Have nothing to do with the [evil] things that people do, things that belong to the darkness. Instead, bring them out to the light... [For] when all things are brought out into the light, then their true nature is clearly revealed...

Chinese Communist Propaganda Piece in Iowa Paper Could Backfire

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Wednesday, September 26, 2018:  

David Skidmore, a political science professor at Drake University, took one look at the propaganda piece inserted into Sunday’s edition of the Des Moines Register and said the effort by the Chinese communist government to sway Iowa soybean and sorghum farmers in the November midterm elections “could backfire,” adding that readers of the piece “may not appreciate trying to be manipulated by a foreign government.”

The insert, a four-page supplement to Sunday’s edition,

Koch Brothers Launch Big-money Campaign Against Trump Tariffs

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Friday, June 21, 2018: 

The Koch brothers, head of the enormous multinational corporation founded by their father 75 years ago, launched a two-pronged attack against President Trump’s tariff policies on Wednesday: a six-figure television ad now running in the Washington, D.C. market coupled with a letter to every member of Congress demanding they rescind powers they gave to the executive branch concerning regulation of commerce with foreign nations.

The announcement of the brothers’ multi-million dollar campaign in early June seemed innocuous enough, with James Davis, executive vice president of Freedom Partners (part of the Koch network) stating:

Western Conservative Summit Draws Attacks From Far-left Groups

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Monday, June 11, 2018:  

A few thousand conservatives from around the country descended on Denver, Colorado over the weekend to hear numerous prominent conservative speakers and politicians at the annual Western Conservative Summit (WCS) — touted as “the largest gathering of conservatives outside Washington, D.C.” — to attend workshops, and generally to enjoy friendly company of those with similar ideologies.

The event also drew scurrilous and borderline libelous attacks from such far-left groups as The Young Turks (TYT) and the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC).

In the past, the WCS has used themes such as “Freedom’s New Day” in 2013, “American at its Best” in 2014, and “Your Story: Freedom Alive” in 2015. This year the theme was “Fortifying Freedom,” an obvious reference to the new administration that is working to expand freedoms through regulatory rollbacks and tax cuts through tax reform.

Accordingly, this year’s summit, organized by the Centennial Institute and Colorado Christian University, was addressed by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, EPA director Scott Pruitt, former Attorney General Edwin Meese, and a number of current legislators including Republican House members Ken Buck from Colorado and North Carolina’s Mark Meadows, chairman of the House’s Freedom Caucus. Diamond and Silk, the live-stream video bloggers and social-media personalities, lit up the audience, according to those in attendance, in their lively support of Donald Trump’s presidency.

According to Blair Miller, a reporter tasked by Denver’s Channel 7 News to attend the conference, Attorney General Sessions delighted the crowd by reminding them that “elections have consequences,” directing his ire at the MS-13 gang, supporting religious freedom, and pleasing his audience by affirming that, in the Trump administration, they will not be called “deplorables or bitter clingers anymore.”

Sessions also referred to the move he announced on Thursday that he wouldn’t defend the constitutionality of ObamaCare in a suit being brought by several states: “It’s a rare step,” he declared, “but one I felt was necessary when it comes to this law — a monumental law of historical government proportions that moved the entire healthcare system and the entire economy in America.”

He touted several victories and promised to keep up the pressure, stating, “In the Trump era, we’ve already seen a historic string of victories for conservatives and the American people. We are going to keep up this pace. We are not slowing down. We are determined to keep winning, and winning, and winning!”

EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt also touted various environmental rollbacks of rules that he said were too restrictive, and pushed “federalism” — cooperation between states and the federal government — as a way to resolve environmental issues: “We must as an agency embody that partnership, that federalism concept, to make sure we advance these principles. So we have given a rebirth to the rule of law, a rebirth to process, and we’ve renewed our focus…. We’re going to engage in true federalism and partnering together to improve air quality and water quality. A one-size-fits-all strategy with respect to these issues does not work.”

