Students at George Mason University in Fairfax County, Virginia, were recently interviewed on camera about Republican President Donald Trump’s first 100 days in office.
As you might expect, given the liberal bent of many college students, they used a few negatives to describe Trump and the job he’s doing so far.
“Horrible,” one student said.

“Really, just a liar,” another student noted. “Like, pathologically. It’s kind of insane.”
“It’s kind of scary,” yet another student noted. “You wake up every morning, and you see something ridiculous.”
Not so surprising.
But then the Campus Reform interviewers began their experiment: Rattling off accomplishments they attributed to Trump — except the accomplishments were actually the work of Trump’s Democratic predecessor, Barack Obama.
Remember Obama’s “apology tour”? Going around to Middle Eastern nations and telling audiences how poorly the United States had been behaving?
Well, the liberal college students apparently didn’t. Because when the apology tour was couched as something Trump did, they had nothing good to say.
“You have to carry the image of the U.S., and he hasn’t done that so well,” one student said of Trump, shaking his head at the measure, apparently clueless that it was Obama’s doing.

Another student had an even more comical answer: “The people he’s apologizing to are not people he should not be apologizing to. Saudi Arabia, the Gulf monarchies — dictatorships everywhere.”
When students were asked about Trump’s stimulus package — another Obama feat — the answers were just as funny.
“Knowing that Donald Trump is the one proposing it probably means there’s, like, some turd in the punch bowl somewhere,” one student said.
Another compared it to “Weimar Germany when there was a lot of hatred of foreigners taking jobs …”
The best answer of all — when students were asked about Trump relaxing lawsuit regulations, another Obama deal — was from one guy who actually said, “Being in a law class right now, I don’t like it at all.”
And when the truth was revealed to the students?
“Oh, wow,” a couple of them said.
The mind is a terrible thing to waste.

Obama "considered" being gay! Does that mean being gay is a choice?

Obama’s new biography reveals that he ‘considered gayness’ during college

A new biography about former President Barack Obama reveals that he had “considered gayness” during his college years.
The new biography titled Rising Star: The Making of Barack Obama, contains Pulitzer Prize winner David Garrow telling the tale of Obama’s friendship with an openly gay assistant professor at Occidental College named Lawrence Goldyn. According to the Daily Caller, Garrow writes that “Goldyn made a huge impact on Barry Obama.” 
From the Daily Caller:
“Almost a quarter century later, asked about his understanding of gay issues, Obama enthusiastically said, ‘my favorite professor my first year in college was one of the first openly gay people that I knew…He was a terrific guy” with whom Obama developed a ‘friendship beyond the classroom.’”
Obama says that Goldyn’s influence made him think about his sexuality, but ultimately decided against the “less challenging and demanding” homosexual relationship, and decided to stay straight.
“Three years later, Obama wrote somewhat elusively to his first intimate girlfriend that he had thought about and considered gayness, but ultimately had decided that a same-sex relationship would be less challenging and demanding than developing one with the opposite sex,” Garrow wrote. “But there is no doubting that Goldyn gave eighteen-year-old Barry a vastly more positive and uplifting image of gay identity and self-confidence than he had known in Honolulu.”
Garrow was asked on The Jamie Weinstein Show whether or not Obama actually attempted any kind of physical relationship with the same sex, to which Garrow replied “I think anyone and everyone, no matter what their role in life deserves a certain basic degree of privacy, in that context.”

Michael Moore the great humanitarian is an example of left wing childishness and hatefulness...a foreign policy imbecile.

MSNBC host says he hopes Trump succeeds on North Korea, here’s Michael Moore’s response

