  • Elizabeth Warren Offers Latest Version of Debunked 'Elopement' Story In New Book

    Breitbart ^ | 23 Apr 2014 | Michael Patrick Leahy
    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...

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.

    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....

Bush of masterminding the attacks, but it did accuse Bush and his associates of cashing in on the tragedy, of being "fake heroes."

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...

    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...

    BOULDER, Colo. — When it comes to being an academic under fire, ex-Weatherman Bill Ayers can empathize with fired University of Colorado professor Ward Churchill. Currently a professor at the University of Illinois in Chicago, Ayers’ 22 years of teaching did little to prepare him for the media firestorm that enveloped him during last year’s presidential election. Conservatives — and vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin in particular — made much of then-candidate Barack Obama’s links to Ayers, who co-founded the violent leftist group Weather Underground in the 1960s. Ayers, who’s coming to CU next week to appear with Churchill...

    Weather Underground co-founder Bill Ayers, a lightning rod of controversy during last year's presidential election, will visit the University of Colorado next month to speak in support of Ward Churchill just days before the fired professor's lawsuit against CU goes to trial. CU fired Churchill in 2007 after the university concluded he plagiarized and lied about historical facts in his writings. Churchill, however, claims he lost his job over a controversial essay about the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. He sued the university to get his job back; that lawsuit goes to trial in Denver on March 9. Ayers made...

    Former Gov. Bill Owens said in a deposition it's a good thing the University of Colorado ignored him when he urged that professor Ward Churchill be fired over a controversial essay. "I'm glad that the university, its counsel, and others who had a chance over a period of years to look at the law and look at the case didn't follow my advice and, in fact, chose to ignore it," Owens said in the deposition, taken one week ago today. Had CU fired Churchill for the essay - as Owens wanted - the school would have violated Churchill's free-speech rights,...

    Former guv, deposed for trial, calls Churchill 'a plagiarist and a fraud'. Former Gov. Bill Owens on Friday compared one-time University of Colorado professor Ward Churchill to a famous moviemaker - and it wasn't a compliment. "In retirement, he's starting to look a lot like Michael Moore," Owens and others, including University of Colorado regents, are being deposed as part of the trial, scheduled to start March 9 in Denver District Court. Owens declined to discuss in detail what kinds of questions he was asked and what answers he gave, but Owens wasn't shy about expressing his opinion of Churchill....

    Some University of Colorado faculty members say they’re saddled by useless rules, and they want school leaders to abandon mandatory information-technology training, tight alcohol policies and an extra layer of tenure review. Members of the Boulder Faculty Assembly’s executive committee on Monday signaled their support for a report that recommends the university revise, or scrap altogether, a batch of its rules — some that came about in the aftermath of controversy and during former CU President Hank Brown’s tenure. When President Bruce Benson went through a vetting process last spring before he was hired, CU employees repeatedly told him in...

    Bill Ayers, Distinguished Professor of Education and Senior University Scholar at the University of Illinois at Chicago, returned from summer vacation to find a letter from colleagues he’d worked with for decades.

    Sibling saddened to think of family milestones his brother has missed. Cathy Faughnan-Green misses her husband, Christopher, but still counts herself lucky. Christopher Faughnan died in the World Trade Center on 9/11. Last month, Cathy was remarried to a "great guy." The Faughnan family agrees. "I guess I miss everything," Cathy said of Christopher. "Him being a dad to my kids." When it became public that CU ethnic studies Professor Ward Churchill had called the 9/11 victims "Little Eichmanns," Michael wrote an open letter to the professor. In it he said Christopher was "a compassionate, respectful and generous man." "Mr....

    Churchill’s Ministry of Peace by: Bethany Stotts, September 04, 2008 Ward Churchill, a former ethnic studies professor at the University of Colorado (UC), may have been fired after a UC investigation revealed his plagiarism and poor scholarship, but some anti-war outlets still court the controversial professor’s company. Churchill has shown himself to be more than willing to equate the September 11, 2001 attacks with the death of infants in the Iraq War and to label the victims of the 9/11 attacks as “little Eichmanns.” During a 2006 interview on Hannity & Colmes, Churchill defended his comments, arguing that they were...
