The Left Warms Up To 
North Korean Dictator Kim Jong Un
by PETER HASSON
{dailycaller.com} ~ North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un is growing in popularity on America’s political left-wing as the despot engages in a war of words with President Trump... Progressives have shown an increasing willingness to embrace the brutal dictator as a means of attacking Trump, and some in the media have given the brutal dictator friendly, celebrity-like coverage. Left-wing activists, meanwhile, are eagerly spreading pro-North Korea propaganda and making excuses for the dictator’s murderous activities...  http://dailycaller.com/2017/09/22/the-left-warms-up-to-north-korean...

The liar-Clinton Email Investigation Isn’t Over —
But You’d Never Know Based 
on Mainstream Media
by Jon Street
{aim.org} ~ There have been several bombshell revelations in the liar-Hillary Clinton email investigation in the last week, but you wouldn’t know it if you only paid attention to the mainstream media... The FBI reversed course in saying the previously unreleased liar-Clinton emails were not of “public interest.” The bureau previously said the public’s interest did not trump liar-Clinton’s privacy concerns. But on Thursday, attorney Ty Clevenger convinced Department of Justice official Sean R. O’Neill to reverse the decision, the Washington Times reported. “Any records concerning the FBI’s investigation of obstruction of justice are currently being processed by the FBI along with the remainder of the liar-Clinton email investigation file. The FBI is publicly posting all releasable records on a rolling basis,” O’Neill said...  http://www.aim.org/aim-column/the-clinton-email-investigation-isnt-...

Showdown looms over Trump dossier; 
FBI misses third deadline to turn 
over subpoenaed documents
by Byron York
{washingtonexaminer.com} ~ A third deadline has now passed for the FBI and Justice Department to give the House Intelligence Committee subpoenaed documents related to the Trump dossier... And for a third time, the bureau has not produced the material. The dossier is a collection of what former FBI Director James Comey called "salacious and unverified" allegations of collusion between Russia and Trump campaign figures in the 2016 campaign. The Russia allegations were compiled by a former British spy, Christopher Steele, who was commissioned by the opposition research firm Fusion GPS, which is thought to have been paid for the work by wealthy supporters of liar-Hillary Clinton. The FBI reportedly considered taking over the dossier project in the fall of 2016, when the campaign was at its height, leading Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley to say the dossier matter raised "questions about the FBI's independence from politics."... http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/byron-york-showdown-looms-over-tr...

Violence Is Becoming More Acceptable
by Brian Mark Weber:  As summer turns to autumn, the hallowed halls of academia fill with eager, young minds thirsting for an opportunity to study with thoughtful professors, engage in vigorous and civil debates about the Great Books or the Founding Fathers, and immerse themselves in these venerable laboratories of learning where future citizens are groomed.

