suspect, in my opinion. They are cutting into the cash and enrollments of traditional residential colleges.
And as colleges fight for the declining pool of potential students, they are simultaneously offering wonderful financial aid packages to certain minority applicants.
Diversity is worshipped on campus, but diversity costs money. Who pays? Students of pallor.

Cut the government spigot of student loans and the colleges will reform themselves. They get the tuition money whether the student continues to attend or not, let alone graduate.

It´s only the beginning of a coming wave of financial woes and closures. We the taxpayers will not be paying for the hordes of Latin Americans and Muslims who are expecting free college at our expense when we can no longer afford to send more than one of our own children to school.

Not to mention the ever-declining quality in the education being offered. The party is over for the academics.

About ninety five percent of colleges are next to worthless with respect to useful education. These could easily assimilate those who would have been indoctrinated at Oberlin if it should crash, an unlikely possibility.

I’m going to miss Lord & Taylor like mad when the Fifth Avenue flagship closes next year. It isn’t only because of the unlikely bargains I scored on its often-deserted men’s floors — a red vinyl Perry Ellis-label jacket, marked down from $79.95 to $39.95 that strangers hilariously mistake for Armani, and a wool winter coat as good as any for $49.99. I won’t miss the once-charming but more recently cheap-looking holiday windows that weren’t worth waiting on line for. But Lord & Taylor, like every big department store, offered a welcoming civility that softened the city’s rough edges. New

President Donald Trump is beginning his first trip to England as president. The trip has been mired in controversy over the cooling of relations between President Trump and English Prime Minister Theresa May. However, as the Trump presidential limousine pulled into Blenheim Palace in Woodstock, England, the reception could not have been warmer. The president and prime minister shook hands, but all eyes were on Melania. The first lady stepped out of the vehicle looking very much like a Disney princess. She wore a golden floor length gown. According to the White House pool, “FLOTUS was wearing a yellow floor

No one is more upset about Trump´s second Supreme Court nomination than the liberal media ... unless it´s the entertainment elites in Hollywood and Manhattan. These liberals couldn´t see the flagrant hypocrisy surrounding their sentences as they unloaded their fear and loathing on television and Twitter. For example, notice the white male late-night comedians mocking Trump for naming a white male to the court. On ABC, Jimmy Kimmel joked Trump "narrowed his candidates down to three — but, in the end, Kavanaugh was the white man for the job." Stephen Colbert pulled a Bingo card from his pocket on CBS. "I

Judges Revive Catch-and-Release

Administration officials are releasing thousands of migrants with young children into the United States, as required by judges, marking the return of catch-and-release policies for migrants with children. Migrants with children are being released with ankle monitors so they can be tracked by border officials. Officials admitted that the ankle-monitors do little to help enforcement officers find and repatriate the vast majority of the migrants who lose their asylum pleas, and that a large percentage of the first set of migrants’ children are not being reunified by their parents because of concerns about criminal activity. Also, some of those released parents reportedly

Rep. Black Introduces ‘Zero-Tolerance’
Bill for Illegal Immigration

On July 10, Rep. Diane Black (R-Tenn.) introduced the Zero Tolerance for Illegal Entry Act, which would make it a felony to cross the U.S border illegally and would mandate an E-Verify system for American employers to ensure that they are not hiring illegal immigrants. The law would make illegally crossing the border for the first time a felony instead of a misdemeanor and would up the penalty from six months or less to a year and a day or more. (The full text of Section 275 as it currently stands can be found here.) The proposed law would also mandate the

U.S. President Donald J.

I probably — if not partially — won an election because of immigration,” President Trump said, observing that the issue of mass, uncontrolled migration is inspiring voters in Europe — and the United States

Reuters contended on Wednesday that Chinese media coverage of the trade dispute with America has been relatively muted, and it was by design because the government has instructed its media outlets not to say anything that would enrage U.S. President Donald Trump. The claim was sourced to “several sources with knowledge of the matter” who claimed to have seen a “memo based on a set of directives issued verbally by government officials.” “When exposing and criticizing American words and actions, be careful not to link it to Trump and instead to aim it at the U.S. government,” Chinese state media organs were

On July 5, the U.S. Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania ordered that the federal government is permanently prohibited from forcing Geneva College, a Christian school in Pennsylvania, to pay for abortive services included in the Obamacare mandate. The federal court also found that former President Obama’s Affordable Care Act (ACA) “constitutes a violation of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993 (‘RFRA’).” The court’s permanent injunction and declaratory relief order states that: “IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that defendants, their respective successors in office, their agents, officers, employees and all others in active concert or participation with them are hereby PERMANENTLY ENJOINED

Prince Charles and Prince William reportedly ‘snubbed’ the US President during his visit to Britain - leaving the Queen to meet Donald Trump alone at Windsor Castle. The royal father and son apparently shared their desire to not take part in the arrangements during informal discussions regarding the president’s four-day tour. Trump’s trip was not a state visit and so only the Queen greeted the president and his wife Melania. However even on working trips dignitaries expect to see more members of the royal family than only the Queen. When deciding which royals to include in the meeting, senior courtiers shared concerns about

The indictment Friday of 12 Russian military officers for the election hacks against the DNC and Hillary Clinton’s campaign lends a surprising new detail to the 2016 election interference timeline: The Kremlin’s hackers apparently still maintained a foothold in the DNC’s network four months after the Democrats announced that they’d locked the intruders out. Until today, the story of the DNC hack ended promptly on June 14, 2016, when the Democrats went public with the intrusion in the pages of the Washington Post, and Crowdstrike, the security firm hired to respond to the breach, published a detailed technical account. Today’s indictment confirms

Anyone who has ever been to a recycling plant is invariably surprised at how dirty and nasty America’s favorite green activity really is. Trucks dump the material on a long conveyor belt, where a few dozen people pick through by hand what is supposed to be recyclable material, but more and more often is just plain old dirty trash. The recyclables used to be worth something more than bragging rights about liberal moral superiority. Plastic bottles, newspapers, and cardboard, were just a few of the favorites you could ship to China by the ton and make a few bucks along the

Americans are encouraged to embrace diversity and be culturally sensitive to those who have flouted our laws and invaded our nation. Meanwhile, illegal aliens arriving in America have no such requirement. Instead, trespassing tribes relocate, and when they do, rather than assimilate, they transfer habits and activities indigenous to the countries from whence they migrated. Thus, Americans suffer from illnesses that are easily traceable to third-world bathroom habits (TWBH) and lack of hygiene in the developing world. It´s not news that illegals work in restaurants as food-handlers. These restaurant workers migrate from

The left-wing terrorist organization that calls itself Antifa is “freaking out” over a proposed law that would enhance penalties for anyone who “injures, oppresses, threatens, or intimidates any person” while wearing a disguise or mask. Throughout our country, and for a number of years now — and primarily because the establishment media fantasizes about, promotes, enflames and approves of the violence committed against the right (naturally, HuffPo opposes the unmasking law) — Antifa has been allowed to run rampant, committing countless acts of violence against everyday, peaceful supporters of President Donald Trump.

Watching FBI agent Peter Strzok battle with Congress, my initial reaction was pure anger. His repeated, arrogant insistence that he had done nothing wrong despite tons of evidence to the contrary convinced me he deserved immediate firing — if not the firing squad. Gradually, though, anger gave way to amazement as Strzok grew increasingly combative and condescending. Given his predicament, the sneering and smirking were stupid, and yet he persisted. Who is this jerk, I wondered, and how in the hell did he get to be a big shot at the FBI? And why are taxpayers still paying for the privilege of
