Should Holocaust education be mandatory? This Oregon 9th-grader tries to make it so

Just ten states have laws requiring grade school Holocaust education, but a Lake Oswego, Oregon, high school student is hoping to make her state the 11th ... There are ten states where Holocaust education is mandatory: California, Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Kentucky, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania and Rhode Island, according to Rhonda Fink-Whitman, who helped spearhead the law in Pennsylvania and now coordinates a nationwide effort through her Facebook group "Campaign to Make Holocaust Education Mandatory in All 50 States." The daughter of a Holocaust survivor, Fink-Whitman said she was surprised to learn teachers weren't required to teach about the Holocaust in her home state of Pennsylvania.

Close Call For Children Of College Students In California

The left’s disregard for human life is shocking, and they will go out of their way to demonstrate this.

Pro-abortion advocates have been pushing to have their death sentences infiltrate unsuspecting arenas.

Now, in the latest force-fed politics by liberals, college campuses are looking to provide a disturbing service for their students.

HuffPost reported:

“Senate Bill 320 — which called for the 34 University of California and California State University campuses to make the abortion pill available in student health centers — was born out of a grassroots campaign at the University of California, Berkeley, after a group of students there noticed it was not available at the campus’ health center.”

Hawaii public teachers’ salaries misrepresented

A widely cited study issued last month by WalletHub erroneously stated that Hawaii public school teachers make a starting salary of only $24,409 when adjusted for cost of living, supposedly lowest in the nation.

In reality, Hawaii teachers make starting salaries that are $35,140 when adjusted for the cost of living, which is above the national average.

In response to a request for information from the Grassroot Institute of Hawaii, WalletHub said it assumed a cost-of-living index for Hawaii of 188.3. It attributed that number to a report by the Council for Community and Economic Research,[1] which catalogues cost-of-living indices of urban areas nationally.

Disturbing School Assignment Is A Sign Of Things To Come

We are all aware of the global progressive agenda pushed on the youngest of children, and now we have a shocking new look into what kids in the U.K. are learning.

Bewsey Lodge Primary School in Warrington, England just released a video they were quite proud of.

The topic? Kindergarten-aged children being forced to write “love letters” between an imaginary same-sex couple to promote “tolerance” and “diversity.”

One teacher explained the assignment by stating: “This class of 6-year-olds is learning about gay marriage. In this fairy tale, the prince wants to marry his [male] servant. And the children are writing a love letter,” as reported by The Blaze.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Whatever happened to teaching the kids science, math, and engineering?!?

Stanford’s Hoover Institution implicated in “astroturfed” pro-Israel demonstration

A leaked clip from a censored documentary indicates that a pro-Israel, anti-Arab protest was manufactured with the help of some staff and students from the Hoover Institution.

The documentary, produced by Al Jazeera, says that the protestors at the demonstration were “on a fellowship program run by a conservative think tank called the Hoover Institution.” A student says in the clip that they were “forced” to participate.

The Hoover Institution is located at Stanford University and is funded under Stanford University’s tax-exempt status as an educational institution. The Hoover Institution has refused to answer questions about the report.

Activists File Title IX Complaint Against Georgetown Professor Christine Fair over Her Call for Senator’s Deaths, Castration

An activist group has filed a Title IX complaint against Georgetown University Professor Christine Fair, who came under fire earlier this month for calling for the deaths and castration of several GOP senators.

“Look at [this] chorus of entitled white men justifying a serial rapist’s arrogated entitlement,” Fair wrote in the tweet on September 29. “All of them deserve miserable deaths while feminists laugh as they take their last gasps. Bonus: we castrate their corpses and feed them to swine? Yes.”

Creepy survey asks 5th-graders about their sex lives

Parents at a Vermont elementary school were livid after learning their 10-year-old children were queried about their sexual history and gender identity without their permission as part of a university research project.

