This is America today: 62% of Americans conceal their political views out of fear

How many of you have experienced what I have? — You’re in a small social gathering. Someone in your group begins ranting about Trump or some other conservative politician or policy, as if everyone in the group is in agreement.

I have never had the experience of a conservative doing that, have you?

Our personal experiences are now confirmed by a July Cato Institute survey that found that Americans increasingly are self-censoring.

Whereas in 2017, 58% of Americans said they concealed their political views, today nearly two-thirds of Americans—62%—say the political climate these days prevents them from saying things they believe because others might find them offensive.

Although conservatives are more prone to self-censorship as you would expect, the phenomenon actually crosses partisan lines, with majorities of Democrats (52%), independents (59%) and Republicans (77%) all saying they have political opinions they are afraid to share.

But it’s not all Democrats.

It’s the bullies, whom Cato Institute calls “strong” or “staunch liberals,” who are the only political group who feel they can say what they believe. Nearly 6 in 10 (58%) of “staunch liberals” feel they can freely voice their opinions, whereas a slim majority (52%) of centrist liberals feel they have to self-censor — an increase of 7% from 2017. This points to the increasing radicalization of some Democrats, who are intimidating even fellow Democrats.

But centrist liberals still have it easy compared to others: 64% of political moderates and nearly 8 of every 10 (77%) conservatives self-censor.

Self‐​censorship is widespread across demographic groups as well. Below are the percentages of each group who self-censor:

  • Race: 65% of Latinos, 64% of Whites, 49% of Blacks.
  • Gender: 65% of men, 59% of women.
  • Income: 60% of incomes over $100,000, 58% of peoople with incomes less than $20,000.
  • Age: 66% of people over 65, 55% of people under 35.
  • Religion: 71% of religious, 56% of non‐​religious.

I was surprised by more men than women engaging in self-censorship.

My interpretation of the smaller percentages of women, blacks, youth, poor, and atheists (or non-religous) who self-censor is that they are probably “staunch liberals” — radical leftists who feel and in fact do freely express their opinions and beliefs, and bully/intimidate/harass others into silence.

Methodology: The Cato Institute Summer 2020 National Survey was designed and conducted by the Cato Institute in collaboration with YouGov. YouGov collected responses online during July 1–6, 2020 from a national sample of 2,000 Americans 18 years of age and older. Restrictions are put in place to ensure that only the people selected and contacted by YouGov are allowed to participate. The margin of error for the survey is +/- 2.36 percentage points at the 95% level of confidence.

Majority of donations to Biden and Democrat PAC from untraceable suspect ‘unemployed’ people

Hollie McKay reports for Fox News, Sept. 13, 2020, that Take Back Action Fund (TBAF), a conservative nonprofit political group, is raising “serious concerns” about millions of donations reported by a major Democratic fundraising platform.

A computer analysis by TBAF found that nearly half of all 2019 donations (48.4%) and a little over half of January-August 2020 donations (50.1%) to Democrat PAC ActBlue were made by people claiming to be unemployed and not having an employer.

In contrast, TBAF found that only 4% of 2019 donations and 5.6% of the Jan.-August 2020 donations to the Republican Party’s fundraising platform WinRed came from people who did not list an employer or were unemployed. WinRed was created last year to counter ActBlue.

The contrast between donations to Biden vs. those to Trump is even starker. Whereas, 49.6% of donations to Biden came from the “unemployed”, only 2.6% of donations to Trump were from the allegedly “unemployed”.

TBAF President John Pudner explains why the large number of donations from “unemployed” people is a red flag that they may be illicit contributions (“straw donors”) from foreign interests attempting to influence U.S. elections:

“The name of employers must be disclosed when making political donations, but more than 4.7 million donations [to ActBlue in 2019] came from people who claimed they did not have an employer. Those 4.7 million donations totaled $346 million ActBlue raised and sent to liberal causes. It is hard to believe that at a time when the U.S. unemployment rate was less than 4 percent, that unemployed people had $346 million dollars to send to ActBlue for liberal causes. 4.7 million donations from people without a job … raised serious concerns.”

In response to questions by Fox News, a representative for ActBlue refused to share information about how they analyze contributions, and insisted that “we use an array of data sources, internal validation and third-party services to verify the validity of transactions,” and that many of its donations came from retirees and people who aren’t counted as employed, such as homemakers.

