      Trump purportedly taps Sheriff Clarke for Homeland Security post  (Fox 05/17/2017)
• 
The law-and-order sheriff has frequently told Black Lives Matters protesters to "stop trying to fix the police, fix the ghetto" and referred to Ferguson demonstrators as "vultures on a roadside carcass."
      North Carolina school district recalls yearbooks over Trump quote  (Fox 05/12/2017)

• 
"Every senior was given the opportunity to choose a quote.  It was her right as an American to choose any quote under the sun."
      Michigan Lawmakers Seek to Suspend or Expel Students Who Infringe on Free Speech  ()
• 
Students who repeatedly infringe on others' free speech on campus may soon face a one-year suspension or even expulsion...
• 
The state lawmaker says he hopes the legislation would prevent so-called "shout-down vetoes" of controversial campus speakers in Michigan.
• 
"You have a right to express your concern with [a speaker], but you don't have the right to shut them down during the actual speech...  It's time we look at people who are prohibiting free speech rights, not trying to use that right."
• 
The Campus Free Speech Act would also allow those silenced to take civil action against anyone who has stopped them from speaking.
      Betsy DeVos booed during graduation address in Florida  (Fox 05/10/2017)
• 
"It's important to understand that people will disagree, but that does not mean that you roll over and play dead because you disagree.  This is a good day for us.  Can you imagine how many institutions would love to have the secretary of education, the highest educational officer in the land, to be their commencement speaker and hopefully open new doors for this institution?"
      Conservative Millennial to Students: There Are No 'Safe Spaces' in Real Life  (Fox 05/03/2017)
• 
"Since when did college become a place for parents to ship their kids off to become indoctrinated and brainwashed?"
• 
"Since when did professors stop teaching critical thinking and mental fortitude?  Since when did it become more important to protect people from getting their feelings hurt than preparing for real life?"
• 
"Because here's the deal, college students: there are no 'safe spaces' in real life."
• 
"We're seeing these perpetually hurt feelings all over the country, and the scary thing is, you can't reason with these social justice warrior college students."
• 
"Not because they have a good argument, but because they don't have one, because their protests and their riots are largely based on feelings and on a subjective interpretation of what's right and wrong."
• 
"They are becoming the totalitarian fascists that use physical violence to shut down 'violent speech,'"
• 
"It's extremely hard for me to understand how they don't see their own hypocrisy."
      McCain: 'I'd Rather Get a Root Canal' Than See Michael Moore's One-Man Show  (Fox 05/02/2017)

      'An Annual Narcissism Fest': Malkin Slams White House Correspondents' Dinner  (Fox 04/30/2017)
• 
"I thought that what Trump did, in leaving the swamp and doing that rally last night, was absolutely brilliant."
• 
... Minhaj's jokes were "vile" and "not funny," and the whole event illuminated just how anti-Trump most of the White House media really is.
• 
"This is an annual gathering of news-fakers and Hollywood America-haters and Trump-bashers, who get together to convince themselves that they are absolutely indispensable to American democracy and our constitutional republic," Cruz: Take Billions Seized From El Chapo to Pay for Border Wall http://insider.foxnews.com/2017/04/26/ted-cruz-el-chapo-money-should-pay-mexico-border-wall
• 
Cruz noted that federal prosecutors are eyeing the recovery of about $14 billion in drug profits from Guzman.
• 
"Fourteen billion dollars will go a long way toward building a wall that will keep Americans safe and hinder the illegal flow of drugs, weapons, and individuals across our southern border."
• 
The El Chapo Act is actually an acronym, meaning Ensuring Lawful Collection of Hidden Assets to Provide Order.
• 
Cruz said this morning he's looking for a way to block Democrats' "obstruction" on funding the wall.
      Napolitano Slams NYT Op-Ed Calling For Limits on Free Speech  (Fox 04/25/2017)
• 
"The listener gets to decide what he wants to hear and the speaker gets to decide what she wants to say.  The government has no role in it — that's not me [saying that], that's the Supreme Court of the United States."
      Nordstrom Charging $425 for Fake-Mud Jeans  (Fox 04/25/2017)
• 
"The Barracuda Straight Leg Jeans aren't pants.  They're not even fashion.  They're a costume for wealthy people who see work as ironic – not iconic."
      A physicist's take on the March for Science  (Fox 04/21/2017)

      Oh, shut up: Let's prosecute criminal campus crazies  (Fox 04/20/2017)
• 
Ever tried dealing with a playground bully?  What shuts him (or her, for our politically correct readers) up fastest?  A bloody nose.
• 
Bullies operate on the assumption that they are safe from retribution.
• 
When they find out that's not true, they curdle like spoiled milk.
• 
Until then, their conduct can only spiral further out of control.
• 
That's what's happening at colleges across America.  Students who think they can dictate what is said on their campus are shutting down any point of view they oppose.
• 
That's not youthful indiscretion.  It's a crime.  And the perpetrators should be prosecuted for it.
• 
The students who, masked in balaclavas and paisley handkerchiefs, think the best way to express their opinion is to smash in windows and set fire to cars?
• 
They want their freedom of speech to be unabridged, including acts of violence.
• 
It's time for college administrators and campus police to grow a pair, and prosecute students who engage in these antics.
• 
So let's stop worrying about the students' rights and prosecute the criminals among them.
• 
College life is a time for young people to be exposed to new ideas, to weigh them and decide what works for them as they form their adult personalities.
• 
The message today's students are getting is: agree with me or keep your mouth shut.
• 
That's not education.  It's tyranny.
      Todd Starnes: 'Sanctuary' mayors have American blood on their hands  (Fox 03/28/2017)
• 
I believe the Trump Administration should go a step further.
• 
If an illegal commits a felony crime in a sanctuary city - the mayor of that city should also face criminal charges – from harboring fugitives to aiding and abetting.
• 
Countless Americans would be alive today if sanctuary cities were shut down.
•

      Religious freedom, not money, should drive West in dealing with Saudi Arabia  (Fox 03/28/2017)
• 
This hypocrisy must end.  The free exportation of extremist ideologies — religious or atheistic — is what drives people to violence and the curtailment of freedoms.
• 
The international community must adopt a reciprocal approach to religious tolerance in response to those nations that abuse our freedoms while forbidding freedom among their own.
• 
It is high time that the West, with its evolved understanding of freedom of conscience and liberty, begins to ask for this kind of reciprocity in bilateral relations with nations.
• 
The act would forbid a national of any country that limits the free exercise of religion from spending money in the United States to promote a religion.
      Sanctuary city mayors fire back at Trump administration's threat to cut fed funding  (Fox 03/28/2017)
• 
"I strongly urge our nation's states and cities and counties to consider carefully the harm they are doing to their citizens by refusing to enforce our immigration laws and to rethink these policies."
• 
"Such policies make their cities and states less safe, public safety as well as national security are at stake, and put them at the risk of losing federal dollars."
• 
"The American people want and deserve a lawful system of immigration that keeps us safe, and one that serves national interests."
• 
"This expectation is reasonable, just, and our government has the duty to meet it and we will meet it."
      Team Trump cites stats, anecdotes to show dangers of sanctuary cities  (Fox 03/28/2017)
• 
"Failure to deport aliens who are convicted of criminal offenses puts whole communities at risk, especially immigrant communities in the very sanctuary jurisdictions that seek to protect the perpetrators."

      ‘Day Without a Woman’ strike shuts down schools as teachers bolt  (Fox 03/08/2017)
• 
"The U.S.  has the highest proportion of women in senior management positions (43 percent) of any country in the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (women comprise 47 percent of the U.S.  labor force); the U.S.  was ranked eighth globally in gender equality by the World Economic Forum; 24 percent of working American women are in professional fields (compared to only 16 percent of working American men); 46 percent of American firms are owned or co-owned by women."
• 
"Despite rhetoric to the contrary, men and women are different.  Our needs and desires differ significantly from those of men.  Our priorities are not the same, and neither is the way we seek to balance our lives with our careers.  The decisions that we make in regards to career and family contribute to the perception of a glass ceiling."
• 
"The only people who are going to be affected by this are women — poor women who cannot afford to miss wages or pay for day care."
      Arrests made after some 'March 4 Trump' rallies turn violent  (Fox 03/05/2017)
•