          Back in our new, warped reality, any parents who think their children are experiencing this once-common campus environment today might want to ask for a refund. Speech is no longer free, and in some cases it’s downright dangerous.
          Today’s campus protesters make the college radicals of the 1960s look like boring conformists. Henry David Thoreau’s concept of civil disobedience is out the window. There’s nothing civil about the aggressive and violent nature in which today’s students are shutting down free speech at America’s colleges and universities. And their professors? One was recently charged with four counts of felony assault for donning a black mask and clocking Trump supporters with a bike lock.
          A Brookings Institution study revealed ominous signs about the threats to free speech in this country. Some 1,500 students at colleges and universities were surveyed about various ways that a speaker on campus might be stopped. Shockingly, 19% of them responded that violence is an acceptable method of shutting down a speaker.
          Lest readers assume this is a partisan problem, the survey shows that among undergraduates, 20% of Democrats, 22% of Republicans and 16% of Independents believe that violence is an acceptable way to silence opponents.
          So far, however, it is leftists who are turning this violent mindset into action against disfavored speakers. Sadly, this violence is becoming commonplace as a way to stifle free speech and the expression of uncomfortable ideas.
          Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) wrote in The Daily Signal about Middlebury College in Vermont, where “the eminent scholar Charles Murray was at first shouted down from speaking, then when the event was moved, students pulled the fire alarm to prevent him from speaking.” Grassley notes, “It was not Murray but the students who essentially falsely yelled ‘fire’ in a crowded theater. The Middlebury professor who moderated the debate was physically assaulted, and has yet to fully recover from her serious injuries.”
          Grassley added, “It was not a mere handful of students but a mob who engaged in such appalling conduct at an institution theoretically devoted to rationality and intellectualism. Not including those who were not captured on video, the college disciplined more than 70 students. But none were expelled or even suspended.”
          The response from authorities at colleges and universities has been disgraceful, which only invites future acts of violence. And while many professors are turning a blind eye, others are actually encouraging students to resort to extreme measures in order to shut down free speech.
          While these purveyors of violence want us to believe that they’re somehow protecting the community from vile ideas, the average American would be surprised by what they consider hateful and offensive. Joshua Fatzick writes at Voice of America that “students at Claremont McKenna College in California targeted Heather Mac Donald,” author of The War on Cops. Why? Because her book “puts forth the idea that police officers are afraid to perform their jobs because of increased media scrutiny following the 2014 police shooting death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri.” So how did we get here? This is a complex question.
          Part of the problem is that many students simply don’t know what’s in our Constitution and are unable to identify even one of the freedoms in our Bill of Rights. Without the knowledge that our Constitution protects all speech, even that which expresses ideas contrary to our own beliefs, students are engaging in tactics that not only threaten civil discourse in academia but also threaten our very constitutional system.
          The Brookings survey also showed that 44% of college students believe that the Constitution does not protect what is considered hate speech (only 39% believe it does). Robby Soave at Reason writes, “Teenagers are somehow making it through 12 years of primary education without absorbing the most basic civics lesson: The founding documents of the United States of America zealously protect people who make offensive statements from censorship at the hands of government officials or violent mobs.”
          One might argue that the Brookings report and other similar surveys distort or exaggerate the degree to which college students are opposed to free speech. The only problem is that professors, students and campus organizations no longer speak in subtle terms about their objectives, but directly challenge our founding documents and values. For years, these views were expressed as a manifestation of our constitutional rights. Now they’re being violently defended in order to oppose our constitutional rights.
          Take, for instance, this year’s Constitution Day lecture at Princeton University, in which anthropology Professor Carolyn Rouse argued that “the academy has never promoted free speech as its central value.” Rouse went on to state that it’s up to institutions to determine what they believe to be free speech, “and therefore have their own internal rule making capacity, with needs to induce or coerce compliance.” Think about it: We’re paying huge sums of money to have people like this teach our children.
          One of the primary obstacles conservatives must overcome in restoring a broad understanding of our country’s principles and values is that our education system continues to politicize the teaching of history or simply ignores it completely.
          Making matters worse is that far too many college students are not even aware of the purpose of a university education. Gone are the days when institutions of higher learning boasted of their role in creating free thinkers and future citizens primed to enter the real world as contributing members of a free society.
          Peter Berkowitz in The Wall Street Journal asserts, “American colleges and universities should be bastions of self-knowledge and self-criticism, simply because they exist to teach people how to think. But in recent years America’s campuses seem to have abandoned this tradition. Worse, the meager course offerings on the topic of liberal education tend to reinforce misunderstandings about its character and content.”
          Where we go from here is critical to the very survival of our basic rights and our Constitution. We can’t merely dismiss anti-constitutional rhetoric as an anomaly on the college campus or a product of aging left-wing professors clinging on to the radicalism of the 1960s. When college students will stop at nothing to silence opposing views, the academy is ill. It is diseased. No longer an issue of liberal or conservative, tomorrow’s leaders will exercise power with a far different notion of Liberty. Our Constitution, and the idea of free speech itself, is hanging in the balance.  ~The Patriot Post

TRADITIONAL VALUES 
ARE WHITE SUPREMACY?
by DAVID LIMBAUGH
{wnd.com} ~ Does the political left – which dominates the mainstream media, Hollywood, academia and the Democratic Party – really believe its ubiquitous charges of racism against conservatives, or are they a sick ploy to discredit, ruin and defeat its political opponents?

During President liar-nObama’s tenure, a conservative could hardly oppose liar-nObama on policy grounds without being accused of racism. It didn’t matter that conservatives had fought liar-Hillary Clinton’s health-care plan in the ’90s because they opposed socialized medicine. It didn’t matter that they had opposed liar-Bill Clinton’s tax hikes. Their opposition to liar-nObamacare and liar-nObama’s proposed tax increases had to be motivated by race.

