Left-wing protesters invade College Republicans meeting, reportedly declare ‘dialogue is violence’

Leftist students invaded a school-approved meeting of the College Republicans at the University of California, Santa Cruz, on Sunday, reportedly chanting that “dialogue is violence” and accusing the GOP students of being Nazis, fascists, racists, and white supremacists. How did this start? Student activist Haik Adamian — a “ringleader” of the protest, according to Campus Reform — posted on the official UCSC Student Facebook group about the College Republicans meeting, the outlet said. “White Supremacist, fascist sympathizing College Republicans are having a meeting at McHenry library, room 0332. Everybody be aware of this violent racist activity happening everyday on this campus!” his post said, Campus Reform reported. “We need a movement of people on this campus that rejects the ‘right of assembly’ or ‘right of free speech’ for white supremacists and fascists.” What happened next? According to a statement from the College Republicans, posted by City on a Phil […] Read More

20 Percent of College Students Believe Beating Heads of Political Opponents is Acceptable

Twenty percent of college students believe physical violence is acceptable when you disagree with someone on politics. And 44% believe hate speech is not protected by the US Constitution. Of course, liberals define hate speech as any right of center speech they disagree with. The Brookings Institute conducted a survey of 1,500 college students around the nation, and found fully 44 percent think hate speech — whatever that is — isn’t a First Amendment right. About half that think violence is an OK form of protest. The indoctrination of the next generation is nearly complete. The left’s years and years of hard work at shutting down dissenting political views is paying off big time. What is hate speech, anyway? That’s not an American notion. Founding Fathers, after all, incorporated the First Amendment for the very reason of protecting political speech, words that irked, rhetoric that seemed more rabble-rousing than […] Read More

Mom Furious After School Handcuffed 8-Year-Old Son As Punishment

A North Carolina mother of a special needs 8-year-old is calling out William Warren school officials for handcuffing her child without notifying her, an outrageous traumatic experience that convinced the mother to relocate her son to another school. The mother, who asked not to be identified, told WTVD her son was involved in a classroom disturbance at William Warren Child Development School in November, when a school resource officer handcuffed the 8-year-old and took him to another room to calm down. The woman said that school officials never notified her about the incident, and when she confronted them they attempted to justify the imprisonment. “The only thing the resource officer could say was that he was a danger to himself or others,” the mother said, “but when you are eight at a special needs school based on behavior, you should not be able to handcuff a child.” Lee County […] Read More

Common Core: Absurdity, Mind Control, Surveillance and Sexualization of Children

Common core is the set of educational standards for American children funded by Bill Gates, the very same man who is pushing GMOs, vaccines and other New World Order (NWO) Agenda 21-style schemes. by Makia Freeman In another example of blatant doublespeak, the curricula are named “Common Core State Standards”, despite the fact they were forced onto the states with bribes, came top-down from the US Federal Government and were written by the international elite. Common Core first came onto the scene in 2009, after Obama took office, using money from the $350 million stimulus package. Common Core is another manifestation of a long-held dream of the NWO manipulators to replace the family with the State, a plan laid out in novels such as Brave New World by Aldous Huxley, which included reference to State hatcheries (i.e. State control of reproduction). Common Core: Of the Manipulators, By the Manipulators, […] Read More

Almost Two-Thirds of People in the Labor Force Do Not Have a College Degree, and Their Job Prospects Are Dimming

Stable, middle class jobs are on the decline for those without college degrees. The Trans-Pacific Partnership is not helping. Almost two-thirds of people in the labor force (65.1 percent) do not have a college degree. In fact, people without a college degree (which includes those without a high school degree, with a high school degree, some college education, and an associates’ degrees) make up the majority of the labor force in every state but the District of Columbia. Mississippi has the highest share of non-college educated workers (75.7 percent) while Massachusetts and the District of Columbia have the lowest shares (51 percent and 33.7 percent, respectively). It is no secret that wages for typical workers have stagnated over the past 35 years. The lagging recovery of construction and manufacturing sectors, two sectors which traditionally provide strong wages for workers without college degrees, is one reason for this wage stagnation. Trade agreements like the Trans-Pacific Partnership threaten to make the […] Read More

FBI Orders Teachers To Report Students Who Question Government

New federal guidelines have just been introduced across the country, and what they mandate is quite disturbing to civil libertarians. The FBI has now instructed high schools across the nation to report students who in any way criticize government policies and what the report phrases as “western corruption.” The FBI is interested in determining – as part of some warped “pre-crime” program – who might become potential future terrorists. The FBI warns in the report that that “anarchist extremists” are no different that ISIS terrorists. They further caution teachers against young people who are poor, as well as immigrants and others who travel to “suspicious” countries. These, they explain, are teens who are more likely to commit terrorism. Sarah Lazare, writing for AlterNet, notes that “based on the widely unpopular British ‘anti-terror’ mass surveillance program, the FBI’s ‘Preventing Violent Extremism in Schools’ guidelines, released in January, are almost certainly designed to single […] Read More

