Teachers Union Holds Schools Hostage Until Police Are Defunded, Charter Schools Shut Down


Reported By Ryan Foley | Published July 13, 2020 at 12:48pm

The United Teachers Los Angeles has released a list of demands that it argues must be met before schools can reopen in America’s second-largest city. While some of the proposals might seem reasonable in light of the coronavirus pandemic, others sound like they were crafted by New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Members of the Los Angeles Unified School District’s teachers union apparently have adapted Rahm Emanuel’s phrase “never let a good crisis go to waste” as their slogan. At the very least, the policy paper put together by the United Teachers Los Angeles containing its insane demands illustrates just how political teachers unions have become.

The 35,000-member teachers union sees the coronavirus as a perfect opportunity to demand the enactment of a far-left agenda that it supported long before COVID-19 arrived in America. According to the political activists at the helm of UTLA, “The Safe and Equitable Conditions for Starting LAUSD in 2020-21” include;

  • the defunding of police,

  • a federal bailout of LA schools and

  • the abolition of charter schools.

While the document acknowledged that “the CARES and HEROES Acts provided funding for K-12,” it complained that the district still needed more money. In addition, the section on the desired “Federal Support” for reopening LAUSD schools included a demand for “Medicare for All.”

As for the section on “State Support,” the document calls on the state of California to implement a “millionaire’s tax” and a “wealth tax.” While the teachers seem quite confident that the massive redistribution of wealth would result in much-desired revenue, they failed to take into account the fact that many millionaires would flee the state the second the higher taxes were imposed.

The most ridiculous demands came in the section on “Local Support.” Calling on local leaders to “defund police,” the brains behind the left-wing wish list urged elected officials to “shift the astronomical amount of money devoted to policing, to education and other essential needs such as housing and public health.”

Apparently, the people behind the UTLA paper aren’t bothered by the fact that homicides in their city rose by 250 percent in the first week of June as anti-law enforcement sentiment first swept through major American cities.

This shouldn’t come as much of a shock. Last month, Cecily Myart-Cruz, the union’s president, described the police as a symbol of “white supremacy” that needed to be dismantled.

Not surprisingly, the document had few kind words for charter schools, which teachers unions see as an enormous threat to their monopolistic power. UTLA said it wants a “charter moratorium,” but this radical list of demands should make Los Angeles parents who do not subscribe to the dictates of cultural marxism want to send their children to charter schools more than ever.

No document filled with left-wing demands would be complete without a call for “Financial Support for Undocumented Students and Families.”

It looks like President Donald Trump had it right when he declared that “the Democrats don’t want to open schools in the Fall for political reasons.”

This document should make Americans eternally grateful for the 2018 Janus decision in which the Supreme Court ruled that “public employees will no longer be required to pay involuntary agency fees to special-interest groups.” Nothing epitomizes the phrase “special-interest group” like a teachers union, which uses those agency fees to fund far-left groups such as the Center for American Progress and Media Matters.

The release of the UTLA demands comes just weeks before school is set to resume in Los Angeles on Aug. 18.

Education Secretary Betsy DeVos has made it clear to the nation’s governors that at the beginning of the next school year, “School must reopen, they must be fully operational.” For the most part, she is right. Schools should reopen in the fall.

However, in a place like Los Angeles, where advancing a political agenda is more important to the teachers than educating the next generation, parents should seriously consider homeschooling or sending their children to a charter or private school. Only then will liberal activists moonlighting as teachers in Los Angeles and other parts of the country get the message that many Americans do not support the push among some schools to reject “objectivity” in favor of indoctrinating America’s students with left-wing propaganda.

School Principal Gets the Boot Because She Was Critical of BLM Pressures in a Facebook Post


Reported By Ryan Foley | Published June 22, 2020 at 9:02am

Tiffany Riley, the principal of Windsor High School in Windsor, Vermont, faced the wrath of the PC police after failing to fully and unequivocally endorse Black Lives Matter in a Facebook post earlier this month. The backlash was so severe that she ended up losing her job.

According to the Valley News, Riley’s post June 10 made it clear that she believes that “black lives matter,” but she added a caveat that caught the ire of the leftist mob: “I DO NOT agree with coercive measures taken to get this point across; some of which are falsified in an attempt to prove a point.”

“I do not think that people should be made to feel they have to choose black race over human race,” Riley wrote, adding: “While I understand the urgency to feel compelled to advocate for black lives, what about our law enforcement?”

She also declared that “just because I don’t walk around with a BLM sign should not mean I’m a racist.”

Sadly, according to many in Windsor, including the school board, her failure to “walk around with a BLM sign” does make her a racist.

The Mount Ascutney School Board, “uniformly appalled” by her words, voted unanimously to place Riley on paid leave June 14.

The Mt. Ascutney School Board has voted unanimously to place Windsor School principal, Tiffany Riley, on paid leave immediately, following a Facebook post that ‘uniformly appalled” the board. https://www.wcax.com/content/news/Windsor-School-principal-on-paid-leave-following-appalling-social-media-post-571244001.html

The school board says the post does not reflect the values of the district.

The district’s superintendent, David Becker, said the district will work to put together a “mutually agreed upon severance package” with Riley and justified the decision to let her go by saying, “It’s clear that the community has lost faith in her ability to lead.”

Ridiculously, Becker said he thought Riley’s Facebook page was hacked and indicated that he fully agreed with the criticism that her post was “racist.”

“I felt like a post like that, with those kinds of racial overtones and what I define as pretty much outright racist in my values system, she would have never posted that,” he said.

The fact that Riley’s community would take such umbrage at her comments should not come as a surprise. Windsor County supported Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump by a 2-1 ratio in 2016, and the state as a whole keeps electing democratic socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders.

In an era when American education has become just another arm of the left, Riley’s circumstances are hardly unique. Eric Thompson, a professor who taught at Moreno Valley College in California, was dismissed from his position after daring to sympathize with traditional viewpoints on marriage, gender and sexuality.

In addition to causing professors to lose their jobs, holding conservative positions can also have consequences for students who hold prominent positions on campus. Earlier this month, the president of the Florida State University Student Senate was removed from his post after daring to criticize Black Lives Matter and other liberal organizations deemed heroic by the radical left.

Despite the fact that Riley went out of her way to empathize with the point of view of her opponents and offered analysis consistent with the views of many Americans, she lost her job. What happened to Riley could have a chilling effect that will cause many people to think twice about posting anything critical of Black Lives Matter — a leftist movement dressed up as opposition to racism.

That’s the whole goal.

With Riley’s firing, diversity of opinion in education continues to shrink. According to a 2016 study from Econ Journal Watch, liberal professors outnumber their conservative counterparts by a ratio of 11.5-1 in the departments of economics, history, journalism, law and psychology at “40 leading U.S. universities.”

This liberal uniformity extends into K-12 education, with research conducted by Verdant Labs finding that “there are 97 Democrats for every three Republicans” teaching English and “87 Democrats for every 13 Republicans” among math and science teachers.

Riley’s situation is saddening but not surprising. Hopefully, what happened to her will launch a renewed movement to ensure freedom of speech in education for teachers and students alike, from kindergarten through college.

Adam Carolla and Dennis Prager’s documentary “No Safe Spaces” is definitely a good start.

Transgender Rights: Judge Warns Girls Have No Right to ‘Visual Bodily Privacy’


Reported by DR. SUSAN BERRY |

In Lebanon, Russia uses softer touch to win influence / AFP JOSEPH EID
 

A federal judge is allowing a lawsuit against transgender facilities in a school district to proceed, but warned the student-plaintiffs that, if the government allows boys who claim to be female to use the girls’ bathrooms and locker rooms, then the girls have no right to “visual bodily privacy.”

Judge Jorge Alonso of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois Eastern Division is allowing a lawsuit to proceed against the school district that adopted the Obama-era transgender policy permitting boys claiming to be female to use the girls’ bathrooms, showers, and locker rooms.

However, the judge informed the girls, represented by Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), that, “[s]o far, the right not to be seen unclothed by the opposite sex is not on the Supreme Court’s list.”

The judge wrote:

The crux of this suit is that defendants seek to affirm the claimed genders of students by allowing male students who claim female gender to use privacy facilities (i.e., bathrooms and locker rooms) designated for use by the female sex and female students who claim male gender to use privacy facilities designated for the male sex … District 211 adopted the policy solely to affirm the claimed genders of those students claiming a gender different from their sex at birth.

Alonso continued, saying the school district has adopted the policy of allowing all transgender students to use the restrooms, locker rooms, and showers of their choice, while it insists all other students “must use the restrooms and locker rooms designated for their sex.”

“Before adopting the policy, District 211 did not investigate the reliability of the science underlying gender-affirmation treatments,” the judge wrote. “Nor did it make any effort to understand the impacts such a policy would have on students exposed to opposite-sex, same-gendered students in locker rooms and restrooms.”

