    It would appear that higher education has become a Politically Correct caricature of itself.  Yet for an increasing number of students, this is no laughing matter, for academia’s ceaseless drift toward the abyss of far-left ideology has been accompanied by an increase in threats of violence. College campuses in many places have become dangerous for certain kinds of students. Specifically, they have become dangerous for conservative students.

    Allison Stanger, the professor at Middlebury College in Vermont who was viciously attacked by a mob of students determined to prevent author and scholar Charles Murray from speaking, lays the blame for the incident at the feet of President Donald Trump. "Students are in a justifiable state of anxiety since Trump was elected," Stanger said. "My assumption that they could rationally listen to Mr. Murray's controversial views and debate them in a civil manner was my error. Their response of beating me senseless was something I should have anticipated. I violated their 'safe space' by trying to inject an unwelcome...

    Not to be overly dramatic, but a civil war has begun in America. Everyone knows it to be true, but no one knows what comes next. The conflict of visions between freethinkers and the socialists who believe government should hammer humanity into model citizens has reached what divorce lawyers call “irreconcilable differences.” Evidence of the hostilities is abundant. Starting with the daily exchange of conflicting, angry “news” stories pandering only to viewers on one side of the great divide. These stories offer no conciliatory or constructive narratives, just animus, angst, and cold anger. As with the first US Civil War,...

    Sweden’s immigration policy is honourable but has not come without social problems — which in turn herald a political shakeup. Sweden has accepted more refugees per capita than any other European country. At the height of the European refugee crisis in 2015, Sweden accepted 10,000 refugees per week. Sweden’s liberal immigration policy is honourable, but it does not come without problems. As social problems increase, Sweden’s far right party, the Sweden Democrats (SD) are gaining territory and will likely be the major winner in the next election. Sweden has 53 areas defined as particularly vulnerable areas, vulnerable areas, and risk...

The short, less-than-a-minute video appeared on Facebook on the Senate Democrats page as "words of inspiration."  They are really pushing to incite the people to violence, something that is against the law in this country, but we already know that Ms. Lynch is a criminal herself,...

She was treated at Porter Hospital and released. Charles Murray, a political scientist who has been criticized for his views on race and intelligence, was invited to speak on campus by a student group. He was greeted late Thursday afternoon outside McCullough Student Center by hundreds of protesters, and inside Wilson Hall, students turned their backs to him when he got up to speak.

    A new study shows that only 17 of 35,413 domestic violence incidents resulted in a gunshot wound. The study was based on police reports collected in Philadelphia in 2013. From psychcentral.com: A new study shows that when guns are part of domestic violence, women actually suffer fewer injuries, but experience greater fear. According to a researcher at the University of Pennsylvania, thatÂ’s because when a gun enters the situation, women are more likely to back down than fight back. This is consistent with the use of guns in other crimes, and in self-defense. It is not limited to women....

    Here’s the left’s next great idea for bringing down President Trump: another women’s march. Which means another public instance of Trump haters shouting slogans to one another and mistaking it for constructive politics. What progressives need to defeat Trump is outreach, but all they have is outrage. On March 8, organizers seem to be aiming for a different vibe than the librarians-in-pussy-hats element that made the first women’s march after Trump’s inauguration so adorable. Instead of milling around Washington, organizers have in mind a “general strike” called the Day without a Woman. In a manifesto published in The Guardian on...

Trump’s comments during a Florida campaign rally on Saturday – which some took as a misstatement about a supposed terror attack – dovetail with what Springare has been seeing during a typical week in Orebro, Sweden. Five rapes, three assaults, a pair of extortions, blackmail, an attempted murder, violence against police and a robbery made up Springare’s caseload for a five-day period earlier this month, according to a Feb. 3 Facebook post he wrote.

UC Berkeley, a public campus once celebrated as the birthplace of the Free Speech Movement of the 1960s, now apparently celebrates the use of violence to suppress free speech and violate the civil right rights of guest speakers and fellow students.

    The violence at the UC Berkeley campus Wednesday night which cancelled the speech of alt-right provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos is such a debacle for the national opposition to Trump that it almost defies belief. Consider the context. The Trump regime tells the media to “keep its mouth shut,” declares a “running war” against the press, and promotes “alternative facts.” Orders State Department personnel using a “dissent channel” created for the explicit purpose of allowing employees to voice dissenting views without fear of retribution that they should resign. Forbids the staff of various federal agencies from speaking in public either by press...

