  • Top Democrat Prof. Says ‘I’veNever Seen any Politician w/Better Immigration Plan than Trump

    Demonstrating the broad appeal of his in-depth immigration plan released Sunday, Trump’s proposal has won the accolades of one of the nation’s leading experts on the H-1B visas program. The H-1B is a visa designed to provided corporations with cheaper and less experienced guest workers to fill technology jobs. Norm Matloff, a professor at UC Davis, has written extensively about H-1B visa abuses, and his work is widely cited in the H-1B reform community. Matloff, a self-described Democrat and “longtime admirer of Sen. Bernie Sanders, gave Donald Trump’s H-1B policy “an A+” and was pleased that the Republican frontrunner was...

    Overpasses For America ^ | February 8th, 2016 | Mark Thies
    I first met Sen. Marco Rubio at a Republican fundraiser in 2014 where he was the featured speaker."Hi, my name is Mark Thies", I said. "I'm an Engineering Professor at Clemson.""Engineers!", he said. "Boy, we sure need a lot more of them, don't we!"I shook my head in wonder at his comment. Indeed, if you get your news from the mainstream media you might think there's a big shortage of students in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). The truth, however, is quite different. For example, Clemson's engineering enrollment has reached almost 5,300 students - an 80 percent increase since 2008! In my...

    In a morally coherent world, the chilling statement “Hamas & Sharia law have taken over UC Davis” would not have been spoken publicly, and certainly not by an elected student leader at an American public university. But in California, the veritable epicenter of academic anti-Israelism and its attendant stealth jihad, this statement, spoken last week by student leader Azka Fayyaz during a divestment resolution debate at the University of California, Davis, is par for the course, and indicative of how debased the conversation about the Israeli/Palestinian conflict has actually become.

    An anti-Israel University of California at Davis student leader claims that she has been unfairly attacked over a pro-Hamas Facebook posting by a group of nebulous “Zionist lobby groups,” according to an article she wrote Tuesday in The California Aggie, the school newspaper.

Davis student senate, has come under fire in recent days after she wrote that “Hamas and Sharia law have taken over UC Davis” following the successful adoption by the student council of a resolution to boycott Israel.-snip-“If a movement is not controversial, if no one is mad, it’s not strong enough &...

    Anti-Israel activists at the University of California, Davis heckled Jewish students and shouted “Allahhu Akbar” at them during a vote last week on a resolution endorsing a boycott of the Jewish state, according to video of the event obtained by the Washington Free Beacon. The commotion erupted late Thursday evening as pro-Israel students attempted to counter a student government resolution to divest from Israel as part of the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement. Activists waving Palestinian flags shouted at the Jewish and pro-Israel students as they left the meeting room ahead of an eight to two vote in favor...

    DAVIS--On Saturday morning – the holiest day of the week for Jews – swastikas spray painted in red on their Jewish frat house were the last thing these brothers expected to wake up to. “I’m a freshman so I’ve never had to deal with such outward show of hate towards me and my people,” Itai Ofir said. Ofir and his Jewish fraternity Alpha Epsilon Pi call it anti-Semitism at its worst. “I mean, you can see throughout history many Arab countries have tried to take down Israel,” Nir Voloshin said. Pro-Israel students say they feared recent events would lead to...

    Azka Fayyaz was probably being ironic, but what she said was closer to the truth than she would probably be willing to admit. Islamic Jew-hatred has taken over UC Davis, with the willing collusion of the administration.

    DAVIS (CBS13) – A Jewish fraternity woke up to the hate symbols spray-painted on their home Saturday morning. Two red swastikas were found painted on Alpha Epsilon Pi’s house, an off-campus fraternity. The Davis Police Department says they are investigating the incident as a hate crime. AEPI brothers believe the vandalism was done in retaliation to their support for Israel, as this week the student body voted to pass an act that will urge the UC Regents to divest from companies that provide resources to Israel. The frat brothers say they’ve been very outspoken at those “divestment meetings” and believe...

    The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has given an award of $1,123,463 to the University of California, Davis to develop “relatively small, inexpensive robots” to aid in harvesting strawberries. The announcement was made in late October as part of a series of USDA awards “to spur the development and use of robots in American agriculture production,” according to a USDA press release. The release describes the UC Davis robotics grant as a “project (that) will develop relatively small, inexpensive robots to aid in human harvesting of strawberries.” …

    John Pike -- the University of California, Davis police lieutenant whom the university fired for pepper spraying Occupy protesters Nov. 18, 2011 -- has filed a workers' compensation claim based on a "psychiatric injury." UC should change its motto from "Fiat lux" ("Let there be light") to "Fiat meum" ("Where's mine?"). The protesters got theirs when they sued the University of Deep Pockets. Ironically, they were protesting rising tuition while telling themselves they were underdogs who courageously stood up to authority. Please, their demands for more state money were in perfect harmony with the aspirations of UC brass. Protesters set...

    The University of California will pay damages of $30,000 to each of the 21 UC Davis students and alumni who were pepper-sprayed by campus police during an otherwise peaceful protest 10 months ago, the university system announced Wednesday. The agreement, which must still be approved in federal court, also calls for UC to pay a total of $250,000 to the plaintiffs’ attorneys and set aside a maximum of $100,000 to pay up to $20,000 to any other individuals who join the class-action lawsuit by proving they were either arrested or directly pepper-sprayed, a university statement said. A video released online,...

    San Francisco Chronicle ^ | 4/14/12 | Debra J. Saunders
    You have to really work at it to get arrested at a University of California campus protest. University administrators look at protest as part of the education process - and they frequently issue memos stating how much they agree with left-wing causes. Administrators don't want campus police to arrest students - especially students who attend demonstrations against state cuts to higher education. Thus students have had to ramp up dissident behavior if they want to be handcuffed and detained. Campus activists have begun to follow Occupy Wall Street's lead and set up tents to create illegal encampments. When campus police...

    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Faculty members at a California university where campus police pepper-sprayed a group of peaceful Occupy protesters have voted against a motion that would have expressed a lack of confidence in the ability of the school's chancellor to lead the campus, university officials said Friday. Members of the University of California, Davis Academic Senate had two weeks to vote on a motion that would have expressed "no-confidence" in Chancellor Linda Katehi's leadership after the widely condemned pepper-spray incident. The final tally showed faculty members voted 697-312 against the motion, officials said.
