What if the Human Female Animal Were Born to be Rational?

She’d be more male.    So, she is born DITSY as is her nature.   The more communication she professionally spends  with normal males, the more likely she can become unditsied, more lucid and rational.

Two and two often don’t make four, in the feminist mind.   She prefers to express feelings rather than explore.   She seeks security and comfort, by Nature or Nature’s God, I prefer, security is required by the human female because she is the bearer of the human  animal’s off spring.   If she is “in the mood”, she, in a free society, has or feels she has a right to feel about things any way she pleases rather than to measure or adjust or explore or be driven to problem solve as is the human animal born male.    Hence, our current  feminized, feelings driven United States of America is collapsing as a unit into a suicidal abyss.

In today’s Obamaling era of the Left, at university, and among political mouths in the foolish traditional Episcopalian, Presbyterian, and other such ‘Synods’ of today’s fading  JudeoChristian life,  have become feminized with feelings and are made to feel they are as man as men.

What would happen to America if our leftist feminized peoples continued to form a dictatorship to force the entire adult population to be man as me?   Most women don’t think along those lines.   Their imagination by birth is directed to follow other avenues of dreams and accomplishment.   (No living entity is perfect.  Without imperfection living matter would never pass its “amoeba” stage of existence.   I WAS TAUGHT THAT IN THE SMALL UNITED LUTHERAN CHURCH OF THE ASCENSION in 1947 in St. Paul, Minnesota I attended by force by  Mother and love of learning!

I did teach Senior High School Social Studies for twelve years, was married for 34 years, and am a father of two boys and one girl, now adults.    My two sons explore every day of their lives which includes, demands,  problem solving.  They are also Donald Trump Republicans, like their problem solving father.

My daughter prefers security, dreams, dancing, attention and is well married to a fine Jewish fellow who seems to love her very much.   They  live out East on the island of Manhattan, are  leftists who believed in  Hillary.

Female difficulties with the human male have again made headlines this past month and a half….at first in the leftist entertainment world with a  Harvey Weinstein becoming the center of feminist fury.  Hundreds, even leftist  Hanoi Jane Fonda claimed victim to support the feminism scream, a leftist unraveling defying this caste’s catechism that  there is no difference among human animals except feelings.

Feminist leftists sell the story of one human sex these days….via the Democrat Party and its rule in government and law, in school,  at university, of the press ….and in some churches and synagogues….perhaps even at Amazon, but that would be kept hush-hush by Amazon management….while countless human guys spend time out in the streets  noted for their raping, killing,  pillaging, burning, and lying about nearly everything.

This past week the name Roy Moore came to surface, a man in his seventies who won the Republican candidate for U.S. Senate in Alabama a seat made vacant when then Alabama U.S. Senator, Jeff Sessions became Attorney General in the Trump administration.   Noted fascist news center, the Washington Post, soon came up with accusations against this former Judge, Roy Moore,charging him with sexual misconduct with a fourteen and two sixteen year olds nearly forty years ago.

A television scene demonstrated one alleged victim now in her fifties, crying over his touchings of nearly four decades ago.  No more recent calls have been dug up by the Post.

At my distance I assumed and still assume this Judge Moore did commit these four or five indecencies.  But, there was and still is, no proof…..only charges from a world long ago.    We Americans, however, are supposed to  by law remember  that a person is innocent until proven guilty beyond doubt.

Politically motivated males and females of Congress insist Judge Moore, still innocent, be removed from his candidacy…..which will make it certain the DISHONEST LEFTISTS IN CONGRESS WILL SECURE ANOTHER SEAT TO DESTROY OUR AMERICAN DREAM of equal opportunity for all citizens,  with fascist bigotry being established as the new American Way.

Our Nation’s future depends upon a Conservative American Congress to survive the FEMINISTS’ Party, its criminality, dishonesty, fascistic, feminized leftist-antiAmericans racists now in control of the Democrat Party…..and their Sanctuary Cities owned by the urban left to weaken and  destroy the nation’s unity.

Guys are born to problem solve….gals to bear children to continue the existence of the human species by the laws of Nature, “God”, I prefer!

Judge Moore has apparently demonstrated decades of civility and responsibility over the past 38 years.

It’s our Democrats who have changed during that time period….the Obamalings, both political and urban street savages, the Clinton world, have become racist and fascist in their politics.   These leftists demand  we continue opening our borders to millions of racial and political foreigners demanding comfort and security at our American citizen expense in exchange for their fascism’s one Party vote.

