Stanford University Offers Course That Explores ‘Abolishing Whiteness’

Back in the 1990s it was all the rage for universities to open up new programs for ‘gender studies’ and ‘women’s studies’ that explored ‘heterosexual and male hegemony’ in Western society.

We know of course that they were thinly-veiled hives for leftists who wanted federal subsidies to support their feminist and/or LBGT political agenda while they brain-washed unsuspecting young minds.

Those same ivory tower elites are now taking the next iteration of extremism to its logical level: ‘white identity politics’.

To wit, Stanford University is offering a course as a part of its ‘whiteness studies’ program that explores how to ‘abolish whiteness’.

If this sounds a bit like reverse racism, that’s because it is.

Replace ‘whiteness’ with ‘blackness’, ‘redness’ or ‘yellowness’ — as ridiculous as that sounds — and there’s no doubt on-campus riots would ensue.

It’s now nearly a crime for merely being born into a majority demographic.

Naturally, leftists don’t recognize hypocrisy or irony when it stares them in the face.

Here’s more from the College Fix…

Stanford University is slated to offer a class this fall called “White Identity Politics,” during which students will “survey the field of whiteness studies” and discuss the “possibilities of … abolishing whiteness,” according to the course description.

Citing pundits who say “the 2016 Presidential election marks the rise of white identity politics in the United States,” the upper-level anthropology seminar will draw “from the field of whiteness studies and from contemporary writings that push whiteness studies in new directions.”

Questions to be posed throughout the semester include: “Does white identity politics exist?” and “How is a concept like white identity to be understood in relation to white nationalism, white supremacy, white privilege, and whiteness?”

“Students will consider the perils and possibilities of different political practices,” according to the course description, “including abolishing whiteness or coming to terms with white identity.”

The course will be taught by instructor John Patrick Moran. Reached by e-mail, Moran declined to comment, instead directing The College Fix to Stanford communication’s office.

Ernest Miranda, a spokesman for Stanford, told The Fix via e-mail that “‘abolishing whiteness’ is a concept put forward in the 1990s by a number of white historians. Their belief was that if other white people would, like them, stop identifying politically as white, it would help end inequalities.”

Canada Pays Millions to Ex-Gitmo Terrorist Who Killed US Soldier

The Canadians have proven once again that socialism isn’t some far-flung European phenomenon…it’s right in our backyard.

This week we awoke to news that the Canadian government awarded Omar Khadr 8 million Canadian bucks in a settlement in which he was seeking 16 million.

What was his grievance?

He was reportedly tortured in Guantanamo Bay as a terrorist prisoner.

This after being captured for participating in a terrorist incursion that left one U.S. soldier dead and another blind.

Meanwhile, two little kids were left without a dad and this scumbag becomes fabulously rich.

How’s that for Canadian justice?

One hopes beyond hope the Trump administration finds an interesting way to counter-punch this punch in the gut from an American ‘ally’.

Here’s more from Fox News…

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau gave Omar Khadr a big payout, but the terrorist’s real victims may never see any of that money.

Canada agreed to pay the former Guantanamo prisoner a reported $8 million in a lawsuit alleging civil rights violations. The settlement included an apology.

The Canadian-born Khadr was 15 in 2002 when he tossed a grenade in a firefight that killed U.S. Army Sgt. 1st Class Christopher Speer, a special forces medic.

Tabitha Speer, the soldier’s widow, and Layne Morris, who was blinded in the 2002 firefight, won a $134 million wrongful-death default judgment against Khadr two years ago in Utah.

Lawyers for the widow and Morris requested an order freezing Khadr’s assets, but last week a Canadian judge threw out the request, calling it “extraordinary.”

Conservative Member of the Canadian Parliament and official opposition critic for foreign affairs Peter Kent wrote in The Wall Street Journal Monday that the timing of the payout undermines Tabitha Speer’s legal options.

He added that Trudeau’s actions “are an affront to the memory of Christopher Speer, to Tabitha Speer and her children, to Layne Morris, to our U.S. allies and to all men and women in uniform.”

Russia: US Jets Now Deemed ‘Targets’ After Syrian Jet Shot Down

Just as we predicted this morning, Russian officials responded to the weekend’s dogfight in the skies over Syria this weekend with a dire warning: American jets henceforth will be regarded by Russian aircraft as ‘targets’ over Syria.

Additionally, official communication between the U.S. and Russia has been suspended over the incident.

This now marks the worst relations between the two powers since the Cold War.

What’s more, it’s likely being seen by Trump administration defense officials as a dare in which the Syrian Air Force — backed by Russia — may test American resolve by continuing anti-rebel sorties in and around Syrian airspace.

