Why kids can't think

By Jack Hellner


Even though manipulated computer models and predictions of global warming or climate change have been demonstrated to be completely inaccurate, children are taught almost from the womb that the science is settled and that anyone who questions the agenda is stupid and shouldn't be listened to.  No wonder they don't ask any questions.

Kids are also indoctrinated to believe that anyone who wants to require photo IDs to vote is trying to oppress the vote and is a racist.  I wonder why the kids won't question the professor as to why those same people who can't get photo IDs are required to have them for so many other things by the government.The kids are taught that sanctuary cities are good and that people who want to enforce the borders are anti-immigrant, racists, and xenophobes who want to harm women and children who just want to improve their lives.  They should be taught that the U.S is a nation of laws, that politicians should uphold their oath to enforce the laws, and that nations are not nations without borders and laws.

Students are repeatedly taught that capitalism and profits are bad, corporations are greedy, and the rich don't pay their fair share.  They are taught that government is a benevolent entity that helps the poor.  They should be taught that capitalism is what caused the United States to lift people up and that socialism destroys countries and holds people down, such as in Venezuela, Cuba, and the Soviet Union.

They are rarely taught that the main reason for terrorism is that they want to destroy our way of life.  It is not because of climate change, poverty, or lack of education.  The leaders of terrorist organizations are idealists.
Colleges are almost wholly staffed by liberals with a few conservatives sprinkled in.  Conservatives have been blocked frequently from speaking on campus.  That is intentionally keeping alternative views from the students.
The reason students, Democrats, and most reporters don't seem to have any critical thinking ability is because they have been taught that to get along, they must go along.

Fast and Furious report slams Holder, DOJ for deception in gun-running scandal!

Fox News ^ | June 07, 2017 | William LaJeunesse and Andrew O’Reilly 

The House Oversight Committee released a scathing report Wednesday that accuses former Attorney General Eric Holder and his Department of Justice of covering up Operation Fast and Furious and misleading Congress’ investigation into the botched gun-running operation.
The nearly 300-page report states that the Justice Department under Holder actively tried to hide the facts from the loved ones of slain Border Patrol Brian Terry — seeing his family as more of a “nuisance” than one deserving straight answers — and at times being openly hostile to them. […]
The report also says that Holder’s Justice Department stonewalled inquiries from Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, and deceptively told him that the “ATF makes every effort to interdict” firearms purchased by straw buyers. The controversial act of straw purchases — where a person who is prohibited from buying firearms uses another person to buy a gun on his or her behalf — has been a popular method that Mexico’s drug cartels use to obtain guns. …

Study says self-driving cars will create a $7 trillion 'passenger economy'

Mashable ^ | June 3, 2017 | Brett Williams 

The race to create self-driving cars is on—but what happens when they’re everywhere and nobody has to drive?

That could lead to a “passenger economy” worth $7 trillion by 2050, according to a new report by Intel and analyst firm Strategy Analytics.

While the name of the potential new market is lame, the amount of cash it's estimated to drive is not: the study predicts self-driving cars will free up 250 million hours of commuting time per year, providing the backbone for a thriving $800 billion industry by 2035, when the study predicts fully autonomous vehicles will begin to proliferate globally....

Trump's Approval Tops Clinton's 1993 Rating

Newsweek ^ | June 6, 2017 

Trump's approval rating is, at least for the moment, a hair better then where former President Bill Clinton stood at the same point in his first term.

Different polling firms peg Trump at varying levels of approval, but the RealClearPolitics average had him at 39.8 percent Tuesday while the weighted average from FiveThirtyEight had him at exactly 39 percent. Not great numbers, but still better than Clinton. On day 138 of his presidency, just 37.8 percent of Americans approved of the job he was doing, according to FiveThirtyEight. Clinton is, of course, the husband of Trump's Democratic opponent in the 2016 president election, Hillary Clinton.

If you compare where each president stood at this point in the Gallup tracking poll, however, the two are deadlocked. The most recent Gallup survey pegged Trump's approval at 37 percent, the exact same figure the polling firm found for Clinton in early June of 1993. Trump's disapproval rating in the survey was far higher, however, outpacing Clinton—57 percent to 49 percent—in the undesirable measurement.

Democrats' Hoodwinking of Blacks

Townhall.com ^ | June 7, 2017 | Walter E. Williams 


Ask any black person which political party has been black people's political ally. With near unanimity, blacks would answer the Democratic Party. Ask which political party has been hostile to blacks, they'd say the Republican Party with similar unanimity. For better answers, check out Prager University's five-minute clip "The Inconvenient Truth About the Democratic Party," by Carol Swain, professor of political science at Vanderbilt University.
Since its founding in the late 1820s, the Democratic Party has defended slavery, started the Civil War and opposed Reconstruction. The Democratic Party imposed segregation. Its members engaged in the lynchings of blacks and opposed the civil rights acts of the 1950s and '60s. During Reconstruction, hundreds of black men were elected to Southern state legislatures as Republicans, and 22 black Republicans served in the U.S. Congress by 1900. The Democratic Party did not elect a black man to Congress until 1935.
President Woodrow Wilson was a Progressive Democrat and an avowed racist who shared many views with the Ku Klux Klan. He resegregated the federal civil service. He screened the racist film "The Birth of a Nation," originally titled "The Clansman," at the White House; it was the very first movie ever played at the White House.
What was the party of Orval Faubus, the Arkansas governor who blocked the desegregation of Little Rock schools and defied the U.S. Supreme Court's unanimous 1954 Brown v. Board of Education decision? What was the party of Theophilus Eugene Connor, known as Bull Connor, who, as city commissioner, set vicious dogs, fire hoses and billy clubs on black civil rights demonstrators in Birmingham, Alabama? Connor said: "You can never whip these birds if you don't keep you and them separate. I found that out in Birmingham. You've got to keep your white and black separate." If you answered that Faubus and Connor were Democrats, go to the head of the class. By the way, it was Republican President Dwight D. Eisenhower who sent troops to ensure that black students could attend Little Rock's Central High School.
What was the political party of Alabama Gov. George Wallace, who, during the 1960s civil rights movement, declared that he stood for "segregation now, segregation tomorrow and segregation forever" and blocked black students from entering the University of Alabama?
A few years later, the only serious congressional opposition to the landmark Civil Rights Act of 1964 came from Democrats. Eighty percent of Republicans in the House of Representatives supported the bill. Less than 70 percent of Democrats did. Democratic senators, led by ex-Klansman Robert Byrd's 14-hour filibuster, kept the bill tied up for 75 days, until Republicans mustered enough votes to break the filibuster.
Labor unions have always been allied with the Democratic Party and have a history of racism. Most of today's black leaders give unquestioned support to labor unions and their policies that harm black workers, but yesteryear's black leaders saw things differently. Frederick Douglass, in his 1874 essay "The Folly, Tyranny, and Wickedness of Labor Unions," argued that unions were not friends of blacks. W.E.B. Du Bois called unions "the greatest enemy of the black working man." Booker T. Washington also opposed unions because of their adverse impact on blacks.
Today, Democrats use diplomacy to hoodwink blacks. They tell blacks to be against those -- such as Education Secretary Betsy DeVos -- who are for school vouchers that enable black parents to get their children out of rotten schools run by Democrats at the National Education Association. Democrats are using black congressmen to go after Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke, who is a high-profile conservative, champion of law and order, and supporter of President Donald Trump. They view Clarke as a threat to Democratic Party interests. Indeed, if Democrats lost just 25 percent of the black vote, they would be in deep political trouble.
By the way, none of what I've said should be taken as an argument that blacks should rush to become Republicans. I'd like to see the black community acting the way most Japanese and Chinese communities do -- not getting into a tizzy over which political party is in power.

Tired of liberal California? New company will help you move to Texas

The Sacramento Bee ^ | June 5, 2017 | Thomas Oide 

Is California too liberal for you? Would you rather live with like-minded conservatives?

There’s a solution: Move to Texas.

That’s the mission of a new company called “Conservative Move,” a company started last month by Iraq War veteran and former U.S. Congressional candidate Paul Chabot.
In January, Chabot moved from California to North Texas for “a better life for our four young children,” according to Conservative Move’s website. Conservative Move said its focus is on moving families to Collin County, which is just north of Dallas and is one of the “Best of Places to Live” with “great schools, good paying jobs and low crime.”
Chabot said that the website received more than 3,700 visits within four hours of going live....
