Trump´s education budget puts students
ahead of special interests

Washington Examiner, by Lance Izumi

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 3/3/2018 12:38:56 PM

President Trump´s proposed 2019 education budget, with its elimination of 29 ineffective or duplicative programs, drew howls from special-interest groups. Despite their hyperventilation, the president rightly focuses his spending priorities on the needs of students rather than on what the Washington spending lobby wants. Trump proposes a 5 percent reduction in discretionary federal education spending below the level enacted last year, going from $66.8 billion down to $63.2 billion. American Federation of Teachers chief Randi Weingarten called the cuts “cruel,” and claimed that the administration “shows that they failed to learn anything.” Yet it is Weingarten and the guardians of

Teacher unions and the other special interest groups are racist. They don´t want minority and lower income students to have access to a good education. When Rod Paige called the Teacher Unions terrorist organizations he was right.

Thank God for President Donald Trump.

While the dogs attack him, Jared and Ivanka, his cabinet is quietly Making America Great Again. DeVoss, Perry, Carson, Zinke, Tillerson, Ross, Lichtzinger, Mnuchin, all thorns on the Democrats´ side. Such good times to watch, enjoy.

Saturday Night Live has taken a rare break from mocking President Donald Trump, with one segment even admitting it´s been a good week for the administration. Unusually, both guest host Amy Schumer´s monologue and the episode´s cold open avoided politics - a rarity in the Trump era, in which Alec Baldwin typically appears to impersonate the president. The Weekend Update segment devoted only three minutes to politics, and the episode´s only other jab at Trump was a throwaway line during a parody of The Handmaid´s Tale. The episode opened with several of the cast members´ mothers joining them on the

On this weekend’s broadcast of “Fox News Sunday,” former Bush senior advisor Karl Rove said it was “reprehensible” to say Gina Haspel is morally unfit to be the CIA director because of her involvement in enhanced interrogation after 9/11. Rove said, “I think it’s reprehensible if people say she’s morally unfit because she was following a program that was carefully crafted by the lawyers and approved as being within our international obligations and the statutes of the United States. It has now been ruled by an act of Congress to no longer be applicable, no longer be a tool to

Sunday on MSNBC’s “Live With Alex Witt,” Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN) called President Donald Trump a “600-pound, orange elephant.” When asked about using impeachment as issue in the 2018 midterm elections, Cohen said, “Nancy Pelosi is a very outstanding politician and official. I have great respect for her. I agree with her it’s not going to happen with the Republican majority. Republicans have turned blindly against what is obviously violations of the Emoluments Clause, what could be proven and put out by Mueller as obstruction of justice and other violations that could lead to impeachment. Republicans won’t do it. It’s

The top Democrat on the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence acknowledged in a recent interview that contacts between Trump campaign associates and Russians could be “a set of coincidences” rather than collusion. “I’m reserving my final judgement until we’ve seen all the witnesses we need to see, and we’ve gotten all the facts. So I’m going to hold off,” Virginia Sen. Mark Warner said in an interview with The New Yorker’s David Remnick when asked whether he believes that Trump associates conspired with the Kremlin to influence the 2016 presidential election.

White House leakers used a raft of excuses Sunday to justify sharing sensitive Trump administration information with reporters, reasons ranging from a way to settle personal scores to dealing with a confrontational work environment within the West Wing. "The most common substantive leaks are the result of someone losing an internal policy debate," a senior administration official told Axios. "By leaking the decision, the loser gets one last chance to kill it with blowback from the public, Congress, or even the President." The aide then likened working in the White House to "kind of like being in a never-ending ´Mexican

JERUSALEM, Israel — Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu welcomed the official U.S. delegation to Jerusalem Sunday evening, on the day before the transfer of the American embassy to Israel’s capital. “Our people will be eternally grateful for [President Trump’s] decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and to move the American Embassy there tomorrow,” Netanyahu declared. “Tomorrow will be an historic day for our people and for our state.” Netanyahu delivered his remarks at an official reception at Israel’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs before an audience of American and Israeli guests.

CNN senior media reporter Brian Stelter kicked off Sunday’s Reliable Sources by complaining about a tweet President put out last week citing a Media Research Center study, which found 90 percent of evening network coverage of the President was negative. Of course, CNN took issue with the facts and put together a lineup of media figures to beat up on the President for criticizing them. Among the group was CNN Chief International correspondent Christiane Amanpour, who wasted no time in lashing out at President Trump and denouncing his favorable attitude towards Fox News. “I have been talking about this

It turns out that if you also want to know any possibly incriminating secrets about Winfrey, King is the one who will crack. During her interview on The Ellen Show earlier this week, King shared with Ellen DeGeneres that while she had never smoked “a marijuana cigarette,” the Almighty Oprah, indeed, has. “Oprah has also smoked a little marijuana, too, I don’t mind saying,” she said.

We have an upcoming summit with North Korea on the books. We’ve withdrawn from a terrible nuclear agreement with Iran. And there’s a new bill to fix the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals bill that’s being mulled on the Hill. A group of moderate Republicans are trying to force House Speaker Paul Ryan to hold a vote on the bill that at first, seemed to supposedly have the votes to pass. Early reports claimed there were 218 people onboard with moving forward this this bill. Mr. Ryan is not committed to holding a debate, though he supports a DACA fix.

