- Oberlin College has been hit with $4 million in interest fees for refusing to pay the $36 million it owes to a family-run bakery
- Gibson's Bakery in Oberlin, Ohio is struggling to survive after Oberlin College students and faculty member Meredith Raimondo accused its staff of racism
- Despite the allegations being proven false, students continue to boycott
- The 137 year-old bakery continues to struggle financially because of the incident
- Owner Allyn Gibson and his son, David Gibson, have since passed while the family awaits a $33million settlement from Oberlin College
Oberlin College was last month told it must pay the additional fee - equivalent to around $4,000-a-day for each of the 1,000 days it has refused to pony up - to Gibson's Bakery, The Chronicle reported.
College led by one of its disgraced ex-deans, Meredith Raimondo, lied
that the bakery's staff had racially-profiled three black students in
2016, despite the trio later admitting shoplifting.
But Oberlin has refused to pay up, and asked for another stay in paying the Gibsons what they're owed because of a pending appeal against the ruling against them.
That appeal is set to be heard by the Ohio Supreme Court, after two lower courts rejected Oberlin's attempts to slither out of paying the Gibsons.
Lawyers for the Gibson family say Oberlin failed to file the correct paperwork to justify their latest delaying tactic, and must pay up. The legal stalemate continues for now.
Gibson family, who owns the 137 year-old bakery, won damages after a
jury found they suffered horrific stress as a result of Oberlin's lies
and involvement in the boycotting of the business.

- Democratic Rep. Keith Ellison, deputy DNC chair, claimed on Sunday that he hasn’t met with Farrakhan since crossing paths with him at two 2013 meetings
- Ellison, a former Nation of Islam member, claimed for years that he cut all ties to Farrakhan since running for Congress in 2006
- Ellison disputed Farrakhan’s account that he and Indiana Rep. Andre Carson visited the hate group leader in his hotel room in 2015
- Carson has already confirmed his own presence at the 2015 meeting
fire over his ties to Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan,
Democratic Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison claimed Sunday that he hasn’t
attended any meetings with Farrakhan since 2013 and “never had” a
relationship with him.
Farrakhan is a notorious
anti-Semite and racist whose organization teaches that white people are
inherently inferior to black people. Ellison, the deputy chair of the
Democratic National Committee (DNC), is a former Nation of Islam member
who claimed when he first ran for Congress in 2006 that he had left
Farrakhan in his past.
New reporting has shown, however, that Ellison attended multiple meetings with Farrakhan while
in Congress. That includes a private visit to Farrakhan’s hotel room in
2015 with Democratic Indiana Rep. Andre Carson. Farrakhan referenced
the meeting in a December 2016 Facebook video, and Carson has confirmed
that he was present. When CNN’s Wolf Blitzer asked Ellison about that
meeting, the congressman did not deny that the meeting took place but instead lashed out at his critics.
Ellison lashed out at his critics again in a blog post on Sunday,
claiming that he never had a relationship with Farrakhan and hasn’t met
him since 2013, apparently contradicting Farrakhan and Carson’s
accounts. Ellison did confirm his presence at two Farrakhan meetings
that took place in 2013. Ellison claimed questions about his Farrakhan
ties are “a smear by factions on the right who want to pit the Jewish
community and the Black community against each other.”
do not have and have never had a relationship with Mr. Farrakhan, but I
have been in the same room as him,” Ellison wrote. “About a decade ago,
he and I had a brief, chance encounter in Washington, D.C. In 2013, I
attended a meeting in New York City with Iranian President Hassan
Rouhani and nearly 50 others where I advocated for the release of an
American political prisoner. I didn’t know Mr. Farrakhan would be there
and did not speak to him at the event. Contrary to recent reports, I
have not been in any meeting with him since then, and he and I have no
communication of any kind.”
"But as the attacks on me and my fellow Black representatives in Congress intensify, I want to be clear: this is a smear by factions on the right who want to pit the Jewish community and the Black community against each other, and distract from the hatred and bigotry on display by the president and the white supremacists who stormed Charlottesville this summer with their anti-Semitic chants and Confederate flags. I declined to dignify questions raised about Mr. Farrakhan because I know they are inherently political, and are designed to separate me from people who I work with every day on issues of importance for Americans of all backgrounds,” Ellison continued.
critics will not be satisfied. They won’t be satisfied any more than
President Obama’s production of his birth documents satisfied his
critics, or Hillary Clinton’s eleven-hour testimony before the House
Select Committee on Benghazi sated her detractors,” he added. Ellison’s
blog post comes as he is increasingly under fire over his ties to
The Washington Post awarded Ellison “Four Pinocchios,” their worst possible rating, for claiming that his relationship with Farrakhan ended in 2006. The post cited The Daily Caller’s reporting in the fact-check.
