“ Gun control is the ultimate war on women. Firearms are the equalizer between the sexes. Sam Colt made us equal, indeed. This book explores that, the racist roots of gun control, and debunks the biggest arguments made by anti-gun extremists. The AR is on the cover because it is the most vilified, misunderstood rifle in America, responsible for the fewest crimes. Education is the antidote to ignorance. Consider this book the medicine.”

“A cellphone video has surfaced showing a police officer handcuffing a woman in her home while she’s wearing only a towel — which repeatedly fell off — and she and her teen daughter are screaming for him to stop.

But that may not be the worst of it.

An internal investigation by police in Chandler, Arizona, found that arresting Officer Doug Rose entered Esmeralda Rossi’s home illegally on March 25, didn’t turn on his body camera and failed to document important details regarding probable cause and use of force — and that Rossi was naked except for a towel. 

Now Rossi is planning to sue, KNXV-TV reported.

‘I felt helpless. I felt violated,’ Rossi told the station. ‘And honestly, I felt molested.’

Rose retired on May 29 with a full pension, KNXV reported, and he hasn’t been charged with any crime.” Excerpt from an article by Dave Urbanski, The Blaze

There goes Barack Obama again, changing all that is sacred and holy about America. At least that’s what the folks who spend their time commenting on right-wing sites are saying. What is it this time, you ask? It’s Denali, aka Mount McKinley. A little history is in order. The Alaskan mountain, which is the highest peak in North America, was named Denali by native Alaskans. It was given the name…

Kentucky’s First Black Statewide Official Describes How Watching Her Mom Live on Gov’t Assistance Turned Her Into a Conservative

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — Growing up in Detroit, in the years when she had a television, Jenean Hampton would use pancakes to bribe her friends to watch NASA astronauts leave this fuzzy black-and-white earth behind.

The near-sighted kid of divorced parents in one of the country’s largest cities buried herself in science fiction books and dreamed of escaping poverty to travel in space.

“I remember I was not as excited by the first black astronaut or the first female astronaut, I was excited by the first astronaut who wore glasses,” she said. “Because that meant I had a shot at it.”

Hampton never made it to space, but she did rise from an unemployed tea party activist who couldn’t win a state House race to become the first African-American to ever hold statewide office in Kentucky. Elected lieutenant governor alongside Republican Gov.-elect Matt Bevin, she joins Republican U.S. Sen. Tim Scott of South Carolina as the only black statewide elected officials in the South.

Republicans view her election as a rebuke to claims by some Democrats that President Barack Obama’s dismal approval ratings in the state are driven by race. Kentucky’s minority population is less than 10 percent, and the state had divided loyalties during the Civil War while never officially joining the Confederacy. The state Capitol has statues of both Abraham Lincoln and Confederate President Jefferson Davis in its rotunda.

But Hampton downplays her race, choosing to identify as a political outsider during a season of momentous change in politics in Kentucky.

“I’m aware of the historic significance. I get that. A lot of people are excited about that,” she said. “I’m probably more excited at the chance to encourage others, other non-politicians, to get into the game.”

Hampton was born in Detroit in 1958, where she and her three sisters were raised by their mother after her parents divorced when she was 7. She made good grades in school but said she was “pressured to fail” by other black kids who accused her of “trying to be white.” But Hampton now says she sees that same dynamic with white families in Kentucky’s poor counties.

“These kids that made fun of my good grades, made fun of the way I spoke, the fact that I was reading all the time, even when a book report wasn’t required, even my choice in music,” she said. “I just remember wondering, at what point in my life would I get to just be Jenean, with my own likes and dislikes?”

Hampton left her home, spending seven years as an officer in the Air Force, including a deployment during Operation Desert Storm in the early 1990s. She met her husband in the Air Force, in which her assignments included emergency medical operations for the space shuttle at Patrick Air Force base, getting Hampton close to the rockets that shaped the dreams of her childhood.

