  • Law professor who wore Black Lives Matter shirt to class has a long trail of student grievances

    The College Fix ^ | 7/22/2016 | Samantha Figueroa
    When a law professor wore a Black Lives Matter shirt to class earlier this year, she saw it as a teaching tool and exercise in academic freedom. Some of her “concerned students” saw the gesture as an attempt to push her “personal beliefs” on them, but also a threat to their ability to become practicing lawyers – and told her so in a much-derided memo. The incident was revived this month after Inside Higher Ed confirmed the institution was southern California’s Whittier Law School, whose student body is majority-minority, and the professor was Patricia Leary. Though Leary’s public critique of...

    It seems almost ghoulish to look for a silver lining in the dark cloud that blanketed the nation last week. But I think there was one. The killings by police in Minnesota and Louisiana, quickly followed by the killings of police in Dallas, knocked the lazy certainty out of almost everybody. At least for a moment, antagonists on either side of polarizing issues could see beyond the epistemic horizon of their most comfortable talking points. Black Lives Matter activists thanked the police for their protection and sacrifice. Conservative Republicans, most notably House Speaker Paul Ryan and former Speaker Newt Gingrich,...

Check out the bomb they’ve just dropped on Black Lives Matter and all of the armchair pundits.

    The Guardian ^ | Tuesday 8 March 2016 04.12 GMT | Thomas Frank
    Let us now address the greatest American mystery at the moment: what motivates the supporters of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump? I call it a “mystery” because the working-class white people who make up the bulk of Trump’s fan base show up in amazing numbers for the candidate, filling stadiums and airport hangars, but their views, by and large, do not appear in our prestige newspapers. On their opinion pages, these publications take care to represent demographic categories of nearly every kind, but “blue-collar” is one they persistently overlook. The views of working-class people are so foreign to that universe...

    Did Donald Trump violate IRS rules, by using a charity's money to buy himself a signed football helmet? Four years ago, at a charity fundraiser in Palm Beach, Donald Trump got into a bidding war at the evening's live auction. The items up for sale: A Denver Broncos helmet, autographed by then-star quarterback Tim Tebow, and a Tebow jersey. Trump won, eventually, with a bid of $12,000. Afterward, he posed with the helmet. His purchase made gossip-column news: a flourish of generosity, by a mogul with money to burn. "The Donald giveth, and The Donald payeth," wrote the Palm Beach...

    HONOLULU – Gov. David Ige signed SB 2954 (ACT 108) which authorizes county police departments in Hawai‘i to enroll firearms applicants and individuals registering their firearms, in a criminal record monitoring service. The system, also known as the “Rap Back” system, is a service of the Federal Bureau of Investigation that provides continuous criminal record monitoring for authorized government agencies such as law enforcement agencies. The service notifies the agencies when a firearm owner is arrested for a criminal offense anywhere in the country. This will allow county police departments in Hawai‘i to evaluate whether the firearm owner may continue...

    Vox ^ | June 24, 2016 | Andrew Prokop
    In the wake of the UK’s vote Thursday to leave the EU, comparisons of Brexit's  success to the rise of Donald Trump have been flying far and wide. This is only natural, since anti-immigrant, anti-elite, and nationalist sentiments played major roles in both shocking phenomena. Of course, many of these analogies are too facile. The US faces no comparable controversy over regulations from a transnational economic bureaucracy. The US electorate is much more diverse than Britain’s. Trump himself has massive weaknesses in personality, popularity, and campaign mechanics that an issue-oriented campaign doesn’t. And where "Leave" and "Remain" were essentially...

    Until recently the progressive mind has been resolutely closed and stubbornly frozen in place against all things Trump. But cracks are appearing in the ice. With increasing frequency over the last few months, some of the most thoughtful left and progressive figures have begun to speak favorably of aspects of Trump’s foreign policy. Let us hear from these heretics, among them William Greider, Glen Ford, John Pilger, Jean Bricmont, Stephen F. Cohen and William Blum. Their words are not to be construed as “endorsements,” but rather an acknowledgment of Trump’s anti-interventionist views, the impact those views are having and the...

    It happens like clock work: as soon as there’s a mere whisper of a terrorist attack or a mass shooting, the usual suspects kick in to high gear. Their destination is always the same: a faraway land where a so-called assault weapons ban magically eliminates not only guns but also prevents guns from walking of their own volition, without need of human agency, into crowded places and killing people. The reaction after the terrorist attack in Orlando, in which a radical Islamist who pledged allegiance to ISIS murdered at least 49 people in a packed night club, was as predictable...

On June 6th, 1944, American forces stormed the beaches of Western Europe in the bravest and largest amphibious attack in history. A battle that turned the tide against Nazi Germany and changed the course of World War II hasn’t earned itself a Google homepage doodle, however. Interestingly enough, you may remember Google’s homepage from May 19th where they honored Yuri Kochiyama, a social activist who openly praised Osama bin Laden, Malcolm X, and Fidel Castro for their work.

    In his book The Snapping of the American Mind, David Kupelian asks the following painful question that millions of Americans like myself have pondered for years and will ponder for some time to come as America slowly rips itself apart. Kupelian writes, “How could it be that hundreds of thousands of Americans fought and bled – and many died – on foreign shores to contain an evil and metas-tasizing ideology variously called communism, Marxism, socialism, collectivism, or statism, and yet now, just a few years later, we would gaze up at the pinnacle of power in our own country and...

    POLITICS: Liberal women seen as weak on terrorism issues, study finds A new study from UC Riverside suggests that Hillary Clinton may have two big obstacles working against her going into the 2016 election: she's a woman and she's a liberal. Those two traits combined make voters think twice about supporting her when terrorism is in the news, according to a news release from UCR about the study. The study cites researchers from UCR, Tulane University and Vanderbilt University who have learned female democratic presidential hopefuls are viewed by voters as weaker and less capable than their male and republican...

    House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) on Monday suggested that the Republican presidential race is now down to Donald Trump and Marco Rubio, leaving out Ted Cruz. I see it more as Trump-Rubio," McCarthy said during an interview on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" as the hosts discussed pundits who ruled out candidates like Ohio Gov. John Kasich. "Cruz's whole strategy of winning - he wasn't planning on Trump - and when you look going through the evangelical vote and others, he just lost that," McCarthy added. Trump picked up nearly a third of the vote in South Carolina on Saturday while...

    Donald Trump's visit to the Iowa State Fair was a spectacle... Rob Stutzman...witnessed the scene and experienced flashbacks to the hordes his client, actor Arnold Schwarzenegger, encountered during his unlikely bid for California governor during the 2003 recall election. "It's celebrity appeal," Stutzman said. "Both of them are very skilled at using their celebrity to attract public and media attention," They are wealthy celebrities, so universally branded that they are known by their first names. Schwarzenegger and Trump have a flair for theatrics that play well on the evening news. Some examples: Schwarzenegger dropped a 3,600-pound wrecking ball on an...

    Donald Trump had a town hall last night with MSNBC. Joe Scarborough, Mika Brzezinski and the audience were asking Donald Trump questions. At one point, Mika Brzezinski started to describe a candidate to Donald Trump, going through a host of viewpoints and descriptions. She then asked Trump who she was describing. Watch this :36 The look on Trump's face is absolutely priceless. One would think, this might be something that gives pause to Republicans considering voting for Trump. He and Bernie freaking Sanders are apparently so alike, Sanders gets described and Trump thinks the person is talking about him. Seriously,...
