Education – The Greatest Fraud Exempt from Law

Yes, there are people yelling about reducing or gutting public education. Let’s get real about this. The two WORST areas of abuse have been medical care and education. Both are increasing at costs way ahead of anything else in the economy. Why? Corruption inspired by subsidizing from government.

AGAIN? STUDENTS ARRESTED FOR HANDING OUT CONSTITUTION

The lawsuit names trustees Steve Claywell, Jill Booth, Matthew Davis, Reba Harrington, Jonathan Byrd, Jule Camp Seifke and Patrick O’Donnell, and members of the management staff.

“The policy is unconstitutional for that reason, and also because it grants college officials too much discretion to restrict the content and viewpoint of student speech if it does not ‘support the mission of Kellogg Community College (KCC) or the mission of a recognized college entity or activity,” ADF said.

How tragic-comic has your life been under .01% US rogue state empire? With intent for humanity’s breakthrough into freedom, here’s mine

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

It could be worse; much, and that evokes my relative gratitude.

On the bright side, perhaps we’ll have the breakthrough into Truth and Love we all work for. I’m confident that none of my colleagues have any grasp on reality that excludes this desirable outcome.

But with appropriate dismissal of false hope to predict beyond what we can see, by any objective measure Earth’s environment for human self-expression of virtue is the inverse of what we’re told by “leaders.” Humans attempt to “live” under these tragic-comic conditions:

The US isn’t a limited government under the best constitution constructed, but a devolved rogue state empire chief among “developed” and “former colonial” powers annually killing millions, harming billions, and looting trillions. I state this objective factual claim as a professional educator, and among colleagues with zero known evidence of anyone refuting this Emperor’s New Clothes reality.

Vatterott fires president after he says he offered homeless student shelter in library from sub-zero temperatures

LIBERTY, Mo. -- He was only trying to be kind to a homeless man.

That, according to the former campus president of a Kansas City trade school, is what led to him being fired, while offering a homeless man shelter from cold weather.

Brian Carroll, campus president at Vatterott College in Kansas City for five years, says one of his students had no place to go. On Friday, January 6th, he allowed a student, who is homeless and schizophrenic, to sleep overnight in the school's library. The school fired him on Monday, January 9th, the next business day.
The recorded overnight temperatures outside Vatterott College on January 6th hit four degrees below zero. Carroll says that student had been sleeping in a wooded area near the school, but temperatures were too harsh that night, and the student had nowhere to seek warmth.

Antisemite, Holocaust denier … yet David Irving claims fresh support

Sixteen years after an English court discredited his
work and the judge called him “antisemitic and racist”, the historian David Irving claims he is inspiring a new generation of “Holocaust sceptics”. On the eve of a major new Bafta-nominated film about the trial, Irving, who has dismissed what happened at Auschwitz concentration camp during the second world war as “Disneyland”, says that a whole new generation of young people have discovered his work via the internet and social media. “Interest in my work has risen exponentially in the last two or three years. And it’s mostly young people. I’m getting messages from 14, 15, 16-year-olds in America. They find me on YouTube. There are 220 of my lectures on YouTube, I believe, and these young people tell me how they’ve stayed up all night watching them

Ron Paul Classic: "We've Been Neo-Conned!" (2003 Video)

"The modern-day, limited-government movement has been co-opted. The conservatives have failed in their effort to shrink the size of government. There has not been, nor will there soon be, a conservative revolution in Washington. Political party control of the federal government has changed, but the inexorable growth in the size and scope of government has continued unabated. The liberal arguments for limited government in personal affairs and foreign military adventurism were never seriously considered as part of this revolution. Since the change of the political party in charge has not made a difference, who's really in charge? If the particular party in power makes little difference, whose policy is it that permits expanded government programs, increased spending, huge deficits, nation building and the pervasive invasion of our privacy, with fewer Fourth Amendment protections than ever before?

Career Alternatives for Attorneys: Stripper?From the Bar to the Pole

When Carla graduated 10 years ago, she thought her law degree would be a permanent ticket to a high-paying job. But instead of selling her mind, Carla is selling her body. After student loans, debt, a layoff and unemployment battered her bank account, she now finds herself in an almost unbelievable position – dancing in a topless bar.

