Flint, Michigan Tip of Looming Infrastructure Crisis

Americans have over the years come to believe they have the best infrastructure of most countries in the world. We have generously provided aid to many countries and yet ignored our own aging infrastructure. A few incidents over the years have barely scratched the surface of public awareness or alarm — until Flint, Michigan. After the shocking revelations of the water crisis in Flint, Michigan spanning almost ten years in jarring reports and stifled truth, several officials and to a lesser degree EPA have been reprimanded or in a few cases lost their jobs because of miscalculations, bad judgement, ignoring … Continue reading

California Supreme Court Issues Huge Government Transparency Ruling; Leftists ENRAGED The Federalist Paper Projects March 3, 2017 By Robert Gehl The California Supreme Court ruled unanimously Thursday that the public has a right to see emails and text messages about public issues on government officials’ personal devices. The decision ends a long legal battle and sets a statewide president for records disclosure.

Published on Feb 27, 2017 Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) on the Department of Justice reversing its position on the Texas voter ID law. Fox News AP February 27, 2017 AUSTIN, Texas – The Trump administration plans to abandon the federal government’s longstanding opposition to a key portion of Texas’ toughest-in-the-nation voter ID law, a U.S. Justice Department spokesman said Monday. It’s a dramatic break from the agency under President Barack Obama, which spent years arguing that the 2011 voter ID law that Texas’ Republican-controlled Legislature passed was intended to disenfranchise poor and minority voters. Danielle Lang of the Washington-based Campaign … Continue reading

Betsy DeVos: One Of Us? Or Not?

Since President Trump announced his nomination of BetsyDeVos as Secretary of Education, many on the right have spoken out about DeVos’ long-range intentions for America’s government school system.  True, DeVos has spoken loudly over the years about school choice, to help parents sidestep underperforming, union-agenda-driven schools.  But DeVos is also on record as a supporter of comprehensive federal standards for public pre-college education.  She carefully avoided use of the term “Common Core” during the hearing process, but it’s known that DeVos (with Trump’s apparent agreement) will push for some form of national intervention, disguised with a less-toxic label. Now we … Continue reading

The 25th Amendment – Leftist Mantra vs the Truth

Several leftists — both communist and radical Islamist fundamentalists — have been force feeding through MSM and social media the idea that Trump can be impeached using the 25th Amendment to the Constitution. I only had to open my email account to find close to a dozen references. So let’s look at that amendment to see how reality meets precept. Findlaw: Twenty-Fifth Amendment – Presidential Vacancy, Disability, and Inability Section 1. In case of the removal of the President from office or of his death or resignation, the Vice President shall become President. Section 2. Whenever there is a vacancy … Continue reading

Connecticut Woman Slams CT’s Governor on Immigration Law

Mother of woman killed by an illegal alien speaks out after connect Governor announced that his State will not cooperate with Federal Law Enforcement. The lefties are deliberately breaking the law and should be arrested.  As elected public officials, who swear an oath to uphold the law, they clearly abrogate their duties and should suffer the consequences. How is it that illegals have more value than citizens when it comes to the left?  How is it that the left can support illegals over citizens?  How is it that the left can even justify their actions?  It is beyond absurd.  As … Continue reading

Infrastructure and Vital Water Issues Are Not Just California’s Issue

Back over the last forty years or so at least, experts and avid followers have discussed, warned, and tried to make headway on getting government to issue regular infrastructure repair, maintenance, and alternative solutions to our vital interests. Only over the last fifteen years have we finally been faced with a crisis large enough to get attention. Droughts in the Midwest, sinkholes, temperamental weather, flooding, bridges and roads in varying stages of disrepair, economic downturns, food production reductions, water shortages have all come together in a perfect storm. Some blame it on the experiments going on with federal level weather … Continue reading

Trump and Congress Quietly Fulfilling Promises

  Congress was working quietly behind scenes as the drama of the Liberals unfolded in order to begin curbing the federal control of agencies who during Obama’s reign managed to seize control over the rights of states and local governments to govern themselves. For several years it became apparent that agencies like BLM, EPA, and Education had been allowed to write “rules” with Obama’s encouragement. These so-called rules were in fact usurping the right of congress to perform its constitutionally mandated function and allowing the agencies to “make laws” themselves. Rules in the several agencies were made without review, oversight, … Continue reading

Obama’s Connection to Campus Age Rioters and Organizing For Action

New York Post by Paul Sperry February 11, 2017 When former President Barack Obama said he was “heartened” by anti-Trump protests, he was sending a message of approval to his troops. Troops? Yes, Obama has an army of agitators — numbering more than 30,000 — who will fight his Republican successor at every turn of his historic presidency. And Obama will command them from a bunker less than two miles from the White House. In what’s shaping up to be a highly unusual post-presidency, Obama isn’t just staying behind in Washington. He’s working behind the scenes to set up what … Continue reading

Looking At The Reality Of Education – Part 2 Comparing Options of Educating for Families

Comparing Options of Educating for Families Here is a quick look at what Betsy DeVos has to come up to speed on quickly. Incorporating homeschool into the Department of Education thinking along with other innovations or methods may need to become a reality for our country and our budget.

It began in answer to a deep desire for people to know how to read, write, and do other things like … Continue reading

Looking At The Reality Of Education – Part 1

Looking At The Reality Of Education Today With all of the stupidity and lack of basic knowledge currently being exhibited by snowflakes on college campuses, it has definitely become evident that the billions upon billions of dollars invested in education since the 1960’s has been poorly used and taxpayers poorly served. Betsy DeVos finally and barely got approved as the new Secretary of Education.  Many Democrats and a few Republicans have questioned her ability and experience.  Certainly, it has come to my mind as well.  While she has been actively involved in education and politics for many years, I am … Continue reading
