  • Sunday News Roundup: Bill Maher’s Epic COVID Monologue

    I missed this Saturday, but it’s something everyone in America should be required to watch. – Bill Maher is mainly just another leftist propagandist talking head on your TV screen, but every once in a while he strays from the prevailing Democrat/media narrative, engages his own brain and speaks actual logic and facts about some topic or another. Whenever that happens, it’s generally worth listening to. Friday night, he went off on liberals and the rank disinformation they have bought into regarding COVID-19. He also excoriated the corrupt propaganda media for being guilty of systematically pounding that disinformation into the...
  • With Budgets Under Pressure, Colleges Cut Country-Club Staples Like Golf and Tennis. Sports lose varsity status in wake of Covid-19 cash crunch; schools rethink optics of costly, overwhelmingly white teams

    Colleges eager to cut costs amid a financial crisis brought on by the coronavirus pandemic have settled on an easy target: low-profile sports that don’t draw many spectators, attract a disproportionate number of white or foreign athletes and are relatively pricey to operate. Schools ranging from highly selective private institutions like Stanford University to public institutions including the University of Connecticut and the University of Akron are scrapping varsity teams for sports such as rowing, fencing, tennis and squash. The teams have small rosters and require expensive facilities. They also don’t make money for their schools. Dartmouth College, which is...

    HANOVER — Dartmouth College officials declined Wednesday to rule out layoffs and furloughs for some of its 3,900 employees, including non-tenured faculty, as the institution faces millions of dollars in projected losses over its spring and summer terms. Layoffs are a “part of a tool kit” that administrators need access to, but are seen as a last resort to stabilize the college’s financial situation past June 30, Executive Vice President Rick Mills said during a meeting with Valley News editors and reporters. “They are a tool that we deploy later and with more reluctance than most of these other tools...

    Former Gov. Michael Dukakis says a Cambridge man facing five years in federal prison for repeatedly lying to the FBI about his pal Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is “a fine young man” who “could have a great future in public service.” Dukakis went to bat for Robel Kidane Phillipos, 21, in a letter to U.S. District Court Judge Douglas P. Woodlock ahead of Phillipos’ sentencing today for making false statements to the FBI in its investigation of the Boston Marathon bombings. Prosecutors want five years. Phillipos and Tsarnaev, both 21, grew up together in Cambridge and were classmates at the University of...

    If you need an accurate update on some of the madness at the nation's institutions of higher learning, check out Minding the Campus, a nonprofit independent organization. John Leo, its editor in chief, says that the organization's prime mission is dedicated to the revival of intellectual pluralism and the best traditions of liberal education at America's colleges and universities. Leo's most recent compilation of campus madness leaves one nearly breathless. In a USA Today op-ed, Emily Walton, a sociology professor at Dartmouth University, said that all college students should take a mandatory course on black history and white privilege. She...

The Daily Caller News Foundation does not and will not publish truly private information such as home addresses. The Daily Caller News Foundation has determined that an influential Antifa leader uses aliases to spread radical and often violent rhetoric while concealing his actual identity.

    Dartmouth College lecturer Mark Bray made the argument to abolish capitalism in a recent op-ed for Truthout, linking capitalism to the prioritizing of profit over the environment and everything else. The professor has previously donated half of the profits from his book chronicling Antifa to the organization, written an introduction to an Antifa comic book, and tweeted glowingly about Antifa flags made by kids at a summer camp. Dartmouth professor argued on Tuesday that "if we don't abolish capitalism, capitalism will abolish us."

    And leaves academics stunned. "A study released Tuesday in the journal Scientific Reports found that snowfall on the highest peak in the Alaska Range has more than doubled since the start of the Industrial Revolution in the mid-19th century, which researchers attribute to climate change," Valerie Richardson reported in The Washington Times on December 19, 2017. "We were shocked when we first saw how much snowfall has increased," Erich Osterberg, an assistant professor of earth sciences who led the investigation with researchers from Dartmouth, the University of Maine and the University of New Hampshire, stated.

    HANOVER, N.H. – Dartmouth College students say three psychology professors facing sexual misconduct allegations created a "hostile academic environment" marked by excessive drinking, favoritism and at times inappropriate behavior. The attorney general's office began a criminal investigation last month after learning about allegations against psychology professors Todd Heatherton, Paul Whalen and Bill Kelley, all of whom have been put on paid leave and have had their access to campus restricted. Authorities haven't released any details, but 15 undergraduate, graduate and postdoctoral students recently wrote to the school newspaper, The Dartmouth, alleging the three created a hostile environment "in which sexual...