Blah, blah, blah.

ActBlue, created in 2004, bills itself as a “powerful online fundraising platform available to Democratic candidates and committees, progressive organizations, and nonprofits that share our values for no cost besides a 3.95% processing fee on donations. And we operate as a conduit, which means donations made through ActBlue to a campaign or organization are considered individual donations.

But the ActBlue website allows credit card donations that are not verified, so anyone from any country in the world can donate without a paper trail.

In fact, the issue of unauthenticated political donations via allowing donors to use largely untraceable prepaid credit cards which could be used to mask a donor’s identity, and to evade limits on how much an individual is legally allowed to give was also brought to light by The Washington Post in 2008.

Pudner said: “ActBlue‘s insistence on refusing to allow banks to verify their donations is an invitation to foreign programmers or others to send money through them using fake American names, and we encourage them to start letting banks verify the identity of donors to stop the potential for millions of dollars to influence our election. We found it took other vendors only a matter of hours to switch their system to allow verification of donations and thus prevent the possibility of illegal foreign money being moved into campaigns. Choosing to use an untraceable system has a higher cost in terms of the risk of credit card fraud and also tends to incur higher bank fees. And this untraceable system allows someone with a gift card to make donations in anyone’s name, even if that person never actually made that donation, or even if that person doesn’t exist at all.

Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe told Fox News that “China poses a greater national security threat to the U.S. than any other nation. That includes threats of election influence and interference.” On August 19, 2020, the daily newspaper Global Times, which is a mouthpiece of the Chinese Communist Party, endorsed Joe Biden for President. (Gateway Pundit)

Why 63% disapproval of Portland’s radical left mayor Ted Wheeler is bad news for conservatives

Portland, Oregon has now had more than 100 consecutive nights of violent mayhem by Antifa and BLM anarchists and thugs.

Portland mayor Ted Wheeler

Portland’s mayor, 58-year-old Edward Tevis “Ted” Wheeler, boasts higher-educational credentials of a B.A. in economics from Stanford University, a Master’s in business administration from Columbia University, and a Master’s in public policy from Harvard University.

The epitome of so-called “white privilege”, Wheeler is a 6th-generation Oregonian, born to and heir of a conservative wealthy family who made their fortune in the timber industry. Wheeler worked in the financial services industry for corporations including Bank of America and Copper Mountain Trust before entering politics in 2006 as a registered Republican when he was elected Multnomah, OR county commissioner.

In 2010, he was appointed State Treasurer by Oregon’s Democrat governor Ted Kulongoski. Later that year, Wheeler switched party and won the Democrat primary for Treasurer; in 2013, he was elected Treasurer in a special election. Three years later, in 2016, Wheeler was elected mayor of Portland with 54% of the vote.

George Floyd protests began in Portland on May 28, 2020. Initially peaceful, the protests turned into a riot two days later on May 30. Despite that, on June 9, Wheeler proposed the defunding of three Portland police units, including the gun violence reduction team; the “diversion” of $12 million from the police bureau and other city departments to support “communities of color”; and banning officers from using chokeholds. On June 17, the Portland city council defunded the city police by cutting at least $15 million from the police department and eliminating 84 positions.

In early July, the federal government deployed law enforcement officers to Portland for the stated purpose of protecting federal property, including the U.S. courthouse that repeatedly had been vandalized since June. The federal officers made arrests and fired pepper spray or tear gas at protesters who got too close to the courthouse. Ted Wheeler and Oregon’s Demonrat governor Kate Brown denounced President Trump’s deployment of federal officers to protect federal property in Portland.

On August 28, Wheeler wrote an open letter to President Trump asking him not to send the National Guard to the city, saying that “We don’t need your politics of division and demagoguery.” This, despite the fact that a year ago in August 2019, Wheeler had requested that the National Guard be on standby in anticipation of a potentially explosive stand-off between Antifa demonstrators and “far-right” groups. Gov. Brown denied Wheeler’s request.

On September 1, 2020, after Antifa rioters attacked, vandalized and burned a fire in the apartment building in which Wheeler has a condo, he said he would move out “for the safety” of the apartment’s residents.

Here on Fellowship of the Minds, we have wondered why Portland residents are tolerating the continuous, unceasing nightly riots and mayhem — of arson, vandalism, looting, toppling of statues, assaults, and the shooting death of a Trump supporter. Some of us speculate that Portlanders are not doing anything about the continuous riots because they fear being targeted and attacked.

