  • Cal State lecturer suspended for hitting College Republicans member

    Washington Times ^ | Feb 27, 2017 | Jessica Chasmar
    A faculty member at California State University, Fullerton has been suspended after striking a College Republicans member during a campus protest earlier this month. The altercation occurred Feb. 8 as pro-Palestine students and counter-protesters marched peacefully through campus. Anthropology part-time lecturer Eric Canin reportedly approached the group of counter-protesters — many of them being CSUF College Republicans members — and tried to rip a sign out of a student’s hand. Mr. Canin was accused of then striking another student who tried to step between them. The group’s president, Chris Boyle, said he witnessed the hit and proceeded to restrain Mr....

    As a Republican for the overwhelming majority of my adult life when doing so put my career at risk, I was extremely saddened over President Bush's comments today in reference to President Trump. Growing up under Reagan and a conservative instructed and informed by Free Republic since its formation, I'm reminded constantly of the Reagan Rule and how it relates to my own beliefs as a Jew. Is there any way to change my Freeper name to something more appropriate?

    ANN ARBOR, Mich. - A father of four from Metro Detroit is facing possible deportation Monday after having lived in the United States for 18 years. Yousef Ajin's supporters are growing louder after he was detained last month during a routine check-in with agents from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. He was working toward gaining his citizenship. Ajin's loved ones and friends and local leaders are rallying around him in an effort to keep the family together. A deportation hearing for Ajin is scheduled for 2 p.m. Tuesday at the Patrick V. McNamara Federal Building. The family hopes for a...

    Washington Times ^ | Monday, February 27, 2017 | By Stephen Dinan
    The government flagged more than 1.6 million foreign visitors for overstaying their visas from 2013 to 2015, but deportation agents said they fell too low on President Obama’s list of priorities to bother targeting for removal, according to a watchdog report released Monday. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the deportation agency, concluded that it would cost too much to pursue the overstays, the Government Accountability Office said. ICE’s Enforcement and Removal Operations branch instead chose to focus on illegal immigrants who jumped the border and who amassed serious criminal records — the priorities Mr. Obama laid out. Overstays pose an...

    The bishops of Malta have issued an invitation to Catholics on the island nation to show “mercy and pastoral discernment” to those living in difficult family situations. In a letter, to be read out in churches all over Malta and Gozo, the two Bishops Charles Scicluna and Mario Grech explain that they have recently issued guidelines for priests, aimed at accompanying couples and families “in complex situations, especially those involving separated or divorced persons who have entered a new union”. The bishops say that although these people may have “lost their first marriage”, many of them “have not lost their...

    Since Donald Trump took office there has been ubiquitous media coverage of what can most properly be termed crap. There was the fake story about the bust of Martin Luther King that was supposedly removed from the Oval Office. There was the New York Times’ slanted report claiming contacts of some frequency between the Donald Trump campaign and The Russians! And more recently, there was the pitiful Associated Press piece screaming about the new administration’s plans to use the National Guard to deport illegal aliens. Those are just some highlights of what the president has taken to gleefully term “fake...

His argument: Stocks are very overbought and sentiment is way too bullish for the so-called Trump rally to continue. "Very simply, the market starts to go down. As it goes down, it will start triggering selling, and then it will be like an avalanche," said Faber recently on CNBC's Futures Now. "I would...

    SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — An exclusive new Survey USA poll offered a stunning snapshot of where the Bay Area stands on immigration Monday, with the new numbers revealing that more local residents are backing President Trump’s policies than you might think. The KPIX 5 Survey USA Poll showed more than half of people support a key element of the President’s immigration policy. 53 percent said local law enforcement should always contact federal authorities about illegal immigrants who commit violent crimes. The even bigger surprise was the number of Bay Area Hispanics who supported notifying the feds. While the mayors...

The Social-Democratic PM, whose country holds the current EU presidency, added that the Roman Catholic leader may “provide things other politicians miss”.

    President Trump has been walking a difficult road since he entered office just under a month ago. Compared to what he is facing while in the White House, his “impossible” election looks simple. Every action he takes is scrutinized and criticized by liberals, the media, and even some Republicans. They have joined forces to try and make it impossible for President Trump to actually accomplish anything. They have had a fair amount of success and many of Trump’s actions are taking longer than they should to complete. While the world is focusing on the Commander-in-Chief, waiting to see how they...

