A really strange juxtaposition to have an anguished college professor explain why he has to resign due to rampant anti-Semitism and ignorance in one of America’s top universities, followed by a tongue in cheek article by a guy trying to be clever and keep his liberal street cred by mocking conservatives, even though he knows his side is rotten and utterly lost.

“Look, at least when you’re dealing with Republicans, the fascism comes from above, the way God intended”

—————————————————

Yeah except in this particular case you are talking about a fascism that is an imaginary threat invented by communists to scare people away from voting against communism.

If you have ever been concerned about the dire threat of Republicans shrinking the federal government by 4% you are an imbecile.

Nikki Haley is “surging” in NH because the left is pouring money into getting independents (aka Democrats) to vote for her in the primary to embarrass Trump. The CNN poll was an on line poll. Check the Boston Globe Suffolk poll that has Trump up 20. Funny how no one in the media is citing the latter

"In a new poll from YouGov, which finds that 81 percent of Democrats think states should take Trump’s name off the ballot.". - Nicolas Maduro would be proud.

Also, Haley at 32 percent is complete bullsh*t and no doubt CNN knows it. Outside of the RINO and military industrial complex class, I can't think of anyone who would want to be in the same room with this woman for more than 3 minutes (other exceptions of course would be Larry Marchant, 2 or 3 other men, excluding her husband, and most registered democrats).

If there is anyone on the GOP ticket that is going to surge in Iowa and after it'll be Vivek Ramaswamy. He's well studied on topics he speaks on, has great delivery, more energy than anyone else running, and just a hint of "I don't give a shit". Oh.....and if you've not noticed yet, Trump hasn't taken a single shot at Vivek in any way which is really odd because ya know....its Trump. I believe if Trump gets hung up and has to pull out of the race, the throws his support to Vivek.

I'm looking forward to the RFK Jr rally this weekend in Raleigh, NC. I'll potentially support anyone willing to put Anthony Fauci in prison.....

We don't send kids to college to get indoctrinated but rather educated to become great citizens. The great scam of our lifetime is college. The kids who attend elite institutions have the connections to get a job and will make money the old-fashioned way: connections. But those in the middle or lower classes get burdened with debt and acquire no skills for jobs.

The government has gone after for-profit schools that do this, but the same rigor must happen against those in the nonprofit world. Claudine Gay was getting paid nearly 1 million dollars to teach nonsense. The poor kids, many minorities, "learn" from the progressive professors but can't do anything with worthless degrees. The Democratic plan of paying for loans that subsidize the radical administration and professors, then writing off the debts through loan forgiveness, takes the scam off the table. The GOP should put it on the table. Our education system is there to produce good citizens and skill sets to improve our communities and economy.

This current system of student loans is the lifeblood of the idiot professors and the life failures they produce. It's an issue of our times, but sadly, no GOP candidate can push it.

I really like Nikki Haley. But I really think Trump should win the election and I am disappointed that in the article about New Hampshire and Nikki Haley, no one pointed out that the democratic campaign is pushing Democrats to vote for her. She may win, but she if she wins because large number of Democrats voted for her that will not vote for her in the general election, it will be a lie. This is the reality of modern politics and happens from time to time, however the fact that it’s not being reported is bad. Free Press should’ve noted this. Be the solution - Not the problem

“Haley’s 12-point surge since the last CNN/UNH poll in November is the latest sign that she has real momentum and is the candidate best positioned to stop her old boss”

————————————————

I will knock on doors in the ghetto for Joe Biden if Nikki Haley is the nominee.

"....barely been a peep out of London...." What people beyond our shores may struggle to comprehend is that the UK "government" is basically the UK CIVIL SERVICE (who are Lefty university-sheep-dipped to a 'person') plus a few 'politician' puppet figures to make it all look like Democracy. We are out-front leading the Western world on this collapse of democratic accountability.

The comments from Corum and Harbaugh reflect the unprecedented three-game suspension handed down by the Big Ten commissioner, who patiently waited to issue the suspension until the team was on a flight to their first major challenge of the season (at Penn State). They had to play that game as well as the season-defining game against Ohio State without their coach.

That's never happened before in the sport. Conferences don't do that. And there still is no reason to believe Harbaugh knew about what that staffer was doing. And no reason to cheat, since the one rule about sign-stealing is that you can't tape opposing coaches on your own. But the signals are viewable on the all-22 film that's distributed by the league.

So that's why they felt that way. I think everyone was aware something had to be done. Lots of teams are punished for various rule violations - usually a recruiting limitation or even a scholarship limit reduction in the worst cases. But there's never been something like this, before an investigation even took place.