If you repeat an absurd claim often enough, it becomes believable to some people. And the left has been hammering away so long against the supposed racism of political conservatives that many people, hordes of whom know better and multitudes of millennial political neophytes who apparently don’t, have bought into this toxicity.

I have always assumed that one of the main reasons racism is sinful is that it involves judging people and discriminating against them not on the basis of their individual character or behavior but on their group identity. Among other things, this robs people of their human dignity and equal worth as being created in God’s image.

It is noteworthy that the left – in its categorical condemnation of conservatives as racists – engages in the very type of discriminatory judgment it decries, i.e., says conservatives are racist because the policies they support allegedly hurt minorities.

But conservatives reject that their policies hurt minorities. We think history has shown that they help all people and that liberal policies are consistently destructive. Moreover, our policies, by definition, aspire to colorblindness. We believe in equality of opportunity for all and oppose policies tailored to race in application or result.

Conversely, policies driven by identity politics perpetuate tensions among different races. The damage done to race relations by an entire political wing bearing false witness against the other on race is incalculable. Can you imagine, for example, the harm that would befall my children and others if I poisoned them daily with the lie that certain people hate them?

It would be easier to understand this insanity if it could be explained simply by the left’s cynical desire to exploit race for political gain. After all, liberals’ constant agitation of minorities, with their 24/7 crusade against conservatives as racist, has to be primarily responsible for blacks’ disproportionate support for the Democratic Party when the latter’s policies have demonstrably harmed the plight of blacks.

But there seems to be something even more disturbing at play in this nonstop leftist slander. Look at the kind of poison emanating from universities throughout the United States.

Witness the recent brouhaha over a jointly penned op-ed by two law professors Amy Wax of the University of Pennsylvania and Larry Alexander of the University of San Diego who suggested, essentially, that America’s decline can be traced to a rejection of traditional values or, in the authors’ words, “the breakdown of the country’s bourgeois culture” and advocated a return to those values.

The professors argued that America did better when we had traditional values and therefore should return to this “cultural script”: “Get married before you have children, and strive to stay married for their sake. Get the education you need for gainful employment, work hard, and avoid idleness. Go the extra mile for your employer or client. Be a patriot, ready to serve the country. Be neighborly, civic-minded, and charitable. Avoid coarse language in public. Be respectful of authority. Eschew substance abuse and crime.”

Significantly, the authors were careful to note that these “basic cultural precepts … could be followed by people of all backgrounds and abilities.” That is, the benefits of these values and practices transcend race.

Precisely on cue, however, leftist robot – aka University of Pennsylvania Law School dean – Ted Ruger charged to the student newspaper with an op-ed denouncing Wax’s piece as divisive and noxious and rejecting “emphatically … that a single cultural tradition is better than all others.” Charges subsequently poured in from faculty members, students and alumni accusing Wax of white supremacy, misogyny and homophobia. Some demanded that she be barred from teaching first-year law courses.

Alexander experienced a similar backlash when University of San Diego School of Law Dean Stephen Ferruolo disseminated a school-wide memo denouncing the piece, as well.

Regrettably, the left, in academia and elsewhere, increasingly equates traditional values and political conservatism with white supremacy. The norms that were formerly accepted almost universally are not just under systematic assault but also being indicted as racist.

Let me ask you sincerely: Do people really believe that these innocuous notions of hard work, virtue, marriage, respect, friendship, civic-mindedness, charity and patriotism are unique to certain races or groups of people? That they are not constructive goals for individuals, groups and the nation? That they are somehow rooted in bigotry of any kind?

The answer has to be “yes.” Some really believe this nonsense, which means the left’s propagation of these ideas is more than just a calculated ploy for power. And that’s probably more alarming, because it means it is more deep-seated.

These corrosive ideas must be fought in the most aggressive terms. We simply won’t be able to return this nation and its people to greatness, much less make strides in racial harmony, if we can’t even try to improve ourselves without being accused of racism.

If we think we can ignore these cockeyed ideas as fringe and insignificant, then we are in denial. They are everywhere; they’re no longer the stuff of radical anecdotes.

We’d better wake up – and stand up for the things we believe in, lest their very advocacy convict us soon of hate crimes warranting societal censure. At the risk of being falsely accused of white supremacy, may I suggest that we all become more civic-minded and charitable and promote the time-tested traditions that have made this nation great and that are designed to improve the lot of all people, irrespective of race, creed, ethnicity or gender?