Ten fifth-grade students at Windsor State Street School were asked to fill out a survey inquiring about their biological sex, how they “identify,” their sexual preferences, and whether they had had a “romantic relationship” with a “sexual partner” within the last year.

The survey was administered on behalf of Women’s Information Services, a nonprofit domestic violence prevention and advocacy group. It was also linked to a research project at the University of New Hampshire.

Outside In: The Trump administration’s plan to remake the Middle East

The only promise that is new about the promised peace plan is the way it will be forced on the Palestinians: no one has promised that the plan itself will be new. With Saudi Arabia and Egypt—the outside—brought onside with the promise of continued military aid despite their crimes against humanity and violations of international law and the Palestinians weakened by being silenced, economically crushed and stripped of any friends to help them, the United States and Israel are now free to attempt to impose a peace plan on the Palestinians.

Student Charged For Allegedly Making False Anti-LGBT Threats Against Herself

A member of student government at Ohio University has been charged with a misdemeanor after she allegedly made false statements to police about receiving threatening messages. 

Anna Ayers, who is a member of the OU student senate, was arrested Monday and charged by the Ohio University Police Department with three separate counts of “making false alarms.” It is alleged that Ayers falsely reported multiple threatening messages, including a “death threat,” which she claims was because of her being a member of the LGBTQ community.

Cook told The Chronicle he chose not to enforce the pledge because of his disappointment with the political climate. He said the Trump administration “has been attacking our liberties.”

University of Michigan punishes professor for boycotting Israel

Free speech and Palestinian advocacy groups have denounced the University of Michigan for reprimanding a professor who refused to write a letter of recommendation for a student looking to study in Israel.

John Cheney-Lippold, an associate professor of American culture, had agreed to write the letter, but later declined after finding the student was planning to study in Tel Aviv. The professor is engaged in an academic boycott of Israel amid its human rights abuses against Palestinians.

"I am very sorry, but I only scanned your first email a couple weeks ago and missed out on a key detail," Cheney-Lippold wrote the student, Abigail Ingber, in an email last month.

"As you may know, many university departments have pledged an academic boycott against Israel in support of Palestinians living in Palestine. This boycott includes writing letters of recommendation for students planning to study there."

Report: Principal Boots Student Wearing Trump Jersey at ‘America Night’ Football Game

At one North Carolina high school, “patriotic” apparently doesn’t mean the president.

According to WTVD, ABC 11 in Durham, an 18-year-old student was ordered to change a jersey he wore with the name “Trump” and the number “45” for a football game Friday night, then marched off the premises by the school’s principal.

'Whoever's not Armenian we're gonna shoot': Students suspended from California high school over brawl caused by racial tension on campus

Several students were disciplined at a high school in California after a violent brawl broke out on campus which parents believe was a race riot.

A video posted online last Wednesday shows dozens of students at Herbert Hoover High School in Glendale involved in an altercation that has resulted in suspensions.

Police were called to the school around 1 pm Wednesday at the end of the lunch hour where dozens of students were involved in the melee.

Several stories have been floated around regarding what started the fight, including a bullying incident.

Israel detains American student at airport for five days over her political views, with little attention from U.S. press

Israel’s detention at its international airport of Lara Alqasem, 22, an American student holding a visa to study at Hebrew University, has gone on five days today. Reports from the Israeli media are that Alqasem, whose father is Palestinian, will get a hearing of her appeal of the deportation order— “within days,” her lawyers hope.

This is plainly a battle between liberal forces inside Israel and the rightwing government. The Israeli government is denying visitors to Alqasem and is determined to deport her for pro-boycott views that Alqasem has sought to distance herself from.

The Times of Israel reports today:

The Tel Aviv District Court on Sunday was set to schedule a hearing for an appeal against the deportation of a US student of Palestinian descent, who was denied entry into the country last week over her alleged support of the movement to boycott Israel.

