Echoes of WWI: China, the US, and the Next "Great" War - corbettreport


Published on Sep 22, 2017SHOW NOTES AND MP3: https://www.corbettreport.com/?p=24001

In the early 20th century, the world’s dominant superpower looked warily on the rise of a competitor to its supremacy. The machinations of the British to contain the rise of Germany led inexorably to the First World War. Once again in the early 21st century, the world’s dominant superpower is looking warily on the rise of a competitor. Will the American Empire’s machinations to contain the rise of China lead to the Third World War? Or is the American/Chinese conflict another engineered conflict for the benefit of the few at the expense of the many? Join James Corbett as he presents "Echoes of World War I" to the Open Mind Conference in Copenhagen, Denmark.

HUNDREDS OF UNIVERSITIES HAVE HELPED DHS CREATE A NATION OF FEAR

Ever wonder who's responsible for our daily dosage of fear, terror and crime?

Look no further than our colleges and universities.

According to DHS, 'Homeland Security Centers of Excellence' (COE) are 'led by a college or university'.

COE's are responsible for blacklists, countering violent extremism and DHS propaganda videos and literature.

Colleges and universities have been working with DHS for fifteen years.

Since 2002, when the Homeland Security Act was passed, numerous colleges and universities have been feeding from the DHS money trough. Each year they line up like good little Bundists, promoting DHS's vision of terror.

Think about that, everything you've been told about terrorism and extremism is coming from colleges!

Schools across America will do anything, even if that means working with DHS, so they can get a piece of the annual $35-$40 million pie.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Absoflippinglutely unbelievable, but perfectly predictable at this moment in the 21st century in the Occupied, Unhinged, Surveilled States of Amerika.

MORE THAN 40 FAMILIES PULL CHILDREN FROM SCHOOL THAT FORCED TRANSGENDER LESSON ON 5-YEAR-OLDS

Forty-one families have pulled 73 children from the elite Sacramento-area Rocklin Academy charter schools as the board continues to defend a kindergarten transgender lesson several parents say traumatized their 5-year-olds and that parents weren’t told about beforehand.

A mother who pulled her son from Grade 6 and daughter from Grade 3 at Rocklin Academy Gateway, where the incident took place, has kept a tally of parents who’ve done likewise.

“It was just the tipping point for most families,” the parent, who asked her name not be published, told LifeSiteNews.

Some parents pulled their kids “solely for this,” while other had “multiple reasons, but yes, this was part of everyone’s reason,” she said.

The controversy erupted after a lesson in which the boy appeared in girl’s clothes and was reintroduced to his kindergarten classmates as a girl.

Teacher Kaelin Swaney also read the pro-transgender “I am Jazz” during the lesson, which took place just before summer vacation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

While the issue of transgender is very real, and all of God's children need to be treated with love, respect and compassion, it is still relatively rare.

People who identify as transgender in this country are +/-
o.6 percent of the population

I can understand that a 5 year old could be very confused, and emotionally traumatized, by such information; and on top of that, parents should have had the right to know that this was going on in advance of any kind of a classroom session on this kind of material, to make the decision as to whether they want their child exposed to this or not, at such a young age.

Swaney and the board massively overstepped here.

High Education: Michigan University To Offer ‘Weed-Growing’ Course

The Northern Michigan University (NMU) will be the first college in the US to prepare students for work in the country’s burgeoning medical marijuana industry.

Medicinal marijuana is big business in the US, with nearly half of the states having legalized the production and sale of the plant for medicinal purposes. In eight states marijuana is legal for both medicinal and recreational uses.

Elementary Students Forced To Recite Gender Neutral ‘Declaration Of Independence’

Students at an elementary school in Mesa, Arizona, were forced to recite a “gender neutral” revision of the Declaration of Independence, local news reports.

The mother of a Salk Elementary School fourth grade student complained to administrators after learning her child’s teacher transformed the historic document to substitute the word “human” in areas where the Founding Fathers wrote “man.”

In her edited version of the historical document, the text reads 'all humans are created equal' and 'Governments are instituted under humans,' with 'humans' replacing the word 'men' on both instances.