Conservative syndicated columnist George Will wrote this week that Vice President Mike Pence has “become America’s most repulsive public figure.” Why does Will think Pence deserves this absurd slur? Apparently, the columnist has found the vice president guilty of the heinous crime of being a decent man. Will announced in 2016 that he was leaving the Republican Party over the nomination of Donald Trump as the GOP’s presidential candidate. So it is no surprise that Will has become part of the so-called “resistance” to the duly elected president of the United States. He’s even become a contributor to NBC and its

Shortly after President Donald Trump withdrew the United States from the Iran nuclear deal last Tuesday, an adviser to a top Iranian official retaliated by dropping a bombshell threat. The threat concerned the president’s plan to reimpose sanctions on Iran: An adviser to H.J.Ansari Zarif, the deputy for parliamentary and Iranian affairs within Iran’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, specifically threatened to expose every corrupt official who accepted bribes to make the Iran deal happen three years ago. “If Europeans stop trading with Iran and don’t put pressure on US then we will reveal which western politicians and how much money they

Sen. Lindsey Graham blasted the ´terrible joke´ a White House aide told about cancer-stricken John McCain and said if his own aide made such an error he would apologize. Graham, who has traveled the globe with McCain and is one of his closest friends in the Senate, spoke after the White House refused to apologize for the crude remark and press secretary Sarah Sanders fumed about leaks rather than condemning the remark. Asked if he was satisfied with the White House response, Graham, a South Carolina Republican, responded: ´No, not really.´ He called Kelly Sadler´s reported joke about McCain´s opposition to Trump CIA

As death flutters around the back-yard deck of Senator John McCain, it’s sad to read reports that the scrappy Sandcutter regrets picking Governor Sarah Palin as his vice presidential running mate and wishes he had instead picked Senator Jos. Lieberman. The only person diminished by this kind of talk is Senator McCain himself, and the heroic Arizonan deserves better.Not that we lack for love of Mr. Lieberman. The Sun was the first newspaper to sketch the rationale for Mr. McCain to bring in Mr. Lieberman as his running mate. That was in an enthusiastic editorial called “The Logic of Lieberman.”

A Nigerian passenger has filed a civil rights lawsuit alleging that United Airlines personnel ejected her and her children from an international flight departing from Houston in 2016 because of her “pungent” odor. The woman says in a federal discrimination suit filed in Houston Friday that she and her minor children were boarding a San Francisco bound plane — the second leg of a three-flight journey from Nigeria to Canada — when an incident occurred involving a white male passenger that escalated to her being asked by United staff to exit the plane.

Former FBI director James Comey likened U.S. President Donald Trump to a self-serving Mafia boss Thursday during a talk in which he defended the decision to reopen the Hillary Clinton email investigation just days before the 2016 vote. Speaking in Toronto, Comey lamented the current state of American politics, suggesting truth has all but disappeared from public discourse. “Ethical leadership is about having external reference points. Near as I can tell, this president only has one reference point and it is internal,” Comey said during a conversation with bookstore executive Heather Reisman. “That’s very similar to a Cosa

A profane tirade during a parent-teacher conference this week at a Dallas elementary school led to a teacher being injured and a woman facing assault charges. The alleged attack happened Tuesday at John Neely Bryan Elementary School in east Oak Cliff. A teacher reported that a woman accused her of "pinching her nephew" and assaulted her during an 11 a.m. parent-teacher conference, according to the arrest warrant. Lakietha Lashell Lawrence, 27, was arrested by Dallas school district police officers on charges of assaulting a public servant. She was taken to the Dallas County Jail.

Washington - Among recent pilgrims to the Arizona ranch of Senator John McCain was Joe Biden. The Republican, who has an aggressive form of brain cancer, urged the former vice-president to “not walk away” from politics, Biden told the New York Times. It did not take much imagination to see this as a metaphorical shove – into the next race for the White House. Biden has the desire, the pedigree – and the rage. On Friday, incensed by reports that a White House aide had dismissed McCain with the terse comment “he’s dying anyway”, the 75-year-old Democrat let rip, declaring

From its start, the Trump administration has been plagued by charges of “chaos.” From the revolving door of senior staffers — including two secretaries of state, three national security advisers and two chiefs of staff — to the president’s brash and sometimes boorish personal style, to his politically incorrect taunt-tweeting, Donald Trump has refused to conform to his political opponents’ conventional notions of what constitutes an effective White House operation. And yet, the economy is humming, hosts of regulations have been rolled back, the unemployment rate is down, job openings are soaring, taxes have been cut and black

After months of swaggering hesitation, President Trump finally announced the United States’ withdrawal from the nuclear deal with Iran, to which Britain, France, Russia, China, Germany and the European Union are also parties. This action tramples on European leaders, who urged Mr. Trump to exercise restraint in the interest of international security and multilateralism. Federica Mogherini, the European Union’s high representative for foreign affairs and security policy, reacted to Mr. Trump’s announcement with a sharp statement. The European Union and the rest of the international community, she said, would “preserve this nuclear deal.” The question is how. Notwithstanding an abundance of

Senator Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) filed legislation Wednesday that would significantly strengthen the power of organized labor. Sanders, along with senators Cory Booker (D., N.J.), Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.), and Kirsten Gillibrand (D., N.Y.), among others, introduced the Workplace Democracy Act, which would make it easier for workers to unionize and enter into contractual negotiations with employers. The legislation comes at a time when the number of unionized workers in the American economy is at an all-time low. Fueled in part by the rise of globalization and technological advancement, labor membership has steadily declined from 20.1 percent in 1983 to 10.7 percent
