Judicial Watch: 165,900 Criminal Aliens into US Population Through April 2014
Posted by Staff
Nearly 166,000 convicted criminal illegal aliens were released by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) as of April, 2014. This is the analysis of 76 pages of DHS documents obtained by Judicial Watch via Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests. The criminal illegal aliens include rapists, murderers and kidnappers.
A report from Judicial Watch on Monday revealed the startling details of criminal illegal aliens who have been set free to roam around the United States after being convicted of crimes. Many of the criminals released are violent offenders who have committed homicides, sexual assaults, kidnappings and aggravated assaults. The information comes from a list of 76 documents that Judicial Watch obtained from a lawsuit they filed against the DHS in July, 2014. The lawsuit was filed after the DHS failed to respond in a timely manner to the FOIA request.
This Is How I Know We’re Doomed. College Kids Are Demanding “Safe Spaces” Where Their Feeeeelings Can’t Be Hurt.
Written by Mockaren
I swear, we are raising a nation of pansies.
According to this, a column by Judith Shulevitz in the NYT says that college kids are demanding “safe spaces” where any speech that could potentially hurt their precious feeeeeeelings is banned.
I’m not even making that up.
Examples Shulevitz gave included a student group at Brown (the Sexual Assault Task Force), which found out that a debate was going to be held about rape culture. They were so upset that a libertarian planned to criticize the term “rape culture” that the university president was persuaded to schedule a CONCURRENT discussion about “the role of culture in sexual assault.” A “safe space” was created for all of the students whose delicate sensibilities were affected by the debate, and this space included, FOR REAL, “cookies, coloring books, bubbles, Play-Doh, calming music, pillows, blankets, and a video of puppies.”
According to the sourcelink, Shulevitz wrote that this phenomenon of college students feeling so easily threatened started in the 80s and 90s, when “feminists and legal scholars said the First Amendment was not meant to offer free speech to supposedly racist or sexist language causing pain.”
Shulevitz gave plenty of other examples of this total wussification of college students. And I contend that in every example, progressivism is to blame.
Listen, I’m the first person to admit COMPLETE immaturity from time to time, particularly in the face of fart jokes. But even I know that there’s a time and a place for everything. And college is NOT the time or place for students to shield themselves from varying viewpoints and diversity of thought. They should be seeking it out, critically thinking about what they’re hearing, and shaping their own points of view. Not running into safe rooms and playing with freaking Play-Doh.

These are the words from the Lord’s prayer in Matthew 6:9-13, taken from the King James Bible (Authorized version of the scriptures):-
9 Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
10 Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
11 Give us this day our daily bread.
12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.
