Observations From the Back Row

Murderers’ Row at Columbia - Weather Underground terrorist and convicted cop killer Kathy Boudin is now surrounded by fellow felons on the staff of the Columbia University School of Social Work where she crusades against the supposedly systemic racism of the justice system.  The septuagenarian Boudin is assistant adjunct professor and director of the school’s “Criminal Justice Initiative: Supporting Children, Families and Communities” (CJI), which appears to be focused on keeping criminals like her out of prison by abolishing imprisonment as a punishment. As her official bio states, the initiative, which she co-founded, “is dedicated to ending society’s reliance on incarceration and retribution and advancing solutions.”  The school, which calls “mass incarceration” a “central social crisis of our time,” is little more than an indoctrination mill that churns out radical left-wing propaganda largely at taxpayer expense……. The document ends with “Michael Brown matters. Eric Garner matters. Black lives matter.”  But not all black lives matter to Kathy Boudin.

She didn’t declare in the statement that she was convicted of murdering a trailblazing African-American police officer. Nyack cop Waverly Brown, who was gunned down after Boudin distracted the police who had pulled over a getaway vehicle, had become his village’s first black policeman in 1966……


FBI whitewashing Saudi connection to 9/11 - Former Senator Bob Graham says: “This is a pervasive pattern of covering up the role of Saudi Arabia in 9/11 by all of the agencies of the federal government which have access to information that might illuminate Saudi Arabia’s role in 9/11.” Why? Whom are they protecting? And clearly this coverup is bipartisan, lasting through…..

Boston Muslim Leaders Boycott Obama’s Plan to Counter Violent [Islamic] Extremism - Jihad in America. You think those agitating, advancing and promoting it are really going to oppose it? Absurd. “Not a single reporter covering the Summit, or the related and concurrent Boston Marathon Bombing trial, informed the public of this stunning contradiction.” As Boston Marathon Bombing Trial Continues, Boston Muslim Leaders Upend Obama’s Plan to Counter….

After Identifying Him as Christian, Muslims Set Young Boy on FireBecause, after all, it’s the religion of peace and tolerance. That’s what Obama and Kerry and Cameron and Merkel and all the other dhimmi lapdogs for Islam say. Cue the Pope, too. Tell it to this little boy. And all the other Christians and non-Muslims living in absolute terror and fear in Muslim countries. What’s…..

Judge Swats Down Appeal - Federal judge Andrew Hanen has rejected the DOJ appeal on behalf of executive amnesty......

Senate Conservatives Go After John McCain - The SCF and Club for Growth have vowed to defeat the 30-year Senator in the primary......

Kurt Schlichter: Time To Go On The Offense Against Liberalism - I commanded a cavalry squadron, so my default tactic is to attack. And the increasingly desperate, fascistic flailing of the left as it seeks to hold onto power is a signal that its absolutely time to sound the trumpet......

Ken Blackwell: Conservatives Embrace Cronyism at the Expense of American Innovation - Republicans have been in control of both ends of Capitol Hill for nearly four months and one would be hard-pressed to notice any change. Apart from votes on Keystone and overtures to tax reform, most lawmakers have adopted a status quo, business as usual attitude. Its frustrating but not entirely unpredictable.......

Rachel Alexander: Ted Stevens: The Left’s Original Blueprint on How to Destroy an Elected Republican - It has been almost five years since former Alaska Republican Senator Ted Stevens tragically died in a plane crash, and over six years since he left the Senate in humiliation. The left viciously targeted him when he was 84, abusing the legal system using classic Alinsky tactics until Stevens name and career were utterly destroyed......

Matt Barber: Bake Your Own Damn Cake - Liberals overplay their hand. Its part of the deficiency. Whether real or perceived, if the pagan left can rationalize a sense of progress on some freedom-killing cause du jour, then itll push, push, push until it falls flat on its face......

Jared Meyer: Millennials Don’t Want to Join Unions, Here’s Why - Unions are in trouble. Membership is declining, public pension plans are dangerously underfunded, and young workers are not interested in diverting a portion of their paychecks to dues that offer them few benefits in return. Half the states have passed “right to work” legislation that says that workers cannot be forced to join a union as a condition of employment. In the face of these challenges, the union membership rate has fallen to a 100-year low.   Membership rates continue to fall as traditionally unionized industries such as steel and textiles move offshore and younger workers choose the non-union sector. Only 4 percent of employed 16 to 24 year-olds are union members, and the membership rate for workers 25 to 34 years old is less than 10 percent. Union shops tend to value tenure over skill, and merit bonuses are nowhere to be found. Young workers are the first to be fired, even if they are more competent than experienced employees. Workers aged 45 to 64 have the highest union participation rate at 14 percent......

Cuomo’s StartUp NY Program Creates a Whopping 76 Jobs, Costs Taxpayers $53 Million - Governor Andrew Cuomo was all too proud to unveil his StartUp NY program in the Empire State. They called it a 'game changer.' The ingenious program offered tax-free environments to tech and manufacturing companies for 10 years if they worked with state colleges and universities. It was supposed to boost entrepreneuralism and create thousands of jobs throughout the state. Yet, one year later, the most New Yorkers have to show for it is emptier pockets.....
