    Angela Davis, a former Communist Party USA leader and Black Panther, as well as a former member of FBI's Top Ten Most Wanted, recently spoke at George Washington University in Washington, D.C. Her speech, entitled "Freedom is a Constant Struggle: Why Movements for Social Justice Support Palestine," was far from impartial or fair. Her speech was co-sponsored by the Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP), the GW Black Student Union and GW Feminist Student Union. It was to kick off SJP's ‘Palestine Awareness Week' to promote awareness about the occupation of Palestine. Per Campus Reform, Davis did not mince words...
  • TIME: Don't Dismiss President Trump's Attacks on the Media as Mere Stupidity

    SNIP to the meat: The President routinely describes reporting he dislikes as FAKE NEWS. The Administration calls the press “the opposition party,” ridicules news organizations it doesn’t like as business failures, and calls for journalists to be fired. Mr. Trump has called for rewriting libel laws in order to more easily sue the press. This isn’t unprecedented in U.S. history, though you might have to go back to the Administration of John Adams to see something quite like it. And so far the rhetorical salvos haven’t been matched by legal or regulatory action. Maybe they never will be. But the...
  • ‘Don’t Talk to the Police!’: Law Professor’s Lecture About the 5th Amendment Is Going Viral

    When Regent University law professor James Duane first delivered his "Don't Talk to the Police!" lecture back in 2008, he likely had no idea that it would go viral again nearly a decade later. Duane's lecture, which encourages people to exercise their Fifth Amendment right to remain silent, has been getting renewed attention in the wake of Netflix's "Making a Murderer" documentary, which covers the trial of Steven Avery, who was found guilty in 2007 of killing photographer Teresa Halbach.

    He even hates us in the Oval Office. Or at least disrespects us, thinking that if he doesn't give us one more condescending lecture on how great Muslims are that we're going to start lynching them. Republicans are bad, Muslims are good, let's not talk tough. And, no, we're not actually going to go and fight the people who are at war with us. That's what Barack Obama said last night. Long past the point that everybody stopped listening to him, he is speaking more and more and saying less and less. And what he is saying has become completely...

    US President Obama has given the Europeans a harsh lecture on the dangers of their ongoing debt crisis. Offended by the unsolicited advice, Europeans have suggested the US get its own house in order first. Obama's remarks were "arrogant" and "absurd," German commentators say on Wednesday. Europeans are well aware of the seriousness of their ongoing debt crisis. But they don't, it seems, like to receive lectures from other countries -- especially the United States, which is struggling to deal with its own mountain of debt.

    Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) fired back Wednesday at President Obama, who admonished the Republican presidential candidate to watch his words more carefully. Perry said "actions speak louder than words" after Obama's public admonishment yesterday on CNN for Perry's comments that an expanded money supply by Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke would be "almost treasonous." "Yesterday the president said I needed to watch what I say," Perry told a crowd in New Hampshire at a politics-and-eggs breakfast, broadcast online. "I'd just like to respond, if I may: Mr. President, actions speak louder than words. My actions as governor

    Via Michael Moynihan at Reason. Remember Lars Vilks? A few years ago he decided to draw Mohammed as a pooch and has been dodging killers ever since, from garden variety Islamist nuts like “Jihad Jane” all the way up to the leader of Al Qaeda in Iraq. Funny thing, though: Not only wasn’t he intimidated, he practically dared the mujahedeen to come and get him, letting CNN cameras film his home and even booby-trapping the place in case the soldiers of Allah paid him an unexpected visit. Quote: Vilks has faced numerous death threats over the controversial cartoon, but said...

    Lars Vilks, the Swedish cartoonist who drew Mohammed as a dog, was recently told that a scheduled lecture on free speech, to be held at Jönköping Högskolan, would be canceled due to "security concerns." This, of course, is a common evasion, intended to protect the brittle sensibilities of Muslim students while supposedly standing four square behind the right of free speech. Alas, the administrators in Jönköping had a point. During a lecture in Uppsala today Vilks was attacked by a pack of feral fundamentalists, one of whom managed to headbutt the artist and break his glasses. Police intervened and waged...

    STOCKHOLM – A Swedish artist who angered Muslims by depicting the Prophet Muhammad as a dog was assaulted Tuesday as furious protesters interrupted his university lecture about the limits of free speech. Lars Vilks told The Associated Press a man leaped from the front row and head-butted him as he was delivering his lecture at Uppsala University, breaking Vilks' glasses but leaving him uninjured. Police later said the attacker was stopped before he could reach Vilks and that the artist may have bumped into plain-clothes officers who briskly evacuated him from the room. Three people were detained, but it wasn't...
