    Shame on Georgia's Medical Swamp Contact: Genevieve Wilson, Georgia Right to Life, 770-339-6880 NORCROSS, Ga., Aug. 31, 2018 /Christian Newswire/ -- Georgia Right to Life (GRTL) today slammed the Georgia Composite Medical Board for its outrageous and immoral decision to reinstate the medical license for disgraced late-term abortionist Tyrone C. Malloy. "This is a flagrant example of the medical community circling the wagons to protect their own despite patients' safety," said GRTL President Ricardo Davis. "If they're going to put cronyism above ethics they don't deserve to hold this critical position." Davis called on Governor Deal to immediately demand all...

    A young Barack Obama questioned his place in the world and his racial identity, agonized over whether he’d make enough money as a community organizer, and lamented his incompatibility with his ex-girlfriend in 30 pages of letters he wrote to her that are now being archived by Emory University in Atlanta. The nine full letters, sent by Obama to his college girlfriend, Alexandra McNear, are being made public to researchers through Emory University’s Stuart A. Rose Manuscript, Archives and Rare Book Library. The university has had the letters since 2014 but could only make them public now, officials said. Written...

    Emory University student Abinta Kabir was killed yesterday during the ISIS restaurant siege in Dhaka. The terrorists stormed the restaurant screaming “Allahu Akbar.” ** Hostages who could cite the Koran were spared. ** ISIS barbarians posted photos of the victims online during the siege. Twenty hostages were killed during the attack. Yahoo reported: Emory University says in an email to employees that one of the Dhaka restaurant attack victims was Abinta Kabir, a student at the school’s campus in Oxford, Georgia. She was visiting family and friends in Bangladesh when she was taken hostage and killed. University president James Wagner...

    The Leftists going nuts over #TheChalkening really need to chillax and remember the benefits of free speech. #TheChalkening is a bunch of college students putting up pro-Donald Trump messages on college campuses because they know it makes the skin crawl of those who don’t support him. It all started after Emory University students started flipping out over the Trump 2016 messages being scrawled on multiple sidewalks and walls on campus. Via The Emory Wheel (emphasis mine): “I’m supposed to feel comfortable and safe [here],” one student said. “But this man is being supported by students on our campus and our...

    Emory University President James W. Wagner chalked his own free speech message onto a campus sidewalk after students protested over pro-Donald Trump messages that they said threatened their safety. Students had petitioned the administration to denounce the pro-Trump chalkings that began appearing throughout the Atlanta campus last week, saying the possibility that fellow students could support Mr. Trump made them feel unsafe at school. Roughly 40 students carrying signs such as “Stop Trump” and “Stop Hate” protested outside of the Administrative Building last week, chanting “You are not listening! Come speak with us, we are in pain!” Some students went...

    I see the Saudi government is planning to amp up the penalty for homosexual behavior after it observed an increase in “perverts” displaying “sins and obscenities” on social media in the otherwise Sunni Kingdom. In a land where “acting gay” is already illegal, the current punishments for first-time offenders - fines, prison terms and whippings - have proved to be inadequate deterrents.  From now on they will be executed. UK Express — Saudi law makers could impose the death penalty on gay people who show their sexuality in public and on social media, according to reports. And don’t even think...

    Last week, a group of about 50 students at Emory University claimed that at an outbreak of pro-Donald Trump sidewalk chalk around campus was “triggering,” racist and damaging to their psychological well-being. Emory president James Wagner then legitimized the complaints, describing words such as “Vote Trump” and “Build the wall” — chalked on cement — as “perceived intimidation.” Over the weekend, students involved in Emory’s Young Americans for Liberty chapter responded to the wailing and gnashing of teeth by the $59,444-per-year private school’s social justice warriors with a new, bigger, better political message in support of Trump, reports Inside Higher...

    Hey, I am a student at Emory and yesterday, March 21st, someone had written Trump in chalk hundreds of times on campus. Some people apparently were OFFENDED that someone wrote Trump 2016 in CHALK so these 50 people were protesting in the DUC…absolutely ridiculous. Today the president sent this email. Really hoped shit like this wouldn’t happen here but this is why nobody respects college students I guess. *snip* Dear Emory Community,Yesterday I received a visit from 40 to 50 student protesters upset by the unexpected chalkings on campus sidewalks and some buildings yesterday morning, in this case referencing Donald...

    A college professor has taken to the New York Times to implore "white America" to go to "war" with itself over its alleged racism. Professor George Yancy of Emory University published "Dear White America" as a "gift" for white people. His challenge: "White America, are you prepared to be at war with yourself, your white identity, your white power, your white privilege?" Yancy, a black professor, told Times readers Dec. 24 that, just as he considers himself sexist, all white people should admit to possessing latent racism. "I can see your anger. I can see that this letter is being...

