L.A. Teachers Union Demands Defunding Police Before Reopening Schools

Does the L.A. Teachers Union care first and foremost about educating children?

Not even close.

The union intends to hold the students and their parents hostage until the union's Leftist demands are met.

From Just the News:

A major teachers union is claiming that the re-opening of schools in its district cannot occur without several substantial policy provisions in place, including a "moratorium" on charter schools and the defunding of local police.

United Teachers Los Angeles, a 35,000-strong union in the Los Angeles Unified School District, made those demands in a policy paper it released this week. The organization called on local authorities to "keep school campuses closed when the semester begins on Aug. 18."
UTLA is demanding that police be defunded and charter schools be closed.

"The union also demands the implementation of a federal Medicare-for-All program, several new state-level taxes on wealthy people, and a 'federal bailout' of the school district."

This is insane.

The Democrats/Leftists have gone completely crazy.

According to the science, children can safely go to school. Keeping schools closed is not in the best interests of children or their families.

Teachers unions across the country are exposing themselves as radical political operations rather than groups of professionals nobly working and caring for the nation's children.

FL Hospital COVID Positivity Rate 10x Lower Than Reported



From Just the News:
A Florida hospital handling COVID-19 tests confirmed to media this week that its near-100% positivity rate was overstated by a factor of 10, raising already-heightened concerns that numerous labs are over reporting the number of confirmed infections.

...In recent days, numerous facilities have begun reporting 100% positivity rates, figures significantly higher than the statewide average of around 15%. Many of those labs claim to have tested only one patient, though others with 100% rates report testing dozens and sometimes hundreds of patients.

...Orlando news station Fox 35 said on Monday that it undertook an investigation of those "astronomical figures," after which several medical facilities confirmed that their actual positive rates were much lower than those reported to the state government.

The news station reported that area hospital Orlando Health "confirmed errors in the report," with hospital officials stating their their "positivity rate is only 9.4 percent, not 98 percent."

Another Orlando-area lab, Veteran’s Medical Center, listed "a positivity rate of 76 percent," but a company official said that "the positivity rate for the center is actually 6 percent."
There's a huge difference between 76 percent and 6 percent, 98 percent and 9.4 percent.

These "errors" are unacceptable.

One of the most consequential casualties of this pandemic is the inability to trust any information as valid.

Bari Weiss Quits NYT - 'New McCarthyism'



Read the resignation letter.

The paper of record is, more and more, the record of those living in a distant galaxy, one whose concerns are profoundly removed from the lives of most people. This is a galaxy in which, to choose just a few recent examples, the Soviet space program is lauded for its “diversity”; the doxxing of teenagers in the name of justice is condoned; and the worst caste systems in human history includes the United States alongside Nazi Germany.

...Rule One: Speak your mind at your own peril. Rule Two: Never risk commissioning a story that goes against the narrative. Rule Three: Never believe an editor or publisher who urges you to go against the grain. Eventually, the publisher will cave to the mob, the editor will get fired or reassigned, and you’ll be hung out to dry.

...As places like The Times and other once-great journalistic institutions betray their standards and lose sight of their principles, Americans still hunger for news that is accurate, opinions that are vital, and debate that is sincere. I hear from these people every day. “An independent press is not a liberal ideal or a progressive ideal or a democratic ideal. It’s an American ideal,” you said a few years ago. I couldn’t agree more. America is a great country that deserves a great newspaper.

The New York Times is not America's "paper of record."

It deals in propaganda, censoring journalists and censoring ideas.

President Trump is not silencing Americans.

'Vandal' Damages BLM 'Mural'



This has bugged me since this "Black Lives Matter" and "Defund the Police" street-painting fad began. The media refer to these protest signs as murals.

When I heard there was Black Lives Matter mural being painted in front of Trump Tower, I thought it would be an actual mural, on a wall. Words painted on a street usually aren't considered a mural. It seems like another attempt by the Democrats/Leftists to play with language. It seems like an effort to elevate the significance of a protest sign stenciled on a public street.

I think it's nus that the person who dumped red paint on the protest sign called a mural is being labeled as a vandal.

