    ‘There [are] great books,’ Peterson said. ‘Read them. Ignore your professors’“How do you have the adventure of your life?” Canadian psychologist and professor emeritus Jordan Peterson said Wednesday evening in a keynote address at New York’s Plaza Hotel.“Tell the truth,” Peterson said.“And then…it’s so bloody interesting and engaging and exciting that it justifies the misery of your existence,” he stated.“What I can tell you: there’s great books,” Peterson said. “Read them. Ignore your professors.”Peterson delivered remarks to approximately 350 people at the seventh annual “Disinvitation Dinner” hosted by the Buckley Institute of Yale University. The Institute aims to “foster robust...

    Saifullah Khan was kicked out of Yale in 2019 after he had been both accused of rape and acquitted in 2018. He is now suing the school and his accuser for defamation of character. The Connecticut Supreme Court has ruled that his accuser, a fellow student, does not have "qualified immunity" for her unpersuasive testimony in a school hearing that Khan raped her after a 2015 Halloween party. Yale University President Peter Salovey denied he was directly involved in the matter, but admitted that "it seems odd that the university expelled Mr. Khan after he was acquitted. Before he was...

    A “Let’s Talk about Sex Baby: Why biological sex remains a necessary analytic category in anthropology” panel has been canceled by the American Anthropological Association and the Canadian Anthropology Society, which stated the topic would cause too much “harm.” “This decision was based on extensive consultation and was reached in the spirit of respect for our values, the safety and dignity of our members, and the scientific integrity of the program,” states a Sept. 25 letter to the panelists from the two groups. The panel was slated to be presented at the American Anthropological Association’s and Canadian Anthropology Society’s joint...

    Readers May recall this item from four months ago: Curious how when you hear of yet another educator being intolerant, childish, or wildly unhinged, you don’t need to ask what their politics might be. I was of course referring to Ms Shellyne Rodriguez, an art teacher at Hunter College, New York, and whose activities include menacing students whose views diverge from her own shouting profanities at said students, vandalising their property, and chasing people down the street armed with a machete. A liveliness subsequently blamed on “racists, white nationalists, and misogynists.” In a turn of events unlikely to surprise regulars...

    Meet the ‘Queen of Chaos,’ a 23-year-old college East Kentucky University student by the name of Rayanna Belle Brock, who’s made quite the splash on social media with her mugshots. In fact, she’s already been arrested a whopping 11 times! It all started back in March 2018 when she got caught shoplifting. At this point, however, she’s been taken in for all sorts of crimes, from terror-related offenses to stealing a firearm. If you check out her Instagram, you’ll find a highlight called ‘mugshawty,’ a nod to a popular account that shares mugshots from all over America. Rayanna proudly shows...

    It seems as though the difficulties of teaching elementary school never end for teachers. Between lesson planning, keeping a group of children together and quiet in the hallways, and dealing with parent complaints, the job is certainly not for the weak. However, it may be more challenging now than ever as diaper changing is added to many kindergarten teachers' ever-growing list of responsibilities. Kindergarten teachers are realizing that most of their students were never potty trained. Many teachers are asking themselves, why now? Up until recently, kindergarten students were fully potty-trained and had been for years, with the exception of...

    American Free News Network ^ | September 23, AD 2023 | John F Di Leo
    By now you have likely heard of a trending question in social media: women and girls are encouraged to ask the men in their lives how often they think of ancient Rome, with the expectation that they will be surprised to find that the answer is “frequently” or even “daily.” Speaking for myself, I have never kept tabs on how often I think of particular subjects, or of exactly which subjects I think of during a given day. I doubt if many people do. Certainly daily, or at least, almost daily, we all think of our work, our friends, our...

    n 2022, Jon Lauck published The Good Country: A History of the American Midwest, 1800-1900. His book describes a wonderful range of things to love about the 19th-century Midwest: its democratic civic ethos, the enduring Midwestern commitment to antislavery that resulted from the Northwest Ordinance’s original prohibition of the practice, and the wildfire-spread of co-educational colleges in the region. Lauck also adorns his book with wonderful quotations, which illustrate points such as the Midwestern love of literature that made it the talk of every table. “When William Dean Howells was visiting Representative James A. Garfield in Hiram, Ohio, in the...

