    Corey Menafee says he destroyed the window inside Calhoun College in New Haven, Connecticut, last month because he found it offensive. The name of the residential college has sparked protests because it honors former Vice President John C. Calhoun, an 1804 Yale graduate and an ardent defender of slavery. Menafee apologized for breaking the window. Yale said it was willing to let him return to work next week.

    CNBC ^ | 4-5-16 | Matt Belvedere
    GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump is the American equivalent of North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, said Arianna Huffington, co-founder and editor-in-chief of The Huffington Post. "[Trump] is both a buffoon and dangerous," Huffington told CNBC's "Squawk Box" on Tuesday — citing, in part, as her reasons Trump's proposal to temporarily ban Muslims from entering the country and what she calls "inciting violence at his rallies." The Huffington Post first covered Trump's campaign as entertainment, Huffington said. "[But] the day he proposed to ban 1.6 billion Muslims from the United States, we started covering him as a clear and present...

    Glenn Beck has been one of Ted Cruz’s most high profile surrogates—but Beck’s support could become a little less desirable when he heads to court this summer for allegedly defaming a victim of the Boston Marathon bombing…… One of Ted Cruz’s most prominent supporters could be headed to court soon to defend his Islamophobic falsehoods about a victim of terrorism. “…But come this summer, it’s Beck who could face judgement. The radio talker currently faces a defamation lawsuit—because he doubled and tripled down on charges that a victim of a terrorist attack was actually the real terrorist. “… previously unnoticed...

    Attention all Druids! There will be a bingo game after the Wednesday night Oak Worship Service. The Religion Page of the Huffington Post should relocated to the Entertainment Page or, more accurately, the Comedy Page. Their bizzaro efforts to frequently use religion in all its forms to promote a plethora of leftwing agendas often yields highly comedic results. Remember Green Jesus? And now their Associate Religion Editor, Antonia Blumberg, has employed fictional liberal paganism to promote a leftwing fantasy world.

    ... the Bundy militia members occupying a federal wildlife preserve in Burns, Oregon are motivated by the very same mix of resentments and hobby horses that are driving the Donald Trump movement. Both Trump's supporters and the Bundy agitators are moved by an unsubtly racialized sense of entitlement, a belief that federal benefits and giveaways are great when going to conservative white people but illegitimate if they go to anyone else, especially people of color. As David Roberts at Vox recently pointed out, Trump supporters aren't motivated by some ideological opposition to the concept of government benefits. They are perfectly...

    Ted Cruz is doing his best to avoid Donald Trump's birtherstyle attacks, but it's not easy when you're on a bus tour with a pack of reporters questioning you about it every chance they get. And when another rival candidate echoes the questions about whether Cruz is really eligible to be president, given his Canadian birth. And when a nemesis of yours in the Senate lends credence to the question, too. So far, Cruz has dismissed the growing miasma the same way he has done in the past. (Trump has also raised questions about Cruz's evangelical Christianity and claimed Cruz.)...

In another bombshell revelation, former Top Secret Intelligence Bulletins uncovered by journalist Wayne Madsen reveal that the CIA has been backing Muslim terrorists since the 1950s and even attempted to use them in a failed effort to undermine, overthrow, and conquer the former USSR.

Now we can look at the skeptics with skepticism who in...

    Well I guess someone wasn’t getting enough attention. In Iowa earlier today, Ted Cruz told ThinkProgress reporter Kira Lerner that Black Lives Matter, a decentralized movement calling for racial justice and an end to police brutality, is “literally suggesting and embracing and celebrating the murder of police officers.” As Lerner pointed out in the write-up of her interview with Cruz, the number of police officer deaths has been steadily declining, while police killings have remained high; for point of comparison, 51 police officers were killed last year in the line of duty, while police officers killed 1,107 people on the...

We have to take measures against an uncertain future which may well be something no one ever wants. We are talking about extinction. We...

    ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — A potentially endangered species of bat could become a major obstacle to the proposed Sandpiper oil pipeline in northern Minnesota. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is considering whether to declare the northern long-eared bat an endangered species because the spread of the white-nosed syndrome disease has reduced its population. In that case, Enbridge could be forced to postpone its pipeline project or chose a different route. The current proposal would carry crude from the North Dakota oilfields to Superior, Wisconsin and would run through the bats' habitat. Enbridge has already taken steps to avoid...

