    Since MSNBC's Rachel Maddow is still preoccupied with the supposed influence of Russia on President Donald Trump and the American political process, we suggest that the publication of a new book called Communism for Kids by MIT Press is worthy of her attention. On the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the 1917 Russian revolution, this book offers a glimpse into an uprising that was global in scope and which has not only destroyed the moral fiber of Russia, but has also done enormous damage to America. The author of Communism for Kids, Bini Adamczak, writes that "the Russian revolution...

    This is parenting done right. We applaud those folks who get their kids involved in all things outdoors, whether it be fishing, hunting, or shooting sports. For eight-year-old Addy, a junior competitive shooter in rim fire pistol iron sights, it's obvious she got an early start and was taught all of the correct habits to be ingrained in the muscle memory. The following clip highlights some impressive skills, including the ability to follow commands, awareness of safety, excellent body positioning and accurate shooting. Watch how composed she is for an 8 yr old, here

    (Washington Free Beacon) — MIT Press is out with a new book that teaches children the tenets of Karl Marx with fairy tales. Communism for Kids, written by a German author who specializes in political theory and “queer politics,” was released last month. The thesis of the children’s book is that communism is “not that hard,” but has not been implemented in the right way. {..snip..}

    WASHINGTON - FOX 5 was the first to report D.C. police were tweeting about an unusually high number of missing children. According to city officials, there is not an uptick in missing persons cases, but community members remain frustrated. On Wednesday night, a town hall-style meeting was held at Excel Academy Public Charter School in Southeast D.C., which was hosted by Ward 8 Councilmember Trayon White. Hundreds of people packed the room for this meeting while there were many others who could not even get in the door. The heart of this forum – what is going on and what...

    Now for something completely different. Young Phoenix Legg started his “career” reporting on American politics during the presidential debates of 2016. He’s covered rallies, protests, and conventions, doggedly chasing down interviews and showing more maturity and integrity per pound than any reporter on the network news. We were so impressed that we set aside time to get his story where he shares his thoughts on the current state of political media. Phoenix has a blog worth checking out where he takes on social justice warriors, protesters, and “ignorant folks who say hateful things.” Bravo to Phoenix and his Father Matt....

    Joining the Police Force Three Atlantic Canada boys were all applying for the last available position on the St. John's Police Force. The detective conducting the interview looked at the three of them and said, "So you all want to be cops, huh?" The detective got up, opened a file drawer, and pulled out a folder. Sitting back down, he opened it, pulled out a picture, and said, "To be a detective, you have to be able to detect. You must be able to notice things such as distinguishing features and oddities like scars and so forth."

    So many parents are saying they "don't know what to say" to their children about Donald Trump being elected the 45th president of the United States. One Seattle mom, Molly Spence Sahebjami, helped her 5-year-old son write a letter to Donald Trump after the tumultuous and scandal-ridden election asking for him to "be kind." Sahebjami started a Facebook group that now has more than 10,000 members called "Dear President Trump: Letters from Kids About Kindness," encouraging children to write letters on how to be kind. The mom says, "There were things that

    Video Link A student at Stafford Elementary is recovering Wednesday after being beaten by several of his classmates. He says it was during a mock election when the class was asked, “Who voted for Donald Trump?” In an exclusive interview with FOX 26, the 11-year-old boy involved and his family tell us what happened. “This is America,” said Mary Lemmon, the mother of the student beaten. “Everyone has the right to their own opinion, and they shouldn’t be beat up for it.” But just a day after Donald Trump was elected President, that’s exactly what happened to her son at...

    Maclean’s spoke with Eric Walters, author of national bestselling children’s books, to find out how Canadian parents and teachers can explain America’s rowdiest politician to kids. Q: How can adults explain Trump to kids? A: How do you explain a sociopath to an eight-year-old? That’s a hard one. A mean man. A non-Canadian. Darth Vader. Actually, can’t you picture Darth Vader with that hair? But in the end, good does prevail. Show them there are good parts of life. Show them Michelle Obama’s speech. You need to say, “but here is what good people do. Here in Canada, we’re different.”...

    (CNSNews.com) - In his weekly address for Father’s Day weekend, President Barack Obama spoke about the terrorist attack in Orlando—carried out by a terrorist who “pledged allegiance to ISIL”—and said that children need to hear their parents “speak up” about the risks guns pose to American communities. “Time and again, we’ve observed moments of silence for victims of terror and gun violence," said Obama. "Too often, those moments have been followed by months of silence. By inaction that is simply inexcusable. If we’re going to raise our kids in a safer, more loving world, we need to speak up for...

    Airline passengers flying into Baltimore Washington International Airport (BWI) can look down and see a new, bold, controversial political sign in the days leading up to Maryland Republican primary. A giant orange “TRUMP” sign is on the roof of a house directly under the approach for BWI. Donald Trump has a double digit lead in the Republican primary in Maryland, but the blue state is making many of his supporters hide their vote. But one retired police detective decided to fight back– in a “yuge” way — after his 12-year old daughter was bullied at school for backing the billionaire...

    These gnome houses in hollowed out logs were one of the first along the east end of Fisherman's Trail in Little Buffalo State Park. Park management has evicted the gnomes. As Steve Hoke was leaving Little Buffalo State Park on Monday after removing 38 gnome homes, he met a man and his daughter. The 7-year-old girl had just finished her last chemo treatment. Her dad asked what she wanted to do – she said she wanted to see in person the gnome houses that she had seen on Facebook. Hoke was pulling a garden wagon full of the 38 gnome...
