  • Faculty enablers (Ward Churchill)

    CU committee would give Churchill a virtual pass For anyone who cares about the integrity of American higher education, recent reports that the University of Colorado's Privilege and Tenure Committee has recommended professor Ward Churchill be suspended for a year but not fired is a blow to the stomach. And bad news for CU, too. Don't get us wrong. We don't believe for a moment that President Hank Brown will actually adopt the committee's advice and let Churchill remain as a permanent blight on the Boulder campus. At the end of this month Brown will, we remain confident

    It's a brilliant Sunday morning, but the sunshine deceives. Step outside and the air is frigid, still below the freezing point. South University Avenue looks like a mirage in the windy cold. The winter just refuses to give up. The detritus of our national day of alcohol abuse - pardon me, St. Patrick's Day - litters the streets and yards of campus. Cracked green knickknacks are blown about. Partially-filled beer cans roll down South U. One block away, the Campus Chapel on 1236 Washtenaw Avenue opens its doors for Sunday service. On campus, the sacred and profane maintain an uneasy...

    LONDON -- U.K. intelligence officials have just provided a chilling assessment of the terrorist threat Britain faces. The country has become "al Qaeda target No. 1," security sources told me, confirming last week's press reports. Intelligence services now judge Britain's "home grown" terrorists to be organized, trained and controlled either directly from Pakistan or via Pakistani networks in Britain. Until now, intelligence services thought British Islamist terrorists had no hard links to al Qaeda despite sharing its ideology. "Clean skins" in the security jargon, they were believed to have acted alone or in self-constructed cells. This theory was the product...

    The left-leaning faction that dominates American higher education doesn't take kindly to strangers -- particularly those who challenge the prevailing academic orthodoxies. Just ask Harvard's Larry Summers. Or consider the escalating governance controversy at Dartmouth College. A few reformers have achieved a bit of influence, and now the New Hampshire school's insular establishment is doing everything it can to run them out of Hanover. Since 1891, Dartmouth has been among the handful of colleges and universities that allows alumni to elect leaders directly... In practice, the Trustees have been largely ornamental overseers, rubber-stamping the management decisions of the "progressive" college...

    The U.S. interstate highway system was built to give military tanks easy access to the inner cities in order to put down the expected revolution by black militants. The technocrats who died in the Twin Towers were the equivalent of little Adolph Eichmans. The United States government orchestrated the 9/11 attacks for its own benefit. The above three statements were all theories proffered by college professors: the first at Chicago State University in 1969, and the second by professor Ward Churchill of the University of Colorado in 2001. The third and most recent is by professor Kenneth Barrett at the...

    Grove City College publishes an excellent newsletter titled "Visions and Values." Its July 2006 edition features an interview with Dr. Richard Pipes, acclaimed Russian historian and Harvard University professor of Sovietology. The interview was conducted by Grove City College professor of political science Dr. Paul Kengor. Dr. Pipes, who served on the National Security Council during the Reagan administration, explained that there are actually only a few communists among academics. At first glance, that's a puzzling observation, given the leftist bias at most college campuses. Drs. Pipes and Kengor explain the puzzle in a way that makes perfect sense. While...

    Hired by the University of Wisconsin to teach “Islam: Religion and Culture,” this fall at the Madison campus, Kevin Barrett believes that the 9/11 attacks on America were planned and executed by the U.S. government and not the work of terrorists. Barrett co-founded Muslim-Jewish-Christian Alliance for 9/11 Truth. Barrett’s views have caused a divide in Wisconsin. Barrett and university officials have stated that Barrett’s personal views will not be discussed or taught in the class. Supporters of Barrett argue that he has the right to academic freedom. Some state legislatures called for the university to fire Barrett immediately. So which...

    IF his presidency ended now, US President George W.

And, 67 per cent of the 744 professors responding to the survey conducted by Siena College's Research Institute said they doubted Mr Bush "has a realistic chance of improving his rating" during his remaining time in office. The results of the survey were made public by the Albany-area research institute. "While time is needed to fairly and accurately gauge how well any president ranks with his predecessors,...

Writing in the London Review of Books, John Mearsheimer, a U. of C. political scientist, and his academic partner, Harvard University professor Stephen Walt, offered a simple diagnosis for what ails U.S. foreign policy. How did we get involved in a seemingly endless Iraq war? Why are we reviled in Muslim countries and targeted by terrorists?

    One of the most egregious manifestations of academic arrogance has been the effort to ban the military from campus – specifically military recruiters and the Reserve Officers Training Corps (ROTC). So many colleges and universities participated in this action that, in 1994, a law was finally passed by the Congress mandating that if a university wants to continue to receive federal funds then they have to permit the military to recruit. This law was challenged in court by several law schools. The "Forum for Academic and Institutional Rights (FAIR)," a group of law schools and professors, sued the Secretary of...

    THE MOST leftist-dominated institution in American life today is our system of higher education. Studies have shown that liberal faculty members outnumber conservatives in some disciplines by 30 to 1. At colleges and universities all over the country, the watchwords are "tolerance" and "diversity" - which, in the university world, means a community where everyone looks different but thinks alike. By now, the evidence of leftist dominance is so overwhelming that no one can credibly dispute it. But does that dominance really present a problem? Not to the left (of course). They would argue that their universities are havens of...

