    December 2, 2016 Cyberbullying Pushed Texas Teen To Commit Suicide, Family Says TEXAS CITY, Texas -- Family members of a Houston-area high school student who killed herself are rallying for tighter laws against cyberbullying.

Her father, Raul Vela, said she had been receiving abusive text messages for months from bullies using an untraceable smartphone application. Her father said someone made a fake Facebook page of her, creating another cyberbullying...

(Photo: Eric Risberg/AP) The day after the presidential election, high schoolers in Illinois reportedly yelled things like “terrorist” and “pack your bags” at their immigrant classmates on the school bus, while a Jewish student at the same school was reportedly told, “We’ll burn you.”

    Well the left wing media is at it again my friends! This time they not only no longer bother to hide their liberal bias and un-objective reporting, the now have decided to attack Donald Trumps son Barron. During the election celebration, Barron Trump was looking dozy and tired, he is no doubt up past his bedtime as the announcement comes in that his father is now the president and no doubt feeling emotional and doing his best to hide it with the whole world watching him. For a ten year old boy, this must be a hard moment. He's up...

    An Oregon bureaucrat who waged political jihad against the owners of a Christian bakery was given the heave-ho by voters. Labor Commissioner Brad Avakian was defeated by Republican Dennis Richardson in his bid to be Secretary of State. It's the first time a Republican has been elected to a statewide office in Oregon since 2002. So consider this – Avakian was too liberal for what is arguably one of the most liberal states in the country. Avakian, a passionate advocate for the LGBTQIA crowd, was thrust into the national spotlight when he declared war on a Christian bakery in 2013.

On social media, almost every message I get from a Clinton supporter is a bullying type of message. They insult. They try to shame. They label. And obviously they threaten my livelihood.

    If Donald Trump thought he was in a two-to-one fight at the last presidential debate (Hillary Clinton and debate moderator Lester Holt) he should be prepared for a three-to-one fight on Sunday night. In addition to his Democratic opponent, Trump will be going up against CNN anchor Anderson Cooper and ABC reporter Martha Raddatz. A look at their careers shows they both have a tendency to lean left.

Crooked Hillary's website states that the Southern Poverty Law Center, a liberal activist group posing as a civil rights organization, surveyed teachers across America and that the teachers reported that "students, particularly Muslims and [illegal] immigrant students, are worried about ... the election."

    he 2016 presidential campaign has hardly lived up to the ideal of a civil exchange of ideas facilitating a peaceful democracy. But a new report from the Southern Poverty Law Center suggests that the acrimony from the campaign trail may be having a broader, negative effect on society — particularly in American schools. An online survey of 2,000 educators – one that the center notes wasn’t scientific – found half saying they witnessed an increase in “uncivil political discourse” during the 2016 campaign. Two-thirds of respondents said their students – particularly Muslims, immigrants and children of immigrants – openly expressed...

Authorities have not revealed a motive for the shooting outside Antigo High School in northern Wisconsin and declined to comment Monday on whether bullying may have been a factor.

    Having kids who are in middle school provides a painful reminder that many children go through a phase of being cruel to others. Working in higher education is a painful reminder that some don't outgrow it. Observing my own children's experience while watching surprisingly similar conflicts play out among college students who insist that they deserve to be treated like "grown-ups" has been an eye-opener. The latest college brouhaha took place at Dartmouth College, where the Kappa Delta Epsilon sorority cancelled their annual Kentucky Derby party in response to protests that the party was "racist," "elitist" and "related to pre-war...

The project is being headed by Stanford University’s Virtual Human Interaction Lab, and the NFL is just one of many organisations that the laboratory is hoping to get involved. “Feeling prejudice by walking a mile in someone else’s shoes is what VR was made for,” said lab director Jeremy Bailenson.

