"Security" is the New "Shut Up" (Again)
Steyn Online, by Mark Steyn

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 4/21/2017 9:35:27 AM

On Thursday night, Mark joined Tucker Carlson at Fox News to discuss the ever more open hostility to right-leaning speakers at American campuses: Berkeley recently reversed its cancellation of conservative author Ann Coulter´s speech, but moved it to another date and time. Its chancellor, Nicholas Dirks, said he was "gravely concerned" by Coulter´s announcement she would show up on campus even after the cancellation, threatening "safety" precautions. Steyn called Dirks´ response a "creepy, weasely and evasive speech"... He said colleges like Berkeley now simply claim there are security concerns when a conservative speaker appears, but will not take action against violent rioters that

Comments:
These are two of my favorite men on TV. Mark Steyn is so clever, intelligent and profound. I love listening to him.

Americans are mostly scardycats. They are willing to surrender their liberties for security because some politician they like says they will be protected, and it´s necessary to be monitored or muzzled, or otherwise restricted in activity.

After 9/11 Americans left the gate wide open, and most of the horses are gone - we´re all being monitored, some more actively than others, and all that data is dumped in the government´s memory banks out in the desert. This "security" is supposed to make us safer...like the war on drugs is supposed to end that social and physical scourge.

We now find the "trusted" intel apparatus is being used against politicians by politicians. Against private citizens, too. But you have nothing to hide, do you? The Constitution will protect you, right?

Feel safe yet?

Rioting is not ´speech´.
These people should be jailed and then Berkeley won´t have to worry about ´security´.

Ann was right. Expel students who riot. Period.

If they expelled all who riot in Berkeley, California might avoid bankruptcy since nearly all students are on ´´scholarship.´´

How many of these masked people are the sons of wealthy white men, acting out their white guilt?

My guess is ~90%. If otherwise, they could always show up as a member, or an "ally" of BLM or the p#$%^-hats or somesuch.

In order to overcome the "privilege," they´re going to extremes to show they´re down with the Cause.

These are the tactics of totalitarian fascists leftists. It has been for about 100 years. Safety! Safety! "You can´t (insert reason here) because of public safety."

The fact of the matter is that they allow the violence so that they can suppress the voices of reason. If a leftist speaks, then there is hell to pay for any protesters from the right. They incite violence, then blame the victims for the incitement.

These are dangerous times for free speech and thought.

Keith Ellison Blames Obama
For Democratic Failures
Townhall, by Leah Barkoukis    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/22/2017 9:07:13     Post Reply
Rep. Keith Ellison did not shy away from placing the blame on former President Obama for the Democratic Party’s recent losses. At a University of Minnesota event Wednesday, moderator Rachel Stassen-Berger asked Ellison if he thought the former president “was responsible for some of the failures of 2016.” “Yeah, he was,” Ellison replied. While he noted that he is supportive of Obama and many of his policies, he acknowledged he “could have been a better party leader” –and that, he said, has “put his legacy in jeopardy.” “Your legacy is not a building that he’s going to construct in Chicago housing his presidential papers,”

California officials reacted with defiance Friday to a threat by federal officials to withhold some $20 million in criminal justice grants from the state and its counties as part of the dispute over so-called sanctuary city policies. “It has become abundantly clear that Atty. Gen. [Jeff] Sessions and the Trump administration are basing their law enforcement policies on principles of white supremacy — not American values,” Senate leader Kevin de León (D-Los Angeles) said in a statement. “Their constant and systematic targeting of diverse cities and states goes beyond constitutional norms and will be challenged at every level.” De León’s

Months before Donald Trump blew up American politics with his surprise win in November, he did the same thing to the conservative media. Through much of the campaign, two very different media moguls with colliding visions for the Republican Party vied for Trump’s soul: Roger Ailes, the longtime president and CEO of Fox News, and Steve Bannon, the executive chairman of the populist online tabloid Breitbart. Both were angling to be the media Svengali whispering in Trump’s ear. At one point, it seemed they might have been allies: Bannon worked to insinuate himself at Fox, and Ailes’ network aired some

2nd doctor, wife arrested
in genital mutilation case
Detroit News [MI], by Robert Snell    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/21/2017 7:49:59     Post Reply
Federal agents arrested a second doctor and his wife Friday in a widening conspiracy involving female genital mutilation and members of a Muslim sect. Dr. Fakhruddin Attar is accused of letting Dr. Jumana Nagarwala perform mutilations at his Burhani Medical Clinic on Farmington Road. His wife, office manager Farida Attar, also was arrested and is accused of helping Nagarwala perform the mutilations, according to a 14-page complaint unsealed Friday in federal court. The arrests are the latest development in the nation’s first female genital mutilation case, which is providing insight into a small, insular Muslim community in Metro Detroit and

Sources: Russia tried to use Trump

Washington The FBI gathered intelligence last summer that suggests Russian operatives tried to use Trump advisers, including Carter Page, to infiltrate the Trump campaign, according to US officials. The new information adds to the emerging picture of how the Russians tried to influence the 2016 election, not only through email hacks and propaganda but also by trying to infiltrate the Trump orbit. The intelligence led to an investigation into the coordination of Trump´s campaign associates and the Russians. These officials made clear they don´t know whether Page was aware the Russians may have been using him. Because of the way

