Scott Walker and Campus Sexual Assault

The Leftists' latest attack on Scott Walker: He delivered a "gutpunch for advocates for assault victims: provisions to end requirements for colleges and universities to report sexual assaults on campus to state law enforcement."

Walker’s AG and Undergrads Hate His Sex Assault Cut: The 2016 Hopeful Just Made a Bunch of Enemies

The shocking language was first discovered by Jezebel on Friday. Walker’s proposed budget stipulates the deletion of “the requirement that any person employed at an institution who witnesses a sexual assault on campus or receives a report from a student enrolled in the institution that the student has been sexually assaulted report the assault to the dean of students.”

Walker also aims to “delete the requirement that each institution report annually to the Department of Justice (DOJ) statistics on sexual assaults” in a bill section on page 508 in a section titled, “Delete Language Related to Sexual Assault Information and Reporting.”

His previously unnoticed attempt to delete the requirement of reporting sexual assault to new students and the state’s Department of Justice may be the governor’s ploy to pick a fight with the federal government. Under the Clery Act, any school that receives public funding must report sexual assault incidences to the federal Department of Justice, so Walker’s proposal goes just short of explicitly violating Title IX regulations—and it still may be crossing a legal line.

And many of Walker’s constituents—and some who work in powerful positions in the state—think Walker has picked the wrong fight.

One of the state universities, the University of Wisconsin at Whitewater, is already being investigated by the Department of Education for violating Title IX with its failure to investigate and respond to campus sexual assault.

Furthermore, even Republican Wisconsin Attorney General Brad Schimel has expressed reservations about Walker’s proposal. His office told The Daily Beast in a statement that the Attorney General “is concerned about some of the provisions in the budget that may reduce information provided to college students and take away reporting requirements. He will work with representatives from UW and the Governor’s office to determine what prompted these changes and to ensure that we provide all of the protection we reasonably can for our college students.”


That backfired on the Walker haters, including all the Leftist media loons who chose to run with the story.


It should come as no surprise that the former spokesman for Wisconsin's Democrat party is still trying to push this false narrative about Walker, ISIS, and protesters.

Apparently, lies and distortions are their best hope.


UPDATE: Daily Beast retracts story on Scott Walker
The Daily Beast’s correction and retraction is posted in full below. The “USA Today” story it references, however, is actually an AP article posted on the site:

“A Daily Beast college columnist at the University of Wisconsin based this article off a Jezebel posting which was incorrectly reported. Jezebel updated their post on Saturday with the following after USA Today [sic] published a story debunking Jezebel’s account and clarifying Gov. Scott Walker’s position. ‘UPDATE: After Jezebel ran this item yesterday, a spokesman for the University of Wisconsin came forward—over two weeks after the budget was released—to clarify: the University requested that Gov. Walker delete the requirements because efforts were redundant with their compliance of the Cleary Act. Scott Walker’s camp assures that he’s committed to protecting victims.’

The Daily Beast is committed to covering the news fairly and accurately, and we should have checked this story more thoroughly. We deeply regret the error and apologize to Gov. Walker and our readers. This story should be considered retracted.”

The Daily Beast did not include the last two sentences of Jezebel’s ‘update’, which were added later:

“We reported this piece without full context, and while this piece conveys factual information, omission of that context for that information presents an unfair and misleading picture. We regret the error and apologize.”
What fools! Such buffoonery!

Scott Walker CPAC 2015 Speech

Watch complete video of Scott Walker's CPAC speech and the Q&A session:

Did you catch some of the lines from Walker's three-peat victory speech back on November 4, 2014?

Walker certainly appears comfortable and confident. He speaks without notes, no teleprompter.

The crowd liked what he had to say.

It looks like this is really happening.

"Run, Scott, run!"

Union Right-To-Work Protesters

Once again, the union protesters in Madison show their true colors.

From Media Trackers:

On the day the Wisconsin State Senate passed Right to Work legislation by a vote of 17-15, union protesters at the State Capitol put on a R-rated display of the civility those in the statehouse have come to expect.

Very nice.

