    A tenured California professor is the latest academic to be accused of re-writing their personal history when claiming Cherokee heritage. Andrea Smith, an associate professor at the University of California Riverside and a noted scholar in Native American studies, has been called out by critics who say she, like former Harvard Law professor Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D- Mass., and Ward Churchill, a former University of Colorado professor who infamously likened 9/11 victims to Nazis, used the phony claims to enhance her faculty pedigree.

    Why was America so shocked by homegirl hoaxer Rachel Dolezal? The spray-tanned con artist, who resigned this week as head of the Spokane chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of (Artificially) Colored People, is the inevitable outcome of academia's cult of manufactured victimhood. College campuses have been grooming a cadre of professional minority fakers and fraudsters for decades. The notorious pretendians Ward Churchill and Elizabeth Warren faked their Native American status to bolster their faculty credentials at the University of Colorado and Harvard, respectively. It was a mutually beneficial racket for all poseur parties involved. Churchill and Warren...

    Among the works by her exhibited at ArtPal is a painting with the title “The Shape of Our Kind,” ... A better title would have been ‘The Slave Ship.” That’s the title that Romantic landscape painter J.M.W. Turner gave to his 1840 masterpiece, which hangs in the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. ... While Dolezal’s painting is not identical pixel for pixel, the style and content are unmistakably lifted from the Turner work. Unlike the Turner painting, which is priceless, Dolezal’s near-knockoff comes with a price: $5,100. Maybe a psychiatric evaluation wouldn’t be such a bad idea after all.

    Ward Churchill (remember him?) references the book, Smallpox and the American Indian, during his testimony in his civil suit against the University of Colorado at the City and County Building in Denver, Colorado March 23, 2009. Churchill is suing the University of Colorado for wrongful termination. AP photo. Today, I picked up 2 kids I carpool to the gymnastics club from their magnet school, as I do every Monday. Apparently, there was no mention about Columbus Day. Nada. Zippo. Nothing negative or positive. But they did watch a performance by dancers dressed like Mayan/Aztec Indians; and the older one said...

    Prof under investigation for violating amorous relationship policy. The University of Colorado has agreed to pay philosophy professor Brad Monton $120,000 plus the rest of his salary for the academic year — about $65,000 — in exchange for his resignation. Monton's departure, which Chancellor Phil DiStefano termed "a business decision," comes during a year of turmoil for the Boulder campus' philosophy department, which has been accused of creating a culture that's perceived to be unfriendly to women. Monton had been under investigation for potentially violating the university's amorous relationship policy with students, CU officials confirmed. Both Monton and CU deny...

    In her new autobiography, Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) reiterates claims that her parents "eloped" despite the existence of a marriage certificate and contemporaneous press accounts of their wedding. Although the subject caused her a major headache during her 2012 campaign for Senate, Warren devotes less than 1,500 words in the book to her claims of Native American heritage. ... Regarding the broader claim of Native American heritage, Warren's standard of proof in the book is simply "family folklore," unsubstantiated assertions made to her by family members about Cherokee and Delaware ancestors. Despite a protacted public debate on the subject and...

    Received from a Navy buddy who has since been seduced by the Dark Side. ===================================================== The real reason the Second Amendment was ratified, and why it says "State" instead of "Country" (the Framers knew the difference - see the 10th Amendment), was to preserve the slave patrol militias in the southern states, which was necessary to get Virginia's vote. Founders Patrick Henry, George Mason, and James Madison were totally clear on that . . . and we all should be too. In the beginning, there were the militias. In the South, they were also called the "slave patrols," and they...

    Ward Churchill's attorney plans to appeal the fired professor's case to the U.S. Supreme Court after the state's high court ruled Monday in favor of the University of Colorado. In the immediate aftermath of Sept. 11, the firebrand CU professor compared some World Trade Center victims to a notorious Nazi. The Board of Regents fired him in 2007 for academic misconduct after discovering patterns of plagiarism and fabrication in his body of work. Churchill has been trying to get his job back on the Boulder campus, where he taught ethnic studies. He won a lawsuit against the university in 2009....

    Ward Churchill, a controversial activist for academic freedom, at a speech at Trinity University on Tuesday accused the university's president, Dennis Ahlburg, of a smear campaign against him some years ago in Colorado. He also invoked the Hitler salute of “Sieg Heil” to Ahlburg's wife, Penelope Harley, as she stormed out of the auditorium after defending her husband in front of the audience of students and faculty. “This personal vindictiveness in an institution that has welcomed you ... I find very, very hard to listen to. And quite frankly, pretty darn insulting,” said Harley, before leaving for her son's soccer...

    Princeton Professor Paul Krugman's ugly New York Times blog on the post 9/11 environment stopped short of accusing Pres. Bush of masterminding the attacks, but it did accuse Bush and his associates of cashing in on the tragedy, of being "fake heroes." If nothing else, the timing was hateful – the very week when the former President was called on to emerge from relative obscurity to lend gravity to the memorial ceremonies. Krugman's hate cannot hold a candle to retired MIT professor, and radical anti-American, Noam Chomsky's article in Al Jazeera. Chomsky goes a step further to condemn the US...

    Rowdy protesters in Tucson have struck again. And this time, it involves riot police. Those protesters are hell-bent on keeping the district’s shocking, and concerning, Mexican-American studies program as-is. And while they’re causing a ruckus to prove it, there could be a lot more behind the story — mainly, who’s behind the protests. ....

    The Colorado Court of Appeals has upheld a lower court decision denying University of Colorado professor Ward Churchill's effort to get his job back. The court ruled that Denver District Judge Larry Naves was right to direct a verdict in favor of the university and to find that the university was entitled to "quasi-judicial immunity." "We conclude that the nature of the decision reached by the university and its regents, and the process by which that decision was reached, shared enough characteristics with the judicial process to warrant absolute immunity from liability," states the opinion from Judge Dennis Graham, who...

    A panel of judges on the Colorado Court of Appeals heard arguments from attorneys Wednesday about whether Ward Churchill should be allowed to teach again at the University of Colorado. As part of the appeal of the verdict in his lawsuit against CU, Churchill is asking that he be reinstated and paid the $1 he was awarded by a jury that agreed he was unlawfully fired for exercising his right to free speech. CU's regents voted 8-1 to fire Churchill in 2007 because of academic-misconduct violations, after faculty members charged with investigating his body of work found patterns of plagiarism,...

    Bill Ayers and a University of Wyoming student filed suit against UW on Thursday, asking a federal judge for an injunction allowing Ayers to speak on campus later this month. The lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court in Cheyenne, comes three days after UW banned Ayers, a University of Illinois-Chicago education professor with a radical past, from using any university venue for a planned April 28 lecture. The lawsuit alleges the ban is unconstitutional under First Amendment rights to free speech and to assemble. In 1969, Ayers co-founded the Weather Underground, a Marxist-Leninist anti-war group that claimed responsibility for a...