Leftists have already gained one party fascist control over the social sciences taught at university and public schools  ignoring truth and freedom to study beyond feminazi, racist, and class hate programs of the NEW RACIST, SEXIST LEFT  to destroy traditional  America raise by its forefathers’ founding of our Great Human Republic UNDER GOD WITH LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL”

Knowledge needs to be taught in order to conquer the unknown.  THIS IS A MALE DEMAND.   Accumulating knowledge is best accomplished by a population craving to seek Truth….that is, to grasp more and more knowledge.

Dear Feminists….both Republican and Democrat, of all sexes, colors, shapes and sizes still interested, at least somewhat,  in a Free America…….

What if Roy Moore did commit these five discretions thirty eight years ago, but  has ever since  been an honorable citizen with a conservative persuasion in his politics?

What if our once honorable Democrat Party needs just one more  vote in the Senate to guarantee its present fascist and feminist  goal to  eliminate forever!  Feminists of all sexes, colors, shapes and sizes are now committed to destroy  TRADITIONALLY DEMOCRATIC AMERICA and all  other  freedom oriented,  truth-seeking  opposition organizations , to secure their racist, sexist, economic fascist-socialist one party (totalitarian) future.

Let us assume our American, Roy Moore,  skilled as a Judge, honorable,  outside of his unproved, alleged sins of 38 years ago, is THE ONLY CANDIDATE TO SAVE AMERICA FROM THIS  DICTATORSHIP FUTURE…let’s say a paid off Al Sharpton  type, noted creepy criminal, racist,  habitual liar, devoted to sell dishonesty, racism, an obedient crook and  fascist for fame and fortune who, IF HE WINS PUTS AN END TO DEMOCRATIC AMERICA FOREVER…..(ALA SOUTH AMERICA’S ONCE DEMOCRATIC NOW FASCIST NATION, VENEZUELA.)

White American males would vote 68%, blacks males about 22% for slightly damaged, but freedom oriented devoted American, Judge Roy Moore to save the nation for democracy…..

By 2020 if  our nation’s  Democrats strengthen their   fascistic control of news, education, social-political agencies, and are funded as usual by  big businesses,  single American white  females would probably vote 99% for profoundly, forever damaged, the crooked, Al Sharpton, and black females of all backgrounds about 97%.

Feminists do not care much about honesty,  inquiry, search for knowledge, nor are they freedom oriented.    They demand security as they did in Nazi Germany in the 1930s….and as a mass, never rebelled in any fascist, communist nation…ever, ever.

They demand security, not freedom or search for the unknown…..as a mass.  Al Sharpton would win big time….because Roy Moore “done a female a slight male naughty” 42 years ago in 2020.

Democrats Lie as a Habit! After all, They are Fascist Socialists Now

What is an Obama and/or Post Obama Democrat title these days of Leftism and it Black racist, Feminazi, Open Borders, and atheistic,   New York Times’ “University” America?

In “TRUTH”,  Truth is not a highly valued virtue among our contemporary American feminist of all sexes, races, shapes and sizes.    Please read Kirsten Gillibrand “change of heart”, now that that pair of  Clinton creeps of endless descriptions have become losers.    Do read anything Hillary….or watch her every move or listen to her noise at nearly anytime.   What about Hillary’s New York residue in the U.S. Senate up to these days?

KIRSTEN GILLIBRAND’S INTELLECTUAL DISHONESTY [UPDATED]

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, who holds the seat formerly occupied by Hillary Clinton, said today that Bill Clinton should have resigned the presidency after his inappropriate relationship with Monica Lewinsky came to light. That’s mighty enlightened of her.

But what took her so long to reach, or articulate, this view? The answer is, it took the fall of Clintons plus a crucial Senate race in which the Republican is being accused of serious sexual misconduct.

We know that Gillibrand would never have called out Bill Clinton if he still wielded influence. We know this because she didn’t when he did. To the contrary, just last year, she wrote: “I. . .was truly honored that President Bill Clinton campaigned for me in my first run for Congress in 2006.”

Attempting to explain her alleged change of heart about Clinton, Gillibrand said: “Things have changed today, and I think under those circumstances there should be a very different reaction.” This dodge is unpersuasive, as I argued at length here.”

(There’s more.  Please read on below!)

Fox News, Tell the Truth! Norm Coleman Beat Thief Franken in the 2008 MN Senate Contest!

ONE PLUS ONE EQUALS 20 EXTRA VOTES FOR FRANKEN

by Ann Coulter

“It’s bad enough that the Republican Party can’t prevent Democrats from voting in its primaries and saddling us with The New York Times’ favorite Republican as our presidential nominee. If the Republican Party can’t protect an election won by the incumbent U.S. senator in Minnesota, there is no point in donating to the Republican Party.

The day after the November election, Republican Sen. Norm Coleman had won his re-election to the U.S. Senate, beating challenger Al Franken by 725 votes.

Then one heavily Democratic town miraculously discovered 100 missing ballots. In another marvel, they were all for Al Franken! It was like a completely evil version of a Christmas miracle.

As strange as it was that all 100 post-election, “discovered” ballots would be for one candidate, it was even stranger that the official time stamp for the miracle ballots printed out by the voting machine on the miracle ballots showed that the votes had been cast on Nov. 2 — two days before the election.

Democratic election officials in the miracle-ballot county simply announced that the date stamp on their voting machine must have been broken. Don’t worry about it — they were sure those 100 votes for Franken were legit.

Next, another 400-odd statistically improbable “corrections” were made in other Democratic strongholds until — by the end of election week — Coleman’s lead had been whittled down to a mere 215 votes.

Since then, highly irregular counting methods have added to Franken’s total bit by bit, to the point that Coleman is now ahead by only 188 votes.

As long as Coleman maintains any lead at all, Republicans don’t seem to care that Coleman’s advantage is being shrunk by laughable ballot “discoveries” and different vote-count standards being applied from one precinct to the next — depending on which method of counting ballots is most advantageous to Franken.

Consider a few other chilling examples of Democrats thieving their way to victory over the years.

In 1974, Republican Louis Wyman won his race for U.S. Senate in New Hampshire, beating Democrat John Durkin by 355 votes. Durkin demanded a recount — which went back and forth by a handful of votes until the state’s Ballot Law Commission concluded that Wyman had indeed won by (at least) two votes.

Wyman was certified the winner by the New Hampshire secretary of state and was on his way to Washington when … the overwhelmingly Democratic U.S. Senate refused to seat Wyman.

Despite New Hampshire’s certification of Wyman as the winner of the election, this was the post-Watergate Senate, when Democrats could get away with anything — including a madcap prank known as “President Jimmy Carter.”

The U.S. Senate spent months examining disputed ballots from the New Hampshire election. Unable to come up with a method to declare the Democrat the winner that didn’t involve a guillotine, the U.S. Senate forced New Hampshire to hold another election.

It was a breathtaking abuse of power. New Hampshire had certified a winner of its Senate election, but it was a Republican, so the Democratic Senate simply ordered a new election.

Demoralized Republicans stayed away from the race and, this time, the Democrat won the re-vote.

Even more egregious was a 1984 congressional race in Indiana. On election night, the incumbent Democrat Frank McCloskey appeared to have won a razor-thin victory of 72 votes. But after a correction was made in one county, it turned out his Republican opponent, Richard McIntyre, had won by 34 votes.

Republican McIntyre was certified the winner — which is when the trouble usually starts. Again, a majority Democrat House refused to seat the certified winner in a close election. (I’m sure it was just a coincidence that the winner was a Republican.)

Consequently, Indiana performed yet another recount of the entire district, which again showed that Republican McIntyre was the winner — this time by 418 votes.

As The Washington Post reported at the time: There were “no allegations of fraud” in the recount and 90 percent of ballot disqualifications had been agreed to “by election commissions dominated by Democrats.” So, naturally, the House refused to seat the Republican even though he had received the most votes in the election, which in most jurisdictions would make him “the winner.”

This time, instead of ordering the district to hold another election, the Democratic House saved everyone a lot of trouble by simply declaring Democrat Frank McCloskey the winner. By exactly four votes, according to the House’s count.

Rounding out our stories of Democratic vote-theft is the infamous 2004 gubernatorial election in Washington State. Eerily similar to the ongoing “recount” in Minnesota, the Republican won the race on election night, but ballots favoring the Democrat kept being “discovered” until the Democrat finally eked out a majority. At that point, the recount was immediately halted and the Democrat declared the victor.

You would have to go back to Reconstruction to find an election that was stolen by the Republicans this way, but it’s all in a day’s work for the Democrats. Win or lose, Democrats will steal any close election.

That’s why they were so testy about the 2000 Florida election. It was the one time in the last century Republicans wouldn’t let Democrats steal an election they lost by less than a thousand votes.

No matter how many times Democrats steal elections, Republicans keep thinking the next time will be different. Minnesota is famously clean! It’s not like those other states. It’s not different. It’s still the Democrats.”

Note:   Brett Baier didn’t get his Al Franken news straight this evening on Fox News.