But their silence and do-nothing do not mean approval.

Everton Bailey Jr. reports for Oregon Live, Sept. 8, 2020, that two months ahead of the November 3 election (and Wheeler’s reelection), a new poll shows that 63% or two-thirds of likely Portland voters have an “unfavorable” impression of mayor Ted Wheeler.

That finding has been trumpeted by conservatives, including talk radio titan Rush Limbaugh, as a sign that the tides are turning.

But is it?

My reaction to the poll is one of incredulity . Only two-thirds of Portlanders disapprove of their mayor? That means as many as a third of Portland voters actually approve of Wheeler’s handling of the continuous riots?

Here are some other findings of the phone and online poll of 435 “likely” Portland voters, conducted by California-based FM3 Research, which indicate that Portlanders haven’t really changed:

  • Only a little more than half (59%) believe Portland is heading in the wrong direction.
  • 76% view the Marxist Black Lives Matter favorably; 22% unfavorable.
  • 92% support “non-violent protests”, but as many as 67% are in favor of “these protests” — i.e., the ongoing mayhem.
  • A majority of Portlanders believe there is a systemic problem in the city’s policing system. 70% said they would vote for a November ballot measure to create a new community-driven independent police oversight system, whatever that means. Not surprisingly, there is a partisan divide on the the ballot measure, with 90% of Democrats and 60% of Independents supporting the measure, whereas 78% of conservatives and 70% of Republicanas are against it. Alas, conservatives make up a small portion of the Portland electorate.

Why the polls are wrong again: As in 2016, Trump supporters are not divulging their vote intentions

The polls leading up to the 2016 presidential elections showed Hillary Clinton winning, but the polls turned out, happily, to be wrong.

Democrats, who had believed the polls, were outraged.

To this day, Demonrats are in denial, having convinced themselves that their candidate lost because Trump had colluded with those dastardly Russians — for which, after a two-year exhaustive FBI investigation that cost taxpayers millions of dollars, there is zero evidence.

None. Nada. Zilch.

Of course, that hasn’t stopped Demonrats in repeating the fake Russian collusion story because of their “I’ve made up my mind! Don’t confuse me with facts!” psychopathology.

Well, the signs are pointing to the polls being wrong again in the 2020 election.

Although polls after the Democrat and Republican party conventions show that Joe Biden still has a four-point lead over Trump, this is why those polls are wrong: Many Trump supporters simply are not telling people for whom they’ll vote on November 3.

On September 3 and 6, 2020, Rasmussen Reports conducted a national phone and online survey of 1,000 likely voters, with a +/- 3 margin of sampling error and a 95% level of confidence.

The survey found that:

  • As many as 17% of those who Strongly Approve of the job President Trump is doing say they are less likely to let others know how they intend to vote in the upcoming election. In contrast, only 8% who those who Strongly Disapprove of the president’s performance say they won’t tell others how they’ll vote.
  • Not surprisingly, Republicans are less likely than Democrats to tell others how they intend to vote: 16% of Republicans vs. 12% of Democrats.
  • Independents, i.e., those not affiliated with either major political party, are even more inclined to keep secret for whom they’ll vote — 21%.
  • Liberals are more likely to talk up their vote than moderates and conservatives are.
  • Blacks and other minority voters are less likely than whites this election cycle to tell others how they plan to vote.
  • Republicans are more enthusiastic about the election (which means they are more likely to turn out to vote).

In the 2016 election, Trump supporters also were less likely to divulge how they intended to vote. At this same time in the 2016 election cycle, Rasmussen found that:

  • 17% of Likely Republican Voters were less likely to let others know how they intend to vote compared to previous presidential campaigns. In contrast, just 10% of Likely Democratic Voters said they were less likely to tell.
  • 25% of Independents said they were less likely to say publicly which presidential candidate they will vote.

Why Democrats hate the flag: Seeing even a small American flag can make you vote Republican

This why “Progressives”, including “woke” corporations like the NFL, are allergic to the American flag and the national anthem.

A study found that just seeing even a small American flag one time shifted both Democrats and Republicans toward the Republican end of the ideological spectrum in beliefs, attitudes, as well as voting intentions and behavior.