What Happened To The Law School Class Of 2010?

Poor employment outcomes have plagued law school graduates for several years. Legal scholars have debated whether these outcomes stem from macroeconomic cycles or from fundamental changes in the market for legal services. This Article examines that question empirically, using a database of employment outcomes for more than 1,200 lawyers who received their JDs in 2010. The analysis offers strong evidence of structural shifts in the legal market. Job outcomes have improved only marginally for the Class of 2010, those outcomes contrast sharply with results for earlier classes, and law firm jobs have dropped markedly.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Some Work in Pest Control, Lingerie Sales. In one famous case, a working lawyer quit her job when she realized she could make more money as a stripper.

Ransomware sleazeballs target UK schools

Cybercrooks are targeting UK schools, demanding payments of up to £8,000 to unlock data they have encrypted with malware.

Action Fraud warns that fraudsters are cold-calling schools claiming to be from the Department of Education and asking for the head teachers’ email addresses. Crooks then send booby-trapped emails with infectious zip attachments supposedly containing sensitive information.

Soon-To-Be Catholic Saint Advocated Ditching Child Labor Laws

In his classic sermon on 'False Compassion,' Venerable Archbishop Fulton Sheen targets child labor laws, and derides society's apparent obsession with getting a college education: "We ought to perhaps reform our child labor laws. Young people are not allowed to work on account of the law!? They're old enough to work, they're old enough to commit crimes! They do not want to go to school. We assume in the United States that everybody must go to school... So that college today, instead of being an intellectual privilege it's becoming a sort of social neccesity. 'You have to go.' Some of them are not made for books! Let them learn crafts..."

Threats to Assassinate Trump

Schools such as Marshall High School in San Antonio are allowing skits portraying the assassination of President-elect Donald Trump. Meanwhile, Twitter has revealed the so-called Democratic left hates Trump, calling him a racist and intolerant, but they themselves are far worse for they are intolerant of anyone who disagrees with them. The riots in California had “Kill Trump” graffiti in many cities including Oakland. I have never seen such hatred and violence coming from people who claim to reject violence and racism.

Police Officer Body Slams a North Carolina Schoolgirl

A Rolesville, North Carolina school resource officer has been placed on leave after a video was posted of him body slamming a petite teenage girl.

A full investigation is under way after the officer, Ruben De Los Santos, was caught on tape picking the girl up to his shoulder height and then throwing her to the floor in a move more suitable for a World Wrestling Federation ring than a high school. He then pulls her to her feet, pins her arms behind her back and walks her away.

I can’t think of any scenario in which an unarmed girl should be treated with such brutality by a man in charge of student safety.

The South St. Paul residents did not live to see any criminal charges against them. They were found dead in an apparent murder-suicide on an island in Washington state last August — shortly after they found out they were being investigated for sexual abuse.

Mandatory quarantines without due process or informed consent: Under a new rule proposed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, government agents will be empowered to indefinitely detain any traveler they suspect of posing a medical risk to others without providing an explanation, subject them to medical tests without their consent, and carry out such detentions and quarantines without any kind of due process or judicial review.

Mental health assessments by non-medical personnel: As a result of a nationwide push to train a broad spectrum of so-called gatekeepers such as pastors, teachers, hair stylists, bartenders, police officers and EMTs in mental health first-aid training, more Americans are going to run the risk of being reported by non-medical personnel and detained for having mental health issues.

School's new policy bans parents from walking children to school

Pick your child up from school and you could be charged with trespassing. That's the threat against parents at Bear Branch Elementary School in Magnolia ISD. This is the school's tactic to keep parents who live close to the school from walking on school grounds.

Bear Branch is losing students over this pick up policy, that's been in place since the beginning of this school year. The principal has decided that no matter how close the student lives to the school, the student must either take the bus, or the parent must wait in a long car pickup line. Try to walk your student off the campus and you could face criminal charges.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Does the principal own the neighborhood gas station?

