Liberal math, pay $500,000 to CGI AND use students to raise $60,000 more…

Via Campus Reform:

While Arizona State University has almost doubled its tuition over the past 10 years amid claims that it needs more state money, the school somehow had the funds to give half a million dollars to the Clinton Foundation.

According to The Arizona Republic, the public university paid $500,000 to the Clinton Foundation to host the former president-Bill Clinton; former-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton; and their daughter, Chelsea, during a Clinton Global Initiative University (CGI U) event in 2014. Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Bill’s wife, is the current front-runner for the Democratic nomination for the 2016 presidential race.

Anti-Police Group Claims NYPD Arrests For “Manspreading” Are Racist…

Via New Yorker:

The NYPD has found a new Broken Windows crime, and it’s being a man and taking up too much room on the subway. The feminists win again!

Gothamist writes that according to a new Police Reform Organizing Project report:

On a recent visit to the arraignment part in Brooklyn’s criminal court, PROP volunteers observed that police officers had arrested two Latino men on the charge of “man spreading” on the subway, presumably because they were taking up more than one seat and therefore inconveniencing other riders. Before issuing an [adjournment contemplating dismissal] for both men, the judge expressed her skepticism about the charge because of the time of the arrests: “12:11AM, I can’t believe there were many people on the subway”

Marilyn Mosby Wasn’t In Favor Of Giving ‘Space To Destroy’ When It Came To Her Own Property In Appearance On ‘Judge Judy’…

Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake made the phrase famous by stating that she was giving rioters ‘space to destroy’when they rioted on April 27th. Police claimed she held them back, among other claims was that she said,”it’s just property”. Millions of dollars in damage and 100 injured cops followed this foolishness.

While Rawlings-Blake was giving rioters space to destroy, Marilyn Mosby was actually cheering them on, in such speeches as after her Freddie Gray announcement where she encourages them, saying, “our time is now”.

But back when Mosby was 20, she took more of a dim view of looters and property destroyers, when a man broke into her college apartment, occupying it while she was away and causing damages. She went on ‘Judge Judy’ to mediate the dispute and won, as you can see in the video above.

NY Democrats Attempting To Play ‘Bedroom Police’, Criminalize Normal Sexual Interactions On Campus…

Yet, they accuse Republicans of wanting to control you…

Via NY Post:

Emma Sulkowicz graduated from Columbia College last week, lugging her mattress under one arm as she reached for her degree with the other.

Some classmates cheered Sulkowicz — the self-proclaimed poster woman for the fight against sexual assault — for carrying around the mattress on which she was allegedly raped.

Never mind that her charges against a male classmate couldn’t stick, even under Columbia’s kangaroo-court standards. New York’s Democrats are embracing Sulkowicz and her cause.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo is pushing for passage of what he calls “the toughest law in the nation” against campus sexual violence.

It would make campuses in New York a hostile environment for young men. One misstep and they could find themselves accused of “sexual assault,” denied a fair hearing, expelled and unemployable.

The law would apply at all private colleges in the state, extending regulations that Cuomo has already imposed on the state university system.
Everyone should want to prevent rape. But Cuomo’s bill criminalizes normal sexual interactions.

The bill requires “affirmative consent” at each step of the way when two students have sexual contact. Amazingly, that means punishing students who fail to ask “May I unbutton your blouse?” and “May I kiss you?” and wait for the answer. On May 20, Cuomo said there has to be “clear, unambiguous and voluntary agreement” before any “specific sexual activity.”

Obama: “Best Climate Scientists” Link Hurricanes To Climate Change

fema

Except they don’t.

Via The Hill:

President Obama said Thursday the link between more extreme weather and climate change is undeniable and that the world’s best scientists have made a conclusive connection.

Rising sea levels are another consequence of climate change and can make extreme weather even worse, Obama said at the National Hurricane Center following a tour.

“The best climate scientists in the world are telling us that extreme weather events like hurricanes are likely to become more powerful. When you combine stronger storms with rising seas, that’s a recipe for more devastating floods,” he said.