Greendale High School, Larissa Yankovich: French Class Leftist Propaganda

We have another teacher at a suburban Milwaukee Public High School pushing Leftist tripe on her students.

Mark Belling brought this story to his audience's attention on his radio program on Wednesday, after a student contacted him about a disturbing assignment. It's something Belling considers to be "way worse" than the Nathan Hale High School worksheet that made national news.

The student attends Greendale High School. He had an assignment requiring him to research five "facts." The student was told to come up with ways to deal with each of the five "facts," devising a plan to manage the problems.

The assignment is for a unit titled "conservation," although the student says it should be titled "global warming."

Here are the "facts" the student was told to address:

1. The United States is 5 percent of the world's population but consumes 24 percent of the world's resources.

2. Eighty percent of the world's forests have already been cut down.

3. Every American creates 4.3 pounds of waste every day.

4. Ninety-nine percent of the things we buy we stop using after six months.

5. In the United States, we throw away 2.5 million plastic bottles every hour.

The student pointed out that the "facts" are highly questionable. Many of the terms in the statements aren't defined, rendering the "facts" impossible to address. Furthermore, even if one assumes that the statements are factual, why should one assume they are problems in need of solutions?

Yes, this assignment is typical Leftist drivel, another attempt to indoctrinate students, pushing the Leftist mindset on them.

Another Leftist teacher is using her classroom as a forum for spreading Leftist ideology.

We've come to expect this sort of propaganda being taught as gospel in social studies or science classes.

The real outrageousness of this "conservation" unit lies in the fact that it's being taught in FRENCH class.

Students need to complete the assignment, addressing the five "facts," in the French language.

I understand the benefit of having students exhibit their ability to communicate in French.

What I don't understand is why the teacher, Larissa Yankovich, is using her French class to push an entire unit on global warming, including a vocabulary sheet with the French words for global warming, the ecology movement, renewable, recycle, etc.

Actually, I do understand why Yankovich is doing it.  She is proselytizing.

The student told Belling that this subject was not in his book. Yankovich went out of her way to include this material in her lessons.

So, Yankovich transformed her French class into an opportunity to teach the Leftist environmental agenda.

Out of line, isn't it?

At Greendale High School, students can't even escape Leftist political teaching in a foreign language class.

As with the Nathan Hale incident, I'm glad this was exposed.

Taxpayers have a right to know what their hard-earned dollars are funding. 

Students at Greendale are being taught to be good Leftist soldiers-- in FRENCH class.

Abortion Interactive Website

Let's play!

From This is Fusion: Choose your choice; Fertile Ground: An interactive journey through an unintended pregnancy.

Kristine Marsh, NewsBusters, explains:
This is Fusion has come up with an interactive “Choose your own adventure” game about, of all things, getting an abortion. You remember, those stories where you choose at the end of each chapter, what should happen next?

Finally, feminists have found a way to make talking about abortion, fun! After all, they’ve already made an “abortion comedy,” why not make it a game as well?

Of course, the goal of the game is to show you how hard and awful it is to live in certain states, such as South Dakota, because of abortion regulations there.

Called, “Choose your choice; Fertile Ground: An interactive journey through an unintended pregnancy” the story starts by asking the reader to, “Imagine you’ve traded lives with a young woman in South Dakota, on the cusp of an important decision. Her fate is in your hands.”

As you move through the game, the decision to keep the baby proves to be the absolute worst decision you could make. You end up poor and constantly ill, with no support from the father or your family. Oh, and your baby was born premature with medical problems too.

But trying to get an abortion isn’t easy either. Of course, the only remaining local Planned Parenthood just closed because of those super-strict abortion laws just passed in your state; so now you have to go to the pharmacy to do it yourself. You face judgement from the “grandfatherly type” pharmacist who lies and tells you they don’t have any Plan B in stock. Finally you pay the exorbitant price of $49.99 at another pharmacy to end that growing life in you and phew, dodged that bullet!
"Imagine you’ve traded lives with a young woman in South Dakota, on the cusp of an important decision. Her fate is in your hands."

Well, let's also imagine, in the frame of the "interactive journey," the unborn baby's fate "is in your hands."