    Swastikas were found painted on the exterior of a historically Jewish fraternity house at Emory University in metro Atlanta over the weekend, according to police and university reports, and officials said the vandalism would not be tolerated as they stepped up patrols at the private school. The Alpha Epsilon Pi house was targeted early Sunday morning, shortly after the end of the observance of the Jewish holiday Yom Kippur, Emory officials said. …

    An American doctor stricken by Ebola in West Africa arrived home for treatment in Atlanta on Saturday, and U.S. government officials are urging the public to remain confident in the health-care system’s ability to keep the deadly disease isolated. A charity organization, Samaritan’s Purse, said two Americans in serious condition with the disease were being evacuated: Kent Brantly, a Fort Worth doctor who had been treating Ebola victims in Liberia, and Nancy Writebol, a missionary from Charlotte. Brantly and Writebol have been hospitalized in serious condition in Monrovia, the Liberian capital. Brantly was brought back to the United States first,...
  • What Do We Do Now? (Leftist College Student's To-Do List)

    It seems as if the Democrats are about to reclaim their title as “the party of no.” That might come as a shock to many Democratic apologists, but as the center-left loses control of the national debate, it is finding itself reacting to an agenda not set by its majorities in government but by the vocal right-leaning opposition. Not that there’s anything inherently wrong with saying “no.” It’s a good thing that liberals have consistently opposed anti-Muslim attempts to move the proposed Muslim community center in Lower Manhattan, decried the unnecessarily blunt — and unconstitutional — tool of the Arizona...

    The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has suspended a $9 million grant for a depression study led by a psychiatrist at Emory University in Atlanta. The punishment, imposed in August but only made public today, is apparently the most severe reaction by NIH so far to a Senate investigation of NIH-funded researchers who may have failed to report all of their income from drug companies. Since last spring, Senator Charles Grassley (R-IA) has accused at least nine academic psychiatrists of failing to follow federal rules that require NIH grantees to report industry consulting income to their institutions. One investigator at...

    Leftist Brown Shirts Shut Down Horowitz Speech at Emory   By Ruth Malhotra and Orit SklarFrontPageMagazine.com | Friday, October 26, 2007 On Wednesday evening, the Emory University Chapter of the College Republicans hosted acclaimed author and activist David Horowitz for a lecture on radical Islam as part of Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week. From the beginning of Horowitz’s speech, rowdy protesters continually interrupted him and less than half an hour into the event, the crowd became so disruptive that police were called in and Horowitz had to be escorted off stage.  The event was part of the Terrorism Awareness Project, a...

    As One Who Stood Against Horowitz As a current Emory student who stood with my back turned during Horowitz's speech, I would like to respond to those who have called my actions 'disgraceful.' I made the choice to stand silently while he spoke; however, I do not condemn those who yelled out. While Horowitz claims he is willing to engage in free and open debate with those who disagree with his views, we arrived to the event Wednesday night to a few stacks of index cards with instructions to write our questions down. I believe that it was this...

    Conservative commentator David Horowitz was forced to cut short his speech on “Islamo-Fascism” in the face of repeated interruptions, heckling and catcalls from some audience members in a packed lecture room in White Hall on Wednesday. The event played out like a tug-of-war between two groups: protestors who shouted questions or anti-conservative taglines after every few sentences Horowitz spoke and another faction in the audience who became increasingly vocal about their desire to hear him speak uninterrupted. When the disruptions peaked about 20 minutes into Horowitz’s speech, Senior Vice Provost for Community and Diversity Ozzie Harris stood up at the...

    Wednesday, Feb 14, 2007 (CBC) - Award-winning author and essayist Salman Rushdie got back into the classroom on Tuesday, teaching his first world literature class at Atlanta's Emory University. In addition to counting Rushdie as its writer-in-residence for the next five years, Emory is now also the holder of his literary archive, which includes journals, letters, e-mails, photos, unpublished works and manuscripts - including more than 1,000 typewritten pages from his 1988 novel The Satanic Verses. Asked why he chose to donate his archive to Emory, a school which he had only visited once before for during a 2004 lecture...

    Some male prairie voles are devoted fathers and faithful partners, while others are less satisfactory on both counts. The spectrum of behavior is shaped by a genetic mechanism that allows for quick evolutionary changes, two researchers from Emory University report in today's issue of Science. The mechanism depends on a highly variable section of DNA involved in controlling a gene. The Emory researchers who found it, Elizabeth A. D. Hammock and Larry J. Young, say they have detected the same mechanism embedded in the sequence of human DNA but do not yet know how it may influence people's behavior. Voles,...
