  1. "Reporter Lisa Mascaro of the Tribune news service called it “the most sizable shifts of partisan allegiance ever in Pennsylvania.” 61,500 Democrats have become Republicans so far this year, part of a 145,000 jump in Republican registrations since the fall 2015 election, according to state figures analyzed by both parties. It’s more new Republicans than in the previous four years combined. GOP frontrunner Donald Trump is predicted to benefit from the shift on Tuesday when Pennsylvania voters head to the polls. “The party-switching has been going on in an evolutionary way for two decades. This just propelled it faster,” said Franklin and Marshall University professor G. Terry Madonna. “Many of them are Reagan Democrats – white, working-class, blue-collar, incomes of $35,000 to $40,000 or less, high school educations or less.” “They feel frustrated, they feel left behind,” Madonna added. “They feel Trump is sticking it to the man.”"
  2. ""Marco was a senior support center analyst in Abbott’s IT department. On Friday April 22, he clocked out for the last time at Abbott Laboratories in northern Chicago, Illinois, along with 200 other information technology workers. Thanks to the cheap H-1B visa pipeline sponsored by both political parties in Washington, Marco was laid off and pressured to retrain his foreign replacement from Indian offshore outsourcing firm Wipro. This is the same Dig Your Own Grave phenomenon that victimized tech workers at Disney, Southern California Edison, Emblem Health, Cargill, AIG, Cisco, Qualcomm, Intel, Fossil, and so many others that John Miano and I spotlighted in Sold Out. It’s a practice almost everyone in Washington will say they condemn in front of the cameras, but do nothing about behind closed doors."
  3. "As the man walked toward the exit with the cash, several customers tackled him. In the struggle, one round was fired by the man, narrowly missing a patron. As they held him down, they took his gun and placed it on the bar while waiting for police to arrive. "I'm very lucky to have a really good crew of patrons and customers," said owner Crystal Stockwell. "I love them all and these guys happened to be on hand, the best ones here, the biggest ones here, which was unfortunate for this guy." Deshantin Najhee Motley, 25, was accused of attempted murder, two counts of first-degree robbery, unlawful use of a weapon and felon in possession of a firearm. He also was being held for failure to register as a sex offender and a parole violation." This vid has his previous mug shots:
  4. "“Hustlers and people with little understanding want us to believe that today’s black problems are the continuing result of a legacy of slavery, poverty and racial discrimination." "When we look at the failures in the black community today, there seem to be lots of “activists” who want to tell us the problem lies in poor police relations — militant policing and presence. Recently, I was on NPR’s Diane Rehm Show. The issue was about the black community and the other guests ranted on about everything other than what the real problem is — the decimation of the black family. Now, I must apologize because I’ve been sharing that the illegitimacy rate in the black community was 72 percent. I was wrong. It’s now 75 percent."

  8. PDF: List of letter writers supporting Dennis Hastert TV Producer Jeff Probst is one of them.
  9. "Hastert’s friends however, including ex-House Majority Leader Tom Delay, are pleading with the Judge to soften the sentence as much as possible. Delay stated in the letter, citing his experience with Hastert at a Wednesday Bible study he regularly held: ‘So I know his heart and have seen it up close and personal. We all have our flaws, but Dennis Hastert has very few. He is a good man that loves the lord. He gets his integrity and values from Him. He doesn’t deserve what he is going through. I ask that you consider the man that is before you and give him leniency where you can.’ Others, however, have been very quick to point out the former Speaker’s career-long hypocrisy, regarding his harsh stances on sex offender laws during his stint in politics. One of these voices, Gail Colletta of the Florida Action Committee, had this to say on that matter: ‘Today there are over eight hundred thousand individuals in the United States on sex offender registries. Some, like Mr. Hastert, committed heinous crimes against multiple victims, but others committed non-violent, one-time offenses, yet are being punished for life as a consequence of the harshly punitive laws that Mr. Hastert passed. ‘As you consider the appropriate sentence for Mr. Hastert, I sincerely hope you will keep in mind the 800,000 other victims of Mr. Hastert’s, who are serving decades, if not a lifetime under ineffective and unduly harsh laws that were passed as a result of his hypocritical and self-serving actions.’"
  10. "Everyone knows that academia is predominantly liberal: Only 6.6% of professors in the social sciences are Republicans, according to a 2007 study. But what is life like for the pioneering conservatives who slip through the ivory tower’s gates? We decided to find out by interviewing 153 of them. Many conservative professors said they felt socially isolated. A political scientist told us that he became a local pariah for defending the Iraq war in his New England college town, which he called “Cuba with bad weather.” One sociologist stated the problem well: “To say a strong conservative political opinion with conviction in an academic gathering is analogous to uttering an obscenity.” A prominent social scientist at a major research university spoke of the strain of concealing his political views from his colleagues—of “lying to people all the time.” Some even said that bias had complicated their career advancement. A historian of Latin America told us that he suffered professionally after writing a dissertation on “middle-class white guys” when it was fashionable to focus on the “agency of subaltern peoples.” Though he doesn’t think the work branded him as a conservative, it certainly didn’t excite the intellectual interest of his peers."

  12. "1: “Civilization Will End Within 15 or 30 Years.” Harvard biologist Dr. George Wald warned shortly before the first Earth Day in 1970 that civilization would soon end “unless immediate action is taken against problems facing mankind.” Three years before his projection, Wald was awarded the Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine. ... 2: “100-200 Million People Per Year Will Be Starving to Death During the Next Ten Years.” Stanford professor Dr. Paul Ehrlich declared in April 1970 that mass starvation was imminent. His dire predictions failed to materialize as the number of people living in poverty has significantly declined and the amount of food per person has steadily increased, despite population growth. The world’s Gross Domestic Product per person has immeasurably increased despite increases in population. ... 3: “Population Will Inevitably and Completely Outstrip Whatever Small Increases in Food Supplies We Make.” Paul Ehrlich also made the above claim in 1970, shortly before an agricultural revolution that caused the world’s food supply to rapidly increase."
  13. "“Teachers should be paid to teach,” attorney Kara Sweigart, who is arguing ghost teacher lawsuits for the Fairness Center, a free legal service for employees who feel they’ve been wronged by their unions, told Watchdog. “At a time when school districts are hurting financially, districts should be devoting every tax dollar to support students,” she said, “not to pay the salaries of employees of a private political organization.” According to public salary data available through Philadelphia city agencies, the school district is paying 16 ghost teachers $1.5 million this year. All of them are making at least $81,000."
  14. What is 'Neoliberalism' "Neoliberalism is a policy model of social studies and economics that transfers control of economic factors to the private sector from the public sector. It takes from the basic principles of neoclassical economics, suggesting that governments must limit subsidies, make reforms to tax law in order to expand the tax base, reduce deficit spending, limit protectionism, and open markets up to trade. It also seeks to abolish fixed exchange rates, back deregulation, permit private property, and privatize businesses run by the state. Liberalism, in economics, refers to a freeing of the economy by eliminating regulations and barriers that restrict what actors can do. Neoliberal policies aim for a laissez-faire approach to economic development." I do not agree with his definition.
  15. "Ryan Alan Krietsch, 33, was arrested Thursday night in San Diego on a sexual assault charge, a second-degree felony. Krietsch is accused of having sex with a Saint John Paul II student, where he worked from August 2013 to August 2015. Krietsch resigned from his job in Corpus Christi to work at San Diego ISD as a world geography teacher and assistant boy's basketball coach, until stepping down in February. Both schools issued statements Friday stating they are cooperating with authorities in the investigation. The student's parents contacted Corpus Christi police after the father of another student told them the teen would sneak out at night to have sex with Krietsch, according to the arrest affidavit. When the parents confronted their daughter about the issue, she admitted to sneaking out of the house and meeting with Krietsch, but said they only kissed. The mother confiscated her daughter's cellphone, and found information that seemed to indicate the daughter had had sex with Krietsch."