Compsci degrees aren't returning on investment for coders – research

University in the UK has never been more expensive. But at least doing a computer science degree guarantees a nice fat, well-paid job at the end, right? Wrong.

Coders with a bachelor's degree only earn £3,000 more a year than those who don't have one, according to a survey of 4,700 developers in the UK by Stack Overflow, a community site frequented by developers for answers to technical questions.

This is despite the average degree now costing £9,000 a year in tuition fees alone. Average student debt is now more than £50,000, according the Institute of Fiscal Studies.

The research found that the median salary of those who did not have higher education was £35,000 per year, while those who gained a bachelor's degree earned £38,000 and postgraduates took home £42,000.

Professors told to report students who make campus ‘less inclusive’ to Behavior Assessment Team

As colleges across the country struggle with questions related to free speech on campuses, some schools have implemented policies that appear to give administrators significant latitude to discipline students for speaking in unpopular ways.

Most recently, the dean’s office of Utah Valley University, a public institution located in the north-central part of Utah, distributed a guidance letter to all faculty encouraging them to report to the school’s Behavior Assessment Team any students who use “inappropriate language,” are “argumentative,” or who speak “loudly.”

The Senate’s Military Spending Increase Alone Is Enough to Make Public College Free

One of the most controversial proposals put forward by Sen. Bernie Sanders during the 2016 presidential campaign was a pledge to make tuition free at public colleges and universities. Critics from both parties howled that the pie-in-the-sky idea would bankrupt the country. Where, after all, would the money come from?

Those concerns were brushed aside Monday night, as the Senate overwhelmingly approved an $80 billion annual increase in military spending>>>

America's dirtiest, biggest student lender neutralized by federal watchdog

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, founded by Elizabeth Warren prior to her career as a senator, has entered into an unprecedented settlement with National Collegiate Student Loan Trusts, the largest holder of student debt in the country.
***
The Trusts are accused of widescale financial fraud, collecting on debts that they didn't own, or that had expired, using "deceptive or unfair means" and flooding the country's courts with bogus lawsuits.

The Trusts originally held more than $12B in debt, but $5B has already been lost to default. Trust bondholders will not receive any payments while the audit is underway. People whose debts are found to be invalid will not owe anything, and will not face tax penalties for "debt forgiveness." All wage garnishment and bank balance seizures will be suspended during the audit as well.

The settlement still awaits judicial approval.>>>

STILL ROTTEN TO THE (COMMON) CORE: “INSPIRATIONAL ROBOTS”

A few years ago, when Gary Lawrence and I wrote Rotten to the (Common) Core, two of our chief concerns about the whole program were (1) the possibility that the ultimate goal was to replace human teachers in the classroom with robots (a goal not, of course, ever stated explicitly), and (2) that the "individually-adapted computerized standardized tests" being touted for the program were not only building on the faulty foundations of the standardized test to begin with, but that the ultimate goal was to expand the surveillance state thereby, and possibly, to use technology for further mind manipulation and social engineering. To this we added a third concern, namely, that teachers would end up being nothing but classroom "proctors" and "robot maintenance" technicians.

Well, this article shared by Ms. M.W. seems to indicate that these fears might have been justified:

Enrollment drops at schools known for ‘social justice warfare’

Universities known for being hotbeds of campus protest and liberal activism are struggling with declining enrollments and budget shortfalls, and higher education analysts say that’s no coincidence.

Take Oberlin College. According to a document leaked to The Oberlin Review, the school’s student newspaper, the small liberal arts college famous for social justice hoaxes has had trouble attracting and retaining students, missing this year’s enrollment mark by 80 and racking up a $5 million budget deficit in the process.

William A. Jacobson, a professor at Cornell Law School who runs the Legal Insurrection blog, said the “most obvious culprit” in Oberlin’s dwindling admissions is “relentless social justice warfare.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why in the name of sam hill did social justice get conflated with "social warfare"?!?

Whatever happened to peaceful ways to achieve social justice?!? Did they just go out with the Whoopie cushion and the dribble glass?!?

WHY ARE US UNIVERSITIES ARMING THEMSELVES WITH GRENADE LAUNCHERS?

A program that supplies university police with surplus military equipment is enjoying a renaissance under Trump and Sessions. Most of the military gear is going to campuses in states with the highest poverty rates, where the weapons will be used not only to repress student protests but also to perpetuate racial and class divides between campuses and their surrounding communities.

Sending an ominous signal to student protest movements nationwide, universities across the US are once again able to equip their police forces with castoff military gear, tying them ever more intimately into the military-industrial complex.

In August, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced at a Fraternal Order of Police convention that Program 1033 would resume providing ex-military equipment to police organizations, including university police departments.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

ARE YOU FLIPPING KIDDING ME?!?

It appears to me that this militarisation of college and university policing is to "boil the frog slowly", in terms of getting students to accept that this is precisely what policing on campus - and in the rest of their lives - should be; that even the smallest of incidents needs to be met with brutal, overwhelming force.

And to all students and the parents and friends who love them, and happen to read this blog, "1984" was not an instruction manual!!</em>

CHILDREN HELD HOSTAGE DURING DISTURBING 9/11 DRILL BY SCHOOL OFFICIAL THREATENING TO KILL THEM

Honolulu, HI — In America’s modern-day police state, it seems the state knows no bounds as to how far it will go to keep children and adults in a perpetual state of fear. A recent lawsuit out of Hawaii illustrates the extent of the American fear culture and how its insanity is tormenting and traumatizing America’s youth.

For more than 10 minutes, middle school children were held hostage by a raging lunatic in a mask, swinging a hammer while threatening to kill them all. Naturally, officials claim this drill, involving a school official wearing a mask and holding a hammer while threatening to kill children, was done for the “safety of those children.” Well, Michelle and Eddie Chavez aren’t buying that excuse.

According to a report from Courthouse News, the couple has since filed a federal lawsuit over this incident.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Whoever engineered this lockdown drill should be sacked; unfortunately, because of a hyper-robust union culture here on Oahu, that probably won't happen until pigs fly.

But think about it; what these drills do is inculcate is a culture of fear and helplessness into children.

This is precisely the kind of dumbed-down, fearful, follow-orders, no thinking for yourself, mentality that those in the Bowels of Power in the Unhinged, Surveilled, States of Amerika wish to "educate" our children to become; as adults, it makes them more easily controlled by sophisticated propaganda, and more easily "sold" on things like wars, and austerity, so that those in the Bowels of Power can pursue their agenda with impunity.

FORMER CITI CEO PANDIT SAYS AI WILL REPLACE 30 PERCENT OF BANKING JOBS WITHIN 5 YEARS

Banks have already started to roll out automated systems.

While Vikram Pandit’s prediction is bad news for back-office employees, banks have already begun to use AI and machine learning in a big way.

From stock picking quants such as those currently under development by iBankCoin (to be rolled out in Exodus), to “robo-advisors” which handle client portfolios deemed too small to justify a costly human broker, to high frequency trading (HFT) algos, to intelligent fraud detection systems which detect and adapt to fraudulent behavior – banks are becoming increasingly reliant on automated systems.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The short answer is, the recent law school grad with $150,000 in debt cannot compete.

College counselors need to be looking at future job trends for at least 20 years into the future, in terms of guiding students toward careers that will actually exist when they graduate, and that is just the hard truth.

British Teachers Too Scared To Teach About 9/11 Attacks

Some UK teachers are too frightened — too frightened — to discuss 9/11 with their students because they fear a backlash from Muslim students and parents, says a counter-extremism education expert.

The UK Telegraph reports that Kamal Hanif, executive principal of Waverley Education Foundation and advisor to the Department for Education on combating counter-extremism in schools, said that some teachers — particularly those with a high proportion of Muslim students — see the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks as a risky topic for classroom discussion.

9-11 Research: An Attempt to Uncover the Truth About September 11th, 2001

We all know the official story of September 11th: four jetliners were hijacked by groups of four and five Arabic men armed with box cutters, who proceeded to fly three of the four jets into the Twin Towers and the Pentagon. Subsequently the World Trade Center Towers, weakened by the impacts and fires, collapsed into piles of rubble. The FBI had compiled a list of hijackers within three days, and it was so obvious that Osama bin Laden had masterminded the operation from caves in Afghanistan, that there was no need to seriously investigate the crime or produce evidence. The "retaliatory" attack on the Taliban would soon commence.

“One of the sayings in our country is Ubuntu – the essence of being human. Ubuntu speaks particularly about the fact that you can't exist as a human being in isolation. It speaks about our interconnectedness. You can't be human all by yourself, and when you have this quality – Ubuntu – you are known for your generosity. We think of ourselves far too frequently as just individuals, separated from one another, whereas you are connected and what you do affects the whole World. When you do well, it spreads out; it is for the whole of humanity.” ~ Desmond Tutu, 2008

Democratic Rep. to introduce bill limiting free speech at universities

U.S. Rep. Anthony Brown (D-Md.) announced he will introduce a bill to limit free speech or “hate speech” at universities and colleges and force the schools to report hate crimes to local law enforcement.

His logic behind the bill is to require universities to demonstrate they have programs in place that will define for students “what is acceptable speech and what is not acceptable speech.” Brown said funding will be set aside in a grant for institutions unable to secure the resources to create the programs.

Trump education secretary Betsy DeVos tears up Obama's rules on campus sex assault investigations, saying 'falsely accused' need protected too

Dev Vos offered a lengthy critique of how the Obama administration had ordered campuses to enforce Title IX legislation, saying it had failed to offer justice.

'Schools have been compelled by Washington to enforce ambiguous and incredibly broad definitions of assault and harassment,' she said.

' Too many cases have involved students or faculty who have been punished for speaking their minds or teaching their classes.

'Any perceived offense can become a fully-blown Title IX investigation - but if everything is harassment thing nothing is.'

No, of course not. This value is about getting your child to think globally, preparing your child to accept a global citizenship.

Document Surfaces Showing CIA’s Plans to Infiltrate Academia & Change University/College Curriculums

There’s no doubt about it: three letter agencies like the NSA, FBI and CIA and the ones we don’t yet know about are full of great people who want nothing but the best for their fellow human beings. People join these agencies because they have good hearts, and want to see the world thrive in a state of peace, equality, abundance and freedom. That being said, the “disastrous rise of misplaced power” to which President Eisenhower referred when referencing the military industrial complex, has taken a hold of these agencies, which now comprise what’s known as the Deep State. The Deep State is a covert network of powerful and influential people who continue to manipulate, lie, and deceive the public for their own interests.

DOCUMENT SURFACES SHOWING CIA’S PLANS TO INFILTRATE ACADEMIA & CHANGE UNIVERSITY/COLLEGE CURRICULUM

The “disastrous rise of misplaced power” to which President Eisenhower referred when referencing the military industrial complex, has taken a hold of these agencies, which now comprise what’s known as the Deep State. The Deep State is a covert network of powerful and influential people who continue to manipulate, lie, and deceive the public for their own interests.

Oh, by the way, it’s safe to assume that the Deep State also includes, as mentioned above, the agencies we don’t yet know about. We know this from looking at history: The National Security Agency (NSA) was founded in 1952, its existence was hidden until the mid 1960s; Another great example is the National Reconnaissance Office, which was founded in 1960 but remained completely secret for three decades.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why am I not surprised at this move?!?

I would not be surprised to have seen US alphabet soup agencies in major acts of radically revising textbooks on journalism to show the consequences of "bad journalistic decisions" in actually tell the truth, when the truth damaged the Deep State narrative to the point of collapsing it all together. And whether these examples were true, or not, really didn't matter. Remember that prophetic statement from George Orwell's "1984":

"Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past."

So, because of my Christian Pacifist Activist stance (meaning: I am constantly exhorting my government to resolve its geopolitical issues with moral, win/win negotiations rather than through wars), my critical thinking capabilities and my insistence on logical answers which benefit We the People, I, and people like me, are now "the principal villains" to my government?!?

If, in fact this is true, the Unhinged, Surveilled States of Amerika are moving in a terribly dystopian, and dark, direction, and I fear greatly for those children who are growing up in this "new normal".

