BEN CARSON CATCHES HEAT FOR CUTTING 'FREE FROM DISCRIMINATION' PROMISE OUT OF HUD MISSION

Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson is being widely condemned for plans to slash anti-discrimination language from HUD's mission statement in favor of language that emphasizes "self-sufficiency."

The revision, first reported by Amanda Terkel at The Huffington Post, was made "in an effort to align HUD's mission with the Secretary's priorities and that of the [Trump] administration," according to a March 5 memo obtained by Terkel.

The new mission statement is:

"HUD's mission is to ensure Americans have access to fair, affordable housing and opportunities to achieve self-sufficiency, thereby strengthening our communities and nation."

The previous version, which promoted creating "inclusive communities...free from discrimination" and is still on the agency's website, was:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I think where Dr. Carson "missed the mark" was not combining the two, self-sufficiency, coupled with non-discrimination.

But we have to start with the educational system, in this country, which is still highly discriminatory against children of color, as though they should be consistently satisfied with "less than", and turned out at 17 or 18 illiterate, innumerate, and unable to think critically.

This is why we do seem to have a permanent underclass in this country, created, very cynically, by those political interests which thrive on keeping people dependent on the State; that keeps those people consistently voting in one direction, even when that direction has had a miserable outcome for them, their kids, and their grandkids, if, in fact, they are able to survive the mean streets of America's inner cities.

Does anyone remember the magnificent film, "Stand and Deliver", starring Edward James Olmos, which challenged his Hispanic math students and constantly reminded them that they were descended from the Aztecs, who were brilliant mathematicians, and who were doing math a heck of a lot better than were their European counterparts of the same time period?!?

Every kid in this country, no matter their background, deserves a narrative like that; something to both challenge and inspire; because without it, they become lost in the system.

Although Betsy DeVos, Secretary of Education, appeared to be more than a little tone-deaf, as when she made her appearance at Parkland in Florida, perhaps she has the right idea when it comes to privatizing education.

There are private schools which have a very decent track record at helping kids learn better; Kumon comes to mind here, and parents who feel that their kids are "not getting it" in their public educational programs flock to Kumon and schools like it, to make sure their kids can compete, and get into a good college or trade school when they graduate high school.

Perhaps an institution like Kumon should be given a shot at running a charter school in cities where the problems are the greatest with education, places like Baltimore or Chicago. See what the numbers look like, in terms of kids actually learning, compared to the horrific failures most public schools have become.

But in this century, with the advent, and use of AI, coupled with automation, kids need an entirely different set of tools, when it comes to what jobs in the 21st century are going to look like, and what they will need to compete. Fast food jobs will be all but eliminated, with the advent of technologies like "Flippy" taking the place of humans.

Meet Flippy, your burger-flipping robot

All of America's schools, and those who cobble together curriculum for those schools need to be highly mindful of this.

WHAT YOU ARE NOT BEING TOLD ABOUT RUSSIAN SPY SERGEI SKRIPAL

By Ex British Ambassador Craig Murray: There is a major difference between Alexander Litvinenko and Sergei Skripal, which is not being reflected in the media. Litvinenko was a good man who attempted to expose abuses of power within Russia, in defence of the rights of Russians. Skripal is a traitor who sold the identities of Russian agents abroad to the UK, in exchange for hard cash. This may very well have caused the deaths of some of those Russian agents operating in conflict zones. If this is indeed a poisoning, there are a great many people who may want Mr Skripal dead – nor in this murky world should we overlook the fact that he must have known interesting things about his MI6 handlers. “Litvinenko II” is rather too pat and obvious, and could be a false flag set-up.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This feels as though it is actually written by a guy who understands what he is talking about.

Most Americans think artificial intelligence will destroy other people’s jobs, not theirs

Nearly three-quarters (73 percent) of US adults believe artificial intelligence will “eliminate more jobs than it creates,” according to a Gallup survey. But, the same survey found that less than a quarter (23 percent) of people were “worried” or “very worried” automation would affect them personally. Notably, these figures vary depending on education. For respondents with only a four-year college degree or less, 28 percent were worried about AI taking their job; for people with at least a bachelor degree, that figure was 15 percent.

A Stalinist Purge In America?

This year could turn out to be a defining year for the United States. It is clear that the US military/security complex and the Democratic Party aided by their media vassals intend to purge Donald Trump from the presidency. One of the open conspirators declared the other day that we have to get rid of Trump now before he wins re-election in a landslide.

