Nicole Neily, the founder of Speech First, says she brought a similar case against the University of Texas in December and another suit is forthcoming.
“Sadly, there are many problems,” she says.
So credit the president for shining a light on a very real problem. But that’s where his involvement should end.
“There are terrible environments at many schools, but there are huge dangers that go with any federal effort to police expression,” says Neal McCluskey, director of the Cato Institute’s Center for Educational Freedom.
Okay, I just got back from a weekend with the family and I’m catching up on some correspondence when I came upon this in my inbox from the We Build The Wall organizers over the weekend:
This is Brian Kolfage. I want to make sure you all are aware that we moved our venue to Cobo Center.
Two reasons why. We outgrew the Warren location by a long shot. We aren’t sure how many 1000’s are showing up so we need to be prepared.
Secondly, security. We need command and control of this event and the venue Cobo Center offers this security for our guests.
With onsite secure parking, and onsite security who is trained to deal with these functions they are highly competent. Furthermore, we have 18 on duty Detroit Police Officers dedicated to working out event.
With all these steps taken we believe security of our guests and speakers to be priority and have mitigated any mishaps from protestors who will not be permitted in the venue or building.
This is going to be an awesome event for everyone and want to ensure it’s safe and secure for you and your friends.
Thank you for understanding! I hope to see you there!
While I’m glad at the outpouring of support for this event which apparently has more Conservatives backing it, than who attended last months GOP State Convention (how sad is that), I’ve got to chime in a several items regarding this Thursday’s event.
With all due respect to Mr. Kolfage, if anyone thinks that they’ve got the agitators under control…you don’t.
Yes, you can “secure” Cobo Hall and keep them at bay.
No, you cannot keep them from harassing attendees entering or exiting Cobo, or worse yet, vandalizing property. The Cobo Parking lots CANNOT be secured. Not only is it a public parking lot, it’s just far too big to effectively patrol.
Making matters worse, my sources have tipped me off that they are already aware of the new venue and are already planning for it. Unfortunately, that’s all I have at the moment.
This IS NOT meant to warn people away.
Just the opposite. I want to see as many people as possible at Cobo this Thursday. I especially want to see them arrive and leave as safely as possible for what should be a memorable evening (in a good way).
I would just want to make a friendly warning for attendees to locate other parking options around Downtown Detroit. There are many within walking distance of Cobo, and this is one of the rare times when I’ll advocate using it, take the People Mover to get to and from Cobo.
So to wrap things up, The We Build The Wall Michigan Town Hall will NOW be held at Cobo Hall in Downtown Detroit in Hall “B” from 7:00pm to 8:30pm
And from The We Build The Wall event page:
DOORS OPEN AT 5:30PM SHARP AT COBO CENTER
NEED GOVERNMENT ID MATCHING TICKET TO GAIN ENTRANCE
To ensure the safety and security of all guests, we respectfully request that attendees refrain from bringing back packs or any other personal bags or luggage. Upon arrival you will be subject to a security check prior to entry which will include metal detecting wands and a possible pat down in the event the wand detects metal of any kind.
Again, I’m not trying to scare anyone away. Forewarned and forearmed…that sort of thing.
Whitmer unveiled her first budget proposal on Tuesday, March 5, and her proposals for a higher gas tax and a significant education funding increase got most of the attention.
But included in the spending plan was $15 million for a Flint reserve fund and $8.1 million in funding for existing programs addressing the Flint water crisis.
What surrounding communities need to do is mismanage their affairs and become totally irresponsible in their decision making as this is the new pathway to financial reward.

Ps. Stamas, you’re still an incorrigible reprobate.
Michiganians drive an average of 14,121 miles per year, according to the Federal Highway Administration. The average vehicle fuel economy for 2017 model-year vehicles was 24.9 miles per gallon, according to Environmental Protection Agency figures released Wednesday.
Do the math, and a 45-cent surcharge would add up to that $255 per year. That’s on top of the average current fuel bill of $1,389, assuming gasoline stays at the current $2.45 per gallon average price around the state.
Are the Envirotard dopes who are government subsidized in the purchase and, charging of driving their glorified golf carts around off the hook?
Well, that didn’t take long to cast sunlight upon the Progressive Left’s wealth redistribution scheme.
If approved by the Republican-controlled House and Senate, Whitmer’s proposed 45-cent motor fuel tax increase would occur in three separate 15 cent tax hikes on Oct. 1, 2019, April 1, 2020, and Oct. 1, 2020.
The first two tax hikes would increase the tax by 30 cents and bring in an additional $1.26 billion during the 2019-20 fiscal year. But documents submitted by Whitmer as part of her executive budget recommendation on Tuesday indicate that the net increase to transportation funding will be just $764 million in 2019-20 fiscal year.
In other words, $499.2 million — an estimated 40 percent of the $1.26 billion gas tax increase in 2020 — would not go to roads. Instead, it would replace current transportation budget dollars that would be redirected to pay for other state government spending.
