    Fascist protesters from groups Black Lives Matter, Antifa, Southern Poverty Law Center of Columbia University and others shut down Tommy Robinson’s speech Tuesday night at Columbia University. Robinson’s speech on immigration, “The Fall of Europe – Mass Immigration” was slated for 8 p.m. It opened to a Q & A in an effort to quell the crowd of ticket-holding protesters and allow their arguments to be heard, but quickly folded as they began chanting, “Let them in! Let them in! Let them in!” in reference to the crowd of protesters without tickets beating on the doors to gain entrance. The...

    Whenever a journalism school claims it has found a new and improved way to train reports, it seems, the result is an even more partisan and ideological training camp than what is already in place. Columbia University leads the way in this sort of pedagogy. “Independent journalism requires skepticism as a mandatory practice,” Giannina Segnini writes in the Columbia Journalism Review. “No matter how truthfully a presidential administration conducts itself, reporters should always question, contrast, and complement official information to find the closest version to the truth.” So far so good, but where has she been for the past eight...

    Columbia University’s “Knight Institute” is suing the Trump administration on behalf of seven individuals alleging the president “blocked” them from reading his Twitter feed. The lawsuit, filed with the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, alleges that due to Mr. Trump’s usage of his personal Twitter account to engage with the public, his @realdonaldtrump Twitter account is a “public forum,” blocking citizens of access is “unconstitutional,” and his personal Twitter account should be treated as a public forum under federal law.

    Members of Columbia University College Republicans walked out of class Monday afternoon to find a man removing the flags from their 9/11 memorial. The unidentified man removed a row of at least 50 flags, threw them in the trash, and went back for more. An angered Columbia University ROTC student recorded the event. “I ran over and asked him what he was doing, and was laughed at with no proper response,” the student recounted. “I asked a nearby Public Safety officer what could be done; but he was well within his rights to protest, so I recorded the video.”

    On September 1, only days before Pope Francis' current visit to Colombia, the Marxist-Leninist terror organization FARC organised a concert in Bolívar, the main square of the Colombian capital Bogotá. During the concert FARC projected its new logo on the facade of the Cathedral without approval. Father Pedro Mercado, a parish-priest and president of the ecclesiastical tribunal of Bogotá expressed on Twitter his “total repudiation”. The logo consists of the Communist five-pointed star and the Socialist red rose. FARC has been responsible for over 200'000 casualties.

    Bogota (AFP) - Colombia's President Juan Manuel Santos declared the country's 50-year conflict with FARC guerrillas "truly over" Tuesday, as the last truckloads of decommissioned weapons rolled away to be melted down. Santos himself shut a padlock on the last lot of decommissioned rifles before it was taken out of a remote demobilization camp to formally seal the UN-supervised disarmament by the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC). "With the laying down of arms ... the conflict is truly over and a new phase begins in the life of our nation," Santos said at a ceremony in Pondores, a remote...

    WASHINGTON — The administration of President George W. Bush wants to expand the scope of U.S. military aid to Colombia in 2003 beyond counterdrug assistance to help the Colombian military safeguard the nation's infrastructure and stabilize its struggling democratic government, Army Maj. Gen. Gary Speer, acting commander of the U.S. Southern Command (SOUTHCOM), told lawmakers March 5. Of the $373 million in military aid for Colombia contained in Bush's $26 billion State Department budget request for 2003, $98 million would go to train and equip indigenous military units to protect the nation's Cano Limon-Covenas oil pipeline, "one of the most ...

    'El Chapo' and El Banco: What You Haven’t Been Told CRIME POLITICS-US media are celebrating the arrest of alleged Mexican drug kingpin Joaquín "El Chapo" Guzmán Loera, whose Sinaloa Cartel is thought to be the most powerful trafficker in the world and "a main combatant in a spasm of violence that has left tens of thousands dead in Mexico" (New York Times, 2/22/14). US Attorney General Eric Holder called the arrest a "landmark achievement": "The criminal activity Guzman allegedly directed contributed to the death and destruction of millions of lives across the globe through drug addiction, violence and corruption."

    Black students at Columbia University protested a campus statue of Thomas Jefferson last week by covering the statue, which stands in front of the journalism building, with a Ku Klux Klan hood and posing with signs disparaging Columbia University for celebrating the legacy of a man they regard as a white supremacist, hypocrite, rapist and a “symbol of violence against Black and brown bodies and their consciousness.” The group protesting, Mobilized African Diaspora (MAD), compiled a statement of complaints on its web site condemning the 103-year-old statue of a Founding Father and principal author of the Declaraton of Independence, Thomas...

