Lawmaker to Push Bill
Requiring Dinesh D´Souza´s
´America´ Be Shown in Schools

Hollywood Reporter, by Paul Bond

Original Article

Posted By:Harlowe, 7/25/2014 11:22:48 AM

Florida GOP state senator Alan Hays said he’ll propose a bill mandating that students in the 1,700 Florida public high schools and middle schools are to be shown the film unless their parents object. A Florida state senator plans to introduce a bill that would make Dinesh D´Souza´s docudrama, America, required viewing for most teenagers in the state, The Hollywood Reporter learned on Friday. Republican Alan Hays said he’ll introduce in November his one-page bill that simply states that students in the 1,700 Florida public high schools and middle schools are to be shown the film unless their parents object.

Comments:
Should be mandatory viewing in all public schools and colleges throughout the country.

Bravo Other states should follow his lead. Lord knows, but it might help to offset the liberal/socialist propaganda being taught at present.

they forced my kids to watch that awful Al Gore movie about global warming. It was forced viewing for the last 7 years! I think they finally stopped forcing the kids to have to accept it as truth last year. But I am sure all those teachers are still showing it. I live in the SF Bay Area.

Fair is fair. If Michael Moore´s films and Al Gore´s film are being shown this should be available as well.

Yeah, let´s get the Feds to mandate one more thing. I don´t have any quarrel with it being included in the curriculum, but I´m not on board for this wrong-headed idea, even if I agree with the movie´s content.

#3 & #4 -- it was probably the local educrats that made that decision, not the Feds.

Why don´t these clowns put their energies into real problems? There are dozens of pressing issues that Congress ought to be addressing in a meaningful way, instead of parading their moral conceits which actually contradict the purpose and intent of a free society.

Misdirected indignation... I believe it´s the Florida State Senate that is considerring the legislation.

I saw the movie Monday, and was impressed. And I´d like everybody to see it! (The "believers" are the ones who are flocking to see it, I´m sure.) I´m a little skeptical that legislation should mandate a viewing, however.

You´re right, #9 -- missed that.

But I still think even a state mandate is wrong-headed for the same reason.

This magnificent documentary film presents historical facts about the USA which have been TOTALLY ignored by the lefty/lib´s history revisionists. It is a current MUST SEE!!! All students need the truth about America as they will learn the good far outweighs the bad. ´´America...,´´ reminds us, ´freedom isn´t free.´ America´s Constitutional compass goal & the heart of the American people have always cherished life, Liberty and Justice for ALL.

#8-10,#9 - IF the public education system provided a curriculum as existed until the 1960s, it would not be necessary to consider legislation to counter revisionist history now being used to indoctrinate students. Well-intentioned citizens have been exceedingly tolerant of the deliberate encroachment of a liberal agenda that now threatens the existence of this country’s freedoms and survival as intended by our Founding Fathers. Benjamin Franklin’s response to the woman who asked at the close of the Constitutional Convention of 1787: “Well, Doctor, what have we got—a Republic or a Monarchy” “A Republic, if you can keep it.”

The elevator slides open and a large 2-by-3-foot dog photo welcomes you to the 29th floor. It’s Bark, Cleveland’s only indoor dog park — one of dozens of lifestyle amenities at the new Metropolitan Hotel in downtown Cleveland. Its very existence serves to underscore the playful whimsy that characterizes the new boutique hotel, which borrows from the legacy of the old Cleveland Trust Bank at E. Ninth Street and Euclid Avenue with double-take details paying tribute to the past. The just-opened hotel — officially called the Metropolitan at the 9 — is one of the iconic properties in the Autograph

COLUMBUS: Ohio´s elections chief says an early voting decision from a federal judge must be appealed. Republican Secretary of State Jon Husted (HYOO´-sted) says the ruling could lead to different rules for voting across the swing state´s 88 counties. U.S. District Judge Peter Economus on Thursday blocked an Ohio law that trims early voting, ordering Husted to set an expanded voting schedule. The judge barred Husted from preventing boards from adopting additional early voting hours beyond his order.

COLUMBUS: A federal judge on Thursday temporarily blocked an Ohio law that scales back early voting, ordering the state’s elections chief to set additional voting times just ahead of the fall election. The ruling from U.S. District Judge Peter Economus comes in a lawsuit filed by civil rights groups, several predominantly black churches and others challenging two early voting measures in the perennial presidential battleground state. One is a directive from Republican Secretary of State Jon Husted that established uniform early voting times and restricted weekend and evening hours.

Senate Budget Committee ranking member Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) is putting a call out to the American people: He needs help to kill President Barack Obama’s plans to grant executive amnesty to millions of illegal aliens. Sessions wants Americans to melt Congress’ phone lines, demanding their members make a precondition of any border crisis bill that Obama’s executive order amnesty via the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and any future plans be stopped.

