    >Last night on his eponymous Fox News program, Tucker Carlson interviewed David Moyse, an attorney hired to defend 18 year-old Henry Sanchez-Milian, who is in this country illegally, against a charge of rape against a 14 year old girl in a bathroom at a Rockville, MD, high school. Moyse is one of those youngish (in his 30s) lawyers who gets himself on lists of up-and-comers, like this one, and is a name partner in a criminal defense firm. In going on TV to make the case for his client, Counselor Moyse found himself being cross-examined and saying something he soon...

    Rockville, Md., the city home to the recent immigrant high school rape scandal, is considering declaring itself a sanctuary city to hide illegals. Although Rockville police have had a long-standing policy neither to question suspected illegals about their immigration status, or to cooperate with federal immigration authorities, the city is now considering the process of formalizing that informal standard by becoming a sanctuary city. Rockville City Councilmember Julie Palakovich Carr introduced an ordinance in early March in response to President Donald Trump’s pledge to beat back illegal immigration.

    Only in America and other western countries do displays of patriotism and national pride appear to be branded as "racist" or bigoted, as students wearing patriotic attire at a local high school basketball game soon discovered. The issue started during a basketball game between Valley High and Des Moines North High School. Some students from Valley High supported their team by wearing patriotic attire such as red, white and blue shorts and shirts. On the surface nothing seems out of place. After all, why would wearing the flag of the country you're living in and displaying your patriotism be unacceptable?...

  • Today's High School Students Are Most Conservative In 70 Years

    Numerous studies have confirmed that the high school students of today are the most politically conservative generation in the past 70 years, in spite of -- or perhaps because of -- the incessant leftist and Cultural Marxist propaganda disseminated through the public school system. The first main survey to support this conclusion was conducted by marketing firm The Guild, which interviewed 2,000 14- and 15-year-olds late last year. The conclusions of the survey were shocking. 59 percent of "Generation Z" held conservative views on same-sex marriage, "transgender rights", and the legalization of marijuana. "According to the report, which was published...

    We recently received a disappointing ruling in the case of Bill Diss, a Portland, Oregon public school teacher who was fired after he objected to facilitating a Planned Parenthood sex education program in his classroom. The judge granted the defendant’s motion for summary judgment, which means the case cannot go before a jury. Life Legal is appealing the decision.Bill Diss became “enemy number one” with his local Planned Parenthood affiliate when he led opposition to a new PP mega-facility in downtown Portland.When Planned Parenthood employees wanted to come into Diss’ classroom to recruit students for their “Teen Outreach Program,” or...

    "As you listen to the news about the student protests over President-Elect Trump's approach to illegal immigration, there are some things that you should be aware of: I am in charge of the English-as-a-second-language department at a large Southern California high school which is designated a Title 1 school, meaning that its students average lower socioeconomic and income levels. Most of the schools you are hearing about, South Gate High, Bell Gardens, Huntington Park , etc., where these students are protesting, are also Title 1 schools.

    MOUNTAIN VIEW (KPIX 5) — A Mountain View high school teacher was kicked out of his classroom and is now getting threats for comparing President-elect Donald Trump to Hitler. Frank Novarro doesn’t know when he’ll be in front of the classroom again after a history lesson he believes was misunderstood. While some are accusing the history teacher of calling Trump a racist by drawing the comparison, he says that didn’t happen. “Because I think that it is historically factual,” says Novarro.

    he morning after Donald Trump was named president of the United States, students at Berkeley High School walked out of class, along with their teachers, to say that he is not their president. The move, where students held up F--- Trump and Mexican flag signs, follow on the heels of protests around the country, and in the Bay Area, where mostly young millennials protested in the streets, burning Trump effigies and lighting fires in the streets. But that's not what Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton said in her concession speech in New York on Wednesday. She reminded the country that Americans...

    Red is the primary color of Hendersonville High. It’s also the color of its presidential nominee. The 2016 Election Symposium was held Friday afternoon in the Hendersonville High auditorium. Bearcat Nation chose Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump over Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton in a race that came down to the final state. Similar in style to the Republican and Democratic national conventions, students were grouped by state and read their state’s choice for president out loud in the auditorium using the Electoral College process. The symposium was the culmination of a week-long study by the entire student body of this...

    A school has been criticised after punishing a whole cheerleading squad after a male student said he was distracted by their short skirts. The student at Timpview High School had “impure” thoughts after seeing the squad in their uniforms, People reports, and so his mother wrote to the school and complained. After the formal complaint was made, rather than helping the male student to deal with the thoughts, the Utah school’s administrators appear to have punished the whole cheerleading squad. Administrators told the cheerleading coach at the school, who told the 44-strong cheerleading squad that they should not wear their...

    Colin Kaepernick has yet to throw a regular-season pass, but the 49ers' backup quarterback's decision to kneel during the national anthem to protest social inequality has made an impact that extends well beyond a football game. As Kaepernick continues to protest, he has been joined by other NFL players, and athletes -- both professional and amateur -- in other sports. It has become a divisive topic nationally, especially in light of recent shootings of African-American men by police officers in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and Charlotte, North Carolina. On Friday night, Kaepernick was in Oakland at Castlemont High School, where he...

    Let's say your tenth-grader forgets his lunch. So you receive a telephone call at work. “Mom, I left my baloney sandwich on the kitchen counter,” he tells you. “Can you bring it to me, pretty please?” So, what would you do? I’d be willing to bet a Moonpie that many parents would drop everything and rush to the school to personally deliver their little snowflake’s brown bag lunch. But that sort of coddling is not allowed at Catholic High School for Boys in Little Rock, Arkansas. As a matter of fact – it’s outright banned. Catholic High School prides itself...

    A Texas high schooler left homeless after the death of his mom has graduated top of his class and even won a full college scholarship. Liyjon DeSilva was just five years old when he lost his mother, and spent the next few years living with between different relatives until he was finally just abandoned. But even while he was spending his nights sleeping in parking lots or on park benches in southwest Houston, Texas he never considered missing school.
