    Valentine's Day is the first that will pass without notice at Bruce Vento Elementary. Celebrations of Valentine’s Day and the other “dominant holidays” are ending at one St. Paul elementary school, according to a letter from the principal addressed to families. Principal Scott Masini of Bruce Vento Elementary School, whose student body is overwhelmingly nonwhite, explained in the letter that “my personal feeling is we need to find a way to honor and engage in holidays that are inclusive of our student population.” With Valentine’s Day a little more than two weeks away, Masini noted, “I have come to the...

    Beloved detective Nancy Drew is returning to TV - but she'll look different from how fans remember. American network CBS is pledging that the new Nancy Drew won't be white. At the Television Critics Association press previews last week, the head of the CBS entertainment division, Glenn Geller, told reporters his network wanted to focus on diversity, including shows designed around characters who were black and Latino. "We're not casting colour-blind, we're casting colour-conscious," he said.

    A newly-released video shows a professor at the University of California, Merced (UC-Merced) teaching his students that 90 percent of terrorist attacks in America are conducted by white men who are "religiously motivated and politically conservative." WATCHThe video, recorded in October, was released by The College Fix. It shows professor Ross Avila lecturing his "Introduction to Psychology" class on the topic of heuristics, mental shortcuts people use when trying to assess information or solve problems. To illustrate his point, Avila said that most Americans assume Muslims are the country's largest terror threat because they haven't thought about the matter systematically....
  • King: Jesus depictions today further promote a white supremacist agenda

    To be clear, Christmas in the United States, despite the name, has very little to do with Jesus Christ and everything to do with consumerism and gift giving. However, side by side with Easter, it’s also the time when we are most likely to see depictions of Jesus used as tools of white supremacy. In Atlanta, I see them everywhere I go. Jesus as a blond-haired, blue-eyed baby and his blue-eyed supermodel mother are ubiquitous and done without even a slight hint of humor. It's preposterous. It would truly be no different from depicting Christopher Columbus as a dark-skinned African...

    Before we circle back to Hillary's statement on ABC News' This Week, let's lay some groundwork first. During her sworn testimony before the Benghazi Select Committee in October, Hillary Clinton was confronted with evidence that she had a clear-eyed understanding of the nature of those attacks within hours of their occurrence. On the night of the attack, she sent an email to her daughter lamenting that several American "officers were killed in Benghazi by an Al Queda-like group." The next morning, she sent the following assessment to a top Egyptian diplomat: **SNIP** "We know that the lack in Libya had...

    The actor Bryan Cranston is now making the interview rounds promoting his new movie lionizing the Hollywood communist Dalton Trumbo. As one should always expect when the Hollywood left starts talking about the blacklist, the communists were the First Amendment heroes. The movie "Trumbo," Cranston told CNN's Jake Tapper, is about resisting "the lessening of the First Amendment or the oppression of it." Ironically, Cranston said these words at the end of a Nov. 9 program that began with a mob at the University of Missouri driving out a president and a chancellor over wild allegations of racist epithets and...

    The day after the first Democratic presidential debate, Donald Trump called Bernie Sanders a maniac. "This socialist-slash-communist," Trump said to raucous cheers. "I call him a socialist-slash-communist, because that's what he is." Well, no. The terms "socialist" and "communist" are often confused, thanks in large part to the Cold War. Layer on top of that the nuance of the term "democratic socialist," which is how Sanders describes himself, and it's easy to see why people might generally be confused...

    Here's what we know: Julius and Ethel Rosenberg were executed in 1953 for selling U.S. nuclear secrets to the Soviet Union after one of the most sensational Cold War-era espionage trials. They were convicted in 1951 owing, largely, to the testimony of David Greenglass, Ethel Rosenberg's brother. Here's what we don't know: How credible Greenglass' testimony was in court. Greenglass himself spent nearly a decade in prison for his role in the conspiracy. The Army sergeant stole nuclear intelligence from Los Alamos, N.M., and said he passed it on to the Rosenbergs. At the trial, he said Ethel Rosenberg typed...

The tiles were installed more than 90 years ago when stations were adorned with symbols to honor prominent figures in this case, the Tennessee-raised Ochs, who was buried with a Confederate flag after his death in 1935.

    Woodrow Wilson. Here's Why. If you wanted to identify, with confidence, the very worst president in American history, how would you go about it? One approach would be to consult the various academic polls on presidential rankings that have been conducted from time to time since Harvards Arthur M. Schlesinger Sr. pioneered this particular survey scholarship in 1948. Bad idea. Most of those surveys identify Warren G. Harding of Ohio as the worst ever. This is ridiculous.

