‘Transracial’ Rachel Dolezal charged with felony theft in welfare fraud case

1 Comment

H/T The Washington Times.

Hopefully this liberal loon will get the full fifteen years.

Rachel Dolezal, the white woman who passed as black and led an NAACP chapter, is facing a lengthy prison term on welfare fraud charges.

Ms. Dolezal, who legally changed her name to Nkechi Diallo in the wake of her “transracial” flap, has been charged with three counts — theft by welfare fraud, perjury, and making false claims to get public assistance. According toKHQ-TV, which broke the charges, she could get up to 15 years in prison.

Ms. Dolezal received $8,747 in food assistance, and $100 in childcare assistance, the Spokane, Washington, NBC affiliate reported, citing court documents.

She received this assistance by reporting that her income was usually less than $500 per month in child support payments, a statement contradicted by bank records obtained by state officials, KHQ reported.

“The bank records, court documents say, showed Diallo had deposited about $83,924 into her bank account in several monthly installments between August 2015 and September 2017, without reporting the income to the Department of Social and Health Services. The money, according to the case file, had come from authoring her book, ‘In Full Color,’ speaking engagements, soap making, doll making, and the sale of her art,” KHQ wrote.

Ms. Dolezal was head of the Spokane chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People until June 2015, when she resigned in wake of her parents telling local media she is white but passing as black. She also was dismissed from a police ombudsman commission and lost a university teaching post.

She said in 2017 that while she might be “Caucasian biologically” she nevertheless “had an authentic black identity.”

David Hogg puts Publix in crosshairs demands $1 million donation and anti-NRA pledge

1 Comment

H/T The Washington Times.

Who does David Camera Hogg think he is Jessie Jackson demanding money from Publix?

David Hogg is trying to shake down Publix.

The public face of the gun-control movement demanded $1 million Thursday from the Florida-based grocery chain in a tweet, just one day after calling for a “die-in” protest at its stores.

Publix is being targeted by Mr. Hogg for its support of Adam Putnam, a Republican gubernatorial candidate who is now the state’s agricultural commissioner. The Tampa Bay Times reported earlier this week that Publix had given $670,000 during the last three years to Putnam campaigns.


Mr. Hogg not only sought atonement money from the grocery chain in Thursday’s tweet, he also demanded apledge of ideological fealty to the gun-control movement.

“I call on @Publix to donate double the money they gave to Putman [sic] to the Stoneman Douglas Victims fund, $1,000,000. And never support an A rated NRA politician again,” he wrote.

The monetary demand came a day after Mr. Hogg called for disruptive demonstrations Friday at all Publix stores, one of the biggest chains in the Southeast and especially Florida, where it is the largest private employer.

“@Publix is a #NRASellOut,” he tweeted. “In Parkland we will have a die in the Friday (the 25th) before memorial day weekend. Starting at 4pm for 12 min inside our 2 Publix stores. Just go an lie down starting at 4. Feel free to die in with us at as many other @Publix as possible.”

When asked by the Tampa Bay Times about its support for Mr. Putnam, a Publix spokesman did not mention guns.

“As the hometown candidate, Publix has had a long-standing relationship with Commissioner Putnam,” spokesman Brian West said. “We support pro-business candidates, and believe Commissioner Putnam will make a great governor.”

Trump judicial nominee confirmed despite Chuck Schumer complaint that he’s white

Leave a comment

H/T The Washington Times.

Opposing Marvin Quattlebaum because he is white is reverse racism. 

The Senate confirmed one of President Trump’s judicial nominees Thursday despite Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer’s attempt to foil the nominee because of his race.

Marvin Quattlebaum was confirmed to the U.S. District Court in South Carolina by a vote of 69 to 28.

Mr. Schumer said Mr. Quattlebaum was taking the seat on a court which had been left vacant after Republican senators halted two African American nominees picked by President Obama.

The New York Democrat said Mr. Trump’s federal bench is lacking the diversity that America symbolizes.

“Eighty-three of President Trump’s were male, 92 percent white. That represents the lowest share of nonwhite candidates in three decades,” Mr. Schumer said on the chamber floor Wednesday.

“The Trump administration…is taking a giant step backward, this time when it comes to diversity of their nominations. I’ll be voting no,” he said.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, South Carolina Republican, pushed back, saying Mr. Schumer should judge nominees based off their character, not the color of their skin.