    Professor Mark Bray is what passes for the intellectual wing of Antifa. You might recall that I mentioned him here:Antifa, says Mark Bray, "have no allegiance to liberal democracy, which they believe has failed the marginalized communities they're defending." Professor Bray is a lecturer in history at GRID, the Gender Research Institute at Dartmouth, which is the usual social engineering flimflam masquerading as a field of scholarship, but it's Ivy League so it'll cost you an arm and a leg (metaphorically, I mean; not literally, like, say, attending a Charles Murray speech at Middlebury). Dartmouth College is in the town...

    HANOVER, N.H. — Josh Bean had two short touchdown runs, the Columbia defence had two goal-line stands in the last three minutes and the Lions held on to defeat Dartmouth 22-17 on Saturday to match their best start in 21 years. Following Bean’s second score, the Lions (6-0, 3-0 Ivy League) led 22-7 entering the fourth quarter in the 11th meeting in conference history between undefeated teams with at least five games played. They were in position to put the game away before Bun Straton’s end zone interception on the Lions’ next possession. Dartmouth (5-1, 2-1) followed with an 80-yard...

    Unable to hang Russia collusion charges on President Donald Trump, The Washington Post has turned to a new and far more dangerous tactic --normalizing and promoting left-wing hate groups in hopes of encouraging violent conflict against the president and, in particular, his supporters. Days before the rioting in Charlottesville, Va., the Post ran a feature on the cool kids who were gravitating to the anarchist movement. It delved into their weekly potlucks (deviled eggs, banana bread, occasional Popeye’s chicken and a late start because the group runs on "anarchist standard time") and how they wore black masks "so that authorities...

    Radical ideas that defy reality can flourish at Universities that indoctrinate students with intellectual insanity while inculcating them against Biblical morality. "Post-truth," the "Oxford Dictionary's Word of the Year 2016," provides an apt description of the culture and ideology propagated today on many of America's college campuses. The term is " … an adjective defined as 'relating to or denoting circumstances in which objective facts are less influential in shaping public opinion than appeals to emotion and personal belief.'" Consider the "IvyQ" conference held this year on the Harvard College campus. Harvard's “Office of BGLTQ Student Life” explains that "...

    At least one professor in America does not feel the Bern. University of Massachusetts Dartmouth Professor Jack Stauder says his political and ideological conversion away from socialism and Marxism occurred when he actually witnessed these systems in action. After traveling to more than 110 countries to pursue various forms of research, notably cultural anthropology, Stauder described his conversion from Marxism as a process of disillusionment. “I gradually became disenchanted with Marxism by visiting many of the countries that had tried to shape their societies to conform to its doctrines. I was disillusioned by the realities I saw in … socialist...

    Dartmouth University’s Alumni Relations department has concluded that no student will be punished for the Black Lives Matter incident last year, where activists stormed a library on campus and hurled racial abuse at students. In November it was reported that a 150-person strong group of BLM protesters stormed the campus study space, screaming racially motivated chants such as, “F*** you, you filthy white f***s!”, “F*** you and your comfort!”, and “F*** you, you racist s***s!” One girl was even reported to have been pinned by protesters against a wall, who allegedly shouted “filthy white bitch” in her face.

    A group called the Asian American Coalition for Education plans to file an official complaint tomorrow with the federal Department of Education and Department of Justice noting that Yale, Brown, and Dartmouth have “unlawfully discriminated” against Asian-Americans in their admissions policies. The Coalition, “which is composed of more than 100 local, state and national organizations,” claims the colleges “have the lowest acceptance rate for Asian Americans,” and maintain quotas for the (racial) group. It also points out that Asian-American enrollment at Yale has declined “despite the number of college-aged Asian-Americans more than doubling since 2011.” This is the first such...

    When a student-led organization at Dartmouth College petitioned the Library of Congress in 2014 to drop the term “illegal aliens” and instead use “undocumented,” the response was no. The reasoning, members of the group recall, was that “illegal alien” is an official U.S. government term for people who are in the country without proper documents. But the Dartmouth Coalition for Immigration Reform, Equality and DREAMers, or CoFIRED, motivated others – including librarian associations – across the nation to press the Library of Congress to stop using the term, which they argued dehumanizes undocumented immigrants. The Library of Congress listened, and...
