Professor watchlist causes stir Turning Point USA, a conservative organization made up of high school and college students, has compiled a website database of more than 200 professors at universities across the nation that “discriminate against conservative students and advance leftist propaganda in the classroom.� The website, professorwatchlist.org, doesn’t list just any professor — TPUSA requires proof. “This watchlist is an aggregated list of pre-existing news stories that were published by a variety of news organizations,� the website states. “While we accept tips for new additions on our website, we only publish profiles on incidents that have already been reported by a credible source.� The website also says that TPUSA is not attempting to silence the professors on the list, but instead they are exposing “specific incidents and names of professors that advance a radical agenda in lecture halls.� Since its recent debut, the list has seen no shortage of harsh criticism. Slate author Rebecca Schuman deemed the watchlist “grotesque,� and called it “a stock agency for photos of self-satisfied young white people.� “Intentionally or not, the Professor Watchlist, simply by being a self-styled watch list, has aligned itself with the ugly, frightening new political status quo,� writes Schuman. “This is, indeed, a turning point in our country, a time of fear unprecedented on this continent since the Second World War. Fear of being placed on a list, targeted as undesirable, and subjected to whatever happens next.� Schuman also compared TPUSA members and the organization as a whole to an angry violent mob, stating, “this list watches over us at our country’s darkest turning point, poised to inflame the tinder-dry, gasoline-soaked pitchforks of a mob that has just stepped boldly into the light.� New York Times author Christopher Mele also attacked the list in an article WATCHLIST, continued on Page 12

INDOCTRINATION TRUMPS EDUCATION AT U.S. COLLEGES PC culture has little to do with degrees

By Jeff Crouere Townhall

H

igher education in America is in crisis, not just because of spiraling tuition costs, but because of the toxic atmosphere on campuses. The disease of political correctness has taken root in our colleges and the causes being championed relate very little to the supposed education being offered on campuses. The liberal group-think on issues such as climate change or “white privilege� is so pervasive that debate it not allowed. The presentation of a conservative viewpoint is either discouraged or completely forbidden. Conservative speakers such as author Ann Coulter and columnist Ben Shapiro have faced harassment and threats on college campuses. In the aftermath of the Trump victory, this liberal indoctrination has only increased. There has been an array of incidents on college campuses in recent weeks that are more than troubling. At Loyola University in New Orleans, students and faculty members held a rally to show support for illegal aliens and demand that the campus serve as a “sanctuary� for the lawbreakers. At Duke Uni-

remember when...

1947

versity, the Student Senate unanimously passed a resolution in favor of creating an illegal alien “sanctuary� on campus. In effect, this would turn Duke University into a “safe space� for criminals who violated federal immigration law. At Ohio State University, in the tragic aftermath of the recent terrorist attack, the Coalition of Black Liberation held a rally to protest the police shootings of young black men. Obviously, this group believes that there are too many innocent black men being killed by out of control and racist police officers. Incredibly, among their list of innocent victims was Abdul Razak Ali Artan, the Muslim terrorist who tried to run over innocent people with his vehicle on the Ohio State University campus last week. When that attempt failed, he exited his car and began stabbing people with a knife. Fortunately, before he could kill any innocent people, Artan was gunned down by a hero, Ohio State policeman Alan Horujko. The officer should have been praised by all campus organizations, but, sadly, some groups are obsessed with race. Congratulations to Donald Trump for visiting the Ohio State University campus to console the victims and honor Mr. Horujko and his fellow officers. Obviously, the shooting was a life

saving measure by a brave police officer doing his job, even liberals on a college campus should be able to understand that reality. Instead of the dangers of Muslim terrorism, too many college students seem more concerned about the evils of white Republicans. After Trump’s victory, Tulane University students participated in a postelection rally that resulted in damage to downtown New Orleans buildings and the Robert E. Lee monument, which was defaced with profanity about the new President and threats such as “Die, Whites Die.� The Trump victory has also spurred the Tulane Student Government association to pass new legislation demanding that all students and faculty use the appropriate gender pronouns when addressing transgender students. Henceforth, these students will not be referred to as “he� or “she,� but “ze.� One of the sponsors said the legislation was needed because the “recent elections have directly threatened the safety and inclusivity of many people.� How President-Elect Donald Trump is threatening the safety of Tulane students was not explained. Clearly, the concept of a Trump presidency is unsettling to college students and professors throughout the country. At INDOCTRINATION, continued on Page 12

‘PASSENGERS’ TAKES ON THE UNIVERSE BEAUTIFULLY

Pratt and Lawrence shine in space drama By Jeri Jacquin MilitaryPress

In theaters from director Morten Tyldum and Columbia Pictures is a journey gone wrong, especially when you are only a passenger. Heading toward the new planet of Homestead II is a ship called the Avalon making a 120-year journey. Aboard this ship in hibernation are 300 crew and 5,000 passengers who are embarking on a new life on this distant planet. The Avalon is on autopilot of sorts, with the mission objective of waking up the crew a few months before arriving at their new home. After an incident in space, one kryotube is disrupted and Jim Preston (Chris Pratt) is suddenly awakened 90 years too soon. After realizing that he is the only one, Jim goes about learning all he can about the ship, but is stumped on how to restart his kryotube or how to get into the ship’s computer. He does, however,  have a bit of company in Arthur (Michael Sheen), a bartender who offers Jim a few friendly words of advice now and then. Trying to decide what to do next, Jim comes across Aurora Lane (Jennifer  Lawrence) asleep in her kryotube, and has nothing but time to learn about her. In the next moment, Aurora is awake and finds herself in the same thought processes as Jim! The two fall in love, but let’s face it: This is space where nothing is predictable. They are surprised when Gus Mancuso (Lawrence Fishburne) announces that he is also awake and a member of the  ship’s crew. This couldn’t come at a more perfect time, since the Avalon needs someone who knows the ship. Now all three must work together to make sure the Avalon reaches its destination before it’s too late! Pratt as Jim is a joy to watch, especially as he wanders around the ship learning how to make the best use of his time alone. His creativity only goes so far, as it

would for anyone, but he is mentally saved when Aurora joins him. Pratt is a triple threat in that he has a great sense of the comedic but can flip the switch and become very vulnerable and jump into selfless super hero mode all in a  two-hour film. Not that I wasn’t a fan before, but Pratt really showed his stuff in “Guardians of the Galaxy� taking the lead and having his moment to shine. He does well in “Passengers,� and absolutely won’t disappoint. Lawrence as Aurora is smart, funny, beautiful and every bit a realist when it comes to her journey through space. She doesn’t let the character of Aurora outshine, but instead is on a totally level playing field with Pratt. That is what I appre-

ciated about her role here, because her character had moments and pulled it together when she needed to the most. I have to give Lawrence credit also for just playing this role so super cool and subtly sexy. Sheen as Arthur is hilarious as well as impeccably dressed and has all the smooth lines one would expect from a bartender. There is something about Sheen that just draws me in, and of course I’m sure the awesome accent has something to do with it or perhaps the soulful eyes. Whatever it is, when he is on screen I dang well pay attention. With the recent news that he is taking a break from acting to focus on politics gives my heart pause and a serious frowny face. Yes, it’s like that! Fishburne as Mancuso has

a small role, but he speaks volumes, as Fishburne has a tendency to do. TUBS OF POPCORN: I give “Passengers� four tubs of popcorn out of five. This space adventure has remnants of other space films that I actually happen to like, so I embraced this adventure/romance/ jaunt into a world that, once you are in it, there is no control no matter how spiffy the ship’s accommodations are. The special effects are well done, especially when it comes to gravity — or lack thereof. I certainly  wouldn’t mind taking a swim in a pool in space — the view is fantastic. That being said, there is the dealing with solitude, decisions made on fear, love, betrayal and survival all rolled into the film. If I was to bring in one thing that bothered me a bit, there is a bit of predictability here that I wish wasn’t there. It PASSENGERS, continued on Page 9

2017 NFL DRAFT PREDICTIONS

At the end of a disappointing season, time for Bolts to focus on filling gaps

T

he NFL Draft is roughly 100 days away, and many draft pundits have already posted their first mock drafts for the annual event set for April 28. Thanks to the Chargers’ devastating 20-17 loss to the Cleveland Browns last Sunday, General Manager Tom Telesco and Co. are currently locked into the seventh selection in the first round behind the NY Jets. For the third consecutive season, injuries have played a major role in the team’s inability to participate in the post season. On Tuesday, the Chargers officially placed undrafted rookie running back Kenneth Farrow on injured reserve, making him the 19th player to be placed on IR this season. With needs along the offensive line, wide receiver and defensive back positions, here is a look at a few mock drafts out there for review along with some quotes from the pundits predicting the direction the Chargers will choose. The mocks listed below have been out for a few weeks and most have the Chargers picking in the Top 10 with one pundit having the bolts owning the sixth pick overall. Although the mocks have been updated because of injuries, draft slots and other variables, most pundits believe the Chargers will choose a player to fill one of those voids mentioned above. The numbers in the parenthesis represent the pick where each pundit believes the Chargers will choose. The UT’s Eddie Brown (10), Rotoworld’s Josh Norris (9) and Charlie Campbell at Walter Football (10) believe Alabama’s offensive tackle Cam Robinson will be the future left tackle in San Diego. Brown on Robinson: “The Chargers go back to the Crimson Tide well to sure up an inconsistent offensive line. Robinson held his own against the best-of-the-best pass rushers this season: Texas A&M’s

Garrett, Tennessee’s Derek Barnett, LSU’s speedy sophomore Arden Key and Auburn’s Carl Lawson. The only thing that could hold him back next April is his legitimate off-field concerns. He was arrested in May on guns and drugs charges, but the charges were dropped.� Campbell on Robinson: “The Chargers haven’t been afraid to select a player with slight character concerns, so they won’t pass on Cam Robinson for that reason. by Art Garcia Jr. Robinson would be a huge help for the Chargers, as they have severe blocking issues up front, King Dunlap and Joe Barksdale have both regressed this year, so San Diego has to find a new tackle to help protect Philip Rivers as he enters his final seasons in the NFL.� ESPN’s Todd McShay (10) and The Sporting News’ Eric Galco (6) both have the Chargers selecting Clemson wide receiver Mike Williams with the 10th and 6th picks, respectively. McShay on Williams: “At 6-foot-3, Williams profiles as a legitimate No. 1 weapon at the next level. He shows an excellent ability to create late separation when the ball is in the air, scoring 10 touchdowns this season. Coming off a scary neck injury to open the 2015 campaign, Williams has done it all for the Tigers in his return to the field.� Galco on Williams: “San Diego’s defense has a quietly strong unit, and the Chargers likely won’t invest in it early in the draft unless they can find a nose tackle with enough value. Keenan Allen’s injury history, coupled with their lack of a taller/ physical red-zone presence, justifies a high receiver pick.� FOX Sports’ George Stockburger and CBS Sports’ Dane Brugler have the Chargers selecting a free safety. Stockburger believes the pick at No. 7 will be Jamal Adams out of LSU whereas Brugler has

Ohio State free safety Malik Hooker being selected with pick No. 9. Stockburger on Adams: “With Jabril Peppers off the board, and no offensive lineman in this class worthy of this high a selection, San Diego sprints to the podium to choose Jamal Adams. Adams is at his best when he’s playing near the line of scrimmage, but he is hardly inadequate in high coverage. He is quick to read and drive on balls underneath, and has the quickness to mirror slot wide receivers and the physicality to match up with tight ends. Watching his game film, there aren’t many negative things to say about the 2015 Second Team All-SEC (Coaches, AP). Adams’ elite combination of physicality, instincts and energy would be incredibly enticing for San Diego, who have not properly replaced Eric Weddle since his ugly departure.� Brugler on Hooker: “The Chargers are feeling the void left by Eric Weddle in the secondary, but Hooker has the sky-high potential that could help San Diego fans move on from him.� The Endzone: Other names mentioned on the various mock draft sites were Michigan safety Jabril Peppers, Clemson wide receiver Corey Davis and a promising offensive tackle out of Wisconsin named Ryan Ramczyk who made the successful jump from Division III to FS competition. Aside from Myles Garrett, the outstanding DE out of Texas A&M being the consensus No.1 overall pick, every mock draft will change numerous times before the draft next April — remember, underclassmen have until January 16 to apply for early draft eligibility.

Clemson wide receiver Mike Williams has the ability to create late separation when the ball is in the air,

MARINES TO GET SMART PHONES TO CALL IN SUPPORT By Mathuel Browne Marine Corps Systems Command

This fiscal year Marines will receive smart phones that make calling for fire support easier, quicker and more accurate. The Target Handoff System Version 2 is a portable system designed for use by dismounted Marines to locate targets, pinpoint global positioning coordinates and call for close air, artillery and naval fire support using secure digital communications. The system is an upgrade to the Corps’ current Target Handoff System and is made up of a laser range finder, video down link receiver and a combat net radio. “Our current THS, though capable, needed to be smaller and lighter to better support dismounted operations,� said Capt. Jesse Hume, THS V.2 project officer for Marine Corps Systems Command. “With the new version, Marines will obtain a lightweight device equipped to provide immediate situational awareness on where friendly and enemy locations are, and the ability to hand off target data to fire support to get quick effects on the battlefield.� THS V.2 also allows Marines to coordinate fire support missions more precisely, minimizing collateral damage, Hume said.

