      Principal says Trump is worse than 9/11 terrorist  (Fox ks/0/2017)
• 
The principal of a fancy New York City private school says the election of President Trump is worse than the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.
• 
Steve Nelson, principal of the Calhoun School, fired off a hate-filled email to parents blasting the president.
• 
He also said Trump's election would be more devastating than Vietnam, Watergate and the assassination of the Rev.  Martin Luther King, Jr.

Just to put this in perspective, the principal believes President Trump is worse than the Muslim hijackers who flew jetliners into buildings and slaughtered thousands of Americans.
• 
The principal would have us believe that he was more disturbed by Trump's election than the sight of New Yorkers falling from the sky or the Twin Towers collapsing onto the streets of lower Manhattan.

In the liberal mindset, conservatives who support traditional marriage and securing the border and gun rights are not just deplorable.  They believe we are irredeemable deplorables.

President Trump has never waged jihad against Americans — nor has he assassinated a Civil Rights leader or napalmed a jungle in Vietnam.
• 
And to compare those horrific atrocities with the president's desire to make our nation great again is not just offensive — it's downright evil.

      Officials announce proposal that would establish California as separate nation  (Fox 01/27/2017)

The proposed "Calexit" initiative would ask voters to repeal part of the state constitution that declares California an inseparable part of the U.S.

If the proposal qualifies for the ballot and is approved by voters, it could be a step to a future vote on whether the state would break away from the rest of the nation.

      The Anti-Women March on Washington  (01/26/2017)
• 
This was not a women's march with any kind of logic behind it.  It was an anti-women march, and women participated because they fell for a steaming-hot pile of platitudes.
• 
These useful idiots were duped by Islamist Linda Sarsour, who is determined to normalize her extremist culture.
• 
It was one of the stupidest marches in the history of modern politics, and it says a lot about where we are as a country.
• 
In short, we are a bunch of spoiled ingrates who are so desperate to complain, we will demand rights we already have.
• 
Even Sarsour, whose religion forbids abortion, forbade pro-lifers from coming to the event.  This is a classic example of taqiya.  It is in the best interests of jihad for her to temporarily betray her religion and pretend to be pro-choice.
• 
The signs got way crazier.  "My pussy grabs back" was a common theme.
• 
Aren't these women embarrassed by the fact that their entire political ethos is based on a throwaway conversation that took place on a bus eleven years ago?
• 
I even saw young girls draped in pussy signs.  What kind of parent adorns their daughter with a sign that says "This pussy bites back"?
• 
Other favorites included "When will you shithead men finally die?!!," "Fuck you orange Hitler," "Women are perfect," "I hate Trump as much as I hate my bra," and the presumptuous "He thinks I'm sexy and that I can be grabbed.  Not my president."
• 
There was also a strange anti-white undertone to the whole thing.  I saw a black woman with a sign that said "Don't forget, white women voted for Trump
• 
I also saw a white woman with that sign.  She was recognizing the damage her fellow white women had done to the country and she was making a public apology.
• 
This is how it works with Islam.  You start with white guilt, throw on a layer of diversity, and the next thing you know, a Muslim woman is a feminist icon and liberals have been hijacked by "Alt-ISIS."
• 
Women at the march adorned one another with hijabs.  They even put one on a man.
• 
... poster for the event, which featured a Muslim woman in an American-flag hijab (yeah, right).  The woman in the graphic is tarted up like a whore, which is yet another Islamic contradiction.
• 
What the hell has all this Muslim propaganda got to do with women's rights?
• 
Are they marching for the girl in Pakistan who was recently burned alive by her mother for shaming the family?
• 
Are they marching for this new trend of Muslim women in Nigeria using babies as bombs?
• 
Did they express concern about Muslim women being banned from looking up while crossing the road?
• 
How about the Yazidi girls sold as sex slaves while these women were marching?

A defiant Secretary of State John Kerry on Wednesday defended the U.S.  decision allowing the U.N.  Security Council to formally condemn Israeli settlements last week, saying the Obama administration did so in the interest of a "just and lasting" peace – even as Israeli officials describe the move as a betrayal.

