  • Seven students punished for 'blockade' of conservative speaker

    Claremont McKenna College has suspended five students and placed two others on “conduct probation” for their roles in physically blockading a conservative speaker this spring. In April, a group of roughly 170 students of Claremont McKenna, as well as outside participants, led a successful blockade of the Athenaeum and the Kravis Center, preventing audience members from listening to a speech by conservative commentator Heather Mac Donald. "We reject exclusion and ad hominem attacks as barriers to learning." The school announced Monday that it had imposed sanctions on seven of those students following the completion of a conduct investigation that had...

    President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign has poured hundreds of thousands of dollars into various Trump-owned properties since the beginning of 2017, according to the organization’s latest filings with the Federal Election Commission. The filings show the organization, Donald J. Trump for President, Inc., has spent over $100,000 on various products and services in Trump family properties in Washington, D.C., New York, and Las Vegas. The largest expenditures are for commercial space in Trump Tower on Fifth Ave. in Manhattan, the flagship of the Trump family’s sprawling business empire. The campaign leases offices for approximately $40,000 per month, totaling just over...
  • New Chicago Rule: NO High School Graduation Without Government-Approved "Life Plan"

    (SNIP) . . . In two years no Chicago high school student will be permitted to graduate unless he or she has received and returned a letter of acceptance from a two-year or four-year college (nothing like increasing the already pumped-up demand for inflated and useless college degrees). Alternatively, a student must have a letter of acceptance from the US military – you know, to embark on all those undeclared non-Wars the US has conducted for so long, and which don’t inspire blow-back in any way. Or, a student can show a letter of acceptance into a trades-apprenticeship program or...

    The Federal Election Commission (FEC) is looking to target right-wing media outlets under the guise that they could’ve helped Russia interfere into our presidential election, reported The Washington Examiner’s Paul Bedard Tuesday. The commission will decide at this Thursday’s meeting whether or not to investigate websites like the Drudge Report, Breitbart and others on the right for violating election spending rules by allowing advertising on their Facebook pages by Russian entities. The call for investigation was spearheaded by the FEC’s Democrat commissioner, Ellen L. Weintraub, who has been trying to accomplish this for months. In May, she told Politico, “I...
  • [Vanity]: Did anyone watch Hannity's interview with GW Bush tonight?

    07/04/2017 8:05:27 PM PDT · by Maceman · 70 replies
    I turned on Hannity and saw that tonight's show was dedicated to interviewing GW Bush. I'm a Hannity fan and usually watch his show, but I didn't watch tonight because I didn't have the stomach to listen to Bush. Just wondering if anyone watched it, and if so, what Bush had to say about Trump and what he is facing, and about the issues facing our nation today. Anyone?

    Shariah law is like a mysterious “other” for most Westerners, who may know of its intolerance of other religions and its criminal codes that call for stoning adulterers and the cutting off of limbs for petty thieves. But few know there is a portion of Shariah that includes a thriving area of finance — deals for real estate and business transactions taking place all over the world with Arab money. President Donald Trump’s pick to head the FBI, Christopher Wray, surely knows something about this segment of Shariah. Wray is a litigation partner at King & Spalding, which is one...

    TMZ ^ | 6/2/17 | Unknown
    Kathy Griffin's offensive against Donald Trump Friday apparently fell on deaf ears ... because the only remaining venue that would allow her to perform has just pulled the plug. We've learned Kathy's concert at the Uptown Theatre in Napa scheduled for June 17 has been canceled. This follows 6 other cancelations, including bergenPAC in New Jersey which canceled hours before Kathy's news conference. The Uptown Theatre cancellation is especially significant because the decision was apparently made after she took the mic with her lawyer. The Uptown folks said on Wednesday the show would go on, but they clearly had a...

    WASHINGTON — President Trump’s first federal budget proposal calls for spending billions of dollars on the military and border security while imposing deep cuts to government departments that deal with the environment, diplomacy, the arts, science and cities. White House budgets are largely political documents that set out presidential priorities, and most of the cuts that Mr. Trump is asking for are unlikely to happen. But some of them could. As Congress weighs Mr. Trump’s requests, industry leaders who are facing a loss of federal funding are starting to sound the alarm about the dire situations they could be facing.
  • Rex Tillerson Allegedly Used An Alias Email To Discuss Climate Change While At Exxon

    The New York Attorney General’s Office is investigating whether ExxonMobil made “significant misrepresentations” about the risks posed by climate change to its shareholders. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson used a second alias email address to discuss climate change while he was chairman and CEO of ExxonMobil, according to a letter filed in court Monday by the New York Attorney General’s Office. New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman alleges that from “at least 2008 to 2015” Tillerson, whose middle name is Wayne, used the “Wayne Tracker” pseudonym email “to send and receive materials regarding important matters, including those concerning to the...

  • Protesters initially block DeVos from entering DC school [Video]

    Protesters initially blocked newly confirmed Education Secretary Betsy DeVos from entering a Washington, D.C., school on Friday – with one “Black Lives Matter” demonstrator even briefly standing in front of her vehicle. DeVos later made it into Jefferson Middle School Academy in Southwest D.C. for her first visit as secretary to a public school. This was only after a teacher/parent “vigil” blocked the road by the front entrance, and a handful of Black Lives Matter protesters caused problems when DeVos tried to enter through the back entrance. Protesters shouted “shame, shame” at the secretary as she was led back into...
