    BERLIN — German Transport Minister Alexander Dobrindt’s political future is tied to the success of imposing a toll on foreign drivers using the country’s autobahns, and despite being slapped down by the European Commission he isn’t giving up on the idea.“The tolls are coming,” Dobrindt told the Bild newspaper on Friday, following news that the EU and Germany are about to settle their dispute over introducing the payments. “I am confident that we will be able to close negotiations with the EU Commission on a positive note in November.”Dobrindt told reporters he expected tolls to come into effect after national...

    German Chancellor Angela Merkel's conservative Christian Democrats fell to third place in a state election on Sunday behind the centre-left Social Democrats (SPD) and anti-immigrant Alternative for Germany (AfD) party, TV exit polls showed. In a stinging defeat for Merkel one year ahead of parliamentary elections, the upstart AfD won 21 percent of the vote in their first election in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern state by campaigning hard against the chancellor's policies on refugees, according to an exit poll by the ARD TV network.

Robert Oscar Lopez, former associate professor of English and classics at California State University at Northridge, recently resigned his position with the academic institution. In an interview with The Christian Post, Lopez explained that the decision to move on came as a result of longstanding mounting pressure from activists on and off campus.

    The CSU aims to ban foreign funding of German mosques to stave off extremism. The proposal has Muslim supporters, but opponents say the regulation violates a key constitutional right. […] “German must become the language of the mosques,” (CSU General Secretary Andreas) Scheuer said in the conversation that covered integration issues, among other topics. […] Scheuer has two main measures in mind for a potential new law. First, mosques, Islamic cultural centers and other Muslim institutions, like kindergartens, should not be allowed to take money from abroad anymore. The CSU hopes that this ban on foreign funding would stop the...

    Germans turned out in force to vote in three state elections on Sunday, with the anti-immigration Alternative for Germany (AfD) party looking to profit from popular angst about Chancellor Angela Merkel's welcome of more than a million migrants. The election is the biggest test year of the German public response to the influx, totaling more than a million last year alone and showing no sign of halting, of refugees and other migrants from the Middle East, Central Asia and Africa. Merkel, who says Germany is a rich enough country to host desperate people and has a moral obligation to shelter...

    Berlin (AFP) - Nearly 40 percent of German voters think Chancellor Angela Merkel should quit over her liberal asylum policy after almost 1.1 million newcomers arrived last year, a poll showed Friday. As the mood in Germany has shifted from a euphoric welcome for people fleeing war and persecution last September to growing doubts about the country's ability to accommodate and integrate the record influx, the popular Merkel has come under increasing pressure. However, the poll for Focus news magazine conducted by the independent opinion research institute Insa among 2,047 German citizens showed that a larger share -- nearly 45...

In a report commissioned by Mrs Merkel's partners, the Christian Social Union (CSU), Udo di Fabio says the federal government is constitutionally obliged to take control of border security when European institutions are impaired.Mr. di Fabio, himself from an immigrant family, adds that the overwhelming migrant influx, and the subsequent suspension of the Dublin Convention, means that the German government is therefore obliged to step in, but has so far failed to do so adequately.

    Republican Rep. Doug Lamborn called Friday for Colorado State University to stop using fetal tissue from abortions in its research while CSU defended its work as above reproach both legally and ethically. In a letter to CSU President Tony Frank, Lamborn cited documents released last week by the Center for Medical Progress showing that the university bought what he described as “aborted babies’ parts” on Jan. 10, 2013, from a Planned Parenthood affiliate in California. Federal and state law bans the acquisition, receipt or transfer of "human fetal tissue for valuable consideration" obtained from an abortion, although such purchases are...

    Yesterday a shocking video released by the Center for Medical Progress showed Planned Parenthood’s Medical Director, Dr. Deborah Nucatola, discussing their negotiations with a business called Stem Express that purchases aborted babies’ body parts for experimentation. Dr. Nucatola tells investigators posing as buyers from a human biologics company that Planned Parenthood charges per-specimen for baby body parts and is aware of their own liability for doing so. Unbelievably, she also explains that some body parts, such as livers and heads, are much more popular and go for a higher price than other specimen. Now this scandal has come to Colorado....

