What Is Really Known About Organizations Who Guide Education Changes

  Have you ever noticed how information can lead you down strange paths? Or, how companies that appear to be important members of the liberalist agenda manage to stealthily go about their objectives without making waves or being highlighted in media? Case in point: A decision to research universities where liberal students demand lists of bizarre things, or where they are falling into the liberalist trap laid to curtail free speech or how they have become so left-leaning over the years… …Led me to Association of American Colleges & Universities which bills itself as “A Voice and a force for … Continue reading

Another Obama Regime Screw-Up That’ll Cost You & Me Big Bucks

Be thankful for Judicial Watch!  Here’s a timely report, coming as it does during the debate over government-managed health care.  You probably won’t be surprised to learn that the student loan program, federalized by the Obama Regime, is upside-down financially.  You may, however, be surprised when you find out that King Putt’s minions made a “coding error” that masks the failure of a majority of borrowers to keep their loan repayments current, and conceals the true magnitude of the multi-billion dollar loss now confronting American taxpayers.  Y’see, the Puttster could mask information that might damage HIM … but he deliberately … Continue reading

New York About to Eliminate Test Meant to See if Teachers Can Read… because RAAAACISM!

By Warner Todd Huston March 13, 2017 There would have been a day when a story saying that teachers were about to be excused from requirements that they be able to read just to avoid charges of racism would have been an entry in an issue of the National Lampoon or even on TheOnion.com. But today, in this day of truly insane liberalism, the idea that liberals don’t care if teachers can read just to avoid charges of racism in hiring is… well, sadly, it’s not even a little surprising. New York’s Board of Regents is expected to adopt the … Continue reading

Life At University And In The Bureaucracy: The Department Of Nice

Prolly the best take-down of the modern American university environment, and of federal bureaucracies, that I have ever read.  Courtesy of TheZMan blog, 9 March 2017.  Enjoy! The Department of Nice The other day, I was at the Department of Nice. It is in the Imperial Capital area and while it is not a very pleasant commute, once you are there, it is very nice. It’s still technically winter here, but the weather was very mild, in the 60’s with a gentle breeze. Many of the nice people, who work in the Department of Nice, took advantage of the nice … Continue reading

The Black American Community Should Be Excited By The Latest Trump Executive Order

  For the many Black Americans who supported Trump, the latest executive order should be vindication for their choice for president and encouragement that Trump was not like past politicians simply paying “lip service” to get votes. In this executive order, he has made obvious his determination to fulfill his promises to leaders in the Black American communities and young Black students whom he feels deserve the right to reach their full potential through expanded educational opportunities. NBC Exclusive March 1st by Lauren Victoria Burke “Exclusive: Omarosa Manigault on Trump’s Executive Order on HBCUs”. Over 60 HBCU Presidents this week … 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

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 is also a starting point on how parents need to be evaluating their children’s educational options. Public education is for everyone regardless of ability to pay, disability, and other issues. 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

An Open Letter To America And Her New President

By Dave Merrick —— Bio and Archives December 31, 2016 Years ago in a Wal-Mart, I was walking past the toy department. A screaming four year-old was demanding that his mom buy him the little car set he had opened and scattered all over the floor. After the young mother had several times declined and asked him to come along with her, the boy threw one of the toys at her, leaving a cut on her forehead. The rattled mom stood there and began slowly counting as some parents do before administering discipline. After she got to ‘five’, the kid … Continue reading

Public Education Is A Money Pit

where money goes in and shit comes out. That is, unless you are a rich elitist like Obama (and the rest of the elitists) who can send HIS/THEIR kids to the finest schools that money can buy while being against school vouchers for the rest of us deplorables. EXCERPT:  “Since World War II, inflation-adjusted spending per student in American public schools has increased by 663 percent. Where did all of that money go? One place it went was to hire more personnel. Between 1950 and 2009, American public schools experienced a 96 percent increase in student population. During that time, … Continue reading

You Rotten Communist Russian Spies – Have You No Shame?

An Initial Set of Sites That Reliably Echo Russian Propaganda We have used a combination of manual and automated analysis, including analysis of content, timing, technical indicators, and other reporting, in order to initially identify (“red-flag”) the following as Russian propaganda outlets. We then confirmed our initial assessment by applying whatever criteria we did not originally employ during the red-flag process, and we reevaluate our findings as needed.  Please note that our criteria are behavioral. That means the characteristics of the propaganda outlets we identify are motivation-agnostic. For purposes of this definition it does not matter whether the sites listed here … Continue reading

Progressives Are The Enemies of Freedom and Liberty

It must be noted, learned, and as Hanoi John Fonda Kerry said, “seared into our brains,” that our liberty, our freedom, the Bill of Rights and the Constitution come from Natural Rights, i.e., freedom of speech, and thus, the Creator. This freedom, if you will, then follows a path to a free people, a free nation, religious freedom, and then a people self-governed. When these ingredients are combined in the proper formula, they yield a nation steeped in prosperity with an overflowing abundance for one and all, in the American dream. The Progressives, on the other hand, not only outright … Continue reading

BLM and Higher Education – Political Platform For The Rich and Infamous

“Ideological billionaires sway universities’ agendas with big bucks” – Washington Times August 26, 2015 “Donors have always given to causes they believe in.  When John D. Rockefeller gave to the University of Chicago back in the 1890s, people were terrified at the time, whether or not that was ideologically motivated, if it could be dangerous, but it’s turned out to be one of the best schools of social sciences in the country and hasn’t done harm,” said Angela Seaworth, the director of the Center for Philanthropy and Nonprofit Leadership at Rice University, when questioned if billionaires giving to higher-education was … Continue reading

Is there a Coup in the Works?

Not long ago Stephen Coonts put out a new book. LIBERTY’S LAST STAND. Islamic terrorists lit the fuse…but a treacherous president planted the bomb. With the nation in shock over a series of Islamist outrages (shooting up a Catholic grade school and a baseball game are just two of them) by “refugees”, the president of the United States – Barry Soetoro – imposes martial law, cancels the imminent presidential election, and suspends the Constitution. In response, Texas secedes—and what follows is the bloodiest, most harrowing internal insurrection since the Civil War. The purges that follow arrest thousands of people, including … Continue reading

Pedophilia – the Next Sexual Rights Revolution?

  JEROME R. CORSI NEW YORK – The underlying assumption that has led to the increasing legitimization of same-sex marriage is now fueling a growing effort in academic circles to mainstream pedophilia. Once considered taboo, psychologists are beginning to walk down the same path LGBT activists established more than 50 years ago, insisting that pedophilia is an inborn “sexual orientation,” not a learned sexual behavior. If people are born with a sexual attraction to minors, the argument goes, their “orientation” should be accepted as normative and not stigmatized. James Cantor, Ph.D., a clinical psychologist in the Law and Mental Health … Continue reading

DANGER: Gulen Charter Schools and the Fethullah Gulen Movement

By Diane Kepus May 21, 2016 NewsWithViews.com “The charter school experiment has resulted in the United States being the only country in the world where the Gülen Movement has been able to establish schools fully funded by the host country’s taxpayers.” -The Joke’s on US!   The world should never forget “Islam is a Human time bomb ignited by a hair trigger called hatred – them toward us”. The Gulen Charter schools and the Gulen Movement must be removed from the United States. I recently wrote an article regarding the CIA’s role in allowing Sheikh Mohammed Fethullah Gulen into this … Continue reading

CAIR Demanding SDSU President Resign After He Defended Free Speech

BY SEATTLE4TRUTH · MAY 16, 2016 A while ago a Jewish group posted some posters around campus claiming that the Israeli divestment groups had links to terrorists. CAIR, the Council of American-Islamic relations, and some students freaked the fuck out, and in response the president of the school said that he wasn’t going to ban the posters because the Jewish group had a right to free speech. Naturally, an Islamist group like CAIR loathes free speech, so now they’re trying to get him canned for his support of the first amendment at a state-run, public university. And this isn’t just … Continue reading
