    How many hateful acts are actually committed by “rightists”? So few, apparently, that leftists have repeatedly seen fit to fake them.Yet another example comes to us from Chicago’s North Park University in Illinois, where an openly bisexual college student was found to have fabricated a story about having received anti-homosexual, pro-Trump notes. As NBC 5 had reported November 15, before the deception was revealed: Taylor Volk says she is openly bisexual — and last week the North Park University senior from DeKalb was singled out by a hateful note she found taped to her door Friday morning. The note reads...

    At least 2,000 educators around the country reported racist slurs and other derogatory language leveled against white students in the first days after Donald Trump was elected president. But the group that surveyed the teachers didn’t publish the results in its report on Trump-related “hate crimes.” (Skip) The SPLC’s widely cited report — “The Trump Effect: The Impact of the 2016 Presidential Election on Our Nation’s Schools” — reported that 40 percent of the more than 10,000 educators who responded to the survey “have heard derogatory language directed at students of color, Muslims, immigrants and people based on gender or...

Last month, the student asked the local police department to shut down the investigation into the incident, yet police did not reveal the reason for her request.

    The urgent threat of climate change means there is “no time to despair” over the election of Donald Trump, according to former vice-president Al Gore, who hopes that Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton will join an escalated climate campaign against the president-elect. Gore told the Guardian he remained hopeful Trump would reverse some of his positions on climate change but predicted an unprecedented backlash from environmentalists over the next four years.

Lose him like a bad case of the flu. Mitt is bad karma. He didn’t just not vote for Trump, he actively tried to humiliate and destroy Trump. He denigrated Trump. He was jealous, vicious and hateful towards Trump- a very bad combination. He called a press conference with one purpose: to bad mouth Trump. He called Trump a "con man, phony and fraud.” The millions of Americans who believed in Trump…who fought for Trump…who defended Trump against...

    President-elect Donald Trump met Monday with former Vice President Al Gore and discussed climate change, as the two men with opposing views of the issue sought common ground.

    Villanova University has ended its probe into a report of a black female student who allegedly was knocked down by young white males yelling "Trump" because the student does not want to pursue the matter, according to the university.

    Barack Obama was recently seen sporting an Aleistar Crowley T-shirt during a trip to the gym. Aleistar Crowley, who died in 1947, gained widespread notoriety during his lifetime, being a recreational drug experimenter, bisexual and an individualist social critic. As a result, he was denounced in the popular press as “the wickedest man in the world” and erroneously labelled a Satanist. Crowley used anti-Semitic slurs and had mixed feelings for the Jews.

    Cement, the ubiquitous material used to build roads, buildings and other infrastructure, absorbs about one billion tons of atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) annually, according to a new study published Monday in the journal Nature Geoscience. But concrete carbonation is “not currently considered in emissions inventories” kept by the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), according to the study’s co-authors, an international team of researchers led by Professor Dabo Guan of the U.K.’s University of East Anglia. The study found that cement’s natural carbonation process not only offsets the fossil fuel emissions released during its production, it also “represents a...