The judge acknowledged the school district’s enforcement of the transgender policy has caused the students “embarrassment, humiliation, anxiety, fear, apprehension, stress, degradation and loss of dignity.”

The students “are at continual risk of encountering (and sometimes do encounter), without their consent, members of the opposite sex while disrobing, showering, urinating, defecating and while changing tampons and feminine napkins,” he added.

Christiana Holcomb, ADF legal counsel, said, “a compassionate approach to protecting students’ privacy” is needed.

“We welcome the court’s decision to allow key claims to move forward,” she added in a statement. “The district officially authorizes opposite-sex use of school privacy facilities, and that violates Title IX. Letting boys into girls’ showers, restrooms, and locker rooms is sexual harassment. Students should be confident that their school will protect their privacy and dignity. So far, this school district has failed to do so.”

Alonso did not allow all the claims of the plaintiffs to move forward. He threw out the students’ argument made in the case that they have the right to “bodily privacy,” saying that right refers to physically being touched by others, “not visual bodily privacy.”

Additionally, the judge dismissed the students’ claim that parents’ right to direct their children’s education applies in this case. Alonso said that right refers only to parents’ choice of type of education or schooling.

As Breitbart News reported in 2016, the district opened its schools’ bathrooms to boys claiming to be female without informing parents. Later, it allowed a boy claiming to be transgender into the girls’ locker room after the Obama administration’s Department of Education threatened the district’s federal funding in the amount of $6 million. Initially, the school district arranged for a private dressing area in the girls’ locker room for the boy, but federal officials complained the arrangement stigmatized the student. Consequently, the district allowed the boy to use the girls’ locker room openly as if he were a biological girl.

The Trump administration has rescinded the Obama administration’s policy and restored Title IX to the understanding that “sex” means biological sex – male or female – rather than perceptions or beliefs about one’s gender.

Since Donald Trump won the 2016 presidential election, former President Barack Obama admitted his unpopular transgender policy helped to defeat Trump’s rival, Hillary Clinton.

As the College Fix reported, Tom Petersen, director of community relations for the school district, said, “The District will continue to defend our practices that affirm and support the identity of all our students.”

In a “backgrounder” on the case, ADF wrote, “If our government is powerful enough to command innocent school children to disrobe in the presence of opposite-sex classmates, then there will be little it will not be powerful enough to do.”

“The restroom policy and locker room agreement thus threaten our very liberty to live our lives in accordance with the most basic expectations of common decency, dignity, and privacy in our bodies,” the law firm added.

The case is Students and Parents for Privacy v. School Directors of Township High School District 211, No. 16 C 4945, in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois Eastern Division.

School Board Fires Christian Teacher by 5-0 Vote for Refusing To Use Kid’s Preferred Pronoun


Reported By Benjamin Arie | December 9, 2018 at 5:22pm

A widely respected teacher in Virginia is out of a job and his family now has no income after he committed the gravest of politically-incorrect sins: He used the word “she” to refer to a girl.

On Thursday, Peter Vlaming was released from his teaching position at West Point High School after all five board members voted that his objection to using male pronouns for a female student was a fireable offense.

According to WRIC News, a girl at that school decided that she is transgender, and insisted that everyone call her by a new name. Vlaming had no problem with this, but drew the line at saying “him” and “his” to refer to a student who is biologically female. The teacher and students who know him explained that this wasn’t about purposely insulting the transgender person, but rather about being honest and true to his personal beliefs.

“My religious faith dictates that I am to love and respect everyone, whether I agree with them or not. Because we are all made in God’s image,” Vlaming said in an opening statement at the board meeting which decided his fate.

“I am also aware of, and agree, with speech limits that are placed on public school teachers, concerning matters of religious faith,” the teacher continued. “However, we are here today because a specific worldview is being imposed upon me.”

By all accounts, the teacher tried to accommodate the trans student in many ways but does not believe his faith or personal code permits him to pretend that a girl is now a boy.

“I won’t use male pronouns with a female student that now identifies as a male though I did agree to use the new masculine name but avoid female pronouns,” Vlaming said, according to an online petition that circulated to protect his job. Over 2,500 people sided with him.

“Administration is requiring that I use masculine pronouns in any and every context at school. I was informed that any further instances of using female pronouns would be grounds for termination,” the teacher continued.

For their part, the school is claiming that it’s an issue of tolerance … yet they seem to be demonstrating intolerance themselves.

“We do not and cannot tolerate discrimination in any form, or actions that create a hostile environment for any member of our school family,” declared the school board.

It apparently didn’t dawn on them that firing a member of their “school family” for his personal views was fairly hostile.

“What could be worse for your family than being fired from your job for not lying and violating conscience?” wondered Robert A. J. Gagnon, a Harvard-educated theology expert who is following the controversy.

A large number of students and parents apparently agree. “The public hearing was held in the Chorus Room, only allowing 38 members of the public to sit in on the meeting,” explained The Family Foundation.

“There were well over a hundred people who tried to attend the meeting in the middle of a Thursday afternoon. Students and parents sat in the hallway watching a live-stream of the hearing when they learned they could not get into the room,” the pro-family group continued.

Here’s the bottom line: Schools are supposed to be places where facts, reality, and critical thinking are held up as high standards. Young and often rebellious students should have a voice, but they are not the ones who run our schools.

The female student can still be treated with respect, as this teacher reportedly tried to do. She can still choose for herself how she wants to live outside of the school and make choices for herself when she’s an adult graduate.

But the reality is that this student is biologically a female, try as she might to pretend otherwise. Forcing the rest of the school and society as a whole to bend to her whims is not only contradicting scientific facts, it imposes her views onto other people. In a word, it’s dishonest.

Texas Parents: School District Hiding Transsexual Curriculum from Parents


disclaimerReported By Grace Carr | May 20, 2018 at 2:10pm

The group started an online petition, “Tell Fort Worth ISD To Stop Hiding Transgender Curriculum From Parents,” on Thursday. It already has over 250 signatures.

“Children are being taught — at age 12 under the guise of abstinence — about same-sex attraction, gender identity and gender expression,” said Zeb Pent, a spokesman for Stand for Fort Worth.

Forth Worth 2016 guidelines allow students identifying as transgender to use whatever restroom corresponds with their gender identity. Sex-ed programs in other states have also been causing chaos. A California school district told parents in February they can’t opt their kids out of a new sex education course covering abortion, homosexuality and transgender issues.

Delaware is considering adopting a policy allowing young students to choose whatever name, gender or race they want under a veil of school protection mandating the parents not be informed of these decisions unless the student explicitly wishes the parent be included.

A similar set of guidelines from Chicago Public Schools instructs staff to not tell parents about their child’s gender transition without the child’s permission.

Policy guidance from the Massachusetts Department of Education also instructs school personnel to speak with students first before discussing their gender nonconformity or transgender status with the student’s parent or guardian.

Today’s Ann Coulter Letter: “Racial Quotas Kill Kids”


Commentary by Ann Coulter  | 

President Obama did a lot of bad things, but pound for pound, one of the worst was the January 2014 “Dear Colleague” letter sent jointly by his Education and Justice Departments to all public schools threatening lawsuits over racial discrimination in student discipline. The letter came after years of his administration browbeating schools for their failure to discipline every race of student at the same rate.

As the Huffington Post put it: “American Schools Are STILL Racist, Government Report Finds.” The evidence? “Five percent of white students were suspended annually, compared with 16 percent of black students, according to the report.” Q.E.D. According to theory, there’s NO WAY blacks and Hispanics are doing things that require more school discipline than whites or Asians. So if more black students are expelled than Asians, well, gentlemen, we have our proof of racism. To comply, schools would have to stop suspending black kids for breaking a teacher’s jaw, but suspend Asians for dropping an eraser.

Using the same logic, I could close the achievement gap between blacks and Asians in a single day by going to every principal’s office in the country and burning the transcripts. (Liberals are saying, “You know, that’s not a bad idea.”

The “school-to-prison pipeline” argument for racial quotas in discipline was hatched in education schools and black studies departments. What I want to know is: How did they test the idea?

To validate the theory that recording students’ criminal behavior produces students with criminal records, we divided students into two groups. Group A we continued to suspend when they acted up; Group B we would not suspend no matter what — even when they engaged in their little mischief, like cracking heads with crowbars, dropping teachers off buildings, using a switchblade to cut other students’ eyes out.

RESULT: At the end of the year, Group B had better records.

Were the researchers really in suspense about how the experiment was going to turn out? I could have told them at the beginning that their odds of success were tremendous — unless they forgot halfway through and began accidentally suspending students in Group B. But the Obama administration said: Wow! That’s amazing. Do you think other schools could replicate those results?

One of the administration’s models was Broward County, Florida. Which is kind of important, now that we know that it was Broward’s official policy to make it impossible to arrest students like Nikolas Cruz, thus allowing him to amass a cache of firearms, walk into Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and murder 17 people.