The study, “A Single Exposure to the American Flag Shifts Support Toward Republicanism up to 8 Months Later,” by Travis J. Carter (University of Chicago), Melissa J. Ferguson (Cornell University) and Ran R. Hassin (Hebrew University) was published in Psychological Science on July 8, 2011.

Here is the Abstract:

We report that a brief exposure to the American flag led to a shift toward Republican beliefs, attitudes, and voting behavior among both Republican and Democratic participants, despite their overwhelming belief that exposure to the flag would not influence their behavior. In Experiment 1, which was conducted online during the 2008 U.S. presidential election, a single exposure to an American flag resulted in a significant increase in participants’ Republican voting intentions, voting behavior, political beliefs, and implicit and explicit attitudes, with some effects lasting 8 months after the exposure to the prime. In Experiment 2, we replicated the findings more than a year into the current Democratic presidential term. These results constitute the first evidence that nonconscious priming effects from exposure to a national flag can bias the citizenry toward one political party and can have considerable durability.

Ed Yong of Discover magazine has more details on the study.

Experiment #1:

  • In the run-up to the 2008 US presidential election, a group of around 200 volunteers were asked them about their political views.
  • A month or so later, the volunteers were divided into two groups that were comparable in their political beliefs, voting intentions and other variables.
  • Both groups rated how likely they were to vote for either the Democrat Barack Obama or the Republican John McCain on an online questionnaire.
  • The questionnaires were identical except for one small detail – in the top left corner of the screen, one group saw a small American flag and the other saw nothing.
  • That tiny difference was enough to swing their voting preferences. Those who saw the tiny flag became more likely to vote for McCain than Obama (relative to their answers at the start of the experiment); felt more positive towards Republicans; and showed a small Republican bias in their unconscious atittudes.
  •  After the election, the volunteers were asked whom they actually voted for. Those who saw the flag were less likely to have voted for Obama than those who didn’t (73% versus 84%). They were also more likely to think that the media were unduly harsh in their treatment of McCain.
  • The flag effect lasted for at least 8 months. In July 2009, eight months after the experiment, participants who saw the tiny flag on-screen still showed some Republican bias. They were less happy about Obama’s job performance than their peers, less warm about other Democrat leaders, and even held slightly more conservative views.

Experiment #2:

  • In spring of 2010, with Obama a year in power, a new group of 70 volunteers were asked to look at four photographs. Half the people saw buildings with flags in front of them; the others saw photos where the flags had been digitally removed.
  • Even though the two groups had the same spectrum of political beliefs beforehand, the flag group shifted towards a Republican worldview after seeing the photos.

Now you know why the Left — Democrats, Progressives, woke capitalists, the media — are allergic and downright hostile to the American flag, national anthem, statues of the Founding Fathers, and patriotism in general.

The video the MSM doesn’t want you to see, RITTENHOUSE

Kyle Rittenhouse cleaning graffiti left by vandals

Only the fascist left domestic terrorist supporting democrat controlled propaganda fake news would stoop so low to attack a law abiding 17 year old American patriot.  Instead of being truthful and saying Kyle Rittenhouse defended himself, they chose to blow smoke up everyone on this planet’s  a$%’s.

 

“The teenager with the long gun scuffled with people near a car dealership and opened fire, allegedly killing two people and wounding a third, a criminal complaint says. Even as police and emergency vehicles raced to the scene and chaotic videos of the fatal encounter appeared on social media, the armed suspect walked past a group of officers unnoticed. He was arrested 30 miles awayin Antioch, Illinois.”

Faith Karimi, CNN

That’s how fake news CNN is spinning a Kenosha shooting where 3 democrat supported adult fascist left domestic terrorist were shot when they attacked a minor, 17 year old Kyle Rittenhouse.

Rittenhouse was 1 of many volunteers that were cleared by law enforcement and were protecting  businesses from being destoyed by democrat supported fascists left domestic terrorist Black Lives Matter(BLM)/Antifa, Muslim Extremists and foreign nationals that have entered the country illegally and are working with BLM causing discourse,  attacking Americans and trying to influence our elections.

 

The defenders stopped the terrorist from burning down a gas station.  They also stopped the terrorist from attacking the police with a flaming dumpster.

The terrorist next move was to set the car lot on fire where Rittenhouse was standing guard.