John In Barbados Discusses Loving Others And Helping Out His Neighbors

John in Barbados Discusses Loving Thy Neighbor: This is a very lovely clip - perhaps quite different than when you heard John discussing politics. In this yet-unreleased clip which we are sharing for the first time today on the new site JohnInBarbados.com, John shares stories of helping others and explains why it is important. "I've worked on the premise that I've taken a lot out of this world, and it was about time I started giving back, so if me neighbors roof was leaking them get me equipment and go over there and repair the roof," he begins.
"...Being neighborly and helping people out, you get repaid 1,000 times, I'm telling people. That is the truth." This interview conducted by Ted Midward, took place in October 2016.

The Great "Fake News" Scare Of 1530

...
Gutenberg was convinced his invention would strengthen the Church, as the ability to mass produce books from a single original would eliminate all the small copying errors invariably introduced in the manual book production process. The result was the exact opposite, through mechanisms Gutenberg did not foresee.

It’s important to remember here, that through the media cartel of the medieval ages (where the Catholic Church produced all news and reported all news), that there was an absolute gatekeeper position over the narrative. The Church could essentially claim that something was true, and everybody would believe it. This is a very powerful position, being the gatekeeper of true and false – one that is prone to abuse without any opposition, or competition, in reporting. As it turned out, the Catholic Church would indeed come to abuse this power quite egregiously, and paid the price for it.

Study: Children 100 Times More Likely To Be Sexually Assaulted By School Staff Than By Priests

By John Vibes

In recent years, Catholic priests have earned a nasty reputation for sexually assaulting minors, and rightfully so, there is a disturbing trend towards sexual abuse within the clergy.

However, according to a long-ignored study, public schools are actually a far more dangerous environment for children, where students are 100 times more likely to be sexually assaulted than they would in a church.

This point is not made to take attention away from the very real problem of sexual abuse in churches, but is intended to highlight how the same problem exists to an even greater degree in public schools and is swept under the rug...

SCHOOL-TO-PRISON PIPELINE COMPLETE — NEW LAW MAKES SCHOOLYARD FIGHTS A FELONY

Dear Parents/Guardians:

We want to make you aware of a few new State Statutes that will go into effect on January 1, 2017, which may have a drastic impact on how incidents are handled in area school districts.

The way the new statue reads, if a person commits the offense of an assault in the third degree this will now be classified as a Class E Felony, rather than a misdemeanor. If he or she knowingly causes physical injury to another person (hits someone or has a fight with another individual and an injury occurs) – one or both participants may be charged with a Felony.
Gone are the days when teachers broke up fights and sent the kids home, calling the parents and perhaps suspending the kid if it was a serious incident. “School Resource Officers” or local cops now arrest the kids and, if there is any perceived injury (an arbitrary judgment), will charge them with third-degree assault – treating children cooped up in school as if they are violent adults on the streets.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is insane to the point where I would advise all Missouri state residents with kids to get the hell out of the state, or get your child into a private school now.

It has been demonstrated, over and over again, that when kids are given counseling and emotional rehabilitation, the outcomes are far better than those of kids who get jailed.

The Missouri State Legislature has collectively lost its mind on this issue, and wherever possible, parents need to vote with their feet.

The War on Whitey: How "Education" Is Fanning the Flames of Racial Division

Across the country, schools are causing even more racial division by teaching kids that being white isn’t okay.

From kindergarten through college, kids are being shamed because of their “privilege.” They’re being taught to feel guilty about their race. The education system is brainwashing them into believing that by simply being born to white parents, they are the problem with society. At the same time, by referring to white kids as “privileged,” isn’t it teaching black kids that they are without privilege? That they are somehow born “lesser” to the white kids? That they require some sort of special treatment?

Both of these things are completely unacceptable.

To point out the insane double standard, I thought it might be fun to do an experiment.

I looked for quotes and curriculum that denounce whiteness, and then I switched the around the races.

College Student Earns 4.0 GPA, Then Drops Out: “You Are Being Scammed!”

What can be done to alleviate this situation? Why do banks get bailed out (2008 Lehman crisis) for cheating the world, while students must continue to pay a debt? Why is a private institution (The Federal Reserve) in charge of this nation’s money and finances? How will students continue to be able to go to college when the price continues to skyrocket as the federal minimum wage stays stuck at $7.25 an hour? At some point soon, the masses won’t take it anymore from the banking cartel. The education system is in for some major changes very soon.

