Crowd Laughs, Applauds Chicago
Teachers Union President After She
Jokes About Beheading The Rich

Mediaite, by Noah Rothman

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/8/2013 9:42:35 AM

Controversy erupted at the Illinois Labor History Society’s “Salute to Labor’s Historic Heroes from the History Makers of Today” conference when Karen Lewis, president of the Chicago Teachers Union, drew applause and laughs for suggesting that a past generation of labor leaders preferred to resolve disputes with murder. Lewis drew laughs when she talked about beheading the rich as a preferred method of conflict resolution for disgruntled labor organizers of a bygone era. (Snip) “At this very moment I still believe there is one party in this country – that is, the party of money, with two

Comments:
Once again I say, can you imagine if a Republican had said this about a union member? These people are sick and reprehensible. She is the perfect example of the gross abuse of free speech.

She was funnier when she was ridiculing Arne Duncan for having a speech impediment.

Why can´t Karen Lewis, and all the hot chicks, Roseanne, Whoopi, et al, be happy with just being so Fn hot?

But, NOOOOO they have to try to be funny, too!

Reminds me of a movie called the four hundred blows. Step by step the divide deepens. More people should read about the stages of conflict and think before they speak. In a perfect world I wish malace towards no one.

Read the comments that follow the article! Here´s one typical comment "We as Educators will not allow our children to be trained as trick-monkeys for corporate wealth and power growth." These far left educators are beyond sick and they are teaching "our children"? No wonder the country is so divided. What would this country be like if we had no corporations? We would be a third world seas pool.

That Chicago teachers are represented by someone like this explains a lot. No wonder the city is having the problems it has. This woman doesn´t even know what the teachers are there for! It is very likely that many of those she represents don´t know what their purpose is either.

Teaching and news reporting have not always been accorded the dignity and status of professions. Somehow humanity survived and accomplished great things long before schools of education and journalism made their appearance. The latter seem principally to serve as indoctrination centers and foci of ideological infection. I am not aware of any good evidence they add value or quality or skill to their nominal purpose, e.g. how to educate students or report the news. Combined with powerful unions, schools of education have unleashed a nightmare on the nation that may prove our undoing. This woman and her cheering are one example.

This is the same Karen Lewis who bragged about staying stoned her entire time at college- where she was GIVEN a spot rather than earned one.
What a typical liberal.

What a pig! Literally, figuratively... How sick is it that this miserable excuse for a human actually represents Chicago teachers? No wonder 80% of Chicago children in 8th grade are not proficient in reading or math for their grade level. Does anyone wonder why Chicago keeps electing corrupt democrap officials and sent us the most corrupt president ever?

Not only is she a pig, she is ignorant to boot. Does she realize in the grand scope of the earth, she is a rich pig herself? She lives like the "filthy rich" pig she is by having more food and wealth than billions of people on the face of the earth.

Sorry to the world´s pigs for the comparison. It´s the only word I wouldn´t get banned for calling her.

1. Ah, the sweet fragrance of "the new civility."

2. Uglier on the outside or the inside?

3. About "schools" and "educators": in big city gov´t schools, only half the employees are classroom teachers. In charter schools, it´s about 80%. Among big city gov´t school "teachers," roughly 40% or more send their kids to private schools. Come on, do you need to hear more? Really?

4. Gov´t schools are bureaucracies first and foremost. The purpose of any bureaucracy is not "results", not progress toward some stated goal, but self-preservation. And nothing "proves" the need for a given bureaucracy more than its growth. That helps explain two things about bureaucracies: a. they can never really "succeed" [for they are then unnecessary]; and b. "mission creep" is a great defense and "proof" of their "importance." "Mission creep" often falls into one of two categories [or tactics?]: a. make the definition of your field ever-wider, ever-fuzzier [note how just about everyone "has" or "is at risk from" diabetes]; and b. simply annex new territory [look at how various medical charities/associations have expanded their "areas of interest"].

Rust never sleeps. A good thing to keep in mind. Along with the salaries of the "big-shots" in these organizations....

She is typical of liberal thinking. She, of course, is paid by the union, which gets its money from the teachers, who are paid by the government, which gets its money from taxpayers. She is so far removed from where her salary comes from that she thinks that without rich people hogging their "unfair share" there would be enough to go around for everyone else. Where would we be if she really could get rid of rich people? She needs to read the last third of Atlas Shrugged for a clue.

The SPLC’s Attack on Rush

PJ Media, by Ron Radosh    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/22/2014 10:01:12 PM     Post Reply
The column I wrote last week, it turns out, has created somewhat of a storm. This is due to one thing only: Rush Limbaugh read it aloud on his radio program. (Start reading in the middle from where it says “BREAK TRANSCRIPT.”) That one decision by Rush led all of our mutual enemies to go viral, sending numerous Tweets and Facebook posts attacking Rush and me for supposedly arguing that the anti-Semitic neo-Nazi Glenn Miller acted because of Max Blumenthal. Of course, as I wrote last week in an addendum, this was not the point I was making. I wrote the following, and repeat it once again:

Iran Refuses to Pull Terrorist
Washington Free Beacon, by Adam Kredo    Original Article

Iran is insisting that the United States accept its decision to appoint a former terrorist as it representative to the United Nations, which held a closed-door meeting on Tuesday to address Tehran’s concerns over the matter. President Barack Obama signed into law last week a widely supported bill preventing countries from appointing terrorists as their U.N. ambassadors. The bill came in response to Iran’s selection of Hamid Aboutalebi as its next envoy to the United Nations. The pick drew outrage on Capitol Hill and elsewhere after Aboutalibi was identified as having played a key role in the 1979 Iranian hostage crisis,

Politico: Dr. Ben Carson´s Talent

At Politico Magazine, writer and physician James Hamblin tried to answer the question "Who is Dr. Ben Carson?" After describing how he became a "darling of the right-wing media" after calling out President Obama at a prayer breakfast, Hamblin tried to explain how he speaks in "over the top" language about America in decline. But Hamblin really let loose when he insisted that despite Dr. Carson´s surgical talent, his opposition to Obamacare is based on "sentiment," not a "rational pespective. His talent "does not imply an elevated or even rational perspective on health-care policy." Carson speaks from a unique position of stature

Obama’s Malaysia Trip
Includes Visit to a Mosque

When President Obama becomes the first U.S. president to visit Malaysia in almost half a century, he will visit a prominent mosque on Sunday – but not a church, in a country where relations between the Muslim establishment and minority Christians have not always been smooth. Also, Obama’s itinerary includes a meeting with “Malaysian civil society leaders,” but according to the White House he will not meet with Anwar Ibrahim, the veteran opposition leader who since the late 1990s has been embroiled in a legal battle with the government widely viewed as a politically motivated harassment campaign.

On Monday, The Washington Post announced it had hired Philip Bump, a journalist currently at Atlantic magazine’s The Wire, to cover politics for their daily blog The Fix. The move set off a chain of congratulations from across the political press corps. But lost in the media love fest was Bump’s partisan past — a history left unspoken in either the Post’s official announcement or any of the Twitter applause. Not only does Bump’s archive at The Wire betray a palpable bias in favor of progressivism; his career as a journalist began when he headed a vicious pro-labor blog which published the names and addresses of opponents later targeted by

Obama to free hundreds of drug

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

Fraud runs rampant in Census Bureau

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning
