    In this very funny video, impressionist Max Koch plays Tony Soprano meeting Jack Nicholson and Robert DeNiro. He nails all three perfectly, and his impression of Robert DeNiro's idiocy is priceless. BTW, in true Sopranos style, the language in this video renders is NSFW. Max Koch channels TONY SOPRANO, Part III (NSFW)

    Hobart and William Smith Colleges is offering a course next year to teach students how “objectivity” and “meritocracy” function as “white mythologies.” “White Mythologies: Objectivity, Meritocracy, and Other Social Constructions” is a sophomore-level course taught by Kendralin Freeman and Jason Rodriguez, who are sociology and anthropology professors, respectively. "Students will explore how systematic logics that position ‘the West’ and ‘whiteness’ as the ideal manifest through such social constructions as objectivity, meritocracy, and race." “This course explores the history and ongoing manifestations of ‘white mythologies’—long-standing, often implicit views about the place of White, male, Euro-American subjects as the norm,” explains the...

    The University of Pennsylvania Law School will soon become the first in the Ivy League to retain a high-level administrator to promote “social justice” on campus. The new Director of Social Justice Programs will work at the Law School’s Toll Public Interest Center (TPIC), where they will collaborate with students, faculty, and local nonprofits to increase opportunities related to “social justice” for Law students. UPenn activism center: "We believe Trump’s agenda is racist, authoritarian, and corrupt, and it must be stopped." “The Director will design and implement the comprehensive array of programs that will manifest in curriculum for scholars, fellows,...

    A CNN poll last week showed that most Americans think Barack Obama was a better president than Donald Trump has been. The margin was huge: 19 percentage points. Trump supporters will yell “fake news,” but they’ll be wrong. Respondents to the same survey thought Hillary Clinton would have been a better president than Trump, but only by three percentage points. By comparison, she bested Trump in the 2016 popular vote by 2.1 percentage points. The wide preference for Obama over Trump (and Clinton) has little relationship to public attitudes toward policies on taxes, health care or Iran policy. (Obama and...

    The Board of Governors of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has voted to expel actor Bill Cosby and director Roman Polanski from its membership ranks. The decision to remove Cosby and Polanski from the membership was made Tuesday, May 1 at a scheduled board meeting. The move comes a week after Cosby was convicted of three counts of aggravated indecent assault brought against him by Andrea Constand. Cosby has been accused of sexual assault by as many as 60 women, a few of which testified at the emotional hearing. Polanski has been on the lam for 40...
  • [Dumb Vanity]: Could private citizen Trump sue the DOJ/FBI for breaching lawyer/client privilege?

    04/13/2018 12:35:15 PM PDT · by Maceman · 28 replies
    Trump is the President, but he didn't give up his constitutional rights when he assumed office. The recent raid on Cohen's office captured files, records and recordings that predated Trump's Presidency, and his campaign. So couldn't Trump, invoking his rights as a citizen, judge shop (as Democrats always do), and sue the FBI for violating his 4th Amendments rights, as well his statutory rights regarding attorney client privilege? And couldn't he sue the Special Counsel's office, and Mueller personally -- for yuge damages? Imagine tying up Mueller personally with serious legal fees. I know this sounds implausible, and I'm sure...

    Two education professors recently argued that aspiring K-12 teachers who hold conservative views and resist social justice theories may not be qualified to work with children. Erin Miller and Tehia Stark-Glass, both professors at the University of North Carolina-Charlotte, advanced the case in a March 8 article in the journal The New Educator entitled “The Maintenance of Whiteness in Urban Education,” expressing concerns that white conservative teachers will be unable to effectively teach minorities if they do not thoroughly internalize social justice. "Their whiteness seemed to congeal when they perceived the course material as un-American, in contrast with their conservatism."...

    Swedish teenager was attacked at a nightclub after turning away a man who groped her, leaving her face badly bloodied as shown in horrifying snapshots that soon went viral. Sophie Johansson, 19, was partying at Babel in Malmö on Saturday night when an unknown man on the dance floor pulled on her bag. She told Swedish outlet Aftonbladet that when she turned around, the man grabbed her butt and between her legs. She then says she hit him to get him to stop, but he punched her in the face. Hoping to avoid a further escalation, Johansson and her friend...

    President Trump reportedly complained during a Thursday meeting with lawmakers about immigrants from “shithole” countries coming to America. The Washington Post quoted Trump, based on a source who was in the meeting, saying: “Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?” The president was specifically referring to immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador and African countries and a proposal to restore protections to them. The lawmakers in the meeting were Lindsey Graham and Dick Durbin. The Post notes: Graham and Durbin thought they would be meeting with Trump alone and were surprised to find immigration hard-liners such...

    A biology professor from San Jose State University recently argued in several tweets that “chromosomes don’t determine sex.” The tweets were written in response to Texas State Representative Briscoe Cain, who had tweeted a picture of the XX and XY chromosomes as reminder of "how many genders there are." A San Jose State University biology professor recently accused a Texas state legislator of being “bigoted” for tweeting that there are only two genders. “In case you forgot how many genders there are,” Republican State Representative Briscoe Cain tweeted on December 21, attaching a picture of the XX and XY chromosomes....

    UCLA recently hosted a "Muslim American Workshop" where attendees proposed a list of policy suggestions intended to help Muslim Americans. Suggestions included “ban anti-shariah [sic] laws," "eliminate 1st Amendment protections against hate speech," and "ban anti-Muslim President." A recent academic conference on Muslim Americans at UCLA featured calls for “banning anti-sharia laws” and “eliminating First Amendment protections against hate speech.” The University of California, Los Angeles’ Luskin School of Public Affairs hosted the Muslim American Workshop on December 15, where professors from around the country shared research papers and policy ideas. University of Washington-Bothell Professor Karam Dana led the Policy/Hybrid...

    Political correctness meets technology in a new computer program that scans “Star Wars” films for diversity. As reported by Variety, University of Southern California engineer Shri Narayanan and his students “have been developing software that can analyze scripts, identify speaking parts and cross-reference actor names with a race database to breakdown dialogue by gender and race.” “One of our motivations is to see more (diverse) representations, especially those that are facing children,” Narayanan, USC’s Niki & C. L. Max Nikias Chair in Engineering, said. With media, “you create what this sort of norm is, implicitly or subconsciously: that women look...

    The Director of LGBTQI Life at Vanderbilt University says college administrators should directly encourage student protests, even those that involve disrupting university functions. Categorizing protests as either "burner" or "builder" activism, Chris Purcell argues that "burner" protests are sometimes needed "to get the job done," after which administrators can "pursue building strategies." The Director of LGBTQI Life at Vanderbilt University recently argued that student protesters should be “celebrated,” even if they stage sit-ins or disrupt university functions. In an essay for Inside Higher Ed last week, Chris Purcell argues that college administrators should celebrate, reward, and support all student activists,...

    An Indiana judge has taken an unusual step and temporarily barred Starbucks from closing 77 failing Teavana stores in Simon Property Group malls because the real estate giant was less able to handle the financial pain. Starbucks said in July it planned to shutter its 379-store Teavana operation — but Simon rushed to court to block 77 stores in its malls from going dark — claiming such a move by a high-profile tenant could spark other stores in its malls to close. Starbucks, after trying to turn around its stumbling tea chain, said last August it was pulling the plug...

    In the age of Donald Trump, we are all desperately searching for a competent replacement. In the age of Trump, Democrats and even some Republicans are all desperately looking for who will challenge Donald Trump. After researching electoral trends in presidential elections and the candidates themselves, I've picked 10 Democrats who could be strong challengers to Donald Trump in the 2020 election. They are listed in order of my preferences, and I even included some extra candidates since I am expecting the Democratic Primary debate stage in 2020 to be as crowded as the Republican Primary debate stage in 2016....

    Seventh Circuit Judge Richard Posner sees “absolutely no value” in studying the U.S. Constitution because “eighteenth-century guys” couldn’t have possibly foreseen the culture and technology of today. In a recent op-ed for Slate, Judge Posner, a senior lecturer at the University of Chicago Law School, argued that the original Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the post–Civil War amendments “do not speak to today.” “I see absolutely no value to a judge of spending decades, years, months, weeks, day, hours, minutes, or seconds studying the Constitution, the history of its enactment, its amendments, and its implementation (across the centuries —...