Michael Moore had a curious reaction to MSNBC host Chris Hayes telling him that he hoped President Donald Trump succeeded in negotiating a peaceful resolution to the tension in the Korean Peninsula. The interaction occurred Friday on Hayes’ MSNBC show.
“When I read the news from North Korea there was another missile test that failed,” Hayes explained, “we’ll be getting probably some official statements on that. I find myself genuinely rooting for him to handle the Korean situation well, I mean there’s all sorts of areas where I am, you are rooting for the man to be competent and effective.”
“I don’t know if I agree with that,” Moore responded.
“You’re not rooting him to deal with North Korea well?!” Hayes interrupted, shocked.
“It’s like rooting for a six-year-old who suddenly swiped his dad’s car,” Moore exclaimed, “and figured out how to take it down the road.”
“I’m not rooting for the six year old to get on the highway and drive that car!” he explained. “I want the six year old off the highway, that’s essentially what we got. Just the implication of what you’re saying means that he could possibly find a sane way and a safe way to figure out how to deal with it.”
“I would like to avoid nuclear war and I’m fervently hoping that the president of the United States navigates us in a safe direction away from that,” Hayes countered.
“Well, you got the wrong person,” Moore interjected.
Tensions are ramping up in the Korean Peninsula as North Korea persists in missile testing even as the global community objects, led by the United States. After being warned that more missile testing could result in “major, major conflict” by Trump, Kim Jong Un ordered another missile launch Friday.
Trump used his Twitter account to comment on the firing, saying, “North Korea disrespected the wishes of China & its highly respected President when it launched, though unsuccessfully, a missile today. Bad!”
Reports indicate the missile failed and exploded soon after being fired. Analysts say that even a failure can help North Korean scientists further along their development of military weaponry.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg finally notices that Democrats are tyrants and not the least bit like Republicans.

SCOTUS Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg laments over recent Dem obstruction in Senate

During a forum hosted at Georgetown University on Thursday, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg lamented over the recent brutal battle to confirm Neil Gorsuch to the high court.
Ginsburg, who was confirmed to the court in Aug. 1993 by a vote of 96-3, noted during her remarks that her confirmation process garnered bipartisan support, even from staunch Republicans like Sen. Orrin Hatch (Utah). That, despite her career with the American Civil Liberties Union, which is widely seen as a liberal organization, prior to her nomination to the Washington D.C., appellate court in 1980.
That’s the way a Supreme Court nomination and confirmation process should go, Ginsburg, 84, said.
“What I remember was the collegiality, the civility of those hearings, that entire process,” she said, according to the Washington Examiner. “For Justice Breyer who came one year after, it was pretty much the same — a collegial atmosphere.”
“Watching the most recent confirmations, I wish there was a way that we could wave a magic wand and get back to the way it was and the way it should be,” she added.
Ginsburg explained that the person she believes is most happy to see Gorsuch on the court is Associate Justice Elena Kagen, who prior to Gorsuch’s confirmation was the high court’s most junior justice. That position comes with unique responsibilities, such as being the head of the “kitchen committee,” taking notes and answering the door when the justices meet in private. Now that Gorsuch is on the bench, those responsibilities are his.
During her remarks, Ginsburg also touched on her relationship with Antonin Scalia, who suddenly died last year and was succeeded on the court by Gorsuch. As she has often said since her good friend Scalia passed, Ginsburg reminded the forum that two people who are ideological opposites can still be the best of friends.
“Two people who disagree about very important things can still very much enjoy each other,” she said.

The race to become the biggest social justice warrior on campus. There's nothing like the racism of white's trying to appear non racist! The rebirth of the white man's burden!

Geology professor accepting students into her course based on race and income

Geology professor Linda Reinan of Pomona College distributed a flier to students promoting her class and declaring that she would be selecting students based on race and income level, the conservative Claremont Independent reported.
Reinan’s course, “Southern California Earthquakes and Water,” is an introductory course that focuses on the geological “challenges” of Southern California. The class has a low enrollment cap of 15 students, and acceptance for the class is done on a permission-only, or PERM, basis, where the student must write a written request to the professor to attend. The professor then chooses who can or who cannot attend.
Normally, PERMs are a first-come, first-served process, with students who didn’t submit a request in time placed on a waiting list. If preferential treatment is given, it’s typically to students who need the course to fulfill their major course requirements over students who are taking the class for general credit.
Reinan is not following this line, however, and encouraged students to detail their background in their written requests so as to better “diversify perspectives in the course.”
From the flyer, which the Independent posted:
This low-enrollment course (max: 15 students) is by PERM only. I encourage students who PERM this course to indicate how their background, experiences, and/or interests could contribute to diversifying perspectives in the course. In resolving PERMs I will strive to identify students for whom the small-section setting has the potential to be of particular benefit. I am especially interested in seeing PERM requests from students of color, first-generation or low-income students, international, and students early in their college career (first two years); such students are especially encouraged to apply.

It is currently unclear how diverse backgrounds, race, or financial situations will affect the study of introductory geology.
Pomona College was recently in the news when three self-identified black students sent a letter to the president of the college, David Oxtoby, demanding action be taken against conservative journalists of the Claremont Independent for their reporting on a Black Lives Matter group physically blocking students and faculty from attending a speech from a Black Lives Matter critic. The students also demanded Oxtoby apologize for promoting free speech in an email and called truth a “white supremacist concept.”