TEXAS CAMPUS CARRY 'NON-ISSUE' AFTER FIRST SEMESTER

Despite concerns from anti-gun protesters across the state of Texas, the first semester of campus carry went smoothly, with just one incident of an accidental firearm discharge at Tarleton State University. According to university officials at West Texas A&M (WTAMU), the new law allowing students to legally carry concealed weapons on campus, which went into effect in August, has been a “non-issue,” reports the Amarillo Globe-News. “It’s been totally a non-issue,” Knox said. “In fact, the biggest issue we had is we have to replace signs because the wind bent them. Other than that, no cases or other issues. It’s really not had an impact on our campus life whatsoever.”

A PATH OUT OF TROUBLE

Latune and Kiara are bright and passionate teenagers. Latune is the more artistic of the two — she plans to become a professional fashion designer. Kiara is the more pragmatic one — she’s set on becoming an anesthesiologist. They both have career plans carefully laid out, and are determined to get out of their neighborhoods and go to college.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Counseling, love, and structure are desperately needed by kids like these, if they are ever going to reach their full potential.

Putting kids like this in prison is the polar opposite of what society should be doing here.

Unfortunately, we have a lot of very broken (and many times, single-parent) families which need healing.

Sometimes, being part of a faith community can be helpful.

What I have seen, in looking at my own family, and other successful families, is that the more intergenerational, positive support and contact a child has, all the way through their lives, the more likely they are to succeed in their lives.

When kids don't get this, the more likely it is that, one way or another, they will wind up in trouble, with a rap sheet, and unable to function.

U.S. KIDS KEEP GETTING DUMBER; RANKED 31ST OF 35 DEVELOPED NATIONS IN MATH, NEW STUDY REVEALS

The U.S. Department of Education has just released it's latest ranking of international education systems (Program for International Student Assessment - "PISA") and performance of U.S. students just continues to deteriorate on both absolute and relative terms.

Perhaps it's time to have a real conversation about the complete failure of "Common Core" and the idiocy of allowing teachers' unions to hold our children hostage while hiding behind ridiculous contracts that grant tenure after 6 months and make it impossible to fire underperformers. Just a thought for the incoming Trump administration.

The Washington Post’s Valerie Strauss summed up the problems nicely:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The dumbing down of America's kids has been deliberate, courtesy of the Federal Government, and a system of alleged standards, under the heading of Common Core, which have failed, utterly.

When kids are not taught to be literate, both numerically and linguistically, they become incapable of critical thinking, which makes all the difference in determining what the quality of their lives will be

Critical thinking will also give them the capability to determine if what the US government is telling them is true or false.

That is not something the US government wants our kids, let alone our adults, to be able to do, because it lies to its people consistently, and it is best that kids understand this when they are very young, so as not to swallow its propaganda, but understand the narrative the government is supporting, and why.

Public schools have become a danger to the intellectual and emotional health of our kids; if you have any way of pulling your child out of public school, and either home school that child, or find a magnet school with a proven track record, please do it now now.

Your child will thank you for it later.

Lawyer: Students were caught up in Babson College 'witch hunt' following Donald Trump win

Two Babson College students accused of racist, homophobic slurs while celebrating Donald Trump’s victory at Wellesley College were cleared of the most grievous allegations against them in a campus police probe that Babson refuses to release, school officials told the lawyer representing one student.

In the letter obtained by the Herald, attorney Jeffrey Robbins — who represents accused Babson student Parker Rand-Ricciardi — tells Babson lawyers he is “gravely concerned” about the way the college has handled its disciplinary probe into the incident, which set off a social media firestorm.

Orange Coast College Student Threatened With Expulsion After Recording Professor’s Anti-Trump Tirade

A political discussion in a college class touched off a firestorm.

A college professor went off on president-elect Donald Trump in her Orange Coast College class.

There are now threats of expulsion and threats of legal action.

CBS2’s Stacey Butler listened to the controversial rant. The human sexuality teacher — Olga Perez Stable Cox — called Trump’s election “an act of terrorism.”

