    CNN president Jeff Zucker admitted that “having the President of the United States impugn our integrity at every opportunity has battered the psyches of many of our network’s employees. We are the ones who determine the facts. We are the ones who impugn the integrity of those who don’t advance the progressive agenda. Trump’s rejection of our traditional role is a reversal that has hit us hard.” “Our morale since that black day in November has been in the dumpster,” Zucker observed. “But we are turning it around. Thanks to a suggestion emailed to us by a viewer, we have...
  • ‘Not My President’ children’s books and candy bars, Hollywood’s latest weapon

    Bizpac Review ^ | February 16, 2017 | Myra Adams
    Nothing conveys anti-Trump angst better than a “Not My President” candy bar in a VIP gift bag at the Academy Awards! . . . Let Hollywood keep funding children’s books portraying Trump as Hitler and promoting “Not My President” candy bars while the media mercilessly attacks Trump, and the Soros-funded protests continue. But remember, Americans are increasingly more hopeful under “our president” then they were under “your president.”

    Economist-mathematician Nassim Nicholas Taleb contends that there is a global riot against pseudo-experts After predicting the 2008 economic crisis, the Brexit vote, the U.S. presidential election and other events correctly, Nassim Nicholas Taleb, author of the Incerto series on global uncertainties, which includes The Black Swan: The Impact of the Highly Improbable, is seen as something of a maverick and an oracle. Equally, the economist-mathematician has been criticised for advocating a “dumbing down” of the economic system, and his reasoning for U.S. President Donald Trump and global populist movements. In an interview in Jaipur, Taleb explains why he thinks the...

    Things are bad. And they seem to be getting progressively worse. Right-wing speakers are being shouted down and cancelled on university campuses, men’s rights student groups are being denied funding, and anyone who expresses any view that runs contrary to the hard left’s dogmatism runs the risk of being reported to the Human Rights Commission, doxed, or worse- losing their job or professional license due to pressure from activists. Not only is the ‘free marketplace of ideas’ a bygone of the past, but the political right is being silenced and subsequently decimated. But where is all this coming from? The...

    Poletical.com ^ | February 1st, 2017 | R. Rados
    One of the most basic tenets of libertarianism is the construction of barriers, borders and boundaries. These boundaries are usually invisible, but they could just as easily be manifested into something physical. To protect individual liberty, libertarians believe in placing constitutional limits on the government's power and reach. Figuratively, libertarians believe in building barriers around individuals to protect them from physical coercion, violence and various other external elements. Some libertarians would argue that they're building barriers around the government – but the outcome and intent are still the same: individual freedom. In most cases, to protect one individual from another,...

    North of the River Tweed, on the border with England, lies the hauntingly beautiful land of Scotland. A land inhabited by a hardy breed of Celts whose history is rich with romantic stories of bravery and heroic struggles for freedom—a land so full of legends and myths, it’s sometimes difficult to separate true history from the romanticized version. During the 13th and 14th centuries, the Scots fought two bloody wars with their neighbor to the South, England, in Scotland’s struggle for independence. In recent years there has been a renewed interest about Scottish history, thanks in large measure to Mel...

    If there was anything that you would think would be immutable, it would be the past. Short of inventing a time machine, it should be impossible to change any event that has already occurred. However, this assumption is actually quite incorrect. While the events of objective history themselves cannot be changed, our understanding of them can. Indeed, revising history is easy when you control the levers of education and popular culture. Then, it’s just a matter of telling the history that you want to be told while ignoring the history that actually happened. A case in point would be the...

    One of the depressing things about trying to improve US education is that the great majority of the country seems to have given up. Mainly, you can credit the diabolical skills of our Education Establishment. They keep average citizens confused, divided, and overwhelmed by jargon and technical details. The people who should be our natural leaders -– doctors, lawyers, bankers, engineers, business executives-- probably are ashamed to admit they have no idea what anybody in education is talking about. Newspaper editors probably suffer from the same problem. So there is no deep coverage of education in this country, not at...

The infamous decision to rip apart his green card made the headlines before and after the November 8 polls that Trump won beating Hillary Clinton, his main contender. A green card simply is a document that identifies the bearer as an alien with permanent resident status in the United States. The 82-year-old told AFP on the sidelines of an education conference at the University of...

In a white male-dominated industry, it is not surprising the majority of American printers have joined the Trump camp. Male voters are a crucial pillar...

Sight-words are, of course, the problem that Rudolf Flesch wrote about in 1955 in his famous book "Why Johnny can't read." Our Education Establishment is relentless in pretending that phonics is no good and must be replaced by various "modern" methods. These methods had many names over the last 80+ years. But it...

    Amy Schumer mentions she's willing to move to Spain if Trump wins. It's interesting that these celebrities never mention Mexico when they threaten to leave! From NME: "My act will change because I'll need to learn to speak Spanish because I will move to Spain, or somewhere. It's beyond my comprehension if Trump won. It's too crazy," she said.

    President Clinton and his wife, Hillary, invited a group of popular self-help authors to Camp David to help them dissect what had happened in the first two years of the presidency and to search for a way back after the Democrats' devastating loss to the Republicans in the 1994 congressional elections.
