University Withdraws Program that Queries Sexual History of Students, Faculty

Clemson University

 

Clemson University has suspended demands made in an email earlier this week to students and faculty that they complete an online Title IX training program that asks invasive questions about drinking and sexual habits.

Also stated in the email is that failure to complete the course would be in violation of the “Student Code of Conduct, General Student Regulation 8: Failure to Comply with Official Request.”

Translation: Complete the questionnaire or face disciplinary action.

Campus Reform

In a campus-wide email, the South Carolina university announced that all students, faculty, and staff would be required to complete a mandatory, one-hour long Title IX training course by November 1.

‘We believe you’ll enjoy the assignment,’ the email, provided to Campus Reform, reads. ‘It is an engaging and informative online course, created with students for students….

Some of the questions asked had to do with how many times a student engaged in sexual intercourse during a specific time period and with how many partners. Invasive to say the least.

As one might guess, it did not go over well with the faculty, students or their parents who made their voices heard on the subject. Therefore, “Clemson University has suspended the mandatory training until further notice due to the content of certain questions…”

$700,000 Taxpayer Funded Climate Change Musical Closes

The Great Immensity Climate Change BeFunky_Tilt-Shift_2 show closed

 

Earlier this year I wrote a post about the federal government spending $700,000 of taxpayer money on a musical about climate change entitled “The Great Immensity.”

Well the show went on and as expected, it was a dismal failure so much so that the curtain on the disaster is being pulled ahead of time.

Washington Free Beacon

The Great Immensity, a musical described as ‘painfully long‘ and ‘awkward,’ was made possible by a $697,177 grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF).

‘The play, which featured songs and video exploring Americans’ relationships to the environment, opened in New York in April with a three-week run before going on a national tour that was supposed to attract 75,000 patrons,’ FoxNews.com reported. ‘But it stalled after a single production in Kansas City, falling short of the lofty goals outlined in a grant proposal….’

For starters, what were they thinking to use taxpayer dollars on such a failure? Oh, my bad, throwing taxpayer money at promised failures is business as usual for the Obama administration.

Obama’s Conspicuously Avoided Little Syrian Problem… That No-One Seems To Pay Attention To…..


Originally posted on The Last Refuge:

Surprisingly, or perhaps not, the media seem to be avoiding a rather obvious question:

Under what authority is President Obama claiming to be able to fly into Syria to attack NI-ISIS?

Obama syria

You might have noted a few, well, probing flights recently outlined by media of Russian incursions into U.S. and NATO qualified defense zone airspace. Yet interestingly no-one seems to be connecting the dots between the Russian pokes, and Obama’s proclaimed Syrian strategy. Remember, Russia is an ally the “state of” Syria, and Bashir Assad.

The U.S. State Department, and the U.S. White House team, have been very careful to note they will not be coordinating any offensive NI-ISIS engagements with Iran or Syria.

For all current intents and purposes the matter with Iran is a non-issue, however the matter with Syria is an entirely divergent situation altogether.

As far as we can tell there is no precedent…

The Man Who Built Obamacare Prefers No Life Beyond 75 Years Old…

That’s how long I want to live: 75 years.

This preference drives my daughters crazy. It drives my brothers crazy. My loving friends think I am crazy. They think that I can’t mean what I say; that I haven’t thought clearly about this, because there is so much in the world to see and do. To convince me of my errors, they enumerate the myriad people I know who are over 75 and doing quite well. They are certain that as I get closer to 75, I will push the desired age back to 80, then 85, maybe even 90.

I am sure of my position. Doubtless, death is a loss. It deprives us of experiences…

Australia’s Muslim Community Protests Anti-Terror Raids, Arrests of Jihadists

Tags

, , ,


Hubris! Australia’s Muslim community is furious over yesterday’s anti-terror raids, which netted the arrests of 15 jihadists plotting a huge beheading campaign as ordered by a senior member of the Islamic State.

Muslim leaders claim that they get the reason for the raids and arrests and have no problem with it, however, “women and children” terrorized during the raids and homes smashed.

Well since the Muslim community gets it, that would explain why they are accusing the Australian police of terrorizing the community. Yeah, right.

 

Australia Muslims protest anti-terror raids and arrest of 15 jihadists 06192014

 

During the protest which took place at the Lakemba station, Muslims chanted, “we reject the terror laws, they only serve American wars” while holding up signs that read, “Stop Terrorizing Muslims” and “Terror raids can’t break the spirit of Muslims.”

So then, they are enraged over the arrests of 15 jihadists. At the same time, it is ironic that those who beat and abuse women and children are now using them as props to run a guilt trip on Australian police who were doing their jobs.

News.com.au

‘My house was raided by these police pigs,’ a teen from within the crowd screamed….

‘They tried to take the blanket off my mother…Pigs came and tried to take it off my mother as she was dressed like any woman would dress for her husband….’

‘“The dog punched my Muslim mother on the ear …’ The boy screamed, growing increasingly agitated as he asked his ‘brothers and sisters’ what they would have done’.

The officers were covered by helmets and balaclavas and broke doors to gain entry to their home.

‘They didn’t knock — At least have some respect … they came in breaking the door and wanted to see (my mother) half naked…..’

Terror raids: Muslim radical Uthman Badar warns of backlash against ‘terrorism’ of government, ASIO and police

… In front of 300 angry protesters, controversial Hizt ut-Tahrir spokesman Uthman Badar warned of a growing anger within the Islamic ­community and said it was time to stop the victimisation. “We are tired of being made scapegoats. The government is the terrorist,” he declared to the gathering, many waving anti-government placards….

