Student Reporter under Attack at Brandeis Univ. for Reporting On anti-Police Tweets

Posted by  ▪  December 24, 2014

Should reporters self-censor for fear of internet reaction to a truthful news story? Progressives at Brandeis think so.

Daniel Mael is a senior at Brandeis University in Waltham, Massachusetts. That’s the university that last spring canceled a commencement speech by Ayaan Hirsi Ali. Ardently pro-Israel, Mael has had run-ins with progressive groups on campus like J Street. Mael also is a prolific reporter for Truth Revolt, in addition to writing guest…

Satanic Holiday Display Damaged in Florida’s Capitol

Posted by  ▪  December 24, 2014

Pray for the people who put up this display. They need it.

The first questions one must ask are, When did Florida begin allowing Satanic holiday displays in their capitol at Christmas, and why would Satanists feel the need to celebrate the birth of Christ? While I don’t know the answer to the first question, I’ll take a guess at the second. Modern Satanists, who…

Israeli-free hummus can’t fill Progressive Jews’ void

Posted by  ▪  December 23, 2014

Israel “a pretext for setting loose emotions that may originate somewhere else”

I have had a Times of Israel column bookmarked since last June. It’s a column that spoke to the phenomenon of “progressive” Jews obsessed with proving how much they hate Israel, so much so that hating Israel becomes their every reason for being and their identity. We see that type around campuses, sometimes…

3 Ways Chuck Schumer’s Airfare Probe Ignores Economic Realities

Posted by  ▪  December 23, 2014

Economic populism relies on disregarding reality

Last week, Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said he wants the Department of Justice and the Department of Transportation to investigate why airfares are not decreasing along with falling oil prices. On the surface, Schumer’s observation makes sense. Crude oil and jet fuel prices are strongly correlated, and on average jet fuel comprises…

Recently a UAW affiliate representing graduate student instructors p…
