The University of Southern California is turning down a $5 million gift from embattled Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein, less than a week after Rutgers University announced it will not return a smaller donation Weinstein made to that school.

UPDATE: Rutgers President Openly Lobbies for Illegal Immigrants

Do you remember, back in December, when Rutgers President Robert Barchi indicated his openness to a university-wide “sanctuary campus,” Save Jerseyans, where illegal immigrants could work/learn/hang out without fear of federal action?

ROONEY RANTS: Rutgers should think long, hard before going the ‘Sanctuary Campus’ route

While you were Christmasing at the end of last week, Save Jerseyans, our friends at Rutgers University were striking another blow for progressivism. It came in the form of University President Robert Barchi responding to reports/speculation/fears/hysteria related to President-elect Donald Trump’s expected changes to U.S. immigration enforcement. Like other universities across the country, plenty of his […]

Rutgers favors the long-dead over its loan-battered living

Yes, we routinely give Rutgers University’s administration a healthy dose of grief here at Save Jersey. Don’t feel bad; it’s all well deserved. Taking hundreds of millions of dollars in tax dollars to transform a legendary, historic institution into a liberal think tank is an act worth of derision. I’m also an alumnus of the […]

Rutgers offers counseling for Trump traumatized students

Here they go again, Save Jerseyans. Rutgers University, one of our nation’s most far-left institutions of higher (mis)education, is continuing its disturbing modern tradition of protecting one viewpoint (and shutting down dissent) in the wake of last week’s historic presidential election. Rutgers President Robert Barchi is the familiar culprit-in-chief; Save Jersey has learned that he […]

By The Staff | The Save Jersey Blog President Barack Obama addressed a crowd of approximately 50,000 at High Point Solutions Stadium on Rutgers’ Busch Campus in Piscataway this Sunday, Save Jerseyans, and while saluting a long history of Rutger University’s intellectual contributions to the country and the world, the lame duck commander-in-chief could’ve help […]


It’s time for Rutgers ‘No Rice’ protesters to apologize

By Najum M. Junaid | The Save Jersey Blog Last November, I published a commentary on the double standards and hypocrisy of the No Rice protests.  I was then criticized for being too preemptive, and supposedly misrepresenting them, accusations that I believe are facetious and exemplify the double standards employed by No Rice.  I debated […]

At Rutgers, marginalizing conservatives is the last acceptable form of bigotry

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog Yes, Barack Obama is coming to Rutgers University, Save Jerseyans, exciting liberals in all 21 counties who’ve still yet to figure out (or come to grips with the fact) that he’s a total and complete failure.

Rutgers makes light of its own ‘sustainability’ obsession

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog We’ve spent a LOT of time here at Save Jersey discussing the Rutgers University system’s misplaced priorities, Save Jerseyans, which are all fair game since taxpayers heavily subsidize that institution. There’s a University Committee for Sustainability for God’s sake… which eliminated dining hall trays back in 2014. […]

Rutgers doesn’t care about illegal immigrants’ kids. They want the money!

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog Yes, Save Jerseyans. It’s that simple. The goal of Saturday’s publicized Rutgers University college fair for “undocumented” (read: illegal) immigrants wasn’t as altruistic as it seemed. For the second year in a row, the university knowingly and openly assisted prospective students lacking legal citizenship or visitor status shop through […]
