By Taking Down DeVos, Unions And
Democrats Hope To Kill School Reform

Investor´s Business Daily, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:RockyTCB, 1/11/2017 8:46:28 AM

Education: Democrats and unions are joining to kill any prospect of meaningful education reform by President-elect Donald Trump. How? By fatally damaging school reformer Betsy DeVos´ nomination as Secretary of Education. DeVos is unquestionably qualified to head the Education Department. She has spent most of her adult life as an enthusiastic and thoughtful school reformer, fighting the teachers unions and their bought-and-paid-for Democratic political pals, to bring hope and educational change to the state of Illinois´ dysfunctional schools. What irks unions and Democrats alike is that DeVos is an unabashed advocate of school choice, which mostly means charter schools and voucher programs.

Just remember one of Hillary´s emails that stated that it was a good idea to keep the voters uninformed so that they could be "easily managed".

And the best way to do that, #1, is to start with the little children in the primary grades of school.

Alert to Dems at the confirmation hearings: Imperative that we take down DeVos so that we can keep control of our hopeless inner city schools and assure that no one has the opportunity to get a quality education.

They are already putting out the lie that she will completely cancel and defund special education.

NNoo time for Trump/Pence/McConnell and Ryan to go wobbly. This is an important appointment. Stonewall!!!!

The DeVos family started the Amway empire. Amway is BIG into free enterprise.

The heading starting with the word ´By´ suggests it is either an accomplished or easily achievable task. IMO they are underestimating Trump. He is not in this business to be ´taken down´.

The Superintendent of Grand Rapids public schools, Teresa Weatherall Neal has expressed great appreciation for the contributions Betsy DeVos has made towards the GR public schools.

Devos will make a great Sec of Ed., she has been involved in public school improvement for many years here in Michigan.

One can observe the results of Democrats and Unions by watching the tears running down the faces of people in the “Farewell” audience last night!

God Bless the little children. They don’t have a chance, what with the schools and the liberal parents pouring nonsense into their heads.

Before she leaves in 4-8 years, she needs to have gutted DOE, and then turn off the lights at the end. We do not want the fedgov involved in education at any level, for any reason.

The Department of Education is the last Democrat Money Laundering Operation to be touched. There never be reform of education in the US, and there will never be an accounting of the DOE.

Reading the NYT smear piece on DeVos, they have nothing. Leftwing "logic" is that because they have nothing, there must be something being hidden.

I suspect that DeVos will be as well prepared as direct, and as unflappable as Sessions was. The question is, is there a Senator on the committee she is facing that will as effectively fill Cruz´s shoes as an advocate? Cruz took on the racist charges head on and shredded them. When the Franken clown popped up, Cruz chopped him off at the knees by pointing out that the old, old info that Franken dredged up was recanted by the original witness just days after it was given. Cruz may as well have stuck a big red nose and a goofy wig on Franken. Cruz is the kind of Senator that needs to be on every committee reviewing a nominee.

They´re not taking anybody down. Their playbook is antiquated, and the tactics that were once so successful in cowing Republicans into submission today only illicit laughter, as was on full display with the buffoonery they engaged in at the Sessions hearing yesterday.

When the liberal democrats ask her a question, and if they´re from inner-city districts with failing schools, she should respond by saying "how has the current system been doing the last 50 years"?

Are children better off today?




Reply 17 - Posted by: greggojo, 1/11/2017 12:24:42 PM     (No. 11104294)

This is a two-pronged essential to Democrat leaders. Not just the union cash cow, but the fear that inner city Black Americans won´t continue to support Democrats if they become well educated (and preventing good education in the inner cities is something that with all of their public grandstanding to the contrary, Democrats have been accomplishing for 50 years). We are in for one h of a fight. But I agree with other posters, these are not typical R´s of past years. They had d well better not go wobbly on DeVos, no matter how much dirt the D´s throw.

Do the Dims actually think that only DeVos is in favor of reforming the disastrous, federally-controlled government-run school system.

Millions of citizens are in line to take up the position and make America Great Again.

If that happens, Trump should send legislation to congress to do away with the education department and give the education funds to the states to run their programs. That should take care of the teachers union.

5 Big Myths About ObamaCare´s Repeal — Busted

Health Reform: Democrats are predicting doom and gloom if Republicans make good on their ObamaCare repeal plans. Aren´t these the same Democrats who promised that ObamaCare would be a huge success? Early Thursday morning, the Senate voted 51-48 for a budget resolution that marks the first step toward the repeal of ObamaCare. Democrats say repealing ObamaCare will strip millions of Americans of insurance, leave people with pre-existing medical conditions unable to find coverage, increase the budget deficit, and be a political nightmare for Republicans. Let´s leave aside for a moment the fact that Democrats also promised that ObamaCare would let you keep your

Fiscal Policy: Question: What do you call it when a major organization´s financial statements are so deceptive and badly kept that even its auditor refuses to render an opinion? Answer: The federal government. That´s right, the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO), the federal government´s accountant, refused to hand down an opinion of the federal government´s financial statements for 2016 "due to deficiencies that have plagued prior financial statements — persistent financial management problems at the Department of Defense (DOD), the government´s inability to account for and reconcile certain transactions, an ineffective process for preparing the consolidated financial statements, and significant uncertainties."

