High standards for our students? Count me in. My dad was not happy with straight A´s. If my brother or I got a 95%, he wanted to know what happened on the other 5%. Even so, allowing the federal government to dictate education to states and local government? No thanks.It is true, the Common Core standards did originally grow from states wanting to increase standards so our students can better compete with the rest of the world. Great idea. And Louisiana was in that group. But a few things have happened along the way. First, the federal government became increasingly involved

On Tuesday, State Department spokeswoman Jennifer Psaki appeared flustered when she was asked a question concerning one of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton´s main legacies at Foggy Bottom. It was something called the Quadrennial Diplomacy and Development Review, known around the Department by the clunky acronym QDDR, and it was created by Secretary Clinton in 2010 to "provide a sweeping assessment of how the Department of State…can become more efficient, accountable, and effective." When Psaki announced that the 2014 edition of the QDDR is now underway, to "build on the foundation established by the 2010 review," Associated Press reporter

Jared Taylor and the Politics of Race
American Thinker, by Jeff Lipkes    Original Article
Posted By: magnante- 4/24/2014 5:46:14 AM     Post Reply
Good manners are infectious. Jared Taylor’s civility and dapper appearance impress even those sending him death threats: the most recent one addresses him as “Mr. Taylor.” (snip) For his many critics, the civility, reasonableness, and impressive c.v. are all a veneer. Beneath the polished exterior beats the heart of a racist. Taylor denies the charge: he is a “race realist” not a “racist.” But this is a distinction without a difference to opponents. He believes the differences in White and Black crime rates, academic and intelligence test scores, and other variances in behavior and outlook are largely attributable to genetic

WASHINGTON — My telephone is not ringing off the hook. No intriguing or inquiring emails have arrived on my computer. Yet, on Friday, a document drop from the Clinton Library revealed that years ago, in the 1990s, I was at the very heart of the “vast right-wing conspiracy.” Now here we are almost a week later, and still no journalist, much less a historian, has called to ask me if I really was actively conspiring with the British press, select American newspapers, obscure right-wing political operators and, who knows, possibly foreign powers to create the gossamer of scandal over the

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio is demanding a quick settlement of the lawsuit brought by the five men convicted of one of the most sickening crimes in the city’s history: the attack on the Central Park jogger in 1989. The plaintiffs are demanding $50 million apiece — for going to prison for a rape that they committed, as detailed in Chapter 13 of Demonic: How the Liberal Mob Is Destroying America. Abner Louima got $5.8 million for a shockingly brutal police assault on him, and he was just an innocent bystander. The “Central Park Five,” as PBS documentarian Ken Burns has

I’m posting this report, not because I think anyone actually expected the Obama administration to abide by the requirements it set out for itself when devising this leviathan of a law (LOLz) — I mean, the thing is huge, and it would just be totally unreasonable to expect the administration to be able to churn out regulations and studies on time, every time, right? …Which is exactly my point. I’d just like to take this opportunity to once again highlight the practically unknowable degree to which Obama’s crowning legislative achievement is expanding our bureaucracy and its involvement in one-sixth of

The first contingent of US troops has landed in Poland for military exercises amid tensions with Russia over Ukraine. An initial 150 soldiers are to be followed by a further 450 within days. Separately, the UK, Netherlands and Denmark scrambled fighter jets after Russian military aircraft were spotted approaching their airspace. US President Barack Obama accused Russia of flouting last week´s deal on Ukraine. Moscow said it would respond to any attack on its interests there. Speaking on Russian state TV channel RT on Wednesday, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov drew a parallel with the 2008 Georgian war, saying that if

TALLAHASSEE, Fla.— Killing or injuring a fetus at any stage of development would be a crime under a bill passed by the Florida Legislature. The Florida Senate voted 25-14 for the bill that expands a current law, which allows for murder or manslaughter charges if a fetus dies after it has developed to a point where it can survive outside the womb. Sen. Kelli Stargel said the bill was needed because of what happened to Remee Jo Lee. The Tampa-area woman had a miscarriage after being tricked into taking abortion pills by her ex-boyfriend. Lee was in the Senate chamber

Another catastrophe has overtaken John Kerry. It’s almost routine now. The Middle East peace process that was going to fix everything has finally gone belly up. John Kerry’s tireless overtures have somehow resulted in the Palestinian authority joining Hamas. You wonder how he did that. That alliance with the terror organization deep-sixed any hopes for a deal with Israel. (Snip) Good news is pretty thin at Foggy Bottom. This latest setback comes after a State Department spokesperson failed to name a single accomplishment of the agency under Secretary Hillary Clinton.