      Controversial Islamic center hosts interfaith call for peace, despite terror ties  (Fox 12/09/2016)
• 
A Boston Islamic center that has been linked to convicted terrorists is hosting an interfaith event on Sunday to promote peace.
• 
"My hope is that we can provide a place for members of the community, who are so fearful and concerned about our values being challenged, to speak up."
• 
"We need to affirm our values and be in solidarity with each other to protect all members of our community against hateful, divisive rhetoric."
• 
... Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center operates two mosques ... and one in Cambridge where several convicted terrorists reportedly worshipped.
• 
They include Boston Marathon bombers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev; Aafia Siddiqui, who plotted a chemical attack on New York City and Tarek Mehanna, who was sentenced in 2012 to 17 years in prison for conspiring to aid Al Qaeda.

In addition, a founder of ISBCC, Abduraham Alamoudi, was sentenced in 2004 to 23 years in prison for taking part in a plot to kill Saudi royal officials, has allegedly worshipped at the mosque.

Neither the mosque nor top officials have been implicated in criminal activity.
• 
But ... several speakers at the mosque have delivered fiery and hateful sermons, and that its connections to terror make it an unlikely host of an event calling for peace.
• 
"It's ironic that they would hold a rally against hate in one of the most hateful houses of worship in New England where imam after imam has been found to preach anti-Semitism, homophobia, and hate for the United States, its people and its government."

• 
Faaruuq told ... last year that ISIS was not created by Islamic teachings, but rather by America.
• 
"It was created by the United States' encouragement into other people's countries seeking weapons of mass destruction that don't exist.  Destroying their societies and leaving the bitter taste in young people's mouths."
• 
"ISBCC has graciously opened its doors to host a much-needed gathering dedicated to fostering an ethos of pluralism and standing firmly against prejudice and hate."

      Marxist Vegan Restaurant Closes After Customers No Longer Willing to Wait 40 Minutes for a Sandwich  (12/08/2016)
• 
A "Marxist" "collectivist" "worker-run" restaurant in Grand Rapids, Michigan, closed its doors this week after customers complained that they could no longer tolerate the bizarre hours, high prices and long lines.
• 
... the restaurant's business model, which did not allow for bosses or managers, promised a "living wage" to all employees and a strong union, did not allow the restaurant to make enough profit to stay in business.
• 
... customers complained that it was almost impossible to get a meal at the diner.
• 
... waited more than 40 minutes for a sandwich — and that's when the diner was even open.
• 
Because the employees set the shop's hours by group decision, the restaurant opened and closed at random times, leaving potential sandwich buyers totally confused.
• 
It turns out, in a shocking revelation to the store's management, that those Soviet bread lines were a bug, not a feature of Communism.
• 
Customers also complained that the restaurants "equal pay, no tipping" scheme failed to reward exceptional service, pointing out on the message board that "you shouldn't try running your business on political good will alone."
• 
When the diner offered a free meal to Grand Rapids police officers as a "thank you" for keeping their neighborhood safe, local socialists complained that the business was abrogating its core ideals by siding with fascists and supporting "nearly all-white police force in this era of police violence."
• 
So, in a no-win situation, and discovering first hand the troubles that have plagued Communism for more than a century, the restaurant was forced to close its doors.
• 
As one community member put it, they discovered that "you can't make payroll and your bills with Facebook and Tumblr ‘likes.'"
• 
The owner, for his part, is admitting his mistake.  When asked what his next venture would be, he told MLive.com that he was "taking a vacation."
• 
How bourgeois.

• 
... the Port Angeles turbines, which haven't yet been turned on, are expected to generate $1.39 per day in electricity, or roughly $42 per month.
• 
... the purpose of the "designers was to let people see how wind works." Asked if the intent of the project was to provide a cost-efficient means of electricity, she said it was not the primary reason. 
• 
"It is a piece of art," she added.
• 
... daily savings could be as high as $5.44 "at peak windspeed" but cautioned that "determination of actual benefit in dollars at this time would be speculative because the spires are not yet operational."

• 
"We call on all people of good conscience to join in disrupting the ceremonies.  If Trump is to be inaugurated at all, let it happen behind closed doors, showing the true face of the security state Trump will preside over.  It must be made clear to the whole world that the vast majority of people in the United States do not support his presidency or consent to his rule."
• 
"If you are living outside the US, you can take action at US embassies, borders, or other symbols of neocolonial power.  Our allegiance is not to 'making America great again,' but to all of humanity and the planet."

