    Despite spending more per pupil than all but two large school districts in America, at least half a dozen government schools in Baltimore were unable to produce one single student who was proficient in either English or math last year. The shocking results, uncovered by Project Baltimore, show a monumental tragedy unfolding in the city that represents a microcosm of the damage being inflicted on children across America. The proficiency tests put students in five categories, with four and five considered proficient, and one through three considered not proficient.
  • Russia-gate Flops as Democrats’ Golden Ticket

    The national Democrats saw Russia-gate and the drive to impeach President Trump as their golden ticket back to power, but so far the ticket seems to be made of fool’s gold ___ The national Democratic Party and many liberals have bet heavily on the Russia-gate investigation as a way to oust President Trump from office and to catapult Democrats to victories this year and in 2018, but the gamble appears not to be paying off. The Democrats’ disappointing loss in a special election to fill a congressional seat in an affluent Atlanta suburb is just the latest indication that the...
  • Why Obama’s presidency didn’t lead to black progress

    NY Post Op-Ed ^ | 6-17-2017 | Jason Riley
    Since the 1960s, black leaders have placed a heavy emphasis on gaining political power, and Barack Obama’s presidency represented the apex of those efforts. The assumption — rarely challenged — is that black political clout must come before black social and economic advancement. But as Jason L. Riley argues in this excerpt from his new book, “False Black Power” (Templeton Press), political success has not been a major factor in the rise of racial and ethnic groups from poverty to prosperity...... Yet the socioeconomic progress that was supposed to follow in the wake of these political gains never materialized. During...

    BALTIMORE (WBFF) -- A Project Baltimore investigation has found five Baltimore City high schools and one middle school do not have a single student proficient in the state tested subjects of math and English.We sat down with a teen who attends one of those schools and has overcome incredible challenges to find success.Navon Warren grew up in West Baltimore. He was three months old when his father was shot to death. Before his 18th birthday, he would lose two uncles and a classmate, all gunned down on the streets of Baltimore.“I’ve lost a lot of people, so I’m used to...

    It's finally official. The Affordable Care Act is a public-policy flop of epic proportions. That's the only possible conclusion from the Blue Cross Blue Shield of Kansas City announcement last week that it will drop out of many markets in Kansas and Missouri. The firm lost $100 million under the Obamacare insurance exchanges from 2014 to 2016. This is another body blow to the government-insurance system Barack Obama created in 2010. Blue Cross is one of the biggest health insurers in the nation, and now 25 more counties in these states will have no insurer left. Nearly every news...

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) is tempering expectations that the Senate will pass an overhaul of the nation’s healthcare system, promising his colleagues a vote but not success. McConnell in his public comments and private conversations about the ObamaCare repeal and replace bill is painting a more sober picture than Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), who in March guaranteed passage through the House.

    Republican legislators in the House of Representatives have pushed back a vote to repeal Obamacare until next week, it was reported on Thursday. That means President Donald Trump's hopes for a major legislative 'win' before the expiration of his first 100 days in office appear to be on life support. Trump was eager to resuscitate an earlier Republican bid to pass a health care bill that would have replaced the Affordable Care Act, the signature piece of legislation passed by his predecessor, Barack Obama.< But House Speaker Paul Ryan and his senior GOP colleagues failed to muster the necessary number...

    First, Humana pulled out of Obamacare for 2018. Then, Wellmark announced it was leaving. Which health insurer could be next? The failure of the GOP health care plan in Congress and the ongoing uncertainty surrounding the Trump administration's next moves have left insurers skittish about participating in the Obamacare exchanges next year. Certainly, Obamacare was troubled before President Trump took office. But many experts, including the Congressional Budget Office, felt Obamacare was stable overall. Certainly, Obamacare was troubled before President Trump took office. Several major insurers scaled back their involvement on the exchanges, while others hiked premiums to cover their...

    As Republicans prepare to vote on their health care bill, which does not fully repeal Obamacare, a number of Republicans say it’s a mistake to put their names to the plan: “Just let Obamacare collapse, then challenge the Democrats to come in and help us fix the mess they created,” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) told Fox News Friday morning, as lawmakers debated the latest iteration of the bill on the House floor. “President Trump’s going to be judged by the outcome of the legislation, and what I see in the House, I don’t think this legislation is going to move...

    MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow had the “story of the century” when she reported on President Donald Trump’s tax returns. It turned out to be two pages of his tax returns from 2005, showing he paid $38 million in taxes on a 25 percent tax rate. The lead-in to her program was akin to a complex form of clickbait, a bait-and-switch tactic to gain more viewers and audience. Fellow journalists and viewers were unhappy for Maddow promoting the story in the manner that she did. Maddow, speaking on NBC’s “Tonight Show” with Jimmy Fallon, seemingly agreed with Fallon that the report was...

    Tuesday on his nationally syndicated radio show, conservative talker Rush Limbaugh declared Monday’s “Not My President’s Day” protests to be a failure. According to Limbaugh, this protest and other movements are losing steam because they are having little impact on President Donald Trump and will continue to diminish as they begin to be ignored by most of the public.

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) sounded like a spokeswoman for an old Verizon ad campaign. "Can you hear?" she continuously said to the crowds gathered Monday night on the steps of the Supreme Court. As top Democratic leaders held a protest against President Donald Trump's executive order on immigration, the microphone they used did not work properly. The crowds could not hear what was being said so resorted to chants including "Lock him up!" in reference to Trump. "Look at that moon. It's a new moon. All right, can you hear me now?" Pelosi said at one point. She...

    One of the Obama administration’s signature efforts in education, which pumped billions of federal dollars into overhauling the nation’s worst schools, failed to produce meaningful results, according to a federal analysis. Test scores, graduation rates and college enrollment were no different in schools that received money through the School Improvement Grants program — the largest federal investment ever targeted to failing schools — than in schools that did not.

    Even though Obama’s presidency comes to an end Friday, The Great Revision has long been underway. Obama and the mainstream media have been spreading falsehoods and fantasies about his record. Last year, I co-wrote and published a comprehensive takedown of Obama’s presidency so that America wouldn’t be so easily fooled. Here are five failures that stand in stark contrast to the fictions Obama has been spreading about his legacy:1. Job growth was actually badObama fancies himself a great president for the economy, citing “record job growth” and a low unemployment rate as proof. What he won’t tell you is that...

    OBAMA: "Well, I — I — what it indicated was something that we kept on seeing throughout my presidency, and that was a tactical decision on the part of Republicans to say no because their view was that if they said yes, and there was any sort of bipartisan cooperation, that would benefit me politically. And if there wasn’t, that would hurt me politically particularly at a time when the economy was doing poorly. They figured we could do pretty good with midterms if it seems as if Washington’s dysfunctional at a time when everybody’s hurting."

    Columnist and admitted Meryl Streep fan Piers Morgan said the actress’ anti-Donald Trump rant delivered during Sunday night’s Golden Globes was “easily” the worst performance of her career. In his column Monday for The Daily Mail, Mr. Morgan lamented the “stench of hypocrisy” throughout Ms. Streep’s speech that condemned the president-elect and accused him of bullying others. “She began by saying that Hollywood, foreigners and the press are ‘the most vilified segments of American society right now,’” Mr. Morgan wrote. “At which point the cameras panned out to hundreds of the richest, most privileged people in American society sitting in...
