Washington state college students berate professor who refused to participate in no-whites ‘Day of Absence’

A mob of students at a Washington state liberal-arts college confronted a professor and demanded his resignation for writing an email questioning the propriety of a race demonstration in which white people were invited to leave campus for a day. The incident closely mirrors one at Yale University in 2015, in which an email over the right to wear provocative Halloween costumes set off a firestorm and resulted in the resignations of two residential college leaders. A video of the confrontation at Evergreen State College, recorded by one of the protesters and posted to Facebook on Tuesday, shows biology professor Bret Weinstein attempting to reason with dozens of students who routinely shout him down, curse at him and demand his resignation. “There’s a difference between debate and dialectic,” Mr. Weinstein says in the video. “Debate — wait a second — debate means you are trying to win; dialectic means you are using disagreement to discover what is true. I am not interested in debate. I am only interested in dialectic, which does mean I listen to you, and you listen to me.” One student responds, “We don’t care what terms you want to speak on. This is not about you. We are not speaking on terms—on terms of white privilege. This is not a discussion. You have lost that one.” The “Day of Absence & Day of Presence” is an annual event at Evergreen that took place the week of April 9 this year, according to the school’s website. Students and faculty of color have traditionally left campus for the day to hold team-building exercises and demonstrate their importance to the community through their absence. White students and faculty, meanwhile, have traditionally remained on campus to attend anti-racism workshops and seminars. But this year, the school decided to reverse that order, according to campus newspaper the Cooper Point Journal. In an email to Rashida Love, the director of First Peoples Multicultural Advising Services at Evergreen, Mr. Weinstein, who is white, said he would remain on campus. “On a college campus, one’s right to speak— or to be —should never be based on skin color,” he wrote in the March 15 email, which was posted to social media Wednesday.

Kudos to Professor Bret Weinstein for standing up to these punks..  Wow..  Those that got in his face and harassed him should be suspended at the very least.  This kind of brazen bullying by STUDENTS needs to stop, and colleges should not tolerate such behavior at all.  When I was an undergrad, it would have been unthinkable to act that way.  And, I’m positive that if some kid had done this, he’d have been expelled immediately.  Anyway, to read the rest of this story, click on the text above.

Coulter: Rome Burns – Nero Worries About Pyrophobia

The latest Muslim terrorist attack ripped apart little girls at a concert in Manchester, England, on Monday, killing 22. The death and body-part count is still rising. This is not a game. When young British girls are the targets of a suicide bombing, can we take a short break from the posturing, political correctness and Russia conspiracy theorizing? Won’t the hatred of Trump keep for a few weeks? Channel-surfing on Monday night was like watching broadcasts from different countries. While Fox News and CNN covered the terrorist attack, MSNBC concentrated on the real news of the night — TRUMP’S COLLUSION WITH RUSSIA — as children screamed in the background in footage from Manchester. It was a big enough step for MSNBC to stop claiming that the “explosion” was just popping balloons. The hosts reasoned, We know that Islam is a religion of peace, so what else could it be? CBS and NBC News finally produced the name of the suicide bomber — the next day. (After any terrorist attack, the media like to keep us in suspense for as long as possible about whether it was a Muslim or a Christian.) Even then, the answer was difficult to find on either network’s Twitter feeds, which were bristling with minute-by-minute updates on former CIA Director John Brennan’s congressional testimony about Russia and Trump: Yes, collusion was investigated. No, Brennan is not aware of any evidence to support the theory. BREAKING NEWS! The media didn’t gaudily broadcast the bomber’s name, religion or ethnicity in their headlines, but at least they finally coughed up the information. He was Salman Abedi, son of Libyan “refugees.” Apparently, the media think you can’t be trusted with that information. You might notice that the West is deliberately importing people who enjoy killing kids. According to ABC News, the bomber’s father, Ramadan Abedi (not to be confused with Huma Abedin) was a member of an al-Qaida-linked Islamic group in Libya. For this, he was accepted as a “refugee” by the British government. Liberals’ main reaction to the attack was not to demand the toppling of the terrorist-friendly British government, but to worry about an upsurge in Islamophobia. They say there’s nothing we can do about terrorism and we probably shouldn’t do anything anyway, because we deserve it. These were teen and preteen girls! Is there any fuel left in the gas tank of humanity, or are we just running on fumes now? While liberals are impatient to get back to their murderous immigration policies, conservatives are pining for war. And really, who wouldn’t want to send ground troops to Syria after our tremendous successes in Iraq and Afghanistan? Why do we need to fight ISIS in Syria again? I forget. How about we NOT send U.S. troops to some godforsaken nation of primitives? My reasoning is: It will cost us trillions of dollars; we will sacrifice the lives of an untold number of our best young men in combat (and little girls — thanks, liberals!); and we will accomplish absolutely nothing, apart from creating a new stream of “refugees” and making the primitives even angrier with us, if that’s possible. Historically, starting wars in the Third World has not proved salutary. Trump was elected for one reason: Because he promised to put Americans’ interests first. If only he’d stuck to his campaign promises, he’d be a hero right now. The one promise Trump has kept is the so-called “Muslim ban” — and he’s looking prophetic on that. The Ninth Circuit was probably just about to release its opinion affirming a Hawaii judge’s revocation of Trump’s travel ban, but after Manchester, they’ll have to sit on it for a few weeks. Wouldn’t you rather be defending Trump for imposing a travel ban, building a wall and deporting “Dreamers,” than for idiotic leaks about nothing? If Trump started removing undesirable foreigners, liberals would rush back to the airports, en masse, and forget all about Russia. The most humane response to terrorist attacks in the West is to kill a bunch of them for revenge, and then concentrate on our own problems. Instead of sending ground troops to Syria, we should be sending them to San Diego. Our policy following every Islamic terrorist attack anyplace in the West should be the following: 1) We drop a nuke on some majority-Muslim city involved in terrorism. 2) We add six months to the immigration moratorium (which Trump promised us in his Aug. 16, 2015, immigration policy paper, the greatest political document since the Magna Carta). 3) We deport one Ninth Circuit judge. Since Trump, politics has become a game to liberals. The media is a game. Hollywood is a game. Islamic terrorists are killing little girls in England. This isn’t a game.

Indeed it’s not..  Firebrand conservative author Ann Coulter is responsible for that sobering op/ed.  We get that Ann is all fired up..  But, if you stop, pause and really think about it..  Pres. Trump HAS kept a LOT of his campaign promises already, and it’s only been 4 months.  He nominated AND got appointed a very conservative Associate Supreme Court Justice in Neil Gorsuch.  That alone was probably the single most important thing that he could do as President…and he did it.  He also nominated, and got approved a Cabinet that is even more conservative the Ronald Reagans!  As it relates to the travel ban..  He’s done everything he can.  And, AG Jeff Sessions said today that they’ll now take that battle to the Supreme Court now.  Then, today, Trump looked the snickering members of NATO in the eye and told them to get off their collective asses and start paying their fair share of the NATO budget.  How great is that?!?  Finally, did ya see that budget proposal that the Trump White House sent to Congress?  It was awesome!!  We could go on.  But, you get the picture.   Trump is doing his part, no two ways about it.  Unfortunately, he is being undermined by leakers (who should go to prison), and real “collusion” between Democrats and the dominantly liberal mainstream media who aren’t interested in facts; only in pinning something on Trump..so that they can get rid of him.  That’s it.  And, even with this horrific story out of the UK, you have that worthless rag MSNBC unable to even mention what happened.  To them, the Russia story is all that matters.  I get that they’re audience are mostly “low information” viewers…and die-hard liberals  But, if you now know just how worthless they are as a source of news and information, and yet you continue to go to it for just that, then you’re a total moron.

Alien life may already exist in our galaxy

Saturn’s moon Enceladus, Jupiter’s moon Europa, Pluto and its moon Charon, as well as the dwarf planet Ceres are potential homes for extra-terrestrials, scientists at University of Texas at San Antonio and the Southwest Research Institute claim. It’s all down to a process called radioalysis, which experts believe could breed life across the universe. All that’s needed is a rocky core and water molecules – something scientists reckon our solar system has plenty of. The study found that a the rocky cores of some planets and moons emit radiation which break up water molecules and in turn feed microbial life. Scientists conducted an experiment to predict how the radiation would affect interior oceans on planets like Pluto and Saturn’s moon Europa. Alexis Bouquet, lead author said: “The physical and chemical processes that follow radiolysis release molecular hydrogen, which is a molecule of astrobiological interest.” The radiation comes from elements like uranium, potassium and thorium – all of which are found in a group of rocky meteorites called chrondites. Pluto, as well as Saturn and Jupiter’s moons, is made up of chrondite. That means any ocean water permeating the porous rock of the core could be affected by radiolysis, producing molecular hydrogen and reactive oxygen compounds – the building blocks for life. NASA seems pretty convinced that Europa has a big ocean on it, and is planning to send a spaceship there to search for alien life. Lifeforms which have formed through radiolysis can be found closer to home. Bouquet said that they have been found in extreme environments on Earth. These include a groundwater sample found nearly two miles deep in a South African gold mine and at hydrothermal vents on the ocean floor. Their existence suggests microbes could be found where rock and ocean meet in planets like Enceladus or Europa. “We know that these radioactive elements exist within icy bodies, but this is the first systematic look at the solar system to estimate radiolysis. “The results suggest that there are many potential targets for exploration out there, and that’s exciting,” added co-author Dr Danielle Wyrick, a principal scientist in Southwest Research Institute’s Space Science and Engineering Division. Radiolysis could also help create food for these aliens. “Radiolysis in an ocean world’s outer core could be fundamental in supporting life. Because mixtures of water and rock are everywhere in the outer solar system, this insight increases the odds of abundant habitable real estate out there,” Bouquet said. It’s just the latest discovery to delight UFO hunters. Conspiracy theorists tongues were wagging after a mysterious star which could be home to alien life began flashing again last week.

Leftist Sports Writers Ramping Up Pressure on NCAA to Punish Texas Over Bathroom Bill

The liberal sports media establishment is ramping up its pressure on the organization that governs college sports to punish the state of Texas as its gets ready to pass its own version of the North Carolina transgender bathroom bill. The left-wing sports site Deadspin is rallying the troops to force the NCAA to punish Texas if it passes its own bathroom bill into law. The Lone Star State is working on a bill that would require people to use restrooms in government-operated facilities that correspond to their birth sex, meaning that men pretending to be women would not be allowed to use the women’s restroom. But, as soon as the state began looking at such a law, sports leagues weighed in as if they should have a say in laws states consider. Indeed, right after the bathroom bill was introduced, Lone Star Governor Greg Abbott slammed an executive of the NFL who warned the state that future Super Bowls would be canceled in Texas if the state should pass the bill. “For some low-level NFL adviser to come out and say that they are going to micromanage and try to dictate to the state of Texas what types of policies we’re going to pass in our state, that’s unacceptable,” Abbott said early in March. Since the governor’s comment, the state’s House of Representatives passed a version of the bathroom bill, and it now sits in the Senate awaiting consideration. And as the bill winds its way through the lawmaking process, Deadspin is now marshaling its forces to punish Texas over its impending passage. The lefty sports site is now urging the NCAA to warn Texas that if it passes its bathroom bill, the organization will pull any future tournament games. But, Deadspin is upset that the NCAA has said nothing about this thus far.

Perhaps, just perhaps..  The NCAA saw what happened to ESPN when it became overrun by  extreme liberal sportswriters, anchors, and so on…and, as a result, lost millions and millions in revenue as customers were cancelling their subscriptions.  And why was that?  Because ESPN was brazenly taking political positions.  People watch sports to get away from politics; NOT get preached to by arrogant, elitist, liberal sports nerds (who have the IQ of a Chihuahua) about who they should vote for, and what social policies they think we need imposed on us because we’re a bunch of stupid, racist, inbred, hicks.  Its why ESPN is on life support…and why America elected Donald Trump.  Americans are sick and tired of political correctness.

Boeing is building DARPA’s new hypersonic space plane

A few years ago, DARPA started work on a new experimental aircraft project called the XS-1, a vehicle designed to make launching satellites a faster, less expensive endeavor. Today, that project just took a huge leap forward: DARPA has announced that it’s partnering with Boeing to build its next generation hypersonic space plane. Specifically, the aircraft manufacturer has been tapped to complete advanced design work on the XS-1 project, following up on the concept Boeing pitched to the agency during the project’s early stages — which it will now help build and test over the next several years. In practice, this means Boeing is now building a unmanned, reusable hypersonic jet with the goal of running ten test flights over ten consecutive days by the year 2020 — a program that’s designed to prove that the XS-1 will be able to launch satellites into low-earth orbit on short notice. “The XS-1 would be neither a traditional airplane nor a conventional launch vehicle but rather a combination of the two,” DARPA’s Jess Sponable explained in a press release. “With the goal of lowering launch costs by a factor of ten and replacing today’s frustratingly long wait time with launch on demand.” The XS-1 will manage this feat by flying to suborbital heights without boosters before deploying a disposable, secondary rocket to push its payload into orbit. Better still, the spaceplane be able to take a second satellite up within hours of delivering the first. Well, that’s the plan anyway — the project is still years away from being finished, and the earliest on-ground engine tests won’t start until 2019 at the earliest. Until then, we’ll have to settle for DARPA’s concept video, which admittedly, is still pretty cool. To see it, click here.

Very cool!!   🙂

‘The View’ Bashes Trump as Unpresidential for Calling Terrorists ‘Evil Losers’

Following the horrific terror attack in Manchester, England, President Trump slammed the terrorists behind the bombing, calling them “evil losers.” On “The View” on Tuesday, some of the co-hosts took issue with Trump’s remark. Sunny Hostin said using the term “evil losers” was not presidential. “Harkening back to President Obama, who talked about the victims and didn’t talk about the bombers necessarily … and talked about how we as a society have to come together. I was expecting something like that,” Hostin said. Whoopi Goldberg agreed, saying she wants the president to be “one step above.” “I want him or her to be one step above and I don’t want them talking like I would talk,” Goldberg said. “When it comes down to it, if you’re the president of a country, you have to speak for that country.” On “Outnumbered” today, Harris Faulkner asked if it was presidential for Obama to dub ISIS a “JV team.” Herman Cain said he agrees with Trump calling terrorists “losers,” because they attack innocent people who can’t defend themselves and because their culture and way of life has lost to ours. “That’s what they have lost. And their only solution is: try to wipe us out,” Cain said. “So they’re losers for two reasons.” Meghan McCain pointed out that many national security analysts say that this type of rhetoric minimizes and takes power away from terrorists. “Never underestimate how much attention these losers and cowards are paying to their reaction in the media,” McCain said. “Because they are.”

Personally, I kinda like that we have a President who just calls it as he sees it, and calls these disgusting, barbaric, Islamic wackos “evil losers.”  Harris nailed it when she asked if it was “presidential” for Obama to call ISIS the “JV team.”  Exactly!!  On the one hand we had for 8 years a President who was a measured, polished, and a very calculating lawyer who downplayed the threat of ISIS; a group he essentially created by his foolish actions in Iraq..  Then, on the other hand, we have a new President who isn’t as polished, and is a New York businessman..and he just calls these maggots “evil losers.”  At least he gets it!  As for Whoopi and the other ladies on The View..  I think that if Trump had found the cure for cancer, they’d find some way to criticize him.  They need to grow up, get the heck over the fact that their gal lost in November..and when Trump attacks these Islamo-fascists, they should support him…or just shut the hell up.  They’re just making fools of themselves.

Judge to reconsider ruling blocking Trump’s order to pull funds from sanctuary cities

A federal judge has agreed to reconsider his ruling blocking President Donald Trump’s executive order to cut funding from sanctuary cities. U.S. District Judge William Orrick on Tuesday accepted the administration’s request to reconsider his April ruling. He gave the two California counties that challenged the executive order — San Francisco and Santa Clara — two weeks to file any documents opposing the request. The executive order threatened to withhold federal funds from cities that limit cooperation with U.S. immigration authorities. The Trump administration sought reconsideration in light of a new memo by Attorney General Jeff Sessions. The memo issued Monday reasserts the department’s position that Trump’s executive order applies to a relatively small amount of money. The Trump administration says it undercuts the court’s decision to block the executive order.