Obama’s remarks came during a visit to the center, whose meterologists are predicting a “below-normal” Atlantic Ocean hurricane season, with three to six storms likely.

New York Times Passed On Obamacare Architect Jonathan Gruber Bombshell…

NYT

Hmm, I wonder why?

Via Washington Examiner:

The New York Times had first shot in 2014 at the video of Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber mocking the “stupidity of the American voter,” but took a pass.

Though the Times eventually followed up on reports of the MIT economist’s now-infamous remarks on the passage of the Affordable Care Act, it did so only after they had generated a national scandal.

Times’ reporter Robert Pear was the “first real journalist” that tipster Rich Weinstein contacted with the newly unearthed footage, he told the Washington Examiner.

Weinstein met Pear at a conference in Washington, D.C., when he was trying to find a reporter who he could tip off to a separate Obamacare issue involving contracts between the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services and CGI Federal, the company that was brought on to build healthcare.gov.

“Nobody would listen to me,” Weinstein said, explaining that his earlier attempts to connect with media had been mostly unsuccessful. “So I was trying to contact journalists directly because I had this stuff.”

Having met Pear on Oct. 30 at a Cato Institute conference, titled “Pruitt, Halbig, King & Indiana: Is Obamacare Once Again Headed to the Supreme Court,” he followed up on the contact.

“I sent [Pear] an email telling him he should look at these videos I found,” he said, noting that he discovered the footage of Gruber’s now-infamous “stupidity” remarks on Nov. 2.

Weinstein showed the Examiner an email to Pear dated Nov. 9 including a link to the Gruber video and reading, “Thought you’d be interested in this.”

Pear, who had just two days earlier reported on separate Gruber comments regarding state health care exchanges, responded to the email, asking, “would you happen to the know the time and place of the panel discussion?”

Weinstein provided details of the 2013 health care event and the Times reporter answered with a simple, “thank you.”

That was the end of their communication, Weinstein said. Pear never followed up on their conversation and he never wrote about the tip.

Fortunately for the public record, conservative activist group American Commitment found the footage that Weinstein had circulated on social media and uploaded it to YouTube Nov. 7. The Daily Signal found it there and published it Nov. 9 with an article titled “Caught on Camera: Obamacare Architect Admits Deceiving Americans to Pass Law.”

MSNBC, HuffPo, Other Media Link Texas Floods To Climate Change…

chris-matthews

Nobody could see this coming from a mile away…

Via Newsbusters:

Despite media denials that “specific weather events” can be linked to overall climate patterns, that is exactly what several major news outlets have done in the wake of deadly floods in Texas.

MSNBC, Huffington Post, The Dallas Morning News and other media have suggested global warming played a role in the torrential rain and consequent, deadly flooding in Texas during Memorial Day weekend. A year earlier many were blaming Texas’ drought on global warming.

MSNBC host Chris Matthews made this link during Hardball With Chris Matthews May 26. He cited the National Climate Assessment, claiming that “climate change contributes to harsh climate conditions like the flooding in Texas and drought in California happening right now.”

He failed to admit that the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) released a report in December 2014 that said the opposite regarding global warming and droughts in California. The report instead attributed the drought primarily to a La Nina weather pattern.

Matthews also interviewed Columbia University Earth Institute Director Jeffrey Sachs, a man-made global warming alarmist. He said that “underlying warming of the sea surface and the land” led to “tragedies” like the flooding in Texas.

Sachs is a long-time crony of left-wing billionaire George Soros. His “Millennium Village Project” received $50 million from Soros in 2008. Soros pledged in 2011 to contribute an additional $27 million during the next five years.

Fun Fact Of The Day: Bernie Sanders Honeymooned In The Soviet Union…

Yes, really.

Via MSNBC:

[Bernie] Sanders married his current wife, Jane, in May of 1988 and the next day left for their “romantic honeymoon” to Yaroslavl, in the then-Soviet Union. The trip was an official delegation from Burlington to cement the two cities’ sister-city relationship. “Trust me. It was a very strange honeymoon,” Sanders writes.

