Florida Teacher In Danger of Losing His Job Because He Uses Medical Marijuana

The board of Marion County Public Schools in Florida has suspended a Belleview High School teacher and student services manager over his use of medical cannabis. Mike Hickman, 50, was placed on unpaid leave after the Superintendent of Schools, Heidi Maier, recommended he be fired for testing positive for cannabinoids in early November 2019. Hickman is a registered cannabis patient under Florida’s 2016 medical cannabis law. And a physician licensed under the state’s program to recommend medical cannabis issued Hickman a recommendation for the treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder, which is an approved condition.

Now, Hickman, a U.S. Marine Corps veteran who served during Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm in the early 1990s, is fighting for his job back—and his livelihood.

7-year-old children left psychologically terrorized after hearing Greta Thunberg speech… “I don’t want to die!”

According to the National Post, the schoolchildren were forced to watch a video of a “carbon clock.” The clock counted down from eight years, suggesting the children have less than a decade to live. The video warned that eight years is “the estimated amount of time it will take to emit enough carbon to warm the world by 1.5 degrees Celsius” – setting off a catastrophic string of events that will cause mass extinction of humans.

Psychologists warn that children are high impressionable at this age. “Children this young are highly impressionable concrete thinkers who interpret what they hear very literally,” says Pediatrician Dr. Michelle Cretella. “Between the ages of 7 and 11, children gradually become able to understand specific examples of cause and effect, but they still struggle with abstract ideas and putting issues in context.”

12 Manners Older Generations Were Taught As Children

They may seem outdated to some, but these are the manners we grew up with. There wasn’t any two ways about it: this was how you were expected to behave, especially when in public. The consequences for talking back or disobeying were often a swift clip of the ears or the behind as these were not negotiable or “sometimes” rules. These manners molded us into the people we are today!

75% Of Registered Voters Can't Identify Iran On A Map

As thousands of American service members prepare for the worst in the Middle East following an American drone strike that killed Iran's second-most powerful man, just 23% of registered voters can identify the Islamic republic on an unlabeled map of the globe, according to a Morning Consult/Politico survey.

When shown an unlabeled map of just the Middle East, the number rose to a still-abysmal 28%. Eight percent of those thought Iran was Iraq on the second map - just like Joe Biden.

Community Schools Are Not the Antidote to Charter Schools

Op-Ed by John Klyczek

Democratic presidential candidates, such as Elizabeth Warren, have pledged to fix the American education system by replacing privatized charter schools with “community schools” that incorporate “socioemotional-learning (SEL)” programs. These “Democratic” community schools, which teach “social skills” and “emotional competencies,” might sound like “liberal” or “leftwing” education reforms. But don’t be fooled by the pathos of such leftist “social justice” rhetoric. The Democrats’ socioemotional community-learning centers are no more “progressive” than corporate-fascist charter schools...

A PRIMER ON “MARTIAL LAW”

No American alive today can believe that the men who wrote the Declaration of Independence, who acted upon it to separate the Colonies from and to conduct a long and sanguinary war against Great Britain, and who upon the strength of the Declaration then enacted constitutions for their States and the United States ever imagined that the powers to behave in the fashion of George III—powers that he had used to bring about “a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object [that] evince[d] a design to reduce [Americans] under absolute Despotism”; and powers the very use of which justified the invocation and exercise of “the[ people’s] right, * * * their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security”—were among the “just powers” that “Governments * * * instituted among Men, deriv[e] * * * from the consent of the governed”.

Some UK universities will be handing out first-class degrees to every one of their students by 2030 if grade inflation continues

Universities minister Chris Skidmore, responding to the findings, said the 'increasing and unexplained' number of first class degrees is 'undermining the faith in our world-leading universities'.

Tom Richmond, who has advised government education ministers and is the director of the EDSK think-tank, said: 'If it becomes a case of 'top prizes for all' then the degree classification could, regrettably, become meaningless.'

VACCINE FAIL: “WHOOPING COUGH OUTBREAK CLOSES TEXAS SCHOOL DESPITE 100-PERCENT VACCINATION RATE: OFFICIALS”

SOURCE: GREEN MED INFO
Despite a 100% vaccination rate, a Texas school closes early for winter break due to a whooping cough outbreak. Clearly the vaccine is failing to work as advertised.

If ever there was convincing proof that vaccination does not equate to bona fide immunity, it is at St. Theresa Catholic School in Texas…

Reported by FoxNews.com on Dec. 19th, the school experienced an outbreak of whooping cough, causing them to close their doors and start their winter break early.

On Dec. 4th, St. Theresa Catholic School in Memorial Park, reported its first case to the Texas Department of State Health Services. Since then, the outbreak has continued to escalate — and not because of the abuse of religious and medical exemptions, and so-called “anti-vaxxer” parents.

According to the FoxNews report, the school vaccine uptake rate was at 100%:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As vaccine failures go, this one was utterly epic.

And we have a companion piece, also at blacklistednews (originally published at sputnik.com), which is no harbinger of vaccine freedom, for any reason;

MIT Develos Tattoo ID, to track who has veen vaccinated.

