  • Why the last few days at Mizzou have college administrators everywhere scared

    The Kansas City Star ^ | November 9, 2015 | Sam Mellinger
    * Football players boycotted, and essentially forced the tumbling of Mizzou’s power structure * All across the country, college administrators are taking notice and some are scared * The power dynamics in a billion dollar industry are changing COLUMBIA — The intention, presumably, was to show strength and solidarity. On the surface, Missouri's two most powerful athletics officials did that in a press conference here on Monday. Gary Pinkel, the football coach, talked of supporting his players. Mack Rhoades, the athletics director, talked of using an extraordinary last few days to improve life on campus. But underneath all of...

    And you thought Sidney Blumenthal was shady. Few people have heard of Cody Shearer, the unsanctioned diplomat, private eye, and Clinton flunky whose name surfaced in connection with the so-called intelligence reports Sidney Blumenthal was channeling to Hillary Clinton during her time at the State Department. But this shadowy fixture of the Clinton machine was everywhere in the 1990s including war-torn Bosnia, where he became the subject of a State Department investigation after he represented himself as an agent of the U.S. government and took cash from a genocidal warlord. Now evidence suggests Shearer, working with his partner Blumenthal,...

    The Huffington Post (Germany) is posting peoples names and photos who comment on social media opposing the migrant invasion. If you post a comment on their site or Facebook or any social media, you will be named. The Huffington Post is a global news organization. This is putting a target on anyones head that refuses to go along with the leftist/Islamic war on freedom. These are the lengths the left will go to impose the sharia (Islamic law) on the unwilling. I have long said the media is the enemy. Its why I refer to them as the enemedia. They...

    The Secret Service leaked sensitive personal information to the press about Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz as the Utah Republican was investigating the beleaguered agency, an inspector general's report said Wednesday. The Department of Homeland Security Office of the Inspector General issued a report on Wednesday that accused Secret Service Assistant Director Edward Lowery and other agency officials of plotting to leak information about Chaffetz, including his unsuccessful attempt to join the organization. The leaks were a highly unusual breach of decorum. Lawmakers often battle with agencies, but the fights mostly stay above board and focus on...

    The White House official whom Bob Woodward charged had crosssed a line by saying he would "regret" printing his version of a set of Washington negotiations was Gene Sperling, the director of the White House Economic Council, a source familiar with the exchange told BuzzFeed Wednesday. The email from Sperling to Woodward, which Woodward read to Politico Wednesday, has transfixed Washington, with Republicans and some in the press charging that it embodies a White House lording it over a cowed press corps. Woodward, Politico reported, called the top official identified to BuzzFeed as Sperling to tell him that...

    Washington Examiner ^ | 3-12-15 | T. Becket Adams
    Politico scored a journalistic coup with its exclusive 2014 profile on Lois Lerner, the former IRS official at the center of the agency's targeting of conservative groups. But a former Illinois lawmaker who said Politico contacted him repeatedly that year with questions regarding claims he was targeted by Lerner in the mid-1990s has been left wondering why the news group chose to ignore his documented dealings with the former federal official. "I was shocked," Al Salvi told the Washington Examiner's media desk, describing what he characterizes as several "lengthy" interviews with Politico reporter Rachael Bade. Lerner went after his 1996...

Some of those experiences began leaking out a few months ago, courtesy of David French and his mainly unnamed victims of the Government Accountability Boards jeremiad against Scott Walker supporters. The court decision offers a few more description of the nighttime and dawn raids on homes and the prosecutors abuse of the rights of those targets, but now with the case at an end, the victims...

Is it impossible to believe that Obama and his socialist cabal that learned from Saul Alinsky that the ends justify the means would hold something over a Supreme Court justices head? Its time to ask the question loudly and boldly because something is clearly wrong in Washington, D.C. Is that the purpose of government agencies like the IRS and the NSA that are abusing our rights to listen to us, to...

In a new Brian Williams story at the Daily Beast, a prominent black broadcast journalist who knows Holt told them: If Brian does not come back and Lester does not get the job, its going to get ugly. You can only imagine. It would seem odd for them to exile Williams and then turn to Savannah Guthrie or someone else other than Holt,...

