Someone Hung A ‘White Male Privilege Is A Myth’ Poster Next To A ‘Dismantle Whiteness’ Mural At USC

Snowflakes experience a meltdown.

Via The College Fix:

Someone hung a “White Male Privilege Is A Myth” poster next to the “Dismantle Whiteness” art exhibit recently installed at the University of Southern California.

Guess which one is still up? If you said “Dismantle Whiteness,” you are correct.

The recently installed “DISMANTLE WHITENESS AND MISOGYNY ON THIS CAMPUS” ceiling message is one part of a larger art display at an entrance to the Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism building. The piece also includes large sketch drawings of four women of color on walls flanking the doorway.

The mural was designed by the feminist artist collective When Women Disrupt in conjunction with students in the class “Women: Designing Media for Social Change.”

“The installation is intended to spark dialogue,” communications Professor Alison Trope has said in a statement to The College Fix about the exhibit.

Yet, when someone else wanted to spark some dialogue with a counter-protest exhibit of sorts, that was quickly removed.

Breaking: Office Of The Inspector General Issues Criminal Referral On Andrew McCabe

Their report indicates he lied multiple times to the FBI, as well as improperly leaked to media. They can’t prosecute or punish him because they don’t have the criminal power and he’s retired so they can’t punish him. So they’re referring him for prosecution to the US attorney in D.C.

Cuomo Signs Executive Order Granting Parolees The Right To Vote

Cuomo is covering his bases against challenger Cynthia Nixon.

Via NY Post:

Appealing to his left flank, Gov. Cuomo announced Wednesday that he’s signed an executive order to give convicted felons on parole the right to vote.

“In this state, when you’re released from prison and you’re on parole, you still don’t have the right to vote,” Cuomo said at the National Action Network’s conference in midtown.

“Now how can that be? You did your time. You paid your debt. You’re released, but you still don’t have a right to vote.”

The order will cover more than 36,000 parolees statewide.

More than half — 54 percent — live in New York City, according to the state Department of Corrections and Community Supervision.

The governor, a Democrat who faces a primary challenge from actress Cynthia Nixon, said his administrative action was necessary because the Republican-led state Senate has refused to pass a law to restore voting rights to parolees who’ve served their time.

Under current state law, parolees can’t vote until they’re off supervision.

Comey Admits He Lied And Attacks McCabe For Lying

Comey Friend Hints Forthcoming Report Could Be damning For Loretta Lynch

And if Comey told Wittes, his good friend, any classified information about Lynch, that’s another violation. But at this point, why has it not been revealed what this conflicting information about Lynch is?

Via Washington Examiner:

A “good friend” of former FBI Director James Comey’s said he is “very much” looking forward to what the upcoming Justice Department inspector general report on the Clinton email investigation has to say about former Attorney General Loretta Lynch — the former Obama administration official now engaged in a war of words with Comey.

Benjamin Wittes, editor in chief of Lawfare, wrote at length Wednesday about the backstory of Comey’s new tell-all memoir, A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership. While he said Comey isn’t without blame for how he handled the FBI’s investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s unauthorized private email server, he said the consideration of other decision-makers, “particularly Lynch,” paint a full picture for those people who believe the probe was a “train wreck” that cost Clinton the 2016 presidential election.

Noting the “selective outrage” against Comey for announcing the case was reopened less than two weeks before the election, Wittes said, “Lynch was a compromised figure with respect to the emails ‘matter.'”

The mention of a “matter” is a reference to Comey’s testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee last year, in which he said Lynch requested he minimize Clinton’s email investigation, urging him to call it a “matter” instead of an “investigation.”

Wittes described how Lynch appeared to be “only too happy to have Comey fall on this particular grenade,” in reference to how, according to Comey’s book, Lynch told him, “Try to look beat up” about the renewed email probe.

Did Hogg And Parkland Activists Generate More Youth Registering To Vote? Not So Much

Via Tampa Bay Times:

University of Tampa junior Casey Bauer believes this is the year that his peers will make a difference at the polls.

But just last week he struggled for the attention of fellow college students during a registration drive, even with his offer of bacon-sprinkled mini-donuts.

“Sorry, I’m carb free,” a University of Tampa student said as she hustled by Bauer, also a field organizer for the progressive NextGen America.

Gun violence and a polarizing president may have spurred more activism among millenials and in the subsequent Generation Z. But so far it isn’t generating new voters in Florida.

Across six of the seven largest counties, there were 4,500 fewer registrations among 16- to 25-year-olds compared to the same point in 2014. The largest county, Miami-Dade, could not provide historical data for registrations.

Watch: Louis Farrakhan Gives Insane Lecture Linking Star Of David To Sexual Immorality

Lunatic Louie.

Via Daily Wire:

A bizarre and disturbingly anti-Semitic lecture about the Star of David posted in 2016 has resurfaced online. Louis Farrakhan, the 84-year-old head of the Nation of Islam, links the Jewish symbol to the Biblical mark of the beast and sexual immorality.