  • Phyllis Schlafly - The Real rights Of Women - Being Mothers

    Phyllis Schlafly was a brilliant thinker. Here is proof: “Suppose the pay gap between men and women were magically eliminated. If that happened, simple arithmetic suggests that half of women would be unable to find what they regard as a suitable mate.” “What I am defending is the real rights of women. A woman should have the right to be in the home as a wife and mother.” “I think the main goal of the feminist movement was the status degradation of the full-time homemaker. They really wanted to get all women out of the homes and into the workforce....

    bram X. Kendi, ne Ibram Henry Rogers, is this generation’s Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton on steroids: race hustling shakedowns perfected. His target has been universities, which have been content to shower him with money, the most recent being Boston University, which lured him and his Center for Antiracist Research away from American University several years ago. Twitter founder Jack Dorsey gave Kendi a $10 million unrestricted grant, among other foolish donors who shoveled money at Kendi, when they aren’t paying him up to $40,000 for a half-hour “antiracist training” seminar on Zoom.Someone noticed a few weeks ago that Kendi...

    Digital-reporting systems on college campuses are not a new concept. Yet they are currently being manipulated, even exploited, to fuel a campus culture in which peers and even faculty patrol each other for “biased” speech and activities. In recent years, colleges and universities across the United States have proven that maintaining free speech, academic freedom, and the pursuit of truth is low on their list of priorities. Instead, allegedly “inclusive” and “diverse” university environments regularly fall prey to a single political narrative, often accompanied by the silencing of those who do not agree. As colleges and universities have pursued this...

    I hope he wins and bankrupts Yale. This is just another standard rape hoax. Post Millennial: A former Yale student who was kicked out of the school in 2019 after being accused and acquitted of rape in 2018 can now sue his accuser for defamation over statements she made during a school hearing on the matter after a Connecticut Supreme Court ruling over the summer. According to the New York Post, 30-year-old Saifullah Khan has had a $110 million defamation lawsuit pending against the school since 2019, and has been fighting to bring his accuser into the suit. In June,...

    Deion Sanders has made Boulder, Colorado, the improbable center of the sports world. Why it matters: In Sanders' first year, he's led the once-hapless Colorado Buffaloes to a 3-0 start. Among his biggest supporters — Black fans around the country. The big picture: Black households have been glued to the Buffs' first few televised games. Celebrities from Snoop Dogg to Dwayne Johnson are hyping the Buffs. Black teachers, with no previous connections to Colorado, on social media call Sanders an inspiration. Details: Sanders, aka Coach Prime, led the Buffs to a dramatic 43-35 double-overtime win over Colorado State on Saturday....

    Colorado Buffaloes coach Deion Sanders is one of the hottest coaches in football at the moment. The Buffaloes are currently 3-0 and ranked No. 19 in the Associated Press poll with a huge game at Oregon coming this weekend. But it wasn’t always clear that Sanders was headed for success in Boulder. He took plenty of criticism from posting his first meeting with his team. In no uncertain terms, he told the team that he was bringing his “Louis Vitton luggage” with him from Jackson and any player that didn’t like it should hit the portal. Over 40 players took...

    America’s educational institutions used to adhere to objective standards of excellence. Students and faculty members had to strive and were rewarded (or not) according to their performance. What their background might be or where their ancestors lived didn’t matter. That was true until a corrosive idea called “disparate impact” began taking hold in the country some 50 years ago. What that meant was that objective standards were objectionable if they resulted in poorer performance by certain racial groups. The obsession with disparate impact was kick-started by the Supreme Court’s 1971 Griggs v. Duke Power decision and has been growing in...

    James Cash Penney’s words are the embodiment of community minded free enterprise at its best. Penney was born in Hamilton, Missouri, on September 16, 1875. In 1902, he invested $2,000 with the owners of the Golden Rule chain of stores in a one-third partnership in a new Golden Rule store in Kemmerer, Wyoming. Wikipedia reports: "He participated in opening two more stores, and when Callahan and Johnson dissolved their partnership in 1907 he purchased full interest in all three stores. By 1912, there were 34 stores in the Rocky Mountain States. In 1913, he moved the company to the Kearns...

    Joe Biden on Thursday delivered remarks on his failed economic agenda dubbed “Bidenomics” at Prince George’s Community College in Largo, Maryland. Bidenomics = High mortgage rates, high inflation rates, collapsed banks, expensive groceries, record high rent, and dwindling retirement accounts. Core inflation is up, real wages are down and gas prices are soaring yet Joe Biden was out there today bragging about Bidenomics. Biden’s speech was a total disaster. He lost a few battles with his teleprompter and began shouting out of nowhere. At one point, Joe Biden suggested blacks and Hispanics don’t have high school diplomas. Biden falsely claimed...
