The Jury in the Gibson’s Bakery v. Oberlin College case has reached a verdict. According to our reporter in the Courtroom, the jury awarded $11 million. Here are the details: Allyn W. Gibson awarded $5.8 million, David Gibson #3 million, Gibson Bros. $2,274,500. Next Tuesday there will be a separate punitive damages which could be a double award (meaning tripling the $11 million to $33 million). According to Dan, Meredith Raimondo was held liable on the libel but not the other counts. We are still sorting out what that means in terms of damages against her.

Sweet news. Pushback to the snotty, entitled brats who have no idea what how their protests affects normal, working folk, or they don’t care. And for the colleges which indulge their privileged students’ behavior.

Good luck collecting, but I think even for Gibson's the money wasn't really the point. Then again, COLLECT if you can.

If the college appeals, they may have to post a bond for 1.5 times the award and if it is upheld, the award is paid at that amount. Bonding companies take 100% collateral for this. They need to come up with the money.

It'll be a hoot if you were an Oberlin College alum getting a fund raising letter email from the College. "Please help us cover our stupidity and $11-33 million plus legal fees loss to Gibson's Bakery! Top donors will be invited to the ceremony where the College President signs and delivers the check."

I like the verdict - and again, I cautioned those who believed a jury would favor the college. Mos townspeople i9n college towns are not terribly sympathetic to crazy student affairs directors and spoiled brat students. And they are not too crazy about black students who use the cover of their skin color to shoplift. This is a common problem.

Download the article. Everything you need to know about Oberlin’s malicious, now expensive, behavior against this family bakery. This is a happy day for those of us who are up to here with scabpicking political correctness. Black students do shoplift. Blacks shoplift. Deal with it.

that college is so liberal! I would not send my kids there. I refused to help with any loans if they chose that joint. I am glad the bakery won. I am sick of all this racist crap. Shoplifting is a crime. no matter what color the person is. And why the "day after election of Donald Trump," what does that have to do with the shoplifting.

Looking at the comments after the article, someone links to a letter from Oberlin College to Students. (I'm not sure that i should link to that here, sorry) It claims that the college will experience a $4.7 million dollar shortfall for the coming year. However!! Within that letter is a reference to this little tid-bit: . . . Oberlin’s roughly $870 million endowment. I think there are ways that Oberlin can pay up.

You can order from Gibson’s online. A couple of weeks ago I ordered chocolate covered cashews and chocolate covered candied ginger. Expensive but both are awesome. I did it just to support them but was thrilled with the products and will be ordering more. Congratulations, Gibsons!

The bakery isn't shipping anything chocolate during the summer. You have to order their butter cookies or buy a $30 shirt. I am happy for the Gibson Family. They have been maligned by the college over and over again. The letter sent by the college to the "Oberlin Community" shows their continued arrogance. The writer of the column says - I wonder if this statement can be used against the college in the punitive damage phase. They have learned nothing, and still are blaming the Gibsons for this.

The college houses and protects shoplifting thugs. A store prosecutes the thugs and the college community attacks them for their audacity and the leadership of the college took little or no action to stop them. In fact the college in the personahe of Meredith Raimondo seems to think the Bakery should be slapped down by "unleashing the students". Real justice for real people.

The Oberlin student's who cheered on the demise of Gibson's Bakery should be careful for what they wish. Some of them may someday own a business of their own and be sued for something equally frivolous. What comes around goes around.

$11 to $33 million is enough to shut down the present business and move to a more accommodating area, which will also deprive the SJWs of great tasting goodies!

What's the school worth? That is the amount for Punitive Damages! Now every student must sit through 6 hours a day of Conservative Thought! It would be Glorious! Non-Entitled little snowflakes need to be pushed out of the public debate and sent to their rooms with no food or internet or phone! Has anyone else noticed GenX guys that are College age? They stand in this strange position holding hands palm up and fingers half curled. I've been puzzled for months by it but have now figured out it's from holding a cell phone all day, everyday. It is a terrible look of a weeny! Plus they have a forward slant to their necks which will be very ugly by old age!

Wonderful news. Places of “higher learning” and their usually “liberal” operators have given themselves credit for far greater worth than they deserve. Perhaps their actual worth is becoming, or has become, a negative value.

Failed Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton claimed Saturday that one “cannot read” special counsel Robert Mueller’s report without concluding that President Donald Trump committed obstruction of justice. “You cannot read the report, chapter and verse, fact after fact, without reaching those conclusions,” Clinton then stated the American public is expecting fatigue with respect to the media’s insistent covering of the special counsel’s findings and want to get on with their “normal lives.” “People just want to quit hearing about it and get back to their normal lives. There is nothing normal about undermining the rule of law,” she said, per the Associated Press. “There is nothing normal about attacking the press.

