Knowles: Dem Socialists Pushing To Infiltrate Schools Because ‘They Can’t Win In The Battle Of Ideas’

Radio host Michael Knowles said on “Fox & Friends” that Democratic Socialists are urging Socialists to become teachers because they can’t win a “fair fight.”
Knowles said that according to numerous surveys, “the blood-soaked history” of socialism is unknown by millennials, leading them to identify as supporters of the movement.

Smart Kid vs. Stupid Teacher

Everything this woman accuses her student of doing is exactly what she is doing! I’m proud of him. And really sad and angry for the students who have to accept this woman’s authority in the classroom.

Alabama putting God back in schools

Alabama public schools are hoping to bring God back into their schools by displaying the US motto “In God We Trust” on school buildings.
In February, the Alabama legislature approved a new law allowing such displays on public property, and now is giving schools the right to exhibit the motto as well.

The System at Work

The state of our education system is going according to the progressive playbook. Rail against individual achievement, forbid prayer, promote Islam and homosexuality. In the inner city, an alarmingly high number of students never graduate. They’ve been conditioned to shun responsibility. Most drop out at 16 and begin their careers as drug dealers, thieves, gang members and spawning as many children as they can. It is no surprise that these schools cannot meet even the lowest standards. Continue reading

School Daze

This is later than I’ve ever posted but there are some serious things I’m going to be getting to in the next few days.
Every time I see the way our educational system has left the path of practical knowledge and raced headlong into a full blown indoctrination system for little socialists.

Great plan, guys! Illinois Dems vote to replace armed security at schools with mental health workers
The Illinois House of Representatives has come up with a brilliant plan to secure the safety of children in the state’s school system.
The plan is brilliant for Democrats, of course, who lead the state governing body as it calls for replacing armed police officers in schools with mental health professionals – who are unarmed, according to an Associated Press report.

GASOLINE MAXINE STRIKES AGAIN
Maxine Waters: Kanye Talking ‘Out of Turn,’ ‘Should Think Twice About Politics’
“Kanye West is a very creative young man who has presented some of the most revolutionary material in the African-American community. … But we also think that sometimes Kanye West talks out of turn and perhaps sometimes he needs some assistance in helping him to formulate some of his thoughts,” Waters reportedly told Politico at an Oakland event with members of the Congressional Black Caucus that pushed for more diversity in Silicon Valley.

There’s a plethora of other items of interest. After the last post I had to shower because I felt dirty talking about that… whatever the hell you call it with the fright wig on her head.

Trump to pull feds out of K-12 education
“For too long the government has imposed its will on state and local governments. The result has been education that spends more and achieves far, far, far less,” Mr. Trump said. “My administration has been working to reverse this federal power grab and give power back to families, cities [and] states — give power back to localities.”
He said that previous administrations had increasingly forced schools to comply with “whims and dictates” from Washington, but his administration would break the trend.

Just sitting here browsing various sources of information and suddenly I’m up to my ankles in links. Maybe I should call this a high colonic for my queue. Make of it what you will.

California School District Says Parents Can’t Pull Kids Out Of New LGBT Sex Ed Class

IN CALIFORNIA THE STATE HAS TAKEN COMPLETE CONTROL OF ALL CHILDREN TO INDOCTRINATE THEM IN LIBERALISM.
California passed a law called the California Healthy Youth Act in 2015 to promote “healthy attitudes” about “gender [and] sexual orientation.” The law is meant to teach students about the “effectiveness and safety of all FDA-approved contraceptive methods” and allow for “objective discussion” about “parenting, adoption, and abortion.”
However, the Orange County Board of Education has decided that parents don’t have a right to exclude their kids from the class, LifeSite News reports. A memo from the Orange County Department of Education general counsel Ronald Wenkart on March 29 stated that the opt-out provision “does not apply to instruction, materials, or programming that discusses gender, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, discrimination, harassment, bullying, intimidation, relationships, or family and does not discuss human reproductive organs.”

Police chief dealt tough lesson after he apologizes to hip-hop crowd for ‘200 years’ of police abuse
With the City of Baltimore setting a new record in 2017 for killings per capita, where 86 percent of the victims and 85 percent of the suspects had prior criminal records, what do you suppose the police commissioner busies himself with?
Baltimore Police Commissioner Darryl De Sousa, accompanied by Mayor Catherine Pugh, took to the stage Wednesday night at a hip-hop concert to apologize for “200 years” of bad police behavior.
“I want to take the time to apologize for what policing did and I promise you we’re going to make a change in the future,” he added.
And while there were a few cheers, not all concertgoers approved, as De Sousa was jeered, booed and flipped off, as seen in a video posted on Instagram.

