Attorney General Jeff Session At Georgetown On Free Speech

Free speech is the foundation of our democracy.

Speaking at Georgetown University on Tuesday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions cited Daily WireEditor-in-Chief Ben Shapiro’s controversial appearance at the University of California, Berkeley on September 14 as a prime example of how the Left attempts to shut down free speech in America.

Sessions began the segment of his speech by referring to the leftist, violent group Antifa as “Orwellian-named”:

The Orwellian-named antifascist protestors have successfully shut down numerous campus speaker events in recent months with violent riots. Berkeley was reportedly forced to spend $600,000 and have an overwhelming police presence to simply prove that the mob was not in control of their campus, the “home of free speech.” In advance, the school offered counseling, in advance of this speech they offered counseling to any students or faculty whose sense of safety or belonging was threatened by a speech from Ben Shapiro, a 33-year-old Harvard-trained lawyer, who has frequently been targeted by anti-Semites for his Jewish faith and who vigorously condemns hate speech from the Left or the Right.

Well, in the end, Mr. Shapiro spoke to a packed house, and to my knowledge, no one fainted; no one was unsafe; no one needed counseling

“I hope,” Sessions joked.

He continued, “Yet after this small victory for free speech, a student speaking to a reporter said, in reaction, ‘I don’t think Berkeley should host any controversial speakers on either side.’ That, perhaps, would be the worst lesson to draw from that episode, I firmly believe.”

Shapiro’s Berkeley speech has been viewed well over two million times on YouTube.  DailyWire

Grandstanding.  Is Georgetown Law faculty protesting against free speech?

Georgetown Law Profs. issue error-riddled statement before AG Sessions speaks on campus.  Who needs fact.

A statement signed by 30 faculty members of Georgetown University protesting Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ speech on campus Tuesday contained multiple falsehoods.

Sessions spoke at Georgetown’s law school about free speech Tuesday, and the statement was released prior to his speech as an act of protest.

“We acknowledge our colleague’s right to invite Attorney General Sessions to speak on campus,” the letter, signed mostly by law school faculty, stated. “However, we, the undersigned, condemn the hypocrisy of Attorney General Sessions speaking about free speech.”

The letter went on to say, “Sessions’ own office is currently prosecuting Desiree Fairooz for unlawful conduct; her alleged crime is laughing for a few seconds during Sessions’ Senate confirmation hearings last January and then loudly protesting her unlawful arrest.”

However, the office prosecuting Desiree Fairooz is the U.S. Attorney for the District of Colombia, which was led at the time by Channing Phillips, an Obama appointee.  Read more of the errors in the Georgetown Law Profs. statement at DailyCaller

Video: ‘Beating up fascists is good,’ college students say

“Beating up fascists is good.”

what is most troubling is that these anti-free speech beliefs and tactics are not simply embraced by a radical fringe. A recent Brookings Institute study found that a majority of students believe that disrupting speakers to silence them is “acceptable” and one in five students (19%) endorse the use of violence to silence an “offensive” speaker. A plurality of students believe that “hate speech” is not covered by the First Amendment, despite Supreme Court precedent establishing otherwise.  DailyWire

Campus Reform

As acts of political violence in America increase in regularity, a new poll shows that many college students have no problem with it.

Of those surveyed, a startling 19 percent claimed to support the use of violence to silence speakers they find offensive, the same perspective held by the increasingly violent Antifa groups around the country.

Wanting to see what college students in Washington, D.C. thought of Antifa, Campus Reform took to the campus of American University to ask students their opinion of the violent leftist organization recently labeled a domestic terror organization by the Department of Homeland Security.

Immediately, the students made it clear that they had no problem with the controversial group. CampusReform

RNC Video Highlights Global Failures Of Single-Payer Health Care Systems

The push for government-funded health care used to be just the fringes of the Democratic Party now there is a party consensus for single-payer health care.   The Democrat candidates who have shown interest in 2020 are for single-payer.

Video:  Global Failures of Single-Payer

The Republican National Committee has released a new video highlighting various global reports that exemplify the failures of single-payer health care systems.

The video was included in an RNC press release Wednesday after Sen. Bernie Sanders’ (I., Vt.) proposed his “Medicare for All” single-payer health care plan. The RNC video claimed the proposal is unaffordable with a price tag of $32 trillion, and would most likely be paid, in part, with a tax increase.

The video starts with a question, “What does single-payer ‘Medicare for All’ look like in the real world?” The video goes on to feature clips from news reports around the world, including from France, Canada, England and Scotland.

The first clip shows a hospital with the reporter saying, “this morning, there is, what it calls, a humanitarian crisis in public hospitals.”  FreeBeacon

David Wood: “Politicians and the media often accuse Western critics of Islam of spreading Islamophobia (the irrational fear of Islam). When we turn to Islam’s most trusted sources, however, we find that Islamophobia has a different source—namely, Allah himself.”

The man seen in the 3TV/CBS 5 video getting hit with a non-lethal round after kicking a gas canister at officers was booked into jail Thursday night on four criminal charges, Phoenix police announced.

Turns out it was a bean bag he was hit with.

Video: Planned Parenthood Medical Director: “Dismemberment” Abortion “Checkbox” Skirts Partial-Birth Law

A new undercover video shows a top physician at a Planned Parenthood affiliate discussing how her organization routinely circumvents federal law regulating certain late-term abortions.

In the latest hidden-camera video from the Center for Medical Progress, Dr. Suzie Prabhakaran, vice president of medical affairs for Planned Parenthood of Southwest and Central Florida, talks about using a “checkbox” to get around the 2003 law banning partial-birth abortion.

In the video, released Thursday as the Senate again debates defunding the nation’s largest abortion provider, Prabhakaran speaks with investigators from the pro-life group posing as buyers of fetal tissue from a biotech company.

Prabhakaran is seen explaining that to circumvent federal law against partial-birth abortions—in which the unborn baby is extracted partway and then killed—Planned Parenthood doctors document their intent either to perform a dismemberment abortion or to use a feticide such as digoxin, which kills the baby beforehand.  DailySignal
