    “The Extent of Radicalization in the American Muslim Community and that Community’s Response” Committee on Homeland Security - US House of Representatives March 10, 2011 Thank you very much for allowing me to come here and tell the country what happened to my son. This hearing today is extremely important to begin the discussion about the issue of Islamic radicalization in America and my hope is that this Committee can somehow address this issue in a meaningful, productive way. First, I would like to express my deepest sympathy to the family of Private William Long, and to the wounded soldier,...

    Colleges have become left wing indoctrination centers and an increasing number of Americans see it. A recent survey found that an increasing number of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents see colleges as bad for the country. From the Pew Research Center: The Growing Partisan Divide in Views of Higher Education *** A new Pew Research Center survey finds that only half of American adults think colleges and universities are having a positive effect on the way things are going in the country these days. About four-in-ten (38%) say they are having a negative impact – up from 26% in 2012. The...

    America's 20 Best Conservative Colleges Ranking Guidelines:The 20 colleges and universities in this ranking are, in our view, the best schools in the United States that are friendly to conservative values. Some of the schools on this list are happy to be identified as conservative. Others might resist this designation, but nonetheless are places where conservative students can find a friendly home. Located all over the country, some of the schools in this ranking (for example, Biola University) are boldly Christian institutions whose religious focus strongly flavors the atmosphere on campus. Others (such as Hillsdale College) take a more...

    The Department of Education says Georgetown University and Texas A&M have ties to Qatar and the Chinese technology firm Huawei. It opened an investigation into both colleges, demanding to know what steps they took to ensure they weren’t taking funds linked to terrorism. Qatar’s neighbors say the oil-rich state funds terror and meddles in other countries’ governments. President Donald Trump is meeting with the country’s ruler Tuesday. President Donald Trump is scheduled to meet with Qatar’s ruler Tuesday as the U.S. Department of Education is investigating two American universities over their ties to the Middle Eastern nation and to determine...

    US President Donald Trump said he wanted more Chinese students to go to the United States as concern grows about Chinese scholars in American academia. “We want to have Chinese students [go] to our great schools and great universities. They are great students and tremendous assets,” Trump said on the sidelines of the Group of 20 summit in Osaka, Japan, on Saturday. Trump said “someone” had said it was harder for Chinese students to go to the US under his immigration policy. “If it were, that somebody viewed it that way, I don’t,” Trump said, adding that students from China...

    The Department of Education has launched an investigation into foreign cash secretly flowing into U.S. universities and sent letters to Georgetown University and Texas A&M Thursday. A Senate report found that 70 percent of colleges that took money from a Chinese propaganda program broke the law by not disclosing it. Almost all of the colleges contracted to shape U.S. textbooks on the Middle East received massive funding from countries in the region. The Department of Education is going after U.S universities over supposed ties to foreign governments, after some allegedly took huge quantities of foreign cash and hid it from...

    American colleges and universities may be liberal strongholds for the most part, but there are some outstanding institutions of higher learning that still cater to conservative values. Some are religious, some secular, but all of the schools on this list have demonstrated a commitment to conservatism, either through their original mission statements, their curriculums, volunteer and work opportunities, or on-campus activities available to students. To help young people find a top-notch education at an institution that resonates with their principles, Newsmax — with the help of, the Young America's Foundation, and other resources — has compiled a list of...

    Hatred of Israel, and its close cousin, hatred of Jews, have been commonly held and expressed sentiments on college campuses in the US, Canada, and Europe in recent years.  Anti-Israel speakers are invited to speak, paid handsome fees, and draw large audiences of enthusiastic students, faculty and administrators.  Anti-Zionist groups, often dominated by Arab or Muslim students, proliferate and ally with groups representing other minority groups in an effort to create an intersectionality of interests, where various minority groups all rally in support of any of the causes any of the individual identity groups support. Groups such as Students for Justice...

  • When Christian Colleges Teach Students to Fear, Not to Think

    Christians are called to be strong and courageous. But that’s not what Christian students are being taught on many Christian college campuses today. Too often, they’re taught to fear and to hide behind a false pretense of grace while extending none. Christian writer, speaker and author—Matt Walsh—was protested by college staff and students, at Baylor University, who didn’t want to hear a Biblical perspective on culture-shifting issues. How dare a Christian father speak Biblical truths about abortion, marriage and gender! That’s “hate speech." This is intolerable in a day and age when many define their own subjective truth which cannot, apparently,...
  • Today’s Schools Should Emulate The Education That Produced Abraham Lincoln

    The Federalist ^ | Mar 14, 2019 | Stephen Shipp
    Last month marked the 210th anniversary of Abraham Lincoln’s birth. To the professional educator, Lincoln is endlessly fascinating. His family followed the frontier, and his accomplishments came in spite of the limited time he spent in a schoolhouse, among them some of the finest examples of political rhetoric in the English language. So how did he do it, and what can we learn from his example? The present mantra in secondary education is “college and career readiness.” Lincoln invites an uncomfortable question: Had Lincoln attended a school on the vanguard of the college and career readiness movement, would it have...

    The perception that only elite schools produce elite leaders needs to die. The No. 1 company in last year’s Fortune 500 was Walmart Inc., with $500 billion in revenue. That would make its chief executive, Douglas McMillon, a pretty important and powerful executive, don’t you think? Can you guess where he went to college? The University of Arkansas. He has an MBA, too. From the University of Tulsa. Second on the list was Exxon Mobil Corp. Its CEO, Darren Woods, went to Texas A&M. Third was Berkshire Hathaway Inc., run by the man many consider the greatest investor who ever...

    Republicans and Democrats on Wednesday were calling for hearings about the massive college admissions scam uncovered this week that let dozens of wealthy parents, including actresses Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin, pay thousands and in some cases millions of dollars to get their kids into elite universities. “I am deeply concerned about this, and I’m worried about how widespread issues like this may be throughout the country," said Rep. Bradley Byrne, an Alabama Republican on the House Education and Labor Committee. "We must ensure that no one is denied an opportunity due to the illegal actions of rogue parents or...

    The Daily Signal ^ | November 21, 2019 | Walter E. Williams
    Much of today’s incivility and contempt for personal liberty has its roots on college campuses, and most of the uncivil and contemptuous are people with college backgrounds. Let’s look at a few highly publicized recent examples of incivility and attacks on free speech. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and his wife, Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao, were accosted and harassed by a deranged left-wing mob as they were leaving a dinner at Georgetown University. Sen. McConnell was harassed by protesters at Reagan National Airport, as well as at several venues in Kentucky. Sen. Ted Cruz and his wife were harassed at...
  • The new Title IX rules, while imperfect, are an improvement

    A draft of the new Title IX rules from the Department of Education was circulated a couple of months ago and they predictably had progressive groups setting their hair on fire. The final version has now been rolled out and, while there were some minor (but troubling) changes made, those same groups aren’t going to be any happier. The days of kangaroo courts hearing questions of criminal law at schools where cases of sexual assault or harassment are concerned won’t be ending entirely, but they will be decidedly more fair to all parties concerned. (Reason) This guidance will replace an...

    It’s the First Amendment that Rutgers University history professor James Livingston can thank for avoiding punishment for posting on Facebook his hatred for “white people.” He responded in anger when he found a restaurant in his Harlem neighborhood was too busy: “OK, officially, I now hate white people. I am a white people, for God’s sake, but can we keep them–us–us out of my neighborhood?” Livingston said the restaurant was “overrun with little Caucasian a——-.” “I hereby resign from my race.” His posts were noticed by news outlets, and members of the public complained to the university. Rutgers’ Office of...