Baier claimed Franken won his first Senate contest by beating  Senator Norm Coleman in 2008 by 312 votes.  THE WINNER OF THE ORIGINAL OFFICIAL VOTE COUNT AT THE END OF THE COUNTING WAS U.S. SENATOR NORM COLEMAN BY 725 votes.    There would be a mandatory recount, however….which would include illegal voting at jails, Iron Range and Duluth precincts with more Franken voters than voting citizens……enough corruption in the 8th Congressional district to make certain Obama’s 60th vote in the Senate would be assured.

In a number of elections including the year of the Franken fraud,   very, very, senior citizens in the seventh and eighth congressional districts would be bused to voting stations and the programmed “well intended” leftist bus driver would assist each individual to vote Democrat whether one wanted to or not.

Washington Post Attack on Judge Roy Moore a Typical Fascist Smear!?

In Defense of Judge Roy Moore

by Frank J. Tipler    at American Thinker:
(Please read the entire article by Frank J. Tipler.   In my lifetime Americans used to oppose lynching, whether the lethal or the cultural.  It was often violated previous to my 1934 birth.  But, frontier “justice”killings were disappearing, civilization spreading, that is, until the Barack Obama Washington era, when savagery returned full blast in Ferguson, Baltimore, Chicago, San Francisco, even Middlebury, Vermont.
The civilized began to rely on fair trials arriving at fair conclusions by seeking Truth…..with exceptions such as when the OJ Simpson trial murdered set savagery free to roam……and the rise of the feminized, feminazified rioters and writers of the nation’s leftist Democrat Party.
This neofascistic institution has contrived a scenario using drama to smear a Judge Roy Moore running for the open  U.S. Senate seat from the state of Alabama.
 A couple of  women have arrived via  the fascistic Washington Post newspaper to defeat the Posts’s major enemy in life,  the  National Republican Party  retaining  control of the U.S. Senate in an election this coming midDecember.    Mr. Moore is in his seventies.
The current  Washington Post is not known for its honesty, its concern for Truth.  It prefers a Marxist dictatorship culture these days, a single god of politics with central party control.
Some thirty eight years ago  this Mr. Moore was, according to the leftist WP’s yesterday discovery, being somewhat naughty in the presence of a 14 year old girl and a couple 16 year old women…. A video of one of the 16 year old accusers was shown still crying over the event…..To be accurate, no one has charged rape, not even the folks at the Washington Post.
Republican Senators, Mitch McConnell and John McCain, and other such elephants ganged together with others  to stop the Roy Moore campaign, mouthing as if they had stood by observing these alleged events those many decades ago.   They forget….  In America any person charged with a crime is considered INNOCENT UNTIL PROVED GUILTY in a court of law.    PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE ARTICLE BELOW by Frank Tipler at American Thinker!

“If one reads the original Washington Post article on Judge Moore’s supposed harassment of underage “girls” with an open mind, one will conclude that Judge Moore is completely innocent, and that he is the victim of Fake News.

First, a few definitions. I shall call a human female who is under the age of consent, a “girl.” I shall call a human female who is of the age of consent, a “woman.” I shall also define the “age of consent” to be what the legal code of the state of Alabama, both in the 1970s and today, to be the age of consent: 16. This age is above the biological age of consent, which is puberty: menstruation for a woman, pubic hair for a man. In medieval canon law, a woman was thus of the age of consent around 12. In most of current-day Mexico, this is still the age of consent. I am a 70-year-old college professor, and to me, a woman under the age of 30 seems like a young girl. I personally regard none of my female students as women; all are children in my eyes. But I shall reject both the biological age of consent, and my own personal view of the age of consent, and adopt Alabama’s age of consent.

Now read the Post article and assume that the reporters wrote the exact truth about what four human females told them (a big assumption, I grant). Then three of the four claim that Roy Moore dated them when they were women, not girls. And not only did they themselves consent to dating Moore, their families consented to their dating Moore. (Actually, according to one, her family withdrew consent, after which Moore ceased to date her). Furthermore, according to these three women, Moore never went beyond kissing and hugging. Which are the only acts a Christian man is permitted to engage in with a woman not his wife. According to these three women, Moore consistently acted as the Christian he claims to have been, and claims to be now.

The fourth human female told the Post reporters a completely different story. She claims that not only did Moore date her when she was a girl of fourteen, but that he also undressed her, and exposed himself. Notice the differences between this single claim and the other three reports: In a single case, Moore, a trained lawyer, dated jailbait. In this single case, Moore behaved in a dishonorable manner to a girl, not a woman. In this single case, we have reasons, given in the Post article, to doubt the claim: the accuser has been married three times, and has been in bankruptcy twice.

A commonsense view of human behavior is that bad guys repeat their MOs. Willie Sutton did not stop with a single bank robbery. Harvey Weinstein, Roman Polanski, and Bill Cosby have numerous rape accusers, not just one. Yet we are asked to believe a single report of mere sexual misbehavior, which is not even a claim of statutory rape.

On the basis of the Post article alone, I would have no doubt that Judge Moore dated young women when he was a young man in his early 30s. It is irrelevant that these women were in their late teens.  They were of the age of consent, and hence women, not girls. It was my own experience in my thirties that women preferred older men. My own wife is six years my junior. Judge Moore’s wife is fourteen years his junior. (Judge Moore was 38 when he married his wife of 24, which an indication that he preferred younger women — and that his wife preferred older men.)

Disregarding the single dubious accusation, Judge Moore is accused of behavior which has been considered completely moral for almost the entirety of human history: courting a young women in her teens while being more than ten years older. In contrast, John McCain, who has demanded that Judge Moore resign from the senate race, committed adultery, and divorced his wife to marry the woman with whom he committed adultery.

Notice that I don’t have to write “alleged to have committed adultery.” McCain admits it, because adultery is not only no longer illegal, it is now not even immoral. But for the entirety of human history, adultery has been, not only immoral, but a capital offence (Leviticus 20:10). “Thou shalt not commit adultery” is the Seventh Commandment. No doubt this is real reason the federal judges object to Judge Moore placing the Ten Commandments in his courtroom.

Democrat Doug Jones, Judge Moore’s opponent in the senate election, supports partial birth abortion, which is to say, infanticide. In earlier times, Jones would have been considered not merely immoral, but a homicidal psychopath. Jones, should be elected, fully intends to continue supporting infanticide. Judge Moore will support pro-life Christian morality.

The Alabama voters have a choice. I hope they make the only moral choice.

Feminist Fascism Rules in Leftist Gopherland Edina Public Schools?

Teacher Reveals Required English Course Aims to Eradicate White Privilege at Edina High

“As controversy swirls around the debate over the Edina public schools that Center of the American Experiment has launched, some charge the Center with exaggerating the political indoctrination going on in the district’s schools. They also say we fail to draw a connection between Edina district leaders’ embrace of an agenda based on racial identity politics and the district’s declining academic performance.

Those who read Edina English teacher Jackie Roehl’s account of the hidden agenda of the high school’s notorious “Pre-AP English 10” course—written in an unguarded moment—can judge for themselves. The account is linked here.

“Welcome to Pre-AP English 10, an innovative, challenging, and engaging course that we expect will prepare you for success at Edina High School and beyond.”

With this fanfare, Edina High School (EHS) announced the launch—in the 2012-13 school year—of a new required course for all tenth-grade students.

Why a new approach to teaching English literature? In a course description provided to students and parents, EHS listed several reasons. They included the following: “To ensure that all students get the high-quality curriculum and instruction they need to be successful;” to expand access to Advanced Placement courses; and to “provid[e] a common experience” for sophomores that “will facilitate a smoother transition from middle school to high school.”

But a far more candid—and startlingly different—version of the course’s genesis and purpose was written around the same time by one of its principal designers: EHS English teacher Jackie Roehl.

Roehl’s account reveals that Pre-AP English 10 is, and was intended to be, a year-long exercise in indoctrination in racial identity politics and “critical race theory.” The course teaches an extremist view of race that emphatically rejects the American ideal of color-blindness put forward by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Instead, it promotes an obsession with “white privilege” and an effort to blame any academic challenge that minority students may have on institutional racial bias at Edina High School.

The Edina High School “happy talk” document that introduced the course to students and parents concealed this ideological agenda. In fact, the way EHS has conducted the course is a textbook example of political propaganda.  Propagandists attempt to manipulate people to achieve their ends by disguising their real agenda.

Here’s another troubling allegation about Pre-AP English 10: A new analysis of the grade-level reading difficulty of the books listed on the web sites of teachers who teach the course finds that the books used have an average measure of reading difficulty (or lexile range) at approximately the fifth-grade level.

This analysis was performed by a group of Edina residents who consulted an independent source to determine the reading level of the books, and then averaged the lexiles of core and “choice” books in a way that reflected their potential use in the course. (Given the seriousness of the charge, we are working to independently verify the data.)

When EHS announced the new Pre-AP English 10 course in 2012, it claimed that student assignments would be “carefully chosen” for “their rigor,” since “we’re aiming for the top.” In fact, the texts used in the course do not prepare tenth-grade students for future academic challenges, either in high school or college, if the new analysis is accurate. This would suggest a direct link between the race-based focus of Edina schools and the district’s lagging academic performance.

