The Perversion of Academics

Gary Fouse

In the below-linked article, Richard Cravatts of Scholars for Peace in the Middle East describes how college course (principally, but not limited to) California have been perverted by political agenda on the part of the teachers. Many of the people named in this article I happen to be familiar with.


It is obvious on its surface that what is going on within the University of California violates its own UC Regents Policy on Course Content, which basically says that the classroom is not the appropriate place for teachers to advance political agendas. As exhibited by the one-credit, student taught course at UC Berkeley, that policy is being violated regularly.

But let's talk about some of the people mentioned in this article. I will highlight the ones with whom I have had personal experience at UC Irvine or other UC campuses.

First, Hatem Bazian. Any discussion of how the University of California at Berkeley has been perverted by personal political agendas must begin with Bazian. This character has two agendas; Islamophobia and Israel. In addition to being a co-founder of the brown shirt Students for Justice in Palestine, he has also co-founded American Muslims for Palestine, a dubious advocacy group if there ever was one. He is also co-founder of Zaytuna (Muslim) College, located in a non-descript brick building a couple of blocks off the campus and the Islamophobia Research and Documentation Center, which occupies a broom closet in Barrows Hall (Room 638). I have heard him speak three times, twice at UCI. On the first occasion (2010), I tried to get him to confirm the quote in the above article reciting the hadith about Jews hiding behind trees on the Day of Judgement. He skirted the question and never really answered it, kind of like Hillary Clinton might do in answer to a hostile question. I also asked him about the statement he reportedly made to a college crowd that they should go and count the number of campus buildings with Jewish names on them. Again, an evasive answer. Of course, his statement in 2004 about calling for an intifada in America is documented on videotape.

The University of California has many many left-wing professors teaching on its campuses, but I can think of not one who has brought more embarrassment to UC and UCB in particular than Hatem Bazian.

David Lloyd, an English professor at UC Riverside and leading BDS advocate, is also mentioned. I encountered Dr Lloyd in 2014 when he hosted BDS co-founder Omar Barghouti at UC Riverside. It was the second time I had seen Barghouti speak. The first time, 2013 at  UCI, he refused to answer my question of where he was  born saying it was "irrelevant". It was relevant because Barghouti claims to be a Palestinian (He resides in the West Bank) but was reportedly born in Qatar and raised in Egypt. He received his higher education at Tel Aviv University, which caused a lot of anger there since he works to destroy Israel. You can access the UCI video here.

When Barghouti spoke at Riverside, during the q and a, I commented that he was not born in the area he calls home and asked the organizers of his appearance if they would bring in any pro-Israel speakers  so that there students might get both perspectives of the Israeli-Palestinian issue. Lloyd termed the question, "preposterous". Barghouti asked in response, "Why shouldn't I get my education in my own country?" (which makes his birth and where he grew up a relevant question). You can access the 2014 video here.

It is Omar Barghouti and David Lloyd who are preposterous.

Then there is Jeff Halper, born in the US, an archaeologist who moved to Israel and travels the world trashing his adopted country. In 2011, this crackpot spoke twice in one day at UCI on behalf of Professor Chuck O'Connell, another academic warrior against Israel. I attended both sessions the afternoon session in O'Connell's class and the second in a meeting hall on campus.

By the way; who is Chuck O'Connell you ask?

You don't wanna know.

But back to Jeff Halper. Why do I call him a crackpot? Here is why: During the evening session (in which Dr O'Connell's students reportedly were given extra credit for attending), Halper told us about something called "spectral dust". You see, spectral dust is a substance possessed by the Israel Army (according to Halper) that when programmed with a specific person's DNA and spread out into a target area will seek out that person and kill him.

                                                                                                "That's right."

Imagine if that weapon were given to the US, Dr Halper asked his enthralled audience. In the q and a, I told him that sounded like a crackpot theory. That is why I call Halper a crackpot, and I am not talking behind his back.

So there you have a little more background on some of the characters mentioned in Dr Cravatt's article. It is for lack of a better phrase, a real cast of characters. And this is who is teaching our children.

Bill Clinton: I've been a 'bad fella' and Hillary gave me a right 'whipping'.

In Austria People Are Arming Themselves

Gary Fouse

Hat tip Gates of Vienna and Vlad Tepes

"Crime and burglaries"

Yes, Folks, that's what is causing Austrians to make a run on gun stores. As usual, the Austrian media will not specify just who it is that the Austrians are suddenly afraid of. (It's the migrants, refugees and asylum seekers.) Instead, in the second video featured below, the reporter refers to "Little Rambos" who are buying guns.


What has happened to peaceful little Austria? The answer is that it is the same thing that is happening all over western Europe. We have a situation where the locals are afraid to even go outside at night.

Arctic Convoys

I visited Loch Ewe on the west coast of Scotland today. This is where some of the Arctic Convoys formed up before sailing north of Norway to Murmansk and Archangel during the war. It is such a silent, melancholy place.

Is the FBI in Turmoil?

Gary Fouse

Hat tip True Pundit and Anonymous

The text of below narrative posted by True Pundit also came to me second hand in text form without any links. The writer is anonymous. I normally am very careful when it comes to anonymous sources, but the person  who received it and passed it to me is a trustworthy source whom I knew from my law enforcement career. The reader should give it whatever credibility he or she deems proper.

The report is an insider's account of how James Comey allegedly submarined the FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton. It alleges that he prevented agents from pursuing normal investigative methods that would have uncovered the truth. It also alleges that Hillary Clinton and her aides were afforded preferential treatment. It also alleges that Comey prevented agents from obtaining Clinton's medical records, which might have refuted her claims of not being able to recall important details due a reported concussion. Finally, it questions the decision of Comey to close the case days after the
Clinton interview rather than giving investigators time to check her statements and possibly refute them.


If this report is true, James Comey is not fit to serve as FBI director. We already know how Hillary Clinton has corrupted the State Department. Along with people like President Obama and Eric Holder, it seems she has also corrupted the Justice Department. It doesn't take much imagination to see Clinton, if elected, nominating Cheryl Mills to be attorney general and Huma Abedin to be secretary of state.

Is it not now time for FBI agents to come forth and go public about this corruption of their proud agency? If they don't, if they stand silent in the face of this, shame on all of them.

Jew-Hating Posters at UC Berkeley

Anti-Jewish Posters at UC Berkeley

The above poster appeared at UC Berkeley. Does it remind you of the below poster from the Nazi era in Germany?

Translation: "Behind the enemy powers-The Jew"
"The German Student- Fighter for Fuehrer and the (German) people"

UC Berkeley is now, in my opinion, the most anti-Jewish university in the country. If you need proof, read the below article which reports the presence of anti-Jewish posters on campus.


Please don't bore me with your arguments that this only represents opposition to Israel or to Zionism. This is pure Jew hatred. With the active presence of Students for Justice in Palestine brown shirts at UCB, this should come as no surprise. The problem is that UCB not only has a multitude of radical students, but a feckless soon-to-be ex-chancellor named Nicholas Dirks, who has been too busy abusing his position to glorify himself and build escape routes from his office in case of protests-in addition to radical faculty who encourage and inspire this kind of ugliness.

To be sure, UCB put out a pro-forma condemnation of the posters, but do you think there will be a real investigation to find the culprits and remove them from the university? I seriously doubt it. With a little bit of effort, I am sure the culprit(s) can be found.

This, of course, all comes in the wake of an anti-Israel course now being offered at UCB which will be taught not by a professor or even an intern, rather by a Palestinian student and member of SJP. And you don't think this will be a biased course? We also know that the whole thing is sponsored by UCB Professor Hatem Bazian, a two-trick pony, who when he isn't railing against Israel is complaining about "Islamophobia". When news of this course prompted an avalanche of protests, the university briefly suspended it because it had not gone through the requisite authorizations (which were quickly granted and the course was reinstated). That is what the above poster is referring to. Do you think maybe-just maybe- the same people involved in the course might be responsible for the above poster?


UC Berkeley is beyond redemption. It should be sued for tolerating this type of climate. In addition, no Jewish donor or organization should support this university, nor should any Jewish student be attending this institution.

A Voice From Libya Haunting Hillary

Gary Fouse

Greg Hicks was the deputy chief of mission in Tripoli at the time of the attack on Benghazi. He has recently retired from the State Department-and he is talking. Tonight he appeared on Megyn Kelly's show on Fox News. He does not think Hillary Clinton is fit to be president.

