    The education cartel…gee, they don’t listen to black rap?

    Novels by Harper Lee and Mark Twain have been pulled from school syllabuses in Minnesota over fears their use of racial slurs will upset students.

    The Duluth school district said it was removing To Kill a Mockingbird and The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn from its curriculum because their content may make students feel “humiliated or marginalised”.

    The school district, which includes more than 20 schools, said it will keep copies of the classic novels in its libraries but will be removing the texts on its curriculum for its ninth and 11th-grade English classes in the next academic year.

      • It’s such a non-story. Every year some extremist gets elected to a local school board and they push to ban a famously controversial book (Huckleberry Finn, The Color Purple, Catcher in the Rye, Basketball Diaries etc.). The next year, the person on the school board gets defeated or quits and the book goes back into the lesson plans. Ignorance is resilient, and there’s always some bozo who thinks students haven’t ever been exposed to bad words or “dangerous ideas” before. (*sigh*)

        When I was a HS Senior (in the Jurassic Period), some school board ditz tried banning “Our Bodies, Ourselves” from the Health class curriculum. It stuck, for almost a whole semester!

      My schooling included a plentiful amount of Charles Dickens novels in the curricula. Dickens chronicled the appalling conditions of the lower indigent classes of his time. Instead of feeling victimized by his stories we students learned to appreciate how fortunate we were to enjoy the progress of modern conveniences and generally kinder attitudes of officialdom. Why is Minnesota education by passing the lessons of history in favor of feelings?

        There is a report from Jordan Sekulow…he has a different idea:

        Jordan Sekulow: “Again, two weeks and a day later, her last act as National Security Advisor on the day President Trump is being inaugurated, the minutes she has left in the White House, she memorializes a meeting from two weeks ago. I tend to believe Shannon, this is my honest belief on this, is that this was Susan Rice’s attempt to blunt someone who either saw this meeting taking place. It may have been someone on the outskirts of the meeting, not a principal but someone who attended and ultimately this would come up. So she wanted to memorialize it so it did not look like something the White House under the Obama administration was trying to hide.”

        I explained earlier and you were one of the people that “liked” my comment actually.

        Look at the big picture, whats the takeaway from the email? On the face of it? We learn what the purpose of the meeting itself was.

        After their “big” meeting with the IC, Obama convenes a small meeting With Biden, Comey, Yates and Rice in th Oval Office. Why?

        Well we have:

        1st paragraph: “We had a meeting”

        2nd paragraph: “Pres said to do it by the book”

        3rd paragraph: “From a national security perspective, however, President Obama said he wants to be sure that, as we engage with the incoming team, we are mindful to ascertain if there is any reason that we cannot share information fully as it relates to Russia.”

        Translation: “HOWEVER, Pres said we can’t necessarily disclose everything to the next admin.”

        I think THIS 3rd paragraph is the whole point of this email, and the whole point of the little meeting in the Oval Office. There is nothing else extraordinary in the email. This one sentence paragraph, with the word HOWEVER, stands out to me. She is saying that the President told us that we can’t necessarily disclose everything to the next admin. We do everything else “by the book”, but we can’t share the classified info “by the book”.

        4th paragraph: Classified/redacted; Has House intel committee seen this paragraph? Footer said its part of Presidential record, which remains classified I thought.

        5th part: Back to how they share info with the next admin. Obama asks Comey to keep him posted of anything that would affect how they share classified info to the Trump team. Comey says ok.

        The very next day is when Comey meets PEOTUS for the first time in Trump Tower.

        Considering that this email was sent minutes after Trump was sworn in, it may have in fact been her way of saving herself and throwing Obama under the bus.

        She just told the world that Obama ordered them to hide an active investigation, an investigation under purview of the executive branch, from the incoming administration.

            This may tie into what Jordan Sekulow is thinking. I posted down thread. He thought the email was to some underling who may or may not have attended the meeting.

