At least 24 states have either introduced or passed legislation protecting freedom of speech on public college campuses. Eight states – Florida, North Carolina, Virginia, Kentucky, Tennessee, Colorado, Utah, and Arizona – already have passed those bills into law. [This raises the question of why these laws are necessary when freedom-of-speech already is guaranteed by the federal Constitution? The answer is that colleges and universities are not bound by the Constitution – only the federal government is. "Congress shall pass no law” to restrict speech. Schools are not bound by that. However, most colleges and universities receive federal money, so it would be an easy thing to require that they comply with the Constitution if they want the money – but federal politicians apparently are not interested in taking that stand. Here’s a comment from a wise reader: "Making "laws” about rights that already exist opens the door for "laws” to start eroding those rights……just like all the [state] “gun laws” that erode the 2nd Amendment.” Food for thought.] -GEG
A total of eight states – Florida, North Carolina, Virginia, Kentucky, Tennessee, Colorado, Utah, and Arizona – have already passed bills into law that designed to protect free expression in higher education, with lawmakers from 16 other states campaigning to pass similar legislation.
Florida was the latest to pass such a measure, with Gov. Rick Scott signing a bill banning “free speech zones” on campuses last week. The legislation also included a “Cause of Action” mandate, allowing individuals to sue universities for violating their “expressive rights.”
Kentucky is the next state that could join the list, as the State Senate recently voted to pass a bill designed to protect the free speech of students and faculty alike.
“The problem with this free speech area is it’s not even close to a lot of activity on campus,” said Republican State Sen. Will Schroder, sponsor of the bill, according to WEKU. “It really restricts individuals to a certain location.”
Not all of the free speech bills, however, have found the necessary support to successfully navigate the legislative process.

Bill Clinton nominated her for Attorney General in 1993., but she recused herself. […]

A protest by parents across the US will pull their children from school on April 23rd to protest sex education programs that teach dangerous and promiscuous behaviors, and confuse gender identity.

French President Macron said that Africans will be flooding into Europe “for many years to come” as a result of “bombshell” population growth, poverty, political conflicts and climate change. Macron cited Stephen Smith, the French-American author of The Rush to Europe, who predicts that the number of Africans living in Europe will grow from 9 million to 150 to 200 million within the next 30 years. Smith said that this scenario will end Europe’s generous social programs. […]

The Department of Homeland Security reported that city and county local governments released 142 suspected members of MS-13 and other gangs from October 2016 through June 2017. There are no reports after these dates, and local governments have escalated their opposition to legal deportation.

Offline is a documentary on the inevitability of the Earth being slammed by a mega solar flare – not the common type that interrupts communications and creates a light show in the Northern skies – but the big brothers thousands of times more powerful. These monsters deliver enough energy to blow apart the master transformers that supply the planet’s energy grids. When that happens, the lights go out for longer than anyone wants to think about. These X-Class solar storms hit the Earth every 150 years, on average. The last one arrived 156 years ago. We are overdue (More)
