White House-Tied Lib Think Tank: High Schools With Redskins Mascots Create A “Hostile Educational Environment”…

The Center for American Progress, which has deep ties to the Obama admin, also wants the DOE’s civil rights division to intimidate schools with Indian mascots.

WASHINGTON — A report released by the Center for American Progress Tuesday calls on state and federal boards of education to enforce civil rights protections for American Indian and Alaska Native students who face hostile education environments related to Indian sports mascots.

Four high schools in Indiana have Redskins as their mascot (Manual, Goshen, Knox, Fort Wayne Northside).

The report to be released at a news conference later this morning recommends:

– The U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights should use its full authority to enforce civil rights protections for American Indian and Alaska native students and promote a safe and welcoming learning environment

– State-level boards of education and education agencies should identify schools in their states with American Indian and Alaska Native representations, examine their impact and develop recommendations to remove harmful representations.

– Nonprofit legal assistance organizations and law school clinics should develop programs to support American Indian and Alaska native students who want to file complaints.

Delusional Hillary Clinton Says “The Reset Worked” With Russia…

Typical egomaniac who can’t admit when they were wrong.

Washington (CNN) – It worked.

That is the argument former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton made during a Thursday interview about her much talked about 2009 reset of U.S.-Russia relations.

The statement comes as Russia, under President Vladimir Putin, has distanced itself from the United States, and the country is widely seen by U.S. and European analysts as linked to the downing of a passenger airliner earlier this month in Ukraine.

“What I think I demonstrate in the book, is that the reset worked,” Clinton told guest host John Harwood on NPR’s “On Point” on Thursday during a conversation about her new memoir, “Hard Choices.” “It was an effort to try to obtain Russian cooperation on some key objectives while (Dmitry) Medvedev was president.”

Clinton later said the reset “succeeded” and was meant to be “a device to try to refocus attention on the transactional efforts that we needed to get done with the Russians.”

Sudanese Christian Woman Sentenced To Death For Apostasy Finally Out Of Sudan, Flies To Rome To Meet Pope Francis…

Wonderful news!

A Sudanese woman who fled to Italy after being spared a death sentence for renouncing Islam has met the Pope.

Meriam Yahia Ibrahim Ishag flew to Rome with her family after more than a month in the US embassy in Khartoum.

There was global condemnation when she was sentenced to hang for apostasy by a Sudanese court.

Mrs Ibrahim’s father is Muslim so according to Sudan’s version of Islamic law she is also Muslim and cannot convert.

She was raised by her Christian mother and says she has never been Muslim.

Welcoming her at the airport, Italy’s Prime Minister Matteo Renzi said: “Today is a day of celebration.”

Mrs Ibrahim met Pope Francis at his Santa Marta residence at the Vatican soon after her arrival.

Surprise! Rockets Found At U.N. School In Gaza “Have Gone Missing”…

And by missing they mean they were given back to Hamas.

Via Times of Israel:

The UN secretary-general on Wednesday said he was “alarmed” to hear that rockets were placed in a UN-run school in Gaza and now “have gone missing,” and he demanded a full review of such incidents.

A statement by the spokesman for Ban Ki-moon expressed the UN chief’s “outrage and regret” at the placement of weapons at a site run by the global organization. The UN says that has happened at least twice so far in the current fighting.

“Those responsible are turning schools into potential military targets, and endangering the lives of innocent children,” UN staff and anyone seeking shelter, the statement said.

The rockets had been placed at one of the schools run by the UN refugee agency for Palestinians, the United Nations Relief and Works Agency in Gaza.

AWESOME! Maine GOP Gov. LePage To Make “Able-Bodied” Welfare Recipients Work For Their Food Stamps…

Libs recoil in horror!

(AJ) – Maine’s Republican governor on Wednesday launched a push to make more “able-bodied” people work for their food stamps.

“People who are in need deserve a hand up, but we should not be giving able-bodied individuals a handout,’’ said Gov. Paul R. LePage.

