New Trier High School has recently come under fire from conservative parents over an upcoming civil rights seminar that some parents say is lacking conservative voices.
Robert Blackwell wrote the post below on Facebook regarding the seminar:
I am a black parent of a child at New Trier
I am offended that Black Lives Matters was invited to speak at the school.
This organization does not represent black people and is not the morale equivalent of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference which was led by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
This is from the Black …
As late as 2012, Senator Cory Booker was in favor of School Choice. Now he takes the Democrat Party line in opposing even the slightest school choice programs.
Asma al-Assad: A Rose in the Desert
Asma al-Assad is glamorous, young, and very chic—the freshest and most magnetic of first ladies. Her style is not the couture-and-bling dazzle of Middle Eastern power but a deliberate lack of adornment. She’s a rare combination: a thin, long-limbed beauty with a trained analytic mind who dresses with cunning understatement. Paris Match calls her “the element of light in a country full of shadow zones.” She is the first lady of Syria.
Syria is known as the safest country in the Middle East, possibly because, as the …

For Marxist terrorist Oscar Lopez-Rivera, “chief bombmaker” and “kingpin” of the Chicago-based cell of Armed Forces of National Liberation (FALN), the road to justice started on a spring Friday afternoon in Glenview, Illinois.
In May 1981, Glenview police pulled over his 1977 green Buick for a routine traffic violation. Inside, they found a member of the FBI’s Most Wanted List, a man who had been a fugitive from the law for five years.
The FBI missed Lopez-Rivera during a raid of a Milwaukee, Wisconsin FALN hideout in April 1980. …

A decision forcing a Christian-owned bed and breakfast to pay a same-sex couple $30,000 for refusing to host their wedding ceremony will stand.
A 3-member panel of the Illinois Human Rights Commission refused to hear an appeal in a decision compelling TimberCreek Bed & Breakfast to pay a fine for declining to host a gay wedding on their property, although they have hosted opposite-sex weddings in the past.
TimberCreek owner Jim Walder told The Christian Post that they took issue with the panel decision and were planning to appeal …

Judicial Watch had asked the FBI to produce the 302s, pursuant to FOIA, in June 2011. The FBI confirmed the records’ existence in 2012, but denied the request, asserting that the 302s were exempt from disclosure under FOIA Exemption 7(A) because Blagojevich’s criminal case was still ongoing at the time. Judicial Watch filed suit to try to obtain the 302s in May 2016, after the U.S. Supreme Court declined to review Blagojevich’s convictions. It closed that initial lawsuit while Blagojevich was being resentenced. Judicial Watch refiled its lawsuit after Blagojevich …
The one-of-its-kind, bill-payment program seeks to avert the nightmare scenario for a state in the worst financial shape in the country: a shutdown of essential services such as employee health insurance, a disruption of prison food supplies or mothballing of state trooper cars in need of fuel and maintenance.
But it comes at a heavy cost with unlimited late-payment fees now approaching 20 percent in some cases for Illinois’ cash-strapped government, whose general obligation (GO) low-investment grade credit ratings are the lowest among U.S. states.

(Brietbart Columnist) Shapiro informs security that he has RSVPed as a speaker, as an audience member and as a security member.
He is then directed to some 30 security guards, though no protesters are in sight. He was denied entry.
“I’m wondering why is it so necessary to keep me personally out?” asks Shapiro.
“The bottom line is, it’s private property,” says a security guard, informing Shapiro that he will be arrested if he takes three more steps forward on campus.
“Just to be clear, if I attempt to enter that hall right there, and sit down, just to …
