    The he Broward school district’s repeated, emphatic — and it turns out, false — statements that Nikolas Cruz had not been in a controversial disciplinary program fit a pattern of an institution on the defensive and under siege. Facing significant legal and political exposure over the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, the district has tried to keep information from the public and put out untrue and misleading statements, frustrating parents who say this is the time for maximum transparency.
  • As It Turns Out, Parkland Shooter WAS Referred To Alternative Discipline Program

    Broward County schools, after over two months of claiming the opposite, admitted on Sunday that confessed Parkland shooter Nikolas Cruz had been referred to the PROMISE Program. The PROMISE Program, an alternative discipline program designed to limit on-campus arrests, has been widely reported as ineffective and corrupt. It has come under intense scrutiny in the weeks since the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, but until Sunday, school officials were still denying that Cruz ever had any connection to that program.

    Critics have slammed Broward County Public Schools Superintendent Robert Runcie all day amid news that — contrary to Runcie's repeated claims — Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooter Nikolas Cruz was involved in the controversial Promise disciplinary program before becoming a mass killer. Now Runcie is pushing back by blaming scattered record-keeping and insisting he gave the best information he had at the time about Cruz's participation in Promise. In a phone interview with New Times this afternoon, the superintendent said the district keeps student data in multiple systems — sometimes only in paper files, which took time to review....

    Sheriff admits Nikolas Cruz was in program that enabled classroom-to-casket pipeline. Florida’s Broward County School District revealed Sunday that Nikolas Cruz, who on February 14 gunned down 17 students and wounded 17 others, was part of the PROMISE program, “Preventing Recidivism through Opportunities, Mentoring, Intervention, Support, and Education.” The “Obama-era program” replaced a zero-tolerance policy with leniency toward student crime.  As district official Tracy Clark told reporters Sunday, Nikolas Cruz was referred to PROMISE in 2013 after he vandalized a bathroom at Westglades Middle School. The district had previously denied that Cruz was part of the program and called such reports...

    Now is not the time for a bunt. This is the time to swing for the bleachers. I was a house painter for many years. In a profession famous for drunks who show up late, finish late, and inflate prices in between, I found that if I did what I said I was going to do when I said I was going to do it for the price agreed upon, I never ran out of work.

    The Bible is the ultimate lesson giver. This is certainly true in the story about Jephthah’s tragic mistake, which confirms Robert Service’s truth: A promise made is a debt unpaid. In Robert Service’s poem, “The Cremation Of Sam McGee,” one line reads, “A promise made is a debt unpaid,” which reminds me of a story told to me by my boyhood best friend and mentor, Jaybird, by far the best storyteller I have ever known. The old black man had a powerful memory, and never forgot any of the Biblical tales read to him by his children or me, and...

    During an interview with New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman, President Barack Obama said that his “absolute commitment” that if Israel were “attacked by any state, that we would stand by them” and that it “should be sufficient” for them “to take advantage of this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity” and accept his Iran nuclear deal as a good step forward. Obama said, “Now, what you might hear from Prime Minister [Benjamin] Netanyahu, which I respect, is the notion, ‘Look, Israel is more vulnerable. We don’t have the luxury of testing these propositions the way you do,’ and I completely understand that. And...

    Texans like to talk all the time about how big Texas is, and how if you´re driving from the bottom of Texas to Canada, then you´re spending half of your time just getting through the state itself. So is that true? It´s pretty close. Texas really is gigantic. Redditor Armeleon put together a map that gives you a good idea of the massive size of Texas. Texas spans about 800 miles from north to south. Everything seen in red on the map is closer than 791 miles to Texas (the longest straight-line distance in Texas from north to south is

It was big, real big, but it fit in all the ways that matter."

    We are told that Obama’s “promise zones” do not violate our Constitution. But no evidence is offered to substantiate that claim. So, let us look at some historical facts which indicate there is a long standing rule which applies to federal spending and it establishes Obama’s “promise zones” are absolutely contrary to the legislative intent and letter of our Constitution. Under Obama’s “promise zones” a number of cities would receive “comprehensive federal assistance” and receive preferential treatment to deal with the financial effects cause by the recession ___ a recession which has cause economic pain in each of the various...

The five zones will be located in San Antonio, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Southeastern Kentucky and the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma. The administration aims to ultimately assist 20 such regions.” Once again our President, instead of adopting national policies removing the iron fist of our federal government from America’s free enterprise system and its businesses...

    Senator Kay Hagen (D., NC) who is up for reelection in 2014 was asked repeatedly about what she knew and when she knew it regarding Obamacare. When asked, “At some point did you know that you couldn’t necessarily keep you policy and still make that claim.” Sen. Hagen dodged this question and any others like it, blaming millions of Americans losing their health insurance on the insurers and not Obamacare. This answer does not sit well with many North Carolinian’s who believe, “basically by implication shouldn’t Senator Hagen somebody who signed the bill herself into law know as well?”

    **SNIP** Landrieu’s bill will allow policyholders to keep their policies for as long as they keep up with payments. The bill would also force insurance companies to disclose how the customer’s current plan is out of compliance with the ACA’s requirements. The bill, sponsored by Sen. Kay Hagan (D-N.C.) and other red-state Democrats, represents a concession of sorts. Hagan faces re-election in 2014 and is currently the target of a television ad campaign blaming her for her support of the ACA. “Obviously it’s not going the way it should and I’m disappointed and I’m frustrated and it’s totally unacceptable because...

"But do you agree it was a wrong move?" "Oh, well, certainly," said Gibbs. "I mean, I don't think anybody dealing with this today finds what was said. Now, I do think some explanation in terms of the fact that policies that were...

    Obama is so honest that even when he lies… it’s only to be honest. Sure Obama lied to Americans… but it was for their own good. He was only lying to Americans in order to keep his promise to them. Dan (Pfeiffer’s crazy spin) on Obama’s now infamous “If you like your plan, you can keep your plan” lie may be more addled than Orwellian. It goes through more contortions than a gymnast falling out of a plane. Plugging in the now familiar claim that the cancelled plans were somehow “substandard”, Dan Pfeiffer tries to argue that Obama had to...

    The president said Wednesday that the notices sent to consumers suggest that they're losing their coverage "somehow because of the Affordable Care Act." He argued, however, that consumers only lost coverage if insurers altered those policies at all after the law took effect. In that case, Mr. Obama said, insurers had to "replace them with quality, comprehensive coverage." "Today that promise means that every plan in the marketplace covers a core set of minimum requirements," he said. Insurers "can't use allergies or pregnancy... or the fact that you're a woman to charge you more." He advised the public, "If you're...

    Remember way back to the 2008 Presidential campaign? Then Senator Obama made a promise, one he repeated over and over for the next few years. Here's a refresher of what he said: "If you’ve got insurance through your employer, you can keep your insurance. We estimate we can cut the average family’s premium by about $2,500 per year. If you don’t have health insurance, then we’re going to provide you the option of buying into the same kind of federal pool that both Sen. McCain and I enjoy as federal employees. We’re going to make sure insurance companies can’t discriminate...
