Oberlin College of Ohio, established in 1835, has been associated with magnificent achievements in the pursuit of racial justice and equality. A few years after its founding it became the first college to admit African-Americans and the first to become a co-ed higher educational institution. The town of Oberlin became a stop on what is known as “The Underground Railroad”, helping thousands of run-away slaves from the South find freedom, with some graduates of the college traveling through the South aiding slaves to escape. In 1858 town residents, as well as Oberlin’s students and faculty, joined in a heroic and forceful rescue of a runaway slave.

It’s been done hundreds of times, but the urging by one member of the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn “demonstrably erroneous” precedents has enraged the left.

Justice Clarence Thomas wrote this week in a concurring opinion in the Gamble v. United States decision that the court’s understanding of stare decisis – the principle that previous decisions guide future rulings –needs a new look.

CNN, the cable news network hardly known for putting any Republican president in the limelight, is now suggesting that its competitor Fox News is controlled by the Trump White House, referring to it as “a beast with many heads.”

The accusation came Tuesday from CNN’s Jim Acosta, the reporter made famous for his high-profile clashes with President Trump, whom the commander in chief has personally labeled “fake news.”

New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez found herself steeped in controversy again today after comparing the situation at America’s southern border to “concentration camps.” It was another of her super-casual Instagram monologues, in which she sat barefoot on a couch that may or may not be one of the pieces of Ikea furniture she built during another recent video in which she told conservatives their children would be ashamed of them.

The analogy to concentration camps is an absolute absurdity that diminishes the Holocaust and demonizes those who disagree with her “let anybody into the country, no questions asked,” immigration stance. But that didn’t stop a few woke men on the left from leaping to their lady’s defense. MSNBC’s Chris Hayes had this to say:

The official Twitter account for Auschwitz Museum advised MSNBC commentator Chris Hayes to follow it on the platform after Hayes tried to argue that concentration camps were historically different from death camps.

“[Chris Hayes,] Please consider following @AuschwitzMuseum where everyday we commemorate and educate about the tragic human history of [Auschwitz],” Auschwitz Museum tweeted on Tuesday.

Rep. Ilhan Omar, (D-Minn), went on a rant against President Trump and his administration for calling illegal immigrants “aliens” and “dehumanizing” them.

“No one is an ‘alien,'” she tweeted. “Dehumanizing immigrants and tearing apart families will not make us any stronger. It will only destroy lives, traumatize children, and make our country less safe,” Omar also said.

The DOJ’s Office of Legal Counsel issued a 33-page memo on Friday supporting a decision by Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin to defy a request from House Democrats for President Trump’s tax returns.

Freshman U.S. Rep. Katie Porter added her name on Monday to an impeachment investigation of President Donald Trump. The Democrat from Irvine joined nearly 60 other House members seeking to impeach Trump, despite special counsel Robert Mueller’s report in which he found no obstruction of justice in the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

“I cannot with a clean conscience ignore my duty to defend the Constitution. I can’t claim to be committed to rooting out corruption and putting people over politics and then not apply those same principles and standards in all of the work I do,” Porter said, AP reported.

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) is just going scorched earth on…everything. Is there not a single thing she can do or say that doesn’t land her in hot water? She obviously doesn’t care; this is good for her. For the Democratic Party, however, not so much, as her past anti-Semitic antics engulfed the party leadership into a debate about what to do with her. Omar slammed supporters of Israel for maybe having dual loyalties, her “all about the Benjamins’” tweet concerning AIPAC and its activity touched on the ‘Jewish people + money = influence,’ and she said that Israel had hypnotic powers that have prevented people from seeing the nation’s evil.

Leading Russian political Telegram channel Nezygar reports that Russian-based Oligarch Viktor Vekselberg used US media companies to try and sabotage the Trump campaign beginning in 2016. Vekselberg is one of the wealthiest men in Russia, worth over $10 billion, and has donated to the Clinton Foundation since Hillary’s tenure as Secretary of State.

Nezygar reports that Vekselberg bought a share in Odyssey Media, a fast-growing U.S. blog platform, in April 2016. At that time, Odyssey had over 30 million visitors a month, especially among students and millennials, many opposed to candidate Trump. “Odyssey is a bit like a college paper on steroids. The startup has a stable of over 10,000 writers, aged 18-28, who produce around one piece a week. Odyssey then relies on the social networks of the individual writers to push out the content to the masses,” Business Insider wrote in 2016.

With the stages now set for the first Democratic presidential debate next week, leading candidates like former Vice President Joseph R. Biden and Sen. Elizabeth Warren will look to back up their statuses as the best-polling candidates on their respective stages, while lesser-known candidates face their own pressure of scoring a breakout moment to propel their campaigns forward.

