    This afternoon I logged on to my daughter's college account and found out grades had come out. I was very excited to see that she had received a 3.75 and was very happy for her. I showed her and the entire family and we went out to celebrate (dinner). I shared my happiness via Facebook. Tonight I went back on to pay a fee that I had noticed earlier was yet unpaid and her grades are completely different! She has one A, a B, two C's and a D! I don't have any clue how this is possible. One of...

    The University of Arizona is paying students to be social justice advocates and report on what they perceive to be ‘bias incidents’ and ‘socially insensitive behavior.’ According to The Washington Times, the students are being paid $10 per hour, for about 15 hours per week, to be social justice advocates. The students are focusing mainly on residence halls, and are also creating social justice posters to hang in the dorms and ‘partnering’ with other groups to hold social justice events on campus.

    Bill Clinton will deliver the commencement address at Hobart and William Smith Colleges next month, the schools announced Wednesday. Clinton, the 42nd president of the United States and founder of the Clinton Foundation, is scheduled to speak at the Geneva colleges on Sunday, May 14. “We are honored to welcome President Clinton back to Hobart and William Smith as the 2017 Commencement speaker,” HWS President Mark Gearan said in a release. “President Clinton’s leadership has transformed millions of lives around the world, from his time as Arkansas attorney general and then governor, to two terms in the White House, and...

    Betsy DeVos has done more for the black community than most “civil rights” leaders On Wednesday students at the largely black Bethune-Cookman University in Daytona Beach, Fla., interrupted a speech by U.S. Education Secretary Betsy DeVos. Some heckled her, while others turned their back. She was supposed to speak for an hour but left after 20 minutes. This is not the first time DeVos has received a rude reception. Back in February, left-wing protestors channeled their inner Orval Faubuses and prevented her from entering Jefferson Academy in Washington, D.C.

    In the competition for marquee commencement speakers, the University of California, San Diego thought it had scored a coup this year — a Nobel Peace Prize winner, best-selling author and spiritual North Star to millions of people. “We are honored to host His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama,” gushed Pradeep Khosla, the university’s chancellor, “and thankful that he will share messages of global compassion.” Within hours of Mr. Khosla’s announcement, though, the university was blindsided by nasty remarks on Facebook and other social media sites: “Imagine how Americans would feel if someone invited Bin Laden,” said one. At the center...

    Two members of Students for Life at Fresno State University have filed a lawsuit against assistant professor of public health, Greg Thatcher, for violating their right to free speech when he and his students erased their pro-life chalk messages off the sidewalk. The pro-life group claimed they had permission from Student Involvement and email as proof. In a video that surfaced, a number of students are seen scrubbing the pro-life messages off the sidewalk with their shoes. When confronted by pro-life members Bernadette Tasy and Jesus Herrera, they reply their teacher, “Thatcher,” told them to do it.

    The newly-elected student government President and Vice President at Clemson University are already ruffling feathers with a proposal to institute mandatory LGBTQ “ally training” for faculty and staff. Student Body President Killian McDonald and Vice President Jaren Stewart ran on a platform that included a commitment to raising Clemson’s “Campus Pride Index” score, which currently stands at 1.5 stars out of a possible 5.0.

    Xavier Becerra, the California AG who charged the Center for Medical Progress with 15 felony counts for its undercover reporting on Planned Parenthood, will not be opening an investigation into the millions of dollars kept hidden by UC President Janet Napolitano.An audit, which I wrote about here last month, found that Napolitano’s office amassed $175 million in reserve funds by repeatedly overestimating costs and then spending less than it claimed was needed. Meanwhile, the office was also paying salaries significantly higher than comparable workers in state government and covering lavish travel expenses.When the auditor asked school administrators at the...

    The U.C. Berkeley newspaper, The Daily Californian, ran an op-ed today by a “brown trans femme” – whatever the hell that is – titled, “Campus must prioritize safety of marginalized over free speech.” It was written by a third-year transfer student studying political science and ethnic studies, named Juniperangelica Xiomara Cordovo-Goff. This person is an incoming ASUC Senator and lead organizer with the Transgender Law Center. The entire piece is a contemptible, hate-filled hit job on our country and every Caucasian in it.

