Parents Angry – Planned Parenthood Allowed to Teach Sex Ed at High School

Genderbread person

Parents of students at a Northern California high school are fuming over the content and presenters of the sex education class offered.

It is being reported that students at Acalanes High School were treated to messaging on sex presented not by their teachers – or any teachers from the school – but by the staff of a nearby Planned Parenthood – the leader in the abortion industry.

Genderbread personStudents at one northern California high school are learning more than just the birds and the bees.

Along with local area groups, some parents are irate that their children’s sex ed class at Acalanes High School in Lafayette is being taught by employees of Planned Parenthood without their prior knowledge. They are also fuming over the methods and materials being used, including a checklist that asks students if they are “ready for sex” and another worksheet that describes how to give and obtain consent, as well as a diagram that uses a “genderbread” person for lessons in gender identity.

The idea that their children are being taught “responsible” sexual practices by an organization that generates significant revenue from performing abortions on promiscuous teens is angrying parents.

Acalanes Union School District officials told the institute the class was not taught by teachers but rather the staff from a local Planned Parenthood in nearby Walnut Creek.

 

Report: Black Militants ‘Preparing to Shoot On-Duty Police Officers’

NYPD Officers

The New York Daily News is reporting that a black militant group is planning to shoot New York police officers.

An undercover NYPD cop learned of the hit put out on officers Friday evening — three days after a Staten Island grand jury decided not to indict Officer Daniel Pantaleo in Garner’s death. Mullins confirmed late Saturday night that the gang was gunning for officers.

Union leaders ordered all officers, on duty and off, to take extra precautions.

“Please WEAR your VESTS and carry your firearm off-duty along with additional magazines,”  Mullins said in an alert. “Your priority is to go home at the end of your tour!”

Black militants preparing to shoot NYPD officers

It is unclear whether the threat is tied directly to the Garner verdict or due to rising hostility in the black community towards police.

During the Ferguson protests, Michael Brown’s step-father ratcheted up tensions when he told the crowd to “burn this bitch down!” Shortly afterward, several local businesses were looted and/or burned down.

The Black Guerrilla Family is a militant prison and street gang also known as Black Family and Black Vanguard. The group is an “ideological African-American Marxist revolutionary organization composed of prisoners.”[2] Which would indicate a propensity towards crime and violence.

Louisiana Sen. Mary Landrieu Loses Re-Election Bid

Mary Landrieu

Mary LandrieuLousiana democrat Senator Mary Landrieu lost her bid for re-election on Saturday.

Challenger Rep. Bill Cassidy(R) ousted Landrieu by a 56% to 44% vote margin in a run-off election.

Landrieu had trailed Cassidy significantly in recent polls and the Democrat campaigning machine had largely abandoned her despite her 34 year tenure as Senator.

Landrieu had been touting her seniority in the Senate as a benefit to the state of Louisiana. She had managed to get a floor vote on the Keystone XL pipeline but was unable to muster the one additional democrat vote needed to get it passed.

The democrat loss in Louisiana finishes a long string of losses for liberals in the senate during the 2014 mid-term elections.

Times are tough – Obama causes drastic increases in electricity bills

Barack Obama

While Obama and his loyal media tell America that the recovery is in full-swing, the rest of the nation is about to suffer another blow as the president’s energy policy causes catastrophic changes to the electricity generation industry.

According to a Fox News report:

The energy industry and coal-producing states are projecting a wave of power plant closures in the final two years of the Obama administration as Environmental Protection Agency regulations take hold.

The goal of the agency’s campaign is to cut down on carbon pollution. However, industry groups and agencies say the EPA’s demands are simply too difficult to meet and will lead to powering down many facilities — eliminating hundreds of jobs and hurting cash-strapped state economies.

In a continuing effort to pander to the whining left and live up to a pre-election promise, Obama is making sure that energy costs “necessarily skyrocket” as a way to magically make his failing green-energy investments pay off.

Solyndra was just a canary in the coal mine (how ironic that phrase is now.) The entire green energy play is too expensive for the typically American family to afford and company-after-company simply folds up after sucking in millions, or billions of taxpayer dollars.

Many Americans are living paycheck-to-paycheck as energy prices affect grocery bills, transportation costs, heating bills and just about everything else.

The President wants to make energy more expensive – at whose cost?

Ferguson Prosecutor: Officer Wilson Will Not Be Indicted

Michael Brown

Monday night, Ferguson, Missouri Prosecutor Bob McCulloch announced that the Grand Jury looking into the evidence of the Michael Brown shooting had found no probable cause to try Officer Wilson for any crime.

In a press conference beginning at approximately 8:14pm Central Time, Mr. McCulloch began by pledging his sympathy to the Brown family for their loss. McCulloch then painstakingly described the process that the grand jury undertook to come to its decision.

Revealing a flurry of competing witness accounts, changing witness testimony and witness accounts that simply did not line up with the physical evidence, the prosecutor outlined the evidence that was reviewed by the grand jury.

In response to the decision, the Brown family commented that they were “profoundly disappointed” with the outcome.

Despite the urging of the media present  at the announcement, Mr. McCulloch refused to release the vote count or more detailed demographics of the grand jury saying that the process is secretive by design and that he was not privy to the vote count nor is the grand jury allowed to release the final count.

The prosecutor also confirmed that testimony and evidence will be released to the public for their review.

The grand jury could have chosen to indict Officer Wilson on any of five counts ranging from murder in the first degree to manslaughter. The jurors found no evidence pointing to criminal behavior by the officer.

GOP: Obama Genius for bringing in Biden as VP

800px-Joe_Biden_-_World_Economic_Forum_Annual_Meeting_Davos_2005_Portrait

Republicans are pointing at scandal after scandal and many unconstitutional actions on the part of President Obama as reasons he could be impeached. But, they won’t, and some have come out and said that Vice President Biden is the insurance policy keeping Obama in the White House that keeps them at bay.

800px-Joe_Biden_-_World_Economic_Forum_Annual_Meeting_Davos_2005_PortraitIn an interview with Fox News, Rep. Tray Gowdy (R-SC) asked ‘Have you met Joe Biden?’ when asked why the Republicans haven’t offered articles of impeachment against the President.

It would appear that any candidate for President that intends to work outside the limits of the Constitution should first find an inept, but electable, court jester.. ahem.. Vice President. Then, make sure he does things like tell the public to shoot double-barreled shotguns through doors, say that Conservatives behave like terrorists, and so much more.

For the first time, America may have its answer to the obvious question:

Q: why hasn’t Obama been impeached?

A: “Have you met Joe Biden?”

Ebola Update 10-16-14

Ebola Virus

Ebola_virus_em

 

The Ebola virus in the United States seems far beyond the control of the Obama Administration’s Centers for Disease Control and so far, health care workers and the economy seem to be taking the punishment for it.

On NBC’s “Today Show” this morning, Texas Presbyterian Nurse Briana Aguirre told host Matt Lauer that she watched fellow healthcare workers “violate basic principles of nursing” and that the hospital had not provided any protocols on the handling of an Ebola patient. When they contacted the hospital’s infectious disease control office to ask what the protocols were, Briana said, they were told that “they didn’t know” and would have to get back to them.

Aguirre went on to say that the protective gear that they were given did not fully cover their exposed skin leaving their necks entirely vulnerable to splashes of bodily fluids.

For months Americans have been told by the President and his head of the CDC, Dr. Tom Frieden, that there were procedures in place and that the healthcare system and the CDC were ready to deal with Ebola cases – the public is struggling to believe them.

Just last week Dr. Frieden blamed nurses for failing to follow protocol. Listening to Nurse Aguirre’s interview this morning, it would appear as though protocols and equipment were neither in place nor trained upon.

Now, the CDC has instituted rapid response teams to fly out to hospitals where an Ebola case is suspected. With recent events, it may be too little, too late.

Two nurses have since been diagnosed with Ebola. Nina Pham and Amber Vinson. Both were exposed to Mr. Duncan, the Ebola patient at Texas Hospital that flew into the United States with the infection.

Nina was quarantined, but Amber was allowed by the CDC to fly on a commercial airliner after she contacted them to inform them that she had a fever – the first sign of an infection. The CDC is now frantically searching for all 132 people on that shared that flight with her.

Even the economy is not immune to this highly-infectious killer. While Europe’s debt issues and widespread deflation are one aspect, Ebola fears are helping to push the stock market into free-fall.

Since the CDC first confirmed the first U.S. case on September 30th, the DOW has lost about 900 points – over 5% of it’s value just.. gone. Today’s DOW futures show another 200+ point drop in the offering at open.

Airline stocks have been hammered despite rapidly dropping oil prices. Fuel is a huge input costs and a main driver of ticket prices. Investors expect a massive drop in people willing to fly due to the spread of the disease. The CDC allowing an Ebola-exposed nurse with a fever fly may just make that come true.

As Ebola fear escalates in the country, investors are concerned that people will avoid crowds like those at stores, malls, restaurants and tourist destinations. With the holiday shopping season just beginning to kick-up, the timing could be catastrophic for the American economy especially after the disappointing retail sales numbers from last month.

The only portions of the economy that seems to be getting a lift from the outbreak are retailers that sell biohazard suits, masks, prepping supplies, guns and ammo.

What is Khorasan

Al-Fadhli

It appears that U.S. officials are taking a new terror group more seriously as a U.S.-led set of airstrikes hit ISIS and Khorasan Group targets in Syria this morning.

Khorasan is a jihadist group born of Al Queda leadership that has a similar, yet competing goal, as ISIS. The Khorasan Group desires the recreation of the ancient Persian province that once held the same name while ISIS is attempting to create a global Islamic state or Caliphate starting with the overthrow of Syria’s Asad and the government in Iraq.

Al-Fadhli

Al-Fadhli

Khorasan is headed by Muhsin al-Fadhli, who was the leader of Al Queda in Iran while it’s former head was detained by Iranian authorities.

Al-Fadhli moved to Syria after a re-shuffling of Al-Queda leadership where he has pulled together a group of Al-Queda members from across the globe – including Europe and the United States.

He was later joined by a group of Al Queda members including  logistics expert Abd Al-Rahman Muhammad al Juhni. Al Juhni was a senior member of Al Queda in Pakistan and specialized in running the courier network and moving money around.

Fadhli seems disinterested in the outcome of the Syrian conflict and may only be based there to hide under the confusion of the Syrian civil war while he completes the planning phase for Khorasan – a phase intelligence experts say is very near completion.

The Khorasan plans are reported to be focused on attacks on U.S. and European soil. These attacks would most-likely be carried out by home grown terrorists recruited by Khorasan’s significant and effective social media efforts.

U.S. officials pointed at an imminent threat of terrorist attacks on the United States as partial justification for the airstrikes on Syria that began this morning. Whether Al Fadhli and his Khorasan Group associates have been nuetralized by today’s strikes is currently unknown.

 

Airstrikes Begin in Syria

The airstrikes hit 14 ISIS and Khorasan targets in Syria including command and control centers, supply caches and training facilities.

Aircraft from five Arab nations reportedly assisted with the strikes, but no European allies were involved.

The air assault began with cruise missiles, bombers, predator/reaper UAVs and fighter aircraft targeting the ISIS stronghold of Raqqa, Syria early on Tuesday.

U.S. officials said planes from Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Jordan, Bahrain and Qatar were also involved in the mission.

Whitehouse Fence-Jumper Reportedly on Anti-Depressents

washington-dc-white-house-s

white houseOmar Gonzalez hopped the White House grounds fence, got into the building and reportedly even gained access to the Presidential Residence before Secret Service agents were able to stop him. What the reports downplay is that Omar was probably on anti-psychotic medications – just like several other recently dangerous events.

Mr. Gonzalez, 42, served his county in the U.S. Army from 1997 until medical retirement in 2008. While the Army won’t share member’s reasons for leaving the service, Omar’s wife did.

Omar’s ex-wife says he was medically retired due to plantar fasciitis (a foot disorder) and that he suffered from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). His ex-wife also confirmed that Omar had been prescribed medications for PTSD.

Traumatic events affect people in different ways. Some can wall-off the event(s) and carry on. Others are affected by the event(s) for long periods of time. For those haunted by past events, medications are often prescribed.

The most common medicines offered are SSRI’s, or,  Selective Seratonin Reuptake Inhibitors. These are considered anti-depression medications.

What’s odd is how much the reports downplay the condition and the medication. While PTSD can often be treated with therapy and support, the rapid increase in the use of anti-psychotic drugs to treat conditions like PTSD and ADD is alarming.

This fence-jumping event is just the latest high-profile event to feature someone on anti-depressants. Columbine, Sandy Hook, the Navy Yard, the Aurora theater shooting, and many many more all were performed by men on anti-psychotic meds.

Recent reports have demonstrated that anti-psychotic medications re-arrange the brain’s architecture almost immediately. What could go wrong?

A single dose of a popular class of psychiatric drug used to treat depression can alter the brain’s architecture within hours. – The New York Times

Most Americans could not even fathom how they or a family member might react if their brain chemistry was suddenly altered. Pushing it on war veterans and troubled teens may not be all that responsible and worse, could be a factor in recent high-profile violence.

At some point, our leaders need to consider the role anti-psychotics play in violent events – so why don’t they?

Congressional members and the President are heavily lobbied by drug makers. Anti-psychotic drugs are a huge boon to drug-maker’s bottom lines. The math is not that hard.

Fox Outsmarts PC – Be Offensive, Get Banned, Get Paid

Poor, poor California just doesn’t get it, but Fox does

Fox has a brand new hospital drama coming out and to promote it they used characterizations of Octavia Spencer’s character to advertise the new show.

Buses throughout the the Los Angeles area had been painted with advertisements for the new Fox show, Red Band Society, that referred to the starlet as “scary bitch” just as the show will.

Not surprisingly, Los Angeles residents found it offensive and complained to city transportation officials.

Due to the public outcry, city officials confirmed that they would be removing the advertisements, but no time frame was offered.

Fox is now getting coverage in every newspaper, news show, online site, blog and entertainment magazine you can imagine.

I personally pat Fox on the back for using political correctness to its advantage. Honestly, had you heard of this TV show before the “scandal?”

 

AT Publishes A New Article Against Free Trade

The American Thinker, a conservative e-zin, has just published a new article whose author speaks out against suicidal “free trade” policies.

Predictably, a large number of pro-Fortune 100 shills flocked to the comments section and began peddling the Fortune 100’s corporate myths about why free trade, and in particular, trading with countries that cheat on the US, supposedly benefits America.

They falsely claim that:

a) trading with dishonest, cheating “trade partners” somehow benefits America and all parties involved;

b) jobs lost to these countries (shipped overseas by multinational corporations to countries where people work for slave wages and where labor, environmental, and construction regulations don’t exist) are somehow magically replaced with new, better-paying ones (the theory of “Creative Destruction”);

c) protectionism has failed, while “free trade” produces prosperity; and

d) protecting the US economy against unfair, dishonest foreign competition is a Big Government/socialist/crony capitalist policy and a violation of of the traditional conservative free market philosophy.

All of their claims are blatant lies. There isn’t a single shred of evidence supporting them.

Let’s start with myths a) and c).

It is “free trade” that has failed abysmally, while protectionism – protecting America’s industrial base – allowed the US to transform itself from a handful of states on the East Coast to the biggest industrial powerhouse in the world.

It is protectionism that allows countries to prosper and become economically powerful, while free trade is an economically suicidal policy. History provides irrefutable evidence of this.