The first Democratic National Committee debates for 2020 presidential candidates will be held June 26 and 27 in Miami, with 10 candidates squaring off on each night. Mr. Biden, Sen. Bernard Sanders of Vermont, South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg and Sen. Kamala D. Harris of California are slated to share the stage on the second night, which is already being billed as the main event.

The state of California has made no secret that it wants to let as many people out of prison as possible.

From the early release of inmates through AB 109, to filling parole boards with felon friendly commissioners, to decriminalizing a litany of felonies and drug offenses with Props 47 and 57, Sacramento lawmakers are bending over backwards to dramatically reduce the state’s inmate population.

CHARLESTON, S.C. — Beto O'Rourke faced pressure to explain his plan for reparations if he is elected is president, a day after voicing support for making amends to black Americans for centuries of slavery.

Yet as the Democrat attempts to court black voters in South Carolina, he was dodgy on details, choosing instead to kick the question to a future date when he said white Americans better understand the history of enslavement in the U.S.

Dads are sometimes labeled lazy, but they don't deserve to be, a new research brief from the Institute for Family Studies argues.

In the past several years, both entertainment media and the think-piece-industrial complex have tended to paint a not-so-friendly pictures of dads. Moms are said to be suffering under "second-shift motherhood," while the "working dad" commands less and less respect, thanks to the perception that he does not pull his weight.

U.S. Supreme Court justices on Monday sidestepped another opportunity to determine if LGBTQ rights trump the Constitution’s protection of the exercise of religion.

Nevertheless, they ruled in favor of the owners of an Oregon bakery, Sweetcakes by Melissa, who declined to make a cake for a same-sex wedding. The ruling vacated a state court decision against Aaron and Melissa Klein, eliminating a $135,000 fine. And it directed state appellate judges to reconsider the case in light of the Supreme Court’s ruling in favor of Colorado baker Jack Phillips.

President Donald Trump told ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos that he wouldn’t necessarily turn down dirt on his political opponent if it came from a foreign source. The Left went apoplectic. This rehashes the Russian collusion nonsense, but it’s on Trump’s terms. There shouldn’t be any doubt here. The liberal media has been driven insane by this presidency. They’re corrupt. They’re stupid. They can’t cover this White House accurately. And now that the Russia investigation headed by Special Counsel Robert Mueller is over, with the president being totally exonerated on Russian collusion, Trump is going to poke the bear and keep these legions of idiots at full froth. Keep them agitated and they’ll keep making mistakes. That’s how it’s been for nearly four years now.

Supreme Court ruled that “dual sovereignty doctrine” — which allows a person to face both state and federal charges for the same offense — does not violates the Fifth Amendment’s Double Jeopardy Clause.

“Although the dual-sovereignty rule is often dubbed an ‘exception’ to the double jeopardy right, it is not an exception at all,” Justice Samuel Alito wrote in the opinion. “On the contrary, it follows from the text that defines that right in the first place.”

During the Schwarzenegger years as Guv, he would raise UC tuition costs—with one third of the increase going to the unfunded UC system pension system—NOT to education.  We know that UC Chancellor played fast and loose with the numbers and hid tens of millions of dollars from the Board of Regents and the Legislature.  Now the State College system has been caught charging students a higher parking fee, to subsidize the cost of parking for the Administrators and professors—without telling the public or students.

DENVER - The first two states to legalize recreational marijuana are starting to grapple with teenagers' growing use of highly potent pot, even as both boost the industry and reap huge tax windfalls from its sales.

Though the legal purchase age is 21 in Colorado and Washington, parents, educators and physicians say youths are easily getting hold of edibles infused with tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, the psychoactive component that causes a high, and concentrates such as "shatter," a brittle, honey-colored substance that is heated and then inhaled through a special device.

President Donald Trump is sitting on a war chest topping $40 million, has boots on the ground spread across nine regions crucial to his 2020 map and owns a sprawling network of volunteers who’ve been rigorously trained for the months ahead.

When he takes the stage Tuesday in Orlando, Fla., to announce his bid for reelection, Trump will be joined by 20,000 guests whose personal information — names, zip codes, phone numbers — was meticulously recorded when they requested tickets to the rally. First-time attendees will receive relentless emails and texts in the coming weeks, reminding them they can help “Keep America Great” by contributing $5, $10 or $15. Some maxed-out donors who gave generously to his 2016 campaign will trek to Florida to witness what they delivered — and decide whether to give big again.

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump has lashed out at The New York Times, saying it engaged in a “virtual act of treason” for a story that said the U.S. was ramping up its cyber-intrusions into Russia’s power grid.

The Times reported on Saturday that the U.S. has bored into Russian utility systems in an escalating campaign meant to deter future cyber activity by Russia. It comes as the U.S. looks for new ways to punish Russia’s meddling in the 2016 presidential election and prevent a recurrence.