The Target Handoff System Version 2, or THS V.2, is a portable system designed for use by dismounted Marines to locate targets, pinpoint global positioning coordinates and call for close air, artillery and naval fire support using secure digital communications.

ing it easier to transport. It also features new, more intuitive software. Information is transmitted via an encrypted combat net radio, ensuring mission security. Matthew Bolen, assistant engineer for THS, said the use of COTS products eliminates the cost of investing in proprietary hardware and decreases the time it takes to equip the Corps with new technology. “With the new commercial products, THS V.2 will be half the price of the previous system, while incorporating the speed of current advancements in handheld technology and encryption,� he said. Designed for use by forward observers,

air controllers and joint terminal attack controllers, THS V.2 allows users to quickly and accurately determine a target’s location and digitally transmit (hand-off ) the data to supporting arms elements. The system automatically generates coordinates for targets identified by a Marine and digitizes the information into a map application pre-installed on the smartphone, eliminating the need for manual input. Once digitized, the information is transmitted to the Fire Support Coordination Center, where the proper approach of attack is determined. The FSCC then coordinates air, artillery or naval fire support

to extinguish the threat. “THS V.2 provides embedded, real-time tactical information with ground combat element units down to the squad or platoon level,� said Gunnery Sgt. Nicholas Tock, THS operations chief. “If we are on patrol and we take contact from machine guns in a tree line, a satellite that passes over once every few hours is not going to help an infantry unit kill that target. THS V.2 is for that close combat.� The system’s upgraded software includes a new, easy-to-understand interface similar to operating systems used by everyday mobile users. THS V.2 will also come with a pre-installed “Start Guide� help app with step-by-step tutorials ranging from configuration to trouble shooting operations. “Start Guide is an intuitive app that goes through setup procedures, troubleshooting procedures and many other quickreference materials,� said Chuck Schuster, MCSC’s liaison to the Aviation and Missile Research Development and Engineering Center. “This is the first time to our knowledge that a feature like this has been preinstalled on a system for Marines.� THS V.2 is part of the MCSC’s joint fires and combined arms arsenal. Joint fires describe the use of weapon systems in a joint environment involving forces from two or more components in coordinated action in support of a common objective.

Go outside the terminal area — they are less expensive, but negotiate with the driver. Stop by an OXXO store (in all ports) if you need bottled water, soda or other convenience items. The U.S. dollar is accepted everywhere. Take small bills for purchases or you will end up with pesos for change. One peso is worth about a nickel. Wear good walking shoes. Don’t forget to pack your passport. Passenger friendly policies: Efficient process for embarkation and disembarkation; the option of open seating allows passengers to dine at their leisure; one bottle of wine can be brought aboard without charge; tips are automatically added to drinks; a daily hotel service charge covers gratuities, eliminating decisions at the end

of the trip. About the ship: The Westerdam is approximately three football fields in length (935 feet). There are 958 cabins, including 162 suites and 477 with balconies. The roundtrip cruise covers 2,162 nautical miles. The five diesel generators and single gas turbine produce 84,000 HP. Daily, 550 pounds of potatoes, 280 pounds of butter and 2,200 eggs are consumed. On formal night, Chef Owen serves up 500 pounds of beef tenderloin and 700 pounds of lobster. A cruise on HAL is a perfect vacation for couples, kids and families — choices for everyone.

INDOCTRINATION Continued from Page 1

Orange Coast College, a student recorded Psychology Professor Olga Perez Stable Cox going on a Trump bashing rant during class. She called his election “an act of terrorism� and implied that he was a “white supremacist.� She had even harsher condemnation of Vice President-elect Mike Pence, calling him “one of the most antigay humans in this country.� Professor Cox laughably charged Trump supporters with launching an “assault� against the country; however, the real verbal assault took place when Hillary Clinton labeled millions of Trump supporters “a basket of deplorables.� In contrast,

Trump supporters love their country and supported a candidate who had a simple slogan, “Make America Great Again.� Instead of firing this professor, her union criticized the student who posted the video and exposed this hateful rhetoric. The union said that it was “an illegal recording without the permission of the instructor. The student will be identified and may be facing legal action.� This incident is not unique. On our college campuses, today, politically correct professors and liberal proselytization is protected, while whistle-blowers and open debate are condemned. It is time for parents to start questioning the wisdom of paying such high tuition costs for indoctrination, not education.