IT IS A FOOL’S ERRAND TO GROVEL IN FRONT OF SAVAGES WHO LACK REASON OR EMOTIONAL CONTROL.

Diamond and Silk to Testify Before House Judiciary Committee over Facebook Censorship
THAT SHOULD BE INTERESTING
The duo, whose real names are Lynnette Hardaway and Rochelle Richardson, will attend a panel alongside Corynne McSherry of the Electronic Frontier Foundation and CEO of the News Media Alliance David Chavern to “examine social media filtering and policing practices.”
Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), a leading voice on social media censorship who grilled Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg on the issue last week, will also testify before the committee. Rep. Blackburn recently received President Trump’s endorsement in her bid to become Senator from Tennessee.
Representatives from companies such as Facebook, Google, and Twitter were also invited, although it is unclear whether they will attend.

Sessions told White House that Rosenstein’s firing could prompt his departure, too

DON’T LET THE DOOR HIT YOU ON THE WAY OUT, BUDDY
Last summer, when it appeared Trump was going to fire Sessions or pressure him to resign, Republican lawmakers and conservative advocacy groups rallied to Sessions’s side and warned the president not to move against him.
Trump had told senior officials last week that he was considering firing Rosenstein, who was confirmed by the Senate with overwhelming bipartisan support last year. Since then, alumni of the Justice Department have rallied to Rosenstein’s defense.

GOP faces rural rebellion over Trump trade agenda
President Donald Trump’s trade policies are confounding Republicans as rural voters — his strongest supporters — stand to get the short end of the stick just months away from the midterms.
THIS IS FROM THAT SNIVELING LITTLE RAT BASTARD, JONATHAN ALLEN
Now Steffen, who didn’t vote for Trump, is a vocal supporter of Jane Raybould, the Democrat running an improbable campaign against first-term Sen. Deb Fischer, R-Neb. — and says he’s talked to a lot of fellow farmers and Republicans who have “buyer’s remorse” about Trump and Fischer.
While it would take a political tsunami for Fischer to lose — Trump won the state by 25 percentage points — the president’s trade agenda has boxed in congressional Republicans as they fight to hold their majorities in the House and Senate, potentially affecting competitive races in more than a dozen states.
They’re reluctant to distance themselves from a president who is following through on campaign-trail trade promises, whose support they need to drive Republican turnout and who vows his strategy will yield better deals for the country in the long run.

NYT Reporter: I Cried Writing About How Donald Trump Totally Destroyed Clinton
I’m sure you all enjoyed the endless clips over at Clinton campaign headquarters in New York City on election night 2016. The scores of crying Democrats stunned, shocked, and totally devastated that Lady Macbeth would never become president—ever. Yet, members of the news media also exhibited those feelings of despair. Cortney wrote about The New York Times’ Amy Chozick, whose new book about the 2016 election suggests that Hillary Clinton was fully aware that people thought she sucked. Chozick wrote that Clinton told a pollster, “Oh, what’s the point? They’re never going to like me,” speaking about her image, along with not being happy at all about a potential presidential bid launched by then-Vice President Joe Biden. If Clinton was referring to the GOP voters, specifically those in the white working class, she should have tried to do something on this front.

Democrats Lawsuit Alleges Conspiracy Between Trump’s Campaign, Russia, Wikileaks to Disrupt 2016 Election
DEMOCRATS’ COMPLAINT ALLEGES THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN COLLUDED WITH THE RUSSKIES TO HACK INTO DNC SERVERS.
TROUBLE IS, THE COURT WOULD ALLOW THE TRUMP PEOPLE TO EXAMINE THE DEMOCRAT SERVERS, WHICH CONTAIN A LOT OF STUFF THEY DON’T WANT MADE PUBLIC.
The DNC wants “millions of dollars in compensation to offset damage it claims the party suffered from the hacks.” Wikileaks published tons of emails from the DNC in the summer of 2016 right before the convention. The documents showed collusion WITHIN THE DEMOCRAT PARTY to prop up failed Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton over Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT).
Democrats insist that Russia does not have the sovereign immunity many countries have “because the hack constituted a trespass on the party’s private property. The lawsuit alleges that “Russia engaged in a ‘brazen attack on U.S. soil.”