The game promotes the path to abortion as the correct choice. It attempts to trap one into believing that choosing life guarantees misery.

It doesn't. Abortion, however, does guarantee death for the unborn baby.

Aborting a pregnancy guarantees there are no second chances. It can't be undone. There's no hope for a bright future. It is a dead end.

That reality of abortion isn't included in this interactive abortion game, nor is the reality of "choice."

Abortions For Illegal Alien Children In U.S.

Hey, taxpayers!

Your tax dollars will be used to fund abortions for "unaccompanied children" in the U.S.

From CNSNews:

Health and Human Service’s Office of Refuge Resettlement (ORR) has confirmed to that abortion is one of the emergency medical services that must be made available by federally funded caregivers of illegal alien unaccompanied minors (Unaccompanied Children or UC) who have been sexually assaulted and become pregnant.

HHS issued a new regulation on “sexual abuse and sexual harassment” of unaccompanied children on Dec. 24, 2014, and although the regulation does not specially name abortion as one of the required emergency medical services, an official from HHS’ Administration for Children and Families, which operates ORR, told via email that abortion is one of those services.

...As reported earlier, the HHS regulation also includes “emergency contraception,” which includes abortion-inducing drugs such as Plan B One Step, which can prevent a fertilized egg from implantation.

“This IFR proposes standards and procedures to prevent, detect, and respond to sexual abuse and sexual harassment involving unaccompanied children (UCs) in ORR’s care provider facilities,” the regulation says.

The regulation adds: “Care provider facilities must provide UC victims of sexual abuse timely, unimpeded access to emergency medical treatment, crisis intervention services, emergency contraception, and sexually transmitted infections prophylaxis, in accordance with professionally accepted standards of care, where appropriate under medical or mental health professional standards.”

According to the Center for Family and Human Rights, or CFAM, this regulation applies to the many faith-based charities and organizations that are opposed to abortion and abortion-inducing drugs based on their religious convictions.

HHS addressed this moral objection in the regulation by suggesting that organizations could abate those concerns by partnering with others to provide medical services, including ORR itself.

...Providers must comply with the rule by June 24, 2015, according to the Federal Register.
Don't worry, religious organizations morally opposed to abortion.

The government will partner with you so you don't have to perform those "medical treatments."

But we're still forced to pay.

Graeme Zielinski, Scott Walker, Right-To Work

The Leftists are so inconsistent.

They apply and ignore standards at will.

There are different rules for Republicans and Democrats.

I guess when Obama declared that marriage was between one man and one woman that only applied to his first term and the first part of his second term, right?

Reporters should have asked, "For what period of time will your stance on gay marriage last?"

According to Leftists, Obama's documented lies were a good thing. "Sometimes, lying does pay."

For Democrats, lying is a shrewd and worthy exercise. For Republicans, "evolving" is "oily."

If Graeme Zielinski, former spokesman for the Democratic Party of Wisconsin, and Dan Bice, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, are going to whine about Scott Walker's change regarding right-to-work legislation, then they should whine about Obama's various statements that didn't hold up over time.

Lie of the century. The century is young, but it's such a whopper I think it may retain the title.

Christian Genocide

Mark Arabo, human rights activist and spokesman for the Chaldean Catholic community, is trying to get Obama and his administration to act.

MARK ARABO: This is a full blown genocide. The reports we're getting on the ground are one of mass casualties, beheadings, rapes, persecutions. It's a full blown Christian genocide, and a Christian holocaust within our midst... My people have been massacred because of who they believe in....

The time for assessment is over. We need action. We need unity. We need to protect Christians around the world because they're being slaughtered, because of who they are. This is a Christian holocaust....

The reports we're receiving from people on the ground in Iraq and Syria are reporting that every Christian is being targeted and killed because of who they are.

Video, via The Right Scoop:

And what is the Obama administration doing about it?

"The American government and the White House are not doing enough," according to Arabo.

They won't even admit what is happening. If they can't bring themselves to say it, then they certainly aren't going to act to save these people.

Obama's Mistakes

DNC members struggle to name an Obama mistake.

Holy moly.
