“Our schools are no longer part of the solution, but have become part of the problem. They are indoctrinating our children to hate and distrust not only police officers, but America itself.”
…New teachers were presented with a slide that read: “Definition of Revolution – a forcible overthrow of a government or social order in favor of a new system. How do you see your work as this kind of revolution?”
One presenter talked about the 1967 Newark rioters, the ones who got 26 people killed, hundreds injured, and left a path of looting and destruction that affected thousands of lives for years, as being “part of the revolution” and the National Guardsmen who restored order as “oppressors.”
The teachers broke into small-group “decompression sessions” where the whites among them had to “own up” to their “white privilege.”
Finally, the conference ended with everyone standing in a giant circle with their fists in the air chanting “Love and Revolution” over and over again. (The video records the chant, and it’s definitely as creepy as it sounds.)
Which begs the question, a revolution against who?
…The video ends with the following pertinent questions:
How can this be going on in a public school?
Is the taxpayer really paying $17,000 per student per year to have them indoctrinated with anti police rhetoric?
How can a public school receiving federal funding so blatantly align themselves with the Black Lives Matter movement?
How can someone who is supposed to be non-political so openly promote the Democratic Party and at the same time demonize Donald Trump and mainstream America?
There are logical actions and reactions. This post is to demonstrate that logic is not applied equally across the board to all countries. What I propose to show you is that when France or indeed any Western country does these kind of things, the World applauds and supports their actions but when Israel reacts in EXACTLY the same way they are condemned.
Considering that Israel is the West’s most valuable ally in the fight against Islamic terrorism this terrible double standard needs to stop. Quite frankly where does much of Europe and America, Australia and New Zealand, get off criticising Israel for what their countries would do in a heartbeat when in the exact same situation?

So much for the sisterhood. More women view Hillary Clinton in a negative than positive light, according to the latest ABC News/Washington Post poll.
The poll found that among the general population, 53% viewed Clinton unfavorably compared to 45% that view her favorably. Among women the numbers were not much better.
Despite women being a core audience for the Democrats, just 48% of women said they viewed Clinton favorably compared to 51% of women that viewed her unfavorably. The poll also showed trouble for Clinton when it comes to younger voters, with 50% of voters aged 18-39 saying they had a negative view of Clinton compared to 47% with a positive view.
Women and younger voters are two groups that were key to Barack Obama’s election victories in 2008 and 2012.
The poll also looked at Republican candidates Donald Trump and Jeb Bush as well as Vice-President Joe Biden.
This is the standard defence of Kim Dotcom from his apologists and publicists and biographers…it goes something like this.
He is not storing the files, he is providing space with a set of rules to be used. The users of that space have a choice to follow the rules or not and store legitimate data or store illegal files etc.
He receives take down notices and acts on them. What else is he supposed to do?
Would you like Google to shut down as well?
Followed by this:
What do you mean by theft and copyright infringement? Do you also wish for the owners of YouTube to be lynched for providing a medium of copyright infringement? Or are you referring to the false accusations of years ago? About the trial that the US has delayed numerous times, assumingly because they have no real evidence against him after illegally stealing his property under no warrant after bribing Key? Again, I can tell your hearts are in the right place, but your government is the true enemy of the people. NZ, US, wherever. They’re all tyrannies, US especially. Read more »
Lockheed Martin has released a video of ADAM, its high energy laser (HEL) system, taking out a rocket from a range of 1.5 km (0.9 miles). Slowed down, the 300-fps video clearly shows the laser beam striking and tracking a point towards the front of the rocket, before destroying it mid-flight.
ADAM, which stands for Area Defense Anti-Munitions is a self-contained unit designed to nullify attacks from unmanned aerial vehicles, or improvised rocket attacks from the ground. The intention is that the system will be used to protect vulnerable assets such as military bases near the frontline, acquiring and tracking short-range targets from a distance of 5 km (3.1 miles), and destroying from a range of up to 2 km (1.2 miles).
In the test, which took place April 22, an ADAM prototype takes out a “Qassam-like” rocket. Qassam rockets are artillery munitions used by the military wing of Hamas in attacks against Israel. Read more »
At times it’s hard the believe the total absence of limits that stupid people appear to operate under:
A northern Indiana man who had the Mitt Romney-Paul Ryan campaign logo tattooed onto his face “to make politics fun” says it’s time for it to come off.
Eric Hartsburg of Michigan City, says he plans to have the red-and-blue “R” removed from its prominent place next to his right eye.
He says a Republican supporter paid him US$15,000 (NZ$18,312) to get the tattoo and keep it until at least the election was over.
Weeks after President Barack Obama defeated the former Massachusetts governor in the November 6 election, Hartsburg says “now to me it represents not a losing campaign, but a sore losing campaign.”
Hartsburg says he reached out to the Romney campaign about the tattoo, but feels snubbed that no campaign staffer ever contacted him.

For those truthers who for whatever reason still think that something other than a mere plane crash brought down the World Trade Center towers, you could be right, just not about the involvement of Dick Cheney.
“If my theory is correct, tonnes of aluminium ran down through the towers, where the smelt came into contact with a few hundred litres of water,” Christian Simensen, a scientist at SINTEF, an independent technology research institute based in Norway, said in a statement released Wednesday.
“From other disasters and experiments carried out by the aluminium industry, we know that reactions of this sort lead to violent explosions.”
Given the quantities of the molten metal involved, the blasts would have been powerful enough to blow out an entire section of each building, he said. This, in turn, would lead to the top section of each tower to fall down on the sections below.
The sheer weight of the top floors would be enough to crush the lower part of the building like a house of card, he said.
For the technically minded and sanctimonious know it all limp dicks like Lynn Prentice here is a little video about Thermite reactions.

By a 53 to 28 percent margin, independents say they plan to vote against the president in November 2012.
This article explains how much better off you would be if you had invested in Sturm, Ruger & Co compared to gold.
In the time since he took office, gun sales have soared. The government doesn’t track individual sales. But the FBI criminal background check required to purchase a gun is considered a reasonable proxy, and these have hit record numbers each year Obama has been in office. This year, they’re on track to surpass 15 million for the first time.
Ruger has done especially well. Since Obama’s inauguration the company’s stock price has risen more than 400 percent, making it a better investment than gold, which is up 113 percent. “They’ve been outstanding in offering new products, especially in the concealable handgun segment,” says Jim Barrett, an analyst at CL King who tracks the gun industry and rates the company a “strong buy.”
It also highlights why you would be better off voting for Obama to protect your investment. A Republican president would harm gun sales.
