Trump administration asks Supreme Court to hear DACA case ahead of appeals courts

Trump administration asks Supreme Court to hear DACA case ahead of appeals courts | 05 Nov 2018 | The Trump administration is asking the Supreme Court to preemptively step into the legal fights over its decision to end the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program and decide this term whether the move was lawful. Solicitor Noel Francisco filed a petition with the court on Monday asking the justices to hear their case and issue an opinion before the 2nd, 9th and D.C. Circuit courts of appeals have ruled. In February, the Supreme Court denied the government's request to hear its appeal of a district court's order forcing the government to maintain the DACA program ahead of the 9th Circuit's review.

Supreme Court declines to take on net neutrality challenges, in blow to telecom industry

Supreme Court declines to take on net neutrality challenges, in blow to telecom industry | 05 Nov 2018 | In a setback for industry groups, the U.S. Supreme Court on Monday announced that it would not take up challenges to Obama-era "net neutrality" regulations that barred internet service providers from giving certain customers preferential treatment. The Trump administration overturned those regulations last year, and since June they have not been in effect. But a range of challenges to the regulations remained before the court, brought by groups such as the United States Telecom Association, AT&T and The Internet & Television Association. The court's decision will leave in effect a decision from a federal appeals court in Washington upholding the constitutionality of the regulations.

It's NOT Okay to Be White in Canada's Universities

It's NOT Okay to Be White in Canada's Universities | 04 Nov 2018 | I am the student who put up the 'It's Okay To Be White' flyers at the University of Manitoba. This Is My Statement - The flyers were intended to convey one thing and one thing only: IT'S OKAY TO BE WHITE. They were posted in protest of racially discriminatory ideology that is taught at the University of Manitoba that targets white individuals. The absurd over-reaction, including by Harjit Sajjan, the Minister of National Defence, to a statement indicating it is "Okay" (i.e. acceptable) to be genetically European (white) is proof that many people do in fact believe it is not acceptable for an individual to be white. Simply stating that it is acceptable for an individual to have certain DNA has sparked outrage, accusations of "racism", "white supremacy", and "hatred", and has even been condemned as "offensive" and a "scare tactic".

"Beautiful sight."

Now it's in the hands of the Department of Justice to investigate her for potentially making 'materially false statements' and for 'obstruction'. Munro-Leighton sent an anonymous letter to Senator Kamala Harris on September 19, describing with graphic detail how Kavanaugh and a friend had supposedly raped her several times in the backseat of a car, but did not mention when or where.

CLG Exclusive: Why I Invited Milo Yiannopolous to Speak to My Class

(and what he had to say) --By Michael Rectenwald, NYU 01 Nov 2018

I first discovered Milo Yiannopolous when I was still a leftist.

I thought he made some great points as he poked fun at the identity politics of the left, which was one of my bugbears as well.
