    Emma Sulkowicz is turning her assault into art -- and a protest against Columbia University's sexual assault policy On the first day of her sophomore year of college, Emma Sulkowicz was raped in her dorm room bed. The Columbia University senior says the perpetrator was a fellow student. He still is — and has been since he allegedly assaulted Sulkowicz and two other female students. As Sulkowicz reported in Time earlier this year, all three cases against her offender were dismissed. So, she’s not taking it anymore. After joining a federal complaint in April over Columbia’s mishandling of rape cases...

    The New York Times ^ | August 6, 2014 | Professor Rashid Khalidi, Columbia University
    The blatant partiality of the United States in favor of Israel has already turned the words “peace process” into a bitter joke. Over many decades, American indulgence of Israel has blighted prospects of any resolution of the conflict with the Palestinians. Consequently, occupation has been entrenched and Israeli colonization of the West Bank and East Jerusalem has metastasized, going from under 200,000 illegal settlers in 1991 to over 600,000 today. This partiality only increases when Israel goes to war. By guaranteeing Israel impunity in its military actions, the United States has contributed massively to the bloodshed in Gaza in recent...

    ‘Two, four, six, eight. Stop the violence. Stop the rape.” So chanted a group of Ohio University students calling themselves “f***rapeculture” at a protest a couple of years ago. Rape-culture activists have become a fixture on campuses throughout the country, and now, 55 colleges — including Harvard, Princeton, and Berkeley — are under federal investigation for mishandling sexual-assault complaints. Some of my conservative/libertarian sisters have pointed out that the statistics on sexual assault are wildly inflated. Christina Hoff Sommers notes that the “one in five women are victims of rape” statistic that the Centers for Disease Control popularized (and that...

    Pajamas Media ^ | 04/17/2014 | Roger L. Simon
    [1]Back in 1962, Robert Gover published a novel called the One Hundred Dollar Misunderstanding [2] whose premise Amazon describes this way: “A college sophomore spends a weekend with a pretty 14-year-old black prostitute under the manly misapprehension that she has invited him because she finds him irresistible.”I remember reading it as an undergraduate and finding it mildly amusing. Of course, inflation being what it is, it’s hard to write a book about a piddling hundred dollar misunderstanding anymore. But somehow the novel came to mind today when reading one of my favorite websites — The College Fix [3]. The...

    The Mongol warlord built the world's largest land-based empire. But he couldn't have done it without a change in climate. The difference was Genghis Khan, the warlord who united the tribes and launched them on their wave of unstoppable conquest. But the Mongol Empire wasn’t solely the product of Genghis’s will. As a fascinating new study in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Science (PNAS) demonstrates, the rise of the Mongols may have owed just as much to beneficial changes in the climate that made the grasslands of the Mongol steppes green and verdant, fueling the horses that were...

Then she’d shake her head, say that had been a long time ago, and ask if we wanted another bowl of Raisin Bran.

    Whittaker Chambers and Totalitarian Islam Playwright David Mamet recently acknowledged that he had been profoundly influenced by Communist apostate Whittaker Chambers’s 1952 anti-Communist memoir, Witness. Mamet described how reading Chambers’s opus inspired “the wrenching experience” of forcibly reevaluating the way he thought, particularly his confessed leftist-herd co-dependence. Also, echoing the delusive herd mentality of the Left’s ad hominem attacks in the 1950s on Chambers — whose allegations of Communist conspiracies have been entirely vindicated with irrefragable documentation from the captured Soviet Venona cables — Congressman Peter King’s staid initial hearings of March 10, 2011, on American Muslim radicalization engendered similarly...

    The Rules of War Can't Protect Al Qaeda By RUTH WEDGWOOD NEW HAVEN — It makes no sense to win a trial but lose the war. With this in mind, a majority of the American public favors giving President Bush the option to use military tribunals against the Qaeda terror network. The tribunals are designed to permit a "full and fair trial" of war crimes without compromising our ability to track the network's future plans. Al Qaeda's skill at countersurveillance has made plain the need to protect sensitive intelligence sources at trial. But some international-law scholars suggest that President Bush's ...

Or so the founders of this “social welfare advocacy organization” would have us think. One thousand people crammed into the Alfred Lerner Hall at Columbia University to take part in the founding festivities: the speeches, the panels, the testimonials. They were “Democrats, Republicans and Independents” — their declaration read — who believed that “hyper-partisanship is destroying our politics” and that we must “put the issues and what’s...

But they also questioned how helpful the couple could have been to the Russian government if they were indeed spies.

But neighbors said the husband seemed to rarely leave the home — outside of walking the girls to...

    In what many are calling a 'mock trial,' a black Pastor in Harlem, New York is placing Barack Obama and Columbia University on trial for what he terms 'treason and sedition.' The trial begins on May 14 and continuing until May 19, if needed, at the Atlah World Missionary Church in Harlem, New York. Dr. James Manning, the Pastor of the church, insists that this is no joke nor a 'mock trial.' According to the legal experts who are backing the trial, the proceeding is legal and will carry the full weight of the law according to the U.S. Constitution....

    Columbia College Today - Alumni Corner ^ | Jan/Feb. 2009 | By Phil Boerner ’84
    I was Barack Obama ’83’s roommate at Columbia College in fall 1981. I met him in 1979, when we were freshmen at Occidental College (Oxy) in Los Angeles and our dorm rooms were directly opposite each other. I came to college as a middle-class guy from Bethesda, Md., where I’d lived from fifth grade through high school. At Oxy, we attended some of the same social events and had late-night philosophical discussions related to our college reading or to current affairs. We attended rallies on campus where we were urged to “draft beer, not people,” and discussed the Soviet invasion...

    The year of our Lord, 2009, was the year the thugs from Chicago descended upon the White House.The net result for Obama’s symbol of “hope and change” is now “con artist.” Obama is slick, cool and collected when working the teleprompter. When the lights fade, the man is an empty suit. For those of us that have critically studied Barack Obama before and after the election, we are shocked and furious that such a corrupt man was able to ascend to the Presidency. The fraud and treason perpetuated by Obama on our people is beyond forgiveness. Those of us that...

    The Obama File ^ | Feb 1, 2010 | The Obama File
    Private investigator Neil Sankey, using Intelius, Lexis Nexis, Choice Point and other public records, found around 25 Social Security numbers connected with Barack Obama’s name. However, it may not be as many as 25, since Sankey also searched using closely related names such as: "Barak Obama," "Batock Obama," "Barok Obama," and "Barrack Obama." There may very well be some Kenyans living in America with the same last name and a similar first name. In any case, I will exclude these records for the purpose of this research and focus only on names spelled exactly like his name. Moreover, we can...

    Pastor James David Manning, one of President Obama’s most vocal and outspoken critics, has just released a video yesterday in which he is charging Columbia University with treason and is taking them to court. Pastor Manning alleges that Obama never went to the school and that he actually bought the degree. Pastor Manning states that Obama was instead in Afghanistan during the period of time from 1981 to 1983, working for Al Qaeda, when Obama was supposedly attending Columbia. Most of what we know about Barack Obama comes from Chicago corruption trial transcripts, Illinois records such as the IL bar,...

Khalidi was a close friend and associate of Obama. Judi McLeod of the Canada Free Press has a Google cache identifying Tareq Salahi as a member of the ATFP.