A new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) report reveals that President Barack Obama has attended only 42.1% of his daily intelligence briefings (known officially as the Presidential Daily Brief, or PDB) in the 2,079 days of his presidency through September 29, 2014. The GAI report also included a breakdown of Obama’s PDB attendance record between terms; he attended 42.4% of his PDBs in his first term and 41.3% in his second. The GAI’s alarming findings come on the heels of Obama’s 60 Minutes comments on Sunday, wherein the president laid the blame for the Islamic State’s (ISIS) rapid rise squarely at

President Obama shared an elevator earlier this month with an armed security contractor who has three felony convictions relating to assault and battery, in the latest report of a serious violation of Secret Service security protocols. Multiple sources confirmed to Fox News the incident, which took place in an elevator during Obama´s Sept. 16 visit to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta. The incident was first reported by The Washington Post and the Washington Examiner. The latest embarrassment for the Secret Service comes after agency Director Julia Pierson told lawmakers at a Tuesday hearing

President Barack Obama has taken a lot of flack since his Sunday night “60 Minutes” interview, in which he blamed the intelligence community for his failure to tackle the threat posed by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. And that is right and proper. Because not only was his excuse of blaming us a lie, but when questioned on his lie, White House press secretary Josh Earnest doubled down with a whole new lie — both of which are easily, publicly proven false. On Sunday, Obama said the intelligence community had underestimated the rise of ISIS, saying in an interview

Former President Jimmy Carter claimed Wednesday that he would have been re-elected and beaten Ronald Reagan in 1980 if had been more “manly” in his dealings with Iran. Interviewed by the show "CNBC Meets," Carter repeated his belief that the failed mission to free American hostages held in Tehran killed his chances, but then added that had he gone to war, America would have rewarded him with a second term in 1980.

The Obama administration found itself scrambling on Tuesday to defend President Barack Obama for his lackluster 42% attendance record on daily intelligence briefings, a finding from a new report issued by the non-partisan Government Accountability Institute (GAI). When asked about the GAI revelation on Fox News, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki appeared flustered and unprepared. "Well, I have no validation of those statistics," said Psaki. "There are a range of ways that you can get your intelligence briefings on the road, in the White House, and I know that he receives those whenever he can."

The federal agency scheduled a media briefing at 5:30 p.m. from its headquarters in Atlanta. Dallas County officials are expected to participate. Dallas County went through a day-long anxiety attack Tuesday, waiting to hear if the first Ebola diagnosis in the nation would happen here.

The sympathetic news media is avoiding mentioning his name, instead they are blaming the lack of a football intro for the massive collapse in ratings Sunday night for President Barack Obama’s appearance on CBS’ 60 Minutes. Americans turned away from watching Obama even though he was being interviewed about the nation’s new war on ISIS. For example, Deadline Hollywood didn’t even mention Obama’s 60 Minutes interview when reporting on the drop in viewers. “With no football lead-in, CBS’ Sunday lineup fell from last week. As expected, the drop was steepest at 7 PM, with 60 Minutes (1.1) off by 69%

Well, that didn’t take long. Just two weeks into the new season of “The View,” co-hosts Rosie O’Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg tore into each other during a commercial break — in front of their stunned studio audience. The spat erupted Thursday after Goldberg interrupted O’Donnell to go to a commercial break before the mother of five was finished commenting in a “Hot Topic” discussion about spanking children on the ABC gabfest. O’Donnell refuses to wear an earpiece to stay in contact with producers while the live show is airing, so she had no clue it was time to stop talking.

Kansas Tea Party supporters are threatening to sit out the state’s pivotal Senate election, potentially dealing another blow to the reelection hopes of Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kan.). Though schisms within the GOP base rarely have such an outsized impact on a general election contest, the lack of support from the conservative base could be devastating to the vulnerable Roberts’s chances against surging independent Greg Orman. Multiple sources tell The Hill that a group of Tea Party leaders in the state are meeting Wednesday to try to decide whether they should go to bat for the incumbent this fall or sit out of

Sacramento, Calif. - Gov. Jerry Brown on Tuesday signed legislation imposing the nation's first statewide ban on single-use plastic bags, driven to action by a buildup of litter and damage to aquatic ecosystems. A national coalition of plastic bag manufacturers immediately said it would seek a voter referendum to repeal the law, which is scheduled to take effect in July 2015. Under SB270, plastic bags will be phased out of large grocery stores starting next summer and convenience stores and pharmacies in 2016. The law allows grocers to charge a fee of at least 10 cents for using paper bags. State Sen. Alex Padilla, D-Los Angeles,

Video of Chelsea Clinton and Marc Mezvinsky leaving the hospital with their newborn daughter apparently reminds CNN anchor Erin Burnett of when the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge went before cameras outside a London hospital before taking home their newborn son Prince George last year. Burnett made the remark towards the end of her program while narrating video footage of the couple exiting a New York City hospital with Bill and Hillary Clinton just steps behind them. Of course when William and Kate left the hospital with their bundle of joy, the proud royal parents had the moment to themselves, not
