Some Parents Call School Assignment on Slavery `Inappropriate` and Demeaning`


Shayn Roby:

Shayn Roby’s Take: Any time that the subject of slavery is approached among the African American population, there is potential for misunderstanding, confusion, and anger. The whole point of the assignment was in order for each student to feel the magnitude of the hard life that was imposed upon those who were held in the bondage of slavery.  The assignment was neither irrelevant nor inappropriate, but perhaps it would be wise to allow an alternative assignment to be substituted for those who feel offended..

Parents of some students in an eighth-grade English class at Hawthorne Middle School were outraged Thursday over a homework assignment requiring students to keep a first-hand diary of life as a slave for five days, describing the so-called slave journal “inappropriate and demeaning.”

Hawthorne School Superintendent Helen E. Morgan responded in a statement: “Asking students to write a journal as if they were experiencing a historical event is an appropriate teaching strategy. It requires the writer to think critically about the facts and emotions that may have impacted someone in that situation.”

The Government Raid on Your Bank Account


Shayn Roby:

Shayn Roby’s Take: It may be wise to have a little hard currency in a secret location in order to shelter the blow of the next major bank failure, as it appears that the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation may (in the near future) no longer sufficiently protect the funds of account holders in financial institutions across the United States.

Confiscating the customer deposits in Cyprus banks, it seems, was not a one-off, desperate idea of a few Eurozone “troika” officials scrambling to salvage their balance sheets. A joint paper by the US Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation and the Bank of England dated December 10, 2012, shows that these plans have been long in the making; that they originated with the G20 Financial Stability Board in Basel, Switzerland (discussed earlier here); and that the result will be to deliver clear title to the banks of depositor funds.  

New Zealand has a similar directive, discussed in my last article here, indicating that this isn’t just an emergency measure for troubled Eurozone countries. New Zealand’s Voxy reported on March 19th:

The National Government [is] pushing a Cyprus-style solution to bank failure in New Zealand which will see small depositors lose some of their savings to fund big…

Muslim groups seek to co-opt Ferguson protests, says watchdog group


Shayn Roby:

Shayn Roby’s Take: It is such a surprise to believe that Muslims would help to incite violence ( note the sarcastic tone in which the previous sentence was typed).

By Steven Edwards:

Muslim groups have stepped up efforts to co-opt protests over the fatal shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., with a drive to equate the teen’s death to the death of a radical Islamist shot during an FBI raid in 2009, a Washington-based security watchdog group is warning.

Using social media, conference calling and traditional outreach methods, leaders of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) are portraying Brown and Detroit mosque leader Imam Luqman Ameen Abdullah as African-American victims of police targeting, according to the Washington-based Center for Security Policy (CSP). In a conference call organized by CAIR-linked “Muslims for Ferguson, a CAIR official called Abdullah a “Shaheed,” or martyr, and said both he and Brown were victims of a national security apparatus that had “completely gone wild” and engaged in “demonizing and criminalizing Muslims.”

“The reality is that this country, in law enforcement, be it local…

Israel: Worry Grips Jerusalem Residents Awaiting Next Attack, Security Measures Not Seen In Years Now In Place


Shayn Roby:

Evil abounds around us as we hear of wars and rumors of wars, and the forces of Lucifer move to force the battle of Armageddon to draw nigh. However, the victor of this conflict has been decided, as the Great I Am, the Original Light, will establish His eternal reign in which every knee shall bow to Him.

Zechariah 12:2-3, “Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah [and] against Jerusalem. And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.”

Declaring the end from the beginning, the Bible is proving itself to be more than just human in origin every day. According to the article below it may be largely “business as usual” in west Jerusalem right now, but in the Old City of east Jerusalem — which was built around 1000 BC and was the entire city of Jerusalem up until 1860 where the Western Wall, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre and al Aqsa Mosque all reside — we’re seeing an entirely different situation develop. Jews, Christians and Muslims all reside within…

‘Food writer’ attacks Dana Loesch, ends up with egg on his face


Shayn Roby:

Shayn Roby’s Take: Almost anytime a riot takes place, it involves a crowd of liberals. Liberals despise Mrs. Loesch because she shreds their pathetic arguments with ease. Who could blame her for canceling an event that did not provide security?   Almost any psycho that commits violence comes from the left side of the aisle. She is wise and justified in protecting herself.

Originally posted on Twitchy:

Conservative authors and speakers always need to have security at public appearances because the left is so intolerant of opinions they disagree with. Dana Loesch was scheduled to do a book signing at the Texas Christian University bookstore today but she cancelled after being informed at the last minute that security was not being provided.

Ebola czar, absent from Obama’s big meeting on Ebola, hasn’t started gig yet


Shayn Roby:

Shayn Roby’s Take: Ron Klain’s absence should not have been a surprise. White House spokesman Josh Earnest already admitted that Klain was no expert regarding the Ebola virus. That translates into: Klain is just another Obama Zombie government bureaucrat who is as useless as the teats on a boar hog, as the NIH Director Francis Collins places more priority on finding out why lesbians are fat than she does on producing a vaccine for the Ebola Virus.

Originally posted on Twitchy:

What’s that again? The nation’s newly appointed Ebola czar didn’t make it to this afternoon’s big White House meeting on Ebola? As crazy as that seems, it wasn’t unexpected to those who were paying close attention.

So, when is he starting? This is kind of important.

How soon is very soon?

Other handy facts to know about Ronald Klain; for one, you don’t have to call him Ebola czar, but you can if you like.
