    truth revolt ^ | 11/19/15 | Mark Tapson
    The president of the UC Santa Cruz Jewish Student Union (JSU) was warned to abstain”from voting earlier this week on a pro-BDS resolution because he was “elected with a Jewish agenda.” JNS.org reports that the incident occurred prior to a vote by the council on an earlier Israel divestment bill. On Tuesday, the UCSC student council voted 28 for and five against, with seven abstaining, to reinstate a divestment resolution that had been vetoed in 2014. In a text message sent to President Daniel Bernstein prior to that vote, the sender wrote, “You will be abstaining, as the president of...

    In a display of moral narcissism that British columnist Melanie Phillips has characterized as a dialogue of the demented, Stanford students staged a public protest on October 19th to once again denounce Israel and, presumably, to honor the slain homicidal Palestinians who have so far claimed the lives of 11 Israelis in a recent spate of violence in Jerusalem and parts of Judea and Samaria. The protest, organized by the vitriolic Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP), followed in style and substance an equally debased display of moral self-righteousness at Berkeley, where a similar gathering on October 13th saw protesters...

The two teams will once again battle for the No. 1 overall ranking in the nation. Though this time, the more intriguing storyline might be of the matchup on the sidelines. Penn State head coach Russ Ross and Stanford head coach John Dunning are not only coaching legends in collegiate volleyball but theyre also long-time friends.

    Natural scientists agree that the climate is changing and that humans bear some of the blame. Social scientists are now attempting to assess the economic and political price societies are likely to pay for turning up our planets thermostat. The security policy community is especially eager for an answer. In the academy, the debate over climate change and its security implications gained momentum after researchers from Stanford, the University of California Berkeley, New York University, and Harvard observed that civil wars were more prevalent during years that experience hotter temperatures. The chief explanation for this relationship is that higher temperatures...

    Patients with chronic fatigue syndrome are accustomed to disappointment. The cause of the disorder remains unknown; it can be difficult to diagnose, and treatment options are few. Many patients are still told to seek psychiatric help. But two recent studies one from investigators at Stanford a few weeks ago and another from a Japanese research team published earlier this year have found that the brains of people with chronic fatigue syndrome differ from those of healthy people, strengthening the argument that serious physiological dysfunctions are at the root of the condition. Both studies were small, however, and their...

The university administration also tried to charge the organizers $5,000 for security costs, but backed down amidst public pressure after the organizers accused them of impos[ing] a tax on free speech.

One day at Stanford, after I left the White House, I asked Professor Roninson, Dean of the History Department, to send me a list of books of required reading by all students in a course on Citizenship, Hoover wrote. I found about one hundred books listed, of which some thirty were objective descriptives of the machinery of our civil government...

Professors from Loyola Marymount University and Stanford University analyzed surveys completed by more than 3,000 individuals when they were aged ten plus in 1987 and again a decade later. They concluded that men in their 20s and 30s who grew up with sisters and no brothers were 8.3per cent more likely to identify as Republican because they developed 'more traditional views of gender'.

    LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) Labor union members claim Proposition 32, which would limit how unions raise money for California political campaigns, would rob them of their political power. A clause in the proposition on the November ballot would prohibit unions from payroll-deducted funds for political purposes. Jack Pitney, a political science professor at Claremont McKenna College, said the provision weakens the ability of unions to participate in elections. They could still try to get voluntary donations from members, but without that steady stream of income via the payroll deductions, it would be a lot harder for them, he said. Maria...

    PALO ALTO, Calif. (AP) -- Stanford University's faculty voted Thursday to invite ROTC back to campus, nearly 40 years after the military program was barred from campus amid strong anti-war sentiments and anger over the military's ban on gays and lesbians. The Faculty Senate approved the move by a 28-9 vote, about a week after a campus committee recommended reinstating the Reserve Officers' Training Corps program, Stanford spokeswoman Lisa Lapin said. The approval came with an addendum voicing opposition to the military's policy of excluding transgender and medically disabled individuals from serving.

    How much should a college education cost? According to the College Board, the average cost of earning a degree at a private, 4-year university is now more than $100,000. If tuition prices continue to rise as quickly as they did during the past decade, a college degree will cost more than $200,000 by the time todays third-graders are applying. That price tag is enough to cause most parents to break into a sweat. Is a college degree really worth this cost? Some bright minds think Americans are paying way too much. In fact, Bill Gates--one of the country's most famous...