American Schools Mark World Hijab Day, Ignore Oppression of Women

Unfortunately, learning about “why some women don’t choose to wear it” – or more pointedly, what happens to women in certain Muslim countries and societies who have no choice whether or not to wear it — was not part of the program. Muslim human rights activist Asra Nomani pleads, “Do not wear a headscarf in ‘solidarity’ with the ideology that most silences us.” School officials in Rochester, New York are getting flak from angry parents and teachers for holding an event in solidarity with World Hijab Day. The event, held at the school and during school hours, encouraged the high school girls to wear the Islamic headscarf for the day. Boys were given carnations to wear in solidarity. Unsuspecting students put on the 150 headscarves that were brought by teachers before the first bell rang. They were encouraged to participate in the “cultural event” by the school’s principal Sheela […] Read More

We betray our children by making them afraid to fail

West Point, the training academy for aspiring army officers in the United States, is regarded as one of the most formidable educational institutions in the world. The opening weeks of training are deliberately tough. There are physical and psychological challenges, including gruelling marches carrying heavy weights, and batteries of tests of reasoning and intellect. Many find the going so tough that they drop out. The military has long regarded these opening weeks as a way of separating the best from the rest. Indeed, it has a scientific measure of potential, called the Whole Candidate Score, which measures physical prowess and intelligence through SAT tests. These, plus other ingredients of talent, help to predict which recruits are likely to progress. Importance of failure: why Olympians and A-level students all need to fail Read more But in 2004, Angela Lee Duckworth, a psychologist, whether she could measure something called the “grit” […] Read More

Sugar Babies: More and More College Students Are Literally Becoming Whores to Cover Rising Tuition Costs

While some call prostitution the oldest profession, its getting a high tech, modern boost due to rising college tuition costs (no street corners involved). More students these days are turning to so-called “sugar baby/sugar daddy” websites to get hooked up with older, rich “generous sponsors” to “help” them graduate college debt-free. One of the largest Sugar Daddy/Baby sites, Seeking Arrangement, tagline: “Where beautiful, successful people fuel mutually beneficial relationships,” claims that more than one million college students have joined “for their Sugar Baby Scholarship”. (Ew. I mean, come on, are they just trying to sound lecherous?) In an interview with Sky News, Brandon Wade, the founder of SeekingArrangement.com denied it was an escort site but that it enabled “sugar babies” to “upgrade their lifestyle”. He said sex was never expected, but it is aspired to and that the website had led to countless marriages worldwide. “You want to find […] Read More

Public School Students Are the New Inmates in the American Police State

“Every day in communities across the United States, children and adolescents spend the majority of their waking hours in schools that have increasingly come to resemble places of detention more than places of learning. From metal detectors to drug tests, from increased policing to all-seeing electronic surveillance, the public schools of the twenty-first century reflect a society that has become fixated on crime, security and violence.”—Investigative journalist Annette Fuentes In the American police state, you’re either a prisoner (shackled, controlled, monitored, ordered about, limited in what you can do and say, your life not your own) or a prison bureaucrat (police officer, judge, jailer, spy, profiteer, etc.). Indeed, at a time when we are all viewed as suspects, there are so many ways in which a person can be branded a criminal for violating any number of laws, regulations or policies. Even if you haven’t knowingly violated any laws, […] Read More

Why Even Progressive Democrats Fall for ‘Accountability’ and Phony Education Reform

A congressman calls out his colleagues on education policy. Progressive Democrats are right to hail the new populism in their party driving the debate about the nation’s economic policies and the atrocious inequality those policies have created. Heartened by the bold leadership of Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren and the huge crowds cheering on the presidential campaign of Bernie Sanders, progressives can truly feel their agenda is driving the national debate and propelling change. So it’s beyond disappointing when progressive leaders in the Democratic Party who can knock an argument for economic populism out of the park continue to whiff on education populism. Currently, the House and Senate are in the process of rewriting No Child Left Behind — the federal law that started enforced testing and harsh punishments in public schools. Both versions that have passed in their respective chambers allow for states to end current accountability measures enforced […] Read More

How the Billionaire Kingpins of School Privatization Got Stopped in Their Own Back Yard

A unique coalition in Little Rock, Arkansas is pushing back hard on a Walton Family-funded attempt at a charter takeover. The debate over public schools in Arkansas has been, for decades, ongoing and often fraught. In 1957, the Arkansas school year began with white mobs viciously attacking nine black teenagers as they attempted to desegregate Little Rock’s Central High following Brown vs. Board of Education, shining a national spotlight on the state and forcing President Eisenhower to send in the 101st Airborne Division. This past January, nearly 60 years after Arkansas’ first desegregation efforts, the state board of education dissolved Little Rock’s democratically elected local school board, the most racially inclusive and representative of its majority-black constituency in nearly a decade. In making the decision, the state overruled widespread public outcry to take control of the largest school district in the state. Two months later, Walton Family Foundation-backed lobbyists launched a brazen legislative […] Read More

High School Begins ‘Random’ Drug Testing of Students

Students at Crivitz High School will face drug tests throughout the new school year. Administrators say that the tests will be carried out at “random” but many suspect that particular students will be targeted, based on their appearances, while others will be left alone. “The last couple years, I’ve noticed here in the high school we’ve started to get a growing drug problem, I think we’ve always kind of had a drug problem here in Marinette County,” Crivitz High School Athletic Director, Jeff Dorschner said. “More or less, identifying the problem, getting the parents involved, getting our counselors involved and providing a way for students to get back on the right track,” Dorschner added. Normally, the school would be prohibited from these sorts of “random” drug tests, without probable cause. But the administrators found a loophole. Those involved in extracurricular activities, and anyone with a parking pass on the […] Read More
