Exposed: Chinas covert global radio network This plot is from a James Bond movie!! “In August, foreign ministers from 10 nations blasted China for building artificial islands in the disputed So. China Sea. As media around the world covered the diplomatic clash, a radio station that serves the most powerful city in America had a distinctive take on the news.Located outside Wash D.C., WCRW radio made no mention of China’s provocative island project. Instead, an analyst explained that tensions in the region were due to unnamed “external forces” trying “to insert themselves into this part of the world using false claims.”Behind WCRW’s coverage is a fact that’s never broadcast: The Chinese gov controls much of what airs on the station, which can be heard on Capitol Hill and at the WH…” Do they also own MSNBC, NBC, CBS etc etc.? We want answers!!
Now Background Checks Are Racist? Obama Steps Up Hug-A-Thug Crusade Must Read! “Yes,criminal records might exclude them from jobs. But vetting prospective employees for crimes, as well as credit problems, is essential to the hiring process.Besides determining suitability for employment, it helps protect both employees and customers against theft, embezzlement, fraud and workplace violence. Proper screening procedures also help protect employers from legal liability.Preventing agencies from conducting such criminal background checks on workers in the era of terrorism and hacking will make the gov even more vulnerable to such threats.More than ever, such checks are necessary for maintaining the safety and security of not only personnel but also sensitive data.But as with every issue, our racemonger-in-chief sees only a racial component and charges discrimination, discrimination, discrimination.”
Feds Order School To Allow Transgender Boy In Girls Shower “So the government is now forcing schools to have mixed sex showers available to transgenders-or lose federal funding!! What has happened to common sense, privacy rights of all kids etc etc?”The U.S. Dept of Ed’s Office for Civil Rights has ordered a taxpayer-funded school district in the suburbs of Chicago to allow a male transgender student who dresses like a girl and otherwise identifies as female to use the girls locker room and shower on school premises.Obama’s DOEd which manifestly is not vested with judicial powers has taken to applying Title IX, a comprehensive 1972 fed law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex, to transgender cases.”
Leaked DHS memo shows Obama might circumvent DAPA injunction Obama’s lawlessness is boundless!! “A newly leaked internal DHS memorandum produced for an off-the-record agency conclave reveals that the Obama admin is actively planning to circumvent a fed court injunction that suspended part of last Nov’s deferral-based amnesty initiative. The document, apparently prepared as follow-up from a DHS “Regulations Retreat” last summer, appears sure to re-ignite concerns in Congress as well as federal judges in the Fifth Circuit…Will the 26 plaintiff states that have challenged the President’s DAPA program bring this memo to the Fifth Circuit’s attention, before they issue their closely-awaited decision? If this document is indeed the cutting edge of Obama’s strategy for DHS to circumvent Judge Hanen’s injunction order, it would confirm the Admin’s bad faith and contempt both for the court and the law.
CBS News: ‘Many Hit With Obamacare Sticker Shock’ “The story profiles an accountant whose premiums are jumping by $600 per month over last year’s rates, a 66% increase…he could end up paying $20,000 for healthcare in 2016..The uninsured people ‘most eager to enroll,’ were older, sicker, many with pre-existing conditions. This produced a risk pool more expensive to cover without the younger, healthier enrollees to absorb those increases. .Thus, the coming rate shock.. for consumers within both the indiv. and employer-based markets…About one in 7 health plans offered on the fed market in 2015 did not provide access to in-network docs for at least one med specialty…Overall18 plans in 9 states lacked in-network docs for at least one specialty within a 100-mile search area, and 19 lacked specialists within a 50-mile radius.”
