Saudi Arabia Woman Sentenced To Be Stoned To Death . . . Male Lover To Be Given 100 Lashes

2 hours agoNews : Jonathan Turley

We recently discussed the bizarre report that the Saudi Arabian government was going to sue a Twitter user for a tweet where he compared the death sentence given poet Ashraf Fayadh to ISIS executions.

2 days agoNews : Jonathan Turley

I recently raised concerns on PBS Newshour about a lawsuit by Israelis who are suing in the United States to force Facebook to take down violent, anti-Jewish sites. While I believe Facebook can and should take down the sites, the use of the government to close such sites raise serious free speech questions in where […]

“Harvard-Trained Lawyer” Arrested For Fraud In Boston

4 days agoNews : Jonathan Turley

David Corazza, 47, was the very image of the international jet-setting lawyer with postings highlighting his Harvard education, offices in cities around the world, and even photos with Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler. The problem is that this Harvard-trained lawyer was neither a graduate of Harvard or a lawyer. Indeed, he does not even appear to be […]

5 days agoNews : Jonathan Turley

We have another outrage against women in Afghanistan where Shirin Gul, 26, was reportedly flogged to death in the Shahrak district of Ghor after being accused of running away from home.

University of Ottawa Students Pull The Mat On Yoga Classes As “Cultural Appropriation”

5 days agoNews : Jonathan Turley

I have been writing a great deal about my concern over the erosion of free speech on our campuses. Part of the problem is that I sometimes have a difficult time even understanding the objection to some forms of speech or association as in the ever-widening range of things deemed “micro aggressions.” The latest such […]
