Trey Gowdy Blindsided By Federal Ethics Complaint; Widespread Misconduct Discovered: report
Carissa House-Dunphy - June 24, 2017
One by one, the GOP is falling fast. First, the Trump team was revealed to have allegedly colluded with the Russian government to win the 2016 presidential election. GOP Representative and chair of the House Oversight Committee, Jason Chaffetz, resigned his term early in the middle of that investigation. The Right is racking up more losses than wins since taking control of the White House, Senate, and the House of Representatives.

Now, a new bombshell has emerged. GOP Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) now faces an ethics complaint for taking bribes from an anti-Hillary Clinton group during his investigation of the debunked Benghazi scandal.

Scott Dworkin, former adviser on both Vice President Joe Biden’s and Senator Elizabeth Warren’s (D-MA) campaigns, revealed on Twitter that the ethics complaint was filed by the Democratic Coalition, which Dworkin founded and heads, along with copies of the complaint.

It's official.
By Jack Davis

The U.S. Supreme Court said Monday that key parts of President Donald Trump’s executive order banning travel and immigration from several countries with high frequencies of terrorism can take effect while the Court considers the case.

The Supreme Court lifted most of the injunction blocking the president’s travel ban, allowing it to be implemented in most instances. Exceptions to the ban would cover individuals with a “bona fide relationship” with an American citizen

CPUSA Ran No Candidates for President in 2008, 2012 & 2016.
The Communist Party of The United States of America ran no candidates for President in 2008, 2012 & 2016. In 2008, it instead endorsed Barack H. Obama for president. It 2012, it also ran no candidate, instead unqualifiedly endorsing Barack H. Obama's re-election. In 2016, it called the defeat of Donald J. Trump as 'crucial.' You can look these things up.

Anyone care to speculate as to why?

We've got to do something about climate change

The Arctic Ocean is warming up, icebergs are growing scarcer and in some places the seals are finding the water too hot according to a report to the Commerce Department yesterday from Consulate at Bergen Norway.

Reports from fishermen, seal hunters and explorers all point to a radical change in climate conditions and hitherto unheard-of temperatures in the Arctic zone.

Exploration expeditions report that scarcely any ice has been met as far north as 81 degrees 29 minutes.

Soundings to a depth of 3,100 meters showed the gulf stream still very warm.

Great masses of ice have been replaced by moraines of earth and stones, the report continued, while at many points well known glaciers have entirely disappeared.

Very few seals and no white fish are found in the eastern Arctic, while vast shoals of herring and smelts which have never before ventured so far north, are being encountered in the old seal fishing grounds.

Within a few years it is predicted that due to the ice melt the sea will rise and make most coast cities uninhabitable.

I must apologize. I neglected to mention that this report was from November 2, 1922 , as reported by the AP and published in The Washington Post 95 years ago. This must have been caused by the Model T Ford's emissions or possibly from horse and cattle farts. Or, quite possibly, Al Gore's grandfather.

Development 'exposes the fraudulent priorities of contemporary higher education'

High school students who aspire to be social justice warriors are increasingly finding higher education options available to them, as more than 100 colleges and universities in the U.S. now offer formal academic programs in “social justice,” according to research by the College Fix.

The Fix discovered at least 64 American colleges that offer minors in social justice or a markedly similar field. At least 18 schools offer four-year degrees, and at least 15 offer master’s degrees.

There are even two universities that offer Ph.D. programs with a social justice focus: The University of Massachusetts-Amherst (Social Justice Education) and Fielding Graduate School in California (Inclusive Leadership for Social Justice).

Schools with social justice programs range from small private universities, such as Carleton College in Minnesota (B.A. in Human Rights and Social Justice), to large public universities, such as the University of Michigan (minor in Peace and Social Justice), to religious institutions such as Northeastern Seminary (M.A. in Theology and Social Justice). Even Cornell, an Ivy League school, has an MPA program in Human Rights and Social Justice.

These schools offer a wide variety of social justice-themed classes.

At Merrimack College, for instance, social justice majors can take a class called “Thinking Green: Environmental Justice, Gender, and Animal Rights.” Students in the University of Iowa’s social justice B.A. program can learn about the “History of American Inequality.” Ohio Wesleyan University offers a course on “Feminist Perspectives on Race and Gender in the Media.”

At the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh, social justice minors can learn about “Gay & Lesbian Literature,” while Oregon State University offers an entire program in “Food in Culture and Social Justice,” including a course titled “Food and Ethnic Identity: Decolonizing Our Food and Body.”

Scott Greer, deputy editor at the Daily Caller, can only shake his head at the rise of these non-traditional academic programs.

“Social justice degrees are a logical conclusion to the prevalent trends within higher education that stress teaching left-wing orthodoxy over real-life skills,” Greer told WND. “It’s unclear how this major will help a student navigate a real workplace environment, and is likely only going to encourage them to identify every little thing as a representation of white supremacy.”

Greer, author of “No Campus For White Men: The Transformation of Higher Education Into Hateful Indoctrination,” said there is one good thing about the creation of social justice majors: “It exposes the fraudulent priorities of contemporary higher education.”

Political correctness is just the beginning. The situation on college campuses is worse than you could ever imagine – and America’s future is at stake. Don’t miss the political blockbuster of 2017 – “No Campus For White Men” by Scott Greer.

International journalist and educator Alex Newman, co-author of “Crimes of the Educators,” said the appearance of social justice degrees is a natural byproduct of a public K-12 education system that no longer prioritizes real education.

“After generations of dumbing down and indoctrinating children in government schools, it was inevitable that this would happen someday,” Newman told WND. “As Dr. Samuel Blumenfeld and I show in ‘Crimes of the Educators,’ this sort of lunacy is the bitter fruit produced by the poison tree that is the ‘progressive,’ anti-Christian, anti-liberty, collectivist government education inflicted on the American people by socialist humanist John Dewey and his radical cohorts. Now the proverbial chickens are coming home to roost.”

Newman foresees devastating consequences for the country: “Legions of brainwashed social-justice warriors with ‘community organizing’ skills and thorough statist and humanist indoctrination will constantly agitate for more government, less freedom, more globalism, more insanity, and more tax funding to feed the perpetually expanding beast that has been unleashed on America and the world.”

Newman suspects those who graduate with social justice degrees will have trouble getting real-world jobs that create value for society. On the contrary, he worries about the adverse effects they will have on society.

“The danger, if taxpayers and voters are not vigilant, is that these indoctrinated overgrown children will end up burrowing their way into government and becoming a permanent parasite class that sustains itself by leeching off the taxpayer and making ever-more ludicrous demands,” Newman warned.

“These taxpayer-funded universities are producing zealots to wage war on God, Christianity and liberty on an industrial scale. Taxpayers and voters must demand an end to it.”

Political correctness is just the beginning. The situation on college campuses is worse than you could ever imagine – and America’s future is at stake. Don’t miss the political blockbuster of 2017 – “No Campus For White Men” by Scott Greer.
