UC Berkeley Cancels Palestine Class Midway Through Term

By John K. Wilson
Academe Blog

Suspending a course in the middle of a semester is one of the most serious actions a university can take. On Sept. 13, Dean Carla Hesse of the University of California at Berkeley did exactly that to a student-taught DeCal class about Palestine.

DeCal stands for Democratic Education at Cal, an old-fashioned tradition where undergraduate students teach 1 or 2 unit courses, pass/fail, to their peers. The instructors, called facilitators, plan their own courses, which must be approved by a faculty committee and the chair of a department.

In a statement, Paul Hadweh, the student facilitator, declared:

I complied with all policies and procedures required for creating the course. The course was vetted and fully supported by the faculty advisor, the department chair, and the Academic Senate’s Committee on Courses of Instruction (COCI).

The university suspended the course without consulting me, the faculty sponsor, the chair of the department, or the Academic Senate’s COCI, which is responsible for approving all UC Berkeley Courses. The university did not contact us to discuss concerns prior to suspending our course.

B’nai Brith Celebrates Sacking of York U Lab Technician

‘Anti-Semitic’ social media posts cited

Next Target: Lethbridge U Prof. Anthony Hall

Powerful anti-free speech forces struck a major blow against Canadian academe and civil society this week with the firing of a veteran York University laboratory technician from his position in the Department of Physics and Astronomy.

Canada’s branch of B’nai Brith pointed to controversial social media posts the group deemed anti-Semetic to request York administrators take “real action” against the employee.

Ilana Shneider of CIJ News reports:

In a letter from the Office of the Dean, Faculty of Science at York University which was obtained by CIJnews, Nikolaos Balaskas was terminated for cause effective September 14, 2016 because of “continued conduct, actions and behaviours” which are “unacceptable and inconsistent with your obligations and responsibilities as an employee of York University”.

“This is a very positive step, coming from a university where there have been ongoing, and very public, issues of antisemitism. It is incredibly heartening to see that the administration, in this case, not only took the allegations seriously but took real action to correct the problem,” said Amanda Hohmann, National Director, of The League For Human Rights of B’nai Brith Canada.

‘Zika Threat’: Corporate News Coverage of Aerial Pesticide Deployment Uses ‘Expert’ Sources with CDC, Government Ties

Blackout on Puerto Rico’s federal lawsuit against CDC over Naled

By James F. Tracy

Major Western news media’s coverage of the alleged dangers posed by the Zika virus and “preventative” measures mandated by overreaching federal agencies is a textbook example of censorship by omission, intentional oversight of facts, and deference to questionable “expert” authority to assuage valid public concern over aerial deployment of dangerous pesticides.

This summer South Florida public health authorities under the direction of the Centers For Disease Control asserted that a handful of Zika cases warrants a mass aerial spraying campaign to protect the public and unborn, all of whom may be susceptible to microcephaly—a prenatal neurological condition characterized by deformation of the head.

Hillary Collapses at Ground Zero

Despite government/corporate-controlled media’s attempts to gloss over Hillary Clinton’s health-related episodes they are becoming increasingly apparent and difficult to ignore. The most recent occurred this morning when Clinton left early from 9/11 memorial services and collapsed just before attempting to climb aboard the ambulance van specially designed for her campaign appearances. The episode was captured in high definition video with area law enforcement present, as chronicled in this new video.

Hillary Clinton wore an ear phone at Commander-In-Chief Forum

This post was originally published on Fellowship of the Minds.

Last night, NBC’s Matt Lauer hosted a live townhall event — the Commander In Chief Forum in New York City — wherein he separately interviewed Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump on national security, military affairs and veterans issues in front of an audience mainly made up of members of the military.

Conservative actor James Woods, a rare breed in Hollywood, tweeted this:

Here’s the HD image of Hillary with the ear piece in her left ear:

Woods also tweeted a Clinton email from the Wikileaks archive in which Huma Abedin asked Hillary, “Did u take your earpiece or do I need to get it?”

james-woods-tweet1Woods then linked to an article by TruePundit which reported that Hillary was wearing an earpiece to receive “stealth coaching” during the NBC live town hall event.

Donald Trump’s “‘False Economy’ Nonsense”

Career Politicos Balk at Allegation of Central Bankers’ Market Shenanigans

By James F. Tracy

The federal government is guilty of numerous fraudulent practices, not the least of which is its collusion with the private Federal Reserve over the past century to devalue the US currency and rob people of their buying power while creating an almost endless state of war, thereby further allowing the central bank to undermine the host government’s resources and constituencies.

Could it be there’s finally one candidate from the Demopublican monolith that really does “get it”? Based on rhetoric alone this election season (and in the unfortunate absence of a Ron Paul candidacy) there are stark differences between the two major candidates, particularly in terms of pointing to the ongoing economic fraud briefly described above.

ZeroHedge observes:

Wolfgang Halbig Coerced Into Removing ‘Sandy Hook Justice Report’ Website, Ceasing Investigation

Updated 8/31/16 at 10:15AM ET

Unknown Parties Give Former Florida State Trooper Written Ultimatum

Wolfgang Halbig has taken his Sandy Hook Justice Report site offline, apparently at the behest of forces not yet named who have vigorously opposed the school safety expert’s continued investigation of the Sandy Hook school massacre event. As of 4:30PM ET Tuesday August 30 the site is no longer available on the web.

MHB has been unable to reach Halbig by phone for comment. The school safety consultant and former Florida State Trooper told us last week he was traveling to Newtown the week of August 22 to followup on pending Freedom of Information requests on documentation that would only further contradict how the Sandy Hook event transpired as reported by major media throughout the world.