“Our nation is divided. We have been assaulted. It is an act of terrorism,” she told the students.

She added, “One of the most frightening things for me, and most people in my life, is that the people who are committing the assault are among us.”

That was part of the teacher’s rant about Trump.

One student was so offended by the speech, he recorded it with his cellphone.

She also criticized Trump’s cabinet picks, advisers and the vice president-elect.

“A white supremacist and a vice president that is one of the most anti-gay humans in this country,” she said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Good for this kid, to recognise propaganda when he sees it, and document it!!

If this kid IS really threatened with expulsion, I hope he gets the best pro-bono, first Amendment lawyer who will just rake this college over the coals in such a way as it hurts, badly, economically.

For Olga Perez Stable Cox, to express this privately is one thing; after all, there are people who believe they have received secret messages from Elvis Presley, in the mothership, and it is perfectly their prerogative to do so, under the First Amendment.

That being said, for Soto to make it part of her classroom curriculum, as though what she was even was even close to the truth, which I cannot buy, was an abuse of her power as a teacher.

That has to stop.

US students are getting worse at math as science and reading skills stagnate

Christie Blatchford: B.C. teacher fired for having the wrong opinion

A teacher at a posh private school in British Columbia was fired last month after making an innocuous comment about abortion to his Grade 12 law class.

Though there is no way of knowing, since discipline matters are shrouded in secrecy, it may be the first time a Canadian teacher has been fired not amid allegations of impropriety, but for having the wrong opinion.

New exam results may support Trump's claim that some American schools are worse than those in '3rd-world' countries

One country that continues to beat the US on the PISA is Vietnam, where the average income of a citizen is $5,070 yearly, compared with $53,470 for the US.

The results of the 2015 exam, released Tuesday, again support Trump's claims. The US remained flat in reading and science scores but declined 11 points in average math score, once again raising the question of global competitiveness of the US educational system.

When looking at a comparable sample of countries that participated in the PISA exam in both 2012 (when the test was most recently administered) and 2015, the US ranking fell to 35th from 28th in math.

Students are anxious about Trump, so the L.A. public school district started a support hotline

Virginia Tech Snowflakes Unveil Definitive List Of Top 50 Microaggressions That Offend Them

Multiple groups at Virginia Tech have collaborated to collect “microaggression testimonials” from students, who came up with roughly 50 different expressions that offend them. The examples are currently displayed on the “Microaggressions: #hokiesspeakup” Facebook page.

While the campaign lasted through the Spring semester, several posters reminding student to watch what they say still pepper the campus today.

Webmaster's Commentary: 


These kids are wholly unprepared to live and work in the real world! The only "micro-aggression" free place in the world is a monastery or convent!

Virginia Schools Ban 'To Kill A Mockingbird,' 'Huck Finn' Over Racial Slurs

A Virginia school has temporarily banned "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn" by Mark Twain and "To Kill A Mockingbird" by Harper Lee,after a parent complained that her high school-age son was negatively impacted by racial slurs contained in the books.

As The Independent reports, both To Kill a Mockingbird and Mark Twain?'s Adventures of Huckleberry Finn were temporarily banned pending a committee review, with the parent - Marie Rothstein-Williams, the mother of a mixed race child - suggesting a board made up of other parents and teachers from diverse cultural backgrounds determines a list of books that are inclusive for all students.

FLASHBACK - Pennsylvania schools spying on students using laptop webcams, claims lawsuit

America’s Math Scores Are Getting Worse

When it comes to literacy in math, science and reading, American teens are far from top performers, according to new results from an international exam released Tuesday.

American teens posted uninspiring results on the 2015 Program for International Student Assessment, a test taken by a sample of 15-year-olds in 70 education systems around the world. Students’ scores in reading and science remained largely stagnant since the last time the test was administered in 2012, but scores in math dropped to lows not seen since 2006. The PISA exam is administered every three years.

The United States posted average scores in reading and science compared to other countries in the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, an intergovernmental group of 35 mostly industrialized nations. On math, the United States scored below average, with scores of both top- and low-performing students declining.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF, in fact, the Common Core American curriculum is actually working, why are American kids' math scores declining?!?

