It’s ‘Unequivocal’ Hillary’s Team Colluded with Russians, Lewandowski Says

President Donald Trump’s former election chief declares ‘there’s one campaign and only one campaign’ that participated in collusion.

“There’s one campaign and only one campaign” that colluded with Russians in the 2016 U.S. presidential election, and it wasn’t President Donald Trump’s, Corey Lewandowski claimed during a Monday interview on Fox News’ “The Ingraham Angle.”

“It’s very clear. I was there before Donald Trump ever came down that escalator. We never colluded with Russians,” said Lewandowski, who managed the Trump campaign in its early months. “There’s one campaign and only one campaign that has admitted to taking $5 million of their campaign money, going and hiring a British spy to go and put a false dossier together — and it’s the Clinton campaign.”

Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign committee and the Democratic National Committee (DNC) paid Christopher Steele, the former British spy who authored the Trump-Russia dossier, characterized by former FBI Director James Comey as “salacious and unverified.” The payments went through a Washington, D.C., law firm with strong Democratic ties.

Yale University teaches students ‘counternarratives around whiteness’

Course looks at ‘whiteness’ as ‘culturally constructed and economically incorporated entity’

Yale University is offering a course this semester which aims to help students understand and counteract “whiteness,” exploring such topics as “white imagination,” “white property” and “white speech.”

According to the syllabus for “Constructions of Whiteness” obtained by The College Fix, the English course is an “interdisciplinary approach to examining our understanding of whiteness.”

The class, which is apparently being offered for the first time this semester, discusses “whiteness as a culturally constructed and economically incorporated entity, which touches upon and assigns value to nearly every aspect of American life and culture.”

The goal of the class is to “create a lab for the construction of counternarratives around whiteness in any creative form: play, poem, memoir, etc.,” states the syllabus.

Taught by Professor Claudia Rankine, the class is divided into eight topics: Constructions of Whiteness, White Property, White Masculinity, White Femininity, White Speech, White Prosperity, White Spaces and White Imagination, according to the syllabus.

Video: ‘F*ck All of You!’ California Open Borders Activists Surround DHS Agents

A group of open borders activists blocked and surrounded federal immigration officials in downtown Los Angeles, California on Thursday, preventing the agents from accessing a nearby detention center.

Coordinated by a slew of open borders groups, about 50 illegal immigrant activists stopped a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) van of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents while they were on their way to a detention center.

The open borders activists shouted, “Stop the deportations!” and other pro-illegal immigration chants, as captured by Los Angeles Times reporter Marcus Yam.

“Hey hey! Ho ho! Deportations have got to go!” the activists can be heard shouting at ICE agents. Another open borders activists shouted at Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) officers, saying “F*ck all you n*ggas!”

Twin Brothers Arrested in Bronx Hatched Terror Plot That Involved Underage Sex, Student Labor: Investigators (Video)

In their fourth-floor apartment, according to investigators, the Toro brothers carried out bomb-making activity for months. However, according to the complaint against the Toros, it wasn’t just the twin brothers involved.

New details are emerging about twin brothers being held without bail on accusations that they’d amassed bomb-making materials, with the intention of eventually building and using an explosive device in New York.

Their story also involves allegations of sex with a minor, incriminating diary entries and threats to school safety, according to KTLA sister station KPIX in New York City.

The school involved is the one in Harlem where one of the brothers was a teacher. Administrators are being credited with helping to foil a potential plot of mass destruction.

Still, school officials aren’t above criticism by some parents concerned about their children’s safety.

The story has two main locations — Harlem Prep High School, where one of the brothers, Christian Toro, taught special education — and the home where the brothers, Tyler and Christian, both, 27, lived, in the Pelham Parkway section of the Bronx.

Poll: Obama ‘worst president’ since World War II

In a new Quinnipiac University Poll, 33% named Barack Obama the worst president since World War II. Only 8% named Obama as the best president. How the 12 post-war presidents fared:

President Obama has topped predecessor George W. Bush in another poll, but not one he would like.

In a new Quinnipiac University Poll, 33% named Obama the worst president since World War II, and 28% put Bush at the bottom of post-war presidents.

“Over the span of 69 years of American history and 12 presidencies, President Barack Obama finds himself with President George W. Bush at the bottom of the popularity barrel,” said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.

Of course, Obama and Bush are the most recent presidents; historians will tell you that it takes decades to truly measure an individual president’s performance.

Ronald Reagan topped the poll as the best president since World War II, with 35%. He is followed by presidents Bill Clinton (18%) and John F. Kennedy (15%).

Obama received only 8% in the best presidents poll.

The motives behind the massacre by Pat Buchanan

‘We are a formerly Christian society in an advanced state of decomposition’

“Enough is enough!” “This can’t go on!” “This has to stop!”

