Peter Beck was just hired by the Fresno Unified School District in California to be a cultural studies teacher at a new middle school set to open in a few weeks. He apparently has a decade of cultural studies teaching experience, including African-American, Chicano, and Southeast Asian studies.
Oh yeah, and he’s white. This poses a problem according to local black leaders and other members of the community who are protesting his hiring. How can a white male adequately teach students about Black, Read more [...]
The world media has joined Hamas in trying to shame Israel for protecting itself... but Hamas may have recently "jumped the shark" when they accidentally killed many of their own people and then tried to blame the destruction on an Israeli attack.
Fortunately for the world, Italian journalist Gabriele Barbati was in Gaza and was able to get confirmation from witnesses that the Al Shati "massacre" was actually caused by a Hamas rocket that was misfired.
Almost immediately Barbati's Read more [...]
Could Ohio be the next state to save it's children from the horrors of the Common Core? It looks like it could happen...
Lawmakers in the state of Ohio are mounting a late effort to have their state join the growing exodus from Common Core multistate education standards.
A new bill would mandate the immediate abandonment of Common Core and the implementation of brand new standards.
Ohio, like many states, chose to start the switch to Common Core about four years ago, encouraged in part Read more [...]
"...at base the Palestinian national movement since its inception in 1920 has not been about the establishment of a Palestinian Arab state but rather the destruction of the Jewish state or earlier the prevention of the establishment of a Jewish state and so it remains to this day which is why the PLO has consistently refused statehood every time it has been offered them since 1993." - Caroline Glick, author of The Israeli Solution
The Israeli-Palestinian conflict is an ever present topic in politics. Read more [...]
If there was any doubt that the huge flood of illegals crossing into the US is not a direct result of Obama’s promise of amnesty and welfare, think again!
Border Patrol agents working the border are hearing the same thing over and over again from the thousands of illegals they managed to detain. Chris Cabrera, Vice President of the National Border Patrol Council Local 3307 spoke about the mantra that all of the illegals are repeating:
“I don’t usually get into the political part of it, Read more [...]
If you make any mention of manipulated computer data and formulas, global warming believers will call you a conspiracy theorist.
Unless of course reality isn’t happening exactly as it was predicted. Like Antarctic sea ice growing instead of rapidly melting away. It’s such an inconvenient truth that there must be some computer glitch or problem with the algorithms. In other words, the sea ice isn’t melting, at least as fast as the global warming unbelievers think it is. The Daily Caller reported:
But Read more [...]
Matt Kidd is a homosexual with an MBA from New York University. He heads up an organization called Reaching Out MBA that puts on a conference every year, including a job fair, for college-level members of the LGBT community. Campus Reform reported:

A minister from Turkey’s conservative Muslim government outlined in some detail what he thought Turkish women must do in order to be chaste and honorable Muslims. Or, more specifically, he outlined what Turkish women must not do. According to this minister, chastity involves not showing off your beauty (i.e., wearing a head-to-toe black sack) and not laughing in public.
That’s right. Good Turkish women don’t laugh in public. After hearing things like this, I can’t imagine this advice will Read more [...]
According to the Center for Inquiry, good health care is beset by ignorance—the ignorance of faith and the ignorance of the anti-scientific (with apparently a great deal of overlap):
1. The imposition of religious dogma on health care, resulting in limited access to and even the denial of medical services;
2. The shameless marketing of sham remedies, sold as “natural” or “traditional” cures, often accompanied by the rejection of scientifically proven treatments.
According to the website Read more [...]

Our business friendly climate made our country great. We became the world's lone superpower thanks mainly to our dynamic and flexible economy... and that economy was born out of a low tax, low regulation society.
But times they-are-a-changing...
Today businesses are fleeing our psuedo-socialist taxes for friendlier climes and it's hurting our bottom line.

Remember when Republicans were the party of old, stuffy white people?
Ok. It still kind of is... but we're growing an edge. The liberals are led by dinosaurs like Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid. Conservatives are led by folks like Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, Sarah Palin, Bobby Jindal, and so many more.
Liberals are old and stale and saying the same old things.
Conservatives are young, fresh and full of ideas.
We may be on the cusp of something great...

Barack Obama has been telling us that he is planning on deporting the thousands of illegal alien unaccompanied kids back to their home countries. Yet, it seems that at least 30,000 of them are to be placed into the public school system throughout the US.
Earlier this month, the Obama administration announced that 30,340 foreign youths and children have already been placed around the US. At the time, the report also stated that there were another 4,280 still remaining in Texas near where the illegals Read more [...]