Stay tuned for updates…

Here’s more from the Independent…

Russia has said it will treat US warplanes operating in parts of Syria where its air forces are present as “targets” amid a diplomatic row caused by the downing of a Syrian jet.

The country’s defence ministry said the change in position would apply to all aircraft, including those operating as part of the US-backed coalition.

It will also suspend a hotline between Russia and the US set up to prevent mid-air collisions.

The ministry said in a statement: “All kinds of airborne vehicles, including aircraft and UAVs of the international coalition detected to the west of the Euphrates River will be tracked by the Russian SAM systems as air targets.”

The warning followed after a US F-18 Super Hornet shot down a Syrian army SU-22 jet on Sunday in the countryside southwest of Raqqa.

Washington said the jet had dropped bombs near US-backed forces but Damascus said the plane was downed while flying a mission against Isis militants.

Russia’s Defence Ministry said the suspension of its communication channel with the Americans would begin immediately.

The US did not use its communication channel with Russia ahead of the downing of the Syrian government warplane, the ministry was quoted as saying, accusing the US of a “deliberate failure to make good on its commitments” under the de-confliction deal.

“The shooting down of a Syrian Air Force jet in Syria’s airspace is a cynical violation of Syria’s sovereignty,” the ministry said.

“The US’ repeated combat operations under the guise of ‘combating terrorism’ against the legitimate armed forces of a UN member-country are a flagrant violation of international law and an actual military aggression against the Syrian Arab Republic.”

Navy Jet Shoots Down Syrian Warplane That Attacked US-backed Rebels

The war in Syria escalated over the weekend after U.S. forces struck Syria’s military for a second time since President Trump’s inauguration.

According to reports, a Syrian jet attacked forces backed by the U.S.-led coalition.

That prompted the Pentagon to launch an F/A-18E Super Hornet from the Mediterranean Sea-based aircraft carrier George HW Bush which promptly shot the Syrian Su-22 out of the sky.

Officials reported that defense officers contacted Russian leaders via a de-confliction line ahead of the Navy’s counter-attack.

But the action threatens further meltdown of international relations between the U.S. and Russia, which has soured after the U.S. missile attack on Syria and the ongoing accusations of Russia election hacking.

Here’s more from Fox News…

A U.S. Navy fighter jet shot down a Syrian government warplane after it attacked Washington-backed fighters near ISIS’ de facto capital of Raqqa, the U.S.-led coalition said Sunday.

In a statement, the coalition headquarters in Iraq said that a F/A-18E Super Hornet shot down a Syrian Su-22 that had dropped bombs near positions held by the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).

The statement said coalition aircraft had “conducted a show of force” to turn back an attack by Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad’s forces on the SDF in the town of Ja’Din, south of Tabqah.

The coalition said the shootdown took place “in accordance with rules of engagement and in collective self-defense of Coalition partnered forces.”

The statement said “a number of SDF fighters” were wounded in the regime’s attack, but did not specify further. The coalition also said that Russian officers had been contacted on a special “de-confliction” hotline in an effort to halt the assault.

“The Coalition’s mission is to defeat ISIS in Iraq and Syria,” its statement said. “The Coalition does not seek to fight Syrian regime, Russian, or pro-regime forces partnered with them, but will not hesitate to defend Coalition or partner forces from any threat.”

The statement went on to call for all parties in Syria’s complex and bloody six-year-long civil war to “focus their efforts on the defeat of ISIS, which is our common enemy and the greatest threat to regional and worldwide peace and security.”

A U.S. defense official told Fox News that the Super Hornet that shot down the Syrian jet was based on board the USS George H.W. Bush, which is currently operating in the Mediterranean Sea. The official did not say which weapon was used to shoot down the Syrian plane.

Trump Blasts London Mayor Sadiq Khan for Saying ‘No Reason to Be Alarmed’

Arguing a year ago that London has been overrun by radical Islamism might have been considered political insensitive.

But now it’s a statement of the obvious.

With multiple attacks within weeks of each other, British citizens now live daily in fear for their lives.

And yet London Mayor Sadiq Khan — the first Muslim mayor of any major Western city — is telling citizens there’s ‘no reason to be alarmed’.

Now President Trump is slamming Khan for more of the same appeasement that has given a free pass to ISIS attacks all over the globe.

Here’s more from Breitbart…

President Trump tore into London’s left-wing Mayor Sadiq Khan Sunday in the wake of a terror attack in London that left at least seven dead and dozens injured — after Khan told Londoners there is “no reason to be alarmed.”

Terrorists drove a van through crowds near London Bridge Saturday night, before rampaging through a nearby market and stabbing people, before they were eventually being shot by armed police. Their identities have not yet been revealed by authorities.