He also visited Cuba with Jane in 1989 and tried to meet with Fidel Castro, but it didn’t work out and he met with the mayor of Havana and other officials instead.

Sanders is proud of Burlington’s international diplomacy efforts. “Burlington had a foreign policy because, as progressives, we understood that we all live in one world,” he writes.

Report: Insufferable Left-Wing Hack Writer Max Blumenthal Helped Craft Hillary’s “Youtube Video” Benghazi Explanation…

Max-Blumenthal-558-X-509

In case you didn’t already know, this pipsqueak is the son of Sidney Blumenthal. We reported earlier today that Sidney was paid $10K per month by the Clinton Foundation to secretly advise Hillary on Libya.

Via Daily Caller:

Left-wing writer Max Blumenthal helped inspire Hillary Clinton’s debunked talking point that an obscure YouTube movie called “Innocence of Muslims” was responsible for the deadly terrorist attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya in 2012.

The son of Clinton’s longtime political adviser and informal Libya consultant, Max Blumenthal pushed his conspiratorial theories onto the secretary of state in the hours after Ambassador Chris Stevens and three others were killed.

The Daily Caller reported in December that Hillary Clinton received the “Youtube video” talking points before the rest of the Obama administration. Clinton was the first administration official to suggest that the violence in Benghazi was caused by spontaneous reaction to the anti-Muslim video, rather than by a terrorist group affiliated with al-Qaida.

Clinton first mentioned the video publicly on the morning of Sept. 13, 2012. Obama’s White House speechwriter Ben Rhodes, an NYU-educated fiction writer who was initially blamed for crafting the talking points, didn’t mention the video until Sept. 14, when he sent around a memo preparing Susan Rice and others for Sunday-show appearances to discuss the attack.

Now we know that Hillary became aware of the video on Sept. 12, the day after the attack, through her political adviser Sidney Blumenthal — Max Blumenthal’s father.

Sidney Blumenthal served as the Clintons’ political hatchet man during the Monica Lewinsky scandal, helping to tar Lewinsky’s credibility…

Caveman scared of rock cat, caveman make rock cat into much smaller rock cats.

Via Daily Mail:

Militants fighting for the Islamic State have reportedly destroyed a famous statue of a lion in the captured city of Palmyra – despite promising locals they would not obliterate the ancient city.

Following their capture of Palmyra last Thursday, ISIS militants are understood to have won the support of much of the local population by promising not to destroy the city’s famous monuments.

But it appears that promise was too much for the jihadis to keep, with eyewitnesses claiming they destruction of millenia-old Statues and buildings is already very much under way, with the most significant loss so far being the celebrated Lion of Al-Lat, which dates back to the first century AD.

The lion statue was destroyed by ISIS militants on Saturday, according to the International Business Time, who quoted eyewitnesses on the ground in Palmyra.

‘I heard a loud noise, so I went up to the roof to see what is going on,’ one local man said.

‘I saw Daash crushing the ‘god lion’ statue with construction machines. There were many other crushed statues but I could not recognise the rest of them because they were totally ruined,’ he added, using an Arabic acronym for the terror group.

Baltimore Riots Will Cost The City AT LEAST $20 Million…And They Want 75% Of It Paid By American Taxpayers…

crop_358Suspect_Dies_Baltimore-0a556-1024x683

All of the estimates aren’t even in yet…

Via Truth Revolt:

According to the Baltimore Sun, estimates put the cost of the city’s riots around $20M…so far.

The $20 million figure includes expenses for police and firefighter overtime, damage to city-owned property and payment to other jurisdictions that assisted with policing duties.

Baltimore’s finance director, Henry J. Raymond, said that the city can cover the costs from its rainy day fund, but that it is only a temporary solution and that they are planning on requesting up to 75 percent reimbursement from the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

That’s right, Baltimore wants 75% of the costs of the rioting to fall on the backs of the American taxpayer.

