The Real Roots of Campus Leftism
By Professor Warren Treadgold

The kind of leftism that began on campuses has now spread to the whole country, mostly through Democratic Party politics. This leftist doctrine, among other things, maintains that unsubstantiated or even obviously false charges are justified as long as they serve the interests of the supposedly oppressed and fight the supposed oppressors. I described it two years ago in my cover article, "The Roots of Campus Leftism," for The Weekly Standard. I think they need help from legislators and donors outside campuses, and I suggest in my book, The University We Need, the sort of legislation that might help, along with what I think would help most, the founding of a new university that rejects this leftist dogma and shows what a university should be.

Caravan Jihad?
By Robert Spencer

Sarah Sanders, the White House press secretary, told reporters on Monday afternoon that Trump ‘absolutely’ had evidence to indicate there are Middle Easterners in the caravan. CNN informed the Leftist marks who still take it seriously that Trump is, as expected, all wrong and going off half-cocked yet again: “The President did not support his claim with any evidence." The evidence is actually abundantly clear; CNN just doesn’t want you to know it exists. The Daily Caller reported Monday that Univision correspondent Francisco Santa Anna stated: “Yesterday when we were traveling through Guatemala, we noticed people from El Salvador and even people from Bangladesh. Can you imagine what they had to do to get here? They infiltrated themselves in this caravan and tried to cross with the crowd. That would have benefited them greatly.” [more...]

Khashoggimania and Our Islamist Colluding Media
By Daniel Greenfield

While Jamal Khashoggi has often been misidentified as a Washington Post journalist, all he did for the radical leftist paper owned by Amazon’s CEO is write editorials promoting the Muslim Brotherhood agenda. The Muslim Brotherhood leader and former Bin Laden pal was never a journalist. The closest he came to it was acting as a terrorist propagandist in Afghanistan, glamorizing Osama bin Laden, on behalf of a man listed by the Treasury Department as one of “the world’s foremost terrorist financiers.” [more...]

Antifa Targets Horowitz Speech at Dartmouth

A student socialist group reached out to a local Antifa chapter indicating that they planned to target David Horowitz's event at Dartmouth College last night.  Horowitz’s talk, “Identity Politics and the Totalitarian Threat from the Left,” drew protests inside and outside the event along with several police and campus security officers. From the start of the event, which was organized by the College Republicans, student protesters expressed their displeasure with Horowitz. Some worked on their laptops with headphones, symbolically blocking out his words. Shortly into the talk, students sporadically stood up and displayed signs featuring messages opposing Horowitz’s views, such as “Trans Rights are Human Rights,” “ICE is the Gestapo,” “Black Lives Matter” and “From Palestine to Mexico, all the walls have got to go.” After the event, protesters hung signs outside the room including one that read, “We believe Dr. Blasey Ford” and another that quoted Martin Luther King Jr., saying, “A threat to justice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”

Trump Should Tackle Our Overvalued Dollar
By Michael Stumo

President Trump's decision to impose tariffs on subsidized imports from China has generated plenty of criticism from pundits and academics alike. But the tariffs, which are intended to boost U.S. manufacturing competitiveness, are already leading to increased production and job growth in the heartland. There's a looming trouble spot, however, because the U.S. dollar is significantly overvalued - and rising - in global markets. And that could end up negating some of the tariffs’ effectiveness. Here’s the problem: each day, global investors purchase massive amounts of U.S. securities and financial assets. This incoming capital benefits the financial industry but creates few jobs for everyday Americans. Worse, it has the unfortunate side effect of driving up the dollar’s value in global markets.