“I’ve known Chuck Schumer for years. He is not a racist, but this was an absolutely shameful reason to vote against a very qualified nominee,” Mr. Graham said in a statement Thursday.

“This is political correctness run amok. Voting against a highly qualified nominee because of the color of his skin does nothing to bring our country and nation together. Frankly it is a massive step backward,” he said.

Eighteen Democrats broke with their party leader and voted for Mr. Quattlebaum. Sen. Angus King, Maine Independent, who usually votes with Democrats also backed Mr. Quattlebaum.

 

 

Target, Home Depot, CVS: 200 major retailers step up to support Gorsuch nomination

1 Comment

H/T The Washington Times.

I can just hear the DemocRats we need to oppose Judge Neil Gorsuch nomination because these evil corporations want him appointed.

They will argue that the corporations want him appointed so he will rule in their favor and not the little man.

We also know the DemocRats do not give a Damn about the little man but the y claim they do.

Hails judge as ‘eminently qualified’ for Supreme Court

The merchants like him: The Retail Industry Leaders Association has publicly urged the Senate to confirm Supreme Court nominee Judge Neil Gorsuch — calling him “eminently qualified.”

The trade organization represents 200 major retailers, manufacturers and service providers who account for $1.5 trillion in annual sales. The group’s membership includes the CEOs and presidents of such household names as AutoZone, Petco, Target, Walmart, Home Depot, Lowe’s, Coca-Cola, Intel, Gap, Walgreens, IKEA, Costco, Carmax, J Crew, 7-Eleven, Rite Aid, Dollar General, CVS, Foot Locker, Best Buy, IBM, Wegman’s, Whole Foods, Cracker Barrel, Nike, Staples — the impressive list goes on.

“The U.S. Supreme Court has been hindered in its ability to decide cases of national importance because of the vacancy that has existed on the Court for more than one year. Judge Gorsuch is as eminently qualified a jurist today, as he was when he was confirmed for his present service on the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals without a single dissenting vote,” said Sandy Kennedy, president of the trade group, which is based in the nation’s capital.

“We urge Senators to acknowledge Judge Gorsuch’s credentials and confirm him to the Court to ensure our constitutional system of checks and balances is fully restored,” she said.

Mr. Gorsuch has other fans. Recent editorials from 58 news organizations in 30 states supporting his nomination.

“While praising Judge Gorsuch, these people have also encouraged Democrats in the Senate to give Judge Gorsuch a fair hearing and an up-or-down vote, asking that they set politics aside and approve Gorsuch to the Supreme Court,” the Republican National Committee noted after reviewing the editorial support.

In addition, 60 national and state pro-life groups have banded together and sent a feisty letter to all members of the U.S. Senate, advising that “Judge Gorsuch is made for such a time as this.”

The big coalition includes National Right for Life, Susan B. Anthony List, Family Research Council, Concerned Women for America, Live Action, Judicial Crisis Network, Priests for Life, March for Life, American Principles Project, American Values — and 50 more.

 

Restoring justice

H/T The Washington Times.

This comment from Little Smucky Schumer really makes me mad.

 “I am not confident in Sen. Sessions’ ability to be a defender of the rights of all Americans, or to serve as an independent check on the incoming administration,” Mr. Schumer said.

Jeff Sessions will uphold the law and defend our rights something that Eric Holder or Loretta Lynch never did.

When Sen. Sessions takes the reins, justice can return to the Justice Department

 

 Obama Justice Department Corruption Illustration by Greg Groesch/The Washington Times


Obama Justice Department Corruption Illustration by Greg Groesch/The Washington Times

Eric Holder and Loretta E. Lynch have been perhaps the most flagrant partisans ever to hold the office of attorney general.

Year after year, they rubber stamped whatever the Obama administration wanted to do, legally or otherwise.

So it was an eye-roller when Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, New York Democrat, announced Thursday why he was going to vote against fellow Sen. Jeff Sessions’ nomination for U.S. attorney general:

“I am not confident in Sen. Sessions’ ability to be a defender of the rights of all Americans, or to serve as an independent check on the incoming administration,” Mr. Schumer said.

“Rights of all Americans?” “Independent check?”

The attorney general, who heads the Justice Department, takes an oath to enforce federal laws and uphold the Constitution. We’re at the tail end of an administration in which the highest legal office in the land was weaponized along racial lines and openly attacked laws that the progressive left disliked, such as the federal Defense of Marriage Act and state voter ID statutes.

Under Mr. Holder, the Justice Department looked the other way as the Internal Revenue Service harassed tea parties and conservative groups. He aided and abetted the administration’s violations of labor law, environmental law and provisions of Obamacare again and again. He ignored the Federal Communications Commission’s unconstitutional seizure of authority over the internet. He actually sued states for helping to enforce federal immigration law.

This past May, the Justice Department joined the Department of Education in issuing a bizarre reinterpretation of Title IX and ordered schools to allow biological males identifying as females to access girls’ bathrooms and locker rooms.

Under Mr. Holder, the department stonewalled congressional investigations into the Fast and Furious scandal, in which federal agents inexplicably provided guns to Mexican drug cartels, including a weapon that killed a federal agent.

Even an ideologically divided Supreme Court routinely rejected the Obama Justice Department lawyers’ zany reasoning. From January 2012 to June 2013 alone, the Supreme Court unanimously rejected the Justice Department’s absurd positions nine times. “The cases ranged from criminal procedure to property rights, religious liberty to immigration, securities regulation to tax law,” Forbes.com noted.

Finally, the Justice Department’s and FBI’s mishandling of the Hillary Clinton email scandal is in a class by itself, epitomized by Ms. Lynch’s meeting with Bill Clinton aboard a plane at the Phoenix airport supposedly to discuss their grandchildren. Right.

Ultimately, the “independent check” on any administration is supposed to be the Fourth Estate, that is, the media. This presents us with a problem. The media are not remotely independent or fair, as was glaringly evident during the presidential campaign and continues to be the case as they brazenly try to sabotage the Trump administration before it even begins.

On the morning of the second day of the Senate Judiciary Committee hearings on Sen. Sessions’ nomination, the major TV networks played up charges of racism leveled at him by fellow Democratic New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker and Rep. John Lewis, Georgia Democrat.

Here’s “Good Morning America’s” Mary Bruce: “Thirty-one years ago before the same panel, Sessions was rejected for a federal judgeship over concerns he made racist remarks. Those are charges he has passionately denied … Senator Cory Booker says he has to speak out because Sessions’ comments are a call to conscience.”

“Absent from any of the network coverage was the fact that Cory Booker worked with Jeff Sessions in 2015 to introduce legislation to honor demonstrators who participated in the 1965 civil rights march in Selma, Alabama,” notes the Media Research Center’s Kyle Drennen. “At the time, Booker said he felt ‘blessed and honored to have partnered with Senator Sessions’ on the matter.

“When it came to John Lewis’ upcoming testimony against Sessions, the morning shows seemed to forget that Sessions held hands with Lewis as the two walked across the Edmund Pettus Bridge in 2015 as part of a march commemorating the 50th anniversary of the same march from Selma to Montgomery Alabama.”

Regardless of the ginned-up hysteria, complete with demonstrations by left-wing zealots inside the committee room, Sen. Sessions presented himself with dignity and grace.

When the Alabama senator takes the reins, the Justice Department will once again be worthy of its name.

Highest-ranking D-Day survivor dies at 100

1 Comment

H/T The Washington Times.

R.I.P General Seth McKee,  God’s Speed.

I was fighting for my country and we were going to win’

The nation’s highest-ranking D-Day survivor died Monday at age 100 in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Gen. Seth McKee piloted a P-38 Lightning — “My Gal Sal II” — on Dec. 6, 1944, during the Battle of Normandy commenced in France during World War II. Germans called the aircraft “fork-tailed devil,” but to Allied Forces he was a guardian angel. The four-star general was even honored with France’s highest honor, the Chevalier in the National Order of the Legion of Honor, in November.

“If you were afraid to die, you can’t be a fighter pilot in the war,” he once said, the Arizona Republic reported. “Chances were you were not going to make it.”

 The veteran, a lieutenant colonel in the Army Air Corps during his D-Day flight, also said that flying a plane riddled with bullet holes did not rattle him.

“It didn’t get to me at the time. I knew I was the best fighter pilot in the war, and I was pretty lucky,” he said, the newspaper reported.