The “school-to-prison pipeline” nonsense may not be the explanation for every school shooting, but it is absolutely the explanation for THIS school shooting. No matter what Cruz did, no matter how many times his crimes were reported to the sheriff or school officials, there was no way a lad with a name like “Nikolas Cruz” was ever going to leave school with a record.

Broward County’s innovative idea of eliminating school discipline captivated Obama’s Department of Education. It was expressly cited by the department’s Civil Rights Division with the notation: “New model for other jurisdictions?”

Last October — nearly a year into the Trump administration — Broward Schools Superintendent Robert W. Runcie humbly noted that the district was receiving “invitations from around the country, including from The White House and Federal Office of Civil Rights, to share details about the historic reforms” on school discipline. Either: Liberals truly believe that all races commit crimes at exactly the same level, frequency and intensity; OR they are willing to have people die for their political agenda.

Conservatives didn’t pick this school shooting as the test case for gun control. It was liberals who were going to ride the Parkland shooting all the way to the midterms. They thought they had a beautiful story about the evil NRA.

Not the mass shooting in Orlando — because of the obvious immigration angle. Not San Bernardino — for the same reason. Not Las Vegas — probably for the same reason, but we’ll never know because law enforcement has issued only lies and nonsense about that shooting.

The media did all the hard work of making sure Parkland was the only topic on anyone’s mind, with everyone demanding that we “do something!”

And then we got the facts. Cruz’s criminal acts were intentionally ignored by law enforcement on account of Broward’s much-celebrated “school-to-prison pipeline” reforms.

Thank God for the internet, or we’d never have known the truth.

Admittedly, most of the harm done by the policy that enabled Cruz is not usually a mass shooting. The main damage done by the “school-to-prison pipeline” idiocy is: broken bones, smashed teeth, traumatized students, making it impossible for other students to learn, having a bad influence on marginal students and teachers sinking into depression.

Check at your local school for the full results. Thanks to the Obama administration, this crackpot theory is sweeping school districts across the nation! The next time Democrats control Congress and the presidency, we will have racial quotas for prisons, too. When that happens, you better hope the government hasn’t taken your guns.

California Presumes Homeschooling Parents Are Child Abusers, Seeks Invasive New Restrictions


Reported By Becky Loggia | February 1, 2018 at 10:54am

URL of the original posting site: https://www.westernjournal.com/california-presumes-homeschooling-parents-child-abusers-seeks-invasive-new-restrictions/

As California lawmakers continue their track-record of controversial decisions, one announcement in particular has caused an outcry for its overreaching presumption: that all homeschoolers must also be child abusers.

According to The Washington Examiner, the plan set out by lawmakers would be to force parents into proving to the government that they are, in fact, fit to be a parent. The homeschooling parent — per legal requirement — would have to meet the government’s required checklist via home visits, interviews, and other oversights, effectively increasing the burden on the parent to prove themselves parentally fit. 

And many have expressed concern over stripping away the legally protected option of homeschooling and deeming it as absurdly unconstitutional.

The decision seems to be in light of the horrifying case of David and Louise Turpin who were registered as homeschoolers to the 13 children that authorities found chained, malnourished and abused. Setting logic aside, lawmakers have set their emotions to focus on the sole aspect of the couple being homeschooling parents, rather than the fact that there were psychological issues at play long before the couple even conceived.

It’s an extreme example to try and bolster the controversial plan to increase government regulations when it comes to children and their education, yet data about the benefits of homeschooling may work against them. A recent piece by Chris Weller for Business Insider gives five strong reasons why kids in today’s world of technology, online classes and apps might actually be better-off than their publicly educated peers.

“Homeschooled kids have the same access to online learning, friendships, and extracurricular activities as the typical public school student,” Weller summarizes. “But without many of the drawbacks, like standardized lesson plans and bullying.”

Furthermore, there is little to no data that proves — or suggests — that homeschooled kids are abused by their parents or even at greater risk of being a victim of parental abuse, yet standardized lesson plans have routinely been called out by parents nationwide.

Lawmakers continue to use extreme cases like the Turpins and veiled data to prove their point, pushing out an agenda that criminalizes homeschooling — just one agenda among many which American citizens seem to be blind to.

“I’m routinely astounded by the degree to which Americans will be outraged by government abuses that take place in far-off lands, while remaining uninterested in similar abuses right here in their very midst,” wrote senior editorial writer Steven Greenhut for Foundation for Economic Education.

Greenhut’s article was one of many that chronicled the outrageous attempt at the liberal state to strip away fundamental basic rights, including that of every parent: to educate their own child as they see fit. Though there are current laws that protect those parents, Greenhut cautioned America to take a closer look at just how far lawmakers will go to invade the privacy of a household, likening it to totalitarian countries where “anything not expressly allowed is forbidden.”

“Only someone with an ideological axe to grind could find illegality in the practice of homeschooling.”

Student’s T-Shirt Steals Show During Melania Visit


Reported By Ben Marquis | October 24, 2017 at 3:11pm

URL of the original posting site: https://conservativetribune.com/students-t-shirt-steals-show/?

First lady Melania Trump — joined by Education Secretary Betsy DeVos — paid a visit to a school in Detroit on Monday afternoon to spend some time speaking with the children.

According to Politico, Trump spoke to the students about identifying and guarding against the act of bullying, and urged them “be yourself” while also making sure to treat each other with “respect and compassion.”

On top of that, she also urged the children to always say “no” to alcohol, cigarettes and drugs, and joined the students in the cafeteria to promote her “No One Eats Alone” campaign that encourages students to take it upon themselves to join others sitting alone at a table at lunch time.

While the visit went quite well and Trump was well-received by the children — with whom she is obviously at ease — one particular student garnered some attention for the shirt that he was wearing during the visit, according to Independent Journal Review.

The young boy was wearing what appeared to be a Nike T-shirt bearing the words “Destroy Excuses,” a message likely intended as a challenge for those pushing to improve themselves in their workouts or athletics, but one that can also be applied to just about every other aspect of life.

To be sure, that message needs to be heard by failed Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, who can’t seem to come up with enough excuses as to why she lost the 2016 election, as well as the rest of her Democrat Party, which always seem able to find an excuse for bad behavior from anybody … provided they share the same liberal ideology.

The “Destroy Excuses” message also needs to be taken to heart by the Republican Party, which for years have begged and pleaded with voters to grant them more control and power to push forward their agenda — yet have done next to nothing but offer up excuses now that they hold the House, Senate, and the presidency.

In the rest of the non-politicized world (or what little that’s left of it), the message of destroying excuses can be applied to one’s job, studies, relationships or virtually any other of life’s endeavors in which obstacles need to be overcome, not excused and allowed to persist.

This young student’s T-shirt bore a message that exemplifies the attitude of Trump and his supporters, one of taking responsibility, assigning accountability and persevering towards victory no matter what. It is a message we all should adopt and hold dear.

HS Science Team Names Rocket After Trump Because It “Conquers All”

Advertisement – story continues below

Part of being the president is hosting all sorts of visitors to the White House. President Donald Trump appeared to have had a blast doing just that with a group of North Carolina students. The high-schoolers, preparing for a national rocketry competition, stopped by to show off their competition-winning rocket that they named after the president himself.

Trump and students from Victory Christian Center School in Charlotte met in the Oval Office on May 12 to discuss the Team America Rocketry Challenge.

“Guess what the name of the rocket is?” Trump said to gathered reporters. “It’s called ‘Trump.’”

“It better work well!” he joked to the students.

When Trump asked why they had named their rocket after him, one student replied, “Simply because it conquers all.”

 

The media did show the meeting in the Oval Office, albeit quite briefly, and most certainly didn’t dwell on it.

The media also didn’t dwell on another important fact: the students were minorities who had been saved from their wretched public schools by a special voucher program in North Carolina that helps low- and moderate-income families afford private school tuition, according to The Charlotte Observer.

Trump has made it quite clear, both through his own words and the appointment of Betsy DeVos to serve as Education Secretary, that he is in favor of voucher programs like the North Carolina Opportunity Scholarships and other programs like charter schools that help break up the failing public school monopolies that trap many low-income students in terrible schools that prevent them from fully realizing their full potential.

Further debunking the media narratives surrounding Trump, watch the video again and take note of how happy and excited most of the students appeared to be to meet with the president, despite constant suggestions from the media that Trump hates minorities and poor people.

Islam OK, Christianity Illegal in NJ Public Schools


waving flag disclaimerAuthored By Dave Jolly February 23, 2017

A year ago, a new phrase was coined to describe much of the hypocritical attitudes and actions taking place in America. The phrase is ‘selective allowable discrimination’, defined as the practice of allowing discrimination of a selective group while banning discrimination of opposite groups.picture3

For the past fifty years, any semblance of Christianity is discriminated against if it involves any government person or agency. Courts have said that you can’t have schools involved in reading the Bible or praying because someone was or could be offended.

