How California’s Colleges Indoctrinate Students

    Peter Berkowitz at Wall Street Journal (via Google) (includes video): The politicization of higher education by activist professors and compliant university administrators deprives students of the opportunity to acquire knowledge and refine their minds. It also erodes the nation’s civic cohesion and its ability to preserve the institutions that undergird democracy in America.

St. Helena parish hires legal expert: Will help craft law on sex businesses | The Advocate

    The Advocate: Bergthold is familiar to Angelina Spencer, the executive director of the Association of Club Executives, an adult-nightclub trade organization. Spencer said local officials are often afraid to go against Bergthold, who has been associated with the Alliance Defense Fund, a conservative, Christian legal group. “He’s very successful because it’s political suicide to stand up to him,” Spencer said. Bergthold is “great at getting himself hired as a legal consultant, and then will go in and testify in support of this legislation,” Spencer said. “When clubs challenge this legislation, he becomes the attorney of record.”
