#5  ...Interesting situation - Oberlin actually has an $887M USD endowment, and even a worst case verdict would barely scratch that. The problem is that endowments tend to be reserved for specific purposes by the endowers. I don't think there's any legal barriers to them using endowment money to pay the damages, but first, they need to get permission to use said money from the people who donated it. Second, it sets a really, really bad precedent as far as using the money for 'emergencies'.

#8  Bad things happen when educators forget that students are vermin.

The "educators" are vermin, trying to pass that along to their pliable mush brain "students." It's all a self-contained, self-absorbed cult. We will be hearing about how this decision is "chilling" to free speech from the same people who work overtime to chill free speech to absolute zero when they don't like what's being said.

Loren Visser lays it out in the first 50 seconds of this clip from Blood Simple.

#10  The students start out innocent when the go into kindergarten. It's the educational system that turns them into vermin.

Italy sacks Intel chiefs over Mifsud-Brennan Russia Hoax fiasco
[COMMDIGINEWS] The Prime Minister of Italia has fired two of the countries most powerful intelligence chiefs in a major shake-up. It was directly attributed to their participation with John Brennan and the CIA in using Joseph Mifsud to set up George Papadopoulos as a pretext for launching the great Russia Hoax of 2016.

The use of Italian intelligence agencies to spy on members of the Trump campaign have roiled the internal workings of the Italian government at the highest levels. Simply put, Joseph Mifsud, who is represented in the Mueller report on page one as a "Russian agent", is actually a senior Italian intelligence asset.

He works with British intelligence, the CIA and the FBI. Mifsud trains intelligence agents at a center for advanced intel studies in the hills above Rome. He is living there now. His rent is paid for by the institute.

This is the mysterious "Russian agent" that is at the very center of the "official" explanation of the origins of the Mueller probe.

The FBI Just Dropped New Documents On Hillary Clinton And They Are Really Bad
[RedState] Late Friday night, we got a document dump from the FBI dealing with the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s illegal email server.

While we’ve already gotten ample evidence that she absolutely should have been charged for her mishandling of classified information, these latest revelations are still pretty mind-blowing. After you read them, you are left asking yourself how it was possible that she wasn’t indicted.

Well, we know why.

#6  There's one reason they don't like term limits. Who's going to donate if you can't run again?

Term limits. Donations capped at $200 / person / year. No PACs. No corporate money. Any "war chest" remainder goes to pay down the national debt. lifetime ban on revolving door lobbyist jobs. Skip-a-generation rule to prevent political dynasties. No paid speeches. No book deals.

Ninth Circuit 3-judge panel dismisses suit against constructing the Keystone XL Pipeline
[AMERICANTHINKER] The legal debris field has been cleared and the objections of Native American and environmentalist special interest groups nullified by a three-judge panel of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. The Washington Post reports:

A three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Thursday ordered dismissal of the lawsuit by environmental and Native American groups, saying President Donald Trump
...New York real estate developer, described by Dems as illiterate, racist, misogynistic, and what ever other unpleasant descriptions they can think of, elected by the rest of us as 45th President of the United States...
had revoked a 2017 permit allowing the $8 billion pipeline to be built.

Trump later issued a new permit, and the appellate judges agreed with Justice Department attorneys who say that nullifies the legal challenge involving environmental impacts.

#1  Next stop would be in camera, then nothing changes, on to SCOTUS. The thing could be built an in operation by then, but for ai injunction from some other rogue judge. At what point do judges start to resent other judges second guessing them?

#2  The Ninth Circuit. Who'd a thunk it?

It's really good to see Trump's judicial appointments finally making a difference.

Also, maybe this will help quench the environmentalists' and other leftists' insatiable appetite for lawfare. We can hope.

2020 Democrats call to end ban on gay men donating blood
[INDEPENDENT.CO.UK] ‘Our blood screening policies must be based on 21st century medical evidence, not outdated biases about which populations carry more risk of HIV transmission’

#1  It's a DWEM science anyway!
Posted by: g(r)omgoru || 06/09/2019 8:39 Comments || Top||

#2  OK, let's think this through. The Dems hired a consultant who ran some focus groups from which the consultant concluded that putting this position out there would help them take votes away from Trump. This is consistent with the basic Dem position that "Trump is a moron who is outsmarting us at every fork in the road."

#3  And later having the blood tested will be alleged to be cause of global warming, somehow.

#4  Funny how 21st century medical evidence becomes admissible for this but becomes patriarchal fascism when applied to abortion of late term pregnancies.