The summit drew the attention of the SPLC, which noted that the lineup of speakers and workshop leaders would be “rhetorical hardliners and members of the new generation of far-right social media propagandists.” In particular, the SPLC singled out Sessions: “Attorney General Jeff Sessions, well known for his anti-immigrant positions and policies as well as ties to anti-LGBT hate group Alliance Defending Freedom (which is also well-represented at this year’s WCS), is the scheduled headliner — assuming he still has a job at the end of a week where President Trump has attacked him once again on Twitter.”

It attacked Turning Point USA, the conservative student group founded in 2012 by Charlie Kirk, whose mission is to “educate students about true free market values,” by attempting to link the group to racists:

The new generation of hard-right social media conservatives will be well-represented alongside the old guard. At least three representatives of Turning Point USA, the nationwide conservative college organization which regularly flirts with the racist alt-right, are listed as scheduled speakers at WCS, including its founder, Charlie Kirk, and communications director Candace Owens, in the news recently for being Kanye West’s far-right red-pill supplier.

The SPLC is notorious for promoting the idea that the United States is racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, and Islamophobic. Accordingly, it tracks groups that appear to be guilty of such sins, in its own opinion, on its list of “hate groups.” It qualifies for 27 pages of tightly-drawn commentary at DiscoverTheNetworks.com, which notes:

Many of the organizations targeted by SPLC are not “hate” groups in any legitimate sense of the word. Rather, they are thoughtful, articulate conveyors of conservative values and principles that are anathema to SPLC, and their inclusion in SPLC’s list of “hate groups” constitutes an egregious libel that is based on nothing more than SPLC’s intolerance for ideas with which it does not agree.

 

SPLC senior fellow Mark Potok actually acknowledged this himself when he stated that his organization’s blacklists have “nothing to do with criminality or violence or any kind of guess we’re making about ‘this group could be dangerous.’ It’s strictly ideological.”

 

By conflating actual hate groups on the one hand, with respectable conservative organizations on the other — and thereby giving the impression that conservative values are somehow inherently hateful, racist, or otherwise repugnant — SPLC seeks to shut down debate, shut down free speech, and delegitimize conservatives as odious monsters whose viewpoints do not even merit a fair hearing.

But SPLC’s spite paled in comparison to the screed published by The Young Turks, which from the very first paragraph of its attack was a lie: “At least two Trump administration cabinet members will be speaking on Friday at a conservative summit cosponsored by the John Birch Society, the notorious right-wing group that became one of the leading organized forces in modern American history advocating for systemic racism.”

Alex Kotch, the writer for TYT, needs to check his facts. The John Birch Society, and its sister organization, the Law Enforcement Charitable Foundation (LECF), Inc., had two tables in the exhibit hall. But other than that it was far from “cosponsoring” the Denver event. As for the scurrilous lie about the society “advocating for systemic racism”, Kotch may have crossed the line that separates uninformed opinion from libel.

Kotch went on to say: “In addition to the John Birch Society, a notable sponsor is the far-right campus activist group Turning Point USA, led by Charlie Kirk and Candace Owens, both of whom are speaking at the conference. The organization has a history of hiring racist, upper-level employees.”

None of these left-wing rants seemed to impress the audience which was, according to observers, generous in its applause and attentive in the workshops. For the John Birch Society, its table was visited by dozens of attendees with at least eight of them getting involved in the freedom fight by joining the society.

And the LECF table, manned by former law-enforcement official Jim Fitzgerald, also enjoyed significant attention. Once observers learned of the foundation’s purposes — offering charitable support for families of police officers killed in the line of duty and grants to law-enforcement agencies for protective equipment and other material — many of them asked to be informed of the charity’s activities with several offering significant financial contributions to its cause.

The summit in Denver drew thousands, while the attacks from such groups as The Young Turks and the SPLC merely prove that the conference must be doing something right in the freedom fight.

