    RUSH: Okay. Are you ready for this story out of a college in Michigan, Eastern Michigan University? Eastern Michigan University has canceled all productions… (interruption) You’re nodding. (interruption) Have you heard of this in there? (interruption) Oh, you haven’t. Wait ’til you hear this. Eastern Michigan University is canceling all production and performance of the Vagina Monologues. Why do you think Eastern Michigan University in eastern Michigan is canceling all production and performances of the Vagina Monologues? If you’re thinking it’s morality based, you would be so dead wrong that it would be embarrassing. If you’re thinking it’s because old...

    Chicago Tribune ^ | October 26, 2018 | Juan Perez Jr
    Chicago Public Schools this fall recorded one of the sharpest single-year enrollment declines since the district’s student population began a steady downturn 16 years ago. The 361,314 students counted on the 20th day of classes this fall represents a reduction of 10,000 students from last school year. That’s a slightly smaller drop than two years ago, when enrollment plummeted by about 11,000 students from the preceding year. The numbers continue a long-standing trend that began in 2003, when total enrollment stood at 434,000. ... Years of falling enrollment, school expansion and choice patterns have left CPS with tens of thousands...
  • Democrats Want to Change a 181-Year-Old Rule to Allow Religious Headwear in the House

    11/19/2018 6:58:39 AM PST · by TigerClaws · 79 replies
    As they prepare to welcome two newly-elected Muslim women into the 116th Congress, Democrats have proposed a clarification to a 181-year-old rule banning representatives from wearing hats on the House floor. If approved, the new rules would allow lawmakers to wear religious headwear, like hijabs and kippahs, once Democrats take control of the chamber in January. Representative-elect Ilhan Omar, one of the first two Muslim women to serve in Congress, wears a headscarf. She was born in Somalia and came to the United States as a refugee.

    It’s an old joke: How can you tell a politician is lying? His lips are moving. It seems that may be the case for the first two Muslim women elected to the U.S. Congress. An analyst at the Gatestone Institute presented evidence that Ilhan Abdullahi Omar of Minnesota and Rashida Harbi Tlaib of Michigan lied to voters. The charge comes from Soeren Kern, a senior fellow at the institute, who who wrote that most of the media coverage since their election Nov. 6 “has been effusive in praise of their Muslim identity and personal history.” “Less known is that both...

    Marijuana Business Daily ^ | November 14, 2018
    Some Michigan communities are already prohibiting adult-use marijuana businesses, a little more than a week after voters in the state approved legalization of recreational cannabis. According to various newspaper reports, Niles City in southwestern Michigan and Pinckney village in the southeastern part of the state have decided to opt out, at least for now. St. Joseph in southwestern Michigan is expected to do the same. Meanwhile, the Detroit Free Press reported Tuesday that officials at colleges across the state say marijuana won’t be allowed on campuses. That’s because they don’t want to jeopardize federal funding since marijuana is still illegal...

    “The Vagina Monologues” used to be celebrated as a subversive blow against patriarchy, or something. Now it’s just viewed as another invalidation of transgender lives. The Women’s Resource Center at Eastern Michigan University is pulling the plug on productions, claiming it can’t legally alter the script created by Eve Ensler, MLive reports:

    “He asked us if the officer was dead. I responded with ‘I didn’t know.’ He put his head down and was crying. He said his intention was to kill the officer….He said that he was here for his mission — his mission was to kill a United States government employee. His mission was to kill and be killed. He said his mission was not over. He said he would have a better chance of success and enter into heaven. He said they needed to act against the enemies of Allah. He blamed the United States government for their support of...

    A white retired firefighter in Michigan found guilty of firing a shotgun from his porch at a black teenager who knocked on his front door because he was lost was sentenced Tuesday to four to 10 years in prison. Jeffrey Zeigler, dressed in a grey jumpsuit with his hands shackled in front of him, appeared in an Oakland County courtroom where a judge sentenced him to two to 10 years for one count of assault with intent to do great bodily harm and two years for one count of felony firearm. He was convicted on Oct. 12. The sentences will...

