    by Becca LondonAt the U.S. Senate on Wednesday, several Biden nominees for Federal judicial positions appeared before Judiciary Committee members for questions. But one group of questions in particular is causing shock and even anger among the public as the video starts to go viral. The questions were posed by Lousiana Senator John Kennedy (R) to state Judge Charnelle Bjelkengren, who was nominated by Biden for the lifetime position of U.S. District Judge for the Eastern District of Washington. The "answers" were non-existent. Kennedy began by asking Judge Bjelkengren, about Article V of the US Constitution. Bjelkengren responded, "Article V...

    Hollywood unleashes a monster upon itself. Cinema is a rare art form that transcends all boundaries and brings people together. Nowhere else does a diverse group of people sit together to experience similar emotions simultaneously. Audiences are enthralled together, they laugh together, they cheer together, they jeer together, they cry together, and if the work is admirable, they applaud together. SNIP When award nominations are announced, many in the media study the demographic groups of the nominees instead of the quality of their work. A few days back, the same Hollywood that sanctimoniously brands a large section of the public...
  • Professor Maitland Jones and Declining Standards in Higher Education. Universities must abandon both social engineering and the “customer-service” model.

    As a direct result of student complaints that his course was too difficult, Maitland Jones will no longer be teaching organic chemistry at New York University (NYU). Jones has a distinguished record, having taught at Princeton for 43 years before retiring. He then continued to teach at NYU for 15 years because he loves his subject and wants to share his enthusiasm with later generations. The termination of his year-by-year contract came because he refused to lower the standards of learning that students were expected to attain. This serves as a sad reminder of the many things that have gone...

    The College of Medicine at Texas A&M University removed prominently placed photos of white male alumni to show its commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion, it stated in a recent survey. The institution completed the survey for the Association of American Medical Colleges last year, which the organization used for its Diversity, Inclusion, Culture and Equity Inventory, according to the Washington Examiner, which reviewed the documents and reported on them Monday.

    A California college professor is fighting back after he says his job has been threatened due to allegations of racism and hate speech that he said were “completely fabricated.” Tenured Bakersfield College history professor Matthew Garrett said he and other faculty members of a free speech coalition were targeted with false allegations after they asked questions during a campus diversity meeting last October. Shortly afterwards, Garrett received a notice of unprofessional conduct by the administration that claimed he had caused “real harm” to students and said he was being removed from the diversity committee “effective immediately.” In December, vice president...

    Florida Governor Ron DeSantis slammed the National Hockey League (NHL) in a statement Friday afternoon after the league posted what the state deemed to be a “discriminatory” job posting. “The NHL is proud to announce its first-ever Pathway to Hockey Summit launching during our 2023 All Star festivities in South Florida!” the NHL said in the job posting on LinkedIn. “The Pathway to Hockey Summit is a career event for diverse job seekers who are pursuing careers in hockey. The day will be filled with guest speakers and panelists, networking opportunities, and more!” The event takes place on February 2...
  • The New Religion of DEI Will Destroy Everything

    The self-described “Three Amigos,” Justin Trudeau, Joe Biden, and Lopez Obrador agreed to The Declaration of North America. It is very disturbing. Their primary goal is Marxist diversity, equity, and inclusion. There are six pillars: 1) diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI); 2) climate change and the environment; 3) competitiveness; 4) migration and development; 5) health; and 6) regional security. Border security was not even on the agenda, but DEI was number one. We had our FAA NOTAM system crash yesterday and all our enemies know it. We do not have any backup for our satellites, our Global Positioning System, should...

    The Department of Veterans Affairs has a gender gingerbread person. NASA says beware of micro-inequities. And if U.S. Army servicewomen express “discomfort showering with a female who has male genitalia,” what’s the brass’s reply? Talk to your commanding officer, but toughen up. These are details from hundreds of pages of diversity and inclusion training materials used by the federal government in 2021 and obtained under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). Everyone in corporate life knows such training, lampooned in the second episode of the TV show “The Office.” Yet taxpayers might be curious how their money is being spent...

    Don’t allow the left to wield DEI unopposed — conservative students should begin filing complaints for speech that attacks their identity categories’ A professor recently began to advance his idea on how to combat onerous progressive ideologies on campus, encouraging students to report professors who bash Christians, white people and conservatives to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion and Title IX offices for investigation. Conservative students should file complaints for speech that attacks their identity – especially when it comes from a professor, said Adam Ellwanger, a professor of English at the University of Houston-Downtown, in a recent telephone interview with The...