Legacy: Eight years ago, Barack Obama came to the White House to shouts of "yes we can." But on numerous issues, he leaves office on a "no he couldn´t" note. That´s nowhere more true than it is with his bold promises to fundamentally transform the nation´s energy and transportation industries. Obama came into office like a starry-eyed dreamer. He promised a vast network of high-speed rail, a "smart" electric grid, a million electric cars on the roads, a "clean energy economy" creating millions of new green jobs. And he spent lavishly to realize this dream. But as he leaves office,

Small businesses and entrepreneurs have had a rough time of it for these past eight years. New startups and entrepreneurial activity have pretty much been stagnant, weighed down by heavy regulation, high taxes and an economy that´s just been stumbling along. But in recent weeks, there are signs of renewal that could mark a turnaround in the fortunes of small business. Most impressively, the National Federation of Independent Business´ small-business optimism index surged in December by the most since 1980, a year when another maverick conservative-leaning candidate surprised everyone and won the presidency. His name was Reagan. "The December results confirm the sharp

Voting: In yet another move by the Obama administration to stick its thumb in the nation´s eye on the way out, it has decided to have the federal government meddle in state and local elections. It´s yet another terrible decision that Donald Trump is going to have to undo. With almost no notice, Homeland Security chief Jeh Johnson announced that his department was designating the nation´s elections system as "critical infrastructure," thereby giving DHS greater control over how states run their own elections. This is a classic example of a government solution in search of a problem, one that will itself end

At one point in President Obama´s interview with ABC News that aired over the weekend, George Stephanopoulos noted that "the Democratic Party got pretty hollowed out on your watch, about 1,000 seats lost in the Congress, Senate, governors, state houses." Then he asked: "Is that on you?" It was a good question. Since Obama took office, Democrats´ fortunes have plummeted. The party lost 900 seats in state legislatures, 12 governorships, 69 House seats and 13 Senate seats. Clearly, whatever leadership Obama provided, it wasn´t helping Democrats connect with voters across the country. So what was Obama´s response? At first, he

Women all across America are planning to festoon themselves with knitted, pink “pussy power hats” during a march on Washington, D.C. — and other cities — scheduled for January 21, the day after Donald Trump’s presidential inauguration. The organizers of the Pussyhat Project hope to make “a powerful visual statement” at the Women’s March on Washington by having a large number of women show up wearing the hats. The “pussy power hats,” which feature perky cat-like ears, are a cinch to make, organizers say. “Knitters, crocheters and sewers of all levels” can make the hats at home — preferably with neon pink

A growing number of Democrat lawmakers are boycotting Donald Trump´s inauguration this week, in the wake of his remarks about civil rights campaigner-turned-Representative John Lewis over MLK weekend. There are now 17 Democratic Representatives saying they will spurn Trump´s swearing-in in favor of focusing on their constituents or even taking part in protests and ´resistance´ movements. The uptick in furious members of Congress comes after Trump derided Lewis on Twitter Saturday, saying the lawmaker - who once campaigned alongside Martin Luther King Jr - was ´all talk, no action´. Trump´s criticism came after Lewis´s Friday promise not to attend the

They are some of the biggest names in the Republican national security firmament, veterans of past GOP administrations who say, if called upon by President-elect Donald Trump, they stand ready to serve their country again. But their phones aren’t ringing. Their entreaties to Trump Tower in New York have mostly gone unanswered. In Trump world, these establishment all-stars say they are “PNG” — personae non gratae. Their transgression was signing one or both of two public “Never Trump” letters during the campaign, declaring they would not vote for Trump and calling his candidacy a danger to the nation.

The biggest news story of the day, apparently, is the dustup between Rep. John Lewis and Donald Trump, about which I wrote this morning. Although the story has little real significance, the Associated Press, the most influential news source in the U.S., spins it furiously to drive its anti-Trump narrative. Start with the headline: “Trump unleashes Twitter attack against civil rights legend.” Most people only read headlines, and this one gives no clue that it was Lewis, not Trump, who started the fight by saying on Meet the Press that Trump will be an illegitimate president. And Lewis is identified

Mr. Garfinkle of Garfinkle’s New Method Hebrew School in Milwaukee used to frequently echo King Solomon’s admonition; “There’s nothing new under the sun.” I was reminded of that this week when the rapidly unfolding “scandal” of Trump’s purported dealings with Russia hit the news. It has more than a few similarities with the Dan Rather faked-up story of GW Bush’s National Guard service where an anonymous, never-found source supposedly gave Bill Burkett a demonstrably fake report and Dan Rather ran with it. This time a Bush (Jeb) is involved but as an instigator of the story, not a victim. John

A growing group of Democratic lawmakers will boycott President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration Friday as a protest of Trump’s worldview and his criticism of civil rights icon John Lewis, congressman of Georgia. There are now more than 30 House Democrats — 31, at last count — who have declared that they will not attend the inauguration on Capitol Hill this week. The number rose sharply after Trump tweeted Saturday that Lewis is “all talk, talk, talk” and should “finally focus on the burning and crime infested inner-cities.” Lewis, who sees Trump’s Nov. 8 win as illegitimate because of Russia’s alleged interference

No venue will be safe from protestors, including the inaugural parade, inaugural balls, and every place in betweeen. Daily Caller: On the day of President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration protesters are planning an anti-capitalist march, road blockades and disruptions to inauguration balls. The protests will likely include property destruction, a source with intimate knowledge of the protest plans told The Daily Caller Friday. The blockades are not limited to roads but will also be at every security checkpoint, the source said. The source added that the