    Chiquita Bananas had a jingle I memorized from television commercials as a child.  Now, a lawsuit is exposing former Chiquita Banana Company executives for funding terror death squads in Columbia. The lawsuit was filed on March 11 in the US District Court for the Southern District of Florida against former CEO of Chiquita Cyrus Freidheim and manager Charles Keiser. The plaintiffs are identified only as John, Jane and Minor Does and are represented by Leslie Kroeger of Cohen Milstein Sellers & Toll. "This case arises as a result of the actions of Chiquita Brands International, Inc., and its subsidiaries and...

    Families and rescuers searched desperately on Sunday through mud-plastered rubble for victims of flooding and landslides in Colombia that have killed at least 210 people, injured hundreds and devastated entire neighborhoods. Several rivers burst their banks near the southwestern city of Mocoa in the early hours of Saturday, sending water, mud and debris crashing down streets and into houses as people slept. Officials in the nearby town of Villagarzon said they had no storage for recovered bodies and asked for government help.

    NEW YORK, January 3: The human rights advocacy group the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI) today unveiled an alarming new video, filmed at Columbia University, showing that at Columbia University, an Ivy League school and one of the nation’s foremost centers of higher learning, most students are willing to condone female genital mutilation. AFDI President Pamela Geller noted: “Students were asked if Planned Parenthood should fund and support female genital mutilation (FGM). FGM involves partial or total removal of the clitoris causing injury to the female genital organs for non-medical reasons. It has no health benefits for girls and women,...

    Back from vacation for the holidays and New Years, I've been watching some videos by Pastor Mark Dice from California, he has been doing fake petitions in universities and in Oceanside Beach which is located north of San Diego. These petitions include banning guns and having registered gun owners put in prisons or concentration camps. Also there are petitions making post birth abortions legal, making incest legal, making Karl Marx a candidate for the Democratic party or mandatory euthanasia for the elderly. The majority of of the signers are young naive liberals and marxists of course and your typical California...

    At both Harvard and Columbia this fall we’ve seen how students who dare to privately act out against PC standards are inspiring crazed nuclear strikes from campus administrators. This disproportionate punishment is, in turn, bound to create both more rebels flouting norms and more wusses and tattletales passive-aggressively seizing power by parading their phony wounds.

    Colombian voters rejected a peace deal with FARC rebels Sunday, in a surprise outcome that risks prolonging a 52-year-old armed conflict and plunges the country’s future into uncertainty. By a razor-thin margin of 50.25 to 49.75 percent, Colombians voted against the peace accord, in a Brexit-style backlash that defied pollsters’ predictions and left supporters of the deal in tears. After nearly six years of negotiations, many handshakes and ceremonial signatures, a ­half-century war that has killed 220,000 and displaced 7 million Colombians from their homes is not over.

    Secretary of State John Kerry got upset that Obama was stealing the treason spotlight from him on the Cuban getaway. So he decided to pull a Sean Penn and meet with a Marxist terror group that is on his own State Department's list of Terror organizations. Here's the terror group's Twitter account promoting the meeting. FARC is a Marxist terror group that has kidnapped and murdered Americans.

    Conservative activist James O’Keefe visited Columbia University’s campus in late August and brought a student to tears by showing his support for Donald Trump in chalk and cardboard bricks. “I’m scared that you guys even think this,” a female Columbia student told O’Keefe in a video first obtained by The Daily Caller. O’Keefe replied, “What do you mean?” The student got distraught and said, “I don’t want my future to be this!” She later said, “You don’t have to make a wall. You don’t need a man like this!”

    In light of the Rolling Stone-University of Virginia libel lawsuit and other rape hoaxes across the U.S., The Women Against VAWA [Violence Against Women Act] Excess (known as WAVE) issued a brief directed towards Democratic Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) and her rhetoric on sexual assaults. In their brief, WAVE noted, "Gillibrand has no regard for the presumption of innocence and has repeatedly misrepresented the facts surround the issue." Additionally, Wave pointed out how the criminal justice system's purpose is to "reach a reliable determination of innocence and guilt," while the Left's rhetoric is to mostly ignore the due process rights...