      Wegmans supermarket sells out of Trump wine after proposed boycott  (Fox 02/20/2017)
• 
"For various reasons, we are sometimes asked to stop selling a product.  Our response is always the same, no matter the product: How a product performs is our single measure for what stays on our shelves and what goes."
      Erick Erickson: The intelligence community vs.  Trump.  We're watching a low level coup, America  (Fox 02/16/2017)
• 
The wisest course of action is for Attorney General Jeff Sessions to name an independent counsel to examine two questions and for both sides to stand down on the matter while the investigation is ongoing.
• 
First, did the Trump campaign collaborate with the Russians to affect the election?
• 
Second, are some members of the intelligence community leaking to undermine the President?
• 
We need answers to both.  The first to satisfy the left and the second to satisfy the right.
• 
The left is going to have to get over their phony "stolen seat" talking point.
• 
The right is going to have to concede the left has legitimate concerns about the Russian mess.
• 
The constant inflaming of grievances by political organizations is going to do us all in.
• 
I have to wonder, though, why every story still has to note that THERE IS NO EVIDENCE AT ALL of Trump-Russian collaboration.
• 
Given the open hostility for the president that the intelligence community has, one would think they would have produced some actual proof of something other than innuendo by now, if there was something to produce.
• 
But they have not.
      Media escalate Trump-Russia reporting as he rips 'fake news' conspiracies  (Fox 02/16/2017)
• 
"The idea that Donald Trump is now inexorably on a path to impeachment has taken almost gleeful hold in the wake of the Michael Flynn resignation among liberal elites and anti-Trumpers generally — and everybody better stop and take a deep breath and consider what might arise from this.  This isn't fire we're playing with, it's a nuclear war."
      Stephen Miller: Coverage of Trump travel ban 'dishonest,' 'false,' and 'wrong'  (Fox 02/09/2017)
• 
"We've seen example after example ... of individuals becoming radicalized and joining terrorist groups."
• 
"The reality ... is that it is a daily feature of life for law enforcement officials and federal investigators all across this country to be investigating, interdicting and preventing terrorist acts that are only being conceived of ... because we let these individuals into our country in the first place."
• 
"An unelected judge does not have the right to remake the immigration laws and policies for the entire United States of America."
• 
"This was an issue put before 300 million American citizens and they voted ... to put in place new, tough vetting measures so that we don't end up [spending] hundreds of billions of dollars long-term dealing with the effects of an immigration system that is not properly controlled."
      Trump calls judge’s halt on immigration 'ridiculous;' says will be 'overturned!'  (Fox 02/04/2017)

"When a country is no longer able to say who can, and who cannot, come in & out, especially for reasons of safety & security — big trouble!"
      Who knew there were so many homophobic, racist xenophobes at Berkeley  (Fox 02/02/2017)
• 
So here's what needs to happen: President Trump should immediately issue an executive order blocking Berkeley students from receiving any federal funding.
• 
And the same goes for any other public universities that want to silence conservative voices.
• 
Universities must guarantee free speech for all students – conservative and liberal.
• 
It's time for the federal government to eradicate this un-American infestation in higher education.

      An open letter to Senator Chuck Schumer  (Fox 02/01/2017)
• 
As you well know, Senator Schumer, the president's first constitutional duty is to protect the nation from all enemies, foreign and domestic.
• 
It is not his duty to bow to the neurotic, loony whims of women on "The View," naive, airhead actors at an awards ceremony or the anarchists your party has unleashed once again in big cities across the country.
• 
The examples of terrorists who have infiltrated into the US under the guise of the refugee or visa programs are numerous.
• 
You don't know who these people are, or where they're going, or what their motivations are, do you Senator Schumer?
• 
How is the government supposed to scrutinize the backgrounds of refugees, when laws prohibit officials from examining the social media pages of those who wish to settle in the USA?
• 
You do know one thing though, Senator Schumer; they will eventually vote Democrat and that's all that counts, national security be damned.
• 
Mean spirited and a moral outrage Senator?
• 
Mean spirited is a Jihadi firing a couple hundred rounds into innocent men and women in a crowded Paris theater.
• 
Moral outrage is an Al Qaeda operative roaming freely around the US, with a shiny new green card and a carload of C4.
• 
Mean-spirited is a Jihadi driving over people with a semi-truck in downtown Nice.
• 
Moral outrage is a Somali refugee stabbing a dozen people at Ohio State University.
• 
Mean spirited are the constant threats by Iran against the United States.
• 
Moral outrage is a series of ISIS suicide bombs detonating in the Brussels airport, killing 32 innocent civilians.
• 
NO ONE has a constitutional right to be here who is not an American citizen.
• 
Those who come here do so at the discretion of the president and the Congress, which represents we the people.
• 
The president of the United States is the leader of this nation.
• 
Like all leaders, he must make decisions that are sometimes unpopular among certain groups, for the greater good of America.
• 
Strength is a trait that has all but vanished among liberals and national security is anathema to the left's obscene world view.
• 
It is more than obvious that Democrats are willing to gamble with the lives of the American people in order to be politically correct.
      NYC Mayor de Blasio blasted over drunk-driving comment  (Fox 01/31/2017)

      Trump signs executive order for 'extreme vetting' of refugees  (Fox 01/27/2017)
• 
... Trump said persecuted Christians from Syria would get priority.
• 
"They've been horribly treated.  Do you know if you were a Christian in Syria it was impossible, at least very tough to get into the United States?  If you were a Muslim you could come in, but if you were a Christian, it was almost impossible and the reason that was so unfair, everybody was persecuted in all fairness, but they were chopping off the heads of everybody but more so the Christians.  And I thought it was very, very unfair.  So we are going to help them."
      Trump draft order reportedly will halt refugee processing for Syrians  (Fox 01/25/2017)
• 
The order said while the program is suspended, the U.S.  may admit people on a case-by-case basis "when in the national interest" and the government would continue to process refugee requests from people claiming religious persecution, "provided that the religion ... is a minority religion in the individual's country."
• 
That suggests that would allow the admission of Christians from Muslim-majority countries.
      Democrats introduce bill to take nuclear football out of Trump's hands  (Fox 01/25/2017)

