Attorney General Bill Barr will resign in disgrace, 12/23/2020 after helping to orchestrate the pre-election coverup of the Hunter and Joe Biden DOJ investigation.
Hey, AG Barr, and the rest of DC, we are not children. Hiding information like Fauci, and Jerome Adams and others have done is despicable. People deserve the facts, they don’t need to be managed.
The nanny state, deep state, inside the beltway idiots want to keep the voters, ignorant, uninformed, and dependent in order to maintain their own power. Completely disgusting.
Is Barr like that? Hiding vital information from the voters makes it seem that way.
If at any time since Robert Bork the democrat party had really cared about a true hearing and not an attempted character assassination, I’d have thought the hearings were worthwhile. Given the last 30-35 years hearings of a republican nominated candidate are pretty much useless, they should cut them out and just vote. The republicans (for better or worse) don’t treat democrat nominees like this.
Don’t give the the democrats a platform for demagoguing.
“Hate speech” is a term used by fascists, socialists, communists and other authoritarians to shut people up – when they can’t win an argument that involves liberty vs control, they want people to be shutdown and shut up. It is a slippery, subjective concept that allows those defining it to silence those with whom they disagree.
Always look to see who the arbiter of what is “hate speech” and you’ll see who will benefit from it in terms of wealth and power.
A letter to Bucknell President Bravman:
Dear President Bravman,
I am completely disgusted to read that “A professor at Bucknell University tweeted out last week that he wished death on Rush Limbaugh,”(https://www.thecollegefix.com/professor-wishes-death-on-rush-limbaugh-attacks-republicans-on-social-media/ ) particularly after insinuating that a US House of Representatives member should be hanged last year.
First as an alumni, seeing Bucknell’s name in the context of Michael Drexler wishing death on someone in a news article that is circulated worldwide is deeply disturbing. Does anyone, let alone a professional, want to have their alma mater brought up in such a manner? Does Bucknell have plans to prevent such events in the future? Do professors have any standards that they must follow, like morality clauses in professional athlete contracts, so as to avoid painting the University in a bad light? When you see patterns of public behavior of a person wishing death on people, there should be a concern on how it reflects upon the institution and professors should, frankly, have better judgement than to do so without the need of contract terms.
A second concern is, of course, about current students and faculty at Bucknell. If someone is publicly wishing death to at least several people, I would be concerned about their stability as it relates to on-campus violence against people with whom Drexler disagrees whether they are students, faculty, administrators, or even alumni. What is Bucknell doing in order to promote a safe campus environment that is open to viewpoints, particularly those that are anti-fascist, anti-communist, anti-socialist, – in short anti-authoritarian – and pro-liberty? I am concerned that someone wishing death on people and publicly calling Professor Riley (no relation) a “white supremacist skinhead” (from the article) might be temperamentally unfit to be educating students safely.
I have to say that during my four years at Bucknell, not only did none of my professors ever wish death upon anyone or call students or other professors names, neither did the swim coaches, administrators, staff or anyone else with whom I interacted. The head swim coach (Dick Russell) insisted that when we went to swim meets, both home and away, we “look neat and clean” (nice shirt, (often) ties, no scruffiness) because we were “representing Bucknell”. Professors today should have as much sense as he did. Which leads to my next question.
How lax are the current hiring standards that Bucknell is hiring and promoting to tenured professor people who are immature and immorally evil that they would wish death on someone in a public forum where they are associated with Bucknell? Does Bucknell do anything to promote tolerance among faculty members and promote mental health of faculty members who are advocating violence among sitting members of Congress, calling other faculty members vile names and wishing death on public figures?
Seeing some of the anti-free speech protests on campus recently makes me concerned about the direction the University has taken, but I do commend the school for standing up for free speech such as allowing Heather Mac Donald to speak last year.
A University should be about civil discourse, not vile names, threats and the like whether or not you disagree with someone or not.
Rule of Law vs Rule of Whim?
Harkening back to previous comments about the difference between the Rule of Law and the Rule of a Whim ( http://rights.com/2000/11/20/the-rule-of-law-or-the-rule-of-whim/ ) Federal district judge James Robart of Seattle’s recent ruling embodies the difference between the rule of law and the rule of whim.
Federal immigration law, Section 1182(f), could not be clearer:
Whenever the President finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate.
When the judiciary ignores the law, the meaning of the “law” is lost. We are then no longer a country of laws, not men, we are a country of men’s whims, not law.
“I want to be absolutely clear that we have never worked with any government agency from any country to create a backdoor in any of our products or services. We have also never allowed access to our servers. And we never will.” “None of us should accept that the government or a company or anybody should have access to all of our private information. This is a basic human right. We all have a right to privacy. We shouldn’t give it up. We shouldn’t give in to scare-mongering.”

UK Labour politician, Mayor of Rochdale Cllr Carol Wardle, announcing the result of the election saying to the Labor Candidate Liz McInnes: “It would have been that result whatever it said.”
So, there she is apparently stating she was going to fix the election no matter what.
Watch how Aaron King, Ankeny, Iowa Police Office lies and try to twist this citizen’s words to mean something he didn’t say, and tries to trick him into stating he had marijuana on his car. Not a trustworthy officer if this is any indication:
Caldwell Idaho Police don’t like being videotaped and then state “You don’t have any legal rights now because right now you just broke the law,” the officer replies. The department is now investigating.
This recording is a little over two minutes, the full 20 minute recording has not been released in order to prevent the police from falsifying their reports around the video.
Clemson University required students to submit sexual history or face disciplinary action. One questions the HIPAA compliance for the survey when student names are linked to sexual history. What protections are in place to comply with HIPAA? How long have those protections been in place?
Requests for comments from Clemson about the HIPAA compliance for this program have not been answered.
