DHS Secretary Kelly Ends DAPA Amnesty

DHS Secretary Kelly Ends DAPA Amnesty


DHS Secretary John Kelly partially fulfilled one of President Trump's key campaign promises on Thursday night when he rescinded the DAPA amnesty. The illegal and unconstitutional executive amnesty issued by former President Barack Obama would have granted an estimated 5 million work permits to illegal aliens who were the parents of U.S. citizens or Legal Permanent Residents.

The Administration has yet to take action on the DACA Amnesty, and a DHS report last week showed that the Trump Administration has issued thousands of new work permits to illegal aliens and renewed more than a 100,000 more since taking office.

Are We Nearing Civil War?

Are We Nearing Civil War?

June 13, 2017 

President Trump may be chief of state, head of government and commander in chief, but his administration is shot through with disloyalists plotting to bring him down.
We are approaching something of a civil war where the capital city seeks the overthrow of the sovereign and its own restoration.

Articles: The Zinnification of America

This is an example of how our schools got so screwed up. This is still being taught to our teachers.

Howard Zinn
Articles: The Zinnification of America

The Zinnification of America

This may sound like it, but it’s not a journal of winetasting. It’s about the undue, horrific influence of a man named Howard Zinn. He became a famous, or accurately infamous, historian. Zinn, more than any other man, turned our history books on their heads, and in a way, changed the contemporary course of history. “Who controls the past, controls the future.” He excelled at this task.

He was somewhat wispy and vulnerable looking in spite of being tall. He could not debate well and he spoke slowly, as if he was in a mildly drugged high. He had a following of female students that was obvious, with lots of student rumors swirling around about his character. He was liked by the majority of his students, who like myself, wanted to take his classes. He was edgy and cool.

He was one of the fathers of the new left back in the late sixties and seventies. He inspired the SDS, coupling with them, making up many of the stories of why America was such a horrible place. The stories became his famous book A People’s History of the United States. In hindsight, it was obvious he made them up (being kind, let’s just say he slanted things), because he was a Marxist. During those years he spoke of the importance of “revolutionary thinking” in his classrooms. It’s hard to believe his influence grew so much.

Buyer Beware: School Choice and Voucher Programs Require Alignment With Common Core

Buyer Beware: School Choice and Voucher Programs Require Alignment With Common Core

The Glenn Beck Program Posted on Friday, Jun 9, 2017

Republicans are selling a false bill of goods when it comes to providing parents choices to escape Common Core and public education. Shannon Joy, host of The Shannon Joy Show and an expert on Common Core, joined The Glenn Beck Program on Friday to speak frankly on the matter. 

“Republicans now are putting forth a false solution. They’re coming out — Donald Trump, Betsy Devos, some of our favorite conservative Republicans — I don’t know if they quite understand the nuance of this, but they’re pitching to conservatives the idea of school choice vouchers and charters as a solution when that is not the case. In every piece of legislation and every state, including Texas which voted it down just recently because of this, every voucher program, every choice program requires that the user of that voucher or that choice education institution must be aligned with the federal standards. Those standards are Common Core,” Joy said. 

Mike Opelka, filling in for Glenn on radio, asked what parents need to know. 

“I think we need to arm parents with information. If they’re willing to go into battle against Common Core, we need to give them the ammunition. So what are the one or two things you as a parent can say when you’re up there questioning these folks on Common Core?” Opelka asked. 

Joy pointed out that education planners on the right and the left try to distract parents with the notion of students needing standards — but that isn’t the issue. “Every parent wants a school to have high standards. That’s obvious. The question isn’t the standards, it’s the curriculum,” Joy said.

Smith: Make the Successful Everglades Python Hunt Permanent

Make the Successful Everglades Python Hunt Permanent

June 5, 2017 - 6:00am 
Those who scoffed in March at the South Florida Water Management District's Python Elimination Program can eat their words now.
The program ended June 1 as an unqualified success -- 154 dead snakes, weighing a total of 4,000 pounds, all taken from Water Management District lands in Miami-Dade County. Many females killed were carrying eggs.
Drop in the bucket, you say? Considering wildlife officials estimate there may be as many as 150,000 Burmese pythons in the Florida Everglades, slithering eating machines competing for the ecosystem's wildlife -- maybe you're right. Maybe 154 kills don't solve the problem.
But the Water Management District always said, we have to start somewhere, and four years ago when a python hunt first was proposed, no environmental group was prepared to take it on. In fact, nobody had a suggestion for any kind of eradication program. Only the District stepped up.

Pakistan Observer: US bureaucracy at war with Trump

US bureaucracy at war with Trump

Geopolitical Notes From India
M D Nalapat  
CNN has been a reliable medium for the permanent US bureaucracy to get its views telegraphed across the globe. Embedded in US policy, the channel has seldom deviated from the messaging favoured by the Washington Beltway, whether this be the refrain that Saddam Hussein was storing mountains of WMD in his closets or that Muammar Kaddafy tortured and killed his fellow citizens on an industrial scale. During the past two years, it has served as a potent recruiting tool for IS, by constantly repeating the falsehood that Bashar Assad in Damascus is conducting a genocide of Syria’s Sunni majority. This when wife Asma as well as 70% of his ministers are themselves Sunni.
Interestingly, there are only anonymous “government sources” that CNN, the New York Times, the Washington Post and other media outlets committed to ensuring the successful impeachment of the 45th President of the United States. Perhaps because these are all either serving or retired members of the Clinton brotherhood within the permanent bureaucracy. During their eight years in office, followed by eight George W Bush years, the Clintons ensured that those loyal to them were protected, and indeed had their careers boosted. This because easier once Barack Obama was sworn in as President of the US, given that the “Obama administration” was in large measure a continuation of the Clinton administration of the 1990s. The other side of such generosity was a feral vindictiveness fixated on those whom the Clintons believed were disloyal to them or did something opposed to the Clintons or to their favourites.
The Clinton machine quickly drew first blood after the swearing in of Donald John Trump, securing the resignation of National Security Advisor Michael Flynn...

