A federal court has ruled in favor of a professor thrown under the bus by his public college after a Muslim student claimed the Islamic terrorism portion of a world politics class violated his Constitutional rights.
The course is offered at Scottsdale Community College (SCC) in Arizona, which is part of the Maricopa County Community College District.
Taught by Nicholas Damask, a popular political science professor, organizes the course into six modules that cover world politics.
One is dedicated to defining and analyzing Islamic terrorism. Students are required to read excerpts from a book called “Future Jihad” written by a Lebanese-born Middle East expert who has worked with the U.S. departments of Justice, Defense and State.
In May, the college publicly chastised him, in response to criticism and death threats he received on social media for quiz questions he wrote that connected Islam to terrorism.
“I apologize, personally, and on behalf of the Maricopa Community Colleges, for the uneven manner in which this was handled and for our lack of full consideration for our professor’s right of academic freedom,” Interim Chancellor Steven R. Gonzales said in a statement. “To avoid rushing to judgment a second time, I am announcing the immediate independent investigation of the facts related to his situation.”
This is just one bit of news exposed by government corruption watchdog Judicial Watch this week.
Here are more results you will not see (or barely mentioned) on mainstream media.
Illinois Illegally Withholds Voter Records
A lawsuit has been filed by Judicial Watch against the state of Illinois, the Illinois State Board of Elections, and its director for failing to allow public access to its voter roll data in violation of the federal National Voter Registration Act of 1993 (NVRA).
State officials refused to allow the non-profit Illinois Conservative Union and three lawfully registered Illinois voters to obtain a copy of the state’s voter registration list, despite their lawful request for those records under federal law.
Judicial Watch filed the lawsuit on their behalf in the United States District Court in the Northern District of Illinois.
“This lawsuit aims to open up Illinois voting records so private groups can tell whether they are dirty,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “Illinois voters and citizens have a right to review election rolls under federal law and Illinois’ refusal to make them available suggests the state knows the rolls are a mess and won’t stand the light of the day.”
Record Number African-American Federal Judges Set by Trump

Mueller Team Illegally Wiped Their Phones
There are now 87 pages of records exposed from the Department of Justice that show senior members of Robert Mueller’s Special Counsel’s Office repeatedly and “accidentally” wiped phones assigned to them.
Proof State Department is Infested With Deep State Operatives
U.S. Department of State has filed a court motion to overturn a court order authorizing additional discovery in the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit that led directly to the 2015 disclosure of former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton’s personal email system.
Their motion seeks to avoid the depositions of Clinton’s former Chief of Staff Cheryl Mills as well as current and former State Department Information Technology Officials Brett Gittleson and Yvette Jacks.
“It is shameful that Judicial Watch still must battle Hillary Clinton, the DOJ, and the State Department in court over the Clinton email scandal,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.
NY Dictator Cuomo Gives Doctors 3 Hours to Comply to His New Mandate
In August, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo actually ordered health care professionals across the state to provide the “full residential address and phone number, occupation and employer name, full work address and employer phone number as well as race and ethnicity” of all patients tested for Covid-19.
A few days ago Cuomo added to his mandates that doctors “collect and report whether a patient attends or works in a school and if so, the name and location of the school. This includes elementary, secondary, and post-secondary/higher education. It is also critical to list the patient’s local address if different from their permanent address.”
Health care providers must report “within three hours” or face civil penalties of up to $2,000 per day.”
Russian Undermined U.S. Policy Through Biden Conflicts of Interest
A newly released email reveals the Obama State Department had a longstanding concern about then-Vice President Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden’s Burisma involvement – and how the Russians were using Biden’s conflicts of interest to undermine U.S. policy.
Did BLM and Washington Mayor Conspire With Feds?
Judicial Watch filed a FOIA lawsuit against the U.S. Department of Transportation for records of communication between the Federal Highway Administration and the District of Columbia’s Department of Transportation.
The lawsuit seeks to obtain information about the painting of “Black Lives Matter” on and the reopening of 16th Street NW near the White House in Washington, DC.
This lawsuit was filed after the Federal Highway Administration failed to respond to an August 19, 2020, FOIA request.
“DC Mayor Bowser shut down a major street near the White House to make a political statement for the BLM/Defund the Police agenda,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “Our lawsuit highlights how and why federal dollars should not be used to subsidize this abuse.”