In her piece, “Privilege at The Beach,”—referencing the Long Beach area where the school resides—Jane Close Conoley, a white woman herself, asserts that “light skin color and high income levels may attract significant unearned privilege.” Those who qualify for such privilege, often unknowingly exert distrust and “lower expectations of behavior” on those of another skin color. “Those who are less affluent with darker skin or from...

Horst Seehofer, head of the Christian-Social Union (CSU) which is the Bavarian sister party of (Angela) Merkel’s CDU, has been requesting for many years that road tolls be introduced for foreign car drivers, using German, or at least Bavarian roads.

CSU denies official recognition and funding to student organizations that discriminate on the basis of race, religion, gender, national origin and sexual orientation. The Christian groups at San Diego State argued that the policy itself was discriminatory for two reasons: The ban on gender-based admissions doesn't apply to sororities and fraternities, and secular organizations are allowed to make viewpoint-based distinctions - an immigrants'-rights...

    California State University trustees are proposing a 9 percent hike in undergraduate tuition beginning with the fall 2012 semester, unless the state gives the system more money. It would be the ninth basic fee increase in nine years for the nation's largest university system, which says higher tuition is the only way to keep up with rising enrollment and declining state support. "Our options are severely limited," CSU Chancellor Charles B. Reed said in a Monday morning news conference. "The state needs to step up and assume its historic role as the primary funder of the university." The $498 increase...

    (Reuters) - Chancellor Angela Merkel urged Germans debating Muslim integration to stand up more for Christian values, saying Monday the country suffered not from "too much Islam" but "too little Christianity." Addressing her Christian Democratic Union (CDU) party, she said she took the current public debate in Germany on Islam and immigration very seriously. As part of this debate, she said last month that multiculturalism there had utterly failed. Some of her conservative allies have gone further, calling for an end to immigration from "foreign cultures" -- a reference to Muslim countries like Turkey -- and more pressure on immigrants...

This movement includes not only a sizeable chunk of the student body, but also heavily ideological and biased professors, one of whom has actually started a Facebook page to consolidate opposition to Palin's June 25th event! What makes their opposition so objectionable is it flies in the face of everything a university's supposed to stand for—like challenging students to hear speakers who hold opposing viewpoints.

In the letter, which has bipartisan support, Brophy points out that “no carry - criminal safe zones” actually embolden criminals. States that allow citizens to carry concealed weapons see a reduction in crime rates. “Depriving honest gun owners of their right to conceal and carry is both unconstitutional and unsafe,” Brophy said. “Statistics show areas that allow conceal carry are actually safer than areas that do not.” According to statistics from the FBI Crime...

Anyone with a concealed weapons permit could legally carry on campus. Students, however, were alarmed when the faculty moved to change that. Among other arguments, students contended that permitting people to carry concealed weapons was the campus' best defense against another tragedy. "Let's say you have another Columbine or Virginia Tech," said Dan Gearhart, the student government president....

    With tens of thousands being turned away from state universities, California lawmakers likely will consider granting community colleges the right to offer a limited number of bachelor's degrees. The shift, which has occurred in 17 other states in the past decade or so, would represent a major philosophical change in California, where the three state higher-education systems have clearly defined roles. Bachelor's and higher degrees are offered by University of California and California State University campuses, while community colleges offer two-year associate degrees and certificates for a variety of professions. However, major reforms must be considered in the age of...

However, Sufaat, high on the FBI list of suspects from South East Asia, who might be members or operatives of the Al-Qaeda, stressed the duo could not be involved in the Sept 11 attacks as they were amputees shopping for prosthetic legs in Malaysia. The 37-year-old pathologist and former army captain, who is also a businessmen in Malaysia, told this to...

