    If you haven’t heard of Joshua Clover before now, allow me to introduce him. Clover is a tenured professor at the University of California, Davis, and the author of nearly a dozen books. 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...

    PHRASES like “bringing home the bacon” and “flogging a dead horse” could be CULLED to avoid offending animal lovers, an academic has claimed. Shareena Hamzah, from Swansea University, claimed the growing popularity of veganism could see people give meat-based metaphors the chop. It could mean historical sayings such as "taking a bull by the horns" or “putting all one’s eggs in one basket” become a thing of the past. Shareena Hamzah, of Swansea University, claimed the growing influence of veganism will raise awareness of animal cruelty and put an end to meaty descriptions.

    Joseph Mifsud is a key figure in the investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian government Mifsud, a Maltese professor, told former Trump campaign aide George Papadopoulos that Russia had “thousands” of Hillary Clinton emails Mifsud emailed the FBI on Feb. 11, 2017, just after he was interviewed by investigators.

The email, reported by The Hill, seemingly shows what Mifsud told FBI...

    At the College of Southern Nevada, Professor emeritus Mark Bird shot himself in the arm in a restroom as a protest against President Trump's anti-gun control policies. "People like me should never be permitted to have a gun," Bird said. "The demented Second Amendment guarantee of the right to bear arms clearly failed to prevent me from shooting myself. Trump's unwillingness to repeal this Amendment is the cause of the injury I suffered from my self-inflicted wound." Bird acknowledged that "those who enacted the Second Amendment in 1789 inhabited a simpler and saner world than we do today. Back then...

    In a school shooting incident that you absolutely won’t hear about on CNN, a leftist professor decided that it would be a good idea to express his anger toward President Trump by shooting himself in a campus restroom. With the nation’s colleges now having been completely taken over by radicals who are able to brainwash receptive young minds with their hatred of capitalism and promotion of cultural Marxism, institutions of higher learning now serve as incubators for the raging anti-Americanism that has manifested itself on the socialist left. One of those “educators” apparently just had too much and in what...

    A tenured professor at New Jersey’s Rutgers University took self-loathing to a new level when he posted a profanity laden racist rant to Facebook declaring, “I hereby resign from my race.” Professor James Livingston, who is white, was picking up a burger from a restaurant in Harlem, New York, when he was so affronted by the behavior of a group of “little Caucasian a**holes” that he felt the overwhelming need to take to social media and denounce his own race: “OK, officially, I now hate white people,” Livingston began his post. He continued to say the burger shop was “overrun...

    There is a dominant belief that Christianity and Christians are againt abortion. In point of fact, many Christian communities recognize several circumstances in which abortion is accepted. The fact that abortion is acceptable in some cases means that the real social question is not whether women can have abortions, but which women and for what reasons? Prenatal health, Rape, Incest, and health of the Mother – PRIM. Evidence indicates widespread consensus and acceptance among many Christian denominations that abortion for PRIM reasons is justifiable. Of the 11 Christian statements included in a 2013 Pew Research Center study, only Roman Catholics...

    CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (CALLER TIMES) -- First, Patricia Polastri made slideshows about the new vegetation planted on Ocean Drive near Cole Park and the roaches and rodents it could bring. Next, she brought a plastic bag of dead cockroaches to a June City Council meeting and handed it to Interim City Manager Keith Selman. Now, Polastri has dressed like a cockroach herself to get her point across. "I lived there when we only had three palms in that section of Ocean Drive; now we have 35," she said. "In five blocks, we have 156 palms alone. The city is not...

    A Missouri professor readily admitted to having an abortion for selfish reasons in grad school. In a column Thursday in the Riverfront Times, Julie Setele, Ph.D., a professor of sociology and criminology at Webster University in St. Louis, defended her abortion and the infamous U.S. Supreme Court decision Roe v. Wade. Setele expressed concern about the open Supreme Court seat and the possibility of Roe v. Wade being overturned. She said women will be “oppressed” if they cannot legally abort their unborn babies. “It is vital that all people who can become pregnant have that choice,” she wrote. “It is...

    (CAMPUS REFORM) — A feminist professor at Virginia Tech University is warning that fossil fuels are contributing to a warped sense of “masculine identity” and “authoritarianism” among men. Cara Daggett, who teaches classes on politics and global security at Virginia Tech, penned her criticism of petro-masculinity in an essay “Petro-masculinity: Fossil Fuels and Authoritarian Desire” for the most recent issue of Millennium: Journal of International Studies. Writing in response to the 2016 election, Daggett coins the term “petro-masculinity” to describe what she sees as a convergence of “climate change, a threatened fossil fuel system, and an increasingly fragile Western hypermasculinity.”

    A New Jersey professor said Thursday that he “officially” “now hate[s] white people” in a Facebook post that was subsequently deleted. James Livingston, the Rutgers University history professor who made the remarks, proceeded to detail “little Caucasian a**holes” that annoyed him at a restaurant. “OK, officially, I now hate white people,” Livingston said. “I am a white people [sic], for God’s sake, but can we keep them — us — us out of my neighborhood?

    A Cambridge professor with deep ties to American and British intelligence has been outed as an agent who snooped on the Trump presidential campaign for the FBI. Multiple media outlets have named Stefan Halper, 73, as the secret informant who met with Trump campaign advisers Carter Page and George Papadopoulos starting in the summer of 2016. The American-born academic previously served in the Nixon, Ford and Reagan administrations. The revelation, stemming from recent reports in which FBI sources admitted sending an agent to snoop on the Trump camp, heightens suspicions that the FBI was seeking to entrap Trump campaign aides....

    University of Kentucky officials are trying to fire a tenured professor because they say he made students buy his book for classes he taught and then kept the proceeds without telling administrators. The move against journalism faculty Buck Ryan – who was sanctioned for inappropriate behavior in 2016 — is nearly unprecedented for tenured faculty in the last 50 years at UK, and will be a test of UK’s tenure policies and procedures. But UK struck a tough stance, with Provost David Blackwell saying in a statement to the Herald-Leader that Ryan “stole from students. And he used university resources...

Randa Jarrar, an English professor at the school (also known as California State University at Fresno), sparked outrage Tuesday just hours after the former first lady died at age 92, writing a number of tweets attacking Bush and the family. “Barbara Bush was a generous and smart and amazing racist who, along with her husband, raised a war criminal.