Anti-Putin Russian Opposition Leader Hospitalized With Sudden And Mysterious Illness…

It’s probably just a sheer coincidence, right? They DEFINITELY don’t have a history of poisoning opposition in Russia…

It takes some serious balls being an opposition leader in Russia with their track record.

Via AP:

MOSCOW (AP) — A Russian opposition leader is in intensive care in a Moscow hospital, and a lack of clarity about the cause of his sudden illness has raised fears of foul play.

The First City Hospital said 33-year-old Vladimir Kara-Murza remained in grave condition Thursday, two days after he was admitted. The Interfax news agency, citing the hospital’s chief doctor, said he appeared to be suffering from pancreatitis and double pneumonia.

His father, a prominent journalist also named Vladimir, told Interfax that doctors haven’t ruled out foul play, but there was no evidence that his son had been deliberately poisoned.

Kara-Murza was a close associate of opposition leader Boris Nemtsov, who was assassinated in February, and works with a civic organization founded by Mikhail Khodorkovsky, the former oil tycoon and Kremlin opponent.

Weird: Sen. Bernie Sanders Allegedly Wrote Women “Fantasize About Being Raped” In A 1972 Essay…

We’d never hear the end of it, if a Republican wrote this.

Via MRCTV:

In a 1972 essay, presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-VT) opined that men fantasized about women being abused. He also claimed that women fantasized about being gang raped.

In an article entitled “Men-And-Women,” published in an alternative newspaper called the “Vermont Freeman” Sanders shared his thoughts on male and female sexuality in ways that would cause a media firestorm if it had been penned by any current GOP candidate. Even one with as little chance at grabbing his party’s nomination as Sanders currently has.

“A man goes home and masturbates his typical fantasy,” wrote Sanders. “A woman on her knees. A woman tied up. A woman abused.”

Sanders didn’t specify as to how he had gained such a deep understanding of the male psyche.

In terms of his understanding of female sexual fantasies, Sanders provided similar insight.

“A woman enjoys intercourse with her man–as she fantasizes about being raped by 3 men simultaneously.”

Clemson Football Coach Succumbs To LGBT Pressure; Cancels Appearance At Christian Foundation Fundraiser…

This is getting out of control. With that said, pretty weak move on his part…

Via Truth Revolt:

Under pressure from LGBT groups and the South Carolina House minority leader, Clemson University Head Football Coach Dabo Swinney has announced that he will no longer attend a fundraiser held by a Christian nonprofit organization.

The June 2 fundraiser will be hosted by the Palmetto Family Council, a South Carolina-based Christian nonprofit which describes itself as dedicated to promoting “biblical principles,” particularly “the values and virtues of marriage, the traditional family model, and sexual purity.” The group supports traditional marriage, endorsed the state’s partial birth abortion law, and is dedicated to promoting religious freedom.

Swinney was to be honored at the fundraiser for his work with his own All In Foundation, which focuses on raising awareness around the state about health issues. Though Swinney explained that he had not official association with the Palmetto Family Council and was attending on behalf of all involved in the work of his foundation, the uproar from gay rights activists had made attending too much of a “distraction.”

“I appreciate the recognition of my and the foundation’s efforts,” Swinney said. “However, after much thought, in order to avoid a distraction for the team and the entire football program, I’ve decided it is in the best interests of all involved that I not attend the event on June 2.”

“It was my understanding that the nomination and selection for this award was based on the work done by our All In Foundation and the difference it is making in our community,” explained Swinney. “My acceptance of this award was to be on behalf of all the volunteers that make our foundation a success. The work of our foundation is intended to build a better community and be a positive influence.”

“Recently, my scheduled participation in this event has been perceived incorrectly as an endorsement of certain viewpoints and has entered the political arena. I have been out of town since last Thursday and am disappointed that this has become a distraction for me, my team and many others. I have been and continue to be very open about my personal beliefs. However, I do not inject those beliefs or the work of the foundation into the political process.”