EVERY country which ever became an economic power became one by protecting and actively supporting its industrial base: England under the Acts of Navigation and through the early 19th century, France under Colbert and Napoleon, Prussia under the Customs Union, unified Germany under Bismarck, the US from the 1860s to the 1960s, Japan since the 1850s, and China today.

Protectionism is the policy of ASCENDANT economic powers; free trade, the policy of descendant ones.

Trade surpluses add to GDP; trade deficits substract from it.

Just recently, France’s statistical office, INSEE, announced that the French economy grew by 0% in the 2nd quarter of 2014 – partly due to a large and persistent trade deficit, and partly due to low consumption and investment spending by consumers and entrepreneurs.

And the US, by trading with utterly dishonest, cheating partners, such as China, Japan, and Mexico, has amassed far, far greater trade deficits than France – deficits which helped cause the Great Recession and have prevented America’s recovery.

Trade surpluses add to GDP; trade deficits substract from it.

When a country exports goods or services (i.e. sells them abroad), it earns wealth at the expense of the importing country. Money is transferred out of the economy that imported the good or service in question, and to the economy that exported it. Thus, the exporting country’s economy grows.

More exports = more income.

But when a country imports goods or services (i.e. buys them from abroad), its wealth shrinks in order to pay the exporting country for the imported good or service. Money is again transferred out of the economy that imported the good or service in question, and to the economy that exported it. Thus, the exporting country’s economy grows – and that of the importing country shrinks.

There is no free lunch.

And trade with Third World countries that cheat on the US and suck American factories and jobs out of the US economy MOST CERTAINLY doesn’t benefit the US.

Since the passage of NAFTA in 1993, the US economy has lost 6 million well-paying manufacturing jobs and over 55,000 factories, not replaced by anything and never returning. Thousands and thousands of towns across America, such as Martinsville, VA, have literally been killed by free trade. Those 6 million Americans thrown out of work by companies outsourcing jobs are now permanently unemployed or forced to do poorly-paying jobs, either way ending up on the taxpayer’s dole, thus growing the federal, state, and city budget deficits.

Poor Americans and the middle class have not seen ANY real (after-inflation) wage increase, or increase in the median income, since the early 1970s.

Meanwhile, American shops, supermarkets, and department stores like Walmart have been flooded with cheap, dangerous crap from China and other Third World countries that breaks up the moment it is first used and contains poisonous elements such as lead.

Bikes that break up quickly, lead-painted toys, melamine-contaminated food – this is what the US consumer is now forced to buy, because the American makers of these goods are either undercut by the dumping practices of foreign consumers or have already been forced out of business.

The US, formerly the world’s largest industrial powerhouse, is now dependent on even the basic necessities of life.

No, free trade, especially with cheating countries like China, ABSOLUTELY DOES NOT benefits the US.

Nor does it benefit the workers in the Third World countries to which American factories have been moved. They work for slave wages in buildings that collapse on them and kill them and have to breathe poisonous, polluted air (vide China).

America’s trade with cheating trade partners only benefits those countries, such as China – which has used its massive trade surpluses to finance its military buildup – and the CEOs of the multinational corporations that have shipped jobs out of the US, cut their operating costs dramatically, and pocketed the difference.

As for crony capitalism accusations – it is FREE TRADE, not protectionism, that is a product of cronyism and lobbying.

The American people were vehemently opposed to NAFTA and all later “free trade agreements.” These were passed at the behest of the Fortune 100’s lobbyists on Capitol Hill and their financing of the election and reelection of obedient members of Congress. It is these crony capitalists whom you can thank for those “free trade agreements” – and all the disastrous consequences that followed.

Protectionism, OTOH, was the policy of the US federal government from the moment of its establishment in 1789. It was the official policy of the Washington and Jefferson Administrations and virtually all US governments until the Kennedy Administration.