Alqasem is raising money by crowdsource in order to fight the deportation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

An American kid, with a visa to study at Hebrew University?!?

Does any one of US Corporate presstitutes or members of the Israeli Knesset understand, even vaguely, just how lousy the optics of this detention are here for the country of Israel?!?

And Israel sells itself as "the only democracy in the Middle East"?!?

Give this detainee a break, here! Show yourself, as a government to be magnanimous, even if you hate the way she thinks, if you can.

And we have a companion story, also from antiwar.com: and bless Hebrew University for having the "male attributes" to have done this!

In a rare move, Hebrew University asks to join the appear for a US student detained by Israel

Putting War Back in Children’s Culture

Now that Darth Vader’s breathy techno-voice is a staple of our culture, it’s hard to remember how empty was the particular sector of space Star Wars blasted into. The very day the Paris Peace Accords were signed in 1973, Richard Nixon also signed a decree ending the draft. It was an admission of the obvious: war, American-style, had lost its hold on young minds. As an activity, it was now to be officially turned over to the poor and nonwhite.

Those in a position to produce movies, TV shows, comics, novels, or memoirs about Vietnam were convinced that Americans felt badly enough without such reminders. It was simpler to consider the war film and war toy casualties of Vietnam than to create cultural products with the wrong heroes, victims, and villains. In Star Wars, George Lucas successfully challenged this view, decontaminating war of its recent history through a series of inspired cinematic decisions that rescued crucial material from the wreckage of Vietnam.

Police-Grade Surveillance Technology Comes to the Playground

As other elementary schools across the country were preparing for the new school year by cleaning classrooms and training teachers, Hermosa Elementary, in Artesia, New Mexico was also installing a network of wireless microphones that could pick up the specific concussive audio signature of gunfire. Placed high in classrooms and hallways, the golf-ball-sized devices can alert authorities to the sound and location of gunshots, reportedly within 20 seconds of firing. They can also identify make and model of guns, and automatically lock doors and sound alarms throughout the campus.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Note that every dime spent for surveillance, personnel, and related equipment is not the dime being spent on real education for these kids.

Were I to understand that this was happening in my child's public school, if home-schooling was permitted, I would pull that child out of public school immediately, schedule an appointment with the principal, and explain why I was doing this.

If I lived in a state where home schooling is not allowed, I would move to a state in which it was; if Mike and I had had children, this is something that would have been that an important issue for us.

WATCH: WHAT TAILGAITING IN A POLICE STATE LOOKS LIKE, POLICE HELICOPTER RAINS DOWN HELL ON TAILGATERS

In all of our years reporting on police conduct and activity at the Free Thought Project, we have never seen anything like we are reporting today. Several utterly insane videos show police officers from Penn State University using their helicopter to rain down hell from above on hundreds of students and parents alike who were tailgaiting for the game.

According to police, a group of college students involved with a fraternity were told to move from one area and relocate to another. However, according to police, this did not happen, so they escalated their tactics.

As StateCollege.com reports:

Penn State parent and tailgater Scott Olson said that early Saturday morning, a police officer asked the fraternity tailgating next to his group to move one space over. After the fraternity’s members refused to move, the officer told Olson and his group that the fraternity would be on watch for the day.

Dumbing Down America: Teacher Fired For Not Giving Students Partial Credit For Work They Never Did

A teacher in Port St. Lucie, Florida is now speaking out about how she was fired for refusing to give students partial credit for work that they never turned in. That’s right, for giving students a zero for completing zero percent of their work, Diane Tirado says she was fired. School policy dictates that she was supposed to give them at least 50 percent—for nothing.