Martin Luther King Jr. – The Power of Non-violence

As an astute observer of history I can’t help but recognize that there is a pattern playing out again before our very eyes that we have seen before. A series of events that seam to be pushing the country ever further apart. This pattern is one of division and control. As I have said many times on my radio broadcast, the most effective way to bring this country down is to rip it apart from the inside. To have it tear itself apart piece by piece via the citizens themselves. It is for this reason I have taken part of an interview Martin Luther King Jr. did as well as parts from two speeches he gave and put them together so you can all hear from Reverend King himself about the power of non-violence in activism. His words echo through time from the 1960s straight through to today. We would all be wise to pay heed to what Reverend King had to say.

Adulting and the Dumbing Down of the American Grown Up

Waking Times

The term ‘arrested development’ comes to mind when pondering the all too often ludicrous behavior of modern adults. It is used to describe people who are stuck in a childlike level of psychological development, unable to grow beyond the behaviors, attitudes and dependencies that mark the pre-adulthood stage of life. Something is holding them back, or something is preventing them from moving forward.

People are paying almost $150K for a master’s degree in journalism, just to write fake news for the mainstream media

Would you pay nearly $150,000 for a degree that can get you a job with a median yearly salary of less than $40,000 in an industry that is currently experiencing a high degree of layoffs? If so, Columbia University’s School of Journalism will gladly sign you up for its new Master of Science in Data Journalism program.

The school charges $106,000 for the tuition and other fees related to the degree and $41,232 for living expenses. The notion is drawing mockery from established journalists like Chicago Tribune editor Charlie J. Johnson, who tweeted that “A $100,000 master’s degree in journalism is a stupid thing.”

Newsletter on UCCS: 'Veterans should be banned from four-year universities'

The university explained while this group is not affiliated with the college, they say it is free speech and the group can post what they want.

The article says veterans should be banned from UCCS and other four-year colleges. It also generalizes veterans and says they are unsympathetic to the LGBTQ community. The article says all veterans have far right-wing ideologies.

"They [the authors of the letter] try and talk about inclusion as a principle," said UCCS student Joe Hollmann. "Yet, they're excluding one of the most important members of society, those that are guarding our freedom to even talk about this."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

ARE YOU FLIPPING KIDDING ME?!?

This is just one of the most misconceived concepts in a long history of misconceived concepts; to deny an education to Veterans because of some assessment, created by magical thinking, they are all right wingers, so have no right to an education at this school?!?

Where is the logic, here?!? Has anyone actually come up with a standards and means test to determine what former military think, to make that determination?!? And please, aren't we all Americans, even if we think differently about political issues?!? And that to me, coupled with the First Amendment restrictions and educational restrictions someone at this school, or may have attended this school, want to force on their community.

Outrage Builds Over Grade-Manipulation Scandal In Baltimore School System

Earlier this month, ‘Project Baltimore’, an investigative reporting initiative, which was launched in March 2017, by Sinclair Broadcast Group Inc. uncovered a Baltimore City school with zero students proficient in math and the highest graduation rate in the area.

The school in focus is Northwood Appold Community Academy II, or NACA II, after teachers contacted Project Baltimore saying grades were being change so students can graduate.

OUTRAGE BUILDS OVER GRADE-MANIPULATION SCANDAL IN BALTIMORE SCHOOL SYSTEM

Earlier this month, ‘Project Baltimore’, an investigative reporting initiative, which was launched in March 2017, by Sinclair Broadcast Group Inc. uncovered a Baltimore City school with zero students proficient in math and the highest graduation rate in the area.

The school in focus is Northwood Appold Community Academy II, or NACA II, after teachers contacted Project Baltimore saying grades were being change so students can graduate.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There are many, horrific examples of abuse of children; but such abuse, intellectually, is visited on more poor and minority students as their alleged "education" in low income areas.

If any kid is NOT being prepared for achieving intellectually, academically, and in real life goals, this is a travesty against that child's future, and the highest possible outcomes for that child scream drug dealer; gang member; and thoroughly addicted adult. Not pretty. are they?!?