These were among the comments that came through the blizzard of commentary after the massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Broward County. We have heard these words before.

Unfortunately, such atrocities are not going to stop. For the ingredients that produce such slaughters are present and abundant in American society.

And what can stop a man full of hate, who has ceased to care about his life and is willing to end it, from getting a weapon in a country of 300 million guns and killing as many as he can in a public place before the police arrive?

An act of “absolute pure evil,” said Gov. Rick Scott, of the atrocity that took 17 lives and left a dozen more wounded. And evil is the right word.

While this massacre may be a product of mental illness, it is surely a product of moral depravity. For this was premeditated and plotted, done in copycat style to the mass killings to which this country has become all too accustomed.

Three Charles Manson Movies Are Coming, But Quentin Tarantino’s Is In Jeopardy at Sony Over Polanski-Thurman Stories

The third Manson movie is the one from Quentin Tarantino with a $200 million plus budget and loads of stars– Brad Pitt, Margot Robbie, Tom Cruise– said to be involved.

Not one, not two, but three Charles Manson movies are coming. One of them, by Quentin Tarantino, however, is in jeopardy at Sony and may not get made at all.

Mary Harron, whose “I Shot Andy Warhol” is one of the great indie classics (cinematography by Ellen Kuras, Jared Harris in a landmark performane, Lili Taylor OMG good), is making “Charlie Says” with Matt Smith of “Dr. Who” and “The Crown” fame.

Hillary Duff has signed to play Sharon Tate, the late Mrs. Roman Polanski, murdered by the Manson family, in “The Haunting of Sharon Tate.” That one sounds like it’s straight to Lifetime, though.

The third Manson movie is the one from Quentin Tarantino with a $200 million plus budget and loads of stars– Brad Pitt, Margot Robbie, Tom Cruise– said to be involved.

But now I’m hearing that Sony is having second thoughts because of Tarantino’s double trouble in the press. First there was Uma Thurman’s accusations that her pal, Quentin, allowed her to film a scene in which she was seriously injured for “Kill Bill.” Thurman has back pedaled a bit since this started, and Quentin did a mea culpa, but it’s out there.

President Obama’s Anti-White Racism Portrait Scandal | True News – Stefan Molyneux (Video)

On February 12th, 2018, the National Portrait Gallery today unveiled separate official portraits of President Barack Obama and ex-first lady Michelle Obama. Former President Obama choose controversial artist Kehinde Wiley create his official portrait and while the quality of the artwork was widely mocked, the artist’s previous work raised significant alarm. Wiley has previously created several renditions of the “Book of Judith” Biblical story depicting Judith beheading the Assyrian general Holofernes. In Wiley’s rendition, Judith was transformed from a Jewish woman into a black woman, and Holofernes is changed from a man into a white woman. Given the clear racial overtones – why did President Obama choose this specific artist?

Why the origins of political correctness should frighten you

Instead of taking lessons from the “loving Left” on political correctness, let’s call out the troublemakers and make them acknowledge their own origins of upending the social order.

It’s commonplace to hear liberals complain about conservatives denouncing them for being too politically correct. Usually, the classic response from the Left has to do with stressing the importance of “empathy” or “protecting marginalized people.” That’s a very Rousseauian way of thinking, common among liberals — an appeal to emotion. Recently, however, I’ve noticed leftists are taking a bit of a different path: accusing us on the political Right of engaging in safe space culture and having our own version of political correctness, calling it “conservative correctness.”

This argument is either some tenacious assertion that political correctness isn’t really a phenomenon or that the political Right has its own equivalence. It may sound reasonable, but upon further inspection, it is anything but reasonable. When one understands the origins of political correctness and its inherent relationship with left-wing politics, these arguments are clearly exposed as a deceptive attempt to both beguile and harm open debate on college campuses.

Reed College to revise Western Civ class after protests call it too ‘Caucasoid’ and ‘Eurocentric’

Protesters: ‘an incorrect fundamental assumption that a truly educated person must understand the Western Canon’

Reed College leaders have agreed to revise a mandatory freshman humanities course focused on the Western Canon in the wake of a protracted student protest campaign against the class that decried it as too “Caucasoid” and “Eurocentric.”

Although details are still being hashed out, faculty appear to have agreed to broaden the scope of the course to allow for more authors of color and to study thinkers from geographic locations beyond Europe.

The course had traditionally focused on scholars underpinning Western Civilization, and assigned books written by Greco-Roman thinkers such as Aristotle, Plato and Ovid, as well as from Mesopotamia and Egypt.

But for more than a year “Humanities 110” has been the target of protests by a student group called “Reedies Against Racism,” who demanded it be “reformed to represent the voices of people of color.” In statements to The College Fix over the last year, student protesters have called the class too “Caucasoid” and “Eurocentric.”