Video shows convicted felon sex offender terrorist Joseph Rosenbaum, 36, chasing Rittenhouse through the car lot.  Rosenbaum can be seen throwing a molotov(claims eyewitness) at Rittenhouse. We hear a gunshot from unknown source .Rittonhouse turns and shoots seconds before Rosenbaum could grab him.  Rosenbaum goes down and we hear more gunfire from unknown source again.

Rittonhouse goes over to where Rosenbaum is laying and offers help. He calls the police.

A person then decides to use his shirt instead of the first aid kit Rittenhouse was carrying.  The same person tells Rittenhouse to go.away.

Rittenhouse starts making his way to the police line and a mob of domestic terrorist start chasing him.   He trips an falls.  While on the ground a unidentified terrorist runs up and kicks him in the head.  While still on the ground, he gets hit in the head with a skateboard carried by convicted felon and domestic terrorist,  26 year old, Anthony Huber.  Rittenhouse takes the skateboard hit and shoots Huber.

Then convicted felon and domestic  terrorist, 26 year old

Gaige Grosskreutz, armed with a handgun goes after Rittenhouse.  Grosskreutz raises his gun and Rittenhoust shoots him in the arm.

Rittenhouse makes his way to the police where he turns himself in.

Police let him go.

Currently charges have been filed on Rittenhouse which if convicted, could give him a life sentence.

Charges were filed before any sort of criminal investigation took place.  At the time there wasn’t  a crime scene investigation, no ballistic data, meaning they don’t  know if Rittenhouse was the only shooter. Video clearly shows he shot in self defense.

Besides the fact that these were convicted felons attacking a minor, they were terrorist in the act of committing crimes. They had already helped burn and destroy other buildings in the city.

CNN and other fake news outlets are lying about what really happened.

So you can decide for yourself, I found as many videos of that night that I could find.  I placed them in order creating a visual timeline of events.  Keep in mind that these are the actual videos captured by reporters on the scene. I haven’t  blurred anything out so you will be seeing shooting, blood and bodies.  That’s your warning.

This is for educational  purposes only.

 

Rittenhouse doesn’t look like the mass shooter that some media outlets describe him.

Really makes you wonder why they are lying.

The person that interviewed Rittenhouse was 10 feet away from Rosenbaum when he got shot.  He also helped carry Rosenbaum to the car.  He was also at the hospital with Rosenbaum.  You would think that being a reporter he would have some video from the hospital.  They covered every other part of the event.  This is the reporter,

 

This is a short video of the day after.

Is Rittenhouse a Patriot or not?  I going with Patriot.

I have to be honest.  I feel like I just watched a poorly scripted reality show.  But what do I know.

Correction- Rittenhouse did not call police after first shooting.  He actually called a friend of his.

RINO John Kasich is a turncoat

It is one thing for a Republican to be a RINO: Republican In Name Only.

It is one thing for a RINO to be one of those Never Trumpers.

It’s quite another thing entirely for a Republican RINO to actually go to the other party — the Democrat Party of socialism,  “post-birth abortion” infanticide, and open borders to illegal migrants — by speaking at the 2020 Democratic National Convention.

That is what former Ohio governor John Kasich has declared he will do.

John Kasich, you make me ill.

Shots fired near WH; Trump abruptly ends press conference

Last Thursay, August 6, while speaking to workers at a Whirlpool factory in Clyde, Ohio, President Trump made the following cryptic and very troubling remark:

“So I have a lot of enemies out there. This may be the last time you’ll see me for a while. A lot of very, very rich enemies, but they are not happy with what I’m doing. But I figure we have one chance to do it, and no other President is going to do what I do. No other President would do a favored nations, a rebate, a buy from other nations at much less cost. Nobody. And there are a lot of unhappy people, and they’re very rich people, and they’re very unhappy.”

For more, see my post, “President Trump: ‘This may be the last time you’ll see me for a while“.

I just heard on the Mark Levin radio talk show that just minutes into the President’s coronavirus briefing today, a Secret Service agent whispered into his ear, leading him and other administration officials to abruptly leave the stage.

There is a report that shots were fired near the White House.

Reporters in the James S. Brady Press Briefing Room have been placed into lockdown and Secret Service have surrounded the West Wing.

Pray for President Trump!

