  • Ohio State band director Jonathan Waters may fight firing

    Columbus Dispatch ^ | 7-25-14 | Collin Binkley
    Ohio State University fired marching band director Jonathan Waters yesterday after a two-month investigation found that band leaders ignored a “sexualized” culture among students and didn’t take sexual-harassment training as recommended. The firing came two weeks after OSU leaders told Waters he could keep the job if he enacted a zero-tolerance policy for sexual harassment, his attorney, David Axelrod, said yesterday. The firing was a surprise to Waters, Axelrod said. “Jonathan has not decided precisely what action he will take,” Axelrod said. “He intends to defend his good name in one way or another.” Ohio State fired Waters, 38, after...

    Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, is one of the most outspoken opponents of illegal immigration in Congress. On May 22, 2014, during a speech on the House floor, he argued that proposals to overhaul immigration laws are a Trojan horse for Republicans, since allowing illegal immigrants a path to citizenship will boost the number of Democratic voters and eventually doom the GOP. This is not the first time King has made this argument. Just over a year ago, King said that Ronald Reagan was wrong to have signed an "amnesty" law in 1986 that "gave Barack Obama about 15 million additional...

Though in apparent self-defense, many are demanding the shooter, George Zimmerman, be arrested. In lieu of such action, some are vowing to apply their brand of street justice. Unfortunately, they have an ally in President Obama. Speaking before reporters outside the White House on Friday, March 23, Obama implied Martin was a victim of a racially-motivated murder and cover-up.

The week before, Netanyahu had used a visit to Washington to convey the message that Israel was prepared to act alone if necessary.

    Ah, the Swamp Queen is doing what she does best: Throwing the weight of government around to intimidate private businesses and shake ‘em down. The Congressional Black Caucus is trying to help by organizing job fairs across the country. Congresswoman Maxine Waters also wants to help by putting more pressure on the big banks to help with mortgages. “If they don’t come up with loan modifications and keep people in their homes that they’ve worked so hard for, we’re going to tax them out of business,” said Waters.

    - By: Larry Walker, Jr. -At a community summit in Inglewood, California on Saturday, Democratic Congresswoman Maxine Waters stated, “This is a tough game. You can’t be intimidated. You can’t be frightened. And as far as I’m concerned, the ‘tea party’ can go straight to Hell.” And according to the video (here), she rambled on, “And, and I intend to help them get there.”So according to Democratic Representative Maxine Waters, if your son is a Tea Party sympathizer, he can go to Hell. You hear that Mom? If your father, mother, son, daughter, sister or brother agrees with the...

    According to Maxine Waters the Tea party “can go straight to hell”. But “VIVA FIDEL!” she chanted during the rapturous reception that greeted the Stalinist dictator’s visit to Harlem’s Riverside Church on Sept. 9, 2000. The overflow crowd packed the Church to suffocation and spilled from the doors onto the streets and sidewalks. "I came to Harlem because I knew it was here that I would find my best friends!" beamed the jailer of the longest suffering black political prisoners in modern history, inside the Harlem church that might still be radioactive except for Khrushchev foiling his fondest wish in...

    Democratic members of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) are ramping up anti-Tea Party sentiment this week, with one congresswoman calling the movement "the real enemy" in Florida on Monday night. "Let us all remember who the real enemy is. The real enemy is the Tea Party," Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-Fla.) said at a Miami town hall, according to a report by the Miami Herald. "The Tea Party holds the Congress hostage. They have one goal in mind, and that's to make President Obama a one-term president." Wilson's comments follow incendiary remarks about the Tea Party from another member of the...

    Rep. Maxine Waters, the despiteous Democrat from California, not only thinks tea-party people should go to hell – she has offered to show us the way. Do tell. First of all, the devil is from hell, so it stands to reason that one of his children would know the way back home. Her sudden outburst needs to be kept in context of what is actually taking place. Last week she offered feigned, tepid angst, which was supposedly intended to give the public appearance that she, her constituents and the Congressional Black Congress were upset with Obama for not paying attention...

    When it comes to acting “civil” it is in regards to this USA House of Representatives, Rep. Maxine Waters, (D/CA), the call to act “civil” has fallen on her deaf ears. This past Saturday, back home, Rep. Waters had nothing but harsh words to say about the tea party movement, from “The Daily Caller” : “This is a tough game. You can’t be intimidated. You can’t be frightened. And as far as I’m concerned — the tea party can go straight to hell.” IMHO, I am not surprise Rep. Waters would by those same words declare war against a movement...

    The rhetoric is starting to boil and Liberal Maxine Waters is more than willing to take the lead. With wit and candor, she displays the intellect and syntax she is known for, during a speech in Inglewood, California. The object of her criticism and scorn was the Tea Party. Her speech is trying to light the fires of racism and class warfare. Maxine is not enjoying the ehics investigation.