Hungary’s Holocaust museum triggers bitter conflict between Jewish groups

The planned opening of a Holocaust museum in Budapest has triggered an acrimonious exchange between the European Jewish Congress and Chabad of Hungary. In a statement Monday, EJC President Moshe Kantor called the Hungarian Chabad affiliate EMIH a group with "no tradition and no historical roots in Hungary" that is favored by the government for its moral pliability but not by local Jews. EMIH fired back by calling Kantor a dodgy oligarch who is ignorant of Hungarian history. The unusually harsh exchange is an escalation in the controversy over the House of Fates state-funded museum ahead of its opening next year under the ownership of EMIH ... The boycott was over the government's appointment of Maria Schmidt, a historian who has equated Nazism and communism, to head the museum.

Jobs for All, Not College for All

Seven million jobs remain unfilled in the United States because employers can't find Americans with the skills to do them. At the same time, almost six million Americans remain out of work, despite record-low unemployment. In his soon-to-be published book The Once and Future Worker, Manhattan Institute senior fellow Oren Cass points out that the bulk of educational spending at the K-12 level is based on the premise that all children can and should attend college. Yet, despite a massive investment in higher education and financial aid, fewer than half of young adults attain a four-year degree ... Our national obsession with college obscures the economic demand for non-college skilled or trained labor.

Top food researcher resigns after his work gets retracted

A prominent Cornell University food researcher resigned after an investigation found he committed academic misconduct, including misreporting data, the school announced Thursday.

Brian Wansink has been removed from all teaching and research positions and will retire at the end of the school year next June, Cornell said in a statement.

Wansink had previously helped update the US dietary guidelines and is known for his research on consumer behavior, which has been widely cited including in articles by The Associated Press.

Cornell says Wansink’s academic misconduct also included “problematic statistical techniques, failure to properly document and preserve research results and inappropriate authorship.”

"Transphobic" Swedish Professor May Lose Job After Noting Biological Differences Between Sexes

A university professor in Sweden is under investigation for "anti-feminism" and "transphobia" after he said that there are fundamental differences between men and women which are "biologically founded" and that genders cannot be regarded as "social constructs alone," reports Academic Rights Watch.

For his transgression, Germund Hesslow - a professor of neuroscience at Lund University - who holds dual PhDs in philosophy and neurophysiology, may lose his job - telling RT that a "full investigation" has been ordered, and that there "have been discussions about trying to stop the lecture or get rid of me, or have someone else give the lecture or not give the lecture at all."

“If you answer such a question you are under severe time pressure, you have to be extremely brief — and I used wording which I think was completely innocuous, and that apparently the student didn't,” Hesslow said.

Female Pedophiles ~ The BIG List Documentary {Part 1}

“Over the past four decades our corrupt and deceitful corporate-owned mainstream media, in cooperation with feminists and women's groups, have very effectively conditioned the public with propaganda with respect to how we view men. The only women who know the truth about female sexual predators are the mothers of the male children who have been sexually molested by a female predator. Remember that for every video clip you see about a female committing a sex related crime, there's a hundred news articles for which a video of a female predator was never made. This documentary dispels the belief that only men are capable of sexual exploitation of children”. (3.00 - 3.48)

School District To Begin Randomly Drug-Testing High School Students

While some parents support the new policy and hope it will discourage students from bringing drugs to school, others, like Lance Leach, feel it is too invasive.

“Like suspicious behavior or they got caught doing something, then maybe, but not just random drug testing.“

Guy who says dinosaurs were on Noah's Ark tapped to review Arizona's evolution standards

Here is a bit of instruction from a guy Superintendent Diane Douglas tapped to help review Arizona’s standards on how to teach evolution in science class:

The earth is just 6,000 years old and dinosaurs were present on Noah’s Ark. But only the young ones. The adult ones were too big to fit, don’t you know.

"Plenty of space on the Ark for dinosaurs – no problem," Joseph Kezele explained to Phoenix New Times' Joseph Flaherty.

Political Roundup: Free speech has been strengthened at Massey

The attempt by the head of Massey University to ban Don Brash from speaking on campus last month has entirely backfired. Instead of Brash being undermined by her actions, it now looks like Vice Chancellor Jan Thomas is in danger of losing her position. What's more, her actions have ended up reinforcing academic freedoms on campus.