Update:

New York Post reports that President Trump returned to the stage just minutes later to confirm someone had been taken to hospital following a shooting outside of the large White House wall. He said:

“It seems that the person was shot by the Secret Service so we’ll see what happens. It was outside of the White House. It seems that the shooting was done by law enforcement at the suspect, it was the suspect who was shot.”

The president said he was not taken into the secure underground bunker but to an area near the Oval Office, and that he did not fear for his safety.

Liberal Intolerance: Marquette U. threatened to rescind admission of student for being pro-Trump

Liberals/Progressives/Democrats claiming to be tolerant is one of the biggest myths, i.e.,  lies, they promote about themselves.

Here’s the latest example of the Left’s intolerance.

Founded by the Society of Jesus (or Jesuits) in 1881, Marquette University is a private  university in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. With a current student body of about 12,000, Marquette is one of the largest Jesuit universities in the United States, and the largest private university in Wisconsin. 

Jackson Walker reports for The College Fix, July 7, 2020, that Marquette University threatened to rescind or cancel Samantha Pfefferle’s admission as a freshman after she posted a video to her account on the popular social media site TikTok showing her support for President Trump.

The video, titled “When the libs find their way to your page,” has  captions such as “When people see that I support Trump,” “Then try to hate on me,” and “And think I’ll change my views,” over a video of Pfefferle dancing.

The video features a Trump 2020 flag as well as a sign reading “Marquette 2024.” The song used in the video is rapper 6ix9ine’s GOOBA, and plays lyrics such as “ He’s mad, she’s’ mad, big sad, haha, don’t care, stay mad.”

Pfefferle’s post has been watched nearly 600,000 times and has since caught the attention of the Marquette community, some of whom began harassing Pfefferle. Others threatened her life.

One TikTok user wrote: “I hope you get shot.” Another commenter wrote: “I’d pray for you but you’re not worth it.”

Pfefferle told The College Fix in an interview that “I was extremely disappointed by the incendiary comments” and that “The response from my peers has been repulsive.”

She said that after she posted her video on  TikTok, she was contacted by Brian Troyer, dean of undergraduate admissions at Marquette, who  told her her acceptance to the school was far from certain.

Pfefferle said, “[He] had the heart to tell me I wasn’t a student. This means that my classification is still in limbo and is currently being decided by the administration. I have been accepted, I paid for my housing, I have my roommates, I even have a complete class schedule. If that doesn’t make me a student, what does?”

Some Marquette administrators also asked Pfefferle a series of questions meant to judge her morals, she said. “They also asked me hypothetical questions regarding Dreamers [children born in the United States of illegal aliens]. How would I respond if a Dreamer who lived down the hall from me came up to me and told me she didn’t feel safe or comfortable with my views and me being on campus. They also asked me if they thought there was anything I could do to improve my image on campus. They proceeded to ask if I was comfortable with the reputation I have established for myself. The assistant dean asked if I put any thought into the response I would be getting from my videos.”

A Marquette spokeswoman told Empower Wisconsin that the school had not rescinded Pfefferle’s offer, but admitted that “the admissions team did recently have a conversation with incoming freshman Samantha Pfefferle about statements made on her social media accounts.”

Progressive haters are banding on social media to ensure Pfefferle would not be admitted into Marquette University:

  • Calling Pfefferle “transphobic, racist, and xenophobic” and that her video creates “an unsafe space for the LGBTQ+ community, first generation students, and Dreamers at Marquette,” an Instagram user created a copy and paste email template requesting to have Pfefferle’s admission rescinded from Marquette and is encouraging others to send the email to Marquette’s administration.
  • On TikTok user wrote: “how can i help. she will not be going to college next year.” Another comment reads: “Free speech does not mean no consequences”; yet another gleefully wrote: “i love love LOVE conservatives getting their school offers revoked.”

Pfefferle has supporters. There is a petition on Change.org to keep her enrolled at Marquette. Titled “Stop Marquette University From Removing Incoming Conservative Student for Her Beliefs,” the petition states:

Freedom of expression is the most fundamental of all rights. What precedence are we setting for future conservative generations? We can’t afford to capitulate in the face of tyranny when our youth are depending on us to protect their rights.

As of the writing of this post, 6,223 has signed the petition.

The petition clearly has had an effect because Pfefferle told The College Fix that on July 6, Marquette told her they would not revoke her admission. However, Marquette’s officials still have not responded to College Fix‘s numerous requests for comment.