First lady Michelle Obama took her campaign to help veterans find jobs to Fort Campbell, Ky.., Wednesday where she said that most Americans don´t know much about the military. Following comments from Jill Biden, the vice president´s wife and Obama´s teammate in helping veterans, she noted that unlike Biden, she had little familiarity with the military prior to campaigning for the White House in 2008. “Unlike Jill, I wasn´t a military mom. I wasn´t a Blue Star family member. I didn´t know much about the military, and I was probably more like the average American,” said Obama.

Safety concerns about

Two recent deaths and increased emergency room visits in Colorado have highlighted concerns about the safety of legal marijuana edibles. Dr. George Sam Wang of Children´s Hospital Colorado says part of the problem is that the effects of edible marijuana begin more slowly than smokeable pot, though they tend to last longer. "One of the dangers that we´ve been seeing with adult recreational retail use is they´ll take the recommended dose, wait, feel no effects and then continue to stack doses. Then before they know it they have a pretty large amount in their system and then they get potentially pretty severe

A liquefied natural gas facility in southern Maryland is generating intense criticism from environmental groups, in a fight that echoes the protracted battle over the proposed Keystone XL pipeline. Energy company Dominion Resources is hoping to invest up to $3.8 billion to upgrade the Cove Point LNG facility as an export terminal. If successful, it could become the East Coast´s chief LNG export facility, sending billions of cubic feet of natural gas to Japan, India, and elsewhere. Dominion stresses that the project would have a huge economic impact close to home as well. "The local area of Calvert County gets

During the first two weeks of nice temperatures in Chicago this year--which included Easter weekend--the city was beset with some 100 shootings with nearly a dozen dead. This intense violence has earned the Windy City a brand new nickname bestowed by its own citizens: "Chiraq." Over Easter weekend, there were 45 separate shooting victims in Chicago, four of which died. The previous weekend saw 35 shootings in only 36 hours that resulted in several more deaths. There were even more shootings and deaths during the intervening days between the weekends, as well. All this violence has turned Chicago into a

George Clooney has confessed to calling Las Vegas gambling mogul Steve Wynn an ´a**hole´ and storming off at a recent dinner because the casino-owner insulted President Barack Obama. The verbal assault occurred two weeks ago when the two-time Oscar winner was in Vegas promoting his Casamigos tequila, and was invited to dine with Wynn and his wife, Andrea Hissom, at the fancy Botero restaurant inside the 72-year-old´s Encore hotel. But when dinner was finished, the conversation turned to Obama´s Affordable Care Act, of which Wynn is a vocal opponent. That´s when sparks began to fly. Clooney immediately took exception to how the billionaire

A prominent Japanese politician has raised hackles as Barack Obama visits Tokyo by claiming it´s an ´open secret´ that he and the first lady are headed for divorce, and that the president has been using Secret Service agents to cover for him as he pursues extramarital affairs. Kazuyuki Hamada, who sits in the upper house of Japan´s parliament, earned his PhD a half-mile from the White House at George Washington University, and emerged as a shrill commentator on America´s economy and foreign policy. In 2009 he also joined the ranks of the so-called ´birthers,´ arguing in a book titled ´Who is Obama?´

Professor Brent Terry has apologized for slamming the GOP during a creative writing class lecture at Eastern Connecticut State University earlier this week. During the four-minute rant, captured by one student on audio tape, the professor claimed Republicans do not want Latinos, blacks, young people, or old people to vote. He also warned colleges would start closing if the GOP takes control of both the House and Senate in November. State GOP Rep. Leader Larry Cafero (R-Norwalk) demanded Terry apologize for his offensive harangue “as a point of personal privilege.” Only an hour after Cafero made the request on the House