    Night after night, I stay up late watching documentaries about World War II. I’m obsessed with it. Not surprising, since it was the biggest event in the history of the human race. My father was in the Navy during the war, though to this day, I am not sure what he did. My father-in-law served in combat under Patton and was awarded the Silver Star for combat gallantry, before he was 22 years old, fighting hand to hand against the toughest of the tough, Hitler’s S.S., near Zeitlen. The documentary I am watching right now is The War by Ken...

    American University Police are hot on the trail of a racist criminal who lynched 12 bananas at American University in Washington D.C. All 12 bananas were hung with identical black cord fashioned like a noose from lampposts on campus. According to the New York Times, the FBI is assisting in the investigation. The May 1 hangings coincided with the first day a black woman, Taylor Dumpson, took the office of student body president at AU. What are reported to be racist messages were inscribed on the bananas: “AKA FREE,” an apparent reference to the Alpha Kappa Alpha sorority, which is...

    Students at Indiana’s Butler University will soon learn “strategies for resistance” to oppose President Donald Trump. Students paying roughly $36,000 in tuition have signed up for a “Special Topics” class titled “Trumpism & U.S. Democracy.” The course, which begins in August and runs until December, explicitly charges the Republican with “perpetuating sexism, white supremacy, xenophobia, nationalism, nativism, and imperialism.” "This course explores why and how this happened, how Trump’s rhetoric is contrary to the foundation of the U.S. democracy, and what his win means for the future,” reads a description on Butler’s website, first reported Wednesday by The Heartland Institute....

    In a contentious 4 ½ hour legislative hearing yesterday in Sacramento, Janet Napolitano, President of the University of California made a pro-forma apology for conduct that should have gotten her fired. She tried to rig an independent state audit, and she got caught, and she is sorry [I paraphrase]. Alexi Koseff explains further in the Sacramento Bee: University of California President Janet Napolitano apologized Tuesday for creating the “wrong impression” that she had improperly interfered in a critical state audit of her office released last week. At a legislative hearing to review the audit findings, Napolitano acknowledged that she...

    When the College Republicans chapter at Maryland’s Hood College decided to put up a temporary display honoring prominent conservatives, the group wanted to promote the free exchange of ideas. “We just wanted to provoke thoughtful discussion,” said club president Christopher Gardner. “We have done that.” In reality, the young Republicans accomplished even more by exposing how close-minded many of their fellow students have become.

    Black students at Columbia University protested a campus statue of Thomas Jefferson last week by covering the statue, which stands in front of the journalism building, with a Ku Klux Klan hood and posing with signs disparaging Columbia University for celebrating the legacy of a man they regard as a white supremacist, hypocrite, rapist and a “symbol of violence against Black and brown bodies and their consciousness.” The group protesting, Mobilized African Diaspora (MAD), compiled a statement of complaints on its web site condemning the 103-year-old statue of a Founding Father and principal author of the Declaraton of Independence, Thomas...

    Cutting off federal funds to permissive universities and police departments is a good first step When I first saw the video of the Berkeley riots from this past weekend, I thought to myself, well, it’s good that those on the Political Right are fighting back. After a few minutes, though, I realized that unless the police and the courts stop this, someone will eventually get killed. It’s hard to blame folks on the Right for showing up prepared for a fight, especially in radical whack-a-doodle Berkeley. The authorities there – if you can even call them that — seldom do...

    The Libertarian Republican reported: The University of Alaska Anchorage is displaying a professor’s painting that depicts Captain America holding the severed head of President Donald Trump, reports Campus Reform. The work, created by Assistant Professor of Painting Thomas Chung, is being presented as part of a month-long faculty art exhibition in the university’s fine arts gallery, reports KTUU. “It’s an image of the actor who plays Captain America, and two eagles are sort of screaming into his ears, and he’s holding the severed head of Trump, and there’s a young Hillary Clinton clinging to his leg,” Chung said to describe...
