    A feminist studies professor at a California state university accused of forcibly grabbing an anti-abortion activist’s poster and assaulting the 16-year-old girl has pleaded no contest to three misdemeanor charges. University of California at Santa Barbara Associate Professor Mireille Miller-Young was charged with one count each of grand theft, vandalism and battery in connection to the March 4 incident involving 16-year-old Thrin Short, her older sister, Joan, and other pro-life activists who were holding signs in a free speech zone on the campus when the professor went berserk. Miller-Young, who remains employed by the university, and her attorney, Catherine Swysen,...

    A sociopath runs amok—and kills more men than women—and feminists ride their hobbyhorse. Over 77 percent of all U.S. murder victims in 2012 were male; targets of non-lethal shootings are even more disproportionately male. Four of the six homicide victims of Elliot Rodger, the lunatic narcissist who went on a killing spree in Santa Barbara in revenge for female rejection, were male. And yet the feminist industry immediately turned this heartbreaking bloodbath into a symbol of America’s war on women.

    Breitbart's Big Journalism ^ | May 27, 2014 | AWR Hawkins
    On May 27, The Daily Beast's Cliff Schecter took a different tact from other gun control proponents, who have simply ignored the fact that Elliot Rodger stabbed and killed as many people as he shot and killed, when he tried to lessen the significance of that fact by saying stabbing victims in other recent mass attacks were not killed. In other words, the fact that the same number of people died from knife wounds as died from bullet wounds in Santa Barbara means nothing because stabbings do not consistently kill. Here are Schecter's exact words: "And although, tragically, three young...

    A gunman in a black BMW opened fire on crowds of people Friday night in a Southern California seaside town near UC Santa Barbara, killing six people and injuring seven others in what investigators described as a "mass murder" rampage. The gunman was later involved in at least one shootout with sheriff's deputies and died of a gunshot wound to the head, Santa Barbara County Sheriff Bill Brown said at a Saturday morning news conference. He could not confirm whether the gunshot was self-inflicted. Seven victims were hospitalized and at least one of them had undergone surgery for life-threatening injuries,...

    A nighttime drive-by shooting in a student enclave next to the University of California, Santa Barbara left seven people dead -- including a suspect -- and several wounded, authorities said.

A student told the station he saw shots fired from a BMW,...

    About 100 people were arrested and at least 44 people were taken to the hospital during a weekend college party in Southern California that devolved into an out-of-control street brawl, authorities said. The violence broke out in the densely populated beachside community of Isla Vista around 9:30 p.m. Saturday during the annual spring break party known as Deltopia, the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office said. Sheriff’s spokeswoman Kelly Hoover said things escalated after a University of California, Santa Barbara police officer was hit in the face with a backpack filled with large bottles of alcohol.

    I assure you, the urge to rage will long outlast the budget of Santa Barbara to keep sending in large numbers of police. It should be noted that 85 percent of complaints received about noise, music and disturbing the peace are called in by law enforcement themselves, in order to “justify” the dissolution of social gatherings in Isla Vista. They treat the UC students as if they didn’t have to work hard to get here, and they treat the CC students like they’ll never amount to anything of substance. Contrarily, SBCC and UCSB are beacons of the educational process in...

The College Fix reported on March 12 that department of feminist studies professor Mireille Miller-Young, whose research emphasis is black studies, pornography, and sex work, had been caught on camera assaulting a 16-year-old student, Thrin Short.

    UCSB Press Release: “OIL AND GAS SEEPAGE FROM OCEAN FLOOR REDUCED BY OIL PRODUCTION” (Santa Barbara, Calif.) Next time you step on a glob of tar on a beach in Santa Barbara County, you can thank the oil companies that it isn’t a bigger glob. The same is true around the world, on other beaches where off-shore oil drilling occurs, say scientists, although Santa Barbara’s oil seeps are thought to be among the leakiest. Natural seepage of hydrocarbons from the ocean floor in the northern Santa Barbara Channel has been significantly reduced by oil production, according to two recently...

    SANTA BARBARA, Calif. - A student government attempt to financially punish the campus newspaper at the University of California, Santa Barbara was vetoed by the student body president. The Associated Students Legislative Council voted 13-5 to withhold money from The Daily Nexus because advertising space was sold to a company considered politically offensive by some council members. But council president Jared Goldschen vetoed his colleagues' decision, explaining two lawyers told him the student council's vote was possibly illegal. Goldschen said he was troubled by freedom of speech issues. Money from student fees - about $17,000 a quarter - augments the...

    WASHINGTON -- A Pentagon document classifies homosexuality as a mental disorder, decades after mental health experts abandoned that position. The document outlines retirement or other discharge policies for service members with physical disabilities, and in a section on defects lists homosexuality alongside mental retardation and personality disorders. Critics said the reference underscores the Pentagon's failing policies on gays, and adds to a culture that has created uncertainty and insecurity around the treatment of homosexual service members, leading to anti-gay harassment. Pentagon spokesman Lt. Col. Jeremy M. Martin said the policy document is under review. The Pentagon has a "don't ask,...