Farrakhan presents the image of the Star of David on a screen and makes note of the six triangles. “Each angle in an equilateral triangle has how many degrees?” he asks, smiling. “60,” reply audience members in unison, much to Farrakhan’s delight. “So, the Bible says, count the number of a beast, for it is the number of a man,” he notes.

After connecting the Star of David to the mark of the beast, the anti-Semitic minister gives a tutorial on how the Jewish symbol, when superimposed over the body, illustrates sexual immorality.

The top triangle, he says, relates to “spiritual wisdom,” but the bottom triangle is another story.

Poll: Hillary Clinton’s Popularity Has Plummeted Since Election

But she still thinks she’s going to run again.

Via Daily Caller:

Hillary Clinton’s popularity has taken a sharp downward turn since the 2016 election, according to a poll released this week by The Wall Street Journal and NBC News.

The poll indicates that only 27 percent of those asked viewed her somewhat favorably — compared to 30 percent last August. An average of polls rated her favorability at 42.3 percent in November of 2016.

In contrast, her unfavorable rating has remained virtually unchanged in the 18 months since the election. Compared to 54.4 percent who viewed Clinton negatively in November of 2016, the new poll shows 52 percent having an unfavorable view of her.

Feds Expose Network That Smuggled Illegal Aliens From Syria Through Mexico To The U.S.

Build the wall.

Via Washington Times:

The Treasury Department slapped sanctions Wednesday on a Syrian man and his criminal syndicate, blaming them for smuggling “hundreds” of illegal immigrants from Syria and Lebanon into Mexico and then helping them to jump the border into the U.S.

Nasif Barakat and his syndicate, which authorities labeled the Barakat Transnational Criminal Organization, charged about $20,000 to complete the smuggling. The money paid for bribes and for fake documents, including false European passports, to help illegal immigrants hide their identities. The fees also covered transportation from Syria through other Middle Eastern countries to South and Central America, the journey north through Mexico, and final help sneaking into the U.S.

Authorities said the sanctions will freeze the syndicate’s assets, which should undermine the smuggling operation.

The case has been pursued by the Treasury Department, Homeland Security and the Justice Department.

“The day I was sworn in as attorney general, President Trump sent me an Executive Order to dismantle transnational criminal organizations,” said Attorney General Jeff Sessions. “Many of these organizations use human smugglers to bring people across our borders with little regard to their safety or our national sovereignty.”

Mr. Barakat, who also goes by the name Abu Tarif and lists two dates of birth in 1970 and 1971, was based in Homs.

The Treasury Department said his network would recruit customers from Syria and Lebanon, send them through either Turkey or the United Arab Emirates, where they would catch flights to Brazil, then make their way north through Venezuela, Colombia and Panama, then up through Central America and Mexico.

That turns out to be a common route for people being smuggled from terrorist-connected countries.

He Will Not Be Missed: Comey Quits Republican Party Over Trump…

Via The Hill:

Former FBI Director James Comey in a new interview railed against the Republican Party, saying he thinks the GOP has lost its way.

“The Republican Party has left me and many others,” Comey, who was a registered Republican for most of his life, said during an interview on the ABC News podcast “Start Here” when asked whether he still considers himself a Republican in his “heart of hearts.”

“I just think they’ve lost their way and I can’t be associated with it.”

Comey said he saw the change in the party take place starting with President Trump‘s campaign. He said the GOP has continued to change over the course of the Trump presidency.

“These people don’t represent anything that I believe in,” he said.

He added that he thinks the Republican Party now reflects “entirely Donald Trump’s values.”

Tennessee Lawmakers Hits Memphis For Removing Confederate Statues With $250,000 Budget Cut

Paying the consequences for their actions.

Via Commercial Appeal:

House lawmakers on Tuesday approved a last-minute amendment to remove $250,000 allocated to the city of Memphis as punishment for the removal of Confederate monuments.

The amendment, which was approved with a 56-31 vote, was introduced as a result of Memphis officials’ decision to remove two controversial statues on public property last year.

After being denied a waiver by the state Historical Commission to remove the statues, Memphis sold two public parks in December to a nonprofit, which then removed statues of Confederate Gen. Nathan Bedford Forrest and Confederate President Jefferson Davis.

Rep. Steve McDaniel, R-Parkers Crossroads, who has been an outspoken advocate for the preservation of historical monuments, sponsored the amendment.

“What this amendment does is it removes $250,000 from the budget that is designated to go to the city of Memphis for their bicentennial celebration,” he said on the House floor. “If you recall, back in December, Memphis did something that removed historical markers in the city. It was the city of Memphis that did this, and it was full knowing it was not the will of the legislature.”

During Tuesday’s floor session, Democrats argued the amendment was vindictive. Rep. Antonio Parkinson, D-Memphis, called it the most “vile, racist” effort he had seen and said Republicans viewed Forrest “as if he was God.”

Rep. Raumesh Akbari, D-Memphis, called the amendment “un-Christian.”

“This amendment and the explanation is hateful, it is unkind, it is un-Christian and it is unfair,” she said. “Memphis is a city in this state, and I am sick of people in this House acting like it’s not.”

New York Attorney General Wants Power To Bypass Trump Pardons

Dems are getting petty and trying to change laws to hit political opponents.

