SHERIFF'S OFFICE TO PAY $3 MILLION FOR INVASIVE SEARCHES OF 850 HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS

It's been barely a month since news came to us of the Worth County (GA) Sheriff's Department's search of an entire school's worth of high school students. Over 800 students were searched without a warrant, subjected to invasive pat downs that included breasts and genitals by Sheriff Jeff Hobby and his deputies.
Sheriff Hobby thought there might be drugs in the school, but despite the search of hundreds of students and the use of drug dogs, no drugs were found. A class action lawsuit [PDF] alleging multiple rights violations brought by some of the students was filed in June. In October, Sheriff Hobby and two of his deputies were indicted for sexual battery and false imprisonment.

In a surprisingly quick turnaround, there's already talk of a settlement, as Susan Hogan reports for the Washington Post.

On Tuesday, a legal advocacy group, the Southern Center for Human Rights, said a proposed $3 million settlement had been reached in the lawsuit, pending a judge’s approval.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Were I a parent of a kid who had suffered through one of these invasive procedures, with absolutely no warrant, I would pull my kid out of that school so fast that it would make the principal's head spin, and either put them into a private school or home school them.

Ever notice that when elements of the government declare "war" on something, it makes the problem worse?!?

Our country's alleged "war on drugs" is, essentially, a war on those drugs the government is not, itself, "pushing".

Look at the massive growth of the heroin trade, courtesy of a burgeoning opium poppy crop coming out of Afghanistan, with US soldiers actually protecting the poppy fields.

The little country of Portugal called it right in decriminalizing small amounts of drugs for personal use, and advocating counseling to those using; the numbers speak for themselves:

14 Years after Portugal Decriminalised All Drugs: Here's what's happening

Of course in this country, pigs will discover they are aerodynamic before something as civilized, intellitgent, and humane happens; there is far too much money to be made by the cartels; corrupt politicians; corrupt private prison corporations, who love the laws just as they are; and the banks which still routinely launder the drug money.

45 Pennsylvania Teachers Quit Due to Violent Students: 'I've Been Kicked, Punched, Hit & Scratched'

At least 45 teachers have quit their jobs in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania due to constant attacks by violent students, including first graders.

'I have been hit, kicked and restrained from behind - by FIRST-GRADERS': At least 45 Pennsylvania teachers resign in just three months due to student violence and those that remain are 'begging' for help from school board

Dozens of teachers have quit their jobs in Pennsylvania's capital city amid a wave of violence from students as early as the first grade, it has emerged.
The Harrisburg Education Association (HEA) said that at least 45 teachers resigned between July and October, and more have followed since. Those who remain are now demanding more help from administrators.
'I have been kicked, punched, hit, scratched. I've had a student physically restraining me in front of my other students,' first-grade teacher Amanda Shaeffer told board members, according to Penn Live.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF, in fact, these charges are true (and I would tend to believe they are), where the hell are the parents of these children, and why do they believe that their kids' behaviour is acceptable, for a second?!?

Why has this bullying of teachers (and most probably other kids) become the "new normal" in America's schools?!?

Social Justice Warriors Attack Classic Steve Martin SNL Skit as Racist

It looks like the social justice warriors are angry at Steve Martin again, this time for a classic skit he was part of for Saturday Night Live … nearly 40 years ago.

Martin released a song in 1978 called ‘King Tut’ and performed a rendition during a live performance for the April 22, 1978, episode of Saturday Night Live.

The tune was a hit, with the comedian’s homage to the Egyptian pharaoh Tutankhamun selling over 1 million copies, even reaching number 17 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts.

Why? Because it was a silly, funny song, when, accompanied by the physical comedy of Martin, was an absolute blast for audiences at the time.

Students attending Reed College in Portland, Oregon, however, saw the SNL skit and became immediately triggered. Martin had, in their eyes, engaged in ‘cultural appropriation.’

SCHOOLS ARE BANNING BEST FRIENDS TO PROTECT STUDENTS’ FEELINGS

Members of the royal family aren’t often told what they can and can’t do. But just a few days into his first year of school, 4-year-old Prince George already faces a mandate: No best friends allowed. Thomas’s Battersea, the school George attends, bans kids from having best friends,Marie Claire reports. Instead, teachers encourage all students to form bonds with one another to avoid creating feelings of exclusions among those without best friends.

