Education ´Change Agent´
Michelle Rhee:
The Left Connection

American Thinker, by M. Catharine Evans and Ann Kane

Who would have thought the ubiquitous education superstar Michelle Rhee would be sitting next to Andy Stern on the board of the Broad Foundation? Yes, that´s right. The Republican governors´ siren and CEO of StudentsFirst works alongside the former SEIU leader, who´s visited the White House more than anyone else in the past four years and who said "workers of the world, unite" back in 2007. (snip) no one (except us) on the conservative side appears to be getting the con game going on with Rhee and Broad and, of course, the Obama regime

Very important article. I could never figure how someone of her ethnicity could get hired to run the D.C. schools. Urban schools are very much union halls and the school boards and teachers union play on the same team. Rhee would have had to be cleared by the politburo to be considered for the D.C. job.
And a seat on those leftist billionaire foundation boards can help keep up a girl´s standard of living.

The left has to lie and be sneaky. No one would follow them otherwise. These folks play for keeps.

When is the right going to realize this is ALL OUT WAR! And that we are losing the war because we are not doing anything to fight back. They have moles in our camp but we have nothing. We are acting like we have to play by the rules while the left is using every dirty-underhanded tactic possible. There won´t be more of us than them much longer unless we get on the ball NOW!!

But no...we are just too busy to worry about it. Let someone else deal with it. We have too many responsibilities...we have work & our daily routines, and then we HAVE to have TV time to watch our ball games, sitcoms & reality shows. The Kardashians are more important than saving our country. Ah, who needs freedom? Besides, it´s just too big for me...wah wah wahh!...

NO, it isn´t! Are we just going to sit on our butts and wait for someone to save us??? It won´t happen. We ALL must TAKE action now!!! We must all become leaders! We MUST organize or all is lost and all those men who fought for our freedom died in vain.

Amazingly, the article also failed to mention that Rhee is MARRIED to Kevin Johnson, the very liberal Mayor of Sacramento, who I believe was investigated a few years back for misuse (aka, embezzlement) of city funds, but of course, he was cleared.

This ties into concerns about our education system that Rush has been talking about recently. Hope he, Mark Levin, et al., see this.

Or Rhee was used as a dupe...We´ll invite her and make it look like she is in agreement...we control the agenda the reporting. Who will believe her when she says she disagreed?

A very common Lib trick. Best way to handle this is to stay miles away from their chrade!

After Waiting for Superman came out, a local talk show host was singing her praises down here in So. Florida. They contacted someone (I don´t remember his name but he was a black man in the DC area) trying to explain that Michelle Rhee was not who she appeared to be and the talk show host refused to give this guy a good hearing. I heard enough to believe the guy so this story doesn´t surprise me at all.

Sweat not -- the GOP Establishment and the Washington Conservative Mandarins are fine with it. Besides, they -- just like the Liberal Establishment and the Millionaire Left -- send their kids to private schools, so what´s the problem?

Don´t write off all the charter schools. I´ve just started tutoring math in a charter school in Colorado Springs. The kids I´ve worked with have all been tossed out of regular public schools for bad behavior, and they´ve improved their behavior and their math performance. Additionally, from my chatting with the principal and the other instructors I´ve worked with, the staff is conservative, many ex-military, and disappointed with 0bama´s reelection.

To be fair, Michelle Rhee did not sell herself as a conservative. She was always a reformer and made a lot of progressives angry because she wouldn´t follow the union line all the time. She took on the DC establishment (and ultimately lost) and said she would put the students -- not the unions, teachers, establishment, herself -- first. Made a lot of enemies.

The Republican establishment GAVE the education system to the left. Remember when W left Teddy write No Child Left Behind? Good move, nice and bipartisan.
The media and Dems then used it to bash W for five years. I did not know any of this about Rhee. I am really stunned.

Labor Fascism in Chattanooga

As the labor movement tells the story, two months ago, the silly, ungrateful Volkswagen factory workers in Tennessee foolishly rejected the generous invitation of the company and the United Auto Workers to welcome the Detroit-killing union with open arms. In an election supervised by the federal National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), the workers in VW´s Chattanooga plant rejected UAW representation by a vote of 712 to 626. Amazingly, the UAW and the automaker both refuse to take the workers´ "no" for an answer. The two sides are acting in unison to overturn the democratically expressed will of the workers.

Bundy and ´Civil Disobedience´

For more than 160 years, Henry David Thoreau´s essay on Civil Disobedience has inspired Americans to "make known what kind of government would command his respect" so that we could live under that government in good conscience. Ultimately, in a free society, that´s all we have that is truly our own; our conscience. Following its dictates, says Thoreau, is the only rational way to live your life and be true to oneself. It had been years since I read Civil Disobedience and I was surpised by how Cliven Bundy´s words echoed many of the theses in the essay. Legal experts overwhelmingly agree

A Soros-funded nonprofit New Yorker magazine called “one of the most important radical environmental groups in the country” has issued a statement denouncing the Bureau of Land Management‘s (BLM) decision to back away from a showdown with Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy and hundreds of supporters. A scientist for The Center for Biological Diversity (CBD) blasted BLM saying the federal agency “has a sacred duty to manage our public lands in the public interest…instead it is allowing a freeloading rancher and armed thugs to seize hundreds of thousands of acres of the people’s land as their own fiefdom.” CBD is funded by Earthjustice

If you live in flyover country, lay in a supply of popcorn and get ready to watch a continuing comedy drama being staged for your amusement by the progressives of San Francisco. The driving force is the classic dirty little secret of progressivism, greed and envy, and these deadly sins are amply on display in Baghdad-by-the-Bay these days.(snip)Yesterday, hundreds of SEIU members rallied in front of Twitter HQ to denounce the greed of the company that provides jobs and plenty of other tax revenue to assorted governments that employ SEIU members.

Last week we witnessed repeated efforts by Democrats to polarize the country along racial lines. Eric Holder, speaking at Al Sharpton´s conference, implied that he and the President are being treated harshly because they are black. (snip) The Republican base that Steve Israel says is animated by racism, nominated me -- an American of African descent and a great grandson of slaves -- for Lt. Governor of Virginia. They embraced me warmly, treated me respectfully and supported me enthusiastically. The liberal media on the other hand set out to destroy me. My white Democrat opponent was even caught on camera

Harry Reid’s jihad against the Koch Brothers has already yielded a hilarious video compilation of his 134 mentions of their name. But now with new information, his Koch addiction can become a potent tool in the hands of Republicans. Call it karma, if you like, but the former boxer now leading the Senate majority has left himself wide open. It turns out that Koch Industries employees and PACs have donated to quite a large number of Congressional Democrats.(snip) The ads practically write themselves: Mary Landrieu’s Majority Leader says the Koch Brothers are un-American.

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent
