Here’s my latest blog post at Counter Cultured. Excerpt below:
No matter how many times anti-gun lies and correspondent misinformation are debunked, former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg and his gun grabbing organizations are adamant about disarming Americans.
Everytown for Gun Safety is hosting a training for aspiring journalists in Phoenix, AZ from April 17-18, 2015. The training is being put on by the Dart Center for Journalism and Trauma, which is a project of Columbia University’s Journalism School.

“To travel is to live.” ― Hans Christian Andersen, The Fairy Tale of My Life: An Autobiography
To those of you who read this blog, I’m happy to announce that I’m going to resume regular blogging — well, when time permitted.
Hope everyone had a great summer! I know I did. Now that it’s September, I’ll be making frequent trips into the field (Northeast) to fulfill my Regional Field Coordinator duties. I have the privilege of meeting with eager motivated conservative/libertarian students. I get to visit places like NYC and Boston. I’m 22 – I’m young and should enjoy any opportunity to travel. Consulting fellow young conservatives and traveling to cool cities? I couldn’t ask for a better job!
Tomorrow I leave for New York to meet with students from Syracuse University, Ithaca College, New York University, Vassar College, University of Rochester, and Columbia University in the City of New York. Six days in the field will prove interesting and productive with meetings, club fairs, driving, train rides, people-watching, and of course, sight-seeing. Did I mention I’ll be in NY during the U.S. Open and Fashion Week?!
I can’t wait to help students combat the Left on campus this Fall. I, along with my fellow Regional Field Coordinators, will be using social media to document our campus travels. We will be tweeting and posting pictures with the student groups we assist/meet with.
We hope you join us in spreading the good word of Leadership Institute’s Campus Leadership Program! Kindly share/retweet our pictures.
I’ve penned a column at Campus Reform about Florida Atlantic University reinstating a professor who required students to “stomp on Jesus.”
Florida Atlantic University (FAU) administrators betrayed their school’s mandate and motto last week with their shocking decision to reinstate an instructor who was suspended for telling his students to stomp on the name of Jesus Christ.
Of course tolerance and diversity are beyond bywords at public schools like FAU. In fact the FAU university motto ironically reads “We’re All Together Different.”
Liberal administrators and administrators at schools like FAU, however, seem unwilling to extend these lofty principles to anyone who does not believe and feel exactly as they do.
What could represent greater intolerance for a religious minority on campus than ordering students in a class to stomp on the name of their leader, Jesus Christ?
This is exactly what instructor Deandre Poole did earlier this year, having his students write the name “Jesus” on a piece of paper, drop it on the floor, and then trample it.

I’ve penned another column at Campus Reform. This week, it is centered around a video from Portland State University featuring MSA and SJP students denouncing a pro-Israel event hosted by the College Republicans.
Here’s an excerpt:
College is meant to be a place where free speech comes alive. Different viewpoints are supposed to be welcome and intellectual diversity celebrated.
For at least one loud minority on college campuses, however, the rights and the privileges afforded by the First Amendment only extend to those who share their exact beliefs.
Let me give you one recent example.
The College Republicans of Portland State University, hosted a viewing of the 2005 documentary film “Obsession: Radical Islam’s War Against the West” only to leave after the pro-Palestinian group attempt a hostile takeover of the event.
Before the event began, pro-Palestinian activists attempted to route the event by storming the stage making loud announcements about a competing event in the hallway outside where students could “meet real Muslims.”
When the documentary ended things got worse. The “activists” yelled, shouted and attempted to pick fights with the organizers. The scene was reminiscent of feeding time at the zoo.

I’ve penned a new column at Campus Reform.
Here is an excerpt:
This nation’s elite institutions of higher education often claim to fight on the frontlines in the battle for inclusion, tolerance and diversity.
A quick look at the Ivy League 2013 speaker lineup, however, reveals that their so-called diversity is a front for groupthink propagated by leftist administrators and faculty who run these schools.
A new study, reveals that Ivy Leagues schools did not invite a single conservative speakers for commencement ceremonies in 2013.

This Sunday marks the start of my weekly Campus Reform column. My first post is about the nationwide fossil-fuel divestment campaign plaguing universities.
Below is an excerpt from my op-ed piece:
Many institutions of higher learning are taking a wrong turn in embracing calls for divestment from the fossil fuel industry.
Radicalized students, faculty, and officials at universities across the country are demanding administrators divest school endowments from profitable oil companies such as Exxon Mobil, Conoco Phillips, and others.
For instance, students at Vassar College, Swarthmore College, Cornell University, and 260 other universities have called upon their financial administrators to divest from fossil fuels.
Although it is unclear how many of these schools have, or actually will divest, one thing is clear. If schools pursue investment strategies based of the feelings of their most radicalized students, faculty and administrators, the consequences could be disastrous.

Wonderful news – I will pen weekly op-ed columns on Campus Reform Online (CRO)–Leadership Institute’s news publication–each Sunday starting May 19, 2013. For those of you who don’t know, CRO is the #1 source for campus news.
Here’s more about Campus Reform:
