    These parents feel betrayed by the school district that they were not notified,” said Karen England of the Capitol Resource Institute, according to CBS Sacramento. “The kindergartners came home very confused, about whether or not you can pick your gender, whether or not they really were a boy or a girl,” England said at the board meeting Monday night. I want her to hear from me as a parent what her gender identity means to her and our family,” a meeting attendee said regarding her daughter. “It’s really about the parents being informed and involved and giving us the choice...

    How Google's Jigsaw is fighting the darkest parts of the internet BY KERRY FLYNN JUL 20, 2017 Fake news, terrorist propaganda, hateful comments — the internet is not the nicest place in the world. Jigsaw is trying to change that. Formerly under Google, Jigsaw now is a subsidiary within Alphabet. The company, under the direction of Alphabet chairman Eric Schmidt and Google Ideas founder Jared Cohen who serves as founder and CEO of Jigsaw, focuses on researching some of the darkest corners of the internet and implementing ways to address them. Yasmin Green, director of research and development at Jigsaw,...

    Prepare to be “nudged” by Obama's new “behavioral science” squads — for your own good, of course. Under the guise of better “serving” the American people through government, Obama signed an executive order this week calling for federal agencies and departments to deploy emerging “behavioral science” techniques against the public.Among other goals, the expansion of federal mind manipulation is supposed to help more Americans access government welfare programs, take their “recommended” vaccines, supply more information about themselves to the federal government, and accelerate the transition toward what Obama called “a low-carbon economy.” The controversial decree, signed on September 15, explicitly...
  • A Small Social Experiment on the Effectiveness of Media Brainwashing

    IWB ^ | Mark Angelides
    With recent denouncements of President Trump and the entirely unsurprising calls for impeachment (that were in fact being called for by the same people before he even took office), coupled with the fact that yesterday marked 18 years to the day that the Clinton impeachment began, I thought I might try a small social experiment to find out just how much work has been done by the Liberal media to brainwash today’s youth. This is an incredibly unscientific experiment, but every word is true. Not being an American, I do pride myself on having a fairly good grasp of American...

    Seattle Times ^ | May 24, 2017 | by Danny Westneat
    Last year’s election made Seattle’s Tod Steward a minor celebrity. If by celebrity you mean “the kind that everybody hates,” he laughs. Not here, though. In Canada. The 53-year-old First Hill resident has found a small niche in Canada as the most peculiar, and certainly most elusive, species of our time. He’s Seattle’s Only Trump Voter™. OK that’s not actually a trademarked phrase, nor is it numerically true. To be precise, 32,361 Seattleites besides Steward also cast votes for Donald Trump last November. But the percentage was so historically low — only 8 percent of the city’s 385,000 votes —...

    Brainwashing and forced ideological conformity are what colleges today are all about When parents send their kids off to college, they assume they will receive training that prepares them for a lifetime of employment. However, the truth is most of America’s colleges spend precious little time imparting practical skills to students. As tuitions and student loan debt grow at historic rates, an extraordinary amount of classroom time is spent indoctrinating students with leftist propaganda. It pays off for the Left which uses the existing taxpayer-supported system to churn out America-hating subversives. Parents send their kids to colleges and universities, and...

    The father of a sixth-grade student from Paulo Intermediate School in Staten Island was outraged to see his 11-year-old daughter's assignment turned political. The student's English teacher is under fire after slipping an anti-Trump question into the girl's homework. The homework sheet contained a fill-in-the-blank portion where students were asked to provide vocabulary terms from a box of words for sentences about Donald Trump and Barack Obama. The lines read: 'President Trump speaks in a very superior and _________ manner insulting many people. He needs to be more __________ so that the American people respect and admire him.' The correct...

    A University of Cambridge study devised psychological tools to target fact distortion. Researchers suggest "pre-emptively exposing" readers to a small "dose" of the misinformation can help organisations cancel out bogus claims. ... "Misinformation can be sticky, spreading and replicating like a virus," said the University of Cambridge study's lead author Dr Sander van der Linden. "The idea is to provide a cognitive repertoire that helps build up resistance to misinformation, so the next time people come across it they are less susceptible." The study, published in the journal Global Challenges, was conducted as a disguised experiment. More than 2,000 US...

    History textbooks read by schoolchildren in California — and perhaps across the country — could include a lesson about Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election if a bill to be introduced by a Marin County legislator becomes law. The bill from Assemblyman Marc Levine, D-San Rafael, will ask the state to adopt high school history curricula based on a recent national intelligence assessment: that Russia interfered in the election through the production of fake news and hacking, according to the lawmaker.

