    WASHINGTON, DC — All this week, September 15-19, 211 Young Americans for Liberty campus chapters will rally thousands of students across the country for “Constitution Week” — in celebration of Constitution Day, September 17.YAL chapters will erect large displays in high-traffic areas on campuses and engage students with “Free Speech Walls,” giant Constitutions, and NSA petition drives. They will distribute tens of thousands of pocket Constitutions, personalized flyers, and sign-up sheets to teach more students about our founding principles and bring more students into the liberty movement. A small sampling of these high profile events expected from YAL chapters this...

    Apparently even college campuses aren’t providing green jobs anymore. A survey by the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (Aashe) “showed that creation of new sustainability positions peaked in 2008, then dropped 31 percent in 2009,” Dave Newport reported in The Chronicle of Higher Education on April 6, 2012. Newport directs the Environmental Center at the University of Colorado at Boulder. That actually might be a better record than the Obama Administration has amassed in its much-touted—at least by administration officials—green jobs program. The Department of Labor, Employment and Training Administration (ETA) found that “ETA and grantees...

My speech was video-taped and recorded on audio. Frontpage Magazine posted the video and an edited transcript of the speech. We are now posting an unedited transcript (accessible here) for reasons I will make clear in a moment. On May 24, the Undergraduate Students Association at UCLA, by a 10-0 vote passed a resolution proposed by the Muslim Students Association declaring that “UCLA is...

    A state senator from the Panhandle has introduced a bill that would allow people who have concealed weapons permits to carry their weapons on campus. Florida law currently prohibits guns on campus in most instances. Sen. Greg Evers' proposal also would allow concealed weapons permit-holders to carry their guns out in the open.

    Even as more local schools are reaching state targets on benchmark tests, nearly three-quarters of Los Angeles Unified schools fall among the state's lowest performing campuses, according to data released today by the California Department of Education. Today's release of the state's base Academic Performance Index, or API, ranks schools based on their statewide test scores and how they perform compared to schools with similar demographics. API scores range from 200 to 1,000 points with the target being 800 points. In the last year, 158 Los Angeles Unified schools reached or exceeded the state's target API score of 800, up...

    Anti-Israel agitation has come to light in Canada following an alleged machete attack on pro-Israel students in Ottawa last week. The students, both well-known for their pro-Israel views, were reportedly assaulted after leaving local lounge in the early hours of the morning on April 5. The alleged assaulters included a large group of anti-Israel agitators, one of whom was wielding a machete. One of the alleged victims, who said he and his friend were subject to derogatory and anti-Semitic slurs during the assault, was a local organizer of B'nai Brith's recent Imagine With Us pro-Israel campus initiative - a movement...

    ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH 04/03/2010 It's tempting to think of college campuses as islands of enlightenment, places where students embrace new ideas, people and cultures without the specter of hate hanging overhead. Tempting. But it's not always the case, as demonstrated by events on campuses in Missouri and across the nation in recent months. There were cotton balls scattered outside the black cultural center at the University of Missouri-Columbia. There have been racial slurs and a threat of lynching at St. Louis University. There was a swastika scrawled on a bathroom wall near a Jewish studies center at the University of...

    On the morning following the shootings at Virginia Tech last April, several Korean students missed class here at Arizona State University. We were up together until early morning going over statistical regression, so there had to be another reason that they were missing out on finals review. It turned out that they were afraid to come to class fearing retaliation from students stricken with grief and anger. While we assured our friends there was absolutely nothing to worry about, today – with two university shootings and 12 states considering allowing concealed weapons on school campuses, that may no longer be...

    Former College Student Opts Not To Graduate Because He Cannot Carry His Gun. just three classes short of graduation, is not going back to Front Range Community College because of its campus rules on guns. "I've carried a gun every day for six years. I have a permit. Everything is legal. They still will not allow me to carry on their campus because it violates their student code of conduct," said Aaron Brown, a former student. Brown was suspended for six months after he was found carrying his gun on the college campus. He has no plans to come back...

    LONDON -- U.K. intelligence officials have just provided a chilling assessment of the terrorist threat Britain faces. The country has become "al Qaeda target No. 1," security sources told me, confirming last week's press reports. Intelligence services now judge Britain's "home grown" terrorists to be organized, trained and controlled either directly from Pakistan or via Pakistani networks in Britain. Until now, intelligence services thought British Islamist terrorists had no hard links to al Qaeda despite sharing its ideology. "Clean skins" in the security jargon, they were believed to have acted alone or in self-constructed cells. This theory was the product...

    The West must change its ways because tolerance could be the death of us, writes Janet Albrechtsen ANY mention of state-funded terrorism tends to evoke images of evil Saudis pouring money into madrassas in Indonesia and Pakistan to train terrorists and sending shiploads of pamphlets on do-it-yourself jihad to mosques in the West. Or a few mad mullahs in Iran and Syria arming Hezbollah terrorists with lethal weapons to strike Israelis. It's all so passe. The phrase needs updating after the arrests of 24 terrorist suspects last week in Britain. As it turns out, the West is doing its bit...

    PIERRE, S.D. - South Dakota's public universities should be required to file annual reports to show how they are ensuring academic freedom and promoting differing points of view on their campuses, a state House Committee decided Tuesday. The Education Committee voted 10-5 to approve a measure that requires the six state universities to file reports to the Legislature on what they are doing to ensure intellectual diversity. The measure's main sponsor, Rep. Phyllis Heineman, R-Sioux Falls, said HB1222 is needed to make sure students are exposed to a diverse range of ideas. Members of the Legislature are invigorated by debate,...