Illinois Senate considering bill to give kids access to medical pot at schools
SEE? ILLINOIS DEMOCRATS KNOW HOW TO DO SOMETHING BESIDES IMPOSE OBSCENE TAX AND FEE INCREASES ON THE CITIZEN VICTIMS TO FEED THEIR CROOKED MACHINE.
The bill was brought to the floor after the family of 11-year-old Ashley Surin filed a federal lawsuit against the state and Schaumburg School District 54 for failing to include public schools among the places people can possess medical cannabis. Surin has been prescribed medical cannabis to treat seizures related to a leukemia diagnosis.
After four years of trying out traditional medications, Surin’s doctors prescribed medical cannabis. She wears a patch on her foot, which contains small amounts of THC. She also sometimes puts oil drops containing THC on her tongue or wrists to regulate her seizures.
A judge ultimately ruled in favor of the family later that month, allowing Surin to bring her medication to school.

Laura Ingraham Removes Guest After He Mocks Her For Losing Advertisers
LIKE MOST DEMOCRATS, MORONES IS A CLASSLESS PIG
“Enrique, I just want to tell you, God bless you, I really, I wish the best for you. But you have been so incredibly rude and nasty since almost the first second of this appearance,” Ingraham said.
“So to say ‘who is he?’ I’m sure he doesn’t know who you are,” Ingraham continued. “So who cares? If the conversation — which is why we actually invited you on the show, to have a conversation — about a topic that’s really important—”
“Where’s your sponsors?” Morones interjected. “David Hogg got rid of half of them. High school kids shut you down.”
ACTUALLY, HER VIEWERSHIP IS UP 20%… BUT WHAT DOES THAT MATTER TO A LIBERAL?

Green-haired turtle that breathes through its genitals added to endangered list
With its punky green mohican, the striking Mary river turtle joins a new ZSL list of the world’s most vulnerable reptiles.
It sports a green mohican, fleshy finger-like growths under its chin and can breathe through its genitals.
The Mary river turtle is one of the most striking creatures on the planet, and it is also one of the most endangered.
The 40cm long turtle, which is only found on the Mary river in Queensland, features in a new list of the most vulnerable reptile species compiled by the Zoological Society of London (ZSL).
Despite the turtle’s punk appearance – derived from vertical strands of algae that also grow on its body – its docile nature made it historically popular as a pet.

Betsy DeVos Tells Striking Teachers to Stop Being so Selfish
Teachers in Oklahoma have not showed up to class in nine days. Republican Gov. Mary Fallin approved pay raises in the tune of $6,100, but educators say it does not meet their demands. They also weren’t too happy that she likened their protest to “a teenager wanting a better car.” The teachers are on the march in defiance of school funding cuts and in support of pay raises of $10,000 over the next three years.

THIS MAY BE PART OF THE FUNDING PROBLEM:

New Yorker’ Calls Chick-Fil-A ‘Creepy,’ ‘Pervasive’ for Being Christian
Angered, no doubt, by the “ersatz homespun ambiance of a megachurch,” Piepenbring accused the restaurant of having an ulterior motive: proselytism and “glorifying God.” Rather than just understanding that the free market exists and that there is in fact a niche for enthusiastic Christians who want to sell chicken sandwiches, the writer took the same, stale path that the rest of the media has been parroting since 2012: Chick-Fil-A is “anti-LGBTQ” and full of “bigotry.”

Senator who called for Trump’s assassination demands slave reparations…counts herself among the beneficiaries
When you get down to the nitty-gritty of the progressive left’s “critical race theory,” which now drives race relations in the United States, reparations is the coveted goal to resolve all grievances.
Cue Missouri state Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal, the Trump-hating Democrat, who is calling for reparations for former slaves, according to The Kansas City Star.
Well, considering there are no former slaves alive today, the default payees would be current relations to the slaves — which conveniently includes the senator, according to her testimony.