Forbes Opinion: NY Vs DC


There is an important and damaging cultural divide between the Trumps and the governing system that the president and his closest allies are trying to tame.  Call it New York vs. Washington, or business vs government, but it comes down to this:  the president hasn’t gotten control over the bureaucracy, much of which is in open rebellion against him.  You can see it by the remarkably low numbers of political appointees currently approved by the Senate, as by the torrent of leaks aimed at damaging Trump and his top aides.

The New Yorkers—famously, the Trumps themselves, the Kushners, and the bankers in the Cabinet and the White House—seem to have come to Washington expecting that, once The Donald had been sworn in, the bureaucrats would do what they were told.  The New Yorkers—as we saw during the election campaign and throughout the transition—did not believe they needed a large organization, staffed with their own loyal followers.  They thought the important thing was to make the right decisions, and install a few key officials at the very top.

Jenny Beth’s Journal: $1 trillion spending bill isn’t ‘what Trump voters wanted or expected’

Jenny Beth’s Journal: $1 trillion spending bill
isn’t ‘what Trump voters wanted or expected’

  • May 4, 2017
  • President Donald J. Trump during the election talked a ‘big-league’ game about shaking things up in Washington, D.C. but, if the $1 trillion spending bill heading to his desk is any indication, President Trump has botched the art of this deal and continues the trend of leaving hardworking taxpayers out to dry, Tea Party Patriots Co-Founder Jenny Beth Martin says in her latest column.
  • The Hill has the commentary:
    [President Trump] got rolled so badly [on the spending bill] that Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi bragged about it openly.
    And why shouldn’t they brag? From minority positions, they: Prevented President Trump from getting any money to begin construction of the border wall he campaigned on; prevented him from being able to cut off federal funding for so-called “sanctuary cities;” halved his supplemental defense-spending request, and put conditions on it; refused to terminate federal funding for Planned Parenthood; refused his proposed significant cuts to the Environmental Protection Agency, and blocked his proposed staff cuts there; increased funding for the National Institutes of Health; refused to defund the National Endowment for the Arts or the Legal Services Corporation, among others; and actually increased domestic discretionary spending, rather than cut it or even hold the line.
    No matter how hard the administration may try to spin this as a victory for Trump, it’s not. It’s not what Trump voters wanted or expected when they sent him to Washington.

MIT Is Making Kid-Friendly Communist Propaganda

MIT Is Making Kid-Friendly Communist Propaganda

In order to make the deadliest ideology of the 20th century palatable to young Americans, Communism for Kids is coming to a bookstore near you.

This newly released book from MIT Press “proposes a different kind of communism, one that is true to its ideals and free from authoritarianism.”

The death toll from communist regimes in the 20th century is well-documented. One study found that more people were killed under communism than homicide and genocide combined, and only 9 million more people were killed in World War I and World War II combined than under governments of this ideology.

Communism seemingly gets a pass to be reimagined as a sweet fable.

Another study showed how the mass killings of civilians by their own governments took an immediate nosedive after the collapse of the Soviet Union and international communism.

According to the Amazon synopsis, the book weaves a fairy tale of “jealous princesses, fancy swords, displaced peasants, mean bosses, and tired workers.”

It is bewildering why MIT Press would publish a book that cutesies up the political creed that gave the world Joseph Stalin, Mao Zedong, Fidel Castro, and many more of the world’s most prolific mass murderers. None of these brutal dictators are mentioned in the book, according to The Washington Free Beacon.

Communism seemingly gets a pass to be reimagined as a sweet fable while it’s inconceivable that a book called Fascism for Kids would ever be printed by a reputable publisher.

Marion Smith of the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation wrote, according to The Washington Free Beacon:
While I can imagine a book so titled that would make a valuable contribution to a reader’s understanding of the truth about communism, the book MIT Press published is not it. Communism for Kids whitewashes and infantilizes ideas that, when put into action, have cost more than 100 million lives.
This odd attempt to get kids into communism is unlikely to spawn a new generation of true believers on its own, but it does highlight the growing problem for younger Americans who are generally clueless about even recent history.

As The Daily Signal previously reported, a study from the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation found that millennials in particular are stunningly ignorant about what occurred under the Soviet Union and other communist regimes just a generation ago.

One-third of millennials surveyed actually believe that more people were killed under former President George W. Bush than under Soviet dictator Stalin.
Under communism, tyranny is a feature, not a bug.

If one truly wants to teach young Americans what communism is really about, it would be better to hand them a copy of the classic Animal Farm, by George Orwell.

The book is an allegory – using farm animals as stand-ins – about the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia a century ago. The revolutionary promise of “all animals are equal” is used to overthrow farmers, but quickly turns into a new, even more oppressive tyranny under animal overlords.

A reign of forced labor, intimidation, and terror puts the animals under the thumb of their new masters – their ideals used to prop up an all-powerful regime. The refashioned creed becomes “all animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.” In the end, human, or rather “animal,” nature proved to be more powerful than any ideology.

As the Roman poet Horace once said: “You can drive out nature with a pitchfork, but she will ever hurry back.”

This lesson from Orwell would be a much better way to teach young people about destructive ideology than a fanciful account of how “true” communism – minus the mean authoritarian stuff and mass murder – would be truly grand.

Under communism, tyranny is a feature, not a bug.
