'Deplorable' Professor Fights Back Against Campus Totalitarians

'Deplorable' Professor Fights Back Against Campus Totalitarians --An interview with the 'Anti-PC NYU Prof' | 22 Jan 2018 | "In the fall of 2016," New York University professor [and CLG Founder] Michael Rectenwald recently told The Daily Caller, "I was noting an increase of this social justice ideology on campuses, and it started to really alarm me. I saw it coming home to roost here at NYU, with the creation of the bias reporting hotline, and with the cancellation of the Milo Yiannopoulos talk because someone might walk past it and hear something which might 'trigger' them." Rectenwald, himself a leftist, created an initially anonymous Twitter account, @antipcnyuprof, to speak out against that ideology and the "absolutely anti-education and anti-intellectual" classroom indoctrination he was witnessing, as well as the collectivist surveillance state that the campus was becoming, as students were urged to report each other for the sin of committing microaggressions...Recently Rectenwald even filed a lawsuit against NYU and four of his colleagues for defamation. He consented to answering some questions for FrontPage Mag about his conflict with the NYU ideologues.

Senate fails to reach deal, extending shutdown for third day | 21 Jan 2018 | The Senate has failed to reach a deal to prevent the government shutdown from pushing into the workweek. A flurry of activity on Capitol Hill had stoked hopes that a deal to end the shutdown might be reached before furloughs for hundreds of thousands of government workers kick in on Monday. Instead, the Senate is now set to vote at noon on Monday to end debate on a measure that would fund the government through Feb. 8.

Pharma-terrorists strike again: Flu kills eight Santa Barbara residents in two weeks - all except one had received the flu vaccine | 08 Jan 2018 | Eight Santa Barbara County residents have died from the flu in the past two weeks alone. By contrast, only three residents died throughout last year's entire flu season, which typically runs from October to April. All eight people were ages 65 or older.

Shutdown Day 2: Bipartisan Group Eyes a Compromise Before Monday | 21 Jan 2018 | Members of Congress pushed Sunday to end a two-day-old government shutdown, with a bipartisan group of senators meeting behind closed doors in search of a compromise deal even as both parties continued to publicly trade blame. While lawmakers remained mired in partisan disputes as they reconvened in the early afternoon, the gathering of senators from the two parties offered a reason for cautious optimism that a deal could be reached before the workweek began. Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, the majority leader, said he would move ahead with a procedural vote on a temporary spending bill, which would occur by 1 a.m. Monday, and Speaker Paul D. Ryan of Wisconsin offered an assurance that his chamber would pass the measure.

Defense Secretary Jim Mattis has not signed off on the proposals for the new forces, which are part of a broader strategy to bolster Afghan forces so that they can battle the Taliban during the upcoming fighting season.

The new strategy that President Trump approved in August would push U.S. advisory teams to the battalion level, far closer to the front lines.

After some media outlets later suggested the policy could result in suspension or expulsion, Campus Reform reached out to UM for clarification, asking if a student could be suspended or expelled after making a single offensive remark.

Congress hurtles toward shutdown

Congress hurtles toward shutdown --The House passed a bill to keep the government funded for another four weeks, but prospects in the Senate look dim. | 18 Jan 2018 | Congress is careening toward the first shutdown in more than four years, with Republicans and Democrats at a seemingly intractable impasse over government funding and the fates of young immigrants facing deportation.

The Senate couldn't even agree on holding a vote on Thursday night, adjourning after Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell spurned Minority Leader Chuck Schumer's request to hold a vote and, assuming it failed, restart bipartisan negotiations on immigration and government spending levels.

Driving a Car in Manhattan Could Cost $11.52 Under Congestion Plan

Driving a Car in Manhattan Could Cost $11.52 Under Congestion Plan | 18 Jan 2018 | Driving a car into the busiest parts of Manhattan could cost $11.52 under a major proposal prepared for Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo that would make New York the first city in the United States with a pay-to-drive plan. New York has rejected or ignored versions of them dating to at least the 1970s. The newest plan embraces the twin goals of easing Manhattan's choking traffic while raising badly needed revenue for the city's failing subways and buses. The proposals are part of a report by a task force, "Fix NYC," convened by Governor Cuomo after he declared a state of emergency in the subways last June.