Khan, who became London’s first Muslim mayor last year and has become known for making bizarre remarks about terrorism, told Londoners that there was nothing to be alarmed about as the city ramps up its police presence in the wake of the attack.

“Londoners should be aware that there will be additional armed and unarmed police officers on our streets from tonight in order to keep Londoners, and all those visiting out city safe,” he said.

“I want to reassure all Londoners, and all our visitors, not to be alarmed. Our city remains one of the safest in the world,” he said.

President Trump, who said earlier Sunday on Twitter that “we must stop being politically correct and get down to the business of security for our people,” attacked Khan for telling people not to be alarmed in the wake a major terror attack on the city, the third attack in the UK in just a few months.

Khan also reportedly said that London is “one of the safest global cities in the world if not the safest global cities in the world” just hours after the attack.

Khan has become well-known in America for his politically correct statements about terrorism. In September, Khan said terrorism is “part and parcel of living in a big city” and in May last year called Trump’s views on Muslims “ignorant.”

London Bridge Terror: Another UK Attack With Gunfire, Knives, Van

Less than two weeks after the deadly terrorist bombing in Manchester which left more than 20 dead, yet another series of terror attacks have rocked England.

Around 10pm local time, a series of attacks resulted in multiple fatalities.

The attacks included a van which mowed down pedestrians on the bridge, added to gunfire into crowds and at least three reports of random throat slashing incidents.

London police ordered people to get out of the area as they worked to contain the scene late into the evening.

Parliamentary elections will be held on Thursday which will be profoundly affected by voter attitudes as the UK continues to struggle with radical terror infiltration.

Here’s more from the Mirror…

The capital has been rocked by a suspected terror attack tonight with several fatalities after a van ploughed into pedestrians on London Bridge and a knife attack nearby.

Up to 20 people are feared to be injured on the bridge as horrified witnesses reported seeing bodies strewn on the pavement after the incident at about 10pm, local time.

Metropolitan Police have also confirmed a second incident at Borough Market involving reports of stabbings as well as a third incident at Vauxhall.

Witnesses at Borough Market claimed three men jumped out of a van and started stabbing people.

The vehicle mounted the pavement at the scene in central London this evening before mowing down pedestrians, according to shocked witnesses.

PAY-LONDON06

Police have confirmed there have been multiple fatalities.

Metropolitan Police said: “From 2208hrs officers responded to reports of a vehicle in collision with pedestrians on London Bridge.

“Officers have then responded to reports of stabbings in BoroughMarket. Armed officers responded and shots have been fired.

“Officers are now responding to an incident in the Vauxhall area.”

The incident comes just two months after a terrorist mowed down pedestrians at Westminster Bridge before stabbing an unarmed cop. Five victims were killed in the attack.

A witness told Reuters she saw people with apparent knife wounds on the bridge.

The news agency said a witness had said she saw three people with what appeared to be throats cut.

Sky News has quoted sources saying the incident at London Bridge is believed to be terrorism related.

Another witness said gunfire was heard.

A voice in a Facebook live video believed to be a police officer as authoritiescleared the area can be heard saying: “Please leave the area. It’s not something to be recorded.

“People have died.”

President Trump Plans Military Action on Syria After Nerve Gas Attack

President Trump is facing an early test of his foreign affairs strength after the heinous nerve gas attack by the Assad regime in Syria against its own civilians. Yesterday he made clear the U.S. will respond with military action against Syria for the attack. It’s a bold declaration given that Russia is already publicly defending the Assad government over the attack. With an already strained relationship with Putin’s government, this may mark a turning point for U.S-Russian relations similar to Obama’s notorious ‘redline’ stance. The question is whether Trump will hold firm unlike Obama.

Here’s more from Breitbart…

President Donald Trump on Wednesday made it clear that he is planning some sort of action against Syria. Although he did not specify what kind of action, saying that he did not want to telegraph his plans, he did imply that military action is planned.

The change of mind was triggered by a horrific chemical nerve gas attack on Syrian civilians on Monday, indiscriminately killing dozens of people. The pictures of children being killed apparently particularly affected Trump. The nerve gas was delivered in bombs on warplanes, which could only have been warplanes from the regime of Syria’s president Bashar al-Assad. After the nerve gas attack, another missile attack struck the hospital where nerve gas attacks had been taken, effectively putting the hospital out of service. There was clearly an intent to kill as many people as possible, including women and children.

Syrian state media denied that that Syria was responsible:

The government of the Syrian Arab republic categorically denies the allegations and false accusations about the use of poisonous, chemical weapons by the Syrian Arab army in Khan Sheikhoun region against Syrian civilians who are besieged by the armed terrorist groups as human shields there, Syria also affirms that the Syrian army doesn’t possess any kind of chemical weapons and it has not used them and it won’t use them in the future.

