THE MROTD:  The Myth of the Helpless Parent

Parents have been trained for decades to trust in America’s K-12 government schools. This trust now serves the districts but not the students within them. Most districts aren’t being held accountable for violations of the law; failures to properly educate children; improper spending of tax dollars; or long-term refusals to tell citizens the truth.

Many districts seem increasingly dictatorial, deceitful, expensive and intrusive. We trust them with our children, and in return, they lie to us, miseducate our children and blame us for their failures. When we question them, some even attack us, using government/media/corporate allies to help pile on. They retain power in the way schoolyard bullies do, by ensuring that parents remain cowed, isolated and uninformed. It’s ironic. In reality, parents have all of the power.

Most parents don’t know that. Schools have purposefully fostered a sense of helplessness in parents (and in students and teachers), training us to believe that we must do as we’re told. Schools couldn’t eliminate parents altogether, but they could create parents who agree to eliminate themselves.

#IRS SCANDAL UPDATE

#IRS SCANDAL UPDATE:  Z Street: The Case Which Could Blow Open The IRS Scandal

Ironically Z Street’s case received a boost last summer when Democrats tried to defend the administration and prove the IRS was not just engaging in viewpoint discrimination against politically conservative groups. As part of its defense, the Democrats on the House Ways and Means Committee and Senator Sander Levin (D-MI)​ released 14 IRS documents indicating the IRS created a category for review it labeled “progressive.”

Within that “progressive category” there was a subset labeled  “occupied territory advocacy ”  (page 12 of linked document) That particular subset contained only one organization: Z Street. According to the documents, a notice to IRS inspectors to “be on the look out” (BOLO) for groups under this category was sent on August 6, 2010, just days after Z Street’s file was reviewed.

In other words, the IRS was indeed singling out applications for tax exempt status on the basis of a particular political viewpoint, advocating for the “occupied territories” which is inconsistent with this administration’s.

#IRS SCANDAL UPDATE: Lois Lerner’s Former FEC Colleague Has Emails Go Missing Too

The Federal Election Commission recycled the computer hard drive of April Sands — a former co-worker of Lois Lerner’s — hindering an investigation into Sands’ partisan political activities, according to the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.

Sands resigned from the Federal Election Commission in April after she admitted to violating the Hatch Act, which bars executive branch employees from engaging in partisan political activities on federal time and at federal facilities.

The twist is that Sands also worked under Lois Lerner when the ex-IRS agent — who is currently embroiled in a scandal over the targeting of conservative political groups — worked at the FEC’s enforcement division.

Cover-up. This is what it looks like.

FREE SPEECH: Eric Holder Gets Serious About Limiting Speech, Investigates Obama Outhouse Parade Float

“The U.S. Department of Justice is investigating a float that appeared at the annual Fourth of July parade in the small town of Norfolk, Neb. because the float featured a blue flatbed truck carrying a zombie-looking mannequin in overalls on the door of an outhouse labeled “OBAMA PRESIDENTIAL LIBRARY.

The Community Relations Service team investigates disputes concerning discrimination.

The Justice Department bureaucrat attended a meeting on Thursday about the float fracas. Also in attendance at the meeting were representatives of the NAACP, the town mayor and members of The Independent Order of Odd Fellows, the group that organizes the yearly parade.

The man behind the controversial float, Dale Remmich, has explained that the overalls-clad mannequin in front of the outhouse represented himself — not President Barack Obama. The point he was trying to make concerned his frustration with Obama’s mismanagement of the Veterans Affairs Department.”

NANNY OF THE MONTH:  TX School: Better to Burn Kids Than Allow “Toxic” Sunscreen! (Nanny of the Month, 6-14)

Video description:

Government busybodies teach one book-loving little boy a hard lesson about the letter of the law when his miniature “library” runs afoul of city codes, while the control freaks across the pond work to keep jolly old England jolly by banning memorial plaques in public parks because they’re “too depressing,” and one school district decides that protecting students from sunscreen is more important than protecting them from the sun. Check out Nanny of the Month for June 2014!

This month’s top dishonor goes to a San Antonio, TX school district that stands by its ban on sunscreen despite one 10-year-old student experiencing a sunburn on a class field trip after a teacher confiscated the dangerous lotion.

“Sunscreen is a toxic substance, and we can’t allow toxic substances to be in our school,” said North East Independent District spokesperson Aubrey Chancellor. “They could possibly have an allergic reaction [or] they could ingest it. It’s really a dangerous situation.”

More dangerous than a sunburn? More dangerous than skin cancer, which, incidentally, the student’s grandfather passed away from recently?

LEADING FROM BEHIND: Obama sends 275 US forces to Iraq

WASHINGTON (Associated Press) -

The United State is deploying up to 275 military troops to Iraq to protect the U.S. Embassy and other American interests and is considering sending a contingent of special forces soldiers as Iraq struggles to repel a rampant insurgency, officials said Monday. The White House insisted anew the U.S. would not be sending combat troops and thrusting America into a new Iraq war.

President Barack Obama, in a formal report to Congress, said the troops in the deployment he was announcing would be equipped for combat and would remain in Iraq until the security situation improved. About 160 troops are already in Iraq, including 50 Marines and more than 100 Army soldiers. Some of those soldiers have only recently arrived.

Under the authorization Obama outlined Monday, a U.S. official said, the U.S. would put an additional 100 soldiers in a nearby third country where they would be held in reserve until needed.

BENGHAZI UPDATE

BENGHAZI UPDATE:  U.S. Forces Capture Key Benghazi Suspect

U.S. operatives captured a senior suspect in the 2012 attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, in a nighttime raid on Libyan soil that set the stage for a high-profile trial of an alleged terrorist in U.S. civilian court.

The suspect, Ahmed Abu Khatallah, is being interrogated outside the U.S. by a special group of intelligence investigators, said U.S. officials familiar with the case. Mr. Khatallah is the most prominent of those wanted in the attack on two U.S. compounds, in which four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens, were killed.

 

What a timely capture, given what is going on in Iraq and in Ukraine. Obama needed a win, even if it means totally blowing his YouTube Video excuse.

#BENGHAZI:  US spy agencies heard Benghazi attackers using State Dept. cell phones to call terrorist leaders

 

The terrorists who attacked the U.S. consulate and CIA annex in Benghazi on September 11, 2012 used cell phones, seized from State Department personnel during the attacks, and U.S. spy agencies overheard them contacting more senior terrorist leaders to report on the success of the operation, multiple sources confirmed to Fox News.

The disclosure is important because it adds to the body of evidence establishing that senior U.S. officials in the Obama administration knew early on that Benghazi was a terrorist attack, and not a spontaneous protest over an anti-Islam video that had gone awry, as the administration claimed for several weeks after the attacks.

 

But but… it was a YouTube video!

Too many who are allegedly on the Right fall far too quickly for leftist tricks and then react stupidly instead of taking a few moments to consider wtf they are stepping in. I’m looking at YOU, Wall Street Journal useful idiots!

Originally posted on The Daley Gator:

Remember I said that Liberalism is an ideology for lies and liars? Well, here is further proof that I am, again, correct! At The Other McCain, we see the Left using Eric Cantors defeat in his primary as proof of Right Wing bigotry

the Left instantly created a narrative that this represented some kind of neo-Nazi tendency of Brat’s libertarian-leaning Tea Party supporters. There are a few obvious problems with this claim, of course:

  1. Libertarianism is the exact opposite of Nazi totalitarianism;
  2. It is the Left that supports terroristic Jew-haters in the Middle East and it was the Left that spent eight years claiming that the Bush administration was in the thrall of Jewish “neocons” who allegedly promoted the Iraq War for nefarious purposes;
    and
  3. Some analysts say that Brat beat Cantor because of a surge ofDemocrats voting for Brat in Virginia’s “open” GOP primary.
