    And he has a plan to make it happen, says former CAIR intern. Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN), the new deputy chairman of the Democratic National Committee, and the first Muslim elected to Congress, has a plan to recruit additional Muslim lawmakers like him -- including possible candidates sponsored by a terror-tied Islamist group for which he helped raise millions of dollars, according to a source who once prayed alongside him in the basement of the Capitol. Ellison has held Friday, or jummah, prayers with other Muslims, including staffers from the Congressional Muslim Staff Association and officials from the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR),...

  • Top military officer (CJCS Dunford) contradicts Obama, says ISIS not 'contained'

    America's top-ranking military officer found himself at odds Tuesday with the nation’s commander-in-chief over his claim that the Islamic State was "contained" - an assertion President Obama had made before the Paris terror attacks. Gen. Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, gave a dim assessment when asked during a House Armed Services Committee hearing whether that's the case. "We have not contained ISIL currently," Dunford told Rep. Randy Forbes, R-Va. The answer runs counter to the claim made by Obama last month in an ABC News interview when asked about the status of the anti-ISIS campaign.

    City Journal ^ | 24 May 2012 | Charles C. Johnson
    Claremont McKenna College, a private liberal arts college 60 miles east of Los Angeles, drew national attention earlier this year when its dean of admissions, Richard Vos, was caught deliberately misreporting the SAT scores that students had achieved before attending CMC. VosÂ’s goal was to reach the coveted 1400 SAT average for highly selective liberal arts colleges. He resigned soon after the scandal emerged in January, but not before touching off a debate about the lengths to which colleges will go to boost their rankings. Journalists and education-policy experts lectured about the corrupting effect of U.S. News and World ReportÂ’s...

    The $100 million was too good to be true. On Sunday, The New York Times reported Scranton's Commonwealth Medical College would likely be the recipient of a $100 million earmark in the Senate health care bill. When contacted by a New York Times reporter, Robert D'Alessandri, M.D., the school's dean and president, said such a windfall was news to him. Dr. D'Alessandri told the reporter he doubted the money was for the state's newest medical school - but anything was possible. On Monday, The Associated Press ended the speculation, reporting that the money had been put in the bill at...

    Dunn jailed for psych review By ROD LEVEQUE, STAFF WRITER POMONA - A judge sent a former Claremont McKenna professor to state prison on Friday for 90 days psychological testing after the judge called her a "bald-faced liar" for continuing to deny she vandalized her own car and reported it as a hate crime. Kerri Francis Dunn was not sentenced as scheduled in Pomona Superior Court. Rather, Judge Charles Horan temporarily remanded her into custody and said he would use reports from prison examiners to help him decide whether to sentence the Redlands woman to probation or additional time behind...

    What Did Hate-Crime Hoaxer Dunn Cost the Colleges?  That's the big question the judge asked at her sentencing, which was postponed to December 15, following a psychiatric evaluation of the hate-crimes hoaxer. Calling Claremont McKenna College professor Dunn a "bald-faced liar," Judge Horan stated: '"Ms. Dunn doesn't have to stand up and say she did it," Judge Charles Horan said during Friday's hearing. "But it sure would help the court in deciding whether prison time is appropriate."' According to a reliable source, an alumnus of the Colleges who attended the hearing: 'The judge was disappointed--his word--that there was no one...

    Note: this column contain language that may be offensive to some readers. Ever since self-defacing teenager Tawana Brawley smeared feces all over herself, scrawled "KKK" and "nigger" on her skin, climbed into a trash bag, and blamed it on racist cops in New York, America has been victimized by wannabe victims -- warped publicity-seekers so desperate for attention that they'll fake the hate by any means necessary. Brawley (who now calls herself Maryam Muhammad) is all grown up. But her psychologically stunted heirs continue to soak up public sympathy and squander police resources. Recent media attention has focused on...