    Students at hundreds of colleges and universities are being systematically indoctrinated into the “New Civics” of social justice activism, according to a report released this past week by the National Association of Scholars. The report’s findings suggest that the suppression of free speech on college campuses that is making headlines is only the tip of a very large iceberg. What lies beneath the surface is a massive, publicly funded program of indoctrination through a remaking of the curriculum as a vehicle for advancing the political agenda of progressivism. The full NAS report, MAKING CITIZENS: HOW AMERICAN UNIVERSITIES TEACH CIVICS, can...

    Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA), ranking Democrat on the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee expressed doubts about the fitness of President-Elect Donald Trump's nominee for Secretary of Education, Betsy DeVos. "I appreciate that Ms. DeVos took the time to meet with me, I can't say that I would have done the same had our roles been reversed," Murray declared. "At our meeting she did nothing to allay my fears that she would continue to be an advocate for school choice. This pernicious ideology is founded on the absurd premise that individual parents ought to have the biggest say in...

    At a Brooklyn public library, drag queen Merrie Cherry read a few books to children and their parents. This is not the typical venue for Merrie Cherry's drag performance. "I haven't been around this many children in a long time. I've been around a lot of drunk people falling around, so it was very similar, you know, people trying to grab things from me," she joked. Cherry does regular shows at bars around New York City, usually with a much older crowd than the kids she read to here. But the common thread is promoting acceptance. Merrie Cherry performs at...

    The People's Repudiation Of Media Influence Thus, despite the media's best efforts to defeat Trump through a barrage of negative news stories, most Americans appeared not to be swayed by media coverage. Election Day provided the most definitive proof of both the media's bias against Trump and the people's repudiation of its attempts to influence the election narrative. Heading into the day of the vote, most news outlets were confident that Clinton would become the 45th president of the United States, as they pointed to poll after poll showing the former secretary of state comfortably leading Trump. This coverage seemed...

    (…) His students' reaction is NOT about losing an election. It's because these people watch media, and the (Clinton-controlled) media spent the last four months working overtime to program everyone in the country that Trump is a soulless monster come to eat them and their families, roasting their babies on a spit while laughing, and so on. This emotional programming has been extremely effective. That's why people are rioting now. Not because they aren't good losers, but because they've been successfully emotionally programmed by the Clinton Campaign's media arm (CNN, CNBC, and millions of scary social media posts), who are...

    A skit portraying the assassination of President-elect Donald Trump by two 10th-grade students at Marshall High School provoked anger and dismay from the parents of a student who watched it unfold last week. Harold and Melinda Bean said that in the skit, entitled “The Assassination of Donald Trump,” one of the boys made a gunfire sound effect with his cell phone as the other boy, portraying Trump, fell to the ground in mock death. “I don’t understand how the teacher can repeat an apology and be right there back at work on Monday morning,” he said. “Though we understand she...

    Just in time for the 2016 election, San Francisco PBS affiliate KQED is offering a Common Core-ready lesson plan designed for public school teachers who want to indoctrinate students with a love for open borders and a deep suspicion of anyone who favors the immigration restrictions proposed by Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. The lesson plan — which comes complete with “safe space” suggestions — is offered by way of a section of the taxpayer-funded television station’s website called “The Lowdown” (“connecting newsroom to classroom”). The lesson, released this week, centers around a graphic comic entitled “Fear of Foreigners: A...

    According to a recent article in The Bucknellian, students at Bucknell were upset over the lack of attendance at a recent campus event that covered issues of social justice. An event at Bucknell University entitled “Conscience, Courage, and Community: Bucknell Responds to Injustice Today” was largely underattended, which prompted students to call for future social justice-themed events to be made mandatory by university administrators. “These seats won’t fill up … Three years and they still aren’t filled,” said Anthony Scrima, voicing his frustrations about the lack of interest in the event.

    (Snip) The middle and upper classes have been the ones out there pushing for decriminalization and legalization measures, and they have also tried to demolish the cultural taboo against smoking pot. But they themselves have chosen not to partake very much. Which is not surprising. Middle-class men and women who have jobs and families know that this is not a habit they want to take up with any regularity because it will interfere with their ability to do their jobs and take care of their families. But the poor, who already have a hard time holding down jobs and taking...
