Thugs Run L.A. Classrooms,
Thanks To Obama Suspension Ban
Investor´s Business Daily, by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 7/2/2014 7:25:50 PM     Post Reply
Education: As we predicted, the Obama regime´s anti-suspension policy is backfiring. Los Angeles teachers complain unsuspended violent kids are intimidating them and effectively ruling their classrooms. In 2011, the Education Department accused the Los Angeles Unified School District of discriminating against black boys, who were suspended for bad behavior at a disproportionate rate. The agency ordered it to reduce suspensions in the hopes that unruly minority students would stay in school and graduate. "The district shall develop and implement a comprehensive plan to eliminate the disproportionality in the discipline imposed on African-American students," the five-page decree says. The superintendent agreed

Bloomberg Editor on Halperin and

In a recent townhall meeting, Bloomberg Businessweek editor-in-chief talked about the company´s new acquisition of political reporters and "Game Change" authors John Heilemann and Mark Halperin, and then bragged that, "One of our biggest advantages in politics is we are not ideological, we are not a sewer." Anyone even somewhat familiar with the work of Halperin and Heilemann knows how laughably dishonest that statement is. Heilemann is by far the worst of the two. While Halperin has his better moments, Heilemann has defended Secretary of State John Kerry´s reprehensible remark about the possibility of Israel becoming an apartheid state, told Rand Paul

Facebook´s recent study of “emotional contagion” stirred debate among researchers and in social media about whether the company went too far by tinkering with some unwitting users’ news feeds. In fact, Facebook has been using algorithms to compile and show people posts since the earlier days of the news feed, which was introduced in 2006. Facebook says it is trying to show us the stuff that is most relevant and that without intervention we would be overwhelmed by the updates. Anytime someone logs in, it says, they could see on average 1,500 posts. Facebook says the news feed will display

CBS´s Garrett Criticizes WH
Optics of Obama Going to

Wednesday at the White House daily briefing, CBS White House correspondent Major Garrett slammed White House press secretary Josh Earnest over the "optics" of President Barack Obama refusing to go to the U.S.-Mexico border in light of the humanitarian crisis of thousands of unaccompanied minors flooding across the border. "With this on going humanitarian crisis and significant policy issue that is alarming people not only in Texas but obviously now places where you are trying to take these unaccompanied kids are you comfortable with the optics of the president going to fundraisers only and not taking an eyeball look himself

The San Francisco Chronicle has blamed Breitbart News for drawing the national media´s attention to the crisis of unaccompanied minors from Central America crossing the southern border by the tens of thousands. In an op-ed published by the Chronicle Wednesday calling for "a more humane immigration policy," David Bacon blamed Breitbart´s exposé for creating the impression that children were being sent to the U.S. in anticipation of being allowed to stay. Bacon correctly noted that Breitbart News broke the story of the conditions in which the children were being held by U.S. Border Patrol, and singled out Brandon Darby of

Obama Still Has ´No Plan

Despite an invitation from Texas Gov. Rick Perry, President Obama still has no immediate plans to visit the southwest border amid a crisis-level influx of illegal immigrant children and family units. White House Press Sec. Josh Earnest said Wednesday that, to date, Obama does not have plans to visit the border. “That’s the continued plan,” Earnest said when asked if Obama still has no plans to go to the border. He did, however, leave the door open for a change in scheduling. “[S]chedules sometimes change, and if they do we’ll let you know. But right now there is no plan to visit the border

Oklahoma Rep. Jim Bridenstine is asking what the Obama administration has to hide after he was denied access Monday to a Health and Human Services facility at Fort Sill currently housing up to 1,200 illegal immigrant children. “There is no excuse for denying a Federal Representative from Oklahoma access to a federal facility in Oklahoma where unaccompanied children are being held,” the Republican said in a press release. “After my visit today with the base commander, I approached the barracks where the children are housed,” he said. “A new fence has been erected by HHS, completely surrounding the barracks and covered

SAN ANTONIO — The Army said Wednesday that Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, the American POW who was released in a prisoner swap with the Taliban, has gone off the post in San Antonio for dinner and other excursions, and that he has been welcomed by those he meets. So far, Bergdahl has taken about 10 trips off Joint Base San Antonio-Fort Sam Houston as part of a carefully staged plan to help reintegrate him into society. “I can´t give you specifics, just because I don´t want people camping out at those places, but he´s gone to restaurants, he´s gone to supermarkets,