            I wonder if Rice, who is ‘leaving’, sent that message to herself as a decoy…but by copying her IT specialist…is letting out the word to the undersecretaries, who may be staying…you must keep hidden the method by which the ‘Russia Dossier’ information has been gathered. She is not really talking about Russia. ‘Russia’ has always been the code word for the fake dossier.

            This was an intelligence underground. Laundered info through the President’s Daily Briefing. But that had to change.

            And maybe this REALLY makes the Evelyn Farkas comment more sinister. Maybe Evelyn Farkas and company were instructed to keep the intelligence underground going but reorganize so the Trump Admin could not find out. “That’s why all of the leaking”, said Evelyn Farkas.

            Maybe we should see where that email went after Susan Rice copied it to Mr. Pajama Suit, her IT specialist.

            Maybe he forwarded it to the other people on the PDB list who were sticking around. It was a warning and set of instructions.

            OK, taking my tinfoil off for awhile.

    ON the Wray testimony today, if you did not see it. He was questioned by Widen. ANd keep in mind that there are unconfirmed reports that Porter may have been up for a promotion, taking the place of Ted Carroll who is going over to Drug Enforcement.

    “Wray told lawmakers at a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing that the FBI followed established protocols and submitted a partial report on Porter in March 2017, followed by a “completed” background investigation in late July.

    Wray acknowledged there were follow-ups. “Soon thereafter, we received request for follow-up inquiry and we did the follow-up and provided that information in November and … we administratively closed the file in January,” he said.

    Wray added that the FBI obtained “additional information” this month, which they in turn passed to the White House.”

    “The AP reports that it takes approximately four months for clearance to access “secret” information and nine-to-10 months for “top-secret” clearance.”

    Video of the exchange
    http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2018/02/13/fbi-boss-says-rob-porter-background-check-completed-last-year-despite-white-house-claims.html

    “CNN reported that he was also being considered for deputy chief of staff, replacing Jim Carroll, who is leaving the post after three months to head the Office of National Drug Control Policy.”

    http://amp.fox13memphis.com/news/trending-now/reports-rob-porter-close-to-promotion-when-he-resigned-after-abuse-allegations/699209071

    Consider the source, but if true, was there a first background check that might have been clean or cleaned up, and was there a second background check for an upgrade to the clearance, when all of this surfaced?

    Also, Sarah Sanders said today during her press beating that there is an internal WH career-staffed office that coordinates with the FBI for all clearances.

    Even though the allegations were old, is it possible that the FBI dismissed or hid them the first time?

      Fantastic! Roughly 10% of food stamps/SNAP goes to soda which provides 0 nutrition and actually causes health problems … which we then have to pay for via medicaid, etc. I see it every time I go to the grocery in our small town – lots of soda and junk food in many carts that then use SNAP at the checkout. Of course, not everyone does and those people will not mind the convenience of healthy food being delivered.

      One problem we see is that people buy soda and then resell it at 1/2 the store price and use the cash for drugs. The children go hungry. Sad. This new program, or at least eliminating soda, chips, ready made cookies, candy and ice cream would put all of the money tax payers are giving their poorer fellow citizens to much better use of actual food.
      We need SNAP reform of some sort!

      I can’t see it working. What do you do if someone has dietary restrictions? Also this seems to be highly susceptible to cronyism. The contents of the food is going to be determined by lobbying by food companies. While its possible economies of scale will allow a lower cost, I think the opposite will be true.

      I also doubt it’ll be healthy considering our government already promotes and subsidizes unhealthy diets.

It’s a manufacturers dream to have to have their product required to be purchased in order to comply with the law.

          You don’t think Nabisco, Kellog, General Mills, and other food companies would try to get their foods included in this program?

        Why not? Everyone is accustomed to handling dietary restrictions these days. Don’t know why this couldn’t meet that requirement.