    Offices with titles such as “Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion” have become common in business, government, and universities. Employees are sometimes required to take courses in diversity training, and, in some well-known cases, employees have been dismissed for refusing to participate. In spite of its widespread use in college admissions, and in hiring and promotion decisions in business and government, the exact meaning of “diversity” remains unclear. Yet diversity issues are important, as evidenced in part by the Supreme Court’s recent discussion of the legality of using affirmative action to pursue diversity goals.

    HARRISBURG — The American population might be growing, but Pennsylvania remains a leading state for Americans to flee, rather than stay. The commonwealth is one of 18 states to lose population in 2022, according to new data from the Census Bureau, and one of the worst performers. The data is confirmation of a long-running trend: Pennsylvania has a population problem, and the end isn’t yet in sight. The latest Census data shows the American population grew by 1.26 million (0.4%) since a year ago, with the primary growth being more than 1 million immigrants landing on American soil. Natural change...

    We live under Sharia law. You don’t need to go to Afghanistan or Doha to find Islamic Sharia law being enforced, complete with penalties for blasphemy. You can find it right here in America. This story took place at Hamline University in Saint Paul where punishing blasphemy has made a comeback courtesy of woke administrators, Islamist staffers and Muslim Brotherhood front groups. A faculty member had included in their global survey of art history a session on Islamic art, which offered an optional visual analysis and discussion of a famous medieval Islamic painting of the Prophet Muhammad. A student complained...

    My parents were both physicists, specializing in astronomy. My mother went to MIT and Harvard, my father Harvard.Neither came from a privileged background. My mother (RIP) grew up the child of a single mother and had a deadbeat dad whom I never met. She hailed from Henryetta, OK, a town that even then was dying.My father came from a lower-middle class family. He is ethnically Jewish, and was enrolled at Harvard despite quotas that at the time limited the number of Jews who could be admitted (the same is done to Asians today).They retired as privileged, well-regarded scientists, financially secure....

    The woke war on the military has been overseen by the Biden administration and by disloyal military brass who have sought to advance their careers at the expense of national security.But the latest attack is coming in the form of a bipartisan Senate bill for the NDAA.The National Defense Authorization Act is a massive annual omnibus defense spending bill that currently hovers around $850 billion. It’s been the subject of detailed negotiations and the only real win that Republicans have come away with is dumping Biden’s military vaccine mandate, but without actually assuring a return for those servicemembers forced to...

    I think that the old Communist East Germany should have been bought by the Disney Corporation, and kept going permanently, exactly as it was, as a tourist attraction. Schoolchildren from all over the Western world could have spent a few days there to find out what a dogma-driven society was really like. Tourists could have paid for package tours, escaping at the end of each gruelling day to special cordoned-off Western-style hotels. They could have realized, in time, what was happening here in supposedly Conservative Britain, where, as a new report has revealed this week, huge amounts of money and...

    A 26-year-old former Iowa youth pastor was arrested Monday on allegations he sexually assaulted at least one student and gave alcohol to high schoolers, court documents show. Caleb Daniel Toney was booked into the Polk County Jail on several misdemeanor charges, including assault with intent to commit sexual abuse and giving alcohol to an underage person, his inmate record shows. Court and jail records show he bonded out of jail Tuesday evening. The charges stem from several incidents across Story and Polk counties, the criminal complaints indicate. First, Ames police accuse Toney in a criminal complaint of getting a 15-year-old...

Police say the suspect came out of a refugee shelter in the village of Illerkirchberg on Monday morning and attacked the pupils. The older girl later died in hospital. German police have arrested a 27-year-old man, who they say is an asylum seeker from Eritrea. Officers searched a nearby building and found him with a knife they suspect was used in the attack. Two other men were also detained. The...

    The Democrats on Friday voted to remove Iowa as its first voting state and will replace it with South Carolina. Apparently Iowa is too white. This move was championed by Joe Biden to ‘reflect the party’s diverse electorate.’ AP reported: Democrats voted Friday to remove Iowa as the leadoff state on the presidential nominating calendar and replace it with South Carolina starting in 2024, a dramatic shakeup championed by President Joe Biden to better reflect the party’s deeply diverse electorate. The Democratic National Committee’s rule-making arm made the move to strip Iowa from the position it has held for five...
