    An engineering student who was an LGBTQ activist was shot and killed by Georgia Tech campus police on Saturday night, officials said Sunday. The school identified the victim as Scout Schultz, 21, a fourth-year engineering student from Lilburn, Georgia, who police said was armed with a knife. Schultz, president of Georgia Tech's Pride Alliance, identified as non-binary and intersex and preferred to be referred to with they/them gender pronouns, according to the alliance's website. At a news conference Monday, Schultz's family's attorney said the student was experiencing a "mental breakdown" on the night of the shooting.

    The left has upped the stakes in its guerilla operations against Republicans, as deep-pocketed groups fund protesters to show up to the offices and even houses of congressmen to protest their lack of "town hall" meetings. ------- Local chapters of a left-wing group called “Indivisible” helped organize and lead those two protests. ------- ...in which left-wing groups throw their first punch by rounding up activists and training them to be as disruptive as possible during representatives’ town halls. ------- when lawmakers stop holding those events, the groups throw their second punch by protesting at their homes. ------- While local chapters...

    Accuracy in Academia ^ | August 15, 2017 | Malcolm A. Kline
    The Higher Education Establishment insists that its mission is just that. Academic insiders know better. "Activism in this broad sense rules the day in contemporary higher education," Zena Hitz, a tutor at St. John’s College in Annapolis, writes in the summer 2017 issue of Modern Age. "The core purpose of the University of Texas, according to its mission statement, is 'to transform lives for the benefit of society.'" "Education is for the sake of 'social transformation,' says Harvard College--or 'the improvement of the world today,' according to Yale University." Yet and still, conservatives ready to high five each other and...

    7 back stabbing RINOs crossed the Red Line on Obamacare by voting no on repeal. Some of them have their reelection as far away as nearly 6 years. In order to REMEMBER in November the RAT FINKs who STINK I’ve created a memory aid. Use it often among friends and family so it can go viral. If you can think of something better I’d be happy to take any suggestions. The goal is to make these RAT FINKS into red hot radioactive waste nobody wants to touch come election day. Remember RAT FINK is the mnemonic !Routinely SNAFU Sue CollinsAlways...

    Friday, I had a great interview with Greg Pruett, the founder and President of the Idaho Second Amendment Alliance. The ISAA has been successful in getting anti-gun legislators voted out of office, getting city and county gun bans overturned (Idaho has a state pre-emption law, but when did a pesky little thing like the law ever stop penny-ante tyrants?), and in making Idaho the ninth state in the nation to pass a Constitutional carry law. Really, if you don’t know what Constitutional carry is, Google it. Better yet, get a copy of the Constitution and read it.

    Trump needs our help. To be effective we must have a game plan. The MAGA-TRAIN Game Plan: 1) Call your DEM/GOP senator and congressman each week, every week until further notice. The call only counts if you speak to someone, otherwise keep at it. 2) No script, just express your opinion. 3) Ask friends/family to commit to do the same and pass it on. Reasoning: 1) Arguing with the brainwashed left changes nothing. 2) Arguing with the RNC is not as effective. 3) If everyone makes these calls each week every week, we can put pressure on the Uniparty. I...

    If you’re feeling angry about the issues of the day–from Trump’s immigration ban to moves to skirt internet privacy–here’s a new, more productive way to vent: Get paid to set up an activist group. The nonprofit Fight for the Future, which works on keeping the internet free and open, recently announced a campaign to start “A-Teams” (Activism Teams). It’s prepared to offer $15,000 for a month’s startup capital. And it’s enlisting non-traditional types, including journalists, lawyers, advertisers, therapists, nurses, and designers. “There are incubators and accelerators that every year fund companies that change the world. We want to do something...

    Turning Point USA ^ | 3/24/17 | JR
    I was driving into work this morning and heard an ad for this site (http://tpusa.com) on the news talk radio station I listen to. Apparently some Lib professors were on their list and they were complaining about it. Amoung other things, their stated mission is to: "Launch, organize, and support student groups that exist to educate students about the benefits of limited government, capitalism, and freedom." Sounds great to me. No doubt some of you have heard of it, so what's you're opinion?

    The Daily Signal ^ | 3/16/17 | Brandon Muir
    We hear it all the time from politicians: They are finally going to stop the “waste, fraud, and abuse” in government. In states with more corruption, like Pennsylvania, New York, or Illinois, calls to clean up government are frequent as well. The problem is that these promises rarely come to fruition. This week—Sunshine Week—is a perfect time to stop waiting for someone else to fix these problems. Let’s look to citizens, and a push for more open government, to get the job done. As the saying goes, sunlight is the best disinfectant of all.

    Southern rock band Blackberry Smoke is sticking to what they know. "I don't think that our fans want to hear about our politics," lead singer Charlie Starr told Fox News. "We're not what you would call a politically-charged band." The Georgia native said their job as musicians is to offer their fans an escape from the often-harsh world, not share their politics.

    Q: What is the goal of A Day Without a Woman? A: The goal is to highlight the economic power and significance that women have in the US and global economies, while calling attention to the economic injustices women and gender nonconforming people continue to face. We play an indispensable role in the daily functions of life in all of society, through paid & unpaid, seen & unseen labor. We must have the power to control our bodies and be free from gender norms, expectations and stereotypes. We must free ourselves and our society from the constant awarding of power,...

    In case you were not aware of it, the 4th circuit court ruled that the 2nd amendment does not apply to military appearing weapons. Now, this is a curious ruling in that [1] it applies constitutional standards that are not present (the appearance of a firearm), [2] a ruling of 10-4 in favor of this (heavily stacked by liberal progressive -socialists), [3] affects the 2nd amendment, [4] which the liberals say does not apply to individuals but to militias. What is not reported in the media (aside from just about everything regarding this) is that the 2nd amendment applies to...

    Young America Foundation and the UCSB Republicans sponsored a lecture by author Ben Shapiro this evening. They overcame objections by the UCSB Black Students Union who attempted to cancel the lecture. Shapiro was well received by an overflow audience of over 700 students and community members with a modest line out the door. He spoke on a number of topics, emphasizing American greatness and opportunity. Seven police officers were seen outside the auditorium in case of protests. Shapiro last spoke at UCSB in 2013, has been banned from speaking engagements at other universities and was escorted off the CSU Los...

  • Comedian Eddie Griffin Calls For Trump’s Assassination: “Ya’ll Need To Take Him Out”…

    Comedian Eddie Griffin encouraged audience members to assassinate President Trump during a standup comedy routine in Dallas, Texas on Friday, but Facebook doesn’t want you to know that. Ben Ferguson, a radio show host who attended the show at the American Airlines Center, told The Federalist that Griffin made references to late President John F. Kennedy’s assassination, saying: “Ya’ll took out one president, you need to take out another.” “Ya’ll need to put Trump into a convertible and take him out, or better yet, the driver should take him out,” he continued.

    When former President Barack Obama said he was “heartened” by anti-Trump protests, he was sending a message of approval to his troops. Troops? Yes, Obama has an army of agitators — numbering more than 30,000 — who will fight his Republican successor at every turn of his historic presidency. And Obama will command them from a bunker less than two miles from the White House.
