Today’s college students: dumber than a box of rocks

Campus Reform went to the George Mason University to find out how students felt about Donald Trump’s first 100 days… except that the actions and accomplishments they attributed to Trump were really things that had taken place during Barack Obama’s first 100 days. The result, sadly, was just about what you would expect.

Keeping Promises

On Wednesday, President Trump signed an executive order giving his Secretary of Education, Betsy DeVos, about a year to prepare a report on areas within the federal Department of Education that infringe on state and local education decisions and need to be eliminated.

“We know that local communities do it best and know it best,” Trump said.  “The time has come to empower teachers and parents to make the decisions that help their students achieve success.”

The Daily Racist

It would be an improvement in the conversation if the democrats had anything to obsess about except race. No facts, no ideas, no desire to work together. Just throw the race accusations around because they have nothing else. Frankly I’m convinced that their ham-handed tactics played a large part in Donald Trump becoming president. They don’t see it and they can’t accept it.

“Yes I’m Black. Yes I’m 17. Yes GOD is using me to convey a message that’s bigger than me,” she captioned a photo of the demure dress, which she complemented with black lace.

As for Morris, the Palm Beach senior is also a basketball star at Cardinal Newman High School, having been recently recognized as an “all-area player” by the Palm Beach Post. She will be taking her talents to Boston College this fall.

Maxine Waters Slated to Pay Daughter Another $108K From Campaign Funds

Karen Waters already collected nearly $650,000 to run the operation
THIS WALKING FELONY IS AS CORRUPT AS SHE IS DERANGED. SHE’S FUNNELED HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF TAXPAYER DOLLARS TO HER FAMILY. AND HER VOTERS DON’T CARE. THEY EXPECT THEIR REPRESENTATIVES TO BE AS CROOKED AS A DOG’S HIND LEG. THEY JUST KEEP ELECTING THEM.

Rep. Maxine Waters (D., Calif.) is slated to pay her daughter another $108,000 for running a lucrative campaign operation that pulls in hundreds of thousands of dollars each election cycle, FEC filings show.

Karen Waters, the daughter of Rep. Waters, collected nearly $650,000 to date for running the operation for her mother’s campaign.

Karen is in charge of a “slate mailer” operation for Citizens for Waters, Rep. Waters’ federal campaign committee. Slate mailers, or endorsement mailers, involve a candidate or political group paying for the endorsement of another politician.

Professor: Blacks ‘Screwed’ because Whites in Charge of Government

Remember when stereotyping people by skin color was frowned upon?

CtH: Remember when a Black was in charge of the government and did NOTHING to help Blacks?

HERE’S A THOUGHT… LET’S TAKE AWAY YOUR WELFARE, FOOD STAMPS, SECTION 8, FREE MEDICAL, AND THE THOUSANDS YOU GET AT TAX TIME AS A REWARD FOR BREEDING LIKE RODENTS. THEN YOU’D FIND OUT WHAT “SCREWED” IS.

Recently, at the University of Wisconsin in Madison, an assistant professor from the University of Pittsburgh had a political message to deliver to the students. Dr. Shanara Reid-Brinkley’s presentation was called this long-worded title: “Anti-Blackness and the Political: Millennials, Black Intellectuals, and the Re-shaping of American Politics.”

In her talks, she suggested that blacks had less liberty in America now that President Donald Trump had replaced Barack Obama in the Oval Office.

CtH: Professor, please point to a SINGLE ACTUAL EXAMPLE of this, please.  I’ll wait.

‘Icon’ Colin Kaepernick Named To Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People List

KAEPERNICK WAS ADOPTED AND RAISED BY A WHITE FAMILY. HE WAS GIVEN THE BEST OF EVERYTHING AND BLESSED WITH FOOTBALL TALENT. LAST YEAR HE CAUSED A STIR BY REFUSING TO STAND FOR THE NATIONAL ANTHEM. HE RODE THE BENCH MOST OF THE YEAR, WHINING HIS RACIST CRAP WHILE MAKING $11 MILLION. VIEWERSHIP OF THE NFL FELL ALMOST 20%. OFFICIALS BLAMED A LOT OF THINGS, BUT NEVER WENT NEAR THE FACT THAT EVEN PEOPLE WHO CARE NOTHING ABOUT FOOTBALL WERE SICKENED BY THIS RACIST CRAP. HE WAS RELEASED BY THE 49ERS AND NO NFL TEAM WANTS TO SIGN HIM AND HIS HORSESHIT ATTITUDE.

The disgruntled quarterback’s biological mother Heidi Russo criticized her son for failing to stand for the National Anthem in a pre-season game against Green Bay last August because he was protesting “black oppression” in the United States.

“There’s ways to make change w/o disrespecting & bringing shame to the very country & family who afforded you so many blessings,” she messaged on her Twitter account. The biracial Kaepernick was given up for adoption at birth and raised by white parents.