Yet in many of the same schools that actively ban all references to the Bible and Christianity are now reading and teaching the Quran, reciting the Islamic call to prayer, have students reciting that Allah is God, and allowing Muslim students to roll out their prayer rugs and pray to Mecca during school hours. No concern is given to the fact that many non-Muslims are offended.

CP 01

Schools are not allowed to hold a Baccalaureate service for graduating seniors because it’s a Christian based service because non-Christian students might be offended. However, public high schools in Michigan have been allowed to hold girl only proms for their Muslim students caring not if any non-Muslim students are offended.

Many of our military personnel have been ordered to remove any symbols of Christianity from their person or their offices and work stations, especially those stationed in the Middle East. They’re not allowed to wear a cross around their neck or as earrings, nor are they allowed to have a Bible on their desks as it will offend Muslims, yet Muslim members of the military are allowed to have Islamic items out in the open, caring not that it offends non-Muslims.against-america

Anyone can go on most social media or mainstream media and say anything they want about Christianity and Christians. You can portray an image of Jesus in a jar of urine and it’s okay, but draw a cartoon about Islam and you best go into hiding. However, if you say or post anything against Islam and Muslims, you can find yourself banned from the social media site, like Facebook. Say anything against Muslims in general on the mainstream media and you will more than likely be suspended or fired.christian-persecution

Today, we see another example of ‘selective allowable discrimination’ in the public schools of New Jersey and a growing number of parents are upset over it. The issue is the teaching of Islam as part of the normal classroom curriculum while at the same time, the teaching of Christianity is illegal.

EAGNews reports:

“Parents of students at Chatham Middle School are calling on the board of education to eliminate lessons on Islam from the 7th grade social studies curriculum they believe proselytizes the religion.”

 

“Several parents attended a board meeting Monday to take aim at materials distributed to students through a ‘World Cultures and Geography’ class they believe cross the line, Tap into Chatham reports.”

“The parents emailed board members copies of the lessons they believe violate the district’s policy that ‘no religious beliefs be promoted or disparaged’ and handed copies to others in attendance at the meeting, as well.”

“‘In the Middle East and North Africa unit of the class students are taught about the five pillars of Islam in great detail, there are two videos on it, a 20-page PowerPoint presentation, class work, homework, and testing,’ parent Libby Hilsenrath told the board. “In this unit, there is no mention of any other religion or teaching of it.”

“‘… When it comes to teaching other religions at this level, it’s not done,’ she said.”

“Hilsenrath went over many of the objectionable homework assignments with board members in detail, including lessons that require students to memorize and write the Islamic conversion prayer.”picture4

Where are the atheists who file lawsuits against everything that hints of Christianity in public schools? Atheists have even tried to stop non-school religious clubs and groups. One Christian group met off campus and offered free donuts for students who joined their Bible study and prayer group, and atheists tried to stop them. So where are these same atheist groups when it comes to teaching and promoting Islam in public schools?

Are atheists silent because they fear retribution from Muslims but have never feared any retribution from Christians. Is that further proof that another major difference between Christianity and Islam is that Christianity is the real religion of peace and Islam is not?

Surely, selective allowable discrimination is alive and well in New Jersey public schools. Parents and students have every right to be angry.amen

New Public School Policy: Don’t Tell Parents When Transgender Boys Sleep with Girls on Field Trips!


waving flagBy Onan Coca August 25, 2016

There is a disgusting level of contempt for parents in the modern public school system, and the evidence of this fact is all around us. Whether it’s handing out condoms or implanting IUD’s without parental consent, or mocking family religious beliefs, or attacking parents’ political positions, or even this latest move by public schools in Maryland.

During a training session for teachers in the Anne Arundel County Public School District instructing teachers at how to best support transgender students, Bob Mosier, the chief communications officer for the district, told teachers that they should allow “biological” boys to sleep in the same rooms as “biological” girls on field trips… and then he instructed the teachers NOT TO TELL PARENTS about it.

I kid you not.

“So, many of you might be asking yourselves, ‘So I’m at an overnight field trip, and I have student who’s biologically a male, identifies as a female, and we’ve worked with that student and her family, and that student wants to sleep in the dorms, or whatever sleeping arrangements are, with the females.  They don’t want to sleep in a room by themselves; they want to sleep with the rest of the females. So what do we do?

“And the answer is, they sleep with the females. That’s not the easy answer; it’s the right answer. And in some cases, it’s going to cause issues, because … the private information piece doesn’t allow you to share that with parents of all of the other campers. Right? So that’s difficult.”

Starting about 27:49 into the video below:

Capture

This is such a poorly considered and possibly horribly destructive policy;

  • What happens when a young girl placed in this dangerous situation is sexually assaulted by her transgender classmate?
  • What happens when students begin telling their teachers that they are transgendered simply to have the opportunity to “sleep” with their significant other?
  • What happens when a young lady becomes pregnant and her parents find out that it happened on a school field trip when teachers allowed the young girl to spend the night with a “biological” boy?

Beyond the immediate problems, when did our school systems move from being designed to support parents and families, to being allowed to override the wishes of the parents in raising their children? This is an even more dangerous precedent than you might realize at first blush.

If a school (or a teacher) can unilaterally make as important a decision as allowing boys and girls to sleep together, what else could be under their purview?

  • Could the school teach our students that our values, beliefs, morality, tradition, history, and faith are all wrong?
  • Could the schools tell kids that their parents are uninformed simpletons? Yes, the schools can (and already do) do this, it also means they can begin building on this, not only challenging the parents methods and beliefs, but also indoctrinating the children in the preferred beliefs, morality, philosophies, and ideas of the state.

Parents, it’s getting very dangerous in those public schools.Transgender

Parents OUTRAGED After 8th-Graders Get This Shockingly Racist, Violent Math Quiz


waving flagBy: John Falkenberg on June 2, 2016

URL of the original posting site: http://conservativetribune.com/parents-outraged-8th-graders/

An Alabama middle school teacher has been suspended for forcing her students to take a wildly racist 10-question quiz. The assessment referred to drive-by shootings, drugs, prostitutes and pimps — to eighth-graders at Burns Middle School in Mobile, according to WPMI in Mobile.

Fortunately, one of her students had the presence of mind to report the incident to his mother, the station reported.

This is the quiz Joanne Bolser distributed to her eighth-graders:

The LA Math Proficiency Test has been circulating - and getting teachers into trouble - since the early 1990s

What did you say 04.jpgThey make a list of basic math questions known as the LA Math Proficiency Test.”

One of which goes as follows.

“Tyrone knocked up four girls in a gang. There are 20 girls in the gang. What is the exact percentage of girls Tyrone knocked up?”

Another one: “Desmond gets $200 for a BMW, $150 for a Corvette, $100 for a 4×4. If he steals one BMW, 2 Corvettes, and 3 4x4s, how many more Corvettes does he need to get to $900?”

Which doesn’t even make sense — the answer would be 2/3 of a Corvette.

The teacher was set to retire this year. If she’s lucky, she will see her retirement, instead of the severe repercussions she deserves.

According to WALA, the students were happy to laugh it off until Bolser told them that they had to finish it and turn it in.

The district was appalled.

“We regret this happened. We have 7,500 employees at Mobile Public Schools and we overwhelmingly have excellent teachers,” said the spokesman. “This is a shame that it’s taking away from their work.”

Middle schools are fertile ground for controversies, whether from the left or from the right, but this is one area where just about everyone should agree the questions were inappropriate. Bolser isn’t the first to give this test. Teachers in California, Texas, New Mexico, and Illinois have all handed out versions of the test, and they were all suspended.

Obama’s Transgender Bathroom Decree Appears To Violate Multiple Federal Laws


waving flagAuthored by Herbert W. Titus and William J. Olson May 14, 2016

The Obama Administration has done it again.  In an effort to strip school children of their modesty and morals, Obama has issued new instructions governing use of rest rooms, locker rooms, and showers in every government-funded school in the country.  And, in predictably lawless fashion, Obama has violated not one, but two federal laws.  First, he took a 1972 law, Title IX, which was designed to prevent sex discrimination in education, and says that as of today, the word “sex” in the statute does not mean the “sex” you were born with.  It means whatever “gender” you feel like on a given day.  And, if that was not bad enough, the manner in which the Obama Administration acted was to legislate by letter, not just usurping legislative power, but Obama violating another federal law — the Administrative Procedures Act.Picture2

Purporting to act according to what are known as official “good guidance” practices, the Civil Rights Division of the U.S. Department of Justice and the Office of Civil Rights of the U.S. Department of Education issued a transgender “good guidance” letter, dated May 13, 2016.  Such a “good guidance” letter can only be issued if it does not add requirements to applicable law, but provides information and examples to inform recipients about how the Departments evaluate whether covered agencies are complying with their legal obligations.