LePage will reportedly stop seeking a federal waiver — issued at the height of the Great Recession — allowing some food stamp recipients to bypass requirements that they work or volunteer, according to local news channel WCSH.

About 12,000 of the state’s residents receiving $15 million annually in food stamps are considered to be able-bodied by Maine’s Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), which administers the aid. That means that they are between the ages of 18 and 49, have no dependents and are not pregnant or disabled.

In the next three months, those who are deemed able-bodied must work or volunteer with a community organization for 20 hours a week or lose their aid.

We love her. Michelle and I love Janelle. We love her energy. We love her talent. But we most of all love her character.

Mooch Jabs Hillary: “I Don’t Believe One Family Should Be In The White House Or Running For Office Constantly”…

Cat fight!

Via Fox News:

Michelle Obama may not be having a blood feud with Hillary Clinton, but that doesn’t mean she’s crazy about another Clinton in the White House.

The first lady reportedly told people who attended a Manhattan fundraiser earlier in the month that she isn’t at war with either Hillary Clinton or her husband, the former president; however, people who were present say she took a swipe at Hillary Clinton’s presidential aspirations.

Obama’s comments came during a question-and-answer session at a fundraiser at the home of financier Charles Myers, according to people who were present.

When she was asked if she had any aspirations to run for office, Obama said “no” because her children need some time being out of the spotlight. Without mentioning Hillary Clinton’s name, she then added: “I don’t believe one family should be in the White House or running for office constantly,” according to the recollection of one person at the event.

The attendee tells FOX Business that he took the remarks as a snub against Clinton, though the questions soon shifted away from presidential politics to other matters including her husband’s presidential library, joking at one point that she’s going to donate “all my dresses there.”

Dem Senator Caught Plagiarizing: PTSD Made Me Do It

Update to this story.

Maybe it’s just me, but I find him blaming PTSD for being a liar and a cheat, yet still wanting people to vote for him and trust him, to be a bit disingenuous.

Via Fox:

A Montana senator who is running for re-election suggested Wednesday that medication he took for post-traumatic stress disorder after service in Iraq may have been responsible for apparently plagiarized passages in his thesis.

Montana Sen. John Walsh’s thesis, which was written to earn a master’s degree from the U.S. Army War College, contains unattributed passages taken word-for-word from previously published papers.

The Democrat also said he was dealing with the stress of a fellow veteran’s recent suicide.

Walsh said he made an unintentional mistake and did not intend to plagiarize.

“I don’t want to blame my mistake on PTSD, but I do want to say it may have been a factor,” Walsh told The Associated Press. “My head was not in a place very conducive to a classroom and an academic environment.”

Cook County Board Sends “Assault Weapons” Referendum To The Ballot

ILLINOIS_GOVERNOR_GUNS_44703275

Additional restrictions on law abiding citizens. Up next each block will have a block Captain with an MRAP to protect the citizens.

Via Chicago Sun Times

Cook County voters will get to say in November whether they believe the state should enact tougher gun laws, including an outright ban on the sale and transfer of assault weapons.

The non-binding referendum is one of two measures the Cook County Board voted Wednesday to place on the upcoming ballot.

Democratic board members unanimously supported the measure, which asks if the state should “require universal background checks for firearm transfers and prohibit the sale and transfer of assault weapons, assault weapon attachments and high capacity ammunition magazines?”

Gov. Pat Quinn also has called for a ban on future assault weapons sales and transfers, though the measure has failed to move forward in Springfield. The board’s placement of the question on the ballot comes as Quinn’s campaign has tried to hit Republican rival Bruce Rauner on the issue.

In a new online video by the Quinn campaign, TV news reports of Chicago violence are juxtaposed with video footage of Rauner saying he believes gun owners should be free to use assault weapons for “target practice … on their property as they choose fit.”