The film "Stand and Deliver", was based on a real-life situation with a teacher in the LA area who refused to take failure on the part of his math class to be the norm. So what he did was prepare them to complete in a state level math challenge, which they won, handily. But the School Boards accused them of cheating, so he went back, prepared them again, and they again won-handily.

And why?!? Because this teacher saw potential and giftedness in these kids where others saw them as complete failures, barely graduating high school, and getting them from high school to either social services, or juvenile hall, which were, in their minds, the only outcome for these kids; and that so absolutely was not true.

One of the things we have to do in this country, if we want to grow as a nation, is that all parents, working in tandem with schools, need to participate in the child's,and the school's, life. Be there for the open houses; make time for the PTA meetings, and look your kid's teacher in the eye, and say, "I'm here to help; what can I do, please, in looking over my kids' shoulder at their homework"?!?

The number-one mind-control program at US colleges

Here is a staggering statistic (note: Thank you to reader “Namely Liberty” for surfacing this information from the WayBackMachine) from the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI): “More than 25 percent of college students have been diagnosed or treated by a professional for a mental health condition within the past year.”

Let that sink in. 25 percent.

Colleges are basically clinics. Psychiatric centers.

Colleges have been taken over. A soft coup has occurred, out of view.

You want to know where all this victim-oriented “I’m triggered” and “I need a safe space” comes from? You just found it.

It’s a short step from being diagnosed with a mental disorder to adopting the role of being super-sensitive to “triggers.” You could call it a self-fulfilling prophecy. “If I have a mental disorder, then I’m a victim, and then what people say and do around me is going disturb me…and I’ll prove it.”

DSA backs boycott as campuses fight Israel’s censorship

A recent vote by the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) overwhelmingly endorsed the 2005 Palestinian call for boycott, divestment and sanctions on Israel.

At the DSA’s annual convention in Chicago on 5 August, the organization resolved to respond to Palestinian civil society’s call by “fully supporting BDS,” as well as affirming that “any political solution to the ongoing crisis must be premised on the realization of basic human rights, including all rights outlined in the BDS call.”

“It was important to me to see that [the resolution] was very unwavering in saying that it is apartheid; this is our support against an anti-colonial struggle,” Rawan Tayoon, a Palestinian activist with Young Democratic Socialists, told The Electronic Intifada Podcast.

Baltimore School With Zero Students Proficient In Math Has Highest Graduation Rate

Baltimore’s community is absolutely stunned after ‘Project Baltimore’, an investigative reporting initiative, which was launched in March 2017, by Sinclair Broadcast Group Inc. asked this question: How can a high school with zero students proficient in math, have one of the highest graduation rates in Baltimore City?

Project Baltimore is investigating Northwood Appold Community Academy II, or NACA II, after teachers “contacted us saying grades are being changed so students can graduate”. The school is located in East Baltimore City, Maryland where nearly 1/3 of African Americans have zero net wealth.

The identities of the teachers who contacted Project Baltimore have been masked because they fear retaliation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Absoflippinglutely unbelievable!

Those teachers who changed the grades, to allow kids who, at the end of day, learned utterly nothing, but were allowed to graduate, as though graduation was a "participation trophy", should be sacked immediately, and barred from teaching for the rest of their lives.

Devastating Toll of Hunger on US School Children

Hunger is a growing problem for US children and increasingly affects their performance in school, making it more difficult for them to focus on their classes or do homework. It also contributes to behavior and discipline problems.

This was the finding of a report issued last week by the anti-hunger charity Share Our Strength, based on a survey of 500 low-income parents and their teenage children in public schools. Some 325 teachers were also interviewed. “Low-income” was defined as at or below 185 percent of the official poverty line, or $45,417 a year for a family of four.

Among children in low-income families, 59 percent said they had gone to school hungry. In the richest country in the world, with the largest concentration of billionaires, one in six children faces hunger, some 13 million in all.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is so horrifically, morally wrong on so many levels, I hardly know where to speak. And yet, local and national politicians seem pathologically impotent to fix the problem.

