The federal government has sued Trump University for fraud. Donald Trump is taking heat for calling the judge in the case a Mexican. Judge Curiel was born in Indiana. The Donald still feels the judge has it in for him. Curiel is ethnically Hispanic and a member of La Raza.
Jim Geraghty in National Review says Curiel doesn’t appear to be an activist.
Ben Stein says judges aren’t above bias and that Trump is “totally right”.
Democrats and some Republicans are calling him racist.
Stuart Taylor thinks the really troubling thing is that Trump seemed to threaten the judge with the power of the presidency if he is elected.
I was wondering how it was possible that I was watching Donald Trump, the Republican “presumptive nominee” for president of the United States, giving a foreign policy speech yesterday afternoon.
Then news broke that former Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert had been sentenced to fifteen months in prison and fined $250,000. He was guilty of structuring bank withdrawals to hide the fact that he was taking out millions in cash.
How is it possible that a former politician and high school wrestling coach was able to withdraw $3.5 million in cash? The former Speaker had parlayed his status as an elite Washington insider into a job as a high paid Washington lobbyist.
Hastert Hush Money
The cash was hush money Hastert paid to a former high school wrestler whom he had molested when he was his coach. The judge called him a “serial child molester.”
President Obama lectures reporters on reporting.
Jack Shafer reported in Politico on the president’s address at a journalism awards ceremony.
The occasion was the Toner Prize for Political Reporting awarded to Alley Mac Gillis by Syracuse University’s S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications.
The student activists are on to Woodrow Wilson. President Wilson frowned on the US Constitution with its separation of powers and limited government. He preferred big government ruled by expert elites.
And so it has come to pass.
In addition to that, Wilson was not fond of black people. He rooted them out of his newly expanded government and segregated the ones who remained. By law.
Somehow word of this leaked out to the student agitators. They are now demanding that Wilson’s name be removed from Princeton University where he was president before moving on to bigger things.
Victor Davis Hanson, a history professor (and raisin farmer) himself, thinks progressive faculty and administrators deserve all the blame for recent campus unrest:
A group called the Black Justice League wants the name of liberal but bigoted President Woodrow Wilson removed from Princeton University. Liberals are aghast that the century-old memory of their progressive hero might vanish from the Princeton campus.