    Should law schools be allowed to block military recruiters from campus? That's one of the first questions John Roberts will decide as a Supreme Court justice, should the Senate confirm him. The case, called Rumsfeld v. Forum for Academic Rights, concerns the constitutionality of the Solomon Act, which mandates that law schools will lose their federal funding if they ban military recruiters. In 2003, a coalition of schools sued. Last year, the Third Circuit Court of Appeals ruled in their favor and declared the Solomon Act unconstitutional. The Supreme Court is scheduled to take up the matter in hearings beginning...

    EN ROUTE TO IRAQ -- My bosses at FOX News have sent me on assignment to the "sandbox," as our troops have taken to calling Iraq. There, I will spend time with some of the most impressive young men and women this country has ever produced. These soldiers, sailors, airmen, Marines and Guardsmen never cease to amaze me. Their dedication, enthusiasm and resilience, even in the unforgiving heat and atmosphere of an Iraqi summer, are second to none. On the day before my departure, The Washington Times carried a front-page photo of an unidentified American soldier cradling a young Iraqi...

    Dan Flynn discusses more than a dozen intellectual morons in his book, including Noam Chomsky, Michel Foucault, Margaret Sanger, and Alfred Kinsey. Of all the figures discussed in Intellectual Morons, which one has had the more pernicious impact on our world and why? My college education seems to have included a reading, at one time or another, of a who’s who of Dan Flynn’s intellectual morons. Whether it was the application of Michel Foucault’s sexual theories to Victorian literature, an exploration of Alfred Kinsey’s findings in psychology, or an all-star lineup of thinkers like Sanger, Friedan, or Du Bois in...

    Liberal college students have once again illustrated their never-ending quest for tolerance and their vast ability to think critically about ideas in opposition to their own. Yes, I’m talking about yet another pie-throwing incident involving a conservative speaker on a college campus. The latest chapter in this pathetic story took place at Butler University on Wednesday, April 6. Conservative activist and President of the Center for the Study of Popular Culture David Horowitz was early in his lecture at Butler when he was struck with a pie. “There’s a wave of violence on college campuses, committed by what I’d call...

    In regard to "Court rules colleges may bar recruiters" [News, Nov. 30]: It seems that the military of this nation hasn't the right to recruit or inform on federally funded campuses, per the ruling of the third U.S. Court of Appeals. The court explained that educational institutions have a First Amendment right to keep military recruiters off their campuses to protest the Defense Department policy of excluding gays from military service. This decision relied on a 2000 decision by the U.S. Supreme Court concerning the Boy Scouts not allowing gays as scoutmasters. The last I heard, the Boy Scouts of...

    WE LOVE TO PUT TURKEY INTO OUR MOUTHS each Thanksgiving. But why do we find this odd word “turkey” in our mouths, in our vocabulary? Finding this answer brings us to a smorgasbord of history, politics and culture that gives added savor to most of the foods of this Thursday’s feast. “About 1530, a new dish began to be put on English tables,” writes one cultural historian, “a fowl a little larger than the traditional goose, but with a lot more meat and a refreshingly new taste. “This bird,” the historian continues, “had been brought to England by merchants trading...

    FBI: Hate Crimes Against JewsOutstrip Crimes Against Muslims 9-to-1 By Andrew L. Jaffee, November 15, 2003 Home   Search   Forum   Terms The FBI reported that there were 931 hate crimes committed against Jews in 2002, while 155 were committed against Muslims. Anti-Jewish incidents decreased only slightly from 2001, but anti-Muslim incidents fell sharply from 481. The good news is that the overall count of hate crimes decreased about 25 percent from 2001 to 2002. The bad news is that hate crimes against Jews held almost steady. This is further evidence that anti-Semitism, especially in the context of the Palestinian/Israeli conflict, has become a...

    When Ross Neihaus exited his chemistry class three days after the start of UCLA’s fall quarter, he saw the words "Anti-Zionist and Proud" scrawled in chalk on the wall of an adjacent building. Such a statement coming so early in the quarter was a surprise to the fourth-year biology major, but not a shock. "I expect this to be my toughest year in college," said Neihaus, the president of Bruins for Israel, UCLA’s pro-Israel group. "We are concerned that what will be said this year will be nastier, more radical and essentially more anti-Semitic." Like Neihaus, many pro-Israel students and...

    Islamic Radicals On CampusBy Erick StakelbeckFrontPageMagazine.com | April 23, 2003 The Constitution of the Muslim Student's Association of the U.S. and Canada (MSA) states that the organization’s major purpose is "to serve the best interest of Islam and Muslims in the United States and Canada so as to enable them to practice Islam as a complete way of life." The truth, however, is something far less benign. Although it presents itself as a benevolent, faith-based campus organization, the MSA in reality serves as a North American base for Saudi-funded Islamic extremism. Created in 1963 (the University of Illinois hosted the...

    As a former 'radical,' I see the threat of militant Islam on American campuses http://www.NewsAndOpinion.com | When I was a college radical and anti-war activist forty years ago, I was quite the intellectual and (in my estimation) cautious and sober. Though I became an editor and then co-editor of the leading radical magazine of the Sixties, Ramparts, I never threw a rock during the entire era. I never joined a radical sect and never went to Communist Cuba or North Vietnam, which were then the meccas of the radical faith. Although I was a founder of an organization called the...
