Dear Mr. President:
At a time of grave insecurity in the Middle East, we are deeply concerned about the role that terrorist and extremist groups and U.S. adversaries continue to play, particularly in Syria…including assisting our ally, Israel…armed drone infiltrated Israeli airspace…dozens of missiles toward Israel from Syria…complicating Israel’s ability…potent threat to Israel…missiles at Israel…strike anywhere in Israel…between Israel and Syria…Israel also recently discovered…made their way into Israel…intentions of kidnapping Israeli soldiers…strengthen Israel’s security…Israel’s right to self-defense…support Israel’s ability…support Israel’s right…the United States and Israel…ensure that Israel…isolate and weaken Israel…threaten and challenge Israel…Israel’s border…growing threats to U.S. interests, Israel, and regional security…
This is a summary of a one-page letter from the House’s Committee on Foreign Affairs page, with grants provided by AIPAC.
Kidding about AIPAC! Don’t sue!
National charity Youth Music has said the curriculum needs a major shake-up to improve levels of attendance and aid the development of disillusioned youngsters, with the more than 200-year-old symphonies of the Austrian composer unlikely to ever find a place on their Spotify playlists.
More popular modern genres like grime and hip-hop are said to remain completely absent from most UK classrooms, despite artists like Stormzy using his work to address social issues.
Music has almost circled back to its beginnings when beating two sticks together was considered novel. Now we have the same set to obscene lyrics, all modulated through robotic electronics. Because this is what sells, and what sells is what should sell, because what people want is what people want, therefore what they want is good. Diversity is our weakness.
CTV of Vancouver reported that numerous flyers had been posted at a local park which read, “Many Muslims live in this area and dogs are considered filthy in Islam. Please keep your dogs on a leash and away from the Muslims who live in this community.”…
He cites a case in which a Dutch Muslim politician called for dogs to be banned in The Hague, one of the Netherlands biggest cities. Banned?
According to the Gatestone Institute:
In Spain, two Islamic groups based in Lerida — a city in the northeastern region of Catalonia where 29,000 Muslims now make up around 20% of the city’s total population — asked local officials to regulate the presence of dogs in public spaces so they do not “offend Muslims.” … Muslims said the presence of dogs in Lerida violates their religious freedom and their right to live according to Islamic principles.
After their proposals were rejected by local politicians, an epidemic of dog-poisonings followed.
Woof! Notice who is always asked to be accommodating and who is not. Diversity is our weakness.
South Korean authorities seized more than 2,000 human flesh pills smuggled from China.
A total of 2,751 pills filled with human flesh had been smuggled from China between 2015 and August this year, according to the Korea Customs Service, in a report submitted to National Assembly, Yonhap News reported.
Human flesh pills are made of dead human fetuses or infants and wrongly known to boost stamina and cure cancer, serious diabetes and incurable diseases. They are smuggled in suitcases or via international mail to South Korea and sold on the black market.
This report, now a bit old, is from UPI, and thus is not considered “fringe.” One wonders how much of this Planned (Un)Parenthood does.
Black girls are being criminalized at alarming rates. Experts say there are ways to make sure that doesn’t happen.
Black girls don’t misbehave more than white girls, yet in every state across the country they are more likely to be disciplined in school and often receive harsher penalties for the same infractions, experts and researchers have found. They are “dress coded” more frequently than white peers and often viewed as hypersexualized and “adultified” at an early age…
But advocates and researchers say there are ways to close that gap – and to make sure that black girls are not being pushed out of school and into confinement.
Those remedies include launching restorative justice practices, creating diversion courts, remaking the educational and juvenile justice system and — as the Office of Civil Rights recommended in closing its Fort Bend investigation last summer — revising the disciplinary codes to define infractions and procedures more clearly and developing a training program for staffers who enforce discipline…
Under the LEAD program, a joint initiative by the city of Houston and Harris County, campus police and administrators are encouraged to refer students for support services instead of arresting them for non-violent offenses or enforcing punitive discipline.
The statement that “Black girls don’t misbehave more than white girls” is not due to an objective measure, but the result of theory which insists on Equality. The higher “arrest” and punishment rates of black girls is an objective measurement.
Failing to punish black girls will, of course, work in the sense of making equal the statistics of punishment, pace “In the Oakland Unified School District in California, the use of restorative justice was credited with helping reduce suspensions from 34% to 14% over two years, bringing down the rate of chronic absenteeism and eliminate disproportionate suspensions of black students in the schools where it was used.”
This must be true: if you do not suspend, suspension rates must necessarily decrease. The “problem” is therefore solved.