However, like a newly enacted statute or promulgation of a new regulation, the May 13 good guidance letter includes list of new terms, never previously adopted by Congress or the Administration.  Not only that, but the letter contains rules governing the interpretation of those new legal terms.  For example, the letter defines “gender identity” to be “an individual’s internal sense of gender,” but then forbids the use of any objective standard – such as “medical diagnosis or treatment” — to verify any individual claim.   One’s gender identity is, thus, established solely by a person’s subjective claim.  And that claim can change from day to day.  Keys taken

Additionally, the good guidance letter indicates that the rules governing “sex segregated activities and facilities” are not the same.  As for restroom and locker use, “transgender students “must have access to such facilities consistent with their gender identity,” but with respect to “athletics,” gender identity is not the sole determinant of access.  That is, for athletics, a boy who feels he should be a ‘transgender girl” could be excluded from the girl’s basketball team, but not put out of the girl’s locker room.   What did you say 05.jpg

None of these examples merely “provides information and examples” of existing regulations — which is all that guidance letters may do lawfully.  This letter presents brand new interpretations of the word “sex” and new applications of new terms.  And, they are binding.  The guidance letter reads:  “The Departments treat a student’s gender identity as the student’s sex for the purposes of Title IX and its implementing regulations.  This means that a school must not treat a transgender student differently from the way it treats other students of the same gender identity.”More Liberal Gibberish

According to the federal government’s own rules for Agency Good Guidance Practices, guidance letters may not be used to establish “new policy positions that the agency treats as binding. Rather, the government agency must apply with the APA’s notice-and-comment requirements.”  OMB Final Bulletin for Agency Good Guidance Practices at 3.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit has observed that such guidance letters can be abusive, for under them:  “Law is made, without notice and comment, without public participation, and without publication in the Federal Register or the Code of Federal Regulations.” Appalachian Power Co. v. EPA, 208 F.3d 1015 (D.C. Cir. 2000).  That is not law — it is “fiat.”  Picture3

Moreover, the DOJ and DOE guidance letter misleads.  Masquerading as a “Dear Colleague” letter, the two departments act as if they are just co-workers with the nation’s college presidents and university provosts, school superintendants and principals — laboring together “to make educational programs and activities safe, and inclusive for all students.”  In fact, however, this “dear colleague” letter represents a threat, not an invitation.  If it were collegial, it would have been penned and signed only by the Assistant Secretary for Civil Rights in the Department of Education, the federal co-worker.  Instead, the letter is also signed by the Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney for Civil Rights in the Department of Justice — the federal enforcer.Leftist Giant called Tyranny

Both signers pretend that the newly hatched transgender student policy is not worthy of public debate and decision by the people’s elected representatives in Congress.  Rather, it is a done deal. It is time for the people to call on their elected state officials and representatives to fight for their rights not to be governed by two leftist unelected bureaucrats.  Now, the only question is whether the supposedly sovereign states will cave to federal threats, and whether the federal courts will look the other way, as they have done all too frequently in the past.pure socialism

Just Tuesday, we filed an amicus brief in the Fourth Circuit case of G.G. v. County of Gloucester.  This brief was filed for Public Advocate of the United States, the United States Justice Foundation, and Conservative Legal Defense and Education Fund.  Our brief was in support of an effort to have the Fourth Circuit reconsider its decision upholding the Obama Administration’s order that the boys’ restrooms in Gloucester County, Virginia schools be opened to girls, and, by the logic of the decision, would open the girls’ restrooms to boys.  One would have thought that the Obama gang would have awaited a decision from the Fourth Circuit, but it was not to be.  The Obama Administration sees that with each turn of the calendar there are fewer and fewer days to remake America, as President Obama promised in his inaugural address.  So much damage to be done, and so little time to do it.More

Christian Students FORCED To Pray To Allah! Coming To a School Near You


waving flagCommentary By Adina Kutnicki  — July 6, 2015

URL of the original posting site: http://joeforamerica.com/2015/07/christian-western-students-forced-pray-allah-coming-u-s-school-near

 

Have your kids begun being introduced to praying to Allah? PATRIOTS, hang onto your last meal, you may just feel the need to vomit after you read the following contents.

THIS is precisely what I have been warning about at various venues, including at Joe For America. HOLD on tight…and even tighter to your kiddies!01

LIKE night follows day, how many times, how many ways, has this site warned about the creeping encroachment of Islam via Shariah Law’s mandates within America, as well as the west in toto? Enumerable. But before we get to the complete encirclement of the kiddies, certain rehashes are necessary. Building blocks.

NOW, it is not as if “The Plan” is news to dedicated readers, however, countless are in the dark about its existence. Its basis. It is this document which spells out how Americans have become increasingly de-sensitized to Islamic indoctrination, and the stealth methods used to effectuate its underpinnings.

Adina Kutnicki: Indeed, let’s, as a first stop, hop aboard our Inquisitor journey with “The Plan”. At its core, “The Plan” is a detailed blueprint, one which the leadership of the Muslim Brotherhood adheres to – and augments as necessary – to infiltrate and penetrate the west, but most intrinsically they are targeting America, the “Great Satan”. It is the main linchpin to the west’s fall. “The Plan’s” basic goals are described thusly:

Phase 1: Establishment of an elite Muslim leadership, while raising taqwa, or Islamic consciousness, in the Muslim community.

Phase 2: Creation of Islamic institutions the leadership can control, along with the formation of autonomous Muslim enclaves.

Phase 3: Infiltration and Islamization of America’s political, social, economic and educational systems, forming a shadow state within the state. Escalation of religious conversions to Islam.Muslims in the White House Administration

Editor’s Note: One of the hot spots of conversion to Islam is America’s extensive system of prisons.

Phase 4: Openly hostile public confrontation over US policies, including rioting, and militant demands for special rights and accommodations for Muslims.

Phase 5: Final conflict and overthrow (jihad).

While each phase has many subsections and takes years to implement, the fact of the matter is that their goals have been ongoing for decades. They are rapidly, stealth-fully bearing fruit.

Editors note: The following statement revealing the Muslim Brotherhood’s plan for America was found in an internal Brotherhood document and presented into evidence during the Holy Land Foundation terror financing trials in 2007 and 2008.

“The Ikhwan [Muslim Brotherhood] must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and “sabotaging” its miserable house by their hands and by the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.”

INDEED, additional stops on your journey can be found here….and some are housed inside the video. Highly recommended viewing.

YES, the above Obama-vomit is part and parcel of the Brotherhood Mafia’s plan, and it cements (some of) the pieces together – Islam’s forward march! STEP by step along this nauseous path – sorry for that – the lessons learned at these pages are ongoing and wholly supportable via a highly developed knowledge base, in tandem with access to a network of “experts among experts.” Remember that.

IN this regard, once again, heed the following warning: America’s kiddies are in grave danger! As repeatedly assessed:

SEVERAL warnings were blared but the following sets the stage: Obama Inc. funnels taxpayer revenues to Islamize kiddies. This is transpiring inside America and beyond its borders!

INDEED, housed under the guise of Common Core are lesson plans which ‘innocuously’ slide in the ‘exemplary’ and “benign” aspects of Islam. These plans are usually found within the social studies and English curriculum’s, but not exclusively so. One example (out of countless) is more than instructive, relative to the underlying goal of indoctrination.

muslimworksheet.jpg

Parents in Farmville, North Carolina want to know why their children were given a Common Core vocabulary assignment in an English class that promoted the Prophet Muhammad and the Islamic faith …continue reading here

AS predicted – and in the same manner in which Europe is always the forerunner to western civilization’s (incremental) demise – Eurabia’s leaders are whole hog into Islam as the continent’s de facto religion, despite any jibber jabber to the contrary. Consequentially, its Christian public school children are being FORCED to submit to (pagan) Allah! Cause and effect.

SCOTLAND: Glasgow public (state) school forces Christian students to recite Islamic prayers and perform Wudu (ritual washing) at a mosque

Why is there no follow-up about parental outrage and threats of legal action against the school that arranged this? Muslim students are NEVER forced to go on similar field trips to churches or synagogues.

v01

HEAD spinning. Heart stopping. Western civilization’s death throes!

muslim-obamaEVEN so, we are not done yet. As always, Shariah Law’s encroachment (whatever the western locale) is both subtle – stealth jihad-like – and unrelenting. Hence, “accommodations” to “refugees” is the next step/stop, but no one should be foolish enough to believe that it wasn’t planned in advance. Again, coming to a U.S. school near you. Count on it.

A school in Bavaria has sent a letter home to parents warning them not to let their daughters wear revealing blouses or short skirts, because emergency accommodation for refugees has been set up next to the gym.

A week ago emergency accommodation for 200 Syrian refugees was erected right next to the gym of Wilhelm-Diess-Gymnasium in Pocking, Bavaria, Die Welt reports. The gym has been closed as a result, and PE lessons have been relocated to a nearby primary school, but the school is still worried about the refugees interacting with students.

