    COLUMBIA, South Carolina — Donald Trump defeated GOP rival Nikki Haley in the South Carolina primary Saturday night, securing yet another win for the former president. The race was called almost immediately after the polls closed at 7 p.m., with Trump securing all 29 winner-take-all state delegates. With some 65 percent of the vote in, Trump was up by roughly 20 points. “This was a little sooner than we anticipated. And even a bigger win than we anticipated,” Trump said to applause on stage at the state fairgrounds in Columbia moments after the victory. “I have never seen the Republican...

    Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton decried antisemitism on U.S. college campuses on Saturday, telling an audience at the Munich Security Conference that young people in America are “woefully uninformed” about antisemitism and the Holocaust. Clinton, now a professor at Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs, described an atmosphere in which students who are highly engaged on global issues only regularly protest Israel, despite a lack of knowledge about the history of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. A series of recent events on campus exemplify the issue, Clinton said. “Last week we had three panels about Ukraine, and they were...

    A prosecutor investigating the dramatic live-broadcast armed assault last week on an Ecuadoran television station was shot dead Wednesday, the country's attorney general said. "In the face of the murder of our colleague Cesar Suarez... I am going to be emphatic: organized crime groups, criminals, terrorists will not stop our commitment to Ecuadoran society," Attorney General Diana Salazar said in a statement on X, the platform formerly known as Twitter. Local media broadcast images of Suarez's truck with bullet holes through the driver's window on a street in the port city of Guayaquil, the nerve center of Ecuador's war against...

    President Joe Biden greenlit the release of Colombian businessman Alex Saab, accused of acting as Venezuelan socialist dictator Nicolás Maduro’s top money launderer, on Wednesday. Saab’s release is allegedly the result of a prisoner swap with the rogue socialist regime that will also allow for the release of unjustly detained Americans in Venezuela, the Associated Press reported. Saab, 51, is a close personal ally of Maduro and is widely considered the socialist dictator’s financial brain. American law enforcement authorities arrested Saab in Cape Verde in 2020 after the Department of Justice indicted him in 2019 on charges of laundering $350...

    Hillary Clinton’s fall class at Columbia University felt more like being in a “late-night talk show” audience than a college course, one of many complaints from underwhelmed students, according to a Huffington Post op-ed published Sunday. Clinton did not read students’ assignments, attend discussion sessions, or hold office hours, and students complained that their questions about controversial topics were avoided, according to the piece. The column by student Cate Twining-Ward was headlined: “I Thought Taking A Class Taught By Hillary Clinton Would Be Empowering. I Was Wrong.” Twining-Ward expressed her disappointment about the class and interviewed a few of her...

    Columbia University’s School of Social Work proceeded with its “teach in” on the so-called “significance” of the October 7 terror attacks against Israel by Hamas, despite claiming that the event had been canceled. “Another smoldering heap of a university,” reacted X/Twitter user and internet personality Aviva Klompas, sharing a video footage from the “teach in.” “Columbia University stated that a planned student event to celebrate the October 7 ‘Palestinian Counteroffensive’ would not be permitted to take place,” Klompas added. “Yet here they are calling murder, rape, torture and kidnapping ‘great feats’ inside the @ColumbiaSSW building.” “No doubt the university will...

Officials say Manuel Rocha, 73, was arrested in Miami on Friday on a criminal complaint. According to sources, more details about the case are expected to be made public at a court appearance Monday. One of the two people who came forward with the complaint said the Justice Department case accuses Rocha of working to promote the Cuban government’s interests.

    This week was a sad awakening for me. I attended a discussion group regarding the situation in the Mideast at my synagogue. Of the ten attendees I was the only one to express concern about the level of anti-Semitism which was occurring around the USA. Others that spoke expressed their concern about the aggressiveness of the Israeli government and negative treatment of Arabs. I entered the room somewhat depressed that so many people will die because of the Oct 7th attack but left even more upset. ... I was not prepared for the level of Jewish support for the Palestinian...

    The anti-Israel protests at Columbia Law School not only haven’t tapered off, but they’ve actually gotten worse. Larger crowds have assembled with the usual signage and chanting. But on Thursday, things were taken to another level when a crowd of demonstrators invaded the lobby of the school, drowning out normal conversations and shutting down several classes for a few hours. The intimidation of Jewish students and those who spoke out against Hamas was also reported. And what did Columbia do in response? Essentially nothing. In the days since, they’ve said nothing about whether the protesters will face any consequences. They...

    Columbia University announced it has suspended the school's Students for Justice in Palestine and Jewish Voice for Peace chapters.

This decision was made after the two groups repeatedly violated University policies related to holding campus events, culminating in an unauthorized event Thursday afternoon that proceeded despite...

    Jewish billionaire and philanthropist Henry Swieca quit the Columbia University board of directors over what he called the Ivy League school’s “moral cowardice” for allowing a “blatantly anti-Jewish” sentiment to thrive on campus. “To my deep regret the reputation and integrity of Columbia University, and by extension Columbia Business School, have been significantly compromised by a moral cowardice that appears beyond repair,” Swieca said in a resignation letter made public this week, Fox News reported. “This is abhorrent,” he wrote in the scathing letter. “Any other minority group on campus would never have to face anything close to this level...

    Dozens of Columbia University students staged a walkout from former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's class there on Wednesday in protest of the school’s handling of a truck seen near campus displaying the images of students belonging to groups who signed an anti-Israel statement, a report says. Roughly 30 students of the class of 300 abruptly stood up and left the room a half hour into the lecture on women’s involvement in peace processes hosted by Clinton and Keren Yarhi-Milo, the dean of Columbia’s School of International and Public Affairs (SIPA), according to The New York Times. The students reportedly...

Sherrod Brown’s (D-OH) seat.During the forum, Moreno — who legally migrated from Columbia — listed eliminating illegal immigration as one of the three biggest issues facing the business community, thereby identifying it as something that Congress should promptly address.

    The president of Accuracy in Media — the group that deployed “doxxing trucks” to Ivy League schools mired in pro-Palestinian controversies — had his home searched by a cadre of rifle-toting SWAT officers in the early hours of Friday, The Post has learned. Accuracy in Media boss Adam Guillette was away from his North Florida home when he received a call from local authorities Friday notifying him that officers had searched his home around 1:30 a.m. after receiving a call falsely claiming that Guillette was at home and pointing a gun at his wife’s head. Guillette, who was out of...

    I’m Obama’s college classmate at Columbia University, Class of ’83. We’ve both had interesting political careers since graduating from Columbia. We stand as polar opposites on every issue. My classmate Obama clearly learned well at Columbia (even though he was rarely, if ever seen there by anyone- classmates or professors). I’ve already written about Obama aka “the ghost of Columbia.” I believe he spent his two years, after transferring to Columbia, at our sister school in the old Soviet Union- studying communism. And at Columbia at the time, the big strategy everyone talked about was called “Cloward-Piven.” It was a...

    Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had an extended argument on Monday with a heckler screaming about the "warmongering" policies of President Joe Biden. During a panel event to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) at Columbia University in New York City, Clinton and an unnamed man engaged in a heated exchange that went on for more than three minutes. The panel discussion, moderated by Clinton, abruptly ground to a halt over the man's demands that Clinton address his claim that the "idiotic" policies of Biden run the risk of setting off World War...
