Air Force: No Plans to Recall Retired Pilots to Fix Shortage

***
Trump last Friday signed the order to address what the Pentagon says is a serious pilot shortage.

A Pentagon spokesman says the Air Force is currently short about 1,500 pilots, and had indicated that the Secretary of Defense would allow the Secretary of the Air Force to recall up to 1,000 retired pilots for up to three years.

Camille Paglia Says that Women’s and Gender Studies Departments Should be Defunded

“The English Department had taken a century to develop,” Paglia began. “All of a sudden, to create a department with a politicized agenda from the start taught by people without any training in that field? What should be the parameters of the field? What should be the requirements of the field? How about biology? If you are going to be discussing gender, that should be a number one requirement.”

Paglia argued that active programs in the field were thrown together out of the urgency to highlight women’s issues in the curriculum of the American academy. “The administrators wanted to solve a public relations problem. They had a situation with very few women faculty nationwide, at the time when the women’s movement had just started up. The spotlight of tension was on them. They needed women faculty fast. They needed the women’s subject on the agenda fast. So they just like, poof! ‘Let there be Women’s Studies.'”

Cambridge University students given trigger warnings for Shakespeare plays

Academics have criticised "trigger warnings" after Cambridge University students were warned about "potentially distressing topics" in plays by Shakespeare.

English literature undergraduates were apparently cautioned that a lecture focusing on Titus Andronicus and The Comedy of Errors would include "discussions of sexual violence" and "sexual assault".

According to The Telegraph, the trigger warnings were posted in the English Faculty's 'Notes on Lectures' document which is circulated to students at the university.

The apparent goal of political correctness is to turn us all into a bunch of sissies!

Headmaster apologizes for gender-neutral toilets that made pupils ‘uncomfortable’

A headmaster at one of Britain’s top schools has been forced to apologize for introducing gender-neutral toilets. Earlier in the year he was criticized for allowing boys to wear skirts as part of their school uniform.

Adam Pettit oversaw the conversion of toilets at Highgate School in North London over the summer holidays, saying it would help students who are “gender fluid or don’t wish to identify themselves with a gender.”

He claimed at the time young people were “pleasingly accepting of and sympathetic to those whose lives are made miserable by the inability of institutions to adapt to their gender-fluidity or their gender-neutrality.”

According to the Daily Mail, however, the move was condemned by parents and pupils at the £20,370-a-year co-educational private day school.

Kansas Teacher Barred from Employment for Supporting BDS

Barring longtime math teacher Esther Koontz from renewing her teaching contract, solely for her political beliefs, is a flagrant First Amendment violation.

She righteously supports BDS activism, wanting Israel held accountable for its high crimes against Palestinians.

Kansas House Bill 2409 prohibits state contracts with individuals critical of Israel’s agenda. In NAACP v. Claiborne Hardware Co. (1982), the Supreme Court unanimously ruled for the plaintiff against state authorities, cracking down on boycotts of white businesses, saying authority over economic relations doesn’t limit or deny political speech.

Koontz is a member of the Mennonite Church USA. In July, it voted to divest from US companies, profiting from Israel’s illegal occupation.

She supports Palestinian rights. Her employment papers require a declaration in writing of no support for BDS. She declined and was denied the right to train

"The System Is Broken": Angry Baltimore Dad Lashes Out As 12th Grader Tests At 4th Grade Math Level

One Baltimore resident and disable Army veteran, Victor Able, Sr., is fed up with the public education that his son, a 12th grader on the verge of graduation, received from City Neighbors Charter School after he recently tested at 4th grade level in math and 5th grade level in reading. Able says his son was simply passed to the next grade year after year so that his school could continue to receive extra federal funding even though it failed to deliver results. After his complaints fell on deaf ears at city council and the mayor’s office, Able has now hired an attorney to address a system he says is "broken." Per Fox News:

According to the IEP report, the 12th grader reads at a 5th grade level; does math at a 4th grade level.

“It’s not supposed to happen,” stated Able. “I don’t want him to fall out into the streets.”

“They failed my son,” said Able. “Not just my son, a whole lot of kids. The system is broken. They need to stop and fix it.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

God bless this man for taking on the teachers' union in Baltimore.

Unions are an absolute blight on the system, many times preventing students from receiving anything approximating an excellent education.