      Supreme Court sides with Samsung in patent dispute with Apple  (Fox 12/06/2016)
• 
Apple accused Samsung of duplicating a handful of distinctive iPhone features for which Apple holds patents: the flat screen, the rounded rectangle shape of the phone, and the layout of icons on the screen.
• 
At issue was how much Samsung is required to compensate Apple under an 1887 law that requires patent infringers to pay "total profit."
• 
Apple said that meant all the profits from the phone sales, while Samsung argued it was limited to profits related to the specific components that were copied.
• 
Samsung had argued that the hefty award ignored the fact that its phones contain more than 200,000 other patents that Apple does not own.
• 
Apple said the verdict was fair because the iPhone's success was directly tied to its distinctive look.

• 
However she also wonders whether Trump's successful bid to keep the manufacturer from moving 1,000 jobs from Indiana to Mexico is in fact a case of political influence on the free market.

      Obama Whitewashes Castro's Tyranny in "Carefully-Worded" Statement  (11/26/2016)
• 
President Obama and the Mainstream Media are mourning the death of Cuban dictator Fidel Castro — whitewashing his crimes against the Cuban people while comparing him to George Washington.
• 
It is absolutely sickening to watch the White House and the Mainstream Media mourn the loss of their beloved Castro — a ruthless dictator who was the personification of evil.
• 
And here is President Obama's statement:
• 
"At this time of Fidel Castro's passing, we extend a hand of friendship to the Cuban people.  We know that this moment fills Cubans - in Cuba and in the United States - with powerful emotions, recalling the countless ways in which Fidel Castro altered the course of individual lives, families, and of the Cuban nation.  History will record and judge the enormous impact of this singular figure on the people and world around him. 
• 
For nearly six decades, the relationship between the United States and Cuba was marked by discord and profound political disagreements.  During my presidency, we have worked hard to put the past behind us, pursuing a future in which the relationship between our two countries is defined not by our differences but by the many things that we share as neighbors and friends - bonds of family, culture, commerce, and common humanity.  This engagement includes the contributions of Cuban Americans, who have done so much for our country and who care deeply about their loved ones in Cuba.
• 
Today, we offer condolences to Fidel Castro's family, and our thoughts and prayers are with the Cuban people.  In the days ahead, they will recall the past and also look to the future.  As they do, the Cuban people must know that they have a friend and partner in the United States of America."

      Some in the media dig in against 'normalizing' Donald Trump  (Fox 11/21/2016)
• 
What those who decry the normalization of Barack Obama's successor are really saying is Trump is not a legitimate president, and doesn't deserve to be treated as such.
• 
"When Donald Trump won the presidency, our vocabularies didn't bulge to accommodate the reality that this ignorant geyser of hate had ascended to the world's yugest leadership position.  We're left pressing the same worn-out words into service, paradoxically reminding each other: This is not normal."
• 
"The frame we're putting around the president-elect emphasizes how freakishly outside the mainstream his views and behavior lie.  That's useful, up to a point.  But in appealing to what's typical rather than what's right or true, we're missing an opportunity to make a stronger statement.  Trump himself aims to center white men as ‘normal' and push everyone else to the periphery."
• 
Ah, now we get to the real agenda: It's racial.  It's about putting white men back in charge and the hell with everyone else.
• 
"Overall there's a creeping sense that we're stuck with Trump and we should make it ‘work' in some type of do-goody liberal appeal to patriotism.
• 
"But this is wrong, both tactically and ethically.  Trump isn't normal and he should never be treated as such, regardless of what President Obama and Clinton and Sanders say."

• 
"Trump was good for ratings ...

      City renames 2 holidays deemed culturally insensitive  (Fox 11/20/2016)
• 
The city of Bloomington, Indiana, has renamed Good Friday and Columbus Day because the names imply a cultural insensitivity.
• 
"We are terrifically proud of our diverse workforce at the city.  That diversity makes us stronger and more representative of the public we proudly serve.  These updated names for two days of well-merited time off is another way we can demonstrate our commitment to inclusivity."

... "all city employees receive paid time off for Columbus Day, a federal holiday ... and Good Friday, the Friday before Easter Sunday.  In the future, the city will be calling these paid days off 'Fall Holiday' and 'Spring Holiday.'"

"To emphasize the heroism of Columbus and his successors as navigators and discoverers, and to de-emphasize their genocide, is not a technical necessity but an ideological choice.  It serves — unwittingly — to justify what was done."

• 
"My recent Facebook comment was intended to be a joke, in the context of a larger conversation, and only privately shared as such.  Anyone who knows me, knows that I do not engage in this form of rhetoric with any level of seriousness and the comment most certainly does not represent my real personal views in any regard.  I apologize if anything that I said was either taken seriously, was offensive, or caused any legitimate concern."

Of course, while Warren — like all Clinton surrogates in the aftermath of the final debate — is behaving as if calling someone nasty is the moral equivalent of drowning puppies for fun, she had no problem using the word herself in reference to Trump.

Apparently in Warren's mind, calling Hillary Clinton a nasty woman is beyond the pale, yet calling Trump a nasty bully with a "dark and ugly" soul is just totally fine.

      FBI docs claim Clinton took furniture from State  (Fox 10/18/2016)
• 
FBI documents released Monday include an allegation that Hillary Clinton took lamps and furniture from her State Department office for her home in Washington, D.C., echoing a similar controversy that dogged the Clintons in 2001 — but the State Department says the furniture always belonged to Clinton.
• 
"Early in Clinton's tenure as secretary of state, she and her staff were observed removing lamps and furniture from the State Department which were transported to her residence in Washington, D.C.."
• 
"[The agent] does not know whether these items were ever returned to the government upon Clinton's departure from the State Department."
• 
"As I understand, those were her personal belongings she brought from home to decorate her offices and then took them back again."
• 
The claim, however disputed, has echoes of a similar controversy that dogged the Clintons when they left the White House in 2001 and took $190,000 worth of gifts with them.
• 
Some who gave the gifts said they were intended for the White House, including $28,000 of gifts given to the National Park Service for the White House's personal collection.
• 
The flap eventually led to the Clintons returning $28,000 in gifts and paying for $86,000 of gifts themselves.

      Trash talk and the White House  (JWR 10/14/2016)
• 
The first lady, who for eight years has transformed the White House into the last surviving vaudeville venue (who needs Mozart when you might get Kanye West), revealed herself to be almost terminally offended by Donald Trump.
• 
"I can't believe that I'm saying that, a candidate for president of the United States has bragged about sexually assaulting women."
• 
"...  This was a powerful individual speaking freely and openly about predatory behavior, and actually bragging about kissing and groping women, using language so obscene that many of us were worried about our children hearing it when we turn on the TV."
• 
Michelle Obama is right to be concerned, though she shouldn't worry about what her daughters, lovely girls that they are, have heard at the most expensive private school in the nation's capital.
• 
The children of America, if they watch television, indulge the Internet, or listen to rap music they'll hear things that would make the Donald's ears burn.
• 
To protect her children she must keep them upstairs in the family quarters, and away from some of the Hollywood stuff she and the mister frequently have in to entertain their guests.
• 
Some of the rappers who perform in the house once occupied by Lincoln and Adams, Jefferson, Jackson and FDR, spin rhymes about their bitches and their ho's, the thrill of killing cops and bringing down all manner of bad things on America.
• 
Trashy behavior is not only invited into the White House, but the first lady's husband has bestowed honors on some of those who have tracked trash into the house.
• 
Neither should the first lady allow the girls to watch the video of Dad on his campaign plane, where he once displayed an erection through his pants to tempt and tease the lady reporters in the front seats.
• 
The locker rooms of the NBA are where only the thoughtful and erudite wisdom of champions can be heard, and there's never a harsh or naughty word to disturb those reading quietly from their Gideon Bibles.

• 
That will be reassuring to the baby mamas of the men in the NBA locker rooms, some of whom have not one, or two, or three or even four different baby mamas, but more, and eight or nine kids.
• 
Michelle, of course, is not responsible for what her husband does when she's not there to keep him in line when young ladies are present, any more than Hillary is in charge of Bubba's zipper.
• 
But Hillary is responsible for the character assassinations she instigated and supervised of the women Bubba abused
• 
Michelle is responsible for the speeches she makes, exonerating the high crimes and misdemeanors of those who throw sticks and stones at Donald Trump, who has done no more than certain high Democrats of her acquaintance.
• 
It's wrong when the Donald does it, and wrong when Democrats do it.

• 
... while Thomas has broken barriers his entire professional life without seeking the limelight, the 68-year-old justice is being conspicuously ignored by a powerful new showplace for black heritage.
• 
"Justice Thomas is the longest-serving black justice in our history, he's amassed over 500 opinions."
• 
"And yet you would learn nothing of that in this museum, and that's a shame."
• 
The museum panel has a picture of Hill speaking, with the caption, "Her testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee provoked serious debates on sexual harassment, race loyalty, and gender roles."
• 
The exhibit also includes a pink button from the era: "I believe Anita Hill."
• 
But it contains no pictures, quotes or memorabilia from the justice himself.

"Clarence Thomas has his own views — that's his sin.  He believes in individual rights, not group rights.  That's led him to oppose racial preferences, and for that he's banished" at the museum.
      Heather MacDonald: The left freaks out over Trump's tape but loves culturally lewd behavior  (Fox 10/09/2016)

The response has been swift and apocalyptic.  Hillary Clinton tweeted: "This is horrific.  We cannot allow this man to become president."
• 
Vice Presidential candidate Tim Kaine told reporters: "It makes me sick to my stomach."
• 
Slate's science editor wrote that "I feel sicker after seeing it than I can remember feeling in a while."
• 
Another Slate columnist writes that Trump and Bush "can't see their female colleagues as anything but collections of f**kable or unf**kable body parts.  They exhibit a complete disregard for women's humanity, agency, and internal lives."
• 
Surely the ravenous purchase by females of stiletto heels, push-up bras, butt-hugging mini-skirts, plunging necklines, false eyelashes, hair extensions, breast implants, butt implants, lip implants, and mascara, rouge, and lipstick to the tune of billions a year has nothing to do with it.
• 
Females would never ever exploit their sexuality to seek attention from men.
• 
How surprising that Trump and Bush noticed Zucker's legs!  As documented in the video, she is wearing a skimpy purple dress, with an extremely short hem cut on the bias, a low neckline and fully exposed back.  She is in high heels to accentuate her bare legs.
• 
But all that bare flesh must simply be because Zucker has a high metabolism and gets exceedingly warm; she would never want to broadcast her sexuality to men or have men notice her.
• 
The fact that she swishes her hips when she walks must just be a quirk of anatomy.
• 
Beyonce and her female chorus line rhythmically thrust their butts, crotches, and breasts to the camera, while Beyonce brags of her sexual prowess.
• 
The "Formation" video, which inspired Beyonce's Super Bowl halftime performance in January (to another universal swoon from the entertainment industry), also shows a very young girl engaging in some precocious twerking, a grotesque travesty of childhood.
• 
No objections to that destruction of the innocence of childhood from the DNC.
• 
President Obama has singled out Beyonce for praise, and the singer is a big Hillary Clinton supporter, to not a word of protest from Clinton regarding her status as a role model for young girls.
• 
Bill Clinton met with Beyonce and her husband, rapper Jay Z, in September.  If Bill or Hillary thinks the lyrics of Jay Z's "Big Pimpin‘" "horrific," in Hillary's words, they are not letting on.
• 
The Washington Post primly headlined its scoop on Trump's bus conversation with Bush: "Trump recorded having extremely lewd conversation about women in 2005."
• 
The New York Times' follow-up story also labelled Trump's remarks "lewd."
• 
If either of those paper's critics have ever objected to such lewdness in popular culture, it has escaped attention.
• 
Have they objected to college campus sex weeks, which routinely invite porn stars to offer how-to demonstrations on S & M sex?
• 
Do they squirm with discomfort when campus administrators pass out tips on the use of sex toys to achieve better orgasms?  Not on the record, at least.
• 
Other Hillary Clinton supporters have hardly been shy about exploiting sex to get ahead. 
• 
"I have used sex as a marketing tool and it has worked.  I mean, my TV show is called ‘Inside Amy Schumer.'"

This blushing Victorian violet explains: "My whole life I found friends that are just like me, young girls that were just like me, like we were all whores."
• 
"My best friend would describe me as loyal ... to the boyfriend I stole from her."
• 
Democratic National Convention star, Hillary fan and "Girls" creator Lena Dunham has not exactly set herself up as a model of sexual prudence, either, nor has she shrunk from using her promiscuity as a selling point in the entertainment market.
• 
The sudden onset of Victorian vapors among the liberal intelligentsia and political class at the revelation of Trump's locker-room talk is part and parcel of the left's hypocrisy when it comes to feminism and sexual liberation.
• 
But the feminists can't have it both ways: declaring that women should be equal to men in all things and then still demand a chivalric deference to female's delicate sensibilities.
• 
It is particularly galling to see the selective resurrection of Victorian values from the same crowd that has been pushing transgender locker rooms on the world, in an effort to destroy the last shred of girls' innate sexual modesty.
• 
Needless to say, actual sexual assault is both criminal and intolerable.
• 
... college co-eds insist on the prerogative of maximal promiscuity at the same time that they revert to the role of helpless damsel in distress, when, after drinking themselves blotto to lower their sexual inhibitions, they regret a boozy hook-up and declare themselves raped.
• 
... Democrats are the most shameless in their outrage over the Trump braggadocio, having dismissed Bill Clinton's White House and gubernatorial escapades for years, and standing as the party of maximal sexual liberation, unlike the Republicans.
• 
Feminism ... has declared both modesty and chivalry sexist, leaving females to improvise a response to the inevitable excesses of the male sex drive, when they are not trying to leverage it to their own advantage.

The Huffington Post recently published a story from their Black Voices Senior Editor?saying the following: "Black Lives Matter (BLM) wasn't built to incite any form of violence against police.  In fact, it's one of the dangerous misconceptions about the movement the group has sought to debunk."
• 
Perhaps this Huffington Post editor missed the videos of BLM protestors in St.  Paul, Minnesota, shouting, "Pigs in a blanket, fry 'em like bacon." Or others marching in New York City chanting, "What do we want?  Dead cops.  When do we want them?  Now!"

In many of the same cities where protesters lined up to defame, curse or threaten police while exercising the very First Amendment rights their victims are sent to protect, law abiding citizens are begging for police patrols to return in force where the thugs now rule.

• 
When future generations read about the "Great Gender Pronoun Wars" of the early twenty-first century, they will most certainly learn of Grant Strobl – a noble and mighty king.
• 
"His Majesty" is an unlikely title for a 21-year-old political science major from Grosse Pointe, Michigan.
• 
In less than 24-hours, the brave conservative single-handedly defeated an army of gender neutral activists at the University of Michigan.
• 
Think David versus a gender confused Goliath.
• 
The University of Michigan recently announced a new initiative to allow students to select their preferred gender pronouns through an online service.
• 
It was designed as a way to help professors tell the difference between the guys and the gals and the zi's and the zir's.
• 
"Asking about and correctly using someone's designated pronoun is one of the most basic ways to show your respect for their identity and to cultivate an environment that respects all gender identities."
• 
The university actually created a "pronoun committee" to ensure that faculty members "play a vital role in ensuring all of our community feels valued, respected and included."
•

• 
"None of them are recognized in the English language.  Everything is completely arbitrary now.  You can identify as anything you want."
• 
"I thought it was definitely fitting to point out how absurd this new policy is by choosing ‘His Majesty,'" His Majesty said.
• 
"It's a recognized honorific and it is definitely absurd for anybody to be called ‘His Majesty' in America."
• 
"As a Christian, I believe that all lives are valuable."
• 
But the university's young ruler is concerned that professors might be punished if they refuse to identify a student by their preferred gender pronoun.
• 
"Once we go down that road, it's very dangerous for our society and our democracy."

"If they want me to be tolerant of their pronouns, they have to be tolerant to my new title," His Majesty said.

"Many of the students on campus who call for diversity – they only want diversity for ideas they agree with."

The University of Michigan yesterday unveiled a new webpage that allows students to choose their preferred pronouns, including "they" and "ze."

Preferred pronouns will appear on class rosters, and if professors accidentally use the wrong pronoun, "you can acknowledge that you made a mistake and use the correct pronoun next time."