So worried in fact that the headteacher recently sent out a letter to parents to give reassurance about extra security measures. “For the refugees, access to the school gardens and buildings is strictly forbidden. The same goes for the school grounds during the day. The number of teachers on duty during breaks has been increased,” read the letter from head teacher Martin Thalhammer. The letter goes on to give students instructions on how to deal with the situation:

“The Syrian citizens are mainly Muslims and speak Arabic. The refugees are marked by their own culture. Because our school is directly next to where they are staying, modest clothing should be adhered to, in order to avoid discrepancies. Revealing tops or blouses, short shorts or miniskirts could lead to misunderstandings.”America are you paying attention

The letter has not been met favourably by some parents, but a local politician, who did not want to be named, told Die Welt the move was “absolutely necessary”. “When Muslim teenage boys go to open air swimming pools, they are overwhelmed when they see girls in bikinis,” he said. “These boys, who come from a culture where for women it is frowned upon to show naked skin, follow girls and bother them without realizing. Obviously this is concerning for us,” he continued.Picture5

The move by the school has caused a lot of discussion, and Thalhammer has received queries from all over the media, reports the Passauer Neue Presse. “There have never been uniform rules at this school and there never will be.” He said. “It is my duty to look after the children. Therefore I wanted to inform everyone about what is going on at school and what the gym is being used for.” “It was my responsibility to remind everyone that two cultures are coming together here,” he continued.Islam is NOT

UNDERSTOOD? And despite the headmaster’s nonsensical rhetoric, “there have never been uniform rules at this school and there never will be”, the fact remains that he did order the female students to dress modestly, so that Syrian Muslim male “refugees” wouldn’t get all riled up: “revealing tops or blouses, short shorts or miniskirts could lead to misunderstandings.”insane

MOST significantly, instead of the so-called “refugees” being forced to integrate into their host country, the converse is true. Yes, the native population MUST now accommodate them! Is this rational within any non-submitted society? Of course not.Why

IF all of the above appears too fantastical, alas, preferring to believe that FORCING Islamic prayer upon America’s kiddies could never happen – despite many proofs housed in this site – so be it. But you would do well to take off your (mental) blinders before it is too late. Post haste. Forthwith. Forewarned.

IN this regard, just revert back to pre HUSSEIN Obama’s coronation, and search your heart of hearts for what you never thought could happen within the heretofore land of the free, the home of the brave. Resultant, did you ever conceive that gay “marriage” would become the law of the land, in a country built upon Christian and Jewish foundations? Did you believe that citizens would essentially be FORCED to buy any product, let alone health insurance via Obamacare…aka Hitlercare? Did you ever have a nightmare that a global trade agreement – one which DE FACTO gives up America’s sovereignty to foreign (corp) players – would become America’s reality ala the EU? Believe it!

v02 v03 v04

BOTTOM LINE: are you still a disbeliever? On the other hand, have you woken up from dreamland and properly assessed America’s nightmare? Either way, U.S. kiddies are primed to bow to Allah, and this site has already proven it “six ways to Sunday”….er, should it now be known as “six ways to Friday” in “deference” to Islam?

WESTERN lights (almost) out!

Islamic Indoctrination In Schools HEATING UP: Kids Reciting “Shahada”!


MId Term drawing

Commentary By Adina Kutnicki — October 30, 2014

ANYONE who understands the inner workings of Islamic submission via jihad, also realizes that capturing and co-opting the kiddies is their number one priority. Ditto for leftists and cultural Marxists.

THAT being said, it follows that America’s public schools are in their cross hairs!  Keep reading, but be prepared to take action, otherwise this jihadi train will take over your children’s hearts, minds and religious practices – like it or not!

islam
Wichita, Kansas public school hall display!

IT has never been the case that this site has “cried wolf”, relative to Islam or the Marxist left. If anything, readers should know that this investigative journalist has evinced remarkable “restraint”, considering the explosive info which comes this way, some of which is “too hot” to reveal. Believe it.

BUT one needn’t immerse themselves in the jihadi muck to know this: it is against the law to teach/indoctrinate religion within the public school system, and the Establishment Clause, housed within the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, is immutable. Yes, the oft-mentioned “separation of Church and State”. How dare the PC thought police – in the (mis)education department – allow this blatant violation, one which is counter to American law and ethos!

MORE specifically, the teaching of the “Shahada” should be viewed as the last straw…the “red line”, or more aptly termed, the “green line”…at least for ANY parent who is not looking for their kiddie to submit/succumb/prostrate to Allah! Ya think?

The Shahada “the testimony”; also “the two testimonials” is an Islamic creed declaring belief in the oneness of God and the acceptance of Muhammad as God’s prophet. The declaration, in its shortest form, reads:

lā ʾilāha ʾillā-llāh, muhammadun rasūlu-llāh

There is no god but God, Muhammad is the messenger of God

MIND you, if this INDOCTRINATION is not enough to get parents to rise up and scream, “no more, stop messing with our kiddies”, nothing else will!New WhatDidYouSay LogoPicture4

In Revere, Massachusetts the public school district there is not only requiring students to learn about Islam but is teaching these children the Shahada or the Islamic conversion prayer. As you can see in the news reports below, one dad is rightly upset but there are also some liberals who have no problem with it (after all, it is Boston). What many of these parents do not understand is that in Islam, the simple recitation of this prayer means a conversion to Islam.

Imperial Islamic President ObamaSome of the parents may scoff at such a notion but make no mistake; there are Muslims who certainly do not. In the same way that the Ground Zero mosque was intended to be about conquest, so too is forcing non-Muslim children to recite the Shahada. The local news reports do not pick up on this very significant element of the story.

As Shoebat.com reported recently, the Boston Police Department just announced the promotion of its first Muslim to Captain. While that may seem a separate issue, consider what new Captain Haseeb Hosein had to say about his plans:

As Boston police Captain Haseeb Hosein, a former science teacher and a firm believer in the power of reading, assumes leadership in Mattapan as the department’s first Muslim captain, he plans to have his officers walking not only the streets, but school hallways.

“I want my guys to go into the schools and spend 30 minutes and read” with a child, said Hosein, 52, who received his captain’s shield Wednesday in a ceremony at police headquarters. “I hate that police officers are always the bad guy. We should be an asset.”

As a Muslim, Hosein knows the Shahada and he knows that reciting it means conversion. We know that he wants his officers to “read” with children. Revere, which is less than 15 miles from Mattapan, is already teaching children Islam’s conversion prayer.

Can we not conclude that Hosein would have no problem with his officers helping children recite the Shahada?

Millions of students in public schools don’t understand fractions or pronouns at even a basic level but students in the oceanfront Boston suburb of Revere, Mass. are taking the time to learn all about Islam — in the most embarrassingly shallow and cheerleading way imaginable.

Part of the textbook prints the Muslim Call to Prayer,according to Boston NBC affiliate WHDH. “I bear B.S. Meterwitness that there is no God but Allah,” it says. The textbook portion also reverently celebrates Muhammad’s life. “Muhammad never expected to change the world,” the admiring, rah-rah textbook reads. “Muhammad later tended sheep on the dry hills like many young Arabians,” the text explains. “Later he became a successful merchant and married a wealthy widow. However, he felt as though something was missing in his life, so he went on a retreat.” The founder of Islam was “upset about the cruelty of his people,” the text also optimistically explains. They “killed baby girls.” They “treated their slaves unkindly.” And “Muhammad had a strong sense of right and wrong.”

One local parent, Anthony Giannino, is upset about the textbook’s treatment of the Muslim religion. IT gets worse…and this is just a sampling of the indoctrination through a so-called “cultural” textbook:

textbook-vi

THAT being said, children, the next generation, are the MAIN targets of Islamic leaders and their collaborators on the left. This is a fact. Not only that, but when jihad comes into full bloom on the streets of America – sooner than most realize – it is also a fact that they will head for America’s jugular: it’s kiddies!

David Gaubatz: As we all know children are the future of the world. Sadly most Muslim children are being taught hate and violence from an early age. Most people think Muslim children are only being taught this ideology in Palestine and throughout the Middle East. The vast majority of mosques in America teach hate and violence. There are several references in the Quran that inform Muslims to never take Christians and Jews as protectors and friends. The Sunni manual Tafsir Ibn Kathir is an excellent reference to what children are being taught in Islamic schools.

When I was in Iraq I had the opportunity to interview several captured Al Qaeda members. I asked them what type of future attacks America would endure. The answer over and over was that the hearts of Americans would be attacked. They explained that this meant the American children would be attacked because they are the hearts of the American people. These terrorists said the attacks would not necessarily be physical attacks, but rather a slow indoctrination in U.S. public schools and universities. The indoctrinating would include the Islamic ideology is peaceful and even as non-Muslims they support Islam and the Muslim people…..

PATRIOTS, parents and concerned citizens, do you believe the above penetration came out of nowhere and just magically appeared? Hope not.

SO what else have Islamic “stealth” jihadists accomplished relative to America’s school children? Much more than you think.