The Missouri native and former commander of NORAD is survived by his wife, Sally, and their two sons. The couple were married for 75 years.

“These guys [I killed in battle] have mothers and sisters and brothers and I felt for them,” he said in 2014. “But they were fighting for their country, I was fighting for my country and we were going to win.”

Top 10 ‘real’ news stories that turned out to be fake

Leave a comment

H/T The Washington Times.

These stories were ran by the LameStream media and not the Conservative Media.

They forgot the hoax rape story that Rolling Stone Magazine published.

Since “fake news” is all the rage within the mainstream media, here’s the top 10 “real” news stories they reported on — and some downright propagandized — that turned out to be, well, fake. It’s the reason this new narrative of “fake news” will never catch on, and why Americans’ trust in the press is at an all-time low.

1. If you like your health care plan, you can keep it

In selling his health care overhaul, on at least 37 separate occasions, President Barack Obama pledged that Americans would be allowed to keep the plans they liked. In 2013, about 4 million Americans got cancellation letters, and PolitiFact labeled the statement the lie of the year.

But that didn’t stop reporters from writing repeated stories beforehand on how great Obamacare would be, even though, the administration knew at the time they were making the statements, some health coverage would be lost.

2. Hands Up, Don’t Shoot

“Hands up, don’t shoot” didn’t happen in Ferguson, Missouri, but that didn’t stop the narrative from spreading throughout the news media and in Black Lives Matter protests. Faulty witness accounts spread the rumor that Michael Brown had his hands raised in surrender, and mouthed the words “don’t shoot” before being shot by cop Darren Wilson.

A grand jury couldn’t confirm the narrative, and neither could the Department of Justice in its own investigation of the shooting. What was confirmed was that Brown fought with the officer and tried to take his gun. The popular “hands up” slogan couldn’t be corroborated by any ballistic evidence, reliable witness statements, or DNA samples.

According to the DOJ report: “Although some witnesses state that Brown held his hands up at shoulder level with his palms facing outward for a brief moment, these same witnesses describe Brown then dropping his hands and ‘charging’ at Wilson.”

It was all a lie.

3. The Iran deal was negotiated with moderate Iranians, not the radical mullahs

This was the narrative in the mainstream media while the deal was being made. It was not until an insightful New York Times Magazine piece did we see how the Obama administration snowballed the press with its lies.

“All these newspapers used to have foreign bureaus,” Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes told The Times in May. “Now they don’t. They call us to explain to them what’s happening in Moscow and Cairo. Most of the outlets are reporting on world events from Washington. The average reporter we talk to is 27 years old, and their only reporting experience consists of being around political campaigns. That’s a sea change.

“They literally know nothing,” he said.

That’s how Mr. Rhodes was able to shape the narrative that the U.S. was negotiating with moderate Iranians, not the hardliners. In The Times piece, Mr. Rhodes admits the administration wasn’t “betting on” moderates taking charge in Iran, but that he was just selling the deal to a gullible press in order to further his boss’s legacy.

4. Bowe Bergdahl exchange was hard-fought/negotiated

In 2014, the Obama administration allowed five detainees at Guantanamo Bay to be transferred to Qatar in exchange for the release of Army Sgt Bowe Bergdahl, who was being held by the Taliban. The exchange was lauded by the press and at the Rose Garden, where President Obama held a ceremony saying Mr. Bergdahl was “never forgotten.”

“Sergeant Bergdahl has missed birthdays, and holidays and simple moments with family and friends which all of us take for granted. But while Bowe was gone, he was never forgotten” — not by his family or his hometown in Idaho or the military, Mr. Obama said. “And he wasn’t forgotten by his country, because the United States of America does not ever leave our men and women in uniform behind.”

It was later revealed Mr. Bergdahl deserted his unit, and that’s why he was captured by the Taliban. He’s been ordered to face a general court martial on two charges, which could impose a lifetime sentence. Mr. Bergdahl has requested a pardon from Mr. Obama.

5. Benghazi attack inspired by online viral video

According to the Benghazi Report released this year by Congress, the Obama administration knew almost immediately after the attack on the American consulate it was one of terrorism, but were unwilling to admit it to the American public. The media was all too willing to swallow the administration’s weak lie the attack — which happened on Sept. 11 — was a spontaneous event spurred by protests of an online video that was offensive to the Prophet Muhammad.

