The radicals have taken over: Academic extremism comes to Canada

December 14, 2016 by walden9

The radicals have taken over: Academic extremism comes to Canada | 03 Dec 2016 | Until recently, Henry Parada was director of the School of Social Work at Ryerson University, Toronto’s big downtown commuter school. His career was going well and he got major research grants. Now he has stepped aside after a handful of students calling themselves the Black Liberation Collective accused him of "a violent act of anti-Blackness, misogyny and misogynoir." What was this act? It seems that he left a meeting where a black female speaker was giving a talk. No one knows why. [Perhaps he needed to take a piss?]

The discovery of the book was first published on Monday night by BWOG, Columbia's student-run campus news site.

It burned out of control for about an hour Wednesday afternoon before the FDNY declared it under control around 1 p.m.

Ohio governor vetoes 'heartbeat' abortion bill, but passes 20-week ban

December 13, 2016 by walden9

Ohio governor vetoes 'heartbeat' abortion bill, but passes 20-week ban | 14 Dec 2016 | Gov. John Kasich on Tuesday rejected the so-called "heartbeat bill," breaking with his party to veto legislation that would have given Ohio the strictest abortion ban in the nation. Kasich did tighten Ohio's abortion laws by signing a bill that would prevent abortions after 20 weeks' gestation, when opponents of the procedure say fetuses can feel pain. Still, the governor will face backlash from conservative Republicans for killing the bill they say would have prevented thousands of abortions.

Reed College Professor on Social Justice Left: ‘I am a Gay Mixed-Race Woman. I Am Intimidated By These Students’

December 13, 2016 by walden9

Reed College Professor on Social Justice Left: 'I am a Gay Mixed-Race Woman. I Am Intimidated By These Students' | 13 Dec 2016 | F**k this cis white b***h." That's the message, you will recall, that Reed College students placed at the podium where Boys Don't Cry director Kimberly Peirce was speaking. Peirce is a queer, genderfluid woman-her movie, which debuted in 1999, is about the murder of Brandon Teena, a young transgender man...But the most revealing comment came from Lucia Martinez, an assistant professor of English at Reed who identifies as a "gay mixed-race woman." Martinez wrote: "I teach at Reed. I am intimidated by these students. I am scared to teach courses on race, gender, or sexuality, or even texts that bring these issues up in any way—and I am a gay mixed-race woman. There is a serious problem here and at other [selective liberal arts colleges], and I'm at a loss as to how to begin to address it, especially since many of these students don't believe in either historicity or objective facts. (They denounce the latter as being a tool of the white cisheteropatriarchy.)"

December 13, 2016 by walden9

Judge rejects injunction request in Colorado elector suit seeking to block Donald Trump | 12 Dec 2016 | A federal judge on Monday rejected an attempt by two Colorado electors to unbind their votes in the Electoral College, saying the effort designed to impede Donald Trump's path to the White House is "a political stunt." U.S. District Judge Wiley Daniel denied a request for a preliminary injunction to nullify a state law that requires presidential electors to vote for the winner of the state's popular vote. To do otherwise, Daniel said in his ruling from the bench, "would undermine the electoral process."

Students remove Shakespeare portrait at UPenn and replace it with photo of black lesbian writer amid push for diversity at English department | 12 Dec 2016 | Students advocating for diversity at the University of Pennsylvania have taken down a portrait of William Shakespeare from a prominent location on campus and replaced it with a photograph of a black American writer. The wall-sized black-and-white image of the Bard was removed on Thursday from the Hayer Staircase at Fisher-Bennett Hall, which houses UPenn's English department, and delivered it to the office of an unsuspecting English professor and department chair Jed Esty. The students responsible for the stunt then replaced the portrait with a printout of a photograph depicting poet and novelist Audre Lorde, who died of breast cancer in 1992.

UK far-right group to be banned as 'terrorist organization' in historic move - reports | 11 Dec 21016 | British neo-Nazi group National Action is set to become the first ever in the UK to be put on a list of terrorist organizations and face a full ban, British media reported, citing government sources.

UK Diplomat: I've met the DNC WikiLeaks leaker and the person is an insider - not Russian

December 12, 2016 by legitgov

UK Diplomat: I've met the DNC WikiLeaks leaker and the person is an insider - not Russian | 11 Dec 2016 | In early November, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange told reporter John Pilger in an exclusive interview that it wasn't Russia who hacked into the DNC and Clinton staff emails. Today former UK ambassador to Uzbekistan, Craig Murray, who is a close associate of Julian Assange, said he has met the DNC leaker and he's not Russian. Via Craig Murray.org: "As Julian Assange has made crystal clear, the leaks did not come from the Russians. As I have explained countless times, they are not hacks, they are insider leaks – there is a major difference between the two. And it should be said again and again, that if Hillary Clinton had not connived with the DNC to fix the primary schedule to disadvantage Bernie, if she had not received advance notice of live debate questions to use against Bernie, if she had not accepted massive donations to the Clinton foundation and family members in return for foreign policy influence, if she had not failed to distance herself from some very weird and troubling people, then none of this would have happened. The continued ability of the mainstream media to claim the leaks lost Clinton the election because of 'Russia', while still never acknowledging the truths the leaks reveal, is Kafkaesque."

A Clinton Fan Manufactured Fake News That MSNBC Personalities Spread to Discredit WikiLeaks Docs

December 12, 2016 by legitgov

A Clinton Fan Manufactured Fake News That MSNBC Personalities Spread to Discredit WikiLeaks Docs | 09 Dec 2016 | The phrase "Fake News" has exploded in usage since the election, but the term is similar to other malleable political labels such as "terrorism" and "hate speech"; because the phrase lacks any clear definition, it is essentially useless except as an instrument of propaganda and censorship. The most important fact to realize about this new term: Those who most loudly denounce Fake News are typically those most aggressively disseminating it. One of the most egregious examples was the recent Washington Post article hyping a new anonymous group and its disgusting blacklist of supposedly pro-Russia news outlets -- a shameful article mindlessly spread by countless journalists [sic] who love to decry Fake News, despite the Post article itself being centrally based on Fake News...That the emails in the WikiLeaks archive were doctored or faked -- and thus should be disregarded -- was classic Fake News, spread not by Macedonian teenagers or Kremlin operatives but by established news outlets such as MSNBC, The Atlantic, and Newsweek...

Donald Trump rejects CIA Russia hacking report

December 11, 2016 by walden9

Donald Trump rejects CIA Russia hacking report | 11 Dec 2016 | President-elect Donald Trump has rejected as "ridiculous" a CIA assessment that Russian hackers tried to sway the election in his favour.

Mr Trump said it might have been Russia but it was impossible to know. "They have no idea if it's Russia or China or somebody sitting in a bed some place," he said.

Former Icelandic minister claims US sent 'planeload of FBI agents to frame Julian Assange' in 2011

Former Icelandic minister claims US sent 'planeload of FBI agents to frame Julian Assange' during mission to the country in 2011 | 11 Dec 2016 | A former Icelandic minister has claimed that the FBI attempted to frame Julian Assange during a mission to Iceland. Ögmundur Jonasson, who currently serves as a member of the Icelandic Parliament, said US authorities told him in June 2011 that hackers were trying to destroy software systems in the country. The authorities said there was an 'imminent attack' on Iceland's government databases and that the FBI would send agents to investigate... Jonasson said it was only when a 'planeload' of FBI agents arrived in August that he realized the true reason for their visit. The former minister claims the FBI was seeking Iceland's 'cooperation in what I understood as an operation set up to frame Julian Assange and WikiLeaks'. Jonasson said he immediately told the FBI agents to leave the country.
