    Education Secretary Betsy DeVos was invited to a meeting at Jefferson Middle School Academy Friday morning by the Washington, D.C. teacher’s union. However, when she arrived for the meeting, a handful of protesters took up positions on a narrow stairway and blocked her path. Video of the incident was captured by WJLA reporter Sam Sweeney: (VIDEO-AND-TWEET-AT-LINK) As DeVos turned away from the blocked stairway, a man holding a Black Lives Matter sign ran after her saying, “Keep giving money to Senators and buying your way to the position, you should be so proud of yourself.” DeVos got back in her...

    He represents a hotly contested Latino-majority district in Florida. Trump’s favorable rating among Latinos nationwide is, um, 12/77. Democrats will, of course, give special attention to turning out Latino Democrats in Florida. Curbelo’s probably doomed with Trump at the top of the ticket no matter what he does, but crossing the aisle for Hillary is an obvious first step. Frankly, he may be better off switching party affiliations if he wants to hold his seat. One of the eight thousand fascinating things about Trump as nominee would be watching how congressional loyalties shake out. Some, in purplish districts, will go...
  • School district refuses to let students leave for their ‘best interest’

    12/15/2014 9:35:28 AM PST · by afraidfortherepublic · 23 replies
    DELAVAN, Wis. – The Delavan-Darien School District denied a family’s request to enroll their children in a neighboring school district by citing the “best interest” of the children. “We believe it is in the best interest of your children to attend the Delavan-Darien School District,” said a letter from Superintendent Robert Crist to Les and Carol Paur. “Your application for the above students to transfer out of the Delavan-Darien School District into the Williams Bay School District under the open enrollment program has been denied by the Delavan-Darien School District for the 2014-15 school year.” Carol Paur, the mother of...
  • Ann Arbor Schools Bargains Over 'Prohibited Subject'

    Michigan Capitol Confidential ^ | 9/16/2014 | Tom Gantert
    Ann Arbor Public Schools three months ago negotiated a tentative agreement with its teachers union to provide “merit pay” of just $150 annually to educators who receive a “highly effective” rating. Under a law passed in 2011, however, merit pay is considered a “prohibited subject” for collective bargaining purposes. Yet Liz Margolis, spokeswoman for Ann Arbor Public Schools, claims that the district didn’t violate the law because choosing whether to negotiate over the issue remained under the “sole authority” of the school board. Margolis said parties can discuss prohibited subjects, but the union can’t require bargaining on it. But according...
  • Ex-Grassley aide David Young is GOP's candidate in Iowa's 3rd District

    After spending much of the day at the back of the pack, David Young of Van Meter was chosen Saturday by Iowa Republicans as their candidate for Iowa’s 3rd District House seat. “I’m so humbled by your support,” said Young, a former aide to U.S. Sen. Chuck Grassley. “But the work has just begun.” At a special convention in Urbandale, GOP delegates from across the district selected Young from a field of six candidates. None of the six received the required 35 percent in the June 3 primary, so the convention was needed.

    by Brian Hayes | Top Right NewsFurious over his support for amnesty for illegal aliens, conservative activists gave Rep. Eric Cantor a rough "welcome" in his own district -- sending a message that the House GOP leadership would be wise to heed before they hand Barack Obama a victory on "immigration reform". Cantor (R-Va.), the House Majority Leader was "heckled and booed" by conservatives and Tea Party activists at the 7th Congressional District Convention held in Richmond Saturday.  — and that wasn’t even the worst of it.

    The school district in Little Rock, Ark. has announced plans for a dress code that will require teachers to wear underwear. Every single day. Female teachers will have to wear bras, too. An Aug. 29 letter from the Little Rock School District’s Office of the Superintendent to all employees explains that the dress code will officially go into effect in the fall of 2014. “Foundational garments shall be worn and not visible with respect to color, style, and/or fabric,” the letter reads. “No see-through or sheer clothing shall be allowed, and no skin shall be visible between pants/trousers, skirts, and...

    Yet another student has been suspended for having something that represents a gun, but isn’t actually anything like a real gun. This time, Daniel McClaine, Jr., a freshman at Poston Butte High School in Tan Valley, Arizona, made the mistake of setting a picture of a gun as the desktop background on his school-issued computer. The picture shows an AK-47 lying on a flag, reports KNXV-TV. The gun isn’t his, McClaine assured the ABC affiliate in Phoenix. He found it on the Internet and liked it, partly because he is interested in serving in the military after graduation. A teacher...
  • Awarding Electoral Votes by Congressional District (vanity)

    I propose that we award Electoral Votes by Congressional District with the winner of each state receiving two additional EVs. As can be seen at the links below this change would negate the Liberals advantage in CA & NY (where more than Obama's ENTIRE pop vote margin came from in 2012) and would have resulted in McCain beating Obama in 2008 and Romney winning in 2012. http://www.polidata.org/prcd/ http://uselectionatlas.org/RESULTS/index.html Thoughts?

    It is one thing for tungsten-filled gold bars to appear in the UK, or in Germany: after all out of sight, and across the Atlantic, certainly must mean out of mind, and out of the safe. However, when a 10 ounce 999.9 gold bar bearing the stamp of the reputable Swiss Produits Artistiques Métaux Précieux (PAMP, with owner MTP) and a serial number (serial #038892, likely rehypothecated in at least 10 gold ETFs across the world but that's a different story), mysteriously emerges in the heart of the world's jewerly district located on 47th street in Manhattan, things get real...

    Democratic congressional candidate Patrick Murphy announced today that he will follow Allen West to the newly proposed District 18 to continue his campaign against him. The move comes after publically calling West a coward for leaving the district to run in a more favorable one. It seems that Murphy will be doing exactly that, with the blessing of popular Democratic leaders. He has yet to apologize to West for his remark.

    Indiana Republican Sen. Richard Lugar is running for re-election in a state he has not lived in for over 30 years. Lugar sold his home at 3200 Highwoods Court in Indianapolis shortly after first assuming office in 1977. But due to a loophole in Indiana law, both he and his wife Charlene Lugar are still registered to vote at that address. Greg Wright, an Indiana tea party member and certified fraud examiner, told The Daily Caller that he has been investigating Lugar’s residency situation “for a few weeks” and has not been paid for his efforts. He just heard one...

    PHOENIX (AP) — A federal judge Friday dismissed Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer's lawsuit that accused the Obama administration of failing to enforce immigration laws or maintain control of her state's border with Mexico. The dismissal by U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton comes in a counter-lawsuit filed by Brewer as part of the Justice Department's challenge to Arizona's controversial immigration enforcement law. The Republican governor was seeking a court order that would require the federal government to take extra steps, such as more border fencing, to protect Arizona until the border is controlled. Bolton said Brewer's claim that Washington has failed...

We were just trying to get students to read.”

Several of the city’s iconic neighborhoods are inside his district. CBS 2′s Pablo Guzman went to each borough on Tuesday and found voters are not happy about the “Weiner-gate” scandal. “He should go, absolutely. Absolutely.

    Va. black caucus pushes for second minority districtBy: David Sherfinski 03/22/11 8:05 PM The Virginia Legislative Black Caucus wants the state to draw a second high-percentage minority congressional district -- a move that could throw a proposal to protect all 11 House incumbents into chaos. There is currently one majority-black congressional district in Virginia -- the 3rd District, held by Democratic Rep. Bobby Scott -- that encompasses part of Richmond and runs down into Hampton Roads. For a state with a 20 percent black population to have one black member of Congress is "not representative," said state Sen. Mamie Locke,...
