What This Liberal University Has Banned Professors From Saying Reveals Everything

According to recent reports, University of California President Janet Napolitano was behind the recent decision to discourage the school’s faculty from using dozens of potentially offensive words and phrases dubbed ‘microaggressions.’ Far from shunning only openly bigoted or hateful speech, phrases as historically inoffensive as “America is the land of opportunity” are off-limits under the new code.

Staff members were informed of the new standards during a series of training events held across the UC network during the 2014-15 school year. When The College Fix received a copy of the report that resulted from these sessions, its subsequent article exposing the politically correct mandate began to attract social media attention.

Some seized on the fact that, for graduates of the left-leaning UC, banning references to “the land of opportunity” might be appropriate.

Others took their criticism of the Napolitano initiative in a more personal direction.


The list of phrases no longer acceptable on campus includes numerous other examples of what many are denouncing as political correctness run amok. Among them are:

I believe the most qualified person should get the job.

When I look at you, I don’t see color.

Everyone can succeed in this society, if they work hard enough.

Where are you from or where were you born?

There is only one race, the human race.

UC’s ostensible motivation in implementing the new policy is a desire to cut down on “statements which assert that race or gender does not place a role in life successes.”

Many social media critics, however, identified political correctness as the ultimate objective.

Oops! See The Moment This Former Obama Official’s Hot-Mic Word Bomb Blows Up In Her Face

Image Credit: KBCW-TV

When Janet Napolitano was President Obama’s head of Homeland Security, those who didn’t care much for her polices and practices that they deemed intrusive and overbearing adopted a nickname for Napolitano given to her by Matt Drudge — “Big Sis.”

Now, as president of the University of California, Big Sis finds herself in a big rift with students angry over planned tuition increases as well as Napolitano’s reaction to their tuition-hike protest.

During a meeting on the scheduled jumps in the cost of attending the university, a group of protesting students decided that taking their clothes off and shouting disruptively about their complaints would be a good idea.

As the CBS-TV affiliate in San Francisco reported, “a group of the protesters…pulled their clothes off down to their underwear during the demonstration, revealing the words Student Debt written on their bodies.”

That’s when Janet Napolitano was caught on camera, on a hot mic, remarking to a colleague that they should leave the room, adding that they didn’t have to listen “to this cr*p.”

That comment didn’t sit well with students who noted that earlier in the meeting, Napolitano had made a point of welcoming input about the planned tuition hikes at the already-pricey University of California.

You can watch the KBCW-TV report on the 4-letter-word hot mic moment for Big Sis by clicking on the video above.

It should be noted that Napolitano later apologized for her “cr*p” remark in reaction to half-naked protestors yelling at her.

Video: Boston Bombing May Be Tied To Reservoir Poisoning Plot

As the country was preparing to mark the one-month anniversary of the Boston terrorist attack, in the middle of the night, on May 14, seven self-identified Muslims broke into the Quabbin reservoir. The Quabbin reservoir in Belchertown, Massachusetts covers thirty-nine square miles, holds an astounding 400 billion gallons of water, and supplies the majority of the water supply to the Greater Boston area. A Massachusetts State Trooper happened upon the scene a few minutes after midnight as the five men and two women were climbing into their vehicles to leave. They were immediately arrested for trespassing.  They all denied any wrongdoing, stating they were all recent chemical engineering graduates and were simply on a field trip to marvel at the largest inland body of water in the state of Massachusetts. Why they chose to go on their “field trip” in the middle of the night when nothing could be seen was not explained.

The Feds quickly took over the investigation. Given that they all had a background in chemical engineering, the reservoir was tested for contamination. An odd secrecy surrounded the incident almost immediately, as any information, besides the nationality of the trespassers—Saudi Arabian, Pakistani, and Chinese—leaked in the initial police investigation—was kept secret.

Alternative media outlets filed Freedom Of Information Act requests for names, addresses, and court dates of those arrested. The request was denied last week, citing an obscure Massachusetts state law.

Oddly, no charges were filed, with the Massachusetts State Police immediately filing an appeal to this decision. The whole matter was then pushed down the memory hole, now only being covered by alternative media.

Coming so close to the Boston terrorist attack, the question must be asked—Are the two events related? Was there an alternative reason that martial law was all but declared in the Watertown area in the days following the Boston bombing? Was suspicion that a plot was afoot to poison the water supply of millions of people the real reason for instituting martial law in the greater Boston area?

America was stunned not only because of the Boston terrorist attack, but the de facto martial law that was declared, looking for the unarmed teenager Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, allegedly the second Boston bomber.

In the ensuing martial law, citizens were confined to their homes. Light-armored tanks roamed the streets. Hundreds of militarized police conducted illegal house-to-house searches.  Citizens were taken into custody without being charged with a crime.

Given that America was lied to about the Benghazi consulate attack, were we also lied to about the Boston terrorist bombing?

