Brandeis University Shows Disrespect For Abused Women

Brandeis Unbecoming: A New Video Defending Hirsi Ali
by Chloe Valdary

Published on May 19, 2014
Brandeis University's 2014 commencement ceremony was marred by Brandeis President Fred Lawrence's disgraceful decision to deny Ayaan Hirsi Ali, the Somali-born fearless champion of Muslim women's rights an honorary degree. Hirsi Ali is one of the most prominent fighters against forced marriage, female genital mutilation, and honor killings in the Muslim world.
 Student activist Chloe Valdary expresses her outrage at Brandeis President Lawrence's hypocritical decision in a short video produced by Americans for Peace and Tolerance.
 Brandeis President Lawrence gave in to radical faculty who insisted that: "We cannot accept Ms. Hirsi Ali's triumphalist narrative of western civilization, rooted in a core belief of the cultural backwardness of non-western peoples."
 Lawrence has been severely criticized in the press and by Brandeis graduates and students for this decision. Chloe's powerful indictment provides the clearest contrast yet between Ayaan Hirsi Ali's moral courage and Fred Lawrence's lack of it.

Ronald Reagan Supported by MCA, Lew Wasserman

[From article]
A poor boy from a Russian immigrant family, Wasserman grew up in Cleveland, worked as a movie house usher at night, and after getting his high school diploma -- he never went to college -- joined up with what was known as the Mayfield Road Gang, an Italian-led Mafia organization with ties to the Jewish mob -- helping to run a casino.
Moving up the career ladder in Chicago, Wasserman was recruited by founder Jules Stein who saw him as a bright boy with good ideas and made him an MCA talent agent. Stein was well-connected: his MCA was booking bands for the flashy nightclubs and crooked gambling houses run by legendary crime boss Al Capone. By then, Wasserman had taken a wife -- his attorney father-in-law reportedly was a reputed Mob mouthpiece.
In the late '30s, Stein and Wasserman followed the adage of Horace Greeley and went west, setting up shop in the ritzy center of the entertainment industry -- Beverly Hills, around the same time that the Chicago Mob was putting down roots in the movie capital.

EXCLUSIVE: Revealed, how the MAFIA helped Ronald Reagan get to the White House. Shocking documentary reveals Mob connections that catapulted him to the presidency - and how a probe was thwarted at 'the highest levels'
President Reagan owed his acting and political career to Hollywood mogul Lew Wasserman, chief of entertainment behemoth MCA, who was in bed with the Mob
An investigation into the relationship between MCA and the Mafia was halted and Federal prosecutors believe it was one of the 'political favors' that can be traced back to Reagan's White House
'Ronald Reagan is a complete slave of MCA who would do their bidding on anything,' one secret Justice Department document revealed
According to the producer of the documentary, Wages of Spin II: Bring Down The Wall, one MCA executive had ties to Mob boss John Gotti
'Reagan's whole career in politics was subsidized by MCA,' he asserts, and helped him financially because for a long time he was living above his means
The Mob was probably working Nancy Reagan too, according to the producer. 'She was a driving force behind Reagan'

Anti Semitic Drinking Game Popular in Florida

[From article]
A discriminatory drinking game appears to be sweeping through high schools. Cape Coral High School is finding itself in the middle of the controversial game. 
The version of beer pong is taking a dark and insensitive turn. 'Jews vs Nazis' trades in the triangles for a swastika and the Star of David.

Rabbi Yitzchok Minkowicz of the Chabad Lubavitch of Southwest Florida is hearing about the game for the first time.

DC Pundit Redefines Criminal Liability and Victim's Rights

On the Friday May 9, 2014 edition of the McLaughlin Group, Eleanor Clift, Obama Administration media flack opined a new standard for criminal liability in homicide investigations. She also restated a new, actually old paradigm for victim's rights. 

At about 8:40 into this clip of the show Clift interrupts stating that Chris Stevens the U.S. Ambassador to Libya was not murdered. She said he died of asphyxiation in a safe room. Huh? So why was he there? Because terrorists were attacking the compound? Under criminal statutes if a persons dies as a result of a criminal act the person who committed the crime is guilty of homicide. It may be second degree, or first degree. But it is still murder. The terrorist attackers were not just trying to destroy the buildings. They were after the people in the buildings as well. Stevens was just one of them. 

But she also stated at about 4:55 into the clip, that Stevens was reckless and not concerned for his own safety. She said it was not a consulate in Benghazi, but a CIA safe house. Similarly in the case of a rape victim why was she wearing such provocative clothing? Was she asking for it? Was Stevens looking to get himself killed? That is what Clift's ridiculous comments suggest. I can just see her saying that on a campus these days.

Clift repeated the nonsensical fantasy promoted by the White House that a lame video made about Islam was the inspiration for the attack on the consulate in Banghazi, Libya. Here is a link to a trailer for that video. You make up your own mind if this video could incite anyone to carry a mobile grenade launcher to a U.S. building in Libya and shoot at it.

"This is not an abstract problem. We have a big problem now and it is going to get bigger.
"What do we do when we have infections we cannot treat or when we lose the ability to protect people when having chemotherapy? I think there are very concrete implications, " he said.
The report, Antimicrobial resistance: global report on surveillance, focuses on antibiotic resistance in seven different bacteria responsible for common, serious diseases such as sepsis, diarrhoea, pneumonia, urinary tract infections and gonorrhoea.
