1. Mark Steyn on Brandeis and its politically correct poker rules

Today, Brandeis University announced that it was reversing its decision to award an honorary degree to Ayaan Hirsi Ali, following complaints from faculty, an online petition, and pressure from the Council on American-Islamic Relations, which represents nobody but is flush with Saudi cash. The biases of the academy are well known: Robert Spencer is in no danger of getting an honorary degree any time soon, nor Douglas Murray. Nevertheless, in this instance, Brandeis University is stiffing someone who’s a black feminist atheist from Somalia. Which makes their decision the most explicit recognition yet that, in the hierarchy of identity-group politics, Islam trumps everything, including race, gender and secularism.

  1. Hello there…..its me again……Don Laird…..

    RE: Nevada

    The Nevada Patriots would have used force if one of those Federals had shot a Nevadan, and rightfully so.

    I fully support and encourage the American patriots across the United States to work with their National Guards, their sheriffs associations and the senior echelons of the United States Armed Forces to remove Obama and his administration from the White House and with them, many congressmen and senators, to stand them all on trial to face charges of high treason and sedition.

    Perhaps we could avail ourselves of the services of the eminently wise men in Egypt who sentenced the Muslim Brotherhood traitors and terrorists to death, perhaps these courageous men could find the time to hand down such righteous jurisprudence with respect to the treachery that runs amok in Washington DC. Oh perhaps, just perhaps…..

    Personally, were I to awake to newspaper front pages splashed with photographs of Obama in chains being loaded into a wagon or, in the alternative, the same laying lifeless in a pool of his own gore, well let’s just say my mood would be lighthearted and overjoyed. One can only hope.

  2. NIGERIA – Boko Haram abducts 200 schoolgirls in Borno

    Scores of girls have been abducted in an attack on a school in North-East Nigeria, parents say.

    Gunmen reportedly arrived at the school in Chibok, Borno State, late last night, and ordered the hostel’s teenage residents on to four lorries.

    Parents told the BBC’s Hausa service that at least 200 girls had been abducted. The attackers are thought to be from the Islamist group, Boko Haram.

  3. #3 The Russians can demand all they want, they have no legal right to demand any explanations on what US government officials are doing visiting sovereign nations. They are upset because Obama didn’t ask their permission before he sent the man to Ukraine.

    #4 According to the Founding Fathers the purpose of the Second Amendment is to ensure that the American people will always have the weapons to resist a tyrannical government, whether it is the US or an invading power. The only thing that gives teeth to the leftist slogan of power to the people is the Second Amendment and the left hates it because freedom loving Americans us it to get ready to resist the US government tyranny.

  4. “No Special Agent, I’ve never seen the name “Don Laird” anywhere.
    Sure, my computer shows GoV, but I’ve never posted there.
    Vlad… well, uh, I don’t really pay attention…
    But this “Don Laird” isn’t an American citizen, he can say whatever…”

    Be careful, Son of Dogtown.