The above statement contains known lies. Syria has provably used Sarin gas and chlorine gas in bombs in the past. No part of the above statement is credible, in view of the evidence. ARA News (Syria) and SANA (Damascus)

Trump: If China Doesn’t Take Care of N Korea, ‘We Will’

In an interview with Financial Times over the weekend President Trump issued his most aggressive language to-date concerning North Korea.

The communist nation has been stepping up its saber rattling in recent weeks vowing to send missiles against the U.S. and our allies.

During the interview Trump promised, should China not take decisive action to stop N. Korea, “we will.”

He will address the issue with Chinese President Xi Jinping this week.

Trump’s first military action could come sooner than we think.

Here’s more from Newsmax…

President Donald Trump said Sunday he was open to the possibility of unilateral action against North Korea, should China fail to join the U.S. in pressuring North Korean leader Kim John Un over the nuclear threat his regime poses.

In an interview with the Financial Times, Trump said he would discuss the issue at his Florida resort later this week in his first meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping.

“China has great influence over North Korea. And China will either decide to help us with North Korea, or they won’t,” Trump said in the Oval Office. “If they do, that will be very good for China, and if they don’t, it won’t be good for anyone.

“Well if China is not going to solve North Korea, we will,” Trump added. “That is all I am telling you.”

Trump continued that it was “totally” possible for the U.S. to act unilaterally, but when pressed what that could mean, he responded, “I don’t have to say any more. Totally.”

The White House viewed North Korea as “the most imminent threat” to the U.S. following warnings from former President Barack Obama over gains North Korea had made in long-range missiles and nuclear weapons, according to The Financial Times.

Trump has not held back in criticizing China over their economic and trade policies, but indicated ahead of the U.S.-China meeting that he thought he could find common ground with the Chinese president.

“I have great respect for him. I have great respect for China. I would not be at all surprised if we did something that would be very dramatic and good for both countries, and I hope so,” Trump said.

After taking office, Trump asked the National Security Council to put together a list of options which he could take to his meeting with the Chinese president, according to two sources. Those include sanctions to more covert activities.

WhistleBlower: NSA Spying on All Branches of Government

On Friday evening while all the political cable news hubbub concerned the failure of Paul Ryan AHCA bill earlier that day, Tucker Carlson had a guest on his show that should’ve brought all other news to a halt.

A thirty-year NSA veteran turned whistleblower revealed to Tucker what voters have suspected for quite a while: the NSA has been spying on all branches of government for a long time.

So, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that Obama might have directed that activity in specific directions that would sweep up intel on the Trump campaign.

Here’s more from Gateway Pundit…

30 year veteran of the NSA and whistleblower, Bill Binney appeared on Tucker Carlson last night. He dropped a bombshell when he told Tucker that the NSA spies on every branch of government on a daily basis.

This bombshell revelation really exposes the level of corruption we are dealing with inside of the NSA.

Binney: “Inside NSA there are a set of people who are — and we got this from another NSA whistleblower who witnessed some of this — they’re inside there, they are targeting and looking at all the members of the Supreme Court, the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Congress, both House and Senate, as well as the White House.”

“And all this data is inside the NSA in a small group where they’re looking at it. The idea is to see what people in power over you are going to — what they think, what they think you should be doing or planning to do to you, your budget, or whatever so you can try to counteract before it actually happens,”

The Feds did their best to ruin Binney’s life after he stood up against the NSA and exposed the illegal spying.

We need more Patriots like him who are prepared to stand up and expose any illegal activity that they see within the government.

Here’s the video:

WikiLeaks Claims CIA Bugs ‘Factory Fresh’ iPhones

WikiLeaks teased the release of a fresh batch of intel documents it’s calling ‘Dark Matter’.

In the press release about the leak they’re claiming that the CIA has been bugging brand new iPhones and Macs directly from the factory since as early as 2008.

The revelation is already pouring gasoline on the scandal concerning Obama’s alleged wiretapping of Republicans, which was corroborated in part yesterday by a senior Republican intelligence official.

Now this is starting to look like Watergate Part 2.

Here’s more from Heavy.com

A new WikiLeaks Vault 7 leak titled “Dark Matter” claims, with unreleased documents, that the Central Intelligence Agency has been bugging “factory fresh” iPhones since at least 2008. WikiLeaks further claims that the CIA has the capability to permanently bug iPhones, even if their operating systems are deleted or replaced.

The documents are expected to be released in the next 24-hours. The announced was made after a “press briefing” that WikiLeaks promoted on its Twitter.