    Want to talk to President Donald Trump? Just walk right into his Oval Office. That's a privilege Politico has found many of Trump's advisers have under a Trump administration and it's pretty unusual. For example, the 'Apprentice' reality star turned adviser, Omarosa Manigault, doesn't need to set an appointment to see her boss. Neither does chief strategist Steve Bannon, senior policy adviser Stephen Miller, chief of staff Reince Priebus, son-in-law Jared Kushner or counselor Kellyanne Conway. That kind of accessibility to the president is a sharp break from the past administration. Former President Obama required aides and senior officials to...

Four years ago, on this day, the Catholic Church was struck by the unexpected announcement of Pope Benedict XVI. Surprising, as he was the first head of the Church in history to step down from his office because of old age and weakness. In 2017, Pope Francis was the main figure of the largest Italian Carnival parade - in a very special way.

Whether it is another Cold War like the one that lasted from 1945 to 1991 and can be theoretically considered to be World War III, or a series of running skirmishes will be determined in the coming year. WWIV will not be a battle between nation states, such as WWI, WWII and the Cold War, but a war involving various factions within the nation states themselves in North America and Western Europe. It will be a world war between those who believe in nationalism, populism and freedom...

    Recent weeks have seen a flood of media reports on Republicans facing angry constituents at town-hall meetings, so it’s nice to see the Associated Press point out that many Democrats have been dodging town halls altogether. Specifically, AP’s Steve Peoples notes that Senate Democrats up for re-election in states that President Trump carried on Election Day just don’t want to show up. Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.), for one, sent a staff member rather than attend a Kansas City town hall last weekend. She will chat with voters this week via Facebook Live — a much more controlled environment, where angry...

    Voices of protest rose high once again when dusk fell Monday in downtown Minneapolis. The group of 150 to 200 people snarled rush-hour traffic in some spots but stayed peaceful — both protesters and police, who were leading and following the group. Several causes were represented: rallying for a $15 minimum wage, denouncing President Donald Trump and his immigration policies, supporting Black Lives Matter and denouncing law enforcement actions at the pipeline protests in North Dakota. At the group's final stop outside Hennepin County jail, demonstrators hurled insults at the Sheriff's Department and the city of Minneapolis. Protesters said they...

The list, which was released Monday, enumerates 12 bacterial threats, grouping them into three categories: critical, high, and medium. “Antibiotic resistance is growing and we are running out of treatment options. If we leave it to market forces alone, the new antibiotics we most urgently need are not going to be developed in time,” said Dr. Marie-Paule Kieny, the WHO’s assistant director-general for health systems and innovation. “The pipeline...

    Pastors, we are not just cheerleaders, we are game changers. We are called to stir and to convict so that change takes place. Granted, there are many wonderful pastors and churches—I appreciate their ministry, but, as a whole, the church has drifted off course. They have lost the compass of truth – many are more concerned about wine tasting and craft beers than truly seeking the heart of God. The pulpit regulates the spiritual condition of God’s people which affects the nation. A lukewarm, sex-saturated culture (and church) simply reflects the lack of conviction in the pulpit as well as...

But getting an in-your-face proclamation of my mortality was a bit more than I had bargained for. I was still relatively new to the Church at the time, so I could have only heard these...

Protestors will stand in the path of construction, just at activists have, in the past, chained themselves to trees in the Northwest to stop logging. At night, other operatives will target the Wall for destructive sorties. Those may occasionally include the use of...

A debate normally requires at least some differences of opinion or conflicting views on the subject under discussion. But during his 20-minute speech (available here), Paglia expressed unqualified admiration for longtime friend Pannella, one of Italy’s most radical proponents of the culture of death. What made...

In the modern era of presidential politics, no first daughter has come close to the power and influence that Ivanka seems to enjoy as part President Donald Trump’s inner circle. Officially, she has no specific role within the White House (though her husband Jared Kushner is a White House senior advisor). Unofficially, she has been one of her father’s closest advisors since the early days of his presidential campaign. Prior to President Trump’s inauguration,...