The real reason was (quoting the present committee's notes) "The majority (of the 1968-69 Ad Hoc Committee on ROTC) felt that the personal conduct standards of the three services 'can seriously limit the student's free participation in all facets of intellectual inquiry and legal political activity.'"

    Robert Stacy McCain points to a quote from a article written by the Professor, for HuffPo, in which his hatred for Sarah Palin is apparent: Palin has done what weak, self-centered people do when the going gets tough they quit and blame someone else. Yup...weak, self-centered people. Kinda like someone who preys on his own daughter: A Columbia University political science professor and past political analyst for CBS was arrested on charges of incest. Investigators say he engaged in three year long consensual relationship with his 24-year-old daughter. David Epstein, 46 was arrested on Wednesday and was arraigned...

    LOVELAND About 25 to 30 residents stood outside the Loveland Museum/Gallery this morning protesting a portion of an exhibit that appears to show Jesus Christ involved in a sex act. "This is not art, it's smut, pure and simple," said Ronald Minto, who said he's not against graphic art per se. But the color lithograph produced by Stanford University's Enrique Chagoya is outright pornography, he said. "This is a museum, not an X-rated book store," said Minto. The lithograph is spread over 12 panels, each about 7- by 7-inches, and is called "The Misadventures of the Romantic Cannibals." It's...

    As an American, I owe a tremendous debt of gratitude to many, many people who have risked and given their lives to defend our liberty. But as I reflect on the recent Supreme Court decision in McDonald v. City of Chicago, I thought I should take a moment to mention four Americans who have made a relatively uncelebrated contribution to the freedom I cherish and enjoy. I owe a special debt to four black men, and one gun. The most important of these men, to me, was my father. When I was a boy, he and my mother moved our...

    Dmitry Medvedev dining in San Francisco tonight Russian President Dmitry Medvedev is on a friendly visit to the Bay Area before flying across the country to meet with President Barack Obama, and he comes in peace. Which must be why he brought along the flagship of the Russian Navy's Pacific Fleet, the nuclear-capable missile cruiser Varyag. Makes total sense. Medvedev will be dining with Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and former Secretary of State George Schultz Tuesday night. On Wednesday, he'll be visiting technology companies including Twitter, Apple, Google and Cisco Systems, in part to promote an "innovation center" modeled on Silicon...

    The Securities and Exchange Commission knew since 1997 that R. Allen Stanford likely was operating a Ponzi scheme but waited 12 years to bring fraud charges against the billionaire, the agency inspector general said Friday. An SEC enforcement official who helped quash investigations of Stanford's business later legally represented him... The findings were the latest in a string of black eyes for the SEC, following a series of reports issued by Kotz's office last year that chronicled in detail how the agency bungled five investigations of financier Bernard Madoff's business between June 1992 and December 2008.

    Earlier this week, I criticized the American media for ignoring the rapidly-increasing number of scandals surrounding the IPCC, the University of East Anglia CRU, and the anthropogenic global-warming movement in general. Today, an American newspaper breaks news of yet another scandal involving AGW scientists and e-mail but this time here in the US. The Washington Times obtained e-mails sent through the National Academy of Sciences that show AGW scientists conspiring to attack critics: Undaunted by a rash of scandals over the science underpinning climate change, top climate researchers are plotting to respond with what one scientist involved said needs...

    WASHINGTON Three of every four Americans view climate change as a serious problem that will harm future generations if not addressed, according to an Associated Press-Stanford University poll. The survey also said that about the same number of people say the Earth probably already is warming, slightly fewer than the percentage expressing that view when asked the same question a year ago. The AP-Stanford poll of 1,005 adults contacted by telephone in November suggests that people's concerns about climate change have not changed significantly. That's contrary to several other recent surveys. In October, according to a poll of 1,500...

Heres some of Accuracy in Medias reporting on Jarrett and the Van Jones scandal. These alumni arent too pleased. From Ward S. De Witt 62: When I saw the cover photograph of Valerie Jarrett, I was reminded of the school fight song referring to Stanford Red. I am quite dismayed that this radical leftist is featured (I Want Her Inside the White House, September/October). She is, as you...
