Poll Finds 'Common Core' Toxic, Teacher Support Plummets

A poll released on Tuesday by pro-Common Core Education Next (EdNext) confirms that support for the Common Core standards has declined in general, and that teacher support for the controversial standards has especially dropped dramatically since last year, with 76 percent of teachers having supported them in 2013 but only 46 percent in favor of them this year. 20 Aug 2014, 7:14 AM PDT

Bush In 2006: Withdrawal Would Turn Iraq Into Terrorist State

During a speech in August of 2006, the Associated Press reports that then-President George W. Bush warned of what now sounds like a premonition of what would happen in Iraq should the U.S. prematurely withdraw our troops, "If we leave Iraq before the job is done, it will create a terrorist state in the heart of the Middle East, a terrorist state much more dangerous than Afghanistan was before we removed the Taliban[.]" 20 Aug 2014, 5:42 AM PDT

Most Black Ferguson Residents Complaining of 'White Power Structure' Didn't Vote

After Michael Brown's death, left-wing activists, pundits, and the mainstream press have been blasting and maligning Ferguson's "white power structure," likening the city to a town in the Jim Crow South. They have lamented that though the city is nearly 70% black, "five of Ferguson’s six city council members are white" and "six of the local school board’s seven members are white." Ferguson's mayor, James Knowles, is also white. Even worse to the mainstream press and left-wing activists is that he's a Republican. 19 Aug 2014

We Need Law and Order, Not Sympathy for Rioters

After rioting broke out in the Watts section of Los Angeles in August 1965, concerned Republicans persuaded Ronald Reagan to run for governor on a stern “law and order” platform. The former movie star did exactly that, trouncing California Gov. Pat Brown by 15 percentage points, the biggest prize among the eight governorships that the GOP picked up in 1966. And the Gipper was on his way to the White House. 19 Aug 2014

25 Minutes of Hell

On Aug. 24, 2001, Air Transat Flight 236 ran out of fuel en route from Toronto to Lisbon with 306 passengers aboard. The right engine was leaky, and the crew had performed a delicate fuel imbalance procedure—incorrectly—from memory. Below stretched the Atlantic Ocean for hundreds of miles. As the interior lights flickered and oxygen masks dangled from the ceiling, weeping flight attendants instructed everyone to prepare for a crash landing into the sea. Then the pilot located a small military base in the Azores, and after 25 minutes of hell, the plane touched down—violently, but without badly injuring anyone—to tears and applause. (Also to flames: The wheels were on fire.) 19 Aug 2014

Ferguson: Obama's a Deer In the Headlights - And That's a Good Thing

Obama's clueless divisiveness is now a political liability. 'Looks like my son" and "acted stupidly" have become punchlines -- an easy shorthand to mock a highly partisan president who is in way over his head. The result is that in the wake of society unraveling in Ferguson, The OceanHealer looks unsure, uncomfortable, a little frightened, and incapable of being decisive. That's a good thing. With this president, that's when he's the least dangerous. 19 Aug 2014

New York Times Sours On Obama Executive Amnesty

The use of tear gas by Missouri law enforcement has caused a run on gas masks in the St. Louis area.

Katie Pavlich Takes Down the Feminist Marxists

As this memorable story from Horowitz's autobiography shows, radical feminists are not unaware of their hypocrisy. And in 2012, it reached a fevered pitch. After living through such an insufferable charade, Katie Pavlich had had enough. She was determined to fight back, and put her remarkable talent as a writer, reporter, and political warrior to work. The outcome is her enormously entertaining and hard hitting exposé Assault and Flattery: The Truth About the Left and Their War on Women. 18 Aug 2014

Gates-Funded Non-Profit to Oversee Common Core-Aligned Curriculum

For at least four years now, Common Core champions have been insisting that the new standards are “just standards, not curriculum.” States and local school districts, they say, can choose whatever curriculum they like. A new non-profit organization, however, has been tasked with reviewing classroom textbooks and other instructional materials to ensure they are aligned with the Common Core standards. 18 Aug 2014