It also called using preferred pronouns "one of the most basic ways to show your respect for their identity and to cultivate an environment that respects all gender identities."

Monday night's presidential debate at Hofstra University covered a wide range of topics except the most important one of all — how our country is swiftly becoming a decadent society that is undermining traditional American values.

• 
Instead of parsing participles, a public high school English teacher has been using her classroom to wage an ugly propaganda campaign against Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump and his supporters.
• 
"Basically, the only people who seem to be safe from this guy are white Christian males," the teacher said in a classroom discussion recorded by a student.
• 
"Am I missing anything?  Oh, American – white, Christian, male Americans."
• 
The Trump-bashing came during a lesson on ethos and pathos.
• 
"He is in fact the master of pathos," the teacher told students.  "So who knows what his actual motives are but he is a master at manipulating his audience, right?  He knows where the fears lie and he is going right after them."
• 
She went on to accuse the GOP nominee of "poking the fryers under particular niches of people in this country — people who are anti-Mexican, people who are anti-Muslim, people who are anti-woman."

Parents told me the teacher has been bashing Trump for quite some time and that's why students decided to secretly record her lessons.

"Most conservative parents don't want to fight the system because they know they are going to be shouted down."

      Watchdog: Feds wrongly granted citizenship to hundreds facing deportation  (Fox 09/19/2016)
• 
More than 800 illegal immigrants from countries of concern who were set for deportation were mistakenly granted U.S.  citizenship because the Department of Homeland Security didn't have their fingerprints on file.
• 
In the case of 858 immigrants from "special interest countries or neighboring countries with high rates of immigration fraud," the discrepancies weren't caught because their fingerprints were missing from government databases. 
• 
A few even managed to get aviation or transportation worker credentials, though they were later revoked.  One became a law enforcement officer. 
• 
The report warned that when immigrants become naturalized, "these individuals retain many of the rights and privileges of U.S.  citizenship, including serving in law enforcement, obtaining a security clearance, and sponsoring other aliens' entry into the United States."
• 
According to the audit, as of November 2015, the administration has found 953 more "who had final deportation orders under another identity and had been naturalized," some of whom were from countries of concern.
• 
"This situation created opportunities for individuals to gain the rights and privileges of U.S.  citizenship through fraud."
• 
Mistakenly awarding citizenship to someone ordered deported can have serious consequences because U.S.  citizens can typically apply for and receive security clearances or take security-sensitive jobs.

Princeton, that once great school whose purpose at its founding in 1746 was to train ministers and whose motto remains Dei Sub Numine Viget (Under God's Power She Flourishes), has, like other schools of "higher" learning, jumped into the deep end of the pool of political correctness.

      College Campus Lunacy  (JWR 08/24/2016)
• 
As the fall semester begins, parents, students, taxpayers and donors should be made aware of official college practices that should disgust us all.
• 
Hampshire College will offer some of its students what the school euphemistically calls "identity-based housing."
• 
That's segregated housing for students who — because of their race, culture, gender or sexual orientation — have "historically experienced oppression."
• 
The college defended racially segregated classes by saying that they make students "feel comfortable."
• 
For professors to use their classes to proselytize students — and for a college president to urge it — is gross academic dishonesty.
• 
Adding to campus lunacy are classes such as "Lady Gaga and the Sociology of the Fame" at the University of South Carolina.
• 
Cornell University's physical education department offers a class titled "Recreational Tree Climbing."
• 
Skidmore College's sociology department offers "The Sociology of Miley Cyrus: Race, Class, Gender and Media."
• 
Frostburg State University's physics department offers "The Science of Harry Potter," where it examines some of the tale's magic.
• 
Georgetown University offers "Philosophy and Star Trek," arguing that "Star Trek is very philosophical" and adding, "What better way, then, to learn philosophy, than to watch Star Trek, read philosophy, and hash it all out in class?"
• 
... such academic nonsense may indeed reflect that presidents, academic administrators, faculty members and students actually believe that such classes have academic merit.

If the progressive academic radicals at Princeton University have their way, the New Jersey school will soon be "man-free."

The Planning Board and many residents say they were concerned about traffic and other zoning issues, but the lawsuit accuses town officials of violating the Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act (RLUIPA), which gives religious institutions flexibility when it comes to zoning law restrictions on property use.
