In a move that seems to have the potential to set up many students for failure, the University of Iowa has instituted a social justice degree program. The program was approved by the Iowa Board of Regents on Thursday, and is expected to be implemented by the spring of 2017.
One NFL player, Kansas City Chiefs cornerback Marcus Peters, used the raised clenched-fist salute during opening-day protests at the start of the NFL season, despite the gesture meaning solidarity with communist causes and radicalism.
On September 11, 2001, nineteen al-Qaeda terrorists hijacked four airliners and flew three of them into the Pentagon and the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center. The fourth plane, which was reportedly headed to the White House, crashed in a field in Pennsylvania. By days end, almost 3,000 souls had perished and another 6,000 people were injured. The New York city skyline and the American political landscape were both changed. Fifteen years later, it appears that another casualty of that day was privacy. The Twin Towers came down and the surveillance state rose.

Many students on today’s college campuses are trigger-warning happy. And while this may occasionally concern guns, it just as likely may concern racism, sexism, classism, able-bodyism, the Constitution, white men or just about anything else.
The protest by an NFL player against the "Star-spangled Banner" and the flag is just the latest attack upon American symbols of heritage. And it assuredly won't be the last.
For a self-proclaimed atheist, billionaire statist George Soros sure spends a lot of money on “Christian” causes and groups. But it is not because he is interested in spreading the Gospel, or even in helping the poor. Instead, hacked e-mails from his vast empire of shady tax-exempt foundations show that the radical “philanthropist” wants to change the views of Christians and churches around the world using deceit, manipulation, and money.
On Sunday morning, August 29, a group of about a dozen faithful Catholics stood silently outside Democratic vice presidential nominee Tim Kaine’s home church, St. Elizabeth Catholic Church in Richmond, holding up signs drawing attention to Kaine’s persistent refusal to abide by his church’s teachings on abortion.
