Even after my opponent made his pro-Amnesty, “legalize everyone now” intentions clear; voted YES on the Senate negotiated CR spending and debt ceiling deal (funding ObamaCare), NO on Tom McClintock’s $1.5 billion Dept. of Energy cut; refused pledge not to raise taxes… shall I go on, or do you get the picture? Keep in mind this is less than a […]

Written by  Kurt Williamsen Years ago as part of my college coursework to become a high-school English teacher, I was required to be a student-teacher for a semester. The rules allowed me to do my student-teaching at any high school that would accept me, and I chose Washington High School in the inner city of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. I mainly chose […]

“Get Off The Sinking Ship”

on December 8, 2013, 11:18 AM / in National News, News, Opinion

This column is archived here. This column dated November 21, 2013, created a firestorm of outrage and venom from hundreds of pastors and Christians. It was a rude awakening for me, for sure. I have long maintained that the vast majority of today’s pastors and church members are smugly content in abject apathy and indifference. However, after the vehement reaction […]

The scores are in from the 2012 Program for International Student Assessment, which, every three years, tests 15-year-olds from the world’s most advanced countries. For the United States, the report card is dismal. The U.S. ranking has fallen to 17th in reading, 21st in science, and 26th in math. Florida, one of America’s diverse mega-states, competed separately in the PISA […]

3-2 vote. Mayor Van Brocklin, Stout, and Brock voted in favor. Banyas and Tomitas asked tough questions and opposed. Remember this at election time. Stout, especially, will be running in the Republican primary in 2014, hoping to win a seat in the General Assembly. Show dogs and hunting dogs are NOT exempt.

“In Slate, Emma Roller wearily recounted other episodes of black-on-white violence in order to announce: ‘The ‘Knockout Game’ is a myth.’ … So you see, stupid right-wingers, young black males have always been violent, so what’s the big deal about the Knockout Game? Your honor, my client’s not a killer; he’s a serial killer. … According to the FBI, between […]

“Soviet strongman Joseph Stalin toyed with the idea of boxing in Nazi Germany by joining with democratic France and Britain. When that gambit did not work out, Stalin suddenly flipped and came to terms with Hitler himself through the Molotov-Ribbentrop non-aggression pact in August 1939. Stalin also later cut a similar deal with his former Japanese enemies in April 1941. […]

Village Academic Curriculum: Is Our Children Learning?

on December 8, 2013, 11:01 AM / in National News, News

It may seem like the Department of Education has been around forever — at least, it seems like that’s how long we’ve been debating its usefulness. But that’s not the case. In 1980, Jimmy Carter decided that American kids, who were arguably pretty smart already, could be even smarter if the federal government had a cabinet-level education office. Of course, […]

Syria’s Chemical Weapons to Be Destroyed

Syria’s Chemical Weapons to Be Destroyed

on December 8, 2013, 10:59 AM / in National News, News

Back in September, the Obama administration was still floundering in its dealings with Syria and that nation’s chemical weapons. Obama had unwisely set a “red line” over chemical weapons use, and then didn’t back up his words — well, unless you count Secretary of State John Kerry’s promise of an “unbelievably small” military strike. Vladimir Putin seized the opportunity to […]

When things aren’t going your way, change the subject. That’s what Barack Obama did this week in hopes of grabbing onto something — anything — to distract the American people from the man-caused disaster known as ObamaCare. But is his chosen shiny object, the economy, really his strong suit? In remarks Wednesday, Obama declared that income inequality is the “defining […]

Nelson Mandela, RIP

on December 8, 2013, 10:53 AM / in National News, News

Nelson Mandela, the former South African president who helped end apartheid, died Thursday. He was 95. Mandela earned respect and praise because he went beyond the African National Congress days of violence to truly advocate for peace, much as MLK did in the 1960s. The difference is that MLK had a national narrative to appeal to, namely “that all men […]

As long time readers know – I stopped celebrating the pagan based holiday many years ago – when I learned what it is rather than the lie told about it being about Jesus’ birth.  This is another of Satan’s lies and the gullible fell for it – as I did until someone taught me the root of this *holiday*.   I […]

Editor’s notes: We recently published two different articles discussing the passing of Nelson Mandela which raised a stir of sorts. The first was Communist Nelson Mandela dies at age 95 and the second ‘He is now at peace’: Nelson Mandela dead at 95 . This morning we posted a third. While the second shows the benign rule of Mandela, the first and […]