The 8 U.S. Cities With the Most Expensive Universities

Aside from buying a house, paying for college is one of the biggest expenses most people will have in their lives. Whether you pay for it out of pocket or take out a student loan or other financial aid, going to college is expensive. Among the cost of tuition, paying for room and board, and spending hundreds (if not thousands) of dollars on textbooks, nothing comes cheap once you step on campus.

Why this Oregon teen is facing federal drug charges for a gram of pot

Devontre Thomas is likely facing federal charges because the alleged possession took place at the Chemawa Indian School, which is run by the federal Bureau of Indian Education.

Devontre Thomas, 19, recently graduated from Chemawa Indian School in Salem and is heading to college this fall. But first, he’ll have to take a trip to the federal courthouse in Portland to fight the charge, stemming from an incident in March 2015.

Still, many are calling it a federal overreach, given the minuscule amount of marijuana involved in Thomas’s case — enough for one or two typical joints.

How to make a Cheap and Simple Steam Engine

The Idea:
Recently I saw a video of a remote controlled boat powered by a miniature steam engine and was instantly hooked on the idea. After doing a bit of research I found miniature steam engines cost hundreds of dollars or require some very advanced skills and tools to build. Yet looking at the actual mechanism which allows them to run they are really quite simple so I decided to try and make one on the cheap.

The point of this project was really to see how cheaply and easily a miniature steam engine could be built. I built this engine in one day and for under $10 in materials so I think it's safe to call it a success.

This engine is 7.2cm (2.8") tall.

Sexual Abuse Allegations Raised By Ex-Pupils At St Paul’s Girls’ School

U of T profs alarmed by Jordan Peterson's plan to target classes he calls 'indoctrination cults'

Psychology professor Jordan Peterson's stated plan to build a website aimed at reducing enrolment in university classes he calls "indoctrination cults" has drawn the ire of his University of Toronto colleagues, who say it will make them the target of harassment.

"As a science professor, I'm not specifically targeted, but I still believe this website is morally wrong," U of T physics professor A.W. Peet told As It Happens host Carol Off. "A number of students and faculty members who I'm in correspondence with are concerned about his plans."

Professors: It's Not Okay To Be White

“Can my children be friends with white people?”

This bizarre question is the basis of a New York Times op-ed published Sunday, and the author answers it with a “no,” albeit with some exceptions.

“History has provided little reason for people of color to trust white people in this way [of genuine friendship], and these recent months have put in the starkest relief the contempt with which the country measures the value of racial minorities,” writes Ekow N. Yankah, a law professor at Yeshiva University.

Teacher faces sack for calling female trans child a girl

A schoolteacher could be out of a job, suspended for calling a trans pupil by the wrong gender while praising a group of students for a job well done.

Oxford teacher faces action over 'misgendering' pupil

A teacher is facing disciplinary action at his school after he referred to a transgender pupil as a girl, although the student identifies as a boy.

Joshua Sutcliffe, a Christian pastor from Oxford, admitted he said "Well done girls" when addressing a group including the student.

He described it as a "slip of the tongue", but said he believed biological sex was defined at birth

The school said it would be "inappropriate" to comment.

Children are Being Educated in School to Obey the Government’s Vaccination Agenda

By Christina England, BA Hons

Children around the world are being taught in school from an early age to believe that vaccines are safe and effective as part of their education. Not only is there evidence to support this fact, but there is also evidence that many children are being regularly brainwashed to believe that if they do not receive their vaccinations, they could get ill and die from vaccine-preventable diseases.

The Learning Network, which works in conjunction with The New York Times, lays out a series of lesson plans for teachers in the US, including a lesson titled Fighting Disease: Researching the History and Biology of Vaccines. This lesson in particular should interest the many parents who are unaware that their children are being brainwashed to think in a particular way when they send them to school...

The JFK Assassination: District Attorney Jim Garrison’s Case For A Conspiracy

In this broadcast from July 15th 1967 New Orleans District Attorney Jim Garrison responds to an attack by NBC News on June 19th 1967 prior to his trial of local New Orleans businessman, and possible CIA agent or asset, Clay Shaw on charges of conspiring to murder President John F. Kennedy. NBC News tried to discredit Garrison and his office in the minds of the citizens. In a desperate attempt at tainting the jury pool and making Garrison and his case irrelevant. Shaw was eventually acquitted by the jury. Be that as it may, Garrison was able to use his air time wisely and laid out his entire case for there being a conspiracy to murder President John Kennedy for the public to hear. He remains the only law enforcement official to bring anyone to trial in regards to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. To quote Jim Garrison, “let justice be done, though the heavens fall.”

