“Traditional” College Can Possess a Bloated Sense of Importance
It seems that college students increasingly believe that “Bread and Butter” careers are beneath them. The current trend of safe spaces at Mizzou and uprisings at Amherst show how these “regular” careers are disregarded and maligned. No, your degree in critical gender theory is not necessary for society to function efficiently. Yes, you have the freedom to pursue what you want, but a large dose | Read More »
Hanging On To Victimhood: Higher Education and the Gender Card
The Left is incredibly bipolar when it comes to discussing gender. They are fixated on it, obviously, but the moment you mention it, they recoil in horror and wonder aloud why you are so obsessed with the subject. It must be very exhausting for them. On Democratic debate day, October 13th, chart-loving Vox published a chart-filled article entitled “For the first time ever, more American women | Read More »
Note to Jeb Bush — This is a bad idea [UPDATED]
The Bush team reached out to me and said The Hill got the report below wrong. In particular, the campaign tells me that Governor Bush “said we needed more options and state flexibility and name checked Tennessee promise” as an example of state flexibility. He does not support a new federal entitlement program, but rather flexibility for states to experiment. Whew! ——————————— Jeb Bush has | Read More »
Liberal Bias on Campus, Fall Semester 2015
It’s a new school year, and students have already made it back to or will be heading for the first time to college. Among many other things awaiting them on the majority of campuses is one omnipresent truth. These are liberal-dominated arenas, and simply being a conservative means standing out in a place which jokingly prides itself on “open-mindedness” and “tolerance”. Conservatism and higher education | Read More »
Exposed: Christian Students Rejected, Failed, and Expelled for their Faith by State Universities
Public colleges and universities are taking the gloves off when it comes to Christian students on their campuses. Gone are the days of surreptitious slights against Christians; now it is open season on faith. Blatant, in-your-face anti-Christian discrimination is the new norm.
Christian students now face their applications being rejected because they let it slip out that they are a person of faith, receiving failing grades for daring to allow their religious beliefs to outweigh the omniscience of the educational elites, or being outright expelled for having the audacity to live in accordance with their faith.
The rise of anti-Christian discrimination on public university campuses is astounding in its breadth and shocking in its shamelessness.

The Sexism of “Rape Culture”
In current discussions regarding sexual assault, the focus seems to be on the surety of the woman’s victimhood as well as the man’s criminal act. If anything, a certain Rolling Stone apology from last December should cause us to pause and never assume the truth in any situation, especially one so life-changing as rape. The act of rape is a most personal, vicious crime, and | Read More »
Salon is Super Upset at Jerry Seinfeld, Y’all
The social justice warriors of Salon Dot Com are really upset at Jerry Seinfeld for saying the same thing a liberal professor said over at The Federalist: The Politically Correct crowd ruins the entire atmosphere. Speaking on ESPN Radio’s “The Herd with Colin Cowherd” on Thursday, Jerry Seinfeld weighed in on the issue of political correctness as it pertains to comedy. Asked by Cowherd if | Read More »
College Students: Vote for Hillary because she’s a Woman
As the first week of Hillary Clinton’s official campaign for President draws to a close, she has still been very hesitant to lay out a policy agenda. She claims it’s because she wants more voter input, but ultimately, it’s almost certainly because she doesn’t want people to know what she believes. After all, taking a star on a controversial issue might scare away voters. Nevertheless, | Read More »
I don’t have a college degree.
You may have watched the news recently and seen people up in arms over comments made by Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker. He “punted” a question on evolution from a reporter, because you know… it’s irrelevant. And of course he is walking around every day, unapologetically not having a college degree and, as we’ve recently learned from our friends in the media, that means he’s a | Read More »
Obama’s Community College Plan
The Obama administration is promising a new education plan that would make two years of community college free for roughly nine million students across the country. Now, I can already hear your response to this, because I had the same groan rumbling deep inside as well. Obama, more than any other president, is really trying to leave a legacy of entitlements in his destructive wake. | Read More »
How to Turn College Campuses Red
For my first post, I would like to touch on an issue that is very close to me, and is a goal that I am working to achieve each day. Most people overlook the issue, or don’t even think about it, but it can change elections for Republicans and conservatives for years to come. During my short time thus far as Chairman of the Temple | Read More »

Sexual assault on college campuses a commonplace activity
In spite of complaints by female and male students about the prevalence of sexual attacks by fellow students on college campuses, the administrations continue to pretend it is not a problem. Among the women who have had the courage to file complaints about how sexual assault—rape—is being handled are at Swarthmore, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Dartmouth, Yale and UC Berkeley.

A conservative approach to higher education
Check out the video below with former Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels, who is now the President of Purdue University. Just another reason we need more conservatives in higher education. http://video.msnbc.msn.com/the-daily-rundown/52179788