SPLC Venomously Attacks Western Conservative Summit, Revealing its Hateful Bias

This article was published by The McAlvany Intelligence Advisor on Monday, June 11, 2018:  

In a decision that revealed not only its hateful bias but its evil intentions, the “Hatewatch Staff” at the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) attacked the speakers scheduled to address the Western Conservative Summit this past weekend in Denver, Colorado. They called them “rhetorical hardliners” including “a new generation of far-right social media propagandists.”

It didn’t pull any punches:

Parents Oppose Former Obama Education Czar’s Radical School Boycott for Gun Control

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Monday, June 4, 2018: 

A week after the former Obama Education Secretary Arne Duncan called for a boycott of schools in September to force politicians to pass additional gun-control laws, Rasmussen Reports quizzed 1,000 American adults about what they thought of his idea: “A proposal has been made for parents across America to keep their children out of school for a few days next fall to pressure Congress into passing more gun control laws.”

Rasmussen reported that a majority opposed Duncan’s proposal that popped up following the Santa Fe, Texas shooting.

The radical proposal didn’t come from Duncan, but from another Obama refugee, Peter Cunningham, who tweeted, “Maybe it’s time for America’s 50 million school parents to simply pull their kids out of school until we have better gun laws.” Replied Duncan:

This is brilliant, and tragically necessary. What if no children went to school until gun laws changed to keep them safe?

 

My family is all in if we can do this at scale. Parents, will you please join us?

Commentators immediately heralded the blatant hypocrisy about Duncan’s “family” being “all in” over the idea, especially as his children attend the “exclusive, private University of Chicago Laboratory Schools in tony Hyde Park,” according to the Jewish World Review. A brochure from the schools notes that the grounds are “patrolled by the University of Chicago Police Department and private security.”

But never mind. Duncan was busy defending his radical suggestion, which came no doubt directly from Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals. He told CNN:

I know it would be very difficult. It’s counter to everything I’ve talked about all my life of trying to get kids to school and to stay in school, but I just think as a nation we’re at a breaking point and we just cannot continue to allow our children and our adults to die due to senseless gun violence.

Duncan continued, “what I’m talking about is an idea — for all the difficultly, for all the impractically about it — I think would shock the nation, would create the kind of tension that we’ve lacked, and we need to create tension to compel lawmakers to change.”

When asked about its practicality by The Atlantic’s Adam Harris, Duncan made his case:

We put this out a few days ago, and it was definitely intended to be thought-provoking. And you think about, you know, not all schools, but many schools, come back to school after Labor Day, that first week of September. That would give us a little time to see whether it makes sense. But there is clearly, as of now, very significant interest.

 

And, you know, teachers have walked out for higher pay, kids have walked out on the gun-violence issue, and my question is: What have we as parents done? We’re not protecting our kids. And, again, that’s the most fundamental thing. You want your kids to be safe. That’s instinctual. And the fact that we’re not doing that—we’re not willing to think radically enough to do it—I can’t stomach that.

 

So, the thought was, let’s see if it develops, let’s see if it continues to pick up momentum. But if you could do something in September, you’d see whether politicians move or not. If they move, fantastic. If they don’t move, then you’re looking at the November elections. Then you act….

 

When were part of the [Obama] administration, we played by all the rules after [the] Sandy Hook [massacre]. We did a study, we did a report, we worked with Congress, and guess what we accomplished?

 

Nothing.

 

So, playing by the rules hasn’t worked. We need to change the game.

This is indicative of the motivation of radicals such as Duncan, but not surprising considering his past history. A graduate of Harvard College with a degree in sociology, Duncan cut his educatory teeth as the deputy chief of staff of the Chicago Public Schools from 1998-2001. He was promoted to CPS’s chief executive officer, where he was free to implement as many radical ideas as he could. Predictably, under his leadership the Chicago State Board of Education showed that the Chicago district failed to make “adequate yearly progress” in mathematics and reading each year from 2004 to 2008.