• 
Students at Independence High School in Williamson County, Tennessee, will not be allowed to watch President-elect Donald Trump's inauguration during class on Friday.
• 
"...  this is a nationwide event in history that I think an a US citizen (whether you are happy about it or not) should be watched to honor and support the president of The United States of America (no matter who it is) And pay respect to the country we are privileged to live in."
      Obama commutes Chelsea Manning's sentence for leaking Army documents  (Fox 01/17/2017)
• 
House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wisc., called Obama's decision "outrageous."
• 
"Chelsea Manning's treachery put American lives at risk and exposed some of our nation's most sensitive secrets."
• 
"President Obama now leaves in place a dangerous precedent that those who compromise our national security won't be held accountable for their crimes."
• 
... Obama is "undermining our ability on criminal justice reform by granting clemency at an alarming rate."
      Rep.  Duncan Hunter: Colleague's 'art' disrespected cops  (Fox 01/09/2017)
• 
Applied to police officers and law enforcement of all kinds, the image is neither complimentary nor salutary.  It's offensive.
• 
I thought of all the men and women who honorably and faithfully wear a badge, who protect our communities and streets.
• 
I thought too of our collective obligation of a society to uphold these defenders of law and justice, even though too it is right that decision makers hear and respond properly to instances when law enforcement does overstep. 
• 
So as an American citizen and a former Marine who supports law enforcement, I took matters into my own hands.  I unscrewed the painting from the wall and returned it to the Democratic Congressman who represents the award winner. 
• 
But a painting of that kind — projecting the message it does — does not belong in the U.S.  Capitol.
• 
There is a thin blue line on which police officers stand in protection of us all.  They deserve our respect and appreciation.
• 
There's nothing inclusive or healing when police officers are referred to as swine.
      Stars sick of their fellow entertainers' political rants  (Fox 01/10/2017)
• 
Country star Travis Tritt took to Twitter to offer his "advice to all actors."
• 
"Advice to all actors, musicians and entertainers: Please stick to your crafts that we all love you for and drop the political rhetoric."
• 
"If you have fans who respect your talent enough to spend hard earned money to see your talent, be thankful and gracious and leave it at that."
• 
Piers Morgan echoed Tritt's words, adding he hasn't "heard such elitist snobbery since Hillary Clinton branded Trump supporters 'a basket of deplorables.'"
• 
Streep began her speech by saying "the most vilified segments of American society right now" are Hollywood, foreigners and the press.
• 
Morgan called her hypocritical, saying at that moment, "the cameras panned out to hundreds of the richest, most privileged people in American society sitting in the audience in their $10,000 tuxedos and $20,000 dresses, loudly cheering this acknowledgement of their dreadful victimhood."
• 
He wrote ... "You'd be hard-pushed to find an industry that encourages more disrespect and violence than Hollywood."
      Mike Rowe: Revival of auto manufacturing 'goes right to the national identity'  (Fox 01/10/2017)
• 
"Look, it's not just jobs.  And when I say that, I don't mean to minimize it at all, but there's just something ... larger at work here, and it has to do with our identity, it has to do with what it feels like when we're actually making things as a country."
• 
"At some point we have to ask ourselves ... who are we?  What do we do other than buy things that other countries make on our behalf?"
• 
"Eventually, when the bottom falls out, it's like [the 2006 movie] ‘Idiocracy,' [where] we don't know how to hang a picture any more, much less make a car."
      Montel Williams slams Chicago Facebook Live attack suspects on social media  (Fox 01/07/2017)

"Life in prison.  No parole.  I'm not interested in whether these kids had a tough life, whether their parents loved them enough, I don't care."
• 
"This is the cold blooded torture of an innocent human being.  That's bigger than a hate crime, it's bigger than racism."
• 
"If you can do this to another human being once, you can't be trusted to not do it again."
      Business owner to CNN, liberals and Springsteen: 'We've had it with you idiots'  (Fox 01/07/2017)
• 
"Oregon is a very beautiful state, but it's infested with liberals."
• 
"To all the ignorant liberals including Bruce Springsteen... The 4 people who kidnapped & tortured a disabled teenager just because he supports Donald Trump – Just shows everyone you are a party of complete morons.  I'm embarrassed to call you Americans.  Go straight to Hell where you belong.  We've had it with you idiots."
• 
For the record, there's no clear evidence the young man who was tortured was actually a Trump supporter.  However, it's clear the victim's attackers were displeased with not only Trump but white people, too.
• 
Oh, he also had a message for CNN, calling them "Comedy News Network, Fake News all the Time, Propaganda for Liberals."

      Greg Gutfeld: Obama slams Fox News [nd rings the division bell, for the last time]  (Fox 12/01/2016)
• 
... because Obama is a progressive, and because he's surrounded by progressives, he projects their sense of political urgency and identity onto his political adversaries.  He assumes we're all just like him, only in reverse.
• 
The bottom line: The division began decades ago, when the left made politics a measure of your morality.
• 
If you weren't like them, you were immoral.  You were not simply wrong, as the saying goes, you were evil...
• 
So you're left with a President Obama — a smart, gifted man — ending his tenure bitterly chatting to a pathetic, marginal magazine about a network he believes gave the country President-elect Trump.
• 
He's lost the plot.  All Trump did was galvanize and organize a group of people tired of being villain-shamed by the arrogant and the elite.
• 
The fact that this group happened to watch Fox News is simply a correlation, not a cause.
      'Stop interfering with other countries': OSU attacker slammed US over treatment of Muslims on Facebook  (Fox 11/29/2016)

      Businesses brace for Trump decision on H-1B visas in wake of Sessions pick  (Fox 11/25/2016)
• 
"Because of lobbying by the Chamber of Commerce and big tech companies, they've succeeded in loosening standards and we've seen the increasingly common scenario where American workers are fired, and have to train their replacements."
• 
"I will end forever the use of the H-1B as a cheap labor program, and institute an absolute requirement to hire American workers first for every visa and immigration program.  No exceptions."
• 
In 2015, Sessions sent round an "immigration handbook" to Republican members of Congress that calls immigration reform "a legislative honorific almost exclusively reserved for proposals which benefit everyone but actual American citizens."
• 
In that handbook and since, Sessions has railed against what he sees as the abuse of the program.  ... he cites statistics suggesting that guest workers make up two-thirds of all new IT hires, while half of Americans with STEM [Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematic]) degrees can't find work.  He says that while the cap is 85,000, the real number is much higher.
• 
"But, due to overlapping admissions and other factors, the total number of H-1B workers physically present in the U.S.  is actually much higher — it has been estimated to fall somewhere in the range of 650,000 to 750,000."
• 
Those opposed to the current state of the program say there are a number of things a Trump administration could do without needing whole-scale reform from Congress.
• 
"One of those is to collect the data and make it available to the public.  That would strike horror into the industry."
• 
"This has been kept secret or not collected.  We don't know who are getting the visas, we don't know where the people are, what occupations they're in or what the salary is."
• 
Other possible reforms include a clarification on the definition of "specialized knowledge," which could help cut down on abuse, and a limit on such visas for two years.
      College Removes American Flag, Calls it “Symbol of Fear”  (11/22/2016)
• 
"As both a veteran and a taxpayer, I am appalled at the decision of this college to ban the flying of the US flag, the symbol of your school's educational freedom.  I sincerely hope that the parents of your precious students, the ones actually paying the tuition, withdraw their support, both financial and moral."

If Donald Trump, with no political experience, rises to the height of the office and can compromise with competing factions, he will be a successful president.

If Trump does not, his administration will fail to live up to his promises.

It is a measure of Mike Pence's basic decency that after being booed by a few self-righteous New Yorkers in the audience, who probably don't know anyone who voted for Trump except maybe their doorman, that Mr.  Pence stayed, patiently listened to Mr.  Dixon's supercilious lecture, and then gently took his leave.

Did it ever occur to you that this may be why people voted for Trump?
• 
That it might not have been the "racist proclivities" of the U.S.  or the "dangerous nationalism" of the people, but that it was people who tell them not to think or speak the way they do.
• 
Trump won, and he did not overthrow the government or kill people to silence them.  He won in the standard fashion — by getting 270 votes in the Electoral College.
• 
As I said, you have a right to be upset, but what we have on our hands now is an embarrassment.

• 
"This is not about religion.  It's about one event on one day that killed more than 3,000 people."

      NFL's Kaepernick insults Americans, law enforcement officers everywhere  (Fox 08/29/2016)
• 
Kaepernick's comments weren't just an insult to the over one million Americans — many thousands of whom were African-American — who have given their lives in defense of the United States from wars as far back as the American Revolution to the more recent conflicts in the Middle East.
• 
Kaepernick also turned his back on the thousands of police officers — again, a tremendous number of whom were African-American - who have died defending their communities and upholding the rule of law at home. 
• 
No one should question whether or not Kaepernick had a right to sit, stand, or protest the National Anthem, no matter his motivation.
• 
We are blessed to live in a country where an act perceived by most as an ugly display of disrespect is protected by the very system of government prompting the protest.
• 
Many celebrities — and yes, even a backup quarterback on one of the worst teams in the NFL qualifies as a celebrity nowadays — use their status within pop culture to advance their beliefs and opinions, often without acknowledging differing perspectives. 
• 
This is nothing new.

But if Colin Kaepernick were truly interested in being a part of the solution — a meaningful interlocutor offering not just hyperbole but considered rhetoric — he may have thought to open this dialogue with a sense of mutual understanding and respect and not by boldly thumbing his nose at both the American flag as well as the men and women of all races who have given their lives defending an American ideal — imperfect in practice, yet exceptional nonetheless — and one far greater than themselves.

"In the context of this clear threat, your goal of admitting 10,000 Syrians as a part of a so-called ‘surge operation' is extremely troubling...  Terrorists are leaving Syria disguised as refugees and carrying out attacks in the West.  The prudent course of action is to halt all admissions of Syrians into the U.S.  until the safety of Americans can be guaranteed."

Granted, Target has every right to determine its corporate policies.

For the sake of inclusivity, would Target allow a 16-year-old who identifies as a 21-year-old to purchase a six-pack of beer?

Target's policy is exactly how sexual predators get access to their victims

Clearly, Target's dangerous new policy poses a danger to wives and daughters.

And we think the average Target customer is willing to pledge to boycott Target stores until it makes protecting women and children a priority.
• 
One solution is a common-sense approach and a reasonable solution to the issue of transgendered customers: a unisex bathroom.
• 
Target should keep separate facilities for men and women, but for the trans community and for those who simply like using the bathroom alone, a single occupancy unisex option should be provided.

Falwell was met with rousing applause from students, but some said he went too far when he appeared to be referring specifically to Muslims.
• 
"What if just one of those students or one of those faculty members had a concealed permit and was carrying a weapon when the shooter walked into Virginia Tech?  Countless lives could have been saved."
• 
Falwell said the university is only encouraging responsible gun ownership, not just gun owners.  He also said he's decided to carry a gun after recent attacks.
      President tells students: This is not a day care.  This is a university!  (Fox 11/30/2015)
• 
This past week, I actually had a student come forward after a university chapel service and complain because he felt "victimized" by a sermon on the topic of 1 Corinthians 13.
• 
It appears that this young scholar felt offended because a homily on love made him feel bad for not showing love!
• 
In his mind, the speaker was wrong for making him, and his peers, feel uncomfortable.
• 
Our culture has actually taught our kids to be this self-absorbed and narcissistic!
• 
I have a message for this young man and all others who care to listen.  That feeling of discomfort you have after listening to a sermon is called a conscience! 
• 
The goal of many a good sermon is to get you to confess your sins — not coddle you in your selfishness.  The primary objective of the Church and the Christian faith is your confession, not your self-actualization!
• 
If you want to complain about a sermon that makes you feel less than loving for not showing love, this might be the wrong place.
• 
If you're more interested in playing the "hater" card than you are in confessing your own hate; if you want to arrogantly lecture, rather than humbly learn; if you don't want to feel guilt in your soul when you are guilty of sin; if you want to be enabled rather than confronted, there are many universities across the land (in Missouri and elsewhere) that will give you exactly what you want but Oklahoma Wesleyan isn't one of them.
• 
Oklahoma Wesleyan is not a "safe place" but rather, a place to learn: to learn that life isn't about you, but about others; that the bad feeling you have while listening to a sermon is called guilt; that the way to address it is to repent of everything that's wrong with you rather than blame others for everything that's wrong with them.  This is a place where you will quickly learn that you need to grow up!
• 
This is not a day care.  This is a university! 
      University president rebukes 'self-absorbed, narcissistic' students  (Fox 11/30/2015)
• 
A chapel sermon on love left a student at Oklahoma Wesleyan University (OKWU), feeling "offended" and "victimized."
• 
"This is not a day care.  This is a university."
• 
"Our culture has actually taught our kids to be this self-absorbed and narcissistic."
• 
"Any time their feelings are hurt, they are victims!  Anyone who dares challenge them and, thus, makes them ‘feel bad' about themselves, is a ‘hater,' a ‘bigot,' an ‘oppressor,' and a ‘victimizer.'"
• 
It's refreshing to see a grown man with advanced degrees willing to stand up to a generation of perpetually-offended nincompoops and bullies.
• 
The student felt offended because the "homily on love made him feel bad for not showing love."
• 
"In his mind, the speaker was wrong for making him, and his peers, feel uncomfortable."
• 
Dr.  Piper offered some wise advice for the young man.
• 
"If you want the chaplain to tell you you're a victim rather than tell you that you need virtue, this may not be the university you're looking for."
• 
"If you want to complain about a sermon that makes you feel less than loving for not showing love, this might be the wrong place."
• 
For weeks we've watched academically-castrated university presidents capitulate to the outrageous demands of students.
• 
"The bottom line is that at the end of the day I would argue that college is not about safe spaces or being a safe place."
• 
He said the nation's universities should be ashamed for educating a culture of "selfish individuals."
• 
"The university needs to recognize that our obligation is to challenge bad thinking and bad ideas and not coddle individuals in their self-absorption and narcissism."
• 
The modern-day collegian is a fragile snowflake – who needs psychological help for such atrocities as reading the works of a white author or attending Taco Night at the campus dining hall.
• 
"Do we want ideological fascism or do we want intellectual freedom and academic freedom."
• 
"Because really what we have right now is an argument for ideological fascism.  You must submit.  You must agree.  You must be one of us.  And if you don't, we will silence you.  We will crush you."
• 
The nation needs more academic leaders like Dr.  Piper – a grownup willing to say what needs to be said to coddled collegians.
• 
It's time to put on your big-boy pants, kids.
      Obama plan for Syrian refugees scrambled by state opposition  (Fox 11/16/2015)
• 
Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson released a letter to House Speaker Paul Ryan on Monday seeking the termination of "all public funding" for federal programs to resettle refugees from Syria.
• 
"There's currently no ability to vet these people and by doing so, we are putting America at risk," Carson said.
• 
Former Arkansas Gov.  Mike Huckabee also called on Ryan to "reject the importation of those fleeing the Middle East without assurances that we can separate refugees from terrorists."
• 
Former Florida Gov.  Jeb Bush told Fox News that the U.S.  should profile refugees.
• 
"Yeah, absolutely, that's what screening is.  We should be profiling, of course we should.  This is Islamic terrorism," Bush said.
      Alabama, Michigan governors refuse to relocate Syrian refugees after Paris attacks  (Fox 11/16/2015)
• 
... he reached his decision "[a]fter full consideration of this weekend's attacks of terror on innocent citizens in Paris ... I will not stand complicit to a policy that places the citizens of Alabama in harm's way."
• 
"It is irresponsible and severely disconcerting to place individuals, who may have ties to ISIS, in a state without the state's knowledge or involvement...  As governor of Louisiana, I demand information."
• 
GOP presidential candidate Ben Carson told "Fox News Sunday" that the United States is making a "huge mistake" in accepting the refugees and instead called for helping them to resettle in safer parts of their own region.
• 
"But to bring them here under these circumstances is a suspension of intellect," said Carson, a retired pediatric neurosurgeon.
• 
Fellow GOP challenger Sen.  Marco Rubio suggested that even the concept of finding a foreign fighter amid Syrian refugees is impossible.
• 
"The problem is not the background checks.  There is no background check system in the world that allows us to find that out because who do you call in Syria to background check them?"
      Chaos on campus: Students protest, call for heads to roll at schools around country  (Fox 11/12/2015)
• 
"Well we're being a little bit too tolerant, I guess you might say, accepting infantile behavior.  I don't care which side it comes from.  To say that I have the right to violate your civil rights because you're offending me is un-American.  It is unconstitutional.  And the officials at these places must recognize that and have the moral courage to stand up it.  Because if they don't, it will grow, it will exacerbate the situation and we will move much further toward anarchy than anybody can imagine, and much more quickly."
      What every parent knows [and Target doesn't] about boys and girls  (Fox 08/14/2015)
• 
G.K.  Chesterton, a prolific writer of the early 20th century, once said, "Don't be so open-minded that your brains fall out."
• 
Yet the difference between boys and girls is so painfully evident to any parent one wonders whether the management at Target have children themselves.
• 
Will there be children who differ from the norm?  Of course.  Some girls are into sports, and some boys like to read.
• 
Parent whose children fall outside the norm are perfectly capable of buying their children whatever it is they're interested in.  They don't need Target to hold their hand and lead the way.
• 
Target's new policy has nothing to do with making children feel better about themselves.  It looks like it's about the company making sure it doesn't get sued by parents who see injustice everywhere.
• 
Boys and girls are born with preferences based on their unique biology.  To ignore this fact, or to help spread the notion that biology isn't real, is unethical at best and dangerous at worst.
• 
For years, academic feminists have thumbed their nose at science and insisted — based on ideology, not fact — that biology is irrelevant.  The result is gender warfare.
      Why Rachel Dolezal's assertion that she is black could pave way for folks choosing a 'racial identity'  (Fox 06/15/2015)
• 
"That question is not as easy as it seems.  There's a lot of complexities ... and I don't know that everyone would understand that."
• 
If a man with male anatomy and a "Y" chromosome can assert he is female and be put on the covers of celebrity magazines and given awards for bravery, why can't a white woman assert that her internal identity is that of a black woman?
• 
Why does factual history have to dictate current reality if a human being feels very deeply that that factual history is not in tune with his or her inner sense of self?
• 
I mean the question sincerely, because we are rushing into this philosophical and psychological landscape with almost no consideration of its implications.
• 
If our measure of what a person is must be no more and no less than what she feels she is, then Rachel Dolezal can be black, if she wants to be, and if she can show evidence that she has sincerely adopted that vision of herself. 
• 
Here's one to ponder: If a man feels, to the core of his being, that he is 65 when he is chronologically 35, and if he can show evidence that he has voiced this self-concept, repeatedly, and has objected vigorously to being treated as though he is 35, who are we to lace him to his actual date of birth?  Why not let him choose another that feels "right"?  And if he applies for Medicare, why should he be denied?  Isn't that discriminating against him based on his age identity?
• 
I have warned and warned and warned that breaking free of certain apparent realities that define us as human beings – genetically and historically – can have profound implications for how closely people remain tied to reality, in general.
• 
Let us see how far down this path of "self"-assertion we travel, and with what results.