The article goes on to state; "SOURCE: SPUTNIK NEWS
MIT researchers have struck on a novel, and for many surely unsettling, method of keeping track of who has and hasn’t had a particular vaccination – creating an ink that can be safely embedded in the skin alongside the vaccine itself, and only visible using a special infra-red application.

The invisible “tattoo” is a pattern made up of tiny semiconducting crystals that reflect light and thus glows under infra-red light. The pattern will be delivered alongside the vaccine into the skin via hi-tech dissolvable microneedles made of a mixture of polymers and sugar.

“In areas where paper vaccination cards are often lost or do not exist at all, and electronic databases are unheard of, this technology could enable the rapid and anonymous detection of patient vaccination history to ensure that every child is vaccinated,” MIT researcher Kevin McHugh said in a statement.

Strikingly, the research was funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation – in fact, the project came about following a direct request from the Microsoft founder himself, who has been personally and somewhat controversially involved in efforts to eradicate polio and measles via vaccinations worldwide."

This funding... was no accident. And neither is the reality that getting vaccinated against measles, is not a guarantee that a child will not get measles;
Seven of My Vaccinated Kids Have the Measles Right Now
The article went on to state: "According to Mrs. Pearl, the health department official also told her that measles vaccine failure is common and that about half the people getting measles in the current measles clusters in Brooklyn are fully vaccinated.

Mary Holland, a Harvard-educated lawyer on the faculty at New York University and co-author of two books about vaccines, says she’s not surprised.

While the CDC reports the efficacy rate after two doses of the measles vaccine at 97 percent, some experts, like Holland, believe that number is inflated.

“The measles component of the MMR suffers from primary and secondary failure,” Holland says. “In other words, it simply doesn’t work in some individuals and in other individuals the protection wanes. One size just doesn’t fit all.”

COLLEGES ARE TURNING STUDENTS' PHONES INTO SURVEILLANCE MACHINES, TRACKING THE LOCATIONS OF HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS

SOURCE: SLASH DO

Colleges are tracking students' location to enforce attendance, analyze their behavior and assess their mental health. One company calculates a student's "risk score" based on factors such as whether she is going to the library enough.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Were I a student in this part of the 21st century, when inspecting a college for future attendance, I would ask point blank, if it was an established policy to do such surveillance of their students, without their permission.

If the answer was yes, I would thank the person showing me the campus, and leave, scratching that particular school of higher surveillance off my list, as a place I would want to go.

THIS IS AMERICA: 10 EXAMPLES THAT SHOW HOW DRAMATICALLY THE U.S. HAS CHANGED AS WE APPROACH 2020

SOURCE: MICHAEL SNYDER, GUEST POST
One thing that you can count on in life is that things are going to change. And these days the pace of change in America is absolutely breathtaking. Our culture is in the process of being radically transformed, and the direction of that change has not altered very much at all no matter which political party has been in power in Washington. Many of the values that are now embraced by a solid majority of the population run directly counter to the values that once dominated our society, but only a small minority of Americans seem alarmed by that fact. It appears to be exceedingly unlikely that there will be any deviating from the path that our nation has chosen, because at this point the American people seem quite satisfied with the dramatic “progress” that is taking place.

So what do you think?

Are we on the right track as a nation?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

My short answer to this question about "Are we on the right track as a nation?" would be a resounding "HELL, NO!!!!!!!

And the primary (but governing) reason is the following; pro-peace, national candidates from both parties will never see daylight as President or Vice President, because their pro-peace stances will translate into billions lost by the military industrial complex; so our alleged "choices" for President and Vice President are orchestrated by this lewd tango between the military industrial complex and the US deep state, both of which have nearly never seen a potential war, or potential regime change they didn't just love, no matter the horrific costs to our men and women in uniform.

The paupacity of true education and true understanding in this country, is embarrassingly amazing, but it is done purposely: programs like Common Core, are enabled to keep people from thinking, and using their God-given common sense.

Because when people are numerate; literate; and capable of true critical thinking, that huge ooze of codswallop we are supposed to swallow whole, courtesy of the corporate Presstitutes whose almost every word is dictated by this country's deep state, to support a war-centric agenda, very much falls apart, under even the most casual scrutiny.

This leaves US citizens easily confused, and torn apart to the point where we cannot even talk about political issues without that devolving into a real shouting match, in many families and friendships.

A house divided against itself cannot stand; so while we are distracted by every single, possible distraction, including those provided by our media, and arguing among ourselves, the US Deep State and military industrial complex provides us with enemies du jour, and wars we, of course, MUST fight to "contain (fill in country's name here) that country's alleged "aggression" against us.

So here is the process; regime change any governments not to the US government's liking; install a puppet regime which will enable US-centric multinational companies, to come in and expropriate that country's natural resources, to which this government, and these corporations have no moral right; ; and only sell those resources in US dollars.

Follow the money; follow the resources, and it is pretty easy to see how this happens, and is happening seemingly endlessly, on the part of this government.

What do we need to do to change this?!?

First, we need to have a peaceful, reasonable, and national conversation about these endless wars, and why our military is fighting in them in the first place.

The first of these which comes to my mind, is our governments'partnering in war crimes and the biggest humanitarian disaster in recent history in Yemen, by supporting Saudi Arabia against the Houthi rebels here. Every single rational article I have read about this conflict, indicates that it has to be resolved not by more bullets and bloodshed, but by moral, intelligent, and hard-won negotiations.

So we have to ask our leadership; is there no other way than wars with which to obtain those geopolitical concessions which the US seeks from other countries?!? I am convinced that there is; but there has to be a will in the Bowels of Power in DC, to make that happen, which currently does not exist.

I want to see this country go back to hand-written ballots which cannot be electronically altered.

I want to see a "none of the above" on every Presidential ballot, so ultimately, We the People will have actual choices on candidates, not candidates "pre-digested" by the military industrial complex, and the US Deep State.

And finally, I would like to see an amendment to the Constitution, stipulating that any national candidate who wins the Presidency, Vice-Presidency, or Congressional race, must have their kids enlisting in the military, if they are of appropriate age, and must be trained with combat units most likely to see action on the front lines of whatever war the US government has decided we are fighting.

Now, I understand, as well as a grown person, that such an amendment might only happen when pigs discover that they are aerodynamic; that being said, however, I wouldn't bet against such an Amendment slowing down the US Government's lust for wars, when the people ordering those wars understand that it most probably will be their kids who may well die in the first stages of those wars.

“America the Shrunken”

In May of 2014, Frank Bruni wrote an article for the NYT titled ‘America the Shrunken’, in which he detailed what he called “the downward arc of a diminished enterprise” that was the USA, quoting friends who claimed their children would live in a more impoverished America, that the reign was over and the slide was inevitable. The optimism and the arrogant swagger are mostly gone.

One American commenting on an article in the Wall Street Journal, wrote the following:

How “Dumbed Down” Has America Become? Here Are 30 People That Actually Believe Trump Is No Longer President

I knew that Americans were dumb, but I didn’t think it was this bad. In the hours after President Trump was impeached by the House of Representatives, thousands of people immediately began wildly celebrating on social media because “Trump is not the president anymore”. But of course that is not true at all. Two-thirds of the Senate will have to vote to convict Trump in order to remove him from office, and at this point that seems exceedingly unlikely. Anyone that has received even the most basic education about the U.S. Constitution should know this, so how is it possible that there are vast hordes of people out there that actually believe that Donald Trump is no longer the president of the United States?

Graphic Video: US Resource Officer Fired for Bodyslamming Middle School Boy

An investigation has been launched into a school resource officer following the emergence of surveillance footage which showed the man dragging and slamming a child under the age of 12 to the ground multiple times.

A Vance County Sheriff’s deputy has been fired and an investigation has been launched by the North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation after the officer appeared to literally take a student’s disciplinary matters into his own hands earlier this month.

The footage, which was released publicly on Friday, showed the unidentified resource officer leisurely strolling down the hallway at Vance County Middle School with the student by his side. Seemingly unprovoked, the deputy then picks the boy up and slams him to the ground twice before dragging him down the hallway.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I think that the larger question here which must be answered, is why do such events keep happening in US public schools?!?

Is there a collective "screw loose" in the brains of Resource Officers, that it causes them to snap, and sometimes create extensive injuries for the kids in these schools?!?

Because we are not talking about an "isolated incident"; we are talking about way too many of these events, happening in our public schools, and this violent behaviour on the part of these officers has to stop, and right now.

Teacher Unions Destroy School Accountability

Authored by Robert Fellner via The Mises Institute,

Just months after successfully threatening an illegal strike to obtain a modest salary raise, members of the Clark County, Nevada, teachers union, the Clark County Education Association (CCEA), are going to have to give a big chunk of that back, thanks to a pair of recent rate hikes that will cost the average teacher nearly $1,000 a year.

The union claims that higher taxes and increased spending are the only way to improve Nevada’s public schools but neglects to explain why the near tripling in spending that has already occurred since 1960 has failed to improve student performance.

MÉXICO HAS DISCOVERED THE LARGEST LITHIUM RESERVE IN THE WORLD

TRANSLATED FROM FORBES MÉXICO
Mexico tops the list of the largest lithium deposit in the world , according to the report ranking made by Mining Technology.

The report indicates that the mine of this element located in Sonora is the largest element deposit with proven and probable reserves of 243.8 million tons.

In recent days, members of the Sonora government have met with the Chinese capital mining company Ganfeng Lithium, who are looking to settle and invest in the region.

"They have more than seven thousand employees and are very interested in coming in January, they will come on a commercial mission to Sonora, because they are interested in being here, seeing the possibility of installing and setting up a battery factory," said Jorge Vidal, secretary Sonoran economy.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would completely dismayed, if the scientific elements in this government didn't know about this huge deposit in Sonora, and that the Mexican government is now negotiating with China.

But what if the American government knew full well that this was about to happen, and had a plan to make such a Mexican/Chinese deal....a moot point?!?

Let's look at a map, in terms of the border of Mexico (Sonora, to be exact)
Border; Arizona, United States; Sonora, Mexico

Notice the flurry of headlines we have seen in the past couple of months, about cartel gang violence in Mexico, "spilling over" into the the US?!?
The Sinaloa
Cartel

Mexico: Organized Crime and Drug
Trafficking Organizations

Mexico ambush: How a US Mormon family ended up deadThe article goes on to state that "In time, the Mormon community south of the border grew in number and wealth.

They purchased land in the states of Sonora and Chihuahua and set up ranches and other colonias. They thrived as pecan farmers, grew wheat, planted apple and pomegranate orchards and produced honey to sell at farmers' markets. Although many returned to the southern United States after the Mexican Revolution, by the 1950s the Mormon enclaves had populations in the high hundreds or low thousands."

And notice, right after that, how President Trump was attempting to get Mexican drug cartels designated as "terrorists" ?!?

President Trump wants to label Mexican cartesl as "terrorist organizations"

Even though the Mexican government is bitterly opposed to such a measure, what happens if the US military goes in and "Controls" Sinaloa?!? Would this not mean that the US government also controlled the flow of lithium, in terms of practical production, and insuring that this mineral, would only be sold in the US dollar?!?

The previous moves by the US government remind us of the reality, that President Trump has US soldiers "guarding Syria's oil, and is at least considering having the refining by a US-trusted company"?!?!?

Trump OKs wider Syria oil mission, raising legal questions.

So what about Bolivia's "coup coup ka CHOO!" last month, when President Evo was overthrown, and found sanctuary in Mexico, for at least a while?!? What was his "crime" leading up to the ultra-right Putsch which took power here?

Bolivian Coup Comes Less Than a Week After Morales Stopped Multinational Firm's Lithium Deal

And another salient comment on bolivia's coup:

After Morales Ousted in Coup, the Lithium Question Looms Large in BoliviaThe story goes on to state:

"Last year, Germany’s ACI Systems agreed to a deal with Bolivia. After protests from residents in the Salar de Uyuni region, Morales canceled that deal on November 4, 2019.

Chinese firms—such as TBEA Group and China Machinery Engineering—made a deal with YLB. It was being said that China’s Tianqi Lithium Group, which operates in Argentina, was going to make a deal with YLB. Both Chinese investment and the Bolivian lithium company were experimenting with new ways to both mine the lithium and to share the profits of the lithium. The idea that there might be a new social compact for the lithium was unacceptable to the main transnational mining companies.

Tesla (United States) and Pure Energy Minerals (Canada) both showed great interest in having a direct stake in Bolivian lithium. But they could not make a deal that would take into consideration the parameters set by the Morales government. Morales himself was a direct impediment to the takeover of the lithium fields by the non-Chinese transnational firms. He had to go.

After the coup, Tesla’s stock rose astronomically.

I do not know when President Trump is likely to characterize Mexican cartels (particularly in Sinaloa) in Sinaloa and beyond, as "terrorists; that gives President Trump gets a great more leeway in terms of how he uses our military; but I would suggest that an executive order, putting the wheels in motion for such an action, will not be long in coming.

And in terms of Mexico's "sovereignty"?!?

President Trump will give Mexico's President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, precisely the same consideration as he did with Syria's President, Bashar Al Assad, when he both trained, funded, and provided weapons to Jihadis, whose task it was, to regime-change Syria, and take a great deal of their oil.

Oh, and if this isn't disturbing enough, we find this little "crumpet" of news in blacklistednews.com: US Army will fund rare earths-processing

So I have to wonder; will the first "funding" go soon-to-be US-controlled lithium mines in Mexico?!?

I will nearly bet you one thing; the "timing" of this announcement, is not accidental.

How Dumb Have We Become? Chinese Students Are 4 Grade Levels Ahead Of US Students In Math

Authored by Michael Snyder via The End of The American Dream blog,

How in the world is America supposed to remain “the greatest country on Earth” when other nations are absolutely running circles around us when it comes to education? As you will see below, one survey found that 15-year-old students in China are almost four full grade levels ahead of 15-year-old students in the United States in mathematics. This is one of the most damning indictments of our education system that I have ever come across, and it is yet another clear indication that what we are doing is simply not working. Our children are not being given the tools that they need to compete in our modern society, and we have only ourselves to blame.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One of the biggest burdens on the education system in this country, was the adoption of "Common Core", inflicted on America's schools by Barak Obama in 2009.

And so the "gifts" from this program, just keep on giving; American students are, largely, illiterate; innumerate, and incapable of critical thinking, all of which are desperately needed to function in real life.

New Evidence Shows Common Core Has Been a Total Disaster

How Common Core Is Destroying Training of Teachers

How Common Core And Screen Overdoses Are Ruining American Kids’ Intelligence

But if something like "Common Core" is simply allowed to persist, and past the transition from a Democratic to a Republican president, there are reasons why this is allowed to continue.

