    An anti-Trump professor at Georgetown University went on a profanity-laced Twitter rant against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, who has been accused of committing a sexual assault as a teen. Dr. Carol Christine Fair is an associate professor in the Security Studies Program at Georgetown, according to the school’s website. Fair referred to “Kreepy Kavanaugh” as a “perjurer” and a “rapist” on her verified Twitter account, adding that “nothing has changed since Anita Hill.” Fair also said the “GOP doesn’t care about women. We knew this. F--- them.” In another tweet about Kavanaugh, Fair referred to the GOP as “pro-rape,...

    When press and camera crews from a number of outlets gathered outside her door — as a sexual assault allegation left the Supreme Court nomination of her husband, Brett Kavanaugh, hanging in the balance — Ashley Estes Kavanaugh delivered cupcakes. According to at least one reporter, CBS’ Kathryn Watson, Kavanaugh offered up cupcakes from Sprinkles, a cupcake bakery in Georgetown. Watson’s tweet spurred several reactions. First, people asked, “why are you at his house?” and criticized the media for camping out at his house.

    Asked why they had quit their office jobs and set off on a biking journey around the world, the young American couple offered a simple explanation: They had grown tired of the meetings and teleconferences, of the time sheets and password changes. “There’s magic out there, in this great big beautiful world,” wrote Jay Austin who, along with his partner, Lauren Geoghegan, gave his two weeks’ notice last year before shipping his bicycle to Africa... Then came Day 369, when the couple was biking in formation with a group of other tourists on a panoramic stretch of road in southwestern...

    In America today there is nothing worse than being called a racist. You can’t easily defend yourself against the life-changing, sometimes career-ending smear which evildoers can wield with impunity. “There is nothing worse for your career,”  New York State Assemblyman Kieran Lalor (R), said on Fox and Friends, “there’s nothing worse for you as a person. A lot ofpeople don’t want to speak up because they’re going to be accused of being a racist.” Yet outrageous, even genocidal, statements are issued every day now by hate-filled black supremacists and their radical allies. In a case of deviancy having been...

    In 2016, NASA sequenced DNA in space for the first time, but alien life, we may soon discover, may be vastly different on other planets and moons, particularly as we expand our efforts to explore ocean worlds with our solar system and beyond. “Most strategies for life detection rely upon finding features known to be associated with Earth's life, such as particular classes of molecules,” the researchers wrote. DNA and RNA are the building blocks of life on Earth, but the molecules of life might differ substantially on another planet. A new paper by scientists at Georgetown University, published online...

    The Bible’s condemnation of homosexual acts should be taken in “context” with Biblical times, Jesuit Father James Martin told Georgetown University students recently. Martin said as well that Catholics who support gay “marriage” should have no problem considering themselves Catholic, despite having chosen to reject Church teaching. Martin inferred at his January 31 appearance at the Jesuit school that the Bible’s negative pronouncements on homosexual acts – which are grounded in natural law – are like other Biblical declarations on topics such as the practice of charging interest on a loan. These pronouncements being made during a particular epoch renders...

    Georgetown claims absence of proper funding mechanism responsible Georgetown University claimed Friday that the absence of a proper funding mechanism was responsible for the mysterious misappropriation of at least $400 in donations to a family values student club that has been censured on campus as "homophobic" for its religious stance. Love Saxa, which promotes traditional views of dating and marriage, alerted the university Thursday to the alleged misdirection of the funds in a letter sent by the Alliance Defending Freedom, a religious freedom legal advocate, to Georgetown President John DeGioia. From November to December 2017, at least $400 in donations...

    A piece of Canada that broke off about 1.7 billion years ago has been found in Australia. Geologists analyzed chemical signatures for very ancient sedimentary rocks in Georgetown, Queensland, that offer clues about where those rocks were when they formed. At that time, the continents were drifting together to form a supercontinent called Nuna or Columbia. The data suggests that the Georgetown rocks broke off from Canada and collided with northern Australia around 1.6 billion years ago. It remained there even after Nuna broke apart 300 million years later. The researchers found a geological signature that "cannot be linked with...

    Catholic Georgetown University is offering LGBT-only, on-campus housing, claiming it advances its "Jesuit values." As one of the nation's oldest and most prominent Catholic universities, Georgetown is continuing to flaunt Catholic Church teaching on human sexuality by allowing LGBT-only living facilities for students for the 2018–19 school year. The website, Campus Reform, obtained emails with details on the new Crossroads: Gender and Sexuality Living Learning Community (LLC) facility open only to people who claim the LGBT identity.