Pre-AP English 10 constitutes an abuse of parents’ trust, taxpayers’ money and –most importantly—vulnerable children. Edina citizens should hold EPS district leaders accountable for the way that EHS is substituting political indoctrination for solid instruction.

The real agenda of Pre-AP English 10

Roehl’s account of the genesis and mission of Pre-AP English 10—entitled “Voices from the inside: Jackie Roehl”—appeared in a 2013 book entitled More Courageous Conversations about Race. [Read Roehl’s essay here.]  The book’s author was Glenn E. Singleton, president and CEO of Pacific Educational Group (PEG), a California-based “diversity” consulting group that trained Edina teachers and staff on racial issues for several years starting in 2009.

Roehl’s account was aimed, not at Edina students and parents, but at teachers and others around the nation who share PEG’s ideology.

In her essay, Roehl echoes PEG’s doctrine that schools like Edina High School are deeply racist institutions. A campaign to rid such schools of institutional racism, she writes, requires both “a major shift in teaching approaches and active social justice work.” Consequently, teachers must become social activists dedicated to changing their schools from the ground up, so they can abolish what Roehl calls the “systems of racism” that prevent minority students from reaching their academic potential.

According to Roehl, Pre-AP English 10 was designed to serve as a cornerstone of the campaign to launch such a transformation at Edina High School. The primary purpose of the course was not to teach students about great literature, elevate their writing skills, improve their grammar or enhance their understanding of the English language’s complexities. It was to enlist kids in a campaign to eradicate “White privilege” at Edina High.

What PEG teaches

Roehl’s essay begins with an account of her own conversion, so to speak, to PEG’s race-based ideology. Before her racial awakening in 2004, she writes, she had focused her teaching on “whole-class discussions about literature,” which she viewed as “Socratic.” However, after learning about “culturally relevant teaching” from another diversity organization, she realized that in her customary method of instruction, “my White students” were just “reflecting my White culture back to me.”

Roehl’s approach to teaching changed materially when PEG became involved with the Edina schools in 2009, she writes.  PEG’s emphasis on “courageous conversations” about race—and “specifically, a study of critical race theory helped me reach the place I am today—a teacher who not only incorporates culturally relevant strategies but also understands the importance of critically examining the systems of racism that prevent some students from achieving to their highest potential in school.”

Critical race theory is an extremist ideology that rejects America’s colorblind ideal—Martin Luther King, Jr.’s, conviction that people should be judged by the content of their character. Instead, it holds that only an unrelenting focus on skin color can change America’s pervasively racist institutions.

The theory’s fundamental premise is that white people enjoy unearned “privilege” from birth. However, they are usually unaware of their illegitimate privilege, which is to blame for all the problems that minority groups face.

PEG maintains that white people must be made conscious of their privilege so the sweeping transformations required to “interrupt” a “system of White dominance” can take place. PEG instructs teachers that they have a “moral and ethical” obligation—in Roehl’s words–to close the racial achievement gap. In PEG’s view, that means teachers must use their influence over students to raise their racial consciousness and work to end institutional racism.

The logical implication of PEG’s ideology is that teachers’ most important job is notto convey subject matter knowledge to students. It is to become social activists who change their schools from the ground up, abolishing the “systemic issues” that PEG claims perpetuate racism.

In addition, teachers must act as therapists, ministering to students who are viewed as patients afflicted with “race, racism and Whiteness.”

Roehl’s account of how Edina teachers worked to transform EHS and its racist students

PEG’s “courageous conversations” about race and their influence on teachers’ classroom observations “were the missing piece for the school [EHS] to really begin systemic transformation” of its racist practices, according to Roehl. “PEG’s Beyond Diversity Workshops, equity team seminars, and CARE trainings,” she wrote, “gave my colleagues and me a framework to examine the individual and systemic practices at Edina High School that limit [minority] student achievement.”

Enraptured by PEG’s ideology, Roehl and her colleagues “wanted to impact the entire [EHS] staff.” Consequently, “[f]or the last 2 years, the CARE team used staff development time and even former faculty meeting time to present to the full staff the philosophies and strategies learned from PEG….”

According to Roehl, “We placed an equity lens over all staff development discussions—from literacy to homework to assessment.” (“Equity” in this context, doesn’t have its common-sense meaning of equal treatment for all, but signals an obsession with “white privilege” and racial identity politics.)

Roehl continues:

We even used specific readings and films from PEG seminars with our staff. For example, one 3-hour session on critical race theory and the film The House We Live In impacted many staff members, especially examining Whiteness as property, and pushed them to understand the importance of equity work at Edina High School. (emphasis added)

Pre-AP English 10 as the primary vehicle of PEG’s ideology

EHS’s new Pre-AP English 10 course, launched in the 2012-13 school year, grew out of this systematic effort to eradicate racism at the high school by Roehl and her colleagues. The course was designed to serve as a primary weapon in the assault on racist practices at EHS.  As a central tool in re-educating kids, it helped to lay the foundation for what was intended to be a comprehensive high school curriculum rooted in racial identity politics…….”   and there’s more below:

Mueller….The Bureaucratic Establishment’s Heinrich Himmler

WHY MUELLER SHOULD NOT BE SPECIAL COUNSEL

“I believe any reasonable observer, if he considers the matter independently of whose ox is being gored, would agree that it is problematic to have a special counsel with a broad mandate to investigate, unbound by some of the normal constraints of a prosecutor, a campaign and a presidency. Reasonable observers will disagree about the extent of the danger, and about the countervailing value of having such a prosecutor in certain circumstances.

However, it seems undeniable that even a non-conflicted, non-partisan, non-abusive special counsel can severely hamper the ability of the president to perform the job the American people elected him to do. In an extreme case, such a prosecutor can destroy a presidency for no good reason.

That’s why, if we are to have a special counsel, we must be satisfied that he is non-conflicted, non-partisan, and non-abusive.

Does Robert Mueller satisfy all three of these criteria? Does he satisfy any of them?

Given his friendship and ties with James Comey, there is a good case that Mueller is conflicted. Comey is at the center of key aspects of the investigation — alleged collusion and, especially, alleged obstruction of justice. And it was Comey whose manipulation and leakingresulted, as intended, in the appointment of a special counsel.

Mueller has a reputation (deserved or not, I don’t know) for being non-partisan. But the same was true of Mueller’s friend and admirer James Comey. And we all understand that being a Republican is not inconsistent with hating Donald Trump.

It would, of course, be unfair to suggest on this basis alone that Mueller is anti-Trump. But if we examine the people Mueller has hired to work on this investigation, concerns of partisanship come to the fore. It is well-documented that Mueller has assembled a staff full of partisan Democrats, many of whom contributed money to Trump’s opponent in the very election that gave rise to the investigation.

If, as I believe, Mueller and his team fail the non-conficted and non-partisan tests, then he ought not have the power that has been invested in him. I should also note that when Mueller was given this power, it wasn’t known that he would staff up with anti-Trump Democrats; nor was the full extent of his conflict understood.

Accordingly, I think Mueller deserves to be sacked whether or not he acted abusively so far. Has he? I don’t know enough facts or enough about criminal prosecutions to answer.

I do know that leaking news of an impending grand jury indictment is abusive and, as I understand it, illegal. But I don’t know whether Mueller’s team is responsible for the leaking that has occurred so far, including this weekend’s leak that an indictment was about to come down.

Trey Gowdy, a Republican and former prosecutor, has encouraged Republicans to “give [Mueller] a chance to do his job.” He says, “the result will be known by the facts.”

I respect Gowdy, but there are problems with his statement. So far Mueller has had not just a chance, but free rein to do his job. We already know some of the results — (1) a free-wheeling investigation that appears to go well beyond the issue of Russian interference in the 2016 election and alleged collusion by the Trump campaign and (2) a staff full of partisan Democrats.

By the time Mueller and his team of anti-Trumpers reach their “result,” they may have severely impaired this presidency for no good reason.

What can be done to counter Mueller? The first step is to criticize his investigation. Trump did so this weekend in a series of tweets. Other Republicans went on the Sunday shows to raise questions about Team Mueller.

I doubt these efforts will be effective except, perhaps, for the purpose of laying the groundwork for measures that will actually block Mueller, if things come to that. These measures aren’t hard to identify, but discussing them is beyond the scope of this post……”

Benghazi Liar Schiff Now Lies about Uranium One

by Daniel John Sobieski  at American Thinker:

“When the Democratic anti-Trump mantra of “Russia, Russia, Russia” was in its infancy, House Intelligence Committee off ranking member Rep. Adam Schiff from the People’s Republic of California was in high dudgeon over Chairman Rep. Devin Nunes daring to report to the public and the press that, yes, members of Team Trump were in fact surveilled and the contents of their conversations and their names were recorded and disseminated.

Rep. Schiff had no problem with intel leaks to the New York Times, but an intelligence committee chairman giving the President a heads-up that his transition team was in fact caught up in surveillance by his own government is out of bounds? Schiff insisted it was, and claimed Nunes was not acting as a committee chair but as a surrogate of Team Trump:

At his own news conference later that afternoon, Schiff sharply criticized Nunes, given that his committee is in the middle of an active investigation that includes the question of whether Trump’s campaign colluded with Russia’s suspected attempts to meddle in last year’s election.