Then, amid a deluge of angry emails from former students, the school sought to amend the comment.
• 
"The University does not condone racism or bigotry in any form and we are deeply saddened when anyone makes such offensive statements."
• 
"In light of the university's willingness to invite vile rhetoric onto a campus that I spent four wonderful years at, I commit to never donate to Boston University."
• 
"As a Boston University alumnus and a father of a son who will graduate from BU next week, I am deeply saddened by this revelation.  It has become apparent that BU no longer supports a value system in line with human decency."
• 
"I'm not surprised that Boston University is hiring a racist to teach African-American Studies.  Anti-white racism is rampant in Black Studies programs."
• 
"If she were a white racist rather than an anti-white racist, she would never be hired.  Professors are supposed to be experts in some scholarly field, and professionals in their classroom discourse.  They don't have a license to indoctrinate students in their prejudices — whether those prejudices are right or left."

"You think it's an easy question?  You think it's clear that you cannot use extreme measures to get that information out of that person?"
"...  each society's perception of what it believes human rights should be ought to be up to that society, and I think it's very foolish to yield that determinations not only to a foreign body but to a foreign body of judges.  I don't know why anyone would want to do that."

Germany's interior minister says he plans to push a new law that would force more than a million refugees to learn the German language and integrate into society – or lose their residency.

      'Innocents take precedent over terrorists'  (INN 02/18/2016)
• 
"Currently we can treat everyone.  ... But when we reach the 'day of judgement' in which we won't be able to treat everyone, I think — and I say this with full caution — that if it is impossible to treat everyone, I think there is no avoiding the moral statement that we need to give the innocents different rights than the person who harmed them intentionally."
• 
The IMA's ethics committee raised a fury last December, when it called to treat the most wounded person first at the scene of an attack - even if that person is the terrorist.
• 
ZAKA head Yehuda Meshi Zahav also took part in the medical ethics conference this week, and condemned those opining that terrorists should be treated first if they are more seriously wounded.
• 
"If we treat the murderer and the victim continues bleeding — effectively we're doing what the murderer wanted.  Maybe you are taking part in murder because you didn't treat the victim."
      Bennett: Israel isn't Vegas  (INN 02/17/2016)

      A courageous idea to stop the murders  (INN 02/10/2016)
• 
It takes a village to raise a child.
• 
Children are being raised in many Arab villages to hate from birth with the ultimate aim and honour of being a shahid — a martyr — if they kill Jews.  Their schoolbooks and their media bring them up to believe this.
• 
Their teachers, their parents and their whole villages dance and celebrate when Jews are murdered by their own teenagers.  It is no accident that their young people are murdering Jews.
• 
One solution to these murderous acts by young people and the support of their society is to raze the village of the murderers to the ground and to expel all of their residents to their brothers in Jordan, Gaza (or dare I say Syria?).
• 
A Jewish community should immediately be built in its place.
• 
If Israel does this a few times it will be in the interests of every single Palestinian who wants to live in Israel to discourage these murders.

"At the end, in the State of Israel, as I see it, there will be a fence that spans it all.  I'll be told, 'this is what you want, to protect the villa?' The answer is yes.  Will we surround all of the State of Israel with fences and barriers?  The answer is yes."

"In the area that we live in, we must defend ourselves against the wild beasts."

• 
"I want collective harm in every town that a terrorist emerges from, and in the next stage to harm his family."
• 
"So that the next time that someone dares to do an attack, they'll know that the lives of their family are also in danger of being distanced to Jordan, Gaza or Syria.  In a democratic state there is no place for these people."
      Adamant ZAKA refuses to treat terrorists before Jews  (INN 12/17/2015)
• 
"The Jews brought morality to the world and no one will teach us what morality is."

•

•
