    The DNC has voted not to accept any donations from fossil fuel companies. From HuffPost: The resolution ― proposed by Christine Pelosi, a party activist and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s daughter ― bars the organization from accepting contributions from corporate political action committees tied to the oil, gas and coal industries. The executive committee voted unanimously to approve the motion. “We talk about how climate change is real and climate change is a planetary emergency, what we need to do is stop taking money from the institutions that have created this crisis,” said RL Miller, president of the super...

    Following a major Spanish citys vote to boycott Israel, the leader of Spains third-largest party called the Jewish state a criminal country during an interview aired by public television broadcaster. Pablo Iglesias Turrin, leader of the Podemos far-left party, said this in an interview earlier this week on RTVE. We need to act more firmly on an illegal country like Israel, said Iglesias Turrin, whose party in 2015 won 20 percent of the votes in the general election just one year after its creation. Last week, a motion promoted by a local fraction of Podemos on the city council of...

    The peculiar indifference of UC administrators, police and Jewish organizations. [Editor's note: To help push back against the enforcement of Islamic blasphemy laws on the American campus, support the Freedom Center's campaign Stop University Support for Terrorists.] As Americans, we support everyone's right to freedom of speech and to peacefully protest, but we are also aware that disruption is distinct from protest. Interference with a public event deprives those in attendance of their own right to free speech and assembly. When this line is crossed, protestors become disruptors. In California, disrupting public events is a violation of penal code 403....

    George Washington University President Thomas LeBlanc says he will not consider implementing a divestment resolution passed by the student government in a secret vote. The resolution, which was voted on anonymously, passed Monday evening by a vote of 18 to 6, with six student senators abstaining. Mondays meeting was the Student Associations second attempt to hold a vote on the resolution. The previous vote was cancelled due to a lack of security, whereupon supporters of the BDS bill responded by taking over the student government offices and demanding the vote be rescheduled for the following week. The resolution accuses Israel...

    Before you watch this insanity, which made the social media rounds this week, may I remind you that Senator Barack Obama met privately with, and complimented, this man at an event coordinated by the Congressional Black Caucus -- a disgrace that was deliberately hidden from voters until Obama was safely out of office?  May I also remind you that numerous CBC members have courted this man's support, including the current deputy DNC Chairman, who hasn't been truthful about the nature of that relationship?  As I've previously argued, "minister" Louis Farrakhan is the Left's version of David Duke, in that...

    The defense of free speech has always been a bedrock bipartisan principle. So its unusual to hear a veteran liberal politician excuse campus outrage squads that shout down dissent. But thats exactly what former Vermont governor and Democratic National Committee head Howard Dean did in a recent appearance.. Deans take on this was that there are consequences to free speech. He caricatured Erika Christakiss thoughtful, sensitive letter as an ugly screed mocking snowflake students and defending racist costumes. He also described the protesters as well-behaved, despite their screaming and bullying. ... Dean is hardly alone...progressives on and off campus are...

The list made public Sunday follows up on that legislation and could impact thousands of people if it is enforced. "The boycott organizations must know that the state of Israel will act against them," Strategic Affairs Minister Gilad Erdan...