    We have been inundated for years with stories--indeed, books and conferences and seminars--in which we are told that it is impossible to find good jobs without a college degree. If fact, Georgetown has a center dedicated to sounding that very alarm in every way possible. Nevertheless, when you look at their data, you find that, as usual, the current wisdom on that is not necessarily the case. Amber Northern from the Thomas Fordham Institute did just that. "In looking at the national breakdown of good jobs, 55 percent of those workers hold at least a bachelor's degree," she writes. "And...

    HOUSTON - U.S. Coast Guard officials are trying to make contact with a Texas-bound, single-engine plane they say is missing. Officials say the plane took off from Oklahoma City Wednesday and was headed to Georgetown Municipal Airport but diverted at some point and headed south. Coast Guard officials say they lost contact with the pilot after the plane flew past Freeport. The New Orleans Coast Guard is sending a plane to make communication with the aircraft. Officials have not said at this time whether the plane crash. They are labeling the incident an "aircraft emergency." It is unknown at this...

    Many are recognizably Catholic in that they have the reputation for being so, largely due to their age. Moreover, they advertise their Catholicism on their websites but when you go to their catalogs, you find material well beyond St. Augustine and Thomas Aquinas. The young staffers at the Young America's Foundation did just that and offer a neat little guide to several of these universities. For example, at Georgetown you can take courses in: • Labor/Sexuality/Globalization; • Athletics and Gender; • Culture/Politics/HIV; • Gender and Sustainability; and • The Bible and Horror. Providence College, meanwhile, has a Women's Studies department...

    Love Saxa stands it ground It is rare to find students at modern American colleges that are fiercely committed to the traditional view of marriage as a lifelong institution involving one man and one woman.One such group of students exists at Georgetown University–a Catholic institution. Yet it was recently subjected to a barrage of criticism and activist efforts that very nearly cost it its official status as a university organization, and it continues to be targeted by opponents.This fall, Love Saxa, a student group committed to the Catholic Church’s teaching on marriage, was accused of being a “hate group” because it did...

    Georgetown, amid years of reports that its Middle East Studies were compromised by apologists for violent extremists, if not outright terrorists, has, if anything, doubled down on its approach. "Breaking news on the discipline of Middle East studies is seldom kind to Georgetown University," a report from Campus Watch notes. "In July 2017 came word that the Bridge Initiative of the Saudi-funded Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding (ACMCU) had hired former Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) national legal director Arsalan Iftikhar as a senior research fellow." "With the appointment, Bridge/ACMCU has effectively become a branch of...

    Just one day after Michael Flynn pleaded guilty to lying to the F.B.I. in the Russia investigation, reports have surfaced accusing a veteran investigator in the special probe of sending disparaging text messages regarding President Donald Trump. The investigator was removed from the probe a few months ago because of the potential of a political bias. The New York Times and The Washington Post both reported December 2 that Peter Strzok, a senior counterintelligence investigator at the F.B.I., was removed from the probe because several disparaging text messages indicated he wasn’t a fan of Trump and was possibly a Hillary...

    Georgetown’s website proclaims it is “the oldest Catholic and Jesuit institute of higher learning in the United States” and is “deeply rooted in the Catholic faith.” One campus group is learning, however, Georgetown’s roots might not be deep enough. Love Saxa is a recognized student group on the Georgetown campus, and it exists “to promote healthy relationships on campus through cultivating a proper understanding of sex, gender, marriage, and family among Georgetown students.” Given the emphasis the Catholic Church puts on these issues (for example, see here and here), and Love Saxa’s alignment with church doctrine, one might believe it...

    After speaking at Georgetown, Muslim Brotherhood leader seeks to lobby U.S. Congress Amr Darrag, a senior member of Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood, will be speaking at Georgetown University on Thursday, and he is trying to extend his speaking gig into a lobbying tour, as other Brotherhood-aligned delegations have done in the past. U.S. officials and members of Congress would be wise to decline Darrag’s requests for meetings: The Muslim Brotherhood is an international hate group that seeks to overthrow the region’s existing governments, and Washington should have no interest in allowing the Brotherhood to score a propaganda victory by giving Darrag...