“The chairman will need to decide whether he is the chairman of an independent investigation into conduct which includes allegations of potential coordination between the Trump campaign and the Russians, or he is going to act as a surrogate of the White House, because he cannot do both,” Schiff told reporters.

Schiff has no problem acting as a surrogate for Team Obama or Team Hillary. That deafening silence you hear is the outrage he has expressed over the leaking of classified information to the press designed to fatally wound the Trump transition. Schiff had no problem repeating claims without evidence that Team Trump was colluding with the Russians. But he was troubled by Nunes citing reports proving President Trump was right about his team being monitored, creating a kerfuffle that forced Nunes to recuse himself from active leadership of his committee.

Fast forward to Uranium One and Fusion GPS and evidence of actual collusion and coordination between the Clinton campaign, the DNC, and the Russians, and we find ranking member Schiff once again acting as a surrogate for both President Barack Hussein Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton. He cannot do both. Nor can he ignore evidence that Team Hillary conspired with the Russians to both influence our elections and to engage in arguably treasonous pay-for-play in exchanging control of 20 percent of our uranium supply, the raw material for nuclear weapons, for $145 million in donations to the Clinton Foundation.

Yet that is what Schiff is doing, whistling past his party’s political graveyard and ignoring evidence of crimes that, yes, make Watergate look like a third-rate burglary and the treason of the Rosenbergs look like a misdemeanor, He calls Uranium One a politically-motivated “distraction”, showing how unserious the Democrats are about real corruption and collusion and why these “bipartisan” investigations are a sham by definition:

Wednesday on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports,” Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, accused the Trump administration, Breitbart News and Fox News of promoting news first reported by The Hill last week regarding Hillary Clinton’s involvement in the Uranium One deal.

The 2010 deal, covered extensively in Breitbart editor-at-large Peter Schweizer’s book “Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich,” gave Russia control of a significant portion of U.S. uranium.

Schiff denounced the new attention as a “partisan effort to distract” and accused House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) of being a part of it given three House committees — Judiciary, Government Reform and Intelligence — were involved.

Schiff, as we know, is no stranger to partisan efforts to distract and is a veteran of using lies, false charges, and obfuscation to distract the American people from the crimes and corruption of Team Obama and Team Clinton. He shamelessly defended the incompetence and criminal negligence of Obama and Clinton in Benghazi

Schiff was the individual who called the heroes who fought off terrorists from the roof of the CIA annex in Benghazi liars for their account of the Obama/Clinton administration’s denying security improvements, ignoring warnings of the attack, and the issuance of a stand-down order for any rescue, an order they ignored. AsInvestor’s Business Daily recounted in 2014:

The California Democrat who suggested that his party boycott the Benghazi Select Committee as a waste of time now accuses those who fought on the CIA annex roof of lying “to promote a new book.”

The last we heard from Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., a member of the House Intelligence Committee, was in May. That’s when he told Chris Wallace on “Fox News Sunday” he thought the planned select committee to investigate the 2012 Benghazi attack was a “colossal waste of time.”

Calling the yet-to-be-approved committee a “tremendous red herring,” Schiff said: “I don’t think it makes sense, really, for Democrats to participate.”…

… Schiff apparently is still not happy about the hearing, which pointed out the State Department’s pre-Benghazi neglect of security, ignoring the security recommendations after the 1998 bombings of our embassies in Kenya and Tanzania….

The hearing came right after Kris Paronto, Mark Geist and John Tiegen, three CIA contractors who on that night fought terrorists from the roof of the CIA’s Benghazi annex building, confirmed that there was indeed a stand-down order given that caused a critical half-hour delay….

Schiff, who was not in Benghazi that night, says Paronto, Geist and Tiegen are making up a tale to sell their book, as if their story is less plausible than the proven lie that the Benghazi attack was caused by an inflammatory YouTube video, a myth promoted both by then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and President Obama.

After seeing clips of Schiff saying the contractors were trying to sell their book and Smith claiming a stand-down order “was never given,” Geist said he “would like to invite Mr. Schiff to a debate… we can talk about it.” He wondered if Schiff wished to “say that to my face.”

Schiff thought the Benghazi heroes was making it up, and now he thinks Nunes and Team Trump are making up the fact that investigations into Team Trump and the Russians, and the creation of a Special Counsel, were prompted by a fake dossier put together by the Russians and paid for by Hilary Clinton’s campaign and the DNC. He claims it is a distraction to point out the truth that Hillary Clinton and the Obama administration sold out American national security in exchange for more Clinton cash.

Rep. Adam Schiff, have you no shame?
