Security personnel ascended on the stage to escort her off. Posobiec, who filmed the altercation, then started shouting at the audience calling them Nazis and “Goebbels.”

    Amid rising concerns of politically motivated violence on college campuses, one college professor wants to see Republicans executed and has declared so publicly. Professor John Griffin of the Art Institute of Washington posted on Facebook that House Republicans “should be lined up and shot” for passing the American Health Care Act to reform Obamacare. Anthony Gockowski of Campus Reform has the story: “They should be lined up and shot,” Professor John Griffin posted to his Facebook, according to a screenshot of the post obtained by Campus Reform, even clarifying that he wasn’t being hyperbolic, saying “that’s not hyperbole; blood is...

    AUSTIN, Texas — A female minister in Texas who identifies as male recently declared at the state capitol that “God is transgender” in expressing her opposition to a proposed bill that requires those using restrooms and locker rooms in government buildings and public schools to use the facility that corresponds with the gender on their birth certificate. Seth Wynn, who leads Agape Metropolitan Community Church in Fort Worth, began her speech refuting another pastor who had cited the Book of Genesis in expressing support for the legislation.

    The first meeting between U.S. President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping will reportedly take place in April in Florida. Observers have already begun to guess what issues will be put on the agenda at this two-day summit. North Korea, territorial disputes in the South China Sea, and trade imbalance between the world’s two biggest economies are all thorny issues to deal with at any time, let alone during the great uncertainty created by the Trump administration. It’s not easy to forget the strong criticism Trump had for China during his campaign. He accused China of manipulating its currency...

    Billionaire George Soros donated at least $10.5 million to Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign. But the two families are chummy beyond that and they don’t even try to hide it. Soros’ son Alexander posted a selfie of himself with Chelsea Clinton on his Instagram Story on Tuesday. The photo was taken at the Gordon Parks Foundation June 6 gala, which, according to the website, honored specific “individuals who have enriched our lives.” The younger Soros was one of the honorees. He captioned the selfie with Chelsea and her husband, Marc Mezvinsky, as a #familyphoto, and thanked them for “enduring the...

    This “march toward justice” is a march toward insanity, a march toward devastation. The efforts to erase history, remove monuments, change names and mascots must stop immediately. If not, our country will disintegrate before our very eyes In our toxic age of political correctness, nothing is immune from liberal political attacks, even the beautiful, majestic and endangered tigers. It seems obvious that tigers should be supported since their numbers are dwindling the in the wild and their natural habitats are constantly shrinking. Most people probably think it is innocent for Louisiana State University (LSU) to feature tigers as their mascot...

    Meet Dr Matt Barrett - the rock behind Leo Varadkar as he strives to become leader of Fine Gael. Although the pair have been an item for the last 18 months, they have so far shunned the spotlight - although that could change should Mr Varadkar become Taoiseach. The couple have holidayed together, met each other's families and even shared a joint birthday bash. As chaos continues within the Government about Enda Kenny's resignation as Taoiseach, attention has turned to Mr Varadkar as a future leader. As tensions rise, Mr Vardkar is seen to have a strong partner by his...

    A Florida man killed his fellow neo-Nazi roommates after he converted to Islam and they did not respect his new faith, police said.

Jeremy Himmelman, 22, and Andrew Oneschuk, 18, were discovered dead of gunshot wounds to the upper body and head, police said. Arthurs said that he and the pair had “shared a common neo-Nazi belief,” but that he recently converted...

    Washington (CNN)Attorney General Jeff Sessions did not disclose meetings he had last year with Russian officials when he applied for his security clearance, the Justice Department told CNN Wednesday. Sessions, who met with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak at least two times last year, didn't note those interactions on the form, which requires him to list "any contact" he or his family had with a "foreign government" or its "representatives" over the past seven years, officials said. Sessions initially listed a year's worth of meetings with foreign officials on the security clearance form, according to Justice Department spokeswoman Sarah Isgur Flores....

    Ever since his forced resignation in disgrace, Dan Rather has continued on a downward spiral. His career, such as it is, has been kept alive by appearances on the Rachel Maddow show on MSNBC, where he takes potshots at his former employer and President Donald Trump.

The former anchorman of the CBS Evening News has been accused by a website devoted to exposing military corruption of falsely claiming to have been a member of the U.S. Marine Corps.The editor-in-chief of the website, retired U.S. Army Major Glenn MacDonald,...

    Marge Swanson, a fat acceptance activist who helped pioneer the concept of thin privilege, is dead from a heart attack. She was 34 years old. Swanson championed the notion that weight and health have no inherent connection. She enjoyed dying her hair bright colors, wearing glasses and dating African American men. “It’s not that I’m thin-phobic,” she once told an audience on a college campus. “It’s just that curvy women have been enslaved and victimized by capitalists for far too long and yeah, I’m upset.” Swanson was born the middle of five children to a working class family in rural...

    Outgoing Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) said he is confident that he has laid the groundwork for Democrats to nuke the filibuster for Supreme Court nominees if they win back the Senate in November. Envisioning Hillary Clinton in the White House and Democrats controlling the Senate, Reid warned that if a Senate Republican minority block her Supreme Court nominee, he is confident the party won't hesitate to change the filibuster rules again. Such a move would be an extension of what Reid did in 2013 when he was still majority leader, eliminating filibusters (with a simple majority vote) on...

    OK, that’s a lame post title; maybe I’ll come up with something wittier later.But Caterpillar just announced that it is moving 300 top executives and support staff from Peoria to the Chicago area.  The local Journal Star reports that Caterpillar’s explanation is that this puts them closer to transportation networks: “What we’re really after here in terms of the location is access to flights and the ability to get to markets more quickly,” [CEO Jim] Umpleby said. “One of the reasons we chose Chicago is it allows us that easier global access but it also is close to where we’re...

    A man accused of making at least eight threats against Jewish community centers, Jewish schools, a Jewish museum and the Anti-Defamation League was arrested by the FBI in St. Louis, Missouri, this morning, though the man is not believed to be the main suspect behind this year's rash of bomb threats, two law enforcement officials told ABC News. Juan Thompson, 31, is accused of what federal prosecutors called a “campaign to harass and intimidate.” He’s charged in New York with cyberstalking a New York City woman by communicating threats in the woman’s name. Prosecutors said Thompson, a former journalist, appears...