Another example of liberal irrational uncontrollable hatred

Liberal filmmaker tweets offensive joke about Trump, and gets immediately burned for it

 
Liberal filmmaker tweets offensive joke about Trump, and gets immediately burned for it
Joss Whedon was assailed on Twitter for a crude joke he made about President Trump using cancer survivors as fodder. Image Source: YouTube. 

Filmmaker Joss Whedon is known more for his creative movies, but fans that follow him on Twitter were treated to a pretty offensive joke he posted about President Donald Trump.
He has since deleted the tweet, but many caught screenshots of it:
The post showed a picture of Speaker Paul Ryan welcoming some young women to the U.S. Capitol, with Whedon’s snarky caption, “Tonight on White House Wife Hunt, Donny makes host P. Ryan give 2 more contestants the ‘Not a 10’ card.” He appeared to be making a reference to Trump’s prior career as a reality television host and producer.
But unfortunately for Whedon, he either didn’t investigate what the picture really was about, or he didn’t care. According to the original posting of the photo from Ryan, the young women are cancer survivors.
“Advocacy is not limited to adults. These Wisconsin teens shared some powerful stories with me about their fight against childhood cancer,” he posted on his official account.
Whedon was immediately and brutally skewered on Twitter for the offensive joke that appeared to imply sexual relations between President Trump and the teenage cancer survivors.
Here’s some of the less bleep-worthy reaction:
Whedon eventually responded to the criticism and deleted the tweet, posting this as an explanation:

Just like Obama it's always someone else's fault: CNN chief: ‘Journalism is threatened’ by the Trump administration

CNN’s president is worried about the future of the press.
“Journalism is threatened by senior officials in our own government,” Jeff Zucker said during an Overseas Press Club of America awards gala Thursday night, New York Times reporter Liam Stack tweeted.
The comment seemed to be a knock on President Donald Trump’s administration, which is entering its 100th day this weekend. And it is not the first time Zucker has jabbed the White House.
In January, he claimed Trump is seeking to “delegitimize journalism.”
“It’s just unfortunate that the most powerful person in the world is trying to delegitimize journalism and an organization that plays such a vital role in our democracy,” Zucker told New York magazine. “I think he’s entitled to his opinion, but it’s — to use one of his favorite words — sad.”
Those remarks came in response to Trump calling CNN “fake news” after the cable news network published a bombshell report showing U.S. intelligence officials had briefed the president on claims that the Kremlin had collected compromising information about him.
Just days before, BuzzFeed News published the unedited — and unverified — opposition-research dossier referenced in the intelligence briefing. The package also included allegations about potential ties between Russian officials and Trump campaign associates.
Trump has been very successful in irking reporters by referring to their journalism as “fake news.” In fact, CNN’s White House correspondent, Jim Acosta, has countered the president’s claim with the Twitter hashtag “#realnews.”
In February, Trump claimed via Twitter that “the FAKE NEWS media” — which, in his mind, includes CNN, the New York Times, ABC, NBC, and CBS — “is the enemy of the American People!”
Earlier that same month, Trump tweeted that CNN was an “unwatchable” network.
“The only way he knows this is if he’s watching it,” Zucker told the New York Post at the time.

HS official screams at teen pro-life activists: ‘I don’t give a f*** what you think Jesus tells me’...The Left does not tolerate opposition

HS official screams at teen pro-life activists: ‘I don’t give a f*** what you think Jesus tells me’

A Pennsylvania public school assistant principal was caught on video screaming and cursing at two teenage pro-life activists April 21 and trying to prevent the teens from talking to students outside the high school.
And after STEM Academy in Downingtown got a gander at the video Wednesday, Zach Ruff — STEM’s dean of academics and student life — was placed on administrative leave, WCAU-TV reported.
Video of the entire incident was shot by Conner Haines, 16, who stood on a sidewalk outside STEM Academy with his 19-year-old sister Lauren, both of them holding pro-life signs as vehicles exited the campus at the end of the school day.
The beginning of the clip shows Ruff walking toward the brother and sister and threatening to call police unless they move. Conner Haines refused, telling Ruff it’s a public sidewalk and inviting him to call police if he wants. With that, Ruff stood in front of the activists in an attempt to block students from seeing the signs.
Conner Haines tried engaging with Ruff about abortion, telling him, “Sir, these are image bearers of God.”
But Ruff turned around, faced the camera, pointed at Haines’ sign showing a photo of an aborted fetus and said, “You can go to hell, where they are, too.”
Ruff was also heard moments later yelling at someone else to “turn off the phone! Doesn’t need to be on Snapchat!”
As Conner Haines continued talking to Ruff, the administrator turned around again and said there hasn’t been a “single pregnancy” in the five years he’s been at STEM and there hasn’t been a “single abortion. And you call me a liar while you’re standing out here harassing teenagers. You can go get a friggin’ life.”