    A school district in Delaware scrambled to apologize Wednesday for accidentally sending parents a humorous "hurt feelings report" sheet that appeared to make light of bullying. The sheet was sent as an email attachment to parents whose children attend Lombardy Elementary School in Wilmington. At first, the document looks almost indistinguishable from the various bureaucratic reporting forms used by the government across the country. But at a closer glance, the irreverent tone of the sheet quickly becomes apparent. The principal purpose of the document is "to assist whiners in documenting hurt feelings." Various fields to fill out include the "whiner’s...

    The gay rights movement has been very subversive in our schools. They claim they want kids to be taught tolerance towards gay kids, so they won't be bullied. But that's not what these tolerance and "anti-bullying" classes are really teaching. They are actually advocacy classes aimed at teaching a physically unhealthy lifestyle. The latest example of this can be seen at a middle school classroom in Iowa: The Iowa Governors Conference on LGBTQ Youth claims to be the largest homosexual youth conference in the nation, but contrary to popular opinion, its purpose is not fostering understanding in the schools or...

    The student sitting at the front of the class doesn’t know she’s about to be attacked. But others in the room apparently do. As another teenager approaches her from behind, several students in the class whip out their cellphones. They have no intention of dialing for help, however. Their aim is to record the encounter between the two teenage girls so that they can upload it to Instagram, YouTube and other sites. In the recordings, shot from multiple angles, the girls exchange words and, before long, a punch is thrown. A scuffle breaks out, with squeals and laughter from classmates...

    In Bible-belt Georgia, one would think that pro-life organizations would support the federal “Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act,” which imposes a 20 week abortion ban (with exceptions for rape and incest).  The bill passed the House last week generally along party lines, 242-184.  But one pro-life organization vigorously opposed this bill. Georgia Right to Life wrote that the bill, H.R. 36, “contains dangerous exceptions that allow babies conceived via rape or incest to be murdered despite the ability to feel pain.”  And while that’s true, this is more than a case of throwing out the baby with the bathwater.  It’s a...

    Bullying, at any age, is horrific in and of itself. However, when the bullying is initiated simply because someone does something in a manner that the bully does not agree with, and for no other reason, and the bully refuses to back down and leave things as they are, the bully becomes a much bigger threat. This was the case in a high school where a bully, described as a “thug,” would not back down and followed a student back and forth between two classrooms while students looked onward, refusing to step in and help the bullied boy out.

    The National Park Service used falsified data to shut down an 80-year-old oyster company in Point Reyes, Calif, its owner claims. Drakes Bay Oyster Company operated in Point Reyes for decades until National Park Service officials used falsified data to force Kevin Lunny’s family-run oyster farm to shut down. The experience has left its mark on Lunny: “We are terrified,” he told lawmakers during a hearing Thursday. “Let me be clear, we did not fail as a business,” Lunny said in his prepared testimony. “This was not bad luck. Rather, the Park Service engaged in a taxpayer-funded enterprise of corruption...

He also sent copies of his letter to the school superintendent, school board members, the mayor, aldermen and the woman who presented the exercise. “I wanted to make sure...

    - South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley considers the bid to unionize workers at Boeing Co's North Charleston plant a threat to one of her state's corporate crown jewels, and she is turning to radio, speeches and social media to denounce the campaign. "We don't need their bully middleman tactics between our associates and their employer," she wrote on Twitter last month. It was a message in keeping with Haley's previous declarations that she is a "union buster" who wears high heels to kick out organized labor "thugs" seeking to gain a foothold in the state. The April 22 union vote...

    Natika Bird says bullying killed her teenage daughter. Carla Jamerson, who was 14, will never get her driver’s license, graduate from high school or fulfill her dream of becoming a scientist.

    The girl's hand was stabbed during the fracas and she was taken for treatment to Broward Health North hospital in Deerfield Beach, Carter said. "This could have been much, much worse, because the mother of the bullied child was actually heading back to her vehicle to retrieve her firearm when we arrived on the scene," Carter said. Demps will be charged with felony possession of a firearm and aggravated battery, Carter said. The knife used in the stabbing belonged to Demps, and the other mother was also armed with a blade, according to the Sheriff's Office.
