Teach your children well? Michael Mulgrew shows the way


At the American Federation of Teachers convention in Los Angeles this past July, in defense of Common Core, Michael Mulgrew said:

“If someone takes something from me, I’m going to grab it right back out of their cold, twisted, sick hands and say it is mine! You do not take what is mine! And I’m going to punch you in the face and push you in the dirt because this is the teachers’! These are our tools and you sick people need to deal with us and the children that we teach. Thank you very much!”
Wow…just wow.

Why are the leftists so afraid of US exceptionalism?



“I get always a little uptight when I hear politicians say how exceptional we are – not because we’re not exceptional, but because it’s kind of in-your-face and a lot of other people are exceptional, a lot of other places do exceptional things.” - John Kerry

Once again, Secretary of State Kerry has back-handedly championed the cause of mediocrity. 
The leftist progressives would have you believe that it’s possible for everyone to be exceptional, which is an oxymoronic idea. What they really mean is that none should be exceptional, therefore everyone should be the same. Their idea of utopian bliss: a monochrome world where all people are dreamless, uninspired automatons.
But the telling part of Kerry’s comment is the phrase “in-your-face.” The left can’t stand that there exists for some a heightened level of passion and confidence, a strong defense of one’s position which puts them into direct confrontation with their opponents.
In this “put up or shut up” scenario, the leftists can’t compete. Their milieu is furtive cunning and manipulation. When anything they do is pulled into daylight, fully open for all to see, they fear being exposed as frauds, liars and seditionists.
It was exceptionalism that made the United States the leading force in the Twentieth Century. Here and now, in the Twenty-first Century, we are watching the leftists attempt to drag the US down into the swamp with the rest of the snakes and leeches, where everything swims in the muck to simply survive. 
We have been and can be better than that, and God willing we will again find our way back to being exceptional.

Paul R. Ehrlich still predicts population catastrophe




One-note-singer Paul Ehrlich has been predicting a world population disaster since the 1960’s.
The author of “The Population Bomb” (1968) was recently interviewed on HuffPost Live.
Ehrlich claimed we would soon wonder if “is it perfectly okay to eat the bodies of your dead because we’re all so hungry?” He added that humanity is “moving in that direction with a ridiculous speed.”

Recent Headlines – Maher and Muslims



From The Washington Times:
Bill Maher: Liberals too soft on Islam, the 'elephant in the room'
http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2014/may/10/bill-maher-liberals-too-soft-islam-elephant-room/

Thanks, Bill, for pointing out this glaring hypocrisy on the left. You just might make some liberals finally aware of the evils of shariah. Forget the “war on women” -- shariah law treats women as disposable objects.





From The New York Times:
New York Police Recruit Muslims to Be Informers

[Sarcasm alert] Oh yeah, I can see some reliable information coming from the people who practice taqiyya and kitman. If you are unfamiliar with those terms, they are principals of Islam, which allow Muslims to lie to unbelievers. Taqiyya refers to outright lies and falsehoods; kitman refers to omitting information.

Beware misleading headlines and articles



Below is a short article that appeared in the New York Times. It’s not much, a headline and one paragraph, comprised of four sentences. But the implied meanings in this article are telling of the left’s agenda, and the media’s complicity in enabling the left’s campaign of misinformation.

      New York Times | U.S. | National Briefing | Midwest | 
      By the Associated Press, April 11, 2014

      Ohio: Geologists Link Earthquakes to Gas Drilling

      State geologists have linked earthquakes in a geologic formation deep under the Appalachians to gas            drilling, leading Ohio to issue new permit conditions on Friday in certain areas. A state investigation of 
     five small tremors in the Youngstown area last month has found the high-pressure injection of sand, water      and chemicals that accompanies fracking in the Utica Shale may have increased pressure on a small,              unknown fault, said Rick Simmers, chief of the oil and gas division of the State Department of 
     Natural Resources. He called the link probable. While earlier studies had linked earthquakes to a 
     deep-injection well used for the disposal of fracking wastewater, this is the first time tremors have 
     been tied directly to fracking, he said.

First there’s the misleading headline; if you were just getting your news from headlines, you would be led to assume that scientists have somehow determined that gas drilling causes earthquakes. I’m a little surprised that the writer of this AP article didn’t use the buzzword “fracking” instead of “gas drilling” in the headline because that would have added more “pop” to it.

Allow us to re-write this article as follows:
“State geologists have [tenuously] linked earthquakes in an [unsubstantiated] geologic formation deep under the Appalachians to gas drilling [a.k.a. “fracking”], leading Ohio to issue new permit conditions on Friday in certain areas.” Notice that all it takes is an unfounded assertion by “scientists” to spur governmental authorities to make up new rules for an industry.

The next is a run-on sentence, but we will correct it as we go:
“[Fracking is] the high-pressure injection of sand, water and chemicals [deep underground.] Five small tremors occurred in the Youngstown area last month. A state investigation has found [conjectured that] fracking in the Utica Shale may have increased pressure on a small, unknown fault, said Rick Simmers, chief of the oil and gas division of the State Department of Natural Resources.” Emphasis added.

“He called the link probable.” Translation: It could happen but we don’t know for sure.

“While earlier studies had [tenuously] linked earthquakes to a deep-injection well used for the disposal of fracking wastewater, this is the first time tremors have been [speciously] tied directly to fracking, [according to Mr. Simmers].”

While it would be exhausting to try to dissect every instance of misinformation, just be aware that a lot of what you read or hear is crafted to mislead you.

To quote the old saw: Forewarned is forearmed.

Brandeis' war on women and women's advocates


Denied honor for speaking truth
‘‘Once it’s defeated, it can mutate into something peaceful. It’s very difficult to even talk about peace now. They’re not interested in peace. I think that we are at war with Islam. And there’s no middle ground in wars.’’