Kids need proper nutrition to be able to learn; that's just a science fact.

IF you can find a food bank program in your communities, please volunteer food, time, and money, if you can; where we can help people out always comes back a thousandfold to you.

HOMESCHOOLED STUDENTS STILL FACE BIAS IN COLLEGE ADMISSIONS, EVEN WHEN THEY MEET REQUIREMENTS

Even as many colleges have taken to recruiting homeschooled students because they tend to outperform their public-school counterparts, homeschoolers still face discrimination in postsecondary education.

As evidenced by a recent case handled by the Home School Legal Defense Association, cosmetology schools are a surprising locus of bias against the homeschooled clients of the association’s attorneys.

It’s a sweeping change from HSLDA’s work during the Clinton administration, when colleges of all kinds routinely denied admission to applicants whose parents personally instructed their education, staff attorney Darren Jones told The College Fix in a phone interview.

Yet even as the frequency and severity of cases has subsided, one enormous university system has stubbornly resisted the trend of colleges treating homeschool students on an equal footing.

Three years of college, ignored

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is completely insane, and must be fixed, state by state, because the Federal Government doesn't want this bias against home-schooled students fixed.

The Federal Government wants "manageable" students, hooked on SSRIS and God only knows what ever other kinds of prescription drugs,who will never fully understand the lessons of history; understand logic; and never use critical thinking to attempt to evaluate and repair what is going wrong in this country.

Smartphones and Social Media Causing Mental Health Disaster with Children

Even when a seismic event—a war, a technological leap, a free concert in the mud—plays an outsize role in shaping a group of young people, no single factor ever defines a generation. Parenting styles continue to change, as do school curricula and culture, and these things matter. But the twin rise of the smartphone and social media has caused an earthquake of a magnitude we’ve not seen in a very long time, if ever. There is compelling evidence that the devices we’ve placed in young people’s hands are having profound effects on their lives—and making them seriously unhappy.

UPDATE: Not Being Stupid Is ‘Cognitive Privilege’ Now, Which Is Just Like White Privilege

The University of Iowa’s student newspaper has announced the discovery of a special privilege which intelligent people acquire as an accident of birth. This new privilege — called “cognitive privilege” — functions in essentially the same way as white privilege.

The Daily Iowan revealed the discovery of this new privilege earlier this week.

Garden-variety white privilege “is an important topic that deserves a public discussion,” the op-ed on “cognitive privilege” explains, but it is also “prudent to at least mention the wider concept contained therein: that of privilege itself.” (RELATED: Smoking Marijuana And Not Getting Killed By Cops Is WHITE PRIVILEGE Now)

Privilege in general is “the receipt of certain benefits wholly through accident of birth and it is “undeniable that privilege itself is a reality,” the student newspaper explains.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Are you flipping kidding me?!?

And hasn't "Common Core" been dumbing our kids down so brilliantly, as to nearly prevent this from happening?!?

Being bright should not be considered any kind of privilege; it should be considered both a gift, and a motivation, for making the best life for yourself you possibly can, because you are making good choices that will serve you well later in life.

The real reason so many millennials still live with their parents

Recently, a U.S. Census report confirmed something many millennials like me know all too well: As of 2015, one-third of 18- to 34-year-olds still lived at home—beating out all other living arrangements, including cohabitating with a partner or living alone, for the first time.

Older generations like to attribute this to laziness or entitlement, saying we lack ambition or are coddled by our parents—but that’s a clouded argument. There are some lazy kids in every generation, but a third of us? Sorry, but no.

As a millennial who’s in this category, I’m setting the record straight on the real reasons we’re still living at home.

We’re shouldering serious student loans.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

To all parents out there whose kids are juniors in high school this fall; please seriously talk with your kids about what jobs which pay well without a college education.

The debt trap in which so many millennials live, thanks to that college education, and the debt burden it brings, is avoidable, but they are going to have to think their way around believing that a college education is "the only way" to get a decent job.

