“The Revolution Will Not Uphold the Constitution” – Hard-Left Black Lives Matter Agitators Disrupt ACLU Free Speech Event

A group of hard-left agitators affiliated with the Black Lives Matter movement disrupted a free speech event put on by the American Civil Liberties Union at the College of William & Mary, rushing the stage and preventing the guest from even speaking while chanting Antifa like slogans about how bad the country is and the need to shut down free speech once and for all.

The ACLU’s Claire Gastañaga was at the college to speak on the subject of “Students and the First Amendment” but shortly after taking the stage she was overrun with BLM protesters who made it clear they were there to do one thing – shut down free speech completely.

As Reason Magazine reported, the disruption was livestreamed and documented a variety of different shocking statements made by the group that paint a clear picture of who the people on the hard-left really are as well as what they seem to be willing to do to achieve their goals.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The "Hard Left" reeks with the aura of "entitledment".

And I am very concerned about the coming "Antifa" protests which are supposed to start on 4 November, threatening to "take over" the US government and depose Trump and Pence.

What their actions will most likely achieve, if people are foolish enough to believe that this kind of behavour will bring about the changes they seek, will be a suspension of the Constitution and Bill of Rights, and the imposition of martial law in this country; this is hardly a place any sane Ameericans want to be.

Why Big Oil Conquered The World corbettreport


Published on Oct 6, 2017TRANSCRIPT AND MP3: http://www.corbettreport.com/bigoil

The 20th century was the century of oil. From farm to fork, factory to freeway, there is no aspect of our modern life that has not been shaped by the oil industry. But as the "post-carbon" era of the 21st century comes into view, there are those who see this as the end of the oiligarchy. They couldn't be more wrong. This is the remarkable true story of the world that Big Oil is creating, and how they plan to bring it about.

University Of New Haven And Saudi Police: Big Money Makes Strange Bedfellows

In America, college students are just arriving on their campuses- some for the first time- ready to start the new academic year. They have a wide range of interests and goals, from bringing about the latest medical breakthrough to wanting to change US foreign policy. Some may even want to become President. One thing they all have in common though, is that they have just entered a time in their lives where they will explore, learn, and- most importantly- be able to express themselves.

"F**k Your F**king Freedom Of Speech" - Angry Student Steals MAGA Hat, Demands Victim Be Punished

A video of the incident obtained by Campus Reform shows an enraged female student taking the hat to the school’s Student Life Department as Matthew Vitale fruitlessly attempts to explain to the young woman that the hat is his property.

“So this guy thought it would be a good idea to go into a conference wearing this f***ing hat,” the student who stole the hat states.

“Look at the kind of sh*t he’s wearing, You know what this represents? This represents genocide—genocide of a bunch of people.”
Vitale then tries to explain that “you do not get to take other people’s property that is legally theirs in this country,” to which the unidentified thief replies, “man, f*** your laws.”

“Do you have any f***ing conscience?” she goes on to ask, questioning why Vitale would dare to wear a MAGA hat on campus and telling him that his “f***ing freedom of speech is genocide, homeboy.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Somewhere in this lady's "educational process", she has decided that the unholy trio of rudeness, violence, and victimhood are the essential tools for personal empowerment.

I would suggest that when and if she graduates, and trys to find meaningful employment, that she may well be disabused of these notions very quickly.

Microwave auditory effect

The microwave auditory effect, also known as the microwave hearing effect or the Frey effect, consists of audible clicks (or, with speech modulation, spoken words) induced by pulsed/modulated microwave frequencies. The clicks are generated directly inside the human head without the need of any receiving electronic device. The effect was first reported by persons working in the vicinity of radar transponders during World War II. During the Cold War era, the American neuroscientist Allan H. Frey studied this phenomenon and was the first to publish[1] information on the nature of the microwave auditory effect.

Posted in response to Mike's dismissal of the more 'exotic' technologies that do exist. One can only assume that if articles like this are posted to Wikipedia then there is certainly more where this came from!

Webmaster comment: I do not automatically reject "exotic" technology, only those that do not pass the test of practiucality.

Not a Snowflake Day Care — Walter Williams on American colleges

Many colleges have become hotbeds of what might be labeled as enlightened racism. Students at the University of California, Berkeley created “safe spaces” for people of color. Resident advisers at Scripps College posted two signs to educate students about “emotional labor,” one aimed at white students and one for “people of color and marginalized backgrounds.” University of Michigan students demanded a “designated space on central campus for Black students and students of color to organize and do social justice work.” That was after the university caved to student demands and spent $10 million to build a multicultural center.

In the early 20th century, the world’s dominant superpower looked warily on the rise of a competitor to its supremacy. The machinations of the British to contain the rise of Germany led inexorably to the First World War. Once again in the early 21st century, the world’s dominant superpower is looking warily on the rise of a competitor. Will the American Empire’s machinations to contain the rise of China lead to the Third World War? Or is the American/Chinese conflict another engineered conflict for the benefit of the few at the expense of the many?

