    A group of about 30 students packed up their things and walked out of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's two-hour lecture on Wednesday, joining a planned walkout to protest the school's alleged involvement in publicly sharing the names and photos of students who had joined pro-Hamas protests.

    The lecture, which also featured Dr. Keren Yarhi-Milo, dean of Columbia's School of International and Public Affairs, was meant to address the role of women in the peace process. Approximately 300 students were attending the class prior to the walkout, which took place before the halfway point.

    The students gathered near the International Affairs Building's lobby, claiming that they were there to draw attention to the fact that the names and photos of students had been plastered on the side of a truck - along with the words "Columbia's Leading Antisemites" - and the school had done nothing to prevent the "doxxing." Students claimed that the photos had been pulled from a platform that was supposed to be "private and secure," and suggested that the school could have taken action to prevent them from being displayed.

    Among the students' demands were a promise from the school's administrators to ensure student safety, along with "immediate legal support for affected students."

    Those whose names and photos appeared on the truck were members of campus groups that had signed off on a letter blaming Israel for the terrorist attacks carried out by Hamas on October 7, when they breached the border from Gaza and slaughtered 1,400 Israelis, a large number of them civilians.

    The student protesters reportedly waited in the lobby for the lecture to end, at which point they appeared to prepare for Clinton and Yarhi-Milo to walk by, but The New York Times reported that the duo left through a side door instead.

    Clinton addressed calls for an immediate ceasefire - primarily from the Left - in recent days as well, saying that such an action would only benefit Hamas.

    WATCH:


    "People who are calling for a ceasefire now do not understand Hamas, that is not possible. It would be such a gift to Hamas because they would spend whatever time there was a ceasefire in effect rebuilding their armaments, creating stronger positions to be able to fend off an eventual assault by the Israelis," she said.

    The protest came just one day after Columbia University's president announced that Columbia and Barnard were partnering to form a joint Doxing Resource Group to combat future similar situations.

Considering the deep morass of complete incompetence at the Federal level, in the executive branch of our self-governed People, unarguably the worst in modern times; if certain changes could be made by Impeachment of those most qualified: Who would be your best choice because of abject Corruption, incompetence, or both?

In the minds of many, since January 20, 2021, the World has become far less safe in every theater of conflict, beginning with the attack of Israel by Iran /Hamas, so the question becomes: What caused this Worldwide calamity of extreme geopolitical dysfunction, and what will correct it?
  Joe Biden is the cause of this frightening Worldwide situation, and it will end when a Republican is elected president.
  This delayed Worldwide dysfunction and constant conflict is all Donald Trump's fault, as it is with everything that occurs going forward, and long before the man ever became the 45th president..
  Joe Biden is the "root cause" of this frightening Worldwide situation, and it will end when former President Donald John Trump is elected president.
  In the imitable words of Alfred E. Newman: "What, me worry?"

26 days after the October 7th Terror attacks on Israel, where over 1400 Jewish men, women and children were gruesomely murdered, and hundreds more made hostage: Should the Biden /Harris administration finally state that the administration's primary Middle East negotiating partner, Iran, is behind the funding and strategy of the aggressors, the Hamas Terrorists, or continue to take the more moderate position of "Don't," which is clearly not working?
  Yes, name Iran as the funding /strategy culprit, and begin to enforce the President Trump era sanctions to END Iran's ability to prosecute this war against Israel and the United States.
  No, Iran is a valuable partner in the motives of the Biden / Harris administration, and must not be named as the culprit and our enemy.
  I have larger concerns just to survive in this economy.
