Oregon American Federation of Teachers Loses Third of Membership After Janus

The Oregon chapter of the American Federation of Teachers (AFT) has experienced monumental membership and financial losses in just the first year after the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling in Janus v. AFSCME, which affirmed the right of public employees to stop paying union dues.

The release this month of AFT’s most recent LM-2 report continues an alarming trend for the leaders of Oregon’s public employee unions. The Department of Labor filling shows that just in the past year, AFT has lost 4,133 members and agency fee-payers.

That translates to a decline of 35 percent of its total membership, taking with them $1 million in revenue from the previous year.

This revelation comes on the heels of the release of AFT National’s annual report showing a 4 percent decline in membership across the country.

The stark difference between the national decline compared to the decline in Oregon’s chapter is almost entirely attributable to the work of the Freedom Foundation.

AFT members in Oregon have been inundated with door-to-door visits, direct mail, email, texts, billboards and even radio and tv ads — all driving home the message of their newly affirmed rights to leave their union.

Oregon’s AFT joins the ranks with the Oregon School Employees Association (OSEA), who experienced a 36 percent decline in membership over the past year.

When public employees are informed of their rights to leave their union, separate themselves from extremist partisan politics, and keep hundreds of dollars a year in their pocket, they can’t opt out fast enough.

Ideological Pandemonium Breaks Out as Ben ‘Nazi’ Shapiro Prepares to Speak at Stanford, and I Have Questions

Westlake Legal Group ben-shapiro-turning-point-AP-620x317 Ideological Pandemonium Breaks Out as Ben ‘Nazi’ Shapiro Prepares to Speak at Stanford, and I Have Questions Uncategorized religion Politics LGBT Guns gun control Front Page Stories Featured Story eugene gu eli valley Education democrats Culture & Faith Culture Conservatives Cartoons Ben Shapiro anti-semitism Allow Media Exception

Controversial conservative commentator Ben Shapiro, editor-in-chief of the Daily Wire and former editor-at-large of Breitbart News, addresses the student group Young Americans for Freedom at the University of Utah’s Social and Behavioral Sciences Lecture Hall, Wednesday, Sept. 27, 2017. Shapiro uses his web-based talk show and online columns to support President Donald Trump’s policies and criticize the “self-righteous media.” (Leah Hogsten/The Salt Lake Tribune via AP, Pool)

 

 

If you’ve watched much of Ben Shapiro’s podcasts, you’re sure to have walked away with some characterizations — “fast talker” being among the possibilities.

One not likely to make your Top 10: Nazi.

Yet, in a world with more information at our fingertips than ever before, there are young people protesting his appearances with signs and language that make obvious they’ve not thought to find out who or what he actually is — they just heard some Satan guy was comin’, and they were down for some outrage.

If I may…

Unsolicited advice to protestors, in general: Only protest things you know about.

Better.

They’ve got plenty of time to put that into practice ahead of Ben’s speech at Stanford University — he’ll be talking fast in a big room on November 7th.

Some people are already decrying the event, including cartoonist Eli Valley, who believes Jewish Ben is Jewish hater (?) Ben (?).

Let’s look, for a moment, at some defining characteristics of Nazis:

  • Anti-Jew
  • Opposed to an armed citizenry
  • Socialist
  • Fond of banning things which don’t adhere to a particular viewpoint

Moving on, here’s Eli’s new ‘toon:

So college Republicans (AKA Hitler Youth) = hate group.

And hate group = opposing Jewish people.

But Eli Valley ≠ opposing Jewish person Ben being able to show up and speak somewhere.

It’s hard to imagine the Hitler Youth inviting a man with a yarmulke to school them on how to be smart.

It seems to me we’re at a place in society where a whole lot of things are said just because they seem like they’d sound good to say.

Don’t like someone? Call ’em a Nazi — those guys are supposed to be jerks. Think someone’s got wrong ideas? Label ’em a fascist ’cause you heard that’s bad. Then black their eye and ignite their car.

Hate who won the election? Say they’re ending the system of democracy forever and ever amen (here, here, and lots of other places, too). Impeach!

But in Eli’s defense, he did take time to explain why the YAF should be wearing Michael Jordan mustaches:

You’re right, Arsenio.

Sorry — here we go:

And they’re not just Nazis; they’re also terrorists:

“They should’ve been thrown off campus” — I’m not in any way suggesting Eli’s of the Third Reich persuasion, but isn’t that kind of a Nazi thing to say?



Another guy speaking out against Ben being allowed to talk on campus is Dr. Eugene Gu, who believes the prodigious violinist (here playing “Schindler’s List”) should be straitjacketed:

If you aren’t familiar with the reference, here’s Beto’s expressed plan to pull tax exemption from any institution which doesn’t endorse gay marriage, followed by Ben’s response:

Eugene’s absolutely anti-Ben-speaking because Shapiro has “zero…critical thinking skills”:

This was the doctor in July:

This is where I end the article abruptly like a bad SNL sketch, because I believe there’s nothing left to say. And I think it’s your turn — I look forward to hearing your thoughts on all this. Was Ben’s gun message wrong? Can you make sense of Eli’s Nazi deduction? Are you familiar with the propagandistic weekly German tabloid-format newspaper, Der Stürmer, or to what incident the cartoonish refers? Are you a man who’s had an abortion? Was Michael Jordan insane? Let us all know, in the Comments section.

Hillary Clinton Violated Classified Information Handling Rules and Her Lifetime Non-Disclosure Agreement

This is a short tutorial on classified information that explains what classified information is, how it is to be protected, the obligations of everyone granted access to it, and the rules governing its handling under all circumstances. After you read it, as well as this article I wrote, you will understand what Hillary Clinton did – knowingly – and her multiple felonies! There remain many Americans who don’t understand the rules, including the lifelong obligation that ANYONE granted access has to protect the information, and that the statutes are completely silent on “intent” regarding its compromise. In short, even if an inadvertent error is made resulting in the compromise (“spillage”) of classified information, that person is flat-out guilty of a felony – no questions asked. Anyone who states that Hillary showed no “intent” in compromising classified information via her server and therefore deserved to be exonerated by James Comey is lying.

What infuriates me are all the Hillary Clinton sycophants on CNN and MSNBC who themselves once had access to classified information, and who blithely continue to excuse the multiple felonies that she and her aides committed surrounding her unauthorized email server when they know the rules and obligations. She and her aides (and anyone else who had knowledge of what classified information passed through that server) can be prosecuted at any time, provided there is the political will to do so. Commentators and others who excuse her crimes are undermining that political will which, of course, is their goal.

There has been virtually ZERO honest investigative reporting on this subject by the legacy media since Hillary’s unauthorized server was first discovered despite the abundance of current and former military and intelligence community personnel available to explain the topic to the American people. On the contrary, those people have been covering for everyone who mishandled classified information that passed through that server. It is up to the rest of us to continue to demand accountability and harsh punishment if the justice that has been delayed is to be finally served. Thus, a little tutorial on classified info is in order to level-set those who have never held a security clearance.

Information is classified based on level of damage to national security if disclosed (Top Secret – exceptionally grave damage; Secret – serious damage; Confidential – damage). Higher levels of TS classification exist: Sensitive Compartmented Information (SCI) and Special Access Program (SAP). SCI is derived from intel sources and methods and must be handled very carefully with higher security protection requirements and very limited personnel access. SAP requires even stronger and more extraordinary protection measures (physical, information, personnel). The bottom line is that TS/SCI and TS/SAP information is the most carefully guarded national security and intelligence information produced and maintained in the US.

To gain access to any classified info, three things must happen:

  • A favorable determination of eligibility (a comprehensive background investigation completed)
  • A “need-to-know” (a valid requirement for access to the information)
  • A signed Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA)

The NDA is a lifetime contract between a person and the government to protect classified info. It clearly delineates that violation of the Espionage Act of 1917 can result in fine, incarceration or even death. This includes: giving classified info to unauthorized individuals, causing classified info to be lost or stolen, or failing to report to security when you know or suspect that classified info has been provided to someone who is not authorized (PARTICULARLY NOTE this last part!). Here are the penalties for violation of Title 18 USC – Espionage: $10,000 fine for EACH offense, up to life imprisonment without parole, or the death penalty in certain circumstances (PARTICULARLY NOTE the “each offense” part!). The NDA also specifically identifies the regulations which govern classified information, including unauthorized disclosure: Section 793, 794, 790, and 952 of Title 18 USC, Section 783(b) of Title 60 USC, and EO 12356. These statutes have their own penalties for violations thereunder.

Here are some other miscellaneous tidbits to better understand classified information handling requirements. First of all, all classified information must be properly marked at the level at which it is classified. This is done down to the paragraph level in documents. Classification markings also apply to the electronic environment, too (e.g., web pages, Wiki’s, blogs, chat rooms, bulletin boards, and emails). In short, EVERYTHING classified must be properly marked.

There are two main systems for sending classified information electronically: Joint Worldwide Intelligence Communications System (JWICS) for TS and above information, and Secure Internet Protocol Router Network (SIPRNET) for SECRET and CONFIDENTIAL information. These are basically secure private networks that enable people to use Microsoft Office and customized apps to exchange classified information. Email senders are responsible for maintaining the highest level of classification contained through a classified email chain, including attachments (and cannot arbitrarily downgrade or declassify something). Classification of a document is permanent until properly declassified.

SCI and SAP information are maintained and stored in special classified facilities: SCI Facilities (SCIF) and SAP Facilities (SAPF). Authorized access requirements to these facilities are extremely stringent and special handling rules apply to the info created/stored/maintained. SCI/SAP material cannot be removed from a SCIF/SAPF without prior approval of security personnel.

Removable media (DVDs, external hard drives, USB drives, etc.) are carefully controlled. All SCIFs/SAPFs have a designated media custodian responsible for control and accountability of all media (everything must be under direct control). Two-person integrity is required for all removable media once it enters a SCIF/SAPF. This means that one person is not authorized to download and remove classified files on, for example, a thumb drive.

SCI/SAP file transfers are only allowed to be conducted by a designated “transfer agent” (with a courier card or letter of designation). In short, not just any random person with a clearance is authorized to transfer files. All IT systems have the ability to write to removable media function disabled as a default setting; a privileged person (like a sysadmin) has to manually enable the function. These manual actions are automatically audited (meaning, any attempt to use removable media is KNOWN). The authorized transfer agents cannot have admin privileges on the systems which they will be writing to removable media. It takes a sysadmin/security person to enable the file transfer function and the authorized transfer agent to download a classified file to removable media. One person can’t do it, and everyone who operates these systems is trained on downloading procedures.

An Original Classification Authority is a government person who has authorization to classify newly developed information up to Top Secret level. There are very few of these in the federal government. Hillary Clinton was an OCA in the State Department. Think about that! She KNEW what she was doing. The notion that she didn’t know what was classified was a bald-faced lie.

Everyone who accesses TS/SCI, TS/SAP, and other classified info receives training in all of the above procedures and information BEFORE personally signing the NDA acknowledging the penalties for violation of the laws governing classified information. And an OCA receives specialized training in how to classify information. That infamous statement that she didn’t know what a “C” meant was yet another one of her many lies as she tried to squirm off the hook.

To summarize: there are strict rules for handling classified info, in particular for copying & transferring files. Two people must be involved in copying/transferring TS/SCI and/or SAP info. Everyone receives training and must sign an NDA. This would include Hillary Clinton and her immediate staff who accessed TS/SCI and/or SAP info. The rules and penalties are clear to all!

She clearly violated Title 18 USC – Espionage, the penalty for which includes a $10,000 fine for EACH offense and up to life imprisonment without parole (again, PARTICULARLY NOTE the “for each offense” part!). In my estimation, this clearly qualified her as a “domestic enemy”! And she and her staffers who were involved with that email server violated Sections 793, 794, 790, and 952 of Title 18 USC, Section 783(b) of Title 60 USC, and EO 12356. That she and they remain free and have not been indicted yet is a travesty of justice. Those who helped let her and them off the hook are guilty of misprision and obstruction of justice. These crimes CANNOT and WILL NOT be forgotten. It is long past time that this domestic enemy – as well as all her many enablers over the years – saw the inside of a jail cell!

The end.

Florida’s Legislature Eyes Bible Classes and Prayer in Every Public High School, and the Bill’s Sponsor is Even More Shocking

Westlake Legal Group sky-2667455_1280-620x401 Florida’s Legislature Eyes Bible Classes and Prayer in Every Public High School, and the Bill’s Sponsor is Even More Shocking Uncategorized Front Page Stories Featured Story

 

 

And now for something completely different…

In Florida, legislators have introduced a bill requiring all public high schools to offer elective Bible classes covering the Old and New Testaments.

Furthermore, prayer would once again be permitted.

The bill’s sponsor, Rep. Kim Daniels, is the author of several faith-based books, including Prayers That Can Bring Change and Break the Power of Familiar Spirits.

House Bill 341 “requires each school district to offer specified courses relating to religion, Hebrew Scriptures, and Bible to certain students as elective courses.”

Additionally, it would allow a “brief meditation period” at every school in the state.

While the notion of kids praying and learning about the Apostle Paul in school may be surprising, perhaps even more double-take-inducing is the fact that Kim is a Democrat.

Eaze into it…there ya go.

And this isn’t her first effort at bringing some church to school: In March, she submitted a similar proposal requiring public high schools to offer Bible classes as electives. The stated purpose was to teach the Good Book, not as religion, but for its historical and cultural significance and role in the founding of American government.

That one was approved in an 11-3 vote. According to Orlando’s Fox 35 — some critics warned of lawsuits, whereas others said the courses should include Buddhism, Islam, Hinduism.

Kim is also the founder Spoken Word Ministries, Kimberly Daniels Ministries International, and Word Bible College.

Last year, she successfully got the state motto — “In God We Trust” — displayed in every Florida public school.

If passed, the law will go into effect in 2020.

Meghan McCain Slams Dem Debate Performance and Comes Up With the Perfect Job for Beto

On Wednesday’s episode of The View, Meghan McCain gave quite the negative review of 2020 Democratic candidates’ performance during Tuesday’s debate.

And one of those was good ol’ Elizabeth Warren, who — to the blonde fireball — didn’t do a good ‘ol job:

“I have many things to say. I was live-tweeting it because there’s only so much time in these segments. I will say — I thought Warren did a terrible job, and she was on her heels all night. And it showed just how horrible she actually is.”

Meghan also managed to call co-host Sunny Hostin a far-leftist (a characterization which which she disagreed), in response to her comment, “Did we watch the same debate?”

“I’m watching it as a Republican, and you’re saying that as a far left progressive. Mayor Pete came out swinging really hard, and I thought it was quite impressive.”

Is Meghan still a Republican? Her family’d decided back in April to endorse Biden (here).


GOP’er Abby Huntsman was impressed by Pete, too:

“I give mayor Pete, and Amy Klobuchar kudos. Mayor Pete, who I have liked from the beginning, but last night was his best performance yet. Biden also, but he delivers what Biden is saying I think so much better.”

Meghan’s comments on everyone’s favorite hunting rifle thief — Beto O’Rourke — were completely dismissive, but also, she had a really good idea.

As I covered Tuesday, Beto recently announced he’ll be exiting the political realm for good if he doesn’t snag the nomination (here).

That might not be a bad idea, since he’s seemed bent on saying things that make him wholly unelectable.

And when your campaign looks like this…

And holy heck, this:

…you might wanna broaden your options.

Therefore…Meghan with the win:

“I don’t know what Beto was doing other than running for MSNBC host. Coming up, I’m sure he’ll get a good hour.”

Perfecto!

Gabbard Was Right: It Was ALWAYS About Regime Change in Syria

Westlake Legal Group TulsiGabbardAPimage-620x317 Gabbard Was Right: It Was ALWAYS About Regime Change in Syria Uncategorized Trump syria Syria republicans Politics Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story elections donald trump democrats Allow Media Exception

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii, speaks during the second of two Democratic presidential primary debates hosted by CNN Wednesday, July 31, 2019, in the Fox Theatre in Detroit. (AP Photo/Paul Sancya)

 

Last night during the Democrat debate, and even today via various commentary, the only ones who appear to really know what is going on in Syria, are President Donald Trump and Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard. When asked her opinion regarding the recent events in Syria, Gabbard said,

Well, first of all, we’ve got to understand the reality of the situation there, which is that the slaughter of the Kurds being done by Turkey is yet another negative consequence of the regime change war that we’ve been waging in Syria.

Donald Trump has the blood of the Kurds on his hands, but so do many of the politicians in our country from both parties who have supported this ongoing regime change war in Syria that started in 2011, along with many in the mainstream media, who have been championing and cheerleading this regime change war.

Mayor Buttigieg responded,

Well, respectfully, Congresswoman, I think that is dead wrong. The slaughter going on in Syria is not a consequence of American presence. It’s a consequence of a withdrawal and a betrayal by this president of American allies and American values.

Gabbard put him away with the following,

Yeah, absolutely. So, really, what you’re saying, Mayor Pete, is that you would continue to support having U.S. troops in Syria for an indefinite period of time to continue this regime change war that has caused so many refugees to flee Syria, that you would continue to have our country involved in a war that has undermined our national security, you would continue this policy of the U.S. actually providing arms in support to terrorist groups in Syria, like Al Qaida, HTS, al-Nusra and others, because they are the ones who have been the ground force in this regime change war? That’s really what you’re saying?

I could tell that Gabbard had had an outsized effect as the moderators let former Vice President Biden have the last word,

And with regard to regime change in Syria, that has not been the policy we change the regime. It has been to make sure that the regime did not wipe out hundreds of thousands of innocent people between there and the Iraqi border..

Gabbard must have struck a nerve. After the debate, the on the air commentary by the leftist punditry hit her for straying off the Democrat plantation on this particular issue. That continued in print today with VOX’s “Winners and Losers” column (emphasis mine)

The congresswoman from Hawaii has premised her entire candidacy on fierce opposition to US military adventurism abroad. Tonight, she had a chance to distinguish herself during a lengthy foreign policy debate — and made a series of blatantly false statements.

VOX goes on

The US is not waging a war of regime change in Syria (as Biden pointed out later in the debate). American troops are in northern Syria assisting Kurdish forces in combating the ISIS presence in the country. The reason Turkey invaded the Kurdish-held territory is that it sees the Kurds as terrorists and doesn’t want them to have a quasi-state on its border. And it was able to launch the invasion because President Donald Trump pulled out US troops.

But Gabbard’s comment wasn’t a one-off error. Again and again, Gabbard called for an end to the “regime war in Syria,” which is simply not what’s happening there. She bizarrely blamed the “regime change war” for the Syrian refugee crisis, instead of the murderous regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, which has indiscriminately attacked populated areas.

When Buttigieg challenged her shaky analysis, saying that “the slaughter going on in Syria is not a consequence of American presence, it a consequence of a withdrawal and a betrayal,” she accused him of supporting “endless war.” His response was succinct and devastating: “You can put an end to endless war without embracing Donald Trump’s policy, as you’re doing.”

In a post debate hot take, my colleague Bonchie had this to say

The United States miscalucated on Libya and Syria. That’s the point Gabbard has been consistently making, even when the rest of her party was cheer-leading those interventions. That may not matter to the talking head sitting in an MSNBC studio today, but it should matter to the rest of us, and whether you agree with Gabbard or not, at least be intellectually honest enough to admit that the war in Syria didn’t start in 2017.

Why was Gabbard cut off? Why has the entire leftist establishment gone after her? My colleague has indicated that the mainstream left, was protecting Elizabeth Warren…and possibly Joe Biden, though the jury is still out on that second part. I believe there is a lot more to it than that. They are protecting the legacy of President Barack Hussein Obama.

This whole Syria mess belongs to Obama. As I mentioned in a previous series of pieces on Syria (links below) President Obama, at the urging of his UN Ambassador Samantha Powers, supported by his National Security Advisor, Susan Rice, came up with a U.S. doctrine known as “Responsibility To Protect” or RTP. It is this failed doctrine that is responsible for the exaggerated death toll in the area.

But, the Obama/Powers doctrine didn’t start in Syria. Prior to its employment in Syria, it had already resulted in two key allied governments being overthrown and one allied President being murdered. In the case of Libya’s Qaddafi, then-Secretary of State Clinton was heard to cackle, “We came. We saw. He died.” Think about that. We supported and then celebrated the demise of a former hostile enemy who had made peace with us. We celebrated his murder in the street.

In Egypt, President Hosni Mubarak was also overthrown (but not murdered). His successor, a radical Islamist named Morsi, was vocally supported by the Obama Administration. Typical of the Obama/Powers foreign policy, a cooperating ally was replaced with a hostile one, the more radical the better. Fortunately, Morsi was toppled by a popularly backed military coup and Egypt ultimately elected a President who, after Obama’s departure, has sought closer ties with the U.S. and extended cooperation with Israel.

In Syria, the Obama administration thought they could extend their tough-guy foreign policy by toppling yet another dictator. Once again they would hide behind the skirts of RTP while trying to depose Bashar al-Assad. Assad was in the middle of a civil war, a leftover result from the same “Arab Spring” upheavals that made Qaddafi and Mubarak vulnerable.

What the Obama-Powers team did next, is why we now have a situation where we are in confrontations with a NATO ally and Syrian backed Russian forces, as we try to defend two groups of terrorists. President Obama just had to meddle in the Syrian civil war, a conflict that had absolutely no negative impact on the interests of the United States. What this did, was convince President Assad that he needed some help—and fast. So what did he do? He invited in the Russians, sweetening the pot with what they’ve always wanted—a port for their navy.

The Russians being good military partners, also brought some ground troops and some airplanes. They had enough airplanes flying patrol, that we had to establish a hotline with their field commanders to “deconflict” our flights and theirs. I’ve mentioned before that, according to international conventions, which we are a signatory to, if a Russian aircraft downed a U.S. plane over Syria, killing the pilot, we would be at fault. That’s right. The Russians are there at the invitation of the legal sovereign in Syria. We, on the other hand, are in a foreign country without its permission.

Meanwhile, ISIS was getting some traction in Iraq and Northern Syria. What did the Obama Administration do? It decided to once again take on “partners” of questionable character, namely two Kurdish terrorist organizations, the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) and the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) (Turkish Kurds). These two groups indeed did a fine job in killing ISIS fighters, which they would have done anyhow as they were already fighting them. But as they seized ground in Northern Syria, they also killed their fair share of Christians and destroyed priceless antiquities—something Assad did not do. A big part of his long term support in Syria was that he left Christians and the Druze alone.

Now that the ISIS threat was gone, President Erdogan wanted to rid himself of the danger a border enclave of SDF and PKK would pose to his country. Remember, tens of thousands of Turks have been killed in PKK terrorist attacks. Erdogan had a righteous concern. So, he gave his NATO ally due notice and sent his Army to clean up the border area. President Trump, wisely not wanting to get involved in an anti-terrorism operation by a NATO ally, nor put U.S Troops unduly at risk, got our folks out of the way.

Interestingly, far from being totally massacred, the SDK and the PKK now have found new allies—Syria and the Russians. In not too long a time, the revolutionaries who were trying to break free from Assad, are now voluntarily back in the fold, Assad is more firmly entrenched in power and now the Russians have their very own port and increased influence in the area. All of this as a result of President Obama sticking his nose into other countries’ business. However, where we are now, does provide a clue as to how we get out of this imbroglio. Stay tuned.

If two trains leave Tulsa at 3 p.m., 1 traveling at 75 mph and the other 85, and if the first goes east and the other west, how long will it take for them to be 487 miles apart?

The answer: White cisgender b*st*rds have systematically subjugated all others through social constructs and capitalistic manifestations of the inherent patriarchal evil.

Perhaps you haven’t learned the new math, but there’s a lot of it goin’ ’round.

But for those of you who understand that objectivity is outdated and not subscribing to microagressions is a microagression and commiting a microagression is a macroagression, do we have a job for you.

Dr. Kate Clancy is offering the opportunity of a lifetime to one lucky “anti-racist, intersectional feminist biologist” jonesing for a PhD.

If you’ve always wanted to study how…

Well, I’ll just let her tell it:

“Are you an anti-racist, intersectional feminist biologist looking for an awesome lab in which to get your PhD? Want to study how environmental stressors (including those from structural racism/sexism) influence women’s & gender diverse people’s reproductive function?”

She’s nothing if not specific. Because, what if you were a racist intersectional feminist biologist? Wrong fit.

But if you’ve got the goods, she’s sittin’ on go to “advocate for you”:

According to her Twitter profile, Kate’s an associate professor at the University of Illinois. Her interests: “Harassment, discrimination, stress, and menstrual cycles.”

Apparently, she also hosts the Period Podcast, “a podcast about ladypart science.”

And if you’re worried about sexual violence in the world, Kate’s fixing it:

As for the job opening, she’s got some interest:

“Can I get a second PhD? Because I think I would love that environment!”

“I mean… it’s too late for me. But are you looking for postdocs?”

“Is the fall start strict? I have a current masters student who would be really interested in this, but doesn’t finish until end of 2020!”

“If this had been two years ago I would have been there in a second! Doing my PhD already but if/when you’re looking for a post doc in a few years, you’ll hear from me so quick”

Some naysayers got serious:

“Dr. Clancy, you should come see the institutional racism and slaughter of whites in South Africa. Some liberals calls it payback. Was never this bad under Apartheid though. Read the book “Kill the Boer” by Ernst Roets.”

“Makes me highly suspicious of your work. The study of biology should have no political leaning, and to recruit on ideological bent is a huge red flag. I knew this crap was in the humanities, but it seems it’s metastasising…”

“If you had any sense whatsoever you would completely and utterly ashamed of yourself for spreading this ideological excrement. It is truly a a clear indication of a deep disorder of the mind.”

And there was this head-scratcher:

But then there were these:

And this:

I’m posting this one mostly for the screen name:

And just in case you’re interested in the opening but intimidated by Kate’s academic disposition, she’s a chick who can get casual with the best of ’em:

Elton John Comes Through – Again – and Has a Lot to Say About George W. Bush

Hey, you know that idea that you can’t be friends with someone if you disagree?

Well, its dumb.

Spread the word — there are lots of people who apparently haven’t heard.

For some reason, many folks — I think it’s not wholly wrong to say, mostly from the left side of the aisle — have fancied separating from friends and previously-loved ones who vote differently as some sort of virtue.

It isn’t, of course, and whenever you weaken the fabric of family and community, you weaken the fabric of the country.

And someone who’s aware of that fact is Sir Elton John.

Among the hoopla over Ellen DeGeneres — say it ain’t so — talking and joking with George W. Bush at an NFL game, the “Candle in the Wind” hitmaker had a thing or two to say.

“I admire Ellen for standing up and saying what she said.”

He was referring to her defense — her claim that she and W. are friends, and that’s how it’s s’posed to go.

Speaking to NPR, he Amen’d her message of true tolerance — that is, one that goes both ways.

In case you missed it, here’s Ellen being as right as Sweet Irish Creme in your favorite K cup confection:



Back to Elton, he delivered more of the good goods:

“George Bush has made a lot of mistakes. I made a lot of mistakes. Ellen DeGeneres has made a lot of mistakes. People need to come together.”

As per Fox News, the singer lamented the current state of affairs:

“Unfortunately, what our democracy has become now is that it’s not okay to have different opinions than yours. And that is not healthy.”

He even praised W. for launching the $85 billion 50-country-wide AIDS initiative PEPFAR — the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief.

“PEPFAR came from the Republicans. People have to remember that. … [It’s] the most incredible thing a Republican president has done on a philanthropic level.”

“[People] need to respect people’s views on life,” Elton said.

“Except when it’s heresy, and I don’t think George Bush is that kind of guy.”

I’m thankful for his voice in this, as well as in a lot of other matters where he’s landed on a side some didn’t expect. The man performed at Rush Limbaugh’s wedding, for Pete’s sake.

And I’m grateful for “Goodbye, Yellow Brick Road,” my favorite song of his.

Do you have one?

Let us all know.

Representative Neal’s Proposal to End Surprise Medical Bills is a Trojan Horse for Government-Run Healthcare

Last week, House Ways and Means Committee Chairman, Massachusetts Democrat Richard Neal proposed a new way for dealing with the problem of hospitals overcharging out-of-network patients. As part of his proposal, the Health and Human Services, Labor, and Treasury departments would form a committee to set prices on out-of-network care. In other words, his plan is a Trojan horse to sneak government-run healthcare past voters through the maze of bureaucracy.

It’s no secret that hospitals have been sending patients “surprise medical bills” for out-of-network care. And the name for this process comes from those surprising moments when you receive a $18,000 bill for a basic urine test that you thought insurance covered. In far too many cases, Americans have been receiving these exorbitant medical bills because the hospital they were treated at ended up being outside of their insurance network.

However, the solution to this problem is not for the federal government to implement government price-setting, and the American people seem to agree. A poll published earlier this year found that only 13 percent of voters support government-run healthcare.

Rep. Neal’s proposal bucks the voices of the American people and serves as a vehicle for resurrecting the Obamacare “death panels,” sanctioning government bureaucrats to decide who gets covered for life-saving treatments.

Given the unfavorable poll numbers surrounding this issue, Congressional Democrats are hesitant to be the face of a government price-fixing plan. So, now they have outsourced the work to unaccountable bureaucrats and insurance lobbyists who have no public constituency and face no consequences for their actions. Simply put, they are working in the shadows.

Sadly, we’ve seen this before.

During the Obama administration, lobbyists for the nation’s largest insurance companies dictated healthcare policy. Insurers got a great return on their $243 million investment in lobbying for Obamacare: what’s better for business than the government forcing people to purchase your product?

Those who championed the legislation said it was an existential threat to big insurance companies—but that demonstrably wasn’t the case. In fact, insurance companies supported it; and they repaid the favor to Elizabeth Fowler, Obamacare’s architect, and 30 other former Obama administration officials, with cushy lobbying gigs.

Obamacare triggered the ongoing problem of fewer options and rising healthcare costs. And this particularly hits home for many rural areas, where, in many cases, Americans only have  one choice for their healthcare provider. And like Obamacare, Rep. Neal’s proposal would be another bailout for insurance companies at the expense of these rural patients and millions of other Americans.

Neal’s proposal, however, could take several years to implement and there’s no guarantee Republicans will be in power to prevent its application. If Republicans don’t stop this proposal now, there is a possibility that they could be handing over price-fixing authority to a Democratic president, who will most certainly use it as a vehicle to push forward their plan for socialized healthcare.

Rather than supporting a price-setting proposal, congressional Republicans, such as Senators Ben Sasse, Deb Fischer, and Thom Tillis, who represent many rural communities, should instead support Senator Bill Cassidy’s bill. The STOP Surprise Medical Bills Act, which would prevent excessive out-of-network costs (and those surprise medical bills).

>In the end, Congressman Neal’s proposal is another Washington concoction that takes power away from patients and concentrates it in the hands of bureaucrats and lobbyists. Congressional Republicans must stand against this proposal and stand on the side of the American people.

>State Representative Wayne Sasser is a pharmacist and serves as a Republican member of the North Carolina General Assembly.

On Former US Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch

Obama appointee Yovanovitch is being feted by the legacy media lately, as well as praised by Deep Stater leakers like Fiona Hill (formerly on the NSC staff). Here’s one example:

Fiona Hill, a former top National Security Council expert on Russia, praised ousted U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch during testimony on Monday before the House Intelligence Committee. Fox News has learned that Hill, who is testifying before the committee as part of the House’s impeachment inquiry into President Trump, had high praise for Yovanovitch during the closed-door session. Yovanovitch, who herself testified before congressional lawmakers last Friday as part of the impeachment probe, was recalled from her ambassadorship in May by Trump.

Read the rest here. Here is the virulently anti-Trump Vanity Fair chiming in with the usual “unnamed sources”:

“Folks were surprised to see a colleague as professional and talented as Masha Yovanovitch asked to leave Ukraine early. But sometimes that happens,” a former high-ranking State Department official told me. “That sentiment became shock, horror, and outrage when the presidential phone call came out.” Pompeo, after all, is tasked with defending U.S. diplomatic interests around the world—a mission that theoretically includes defending his staff from political corruption.

“It is unconscionable that he would have been on the phone while one of his team was being trashed by the president of the United States,” said another former senior State official.“Not that I would have said that he should have interrupted the phone call, but there should have been something said somewhere along the way to support her and her integrity and everything else. He is a Trump quisling. What can I say?”

Read the rest of this political hit-job here. Is it any wonder that these quoted clowns are now “former” State Dept employees? And “former” likely means Obama hacks. These people forget that their jobs are to execute US foreign policy, not undermine it, and serve at the President’s pleasure.

Yovanovitch was nominated for the post of US ambassador to Ukraine in May 2016, not coincidentally right in the middle of the counter-intel investigation on the Trump campaign. She was fired by @POTUS almost three years later to the day. Inquiring minds wonder why. Despite the praise for her from Deep State sources, there is more to her story, including breaking news on what she was doing in Kyiv. First of all, a little pushback is in order courtesy of a trusted source quoted here:

  • I did some research on who this woman is. It appears her father was a Soviet and her mother a German communist. They immigrated to Canada (date unknown) and their daughter was born in Montreal in 1958. In 1961, they moved to Connecticut where she attended elite private schools. They spoke Russian at home. No indications of how her family earned their living. At 18 she became a US citizen and attended Princeton where she majored in Russian history and graduated in 1980. She then moved to Moscow and attended a Soviet language School, but there are no further indications of what she did from 1980-86. She joined the State Dept in 1986. She advanced rapidly.
  • In 2001, after 14 years in the State Department, she attended the National Defense University and received her MA. This is fairly normal, as the State Department sends Foreign Service Officers with 12-16 years of service to school with military officers with 20-24 years of commissioned service. The difference shows and is stark.
  • In 2008, after 22 years in the State Dept, she became the US Ambassador to Armenia (appointed in the final months of the Bush 43 Administration) and served until 2011 (Obama) at which time she became the ambassador to Kyrgyzstan for one year. Both times she appears to have been focused on human rights issues. That makes sense under President Obama’s and Secretary Clinton’s priorities.
  • In 2013, she became the Deputy Commandant of the Eisenhower School at the National Defense University for one year until 2014. From 2014-2016 she was the Dean of the State Department’s Language School.
  • In 2016, she was nominated as the US Ambassador to Ukraine late in the Obama Administration. Her focus was again on human rights and LGBTQ rights.
  • Well over a year ago, Texas Congressman Pete Sessions claimed to have received numerous complaints from fellow congressmen about her open anti-Trump views in the lead-up to the election and subsequently thereafter. She has made financial donations to Democrat candidates but not Republican ones. There are no indications that she is or ever has been married or has a family.
  • The US State Department is the epicenter and founding member of the Deep State. It has, for 80 years, tried to forge its own foreign policy regardless of the direction of the Executive Branch. Hence the need for political appointees to ambassadorships and special envoys. Often, US embassies become the representatives for foreign countries versus the US representatives to the applicable nation.
  • When President Obama ordered US embassies to fly the LGBTQ flag, not one failed to do so. But, when the Trump Administration made embassies request permission to fly it, many just flew it anyway. This is the merest tip of the iceberg. Defiance is their stock in trade.
  • Ambassador Yovanovitch spent her entire career interfering in the internal policies, elections and laws of foreign nations in her push for US human rights political correctness. To assume that a career foreign service officer would not have made negative comments overseas about a Trump victory over her former boss and role model (Clinton) would take a special kind of denial mechanism.

And this – among other things – is EXACTLY what she has denied:

Yovanovitch defended herself against what she called ‘unfounded and false claims by people with clearly questionable motives,’ including a rumor that she had handed Ukraine’s top prosecutor a list of people who were not to be charged with crimes. She also dismissed public allegations that she had ‘supposedly told the Embassy team to ignore the President’s orders “since he was going to be impeached”.’ She rejected the contention that she was running interference for Joe Biden and his son, Hunter, as Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani has claimed in what he has cast as an effort to protect the Bidens and Hillary Clinton while undermining Trump.

Read the rest here. Note that we have to look to the foreign press for the aforementioned denials because those denials might make thoughtful people wonder as to the truth of the accusations, further undermining the Democrats’ bastardization of the real crimes committed in Ukraine. And speaking of crimes committed, it’s likely that Yovanovitch herself committed a few as well. Thankfully, Judicial Watch is on the job yet again:

Judicial Watch is investigating if prominent conservative figures, journalists and persons with ties to President Donald Trump were unlawfully monitored by the State Department in Ukraine at the request of ousted U.S. Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch, an Obama appointee. Yovanovitch testified “in secret” to the House impeachment inquiry against Trump on Friday, October 11, 2019. Her “secret” testimony was leaked to the New York Times during the hearing.

Judicial Watch has obtained information indicating Yovanovitch may have violated laws and government regulations by ordering subordinates to target certain U.S. persons using State Department resources. Yovanovitch reportedly ordered monitoring keyed to the following search terms: Biden, Giuliani, Soros and Yovanovitch. Judicial Watch has filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request with the State Department and will continue gathering facts from government sources.

Prior to being recalled as ambassador to Ukraine in the spring Yovanovitch reportedly created a list of individuals who were to be monitored via social media and other means. Ukraine embassy staff made the request to the Washington D.C. headquarters office of the department’s Bureau of European and Eurasian Affairs. After several days, Yovanovitch’s staff was informed that the request was illegal and the monitoring either ceased or was concealed via the State Department Global Engagement Center, which has looser restrictions on collecting information.

“This is not an obscure rule, everyone in public diplomacy or public affairs knows they can’t make lists and monitor U.S. citizens unless there is a major national security reason,” according to a senior State Department official. If the illicit operation occurred, it seems to indicate a clear political bias against the president and his supporters.

Read the rest here. That sure seems like Judicial Watch has credible information, doesn’t it? Both her denials to the contrary and also the Deep Staters and Democrats rallying around her in legacy media articles ring pretty hollow, don’t they? It looks like she was fired for cause after all! And if that’s not enough, Tom Fitton subsequently tweeted out a list of those targeted by Yovanovitch. The posse is getting closer!

Finally, there is this from the Wall Street Journal that explains the reasons for her firing, contrary to the denials of her and the Democrats:

President Trump ordered the removal of the ambassador to Ukraine after months of complaints from allies outside the administration, including his personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani, that she was undermining him abroad and obstructing efforts to persuade Kyiv to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden, according to people familiar with the matter. State Department officials were told this spring that Ms. Yovanovitch’s removal was a priority for the president, a person familiar with the matter said. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo supported the move, an administration official said.

Read the rest here.

To summarize:

  • Yovanovitch – whose parents were Commies – became a career State Dept employee and eventually a US ambassador twice-over, ending up in Kyiv.
  • She was a loyal Democrat operative in service of Obama and the Clintons and looks to have been groomed exactly as a trusted agent to protect Democrat interests (corruption) in Ukraine. She was also unquestionably anti-Trump and acted accordingly.
  • She was fired for cause by @POTUS in May 2019 despite continued frantic attempts by Democrat-controlled media and various Deep Staters to spin that firing otherwise in order to limit their criminal exposure in Ukraine and “get Trump.”
  • She almost certainly requested the illegal monitoring of US citizens from her post in Kyiv in order to support covering up Democrat crimes in Ukraine.

Her story is a work-in-progress and likely won’t end the way the Democrats and their media allies think it will end. How did a woman born to two Communist parents end up as a career US foreign service officer? It is long past time for a reinstitution of loyalty oaths at Foggy Bottom and in every US embassy worldwide, as well as routine polygraphs and tough personnel interviews to ferret out the rats. Oh, and maybe a complete swap-out of US embassy personnel in Kyiv is in order, too!

The end.
