  • Indoctrinating the Young in Hate Factories

    Canada Free Press ^ | 12/03/16 | Ray DiLorenzo
    Our education system has created a multitude of young, inexperienced, poorly educated, indoctrinated minds, speaking as with authority…scary! If you want to learn to hate America, your nearest public school or college is waiting for you. If it is a university you want to attend, don’t worry about the cost, the government (taxpayers) will pick up the tab as student loans are about to be forgiven to the tune of $108 billion and will probably go much higher. Our schools across the country have created and nurtured millions of godless, America-hating, angry, statist, whiny, cry babies and we will all...
  • University of Alberta open to more international students following Trump, Brexit

    The Edmonton Journal ^ | December 3, 2016 | Juris Graney
    Once it became clear Donald Trump would become the next president of the United States, enquiries about studying at the University of Alberta began to come in. It wasn’t a deluge of interest, says Britta Baron, associate vice-president international, but it was enough that people noticed. And it wasn’t just prospective students putting the feelers out; Deans were also getting queries from academics and professors looking for job opportunities north of the 49th Parallel. The climate of uncertainty swirling through the United States may not be enough to force American students to reconsider their Ivy-league aspirations, but it will, Baron...

    The Portland State University Vanguard ^ | December 1, 2016 | Matthew Andrews
    Two weeks in and it’s already ancient news that 120 people, including several Portland State students, were arrested during a demonstration in downtown Portland on Nov. 12. The myriad of ongoing demonstrations have included blocked freeways, a shooting on the Morrison Bridge, disruption caused by violent factions—and subsequent fundraising efforts to repair property damage—and the ongoing drama of post-election rumors of fraud and recount petitions. It is easy to lose sight of those individually affected by current events. Daniel Vega, a senior at PSU studying music composition and completing his Bachelor of Music degree, was among those arrested on Nov....

    Homeschooled, conservative, pro-life -- he's the Left's worst nightmare Some people run before they learn to walk. I’m referring to Sam Oosterhoff, who was sworn in yesterday as an MPP (Member of the Provincial Parliament) in Ontario, Canada. The 19-year-old is the youngest MPP in Ontario’s history after winning in a special election earlier that month. The young conservative lawmaker is already under attack by the Left in his home country.

    Africa News ^ | December 1, 2016 | Abdur Rahman Alfa Shaban with AFP
    Nigerian Nobel-literature laureate Wole Soyinka has confirmed that he has relocated to his native Nigeria. The move is in line with his pledge to leave the United States if Donald Trump won the US elections. 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...

    The Tampa Bay Times' The Buzz ^ | December 1, 2016 | Alex Leary, Washington bureau chief
    The last time Jeb Bush held an education summit in Washington, as he does today, scores of reporters and a big crowd showed up. The headline: Bush seeks balance on Common Core under 2016 glare. Two years ago, speculation raged over whether Bush would run for president. Finally, in June 2015, he jumped in with a big splash of money. The rest is well-known. Today, Bush continued his re-emergence in a space he feels most comfortable in: policy wonk. He kicked off his Foundation For Excellence in Education summit with an 8:45 a.m. speech. "This is a time for big...
  • How not to fire a 12 Guage Pistol or Sawed off Shotgun

    Gun Watch ^ | 25 November, 2016 | Dean Weingarten
    This short video shows how not to fire a 12 gauge pistol/Sawed off shotgun. The link is below. The video shows the person firing with a less than firm grip on the firearm.  Shotguns shells can develop considerable recoil.  Without a firm grip, and only using one hand, the firearm flies out of the shooter's hand and smacks him in the face. It could have been worse. Occasionally a shooter with a weak grip will find that the firearm escapes his grasp while the trigger finger stays engaged. The firearm then may fire one or more shots as...

    Returning curricula development and institution to local autonomy, funding provided by the communities, not union-lobbied federal oversight, is a necessity There is a choice to be made in order to reverse the soaring amorality that has essentially crippled our young people, leaving them with only feelings by which to judge criminal and ethical behavior. By universally embracing anything and everything without critically judging it, all standards of conduct disappear and a generation degenerates. History (if ever anyone would bother to read it) demonstrates what occurs if no limits are placed on social actions and interaction, which is why it is...

    Is it just me? What does "searching for motives" mean? As if Islamist like this Abdul Razak didn't clarify himself well enough. An Ohio State University student posted a rant shortly before he plowed a car into a campus crowd and stabbed people with a butcher knife in an ambush that ended when a police officer shot him dead, a law enforcement official said. Abdul Razak Ali Artan, 18, wrote on what appears to be his Facebook page that he had reached a "boiling point," made a reference to "lone wolf attacks" and cited radical cleric Anwar al-Awlaki.Stop interfering with...

