Gholamali Abuhamzeh, a day after top Iranian military general Soleimani was wiped out by an airstrike at Baghdad International Airport.

Harvard hoisted by own petard as 'diversity' students protest decision to deny tenure to 'grievance studies' professor

Harvard hoisted by own petard as 'diversity' students protest decision to deny tenure to 'grievance studies' professor By CLG founder, Michael Rectenwald | 04 Jan 2020 |The US university is learning the hard way that the more concessions are given, the more are demanded, as its own proudly-advertised 'affirmative action' students are now trying to dictate which professors it should employ. Lorgia García Peña, currently an associate professor of Romance languages and literatures at Harvard and the supposed centerpiece of Harvard's fledging Ethnic Studies program, was denied tenure in late November 2019. Her popularity among Latinx and other minority students, who were baffled and shocked by the decision, has led to sit-ins and protests, and an open letter to university administrators demanding the reversal of the tenure denial, with similar faculties from around the country chiming in with their support...Unfortunately, the scholarship of Peña and other faculty in 'grievance studies' fields -- to use a controversial, but clearly-understood term -- can't be judged on anything like objective standards of excellence. That's because the disciplines are based on the supposed marginalization, exceptionalism, and peculiarity of the fields and those who study them, including both faculty and their students.

Government proposes release of Fukushima's radioactive water to sea or air

Government proposes release of Fukushima's radioactive water to sea or air --Radioactive water continues to accumulate as water used to keep the cores cool leaks from the damaged reactors and is stored in tanks | 23 Dec 2019 | Japan's economy and industry ministry proposed on Monday the gradual release or evaporation of massive amounts of treated but still radioactive water being stored at the tsunami-wrecked Fukushima nuclear plant. The proposal to a group of experts is the first time the ministry has narrowed down the various options available to those choices. It is meant to solve a growing problem for the plant's operator as storage space for the water runs out, despite fears of a backlash from the public.

Kaine introduces resolution to block war with Iran

Kaine introduces resolution to block war with Iran | 03 Jan 2020 | Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Va.), a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, on Friday introduced a resolution to block President Trump from further escalating hostilities with Iran. The resolution is privileged, which means Republicans cannot block it from reaching the floor, and comes the day after the surprise drone strike that killed Iraninan Gen. Qassem Soleimani, the leader of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps’s elite Quds Force... Kaine's resolution requires that any hostilities with Iran must be explicitly authorized by a congressional declaration of war or a specific authorization for the use of military force, though it does not prevent the United States from defending itself from imminent attack, according to a summary of the measure released by his office.

Fukushima operator accused of cover-up over radioactive water set to be poured into the Pacific

Fukushima operator accused of cover-up over radioactive water set to be poured into the Pacific | 19 Nov 2019 | The Japanese government has been accused of a cover-up after it refused to allow independent testing of water from the Fukushima power plant that is likely to be released into the Pacific Ocean. Officials at the industry ministry on Monday said the water stored at the crippled nuclear site was "safe" to release into the Pacific Ocean, despite concerns about radioactive material from environmental and citizens' groups. Following a recent visit to the plant, the Tokyo Electric Power Co (Tepco) told The Telegraph that concerns over security prevented independent testing... Tepco was forced to admit earlier this year that efforts to remove varying amounts of 62 radionuclides - including strontium, iodine, caesium and cobalt - from the water through the ALPS equipment had not been completely successful.

House, blue states ask Supreme Court to immediately review ObamaCare case

House, blue states ask Supreme Court to immediately review ObamaCare case | 03 Jan 2020 | The House and a group of Democratic-led states on Friday asked the Supreme Court to immediately review a lawsuit seeking to overturn ObamaCare. The Democratic-led House and the blue states asked for the Supreme Court to take up the case in its current term and hand down a decision before leaving in June, an unusually fast timeline. They argued that speed is necessary to remove the uncertainty hanging over the health care system and the millions of people who get health insurance from ObamaCare by resolving the case soon, rather than letting lower court proceedings play out for years.

6 killed in airstrike north of Baghdad targeting convoy carrying Shia militia members - report | 03 Jan 2020 | A convoy carrying members of Iraq's Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF), an umbrella group of Iran-backed militias, was hit by an airstrike while traveling in Baghdad, media reports say. The PMF said that medics were in the cars.

