A conservative activist brought his message of freedom and small government to Washington State University on Tuesday. Patriot Prayer’s Joey Gibson attended a WSU College Republicans rally on the Terrell Mall. The “Build the Wall” and “Bill of Rights Bash” was a rally for Southern border security and the preservation of the freedoms in the Bill of Rights. Gibson believes Americans need to come together and respect differing views. You can listen to his comment by clicking on the audio file below.
This doesn’t cover the $1million hole from UI Athletics.
And future students need to ask themselves: is this cost of education worth it?
The University of Idaho is seeking a nearly 6% increase in tuition and fees for next year. UI administrators will ask the Idaho State Board of Education on Wednesday to increase tuition and fees by 5.6% for the 2019-20 academic year.
If approved it would increase UI tuition and fees by 440 dollars to about 8,300 dollars next year for in-state undergraduates. The request includes a proposal to double the student fee to help pay for the new campus arena to 60 dollars annually. Revenue from the yet to be approved student fee increase is already in the financing package for the Idaho Central Credit Union Arena that was approved by the board last month.
The UI’s requested tuition hikes have been deemed too expensive by the board for the last 3 years. Last year the UI asked for a 6% increase and received a 5% hike. If this request is approved it would continue to make the UI the most expensive public higher education institution in Idaho.
Wednesday’s board meeting starts at 11:00 in the Pitman Center at the UI.
They’ll have to raise tuition to cover these expenses.
Oh, wait, they already did that for something else…
University of Idaho Athletics ended the last fiscal with a deficit of over a million dollars. The Idaho State Board of Education will receive a report on Vandal Athletics fiscal year 2018 finances during its meeting this week.
The department ended the last fiscal year on June 30th with a deficit of over 1.1 million dollars. That’s the largest athletics deficit among Idaho’s four-year public higher education institutions.
The report to the board includes a comment from staff that state funds are critical for athletics. The report states that traditional revenues like ticket sales and donations aren’t enough to make athletic programs self-supporting. Staff notes that if state dollars were removed from athletics every department in the State of Idaho would have had a deficit last year. Without state support in fiscal year 2018 the deficit for UI Athletics would have reached 5.5 million dollars. Vandal Athletics spending in 2018 topped 21.5 million dollars while revenues, including state support, reached just under 20.5 million dollars.
The report will be presented to the board during its meeting on Thursday inside the Pitman Center at the UI.
Instead of bringing Central and South American socialism practices to the US, how about you take our capitalism south?
“We don’t have another option, but to migrate and if President Trump is not happy, well then, we don’t have another option… in our countries we don’t have any support. We see that on this side it’s better, so everyone heads this way. We think that Trump’s heart will have to soften, because we have needs in our countries.” — Oscar Romero, Honduran migrant
[Judicial Watch] is looking to obtain all communications and payments made to the author of the anti-Trump dossier — Christopher Steele.
The former British intelligence officer was funded by the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee in order to compile his 35 page document.
Judicial Watch is now trying to determine the FBI’s involvement.

After it was revealed that Bernie Sanders only gave a very small percentage of his considerable wealth to charity upon release of his tax returns, socialist Bernie Sanders vowed to do better, promising to be more generous with your money in the future.
What I find fascinating is that the political climate in D.C. is such that Pelosi (herself a rabid liberal) feels the need to criticize AOC.
Pelosi said if the left hopes to keep up its advantage in Congress then it needs to focus less on winning seats in historically Democrat districts. She continued, saying a glass of water could win an election in districts like Ocasio-Cortez’s.
We have entered a new phase when black females are attacked for being conservative.
A college campus event hosted by conservative activist Candace Owens is the latest scene of Antifa harassment.
Owens arrived at the University of Pennsylvania Monday to far-left protesters aggressively shouting her down.
Antifa is here!! Enjoy this video of the neo-KKK stalking and harassing me as I try to invite a group of peaceful black students into my event at UPENN. The Democrat’s domestic terrorist arm strike again!
She was invited to speak at the campus by the school’s Republican organization. In the days leading up to the event, Antifa members threatened to harass Owens and throw things at her.
Hitler admiring, far-right, anti-immigrant fear monger Candace Owens brings her outrageously wrong and backwards 'ideology' to UPenn on Monday, for real y'all are an Ivy League School? Y'all should have that revoked. https://t.co/NwvDZ5yBnO
