    By Heat Street Staff | 7:11 pm, July 13, 2016 Purdue University this afternoon has issued a statement in the case of a student allegedly threatened with expulsion — and definitely the recipient of death threats — for criticizing Black Lives Matter on Facebook. Joshua Nash, a biology major who is gay and refers to himself as a “dangerous faggot” in his Twitter bio (a reference to conservative commentator Milo Yiannopoulos) was summoned to a mandatory “Administrative Meeting” after a student reported a posting of his made on Facebook. According to Nash, the Facebook posting was to the effect that...

    On Wednesday, July 6th, Purdue University summoned Joshua Nash to meet with the Director of Student Assistance in regards to a “comment on Facebook.” Nash believes this meeting is due to a post where he said that “Black Lives Matter is trash because they do not really care about black lives. They simply care about making money and disrupting events for dead people.”

    Today we have a pathetic but not entirely surprising epilogue to the saga of Jamie Newman, the Purdue University staffer who quit following outrage over his hate speech directed at pro-lifers: threats of litigation. First, Newman called campus pro-life activists “vile, racist idiots” who might be “evil” for informing their classmates of abortion’s disproportionate death toll among black babies. Then the outrage intensified when he told a commenter here at Live Action News, during an argument about abortions in rape cases: My hypothesis is that if your wife, daughter, sister, or mother were raped, you’d see to it that any...

    The Purdue University staffer who allegedly threatened online to rape pro-life women handed in his resignation Monday after refusing to apologize for his comments. Jamie Newman quit Monday morning amid outrage from students, the local community and pro-lifers across the nation, according to the Lafayette Journal & Courier. “Yeah, I just quit,” Newman wrote in an email to the newspaper. “Tell the world.” Purdue spokeswoman Julie Rosa said they accepted Newman’s resignation, which they believe is “the appropriate outcome” to the situation.

    A Purdue University staff member is being investigated after he allegedly threatened to rape pro-life women during an online debate about the campus pro-life club's recent campaign. The Purdue Students for Life group has been facing a heavy backlash this week after its members put up posters around campus that focused on how the abortion industry targets black women and their unborn babies for abortions. In coordination with Black History Month, the campaign posters read "Hands Up, Don't Abort" and "Black Children are an Endangered Race" and included the hashtag #BlackLivesMatter. On Monday, a small group of pro-abortion students and...

He is one reason the school is a rare exception to the rule of unreason on American campuses, where freedom of speech is under siege.

While in high school in Bowling Green, Ohio, Zeller completed three years of college undergraduate courses. He arrived at...

The students also released a set of demands, listed in Purdue's student paper. Among students' demands, they call on Purdue to "revise" their "free speech policy" based on what they believe is "hate speech." Part of the list reads, "We demand that the free speech policy be revised to address hate speech in person and through social media. We demand...

    Former Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels, upon passing on a run for the Republican nomination in 2012, took an interesting career turn. The famously fiscally conservative executive, who devised savings for the Hoosier state on everything from ??? to paper clips, became the head of Purdue University. Since then, Daniels has endured the predictable run-ins with his liberal faculty—over criticism of Howard Zinn’s American history— but also made real progress in the fight against rising college costs by harnessing some free-market incentives for academia.The university is now in its fourth year of a tuition freeze after more than 30 yearly...

    "We found that if lunar lava tubes existed with a strong arched shape like those on Earth, they would be stable at sizes up to 5,000 meters, or several miles wide, on the moon," said David Blair, a graduate student in Purdue's Department of Earth, Atmospheric, and Planetary sciences. "This wouldn't be possible on Earth, but gravity is much lower on the moon and lunar rock doesn't have to withstand the same weathering and erosion. In theory, huge lava tubes -- big enough to easily house a city -- could be structurally sound on the moon." The researchers applied known...