Five Killed, 26 Wounded In Chicago Shootings Over The Weekend
OBAMA IS COMING OFF A THREE-MONTH VACATION IN THE SOUTH SEAS TO MAKE A SPEECH IN CHICAGO TODAY ON HOW TO BE A COMMUNITY ORGANIZER. MAYBE THEY’LL HOLD THEIR FIRE WHILE THEIR MESSIAH IS IN TOWN… BUT DON’T COUNT ON IT.

CtH: Blacks were SO enlightened and uplifted by having a black president that they stopped killing each other for 8 years.  Oh wait.  No, they didn’t.

This weekend’s shootings bring the city’s toll so far this year to 973 people shot and 168 fatalities.

The latest shooting victims added to Chicago’s statistics include a 21-year-old male who was shot in the head in the Roseland neighborhood on the far South Side of Chicago. He was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Earth Day… 4/22/2017

On Earth Day, Hitler gets mad at Al Gore’s global warming hypocrisy

Trump Personally Works Deal To Rescue American Aid Worker Held For 3 Years In Egypt
WILL TRUMP GET ANY CREDIT FOR THIS? DON’T BE SILLY.
Donald Trump’s administration has secured the freedom of an Egyptian-US charity worker who was detained for nearly three years in Cairo.
Aya Hijazi, 30, was flown back to the US on Thursday night with her family on a US government jet.
Ms Hijazi, whose charity cared for street children, faced child abuse charges branded false by rights groups.
Her release was reportedly agreed before Mr Trump met Egyptian President Abdul Fattah al-Sisi this month.

Students vote to give blacks free tuition at Western Kentucky University
The school’s Student Government Association passed a resolution by 19-10 supporting slavery reparations for black students in the form of free tuition and free access to the public Bowling Green campus.
The resolution also recommends that the university create a task force to “assess the feasibility of test-optional admissions and geographically-weighted admissions,” claiming that some standardized testing poses a disadvantage for needy students and perpetuates inequality and “white supremacy,” The Bowling Green Daily News reported.
“We demand reparations for the systemic denial of access to high quality educational opportunities in the form of full and free access for all black people (including undocumented, currently and formerly incarcerated people to Western Kentucky University),” the resolution reads, according to the Daily News.

Teacher Allegedly Banned Students From Wearing Crosses

But allegedly promotes LGBT causes in class.
Liberty Counsel, a nonprofit litigation group that promotes religious freedom, in a letter to Hillsborough County Public Schools Superintendent Jeff Eakins detailed math teacher Lora Jane Riedas’ actions.
The letter claims Riedas told at least three students they could not wear their Christian crosses.
“We write on behalf of parents of children in the classroom of teacher Lora Jane Riedas, a math teacher at Riverview High School, who report that Ms. Riedas has prohibited at least three children from wearing Christian cross necklaces in her classroom, claiming on occasion that they are ‘gang symbols,’ “ wrote Liberty Counsel.

Snowflake Filter

During the summer of 2012, Chick-Fil-A founder Dan Cathy was quoted in the Baptist Press as saying he was “guilty as charged” when it came to believing in the biblical definition of the family unit.

Since then, the Left has engaged in anti-Chick-Fil-A boycotts, vandalism, performance art, viral freak-outs, and even an attempted mass shooting.

The latest absurdity comes from the student government at Duquesne University in Pittsburgh which fears that Chick-fil-A’s plan to open an outlet on campus will put students’ campus “safe space” at risk.

Meanwhile, another defender of the biblical family unit, Vice President Mike Pence, is scheduled to deliver the commencement address at Notre Dame next month.  Some students are protesting, saying he makes them “feel unsafe.”

Brit Hume tweeted: “Before long, these children will have to live in the real world.”

To which American Pie tweeted: “Can you imagine having to HIRE one of these emotional idiots? I shudder to think. Employers will need a ‘snowflake’ filter.”

This gave me an idea for job interviewers everywhere who want to avoid hiring snowflakes, without taking the risk of asking questions that could get them sued.

Plant some Chick-Fil-A bags in the trash can.

This simple device should trigger visible anxiety in anyone you really don’t want to hire by accident.

Chick-Fil-A in trash

If you really want to up the ante, add framed photos of President Trump and Vice President Pence along with an American flag or two.  🙂

Rapper allegedly gorges on $600 seafood meal on Gold Coast then swims off to avoid paying

A WANNABE rapper who allegedly downed plates of expensive seafood before jumping into the ocean at Main Beach has said he ‘wouldn’t go back’ to the restaurant because the lobster was ‘overpriced’.

Terry Peck, 33, was today granted bail after he allegedly chowed down on two lobsters, a baby octopus, 21 oyster shots and drank a number of Coronas at Omeros Bros Seafood Restaurant at Main Beach on Sunday evening to the tune of $620 before fleeing the restaurant.

