  • Minneapolis Principals Not Allowed to Suspend Black Students, Only White Ones

    The Trumpet ^ | December 18, 2014 | Robert Morley
    The Minneapolis, Minnesota, school system has a big problem. According to Superintendent Bernadeia Johnson and the Justice Department, the vast majority of its 2,300 teachers are racists. To solve this problem, Johnson says the district must implement racism against white and Asian students. It is part of President Barack Obama and the Justice Department’s new protocols to combat racism. But does it really make sense to try to solve a perceived racism problem in teachers by institutionalizing racism against innocent students? Does using racism to solve any kind of problem make sense? Here’s what is happening: Black students in Minneapolis...
  • Texas theater to show “Team America” in place of canceled “Interview”

    Sometimes, you just need Texas. As the rest of the entertainment industry was being brought to its knees by the threat of more hacking and terrorism, a theater in Texas decided to both capitalize on this story and stand up for freedom of speech. The only bummer is they’re holding a free screening, as I’d hoped they’d rake in a bunch of cash for filling a gap in the market, which would be as appropriately American as the statement they’re making about our values. They should be rewarded, and they will be, at least with brand recognition and good will:
  • Ex-Pentagon official Carter emerges as leading contender for secretary (of defense), amid confusion

    Fox News ^ | 12/02/2014 | AP/Fox News
    In typical Washington Beltway form, an unconfirmed news report Tuesday morning that President Obama had picked Ashton Carter to be his defense secretary later was repeated by a top Republican senator to another news agency, which then urgently reported it as fact -- sourcing the senator. What Fox News can report is that Carter is a leading contender to replace Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel. But it's unclear whether he is the final pick, and it appears lawmakers have not yet been notified of his selection. CNN initially reported that Carter, who was deputy Defense secretary from October 2011 to December...

    Chris Rock explained in a lengthy interview Sunday that he believes part of healing racial relations in America is by white people “owning” the actions of their ancestors. The black comedian told New York magazine’s Frank Rich that racial progress in America is “nonsense” and that the only thing that’s changed is white people aren’t as crazy as they used to be. “When we talk about race relations in America or racial progress, it’s all nonsense,” Mr. Rock said. “There are no race relations. White people were crazy. Now they’re not as crazy. To say that black people have made...

The intersection was near where Zemir Begic, a Bosnian man who moved to St. Louis this year, was...

    NEWPORT BEACH – Two people were in the Orange County Jail this week, after police stopped them in a van with automatic rifles and ammunition. The van contained seven AK-47 assault rifles, six 30-round high-capacity 7.62 caliber magazines, two 10-round magazines and more than 350 rounds of 7.62 caliber ammunition inside, Newport Beach police spokeswoman Jennifer Manzella said. Manzella said the arrests are significant because of the weapons seized. All of the guns were modified to fire in fully automatic mode, and one had a barrel less than 16 inches in length in violation of California state law, she said....

Republican state representative candidate Jim Moynihan went to vote Monday at the Schaumburg Public Library. “I tried to cast a vote for myself and instead it cast the vote for my opponent,” Moynihan said. “You could imagine my surprise as the same thing happened with a number of races when I tried to vote for a Republican and the machine registered a vote for a Democrat.”

    If any American soldiers in Liberia contract the deadly Ebola virus, they will be quarantined, stabilized, and evacuated to a medical facility for treatment, said the Ebola mission commander, adding that the U.S. military hospitals that will admit potentially infected troops have not yet been identified. “If, God forbid, one of these soldiers, sailors, airmen, or marine contracted this disease, as I mentioned, they would be stabilized, they would be quarantined, we would go through the appropriate protocols,” Maj. Gen. Darryl Williams, commander of U.S. Army Africa, said on October 16 while briefing reporters in the Pentagon by telephone from...

    Thursday night on Fox News, Charles Krauthammer predicted that it would only take "a couple more cases like Mr. Duncan" flying to the United States from West Africa with Ebola for the president to back down from his no travel ban position. But if Judicial Watch's sources are correct, Obama's open door policy for people coming from Ebola infected countries, may creak open a little wider to allow the transfer of non-US citizens infected with the disease into the country for treatment. It is unclear who would bear the high costs of transporting and treating non-citizen Ebola patients. The plans...

Now investigators say they are looking for the woman's relative, whom they say also filed a fake tax return.

    The Northeast, once the nation’s political engine that produced presidents, House speakers and Senate giants including the late Edward M. Kennedy, is losing clout in Washington as citizens flee the high-tax region, according to experts worried about the trend. The Census Bureau reports that population growth has shifted to the South and the result is that the 11 states that make up the Northeast are being bled dry of representation in Washington. Critics blame rising taxes in states such as Massachusetts and Connecticut for limiting population growth in the Northeast to just 15 percent from 1983 to 2013, while the...

    The White House sent three officials to attend Monday's funeral for Michael Brown in St. Louis -- three more than it sent for former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher's funeral last year. The administration's handling of the Brown funeral already has started to raise comparisons between the two. For Monday's funeral, the White House sent two officials with the White House Office of Public Engagement as well as Broderick Johnson, chairman of the My Brother's Keeper Task Force. No White House officials, though, were part of the presidential delegation sent last year to Thatcher's funeral. For that, the White...

Emergency services spokesman Ashraf al-Qudra said eight people were killed in the strike. Witnesses said a four-storey family home was completely destroyed in a series of air strikes. The airstrike was carried out based on intelligence provided by the Shabak (Israel Security Agency), which led to the identification of two central Hamas figures. Most...

Mohammad Alotaibi, 20, and Ayoub Alawadhi, 21, pulled up to the InterContinental Hotel on East 48th Street on Friday evening with the pressure cookers in their car trunk, said law enforcement sources.

The company will then take the models on the road for riders to try and provide feedback. Harley will use the information to refine the bike, which might not hit the market for several more years.

    <p>A growing consensus of IT experts, outside and inside the government, have figured out a principal reason why the website for Obamacare’s federally-sponsored insurance exchange is crashing. Healthcare.gov forces you to create an account and enter detailed personal information before you can start shopping. This, in turn, creates a massive traffic bottleneck, as the government verifies your information and decides whether or not you’re eligible for subsidies. HHS bureaucrats knew this would make the website run more slowly. But they were more afraid that letting people see the underlying cost of Obamacare’s insurance plans would scare people away.</p>

    Former President George W. Bush is back, popping up on a Minnesota billboard funded by people who aren't happy with the way things are going in Washington. The billboard features a king-sized picture of the former president, with a tagline that reads "Miss me yet?" "It's really got people's attention. It's making them think," said Wyoming Mayor Sheldon Anderson. Anderson, a Republican, says he doesn't know who funded the billboard, but he agrees with it. "I think it's time government stayed out of the pockets of the people and is this billboard getting that message across? I don't know but...

    Washington D.C. October 3, 1863 By the President of the United States of America. A Proclamation. The year that is drawing towards its close, has been filled with the blessings of fruitful fields and healthful skies.

Whether the White House takes her advice, however, is another story. Just this weekend, Senior Adviser David Axelrod charged...
