How is Oberlin getting away with this? When does Gibson’s Bakery get what is owed to them? Ellie Gardey writes at the American Spectator: Oberlin College, Facing $36 Million Penalty for Defamatory Woke Activism, Dives Deeper Into Wokism The historically liberal Oberlin College, located in Oberlin, Ohio, is still refusing to pay up for defaming Gibson’s Bakery as racist in 2016. The college, which is financially underwater, has now asked the Ohio Supreme Court to halt the multi-million dollar judgment while it appeals the decision for the second time.


Some posters at Legal Insurrection have raised the question why the Ohio Supreme Court is “taking so long in deciding whether to hear the case? The appeal was months ago.”

Gibsons should get an emergency injunction to stop all campus actions (shut down) until payment has been made.

The legal system has its exploitable flaws, one being that there is a severe imbalance of power that allows wealth to delay/avoid consequences. It is time for this particular travesty to end.

Oberlin College is a nasty piece of work. They fit in with the Woke crowd. (I ordered a tshirt from Gibson’s. Not much, but wanted them to know there are people supporting them.)

Too bad the "Right" doesn't have rent-a-mobs at the ready to go give Oberlin a little encouragement, shall we say, to do the right thing regardless of the dent it will make in its stuffed pockets. Didn't they listen to Obama when he said "At some point, don't you just have enough money?"

Get a sheriff to attach one of their bigger buildings, to be sold for payment of a debt. And then hold a sheriff's sale, and sell the building to the highest bidder.

Arrest every single person who works at that college, starting with the president, until they pay up. Give them the same treatment that the J6 prisoners are getting. The college treasurer can make the cash transfer from his cell.

With mail-in ballots becoming a feature of all future elections, the United States government, specifically the United States Postal Service (USPS) is now creating a permanent division inside USPS to control the delivery and return of the election ballots. Do you know the political affiliation of your mail courier? As often said, it’s not the vote that matters, it’s the counting….or in this instance, the collection of the votes that really matters.(Snip)Keep in mind the union representing 300,000 U.S. postal workers previously endorsed Democrat Joe Biden for president. The National Association of Letter Carriers, is a fully compromised left-wing division of the USPS.

We found out on Thursday the Biden administration will fill in the gaps in Trump’s border wall near Yuma, AZ. Fox News reporter Peter Doocy asked Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre about Biden’s comments when he was a candidate. Jean-Pierre: "We are not finishing the wall." You’re not? I know this administration loves to change language and linguistics, but this is too much. Also, in 2019, Jean-Pierre called Trump’s wall racist. Is it racist when Biden does it? Jean-Pierre had the hardest time justifying the action while calling it ineffective and racist and claiming you’re just cleaning up Trump’s mess while trying to save lives:

It is over 3 years since Gibson’s Bakery obtained judgment against Oberlin College for almost $32 million, which with accumulated interest nears $36 million, the amount of a bond posted by the college through Zurich American Insurance to secure the judgment. Neither “Grandpa” Allyn Gibson nor his son David Gibson lived to see the Gibson family collect. They both passed away, as Oberlin College waited them out. Oberlin College has done everything possible to delay the Gibson’s getting the money, including an appeal which the college lost and another appeal to the Ohio Supreme Court, which has not yet ruled on whether it will hear the case.

According to Julie Kelly, this is the third suicide. People are expressing sadness and anger on Twitter.

Perhaps U.S. Rep. Jim Jordan was distracted. If he was, that could explain the Urbana Republican’s dismissal of the Respect for Marriage Act, which passed the House Monday, as “unnecessary.” Anyone with even a passing familiarity with U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas’ concurring opinion in the decision striking down Roe v. Wade knows about the conservative justice’s ominous suggestions. (Snip) Thomas wrote that the court should overturn decisions that protect same-sex marriage, same-sex sexual relations and access to contraceptives.

There is "no substantial constitutional question" for Ohio Supreme Court justices to consider when reviewing Gibson's Bakery's appeal over limits on monetary damage awards, attorneys for Oberlin College argued in a court filing Wednesday. The Gibsons and their attorneys are "distorting" the court record so their arguments will be heard, the college told the state's highest court in a memorandum. The bakery and its owners' arguments also are not "an issue of public or great general interest worthy of this court's review," the college's attorneys argued.

Most Christians who oppose abortion believe that the practice involves killing. The Bible is pretty clear about that. Campus Reform reports: ‘There is no biblical basis for the ban on abortion,’ Yale Divinity School claims. Yale Divinity School (YDS) published a pro-abortion statement that opposed the recent Supreme Court decision to reverse Roe v.

In February, American basketball star Brittney Griner was arrested at a Moscow airport after attempting to bring cannabis oil into the country, which is illegal according to Russian law. In the almost six months since being apprehended, Griner has lingered in a less-than-comfortable prison cell. On Thursday, the legal proceedings of the case came to a close when a Russian court delivered a guilty verdict, followed by a harsh sentence of nine years behind bars. None of Thursday’s developments should have come as a surprise to anyone. As we’ve noted before, 99% of all Russian prosecutions end with a guilty verdict, and with a maximum available sentence of ten years,

Posted by Imright 8/6/2022 5:35:51 AM Post Reply
The talk in the media is about a “beefed-up” IRS. The IRS budget for FY 2022 totals nearly $14 billion ($11.9 billion in appropriated funds) with a full-time equivalent (FTE) staff ceiling of 79,808 (75,533 from appropriated funding.) Now, the Democrat-controlled Congress, at the behest of the Biden Administration, wants to take that up an additional almost $80 billion, with 1% going to Department of the Treasury offices other than the IRS. That adds up to nearly $93 billion, seven times this year’s budget. SEVEN TIMES.

CBS News correspondent Catherine Herridge asked, “On January 6, do the new grand jury subpoenas suggest that the Justice Department is squarely focused on former President Trump? Barr said, “I think it definitely is a significant event. It changes my view of what’s been going on.

The United States is preparing a new $1bn security assistance package for Ukraine, which will include munitions for long-range weapons and armoured medical transport vehicles, according the Reuters news agency. The package would be one of the largest so far and is expected to be announced as early as Monday, three sources briefed on the matter told Reuters. The US has given about $8.8bn in aid to Ukraine since Russia’s invasion on February 24. The officials, speaking to Reuters on the condition of anonymity, said that President Joe Biden had not yet signed the next weapons package, and cautioned that weapons packages can change in value and content before they are signed.