The short answer, with regard to Common Core, is that it is not working, and America's kids' test scores are suffering because of it.

STUDENTS DEMAND "SANCTUARY" FROM IMMIGRATION LAWS, STUDENT LOAN DEBT, AND FINALS

Students at George Washington University, site of a recent walkout to demand a "sanctuary campus" to protect illegal immigrant students, say they favor defiance of other federal laws, too.

Several students said they would like to make the campus a "sanctuary" from student loan debt, while others favored exemptions from underage drinking laws.
Some students even felt they should be given a pass on final exams due to the stress of the election, explaining that "it’s really hard to focus on your studies when there’s so much else going on.”

Students across the country are asking for their schools to be “sanctuary campuses” for undocumented students, meaning university administrators would ignore federal immigration law and refuse to share information about undocumented students with immigration officials.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Yes, our immigration laws are very screwed up, and need to be fixed; and an excellent education, as a means to get a good job (and defining just what those jobs will be in the 21st century), should be as important to people as is breathing.

But having said that, it is obvious that those students making these demands have never, ever had a civics course in their entire life.

Because had they taken such a course, they would understand that national laws are not a "legal buffet" from which to pick and choose; but all are to be followed, period, end of discussion.

If these students do not like these laws, particularly regarding the educational rights of illegal aliens, they should be organising to work to change those laws into laws which better reflect their perspectives in this area, and make it a national campaign.

A Visual History Of Population In America


You’ve likely seen the population density map of the United States in one form or another. A lot of people per square mile reside in big cities, fewer people reside in suburban areas, and a lot fewer people reside in rural areas.

But as FlowingData.com's Nathan Yau explains, cities weren’t always cities though. Rural wasn’t always rural. If you look at people per square mile over a couple of centuries, you get a better idea of how the country developed.

How the Left Stole Christmas from Universities Across America

Every kid in America liked Christmas a lot, but the Left, north of Politically Correctville, did NOT.

While the holiday season used to be one of peace, love, and joy, it seems that lately, the politically correct set seems determined to crush every jingling bell under the heel of their jackboots, particularly at colleges and universities across the country. The Left is stealing Christmas just as certainly as any Grinch in Whoville.

Idaho Charter School Student Project Calls Colonial Christians "Liars, Deceitful & Self-Centered."

Concerned locals in Idaho have posted pictures of a charter school student project which demonizes Colonial Christians as "liars, deceitful and self-centered." The project has been displayed for some time in a prominent spot for all visitors and attendees to see. One parent asked "You have to wonder whether this "libertarian" charter school excels more at brainwashing than other public schools." At the time of publication, Thomas Jefferson Charter School in Caldwell, Idaho did not respond to a request for comment.

Are Environmentalists Using Native Americans, and Does It Matter?

On the environmental side, the motives are actually mixed. On the surface, the objections to the pipelines have to do with safety and pollution. Really, though, much of the campaign is about climate change. One leading campaign supporting the anti-DAPL protests, for example, is called #keepitintheground (the “it” being fossil fuels in general) and one of its leading voices is climate activist Bill McKibben. (DiCaprio, too, has been outspoken on fighting climate change.)
Anti-DAPL activists say they don’t want the DAPL built here. But in reality, they don’t want it built anywhere. Their real goals are combating fossil fuel development, moving America toward renewables, and mitigating global climate change. (At present, oil, gas, and coal comprise 81 percent of American energy consumption. Renewables comprise 5 percent.)
And that’s why they love to hate pipelines.

The Dakota Access Pipeline Protest Which Isn’t Really About a Pipeline

The activists air-dropping into North Dakota from all over the country, and even the world, are not anti-pipeline so much as they’re anti-oil. That’s an important distinction. While it may be within the realm of the reasonable to protest a specific infrastructure project, I think most Americans would consider trying to choke the domestic oil industry to death by blocking infrastructure to be an extreme goal.

Don’t believe me? Consider the website for EarthJustice, an activist group which has filed a lawsuit against the pipeline on behalf of the Standing Rock tribe and is currently seeking an injunction to block legally the on-going construction protesters like Woodley are trying to block physically.