Following that failure, he left CPS to take on the position of secretary of education under then-president Barack Obama. During his seven-year tenure Duncan labored to force states to implement the Common Core curriculum and spent $4.35 billion of taxpayer monies for the administration’s “Race to the Top” program, touted at the time as his signature program to improve student performance. Duncan’s efforts so greatly displeased both the National Education Association (NEA) and the American Federation of Teachers (AFT) that both organizations called for his resignation.

He finally stepped down when the National Center for Education Statistics reported that on the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) — a test administered biennially to assess the reading and math proficiencies of fourth- and eighth-grade students — scores were down almost entirely across the board. Wrote National Review of the educational catastrophe wrought by Duncan’s radical policies: “Viewed against more than two decades of prior scores, these results can only be described as a train wreck.”

That report was released in October of 2015, the same month that Duncan announced he was resigning his position.

What will happen when school begins in the fall is pure speculation. But it is highly unlikely that parents with school-age children will heed the radical call of Duncan and keep their youngsters at home in order to pressure politicians to pass more gun laws. After all, the Santa Fe shooter violated all manner of existing laws and didn’t even use a hated “assault rifle” in his attack. But this didn’t stop Duncan from promulgating his radical idea anyway, hoping that somehow, some way, it might gain traction. That’s the mindset of radicals such as Duncan: If something doesn’t work, try something else, and keep trying until your objective is won.

Arne Duncan Using Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals to Intimidate Politicians to Pass More Gun Laws

This article was published by The McAlvany Intelligence Advisor on Monday, June 4, 2018:

The brilliant radical Saul Alinsky developed a series of rules that, if successfully implemented, will change the culture. Arne Duncan, the former Education Secretary in the Obama administration, wants to change the culture.

Quiz: which of Alinsky’s rules is Duncan using?

Always remember the first rule of power tactics: Power is not only what you have but what the enemy thinks you have.

The second rule is: Never go outside the experience of your people.

The third rule is: Wherever possible go outside the experience of the enemy. Here you want to cause confusion, fear, and retreat.

The fourth rule is: Make the enemy live up to their own book of rules.

The fourth rule carries within it the fifth rule: Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.

The sixth rule is: A good tactic is one that your people enjoy.

The seventh rule is: A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag.

The eighth rule: Keep the pressure on.

The ninth rule: The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself.

The tenth rule: The major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition.

The eleventh rule is: If you push a negative hard and deep enough it will break through into its counterside.

The twelfth rule: The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative.

The thirteenth rule: Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.

Arne Duncan rates several pages in DiscoverTheNetworks.com, which, all by itself, is a warning. It provides enough sourced information to allow for the conclusion that the man is a danger to society. A graduate of Harvard College with a degree in sociology, Duncan cut his educatory teeth as the deputy chief of staff of the Chicago Public Schools from 1998-2001. He was promoted to chief executive officer of CPS, which allowed him to implement as many radical ideas as he could.

GoFundMe Campaigns for School Shootings Show America’s Generosity, Goodness

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Tuesday, May 29, 2018: 

Science teacher Jason Seaman thought nothing of the request by one of his junior high students to leave his classroom briefly last Friday morning. Seaman, who teaches science at Noblesville West Middle School near Indianapolis, also serves as a football coach at the 1,300-student school.

When the student (whose name hasn’t yet been released) returned with two handguns and starting shooting at his students, Seaman immediately ran toward him, knocking the guns away and tackling him. The shooter had time to wound seriously one of his students, Ella Whistler, but was prevented from inflicting any further casualties by the quick thinking and action of Seaman.

For his trouble, Seaman suffered three gunshot wounds: in the stomach, hip, and arm. Both Seaman and Whistler were taken to local hospitals, where emergency surgery was performed on both of them.

It wasn’t until Monday morning that Seaman had recovered enough to be able to issue a statement, in which he said:

Another School Shooting, This One in Santa Fe. But Why?