HUNDREDS OF UNIVERSITIES HAVE HELPED DHS CREATE A NATION OF FEAR

Ever wonder who's responsible for our daily dosage of fear, terror and crime?

Look no further than our colleges and universities.

According to DHS, 'Homeland Security Centers of Excellence' (COE) are 'led by a college or university'.

COE's are responsible for blacklists, countering violent extremism and DHS propaganda videos and literature.

Colleges and universities have been working with DHS for fifteen years.

Since 2002, when the Homeland Security Act was passed, numerous colleges and universities have been feeding from the DHS money trough. Each year they line up like good little Bundists, promoting DHS's vision of terror.

Think about that, everything you've been told about terrorism and extremism is coming from colleges!

Schools across America will do anything, even if that means working with DHS, so they can get a piece of the annual $35-$40 million pie.

MORE THAN 40 FAMILIES PULL CHILDREN FROM SCHOOL THAT FORCED TRANSGENDER LESSON ON 5-YEAR-OLDS

Forty-one families have pulled 73 children from the elite Sacramento-area Rocklin Academy charter schools as the board continues to defend a kindergarten transgender lesson several parents say traumatized their 5-year-olds and that parents weren’t told about beforehand.

A mother who pulled her son from Grade 6 and daughter from Grade 3 at Rocklin Academy Gateway, where the incident took place, has kept a tally of parents who’ve done likewise.

“It was just the tipping point for most families,” the parent, who asked her name not be published, told LifeSiteNews.

Some parents pulled their kids “solely for this,” while other had “multiple reasons, but yes, this was part of everyone’s reason,” she said.

The controversy erupted after a lesson in which the boy appeared in girl’s clothes and was reintroduced to his kindergarten classmates as a girl.

Teacher Kaelin Swaney also read the pro-transgender “I am Jazz” during the lesson, which took place just before summer vacation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

While the issue of transgender is very real, and all of God's children need to be treated with love, respect and compassion, it is still relatively rare.

People who identify as transgender in this country are +/-
o.6 percent of the population

I can understand that a 5 year old could be very confused, and emotionally traumatized, by such information; and on top of that, parents should have had the right to know that this was going on in advance of any kind of a classroom session on this kind of material, to make the decision as to whether they want their child exposed to this or not, at such a young age.

Swaney and the board massively overstepped here.

Compsci degrees aren't returning on investment for coders – research

University in the UK has never been more expensive. But at least doing a computer science degree guarantees a nice fat, well-paid job at the end, right? Wrong.

Coders with a bachelor's degree only earn £3,000 more a year than those who don't have one, according to a survey of 4,700 developers in the UK by Stack Overflow, a community site frequented by developers for answers to technical questions.

This is despite the average degree now costing £9,000 a year in tuition fees alone. Average student debt is now more than £50,000, according the Institute of Fiscal Studies.

The research found that the median salary of those who did not have higher education was £35,000 per year, while those who gained a bachelor's degree earned £38,000 and postgraduates took home £42,000.

Professors told to report students who make campus ‘less inclusive’ to Behavior Assessment Team

As colleges across the country struggle with questions related to free speech on campuses, some schools have implemented policies that appear to give administrators significant latitude to discipline students for speaking in unpopular ways.

Most recently, the dean’s office of Utah Valley University, a public institution located in the north-central part of Utah, distributed a guidance letter to all faculty encouraging them to report to the school’s Behavior Assessment Team any students who use “inappropriate language,” are “argumentative,” or who speak “loudly.”

America's dirtiest, biggest student lender neutralized by federal watchdog

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, founded by Elizabeth Warren prior to her career as a senator, has entered into an unprecedented settlement with National Collegiate Student Loan Trusts, the largest holder of student debt in the country.
***
The Trusts are accused of widescale financial fraud, collecting on debts that they didn't own, or that had expired, using "deceptive or unfair means" and flooding the country's courts with bogus lawsuits.

The Trusts originally held more than $12B in debt, but $5B has already been lost to default. Trust bondholders will not receive any payments while the audit is underway. People whose debts are found to be invalid will not owe anything, and will not face tax penalties for "debt forgiveness." All wage garnishment and bank balance seizures will be suspended during the audit as well.

The settlement still awaits judicial approval.>>>

STILL ROTTEN TO THE (COMMON) CORE: “INSPIRATIONAL ROBOTS”

A few years ago, when Gary Lawrence and I wrote Rotten to the (Common) Core, two of our chief concerns about the whole program were (1) the possibility that the ultimate goal was to replace human teachers in the classroom with robots (a goal not, of course, ever stated explicitly), and (2) that the "individually-adapted computerized standardized tests" being touted for the program were not only building on the faulty foundations of the standardized test to begin with, but that the ultimate goal was to expand the surveillance state thereby, and possibly, to use technology for further mind manipulation and social engineering. To this we added a third concern, namely, that teachers would end up being nothing but classroom "proctors" and "robot maintenance" technicians.

Well, this article shared by Ms. M.W. seems to indicate that these fears might have been justified:

Enrollment drops at schools known for ‘social justice warfare’

Universities known for being hotbeds of campus protest and liberal activism are struggling with declining enrollments and budget shortfalls, and higher education analysts say that’s no coincidence.