Board Republicans, including state GOP chairman Com. Tim Schneider, did not oppose the measure. Instead, they requested to be marked as “present” during the vote.

The other advisory referendum, sent to the ballot on a unanimous vote, was a measure calling for increased state mental health funding. The state has cut $187 million in funding – a move that has disproportionately affected the poor, commissioners said.

In Chicago alone, six state-run mental health centers have been shuttered, a county memo states.

For months, Sheriff Tom Dart has publicized the number of mentally ill inmates, who he says wind up in Cook County jail instead of mental health facilities.

Twitter Caves In To Jesse Jackson’s Racial Shakedown, Apologizes For Hiring Too Many White And Asian Men…

Jackson already gloating.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Twitter acknowledged Wednesday that it has been hiring too many white and Asian men to fill high-paying technology jobs, just like several other major companies in Silicon Valley.

The lack of diversity in Twitter’s workforce of roughly 3,000 people was spelled out in data released by the San Francisco company behind the popular short messaging service.

The breakdown revealed that 70 percent of Twitter’s worldwide workforce is composed of men. In the U.S., nearly 90 percent of Twitter’s workers are either white or Asian. Racial data wasn’t provided for the global workforce.

U.N. Says Islamic State Fatwa Orders All Women In Mosul To Undergo Female Genital Mutilation…

Muslim Woman

I’m sure this is going to go over well with the locals.

(Al Arabiya) – The al-Qaeda-Inspired Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) has ordered all girls and women between the ages of 11 and 46 in and around Iraq’s northern city of Mosul to undergo female genital mutilation, the United Nations said on Thursday.

“It is a fatwa (or religious edict) of ISIS, we learnt this this morning,” said Jacqueline Badcock, the number two U.N. official in Iraq.

The “fatwa” would potentially affect 4 million women and girls, Badcock told reporters in Geneva by videolink from Arbil.

“This is something very new for Iraq, particularly in this area, and is of grave concern and does need to be addressed,” she said, according to Reuters.

“This is not the will of Iraqi people, or the women of Iraq in these vulnerable areas covered by the terrorists,” she added.

DHS Chief: ‘Almost All’ Unaccompanied Alien Children Are Smuggled – ‘Nobody’s Freelancing’

Did he spend the night in a Holiday Inn Express?

Via CNS News

Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said on Tuesday that the majority of children who arrive at the U.S. Mexico border without parents are brought there by human smugglers.

“Almost all of them are smuggled, Johnson said at a press conference at Immigration and Customs Protection (ICE) headquarters in Washington, D.C.

CNSNews.com asked Johnson if he had statistics about how many of the more than 57,000 unaccompanied minors – mostly from Central America – streaming across the border in recent months were brought there by human traffickers.

“It’s our observation and our experience that almost all of them are smuggled,” Johnson said. “Nobody’s freelancing.”

Johnson said the smugglers “mislead families” by telling them they have a limited amount of time to get to the United States if they want to be allowed to stay. He also said families pay “exorbitant” prices to smugglers.

The press conference was held to tout the success of Operation Coyote, a 90-day “surge operation” being conducted by ICE’s Homeland Security Investigations to “target human smuggling operations in the Texas Rio Grande Valley” – the sector in Texas where most of the influx of illegal aliens is taking place.

A “fact sheet” of the operation – launched June 23 and data as of July 21 – was distributed. Facts included the arrest of 192 smugglers and the apprehension of 501 aliens. The fact sheet also stated that four firearms and 28 vehicles have been seized.

Poll: 58 Percent Say Obama Regime Is Incompetent At Managing The Government…

And then some.

Via Fox News:

Has the Obama administration competently and effectively managed the government? A Fox News poll released Wednesday finds a majority of American voters says no — including about a third of Democrats.

A 58-percent majority says the White House has not been competent at managing the federal government. Some 32 percent of Democrats join 67 percent of independents and 84 percent of Republicans in holding that view.

Forty percent of voters do say the administration has been competent at running the government.