How the Radical Left Has Taken Over Higher Education: 7 Professors Who Promote Violence

Colleges and universities are breeding grounds for the Radical Left, encouraging Antifa violence and would-be Communist revolutionaries. That sounds outrageous, but it's absolutely true. More and more, we're hearing stories about instructors supporting Antifa, leading "resistance" groups, and making genocidal comments about white people. The Radical Left has taken over the higher education system.

It's pretty hard to hope for unity when our halls of higher education are hard at work creating a generation of young people who hate everything for which America stands. The backward logic used to sway the feelings and opinions of students is obvious to us, but to younger, idealistic people without experience in the real world, it can seem like these instructors are brilliant souls marching to the beat of a drum so escalated that mere mortals can't even hear it, much less understand it.

Here are just a few examples of Radical Left teachers influencing the next generation.

Israel cancels ban on racist answers in civics exam

The Education Ministry has canceled a prohibition against giving racist answers on the civics matriculation exam.

The original rule, published shortly before the school year began, stated that “racist or inflammatory statements” would result in the response receiving no credit. But a few days ago, the head of the ministry’s pedagogical secretariat, Moshe Weinstock, rescinded this rule, on the grounds, according to the ministry, that “we need to inculcate the change gradually.”

Weinstock was appointed by Education Minister Naftali Bennett. Members of the ministry’s civics advisory committee who are affiliated with Bennett’s Habayit Hayehudi party supported his reversal.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Regarding the education of its kids, what else else would one expect of such a vilely apartheid, self-proclaimed theocracy with nuclear weapons?!?

Democracy and peace are not on Tel Aviv's agendea whatsoever, but it wants the acquisition of territory, and by any means necesssary.

And to demonstrate what I mean, look at the map of Eretz Israel, which is how the Zionists in Israel want to redraw its borders; notice how many other countries lose territory in its quest to create a country with borders which stretch from the Nile to the Euphrates Rivers:

Top Executives Ditch Clinton’s Laureate Education Company

Top executives at a company with ties to former President Bill Clinton called Laureate Education are leaving the firm only months after they launched its IPO, The Daily Caller News Foundation Investigative Group has learned.

The Baltimore-based company became an issue during the 2016 presidential election campaign when the public learned it paid Clinton nearly $18 million over a period of five years to serve as a consultant and “honorary chancellor.” The firm also faced accusations it operated as a “pay-to-play” company by donating between $1 to $5 million to the Clinton Foundation while receiving hundreds of millions of dollars in government funds.

But the latest problem for Laureate appears to be the exodus of its top executives only months after the company went public Feb. 1. To date, Laureate’s founder and chief executive officer, chief operating officer, general counsel and its chief human resources officer have resigned or announced their resignation.

“The Revolution Will Not Uphold the Constitution” – Hard-Left Black Lives Matter Agitators Disrupt ACLU Free Speech Event

A group of hard-left agitators affiliated with the Black Lives Matter movement disrupted a free speech event put on by the American Civil Liberties Union at the College of William & Mary, rushing the stage and preventing the guest from even speaking while chanting Antifa like slogans about how bad the country is and the need to shut down free speech once and for all.

The ACLU’s Claire Gastañaga was at the college to speak on the subject of “Students and the First Amendment” but shortly after taking the stage she was overrun with BLM protesters who made it clear they were there to do one thing – shut down free speech completely.

As Reason Magazine reported, the disruption was livestreamed and documented a variety of different shocking statements made by the group that paint a clear picture of who the people on the hard-left really are as well as what they seem to be willing to do to achieve their goals.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The "Hard Left" reeks with the aura of "entitledment".

And I am very concerned about the coming "Antifa" protests which are supposed to start on 4 November, threatening to "take over" the US government and depose Trump and Pence.

What their actions will most likely achieve, if people are foolish enough to believe that this kind of behavour will bring about the changes they seek, will be a suspension of the Constitution and Bill of Rights, and the imposition of martial law in this country; this is hardly a place any sane Ameericans want to be.

"F**k Your F**king Freedom Of Speech" - Angry Student Steals MAGA Hat, Demands Victim Be Punished

A video of the incident obtained by Campus Reform shows an enraged female student taking the hat to the school’s Student Life Department as Matthew Vitale fruitlessly attempts to explain to the young woman that the hat is his property.

“So this guy thought it would be a good idea to go into a conference wearing this f***ing hat,” the student who stole the hat states.

“Look at the kind of sh*t he’s wearing, You know what this represents? This represents genocide—genocide of a bunch of people.”
Vitale then tries to explain that “you do not get to take other people’s property that is legally theirs in this country,” to which the unidentified thief replies, “man, f*** your laws.”

“Do you have any f***ing conscience?” she goes on to ask, questioning why Vitale would dare to wear a MAGA hat on campus and telling him that his “f***ing freedom of speech is genocide, homeboy.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Somewhere in this lady's "educational process", she has decided that the unholy trio of rudeness, violence, and victimhood are the essential tools for personal empowerment.

Microwave auditory effect

The microwave auditory effect, also known as the microwave hearing effect or the Frey effect, consists of audible clicks (or, with speech modulation, spoken words) induced by pulsed/modulated microwave frequencies. The clicks are generated directly inside the human head without the need of any receiving electronic device. The effect was first reported by persons working in the vicinity of radar transponders during World War II. During the Cold War era, the American neuroscientist Allan H. Frey studied this phenomenon and was the first to publish[1] information on the nature of the microwave auditory effect.

Posted in response to Mike's dismissal of the more 'exotic' technologies that do exist. One can only assume that if articles like this are posted to Wikipedia then there is certainly more where this came from!

Not a Snowflake Day Care — Walter Williams on American colleges

Many colleges have become hotbeds of what might be labeled as enlightened racism. Students at the University of California, Berkeley created “safe spaces” for people of color.

HUNDREDS OF UNIVERSITIES HAVE HELPED DHS CREATE A NATION OF FEAR

Ever wonder who's responsible for our daily dosage of fear, terror and crime?

Look no further than our colleges and universities.

According to DHS, 'Homeland Security Centers of Excellence' (COE) are 'led by a college or university'.

COE's are responsible for blacklists, countering violent extremism and DHS propaganda videos and literature.

Colleges and universities have been working with DHS for fifteen years.

Since 2002, when the Homeland Security Act was passed, numerous colleges and universities have been feeding from the DHS money trough. Each year they line up like good little Bundists, promoting DHS's vision of terror.

Think about that, everything you've been told about terrorism and extremism is coming from colleges!

Schools across America will do anything, even if that means working with DHS, so they can get a piece of the annual $35-$40 million pie.

MORE THAN 40 FAMILIES PULL CHILDREN FROM SCHOOL THAT FORCED TRANSGENDER LESSON ON 5-YEAR-OLDS

Forty-one families have pulled 73 children from the elite Sacramento-area Rocklin Academy charter schools as the board continues to defend a kindergarten transgender lesson several parents say traumatized their 5-year-olds and that parents weren’t told about beforehand.

A mother who pulled her son from Grade 6 and daughter from Grade 3 at Rocklin Academy Gateway, where the incident took place, has kept a tally of parents who’ve done likewise.

“It was just the tipping point for most families,” the parent, who asked her name not be published, told LifeSiteNews.

Some parents pulled their kids “solely for this,” while other had “multiple reasons, but yes, this was part of everyone’s reason,” she said.

The controversy erupted after a lesson in which the boy appeared in girl’s clothes and was reintroduced to his kindergarten classmates as a girl.

Teacher Kaelin Swaney also read the pro-transgender “I am Jazz” during the lesson, which took place just before summer vacation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

While the issue of transgender is very real, and all of God's children need to be treated with love, respect and compassion, it is still relatively rare.

People who identify as transgender in this country are +/-
o.6 percent of the population

I can understand that a 5 year old could be very confused, and emotionally traumatized, by such information; and on top of that, parents should have had the right to know that this was going on in advance of any kind of a classroom session on this kind of material, to make the decision as to whether they want their child exposed to this or not, at such a young age.

Swaney and the board massively overstepped here.

Compsci degrees aren't returning on investment for coders – research

University in the UK has never been more expensive. But at least doing a computer science degree guarantees a nice fat, well-paid job at the end, right? Wrong.

Coders with a bachelor's degree only earn £3,000 more a year than those who don't have one, according to a survey of 4,700 developers in the UK by Stack Overflow, a community site frequented by developers for answers to technical questions.

This is despite the average degree now costing £9,000 a year in tuition fees alone. Average student debt is now more than £50,000, according the Institute of Fiscal Studies.

The research found that the median salary of those who did not have higher education was £35,000 per year, while those who gained a bachelor's degree earned £38,000 and postgraduates took home £42,000.

Professors told to report students who make campus ‘less inclusive’ to Behavior Assessment Team

As colleges across the country struggle with questions related to free speech on campuses, some schools have implemented policies that appear to give administrators significant latitude to discipline students for speaking in unpopular ways.