Hicks stated that in the months leading up to the attack, the mission was pleading for enhanced security (as we all know). Instead, their security detail was reduced and only two security officers were able to accompany Ambassador Chris Stevens to Benghazi when at least a dozen should have gone.

Hicks blames Clinton for delegating post security matters worldwide to her subordinates when it was the secretary of state who had the legal responsibility.


Hicks was also interviewed by ABC's George Stephanopoulos. He stated that he felt he was punished by the State Department for speaking out


I have a feeling Hicks will be seen and heard a lot in the coming weeks leading up to the election. This man was the deputy chief of mission in Libya., When he speaks, people should listen.

Destruction of (Hillary Email) Evidence

Gary Fouse

I remember during the Watergate scandal when it was found that a White House tape recording showed President Richard Nixon instructing his aides to use the CIA to make the FBI back off the investigation. It was the smoking gun that showed beyond doubt that Nixon was directing the cover-up. Within days, Nixon resigned.

That was then. Now it seems that every few days, another revelation comes forth that shows that Hillary Clinton and her aides violated every rule of security with her private emails or favors granted by the Clinton Foundation in return for large donations. Many of those favors involved some action by the State Department while Hillary was secretary of state.  Yet it seems to make no  difference. The main stream media ignores it and Hillary is still favored to win the presidency.

Now we learn that even after her emails were the subject of subpoena by Congress, the Platte River Company in Denver, where the emails and servers were stored, proceeded to delete said emails and destroy the devices-with a hammer no less-after being instructed to do so by Clinton aide Cheryl Mills.

"According to the FBI, Mills had instructed the engineer in December 2014 to delete all emails from the server older than 60 days old. But the engineer apparently forgot to delete the files and didn't realize his mistake until March 2015, the FBI said. That was three weeks after Clinton's email revelation and the House Benghazi committee's order that Clinton and her tech consultants retain all of her email records.
The report said that the engineer "was aware of the existence of the (Benghazi committee) preservation request and the fact that it meant he should not disturb Clinton's email data on the PRN server."

This revelation comes as a result of the FBI's document dump as they released the notes of their interview with Mrs Clinton using the Washington political tactic of releasing bad news on a Friday to help get the story buried over the Labor Day weekend.


I realize that the FBI went through some tough times under J. Edgar Hoover, but I am now shaking my head. Why was the interview with Mrs Clinton not taped? Why was she not given her Miranda warning? Why was Cheryl Mills, who was also under investigation and who had been interviewed herself, allowed to be present at the interview as some sort of counselor? She had a clear conflict of interest. James Comey told us that Hillary did not lie to agents during the interview. What he didn't tell us was that some 35 times, Clinton answered, "I don't recall." Why was there such a paucity (as has been reported) of follow up questions by the interviewing agents?

The information in the second paragraph above  is not just known to us now-they are known to the FBI. And they did not see any destruction of evidence here?

And this:

"Clinton and her longtime aide and lawyer, Cheryl Mills, told FBI investigators during questioning they had no knowledge of the technology company's deletions."

That would constitute a violation of 18 USC 1001, lying to a federal investigator conducting an investigation as to a material fact. 

I firmly believe that these revelations would have sunk any presidential aspirant or president  back in the days when Nixon resigned. That, alas, was a different time. I guess Nixon was just born too soon.

Syracuse Cancels Talk by Israeli Film Maker

Gary Fouse

Hat tip The Israel Group, Legal Insurrection and Syracuse.com

It is becoming an all too familiar story in academia. A speaker from Israel-or who is pro-Israel- is invited to speak. Then come the threats from the pro-Palestinian BDS lobby on campus, be it students or faculty. Those sponsoring the appearance know that disruption is on the way. Then some university official gets cold feet and cancels the event lest there
be ......



and embarrassment for the university.

Welcome to Syracuse University, where an Israeli academic was invited to speak-and was disinvited because...

"I now am embarrassed to share that my SU colleagues, on hearing about my attempt to secure your presentation, have warned me that the BDS faction on campus will make matters very unpleasant for you and for me if you come." 



This religion professor, Gail Hamner, is falling all over herself trying to apologize for her cowardice and bad judgment. She knows now that she has given in to the BDS bullies on campus. She knows she has brought embarrassment to Syracuse University. She knows that she has struck a blow against free speech.