    Democratic Rep. Val Demings (Fla.) said on Thursday that the violent riots that took place at the University of California, Berkley the prior night were a "beautiful sight." Breitbart editor Milo Yiannopoulos, a vocal Donald Trump supporter, was scheduled to speak at UC Berkley on Wednesday night, but the event had to be canceled due to violent protests from students and other activists. "The university said fires were set, including one caused by a firebomb that ignited a generator-powered spotlight, and commercial-grade fireworks were thrown at police," NBC News reported of the riots. One witness reported seeing a large crowd yelling "No Trump,...

    I desperately want Donald Trump to be a good President. If he could unravel the harmful policies of the Obama administration, and take a wrecking ball to entrenched bureaucratic and political power in Washington D.C., he could go down as one of our nation's greatest leaders. Or he could become a laughing stock. An embarrassing political footnote. Something akin to Minnesota electing Jesse Ventura to be governor. Sometimes the moment can make the man. I've been waiting for Democrats to rise to the occasion of the Trump presidency by becoming the loyal opposition. Trump would be a better sort of...
  • Who is behind the defense of muslims coming here?

    Who is behind the organized effort to flood muslims into this country? It has to be someone at a very high level of government, or someone with a LOT of money and influence, or both. No one has this type of concern for anyone who is a refugee who is a Bible-based person, or Christians anywhere who are suffering from abuse, assault or murder. This is coming from some very high level people. The influx of so many muslims who hate those who follow the Bible is a very real danger to all of us who are Bible-based believers. It...

    A Berkeley middle school teacher who was accused of instigating a violent clash with neo-Nazis in Sacramento this summer is back at it, recorded in a deranged rant at a Berkeley protest against Milo Yiannopoulos shortly before violence erupted Wednesday. Yvette Felarca, a social studies teacher at Martin Luther King Jr. Middle School, attended a protest against Yiannopoulos’ scheduled speech at the University of California Berkeley Wednesday, when she spoke out against the Breitbart senior editor’s controversial views and called on protesters to prevent him from speaking “by any means necessary.” In a video posted to YouTube on Thursday, Felarca...

    The descent started when Obama (edited) started wielding his phone and pen which, thankfully, is now being undone. In this process, he enabled a sense of entitlement among the various fringe groups that comprise what is really a minority (in numbers), Democrat party. Chief among their sense of “entitlement” is the use of the force of government to foist and decree various mandates upon the rest of us – without debate or even the legislative process. In fact, all debate is mostly suffocated by claims of “racism” with the help of the complicit media. I am reminded of an analogous...

    BERKELEY, Calif. .(KTVU) - U.C. Berkeley Police officers were standing by Thursday evening, for the weekly meeting of the Berkeley College Republicans. It is the organization that invited alt-right firebrand Milo Yiannopolous to campus the night before. His appearance was cancelled when organized agitators invaded a peaceful protest, setting fires and breaking windows at the Student Union venue. "Milo had a right to speak, Milo should have been allowed to speak," declared club President Jose Diaz, to an overflow club meeting of some thirty students, some spilling into the hall. UCB estimated the campus property damage at $100,000. But the...

    Professional MMA fighter and UFC Veteran, Jake Shields, was forced to rescue a civilian who was being severely beaten by “anti-fascist” rioters in Berkeley, California, on Wednesday, after police officers allegedly refused to intervene. Realizing that law enforcement officers were not going to help the man who was being cornered and violently attacked, Shields took the moment into his own hands, and fought off the mob of rioters while he helped the injured and bloodied man to safety. “The show got cancelled so I was kind of checking things out,” said Shields in an interview with Breitbart Tech. “Obviously it...

    I’m writing this Monday night while disgusted at the lies and misinformation on the news, and you probably shouldn’t write while disgusted. But here you go… Democrats, both elected and with media credentials, are in the midst of an attempted overthrow of the government right now. They are not taking up arms themselves; they’re simply hoping to inspire aimless drum circlers to do their bidding. And there is no sign of them stopping until someone gets hurt or worse. Everything changed on Jan. 20 when Donald Trump took office. Supposed journalists put away their pens and took out the long...