Most recently, the dean’s office of Utah Valley University, a public institution located in the north-central part of Utah, distributed a guidance letter to all faculty encouraging them to report to the school’s Behavior Assessment Team any students who use “inappropriate language,” are “argumentative,” or who speak “loudly.”

America's dirtiest, biggest student lender neutralized by federal watchdog

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, founded by Elizabeth Warren prior to her career as a senator, has entered into an unprecedented settlement with National Collegiate Student Loan Trusts, the largest holder of student debt in the country.
***
The Trusts are accused of widescale financial fraud, collecting on debts that they didn't own, or that had expired, using "deceptive or unfair means" and flooding the country's courts with bogus lawsuits.

The Trusts originally held more than $12B in debt, but $5B has already been lost to default. Trust bondholders will not receive any payments while the audit is underway. People whose debts are found to be invalid will not owe anything, and will not face tax penalties for "debt forgiveness." All wage garnishment and bank balance seizures will be suspended during the audit as well.

The settlement still awaits judicial approval.>>>

A few years ago, when Gary Lawrence and I wrote Rotten to the (Common) Core, two of our chief concerns about the whole program were (1) the possibility that the ultimate goal was to replace human teachers in the classroom with robots (a goal not, of course, ever stated explicitly), and (2) that the "individually-adapted computerized standardized tests" being touted for the program were not only building on the faulty foundations of the standardized test to begin with, but that the ultimate goal was to expand the surveillance state thereby, and possibly, to use technology for further mind manipulation and social engineering. To this we added a third concern, namely, that teachers would end up being nothing but classroom "proctors" and "robot maintenance" technicians.

Well, this article shared by Ms. M.W. seems to indicate that these fears might have been justified:

Enrollment drops at schools known for ‘social justice warfare’

Universities known for being hotbeds of campus protest and liberal activism are struggling with declining enrollments and budget shortfalls, and higher education analysts say that’s no coincidence.

Take Oberlin College. According to a document leaked to The Oberlin Review, the school’s student newspaper, the small liberal arts college famous for social justice hoaxes has had trouble attracting and retaining students, missing this year’s enrollment mark by 80 and racking up a $5 million budget deficit in the process.

William A. Jacobson, a professor at Cornell Law School who runs the Legal Insurrection blog, said the “most obvious culprit” in Oberlin’s dwindling admissions is “relentless social justice warfare.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why in the name of sam hill did social justice get conflated with "social warfare"?!?

Whatever happened to peaceful ways to achieve social justice?!? Did they just go out with the Whoopie cushion and the dribble glass?!?

And somewhere in a just heaven, Mohatma Gandhi is crying his eyes out!!!

WHY ARE US UNIVERSITIES ARMING THEMSELVES WITH GRENADE LAUNCHERS?

A program that supplies university police with surplus military equipment is enjoying a renaissance under Trump and Sessions. Most of the military gear is going to campuses in states with the highest poverty rates, where the weapons will be used not only to repress student protests but also to perpetuate racial and class divides between campuses and their surrounding communities.

Sending an ominous signal to student protest movements nationwide, universities across the US are once again able to equip their police forces with castoff military gear, tying them ever more intimately into the military-industrial complex.

In August, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced at a Fraternal Order of Police convention that Program 1033 would resume providing ex-military equipment to police organizations, including university police departments.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

ARE YOU FLIPPING KIDDING ME?!?

It appears to me that this militarisation of college and university policing is to "boil the frog slowly", in terms of getting students to accept that this is precisely what policing on campus - and in the rest of their lives - should be; that even the smallest of incidents needs to be met with brutal, overwhelming force.

And to all students and the parents and friends who love them, and happen to read this blog, "1984" was not an instruction manual!!</em>

CHILDREN HELD HOSTAGE DURING DISTURBING 9/11 DRILL BY SCHOOL OFFICIAL THREATENING TO KILL THEM

Honolulu, HI — In America’s modern-day police state, it seems the state knows no bounds as to how far it will go to keep children and adults in a perpetual state of fear. A recent lawsuit out of Hawaii illustrates the extent of the American fear culture and how its insanity is tormenting and traumatizing America’s youth.

For more than 10 minutes, middle school children were held hostage by a raging lunatic in a mask, swinging a hammer while threatening to kill them all. Naturally, officials claim this drill, involving a school official wearing a mask and holding a hammer while threatening to kill children, was done for the “safety of those children.” Well, Michelle and Eddie Chavez aren’t buying that excuse.