NEW YORK (Reuters) – New York’s attorney general on Wednesday asked Governor Andrew Cuomo and state legislators to give him and other local prosecutors power to bring criminal charges against people pardoned by U.S. President Donald Trump.

In a letter, Attorney General Eric Schneiderman urged Cuomo and legislative leaders to close a loophole in New York’s double jeopardy law shielding recipients of presidential pardons from state prosecution.

A change could make it more difficult for Trump associates or others who might be pardoned to escape criminal prosecution, even if special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into possible Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election were curbed or shut down.

The president has no constitutional power to pardon state crimes, but Schneiderman said the current law means defendants pardoned for serious federal crimes could be freed from “all accountability” under state criminal law.

Schneiderman, a Democrat in his eighth year as attorney general, has made his office a central figure in blue state challenges to Trump, tangling with the Republican president on such matters as consumer finance, the environment, immigration and the 2020 census.

The White House had no immediate comment. The offices of Cuomo, a Democrat, and state Senate Majority Leader John Flanagan, a Republican, did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

State Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie, a Democrat, said “we will take a close look” at the “serious” issue. Democratic state senator Todd Kaminsky tweeted a plan to introduce a bill to close the loophole.

Double jeopardy laws prevent people from being tried twice for the same crime, and New York law affords protection in state proceedings to people prosecuted in federal court.

Schneiderman said New York’s law has a dozen exceptions, but none when a defendant receives a presidential pardon.

“By closing New York’s double jeopardy loophole, lawmakers can ensure that no one accused of breaking New York’s laws will escape accountability merely because of a strategically-timed presidential pardon,” Schneiderman said in a statement.

House Hacking Suspects’ Father Transferred Data To Pakistani Government, Ex-Partner Claims

FAISALABAD, Pakistan — The father of Imran Awan — an IT aide to Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz who investigators concluded made “unauthorized access” to House servers — transferred a USB drive to a Pakistani senator and former head of a Pakistani intelligence agency, the father’s ex-business partner, Rashid Minhas, alleged.

Minhas told The Daily Caller News Foundation that Imran Awan’s father, Haji Ashraf Awan, was giving data to Pakistani official Rehman Malik, and that Imran bragged he had the power to “change the U.S. president.”

Asked for how he knew this, he said that on one occasion in 2008 when a “USB [was] given to Rehman Malik by Imran’s father, my brother Abdul Razzaq was with his father.”

Fresno State: Yes, Professor Who Celebrated Barbara Bush’s Death Can Be Fired

What they could fire her for is conduct unbecoming. She challenged people to call her and posted the schools mental health number, which is now being overloaded and interfering with people in need.

Via Fox News:

California State University’s Fresno campus is investigating after one of their English professors tweeted she was “happy” former first lady Barbara Bush was dead just an hour after her passing was announced.

The author and professor, Randa Jarrar, tweeted a slew of comments about Bush, calling her “a generous and smart and amazing racist who, along with her husband, raised a war criminal.”

Bush, 92, died Tuesday night just days after her family announced her health was failing.

Amid the backlash to her tweets, Jarrar, who also said she “can’t wait for the rest of [the Bush] family to fall to their demise,” said that she couldn’t get fired from her job at Fresno State because of tenure.

Women’s March Leader Proves Once Again That Intersectionality Doesn’t Care About Jews

First, Farrakhan. Then backing sex trafficking. Now this.

Via Daily Wire:

In yet another piece of evidence for the idea that the brand of intersectionality pushed by the Women’s March excludes Jews, co-president Tamika Mallory called for a national boycott against Starbucks thanks to the company’s relationship with . . . the Anti-Defamation League. The ADL is one of the more left-leaning organizations in America, but Mallory hates them because they had the temerity to call out her association with anti-Semite extraordinaire Louis Farrakhan.

On Tuesday, as reported by The Daily Caller, she issued a statement explaining, “So you are aware, Starbucks was on a decent track until they enlisted the Anti-Defamation League to build their anti-bias training. The ADL is CONSTANTLY attacking black and brown people. This is a sign that they are tone deaf and not committed to addressing the concerns of black folks. Be clear what’s happening here!”

Broward Sheriff Ordered By Judge To Release Additional Parkland Response Video

Via Fox News:

A Florida judge on Wednesday reportedly ordered the Broward County Sheriff’s Office to release video clips from a number of security cameras outside the Parkland high school where Nikolas Cruz opened fire on Feb. 14.

The decision comes after the department, as well as the Broward County school district, were sued by a number of news outlets who sought video recordings from five outside cameras, believing they could be used to analyze how well officers responded to the scene, the Miami Herald reported. The Herald said they were among the outlets that sued.

Seventeen people were killed in the Valentine’s Day shooting, during which gunman Cruz opened fire at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

In the wake of the shooting, the sheriff’s office received heavy backlash for the handling of the situation, including the actions of Scot Peterson, the school’s resource officer, who stood outside the building as the attack unfolded.

Lawyers representing the school board and the Broward state attorney’s office argued against the move during an earlier hearing, saying the release of the videos could interfere in the case against Cruz, the Herald said. The district also reportedly feared that school security could become an issue.