David Hogg Will Skip Year of College to Focus on ’18 Elections After UC-Irvine Offers Admission

Hogg’s mother told CNN on Monday that her son “will not be going to college this year because he’s decided to take a year off and work on the midterm elections.”
TMZ reported on Sunday that Hogg received an acceptance letter from UCI that partly read: “Students choose UCI to make a true difference in the world, we hope you will too.”
After Fox News host Laura Ingraham tweeted that Hogg, who told numerous outlets that he was “hurt” that some of California’s top public schools rejected him, had whined about not being accepted to various colleges, the left-wing teenage activist immediately called on Ingraham’s advertisers to drop her.

This smarmy little foul mouthed punk thinks he can influence the midterm elections. Maybe he can. Every Republican should point out this is the kind of miserable trash the Democrats embrace. Apparently he’s never heard of Cindy Sheehan or Sandra Fluke. When he’s not useful to the left anymore he’ll stop getting air time on CNN.

“Let’s say that Donald Trump decides he doesn’t want to give an interview with Mueller, but Mueller says ‘Oh, but you will.’ And he’s subpoenaed to [be] interview[ed] [by] Robert Mueller. And Donald Trump simply says, ‘I don’t recognize that subpoena.’ This is a president whose behavior is different as president of the United States. He doesn’t follow convention. Who would force him to comply with the subpoena ordering him to do an interview with Robert Mueller?” Reid asked.

A George Soros-Backed Prosecutor Under FBI Investigation Indicts Republican Governor Eric Greitens—Because of a Dream
EVIDENCE? WE DON’T NEED NO STEENKING EVIDENCE! HE’S A REPUBLICAN. THAT’S ALL WE NEED TO KNOW.
Here’s the story: In St. Louis, Missouri, in 2018, a man was indicted for a felony for allegedly taking a compromising photograph of his mistress. From the beginning, the details were sketchy: the woman wasn’t sure if she’d seen a flash or heard a phone click. Under cross-examination, she revealed even more uncertainty. Turns out, she’d never actually seen a phone. She’d never seen a camera. She’d never seen a photo.
Oh — and she might have dreamt the whole thing up. That’s right: when asked by the prosecutor whether she had seen a phone, she said it was something she may once have had a dream about.

Unremorseful ‘drunk judge’ works 1 day in whole year, gets raise to nearly 200k, and then this crazy rant 
New York taxpayers spend nearly $200,000 every single year to fund the salary of an obnoxious “drunk judge” who as of April had only worked one day thus far this year.
IT’S GOOD TO BE A PROTECTED MINORITY
Rochester City Court Judge Leticia Astacio earned the nickname of “drunk judge” after a court convicted her of a DWI in 2017 for a driving incident that occurred a year earlier
WHAM noted that the state’s Commission on Legislative, Judicial and Executive Compensation recently approved a raise for all New York judges, including Astacio. As a result, the “drunk judge” now collects a whopping $187,200 salary, all at the expense of New York taxpayers.
“Why’s my name in the headlines?” she wrote Monday afternoon. “You’re mad because I’m a young minority getting paid.”

Woman Sues Owner of Pennsylvania ‘Trump House’ Claiming it Caused Car Crash

Kellie Roadman of Ligonier claims that drivers were distracted by the patriotic house — which was painted to look like an American flag, had a 12’ cut out of Donald Trump and featured campaign decor in support of the then-candidate.
Roadman is now seeking more than $30,000 from Rossi and did not name the driver who actually hit her in the lawsuit.

Trump To Replace Liberal Lion Of The Ninth Circuit
Fearing a conservative jurist would replace Judge Stephen Reinhardt, the liberal lion of the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, a prominent progressive legal scholar quietly urged him to retire in the spring of 2014.
Reinhardt refused the overtures. Months later, Republicans assumed control of the Senate, effectively ending former President Barack Obama’s judicial confirmations. President Donald Trump’s election forced the judge into an awkward actuarial battle, an increasingly common phenomenon as judicial appointments become highly politicized. He died on March 29 at 87.

Tuition Rates About to ‘Triple’ for Some DACA Students in Arizona
With the court’s reversal, some say their dreams of getting college educations have been buried.
“We are an asset,” said Karina Ruiz, the president of the Arizona Dream Act Coalition. “We contribute. For this state to not give us a chance to continue to do so, it’s wrong.”
Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich said that while he’s sympathetic to these kids and their hopes for higher education, he commended the court for cracking down on universities who were violating the law.
“It’s about time someone held them accountable, and that’s my job,” Brnovich said. “My role as AG is to make sure you’re following the law.”