It is now a known fact that Russiagate is a conspiracy of the military/security complex, Obama regime, Democratic National Committee, and presstitute media to destroy President Trump. However, the presstitutes never present this fact to the American public. Nevertheless, a majority of Americans do not believe the Democrats and the presstitutes that Trump conspired with Putin to steal the election.

911 call before deadly Missouri police shooting came from a different address, police say

Bill Lowe of the Missouri State Highway Patrol said of the “tragic” incident.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In Clinton/Windsor, Missouri there was a 911 call and the police went to the wrong address (to a different town, 20 minutes away from the original 911 call), which let to a gunfight, killing a police officer, the homeowner and injuring a couple other police officers.

Pence at AIPAC vows Iran nuke deal to end ‘immediately’ if not fixed

US Vice President Mike Pence vowed the US would withdraw from the nuclear deal forged between Iran and six world powers in the coming months unless lawmakers move to fix the agreement, and called US President Donald Trump the most pro-Israel president the country has ever had. Speaking to the annual policy conference of pro-Israel lobby AIPAC, Pence also hailed the recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital and said a peace proposal being crafted by the administration would not compromise on Israel's security ... "Make no mistake about it, this is their last chance. Unless the Iran nuclear deal is fixed in the coming months, the United States of America will withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal immediately," Pence told a packed convention hall in Washington, DC.

It’s Time For AIPAC To Register As A Foreign Agent

This weekend, 18,000 Americans from all over the country are coming to Washington to participate in the annual American Israel Public Affairs Committee Policy Conference. AIPAC is one of the leading forces behind the Israel lobby, joined in recent years by the ascending Christians United for Israel. Other Jewish "pro-Israel" organizations are niche affairs, representing particular constituencies on the left or right ... How can America's representatives declare that any other country's fight - even one as close to us as Israel is - is our fight, its cause our cause, its values our values? It's precisely this kind of overidentification that George Washington warned against in his 1796 farewell address ... It is time to require AIPAC to register as what it is: a foreign agent.

If there is one thing that AIPAC is good at it is using its $100 million budget and 300 employees to harass lawmakers on Capitol Hill and generate policy for the United States to adhere to. Eighteen thousand supporters have gathered at the city's Convention Center ... If you want to get some idea of the money and political power represented at AIPAC this year I would recommend going through the speakers' list, a dazzling display of precisely why the United States is in bondage to Israel and its interests ... Every American president has to bow before Jewish power in the United States ...

WHAT'S IN AL JAZEERA'S UNDERCOVER FILM ON THE US ISRAEL LOBBY?

***
Under the Foreign Agents Registration Act, commonly known as FARA, US organizations and individuals who work on behalf of foreign governments are required to register with the counterintelligence section of the Department of Justice.

A search on the FARA website shows that the Foundation for Defense of Democracies is not registered.

Al Jazeera’s film reportedly identifies a number of lobby groups as working with Israel to spy on American citizens using sophisticated data gathering techniques. The documentary is also said to cast light on covert efforts to smear and intimidate Americans seen as too critical of Israel.

Israel lobby groups have placed intense pressure on Qatar, which funds Al Jazeera, to shelve the film, fueling speculation it may never be aired.

Health Ranger: America Is On A Collision Course With MASS CHAOS

Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, has come out saying that the United States is on a collision course with mass chaos and civil unrest. History has proven that there’s only so much oppression human beings can stand before they cease complying with those who seek to control them.

The Health Ranger is refusing to go quietly after YouTube censored him by deleting his channel and the 1700 videos he created about health and wellness and government tyranny. Using a new platform, Adams says that the country is on a collision course with mass chaos and there’s little we can do about it except hope for the best and prepare for the worst.

“It will very likely erupt into widespread social unrest,” Adams begins.

Putin Says "US Political System Eating Itself Up", Explains Preparation For Nuclear War

Putin then changed the topic, and vented his frustration with the U.S. political system saying "it has demonstrated its inefficiency and has been eating itself up."

"It's quite difficult to interact with such a system, because it's unpredictable," Putin said.

Russian hopes for a detente and better ties with Washington have been dashed by the ongoing congressional and FBI investigations into allegations of collusion between Trump's campaign and Russia. Speaking about the bitter tensions in Russia-West relations, Putin said they have been rooted in Western efforts to contain and weaken Russia.

"We are a great power, and no one likes competition," he said.

Turning his attention to a particularly sensitive topic, Putin said he was dismayed by what he described as the U.S. role in the ouster of Ukraine's Russia-friendly president in February 2014 amid massive protests.