Why Was CIA Coup d’état Expert Ed Lansdale In Dealey Plaza When JFK Was Shot?

Col. L. Fletcher Prouty discusses photos of General Ed Lansdale in Dealey Plaza on November 22nd 1963. Ed Lansdale was a CIA agent whose cover title was that of an Air Force Colonel and later General, who worked directly for CIA Director Allen Dulles. Lansdale specialized in political-psychological warfare operations, and manipulation of governments. The photo of him in Dealey Plaza on November 22nd 1963 reveals a deep level of involvement with certain factions within the CIA in the planning, operational phase, cover story, and cover up of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy in Dallas on November 22nd 1963. Such operations (Coup d’état) were Gen. Lansdale’s specialty.

In 2007, I wrote about his dismissal by Chicago’s Depaul University for daring to criticize Israel - the most sensitive third rail in politics, media and academia.

JFK Files: The Truth Behind the Farce

by Clifford Shack
(henrymakow.com)

The American people have been promised the release of all the classified documents on the JFK assassination. It ain't never going to happen.

But that's ok. Just connect the dots. Those of us who have, know, that solving the whodunit aspect of the assassination is just the beginning. The real, meaty story lies in the motive. Since the assassination 54 years ago, millions of published research hours allow us to piece the story together in the context of that time.

You don't have to be a rocket scientist to understand the basics of the case. Those with a minimal degree of understanding know that the CIA was clearly behind the assassination. Most of the guys involved in planning the assassination lived blocks away from Kennedy when he lived in McClean, Virginia.

What goes unappreciated is just why America’s leftists’ movement attacks the Founders.

If the leftists can convince the nation that men such as George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and James Madison were good-for-nothing slave-owning racists, then their ideas can be more easily trashed.

Professor Claims Math, Algebra And Geometry Promote ‘White Privilege’

A University of Illinois math professor believes that algebra and geometry perpetuate “white privilege” because Greek terms give Caucasians unearned credit for the subject.

But that isn’t the professor’s only complaint. She also believes that evaluations for math proficiency perpetuates discrimination against minority students, if they do worse than their white counterparts.

Rochelle Gutierrez argues in a newly published math education book for teachers that they must be aware of the identity politics surrounding the subject of mathematics.

“On many levels, mathematics itself operates as Whiteness,” she argues with complete sincerity, according to Campus Reform. “Who gets credit for doing and developing mathematics, who is capable in mathematics, and who is seen as part of the mathematical community is generally viewed as White.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

ARE YOU FLIPPING KIDDING ME?!?

AND SOMEONE GAVE THIS WOMAN A LICENSE TO TEACH COLLEGE LEVEL MATH?!?

The very last thing any minority kid needs to contend with is "identity politics" coupled with mathematics.

And yes, all peoples, societies, and cultures should be looked upon positively for their contribution to the development of mathematics and science.

Kids learn differently; and if minority kids are having a hard time with math, they need subject enrichment, and positive reinforcement when they solve problems correctly. Nothing succeeds like success, and nothing fails like failure, particularly for a kid; therefore, creating a successful environment which engenders real "cognitive wins" for a child who is struggling with math is key.

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.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

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.

From Tex Mex to Mex Tech: A Study of Northern Inattention

In America two narratives about Mexico dominate. First, chiefly emanating from anti-immigrant ideologues who usually have never been here, holds that Mexicans have low IQs and cannot function at other than a primitive level. Breitbart News and something called Vdare are chief among these. They don’t quite expect to find all Mexicans either robbing banks or sleeping at the foot of cactuses win big hats and a burro, but they come close.

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.

Why Big Oil Conquered The World corbettreport


Published on Oct 6, 2017TRANSCRIPT AND MP3: http://www.corbettreport.com/bigoil

The 20th century was the century of oil. From farm to fork, factory to freeway, there is no aspect of our modern life that has not been shaped by the oil industry. But as the "post-carbon" era of the 21st century comes into view, there are those who see this as the end of the oiligarchy. They couldn't be more wrong. This is the remarkable true story of the world that Big Oil is creating, and how they plan to bring it about.