There are some serious questions. Besides the fact that a possible terrorist attack against the Quabbin reservoir may have been suppressed, America wants to know the following:

Why did the FBI beg the public to help identify the Tsarnaev brothers, even though they had had both of them under surveillance for several years?

Why the veil of secrecy involving evidence implicating the Tsarnaev brothers? The Feds have released a videotape of the Tsarnaev brothers walking around minutes before the bombing, yet refuse to release the video of them placing the bombs—or any other evidence for that matter—implicating them with the bombing.

And what about the Saudi national Abdul Rahman Ali Alharbi, in the U.S. under a student visa? He was caught running from the scene of the Boston bombing, hospitalized for burns, and held under armed guard by the FBI. His apartment was searched extensively in the hours after the Boston bombing, and the Feds carried out a truck-load of evidence. It was reported on April 18 that Alharbi had been charged under  section 212 3B,  “Terrorist activities,” and was being secretly deported at the request of the Saudi government. Just as quickly as details of the Alharbi investigation began, like the Quabbin reservoir case, the mainstream media quickly buried the story. In Congressional testimony, then-Homeland Security head Janet Napolitano stated that all of the information about Alharbi was based on false reporting and then refused to answer any further questions.

As reported by al-Qaeda researcher Walid Shoebat, whether Alharbi was connected to the Boston terrorist attack or not, his extensive al-Qaeda connections should have precluded him from even entering the country, let alone attending college under a student visa. Alharbi has at least a dozen members of his clan connected to al-Qaeda, including members currently behind held at Gitmo!

Adding to the mystery, Obama secretly met with the Saudi Foreign Minister on the day after Alharbi was arrested, after which Alharbi was quickly released. Then the odd photos of Michelle Obama visiting Alharbi in the hospital surfaced. This is eerily similar to the Osama Bin Laden family connections with the Bush administration that surfaced and were quickly buried after 9/11.

What exactly is the Obama administration hiding? If information about the Benghazi consulate attack was false, is information about the Boston terrorist attack also false? And in light of the impending war with Syria, is information about the chemical weapons attack by Syrian strongman Bashar al-Assad also false? Given that if we went to war with Syria, we would essentially be fighting on the side of al-Qaeda, where is the Pied Piper, Barack Obama, trying to lead us?

Who exactly is our enemy, the “terrorist” Bashar al-Assad—or is it in fact Barack Hussein Obama?

Congressman Reveals Obama Policy That Opened Asylum Floodgates

Barack Obama 4 SC1 Congressman Reveals Obama Policy That Opened Asylum Floodgates

Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) has sent a letter to Department of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano that reveals the Obama administration policy of asylum overwhelms the ability to enforce laws. This comes in the wake of a Breitbart News story about the sudden surge of “credible fear” requests at Mexico/U.S. border crossings.

The letter begins by referencing the story that Breitbart News brought to national prominence:

Dear Secretary Napolitano,

I write regarding the recent surge in foreign nationals, largely from Mexico, claiming asylum at U.S. ports of entry. This surge has been overwhelming Border Patrol agents in San Diego, California. Border Patrol agents reported that in one day 200 aliens came through the Otay Mesa, San Diego port of entry while as many as 550 overflowed the processing center there and in nearby San Ysidro claiming a “credible fear” of the drug cartels in Mexico.

Rep. Goodlatte then lays out the concern that another Breitbart News story pointed out—that the asylum process is being exploited by Mexican nationals—and highlights the surge in such claims since 2009:

Such claims have increased from 5,222 in 2009 to 23,408 in just the first three quarters of 2013. According to the most recent data available, DHS is permitting 92% of these claimants to move forward to further proceedings, despite the fact that press reports indicate that up to 91% of these claimants from Mexico are ultimately denied. In addition, most are likely being released into the U.S. pending further proceedings before Immigration Judges as opposed to being detained as required by law.

Obama Nominee For Homeland Security Under Investigation

Homeland Security logo SC Obama nominee for Homeland Security under Investigation

WASHINGTON — Alejandro Mayorkas, who is the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services director, is accused of misusing his position to help a company have access to a visa loophole.

Reuters reports that he is under investigation for misusing his position to benefit the brother of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Anthony Rodham. Mayorkas was nominated by Barack Obama to act as the deputy secretary for Homeland Security.

With Janet Napolitano, the last DHS secretary, gone to work in the University of California system, Mayorkas will be running the show if nominated. But this investigation raises red flags.

Mayorkas, who was born in Cuba, has ties to the Clintons going back to their days in the White House. He had gotten in trouble in the past for petitioning the Clintons to pardon a drug dealer, whose father was a Democratic Party donor.

This time, Mayorkas supposedly secured an investor visa for Anthony Rodham’s company Gulf Coast Funds Management after being denied twice.