        The government does promote unhealthy diets, but the amount of fraud in the SNAP program would make your head spin. I doubt that more than about ten percent of the people are using their SNAP benefits and earnestly attempting to eke out a healthy food plan for their family so they don’t all starve.

        In short, I can’t see how the government could possibly do worse than they are now.

        However, just as a finale I’ll say this. When I worked for an agency that provided food assistance, we often heard from the applicants that they needed help immediately we just had to get them their food stamps right away.

        So we maintained onsite a small food pantry with foodstuffs donated by the staff. When someone claimed to be in urgent need, we’d give them a bag of groceries. Every day, every single day, we’d walk outside the front door and find a bag or two of the groceries we’d provided tossed on the ground. Apparently not really needed right away, after all. Or at all.

        The key is: Did the Police come to the incident. Believe me. Most if not all Police Departments are instructed. In domestic violence calls if there is any evidence of abuse, the abuser is arrested on the spot. Scratches, black eyes, any marks of violence at all.
        Even If no evidence of abuse the police interview the subjects separately and if even an admission of abuse, with no physical evidence..they are arrested. That is one of the reasons why so many police are attacked during domestic violence calls. The abuser knows they are going to jail and sees no way out.
        No police report…should be no case…unless he admits it.

  33. No doubt McCabe thought this was done, since the FBI cleared him on this (or, should I say he cleared himself):
    https://truepundit.com/inspector-general-probes-1-25-million-mccabe-received-clinton-insiders-fbis-hillary-investigation/
    The Inspector General probing the FBI is taking a very close look at over $1.2 million donated by Hillary Clinton-backed campaign bundlers to the political coffers of Dr.Jill McCabe, the wife of defrocked FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, federal sources confirm, at the same time McCabe was spearheading the Bureau’s investigation into Hillary Clinton.

    I apologize if this has been previously mentioned; but I stopped to look at American Thinker on my way here. A few nods to the Sundance and the “regulars” here for the in depth research that is available.
    There was also an article from Clarice Feldman concerning the Judge that is now in charge of the General Flynn “matter”. ( https://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2018/02/the_great_flynn_case_mystery.html )
    This may have been discussed here previously, but I missed it. Apparently Judge Sullivan was the judge in the Sen Ted Stevens case. As a result of him finding out that the Federal Prosecutors failed to live up to their Constitutional and ethical requirements concerning evidence, he now adds a specific admonishment to the prosecution in all criminal cases he handles. In the case of Gen Flynn, he added this to the order after he was assigned the case:
    FTA:”Finally, if the government has identified any information which is favorable to the defendant but which the government believes is not material, the government shall submit the material to the Court for in camera review.”

    Now makes sense to me why the sentencing was delayed. Perhaps the one judge left, other than the Bundy judge, that will hold the Federal Attorney’s accountable. And knowing their evidence would not stand up to any real scrutiny, they decided to punt.

    And when the IG report comes out, the thought is this will give Mueller a “clean” way to drop the case entirely and close up the store.

    But you guys had already told me that. Was just nice to see it being provided to a wider audience.

    Well, the dreams have ended in heartbreak for one three year old who was being transported by ambulance along with his mom to a hospital in NC.

    They were struck by an illegal invader and his passenger who attempted to flee the scene. The driver was so drunk two hours later he was more than twice the limit and has never had a driver’s license. He is 27. I wonder if he is one of the 1.8 million the Senate is discussing legalizing?

    “…The boy was being taken to the hospital trauma center around 1am Sunday when a drunk driver – who turned out to be an illegal immigrant – hit the medical transport, causing it to roll over on its side, police said.

    The driver, 27-year-old Jose Martin Duran Romero and his passenger, 33-year-old Andres Leon, initially tried to flee the scene. A witness stopped one of the men from leaving while the other was quickly apprehended by police.

    Two hours after the crash, Romero submitted to a breathalyzer and registered more than two times the legal limit of alcohol in his system. Police also learned that he is in the country illegally and that he has never had a driver’s license….”
