    A professor at American University recently taught students that right-wing terrorism in the United States is actually more of a pressing threat to American citizens than Islamic terrorism based on the number of attacks, not the death toll. Professor Erin Kearns said Americans seem most afraid of Islamic terrorists, but that so-called right-wing extremists here have actually committed a higher number of attacks. “I would guess that a handful of you are probably like, ‘Oh, it’s some radical of Islam, people who are using that to justify their violence,’” Kearns had said during a May lecture regarding what she contends...

    A group of students at American University labeling themselves the “AU Justice League” have taken credit for ripping down anti-abortion flyers on campus. The campus’s College Republicans put the flyers up Wednesday night, and called for the defunding of Planned Parenthood. But by Thursday morning, the vast majority of the flyers had disappeared. It didn’t take long to figure out why. At 12:30 a.m., the Twitter account @AUJusticeLeague tweeted a photo of dozens of crumpled-up flyers with the caption “We had some fun with the college republican posters tonight. Let us know if we missed any guys!” The incident was...

    The Susan Rice bombshell at least explains why the Democrats won’t stop babbling about Russia. They need a false flag to justify using national intelligence agencies to snoop on the Trump team. Every serious person who has tried to locate any evidence that Russia attempted to influence the 2016 election — even Trump-haters at the New York Review of Books and Rolling Stone magazine — has come away empty-handed and angry. We keep getting bald assertions, unadorned with anything resembling a fact. ... Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, as well as his associate, former British ambassador Craig Murray, both say that...

    Fidel Castro’s recent death evoked conflicting assessments of his legacy from world leaders, but college students are no more prepared than prime ministers to justify their support for the Cuban dictator. President-Elect Donald Trump, for example, referred to Castro as a “brutal dictator,” whereas Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau called him a “remarkable leader.” In order to gauge millennial feelings on the passing of the authoritarian Cuban leader, Campus Reform asked students at American University which political figure they viewed more favorably: Castro or Trump. While several students identified the repressive elements of Castro’s regime, such as jailing and murdering...
  • Colleges Reject ‘The Vagina Monologues’ Because ‘In Order to Be a Woman, You Must Have a Vagina’

    The Vagina Monologues is “antiquated” because it suggests “that in order to be a woman, you must have a vagina,” an American University student has claimed. Kendall Baron, a junior and a staffer at the Women’s Initiative, criticized the famous feminist play in an email first obtained by Campus Reform. The play “represents a binary representation of gender,” she wrote redundantly.

    Once again U.S. special operations forces attempted to rescue two American University professors kidnapped in Kabul last month. The Mission was unsuccessful because the White House withheld its approval despite Intelligence reports pinpointing the location at which the hostages were being held. The Two professors – one American, the other Australian were kidnapped during the Taliban attack on the American University. Disguised as police, the attackers killed twelve people and likely kidnaped the educators for ransom. After the release of Bergdahl and the ransom payment to Iran, the Taliban or the Haqqani network seized on the opportunity to grab a...

    After a week of chaos leading up to the event, Breitbart Tech editor Milo Yiannopoulos’ lecture at American University was interrupted by nearly 150 protesters and screaming Black Lives Matters student activists. Oh Thursday night, Yiannopoulos took the stage at American University, for another stop of his “Dangerous Faggot Tour.” Although many of the visits on the tour have attracted minor controversies, students at American foreshadowed their large-scale protest of Yiannopoulos’ lecture by vandalizing and destroying posters in the week leading up to the event....

    Dozens of professors from American University’s Washington College of Law signed on to a letter saying the phrase "all lives matter" is white supremacy. Dozens of professors from American University’s Washington College of Law (WCL) openly condemned an unknown student as a white supremacist for posting a sign with the catchphrase “All Lives Matter” on a faculty member’s door. “The ‘All Lives Matter’ sign might seem to be a benign message with no ill intent, but it has become a rallying cry for many who espouse ideas of white supremacy and overt racism, as well as those who do not...

    It's a dilemma that many working moms face: What do you do when your child is too sick to go to school but you have a can't-miss obligation at the office? For Adrienne Pine, a single mom and an assistant professor of anthropology at American University in Washington, D.C., the choice seemed clear. When her infant daughter woke up with a fever on August 28, the first day of Pine's class on Sex, Gender and Culture, Pine decided to bring her baby along. Everything went smoothly for the first part of the 75-minute long lecture.

    President Obama is "guaranteed" to win re-election in 2012, according to Allan Lichtman, a professor at American University in Washington, D.C. Lichtman's formula predicts the outcome of the popular vote without considering candidate opinion polls, campaign strategies or political events. Lichtman's system is based on 13 political conditions that he calls "keys." The keys favor the incumbent president's party: When five or fewer of them are false, the incumbent party wins the presidency. If six or more are false, the opposition party wins. In 2007, Lichmann predicted that any Democratic candidate -- Hillary Clinton, John Edwards, or Barack Obama --...

    The Franking Privilege by: Bethany Stotts, April 23, 2009 Frankly scandalized: that’s how some American University seniors felt when they learned that their 2009 commencement speaker would be none other than Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.). Congressman Frank is scheduled to speak to the graduating class of AU’s School of Public Service. “Rep. Barney Frank, D-Mass., has a record as a key player in our current economic crisis, which is almost as offensive as his endless refusal to accept responsibility for it--hardly the marks of a public servant,” wrote four AU students in an April 16 op-ed to the AU Eagle....

    Fairness Doctrine Unfairly Promoted by: Bethany Stotts, May 01, 2008 Believe it or not, a conference at American University provided strong representation for last summer’s anti-conservative study, “The Structural Imbalance of Political Talk Radio.” In the study, the Center for American Progress (CAP) and Free Press authors conclude that talk radio has an unfairly high conservative bias, with conservative ideas monopolizing 91% of radio programming aired by the nation’s top five broadcasters...(snip) Now the CAP and Free Press representatives are again pushing for “structural” changes to alter the “balance” of progressive and conservative programming.

    Does the Fairness Doctrine Still Roar? by: Bethany Stotts, May 01, 2008 America continues to face obstacles to free speech touted in the name of the “public interest.” While well-intentioned by some, the encouragement of paternalistic government intervention in the broadcast of news and other media threatens the same repressive consequences as the now defunct Fairness Doctrine. A recent conference, “Does the Red Lion Still Roar?,” debated the ongoing legacy and relevance of the 1969 Supreme Court case Red Lion Broadcasting Corporation v. Federal Communications Commission (FCC). The unanimous court ruling upheld the FCC’s authority to impose “equal time” and...

    The American University in Kosovo (AUK), about to witness the commencement ceremony of its second graduating class, expects its latest alumni soon will be making their marks as entrepreneurs and leaders, and will help develop the economy of Europe's newest country. The 110 students are graduating from what AUK President Chris Hall describes as a unique institution in Kosovo. Thanks to a close partnership with the Rochester Institute of Technology in New York state, their degrees carry international recognition. AUK is the country's only private nonprofit university and also the only institution that conducts its classes in English. "That fact...

    Scandalous Decoys by: Malcolm A. Kline, April 22, 2008 When legendary director Alfred Hitchcock wanted to build suspense and throw off moviegoers he would distract them with what he called a MacGuffin, which Webster’s defines as “an object, event, or character in a film or story that serves to keep the plot in motion despite usually lacking intrinsic importance.” Arguably, some of the wayward college presidents fired by boards of directors in recent years fit this description. For example, the former president of American University, Benjamin Ladner, racked up about half a million dollars a year in expenses that included...