U.N. planning court to judge U.S. for ‘climate justice’ Must Read!! Time to leave the UN!! “At the upcoming UN Climate Summit nations have prepared a treaty that would create an “Int’l Tribunal of Climate Justice” giving Third World countries the power to haul the U.S. into a global court with enforcement powers. Congress would be bypassed by this climate deal, critics say.Policies once left to sovereign nations could be turned over to a U.N. body if the U.S. and its allies approve the proposed deal ..Rucker points out that more than 130 developing nations – “led by S Africa and instigated by China and India” – are insisting they will not sign a climate deal unless it contains massive redistribution of wealth from developed to poor nations.“Now they want the power to haul the U.S. and its allies before a U.N. Star Chamber to enforce compliance,”
Florida House advances term limits proposal for Florida Supreme Court justices, appeals judges
Interesting Idea! “FL Supreme Court justices and District Court of Appeals judges would be limited to two terms in office under a proposed constitutional amendment that gained initial favor from a Florida House committee Tuesday.Rep. John Wood, R-Winter Haven, said term limits for the state’s seven justices and 64 appellate judges would ensure “diversity of legal philosophy,” “enhance the proper role of the judiciary,” and “create a true balance of power” with the Legislature and the governor, which are already subject to term limits…In FL, justices and appeals court judges serve six-year terms. They aren’t re-elected as trial court judges are; rather, they go before voters in an up-or-down vote as to whether they should stay in office.”
NASA says Antarctica is actually gaining ice. Does this mean climate is fine? Whoops!! “A new NASA study found that Antarctica has been adding more ice than it’s been losing, challenging other research, including that of the UN’s IPCC, that concludes that Earth’s southern continent is losing land ice overall… researchers from NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Ctr, the U of Maryland and the engineering firm Sigma Space Corp offer a new analysis of satellite data that show a net gain of 112 billion tons of ice a year from 1992 to 2001 in the Antarctic ice sheet.That gain slowed to 82 billion tons of ice per year between 2003 and 2008…the authors say these findings challenge current explanations for sea level rise…”The good news is that Antarctica is not currently contributing to sea level rise, but is taking 0.23 millimeters per year away,” said Dr. Zwally.”
New revelations: how Kennedy lost the Vietnam War Must Read!! A new book seeks to understand why the US lost the Vietnam war by offering new details into the assass of Pres Diem.. Diem was widely regarded at the time as having what Confucians call “Mandate of Heaven:” a moral and political authority recognized by all Vietnam…However, he was deposed in a military coup ordered by the Kennedy admin and murdered on Nov 2, 1963. “The Lost Mandate of Heaven: The American Betrayal of Ngo Dinh Diem ..disputes long-held assertions that Diem was a tyrant or had lost popular support. Shaw seeks to show..that Diem was a leader of rare integrity and a patriot who sought to free Vietnam from colonialism and preserve it from communism..Adm Poindexter called the book “a remarkable book that finally sets the record straight with copious doc on the assassination of Diem, which was ultimately responsible for our loss of the war. A must read.”
Miami lawmaker signals fading support for special rules for Cuban immigrants “Miami Republican Ileana Ros-Lehtinen has been one of the most stalwart defenders of the Cuban Adjustment Act, but said those who now exploit it by quickly returning to Cuba are “not in fear of persecution” and “should not have the privilege.”Appearing on Facing South Florida with Jim DeFede, which airs Sunday at 8:30 a.m. on CBS4, Ros-Lehtinen said a Sun Sentinel investigation opened her eyes to welfare abuses by recent Cuban arrivals who are collecting U.S. assistance and returning to Cuba.”They’re coming here and they’re taking welfare benefits when they’ve never worked in the United States, they’ve never contributed to the greatness of our nation, and they’re taking their money and going to Cuba,” Ros-Lehtinen told DeFede. “That has got to stop.”
Take the Cities Back from Democrats “The school districts of most big cities are awful, but 2 stand out as utter failures: Cleveland and Detroit. In Cleveland, 90% of students are unable to read “proficiently”; 91% are non-proficient at math. Detroit is even worse: 93% of kids fail at reading and 96% fail at math. It’s staggering. Cleveland has had Dem mayors for the last 25 years. Detroit has had Dem mayors for the last 63 years. It’s hard to imagine that either city could be run worse — but Repubs barely contest mayoral elections in either..No Repub thinks he would have a chance in either city..Repubs (like Dems) are loath to spend their money and candidates on races they don’t expect to win — but given the other side’s pathetic shortcomings, it’s absurd to go on conceding cities: The RNC ought to stop being so damned conservative.” Sounds like they are being realistic!!