Six militiamen were reported killed in the attack, with three others critically injured. It remains unclear who carried out the strike.

3,500 more troops from Fort Bragg's 82nd Airborne Division to deploy to Middle East

3,500 more troops from Fort Bragg's 82nd Airborne Division to deploy to Middle East | 03 Jan 2020 | A U.S. official confirms to ABC News that approximately 3,500 more troops from Fort Bragg's 82nd Airborne Division will deploy to the Middle East, leaving the military installation as early as this weekend. The decision is in anticipation of a possible retaliatory attack by Iran or its proxies for a U.S. airstrike near Baghdad's airport that killed a top Iranian general who had been the architect of its interventions across the Middle East...The official indicated the troops would likely join the 750 soldiers from the 82nd who already arrived in Kuwait.

"At the direction of the president, the US military has taken decisive defensive action to protect US personnel abroad by killing Qasem Soleimani," the Pentagon said in a statement. The Pentagon said that the assassination was a response to "attacks on coalition bases in Iraq," accusing Soleimani of being the mastermind behind a recent spate of missile attacks on joint US and Iraqi military installations

The figures released by the agency focus on projects at Superfund sites, highlighting a backlog of work designed to clean up dangerous contamination.

Neocon Pundit Wishes Cancer on Trump, Ron Paul, and Pat Buchanan

Neocon Pundit Wishes Cancer on Trump, Ron Paul, and Pat Buchanan | 30 Dec 2019 | Like clockwork, a neoconservative writer resorts to smear tactics to sully right wing figures who dare challenge the status quo. Shay Khatiri, a writer for the neocon outlet the Bulwark and a fan of establishment darling [Deep State dirt-bag] Nikki Haley, recently tweeted about Ron Paul, Pat Buchanan, and Donald Trump and how there is "no justice in this world" because they're alive and well. He specifically tweeted, "John McCain, Charles Krauthammer, and now John Lewis get cancer. Ron Paul, Pat Buchanan, and Donald Trump are healthy. There is no justice in this world."

Heil Bandera: Ukrainian nationalists hold torchlight parade to celebrate Nazi collaborator's birthday | 01 Jan 2020 | Thousands of nationalists In Kiev have celebrated the New Year with torchlight parades in honor of Stepan Bandera, a WWII nationalist regarded by modern Ukrainians as a hero and by Poles, Jews and Russians as a war criminal. Blue-and-yellow Ukrainian national flags mingled with red-and-black banners of the Bandera's Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists (OUN) and its armed wing, the Ukrainian Insurgent Army (UPA), responsible for the mass murder and persecution in what is today western Ukraine, during the last years of the Second World War. [WHY is the US providing *any* aid to the Nazis running Ukraine?]

Iran-backed militiamen withdraw from siege of US Embassy in Baghdad as more American troops deployed | 01 Jan 2020 | The siege outside of the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad came to an end Wednesday afternoon after dozens of pro-Iran militiamen and their supporters withdrew from the compound.

FBI, NYPD upping security at large local Jewish gatherings this week

FBI, NYPD upping security at large local Jewish gatherings this week | 30 Dec 2019 | The FBI and NYPD are beefing up security at two large local Jewish events this week in the wake of recent anti-Semitic violence in the area, law-enforcement sources told The Post on Monday. “Everybody's on edge," a source said. "There will be a heavy law-enforcement presence of both the FBI and police because of everything going on upstate and in Brooklyn." The source was referring to Saturday's machete attack on a Hanukkah gathering in Monsey in Rockland County and the slew of anti-Semitic attacks in the city, mainly in heavily Jewish enclaves in Brooklyn, during the holiday last week.

Grafton, 37, is charged with five counts of obstructing the free exercise of religious beliefs by attempting to kill with a dangerous weapon and causing injuries, according to the Associated Press. The complaint alleges that after storming inside on Saturday night, Grafton, who had a scarf covering his face, declared that "no one is leaving," took out a machete and started slashing and stabbing people, AP said.