According to a report from Courthouse News, the couple has since filed a federal lawsuit over this incident.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Whoever engineered this lockdown drill should be sacked; unfortunately, because of a hyper-robust union culture here on Oahu, that probably won't happen until pigs fly.

But think about it; what these drills do is inculcate is a culture of fear and helplessness into children.

This is precisely the kind of dumbed-down, fearful, follow-orders, no thinking for yourself, mentality that those in the Bowels of Power in the Unhinged, Surveilled, States of Amerika wish to "educate" our children to become; as adults, it makes them more easily controlled by sophisticated propaganda, and more easily "sold" on things like wars, and austerity, so that those in the Bowels of Power can pursue their agenda with impunity.

FORMER CITI CEO PANDIT SAYS AI WILL REPLACE 30 PERCENT OF BANKING JOBS WITHIN 5 YEARS

Banks have already started to roll out automated systems.

While Vikram Pandit’s prediction is bad news for back-office employees, banks have already begun to use AI and machine learning in a big way.

From stock picking quants such as those currently under development by iBankCoin (to be rolled out in Exodus), to “robo-advisors” which handle client portfolios deemed too small to justify a costly human broker, to high frequency trading (HFT) algos, to intelligent fraud detection systems which detect and adapt to fraudulent behavior – banks are becoming increasingly reliant on automated systems.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The short answer is, the recent law school grad with $150,000 in debt cannot compete.

College counselors need to be looking at future job trends for at least 20 years into the future, in terms of guiding students toward careers that will actually exist when they graduate, and that is just the hard truth.

British Teachers Too Scared To Teach About 9/11 Attacks

Some UK teachers are too frightened — too frightened — to discuss 9/11 with their students because they fear a backlash from Muslim students and parents, says a counter-extremism education expert.

The UK Telegraph reports that Kamal Hanif, executive principal of Waverley Education Foundation and advisor to the Department for Education on combating counter-extremism in schools, said that some teachers — particularly those with a high proportion of Muslim students — see the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks as a risky topic for classroom discussion.

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.

“One of the sayings in our country is Ubuntu – the essence of being human. Ubuntu speaks particularly about the fact that you can't exist as a human being in isolation. It speaks about our interconnectedness. You can't be human all by yourself, and when you have this quality – Ubuntu – you are known for your generosity. We think of ourselves far too frequently as just individuals, separated from one another, whereas you are connected and what you do affects the whole World. When you do well, it spreads out; it is for the whole of humanity.” ~ Desmond Tutu, 2008

Democratic Rep. to introduce bill limiting free speech at universities

U.S. Rep. Anthony Brown (D-Md.) announced he will introduce a bill to limit free speech or “hate speech” at universities and colleges and force the schools to report hate crimes to local law enforcement.

His logic behind the bill is to require universities to demonstrate they have programs in place that will define for students “what is acceptable speech and what is not acceptable speech.” Brown said funding will be set aside in a grant for institutions unable to secure the resources to create the programs.

Trump education secretary Betsy DeVos tears up Obama's rules on campus sex assault investigations, saying 'falsely accused' need protected too

Dev Vos offered a lengthy critique of how the Obama administration had ordered campuses to enforce Title IX legislation, saying it had failed to offer justice.

'Schools have been compelled by Washington to enforce ambiguous and incredibly broad definitions of assault and harassment,' she said.

' Too many cases have involved students or faculty who have been punished for speaking their minds or teaching their classes.

'Any perceived offense can become a fully-blown Title IX investigation - but if everything is harassment thing nothing is.'

Scholarships for Undocumented Students

President Donald Trump on Tuesday began dismantling the government program protecting hundreds of thousands of young immigrants who were brought into the country illegally as children. Attorney General Jeff Sessions declared the Obama administration’s program “an unconstitutional exercise of authority” that must be revoked.

New applications will be halted for President Barack Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which has provided nearly 800,000 young immigrants a reprieve from deportation and the ability to work legally in the U.S. in the form of two-year, renewable work permits.

“I’m here today to announce that the program known as DACA that was effectuated under the Obama administration is being rescinded,” Sessions announced.

PUBLIC SCHOOL DEMANDS PATRIOTIC GLOBAL CITIZEN ALLIANCE FROM KIDS

Ask yourself this question, do you want your child to respect ALL people and ALL beliefs? As I explain in the video above, do we tell our children to appreciate the belief system of a Pol Pot who murdered more than half of the ‘citizens’ of Cambodia because he had a belief that he needed to purge the population to create a worker’s paradise? No, of course not. This value is about getting your child to think globally, preparing your child to accept a global citizenship.