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Saturday, May 19, 2018: 

The problem isn’t guns but people who use them to commit evil. The solution is not simply to protect ourselves from evildoers but to reverse our cultural decline that has caused more people to choose evil over good.

Early Friday morning 17-year-old Dimitrios Pagourtzis burst into an art classroom at Santa Fe High School, shouted “Surprise!” and started shooting. By the time the spree ended nine students and one teacher lay dead and another 10 students wounded, some seriously.

But although this is the latest school shooting this year, it is not the only one, or even the most lethal. Three months earlier, another school shooter claimed 17 innocent lives in Parkland, Florida.

Why is this happening? What can be done about it? Who’s to blame?

According to anti-gun leftists, gun-rights supporters are to blame. After the latest tragedy, Alyssa Milano, the starlet who formed an anti-NRA campaign last month, tweeted:

The Republic Needs More Kaitlin Bennetts!

This article was published by The McAlvany Intelligence Advisor on Friday, May 18, 2018: 

Until last Sunday, only a few knew the name Kaitlin Bennett. But following graduation on Saturday from Kent State with a degree in zoology, she decided to celebrate not only the event, but her new freedom. For four years she has been laboring under Kent State’s “gun free zone” rules: only visitors on campus can carry under Ohio’s rules, not students.

So she dressed up in a provocative white dress and heels, put on her AR-10 semi-automatic rifle, carried her mortar board emblazed with “Come and Take It!” and had photographs taken outside the student union. She posted them on her Facebook page, adding:

Now that I graduated from Kent State, I can finally arm myself on campus. I should have been able to do so as a student – especially since four unarmed students were shot and killed by the government on this campus [in 1970].

Not surprisingly, the combination of her pose, her posture and her position caused her Facebook entry to go viral. On Tuesday she added:

Kent State Graduate Protests School’s Gun Control; Receives Death Threats

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Thursday, May 17, 2018:

The day after she graduated from Kent State, Kaitlin Bennett celebrated not only the event but her freedom from her school’s restrictions on her Second Amendment rights. She posted provocative photos — she was wearing a short white dress — on her Facebook page showing her carrying an AR-10 semiautomatic rifle and her graduation mortar board, which was inscribed with the words “Come and Take it!”

She explained:

Now that I graduated from Kent State, I can finally arm myself on campus. I should have been able to do so as a student — especially since four unarmed students were shot and killed by the government on this campus [in 1970].

Not surprisingly, the combination of her pose, her posture, and her position caused her Facebook entry to go viral. On Tuesday she added:

I have no apologies for my graduation photos. As a woman, I refuse to be a victim & the Second Amendment ensures that I don’t have to be.

Although Ohio is an open-carry state, the Kent State administration has declared that the Second Amendment applies only to guests and visitors, not to students, faculty, or anyone doing business with the university. In an oddly worded declaration, the rule reads: “It is the policy of the university to prohibit the possession, storage, or use of a deadly weapon … [which] means any instrument, device, or thing … by students, staff, faculty, third parties doing business with the university, and visitors is prohibited inside any university building, facility, or vehicle, that is owned, operated or leased by the university.”

Everyone else is excluded from the rule, which, as of Sunday, May 13, included Kaitlin. And she took advantage of her newly available freedom. She has been a fearless defender and promoter of freedom ever since she arrived on campus, taking on the position of president of the school’s Liberty Hangout chapter. It may safely be concluded from viewing the chapter’s website that it promotes libertarian and freedom-oriented points of view, along with various tools of the trade, including shirts and hats emblazoned with such expressions as “Don’t Steal: the Government Hates Competition”; “Build the Wall”; “Taxation is Theft”; and so on.

Kaitlin knew exactly what she was doing. She told  Fox19 NOW-WXIX on Wednesday: “I was a girl in a white dress with heels on, with an AR-10. That’s not what people picture as a gun advocate.” When asked about the response to her provocative photo, she said she has received hundreds of responses, e-mails. and tweets, not all of them supportive. When asked by Fox19 if she was afraid, Kaitlin responded: “No. I’m armed. I don’t know why they are threatening an armed woman. I don’t know why they are threatening anyone.”

