America is a Racist Nation According to Common Core Lesson
The United States Constitution gives no authority to the federal government over education. In fact, since education is not listed as an enumerated power within the authority of the federal government, by law, the authority of education is left in the hands of state and local governments. But, that has not stopped the federal government from attempting to get their grubby hands all over the education of youth.
Ever since the establishment of the Department of Education by then President Jimmy Carter, we have witnessed states scrambling to meet the requirements as set forth by the feds. Republican presidents have even infringed on the state’s authority over education. A prime example is George W. Bush’s ‘No Child Left Behind’ law.
Bundy Critics versus How The West Was Won
Even among some Tea Party types, there are voices who are saying Cliven Bundy is just a free-loading, renegade rancher who should have been paying the fees to the feds for these last couple of decades, for his herds’ foraging around on “federal lands.” They say Bundy is flat-out wrong in the showdown with the Bureau of Land Management. Such commenters miss an all-important point when arguing about who really owns the Nevada territory in question, who has jurisdiction over it, the right to use it, to demand payment for use, and so on.
In the paragraphs which follow, I will lay out the case that although might does not necessarily make “right,” the prevalence of stealth and superior physical force in acquiring, administering, and defending territory is and has always been the way of the world since time immemorial. To think that preceding tribal prerogatives, treaties, or modern legal arguments can or will ever change this fact is quite naive.
Let the Freak Show Begin: America’s First Wedded Lesbian Trio
The world’s only ‘married’ lesbian threesome are expecting their first child.
Doll, Kitten and Brynn, from Massachusetts, were joined together in a marriage-style ceremony last August and are expecting a daughter in July.
Kitten, 27, is pregnant after undergoing IVF treatment using an anonymous sperm donor, and the trio eventually plan to have three children – one for each of them.
The plan at the moment is that Kitten will bear all the children – possibly using her wives’ eggs and donated sperm – but they are open to other options, such as adoption.
Brynn, 34, says: ‘The hope is to have three kids altogether. We always joke that the children should never outnumber the parents.
Another Power Play: Obama Seeks to Confiscate All Apache Helicopters from National Guard
According to reports, the Army National Guard is pushing back against a plan to send every one of its 192 Apache attack helicopters to the active duty Army. Some may think this is no big deal. However, this is coming from an administration that loathes the military and wants to weaken America to the point that it cannot defend herself. The trade would replace the Guard’s attack helicopters with 111 UH-60 Black Hawks, basically transport and utility helicopters. This trade comes amid claims that there are deep budget cuts, according to Obama’s own sequestration. Make no mistake, this is an attack on the Second Amendment.
The BLM Land Grabbing Endgame and Agenda 21
Why is the federal government so obsessed with grabbing more land? After all, the federal government already owns more than 40 percent of the land in 9 different U.S. states. Why are federal bureaucrats so determined to grab even more? Well, the truth is that this all becomes much clearer once you understand that there is a very twisted philosophy behind what they are doing. It is commonly known as “Agenda 21″, although many names and labels are used for this particular philosophy. Basically, those that hold to this form of radical environmentalism believe that humanity is utterly destroying the planet, and therefore the goal should be to create a world where literally everything that we do is tightly monitored and controlled by control freak bureaucrats in the name of “sustainable development”. In their vision of the future, the human population will be greatly reduced and human activity will be limited to strictly regulated urban areas and travel corridors. The rest of the planet will be left to nature. To achieve this goal, a massive transfer of land from private landowners to the federal government will be necessary.
Wayne (“Trapper John”) Rogers Whacks the Media: They’re ‘Constipated by Their Own Ideology’
It’s no secret that most Hollywood celebrities are enthusiastic supporters of President Obama and his liberal policies, but on Fox’s Cashin’ In on Saturday, 1970s M*A*S*H star Wayne (“Trapper John”) Rogers, now a successful businessman and investor, tore into the news media for shielding the President.
Host Eric Bolling set up the moment by listing miserable economic indicators such as the high poverty rate, low employment participation rate and record number of people on food stamps, then asked Rogers to explain: “How is this President held in such high esteem by the Left?” [Rogers' answer and the video after the jump.]
RAF Jet Chases Russian Planes Away From UK