Hugh Hewitt — with an assist from history and the Socratic method — demolished the Huffington Post’s “Senior Political Economy Reporter” Zach Carter yesterday on his show. (Snip) "Most journalists go into the business because they are idealists of one sort or another and they love the whole “first draft of history” stuff. What journalists collectively do is crucial, because lousy reporting leads to lousy voting, the consequences we see now on full display across the globe. Perhaps Mr. Carter and his friends think the world around them is all George W. Bush’s fault. After all, they were in high

After Hobby Lobby ruling,

Liberal groups and congressional Democrats are moving forward with plans to reform the Religious Freedom Restoration Act in the wake of the Supreme Court´s ruling Monday in Burwell v. Hobby Lobby. Originally passed in 1993 with overwhelming bipartisan support, the law — on which the case was decided — forbids government from imposing significant burdens on a person’s religious convictions, unless that burden is in furtherance of a compelling government interest and pursued by the least restrictive means possible. Some Democratic lawmakers who supported the bill in 1993 issued statements Monday condemning the Supreme Court´s interpretation. Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y.,

SAN ANTONIO - A South Texas man reeled in the largest red snapper ever recorded off the Texas coast. Joey Beaver, of Victoria, bagged a 40-inch, 38.75 pound red snapper about five miles off the coast of Port O´Connor, a small fishing community between Corpus Christi and Galveston, in the Gulf of Mexico on June 1. "I thought it was a shark or something the way it was pulling," said Beaver, 28. "When I got it on the boat after about 20 minutes, it was crazy, everybody on the boat was going nuts." Beaver´s catch beat two state records for red

Written on the wall at Facebook is its motto: "Move fast and break things." But how much are they going to break? And how fast? A study in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences revealed on the weekend that in January of 2012, Facebook manipulated the feeds of 689,003 English language users, making slight alterations to see if they could change the large scale mood of the populace. The answer was a resounding yes, a terrifying and appalling yes. The most obvious scandal here is that Facebook is willing, just to see how strong it really is, to

Americans are in a period of amazingly negative thinking about the state of our country. A recent Gallup analysis drove home how deep and how threatening the current mood is. Gallup asked Americans in early June how much confidence they had in our nation´s institutions. The answer: not much. Only 30% had "a great deal" or "quite a lot of confidence" in the Supreme Court. Just 29% felt that way about the presidency. And an abysmal 7% had faith in the Congress. Think about what this means. Our most trusted national institution, the unelected Supreme Court, has the confidence of

U.S. Army soldiers who were serving with Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl when he left his post and wound up in the hands of the Taliban say no one has contacted them, even though military brass are currently conducting a new investigation into the case. Several soldiers who immediately came forward after Bergdahl was released on May 31, in a swap for five Guantanamo Bay detainees, have accused the 28-year-old Idaho native of deserting. But even though the Army is probing that very charge, investigators have not reached out to at least two former Army sergeants — including the platoon’s leader — who

On Wednesday’s “Your World with Neil Cavuto,” Scott Davis, a whistleblower who works as a Program Specialist at the VA’s Health Eligibility Center stated that “focus our attention to applications based on specific campaigns,” including ObamaCare. Davis said “there´s so much pressure on the employees to get stuff done so that management can meet goals, it´s easy to make mistakes, it’s easy to have mishaps,” and employees often “rush through the application process to hit goals for members of management.” According to Davis, employees “put incoming applications aside so we could focus on the [Affordable Care Act] related applications that

The Federal Election Commission (FEC) has asked a pro-Thad Cochran Super PAC, called Mississippi Conservatives, to provide additional information about what the newspaper Roll Call said “appears to be campaign finance violations.” At issue are last-minute expenditures made by the PAC in the days before the initial June 3 primary. The FEC “Request for Additional Information” says the PAC does not appear to have disclosed some of its spending in a timely manner. The FEC notes in the letter sent to treasurer Brian Perry that failure to “adequately respond” by Aug. 1 “could result in an audit or enforcement action.”

