  • Feds Seek Home Visits, Calling Parents "Equal Partners"

    The New American ^ | Thursday, 11 February 2016 | Alex Newman
    Big Brother wants to be an “equal partner” with American parents in the raising of their own children, starting before they are even born. He wants to send his agents to your house for “home visits,” too. Believe it or not, two powerful arms of Obama administration, the U.S. Department of Education and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), explicitly say so themselves.In a draft policy statement on “family engagement,” the two unconstitutional bureaucracies openly state their joint position: families are “equal partners” in everything from children's “development” and “education” to their “wellness across all settings.” Virtually...

    Two 15-year-old female students were killed in Friday morning's shooting at Independence High School in Glendale, Arizona, police said. Each 10th-grader was found with one gunshot wound outside the building, near the school's cafeteria, Glendale police Officer Tracey Breeden said. A weapon was found near the bodies, Breeden said. When reporters asked whether this was a homicide-suicide or a double suicide, Breeden said she "can't confirm anything," but she said investigators don't believe any shooter is at large.

    Dubbed 'super confessors', for one year only they can absolve sins usually only pardoned by the pope himself. And on Wednesday over 1,000 of these "missionaries of mercy", handpicked by Pope Francis, were sent forth to win back the hearts of those who have left the Catholic Church and open the door to repentant sinners across the world. There are certain evils the Vatican ranks above other sins, from attempting to assassinate the pope to defiling the Eucharist -- the rite of consuming consecrated bread and wine in Church -- by spitting it out or using it in a...

    Former congresswoman Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) recently joined historian David Barton on the show “Foundations of Freedom,” where she spoke out against the progressive income tax system, saying that class warfare rhetoric leads people to “violate the 10th Commandment.” “It’s appealing to the lower interest of man, and it appeals to the American people to violate the 10th Commandment,” Bachmann said. “We are told, ‘Don’t covet’ — in other words don’t be jealous and don’t want what your neighbor has … Instead politicians say, ‘Oh no, no. Your neighbor is rich, because he stole it from you.’” She continued, “That’s not...

A 51-year-old white man told cops he was Nostrand Ave. near Glenwood Road when a black man ran up and knocked him to the ground about 5:40 p.m. Monday. "This is for Malcolm X, cracka," the brute said before storming off. The victim was not injured.

After all, Bill got away with posing as a feminist champion while assaulting, groping, and exploiting women for decades. But when Hillary tries to match Bernie Sanders on a comparable pose as anti-Wall Street, she gets herself in a no-win situation. Goldman Sachs people are leaking out what she said in her $675,000 worth of three paid speeches, and it is now clear that releasing the transcripts of her talks will expose her hypocrisy. But of course, refusing to release them...

    Last month, Americans were treated to the spectacle of our own government executing an American citizen without due process on the side of a public highway in Oregon. There is really no other accurate description to describe the extra-judicial murder of Lavoy Finnicum by agents of the Oregon Highway Patrol, at the behest of the FBI. To begin with, we should understand that pretty much everything the average person heard from the mainstream media about the Malheur refuge "occupation" is wrong. The media loved to describe the events in Oregon as an "armed takeover of a federal building." That way,...

    Apparently liberals on college campuses are not only "triggered" by what they hear from conservatives but even by their silence. "The University of Minnesota's undergraduate student government approved an annual moment of silence to recognize the victims of 9/11, after rejecting a similar proposal earlier this month," the Pioneer Press reported on November 24, 2015. "The vote by the Minnesota Student Association Forum was nearly unanimous, said MSA President Joelle Stangler." "The student government's legislative body approved the measure on a voice vote Tuesday evening, so no actual tally is available. Stangler estimated four or five people voiced opposition." "It...

Dr. Jane Orient tells Breitbart News the major public health measure required to combat the Zika virus pandemic is mosquito control and says, "DDT was the most effective public health weapon of all time." Orient continues: The ban on DDT was basically the decision of one man, William Ruckelshaus, going against a mountain of evidence on safety and enormous health benefits. It was...

    Less than three decades after the fall of the Berlin Wall, socialism seems to be undergoing something of a revival. A self-professed "democratic socialist" is running for the Democratic presidential nomination, and he is running neck and neck with a party icon. Polls show that more than a quarter of Americans have a favorable opinion of socialism, which might not sound so bad until you learn that that includes 43 percent of those under age 30, and 42 percent of Democrats. Meanwhile, barely half of Americans have a favorable view of capitalism. Democrats, in fact, are as likely to view...

    The Maryland Senate narrowly overrode Gov. Larry Hogan's final veto from last year's General Assembly session, paving the way to reinstate voting rights to felons before they complete probation or parole. The 29-18 vote on Tuesday puts the law on the books 30 days from now and represents a political defeat for Hogan, a Republican. The bill was the sixth that Hogan vetoed last year, and the sixth the Democrat-controlled General Assembly reinstated. The vote, twice delayed in order to muster enough support, followed an expansive debate that touched on resolving racial disparities in the criminal justice system and protecting...

No one knows this better than members of the antigun movement and those that support its efforts, including antigun legislators and billionaire globalists, all of whom see, in America's Second Amendment, something incompatible with the new pan-Western ethos. They unabashedly seek not only to repeal the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, but to debase it, to demolish it, to obliterate it.

Edmund Morris said the same thing in Dutch. And Ronald Kessler's In the President's Secret Service reported that "Reagan confided to one agent that on his first presidential trip to the Soviet Union in May 1988, he had...

    Maybe you've heard or read somewhere that all kinds of terrible disasters will happen if the (global mean surface) temperature rises just 2⁰C above the pre-industrial level; according to some datasets, we are already more than halfway there. Further, activists want to lower the threshold to 1.5⁰C -- thus advancing the date of the "apocalypse." Note, however, that these same activists never bother to define "mean temperature" or tell you how to measure it -- if indeed that makes sense. Temperatures vary not only geographically, mainly with latitude and altitude, but also with season, time of day, and weather conditions.

Those 22 emails were deemed so highly secret that State Department officials in this case agreed with the intelligence agencies not to release them even in redacted form.

On Fox News tonight, Megyn Kelly and Howard Kurtz had their doubts about Maddow’s claim she would do the same for Republicans, with Kurtz insisting “she should not have been on that stage.” Kelly, however, pointed out that the RNC has pushed for conservative commentators to co-moderate their debates (i.e....

    While it's not a done deal yet, there's a good chance that we may finally be receiving a final decision from the Supreme Court on the question of so called "assault weapons" bans. Back in December, gun rights activists were largely disappointed when SCOTUS decided they would not hear an appeal to Illinois' assault weapons ban, allowing a lower court ruling in favor of the law to stand. At the time, I speculated that they were waiting for more lower courts to weigh in on similar challenges around the country to see if there was some sort of consensus or...

    Donald Trump, the 2016 GOP presidential frontrunner who's polling ahead of all his opponents here in New Hampshire, told Breitbart News on Friday morning that America is in dire straits if voters don't elect someone president who can get the nation's immigration crisis under control.

Workers of the world: unite behind Bernie! View the video...

Around 250 people were expected to attend the event on Sunday as towns all over Germany celebrate the climax of carnival season.

    Henry George And The Beginnings Of Revolutionary Socialism In The United States.Part two of "Recent American Socialism", by Richard Theodore Ely Henry George's work, "Progress and Poverty," was published in 1879. In 1885, not six years later, it is possible to affirm without hesitation that the appearance of that one book formed a noteworthy epoch in the history of economic thought both in England and America. It is not simply that the treatise itself was an eloquent, impassioned plea for the confiscation of rent for the public good as a means of abolishing economic social evils, but rather that the...
