Cornell University law professor William Jacobson thought he had grown callous to petitions for his ouster. Activists—including students, faculty, and alumni—have called for his firing on numerous occasions since he launched the popular conservative website Legal Insurrection in 2008, but the campaign against him has taken personal attacks to new levels in the wake of George Floyd's death in police custody."On [the Black Lives Matter] issue, you cannot deviate one iota or they will try to get you kicked out of the school, they will falsely accuse you of being racist, they will do a ‘name and shame' campaign against you," Jacobson told the Washington Free Beacon.

I’ve thought for years that we need to do something about our (gag) institutions of higher learning. David Horowitz has warned for decades about what’s going on in our colleges and no one has paid any attention. Now we see those ghastly chickens coming home to roost. Why can’t those communist professors be arrested and tried for sedition or fomenting insurrection or something? Free speech my rear end! Those people are enemies of America and judging by the civil misery going on right now, they’re quite successful.

Would any sane parent work hard to send their child to the worst urban High School? Of course not, yet millions of parents do the same thing by sending their children to colleges for a worthless degree and a heavy brainwashing. Most High School grads should actually work for a year after High School and discover the reality of being independent in the real world. It would be a shock and a real education for many of them. Even if they traveled for a year, it would be money better spent than a year of tuition for a career they chose from a rack of pamphlets at their High School guidance counselors office. There are plenty of jobs, IF a person looks for them and isn't a walking freak show. They aren't good jobs, but any job is far more instructive and more importantly forces the employee to be honest with themselves about their life ambition, how hard they are willing to work for that and what they intend to do with their life. None of that happens when you are partying at a college. Doing mostly High School level 'work' for some degree that usually has no sure job waiting after amassing a mountain of debt. There are exceptions and some careers require a lot of prep that 4 years of college can provide. Those people are self motivated to get good grades and into the field they are passionate about. There are masses of drifters who have no idea what that feels like. For them acting like a pious insane vandal, passes for being a good 'student.' At least to some of their peers and the filthy communists that are dug in the faculty.

These students getting degrees in Social Justice and wracking up $50k+ in student loans are ripe for the picking for the Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warrens of the world who promise to write off all that debt.

President Trump wants to cut US troops in Germany by 9,500 bringing the number down to — 25,000! Why America needs 35,000 US troops in Germany today is anybody’s guess. Of course, the same Pentagon Generals who are against sending troops into to US cities where leftist looters and rioters destroyed 1,500 buildings and businesses are against this idea. The BBC reported on the cuts. Rumours of cuts were reported earlier this month by US media, amid rising tensions with its allies in the Europe’s North Atlantic Treaty Organisation

In the face of recent announcements from companies dropping their ads from his show, Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson was unfazed by the liberal thought police as he delivered a 17-minute-plus opening monologue Monday night speaking truth to the power of the Black Lives Matter movement. He called out their bullying tactics, manipulation of our moral values, and the brutalization of anyone who even offered mild criticism of the group.At one point, speaking about the normal rules of our political system, Carlson noted that “Black Lives Matter wants to run the country, therefore, you can freely criticize Black Lives Matter.” “If the leaders of Black Lives Matter are political actors,

The final stage of the election campaign and its result will depend on four factors: management of the balance between demand for police reform and concern for the maintenance of public order; whether there is a significant revival of COVID-19; the swiftness of the economic recovery; and the resolution of questions about Joe Biden’s apparent capacity to serve as president. Hovering above the campaign will be the question of indictments from U.S. Attorney John Durham’s special counsel investigation. On all that has been revealed, crimes will be charged, and Attorney General William Barr confirmed last week that those whose conduct is likely to be judged controversial will be “familiar” names.

Facts: America is accused of racism, of holding racial minorities back by way of system-wide white supremacism, and yet Jews, black Nigerians, Indian Americans (from India), and Asians are more successful in America than whites, and their respective imprison rates are lower than whites.How is it possible in a country that we’re told is riddled with the cancer of white supremacism for those four groups to enjoy a higher standard of living and more success than their all-powerful, white oppressors? The asking of the question answers the question.

When it comes to Black Lives Matter protests, the liberal media continues to sell the American people on the lofty ideas of racial equality while vilifying police officers on the front lines of the cultural rot seen in urban America.Officers put their lives on the line to ensure law and order every time they put on the uniform, but that risk has gone up exponentially after the violent BLM riots over the past two weeks.Cops have been attacked, shot and stabbed, and the attacks continue to this day — even as the media pushes a “peaceful protesters” narrative.

The world has united in protest after a graphic video emerged showing a Black man dying under the restraint of a White police officer. (Snip)The video is unquestionably horrific. But in our rush to condemn an aggressive use of force and pursue justice for George Floyd, we have ignored crucial information which is necessary in judging the conduct of the officers.(Snip)There are six crucial pieces of information — six facts — that have been largely omitted from discussion on the Chauvin’s conduct. Taken together, they likely exonerate the officer of a murder charge. Rather than indicating illegal and excessive force, they instead show an officer who rigidly followed the procedures deemed

A veteran pollster has some clear numbers suggesting President Trump will be reelected, despite economic uneasiness, public unrest, media hostility and the coronavirus pandemic. It may not be a blockbuster win, but it is a win nonetheless over Democratic hopeful Joseph R. Biden. “Overall, a slim majority (51%) of likely voters thought, regardless of their political support, that President Trump would win reelection over Democratic nominee Joe Biden (43%), while 6% thought someone else would win the 2020 Presidential Election,” reports John Zogby in a new poll of 1,007 likely voters conducted June 1-2. He is one of the few pollsters who breaks down voter preference into some very distinctive demographics.

Three cities, all supremely liberal, represent an American descent into anarchy against which no one is standing. After New York Mayor Bill de Blasio said he wanted to slash the police budget, the New York City Council is going about cutting $1 billion from that budget, about 16%. That will inevitably cause a reduction of police presence around the city and, with equal inevitability, result in an increase in crime. In Minneapolis, where George Floyd was killed in police custody on May 25, the city council plans to disband its police force entirely. On Friday, the city council voted to replace the police with a “community-led public safety system.”

The court’s four liberal justices – Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Sonia Sotomayor, Elena Kagan and Stephen Bryer – agreed. Justices Samuel Alito, Clarence Thomas and Brett Kavanugh dissented.
