Arizona State U Professor Allows Students to Protest Trump Instead of Taking Final Exam

Arizona State U Professor Allows Students to Protest Trump Instead of Taking Final Exam

A professor at Arizona State University allowed students to protest President Trump as a group project effort instead of taking a final exam.

Angeles Maldonado, a professor at ASU, gave her Global Politics of Human Rights class the option of completing a group project or taking a final exam.

Her students opted for the project, and the 20 students in Maldonado’s class decided that their final project would be a protest against President Trump’s policies.

The protest took place Thursday on ASU’s campus in Tempe, Arizona, the Arizona Republic reported.

“The class decided that as a group project they wanted to make their voices heard about the issues that are affecting them today, so instead of just reading about the human-rights violations, they’d speak out about the current violations that are happening,” Maldonado told the Republic, adding that she believed it was her duty as a professor to support their decision.

The students created signs and stood in a line outside ASU’s library to form a human wall.

George H.W. Bush Hospitalized Again

George H.W. Bush Hospitalized Again

For the second time in four months, former President George H.W. Bush, 92, was readmitted to the hospital in Houston where he was treated earlier this year for pneumonia but "is going to be fine," his spokesman said on Tuesday.

His office issued the following statement:

"President George H. W. Bush was admitted to Houston Methodist Hospital on Friday for observation due to a persistent cough that prevented him from getting proper rest. It was subsequently determined he had a mild case of pneumonia, which was treated and has been resolved.  President Bush is in very good spirits and is being held for further observation while he regains his strength."

“He is already well on the path to recovery and going home,” McGrath said.

The former president spent two weeks in Methodist  back in January with pneumonia. He was on a ventilator and in ICU but rallied, and had been doing fine. In February, Bush and wife Barbara, who was also hospitalized in January, took part in the pregame coin toss at the Super Bowl at NRG Stadium.

Why Were Foreign Intelligence Agencies Spying on Trump?

Why Were Foreign Intelligence Agencies Spying on Trump?

Last month, Fox News regular Judge Andrew Napolitano claimed that President Obama and his cronies used British intelligence to spy on then candidate Donald Trump. That certainly caused a stir among the higher-ups at Fox News. A week later the outspoken judge was suspended from Fox.

More specifically, Judge Napolitano accused the Obama administration of doing an end run around the U.S. intelligence community, using GCHQ, the British spy agency, to do its dirty work. GCHQ has unfettered access to the NSA database. Meaning that the Brits could request transcripts of conversations between the Trump campaign and any foreign players, then pass those transcripts on to the Obama inner circle. Leaving President Obama, Susan Rice, and others with deniability and no fingerprints on this domestic spying scheme.

The Fakestream Media was outraged. Even Fox News’ own truth-detector Shepard Smith was having none of his colleague’s claims, saying, "Fox News knows of no evidence of any kind that the now-president of the United States was surveilled at any time in any way. Full stop." 

As it turns out, Shep’s full stop was only a speed bump. Judge Napolitano was right after all, as reported in of all places, CNN.

British and other European intelligence agencies intercepted communications between associates of Donald Trump and Russian officials and other Russian individuals during the campaign and passed on those communications to their US counterparts US congressional and law enforcement and US and European intelligence sources tell CNN.