When Haines called the fetuses “children,” Ruff got angrier.
“They’re not children, they’re cells! … You’re at a science-based school, those are cells!” he yelled.
Lauren Haines attempted to interject science, but Ruff shot her down in the middle of her sentence, pointing at his body and saying, “Then take it out, and if it can live on its own, it’s friggin’ awesome.”
He also disputed Conner Haines’ insistence that the aborted fetuses were “innocent.” He shot back with, “They’re not innocent, they’re cells. … They’re the size of a dime, they’re cells.”
But when Conner Haines suggested that Ruff turn to Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of his sins, the gloves came completely off, as Ruff turned again and stood inches from Haines’ face and issued a scorching rebuttal.
“Listen here son, alright?” Ruff said with a chuckle. “I’m as gay as the day is long and twice as sunny. I don’t give a f*** what you think Jesus tells me and what I should and should not be doing.”
Ruff also called the Bible a “book of fiction” and told Conner Haines that “you and Trump can go to hell.”

Lauren Haines attempted to engage Ruff further, but he gestured closely to her and said, “Shut up and leave me and my children alone.”
Then he got in Conner Haines’ face again.
“Shut your mouth and don’t talk to my students,” Ruff said with a sharp edge, his index finger quivering as he ordered Haines. “You do not have permission to speak and engage.”
When Haines said he had the right to be there, Ruff growled back: “No, you do not. You are harassing public school students, and I will call the police if you don’t shut up.”

Conner Haines told the Liberator that Ruff’s behavior surprised him.
“When [Ruff] was up in my face, my heart started beating crazy fast,” he told the Liberator. “But I wasn’t really scared because I had my camera running, there were many people watching, and God has always protected me in the past. I wasn’t expecting so much hostility at a local school. I remember praying quickly for wisdom.”
Haines sure needed it, as Ruff next appeared to grab his sign, compelling the teen to move backward.
“Stop harassing my children!” Ruff yelled.
That apparently set off one witness who got out of his car and got in Ruff’s face.
“You got a f***in’ problem?” the man yelled at Ruff. “He’s on public property.”

Ruff retorted, “He’s not allowed to yell at my students.”
“He can do whatever the f*** he wants,” the man told Ruff.
When Ruff told the man he’s holding up traffic, the man replied, “I don’t give a s**t.”
Ruff then threatened to call the police, and the man smirked before walking off and saying, “Another loony, wacko liberal.”
Seemingly proving the man’s point, Ruff next began singing “I Love a Parade” at top volume to drown out the Haines siblings — he even attempted some dance steps.

When Conner Haines spoke loudly to passing motorists, telling them that Christ can set them free from their sins, Ruff turned around and yelled back, “Public school, we don’t believe in that here!”
Ruff kept up his loud singing intermittently for the rest of the video.
Patricia McGlone, director of public information for the Downingtown School District, told WCAU that Ruff will remain on leave pending a formal investigation and that parents will have the opportunity to express their concerns.
“We do not condone or support the conduct expressed in the video and are deeply disappointed that this incident occurred,” the school’s statement read. “His conduct does not represent the values of the school district or the respect we expect our employees to show for the civil rights of others.”
A Facebook user identifying herself as a STEM student stood up for Ruff and said the pro-life activists were blocking traffic and distracting drivers with their signs, WCAU said.
“Mr. Ruff had every right to defend his students,” the commenter said, according to the station. “What they are not showing in this video is what the posters actually depicted. There was a horrendous image of a dead baby covered in blood. This image distracted me, and I almost rear-ended the person in front of me.”
According to Ruff’s page on the school’s website, he’s in the final stages of his doctoral dissertation at Drexel University in Philadelphia “in their Educational Leadership and Management program, and hopes to complete his research this academic year. Mr. Ruff received his Principal Certification from Penn State Great Valley’s campus, a Masters degree from Neumann University and his undergraduate work was done in his home state of Vermont.”
Here’s the full video of the incident. (Content warning: Rough language):