Certainly, we now know that Massey University academic staff have been fighting back against their boss, with the view that she has brought their institution into disrepute. Peter Lineham, a professor of history at Massey has been leading the charge, and he put forward a motion to the University's Academic Council yesterday to censure the Vice Chancellor.

"We don't want to go down some American style culture war where we see this sort of issue and people shouting down different views to them."

US school textbooks: Arab rejection of Israel cause of conflict

Schools in the US state of Texas will be required to teach students that “Arab rejection of the State of Israel has led to ongoing conflict” in the Middle East.

The Texas Board of Education voted during a curriculum review last week to keep the controversial sentence in high school textbooks, which will be used by some 5.4 million public school children. The board is comprised of five Democrat members and ten Republican members, meaning the move is likely to be seen as part of a shift towards a more Republican educational agenda.

In addition, the board voted to remove references to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton being the first woman to run for Presidential office. While teaching students about Clinton will not be banned, the board claims the move is part of an effort to “streamline” lessons and save teachers approximately 30 minutes of time.

All of these anti-Semitism allegations continue to sideline Palestinian suffering

As the row over what constitutes anti-Semitism rages in Britain, the very real fear that freedom of speech is being threatened has already been realised in America, according to one Jewish campaign group. At the heart of the argument is a decision by the Trump administration to change how the Education Department investigates allegations that Jewish students face discrimination; not surprisingly, the Trump team has backed an approach that is endorsed by pro-Israel groups.

The policy change has already prompted the reinvestigation of an event held seven years ago, involving Holocaust and Nakba survivors, which was deemed to be anti-Semitic because it included criticism of the Israeli government. The reopening of the 2011 case, dismissed under the Obama administration, means that anyone who supports Palestinian human rights is potentially going to be regarded as an anti-Semite, says Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP).

Leftists now claim “gifted” math classes are racist and must be halted nationwide

Cacey Wells, a teaching professor at the University of Oklahoma, wants to get rid of all advanced math classes designed for “gifted” students because he believes they’re inherently racist and promote “academic apartheid.”

According to Wells, placing more adept students into higher-level math classes based on their abilities is a form of “capitalist exploitation and settler colonialism,” a designation that’s supposed to sound really “smart,” but that’s nothing more than a rhetorical hodgepodge of anti-white, left-wing gobbledygook.

In a recent study he wrote, entitled, “Understand Issues Associated With Tracking Students in Mathematics Education” and published in the Columbia University journal Mathematics Education, Wells openly condemns even the mere tracking of individual students and their academic performance as a way to assess which math classes they belong in, claiming that doing so promotes white supremacy.

Iran WARNING: US tells airlines not to fly through airspace as WW3 fears rise

The advisory also warns military activities linked to the bloody conflict in Syria have been ramped across Iran's airspace.

Tensions between Tehran and Washington are running high following Donald Trump’s controversial decision to pull out of the landmark Iran nuclear deal re-introduce economic sanctions last month.

Flight Service Bureau, which provides safety information on airspace to airlines, said "without seeming alarmist", the deteriorating relationship between the US and Iran must be taken into account when planning flights in Iran's airspace.

(NZ)Education Review Office tells schools: teach more about porn

The Education Review Office says high schools should be teaching about pornography and sexual violence so teenagers learn what's healthy and what's not.

The agency, in its first review of sexuality education in schools since 2007, says schools have not kept pace with an explosion of access to pornography and other sexual content on smartphones and social media.

"To meet the needs of young people in our current context, sexuality education needs to be more comprehensive and the variability across schools needs to be reduced," it says.

"This evaluation found some schools were failing to meet minimum standards of effectiveness, and many more were only just meeting these standards.

