Professor says he was investigated for sexual harassment because he disagreed with women - The College Fix

Professor says he was investigated for sexual harassment because he disagreed with women - The College Fix
"Using Title IX to ‘punish other people for expressing views they don’t like’
Image result for college investigation memeA male professor who underwent a yearlong Title IX investigation claims that “professional disagreements” with female colleagues have been redefined as sexual harassment.
But J. Martin Rochester doesn’t blame the University of Missouri-St. Louis’s Title IX staffers. 
In a post for the Martin Center for Academic Renewal, the international relations professor said they were “merely creatures of the system that the Obama Administration created.”
Rochester told The College Fix he’s still teaching at UMSL and “publishing scholarship,” though he never did learn the exact allegations against him or receive a final report that formally cleared his name..."

As Iran Test-Launches New Ballistic Missile, US Navy Vet Reveals Iranian Regime Is Paying North Korea $3 Billion For Nuclear Weapons Technology

As Iran Test-Launches New Ballistic Missile, US Navy Vet Reveals Iranian Regime Is Paying North Korea $3 Billion For Nuclear Weapons Technology:

Image result for flickr commons images nuclear iran"Less than a day after Iran showed off its new long-range Khorramshahr ballistic missile, which has a range of about 1,200 miles and can carry multiple warheads, the Islamic Republic published a video with images of the test-launch of the missile, which is capable of reaching Israel.

“The Khorramshahr missile has become smaller in size and more tactical and it will be operational in the near future,” Press TV in Iran reported."

Articles: It Was the Deep State that Colluded with the Russians, Not Trump
Image result for “The election was hacked!”"As more and more leaks about the ongoing “Russian collusion” witch hunt by Robert Mueller appear in print, it seems to me that if Russia had been trying to erode our faith in our institutions, the Deep State is accomplishing what Russia failed to do.
The Obama claque’s efforts were initially intended to help Clinton when they thought she would win and no one would know about their crimes. 
Then they continued the unlawful spying to cover up their role in the worst case of misuse of federal power in our history, to effect the removal or emasculation of the President, and  now they are desperate to cover up their illegal actions when all that failed.
A. Where we are today on “Russian collusion”?
Instapundit tweeted the answer succinctly: “The election was hacked!” turns out to mean, “Russia bought some ads on Facebook.”
Facebook is turning over ads presumably purchased by Russians during the campaign. Good -- let’s see them. As the article notes:
The announcement that Facebook would share the ads with the Senate and House intelligence committees came after the social network spent two weeks on the defensive. The company faced calls for greater transparency about 470 Russia-linked accounts  -- in which fictional people posed as American activists -- which were taken down after they had promoted inflammatory messages on divisive issues. Facebook had previously angered congressional staff by showing only a sample of the ads, some of which attacked Hillary Clinton or praised Donald J. Trump.
As Tom Maguire reminds us, it would be unwise to assume this was a one-sided campaign: “Let's see all the ads and find out whether Russia was winding up both sides. Back in the day it was believed Russia backed anti-fracking groups in Europe. Why not also in the US?..”

Islamic Contract Marriages: When Sheikhs Marry, Rape and Divorce Child Brides, All in One Week - Geller Report

Giving More Taxpayer Dollars to Universities Won’t Make Michigan More Educated [Michigan Capitol Confidential]

Giving More Taxpayer Dollars to Universities Won’t Make Michigan More Educated [Michigan Capitol Confidential]:
"In The Detroit News, Michigan Tech President Glenn Mroz argues for more taxpayer spending on state universities. Students that get degrees, he explains, earn more than those without them. 
But he never says that giving state universities more taxpayers dollars will result in more students earning degrees. 
It won’t.
State universities charge tuition to their students, but the institutions also receive direct taxpayer dollars. Some states spend spend more taxpayer dollars on their universities than Michigan does. 
And there are states that have a more credentialed population than Michigan. 
There isn’t a connection between the two.
This can be seen on a chart. 
This looks at a state’s spending on universities and the percentage of its adult population that holds a college degree.
Wyoming and Alaska are the two states that spend a lot on higher education and have middling levels of educational attainment.
Michigan lawmakers are already taking $1.6 billion from taxpayers to give to state universities. 
They ask little in return for it. 
Residents should be asking lawmakers to dial back that spending if it has been sold as a promise to get more graduates in Michigan."

At the Mackinac Republican Leadership Conference, Johnson said she wants to create a temporary license plate that would make it easier for a police officer to spot and stop motorists who are driving without insurance — a pervasive problem in Detroit because of high auto insurance rates.
...Crain's has previously reported on how seven-day plans have become a common way to avoid paying high auto insurance premiums in Detroit by letting drivers buy $199 seven-day plans, get their vehicles registered for 52 weeks and then drive without insurance for the other 51 weeks of the year..."

Puerto Rico’s Power Woes Are Decades in the Making - WSJ

Years of underinvestment and massive debts left the energy grid vulnerable

Image result for we deserve the government we electTOA BAJA, Puerto Rico—As residents grapple with power outages across the entire island, the task of turning the lights back on falls to an electrical utility saddled with rickety infrastructure, workforce reductions and financial troubles so deep it declared a form of bankruptcy in July.
Earlier this month, Hurricane Irma sideswiped the island, knocking out power to about 70% of the customers of the Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority, or Prepa.
...“This is a major disaster, we have lost 100% of our energy, there has been a lot of flooding,” Gov. Ricardo Rosselló said Sunday.
“People don’t think there will be light until after Christmas,”
...Power outages are common.
A fire at one of the utility’s plants in September triggered a blackout across the island that left many customers without power for days.
Yet prices are high.
In April, Prepa’s average electricity rate was 20.1 cents per kilowatt-hour, down from 25 cents in 2013 but still close to double the average mainland U.S. rate of about 12 cents, according to Moody’s..."

CNN Calls 'Ordinary People ... White Supremacists by Default'
"...CNN's John Blake published a story blaming "ordinary people" for making Charlottesville possible, and quoting a history professor who called such people "white supremacists by default."
Image result for hillary racist meme"We are a country with a few million passionate white supremacists — and tens of millions of white supremacists by default," Mark Naison, a political activist and history professor at Fordham University in New York City, told CNN. 
"You have to have millions of people who are willing to be bystanders, who push aside evidence of racism, Islamophobia, or sexism. You can't have one without the other."
Blake, the CNN reporter, paraphrased activists like Naison saying "the tragedy that took place in Charlottesville this month could not have occurred without the tacit acceptance of millions of ordinary, law-abiding Americans who helped create such a radically explosive climate."
He argued that "it's the ordinary people — the voters who elected a reality TV star with a record of making racially insensitive comments, the people who move out of the neighborhood when people of color move in, the family members who ignore a relative's anti-Semitism — who give these type of men room to operate, they say..."