Intellectually, and sometimes chemically challenged individuals, particularly as kids, make far better targets for governmental manipulation, than does someone who has a fundamentally "top-down" understanding of how things work.

So if a population of a country is unable to think critically, starting with those crucial, formative school years, and is also chemically disabled, through the easy availability of SSRIS, or other pharmacologically active drugs thrust upon them, the government believes that anything it says, no matter how completely ludicrous, is most probably going to be taken at face value, even though it might be the polar opposite of the truth.

Ever since the inception of the Vietnam War, I have understood, very clearly, and painfully, that the US government has a penchant for lying, in order to justify massive aggression against a country which has neither declared war against us, or done anything nasty against us.

But DAMN, it was a "heady moment" for all the military contractors, because so much of their equipment got destroyed, and had to be replaced.

It was only when President Johnson saw the massive march in DC in 69, he realized that he could not possibly get re-elected on the war agenda, that began his pilgrimage on that hard road to reality, that this war was unwinnable.

1969: Millions march in US Vietnam Moratorium.
Americans have taken part in peace initiatives across the United States to protest against the continuing war in Vietnam.
The Peace Moratorium is believed to have been the largest demonstration in US history with an estimated two million people involved.

The wars, and war crimes, in which this country has been monumentally complicit since then, are crystal-clear testaments to the butt-ugly truth; that most generally, the Federal Government has gotten its population precisely where it wants it: sated with readily-available prescription drugs, putting them in a state of stupor; always craving new distractions; and trapped by the inability to think critically, when it comes to both personal, and political decisions.

Can we make our education system the envy of the world?!?

Absolutely.

But the leadership is then going to have to put up with the fact that some thinking, peaceful Americans are going to, both logically and publicly, criticize how and what this government is doing, and ask for a real, and responsible, and substantive change in its course of action.

And THAT is something that those entrenched in the Bowels of Power in this country, never want to see happen.

'Snarky' Stanford Impeachment Witness Apologizes After Outrage Over Barron Trump Comment

Update: Stanford University Professor Pamela Karlan apologized on Wednesday after receiving sharp rebuke for mentioning President Trump's 13-year-old son, Barron Trump.

No apology from an angry partisan would be complete, however, without a new attack in the same breath...

"I want to apologize for what I said earlier about the president's son. It was wrong of me to do that. I wish the president would apologize, obviously, for the things that he's done that's wrong, but I do regret having said that," she said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF you are smart, in the game of geopolitics, you never go after a "political assassination target's" kid; that is sheer Kryptonite for anything possibly pertinent to the case at hand you have to say after making that kind of a gaffe.

The professors who have been chosen to testify in this "kangaroo court", all have one thing in common; and that is, a collective absolute, snarling, loathing of President Trump, and everything he stands for; legal immigration; the rule of law; and the steadfastness in his conviction that the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, are truly the still standing, and original, Contract with America.

And hey, Dr. Karlan; if you ever get out this way, to a legal symposium here in Indiana, please stop by for tea.

I would love to meet you, and explain to you why, during 2016, I found myself more supportive of Trump than Hillary Clinton.

You will find me friendly, an equity feminist, reasonably well-educated, a church-goer, and an essentially a very gentle soul, who does not belch fire when speaking lucidly, and logically, about why I made my choice to support Trump over Clinton.

Perhaps such dialogue will prove elucidating for you, if you would dare to try it. :-)

David Cole in Auschwitz—David Cole Interviews Dr. Franciszek Piper, Director, Auschwitz State Museum

A young Jewish holocaust revisionist, posing as a believer, puts some hard questions to a museum tour guide and to the senior curator of the Auschwitz State Museum. After making this video, a "hit" was put out on Cole, and a reward for information on his whereabouts was issued by Irv Rubin (who years later, was arrested by the FBI for planning to kill a Lebanese-American Congressman.) Fearing assassination, Cole went into hiding, changing his name to David Stein. Some 20 years later, when a disgruntled former girlfriend blew his cover, he resurfaced again, unapologetic about his iconoclastic views on Auschwitz…

Get off your phone! Study finds students who use their mobile 'intensely' at university get lower grades and are more likely to FAIL their exams

Almost 700 students at the University of Ghent had their mobile phone use tracked and compared to their test scores.

Researchers found that intense phone use well above the norm — around five times in an hour-long lecture — causes a five per cent drop in exam scores compared to someone who shuns their device.

Anything more significant than using the device to check the time was taken into consideration, including using social media, using the internet or playing games.

The drop-off in exam scores is also linked with a higher chance of failing.

Phone-obsessed students were eight per cent more likely to flunk, sporting a 60.6 per cent pass rate, compared to the 68.9 per cent pass rate for those capable of leaving their handset face down.

The American Empire and its Media

Largely unbeknownst to the general public, executives and top journalists of almost all major US news outlets have long been members of the influential Council on Foreign Relations (CFR).

