    New York University has hired Talia Lavin as an adjunct journalism professor less than a year after the former New Yorker fact checker resigned after falsely accusing an Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent of having a Nazi tattoo. Lavin’s undergraduate course “Reporting on the Far Right” will kick off in the fall semester of 2019 at NYU’s Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute. In its official faculty bio, the university billed Lavin as an expert in “far-right extremism and social justice.”

    Well, I am going to miss the full-bore SWAT-team raids at dawn against aging political factota like Roger Stone and Paul Manafort. It was really very courteous of CNN to have been parked outside the homes of those hapless victims so that television audiences all across the country could all be edified by these exhibitions of the coercive arm of state power in action. Mr Mueller could just have had one of his 17 Obama-and-Hillary supporting prosecutors ring up the latest mark and ask him to pop down to headquarters. But that would not have been as dramatic, as expensive,...

    The commandant of the Marines has warned the Pentagon that deployments to the southwest border and funding transfers under the president’s emergency declaration, among other unexpected demands, have posed “unacceptable risk to Marine Corps combat readiness and solvency.” In two internal memos, Marine Corps Gen. Robert Neller said the “unplanned/unbudgeted” deployment along the border that President Donald Trump ordered last fall, and shifts of other funds to support border security, had forced him to cancel or reduce planned military training in at least five countries, and delay urgent repairs at bases. The border deployment and funding transfers, as well as...

    England's Cambridge University has withdrawn a visiting fellowship offer from controversial Toronto University professor Jordan Peterson. Peterson requested a two-month fellowship at the university's Faculty of Divinity in October, but the school opted to rescind the opportunity following a review of his work, a spokesperson for Cambridge University said in a press release. In a blog post, Peterson said Cambridge did not directly notify him that the fellowship offer had been rescinded. The school's decision was "a serious error of judgment" and the Faculty of Divinity "continued [to] decline in relevance that they deserve," he said. Peterson rose to prominence...

    Georgia State Rep. Dar’Shun Kendrick (D) has introduced a House bill — HB 604 — that says this: “Any male 55 years of age or older shall immediately report to the county sheriff or local law enforcement agency when such male releases sperm from his testicles.” No, this is not an article from The Onion. The bizarre legislation came shortly before a state Senate panel approved another proposal (HB 481) to ban most abortions after six weeks of pregnancy, a bill known as the “heartbeat abortion ban.” “According to the House website, HB 604 was introduced by Reps. Park Cannon...

The new Fox Corp. has added former Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, and long-time Rupert Murdoch ally and Formula 1 chairman and CEO Chase Carey, to its board and adopted a temporary "poison pill" against hostile takeover attempts. The slimmed-down Fox, separated early Tuesday from the Fox entertainment assets that Walt Disney is expected to take over just after midnight Wednesday ET, also added to its board Anne Dias, founder of...

    NYU: Muslim students claim Chelsea Clinton responsible for New Zealand massacre because she criticized Ilhan Omar Call out Islamic antisemitism, and you’ll be responsible if some madman massacres Muslims halfway around the world. The endgame here, as always, is to stigmatize and demonize even the slightest, mildest critical word about Islam or about any Muslim individual or group. The result will be to make it absolutely impossible to call out Islamic antisemitism or to enunciate any opposition to jihad terror or Sharia oppression. These people are not intellectually consistent. They assume here that any criticism is tantamount to incitement to...

    The Murdoch-owned Fox News network has decided to shelve Judge Jeanine Pirro’s television show this week, after Pirro questioned Islam’s compatibility with the U.S. Constitution in a segment on Democrat congresswoman Ilhan Omar, an avowed anti-Semite. Variety reports: “Fox News Channel replaced tonight’s broadcast of Jeanine Pirro’s weekly program with a repeat episode of its documentary series “Scandalous,” just days after the 21st Century Fox-owned cable-news network said it condemned remarks the outspoken host made about Minnesota Democrat Ihan Omar.” Fox News did not choose to provide an explanation to Variety for their report. This should tell you everything you...

    Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s “pit bull” Andrew Weissmann is leaving the squad — a sure sign the “witch-hunt” is over — but there’s likely more to come. Weissmann has a pattern of wrecking lives with his prosecutorial terrorist tactics, then slinking away when someone catches on to his tactics and before the reversals start rolling in. Now, President Trump has his first real attorney general who likely would not allow Weissmann’s abuses, and thanks to the good work of two lawyers — Margot Cleveland and “Techno_Fog” — a Houston court has finally unsealed old evidence proving Weissmann’s egregious threats against...

    Australian Senator Fraser Anning responded to having an egg cracked against the back of his head by turning around and slapping the perpetrator during a live television interview. The Queensland senator, who previously called for a ban on Muslim immigration and is currently under fire for blaming New Zealand’s lax immigration policies for recent mosque shootings, was in Melbourne giving an interview to reporters on Friday when a young man started recording, then smashed an egg into the back of his head. Anning quickly turned around and slapped the individual, who reportedly turned out to be a 17-year-old. Then he...

    The Justice Department "negotiated" an agreement with Hillary Clinton's legal team that ensured the FBI did not have access to emails on her private servers relating to the Clinton Foundation, former FBI special agent Peter Strzok testified during a closed-door appearance before the House Judiciary Committee last summer, according to a newly released transcript. Republicans late last year renewed their efforts to probe the Clinton Foundation, after tax documents showed a plunge in its incoming donations after Clinton’s 2016 presidential election. The numbers fueled longstanding allegations of possible “pay-to-play” transactions at the organization, amid a Justice Department probe covering foundation...

This one is aimed at CNN and it’s even bigger than the one previously filed against the Washington Post.
