  • Amnesty: the audaciousness of Obama

    How long has Congress been mulling over some sort of amnesty plan for illegal immigrants? A long time, certainly under several presidents, whether it’s called “amnesty” or whether euphemisms are used to substitute for the word. But there’s a reason Congress hasn’t done much about it in a long time, and that’s because the American people don’t want it and Congress is at least somewhat responsive to the people, despite the fact that many politicians and those who give them money are more interested in amnesty than the general public is. Presidents have understand that, too, and have also understood...

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl's attorney, Eugene Fidell, has apparently been retained to launch a hyper-partisan political campaign against Fox News. The Army has not charged Bergdahl with anything. According to some news reports, the Army hasn't even begun investigating Bergdahl. Nonetheless, one of Fidell's first media appearances was with the Huffington Post where he vilified Fox News for vilifying his client: “It’s very unfortunate that Fox News has an opportunity to use this case in an effort to stir up the base, use this in an effort to vilify my client, who everybody knows has gone through a terrible five-year long...

    Sixty years ago, Benjamin Bloom came up with what he said was a superior way to categorize educational goals and activities. The Taxonomy was famous for reducing everything to six steps: remembering; understanding; applying; analyzing; evaluating; creating. Note that "remembering" (or "knowing") is the first and LOWEST step. Bloom concocted this taxonomy to describe education at the college level. College professors, however, ignored the Taxonomy. Meanwhile, the people in charge of our public schools put this thing on a pedestal. Why? Because the Taxonomy scorned what had always been considered the most important step: knowing information. Bloom and his Taxonomy...

    When you look back at New Math (ca. 1965) and Reform Math (ca. 1990), one of the most striking and persistent features was that parents could not understand the homework which their children brought home. Mystified parents were trying to advise mystified children. The parents, presumably the wise members of the society, were helpless to say anything useful when confronted by the weird complexities of “reform” math, which has now been rolled forward into Common Core. Here is a commonplace horror story that can stand in for millions of others: “When Mike and Camille Chudzinski tried to help their son...

    Two years ago, Barack Obama infamously emphasized skin color above all other factors in his remarks about a boiling controversy, saying, “…my main message is to the parents of Trayvon Martin. You know, if I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon.” Obama did the same thing again over a year later, immediately after the jury found George Zimmerman not guilty in that case–barging in front of the cameras for the explicit purpose of emphasizing skin color (instead of character and conduct) regarding issues of crime, justice, and public safety, Obama self-righteously prattled on for over 17 minutes in a...

    It's been almost comical to watch the liberal sports media's obvious arousal over what they deem the heroic effort by the Northwestern football team to unionize. I say almost comical because this effort is something that could change the face of college athletics forever, and not necessarily for the good either. It is also based on a fundamental flaw. And as is the case with liberals in general, the MSNBC wannabes at ESPN - and other outlets - have no situational awareness of the potential unintended consequences if this is successful.

     [SUMMARY: Constructivism says teachers must teach less.]  It was the first premise of all schools throughout history: students would be educated by people who were themselves already educated. A biology teacher had to be an expert in biology; a history teacher must know history to teach history. Who would question the wisdom of these statements? This country’s Education Establishment now preaches a contrary view. Students must not be told that 2+3 = 5; this is not “authentic learning.” Essentially, teachers should stop teaching. The theory, generally called Constructivism or Discovery, requires that students (typically working in groups) construct knowledge for themselves.  This approach...

    Never mind the "fiscal cliff." America went bankrupt, technically, at midnight on December 31, 2012. We hit the debt ceiling of $16.394 trillion. Yet the U.S. government needs to borrow more money than is legally allowed. So Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner is now juggling federal accounts via questionable extraordinary measures to squeeze out perhaps two more months. Uncle Sam has maxed out his credit cards. More than ever before, America now faces national ruin unless political leaders cut federal spending. However, Washington no longer understands what budget cuts are.

    One week before the presidential election, a Congressional committee released Obama administration emails that showed a pattern of political pressure from President Barack Obama and others in his administration. The emails indicate favoritism toward Democrat politicians and donors in the awarding of federal energy loans. The mainstream media chose not to report on the emails, even though just days before their release, Obama had flatly stated in an interview that politics played no part in awarding the loans. In the old days of hard-nosed journalism, i.e., before the Age of Obama, if the president was caught lying about his involvement...

Consider: during the Republican primary season, half of Mitt Romney's consultants told him to call Newt Gingrich the devil. The other half told him to merely to claim that the devil worshiped Gingrich. Then these same sorcerers all told Mitt to call Barack Obama "a nice guy." Well, gee, what could...

    ...what the voters are craving in the debates and on the stump is someone who can look liberals squarely in the eye and tell them why we are right and they are wrong. The American conservative base has had to put up with being called stupid, racist, greedy and unfair for decades by not only the Democrats but the vast majority of the media. The pent up frustration of these decades is magnified by the fact that George H. W. Bush, Bob Dole, George W. Bush and John McCain would not or perhaps could not confront this. In fact, rare...

    Note by Kristinn: AFP/ Getty Images took the photo so it can't be posted here. Click the source link to view the photo of a bald (skinhead) man at a Romney-Ryan rally in Lancaster, Ohio today. The man is wearing a black t-shirt with large white all-capitalized letters emblazoned on the back that says, "Put the white back in the White House."To make sure, the man placed a Romney-Ryan sticker at the top of the back of the t-shirt. By coincidence, a wire service photographer just happened to be in a position to take his picture.Media photographers will usually ask...

    www.FinancialSurvivalNetwork.com presents Ty Andros and I wrap-up the week and discuss the serious situation in Europe, especially Spain. A former partner of mine who worked for a large telecom company always used to state, "The situation is hopeless, but never serious." But for Europe and the US it often appears hopeless and extremely serious. But, perhaps the "geniuses" that reside at the Fed and the European Central Bank will find a way out. That hasn't happened yet, and we're extremely skeptical that it will happen now, which means, it's inflate or die. The problem with this approach is that it...

  • An Open Letter to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu

    Dear Prime Minister Netanyahu, It’s been almost one year ago since I last wrote you an open letter like this. I just want to let you know that most Americans agree with your assessment on Iran and the consequences to both Israel and America if those savages procure nuclear weapons. In a peculiar way, a large number of us look to you, as opposed to the current President of the United States as our legitimate leader in these perilous times. We have much more in common since our nation was founded upon the belief that there is ONE God, the...