The group describes themselves as “opposing infrastructure development that could lock us into decades of dirty fuels.”

College Students Demand Police Investigate "Suck It Up, Pussies" Post-It Note As Hate Crime

Apparently the simple post-it note was determined to be a "hate crime" by the college's "diversity offices" and students with knowledge of the incident were encouraged to contact campus police. To our complete shock, a message from Edgewood's Vice President for Student Development pinned the blame for the "hate crime" on Trump, saying that it is part of a growing trend of "covert micro-aggressions and overt macro-aggressions" that have "taken on new fervor in higher education since our national election."

Regarding triggered snowflakes and those who value themselves based on their ability to be offended: Don't forget about all those people who's job it is to defend and pamper the snowflakes. Their jobs depend on these snowflakes being triggered!

Potential Trump Education Chief Pick Betsy DeVos is Pro-Common Core, Family Donated to Clinton Foundation

Trump is going down fast!

Citing many of the reported potential candidates’ associations with ardent Common Core supporter Jeb Bush, Tuttle and Robbins note:

DeVos has served on [Jeb Bush’s] foundation’s board of directors. Among these “experts” from Jebworld are alumni of Bush’s Chiefs for Change (Gerard Robinson and Tony Bennett) and former members of Bush’s gubernatorial education team (Hanna Skandera). All of these candidates predictably support progressive education in general and Common Core in particular. Indeed, Bennett was booted out of his position as Indiana State School Superintendent for that very reason. Why would Trump even consider someone coming out of the environment on which he heaped such scorn during the campaign?

West Michigan Politics reported that, like Donald Trump himself, the DeVos family has donated to the Clinton Foundation:

According to a WMP analysis of Clinton Foundation records, the DeVos family donated between $60,000-$130,000.

The Quacking of Ducks

Here’s the trouble.

Most people can’t read… and so, can’t think.

Not quite literally, perhaps. But, meaningfully. They have been taught – very deliberately – to be sloppy and fluid with words. A given word has a vague, constantly shifting meaning – that meaning transmitted and accepted by a kind of semi-conscious collective osmosis. You “get the drift” – and the word is henceforth used accordingly. It is not necessary to formally announce the new meaning. It just sort of happens.

Examples include liberal and fascist.

College Snowflakes and Their Enablers

If one needed more evidence of the steep decay in academia, Donald Trump’s victory provided it. Let’s begin by examining the responses to his win, not only among our wet-behind-the-ears college students, many of whom act like kindergarteners but also among college professors and administrators. These college snowflakes and their professors see themselves as our betters and morally superior to ordinary people.

Schools and Colleges Are Making Students Even More Terrified of Trump

Anyone who has ever had a toddler knows that when your little one falls down, often, they look to you before deciding whether they should cry or not. If you rush over and say, “Oh you poor baby, you’re hurt” then the wailing commences. If you glance over and say, “You’re okay. You’re a tough cookie. Get back up,” then you’re teaching them that the proper response to falling is shaking it off and getting up again. We’re instilling courage and resilience when we do this.

We teach children how to respond to almost everything by modeling a healthy response for them, but our school/indoctrination system seems to have missed this crucial concept of Dealing with Disappointment 101. Their overly nurturing and politically biased response to Trump’s win over Hillary Clinton is making everything worse.

Basic psychology tells us that when we bolster someone’s fear by our response, we’re actually reinforcing that they have grave reason to be fearful.

Police Departments Say Pittsburg High Principal Participated in Anti-Trump Rally

On Wednesday night, Antioch Police Chief Allan Cantando addressed the Pittsburg Unified School District (PUSD) Board of Trustees highlighting how the District was downplaying what happened during an anti-Donald Trump protest.

He would now like the District to further investigate the incident and review their policies after Cantando provided additional information from both Antioch and Pittsburg Police.

Chief Cantando explained how both Antioch and Pittsburg police officers observed Principal Todd Whitmire participating and encouraging students during the rally–which last week PUSD Superintendent Janet Schulze and Principal Whitmire deny saying he was there for safety.

Schulze claims the rally was peaceful in nature which Cantando disputes.