Hizt ut-Tahrir? No matter how one spins it, Uthman Badar is a terrorist.

As far as who is to blame, it is the fault of the police and the United States not a bunch of jihadists out to slaughter innocents.

ISIS Releases Another Propaganda Video – Message from British Detainee

screenshot ISIS propaganda video message from British Detainee 09182014

 

While looking for videos of twitter of the Muslim protests in Australia under hash tag #Lakemba, I ran across the following video.

The video, which has nothing to do with the events that have unfolded during the past twenty-four hours in Australia, was released by the Islamic State. Its title: “Lend Me Your Ears, Messages from the British Detainee John Cantlie, Part 1.” [Notice the hash tags]

In the event, the video has been removed from twitter, it can be viewed at the link below (no beheadings).

Why captured British journalist delivers ISIS message in latest video or at YouTube, here.

In the meantime, let us pray for the safe return of Mr. Cantlie, the other hostage and their families.

Finally, while twitter has banned ISIS, they managed to slip the videos in under trending hashtags in order to spread their message.

The sons of pigs are capable of anything.

The Feds Bypass the State and Come Directly to Districts Asking Them To Commit To Federal Goals

Missouri Education Watchdog, Anne Gassel

Someone please sign everyone at the USDoEd up for a refresher course on the constitution. They are really struggling with the concept of the 10th amendment.

The latest from Arne Duncan et al continues the tradition of the federal government inserting its nose into local school district decisions which the constitution does not allow for and ESEA expressly forbids. They are now going directly to local school districts and asking 16,000 Superintendent across the country to sign THEIR Future Ready technology pledge.

From the letter sent to Superintendents,

The U.S. Department of Education seeks to encourage and support superintendents who commit to taking a leadership role in this transition with recognition and resources to help facilitate this transition to digital learning.

The main goal of this initiative is to get districts, charters and private schools to commit to maximizing their use of digital learning and broadband access to the internet. They want schools to fund the resources necessary to “leverage their maximum impact on student learning…

Al Qaeda, Islamic State in Competition to Attack US Homeland First

BeFunky_OrtonStyle_1 Barack Obama Al Qaeda ISIS Not an Issue

Barack Obama, one year ago, two years ago have said repeatedly that “Al Qaeda is on the path to defeat” and the “Al Qaeda has been decimated.”

Enter 2014; Islamic terrorists are falling over themselves showing no signs of weakness trying to attack Americans on U. S. soil first.

Apparently, whoever nails us first will be ordained king of the caliphate. No doubt a gift from the Muslims in the East Wing.

DailyMail.co.uk

A trio of advisers to the president warned a congressional committee on Wednesday that Al Qaeda and the Islamic State are competing against each other to be the dominant terrorist group and that rivalry could lead to an attack on the U.S.

Responding to a question from GOP Rep. Peter King, Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson, Federal Bureau of Investigation Director James Comey, and National Counterterrorism Center Director Matthew Olsen expressed concern over the tug-of-war and acceded that Al Qaeda may be trying to reassert itself as the leading global terrorist network…

Parental Alert – Marxists Pushing for Student Attendance at People’s Climate March Sunday

Peoples-Climate-MarchWe have seen repeatedly how Progressives scream when children are involved in projects that don’t fit the Communist agenda while never hesitating to use them as props in pursuit of their far-left agendas that has nothing to do with children.

Communism at its ugliest, thousands of children from 300 plus school campuses across New York City are expected to join the People’s Climate March this Sunday, September 21st in New York City.

EAG News, Danette Clark

The Green Schools Alliance, a coalition of hundreds of schools throughout the U.S. and more than 4,000 schools nationwide, is a coordinating partner for the event.

According to the global climate change organization, 305.org:

In response to the United Nations’ Emergency Climate Summit, an unprecedented surge of tens of thousands of students from more than 300 campuses will join the People’s Climate March, which is anticipated to be the largest demonstration on climate change in history. Students have built a movement on hundreds of campuses to demand fossil fuel divestment and local solutions, and they’re joining the movement to demand bold climate action and an end to extractive industries as President Obama and world leaders meet at the United Nations….

Continue Reading

The usual suspects organizations are participating in the march, i.e., AFL-CIO, UFT, SEIU, Code Pink, Communist Party USA, New York Communities for Change (formerly ACORN) and the International Socialist Organization in addition to every other Communist group in the nation.

Oh yes, the anti-Semites and friends of jihad are participating as well. After all, that is how Progressives roll.

As also noted on 305.org:

The People’s Climate March will bring together a broad coalition of students, union workers, environmental justice organizations, survivors of Hurricane Sandy, and more. More than 1000 organizations have endorsed the march, and students from more than 300 colleges and universities will be attending and will march together to demonstrate the power and the demands of the millennial generation.

Student groups are joining the People’s Climate March from campuses across the country — over 45 campuses in New York alone are organizing students to attend, and students are organizing buses, trains and car pools from the West Coast, Historically Black Colleges & Universities and youth community organizations….

This is b.s. My grandchildren will not be there. Parading with those who cavort with terrorists, anti-Semites, Communists is not good company on any given day or for any cause.

Finally, our children should not be used as props.

Team of Ebola education workers murdered in Guinea; eight dead

Taking into account that these people despise us, our government should reconsider sending our troops into this cesspool. Our men and women who serve don’t need this insanity.

Maybe this sort of possibility is why we’re sending military to help with this crisis.

NBC News reports:

The killings are an example of what aid officials have been saying: the Ebola epidemic, in which more than 2,600 people have died, is disrupting not only public health but society in general.

The Washington Post reports that three of the victims had their throats cut and that the bodies were found in a village latrine.
