The political left has made a complete pig’s breakfast of our educational system.
Safe Snowflake Schools for Socialism.
Political intolerance is now the official policy at colleges and universities across the United States with violence or the threat thereof as the means of enforcing extreme leftist orthodoxy.
In February, a proposed speech by former Breitbart editor Milo Yiannopoulos precipitated riots at the University of California Berkeley as protesters smashed ATMs and bank windows, looted a Starbucks, beat Trump supporters, pepper-sprayed innocent individuals, and set fires in the street. The speech was cancelled.
Like Al Franken, a former clown who is now scary instead of funny.

Family Security Matters

When Bill O’Reilly left Fox News he declared, “I am very confident the truth will come out and when it does I don’t know if you are going to be surprised, but I think you are going to be shaken as I am.” Some observers think he was referring not to the sexual harassment allegations against him, but to behind-the-scenes maneuvers by one of Rupert Murdoch’s sons, James, and his very liberal wife, Kathryn. Her bio says, “Between 2007-2011, Ms. Murdoch served as Director of Strategy & Communications for the Clinton Climate Initiative (CCI) where she also managed CCI ‘s partnership with Microsoft in the development of a global greenhouse gas emissions tracking software.”
In short, she is a globalist insider who sees the green hysteria as a viable way to control people and their lifestyles.
We warned back in 2007 in our column, “Rupert Murdoch Picks Liberal Son as Successor,” that James Murdoch was maneuvering to take control of Fox News. We also noted that James Murdoch “buys into global warming hysteria,” and that his liberal philosophy on environmental and other matters “could become the party line” of the Fox News Channel.
It turns out that his wife is more of an environmental zealot than he is.
SECURE FREEDOM MINUTE
Classified briefings to Congress today about the emerging threat from North Korea must address its most ominous – but least discussed – feature.
For years, a group of national security professionals working together as the Secure the Grid Coalition have been warning that North Korea may already have acquired – and perhaps deployed – the means to destroy the United States, perhaps with a single nuclear bomb.
Two of the Coalition’s top experts, former Clinton CIA Director James Woolsey and Dr. Peter Vincent Pry, assess that Pyongyang could already have placed aboard one of its two orbiting satellites a nuclear device optimized to conduct a devastating electromagnetic pulse attack. If detonated over the United States, one such weapon could destroy our unprotected electric grid – and our nation.
Trump officials and lawmakers are on notice: This threat must be neutralized, and the grid secured.
What if Donald Trump had unilaterally shut down every investigation into Russian espionage, released over 20 suspected Russian spies, struck a deal to get rid of sanctions against Russia—in return for honoring deals that had been signed years before—and then lied to the American people about the entire episode?
That’s the Obama Administration’s Iran deal. It might have been the first time the United States has offered extensive concessions to a nation that has continued to destabilize its interests, for nothing in return. But Barack Obama didn’t just support Iran’s position over our allies like Israel (no surprise there, considering his antagonism) or Sunni nations—he supported it ahead of his own Justice Department’s 30-year counterproliferation efforts.
Workers in New Orleans began removing the first of four prominent Confederate monuments early Monday. Crews began removing the first memorial, one that commemorates whites who tried to topple a biracial post-Civil War government in New Orleans. (April 24)