Some of those tweets contain obscenities not appropriate for this venue, but a few that barely made it include:

Media’s Relentless Attacks Against Trump May be Backfiring

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Thursday, April 5, 2018: 

It wasn’t the Rasmussen poll on Tuesday that upset members of the mainstream media. They have long since written off Rasmussen’s polls as biased towards Republicans. So when Rasmussen reported on Tuesday that President Trump’s approval rating rose to 51 percent — the third time this year that his rating has been at 50 percent or above — they all but ignored it.

It was the CNN poll from a few days earlier that they couldn’t understand. While that poll, covering 913 individuals from March 22 through 25, still showed Trump’s approval rating at 43 percent, that was a huge jump from previous poll results. As Newt Gingrich explained, “the result was so shocking that CNN commentator Chris Cillizza, who is normally deeply anti-Trump, had to spend time analyzing [the results] in which the president performed so much better in March than he did in February”:

In its Attempt to Destroy Trump, the Mainstream Media is Destroying Itself

This article was published by The McAlvany Intelligence Advisor on Friday, April 6, 2018:  

So committed is the mainstream media in the United States to their purpose – destroy Trump in any way they can – that it took a foreign journalist to point out to them what they are really doing. Writing in the U.S. edition of the liberal British news magazine The Week, journalist Matthew Walther, said:

It’s not surprising that after little more than a year in office, many people who voted for the president still support him. But it’s also surprising that a president who has been the object of more negative reporting than any in our history still enjoys something like the same middling base of support he had before taking office.

 

Unless it’s the negative reporting that is the problem, which I suspect is very largely the case….

Walther makes the case that if the mainstream media hadn’t abandoned its primary mission as the fourth estate – to bring full-blown fair and honest conversation about current affairs to the public – and instead decided to make its primary, if not only, mission to destroy Trump and his administration, things might be turning out differently:

High-school Students Stage Walkout to Support the Second Amendment

The completely unplanned, unstaged, unfunded, and spontaneous gathering of 75 students outside Rockledge High School in Brevard County, Florida, last Friday morning was almost completely ignored by the mainstream media. Organized by Chloe Deaton, a sophomore, and Anna Delaney, a junior, the event lasted 20 minutes, just long enough to make their point: Other students in the same high school and around the country who urged more infringements on the people’s right to keep and bear arms didn’t speak for them.

After playing the national anthem (no one kneeled) and “God Bless America” on loudspeakers set up on the school’s track, Delaney told her classmates, “We were built on certain rights and that was one of the original rights, that we should have the right to bear arms.” She can be forgiven for failing to note that the right to self-defense and, thereby, the access to tools useful for self-defense are natural rights and pre-date the Constitution.

She made up for her misstatement by quoting President Ronald Reagan, who got it right:

Is Common Sense Finally Returning to the Nation’s School Boards?

This article was published by The McAlvany Intelligence Advisor on Monday, March 5, 2018:

Thomas Edison said “The three great essentials to achieve anything worthwhile are: hard work, stick-to-itiveness, and common sense.” That may explain why so few accomplish anything worthwhile, because “Common Sense, Isn’t!”

Take the average school board. For years, nearly all of them have bought the argument that if you post enough “gun free” zones around the schools, shooters will take heed and go elsewhere. A parody of this nonsense can still be found on YouTube (see Sources below).

What those “gun free” zones mean to murderous thugs is “safe shooters’ hunting preserves!” John Lott, founder of the Crime Prevention Research Center, has proven statistically that 98 percent of all “gun free” zones have been the target of all mass shootings.

But finally a trigger point may have been reached:

More Schools Allow Teachers and Staff to Arm Themselves

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Monday, March 5, 2018:  

During the Pike County, Kentucky, school board hearing last Wednesday night, the board reached a unanimous decision to approve arming teachers and staff at the county’s 25 schools. Predictably, Executive Director Jon Akers of the Kentucky Center for School Safety said that “every educational group across the country” opposes the idea.