    Robert Cahaly, senior strategist for the Trafalgar Group, made a name for himself in 2016 by being the only pollster to correctly show Donald Trump with a lead in Michigan and Pennsylvania -- two key states he carried -- heading into Election Day. (He did not poll Wisconsin, another surprising win for Trump.) Cahaly also showed Trump ahead in North Carolina and Florida, both of which he won, securing his improbable 304-227 Electoral College victory over Hillary Clinton. Cahaly managed to pick up support for Trump that all other pollsters missed by employing a unique method that sought to measure...

    Michigan Democrat Rashida Tlaib, who won a seat in the US House of Representatives, wrapped herself in a “Palestinian” flag at her victory party. She is one of the two first Muslim women ever to be elected to the deliberative body, along with Somali Ilhan Omar from Minnesota. Daughter of Arabs who left Samaria for Nicaragua and later Detroit, Tlaib became the first Muslim female member of Michigan’s state legislature a decade ago. Tlaib is a vocal critic of President Donald Trump and was arrested two years ago for disrupting a Trump speech in Detroit, reported Yeshiva World. Asked during...

    Tlaib, of course, had nothing to say about the genocidal incitement against Jews and Israel that regularly features on Palestinian television. She did say, however, that she favors a one-state, not two-state, “solution” to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict: “One state. It has to be one state. Separate but equal does not work. Indeed it doesn’t. A Palestinian state would be a new base for renewed jihad attacks against Israel. But a “one-state solution” would be even worse, unless that state is the current State of Israel, but that is not the one state Tlaib has in mind. The hijabed (and therefore...

    James pulling the upset in Trump-friendly Michigan is a longer shot than Bob Menendez losing in Trump-hostile New Jersey. I wouldn’t wager on it even with someone else’s money. But I’m throwing this goofy poll at you anyway because: 1) It’s Election Day eve and goofy outliers are fun, like a suspiciously large present under the Christmas tree. What’s in that box? Probably it’s just a pair of socks placed in an oversized container as a gag gift. In fact, that’s definitely what it is. But there’s just enough doubt to create a bit of suspense. 2) I like James...

    “I sit in my seat and I immediately smell something, and I thought, ‘Not another flight that smells bad,’” Matthew Meehan of Bay City, Michigan, told Yahoo Lifestyle of last Thursday’s flight from hell. “I realized the person next to me also had their nose covered,” he continued. “And then I went to take my charger out, bent down completely to charge my phone and realized it’s not just a smell, it’s actually feces and it’s all over the back of my legs, it’s all over the floor, all over the wall of the plane.” He and the fellow flier rushed over...

    A reporter for a Michigan newspaper called Michigan Senate Republican candidate John James’s campaign looking for an interview and thought she hung up the phone before leaving a voicemail saying “f---ing John James … that would suck.” .. “The liberal media can’t stand the idea of a job creator and combat veteran coming to Washington to shake up the system. This happened as we closed in within the margin of error.” James, who was at one point down by 20 points in multiple polls, is now only behind by 2 points, according to a Change Research poll released just less...

    On the Michigan ballot for Supreme Court there are 6 candidates, you can vote for 2. However if you don't look up beforehand there is no party affiliation to guide your decision. The candidates are: Samuel Bagenstos Megan Kathleen Cavanagh Elizabeth T. Clement Justice of Supreme Court Doug Dern Kerry Lee Morgan Kurtis T. Wilder Justice of Supreme Court In my research it appears that Clement and Wilder are the closest to being conservative. If you agree the easiest way to identify them on your ballot is they both have "Justice of Supreme Court" associated with their names, the others...

    A political action committee run by Republican women opposed to Donald Trump is getting involved in Michigan's most competitive Congressional races — and supporting the Democrat candidates. Republican Women for Progress PAC tells Metro Times it has taken out $50,000 television ad buys in Michigan's 11th and 8th Congressional District races. Both races feature a moderate Democrat against a Trump-aligned Republican. In MI-11, Democrat Haley Stevens is up against Republican Lena Epstein, the former Michigan chair for the Trump campaign. In MI-08, Elissa Slotkin is trying to unseat incumbent Rep. Mike Bishop.