For weeks, we saw images of "peaceful protesters" defacing buildings and churches with vile graffiti, destroying and defacing monuments. The Democrat/Leftist/Marxist politicians and their Democrat/Leftist/Marxist media didn't call the thugs who damaged public and private property "vandals." They were characterized as protesters in a historic movement. They were called heroes struggling for change as they looted and burned our cities.

Yet, one guy throws some red paint on a protest sign (known as a mural), and he's called a vandal. He's committing a crime.

Why not call him a "peaceful protester," too? Why not call his application of paint part of a historic movement at this historic time in our historic history? Why not just call it his contribution to the mural?

We must be open to artistic expression, especially at this time in our history.

Davell Gardner, Jr. and Bill de Blasio



This sweet little boy's life was taken away. He was murdered while sitting in his stroller at a cookout. His life matters, too.

Bill de Blasio needs to explain what "Black Lives Matter" means.

The evil people who carried out this deadly violence and those responsible for all the other shootings and deaths in New York City are not being addressed by the mayor. Instead, he poses and turns his energies to painting the street in front of Trump Tower and defunding the police budget by $1 billion.

Savannah Chavez: Blue Lives Matter



From The Blaze:
Officers Edelmiro Garza, Jr., 45, and Ismael Chavez, 39, of the McAllen Police Department in Texas were shot and killed on Saturday. The officers were reportedly ambushed while responding to a domestic disturbance call at a residence.

Chavez was a former chemistry teacher and football coach, and the father to Savannah Chavez. The daughter of the slain officer posted several memories and heartfelt tributes to her loving father on Twitter.

...One post honoring her late father received much attention.

words cannot describe the pain I'm in, but I'm glad my dad is at peace. you were an amazing man and anyone who ever came across you knew that. I'm going to miss you so much. you died doing what you loved most, you died a hero. i love you daddy, see you soon. #BlueLivesMatter

Chavez has since deleted the tweet because it received insensitive messages from Twitter users because she used the hashtag #BlueLivesMatter.

One Twitter user responded to the tweet by saying: "I am so sorry for your loss but you didn't have to use a racist hashtag," according to Heavy.com.

"Blue lives matter was literally created in response to and to undermine black lives matter," another person wrote. "There's no other connotation unfortunately."

"Well atleast your pops is a good cop now, 6 feet in the dirt where he cant hurt nobody," a user tweeted.

"Rip to your daddy!!! But one cop down many more to go," another person responded.

Dozens of Twitter users responded to the tribute with "ACAB," which means "All Cops Are Bastards."
The people harassing Savannah Chavez are truly disgusting. They responded to her tweet. These were hate-filled messages to this suffering girl. She just lost her father!

Officer Chavez and Officer Garza were murdered while doing their jobs, protecting the community.

Savannah is grieving and these heartless people attack her, wanting her to hurt more than she already does. They are sick. I hope each person who wrote an ugly tweet is riddled with guilt for the pain they've inflicted on this innocent girl.

The lives of our police officers do matter. That's a fact. Yes, Blue Lives Matter.

As a Christian, as a Catholic, I believe ALL LIVES MATTER.

That is not a racist statement. It doesn't undercut anyone or any political movement, such as Black Lives Matter. It's what I believe. It's informed by my faith.

ALL LIVES MATTER, people of every race, religion, and age, from conception to death.

Of course, ALL LIVES MATTER.

New Leaders, New Voices



Elizabeth Warren is not doing Joe Biden any favors by declaring the need for new leaders and new voices.

Donald Trump is the ultimate new voice in Washington. Although he's served as president since 2017, he is still an outsider. The Establishment and Deep State consider this new leader to be a serious threat. As an outsider, they can't control him, making him especially dangerous. Trump is tirelessly fighting for Americans and the betterment of our country rather looking to maintain the Swamp. His successes as president have been astounding given the unbelievable onslaught he's faced before and after his election.

Joe Biden is the ultimate swamp creature. After decades in Washington, he's certainly not a new leader. He's not a leader at all. Biden has no vision. He attempts to read and recite the agenda of radical Leftists and Socialists like Bernie Sanders. We've all seen what a failure he is at trying to sound like he's capable of being president. Biden does not have a voice. He just echoes others, badly.