Accomplishment One:

IF anyone believes that the likes of Obama Inc. is NOT totally involved in said infiltration and penetration – through their Brotherhood links within the administration and outside its confines too – well, go back to sleep. It is just easier for some to close their eyes and muffle their ears. Yet for the rest….

Before we get to the recent “news” re Dearbornistan, let’s review a backgrounder on AG Holder’s Islamic putsch via the kiddies; a tag-team approach with Barack HUSSEIN Obama.

Muslims in the White House Administration

Burqas32
Kiddie Penetration: Islamic (kiddie) penetration takes many forms – burqas and the like.

There’s a new controversy in Texas involving the online public school curriculum called CSCOPE, which already has been the subject of heated debate and state legislative hearings.

This is the dreadful situation facing America’s kiddies, even as one of the most well-known private schools, Exeter Academy, trucks with terrorists, Obama’s surrogates are hide nor hare in interfering. Why? As if.

Full Disclosure: a few close acquaintances/business associates graduated from the halls of Philips Exeter Academy (the subject below) back in the early 1980’s, and just a few years before its Islamic infestation. These individuals are at the top of their chosen professions, therefore, the influence many of its graduates yield is considerable, even if not in the Presidential arena.

‘Academy That Produced Three Presidents Now Terrorist Breeding Ground’

Accomplishment Two:

MY word, even the IRS has jumped onto the bandwagon, in the rush to Islamize children, and this time in Europe! American taxpayers are funding overseas indoctrination! Did you know this?

Now isn’t this amazing on the close of tax season. It seems that the US taxpayers have a surprise. Some of the tax money from the US is not going to pay the National Debt. It’s not going to pay for the money taken from Veteran Pensions to pay for illegal immigrants in the United States. In fact, the money you pay to the IRS may not even be going to welfare. Instead your tax dollars are going to pay for the Islamification of Europe!

According to an investigation by WND and the Gatestone Institute many of the United States taxpayers are paying for a program overseas to teach children about Islam and attempts to convert the impressionable into becoming Muslim.

According to their research, the program directly targets the Czech Republic and is paid for by a grant from the US Embassy in Prague. The program called “Muslims in the Eyes of Czech Schoolchildren,” admits fully to being funded by US Taxpayers through the US Embassy. The grant is a branch of the Anna Lindh Foundation, the European Commission Representation and the Prague library. The program is fully supported by the Czech Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports according to the coordinator and lecturer Klara Popovova.

IF the readers take away anything from this commentary’s thesis, suffice to say this: a double-prong plan is in place, one which is supported by Islamic leaders in America (aided and abetted by Brotherhood front-arms, throughout the Mid East & Africa) and their Marxist counterparts.

INTRINSICALLY, they are aiming, arming, for “soft” stealth jihad and frontal attacks. In effect, they are marching through America’s (and Europe’s, but let’s not digress) public (and some private ones too) schools, inch by inch leading the kiddies toward Islam’s “ways”. Basically, capturing their young and impressionable hearts and minds.

ON the other side of the Islamic thrust, the frontal one, there is no doubt that jihadists are lying-in-wait and will aim for “soft” targets first; schools and gathering places for children, when the signal to pounce is given.

BE prepared for them….

Public Schools Are Preparing America’s Children For Life In A Police State


FreedomOutpost_Mastheadhttp://freedomoutpost.com/2014/02/public-schools-preparing-americas-children-life-police-state/#UAuPiMq3YmLiizjd.99

Our children are the future of America, and our public schools are systematically training them to become accustomed to living in a “Big Brother” police state.  All across the United States today, public schools have essentially become “prison grids” that are run by control freaks that are absolutely obsessed with micromanaging the lives of their students down to the smallest detail.  As you will read about below, students all over the country are now being monitored by RFID microchips, their lunches are being inspected on a daily basis by school administrators, and the social media accounts of students are being constantly monitored even when they are at home.  Of course these sorts of things do not happen everywhere just yet, but on the path that we are on it is just a matter of time.  At this point, many of our public schools very closely resemble “totalitarian dictatorships”, and so if the United States ever slips into totalitarianism the students of today will actually feel very comfortable under that political system.

I went to public schools all my life, so I have experience in this area.  Sadly, things have gone downhill quite a bit since those days.  For example, one thing that was unheard of back when I was in high school was “active shooter drills”.  They are being held in school districts all over the nation today, and they often involve the firing of blanks and the use of fake blood.  The following is from a recent NBC News about these drills…

In a cramped, carpeted amphitheater in the basement of Troy Buchanan High School, 69 students are waiting to die.

“You’ll know when it pops off,” says Robert Bowen, the school’s campus police officer. “If you get engaged with one of the shooters, you’ll know it.”

“When you get shot, you need to close your fingers and keep ‘em in,” adds Tammy Kozinski, the drama teacher. “When the bad guy and the police come through, they’ll step all over you, and who will be saying they’re sorry?”

“Nobody!” the students cry in unison.

This isn’t a bizarre, premeditated mass murder or some twisted sacrifice led by a student cult. These are the 20 minutes preceding an active shooter drill, the 13th one Missouri’s Lincoln County school district has staged in the past year.

You can read the rest of that article right here, and a YouTube video about these drills is posted below…

Active ShooterFortunately, the students participating in the active shooter drills in Missouri know in advance what is happening.

In other instances around the country, that is not the case.  In fact, sometimes teachers are not even told what is going to happen.  Just check out the following example from New Jersey

About 50 teachers at a New Jersey school experienced a terrifying moment when a shooting rampage turned out to be a drill, but the teachers didn’t know it.

It happened Aug. 28 at the Phillipsburg New Jersey Early Learning Center.

A man burst into the library and started shooting. But the gun didn’t have any bullets, just blanks.

Teachers took cover under child-sized tables, crying and trembling.

“People are crying. The girl next to me is trembling and shaking. You heard people crying. You heard other people praying. It was pretty dramatic,” one teacher said.

Could you imagine your own children being put through something so traumatic?

And of course “active shooter drills” are far from the only way that our public schools are being transformed into prison camps.  Just consider the following list…

-Public schools in some parts of the country are beginning to use RFID microchips to track school attendance. (Link)

-Some public schools are now systematically monitoring the social media accounts of their students. (Link)

-Listening devices are being installed in classrooms all over the nation. (Link)

-Bureaucratic control freaks are checking student lunches at many schools to ensure that they are “balanced”. (Link)

-Students are being suspended from school for simply making gun gestures with their hands. (Link)

-Some public schools do not even allow parents to walk their own children to class. (Link)

This next set of examples comes from one of my previous articles

A few years ago, a class of 3rd grade students at one Kentucky elementary school were searched by a group of teachers after 5 dollars went missing.  During the search the students were actually required to remove their shoes and their socks.

At one public school in the Chicago area, children have been banned from bringing their lunches from home.  Yes, you read that correctly.  Students at that particular school are absolutely prohibited from bringing lunches from home.  Instead, it is mandatory that they eat the food that the school cafeteria serves.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture is spending huge amounts of money to install surveillance cameras in the cafeterias of public schools so that government control freaks can closely monitor what our children are eating.

It is not just high school kids that are being ticketed by police.  In Texas the crackdown extends all the way down to elementary school students.  In fact, it has been reported that Texas police gave “1,000 tickets” to elementary school kids over a recent six year period.

A 17 year-old honor student in North Carolina named Ashley Smithwick accidentally took her father’s lunch with her to school.  It contained a small paring knife which he would use to slice up apples.  So what happened to this standout student when the school discovered this?  The school suspended her for the rest of the year and the police charged her with a misdemeanor.

A 6 year old girl in Florida was handcuffed and sent to a mental facility after throwing temper tantrums at her elementary school.

In early 2010, a 12 year old girl in New York was arrested by police and marched out of her school in handcuffs just because she doodled on her desk. “I love my friends Abby and Faith” was what she reportedly wrote on her desk.

There are actually some public schools in the United States that are so paranoid that they have actually installed cameras in student bathrooms.

-Down in Florida, students have actually been arrested by police for bringing a plastic butter knife to school, for throwing an eraser, and for drawing a picture of a gun.

-The Florida State Department of Juvenile Justice has announced that it will begin using analysis software to predict crime by young delinquents and will place “potential offenders” in specific prevention and education programs.

-A group of high school students made national headlines a while back when they revealed that they were ordered by a security guard to stop singing the national anthem during a visit to the Lincoln Memorial.

In some U.S. schools, armed cops accompanied by police dogs actually conduct surprise raids with their guns drawn.  In this video, you can actually see police officers aiming their guns at school children as the students are lined up facing the wall.

Back in 2009, one 8 year old boy in Massachusetts was sent home from school and was forced to undergo a psychological evaluation because he drew a picture of Jesus on the cross.

Are you starting to get the picture?

Our public schools are systematically training our children for life in a police state, and hardly anyone is complaining about it.