High School English Students Forced to Learn Gender-Bending Pronouns and Anti-White Propaganda

If you send your kids off to high school thinking they will learn how to diagram sentences and write competently, you may want to check their English requirements. John F. Kennedy High School in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, has other ideas about learning English that include gender-neutral pronouns, discussions of sexuality, and anti-white propaganda.

A student posted an assignment to social media, handed out by teacher Emily Thomson of Kennedy High's English department, that detailed "power and privilege" in America which, according to the assignment, names "U.S. born," "white people," "Christians," "middle, owning class," "heterosexuals," "men," and "veterans" as the oppressors of non-white humankind. How this is not a violation of the school's policy against discrimination based on race, creed, and sexuality is baffling.

9-11 Research : An Attempt to Uncover the Truth About September 11th, 2001

We all know the official story of September 11th: four jetliners were hijacked by groups of four and five Arabic men armed with box cutters, who proceeded to fly three of the four jets into the Twin Towers and the Pentagon. Subsequently the World Trade Center Towers, weakened by the impacts and fires, collapsed into piles of rubble. The FBI had compiled a list of hijackers within three days, and it was so obvious that Osama bin Laden had masterminded the operation from caves in Afghanistan, that there was no need to seriously investigate the crime or produce evidence. The "retaliatory" attack on the Taliban would soon commence.

Is this story true? Its central assumptions have never been tested by an official government body whose members lack obvious conflicts of interest. There are numerous red flags in the official story, which requires a long series of highly improbable coincidences. Questioning that story is an act of responsible citizenship.

9/11 War Games


TRANSCRIPT AND MP3: https://www.corbettreport.com/911warg... Little did we know at the time, 9/11 was not a normal day of blue sky aviation. On the contrary, it was one of the busiest days in the history of American aviation, a dense forest of live fly exercises, drills, simulations, fake radar injects and utter confusion. And that was before the attacks even began. This is the story of 9/11 that you didn't watch unfold on your TV that fateful day in 2001. This is the story of the 9/11 War Games.

911 - Press for Truth


This documentary presents the many-faceted events that led up to, and then scrutinizes, the 9/11 Comission hearings. Massive injustices and mis-representations are brought to light and "exposed" by respected members of the mainstream American media, and from the families themselves in the narrative of events that shaped most greatly our world today; "9/11: Press for Truth" The families present their 2 1/2 year struggle to create an investigation and inquiry into the events of 9/11 -- which was at first heavily resisted and even explicity prohibited by the President and Vice-President. For an example of contrast in funding; the internal disruption of a Clinton-Lewisnki "sex scandal" the event was awarded a budget of 100 million dollars in total. Initially the 9/11 Comission was only alotted 3 million dollars and their time-limit was severly cut beyond the expecations of those who brought it into existence.

Sycophants for psychopaths: 14 minutes of two videos showing purpose of public education (+ corporate media) is creating stupefied work animals for ongoing illegal neocolonial rogue state empire serving .01% lying parasites annually killing millions

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

Everything I have to help, in my comment to Prince Ea’s brilliant 8-minute artistic question and response to “What is school for?” (followed by video):

This is awesome and true. I'm a Harvard-educated, National Board Certified Teacher, credentialed in two subjects, and with two Los Angeles Mayors recognition my teaching was among the best among ~20,000 teachers in Central L.A. My professional conclusion of what school is for: to stupefy children to become work animals for an ongoing illegal rogue state empire that can only exist if the public accepts basic lies. Here's my series of essays to document and prove this: https://washingtonsblog.com/2016/06/us-public-education-bullshit-train...

Billionaires v teachers: the Koch brothers' plan to starve public education

With groups funded by the Koch brothers and DeVos nudging things along, Arizona lawmakers enacted the nation’s broadest school vouchers law, state-funded vouchers that are supposed to give parents more school choice and can be spent on private or religiously affiliated schools. For opponents, the system is not about choice but about further weakening the public school system. A half-dozen women who had battled for months against the legislation were angry as hell.