Take Oberlin College. According to a document leaked to The Oberlin Review, the school’s student newspaper, the small liberal arts college famous for social justice hoaxes has had trouble attracting and retaining students, missing this year’s enrollment mark by 80 and racking up a $5 million budget deficit in the process.

William A. Jacobson, a professor at Cornell Law School who runs the Legal Insurrection blog, said the “most obvious culprit” in Oberlin’s dwindling admissions is “relentless social justice warfare.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why in the name of sam hill did social justice get conflated with "social warfare"?!?

WHY ARE US UNIVERSITIES ARMING THEMSELVES WITH GRENADE LAUNCHERS?

A program that supplies university police with surplus military equipment is enjoying a renaissance under Trump and Sessions. Most of the military gear is going to campuses in states with the highest poverty rates, where the weapons will be used not only to repress student protests but also to perpetuate racial and class divides between campuses and their surrounding communities.

Sending an ominous signal to student protest movements nationwide, universities across the US are once again able to equip their police forces with castoff military gear, tying them ever more intimately into the military-industrial complex.

In August, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced at a Fraternal Order of Police convention that Program 1033 would resume providing ex-military equipment to police organizations, including university police departments.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

ARE YOU FLIPPING KIDDING ME?!?

It appears to me that this militarisation of college and university policing is to "boil the frog slowly", in terms of getting students to accept that this is precisely what policing on campus - and in the rest of their lives - should be; that even the smallest of incidents needs to be met with brutal, overwhelming force.

And to all students and the parents and friends who love them, and happen to read this blog, "1984" was not an instruction manual!!</em>

CHILDREN HELD HOSTAGE DURING DISTURBING 9/11 DRILL BY SCHOOL OFFICIAL THREATENING TO KILL THEM

Honolulu, HI — In America’s modern-day police state, it seems the state knows no bounds as to how far it will go to keep children and adults in a perpetual state of fear. A recent lawsuit out of Hawaii illustrates the extent of the American fear culture and how its insanity is tormenting and traumatizing America’s youth.

For more than 10 minutes, middle school children were held hostage by a raging lunatic in a mask, swinging a hammer while threatening to kill them all. Naturally, officials claim this drill, involving a school official wearing a mask and holding a hammer while threatening to kill children, was done for the “safety of those children.” Well, Michelle and Eddie Chavez aren’t buying that excuse.

According to a report from Courthouse News, the couple has since filed a federal lawsuit over this incident.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Whoever engineered this lockdown drill should be sacked; unfortunately, because of a hyper-robust union culture here on Oahu, that probably won't happen until pigs fly.

But think about it; what these drills do is inculcate is a culture of fear and helplessness into children.

This is precisely the kind of dumbed-down, fearful, follow-orders, no thinking for yourself, mentality that those in the Bowels of Power in the Unhinged, Surveilled, States of Amerika wish to "educate" our children to become; as adults, it makes them more easily controlled by sophisticated propaganda, and more easily "sold" on things like wars, and austerity, so that those in the Bowels of Power can pursue their agenda with impunity.

FORMER CITI CEO PANDIT SAYS AI WILL REPLACE 30 PERCENT OF BANKING JOBS WITHIN 5 YEARS

Banks have already started to roll out automated systems.

While Vikram Pandit’s prediction is bad news for back-office employees, banks have already begun to use AI and machine learning in a big way.

From stock picking quants such as those currently under development by iBankCoin (to be rolled out in Exodus), to “robo-advisors” which handle client portfolios deemed too small to justify a costly human broker, to high frequency trading (HFT) algos, to intelligent fraud detection systems which detect and adapt to fraudulent behavior – banks are becoming increasingly reliant on automated systems.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The short answer is, the recent law school grad with $150,000 in debt cannot compete.

College counselors need to be looking at future job trends for at least 20 years into the future, in terms of guiding students toward careers that will actually exist when they graduate, and that is just the hard truth.

British Teachers Too Scared To Teach About 9/11 Attacks

We all know the official story of September 11th: four jetliners were hijacked by groups of four and five Arabic men armed with box cutters, who proceeded to fly three of the four jets into the Twin Towers and the Pentagon. Subsequently the World Trade Center Towers, weakened by the impacts and fires, collapsed into piles of rubble. The FBI had compiled a list of hijackers within three days, and it was so obvious that Osama bin Laden had masterminded the operation from caves in Afghanistan, that there was no need to seriously investigate the crime or produce evidence. The "retaliatory" attack on the Taliban would soon commence.

Democratic Rep. to introduce bill limiting free speech at universities

U.S. Rep. Anthony Brown (D-Md.) announced he will introduce a bill to limit free speech or “hate speech” at universities and colleges and force the schools to report hate crimes to local law enforcement.

His logic behind the bill is to require universities to demonstrate they have programs in place that will define for students “what is acceptable speech and what is not acceptable speech.” Brown said funding will be set aside in a grant for institutions unable to secure the resources to create the programs.