The radical agenda of the Democrats/Leftists/Marxists/Communists must be rejected.

Robert Mueller's WAPO Op-Ed



Oh, good grief.

We've known for a year that Robert Mueller has serious cognitive issues or he lied under oath. He's about as sharp as Joe Biden. The man was clueless when he testified last year. He was a disaster!

His op-ed in the Washington Post is worthless.

Posted July, 25, 2019:


I was looking forward to Robert Mueller's testimony.

I expected Republicans to pose questions that would make Mueller uncomfortable.

I didn't expect Mueller to be incapable of answering the most basic questions about the "MUELLER Report."

He wasn't even able to correctly answer which president appointed him United States Attorney for the United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts.

Former Special Counsel Robert Mueller confused which president appointed him the United States Attorney for the District of Massachusetts back in the 1980s during his congressional appearance Wednesday.

Answering a question during a lengthy hearing before the House Judiciary Committee, Mueller said he thought President George H. W. Bush appointed him to the post in Massachusetts, but was quickly corrected by Rep. Greg Stanton, D-Ariz., who noted that Mueller was appointed by President Ronald Reagan in 1986.
Truly embarrassing.

No wonder Mueller didn't want to testify. He knew he wasn't up to it.

It's an understatement to say Mueller was a mess.


Mitt Romney Blasts Trump For Stone Commutation



Mitt Romney is a very troubled man.

I doubt a popular tweet among Democrats/Leftists/Marxists is enough to make up for his 2012 presidential campaign debacle. I'm sure he still realizes he's a loser.






Mitt Romney will never be president of the United States.

Obama Administration Shut Down H1N1 Testing



From The Blaze:
In October 2009, CBS News released the findings from a three-month-long investigation into how the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention were reporting H1N1 cases during the swine flu pandemic.

"In late July, the CDC abruptly advised states to stop testing for H1N1 flu, and stopped counting individual cases," CBS News reporter Sharyl Attkisson wrote. "The rationale given for the CDC guidance to forego testing and tracking individual cases was: why waste resources testing for H1N1 flu when the government has already confirmed there's an epidemic?"

"Some public health officials privately disagreed with the decision to stop testing and counting, telling CBS News that continued tracking of this new and possibly changing virus was important because H1N1 has a different epidemiology, affects younger people more than seasonal flu and has been shown to have a higher case fatality rate than other flu virus strains," the report said.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website confirms the CBS News report.

"Individual case counts were kept early during the 2009 H1N1 outbreak when the 2009 H1N1 virus first emerged," the CDC website reads. "As the outbreak expanded and became more widespread, individual case counts become increasingly impractical and not representative of the true extent of the outbreak."
Well done, Obama/Biden administration!

Scottsdale Bath & Body Works Manager Harasses Shopper With MAGA Face Mask





This is not good at all.

Clearly, Bath & Body Works is not a welcoming place for shoppers. The manager of a store should not be harassing people. In response to seeing a shopper wearing a MAGA face mask, the MANAGER admits she said, "F--- Donald Trump."

Definitely not employee of the month.

Warning Labels For Democrats, Trump-Haters

Roger Stone's Sentence Commuted

President Trump commuted Roger Stone's sentence.

Guess what. The Democrat/Leftist/Biden media are going crazy, along with the other Trump-haters.

No surprise there.

They're going out of their minds. Of course, when fellow Democrats give pardons or commutations, no problem.




Remember, Obama commuted the sentence of a domestic terrorist.

That abomination was celebrated.




I can't get upset about the Roger Stone commutation. Stone is not a domestic terrorist, but he was treated like one.

CNN exclusively captured the pre-dawn raid. Remember?




Stone was a victim of the coup madness and deep state corruption. The commutation is more than justified.



So, Trump-haters, be outraged. Have another fit. Keep yelling.

Spend the weekend pretending the commutation of Roger Stone's sentence is the most corrupt abuse of power in the history of the U.S. presidency.

Fall to the floor. Hold your breath. Kick and stomp.

I don't care.