    Christians are already divided by so many things, yet we seem to insist on creating more divisions amongst ourselves. I think this is one division we should work to eliminate. Here are some reasons why. It divides otherwise healthy congregations. Many churches have been frightened by the mega-church message that says if you aren’t doing contemporary worship, your church will die. Of course, there are many examples that prove otherwise. And many churches with only contemporary services are closing, also. This doesn’t have to happen to a traditional church. But since nearly all mega-churches are decidedly contemporary, the message seems...

Warren took the stage in a crowded ballroom to calls of “Run, Liz, run” by activists waving “Elizabeth Warren for President” signs and did little to disappoint. Speaking before the nation’s largest gathering of liberal activists, she railed against giant corporations, secret trade deals and Republicans she said were too cozy with big business.

Of course they 'refused to talk to reporters', but the AP guy observed that 'their mood appeared black'. Obviously changing their money over to Ukrainian bills speaks volumes on who they expect to be in charge of the Donbas' largest industrial city (Donetsk) a week from now (seeing as how the Ukrainian Army chased them out of Sloviansk and two other SE cities over the weekend).  But who paid them...

    Howie thread for the week starting with his Sunday Boston Herald column "It's Meltdown Time in Moonbat Nation". btw George McGovern died and I think that may be the person that Howie _wouldn't_ allow in the death pool because it was getting obvious he was about to go (or maybe it was someone else?)

    one man's opinion...
    I admit it, I have mixed feelings about this. First, the news. "Roll Call" has just moved the FL-9 race into the "likely Dem" category, meaning that bloviating buffoon Alan Grayson will return to the House.

    Ex-prof gets life in prison for meeting rampage HUNTSVILLE, Ala. — A former university professor has been sentenced to life in prison without parole for killing three of her colleagues and wounding three others during a faculty meeting. The jury deliberated for about 20 minutes before convicting Amy Bishop on Monday. Amy Bishop, a former professor at the University of Alabama in Hunstville, showed no reaction as the verdict was read. Circuit Judge Alan Mann then imposed the life sentence. Bishop did not speak in court. The Harvard-educated biologist avoided a death sentence by pleading guilty earlier this month to...

    Rep. Pete Stark has coasted to election in his East Bay district ever since Richard Nixon beat George McGovern, the U.S. bombed Hanoi and France performed its last official execution by guillotine. Along the way, Stark became California's longest-serving House member and a liberal totem in the Bay Area delegation. He left a big footprint on Medicare, the health care program for the elderly. He earned a reputation as a policymaker ahead of his time on universal health care, the Iraq War and carbon taxes. He aided thousands of constituents in dealing with federal agencies and brought billions of dollars...

    What is it about leftists and their hate-hate affair with America? RadioOrNot.com host Nicole Sandler, formerly of the justifiably defunct Air America Radio, has upped the ante on libtalker Bill Press, who vented about his visceral loathing for the national anthem, and chirpy MSNBC weekend host Chris Hayes, who sniffed in disdain at the notion of fallen soldiers as "heroes." (Audio clip after page break).Libtalker: I HATE This G-D Country!Heck, Sandler hates the nation as a whole, not just its venerated secular hymn and most selfless warriors. Here is Sander filling in for liberal soulmate Randi Rhodes on Tuesday, the...

    Maurice Sendak Said Killing Bush Would Have Been 'Wonderful' Maurice Sendak may have been even wilder than his "wild things." In one of the children's book author's last interviews before he died of a stroke in May, Sendak said he thought about trying to assassinate former President George W. Bush and former Vice President Dick Cheney. "Bush was president, I thought, 'Be brave. Tie a bomb to your shirt. Insist on going to the White House. And I want to have a big hug with the vice president, definitely. And his wife, and the president, and his wife, and anybody...

    James Fallows, national correspondent for The Atlantic, usually presents an image of himself as a "reasonable" liberal. However yesterday he revealed his inner moonbat with an article title worthy of a thread name in the sanity challenged Democratic Underground: "5 Signs the United States is Undergoing a Coup." After a few hours of reflection, Fallows realized he allowed too much of his moonbat side to be displayed to the public so he altered the title with this explanation Midnight update: This item went up three hours ago with a more blunt-instrument headline than it should ever have had: "5 Signs...
