  • Blue State Blues: Democrats Back Policy That Helped Lead to Parkland Shooting

    Breitbart ^ | 09/20/2019 | Joel B Pollak
    Several Democrats running for their party’s nomination in 2020 are backing a policy of easing school discipline, arguing that they want to stop a “school-to-prison pipeline” that hurts minority students. But according to Andrew Pollack (no relation), whose daughter, Meadow, was among the victims in the Parkland school shooting last February, those policies allow potentially dangerous people to keep a clean record, letting them pass firearm background checks.

    This week, The New York Times caved to online bullying and changed a headline for an article covering President Donald Trump's remarks after the horrible shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio. The original headline, "Trump Urges Unity Vs. Racism," was met with outrage on social media by those on the left. During the day, the hashtag #CancelNYT began trending. The headline was changed to "Assailing Hate but Not Guns." So, if the headline was initially wrong, what did Trump say on Monday in response to the shootings? Trump noted that the El Paso shooter had "posted a...

    My policies: 1. Jail time for women who have abortions - This includes young women who are confused. 2. Unrestricted free trade - We need to stop supporting middle aged men in industries that don’t want to compete. Note that trade restrictions related to weapons and to ensure base domestic food supply are ok, but it is not Ok to protect our general industrial capacity. 3. Regulation elimination - I would like a 25 reduction in federal regulations for each of the next 10 years. 4. Reduction in taxes, especially on high income earners 5. Stop passing laws to help...

    A federal judge ordered the Trump administration to stop its new policy of sending asylum-seekers who jumped the border back to Mexico to wait while their cases proceed, ruling Monday that the plan was likely illegal... Judge Richard Seeborg, an Obama appointee to the bench, said... Mexico is so dangerous that making asylum-seekers wait there — even if they’re not from Mexico — is untenable.

    Victor Davis Hanson takes a historical lens to Donald Trump’s pledge to “Make America Great Again.” Have such things been done in the past? Have certain gifted leaders been able to arrest and even reverse nations in seemingly inexorable decline? Professor Hanson discusses the small group of leaders he believes met that mandate, and explains what they have in common. 20 minute audio (podcast)

With the encouragement of Rep. Rob Bishop and Gov. Gary Herbert, Acting Assistant Secretary of Interior Susan Combs came to town this week to discuss a possible move to either Salt Lake City or Ogden. Her boss, Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke, has pushed the idea of moving more of Interior’s work to the western United States where most federal lands are.
  • Constructing Truth: the FBI's (non)recording policy

    Forbes ^ | 27 July, 2011 | Harvey Silverglate
    Instead of electronically recording its interviews and interrogations, the FBI’s policy is to rely on agents’ typewritten “section 302 reports,” crafted to reflect the supposed substance of the exchange. At such sessions, one agent takes notes by hand while the second agent—in the traditional two-agent FBI interviewing team—conducts the interview/interrogation. Tape recordings are almost never done because such recordation is – believe it or not – against formal written FBI policy. Therefore, the 302 report becomes the sole arbiter of what was, and was not, said; moreover, as we will see below, any interviewee who contests its accuracy risks prosecution....

    Some Policy: After yet another highly publicized and very deadly weekend in Chicago, Mayor Rahm Emanual has come up with a plan to finally address the rising gang-related violence. Sort of. He’s essentially asking gangs to cut it out. While promising to deploy “hundreds” more police officers, Emanuel said in an address that he also wants to see an “attitudinal change” among Chicagoans — and especially gang bangers.

    America is trying to win a race of technological dominance over China, but the education system isn’t exactly playing along, and increasingly, it’s up to the corporate world to fill in the gaps. U.S. employers face serious skill shortages in several industries including health care and science and technology, with some reports claiming that as many as 500,000 tech jobs go unfilled each year, and the U.S. Labor Department saying for a decade starting in 2015 there will be an estimated 1 million computing jobs without applicants to fill them. The Computing Technology Industry Association (CompTIA) estimates that 1.8 million...

    Where did the current policy of separating children from the parents during Illegal border crossings originate? All I find when I search are it's all the Trump Administrations fault. Every search engine seems to come up nothing but the Left's viewpoint here. Yet I have read someplace that these policies predate Trump. So any help appreciated on information on this.

    An Indiana teacher says he was forced to resign after he refused to comply with the school district’s policy of addressing transgender students by their preferred names. John Kluge, the former orchestra teacher at Brownsburg High School in Brownsburg, Indiana, argued that the policy ― which also requires teachers to refer to students using the pronouns which best align with their gender identity ― goes against his religious beliefs and violates the First Amendment. “I’m being compelled to encourage students in what I believe is something that’s a dangerous lifestyle,” the teacher, who has been with the Brownsburg School District...

    Customers are not only paying for the coffee; they are paying for the heat and air conditioning, tables, accessible WiFi and bathrooms. Partners are paid to keep the place clean and comfortable for customers who spend literal hours studying, working, and holding meetings in the store. It seems like a fair trade to me. It doesn’t seem like a fair trade to me, however, if I pay $5 for my drink and then have to wait in line with a bunch of random tourists who just walked in wanting to use the single-family bathroom without buying anything. It also doesn’t...

The bill appears to be almost identical to the version I analyzed in great detail in an op-ed for The Federalist last year.

    ...since the beginning of the 21st century the U.S. government has struggled to create and maintain a viable launch industry...Even as the federal government struggled with this problem, a fledgling crop of new American private launch companies have emerged in the past decade, funded initially by the vast profits produced by the newly born internet industry. These new companies have not been motivated by national prestige, military strength, or any of the traditional national political goals of the federal government. Instead, these private entities have been driven by profit, competition, and in some cases the ideas of the visionary individuals...