It's not cheating to decipher signals. Every team knows that other teams work on this all the time and they need to be changed up before each game. Michigan couldn't have gained an advantage from the former staffer's behavior, as strange as it was. Yet the media was relentless with the narrative even last week, which is why they said what they said after the game.

I don't know, Oliver. I think TFP is great, except sports coverage. Every time I've read a sports story here, it's been like you'd expect from people who really don't like sports.

“That’s right: Michigan is the Donald Trump of college football.”

Your angst is so palpable, I honestly don’t know how some of you people manage to drag yourselves out of bed in the morning.

As a PSU graduate, this is the only place I can put Suzy Weiss in her place, so here goes:

The University of Michigan is national "champs" in more than one way. They now have 241 paid DEI employees. Total payroll costs in their DEI office are $30.7 million annually, an amount that would cover in-state tuition and fees for 1,781 undergraduate students.. It's also $127K per year per employee. What in the HELL do they do, Suzy? Also, what's this?: https://nypost.com/2023/10/27/sports/fbi-joins-probe-into-ex-michigan-assistant-football-coach-matt-weiss/

The fools are cheering for the Houties and Hamas, why aren't they cheering for Russia against Ukraine,

the Myanmar govt. against their citizens, the Cuban govt. against their citizens, etc., etc.? C'mon, let's have some consistency here. Oh, I almost forgot, they should be cheering for the people who commit mass murder in the US.

Maybe I have been missing it, but it seems to me that this site has a pro-Haley bias...but I can't really recall them ever listing WHY they think she is a good candidate. What does she bring to the table that others don't?

“those who lack the most basic critical thinking skills or emotional intelligence -- Absolutely describes the woke liberals who support genocide, govt control of thoughts, actions, and life decisions. These people are truly dangerous as they simply run with emotions and the desire to be standing with those who support anything, no matter how stupid. Be it Hamas, BLM, DEI, COVID restrictions, mutilation of kids, men can have babies, America is evil, limiting who can run for office or what can be said by people. They are the true threat to mankind and any hope for a future for all. MIT, Penn, Harvard, and other bastions of idiocy are just proof stupid people can advance if they bow to the radical woke fools who have no ability to be rational and only know emotions as facts.

China owns the ability to subvert and knows how to push control over politicians and people who have no ability to see evil and understand the far reaching impacts of the danger China poses. Idiots cry for Hamas, but ignore Christians massacred in Nigeria, the continuing ethnic cleansing in Sudan, Ethiopia, Somalia, Ukraine, Myanmar, and so many other places. Again we come back the most basic critical thinking skills or emotional intelligence which the woke liberals completely lack and shows what cowards and fools they are.

Democrats who want Trump off the ballots would also gladly name Obama as King. How many times can these fools and idiots claim Democracy is at stake. How about when LBJ created a war that killed 68 thousand soldiers and countless Asians so he could get re-elected? How about when Joe decides he doesn't need to follow the Constitution and by passes Congress to spend money we don't have? How about going back to Roosevelt who secretly supported Hitler at first but was forced to change positions? How about a Congress Woman who might have married her brother to get into the US? How about so many other examples. Save me your BS save Democracy, especially when you really want to destroy it. That's to you Ms Obama who is a true US hater and useless person who is a grifter of the first order.

As for Evan Gardner , get a life and really study the issue. OSU hired Mich defensive coaches for two years to beat Mich and then fired them when Mich changed defense coaches. Other teams have histories of doing similar things or even football players not attending classes. You sound like an OSU fan who didn't have Grandma hug him this morning. Fool, you do realize the Michigan Team won and has the least pro and star ratings for players ever to win a championship? So you want to knock what a bunch of 18-22 year old men did as a team and played for each other? Get a life dude or maybe a job!

You're not wrong to hold the UK govt to account for its failure to speak more loudly about the suppression of freedoms in Hong Kong. But you might like to join some of the dots too: was life in Hong Kong better, or worse, when it was a British colony? Which political movement speaks jarringly and a-historically often about the "evils" of "colonialisation"?

Oh, and I think it fair to mention that Britain has opened its doors to Hong Kong Chinese, formerly British, subjects. I think that's worth mentioning in this context. More than 150,000 former British subjects have moved to the UK. https://www.gov.uk/government/news/government-announces-a-third-year-of-support-to-help-hong-kongers-settle-into-life-in-the-uk

“Jimmy Lai, the Hong Kong newspaper proprietor who has been in prison for more than 1,000 days and is currently on trial before a kangaroo court in Hong Kong, is one of the great examples of courage in our time.”

Hong Kong is part of colonialism and it is only bad like this because the Dirty Whites showed up.