The Obama administration is stepping up security for some flights headed to the United States from Europe and the Middle East, reflecting heightened concern that terrorists are developing more sophisticated explosives designed to avoid airport screening. Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said in a statement that he has directed the Transportation Security Administration to "implement enhanced security measures in the coming days" at selected overseas airports. "We will work to ensure these necessary steps pose as few disruptions to travelers as possible," Johnson said in a statement.

Hillary Takes Six-Figure Speaking
Fees From Universities Raising Student Tuition

The Washington Post reports that likely 2016 presidential contender Hillary Clinton made somewhere around $1.8 million from eight universities in just nine months. While paying the former Secretary of State anywhere from $200,000 to $300,000 per speech, some of these schools were raising tuition prices on students already burdened by the growing student loan bubble. Clinton was paid $251,250 from the University of Connecticut not long after the school hit its students with 6.5% tuition increase. At UNLV, where tuition will jump 17% within the next four years, Clinton accepted a $225,000 speaking fee. The student government has since sent

The Wendy Davis campaign is having a tough time convincing Texas voters that she would make a good governor, and the video above might be a good reason why – they couldn’t name a single legislative accomplishment of hers. They sound just like Hillary Clinton supporters! Liberals were infuriated when a conservative labeled Davis the “Abortion Barbie” for the way she was glamorously glorified after filibustering a Texas bill that would have raised medical standards at abortion clinics. Ironically, that’s the only thing a supporter mentions in the interviews, made outside the 2014 Texas Democrat Convention. Recent polls have Davis

This week, in the Hobby Lobby case, the Supreme Court ruled that a religious employer could not be required to provide employees with certain types of contraception. That decision is beginning to reverberate: A group of faith leaders is urging the Obama administration to include a religious exemption in a forthcoming LGBT anti-discrimination action. Their call, in a letter sent to the White House Tuesday, attempts to capitalize on the Supreme Court case by arguing that it shows the administration must show more deference to the prerogatives of religion.

Nazis’ ‘perfect Aryan’ baby was Jewish

The joke’s on you! A baby in a photo chosen by Nazis as the perfect Aryan baby has been revealed to in fact be Jewish, not German. Hessy Taft, who was 6 months old when the picture was taken, found out about the photograph after an aunt recognized her on a postcard, the Telegraph reports. But apparently the Nazis had no idea that the precious baby they deemed the “perfect Aryan” was actually a descendant of the House of David. Taft lived with her parents, Jacob and Pauline Levinsons, in Berlin during the height of the Nazis’ takeover in 1935. While anti-Semitic attacks were taking

Japan on Tuesday announced a reinterpretation of its pacifist post-World War II Constitution that allows the country´s military to help defend the United States and other allies. Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said the decision by the Cabinet to adjust the interpretation from one that limited the armed forces to defending Japan was necessary because of regional changes. The decision allows Japan´s forces to help protect U.S. ships that may come under attack in nearby waters, Abe said. "This will be a deterrent," he said during a news conference. "The basic thinking on how the constitution is presently interpreted will not change

At least eight universities, including four public institutions, have paid hundreds of thousands of dollars for Hillary Rodham Clinton to speak on their campuses over the past year, sparking a backlash from some student groups and teachers at a time of austerity in higher education. In one previously undisclosed transaction, the University of Connecticut — which just raised tuition by 6.5 percent — paid $251,250 for Clinton to speak on campus in April. Other examples include $300,000 to address UCLA in March and $225,000 for a speech scheduled to occur in October at the University of Nevada at Las Vegas.

Buyer’s Remorse: Obama Now

This Quinnipiac poll, released today, is getting a lot of press. Understandably so: Quinnipiac polled 1,446 registered voters nationwide, and a plurality of 33% tagged Barack Obama as the worst president since World War II. Such historical ratings are always biased toward the recent past, of course; 28% said George W. Bush was the worst. In a head-to-head comparison with Bush, 40% say Obama is worse, while 39% think Obama is better than his immediate predecessor. In a re-run of the 2012 election, 45% now say the country would be better off if Mitt Romney were president, while 38% think

You don’t need to see an image of black-suited male figurines bowing to Valerie Jarrett’s White House picture to know that Valerie Jarrett is a cult in her own mind. The real life cult is that Jarrett, the power behind the current White House president, cultishly bows down to Barack Hussein Obama—and that Obama cultishly bows down to Valerie Jarrett. “An NBC package over the weekend shows an odd display.