    On Friday, March 30, 2012, Hisham Y. Altalib visited the White House. According to visitor logs, Altalib was received by Joshua DuBois, the director of President Obama's Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships. Four days later, White House officials welcomed a foreign delegation of the radical Sharia-enforcing Muslim Brotherhood from Egypt. The White House meeting with overseas Muslim Brotherhood leaders was reported in April by a few mainstream journalists and questioned loudly by conservative media. But the White House confab in March with U.S.-based Altalib -- which appears to be a prep session with the global Muslim Brotherhood's American...

    President George H.W. Bush is displeased that Georgia Democrat Michelle Nunn is using his picture in ads for her Senate campaign. Nunn, who led Bush’s Points of Light Foundation until 2013, is touting her past Bush ties to counter claims by her Republican opponent, David Perdue, that Nunn is an Obama follower. In a new campaign ad, “Familiar,” Nunn highlights her former relationship with Bush, showing off a 2009 picture with the former President, as proof that she is able to work with Republicans and Democrats. But George H.W. Bush officially endorsed Perdue in September and is upset that Nunn...

    WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - The first case of Ebola transmitted between patients in America has experts across the country reviewing safety protocols. At Purdue University, Dr. David Sanders has been studying the virus since 2003 – specifically how this particular Zaire strain of Ebola enters human cells. While the virus has thus far only been shown to be transferred via bodily fluids, Sanders argues that it could become airborne. "It can enter the lung from the airway side," Sanders said. "So this argues that Ebola is primed to have respiratory transmission. "We need to be taking this into consideration," he...

In return, Purdue, a large public university in Indiana, offered the McCrackens the opportunity to name a small conference room in a lab building. They were also invited to supply language for a plaque that would be installed in the room. McCracken chose to name the room after his father, Dr....

    Did former governor, now university president, Mitch Daniels seek to censor the late Howard Zinn, a Communist prof who wrote the anti-American bestseller A People’s History of the United States? No, but that’s what the AP suggested. “Mitch Daniels looked to censor opponents,” ran the headline. “[E]mails obtained by The Associated Press show Daniels went out of his way during his second term as governor to destroy what he considered liberal breeding grounds at Indiana’s public universities.” The second bit appears to be true. And congratulations to Mitch Daniels for his efforts at swamp-clearing. Public universities should not be breeding...

The Associated Press obtained emails by then-Governor Daniels, now the President of Purdue: Purdue University President Mitch Daniels said Wednesday he never tried to quash academic freedom while serving as Indiana’s governor and criticized an Associated Press report citing emails in which he opposed use of a book by historian and anti-war activist Howard Zinn.

Organizers accused the school's board of trustees of skipping over more qualified candidates to recruit Daniels, who is set to take office when his term ends at the end of the year. "We are very offended at what seems to us sort of an inbred choice of a candidate who has a long history of hostility toward teachers and public education," said protester Aaron Hoover.

She twirled two football seasons, in 1954 and 1955, but the name given to her - Purdue’s Golden Girl - created a tradition that continues to this day.

In his memoir Fugitive Days, he admits planting bombs in federal buildings such as the Pentagon and the U.S. Capitol (“Everything was absolutely ideal on the day I bombed the Pentagon,” he writes). He was one of the founders of the radical terrorist group the Weather Underground. Escaping justice because of prosecutorial misconduct, he transformed himself into a respected academic, a distinguished professor at the University of Illinois-Chicago. There is perhaps no better symbol of the 1960s moral relativist than he. It is not every day that a self-described terrorist and...

    N.C. governor uses money from savings reserve for billsThe Associated Press March 11, 2009 BY GARY D. ROBERTSON RALEIGH - Gov. Bev Perdue took nearly $800 million in North Carolina's rainy-day reserve fund Wednesday to ensure the state has enough money to pay its bills, a move that divided legislative leaders over whether she can spend it. Perdue said she seized the savings reserve fund assembled by lawmakers as a "precautionary measure" to combat one of the sharpest declines in overall tax collections in recent state history. The governor said she would use $250 million of the $787 million immediately...

    WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. -- Purdue officials are investigating anti-Barack Obama graffiti found on the West Lafayette campus this week.

    The May 9 edition of the New York Post carries a short article by an Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis student named Keith John Sampson.

The same book is in the university library . . . . But that didn't...