Highlights from the 2016 Index of U.S. Military Strength Must Read!!”Russia and China continue to be most worrisome, because of investments they are making in the rapid modernization and expansion of their offensive military capabilities and because of the more enduring effect they are having within their respective regions….N. Korea warrants sustained attention not because it has any substantial ability to deploy conventional combat power against the US directly but because it possesses nuclear weapons capable of reaching U.S. facilities.. Afghanistan/Pakistan-based terrorism holds strong potential to spark a large-scale conflict between Pakistan and India or even to pose a nuclear threat to others should radicalized Islamists gain control of Pakistan’s nuclear arsenal or destabilize Pakistan’s gov resulting in the loss of pos control of Pakistan’s inventory of nuclear weapons.”
Black Voters Want School Choice, More Educational Opportunities, Too “..a new survey released by the Black Alliance for Ed Options (BAEO) conducted in Al, LA, NJ and TN reveals clear support for greater freedom in the K-12 ed system, with a noticeable majority backing ed options in their school dists…More than 90% say a candidate’s views on ed are important to them before they vote; 60% support school vouchers;70% say they support providing parents with more ed choices in their local school districts; The majority of voters surveyed support charter schools — more than 65 percent in LA and TN; 60% and higher say assessment testing is necessary to hold schools accountable; in TN and AL that number increases to nearly 70%. “This study provides an insightful observation on the views of black voters and how they are interested in hearing from candidates who have the most compelling ed reform policies…”
French Mathematicians Blast UN’s ‘Costly & Pointless Crusade’ Against Global Warming Must Read!! “As the UN gears up for its next international conference on climate change in Paris next month, a scathing white paper released by a society of French mathematicians calls its fight against global warming “absurd” and “a costly and pointless crusade”.“You would probably have to go quite a long way back in human…history to find [such a] mad obsession,..” The mathematicians harshly criticized a “crusade [that] has invaded every area of activity and everyone’s thinking,” noting that “the battle [against] CO2 has become a national priority.”How have we reached this point in a country that claims to be rational?” they ask, adding that mathematicians “do not believe in crusades. They look at facts, figures, comments and arguments.”
Florida’s Minority Students Excel in NAEP Scores, But 8th Grade Math Scores Fall “FL’s fourth graders are performing better than the national average on both the reading and mathematics portions of the the NAEP. On the whole, FL’s fourth graders scored slightly higher than the national average on reading levels…FL’s minorities performed at a lower level than white students on the NAEP exam..On top of that, no states scored significantly higher than FL’s African American and Hispanic students, and only three states scored significantly higher overall on grade 4 reading. But when it came to 8th grade math, FL followed a nat’l trend where scores dropped — the first time NAEP math have seen a decrease since the early 1990s.” Could the reason for the fall in math scores be because of the crazy new math they are teaching??
As Crime Spikes, Obama Pushes Police To ‘De-Escalate’ Arrests, Hand Out Ice Cream Under Obama’s plan, the criminal will win and the law-abiding person will lose!! His new policy recommends that cops should give more “voice” to minority suspects, treating them with “dignity and respect,” while checking their own “implicit” cultural and racial biases. In other words, more listening and less cuffing…”To help build that trust, Obama proposed that cops drive ice cream trucks into high-crime areas and hand out free ice cream cones to suspected drug dealers….Emanuel then implored Lynch to back the nation’s police officers.But she and her boss aren’t listening. That’s because Obama is pursuing an agenda broader than policing police for bias.He is trying to federalize policing through new restrictions on investigating and apprehending suspects. His real goal is to reduce the level of incarcerations nationwide.”
