Student Mentions Concealed Carry in Conversation, Police Pay a Visit to her in Class, What Happened Next is Outrageous

This is getting out of control.

A junior at Kent State University is claiming that she was wrongfully detained by campus police after other students at the school overheard her mention her concealed carry permit during a phone conversation.

Leandra Westbrook, who is studying political science, recently spoke with Campus Reform where she said that during a phone conversation with a friend on April 27, she mentioned: “how it is a shame that I cannot carry a gun on campus, considering I have my carry license.”

Some student cadet officers were none too happy to hear such a sentiment coming from the obviously pro-Second Amendment junior, so they took it upon themselves to tattle to campus police about her around noon that same day.

Then, just as Westbrook was about to begin a quiz in her anatomy class, in walked campus law enforcement officers, who removed her from the class — in front of 200 other students — and searched her.

Though Westbrook understands that the officers were “just doing their jobs,” she maintains that that the student cadets reported her in bad faith.

“I do not believe they genuinely thought I was a threat, because I specifically said I had a license to carry,” Westbrook told Campus Reform. “In the conversation I had, there was no way to misinterpret what I said, or to even suggest that I had a gun with me.”

She noted that she “would not be surprised if the student cadet who reported me was targeting me for being pro-Second Amendment,” adding that she’s historically faced harassment and vague threats from her peers due to her conservative beliefs.

Westbrook stated that she was “too shaken up and disturbed to return back to class” after the incident occurred. A few days later she met with the Dean of Students to inform him of the harassment she received.

As you might expect from the indoctrination centers we call “college campuses,” the dean told her there’s nothing that can be done about the incident.

However, Westbrook stated she’s not taking this laying down, as she’s already decided to report the folks who reported her for having a gun to the police for falsifying a report.

The young lady has decided to wait until after finals to make the report so as not to interfere with other students’ schedule.

Hungarian Officials Says Impeachment Witness George Clinton Not Credible. ‘I Was There, He Was Not.’

Published

on

A top Hungarian official recently stated that George Kent is not a credible witness for the impeachment proceedings against President Trump, poking fun at his allegations that Prime Minister Viktor Orban encouraged the president to view Ukraine negatively. Here’s more from Washington Examiner: “This is a great honor for us, to be honest, that we were portrayed as a central European country which can change the position of the president of the United States,” Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto joked in an interview with the Washington Examiner on the sidelines of the NATO Leaders’ Meeting. “It can be taken as an honor. Well, I’m afraid it has distance from reality, to be honest.” Orban emerged as an unlikely player in the Ukraine impeachment controversy in October, when a senior State Department official testified that the Hungarian leader had contributed to Trump’s distaste for Ukraine. George Kent, one of the State Department’s top officials for Europe, told lawmakers that Orban echoed Russian President Vladimir Putin in portraying Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky as in a “thrall” of corruption. “He’s not that credible in this regard,” Szijjarto said of Kent, whom he noted did not attend Orban’s May 13 meeting with Trump. “Simply because he was not there. I was there, he was not there.” “Viktor Orban’s beef with Ukraine is derived in part [from] his vision, in my opinion, of a greater Hungary. This issue of greater Hungary is at the top of Orban’s agenda. And so he has picked this particular issue and, for instance, blocked all meetings in NATO with Ukraine at the ministerial level or above because of this particular issue. So, his animus towards Ukraine is well-known, documented, and has lasted now two years,” Kent continued. Kent then went on to say in his testimony that the Hungarian…

Washington Post Writer Says Journalists Need To Persuade Citizens To Support Trump Impeachment

Published

on

As the day and time draws near for the House of Representatives to vote on articles of impeachment, which are being drafted now, against President Trump, much of what the public thinks about this whole situation hasn’t changed all that much since before the public hearings began. Which is precisely why Washington Post columnist Margaret Sullivan is calling on journalists to try and find better ways to change hearts and minds on the issue and persuade Americans to get on board with booting the president. Here’s more from TheBlaze: “Despite the hardened positions, some members of the public are still uncertain,” Sullivan writes. “Some are persuadable, and yes, it matters. Maybe, just maybe, it’s the job of American journalism in this moment to get serious about trying to reach these citizens.” Sullivan notably does not take an overt position regarding whether people need to be persuaded for or against impeachment. The closest she comes to that is when she writes, “We do live in a country that abides by laws and a Constitution, and nobody ought to be above them.” “And far too often, those [television news] broadcasts fall prey to a false equivalency: This side said this, and this side said that, and we don’t want to make anyone mad, so we’ve got to cut to commercial now,” Sullivan writes. Sullivan speaks against “epistemological nihilism,” a term coined by New York Times columnist Michelle Goldberg to describe the “long-term Republican strategy” of saying that there are no set facts or truth, something stated by House Judiciary Committee ranking member Doug Collins (R-Ga.) during Wednesday’s hearing. So what, exactly, does Sullivan purpose to help win folks over? How about a “movie trailer” kind of approach which takes big chunks of the impeachment narrative and condenses it into a “targeted, well-informed…