Students fight university sanctions after protesting Israeli soldiers

Students are fighting back against a series of sanctions imposed on them by the University of California, Irvine (UCI) as punishment for chanting and clapping during a campus event with Israeli soldiers in May.

Administrators launched an investigation into Students for Justice in Palestine following the protest, even though members of the group say that they were the ones who endured days of harassment, including sexual slurs and racist intimidation, by the Israeli soldiers who were invited to give a talk about the Israeli army.

The students believe the harassment was an attempt to provoke a reaction.

Document Surfaces Showing CIA’s Plans to Infiltrate Academia & Change University/College Curriculums

There’s no doubt about it: three letter agencies like the NSA, FBI and CIA and the ones we don’t yet know about are full of great people who want nothing but the best for their fellow human beings. People join these agencies because they have good hearts, and want to see the world thrive in a state of peace, equality, abundance and freedom. That being said, the “disastrous rise of misplaced power” to which President Eisenhower referred when referencing the military industrial complex, has taken a hold of these agencies, which now comprise what’s known as the Deep State. The Deep State is a covert network of powerful and influential people who continue to manipulate, lie, and deceive the public for their own interests.

DOCUMENT SURFACES SHOWING CIA’S PLANS TO INFILTRATE ACADEMIA & CHANGE UNIVERSITY/COLLEGE CURRICULUM

The “disastrous rise of misplaced power” to which President Eisenhower referred when referencing the military industrial complex, has taken a hold of these agencies, which now comprise what’s known as the Deep State. The Deep State is a covert network of powerful and influential people who continue to manipulate, lie, and deceive the public for their own interests.

Oh, by the way, it’s safe to assume that the Deep State also includes, as mentioned above, the agencies we don’t yet know about. We know this from looking at history: The National Security Agency (NSA) was founded in 1952, its existence was hidden until the mid 1960s; Another great example is the National Reconnaissance Office, which was founded in 1960 but remained completely secret for three decades.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why am I not surprised at this move?!?

I would not be surprised to have seen US alphabet soup agencies in major acts of radically revising textbooks on journalism to show the consequences of "bad journalistic decisions" in actually tell the truth, when the truth damaged the Deep State narrative to the point of collapsing it all together. And whether these examples were true, or not, really didn't matter. Remember that prophetic statement from George Orwell's "1984":

"Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past."

So, because of my Christian Pacifist Activist stance (meaning: I am constantly exhorting my government to resolve its geopolitical issues with moral, win/win negotiations rather than through wars), my critical thinking capabilities and my insistence on logical answers which benefit We the People, I, and people like me, are now "the principal villains" to my government?!?

If, in fact this is true, the Unhinged, Surveilled States of Amerika are moving in a terribly dystopian, and dark, direction, and I fear greatly for those children who are growing up in this "new normal".

Martin Luther King Jr. – The Power of Non-violence

As an astute observer of history I can’t help but recognize that there is a pattern playing out again before our very eyes that we have seen before. A series of events that seam to be pushing the country ever further apart. This pattern is one of division and control. As I have said many times on my radio broadcast, the most effective way to bring this country down is to rip it apart from the inside. To have it tear itself apart piece by piece via the citizens themselves. It is for this reason I have taken part of an interview Martin Luther King Jr. did as well as parts from two speeches he gave and put them together so you can all hear from Reverend King himself about the power of non-violence in activism. His words echo through time from the 1960s straight through to today. We would all be wise to pay heed to what Reverend King had to say.

Adulting and the Dumbing Down of the American Grown Up

Waking Times

The term ‘arrested development’ comes to mind when pondering the all too often ludicrous behavior of modern adults. It is used to describe people who are stuck in a childlike level of psychological development, unable to grow beyond the behaviors, attitudes and dependencies that mark the pre-adulthood stage of life. Something is holding them back, or something is preventing them from moving forward.

People are paying almost $150K for a master’s degree in journalism, just to write fake news for the mainstream media

Would you pay nearly $150,000 for a degree that can get you a job with a median yearly salary of less than $40,000 in an industry that is currently experiencing a high degree of layoffs? If so, Columbia University’s School of Journalism will gladly sign you up for its new Master of Science in Data Journalism program.

The school charges $106,000 for the tuition and other fees related to the degree and $41,232 for living expenses. The notion is drawing mockery from established journalists like Chicago Tribune editor Charlie J. Johnson, who tweeted that “A $100,000 master’s degree in journalism is a stupid thing.”