This summer, PBS Kids premiered an episode of the children's show Arthur in which a teacher, Mr. Ratburn, "marries" another male character. Even before this premiere, PBS was already infusing the LGBT agenda into its programming. In between its shows, a happy song about families included an image of two dads with a baby and lyrics to that effect. Disney and other children's stations long ago jumped onto the LGBT bandwagon with their line-up. As a Guardian headline noted in 2016, "From Nickelodeon to Disney: Children's TV leads the way for LGBT characters," with same-sex unions featuring prominently in shows. It is not just television,
Mexico Agreed to Take Border Actions Months Before Trump Announced Tariff Deal 28 replies

The deal to avert tariffs that President Trump announced with great fanfare on Friday night consists largely of actions that Mexico had already promised to take in prior discussions with the United States over the past several months, according to officials from both countries who are familiar with the negotiations. Friday’s joint declaration says Mexico agreed to the “deployment of its National Guard throughout Mexico, giving priority to its southern border.” But the Mexican government had already pledged to do that in March during secret talks in Miami between Kirstjen Nielsen, then the secretary of homeland security, and Olga Sanchez, the Mexican secretary of the interior, the officials said.

There are a lot of things about the way Oberlin College handled the Gibson’s Bakery dispute and lawsuit that have had me wondering who, if anyone, is in control over there.(Snip) In this context, there is nothing more baffling than a statement sent to alumni after the verdict by Donica Thomas Varner, Oberlin College’s Vice President and General Counsel. The statement was contained in a mass email sent to alumni (and possibly others) criticizing the jury verdict and repeating the same stale defenses that failed at trial (emphasis added):(Snip) Procedurally, the email is baffling because the trial is not over.

Stacey Abrams’s refusal to lose the Georgia gubernatorial election graciously was one of the low points of the 2018 midterms. But her insistence that Brian Kemp and the Republicans stole the election from her has now become an article of faith among Democrats. Democratic presidential contenders who traveled to Atlanta this week to speak to the African-American Leadership Council repeated the claim, which Abrams has made more than a dozen times since she lost to Kemp by 54,723 votes last November. In rote fashion, they repeated Abrams’s charges that the outcome was determined by “voter suppression” conducted by Kemp, who

Lake Erie and Lake Superior — two of the five that make up the Great Lakes — broke records for water levels this May. Lakes Michigan and Huron could follow suit. Naturally, climate change is getting the blame. “We are undoubtedly observing the effects of a warming climate in the Great Lakes,” says Richard Rood, a University of Michigan climate scientist. But just a few years ago, climate scientists were insisting that a warming climate would cause water levels to decline. In 2008, Science Daily reported on a study that attributed the decline in Great Lakes water levels to global warming.

Occasionally, when the time is right and fewer people are watching, Fox News tosses a few Donald Trump critics into the mix. They generally receive airtime in the middle of the day—where the more moderate hosts Shep Smith and Bret Baier hold court—before the party line is reestablished by the Trump liege men of primetime (Laura Ingraham, Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity). And then there is Judge Andrew Napolitano, the Libertarian Party voter and legal commentator, who seems to be disappearing from Fox News altogether as he’s grown more and more critical of the Trump administration and its treatment of the Mueller report. Fox News hasn’t dispatched with Napolitano altogether, of course

Twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton believes President Trump's administration is a gateway to fascism. "The idea that it can't happen here is just old-fashioned, my friends,” the former secretary of state warned this weekend during an address at Wellesley College. Her remarks came with a specific reference to former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright's new book, Fascism: A Warning. How seriously should we take any “warning” written by a former secretary of state who mocked 2012 Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney when he cautioned about the growing Russian threat? I am going to say not much.

Well, now it looks like we have a gay flag controversy, something Democrats are sure to make a 2020 campaign issue and the press reporting the whole thing is being done to be mean.According to the Washington Examiner: The State Department has rejected at least four requests from different U.S. embassies to fly LGBTQ pride flags during the month of June. U.S. embassies in Israel, Germany, Brazil, and Latvia have each made requests to fly rainbow flags on the embassy’s flag pole, and the Trump administration has rejected each request, according to NBC News. Pride flags are still allowed to be displayed elsewhere in each facility.

In its new crusade for veganism, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) has rushed to the defense of oysters and other bivalves, insisting they should be respected and never eaten. “Oysters are never vegan,” PETA announced in a short video presentation on Twitter Saturday. “Bivalves are animals that deserve our consideration and should never be eaten or used in any other way.” In its attempt to tug at the heartstrings of possible sympathizers, PETA underscored the cruelty with which oysters are treated just to feed undeserving human beings. “Their shells are torn open and their bodies are cut up,” the video proclaimed.