You’ve got to be kidding! Foodies recommend swapping lamb for roast GOAT this Easter, saying the newly fashionable meat is tastier and healthier
Goat farmers say they have seen a 30-fold increase in demand for the meat
Animal is roasted in a similar way to lamb, but enthusiasts say it is tastier
But at £25 per kilogram, it is more expensive than top-of-the-range lamb

Some people enjoy leg of lamb for Easter. For us, it’s spiral sliced, honey-maple ham with gooey glaze, taters, DW’s corn casserole, and rolls. I think dessert this year is going to be jello cake.

LaVar Ball: ‘Slow white guys’ kept UCLA from winning title, Lonzo played hurt in loss

Have you heard of this clown? He has a son that played a year for UCLA. He’ll likely be drafted by somebody in the NBA. He has two brothers in high school and a real piece of work named Lavar for a dad (along with the required white woman, of course). His dad played a year or two of basketball and now deems himself to be the patriarch of a budding dynasty. He’s pitching a deal with Nike shoes for all 3 of his kids to the tune of $1 BILLION dollars. You read that right. He plans to act as his kids’ agent to negotiate his contract. He insisted on sitting on the bench for every game and making a blue ribbon ass of himself.

Connecticut HS Allows Boy To Run On Female Track Team: ‘I Do Hope I Inspire People’


Coaches at Cromwell High School are thrilled with freshman Andraya Yearwood, whose speed compared to biological girls makes the student a star.

Andraya clocked times of 11.99 seconds and 26.34 seconds in the 100- and 200-meter dashes, respectively, during the first meet of the season. Both times resulted in a first-place win.

“I have a spectacular female athlete,” coach Brian Calhoun told the Hartford Courant. “There’s nothing more to say. To approach it in any other way might create some sort of issue or conversation.”

IMAGINE… A “FEMALE” ATHLETE WITH A 5 O’CLOCK SHADOW.

Researcher: Teachers Should Allow Ebonics Because English Grammar Is Too Hard For Minorities To Learn


MRS. CLEAVER: ‘ I SPEAK JIVE’
To avoid any hurt feelings some people may feel by attempting to speak standard, correct English, Gallagher wants to eradicate the stigma associated with Ebonics — or African–American Vernacular English, a nonstandard dialect of English spoken by some black people.

“I want to center the voices of the people who need to be centered,” Gallagher, a participant in the UW-Madison writing fellows program, told The Daily Cardinal. “As a white-passing person, I have a lot of power and privilege that should be shared.”

Happy birthday to a great American

Booker T. Washington was born on April 5, 1856, the illegitimate son of a black slave and a white plantation owner. Following emancipation, he worked his way through school, eventually becoming a teacher. In 1881, at the age of 25, he helped to found the Tuskegee Institute in Alabama, a college for training black teachers.

Washington devoted his life to improving the lives of black Americans through education and vocational training, with a strong emphasis on teaching the life skills they would need to gain social acceptance, overcome white racism, and lead productive lives. He was often criticized by other black civil rights leaders of his time who found his style too understated and insufficiently confrontational. Washington’s formula for success for black Americans — education, thrift, and hard work — is what many black kids nowadays dismiss as “acting white.”

Booker T. Washington said:

“Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has overcome.”

And:

“No greater injury can be done to any youth than to let him feel that because he belongs to this or that race he will be advanced in life regardless of his own merits or efforts.”

And:

“There’s a class of colored people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. … Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances because they do not want to lose their jobs. There is a certain class of race-problem solvers who don’t want the patient to get well because as long as the disease holds out, they have not only an easy means of making a living, but also an easy medium through which to make themselves prominent before the public.”

Washington wrote fourteen books, including an autobiography, Up From Slavery, which was published in 1901. He was instrumental in raising the funds for and helping to establish thousands of educational institutions for blacks throughout the south. He remained head of the Tuskegee Institute until his death in 1915, at which time Tuskegee’s endowment had grown to more than $1.5 million, due largely to his efforts.

Keeping Promises

Trump said he was going to remove job-killing regulations and reduce the size of of the federal government and he’s doing it.  Yesterday, he signed FOUR bills toward that end.  I’m really excited about the two that get the feds out of education!

President Trump Signs House Joint Resolution 37, 44, 57 and 58

“It’s going to lead to a lot of jobs and be good for many, many people. … We have a lot more coming.”

  • H.J.Res.37 – Cancels the so-called “blacklisting rule” that has made trial lawyers rich at the expense of job creating American businesses.
  • H.J.Res.44 – Returns control of land use to state and local authorities.
  • H.J.Res.57 – Returns control of elementary and secondary education to state and local authorities.
  • H.J.Res.58 – Returns control of teacher preparation programs to state and local authorities.