High paying jobs you can get without a college degree

Best jobs you can get without a college degree

17 jobs that don’t require a college degree and pay over $70,000 a year

The old model of a college degree being the only way to get higher paying jobs doesn't make sense in this part of the 21st century. And there are respected on-line colleges which allow you to take college at your own pace, and can either enhance your chances of promotion at work, or give you the classical education you have wanted, whether it enhances your upward financial mobility or not.

But before kids think about college, and until there is universal, free higher education in this country (a number of enlightened countries in Europe have been doing this for decades), they need to ask themselves; is this the only way to a good-paying career?!? And if they check out their options, they will see that this is absolutely not the case.

Ivy League Reputation Damaged? Harvard Professors Publish 'Fake News' on Russia

Harvard's reputation as one of the most prestigious universities doesn't seem to prevent its faculty members from spreading false information when it comes to Russia. Just recently, two Harvard professors posted blatantly unreliable statements about Russia on their Twitter accounts, which were immediately retweeted and reposted on social networks.

The fact that neither of the scientists deleted the messages containing false information even after they received feedback from their followers pointing at their mistakes shows that when it comes to any assessments and statements about Russia, information is rarely checked before making headlines.

The Failed MMR Vaccine Policies on College Campuses

By Michelle Goldstein

Most states have enacted laws requiring college students to obtain the MMR vaccine in order to attend their universities. This vaccine allegedly offers protection against the diseases measles, mumps and rubella. The effectiveness of Merck’s MMR vaccine against mumps has been questioned by many scientists.

Meanwhile, the past five years have witnessed skyrocketing increases of mumps outbreaks across college campuses, among those students vaccinated, providing further evidence of the MMR vaccine’s failure...

Florida’s Education System—The One Betsy DeVos Cites As A Model—Is In Chaos

The K-12 education system in Florida — the one that Education Secretary Betsy DeVos likes to praise as a model for the nation — is in chaos.

Traditional public school districts are trying to absorb the loss of millions of dollars for the new school year that starts within weeks. That money, which comes from local property taxes, is used for capital funding but now must be shared with charter schools as a result of a widely criticized $419 million K-12 public education bill crafted by Republican legislative leaders in secret and recently signed into law by Gov. Rick Scott — at a Catholic school.

How Schooling Crushes Creativity

In 2006, educator and author Ken Robinson gave a TED Talk called, “Do Schools Kill Creativity?” At over 45 million views, it remains the most viewed talk in TED’s history.

Robinson’s premise is simple: our current education system strips young people of their natural creativity and curiosity by shaping them into a one-dimensional academic mold. This mold may work for some of us, particularly, as he states, if we want to become university professors; but for many of us, our innate abilities and sprouting passions are at best ignored and at worst destroyed by modern schooling.

In his TED Talk, Robinson concludes:

SCAM WARNING: Website is tricking students out of thousands in fees

Newcastle University has put out an alert over a website calling itself “Newcastle International University” which has copied its branding, colours and fonts as well as animation, blogs and photos as well as details of dozens of courses.

The site appears to target unsuspecting students to hand over online their course fees as one section allows people to apply and pay for courses with requests for their personal information and passport and bank details.

The warning from the real Newcastle University said: "We have been made aware of an unofficial website which is fraudulently using the Newcastle University brand and accepting credit card payments to apply for courses.

"The website 'newcastle international university' is in no way associated with the University and we are advising anyone who finds the website not to submit any personal details. All students should use our official website http://www.ncl.ac.uk/."

Ramses II was King Solomon

Very few equivalences in ancient times are so certain as the equivalence of Ramses II with King Solomon. Indeed, no mainstream scholar has been able to present even the most minimal requisite evidence necessary to rebut my challenge to current chronology as posted at https://listhost.uchicago.edu/pipermail/ane/2003-July/009941.html

Egyptologists, Oriental and Biblical scholars do not like to be confronted with facts - rather, they continue to build their nice little houses of cards as if facts contrary to their ill-conceived theories and chronologies simply did not exist. The closed-minded majority of Egyptologists seem to have a limited capacity for critical thinking.

Just how long did Ramses reign? They assume it is 67 years of sole regency, but the evidence is against them.

It is quite clear that Ramses did not rule alone for 67 years but like Solomon only ruled 40 years as a sole regent.
