More Academic Nonsense

Prestigious Swarthmore College Offers Class Asking ‘Is God a White Supremacist?’ (Academic Stupidity 101. Only question I have is why is a Muslim teaching a class on alleged Christianity. Oh...that's right. There's no Christians at Swarthmore).

Not Surprised at Obama Administration

The U.S. Border Patrol alters statistics involving the apprehension of criminal illegal immigrants to conceal that thousands are being released, a new federal audit reveals. The frontline Homeland Security agency charged with preventing terrorists and weapons—including those of mass destruction—from entering the country also skews figures to drastically deflate the high recidivism rate of aliens caught entering the U.S.

Figures

CNN has tapped the daughter of President Obama’s closest adviser to cover the Department of Justice, The Post has learned. Laura Jarrett quietly joined the network in September as a reporter in the network’s Washington bureau.

She came to CNN with no experience in journalism.

(Don't think that no journalism experience will hurt her. CNN hasn't practiced journalism for years)

Perhaps Trump Will Change This

The skyrocketing cost of college has placed a particular burden on older Americans, many of whom are struggling to pay back growing debts in their retirement years, according to the report. Nearly 40 percent of federal student loan borrowers over age 65 are in default, the highest rate for any age group, the data show.  (So college debt is hurting the young, middle-age and the elderly. The only ones who are getting rich of this state of affairs are college professors and college administratiors.)

Yes, He's President

Jonathan Turley: It is of course immaterial that Trump lost the popular vote in a system based on electoral, not popular voting. (For the record, I have long been a critic of the Electoral College.) Moreover, while references to the “Russian hacking of the election” have become common shorthand, the Russians did not hack the election. Emails were hacked and those emails were not faked or tampered with, as repeatedly claimed by DNC chair Donna Brazile. As recently confirmed by the intelligence report, they were real emails showing incredibly dishonest and corrupt practices. Although there is no question that the leak appears selective in targeting Democrats, Washington seems most aggrieved by the fact that the public was given a true insight into the false and duplicitous behavior that defines the establishment. However, according to a new CNN/ORC poll, the spin is not taking: almost 60% of voters do not believe the hacking determined the outcome of the election.

If you like mystery novels, check out "Revenge" at Amazon.

Country Club Pro Palmer Daniels – friend of Detective Jarrold Banyon - is optimistic about his chances on next year’s Web.com tour when he is questioned by police about the murder of a young waitress. Daniels isn’t worried. On the night of the murder he was talking with two friends about a possible business investment. But when police question his two friends, they deny being with Daniels. Incriminating evidence turns up in Daniels’ house and in the apartment of the victim, making him the prime suspect.
Banyon is convinced his friend is innocent. But he must discover why two businessmen in Orange Key would lie about Daniels. Banyon believes someone is framing his friend. The investigation will take him to an incident in Daniels’ past. The club pro has no dark secrets in his life but a noble act a decade before may have resulted in murderous revenge and retribution.
The police are dismissive of his theory but Banyon is determined to bring the guilty party to justice. But the farther he goes into the past, the more dangerous the present becomes.