    The young couple wanted really special invitations made up for their wedding, something that looked like a train ticket to fit with the railroad theme of their big day. So bride-to-be Paige Beckwith turned to a Suwanee printer whod been recommended to her. But the printer rejected the job because of his religious beliefs, the parent company of the printing business said Monday. Beckwith is gay. *** However, a company spokesman at AlphaGraphics confirmed Beckwiths story. The company also released a statement: We do not condone discrimination of any kind, and wish to make clear that customers of any race,...

A northern Indiana pizza shop that came under fire after its owners said their religious beliefs wouldn't allow them to cater a gay wedding is closed indefinitely, and its operators say they've gone into hiding. Memories Pizza in Walkerton faced criticism this week after co-owner Crystal O'Connor expressed support for a new Indiana religious objections law.

Cheap and easily bought, machetes in America have commonly been reserved for underbrush and sugar-cane cutting. But now, in a spreading trend that so far has drawn little national attention, criminals are using machetes as weapons, striking fear in cities and towns across the country. Witness these recent incidents: In the heartland Indiana city of Evansville in February, a robber pulled a machete on a convenience-store cashier, who put...

    --snip-- A plan to honor a Harlem cop killed by Nation of Islam radicals is drowning under a flood of racial tensions created more than four decades ago, but no one wants to throw it a lifeline not even the NYPDs new top cop. Police Commissioner Bill Bratton is distancing himself from the controversial push to get the street in front of the 28th Precinct renamed in honor of Officer Phillip Cardillo, who was shot and killed inside a mosque run by Louis Farrakhan in 1972 noting that the community should make the final decision.

    Recently departed CBS News reporter Sharyl Attkisson appeared with Howard Kurtz on Fox's Media Buzz on Sunday. Kurtz said her forthcoming book is titled Stonewalled: My Fight for Truth Against the Forces of Obstruction, Intimidation, and Harassment in Obamas Washington. Kurtz asked her to define those forces. "I think any journalist who has been covering Washington for a few years would agree that there is pressure coming to bear on journalists for just doing their job in ways that have never come to bear before."

    The Christian organization Focus on the Family is releasing a movie in theaters May 6 called Irreplaceable about the value of traditional families, the importance of fathers being engaged in their childrens lives and the healing power of forgiveness. But apparently to some advocates for the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender, or LGBT, community, thats a cardinal sin. LGBT advocates have launched an effort to disparage the movie online, petition against it and work to make sure Irreplaceable isnt seen in your local theater. Focus President Jim Daly reports in a blog post that some of the more than 700...

    Lawrence Roehrig, international vice president of AFSCME and secretary treasurer of Michigan AFSCME Council 25, defended the unions decision to publish the names of hospital workers who opted out of the union. Social pressure is one of the time-honored ways the union has used to encourage people to accept their responsibility to join, Roehrig said. If a non-joiner can keep his apostasy secret he will be able to shirk his responsibility without consequence. If he knows he will be unmasked he will be more inclined to do the right thing. Roehrig maintained that the people opting out are doing so...

    Whether Democrat or Republican, do you really want your private tax information leaked with impunity? On March 9, 2010, around 10 a.m., I announced my plans to run for senate representing Delaware. Later that same day, my office received a call from a reporter asking about my taxes. Its since come out, after a halting and unenthusiastic investigation, that a Delaware Department of Revenue employee named David Smith accessed my records that day at approximately 2 p.m. out of curiosity, he says. That these records ended up in the hands of the press is just a coincidence, the IRS...

    The Federal Communications Commission plan to send researchers into newsrooms in order to observe how stories are selected and reported has sparked fears of government intimidation and censorship. Jay Sekulow, chief counsel of the American Center for Law and Justice, said the mere presence of agents of the government may exert a subtle pressure to slant reporting in a way that deters critical coverage of Administration policies. Ajit Pai, one of the FCC's Commissioners, voiced his concern that this claimed 'information gathering effort' to ascertain the 'philosophy' behind how those in the news media do their jobs could stifle dissent....

    Bristling from what he characterized as disrespectful and abusive treatment he received during an interview, President Obama vowed never to appear on Fox News again. After I agreed to sacrifice some of my precious time in order to grant Mr. OReilly an interview prior to the Super Bowl I was greeted with insistent and intrusive questioning on topics I didnt want to talk about, Obama complained. Worse, my veracity was impugned. Rather than just accept my word, Mr. Reilly seemed determined to demand some sort of independent verification, some sort of external evidence. I am not accustomed to being treated...
