Wikimedia, Microsoft’s Bing search engine, reddit, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation each announced plans to protect their site visitors by using secure HTTPS connections by default

Congratulations to Wikimedia, Microsoft’s Bing search engine, and reddit for announcing this week their intention to switch their websites over to encrypted HTTPS connections by default.

Using an HTTPS connection helps protect the privacy of what people are doing online—making them more willing to read and write about controversial topics. It stops network operators from easily snooping on users’ reading habits, profiling the users’ activity within sites, invisibly altering or censoring web site content, or even injecting malware.

White People So Racist They Don’t Notice Chinese Scamming Them on SAT

Fifteen Chinese nationals have been accused of cheating the college entrance examination system with a scheme that involved fake passports and test-taking impostors, according to a federal indictment unsealed on Thursday.

The 35-count indictment, which was returned on May 21 in the Western District of Pennsylvania, sketches out a complex scheme in which certain individuals are accused of paying impostors using fake Chinese passports to take college entrance exams, mostly at testing sites in the Pittsburgh area, including the SAT and the Test of English as a Foreign Language, or Toefl, in the hope of using them to gain admission to American colleges. . . . .

This is undoubtedly the fault of white people, probably for not being able to tell Chinese people apart.

http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2015/05/19/number-of-homeschooled-children-soars-in-america-up-61-8-over-10-years/

Newly released data from the U.S. Department of Education shows that between 2003-2012, the number of American children between ages 5 to 17 who are homeschooled has risen 61.8 percent, and that the percentage homeschooled in that age range has increased from 2.2 to 3.4 percent.

According to data published on May 7 by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), in 2003 1,096,000 school-aged children were homeschooled in the U.S., representing 2.2 percent of the total number of students in that age range that year. In 2012, the number homeschooled was 1,773,000, or 3.4 percent of elementary and secondary school-aged children that year.

The increase in the number of children homeschooled between 2003 and 2012 is 677,000—or 61.8 percent.

HIT & RUN BLOG RSS At U-M, Sexual Violence Includes ‘Discounting Feelings,’ ‘Withholding Sex’

Feminists. Ridiculing and destroying the only culture in the world that tolerates them

The redefinition of the word violence continues among revelations that discounting a sexual partner’s feelings and withholding sex constitutes sexual violence at the University of Michigan. The relevant info can be found at the university’s “Stop Abuse” webpage:

Examples of sexual violence include: discounting the partner’s feelings regarding sex; criticizing the partner sexually; touching the partner sexually in inappropriate and uncomfortable ways; withholding sex and affection; always demanding sex; forcing partner to strip as a form of humiliation (maybe in front of children), to witness sexual acts, to participate in uncomfortable sex or sex after an episode of violence, to have sex with other people; and using objects and/or weapons to hurt during sex or threats to back up demands for sex.

Texas Town Fires Entire Police Department, Crime Drops By 61%

A Texas town has proven that there is a solution to out of control cops after it replaced the entire police department with private security officers and saw a remarkable drop in crime by 61%.

Sharpstown, located southwest of Houston, decided in 2012 that regular public policing was proving wholly ineffective, and opted not to renew a contract with the constable’s office.

Instead the town’s civic leaders hired private security agents with the company SEAL Security Solutions, and devised a more effective policing strategy.

“Since we’ve been in there, an independent crime study that they’ve had done [indicates] we’ve reduced the crime by 61%” in just 20 months, James Alexander, Director of Operations for SEAL told reporters with guns.com.

That is an estimated slashing of criminal activity of almost two thirds in just over a year and a half.

Alexander believes that the reason for such a dramatic drop has come with more sensible policing in areas that need it the most.

“We do directed patrols, meaning we don’t just put an officer out there and say ‘here, go patrol.’ We look at recent crime stats, and we work off of those crime stats.” he states.

Anti-intellectualism is taking over the US

When they communists were outside academia seeking entry, they promoted free speech as a general principle. Now that they’re inside, they promote banning “hate speech” as a general principle.

They left’s rhetoric can’t be taken as truth speaking. It’s completely Machiavelian.

Data on Leftist Academia

—“In its examinations of more than 150 departments and upper-level administrations at the 32 colleges and universities, the CSPC found that the overall ratio of registered Democrats to registered Republicans was greater than than 10-to-1 (1,397 Democrats, 134 Republicans). Although in the nation at large, registered Democrats and Republicans were roughly equal in number, not a single department at any of the 32 schools managed to achieve anything even remotely approaching parity in party affiliations. The closest any school came to parity was Northwestern University, where 80% of the faculty members were registered Democrats and 20% were registered Republicans.”—

—“By their own description, 72 percent of those teaching at American universities and colleges are liberal and 15 percent are conservative, says the study being published this week. The imbalance is almost as striking in partisan terms, with 50 percent of the faculty members surveyed identifying themselves as Democrats and 11 percent as Republicans.”— (from 2005)

—“Liberal profs admit they’d discriminate against conservatives in hiring, advancement

It’s not every day that left-leaning academics admit that they would discriminate against a minority.

But that was what they did in a peer-reviewed study of political diversity in the field of social psychology, which will be published in the September edition of the journal Perspectives on Psychological Science. . . .

Other studies reveal that 5 percent to 7 percent of faculty openly identify as Republicans. By contrast, about 20 percent of the general population are liberal and 40 percent are conservative.”—

In the fifties, when the communists, progressives, and leftists of all kinds were OUTSIDE of academia, their big idea was freedom of speech. But as usual, lefties are a bunch of savage, power-hungry Machiavelian back stabbers. Now that they’ve seized academia, their big idea isn’t free speech, but hate speech.
