Obama administration,Congress quietly

Beneath the expressions of grief, sorrow and disbelief over the Connecticut school massacre lies an uneasy truth in Washington: over the last few years the Obama administration and Congress quietly let federal funding for several key school security programs lapse in the name of budget savings.Government officials told the Washington Guardian on Friday night that two Justice Department programs that had provided more than $200 million to schools for training,

I´m sure the $200 million in training included NO weapons training for teachers and conceal carry for them.
Probably just taught them how to be nice quiet victims

Another gimme-a-break story.

It must be the Republican´s fault.

The school allegedly had an upgraded entry system. $200M would not have helped.

Its the Obamaphone lady´s fault.

9 months after Obama became President he started a program of selling guns to Mexican drug cartels, Obama should have also attended the funerals of the thousands of people killed from the weapons he sold to Mexican drug cartels, and he should have apologized to all the victims family´s then Obama should have had himself arrested, but Obama is a Chicago crook and all he cares about is photo-ops.

$200 M isn´t that much. It only allows $1 M for training and $199 M for the cronies. That´s actually not enough...

This is not the feds business, it should be up to local authorities. There seems to be a lot of murdering nutcases running around and they are the ones that should be in jail and never see the light again.

Schools are a State and Local issue not a Federal issue. Some of the federal programs were earmarks, so they couldn´t even stand on their own as a federal bill. This is so low a federal priority that even President Obama decided to let the spending lapse.

Local School Boards are responsible for security of local schools. Of course, I state the obvious for the governmentally challenged.

They may have let security in the school buildings lapse, but SSRIs, pumped into the children to keep them manageable, are enjoying a field day.

Was he medicated?

There shouldn´t be one cent of federal money going to local education. It just allows the feds to use funding as a cudgel to compel the states to do the feds´ bidding. I attended public school in the 50s & 60s when federal meddling was in its infancy. Then it was just some subsidies for school lunches and "impact fees" paid to local school districts with a heavy influx of military conneted students. Without the fed pursestrings, schools wouldn´t be saddled with abominations like No Child Left Behind and Headstart.

Barry lets the funds lapse, then sits back and waits for another rampage, then goes on tv and bemoans about gun control. See how he works?

As for schools, if those teachers gave up their 5% pay raises every year, they could easily afford their own security.

Kristol: Republican House Was

The boss last night on Fox News: "I think the Republican House was put on this earth to save us from huge pieces of comprehensive legislation like this that I think are not well designed, would not work well. If we want to solve particular parts of the immigration problem, we can solve them. We can have more high-tech workers, if you want. We could have more guest workers for agriculture, if that´s necessary. We could legalize the people who are here. This 1,000-page bill, which is now probably 1,100 page bill--and much more expensive bill--because of this amendment, is not a good idea,"

A teenage girl–an honor student who had just performed at President Obama’s inaugural–was gunned down Tuesday afternoon in the Kenwood neighborhood, just blocks from the high school she attended. CBS 2’s Mike Parker reports the victim, 15-year-old Hadiya Pendleton, was taking shelter from the rain with a group of 10 to 12 teenagers under a canopy in Vivian Gordon Harsh Park on the 4500 block of South Oakenwald Avenue around 2:30 p.m., when someone jumped a fence, ran up to them, and opened fire.

James Carville slammed the “inhumane, idiotic” critics who questioned the legitimacy of Hillary Clinton’s recent head injury and said it was “duly noted” inside Clinton-land.“What kind of human being is going to think like that with everything going on with concussions, head injuries? The fact the woman was dehydrated from the fact that she’d been overseas so much — I just don’t know, and some of these people I know and I get along with,” Carville said Friday in a CNN interview.

Florida Democrats Wary as
National Party Embraces Crist
National Journal, by Beth Reinhard    Original Article

Former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist joined the Democratic Party with trademark panache, posting a picture of himself brandishing the signed paperwork on Twitter--from a White House Christmas party. Florida newspapers reported that President Obama responded to the news with a fist pump. That was Friday. Two days later, the newly elected chairman of the Democratic Governors Association said that Crist was “certainly high on the list” of recruits for the 2014 governor’s race. Vermont Gov. Peter Shumlin also called Crist “an incredibly capable leader ... a great governor … and a very strong candidate,” although he said he wasn’t ruling out other potential candidates.

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

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

   

 



 
In a Hole, Golf Considers

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

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan
