    Ever since Donald Trump was elected president in November, liberal professors have been taking out their frustrations on their conservative and Trump-supporting students. At the University of Nevada-Las Vegas, College Republican President Jacob Deaville filed a formal complaint against his professor for discriminatory intent and unfair grading practices all because of his politics. The professor, who Deaville wished to remain unnamed since he was informed of his resignation from UNLV on Friday, taught a summer course called “Summer Cuisine,” which he took to fulfill an international cultures requirement for graduation. While the class was completely apolitical, the instructor singled out...

    A university professor in Las Vegas was filmed in class this week suggesting President Trump deserves some blame for the city’s shooting massacre because “all he’s done” is “encourage violence.” “Right when he got elected, I told my classes, three semesters ago, that some of us won’t be affected by this presidency, but others are going to die,” UNLV history professor Tessa Winkelmann said Thursday, according to video obtained by the Las Vegas Review-Journal. “Other people will die because of this. And we’ve seen this happen, right?” Winkelmann cited Trump’s comments threatening military action against North Korea and argued “words,...

    LAS VEGAS (FOX5) - Speaking to reporters in Washington Tuesday, Sen. Harry Reid called on Nevada higher education officials to consider changing the University of Nevada, Las Vegas' mascot and sports nickname. The statements came after a shooting in South Carolina that claimed nine lives sparked debate about displays of the Confederacy. On the campus of UNLV Tuesday, it was difficult to find anyone who believes the mascot, Hey Reb!, should be changed. “What happened over there is a tragedy of course, but what's happening here on campus is what's happening on campus. Go Rebels,” student Billy Watts said. “I...

Reid told reporters in Washington D.C. on Tuesday that Nevada's Board of Regents should take a look at changing UNLV's current mascot and sports team name from the so-called "Running Rebels."

    Two top student government leaders at the University of Las Vegas are requesting Hillary Clinton return the "outrageous" $225,000 speaking fee she reportedly will receive for an upcoming speech at the school in October. In a video circulated by the national Republican Party Friday, Elias Benjelloun, the UNLV student body president, and Daniel Waqar, the student government's public relations director, slammed the university's foundation for paying Clinton so much for the event. "We really appreciate anybody who would come to raise money for the university. But anybody who's being paid $225,000 to come speak, we think that's a little bit...

    Hillary Clinton will continue to “work hard” recovering from being “near broke” to stay not “truly well-off” by collecting $225,000 for a speech in Las Vegas at the public university campus there. The University of Nevada, Las Vegas coincidentally has just announced a tuition increase of 4% a year for the next 4 years. David Martosko of the UK Daily Mail reports: Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will collect a $225,000 speaking fee from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas in October, it emerged on Tuesday. The massive expense was confirmed just weeks after the university formalized a 4...

    This is the kind of blood-boiling story that should infuriate liberals and conservatives alike: Man leaves job at UNLV to accept prestigious state panel appointment. Man resigns after only six months, tells governor it is personal. Three days after resignation is final, he starts newly created job at UNLV, with 50 percent salary increase over his appointive post and 28 percent over previous university employment. There are those who will cynically say that Luis Valera, the occupant of these three high-level government jobs this year, is lucky to have friends in high places. There are those who will snidely say...

    Vice President Biden is slated to deliver the keynote address at a Las Vegas energy summit hosted by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) later this month. The fourth annual National Clean Energy Summit will also feature remarks from Center for American Progress President John Podesta, Energy Secretary Steven Chu, Navy Secretary Ray Mabus and California Gov. Jerry Brown (D), among others. “The Obama administration has proven time and again it understands the importance of building a competitive 21st-century economy through clean energy investments and policies that are focused on putting people back to work, reducing costs for consumers and...

    TULSA, Okla. (AP) All those late-season struggles are behind Mike Davis and Illinois. The NCAA tournament is all that matters now. Davis tied his season high with 22 points, Demetri McCamey added 17 points and seven assists and Illinois dominated UNLV 73-62 Friday night to set up another meeting between Fighting Illini coaches past and present in the Southwest region of the NCAA tournament. The ninth-seeded Illini (20-13) took control with an early 15-0 run and led by as many as 25 in a surprisingly easy rout, after losing 10 of their previous 16 games to bring into question whether...

    The likelihood of outrage seems inevitable this year in college football: The BCS controversy, which even President Obama has issued proclamations about, seems ready to explode, since six undefeated teams - two from minor conferences - survive with only three games left in the season. Two conferences, Mountain West and Western Athletic (WAC) are excluded from automatic participation in the BCS, and must compete for one of two wildcard teams, and both still have undefeated teams. But should a team which has gone undefeated and unchallenged take a slot from Alabama or Florida, which are likely to also go undefeated......

    Politics: The senator who called the president a liar and never apologized may have worn out his welcome in his home state. Harry Reid may be riding the liberal agenda into political oblivion.In 2004, Republicans defeated Senate Minority Leader Tom Daschle largely on the theme that he neglected his home state in favor of national party interests. The GOP is hoping that in 2010 lightning will strike a second time, and Nevada polls indicate it may be more than wishful thinking. In 1998, Reid beat John Ensign by a hair-thin 428 votes. Ensign would go on to win Nevada's other...

    Failing Republican Party is leaving room for a one-party system Conservatism is not a bad thing. It has been made so over the last 30 years by several nasty men who perverted its tenets into a marketing strategy for their party rather than a set of ideas to lead Americans and the world. The ideas of national security, honor, justice, fiscal responsibility and small government are sound ideas to balance out competing ideas of big government. Converting them into a cynical coalition of people who live solely to thwart the efforts of anyone with ideas other than their own selfish...

    Unless you’ve been living in a bunker for the last few years, you’ve probably heard some deeply unsettling news about the Islamic Republic of Iran. Nearly every day there is a story on the news about the threat of Iran becoming a nuclear power. The media would like us to believe that Iran’s government is run by a bunch of disorganized cavemen savages who thirst for Jewish and American blood. Unfortunately for the media spin doctors who perpetuate this fallacy, this is not true at all.

    School gained valuable publicity from event, officials say The University of Nevada, Las Vegas really did pull out all the stops for CNN this week -- including waiving the cost of renting the Cox Pavilion. University officials said Friday that the publicity gained from the event more than compensated for the estimated $60,000 the university might have charged for use of the facility. "This was certainly in the university's interest, given the national attention, and we saw it as an educational experience," said UNLV spokesman Dave Tonelli. CNN paid all other costs associated with the event, including expenses incurred for...