6. Climate change will produce more storms like Hurricane Katrina

In the wake of Hurricane Katrina, the media and liberals like Al Gore were predicting more storms in our future because of the rapid pace of climate change.

In 2006 CBS’s Hannah Storm predicted Katrina-like storms would happen “all along our Atlantic and Gulf coastlines,” and CBS anchor Russ Mitchell said there was “no end in sight” for big hurricanes a month after Katrina hit landfall.

On Sept. 18, 2005, NBC Nightly News anchor John Seigenthaler said, “scientists studying the earth’s climate say we are experiencing stronger hurricanes in this century, a trend that’s likely to continue.”

Guess what? The U.S. hasn’t experienced a storm like Katrina since it hit more than a decade ago.

7. Cuba has great health care; murderous dictator Fidel Castro was good

After the death of Fidel Castro this month, the mainstream media went out of its way to romanticize the leadership of the murderous dictator — saying although the country was communist, he was a great orator who inspired his people and healthcare and literacy improved under his watch.

“How Cubans Live as Long as Americans at a Tenth a Cost,” an Atlantic headline read on Nov. 29, four days after Mr. Castro’s death. “Lessons of physical prosperity in a despotic regime.”

The Los Angeles Times wrote in an opinion piece: “Fidel Castro, human rights violator that he was, did plenty of good for Cuba.”

Oh really? Mr. Castro oppressed his people for 59 years, torturing and killing an estimated 15,000 of his own citizens who opposed him. His reign was so idyllic, over an eighth of the island’s population chose to go into exile, with about 700,000 coming into the U.S. prior to 1980.

8. Myth of the killer cop epidemic

If you were to listen to the Black Lives Matter movement and it’s sympathizers in the media, you would think that white police officers were out targeting and killing black men at an unprecedented tick. Black Lives Matter, and all of its umbrella organizations, has claimed that every 28 hours a black man is killed by a police officer.

The figure comes from an April 2013 report called “Operation Ghetto Storm,” by the Malcolm X Grassroots Movement. The report “is a window offering a cold, hard, and fact-based view into the thinking and practice of a government and society that will spare no cost to control the lives of Black people,” the preface reads.

The Washington Post’s fact-checker gave the claim four Pinocchios, saying the victims studied in the report were not all unarmed, and they were not all killed by the police. The group was including those who rushed and or ambushed police in their report as well as those killed by “police officers, security guards or vigilantes.” As you can imagine, the term vigilantes was loosely defined.

A Harvard study has also disproved Black Lives Matter’s notion that there’s racial bias in police shootings.

The paper for the National Bureau of Economic Research, which examined thousands of incidents at 10 large police departments in California, Florida and Texas, concluded that police were no more likely to shoot non-whites than whites after factoring in extenuating circumstances.

9. Donald Trump’s adviser Steve Bannon is a white supremacist

There is absolutely no evidence of this, but the mainstream media loves to splash the idea around — or at least infer that Mr. Bannon, because of his association with alt-right website Breitbart, is a white supremacist, racist, bigoted, xenophobe, etc.

“White nationalists see advocate in Steve Bannon who will hold Trump to his campaign promises,” a CNN headline read.

“Steve ‘Turn on the Hate’ Bannon in the White House,” The New York Times editorial board wrote.

The New York Daily News added fuel to the fire writing: “Here’s why white supremacist groups love Stephen Bannon.”

It’s all in an effort to smear the man who won Mr. Trump the White House, and therefore the president-elect himself.

10. Donald Trump can’t win the White House

Mr. Trump’s campaign manager Kellyanne Conway said during a Harvard University panel last week that the mainstream media’s narrative saying Mr. Trump could never get the 270 electoral college votes he needed to win the White House was the biggest fake news of them all.

And she was right.

Going into Nov. 8, here’s a sampling of the mainstream media’s headlines — heck, Newsweek thought Hillary Clinton had it such in the bag they printed out copies of their magazine ahead of time with the title: “Madam President.”

NBC: “On eve of election day, Clinton maintains her lead over Trump”

Washington Post: “Hillary Clinton has enough electoral votes to win the White House in final Fix map”

New York Times: “Inside Donald Trump’s Last Stand: An Anxious Nominee Seeks Assurance”

CNN: “CNN’s Poll of Polls show Clinton leading Trump by a 4-point margin”

Janet Napolitano vows to protect undocumented California college students

Leave a comment

H/T The Washington Times.

Typical liberal attitude instead or changing a law they just ignore it.

I hope the tax money to California dries up real fast. 

The University of California system announced Wednesday that campus police will not undertake joint efforts with any law enforcement agencies to investigate students suspected of breaking federal immigration laws.

Police officers at the UC’s 10 campuses will not contact, detain, question or arrest any individual solely on the basis of immigration status, except as required by law, the school system said in a statement.

The move comes in response to the election of Donald Trump, who has promised a widespread crackdown on illegal immigration.

“While we still do not know what policies and practices the incoming federal administration may adopt, given the many public pronouncements made during the presidential campaign and its aftermath, we felt it necessary to reaffirm that UC will act upon its deeply held conviction that all members of our community have the right to work, study and live safely and without fear at all UC locations,” UC President Janet Napolitano, the former secretary of Homeland Security under President Obama, said in a release.

Anita Casavantes Bradford, who heads UC Irvine’s Committee on Equity and Inclusion for Undocumented Students, said she was reassured by Ms. Napolitano’s statement, the Orange County Register reported.

“They are among our most talented, motivated and engaged students,” she said. “They are an important asset to our university and our communities, and I’m glad that President Napolitano has shown, through her principled statement and actions, that she also recognizes the contributions that undocumented young people and their families make to our state.”

On Tuesday, Ms. Napolitano, Cal State chancellor Timothy White and Eloy Ortiz Oakley, chancellor-designate of California Community Colleges, sent a joint letter to Mr. Trump asking him let the students in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA), or Dreamers, continue their higher education “without fear of being arrested, deported, or rounded up for just trying to learn.”

Mr. Trump has said he will terminate DACA, an executive action signed into law by President Obama in 2012 that gives undocumented students temporary legal residence and a two-year work permit. A wave of campus protests across the country are now calling for their schools to be turned into sanctuary campuses for undocumented students. As of Thursday afternoon, 440 university presidents had signed a letter supporting DACA.

Ms. Napolitano, who as secretary of Homeland Security signed DACA in 2012, wrote an op-ed for The New York Times on Wednesday defending the program.

“Dreamers, among other requirements, came to the United States as children, developed deep roots in the country and have become valuable contributors to their community. They must be in high school or have a diploma, or be a veteran, and they cannot have been convicted of a felony or major misdemeanor,” she wrote.

“Today, there are nearly three-quarters of a million Dreamers who no longer have to constantly fear an encounter with an immigration enforcement agent. Instead, they can live, study and work freely. Many are now studying at the system I lead, the University of California,” she continued.

“Some of the debate about the future of DACA suggests that it provides Dreamers an official immigration status or a pathway to citizenship. As the memorandum establishing the program made clear, this is not the case. Only Congress has the power to confer those rights,” Ms. Napolitano wrote. “Rather, the program reflects the executive branch doing what it properly does every day — making decisions about how to best use resources within the framework of existing law. There is no reason to abandon these sensible priorities now.”

North Park University student fabricated anti-gay ‘Trump’ notes, school says

The Obama Media will run these stories and swear they are true.

Then when they are proven to be phony like this story they will remain silent about the truth.

An openly bisexual Chicago student who claimed she received anti-gay, pro-Donald Trump notes and emails after the election is found to have fabricated the entire story, North Park University said.

Taylor Volk told a local NBC News affiliate that she found one of the notes taped to her door at her off-campus residence, which read “Back to hell” and “#Trump” along with homophobic slurs.

“This is a countrywide epidemic all of a sudden,” she said on Nov. 14. “I just want them to stop.”

She had also posted pictures of notes with homophobic slurs to her Facebook account, NBC reported.

The university investigated the alleged harassment and determined this week that Ms. Volk had fabricated the story.

“Sadly, we discovered that the incident and related messages were fabricated; the individual responsible for the incident is not continuing as a student at North Park,” the Christian university’s President David Parkyn said in a statement. “We are confident there is no further threat of repeated intolerance to any member of our campus community stemming from this recent incident.”
