    The National Law Journal ^ | 6/28/2017 | Erin Mulvaney
    With President Donald Trump’s nominees on their way to the Senate, labor and employment attorneys say the National Labor Relations Board is poised to roll back regulations with its first Republican majority in nearly a decade. Management-side attorneys and anti-union advocates are hopeful Obama-era regulations will be scuttled in favor of business-friendly practices.

    A prominently displayed bulletin board at Appalachian State University has been taken over by campus collectivists in an effort to encourage certain students to “check their privilege” during their daily walk to class. The board is displayed in the Plemmons Student Union building, which ASU calls “the centerpiece of the Appalachian campus.” The board contains various different posters that condemn white, male, cisgender, heterosexual, Christian, and able-bodied persons who are unaware of their inherent societal privilege.

    **SNIP** There have also been concerns following the discovery that a prosecutor in the Harris County district attorney's Division of Criminal Family Law also serves as a director on the board of Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast. According to reports, Lauren Reeder told District Attorney Devon Anderson earlier this year about her work with the abortion giant in order to be "transparent." However, she also said that she didn't see a conflict of interest in the situation. "I don't think there's any conflict in my dual roles in two separate organizations," Reeder told reporters.

    NBC 4 New York ^ | 9/17/15 | Brian Thompson
    A Jersey City school board meeting Thursday to vote on whether to close for the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Adha on Sept. 24 turned contentious before the board ultimately decided not to close schools next week. The Jersey City Board of Education had originally proposed to close schools next Thursday so that Muslim students could observe the holiday, and the City Council unanimously supported it a week ago. The academic year would have extended one day to June 23, 2016 as a result. School Principal Does the Nae Nae at Morning Drop-Off But during the nearly four hours of debate...

    A student's Jewish affiliation became the subject of a heated debate at University of California in Los Angeles (UCLA) earlier this month, after the student government nearly scrapped her acceptance due to her background. Student Rachel Beyda applied to be a member of the UCLA Judicial Board in February, and presented herself as a candidate in front of the Board. However, the meeting quickly dissolved into a debate over whether her Jewish background and affiliation with Jewish life on campus is a "conflict of interest," as can be seen in the video below. The debate begins at 47:30.

    NY Daily News: In my “Albany Insider” column today, I wrote how Tom King, the head of the state Rifle & Pistol Association, was critical of the increasingly angry and inflammatory rhetoric at pro-gun rallies. King said he fears that the ugliness that has popped up at the rallies is actually hurting the pro-gun cause. He also said it’s time to stop the rallies, arguing that they won’t result in a repeal of the SAFE Act. He wants to instead focus on trying to get the law struck down in the court … I won’t post his silly letter, but...

    So in Missouri we have a state fair board that is administering social justice, sensitivity training, not to mention life time bans for freedom of speech: to rodeo clowns! So I am asking for any and all information on these board members, and how they get their jobs. I know, I should find out myself. But, I support 5 kids and a stay-at-home wife. So if you have a few minutes to help, lets multiply our time and be effective. Tomorrow, I will talk to local chapters (they are already pissed and active), to get them focused on details. All...

    In May 2013, John Rosemond — America's longest running newspaper columnist—received an astonishing order from the Kentucky attorney general: Stop publishing your advice column in the Bluegrass State or face fines and jail. The attorney general and Kentucky's psychologist licensing board believe that John's column, which is syndicated in more than 200 papers nationwide, constitutes the "unlicensed practice of psychology" in Kentucky when it appears in a Kentucky newspaper. Kentucky's crackdown is part of a national surge in the abuse of occupational licensing laws to censor advice. On July 17, 2013, John joined the Institute for Justice to fight back...

    The body charged by President Obama with protecting the civil liberties and privacy of the American people exists in shadows almost as dark as the intelligence agencies it is designed to oversee. The Privacy & Civil Liberties Board (PCLOB) was due to meet Obama at the White House on Friday afternoon at 3pm in the situation room to discuss growing concerns over US surveillance of phone and internet records – or, at least, that´s what unnamed "senior administration officials" said would happen. The meeting did not appear on the president´s official diary issued to journalists, nor has

    FONTANA, Calif. (KTLA) — Controversy is heating up in over 14 high-powered, semi-automatic rifles purchased by school police in Fontana. The $19,000 worth of weaponry was purchased a few months ago by the Fontana Unified School District Police Chief Billy Green. The rifles were ordered back in October — before the deadly school shooting in Newtown, Conn. — but officials say they hope they’ll prevent any future tragedies. Some school board members objected to the move at the time, but on Wednesday night, the board voted unanimously in favor of dispatching the rifles.

    JS Online ^ | 3-2-12 | Karen Herzog
    Two state Republican lawmakers are leading an eleventh-hour charge to change the makeup of the Milwaukee Area Technical College Board, saying they want to build a stronger partnership with the business community. The legislation would increase official representation of area businesses from two to five of the nine MATC board seats, and would change who appoints board members. The proposal faces a backlash before a key Assembly committee vote Thursday that could keep it from reaching the floor of the Legislature before the regular session ends March 15. Critics argue that businesses already are represented in the experience of board...

This year I am only endorsing one candidate, Maria Heil, and asking voting members of NRA to cast ballots with only Mrs. Heil’s name marked. While I do not know Mrs. Heil personally, she comes highly recommended by friends whose...

    About 15 percent of black students in St. Paul were suspended at least once last year, compared with 3 percent of whites. To address the problem, the district decided in 2009 to spend about $450,000 of $58 million it received through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act to institute the Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) program. The program requires administrators and teachers to periodically evaluate their school rules and determine which ones call for suspensions and which call for lesser punishments. They're also encouraged to be more explicit about what is expected of students in order to be successful...

    It probably would not surprise you to learn that the Obama administration is apparently using the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) as a battering ram to aid powerful (and financially supportive) unions. The target is the Boeing Corporation. And Judicial Watch has launched a full investigation into the matter. On Monday, August 15, we filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the NLRB to obtain records concerning the agency’s decision to file its lawsuit against Seattle-based Boeing for opening a $750 million non-union assembly plant in North Charleston, South Carolina to manufacture its Dreamliner plane

    Medicare Payment Board Draws BrickbatsBy Julie Rovner Tue., July 12, 2011 3:00am (EDT) One thing both Democrats and Republicans agree on is that they can't solve the deficit problem without slowing the growth of the massive Medicare program for the elderly and disabled. But here's an irony. Republicans and a growing number of Democrats also seem to agree that they don't like the one aspect of last year's Affordable Care Act that actually would effectively reduce Medicare spending. It's called the Independent Payment Advisory Board, or IPAB for short. Republicans hate it. A lot. "I believe it is a rationing...

    A toxic political strategy is spreading across the land, one that involves Medicare. It threatens to bamboozle voters and allow the 2012 election to turn on a lie. Democrats are making the obscenely false claim that they will "save Medicare as we've known it." On Wednesday, Democrats used this deceptive strategy to take the special election in the 26th congressional district in western New York. Sadly, this corrupt strategy is likey to be repeated. Voters need to know the facts. The truth is, the Obama health law, passed by Democrats last year, already eviscerated Medicare — though seniors won't feel...
