    American Thinker ^ | Dec. 2, 2018 | Bruce Deitrick Price
    Sue Dickson is best known as the creator of Sing, Spell, Read, and Write, one of the most popular phonics programs. Now in her 80s, she is still active as ever, pushing phonics however possible, and refining a new approach. The ups-and-downs in her career tell us a lot about the sad state of American education. In her college’s pre-teacher program, she was taught nothing about phonics. Not only that, when she started to teach first-grade, her superiors constantly emphasized their verdict that phonics is useless and even dangerous. Sue Dickson recalls: “I was told that phonics doesn’t work, that...

    As Paris exploded with further protests and riots this weekend over French President Emmanuel Macron's liberal policies, France's so-called leader was hiding behind the majestic walls of his presidential palace as the streets of the capital erupted in fury. As angry citizens battled with authorities over policies pushed by the Macron Administration, the president skulked inside the Elysee Palace, guarded by hundreds of riot police and surrounded by armored cars bearing machine guns and grenade launchers.

    The sudden Monday meeting in Brussels between Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was widely interpreted as a signal for Israeli military action in Lebanon. Within hours Israeli media are reporting that "Operation Northern Shield" has been launched to destroy cross-border tunnels operated by the Iranian backed Hezbollah movement. Not a lot of information is being publicly released but it appears that the Israeli forces are operating on their side of the border to destroy parts of tunnels that are inside Israel's borders. Israeli farmers are being warned not to approach the border area....

    A Bangladeshi refugee, who raped a 16-year-old high-school girl in France, has been acquitted by the court due to “different cultural norms,” according to reports. The refugee, who attended the same school as his victim in the French city of Saint-Lô, was also charged with sexually assaulting another young girl in 2015. The attorney contended that the defendant possessed “different cultural norms,” which led to a "misunderstanding" of how the girl dressed, her behavior and looks.

    On October 24th, leftist lawyer and porn star hobbyist, Michael Avenatti, tweeted out the words “punch back.” While the tweet was sent to Stephen King it seems it may actually have been meant for the woman he was sharing his apartment with. Not long after this tweet, a woman who wasn’t aware that she needed to 'punch back' against the attorney was beaten senseless by the tiny typhoon of temper that Avenatti had become.

    Anyone who has been alive since September 11, 2001, has to understand what is going on here in the United States. Americans have been duped again and again about the affairs in this country. Americans have been inundated for 17 years by the mainstream media by labeling Muslims as the “terrorists” who were responsible for 9/11, only to find that it is the US representatives, governors, mayors, etc. of this country who have targeted Americans as the “terrorists.” Now, they are openly alluring (legal or not) these same Muslims into America while handing over the country to those who we...

    If you're considering eating raw or undercooked snails, slugs or centipedes — you may want to think again. Some of these delicacies may carry "rat lungworm," a parasite that can infect critters through rodent feces. Here's what you should know about the parasitic roundworm, Angiostrongylus cantonensis, and how it can be avoided. Where is the parasite found? Rodents have the adult form, with sickened rats passing the parasite's larvae in feces, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says online.

    Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee late Saturday released a 414-page report in which the panel members say they found no supporting evidence for any of the allegations of sexual misconduct made against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh ahead of his confirmation. “Committee investigators spoke with 45 individuals and took 25 written statements relating to the various allegations made in the course of the #SCOTUS confirmation process,” the Senate Judiciary Committee tweeted Saturday. “The revelation of last minute allegations tested the committee in many ways. But these investigative efforts rose to the occasion and were critical to helping us obtain...

    "Trump demonizes opponents and gives license to violence." -- Washington Post editorial, 10/25/18 Wait a second! Aren't liberals, like the authors of that Washington Post editorial, fiercely opposed to demonizing political opponents, condemning President Trump for allegedly doing so? But what could be more literally demonizing, and give more "license to violence," than to cast a political opponent, in a term with religious overtones, as "evil?" Yet that is exactly what Howard Dean, appearing on Joy Reid's MSNBC show, did on Saturday morning. Dean cast the battle between Democrats and Republicans as "a struggle about good versus evil. And the...