At least 40 U.S. veterans died waiting for appointments at the Phoenix Veterans Affairs Health Care system, many of whom were placed on a secret waiting list. The secret list was part of an elaborate scheme designed by Veterans Affairs managers in Phoenix who were trying to hide that 1,400 to 1,600 sick veterans were forced to wait months to see a doctor, according to a recently retired top VA doctor and several high-level sources. For six months, CNN has been reporting on extended delays in health care appointments suffered by veterans across the country and who died while waiting for appointments and care.

As midterm elections quickly approach, many are starting to think about voting and potential fraud at the polls. And once again, we find that there is cause to be worried about voter fraud here in the U.S. It appears in a new report that 44,000 people are registered to vote in both Virginia and Maryland. A vote-integrity group crosschecked the voter rolls in the two states and found far too many people registered in both states. The group, known as The Virginia Voters Alliance, is going to expand their research into surrounding states like Pennsylvania, the District of Columbia, New York,

Texas Gov. Rick Perry was in New York today to make his pitch to business leaders he hopes to lure to the Lone Star State, and took the opportunity to reissue his debate challenge to Gov. Andrew Cuomo–who today declined the request. “Yes, I’m here recruiting business. I’m don’t shy away from that. I’m very upfront about that. But I’m also here to help stimulate a conversation with the people of New York state, the people in New York City, the legislators, the governor,” said Mr. Perry, speaking to reporters after a lunch with business owners at Hill Country BBQ.

Antibiotic-resistant superbug MRSA

Avoiding hospitals, gyms and communal showers isn’t a failsafe against getting infected with MRSA — that’s methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus — a new study in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences suggests. Instead, researchers tracing a specific strain of the contagious staph infection found that the bacteria has also been breeding in private households, meaning that homes play a “critical role as reservoirs for transmission.” Nature has the scoop: Researchers examined the prevalence of the USA300 strain in northern Manhattan and the Bronx, where it has caused an epidemic of skin and soft-tissue infections in recent years. In 2009,

WASHINGTON — The principle that all Internet content should be treated equally as it flows through cables and pipes to consumers looks all but dead. Companies like Disney, Google or Netflix will be allowed to pay Internet service providers like Comcast and Verizon for special, faster lanes to send video and other content to their customers under new rules to be proposed by the Federal Communications Commission, the agency said on Wednesday. The proposed rules are a turnaround for the agency on what is known as net neutrality — the idea that Internet users should have equal ability to see any legal

The federal student loan program is becoming so costly to taxpayers that even President Obama is pretending to fix it. Readers will recall Mr. Obama as the man who has spent much of his Presidency expanding this program, creating new ways for borrowers to avoid repayment, and then campaigning about these dubious achievements on campuses nationwide. Now Team Obama is acknowledging that his policies are turning out to be more expensive than he claimed. Participation in federal debt-forgiveness programs is surging. In a mere six months the number of borrowers who´ve signed up for such plans has increased to more than

The Affordable Care Act´s Independent Payment Advisory Board has been so heavily criticized for being an unaccountable body with the power to effectively ration Medicare services that many congressional Democrats no longer support it. IPAB´s bureaucratic cousin—the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation—deserves the same treatment. Both institutions are in place to preserve rather than reform Medicare´s traditional, and broken, fee-for-service Medicare program. They both also embrace the ObamaCare technocratic mind-set. IPAB´s 15 supposed experts (yet to be nominated by the Obama administration) are charged with governing a program with more than 50 million enrollees. The unstated yet clear agenda is to

When it comes to race in America, the last thing I´d want is to be considered a coward. But then, it´s so easy to be cowardly in America when it comes to race. It´s not normal for people to take positions that can leave them vulnerable and make it easy for others to brand them as racist and then shun them. Such pressure is a fact of American life. So instead of talking, they clam up. Their lips may stop moving. But they don´t stop thinking. And Attorney General Eric Holder said as much shortly after Barack Obama was elected president