Established in 1921 as a private, bipartisan organization to “awaken America to its worldwide responsibilities”, the CFR and its close to 5000 elite members for decades have shaped US foreign policy and public discourse about it. As a well-known Council member famously explained, they transformed the American republic into a global empire, albeit a “bene­volent” one.

ISRAELI GOVERNMENT TO EXPAND GLOBAL ARMS EXPORTS IN 2020

SOURCE: MIDDLE EAST MONITOR
The Israeli government is aiming to increase the volume of Israel’s defence exports, reported Globes, which has revealed the main points of the plan for the first time.

The project, being overseen by the Defence Ministry’s International Defence Cooperation Directorate (SIBAT) led by Brigadier General (Res.) Yair Kulas, will begin to be rolled out in early 2020.

According to Globes, the plan is based on “focused seminars for senior commanders in foreign armies”, Israeli military “assistance for promoting sales of Israeli weapons”, and “subsidising small and medium-sized defence companies seeking to sell arms around the world”.

Speaking this week, Kulas said that SIBAT favours a major expansion of agreements between countries, resulting in significant deals for the large defence companies, especially Elbit Systems, Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) and Rafael Advanced Defence Systems.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Color me unsurprised at this development; but one has to wonder how Israeli weaponry really stands up to that of China or Russia, at this point?!?

College Costs Skyrocket 112% Above Rate Of Inflation Over Last Four Years

Authored by Jeremiah Poff via The College Fix,

As the issue of college affordability continues to be a prominent talking point on the campaign trail ahead of the 2020 presidential election, a new study shows that the cost of a college education is still increasing at a rate that far outpaces inflation.

The study, put out by the financial technology company Self, found that on average, college costs have risen $2,835 since 2015, increasing 112 percent more than the rate of inflation during the same period.

“While it is somewhat understandable for universities to increase costs in line with inflation, especially when you consider the number of wages and resources needed to keep a university running, the price hikes we have found in some states are double (if not triple) the rate of inflation; posing the question of where is this money going,” Self CEO James Garvey said in an emailed statement to The College Fix.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is just plain nuts; but the other question which must be asked is, are these degrees transferable, in terms of real life skills, enabling that student to graduate, then work, in the 21st century?!?

That should be an issue around every dining table in all the homes where teens are very keen to get into college, and finish.

BERKELEY INSTRUCTOR: "RURAL AMERICANS" ARE "BAD PEOPLE WHO HAVE MADE BAD LIFE DECISIONS"

In the now-deleted Twitter post published on Nov. 5, Kernion explained why he thought it is plausible to shame rural Americans.

“I unironically embrace the bashing of rural Americans. they, as a group, are bad people who have made bad life decisions,” Kernion wrote.

“Some, I assume, are good people. But this nostalgia for some imagined pastoral way of life is stupid, and we should shame people who aren’t pro-city.”

Before turning to critique the rural American lifestyle, Kernion wrote in another post about affordable healthcare for rural Americans.

He said he believed it would mean they have to be subsidized by “those who choose a more efficient way of life.”

“Rural healthcare should be expensive!” he wrote.

“And that expense should be borne by those who choose rural America!”

“It should be uncomfortable to live in rural America. It should be uncomfortable to not move,” he added.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mike and I chose to move to Indiana, in a much more rural community, primarily due to the reality that it is off most foreign invasion pathways, unlike Oahu, (known fact) which is a military comm center for much military communications flowing eastward.

If this guy had to grown anything, to later be harvested and eaten, he would most probably die of starvation before that could happen.

It’s now mandatory to wear LGBT symbols or else you’re guilty of “hate speech”

A 17-year-old girl from Manitoba, Canada, was suspended from her high school recently for objecting to wearing a “rainbow-colored” LGBTQP poppy broach, a personal decision that faculty and administrators at the school dubbed as “hate speech” before punishing her for it.

While the Interlake School Division refuses to either confirm or deny that this Stonewall Collegiate student, identified only as Natalie, was, in fact, suspended until after Remembrance Day, statements that she and her father made to the Post Millennial reveal that this is precisely what took place.

Common Core Graduates Are The Worst Prepared For College

I feel like plucking some low-hanging fruit today, and so let's take a look at Common Core. I've written of it before, how it ignores science, how it's just another excuse to inject more indoctrination into our schools, and how by changing the approach to how mathematics is learned, will further separate the children from their parents, since the latter won't have a clue how to help their kids with homework using the convoluted new methods.

Predicting the failure of Common Core is about as easy as predicting Epstein's "suicide" in prison, but now we get to see how well the "new ways of knowing" methods of Common Core are working, but it's now been 4 years since this idiotic idea was proposed--enough time for a kid go through all of high school, using Common Core as preparation for college.

Romanian-Born Ivy League Professor Warns: Anti-White Mindset Infecting USA “on Its Way Toward Full Blown Communism"

Serban says in the interview that after a faculty member retired, the remaining professors in the department were called in to a meeting to discuss a replacement.

