    Georgetown University professor and former NPR editor Kitty Eisele lamented on Sunday that protesters in Washington, D.C., had not attacked the Trump International Hotel. "Shame they aren't noticing the Trump Hotel which costs more and has a more problematic clientele," she responded to a tweet noting the vandalism of the Hay-Adams, a luxury hotel near the White House. The Trump Hotel, also located near the White House, is a popular hangout spot for Trump administration members and allies. Formerly the Old Post Office and Clock Tower, Donald Trump developed the property into a hotel and opened it in 2016. Eisele,...

    An Israeli professor who made waves in early April for insisting that the coronavirus will play itself out after 70 days regardless of intervention levels says that he has been proved right, and that claims the virus will return in force for a second wave are just speculation. “It’s very amusing that people talk about a second wave,” Isaac Ben-Israel, a prominent mathematician, chairman of Israel’s Space Agency, and a former general, told The Times of Israel. “How do they know there will be a second wave? And how do they know that it will come in the winter?” However,...

    A professor at a New Jersey university is blaming President Trump and his supporters for the impact of the coronavirus outbreak, claiming it’s their fault African-Americans have been dying at a disproportionate rate. “F--- each and every Trump supporter.

In another post, Cooper wrote that she and other African-Americans suspect that recent efforts to reopen the country following...

    A Yale psychiatrist who repeatedly has issued long-distance diagnoses of President Trump without having met him, now is going after Trump supporters. Bandy Lee says they resemble "child soldiers" and easily could turn into "armed troops in the streets" if the president doesn't win re-election in the fall. Salon reports Lee, a forensic psychiatrist at the Yale School of Medicine, claimed the "armed protests" are a natural evolution of the loyalty Trump "demands from his supporters." She previously urged the House Judiciary Committee to interview "mental health experts" during the Democrats' impeachment of Trump.

    A popular international relations professor at the University of Copenhagen says that unless the world takes more unified action to fight climate change, we may need an armed intervention. Yes, Ole Wćver is suggesting that if we don’t get in line with the climate change hysteria the media is pushing, armed invasions may be the only solution. “At some point this whole climate debate is going to tip over,” he tells RN’s Late Night Live. “The current way we talk about climate is one side and the other side. One side is those who want to do something, and the...

    Oftentimes, the climate alarmists are their own worst enemy. It sounds reasonable enough that carbon emissions might have an impact on the climate, but it's a rather nasty thing to prove, especially when alarmist predictions fail, over and over again. It's far from the "scientific consensus." But the alarmists don't tone down their rhetoric — they ratchet it up to 11. They want to take away your plastic straws, your cars, your burgers. Then there's this behavioral scientist in Sweden who wants us to eat human flesh to deal with the effects of climate change. No, this isn't The Onion...

    Tribe first said that Trump should be impeached for inciting violent acts, then took it a step further and outright accused the president of the United States of terrorism. “How many more people have to DIE violent deaths at racist hands before impeaching the president for inciting white nationalist terrorism and violence is taken as seriously as impeaching him for obstructing justice? The real national emergency is Donald J. Trump’s terrorism,” Tribe tweeted Sunday morning.

He’s also a big fan of social media, or at least he used to be. Before taking his Twitter account private, it seems that the professor really enjoyed mixing it up with other users, including a number of charming tweets where he wished that more police officers would be murdered. Even in California, that was a bridge too far for some, but Clover remains on the...

Shareena Hamzah, of Swansea University, claimed the growing influence of veganism will raise awareness of animal cruelty and put an end to meaty descriptions.