Democratic Illinois Rep. Danny Davis, who has repeatedly praised Farrakhan, compared Ellison’s relationship to Farrakhan to a fallen-away Christian’s relationship to Jesus in an interview with The Daily Caller News Foundation earlier this month.
“I don’t know that
Keith knows Farrakhan as well as I do — in fact, I know he doesn’t,”
Davis said. “I don’t think that Keith is no person who is super engaged
with Farrakhan, he just happens to be a movement. Just like many of the
folks who are Christians, they’re not super engaged with Jesus, but they
say they Christians,” Davis said.
Women’s March organization, a prominent left-wing activist group, has come under fire as well after their leaders expressed support for Farrakhan. The group’s co-president, Tamika Mallory, attended Farrakhan’s annual Saviour’s Day speech last month where he railed against Jews and white people. Mallory defended Farrakhan after suffering backlash by implying that religious leaders are supposed to consider Jews their enemies. “If your leader does not have the same enemies as Jesus, they may not be THE leader!” Mallory wrote on Twitter. She has repeatedly declined to condemn Farrakhan.
Women’s March has lost supporters over the Farrakhan scandal, and several regional chapters have slammed the national organization for refusing to denounce him. The group’s social media director, Alyssa Klein, resigned over the group’s support for Farrakhan, the New York Post reports.

Clint Eastwood’s new movie, “The 15:17 to Paris,”
is based on true events, where three American heroes stopped a
terrorist on a Paris train in 2015, and it is causing the Hollywood
crowd to go nuts. They just tried to put the kibosh on certain scenes
that didn’t fit their liberal agenda, and boy, that made Eastwood mad.
So, the famous actor and director who voted for President Donald Trump
just slapped the leftists hard with a brutal surprise. You’re going to
Eastwood is an American icon and is probably the most famous
conservative actor and director in Hollywood. Eastwood’s legendary work
affords him the ability to pick and chose what type of movies he’ll
make, and he loves making patriotic American movies.
The summary adds, “Throughout the harrowing ordeal, their friendship never wavers, making it their greatest weapon and allowing them to save the lives of the more than 500 passengers on board. The heroic trio is comprised of Anthony Sadler, Oregon National Guardsman Alek Skarlatos, and U.S. Air Force Airman First Class Spencer Stone, who play themselves in the film.”
The movie stirs real patriotic emotion and honors the three American heroes who have military backgrounds. It shows an Islamic terrorist, who gains entry into France as a migrant, attempting to slaughter 500 people, with three Americans stopping him. This just isn’t the type of movie the Hollywood crowd makes, and they tried to screw Eastwood by giving it an “R” rating.
The reason they gave for the “R” rating was it showed “violence,” and this pissed off Clint Eastwood, who is making this film so teens could also see a movie with real American values. It was a cheap shot by the liberal Hollywood idiots, and Eastwood decided that wasn’t going to happen. The legendary star shocked the Hollywood crowd by taking on the rating board himself, something that never happens. And, not only did he take them on, he blew them away.
“Clint Eastwood has won an appeal to overturn the R rating originally assigned to his upcoming film, The 15:17 to Paris. Instead, it will be rated PG-13. According to a source, the R rating was given for the train attack scene at the center of the film, which the Classification and Rating Administration described as ‘a sequence of violence and bloody images,’” reported Hollywood Reporter.
Clint doesn’t just play a “tough guy” in his movies, he showed those Hollywood snakes that he really is a tough guy who won’t be pushed around. He’ll make any d__ movie he wants to make, and they won’t stop him from making sure as many Americans as possible can see it.
Well, let the haters hate. They loathe patriotism and they despise middle-class working Americans who love this country. They can’t stand Clint Eastwood who said that former President Barack Obama is “the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people.”
Lastly, what in the hell is wrong with sending the message to teens that
they too can be heroes? What is wrong with giving some kids the idea
that joining the military is a heroic thing to do? This is exactly the
kind of movie our young people need to see in today’s world that is
filled with idiot celebrities pushing anti-American messages. If this
movie inspires just one young American to join the military and make
their life worthwhile, then Clint Eastwood’s film will be a resounding