    President-elect Donald Trump’s nomination of Betsy DeVos for Secretary of Education did not sit well with American Federation of Teachers President Randi Weingarten. “In nominating DeVos, Trump makes it loud and clear that his education policy will focus on shifting control of education into the hands of students and their parents,” she complained. “This defies logic and can only lead to the destruction of the public education system.” Weingarten dismissed the consumer empowerment concept as “a naive perspective for the delivery of as complex a product as education. Does a parent really know what’s best for her child? Can we,...

    The Parent Herald ^ | November 21, 2016 | Olivia Etienne
    The victory of Republican presidential bet, Donald Trump, in the recent presidential elections comes with the soon fulfillment of his promise to resurrect the withered manufacturing sector. Prior to 1980s, the sector is bustling with eight-hour-a-day workers striving with a profitable yet laborious job while possessing only a high school diploma. But now, times have changed and so are the industry's demands. Unlike in the '80s, most manufacturing jobs now require a higher degree of education. While Donald Trump's aim to revive the industry is a shot to the moon, it can be achieved through apprenticeship programs, which will help...

Well over six feet tall, Mr. Gordon was skeleton skinny, his clothes hung on him like a suit on a scarecrow, he walked with a wobbly limp, and the meek expression on his thin, bony face, along with his subdued, kindly tone of voice, convinced us he was a wimp.

    Over the course of five years and covering thousands of miles, I toured America to meet some of the millions of legal gun owners who, every day, proudly exercise their constitutional right to keep and bear arms. Excited by how limitless freedom can be when every man and woman is afforded their right to arm and protect themselves, I sought to produce a collection of photographs and words as unbiased and true to the diverse social fabric of American gun owners today. I strove to create a book that mirrors the exceptional beauty, pride and singularity of the greatest...

    Protesting students at George Washington University (GWU) claim forcing them to accept police protection during their marches is “violence,” because many police officers supported President-elect Donald Trump. In a list of demands assembled by several progressive student groups, GWU protesters say school officials should find a way of guaranteeing their safety during marches that doesn’t involve police. “The Fraternal Order of Police, the largest police union in the United States, has formally endorsed President-Elect Donald Trump,” the list says. “The FOP includes over 10,000 members in Washington D.C., many of which have jurisdiction over GW’s campus.

    Major teachers unions endorsed Hillary Clinton, but some educators are excited to see what Trump will bring to the table.Josh Leasure remembers when the Ohio neighborhood where he grew up was booming. It was a populous, middle-class area with plenty of jobs to go around. Someone like Leasure ― who now teaches at a nearby public high school ― wouldn’t have necessarily been one of the more affluent community members, like he is now. The area’s fortune changed over the last two decades. The coal jobs that bolstered the community’s economy disappeared. Steel workers from local mills transferred to other...

    The past week has been extraordinary in the most literal sense. As I’ve sat on panels, talked to reporters, and huddled with folks trying to make sense of things, I’ve been struck by how differently things appear to me than to the vast majority of folks in and around education. What’s going on? A couple things, I suspect. But the biggest one is that, when I’m trying to explain the world of education to people who don’t work in or around education, I frequently wind up telling them, “You need to understand that the center in education is two standard...

    Conservative businesses you have enormous power to help change the culture by doing one simple thing: Forego requiring college degrees for any job that historically never required a degree. Use instead, SAT and ACT scores and internships to identify bright and eager workers. For those areas of work that do require technical training be bold! Hire people who have taken courses only in the technical areas needed or who have passed privately administered and certifiable qualifying exams. The longer our nation's youth remain in school the longer they are subjected to Marx-o-liberal indoctrination. Conservative businesses could easily help disrupt this...

     There is a new trend in American universities where “safe spaces” are provided for students who don’t want to be subjected to the rigors of the real world. That sounds odd to me since I thought that’s what colleges were anyway. When I was a college student I was always advised by my older-wiser mentors to stay in college as long as possible because the real world was just no fun. This was particularly bad advice for someone like me who was “studying” at Arizona State. The ASU campus was already like a giant safe space where the consequences...

    A promise made by Donald Trump during the campaign was to remove gun free school zones.  The federal gun free school zone law has been an abominable infringement on the Second Amendment. It has no justification as anything other than an infringement on the right of Americans to bear arms. It does not improve safety. It does not protect "sensitive places".  It serves no legitimate purpose. It has already been struck down once by the Supreme Court. The Gun Free School Zone act creates an illusory "zone" where most people are forbidden from bearing arms. The zone exists within...

Despite the barrage of negative, unflattering media, Trump voters resoundingly elected him the 45th President of the United States. Trump’s victory was a needed repudiation of the political establishment, which has failed millions of working-class Americans who are suffering economically and continuing to fall behind.

The Muslims especially prized European women as sex slaves.  They were organized and sanctioned by Muslim governments. If a non-Muslim government...

It says so right here,” the mother said her son told her. “They’ve just undone seven years of parenting in one hour,” the mother told reporters.Duval County...