Yes, protectionism was the policy of the Washington and Jefferson Administrations. And no one needed to bribe them, or any of the other protectionist administrations in US history, to adopt such policies.

Which brings us to the last claim of the free traders: that protectionism is a Big Government Policy and a violation of free market principles.

It is nothing of the sort. As even Adam Smith acknowledged, protecting a country against foreign predators is a perfectly legitimate government function. And trade cheaters ARE predators stealing American jobs, factories, and entire industries.

Protecting the US industrial base against foreign competition is a perfectly legitimate function of the federal government, written into the Constitution, Art. I, Sec. 8, giving Congress full and exclusive power “to regulate commerce … with foreign states.”

And this is the Constitutional power that virtually every administration from that of George Washington to that of Dwight Eisenhower used to protect America’s industrial base.

No, protectionism is not a Big Government policy.

In sum, all of the free traders’ claims are blatant lies. Free trade is a suicidal policy. It has brought about the decline of every country that ever indulged in it.

#furgeson Michael Brown shown in video as thief and assailant

Michael Brown a thug

It turns out that Furgeson, Missouri martyr Michael Brown is less the hero and more the perpetrator as police reports, witness accounts and images show “Big Mike” Brown to be a thug, bully and if nothing else, a criminal.

The following police report shows that Brown and an associate “Johnson” were involved in stealing from a convenience store during which the media darling and proposed civil rights martyr assaults the shop owner on camera.

Michael Brown attacks store clerk

 

Here’s the complete shoplifting camera video footage from the store showing Brown and friends accosting the store owner in order to steal a few cheap cigars. Trivial to Michael Brown, but inventory that would be key to revenue for the poor shop owner.

It would seem that the Black Panthers, NAACP, Al Sharpton and others have once again chosen their political agendas over what is good and right for our nation. It’s no wonder that many inside the community are speaking out against their ridiculous approach to fixing the issues of our day.

ObamaCare around the horn

Fibonacci Blue (CC)
Fibonacci Blue (CC)

Fibonacci Blue (CC)

In case you’ve been living under a rock somewhere, all the buzz is about the mainstream media cooling off when it comes to its hot and heavy love affair with Obama. What pushed them over the top? ObamaCare has been an abysmal failure, so it seems they can’t manage to keep up the lies for the president anymore. Of course the conservative media has been pointing this out for ages, but now the rest of the media is getting the point. But, that doesn’t mean all is forgiven! Conservatives really do need to continue avoiding liberal media – leave that to the evil bloggers Obama says everyone should be ignoring. Following is a collection of the “best of the best” for today, from the conservative or at least remotely close to unbiased outlets on the ObamaCare failures.

Lawrence O’Donnell opens mouth and inserts foot, comparing the ObamaCare website with F-22 fighter jets – It’s MSNBC, so what should one expect? Of course, the big question is, how did O’Donnell manage to learn anything about fighter jets? Either way, it’s not the most brilliant comparison one could make. For you military junkies, this should be moderately amusing.

Leno blasts ObamaCare rollout – For those that really don’t pay attention, you know it’s bad when Jay Leno picks on you, at least if you’re a Democrat residing at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue! Of course, Leno’s not the only one picking on the president on late night, but this one popped up today.

Ron Fournier thinks Sebelius should hit the road – Don’t let the door hit you in the…. Yet another rip on the administration on MSNBC, this one on Morning Joe.

Spend 4.5 hours on the phone, and still don’t get coverage – Remember it just like it was yesterday? Oh yeah, it was! The president told folks that couldn’t get through the infernal website to try calling to get ObamaCare. Well, one man took that advice, spent 4.5 hours on the phone, and still didn’t get coverage. At least that’s what ABC reports.

Even the Al Jazeera reporters can’t get through – Sure, Al Gore may have sold them their cable spot, but Al Jazeera seems to have gotten the short end of the stick from Obama. Their reporter tries to get on ObamaCare, and can’t.

Well, those were all from Washington Free Beacon today! Next time we’ll have to branch out some more….