We are heading down a very dangerous road, and at the end of that road we would end up like other totalitarian regimes such as North Korea.

If you think that you would like to live in a truly totalitarian regime, just consider what a new UN report that was just released says is going on in North Korea right now…

The commission documents crimes against humanity, including “extermination, murder, enslavement, torture, imprisonment, rape, forced abortions and other sexual violence, persecution on political, religious, racial and gender grounds, the forcible transfer of populations, the enforced disappearance of persons and the inhumane act of knowingly causing prolonged starvation.”

So why don’t the people of North Korea rebel?

Well, one prison camp survivor that escaped said that “we became so used to it that we didn’t feel anything”

One witness, a survivor of a North Korean prison camp, told the commission of seeing a guard beat a nearly starving woman who had recently given birth, then force the woman to drown her baby.

Others told of being imprisoned for watching soap operas, trying to find food for their families, traveling without permission or having family members considered suspect by the government.

“Because we saw so many people die, we became so used to it,” one prison camp survivor told the commission. “I’m sorry to say that we became so used to it that we didn’t feel anything.”

Perhaps you think that such a thing could never happen in America, but the truth is that we are also becoming very accustomed to the emerging Big Brother control grid which is being constructed all around us.

And the youth of today are sadly ignorant of what this nation is supposed to look like.  In fact, activist Mark Dice discovers that many students at one college in California cannot even name any of the Bill of Rights when they are asked to do so.

So is there any hope for the next generation of Americans?

Conservatism vs. Liberalism: Battle for the Hearts and Minds of Americans


http://patriotupdate.com/articles/conservatism-vs-liberalism-battle-hearts-minds-americans/#SReIJEKTShlCp4py.99

by 

There are two opposing worldviews vying for the hearts and minds of Americans.  One of these worldviews is conservatism.  Conservatives believe in such concepts as limited government, low taxation, free-market economics, individual liberty, personal responsibility, constitutional sovereignty, and traditional American values that grow out of our Judeo-Christian heritage.  The other worldview is liberalism, or in the language of its proponents, progressivism.  Liberals believe in nanny government, high taxes, statist/socialist economics, control through regulation, entitlement, one-world government, and class envy, racial strife, and secular humanist values (There is no definite right or wrong—individuals must decide what is right or wrong for themselves).

Liberals are heavily favored in this epic struggle for several reasons.  First, it is always easier to convince people to sit back and let the government take care of them than it is to convince them to take personal responsibility for the quality of their lives.   Another reason liberals are favored in this contest is that people are hardwired to envy others who appear better off economically—even when their better standard of living is the result of their entrepreneurial spirit and positive work ethic.  Yet another reason that liberals have the edge is that people are hardwired to blame others for their misfortunes as opposed to blaming themselves. These are just a few of the reasons the playing field tilts in favor of liberals, there are many more.  However, for the sake of brevity I will skip directly to the bottom-line reason:  liberals control the institutions that mold the values and worldviews of America’s children.

America’s public schools have become incubators for producing successive generations of liberals.  Nothing about public education supports the development of a conservative worldview.  Here is what that stalwart in the faith, J. Gresham Machen, had to say about this dilemma: “Place the lives of children in their formative years, despite the convictions of their parents, under the intimate control of experts appointed by the state, force them to attend schools where the higher aspirations of humanity are crushed out…and it is difficult to see how even the remnants of liberty can subsist.”

Public school students spend more than 30 hours per week for 12 years being indoctrinated by so-called “experts appointed by the state” against everything conservative parents stand for (i.e. limited government, low taxation, free-market economics, individual liberty, personal responsibility, constitutional sovereignty, and traditional American values).  Frankly, if this situation is allowed to persist not only will conservatives lose the battle for the hearts and minds of Americans, they will deserve to lose.

As conservatives, we seem to think the battle is about electing the next President of the United States.  But battles for the hearts and minds of the people are fought in the trenches at the local level, not in the White House or the halls of Congress.  They are fought around the dinner table of individual American families.  They are fought in how parents raise their children and what they teach them about right and wrong and responsible principles of living.  But conservative parents are losing the battle for the hearts and minds of their children because at least six hours a day, five days a week, nine months out of the year they turn them over to liberal teachers and administrators who persistently undo any good parents are able to do in the comparatively little time they spend with their children.

Here is an undeniable fact: You cannot expect your children to internalize and accept your worldview when you allow them to be raised by teachers who either reject your values or compliantly go along to get along in a system that rejects your values. Christian schools, home-schools, and charter schools help somewhat in this situation, but collectively these alternatives to the public schools are the equivalent of a flea on an elephant.  Most children of conservative parents in America attend public schools. This being the case, it is time for conservatives to start fighting at the grassroots level and do the hard work of transforming America’s public schools into institutions of learning rather than publicly-funded indoctrination centers that are better at producing compliant automatons with entitlement mentalities than critical-thinking, self-reliant, productive citizens.

One More Step Toward Sharia Law Being Part of Our Legal System in America


Hamas CAIR Muslims Attempts to Force Maryland Schools to Observe Islamic Holidays

Freedom Outpost: http://freedomoutpost.com/2013/09/hamas-cair-muslims-attempts-force-maryland-schools-observe-islamic-holidays/

 by Tim Brown

 Muslim advocates in Maryland continue to call for closures of public schools on Muslim holidays in the State of Maryland. Standing in front of the Montgomery County Council Office Building in Rockville, Northwest High School senior Anhar Karim, president of the Montgomery County Muslim Student Association, said he is one of many students in the county who have faced a hard decision related to two Muslim holidays.

Karin says he is conflicted over going to class or celebrating an Islamic holiday.

“We are forcing our students into an unreasonable decision,” said Karim.

An unreasonable decision? Seriously? Perhaps Karim needs to prepare himself for the real world where he may be required to work on Islamic holidays. Should he get some sort of special treatment? I think not.

According to the Gazette.net:

Karim and other speakers urged Montgomery County Public Schools to close when classes fall on Eid al-Adha and Eid al-Fitr during a Monday press conference held by the Maryland chapter of the Council of American Islamic Relations and the Equality for Eid Coalition.

Eid al-Adha celebrates sacrifice to the Islamic god and falls on Oct. 15 this year. Eid al-Fitr marks the end of the month of Ramadan and was Aug. 8. The dates of the holidays change because of the Islam lunar calendar.

The coalition, which is sponsored by the council, formed about a year ago to pursue a long-standing goal for the school closures.

The speakers also called for school system students and staff to skip school on Oct. 15 and celebrate Eid al-Adha instead.

Zainab Chaudry —vice president of the council’s Maryland chapter and a co-chair of the coalition —said the initiative is not asking for special lights.

“We’re only asking for equal rights,” she said.    

Equal rights? This isn’t about equal rights. It’s about religious equality. Those are two different things. What they are demanding is just like the homosexuals. Islamists are demanding special rights.

Look, as a Christian, I don’t care for either Christmas or Easter. I find neither of them in Scripture, but I don’t condemn my brothers and sisters for engaging in observing those holidays. However, I have worked on Christmas and haven’t been bothered in the least by it. If these Muslims have a problem with the school system not wanting to observe their particular holiday, perhaps they should either (a) homeschool, or (b) move to an Islamic country where they can have all the alleged Islamic rights they desire.

Mrs. Zainab Chaudry is also directly tied to the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), who have been identified as supporting terrorist organizations such as Hamas and engaged in money laundering in the US capitol of Washington, DC. If you want to let her know what you think of her affiliations with CAIR, here’s here email address: zchaudry@cair.com.

My question is why is Mrs. Chaudry and her husband not in indefinite military detention with their affiliation with a group that supports the enemies of America? I guess that little provision of the NDAA is really for American Patriots like Brandon Raub. Isn’t that right Senator Lindsey Graham?

Montgomery County Councilman George Leventhal (D-At large) of Takoma Park said that Mulsim students and their families face a problem their Christian and Jewish counterparts don’t when it comes to holiday observances.

If school was in session on Rosh Hashanah or Yom Kippur, it would be a conflict,” said Leventhal.

Like I said, holiday observances aren’t about rights. One has the right to engage in religious activity, but does not have the right to demand others to observe it by closing down schools and/or businesses. These kids can observe those holiday if they wish and simply provide a parents’ written note to attest to it.

However, I must ask, where are the people of Maryland? Where is your voice in this matter? You are being hammered by a tyrannical state government to disarm you, and you stand silently by while Islamists start making demands of your public schools? Where are you?

By the way, Leventhal is keeping his son home on October 15 to observe the holiday. Fine. That’s what you should do if that is what you believe is right. Stop forcing others to believe in the holidays forced on an ancient culture by a demon possessed pedophile murderer and thief! Just stop it!

I’m afraid the people of Maryland have allowed the devil in the back door and in the end there is going to be only one way to deal with him. I suggest the people of Maryland stand up and let their voices be heard in this matter.
