This week, the University of Virginia (UVa) confirmed that it had eliminated the last of its policies that unconstitutionally restricted the free speech of students and faculty members.
You knew it was just a matter of time before we’d get confirmation of what we all knew in our guts. The Chicago Sun Times reports: Law enforcement sources told CNN they were acting on a tip in the last 24 hours from an unnamed “ally” that cargo coming from Yemen headed for synagogues in [...]