In case you’ve tuned out three years of protests and press conferences on campus, here’s the issue in a nutshell: the Solomon Amendment, first passed by Congress in 1994, blocks federal funding for universities that limit military recruitment. It poses a dilemma for Harvard Law School, which requires all on-campus recruiters to sign a pledge saying they won’t discriminate against gays and lesbians. The military, which bars gays and lesbians...

The United States stated two weeks ago that it intended to maintain control over the computers that serve as the Internet's principal traffic cops. In a report released Thursday, the U.N. panel outlined four possible options for the future of Internet governance for world leaders to consider at a November "Information...

    WASHINGTON — Megan Watson, leader of Mainstream Moms, is so angry at military recruiters for invading schools to sign up unwary youth for combat in Iraq that she and her group launched an online movement, “LeaveMyChildAlone.org.” “They offer these trinkets to lure our children to enlist,” Watson said in a phone interview from her home in Bolinas, Calif. “This is very aggressive, demographic targeting to have conversations with our kids that should not be happening.” All branches of the military are falling short of recruiting goals as parents say, in effect, “Hell no! My kids won’t go!” Watson blasted the...

    A.N.S .W.E.R.'s response to Bush:Hit the Streets September 24!Recognizing that the people of the United States have turned dramat ically against the war and occupation of Iraq, Bush went on national televi sion tonight to defend his imperial foreign policy. He repea tedly invoked September 11 as a pretext for the criminal and illegal war ag ainst Iraq. Bush took to the airwaves tonight because the antiwar m ovement is growing in strength. Our power poses a major poli tical obstacle to the continuation of the war and occupation. Now Bush has taken on the additional role of Recruiter-in-Chi ef, urging young people to sign up for military...

    Boston communists say they want a revolution. Now they just have to agree on how to bring it about. A pimple-faced teen with Coke-bottle glasses and a self-satisfied smirk stands near the doorway of Harvard Square’s tiny Revolution Books. He’s skinny and draped in a large black T-shirt adorned with a full-color portrait of Joseph Stalin, the iron-fisted despot responsible, directly or indirectly, for the deaths of millions. "Stalin is my friend," the kid says, at once cockily and geekily, as he stares at the floor. "Yeah, yeah, but we can do better than Stalin," says the guy behind the...

    The University of Colorado announced last week that it is expanding its apparently endless inquiry into misconduct by faux Indian Prof. Ward Churchill after a recent series by the Rocky Mountain News demonstrated: That Churchill has no Indian blood, as he claimed to obtain tenure. CU acted with far greater dispatch in the case of Prof. Phil Mitchell, canned in March after 20 years when his department chief discovered that he was a conservative and a Christian. The grounds for firing Mitchell, 1998 Teacher of the Year at CU, were that he quoted black conservative Thomas Sowell in a discussion...

    Queer Orthodoxy at the University of Colorado By Jon SandersFrontPageMagazine.com | June 8, 2005Academic Marxism shows up clothed in the attire of many scholarly courses of study.  In its most recent incarnation, academic Marxism makes an entrance as the sexy bedfellow of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender (LGBT) Studies at the University of Colorado at Boulder.There, in diligent pursuit of scholarly material, co-director of LGBT studies and English professor Mark Winokur  explored the Internet. But such a research tool as the computer is not without its ethical problems for Professor Winokur.  With the peculiarly tortured conscience of a Marxist, Winokur...

    The victory of two dark-horse candidates for Dartmouth College's board of trustees this week has revived a struggle over competing visions for the future of the small Ivy League campus. Peter Robinson, who wrote speeches for Ronald Reagan and is a fellow at the Hoover Institution, and Todd J. Zywicki, a George Mason University law professor who contributes to a libertarian-leaning web log, ran on platforms that were scathingly critical of the administration, saying it has become too politically correct and has stifled fraternities, de-emphasized athletics, and shortchanged teaching in favor of research.

    The U.S. Army, busy fighting off insurgents in faraway Baghdad, may be challenged on Canadian soil for the first time on May 2. A hostile collective of community members and students intends to "disrupt" the army's visit to the University of Toronto, after having intercepted a U.S. Army letter sent to university professors. Representatives of the U.S. Army International Technical Center Canada will be at the university Monday to give a presentation, where they will outline opportunities and goals for research collaboration with U of T faculty. In a faxed letter to the administrative assistant, office of the Vice Dean,...

    I’m here to announce that we are not a nation of scholars. Good lord, we’re barely literate. It’s a wonder that more of us don’t walk around with our knuckles dragging on the ground. And it’s about time that high school counselors and all the rest of us quit pretending that every 17 and 18 year old squirt should be shoehorned into colleges and universities. Probably half, maybe three-quarters of the kids wandering around the Groves of Academe have no legitimate reason to be there. Of course I realize that in order for those youngsters to be out in the...

    The story I'm about to relate took place on my visit to the Manoa campus of the University of Hawaii in Honolulu last week. It is entirely indicative of the unprofessional, ungracious, and unacceptable behavior of many professors on our college campuses, in this case the chairman of the Political Science Department at this school, a man named Jonathan Goldberg Hiller. The student who invited me to the University on behalf of the College Republicans -- I will call him Jamie -- is a political science major. In anticipation of my visit, Jamie had asked Professor Hiller if his Department...