She lost her sales job in 2012 and decided to spend her free time volunteering for political causes, becoming active in the state’s tea party movement. She challenged the former Speaker of the Kentucky House of Representatives in 2014 and lost badly.

Growing up, Hampton’s family was poor and often received government services. But the experience later led Hampton to join the tea party movement, where she quickly found a home for policy views shaped by watching her mother interact with social services. She said she wished the workers would have helped her mother get a GED, teach her valuable job skills and help her practice interviewing.

“I just didn’t see how they were helping her,” Hampton said. “It just made me aware, or made me question, are we truly, truly helping people if all we are giving them is a check?”

Her views have put her at odds with the state’s black leaders, including the Kentucky chapter of the NAACP, who say government has a constructive role in helping pull black people out of poverty. Hampton opposes raising the minimum wage, the expansion of Medicaid under the federal Affordable Care Act and the Common Core educational standards that Kentucky and other states have adopted.

“Affordable health care, not only helps African-Americans, it helps those who have not had health care coverage in the past,” Kentucky NAACP President Raul Cunningham said. “I don’t think she will help African-American causes.”

She also has questioned the authority of the U.S. Supreme Court, saying in a debate earlier this year she wondered if it “is the final arbiter on anything,” adding: “If that were true, I would still be a slave.”

Other black leaders, including Pastor Jerry Stephenson in Louisville’s West End community, have praised Hampton for her support of charter schools, which the NAACP opposes because leaders say it would drain resources from public education.

“That is one of the greatest gifts she can give to not only the children of color but to every child,” Stephenson said.

Hampton dismissed Cunningham’s criticism, saying she tends “not to see color” and will promote policies that help everyone.

“I don’t have a special definition of freedom and liberty because I’m black,” she said. “We will be focused on improving opportunity for all Kentuckians, not just one subset.”

This Could Be One of the Best Cases Ever Made Against Common Core – No One Expected It to Come From a High School Student

Speaking at a local school board meeting earlier this month, a Tennessee high school senior issued a brief and incredibly insightful address on the problems with Common Core standards.

Ethan Young, a student at Farragut High School in Knox County, Tenn., made his case as to why he believes the school district should drop the new national education standards, a set of guidelines that were never voted on by Congress, the Department of Education nor by local or state governments.

“The president essentially bribed states into implementation via ‘Race to the Top,’ offering $4.35 billion taxpayer dollars to participating states, $500 million of which went to Tennessee,” Young said. “And much like No Child Left Behind, the program promises national testing and a one-size-fits-all education, because hey, it worked so well the first time.”

“If nothing else, these standards are a glowing conflict of interest and they lack the research they allegedly received,” he added.

Young also argued that Common Core standards display a “mistrust of teachers,” a line that prompted applause from the audience.

“I stand before you because I care about education, but also because I want to support my teachers,” he said. “And just as they fought for my academic achievement, so I want to fight for their ability to teach. This relationship is at the heart of instruction, yet there will never be a system by which it is accurately measured.”

The high school senior went on to argue that “standards-based education is ruining the way we teach and learn.” He also revealed that legislators and administrators have told him “that’s just the way things work.”

Now, he’s daring to ask: “Why?”

“I’m gonna answer that question: Bureaucratic convenience,” he added. “It works with nuclear reactors, it works with business models, why can’t it work with students? I mean how convenient, calculating exactly who knows what and who needs what. I mean, why don’t we just manufacture robots instead of students? They last longer and they always do what they’re told.”

The problem is, the extremely bright student continued, “education is unlike every other bureaucratic institute in our government” because the “task of teaching is never quantifiable.”

“If everything I learn in high school is a measurable objective, I have not learned anything,” Young proclaimed. “I’d like to repeat that. If everything I learn in high school is a measurable objective, I have not learned anything.”

Government bureaucrats will never be able to measure “creativity, appreciation, inquisitiveness” but they are the “purpose of education,” he lectured.

“Somewhere our Founding Fathers are turning in their graves — pleading, screaming and trying to say to us that we teach to free minds. We teach to inspire. We teach to equip, the careers will come naturally.”
