Dan Rather delivers brilliant – and scathing – viral response to Trump’s National Emergency admission

Published

on

Veteran journalist and frequent Trump critic Dan Rather is not supportive of the President’s unwarranted declaration of a national emergency on the Southern border. Many, including Republicans, believe it’s an unconstitutional power grab that co-ops the rights of Congress, as enumerated in the U.S. Constitution, to control the nation’s purse strings.

Many were shocked and stunned last week when the President, in his wild and unscripted, nearly hour-long free-form speech announcing he was declaring a national emergency in order to re-allocate funds from Defense Dept. programs and use them to build his wall.

But what perhaps was most-shocking was Trump admitting, “I didn’t need to do this,” and announcing he was only declaring a national emergency to fulfill a campaign promise and to “speed-up” the process of building his wall.

In response, Dan Rather took to Twitter to prove just how ludicrous Trump’s remarks – and his national emergency declaration, are.

His tweet is going viral, with over 3000 likes and nearly 14,000 retweets in just two hours.

“Their top three candidates are white, career politicians in their 60s and 70s, which I have nothing against except they (Democrats) certainly do,” Conway reportedly told the crowd. “I don’t know why the heck the Democratic party electorate is so racist and sexist. I can’t figure it out.”

Betsy DeVos’ DOE threatens to cut university funding for positive portrayal of Islam

Published

on

The U.S Department of Education threatened to pull federal funding from a Middle East studies course jointly run by Duke University and the University of North Carolina because it portrays Islam too positively.

The DOE ordered the universities to change their program or lose its federal grant money. In a letter to UNC, the department criticized the program, arguing that topics like Iranian art and film have “little or no relevance” to the Middle East studies program. The letter also argues that the program “appears to lack balance” because its programs are not focused on the discrimination faced by “religious minorities in the Middle East," including Christians and Jews.