Said Akers, the idea “scares me to death … arming people who are not trained equal to that of law enforcement officers is risky.”

Akers’ argument, like so many being offered by people such as him, just doesn’t hold any water. Under the new proposal, school teachers and staff could volunteer to carry concealed at the schools, but only after passing a background check, a drug test, a mental evaluation, and a qualification course. And they would have to requalify regularly.

Teachers’ unions are nearly out of arguments, especially in light of the massacre of innocents in Florida on Valentine’s Day. Those innocent students had no chance to defend themselves because the school was declared a “gun free” zone. Those opposed to arming teachers say that such programs

Goal Setting by a 10-year-old homeschooler

For my Business class today I will be writing what I am willing to settle for at different intervals of my life, as well as how I believe going the extra mile will help me attain my goals.

In one year from now, I see myself working twice a week at a local restaurant downtown and being paid. I have been working at this restaurant for two years now as an apprentice, and within a year I will be old enough to be paid, as well as have enough experience to do well at my job. I do not cook much, I mainly stay with the Pastry Chef, and that is what I want to do. I am willing to settle for this job in a year, it would serve me well and help me gain the experience needed for this line of work in the future.

A $500,000 Taxpayer-funded Settlement has Finally Awakened State Lawmakers

This article was published by The McAlvany Intelligence Advisor on Friday, October 6, 2017: 

When Washington State lawmakers Matt Manweller and Phil Fortunato learned about what was passing for “education” at taxpayer-funded Evergreen State College (ESC), they started applying the correct remedies: they offered bills to cut its funding and then sell it. Whether such radical ideas will gain traction among their colleagues remains to be seen. In the meantime, delays in doing so are costing Washington taxpayers a pretty penny.

When a liberal college professor not only calls his school radical and then sues it for restitution over its radical policies, one can only assume he is correct. Writing in the Wall Street Journal in May, biology professor Bret Weinstein at ESC, said:

Sign from the John Birch Society advocating US withdrawal from the United Nations , with Ron Paul sign in background,

The John Birch Society has been enduring rampant smears of late, being called anti-Semitic and a white nationalist group. But the truth is far different — and always has been.

If you represent any sort of threat against the establishment and its glob­alist agenda, prepare to be ruthlessly demonized and lied about by that same globalist establishment. Exhibit A is, of course, President Donald Trump. After announcing that he was running on an anti-globalist platform to “drain the swamp,” the billionaire businessman was relentlessly smeared across every propaganda organ the establishment possesses. If the “fake news” media, as Trump correctly calls them, is to be believed, the president is a racist, white supremacist, anti-Semite, white nationalist, lunatic, conspiracy theorist, agent of Vladimir Putin, and another Hitler.

Of course, no actual evidence is ever provided,

Liberal Snowflakes at Cornell Suffer Meltdown Over Chanting About Trump’s Wall

English: The west face of Willard Straight Hal...

Willard Straight Hall at Cornell University.

If by “snowflake” one can accept the definition of Francis Dickinson, a Green Party activist, then snowflakes at the dormitory that houses La Associacion Latina (LAL) on the Cornell University campus had a meltdown last week. Dickinson defines a “snowflake” as “an insult, short for ‘special snowflake’ [which includes] all young liberals [who] think they are special and precious and unique and the world should revolve around them. And they will melt into a puddle when anything goes wrong.”

At 12:30 a.m. on Wednesday, September 6, something went wrong, and the folks in the dorm melted into a puddle. Several of the LAL students claimed that they heard voices coming from the Zeta Psi fraternity next door chanting, “Build a wall! Build a wall!” The offense occurred the day after President Trump announced his pushback against DACA, and so the LAL students were on high alert for anything that might injure their tender sensibilities.

The LAL students issued a statement over the offense:
