He [Trump] won’t leave on his own. Mass action everywhere is what’s needed.” — Michael Moore, on Instagram
We just had a “mass action” known as an election. You know, those things your Party can’t win anymore.

Academic “experts” continue their efforts to make students unemployable. Exhibit A: Clemson University [SC]’s latest adventure in “the soft bigotry of low expectations” — promoting the idea that “it’s wrong, and probably colonialist, to expect people to show up to a meeting on time,”
Is the Drive-By Media Good for America? (the answer: NO)
“The Mainstream and Conservative Media Are Living in Different Worlds. So Are Those Who Read Them.” — headline, The Los Angeles Times, 4/10/17
“Rush Limbaugh had a lot to do with creating those two separate worlds.” — Ted Koppel, “The Great Divide: Politics in the Age of Trump,” “cbs Sunday Morning,” 3/26/17
It’s said that those who can’t do, teach. But in New York, those who can’t learn, teach. According to The New York Times, the state Board of Regents will no longer require teachers to pass the Academic Literacy Skills Test [alst] to become certified. Makes sense. Why should teachers have to be literate? After all, “the [literacy] test proved controversial because black and Hispanic candidates passed it at significantly lower rates than white candidates.” This despite a federal judge ruling in 2015 that the alst literacy test was not biased, “because it measured skills that were necessary for teaching.” Well, that’s out the window now. The Regents also want teachers who fail the test measuring practical skills like lesson planning to be certified anyway, based on “recommendations.” No wonder The New York Post sneers that the new state education motto should be: “Dumbing Down.”

The sound you hear is the sobbing of duped Prius owners. According to Green Car Congress, a new study published in Atmospheric Environment — yes, you guessed it, one of my favorite journals —found that total emissions from electric vehicles equal emissions from internal combustion vehicles. For those of you in Rio Linda, that means electric cars aren’t any “cleaner” than gasoline-burners. Your Prius isn’t “saving the planet.” For once, this research team added in all the real-life pollution “costs” — they factored in the additional weight of electric vehicles, tire wear, brake wear, road wear, and road dust. Turns out, the electric cars generate more pollutants from road dust and road wear than cars that run on eeeevil gasoline, which balances out other factors. And these researchers didn’t even calculate for the source of the electricity that powers electric cars: fossil fuels. But don’t hold your breath that libs will ever ditch their Leaf or Volt. Snobbery will remain their driving force.

Please pray for the Al Lacey family. Bro. Lacey went to Heaven on June 25, 2016. The funeral will be at Landmark Baptist Church in Grand Junction, CO on July 7, 2016 @ 10:00 a.m. MDT.
We plan to do a special memorial on our web page later this week.
The Obama Regime has a new term for criminals: “justice-involved individuals.” And in a growing number of blue cities, justice-involved individuals are given cash to not commit crimes. Because when liberals are in charge, crime literally does pay. The Washington Postreports that Democrat-run cities are eager to copy a program in Richmond, CA which gives convicted felons up to $1,000 a month not to hold up liquor stores or break into houses. (Meanwhile good kids in the same community who attend school and don’t sell drugs get squat.) Take 21-year-old Lonnie Holmes — please. He’s been arrested for numerous violent offenses, and has done prison time. Thanks to Richmond’s “grand in your hand” program, Lonnie now spends his days tooling around in his 2015 Nissan Versa smoking weed with his homies. “So far, the attention — and money — seems to be working for Holmes,” chirps The Post. Other participants have been treated to expensive trips to London and South Africa, led by ex-con “mentors” who have unsupervised free rein over the program’s budget. Paying ransom to thugs — the new cash-for-killers program. And guess what we’ll get more of? Thugs.

"Laws that forbid the carrying of arms... disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes." —Cesare Beccaria, quoted by Thomas Jefferson in Commonplace Book
As the great economist Milton Friedman once said, “If you put the government in charge of the Sahara Desert, in five years there’d be a shortage of sand.”
