Roosevelt University’s anti-Trump Safe Space

from the College Fix:

Roosevelt University has launched a self-described safe space campaign that includes posting “symbolic” signs across its urban and suburban campuses stating “Inclusion Has No Borders” in response to President Donald Trump’s immigration policies.

The university’s newly formed Outreach, Advocacy, Social Justice, Information and Safety (OASIS) Committee announced the campaign last week. The effort includes posting the “Inclusion Has No Borders” signage around the university, which has campuses in Chicago and nearby Schaumburg, Illinois.

Students, faculty and staff have been encouraged to post the signs on campus and use the hashtag “#YouAreWelcomeHere” on their social media accounts. read more

WND Weekly Exclusive – Have We Lost Kooky California for Good?

by: the Common Constitutionalist

It looks like the agents of the department of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) are finally being allowed to the job they were hired to do – unless they were hired during Obama’s reign. Then, their job description was to look the other way, catch and release and taxi illegals to safe spaces throughout the country.

We on the right are thrilled to hear this news. However, for those on left – not so much.

Sob stories abound across the Internet at virtually every leftist site. Stories of mothers deported, leaving their children behind. Whole families of illegals, braving the snow and bitter cold, to make the trek into the loving arms of Canada. Illegals in Georgia who are voluntarily opting out of the food stamp program, so as not to be caught by Trump and his jackbooted ICE brigade. read more

I don’t think anyone would ever mistake me for a leftist – not even being left leaning. There’s not much about them that makes any sense and the decisions they make, the opinions they have, tend to be highly contradictory at times.

Their views on children, for example. They teach children about separation of Church and State, but dress them up in Hijabs, conduct mock prayers to Allah and teach them the Five Pillars of Islam.

They teach children about the dangers of predatory men in the schoolyard, the playground, on the streets and online. Yet they insist that everyone should be able to use the same bathroom.

The left insists on coddling children – protecting them from every potentially dangerous or controversial situation (when it suits their political agenda). They claim that we must shield them from disappointment and anything which can damage a young student’s self-esteem or hurt their little feelings. read more

WND Weekly Exclusive – How’s That Soda Tax Working Out?

Oh Nanny Bloomberg. Just look what you started.

Recall when former NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg decided to tax and/or regulate everything that wasn’t nailed down – limiting salt, taxing and limiting the size of those evil “sugary” beverages?

Well, in an effort to raise more money, cash-strapped cities across the nation are taking a cue from the mayor and instituting their own sweetened-beverage taxes. That’s the only drawback of progressivism. There just is never enough money to achieve greatness. You always need a little more – and a little more – and so on. read more

Flint Lead Poisoning was Actually Caused by Racism

Remember in 2015, the headlines were monopolized by the Flint, Michigan water crisis? In 2014, a decision was made to begin drawing the city’s drinking water from the Flint River, while they waited to reconnect to another source. By 2015, it was discovered that some children had elevated lead levels. After that, mass-hysteria took hold and the blame game was off and running.

Regardless of whether the science mates properly with the hyperbole, which is does not, there is no putting the lead genie back in the bottle. If you care to compare the actual science with the unhinged, you may read my article entitled, “Flint Lead Problems Just Got Worse.”

Now, some two years later and the problems in Flint have resurfaced. Uh-oh…did they find more lead in the water…or arsenic…or old lace? What is it man?!

No – none of that. As it turns out, because Flint is 57% black and only 37% white, the lead crisis is racist. read more

Andrew Young is More Reasonable than John Lewis

I’ve never been a fan of Andrew Young. I always knew him as Mayor of Atlanta, as he presided over the city when I lived there. But he was also a Jimmy Carter hack and executive director of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, although it wasn’t nearly as radical back then as it is now.

In other words, Andrew Young is no conservative. Yet he has some rather reasonable responses to queries from Neil Cavuto on Fox Business Channel regarding the Trump inauguration.

Former Black Panther Destroys John Lewis

Former member of the radical`60’s era Black Panthers, Mason Weaver, went on Tucker Carlson’s Fox News show last night to discuss civil rights icon John Lewis and Lewis’s feud with Donald Trump.

In a rather stunning exposé, Weaver completely dismantles Lewis’s argument that Trump is somehow illegitimate. Rather, Weaver insists that it is Lewis and the other phony social justice warriors who are illegitimate and are the ones to blame for all the problems of the black community.

What to do With a Crying Baby on a Cross-Country Flight

by: the Common Constitutionalist

A couple of weeks ago a mother, father and their 10-month old daughter boarded a Delta flight from New York City to Los Angeles.

The baby was crying as they boarded and headed to the first class seats the couple purchased. The mother, Arielle Noa Charnas, a fashion blogger (yes – I guess that’s a real thing) described the expressions of dread by the other passengers. She explained that the couple purchased the first class tickets to afford them extra room to lay the baby down. I suppose there was no room in the overhead. KIDDING!

The Independent.com reported her Instagram post that, “once we were boarded I was getting tons of eye rolls and head shakes from fellow passengers on @delta because my baby was crying (as if I could just look at Ruby and say okay now it’s time to stop).” Last I checked, the name of the airline is Delta, not @delta, but maybe I’m just an @stickler.

Arielle said that after only 10 minutes, a stewardess – check that – flight attendant, came to her and asked her to move to the back of the bus…I mean…plane. Thank heavens she is white or that would be a whole other issue. read more

Another Hollywood Nimrod Shows His True Colors

Most people don’t the name Patton Oswalt – or maybe most people do and it’s just me.

Turns out he’s an actor, voice-over actor and comedian. He’s one of those actors whose face is easily recognizable, but unlike a-listers, the name rarely gets paired with the face. The old – “I know that guy, but don’t know his name.” He has been in many films, in TV shows such as King of Queens and was the voice of Remy, the rat in hit cartoon movie Ratatouille, which grossed well north of a half a billion dollars. My boys and I love that movie, but I now may love it a bit less.

In another example of Twitter is mostly for the stupid, Mr. Oswalt took to it to express his callous and ignorance after the Ft Lauderdale Airport shootings.

Oswalt tweet: “Hoping the #FortLauderdale shooter is a Trump supporter AND a Muslim so we can all focus on gun control & access to mental health care.” read more

Thomas Sowell Finally Hanging it Up

Random thoughts and looking back

The first column I ever wrote, 39 years ago, was titled “The Profits of Doom.” This was long before Al Gore made millions of dollars promoting global warming hysteria.

Any honest man, looking back on a very long life, must admit — even if only to himself — being a relic of a bygone era. Having lived long enough to have seen both “the greatest generation” that fought World War II and the gratingest generation that we see all around us today, makes being a relic of the past more of a boast than an admission. read more