Please, God, Stop Chelsea Clinton
From Whatever She Is Doing

Amid investigations into Russian election interference, perhaps we ought to consider whether the Kremlin, to hurt Democrats, helped put Chelsea Clinton on the cover of Variety. Or maybe superstition explains it. Like tribesmen laying out a sacrifice to placate King Kong, news outlets continue to make offerings to the Clinton gods. (Snip) One wishes to calm these publications: You can stop this now. Haven’t you heard that the great Kong is no more? Nevertheless, they’ve persisted. At great cost: increased Chelsea exposure is tied closely to political despair and, in especially intense cases, the bulk purchasing of MAGA hats. So

Steel yourselves. Barack Obama’s about to emerge from the shadows — and first stop, University of Chicago. Why there? No doubt, it’s one of the more receptive breeding grounds for his particular brand of activism — the activism he’ll be touting to malleable student-age minds while engaging in, as his people called it, a “conversation about community organizing and civic engagement.” Make no mistake about it. This is about teaching the upcoming generation, loud as it already is about all topics that offend, to get even louder, even Leftist Prouder, and to — here’s the gist — use that Leftist

A growing number of conservative commentators are calling on President Donald Trump to use the California National Guard to escort author Ann Coulter onto the University of California, Berkeley campus when she speaks next week. Though California Governor Jerry Brown commands the California National Guard, President Trump has the power to federalize it — just as President Dwight D. Eisenhower federalized the Arkansas National Guard in 1957 to integrate public schools. (The same Arkansas troops who had once blocked black students then escorted the students to school.) Coulter was invited by the Berkeley College Republicans to speak on April 27. When Berkeley

The black supremacist who murdered four white men in Fresno, Calif. this week laughed during his police interview about the slayings, Fresno’s police chief says. “When he spoke about the shootings, he did so in a very callous manner,” Chief Jerry Dyer said in a press conference Wednesday of Kori Ali Muhammad, the 39-year-old killer. “In fact, multiple times he laughed as he described what transpired.” Muhammad killed three white men in downtown Fresno on Tuesday. His first victim that day was Zackary Randalls. Muhammad shot the 34-year-old while he was sitting in his work truck. Muhammad then shot Mark

Donald Trump has a “dangerous mental illness” and is not fit to lead the US, a group of psychiatrists has warned during a conference at Yale University. Mental health experts claimed the President was “paranoid and delusional”, and said it was their “ethical responsibility” to warn the American public about the “dangers” Mr Trump’s psychological state poses to the country.

The Obamas have been taking a much-deserved break from politics since moving out of the White House. But next week, it´s back to reality. President Barack Obama will be in Chicago on Monday to discuss community organization and civic engagement. As we all know, the Obamas have impeccable taste in food, so it wouldn´t be surprising to see the former president surveying the Chicago dining scene when he returns stateside. Will he visit the renowned Alinea? Or return to an old Obama favorite, Spiaggia?

A Chicago artist has finished his mural of Michelle Obama in a colorful image that features the former first lady as an Egyptian queen. The painting by artist Chris Devins was completed Friday on the southeast corner of Chappel Avenue and 74th Street in South Shore. That´s two blocks from the former first lady´s childhood home at 7436 S. Euclid Ave. and across the street from Bouchet Elementary, which she attended when it was known as Bryn Mawr School. "I wanted to present her as what I think she is, so she´s clothed as an Egyptian queen. I thought that was appropriate,"

The student government at Western Kentucky University on Tuesday voted in favor of giving free tuition to black students. The school’s Student Government Associationpassed a resolution by 19-10 supporting slavery reparations for black students in the form of free tuition and free access to the public Bowling Green campus. The resolution also recommends that the university create a task force to “assess the feasibility of test-optional admissions and geographically-weighted admissions,” claiming that some standardized testing poses a disadvantage for needy students and perpetuates inequality and “white supremacy,” The Bowling Green Daily News reported. “We demand reparations for the systemic denial of access to

Outraged Muslims are reportedly planning a May 1 demonstration at the Amazon headquarters in Seattle, Washington. The company is under fire after several Muslim security guards demanded time and space to pray five times a day, while on the job. The guards contend in a lawsuit filed this week that the subcontractor who employs them does not appropriately accommodate their faith and retaliates against those who speak out. The Service Employees International Union and the guards allege that Amazon grants high-earning tech workers conference rooms to pray in, but they do not provide the same accommodation for contracted security officers

By his twenties, Kyle Kaylor imagined he would be living on his own, nearing a college degree, and on his way to a job that fulfilled him. Instead, at 21, he found himself out of school, living with his parents, and "stuck" working as a manager at a fast food restaurant scraping to make hand-to-mouth. Launching into adulthood has been tricky, he said. "It became too difficult financially to be in school and not working," says Kaylor, who dropped out of Lincoln Christian University, in Illinois, after one semester because of a money crunch.

Former President Barack Obama will make his first public appearance Monday, hosting an event on civic engagement on his old stomping grounds at the University of Chicago. The event, open to the public but with limited tickets, will bring together younger leaders and students “for a conversation on community organizing and civic engagement.” It won’t be an explicitly political event. As an Illinois state senator, Obama once represented the neighborhood where the campus is located and also was a law professor at the university. He last stopped by the campus in 2016, using an event at the law school to make a