Google Marxism: Internet Ideology and the Academics Who Perpetuate It

Google Marxism: Internet Ideology and the Academics Who Perpetuate It --Presented as the opening lecture of the Libertarian Scholars Conference hosted by the Mises Institute. 30 September 2019. --By [CLG Founder] Michael Rectenwald | 30 Dec 2019 | "Big Digital" consists of an array of business, political, and social interests, an ensemble of technology companies and Internet services, including but not limited to the Big Four: Alphabet (Google, YouTube, etc.) Amazon, Apple, and Facebook. Big Digital wields enormous economic and political power, presiding over Big Data, and serving as the chief arbiter of expression, with the power to effect the digital deletion of "dangerous" persons from its various platforms, as the gulag was the means to physically disappear dissidents and other thought criminals from "normal" life in the Soviet Union.

American Airstrikes Rally Iraqis Against U.S.

American Airstrikes Rally Iraqis Against U.S. --Iraqi leaders say the United States violated Iraqi sovereignty with attacks that killed 24 people in retaliation for the death of an American contractor. | 30 Dec 2019 | Iraq has been caught for years in a tug of war between its two most powerful patrons, the United States and Iran... But American airstrikes that killed two dozen members of an Iranian-backed militia over the weekend have now made Washington the focus of public hostility, reducing the heat on Tehran and its [alleged] proxies. Iraqi leaders accused the United States on Monday of violating Iraq's sovereignty and expressed fear that increasing tensions between the United States and Iran could escalate into a proxy war on Iraqi soil. Even the tenor of the street protests has shifted, as anti-Iranian slogans have given way to anti-American ones. Demonstrators and others attacked what they deemed to be America’s disproportionate response -- the killing of 24 militiamen on Sunday in retaliation for the death of an American contractor on Friday.

Kansas police officer fabricated story of expletive written on coffee up, chief says | 30 Dec 2019 | A police officer made up a story about having "f---ing pig" written on his coffee cup at a McDonald's in Junction City, Kansas, as a joke, his chief said Monday. The admission comes after the chief wrote in a now-deleted Facebook post that the incident was a "black eye" on the city on Sunday, which forced the store's manager to issue a denial saying that video surveillance footage showed the incident did not occur in the store. Herington Police Chief Brian Hornaday said at a press conference Monday that the issue had turned into a "black eye" on his department, according to Kansas.com.

'I'm slowly dying here': 'Sedated' Assange tells friend during Christmas Eve call from UK prison as health concerns mount | 31 Dec 2019 | Julian Assange sounded like a shell of the man he once was during a Christmas Eve phone call, British journalist Vaughan Smith told RT, noting the WikiLeaks founder had trouble speaking and appeared to be drugged. Assange was allowed to make just a single call from the maximum security Belmarsh prison in southeast London for the Christmas holiday, hoping for a reminder of the world beyond his drab confines of steel and concrete...Though Assange didn't say it out loud during the call, Smith said he believes the anti-secrecy activist is being sedated, noting that "It seemed pretty obvious that he was," and said others who visited Assange were of the same opinion.

Joe Biden backtracks, says he would comply with impeachment subpoena | 29 Dec 2019 | After declaring he would refuse to comply with a subpoena in President Trump's impeachment trial, Joe Biden backtracked and said he would testify if hauled before Senate lawmakers. The former vice president on Saturday sought to clarify the comments he made on Friday when he told the Des Moines Register's editorial board that the grounds to call him were "specious" and said the focus needed to stay on Trump.

Hunter Biden missing from Joe Biden's Christmas family photo

Hunter Biden missing from Joe Biden's Christmas family photo | 26 Dec 2019 | Joe Biden shared a heartfelt greeting on Christmas -- but it was the family picture accompanying it that said a thousand words.

Federal Legal Age to Buy Tobacco Products Officially Raised to 21

Federal Legal Age to Buy Tobacco Products Officially Raised to 21 | 23 Dec 2019| On Friday, President Donald Trump signed a $1.4 trillion spending package that, on top of many things, raises the federal legal age for purchasing tobacco from 18 to 21. Beginning in the summer of 2020, it will be a violation of federal law to sell tobacco to anyone under the age of 21. Since the 1990s, federal law mandated the legal age to purchase tobacco be at least 18. The law also encompasses e-cigarettes and vaping cartridge, not just traditional tobacco products like cigarettes and cigars, adding regulation to an industry that, as TIME's Jamie Ducharme writes, "has proliferated largely unchecked."