It was at this meeting that the dean of the art school told them that there were “too many white professors, too many heterosexual men,” and that it would be best to hire a minority or a woman, or a gay man.

Serban, who was the director of the hiring committee, says that he was told that it could not be someone like him because he is a man that has been “married, a heterosexual man who has children.”

America's Endless Wars: "At West Point, Graduation Day Felt More Like A Tragedy Than A Triumph"

Authored by US Army Major Danny Sjursen (ret.) via TheNation.com,

Patches, pins, medals, and badges are the visible signs of an exclusive military culture, a silent language by which soldiers and officers judge each other’s experiences, accomplishments, and general worth. In July 2001, when I first walked through the gate of the US Military Academy at West Point at the ripe young age of 17, the “combat patch” on one’s right shoulder - evidence of a deployment with a specific unit - had more resonance than colorful medals like Ranger badges reflecting specific skills. Back then, before the 9/11 attacks ushered in a series of revenge wars “on terror,” the vast majority of officers stationed at West Point didn’t boast a right shoulder patch. Those who did were mostly veterans of modest combat in the first Gulf War of 1990–91. Nonetheless, even those officers were regarded by the likes of me as gods. After all, they’d seen “the elephant.”

Substandard Education in America

The quality of American education, as we will see, is far lower than the world has been led to believe, and the quality in China is in many cases much superior to that in the US. Americans might care to ask why it is that Chinese elementary or high school students moving to the US are often promoted by one or two grades. The reason is that they know so much more than their American counterparts they would suffer terminal boredom if forced to remain at their prior grade level. If we refer to the PISA tests, Shanghai’s math scores were 119 above the OECD average, or the equivalent of nearly three years of schooling, with reading and science exceeding the OECD average by about 1.5 years of schooling. And in some cases, the American students were behind the OECD average by approximately the same number of years as the Chinese were ahead.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Folks, this cannot be seen in any possible light but that of a deliberate push by the US government to keep its people illiterate; innumerate; and incapable of critical thinking.

‘Britain’s biggest snowflake’: Parents slam Brighton head teacher for banning children from playing tag because it's 'too rough'

A head teacher has been branded 'Britain's biggest snowflake' for banning children from playing 'rough' contact games like tag.

Joanne Smith told pupils at Rudyard Kipling Primary School in Brighton, East Sussex, they had to play with 'gentle hands' - banning traditional games like 'it' or 'British Bulldog.'

Instead, children are being encouraged to hold hands or clap with each other while in the playground.

Parents of children at the school reacted with fury when they were told about the 'gentle hands' policy.

An Obituary of the Western World

A World Based On Lies Is A False World

Paul Craig Roberts

During the course of my life I have watched the Western World abandon all of the values that made it successful. Despite all its crimes, and they are many, the Western World succeeded. Everyone wanted to be part of it, and it will be the demise of the Russians that they still do.

The Western World succeeded, because it believed in objective truth and searched for it. This resulted in scientific and technological discoveries, in architectual and artistic beauty, and in brilliant literature that educated the educatable into the human condition.

LEAKED DOCUMENT REVEALS THAT SIDEWALK LABS’ TORONTO PLANS FOR PRIVATE TAXATION, PRIVATE ROADS, CHARTER SCHOOLS, CORPORATE COPS AND JUDGES, AND PUNISHMENT FOR PEOPLE WHO CHOOSE PRIVACY

SOURCE: BOING BOING
Tomorrow, Toronto’s City Council will hold a key vote on Sidewalk Labs’s plan to privatize much of the city’s lakeshore in the name of creating a "smart city" owned by Google’s parent company, Alphabet.

Today, the Globe and Mail published a summary of Sidewalk Labs’s leaked "yellow book", a 2016 document that lays out Sidewalk Labs’s vision for Toronto and future projects in Detroit, Denver, and Alameda.

The plan lays out a corporate-owned city similar to Lake Buena Vista, the privately owned municipality established by the Walt Disney Company on a massive tract of central Florida land that contains the Walt Disney World resort.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That last statement, is complete and utter bovine excrement; this is precisely where the owners of Sidewalk Labs and Alphabet want to see society going.

One has to wonder when the netizens of this development will be forced, and on what schedule, to upload their thoughts for the week into the "dear leader's mainframe, to insure that they are not thinking those "double plus ungood thoughts" about anything to do with their current living situation.

Apparently, those folks who put this together do not understand that George Orwell's Classic, "1984", is a cautionary tale; not a how to manual.!!

How Micro-School Networks Expand Learning Options

By Kerry McDonald

Technology has the potential to decentralize K-12 education and make it more learner-directed, upending a top-down system in favor of individual autonomy and self-determination. But the technology can’t do this alone. It requires a learning environment that fosters creativity and curiosity, using digital platforms and supportive adults to facilitate exploration and discovery. The entrepreneurial educators at Prenda, an Arizona-based network of micro-schools, think they have uncovered the right mix of powerful technology and warm, nurturing learning spaces that could help to transform education...

To compare speed
I have added 4 other good fast archers together !
to show the time it takes to shoot 10 arrows.

It is completely unscientific and not objectively
The 4 other archers can probably shoot faster than these video.

Fastest horseback shooting in the world !
He was the one who first inspired me to fast shooting.

The usual procedure is to first lie about something the conservative (or libertarian) supposedly said to whip a “Twitter mob” into a hateful frenzy. The local media then pick up on it and pile on.

‘They barely know their biology!’ Parents protest as Texas school approves polarizing sex-ed curriculum teaching ‘gender identity’

A new sex-education curriculum will teach children in Austin, Texas about sexual orientation, as well as how to use prophylactics. Parents say the initiative encourages kids to engage in unhealthy and dangerous sexual activity.

Austin Independent School District’s board unanimously approved the new course material on Tuesday. The curriculum, which spans grades three through eight, will touch upon gender identity – a first for the district. Seventh graders (12-year-olds) will also learn about how to correctly use a condom. Proponents of the new guidelines said that it’s important to foster “healthy communication” about sex and relationships, as well as to reaffirm the district’s support for the LGBTQ community.

Plenty of parents were less than thrilled about the new changes, however.

Special-Ed Students Are Secretly Being Restrained And Labeled “High-Level Threats”

By MassPrivateI

Searchlight New Mexico’s disturbing report about threat assessments in the Albuquerque Public School (APS) system should serve as a wake-up call to everyone.

The report reveals that schools across the country have been giving students threat assessments for at least twenty years. Which should come as no surprise to my readers. Three years ago, I wrote about the dangers of using threat assessments on pre-school kids all the way through college.

What is happening in the APS system is enough to make even the most ardent supporter of threat assessments reconsider how schools use them...

IBTimes Publishes “The Dangerous Push for More Technology in Schools.” Silicon Valley Parents Still Sending Their Kids to Low-Tech or No-Tech Schools

By B.N. Frank

For many years now Silicon Valley parents – including Bill Gates and the late Steve Jobs – have been sending their own kids to private low-tech or no-tech schools AND limiting their use of it in their homes while tech companies have been convincing everybody else that their kids will benefit from using tech at home and in school. Did you know that?

Today’s Silicon Valley parents seem to be even more concerned about their kids’ exposure to tech. This includes making their nannies sign “no screens” contracts and spying on them to make sure they don’t break these contracts. Does it seem like they know something that most of us don’t?

On both sides of the political aisle, workforce-training reforms are being touted as the be-all, end-all of America’s public education system. Right-wing “school choice” proponents, such as President Donald Trump and Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, push corporate charter school programs with workforce-training curriculums. Left-wing “community schooling” advocates, such as Democratic Presidential candidates Joe Biden and Julián Castro, push “lifelong-learning” programs with school-to-work curriculums. Both “conservatives” and “liberals” concur: the purpose of public education is workforce development.

Why Has There Been A 56% Increase In Suicide Among Young Americans In Just 10 Years?

Authored by Michael Snyder via The End of The American Dream blog,

It is very hard to face the future when you don’t have any hope. Today, our society offers more ways to entertain ourselves than ever before, but it offers very little hope. Most people spend most of their lives wandering from one thing to another looking for meaning and purpose, and of course most of those journeys come up empty. We may have a much higher standard of living than any other generation in history, but we are also have the highest rates of addiction, depression and suicide. As a society, we are deeply, deeply unhappy, and this is especially true for our young people.

How can things get that much worse in just 10 years?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These numbers are absolutely astounding.

Love; structure; and limits are the "three legged stool" that generally keeps kids happy; I have seen that within my own family, and although it is way too soon to predict what these children will do for work when they get older, they will be given encouragement to do something they love, and in which they will excel.

Terrorized, Traumatized, & Terminated: The Police State's Deadly Toll On America's Children

Authored by John Whitehead via The Rutherford Institute,

“Mommy, am I gonna die?”— 4-year-old Ava Ellis after being inadvertently shot in the leg by a police officer who was aiming for the girl’s boxer-terrier dog, Patches

“‘Am I going to get shot again.’”—2-year-old survivor of a police shooting that left his three siblings, ages 1, 4 and 5, with a bullet in the brain, a fractured skull and gun wounds to the face

Children learn what they live.

As family counselor Dorothy Law Nolte wisely observed, “If children live with criticism, they learn to condemn. If children live with hostility, they learn to fight. If children live with fear, they learn to be apprehensive.”

And if children live with terror, trauma and violence - forced to watch helplessly as their loved ones are executed by police officers who shoot first and ask questions later - will they in turn learn to terrorize, traumatize and inflict violence on the world around them?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF Mike and I had ever had children, the way kids are treated in public schools, is a damned good reason to not ever let them get enrolled in one.

In this new age of rapidly advancing technologies that are automating “low-skill” jobs, many parents are understandably concerned that their children’s schooling will fail to prepare them to survive in a hi-tech future where the economy is driven by computers. However, parents should be skeptical of hyped-up “career pathways” curriculums that train students in hi-tech skills prescribed for job placement in the fields of “Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics” (STEM).