    A pioneering expert on hurricane forecasting says he may soon lose funding due to his skepticism about man-made global warming, according to a report in the Houston Chronicle. Dr. William Gray, who once said that pro-global warming scientists are "brainwashing our children," claims that Colorado State University will no longer promote his yearly North Atlantic hurricane forecasts due to his controversial views. Gray complained in a memo to the head of Colorado State’s Department of Atmospheric Sciences that "this is obviously a flimsy excuse and seems to me to be a cover for the Department's capitulation to the desires of...

    Court challenge prompts CSU to drop civility code for students To the relief of a campus Republican group, the 417,000 students at California State University's 23 institutions no longer face the possibility of discipline for failing to be civil to one another. The change was part of a settlement approved by a federal magistrate in Oakland this week in a lawsuit by the San Francisco State College Republicans, whose members were subjected to a disciplinary hearing after some of them stomped on two flags bearing the name of Allah during an anti-terrorism rally in October 2006. The flags represented the...

    OAKLAND - The 417,000 students at California State University's 28 campuses are expected to be civil to one another, the university says in its policy manual. It sounds innocuous - but a federal magistrate says it's an unconstitutional restriction on speech when the policy is used to investigate or discipline students, such as the College Republicans whose members stomped on two flags bearing the name of Allah during an anti-terrorism rally at San Francisco State last year. "It might be fine for the university to say, 'Hey, we hope you folks are civil to one another,' " U.S. Magistrate Wayne...

    On Sept. 21, 2007, the editorial board of the Colorado State University student newspaper decided to publish a four-word editorial. Apparently finding the traditional mode of expressing ideas -- arguing a case in a few hundred words -- too demanding, they instead wrote four words: "Taser this … F--- Bush." Needless to say, they spelled out the F word. The "Taser" referred to the police using a stun gun on a student at the University of Florida who refused to relinquish the microphone to other students at a speech at the university given by Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass. (How George...

    Upset over a college newspaper editorial about President Bush that used an obscenity, conservative students at Colorado State University have started printing their own newspaper. A group calling itself the CSU College Republicans on Monday distributed the Ram Republic, which they are calling the “Conservative Voice of Colorado State University.” Editor Bobby Carson said the group had already been thinking about starting a journal when the campus’s main publication, The Rocky Mountain Collegian, published a four-word editorial that directed a four-letter word at Bush

    Colorado State University is still experiencing the fallout from a profane editorial that ran in the college's student newspaper two weeks ago. CSU police investigated a threat that was called into The Rocky Mountain Collegian last week. Advertising in the newspaper and other student- run media organizations remains down. And at least one parent of a CSU student might withdraw her daughter from the school. "It's true. We are reconsidering schools," said Casper resident Cathy Ide, whose daughter, Holly Loucks, is a sophomore construction management major. The school's alumni relations and admissions offices have also received calls and e-mails concerning...

    For some, it was a matter of protecting free speech. For others, it was about punishing the editor of a campus newspaper, who they believed damaged the credibility of Colorado State University nationally when he decided to publish the F-word in the school newspaper. "Our university will take a hit for the poor choices of one student," said Chelsea Penoyer, chairwoman of the College Republicans at CSU. Penoyer was one of more than 300 students and members of the staff and community who attended a hearing Wednesday night of CSU's Board of Student Communications, the governing body that will decide...

    FORT COLLINS — The student newspaper that stirred up a hornet's nest when it dropped the F-bomb last week drew more fire Monday. (snip) College Republicans at Colorado State University collected more than 300 signatures calling on CSU's Board of Student Communications to fire Editor in Chief David McSwane. (snip) Asked by CNN if the editorial could be characterized as vulgar or sophomoric, McSwane said he "wouldn't entirely disagree." "We wanted people to understand that free speech is something we should talk about," he told CNN. "We felt that this campus, for one reason or another, has been really apathetic....
