University of CA Caves to Demands After ‘Black Student Alliance’ Sit-In

University of CA Caves to Demands After ‘Black Student Alliance’ Sit-In

The University of California-Santa Cruz caved to the demands of liberal student protesters who staged a sit-in at the administration building, Abby Huntsman reported. Huntsman called it another example of educators accommodating “snowflakes on campus.” The school’s African-Black Student Alliance occupied the building for three days, demanding four specific concessions from the administration. WATCH: ‘I Have A Message For You’ – PA Gov Candidate Slams George Soros AZ Sheriff Opposes Border Wall: ‘Medieval Solution to a Modern Problem’ Tucker Takes on Former Clinton Adviser Who Said Media Should ‘Apologize to Hillary’ According to the Santa Cruz Sentinel, the four demands were four years of student housing for “all students from underrepresented communities” who applied to live in the Rosa Parks House, creating a lounge space in the Parks House, painting the Parks House the colors of Pan-African liberation and teaching a “mandatory educational diversity orientation” to freshmen students. WATCH: One of the sit-in demonstrators appeared on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” earlier this week: The university’s media relations director, Scot Hernandez-Jason, later announced they would meet the students’ demands. Though the protesters spoke with Tucker Carlson last week, the paper reported they were not as receptive to local media outlets. Those involved in the sit-in said it should be classified as a “reclamation” and not an “occupation,” KSBW...
Trump mulls additional troops as stalemate in Afghan grinds on

Trump mulls additional troops as stalemate in Afghan grinds on

Afghan commandos arrived last month at Pandola village near the site of a U.S. bombing east of Kabul, Afghanistan.  (AP Photo/Rahmat Gul) President Trump could be asked next week to send more troops to Afghanistan as the 16-year war grinds on in a bloody stalemate. The U.S. commander in Afghanistan wants 3,000 more troops and Pentagon officials told Congress this week that the war plan recommendations being sent to Trump are aimed at moving “beyond the stalemate” with the ISIS-affiliated Taliban insurgency. Afghan soldiers are suffering what Pentagon auditors call “shockingly high” battlefield casualties, and prospects are narrowing for a negotiated peace settlement with the Taliban. The insurgents may have failed to capture and hold a major city, but they are controlling or influencing ever more territory. “The situation is deteriorating,” said Stephen Biddle, a George Washington University professor and close Afghan war observer. HOW TERRORISTS FREELY ENTER AFGHANISTAN AND MOVE AROUND UNHINDERED This grim picture forms the backdrop for administration deliberations on a way ahead in Afghanistan, where U.S. troops are supporting beleaguered Afghans against the Taliban insurgency and stepping up attacks on an extremist group considered an Islamic State affiliate. The three most recent U.S. deaths in Afghanistan were in combat last month against the IS affiliate, which also was the target of a much-publicized U.S. airstrike April 13 using the “mother of all bombs.” Army Gen. John Nicholson, the top U.S. commander in Afghanistan, has asked the Pentagon for 3,000 more U.S. and allied troops to bolster support for the Afghan army. But his request took a back seat to a broader administration review of Afghan...

What can the FCC do to Stephen Colbert over Trump joke?

Jayme Deerwester  Talk show host Stephen Colbert isn’t backing down from all of the criticism regarding his rant on President Donald Trump the other night saying he “would do it again.” USA TODAY (Photo: Gail Schulman, AP) 21443CONNECTTWEET 2LINKEDIN 240COMMENTEMAILMORE What does Stephen Colbert have in common with Bono and Nicole Richie? He could be the latest celebrity to be investigated by the Federal Communications Commission for using crude language on broadcast TV. During a radio show interview with Philadelphia’s WPHT on Thursday, FCC Chairman Ajit Pai acknowledged that his agency has gotten a “number of complaints” about an oral sex joke involving Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin the comedian made during Monday night’s Late Show monologue. Colbert fired back at Trump after he dismissed CBS’ Sunday morning politics show Face the Nation as “fake news” and “Deface the Nation” in an interview with CBS journalist John Dickerson last week. After a fiery takedown of the president, who has been nothing but good for his ratings, Colbert said, “The only thing your mouth is good for is being Vladimir Putin’s (expletive) holster.” “I have had a chance to see the clip now,” Pai told WPHT’s Rich Zeoli, “and so, as we get complaints – and we’ve gotten a number of them – we’re going to take the facts that we find and we are going to apply the law as it’s been set out by the Supreme Court and other courts and we’ll take the appropriate action.” However, the law — at least as it is currently written — would appear to be Colbert’s side. The Late Show, which comes on at...
Utah Sen. Mike Lee advocates for ‘smart on crime’ policies

Utah Sen. Mike Lee advocates for ‘smart on crime’ policies

By – Associated Press – Saturday, May 6, 2017 SALT LAKE CITY (AP) – Utah Sen. Mike Lee belongs to a new breed of Republican leaders who are falling into a trend. The Deseret News reported (http://bit.ly/2q9oPPt ) Wednesday that Republicans at the state and federal levels like Lee are replacing decades of “tough on crime” policies with “smart on crime” alternatives that are showing results in the states and gaining traction in Washington. Since his 2010 election, Lee promoted the story of a Salt Lake City man who was sentenced to 55 years in prison without parole for his first marijuana-dealing arrest. Reports say Lee was instrumental in Weldon Angelos’ early release from federal prison. Lee has continued to address over-criminalization and excessive sentence issues. In March, Lee and other senators discussed a reform with President Donald Trump’s son in law Jared Kushner. ___ Information from: Deseret News,...