    Ideology: Bernie Sanders is coming on as a presidential contender, while polls show surprisingly large parts of the public look favorably on the socialism he espouses. The public apparently has forgotten socialism's record. For years, Sanders, an avowed, unapologetic socialist, was viewed as an anomaly of U.S. political life, an eccentric whose atypical ideology reflected the supposed quirkiness of his home state of Vermont. Now that's changed, and with Democrats worried about the scandals surrounding their top candidate, Hillary Clinton, Sanders is attracting ever-bigger audiences on the campaign trail. Polls show him at 15% of the Democratic tally.

    A BBC documentary depicting Winston Churchill as a drunken enemy of the working class has been branded as graceless and ill-informed by his grandson. Churchill: When Britain Said No, broadcast on BBC2 last week, was an account of how the wartime leader lost the 1945 General Election. It showed him as a deeply hated figure among the working class, in part because of the harsh economic policies he pursued as Chancellor in the 1920s. The most vocal critic of Churchill in the programme was a man presented as activist and writer, Dave Douglass. He said of Churchill: His role during...

    A group of students at Los Altos High School want California history textbooks revised, claiming the current textbooks dont tell the whole story. The students claim the version of American history taught in California classrooms is at best incomplete and at worst biased and inaccurate: failing to adequately cover the experiences, accomplishments and frequent mistreatment of communities of color and women. Theres definitely value at looking at the good things we have done, theres definitely value at being proud of those things, and theres even more value in acknowledging what we havent done correctly, one of the students said.

    image: http://fitsnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/08/len-anthony-100x100.jpg || By LEN ANTHONY || In 2012 after a forty-year hiatus from attending church I decided to give it another try. At the beginning of the sermon on my first Sunday back in a pew the pastor said we here at the Antioch Church (not the real name of the church) believe the Bible is the true, inerrant word of God. That struck me as odd. Modern physics, anthropology, archeology and DNA mapping, etc. make it clear that portions of the Bible are not true.
  • The Blessed Virgin Mary and the Catholic Discovery of America(Catholic Caucus)

    It must seem strange to associate the Blessed Virgin Mary and the discovery of America. What makes the subject strange is that most people think of the discovery of the New World in geographic terms. In 1492, an Italian navigator by the name of Christopher Columbus sailed from Spain in search of the Indies and landed in what we now call Central America. his motives, we are told, were economic and psychological. He was looking for the riches of the Orient to extend the political power of the Spanish monarchy. And he sought the very human glory that he was...

    Pope Francis weighed in on a thorny topic in California history Saturday when he spoke at length at a Rome Mass about Father Junipero Serra, the controversial California mission founder set to become America's first Latino saint later this year. Addressing an audience that included many American priests, including Los Angeles Archbishop Jose H. Gomez, the pope referred to the 18th century Franciscan priest as one of the founding fathers of the United States and praised his willingness to abandon the comforts and privileges of his native Spain to spread the Christian message in the New World. I wonder if...

    For Obama, it's never enough to greet Jews as Jews. He has to turn Pesach (Passover) into a black holiday (if you missed it, follow the link to Weasel Zippers and he has it highlighted). He did the same thing in his post-Seder message. For the seventh year in a row, President and Mrs. Obama hosted the annual White House Seder. The Seder provides an opportunity for the First Family to join in retelling the story of the Israelites arduous journey through the desert from slavery in Egypt to liberation in the Promised Land. In recounting the story, they joined...

    Jesus Christ was not a real person and is probably the result of a combination of stories about several different individuals, according to a writer and leading atheist activist. David Fitzgerald, a San Francisco based author, believes he has compiled compelling evidence that proves Jesus did not exist. He claims there are no contemporary mentions of Jesus in historical accounts from the time when he was supposed to have lived, yet other Jewish sect leaders from the time do appear.
  • Criticize Senator Ted Cruzs bid for Republican nomination

    03/30/2015 11:09:40 PM PDT · by 2ndDivisionVet · 36 replies
    Texas Senator Ted Cruz set off a media firestorm last week by becoming the first to announce his candidacy for the Republican nomination in 2016. The media has generally described Cruz as a passionate, hard-line conservative and a polarizing figure. Writing for Fox News, Michael Goodwin argued that Cruz has a chance at becoming our next president, calling him a brilliant man of clear conservative convictions, not muddled by the politics of calculation. Its a nice sentiment, but it also effectively illustrates the underlying problem with candidates like Cruz and with our political system in general: being muddled by a...

  • Did the Catholic Church really support the Divine Right of Kings?

    Refuting the Belief that the Catholic Church ever supported the notion of the Divine Right of KingsI this article I will help to refute the false belief that the Catholic Church ever supported the so called Divine Right of kings. I will show that the concept of Divine Right is actually not a Catholic and for most part a medieval concept, but rather a concept which derived from the Late medieval ages, and which found its way into complete acceptance in the Protestant Reformation. Similarly I will show that to much extent the Catholic Church actually helped develop much of...
